  1. The Series continues with the merriest mini of the lot, the Bones 3 Fire Giant Jailor, joining the Joten Horde of Thrym! Now, after sitting on my desk since pulling him from his plastic bag and dry fitting him together, I've been considering what to do with him. The first thing was the weird shaped integral base ... that needed to be fixed. So I dug around for a base to place his base on and settled for one of the large rounds from the same Bones kickstarter. Now, how best to expand upon the stone work of the integral base or was I going to have to dump it altogether and just use the giant. Well, I decided that I liked it a lot but the strange shape was a pain so I cut back the piece to the straight edges along one side. Then using some architectural samples I have a ton of, I proceeded to make new tiles and intentionally break them. They are 1/8" thick (3.2mm) and 2" x 2" in size. After cutting them into squares, breaking them into bits is easy. The rest was just a matter of doing tile work and gluing them in place. I grouted the piece with some Loctite Craft Glue. It's heavy duty and fills in nicely ... see below. After a little sanding to remove the excess glue and roughing the edges, I used a hobby blade and carving tool to clean and define some of the lines in the integral base to better match the new tiles. I also flipped one of the cut away segments from the front for the edge on the left side of the piece (near the top of the pic). Once that was dried and cleaned, I cleaned and glued the giant together and added him to the base. I have to do a little filling of gaps and I did glue the chain down to the tiles so it lays across the ground as if it is landing there. I just have to improve the pin for the dagger on his back belt and settle the keg on the hook off his belt. Then I can coat and prime him and begin his paint job. I'll stick to my Fire Giant Skin Triad ... As used with the Dungeons & Dragons Fire Giant I did last year. Of course, the Jailor of the Fire Giants won't be nearly as pristine as one of their Elite Guards, so you can expect a lot of grunge and prolly some soot. As always, Enjoy and Stay Tuned.
  2. 02607: Bjorn, Dwarven Warrior

    Started doing NMM again after almost half a year painting my Skaven AoS army. What do you all think? Thanks in advance for any advice or criticisms.
  3. Here is my newest finished miniature. This is my first real stab at human-like faces and eyes. It was really fun and totally nerve-wracking! It was also my first real foray into basing. I had a ton of fun with this one and am really happy with how it turned out. I showed it to my buddy who plays this character and he loved it, mission accomplished! Thanks for checking him out. C&C welcome as always. -WhatsEcstacy
  4. Kommander Sorscha

    A buddy gave me his Khador army for Warmachine. While I figure out exactly how I want to paint my stompy robots, I thought I'd paint up one of my warcasters. The red actually fairly easy, if time-consuming. Once I started going for details, it was a little harder. I originally went with red with brown leather (now only on the gun holster), but it was looking pretty muddy. I changed it to black for the most part, but the details were really getting lost. Changing a lot of the black to purple really helped get things to pop. I used a lot of Scale75 paints, using their red and Metal 'n Alchemy sets. The rest was done primarily with Reaper paints, with a few Games Workshop washes. The base was looking very plain until I added in some vegetation. I think it helped with the framing pretty well.
  5. Grand Master Voldus

    Presenting Grand Master Voldus, he's a special character from that Gathering Storm campaign thing Games Workshop have had going on recently. Still haven't worked out how to paint Space Marine armour properly, but he was fun to work on. As always, any comments or criticisms, are warmly received.
  6. 77023: Barnabas, Human Warrior

    My eternal struggle with NMM. But I'm worse with metalics, so I have to improve at least one technique. I hope it looks like an armor to you. I painted this guy for friend - his PC C&C always welcome.
  7. Mighty Grum, Red Box Games

    Mighty Grum from Red Box Games. A really cool mini I finished while working through my huge backlog of RBG minis. He's quite small so I didn't bother (or rather I can't do it) with the eyes. I'm happy with how the skin and his fur coat (although it seems abit dull in the photo) worked out.
  8. Townsfolk - Blacksmith, Reaper Bones

    A quick and dirty version of the Bones Blacksmith I did a while ago. Nothing fancy, basically basecoat + wash + abit of highlight on some stuff.
  9. 60177 Crowe Iconic Bloodrager

    Finally got around to this guy. I wonder how effective that hammer would actually be.
  10. Chisel (Guild Ball)

    I got lured into buying a Guild Ball team recently, since it's the new hotness around here, doesn't cost very much to get into, and has nice models. Actually, I was just going to pick up Chisel here, but the store was having a 20% sale, which is practically free, so I had to get the rest of the team to support her. Chisel works for the Mason's Guild, thus her name and choice of weapon. Blue is the official color for the Masons, so I decided to keep that theme. Chisel has abilities like "Crazy," "Sadistic," and "Feel My Pain," so I decided to paint her like a crazy Asian girl from some Japanese horror flick or something. As usual, the camera is showing every speck of dust in perfect detail. The bases are the PVC ones from CMoN/Micro Arts Studios. Blood rendered in classic Tamiya Clear Red. Also, I think she kind of looks like an evil Mocha...
  11. Fun one to paint. His face had a mold line but I just worked with it.
  12. 02607: Bjorn, Dwarven Warrior

    A quick four-hour paint job for a D&D player at my local shop. This guy was fun to paint, and I didn't even notice the mountains on his shield until after I'd painted the bright yellow thunderbolts on top of them (oops). EDIT: The base hadn't quite dried when I took this picture. I went ahead and added some grass to it after.
  13. Lord-Relictor

