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.

That color palette is great! It makes me think of a steampunk absinthe fairy

 

LOL I think I might add that to the character's persona!! She inspires people to happily drink! She's kinda a terrible princess. Ran off to be a bard with her aunt and has zero intention of settling down. Had a kid out of wedlock with an elf (elf raising kid - family except for aunt don't know). Yeah, she's a great bad influence ^_^

Lookin good!

 

I see you're using the blue tack to hold the mini on the cork, if you have trouble with this holding minis in place (I've had a few fall off) then the yellow kind will hold them more securely.  It should be equally easy to find, if you ever have one that likes to bungee jump without a cord to the work desk.

What is brand for the yellow stuff?

 

Also: worked on the trim a bit more and base coated some metal and the boots. I am taking some liberty on what is "metal" for sake of looking cool.

Figure is kinda turning into A Saga of Low Coverage. 

 

I'm using Reaper's High Density paint Rich Leather, shook it a bunch, and the coverage is icky. Even on just white primed areas it is blah. On areas getting tidied, worse. I'm using it on leather fiddly bits. Not my favorite brown at all. My other browns are solid. 

I am not thinning this aside from damp brush either.

More progress. I will do a bunch of lightning and hearts freehanding on her accessories - her band name is going to be Shocked Heart. Larger satchel, scabbard, and guitar will have patterning.

      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.
