Well done on the figure, you were very true to the art! I've heard that GF9 figures are very finicky, what was it about this one that drove you crazy?

This was probably the best of all the gf9 models i have painted so far. All the parts fit very well and nothing much to trim. no complaints. 

It is the same for any model i work on for a long time, just loses its luster after staring at it for so long.

Thanks!

Pale lichen green base, washed with citadel green shade and highlighted with pale lichen/white for the scales.  The darker green was mostly pine green base and a leaf green /sun yellow mix for highlighting.

I think you did a great job managing a complicated color palette. Nicely done!

A GF9 model that fits together well!?!?!?!  I don't believe that is possible.  I've hated working on their D&D figs for clients - they always need tons of filler and the resin is soooo brittle that it'll crumble if you look at it for too long . . .

 

Beautifully piece though.  The faces are especially vividly done.  Great work.

I dig yours for the bright fur and different shades of green! Seems we had the same idea for the monkey face. LOL 

 

 

 

Nice! What I thought was interesting is that we both did gold trim around the pillars. That was a tough decision for me. I liked the black n grays on yours too. I was thinking a blackish volcanic theme for the next one i do.

lol, yeah I've had necessary parts not fit properly at all whatsoever on some of their models (I'm looking at you Qesnef Ogre Mage) and others that were just a nightmare (cough * spider  queen * cough)

But this guy was a breeze, I was amazed at how everything just slipped into place. Not much for big gaps to fill, mostly just a little greenstuff for where the parts came together. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Yours is more gold, while I went with bronze, but similar for sure. :D 

Thanks! It's what the client wanted, and to stay away from the more red/gold fur.

      Another one for a client of mine completed! He sent me a character illustration as inspiration for the mini. Really like this figure, and may pick him up myself, paint him in full military green for use with my IMEF Troopers!

      This figure is a great load off my Shelf of Shame.
      I wanted to complete it for my friend's 40th birthday, as he was supposed to come back to town for a surprise party.  I never finished it, since he changed his plans and there was no party.  He and I go back to 7th grade, and have gamed together on-and-off for the better part of 25 years.  I've gone back to complete this figure after about a 3 year hiatus.  He is my first real attempt at an NMM weapon and armor.  The challenge with the sword was the spine of the sword is soft not crisp, so getting a straight line was tough.
       
      I asked my friend what his favorite type of character was to play.  His answer: Sword and Board fighter.
      I wanted the figure to resemble my friend: Very pale Caucasian, very light blond short hair.  Also, I wanted our high school colors to figure into the paint scheme: Green and White.
       
      I also like to find old gems from the Reaper store that need some love and new life breathed into them!  Ashlan definitely fits the bill.
       
      So, I present Ashlan Fellthrush, Heroic Paladin.
       

       
      I had dreams at one point of making the suitable looking parts of the sword and tabard-trim into green gems, but gave up on that to get him DONE!.
       

       
      Part of the reason I gave up on this figure for so long was my failure to realize my ambitious goal to paint a freehand gold NMM device on the back to match the one sculpted on the front.  The back felt like it needed something.  I tried a white dragon for a while, like the shield, but didn't like it.  So I repainted the back and tried this gold device.  It came out "good enough" after about the third try, so I moved on.
       

       
      Overall, I'm very pleased with Ashlan.  In know my friend will enjoy it.  He's triple-sealed for gaming goodness.
      Now, I just have to pack him up for a safe trip to Seattle.
       
      Thanks for reading.

      I've been wanting to paint these rat swarms since I got my Bones I shipment.
      However, the base was cut into this jagged shape, so I always delayed painting them as I waited on basing them.
      Finally, I decided to base some with a good heapin' helpin' of sand.  The other two got green stuff treatment to try to blend the base that way.
      One was wood planks, and the other was flagstones.
       
      I tried to emphasize fur/hair in the painting.
      I totally "phoned it in" on the tails, noses and claws.
      I really didn't want to over-spend time on these guys.
      Sorry, I realize I didn't give you a good shot of the skull they are swarming over.

      My most recently complete project is the lovely ladies of Oathsworn Miniature's "Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3" Kickstarter.

      As always, they are a joy to paint.  They have nice, bold details but without being overwrought.  They definitely look like a bunch of starting adventurers!  The theme this time was more exotic races, notably a bunch from "Volo's Guide to Monsters"

      The ladies ascend the mountain:


       

      The Kitsune.  She could be a lightly armored Fighter, a Rogue, or a Ranger.
       

       
       
      The Kenku (or Tengu) Shaman.  Or Wizard.  Or Sorcerer.  Or whatever.  She's got a bone to pick with you!
       

       
      The Kenku or Tengu Rogue.  I went with oranges for them to continue my previous work on the Bones Tengu...which were also dressed in orange to match the official D&D pre-paints.
       

       
       
      The Dragonborn, could be a Fighter or Paladin.  The decision to make her red was regrettable...with that pointy face and dreads, I kept thinking of Ugandan Warrior Knuckles.  Stupid memes getting in the way!


       
       
      Tabaxi or Catfolk.  I tried to go with more of a Ranger color scheme than the intended Rogue.


       
       
      The other Tabaxi/Catfolk from the set.  I liked the intent of this sculpt...she could be a spellcaster, a Monk, or a Bard!


       
       
      The Halfling Knight.  


       
       

       
      Her mount was painted after my own painting gremlin, Hershey.  He would be much smaller to scale, though.
       

       

      The Tiefling Paladin.  I really like the pose of this one, though I questioned the hooves, as 4E and 5E Tieflings of this design have human feet.  I may wind up greenstuffing her into boots at some point.


       
       
      The Firbolg Druid.  As far as I know, this is the only miniature of a 5E style Firbolg.


       
       
      The Minotaur Swashbuckler.  I bet you were expecting a cow joke here.


       
       
      The terrain:

      Quick two hour paint job for a client. Face was a mess, with a mold line running down the right side. Oh well, the client likes him, and looks good on the tabletop. :)
