Today, I'm not feeling working on my main ReaperCon project for the diorama so I figured to stay productive and still do something I'll go ahead and start a WIP thread for some tabletop to tabletop+ painted figures of mounts and/or animal companions for the characters in my D&D game.

 

First off I'm doing these three bones figures: animal companion brown bear (Jim), animal companion black panther (Alex), and Phantasmal blue panther mount (Bagheera). These are for the monk/ranger character in my D&D 'Broken Gods' game.

I will use some green stuff to even out and blend into the bones broccoli bases, the bigger panther will get a green stuff made saddle and harness. 

 

After I'm done with these three:

  • I will paint up a golden lion (the companion to the panther figure from bones 3 I believe)
  • Find a fox figure big enough to be a mount - will need to be about 1 1/2 to 2 inches long.
  • Acquire a nightmare figure for a mount or modify a horse or unicorn

Great, looking forward to seeing what you will come up with.

 

A few days ago I stumbled upon a video sequence of Vin Diesel and Laura Bailey playing DnD with a few others. Since then I cannot see this abbreviation without thinking that the game should be renamed Dungeons and Diesel.

A bit more work I did before dinner, all the green stuff work done.

So far, a fun little project with no stress. Just doing it for fun and not for any kind of contests here, means I can play around a bit more and figure it out as I go.

I've been doing a lot of tabletop stuff for the same reason.  No pressure, and it has been helping improve my brush control.  ^_^ 

 

It's nice and relaxing to me.

 

This is the 2nd saddle I've done, the first was a skeleton on a large spider about 2 years ago. I'm pretty happy with how it came out. Right now I'm working with the liners to prime/basecoat the figures. Really, I want to spend probably another hour or two on the group and call them good. I'll be doing dry-brushing soon and a bit of freehand on the big panther.

Looking good so far!

 

As for the Nightmare, maybe use the Reaper Storm Steed?

I painted it as a Nightmare years ago.

You could leave the wings of and make a saddle.

Started a couple more mounts: a horse from one of Tre’s kickstarters which will be painted up as a nightmare. The lion I added a saddle to. 

 

The others will get more paint here soon. They are pretty close to being done.

      These mini's are sooooo tiny! AND adorable!! 
       
      I did have some trouble really picking out details on the Fairy and the one I am referring to as "Ragdoll". The soft edges were a little confusing at first and the way the Fairy's body is positioned, it was hard to tell what was leg or clothing! lol But I looked on google to get some reference from others that had already tackled these. That was super helpful! 
      After that I had painted these 3 up and set em aside for a while and worked on other things, not really sure what I wanted to do with them.

      Then a couple weeks ago I went on a Youtube binge watching soooo mannny videos about basing and came up with some cool ideas! (Stay tuned for more on that!) 
      While cleaning up my bulletin board, a pushpin broke. The metal part, right off. I almost tossed it out, but I have a problem holding onto anything that might be useful later lol. But then I immediately imagined it as a spool of thread. *sketch idea, hold for later* Then I just had to figure out what mini to use and my husband suggested the ragdoll, I mean she is stitched together so ya! 
       
      Then I did the Treant, those yellow bits on his base are foraged pieces of the invasive plant Virginia Creeper. We have some growing on our shed and as I was clearing it away I noticed how cool the little feets from their vines they use to climb look, so I snipped a ton of em, dried em out and hold onto them for neat terrain. These ones I chose to paint this yellow tone to accent the tree, without taking away or distracting from it! 
       
      Lastly, was the fairy, I just felt her jamming out on top of a little pile of rocks would be cute lol. So I used cork as stone and little bits of clump foliage and some other cork stone and flock to decorate.
       
      Thanks for looking everyone! C&C always welcome!

      Howdy,
       
          It's not my place to question what bear does or does not do in the woods...
       

       
      Kev!
      P.s. But it DOES make a sound, though...

      I wanted to share this since I did not find many of these already painted when looking for reference photos, maybe it can help someone else! 
      I went super bold with this guy, as I tend to do lol! The pictures don't really show how gross those pustules are though lol!  They have a bit of nurgle's rot on them as well. 
       
      The basing was done with mostly natural elements! A real lichen laden stick, seed pods, fern leaves, along with some Army Painter Battlefields Grass Green and  Battlefield Rocks, as well as some basic
      clump foliage for filler! 
      Does anyone like to use natural materials for basing!? 
       
      C&C welcome! Thanks for looking!

      This is my first post here!  I have been encouraged for a while to join the forums and share some of the mini's that I have painted. I have been painting for many years dabbling in many styles and mediums. I've gotten more serious about my mini work the last couple years though. 
      I was hesitant to share my work, but figured, "What the heck! Why not!"
       
      I decided to start with this model as it is one of my favorites to paint and I just love glitter, man! 
      I painted this up for my first con last fall and it was actually purchased by my bestie,  he then requested I add the glitter (to match another halfling mini I did for him.) 
      This is now his alternate ego character (he is the DM lol), which in his campaign ge had only revealed himself to be a helpful travelling halfling wizard until this guy was done. Then it was revealed he was a celestial dragon all along and the main adversary...or something like that lol! 
       
      Please be honest and feel free to C&C! Ultimately I know the owner loves it, but I would love to see what others think!! 
      And thanks for welcoming me into this community!
      Oh, and as I am sure you guessed, I did get the Bones 3 Kickstarter so, please feel free to request I share any other minis I might have painted already or will paint :)
