  1. Pathfinder Version 2

    So this started to come up in a KS discussion so I thought I would just go ahead and start the topic to discuss it. I'm really not sure how I feel about it. I'm all for fixing some balance issues and other things, but I'm worried they are going to make it too video game like and more like 4E..
  2. 77016 BONES Giant Rats

    I finally finished by Giant Rats Dozen from Bones I. I tried to give them fur texture. The texture from the cast was too light for drybrushing, so it's essentially free hand. The gray rats have some red and green glazed into the shadows to give them a little diseased feel. I spent WAY too much time painting these... Mold lines on the actual rat (as opposed to the base) were too tricky to try to get rid of, especially in light of the subject matter. They’re rats. A lot of them. C&C Welcome.
  3. Here is my rendition of Kevoth-Kul, the Black Sovereign of Numeria. I sculpted this figure last year (2017) and painted him over the last month (Feb 2018). I started painting him at Paint Club in Denver, when I was visiting Gene Van Horne and Michael Proctor for the weekend. I met @Cyradis, among others. Numeria is the Pathfinder nation that blends fantasy barbarians with sci-fi. A spaceship from another galaxy crashed there long ago, and people have been plundering the tech-wreckage. Kevoth-Kul is the nominal ruler of Numeria, but someone else is pulling his strings. His goblet is full of delicious spaceship juice! Mmm, mmm. A full day's supply of Vitamin X! Oops, he spilled a few drops. His consort is Kul-Inkit: link to her Forum thread. Art for the Pathfinder Adventure Path book: link to cover at Paizo website. (Any resemblance to famous barbarians of Cimmeria is ... well ... probably well-intentioned homage on the part of Paizo Publishing and/or artist Wayne Reynolds.) Anyway ... the photos: I had painted some small "transparent" potion-bottles but not an item like this before. I paid attention to how Angela Imrie and other painters made solid miniatures look clear. The effect works best from these 2 photo angles, because you can convince yourself that you are seeing orange vapor through the glass goblet, though it is actually painted on the surface. It doesn't work as well from the side views. Enjoy, Derek
  4. 77399 Sigurd, Viking

    Hi everyone. Here is a mini I have been working on for several weeks. Lately, I am lucky to be able to paint a little every day. Unfortunately, it is only for 5-15 minutes at a time. This figure is part of my growing batch of options for my GM running us through the Pathfinder Adventure Path, Reign of Winter. I always thought blue, white, and gold were good colors together. It is popular in many heraldic devices. I am most happy with this figure in terms of the following: The freehand wood grain of the axe, the outcome of the gold NMM on the belt buckle/hardware in front. Also, getting his eyes right in the recesses of his helmet. What I am least happy with is the runes along the white part of the tabard trim. The area is too small to work with to really get good darklining around each rune, so they are a little indistinct. Also, I tried to make each one its own independent polished gold SENMM. I don't think it turned out too well, because it's just too small an area for each piece. I tried it on the scabbard as well, which worked a little better. But, this is the most confusing part of highly polished SENMM: Do multiple pieces at different heights have their own horizon line? I painted it as if they do, but am not sure that's realistic... Also, the transition of the cow horns on his helmet is a little washed out in the photo, but also very subtle in hand. Finally, one additional comment. I have seen a lot of posts about this figure comparing it to the metal version, and bemoaning a lack of detail in the BONES version. I really tried to bring out the life of this BONES model, because I personally feel that the sculpt is great, and the translation to BONES is very good. So, without further ado, here is my version of Sigurd, Viking, BONES 77399. Please provide C&C, especially as it pertains to the issues I brought up above. Thank you.

    The title says it all Has anyone come up with stats for pathfinder for Ma'al Drakar?

