    Wizkids Ghouls

    Some happy little flesh eaters. Some of the easier Wizkids figures I've painted, although I'm not sure why their tongues are hanging out. As far as I know ghouls sweat... Used the Vampiric Skin triad on them, it fits them well but makes them photo resistant. To them it's a buffet...

    WIP - Wizkids Monk

    Hi ! Started one of the monk fihure from wizkids ( couple in stock so I need to get them done ^^ ), so it may be a good place to make my first wip thread ... tried a zenhital priming, using tamiya spray primer and Mr hooby ( that the more easy and cheaper to get in japan ). from there I just apply what I am considering as my base dark tone..well hehe no garanty here I am exploring stuff too :) where I am at for now... i did not too much care about detials for now..let see how this goes xd

    Human male fighters - D&D Wizkids

    Hi guys, continuing my journey in painting :) This time , wizkids again, human male fighters. I got a bit of a hard time with those. super small but lot of tiny details xd, also male the mistake to not prime them and I should have made them black or at least zenhital stuff anyway. last I have just realize that when coating the base some paint get on one of the sword haha..well , will improve for next one !
  4. This is one of two figures in the Dungeons & Dragons Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures line Male Tiefling Mage. It was one of the first minis I picked up when I was learning to paint. I wasn't sure how I wanted to paint it, so it's been sitting in my inventory for a few months. Now that I have some experience with lighting effects, I decided to go over the top with the color.

    Ghouls D&D Nolzur's Wizkids

    Hi everybody, while waiting for some new Reaper bone's mini I ordered .. I am doing couple of those Wizkids I grabbed recently, and finished for now the ghouls one. Here the pics :)

    Wizkids Dwarf Priest Speedpaint

    Somebody asked me to paint this dwarf so he got an overambitious OSL speed paint. I am not a fan of the pre-primed minis. This one had a bunch of plastic shavings under the primer in addition to the usual mold lines. I did learn that the vallejo model colour transparent paints go really well over the transparent pieces on these minis. I used transparent yellow for the basecoat. I added white highlights in a couple of spots to give it some definition. I used layers of transparent orange and then red to define some of the inner edges of the discs.
  7. Meh. I'm almost embarrassed by my own haphazardness. But I reckon I should dig out those donkeys from Bones 3 now.

    Wizkids' Mimics

    I couldn't pass on having a good mimic for our campaigns, or in this case 2. I also want to grab the bed mockingbeast from Reaper and just make a whole house full of living evil... mwahahahah
  9. Kelcore

    Human Rangers

    This is an interesting pair. One is fairly typical for a Ranger charater, the other, a bit more imaginative than usual.
  10. Picked this up for a decent price. I used Tamiya clear inks to do the bottles.
  11. Kelcore

    More Dwarves

    Finished up these two ladies yesterday. And with their completion, I'm now officially out of Nolzur's Dwarves to paint until I go get more.
  12. A quick paintjob on one of the D&D Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures line, the Umber Hulk! My somewhat local gaming store finally had them back in stock...still no luck on the elusive Beholder!

    Dwarf Fighter

    If I like a D&D race as much as I like Dragonborn, it's Dwarves. I especially like Dwarf minis that kinda break the "huge axe/hammer weilding, armored to the gills, not very mobile" Dwarf mold. This Dwarf lady seems to fit that preference quite well. It was also a pretty jarring mini to paint after completing the comparatively huge Blightfang.
  14. Logos

