  1. I will paint and create a Reptilian Army pure for fun. It will consists of many different kind of Reptiles and Amphibians. Mostly Snakemen, Lizardmen, Frogmen, Dragonmen, Turtlemen, Fishmen, Dinosaurs and Insects. I will happily include any monster I think will fit. Khanjira will be the centrepiece at some sort as the Living Lizard God. I do not play any games, so this will be pure for my own and (I hope your) fun to create. EDIT: The above was my original plan, over time and thanks to the comments made by other Forumites, this has developed into a story. This resulted in more Factions I wanted to build and paint, so this Project now also includes Pirates, Conquistadores, Native Warriors based on Inca/Aztec/Maya cultures. EDIT: And now it will also include Undead! *********** Captain Luigiano and his army had been travelling through the jungle for weeks now. The sunlight was blocked by the dense canopy of trees. Some of the men had contracted fever, and those darn mosquitos were a big nuisance! He looked at the golden plaque he had obtained. Gold, with a snakeman made out of gems on it. With this he had convinced the men to follow him. Somewhere in this accursed jungle there was a city made of gold, he was sure of it. They would conquer this city and become rich beyond belief. He looked at his army, they even had a few cannons. Nothing would stop them! Finally they reached a clearance. The men were pleased, at least they could see the sun again. They took a rest and a drink, tended to the sick. Suddenly they heard a loud roar from the other side of the clearing. Birds flew away, trees where falling! Some poison darts flew and two soldiers fell, they died before they hit the ground. A loud roar and an enormous terrifying Lizard appeared. One soldier died out of fear from just looking at it. Then the Reptilian Horde emerged from the Jungle. **************************
  2. This miniature is 15503C Nyamaunir Piratin, a catgirl pirate from Das Schwarze Auge (The Dark Eye, Germany's 1980s answer to Dungeons and Dragons). She's a little Old School and a little short even for that. I like that she looks like a cat who is a person in sensible pirating clothes. There was a WIP thread, but it didn't get very far.
  3. This one was an impulse buy about a month ago at a local gaming shop. For some reason I couldn't leave the pirate captain behind and after some detail work he's ready to sail the high seas.. probably.

    03623: Finaela, Female Pirate

    I've finally found time and finished painting this one. It's a great model and I enjoyed painting it. It will be used as a pc (half-elf swashbuckler) by my sister in our current dnd campaign. :D

    03903: The Dark Maiden

    I received this amazing mini from a friend as a birthday gift, so I was extra motivated to give it a lot of work. That's the Patrick Keith version, bigger than Chaz Elliot's one: a great wingspan, somber looking. I've seen several paint jobs here to get some inspiration. Many people decided to go full with the spectral theme; blue lights, blue eyes. IMO, although it looked great, the overall impression wasn't enough that of an angel of the depths made with driftwood, but something newer and too colorful for what I was thinking. So instead I went with a very dry palette: just black, brown, grey and rusty metals. I wanted to convey it as if its driftwood dried for days in the sun of some beach, just to be driven back to the seas, and to the beach again, on a neverending cycle. Worn wood, sundried, rotten, thorn; old wood, tired, greyish thanks to the salt and the wind. I couldn't capture it on the photos but the only spark of color is on its eyes: a ghoulish green reminiscent of its spectral nature. Overall it actually looks pretty basic, simpler than these other works you can find on google, but... I'm happy with the outcome. BTW lately I've been invested on my instagram account: it's only for miniature painting works. I would love if you people give me a follow, and feedback :D it's @albertnyarla

    Travel Painting

    I brought my travel paint kit along for Christmas, along with a miscellaneous selection of figures to paint. I finished off a Ghost Archipelago crewwoman and a couple of Stonehaven figures this morning:
  7. Greetings! I had initially decided to paint Mariel's dresscoat in red & white but I'm glad I changed my mind & went for blue & yellow instead. I don't often paint yellow so I'm pleased how this worked out. Thanks for looking!!

