This was my entry for the Reaper Fan Facebook Page Paint Your Giants Contest.
This is the biggest thing I ever painted not on a canvas.
The last time I entered one of these, I felt like it would have done better if the base told more of a story, so that is what I tried to achieve with this one.
I wanted it to portray REVENGE!
The Jarl had his left eye gouged out by a young upstart white dragon. He healed, regrouped, and hunted down the dragon to enact his revenge.
I hope you like it.
The final results have now been posted. He placed 4th behind some mind-blowing work.
I wanted some orange on the model to play against the blue skin, for color theory.
Originally, it was going to be glowing runes on the rock and skulls, but I abandoned that for the sake of time/completion.
I settled with orange tones in the leather.
I wasn't really sure how to get the TMM of the crown to look like a gouge, or how to make his blue skin look like a scar.
I'm not entirely sold on the result, but I'm sure I'll try again some day on a different model.
The Monster Manual suggests blue skin with white/gray/dirty blonde hair is the usual coloration. I tried to go to full white for the highlights of the face to make it the focal point.
I wanted him to look like he was wearing a polar bear pelt, and that all the fur trim was also polar bear.
I tried to make it look a little muddy on the bottom, and on his shoes.
This was how I wanted to weather the inside of the bear skin, to make it look like it had that dried cracked appearance. Not sure how well it shows up in the picture.
These were some WIP shots. The black and white was to figure out how to highlight the sword.
I wanted the sword and stone items to look like shiny flint. I hit the sword and most of the other stone items with high gloss varnish to help sell the effect.
The front and back of the sword.
Finally, some more details of the base and the white dragon victim.
I wanted to base the dragon as a purple in the recesses, similar to the effect going on on the cover of Hoard of the Dragon Queen module.
This was the BONES Temple Dragon I sacrificed. He is smaller, but his tongue sticks out perfectly to sell the dead dragon effect. And he's not as expensive to replace as Deathsleet!
I pained his eyes half-rolled into his head to complete the idea. I tried to freehand some anatomy on there: vertebral body, muscle groups, esophagus, carotid arteries/jugular veins.
I also tried to be accurate with the blood spray coming from both arteries, and didn't want to go too crazy with the gore. Finally, I wanted it to look like his hot blood had melted some of the snow.
Overall, this was a wild ride. The early part of the contest saw him at #2. Then he gave up some ground and sat at #3 for a long time.
Then another Frost Giant (Queen) made a great surge at the end to unseat me out of #3 into 4th place.
To be honest, there were so many awesome paint jobs, I'm just humbled and honored to be in the top 20.
Thanks for looking.
9th gate Miniatures presents Collection of Mysterious Miniature Models of Pirates Busts Kickstarter:
Lots of busts based on a certain Disney Pirate movie...
Cerberus Studios Logo Who are we?
Hello and welcome to our Kickstarter.
We are a small UK miniature design studio born out of a love for all things fantasy and the spark of an idea. We wanted to create a world with a wealth of characters and storylines that immerse and captivate you... so for the last year we have been working on bringing the first of a large range of miniatures/characters to life.
We have been completely self funded to get to this point and will aim to move forward with the money raised to deliver our next selection of characters and beasts. It is our intention, with your help, to use any raised funds towards 3D printing, casting, packaging and the distribution of this range.
The profits will go towards the realisation of a strong character cast, each developing into their own unique part in our story and becoming miniatures in their own right.
If the kickstarter goes beyond our expectations we will expand, creating new miniatures, game designs, and employ more artists to help realise our world and bring it to you.
Our World and Characters
As with any good story you need heroes and villains and that's exactly where we started.
All of these characters form the introductory model range to our story and miniature line up.
Character Cast From left to right:
The Veiled Emissary Lazarus The Kyrios The Slaver The Miniatures:
Each of our cast are conceptualised and developed, blending backgrounds and storylines to link our characters. Using a talented team of artists, the artwork and 3D renders are created to build the foundation of the miniature we present to you.
Each of our designs is prototyped using 3D print technology, allowing us to have highly detailed moulds for the resin miniatures that we hope you will enjoy.

Corvus Corax Miniatures is a small hobby project created in 2013. Since then, I have had three projects successfully funded on Kickstarter and all have been fully delivered on time without any delays. The feedback from the backers have only been positive.
The Funding Goal is for 50,000 SEK (Swedish Crown) which equals aprox. $5,700, €4,800 or £4,300 (exchange rates may vary, please check your current ones).
The goal of this project is to attempt to raise funds for the production of totally 12 miniatures; six for the Clansmen of Caer Loch and six for the Sons of Yetl Black. The miniatures will be cast in high quality, non-toxic, resin. The scale of the miniatures are 35 mm (measuring to the eyes in a standing, straight pose, although some characters can be slightly larger because they are supposed to be large characters).
The miniatures have already been sculpted and pre-production resin casts have been completed and approved for final production if the funding is reached. A successful project here will help me be able to pay for the resin casting, and it will help me to kickstart the miniature range and expand it even further!
you can also pick up stuff from the previous project
Typically, the estimated shipping cost break down as following (however, note that this is a rough estimation, and that the shipping cost will be based on the weight of each package, which might differ depending on which miniatures and how many you choose to select). The following is only ESTIMATED and does not mean that it is final.
•1-4 miniatures: €5
•5-12 miniatures: €10
•13+ miniatures: €15
This does NOT include tracking. If you want to include tracking (recommended letter) that will cost an extra €10 in addition to the shipping cost (for example, the estimated shipping cost for 12 miniatures with tracking would end up at €20). The insurance for recommended letter is at max value of 2,000 SEK.
I've backed and got the minis from all of the previous project and have been delighted with them

So, I have just finished with the prep for Mr. Dodgeson from the Infamy Collectables KS. I loved the vibe from him. He's my first 54mm model...so please, make comments! I'd love constructive criticism, as always.
He's also my first resin piece, and I haven't primed him yet because I don't know whether or not I should. Just finished the base, so I'm going to let that harden and dry before I get started with the painting.
