  1. Gif here ---> http://imgur.com/gallery/nf1aLJB Lazy so I'll copy pasta what I wrote on Imgur. "Made a base for an upcoming project. Its a simple LED and battery and a LOT of hot glue. I got a flickering candle from the dollar store and ripped it apart for the pieces. Then I made an aluminum foil cast and filled it with hot glue. (Foil doesn't stick to it so when it cooled it came right off) It was a lot of trial and error, but I am happy with it. Its intended to look like a volcano with lava dripping down from the mini, hopefully it looks better when its painted!" Anyway I am very excited for this one, I just hope I do the mini justice! (Especially after how long that base took me to make)
  2. Sorry for the 'batch' aspect, but... it is indeed a batch submission of some of the last pieces coming out of the production line for Septembre and October. I couldn't really decide which one to post so here you go :)
  3. I painted a few of these awhile ago - the fire elemental and the water elemetals. The earth elementals I painted up this past week for my Friday game. Sorry about the insane number of pictures..

    77082: Large Fire Elemental

    With limited time to paint I needed to get an easy win, so I tackled the Large Fire Elemental a couple weeks ago and finished him up last weekend. I was hoping to make the face standout, but the details were messed up and to fix with paint at my skill level would have wasted the translucent properties of the Bones material. After prep I coated the mini with a layer of Tamyia clear yellow. Added saffron yellow to the dark crevises and pure black to the tips of the flames. The opaque paints left a stark change between their location and the untouched Translucent material, so I coated the whole thing with the Tamyia clear yellow again. This caused the differences to disappear. The base was made with a Happy Seppuku stamp, black primer, grey dry brushing, and yellow saffron drybrushing for the osl. Protected with spray clear coat and brushed matte sealer on the base. C&C welcome.
  5. I've painted very few monsters, and I thought I'd get my toes wet by doing up a few rather iconic minis in the fire and water elementals from Bones I and II. I really like these guys. I need to pick up an earth elemental still, and have my fingers crossed for an air elemental in Bones III to round out the elemental quartet. I wish that the store weren't out (again/still) of the fire elemental, as I'd love to have another one. This one belongs to my roommate. He likes collecting Reaper minis, but doesn't paint them. So good news is I have plenty of minis to practice on. Bad news is once I move out from living with him, he'll have the majority of the minis. My hoard is growing, but slowly, as I have to wait for them to be in stock and also have money to spend (I missed the Kickstarters -- getting in on Bones III though!). Anywho, the fire elemental I used a yellow wash, then drybrushed him after. The water elemental was just drybrushing. The darker blue on that one is the base mini's color.
  6. As part of the Memorial Day weekend paint binge, I finished up these two fire elementals from long ago. Grenadier Fire Elemental from Monster Manuscript III (1503): Castle Creations Fire Elemental from the Elementals set (BP-15):
  7. Another one I finished up during the Memorial Day paint binge, Anzen's little fire elemental familiar. Her hand was miscast so I sculpted her a new appendage, I think it came out ok. Front linked for Nudity: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_ZgOi70hDxnMHRoNm9CSE9fYmc&authuser=0
  8. Edited now that I'm back home... I started this mini on Friday, and tried to do a centre-out light-to-dark translucent paint job. The Badger Freak Flex tints just beaded up in an initial coat - even when adding medium it didn't help. I had nothing to get the centre yellow without going opaque which I didn't want to do at this point. I then took my Napthol Crimson (Red) Liquitex ink and added a drop to some medium and that went on fine. I forgot that Burnt Umber is very orange, and if I'd done that first I could have tried to do something interesting with the shadows in red. Oops! Attempts to highlight with that didn't do much at all. I decided to do a few quick washes with a mix of DIoxazine Purple and Prussian Blue, and got some nice shadows from that. I also daubed the eyes with a bit of Blue Flame from the KS2 paints. The next morning I took an update photo and noticed the great directional light from the window (inspiration pics below). After that I scrapped what I was doing and decided to try and paint the highlights that I saw in the photo. I used FIreball Orange HD (29806) and Gilded Yellow HD (29845) up to Gilded Yellow /True White (1:1). I'm especially happy with how the back turned out - I think that's partly because the blue/purple shadows really pushed the contrast more. I also didn't want to do half the face in bright yellow... so I didn't. This mini photographs MUCH better than it looks in hand. If you can open 2 windows to compare side-by-side, it's recommended.

