  1. Just a bunch of Eastern myth themed minis, mostly from Bones III and one Kenku/Tengu Monk from Stonehaven. Oh, and some Myconids from Ganesha Games and Bones III plant monsters. More Mario than myth, I suppose. Oni close-up: Kitsune close-up: I like the male Kitsuine a lot more than I was expecting. His pose, with all its swagger, adds a lot of character. I also hadn't noticed the sake cup he was holding until I started painting.
  2. I may have finished Orctober early this year, but that leaves plenty of time for other Halloween themed minis this year! All spookiness comes from the Bones 3 Kickstarter...actually, I think it's all from the same Crypt Expansion, except for one of the spirits. The full haunting: The Obsidian Crypt: The Graveyard Golem: The Spirits from Beyond: The true evil of the group, the Pumpkin Minions:
  3. The next set out of Bones 3, various monsters! The Carrion Worm really grew on me! The Temple Dragon is really cool. I hadn't even realized until I was inking it that the base was a statue of a robed woman: The Manticore, who I was specifically hoping for before they announced it during the campaign. It's a classic monster I didn't have a mini of! Lastly, the Giant Cobra. Kind of rushed this one along...he also appears to hide from the camera focus.
  4. I thought I'd try to keep a work in progress of the process I'm making in Bones 3. I got distracted/bored during the Death Guard painting, and went back to some of the bones. "Heeey you guuuys!" The Fomorian just called to me. He felt left out when I painted the other Giants, I guess.
  5. Orctober got an early start this year, mostly due to me pouring too much green paint when I was doing the base tones on my Bones III Monsters: First, the actual Orcs! I liked the thematic continuation of the Orcs from Bones 1. Painted with them, and only cousins to the theme of Orctober, come the Hobgoblins! There were a few frustrating details on these sculpts, and some odd undercuts, but their paint scheme stayed relatively simple. I don't use Hobgoblins often; I think the only time they've shown up in anything I've run has been premade adventures where they show up as random henchmen.
  6. So - my next small project - I cannot keep with just one ... errrr. After having a small but nice talk with @SGHawkins09 and being sent home by the doc to cure a sickness I recently picked up, I had to decide what to do next. As all those wonderful and enthusiatic responses to my previous projects (I mean it - I never had so much response in such a short time) made it near to impossible to just sign off from the forums and disappear into the wilderness, I agreed to take on a different plan. I just grabbed into my miniature box and took some figures to paint them and get them done. And then it struck me: I am at the Reaper Forums yet I missed to paint a Reaper miniature. So I picked out ... errr - let me see ... Troll Slayer Sophie! Yay! - hey! Hooooraaay! Who the heck is Troll Slayer Sophie and when did I buy her? It seems I already started to paint her, but then decided otherwise, stripped *chuckles* her and put her away. Hm. Good point to start her all over again. As I chose her to be the figure I wanted to paint next I had to think about the color scheme I wanted to use. Well. I had no idea. I never really cared about fantasy style, so it never meant anything to me. The things I know about are modern or sci fi. I played a lot of Warhammer40k back in the days. I even wrote fanfiction stories which included the Imperial Guard and the Sisters of Battle ... ... Sisters of Battle ... hm. that could make a great colour scheme. Works well with the flesh tones and still contrasts it. And as Sophie is a demon, the demon/witch hunter theme fits her rather perfectly. I'll take it! Well then - primed her and started painting. But I am not sure - do I want to give her skin the grim dark appearance of an Adepta or a more Succubi-like appearance like ... this one: Succubus Suggestions?
  7. It isn't easy being green! Especially when you're green and not an Orc, or a Goblin, or a Troll, or a Gith, or a....wow, there's a lot of green monsters! The Froghemoth: I hadn't even noticed the clutch of eggs until I was inking the base! I'm happy with how they came out...reference photos had frog eggs in the entire rainbow of colors. The Jungle Titan. This guy was a lot of fun to paint. I'm not sure what I'll use him as...maybe just an overgrown Lizard King in D&D 5E. The Weregator. He'll likely be used as a Gatorman heavy for Lizardfolk runs. Last and least, Lizardfolk!
  8. I apparently forgot to add this set, some simple wood terrain from Bones 3 I painted alongside the Giants. They were saved from a sealant malfunction as well, though the simple colors made it easy.
  9. Inhuman. Eternal. Undying. The Guardian of the Maze: The Lord of Death: He Walked with Dragons: Last of his House: The Eternal Hunger: Doomed and Dying: This set was a lot of fun to paint. Sharp detail and simple features. Non-human Undead are always fun and relatively rare in miniature representation. I hope they get a follow-up!
  10. Sneaking into the paint queue was a set of Merrow. As far as I know, these were the first Merrow miniatures actually made. Of course, now 5E Merrow look like evil giant Mermen in the fashion of Warcraft Naga and are getting minis in the next pre-paint set... I wound up with two, as one is a replacement. The fellow with the club was converted, and had arrived with some casting issues on his face and arms. The OG: The remix:
  11. Also known was "Wait, hippos really are purple?" These guys are some of my favorites from Bones III. Sadly, the "Isle of Dread" style game I was running ended long before these arrived, but I was recently reading "Elephantmen", which was a good inspiration to get these done. King Hippo. His skin was already done when, during a paint jam, a buddy pointed out, Hippos are not pure grey. I had to greenstuff back in his necklace, and carve out a nostril that wasn't cast properly. I only noticed mid-paint. And of course the zoom shows the mold lines I thought I got... Obadiah Horn. The simplest one, but I like his stance. Ebony Hide, the Elephant. I went with the obvious Zulu theme for him. I couldn't figure out if his club was meant to be a bone or a wooden knobkerrie, but I went with wood.
  12. I've completed a second batch of miniatures from Bones 3. I'm glad to be done with them, and some may have been a bit rushed; I bit off a bit more than I could chew. The Plague Marines, Cave Goblins, and some random others were all on the table at the same time. First, a group shot: A bundle of terrain, from the Crypt expansion. One wall is not, and was a sample from the ReaperCon swag bag. It just snuck in! Goremaw, the Devourer of paint! I'm so glad I used craft paints on him, I'm not sure how many bottles of purple I would have gone through otherwise. A Halfling Stereotype. You'd see a statue like this in front of any fantasy pizza place. I hadn't noticed that moldline across his chest until I was uploading the photo...yikes! "Hey you guuuys!" I really enjoyed painting this one. I experimented a bit with his skin and tried to match him to the pale tones of the D&D pre-paint Fomorians. He's not quite there, but I like how he came out. Bandit. One of my favorites from the set. "Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt" gave me a new appreciation for the simple thugs that show up in every game. I hadn't realized he was meant to be wearing pants until I was inking him, and saw the patch over the knee. I liked the lesser-dressed look, so I painted it up to be a bloody bandage slapped over the knee instead. Half-Orc Merchant. Not much to be said about him, I just painted him in the style of my Warhammer Empire troops. Lastly, a bunch of Dwarves. Beagle knows it's not a Kickstarter unless it has a Dwarf or two in it.
  13. Just a little something from my Facebook page I thought I'd share here: Four years since I painted my first Bones miniature! Horace "Action" Jackson was one I bummed from a friend who got his Kickstarter delivery earlier than mine and gave a simple paint scheme based off the classic Luke Cage "Power Man" outfit. It feels like it's been a lot longer. I must have over a hundred painted by now...and next month, we have the next Kickstarter! Crazy.
  14. 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)
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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:
  18. 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:
  19. 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:
  20. 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:
  21. 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?
  22. 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)
  23. 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.
  24. 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!
  25. First up of the recently completed works, a trio of Reaper Pygmies
