Getting to Know Each Other, August 2017


Recommended Posts

8/2 There are lots of OOP minis I'd love. I really wish I'd gotten all the Guthrie Personalities when they were available through Mega Minis. The molds have since disappeared in the Center Stage Minis fiasco.

 

8/3 Converting the Bones Minotaur so the head is higher, and adding mail. Still in progress because I can't get it right.

Tha deff dumpster

I feel yer pain, both of yez. I am fortunate to have a partner who encourages me, though, with minis. "OMG! IT COMES WITH THAT MANY GOBLINS! GET IT! GET IT! WHAT? YOU WEREN'T GOING TO GET THOSE ADO

Yes. My current strategy is to keep clicking on things until there' nothing left to get.

N/A.  I have neither performed conversion nor sculpting, at least deliberately.  The closest I've gotten is using green stuff to fill gaps and a couple bases.  I may do conversion work eventually but I'm still working on making sure I can paint to (advanced?) tabletop quality.

I created this altar from foam.

Used Toy Snakes for this, sculpted a little stone works on the white one. Tanith's Altar

(Sorry for the late post again; moderating the Bones KS Threads is taking more time before work each day than anticipated)

This is the first and only time (so far) that I have ever used Green Stuff, making flames over a skeletal hand thingy:

I've never actually attempted a conversion or sculpting project. Not sure if I plan on doing any in the near future either.

I've replaced a few broken/missing weapons over the years, that's about as complicated as it gets.

Hey! I totally spaced off that miniature part! (ReaperCon games brainstorming)

 

Thanks!!

 

Awesome start, thou at first I thought it was a beginnings of a beholder. ::): 

 

As for me, I don't do much converting but my most successful conversion was making a reefclaw (Pathfinder aquatic creature) using a moray eel familiar & 2 crab claws. Facebook links

 

beginnings

 

Final conversion (before paint)

 

Thought I uploaded a painted pic but I guess not.

`I can't say I've done much with that side of the hobby. Normally I purchase something because I like how it looks, not because I plan to convert it into something else, so I've had very little reason to get into conversions.

A Skorne Titan Gladiator. The tiny second set of arms are cast into the lower torso piece so when I took them off I had to sculpt in the entire sides of the elephant. Then since I'd already gone that far I converted all my Titans into elephants with trunks. Because I was feeling far too literal that day and now I have an army theme to keep.

 

When I get a Cannoneer I'll convert it so the lit torch is being held in its trunk.

Sorry - I haven't done anything that I would consider a conversion/sculpting project.

August 3: Everything Mordheim. I wish I'd gotten the witch hunters and sisters of sigmar before they went out of print. Also the original strange faced Nagash. Unaffordable both then and now. 

August 4: I've done a few weapon swaps, no sculpting yet. I have a few things on my shelf that I aim to convert/add greenstuff to, but I'm holding off for now until I can reduce the Shelf of Impatient Minis Nagging Me To Paint Them.

(I needed to have a go at shooting more pictures anyway.)

 

It has to be this guy:

I need to find a way to reinforce the wings... ...nothing holding them but glue.

So I created a mirror for my one and only Gen Con entry ever. There is some suggestion of nudity so it's hosted on Photobucket. (I forgot I had one of those accounts)

http://photobucket.com/gallery/user/yerivf/media/cGF0aDovSU1HXzE1OTBfenBzNWY5NDRkZmYuanBn/?ref=

 

The figure has since come loose from her base. I will try to take a photo of the mirror tomorrow so I can post it here directly. 

I didn't understand how to handle greenstuff when I made this piece. I tried to cut it and deal with it like clay or plastilina. It's not. I think I have a better idea how to use it. Now I just need a fresh supply of green stuff. But not until after August 24th.

Yh... well. There's this thing I'm doing out of a lack of hooved tiefling... this has so far involved parts from ... three different miniatures and rather a lot of greenstuff... here's one, before I started on horns.

Horns came a little after, and one of them appears to have escaped, I need to find it and re-attach it. I filled in some holes in the shield, and did some other stuff... like the tail you can't see in either image.
