I also took some pictures of the mini I made, showing some of the process. Is there any interest?

This topic might be best to post your mini: viewtopic.php?f=56&t=1446
I think it will get more views, perhaps people have stopped looking on the figure exchange topic now that the thing is over.

Also, I see some paint missing on the lip of the santa orc. Is it because of my packaging? Did you get it this way? Perhaps it received a lot of small children handling? Or maybe the varnish? Although, this varnish I use on every mini, it's a little shiny but I prefer it cause it's very sturdy.

I dunno, I didn't even notice this before.

:D No, I only gave it to her for the photo.
Or maybe the varnish? Although, this varnish I use on every mini, it's a little shiny but I prefer it cause it's very sturdy.
Try the matte finish of Army painter (over the varnish). Gives great results.

Many thanks again for this great mini!

Well, here we go:

For this kind of operation, you need to take the subjet apart first.
ImageImageImageImage
Head is finished (jaws and cheekbones, ribcage is mostly hollowed out. The head is still fixed to the body for better handling, but...
Image
... off it must come!
ImageImage
Hollow ribcage finished, now let's move on to separate the ribs...
Image
worked pretty well on the right side (which is protected by the arm)
Image
On the left side, some ribs are broken. I have done this before, there will alway be some casualities...
Image
But no worry, green stuff and Miliput are the modeller's friends!
Image
Preparation of the scythe. Made it from an old blister pack.
Image
The base.
Image
All parts are finished and ready for putting them together. Some are already painted.

Thanks for the tip, but I feel this really belongs here. And after I posted anew, the figure exchange thread will be showed under "new comments", so I think people will ntice it.
