  1. 01578: Carol, Christmas Bard

    I've been meaning to make a show-off thread for this for a while, but the pictures aren't great and I no longer have the mini because she was a Secret Sophie gift to Inarah last year. Lots of things I'd like to have spent more time on, like the stray red brush stroke I noticed after I'd sent her off. Part of the point of an exchange is that there's a deadline, so that's just the way the cookies crumble. Figured people would really want to be able to see what the back side of the mini looks like now that she's available in the store again. Merry Christmas!
  2. 03398 Liriel Silverlocks Female Elf Bard by Derek Schubert
  3. In a recent campaign, my character was a dwarven bard...but it was decided he would be tone deaf.My idea of making him a beat-poet was quickly shot down, so I had to think of a different kind of performance. A moment of inspiration, some hacking of bits and attaching of Armorcast laser blasts, and thus was born my dwarf firedancer: "Imma dance!"
  4. Custom Mini: A bard and his cat

    I have a few minis displayed at my local game shop and was contacted a couple weeks ago about doing a custom job for a D&D player's Heroforge mini. This is the first time I've dealt with their Premium plastic, and it is much better than the detail plastic they used before - though there were a lot more little plastic spurs that I didn't entirely erase all trace of. I'm pretty happy with it, and the client is happy, so mission accomplished!
  5. I got my Stephanie Law KS pack from DSM. Its awesome. There are many more pieces to glue than in Reaper figures so I'm kinda worried about that. Anyway, onto the not so pressing but very fun matter. I had the honor of being the first one to get a goofed up package in the kickstarter. I got the male necromancer (arms and body), the arms of the male bard, and a second male necromancer body. DSM swiftly sent out a replacement bard, complete with a body and arms. Goal: The Necrobard Now I have spare bard arms and a spare necromancer body. Dilemma: the arms are well, arms. The body needs a single arm. The socket is also not perfect due to slightly different clothing but it is darn close. The arm and the arm-hole that are needed are both at the elbow joint. How would you recommend taking the right hand off the lute so that the male necromancer can be holding a lute in front of him in his left hand? Thus he would become the necrobard, who would sing the dead back to life.
  6. Just finished up with "Cadence", the figure is a modification of Dark Sword Miniatures Female Rogue (DSM-7437) where I cut off the dagger in the off-hand and added the lute from Reaper's Adventuring Accessories (02638) to make her into the party bard. WIP Pics here - Anyhow enough chatter, here she is at my Tabletop+ standard: Inspiration pic here - Thanks for looking! C&C are welcomed and appreciated.
  7. Broken Gods - an ub3r WIP

    It's been a while since I posted anything I'm working on, quite frankly I've not been working on anything the last couple of months, I ran outta steam on a couple of projects I was doing about 3/4 of the way through on them and will finish them (eventually). Anyhow, I'm working on 3 tabletop plus figures for 3 of my D&D group friends who are playing in my current campaign entitled "Broken Gods." All the characters were gods 5,000 years ago. Then the event happened, the peoples of the world stopped believing in them. They were cast down to the earth and have just now awoken... The PC's are all Demigods with extraordinary powers, but they have no memories of their former selves yet, they gain those as they progress and level up. The three PC's I'm currently working on are the party warlock, party eldritch knight and party bard. I have included inspiration pics of their characters they provided to me. Bale the Eldritch Knight, god of thunder and battle - the figure is from the Minx kickstarter, I modified him by cutting off and filing off spikes that were protruding from his back and bare arm, I noticed he has 4 fingers, but this is so close of a figure to the pic that I ran with it. Next is the party Warlock, Cairan (pronounced keer-awn). He's the god of death and war tactics, think Valkyrie. The figure is reaper 03505 (Karahl Farstep). He has an affinity with ravens so I took an eagle or hawk from one of the reaper bones familiar packs, mounted it on his shoulder and am painting it up as a raven. Finally we have Cadence, the goddess of Sunlight and Music - she's the party bard. I took DSM-7437 (Female Rogue Dual Wield by Jeff Grace) and modified it, cutting off the dagger in her offhand, used a reaper accessories lute I had and attached to her side/hip under her arm. If you've followed my WIPs before you know my method of priming is to prime everything in black first and then go back over it dry-brushing with white primer to pick out details and highlights. If you have questions, please ask and I'll continue to work on these for the next week or so. I don't want to put more than like 5-6 hours total in each figure, just enough to have a nice tabletop plus paint-job and to make them represent their characters in the game. Thanks for following along and please enjoy the ride!
  8. 02186: Alfred Redlute Bard

    I've been working on this guy for the past week or so. It's one of the PC's in a D&D game I'm a part of. I tried to work on making the skin, especially the face, have better shading to look a little more realistic. I'd like to give a shout out to @Willen for taking the time to help me out in my WIP post.
  9. Hi everyone! I thought I would try a W.I.P. for this mini to get some feedback and suggestions along the way. I'm still trying to figure out a color scheme for this guy so any suggestions would be welcome! Fredo is a Bard with a hint of Cleric. He's a charmer and a bit of a ladies man. In our campaign he constantly tells stories about the time he slept with an angel and his favorite pastimes are doing useless flips and somersaults as well as jamming out on his piccolo. I started with the hardest part. The face! I tried a bit of a variation on the Bette Davis Eyes technique and I think it turned out pretty well (as long as you don't look at it under the magnifier *shudder*). Any suggestions on a cool color scheme for Fredo again would be very welcome as well as any comments and tips before I start painting again! "Well... I'm knocked out again. Can someone please revive me before I die?" -Fredo ~WhatsEcstacy
  10. 10033, Mousling Heroes boxed set

