  1. Here are a couple minis that I painted for a client a while ago but never got around to posting. From what I could tell, he plays a little bit of every faction.
  2. This was another entry in my year-end Conga Line of minis to finish. My husband gave me this whiskey (barrel) golem because it was made of wood and useful for a steampunk game he's running. This is Malifaux' WYR20603. (Apparently there is a slightly fancier version called the "Nightmare Whiskey Golem" which also has little goblin figures squirming all over it and drinking its leakage in disturbing fashions. I am just fine with this version, thanks.) This is the first polystyrene plastic figure I've ever put together. It was interesting, if fiddly. Here he is next to Reaper's 50016: Rosie, Chronotechnician for scale. Original WIP (from a while ago) here.
  3. So I figured I'd just start a WIP thread, rather than clutter up the forum with unnecessary extras. I hate disorder (although you wouldn't be able to tell that from looking at my workspace! LOL) This week's been mostly working on Gremlins from Malifaux, I have Somer, Slophaulers and Skeeters almost done. Still waiting on flying stand order to come in for Skeeters. Somer's the Bayou Boss, and I have other Bayou Gremlins in my pile of to-be-done but we'll see how long it takes me to get to them. Betrayal at Calth (BAC) is a GW box set of Space Marines that's both a board game and a kind of starter set for Horus Heresy 30k (which takes place before the Warhammer 40k sci fi - just for those who don't follow this). My LGS is doing an escalation league for 30k, and is running a contest for painting the box set. it's about 38 miniatures I think. Really hoping I win, even if I don't play the game because the prize is a free Horus Heresy book of our choice And I love books, even more than I love models so books about models... I'm THERE! Anyway here's my pics (except for the BAC which is still currently in its box lol) ^^ Slophaulers - because they, wait for it, haul slop Just finishing base really on these guys Somer - almost done, working on base now and just need cloth highlighted I think ^^ Skeeters (mosquitos) - trying out colour scheme, pretty much still basecoating although I did highlight their backs, wings and eyes (which still need glaze) Also trying to work on getting more lighting in my room for my light box :( so maybe my pictures will come out better =/ C&C is always welcome :) It helps me get better!
  4. Apologies in advance as some of these pictures I fear are a bit larger than I'd thought =/ I tried to crop them well enough for this forum but not sure how well I succeeded. These are the pieces I've made this year, pretty much originally for my swamp board, for Warhammer. However, once I started making them I realized it'd be a better idea to actually make them a bit modular, for all RPGs and other wargames (like frostgrave and malifaux). And it makes for a bit easier storage. Most of these pieces were inspired by the local swamps like Okefenokee here in GA. I find all these kind of areas just beautiful and full of so many unique features! These are some basic Ruins. I found using a foamboard for the base was not a great idea, it warped too much unfortunately. Here (below) a Swamp Pond, or bridge to terra firma as I've called it (couple different versions) My mausoleum piece. This is sort of in keeping with the ruins piece. It's meant to sit in a (obviously) drier part of the swamp, while getting inspiration from the swamp for plants etc. I'm working on two other pieces now (only in planning stages) - one is to be a more central piece of swampy land with lots of water areas and maybe(!) solid land parts, the second is going to be a kind of monster bird nesting spot, something like a marsh bird that nests near swamps. I plan on using pine straw (plentiful out here in GA) to make the "nests", something as yet undecided for 'eggs' and I'm looking for suitable figures for the bird monsters. The idea being a dangerous area PCs (or armies, in wargaming) may or may not want to wander into!
  5. I just finished painting a set of seven minis, and one of them is from Reaper, so I'm calling that enough justification to post a thread here. :P Here is my new Pathfinder character: Margie, an aquatic-themed summoner. She's sculpted from wire and Green Stuff. Being a summoner, she needed some fish to summon. First up is her former husband, George, who is a Malifaux Spawn Mother painted like a trout. Margie and George had three children before "the incident"-- Chauncey, Eustace, and Aloysius. The boys are now Malifaux Gupps, which are the greatest things ever created by industrialized society, painted like a sunfish, lake perch, and whatever the hell this is. The boys get lonely hanging out in the Time Out Dimension, so Margie acquired them a pet-- Princess the Coconut Octopus. Princess is a Reaper aquatic familiar. (SEE? SEEEE?! I PROMISED THERE WOULD BE A REAPER MINI IN HERE SOMEWHERE! XD) And finally, we have an agent of Margie's immortal nemesis, Klamptor: MANNY, THE DEMONIC (YET ALSO SPICY AND LATIN) DEATH-CRAB. Manny is sculpted from wire and putty. Full progress shots for Pirisca and lots more painted pictures are here. More painted shots of her fishfamily, as well as full progress shots for Princess and Manny, are here. Comments and donations of innocent souls to feed Manny are both welcome. <3
  6. Recently decided to paint up McTavish from Malifaux. I don't play the game, but I wanted to paint an alligator. Definitely gave my greens a workout on this one. I'm really happy with how the belly scales came out. I used tusk ivory and then the GW sepia wash, then re-highlighted with more tusk ivory and a little linen white.
