  1. I’ve been in a rut for the last few months not producing or working on anything. Partly too busy over the holidays and partly feeling uninspired. I want to get back into it, so to that end I’m going to do something different and pretty and light-hearted. I present “Fade” from Mirico. She’s a gorgeous bust with very striking details and a lot of room to interpret artistically. I hope you all enjoy the WIP while you follow along and please feel free to offer your comments and critiques!
  2. Another monster for my Lost World Project Project here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/ This is a 15mm miniature from Demonworld, since it is really huge I use it for my 28mm project. That is a Microart Studio resin jungle base 3 x 2 inch! I tried to emulate the metallic sheen that some beetles have on this scorpion. Using different metallics and then some inks and black glazing. Enjoy. Likes and comments welcome,if you want to throw rotten tomatoes, report to the scorpion first for a "talk"

    TURN UNDEAD! - A Winter Exchange

    As I'm sure most of you do in these exchanges, I end up picking parts of the request to focus on. In this case I went with a winter base and OSL. Generally when we think of OSL we think of a mini painted with a zenithal light source and then the OSL is a secondary light source that colors part of the mini. I decided to do something different though and make the OSL my primary light source. Initially I wasn't going to have any secondary lighting, but that made things a bit boring from certain angles so I added in some moonlight. In the scene below the primary light source is the end of the staff. Anything illuminated by the staff I painted "normally," though with the highlights and shadows were orientated to it and not zenithal. Anything not lit by the staff is lit by desaturated "moonlight." For some reason I had difficulty getting the light balance correct on the photos but it's still pretty close. The mini itself. Here we start with normal colors: But as we get to her back the light desaturates until eventually the light source is blocked. Also, a bit of freehand. And a bit of milliput dust on the black base. It wiped off but I didn't redo the photo shoot. From the side you can see how I tried to put all of the highlights towards the staff with deeper shadows further away. The base. So far the battle has not gone well for the undead. I cut two of them apart so they could be caught in the moment of being blown apart. The inner light is a bit subtler on the armored skeleton. The eyes are so deep that you can only see the brightest parts from a very small angle. Now that I think about it I would have been better off to fill the sockets and freehand the surface. Ah well, for next time. : Here's probably the angles where you can really see the desturated vs lit areas best. And the top view. I don't currently have a way to do a light box for this angle on something this size so it is just sitting out on the table. I think these might have turned out the most color accurate though. I used some crackle medium to make the ice, and didn't realize that it did not adhere very well. My first drybrush took some of it off and I had to put it back in place. One thing I couldn't quite decide on was the cast shadows. Normally I just consider the scene to just end like it has been chopped off, but that leaves a gap of vertical snow in some places. Maybe I should have taken them down to the wooden base... I had initially planned on more freehand, but ran out of time. Thanks for looking.
  4. I managed to get my winter exchange piece and gifts to vegascat in time for Christmas. Since he sent me a heartfelt thank you directly and I know she made it I wanted to post up some of the photos I took before mailing her off. I will let vegascat share photos of the gifts if he chooses and just post the painted miniature. I had alot of fun painting her up and quite enjoyed keeping her to a limited palette. I am happy he likes her and that she made it safely during a busy mail time. Here she is on her scenic base alongside the Golem Familiar from 02826. And I wanted to keep her removable in case he wants to use her for gaming. I enjoyed painting her quite a bit I think my favorite part was her skin, I used a bit of purple pink in the shadows which I think shows better in hand and then glazed it with a rosy flesh to help make it a bit warmer while still looking cool overall. I will have to pick her up again and paint one up to keep, she is just too pretty of a sculpt not to.
  5. I finished another recruit for my Lost World Project. This time the Bones Lizardman Warrior sculpted by Ben Siens. WIP is here for those interested: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-army-of-the-lost-world-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures/ He is based on a Resin Jungle Base from Micro Art Studios. I'm less happy with him because of lack of detail in the face area. Big Bones are great and well detailed, some of the smaller can lack some detail. But he will do, He will be a grunt in the army so nothing special. I do like how the shield came out though. Without further ado... Here he is, hope you like the little coldblooded guy.

