    Bloodknuckle Grymm - SHD17

    This is the first Stone Haven Miniature I have painted. It was a blast to do. I had a lot of fun playing up the comical part of the miniature. Its just a fun sculpt to paint. Small, but lots of character. Just the smile with the little teeth, and then ability to put some character in the piece made my day. Hope you appreciate the Dwarf Berserker.! Let me know what you think !

    Krass Omenthrall - Reaper

    This is one of Sandra. Garrity's impressive and dynamic sculpts. I really enjoyed trying to show off the dynamic movement, drawing attention to the fine carving, and elements she incorporated into this miniature. Was a lot of fun to paint. I really got into blending and highlighting the figure. When it came to the base, I chose snow to really bring up the contrast, and draw attention to the figure. As always; Your C/C are very welcome and solicited. Leave me a comment please, Its great to get feedback. So here is Krass Omenthrall, as I see him. Jay

    03160 - Krass Omenthrall

    I was looking at this mini, and I see a lot of potential for growth (besides it being so danged dynamic). I have primed and lined him, and I have applied a base coat of "Blue Gunmetal" to the armor. I am thinking purple, gold highlights, blues, and blood red shadows, and tints. I'm being ambitious on this one. I'm paying it back for the amount of blood it drew from me while filing and assembling it ! This is one "sharp" (Literally) miniature ! So, put on your seat belt, tip the nice ticket taker in the scanty outfit, and off we go. Here is where he begins.

    03123 - Townsfolk VIII - Mob

    Here is a quick WIP for two of the members of the village mob, the third was added to the EU/UK box of goodwill earlier in the year. The models were cleaned up and based with some additional sand/ grit around the outside. The models were then given a coat of Brush On Primer. A coat of tanned skin was then given to all exposed flesh and the metal items were give a base coat of black. I then proceeded to put the eyes in place and attempted to use some colour, the pictures may not be that clear but they have blue eyes. Finally a coat of flesh wash was done prior to any highlights. The plan is to see how far I can get these before the new year, as I have two young children I intend to have a quiet night in painting. These could either be the first models of the new year or the last ones of 2015. As always comments welcome.

    SV-02 - Norse Lord

    "The new Jarl sat on his fathers chair. Three months ago; it had been feasting, drinking, wenching, battles to partake in, the clash of weapons and war. Now since the old Jarls passing it was endless council meetings, diplomacy, and boredom. Oh to be guilty, and alive once more !!!" This is an Andrea 54 mm metal miniature. I was given this as a gift, and the moment I held it in my hands I went nuts with anticipation. I have been working on this for 23 days. The detail is incredible, the whole sculpt is a wonderful challenge. I have adored every moment working on this. While I still maintain my preference for 25 mm pieces, I won't shy away from another 54 mm piece. Amazing what it feels like to have space for creativity. As always; your C/C are welcomed, and sought after. Leave me some feedback; please. Here is my interpretation of the Norse Lord. Jay Here is a link to the WIP: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65936-norse-lord/

    Norse Lord

    I have been cleaning and filing this Miniature since Sunday morning. This was a gift from my best friend for co-celebrating his wedding. Knocked me out of the park when I opened it. While they are away on their Honeymoon, I have the pleasure of putting this incredible sculpt together. Mold lines on base have been driving me up the wall. So I now have gotten my first 54 mm challenge. Quite an interesting piece of work. I took some photos as I have started his assembly. Feels good to have a WIP again. Here is what I am working with, oh.. small bag still holds helmet, arms and head. The helmet (much to my relief) does NOT have horns. That does a Nordmans heart good. Jay.

