I recently (not really recently...) backed the new Blood Rage Digital kickstarter. I've had my eyes on the game for some time but didn't want to buy it without the plastic tokens, so when the kickstarter came along I jumped on board. While waiting for the extras I'm planning to buy the core game and get it painted. With one of the pieces being the Fire Giant I want to enhance the base with some fire effects (lava or the like). But I needed something to practice on. Balor became that something. Or the base at first. Then I just had to finish it. I had higher hopes when I started but I don't have the patience for lager miniatures, so I ended up cutting as many corners as I could. All and all it did end up better than I thought it would.
My first show off thread! Not because I am prouder of these than anything else, more that these were close to hand when I considered taking photos and keeping more of a visual record of my mini painting adventures.
OH's dad and partner got me these, amongst other, Otherworld Miniatures for Christmas and I thought these were really fun sculpts! I did these in one evening (and maybe another half hour the next day), and I'm happy with their table-top level quality. I used aquarium plant on the bases and I'm thinking I may go back and paint over that as it is quite bold- but for now I consider these done!
Unfortunately I can't foresee these swamp-dwellers making an appearance in my City dwelling d&d campaign, but you never know!
This is a continuation of a thread started in "More X-Wing Fun", covering stories for a start until some new pilots are trained. I gave out "The Force Awakens" to a few guys for Christmas and Birthdays in the hopes of expanding the player base. The group at the local game store seems to have vanished. So continuing...
This is the Rebellion News Network (R.N.N.)
Watchman reporting from somewhere in the Distal Reaches.
We encountered a rather strange cosmic anomaly that has thrown us off course; no one seems to know our present whereabouts. The emergency transmitter has been broadcasting our location since we lost our course lock-on. It has been only forty-five minutes but we have been informed of a locating beacon that has started transmitting a positional fix to home in on. Evidently this is not a standard type beacon, not matching anything on the Galactic Navigational Charts… We are, finally, approaching an uncharted planetary body…
We have been instructed to close all view ports before we land. I am placing a Remote Optical Pad on the port that should pass all but the closest detailed external inspection. I plan to activate a Randomized Signal Receiver just before touchdown, and possibly obtain some external video… So, a Military base of some sort: a Gozanti Cruiser taking off (?), and Y-wing bombers. Looks like about two squadrons of Kihraxz fighters landing. Here are two rows of Z-95s, which I am unable to determine how many are present. Looks like a standard type of base construction seen elsewhere. Hmmm, there is no visible activity of any kind currently, which I can pick out, inside the installation.
Okay we are going down and swinging around just past the base.
We have an interesting development, looks like I am picking up stray video signals close by from someone doing a visual scan of us. They seem to be interested in our weapons mounts. Sorry guys nothing new or special here, same-o, same-o.
Could this be a dual function base? I see three Jumpmaster 5000s, an YT1300 and a HWK290. Also an air patrol of Protectorate Star fighters. Okay feed was terminated.
I will complete the report when we liftoff.
As I recently finished an orc squad, I’m now focusing on a goblin one. I’d like to share my progress with you.
These will be used for tabletop gaming, in DnD campaigns I recently started DMing.
They’re all reaper minis. On these pictures I had just removed the mold lines, glued the separate parts and put the priming on :
- 03850: Armored Goblin Spearmen (2) (the smallest one)
- 03462: Goblin Warriors (4)
- 03777: Cave Goblin Archers (2)
- 03838: Sakarat, Goblin Wizard
There are a few other ones for which I didn’t take pictures at the beginning.
I didn’t want to make them green, so I was going for a yellowish orange for their skin... But as I was wandering through all the paints at my local GW, I stumbled on that “Squig Orange” and decided that was the one.
So now they’re almost red :
And here are the others that I didn’t think about photographing at the beginning :
- 2 copies of 07003: Dungeon Dwellers: Bloodbite Goblins (2)
- 14095: Neek, Reven Sergeant
These last two already got some spare paint from other minis painting.
Every DM needs wolves. These were bare metal used on the gaming table for far too long!
I've been wanting to paint these for a long time, but was intimidated by the fur.
I finally decided to take the plunge.
I did some research on the web for images for inspiration, as well as the forums.
Here's what I came up with.
First, the individuals.
Here was the inspiration photo from google images for a varied color gray wolf.
This is what I came up with for him. Coincidentally, it ended up very similar to Anne's picture on the Reaper Web Store.
Next, I wanted a run-of-the-mill gray wolf.
Here is an inspiration photo.
And the model.
And, as these are all for our Reign of Winter Adventure Path, I wanted a white wolf!
Here was the inspiration.
I was surprised to find so much cream and not so much white, so I tried to replicate it on the model.
I also tried blue eyes, but they didn't pop quite well enough. And I threw on some snow and cork "rocks."
I wasn't entirely happy with it overall, but it is acceptable.
Finally, here are some group shots.
Overall, I had fun painting these, and knocked all three out in about a week.
That's SUPER fast for me.