  7. So here's one I did in honour of Halloween and for a FB contest (ala Troll's Den). He was finished a bit ago, I don't have good pictures of him, just my phone stuff. He's waiting for his friends :D I've since fixed his pose as it was pretty hard to figure out how to get him on the little stone wall he stands on, properly. First time really using purple as a main colour. I wanted to do something other than the usual black for bat type thing. And I started his shorts off as an orange, transitioning up closer to yellow. All of which was new and different for me! I like how some of the higlights on the body came out, not so happy with the shorts. These models are quite detailed and small and I had a hard time seeing tbh. Anyway, onwards and upwards, as they say!
  8. I've just comp'leted another model for my Malifaux Neverborn crew: Very quick paintjob, as usual, I have aimed just to a nice tabletop quality. Unable to decide on painting what’s on her hands as skin or as a towel, I chose a color similar to the skin tone, but lighter. So it could be both… Once finished, I alternated matte and gloss coat, to give contrast between skin and skinless parts. I think it looks nice. More pics: https://gabbigames.wordpress.com/2016/08/12/neverborn-doppelganger/ Comments will be welcome :)
  9. I'm on a devil kick at the moment. Wyrd's Lilitu (metal version). Anyone know who the sculptor is? The Cinnamon Red received as a freebie during the 12 days of Christmas sale is proving well suited to for devil skin. More pics/info on my blog.
  10. So I put this guy together today and painted him o.O bit of a quick job for me but he was really fun to paint. Still working on taking better pictures sigh. I was trying to get a good shot of his shirt because I did a little cute thing on it. But his arms kinda cast a shadow on it. Anyway, hopefullly it's still recognizable
  11. With apologies for another "20" joke. So one day I saw ol' Raphael LaCroix, and I was rather taken with him. A gunslinging goblin! Go figure. My brain started plotting. I ordered me a Raphael when I saw him on sale. Then a while later I saw Ophelia and Rami on sale. I had to have them. Then I saw Pere Ravage. And the gang was about complete. Next session we have (next weekend, knock on wood), my players will be having an old-school showdown straight out of the talkies. A village's children have been kidnapped by savage, but oddly crafty, goblins who've come by guns, not altogether scarce in our world . . . and some fancy duds. Generated them as NPCs using the ARG rules, and they are absolutely freakin' killer. Should be a great and challenging string of encounters for my group. I shot for "simple and done" with these, pretty much. They were a lot of fun, though. First up is Raphael LaCroix, aka Jathan. Leader of the gang, he's the meanest and deadliest 'slinger around. Next is Ophelia, aka Eloise. Nearly as deadly as her lover Jathan, she's also, she'll be quick to tell you, much sexier than he. One is wise to keep an eye on her at all times. Rami LaCroix, aka Dom, is perhaps the least speedy and experienced of his kin. What he lacks in mobility, however, he makes up for with the brutal use of his axe musket (not pictured) as he switches from firing shells to crushing skulls. Finally, Pere Ravage, aka Gibberz. Gibberz morphed around on me, going from modified grenade-slinging gunslinger to alchemist. I think it worked in his favor. The heart and philosophical soul of the gang, Gibberz is an immaculately dressed and crafty foe, using bombs and magic to strike and run. Some say there is another, a mysterious stranger who operates in the shadows to aid the gang . . . but for now this remains only a rumor. Thanks for looking!
  12. This was a quick paint job that I did to see if I could do a mini in one day. She was started when I volunteered at the Paint and Take at OrcCon where I worked on her for a few hours and then finished a couple of days later with another hour or two of work.
  13. So, my new project is mostly in my head at present, but I'll try to describe what I'm envisioning. I am making a terrain piece that is going to represent the Great Breach portal in Malifaux. For those who dunno, it's essentially a portal from our world into the other side, which is a very odd sci fi, gothic, horror, steampunky kind of dangerous world. At first to represent this, I thought I'd make an actual picture as if you'd see it through the portal. But, one that's not very terrain-y so to speak, plus I really think it's beyond my skills. So what I'd like to do is, on one side of the portal (Earth) I'm going to have everything look normal and bright. On the other side, I'd like it to look otherworldly, with mainly a dark colour over everything, and a lot of decay etc. This is going to be a 12"x12" board I will split, probably on a diagonal, so the Breach sits in the rough center, on the dividing line of the board/terrain piece. I have a car model I'm working on, that will be half way between the Earth side and the other side. So one half will look shiny and newish while the other... very much not. What I'm trying to figure out, of course, is how to do the dark side, otherworld side. I was thinking monochrome - not necessarily black, but maybe a very dark blue. Since I've never done anything like this before I was hoping I could pick the brains of all you more experienced painters How would you start to paint a dark world, how would you highlight or shadow it? Obviously I want it to actually be something you can see... but look like it's in darkess. Any help is appreciated!
