    Thrakansor, Dragon of Fire

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dgsgames/thrakansor-dragon-of-fire?ref=discovery About This project creates a resin dragon model for use in the Freeblades Fantasy Miniatures Game in 32mm scale. This model will be sculpted by the amazingly talented Julie Guthrie. You can easily find examples of her work by searching online, particularly her work for Reaper Miniatures. We are extremely fortunate to be collaborating with her on this project. For more information about the Freeblades game, see our website at www.dgsgames.com Your pledge will take this new creature from concept art, to masterful sculpture and then into production to be delivered to our backers. Dragons are denizens of the hidden world of Karelon, an alternate reality separated from the World of Faelon by The Between. There are nine dragons, one for each of the nine energies: fire, water, air, earth, ice, illusion, celestial, void and an energy not yet revealed in our world. Thrakansor is the Dragon of Fire, and devastates Faelon in the opening stages of the BrightSword War. To get a sense of scale of the model, here is the concept art with a human silhouette for reference. That silhouette represents a human-sized Freeblades model 32mm in height. The model will come with a 120mm round resin base. Sometime after all rewards have been delivered, Thrakansor will enter the Freeblades game system with complete rules and be available for use in scenarios that feature a large beast such as Beast Hunt and The Lair. We intend to publish additional scenarios that specifically make use of this model. Interested backers can be part of the playtesting of this model's rules and scenarios. This is a very simple project. We are only making one thing - this beautiful dragon model. There will not be any stretch goals, so the incentive to get us over the funding level rests in your hands. Tell all your friends who might be interested that they can have a large resin dragon model sculpted by Julie Guthrie for the simple pledge of $60. We here at DGS Games would like to take this opportunity to thank our long time friend and Freeblades player Bryan Bledsoe for being the driving force behind this project. Bryan generated sufficient interest in this project for us to take a look at doing it far earlier than intended and it has led us to this point where we are collaborating with one of the world's most renown miniature sculptors to bring a very important new creature into our pantheon. A million thanks Bryan, we would not be here without you. One of the main reasons why this project was not originally on the plate for this year is that we already have a major kickstarter project planned for launch on 1 January 2019 in which we will create two entirely new factions for the Freeblades game. Please follow us and watch for more information coming soon. For our friends beyond the borders of the US: International Shipping Zones Please add the appropriate amount to your pledge for the area you live in. If you have any questions please let us know and we will get you an answer. Mexico/Canada - add $15 United Kingdom, Mainland Europe, Australia - add $22 Anywhere else - add $40

    77198, Barrow Rats

    All of a sudden, two bear-sized rodents covered in open sores and overripe pustules emerges from the debris piled up in the corner of the oubliette. They rush towards you their open maws showing six-inch incisors. Here are the 77198, Barrow Rats, Dark Heaven Bones sculpted by Julie Guthrie.

    77521, Gravewailer

    Here comes the boggy 77521, Gravewailer, Dark Heaven Bones sculpted by Julie Guthrie. This ghostly aberration is also known as a Gibbering Mouther or Babélien. I painted it with acrylics, ink and sealed it with gloss brush-on sealer.

