  1. Took a break from other things to get back to basics, and also try a few things out. Here’s Feiya: This was a quick and simple job, an attempt to work on picking out details as well as experimenting with various paints. I decided to go with assorted primary colors mostly (as I don’t really have much else). You can’t really see the highlights in these pics, mostly because I hardly did any. I started with a wash of Brown Liner, which turned out surprisingly well. Leaf Green was used for the cape and Blood Red on her leathers. I think she’s holding a fireball but I went with Sapphire Blue, so now it’s more of a Faberge egg. The wrappings on her staff are Sun Yellow with some whites, and boots and head jewelry were done with metallics. Her socks are Linen White, but white cloth is apparently something I need more work on. Finally, the base was given a layer of Ginger Cookie over the liner. It isn’t the prettiest work ever, but it turned out better than I’d expected. Most importantly, it gave me an idea of what to work on and which colors I’ll need to think about acquiring in the future.
  2. I speed-painted these over two afternoons to be a party of NPC adventurers for an eclectic mash-up of Exalted and the World of Darkness. They are 77322, Kassandra of the Blade (sculpted by Werner Klocke); 77405, Aeris, Female Elf Ranger (sculpted by Julie Guthrie); as-yet unnumbered Mythos figures based on 50032: Jake Ryan, Hero Explorer (sculpted by Bobby Jackson) and the Victorian Lord from the set 50326: Victorian Lord & Dame (sculpted by Bob Ridolfi); and 77409, Flara, Elf Heroine (sculpted by Werner Klocke). WIP thread here.
  3. Hajad is another sacrife to the toy box level painting (ie. ignore moldlines and any advanced techniques) in my quest to find the "right" zombie skin tone. This time based with 50/50 MSP Vampiric skin and VMC Basic Skin Tone. Covered with a wash of Army Painters blacker colored Dark Tone Ink. This is getting closer to what I want and might be right on with a wash using a brown ink like Strong Tone. I am going to find another sacrificial mini to try a 50/50 mix of the vampiric skin with VMV Dark Fleshwith a brown wash. I think that will give me the grey undead color I want ith enough caucasian skin to look like a fresher conversion to the zombie lifestyle. I like this model, so will need to look at getting him in metal at some time. For now this one will be used as a ghost pirate in a Hero Kids adventure with my four year old. Thoughts and comments greatly appreciated.
  4. So I started working on this guy back in March, he was just basecoated with the pattern established (which was based on Rhonda Bender's beautiful example.) This afternoon I decided to pull him off of the Shelf of Shame and finish him up. I should've gone a size up on the base. And as usual, my pictures are terrible but I'm tired. C&C always very welcome.
  5. While I have been painting realistic wolves, I have also been working on some of the gorgeous giant wolfmen sculpted by Julie Guthrie for the Koborlas faction in Reaper's "Warlord" game. This is #14528, the subtly-named "Rageclaw Slayer", or the testosterone-poisoned werewolf a friend of mine requested. He's a big puppy; I include a copy of Reaper's 60164, Vampire Hunter, for scale: This is my standard priming of a thin layer of Titanium White followed by a thin wash of diluted Burnt Umber, using my favorite Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. I left the base white in order to paint it as snow. Those who have been following my regular wolf painting thread will recognize the steps here. First I mixed a cool neutral grey from Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White and painted it on his limbs, face, and belly: Then I mixed a darker version of the same grey and painted his back and tail: Then I mixed a cream-buff color from Burnt Sienna, Yellow Oxide, a tiny bit of Ultramarine Blue to take the orange edge off, and Titanium White, and went over his face, limbs, and belly again: And finally I took some pure Carbon Black (a color I rarely use except for special effects) and laid in his eyes, nose, lips, and claws (Although I just noticed I missed his toe claws. Oh, well, next time.). I also washed a little diluted black over his darker fur, most noticeable on the parts of the tail I had missed earlier: He still looks rough and terrible, especially up close, but I have to admit I am rather pleased with the overall color impression.
  6. This is a fresh start for a thread I feel I knocked off kilter. I feel it may be justified in that I've finally started actually painting the creature. This is Reaper's 14532: Aislinn, Shadow Tracker, a large werewolf (the base is a 40mm square) from the Koborlas faction in their Warlord game. I had a request from a player for a werewolf who can shift genders and appear gender ambiguous, and this seemed a good place to start. The sculpt is meant to be female, but it is lean and muscly and not over-bosomy. I filed it down somewhat and off we go. ... I don't seem to have done my usual practice of documenting the priming (a light coat of thinned Titanium White and a wash of Burnt Umber on the creature only, leaving the base white for snow), so here is the first layer. I decided to paint this one as a white wolf. I've observed that "white" wolves are actually a creamy light brown, so that's how I've painted this one. The color is mixed from Yellow (Iron) Oxide, Burnt Umber, a bit of Ultramarine Blue to tone down the brightness, and Titanium White. It came out a sort of dull buff, a good blonde color. The color is laid on thin and translucent. Where the Burnt Umber underneath shows the color shifts to a sort of bluish shadow. I indicated the nose, eyes, lips, and claws with Carbon Black. I don't use pure black much, but I needed a little facial indication to work from. Had a little blue on my palette, so I swished in some snow shadows. These are two mixes: Phthalo Blue with a tiny bit of Hansa Yellow Opaque and a great deal of Titanium White; and Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White.

