  1. My latest Bone lll offering. Can't say I enjoyed the one. Has real problems with the armour and not really happy with the end results. May have been better using metallics. the shield turned out OK.
  2. 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. :)
  3. 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!
  4. Percival

    Presenting Percival, a knight of renown from Kingdom Death. Not massively happy with the face on this one, I was trying to give her a very pale complexion but it didn't really work. I also could've done a better job on her hair (I was just very intimidated by it for some reason). I am pretty pleased with the rest of her though. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  5. 03149 Justine, Undead Hunter

    So what class would a Undead Hunter be? Paladin?
  6. The Twilight Ninja

    Presenting the Twilight Ninja from Kingdom Death, she was their special edition mini for last years Black Friday sale. I've had this one painted up for a little while, but I've been struggling to come up with a new photo setup (of course, the eventual solution was annoyingly simple). She's a little rough in places, I had to repaint bits of her bodysuit a few times too many, but I think she ended up looking pretty nifty. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  7. Couldn't resist starting on his guy as soon as he arrived! I'm not sure what a Bloodreaper is, but they look like this:- Although mine currently looks like this:- As it would be pretty much impossible to paint the inside of his coat, or his legs, once assembled, I'm getting them out of the way first. Although you can't see it, the inside of his coat is mostly done. It's been based in 2:1 Vallejo Hexed Lichen/Vallejo Pure Black, then shaded with 1:1 Hexed Lichen/Pure Black and 1:2 Hexed Lichen/Pure Black. Just need to highlight up the open flap. The boots are completely finished. They were based with Vallejo Leather Brown, then highlighted with 2:1 Leather Brown/Vallejo Iraq Sand and 1:2 Leather Brown/Iraq Sand. They also got Vallejo Bronze buckles and Tanned Leather laces and finally a glaze of Brownshade Wash.
  8. 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!
  9. The Dung Beetle Knight

    Originally ordinary insects, the Dung Beetle Knights evolved humanoid forms to fool their enemies. The Knight:- Mr. Ball:- My first result in my attempt to spend the year getting some more of my Kingdom Death minis painted up. Had a lot of fun with these two, and I'm pretty pleased with the results. The Knight could've done with a highlight on the armour segments to make the cracks pop a bit more, but I was unwilling to gamble on my brush control being up to the job. Any comments or criticisms are, as always, warmly received.
  10. Wise Frodulf: RBG

    Wise Frodulf by Red-Box-Games Sculpted by Tre Manor Here is my rendition of Frodulf. He goes a long with my warband color scheme. This OSL (Object Source lighting) is one of three real steps into the technique. I am happy with the way it turned out. I used an small handheld LED to check lighting for the sword. I kind of broke the rule about the rest of the model being darker for OSL but I wanted him to stand out on the battle field. My free hand work seems to be getting better too with the triangle pattern on him as well. And finally, I sculpted the bricks myself out of greenstuff. I really hope you guys like him.
  11. Everyman Gaming - Kitsune Samurai

    Since I posted some of my work where I converted certain reaper miniatures into kitsune a while ago, I figured I would post one of the newer kitsune that I've painted recently. I got this miniature from "Everyman Gaming", they have been getting a site called imagine3dminiatures.com to 3d print miniatures for them. This miniature was a bit difficult to paint because I had to clean off a lot of plastic nubs that were leftover from the 3d printing process. I kept finding more even after I primed the miniature. I also had to cut the mini off of its 30mm base and glue it to one of reaper's 1 inch scale bases. However, in the end the mini came out very well! Well, some parts came out a bit messy, like the gold on the shield, and the black wash. Luckily, in real life people won't be able to see the messy black wash that I put on the mini, lol. Painting this mini was a lot of fun, so I'm planning to paint Everyman's nine tailed kitsune miniature soon :D
  12. Ral Partha Female Fighter - Queen

    So another old Partha piece that I just finished. I don't think the photos are the greatest and there is such lack of mercy when you see your piece so close up but here we go: I think she came out reasonably well. She had a huge shield that I just didn't want to leave blank, so I did a bit of freehand, but I'm wondering sometimes my artistic talents when I do these, as this little Pegasus reminds me more of a little rag doll horsey than a noble beast of flight. It's just really hard to get too much detail in such a small area which is about the size of a dime. This one was originally a set of four females, originally called Queens from different cultures by Dennis Mize, really nice set. Enjoy!
  13. Sarayad (dryad)

    One of the last pieces I painted for 2016, a sarayad, or noble dryad from DGS Games. She is going to really surprise some PCs one day.
  14. Gabrielle

    My final figure for 2016, Gabrielle by Bombshell. I slightly altered the position of her arm, and changed her stance by basing her on a step, so it looks more like she is running, rather than lunging. Really proud of her face, I used a magnifying glass in addition to my usual painting glasses, so I could get the detail.
  15. Quest for the perfect NMM blade

