    Redcap Dwarf from Massive Darkness

    This little guy caused me a bit of pain. I sliced my finger open getting him off his base. Despite that, he was fun to paint. I was using a really limited palette because he just screams redcap to me. Thus, the blood red hat. It was a quick and dirty paint job, to take my mind of things for a bit. Fun he was though! As always, C&C welcomed. Used BONES paints: 09279 - Fresh Blood 09121 - Khaki Shadow 09274 - Vampiric Shadow 09442 - Barbarian Flesh 09441 - Ruddy Flesh 09438 - Tempest Grey 09436 - Bleached Linen CAH

    CAH's Troll for the table...

    Yeah.. He is the Bones the version. Thanks for the compliment! I have found some of the Bones lose a bit of detail on the medium and small minis, but the larger ones tend to be pretty well defined. CAH

    CAH's Troll for the table...

    A dense, smelly fog encases the area around you, made all the more ominous by the darkness of the night. The ground is wet, soft, and sticky beneath your feet as you move through the swampy landscape, desperately seeking a safe spot - or even a dry spot - to set up camp for the night. Ahead, you see a shadowy visage of something large; slowly the party makes it way towards it, weapons at the ready. As is comes closer into view, it becomes clear that you may have found a place to bed down for the night. An outcropping of rocks, revealing the entrance to a cave; solid ground. As you move to the entrance, shining the lantern inside, you are overcome by the stench of rotting flesh. Before you can react, a low grow emanates from the cave; yellow eyes narrowing just beyond the light. In one quick movement the tusked beast lunges forward, intent on making you its next meal! The troll here was painted for the table, as a side boss for my D&D group. I tried a few different things here, to give him that swampy/dirty feel. I am really happy with they way he turned out. Hope you like him! CAH

    CAH's Elven Mage... for a friend.

    Thanks. It was an interesting feat working with those yellows. It’s not a color I work with often.

    CAH's Elven Mage... for a friend.

    This is a piece I did for a friend of mine. It's for his D&D character who is currently trapped in the underdark. He said the character was an Evocation Specialist, using Ice lance, Lightening bolt, and fireball. The color palette came from that idea, using cool colors for the ice lance, and the warm colors from the fireball. The hair, though you cant tell from my awesome cellphone picture, is actually highlighted with metallic Mirthril, since the character has silvery hair. Overall, I am really happy with how he came out. I am planning to do a cave like base, but for now the solid base will work. Enjoy! CAH

    CAH's Baldric the Wizard (Massive Darkness Board Game)

    Thanks for the kind words. It was a labor of love. This was one of the first models where I attempted to wet blend instead is washing and building up. I was very pleased with the result.

    Sic'em Pugsly!! I'm digging your take on this little guy! I need to pick them up. CAH
  11. As with all of my pieces, this was painted with Reaper MSP, and Reaper Bones MSP. The robes are the layered blues (Void Blue, Tropical, Glacier, and Frost). The hair was done with Gothic Crimson, Valcanic Orange, and Canary Yellow. The white parts of the robe were completed using Khaki Shadow, Bleached Linen, and Dragon White. The gold was Desert Stone, Golden blonde, then washed with a Candlelight yellow glaze. I like the effect overall. I had fun with this piece, but it was mainly an exercise in rebasing. I wanted to add him to a clear acrylic base, so that I could see how well it would come out. I've seen many figures, mostly for board games, on this type of base, and I thought it would be neat for my players. Also, the bases that I put on my figures, are sometimes distracting to my players during the game. Things like snow on a figure base, but the adventure is currently in a tropical jungle or desert. Nothing major, but I thought it might be a little less distracting for game pieces. I still plan on decorating the bases of my display pieces. So, what do you think of the piece overall? CAH

    CAH's Oni from Massive Darkness

    So, last night, I had a particularly bad night at work. As I am trying to be more health concsious, I came home and sat at my desk. Instead of downing a 1/2 a bottle of bourbon, I opted to spend the next 2 1/2 hours painting this while trying to clear my head. It worked. He's not Reaper. He is an Oni from the Massive Darkness board game. I drew heavily from World of WarCraft on this one. For those of you that have played it, I felt the model greatly resembled a Troll. The paints are all Bones MSP, and some washes from GW. Overall, for a piece I just wanted to get done, I think he came out pretty well. I didn't even start him until after midnight, and I wrapped him around 2:45am or 3am. By that point I was exhausted, and wasn't really concerned with anything but finding my way to bed. CAH
