  1. For your consideration, I offer you the Frost Giant King from the Bones 3 Kickstarter. He is the pair to the Frost Giant Queen and I am not disappointed in the sculpt. This miniature (bigature?) is packed with details and a metric-ton of space to paint and practice textures. The level of detail for Bones miniatures continues to impress me. The King and Queen were both primed with Krylon and sealed with Dull Cote and neither exhibits tackiness. The bits that stick out - like the butt of the spear - did rub off when I handled it during painting. I really had to work my way from the inside out to paint this big guy. The fur textures on the fur cape was an enjoyable ride. I look forward to seeing what others do with this team of Giants, and I'm eyeballing the release schedule for the Frost Giant Guards. I recommend purchasing the Royalty as soon as they are available. Gratitude for all who participated in the WiP thread. Your enthusiasm kept me going. #respect #gratitude I hope you enjoy. :)
  2. So here is another one in my little series of old and new. I was actually going to post this yesterday as well, but I didn't have a good front shot. So this is a Grenadier Elf or Half Elf fighter, from their twenty-piece woodlands adventure box. I painted this figure way back in the eighties to be one of my player characters Renny back in the day when we played D&D at Star Realm in Omaha. Back then there was a buy named Bill if I remember correctly from Offutt who was our DM, another guy, I think Roy, and then another random assortment of teenagers. and a shot from behind, where you'll see there's lots of grass stuck to the base. I think I just didn't wait long enough for his sealant on the base to dry before I stuck him into the grass. I always paint the base black again and then seal, because I will have ultimately made a mess all over the base while painting it. Not too worried though, these are being painted just for fun. and here's the front shot I was missing yesterday, where you can see a bit of difference in the shield and face: and then just some shots of them in the same photo: So there you have them, a small journey into my adolescent past, up to my current almost 50 year old self, who as per my beautiful wife, is still probably somehow stuck back in the past with my fascination for "muñequitos". Like I mentioned in my previous posts I've got a few more of these yet to be started, that I'll probably do when I'm "between projects". Anyhoos, enjoy!

    Frost Giant King WIP

    Update on the Frost Giant King. Cheers to the recommendation on Bases to replace the GW base! I have a slew of baes now for my projects. Plus this base is so much better. I hope to add more embellishment like rocks to match the Queen after I get this chap sorted. So many smooth surfaces asking for textures. Leather texture after the inner cloak is done. The spear shaft wood.grain has to wait until the end as the butt of the spear continues to be worn off during painting. The sword will be a session work in-and-of itself. Enjoy!

    77010: Kobolds (6)

    Here's some love for the little guys, because it isn't all about the big bads. A gang of nasty, orangey kobolds! -E.E.

    77036: Devona, Female Wizard

    Funny how at an early stage of painting things get really messy, then eventually come together. This is where I'm at now, having come from this: which is a photo of the metal version, though the one I'm painting is plastic. The details survived surprisingly well for a first-generation Bones casting. I wanted to get this started before I was too far along and just shot with my built-in webcam that does not like to shoot macro. Better photos when I don't feel so rushed. I feel I might be oversharing a fair bit here.

    03551 DHL Classics Lizardmen 1

    My latest project, complete. You can find the WIP thread here. I did an experiment, using ridges of dirt flocking to hold in water effects. It actually worked out reasonably well, though next time I'll know to build up the rest of the base more. I also decided this one was female, on the basis that she's noticeably larger than the other two. I'm rather happy with how the shield came out here. It looked a bit like a horseshoe crab to me, so I wanted to make it look nice and chitinous, as though she tore it from the back of some great swamp arthropod. My first freehand. It was supposed to be an anchor-shaped tattoo to start with, but I messed that up, and decided to just go with an abstract design. I cheated on the pupils for these guys. I bought a micron pen, and it worked out rather well. I probably would have gone with a solid color for the eyes, otherwise. This was the only one to have any sort of decoration on his integral base. The others are pure broccoli, but he's got a little plant on his. Gave it a nice pale green color to contrast with his scales. The color is actually a mystery paint Reaper sent me. I actually have two bottles of the stuff, from two orders from around the same time. I'll be sad when it runs out. It's a very nice color. And here we have his turtleshell shield. I actually looked up pictures of real turtles and cobbled together characteristics of several species for the color selection and pattern. And here's the whole happy family, together. Touching, really.
  9. So on my quest to finish up this set of four elves, I just completed the sea elf last night. I don't say this too often, but I think I'm really glad the way this one turned out, at least colorwise, as I was using a very limited color palette and was using sea-oriented colors that Reaper makes, like Seafoam Blue, Marine Teal, Clouded Sea, which are paints that I bought a while back but really haven't taken advantage of. With this color scheme in mind I may very well try to do some other aquatically themed figures in the near future. Now out of this set 11-422 from way back in the day I've got one more figure left, a drow assassin, who will be up next as soon as I finish him.
  10. I can almost smell how bad this guy reeks.. and that greasy hair ugh.
  11. Censored for your virgin eyes. I really like these classic bugbears. I don't know that they needed to include monster "junk" but it makes it a conversation piece.( I had to paint that thing) ha. I did a comparison picture to the modern bugbear.

