  1. From an old Grenadier box set, a green slime in the process of consuming a man in chainmail.
  2. A cursory search found nothing...but: has anyone tried painting a mini with green hair? Like a more subtle "natural" tone rather than blazing neon or something? The reason is 'currently' a surprise but if anyone has tips/tricks that'd be great!
  3. I am getting ready to tackle Cinder, as the name suggests should I go with red, or go with green due to the fact it resembles blghtfang who is a green? ahh help I am undecided.
  4. A model I am very proud of... My first full size Dragon! The lovely Cinder is dressed today as a green dragon with identity issues -- she thinks she is the reincarnation of a legendary black dragon. Hence, large parts of her are a deep green-black rather than the more traditional colors. Hopefully my players will be as confused about her true colors as she is. 😈 Without further ado, here she is being unceremoniously grappled by Mr. AutmnHare Her majestic backside: Modeling Head Shot: (Is my left side or right side my better side??) And her lovely underwing (how risqué, Ms Cinder!) So this took me most of April since I had to paint each of her scales 4 times, then those huge wings, then all those spines all the way down her back. BUT, I proved to myself that I do have the patience to paint a mini this big without resorting to "just dry brush it."*. She still needs a base, and soon, but I am no where close to done with it. I will need to pin either her ankles or tail (preferably) so she doesn't droop, but I haven't been able to sculpt satisfactory books to stack around her base, and serve as a pinning location. (She's a scholarly dragon, you see...) Autumn * I resorted to this method about 1/16 th of the way through Kaladrax, about the time I went to put on the second coat of paint on all those vertebrae. Fortunately, as an undead dragon, Kally looks pretty good with mostly dry brushing. I want to do better for my living dragons.
  5. Hi guys, I haven't posted anything for a couple of months, but I did paint some stuff. Now it's time to share. First up is my take on the green dragon Blightfang. I used him as Chuth in the D&D Tyranny of Dragons storyline. This is why he sports the typicial colors of a green D&D dragon. The elf wizard with him was used as the green wyrmspeaker, wearing the purple robes of the Cult of the Dragon. I really enjoyed painting Blightfang, although I have to admit that the base took longer than the dragon itself. I used a one dollar metal plate from the local hardware store as a 4 inch base, so its nice and heavy. Please click on the images for a more detailed 1000px version. C&C welcome!
  6. The Little People January Bones Beauty Pageant inspired me to try to paint some of my halflings and gnomes. This one, 77167: Ingrid, Female Gnome, is now done. I tried to do some OSL to make it look like the stone was really glowing, including between her fingers. I painted the base with lights and shadows. I didn't add anything to her except paint.
  7. Another of the fellows who didn't fit in a group, the Great Green Bastich and Wrecker of Ships, Vyraxxus the Senile (also known as Deathsleet when he's, you know, feeling less green):
  8. Finished my Adventure Sophie a while ago, but finally got around to taking some pictures. WIP: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62385-reapercon-2011-adventure-sophie/
  9. My first miniature done with airbrush, so it's more testing than anything else. Hope you will enjoy it. I still have to finish the base a bit, with some fallen leaves. And because of the tree nudity, I'm posting only the link. Any C&C's are more than welcome. http://pipek.drd.sweb.cz/dryada.jpg Pampala
  10. My last topic on this forum was a Brandle Birchstaff and I liked him so much that I decided to paint another!
  11. Please excuse the bent halberd. It was a little off when I took the pics and of course I didn't notice at the time.
  12. This is the first of two little predatory underwater plant-creatures sculpted by Patrick Keith. I had originally planned to paint them like kelp, but I think they turned out more like bok choy. Such is life in the vegetable kingdom. Their faces are really that featureless, with nothing but eerie eyespots. This one is 92691, which has a single skull on its base. WIP thread here. Second Kelpie photos to follow shortly.
  13. I just finished painting and basing my first true dragon miniature, Blightfang. I painted him over the weekend and did most of the base then too, but added a couple of touches to the base tonight so I could post him. I am happy with how he turned out, though I think I could still do more with the base, now that I see the photos.