  7. Here's another recent paint. It still goes along with the Reign of Winter AP theme, though I don't know if the Adventure Path has a Polar Bear or not. This figure represents an example of "It looked better in my head." I tried following some pictures of polar bears on the web: It seems some are very yellowed (not necessarily in the shadows), and some are very white. So, I started with a base of 50/50 Golden Blonde/Linen White, and successively lightened it up to white, and left the darker color in the shadows. I thought the fur quality on this BONES sculpt is very good, so it lent itself well to a mix of drybrushing and picking out individual strands with the brush. I tried something different for the snow on the base, just some puddles of white glue that I then painted with Ghost White and Pure White. C&C Welcomed.
  8. Here's Kul-Inkit, a character from the fifth installment of the Pathfinder "Iron Gods" Adventure Path (#89: "Palace of Fallen Stars"). I sculpted this figure in early 2017 and painted her last week (January 2018). She is a great warrior but unhappy in her role as consort to Kevoth-Kul, "the Black Sovereign", nominal ruler of Numeria. (He is also Reaper figure #60189.) Your characters might meet her in his palace. Numeria blends fantasy barbarians with sci-fi. A spaceship from another galaxy crashed there many years ago, and people have been plundering the wreckage. The overall color scheme is from the art in the book, but I posed her differently when I sculpted her, since the pose in the book wouldn't have worked as well for casting in miniature. The concept art reminded me of the model Linda Evangelista, who I think had this hairstyle at some point in her career. For the non-metallic metals (NMM) on the axe and shield and back-plate, I used several colors and scratchy strokes at various angles with very fine brushes. Just trying something different. Enjoy, Derek
  9. Here's Skreed Gorewillow, a character from the first installment of the Pathfinder "Giantslayer" Adventure Path (#91: "Battle of Bloodmarch Hill"). I sculpted this figure in the summer of 2016 and painted him a few weeks ago. He is a tall and gangly half-orc, whose blond hair probably means his mother was Ulfen (Pathfinder Viking). The magical tattoos on his face let him change his appearance ... the better to pursue his deceitful agenda! The colors are from the art in the book, by Johan Grenier. He used a lot of fine brushwork in the piece -- such as the tattoos on his face and shoulders, and the scratches and wrinkles -- so that influenced how I painted the figure. (You can find the image by doing an online search for "pathfinder skreed".) Enjoy, Derek
  10. My current project. Pretty happy with how her skin came out.
  11. 77437 Winter Wolf, by Sandra Garrity

    Also to go along with our Reign of Winter campaign. This is the BONES Winter Wolf. I had the most fun with the eyes. Some of the pics came out a little dark, despite 3 lights. It must be a camera thing... C&C Welcome.
  12. I haven't posted much lately. Work and life have been busy. We have been playing Reign of Winter. The GM told me there would be some Snow Goblins. I thought these Bones Gremlins look a lot like Pathfinder Goblins, so I gave them a wintry paint scheme and some snowy bases. C&C Welcome
  13. Kevoth-Kul the Black Sovereign. Am I the only person to have painted this? I usually like to take a look at other painted interpretations of minis that I'm considering to paint. I can't find a single one of this guy anywhere. I can't be the only one who likes it.
  14. I painted this Karzoug, Runelord of Greed for a friend of mine to use as his climactic encounter in his campaign (yes that one). Tried to make him awesome, eventually chose to leave some of the freehand edges out, cause damnnn... Still I am quite pleased with him.
  15. I'm playing in a World of Darkness campaign and we need a bunch of vampires. I'm adapting Patrick Keith's 60138: Sheila Heidmarch, Venture Captain to be a vampire, because not all female vampires hang around graveyards in unlikely and suspicious states of undress. 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. She's such a pretty and elegant figure! I left off her short sword and staff and filled in the slight dimples where they were meant to go with a little Golden Molding Paste applied with the point of a bamboo skewer. The stuff shrinks when drying, so I heaped it up a little. 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. (I seem to be having a little trouble with it crackling just a bit in some areas, though.) It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers (even though, eh, with a vampire you don't necessarily want "warmth".) I like to paint skin first as something of the undermost layer. After I have the skin more or less smooth and correct I paint the features. I have been painting up vampires with stark white skin because I don't seem to have the knack to make them look undead if there is even a little flesh tone in their skin. Maybe I should paint them violet or something ... Anyhow, this is almost the only time I ever mix grey from pure black and white, rather than a complex mix of brighter colors. The flatness of tone conveys something wrong with the individual, and the simplicity of color mix is very easy to shade. I started with a thin wash of pure Titanium White on her face, neck, bust, and hands. Then (close ups for a while now) I laid in the first pale shadows. All greys are mixed from Titanium White and Carbon Black. Darker shadows and some lights. She's rather a mess now, but you can see how the skin shading is beginning to go.
  16. Yoon - 60200

