  1. This is the very first fig that I ever bought, 8 or 9 years ago. It was for my first D&D session with some close friends, and I fell in love with the game on the spot. This character has gone through a lot: demonic armor possession, lost both of his eyes, had a hole punched through his chest, died 3 times, came back as a zombie, body taken over by a lich, and currently resurrected in the body of a half-ogre. I have a new fig for the character and his new body, but this one will always have a special place in my heart. I finally got around to painting him over the weekend. His eyes are a little googly, and the attempt at highlighting didn't turn out as well as I had hoped, but I'm glad he turned out OK. Tips on highlighting would be most appreciated, as that's what I was trying out on this one. Thanks as always!
  2. This is my first post. I'm relatively new at this, I've painted fewer than 10 minis, but I really like it. I have Multiple Sclerosis so my hands shale and my vision gets... weird... sometimes, so I tend to take an incredibly long time. Here's a recap of the last 17 hours: My friend I am doing this for is playing a character with only 1 axe, so I removed the second one with wire cutters and used modeling putty to fix where I marred the coat. Still a bit rough. I might put a dagger in his hand or something. Not sure. I found that I need to do their faces first because if I mess up a face on an already painted body it is hard to strip and start over. I noticed that what I thought was hair was actually little robe-orniments so I painted them copper. All his leather belts and buckles were really hard on my hands! I didnt want him to look too much like Thor, so I decided he's a warm-colors kind of guy. I need to learn how to make the metal look reflective like some of you do! The horn on his back is 'Horn of Gondor' colors. Good ol 'pencil for scale' picture for a friend. He probably will take me another 6 hours or so to finish, but I had to quit to sleep for now. Taking time to look or comment means a lot to me, you guys are great. Thanks! Hope I can finish him tomorrow! Why do 2 pictures keep randomly loading below this point? I keep deleting but they just come back. Halp! (Duplicate pics removed by OneBoot :) )
  3. Eldest digit is turning 10 in two weeks. There will be a pathfinder party and I get to be the dungeon master. I also get to prepare minis for the party. While most will make characters a couple days before (end of next week), Indy the eldest wanted to make one this weekend. Went with a female half-Orc ranger wielding a double axe. Sounds fun, right? Well, I don't seem to have a lot of double axe wielding minis. Actually have a prepainted one, but it is an Orc and he's definitely male, so that was out. I figure I can convert an appropriate figure that's wielding a pole arm without too much trouble. But it would have to have the right positioning for the weapon. Came across Vernicia and Indy says, that's her. It turns out I have this figure from years ago. Pulled it out of the box of shame, primed black. Here it looks after dusting it off pre cutting. cut the standby end off and made a point out of what was left of the shaft. Also found a couple of prepainted orkz to remove axe heads from. They are big and ridiculous so they'll be perfect! drilled out the shaft end of the plastic axe heads a little to give them a chance to hold onto the sharpened shaft and applied super glue. Also glued to a base at this point. Then hit the whole thing with a heavy drybrush of white primer. And did a quick paint all in one night. Left it on the table and we will see what the reaction is in the morning. I think she turned out pretty good. What do you think?
  4. Introducing the newest demon lord in my miniatures collection... The Minotaur Demon Lord, aka Baphomet, aka "the Horned King", aka "the Prince of Beasts." This miniature was quite a bit bigger than the metal demon lord minis I've painted previously. A bit of a challenge, but I'm pleased with the result! If anyone is interested in the play-by-play of me painting this miniature, feel free to check out the work in progress thread on the forum. Cheers! -E.E.
  5. This is my the first miniature I've painted in over 10 years. (Edit: Dang, actually about 20 years. It feels crazy to say that!) Those who followed the WIP know that it took a while - free time is hard to come by these days, but that should hopefully be smoothing out soon. I've learned that I have a lot to learn, but I'm very happy with the way he came out. Critiques welcome! There will be a few new WIPs going up soon.
  6. Presenting Belisarius Cawl, a millenniums-old, cyborg super-scientist. He's part of Games Workshops Triumvirate of the Imperium figure set, and I've been doing a WIP thread for him here. Now I've got him all assembled he is a little too busy detail-wise (he could certainly do with losing at least one set of arms), but he was a lot of fun to paint up and put together and that's the important thing. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  7. So, this Minotaur fellow has been staring at me in pieces for a while now. I've decided the time has come to get painting, and while I'm at it, make my first ever WIP post. Because in the words of the great Devo: "When a demon miniature comes along, you must WIP it!" End goal: mini to be used in my D&D campaign. He doesn't need to be display quality, but I'll still welcome your tips and suggestions to improve my work. So far I've just put down some brown liner and temporarily stuck it together to make sure everything is on track. Currently mixing up colours for the base coat... More soon! -E.E.
  8. It is said that Sister Hilda's sermons were more blistering than any flame strike, and that her withering scowl could flatten a troll.
