The chronicle of one man’s return to collecting, converting, and painting miniatures
Nice work, Finch. I like it. A little something for the eyes to make them pop, might just push this work over the edge!
Thank you, Jay. I'm with you on the eyes. Bright yellow's a possibility.
Oh I say, he is rather splendid - if a little odd! So how do you fix the bases to the bottle tops? I guess the bottles make it easier to work on the miniature.
I myself am undecided as to whether he's oddly splendid or merely splendidly odd. An iconic Gary Gygax creation either way.I use Elmer's Tack to attach the minis to the bottle caps. http://www.elmers.com/product/detail/E625?filterPath=putty%2fhome-and-office%2f The bottles themselves make excellent handles while painting. For bulkier minis (such as this) I fill them partially with gravel so they're not top-heavy.
I've not heard of Elmer's tack before, I shall have to see if I can track some down - many thanks!
I use blutack Michael :) Sounds very much like a similar product to Elmer's Tack.
Nice work so far. Will be interested to see what you do with the feathers.
I am also interested to see what I do with the feathers. They need to be highlighted at the very least.
The owlbear is coming along nicely. Favorite monster of mine.
Thanks, Spooktalker. One of my favs too.
