"Done and on to the next one" Diorama from Reapercon 2019

Recommended Posts

Very nice composition! I like that you sculpted her with a dress - it works very well with this figure. Congrats on the silver.

That dress turned out amazing.  Great sculpting work - until you pointed it out, I had no idea that the figure was so extensively converted, which is surely the sign of impressive worksmanship. The tartan pattern looks well done, but there's a lot of it.  Kinda to the point that it's almost distracting from the rest of the piece.  Also, I think that the creature's skin could be slightly less green.  I don't know that I would do anything too too drastic, because you've done a good job with the colors to focus the viewer's eye on the archer (which should be the focus), but right now, he kind of blends into the rest of the base and gets lost.  Maybe a hint of purple in the shadows to set him apart?  Anything else I might have had to say looks like it was covered pretty well by the judges' comments.

 

Overall, a fantastic job, and a well-earned Silver!  I can't imagine it would take much to bump something like this up to Gold next year.

I remember seeing this one in passing, but I didn't look closely at it. (So thank you for sharing so I can better appreciate it!) That said, I agree with @leolson79. When I walked by slowly, taking in the entries on the table, I did not realize that there was a creature on the base. Even seeing the photo of it on the screen during awards, I still did not realize there was a creature on the base. It's obvious looking at it now, but I completely missed it at a glance. I agree it shouldn't be the focus of the miniature, though, and judges clearly look at everything much more closely than just at a glance. So, perhaps the balance is right and this is just a pitfall of not paying close attention.

      Finally finished an NPC mage that plays a recurring role in my campaign. Now that she’s done the party will probably never return to her castle .. fun to paint

      Further efforts to produce a dozen dragons this year brought me out to the desert sands where even dragons new to worry about being spotted if they want a decent meal.  To this end desert dragons are campflaged to look like the ground from above and the sky from below.
       
      Hope you enjoy him

      Here is my take on the Dance of Death sculpt from the Bones 4 Kickstarter.
       

       

       
      I really enjoyed this one,  finishing it up this last winter. I saw someone mention somewhere online that they were bummed that the heads didn't exactly line up, but I found it reminiscent of dogs when they are snarling while looking sidelong at each other.
       
      Apologies for the scratches and discolorations on the background. I've been meaning to pick up some black cloth to improve that.
       
      Thanks for taking a look!

      I have done about 15 minis over the past year (starting with the Learn to Paint kit), after taking a 30+ year break from painting lead with Testors enamel. Each one I try to learn or improve one technique. This one I focused on pose & basing (took a little surgery to get rid of the pudding base and shape all the claws). The 'rock' is a chunk of bark. Any comments, critiques, questions or suggestions are welcome. Between this forum and YouTube, I am amazed on the knowledge and information available, in an overall great community. Getting ready for Bones V delivery!

      Hi Reapertronics!
       
      So these are two I've been working on for the last week or so, two really small Tom Meier sculpts from Dark Sword Miniatures, ones from another post on the forum where I was complaining about eyes. Two really fun figures I think, excellently sculpted by Meier. Here's the first one:
       

       
      and a few shots of her face up close.  The eyes aren't perfect, but they turned out better than the first try before my repaint:
       

       
      and then here's the male halfling thief. He's nice and basic, with a classic old school feel. He almost gives a Bilbo Baggins type of feel to this is you ask me:
       

       
      and then here they are together:
       

       
      and to give you an idea of their size, I put them next to a few recent reaper models, a few of my favorites, the female hobgoblin archer (metal version with nose) and the other one is one of the dark gnome gals:
       

       
      So anyhoos, lots of photos, hope you enjoy!
