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)

      My first attempt for this miniature.  Thoughts?

      Bones 4 core set #20.  Could not find a release # for him yet.  I took this guy and a few of his pals to Reapercon to work on in my spare time (ha!) and got him base coated using some of the new Pathfnder paint set.  I couldn't help but notice the chickens and the look of terror on his face, thus the name.   Finished him with a basic drybrush and wash for table top play.

      I've had Ragnaros (or Raggers, as I like to think of him) for almost a year. I was stuck on what colours to use for ages. Red and brass, my first thought, are a bit too Khorne-y for my liking, and I didn't want to do him in the classic plate mail colours. So I settled for a pretty mute palette: Vallejo Neutral Grey, a blue/grey sample from Reaper, and Army Painter Dark Tone, Plate Mail Metal and Rough Iron. I did the eyes with Vallejo Red to add some colour.
       
      I thought about doing something flashy with his sword and shield, but then figured that Raggers isn't the type to bugger about with flaming swords and shields made of human skin. I also wonder how easy it would be to outrun him seeing as he's wearing about three tons of armour. The figure itself is so heavy you could put it in a sock and use it to mug people.
       
      Raggers isn't based yet; after slathering on what felt like the fourth gallon of Dark Tone to finish him off I'm taking a break.
       
      As always, comments, criticisms and cash are welcome.

      Gave this model a different arm and hand pose, sculpted a wooden stick and used a resin bit from avatars of war necromancer for the spear head. This was a speedpaint that took probably around an hour. Thanks for looking!
