The Eurythmics' lyrics came to mind immediately: "Don't mess with a missionary man!"


Well the missionary man / He's got god on his side.
He's got the saints and apostles / Backin' up from behind.
Black eyed looks / From those bible books.
He's a man with a mission / Got a serious mind.

He looks like a Phil Foglio character with that expression and those eyes.

He looks like a more zealous member of Imus' First Church of the Gooey Death & Discount House of Worship. His WONDERFULLY expressive face make the miniature. Your brushwork & basing are OUTSTANDING. VERY WELL DONE!

That's awesome!  Is this a Reaper fig, or one you found on the melt table?  I'd love to find a copy of him.


This is a Reaper mini, although it doesn't look like he's currently available (or even showing up in the store).  He's resin, which probably cause supply-chain issues for them.

Now that's a real fire and brimstone preacher!


Very good work on him; especially the crazy eyes.

      This was my PC in the D&D campaign I played in last year.

      The GM said we needed a nosferatu, so here we are.
      This is Reaper's 02867: Matthias the Twisted, a gnarly rattish vampire.
      All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
      This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.
      (I have to remember that I experimented with a cold blue-grey wash on some vampire figures that avoided all the nice warm undertones.)


      I paint vampires with stark white skin, shaded with flat greys mixed from Titanium White and Carbon Black. This is almost the only time I ever use such a simple mix for greys.
      The first layer is a thinned white (blodginess is the underpainting showing through).

      Steps in shading:

      03821: Half Orc Merchant
      I saw this guy and all I could think of was a random merchant walking between towns trying to stop you before you go to town and buy his wares. He might even have a quest or two at some point. 
      The first photo is the base work I did on him. These is a VERY heavy miniature. I decided to keep him attached and just sculpt a base around his to blend. There will be grass and what not at the end which will blend things even better. I primed this chap then started working on his back pack and decided I should stop and do the face since it is usually the hardest point for me. It came out well and I may tweak it a be by the end. I wanted him to look like a "Fancy man" trying to get your attention and putting his best face forward to sell his wares. HA! The back pack coloration is inspired by the Legend of Zelda Breath of the wild treasure chest I saw online; dark brown with gold trim. Also in this picture you can see the rest of the base. I wanted to portray him possibly breaking over a direction sign (to the town) so you will ask him then he would offer his wares.

      This is Reaper's 03681: Nazera Bloodraven, Vampire.
      I love her sculptural forms.  Whichever way she is turned, there is some interesting movement going on.  Bobby Jackson did a lovely job sculpting her.
      I used iridescent interference blues and violets on her armor.  I am thinking about discussing how I paint reds.

      I actually bought 01589: Father Christmas two years ago, but I hadn't thought to slap paint on him until now. As I'm done teaching this semester, I had time to prime and paint this guy earlier this afternoon. Took me maybe three hours, which has gotta be some kind of personal best. I did chicken out on his eyes though. My brushes aren't super great and I didn't trust myself not to screw up the eyes/his face, so I didn't try them.