  14. Gotta just call it done, here s/he is in all his/er glory (I dunno always thought it was a guy but lore calls out girl, whatev, it's a gremlin so it's up for debate)
  15. Dr. Philodendron Arkadius, my mutagen focused Alchemist. I wanted two different forms of the same mini to represent the transformation, and I dig this mini. He had a gun in his hand, and that didn't fit, so I lopped it off and make a potion vial out of green stuff. For the mutagen form, I was channeling Solomon Grundy from DC comics, hence the alabaster skin. I want to do some type of cool base for both, but haven't decided what yet. Might just do cobble stones, with a shattered vial on the ground of the mutagen form, Arkady. Human form! Mutant Form!
  16. Just finished these tonight - or well almost, as I was taking this pic, I realized I'd forgotten one of the gremlins faces >< sigh - anyway they're not great, but they're done. I had a really hard time lining up the arms with the rifles (they're in 3! pieces) and once I had that done, I didn't realize the head almost didn't fit. Yes, I dryfitted them but wyrd's stuff's a bit... erm weird sometimes. Anyway, they are indeed together, hopefully they'll stay that way once I start playing with them lol.
  17. I finally had a fairly bright day, so I took final pictures of this miniature which I'd done previously about a month ago, I think. The first one is on the display board I made for my Gremlins. C&C is always welcome! I have a tough time with blending and I'm trying to perfect it. At least on this mini I feel that I got the highlights in the right places lol And I realize there's a terrible mold line especially on the pig :( I just couldn't get it to go away and it's in a very awkward spot for later fixing. Anyway, pics:
  18. Here's a Metal Gamin for Malifaux. Since I'm not very fond of actual models, I've repainted a Dreamblade Runrtagged Brawler to be used as a proxy. I've used Citrine's formula (thank you ). I've just added a final layer of drybrushed 50/50 Ancient Bronze + Vallejo Oily Steel, to get a more desaturated tint. More pics: https://gabbigames.wordpress.com/2015/12/26/metal-gamin/
  19. This chick's nuts.
  20. This guy is the desperate mercenary from Malifaux, I really like the sculpt but getting the arms to stay in place without pinning was an ordeal;) I stuck pretty close to the color scheme on the blister pack and the base is GS. Please C&C comments are always Welcomed
  21. I have finally completed my Dark Debts crew for Malifaux :) Jakob Lynch and Hungering Darkness The Illuminated A Beckoner and Mr. Graves Looking forward to comments and criticism! More (and larger) pics: https://gabbigames.wordpress.com/2015/11/01/malifaux-neverborn-dark-debts/
  22. Been working on the old metal Kirai crew box and not quite sure what to do next. Needs a spot of some contrasting color, I think, but not sure what or where.
  23. This is the regular Malifaux Whiskey Golem, WYR20603 (not the "Nightmare Whiskey Golem" WYR21015 which has a slightly different pose and extra goblin figures). My husband gave it to me for my birthday as part of a selection of minis which could be used for steampunk. As he said, "It's a wooden robot!" This is the first plastic figure model I've put together, and only the second plastic model. Many thanks to the Reaper forumites who suggested glues to use, as my tube of hardware store Duco Plastic Model Cement was way too gloppy and crude for the fine detail of this model. Thanks to Doug Sundseth and haldir for recommending Tamiya Extra Thin Plastic Cement, which, although terrifying, worked pretty well. This model did not have an assembly diagram. I'm sorry I didn't take a picture of the sprue to accompany this statement, because yikes. Zillions of fiddly bits. Fortunately, I found a diagram online for the related "Nightmare Whiskey Golem", which is close enough to work for this one as well. Between that and the render of the model on the back of the box, I could suss out how to do it, starting with the extremities and working my way in to the main body. The Tamiya thin glue comes in a little glass jar with a tiny applicator brush, perfect for detailed little models like this one but probably frustrating for people who need to apply it to large surfaces. The glue is so toxic I assembled the model outside and I wore a NIOSH respirator (and of course gloves) while assembling it. The one thing I left off was a little stack of mugs meant to hang off the peg on the upper left barrel on its shoulders. They were a little fussy and I wanted to emphasize the woodenness, not the whiskeyness of the figure. This means that I now have a spare little line of tiny mugs. Maybe I'll add it to a bartender mini ...
  24. Here are a couple Wyrd minis that I got to paint up just a little while ago. These are both the metal versions of the characters. Wyrd has been switching their line to plastic, and with some very nice results, but it is also nice to go back and paint up the metals ones too. It isn't like Wyrd had a poor range before their move to plastic, you know? In fact, in a few instances, I really miss the old metal versions. Anyway, here they are- the Dead Rider and Governor's proxy
