  1. After almost a year of work, I've finally completed this piece. 2 hours each on the adventurers, about an hour each on the terrain pieces, and close to 6 hours on the dragon itself. A lot of different colors used, so I'm not even going to try to mention them all. The terrain is mostly dry brushed, and washes. The dragon has no dry brushing at all though. Everything else is either layered or blended painting. Thanks for looking! Enjoy! (And yes, that is my YouTube channel in the background. LOL)
  2. Although there was a tragic sealant malfunction, I managed to save the first set of minis I've completed in some time using some tips and tricks...and having a better can of sealant available to fix the foggies. Since I am still running Storm King's Thunder, I thought the first minis from the Kickstarter I would paint should be the Giants of Bones 3. First, we have the whole lot, with Sir Forscale striking a pose. Then, we'll just get frosty: The King: The Queen (clearly the one in charge) A Frost Giant standing guard: A more eager Giant: Then, we heat things up with the Fire Giants! The King says, "That knight went that way!" A Warrior pursues. I removed the spiked ball and chain from his belt...I wasn't a big fan of that look. I left the bases as a decoration. Another Fire Giant guard stands by, in case Forscale returns. The Jailor stands by, awaiting the Knight's return in chains. You may notice the Fire Giant Queen is missing...I thought she was too similar to the original, and wanted to convert her to a more active pose, since Bones are so much easier to cut. She's been set aside for now. Overall, I think the recovery process from the sealer foggies went well. Looking at the photos, the process de-flocked their bases more than anything, which I'll fix. Eventually.
  3. Another conversion, this time a Gnome Bard from Reaper's "Balto Burrowell". This is to represent one of the player characters in my "Storm King's Thunder" campaign.
  4. This time, we have a themed group. I wanted to added some more members to my Arabian Nights themed forces, with intent to use them for RPG encounters and a Frostgrave warband. Last time it was mostly Reaper's "Legends of the Sands" boxed set, this time it's a variety of sources. The group: "Nabin, Desert Ranger" by Reaper: "Rasia, Bladedancer" by Reaper: "Watchers of Karna" from GW's LotR line: "Revolting Peasant" by West Wind Wargames Foundry: "Corsairs of Umbar" from GW's LotR line: And unrelated to the theme except for being found in the frozen city of Frostgrave, an Ice Toad from a D&D Giant Frog:
  5. After a recent attempt at a one-shot with premade characters, I realized I didn't have any painted Elf Wizards. Such an iconic combo to not have! So I fixed that:
  6. Yet another of my impulse buys from Reaper Miniatures, I recently finished Reaper's "Jack and the Beanstalk" boxed set, plus a duo of back-up for our beleaguered Giant. They'll certainly be useful in "Storm King's Thunder", so I may actually have a purpose for this! Be nimble, young Jack! What's this you run from? A nest? Perhaps they're gold on the inside (this way they're useful for a few more scenarios) Ah, that's how you got up this high: What's that coming after you? The sound of thunder... Close up, our pursuer reminds me of Trevor Philips of GTA V: Ah, Cyclopean back-up from the West Winds, borrowing a spare head from our first Giant: Another cold-blooded comrade joins our Giants in the chase for young Jack: The young Jack seems woefully outnumbered and outsized: Ah, but to the rescue comes Sir Forscale, demonstrating that bigness is no match against scale shots:
  7. The source of my recent Noble Knight impulse spree, I'd been looking to complete a set of Arabian Nights style adventurers for encounters and skirmish games such as Frostgrave. Reaper's "Legends of the Sands" boxed set seemed perfect, and Noble Knight had it both in stock and on sale. A perfect time. You may notice the set is incomplete; I already had the Jafar type sorcerer painted from a solo purchase, didn't care much for one of the Warlord pieces, and grew frustrated with the Assassin and set him aside. There's also a few Thugs who come as back-up from West Wind...they'd been in the collection for years and fit the theme. The party as a whole: The Sheik: The Garishly Garbed Guard: The Colossus: The Pirate: The Wise Man: The Thief of Thieves: The Princess: The trio of Thugs, via West Wind:
  8. So, when I get both a sale notice and a back-in-stock notice at the same time, I get weak: At least the back three are appropriate for the upcoming "Storm King's Thunder" campaign, right?
  9. A trio of powerful Undead from Reaper, finished up with some other Undead encounters intended for Frostgrave games. The group: The Lich King (Barrow Warden Mystic) The Giant Skeleton (or should it be Skeleton Giant) And the Colossal Skeleton, so powerful he's busted through the dungeon ceiling (or backdrop, at least)
  10. Even though the Isle of Dread game I had been running died a premature death this summer, it's never too early to paint minis for its return, right? The group: Jaatu, a Reaper Miniatures piece I've had in progress since release in 2003, apparetnly. It's good to finally wrap up a mini after 13 years... A Tribal Champion (possibly from Chronopia, I got him with a broken weapon from a trade) And a group of Menehune, from Paymaster Games "Going Native" series: I tried to give the Menehune some traditional tattoos, then kind of gave up. I'm definitely getting a Micron marker before I try to do any tattoowork again.
  11. A recently finished piece that stands on her own, I picked up Kulgara during Free RPG Day. She's a great mini and a fun encounter in "Iron Gods"...one day I may even run it to get a use for her in a game!
