  1. Thanks uber! The white is definitely a first and I feel like something just seems off with it. Most everything else I'm pretty happy with. Tonight I went ahead and finished up the cloak. I used a little bit of purple nightshade with VGC Scarlett red for the shadows. From there I highlighted up to VGC bloody red. I'm pretty happy overall with the cloak. Still have the sword, face and hair to finish up. Hopefully one more night of painting and I'll just about be finished up.
  2. Finally had a chance to do some more work. Gloves and boots mostly finished. Armor is finished up. Still need to highlight the sleeves and pants a little more. Still need to go back and re highlight the sword and gold parts on the armor. Face is probably next on my list to do. Still quite a bit of work left to do. Hopefully I'll be able to get more done this week.
  3. Thank you all for the compliments and encouragement! I really like this mini and hopefully I'll do it justice. So I cleaned up what should and shouldn't be armor last night. I ended up using the stock picture off DSM's website to help sort things out. I also finished base coats on everything except the sword handle. I was cleaning up when I saw it needed done. I also worked on the armor and started highlighting it up. I'm thinking it might need some glazes to even out the color transitions and try and make it look more like armor. I'm also not sold on the gold parts I have painted on his legs. I'm thinking those should probably go white. Still undecided.
  4. I haven't played UO in a very long time. Probably since early 2000's. I remember playing the original game though before they brought out Felucca and up until third dawn. I switched over to Dark Age of Camelot when that came out.
  5. I'm going to be playing in a second D&D group starting in a couple of weeks so I decided to get started on painting up my new character. I'm using darksword miniatures male warrior as my 2-handed vengeance paladin. It's really the only two handed weapon sculpt I could find that I really liked. I decided to just leave him on his base with how the sword is. I had to assemble the hand with the sword as there were two options for weapons, the greatsword and a great axe. Mold lines really weren't too bad. I decided to go with a red cloak since he's going to be from the order of the gilded eye. Their symbol looks to be a red background with a white gauntlet with an eye on the fist. I don't think I'm going to add the symbol to the cloak. Maybe if he had a shield I would give some freehand a try. Most of the base base coating is completed and I got started on the eyes. The armor I base coated a dark grey as I plan to highlight up from there to make the armor white. So the only areas the base coat should be showing is the shaded areas. I might add or subtract some gold details on the armor as I progress. Also the boots seem like they should be leather the more that I look at the details. For the most part they don't look too bad. I'm going to try and get the black outline a little thinner when I do the skin. Also the left eye is a little larger than the right, but I don't think it looks too bad. I'm undecided on touching it at this point because I don't want to really mess it up.
  6. So I finished this guy up in between working on the couple of other WIPs I have going. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out. I didn't spend as much time on this one as I normally do for highlights and details. I definitely stole the idea for the blue eyes off the painted picture on the reaper store. The base is a secret weapons lava base. Instead of lava I gave it some rusty pools of water using realistic water.
  7. So I pushed in tonight to try and get to a point where I'm happier with everything. I went ahead and highlighted all of the red and added some wolf grey to the skin. After that I primed and base coated the wings. I think I'm going to try and paint most of the underside of the wings before I assemble them. The outer side I'll probably wait because I'm going to have to sculpt some hair it looks like where it transitions into the wings. i finished up adding some glowing reddish orange eyes. They could be better but not too bad. I'm starting to warm up to this model now. I'll need to add some lighter highlights on the hair, but that can wait until the wings are assembled.
  8. Thanks for the encouragement pochi! I'm definitely taking the red brighter. That will be the darkest red and highlight up from there. I also need to paint the skin. I think that's the other main problem. It's kind of hard to see, but the left leg and right foot are still black. I'm thinking of maybe a pale grey for the skin. Something a little lighter, but not a normal skin color.
  9. Little bit more work here. Got most of the base colors blocked in now. Still have some areas to clean up. Just have the metal left mostly to base in. Hair is carrot top red. I used a mixture of 6:1 leather brown to beasty brown for the couple of leather parts. Lastly wolf grey for the fur. After the metal is finished up I'll work on the face.
  10. Got some more work done on this. I'm not super happy with how it's looking right now. I'll probably add a little more color and definition to the armor as things progress. Right now it all looks like a big grey mess. Next up is to get the wings primed and painted. I'm thinking of going purple on the wings. Probably darker at the top and lighter at the tips.

    Exactly where I'm at. I know I should probably go more addons and less encounters for functional purposes since I don't have any existing pieces, but I just can't help myself. So I picked out my favorite encounters and I'm hoping I'll have enough of a lot of the basic pieces to make some decent dungeons.

    So I think I have my pledge figured out, at least until the pledge manager comes out. Right now I'm in for a level 1 pledge with the following encounter addons: Dias of the dead, gorgon tiers, the menagerie, and the eldritch pools. All unpainted. This puts me up around $650. I'll probably look at moving up to a level 5 pledge during the pledge manager, but that will depend on funds and what bones 4 looks like. I may just go with a couple add ons to fill any any gaps. I would love to just go up to a dungeon of doom, but that isn't realistic at this point.
  13. Here is my next project I'm trying to focus on while filling in with the hill giant. This is a birthday present for a friend. I'm thinking of going for a dark angel look with reds, purples and blacks. I'll attach the wings after I get most of the upper portion painted up.
  14. Finally had a chance to throw another 4 coats of cadmium skin on. It looks a little better in the pictures than it does in person. I'll probably do at least one more coat before moving on to shading.
  15. I've been working on this guy for the past week or so. It's one of the PC's in a D&D game I'm a part of. I tried to work on making the skin, especially the face, have better shading to look a little more realistic. I'd like to give a shout out to @Willen for taking the time to help me out in my WIP post.
