Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3

Recommended Posts

Edit - project is now live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/heroines-in-sensible-shoes-3-miniatures-for-rpgs

Starting on Monday, for probably 14 days, Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3 - Not every heroine is human.

Teaser pic, as there's only five minis sculpted so far! I'll be sculpting at least 7 more throughout the project, taking input and suggestions from the backers...

So far, there's a firbolg druid, tabaxi and kenku rogues, a minotaur barbarian, and a hobgoblin eldritch knight.

 

After consulting with our previous backers, the the most popular suggestions are - another tabaxi, probably either a monk or wizard; a tiefling wizard, and a tiefling paladin or cleric; another kenku (probably a magic user of some sort); a dragonborn paladin; a tortle (no ideas on class or equipment yet!); and finally a human barbarian, heavy, powerful build, but not lean.

 

I'm open to suggestions though, so if you have any, please let me know!

cheers

Michael

Hate to admit it but I don't think this one is going to be for me, mostly because of the strange races.

 

Best of luck with the kickstarter though. Hoping to take part in future ones.

It's a worry for me, to be honest. People are always telling me they can't get minis for these races, but then I wonder if that's because nobody wants them?

By Tuesday I'll probably be scrapping it and replacing them all with humans! :poke:

I think bringing in uncommon races is a brilliant choice!  I've had trouble finding decent kitsune minis.  Several of the guys I play PFS with have expressed the challenge of finding grippli or tengu minis as well.  Of course, quality female dwarf, gnome, or Halfling minis are also non-human characters that might appeal to those who don't want to go quite as monstrous?

Well there is that, but for me I think it's more that I'm simply old school and don't identify with these newer races.

 

Not to say I wouldn't be intrigued by an amazing sculpt. I think it's just in my brain I want to compartmentalize my minis and while I have accepted and collected animorphic characters such as yours, Darkswords, and Reapers Mouslings, I mentally place them in their own separate little gameworld, like that in your ruleset, and I'm good with that.

 

With this though, I'm more likely to wait and see and then afterwards perhaps place an order through your online store for any I fancy as well as those I've been wanting and missed from your earlier kickstarters.

 

We'll see. ::):

I'm super excited by the non-human races. need a female of any job so long as it's human elf or dwarf and you could literally drown in the options. tiefling or tabaxi and well you might have 1 to choose from, so long as you're only playing exactly the stereotypical kind.

 

ETA. tiefling paladin has me tingly.

I'm quite curious about these, human, non-human normal humanoid, and very non-human races.

The first two were great projects. 

good coms, great figures.  

I don't really need the non-human figures offered this time around, and my fiances are kind of strapped anyway.  

but ill keep an eye on future projects. 

 

and two of my favs were changed or sculpted completely during the previous campaigns.  (1/2 orc and Pregnant villager)

.. tiefling girls with cute hoofies? .. .. *hopeful*

I might be tempted if there were tiefling girls with hooves; those are absurdly hard to find; like tiefling guys with hooves. :/

I'll give a pass on nobody getting cloven hooves quite right, if only there were some!

 

Catfolk wearing clothing are also difficult to find..

Kickstarter is the perfect platform for it, however, because if the Kickstarter doesn't meet its goals, you don't waste time and money on production molds and product no one will buy.

 

I'm hoping for some Earthdawn/Shadowrun style Trolls: big hulking PCs with horns.

Might be that I'm a boring person or play with boring people, but personally I don't have any use for the crazy rare PC races.

Personally I would love to see some female elves in sensible shoes, the wood elf you already got in your store has nice facial features. While there are many female elves out there (as a humans), they seem to suffer from the whole, eh, barbie-fication more often than others.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      It's the weekend and you know what time it is!
       
      Got a terrifying little foursome going here this time.  Attempted a few new things that have been given to me as feedback over the last few weeks, so thought it was a good time to put them to use.
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Wins:
      * Sticking to a simple color scheme for the skin - trying to only use two tones and building up the colors.  Win - kind of.  More on that to come.
      * Making the chest area stand out from the rest of the skin I thank made for a fun touch.  Layering was done well, but learned a lot in doing it that next time could be easier.
      *  Eyes.  HOLY SMOKES!  I'm so happy with the eyes.  I did a blacked out eye area, filled in the round white, then used a black to dot in the center.  Was a shaking mess doing it?  You bet I was, but the outcome was worth it.  Each of them have eyes I'm very happy with.
      *  2 of them have a burnt umber ink wash 4:1 flow improver to DR Ink.  The wash went on well and settled into the seems, but I think there's still something I'm missing.  Had to go back with another coat and hit just the cracks for deeper color.  The other 2 were done with a diluted MSP Brown Liner.  The Brown Liner was the better of the two to really draw out the shadows, but still something to be desired.  However, both of these methods worked better than a GW wash that usually just dirties them up.
      *  Horns were pretty good prior to the wash I gave them in a transition from dark rust to a bone white.  I thought the ridges needed more depth so I washed it with that brown liner.  They dont' look bad, but they don't look as good as I hoped.  The win was learning this brown liner wash.
       
      Misses:
      * I tried washing over the leather colored kilt with a black wash.  Big miss!  Messy, wrong tone, and ruined it.  Had to do it again.
      *  Tried a red color for the waist cloth (same red you see on the eye-patched minitaur on his wrist bands) and it was too similar in color.  I was aiming for brighter colors to break up the model.  I don't think it worked.  Did it over again with MSP Leather.
      *  I hate the fabrics on their kilts.  None of them came out as I hoped.  Only one with decent turn out was the eye-patched guy with his kilt-o-faces.  
      *  Washes ended up heavy and very, very, very glossy.  So glossy in fact, I couldn't even tell if they were dry or just glossy.  Using flow improver on top of an ink is basically like making it glass.  Good to know, but not desired look.
      *  The swords and metal overall wasn't ideal.  Kind of dark for what I wanted.  I chickened out on the NMM.  Again.
       
      I'm happy to have these little guys done and don't think they are bad.  Just think they could have been better.  Getting to understand the washes, glossiness, what matte cote will do it after, and the eyes - oh those eyes, this was all a project worth doing even if it wasn't my ideal turnout.  Here they are.
       
      As always send me any feedback you got.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
