    If Santa was a mindflayer

    Thanks! I started getting some paint on him today. With my current painting speed, he might just be done in time for Christmas...

    If Santa was a mindflayer

    I ran a D&D game last Christmas in which included the party encountered the sinister villain Santac'Laus. I didn't have a mini for him (it?) at the time, but I tried a bit of sculpting and present to you: Santac'Laus, the Christmas Mindflayer! The present will be going on the base once I've got things painted up. I think he might become a recurring character every Christmas...

    Looking for a lean, bare-chested human male...

    Ooh he looks about 75% of the way to what I'm after! Think I'll try the kitbashing approach and switch Chan Li's head for another, add a scimitar (and maybe some sort of spell effect). But if that doesn't work, Sajan looks like a good backup, thanks!

    Looking for a lean, bare-chested human male...

    Thanks all, that's all really helpful stuff! Seems like the bondslave might be the way to go, with Chan Li a close second. Fnordlover, that Matthias figure looks lovely, but definitely a little flamboyant for the character! Hmm, maybe Chan Li with the bondslave's bald head... I like the fact that the torso is more visible - my character's body is covered with tattoos (basically his spellbook), so I think that might work better than the bondslave. Thanks Mad Jack for the boot-sculpting advice - I'll definitely be referring to it when I make my attempt!

    Thanks :) I've certainly got some nefarious plans in mind for him and his friends. Although I wish I'd tidied up the mould lines - I wasn't expecting to go quite so overboard with painting him!

    77026: Young Fire Dragon (as a green dragon)

    Thanks! I had a lot of fun coming up with the base, and it certainly makes it seem more menacing, rearing up to look a hapless adventurer in the eyes...

    Thanks :) And you've just given me an idea on how to paint a load more of them - find some colourful tropical snakes and copy some scale patterns!

    Looking for a lean, bare-chested human male...

    Oh interesting, I hadn't realised it came with a choice of heads. That definitely makes it the best option I've seen so far. I think I'd rather he were holding the sword one-handed, but I might have to compromise on that. And I'd probably try to find something to do a foot swap with - I don't think my sculpting skills are quite up to boots!
  9. ... miniature. I'm looking for a mini for a character I've just started playing in a campaign. I've not found anything that quite fits on Reaper's figure finder, but I'm hoping someone else may make one that's spot on, or at least close enough to mod... Young adult male human Short or no hair Wearing trousers/boots, but nothing on his torso (the character has leather wrist-wrappings, but I'm happy to greenstuff those if need be) Lean and wiry, not overly muscular (Strength is one of his dump stats) Wielding a scimitar and/or a spell effect (though I'm happy to do simple weapon swaps myself) Any suggestions?

    Getting Ready for Waterdeep

    GREEN FLAME! Jared Blando and Mike Schley have both drawn lovely maps of Waterdeep. I won't link because of the commerce rules, but a quick bit of Googling should lead you to them. Or if you can get hold of it, there's an older (TSR-era) publication - Volo's Guide to Waterdeep which I think came with a large map.

    The runes are actually recessed detail, so I can't take too much credit for them! But who can tell what horrors his nostrils may hold...

    77026: Young Fire Dragon (as a green dragon)

    Thanks! He nearly killed our entire party, but it was a good fight, and worth the effort to get it finished in time!

    Thanks :) I was going to paint the second one differently, but I liked the first one so much I just did another one!

    I have some vague plans involving some Red Wizards of Thay in a future D&D game, so thought I'd get some painted in preparation. This is the first, which I'm very pleased with. The face was done mostly with the Tanned Skin triad, with some extra shadow achieved by mixing in blue liner. The beard was Grey Liner plus Rainy Grey, with increasing amounts of Pure White mixed in for the highlights. Similar for the chains, though they got a blue liner coat. Robes were a Spattered Crimson base coat over Brown Liner, with Nightshade Purple shadows, and Gory Red mixed with increasing amounts of orange and/or yellow for the highlights. The scythe handle and scroll bone were mostly Bone triad, with a brown wash and some shading with Woodstain Brown. The blade was mostly Pure Black, Rainy Grey and Pure White, with some Blue Liner mixed in. The scroll got a Polished Bone base coat, with some thin streaks of various light browns, Brown Liner for the glyphs, and a brown wash over the whole thing. This is probably one of the best paint jobs I've done, and certainly the best face to date
  15. This one was painted up in a bit of a hurry for a D&D game. I'm pleased with the overall effect (especially the wing colouring), but I'd like to have taken a bit more time to make the scales pop. The wings were airbrushed to get the smooth blending; the rest was done with a hairy stick. Mostly Peacock Green, Brilliant Green and Viper Green, I think. With some yellow mixed in for highlights and a darker olive shade for the darker bits. The broken tower was made with a sheet of cork - i cut a load of blocks and made the edges a bit ragged, then did a lot of drybrushing and washing. The trailing vines came from a bag of lichen which got some brown wash to make it look slightly less pleasant.
