  3. Reapercon BoGW?

    Nothing yet..the Drow still has it..
  4. So lately I love to paint busts, and larger miniatures. Now I have been drooling over several large scale miniatures, 54 to 200mm... I looked at sites who sell those, like Pegaso, Andrea, El Greeco etc etc.. And what bothers me a bit but also intrigues me is the extraordinary painting on some of those. I especially mean things like the shields on Greek Hoplites, the Barding and Banners of Medieval Knights. Some of these look like masterpaintings on a mini. So my question. Are these superb painters? Or is there a trick I could learn? Are there templates being used and how do you use those? Is this in anyway possible for an avarage painter to achieve something like that? And with a BRUSH! I don't own ( never will I touch..) an airbrush.. I know there are a few painters on this forum who are able to pull this off. So care to share some secrets? Some examples of what I'm talking about I got these from the internet, there are many more beautiful examples like this. I'm no Michelangelo, but I really would try to paint a shield like that on a larger mini. So I'm curious if there are any step by steps, tricks, and such available.

    Heavy winds here in the Netherlands. Even shipping containers in the Rotterdam harbour toppled over. Trucks are being blown on their side, solar panels are blown off the roof, trees fell down on roads..
  17. I will paint and create a Reptilian Army pure for fun. It will consists of many different kind of Reptiles and Amphibians. Mostly Snakemen, Lizardmen, Frogmen, Dragonmen, Turtlemen, Fishmen, Dinosaurs and Insects. I will happily include any monster I think will fit. Khanjira will be the centrepiece at some sort as the Living Lizard God. I do not play any games, so this will be pure for my own and (I hope your) fun to create. EDIT: The above was my original plan, over time and thanks to the comments made by other Forumites, this has developed into a story. This resulted in more Factions I wanted to build and paint, so this Project now also includes Pirates, Conquistadores, Native Warriors based on Inca/Aztec/Maya cultures. EDIT: And now it will also include Undead! *********** Captain Luigiano and his army had been travelling through the jungle for weeks now. The sunlight was blocked by the dense canopy of trees. Some of the men had contracted fever, and those darn mosquitos were a big nuisance! He looked at the golden plaque he had obtained. Gold, with a snakeman made out of gems on it. With this he had convinced the men to follow him. Somewhere in this accursed jungle there was a city made of gold, he was sure of it. They would conquer this city and become rich beyond belief. He looked at his army, they even had a few cannons. Nothing would stop them! Finally they reached a clearance. The men were pleased, at least they could see the sun again. They took a rest and a drink, tended to the sick. Suddenly they heard a loud roar from the other side of the clearing. Birds flew away, trees where falling! Some poison darts flew and two soldiers fell, they died before they hit the ground. A loud roar and an enormous terrifying Lizard appeared. One soldier died out of fear from just looking at it. Then the Reptilian Horde emerged from the Jungle. **************************

    When I started my Lost world Project I wanted to build a Reptilian/ Dinosaur army ( Not GW and only for fun and display) Then I began telling stories, people reacted and I included the minis for Conquistadores, next came the Pirates and the Native Meso-Americans. Sure...a few Terrorbirds, some Jungle Animals. Wait...Undead are cool and Giant Insects! What about some Egyptian style Undead from overseas invading the land? Of course!!! Why did I include Mutants, Beastmen and Dragonmen? Did I just started to think about Shrooms? *** Sigh***
  19. The Pond Wars range! I just put it out here as a reminder to myself. First I do need to paint a lot. The backlog is big enough as is. But I know I will expand the armies in the future and taking notes where to get stuff is pretty useful. I also keep an eye out for the Creative Beast Model kits.. Large feathered dino kits will be available soon.. This life is too short, the storage space is too small, the money is not enough to buy and paint all I like. But I'm enjoying myself painting what I can and drooling over what I like. This hobby is a lot of fun. Of course I might have been better off, if I left the Undead and the Insects out of it.. But hey...I like them! The more I paint, the more ideas I have... I'm doomed
