So obviously I won't just be using one mini, but this is what I have so far and as I want to start I thought I'd post her up. I'll add more when they arrive and I work out exactly what I'm doing...

Hmmm

Great to see you entering the competition mate, but are you entering a ziplock bag! :)

I *think* that's a hasslefree poledancer in the bag? Am I right?

Good luck!

Thats a bit obtuse Brandlin ;) it's clearly the very-nearly-nude barbarian girl leaning on her polearm  :angel:

Thats a lovely model to paint btw

Apologies Avicenna - i couldn't make it out from my ipad screen... and i bow to your greater knowledge of the non-grymn sections of the hasslefree catalogue.

now, stop correcting me and post your starting pics.

Yeah, sorry the pic came out so dark... It's Gayle from Hasslefree. If you squint you can *just* about see that. I've managed to get as far as taking her out of the bag now. :)

oh!!! Yours is out of the bag. Another one that is further ahead than me. Looking forward to seeing how this goes.

Ok, and several days late here's the next mini. Here's a Heresy Ogre. Let's see how far I get with this...

Good stuff.

I have added the above pic to your starting pic post so you don't have to now :)
: Re: Wings' UDoD WIP thread
: Wings October 05, 2012, 11:57:42 PM
Thank you! Much appreciated. I completely forgot about that... I'll remember with any future additions! :)

He is now out of his bag and assembled. One of these days I may even get round to painting these in time.

You still have 10 weeks ;)

Ten weeks. Jeepers. I had better get started on mine. That mini you've added just screams to be in a diorama.

He'll! Is that all?
Depressed at the amount of work I have to do already.

Then stop moaning and start painting! :whip:

And use your kid as a painting minion. You can task him with doing simple (but boring and time consuming) things such as cleaning brushes, changing the glass of water, touching up the priming with a brush, and perhaps even basecoating a mini or two, or the base.
Passing child labour as quality time: a true classic.

Here's what I managed to get done on the weekend. He's so much fun to paint! Any c&c would be greatly appreciated. The colour of the fur is currently a hideous mistake and will be changed.

Heyyyy... You're not supposed to put paint on them! I thought I was the only one!

Nice smooth coverage there. Personally I quite like the fur colour, but it might be camera-colour  rather than real-colour?
: Re: Wings' UDoD WIP thread
: Wings October 17, 2012, 11:45:03 PM
I thought you were looking a little lonely there and might like some company. ;) You've still painted far more than me, even with all the traumatic stripping of paint.

The fur is a lot more vivid in real life. I might paint up the jacket and then see, but orange is not a good colour.

It makes me think of orange shag carpet.  Kind of awesome, actually.
: Re: Wings' UDoD WIP thread
: Wings October 18, 2012, 10:46:16 PM
Hmm... I'll leave the fur be for the moment then and see what it looks like when I've done everything else. Thanks for the feedback!

Hmmmm, I feel a bar room brawl coming up. These male-types get so hot under the collar when there's a pretty lady to impress ;)  Nice start with the ogre; good luck with the scene!

Anymore ogre goodness yet?

I did some more painting last weekend but haven't managed to get camera, me, and mini in the same house at the same time. I will try this weekend! I'm hoping to start Gayle too.

: Wings November 05, 2012, 09:53:35 PM
So I *completely* forgot about taking more photos of the Ogre now that he's got a painted jacket and everything, but I have a photo of Gayle. I took some slightly better ones but then did more painting so sadly this is the most up to date one. C&C greatly appreciated! I plan to do a fair amount more work on her to smooth out everything and up the contrast.

That's awesome. I take it that's a mop she's holding. It looks good but if it's on the floor it should have it's mop-bits splayed out on the ground.
The hair colour is looking good.
: Re: Wings' UDoD WIP thread
: Wings November 06, 2012, 11:34:02 AM
I know... I'll do more work on it I think when I've created the base. I've been having great difficulties holding her still.

Thanks for the praise though. :)
: Re: Wings' UDoD WIP thread
: Wings November 12, 2012, 10:08:42 PM
I remembered to take more photos of the Ogre! I haven't done any more work on him for a few weeks unfortunately. The only things unpainted on him are any metal bits, but I might retouch other bits later and maybe repaint the fur. Any suggestions on what needs improving?

Looks good to me  :thumbup:
I would give the jacket a coat of slightly darker blue but that is my own preference -don't go fiddling and mess it up if you are happy, as it looks ok.

Pictures are up in the Finished Pics thread. Getting a job in the week I'd set aside for minis stuff is not great for stress levels, so it's all a bit rushed.

I really like that wings. The spider webs are great and all the casks on the ll look awesome. :thumbup:

The stonework and webbing are top notch, and the painting is excellent. :applause: :applause:

Thanks all! I was really pleased with the walls and for finding something to use as spider webs (part of my brother's duvet I think...). I just wish I hadn't left finishing it so late.
