  1. Leisynn, Mercenary Mage 77174

    Painted this fig last night for an upcoming adventure. I've needed a generic evil wizard for a while now. I found this guy at my local game store and decided he would be perfect. I did have some grand plans with his spell book that didn't turn out. I was planning on making script on one page that looked like it was glowing starting at the top left, and continuing until about the middle of the page as if the words were magically glowing as he cast a spell. The results ended up looking like the script was squiggly lines with green slime spilled on them. Other than that, I'm really happy with how he turned out. Advice and critiques welcome as always! Thanks in advance!
  2. Here are the mouseling druid and beekeeper. The beekeeper will eventually go in a diorama once I get it finished. These were fun to paint and pretty quick. The beekeeper is the mini for the Reaper Facebook Quarterly Contest. Since I am not entering, I can show mine! I was going to do a green cloak on the druid but he reminded me so much of an Ewok....well, you see what happened. They are adorable!
  3. 01601: Domur, High Mage (25th anniversary)

    This year is the year of giving miniatures as birthday gifts to the friends I game with. One of these fine fellows--my oldest and dearest friend--has a birthday in a couple weeks. He loves magic-users and is obsessed with Harry Potter, so I painted up a 25th anniversary Domur as a classic "Gandalf the Grey" style wizard for his present: Tried to layer the flames to give some interesting and pleasing texture. Let me know how I did. Also, given his love for all things Potter, I did my best to modify Domur's spellbook to a more familiar book cover... I'm actually surprised I could keep the brush steady enough for it to come across at all similar, to be honest.
  4. 03504: Karahl Farstep - Green Wizard

    Hopefully the first of many, this was an experiment in color - in this case, green. And while his wide stance was a problem at first, I made it work. Karahl Farstep: Hood and cloak are both a mix of Brilliant Green and Linen White, 3:1 for the darker areas and 1:2 everywhere else. The cloak is shadowed with purple (thanks, @Cyradis!), and I think it came out pretty nicely in front. Had to redo the back due to becoming shadow happy. For the light greens I was hoping to achieve something close to mint green, but it came out a lot more washed out and boring than hoped. So I freehanded borders around those parts with some Palomino Gold. Not daring enough to do anything fancier than that yet, but I think it makes a positive difference. Comments and critiques welcome, I’d like to know what works or doesn’t, and what to try and do better next time.
  5. 03787: The Crimson Herald

    Presenting The Herald, the third member of my Dreadmere group. At the suggestion of Crowley, I added more tentacles to connect him to his base a bit better. While I'm happy with how this went, I don't think he's as well painted as the other two. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  6. Hundred Kingdoms Friar

    A random old figure picked up for cheap to practice layering and other things on. Feedback appreciated: FLGS had a couple of these guys priced at $10. This one, however, was marked half off and sold for $3. I guess that’s how math works. Anyway, I wasn’t able to find pictures of the assembled figure online, so I’m not sure if it is the complete sculpt. The top and bottom halves were separate pieces. This pose seemed the least wrong, or at least made the two halves fit together the closest. Several firsts (for me) going on here. Aside from some of my old Hero Quest figures, this was my first non-Reaper mini. It was also the first slotted mini, which required my first attempt at creating a base out of green stuff. I think it turned out all right, but it’s definitely something I’ll need to practice. Comments and critiques appreciated!
  7. Disciple of the Flower Witch

    Presenting a Disciple of the Flower Witch (there's five of them but I'm not sure which number this one is), a mysterious denizen of the Kingdom Death world. She's also in my Kingdom Death WIP thread. Not too happy with this one, it turned out to be a much trickier mini to paint than I thought and as a result she's rather rough in places. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

  9. 03786 - Andowyn Thrushmoor

    Presenting Andowyn - The Mischievous Druid, the second finished mini from my Dreadmere Begins WIP thread. I loved how detail heavy Andowyn turned out to be, she's just covered in stuff! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  10. 14032: Corm, Ghostmane Shaman

    Edit: updated the pictures to have a neutral background (suggested by Glitterwolf) and better lighting. Hey Guys! I'm pretty new to painting miniatures but I'm having a lot of fun with it. This is the first one that I feel really good about but I'd also love some feedback. Thanks!
  11. Mouseling Mage - 77548