  14. So I'm working on a miniature for a a player in my game. She's a Half-Orc barbarian. I couldn't find one I really liked, and since I had just gotten my Norsgard KS rewards I decided to paint up the Mistress of the Hunt, since her face was covered and she had a greataxe like the player is using. I wanted to make the skin greenish, enough to look not human, but not comically green. I figured I would start with Clear Viridian along with a bit Ruddy leather for the base. I hoped the strong base would shine through and tint it. There are a lot of thin little strips of flesh between the leather straps, so I basically painted everything with the green base: Then I used Alien Flesh and Bathalian Chitin mixed with Viridian for the layers. I do like how the skin turned out, even though the colour is a little too close to the head: So the original plan was to paint the straps a darker reddish brown, but they actually look interesting green. I'm really torn over sticking to the original plan or finishing them green. The cloak is going to wind up white, the boots a darker brown, and the black on the leg will be metal. Any suggestions?
  15. Hi !!! A little mini from Hasslefree paint for a friend this night (i'm insomniac :( ...) Sorry for the bad pictures :
  16. This guy was a good time. I didn't go for anything special or challenging besides trying out a classic green skin, which I rarely use. I like how it turned out, my hobgoblins from Bones 3 might end up green.
  17. Painted up 77006: Great Worm after NomadZeke requested a nontraditional monster for the 2015 Summer exchange. (It's really fun, you should join) Been trying to work on more range in my shadows and highlights so I tried out the technique from How to Blend by olliekickflip. Still need a lot of practice but I call it a success. All of the shading was done only by starting with a white base and building up the paint.
  18. I'm working on a bunch of Bones and Bones II figures with an aquatic theme. Among them are these three frog creatures, two warriors and a shaman or druid who is itself wearing a frog skull as a helmet. Pretty neat, actually. Anyhow, here they are primed with Reaper's Brown Liner (Buglips' great discovery). They are pretty sizable, so I decided to paint them as leopard frogs rather than poison dart tree frogs. Leopard frogs were the frogs where I grew up, and I have a fondness for them. A screen grab of reference pix: To begin with, I mixed a bright poison green and painted their heads, backs, and limbs with it -- basically everything that isn't going to be the soft white underbelly.
  19. With my wharf packed away securely to avoid any harm during the hectic moving period...I grabbed an hour here and there and built/constructed this little fellow that I call " Herby "! It/he will be the last piece to go on a fantasy vignette/diorama that I have been working on for another site. The piece contains these separate pieces/parts (head, stalk, snake vine, 3 large leaves/top, 3 large leaves/bottom, crawling ivy, moss clump/top)...selected from my varied basic parts boxes and put together for some nice visual looks/impact. Any feedback and comments will be greatly appreciated as usual. Paul (Catdancer)
  20. I thought he would be one of the easier dragons to paint. I was wrong. Bones 2 dragons make Bones 1 dragons look like kittens.
  21. This is the last of the five dragons I have painted this spring. I was trying experiments and some worked out and some didn't. Anyhow, this is Sandra Garrity's "Ebonwrath" in Bones painted up as a green dragon. There's something wonky with her left wing. It looks like it was clamped too hard during the manufacturing process and got a bit bent. Boiling and reshaping proved futile. So I think of it as her left pinky wing bone got broken at some point and did not heal properly. WIP thread here. (You can see the "broken" wing bone best in this picture):
  22. I thought this elf would turn out red, but he wanted green so...
  23. After spending quite a bit of time on my friends sons chaos terminator last week I switched back to the old ral partha goblins. Nice and quick to paint this is 3 of 5 ( no he is not a Borglin). C&c wanted and thanks in advance.
  24. Well, here's the big Dracolich from Reaper. His base is a CD- I sculpted some rocks to match the rocks that the mini was already standing on. I'm really quite fond of this mini- dragons and zombies go together quite well,a nd his rotting flesh was a real joy to paint. You might not be able to tell from the photos, but the red areas are glossy, making him seem more fresh. Also, I posted him to CMON for anyone who cares to vote.
