Darksword Minis Owlbear and Cubs

Recommended Posts

Just finished this for my sister! Hope it arrives close ish to Christmas but at least it's finally done - only been planning it since last year or so.

 

These are the Darksword minis Owlbear and cubs, as my sissy has two kids, and we joke a lot about going all momma bear, I thought this would be perfect for her :D She's also a hunter so a woodland scene is right up her alley.

 

Not my best job tbh, I'm pleased it came out ok but was hoping to get more detail etc in. I'd wanted to make the trees but no time =/ Better to get it done than sit on it another year.

It's in a softball display case, on a wood base I picked up at Michaels. So no need to dust!

The Family Group is BEAUTIFULLY painted & IMAGINATIVELY based. The cubs/chicks are adorable...yours are more appealing than the Dark Sword listings. VERY NICELY DONE!

I may not be able to resist these much longer.

      Here is the owlbear from Bones IV - it will do. I was going for the Eurasian Pygmy Owl, being as it's a small owlbear....

      Is this encounter a matter of survival or planned by the sorceress.  Her story either way seems... fishy. 
       
      First attempt at a large resin Diorama. 
      It needs the resin sides sanded/buffed with a mechanical sander.  By hand the resin just turns cloudy, so ill will leave it this way until I have access to the proper tool.
      a few additional refinements should be done before I enter it into competition 
      - more work on wave/ripple patterns.
      - change color / wetness of raft. 
      -paint base black. 
       
      I am happy with it as a display piece,  I just need to keep the dust off, a the wave surface will be a headache to clean.

      Hello Reaper friends!  You might remember I did a whole tribe of Hill Giants on a display board, with hex bases?
       
      This is my follow up to that, this time: Stone Giants.
       
      Errrm, it all got a bit out of hand, and I'd LOVE some input from you all, please
       
      This is where I'm at after a week and I'm a bit stuck tbh.




       
      I think I need to decide more about what the "finish" will look like before I go a lot further. Once I cover that foam with more than paint it's going to be harder to make changes. I'm thinking of sort of "cladding" it in pieces of slate, with sculpted  bits / groundwork in the gaps?
       
      I'd also love to hear suggestions for other miniatures and features to add to the scene to break up those big open rocky spaces. Current extra bits and bobs are just there for a sense of scale and how extra minis might "interrupt" or "enhance" the scene.
       
      Some next steps though:
      - cork around the hexes on the platforms for the bases to fit into
      - some sort of "door frame"
      - "box in" the sides (which are cut out of a continuing mountainside, in my head at least)
       
      Please, rain your ideas and encouragements upon me!

      So! I'm back. I haven't finished any of my other WIPs lately but I figure one more won't hurt. 
       
      I'm planning on doing a film noir style desert expedition whereupon our investigators find something not of this world. 
       
      I'm really excited for this one(not that I'm not excited for all my projects) but I have some hurdles to cross. 
       
      I want a wall between the white and grey bones, preferably crumbly looking. Not sure where to start with that.  Figure out the best way to magnetize things. And the really big one: figure out how to actually paint in the style I'm trying to do.   
      This will involve a lot of work and time. As well as some (maybe a lot of) practice minis. 
       
      I'm currently in the mock up stage. I've got the minis I want and I'm trying to stage them how I think will look good as well as imagine the wall where I want it.
      First stages of mock up.

      Dan's Build Journal #4
      The Ranger's Camp
       
       
      Finished Project Pics:
       
         My Other Build Journals:
       
      Well its been almost two weeks since I finished my last project, and that itch start a new build has flared up again.   This time I am going to attempt some type of Ranger/Woodsman's Camp, which compared to my last couple of projects should be quite a straight forward and relatively simple build.
       
      Laying the Foundation.
      To build the foundation of this project, I cut out a piece of XPS foam to serve as the base and then used blocks of polystyrene which I'd cut with a hot wire tool to form the very basic shape and contours of the landscape.  I want give to the illusion that the camp is quite secluded and well hidden and so it is going to be set up in a small clearing at the base of a wooded hill.  I'm going to build the hill so that it sweeps around the camp, shielding it from three sides.
       
      During my recent Ruined Keep build, I'd started working on an LED campfire, but got cold feet and ended up abandoning the idea scared that I'd mess up and spoil the project.  This time I am going to go for it.  I removed the outer casing from a cheap flickering LED tealight, cut a small hole in the XPS foam base, and then hot glued the tealight into the hole so that only the LED was protruding above the surface.   I'll come back to this at a later stage.
       
       
       
      The next stage was to get nice and messy with some Sculptamold, which I used to reshape the contours of the hill into something a little more organic and natural looking.  I also added several plaster of paris rocks that I had left over from a previous project to add a bit of visual interest.  The rocks were originally created using Woodland Scenic's Rock Moulds.
       

       
      The Sculptamold is applied quite thickly in places, and so it may need an extra day to fully dry.  In the mean time I have a bunch of accessories to paint up and prepare, including a woodsman's lean-to, a roasting spit and a sitting log which I will likely start work on over the weekend.
