    WOC88361, Ogre Trooper

    Wizards of the Coast, Chainmail Miniatures Drazen’s Horde faction 88361, Ogre Trooper. This 42mm tall pewter model was sculpted by Mike McVey and I painted it with acrylics and inks.
  2. Chaoswolf

    Chain Mail wizard

    This is an old wizard figure from the ChainMail game. I'm including him as part of my Morihalda Challenge; he was already painted, but I did some touch ups, and based him. I was having a bad day, but didn't want to break my streak, so I needed something quick and easy. Still trying to get the hang of playing with my wife's light box; he's a little washed out.

    Orc Stalker

    Here's an effort I made at painting this orc. I've only been painting three weeks so I am open to help/comments. I added some Welsh slate to the base. Took some inspiration from an artist called slashhamster. Thanks
  4. So somehow I've gotten roped into this Hangout of the Month piece, possibly because I may have been the first one to mention that I have this figure and it just snowballed from there. Thanks to knarthex for getting all of this started. This is the first metal figure that I'll have ever done, so we'll see how it goes. Here he is in all of his shininess. This thing has a heck of a lot of fiddly bits to it, he's going to be a challenge. But on to getting it prepped: .....And this happened. I had tried using Duplicolor Sandable Primer on it, but it couldn't quite get into the crevices (and there's a lot of them). So it got an overnight bath in Simple Green, and when I woke up, it was all rusted. I'm not sure what happened, there must have been a chemical reaction that corroded it. .........Ha ha, I jest. Since I has a sample of Stynylrez Primer from my Reapercon bag, I decided to test it out to see how it was, and it just happens to be red. I found that it covered things quite nice, it's definitely something I'll use again once I find some that's a more neutral colour. I took a page from Buglips' book ( I know, you're thinking that goblins aren't literate. But they use the pages for toilet paper. And that's only when they want to feel fancy) and made a wash from Warpaints Black. The ratio was 1 part Warpaints Black/6 parts water/1 part flow improver/2 parts stank. It brought up even more little details on the figure that I hadn't even noticed before, there's a lot of cool things about this one, even if painting them will kills me. I realize that I don't even have a real plan to paint this thing, so I'm just winging it and researching various methods of accomplishing what I have in mind. I haven't had much time to do much painting right now, hopefully after tomorrow I'll be freed up a bit more.
  5. My February Hangout Figure of the Month ended up taking a little longer than I had expected... Fiddly mini... He still needs a blast of clear coat, but otherwise? I'm calling him done! Except for that spot of touch up on the skull.. and maybe that ring finger... WiP here Lots more pics below the cut.
  6. EldritchEladrin

    77012: Gnoll Warrior (x4)

