  1. A while back I figured that no collection was really complete without a Sir Forscale and I thought I'd paint him in the colors of Figmentius. Eventually I'll do one for all the houses. I was pleasantly surprised how well the freehand on the Unicorn turned out. Tonight is also the first time using my new camera, and the photos turned out quite well after I figured out what a Macro was.
  2. 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
  3. Awright. With a little gloss on his pepper and a touch here and there on his armor. The peppers on the shield were HD Garnet Red, Gilded Yellow and Core fresh Blood, in no particular order. The big pepper is mostly Garnet Red and Fresh Blood. That little blush of dark is ... I think Nightshade Purple with a little Peacock Green over it. Armor and shield border is all metallic; I'm liking Scorched Metal as a bronze (greaves, pauldrons, guantlets and helm), and I'm really quite thrilled with the way it came out. I had fun with the painting and modifications on this; the pepper was particularly fun to build. However simple, it was just challenging enough that I feel like I really did something. I got it SHINY. I am pleased. ^^;
  4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FF5C04CB-VQ I did it! Finally, my first Show Off thread ever for something that wasn't just for my personal enjoyment! And did I ever pick a big project to do it with. This one had stretched my meager skills to the limit, but I managed to finally complete it. WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/70091-77008-sir-hue-forscale-first-knight-of-polychromus-wippic-heavy/ From deep with the arcane workgrounds of Castle Polychromatic was forged Sir Hue ForScale, First Knight of Polychromus, Guardian of the Halls of Spectra, Measurer of Magniftints, Watcher of the Seen and Unseen. A construct specially created to protect the Papal Realms from eldritch horrors, he is the shepherd of Colours Out of Space. You could say that he's their................designated drover. To you, my friends, I unveil my creation!: His shield is adorned with the Grinning Lizard, crest of Pezler the Polychromatic, representing him no matter where he goes ( and to advertise the Grinning Lizard Tavern; Tuesdays are half off Polychromatic Fizzys!). Below that to represent the SpacePope he serves is the Sacred Hat, whose very presence has the power to make people intone the mystical words, "Hey, Bryan's here!" Protected by the Tabard of the Tumbling Cosmos, he goes out in search of threats to the integrity of the spectrum, without which all paint would have no colour, making our hobby pretty darn dull. He smites foes with a sword created from the carapace of the Giant Iridescent Killer Rainbow Beetle (Arcus pluvius popsiclus), bringing new colour to the villains of the realms ( the colour he usually makes them is 'dead'). His eyes watch over the spectra both seen and unseen, keeping you all safe from those who would rob your paints of all colour( or just rob your paints; I'm looking at you, Buglips). To enhance his powers, he has been suffused with the essences of several forumites to give him their strengths: the purple boots of OneBoot, for her stompy powers against the tiny eldritch horrors (but how can they be two boots when her name is Oneboot, you ask? OneBoot2=OneBoot. Simple polychromathemagics.); Guindyloo Blurple among the speckles for her face-huggy abilities; tangerine for Buglips, Emperor of Mooning, he who actually bleeds paint; Blood for the Blood God paint on the sword gems for ub3r_n3rd, he who helps bring the smackdown; And the Grinning Lizard, who was created long ago from modifying a sketch of a frog, which seems appropriate for Froggy the Great. I had a blast creating this figure for the contest, and it certainly put my meager skills to the test. I have enjoyed a year on the forums, and I want to thank everyone who encouraged me to keep doing this. I'm afraid I couldn't get the last updates for my WIP, since I wanted to make sure that I finished in time. There's a lot of different paints added since the last update, but I don't think it's worth mentioning them unless someone asks. I did, however, add eyes for him using a touch of interference blue in each socket. I think that Sir Hue is the only Forscale that actually has eyes. PM and email has been sent to ReaperBryan, so it's all good now. Will do some touching up here and there before he gets shipped out, but he will join his brethren soon enough. The Sir Hue will remain vigilant over you all, to keep your tones, tints and shades safe. He is always watching.............
  5. This will be more of a 'admit I painted him' thread than a Show-Off. But here are some pix:
  6. I've finally decided to get my boot in gear and paint up my submission to Reaperbryan's Sir Forscale competition: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69934-sir-forscale-painting-competition/ I'll be painting him up in the traditional Papal Guard colors of dark green and gold, using mostly metallics because SHINY. First set of pictures! EDIT: I can't get my pictures to work; apparently, Google Photos killed Picasa web albums for good sometime earlier this week. Have this picture of a cat instead while I try to get it figured out. EDIT EDIT: I've found a truly grotesque workaround for now, which I've used for these first two pics. Further pictures in this thread will have to wait until I work out something better. His tabard and glove are all Reaper paints, starting with Rich Green and highlighting through various combinations of Rich Green, Christmas Wreath, Grass Green and Clear Green, in that order. Before the final Clear Green highlight, I did a Grass Green wash to tie it all together. I may do one final highlight to really make it look nice, but it's decent as-is. The gold edging is P3 Solid Gold, and it is SO SHINY YOU GUYS HAVE NO IDEA. I mean, uh, hey look at that awesome NMM I totally did. Yeah. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  7. ReaperBryan is a meanie. Here I was with a Garrick the Bold Figure that I was going to paint up as Sir Forscale, all safely tucked away until I thought I had the talent to replicate such a feat. And then He comes around with a painting competition for that exact figure, forcing my hand. Forced, I say! I have never done so much planning for a colour scheme in my life, I hope to do it justice and I've been taking notes from those who have gone before me. And so begins the creation of Sir Hue Forscale, First Knight of Polychromus, Sentinel of Spectra, Measurer of Magnifitints. Here goes nothing! All pictures taken will be from my new phone, I hope it does a better job than from my iPad mini: Alright, looking crisp, though the whites are a little too bright. I used Reaper Brown Liner to coat the entire thing, then put on Reaper Pure black to cover it. I though I had diluted the black too much, but then I realized that it's a really concentrated paint, so it all turned out pretty good. ..............and now I found some mould lines. Alright, work on those first, and then some speckling is in order.
