  1. This is the mini that I painted for Fanguad for the Spring Exchange. Got it out late due to life interfering and had to be satisfied with a more simple paint job then originally planned. Please excuse the photo quality, I had no time to get everything out to take proper ones.
  2. My latest. I base coated with Army Painter matte black then dry brushed with Citadel Astorath Red. A wash of Citadel Carroburg Crimson to finish off the red. I then trimmed with AP gold. The base was just some simple Citadel texture paint. kinda turned out pretty Khorne-ish. Let me me know what you think.
  3. This ended up being a speed paint, the patterns and fiddly bits just painted up super quick, around 2 hours. I painted her just so I could glue her cloak on. Added two mushrooms I had laying around from previous putty leftovers.
  4. I am new to Warlord (but certainly not to RPGs or Tabletop Wargames). Like many I have walked away from Games Workshop since they destroyed Warhammer Fantasy and try as I might I just can't bring myself not to despise Age of Sigmar which is a pathetic attempt to emulate the success of World of Warcraft. Off-shoot adaptation games such as Kings of War, The IXth Age or Frostgrave just don't seem to cut it for me and I'm not interested in Warmachine or Hordes. And so in my meanderings I have stumbled upon Warlord which I find most intriguing, with just the right sort of balance between D&D RPG and tabletop wargame. In doing my homework I have read both good and poor reviews of the game. Some have exhorted Warlord with many sterling qualities, qualities which have tickled my fancy. However, some of these reports seem to be quite old. Other, more recent, reports have explained that the popularity of Warlord is incredibly limited and that many people struggle to find a game and go elsewhere. Joining these forums I notice the age of many of the recent posts and they have me a little worried. So I wanted to get it from the horse's mouth. How popular is Warlord these days? Living in a capital city is it easy enough to find a game? Thank you for your honest advice.
  5. Thought I would Try my hand at something different. My dad ordered the Band of Brothers learn to play bolt action set, Knowing him it would never get built or painted so I took it apon myself to expand my painting portfolio and get some amazing historical miniatures under my belt. The plan was to shoot for right around tabletop standard and once I do a little more weathering and get the decals on I'm going to call that my tabletop +. As always feed back is both appreciated and encouraged. If you see something you like feel free to ask how I did it, I'm usually good at getting back to people. If you liked this and would like to see more work like it please feel free to follow me here or on my Facebook page facebook.com/TabletopGlory
  6. This is a fresh start for a thread I feel I knocked off kilter. I feel it may be justified in that I've finally started actually painting the creature. This is Reaper's 14532: Aislinn, Shadow Tracker, a large werewolf (the base is a 40mm square) from the Koborlas faction in their Warlord game. I had a request from a player for a werewolf who can shift genders and appear gender ambiguous, and this seemed a good place to start. The sculpt is meant to be female, but it is lean and muscly and not over-bosomy. I filed it down somewhat and off we go. ... I don't seem to have done my usual practice of documenting the priming (a light coat of thinned Titanium White and a wash of Burnt Umber on the creature only, leaving the base white for snow), so here is the first layer. I decided to paint this one as a white wolf. I've observed that "white" wolves are actually a creamy light brown, so that's how I've painted this one. The color is mixed from Yellow (Iron) Oxide, Burnt Umber, a bit of Ultramarine Blue to tone down the brightness, and Titanium White. It came out a sort of dull buff, a good blonde color. The color is laid on thin and translucent. Where the Burnt Umber underneath shows the color shifts to a sort of bluish shadow. I indicated the nose, eyes, lips, and claws with Carbon Black. I don't use pure black much, but I needed a little facial indication to work from. Had a little blue on my palette, so I swished in some snow shadows. These are two mixes: Phthalo Blue with a tiny bit of Hansa Yellow Opaque and a great deal of Titanium White; and Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White.
  7. Bear with me on this, it has been a while since I've done a WIP. Given my House affiliation updates may be sporadic. If you read the monthly goal threads in the tabletop sub-forum you'll know that I recently completed (mostly) an inventory of my unpainted figures. This has given me some desire to actually sit down and paint more often. I decided to go with the Hill Giant because he's been haunting my lead pile for about 10 years now and already had his skin base coated about 5 years ago IIRC. That and I've always liked the general look of the sculpt on this one. I have two objectives with this piece: to reestablish my basic painting skills and to get it done to boost my general well being and good will towards completing others. I'm not looking for a display or competition quality piece, I want it done. The desired end-state is tabletop or slightly better. I remembered that when I base coated the skin the idea was to start with the darkest colors and highlight my way up rather than my modus operandi of base coating the mid tone, highlighting, then washing. Tonight's goal was to base coat as much as possible before getting tired or losing interest. I got the hair (though it appears I missed a spot on the belly), loincloth, fur, and tree trunk club done before I decided I should probably get stuff put away. The base coats are: skin - MSP Tanned Skin Shadow, hair and club - Ceramcoat Walnut Brown, Fur - MSP Chestnut Gold, loin cloth - MSP Buckskin Pale, and the ropes holding the wrist piece - MSP HD Desert Tan. I plan to reuse the same browns as much as possible as I work my way up to my highlights to try to tie the different parts together. More to follow as I find time to work on it.
