  1. Made this for someones' birthday. :)
  2. 77315 Fire Demon

    He came out a little brighter than I intended, but I didn't want to just make him and his armor all black..so.
  3. So this is a mini that has been sitting on my half finished shelf for more than a year. She's an Endless Fantasy Tactics Summoner that I had gotten out of a miscast pile with a bunch of others at a con. The body of the mini was mostly fine, but she had a messed up hat. So somewhere along the way I decided that I would just put a warhammer torch bit on her head and make her a crazy fire witch. Then I base coated her, and promptly left her on a shelf collecting dust. Well I finally painted her.
  4. So. I tried painting some minis without WIPs and found myself having a hard time keeping track of what and how much I had done. So I'm back, although these may be sporadic and really slow to update. We'll see. Anyhow, after painting a lot of tiny figures for the January Bones Beauty Pageant, I decided to move in the opposite direction and tackle some of the big figures from Bones I to clear out room for Bones II. So I am painting dragons. Five of them, if you count the Frost Wyrm. Each one gets its own thread, though, since I don't know how I'm going to progress through them. I didn't know the names of the dragons when I decided what colors to make them. Since I'm painting five, to keep up interest I'm using a slightly different approach to each one. This one, at least for the moment, I am imagining as something warm and desert-like, gold with red undertones. When I looked at it I thought of brass or gold dragons, although I don't know if I'm going to actually attempt metallics on it. As you might have gathered, I improvise a lot when I am painting. If I were a writer I would be what they call a pantser. Anyhow, to make sure I didn't get all those unglued wings mixed up, the first painting session I made sure to put a wash on each dragon and its wings of a major color element I had planned for it. So after I primed everything with Reaper's Brown Liner, this one got a terracotta red wash of pure thinned-down Iron Oxide Red. The other dragons I'm painting concurrently are Deathsleet, Ebonwrath, the Shadow Dragon, and the Frost Wyrm.
  5. Hi, all. Apologies for the crappy pics; I've had a total breakdown on that front. Apologies for the crappy painting, too; but it's at least been fun. I just feel better knowing someone's witnessed the fact that I did it. Cleaning up for December 2014. First up is Jim Johnson's Vaaron, Fire Sorcerer. Pretty awesome mini, IMO. He was fun to paint. His summoning cauldron is my first pass at painting fire. I kept it pretty simple but nonetheless was pretty pleased. Thanks for looking!
  6. So I've been working on this guy for about two months now - I've bought a house and moved in there so that's why it has been taking so long. I tried doing a WIP on this fellow, but I lost so many of the "in progess" pictures there just wasn't any point. I'm going to set the circumstance before sharing the pictures. I'm playing a Goliath Monk in a 3.5 D&D game. I originally painted Uglunuk for my character - he's a poor match since he's clearly a fighter or barbarian, but he made a good substitute and I didn't feel like my customization skills were good enough. I did buy another one of the fig to customize at a later date. That later date came about last year. I did some pretty heavy customization - my Monk is armed with a kama (a 1 hand sickle, basically,) and has the "flaming fist" feat, so that led to what to do with the hands. I filed down some of the more conspicous armor, and customized the belt to look more like an ivory artifact belt my character wears. Here is the result: The first picture is before some touch-ups I did to the skin, but it shows off the kama nicer than the rest, so I decided to keep it. Anyway, this leads me to my question: I'm going to base him on a slotted circular base I got from Wyrd, it has a recessed area about 1" in diameter that you need to fill. How do you think I should base him? I'm not looking to do anything hugely complicated, but I'd be interested to see what people think. In particular, what sort of base do you think would provide a nice contrast or highlight to the colors of the figure? Right now we're doing a bunch of extra-planar elemental adventures, but I think more fire would be distracting. So I'd be interested in people's opinions. Also, I haven't seal-coated him yet, so if anyone has any comments please share... P.S. The pictures are friggin' huge, so feel free to click on them and see all the tiny flaws!
  7. I was photographing something else yesterday. The something else ended badly. I was documenting it. Anyway, the Fire Elemental was nearby and the lighting setup looked promising so I let the camera have a try even though the LFE is notoriously hard to photograph. The Raw Image My phone has a small app on it from Adobe, and it has a selection of preset "effects" filters it can apply. I tried several, saved a few that looked fiery. The Filter That Looked Like Lava A Kind of Spot Lighting? Similar to Above But Darker Hope these are at least fun to look at or maybe inspiration if someone is wanting to paint fire.
  8. Fire Elementals, Reaper Bones