    14106: Dark Maiden

    I've always been a fan of the Dark Maiden sculpts and started painting the standard Warlord version last month. The idea that I had for her was a bit more lively than the version DKS has up on the store page. Rather than being all ghostly I had a more lively animating spirit in mind. I painted her upper body in a fairly normal manner and then blended her dress down into wood. She's still animated though, so her skin is not actually painted with normal "skintones." Instead it is painted using the same paints that I used for the normal wood, just mixed together a bit differently. Speaking of wood, there is quite a lot of it to paint. If you ever want to get some practice in this is a good choice. I also wanted to try out a sea base. I have had very little experience using water effects and gave them a go. After an initial layer of Realistic Water to cover the paint I added some water effects. They didn't look too bad so I added on another layer to give the water even more depth. That actually worked ok, at which point I decided to attempt sea foam. I'm not as much of a fan as to how the sea foam is looking. The water effects seem like they can be cut away and redone, but just in case that messes everything up even more I've gone ahead and taken some show-off pics. If the operation is a success (and I remember) I'll update this thread next week. But just in case I don't, ignore the white and you can imagine what the sea looked like in a time before foam. Can you tell I'm posting while half asleep? Here's the post-op pic. Most of the foam is now gone and the cut away areas can be repaired easily enough. I didn't cut right up against the mini since I didn't want to scrape away any paint.

    Kaia Stormwitch

    I was given this mini as a gift, and decided it was something I hadn't a clue about painting. I've never seen this style before and I am totally unfamiliar with any story line about it. So, I decided to just paint her as I would imagine her to appear. I had a very ambitious base planned, but there is no way I will get it accomplished in the next three weeks, so I went with a bloodied slate walkway. Calling the troops to continue smashing the enemy. Here is my interpretation of Kaia Stormwitch ! Oh, it is marked CW1980. I was not able to take a standard face on photo, due to the flat casting that this piece is in, and all you see with a face on photo is "an Elbow".. Sawwy! Click on the photos; they do enlarge. edited to add ... Two more photos taken on a lower plane to show details. C and C are always welcomed and appreciated ! Jay

    TBM-3021 - Black Knight

    This is a 25mm mini (that's one inch tall)...I always forget to say that when I do one of Tom's mini's. This is SMALL..Very Small..LOL. I love the darn things for some reason. Tom is a fantastic sculptor, and I adore anything that he sculpts. Just realize it WILL be a challenge. I approached the Black Knight on foot (I have another mounted) with a lot of trepidation. Its complex. The shield if 1/4 by 1/4 of an inch, and that lion took a small brush, and absolute breathing control to do. So.. Here is my interpretation of the Black Knight. Your comments, and critique are greatly appreciated. Its the only feedback I get now since I no longer do the WIPs. Here is the Black Knight.

    Shensen - 60069

    Yes this is a Reaper Miniature by B. Rudolfi. I find it hysterical that I have painted another female in "Combat Attire"... I've been quietly working on her since I finished the last one. Again, I insist on working on these small mini's. So here is my interpretation of Shensen, I didn't bother looking at what other folks have done Hope you like what I have done !. Oh.. I forgot to mention, She is ONE INCH tall ! I really should post a photo of these next to a quarter ! Your comments/Criticism's are welcome, and always appreciated. So here is Shensen: .

    Oathsworn badger

    This is the first of the Oathsworn critters that I completed. (there are still two more waited on finishing) but the first was the badger. Apparently all of the badgers want to keep their baby blankets as battle trophies but I really love how the mint green cape came out. I also just love this mini. all sorts of little things on the armor and equipment: the damage and scars on the armor, the nicks and bangs on the club, and just the general texture of the critter. And the pose. I love the pose! Mike has done an absolutely incredible job capturing motion and action in all of his critters. these are bright to the point where the few non action poses actually seem to be relaxed. The same cannot be said for my state as I try to pry this mini off his base. The metal this mini was cast in was hard! I was eventually reduced to tin snips and a dremel tool to grind and tear the base off because I wanted to put him on a specific base. Which involved a new titanium drill bit to pin the little guy. He did lose a few toes in the process which had to be rebuilt but other than that I really like how he came out and I love the minis (and will probably add another one of these to my current KS order just because) Anyway, without further ado, here is the pictures. C&C is particularly appreciated here as I am still working with the fur to make it look realistic without defeating the work that Mike did on the fur sculpt. Enjoy!

