  1. Great stuff Herman!! (That was my grandfather's name) Hey I assume you have seen it but Avatars of War has a nice mini that I think would fit in good with your project. He's called Berserker Tyrant, you should check him out. There's also a website out there that has some really cool Aztec ruin pieces. They look like broken statues. They are really cool. I don't wanna put the site up as I don't want to get my post removed but you can message me if you like. You might be aware of these already or hell you might have used them. But still thought I would share. Keep up the amazing work! I always look forward to your updates!
  2. I agree with everyone, they look good! My only suggestion would be on the fire sword. Whites and yellows are where the flame is the hottest and the orange and reds are the cooler. So you have to paint fire (or lava) opposite as you would normally paint and highlight. I would suggest that you put the white and yellow toward the base (hilt) and use the red and orange on the tip. The paint job on the sword it excellent as far as laying the paint down and blending it but I would just swap how your colors laid out.
  3. What's that little boar guy called. I really like him and might need to get one myself... although I will not paint it as well as you it looks like a fun paint. Never mind... turns out if you read the post instead of drooling over the pictures you can learn all you need to.

    I might be interested... I just worry about the material.

    That Minotaur looks awesome!! Is it for sure offered if I pledge? I only paint so I would not need more than 10 and would only be at the $25 pledge. I am pretty interested in these... I have been on a beastman kick lately for some reason and I think these would fit in nicely.
  6. Man I like the looks of the mini for next month. I am not crazy about the jester (its cool but just doesn't go with what I am into painting right now) and there are a bunch of paints I want to order. So I guess I'll just plan to order my paints next week.
  7. Yeah I am hoping since she is kind of at an angle and it being DDS2 with a lot of other stuff going on that her eyes won't be so noticeable. I was getting really frustrated last night and hoping after taking a day or two (if I don't get a chance to paint tonight) that I can go back and get something passable for her eyes. ...Maybe I should just make it my thing that I paint sunglasses on all my miniatures...
  8. Hey guys I am finishing up painting the female wizard for DDS2 and she is my last adventurer to paint. I really like how I painted her robes and accents but then I got to the eyes and the wheels fell off! Part of the problem is the Bones material not quite holding the detail on one of the eyes. The major problem though is ME!! Any tips of links or video recommendations for painting eyes? I might post pictures later so you can see the disaster I created but for now any tips would be appreciated. I really don't want to have to buy a new one and start over so I am hoping I can salvage her. Although I painted and painted over them so much last night that I am afraid they are starting to lose their definition. Thanks in advance.
  9. My set up time is very minimal. I am bad about starting over my rinse cup every time and I use an old marinara jar with a lid so this sits in an out of the way place with my other paints in a box. So when I set up I grab my box of paints, my ready to go rinse cup, and plug in my lamp and I am ready to go. The box I have my paints in also has all my brushes and several paper towels so once my lamp is plugged in I have everything I need to paint. Total set up time <5 minutes. I also use a wet pallet that I made myself and do not change until I start a new mini, so I just open this and I am ready to go. This also helps for putting everything away as I don't have a dry pallet that I need to clean and I have paint all the paint I have used ready to go for the next session. All that being said I am still new to painting and I love it so I like to try to spend at a minimum of 30-45 mins every day but that can go up to a couple of hours. It also helps that I really don't like any of my wife's TV shows so I can sit in our living room and still be with her but not have to watch the garbage that she does.
  10. Nice work! What did you use to make that base?
  11. DELAYED

    So I have heard that the Bones 3 will not be hitting retail for like a year. I am just curious if this goes for the paints as well? Any chance they will hit retail any sooner?
  12. WOW!!!
  13. As always... Beautiful!! Every time I see you are posting new pics I get super excited!! I truly truly love everything you do! Amazing work! Did you see that your Geisha is on the Reaper store as an example for that sculpt? Although I am still waiting for more of the DDS2... but as long as you are posting something I am happy! Any chance you could do a WIP for when you are creating one of these beautiful bases? As a newbie to miniatures I have only focused on painting but I am wanting to do some basing. I would really like to see what materials you use and how you use them.
  14. I leave my Bones in the car on hot days all the time! It gives the kids something to do while I'm working, shopping, etc.! I'm just kidding guys! Don't report me! I would never leave my Bones in the car like that!
  15. Dr. Faust has a good tutorial on painting red. From what I can remember brown is a good color to shade red with.
