  1. So I have gotten comments like this now and again: and again: so I thought I would start a thread to talk some about how I paint, because it works pretty well for me and maybe what I've learned and practiced can help other people too. How I paint miniatures is grounded in how I paint paintings, so that's what I'm going to talk about here. I have a series of WIP photos from a recent painting which I will use to demonstrate. This is the finished painting: "Nurturing the Phoenix", oil paint on wooden panel, approx. 18"x24" (would have to pull it out of the painting closet and measure to check)

    Goblin Gift Giving

    Hello and greetings fellow Reaper members. I am here with what i hope will be a consistent wip. I am working on Goblins. I have a unique fondness for Goblins. Sometime back in the late 2000's I had a successful MTG Goblin deck. There was the early incendiary version. Then there was the later beat down deck. Most of the time I won in five turns. These goblins will be given away as a Christmas gift to my family members. Long ago I came across some goblin pillars. I painted them using testors enamels and gave them a marble finish. That piece was given to a close high school friend. I currently have two sets of the 89003 pathfinder goblins. I also have two sets of 77024 that i will paint soon. I am waiting for the goblin war chanter and goblin pyro set to arrive here. I am going to paint the first batch in a typical green. The second set will be painted as my favorite goblins from the Lorywn set. I am doing two batches of each the same way. I am going to use Future floor polish to seal them. I will then begin experimenting using oils. I still need to get some brushes and thinner. It will be a learn as I go experiment. The second set will have yellow, orange, black and brown colorings. Some will be getting markings similar to hyenas. The goblin pyros will have some osl. I am also experimenting with my photo setup to produce nice crisp images. I have ditched the light box and am using a dslr. I am using two clamp lamps. with fluorescent bulbs. If anyone has some more tips on how I could get better photos I would appreciate it . I have been reading through the shutter bug forum. I believe it may be some more trial and error and better photo backdrops. I am proud that these photos are better then my first posting. The more i practice the better I hope to become. Here is where i am at with the first goblin with two different backgrounds. I call him sharp mike in honor of the recipient. Gracious Zoot.