    Cersei Lannister - DSM5005

    I've been working on Cersei for over two weeks. I decided to kick up my basing skills a notch, and so I selected this Tom Meirer Sculpt, and decided to give her a fitting base, and hone the painting skills a bit further. She is 25mm (one inch tall), and an incredible piece of art. I avoided the base she came with and dreamed up my own, and made it from scratch. I pulled out a couple of old skills, and built a balcony for her. I have totally enjoyed painting and basing her. As always your comments and criticism are welcome, and desired. Let me know what you think of Cersei Lannister. Jay

    03673: Wendigo

    Alright I did this for the Fall Exchange. Pictures are courtesy of Knarthex who received him. Mostly because my cameras hid until after I shipped the mini. (stupid cameras) Anyways here are his pics of the Wendigo I did... Heh. He was fun to paint up and I enjoyed it. He wanted a winter/fey theme and one that would work in Reign of Winter... Should I warn him this guy is actually an encounter at some point in the adventure...

    Frog Witch - DSM7921

    This miniature started out with a totally different color scheme and then took off on its own. She is far from the black robes that I originally thought she would have ! To say I had fun would be an understatement ! Your Comments and criticism are welcomed and greatly desired. Magda dropped down and landed at the agreed upon meet up point. She scanned the skies waiting for her friends to appear, and then to travel together to the witches gathering.

    DSM7921 Frog Witch

    Its the First day of Autumn, and Halloween is almost upon us. I have been very good about NOT painting another Froggy for quite some time now. My funny bone is in need of a tickly...SO.. Here is the Frog Witch NOT to be confunsed with a sandwitch however ! I intend to have a lot of fun painting her. I can see pink bloomers, purple socks, Brown Robes, and I'm going to just play with what type of frog she is color wise. The poison dart Frogs have a myriad of colors associated with them. So we shall see where I wander. Here is the Frog Witch Primed, and coated with brown liner. I went banana's removing mold lines, and I know I am going to find another one somewhere.

