Glad they had a couple of holy hand grenades of Anitoch for sale at the DIY shop last weekend ...


:lol:  Three shall be the number of the counting, and the number of the counting shall be three!

The lance on the bunny on a snail is bendy, so I store it in an empty Reach dental floss container. (:


Thanks!  Yes the lance is; and mine was missing about 3-4mm of its left eye stalk, so I had to green stuff a new one.  That floss container is a nifty idea!

Nice group - great use of splashes of color, and the basing really makes them a group and looks very realistic


Thanks!  I tried to lean a little towards an Easter Egg look for the shields  (except the snail rider, whose shield is copied from the original illustration).  And I had some fun with adding extras to the basing, so I'm glad you think it is effective. ::):

So should the Heritors of the ghost archipelago be nervous about mysterious rumors concerning a tribe of viscous hares who have developed a taste for adventurers?


I like them, very much in the style they were drawn from





I'm thinking they might make an appearance...:rolleyes:

This looks like a job for The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch. The Band of Blood Thirsty Bunnies turned out WONDERFULLY...Bugs would be proud.

The Snail Knight shows that discretion is the better part of valor admirably. VERY WELL DONE!

Thank you, malefactus!  Maybe the motto of the snail cavalry should be "Fools Rush In". :lol:  Other than changing the rabbit color, I tried sticking very close to the original monk's coloration of the snail illustration...

      Got them based

      Finally the weekend!  What a wait it felt like to get here.  

      With it being the Easter weekend, I figured it'd be fitting to do some bunnies.  I had hoped to make these for a family member and ship them out, but that didn't pan out.  However, getting them painted is still better than not.
      *  The butterscotch coloring I saw on some rabbits on Whidbey Island, I couldn't help but use as inspiration.  Matching them to how they came out, I'd say was better than I expected.
      *  Using very, very simple colors and just pushing the colors up with mixing them worked great!
      *  Making the details come out more by using very faint streaks of diluted paint worked great to give the impression of individual hairs sticking through.  I think this will be used in other models I do as well.  
      *  Eyes have a nice pop to them, but was thinking some more color would be good.
      *  I was thinking of putting some wash in there to bring forward the creases, but I didn't want to lose that fun color.  Any suggestions?
      *  The eyes have a strangeness to them by highlighting the eye lids.  Would you all suggest doing dark instead of light around the eyes?
      *  Speaking of eyes I wasn't sure if putting a spot of white in there was good or not, so I held off.  
      Pretty happy with how this little bunny came out.

      I finished a number of random miniatures up this past week or so and thought I'd throw them on here as a batch of bad guys.
      First up is this killer rabbit from Skull and Crown. This is from their recent kickstarter for bunnies from the margins of medieval manuscripts. This is the 3rd one of these I've painted and I'm still trying to find a scheme I like. But that's ok because I went in for a rather large group of these guys so I'm sure I'll come up with something good before I run out of them. 

      Next up are an Oldhammer goblin from Impact and a barrel mimic from Wizkids. Don't know why, but they seemed like they'd enjoy one another's company while I was painting them up.

      And finally, here's one of the ogres from bones 3 (77455). My group has already run into a pack of ogres from that kickstarter and narrowly survived. What they don't know is I have a second set. So next time they run into a pack of ogres it will be twice as big. I'm certain they will appreciate that.

      I also finished the green head on a certain 5 headed dragon. But that's still a long way from being complete.

      Here's a group portrait of some random minis I painted over February. The happy, green fellow in the middle is from Impact Miniatures recast of Oldhammer goblins. He is flanked by a couple of killer rabbits from a recently fulfilled kickstarter by Skull and Crown. The paint jobs don't do these a bit of justice. They are great and I'm likely to give them a repaint some time in the future. And up front are some Dark Hold kobolds from Rebel Miniatures. I absolutely love the scale of these little guys. 
      Anyhow, that's it for the January/February RPChallenge for me. I enjoyed sharing a bunch of minis which otherwise may have went into storage without ever being seen by anyone but me.

      The final skeletons for my set from Renaissance Skeletons Kickstarter.  Also, a group shot of the previous ones.
