  1. Another wip, this time is alastriel the sorcerer, i wanted to give her a dark elf look, and now feels like im gonna explode trying to paint the hair
  2. Hello! I picked up the Bones version of Corim the Kestrel, Gnome Sorcerer at Origins, and his nose is flattened compared to photos of the metal version. I have found one photo of another Corim and it looks like his nose is squashed in that one, too. I'm assuming this is a casting flaw, and not an intentional feature. Do all of the Bones version of Corim have a squashed shnozz? I know the days of gnomes with enormous noses are well past, but poor Corim should have at least some nose to speak of.
  3. So.... have you ever started something you thought looked cool as hell... then way into it you just go "$&@% balls!!!"? Kinda what i'm feelin for this piece. Its my third and for a d&d campaign. its basically supposed to be a dark elf sorcerrer but since my elf wizard mini I had on hand at the time was ... well defective on arrival. I figured it was close enough and i'd swap him in (hence my attempt at a fire sword to give any indication of the fire heavy wizard i actually am playing). I primed in dark grey which is what i had at the time. (wish i'd waited for black for this color scheme) found out gun metal sucks on grey... first "meh". Wanted the red to be a bit more catchy so mixed it with metallic silver....wasnt using wet palette at begining so the paint frequently dried and subsequent batches werent always same...so now I almost get the feel this guys going glam..... second "Meh". Other player uses an elf but a ranger, I wanted this guy a paler tone but it just seems to close to the hair I'd done.... third "MEH". At this point i dont think I even like the model really. Think I was rushing to make the weekend dead line to have the three minis done with this being the last one.... any thoughts to possibly save this one from the green bath of shame? (at this point I'd rather play one of my spiders)
  4. Meet Hatholda Stormforge, a firery wild magic sorceror with lots of charisma to spare! I had a hard time finding a mini for my D&D game but I think she looks like a sorc in these colors.
  5. Here is the Dragonborn Sorceress from Oathsworn Miniatures for "Heroines in Sensible Shoes" Kickstarter as Mutilated, I mean Painted by me. I tried to make a kind of Burn Scar Effect and Failed dismally I admit. I do like how the Torch Flame came out though. And now that I think on it, I should have posted this in the Work in Progress section, too. GF
  6. Yes, Jafar has an evil twin. He decided that "phenomenal cosmic power but itty bitty living space" wasn't his thing so he decided to go a different route to achieve his fame and fortune. His name is Aziz and he has been working on ways to call forth the dead. I am running an Egyptian based Earthdawn game and realized I paint lots of pretty girls and hardly have any guys (good or bad) even though I do buy males. So, for the past couple weeks I have been working on all male figures - mummies, merchants, a cat...hey, it's a boy cat!, and Aziz. Now I am trying to get everything on bases. So, I had considered putting Aziz on a desert base or a temple floor base but I didn't have what I was looking for so went searching through a friend's box of goodies. He tossed me this base and said "Here ya go, make it lava." Well, I didn't "see" lava when I looked at him but thought I could do something to match the green of the flame coming from the skull. I then had the idea of a hand reaching out of the....goo?....slime?....stuff? So, we started digging through the rest of his stuff and found some arms and heads (also bodies but I didn't want the whole thing) so I chose what I wanted and went to work on his base. I also used Chaoswolf's tutorial on making stringy blood to make dripping goo off the zombie guy's hand. Pretty pleased with how it turned out! As for the pictures, the green is bright (Valejo Fluorescent Green) but not quite as bright as the pictures make it look. In the base there is actually some yellow and white swirled in and then I mixed some green ink with realistic water and poured that over everything. You can't really see any of the details in the photos. I might try different photos with lights angled differently or something. Anyway, here he is! Questions, comments, critiques welcome and encouraged!