  9. So while I was stuck on another mini, I was putting together some of my other minis. Unfortunately I'd gotten quite far into assembling this particular one, before I realized I wouldn't be able to pack him away afterwards due to his abundance of tiny, easily broken bits, so he's barged his way to the front of my painting queue. Eventually Cawl will look like this:- But currently he looks like this:- As he also happens to be pretty damn fiddly to paint. Honestly, I would have liked to have left him in even more sub-assemblies, but it would've started to get silly. On the plus side I already have a colour scheme sorted for my little group of GW Cyborgs (even though I still have most of them to paint):- Although Cawl is a bit more complicated than the rest (so much cabling!), and there's bound to be colours in there I no longer have (why did I have to use Ruddy Leather on everything?). Anyways, started on his lower half:- With a basecoat of Medium Olive and a Brownshade wash on the cloth areas. Sadly, the wash didn't do a particularly good job of settling in the folds, so I will need to repaint pretty much all of this.
  10. Here is my finished "spirit of the forest" diorama. Including a bones bird familiar and metal squirrel familiar from 02756. (The axe was from a Frostgrave plastic sprue - cultists or soldiers?) wip is here Pics Oops - meant to put his in show off. How do I fix it? Mod help?
  11. This was a speed paint I did in an attempt to paint faster and not overthink my miniatures. I had painted fhe base previously. Boris took and hour, my NMM attempt took 40 more minutes.
  12. Decided to start painting this awesome barbarian up as part of the Hobby Hangout Competition that's going on right now! Torgar the Barbarian Limited edition: 100 copies Concept: Roberto Cirillo Sculptor: Raul Garcia Latorre Material: Resin (Bigchild Creatives) Pieces: 10 Weight: 66gr Scale: 1:24 (75mm)
  13. Okay, following the finale of the Copper Dragon ... Soonâ„¢ ... I will start this guy. In between efforts on finishing Gauntfield and the Dragon, I've taken to cleaning the troll. I'll spray a new coat of primer on him shortly and base coat him. Stay tuned.
  14. This is another of my ReaperCon Painters entries. It is the Hunter from Kabuki Models and one that I decided to use to practice painting red. I originally was not going to do blood effects but since she is carrying heads in the bag, I thought to give it a go. I went a little crazy with the blood, it started with some on the heads and axe but then I thought she surely would have gotten some on her. Well it may be excessive but I kind of like it and it inspired the name "Reason for Red".
  15. One of the figures I completed over the new year's weekend. I was trying for better definition, don't think I quite got there. May try again with the metal version. Didn't care for the pedestal she came on so I used one of the many bases from my bag of crap.
  16. Giant Mountain Troll The Old Troll and the Boar I cleaned, repaired and repainted a long time baddy from our gaming sessions, Reaper's Giant Mountain Troll. He had fallen to the floor a few times over the years and had a gloss coat instead of a matte coat for a sealer. So he was quite due for the treatment. Given his look and feel, I decided to paint him as an older troll. His skin is duller. His hair receding considerably. He hasn't fought anyone in a long time. Even the boar for his dinner wasn't much of a hunt. So he's kept his clothing in relatively good repair and found and made some better furs to wear. He still prefers his old stone axe. He was happy to find some stone laced with mithral to make a new axe head for it though. You can check out the WIP post to see everything I did to get him here. WIP The ol'boy will return to the carry case to stand before those pesky fellas from yonder cities and protect his mountain or wherever he gets plopped down. Enjoy. Check him out in the Inspiration Gallery. (Approved) Added to Thrym's Index of Reaper Miniatures & Thrym's General Show Off List
  17. 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.
  18. This might be my favorite Reaper Orc. Look at those jowls!
  19. Vilhanna the Victorious from Red Box Games (currently available through Hasslefree Miniatures as Hanna of Vil). A quickie to improve my 2016 painted stats :) And appreantly I'm still not confident enough to try some free hand on a shield.
  20. Another awesome sculpt from Hasslefree Miniatures. I'm quite happy with the skin tone of this one.
  21. 60182: Hakon, Iconic Skald Sculpted by Bobby Jackson This is another commission piece for me. The character in the Patherfinder game we are play is a Ranger who throws axes. He liked this figure so much he bought it on the spot! Said he wanted it to have a kind of coloration at Boba Fett. So I'm working from that, kind of. Edit: I sculpted the base my self. It's just a simple brick pattern.
  22. 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 :)
  23. 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: This is Viggoth the Remorseless, from Red Box Games. He's abit smaller than I would like to but still a great sculpt. Somehow I messed up the varnishing and I just can't for the life of me get some of the glossy spots matt, no matter how much I spray them will dull coat (I've only sprayed him once or twice, I don't want to ruin the whole figure).
  24. Classic bucket head warrior. This guy was fun to paint.
  25. I painted this fierce looking dwarf over the last couple of afternoons. I didn't do anything with the base as I like my pre-slotta vintage minis to remain "au natural". He is an oldie from the mists of time by Citadel Miniatures under their "Chronicle Miniatures" range. Thanks for looking!
