  1. 77084 Townsfolk Innkeeper Bones

    This guy was to experiment on achieving realistic light colors on a fairly smooth surface (the apron in this case). After several different tries I was happy with the result...then like normal he sat on the paint desk for months. So I decided to finish him to low tabletop level and wash him in ArmyPainters midtone shade which led to a big tied mark. But he is good enough for my sons toy box. C&C appreciated.
  2. I finally picked up my brushes again and reached for Oswald the Overladen.
  3. My D&D group's cleric picked the torch and scythe wielding townsfolk from this pack: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/townsfolk/latest/03123 My D&D group's cleric is an herbalist cleric. He provides the.... healing... herbs. Medicinal use herbs. He's an exceedingly chipper and happy character, much to the annoyance of the emo necrobard. But he uses a scythe, and decided to go with this figure. I don't like this figure. It has an ANGRY face. Super grumpy. All of the grump. Terrible choice for that character. Player told me that I didn't have to go high on the detail with it, so I didn't do as much as my usual. I still practiced OSL and I tried to turn the frown upside-down. I think the result is that he now looks like a very happy mass murderer, instead of just generically pissed. Anyway, rip it to shreds, lemme know what I can do better in the future. I didn't do the most exciting blending or layering or glazing by any stretch deliberately, though. I also was using a different location for my camera and I didn't feel like getting a perfect setup, so stuff is crooked and I'm not going to go back and take more photos. *HARUMPH*.
  4. 77085 Townsfolk: Wench speedpaint

    Trying my hand at speed painting. This was not done in one sitting, but total time was about 2.5 hours, which is less than half the time it normally takes me to paint a thing. Not perfect, but pretty darn good (for me, anyway) for the time spent. Here is the Wench: Didn’t plan anything out beforehand; color selection was spur of the moment. Her dress is Royal Purple with Nightmare Black shadow, and some BCA Pink mixed in for highlights. Top and apron are Lantern Yellow up through Candlelight Yellow. Tanned Skin triad was used for her flesh, and various leather colors for her hair and accessorizing accessories. Highlights didn’t really work out around her backside, but there was no time to fret over it. And you can’t really tell from the awful photo, but I finally managed to paint a decent eye. And forgot eyebrows. Whoops. C&C welcome.
  5. My D&D group's cleric is a follower of Chauntea, a plant goddess. He wields a scythe. He's also incredibly short for a human. He's absurdly chipper. He's the city's marijuana grower and distributor. For some reason, the player picked this figure, one of the townsfolk, to represent his character. I don't like this figure. Player stated that I could do low detail on him. I'm not sure there is a sufficient paint job to give him a cheerful face. C&C as I go is welcome. He isn't going to be one I super nitpick but I'd like him to be generally tidy. Might attempt OSL for practice. Oh bother. I thought I was in the WIP forums. Serves me right for doing this on the phone. Mod help pretty please?
  6. Well, I'm not actually painting anything at work today...because I'm not going to work today. Suffice to say, we tried a new Chinese restaurant the other day, and it has not gone well. BUT! I posted a teaser in my last Lunch Sessions thread, and now I can go ahead and start this one. Prep work is done, so when I do get back into the office I can actually start laying paint. Here's what's going on this time around: Privateer Press has just started their Minicrate program, a subscription-based monthly "crate" of, well, miniatures. They are all special edition minis available only through the crate subscription. When I saw the first mini they planned to release, I almost got a subscription before realizing I probably wouldn't care overmuch about most of the minis involved past the first...we'll see if I regret that decision later, but the good news is: @chaosscorpion did subscribe, and was willing to work out a trade for the Swamp Siren in exchange for a warlock for his fledgling Trollbloods army. (if you care to see the mini in question, @Ghool just posted a really lovely painted version) Chaosscorpion was good enough to send the Swamp Siren over already, so I have her waiting for the day I paint her up...I have plans to do a resin-water base for her eventually. And I have procured and prepped Borka Kegslayer: I do have one specific instruction for this fella: Tartan! Chaosscorpion also provided a specific family tartan for me to replicate: Now, I've done a good bit of freehand, and a fair number of stripes, but never any actual plaid. So I decided I'd get some practice in first, which is where this preview pic comes in: This is the backside of one of the new Wizkids Pathfinder unpainted line, from the "Merchants" set. By way of a quick review, these are cheap and nicely detailed. They are pre-prepped and pre-primed, and I was impressed with both the lack of mold lines (still a few, but nothing egregious. For NPCs or townsfolk I'm not too worried) and the complete coverage of the primer. I was surprised to find the primer was every bit as hydrophobic as bare Bonesium, but eventually I got a basecoat down. I'm planning to paint her dress in plaid, using the Aitken tartan: I chose this tartan because it has roughly the same pattern as Chaosscorpion's, although in different colors. It's likely I'm overthinking the process, but I want to be as accurate as I can when I get to the plaid on Borka. So that's where I am at this point. I likely won't do any further painting until Wednesday (there's an office Halloween thing tomorrow), but I've got a bit of a start!
  7. 77086 Townsfolk: Strumpet

