Redghar Part 6 and Barbarela Part 7
Well, what started out as two independent pieces has now become a multi-figure scene... so the titling gets a bit confusing!  Over the past week I've done some more work on my pirate crew.  I initially focused on Redghar, trying to finish off the leather se...

Redghar Returns! Pirate Orc - Part 5
It's been almost a year since I've done any painting on Redghar.  As often happens, I get to a point on a figure where I'm not quite sure how to move forward.  So I set it aside, work on other projects, and come back to it when I've had a chance to come up ...

Orc Brave Part 3
I've begun constructing the base.  Before I ever started this figure, I began brainstorming what sort of scene he'd be in.  He's got a somewhat different pose for an orc.  In his right had is an ax, but it's down to his side and relaxed, not ready to strike...

Empress' Dragoons Officer Part 7
And the piece is finally finished! Since my last post, I worked to finish off the column.  I focused on the front side first before turning to the back.  The rear was done just like the front, working on 4 or 5 stones at a time.  It was a relief to finally ...

This past weekend was the SCAHMS (Southern California Area Historical Miniature Society) show.  It's an annual event in Los Angeles put on by our local figure modeling group.  I hope to write up a report on the show, but in the meantime here are a number of...

Empress' Dragoons Officer Part 6
The base is coming along brick by brick.  Makes me wish I'd picked a simpler setting for him but too late now!

Empress' Dragoons Officer Part 5
I finally had the time to sit back down and finish off the Dragoon's left boot.  Here's a quick close up of the finished boots next to the sketched in ones.  In case you missed my last post, the tutorial on how I did them has been posted here . That means t...
