  1. I will paint and create a Reptilian Army pure for fun. It will consists of many different kind of Reptiles and Amphibians. Mostly Snakemen, Lizardmen, Frogmen, Dragonmen, Turtlemen, Fishmen, Dinosaurs and Insects. I will happily include any monster I think will fit. Khanjira will be the centrepiece at some sort as the Living Lizard God. I do not play any games, so this will be pure for my own and (I hope your) fun to create. EDIT: The above was my original plan, over time and thanks to the comments made by other Forumites, this has developed into a story. This resulted in more Factions I wanted to build and paint, so this Project now also includes Pirates, Conquistadores, Native Warriors based on Inca/Aztec/Maya cultures. EDIT: And now it will also include Undead! *********** Captain Luigiano and his army had been travelling through the jungle for weeks now. The sunlight was blocked by the dense canopy of trees. Some of the men had contracted fever, and those darn mosquitos were a big nuisance! He looked at the golden plaque he had obtained. Gold, with a snakeman made out of gems on it. With this he had convinced the men to follow him. Somewhere in this accursed jungle there was a city made of gold, he was sure of it. They would conquer this city and become rich beyond belief. He looked at his army, they even had a few cannons. Nothing would stop them! Finally they reached a clearance. The men were pleased, at least they could see the sun again. They took a rest and a drink, tended to the sick. Suddenly they heard a loud roar from the other side of the clearing. Birds flew away, trees where falling! Some poison darts flew and two soldiers fell, they died before they hit the ground. A loud roar and an enormous terrifying Lizard appeared. One soldier died out of fear from just looking at it. Then the Reptilian Horde emerged from the Jungle. **************************
  2. I also got the Layer Up! LTP kit back in December - Here is the first figure from that set - the pirate. Once again, I followed the booklet, took pics, and then added a couple of touches. I really enjoyed painting him and he is seeing use on the table - although as a dessert nomad ranger rather than pirate! I'm still a very impatient user of layers though.... This figure also inspired me to buy some water effects to play with in the future...

    77131 Fineala, Half Elf Pirate

    This is the second time I've painted Fineala. She's being gifted to my friend Riley who seems to be her living counterpart. Her base is a combination of Blond Shadow, Blond Hair, and Brown Wash. It's the first time I've used that for wood and it gives a nice laminated effect that matches the floor of the resturant.

    02645: Maria Roseblade - Savage Tide NPC

    I very rarely bother to do Show Offs of my work, partially because getting good pictures is a hassle and partially because my painting isn't all that amazing. But I'm trying to put together a collection of useful miniatures for the Savage Tide adventure path and this was one of the things I painted for it. It's supposed to be Harliss Javell, but I got a little carried away before I realized that she is not a recurring NPC. In the end I decided that I'd already spent way too much time on a single piece so any awesome reflections you see are likely the result of real light and are not paint. (The photos are actually a little bright, but I figured that was better than too dark.) I'm not going to give away too much description of the character since @Wise Kraken and @GodOfCheese are both players, but she's an imposing ship's captain of unknown reputation.
  5. Glitterwolf proudly presents Kabuki's Bonny Ann Pirate Queen Bust. WIP here for those interested http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/77677-bonny-ann-pirate-queen-bust-by-glitterwolf/&page=8 She comes with different options. One fully clothed with hat and bustier and one topless. The Macaw was also optional. Here is the Hatless and NUDE version, LINKED: https://postimg.cc/image/g88jq3h45/ https://postimg.cc/image/6axix24dh/ https://postimg.cc/image/a7aut127p/ https://postimg.cc/image/z0ketp0np/ The safe back and mug shot: Here is the Clothed version with all options.
  6. A while ago I had a poll to vote which bust I would paint next. This was the winner. So we better get started ( ok I'm also painting my Brutus Bust but she was first) She has many options, ( with or without hat, with or without a parrot, and with a shirt or topless) I'm going for full options. Trying to make the shirt somewhat sheer. OMG...I never done that! Wish me luck!
  7. These are the set BFM MLS003 from Bad Squiddo, which I have discovered is called "Vampire Thralls", although in my notes I call them "feral vampires" and I think of them as more unaffiliated vampire pirates or swashbucklers. (Although thinking about it, it would be really difficult to be a vampire pirate, what with the total lack of shade and all.) I painted one of them up blonde, because blonde vampires look extra creepy. There is a WIP thread here. As ever, comments, critiques, and questions are welcome.
  8. I'm painting Barnabus Frost, Pirate Captain, and came across an odd situation. On his left side, possibly hanging from his belt, there is an approximately trapezoidal shape that has three tassels hanging from it. I've seen things like it before, being an SCA member and fairly familiar with historical clothing, but I have no idea what it's called or if it serves any use beyond decoration. I searched Google images, but that was no help. Does anyone know what this could possibly be? For your reference, here is the best picture I could locate of the item: Most people seem to paint it the same color as his coat, but I like to be as accurate as I can in my painting and would like more information on this interesting object.

