  1. I've had a lot of fun this august painting a bunch of miniatures. The first of them is that gorgeous sculpt from Darksword miniatures. Their figures have that old school fantasy look that it's really enjoyable, and a pleasure to paint. I love the character Medea, from Greek Mythology: my first idea was to copy the Medea on "Medea and Jason" from Pre-Raphaelite artist John William Waterhouse: but then I realized I've been using a red palette too much lately, so I changed to an orange-yellow one I've been wanting to try since I painted Ariel's wings. Since I've also abandoned the freehand arabesque I planned to paint and gived her a tan, the resemblance to what had to be is near to zero right now... Ultimately I'm happy with it, although I may have overhighlighted it. P.S. Thanks to the photo I realize now I painted her strabic....
  2. So while I was shopping at Ral Partha Europe (not the same as Ral Partha), I spotted some figures from Das Schwarze Auge which looked kind of nice in an Old School sort of way. Das Schwarze Auge was apparently Germany's answer to D&D in the 1980s. It was (might still be) quite popular there. I don't know the history of the figures. Anyhow, this is Das Schwarze Auge 15500B, "Female Sorcerer". I started this figure a while back, keeping it at the back of my painting table and adding bits as I painted other things. All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios. Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated. This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers. I already painted her face before I took a picture. Oh, and I left the orb on her staff just primed white because that will make it look more glowing when I paint it later.

    02726: Tuilin, Female Elf

    Needed to relax and paint for fun for a change, and wanted to try some new paints. This was a Fun little one, in spite of a slight miscast. Tuilin: It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but I even managed to get pupils in her eyes that I’m happy with, yay! The blue is a Vallejo shade I wanted to try out. It’s turquoise in English, but the Spanish name is Halcón Milenario (Millennium Falcon). I don’t know why they call it that as Han’s ship was most certainly not this color, but it’s pretty. Shadows and highlights were attempted by adding MSP Nightmare Black and Dragon White, respectively. Her hair was another attempt at the Blond Hair triad, which is taking a bit of effort to get a handle on. It didn’t help that all my brushes are failing on me right when it’s not possible to get new ones. Comments and critiques welcome!

    Churrusina - 60195

    I finished Churrusina. I am mostly happy with her. Not 100% on the spell effect. I painted and repainted it and decided this was the best try so stopped. I have included the purple smoke photo I used for inspiration, I just couldn't quite get there! Anyway, I think she looks like she could be an interesting NPC for my players to "meet"! C&C welcome. Thanks for looking! Pretty purple smoke.

    Bones 3 Ogres and Command

    Got the ogres and ogre command in Bones 3 and decided to paint them all up at once so that they'd match. I call the regular ogres Huey, Dewey, and Louie due to their colors (I find a clear color delineation makes it easier to track them during games) and I really like the floral pattern on the green bags, like he just scrounged them up from someone else. The command figures were fun, creating all the mismatched plates on the warrior. I decided that the ogre "sorceress" should be "hot" so I painted her up in a tartan mini skirt and semi transparent white shirt, as well as putting her "purse goblin" in pink and giving her a tramp stamp (didn't get a great photo of that, sadly). I really enjoyed painting these guys up. Edit: I swapped out the Ogre Fighter's mace for the hooked blade from the Fire Giant Jailer, because I just liked the hooked weapon more.