    I started experimenting with NMM, and there are so many cool NMM tutorials over the web that I decided to try a couple. I got this pewter blade I can strip and re-paint as many times I want. This is the first attempt, I was roughly following this tutorial: It didn't turn out as nice as the blade in the tutorial, but I'm still kind of happy with it. NMM is still magic for me :) Advice is welcome and appreciated!
  16. Okay, here we go. I have this lovely Warpwolf Stalker, which I painted a while ago. I have, since I leveled up a bit, revisited the stalker. Here is the original picture: Here is the current front view (and other views) I'm really happy with the extension of what I have done with him, and I'm much happier with the figure as a whole. Any C&C is welcome, but I think I improved significantly from the initial painting to the reworking I've done on this one. C&C is welcome on this one.
  17. An Angry Warrior

    I actually have no idea where this guy came from, which might explain his attitude. That and I painted him in a hurry... I imagine him picking his way through the mossy scree to get even with me for my messy paint job. ;-) Anyone know how I could find the source of this mini? I probably bought him a decade ago or more.
  18. Hello fellow Forumites! I always enjoy coming back from ReaperCon, as my creative battery has been recharged and I'm ready to paint again! I'm currently working on a special project for someone who plays fierce female barbarian brawlers in her Dungeons & Dragons campaigns. I'm even painting it in her image, complete with upper leg tattoos. Reaper's "Viking Girl" sculpted by Bobby Jackson was the perfect choice for this! I'm still not convinced I can pull off this freehand tattoos, but I try something new in every project and I can always paint over it in skin tone if it becomes too overwhelming. I'm using Reaper's Highland Moss & Pale Lichen for the cloak. After taking Rhonda Bender's "Level Up" class at ReaperCon, I've decided to experiment with more interesting shadow colors in my minis. In the past, I would have chosen a dark olive green for the shadows of the cloak, however, this time I've mixed the mid tone Highland Moss with a touch of Nightshade Purple for the darkest folds and recesses of her cloak. After that, I started to layer in more of the midtone color mixed with Pale Lichen (~50//50 mix). I blend as I go and make my way up to Pale Lichen on the highlights of the folds. While I may go up an additional level of highlight, mixing in some Pure White with Pale Lichen, I'll see how much contrast I have on other sections of the mini once she's almost done. Either way, the back of the cloak could use some additional smooth blending, so I'll be sure to revisit that at a later time. Here's what I've painted so far, each step follows each set of images starting from top to bottom. Step 1: Basecoats & shadows for cloak, hair and gems Step 2: Cloak highlights. Repeat steps 1 & 2 on front loincloth-cloak thingy. Blend, blend, blend... Step 3: Hair highlights (more to come), fur, gems, jewelry & starting on the sword Next up is finishing her sword, then boots, gloves and shield. And then maybe I'll consider giving her some dirt on the bottom of her cloak as a final touch (if I can bring myself to smear pigment over something I've painstakingly blended lol) However, I'm having a hard time deciding where to place her eyes since her hair covers a portion of each eyeball, which makes it especially tricky. I'll need to make sure to leave enough white sclera in each eye to make the direction clear. I'm leaning toward painting her looking left, toward her sword, like she's threatening someone or pointing at something on the ground. What do you think?
  19. With me being a bit more excited about all things Kingdom Death at the moment, I put this guy on the table. So far:- I'm getting a basecoat down on the cloth parts, we've got Vallejo Hexed Lichen, Vallejo Scarlett Red, Vallejo Royal Blue and Oiled Leather. Originally the Oiled Leather was just a step towards eventually orange stripes, but I'm really liking how it looks next to the purple, so they may stay.
  20. Imperial Guard, Officer, GW

    Finished this guy the other day. I am happy with how the face turned out.:
  21. 77282 Vampire

    I painted up Drac on Halloween because why wouldn't I? I actually started painting him last Halloween and shelved him for a year.
  22. The Pirate

    Another Games Workshop mini (at this point you should probably assume anything I paint is from there unless stated otherwise), a former Dark Elf Fleetmaster (I'm not sure what his new, fancy Age of Sigmar name is). This guy was a serious pain in the bum to paint, even with my tiny brushes I was forever getting paint on the wrong bits, in hindsight I probably should have realized fully assembling him first was a big mistake. But I persevered and I don't think the final results are too bad! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  23. The Barbarian

    Unsurprisingly, another Games Workshop mini. This time it's the mighty Barbarian Hero Class Character from their Silver Tower board game. Had a lot of fun painting this guy up, it certainly made a change from all the heavily armoured dudes I've been working on lately, and I think the finished mini is one of my best to date. Also got a chance to try out some of my new grass tufts, I'm in love with the Sandy Tuft so expect to see those little suckers on everything. As always, and comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  24. Picked this up on E-Bay because she fits an NPC in my game. Photography is not one of my strong points. I did her base with static grass and a skull on the ground in front of her (not in the pic). I thought the skin came out nice.