    Here are some gnasty gnolls for your enjoyment! Tried to do some work on groups with an army/matching uniform look... ... And some highlighting on raised areas (the gnoll's left knee). The lighting isn't super great in these pictures (sorry!) but I promise you all they DO have spooky red eyes, as per the usual evil hunters. Next post will likely be a return some bigger minis (I just can't quit my demon lords!). Until then, take care of yourselves! -E.E.
  7. I picked up my Orc Druid from e-bay, and he arrived already sort of painted. So into the paint stripper he went, and on the other side came out looking much better! And then tonight he got painted with brush on primer. For the most part he's a well sculpted mini, though there is a mold line running across the skull on the staff, and then down the staff and across his right hand. The other big on is on the underside of his left arm. The worst bit to get is between the straps on the back of the staff Talking tonight with the Knarthex, Dilvish, and CW about skin tones, I think I'm gonna try to match the blue I used for the Black Orcs from Bones 1.
  8. So, a bunch of us have decided that we're going to work on the same figure every month on the Google Hangouts. The first one (that spawned the idea) is the old Chainmail Orc Druid. In the future, most of the figures chosen will probably be Reaper. I used part of my day off yesterday to find, and get caught up with, everyone else that's doing this. I decided to go with the stereotypical orcs=green paint scheme. I had 2 excellent reasons for this: 1) The green paint already happened to be out and open, 2) There's this skirmish game called 'Mordheim' where you control a warband that's looting a ruined city. In this game, there is the option to play an orc and goblin warband. I already have half of a warband painted; this guy will be joining the gang once he's done. Of course, I'll use him for other stuff, too. This is what I got done yesterday: reprimed, and basecoat for the skin and teeth.
  9. So, For those of you not in the Know, some of the Google Hangout regulars decided that it would be a fun thing to pic the same mini, and all paint it over the course of the month... The idea was that we could bounce ideas off each other, as opinions, and discuss things about the mini, all in real time... We all thought that this guy, that Pezler mentioned, and that Dilvish, Chaoswolf and I knew we could get at a store on paint day, would be a fun simple, easy thing to do in between other serious projects.... He certainly ended up proving us wrong about that! But, he also showed us 'proof of concept' in that doing this kind of thing is very helpful, as we found so many things that made him a more complex sculpt than first appears... So here is mine, Finished last night.... WiP Here I noticed whilst taking the pics that I didn't re-trim the black edge of the base after adding in the Secret Weapon snow.... That will be fixed after posting this.... Thanks for looking! Next months Hangout mini of the month is Reaper's Goblin Shaman, Metal 02876, Bones 77349
  10. So considering the fact that I am the Instigator of this, it is only fitting that I post my work tonight.... (I almost forgot! Good thing the guys on the hangouts reminded me!) So he had the the mold line removed that runs up from his left foot, up his body and arm, across the wolf pelt's nosw, and the staff's skull, down the staff and his right hand fingers, and down the staff and it's accoutrements... Also on the inside of the wolf skin between his legs... The tab was cut off, and after drilling holes, pins were inserted in his legs. He was then primed with P3 White Primer from a rattle can with 3 light coats... and this is where he stands.... Not quite sure what I am going to do with him yet, I thought about doing the wolf skin in Technicolor, but I have already done that twice... I think that I am going to use the old Polly S Armor Dark Green for the mid tone on his skin though.... Maybe a Winter Wolf for the fur????? Hair will likely be the MSP Red Hair Triad.... And the item strapped to his back looks like a long twisted horn with feathers on it, Maybe a Rod / Staff / Wand / Fetish???? Thanks for looking! George Darn it! The mold line is still there on the skull on top of the staff!!!!!
  11. So last Paint day at the Citadel in Groton CT, I picked up the OOP Chainmail Mini Orc Druid, because folks on the hangouts were talking about him... 88713 Orc Druid So I spoke to Dilvish, Chaoswolf, & Pezler, (and David Brawley), and most of us have him, (David has an Orc Champion) and we decided to have a Hangout Group Paint of this guy, for the Month of February. Now Dilvish still needs to get one, and the Citadel still has a few extra.... So if you have this figure, or a Chainmail or other Orc Spell Caster, Join in and paint with us! This is not a contest, or any type of pressure event, it is just something for a bunch of folks to do and talk about while we are hanging out.... So Join in if you like... Watch if you like! George Current Hangout link: https://hangouts.goo...3ogteaq4nokgdae Edit: I plan on doing my own WiP Thread, and using my placeholder below to put 1 pic of the latest sessions work..... Edit #2 Should we pick one night a week for working specifically on this mini on the hangouts? If so, what night is best? (Obviously, this isn't any kind of mandatory thing, It would just be set up for everyone to be able to show off their work, as well as asking each other's opinions about things, as well as the "Does anyone know what that doohickey on his belt is????" type questions....) Edit #3 For those of you who don't have, or want to get the Chainmail figure, Reaper makes this guy: 02980: Quosk Ravensire, Half-Orc Druid ($4.99) James van Schaik
  12. Chaoswolf

    ChainMail Dwarf Berserker

    This is an old ChainMail Berserker that I got out of the melt bin at Reapercon. His weapon was broken, so I replaced it with a GW axe from my bits box. I almost painted him up with orange hair like a GW trollslayer, but I've actually got a few of those figures around, so I figured I'd save that paint scheme for them. I gave him a bunch of tribal style tattoos and followed the advice I got on my last tattoos and tried to blend them into the skin a little more. I think it looks better. Now, I just need to actually develop some artistic ability and my tattoos might actually start to look good.
  13. Silvervane

    Old, Mid, New Elves.

    So, since I was procrastinating on making my base for Rasia I decided to start prepping some more figures to paint. After see 72Moonglum paint up some old partha's I decided to work on another of mine. Here is stage one of my 3 stage elf collection: I then decided why not finaly paint up one of my Chainmail Elves. Also why not add a newer one to round out the generations, Reaper's Amiryth Elmlighter.