    77134: Hajad

    Finished the last mini from the LTP Layer up kit. I'm happy with how h turned out and learned a lot about where to place highlights. Now just have to transfer that to other minis. and here are all the mini's from the kit in order of painted. Best face still goes to Ingred, but Hajad has better skin, Anirion is probably the weakest paint job of the 3 but still looks good
  9. I also got the Layer Up! LTP kit back in December - Here is the first figure from that set - the pirate. Once again, I followed the booklet, took pics, and then added a couple of touches. I really enjoyed painting him and he is seeing use on the table - although as a dessert nomad ranger rather than pirate! I'm still a very impatient user of layers though.... This figure also inspired me to buy some water effects to play with in the future...

    77131 Fineala, Half Elf Pirate

    This is the second time I've painted Fineala. She's being gifted to my friend Riley who seems to be her living counterpart. Her base is a combination of Blond Shadow, Blond Hair, and Brown Wash. It's the first time I've used that for wood and it gives a nice laminated effect that matches the floor of the resturant.

    02645: Maria Roseblade - Savage Tide NPC

    I very rarely bother to do Show Offs of my work, partially because getting good pictures is a hassle and partially because my painting isn't all that amazing. But I'm trying to put together a collection of useful miniatures for the Savage Tide adventure path and this was one of the things I painted for it. It's supposed to be Harliss Javell, but I got a little carried away before I realized that she is not a recurring NPC. In the end I decided that I'd already spent way too much time on a single piece so any awesome reflections you see are likely the result of real light and are not paint. (The photos are actually a little bright, but I figured that was better than too dark.) I'm not going to give away too much description of the character since @Wise Kraken and @GodOfCheese are both players, but she's an imposing ship's captain of unknown reputation.
  12. Glitterwolf proudly presents Kabuki's Bonny Ann Pirate Queen Bust. WIP here for those interested http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/77677-bonny-ann-pirate-queen-bust-by-glitterwolf/&page=8 She comes with different options. One fully clothed with hat and bustier and one topless. The Macaw was also optional. Here is the Hatless and NUDE version, LINKED: https://postimg.cc/image/g88jq3h45/ https://postimg.cc/image/6axix24dh/ https://postimg.cc/image/a7aut127p/ https://postimg.cc/image/z0ketp0np/ The safe back and mug shot: Here is the Clothed version with all options.
  13. A while ago I had a poll to vote which bust I would paint next. This was the winner. So we better get started ( ok I'm also painting my Brutus Bust but she was first) She has many options, ( with or without hat, with or without a parrot, and with a shirt or topless) I'm going for full options. Trying to make the shirt somewhat sheer. OMG...I never done that! Wish me luck!
  14. These are the set BFM MLS003 from Bad Squiddo, which I have discovered is called "Vampire Thralls", although in my notes I call them "feral vampires" and I think of them as more unaffiliated vampire pirates or swashbucklers. (Although thinking about it, it would be really difficult to be a vampire pirate, what with the total lack of shade and all.) I painted one of them up blonde, because blonde vampires look extra creepy. There is a WIP thread here. As ever, comments, critiques, and questions are welcome.
  15. I'm painting Barnabus Frost, Pirate Captain, and came across an odd situation. On his left side, possibly hanging from his belt, there is an approximately trapezoidal shape that has three tassels hanging from it. I've seen things like it before, being an SCA member and fairly familiar with historical clothing, but I have no idea what it's called or if it serves any use beyond decoration. I searched Google images, but that was no help. Does anyone know what this could possibly be? For your reference, here is the best picture I could locate of the item: Most people seem to paint it the same color as his coat, but I like to be as accurate as I can in my painting and would like more information on this interesting object.
  16. Howdy, Sorry, I'm fresh out of waffles... You gotta ask yourself one question - Do I feel plucky?, Kev!

