Hey all!


It's been a bit since I've been able to paint up anything. I started back to school and between that, the requisite homework accompanying it, and working (as well as trying to make time to see people and sleep somewhere in there) my painting has fallen by the wayside. I've had a little more freetime that I didn't spend doing other things here lately though, and one of the beneficiaries of that was Goldar here.


I (like I'm sure others) envisioned him as a D&D goliath. I considered trying to freehand some tattoos on him, but I was too scared to try it and just left him as-is. Maybe one day I'll make an attempt. Sorry for the less-than-stellar photos here. Did them with my phone under a kitchen light (not the light I paint by -- but close).

Looks good! I think however the white background have made the mini much darker then it actually is hence harder to see details of the mini.

Thanks. Yeah, I'm not sure what else to try. I'm working with a pretty minimal setup, being limited to the camera on my phone. I'm open to suggestions for a better alternative!

Good job, hard to really see the details, but it looks like you do need more highlighting in order to really make it pop.

Perhaps using a darker gray or brown backgorund would help? I am not too good with photos but I use gray resin dungeon tiles to take my pictures. That as well as two table lamps and a samsung galaxy s2.

      I finally decided to call her finished.  Sana is, as usual from Hasslefree Miniatures, a great sculpt.  I really enjoyed painting her.  Hope you enjoy my paint work on this figure.

      Her WIP is here.

      Not as crazy about these as the wizards. Not a big fan of painting metal. Oh well, they turned out fine for table top. Her nose doesn't show up very well in the photos. Her metal bikini top reminds me of disco balls haha!
      I will have to get up early in the morning and try and get the last two finished before game time. Ugh! It is almost 2:30 am here.

      I'm playing a half-orc warpriest in a Pathfinder game who uses a huge ol' axe. I figured this would be a pretty good mini for him.

      Base was made with GW Agrellan earth with some Vallejo pigments on it to give it some better color.

      I used rattlesnake leather as his base skin color, with a wash of dark elf shadow and highlighted with green ochre.

      I went with red hair, because why not? Reaper red hair triad.

      Yup another project, as if I didn't have enough on my hands.
      This will take a while, but I will start again.
      A few decades ago ( before I roamed this Forum) I created a Barbarian Army with Animal allies.
      I sold it and all I have left are these tiny pics that show only part of it.
      Also, this was decades ago so I didn't paint as well as I do today ( or at least I think so)
      Here are the old pics as appetizers, I will soon start the new army.
