As I'm working on a little backdrop thingy for placing minis in front of when taking pictures of the little buggers, I thought I'd post some pics. And as the backdrop thingy still is wip, I figured it'd be fitting to use minis that also still are wip. Though in most cases all that's left to be done is a few minor touch ups and basing.

Four A Miniatures' Paleskin (poor little guy probably ended up feeling slightly confused with all those changes going on in the background):

Some Alionas minis:

Wish I hadn't glued the dwarf to that base, as he was originally supposed to go on a bigger scenic base with blueish grey water and a bit of rocky outcrop in the back. Oh well, might repaint the axe someday.

.:edit:.
posted the frontal pic of the Alionas lot twice- second pic replaced with a a shot of their, erm, lovely backsides.

Hey Ink, what's your backdrop made from?

Hey Ink, what's your backdrop made from?
The 'wall' was made from airdrying clay, the slightly neater looking wooden beams are just Greenstuff. Stuff I used is by a dutch (I think) company called Havo and is named Creall do & dry. Over here in Germany the packages look like this:

do&dry by ink the troll, on Flickr
and can be bought at nanu nana.
Probably pretty much the same stuff as DAS clay. Takes quite a while to dry, shrinks a bit and even once fully cured, it remains vulnerable to water. Easy to work with and cheap (but a bit heavy)!

I covered some plastic card in all-purpose glue and while that was still wet I applied the clay, the stones were inscribed with a biro.
Once that had time to dry for a day, I flipped the whole thing over and added the rocky texture.  As the plastic card was fairly thin and the clay wasn't fully cured yet, on the second day I managed to peel both sides off by gently bending the piece.
I then brushed water and wood glue over the back and stuck both halves together.

The rocky backside of the wall was sculpted with the same clay, mostly textured using crumpled alu foil and brushes.

Stuff used on/ for the base: styrofoam off cuts, bits of fluted dowel, sand & wood glue, more clay and a warped cork trivet/ pot stand.

Beware of the shitty, badly lit pic:

Duncan McDane: Thank you!

Pics of the old Ral Partha Bear Chariot, as I don't want to further derail this topic: http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=109921.0

No idea if, when or for how long the pics show up (really have to look for something other than google pics for hosting pictures- the ones in the post above no longer did show up).

.:edit:. lets see if running the google pic links through tinyurl works
.:edit II:. No, that didn't work. flickr account created.

As the led bulb I usually have screwd into my desklamp died and the replacement bulb tints everything yellowish, mini painting has been put on hold untill I can get a proper replacement bulb.
To still spent some time on hobby stuff I decided to work on banners.

Quite a while ago I started building some terrain since simply sticking the minis in display cabinets seemed a bit boring. By now the shelf liners are at a stage where I think I can show some wips. They all are roughly 36 x 25 cm.

Very nice. Never thought of creating pieces for model display. Great!
