Dark Sword Miniatures Critters Fox Base

All the Foxes on individual magnetic 40mm round base. I stuck a magnet under each model and in each base socket. This way, each model and base are interchangeable. I will now build a large diorama base on which there will also be magnet encrusted socket to hold and display all the models together. As suggested by Boaz on Reaper's forum I used flat magnetic tape, it was easy to cut to the shape and size I needed. I used Reaper's 40mm round base and filled them with green stuff that I carved like grass. I then added natural stones and painted birch tree seeds shell and dry roots for the trees and dead gnarled branches. These 28mm pewter models were all sculpted by Dave Summers and I painted them with acrylics.

From Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms - Anthropomorphic Animals.
Here is DSM8024, Fox Knight
. This awesome 28mm pewter miniature was sculpted by Dave Summers. It's a three part model, the helmet and shield were painted separately before assembling. It allowed me to reach the eyes and the back of the shield much easily.

77290, Mousling Beekeeper

Here's 77290 the Mousling Beekeeper. This plastic model was sculpted by Gene Van Horne for Reaper Miniatures Dark Heaven Bones line.

This was my entry for the Official Quarterly Reaper Group Bones Painting Contest #6, held on Reaper's Facebook page. There was a total of 56 entry in the contest with a lot of very creative and beautiful pieces. I won an honorable mention for those fantastic green bee eyes! I painted the bee in a redish color and give it a sad look as if its been worn by the Beekeeper to Beehave "Bee Hive".

Congrats to all the contest winners!
