  1. Sometime in the middle of 2018 I pulled out this old GW Mordheim Ogre Mercenary mini, and poked at it a bit, intending on painting him up pretty quickly. If I remember correctly, I did the base intending on using it for the dire boar, but then decided that it didn’t work for that mini. I have only a vague idea of how I primed it, but I think I mixed Reaper’s Brush On White Primer with… Grey Liner? Maybe? After priming it I started painting the flesh with… maybe Tanned Shadow? Maybe Ruddy Flesh? Since then I haven’t done anything with it, and he’s been looking at me accusingly the whole time. Blurry picture cropped from the background of a work table shot where the ogre sat unloved So time to get it done. Going back over the skin, I reblocked in with Ruddy Flesh. I used a bit of Walnut Brown to darken it for the shadows, and Rusty Red for the nose, cheeks, ears, and lip to make it look more fleshy. I used Linen White for the eyes, teeth and nails. Both the teeth and nails are going to need significant yellowing. The shirt was painted with Muddy Olive, while the jacket was painted with Rusty Red, while just about everything else has been painted with Walnut Brown. More to come!
  2. So I mentioned working on a few old minis while I was also working on My Women in Horror Tribute... this is the thread for my continued work on those this spring. The oldest is Dark Sword's Male Fighter with Spear. I got that for a GURPS campaign PC that fizzled out. I had done crazy magic blue eyes, and a very thin layer of green on the cloak, and then it's been sitting on the shelf since 2013. I haven't felt capable of tackling it. it's got tiny eyes. Next I started working on the smaller of the fierce felines, to do some weird approximation of my cat Moose (in my profile photo). That was my first experiment with blue liner on a metal mini. Now I would mix in medium. Anyway, I had a blue and white base coat before it disappeared to the shelf. Here is where this started. I don't remember when I started working on the Whispering Tyrant - it's after the other two. I had some armor and bone basecoats and a green cloak. Mostly I just tried to do more on the green cloaks. I'll upload photos of where things are at after that first session when my phone is done charging. I did some more work last night too, but I haven't taken pictures yet. I'll probably try to do some painting tonight too. Then a few days of silence.
  3. I've decided to start working on reducing the number of half painted, primed, assembled and partially assembled figures I've got scattered around the house on various shelves, trays, boxes, cases, cupboards, desks and tables, mostly because I'm running out of room for all this stuff and once painted they can get crammed on the "painted stuff" shelves. I decided to do these first. This came as a set of three I think, and I'm pretty sure it was from the old Mega Minis, but they have been out of the blister for a number of years, so not positive. They were already assembled and primed and the wood was mostly done. This was the way I used to do wood back in the day, which is basically while primer with Reaper Pro Paint Wood Stain Ink slathered over it. I just touched it up a bit (my bottle of that was still good), I'm just going for table top here. I decided to do the spears in three different colours in case these get used in a D&D session or something, so they are easily identifiable. Happy to see them migrate from the shelves of shame to the shelves of painted stuff!
  4. In rounding up figures to log what I had painted last year, I turned up lots of half-finished minis. Some of them had little bits I was unhappy with; some need repair; some I had lost interest in or overlooked; some I felt weren't going as well as I would have liked; and some were just in the limbo of unfinished projects. So I figured I could finish them up, to tabletop standard at least, and have them usable in games. That's going to be my year's beginning project, clearing out the backlog of figures. They range from almost completely finished (except maybe for some basing) at the front, to just colors blocked in at the back. So I laid out the most nearly finished ones to begin with and got started. First I glued things that needed it: Some Tom Meier Thunderbolt Mountain elves are exquisite, but on tiny bases prone to tipping over. I glued them onto pennies. And I glued some skulls and books and things onto the bases of Hasslefree's not-Scooby-Gang. And by not fussing over bases and accepting that I may be unhappy with certain aspects, but they are okay for gaming, I finished four figures this first session! These are Reaper's 50134: Racquel Blackrose, Buccaneer by Patrick Keith; Reaper's 02115: Mishka The Mystic by the incomparable Sandra Garrity; Hasslefree Miniature's HFC002 Mineko by Kev White; and Reaper's 02075: Katarina The Invoker, also by Sandra Garrity. I am a little dissatisfied with them, especially Mineko's kimono which went a little wonky. On the other hand, yay! finished!
  5. I was looking at my Shelf of Shame (or Opportunity) last night and realized it's grown quite a bit recently. It got me to wondering what others' looked like, so I decided to start this thread for us to share with each other in a show and tell of what our current shameful projects are. Feel free to post/link pictures of your shelves! ETA: This can be anything hobby-related you are working on: Figures, Terrain, or Basing. ETA2: My shelf!
  6. I decided that I needed a shelf to put minis on so they stop cluttering up my work area. I needed a shelf of shame. I have a ton of foamcore, paper and WorldWorks Games products, so I knew a custom unit could be made. It probably took me 15-20 hours of time to build, but honestly a large portion of that was dealing with printer issues. Here is where the WIP starts: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/49824-talaes-wip-thread-of-everything/?p=901883 The final product:
  7. Dilvish the Deliverer

    77020 Bathalian, 77149 Damien, Hellborn Wizard

    So I have cleaned and stowed my painting desk and it is no longer a demotivational mess that sucks away my will to paint. So what to do with my new found inspiration? Finish up a couple of pieces from my now defunct WIP thread. The Bathalian I started at a Reaper Paint and Take at Pax East, in 2013. It sat staring at me because I cold remember what paint colors were on the table and what colors and ratios used to mix some of the different shades. I would pull it out when I was avoiding working on other minis at paint days and would inevitably get gold on the blue or blue on the pink and it soon became one permanent touch up. Finally I bit the bullet and am calling it done. Damien, I painted to represent my Eldritch Pact Warlock in a now defunct 4E game. As warlocks don't use staffs, a couple of clips later and he now has a very trendy rod, or a really big wand. Maybe he is overcompensating. Either way, Damien was usually the mini I'd avoid working on when I would pick up the Bathalian. So some touch up and picking the necklace with some Noir Black and Splintered Bone and e was good enough to sit in a case in the unlikely vent that the game restarts. Unlikely as the DM is in Deigo Garcia. Here is to getting some more bench queens off of my shelf of shame.
  8. My husband printed this one out for me. He knows me so well. http://www.dorktower.com/2013/03/19/trajanic-tragics-dork-tower-19-03-13/