    77134: Hajad the Pirate (LTPK part 3)

    The third and final mini from the Layer Up! LTPK, Julie Guthrie’s Hajad the Pirate: Not gonna try for any better images, because then you would see how badly I messed up the eyes... Mostly by the book, but I skipped the lining as my little brush was becoming temperamental. Of the three minis in this kit, this is the one I was most looking forward to, as it has the most exposed skin of the three (one of my problem areas). Think I oversold the abs a bit too much though. Based on issues with the previous minis, I elected to basecoat both weapon blades with Ebony Flesh before applying the metallic. The Filigree Silver included in the kit was too watery to play nice with bare Bonesium, and in any case it was difficult for me to see where the paint actually stuck. Plus, it makes lighter metallics pop. It was nice to see darker flesh tones included in this kit. The darkest (non-dark elf) skin tone I had available before was Tanned Skin, but my attempts to mix in darker paints always resulted in a weird shade of sadness. All in all, this kit was a good learning experience. The instructions were clear and easy to follow, and it was neat seeing the colors build up with each layer. The cartoons were cute too. I just hope that my technique improves moving forward. And that painting eyes gets easier.

    3242 Rozmina, half-orc pirate

    Hello all, so here's a mini I've had literally for years and years, probably around the time she was actually released, but didn't get around to painting her up until finishing her a few nights ago. I worked on her at the same time I did another half-orc, which I still have pending. Anyhow, this is Rozmina, the half-orc pirate #3242, sculpted by Derek Schubert. I fell in love with this figure the moment I saw it, but such as life is, never got around to painting her. Too much love, not enough time. She didn't take too long to paint, the longest thing was trying to figure out her actual color scheme. Didn't know what color two do the three pieces of clothing she has on. Once I got that figured out she moved along pretty quickly. She has big, expressive eyes, and I was getting really close to wanting to put the white reflective dot in there, but chickened out at the last moment. I tried to actually do the "whites" of her eyes as a orangy yellow, but I kind of think it made the eyes get lost a bit in her green colored skin. Anyhow, reasonably happy with how she came out, let me know what you think! Thanks! EDIT: so after looking at the eyes and not being so satisfied with them, I worked on them again a little last night and I still can't seem to get a super good picture of them, but here is a bit of an improvement hopefully: I added a little white dot to each eye (the one on the right hand side turned out better than the left) and tried to create a bit more lining around that eye, and a little less around the other eye. Don't know if that makes a difference or not? Once again, it's always being unsatisfied with one's own work....
  12. This fun little guy is from Bombshell's Kritterkin line and is the first one of them that I have painted. I started him at our paint group last Saturday and finished him up over last few days. I wanted to go for more of a pirate type look than naval officer so I decided to play around with textured leather. It was a challenge keeping all the brown from not looking the same but I am happy with how he turned out.