  7. So as everybody knows, in 2017 I attended my first ReaperCon ever. There I got to meet many wonderful people in real life, and I have to say it was probably the finest group of human beings I've ever spent time with. We picked a table at random, and so wound up with some random people sharing our table as people came to the con. @pcktlnt was one of them, and even though everybody here already knows he's pretty great I want to tell you that face-to-face he's even better. Pcktlnt is a genuine top-tier human being, even among such a great crowd of people. Before ReaperCon, being aware of the melt table there, I declared it my intention to raid it and Save The Parthas from doom. Since I could not monitor the melt table the whole time (even though I tried), I put the word out. I didn't care who wound up with them, I wasn't trying to get them for myself, I just wanted to save them from being melted into oblivion. Save The Parthas! was the cry. Now, to be 100% frank, my actual objective was to save the precious and rare TSR-era Parthas above all else. But, since asking people to scan the table for minis made in this specific 8-year span with these specific features and check the bases seemed like rather a lot to ask, Save The Parthas was shorter, sweeter, and simpler. And Save The Parthas they did! At one point, I forget which day, pcktlnt came by the table and delivered an old 1982 Partha giant lady. At some point in the past she had been painted with green skin and yellow fur. While a touch older than what I usually collect, I graciously accepted the free mini and said I would paint it up. I have, and here she is: For the age, she's not a terrible mini. She turned out, in fact, to be a very early Julie Guthrie. This particular specimen, being from the 80s and made of soft lead, did have some wear and tear. So I worked with what I could, and I'm happy to add her to the shelf. But the story doesn't end there! When I looked her up to identify her, I discovered she was Version 1 of the female giant from All Things Dark And Dangerous. I was familiar with Version 2, but had never seen this one. So I found some scanes of Partha catalogs older than my physical copies (which only go back to 1993) and she appeared in 1983 (stamped 1982 on the base) and was replaced in 1985 by version 2. Which means, technically, she's actually MORE RARE than many of the TSR minis! I don't know who brought it, but if you're here I'd be interested to know how you came by this figure. She's been painted, probably a long time ago, and has seen some action. She's got some history, and it didn't end just yet. Sometime in the 80s somebody saw her in a blister and said: "that's nice, I'll buy that" and now she's here, probably in a different country. What happened in all that time? How many players did she smush? I have no way to know, but now she's mine and I've grown fond of her. I love her just as much as any other mini - whether Takhisis or Factol Rhys. So a special thank you to @pcktlnt for your tireless stalking of the melt table, and for giving me the chance to own a little piece of odd history and give a miniature a good home. As an aside, if anybody wants a good melt table story, ask @Dr.Bedlam about The Joker With One Foot. It's a legendary tale, told best by him. (I saw the Joker with my own eyes before he told me).
  8. Hello guys and gals, here's a new figure I just finished, a Ral Partha figure from the eighties, a female warrior, kind of a bit barbaric, with axe and shield. As Always, deciding just simple things like colors were kind of more time consuming than they should have been. I did her hair black because I'd seen the same model very nicely painted and done blonde and didn't want to copy. This was sculpted by the great Julie Guthrie, sculpting goddess. Also had no idea what color the shield should have been so eventually and randomly chose green! Anyhoos, enjoy!
  9. “Off to off the wizard” The figures are from Reaper Bones KS3, “Chronoscope Wild West Oz”. Since they all were armed, I see this as a sort of hit squad, hence the title. I based them on 30mm round display bases from Reaper, and I 3d Printed a 20mm round in a similar style for Toto. Since not only the Tin Man, but also the flying monkey are obvious metal robots, I think “Weird West Oz” or even “Steampunk Oz” would be a more fitting moniker. The miniatures are made in the slightly harder Bonesium, henceforth to be known as Better Bones™. Since the third Bones kickstarter, all Chronoscope Bones are coloured grey, The Flying Monkey, Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow are sculpted by Bob Ridolfi, with Dorothy and Toto by Julie Guthrie. Only the Scarecrow seems to be released in Bones as of yet.
  10. We all knew this day would come eventually. The day where OneBoot tosses the very few marbles she has left into the ocean and throws herself in after them. The blank 4th spot in my lovely Goblin Challenge signature badge has been glaring at me for several months now, and my personal circumstances have now aligned to allow me to attempt this, my final Challenge. For those of you unfamiliar with Goblin Painting Challenges, started by our very own @buglips*the*goblin, here is a link to his Kaladrax thread that started it all: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/51269-kaladrax-in-seven-days-buglips-is-crazy-wip/& The short version of the rules is that I will be painting up Dragons Don't Share - 2014 edition in 7 days, using no brushes larger than a size 0. Here's the long version of the rules: You are all invited to join me in my descent into further madness! But only if you bring chocolate and gummy worms. On a personal note, out of all 4 Goblin Challenges, this is actually the one I've been the most nervous about all along (yes, even more so than Ma'al Drakar). Those adventurers are likely to prove to be 5 lovely little time sinks for me, and I'll have to concentrate very hard not to get caught up in all those beautiful details on them! But who knows, maybe it'll end up being the terrain that eats all my time and sanity; we get to find out together! My general plan is as follows: The first couple of days will focus on brown linering and basecoating ALL THE THINGS, while also putting on faces and eyes while my hands are still fairly steady. I will work primarily on the adventurers the first few days, but will take 'breaks' to work on the terrain and the dragon in between to let my eyes and hands relax a bit from the tiny work. My aim is to finish the adventurers by the end of Day 4, or at least get them to "good enough" status; fun fiddly detail bits can be added after this point if I have time, but even without those the figures could be declared done. My final day will likely be focused on finishing up the terrain, and possibly the dragon's wings. Not sure about that yet, but that's what I anticipate.