    Another quickie for practice, comments and criticism welcome: I wanted to try painting white cloth, specifically on the ruffles. Circumstances dictated that this become grayish ruffles, as often happens, so her shirt became gray as well (on purpose). It pairs well with the blue at least. The highlights in her dress turned out fantastic! And then were accidentally wrecked due to a mixup of blues. I salvaged what I could. Never really tried black hair with highlights before, not sure it came out right. The only black I have is Black Ink, and used some Breonne Blue to highlight. Didn’t spend a lot of time on it though. Still can’t do eyes right, but I like the way her lips and jewelry turned out. It’s not really visible in these shots, but I managed to dot her necklace quite well (for me). Never came up with anything interesting for the shoe, however. Base is Ginger Cookie (and probably not quite dry). I like this sculpt, but there are mold lines something fierce. I got many, but am far too chicken to attempt more. A dollar store craft knife is woefully inadequate to the task.
  8. Learning to paint with Bones Pt2

    "finished" a very plain Iron Golem yesterday, and did the townsfolk today. Looking for anything specific tips that might help me, as I am brand new to painting. Really struggling with skin tone today.
  9. OK, so this is one of those "good enough!" moments and I am calling this done! This, actually being the stage for many of my firsts.. My first diorama for starters, my first attempt at making a wire-tree, the first time I used an airbrush and my first (albeit failed) entry to a competition. And it is the moment to call it quits, declare it finished and present to you for much desired C&C. Unfortunately my photography is still very much lacking :( Oh and the reason I couldn't make it to the competition is that I have to go on a business trip abroad on the very day that it will be held.. Oh well, there is always next year I guess.. Thanks for looking.
  10. 03760: Adventuring Kids #1 (Wizard)

    Well, I finally got around to finishing this young fella. Didn't see table use but the two fighter types did for a quick encounter in Hero Kids (Light) to introduce my two nephews to gaming while babysitting them. Maybe next round. Here we go with the Kid Wizard from Reaper's Adventuring Kids pack #1. Thanks for looking and any C&C you feel like sharing. Always appreciated.
  11. Dreadmere Fishmonger and Crone

    This is Reaper 3789 Fishwife and Crone. These are the metal versions of the miniatures coming in Bones 4 as part of the Dreadmere set. Painted up for tabletop gaming use. I painted the fish as a delicious deepwater fish from Norway called "Uer". I have fond memories fishing for these at the shore of the Finnmark fjord, where the drop off was extremely deep. I was sad to find these fish are now considered endangered.
  12. Lidless Eye Hobbies vs Bones 3

    I've completed a second batch of miniatures from Bones 3. I'm glad to be done with them, and some may have been a bit rushed; I bit off a bit more than I could chew. The Plague Marines, Cave Goblins, and some random others were all on the table at the same time. First, a group shot: A bundle of terrain, from the Crypt expansion. One wall is not, and was a sample from the ReaperCon swag bag. It just snuck in! Goremaw, the Devourer of paint! I'm so glad I used craft paints on him, I'm not sure how many bottles of purple I would have gone through otherwise. A Halfling Stereotype. You'd see a statue like this in front of any fantasy pizza place. I hadn't noticed that moldline across his chest until I was uploading the photo...yikes! "Hey you guuuys!" I really enjoyed painting this one. I experimented a bit with his skin and tried to match him to the pale tones of the D&D pre-paint Fomorians. He's not quite there, but I like how he came out. Bandit. One of my favorites from the set. "Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt" gave me a new appreciation for the simple thugs that show up in every game. I hadn't realized he was meant to be wearing pants until I was inking him, and saw the patch over the knee. I liked the lesser-dressed look, so I painted it up to be a bloody bandage slapped over the knee instead. Half-Orc Merchant. Not much to be said about him, I just painted him in the style of my Warhammer Empire troops. Lastly, a bunch of Dwarves. Beagle knows it's not a Kickstarter unless it has a Dwarf or two in it.
  13. Townsfolk Kids WIP

    OK so I'm still trying to figure this new forum out some. So I thought I show my current project.
  14. Decided these two went together, with the grandmother figure maybe working in the innkeeper's inn, and painted them with the same colours. Quickie paint jobs for both. Not thrilled with the way the green turned out...
  15. 77142: Townsfolk: Blacksmith

    Yep, another of the townsfolk! And another relatively speedy paint job, probably about 3 hours total. If I could stop messing up the things I'd just finished so I didn't have to redo the mini half a dozen times, I'd probably be downright fast at this point... I'm finding the greyscale+glaze technique particularly useful for leather... I've always struggled to get decent highlighting on leather, but I feel like this is working out pretty OK. Thoughts?
  16. 77085 Townsfolk: Wench

