I decided to start painting up minis for my various PCs

 

-An unidentified Grenadier Halfling fighter (chain & shield) as Lvl 7 Rogue, Magnus Perrywhimple (soon to be con only)

-Mystic Theurge as Lvl 1 Monk/ Lvl 1 Rogue Stede Blackthumb (Acolyte of Candlekeep),  on an acquisition mission to atone for learning and copying ritual magic without permission

-Juliette, as Lvl 1 Half Drow Sorceress, Grz'zilda (the Ghastly Gourmet) who was rescued from Hillsfar and while hiding her heritage is now adventuring.

I've done a few passes at a few things. But not full base coats yet. Photos later.

Stede wears robes that are a base of Creamy Ivory, and his pouch and shoes are made of Snakebite Leather.

Magnus carries a steel shortsword, steel chain, and a steel shield, because he's a professional adventurer, don'tcha know?

Juliette's robe is a lovely mix of Breonne Blue and Spectral Glow. Her skin is a shade of Dark Elf Shadow with a layer of Tanned Skin makeup. Her shoes and pouch are also Snakebite Leather.

All are lined with Brown Liner.

I read the title and wondered why you would want several Personal Computers during Spring...

 

Your version is of course better!

 

Looking forward to see the painted party.

Can you really have too many PCs? I mean you get one for work, one for home, one for gaming . . . :P

Brown leather pants to come for Magnus. Skin & metal highlights too.

Shading not too visible for Grz'zilda's clothes. How do I fix her half-drow skin?  Palomino gold girdle? Hair is dark brown with a lock of white.

Stede has a lot of junk I'm going to try and ignore. My linen recipe is not showing any of the highlights up to linen white. I hope the shadows next do the trick. Anybody know what that hafted weapon on his belt is?

Cool party. What do you think needs fixing for the half drows skin? It could use some deeper shadows and higher highlights but over all, I like the tone. It looks nice with that pretty blue. Palomino gold for the girdle would look nice. For the white on Stede, glaze some of that palamino gold into the shadows and reclaim your highlights. I can't find the tutorial I always reference when doing white...I'll share when I find it. It's a great tutorial.

Stede is wearing linen, so I wasn't planning on it being super bleached. I still haven't done the shade from my usual, which is bone. I may try the palomino mixed in- I have done that before.

I feel like Juliette's legs don't have much definition, so highlighting them realistically  will be weird. I did find a version in show off that I can copy. I'm going to do a wash next then build up... see what kinda shadow needs reclaiming. Things got s bit slopped on when my dollar store go to brush finally died. Just won't repoint.

I see, I hate when detail is soft on minis. So frustrating. I suggest giving them a wash like you planned. See what happens. get yourself a new brush. You deserve it. :poke:

I have plenty of brushes. I pulled one of the good ones off the shelf because I'm going to have to do eyes soon. It's weird that the equivalent to #3+ cheap brush held out longer than all but my best quality brushes. Better point, better snap, bigger belly. Of course, if I was having a bad day with brush control... guaranteed tabletop, but whatever. Mostly I paint for stress relief and to try one new thing.

Paint done this morning.

Magnus is mostly done. I need to fix his base, touch up his skin and face. I'm not sure about eyes, they're about half normally too small.

Everybody has hair now too, and got a flesh wash. Stede's robes look a bit better - not sure how stuff will show up in photo.

No pics because I'm doing more later.

A little bit of work tonight - pics in the morning.

Fixing the weird dirty bits on Stede, doing some more basic coverage (Stede's cudgel and book, Grz'zilda's scroll case and component pouch, and other stuff), highlighting hair, attempting eyes. Magnus is basically done now. I just need to finish up his base.

2 pair of eyes worked out as minor level ups, one pair looks like googly-eyes.

I still don't know what that thing is on Stede's belt... a cudgel? I don't care. I'm painting it metal.

      Conversion post w Sculpt WIP
      WIP post. 
       

       
      This was originally Bones #77202 that I'd ordered a while back and started sculpting on. Had gotten the sculpt finished a couple months ago between other projects, and have slowly been adding paint since. 
       
      He's a bit on the dirty looking sode, which is alright as that's what I was going for. Wanted to give him a trail worn look. Added some more coloration and softened things up more than I had originally planned, but I think it worked out. 
       
      Also, there's a faint detail of blood drops on the front of the base below the Warg's head. As I wanted to add the feeling that they were on the hunt, with the pose and the paint.

      I'm not sure what this is supposed to be; I got it as part of a figure lot on Ebay. Maybe an Otyugh? Maybe something C'thulu-ish? In any case I painted it for the Morihalda Challenge.

      This is an old Grenadier dwarf from their 'Fantasy Warriors' range/game. I initially wanted his eyes facing up towards his axe, but after goofing them up about 342,539 times, I decided to go with what I had.

      While I still need to do his base, I finished of this pretty boy.

      Has anyone picked up some of the new Wizkids Pathfinder Deep Cuts/D&D Marvelous figures?  I have to say that maybe Reaper should be concerned.  They seem to have better detail, they are primed (I know with Bones that doesn't necessarily matter), the plastic seems plenty durable, and the price is comparable if not cheaper.  
       
      All I have done is 2 Displacer Beasts so far (been wanting some for a while and couldn't find anything that was good and/or affordable) and they turned out really nice.  They even came with 2 black disks to use as stands.  Just a flat disk of black plastic but once I put some flock on it they were more than adequate.  Just wanted to know what everyone else thought. 
       
      Anyway also I have a bunch more on order (which means I ordered more Dwarves.....I really don't need more Dwarves..lol.) and will let you know what I think of those once I get them (note prices are Canadian).