  7. Special Edition miniature (ReaperCon 2015), sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I was honestly not a huge fan of the sculpt, but I felt like it would be a good fit for what my partner wanted. There are lots of wavy cloth bits to paint, which are always fun. In the end, I was actually kind of sad to let her go, and I might have to reuse this color scheme in the future. The base of the blue is MSP Bones HD Tropical Blue, and the green is PP Poison Green up to MSP Moth Green. Originally painted for the Summer Miniature Exchange, but my partner disappeared and I never heard whether she arrived.
  8. This is the model I intend on using for "Rosubian" the sorcerer for my Song of Blades and Heroes warband. He is so much fun, and I'm very happy with him. The basing is liquitex matte medium (for the lava) which was painted, cork and then Golden Blended fibers for the top of the base.
  9. I have chosen the sorcerer Lamann to be my next victim to splash some paint on. I got to use Reaper's Grey Primer 9299 for the first time. I love it so much over the Vallejo Surface Primer. The Vallejo primer seems kinda watery to me compared to the Reaper primer. Also Vallejo's primer bubbled up on me a lot when I would use it. This is the first of Reaper's primers that I've tried. I have the black and the white and I hope I love them as much as this one. I laid down a few basecoats while at a friend's place Friday and this is as far as I've gotten so far. I used MSP Bones Oceanic Blue 9418 for his robes, MSP Bones Styx Purple 9423 for his tabards (not sure what you call them really), and MSP Woodstain Brown 9160 for the staff. I'm planning on getting the rest of the basecoats down tomorrow. It looks to be a busy weekend so I don't think I'll get much done then.
  10. Zed, the Gnome Bard Extraordinaire! He has the gift of gab,and a quick wit! If he can't talk his way out of trouble, a quick illusion or two, and POOF! he's gone like the wind! This was my first real attempt at OSL. Overall, I think it came out pretty good. Obviously I have some work to do on getting right. However, when I sent the WIP pick to my buddy I was painting it for, he flipped! He thought it was amazing, so I decided to call it. In the picture, I can see where I may have lightened it a little too much. I am still happy with the way he turned out, being my first real attempt at something like this. I hope you enjoy him as much as I did painting him! I give you, Corim Kestrel as ZED THE EXTRAORDINAIRE!! And as always, CC is welcomed and appreciated! CAH
  11. Here is my Balto Burrowell, painted up for a character of mine in Pathfinder. He is a gnome Sorcerer named Pipperton Bubblebrook from Absolom. His closest friend is his familiar, Bucky the badger who was inspired by a honey badger. I'm sorry for the blurry picture, I am still working on my camera foo, and a lightbox. If I take a better picture, I will update it. Pipperton Bucky As always, thanks for looking and I hope you like it! C&C welcome. CAH
  12. I think this is my best yet. What do you guys think.
  13. I was quite inspired by the Kobold Sorcerer in this post. I had this one sitting on my desk, and I thought to myself, "What a great speed paint idea!" So, I set my timer, and set out to create my own Kobold Sorcerer. All in all, I think he came out pretty good for a 1 hour paint job. Granted, I have not completed the base, but as it stands, I think he would be perfectly fine for use on a table. What do you think? Special thanks to Muninn for the inspiration on the piece. Front: Back: CAH
  14. This is my first time posting on the forums, but I've been lurking and admiring the talent and the friendly C&C. I've been painting for a bit, but I'm nowhere near the skill I'd like to be yet, and any advice is welcome. I paint minis for my fellow party members in my Pathfinder games, and this is my most recent. I'm sorry for the low-quality photos, but all I've got right now is my iPhone. This character's player described him as having black hair, green eyes, tan skin, and brown everything else. I like this mini so much, though, that I didn't want to have it look like poop, so I took a lot of time to try to make sure that each brown thing was distinct and interesting. I think I did alright. Without further ado, here is Jimli, newly-dwarven sorcerer.
