  1. 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:
  3. I started prepping this piece last week. I wanted something having to deal with fur (not that comfortable with it yet). So I decided that I would work on this one. Looks simple, (it is FAR from that). The undulations and the details of this sculpt are very very complex. I am just now laying in layers of color, and I haven't even started to build up the color that I want. I already have planned out the basing on this one, so I will probably do the base while I am painting. Love the dynamics on this mini ! Here is where I am at. C/C are always welcome !
  4. Again. Not doing anything super spiffy. Another member of my army. Likely will be in a group shot at the end. I did him as a black and purple with a rifle. The blue is more his choice to make him look fiercer as he has scars around both wings.

    Ogress With Runt - DSM-2205

    This Ogress has a motto: There is nothing wrong with being an Ogre, Just in dressing and looking Poorly ! Poor thing has broken one Mirror Already ! This was a lot of fun to do. As you can tell, I had a blast making her as outrageous as I possibly could. Its hard to paint a portrait on 1/4 by 1/4 inch oval !! Here is Venus d' Ogress and her Runt. C and C are always welcome, and solicited. Painting these mini's is a solitary endeavor, I really love hearing back from all of you. You aren't going to hurt my feelings with a negative, but you will make me jump on the chair with a Like click ! Jay

    DSM-2205 Ogress with Runt

    I was given this mini by a friend, and have decided it is time to get it painted. I have discovered what many of you have hinted at...PREP time takes longer the more experienced you are. I too roll my eyes at mold lines, mutter under my breath about slag, and flashings left on the mini ! She has been washed, and primed, and if I ever stop giggling, she will get painted. My thinking is "An Ogress that thinks she is Marilynn Monroe", That thought alone makes me laugh. Anywho; here is a photo of the lovely lady !

    03581: Kieron, Ranger

    Hello, Below is my rendition of Kieron, Ranger. I've had this sculpt for a while now and finally ordered it. He only took about three hours from start to finish. Questions, comments, criticisms, and critiques are greatly appreciated. If you are interested in seeing more of my stuff here is a link to my miniature and terrain blog. http://danceswithhipposterrain.blogspot.com/ Stop by and leave some comments!
  8. I painted a couple figures for my campaign while I was finishing off my lion and cookpot. The bard is 02186: Alfred Redlute by Sandra Garrity. The party bard is human, and plays him as a tattooed rockstar. He even has tattoo artist as his downtime profession. Of course I have no freehand skills, so instead I gave him a red band/mask to give the general feel of a tattooed character. We had discussed painting his face like a member of Kiss, but again, no freehand ability. It isn't obvious from the pictures, but I did actually paint his eyes and pupils, and the right side at least turned out well. The bard was miscast, but fortunately the seam isn't too visible, other than along the blade and the left side of his face. The facepaint helps downplay that, so it doesn't look too bad. I wish now I had gone with a different colour for the trousers, the colour is too close to the gold trim on his tunic. Also, I should have dabbed some gem colours onto his necklace, it doesn't really stand out next to the flesh and leather strap. It's a really nice figure, I wish I could do it proper justice, but it looks good on the table. I also skimped on the base because I was rushed. The mini is glued to a Dungeon Crawler base, I got their vampire bundle with their last kickstarter and got a ton of them. They are great, he can connect a torch or driftglobe, so we don't lose track of who is carrying a light. Although, as currently the only human in the party, it's always him. Still, it is handy for me as the DM to adjudicate surprise. His hair is brown with some reddish highlights, even though it seems almost grey in the pictures. The gnoll is the bones figure, 77012: Gnoll Warrior by Tre Manor. Ironic note, I hadn't seen Adrift's version until looking up the mini for this post, so I didn't know how closely the clothing colour scheme is. His is more orange vs. my gold, but still, very similar. I tried to capture the spotted look of hyenas, they have very random seeming spots so I tried hard to not repeat myself. It was definitely hit and miss, some spotting looks great, others not so much. I decided not to paint his eyes, hyena eyes are basically black anyway. I also tinted his ears pink like the inside of a dog or cat's ears. I like how it turned out, but it's not very hyena-like. His base colour is 09061 linen white, if I had more time I could have darkened up a few areas since hyenas aren't monochromatic, but there's a small enough area of hide showing that it doesn't look too bad. For some reason the brush on sealer stripped the paint in a few spots. Along the front straps and the back of his skirt are the most obvious spots, though it came off in a few areas. Maybe I didn't let it dry long enough. Hopefully I'll get back to it and touch up those areas. I like the colour I wound up with for his base. Just for fun I painted it with 09670 Pumpkin Orange I got as a promo colour with an order last year. It is a fantastic pumpkin colour, but was too bright so I mixed it with pure black and washed it over top. It ended up with an almost volcanic look, something I want to play around with in the future.

