That's a great job!

Plus, a great base!

Thank you. I've never know how to properly do a bass. So I put play sand in the base and took watered down wood glue and applied thick coating over the sand and placed grass and rocks where I wanted them to be permanently fixed. Then after it dried I put a homemade brown wash on it. :)

And that's how you properly do a base.:poke:

Really?! That was just a guess. I've literally had no guidance in the matter. Lol.

 

There are many videos on youtube on the subject and also threads on this forum.

 

Basing can be done in several ways.

One  of them is what you did and that works really well.

 

Here is more on the subject, experiment, ask around, look around, you're already found a good way, maybe you get inspired to try other things as well.

Great work on the armor. I really like the effect.

 

If you work a bit more on highlights and shadows of the cloak, it would pop out more, as well.

To increase the effect of the base, you can also do a light dry brush once the wash is dry (or beforehand - depends on the style you're aiming for)

      I started my Benedikt Project. It is going to be a present for my brother Benedikt.
      I assume this guy will take me a very along time. The mini sits on my desk for s long time but Progress is slow. Maybe Posting here will get me some Motivation.
       
      I will try a style with stark contrasts of light and dark like some of Frazettas works.
      The mini will get a special Base but that is a long was to go.
       
      So lets get started.

      This is the Bones version of the iconic character, painted in a rather quick and dirty fashion. There was a lot of metal and chain mail, which I did not spend time on, and a few details which I picked out.  In retrospect I could have brightened up the armor some, but since she's likely to go on the table as a generic fighter I didn't feel the need to make her special.

      Youngest Vixen's Boyfriend has a friend who owns the Boardgame Dark Souls.
      He asked if I would paint the minis for him.
      So here's the first batch.
      The main characters and the core troops.
       
      I went for Tabletop Quality.
       
      WIP here:

      So, youngest vixen's boyfriend mentioned my hobby when hanging with his friends.
      They like to play board games etc,.
      One of his friends asked if I would paint the minis for his Board Game - Dark Souls for him.
       
      So...I agreed.
      He will let me know what he'd like for the bigger monsters.
      As for the characters and minions, he let me decide ( oh boy, shall I paint a rainbow skeleton?)
       
      Anyway, here it goes.

      Here is Lashana, bad-elf female warrior-wizard. I was inspired by a movie I saw recently.  Really enjoyed working with the red and orange colors.  I like how non-traditional and energizing the color scheme is.
