  1. So while I was stuck on another mini, I was putting together some of my other minis. Unfortunately I'd gotten quite far into assembling this particular one, before I realized I wouldn't be able to pack him away afterwards due to his abundance of tiny, easily broken bits, so he's barged his way to the front of my painting queue. Eventually Cawl will look like this:- But currently he looks like this:- As he also happens to be pretty damn fiddly to paint. Honestly, I would have liked to have left him in even more sub-assemblies, but it would've started to get silly. On the plus side I already have a colour scheme sorted for my little group of GW Cyborgs (even though I still have most of them to paint):- Although Cawl is a bit more complicated than the rest (so much cabling!), and there's bound to be colours in there I no longer have (why did I have to use Ruddy Leather on everything?). Anyways, started on his lower half:- With a basecoat of Medium Olive and a Brownshade wash on the cloth areas. Sadly, the wash didn't do a particularly good job of settling in the folds, so I will need to repaint pretty much all of this.
  2. This was a speed paint I did in an attempt to paint faster and not overthink my miniatures. I had painted fhe base previously. Boris took and hour, my NMM attempt took 40 more minutes.
  3. Decided to start painting this awesome barbarian up as part of the Hobby Hangout Competition that's going on right now! Torgar the Barbarian Limited edition: 100 copies Concept: Roberto Cirillo Sculptor: Raul Garcia Latorre Material: Resin (Bigchild Creatives) Pieces: 10 Weight: 66gr Scale: 1:24 (75mm)
  4. Okay, following the finale of the Copper Dragon ... Soonâ„¢ ... I will start this guy. In between efforts on finishing Gauntfield and the Dragon, I've taken to cleaning the troll. I'll spray a new coat of primer on him shortly and base coat him. Stay tuned.
  5. This is another of my ReaperCon Painters entries. It is the Hunter from Kabuki Models and one that I decided to use to practice painting red. I originally was not going to do blood effects but since she is carrying heads in the bag, I thought to give it a go. I went a little crazy with the blood, it started with some on the heads and axe but then I thought she surely would have gotten some on her. Well it may be excessive but I kind of like it and it inspired the name "Reason for Red".
  6. One of the figures I completed over the new year's weekend. I was trying for better definition, don't think I quite got there. May try again with the metal version. Didn't care for the pedestal she came on so I used one of the many bases from my bag of crap.
  7. Giant Mountain Troll The Old Troll and the Boar I cleaned, repaired and repainted a long time baddy from our gaming sessions, Reaper's Giant Mountain Troll. He had fallen to the floor a few times over the years and had a gloss coat instead of a matte coat for a sealer. So he was quite due for the treatment. Given his look and feel, I decided to paint him as an older troll. His skin is duller. His hair receding considerably. He hasn't fought anyone in a long time. Even the boar for his dinner wasn't much of a hunt. So he's kept his clothing in relatively good repair and found and made some better furs to wear. He still prefers his old stone axe. He was happy to find some stone laced with mithral to make a new axe head for it though. You can check out the WIP post to see everything I did to get him here. WIP The ol'boy will return to the carry case to stand before those pesky fellas from yonder cities and protect his mountain or wherever he gets plopped down. Enjoy. Check him out in the Inspiration Gallery. (Approved) Added to Thrym's Index of Reaper Miniatures & Thrym's General Show Off List
  8. Unsurprisingly, another Games Workshop mini. This time it's the mighty Barbarian Hero Class Character from their Silver Tower board game. Had a lot of fun painting this guy up, it certainly made a change from all the heavily armoured dudes I've been working on lately, and I think the finished mini is one of my best to date. Also got a chance to try out some of my new grass tufts, I'm in love with the Sandy Tuft so expect to see those little suckers on everything. As always, and comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  9. This might be my favorite Reaper Orc. Look at those jowls!
  10. Vilhanna the Victorious from Red Box Games (currently available through Hasslefree Miniatures as Hanna of Vil). A quickie to improve my 2016 painted stats :) And appreantly I'm still not confident enough to try some free hand on a shield.
  11. Another awesome sculpt from Hasslefree Miniatures. I'm quite happy with the skin tone of this one.
  12. It is said that Sister Hilda's sermons were more blistering than any flame strike, and that her withering scowl could flatten a troll.
  13. 60182: Hakon, Iconic Skald Sculpted by Bobby Jackson This is another commission piece for me. The character in the Patherfinder game we are play is a Ranger who throws axes. He liked this figure so much he bought it on the spot! Said he wanted it to have a kind of coloration at Boba Fett. So I'm working from that, kind of. Edit: I sculpted the base my self. It's just a simple brick pattern.
