The clockwork wings are WONDROUS to behold, a BRILLIANT idea, BEAUTIFULLY crafted. As one who fiddles with watch/clock parts, I am truly impressed. OUTSTANDING WORK!

Thank you all! I'm happy it worked as well as it did. Glad you like her!

High praise from a craftsman of the fantastic! I got on this forum only last year; are there some watch-part-intensive parts of the Last Hurrah project I should see for future inspiration?

..I think you have outclassed me on the wings. In fact, when I placed an order with MicroMark today. I got one of their clock/watch parts boxes in a large part from thinking about your creation.

The gears show up all over the place, but the doors are a favorite spot for them. The Steam Punk Snail W.I.P. is sporting a clockwork hatch opening mechanism.

Astounding!  I love the clock-hands-as-wing-feathers concept.  I've got to find a use for that idea sometime.  Using "watch guts" as the base is positively inspired as well.  :)

      This in The Girl from Bombshell Miniatures and was one of my entries in the Painter's category at ReaperCon. I started painting her a couple of years ago, mainly to test the peachy color of the cloth. I decided to quickly finish her for ReaperCon as I wanted to have a Bombshell entry. She was not the figure chosen for judging in the main contest but she did receive a silver medal (dog tag) in Bombshell's manufacturer awards.

      This little guy was a freebie from Bombshell Miniatures given out at Reapercon 2019. He is also available on their website.  I put him on a jungle base from Microarts.  Tried for some dark blue/grey coloration, wasn't happy with it, tried some green washes, but he kept turning blue again. Brushed a little green metallic on and he turned silver, did the green wash again with a different brand.  Decided I had messed around with it long enough. 
       
      In the background is a 3-d printed stone bridge my husband made for me. Tabletop drybrush in shades of brown over a black base coat.

      Now these are some absolutely fantastic sculpts. The bloodthirsty fanaticism really shows in every line and detail. 02681, Abram Duskwalker, is the perfect Solomon Kane / Witchfinder Pursuivant / Inquisitor-general / Puritan regicide sculpt. Toned down his sword a bit; the brass knuckles seemed a bit much (though perhaps I have run into another "Tiffany paradox" here; I'm not a weapons historian). Lots of detail, all delightfully accessible and easy to paint.


      Mira the Inquisitor, from Bombshell's Babes line, is every bit his counterpart. Decided to go with a red color scheme, which confers the added side-benefit of making her a Jacobean-era Carmen Sandiego. 


      But we all know what you came here for: Hammer horror-style ACTION SHOTS!

       This was among the stuff from ReaperCon...

      Scarecrows. The purpose is to inspire fear. For crows, the idea is that it looks like a human. 
      For people, the issue is that it doesn't quite. 

      Gauntfield is a truly horrific sculpt. For one, scale creep aside, he's very tall. Over eight foot in scale, if I were to judge. For another, his hands are way too big, coming down to knee level. And those hands are clutching a sack full of bones. That's a red flag. Oh, and he's a reanimated skeleton with a jack-o-lantern sack mask. That sadistic grin! the flapping tatters! The sculptor is very like Gauntfield himself, in that they are both...

      ...outstanding in their field.

      "When it comes to SURPRISES in the moonlit night..."


      A Bombshell promotion netted me this Autumn the Scarecrone. Less overtly skeletal, but still a construct of cloth and straw given malign, shambling life and carrying a sickle. Tatterdemalion, rag-tag, hobbledehoy. 

      The crow on her hat is a nice touch.

      Her paint job and color scheme are loosely inspired by Sally from "NIghtmare Before Christmas."

      Bonus: Bombshell's Pumpkin Pal!