    This is the little mage that goes with the Wizard in the Mouseling Wizards set from Bones 3. She hasn't been sealed yet so the orb isn't glossy and she herself is a bit shiny in places. Another fun little mouse! I even gave her lavender eye shadow. It was hard to tell what a couple things on her were. I guessed it is a scroll case attached to one side of her belt with a pouch. I have no idea what is supposed to be under her other arm attached to her belt. We'll see if she makes an appearance in tomorrow's game! C&C welcome!
  12. Mouseling Wizard - 77548

    Painted this little guy up last night. I am trying to get 5 more finished before tomorrow. If my players make the wrong choice in the riddle they will be given, they will all be turned into Mouselings! He is very cute and was a ton of fun to paint. I will post photos of the others as I get them finished. C&C welcome
  13. Frodwine the Young by RBG

    Frodwine the Young by Red Box Games Sculpted by Tre Manor I painted this one in an effort to cross two or three lines together; 1800 trapper, Final Fantasy wizard and Nordic(in terms of the way Tre Manor sculpted it). I wanted to try some OSL on this one so I went with making his eyes glow. I was "o.k" with the way it turned out. The base is a metal base from a set I got in the Box-of-goodwill a few boxes ago. I'm on a NMM kick right now so no TMM on this one. Over all I am luke-warm with out this turned out. The matte varnish (Vallejo) kind of glossed up for some reason when I sealed it... You live and learn. Hope you like it.
  14. For your consideration, I offer Nolevniss Azrinae: Reaper Miniature 60162. Or in this Multiverse: Elariel Moonshadow This elf Magi was an active sculpt to paint. The robes and cloak are dynamic in portrayal of wind movement and direction. The robes were long and laying folded in back, which suggests weight and volume. Limited palette with work on suggesting different textures of cloth. Teeny eyes. Delicate sculpt too with the hair and features. And the familiar was an enjoyable if not surreal sculpt. I was told by the person who wanted this painted, "And paint the baby dragon gold." When I popped my Opti-visor on I was like, "That's not a dragon..." This creature reminded me of the haemonculus familiar from earlier Dungeons and Dragons editions, while the head reminded me of an eye-less vampire bat. What you see is the result. Cute. (But you don't want to be left alone in the same room with it.) The staff is a weapon of Power - like Purple Name power. Spell book and scrolls along with bandolier pouches told me a story of a travelling Mage - even his staff clutched a simple stone at the foot to act as counterweight. But not a nice guy. I hope you enjoy him. :) Peace and blessings.
  15. Here is the mage/wizard/sorceress in my Dragons Don't Share 2 adventuring party. She was fun to paint. I wanted a diverse group so I gave her more of a Mediterranean skin tone and ombre hair. I am still trying to decide if I want to give her a spell effect in her giant hand. It doesn't bother me as much now that it is painted so not sure if I will go ahead with a spell effect or leave her as is. I tried a little freehand on her scarf/cape thing. They aren't quite even but I was relatively happy with the design so am leaving it alone. I am getting a dvd so hopefully my freehand will improve. C&C welcome!
  16. Long time lurker, second time poster, first time upload. Here is the Frost Giant Queen from the Reaper Bones 3 Kickstarter for your consideration. I was unable to participate in the Bones 3 Kickstarter as I came upon these Bones figures late in the game. However, the participants who were able placed their unwanted miniatures up on eBay, so I took advantage of opportunity when presented. I focused on Color Theory and Texture on this piece as she provided a very large palette to paint upon. These Giants provided me practice in sketching too, which makes the entire line appealing to me. Side note: Gratitude to those who did place these minis up on eBay without jacking up the prices. I was able to purchase the both Frost Giant Royalty around cost of what Reaper will sell them at Retail. This certainly displays an ethos in the Reaper community that makes this community stand out among others. Further, having lurked for awhile: the community here is quite kind and helpful. This is a good community of miniature painters. I like the Bones miniature range. The detail on this miniature was very close to what I expect from the metal range, and I will purchase more of the Bones range in the future. I am looking forward to the resculpt of Vanya, the Fire Giant Princess, and her new size to match the Fire Giants in D&D. The attire of this miniature is akin to the Viking attire of old, and I found my SCA ventures to assist me in painting this Viking Apron and embellishments. The sculptor did an outstanding job and I look forward to more of their work. The FAQs were an asset that made my first foray into Bones an easier one. I had difficulty with flash lines until I picked up some diamond files, which handled them quite well without marring detail like my serrated files. The bent pieces were fixed with some boiling water and cold water quite easily. The pieces fit together like a glove, though I admit I still pinned them. (My OCD was tingling.) I did use Krylon as Primer, and the tackiness disappeared after the first coat of paint. She was sealed only with Krylon Dull Cote and exhibits no tackiness. She has been handled and there is no rubbing off of paint. I like how her base was round, though I am ignorant of what would be an appropriate Reaper base to place this inside of. (I currently have the King on a GW Dreadnought base, and I do not like it. If anyone reads this and has a recommendation, I surely would appreciate it.) This Bones line of miniatures has proven to me to be a Good Idea and one I will support. I am already purchasing more of the Bones 2 line for my D&D and Oldhammer alternatives, and I admit excitement at the new of Bones 4. Based on the quality of these miniatures: you will have an additional participant. Please keep up the outstanding quality and amazing work. I hope you enjoy my efforts. C&C is always appreciated: it is the only way an Artist can improve. May your blends be smooth. Peace and blessings.
  17. Greetings! Presenting Reaper's February 25th Anniversary miniature - Domur, High Mage. I got sidelined by a multiple dragon project recently so I'm a little bit behind with my 25th Anniversary figures project but I'm getting back on track now. I opted out of doing OSL on the spell effect & decided on something gaseous & non photonic (at least, that's the excuse I'm sticking to! ). I wanted to have the spell effect go through a distinctive colour change so I came up with a counjouring technique to explain it; First, Domur reads from the book, this causes a white inert harmless spirit to appear from the pages of the book. Then, as the spirit wafts closer to the magic crystal in Domur's staff, it takes in it's massive power (& colour) & becomes weaponised......... I used metallic blue paint to highlight the inner lining of the cape for an extra touch of wizardly oppulence. Finally, I've managed to sneak my favourite purple into the book cover - I'll be "shoehorning" this colour into all my Reaper 25th anniversary minis as a form of unification. 2 Down, 10 to go....... Thanks for looking!
  18. 02967 - Alastriel, Elf Sorceress

