That is seriously cool. It's a great gift idea.

 

Your design looks (to me) somewhat reminiscent of some ancient Greek coin designs. Were those an influence on you, or is this a case of great minds thinking alike?

Not consciously anyway.

 

As I have been continuing this, I am finding that the real challenge will be to sculpt in a neat and clean 8 pt font on a curve. :wacko:

This might be an obvious comment, but it looks to me like you would want to move the '2018' about 5° clockwise on the curve to center it below the gap. Are you thinking of using a printout and something like a pounce wheel to get the outlines of the letters?

The Owl's tail goes there.

 

I haven't yet figured out how to transfer this to the sculpt, short of hand drawing it.  I'm pretty good at hand lettering, so...

New life goal: Become cool enough to be worthy of being able to call Talespinner "Peeps"

 

My wife spent six months in college studying in Athens. She got Athena's owl from the old Greek coin tattooed on her ankle to commemorate going. I do see a little bit of a resemblance. I agree that this may be a case of great minds thinking alike!

      So i've got that trio of spiders from nolzur's.
       

       
      They do not come with sculpted bases - unlike most of the nolzur's line.  This isn't a huge issue, except that these suckers have a bunch of tiny spindly legs.  I am worried about getting a good hold.
       
      So I have a few questions:
       
      1: how to fasten these guys to a base?  Just glue the legs and hope, or pin them through the body like a flightstand?
      2: how to sculpt/or assemble, suitable bases to compliment their spindly nature and ensure a better hold.
      3: how to attach the spider in a way that I can paint underneath it OR should I find a way to glue it down after both parts are painted?
       
      So the webbed victim shown in the photo above I have decided to leave out as a piece of scatter.  There is a stone base (not pictured) that I have already glued to a reaper base for one of the spiders.  Each of the spiders has a slightly different pose with their legs - which is made worse by them being bent out of shape.  I'm hoping to use this as an advantage though, and pose each spider differently.  One is rearing back with front legs up (this one I plan to glue to the supplied rocky base with the abdomen glued to the ground for extra support.
       
      Another spider has one side of legs kind of bent under a bit.  I'm thinking this would look good mounted sideways, crawling up the side of a fallen log (not sure if I should try to sculpt this, or find a twig to glue to the base).
       
      The last spider is pretty neutral, but I was thinking of posing it climbing down something just for variety.
       
      Any advice about sculpting the bases vs gluing organic material or mounting something with narrow points of contact would be tremendously helpful.  My indecision has lead to two weeks of no painting.

      This is my entry for the seasonal category in the Reaper Challenge League. I picked St Patricks Day as my holiday and found this adorable little fellow and his buddy in the Reaper Store. Normally I paint much bigger, meaner looking minis so this pair were a really nice change of pace. All comments and criticisms are, as always, very welcome.
       



       
      There was a slight hitch when taking the photographs for the mini. I was taking the photos in an area with great natural light, but I was interrupted by an angry Kurogane who was furious that his sleeping spot had been hijacked for something as trifling as miniature photography :D
       

       
      The mini suffered 1d2 bite damage to his hat.....
       


      .....and the perpetrator showed a distinct lack of remorse! Such is a life with feline overlords The mini was quickly fixed with some paint plastic surgery. Thanks for looking everyone!

      So at Reapercon 2018, I scored the Duskwarden poster of Thregan Helmsplitter for my work at the auction, and of course, being the Duskwarden*, I have a couple of the minis as well.
         
       
      So I was thinking of using him as my next PC, but as I have hair, I wanted my mini to also...
      While working on another project with GS, as usual, I made to much, and decided to bite the bullet and do his hair...
      What do you think?




      Comments appreciated!

      Couple reaper samurai I used for a commissioned diorama.  Rock is pine bark, tree is a wire armiture covered with plumber's epoxy putty and paper towel and super glue (for the skinnier parts), foliage is bleached, dyed, and preserved reindeer moss.

      Gotta touch up some areas later like the excess paint in the mouth. But other than that I'd say it's tabletop ready! :)
