Well, I tried. Due to life happening, I did not manage to finish the bulk of the minis I was working on to catch up in time for the end of July. Not really important at all, but still.
I have finished some of them early August though.
First, some evil-looking dwarves:
Dwarves of Fire Canyon
Russian Alternative Miniatures
Sculpted by Maxim Rozenberg
multipart metal, 25mm bases
The big hats and ringlet beards really give away what these are “inspired” by/ subs for, and yet they have lots of nods to the older 80’s style Chaos Dwarfs. I really like these. The big hat syndrome is not overpowering, and they have enough variety even though they are modular as each mini has a different head and set of weapons. They are also competitively priced when compared to western minis these days at USD 20 for the set of 10 minis.
14005 Lord Ironraven, Crusaders Captain
Reaper Miniatures, Warlord line
Sculpted by Werner Klocke
Metal, 30mm base
He has a touch of Farquaad Symdrome: small legs, big head.
This was a freebie I got with an order off reapers website a few weeks ago.
77421 Jade Tiger, Monk
Reaper Bones 3 core set
Sculpted by James Van Schaik
Bones classic, 30mm base
This one looks like Spock, raised eyebrow and all.
77315 Fire Demon
Reaper Bones 2, “Demons Lords” add-on option
Sculpted by Victor Hugo
Bones classic, 60mm base
Narglauth would be an updated and gigantified version of this model. I painted this one for the “under-lighting” popup challenge in the RCL. It does have a bit of OSL going on, what with the flaming whip and all.
Fun fact: Narglauth and this model are about the same height even though Narglauth is significantly larger, being wider, thiccer and squatting somewhat. I tried to take a comparison photo, but they would not fit the backdrop.
This is from July though:
For the Page-O-Rama challenge (scene from a book or movie)
The Fallen Shogun XXL enemy from the
Temple of Shadows expansion from the Fallen Fortress variant game of the Shadows of Brimstone game series.
Flying Frog Productions
HIPS polystyrene plastic
I went with this mini since I have not received the Bones 5 shipment yet (which includes a similar giant samurai). It needed painting anyway.
50228 Whitney, Anime Heroine as Baby Doll.
Reaper Chronoscope line
Sculpted by Patrick Keith
It would seem at first glance that she is in a smaller scale than Conan here, but I am not so sure. Emily Browning, the actress that plays Baby Doll, is what one might call a slip of a girl at 1m55cm (slightly over 5′) according to Google (and, when you think about it, it is a pretty disturbing fact: that googling her name gets a lot of her personal details such as body measurements, height, weight etc. right in your face.)
Painted so far this year: (Miniatures: 211 / 365 goal // scenery and terrain: 6)
January: 38 // 5
March: 11 / 1
[per day #215: -4] getting there.
