    Mushroom Mage, Dark Sword Miniatures

    Fun Dark Sword mage that I finished recently. I painted her fairly quickly so I did not do a WIP thread. I am really happy with how her skin turned out, I think skin is finally clicking with me. Also tried NMM gold for the first time and actually really enjoyed it. Defintely will do more NMM in the future as it made painting the fiddly bits easier. TMM was a pain when I previously painted Dark Sword Miniatures with similar ornaments, it’s good for large areas not so much for tiny ones. One last thing is a slight conversion, she was sculpted with a bottle in her hand that I made into a mushroom to tie her to the base more.

    02319: Amathor Arch Mage

  3. These two minis are the same character, one in an action pose as an eldritch knight, and the other as arch mage of the mages college. These are for an upcoming pathfinder campaign. These are custom heroforge minis I printed and sculpted flames on the sword for added effect.
  4. This is a teeny-tiny old Ral Partha dwarf. I don't know the SKU. Ratmaster2000 identified him as 01-070b, Dwarf Seer w/ Crystal Ball. I suspect he was sculpted by Tom Meier, given the delicacy and the anatomical accuracy. He is the first dwarf I have finished from the WIP thread Jade Green and Seven Dwarfs: 60184: Meyanda, Android Priestess and a bunch of dwarfs as Exalted Jadeborn. As ever, comments and critiques are welcome. How small is he? This small:

    14060: Leisynn, Mercenaries Mage

    Here is a miniature that I used as my character for Dungeons & Dragons. I changed the snake's colors 3 times before I was happy with it. I ended up using the colors of my real life pet snake.
  6. This is one of two figures in the Dungeons & Dragons Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures line Male Tiefling Mage. It was one of the first minis I picked up when I was learning to paint. I wasn't sure how I wanted to paint it, so it's been sitting in my inventory for a few months. Now that I have some experience with lighting effects, I decided to go over the top with the color.

    77413: Margara, dwarf shaman

    It's hard to figure out some of the details on the Bones version, but I think I did ok.

    02726: Tuilin, Female Elf

    Needed to relax and paint for fun for a change, and wanted to try some new paints. This was a Fun little one, in spite of a slight miscast. Tuilin: It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but I even managed to get pupils in her eyes that I’m happy with, yay! The blue is a Vallejo shade I wanted to try out. It’s turquoise in English, but the Spanish name is Halcón Milenario (Millennium Falcon). I don’t know why they call it that as Han’s ship was most certainly not this color, but it’s pretty. Shadows and highlights were attempted by adding MSP Nightmare Black and Dragon White, respectively. Her hair was another attempt at the Blond Hair triad, which is taking a bit of effort to get a handle on. It didn’t help that all my brushes are failing on me right when it’s not possible to get new ones. Comments and critiques welcome!

    "Darius the blue", 25th anniversary

    I actually started a WIP for this miniature: but the idea was to show how I tried to copy the blue mosaic on the clothing that reaper did. I couldn't. That's the story of a failure. So I finally just painted him on a slightly different color scheme, and here we have the results... That's my Darius the blue and his cute rat familiar, Kyorli.

    CAH's Elven Mage... for a friend.

    This is a piece I did for a friend of mine. It's for his D&D character who is currently trapped in the underdark. He said the character was an Evocation Specialist, using Ice lance, Lightening bolt, and fireball. The color palette came from that idea, using cool colors for the ice lance, and the warm colors from the fireball. The hair, though you cant tell from my awesome cellphone picture, is actually highlighted with metallic Mirthril, since the character has silvery hair. Overall, I am really happy with how he came out. I am planning to do a cave like base, but for now the solid base will work. Enjoy! CAH
  11. As with all of my pieces, this was painted with Reaper MSP, and Reaper Bones MSP. The robes are the layered blues (Void Blue, Tropical, Glacier, and Frost). The hair was done with Gothic Crimson, Valcanic Orange, and Canary Yellow. The white parts of the robe were completed using Khaki Shadow, Bleached Linen, and Dragon White. The gold was Desert Stone, Golden blonde, then washed with a Candlelight yellow glaze. I like the effect overall. I had fun with this piece, but it was mainly an exercise in rebasing. I wanted to add him to a clear acrylic base, so that I could see how well it would come out. I've seen many figures, mostly for board games, on this type of base, and I thought it would be neat for my players. Also, the bases that I put on my figures, are sometimes distracting to my players during the game. Things like snow on a figure base, but the adventure is currently in a tropical jungle or desert. Nothing major, but I thought it might be a little less distracting for game pieces. I still plan on decorating the bases of my display pieces. So, what do you think of the piece overall? CAH
  12. This is not a Goblin Paint Challenge, but I am painting on her in support of OneBoot's attempt to finish DDS2, which contains this figure. About 2 hours work last night, I have the skin and hair, and started roughing out the shading on the staff. The plan is to do her robes in blue-black.