    This lovely lady was a lot more fun to paint than I'd expected, and I let myself slow down a bit and really experiment with improving my shading and highlighting. I'm super happy with how her dress and apron turned out! Her face...not so much. I'll explain why below the pictures. Oh, and when I was trying to figure out what color to make her hair, even though I think brown would have looked better, I decided I couldn't resist making her a redhead. Yay pictures! I'd put the basecoat on her skin and was about to start highlighting when my right eyelid starting twitching pretty badly. It would go for awhile, then stop, then go for a bit, then stop again, etc. It seriously messed with my ability to focus on close-up work, so I decided to just make a stab at her mouth and leave the rest alone. I'm not super happy with how it turned out, but at least I didn't end up with a Joker-faced bar maid in the end (she was looking kinda scary for awhile, lol). I also didn't get a chance to reduce the lining around her eyes; it's pretty heavy right now. Once I get back to my painting desk on Sunday, I'll tidy it up, highlight her skin, and fix a few little fiddly bits (such as the rag in her pocket that I totally forgot about, and adding shine dots to her eyes). I'm actually really wishing I'd taken the time to remove the mold lines from her; I didn't originally expect her to be more than a 1-2 hour quick paint job. Lesson learned! Colors used (in order from shade to highlight): Dress and hairband: Gothic Crimson Spattered Crimson Big Top Red Apron and shirt: Ginger Cookie 1:1 Ginger Cookie:Linen White Linen White Vest and headband: Frontier Blue Soft Blue Templar Blue Hair: Auburn Shadow Carrot Top Red Highlight Orange Eyes: Brown Liner Linen White Skin: Rosy Shadow Lips: Big Top Red Gothic Crimson (between the lips) Mugs: Driftwood Brown (drink) Linen White (drink) Aged Pewter (mugs) Ground: Brown Liner Driftwood Brown Group picture! Naptime's over! Lady McGee is kind enough to bring over the beeeeeeeeest hot chocolate in the land! (you probably thought I was going to say beer, didn't you? ) Hot chocolate with whipped cream on top is one of my favorite winter treats! Peter spider isn't interested, though. This is the figure I painted for Day 10 of my "paint one mini per day all of November" challenge. Link to index thread: http://forum.reaperm...ay-in-november/ Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  17. Howdy, Hatchet job for NaMiPaMo day 4... Can't touch this. Hammer time, Kev!
  18. Townsfolk - Blacksmith, Reaper Bones

    A quick and dirty version of the Bones Blacksmith I did a while ago. Nothing fancy, basically basecoat + wash + abit of highlight on some stuff.
  19. 02677: Townsfolk IV: Bandit

    I'd finished painting this fellow quite a while ago, but I finally did something with his base. He'll probably get some snow on it as well at some point as I'm intending to use him as a Frostgrave thug, but I'll wait until I've got a few to do and mix up a big batch of snow. I think the photos may have ended up a tad too bright, as some of the shadows don't seem as deep. Still, better than too dark. I was trying to make sure that my black was reading as black and not grey here, so let me know how you think I went with that (or anything else you'd like to comment on).
  20. Oathsworn Pregnant Lady

    This little lady was a joy to paint up. Only issue was a mold line across her face which caused some minor issues painting her lips and nose. This is the best hair I think I have painted.
  21. Lidless Eye Hobbies: The NPCs

    The last trio of my recent paintworks, a bunch of NPC types who would fit around an inn of ill repute. First, we have the Serving Girl from the Reaper Swine Prince set: Then, a Greek civilian from Foundry: And last, a Dwarf barmaid, who I believe was manufactured by Fenryll. It was bought in a pack of other female Dwarves at a convention many moons ago. And the group:
  22. Village Rioter (Bones)(77140)

    Knowing I would be short of time for painting this past week due to Spring Break traveling, I skipped doing another figure from the Bones I Kickstarter "Necromancers" set that I had been working on recently, and instead selected one of the simpler figures from the Bones I Kickstarter "Townsfolk II" set to paint: the Village Rioter. I did a quick tabletop paint job on him and think he turned out pretty good. As always, C & C welcome.
  23. Elven Peasant Archer

    So, the story behind this character plays on the stereotype of elves as forest dwelling archers. This young gal's elven family decided to move into a town and are making their living as farmers. However, young Gwenevieve here takes great pride in her elven heritage and sneaks off when she's supposed to doing chores to practice with her grandfather's bow. I was going for a simple overalls sort of dress, baggy hand-me-down sleeves from the shirt underneath, and barefoot to convey the peasant status. I also gave her short hair as she was going for function over fashion (much to the chagrin of her poor mother). I'll start throwing paint at her sometime soon (when I sit down with my Halfling shield maiden most likely). I'm a bit disappointed by the quality of the photos, but it's my own fault since I haven't had my wife (the tech support) teach me how to use the digital camera she bought. I can't get it to focus on anything.
  24. Fenryll Female Villagers

    These 3 are the Female VIllagers from Fenryll Minitures (FA151) in resin, my husband refers to them as the 3 Cinderellas. This is a tabletop paint job for gaming, though I am pretty worried the one with the bucket is going to break at the ankles, which is why I didn't really remove any flash around her ankles and feet.
  25. 03123 - Townsfolk VIII - Mob

    Here are my first complete models of 2016, and as luck would have it they are two of the Townfold VIII pack. The third was sent away in a box of goodwill. First up is the male figure, not sure about the hair, but he will do for tabletop quality. I need to practice more blond hair. Here is the female mob member as well, as before painted and based to a reasonable tabletop quality. As always comments or suggestions welcome.
