This evening I managed one miniature done. This was deliberate rather than an inability to get two done.
Here he is…
A bit of a scary chap I think you will agree. Now I normally say something like it takes me about half an hour or so. Tonight I decided to actually time myself….so this chap took me…
Yes from start to finish he took me 29 minutes to do. I wasn’t rushing, just painting in my normal way.
On this one I went in the followingorder… boots, green smock, trousers, brown jacket. This was to allow some drying time for each of the different parts. The mask was a mix of zombie green and orange with various splodges of orange over the top while still wet. I also added leather brown into the eye sockets then used my thumb to remove paint from the eyes. These were then dotted with red.
Once again superglue on the base and showed in the base ready. A quick zip around the edges with my super wide black sharpie and voilà one scary scarecrow. Start to finish thirty minutes.
In case anyone is wondering..this is Worzel Gummidge…
Worzel was played by John Pertwee, who also played Doctor Who… I know which I prefer and it isn’t a wierd scarecrow from Ten Acre field!
Oh while I remember, the four beasties are by Tytantroll miniatures.
One day I will work out how to tag people on my blog as they really are lovely miniatures…I really fancy having a go at some of the miniature busts..there are some really great ones, the only reason I haven’t got one yet is because I can’t decide on one.
Finally, I said I had only painted one mini this evening, part way through writing this I decided to make a start on the vampire.
