  1. My most recently complete project is the lovely ladies of Oathsworn Miniature's "Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3" Kickstarter. As always, they are a joy to paint. They have nice, bold details but without being overwrought. They definitely look like a bunch of starting adventurers! The theme this time was more exotic races, notably a bunch from "Volo's Guide to Monsters" The ladies ascend the mountain: The Kitsune. She could be a lightly armored Fighter, a Rogue, or a Ranger. The Kenku (or Tengu) Shaman. Or Wizard. Or Sorcerer. Or whatever. She's got a bone to pick with you! The Kenku or Tengu Rogue. I went with oranges for them to continue my previous work on the Bones Tengu...which were also dressed in orange to match the official D&D pre-paints. The Dragonborn, could be a Fighter or Paladin. The decision to make her red was regrettable...with that pointy face and dreads, I kept thinking of Ugandan Warrior Knuckles. Stupid memes getting in the way! Tabaxi or Catfolk. I tried to go with more of a Ranger color scheme than the intended Rogue. The other Tabaxi/Catfolk from the set. I liked the intent of this sculpt...she could be a spellcaster, a Monk, or a Bard! The Halfling Knight. Her mount was painted after my own painting gremlin, Hershey. He would be much smaller to scale, though. The Tiefling Paladin. I really like the pose of this one, though I questioned the hooves, as 4E and 5E Tieflings of this design have human feet. I may wind up greenstuffing her into boots at some point. The Firbolg Druid. As far as I know, this is the only miniature of a 5E style Firbolg. The Minotaur Swashbuckler. I bet you were expecting a cow joke here. The terrain:
  2. I recently got in the latest "Heroines in Sensible Shoes" Kickstarter from Oathsworn Miniatures. I decided to get started on them and take (yet another) break from my in progress Rising Sun minis. As \always, they were nice, clean casts with lots of detail, but nothing over-wrought...which makes sense for low-level adventurers! They're such a joy to paint.
  3. Edit - project is now live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/heroines-in-sensible-shoes-3-miniatures-for-rpgs Starting on Monday, for probably 14 days, Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3 - Not every heroine is human. Teaser pic, as there's only five minis sculpted so far! I'll be sculpting at least 7 more throughout the project, taking input and suggestions from the backers... So far, there's a firbolg druid, tabaxi and kenku rogues, a minotaur barbarian, and a hobgoblin eldritch knight. After consulting with our previous backers, the the most popular suggestions are - another tabaxi, probably either a monk or wizard; a tiefling wizard, and a tiefling paladin or cleric; another kenku (probably a magic user of some sort); a dragonborn paladin; a tortle (no ideas on class or equipment yet!); and finally a human barbarian, heavy, powerful build, but not lean. I'm open to suggestions though, so if you have any, please let me know! cheers Michael
  4. Lidless Eye Hobbies: Eastern Legends

    Another set complete! This time it's a group of Eastern Fantasy themed adventurers and encounters. Almost all the minis are from the third Bones Kickstarter, with the exception of the Tengu/Kenku Monk armed with kamas. She's from Stonehaven. The group: The Oni: The Kitsune. The male is one of my favorites...I hadn't even noticed the sake glass in his hand until I started painting! That and his swagger make for a very characterful sculpt. Just some Human Monks: The Kenku/Tengu: This is the non-Reaper one, a Monk from Stonehaven Miniatures: Flock!
  5. Tengu Wizard - 03775

    I was really surprised with this model. A friend picked it out and I painted it for him, I don't think I would have looked twice at this model otherwise. I searched, used some google fu, but I could not find a single painted version of it to use as some kind of reference (which sort of worried me because sometimes I can't figure out what something is on a model. I love the staff with the face carved at the top (or maybe it was real, cut off and mounted on top? looked like part of the wood to me, but somebody could easily painted it that way) I never even noticed just skimming through Reapers model pages. I was unsure about the stance he is taking, but once it is painted, I thought it was really cool and looks like he is casting something wicked. The color combinations: personally I feel like I took a lot of chances, a couple of different color wash experiments, along with the blue/purple highlights and the cosmic stars in his cloak. Never did any of that before. I had a hard time with the base, but I tried to keep it in the fall theme as the other Tengu I painted only this one I made a little muddy and a little more leafy.
  6. 03698: Tengu Rogue

    I painted this kenku today. I would have liked playing with other colors for the beak and feathers, but my players will be meeting their first wereraven in Curse of Strahd next week so I went with boring black on black. I was picking between this model and the owl bear from reaper bones. The owl bear has that fierce lycan look, but it was more expensive so the kenku won out. This is actually my first non-bones miniature to paint which added to my decision process. I used a grey brush on primer for it because I've been having problems with the humidity and the spray primer I usually use. This is my first time flocking a base as well. It turned out ok, but I'm sure there is a much better way to go about it. I'm going to clean the flocking up a bit once it completely dries. I was considering using a brush on sealer on it. My tests on the flocking show that the sealer completely ruins the snow look and makes it just look like slush so I'll probably just leave it be.
  7. I have a couple of Kenku from the WOTC line, but would love something a little different from these. Any suggestions (preferably with pix) would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Alberonn
