  1. Hi! I'm brand new to the hobby and stumbled across the forums, so I thought I'd share my first WIP photos. I started playing in my first DnD campaign in December and the other players painted their own player character minis, which made me want one of my own (and one for my husband, who also plays in the same campaign.) I snagged the two LTPKs then started watching all the videos I could find on mini painting. I have no background in art/painting so it has been refreshing to give it a shot! However I am also in the rabbit hole now of wanting all the colors, basing supplies, tools.... lol. The minis in this kit are: 77018 Skeleton Archer 77042 Orc Marauder 77148 Mangu Timur I pretty much followed the book for how to paint the skeleton archer. The main differences being that I ordered the kit of Citadel washes after seeing so much praise for them, and I used a few slightly different paint shades (like dragon bronze for the metal bits instead of blade steel.) I still need to base him (cover that mold line between his feet!) but otherwise I'm pretty happy with him for being my first mini - he could use some weathering and higher contrast, but I sealed him before learning about weathering and the benefits of exaggerated contrast. My current WIP is the orc. I still have to do some highlighting passes because I don't think I've got enough contrast in the skin yet. I need to highlight the metal as well (haven't done that yet.) I'd like to attempt some weathering on the leather to make it look more worn, and try my hand at rust on the metal bits. I'm pretty happy with how my attempt at making the shield look wooden turned out (thanks YouTube!) I also found an oval base I might try to base him on since it fits his wide pose, but he'll be pretty big for using on a standard tabletop grid. Haven't touched the Mangu Timur model yet! I also need to get a better setup for photos, I was having trouble getting decent shots of these guys. I appreciate your thoughts on my work so far, thank you! I'm excited to join in.

    77148 Mangu Timur

    Finished my version of Mangu Timur just now. The pictures may not be that great 'cause i'm a bad photographer. Would like you guys to say what you think of it.
  3. Couldn't resist the silly-ish title - it was originally going to be "Novice Painter, versus LTPK:Core!" but I changed it a touch at the end.. Bonus points if you read that as the Innkeeper from Hearthstone. :P While I have painted miniatures in the past, I've first and foremost never shown such results to anyone, and secondly went in blindly with those ones, and while I was happy with them at the time, I wanted to improve. Other things in life took over for a while, and then finally I said that's it, I'm either going to FINALLY paint my primered army of doom that was at Doom In June 2005 or I'm going to sell the minis I've had sitting in boxes for over a decade. So glad I found out about the Learn to Paint Kits, because that pretty much solidified that decision right then and there :P Anyways! At some point we were all at this stage, and while looking over the pictures I can see a number of things I can improve on (*cough* like my up close photography skills *cough*), but for most things... I'm happy with them. Especially the chain mail on the Orc Marauder. I just might have to retake some of these photos, because I realize looking at them that, uhm, first and foremost f1.7 blurs half the model, and secondly, I didn't get a shot of the backside of the Marauder's Shield, which I was also happy about. Oops. But before I ramble on for three pages......! Drybrushing feels sooooo weird, but it was starting to click once I got to Magnu, even if I wound up overdoing it in a few areas and it so wasn't a dry effect anymore. But that's life, we learn from our actions!
  4. Painted 2/17 with LTPK received at Xmas. Asked for it after tough experience painting minis with Folk Art craft paints. (See bugbear warrior post.) Soooo much easier! It was like a different art form altogether. I followed the directions verbatim with the skeleton. I like greyish orcs so changed the skin tone and some other colors. IIRC, Mangu is per the painting guide.
  5. Finished up the last mini from the Core Skills kit. I think he turned out ok but the shield and shield arm was probably the hardest part to paint. It was hard trying to get into all those tight corners with the brush and trying to keep the blue and metal separate from each other on the shield when dry brushing. And here are all three of the Mini's from the Core Skills kit. Looking at them compared to some of the older stuff i've done I think i've seen some improvement. The orc, I think is still the star of the kit followed by Timur and the the archer. Now its on to the layer up kit.

