  1. Darth Sana She stared at her adversary with cool and calm calculation, the Jedi was nervous... she saw the fear in his eyes, yes... GOOOOOOD.... fear would cause him to make mistakes.. she'd cut him down with her force-imbued katana and notch another Jedi scum on her belt... She snarled at him, "Come and die, you fight the Sith Mistress!" ---------------------------------------------------- Manufacturer: White Wolf Miniatures 3 parts: Head, body, Sword. Scale: 70mm high Sculptor: Juan Puerta Casting: Sago This was a labor of love and fun for me, I decided as soon as I saw this beautiful bust that I was going to paint her up as 'evil' and the paint scheme that called to me was to paint her up to look like Darth Maul, I added the horns with copper wire and then sculpted them on with ProCreate. Towards the end of the project, I was trying to decide how to display her and it came to me that I wanted to make her part of a story, give her a bit more of the Star Wars tie-in with a completely scratch-built Tie Fighter. The title placards on the sides were designed by my good friend @Thrym and I printed them off on cardstock and glued them onto the plasticard sides of the tie fighter. The scabbard is my attempt at a sort of force rune, it is Kanji which translates into "Sith Mistress." WIP can be found here: Without further ado, I present (Darth) Sana from White Wolf Miniatures! Thanks for looking (and following along), C&C are welcomed and greatly appreciated!
  2. My good friends over at White Wolf Miniatures sent me Sana as a gift, she's an amazingly clean resin sculpt of a female samurai. As soon as I saw her I knew how I wanted to paint her up. I'm going with a Darth Maul color scheme with red and black and I'll freehand the sith symbol somewhere on her armor. I'll elicit your comments and critiques as I paint her up. Right now I have her washed, prepped, and ready to get primed. As you can see she's nearly 80mm tall.
  3. Here is another figure from Imperial Assault Core Game, by Fantasy Flight Games. Darth Vader. At once simple but difficult. Trying to achieve dull black and shiny black on the same figure was not easy. I followed Sorastro's guides, but with Reaper Paint. I think this was the first figure I broke out my then newly acquired Citadel shades for the OSL. The black was Black with varying amounts of Snow Shadow for highlights, and then a small dab of a Reaper Sample that is somewhere between ghost white and snow shadow. The camera flash definitely grayed it up, but when I took the pics with just the light box, it was too dark. It has some gloss varnish on the helmet and shoulder armor. Let me know what you think. Thanks for looking.
  4. Well, everyone. Arc724 made the following comment in his guidelines for his exchange mini: "I'm starting a Star Wars RPG Campaign, so if you can paint me a Sith or Jedi, you'd have a new friend forever." Challenge Accepted... As soon as I saw this figure years ago I thought "He'd make a great Sith." Now I had the chance to prove it. I call him Bel'Rheol. That was a jumble of the letters in Hellbore (which is the only name on the blister card). He has a weird spiral hat, so I Ret-Conned that to make him a Twi'Lek. In reading on the Wookieepedia, I came across a Headmistress at a Sith Assassin Academy named Darth Traya who was pale with black eyes from "seeing with the force." I used that idea. I originally envisioned short sabers (Shoto) like dagger length, but they ended up like long short-swords. I modified his toes to be less "Jester-Like" and more Sci-Fi acceptable, with little green stuff soles. He is on a Secret Weapon 30mm Tau Ceti base. The shoto are sewing needles. (see WIP when done). I'll get into colors, thoughts and ideas more in the WIP, which it looks like will be later since I just got paged to go in to work... WIP http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63010-02782-warl-hellbore-assassin-wip-for-summer-2015-exchange/ Fiction: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63011-from-the-personal-holocron-of-master-bel%E2%80%99rheol-force-assassin/ Enjoy!
  5. OK everyone. Not sure how best to post WIP after the fact. So, I'm going to post a few pictures at a time. I was paired to paint for Arc724 in the Summer 2015 Exchange. This was my first time, and his. Here's the link to the Show Off. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63001-02782-warl-hellbore-assassin-exchange-mini-for-2015-summer/ And here is the Fiction: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63011-from-the-personal-holocron-of-master-bel’rheol-force-assassin/ Here are the starting supplies: A few angles of the mini. The base is a 30mm Tau-Ceti base from Secret Weapon. The Shoto (Short Sabers) are sewing needles I picked up at Hobby Lobby.