    Istariel - Judgement

    This is Istariel from Judgement. I am pretty happy with how she turned out. I used the Olive Skin triad on her. I just bought them at Cancon and wanted to test them out. Really like them so will be ordering some of the other skin triads soon. I used several other Reaper paints including Nightshade Purple (my favorite!), and the clears = red, yellow, and purple. She is the first 54 mm that I have painted. I figured with her being larger, her eyes would be bigger. Nope! With so much fire and the way that it wraps around her, it was hard to do realistic highlights and shadows. I instead decided to highlight and shade her "normally" with some respect to the fire as a light source but not a set in stone guideline. I then did OSL on her using the colors of which part of the flame I thought would be hitting particular areas. My favorite parts are her right side, her underlit underboobs, and the back of her hair. She has a lean. I have reglued her twice and she still leans. I am sure it is user error but damned if I can get her to stand straight! Thanks for looking. C&C always welcome.

    WIP glowing orb

    Here is a figure I am working on for an ongoing D&D campaign. He has this glowing ball thing. buckyball
  15. Last year PingosHusband, after noodling around Exalted (2nd edition) and World of Darkness rulebooks (Vampire the Masquerade 2nd edition, Werewolf the Apocalypse, Mage the Ascension, etc.), announced that he'd like to run an Exalted game set in the World of Darkness. We, his friends and loved ones, said “What, are you crazy? Have we not long joked about how unplayable and internally inconsistent the World of Darkness is; how its timeline makes no sense and its rules and worldbuilding are buried and often mutually contradictory; how foolish and suicidally incurious the various groups are regarding each other; and how so many of its many tragic angsty world-destroying problems could be solved if only each isolated group got its head out of its backside and actually talked to one of the others?” He said, “Hear me out,” and since we have long experience of his keen ability to run entertaining campaigns, we heard him out. See, PingosHusband has a knack rather like Alan Moore's ability to take unpromising old third rate comic book series and turn them into fascinating multifaceted mythic dynamos, or Neil Gaiman's ability to mine world mythology to create astounding and consistent and multilayered worlds, or James Burke or Kenneth Hite’s ability to take fascinating historical and technological developments and spin them into stories of human interconnectivity or disturbingly deep illuminati conspiracies for game use, respectively. More than once PingosHusband has taken historical oddments, played “What happens if this is taken seriously and assumed to make sense somehow?” and produced some wonderful story or game setting or world. (One of them won awards.) So apparently he did this with Exalted and World of Darkness, getting under the hood, finding the core of what worked and what didn’t, seeing what could be connected to what else and what made sense, what was clearly absurd, what needed tweaking, what could be fun, what couldn’t be possible, why things happened, and who could have done them. He looked keenly at characters, places and situations, saw potential for fun in a campaign, wrote up background, and presented us with an introductory players’ handout. I’ll get to particulars later. The simple version is that the world looks basically like the World of Darkness, except that all of a sudden a tiny number of people have Exalted with memories of the world of Exalted (“Creation”) and powers derived from it. There are five to begin with (the PCs), although more will come soon enough. I have to say, this game has so far been tremendous fun. Our group has been playing together for over thirty years and I have rarely seen all of us this excited about a game. Our teenage / adult children are also involved and we have been having vivid family conversations over meals about history, strategy, and characters. I’ve (of course) been painting up miniatures for the game. I’m having a lot of fun with these too. I’ll put links to Show Off threads when I have them up.