    77175: Ghoul Queen

    I like painting sheer fabric, so the Ghoul Queen seemed like a mini to do more of that on.
  7. Hello again. Some time ago, during a game of Bolt Action, one of my friends told us about a campaign he was planning, focused on a fantasy setting using the rules of Frostgrave. As he and some other friends were working on a SciFi setting simultaneously, I thought of the possibility of creating an army that fits both settings – Fantasy and Sci Fi. But what kind of figures would be able to fit into my setting? Looking around, I got aware of the Blood Vestals by Raging Heroes. They seem to be perfect for my army and so I acquired a group of them and also got me some bases with ruins – currently I don’t have got the time to make them all by myself. There is only one problem – they are partially clothed … RATED N for NUDITY RATED N for NUDITY II RATED N for NUDITY III So … though a young woman in all her natural beauty might be quite a sight for sore eyes, I figured them to be a bit unfit for my idea. I mean - we are talking about Frostgrave. Frost. Cold. Quite Cold. Who would risk to get a cold by running around naturally dressed? So – best way for me to work with them might be to unnude them. I looked around a bit further, but couldn't figure a way to make the figures look like I wanted them to look like. To be honest - I don't even have an idea what I want to do. Bravo, Monsieur. You're quite something. Then by chance, I stumbled over the at concepts of NieR: Automata, which is a sequel to the critically acclaimed game NieR and includes some pretty artwork and figures. I already know the game, especially for the "AB" Diskussion regarding the clothing of main character 2b, but still never really thought about the design. Hm. Not bad. I somehow like the lolita concept. But it is quite modern, so there should be a change in design to make it more fantasyesque. Also having been a fan of the Valkyria Chronicles franchise since I came to know it (some 6 years ago or so), I figured that the clothes of Selvaria and Aliasse from the franchise would make a good addition. Sexy Lolita clothes, white and blue-white hair, red eyes and dark grey and golden colors? I am currently thinking about how to bring all those concepts together – but I am sure that the outcome will be great :-D Haha. If anyone has an idea on how to put all that stuff together, I'd be thankful :-D For the skin I took a picture from the internet, which I really liked: Quite a thought. I checked my bits box and found a fantasy figure I will use as the central figure for my army – the Crimson Empress or Witch or whatever. She will be the figure on which I test how the colors work together. Looking forward to seeing her finished … Well then - Let's start and see where this ends.
  8. Seriously people - I have no idea. Who was this lady again? While Sophie was drying I started to paint her and actually made pretty good progress so far. Tried to get back to my former painting style. Not entirely happy, but happy enough to keep going. If anyone knows what the name of this model is - tell me. I'd be grateful enough to tell her that you knew what I didn't.
  9. Here is the mage/wizard/sorceress in my Dragons Don't Share 2 adventuring party. She was fun to paint. I wanted a diverse group so I gave her more of a Mediterranean skin tone and ombre hair. I am still trying to decide if I want to give her a spell effect in her giant hand. It doesn't bother me as much now that it is painted so not sure if I will go ahead with a spell effect or leave her as is. I tried a little freehand on her scarf/cape thing. They aren't quite even but I was relatively happy with the design so am leaving it alone. I am getting a dvd so hopefully my freehand will improve. C&C welcome!

    02967 - Alastriel, Elf Sorceress

    Greetings! Presenting Alastriel, Elf Sorceress...... I really love the wonderful sculpting on this mini, she seems to be both beautiful & dangerous at the same time. I imagined her as a "Sea Elf" who lives on the cost protecting her kin from marauders & pirates with ship-destroying storm spells. I painted her in sea blue & sea green & extended the base with some rough basic sculpting into a more substantial rocky outcrop to reflect this. Thanks for looking!

    77203: Alastriel, Elf Sorceress

    I painted this up yesterday evening. I'm pretty happy with it overall but there's a lot of nit picky things that I would adjust, which I might go back and do later. It's for one of husband's RPG campaigns so it needed to be done ASAP. I got my light box but it's missing a piece so until it shows up I'm stuck with not so great cell phone photos. This was my first attempt at subtle makeup. I'm not even sure if you can really see it in the photo though. I'm happier with the eyes than I usually am, hopefully this means I'm getting a little better at it. Comments and advice are greatly appreciated.

    02967: Alastriel, Elf Sorceress

    This was heavily inspired by James Wappel who painted the model in similar fashion.

    Reaper 03547: Juliette the Green

    I really liked the posture on this mini. I imagined her standing in a recently-scorched landscape, unharmed, waiting for her turn at initiative to come up to retaliate. :-)

    Spring Exchange to Fanguard

    Below is my spring exchange sent to Fanguard "the god of exchanges" so the pressure was on. he wanted something,, and I quote "Maybe something inspired by "Fairy Tail" the anime/manga" So after doing some research and watching a number of Anime shorts online, I selected one of the main characters to emulate along with a background character. Of course I did not choose one of the "good" "guys", instead I went for one of the bad girls! Using 60129: Chelaxian Infernal Binder as the mini I give you Minerva Orlando of the Sabertooth guild! I tried to imitate her power build up magic vortex in her casting hand, which always happens just before she casts a spell. The colors overall are loosely based on the character including her signature whites scarf. I , of course, had too add my own signature color (orange) as well. Then I added the background Palace guard character. The guards show up in the series in the last episode I watched,,, just cause! here is 14407: Crusader Templar Ironspine as the guard in his dress palace colors! I hope you enjoy and all feedback is appreciated!

