  1. Thank you all for the nice comments. The craft paints are "FolkArt Metallic". I got them in Walmart (Canada). I used copper (very red) and bronze (more orange). The washes were Vallejo game ink. Yes, the skin on the wings is also metallic. (Very diluted metallic paint on white primer)
  2. She is looking great! i really like how you painted the "white" shirt.
  3. Hi, Here is my take on Kyphrixis painted as a Copper Dragon. I used metallic (craft) paints throughout. What I found the hardest was to try to break the monotony of a big metallic piece and give him character. I mostly used various alternated washes to try to accomplish that, and a good dose of verdigris. C&C always appreciated. (Also, due to the metallic sheen, I struggled to take good pictures so I varied backgrounds)
  4. Sooo many shades of awesome !
  5. It is really looking crisp. And the leathery brown skin is just right.
  6. Wow, so many details and hoses with different colours. Such neat paint job. I love the glow effect on its Halberd looking weapon. And the green goop on the base is just incredible. Definitely looks radioactive
  7. No adventurer got swallowed yet. But thanks for getting its name right. Goremaw... I updated the title
  8. Hi, Here is my first painted mini from Bones 3: the "Great Maw". I really love the size and weight of this "miniature" (not sure if we can still cal it "mini"). Most of the paint was done with washes on simple black and white primer. I added some high gloss varnish and some 2 part epoxy glue in some places for added slime effect. C&C Welcome. And at least, now, my Mashaaf has a friend to terrorize players with:
  9. Hi, Here is my take on the Reaper Chimera in Bones. Mine was pretty wonky and wasn't responding well to boiling water, but I still like the sculpt very much. I re-based the mini on a 50*50mm square in order to use it as a "Beast of Nature" for my "Kings Of War - Forces of Nature" army. Paint job is my standard army quality, but I had some fun on the base with some putty and water effects. I'm trying to get most of the bases in this army to be a bit scenic.
  10. I like the game. The mechanics are simple enough to pick it up quickly and have fun with my young (primary school) kids, while still needing some strategy (mostly placement and movement). My kids learned the hard way that getting all the characters in a single file in a narrow corridor with the mage on the front line is a bad idea... the outcome wasn't pretty... Also, there are a lot narrative missions meaning you don't have to prepare anything in advance and just start to play There are also options for more advanced gamers about creating your own character and leveling up. But I haven't touched that at all.
  11. These look sweet! And the scenic base is Awesome!
  12. Hi, After being very lazy on the painting front for a while, I decided to knock a batch of models off of my unpainted shelf. These models are part of an expansion from the "Dungeon Saga" board game called the "Warlord of Galahir". The theme of the expansion is mostly Orcs and Goblins with a couple of new heroes: a Salamander (a fiery lizard man) and a Glade walker shaman (a tree-man). The models are cast in "coloured plastics" so the details may not be the sharpest, there was a lot of warping, but it is pretty good for a boardgame, and there is a pair of identical sculpts in each batch. Painting-wise, I went for quick tabletop quality, no blending, stark highlights, and resilient clear coat as I'm expecting these models to see quite a bit of action with the kids. The hardest mini to paint was the Orclings as they are super-tiny and tightly crammed on the base (they are based by default) making reaching out some spots challenging. C&C welcome Heroes and Boss: Trolls: Orcs: Goblins: Orclings and Mawbeasts:
  13. Hi all, To start of the year well, I decided to clear some of my primed but not yet painted minis. Here are 2 variations of Blaine (Mantic's mascot) I got from Dungeon Saga and KoW rewards. The version on foot was not very inspiring... but the mounted one was really fun (what is not to like to have a predator looking guy riding a dino!). For the dino, I tried something a bit different from my usual paint job and started with a 2 tone base coat (green an yellow) that I then covered all around with a camo green wash. I'm quite happy with the result. C&C Welcome. Blaine Mounted: Blaine on foot:
  14. Great Kit bashing! And nice greys and blacks. Ties the force well together