    77134: Hajad the Pirate (LTPK part 3)

    The third and final mini from the Layer Up! LTPK, Julie Guthrie’s Hajad the Pirate: Not gonna try for any better images, because then you would see how badly I messed up the eyes... Mostly by the book, but I skipped the lining as my little brush was becoming temperamental. Of the three minis in this kit, this is the one I was most looking forward to, as it has the most exposed skin of the three (one of my problem areas). Think I oversold the abs a bit too much though. Based on issues with the previous minis, I elected to basecoat both weapon blades with Ebony Flesh before applying the metallic. The Filigree Silver included in the kit was too watery to play nice with bare Bonesium, and in any case it was difficult for me to see where the paint actually stuck. Plus, it makes lighter metallics pop. It was nice to see darker flesh tones included in this kit. The darkest (non-dark elf) skin tone I had available before was Tanned Skin, but my attempts to mix in darker paints always resulted in a weird shade of sadness. All in all, this kit was a good learning experience. The instructions were clear and easy to follow, and it was neat seeing the colors build up with each layer. The cartoons were cute too. I just hope that my technique improves moving forward. And that painting eyes gets easier.

    3242 Rozmina, half-orc pirate

    Hello all, so here's a mini I've had literally for years and years, probably around the time she was actually released, but didn't get around to painting her up until finishing her a few nights ago. I worked on her at the same time I did another half-orc, which I still have pending. Anyhow, this is Rozmina, the half-orc pirate #3242, sculpted by Derek Schubert. I fell in love with this figure the moment I saw it, but such as life is, never got around to painting her. Too much love, not enough time. She didn't take too long to paint, the longest thing was trying to figure out her actual color scheme. Didn't know what color two do the three pieces of clothing she has on. Once I got that figured out she moved along pretty quickly. She has big, expressive eyes, and I was getting really close to wanting to put the white reflective dot in there, but chickened out at the last moment. I tried to actually do the "whites" of her eyes as a orangy yellow, but I kind of think it made the eyes get lost a bit in her green colored skin. Anyhow, reasonably happy with how she came out, let me know what you think! Thanks! EDIT: so after looking at the eyes and not being so satisfied with them, I worked on them again a little last night and I still can't seem to get a super good picture of them, but here is a bit of an improvement hopefully: I added a little white dot to each eye (the one on the right hand side turned out better than the left) and tried to create a bit more lining around that eye, and a little less around the other eye. Don't know if that makes a difference or not? Once again, it's always being unsatisfied with one's own work....
  19. This fun little guy is from Bombshell's Kritterkin line and is the first one of them that I have painted. I started him at our paint group last Saturday and finished him up over last few days. I wanted to go for more of a pirate type look than naval officer so I decided to play around with textured leather. It was a challenge keeping all the brown from not looking the same but I am happy with how he turned out.