  9. My GM needed a party of NPCs fast for a game of Exalted set in the World of Darkness (think fantasy characters popping up in a modern day world, more or less). There was no time to order anything, but we had the handy new Bones III core and Mythos sets. These are the Bones minis 77322, Kassandra of the Blade (sculpted by Werner Klocke); 77405, Aeris, Female Elf Ranger (sculpted by Julie Guthrie); as-yet unnumbered Mythos figures based on 50032: Jake Ryan, Hero Explorer (sculpted by Bobby Jackson) and the Victorian Lord from the set 50326: Victorian Lord & Dame (sculpted by Bob Ridolfi); and as a free bonus 77409, Flara, Elf Heroine (sculpted by Werner Klocke), who was simply a "Vale Swordsman Elf Grunt" in metal (she was the first character picked for the one represented by Kassandra of the Blade, and I painted her up anyway as an extra and useful figure). I painted these really fast -- for me -- in two afternoons, one to prime and paint faces and one to paint the rest of them. It's not quite my one-hour robot speed paint, but for me it was super fast and the results are more tabletop-quality than my usual run. First I washed and primed all the Bones with Reaper's Brown Liner. I did not clean flash up as much as normal owing to the tight deadline. Skin work, using simple mixes of earth pigments plus white: Burnt Umber (for the darker skin tones), Burnt Sienna (for the pinker, lighter skin tones), Red Iron Oxide (for really pink skin) ,and Yellow Ochre plus Titanium White. Hair was laid in with the same palette plus Carbon Black. Rough shading with ruddy Burnt Sienna-Titanium White shadows and greyer Burnt Umber-Titanium White shadows. This character, a former Fae, has dramatic blue-streaked hair. This is a classic mix of Phthalocyanine Blue and enough Titanium White to make it opaque.
  10. Hi everyone, it is my great pleasure today to show you my 02712, Eyebeast. It was sculpted by Julie Guthrie and can also be found in the 10031, Dungeon Horrors Box Set. I added tthe eyestalks on each side of its head. The eyestalks are from Reaper Miniatures 03440, Creature Components II. I intend to add some drool dripping from its maw. It should also be part of a diorama of horrors I have in mind.
  11. This is another PC for the campaign of "Exalted" set in White Wolf's World of Darkness that I am involved in. The character is a Scottish mage from the Sons of Ether who is essentially a therapist for would-be reformed vampires and werewolves. At the beginning of the game he Exalted as a Twilight-caste Solar. (If this means nothing to you don't worry about it.) The figure is Julie Guthrie's delightful "Benedict Baker", a highly versatile gentleman. There's a WIP thread here.
  12. I rediscovered this metal mini in one of my stored basement boxes the other day. I have no idea why I did not paint it back in the day. One quick paint job later: 02712: Eye Beast Reaper miniatures sculpted by Julie Guthrie white metal 40mm base

  14. From the second Bones kickstarter: the cute lil' Basilisk. You dont want it to look at you. Another quick paint job. 77371 Basilisk Reaper Bones KS 2 Sculted by Julie Guthrie Bonesium PVC 40mm base
  15. Here's 01539, Gil the Chibi Sea Monster aka Chibi Tiik, Special Edition Bonesylvanian Figure sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I converted this one so he will look like a deep sea monster more than a swamp monster. The idea for the modification came to me after seeing a psychedelic painting of the Creature from the black lagoon. The light effect on the face inspired me to convert Gil into a Tiik "deed sea monster" like creature with the light from his lure lighting up its face. So was born Chibi Tiik. Here's the link to the Converting/Painting WIP. I hope you'll enjoy. As always, comment and critics are very welcome.
  16. 01541, Drak the Chibi Bat Special Edition Bonesylvanian Figure sculpted by Julie Guthrie.
  17. 01538, Lon the Chibi Werewolf sculpted by Julie Guthrie. Special Edition Bonesylvanian Figure painted with classic fashion colors.
  18. Continuing the creature feature, here are the great big Barrow Rats: Not quite undead but thoroughly nasty anyhow. These will see use as wardogs in Frostgrave. 77198: Barrow Rats Reaper Bones KS2, base set Sculpted by Julie Guthrie Bonesium PVC 30mm bases
  19. Started work on this lady a couple days ago. She's beautiful but right now I'm finding myself with very little enthusiasm for painting. I suspect it'll go away soon, but in the meantime I'm at least making sure I get a minimum of 10 minutes per day of painting in, so there's slow but steady progress. Anyway, here she is so far! Her hair is going to get a wash or two of black so it should end up looking more black than blue. Same with her wings. Thoughts? Suggestions?
