Wow. I never expected to be so well received on a site that hosts so many amazing painters. Hell, I'm upper-level-amateur at best. Thanks!


The hair is GW's Shining Gold (now Gehenna's Gold) shaded with a wash-consistency burnt sepia, and highlighted up to GW's Burnished Gold (now Auric Armor Gold). The armor bits, jewelry, and mace body are the same but with a GW Mithril Silver (now Runefang Steel) 'ting' added for extra highlight.


And now it's off to start on the Nature Spirit? Wood Golem? What is he, anyways?


You'll find out this site is very friendly and welcoming to beginners (like myself) even when you ask the same set of questions over and over (hehe...oops).


I am digging the colors on your giantess. Looks like two colors that accentuate well.

Growth mushroom and fireball flower from Mario?


I really like the elemental. I need to purchase one of these.

Sadly, that base almost went in the trash instead of under a mini. It was a leftover from an experiment with different glues for basing. That one was done with the expanding-type Gorilla Glue. Anyhoo...


Here's another three-or-so hours gone:

And about 45 minutes of drybrushing:

And I've got a tone more to do, but nothing really started yet.


As always, C&C welcome.

So, I have some other minis to show. I started and finished these three today.

...and a couple of Rackham minis I picked up back in the day, who were in desperate need of a re-paint:

I don't remember there being any naughty parts on the untransformed version. Nice minis, nonetheless.


There aren't, but it got pulled anyway. No biggie, here are the links to the NSFW pics (and the one that isn't):

One for today:


I wanted his armor to be military-esque...dull, non-reflective. Minimal highlighting, lots of shadows. I applied a coat of matte sealer before I snapped the photos, but I'm still not sure why it's so shiny.

"All right, sweethearts, what are you waiting for? Breakfast in bed? Another glorious day in the Corps! A day in the Marine Corps is like a day on the farm. Every meal's a banquet! Every paycheck a fortune! Every formation a parade! I LOVE the Corps!"

      I have finally started working on my many Bones minis. This first one is 773000 Antipaladin by Bobby Jackson. It is mostly an experimental/ practice piece. I am not completely happy with my mold line removal, but in this case I am not going to worry about it too much. Mostly it is to get me acquainted with working with Bones minis and to experiment with my new Scale 75 metallic paints. I am not happy with all of the photos, my old photo setup got broken and I haven't gotten it replaced yet and just as I was taking these pictures one of my light bulbs went out and I don't have a replacement. Should be able to get better pics once I get a new bulb.
      First off I base coated the cape with Nightmare Black. This was a new paint purchase and I wanted to play with it. Really like this color.
      Next I used Faded black to Undercoat the skulls on the armor. I'm planning to do these in a metallic steel. Used Tanned skin as a base coat on his head.
      Next came Ultramarine Shadow for the armor undercoat. I really like this color for this as I am going to do the majority of the armor in a dark blue steel tone. The only down side is that the blue colors are fairly transparent and so take several coats to get good coverage.
      Looks like I am having some chipping issues, but I think I have that issue solved. Hope to get some more work done on him soon if life doesn't make me do other things first

      I love this figure.
      Not so much the bendy weapons, but I straightened them out.
      They have bent back a little (Sword).

      I did a WIP on him.  Thanks for the encouragement along the way.
      He is another for our Reign of Winter Adventure Path.  My DM said "Vikings."  Kord has that vibe for sure.

      I tried to paint the base like grass.
      The hardest part was the nmm on the axe, and trying to get the runes to show up on the sword.  It's a very irregular axe shape, so it was tough to figure out how to do it.
      My green stuff patch job on the wolf pelt was not the greatest, but it is decent enough camouflage.
      The second-hardest part of the figure to me was figuring out what parts of the pelt were what.  What is tail? What are legs?  I did my best.
      Overall, I'm pleased with him.  He seems like such a bad-a$$.
      As for the pics, iPhone seems to be good for far away, but really "blobby" for up close.  Maybe it is suffering from zoom.
      C&C Welcome.

      First up is Terezinya, Bonepander Wizard (Reaper 77173).  She had been sitting on my paint desk partially painted for so long that her base got dusty, oops.  She always gave me a pirate wibe, hence the plank base.

      Nienna, Female Elf Ranger (Reaper 77091) is another one that sat partially painted for a really long time.  All that green, how do I paint all her knickknacks in an interesting way without making her stand out in forest?  Finally just brute forced it to get her done.

      Trista, the White Wolf (Reaper 77094), she didn't languish as long as the other two, but like normal I got stuck on deciding on colors for all the details.  But with 3 off the desk of shame I can start on something new!

      Here are the pictures of the Grudge all finished. While there were times that I hated how things looked, in the end I am extremely happy with how he turned out.

      In response to a local club challenge, I painted this dwarf in 3 colors chosen by a computer program.
      written by @SirLarpsAlot
      Golden Yelllow, Winter Blue and Leather Brown + B&W 
      edit, I do need to fix that eye...