    77352: Demi-Lich

    Managed to completely paint this happy little guy up in short order: Threw the base together last night to cure, but the actual painting time on this one was only a couple hours. I assumed that he’s meant to be floating on magical wisps of etherealness, but lack ethereal-colored paint. However, I have fire and lava colors, so I made it flames. C&C welcome, as always.

    77041: Harpy

    77041: Harpy by Julie Guthrie This one was on my shelf of shame for quite a while, until my daughter told me off for having it lying around. So I sculpted a shirt for her out of greenstuff which was a fun learning process. I needed her for my D&D game last week, so she got the speed paint finish. Her skin is the dusky flesh triad with some light grey added.
  13. This is it! I'm done painting the Bonesylvanians collection. That's twelve Bonesylvanians from 2014 and sixteen from 2015, all in pewter. I want to thank everyone who commented and give feedback along the way. It was a lot of fun moments and there is still a lot more to come. Here are the links to the individual 2015 Bonesylvanians; 01546, Tut the Pharaoh 01547, Cal the Skeleton 01555, Boris the Frankenstein 01556, Elsa the Bride of Frankenstein 01564, Max the Nosferatu 01565, Barb the Zombie Cheerleader 01566, Jacques the Fly 01567, Mary the Mermaid 01568, Lou the Chulhu 01569, Howie the Sea Monster 01570, Betty the Ghost Bride 01571, Jake the Jason Voorhees 01572, Maddie the Gorgon (Medusa) 01573, Mel the Bathalian (illithid) 01575, Olive the Vampire 01576, Gulp the Deep One And, here are some group pictures of the Bonesylvanians class of 2015...

    77134: Hajad the Pirate (LTPK part 3)

    The third and final mini from the Layer Up! LTPK, Julie Guthrie’s Hajad the Pirate: Not gonna try for any better images, because then you would see how badly I messed up the eyes... Mostly by the book, but I skipped the lining as my little brush was becoming temperamental. Of the three minis in this kit, this is the one I was most looking forward to, as it has the most exposed skin of the three (one of my problem areas). Think I oversold the abs a bit too much though. Based on issues with the previous minis, I elected to basecoat both weapon blades with Ebony Flesh before applying the metallic. The Filigree Silver included in the kit was too watery to play nice with bare Bonesium, and in any case it was difficult for me to see where the paint actually stuck. Plus, it makes lighter metallics pop. It was nice to see darker flesh tones included in this kit. The darkest (non-dark elf) skin tone I had available before was Tanned Skin, but my attempts to mix in darker paints always resulted in a weird shade of sadness. All in all, this kit was a good learning experience. The instructions were clear and easy to follow, and it was neat seeing the colors build up with each layer. The cartoons were cute too. I just hope that my technique improves moving forward. And that painting eyes gets easier.

