So, here's one I tripped over on Kickstarter:
Basically, someone's doing miniatures... which didn't really grab me, until I saw the one for Edgar Allen Poe. I'm from Baltimore, so I have to get that one. And there's an HP Lovecraft, and some other cool stuff. What do others think?
The Deck of Many is a series of 5e reference cards for Monsters, NPCs, Conditions and Weapons.
The Deck of Many is a tool used to assist Game Masters in their role-playing campaigns, freeing them from traditional reference books and allowing them to only bring the references they need. Each card features original artwork and easy to reference information. Should we be successful, all funds raised from this campaign will go towards producing the 4 decks and other campaign rewards.
Starting price: $16 for your choice of 1 deck including shipping to U.S & CAN

Just a bunch of Eastern myth themed minis, mostly from Bones III and one Kenku/Tengu Monk from Stonehaven.
Oh, and some Myconids from Ganesha Games and Bones III plant monsters. More Mario than myth, I suppose.
I like the male Kitsuine a lot more than I was expecting. His pose, with all its swagger, adds a lot of character. I also hadn't noticed the sake cup he was holding until I started painting.
Whipped this guy up while taking a break from a few bigger projects. There are a LOT of touchups that I need to make, but for a palette cleanser, I think he turned out pretty cool. I think I need to find a place in my house with better lighting, because I notice a lot of detail errors when I get the close-up picture taken that I never saw when painting. Does anyone use magnifying glass or something else to help with smaller parts of a fig? I have excellent vision, but the difference between just looking at a fig on a tabletop and getting picture taken is pretty stark. Now I need to come up with a Big Bad Evil Guy so I can use this guy during an adventure. I appreciate any advice and critiques! Thanks!

Intellect devourers were always one of my favorite D&D monsters, so I'd been planning on painting this mini eventually, but I never got around to buying it since it was kind of plain compared to most other minis. As fortune had it, though, I got it as a bonus with my last order from Reaper, so I decided to just do it. Color scheme was based on a mixture of the AD&D 2nd Edition Monstrous Manual intellect devourer, the more "realistic" 3rd edition version, and a smattering of actual crabs.
As usual, the process of working on it is on my blog: link
Unfortunately, I wasn't sure how to handle holding a mini without a base that I could stick on top of a shot glass. I held it by unpainted parts for as long as I could, but in the end, I held it by the brain to finish off the talons. Sadly, that led to some of the paint getting rubbed off (probably could've avoided at least some of that if I hadn't been squeezing it so hard, but it's easy to forget my strength at times). Aside from that, though, I'm rather pleased with how it turned out . It was a simple mini, but I enjoyed it. C&C welcome (especially any tips for how to avoid damaging finished paint on baseless minis, short of varnishing a completed area to hold it by for the final parts).
