  1. I'm going to be playing in a second D&D group starting in a couple of weeks so I decided to get started on painting up my new character. I'm using darksword miniatures male warrior as my 2-handed vengeance paladin. It's really the only two handed weapon sculpt I could find that I really liked. I decided to just leave him on his base with how the sword is. I had to assemble the hand with the sword as there were two options for weapons, the greatsword and a great axe. Mold lines really weren't too bad. I decided to go with a red cloak since he's going to be from the order of the gilded eye. Their symbol looks to be a red background with a white gauntlet with an eye on the fist. I don't think I'm going to add the symbol to the cloak. Maybe if he had a shield I would give some freehand a try. Most of the base base coating is completed and I got started on the eyes. The armor I base coated a dark grey as I plan to highlight up from there to make the armor white. So the only areas the base coat should be showing is the shaded areas. I might add or subtract some gold details on the armor as I progress. Also the boots seem like they should be leather the more that I look at the details. For the most part they don't look too bad. I'm going to try and get the black outline a little thinner when I do the skin. Also the left eye is a little larger than the right, but I don't think it looks too bad. I'm undecided on touching it at this point because I don't want to really mess it up.
  2. Delicate piece. Glued a swordhand, head, tail, wings and a dagger. Wish i had more time, but i had to call finished at this point. Spent about a week more than usual on him. So much going on with him.
  3. Angelica is finally finished. I went back to my WIP thread, and I realized I started her over a year ago. She has been sitting on my desk waiting to be based for a while now. I decided to go with a relatively simple base. I really enjoyed painter her up.. I hope you enjoy seeing her finished up. I certainly do. Thanks for looking and any C&C you feel to give.
  4. What is it he's avenging? Did someone eat his lasagna?
  5. Heck yeah! I almost spiked the mini when I saw how nice the pics came out. Been struggling for 4 years now to take a good pic. For a friend, 2 more Dragonkin to go (one Reaper and another Dark Sword) oh and here are some larger pics for my picture sized challenged friends out there....
  6. A ranger from Darksword that my winning Patron chose for their commission prize this quarter. A really fun model, and exquisitely sculpted. The face is phenomenal. I also need to adjust my white balance. Everything is coming out a bit flat and on the red end.
  7. A friend has me painting up a bunch of these Darksword dragonkin models for a campaign. Experimentations galore in this one, especially to try and speed up painting the cloak and skin (used reapers clear paints.) I have been a Reaper paint man for quite some time, but recently picked up some citadel shades and have been nothing but happy with them. Their blue shade over the green/yellow skin gave just the desired effect. They also don't appear to be as matt as Reapers paints, most cases I prefer more matt, but in this case the reptilian skin seems to have just the right amount of gloss. Also used Vallejo's satin varnish (another new purchase) for the armor which protects and keeps it shiny without looking wet like the normal gloss would or destroying the shine like most of the matt varnishes I have used.
  8. This is a mini I finished for my cousin :) She loves Pugs and is constantly posting cute Pug videos so of course when I saw this mini I had to buy it and paint it for her. She also fosters a lot of dogs - her current foster just had 11 puppies!! (If you're in ID and looking for a pup, PM me ;)) Anyway, remember Adopt, Don't Shop! This is pretty much tongue in cheek/cute - I don't believe it's unsafe for family etc, but just in case, I'll be polite and spoiler :) (Next time I'll try to remember to take a picture before I ship the mini ><)
  9. Sansa Stark model from Darksword Miniatures. A friend request since he needed some kind of aristocratic elfish character for a campaign of his. So not really painted to look like Sansa. With Reaper Baron Tervin model. Since he was a young man he has fought battles both on the field and in the shadows silently in her name. Aware of his love for her, she perceives him as far too brash and foolish. Although he hasn't changed much in her eyes over the years, she has come to love him just the same.
  10. Apologies in advance for the poor pictures, still really struggling when it comes to photographing the larger stuff. Any how, presenting my first attempt at painting a bust, Darkswords Portrait of a Tiefling:- You can find a WIP thread for her here. Don't think she looks too bad, but I'm not sure if I'll get any more busts in the future though, I don't really have the patience or skill to paint this larger scale stuff. As always, any comments of criticisms are greatly appreciated..
  11. Yep, I am also jumping on this bandwagon. Haven't painted a bust before, so lets see how badly I screw this up. Got her assembled this morning in the hope of getting started on the painting later today, but I had some gaps to fill (she went together quite well, but my superglue kept drying before I could get the parts completely flush), so I'm leaving the green stuff to dry over night.
  12. So I started this for a player in our pathfinder campaign, he is the husband of the player that I painted some sensible shoes for.... and I have a list of the desired colors... Player wanted the sword instead of the wine skin... Eyes done with GW Scorched Brown, MSP Leather White, and SC75 Cantabric Blue, Skin tone is Arabic Shadow.... Thanks for looking! George
  13. This is the Cathedral of the forest from dark sword miniatures. The inspiration for the diorama was the artwork the mini is modeled from. I had to simplify it a bit to make it fit inside the sphere. The trees I made myself with copper wire and green stuff. The butterfly's are from Busch. I am happy how it turned out.. Making clear pictures of the sphere is still difficult.