    02140: Cleo the Weretigress (nsfw)

    Wanted to try something different, so here is another oldie, Cleo the Weretigress, done up as a tiger lady: Front Back Another view Could have gone a few ways with this mini. There are parts of the sculpt which are clearly feline (face, tail, extremities) but most of the rest seems intended to be human form. This presented a dilemma, as I was unsure painting tiger all over skin-sculpted areas would produce the proper effect. On the other hand, painting those areas in skin tones would preclude the inclusion of tiger stripes. And I really wanted to paint some freehand tiger stripes, y’all. So I split the difference. It’s hard to tell from my awful pics (best available lighting, unfortunately), but I used the red hair triad for fur, basecoating with Carrot Top Red, Auburn Shadow for shadows, and slowly highlighting by layering with increasing amounts of Highlight Orange up to 100% For skin, I used Scholar Flesh. However, this color always seemed far too pale for my liking, so I mixed in a bit of Carrot Top. The result was a surprisingly neat pinkish tone that I will definitely find use for again somewhere. Her hair is Ginger Cookie with various brown highlights and shades, and white patches of fur are mostly Dragon White over Rainy Grey. This was an experiment with quite a few things outside my comfort zone, so I must ask: does the mid-transformation effect work or no? Are my colors way off? I’m not really satisfied with the color scheme on her face, what would have made it more tiger-like (and anywhere else)? Comments and critiques would be much appreciated.

    03566: Valloa, Female Elf Thief

    Sometimes you have to force your way through the rough patches. Fortunately, I recently found Valloa here at my FLGS. Given that she’s been on my “want” list for a while and their selection of metal minis was sparse at best, I snapped one up to dispel the painting melancholy. Apologies in advance for the bad images, lighting didn’t want to comply, and the closest to true color I could get has bad shine from camera flash + sealer. Here she is: I didn’t originally have plans to paint this one as a drow. But, I wanted a chance to try out the dark elf skin triad and didn’t have any other available elf minis to mess around with. The paints are fantastic though, and will likely see use outside of skin in the future. This is the second mini I’ve done with a purple cloak. I think the shadows and highlights turned out better (and more varied) than the previous attempt. And working upon previous advice, used no less than seven shades of brown overall (not that you can tell). Please feel free to comment and critique! I need to improve on things next time.

    03660: Amrielle, Female Ranger

    03660: Amrielle, Female Ranger Julie Guthrie This one has been on the shelf of shame for a couple of years. I had some severe problems with textures which is why she ended up on my shelf of shame. First mistake was I didn't sand smooth the various flat surfaces before priming. Then I primed using spray on aerosol primer when the weather wasn't right, creating a very rough, beaded surface texture (check out the top of her bow). Then when I was painting her, I was using glazing medium to try to improve my blending. I didn't wait long enough between coats of paint. Consequently, the partially dry layers got peeled up and made into a mess (look closely at her cheeks). She is finished now, good enough for use as a minion in a tabletop game where no one will look at her too closely. I have included close-ups of the textures so you can see my mistakes. I also put in one close-up of an area I painted today. The difference it makes when you take your time and let the previous layer properly dry shows clearly. 34 projects left on my shelf of shame!

    77580: Ma'al Drakar (pic heavy)

    The visage of Tiamat looms over the ancient and ruined temple of her rival Bahamut! After 6 months and about 400 hours of work, she is complete! Wow, didn't think it would take me that long. And a few more detail pics.

    77255: Bronzeheart, Minotaur Hero

    Well, at least he didn't end up on my shelf of shame. Some days my eyes and hands just aren't up to the job. I also learned today that blending metallics is really hard. Much more practice is needed. I am pleased with the way the lighting effect worked out, though.

    Ral Partha Ki-Rin

    So finally finished this one from my two-week vacation. I meant to finish the female mage to in my WIP, but that's still essentially a WIP to be finished once I get the time. Tomorrow it's back to work, so might take longer than I thought, but that's the way it goes. Enjoy!
  25. In addition to my 2018 goals to paint better and work on new techniques, I've decided to also start a long term project. I have about half of the Grenadier Fantasy Personalities line (series I and II) by Julie Guthrie. They've been sitting in a Chessex storage box for ~30 years, and now they will finally receive paint. Based on the info at Lost Mini's Wiki, there are a total of 156 models between both series. I have 81 in the Chessex box, and a couple loose that I need to track down. Since the my count for the entirety of 2017 was only 55 models, and factor in the other models that I will work on, this project will take a while. I am starting off with four models prepped: 887 - Berserker 869 - Chaotic Thief 820 - Henchman 8102 - Chaotic Swordsman Stay tuned for show offs.