  8. While I have been painting realistic wolves, I have also been working on some of the gorgeous giant wolfmen sculpted by Julie Guthrie for the Koborlas faction in Reaper's "Warlord" game. This is #14528, the subtly-named "Rageclaw Slayer", or the testosterone-poisoned werewolf a friend of mine requested. He's a big puppy; I include a copy of Reaper's 60164, Vampire Hunter, for scale: This is my standard priming of a thin layer of Titanium White followed by a thin wash of diluted Burnt Umber, using my favorite Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. I left the base white in order to paint it as snow. Those who have been following my regular wolf painting thread will recognize the steps here. First I mixed a cool neutral grey from Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White and painted it on his limbs, face, and belly: Then I mixed a darker version of the same grey and painted his back and tail: Then I mixed a cream-buff color from Burnt Sienna, Yellow Oxide, a tiny bit of Ultramarine Blue to take the orange edge off, and Titanium White, and went over his face, limbs, and belly again: And finally I took some pure Carbon Black (a color I rarely use except for special effects) and laid in his eyes, nose, lips, and claws (Although I just noticed I missed his toe claws. Oh, well, next time.). I also washed a little diluted black over his darker fur, most noticeable on the parts of the tail I had missed earlier: He still looks rough and terrible, especially up close, but I have to admit I am rather pleased with the overall color impression.
  9. This one puzzled me for quite a while, then annoyed me for even longer. Gray fur almost worked, then not at all. I tried steel colours, then bronze, and even to make the sword look like some sort of black glassy rock... It just screamed NO at me. So I gave it another bath in the Pit of Regret, washed it off and gave it a coat of gray primer, then sat down and studied it.... Yeah, it had to be done like this. I still have a bit of a problem with getting good pictures, but... The colours is MSP Shadowed Stone as base and MSP Weathered stone drybrushed on top. The Gold is Dwarven Gold,and the blue on the headdress is Oceanic Blue, with more Weathered Stone drybrushed over to 'age' it a bit. The eyes and the jewels in the swordhilt is Tamiya Clear Red. It was given a coat of matte varnish, but it's still a bit too shiny, I think. I think it should fit well at the entrance of a tomb or something.
  10. I need help sorting out some minis to use use in the Warlord tournament at ReaperCon. I just know that in my mountain of unpainted lead there is at least one Warlord army. I know I will need to use some proxy models and that those need to be other Reaper Minis. The problem is in some cases I am no longer certain whether some of these guys are a Reaper model or OMM. I could use some help with identification of the minis in the pics that follow: The army I have the most (authentic Warlord) figs for is Reven. Some of the winged guys above are candidates to proxy as harpies. Is that a Reaper minotaur? I am pretty sure the ogre is one of Reaper's. I am hoping the first three are Reaper and not GW beastmen. The rest of these are candidates to proxy as either bugbears or beastmen. Suggestions for which of the above could be proxied for what and/or model numbers would be very helpful. Also, definitive info that mini-X came from non-Reaper source-Y would be just as good.
  11. Gauntfield, Necropolis Hero Yup, another WIP. Gauntfield has been in my kit for years. He has received most of the excess green stuff from everything I've ever built. I wanted the scarecrow to be standing behind a tree trunk, gnarled and dead for many years. So I started out by applying him to a base that filled the space up to his feet on the slot bottom he had and built the basis for his tree. As you can see, I used two skewer pieces as the center posts and set the "fork" of the tree I was looking for. Then I placed terrarium rocks around it to fill out the bottom of the trunk. Then over the years I scraped on any excess green stuff I had from projects. Tonight's effort was the eye of my Undead Dwarf. A very tiny amount of green stuff. Which is a little hard to mix and create at that size. It was smaller than a pin head. So the remainder went around one of the upright trunks from the tree of Gauntfield. Then after some thought on my efforts to create a bark exterior I decided the whole tree needed a skin and fill of some of the unnatural sections of green stuff. So I got out my green putty and went to town on the surface of the tree. I had primed the scarecrow and tree earlier so I just went right over that. You'll notice that the "skin" added is a bit rough. I'll go over it in a bit and clean it up once it's set a bit more. If I like the appearance of it, I will prime that and move on. If not, I will go over that a more until I am happy. Green putty is also a great product to smooth over a surface. So I made some of the sand around Gauntfield smooth with the putty while I was working the tree. Green putty dries really quick so within a few minutes I can sand the surface of it with my thumb or stiff brush. I have an old toothbrush for this. So, here's a second skim of "bark" with the Green Putty. I cut off the excess bamboo skewers and created a branch collar on each end where the trunks would get overgrown with the bark. Just below the saddle of the two trunks, I added a third trunk that has broken off and left a branch collar using the Green Putty. You can see that I "sanded" some of the skin and added more. Stay tuned.
