  1. So yeah, been a long time. I had actually quit painting for some time. 5 or 6 years at least. I had a few false starts getting back in to to the hobby in that time. But yeah, pretty much the last several years, my brushes were dry, and my paints were unopened. Flash-forward to this past August, and I kinda got the itch again. The minis in the Nolzur's Marvelous Minis line for D&D really caught my notice and got me pretty excited. So, I bought a few, got my brushes wet again and, well, the picspam speaks for itself, I think. I have some success, some not quite as successful, but, lots of finished output since August. Also pictured: a WIP of a Blightfang mini I received as a gift a few days ago. It's nice to be painting again.

    Frost Giant

    Seems appropriate given the slow freeze currently overtaking my state...

    Wizkids Pathfinder Red Dragon

    And: done. This beast was full of challenges. All the spikes, claws, scales, and a great big base that created a lot of negative space due to the sheer amount of real estate a 4" base provides. But, I was inspired by the classic image of a Great Red Wyrm on its treasure hoard that was frequently pictured in earlier editions of D&D. Fortunately, both Wizkids amd Reaper have treasure piles aplenty for mini terrain, and soon enough I was able to make the base much more interesting than a bunch of dirt, rocks, and grass tufts. Anyway, here he is! A great big dragon, pictured witha party after treasure that should have brought more friends, because things are about to get toasty for them. ;-)

    Jaw-droppingly imaginative, per usual, Lanse.

    Thanks. I figured I'd include that pic to answer the question before anyone asked. ;)

    Frost Giant

    Ok, he sounds REALLY cool now! And since you posted that last image, now I wish they'ed gone with that image to sculpt the figure. The great axe and the White Dragon skull helm are just too cool (was that a pun? I think that was a pun...)!

    Wizkids Pathfinder Red Dragon

    Your self-control is enviable. I couldn't stand to know that all 3 were wrapped up and unpainted beneath the tree! Thanks Randy! I tried to make them pretty cool looking, since they make up a good portion of the figure. Thanks. The sculpt is CRAZY good! Big, imposing, more spikey bits than a squad of Chaos Space Marines. Yeah, it's cool. Thanks! I was wondering if the overall feel of the skin and scales was coming through. Thanks for confirming!

    Frost Giant

    Thanks! Sadly, I am unfamiliar with Storm Kings Thunder. To me, he was just a cool giant! But, I hear that Harshnag is pretty cool! (was that a pun? I think it was a pun...) Yes it is. The sculpt is sooooo good! Thank you! Mission accomplished! There's some drybrushing, for sure. Glad you like it! Thanks. That's one of my favorite aspects of the sculpt as well. Thank you! The leather was several different shades of brown before I settled on that one. Thanks! Thanks! Yeah, I went a little overboard with the snow effect. Ah well. Not much to be done about it now. That stuff dries to a crazy hardness.

    Wizkids T-Rex

    Ever since I was a kid, I've been crazy about Dinosaurs. I'm probably underselling that a bit. Regardless, my love for the creatures has carried over into adulthood. So, when Wizkids previewed this I was...apprehensive. Their preview image was taken at a less than flattering angle that really didn't show much of thw mini. Then they showed up in stores and sure enough, the "mini" pretty much rules. T-Rex has always been my favorite. Especially in a fantasy context. I was always amused when reading those old Marvel Conan comics when Conan and his sidekicks were harrowed by a dragon and the reveal of said "dragon" was actually a Tyrannosaurus. Anyway, I've never had the opportunity to paint many Dinos since I took up this hobby. And I usually didn't like what options were out there. I'm really grateful that Wizkids released something cool AND affordable.

    Wizkids T-Rex

    I hope you find one, it's a cool figure and fun to paint! I'm pretty sure they'll be easier to track down than say, a Beholder. LOL, I checked out a good deal of your Lost World thread (which I love). Yes, you do have lots of Rex's! Still, always room for one more, eh?

    Thanks! I will check it out when I get home from work! Pretty big. See attached photo. That is very high praise indeed. Thank you!

    Wizkids T-Rex

    Thanks! It really is a fantastic sculpt and has so much detail. Thanks! Right there with you. When I saw the previews for it, I was all "ehhhh...maybe not". Then I saw it in person and was sold immediately and had to get some paint on it right away. Thank you!

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Oh thanks! Here's a close up of it!

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    If anyone was wondering about the T-Rex as well, here it is with the Giant, a halfling on a small base, a dwarf on a medium base, and elf on a medium base, and my favorite Dragonborn also on a medium base but is pretty big for a medium character, and a quite impressive Owlbear on a large base. As you can see, they are all dwarfed by the Giant and the T-Rex. Seriously worth every penny in my opinion.
  15. I may have "disappeared" for a while. However, I still kept my eye on what was coming out from time to time, and I've always watched the Kickstarters with interest. So when these new Crusader sculpts showed up in whichever Bones Kickstarter they were presented in (3? Yeah, pretty sure it was 3), it kicked me straight in the nostalgia feels. The fact that the new ones are about 1000% more impressive than the old Warlord Knights, Unforgiven, and Ironspines really added to that. Because as expansive as my old Crusader army was, it probably would have been even bigger (because why not just entirely miss the point of a skirmish game, right Kel?) if the grunts of the faction looked like this. I really didn't like the old Crusader grunts all that much, and painting them was somewhat a chore. And then I forgot about them, and went on with my life. Until I saw this fella at my FLGS yesterday. Boom, instant nostalgia strikes again and I say to myself "one more, for old times sake". So I picked him up for a low-low price (gotta love Bones pricing), got him home, spent way too long straightening a very bent sword (gotta be ambivalent about Bones material), and then took the day and well, started and finished painting him up! And since I was kicking it old-school I decided that I would do ****-all with the pudding-base besides paint it and add some static grass. The result was oddly satisfying, actually. So, for your consideration: one more. For old time's sake.

    And now I want to go watch a certain John Carpenter movie. Good job!

    Shipwreck Golem

    Stunning. Absolutely stunning. The worn look of it spot on.

    Wouldn't know it by looking at it, as it looks great!

    Spring Exchange 2018 for Cerebro1974

    Man, I love that orc. The sculpt is so cool, and you nailed the feel of it with your paint. The Venger figure makes me want to pour myself a bowl of cereal and watch old cartoons!

    Bones 1 Dungeon Dressing

    Thanks! I used to be pretty ambivalent about painting up terrain. Now? I wish I had even more! Thanks to all!

    Bones 1 Dungeon Dressing

    Nothing terribly special. Just got a little tired of painting humanoids, so I dug these out of my box of Bones minis from the 1st Kickstarter.

    Thanks all!

    Bones Fire Elemental

    I attempted to make this guy stand out a bit more than the translucent orange it was cast in allowed. I was...somewhat successful.

    Human Rangers

    Thanks all! @Lucian523 Yep, that one is my favorite of the two. His armor is really cool, and it's not every day you see a character with a warpick that isn't a dwarf. I especially like that said warpick appears to be the claw or tooth of some great beast mounted on to a haft.

    Human Rangers

    This is an interesting pair. One is fairly typical for a Ranger charater, the other, a bit more imaginative than usual.