  14. I've been hitting a slump in my painting that's been keeping me from these forums for quite a while. I'm trying to regain my rythm and getting some pieces done. This is one of them: Gorak the Ravanger from the Warlords Miniature Lines. He was supposed to be a stand in for my current monk character in a DnD5 game, although I'm having second thoughts. Still love the miniature though. Seems quite angry :)
  15. I've been hitting a slump in my painting that's been keeping me from these forums for quite a while. I'm trying to regain my rythm and getting some pieces done. This is one of them: This is Viggoth the Remorseless, from Red Box Games. He's abit smaller than I would like to but still a great sculpt. Somehow I messed up the varnishing and I just can't for the life of me get some of the glossy spots matt, no matter how much I spray them will dull coat (I've only sprayed him once or twice, I don't want to ruin the whole figure).
  16. Classic bucket head warrior. This guy was fun to paint.
  17. I painted this fierce looking dwarf over the last couple of afternoons. I didn't do anything with the base as I like my pre-slotta vintage minis to remain "au natural". He is an oldie from the mists of time by Citadel Miniatures under their "Chronicle Miniatures" range. Thanks for looking!
  18. This is 77299 Female Antipaladin that I received from fanguad for the Spring Exchange. My "instructions" for my partner were to paint something that would fit either "Something wicked this way comes" or "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good." Fanguad did great on both counts. She is definitely up to no good with her giant axe. He threw in a couple other sinister figures that are most certainly wicked! (89010: Damiel, Iconic Alchemist & 77123: Zalash, Dark Elf Assassin) She is beautifully highlighted and shaded and I am going to look at her when I next paint skin as hers is gorgeous! I love her face! We also happen to have the same color hair! Ha! Thank you, fanguad! I love her so much! My pictures do not do her justice. Fanguad, if you took better pictures, please add them on here!
  19. Hi again, still working on more Ral Partha dwarves, and here are my last two additions, two dwarves with axes, but one kind of a barbarian feel, decked out in furs and a bit of scale mail, and the other one more of a rank and file dwarf, kind of skinny and in a coat of chainmail. I'm enjoying painting these dwarves actually, as it keeps torturing me with different armors and keeps me working on the NMM. The barbarian dwarf was kind of interesting in that I could get the white of his eyes on the left eye in, but couldn't reach it for a pupil, as he's got these big, shaggy eyebrows. Made it a bit challenging, but I don't think it's very noticeable, especially at these angles and the other eye was very easy to do and reach.
  20. Presenting the Blood Secrator from Games Workshops Age of Sigmar box set. I'm not sure what a Blood Secrator does, but it involves wearing a vest made of skulls and hitting people with a nifty-looking (but undoubtedly highly impractical) quadruple headed axe. Had this guy on 'The Shelf of Shame' for awhile, it's a very nice mini (very 3 dimensional if that makes any sense) but when you have shaky hands the prospect of painting all the bits tucked behind all the other bits is pretty nerve-wrecking! Despite that I think he ended up looking pretty good. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  21. These are the minis I painted for Fealron for Secret Sophie. He said he was wanting some monsters that would live in a cavern or ice cavern. So, I imagined Ankheg (77230) as the mother and the channel grub (77226) as the larva. I painted the channel grub in blues and purples with yucky pink suckers. I used a little water effect on the slime trail it was sitting on. (Like a giant yucky slug!) I just painted the base for gaming like it was shiny ice. I used a gloss varnish because I wanted the grub to look slimy and icky! I wanted to use the same color scheme for the mother but I wanted her to look like she had a hard shell. I wanted it to look slightly iridescent like a big bug. I used shades of purple and blue and mixed in some bronze metallic. It doesn't show well in the pictures. I painted her base to match the grub's. The last guy is Kegg, Bugbear Hunter (77233). I wanted him to be usable in or out of a cavern. I gave him a badger fur pattern. I wanted him to appear to live in a colder climate so his loincloth is made from the pelt of a snow leopard. I tried my hand at "rusting" his shield and axe. I ended up really liking him and if I didn't have so many minis in queue, I would have to make a tribe of bugbears! I love the bugbears anyway! I hope these 3 cause a lot of trouble for some adventurers!
  22. I painted this guy quickly in about 3 hours tonight. He's apparently going to be a super intimidating D&D character with a heart of gold. Second pic's a bit blurry - sorry!
  23. I call this guy Meat because that's the only word he knows how to say.
  24. She's a pretty awesome mini. I'm a big fan of the standing at rest figures. Or standing proud weapon not raised minis. You know what I mean? https://www.instagram.com/p/BA9-5xzKrP7/
  25. He must have found that sword. Resourceful!
