I particularly like the eyes and the frost on his tail feet and underbelly. Nice job.

It looks very impressive. I also like the frosty hair under its body and tail. What did you use for the snow?

Love the snow and eyes and you pulled off the black fur.

 

The one thing is you have blood on the snow but I don't see blood on its maw.

the camera angle doesn't show it but the fur under his chin is soaked in it.

Very well done. Usually blood doesn't work for me on a model but you pulled it off.

an interesting note for y'all....

 

this casting did NOT include the missing ear. that wasn't a conversion that was how I got him. I thought it looked appropriate for what i was painting and went with it.

I think you really did nail the bloody snow appearance, and I can see the blood around the maw..I think it's just our favorite camera fu issue.

I like the way you've tied the miniature into it's environment (read, another vote for the frost - Consider this idea duly stolen)

 

And yes, blood on the teeth, blood on it's ruff, blood on the snow. . . . It would be easy for this much blood to look overdone and cartoonish, but you've managed to pull it off. How did you apply the blood to the snow?

I might put up a different angel so the base can be seen better as there is a bit of leftover someone right were the majority of the mess is.

How did you apply the blood to the snow?

I go through the whole basing process:

1) Glue Cujo to a cavalry base (the fact i had to say cavalry should give you an idea of his size btw).

2) Green-stuff around Cujo's broccoli base to even it out. Push some dead things, Mikey, dead things into the greenstuff (two skulls and a rib cage).

3) Use a mixture of Elmers Glue-All (generic PVA glue) and white deco sand to add texture to the green-stuff.

4) Paint the entire base with Astronomican Grey. Use a slightly watered down Scab Red on the rib cage and create the 'flow' out from it letting it soak into the sand texture. Attempt futilely to add some additional detail to the rib cage.

5) Apply way too much PVA to everything but the rib cage. Sadly the skulls are long lost at this point but it’s comforting knowing they are their anyway.

6) Stuff model into tray with EE snow basing material (which their own retail minion tried to warn me awayfrom btw). Unfortunately the result looks BLUE instead of white. Wtf??

7) Use watered down Blood Red over the top of the snow where the underblood is. The brightness is a little much but before I mess this up any further…

8) Google “bloody snow” and find that I did pretty good, I just need to darken it a bit where the mess is the thickest.

9) Use watered down white to wash the snow basing to make it look like snow. No, I am not joking.

10) Spray with satin polyurethane sealant, let dry for 24 hours, spray with generic matt acrylic sealant to take the shine off.

That looks great! I think I may have to steal the idea for an old mini that needs touching up.

Mm-hm.

 

But remember; Only a hack borrows other peoples ideas.

      Sent this out about 3 weeks ago. Tracking said received so posting photos here. Wish my photos picked up the greenish ghoul skin tones better as it appears to blend with the bone tones but looks a bit better in person.  Also there is dirt / grit on the skeleton that didn't pick up well either.  Nonetheless, I was fairly pleased.

      So, this may seem to be an odd question, and it probably is. In terms of standard fantasy RPGs like D&D, AD&D, Pathfinder, and OSR what really differentiates a zombie from a skeleton in terms of undeath? Is it just that it has skin where a skeleton does not. So if a zombie loses all of its skin does it then become a skeleton? A variant zombie?

      WHAT IS THIS KICKSTARTER ABOUT?
      This KickStarter is a joint venture between Royal Art Games and Impact! Miniatures to bring two incredible looking metal Fantasy Football teams from Rolljordan into affordable resin for about half the price of the metal teams to give more gamers the opportunity to own these great models. The resin versions of these models will be molded from the re-touched masters that Rolljordan produced to make this a better more pitch-worthy team than when it was first released. The miniatures will be offered in Standard team which have everything you need to have a full team and Deluxe versions that will give you sideline characters (like cheerleaders) and star players.

      The KickStarter is bringing the Necro Undead and Volmarian Dwarf teams into resin. The KickStarter is also offering the teams from the last joint venture KickStarter at great prices.

      Here are the team and pack selections for the KickStater.



      The Deluxe team is the Standard team plus this Deluxe pack





      The Deluxe team is the Standard team plus this Deluxe pack





      The Deluxe team is the Standard team plus this Deluxe pack





      The Deluxe team is the Standard team plus this Deluxe pack






      The miniatures in the four teams are the new resin that Impact! started using this year that is stronger and able to be painted much easier than our past resin. The miniatures all come with bases and are provided unpainted. The miniatures will require light clean up and some assembly (although many of the models are one piece). Impact! Miniatures has created several KickStarters and delivered to all backers on all our previous KickStarters so bid with confidence. We are keeping this KickStarter small and focused so that we can quickly produce the teams and get them shipped out on time. NOTE on shipping: Shipping options are displayed when you pledge for a reward. Shipping is free to the USA, $5 to Canada and $10 to all other locations.

      Hi all, after much lurking I've decided to post some of my minis  I technically posted once before but I just realized looking at the old post that it was over a year ago!
      I'm really going to have to pick up my painting rate given that another bones pledge is about to be delivered!  
      So I can definitely tell I like painting the bad guys better than the PC characters, probably due to spending too much time DMing. Anyway, here's some recent ones I painted. As always feedback is appreciated!
       
      First a couple beastmen from the Warlord line:

       
      How about a golem and some undead as tomb guardians? I diced up a skeleton into the base of the bone fiend too. You can kind of see the boot.

       
      I have painted some character figures as well recently. Here's a few Elves with an Halfling. I need to work on my faces more though. Humanoid faces are so much flatter than monsters'. Anyone have any tips for varying humanoid flesh or adding details to faces that that sculp might not define well? Thanks! Much appreciated!

      I remember that the first Imbrian Arts KS had a lot of issues and delays, but I don't know whether it was eventually sorted out or not so if any previous backers have any info it would be worth speaking up.
       
      The minis look good though