    60146 Kassata Lewynn

    This is Kassata Lewynn, sculpted by Julie Guthrie. The base is resin, from Celtic Ruins pack BRCE0043, by Scibor Miniatures. I love this sculpt and I love the way she turned out. However, I had a lot of little problems that surprised me when painting her. Somehow I managed to drop her at least five times while working on her. I had to put a sheet of foam under where I was working to prevent further damage. This has not happened to me before, so it was quite frustrating. Each time, there were little white dings in the paint in the middle of spots where I was blending that required multiple layers re-painted to fix the damage. I think I found and fixed most of them. As I was painting her hair, the paint started drying in a completely different way. It started snowing, so maybe it was the change in weather. When I did the brown layer, the paint flowed very smoothly. Part way through painting the first highlight layer, the paint started drying almost immediately. I am using a #3 Raphael 8404, and it would dry out to the point of no paint flowing within a few seconds. None of the usual tricks seemed to work (more thinning, flow aid). It ended up being almost dry brushing, which is why the highlights in her hair look so chalky. I noticed a tiny dark spot on her left collar and thought I had dabbed black paint by mistake. I blended the brown over it several times and it just wouldn't cover over. Then I figured it out -- there was a hole in her collar all the way through to her shoulder. A lot of the paint I was applying to cover what I thought was a spot of dark paint was actually wicking through the collar and coming out on the underside. You can see the dark spot in the top picture right below her chin. It could have been fixed with a spot of glaze but I decided to leave it. Maybe she had a near miss with an arrow at some point. Her face turned out to be exceptionally difficult for me to paint. Her eyes have sculpted texture that I found made it very difficult for me to place the irises. That's why the eye placement looks a little off. Plus, I somehow managed to paint slightly triangular blobs with narrow point upwards instead of circles. That is contributing to her slightly cross-eyed appearance. If I paint this miniature again in future, I will probably try to smooth the surfaces of the eyes to make it easier to make them symmetrical. Her lips also have a shape that I found very challenging. There are cute little dimples at each corner of her mouth which give her a nice smile. I found that if I had the paint thinned enough to paint her lips, the paint was also thin enough to immediately wick into these dimples, which significantly magnified the apparent size of her mouth. I tried repeatedly to paint her lips smoothly, but I had to paint it over and start again each time. I originally started with a less bright red for her lips, keeping in with the overall milder colour scheme, but the darker red didn't flow into the dimples so that's what she has. Correcting this each time had an impact on the blending of the flesh tones on her face, which is why there looks like there is a sharp brush line down the middle of her right cheek. That's where I gave up trying to fix the blending. I think if I did this miniature again, I would paint the shade tone of the flesh colour into the dimples, and then fill them in with glazing medium. That way I might still get the nice smile, but not have to fight with the wicking effect on the lip colour. I also misjudged the overall skin tone. I used the Reaper fair skin triad with a very slight darkening of the fair skin shadow as the darkest shade and brightened the fair skin highlight with white. I think the whole series turned out to be too light and as a result there doesn't appear to be much shape to her face when viewed from a distance. I should have started with a darker shade overall, maybe by adding a mid-range brown to the darkest shade colours for her skin to increase the contrast. I created the gem on her right bracer by filling in the rune shape that was there with glaze. I like the way the gem turned out and the colour, but I shouldn't have outlined the gem shape with black. I think I should probably used the a darker version of the shade colour I used on the bracer, which was a mixture of nightshade purple and bronzed shadow (from the bronzed flesh triad). The gem would have still been nicely framed, but the black is just too stark and didn't turn out very smooth. It might look better if I had been able to make the black margin narrower and rounder. Anyway, if anyone has any feedback to share about this model, I would love to hear it. Thanks, Geoff

    14566 Razig's Revenge - Salty Saber

    The weather has been horrible this weekend, so I have lots of painting time. Here is my next completed miniature for the Jan/Feb RPChallenge. I am running Princes of the Apocalypse for D&D at the moment, so he will be my "Gar Shatterkeel". Geoff
  22. This is Marshalla Sylvie from Freebooter Miniatures. In my Lost World she is Bonita, Half Pirate / Half Snake. I gave painted her base as if she was on driftwood in the water. Had fun with the Snake part and tried a little sheer on her blouse. WIP and Lost World Stories here http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=103 Enjoy:
  23. Hello all. I failed to keep up with the WIP due to rushing to completion. This was my Reaper entry and he received a solid bronze. I'm quite proud of two parts of the figure: 1) The freehand tattoo on his back, it was my first attempt at freehand. ^.^ 2) The water portion of the plinth because I borrowed two blue's from @Mr Melons (thanks!) and set about mixing and painting on the plinth with a completion time of under 10 minutes. ^.^ I will summarize to the best of my abilities, the information I have garnered from judges and several artists I have spoken with. For now, I present Stieg. He was a wonderful figure to paint and very fun. Summary behind the spoiler:
  24. Was attempting tattoos and didn't like the mess I made. I started over by dunking in simple green (regretting that decision). Attempt #2! I should document my progress, this should help push me. Using grey primer because I can't find my white primer. 09299: MSP Core Colors: Grey Primer