    Mangu Timur #2 for my 5e Group!

    Here is another Mangu Timur. This time I made it for one of my fellow players in our Sunday game. His character is a Purple Dragon Knight turned Paladin of Vengeance. I worked the purple in subtly, and went with a green motif as per his suggestion.
  7. spent this afternoon getting a good start on this guy. Would've liked to do more, but sadly was getting a little too tired to focus on it. So far the trickiest areas have been his left arm right behind the shield

    My first four painted minis ever

    Hello everyone, So I have had reaper minis since the first bones kickstarter, but it wasn't until recently that I actually decided to start painting. I wanted to show off what I've done so far, and hopefully post other pictures as I make progress. I realize that these are rough, and I appreciate any advice on the matter. I posted these pretty well in the order that I painted them, and had anywhere from a few days to a few weeks between each mini. I think I am finally getting the hang of dry brushing, as seen with the golem, and the more I learn, the more I think I need to go back and touch up my older paint jobs. But overall, I'm pretty happy with the way they look. I can't wait to use them at the game table! P.S. I probably need to find a better place and method for taking pictures. These are ok, but I like the more professional looking pictures I tend to see. Apologies if the quality on these pictures is not excellent.

    End of year odds and ends

    First up my first sculpt, a green slime I made out of excess green stuff. I added a skull I had laying around on the suggestion of my husband. I also recently finished the last Bones zombie (77054) I had not yet painted, plus one of the ghasts (77159) for gaming use. I had a paint disaster earlier in the year where I spilled a bunch of metallic paint, so Mangu Timur (77148) was the recipient of some of that excess: Happy New Year everyone! Edited to add Figure SKU in the tags
  10. In the exchange thread it kinda sounded like Siri was challenging me to take better pictures than her. I don't have an actual light box, but today at least I do have the sun (Hello sun, nice of you to finally show up this month), so I snapped a few pics this afternoon. I left them a little larger than I normally do, so I'm sure you'll want to click on the resized images and bring them up in full detail. Thanks Siri! Now I just need to finish up my own exchange mini...

    Evilhalfling's August painting

    Mangu Timur feathered serpent & Faerie Dragon Tereziyna, bonepander wizard aka Ms Violet Damiel, Iconic Alchemit Mr. Bones Halbarand, cleric - generic sun god symbol (free handed) Seltyiel, iconic magus and that's everything that would fit in the case: Below is all that remains for me to paint in Bones 1: the rest were sold/traded away. Its not my goal to paint them all before Bones 2 comes in, but ..... Comments and criticisms welcome. I want to get better.

    NMM : Mangu Timur

    So this is my latest figure, it is done as well as I can, but im looking for criticism and feedback on it. This is 4-5 days of work sessions. Blending, glazing and light patterns were the techniques I was focusing on. the thing I am least satisfied with are the light slashes on the sword, are they better removed, or tweaked? any other problems that catch your eye? I wanna get better!

    Bones 77148 - "The Dark Knight"

    Been awhile since I posted, and this guy was partly to blame. I started him a couple of months ago, and was having trouble getting the armor to do what I wanted. I've had the painting bug again lately, so late last week (after finishing another mini, post after this one), I finally buckled down and forced myself to get through his armor. This is more NMM than I've ever done on a single model. After the armor was done, I flew through the rest. Back when I started this, I thought it would be neat to do something Final Fantasy inspired, and this is what I came up with. I thought this figure was a reasonably good approximation of Cecil as a Dark Knight. Final Fantasy IV (or 2, depending on how you count) is one of my all time favorite games. The base was made out of Sculpey...my one and probably only attempt at a self sculpted base. It worked ok here, but the other 2-3 attempts were disasters. If you know Final Fantasy, I'm sure you can recognize what i was going for. Hope you enjoy! C&C welcome as always.
