A friend and I alternate DMing every other weekend. (Two different games.) He has a recurring NPC named Wan Pau who has been described as a ratkin who is a wise, old, mysterious man (ratman) who is the head of a powerful Cathayan family. (Cathay is basically China.)
I painted up this little mouseling as Wan Pau. He is too cute to be a ratkin but, oh well!
I wanted him to look like he is getting a little white around the muzzle and some salt and pepper streaks in his hair. His tail wasn't well formed and actually I didn't know it was there until I painted base and you could barely see an outline where it should be. I told my friend I could fix it but he liked it without. He said Wan Pau was too dignified to have his tail waving out in the open for everyone to see! Ha!
I tried a little freehand on the back of his robe. It didn't turn exactly as I had hoped but I also didn't think it was too bad! I am the most proud of his cute little face!
This is the first time I've posted my work and I'm rather proud of how they turned out.
I painted this group of minis as a gift for a friend as he is a long-time fan of MouseGuard. Much like this is my first time posting my work, these were the first minis I painted in over a year and I only had about 40 completed minis under my belt before this.
77286: Mousling King and Princess
Both minis were inspired by the animated Robin Hood movie Disney put out long ago. The rust on my skills is very evident on the princess; she was the second mini I painted out of the group. If I had to do it over, I'd re-think the fur colors. The king was painted later in the sequence and is much better.
77287: Mousling Thief and Assassin
The assassin was an attempt at a medieval mousling Boba Fett. I'm pretty happy with the shading on the cloak and scarf but the NMM attempt on the sword is pretty bad. LTPK #3 is next on my to-do. I didn't have any particular inspiration for the thief so I decided to roll my own scheme and see where it went. The yellow sack looked horrible at first but I kept working up the layers and I'm pretty happy with the end result.
77288: Mousling Sorcerer and Samurai
The samurai was another custom scheme. Shading white and black is hard. That's definitely something to work on in the future. The sorcerer's scheme comes from Mickey Mouse in Fantasia. Believe it or not, I attempted to shade the red... At least the beard turned out awesome :)
77289: Mousing Ranger and Yeoman
This is probably my favorite duo out of the bunch. Disclaimer: I'm not entirely sure which is the ranger and which is the yeoman. To me, the ranger is the one with the hat. Like the king and princess, the ranger comes from the animated Robin Hood. He was the first mini I finished in this group. He has the same fur problem as the princess. Fortunately the green and red-orange make up for the fur. The yeoman, a.k.a. Mouse Solo, has much better fur. I could have added some other colors on the weapons, particularly the arrow, but I liked the idea of using one color that roughly matched Han's blaster.
77290: Mousling Druid and Beekeeper
Rounding out the group is this pair. The beekeeper was another custom scheme. I wanted to see how the blue from the king and the green of the assassin looked on the same mini. Pretty good IMO. The druid was inspired by Wicket from Star Wars. I'm really happy with how the cloak and clasp turned out. This would be my favorite out of the entire bunch if I had just paid more attention to the final dry-brush on the face. That missing bit by the hood really irks me.
Two Reapers in succession !! Who would have thought !
This was a painting, and a basing challenge for me. I tend to attempt both in the same mini.
A wonderful mini (extremely amusing) to paint, and a challenge to base.
I had a blasts doing him. I so wanted to share what I was thinking while doing this, if nothing elsel
just the deep laughing while doing it.
You comments and criticism are always welcome and desired.
Here's Yoshi, the mousling Samurai.