  9. Bonus mini for this months resolutionary challenge Based on previous postings, I guess this one also counts as NSFW. You Americans are so uptight about these things. Full frontal: https://maledrakh.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/150209-reaper-bones-fire-sprite-from-77196-familiars-2-front.jpg This is the fire sprite / small elemental / atronach from the 77196 Familiars 2 pack. I really struggle with fire and flames. I do think I am getting better even though still not very good. Definately need more practice.
  10. I was photographing something else yesterday. The something else ended badly. I was documenting it. Anyway, the Fire Elemental was nearby and the lighting setup looked promising so I let the camera have a try even though the LFE is notoriously hard to photograph. The Raw Image My phone has a small app on it from Adobe, and it has a selection of preset "effects" filters it can apply. I tried several, saved a few that looked fiery. The Filter That Looked Like Lava A Kind of Spot Lighting? Similar to Above But Darker Hope these are at least fun to look at or maybe inspiration if someone is wanting to paint fire.
  11. Hi everyone. I held on to some of the better miniatures from the Dragon Strike board game published by TSR in 1993. One of them was the Fire Elemental. I painted this on up as "Fantasy Fire," so I can paint the Reaper Bones fire miniatures as "Real Fire" to see which looks better. I personally think our eyes like seeing "Fantasy Fire" better, as it is dark below/deep and bright above/surface, the way we usually see miniatures. Besides, fire elementals are based on magic, not burning hydrocarbons, so they can put their hottest face forward to toast up little adventurers ;P If the elemental plane of fire was based on burning hydrocarbons, it would have burnt out by now! The orginal base was sawed off. I put it on a 25mm slotta-base topped off with some Plastruct ® O Scale "Polished Stone." For anyone who hasn't found Railroad Styrene, give it a shot: There are lots of different patterns to choose from. I tried to give the effect that the elemental was the light source, (with shading the stones outward circumferentially) and put in some OSL with lava orange. Let me know what you think.
  12. I bought Tamiya clear yellow, green and orange and played around with the female bones fire elemental (77083) and the bones grave wraith (77097). The yellow/orange hardly shows at all on the red bones, but the green Tamiya clear turned out ok on the green wraith.

    Fire (elemental) and Ice (giant)

    Finally able to get a good picture of my large fire elemental. That material is the stuff photobombs are made of. My frost giant got a Crackle treatment on his base, next time I'll use more though...

    Fire Elemental meet Novelty Lamp

    Hi everyone, It's my first post to the forums so I thought I might show off the Fire Elemental I've hacked using a novelty fibre-optic lamp I picked up in a discount store. There's a more detailed "How To" on my blog, and a video showing the illumination effect. Enjoy Roleplay-Geek

    translucent fire elemental

    As I mentioned elsewhere, I have been working on mounting my large fire elemental on a base incorporating an LED 'tealight candle' Up until today that has mostly been a matter of gathering the bits andmaking a plan. Today though the plan has begun to come together. Of course as I am writing this, I realise I have yet to take a picture of the base by itself. Oh well,next time. Here it is though, showing the elemental sitting on the base (mounting points haven't been added yet) giving an idea on how it's going to look.
  16. What's this? Shadowraven attempting to do a WIP? Why yes,that is exactly what it is. Let's see if I remember to take pictures as I go. So awhile ago, my favorite though saddly not so local game store had a box of old Partha minis on for half off. Of course I picked up a few. This guy was the first I decided to paint. Primed white, seemed like the way to start. I have however decided, in the future, I will use a spray primer on guys with as many nooks and crannies as this. Picture showed spots I missed, I think I got it all now, but if I find a missed spot as I go,I will not be surprised. and the first layer of what I am certain will be many. Sun yellow mixed 50/50 with pure white, and thinned with equal parts water to paint. It is odd, going from white down into colour rather than highlighting up to white. I am going to try and bring it up through to fire orange, but I am wanting to make him look extremely hot, and bright, which is different from the few other fire effects I have ever tried, which were more of an orange/red/black. For those in the know, is there anything I should do to make him seem to glow from within?
  17. A friend of mine found a old miniature from the nineties. It is from the Magic The Gathering Card Game. I'm not sure which company made them. I'm still sad that I didn't have the others anymore. I bought it many years ago, but could not start to paint it. I have little experience with fire, now. But it still make me problems to paint this mini... I need some ideas, how to proceed or to start again to paint this miniature. I never found a picture with a painted version of her. :-(