  12. First up of the recently completed works, a trio of Reaper Pygmies
  13. The last trio of my recent paintworks, a bunch of NPC types who would fit around an inn of ill repute. First, we have the Serving Girl from the Reaper Swine Prince set: Then, a Greek civilian from Foundry: And last, a Dwarf barmaid, who I believe was manufactured by Fenryll. It was bought in a pack of other female Dwarves at a convention many moons ago. And the group:
  14. Another pair of recently finished works, though photographed through the same techniques that I probably won't re-use as the Elves, are a pair of Barbarians. Kord the Destroyer from Bones, attempting to capture the feel of the Diablo III Barbarian design: And a rather familiar looking Barbarian from Hasslefree:
  15. The first of many to soon be posted, a very Conanesque Barbarian, Traeg. He's a Reaper piece, but years of being kept in a box underneath a bed lead to a hand transplant (from a Dwarf Wars Nordvolk, if memory serves)
  16. A duo of Genies, "Efreeti Emir" and "Naseer, Genie of Hakir":
  17. Just finished this Warg (Reaper SKU 77202) to be used by our party druid when he shape changes into a Dire Wolf, I modded on the spikes with copper wire as studs and then used ProCreate to sculpt them on. For me, this is just a quick Tabletop+ figure that I enjoyed doing and it'll allow us to have another large wolf miniature at the table when we need it. WIP found here. Anyhow, C&C are welcomed and appreciated, thanks for looking!
  18. Today, I'm working on another animal form for the Druid PC in my D&D group. I pulled out the bones Warg (77202) from my collection and added some spikes to his back in order to get him to look like a Dire Wolf. Anyhow, here's the progress so far today, I'll add more pics as I continue one. Not as many as I usually do for my WIP as I'm trying to zip through it. I do have a fun little thing to add to the base towards the end.
  19. I was inspired by the arrival of the Krackatoans from Dragon Bait, and decided to paint up a bunch of related sea folk. Almost all are from Bones, except the Spikeshells, who are the metal incarnation. A knot of Squogs: The Toad Demon: The Tiik Baron: The Sea Hag, with greenstuff-mended Squiddy (I thought he was a blob of miscast and then I saw a painted version...after I had sliced his head off...) The Spikeshells (in metal): Kelpies, (links for Barbie-like NSFW nudity) https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpl1/t31.0-8/12764326_10153308168255636_8677607774558033853_o.jpg https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpl1/t31.0-8/12764568_10153308168265636_5435427177767942254_o.jpg Mab Grindylow (again linked for nekkid) https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xtp1/v/t1.0-9/12743713_10153308168850636_8999898210468005567_n.jpg?oh=420f356e9604c94aae39d16c69c6c1d6&oe=575AB32F https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xtp1/v/t1.0-9/12745464_10153308168855636_98530089735032765_n.jpg?oh=c1939b3e26e25550c4587ab79ebdfbc7&oe=5766DC4A
  20. So here I am, playing a point and click adventure game from Artifex Mundi on my Kindle, ("Deadly Puzzles: Toymaker"), and someone familiar popped up in the background: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/viking/latest/03385 I think they overestimated the size of the Bryangles, though.
  21. Wait, D&D doesn't stand for Demons, Demons, and More Demons: The Party's Screwed? Two lovely to paint fellows from Bones 2 were finished last night, the Fire Demon/Balor and the Minotaur Demon Lord. I tried to do both up to also fit in a Khorne demon army.
  22. Just in time for Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING to invade the world, we have some Pumpkin Horrors. Sadly, Rotpatch, my favorite of this theme, keeps being sold out whenever I pick up minis recently. Perhaps by Halloween he will join the harvest (of HORROR!)
  23. Those nasty critters from underground who may die of exhaustion during a charge, here comes the Kobolds: The grunts are converted from the multi-pack, Champion Floppymace and the Sorcerer are as-is:
  24. I just finished up on this one, I did it as a small commission and favor for one of my D&D buddies who will use this particular figure for his Tuesday night games. Slight modification with a weapon head swap from the original earth breaker to the axe head. Painted it up in about 5-6 hours today, I call it table top+ as there are some things on here beyond a normal tabletop job and I wanted to get it done fairly quickly. Name: Shoanti Barbarian Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures SKU: 60115 Sculpted by: Gene Van Horne Material: Metal WIP Thread C&C are welcomed and appreciated! His face close-up, it's hideous!
  25. Today, I'm going to try to get this guy painted up. I have the entire day/evening to do so and I need to get it done before Saturday so I can give it to one of my D&D buddies who is going to use it as a PC in another game (a small commission and I'm giving him a discount as a friend). He's requested it be a bit above tabletop with a weapon swap (so Tabletop+ is what I'm going for). I want to try to get it painted all up in 4-5 hours. Name: Shoanti Barbarian Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures SKU: 60115 Sculpted by: Gene Van Horne I've already got him on his base, primed up, and weapon converted over from his big Earth Breaker to a big 2-handed Axe. I already have about 30-45 minutes into him for the prepping, weapon swap, priming, and basing. Images are pretty big, so I'm spoilering them. I'm going to quickly prime the base and let it dry while I grab some lunch, then I'm going to get to work on him in ernest.