    60146 Kassata Lewynn

    This is Kassata Lewynn, sculpted by Julie Guthrie. The base is resin, from Celtic Ruins pack BRCE0043, by Scibor Miniatures. I love this sculpt and I love the way she turned out. However, I had a lot of little problems that surprised me when painting her. Somehow I managed to drop her at least five times while working on her. I had to put a sheet of foam under where I was working to prevent further damage. This has not happened to me before, so it was quite frustrating. Each time, there were little white dings in the paint in the middle of spots where I was blending that required multiple layers re-painted to fix the damage. I think I found and fixed most of them. As I was painting her hair, the paint started drying in a completely different way. It started snowing, so maybe it was the change in weather. When I did the brown layer, the paint flowed very smoothly. Part way through painting the first highlight layer, the paint started drying almost immediately. I am using a #3 Raphael 8404, and it would dry out to the point of no paint flowing within a few seconds. None of the usual tricks seemed to work (more thinning, flow aid). It ended up being almost dry brushing, which is why the highlights in her hair look so chalky. I noticed a tiny dark spot on her left collar and thought I had dabbed black paint by mistake. I blended the brown over it several times and it just wouldn't cover over. Then I figured it out -- there was a hole in her collar all the way through to her shoulder. A lot of the paint I was applying to cover what I thought was a spot of dark paint was actually wicking through the collar and coming out on the underside. You can see the dark spot in the top picture right below her chin. It could have been fixed with a spot of glaze but I decided to leave it. Maybe she had a near miss with an arrow at some point. Her face turned out to be exceptionally difficult for me to paint. Her eyes have sculpted texture that I found made it very difficult for me to place the irises. That's why the eye placement looks a little off. Plus, I somehow managed to paint slightly triangular blobs with narrow point upwards instead of circles. That is contributing to her slightly cross-eyed appearance. If I paint this miniature again in future, I will probably try to smooth the surfaces of the eyes to make it easier to make them symmetrical. Her lips also have a shape that I found very challenging. There are cute little dimples at each corner of her mouth which give her a nice smile. I found that if I had the paint thinned enough to paint her lips, the paint was also thin enough to immediately wick into these dimples, which significantly magnified the apparent size of her mouth. I tried repeatedly to paint her lips smoothly, but I had to paint it over and start again each time. I originally started with a less bright red for her lips, keeping in with the overall milder colour scheme, but the darker red didn't flow into the dimples so that's what she has. Correcting this each time had an impact on the blending of the flesh tones on her face, which is why there looks like there is a sharp brush line down the middle of her right cheek. That's where I gave up trying to fix the blending. I think if I did this miniature again, I would paint the shade tone of the flesh colour into the dimples, and then fill them in with glazing medium. That way I might still get the nice smile, but not have to fight with the wicking effect on the lip colour. I also misjudged the overall skin tone. I used the Reaper fair skin triad with a very slight darkening of the fair skin shadow as the darkest shade and brightened the fair skin highlight with white. I think the whole series turned out to be too light and as a result there doesn't appear to be much shape to her face when viewed from a distance. I should have started with a darker shade overall, maybe by adding a mid-range brown to the darkest shade colours for her skin to increase the contrast. I created the gem on her right bracer by filling in the rune shape that was there with glaze. I like the way the gem turned out and the colour, but I shouldn't have outlined the gem shape with black. I think I should probably used the a darker version of the shade colour I used on the bracer, which was a mixture of nightshade purple and bronzed shadow (from the bronzed flesh triad). The gem would have still been nicely framed, but the black is just too stark and didn't turn out very smooth. It might look better if I had been able to make the black margin narrower and rounder. Anyway, if anyone has any feedback to share about this model, I would love to hear it. Thanks, Geoff

    14566 Razig's Revenge - Salty Saber

    The weather has been horrible this weekend, so I have lots of painting time. Here is my next completed miniature for the Jan/Feb RPChallenge. I am running Princes of the Apocalypse for D&D at the moment, so he will be my "Gar Shatterkeel". Geoff
  15. This is Marshalla Sylvie from Freebooter Miniatures. In my Lost World she is Bonita, Half Pirate / Half Snake. I gave painted her base as if she was on driftwood in the water. Had fun with the Snake part and tried a little sheer on her blouse. WIP and Lost World Stories here http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=103 Enjoy:
  16. Hello all. I failed to keep up with the WIP due to rushing to completion. This was my Reaper entry and he received a solid bronze. I'm quite proud of two parts of the figure: 1) The freehand tattoo on his back, it was my first attempt at freehand. ^.^ 2) The water portion of the plinth because I borrowed two blue's from @Mr Melons (thanks!) and set about mixing and painting on the plinth with a completion time of under 10 minutes. ^.^ I will summarize to the best of my abilities, the information I have garnered from judges and several artists I have spoken with. For now, I present Stieg. He was a wonderful figure to paint and very fun. Summary behind the spoiler:
  17. Was attempting tattoos and didn't like the mess I made. I started over by dunking in simple green (regretting that decision). Attempt #2! I should document my progress, this should help push me. Using grey primer because I can't find my white primer. 09299: MSP Core Colors: Grey Primer
  18. Here is Maria Roseblade from the Reaper Master Series. Hope you'll like it. WIP is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62239-30007-maria-roseblade-pirate-queen-54mm-xherman1964