  20. This is a bones Faceless Horror I did for my Dungeoneers collection. I am working on getting some other pieces, like slimes ans such, completed to give a friend for Christmas. He was talking to me recently about not having certain unique monsters for a dungeon he is working on, so I thought I would help him. He listed several that he wanted to get, and I was fortunate enough to have most of them. So, here is the first of about 7-8 that I am planning for him. Hope you like it! CAH
  21. I got the Sea Hag in a bonus pack during last year's Hallowe'en promotion and just got around to painting her up. (Well, starting to paint her up anyway.) Thankfully I looked up Pingo's WIP thread where she commented on some of the details I'd missed, like the starfish on the back of the left leg and the crab on the back of the right arm! (Although I did clue in to the octopus... I'm blind, but not that blind... ) This makes two Julie Guthrie sculpts in a row for me (the last one was the Christmas hoard dragon) and I gotta say, I'm loving her work more with each one. So many details, but of just the right size and style that they're incredibly fun to paint rather than being tedious. And really forgiving of the terrible paint jobs I'm applying! I should point out that I'm still at the stage of finish up the base coats and starting to sketch in highlights. I'm not quite this incompetent. First, the obligatory front and back view: And now a few close-ups of the details! I broke out the big camera and the macro lens for these... please forgive the horrifyingly awful paint jobs you'll see. The crab on the back of the right arm: The starfish on the back of the left leg: The octopus on the left arm: (And yes I realise I missed like half of the top tentacle. Imma fix that in a few.) Anywho... Thoughts? Suggestions on colour scheme? Etc.
  22. Alistair looked at the ring he had discovered in his master's study. The etching upon it have him some idea of how it worked, and he could not wait to test it out. He placed the ring upon his finger, and dove from the cliff into the quiet sea below. It took only a moment, and the magic took hold. He could breath underwater, just as easily as he could sitting at the table studying. He glided through the blue-green waters of the Glistening Straight, sinking deeper and deeper. Soon, he could see barely a foot in front of his face. Weaving a simple light spell, he illuminated the immediate area. As he touched down on the ocean floor, he was filled with excitement. What treasures lurked here, unseen for so long. He moved towards a large shadowy outcropping, discovering the remnants of a ship. Excitement again washed over him as he scrambled into the hold. In the distance, a faint pin point of light, just out of his illuminated radius. As he moved towards it, it seemed to withdrawl. Canceling his own source, he began to swim towards the faint light. Slowly it grew brighter. Suddenly, it was bright as a flash and he was stunned, captivated by the beauty of it. Until he felt the claws dig into his side. He tried to scream but was cut short. Darkness consumed him, and then silence. I painted this one up as a continuation of an underwater scenario I am planning for my players. There are now six of these in total that I will be painting. This was the first that I completed today while chatting on the hangouts. Hope you like it! CAH
  23. The derelict vessel had been adrift for weeks. Food stores aboard the Serpent's Gaze had all but dried up, and the men were becoming volatile. "Land!! Off the starboard bow!! Land!", the cries rained down from the crow's nest like tears from the heavens. The captain gave the order, and the anchor was dropped. This island, from what they could see, had lumber.. lots of lumber. The shallows, however, would not hold the ship, and they could not risk being beached. A decision was reached that the first mate, Bulgrit, would take six members of the crew, and find a place to make camp. Then, they would begin the search for food, and lumber to make the repairs needed for the ship. The longboat was lowered, and the men rowed towards their salvation. Barely sixty yards from the ship, a scratching was heard and felt along the botton of the longboat. The water was still to deep for it to be coral. The scratching again, followed by a sudden thump. "Fear not lads, its likely a ..." and the longboat was capsised. From the ship, the men could hear the screams of terror and pain, as their shipmates fought for their lives. The waters churned, a sick bloody froth floated about the area, and the cries fell silent. It was over in a matter of minutes. "That weren't no shark..." I have a few of these to paint up for an underwater scenario I am running for my group. There are a few other aquatic themed bits that will go along with them, but this was the first one I completed. Hope you like it! CAH
  24. I had a the fortunate opportunity to paint a piece for Teskeria. I began the project with a concept of a shifter type character, a werecat. Searching through Reapers catalog of minis, I came upon this one. It clicked. And so, Thirysia was born. I had a lot of fun painting these two. I can not, however, take credit for the basing idea. During the Spring Mini Exchange, I received a ranger/wolf combo from Guildenstern that was done similarly. I liked the idea so much, that I used it for this one. I felt it fit too well not to. Thiryrsia was once a respected and noted ranger among the Shadowvale Elves, but a chance encounter would forever change her. Seeing her as cursed, she was cast out of the community, and left to fend for herself. Over time, she learned to control her shifting, and is no longer bound by cycles. With her Redmane companion, Xythis, she stalks the Shadowvale Forest as its most feared and fearsome protector. Here she is, Thirysia, Redmane Werecat, and Xythis her Redmane companion. (Note, the Redmane's are an elven hunting cat I use in my homebrew campaign.) CAH
  25. Don't Look Ethel!!! Too late... she was turned to stone! Ok, maybe not, but that's what this little guy is known for. This, like the lemures I posted earlier, are part of a collection I am doing for a local convention. This basilisk was inspired by the Pathfinder RPG basilisk, thus the green and yellow color pattern. Hope you like him! CAH