  6. Show off related to this piece: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63001-02782-warl-hellbore-assassin-exchange-mini-for-2015-summer/ WIP related to this piece: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63010-02782-warl-hellbore-assassin-wip-for-summer-2015-exchange/ From the Personal Holocron of Master Bel’Rheol, Force Assassin Transcripts of His Address to the Grey Brotherhood on Ziost …to do so, you must release yourself from the hold the galaxy has on you: My parents should have known I would be their undoing. The archivists told me that an albino Twi’Lek born to two red Lethan Twi’Leks was a one-in-a-million birth. Everyone was right to see it as a bad omen. My parents should have disposed of me as a babe. I severed my ties to this galaxy by severing their heads. You will be called upon to do this too, initiates. You must cut ties with your prior lives, and you must cut deeply. You will learn quickly, initiates, that you are entering into a legacy at the very core of the persistence of the universe. We are not Sith. We are not Jedi. We are the force-wielding agents of the balance. Law? Chaos? Good? Evil? These are all the abstractions of the inhabitants of the universe: Men and women with goals and agendas. The balance cares nothing for their goals. So, although we are often called on to assassinate Jedi, we have also assassinated Sith for as long as our brotherhood has survived. We are truly neutral, intent on making sure the scales of power never shift too far in one direction, and in doing so, we make sure the galaxy will endure. We have pursued this goal since our betrayal on Malachor V all those years ago. I remember it vaguely, because a piece of my will was there. You will learn these secrets, young ones. At the height of your power, you can absorb some of the life essence and will of those you defeat. In doing so, your knowledge grows by countless bounds. We have also mastered the techniques of force-siphoning: You will have no fear in battle, as the stronger your enemy is, the stronger you become by drawing out and draining their power to bolster yourselves. Jedi may be content with turning into a blue ghost upon their death, but we endure. Slain Sith haunt isolated caves. With training, you can impose your mind and will into your destroyer. If you overpower them, your mind lives on in their body. Masters have done this for centuries and millennia, living on undetected and with borrowed memories from the poor souls they possessed. Don’t become overconfident. Know your place: Five Grey Brotherhoods on ancient Sith worlds, each with a Master, two apprentices, four adepts, eight novices, and sixteen initiates. We have been hidden here on Ziost for millennia. Sith and Jedi have scoured this planet for trinkets and baubles, but we remain hidden. This concealment is your greatest defense. With patience, you can hide yourselves in many ways: For the gullible, we borrow the “mind trick†of the Jedi to fool someone into seeing us differently. I might appear not as an albino Twi’lek, but as a wookiee. This little trick won’t fool more force-savvy opponents. To do so requires first masking your ability with the force: Force Concealment. Clever Sith have done this throughout time to hide in plain sight. You will also be taught to use the force camouflage and force invisibility to disappear completely; not with some hocus pocus potion like those witches on Dathomir or a primitive stealth-field-generator. No, your mastery of the force will allow you to walk next to someone unseen, unheard, unfelt, and unheeded. The force will also be your guide. Many of you are gawking at my grey eyes. When you reach out with the force over and over, you eventually see and hear the galaxy so clearly that you don’t need to use your eyes. With time, your eyes will cloud over: Jedi eyes turn white, Sith eyes turn black, and ours turn grey. Because of our mastery of stealth, we don’t use full length lightsabers. We use shoto. These versatile weapons allow us to capitalize on our dexterity rather than brute strength. They can be adjusted in length from fifteen to sixty centimeters. When shorter, they make excellent thrown weapons. When wielded in pairs, our Jar’Kai style of Ataru (Form IV) is nearly unstoppable. The quick leaping strikes, augmented by the force, are difficult to anticipate. One shoto can be thrown while the other defends. One can be deactivated and reactivated while the other traps your foes lightsaber in the vicious Pass the Blade attack. Using the Shoto-Swarm, you can quickly unbalance and confuse your enemy. Trispzest allows you to force back many foes while leaping to safety. All of this is fine, but the best strategy is to sneak up behind your target, and only activate your shoto once the emitters are within an inch of their neck. That way, their reaction to the sound of activation will be too late. The blades are already driven into their skull-base. Once again, welcome initiates. Study hard. Practice often. Respect your superiors. And above all, maintain vigilant secrecy. Only with anonymity may we continue to do the will of the universe to maintain balance.
  7. Battle of the Sith Diorama Project Figures: Zargun, Assassin from Guild of Harmony with Karick-Dar's right hand and Darth Vader from West End Games Star Wars Miniatures Since this is a Sci-fi entry and I'm going to go pretty in-depth with my work here, I decided that it needs its own WIP thread. First off is the theme for my little diorama, it is going to be Darth Vader vs his upstart apprentice (Darth Malice). Here are the primed figures. I found a window to the Emperor's Throne Room on the Deathstar and resized it to be the right size for this scale. After cutting out the picture's windows over plasticard, I then used a pen and traced in the areas which I'll need to cut out with a sharp hobby knife. This is where I'm at right now as I'm writing this. The plan is going to be to get the windows cut out, then find some thicker clear plastic to put behind the plasticard as well as a small picture of some Empire ships and stars. I will also construct the throne itself to go before the window such as this: As I go through, I'd appreciate comments and critiques to try to get it looking really good for the competition here. Thanks!
  8. This is a diorama I created. Last year, I got to talk to Jeff Grace (he's responsible for a lot of great minis from Dark Sword, Privateer Press, Reaper and others). We talked a little bit about how easy it would be to make some of his Dark Sword minis into Star Wars characters, and how cool it would be if someone made a diorama of a dueling Jedi and Sith and entered it into the painting competition. Naturally, I agreed that such a thing should happen. I'm not totally sure that he meant it as a challenge. I think sometimes people get surprised when I run away with an idea like this. But here is the result. It received an honorable mention in the Masterclass competition. I have posted this to Coolmini for anyone who cares to vote.
