    Malifaux Viktoria of Blood For Hobby Hangout Resolution contest and Jan/Feb Resolutionary Painting. These are the Done, but not Finished images. Hence WiP and not Show Off. Ill post some other WiP images as i clean up my phone. She was a serious pain to assemble. And painting assembled was also painful. Not a good combo for sanity, but an interesting figure.

    I finally finished by Giant Rats Dozen from Bones I. I tried to give them fur texture. The texture from the cast was too light for drybrushing, so it's essentially free hand. The gray rats have some red and green glazed into the shadows to give them a little diseased feel. I spent WAY too much time painting these... Mold lines on the actual rat (as opposed to the base) were too tricky to try to get rid of, especially in light of the subject matter. They’re rats. A lot of them. C&C Welcome.

    I wasn't sure about this one but it looks like it would work nicely as a gigantic plant monster. I love plant creatures and this one looks like the biggest around. Very tempting.

    I was catching up here and realized I never posted proof that my CMON order had arrived. It was heavy on Dark Sword, but I picked up a few things from other companies as well.

    Presenting Gretel (and her monkey Hansel) a revenge-seeking witch-hunter and part of the Servants of the Engine faction from the game Twisted. She can also be found in my Steampunk People WIP thread. Super happy with how this one turned out, particularly little Hansel! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    I'm really happy with this one. 3D render by John Popson, cast by Effincool Miniatures. This will be available next weekend at GaryCon in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. I get to personally hand it to Luke Gygax, and it will go into the charity auction, which all the proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Project. I got it as close to the poster and shirt art as I could. Thanks for looking! If you're going to Gary Con this year, introduce yourself if you find me.

    I painted these Squogs, Turtles and Kar Drakir to fit in with my lizardmen/seraphon for Age of Sigmar. The squogs and turtles were painted early last year, a quick paint job to test out some colours for my lizardmen. Kar Drakir was painted to serve as a lizardmen hero. The squogs were slightly converted - Mudcroak received a Lizardmen style staff top and one of the squogs got a skink sword. The Squogs and Turtles were okay models - the weapons on the squogs were fairly thin and thus a bit floppy. Kar Drakir was amazing. I think models that's 35mm+ is where the bones material really starts to shine.

    With his head attached, I had to do something to fill the gap. So I crammed some greenstuff in along the mouth and then tried to blend some sculpted hair into the hair already present. This gave him some three stooges hair, but it's close enough to do the job: After touching up his basecoat of coat d'arms Dark Elf Green I could finally start layering up using thinned Coat D'Arms Bogey Green: I added some Coat D'arms Dusky Yellow to the Bogey Green for the next layer. The kind of yellow is not so important, I chose Dusky Yellow because when I ordered supplie in Novermber from Black Hat I didn't realize every time I hit the back button it added a unit to my cart - so I have enough Dusky Yellow to last me about 80 years. I figure I should use it as opportunity allows. At this point I painted the spikes along his back with Coat D'Arms Horse Tone Bay and his hair with old Reaper Pro Paint Aged Red Brick. I chose to make the spikes a more yellow colour than the rest of his horns to help emphasize his sort of "fairy tale" look. Scorpius is unusual for a dragon, looking more like he came out of a storybook than he is scary. This is all the more horrifying when he starts eating adventurers. Then I added yet more yellow into the Bogey Green for yet another layer: I then finished up his hair by adding a layer of Old Pro Paint Chestnut and Old Pro Paint Rust. His spikes got a 50/50 mix of Horse Tone Bay plus Horse Tone Dun and then a top layer of Horse Tone Dun. I didn't want to make this too extreme or it would just look like his horns and claws. With those parts out of the way I could finally attach his wings: The wings fit very well and left little gap. What gap there is I don't really have tool to tackle well so I decided to leave it. If I get some smoothers and shapers in the future I can revisit this and clean it up, but right now it doesn't look too bad. Once the wings were dry and secure I painted his head horns and any remaining claws. I started with a basecoat of Coat d'Arms Barbarian Leather, then a midtone that was 50/50 Barbarian Leather and Coat D'Arms Bone, and then a top layer of straight Coat d'Arms Bone: For his eyes I kept it dead simple, giving a basecoat of old pro paint Blood Red and then a quick dab of old pro paint Firehawk: The last thing I did was to paint his tail stinger with Coat D'Arms Deadly Nightshade and then did the tip with some Coat D'Arms Poison Purple. And with that, old Scorpius was finished: Despite the awkward timing of this fairly complicated piece, he was a lot of fun. We don't get to see much of him around here, him being rather lost in the back catalog and rarely, if ever, even appearing in Casketworks. He's a real hidden treasure!

