  1. I've been working on these two for a very long time. Well over a year I think. It's nice to finally get them off the paint table and into the display cabinet.
  2. For the Role Player that can't make up their mind! I give you the Eldritch Knight! or at least that is what I think it is called. I would wear armor too if I was tossing fireballs out like a crazy scooby doo villian. Another one of those Paizo Pathfinder minis prior to Reaper taking over. My friend has a bucket of them and I chose this one due to it's uniqueness. yes those are ashes and a body shaped scorch mark. TOASTY!
  3. Reaper calls this guy 77174: Leisynn, Mercenary Mage ($2.49) by Tim Prow. There are some, however, who call him..... TIM!
  4. So, using this new version of the forum, very exciting! So just got these two finished last night and photos taken this afternoon. Two pretty simple figures, I actually chose them because they were simple, kind of a "between projects" little paint job, and the added bonus was that they were mostly skin and cloth, very little armor, which is somewhat traumatizing. Reasonably happy on how they turned out. For the thief, her eyes were very deeply set, like some of Dennis Mize's figures are, so once I was actually able to get an eyeball into her, I didn't try to add an additional color or anything And the thief looks a little angry, but I think it's more the sculpt than my paint job, but who's to say for sure? and she has darkish skin and Dark hair, so dark brown eyes weren't too much of a stretch on her anyway. These two came from an old Silver and Steel Partha set from Ral Partha, the sets that were full of Larry Elmore beauties. For the mage, I didn't really go into it with any preconception of colors, so who knows where the reds and pinks came from, but I think it turned out kind of nicely, with vibrant colors instead of blah ones. So anyways, enjoy!
  5. This was my project for the morning, spent maybe 4 hours on it. The spots on the hat are my attempt at stars.
  6. Meet Hatholda Stormforge, a firery wild magic sorceror with lots of charisma to spare! I had a hard time finding a mini for my D&D game but I think she looks like a sorc in these colors.
  7. 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
  8. Joined an ongoing Pathfinder campaign, and made these to match the current enemies we have been fighting. One mage, and three thugs. Got basing left to do.: The mage is actually a Warhammer Flagellant with some elven bits. Edit for adding all pics to first post.: Edit: I've now used some more of my cultists for a Blood Bowl team. And there are still a few left on the sprues! This kit has such awesome value. They were all batch painted, last night, after using a couple to choose the scheme.:
  9. Next up is one of the better figure that I have painted of late. I painted this figure up to represent a wizard for Frostgrave. As this particular figure has a Native American vibe to it, I went with buckskins fo the clothing. All buckskin was too bland for her male counterpart so I added the blue to her outfit to help break it up. I carried over the blue to her eyes, the crystal on the staff and the gem in her circlet. I like how the hair came out. I kept messing up her left eye and finally gave up when it didn't look too bad. (believe me it looked plenty worse before).
  10. Qesnef, is an ogre mage who lost a bet with Keraptis and as a result must guard the fabled treasure of White Plume Mountain, the sword of Blackrazor, for 1001 years. In his true form Qesnef is a huge, horned, blue-skinned ogre but he normally uses his innate shape-changing magic to appear in the guise of a doughty Halfling when meeting unsuspecting adventurers. (excerpt from the back of the box, characters based on the White Plum Mountain dungeon Module) Painted for a friend. Cool model, I may end up painting one for myself one day.
  11. I finally got around to taking show-off photos of my ReaperCon entries. I had quite a few so I will not be posting them all at once. First up is one of my entries in the Painter's category. I had three entries in this category and this was the one chosen for judging. She is the Wood Elf Goddess from Dark Sword. She is the start of a tradition for me to enter the Dark Sword freebie from the ReaperCon swagbag into the contest the following year, she was the one from 2015. I pictured her in the ruins of a building that the forest has reclaimed and I used ruins from Morland Studios that I roughed up a little. I made the tree out of wire and Vallejo's plastic putty and while it is not perfect, it was my first tree. I am still not happy with the foliage but it was the only kind I had and when I realized it, it was too late to get a different color in time. I had issues with the feathers and major issues with the gem on the staff but the green cloth turned out exactly how I wanted. Also I think this is my best skin to date. She got me a Silver medal and I received great feedback from both Rhonda Bender and Jessica Rich. Any feedback from you guys would be greatly appreciated.
