  2. Hi everyone. In an attempt to put some non Bones 3 items on the forums, I present some Storm Troopers. It's been a while since I've posted my own pics. I've been working diligently for the last 15 months trying to finish the first set of Imperial Assault miniatures. I'd previously posted my Probe Droids and Imperial Officers. Below are my Storm Troopers. I did follow the Sorastro guides. If anyone doesn't know about those, it is a well produced set of You Tube videos worth checking out. These storm troopers almost killed the desire to do the whole project. I have been using almost exclusively Reaper paint, despite the tutorials using GW paint. This means I sprayed the troopers with white primer, then slathered on a bunch of Reaper Black Wash. It took 3-6 layers of paint to get them reasonably white. You can't tell too much in the pics, but there are areas which were left less white in shadowed areas like under the calf. By the time I was happy with them, I didn't want to add any battle damage or dirty feet, but I did it anyway in the spirit of following the tutorial. I think the gloss coat really makes these fit the full nostalgic effect. Let me know what you think.
  3. To continue my Imperial Assault posts, here is the figure I photographed that had the best light. I'll have to re-take pictures of everyone else. Fenn Signis is a sniper hero in the game. I did follow the Sorastro Guides, but with Reaper paints. The hardest part of this figure was trying to paint in purple sunglasses, when they are not part of the sculpt. Oh, that and BLACK! The pic is a little out of focus on that one, because the camera chose to put the tip of the gun in best focus there. I was happy with how the rebel insignia on his shoulder came out. Enjoy, and let me know what you think.
  4. Hoard of the Dragon Queen Part I of the Tyranny of Dragons Campaign A Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition Campaign by Wolfgang Baur and Steve Winter Published by Wizards of the Coast, and Kobold Press Copyright 2014 For the past several days, you have been traveling a road that winds lazily across the rolling grasslands of the Greenfields. You decided to push on in your travels to try to reach town before dusk. Sundown is approaching when you top a rise and see the town of Greenest just a few short miles away. But instead of the pleasant, welcoming town you expected, you see columns of black smoke rising from burning buildings, running figures that are little more than dots at this distance, and a dark winged shape wheeling low over the keep that rises above the center of the town. Greenest is being attacked by a dragon! Suddenly, a terrified human family consisting of a mother, father, and three young children erupt from the undergrowth onto the Greenway, about 20 feet in front of you. The man limps badly, carrying his youngest child, and trying to usher his other children away from danger. All five seem at least minimally wounded in some way. Their mother turns, and lowers the point of a broken spear back toward her pursuers, and readies her round shield. She looks determined to slow down her pursuers as much as possible to give her family a chance to survive. Just then, a group of eight kobolds stream out of the underbrush, fanning out to surround the woman. Either they don't see your group, or they think you are on their side, because they don't seem to pay you any mind. What do you want to do?
  5. Best wishes for a happy birthday! :bday:
  6. Hi everyone. This is my version of Danar. Sculpted by Dennis Mize. I originally modified this figure to match my character in Flamehawke's PBP. It was a desert ranger specializing in sword and spiked shield two-weapon style. I chopped off its arm and spliced on one of the goblin's arms from Bones 6 pack of goblins 77030 I wanted light colors which would do well in a desert. I was pleased with both the white and yellow. The region in Pathfinder he comes from has a flag which is white, yellow and red. So, I painted the Celtic knot red to break up the all white cloak, and put red under the shield. This was an attempt at TMM on the sword and shield, but I was very unhappy with it. I also am not quite happy with the sand color, but it was an experiment. It was my first use of Pumpkin orange! I think it looks less Arizona desert, and more Martian landscape! I was hoping to add to the base with a barrel cactus, steer skull, and scorpion, but put that on the back burner while I work on other projects. Enjoy.
  7. Here was my next batch of completed figures for Imperial Assault. I watched Sorastro's Tutorial on You Tube, and tried to follow his steps. However, it is all with Reaper paints. Also, when I went back and watched episode IV, the officer uniforms seemed a sort of gray-green to me, so that's what I went for. I made the rank bars different for each. The highest rank is the red-based "Elite" deployment card. He's the one with gloves on and gray hair. You can see the eyes are a little wonky! Sort of too big. The sculpts had very tiny eyes, shallow, and the detail was obscured a little from my primer. During the painting of all this Imperial Assault stuff, I just have to keep telling myself "Tabletop!" so I don't get too bogged down with trying to get closer and closer to perfect. The final pic is the middling officer. I gave him a 5 o'clock shadow. That's a first for me, and I think it came out OK. If interested, here are the colors: The boots have a little Liquitex High Gloss Varnish on them. Comments welcome. Enjoy.
  8. Happy birthday, Newbie! Hope you have a good 'un.
