  1. This is the third of the five Bones pirates I did as a quick paint. Since pirates are evil and I already had a drow pirate, I painted him up as a duergar. Underdark pirates FTW.
  2. I did quick paints of the five Bones pirates. This is the second, Barnabus Frost. I pictured him as one of those red-faced redheads, a little WC Fields.
  3. I did some quick paint jobs on the Bones set of pirates. Here's the first, which I painted as a drow for game purposes.
  4. The fifth and last of the five Bones pirates and an experiment in quick painting.
  5. These are two octopus-headed psychic baddies, one Reaper's "03135: B'thuhl, Bathalian Pirate", and one a classic "Brain Slayer" from Ral Partha, showing a little of the scale creep of the last twenty years. Their mauve-green complexion comes from mixing Phthalo Green with Quinacricone Magenta. Adjusting the mix can give you anything from purple to a surprising deep blue to blue-green. Privately I think of them as "Fred" and "Charley." EDIT: Oh fruitbats, I forgot to reduce the size of one of the photos. Is that going to be a problem, mods? (And weird, editing added all sorts of annoying font tags which I had to remove manually.)
  6. Pingo

    Armorcast Steam Buddha

    Sculpted by Shawn Lux from a design by Matt Beaumont. I assembled and painted this as a 21st wedding anniversary gift for my husband. Here's a scale shot with Reaper's 03135: B'thuhl, Bathalian Pirate. It's pretty big. It came with a resin head and body, separate hands, a puff of "steam" (which I left out as too difficult for me to pin), and the large smokestack; and metal ears, the small smokestack, and the whistle. This graffiti says "Om mani padme hum" in Sanskrit: I used just two metallic colors, a pure silver and a pure gold, layered with a lot of colors to suggest reflections, grime, rust, and patinas. The base is painted a sort of orchid purple, and those are reflections of it painted on the hands. There is a deluxe version of this figure with a steampunk yin-yang "lotus", but I got the basic version and made my own base from a sort of wooden doily from the craft store which resembled both a lotus and a gear. Comments are appreciated.
  7. As you might gather, I am really slow at this. Also my miniatures painting things have been stowed away for the long holiday season. But I have finally finished my first Bones mini, 77188 "Sea Lion", sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I have been intrigued by underwater photography, particularly in shallow clear water under bright sunshine where the lensing effects of the wave ridges create constantly changing lines of glowing pale green on whatever swims under them. So I tried a bit of that on this mini. I had a difficult time capturing the colors accurately in the photographs. Some of them are in front of a neutral gray card, and some in front of crumpled "Tiffany blue" tissue paper, which I thought might give a nice oceanic feel but may have too much reduced the color contrast.
  8. Lathula, Female Barbarian, Reaper 03019, sculpted by Ben Siens, painted by me. I like half-orcs. They always seem to be painted with black hair, but I figured since orcs don't have hair it would be the human parent who provides the hair color. So why not a redhead? I didn't paint her hair shiny, though, because it kind of looks greased up and pulled back. I used this figure in my tutorial on how to paint illusionistic grass.
  9. Designed by Larry Elmore, sculpted by Jeff Grace. I spotted it in a game store and thought it was way more interesting than the pure eye candy mermaids. I was concerned about the flimsiness of the join between arms and arm sockets, so I pinned them. With very. Tiny. Wires. The arms were mighty thin to begin with. I may have left the pinning wires a bit long, making her upper arms a bit long. I deliberately didn't give her pupils. I wanted her to have preternatural, milky nonhuman eyes. I figured mermaids would not have easy access to metal, so I painted her armor and weapon as if they were made of coral, ivory, and bone. In the fourth picture for some reason the colors came out very bright, but the other pictures are more true to life.
  10. 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.
  11. Hmm, I was wondering just how many posts that Pingo and Buglips are mentioned in before they actually post in it?
  12. Spinward Bound's thread, http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/47632-wood-elves/?hl=%2Bthunderbolt+%2Bmountain , alerted me to the excellent Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures, sculpted by Tom Meier, legendary founder of Ral Partha. These are jaw droppingly beautiful (if a little small by modern standards). I have started working on the Wood Elf Lord and Lady in Traveling Clothes. My usual method is to prime the minis with white acrylic paint, then wash with thinned down burnt umber to be able to see the details. On the male figure (on the right), his entire outfit except for his boots and cape are still on the umber wash. They are really tiny, especially their faces. Here's the lady elf next to Reaper 03566 (also a WiP) for comparison: And here are close ups of those tiny, tiny faces:

    02765: Astral Reavers (3)

    This is my first ever post in Show Off. When I came back to the hobby last August after a 20-year hiatus, I promptly painted up some minis and was appalled at my level of incompetence. I've been a little gun shy since, dispensing plenty of artistic advice but not really putting my money where my mouth is. Anyway, after absorbing a lot of good advice from y'all and half-finishing several figures (I will get back to the Bones Ogre, buglips, honest.), I finally have finished some, bases and all. These are Reaper's set of 02765: Astral Reavers, which I have painted up as Githyanki for a Dungeons and Dragons campaign I'm currently playing in. Feedback would be most appreciated.
  14. Here's one more of the astral reaver figures (see http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/48284-02765-astral-reavers-3/ ), this one a monk which I have painted up as a Githzerai for D&D.
