  1. These are my players for Chaos, in Blood Bowl. The Minotaur/Ogre and daemonettes, are from GW, and the Warriors are a mix of parts from GW, and Avatars of War.
  2. I'm not a big fan of the Stormcast Eternals Games Workshop put in their Age of Sigmar line. However, looking at some things other people have done, I realized there were basically two things I hated: The immortals-style faces, and the all-gold paint scheme. The heads aren't bad in-and-of themselves, but when every unit sports the same derpy face, it makes them look less interesting. The all-gold paint scheme made it harder to pick out details. So, I thought I'd try fixing that. As you can see, I went with a primarily steel paint for their armor with the gold functioning as more of a trim. Blue goes pretty well with both gold and steel. The steel, gold, and blue were done mostly using the Scale75 paintsets. Faces were done with various Reaper skintone paints. Blondie here got his headswap from the Space Wolves Pack. This guy's head might be recognizable as one of the Anhurian crossbowmen. Bones are great for swaps. Red's head came from Reaper's Sir Rathan Kranzhel, also in Bones. It's amazing how much difference a slightly different color scheme and some headswaps can make.
  3. I've started working on a classic Chaos sorcerer (variously known as Hutk'Nile, Hutk'Nke or Huth'Nke the plague priest) for a painting challenge at the local Warhammer shop. Basic challenge, paint a single GW character or infantry mini by April 1st and customers will vote for the best in store. I don't think there's even any kind of prize involved, but it's a good excuse to get something done and flex my painting muscles a bit. So, I started with some zenithal priming using spray cans: Then started on the robes: The base colour is Tausept Ochre, an old Citadel foundation colour, shaded with some RMS Russet Brown and highlighted with RMS Amber Gold and Ghost White (linen white probably would have suited better, but oh well) using wet blending. I've also added a bit of Clear Purple to the Russet Brown for the deepest shadows to try and get some more interesting colour contrast going on. I need to do a bit of tidying up of the highlights, but I'm pretty happy with the robes now and I'll move on to the flesh next I think. I'm considering a pallid flesh colour with some bluish tones, or maybe green.
  4. Apologies in advance as some of these pictures I fear are a bit larger than I'd thought =/ I tried to crop them well enough for this forum but not sure how well I succeeded. These are the pieces I've made this year, pretty much originally for my swamp board, for Warhammer. However, once I started making them I realized it'd be a better idea to actually make them a bit modular, for all RPGs and other wargames (like frostgrave and malifaux). And it makes for a bit easier storage. Most of these pieces were inspired by the local swamps like Okefenokee here in GA. I find all these kind of areas just beautiful and full of so many unique features! These are some basic Ruins. I found using a foamboard for the base was not a great idea, it warped too much unfortunately. Here (below) a Swamp Pond, or bridge to terra firma as I've called it (couple different versions) My mausoleum piece. This is sort of in keeping with the ruins piece. It's meant to sit in a (obviously) drier part of the swamp, while getting inspiration from the swamp for plants etc. I'm working on two other pieces now (only in planning stages) - one is to be a more central piece of swampy land with lots of water areas and maybe(!) solid land parts, the second is going to be a kind of monster bird nesting spot, something like a marsh bird that nests near swamps. I plan on using pine straw (plentiful out here in GA) to make the "nests", something as yet undecided for 'eggs' and I'm looking for suitable figures for the bird monsters. The idea being a dangerous area PCs (or armies, in wargaming) may or may not want to wander into!
  5. My first time ever trying to paint something from this company, so wish me luck! I've mostly only ever painted Bones, with the occasional pewter mini in there. This is new territory
  6. Looks like you will see the process from the middle, but i think it`s not a problem. As you can see, i have added some nice butt to her. That idea was around for some long, as i wanted to sculpt the legs for Boudicca, but decided not to do this (yeagh, if i do so, then i will finish whole series in a thousand years!) Anyway, i think that THIS WAY Lagertha is just good enough. Also, the detailed article about Tamiya putty on its way. See ya!
  7. I have been gaming for a vast majority of my life. I've played everything from WarHammer to D&D, and many things in between. In my younger years, before I had actual bills and living expenses, doling out cash for the latest model for whatever table top I happened to be into was not big deal. As an adult, I found myself less willing to part with substantial amounts of money for game pieces. That being said, I have found a love in the Bones sets that Reaper has put out. They are easily modded, and wonderful to paint, and the price!! Don't get me started. In my current Table top game, D&D, I have purchased and painted all of the characters for my players. Each of the players are metal models from Reaper. All of my monsters and NPCs are Bones models, with a couple of exceptions that came from other board games like Zombicide Black Plague or Descent. My players love having painted models on the table, and I feel like it allows them to be more invested in the game. I have even found myself, more recently, looking through the Bones models and building encounters in my cart online. The, I purchase and paint them up, so they are ready for the game. So I was wondering, with all of the talent on these forums, how many of you use the Reaper minis for games (other than the Reaper games like WarLord)? Do you use them for RPGs? Do you ever have trouble finding a mini that suits your needs as a character or monster? CAH
  8. Here are some Space Hulk miniatures. I posted this as my January painting goal. Woot! I made it. I will be runnning Space Hulk at Rapiercon (http://www.rapiercon.com/) next month and wanted the figs to be painted. To be honest, though, this is not the complete set. I wanted two squads of terminators to be easy to tell apart, so two different colors were used. The figs in the box are very specific to the Blood Angels (red) chapter, so I used some other figs to represent the Ultramarines (blue). There are still 7 terminators left to call the box done, but it is good enough for what I have planned. https://goo.gl/photos/51NRopffdm9mvUwM8
  9. Last year I was asked to help paint some Warhammer scenery so a friend that runs a small store could start getting some games together. I've painted a number of buildings, ruins, fences, and pipes, but I think that The Garden of Morr is the nicest set I've gotten to work with, as well as the first that I got to assemble myself. It was also exciting to be able to apply what I had learned to this point and to see actual improvement. I hope that this year brings more painting and even more improvement! These are hosted on imgur, if you'd like to look at an unreasonably huge version of any image you can drag the image to your address bar and take the 'l' off of the end of the image name. I've only included one view of each unique piece so this doesn't get massive but I can add views if desired because I took a ton of pictures.