    Anghela, Dwarf Mage

    After painting the dragon for the Paint Your Dragon Contest, I needed a "palette cleanser" before starting on the Jedi children minis for my grandkids' Christmas ornaments. They are even tinier than the dwarf so it was good for me to practice on a little mini again. Her eyes, especially her right one gave me fits. Other than that eye, I am pretty happy with her and she is just for play anyway. I tried to really push my highlights on her. I think I am usually too conservative. This time, I may have overdone it but I like her and she was for practice so she'll stay this way most likely. I did a wash on her hair but it really knocked the highlights down so I re=highlighted. Also, I realize once I saw the photos, she has a tiny bit of flock stuck to the front of her. I have tweezed that off but did not retake the photos as it didn't make that big of difference. Any C&C is appreciated.
  17. I finally finished my Dragons Don't Share! I have another that I purchased to paint sometime next year! For this one, I was inspired by the ruins of Pompeii. I went with the yellowish stones and added frescoes and statues. There is also a bird in a nest, a lizard, butterfly, and bunny in amongst the ruins. I used a lizard photo to design my dragon instead of going with a "usual" color. I thought he fit in with the ruins. You can see the work in progress here: C&C welcome! Thanks for looking! There are lots more photos on my page. The link is in my signature.

    DSM Sitting Mage

    I managed to finish this miniature just before I left for RCon 17. While she wasn't the one that got judged, I though she came out ok. Though the photo not so much.
  19. So I started a little project in which I have five or six figures, old Grenadiers, that I painted when I was a teenager in the eighties. I found new copies of them and have started doing comparative paint jobs, ones from the eighties and my new job from 2017. I did my first one, Frito the thief: and now I'm doing one for a Grenadier thief mage, which I think came in one of their old Grenadier paint kits. So here is the version from this century: to compare him against my original version, painted somewhere between 1980-1986: and then here they are together: In this particular figure I tried to use mostly the same color scheme, with a few exceptions. I changed the color of the flame and tried to create a "vial" hanging on his belt, which I don't know how well it worked, but it's kind of my first attempt at liquids and bottles. With his dart bandolier on his bicep, I gave that a bit of color too. Anyhow, enjoy, I'll have another one done tomorrow, and a few more in the wings, a monk, cleric, and a wererat at the very least...

    mystic theurge

    This little fella looked great to do yet again from some of the pics I'd seen but yet again there was a lot more to it than met the eye. I have since changed the light I am painting under and noticed I can make out the details a little better but I lost my way a bit with this one after the blue robes and red scarf, so the spell book and whatever it is on his other hip are undone and his hair so I have filed it here. Please feel free to comment and stuff I like to hear what others think as there has been some real good feedback so far.

    Mouseling Mage - 77548

    This is the little mage that goes with the Wizard in the Mouseling Wizards set from Bones 3. She hasn't been sealed yet so the orb isn't glossy and she herself is a bit shiny in places. Another fun little mouse! I even gave her lavender eye shadow. It was hard to tell what a couple things on her were. I guessed it is a scroll case attached to one side of her belt with a pouch. I have no idea what is supposed to be under her other arm attached to her belt. We'll see if she makes an appearance in tomorrow's game! C&C welcome!

    DSM-1187 Sitting Female Mage

    Not much, just a photo of the figure with some primer.
  23. For your consideration, I offer Nolevniss Azrinae: Reaper Miniature 60162. Or in this Multiverse: Elariel Moonshadow This elf Magi was an active sculpt to paint. The robes and cloak are dynamic in portrayal of wind movement and direction. The robes were long and laying folded in back, which suggests weight and volume. Limited palette with work on suggesting different textures of cloth. Teeny eyes. Delicate sculpt too with the hair and features. And the familiar was an enjoyable if not surreal sculpt. I was told by the person who wanted this painted, "And paint the baby dragon gold." When I popped my Opti-visor on I was like, "That's not a dragon..." This creature reminded me of the haemonculus familiar from earlier Dungeons and Dragons editions, while the head reminded me of an eye-less vampire bat. What you see is the result. Cute. (But you don't want to be left alone in the same room with it.) The staff is a weapon of Power - like Purple Name power. Spell book and scrolls along with bandolier pouches told me a story of a travelling Mage - even his staff clutched a simple stone at the foot to act as counterweight. But not a nice guy. I hope you enjoy him. :) Peace and blessings.
