In honour of Michael Awdry's Dinovember, I decided to paint my first dinosaur. The figure is from Reaper Miniatures and was sculpted by Denis Mize.
I decided to put the dinosaur on a base of human skulls. For some reason I found the idea of putting a dinosaur on top of a pile of human remains quite funny. The base is from Micro Art Studios.
As I plan on doing several small diorama's for the Winter Challenge, I decided to attempt a piece as a learning experience. The figures are 20mm and are based on a 1 inch X 1 inch cube, maing this a truly small dio.
The spaceship is from Hydra Miniatures and was sculpted by Steve Meli. The remaining figures are from Counterblast and were sculpted by Patrick Keith.
I found the little dio to be quite instructive. Now I know just how many figures I can cram onto such a small base. Also I have learned how much contrast I will need on figures this small and photographed from such a long distance.
For this years Challenge I am participating in a side bet. Sander from Modus Reg Magni Momenti challenged me to a Femme Fatale Painting Duel which I gladly accepted. Sander has chosen a figure from Freebooter miniatures, whilst I have chosen a figure from Dark Sword Miniatures. According to the terms of the duel, the loser agrees to send their figure to the winner. This duel promises to add yet another element of hilarity to this years Painting Challenge.
Hope you're all priming and building bases today. I know I am.
