    77034: Male High Wizard

  2. I painted 2 minis for @Jasper_the_2nd for the spring exchange. I had an idea for awhile to paint a little vignette based on a funny cartoon. When I was given Jasper as my exchange partner and read his survey, I knew he was the right recipient! I painted Galladon (one of my favorite minis, don't ask me why) as a grumpy wizard who has set out to summon a demon. He carefully prepares the spell and casts his incantation....there is smoke and a "poof"! He is so excited to see what evil he has called forth. He peers into the smoke. He sees piercing eyes staring back at him. The smoke starts to clear, his excitement builds! What the..... He grabs the scroll to see what went wrong....

    77412: Lendil Blackfoot

    This guy was a wild ride, at one point the shading and blending was way off. Blending and shading are two thins I’m working on most so in the end it was good to have to dial him back. Still not fully pleased with the back of him, but he did teach me a lot.

    03667: Nonalla Ellinad, Elf Wizard

    I haven't painted much lately, but I did make time to paint this for a close friend's D&D character. So far she seems happy with it, so I'm happy. Sorry for the lighting - forgot to take a proper photo before gifting it, so I had to hold it almost inside a lamp.

    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!
  7. This is a Clanwars mini provided by @Jasper_the_2nd in my project he is Master Nurin. WIP and story here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79416-nippon-land-of-the-rising-moon-by-glitterwolf/&page=2 I tried a little freehand. Two sets of pics in different light. Which ones are the best? Master Nurin watched how the undead samurai burned down the Kenmu town. Yoshigaru would be pleased, this was only the beginning. His wrath for murdering the Toda Clan would be merciless.
  8. Well, and yet another of Reaper’s 25th anniversary miniatures. The second one: Domur. There’s really nothing original here, tried to copy their scheme. I only added a cat, so Darius’s rat has someone to play with.

    "Darius the blue", 25th anniversary

    I actually started a WIP for this miniature: but the idea was to show how I tried to copy the blue mosaic on the clothing that reaper did. I couldn't. That's the story of a failure. So I finally just painted him on a slightly different color scheme, and here we have the results... That's my Darius the blue and his cute rat familiar, Kyorli.

    CAH's Elven Mage... for a friend.

    This is a piece I did for a friend of mine. It's for his D&D character who is currently trapped in the underdark. He said the character was an Evocation Specialist, using Ice lance, Lightening bolt, and fireball. The color palette came from that idea, using cool colors for the ice lance, and the warm colors from the fireball. The hair, though you cant tell from my awesome cellphone picture, is actually highlighted with metallic Mirthril, since the character has silvery hair. Overall, I am really happy with how he came out. I am planning to do a cave like base, but for now the solid base will work. Enjoy! CAH

    Tengu Wizard reaper 03775

    First Post! Hard to see in the pictures but his eyes and beak are done in a shiny varnish. Im pretty proud of him and might base him at some point. Any Critique is welcome!
  12. I have all the 25th anniversary minis and now it's Darius turn. It's one of my favourites; and while frecuently the "official" painting scheme wasn't for me, because many of them were too colorful (let's say Ametrine or Dain) and I painted them somber, I like the scheme on Darius. The issue is... I never tried to replicate such an ambitious pattern: that blue mosaic. I'm not great with freehands, and to cover his entire clothing with it looks almost scary. So I decided to start the project sharing it here. First things first, I primed Darius Black. On second thoughts I should probably used white primer, but well, it's done now... Then based him. White putty to fit his base to the plastic base. Then I decided to try a few colors, and to do that I used another mini I'm not really interested on right now. As you can see on the pic, I tried three different blues for the base color. They all look darker than they should because before I start with the mosaic I will highlight them: the idea is choose one, paint the entire clothing with highlights. I'm still not sure which one. I'm inclined to the one I'm pointing with the brush; but on photo it looks slightly different... I will try other mixes to see if I can find something a bit more turquoise. Now on photo I think that there is too much contrast between the two blues; and when I'm working with Darius, the pattern will be also more neat, small and precise. Now it's a bit rough because it's just all about color. I'm also undecided about the mosaic. I will highlight it too, once applied. I'm using a pale blue, which will be paler when I highlight it. Any advice so welcomed because that's totally new to me...

    Leisynn, Mercenary Mage 77174

    Painted this fig last night for an upcoming adventure. I've needed a generic evil wizard for a while now. I found this guy at my local game store and decided he would be perfect. I did have some grand plans with his spell book that didn't turn out. I was planning on making script on one page that looked like it was glowing starting at the top left, and continuing until about the middle of the page as if the words were magically glowing as he cast a spell. The results ended up looking like the script was squiggly lines with green slime spilled on them. Other than that, I'm really happy with how he turned out. Advice and critiques welcome as always! Thanks in advance!
  14. As with all of my pieces, this was painted with Reaper MSP, and Reaper Bones MSP. The robes are the layered blues (Void Blue, Tropical, Glacier, and Frost). The hair was done with Gothic Crimson, Valcanic Orange, and Canary Yellow. The white parts of the robe were completed using Khaki Shadow, Bleached Linen, and Dragon White. The gold was Desert Stone, Golden blonde, then washed with a Candlelight yellow glaze. I like the effect overall. I had fun with this piece, but it was mainly an exercise in rebasing. I wanted to add him to a clear acrylic base, so that I could see how well it would come out. I've seen many figures, mostly for board games, on this type of base, and I thought it would be neat for my players. Also, the bases that I put on my figures, are sometimes distracting to my players during the game. Things like snow on a figure base, but the adventure is currently in a tropical jungle or desert. Nothing major, but I thought it might be a little less distracting for game pieces. I still plan on decorating the bases of my display pieces. So, what do you think of the piece overall? CAH

