You there, fill it up with petroleum distillate, and re-vulcanize my tires, post-haste!

Great conversion and I really like the freckles; that's not something you see a whole lot on painted miniatures.:winkthumbs:

 

Thanks, a tad fiddly, but they give the face some interest.

Seamless conversion! Freckles are great as are the eyes - definitely full of character - well done!

 

Thank you, yes I like how the face came out. Statuesque heads are really nice.

I pulled out my painted copy of the original sculpt and decided I like yours better.  Very nicely done!  ^_^

 

I wasn't too happy with her boob window and leaf loin cloth. So I started cutting and ended up redoing the entire front.

Wow, I love the eyes.

 

Thanks, they even worked out with the first attempt.

Love the conversion! The mushrooms on the log are a genius touch. A drybrushing of rusty orange or scab red would really make them pop. Great work sculpting her outfit change, too--I know that's tricky even though you make it look easy.

I thought of an orange glaze, just to make them stand out a tad more. I didn't want them to be too much in your face, but they do fuse a bit with the log. 

 

Thank you, the sculpting was fiddly and I had to redo some sections . I learned quite a bit. Most important thing: ratio 2:1 yellow to blue makes it much easier to sculpt fine detail.

the face is amazing

 

Enjoyed the WIP thread too,  that's a pretty serious conversion

 

Sorry for the late reply and thank you for commenting. Usually my perception of minis changes after they are in the display case for a time. This one I still like, so I think the face was a success. The conversion was indeed more of a resculpt, but perfect to experiment.

That's a total makeover, almost a completely new model. You did an excellent work on both the conversion and the paint. I like the posture of her head, it makes it much easier to see her face this way. The original version of the model is facing down, probably because she is tracking a foe or animal, so her face is a little hard to paint. Which head did you use? I also like the mushrooms you added on the stump.

      I'm very happy with how the skin tone turned out on this mini.

      Overview
       
      I'm working on a conversion for my partner's character in our Swords and Wizardry campaign. She's a half-elf rogue with red hair that dual-wields swords, but unfortunately Reaper doesn't sell an exact figure of that type. There are a couple of other figures that might have worked but we both really liked Lanelle's base, so I took on the task of converting her to wield two swords and carry a shield on her back.
       
      The sword conversion wasn't too difficult; I bought three copies of Lanelle so I could take the sword from one and have a third as a back-up in case I messed something up. I carefully snipped off the sword, and used a pin vise to attach it. I used the baking soda and superglue combo to patch up a few small gaps. The shield was harvested from a 77024 goblin mini, and has a little pin in it which will attach to her back. I'm keeping them separate for now to ease painting.
       

      The original figure; this is the backup.
       

      The successful conversion; the red hair is stained from a previous attempted paint job that was removed with Simple Green.
       

      You can see the gaps a little on this side, but they've very minor and I believe paint will help disguise it later.
       

      There are no visible gaps on the outside.
       

      The shield will be attached right in the center of of her back; if positioned correctly I think it'll
      just reach the sheath on her belt and give the illusion that the dagger is just hidden behind the shield.
       

      The donor shield and unhappy goblin; I think this mini will make a nice battle-scarred goblin with a tragic past.

      The term was introduced into evolutionary biology by L. A. Borradaile, who described it as "one of the many attempts of Nature to evolve a crab".  1916. 
       It is believed to have independently occurred 5 times. 
       
      or a wizard did it. 
       
      this was a 45min conversion at reapercon hobby hijinx tables. Made from an angel, drider and flail snail, painted as hermit crab. 
       
      if I did another, it would be easier to paint the drider as a sea-elf instead of adding a new mini.   Not sure why I would want a second, but it was fun to make!

      Next in line: 77049, Bones Arthrand Nightblade, Elf Ranger.
       

       

      I tried priming with a 1:1 mix of Blue Liner:White Brush On Primer.  There were a few mold lines and casting valleys that showed up.  I put a layer of Brush On Sealer on them.  We’ll see how that worked.

      Hello everyone, I'm mostly done with the second Ogre, I just need to do some touch ups. It's clubbing time, the Ogre way! This one is the 77454, Ogre Clubber sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77455, Ogre Smasher. I also added a skull at his waist belt on the left side. As always I used Reaper MSP paint.