  14. Finally got around to finishing up the base for this figure. I've had her finished for awhile now, but I wasn't sure how to finish off her base. Here is what I finally ended up with. PS: I plan to take better shots with another camera since I feel she deserves better shots. But I just wanted to post her since I was so glad to get her finished. Edit: different camera with other's shown beside for difference.
  15. Not really happy with it, but for what it's worth. .. My take on the Maid Marian
  16. Here is my attempt at a DSM mini from the KS. After watching the videos I understand blending a little more. Just need a lot more practice at it. C & C encouraged
  17. Been itching to paint up a human mini. I had this figure primed up, so I decided to start up this figure. I got the flesh base coated and the face painted up. Looking at it right, now I think I need to fix the eyes (Sigh). I think I'll keep going and finish up the skin tone and hair and see how I looks. Here is where she is at the start:
  18. Newest mini ^^ This figure is kinda special for me, as she's going to be my Pathfinder character, hence the slightly odd colours. Being a vampire (hence the purpleish skin) and a Nightblade, she has some odd abilities, like creating weapons and shields from shadow. So, to represent that, I had a go at painting the shield and sword as if they were part real, part shadow. I sanded some of the detail off from the shield to make it (hopefully) more effective I also sanded off all the various crosses from her armour, like on the kneepads, cause... vampire. Didn't make much sense to leave them there
  19. Started on my second muse from the Darksword kickstarter. I am happy with color combination. Now that I look at the pictures I see some errors I have to correct. The flame of the candle is not correct and the candle needs some work. Not completely happy with the eyes. The mask makes the eyes difficult to paint because they are so deep.
  20. I spent a lot longer than my average time on this delightful mini from Darksword, and I think it shows. I am very happy with him. His little buddy is from Wyrd Miniatures, the swamp accessories pack I think.
  21. I painted up this cool little Darksword figure to be the main villain in our current 5th Edition game. I was thinking some freehand on the robes, but I was very happy with the blending, so I chickened out... The eyes are so tiny, I am pleased they came out looking ok.
  22. It's been an age since I've had time to post anything as I'm again participating in a 3 month Winter Painting Challenge. This year we have 70 painters from 14 different countries, so we will raise a substantial sum for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Since December 5th I've painted 40 figures which puts me in 50th place. The top painter has done over 1,000 figures. I am rather a small fry, but I do have loads of fun being a part of it all. Recently I painted this female. She is a Lady in Waiting and was sculpted by Tom Meier. It's unlikely that I'll have much time to stop in until late March. I wish you all the best and do miss you. Thank you for looking.
  23. I have three odd creatures that need paint. Clockwise from left: The Darksword Frog Prince sculpted by Dave Summers, which will be a gift for my mother (as was the Frog Jester last year, and the (Not So) Killer Frog in 2006...you'll note a theme in my gift-giving) The Ral Partha Couatl (11-402) sculpted by Dennis Mize, which will be necessary in my Eberron campaign. And...a...worm...thing...The base was stamped "Marauder," along with some rather unidentifiable squiggles that are now completely gone, since I clipped away the integral base. I did some cursory research to no avail. I'm probably going to paint this up as everyone's favorite "I've never heard of it" burrowing monster, the thoqqua. But if anyone can tell me what it was supposed to be, I'd be interested to know. The worm is pretty well ready for paint. Clipped off the integral base, used a Happy Seppuku stamp to make some floor and squished him down into the putty. Ready to go. The Frog Prince: I plan on building a little scene eventually for the frog folk I paint for my mom, and the Prince will be on a finished floor. This will be built with Hirst. But he also needs to be magnetic, so I shaved down a Hirst tile to sit on top of a GF9 mag base without towering over other bricks. Of course, that integral base doesn't look quite right on that tile, so he went into the bench vice: A few minutes with the jeweler's saw and I had this: Unfortunately, I also had this: That mangled foot will need some GS, and the forefoot will get a pin to hold it in place. I'm not Dave Summers, but I think I'm up to this task. Now, the Couatl: Dropped him on another magnetic base and gave him some scenery: That's this stuff, all built up and pulled into waves. The integral base had something that might have been leaf litter and might have been fire, so I decided to go with something fire-like. Probably will be painted like a rainbow wind. Next, I gave the wings a bit of a bend and glued them in place: That's all for now. Let me know what y'all think, and if anyone knows what the worm thing is I'd love to know!
  24. I painted this guy as a Christmas present for my mom. He was inspired by the first dog my parents had while I was growing up - a beagle named Tungsten. A couple of random goals I had were to use the airbrush that I got for a Christmas present last year, and to try something new (the freehand on the edge of the cloak). I kind of waited a bit too long to start on this miniature, so there are some definite shortcuts I took, but I'm still very happy with him.
  25. Guy of Gisborne here is going to be my Christmas present for my mom, so I'm trying to knuckle down and get him done this weekend. I'm taking a short break to post the progress so far. There are a couple inspirations for this miniatures - the first dog we had growing up was a beagle named Tungsten; and my mom has a "dog" bathroom (it's decorated with dogs, it's not for dogs). The cloak is finished except for a few stray brushstrokes I need to clean up. The fur and armor are "basecoated" - they will need additional details. I expect the tabard to give me trouble, and to look at Jess Rich's studio paint job for tips. Depending on how quickly I finish the rest of him, I might try some simple freehand on the cloak - and by simple I mean something like a line near the bottom. Any suggestions or critiques are welcome.