    50200 Bobbi Jo, Redneck Princess

    Again with the theme of " 'Murica" for July, I tried to go as about cliche as possible, and actually had a bit of fun with the freehand. The gold freehand on the boots fell flat. And I have determined I have a ....disagreement with tanned skin, but otherwise I'm fairly pleased with conveying the absolute "redneck" nature of the figure, albeit unsure if i should put her in the Inspiration Gallery...I might need to do something because that Right knee (figure's right) doesn't have that dark mark in hand, just a weird trick of the photo, I think...

    Male Warrior with B Sword - DSM-7416

    I think if you just look at this Miniature, you will know I was having a fantastic time. This provided lots of experience in cleaning (nasty mold line filing), and ran me through the gauntlet of any skills I have. I used some freehand painting on shield; and played with black and white photos working the shadows. Highlighting was a hoot ! The opportunity to take this figure in a thousand different directions is amazing. Needless to say, I have totally enjoyed this Miniature. I hope the rest that I have to do prove to be as entertaining. As always, your comments and critiques are appreciated, and requested. Here is what I have done with the Minature:
  11. I'm doing something a little different. Rather than do a WIP, I'm kinda doing an "Okay this is what I am up to". I'll post things to this "WIP" as I move along. Gets me away from the "do some work, take photos, edit photos, crop photos, post photos syndrome. I need to focus on just painting for a bit. So, here is the mini almost all base painted. I'm planning on some freehand on that shield. He's also painted in old bronze for the armor.

    King Richard The Lion -DSM-7999

    This has been a total blast to paint. Besides being very whimsical, it is a challenging piece of great sculpting. You can chase yourself around quite a bit on this one. The biggest challenge is the armor, and painting all the details of it. This will exercise your brush control ! When it came to basing him, I did all sorts of things with cork, and wood, and finally I decided that Less IS more in this case. I want to draw emphasis to the figure, not take away from it. So I have used a simple Tung Oil stained base. As always, your comments and criticism are welcomed and sought after. Please leave me a note! Jay
  13. I've been working on the 25mm miniatures for the last month, and I decided I needed some play time. SO, I saw King Richard The Lion and thought it would be a fun project ! I did NOT notice the tail when I decided to get him, and now I am roaring about it standing in the rear of the sculpt so tall and proud. He is primed and I just gave him a black ink wash. I want all those details to be staring at me. Off we go ! Here are some photos of him as I begin. Jay

    Long Shot Loim - Red Box Games.

    This is the last of the Brigand Series by Tre Manor; Long Shot Loim served under the Duke of Norfolk, He wasn't always a scoundrel, nor a brigand. Ever since that fight in the tavern, he had been on the run. He didn't relish the thought of having another personal confrontation, so he used his other skill. He was lethal with a bow, and it kept him far enough away from his target to hear nothing. He always laid a sword at his feet, you never know if an emergency were to occur. He was smart enough to always give himself a back up. Comments and Critiques are always appreciated, and desired. I really do appreciate feed back. Jay I have added two photos of the trio of Brigands to the photo set. So here is Smarty Sean, DIrk the Ne'r Do Well, and Long Shot Loim together. Should have done that in the beginning. Here they are:

    RBG-0132 Long Shot Loim

    Back into the fray again with another of Tre's miniatures. This one has some interesting texture going on in the doublet. I've primed him, did some of my standard brown liner in dark areas. I gave him a green hood for right now, it might change. Gave him a simple face for the moment. Just base coating. Beginning getting my feel of the miniature, and deciding what I want to do with him. So here is the last of the brigands, Long Shot Loim.
  16. My exchange partner this time around was Teskeria. She requested unicorns, pegasus, dragons, alicorns, mages, rogues, or swordmasters. I was fresh out of unicorns and pegasus, and I was pretty sure I didn't have any alicorns but I looked up what they were just to be sure. While I did have some PC characters from the Bones kickstarters, they are pretty ubiquitous around the forum and I didn't want to give away something my partner already had. What about a mount you say? Well as it happens Reaper does in fact make one. Barros & Tempest actually comes with a choice of three different riders. There is a fully armored knight with a lance, a male knight with a lance, and a female with a sword. My idea was to have it leaping off of a cliff face or something, but having used cork instead of carving a wooden block (which I thought of after the fact) I was worried that the cork might tear under the weight of the mini and set it back from the edge a little bit. The rock serves two purposes: it will give Teskeria something to grab onto during play and it elevates the mini high enough that the wings should be able to clear any "medium size" creature on the table. To give you an idea of the wingspan, that is a 3" reaper base that the mini is nailed to. No really. Nails. She can take a picture if you don't believe me.

