This is very clever.  Nice job!

 

... What is she holding in her left hand? O.o At first I thought it was some kind of doll, but now it looks like a goblet of blood just starting to spill ...

This is really great. The stairs, the leaves, the bones of the skeletons, the blood spilling from the goblet, the pose of Isabella, I love it all!!

 

If I should mention one tiny thing, it is the handles of the skeletons spears, they look quite new compared to their (beatifully) rusty armor.

 

All in all, this is beyond great!

Many thanks!

 

There's actually another skeleton out the back (let's call him "Igor") who does all the maintainance around the castle. He's just knocked up some new spearshafts ready for battle as the old ones were too rotten. (That's my excuse & I'm sticking to it!  :poke:)

      Last summer Bad Squiddo Games had an eyeblink of a Kickstarter (I think it might have been one week) for a line of Gothic horror minis, called "My Last Sunrise". Annie the Dice Bag Lady specializes in realistic non-objectified female minis from manufacturers worldwide and has a pretty good sense of humor about it.
       
      These are three vampire brides from the assortment. They have a classic Hammer horror look to them. They were introduced in the Kickstarter as "Get married, they said. Best day of your life, they said."
       
      Anyhow, I figured I would paint them up. 
       
      As ever (though I don't think I have mentioned it lately), comments and critiques are most appreciated. I'm always learning and glad to hear other perspectives.
       
      Normally I prime my minis white and wash them with Burnt Umber, a rich, dark brown. But I wanted these to look more chilly so I washed them with a cold grey mixed from Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna. It does not enhance the details as much as the darker Umber.

       

       
      Ultramarine Blue tends to dry with a grainy texture in thin washes.  In passing, I note that this looks like a pretty good crystalline rock texture and would be a fairly fast method for painting statues.
       
      C&C welcome!

      Here is my collection of Zombicide Black Plague Notoriusly Plagued Character volume 1 I've been working on for the past few months.  I now am a bit sadened that I didn't get in on the NPC's 2 as well in the KS.  I did go with anything to fancy.  In fact, I went straight off the artwork.  I left off the blood and gore as well, though now that I got some of the Tamiya Clear Red I think I might slowly begin to bloody these up.  
       
      Lets start with a group shot of the lot.

       
      Now a tease with the frisky one of the bunch.

       
      Don't get to excited she can be found chaperoned with this rather dour lady.

       
      Next up we have a traveler to these parts, who is quite eager to meet you.

       
      His traveling companion is a more on the grim side and keeps his enthusiasm in check.

       
      Lastly we have a gentlemen that is rather irate that his current return customers.  Ah well, there is no pleasing some people

       
      Thanks for any C&C you feel inclined to give.

      Well over Minivember I had high hopes of great accomplishments.  For me that entailed finishing more than one mini, 30 hopefully.  Well, I failed to achieve that.  I did however manage to start and finish another Zombicide mini (more actually, but they will be in another post).  He was a relatively quick paint for me, and with the idea of table top.  I gave the Tamiya Clear Red a try for the blood effects.  I like the effect just not execution.
       
      Well with out furthur fanfare or words and such, is my Zombicide Abomination.

       
      Thanks for any C&C you feel inspired to give.

      Last year PingosHusband, after noodling around Exalted (2nd edition) and World of Darkness rulebooks (Vampire the Masquerade 2nd edition, Werewolf the Apocalypse, Mage the Ascension, etc.), announced that he'd like to run an Exalted game set in the World of Darkness.
       
      We, his friends and loved ones, said “What, are you crazy? Have we not long joked about how unplayable and internally inconsistent the World of Darkness is; how its timeline makes no sense and its rules and worldbuilding are buried and often mutually contradictory; how foolish and suicidally incurious the various groups are regarding each other; and how so many of its many tragic angsty world-destroying problems could be solved if only each isolated group got its head out of its backside and actually talked to one of the others?”
       
      He said, “Hear me out,” and since we have long experience of his keen ability to run entertaining campaigns, we heard him out.
       
      See, PingosHusband has a knack rather like Alan Moore's ability to take unpromising old third rate comic book series and turn them into fascinating multifaceted mythic dynamos, or Neil Gaiman's ability to mine world mythology to create astounding and consistent and multilayered worlds, or James Burke or Kenneth Hite’s ability to take fascinating historical and technological developments and spin them into stories of human interconnectivity or disturbingly deep illuminati conspiracies for game use, respectively.
       
      More than once PingosHusband has taken historical oddments, played “What happens if this is taken seriously and assumed to make sense somehow?” and produced some wonderful story or game setting or world.
       
      (One of them won awards.)
       
      So apparently he did this with Exalted and World of Darkness, getting under the hood, finding the core of what worked and what didn’t, seeing what could be connected to what else and what made sense, what was clearly absurd, what needed tweaking, what could be fun, what couldn’t be possible, why things happened, and who could have done them. He looked keenly at characters, places and situations, saw potential for fun in a campaign, wrote up background, and presented us with an introductory players’ handout.
       
      I’ll get to particulars later. The simple version is that the world looks basically like the World of Darkness, except that all of a sudden a tiny number of people have Exalted with memories of the world of Exalted (“Creation”) and powers derived from it. There are five to begin with (the PCs), although more will come soon enough.
       
      I have to say, this game has so far been tremendous fun. Our group has been playing together for over thirty years and I have rarely seen all of us this excited about a game. Our teenage / adult children are also involved and we have been having vivid family conversations over meals about history, strategy, and characters.
       
      I’ve (of course) been painting up miniatures for the game. I’m having a lot of fun with these too. I’ll put links to Show Off threads when I have them up.