  15. This is my first Reaper Mini that I have painted to post on the forums. I have recently found the forums here, and am very interested in doing the paint exchanges, but I did want to throw something up so the organizers and other members knew that I can throw some paint on a mini and not have it look like total jank. I am interested to hear what everyone thinks. This was also my first Bones mini that I have done, and did as suggested and not primed it. First coat was a bit tricky but after that everything went pretty typical.
  16. And here is the second miniature SGHawkins09 painted for me for the Summer 2015 exchange. It is 60034 Seoni, Original Version. Also painted in a winter theme to match her earth elemental summoned creature. This figure was in response to my comments about having very few female miniatures painted up, PC or villain. Also, I have a little one who is starting to watch more and more children's movies. So, you may recognize this version of Seoni from a certain cold-themed animated movie! I love these colors, the basing, and above all, the face and eyes are out of this world! I know you'll enjoy her too.
  17. Okay, not entirely done with this one, but nearly there and quite pleased. I included my concept art (which included him having a leg band to hold wooden stakes or potions or something since I didn't think he'd want a bandolier since he's clearly showing off the chest). I still need to touch up the mouth, finish the eyes, and put the shoulder and hip pads on the jacket. I may do some sort of filigree or decoration along the hem as well. The basic idea of this figure is it's a mini for my multiclassed kensai (magus archetype)/master of many styles (monk archetype) hence, monk-mage. He's an aasimar who is quite pompous. He delivers touch spells through his punches, so he's very melee focused. That and the overconfidence lead to the "Come at me" pose he's doing. I'll update when I've finished the last few touches.
  18. Female Sorceress for Hero Quest:
  19. Hey there all, This is my first time painting a miniature; I have always wanted to do it and just never did. So finally a group of my friends and I set up a game of Pathfinder and I needed a mini for my character. This presented the perfect opportunity for me to try my had at painting a miniature. I tried out a few different techniques, layering, drybrushing, oil wash and like the final product. Any constructive criticisms would be appreciated. Cheers all, Will
  20. Here is the first model done for the year. I hope it looks alright. I was having a hard time trying to adjust the base and the colors for the belt, but I think it turned out okay for the most part. I do need to get a dedicated area for taking photos though. might work on that a bit this upcoming weekend if i can.
  21. Continuing to paint my Bones wizards.
  22. One of my bones figures I didn't really want to paint, but then it came out pretty great. That's always the way.
  23. Finished up the month with Bobby Jackson's Satheras, Elf Warlock. This is the metal version. I'll be using him as an NPC in the Pathfinder Game I'm running--Gerinnes Lefelen, an elven wizard who's the de facto ruler of a town and the PC's benefactor . . . for now. Mwah ha ha. I'd had this mini on my to-get list for quite some time, having wanted to paint it since the moment I saw it, but I must confess that once I started getting into it I found the robes a little silly, regarding what's part of what and what's not. I just kind of winged it, in the end, hehe, without being altogether sure how it should go. But it was still pretty fun. Thanks for looking! Comments and criticism are always appreciated.
  24. This is going to be a well traveled miniature as I brought it to paint while on vacation. It is a commission job for a friend to use as his PC in a D&D game. He had bought the miniature already and gave me these directions: "I want the colors to be bronze (he has bronze dragon lineage). Flaming ginger hair. Highlight colors can be gold and purple or red." With this in mind I did a few mock ups to test different combinations and this was the one liked best: So, yeah this will be interesting. He wants the coat to be metallic bronze and I have not attempted to do metallic cloth yet. I was leaning towards a purple coat and bronze vest but it is his mini so he's the boss. I have started to work on him and he did required some clean up as he had a nice big mold line under his arm. I've base coated his hair, a layer of black on the pants, and a layer of skin. I also used a little P3 Flesh Wash and was very pleased with it
  25. more teifling, ahem, hellborn, for my upcoming Wrath of the Righteous campaign. I am working on the two Bones I females next, then onto the Marilith. I also bought the Reaper metal Vulture demon. Then waiting on Bones II for ALL THE DEMONS!!!