    Dark Paints: D&D Ogre Mercenary

    Dark Paints: D&D Ogre Mercenary Evil Ogres, this guy is BIG. I based him on a 40mm base initially (he's still standing on it!), but I found it to be waaaaay too small. I then put him on a 50mm base, and tried my Advanced Deployment arc marker tool, and I'm very happy with him. He's painted to Tabletop quality, and he'll be used as an Ogre Leader for Pathfinder, Song of Blades and Heroes monster, and possibly in Dragon Rampant as well. The shield was a take on the Thalos "water" shield and I'm happy with how it turned out. I don't believe he'll be working for Thalos anytime soon. C&C always welcome.
  15. This month I am at the Mountains of Minis, delving them with gusto, having done mould-line carving, scrubbing, boiling, assembling etc a large portion of the roughly 20-ish minis I got in the Bones 2 shipment. And sacrificing the required amounts of fingerblood, of course. At any rate, what few minis I actually get around to painting this month will all go into the resolutionary challenge total. The complete list will be in the challenge thread post. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. Seeing as I am momentarily sick of the bendy bones, I have painted some metal minis for a change. Hereby I present a new series entitled At the Mountains of Minis: The Unspeakable Mouth Which showcases minis with slightly overstated eating orifices (well, what did you think it would be about?) Volume 1: Abyssal Maw: From “Chainmail†the year 2002 Dungeons and Dragons metal miniature line by Wizards of the Coast (when they tried to emulate Games Workshop in size and somewhat in style of the minis). Chainmail had a few nice minis and several bad ones. The game was not a resounding success, and was replaced the following year by the “Dungeons and Dragons Miniatures Gameâ€, with prepainted plastic minis in random booster packs. Metal, 30mm base.

    77042: Orc Marauder (2)

    For the last 3-4/4 for the Feb RP Challenge, 2x of the Orc Marauder as seen in the LTPK. Somethin' feels a little off in the finished product but I can't tack down just what yet Better pics will likely come when I get time to setup/use my lightbox.
  17. Adrift

    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.
  18. Dilvish the Deliverer

    Dilvish's Old Painted Minis

    Over in the Randomness Thread, I was lamenting the state of my painting desk and how it was killing any interest I had in painting. I finally bit the bullet and started organizing. Ub3r asked for before and after pics, and I obliged. While cleaning and stowing, I came across the case with some of my earliest minis and figured since I had the camera out already, I may as well snap some pics. I didn't bother to set up my dedicated photo area, but they seem to have come out ok enough. So without further adieu, I give you a pictorial timeline of my miniature painting. These two knights are some of the earliest example of my work. They are either Heartbreaker or Citadel and have seen plenty of action over the years. The swordless one on the left originally had a crescent moon crest on his helm that I promptly removed in what may have been my first conversion. These fine fellows are part of the Three Stage Fighters (from Grenadier? maybe Ral Partha I put them away and I'm too lazy to go check). They were painted around the same time as the knights (late 80's).
  19. 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.
  20. Hi everyone, I'm going to try the WIP thing to keep me motivated, and to help me improve on a few things. Most of these are mid-process, or very lightly started. I have a specific way I paint, and I really only photograph about once a week. So, without further adieu, here begins my wip. First up, we have The Bones Gnoll, about 2/3 of the way through how I paint, but there are several areas to improve upon. My intent is to give a more rusted look to the metallics, and to bring up the leather straps. In person, I'm happy with the upper fur, with the feet needing improvement (and the leg wraps and flail wraps). Eyes are going to be something fun. Next up we have Vanja, Fire Giant Princess, the metal version (the bones version will be more traditionally coal-black with red highlights). This is a very early stage wip of her for me. I'm starting with skin tones, bringing them up to Vallejo Pale Flesh. Next we have the Bones Darkrasp, Death Priest. I've started an attempt at OSL with him, and would very much like suggestions on this. I really like how the scythe is coming, but the robes leave a LOT to be desired. The cloak looks like a burlap/linen (which was my intent with all the drybrushing) and I'm happy with it overall, including the OSL effects on the hood. Finally, we have my 2-year-old's wip of the bones Unicorn
  21. I'm planning on painting Ulf Gormundr soon, and I want to get him as close as i can to the painted example on this website. So maybe someone can help me out with some of my questions. To be blunt: How did they do that blue chainmail? How did they do that NMM Gold? How did they get the blonde hair to look so real? On the subject of blonde hair, I have the reaper 3 tier Blonde paints. It works well, but it doesn't come out looking as good as Ulf's hair. While i'm on the subject of blonde hair, I'm also planning on painting Seoni, as she is on this site, and her blonde hair looks post worthy as well. Appreciate any help. Sorry so many questions.
  22. I thought this was a pretty nice way to get a decent chainmail bag. Love the idea of adding rubber rings to allow more flexibility. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/259903200/stretchy-chainmail-dice-bags

    My First Attempt at Layering

    Hello Gamers! I took all of the wonderful advice I received from you guys & gals from my previous post and tried to implement it into this Dwarven fighter. Please let me know what you think and how I can improve on my next mini. Thanks ahead of time. Take care.
  24. This is (Razet)...an adventure group deadly foe. Razet sold his soul to chaos and has the ability to vanish and teleport back to a location where he is brought back to life so he can continue his hunting & killing of all humans. The only way to kill him (so he stays dead) is to kill the necromancer he is employed by first. I don't rember the company that released this metal figure. He is a game playing piece.

    Abyssal Ravager

    This is an Abyssal Ravager from Wizards of the Coast. As in D&D description I've chosen the green color to give it a venomous aspect.