    Presenting the Lord-Relictor, part of my Stormcast force from Games Workshops Age of Sigmar starter set, he's the "good guy" (he's wearing far too many bits of other peoples skeletons for me to actually consider him a good guy) counterpart of my previously shown-off Blood Secretor. Had a lot of fun painting him, apart from his ribbon-cape, hopefully no one can see any of the parts of it I left unpainted (just too hard to get into all the nooks and crannies). As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  14. Empire Captain

    Presenting an Empire Captain by Games Workshop, his WIP thread can be found here. Always liked the Empire faction with their fancy striped pants, and this guy was no exception. Had fun painting him too, except his cape (Grr... Capes! *Shakes fist angrily*). Came with a really tiny base, so I just gave him a basic grass one. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  15. 77089: Halbarand, Cleric

    In an effort to keep clearing out my Bones I models, I painted this guy today. Had a lot of fun with him. Side note: I hate spotting flaws as soon as I take pictures...
  16. 14146 - Fulumbar

    I can't resist well sculpted hair and tend to go overboard with painting it. Luckily this fella was for tabletop so I think I stopped at 7 colors. Maybe.
  17. So a while ago I painted Trista as a paladin with a warhammer I took from Halbarand the cleric. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/51436-trista-conversion-wip/?hl=trista It was my first conversion, and she's seen a lot of game time. Now that she's a 5th level paladin, I wanted to make a mounted version of her. Back during the Bones 2 Kickstarter there was a suggestion from multiple people to just take one of the mounted Bones, cut them off at the waist and glue the top half of the mini you wanted a mounted version of. Since Sir Danel from Bones 2 had some <ahem> issues with his top half, I figured it was the perfect candidate. There are a few challenges with this project that I can spot so far. First off, Trista has a very narrow waist. Her belt is also at a bit of an angle, which will complicate things. At this point I think I might have to partially re-sculpt the belt to cover the seam where the surgery occurred. I'm actually thinking I'll start from the bottom up and get the horse painted first. I'd love a few opinions on what to do with the basing and whether or not the extra bit by the rear hoof needs to stay there for support. Currently the base is bent and Sir Danel won't stand, so obviously I need to at the very least heat-treat the horse. I've got a black plastic cavalry base, plus round bases in many sizes. I'm conflicted as to whether I want to make an epic looking base that fills most of a 2" area (for gaming purposes) or if I want to go with the cavalry base for a little stability and easier storage. I'd also like to up my basing game a bit, so all suggestions will be considered as long as they fit with a jungle locale. Since this is Bones, and for gaming, I'm not going to go crazy with a high quality display level paint job (which I probably couldn't pull off anyway) and I'll be aiming for higher tabletop quality. Saves my sanity.
  18. 06115 Dwarf Shield Maiden

    Another go at NMM. Hope you like it. But if you all could find the time to critique my work, it would be very much appreciated. Cheers!
  19. Custom 3D Printed Dwarf Paladin

    I posted another one of Heroforge's custom ordered 3D printed minis the other day, and I just finished another one. This one didn't have the texture issues that the other three I've painted did - the only place I really notice rough texture is on the back side of the shield, which is fine. This particular character is the Paladin in the party I DM for (5th Edition, homebrew campaign). The symbol on his shield represents his deity (goddess of light, sunburst symbol) and the dwarven homeland he's far from (mountains). He recently joined an in-game faction called the Queensguard, so their symbol & colors are painted on his right pauldron.
  20. Mounted Lord-Celestant

    Been digging through my Age of Sigmar starter box again, I present the leader of the good guys, the Lord-Celestant on his faithful Battle Lizard (they both have names, but I can't find the book to look them up at the moment). Really happy with how he ended up. Wasn't sure if going with a blue Battle Lizard was the best idea with all the other blue bits on the mini, but I think it helps balance out all the gold bits. Any comments and criticisms are, as always, greatly appreciated.
  21. Meet Bruendor Bloodmane. He will be leading my first warband for FrostGrave. This was also my first experience with actual washes and inks. Not too bad for my first go. **EDIT** Pic is fuzzy. I will try to upload a new one when I get home. Close up of the forehead for the rune. CAH
  22. I'm not sure what this guy's official name is and my google-fu has failed me. He's from the Heroes and Villains option in the Bones II KS.
  23. A Liberator

    To mirror the Bloodreaver I posted a little while ago, here's my test Liberator for the Stormcast Eternal half of my Age of Sigmar boxset:- Don't think he's as good as my Chaos dude, but then I'm not a big fan of the basic Stormcast troopers. I am pleased with how his armour turned out though (I was determined not to go with the official scheme of metallic gold armour, it would've made me lazy), even if it is pretty time consuming. As always, any comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated.
  24. Having fun painting my Age of Sigmar set, wasn't sure if there would be any interest in me WIPing the whole thing, so I thought I'd just do ones for the characters, in this case the Lord-Celestant from the Stormcast Eternal faction:- I've kept the Lord separate from his ride for ease of painting, and the lizard is what I'm working on first:- After undercoating (I've started mixing my Vallejo Black and White primers together to make a Grey primer that, so far, doesn't have any of their downsides), I started on the skin with a coat of Vallejo Royal Blue. Needs another coat or two, but I had a basing disaster with my Liberator and fixing that has been using up all my painting time
  25. 92764 Cult of Kirk Enforcer

    Hero or Villain? I would guess hero, just because almost everyone else in the Add On seems like a villain, but since I painted him in the "Cult of Kirk" scheme, and since cultists are usually evil, this guy is now a villain. Maybe he can be saved! This guy must have some sort of divine power to swing that hammer.
