    Elvis, King of the Bards - Ral Partha

    So here's another homage figure I just finished. Ral Partha back in the day did a few figures based on popular figures of the time. The dwarf samurai I did recently was one, and here is another one, Elvis, King of the Bards. So hard to choose colors on him, so ended up kind of with a red, white and blue motif, kind of close to Fourth of July. He has some really small circular eyes, but they turned out surprisingly well. When I was editing the photos and got a good look at them, they were actually pretty decently laced. Anyhow, another great old Partha figure to enjoy!

    Bard, with Tartan!

    My BF had a PC made with Heroforge I've been putting off, cause he wanted Tartan painted. I've seen all the recent Tartan posts here and followed along with the tutorials and I'm so pleased with how it came out! He also requested a red leather jacket and green mohawk. Overall I am so happy with this mini. Used almost all reaper paints, and a couple of citadel washes. Thanks so so so much for all the tartan inspiration!
  4. Since it's arrival last month, I've been experimenting with my first 3D Printer. Today marked the first finished painted projects that were made on it. Several Giants, designed by Duncan "Shadow" Louca. The Gourdlock, by dutchmogul: One of my favorite finds while randomly searching for STL files, the Dwarf Rock Star, also by dutchmogul. Completing my Frostgrave Bestiaries is an eventual goal...here's a simple crab from Rocket Pig Tortles seem to be the new hotness since their introduction in a charity event tied to "Tomb of Annihilation". These guys are a mix from Fat Dragon and the wonderful DM Workshop The last are a murder of Redcaps, again designed by DM Workshop. I swapped out their weapons to give them some variety.

    89012: Lem, Iconic Bard

    In the 5E game I recently started played, one of the characters created a halfling bard. I had yet to paint Lem from the Kickstarter so he received a quick paint for the tabletop last week. Of course, that player didn't show up to last weeks game but Lem is ready when needed. Now that I look at it I see there are a few little bits that I missed but I doubt I go back and touch him up.
  6. I was stressing a lot, so I put down the figure that I'm doing really intense work on and picked up this one for fun. I filed her ears to be more humanish, as I painted her to be "Grace Desirap" from my D&D campaign. She's pretty much a punk rock princess, with the band Shocked Hearts. I soon realized that she was not the best figure for de-stressing, because there are many annoying nooks and crannies to worry about on her and it is easy to fudge up. That, and the green for her outfit has awful coverage. But it is a pretty green! I could have planned guitar colors better, but eh, whatever. I had fun with her.

Mod help purdy please? I must have double-clicked the submit :(

    02186: Alfred Redlute Bard

    Sometimes you need to see a miniature in person to appreciate it. This is one that would come up on the site and I’d scroll right past without a second thought, but I saw him hanging on the rack at the FLGS and was immediately smitten. Figure was prepped and primed as my previous show off thread went up, and was painted pretty quickly over the course of a couple evenings. Apologies for the picture quality (yet again), here is Alfred Redlute: The sculpt holds up pretty well, despite its age (S. Garrity 97 is engraved on the rear of the base). Minor flash and a small but noticeable pit on the lute’s fretboard, but no real mold line issues. Paint wise, nothing really fancy going on. Tunic is Templar Blue and it’s associated triad with Palomino Gold around the bottom and cuffs. Found some GW shades along with the mini, so the yellows and browns got a dose of Nuln Oil. His lute is red for the obvious reason. Sadly, some of the paint on the lute’s strings came off when sealer was applied. I believe the problem was the old brush I used being too stiff and rough. I fixed the damage best I could, but it’s nowhere near as nice as before. Al’s pantaloons are Dark Elf Highlight mixed with some Linen White. Turns out that triad is good for more than just drow skin! The base is meant to represent grass, as that was evidently the original intention of broccoli bases, so I painted it green. With MSP Grass Green. Because my imagination refuses to be bridled. All in all, not terrible for the time and effort, for me at least. Though I do regret the last glaze which made the blue highlights very hard to see. But I was too scared to try again, and they aren’t completely gone, so something to work on next time. As always, comments and critiques are welcome!

    Sunrise diorama

    After a long nights work at the Lucky Sunrise Inn, Eric the Bard stepped out of the back-stage door, he had rather heavy bag of gold hanging in his belt, it had been a good night. The streets were empty, and he began the walk home, but as he turned the first corner he saw the most beautifull sunrise over the roof tops. He just had to take his hat off and admire the sight... Two old minis, probaly Ral Partha. The base is scratch build, mainly from sculpting clay, a bit of wire and green stuff and short piece of plastic tube. The skull and the 'Lucky'-sign (the shield) is from the bits box. I tried to work with a bit of NMM, but I'm too satisfied with it. Mostly the handle on the bards sword is a bit off. But in overall I'm happy with it, and it was a lot of fun to paint, I'm just a sucker of OSL so hope the effect is visible. Any kind critiq is more than welcome, thanks for looking.

    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!
  11. 03398 Liriel Silverlocks Female Elf Bard by Derek Schubert
  12. 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.
  13. 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!"

    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!
  15. 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.

    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!

    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.
  18. 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

    10033, Mousling Heroes boxed set

    From the 10033, Mouslings Heroes Boxed Set here's; 03529B, Fenimore the Mousling Archer sculpted by Gene Van Horne.
  20. 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:

    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.
  22. 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.