    I speedpainted these but I was kind of happy with how the medium fire elemental came out so I thought I’d post them here as well. Flaming Sphere Large Fire Elemental Wall of Fire Medium Fire Elemental (linked for possible nudity): Picture 1, Picture 2, Picture 3
  9. Cake Toppers with fantasy weapons

    Here is a group of cake toppers that I did. I think the theme this time is fantasy weaponry. None of these brides and grooms decided to use the standard Shotgun or Chainsaws that are so useful to zombie survivors, and instead favored magic bows, spells, bastard swords and shields.
  10. I bought Tamiya clear yellow, green and orange and played around with the female bones fire elemental (77083) and the bones grave wraith (77097). The yellow/orange hardly shows at all on the red bones, but the green Tamiya clear turned out ok on the green wraith.

  11. I rebased the lesser elementals (Reaper 2538) that I painted up several years ago. While doing so, I also gave them a touch-up paint job, the fire elemental got his flames reversed in several places for instance.

  12. http://wappellious.blogspot.com/2014/11/turning-water-into-fire.html
  13. Somewhere someone on this board used the clear tamiya paints on their translucent bones, I can't remember who it was offhand, and I tried it and have painted all of my translucent bones with this paint first. I though I'd show the difference that this paint makes on these figures by painting two fire elementals. I slathered Tamiya clear red onto both figures generously. Unlike most basecoats, a thick coat won't obscure details like regular paint would, it just take longer to dry. A word of warning, while this paint does clean up with water, it is still a solvent based paint and does have an odor, take precautions and use in a ventilated area, also don't use your good Kolinsky brushes as this paint WILL STAIN brushes (and Jeans). I used a synthetic flat bristle brush size 2 for the basecoating. So, on to the Pictoral commentary... This is the Medium Fire Elemental right out of the package. And this is the same elemental after being painted in Tamiya Clear red paint. Bear in mind that this paint is dried when the picture was taken. Here is a (Hopefully) better side by side comparison with the Large fire elemental. And here is just the large fire elemental after being painted. I will be adding other fire colors as I go, I've already started adding some yellow details to the large Elemental and I'll post and update as I get each color added. hopefully this helps some of you who are looking to intensify the coloring of your translucent bones. This also works with the Green translucents and tamiya clear green.
  14. Bones Deathsleet [Red]

    This is my old senile red dragon, Hezikiabadadia [who should be a lot larger than this, but we don't have the really big Bones dragons available yet] I started him on a small base, but he refused to stand up so I built a bigger base around the small one. His big base is unfinished but I don't know when I'll get around to finishing it
  15. 77109: Fire Dragon

    Red fire dragon painted up as my gluttonous, arrogant, fat Gorevander
  16. Small fire elemental

    I'm kinda proud of this one. It's the small fire elemental from 77196: Familiars 2. This was my first attempt at fire effects and my first attempt at basing. I think both turned out pretty good.
  17. and my latest 'not a failure,so it must be a success' As always, feedback is much appreciated. You see anything you think I can improve on, please let me know.
  18. I painted up Reaper's 50212 Incredible Woman to resemble my husband's fire controller from the now defunct online game, City of Heroes. The fire critter is from Wyrd Flame base accessories set. He really likes it, so mission accomplished . As you can see from the reference pictures, she got a slight costume change...
  19. Starting this up because I think I may start attempting some work on them this weekend..
  20. Hi folks, I recently picked up Erin of the Flame and I was considering painting the two balls of fire he holds in contrasting colors - one traditional red/yellow/orange fire and one as blue fire. What colors and techniques will make blue fire look good? Hell, even tips on making regular fire look awesome would be helpful - I'm a bit of a noob still. Thanks!
  21. So, I continue to plug along, trying new things. I think this is my sixth mini up here, if you count the group of Astral Reavers as three. I was trying for fire effects and deep shadows. Not sure how successful I was, although it looks nice on the table. I find that I really, really, hate to base. The thought of tweezing tiny clumps of green hairs into glue to make grass fills me with dread. But I can paint. So far I have just been painting my bases, which in this case is a one-inch fender washer lightly sanded for grip.
