  1. So I recently posted Rozmina, the Half-Orc Pirate from Derek Schubert. Here is the other half-orc I was working on at the same time, but as this one had a lot more going on with armor and such, he took quite a while longer. Really cool mini sculpted by Bob Olley around 2003, large figure, good heft to him. the only frustrating part on this one was the chainmail and trying to get all the paint into all those little holes, and I can see some spots where it didn't work quite like I wanted it to. Also what color would you guys call his metals that aren't "steel" colored? Referring to the hilt, the belt buckle, and that heart looking thing protecting his manly parts?
  2. 03229 Elise Anya, Vampire Hunter

    Another quick 2 hour job for some tabletop gaming.
  3. Freja Fangbreaker #77073

    One of the quick commissions I picked up at Con of the North 2 weeks ago. Only 2 hours on her, so nothing super special. Though it is the 2nd time I've painted her.
  4. Hello all, Starting a new WIP for a mini I'm working on for one of the players in my D&D 5e campaign. One of her characters is a Tiefling Eldritch Knight, so I have selected the glaive-weilding S'Kara to be the starting point for this project... As you can see, I have just begun. I have primed the mini, and used a pair of pliers to slightly curve her horns, to achieve a more ram-like, less devil-like look. I'm currently in the process of selecting colours for the cloth portion of her outfit. Any suggestions or ideas? (Fyi, she will have dark brown hair and olive skin). As always, comments and constructive feedback are always welcome! -E.E.
  5. Hi all and happy new year! Here are two figures I recently finished that Ral Partha has re-released, a ranger and a female fighter. The ranger was sculpted by Jim Johnson and the fighter was Bob Olley. Fun figures to paint, kind of bulky and a larger scale than the old Partha stuff I'm usually working on. and just for fun, I took a close up of the lady's face, because it always seems to happen that when a character has something raised over his head, the detail becomes smaller because your picture is so much higher: Anyhow, really enjoyed painting these figures, loads of fun, full of personality and a good hefty size. And they're metal, which is another plus for me!
  6. It's been a while since I've posted anything here. I have some making up to do. Forgive me. Dub Bullock. A most unpleasant painting experience. Mine was badly cast so I had to fix up a few spots. This is not something I'm good at. Greenstuff is my enemy. Thorvald, Dwarf Hero was an experiment in blue armour. I'm not sure if I'll do that again. Baeldrinahr, Rogue Fighter. I've painted this one before with a similar scheme.
  7. An old Ral Partha lady warrior I painted for the Morihalda Challenge. I'm happy with her eyes (only two tries!), but she seems kinda washed out in the pictures. I need to play with the light box more.
  8. So here is another one in my little series of old and new. I was actually going to post this yesterday as well, but I didn't have a good front shot. So this is a Grenadier Elf or Half Elf fighter, from their twenty-piece woodlands adventure box. I painted this figure way back in the eighties to be one of my player characters Renny back in the day when we played D&D at Star Realm in Omaha. Back then there was a buy named Bill if I remember correctly from Offutt who was our DM, another guy, I think Roy, and then another random assortment of teenagers. and a shot from behind, where you'll see there's lots of grass stuck to the base. I think I just didn't wait long enough for his sealant on the base to dry before I stuck him into the grass. I always paint the base black again and then seal, because I will have ultimately made a mess all over the base while painting it. Not too worried though, these are being painted just for fun. and here's the front shot I was missing yesterday, where you can see a bit of difference in the shield and face: and then just some shots of them in the same photo: So there you have them, a small journey into my adolescent past, up to my current almost 50 year old self, who as per my beautiful wife, is still probably somehow stuck back in the past with my fascination for "muñequitos". Like I mentioned in my previous posts I've got a few more of these yet to be started, that I'll probably do when I'm "between projects". Anyhoos, enjoy!
  9. Another Ral Partha lady fighter lady

    Another old-school Ral Partha fighting woman who is sensibly dressed. I finished her up last night. let me know what you think, please.
  10. Ral Partha Male Fighter

    This is the other figure that comes in the blister pack with the female fighter I posted a while back: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/76723-ral-partha-female-fighter/&tab=comments#comment-1615258 I finished him and he's ready to join his lady friend on the battlefield. Table top paint job.
  11. 02607: Bjorn, Dwarven Warrior

    Started doing NMM again after almost half a year painting my Skaven AoS army. What do you all think? Thanks in advance for any advice or criticisms.
  12. Ral Partha Female Fighter

    This is an old Ral Partha female fighter; she is part of a 2 figure set with a male figure dressed and armed in the same fashion. (He is still on the workbench awaiting a few finishing touches) I hope you like her.
  13. SG's Summer and Fall WIP

    Well, I finally got to a point on these where it would be worth it to post. These are my major projects that I will be working on for the next few months and all four are planned ReaperCon entries. Right now there is not much to see as they are just at the primer stage but the bases are built and also ready for paint. So from left to right we have the Dark Elf Assassin from Scale 75, Tarko from Scale 75's Fallen Frontiers line, Dark Sword's Wood Elf Warrior, and Reaper's own Crimson Herald. Please excuse the blurry pics, I am cleaning my apartment and this was the best place to take pics.
  14. Hero Forge - Dwarf Fighter