    Behemot Beholder

    I picked up the Behold from Wizkids and I really like it. Especially for the price. I chucked out the translucent cover for the eye as that was junk and I used Tamiya Translucent inks for the energy blasts. I think it turned out pretty good.
  15. Just a few figures from the latest wave of Wizkid's Dungeons & Dragons: Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures line. I think the line has improved a lot. For whatever reason, my phone didn't want to focus on the thin Dragonborn faces. The only non-Dragonborn in the crew, a "Female Dwarf Barbarian". She seems a bit heavily armored for that role to me, but I was impressed with her design from the first render preview.
  16. This is the wagon/cart from Nolzur's marvelous miniatures, by Wizkids. Nothing special, just a quick tabletop paint job.
  17. Well, I'm not actually painting anything at work today...because I'm not going to work today. Suffice to say, we tried a new Chinese restaurant the other day, and it has not gone well. BUT! I posted a teaser in my last Lunch Sessions thread, and now I can go ahead and start this one. Prep work is done, so when I do get back into the office I can actually start laying paint. Here's what's going on this time around: Privateer Press has just started their Minicrate program, a subscription-based monthly "crate" of, well, miniatures. They are all special edition minis available only through the crate subscription. When I saw the first mini they planned to release, I almost got a subscription before realizing I probably wouldn't care overmuch about most of the minis involved past the first...we'll see if I regret that decision later, but the good news is: @chaosscorpion did subscribe, and was willing to work out a trade for the Swamp Siren in exchange for a warlock for his fledgling Trollbloods army. (if you care to see the mini in question, @Ghool just posted a really lovely painted version) Chaosscorpion was good enough to send the Swamp Siren over already, so I have her waiting for the day I paint her up...I have plans to do a resin-water base for her eventually. And I have procured and prepped Borka Kegslayer: I do have one specific instruction for this fella: Tartan! Chaosscorpion also provided a specific family tartan for me to replicate: Now, I've done a good bit of freehand, and a fair number of stripes, but never any actual plaid. So I decided I'd get some practice in first, which is where this preview pic comes in: This is the backside of one of the new Wizkids Pathfinder unpainted line, from the "Merchants" set. By way of a quick review, these are cheap and nicely detailed. They are pre-prepped and pre-primed, and I was impressed with both the lack of mold lines (still a few, but nothing egregious. For NPCs or townsfolk I'm not too worried) and the complete coverage of the primer. I was surprised to find the primer was every bit as hydrophobic as bare Bonesium, but eventually I got a basecoat down. I'm planning to paint her dress in plaid, using the Aitken tartan: I chose this tartan because it has roughly the same pattern as Chaosscorpion's, although in different colors. It's likely I'm overthinking the process, but I want to be as accurate as I can when I get to the plaid on Borka. So that's where I am at this point. I likely won't do any further painting until Wednesday (there's an office Halloween thing tomorrow), but I've got a bit of a start!
  18. So I decided to at least try to not nitpick something. This is the fastest I have ever painted an item. It took prpbably 30mins - 1hr, mostly due to paint drying before a wash. Paint was determined by "fits purpose and is in reach without seeking". Not my best by far, but it is an achievement for me to NOT nitpick things!
  19. Lord of the Dish Pit

    WizKids Ghosts

    I used the same combo of copper verdigris wash and maggot white on these. For some reason any pictures I tried to take of other angles didn't come out well. Perhaps they're shy.
  20. Lord of the Dish Pit

    WizKids Zombies

    I refer to these two as "Mullet" and "Bub". I used Bronzed Skin with a wash of Druchii Violet highlighted with Bronzed Highlight which I really liked the results of. Bub's clothing was Vallejo German Field Grey and Luftwafe Uniform WW2, as I hadn't used those for anything yet and wanted to try them out. I discovered that after putting the Vallejo Matt Varnish on them that what once was dull is now glossy.

    Lidless Eye Hobbies: Nolzur's Beasts

    I've been testing out the new WizKids ready to paints. It was just the simple beasts for now, but I wasn't too impressed with the PC sculpts. I'm hoping they improve the QC for the next wave, there's some cool designs coming. The pack: The Displacer Beast: The Blink Dog:
  22. So even though I haven't been W.I.P.ping, I have been painting here and there.... This is the WizKids Dreadlock Troll, that I decided to paint as an Ice Troll for our current Frostgrave Campaign.... He has various pale greys and off whites, then very dilute GW Blue ink Glazed on the skin, GW Snakebite Leather on his loin cloth, and SC75 SS Camo Shadow and SC75 Field Grey 50% on his hair.... Thanks for looking! The Mojo May Return....