  10. Finished this guy the other day. I am happy with how the face turned out.:
  11. Just like 2015, I realized the end of Orctober was quickly approaching, and I hadn't painted a single Orc! I had to remedy that, but I went through the box of "primed and ready" and found the Orcs...lacking. I had to build a few, and these were the results of those most near completion already. First, we have a group shot: "C'mon, boyz, dance like ya mean it! Show the crowd what they came here fer!" Some solo shots of the notorious Kap'n Kee-Runch, a Freeboota of little note. He's assembled from the Tankbusta Nob, arms from the plastic Nob box, and a pirate Ork head from Spellcrow. Then we have savages, the lot of them: A very agile lot of Savages. Check out those dance moves! That's the end of that.
  12. This one took a long time to complete. I claimed it finished two times, but got more feedback. Fixed a little here, added a little there.. And as they say; All good things are three. :)
  13. First tank I've ever painted. Sort of happy with how it turned out. The wings/skull symbols are made from clay.:
  14. Got this in a trade. The modifications are done by a friend. I completed the paint job.: Barrel was drilled after the pics were taken. :)
  15. I found some Army Men terrain at my local thrift shop... How It's Made
  16. I painted this up over the course of one day, yesterday. Curious to see what you guys think! If you're interested in how I made it...process is laid out here: xactoguru.blogspot.ca
  17. Zyhoeis the Ancient, Zoat Wizard. Zyhoeis is a lvl 15 Wizard and leads a band of Zoat Warriors to defend their Forest homes.I sculpted a Zoat and had him cast in metal, I also included parts to convert the Wizard into a Warrior model. I sculpted a Zoat miniature on commision last month. I also sculpted the necessary additional parts to convert the castings into Warrior versions. Zoat Warrior
  18. Made a coven throne from the start collecting set. Now it just needs basing.: WIP pics:
  19. That is a group of Elves, right? A Frolicking? First, we have the full frolicking: Then, Lord Snootypants, a Paladin of some renown (a Warhammer Swordmaster Champion) His associate, Sir Be'tar Tanu (a repainted Mage Knight piece, though I believe the sculpt is originally an Elf General by Ral Partha) Some Elf hippie chick (from Dwarf Wars, I believe) Next, a hippie...with a bow! (Reaper Bones) Dai'rai, actually a character piece for my ongoing Isle of Dread campaign, a Mystic of the Half-Elven persuasion (converted from Stonehaven's Elf Raider) And, the most important Elf of them all, the Royal Pastromancer, Laird Keeb'lar (Stonehaven's Elf Baker) (Apologies for the blurriness, I attempted to bypass the storm preventing outside photos by doing color correction, and it seems to have messed with some of them)
  20. Finished the last model in my Tyranid army for now. All hail the King and Queen. :)
  21. "...And he came upon a dark figure astride a pale horse, the horse was named Pestilence and its rider was Death." Presenting a Chaos Champion of Nurgle from Games Workshop. This is one of the few times where I've known exactly what I've wanted the finished mini to look like before I started painting it, and despite him ending up a bit too purple to be a proper substitute for Death, I'm really pleased with the job I did. As always, any comments or criticisms are greatly appreciated.
  22. This is Dragoth the Defiler and his throne, towered by an Undead Zombie Dragon. He will lead my army in Age of Sigmar. :) Magnetized, so he can change between ruling on his throne, and slaughter from his mount. ^^
  23. The Cursed Company was a regiment of Skeletons, Captained by Richter Kreugar (the Damned). They were dogs-of-war (mercenaries) that could be hired by any other Warhammer army, with three exceptions: the Bretonnians the Tomb Kings and the Vampire Counts. I never heard or read an explanation for what they would do with the money they earned. Games Workshop fluff was always a bit dodgy like that. The backstory was that originally Richter was a living human regiment Captain who had some untoward dealings with a Wizard or Necromancer. He ended up, dead, undead, and in possession of a cursed sword that would instantly turn anything it killed into a skeleton warrior.
  24. So these are some of the infantry types I'm working on for my army to play vs. my son's Necrons. Trying for a piratey theme, so I did the bases like a seashore. At least that's the look I'm going for! I did the bases with heavy gel medium, tried to sculpt some wave forms. Then put down a fine layer of sand with PVA and used brown paint and a dark earth wash. Final step before adding water effects was drybrush with iraqi sand (a light khaki colour). For some of the bigger models I plan to try to add a few more details, maybe a shell here or there, driftwood etc.
  25. Did this Hive Tyrant yesterday/today. He is magnetized to be able to switch between legs and wings. The 'not alien' head is from Epoch Studioz. Overall, I am really happy with this one. Edit: Updating the post with the based miniature. It has some drool, now, too! Alternate version, with all magnetized parts switched out:
