He said it was a commission for @Scatterbrain if I understood correctly. Official tournament rules allow you to use avatars as a proxy for Emissary.

Yeah, I intend to use it as the Arcane Emissary when running a Raspy crew - all similarly based, naturally. Some of those Avatar minis had incredible sculpts, I think it'd be a real pity not to use them.

Layering has yet to properly click for me, and I ended up being a bit frustrated at points with what was going on here. But it's done. Just need to try something a bit different next month.

Yeah it's tricky. I'm guessing you overstepped with a lot of your later layers. It took quite a few minis for me to get a half decent grasp on layering.

Everything looks so great, everyone! Great progress!

Life happened to me this month, and I got distracted by this great model:

So this Bokor is the only model I completed this month, for 6ss. But, here's a WIP shot for the other models I got some work done on, got pretty close on the Silurids, just some details to go.

I can suggest glazing/washing the eye with light brown ink as it seems to be standing out too much in contrast now.

Thanks for the suggestion, Viruk!  I am going to follow this advice within the next 36 hours.  I am just about to post the finished model, so it won't have this improvement, but it will be done.  Thanks again---this is a great help!

Here is my completed Hoarcat Pride for 5 SS for February.  I am going to take Viruk's advice on improving the eyes, but it won't be done before March begins.

Why two models on the same base?

AFAIK inside Hoarcats box there are 3 models and 3 bases...... But all, I pledged Hoarcats past year presenting one model per base.

@Purple Mist - it is indeed very similar to the original Ice Golem miniature. And it's a commission but I think it may get used in game as an emissary.

@Scatterbrain - basically the cobblestones were layered from dark brown to light beige and then drybrushed with  bleached bone-like color. That was followed by a wash of light brown ink, another drybrush and then glazes/washes of various colors + one more very light drybrush.

Pathfinder. Messing around with multi-source, multi-strength OSL. I'll call that 'somewhat successful'.

It's simply great. BTW, according to my experience, yallow is so hard colour to manage do I apreciate your pathfinder even more.

After all these years, I finally got Kirai chan done! But I had to also get her posse also. So here is my Feb list. Kirai (15), Lost Love (4) and Ikiryo (5).