    End of the Hunt

    END OF THE HUNT She stood overlooking the battlefield below her, finally reaching her objective... the ancient burial site of the most legendary of barbarians... Her scythe gleamed in the sunlight and blood dropped off its keen edge, her mask that she wore to strike even more fear into the hearts of her enemies hid her predatory smile, once the site was excavated she'd be nearly invincible and her enemies would fall before her like wheat... This figure is a commission piece I did for a good friend and client, I was given a lot of leeway on how to paint her up. Really only wanted me to take my artistic liberty and paint it with a feeling of all and a battle that had just happened. So I went to work and got inspired by the skulls I had and that would fit into the scene. I used mostly the same color palette throughout the base and the figure herself. My client was very happy to receive the piece today and I'm leaving it up to them if they want to say who they are. Figure: Mistress of the Hunt Manufacturer: Norsgard Scale: 32mm heroic Material: Metal WIP: None - you can check out my artist page for full WIP pics if you'd like, the link is in my .sig C&C are more than welcomed and greatly appreciated! Thanks for looking!!
  7. I was heavily inspired with Malefactus work and I wanted to paint a Goblin old style and sculpt / add some mushrooms. The Goblin is from Metal Magic ( now OOP). The Mushrooms , some are sculpted ( the larger and the round ones) and the pointy ones are Resin from Ristul's Market. My WIP for those interested. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66981-goblin-with-mushrooms-metal-magic-by-xherman1964/?hl=bagpipe The little guy has just consumed some mushrooms for inspiration on his latest musical creation. I wonder if the other Goblins will like his music. Without further ado, the pics.

    Gourls Paints 77302 Female Paladin

    I painted this up a few days ago. I really like this sculpt! Very heroic. I wanted to get her tabletop ready, and my bedroom lighting did my cell phone photos no favors. I'm still trying to develop that level before I try anything I'd truly want to display. Or a dragon. I have one, but I'm intimidated by it. Anyway! Enjoy this heroic lady admiring her gigantor-sword.
  9. The Sentinel He stood upon the outlook, his grizzled features and single eye looking down upon the massive horde of stinkin' orcs that were arraying against his people. He was one of the elite, the Sentinels of his people. He must warn them before it was too late... Figure: Dwarf Ranger, Alliance of the Bat Manufacturer: Norsgard Material: Metal Shield Modification made ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This figure was for an on-the-side exchange with fellow forum member, robinh. We met up this past Saturday night while he was visiting Vegas for a conference and I asked him for a little inspiration. He gave it to me in the form of something that was fun and modded that he could put on his display shelf. He has a running joke with Jasonator about having orange paint on every figure that he does. I took the opportunity to paint his pants orange. Anyhow, here he is! C&C are always welcomed and appreciated, thanks for looking! P.S. I didn't do a whole WIP of this guy as I was under a time crunch to finish him before meeting up with Robin. I did however take a few pics of the WIP on how I did his shield, before I added the design.

    (02636) Wyvern

    This is the Blacksting Wyvern figure. I'm of two minds about this one. First off, most of the effort went into the basing...which was built up from basla, cork and lots of slate. I wanted a broken mountaintop look, and I think it turned out OK. On the other hand, for the actual figure, I liked everything about the sculpt except the wings. Because of the way they were sculpted, the wings looked very "meaty," not "membranous." In the end I just went with it and painted him like he had a couple of juicy steaks hanging off of his shoulders. LOL. Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  11. Got 2 of this action figure and am working on bases for them. I want to have them on 3" bases, but that's kinda tricky since the toy has a wide stance to rival that old Grenadier frost giant. So the first one will be on an angle. Some styrofoam rocks and sand for the lava. I didn't get pics of all the steps but it's the "Hot Lava Bases" method by Mark Craggs 'Klute' on CMoN. While I like most of the paint enough to leave it Factory, I tore the head off the fig and will try to make the beard look fiery. Second one will be on a level, but more elevated base.