    Greetings! Presenting Alastriel, Elf Sorceress...... I really love the wonderful sculpting on this mini, she seems to be both beautiful & dangerous at the same time. I imagined her as a "Sea Elf" who lives on the cost protecting her kin from marauders & pirates with ship-destroying storm spells. I painted her in sea blue & sea green & extended the base with some rough basic sculpting into a more substantial rocky outcrop to reflect this. Thanks for looking!
  19. Ejrvindr the Far Seeing by RBG

    Ejrvindr the Far Seeing by Red-Box-Games Sculpted by Tre Manor This guy was particularly fun to paint as I thoroughly enjoy doing leather. His clock was a labor of love. It did turn out to be "leather" but the browns look really nice. I also tried doing a bottle with liquid in it. Didn't turn out how I wanted but it's good enough for tabletop standard. In need find some tutorials on how to paint containers with liquid in them. I had sculpted the base myself - which you will find I do that with everything. The base is the OSL that is projecting up and on to him. Additionally, you'll notice on this series of miniatures I put Nordic runes on some of the miniatures. You can see that here on Ejrvindr on the scabbard of his dagger. Thank you all, Enjoy!
  20. Ral Partha Wizard with Staff

    So just finished this one up last night, wizard with staff from an old Ral Partha line. I actually like this figure quite a lot because he's an older guy, but has decided not to become a old, long-haired, long-bearded wizard in a big, billowing cloak, rather he's tried to keep himself a little more up with the times with some sensible clothing and a hair cut.
  21. My first caster for Frostgrave. Harsh and honest critiques are most welcome.
  22. I was going for a Final Fantasy White Mage type deal.
  23. This is the last of my painted figures from recent weeks. I wanted to do him up in dark colors, without using a lot of black. I don't have a specific character in mind, and this way he can fit a variety of roles if he ever sees use on a game table. Now to rest up and clean the table for the big weekend!
  24. Dark Sword Female Mage

    Ok, this one is all Ub3r's fault. During a Facebook conversation he talked me into attending and entering the Southern California Area Historical Miniature Show last month. I had just received an order from Dark Sword which contained this mini and I had to paint her. I pictured her coming up to a ravine in a forest that was not easily crossed with a creek or river running through it. Ub3r suggest a broken bridge and since I had already been thinking of doing an intact bridge, I went with it. So she was painted up and entered. I entered three pieces into their Advanced Painters, Fantasy category: this one; Albert from Hasslefree; and my Dark Sword Assassin from last September. As this was an open/medal competition, she was chosen as the piece judged and got me a Silver Medal, both of which means that my skills have improved since last year. Without further ado: ]
  25. Love the stereotypical wizard. Judging by his hat and beard size, I'd say he's about 5th level..
