Hot & Dangerous Lagertha and Rosie

Recommended Posts

They look wonderful!

 

And eventhough I can appreciate the cleavage on Rosie, I still think it's kinda silly to go to war like that.

Oh well, maybe she will distract the enemy long enough to kill them.

The green cloak is great! Your freehand and texturing on it are splendid! 

 

I think you may be running into issues that I was having previously with thinning. People whine "thin your paints more" and my conclusion is that this advice is garbage on its own. I was getting really chalky results doing that - with water. Get some glaze medium and/or thinning medium to use. Water can still be involved, but the medium is making all the difference for me.

These are the 28mm versions?  I picked theses up in 54mm.  Someday I'll get around to painting them.  In the meanwhile I'll admire yours!  Really nice work on these.  That cloak is superb and I like the shading on Rosie's tunic.

...cleavage is a more effective form of armor than plate mail...at least, with most opponents.

Yes, they are the 28 mm versions.

The texture you painted on the the Shieldmaiden's cape is great. I also like the helmet real metal reflection.

I often start out thinking I will do nmm, but usually chicken out and use shaded metallics instead like I did on these ladies.

Beautiful. The painting on Lagertha's cloak is so delicate.  Also Rosie's helmet and those velvety matte stockings. All the metals look great!

      The chibi smallworld minis are all based on existing normal minis in the Reaper lines. I recognized five of them from the minis I have from earlier Bones kickstarters, but not Arnise the female barbarian elf that I painted the other day.
      The reason being that the original was included in the Bones 4 core set. An older metal mini being redone into Bones material it seems.

      So I painted her in a similar scheme.
       

      The metal version is called Arnise, Elven Sergeant from the Warlord line, and represents the Sergeant of Almirithil's frenzied half-elven berserkers in the Warlord lore.
       

      Why hello there, you remind me of someone I once knew...

      Plonking away a the Bones 4 core set, this is number 5:
       
       
      I am not a number! I am a free man!
       
       
      The metal version of this is called Ankoa, Barbarian Hero.
       
      He has a really small head compared to most of the other minis. I expect he is not too bright. Probably not destined to bear the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow.
       

      There's a new playah in town! Come get some!

      AUGH! The Great Pumpkin Came!
       
      This was my entry in a painting league at another  miniatures forum.
       
      In reference to the longstanding Peanuts theme of Linus sitting alone in the Pumpkin Patch waiting for the Great Pumpkin to come bringing gifts, Santa Claus-style.

      It's a pity for him that Halloween is all about the scary...and the Great Pumpkin probably is not a very nice being.
       
      The miniatures are all by Reaper, the fences are from Mantic's Kings of War Vanguard terrain. I found the simplicity of the fences really helped to sell the story here. As one of the commenters in the LPL-post stated: "Less is more".
       
      Lots more pics, but yah gotsa clicks!

      Sophie at the Well of Lost Memories was my RC 2019 entry.  I posed her on a sculpted base, reading through a stack of old diaries and journals written by those who have gone before us.  She earned a bronze award.

      The second of the superdeformed Chibi hero minis from the Bones 4 core set that I have painted, here comes Arnise the Elf Barbarian.
      Kissed by fire.
       

      I have no idea if she actually is meant to be a barbarian or not.
       

      Getting that much skin smooth is not an easy task, especially not by drybrushing. ...oh damn I forgot the freckles!
       

      Same height, different scale.
