    WotC Lich repaint

    This is a re-paint of one of Wizards of the Coast's pre-painted plastic D&D miniatures. According to the information moulded under the base, it's a Lich Necromancer. I tried to get his cloak looking like a fairly freshly flayed skin, though with fairly limited success. WotC's pre-painted miniatures are extremely variable in quality, both in sculpting and in painting. This isn't one of their best in either respect, but neither is it one of their worst.
  2. Wizards of the Coast's Dungeons & Dragons Fire Giant Stalking the Steps This 25mm scale Fire Giant isn't humongous by today's miniature line standards but he has a lot of character. The sculptors, Chaz Elliot and then apprentice, Jason Wiebe, put a lot of great detail into this fellow. I personally love the knowing grin on his face. However, partly because of the scale and the sculpted position of the giant, I felt he wasn't set up right. So he was reposed a smidge. When I first looked him over at the work table, I held him on a slab of slate and tried to visualize him on a game board. It's fairly obvious that he was originally meant to be looking down at the puny humans before him but against the more prolific 28-32mm scale miniatures I own, he was looking at their chests or groins. So after playing around with slate pieces such, I finally figure him out. He needed his sword level. Well his arms were tight to his chest so repositioning the weapon that way would require practically resculpting him. But ... if I cut apart the integral base and and changed the elevation of his feet he looked like he was slinking up some stairs. Thus the step and repose. You can check out his painting WIP. The repositioning and base construction was done a long time ago before I was doing WIP posts. Enjoy. Added to Thrym's General Show Off List

    DnD/Pathfinder prepaint re/speed paints

    Did some painting this weekend and I was pleasently surprised that I managed to finish my latest purchases, All are speedpaints with a heavy dose of Army Painters Strong Tone wash to finish them. A few gnolls (Gnolls, Gnoll Slaver and Gnoll Warriors) Two grimlocks Two kobold guards Three kuo-toas (one archpriest and two regular) Two lizardman fighters One roper. I'm really pleased with how this one turned out.
  4. Couple experiments were done on this one this morning, one ongoing on the paint's durability. Just dropping it off here because Grumpy Cave Bear seemed interested in the WIP thread.

    WOTC Chainmail Crested FellDrake

    This cute little fella is a Crested Felldrake made by WoTc for their Chainmail line of figures. I painted him up during the paint binge. You can't tell from the pictures (and I took a ton trying to get some decent ones) but his eyes are painted. C&C is welcome.

    D&D Chainmail Ogre Trooper

    Angry female ogre..nuff said. This miniature was entirely painted, as all my figures are with a Round #1 brush from Reaper and Reaper MSP. I've dedicated myself to steadily improving my glazing practices throughout the year and this is making me feel like I'm getting somewhere. As with all my painting, none of the shading or highlighting you see is a result of photography. The paints I used: Ultramarine shadow, blue liner, tanned leather, auburn shadow, burgundy wine (a new favorite), misty grey, dark elf skin, woodstain brown, earth brown, blackened brown, brains pink, driftwood brown, fresh blood, vampiric shadow, splintered bone, dirty bone, ruddy leather. Since I'm terrible at WIP threads I thought I would include a synopsis of the painting of the skin: The ogre got a base-coat of ultramarine shadow Wash of blue liner, emphasis on the "darker" areas 2 glazes of a color combo of (2 brains pink: 3 driftwood brown) Blue liner wash 1 glaze of burgundy wine 1 highlighting glaze of (1 brains pink: 1 driftwood brown...6 drops of water added to that mix) 1 highlighting glaze of the above with burgundy wine added to blend 1 glaze of the above with fresh blood and brains pink added 1 glaze of the above with vampiric shadow added 1 glaze of (1 brains pink: 1 splintered bone) 2 glazes of 1:1:1 of brains pink, burgundy wine, driftwood brown I hope you like what I've done but I'm always open to C&C and any thoughts on improvement.

    Pre-paint Re-paint

    This is a re-paint of a pre-paint of a Deep Dragon. I had two WotC plastic Deep Dragons, but no Green Dragon, so I figured I might as well give one of them a make-over. As well as painting it, I ripped it off its original plastic base and re-based it on a large panel-washer with some epoxy putty and a bit of flocking — the flock does tend to gather dust, but it covers a host of evils when it comes to basing. This, incidentally, is the original factory paint-job. It's pretty underwhelming. I very seldom use dragons in my game. I was traumatized by a session in which the dragon was supposed to be a massive boss-fight, but which turned into complete farce when the dragon was taken out by a single lucky hit from aSword of Sharpness before the fight had even really got started. We were using a pretty vicious critical-hits system back then, so it was really my own fault.
  8. This is the Chainmail Mordengard Dwarf Fighter from Wizards of the Coast. I am painting my Mordengard Dwarves with an alternate color scheme to represent a planetouched dwarven subrace. This dwarven subrace all have grey skin, all black eyes, and metallic hair.
  9. Another mini from the long-held stash (don't know the sculptor, unfortunately): Wrong color green for a troglodyte, I suppose. Anyway, I finally got some washes (from Reaper), so I tried washing this guy wth the brown. I can't tell if it worked or not. I did a little bit of lining after it. And highlighting. I'm not sure what the wash accomplished. Meh. I'm pleased with how it came out, all in all, though I'm sure there are lessons to be learned, here. Please, tell me what they are.

    Another Draconian WIP

    We use a lot of draconians, and there's never any that look just right. For this character we needed a 10' tall gold draconian. Having used up all the awesome reptus guys from reaper, and not having found anything bigger and cooler looking, we were at our wits end for him. Then one day I was looking at the shelf above my desk and said "Sweetie, what if we used this sivak draconian for Kezeran?" (that's the character's name). He's bigger than the others, he's cool looking, and best of all, he's made of plastic! The plan is to repose his arms so that he's weaponless, and use green stuff to sculpt cool looking claws on him. Here he is after I took out his weapon. I tried boiling him like a bones mini to repose his arms but that didn't work. I also tried soaking him in Simple Green to take the paint off but all that did was make him stink of licorice. I hate the smell of licorice.
  13. Well my project to paint all of my Castle Ravenloft miniatures finally came to an end this morning when I finished the Dracolich. Now these are all speed painted to tabletop standard so nothing fancy. The basic technique was to paint the base colours, wash with black and then paint the highpoints back in the midtone, maybe add some highlights a shade or two higher. The only exception is the Dracolich, which is only slightly more detailed in painting with a bit more highlighting - most of its extra work is in the wings. So here we go; Closer Pictures; Solo picture of the Dracolich; If people want pictures of the individual models I'm happy to share those as well, but I figured we were already getting a little picture intensive.
