WIP 03098: Astrid by Cyr. Destressing Project


Recommended Posts

I read "chest" and was immediately interested.

 

Okay, afar from this really tasteful joke - I like her. Really great face and eyes.

 

I can absolutely imagine her looking at whoever is standing in front of her saying: "This is my lute. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My lute is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my lute is useless. Without my lute, I am useless. I must play upon my lute. I must play louder than my rival who ist trying to play his harp. I must play over him before he plays over me."

 

And then ... I can imagine how she continues: "And I do NOT like the green. In my opinion, it doesn't fit my character. Too bright. Too ... green. It is like a greenish version of Beatrix Kiddo. I don't like Beatrix Kiddo. She is brutal and mean. She is like steam. Steam is angry water. It makes my face hurt. And also ale."

 

The end.

 

 

(that was quite a number of references - wow. I am so proud of myself)

A bit more

So I've been stressing a lot over Life Things (but probably good things). Before going back to my super detail heavy awesome figure, I'm doing a figure for my D&D campaign. I'm using this one as o

Bit more work on it last night.

The colors do fit the world, even if I picked them haphazardly. The culture has exceptionally vivid colors - perhaps trying to compensate for the fact that they're led by ghosts. 

 

I can only tell what I feel. It is absolutely okay if that is the world you guys are playing in, but for me it is too bright and too green. It doesn't fit the overall paintjob. For me that is like painting the best mini I have ever painted and then put her in a pink playsuit.

 

But then again. That is MY opinion and I am just trying to pack it into a short and humorous comment that somehow fits a certain meme, picture or idea that the figure has given me.

You're typing to someone who wore solid hot pink and taught physics classes as Science Barbie for Halloween - bright colors are lots of fun sometimes. She doesn't even have the rest of her painted yet. It should come together. And as a bard, she gets to be extra flamboyant.

Yeah. You're right. I give up. Use whatever you want to use. But please. Don't let it be pink!

In a fast rummaging, I pulled up S'Kara, Female Skoli Warrior and a Bombshell Babe duelist that might be fun in pink. Pick something that could rock a pink, but isn't expected in pink?

@Pingo she looks appropriately pink. I am also going to make a Buffy reference here: Harmony. She's the perfect Pink Vampire. Bloodthirsty, strong, selfish.... and adores pink and sparkly unicorns. She isn't a classic vampire really, but she still has scary fangs.

      Assembled my crew and prepped and primed them. 
      Two clopsen troopers, a lizardman recruit, sniper and another recruit/ chisler.

      A gnoll commando, medic and recruit, and a cultist recruit/hacker and trooper.
       
      Edit: It is a bit funny that My crew isn't using much of the actual Stargrave miniatures other than a few arms and guns, but then this is just the first crew, and I'll need some ruffians and pirates as well.

      Well 2020 is over and even though the year wasn't so great I did get my dragon goal of 12 dragons completed (actually completed 15 !) So with the new year I'm looking to try it again.
       
      The last year I did a bunch of dragons from all eras a d makes.  This year I think I will make the challenge a little more specific.  This year I'll try for 12 dragons from defunct companies: grenadier, Ral Partha, Thunderbolt Mountain, heritage, and others that are no longer producing today.  Whether i include minis from companies that died recently, im not sure (and I  know Ral Partha lives on as Iron Wind and Grenadier lives on as Merltion?  But I'm including them because its my challenge and the ones I have are the originals. 
       
      That said the first piece I did was the Bridge of Sorrows.  It came out really well so I let my better half look through my old boxed sets and she chose the next one:  Clutch of Fear!
       
      This is another mini that I have had sitting in its box waiting for decades to be completed and its time has come (besides if I really mess up they have started recasting the molds again so its not an utter disaster. Also, since i have this one in the original box, I thought i would do a WIP to show how it goes.
       
      Here is what it look like when I opened the box...

       
      All the parts are there, including the instructions (more on those in the future) and an "inspected by 3" as well as assembly instructions.
       
      Hope you all enjoy the ride.  I'll try to be diligent with updates.

      So anyone who follows my planned goals for hobbying/painting in the Speed Painting subforum knows that I don't fair very well when it comes to monthly goals; I barely got one month's goal done last year. So this year I've decided to give myself a bit of leeway: an entire year to try to complete five hobby goals from 25 possibilities. The idea was inspired from Rob Hawkins' blog, that I've sporadically read for a few years.
       

       
      I've tried to tailor my card to areas in which I typically struggle yet still retain some fun, as well as to make sure that no path to victory is entirely easy for me. Given that I finished no models last year, this should still prove quite a challenge for me.
       
      A couple squares are time sensitive goals. To provide myself with a bit more incentive, I've decided to incorporate some health goals into the mix should I fail to achieve them. For example, if I'm attempting the assembly of 10 model in under a week, however many models I fall short by equals a number of physical exercises. I'm looking forward to it (both the exercise and getting through some of my stash).
       
      I'll do my best to post here so you all can keep me honest. Don't be afraid to ask me about my progress!

      Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting...
       

       
      The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.