    I painted up Yoon. She is so adorable! Since she's a kiddo, I wanted her to seem whimsical so I gave her rosy cheeks and purple and yellow striped pants. Her stuffed owl is SO tiny! I enjoyed painting her. C&C welcome!
  17. 89014: Seltyiel, Iconic Magus

    I finished Seltyiel earlier this month. My first real attempt at OSL, and it went really well! Feed back always welcome, especially on the lighting. Thanks!
  18. Ezren Thing

    I needed Ezren's arm w/staff to modify another miniature that my friend did not like the candelabra it was holding. I painted this Ezren to look like the other one he has off mine and green stuffed it tentacles with any leftover greenstuff I had over time. Hopefully he can find a gaming use for this doppelganger.
  19. 89004 - Pathfinder Goblin Warchanter

    This is my first to-completion detailed mini outside of the three LTP-2 figures. I'm looking to start a Rise of the Runelords game and needed a warchanter figure; this one from Reaper is wonderful in its detail and goblinesque insanity. Unfortunately, I think the molds are a little off-kilter on the Bones version; there are several spots on the figure where one side butts up against a flat spot from the other half of the mold - you can even see one of them in the Reaper website image. I found myself departing from the LTP painting order and starting with "inner" areas like eyes and mouth as well as isolated details like the whip and blades. Skin and leather were left until late, with details on top of those the last. Don't know if this is a good thing or not, but I felt more sure in painting up to those areas rather than filling them in and inevitably splattering over multi-layered skin tones. Thanks to the folks at CMPA for the painting tips as I'm learning. Wish I could have been to the holiday party; finished this ravaging beauty as compensation.
  20. Karzoug, the Claimer

    A friend of mine asked me to paint his Karzoug for: So I have been going at it. While I have already done quite a bit, I still figured lets make it a WIP. Session 1 Session 2 Session 3 I am not quite happy with a lot of details yet, but he is starting to smell like 'high level wizard'. :)
  21. Bones Balazar, Gnome Summoner

    Balazar, the gnome summoner (Reaper 89023) was fun to paint. That mould line running down the side of his hat thing was not that visible when I painted him. Oh well, another one done, yay!
  22. I've been on a painting tear since ReaperCon. Here's one from last week. Pathfinder's "Iron Gods" Adventure Path crosses over into science fiction, including robots and androids, such as the android priestess Meyanda. Wayne Reynolds painted the cover of the Adventure Path where Meyanda appears: click for link. Bobby Jackson sculpted the character. I like what he did with this delicate sculpt. I decided to give her a sci-fi-styled base, not my usual rock/grass/leaf palette. I started with a piece of plasticard shaped like square floor-tiles, gouged out some scratches, and added some debris (a robotic "piston" of two brass rods, a "cable" of brass wire, and a few chunks of rubble that I carved from the plasticard). Enjoy, Derek
  23. I've been on a painting tear since ReaperCon. Here's another, from last week. Pathfinder's "Wrath of the Righteous" Adventure Path features some especially nasty villains, including Xanthir Vang, a wizard who used to be human but is now a colony of worms with a hive-mind (a "worm-that-walks"). Wayne Reynolds painted the cover of the Adventure Path where Xanthir Vang appears: click for link. I sculpted the figure last year. This more active pose shows off his magical ability as a "blackfire adept". Among my favorite parts of the figure are his wriggling worm fingers. The fire effect has a few rough-draft layers under this one -- darker, drabber, more purple, stronger green, etc. Truly black/gray fire just wasn't interesting on the miniature. I sculpted a few worms on the stock figure, crawling out of the sleeves and through holes in the back, and I sculpted a few more on the base for this version. Here's a close-up of the extra worms on the front. Enjoy, Derek
  24. I speed painted Aglanda while helping my son's girlfriend paint her first mini.
  25. Rivani iconic psychic

    *Insert shameless self promotion here* I just finished this months long project and I think it is my best mino to date. I don't have a fancy photo set up yet so forgive the lowbrow photos. This was my first attempt at textured fabric and dark skin tones. If you have any constructive criticism I am happy to hear it.
