Burrows and Badgers - Otter Mercenary

Very well painted, lovely mini too..

 

For the gems, there are great tutorials on youtube you can check out. But the gist of the matter is that, the light acts in total contrast to what you expect in a gem. I mean, the top portion of the gem is drk, almost black, gets gradually lighter as you get to the botom and has a very light "line" of almost white near the very bottom..

Thank you for the tips! I used a drawing as reference but next time I will try to find a miniature with lots of them. It seems I did it the wrong way around haha.

When you photograph a mini like this, either put it down on something, or use Blu-tack or similar to add a handle under the base so that you can hold him with your hand out of the picture. 

It takes very little extra effort and improves the pictures tremendously.

 

He is wonderfully painted. Love the purple sash.

 

So, which B&B mini will you do next?

I've got some B&B miniatures right here, and this is tempting me to shuffle around my queue and start a couple...

 

Anyway, to add on a bit to the photography, a simple piece of green or tan felt would do.  I'm attaching a samplepicture without miniatures so as not to mess up your thread. ::): There are photographic technical reasons why a mid tone is better than black or white...IMG_2379.thumb.jpg.c9fd65d4de25989c45cb591c116bed54.jpg

      One more mouse for the order of battle pool for Gencon.  I’m behind on basing, but should get to him over the weekend.

      With Gencon just a few weeks away, I need to finalize the three warbands I’m responsible for in our Burrows and Badgers game...so one more
      speed painted figure this
      morning. 50 minutes or so on this one.

      I haven’t picked up a brush in a couple of weeks, so I was happy to get
      over the painting block with an Oathsworn speed paint yesterday. (I wasn’t timing closely, but about an hour.) 
      I need four or five more figures before Gencon, where my brother and I will be staging a couple of B&B games. 
       
      The pictures are a little extra contrasty; I’ll add a follow-up once based.

      Today’s lunch project:
       

       

       
      Also speed practice, so this was 45 minutes on the timer.

      One more Burrows and Badgers figure for Gencon games...
       
      I’ll post more once I get the basing done, which may not be until Friday.
