  1. It won't be right next to them, but close enough - I have 15-20 painted models for sale on a shelf there at any given time. They don't move too often, but the shop likes having examples of painted Reaper stuff on hand to inspire new painters and D&D players there. The base is a little bit of freehand. I just sanded off one of my Reaper bases and did the pattern fairly quick before gluing the figure on top. I thought about bringing the OSL down to reflect off the wood, but I didn't want to make the light stretch that far lest I get too tied up in colored blue lighting on the rest of the model (which was already a bit of a challenge given how oddly-shaped the flames are).
  2. I painted this guy over the weekend to toy around with the LED Blue paint I haven't gotten to use much since I got the MSP 2014 expansion set last holiday season. I'm not terribly happy with the OSL, and could have spent hours more doing more glazes and highlights, but he's going on a shelf for sale at my LGS and I made myself limit my time for extra details since I've found there's an upper limit on what the local D&D players are willing to spend. Anyway, I really liked the sculpt and had a lot of fun with him. Here's hoping he sets something on fire on a gaming table soon!
  3. Nissa doesn't have pupils or irises that are visible. I based it off the art here.
  4. Thanks all! The shield was definitely the most challenging, and I got the scale of the griffon off a bit so his wings aren't fully visible (though I think it still works as a stylistic choice). This Bones model has some bending on the top of the shield that heat couldn't fix, so it made a great focus for some battle damage.
  5. I got the Arena of the Planeswalkers boardgame over a year ago and hated the factory paint jobs, especially for Nissa. For those unfamiliar, she is an elvish nature mage with facial and not, as the stock model might suggest, a twisted demon monkey. Finished pictures first! I gave her staff a blue glow to match her latest character development in Amonkhet. The model's detail wasn't great, especially around the face, but I'm decently happy with it. Now brace yourself. Here's the "before" image. Plastic surgery was required.
  6. I apparently never uploaded this one. He was a commission for a D&D friend at my local shop awhile back. The use of metallic paint and the color scheme was requested, and I suggested a griffon on the shield since the character rides them.
  7. I've had this pirate on my shelf for a little bit and decided last night to carve off his pistol (since most D&D settings don't have guns) and put some color on him. Now get gets to sit on my LGS's shelf until someone picks him up for their D&D character.
  8. I've had this guy since the first kickstarter and have put off painting him due to his distinct lack of a nose in the bones version. A couple nights ago I decided to perform some rhinoplasty with green stuff so I could put him to use in a D&D game. I went with metallic paints rather than spend too much time blending NMM on his armor, and it doesn't hurt that he'll look shiny on the table. The design on the shield is the symbol of the Forgetten Realms deity Tempus, but it also works for the Red Knight (whose red horse chess piece is a less exciting design to paint).
  9. Looks great! Especially for your 3rd mini. You captured a lot of small details and did a very clean job separating things like the bare metal on the shield and armor from the blue sections.
  10. Very good reason for that! Yellow is a hateful color that sucks up all of your time and still doesn't look right when you finally surrender and call it done.
  11. I haven't posted anything here in awhile, so I thought I would fix that. I've had Aviriel since the first kickstarter, and finally decided to paint her as a gift for a friend. The shield was definitely my favorite part to paint, though I didn't get the blends quite as smooth as I would have liked on the gold there.
  12. I painted this guy as a commission for a friend a few weeks ago. Apologies for the poor lighting and background in the pictures - I finished it away from my usual setup before handing it over. I was told to make the clothing a bit off for an adventurer to showcase the character's inexperience.
  13. I like to keep a stock of painted miniatures available for the D&D crowd at my local game shop, but I always struggle to keep enough male adventurers on the shelf before people snatch them up. Logrim here was a fairly quick project intended to fill the ranks somewhat. I decided to stick on true metallic paints for him to save time, and didn't do anything crazy with the tabard. Still, I'm happy with him and I'm hopeful that he'll be smiting evil on a tabletop soon!
  14. I painted a metal version of this guy awhile ago but decided to toss some paint on my Bones version. It's got a few flaws that I didn't spend time on correcting too much, but I've already had a friend ask to buy it for a D&D character so I don't feel so bad about them.
  15. A quick paint job I threw together sometime last week. I avoided NMM and decided to invest the time I would have spent there into making her cloak pop out a bit instead.