    77168: Battleguard Golem

    So I finally got around to painting my first bones mini! Decided I'd get this guy and paint him up like a battered old warforged, as I just love those tin cans. Can't say the material was much different than metal to paint after I primed him, just the weird sensation of him weighing nothing in my hand. His paint turned out a bit bluer than I'd envisioned, I wanted a hint more green in there for a more turquoise look, but I'm happy with how it turned out. Also my first time trying some OSL, I think I could have gone brighter on the shade, and slightly thinner in places (I was using around a 10:1 mix). I also thought his left arm looked a little barren, so he I gave him an integrated forearm crossbow that I scavenged from a friends bits box. I haven't done anything with the base as I intend to cut him off of it and replace it with a 25mm one, but I have something special in mind for it, and I'm now waiting on a piece for a couple of weeks. So he's done for now and I'm reasonably happy with him.
  18. This is a model I painted for someone as an anonymous gift. It should have gotten to him today, but I'll leave his forum name off just in case. This model was a lot of fun to paint and I only learned later that my model's armor and the painted version on Reaper's website (you know what I mean :)) both have purple armor. This is only the second time I've painted dark elf skin and its quite challenging for me as I often struggle to have good looking smooth skin tones on human models in general. If I hadn't given myself a hardstop time limit, I would have gone back and tried to shade and highlight the yellow on the armor. I don't think its garish, thanks to the blue cloak, but it could look better IMO. I'm extremely pleased with the blending of her ice crystal weapon "blades". I wasn't sure I could pull it off, but I think it turned out really nice, although the eye isn't immediately drawn to it. Please feel free to give any and all feedback, but I'm really keen to hear if folks think I should have gone with a darker yellow or another color entirely. Is there something I could have done better with the basing? The person I painted this for likes an online comic called Drowtales, which I also happen to like, though I'd not read it in at least two years due to losing all my links when my old computer died. But I went through the comic and found some armor and cloaks that I liked and tried to work them into model itself. Here's what the cloak in the comic looks like (sorry, no back picture): And here's the final model (I apologize for the random cat hair): Thank you all in advance for your feedback!
  19. Here is my interpretation of the Dwarven Fighter with Great Axe from Dark Sword Miniatures I absolutely adore painting these things. This one was an awful lot of fun and challenge. As always, your C/C are requested, and desired. Let me know what you think of what I have done with this guy. *********************** After days of walking Frerin Redbeard's grip around his Father's great axe tightened. Whoever knocked down the family's red hued Rune Stone would not live to see another day !
  20. Today (well technically yesterday, but since I haven't slept yet it still counts as today) I decided to take a break from my 54mm mini and paint something quick and easy. None of the Bones were speaking to me, but then I saw my unpainted Grenadier Females staring at me and remember that I had planned to paint the set this year. I grabbed the "thief-sling" basically at random and sat down to get to work. It would appear at first glance that she should be a relatively straightforward mini to paint, but there was a complication. This poor unfortunate woman was lacking a face. Sure she had a jawline, and cheekbones, and even a nose, but there was only the barest hint of where lips should be, no eyes to speak of, and to make matters worse there was even a casting defect going down from where her left eye should have been and onto her cheek. This and a few other defects were filled with brush on sealer and it was time to freehand some true 25mm eyes! Except that I didn't quite get enough sealer over the defect which made the freehand a bit off. The after painting sealing is a bit satin, which is fine for everything but the hair which lost all subtlety. To keep the theme from the previous ladies going I outfitted her in only the finest 1980 colors, and deliberately made a effort to use paints that I rarely grab off the shelf. This makes four out of ten taken painted and sealed. Maybe the other six will have their own paint days before the end of the year? My valiant attempt at freehanding eyes over a defect. And lastly, I realized that I've never taken a shot with a coin to show off how tiny the minis I'm painting are. Wow, she's smaller than the coin!
  21. After working on the Young Lady in Waiting with puppy in showoffs Forum, I decided I needed to do something larger and a dwarf looks like it fills the the need. I see horns on a helmet and I shudder (Norwegians tend to go nuts with that imagery), but since it is on a dwarf, I'll go with the flow. This is a detailed mini, lots of furs, metal, and very dynamic. I'm going to go for it. Oh, I've already designed a base for him in my head.. another challenge ! Here is what he looks like prior to priming, and lining. I intend to take my time on this.
  22. As a young Nobel Woman; Elena learned that there were few that she could trust. Here joy was extreme when she was given a puppy for her very own. If only that puppy could talk ! There are some things that are hard to resist, Puppy's, Kittens, and Tom Meirer 25mm miniatures. I'm drawn to them like a moth to the flame. I was gifted this miniature by a friend, and I have tortured myself forever by not painting her. I finally succumbed. Here is my vision of "The Young Lady In Waiting with Puppy. Your comments/Critiques are greatly desired. Leave me a message. ETA: corrected English spelling, not Norwegian accented English !

    DSM7429 Male Barbarian with Hammer

    I finished the Barbarian today (almost sad to see him mounted on his plinth). This is a magnificent sculpt! Challenging, but totally rewarding. Your color choices really provide you with an endless decision making, and challenging process. The miniature is also so dynamic that is it fun. It even convinced me to use "Green Stuff" for the first time ! As always; your comments, criticism are welcome, appreciated, and sought after. Leave me a note: Here is my concept of the Male Barbarian With Hammer:
  24. So, I am sitting here dry brushing the terrain pieces from DDS2, and the cd changer is playing Deep Purple 'Black Knight'. The 'House of Hair' with Dee Snyder just ended 30 minutes ago, and the radio was playing [redacted] so the CD player is loaded and on shuffle.... I listen mainly to metal music, doesn't mater if it's from the '60s or came out today, as long as it rocks! As my formative music years were the '80s, it is really no surprise. Good seats at a concert were $20, and nose bleeds were $10.... Try finding parking at a concert for that today! Some favorite bands, in no particular order: Deep Purple, Dio, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Twisted Sister, Michael Schenker, Yngvie Malmstein, Jimmy Hendrix, Skid Row, AC DC, Jethro Tull, (They did beat Metallica for a grammy.... ), Ufo, Scorpions, Rush, Yes, Triumph.... I also like some Classical Music, Strauss, Beethoven, Mozart, Copland, Holst, Wagner, being some favored composers.... Almost anything with a Sci-fi or fantasy theme and or lyrics will get at least a listen... So what is on your I-Pod, in your CD player, or in your vinyl collection? Or do you paint in SILENCE????? George
