PostSubject: New custom figures (sort of)!   Sun Mar 30, 2014 12:40 am

It's been a while since I've posted, later check the REAL ANIMAL TOPICS to see just one of the things that has been keeping me away from miniatures, I'll post a thread there later tonight, but back to this topic.  

I have received several figures including the female forest buffalo to the Harriet/Anna set.  I finally had some time to take some photos, here is the pair.


I also put the first coat of paint on the pair of Andrew's 3-D elephants, I did add the highlights just for the photos but right now it is just the basic gray primer.  Here are some photos, first the new pair, the calf he change to a bull, and the cow is a bit larger and bulkier then the original.


Here are the two cows, it gives a good idea how he can change every aspect of the figure fairly easily.


And the two calves, again the little bull came from modifying the original calf figure.

Wonderful photos, and I like the elephants, and the buffalo... and well everything  Very Happy. I was actually considering making similar box-dioramas in the future. I don't think I've seen this before, but do you buy or make your palmetto leaves?

I make all of my trees and bushes from scratch, the palmetto fronds are laser cut paper, if you need some I do sell them from time to time, just PM me if you're interested.

Thanks for posting the images Phil, the elephants look great with the first layer of grey. Can't wait to see them in your big Indian diorama.

The forest buffalo look really nice in their habitat too!

Great figures! The forest buffalo couple looks awesome, and Andrew's elephants are always spectacular. By the way, you do a great job with recreating habitats with your plants. I can't wait to see your finished large-scale Indian diorama myself.
