Interesting!  Here and I would have thought the thing going on with the base was just reflecting the overall dynamism of the figure.  :D  (Swoosh!)  I mean, unless I'd really stopped and THOUGHT about it.  I think I'd just gap-fill between the bottom of the base and a more conventional plastic base (as you have it pictured) and work with that, using some epoxy putty.

 

Anyway, it looks awesome!  :)

Nice OSL.

The base makes him look as if he was surfing/snowboarding, especially with his pose.
The lava surfing ghost!!! Lived an exciting life, leads an even more exciting death!

Looks fantastic! 

I'd love to give more critique but you are far beyond my talent level.

 

Thanks, Schirf, but I disagree on the talent thing.  Your moorhound is a really good piece of work that shows you know how to shade and highlight different types of textures, you have good brush control and a good eye for colour.  If this directional lighting project inspires you then you should pick out a mini and try it.  You've got the necessary foundation skills.

He looks much better without the square plastic base, for sure.  He just doesn't stand up properly without some support.  I don't want to cut off the stone base because it really adds to the sense of light direction.  I may pop him off the square base and just build up a disc of greenstuff under him that keeps him basically level and not wobbly, and which is not as jarring visually as the square base.

I really appreciate your confidence! I actually just got the Bones 3 core set so, I should have plenty to practice with. Guess we'll see what happens. Thank you!

      Finally finished an NPC mage that plays a recurring role in my campaign. Now that she’s done the party will probably never return to her castle .. fun to paint

      It's the perfect time of year to show off this little collection of spooky minis!
       

       
      Giant Bats 44040

       
      These little guys are adorable.  They're pretty simple, and it's hard to pick out details in their faces, but I think they're fantastic little minis.  Though their size clearly makes them giant bats, I can definitely see myself using them as "normal-sized" bats for Wildshape or Familiar purposes.  I specifically used the Little Brown Bat as my coloration reference.

      Harrowgate Shrine 77723
      Next up is a bit of scatter terrain.  This is one of the two models in the Harrowgate Shrines set.

      What could it be?  An ancient omen?  The gravestone for a horrific creature?  Or perhaps the beast itself is encased in stone!
      It's not the most exciting of models, but I thought it fit nicely with this little set.  I probably should have based it, but I like basing scatter pieces on flat bases and didn't have one the right size for this.  Might base it in the future.

      Werebat 77448
      And rounding out this set we have the big baddie: the werebat!

      I really like how dynamic this guy is.  Really get the sense he's about to lunge at you, or take off to the skies.  I painted him up like the giant bats.  Don't love the paintjob, but it works.  I really like how his base turned out though.  The model comes on a roughly 1" circular base, but he's pretty top heavy.  I didn't want to give him a 2" base, but I'm really starting to enjoy basing these oversized models on 40mm rounds.  Especially with that tapering rim, they fit nicely without looking out-of-scale compared to other "medium" sized creatures.

      So what's the story?  What would you use these minis for?

      Good Friday everyone, here are pictures of the mini I'll be using as a necromancer in my upcoming D&D game.
      14060, Leisynn the mercenary mage is one of my top 5 favorite model. It was sculpted by Tim Prow for the Warlord game.

      Who let the dogs out (of hell)?

      Hi everyone.  Back again with some infernal pooches.
       

       
      These are the Hell hounds from the Bones 4 Fan Favorites Expansion.  They were fun and challenging.  All those glowing lava details were a pain.  I think I managed to get them to turn out alright though.  Also had fun with the lava bases.
       
      More Photos of the Hell Hounds beneath the spoiler:
       
      In all, I like these guys.  Their bases were a lot of fun and really pop from a lot of my other minis.  I'll be posting more of my infernal collection soon, but figured these were a great place to start.
       
      Which Hound turned out best?
    • By Kangaroorex
      Further efforts to produce a dozen dragons this year brought me out to the desert sands where even dragons new to worry about being spotted if they want a decent meal.  To this end desert dragons are campflaged to look like the ground from above and the sky from below.
       
      Hope you enjoy him