  12. So just finished this one up last night, wizard with staff from an old Ral Partha line. I actually like this figure quite a lot because he's an older guy, but has decided not to become a old, long-haired, long-bearded wizard in a big, billowing cloak, rather he's tried to keep himself a little more up with the times with some sensible clothing and a hair cut.
  13. This one was finished back in May but I was not able to take pictures until recently. I loved painting her and playing with colors and contrast.
  14. A project mostly done just to get painting, so it's far from perfect and I didn't take time to blend it out at all. Focus was on playing with some OSL and then I decided to try sculpting a base, so this is a huge step forward despite the lack of blending on it. Unfortunately, I used some liners to give character to the stone and haven't sealed the mini, so it's pretty shiny along the walls and you can't see any of the subtlety there. I'll hit it with dullcote and see if I can get better pics and update this post later, if so. And though my intention was to not blend, I /may/ go back and do just a minor blend pass on the blue OSL highlight on the wall because that's bugging me :) Hope you enjoy! WIP here
  15. This week I finished up the Derro Mage from the Bones 2, Expansion 1, Derro Set. I plan to use him as a Soothsayer type wizard for Frostgrave. I'm really pleased with how this fellow turned out. I'm particularly proud of the big eye on his chest. I think he and the Apprentice I posted earlier make a pretty good "odd couple" Soothsayer pair.
  16. My first caster for Frostgrave. Harsh and honest critiques are most welcome.
  17. Hi! A quick simple paint job on a really beautifully sculpt mini. Hope you guys like it. As usual any feedback and critiques are very welcome.
  18. I bought some of the bones mouslings for my wife to paint. Well she never got around to it and I needed a druid/animal mage who was going to animate a treant in our game so I slapped some paint of this little guy. Now I'm really looking forward to the bee keeper one. I also have the rogue and assassin set too. I stole the shooting star robe idea from someone who was doing an eye painting tutorial on youtube. Mine comes no where near his though.
  19. Painted this for a friend who requested an egyptian eye to be painted on the standard. I don't do much freehand stuff, hopefully he will like it. I was going for a magic bottle containing maybe spirits inside, but could not make a ghost face on the bottle without it looking like Casper. :P Hope you enjoy
  20. Man, I hate learning things the hard way. This is Argia Tholos from Hasslefree Miniatures and the original figure is bald. Which she was up until I saw the result of my second layer of floor polish to varnish the figure. She had been hanging upside down to dry which had created a egg head effect when the floor polish collected on the top of her head. I tried to cut it off but eventually was forced to scalp her completely. That resulted in a mark down to the skull which would have been kind of neat if I had painted her up as a zombie. Since I wasn't doing that I was forced to break out some milliput and use my non existent sculpting talents to try and save the situation. It could definitely have been worse, but it could also have been much much better. Although there's nothing I can do about that now. Looking past the major varnish failure I was really happy with the result. The resulting miniature post "Project save face" is acceptable. Perhaps abit to much orange all around? Should I have gone for a different hair color?
  21. I was going for a Final Fantasy White Mage type deal.
  22. Ok, this one is all Ub3r's fault. During a Facebook conversation he talked me into attending and entering the Southern California Area Historical Miniature Show last month. I had just received an order from Dark Sword which contained this mini and I had to paint her. I pictured her coming up to a ravine in a forest that was not easily crossed with a creek or river running through it. Ub3r suggest a broken bridge and since I had already been thinking of doing an intact bridge, I went with it. So she was painted up and entered. I entered three pieces into their Advanced Painters, Fantasy category: this one; Albert from Hasslefree; and my Dark Sword Assassin from last September. As this was an open/medal competition, she was chosen as the piece judged and got me a Silver Medal, both of which means that my skills have improved since last year. Without further ado: ]
  23. Hey! I painted the model of wizard Leisyn, Mage Mercenaries! And HERE you will find a post on my blog!
  24. I finished up this project this morning. The staff/glaive is my second real attempt at NMM and I'm not entirely happy with the transitions. All part of practicing, though. She was a fun one to paint!