    Sluggort (Dark Sword)

    Finished up Sluggort, a Darksword DiTerlizzi mini. The studio paintjob was green, but I thought I'd go with a more Caucasian skin tone, with a touch of jaundice and various other skin conditions. Sometimes, a goblin just needs to relax among the tall grass and wildflowers.
  13. I had a the fortunate opportunity to paint a piece for Teskeria. I began the project with a concept of a shifter type character, a werecat. Searching through Reapers catalog of minis, I came upon this one. It clicked. And so, Thirysia was born. I had a lot of fun painting these two. I can not, however, take credit for the basing idea. During the Spring Mini Exchange, I received a ranger/wolf combo from Guildenstern that was done similarly. I liked the idea so much, that I used it for this one. I felt it fit too well not to. Thiryrsia was once a respected and noted ranger among the Shadowvale Elves, but a chance encounter would forever change her. Seeing her as cursed, she was cast out of the community, and left to fend for herself. Over time, she learned to control her shifting, and is no longer bound by cycles. With her Redmane companion, Xythis, she stalks the Shadowvale Forest as its most feared and fearsome protector. Here she is, Thirysia, Redmane Werecat, and Xythis her Redmane companion. (Note, the Redmane's are an elven hunting cat I use in my homebrew campaign.) CAH

    77364: Angel Lancer

    Originally she was just a test case for OSL off the lantern and spear blade. I then tried using some interference paints to see if they'd work better, and, well... they took over the piece. So dynamic lighting yes, OSL not really. But it's interesting how with interference paints, you can paint highlights that only show up when light strikes them from a specific angle, usually roughly back towards the light source, which for minis, tends to be just above the viewing position. Also of note, my camera was going insane trying to photograph this. I don't think it likes light reflecting off the mica straight into the sensor.

    77364: Angel Lancer

    A bit of work on my massive backlog of Bones, while I consider how I want to base Excelsy. Couldn't resist doing a little bit of conversion work. Anyways, dual source strong OSL is kicking my tail, and also color identity is almost completely gone. I might knock it back to weak OSL just so I can splash more color into the mini. And also so I can do the sheer fabric effects that I wanted to paint. Sheer fabric is always fun to do.
  16. So here are two more dwarves from Ral Partha's old Fantasy Collectors Series that will eventually be in the next Ral Partha Kickstarter, hopefully coming out sometime this month. A crossbowman and a spearman, nice little figures. Like the last ones I did, they are really pretty small. The square bases they find themselves upon are 20 mm bases.
  17. This week I finished up the last of the Town Guard from the Bones II, Expansion 2, "Town Guard" set, by painting the Spearman figure. There's been a number of these posted here of late, so I thought I'd add mine to the forum as well. :) His spear was all bent out of shape, and I tried the usual Bones boiling water straightening method to get it right again, but just wasn't able to get it perfectly straight. While I don't mind a little "wonkiness" in a wizards staff, I felt the spear really needed to be straight. So, I replaced the Bones spear shaft with one made from a round toothpick. It was no problem slicing off the original shaft, drilling through the hand, and drilling a small indent in the bottom of the spear head, and then gluing it all back together again with Gorilla Superglue. I then did a simple tabletop paint-job on him, added an old Space Marine transfer to the shield, and based him for use with Frostgrave. As always, C & C welcome.

    Two very old Kobolds

    I've had these for many, many years. I am pretty sure they are reaper minis, but I can not find any reference to these particular kobolds when I search. They are very small, here is a scale pic next to a genestealer:

    14497 Chiral, Centaur Captain

    Hello! This is the first real mini I've ever painted (aside from touching up a kobold I got off of Ebay), so I figured I'd hit the forums for some feedback! This took me about 5-6 hours (with some minor cooking and plenty of youtube watching going on in the background). I added some more ground onto the base with some sculpting epoxy, gave it a quick coat of paint, and then covered it with some tea and little plants I made out of some twine with sand for the flowers. I may touch up the edges with some more tea or black paint, as I didn't quite cover them up all the way. Her face is kinda derpy, I definitely need practice with eyes. I also need to straighten out her spear again, she got knocked over and it bent a little. Any feedback or advice is greatly welcomed!
  20. Hello there Reaper pips. This is my third try using NMM technique. I would greatly welcome any critiques to help me improve. As usual please be as brutally honest as possible as it is not possible to hurt my feelings. Thank you very much in advance.

    Woldvagner the Elder, Red Box Games

    Woldvagner the Elder from Red Box Games. I have stared to delve into my RBG collection. I'm moderately happy with how this figure turned out. I really need to work on the eyes for future RBG miniatures. I feel that something might be missing but I can't put my finger on it.

    Kragmarr Guard (14596)

    My obsession with Warlord dwarves continues with Jason Wiebe's Kragmarr Guard. Like this guy a lot, pretty simple and dwarfy. Kept with my usual dwarf-soldier-type blue. Got a little carried away with the shield, heh, but figured I might as well have some fun. Thanks for looking!

    Hi !!! A little mini from Hasslefree paint for a friend this night (i'm insomniac :( ...) Sorry for the bad pictures :

    03294: Tobias Winterthorn, Druid

    I drew Sirithiliel as my exchange partner (and by coincidence, I was her partner as well). She wanted a druid or a monk, and I had been wanting to paint Tobias here for a while. He's got a very dynamic pose, and actually is kind of out-of-place among other Reaper minis, IMO. The sculpt is interesting and quite cool, but also kind of weird after working with it for a while - how did his cloak get out in front of him? where's the other half of his bow? what's that green thing next to the quiver? I think the sculptor might be the guy behind Tin Man Miniatures - same name, at least. I felt like playing around with my Dark Elf skin triad, but it'd be a stretch to paint him as a drow, so instead I am calling him a "night elf." I also knew there was going to be a lot of brown and green on him, so I wanted something that would stand out a bit more than normal the normal caucasian/blonde elf combo. Plus, I keep asking people to do non-caucasian skin-tones, so I should do so as well. I'm pretty happy with the greens, but less so with the browns - the browns were done during "the slog." The greens have fluorescent green mixed into the highlights, so they really look like they're glowing.
  25. Finally painted a Bones 2 mini! . . . but it was just a skeleton. Also some Bones 1 rats. Thanks for looking!