    Smarty Sean - RBG-0129

    A wonderful friend gave me Smarty Sean; so I decided to paint him up. He's been washed and glued to his base. Next will be to prime, and brown line. Have to true up his lance before the priming though ! He is part of a threesome group of brigands, that live in the forest ! Here are a couple of photo's before we are off to the races. Oh, I attached a third photo showing the size of this mini. after I primed and washed him. Yes, that's a US Quarter.

    Smarty Sean -Red Box Games-0129

    Another of my beloved sculpts by Tre Manor. Smarty Sean is a hoot to paint. One of those one inch mini's that can drive you banana's; but a great sense of accomplishment when you get him done. As I always remark, doing high quality challenging sculpts make you grow as a painter. These are sculpts to grow by. Critiques/comments are greatly desired and solicited. So leave me a note please ! Here are some photos of Smarty Sean. I include the black and white to show how big he is visually.

    Orc Rider Display

    This is my first time posting stuff online. I am still fairly new to the miniatures hobby, but I dove in head first and started collecting and grabbing up all the minis (old and new that I could). This is my first big non-gaming use piece. I am still learning different terrain techniques, but I thought it would be a fun use of some old Kings of War white metal minis that I didn't plan to use for gaming. Sorry I am not a great photographer. I am sure that is something I will get used to as I photograph more of my projects. details, details (mostly done with repoduced bitz)

    Noble Oak Guard Autumn, TBM

    I tend to use Tom Meirer's sculpts as teaching lessons for myself. They are intricate, and sophisticated. They can be very challenging. I chose to make it more difficult with my color choices. Orange, Bronze, and a white horse. This is a learning miniature for me. At one inch tall, this will freak you out, in one way or another. Toss in white, and you have a regal battle going on. Loved the challenge, and learned a lot. Oh, I always enjoy your comments, and/or criticisms ! Leave me a note ! Jay
  21. While I am serious about painting this miniature (and am enjoying the challenge), I am also using the WIP for a secondary purpose. I was given a gift of a cellphone that takes photos of an extremely better "pixelation" than my canon camera. So as I paint this miniature, I am learning to take photos at the same time. So that said... Here are a few photos of the Mounted Noble Oak Guard. at 25mm it can be vexing, so I decided that I would paint a white horse (of course), and then use orange (gotta keep robinh happy), and I'm doing tough color combo's. (Gotta make it fun). Here are some photos:

    RBG -Dirk The Ne'r Do Well

    Dirk wasn't very good at a lot of things, Especially gambling, and wenching; though he found out early that he was very good at getting Drunk, and swilling wine. Here he is trying to find his way back from another night of loosing, but he walked away with a treasure, a half jug of wine. He even managed to hold onto it as he weaved and tripped his way back to camp ! Here is Dirk The Ne'r Do Well. Oh, comments and/or critiques are always welcomed, and greatly appreciated !
  23. Knight of the Flowers has been quite the trip ! I don't think I have ever used a 0000 brush as much as I have on all the little bits on here. Nor has so many details been thrown at me at one time. This is my first free hand piece of work. TWO of them. Lining on cloak, and painting the flower on the shield. I'm sure I will get better at it. I chose this wonderful sculpt because of its challenge, and for its beauty. I hope I did it some justice. I tried to make it mine, hopefully I managed to impart my vision of it. So here are some photos of Ser Loras Tyrell. Comments and critiques are solicited, welcomed and greatly appreciated.

    01407: Dana Murphy

    WIP thread here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/56226-01407-dana-murphy/ Dana Murphy is my first attempt at a larger scale miniature. She was a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. I really wanted to get her done for ReaperCon, so I had to rush a bit at the end. I made quite a few mistakes, but I also learned a lot about painting at a larger scale. I hope to paint up at least one at this scale before next year's ReaperCon. Convenient, since I bought two candidates at the con itself. Dana, including pedestal Closer-ups of Dana
  25. I have gotten rather hooked on Tre Manor's sculpts. I was given "Dirk the Ne'r Do Well", and I have been planning on painting him. Well, He has been washed, primed, and has 16 coats of paint on him so far. The two colors are not the easy ones, but I love how they clash, I will be tossing some red in there also to make a good rumble. I wasn't planning on making a WIP, but then I thought, Jay, you're using Orange and robinh will be delighted. So...I'll do the WIP. Here are three photos of Hapless Dirk.