    77057: Juliette, Female Sorceress

    I have an idea to paint a mini in really dark red, dark enough that the colors I've used as shades in the past would count as midtones or even highlights. This of course calls for a test subject. Enter poor Juliette, she of the miscast face and both hands. I was experimenting with the highlights a bit, but ended up with something that looked off. To correct for this I glazed over with red ink, which shifted the color back but made her a bit shiny. That's fine for tabletop I suppose since she'll get dullcote eventually, but is usually something I try to avoid. And the obligatory facial damage shot.
  17. Well, finished this last night. There is a WIP thread, but honestly there's hardly any difference between those shots and these, except some work on the lips. And these are less blurry. I mainly wanted to paint this miniature to experiment with painting blue skin. The skin is Formula P3 Trollblood base, with varying amounts of Reaper Pure White added. It took for or five layers, finishing up with some tiny lines of pure white on the highlights. Reaper Witchcraft Purple featured prominently also, especially in her hair. Speaking of which, the camera has totally failed to capture the dark blue-purple shadows between hair strands, made using a wash of Witchcraft Purple cut with Indigo Blue. Oh well. I'm still not entirely happy with the lips. But I can live with them. Here are pics of the base from a slightly top-down angle: The base is resin, from Micro Arts Studio's Possessed line, in the WRound 30mm group.

    Liela, Dark Elf Wizard (Bones)(77121)

    For those that have followed along with my "All Bones About It" blog, where I'm chronicling my effort to paint all the Bones 1 Kickstarter figures I purchased, I was happy today to have reached the 200th figure out of the 266 that I am painting from Bones 1. It feels good to hit another milestone on this adventure! It seems all down hill from here, with only 66 figures left to go. With some real determination I think I can get it done by the end of the year. Currently I'm working on the Dark Elves set, and this past week I completed Liela, Dark Elf Wizard, from that set. I did a quick table-top paint job on her, and I'm generally pleased with it except I feel her face came out rather flat, and her expression rather dull. I don't think I was thinking in terms of the added difficulty of doing a pure black face when I did hers. I'll be more prepared next time. :) ​As always C & C welcome.

    01559: Malena the Sorceress

    Man I have really been slacking on getting these minis posted. Last one for tonight, I promise. Enjoy edit: So I have to admit I got a little exited playing with new toys last night and rushed the picture process. But I just wasn't happy with how dark they turned out. After another read through of the Miniatures Photography 101 I think I did a much better job today. Now You can see all the detail good and bad! Still my favorite. Any tips on painting orbs?
  20. Another that I have been working on. Enjoy edit: So I have to admit I got a little exited playing with new toys last night and rushed the picture process. But I just wasn't happy with how dark they turned out. After another read through of the Miniatures Photography 101 I think I did a much better job today. Now You can see all the detail good and bad! I had some focusing issues trying to get them both in one shot, so I have a shot of each instead.
  21. Finished these tonight. I think I've posted the vampire before, but I based her, so that's new. Now I am just missing three dregs, and the warband is ready to play:

    GW, Daemonette

    I was fairly happy with this one until I took photos. See that I have managed to clot the paint a little much. Don't want to fiddle with her anymore though. The little tree is made from a dried grape-wine. :/

    Bones Juliette (77057)

    I felt like painting pink and trying to line in brown, instead of my usual black, so the discontinued Juliette became my test subject. I think I prefer lining with black The right side of Juliette's face is quite a mess, both her hands have issues, and there were several other rough spots on the model. But rejoice, Reaper are making new molds, so I am thinking an improved Bones Juliette will be re-released sometime.
  24. These are two figures I did for table top. I started Lysette awhile back before I learned a different way to do eyes. When I picked her back up, I decided not to redo the eyes so she has a "deer in the headlights" look about her. I tried several different things on her - glazing, a little "what happens if I add purple and yellow to her red hair?", and a touch of two brush blending. Alastriel also got to be a guinea pig. She got my first dark skin tone, two brush blending, and freehand. It was a good lesson in what worked and what didn't and how to improve on the next one. Alastriel isn't based yet. I think she may get some sand. Anyway, I have just been trying out some different techniques and trying to up my skill. I want to enter a painting competition so I need more practice!