    77134 Hajad Pirate as Zombie

    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.
  20. This is the Sea Ghost from AD&D module U1: the sinister secret of saltmarsh. It will hopefully be used in my group's upcoming D&D pirates campaign set in 1600's Jamaica. Its layers will be separable, with each surface being a sort of game board for each deck of the ship, from forecastle/poop, to main deck, to cargo deck, to bilge. I'm going to try to pin the layers together so they don't just fall apart by using the mast and rudder to keep the layers aligned when they are stacked. It is made of 3/4" polystyrene insulation sheets, cut, stacked, and sanded down with a belt sander. In the end it will have paint and probably balsa wood details. That's the Barnabas Frost mini that I posted in the show-off forum standing on the deck in a few of the photos.
  21. So, here are two miniatures I just got done painting and basing last night. I ended up painting these two as well as another figure (front with a link for nudity) at the same time because I was starting out with the same skin colors, beginning with Tanned Skin. One thing I did with the female pirate's sword and metal was I used Ashen Blue as my base color, then used deeper blues, then dark elf skin and shadow, then black, and worked upwards with lighter greys and finally white. With the bases, which I also do very simply, I did the pirate bases starting with a base of blonde hair, then terran khaki. The thought was to make sand, but who knows how well that worked out. Here is the link to the third miniature: http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:02-806_flute8.JPG And here is the photo this figure came from: And a question, one of the doubts I had was about the female pirate, should I have lightened her eyebrows?
  22. This was originally a birthday present last year, a fairly simple German resin ship kit for a medieval-style cog. Since I was playing a Githyanki in Dungeons and Dragons at the time, I modeled, painted, and sewed the vessel up into a more or less spelljammer, since named Black Moon's Bane from events in the game. There is a fairly detailed Work-in-Progress thread for this ship, if anyone has questions about materials or techniques. Or you can ask here; that's fine. A list of materials: Resin ship's hull model, wooden dowels, bamboo chopsticks, bamboo kitchen skewers, acrylic paint, brass wire, silk organza, silk taffeta, wooden furniture peg, jewelry findings (barrel clasps, jump rings), jewelers chain, metal necklace charms, glass seed beads, waxed linen bookbinder's thread, waxed linen carpet warp, silk buttonhole thread, cotton twine, metallic polyester yarn, nylon cord, screw eyes, 1/2" zinc fender washer, various glues The bowsprit (left) is a bamboo chopstick painted and wrapped with brass wire. The hatch on the deck (right) looks down over a forested landscape. The ship's rails are painted with (imaginary) red runes on black, then washed over thinly with silver metallic paint. From some angles the rails look silver and the runes are invisible. From others they show clearly. The ship's wheel (visible at the upper deck on the stern) is a charm bracelet charm with the hanging loop filed off. I nailed and glued it to the post (made from a furniture peg) so that it spins freely. It is mounted on a small fender washer so it can be moved around the ship. The runes around the door to belowdecks are imaginary. I may think of more stuff to say later. Right now I'm a little dazed.

    77132 - Barnabus Frost

    I like this guy. Nice detail without going overboard. I think I got eager to move on to another figure before I was completely done. It shows in the buttons and the pistol. I kicked myself a little when I saw another example the other week where someone has removed the gun from the figure. I should have done that in the beginning. I'm pretty happy with the red jacket and the beard. Comments?
  24. We are starting a pirate campaign this week. I whipped this mini up as a gift for the game master of the Boot Hill/Call of Cthulu mashup game that we just finished two weeks ago. I'm also building a to-scale pirate ship for this campaign. Stay tuned for that. Will post photos in a few days when it's complete. I hope you enjoy!
