  1. 14080: Uriel, Guardian Angel

    Here is my next project I'm trying to focus on while filling in with the hill giant. This is a birthday present for a friend. I'm thinking of going for a dark angel look with reds, purples and blacks. I'll attach the wings after I get most of the upper portion painted up.
  2. This is Talespinner's fault. And also OneBoot's idea. (In another thread Talespinner challenged people to try something that was new —to them— and then Oneboot mentioned OSL and this specific model.) So, I acquired one 77364 on Saturday. Then I headed into the paint area to make a start. At that point "a idea flew into my funnel" after I spotted newish bottles of Blue Liner and Black Primer. These paints got mixed... ...FOR SCIENCE!™ The other part of the idea was to prime the mini with this inky dark mixture (roughly 50/50 Blue Liner/Black Primer**) where the lantern light could not reach. I Probably worked too fast. I am thinking the back of her head should be all inky as well. The pizza happened later. **That made a nice rich black. Next: there will be a sword swap.
  3. So for the get to know you thread I said I was going to try painting the deva with interference paint. I started with adamantium black as a base coat. Then I used red interference over the top for the skirt. Blue for the armor and wing tips And purple on the wings. When it dried I washed adamantium over the top because the interference likes to settle too thickly in the crevasses even why dry brushed on. I also played with using a little silver to highlight the skin, and to make stars. I still am trying to figure out how I can edge highlight brighter with the interference.
  4. Sparrow painted some angels (pic heavy)

    I painted up some angels, this is the first time I've painted feathers that I can recall. This is also my first attempt at painting marble. My eyes are slowly getting better. Edit: There are some better pics of the second and third angels a few posts down. Deva: Angel of Shadow: Angel of Protection:
  5. So, was bored and wanted to paint something to take along for my GenCon trip as a Prize for some DDM Guild events. So, I saw the Planetar from the most recent DDM set and thought, it had a cool pose and a bad paintjob! So I decided to try and fix that. The Wings look a lot better in person. Also, whoever thought that style of Flying Post was a good idea should most likely be fired and never allowed to be in change of miniature anything ever again! Took about an hour and a half to paint it. GF
  6. Random Pewter WIP

    After spending a lot of time working on speed paint tabletop minis, I decided to switch it up and try to do as good of a paint job as i can on a few of my pewter minis. I selected: 03253 sabertooth cat Andowyn Thrushmoor, Bonehenge Iconic from RCon 2016Crimson Herald, Disciple of C'thun from RCon 2016 Dodo from Bombshell Miniatures Ram from Bombshell miniatures (no picture yet) 14080: Guardian Angel, Crusaders Solo enjoy the poor cell phone pictures of the three i have pictures of
  7. 02961 Angel of Shadow

    Here is my Angel of Shadows I attempted OSL (eventually I'll get it right), but I'm fairly happy with her. Skin is Reaper's Dusky Skin Triad, hair is white with blue ink then drybrushed with a silver + extremely pale blue, wings are metallic drybrushed over VMC German Grey, and the white is a buildup from bonewhite up to pure white. The basing is from the Happy Seppuku stamps, one side the grass, the other side the broken wasteland, with the purple flower being from the Jungle Vines stamp. Color commentary and general thrown pottery welcome. I know the OSL is a bit too strong (any suggestions?).
  8. Some of you may remember that last December I converted an extra Darkrasp figure, that I had traded for back in 2013, into a Santa Claus themed wizard figure. Well, this week I finally got around to painting the original Darkrasp, Evil Priest, figure that came in the Dark Heroes set from my original Kickstarter pledge; and once again I did a conversion. A bit of train of thought now... As I looked at this figure and pondered how to paint it, I considered how most of the painted examples of this figure that I have seen have been done up in dark colors: black, grey, brown; and I decided that I wanted to do something different. So, I thought about light colors, and immediately I thought, "How about white?". As I considered white, I thought that with his flowing robes white would make him look almost like an angel; which led me to think that, well, if he was an angel then he'd be The Angel of Death, which would be kind of be a cool figure. If I was going to sell the angel idea he would need wings though; and where would I get wings? So I started pawing through my unpainted Bones collection, remembering that the Lesser Demons set had a bunch of winged figures in it. And, voila! I found what I thought would be the perfect set of wings there among the Lesser Demons: The Vulture Demon I was able to pry the wings off the figure, and I held them up against the Darkrasp figure to see how they looked. I couldn't believe what a perfect match they were! Not only did they seem the perfect size, and were feather covered; but they also mirrored the symmetry of the figure with the left wing raised like the left arm, and the right wing extended to match the position of the scythe. So, I used my Dremel with a small drill bit to cut a slot in Darkrasp's back, and glued the wings in place with Gorilla Superglue. ​And here's the painted result. I really like how this conversion turned out. I think he makes for a very formidable angel, and I think the all-white paint job looks really good on the figure.

