Wee man

6 mm

This guy and a few other extras came with my "Fellowship" set. I painted him up just for fun this evening, while doing laundry.

Mini Exchange #11

I just received this "Archangel Sergeant" from Rev in the UK. I might replace her wings with rotors or something and go for a "Steampunk" look.

A whole new kind of "small"

I just picked these up from Copplestone Castings. The set is called "Heroes and Halflings", but they are pretty obviously the Fellowship of the Ring. The humans are a whopping 10 mm tall, the hobbits are more like 6 mm!

My Nosferatu vampire (see below) hasn't gone anywhere yet, but I'm thinking he should be done in greyscale/B&W to fit his cinematic appearance.

Count Orlok
28 mm

Another great, cheap Mega Miniature - the Count from F.W. Murnau's 1922 film "Nosferatu, a Symphony of Horror" (he's also appeared in "Spongebob Squarepants").

Feeling of Accomplishment

"Buger thyss, I'm goinge home!"
28 mm

Well he's done, I mounted him on this little wooden base to make him a little more gift-worthy. The dead grass is bristles from a cheap paintbrush. My dad will have to wait a little longer for his gift though, I can't bring myself to put this guy in the mail...

Just in time too, there's another Mini Exchange underway. "Thoth the Keeper of Scrolls" is on his way to dougaderly in New Hampshire.

Lazy bum

(That'd be me... almost no painting for weeks. Didn't help I was sick TWICE.)

OK so I really have to finish this gift for my dad. Here's what's done so far:

I'm thinking a freehand-painted patterned border on the tunic, and maybe some tufts of dead winter grass poking out of the snow would make him more visually interesting. And he needs rosy cheeks since it's winter.