    From the 10033, Mouslings Heroes Boxed Set here's; 03529B, Fenimore the Mousling Archer sculpted by Gene Van Horne.
  11. Yesterday, I wrapped up the final touches on quite a few miniatures that arrived via Kickstarter this November. I thought the first gallery should be the simplest, and it's just a few of the promo pieces from TAG's recent "Halfling Rooster Riders" project. First, we have the Drunken Halfling Bard, who I have been wanting since his green first went up as a fan project: And a Dwarf Floozy to accompany him:
  12. 02186: Alfred Redlute Bard

    I was commissioned a couple days ago to paint this for a friend's D&D character. I originally wasn't a big fan of the sculpt, but it grew on me some. It was nice to get back to painting metal miniatures after doing Bones projects for awhile.
  13. Another conversion, this time a Gnome Bard from Reaper's "Balto Burrowell". This is to represent one of the player characters in my "Storm King's Thunder" campaign.
  14. Stonehaven halforc bard and fighter

    So finally got these two finished, the two females first, and now I've got the two males pending to finish. One thing I'm a bit miffed at was that I didn't plan the grass well, so you actually can't see her delightfully painted toenails. Oh well, next time.....
  15. As usual, in the last painting binge, I wound up with a few pieces who didn't group with the others. They're all intended for Frostgrave, but they're more random Soldiers and encounters than anything else. Some group shots: The Barbarian Chief from the recent Gnickstarter: The Trap Expert and Tunnel Fighter from the same source: Some random terrain or Treasure Tokens made from old Warhammer standards: A Bard (Reaper Miniatures) A rather sinister Apothecary, who started life as a Plague Doctor from Reaper's "Pathfinder" line: A bandit test mini, made from the Frostgrave Cultists and Warlord Celts: A Wolf/Dog (Frostgrave official again) An Imp, via Mantic: A group of Harad Abrakhan Guard from the GW LotR line, who are intended as heavies for an Arabian Nights themed warband:
  16. Stonehaven half orcs

    So here are my next four figures and being I did a WIP for the last Stonehaven figures I painted, I might as well do another. So here are the four I chose.
  17. 60182: Hakon, Iconic Skald

    Hakon, Iconic Skald. Not much to say about it really. Comments, questions and critique are more than welcome.
  18. 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: Sandru Vhiski from Reaper Pathfinder Miniatures range. I don't really know why I rushed him up the production line. He's somewhat fitting for a character I'm playing in a DnD game, although yet he's not. Perhaps he's a good fit for a future character? Sadly he ended up somewhat flat.
  19. 77078: Astrid, Female Bard (Bones)

    I finished up the last of a group of female adventurers I have been working on all in the same color scheme. Here's Astrid, whom I previously painted as a drow.
  20. Hey! I painted the models Saramonde, Crusaders Chronicler and Kyla, Bounty Hunter! And HERE you will find a post on my blog!
  21. Leif Rawkinson

    Hey everyone! I feel like such a slacker with my painting lately, but I'm trying hard to get back to full speed! (I realize I said this last time... but, it turns out that I'm getting the wife into the hobby as well, and that makes for more painting time! ) My new job has some blocks on the Reaper Forums, so it'll be hard for me to keep up with things like I used to, but I will try my best to get back involved with the friendliest painting community there is! Anyway, here's my rather rockin' conversion of Stonehaven Miniature's Dwarf Bard: I have loved this mini since I first backed the Kickstarter years ago but haven't managed to paint him until now! Nevertheless, I'm happy I waited until my skills had improved! As always, thanks a bunch for looking!!!
  22. DSM housecat Bard

    And because I shouldn't miss one (I did have a run on the critters) this is one of the dark sword miniatures critters from their latest kickstarter. these are a little more posed than the Oathsworn critters but they still have a lot of personality and can add quite a bit of fun to the workbench. (especially after 54 tyranids in 12 hours). this fellow has learned the art of fighting and drinking and become a true expert. I had a good time with the reds on the tunic and tried a little bit of freehand on the inside of the cloak. Styles and patterns on clothing don't come easy for me as I prefer my clothing rich toned natural and unpatterned. but this guy was just begging for a little color on the inside of the cloak so I gave it a shot. Enjoy!
  23. 60011: Lem, Iconic Halfling Bard

    Quick tabletop job for a friend. Crappy pictures as I did not have time to get out the good stuff so my Table War case and iPad had to stand in. Coat looks off in the photos as my friend requested a shimmery coat so I did a metallic wash. In person it looks fantastic.
  24. 03433 - Corim the Kestrel, Gnome Sorcerer

    Zed, the Gnome Bard Extraordinaire! He has the gift of gab,and a quick wit! If he can't talk his way out of trouble, a quick illusion or two, and POOF! he's gone like the wind! This was my first real attempt at OSL. Overall, I think it came out pretty good. Obviously I have some work to do on getting right. However, when I sent the WIP pick to my buddy I was painting it for, he flipped! He thought it was amazing, so I decided to call it. In the picture, I can see where I may have lightened it a little too much. I am still happy with the way he turned out, being my first real attempt at something like this. I hope you enjoy him as much as I did painting him! I give you, Corim Kestrel as ZED THE EXTRAORDINAIRE!! And as always, CC is welcomed and appreciated! CAH
  25. Some washed out photos, mostly of the new soldier types introduced in "Frostgrave: Thaw of the Lich Lord" I blame Jonas for my inability to get good shots this time around:
