    Kings of War: Undead Necromancer

    This mini is by Mantic for the Kings of War game, which I think is defunct, and so I got some of them cheap. I like him him a lot. Can’t wait to inflict my D&D players with an undead guy...who summons undead guys. (Wash, rinse, repeat)
  2. Who says elves have to be sprightly woodland-lovers? (Oh, and hey, @Beagle, I'm painting elves!). I spotted this recent Reaper release, sculpted by Werner Klocke, and thought he looked interesting. All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios. Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated. This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers. I usually start with the skin on character minis. A good mix for Caucasian-type flesh in the pale ranges is straight Burnt Sienna and Titanium White, which is how I started him. I laid in a wash of dark blackish mixed from Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna over his hair and shaded his skin a bit with of Burnt Umber in the skin mix. Went in and painted his face in some detail. Later: More!

    03880: Phineas Greybone, Necromancer

    03880: Phineas Greybone, Necromancer sculpted by Tre Manor Overall I'm really happy with how the light effects worked out. This was a really difficult miniature to photograph. The main challenges painting him were the glowing skull and the very irregular base. I tired to make the skull stand out by making very deep purple shadows around it. I used red, orange and white glazes and appear to glow, but without making it look too orange. Making the base look dark enough was very difficult because it has a very irregular surface and every jagged edge catches the real light and makes it look brighter than I want it to in comparison to the shadow areas on the main figure. In future for a project of this type, I would use a smoother style of base so I have more control over the shadows and lighting like on the main figure. Comments and criticism are welcome.

    DSM8020, Female Fox Mage

    Hi everyone, good Friday! Here is DSM8020, the Female Fox Mage. This 28mm pewter model sculpted by David Summers for Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms - Anthropomorphic Animals. The grimoire and dagger inspired me to paint her as a dark fur Necromancer. I was deligted by the amazing detail of this model, the dagger scabbard, the candle monted on the staff and the textured fabric are impressive and were a pleasure to paint.
  6. This is Reaper 03042, the second version of Morrdha, Vampire Noble, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. I don't know what his story is, but both versions are casting something from a book of Up to No Good, and both have a little demon thing lurking at their feet. I loved the lively cape on this figure, and the melodrama. I decided to paint him ginger and make his armor look appallingly rusty. Oh, right, and while I did not exactly do NMM or anything, I did paint his sword with pigmented colors instead of my usual sloshing on of metallic silver. There is no WIP thread, but I would be happy to answer questions. Comments and critiques are also welcome.
  7. Well, I finally have gotten around to starting up the Necromancer's from Zombicide: Black Plague. I could have started with the core Necro, but I felt inspired to start with Grin. Now I as I painted him up I had to constantly tell myself he's only for gaming. But I think he has some character. The game fiction has him being a Necromancer that failed at an attempt to bring out the dead, from a pesky adventurer. So I decided to give him a similar complexion to my zombies. Then I decided to attempt to give him some red lips to enhance his grin. In the end for a table top mini I think he came out ok. Though After painting him up I noticed a few spots I'll touch up. Then I though that he would have look cool painted up as a not-joker. *Sigh* Maybe someday I'll look to see if I can acquire another copy. Thanks for any C&C you feel inspired to give.
  8. I love a necromancer who actually looks like an old, old, old men who is determined to keep beeing old, but alive, for centuries thanks to his magic. To me that miniature was all about trying to keep the detail on the face, not loose it's wrinkles, and maybe I neglected a bit the rest. Now I see it in photo, the clothes could be better (particularly the blacks), and the metals...

    Vatanis, Maggotcrown Necromancer

    I've first seen Vatanis as part of the Maggotcrown expansion on Reaper Bones IV Kickstarter. I inmediately added the expansion on my already excessive pledge; but to me Bones is only for the tabletop. On my showcases I want metal or at least resin miniatures with better definition, so I bought him as soon as the metal version was aviable. I think the miniature has a lot of character, and tells quite the story. First, it's a tiefling, a half demon on classic D&D. Then, apparently, a necromancer; a warlock too maybe, a generalist magician. But judging from his muscle tone and leather bandana we can assume he is also some kind of a warrior/rogue. We can expect him to be a deceiver, a powerful foe, a dangerous villain for our heroes. I didn't liked the scheme we can see on Reaper store, so I gived him another one a bit more sober, classic necromancer palette.

    Vordakai, Cyclops Lich

    One of my favourite sculpts, quite a weird creature. I love wizards. I'm happy with the color palette, the blues and greens combine just fine with the skin tone and I think I blended them nicely.
  11. This is one of those practice figures I had lying around, a Bones mini I didn't clean the flash off or prepare much, but was just painting for fun and practice while I was doing other things. (So I don't have a WIP, although I might be able to recreate one.) Then one of my GMs looked at it and said Yeah, that one, we'll need that. So I refined it up and finished it. This is a charmingly ludicrous female necromancer from the imagination of Bob Ridolfi. I painted her up with stark white skin -- oh, I can't remember why, originally, but now she is going to be used as a vampire, so that works. The skull she is holding is clearly a mask. It has a flat back. She was rather fun.
  12. Melody (aka Mel) the Necromancer is complete! She is clearly a Slytherin. Adventures: shading green with purple (thanks CMPA), NMM scythe, hiding a bad foot with paint, heck of a tattoo, granite, and accidentally painting a familiar face. Mel will be used in my D&D campaign as a potential romance interest to the Necrobard in an attempt to sway him towards evil. Some photos are zoomed on face, scythe, and the rock. WIP:

    77283: Necromancer

    Well, this isn't the prettiest miniature I've painted, but I'd intended it more for practice in getting better at blending and highlighting than to be a fantastic final product, since I think my previous minis tended to have very stark transitions. Thought process and more photos at: link On the whole, while it has room for improvement, I kind of like how it turned out. The blending on the scythe blade could've been better, but I think it's a big step forward from what I was ending up with on previous minis. The white and yellow still jump out more than I'd like, but the greens at least seem to have a nice transition from about end of the notch to the tip. The skin could've used a little more highlighting, especially around the right knee, but at least I was able to get the sort of corpsy/sickly/necrotic look that I was aiming for. I tried to go for a kind of "cast in shadows" look on the face to go along with the hood, and I'm fairly pleased with what it ended up being, though I think the eyes look more like empty sockets than sunken shadows. The ribs are kind of janky, and I'll just have to live with that. I do really like how the cloth turned out, though, looking like a dank and rotten shroud that's been smeared with all kinds of dirt and crap. On the other hand, the base really didn't work out how I'd wanted. I tried to go for a sort of slate look with a dark blue-grey under some lighter bits, but I really needed to either highlight further or to darken/sharpen the recessed edges, if not both. Oh well, as I said, this was basically a practice/experiment piece, and if nothing else, I do feel like I managed to learn a little as I worked on it. C&C welcome. I'd especially love to hear any tips on how I could've gotten more of a "flowing magical construct" look with the scythe blade, as opposed to the current "colored piece of plastic" look.
  14. I do have a princess mousling to alleviate the death and dead stuff painting I've been doing. But I couldn't resist putting a face on this one. Any resemblance to FLOTUS is entirely coincidental, seriously. I think the shading/highlighting toned it down, but the figure does have the angular structure on the face. To conceal the mold lines I failed to remove on her exposed leg and arm I'm going to freehand some tattoos. I really should do better on removing mold lines. Oh well.
  15. Happy Birthday @NecroMancer!!!!
  16. I got my Stephanie Law KS pack from DSM. Its awesome. There are many more pieces to glue than in Reaper figures so I'm kinda worried about that. Anyway, onto the not so pressing but very fun matter. I had the honor of being the first one to get a goofed up package in the kickstarter. I got the male necromancer (arms and body), the arms of the male bard, and a second male necromancer body. DSM swiftly sent out a replacement bard, complete with a body and arms. Goal: The Necrobard Now I have spare bard arms and a spare necromancer body. Dilemma: the arms are well, arms. The body needs a single arm. The socket is also not perfect due to slightly different clothing but it is darn close. The arm and the arm-hole that are needed are both at the elbow joint. How would you recommend taking the right hand off the lute so that the male necromancer can be holding a lute in front of him in his left hand? Thus he would become the necrobard, who would sing the dead back to life.

    Been a while since I posted here. Been a few slow months. Did get to play around with OSL, and plenty of gore on this one. I like gore. :D :

    77172: Malek Necromancer (New to Painting)

    Hello I recently got into painting miniatures and I found I LOVE it! I play three different tabletop RPGs and I desperately needed mini's and that's how I got into it. It's my new favorite hobby and I wanted to join the community to get some feedback and help to make these better and to learn different methods and new techniques. I'll be posting the very small handful I did on the forums (again super noobie, but please critique so I can learn!!!!). Thanks everyone!
  19. I have for you two day both a commission ( the dwarf ) and a figure painted by a student ( the Necromancer ). I offer painting classes at my store and this was one of the first minis painted by a student with 0 prior experience I think all things considered she turned out amazing. One of my favorite part of the mini's hobby is getting to make custom bases and even though the base on the dwarf Captain may seem simple I feel it brings a lot to the character and makes them feel like they are on the deck of a ship.
  20. This was actually the first new mini I bought after I regained my interest for miniatures a few years ago. I remember being a bit miffed by the metal mini not having the same level as detail as the green they used for advertising. After prepping it, the mini disappeared in some box or other for a while. I found it a few weeks ago, and had to repair the scythe top as the blade had ripped up the top of the staff. Some wire and green stuff later, it was servicable again. Still, it is a great mini, with a coat made of strange leathers... and the Necronomicon riding on his hip... Which means he must have remembered to say the words correctly befire picking it up!

  21. Hi all, I am again guilty as charged to neglect painting my miniatures. Instead I go on converting them...that said, I intend to paint her directly after she is finished to break the pattern. This time I decided to give Bones Mini 77175 a total make over. I found the sculpt very busy and the nose was unfortunately miscast. Anyhow, I am always quick with the blade and decapitated her, took away the sword on her back and got the greenstuff out. I intend to add a skeleton coming forth from the soil beneath her outstretched hand, which required me to rebase her. I started with the following: Head swap with one of Statuesque's Pulp Heads, a feather and a bone on her belt and a focus on her back. I also cut away a bit of her upper body to make space for my sculpting efforts and to make sure that she would have a neck. And some detail shots: As you can see the idea is to have a little mandrake man attached to the focus. Sculpting the face with big nose and squinty eyes was difficult, but I hope with paint on it will be clear that it is a mandrake. On the other side we have a skeletal hand attached to her focus and a small rodent skull. Her hood ends in a sleigh bell, that is why there is a sphere with a cross shaped indentation. Potentially needs some smoothing. Observations: The pictures are very good to show small flaws in the greenstuff. These will be covered with some fresh putty and smoothed out. Should I mix more yellow in to achieve a mix that can be better smoothed out? I read up about this topic and I also own a bottle of Tamiya grey surface primer and filler. Did you ever coat greenstuff wit that stuff and sanded it afterwards for a smooth finish? It is a brush-on lacquer based coating. Will this attack greenstuff? The coat itself looks a bit uneven in places. While this might fit a tattered cloak of a necromancer I might need to even it out. Opinions on this? Where the fabric is attached to her cuffs a metal ring or something similar should be added. Right now I don't think it is apparent how it is fastened. Opinions? Does her coat/dress make sense? I know that draped dresses where a thing in medieval times, but here the idea is that the arms of the coat drape down and are attached via rings to the cuff. The original model has only one draping piece on each side, but here we have two. Are there any real world examples for this? I know it is fantasy, but it should make sense. Should I add some strains of hair that come forth from her hood? Thank you in advance lads and lasses!

    02986: Eldessa, Necromancer

    I took my inspiration for this mini heavily from Natalya Melnik's (Alexi-Z) version. Fantastic mini to paint.
