  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. As some of you know I went to France to participate in the Nato Tiger Meet 2017. I can't post all of course, but here is an impression of some airplanes , some badges, and some of the sight seeing. Badges I acquired, including one from last year I missed then. Jets and stuff that was safe to take pics off.
  4. I painted a sea hag for a D&D session and she murdered a party member! My camera sucks so the pics are really fuzzy. Oh well, she was scary in the game.
  5. Hello! I'm starting a new project, an underwater adventuring party. I've ordered a group of miniatures for it: I've been mostly painting Games Workshop stuff for the last few years, so I'm hoping this will be a nice change of pace.
  6. Hey all, I thought I'd share a little guide on how I converted two Weapons and Warriors pirate ships for gaming. These guys are usually for sale at a reasonable price ($25-30) on ebay as part of the W&W Pirate Battle game. They have the added bonus of coming with two smaller boats and lots of good extras like cannons and palm trees. Here is the unmodified ship. First I clipped the little extra bits that are for the W&W game, and then I puttied over any gaps. Then I gave the whole ship a couple of coats of brown primer. For terrain and other projects like this, I usually use Krylon primer. It does just fine when there is not a lot of small details to obscure. I primed the sails white. The main mast, mizzen mast, and bowsprit all detach. I picked out some detail colors and painted the decks a lighter color. The ships turned out like this: The two small ships and the two boats in the foreground are from W&W. The big ship in the back is a resin model. If you are looking for some ships for your games, this might be the way to go!
  7. This is Miranda from Hasslefree. I am going to use her in my upcoming campaign as an NPC. She will be a major part of the story. I love this figure. She looks so melancholy. She is also tiny! Slightly shorter than your average Reaper girl but more slender and petite. I was not able to do irises in her eyes. The base will be mounted on a plinth eventually. I didn't have a clue what I was doing making her base so I wasn't sure she was actually going on there. I ended up liking it though so here she is. C&C welcome.
  8. I wanted to paint Mary for my oldest stepdaughter, she is into synchronised swimming and I believe part fish. Since she is also a bit of a scrooge I added a bit of treasure. Off to the start, Sculpted a rock with millyput. There will be more to follow.
  9. So I decided to do a updated tutorial on doing a sea floor base! I started with my hippocampus. Things you'll need: Cork Green Stuff Wire WIre Cutters Sculpting Tools! Super Glue SO! To start with, you rip up chunks of coral and arrange the bottom layer how you wish it to look. Feel free to look up pictures of coral, you'll see that they are often in jagged clumps with little nooks and vallleys between them Now you add a second layer, similar to constructing a wedding cake or something, we're going for tiered levels with the upper levels smaller. Now you add smaller tops to a few places, for the higher points Now you take your wire cutters, and you start gouging pits and holes in the cork. You don't want it to be level or straight anywhere, so feel free to yank and rip as you please to get erratic, pitted shapes here it is after i've dug out pits Now you break out the green stuff, and start doing little coral against the cork. I tried an urchin out, my first time attempting to do one I've stuck some wires in that will be schools of fish, and added some more coral And uh...i kind of got distracted....but i did get the fish schools started! To do those, you roll little balls of green stuff and squish them on in an erratic pattern. It's not finished by far, this is just laying the ground work
  10. So. I tried painting some minis without WIPs and found myself having a hard time keeping track of what and how much I had done. So I'm back, although these may be sporadic and really slow to update. We'll see. Anyhow, after painting a lot of tiny figures for the January Bones Beauty Pageant, I decided to move in the opposite direction and tackle some of the big figures from Bones I to clear out room for Bones II. So I am painting dragons. Five of them, if you count the Frost Wyrm. Each one gets its own thread, though, since I don't know how I'm going to progress through them. I'm painting each dragon up as inspiration takes me. I thought this one, 77108, the Shadow Dragon, looked slightly aquatic, like a river deity. So I decided to paint it up in cool, watery shades. Maybe like some kind of frog or sea creature. I don't know yet. Anyhow, first I put on a base coat of Reaper's Brown Liner, the paint which sticks to Bones like gangbusters, thanks to Buglips for the discovery, and then a wash of medium blue mixed from Phthalocyanine Blue and a little Titanium White. I don't expect the final dragon to be straight blue like this, but I needed to give all the dragons a distinct color scheme at the start since none of their wings are glued on yet and I need to keep them straight. The other dragons I'm painting concurrently are Deathsleet, Ebonwrath, the Fire Dragon, and the Frost Wyrm.
  11. Do people know of lines of very small (two or three inches, max) model ships and boats for tabletop combat? Or have favorites? This isn't urgent, more of a "it would be nice" sort of thing. There's a game coming up likely to involve combat at sea, and actual little ships could help. We can, of course, use Star Trek Battles and X-Wing ships. Or dice, for that matter. But actual little ships would be fun. They don't have to be perfectly historic; fantasy or steampunk ships are okay too. Bonus points to anyone who knows where I can find a little paddlewheel steamship.
  12. Hi, my name is Yann, i'm French (sorry for my bad english). This is my first post here... Call of Cthulhu 1:350 (with Tamiya boats) : http://www.coolminiornot.com/372937
  13. My sea monster from Uncharted Seas. Green stuff froth on the flippers and around him, and free hand detail on the waves to make it look choppier
  14. ...is underway! Ha! So far, just concept art. I'm going to try and start the armature today I'm also going to try a chinese dragon later on, so that's what that drawing is for
  15. Designed by Larry Elmore, sculpted by Jeff Grace. I spotted it in a game store and thought it was way more interesting than the pure eye candy mermaids. I was concerned about the flimsiness of the join between arms and arm sockets, so I pinned them. With very. Tiny. Wires. The arms were mighty thin to begin with. I may have left the pinning wires a bit long, making her upper arms a bit long. I deliberately didn't give her pupils. I wanted her to have preternatural, milky nonhuman eyes. I figured mermaids would not have easy access to metal, so I painted her armor and weapon as if they were made of coral, ivory, and bone. In the fourth picture for some reason the colors came out very bright, but the other pictures are more true to life.