    Here is a hero forge dwarf fighter I've been working on painting the last few days. A friend in my D&D group convinced me to make one of these (before I found Reaper and other mini companies). The detail is pretty good, but the price point was pretty high. I went with the brass and if I had to do it over I would probably choose the high quality plastic. I also didn't think about having paint all the nooks and crannies when designing this guy. Let me know what you think so far. C&C is always welcome.
  15. A few recent painted models. I'm in love with the new Eli Quicknight and Tara the Silent. Both are superb sculpts and both will grace my paint table many many more times in the future. In fact I'm playing a Rogue in a Pathfinder with some new friends. I think the Eli mini will represent him quite well,,,
  16. I do declare her pretty much done. She's done unless I have a midnight burst of "oh my gosh I must fix that thing". Not 100% happy with the chain, but I got it looking formidable so that's good. Not 100% happy with the hair. Highlighting just looked too cheesy, so I kept tweaking it overly. Mostly happy with her face; I got the character of it down well, but refinement is an ongoing struggle. Very happy with her red shoulder pad and trim. Fairly happy with the shading on the metals, but I could still improve. Other annoying thing: I literally cannot get enough decent lights to get good photography where I live. This is better than me taking pictures with a bunch of paint bottles around, but not like what I used to be able to set up at my old apartment. This house has atrocious lighting to begin, the lamps bulbs are too yellow, and when I do put in a nice bulb, the darn lamp has too short of a cord to reach any area that could be used for photography. The best I might be able to do is surround the area between the kitchen and the table with lamps, on the floor. And that would be in the way of my roommates and kinda gross. So I used daylight, despite the big ol' shadow, and my wimpy otlite (not bright enough alone). Enough kvetching, onward to pictures! Rip her to shreds! If you know of a way that I could get better pics without spending a ton on lamps, that would be awesome!
  17. Just wanted to post some pictures of a few figures I finished up recently in an effort to clear off some of the stuff that's been gathering dust on my paint table, so they'd be ready for the game table. I'm not 100% sure of the identity of each of these figures other than manufacturer. The first is an old Heartbeaker Hobbies and Games sword-woman. The second is a pirate from Eureka The third was some sort of witch or sorceress (I can't exactly remember), from the Deadlands game.
  18. Hosilla, Reaper Miniatures

    Hosilla from Reaper's Pathfinder miniature line. Or the curious case of the miniature that looks better in the pictures than in real life! I painted this some while ago (last august) to be a stand in for Talis, a villain in the Horde of the Dragon Queen DnD adventure. I was rather pleased with the result except for how the face turned out. I think it looks similar to those "doll faces" that you see on the Wizkid produced prepainted DnD and Pathfinder miniatures. Strangly enough that doesn't show up in the photo. So this is the first miniature I've painted where the photo is better than the actual result :D
  19. Grenadier fighting man

    This is an old grenadier figure from the 'Fantasy Warriors' range/game. I'm not entirely certain what he's called; he's not in Mirilton's catalogue, so I guess his mold didn't survive. At any rate, I found him again recently and decided to give him some paint. Tabletop work as usual; I hope you like him.
  20. Ral Partha Female Fighter - Queen

    So another old Partha piece that I just finished. I don't think the photos are the greatest and there is such lack of mercy when you see your piece so close up but here we go: I think she came out reasonably well. She had a huge shield that I just didn't want to leave blank, so I did a bit of freehand, but I'm wondering sometimes my artistic talents when I do these, as this little Pegasus reminds me more of a little rag doll horsey than a noble beast of flight. It's just really hard to get too much detail in such a small area which is about the size of a dime. This one was originally a set of four females, originally called Queens from different cultures by Dennis Mize, really nice set. Enjoy!
  21. 77008 Reaper Bones Garrick The Bold

    Hi All, I thought I'd give this popular little guy a quick lick of paint. Comments are always welcome, Thanks for looking!
  22. 77055: Anval Thricedamned

    ok I had been wanting this mini for a while, when it finally arrived I was a little surprised how small it looked with out paint. I worried that it wouldn't look menacing standing next to a large fighter, I was wrong. with paint the dimensions seem to change. comments and critiques welcomed. I think I will call his axe Moon scream.
  23. This is a quick tabletop commission piece I did for one of my friends who I play D&D with. His Dwarf Wizard likes to mix things up with his axe as well as spells. He also has an earth elemental that he summons as a familiar, which is what I attempted to recreate on the base with cork and bark. The figure is Dwarf Heavy Fighter from Hammer & Forge Miniatures. C&C welcomed and appreciated, thanks for looking! Edit to add another angle of the elemental familiar.
  24. Doing a quick tabletop commission piece for one of my D&D buddies again. This character is a fighter who decided to go into wizardry and still likes to get in the grill of his enemies to unleash axe and spells. Need to finish this guy up this week since next Saturday is D&D game day.
  25. valeros iconic fighter. 89007

    painted this mini with the object of really concentrating on the face. normally they get some paint a shade and I am done. went into a little more detail on this one. c and c welcomed. you may have to enlarge the pics to see the teeth and pupils. the last pic in the series came from my phone, I may scrap my camera and just use the phone from now on.