  8. So here is my second Sir ForScale, representing House Tabletop... He will be going to Texas to meet the Great Kaiju soon... Thanks for looking!!!! George WiP here
  9. Sir Forscale of House Procrastius, knight the fourth, shielding himself with a for scale, armed with a ruler for scale. I've never actually used greenstuff before (and yes I know he's on his base, the sealer wasn't completely dry at this point, so base-less pics after) From bottom of his foot to top of the ruler is actually the height of the sword tip (maybe off by a fraction of a mm)
  10. I said.... Posted Yesterday, 09:59 AM And of course, since Morihalda is going to paint up the House Procrastius Version, I decided that House Tabletop needs one as well.... (Glad I ordered 2 of them!) So here he is after the emblem was sculpted on the shield... Much easier than sculpting hands! Need to touch up the grey liner, then give him a coat of white primer tomorrow.... George
  11. I started this little guy on a Saturday. At a paint day. At a certain factory... This is where he got to in about 4 hours worth of work. Need to finish the sword. The lad at the factory store went in the back and dug through bins to find one with a nice, straight, unbent sword. So, I figured this one ought to be left stock and unconverted.
  12. For once I think this mini looks better on camera. It is more blue in person. Still I am pretty happy with it. All the "black" bits are nmm. It gets better each try
  13. I'm pretty happy with the white, less so with his emblem on his chest. I don't know if it's my eyes or the bones but I couldn't get clean lines on it no matter how I tried sigh. Anyway, it was fun to do bright metals for once, instead of rusty (as per my usual worn armour/Skaven stolen goods type!) So he looks like he's a shiny new adventurer!
  14. Here are my two entries for the Sir Forscale competition. I wasn't going to make a show off post for them, but since we're trying to cut out chatter in that thread, I thought if people wanted to give any feedback (C&C is always very welcome!) that this would be the best place for people to do that. This was my first time painting the dreaded colour black...I think I was relatively successful, at least in the back. I found the front part of the cloth on him a bit difficult to pick out where highlights should be. My first one is, naturally xenomorph inspired.... Sir Xenoscale? And the second one is Blurple and has a flower crown because, why not? Sir ForBlurple? The flowers are made out of Sculpey. Let me know if you want to know any paints that I used. C&C always very welcome!
  15. Alright. So, I decided I was going to play too. Why not? It's fun, and Mr. Bold is not large. Very relaxing, after Khanjira. >.> Anyway. We all know what the original looks like, so... on to the modification! My GS-fu is still pretty weak, but I pulled some out and mushed it about and began sculpting a credible pepper over Mr. Bold's sword. Because, really, why cut it off if it provides a functional armature?! After some wrapping and squishing and delicate tool use (I suspect one of said tools is visible there in the background), I had the start of a functional sort of pepper. And not even too long. Although I realized that I was going to have to add some more to the base... So, I did. And then I glued Mr. Bold to a handle (I use soda bottle lids, myself), and tweaked his pepper a little bit. Thickened the end, trimmed some bits off his sword so that it better approximates a stem, that sort of thing. Ready to paint! Just need to get some primer on the green stuff, because I sort of had it in my head that to be properly seasoned, the pepper has to be red. >.>
  16. I've taken Reaper's 77373: Cuth Wolfson, Barbarian and merged his arms and helm with the body of 77008: Garrick the Bold along with a metal axe from one of Reaper's weapons packs to create this monstrous warrior of Great Renown! This is now Sir Garrick Wolfson the Mighty-Thewed! So far after attaching everything I added some greenstuff to the bottom to make a 1 inch base for him to steady him out as he's a little front heavy now. Hopefully Bryan like it and won't mind, it can easily be sliced off if not. Doing this as Bryan is running the contest for Sir Forscale, but I need to be original and true to myself as a lover of all things barbaric! The primer is actually Reaper Grey Primer mixed with Reaper Grey Liner. I find this to be a good mix for bones and metal.
  17. I painted this fella up over the course of PaizoCon while hanging out at Reaper's Paint n' Take table! I've meant to paint Sir Forscale up for a long time now, and I also wanted to paint something in the official Space Pope colors of purple and teal, so this seemed like the opportune moment. These are the best pictures I could manage under the circumstances; I would take better ones, except that he is now in ReaperBryan's possession! It's going to bug me to the end of forever that his sword is just sliiiiightly crooked, and there wasn't anything I could do about it. :P Colors used were: Twilight Purple, Tropical Aqua, Oiled Leather, Solid White, Solid Black, Blade Steel (a new Bones paint), Clockwork Brass, the Moss triad, a lovely deep bronze from Citadel that a fellow painter loaned me, and ReaperBryan Sky Steel. The pictures are doing a poor job of picking it up, but the armor is done entirely in Sky Steel, and it's a lovely light blue silvery color. I wish I'd done at least a quick wash into the crevices I covered up to redefine them, but I ran out of time. The highlighting on his tabard is a bit of a mess because there weren't many sculpted folds in it, and I'm hopeless at figuring out where highlights should go without some guidance from the sculpt. I eventually had to call it good enough because my fiddling with it was starting to make it worse rather than better. I'm overall fairly pleased with how he came out, especially given that the lighting, while good, wasn't optimal. Also that I was limited to what paints were at the table, plus a double handful of what was on my desk already from working on Kally. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