    02835: Jolie, Female Scribe - Blue Wizard

    Sometimes you eat the paint, and sometimes the paint eats you. This one is closer to the latter. Here’s Jolie the blue-themed Scribe: I just wanted to relax and have some fun with this mini, and try out some paints for the first time. So I started out basecoating her robes in Frosty Blue from the holiday set, and it looked pretty good. Used some Rosy Skin and Scholar Flesh on her skin, and it looked pretty good. Unboxed the blond hair triad and laid down the mid tone and it looked pretty good, which was when it became apparent I was painting Disney’s Cinderella. That could not stand, so I threw some gray in front and gave her a pink sash, which was originally a dark blue then an ill-advised red. I’m honestly pleased at how those parts turned out, especially the highlights in front. The rest of the model was a series of small disasters in shadow and highlights, and at some point I decided it was as good as it was going to get, tossed some Palomino Gold on the fancy bits, and put an end to the struggle. Though I did take the opportunity to try painting sheer clothing, not sure if it works (gloved forearm): C&C appreciated.

    01601: Domur, High Mage (25th anniversary)

    This year is the year of giving miniatures as birthday gifts to the friends I game with. One of these fine fellows--my oldest and dearest friend--has a birthday in a couple weeks. He loves magic-users and is obsessed with Harry Potter, so I painted up a 25th anniversary Domur as a classic "Gandalf the Grey" style wizard for his present: Tried to layer the flames to give some interesting and pleasing texture. Let me know how I did. Also, given his love for all things Potter, I did my best to modify Domur's spellbook to a more familiar book cover... I'm actually surprised I could keep the brush steady enough for it to come across at all similar, to be honest.

    03504: Karahl Farstep - Green Wizard

    Hopefully the first of many, this was an experiment in color - in this case, green. And while his wide stance was a problem at first, I made it work. Karahl Farstep: Hood and cloak are both a mix of Brilliant Green and Linen White, 3:1 for the darker areas and 1:2 everywhere else. The cloak is shadowed with purple (thanks, @Cyradis!), and I think it came out pretty nicely in front. Had to redo the back due to becoming shadow happy. For the light greens I was hoping to achieve something close to mint green, but it came out a lot more washed out and boring than hoped. So I freehanded borders around those parts with some Palomino Gold. Not daring enough to do anything fancier than that yet, but I think it makes a positive difference. Comments and critiques welcome, I’d like to know what works or doesn’t, and what to try and do better next time.

    03787: The Crimson Herald

    Presenting The Herald, the third member of my Dreadmere group. At the suggestion of Crowley, I added more tentacles to connect him to his base a bit better. While I'm happy with how this went, I don't think he's as well painted as the other two. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  19. Well, that one was a bit challenging. Mostly for the patience it takes to go through all his gold decoration lol The palette is nothing special: I tried to copy Confrontation's official painting, except I used true metals because NMM are far beyond my hability. Confrontation was well known for a while as one of the top miniature companies in the market. Tons of figures with a bold and eccentric design. I have a few of them but Misran is the first I actually paint. I think it's pretty original, fun, and a good example of Confrontation's fantasy style where proportion or logic matters less than eye appeal. All critiques so very welcome!

    Andrea Miniature's Khaerus

    Here a beautiful sculpt from the spanish miniature studio "Andrea miniaturas". It's the wizard "Khaerus el invocador", which I painted with a piromancer palette, and included kind of a flame-familiar invocation. I'm pretty happy with the outcome, particularly with the red-oranges that work, I think, beautifully

    Vordakai, Cyclops Lich

    One of my favourite sculpts, quite a weird creature. I love wizards. I'm happy with the color palette, the blues and greens combine just fine with the skin tone and I think I blended them nicely.
  22. "One of my favourite range of figures ever was Citadel's 1980's licensed "Lord Of The Rings" minis. I have finally decided to get all the miniatures I own painted up (over time) & try to acquire the ones which are missing from my collection (& paint them up too!)". Here is my next completed mini - Gandalf. It's actually part of a blister of 3 minis (ME1 - Fellowship Heroes) which also includes Strider & Frodo. He was quite nice to paint overall - not too complicated either. Thanks for looking!
  23. Painted (mostly) by-the-numbers, Anirion: This was a departure from my normal style of painting, and I made a number of mistakes, but wanted to stick to the instructions and see how it all turned out. All things considered, I think it looks decent. I didn’t worry about trying to correct the bend in the staff or any mold lines. And I added a third highlight layer (more yellow) to the robes, to make them pop just a bit more. The camera washed these out, it seems. The little details probably deserved more attention, but the focus here was clearly on the robes. I think I did learn a few new things, hopefully for the better. More practice will help. Comments and critiques welcome.
  24. Hi there, here's another player character from my current Storm King's Thunder D&D campaign. One of my players has a rock gnome lore wizard. He didn't like the gnome miniatures from Reaper very much, but he loved the Halfling wizard. However, he insisted on wearing shoes and also to get rid of the familiar rabbit at the miniature's side. So this is a modified version with new shoes. I admit, they DO look a bit like giant wodden clogs, but hey - my player liked them anyway. Hope you like it!

    03449: Halmar, Young Wizard

    Hi there, I have another player character from my D&D Storm King's Thunder campaign to share. It belongs to a player with a phoenix bloodline sorcerer. So this is the fire guy of the party. He liked the dynamic pose and the flame of the Halmar miniature, so I painted him up. I'm not good with OSL at all, but I tried to add a little bit of light on the clothes and the hair. Have to practice more before I try glowing undead ^^ I hope you like it.
