Thank you! So funny you both comment on the base. I hate basing! It is a piece of bark glued to a round base. I painted it brown and then dry brushed with browns and greys then sloshed with a wash. The rest is tufts and vines glued on with some real leaves that I used a leaf punch on (dried and coated in matte sealer). So thank you for thinking the base looks nice too!

It looks awesome!

Maybe you hate doing basing and did a quick job on it..but it works.

The items are placed in a convincing manner and it really enhances the mini!

Wow. Great work.

 

Ahh - it somehow makes me want to watch or play Silence again.

 

The basing, the figure - everything works perfectly together.

 

Thank you for sharing it with us!

You know honestly, the more I've started going down this hobby rabbit hole, the more I like basing in large part because of what you said right there. It doesn't often take much to really make the mini standout. I might spend a few weeks (mainly because I don't paint every day) working on a mini and it looks decent (for me) but then can whip out a base in less than an evening (once its been primed) and suddenly it looks loads better. One of my goals for this year is to start expanding my basing options more just to provide more flavor to my minis.

Funny thing is that when I looked at the unpainted miniature holding what looked to be a hockey stick, I figured it was a Little Boy. Be that as it may she is a WONDERFULLY painted AND based (bases are my thing) creation.

Your eye for colors & flowers are FANTASTICVERY WELL DONE!

That is one of my hobby resolutions for this year as well. I want to figure out how to make nice bases. I have to force myself to base things otherwise I would just have a ton of painted minis stuck to corks and Tropicana lids! Haha!

I think I originally thought it was a little boy (and it could be used for one) until I read her background story for Pathfinder.

Awesome!  I am always amazed at how small you can paint!

 

Like others have said the base is super cool!

 

It is a combination of good brushes and holding my breath! Haha! On paint day, my friend teases me by yelling at me to breathe and asking if I have passed out yet. He also brings me cups of coffee and says it is to help steady my hands. Funny guy!

 

I was cleaning out my laundry room the other day (which is where my shelving unit is that I store my hobby stuff) and my husband picked up my little container of bark and was going to throw it away. I practically tackled him!

Very nice.

 

I know she's cute and all, but I can't help feeling like I'm being lured into a trap...

 

She may make an appearance in the game I run. I haven't decided yet who I want her to be or how I want to use her. She does have that look of, "Oh, thank goodness I found someone. Can you help me? It's just right over this way....."

      Good day everyone, here is my take at 89031, Tar-Baphon the Whispering Tyrant sculpted by Bobby Jackson. The 77531, Graveyard Fence Posts are also fron Reaper and were sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

      There's a patch of wasteground on Beechwood Avenue where the old primary school used to stand until destroyed by a bomb on the afternoon of April 11, 1941.
       
      Locals have long said that spot is haunted. Pedestrians say there's a cold patch as you walk past it. Kids dare each other to touch the walls, although few actually will. Dogs shy away from the area.
       
      Some people even claim to have seen a small girl wearing a gasmask.
       
      This is all obviously rubbish.
       
      But Rose is still waiting for her mummy.

      My 5 1/2 yo son is super into Batman.  I had set up a Pathfinder game for the grownups, but only filled 2/4 seats.  My son has shown a little and growing interest in tabletop gaming.  So I made some stats for Batman as a Pathfinder character and used his LEGO Batman on the battle grid.
       
      Here are how it came out: attributes were rolled.
      Race Human
      Class Ranger (Urban) lvl 1
      Str 16
      Dex 19 (+2 human)
      Con 14 
      Int 13
      Wis 14
      Cha 8
       
      Favored Class Ranger +1 HP
      Trait: Rich Parents
      Trait: Deft Dodger (+1 Reflex)
      Favored Enemy Humanoid (human)
      Feat - Improved Unarmed Strike
      Feat Human - Exotic Weapon Prof - Shuriken
       
      Skills - don’t remember exactly, sheet isn’t in front of me:
      Acrobatics, Craft (alchemy), Disable Device, knowledge (local), perception, Survival, Stealth
       
      Gear- I took some liberties here for flavor:
      Mwk Studded Leather, Batarangs(shuriken shaped like a bat available in a lethal or non lethal variety), smoke bombs (combine thunderstone and smoke stick in one thrown item same price as both combined), Mwk thieves tools, sap, spiked gauntlets x 2 (his sharp things sticking out of his arms), Grapnel: (Light Crossbow + 50ft silk rope + Mwk grappling hook + 100gp to account for the “gnomish winch”) I would have loved to make it a hand crossbow, but didn’t want to waste two feats on exotics.  I just tacked on cost to the various gear to use up the gold from rich parents and still leave him with a good kit.
       
      He made level two and I chose an alt. Option for weapon style: thrown weapon.  That gave him bonus feat of Precise Shot without needing Point Blank Shot, but I plan on adding it later.
       
      Let me know what you think.
       
      My son didn’t have the attention span to stay at the table for long: his cousins were in the pool, so he ended up there.  My friend always plays the Cleric, but he ran Batman as a second character and had a blast with it.

      The Whispering Tyrant from the second Bones kickstarter. This is an officially licensed Pathfinder miniature. So I guess it is some sort of evil adversary in some adventure or other in that game.
      For me, this is Loki. I expect you see why. To make the model even more similar to the trickster god, I cut off the central helment-thing and carved the helmet round. Which took me whole tens of seconds! Bones material is really easy to cut and convert. I will miss this aspect with the Bones Black minis.
      On this mini I have tried out some new colorshift paints from Green Stuff World and a flip paint (which is supposed to get the same effect) from Instar.
      I probably did not do it right, as I don't think it has much of a colorshifting effect (there is a slight effect, though). The instructions say to use a gloss black undercoat and many, many thin layers to get the effect.
      I did not do that. On a brown basecoat I used GSW Mystic Gold colorshift, and Instar Green Gold Flip, with GSW Tropical Green at the tips and edges. and I just glooped it on! Two or three thick coats of each paint is used here. So next time, maybe I should try actually following the instructions...
      Anyhow, this model will make a good leader for my undead legions, or even a C'Tan for the Necrons.