    Presenting a Disciple of the Flower Witch (there's five of them but I'm not sure which number this one is), a mysterious denizen of the Kingdom Death world. She's also in my Kingdom Death WIP thread. Not too happy with this one, it turned out to be a much trickier mini to paint than I thought and as a result she's rather rough in places. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    I've been eagerly awaiting the release of the Elephantman from the Bones 3 Kickstarter "Savage Avatars" set so I can order a couple to play the role of Erithereans from the Bestiary. But that is a couple months away, and we've already started our campaign. I was just going to be content to wait, until a friend sent me a link to some photo of some fantasy figures a guy had made by chopping the heads off of dollar store animals, and gluing them to the bodies of 28mm plastic medieval figures. The little lightbulb went on in my brain...I had just seen a small elephant figure in a box of junk, and I knew I had a spare Bones Bugbear laying around somewhere... I found the elephant and the Bugbear, but I had borrowed the Bugbear's weapon hand for an Orc a while back. So, a quick dig in the bits box, and I came up with what I believe is a GW Ogre weapon hand. A little bit of sawing, and I had this. It was just a matter of gluing it all together then. I now need to greenstuff around the head to blend it to the body, and I think I will add some ears. I'm not sure if I will leave him with Bugbear feet, or go to the trouble to sculpt them into something more elephant-like. Generally, though, I'm very happy with the results!

    I'm working my way through painting up miniatures from the original Relic Knights kickstarter, and from a few assorted "grab bag" pieces I've picked up in the meantime. These pieces are "Delphyne" (the little girl) and "Ekhis" (the "big bad wolf"), who represent a "Questing Knight" (Delphyne) and "Cypher" (Ekhis) pair for the "Doctrine" faction (which is sort of a "magic high school" faction, though it has a few oddball models such as this one that I'm not sure quite fit the theme at all). From the color text (paraphrasing from memory) on the card: Ekhis: "Grrr." Delphyne: "Oh, don't FUSS! Now you look PRETTY!" Something just amuses me greatly about the idea of "Little Red Riding Hood" turning out way, WAY differently (because Little Red happens to be a mahou shoujo?) and she ends up with "Big Bad" as her pet (begrudgingly putting up with things like getting his fur braided and put up in pink ribbons and having big obnoxious bandages pasted onto every "ouchie"). Among the Relic Knights figures I've had to paint up, Delphyne actually has one of the better-defined faces, with a distinct dot for a nose, a big enough mouth that I can depict a toothy grin, and large enough eyes to add irises. Several of the "Doctrine" minis seem a bit more cartoony than minis from the other lines -- especially the "Novitiates," who look absurd, and have clunky clodhopper shoes more akin to something that Pinocchio might wear -- for better or worse. Here, I think it works. The background "cottage" piece is a plastic cast made by my friend Chris Stadler, using Hirst Arts Castlemolds. The cottage has "breakaway" walls that can be removed so that the remainder can represent a "destroyed" version of the building, and the roof can be removed to have access to place minis and furniture inside. I just helped with the painting. He also made the grass/hill terrain pieces depicted (with cut plastic for the grass templates, and "pink stuff" foam board for the hills). I'm painting up the "Noh Empire" and "Doctrine" minis for him. He got me some "Black Diamond" minis that I'll be painting up once I get these done -- they might make good adversaries/rivals for the IMEF, Nova Corp Mercs and/or Blackstar Privateers.

    77185: Large Earth Elemental Kevin Williams This guy has been awaiting proper completion for about a year. Every time I had grey paint left over, I added it to him. I found him a struggle to complete because of his size and because of all the mold lines. Every time I turned him around I found more that I missed when prepping him. I finally gave up on trimming them and just gave him a proper base and a finished paint job. It's still a speed paint, but at least he's done and ready for use in my D&D game. Only 30 projects left on my shelf of shame!

    One of the quick commissions I picked up at Con of the North 2 weeks ago. Only 2 hours on her, so nothing super special. Though it is the 2nd time I've painted her.

    Sorry. Finished these a long time ago but just got to taking pics and uploading. Offsite linked for noodity: https://imgur.com/a/di18m Not too bad to paint, a few tight corners and I did my best to NNM, still learning, still a ways to go but good enough for tabletop. Lots more Raging Heroes to paint.

    I tried it and here it is! Is it better? I think I could have put less glue, the feet look a little buried.

    Received the platypus box. It is one of the least full boxes I have gotten in a while, which is fine because it also has the most stuff I want. I will have to do some digging to find suitable trades, but, if I can find them, I have a couple larger things that I have tried to put in boxes before and have not had space. Wish me luck!