  9. Fallen Angel

    I started this figure to show a friend how I approached painting skin. The figure is produced by Milosh's Miniatures (basically a guy's side project to make miniatures he likes... you can find him on facebook) and comes in 54mm and 75mm versions. This is the 54mm version. Instead of painting her as the traditional 'good' angel, I thought I'd do a fallen angel version. My normal skin mix was changed to create what you see here. The shadows are a mix of ~50% Chestnut Brown, 25% Rosy Shadow, and 25% Burgundy Wine. For the darkest shadows (under the legs, chin, etc), I just added more Burgundy Wine to that mix. The mid tone is 50/50 Rosy Shadow and Vampiric Shadow. To create the highlights I used 75% Vampiric Skin and 25% Fair Skin. Then just a bit of Vampiric Highlight for the top highlights. I still plan to go over the skin with some blue and purple glazes (in a few spots), but that will wait until after I finish the rest of the figure
  10. 77364: Angel Lancer

    Originally she was just a test case for OSL off the lantern and spear blade. I then tried using some interference paints to see if they'd work better, and, well... they took over the piece. So dynamic lighting yes, OSL not really. But it's interesting how with interference paints, you can paint highlights that only show up when light strikes them from a specific angle, usually roughly back towards the light source, which for minis, tends to be just above the viewing position. Also of note, my camera was going insane trying to photograph this. I don't think it likes light reflecting off the mica straight into the sensor.
  11. Dark Sword - Harbinger Angel

    This is Dark Sword Miniatures Harbinger, Female Angel (SKU 7605) that I got as part of the Dark Sword Stephanie Law Kickstarter. A beautiful figure, sculped by Patrick Keith.
  12. Ral Partha Archangel

    Mini appears to be this guy. I was going for a kind of unearthly celestial glow with him, though it came out really strangely in the hair. Still, fun to paint :-) Update: I didn't like how his base looked. Although it was transparent, it didn't give the illusion of floating, so I added some "clouds", which is closer to what I wanted, but still doesn't quite give the flying illusion. :-/ If anyone has any suggestions on how I can make him look more like he's flying, I'm all ears :-) Thanks!
  13. 77364: Angel Lancer

    A bit of work on my massive backlog of Bones, while I consider how I want to base Excelsy. Couldn't resist doing a little bit of conversion work. Anyways, dual source strong OSL is kicking my tail, and also color identity is almost completely gone. I might knock it back to weak OSL just so I can splash more color into the mini. And also so I can do the sheer fabric effects that I wanted to paint. Sheer fabric is always fun to do.
  14. 77364: Angel of Shadows (new cropped photos)

    My first finished piece with some minor OSL, made as a gift for a very dear friend of mine. The head of this otherwise beautiful bones miniature had some casting flaws, so I swapped her head with a cast copy of a Kingdom Death Sunstalker dancer Pin-up miniature. Any critique is very much appreciated, since I just want to learn and keep getting better with miniature painting.
  15. tried one of the new angels in the bones collection. hope I got it right. one of the pictures the light was bad. it turned out to be my favorite pic of the warrior angel. as always please let me know what you think.
  16. 02190 Angel of Light

    First finished mini of 2016. I started this with the intention of gifting it to my Mom for Xmas. Well, Xmas is crazy busy and I didn't have time to finish her. So she'll get her tomorrow instead. She will be a part of the Nativity scene I plan on creating for her Xmas present this year. I loved painting this one, all that lovely cloth and the wings were super fun to do. I'm very pleased with the yellow. Yellow has been the bane of my existence but I think I may have cracked it. Now if only I could take a decent picture...
  17. So.. finally getting started on this.. don't know the full direction yet... I'll get better pictures as I go..
  18. 77365: Angel of Protection

    A gift for my mother
  19. Angel of Radiance & Chromegear

    Here are a pair of figures I brought to ReaperCon. The Angel got a Silver Medal in the Painters. I had never painted anything like a mural or 2-dimensional before so I took a chance on trying something fun and inventive with Wyrmgear.
  20. 02096: Angel Of Death

    This is a miniature I've had for a long time. Painted it when I was young. :) Still love the model. So much personality.
  21. 02095: Angel Of Mercy

    Horrible pics, but I did this in the last couple days for my daughter
  22. My dear friends. I am taking upon myself a major undertaking. I am painting a mini up for my mother for Christmas. For that purpose it needs to be my very very best, and to that end, I turn to you, my fellow painters, to lend me all the advice and tips you can to bring out a complete piece worthy of giving away. This is the figure I have taken on. Sandra Garrity's beautifully sculpted Angel of Mercy. There is so much incredible detail in the wings, and so many wonderful folds of cloth, It is just a gorgeous piece, and I want to not only do the figure justice, but make it worthy of my mother, My own Angel of Mercy for so many years.
  23. Just saw this on my feed on Facebook from a couple friends and I just had to share this with folks here, since this is right in our wheel house. How to turn Barbies into Doctor Who Weeping Angels
  24. In memory of Amalor Myrnnyx

    Amalor Myrnnyx, you will be missed! Darksword Elmore Angel (1308)
  25. I've been quite around the web for a while, but I have been painting. The first miniature I finished was a Christmas present for my mom. It's Garrity's "Angel of Light" painted in a breast cancer awareness theme for my mom :) Next is a speed paint for my PC in a module my group is currently playing. She's a gnome pyrokinetic :) and Cassie, gnome Wizard is perfect for her. The figure itself was a little rough around the edges in regards to the mold, but I like her nonetheless. She took about 3-4 hours. The next one is a "traditional" bard that is based off a Shakespearean theme I found on colourlovers :) He was a speed paint as well. Finally, the next one is a 54 mm miniature I picked up at the last con I was at. She's from Phoenix Miniatures :) I painted her up to be "Jane Austen-ish" for a dear friend of mine, for Christmas (she and I are both avid fanatics!). I went with a simple color scheme and based her with cobblestone plasticard amongst a colorful flower garden. I gave her the figure today and she loved it :) I'm just glad she liked it!! Enjoy! C&C welcome and appreciated <3 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, everyone!