    Troll from WizKids Nolzur's

    Both pictures are of the same mini, but I actually did two of these at once for practice. Pretty pleased with the results outside of a few stark transitions, may go back and touch it up and try and add more depth to the hair.
  24. One of MrBoot's coworkers found out that I painted minis (apparently my husband has been, ah, talking about my skills at work ), and wanted to know if I would be willing to take a commission for his player character. He provided the figure, a Wizkids male elf sorcerer, with a neat translucent fireball spell effect surrounding one hand, as well as his character's background and some details he'd like. I asked some clarifying questions about color scheme and the base and such, as well as explained generally how much different paint job qualities would be. He opted for my "deluxe" level, which includes freehand details and a nice base, since he expects this character to stick around for awhile. His character is a half-gold dragon pyromancer, with "subtle patches of gold scales on his skin" and "gold eyes with red flecks" (I could not manage the red flecks, but did manage to get a wee bit of gold in there), as well as a "cloak with a subtle dragon scale pattern" (my suggestion to him, since he wasn't sure what he wanted on the cloak). I found this mini both a lot of fun and terribly frustrating to paint; the details were muddy or missing in some places while being oddly sharp in others, and trying to work around the cloak and staff were at times irritating. Also, I don't know what kind of plastic the thing's made out of, but it half-murdered my hand trying to remove the integrated base so I could re-base it. But I eventually finished it, and I have to say I'm really quite happy with how it turned out! Especially the fire, I took a chance on doing a couple ink glazes/washes to preserve the translucency, and it worked out exactly like I'd hoped it would! The base is from Secret Weapon Miniatures. Anyways, enough wordy stuff, here's the pictures! The lighting is darker in this one because I was trying to capture the proper color of the cloak. It's slightly more orange in person, and not quite as bright. The patch of scales on the back of his hand is visible here (I used metallic paint so it's actually shiny). And here's some close-ups of his face; you can see the shiny patch of scales on his cheek more clearly here, as well as the dot of gold in his eye. Colors used: (this is mostly for my own records) Brown liner P3 Red ink P3 Yellow ink Dragon Bronze (so shiny!) Mahogany brown Chestnut brown Ginger cookie Tanned leather Oiled leather Leather brown Spattered crimson Big top red Heraldic red Leather white Solid white Stone grey Powderburn brown Golden shadow Palomino gold Sun yellow New things I tried on this piece: *Eyebrows - those things were stupidly hard to get right, I ended up redoing them like 4 times *Freehand - I kinda just...figured out the scale pattern as I went. It's not great, but not as terrible as my usual attempts at freehand, so I'm okay with it. I'm surprised it turned out as well as it did, given that I was annoyingly shaky when I was trying it, but I was down to the wire and didn't have time to wait until I was steadier *Painting a translucent surface - I made a thin wash/glaze with P3 ink, Brush-on sealer, wash medium, and a little water. I wish I'd written down the proportions of each I used, since the resulting mixture worked great! He was SO happy with it when MrBoot gave it to him today that he paid me extra! Which was quite nice, since after I was a good part of the way through painting it I realized I had rather undercharged him for the level of detail he'd requested (I'd charged $35, thinking I'd have it done in about 7 hours), and I actually ended up giving him what I would consider a $50 paint job anyways. So overall, for my second commission, it was a very positive experience! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  25. Cleaned up my table today! Granted it's not spotless cause if it was I couldn't find anything..... Even more more exciting I painted a mini!! It's been awhile, as early Febuary was my last brush to mini attempt. Of course that attempt is now just sitting on my table saying "Hey when are you gonna paint me, hmmmm??" Anyways I'm gonna attempt to put up a WiP for this one as well. I'm not exactly sure how far I'll go with his WiP as I'm bad at updating things like WiPs & such. I forgot to take a pic of the raw mini but this is the other one in that pack of 2 & it's exactly the same (besides the pose of course) as the one I'm painting up: Clear plastic with a primered base I wanted to take advantage of the clearness of the plastic so I thought might as well use Tamiya Clear paints on them. Problem was my jar of Clear Yellow was goopy, ie old. So in the trash it went & I ordered anther jar from the local hobby shop. That was a few weeks ago...Anyways after I did a semi-clean up of the workbench I proceeded to just apply the Clear Yellow onto the mini: & to see how it looks under a light, in this case a Ott-Light: I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with this critter but I'd like to try & make it like the Advanced Hellhound pre-paint mini: (yes the one I'm painting has a spiked color as well, I just painted over it). Hoping this mini jumpstarts the mini-painting that I need to do for ReaperCon this year!!
