  1. I was inspired by how the paint combination on the Copper head of my Ma'al Drakar turned out, so I thought it would be fun to turn a mini into a bronze/copper statue! Given that I still didn't have a fully painted Sir Forscale (@Reaperbryan owns all 3 of the ones I've painted to date), I decided it was high time I had one of my own. Those two things resulted in this: I removed him from his broccoli base and glued him onto a 20mm Reaper base, so he'd have a pedestal sort of thing to stand on. He was very quick to paint up, just Green Liner, Copper Verdigris, a light Turquoise Ink wash, then careful drybrushing of Coppery Orange. I had fun thinking about what the wear patterns on a regular statue would be, hence why sections of his base and his right foot are so much shinier than the rest. Because given any flat surface, people are going to sit on it to rest or take pictures, and prominent areas are usually kept shined from people rubbing them. And here's a couple of pics just for fun, since Ma'al is still hanging out on my desk: Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  2. I call him Charles Bronzen or Bronzie for short.
  3. Earlier this week I got my hands on a set of bones 3 mythos cultists. I'm not really that into cthulhu, but I do love a crazy looking cult. So I went with purple robes with bronze weapons, and painted the faces as masks. Not really sure if they were meant to be masks, but I think it worked.
  4. Hi all, so want to work on bronze, and doing it as NMM . Any suggestions for base, shade and highlight colors?
  5. Well, I not only finished my dragon, I got her entered into the ReaperCon painting contest, and earned a bronze. I then went and got her professionally photographed cause I knew I'd never be able to do her justice. She's currently displayed, along with the medal, in the place of honor on my mantle above the fireplace. "Good night, Nathavarr. Good work. I'll most likely dump you in simple green in the morning." I am thinking about repainting the treasure on her base in bronze...
  6. A slightly tarnished oil rubbed bronze bull to be a mate for the brass bull I painted last year I had this idea as I was putting down the brown liner coat on the brass bull. A year later, I now have a pair of bulls to maul the PCs.
  7. I started painting Narthrax the other day, and I've worked on him a little more today... So the bulk is done, I'm mostly at details and basing and stuff atm. However, to try and make sure I stick with this, I've decided to pop up a WIP thread. So this is where I'm at =] Yep, I'm still painting on a tray, on a teatowel, on my couch =P
  8. Monument to the mighty heroes of something or other. Since they've got great big green statues they must have done terrible things to other people who probably talked funny. Bound to be Checkov's Knights in any dungeon situation. As it should be: Raw Umber, Robin's Egg Blue, Seafoam Green. The Tropicana lid plinth is a separate terrain item. They're just "army man" type Knights. Not sure what I'll use the other 30 in the bag for. I figured that larger, simpler figures might help my attempts to rehabilitate my fine motor skills.
  9. for the really serious Dragon lover this will only be available in Bronze in small numbers, but it does look smashing https://www.facebook.com/NickBibby.Sculpture.Bronze
  10. Ankheg with Metallic Chitin When I decided to work on this miniature it was because the base was already made and I liked the idea of something coming out of it, so I went with the Ankheg. As a Bones mini it was easy to remove pieces of the integral base until I just had the stones remaining. And mixing in some more stones from the same stamp as the base allowed it to fit in with the base more. The Ankheg is a combination of Bronzes except for highlights. There's plain Vallejo Bronze down his back as the base coat. Then the other colors are all mixed with the bronze for similar effect: Reaper Midnight Blue, Reaper Leaf Green, and Reaper Spattered Gore. The flagstones are all Vallejo Neutral Gray or that mixed with Midnight Blue and Reaper Rattlesnake Leather. Vallejo Chocolate Brown was used for the "dirt" side of bricks or the loose dirt that came with the integral base. Reaper Walnut Brown was used as a wash for the entire piece.

  11. Now for something completely different.... I'm putting together a piece for my wife while I wait for paints to finish out Jazzy's elf/fairy/lutanist/whatev! The Bladesinger ended up being too large for Munchkin usage, and she and Jazzy never could decide who the piece belonged to anyway so... Here's to round #2! This will probably be a 2-piece game piece starring Victoriana and her robot companion/butler/keeper of the cheese HLpR Bot, both of Bombshell Miniatures. My wife loves all things Jane Austin, all things Victorain, all things Tea Time... You get the idea. She likes to tease me about painting tiny things, then I remind her of the time I walked into her watching Pride and Prejudice on tv while crocheting a purse and sipping on herbal tea... ANYWAY! This should be right up her alley and she's excited about it. I'm considering several ideas for basing (I'm getting addicted to basing). I've asked and looked at examples of miniature rugs, wooden staircases, cobblestone streets, etc. However, I was digging through my ever-increasing bin of things I've ordered but haven't used yet, and came across my Army Painter field flowers. I may end up doing a picnic for a lovely spring day... All in the size of piece used for Munchkin (yeah! right!) At any rate, here are the pics of Victoriana and HLpR Bot in all their shiny metal glory! The Lovely Lady: The Fussy Assistant: Partners in Crime (and tea!): I'm going to mess around with a few ideas, and am going to have some fun with this. I've got some Sculpey I haven't used yet (the oak tree was Milliput), and I may try to whip something together. Here's an idea: I'm considering using Sculpey over these 2 wooden disks to build up a small mound with grass, flowers, and possibly some gingham blanket somewhere on the thing... Maybe just a small corner to indicate the picnic part. (For reference, the large disk is around 40mm) We'll see what happens!
