  1. It certainly is taking some getting used to. I figure I would start with the large figs and work my way up (down) to the smaller ones. Although having used it a bit already, I can't imagine trying to do Khanjira by hand anymore
  2. Well this here is my first attempt using an air brush. little tricky to get the hang of but I think it turned out ok. finished off the details with a regular brush. Not enough confidence to try doing eyes with an airbrush. This here is Reapers Frog Demon from the Bones 2 kickstarter (standing ontop of Fat Dragon Games, Castle Winterhawk ruined Tower) any advice for someone new to air brushes?
  3. I think the flash on the camera gets part of the credit for that. Although I am apparently a bit of an odd-ball among my friends who paint minis. Everyone tells me I should be using an air-brush, but I just like using regular brushes for everything. down side of that of course is they wear out a lot and I have to get new ones every couple of months.
  4. Ok so here are a few more shots We got a Skeleton Giant and a few characters plus a big nasty demon fellow
  5. And DONE I'll probably put up some more photos later but here is the whole set I got, plus a few from other kickstarters I got at the same time Now on to Bones 2.
  6. Seems like forever since I got Bones 1 but I'm nearly finished with them, only a dozen or so left to paint. As I wait here for Bones 2 to arrive I figured I would show off a couple of the ones I've done from the first batch. I'll do a mass shot showing everything once they are all done. like Good old Kaladrax (77192) and the Great Cthulhu (77194)
  7. Delayed

    This isn't a miniature's Kickstarter but I find many who like minis and gaming tend to like cartoons as well Fredanator is doing a Kickstarter to fund Bee and Puppycat. They have the first episode up online for people who want to check it out and it's a fun series that deserves to be made. More importantly it deserves to be made without a production commitee ruining it by insisting on a checklist of "marketable items" to include. So if you want to pitch in or just want to check out the first episode here is the link
  8. Probably your hand will get more steady in time. tough I'm only 37, so can't really compare ;). The models that you chose are quite tricky to paint the eyes in as well. Nice work on the flames! looks really good. Are you using some kind of varnis at the end? Some parts of your miniatures seem to be really shiny, while other parts aren't. I was using a gloss seal when I was finished but I've run out and ened up getting a Matte Sealer cause that was all the store had at the time. Not sure which I like better yet
  9. Thanks I'm finding Eyes bit harder than they used to be. I'm 40 now and my hand isn't nearly as steady as it used to be.. Finding more than a few guys are coming out Crosseyed. Thinking might be best to avoid doing pupiles from now on.
  10. Changed my location for taking photos...still not great at it but I managed to get some decent pics
  11. managed to finish a few more but only 1 photo turned out any good. Got the fire the right way round this time though
  12. Did not even think of that till you mentioned it. Good thing I was using those fireballs as test runs
  13. Complete

    I pitched in a little bit more in hopes of getting it over hte hump. It is really close, probably come right down to the wire. I know I have a lot of minis already what with the bones and all but Swashbuckler Dwarves call to me. and that Dwarf Priest, that's just icing on the cake.
  14. Well my Bones showed up on Monday and I have been hard at work painting them. Little out of practice and dusting off some old paints from who knows how long ago. Tried two different ideas for the fire balls cause I want to have a good idea what I'm going to do with the transparent plastics once I get to the big ones. Need to find a way to bring out the faces a bit better I think, there is some decent detail in them but I don't think my current paint skills are bringing it out properly. I like how the mythos Moon Beast turned out. That was the one I dusted off old Paints for. Close to 20 year old paint yet still good. over all though I'm very pleased with the product and I have many many months ahead to improve my painting skills.
  15. I had a fair number of Bendy Weapons but the Boiled Water + Ice Water treatment sorted that out. 77052 Aina, Female Valkirie was particularly bad, her sword was coiled all the way down to stab her in the head. It uncurled on it's own as soon as I put it in the hot water
