Hey, don't normally do WIPs, so forgive me if I skip steps, but I started working on my gazebo from Bones 4.

 

Built up a cork base and mounted on some basswood (slightly harder than balsa):

I'm going to be using this as blocking terrain in Kings of War, so I don't really need any interior functionality.

 

I got a Rivendell vibe from this, so I'm going to load it up with some greenery. First step is covering the rock parts with a gritty paste:

Just left the steps exposed and some edges.

That's... I hadn't even thought about doing something like that... Totally stealing this idea.

Loving the direction you're going with it. Definitely agree about the Rivendell vibe. Here's a couple of screenshots of the gazebo in Rivendell from The Fellowship of the Rings for further vibeage:

Suppose that's why it gave the vibe! Always had a decent memory for aesthetics.

Tonight's progress is small. Zenithal prime, plus green over top the grassy areas:

And then some gap filling I had neglected earlier but was now bothering me. Used Vallejo's plastic putty:

See how bad I am about WIPs?

 

I think this is the next pic I got, started highlight and shade layers.

And then layered some extra ground colors in:

Next, basic ground cover:

Then decided to try something a bit different. I want a dry white bush look. Got some lighter lichen, mixed in some white paint.

With that done, I started cutting it up and placing it.

More less what I wanted, but I wanted to bring some of the browns and greens into my white bramble bushes.

Not really sure I'm done, the bushes lost some height, I think I might add some more back around the gazebo itself.

      Hi all.  I just finished the Colossal Skeleton that I've had for a couple years now.  For the longest time I was holding off because I was afraid of doing a mini so much bigger than all the rest.  I've gotten some nice reviews on some of my recent stuff so I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at my first large figure.  I have several sets much larger than even this guy so I had to start somewhere.  The closeup pics show how much work I did on the fur for the back lioncloth as well as the wood grain lines I painted on the planks on his right thigh.  I based him on a wooden plaque my mom was getting rid of that I painted black.  I was doing more work on the base, it was supposed to have some more colours in it but I messed up on the drybrushing so I called it finished and hid the mistake with some static grass .  So far one friend has told me the blue rags pull him out of the mini because they look too new and blue while the rest of him is old and rotted.  Maybe he could do with some more staining on the blue but it doesn't bother me much.  Anyways, enough preamble, I hope you all like him enough as my first large mini!
       
      Edit: forgot to apologize for the make-believe "lightbox" photos, but that's how it goes.

      We have a player leaving our game due to a cross-country move, so I decided to paint up Juliana as his spore druid for a display piece as a parting gift.
       

       

       
      This is my first attempt at a display piece, so I’m focused on getting the miniature to a place I’m happy with before building out the base. I plan to make the base a grassy clearing filled with colorful foliage.

      My friend and I have been discussing the GW contrast paints.  He's getting decent results in less than an hour.  So I figured I'd try timing a paint job from "primer" to finish again.
       
      After basecoating, I'm at about 2.5 hours on this one.  The undercoat for the metallics and basecoating everything else took about 1.5 hours of that.
       
      77023: Barnabas, Human Warrior is an old Bones mini and some of the detail suffers accordingly.  His sword is a little noodly too.  I'm not too interested in fixing either of these in a timed paint.
       
      So, here's where we are:

      (click on the pictures for larger versions)
       
      The paints used thus far are: (all Reaper paints unless specified otherwise)
      Flesh: Barbarian Flesh Armor, shield, and sword hilt: Tarnished Steel painted over Stone Grey Sword blade: Honed Steel painted over Stone Grey Most leather parts: Ruddy Leather Belts, straps, and accents on scabbard: Tanned Leather Cloth: Monarch Purple Gold accent on shield: Cursed Gold painted over Ruddy Leather Purple symbol on shield: Sparkling Purple Buckles: Aged Pewter Base: Dungeon Grey  
      The basing is green stuff used with a Happy Seppuku base stamp.  I don't remember which one now.
       
      I'm not sold on the purple symbol on the shield.  Would it look better using a bright silver or white (e.g. Pearl White)?
       
      Lining will help the shield immensely.  I'll probably do that as the last step.  The next step is washes.

      Did a little painting today to calm my nerves before the con.  Experimented with several brands of metallic paint.  Photos are not great, but you get the idea.
