  1. Hey I'm attempting something crazy for Gen con this year, and I need a little help. I am doing a diorama for the MHE painting competition, and the title for the piece is kind of an important part of it. Is it common or acceptable to have the title engraved to put on the base? If not, what is a good way to make the title known? This is something I've never done before so any advice (including general diorama advice would be appreciated. I wasn't planning on doing a WIP, just puting the picture up in Show off after Gen con assuming I get it done in time.
  2. I went to reference one of these minis in another thread and I found I never posted them up here. Looks like I stopped taking photos of my speed painted minis. Usually I do try to take a picture of them before I do touch ups. But these are so old I have no idea if I did touch ups on them before I took the photos or not. However, I leave them here for your enjoyment. Each was painted at GEN CON in 45 minutes, with a communal brush and a limited selection of Reaper paints, and whatever light conditions where at the time. (Bright sunlight is usually the worst actually) *(Note, I think the painter cat is Impact... but it's been so long, I can't remember anymore!)
  3. So, just for fun, here's a shot from the Ringbearer game my brother and I hosted at Gen Con. The ents have been roused and march on the White Wizard's tower. We used a wide mix of vintage fantasy figures for this game, and the five ents here are from five different pre-1980 figure lines. This group is pretty good at identifying classic lead, so try your skills.
  4. Gen Con Badges go up today and Hotel shenanigans begin on Sunday! Who's all planning to go so far? The wife and I will be there. (assuming hotel shenanigans can be convinced to go our way again this year.)
  5. My Gen Con entry for this year. Overall I'm very happy with her. It's one of the best faces I've done so far. Had a lot of trouble assembling her though. The spear arm gave me fits as it snapped off several times and afterwards I couldn't seem to get it on straight and without gaps again. eventually I was able to fill it with a tiny amount of green stuff. Also had a little trouble pinning her to the base. You can tell she's not exactly flat on it, she actually floats a tiny bit above it and I just couldn't seem to fix it. Also she's leaning, less now than she was but she's still leaning. I tried to do some OSL with the parts of the spear near her hand but I just couldn't make it look right. So I abandoned that idea for now.
  6. My Iron wind speed paint. He was just a little guy but I liked him. However I was disappointed when I accidentally over washed him in black and it darkened his purple and red scales too much so that you couldn't really tell the colors. Normally I don't add any more paint a mini that's done, but I felt I needed to add some more purple when I got home to bring him closer to my original "vision".The "Before's" The "After's" I may base him up some day if needed but for now this is what he is.
  7. I really love the Stephanie Law line from Dark Sword Miniatures and Euterpe may be my favorite from the Kickstarter. She was among the first three I prepped and after ReaperCon I started to put some paint on her. I did post a couple pictures in the WIP group thread for the Stephanie Law pieces, but wanted to be careful as I planned on taking her to Gen Con and their rules ask that you do not post finished pictures prior to the show. Her foxy friends were already seen in this thread http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62924-dark-sword-standing-kirin-and-a-few-foxes/ prior to basing of course. Without further ado here are my best photos I could manage. I spoke with DixonGrfx at ReaperCon about Euterpe and was toying with the idea of painting her with sheer cloth, I am glad I decided to go ahead and try more sheer as I feel it worked much better the second time around and worked well on her. Her base was custom built on a wooden block that I took a hacksaw to the corner and added modeling paste, cork, putty and dental plaster rocks. Overall I am quite happy with how this piece turned out and I look forward to painting up a few more muses. Comments and Critiques always welcomed.
  8. Since I was attending Gen Con I knew I needed to make time to paint up an entry for Marike's Rainbow Brush. Why not paint up a miniature to support a great cause right. So with only a couple weeks to spare I chose to Paint up Ser Loras as Renly's Lord Commander Rainbow Guard. I am quite happy I managed to finish him in time, it was touching to see the community come together and it was quite clear at the show how much time and effort Marike put into this event. Presenting my humble entry to the Rainbow Brush and Lord Commander Ser Loras. Of course C&C is always welcomed. And a quick side note who knew painting a rainbow cloak would be so hard.