  12. Hi Folks! I wanted to share some pics before I send off my painted mini for the Secret Sophie Holiday 2016 exchange. I used 100% Reaper paints and the colors I used are listed below. See my work in progress photos here. Reaper Paints Used: Corporeal Shadow Clouded Sea Brown Liner Dark Highlights Desert Stone Driftwood Brown Aged Bone Linen White Royal Purple* Blue Liner Pure White Golden Shadow Elf Flesh *edited to add gem color
  13. Feels good to have one under my belt this early in the year. Of course, I started it in 2014, but that a minor detail... Pete will be part of a painting fundraiser for our local Children's Hospital later this year, assuming everything goes as planned. As always, questions and comments most welcome!
  14. Hiyo! I started working on the second painted mini for the upcoming 2016 Secret Sophie exchange, Arthrand Nightblade from the Warlord series. He'll hopefully make a great ranger character for my mystery partner! While there are many great painted examples of him already, I wanted to paint him in something other than greens and browns. I chose a blue and cream color scheme for my main colors– the rest will be neutral browns. I'll paint lighter, worn leather (or maybe linen?) wraps around his quiver and darker browns for his boots and bow. I still haven't decided on his hair color though... More to come after the Thanksgiving holiday! I hope everyone has a lovely weekend. Thanks for taking a look
  15. Been working on this guy lately. Trying to knock the dust off my brushes a little. The pics are fair but I need to still purchase a photo box so cell phone it is.. I gave him a beard cause he wanted one. He will add to my unending pile of crusaders, but at least he will have some paint:)
  16. Here is my latest work, the metal Reaper Warlord Marilith snake demoness. I tried to give her an otherworldly appearance with smooth blue skin and lava-orange serpentine scales. For her clothing/armour I used gold as it has something of a Mayan or Aztec look.
  17. I've been hitting a slump in my painting that's been keeping me from these forums for quite a while. I'm trying to regain my rythm and getting some pieces done. This is one of them: Gorak the Ravanger from the Warlords Miniature Lines. He was supposed to be a stand in for my current monk character in a DnD5 game, although I'm having second thoughts. Still love the miniature though. Seems quite angry :)
  18. Here's a few of the dwarves I've been painting up. Reposted with some better pictures this time. There's more but this is plenty for one post.
  19. I was playing around this evening with photo equipment and software and took some pictures of these guys. They were all painted over 10 years ago, back when Warlord was young, but I never took any proper pictures of them until now. There are a few more photos on my blog.
  20. I've always been a fan of the Dark Maiden sculpts and started painting the standard Warlord version last month. The idea that I had for her was a bit more lively than the version DKS has up on the store page. Rather than being all ghostly I had a more lively animating spirit in mind. I painted her upper body in a fairly normal manner and then blended her dress down into wood. She's still animated though, so her skin is not actually painted with normal "skintones." Instead it is painted using the same paints that I used for the normal wood, just mixed together a bit differently. Speaking of wood, there is quite a lot of it to paint. If you ever want to get some practice in this is a good choice. I also wanted to try out a sea base. I have had very little experience using water effects and gave them a go. After an initial layer of Realistic Water to cover the paint I added some water effects. They didn't look too bad so I added on another layer to give the water even more depth. That actually worked ok, at which point I decided to attempt sea foam. I'm not as much of a fan as to how the sea foam is looking. The water effects seem like they can be cut away and redone, but just in case that messes everything up even more I've gone ahead and taken some show-off pics. If the operation is a success (and I remember) I'll update this thread next week. But just in case I don't, ignore the white and you can imagine what the sea looked like in a time before foam. Can you tell I'm posting while half asleep? Here's the post-op pic. Most of the foam is now gone and the cut away areas can be repaired easily enough. I didn't cut right up against the mini since I didn't want to scrape away any paint.
  21. 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.
  22. Heya Got inspired this weekend. I present for your viewing the Elven Hunting "Cat" 14453. I am not sure how I am going to base the army hence the just brown base. I'm going for a fantasy look on this force, it's for my Spawn. She wants dragons and magic looking things. Hence the color.. This was a fun paint. I like painting beasties.. There are colorations of his fur, but cell phone cameras being what they are and missing lightbox. Excuse the bad photos..
  23. On one of my trips over the border to the lovely "Atomic Empire", I found a piece that will probably be announced for Bones IV now that I've bought it, "Skadi, Dwarf Goddess". At least she was discounted! She struck me as the perfect Giant rather than a Dwarf Goddess I may never use in an RPG encounter. I already had several female Frost Giants, and her whole forge theme seemed to strike me as more of a Fire Giant thing. So, here we have, Skadi, Fire Giant Priestess of the Forge!
  24. My second attempt at doing NMM. Hope you all like it. Please give as honest a criticism as possible for me to improve. Dont worry it is not possible to hurt my feelings, so fire away. Thankyou!
  25. This is my metal Korgug. I painted him up as a Wikkawak which is a white bugbear that lives in the northern snow covered climes of the Pathfinder world. In the picture the shield shading doesn't look deep enough, but I thought it looked good in person. I may have to take snother look and perhaps give it a thin coat of my walnut ink. Also he's on a base similar to the giant I panted rather than a snow base because I intend to use him in Warlord and wanted him to have a base similar to other reven members. edit: I may have to att a little more flocking to areas to cover up where more of where I cut away his broccoli base.
