That dress turned out nice. I didn't notice it in your wip, but the effect on the top of thevstaff is really cool.

The latest of your Lady Vampires has reached new heights of loveliness, a BEAUTIFULLY  painted creation. VERY WELL DONE!

Thanks for the WiP, I'm stealing the velvet principles for the next noble I paint.

 

She is truly gorgeous.

 

"Ventrue" captain, indeed. :lol:

You really nailed the velvet effect.  The color lends a spooky effect.  Seconds on the effect on the staff, a really cool idea!

As always, so impressed by the work you do. Everything about that piece is spot on.

BTW are those flasks of blood on her belt?

Thanks! For a while I was looking at the staff top wondering what to do about it.

Ventrue was the wealthy house, right?

 

Looks great as always!

 

I think so. Mostly it was a cheap "Vampire: The Masquerade" joke. And thanks.

Really, like the the gem-crusted hem.

 

I've had fun painting illusionistic gems.

Very nicely done. I may "borrow" the idea for velvets as well...

 

 

Certainly! The more the merrier!

Yeah, they were the resource heavy clan IIRC. Been a long time since I've even thought much about that game. Good times, but I doubt it aged well, thematically. Perfect for the mid to late 90s though.

"not all female vampires hang around graveyards in unlikely and suspicious states of undress."

Love this quote! I had a lot of difficulty finding an appropriatly dressed female vampire for my own campaign.

 

She is very beautiful! I especially like her eyes, they bing a lot of life (or unlife :poke:) to the miniature.

      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.
      C&C Welcome.

      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.

      Every DM needs wolves.  These were bare metal used on the gaming table for far too long!
      I've been wanting to paint these for a long time, but was intimidated by the fur.
      I finally decided to take the plunge.
      I did some research on the web for images for inspiration, as well as the forums.
      Here's what I came up with.
       
      C&C Welcome.
       
      First, the individuals.
      Here was the inspiration photo from google images for a varied color gray wolf.

       
      This is what I came up with for him.  Coincidentally, it ended up very similar to Anne's picture on the Reaper Web Store.

       
       
      Next, I wanted a run-of-the-mill gray wolf.
      Here is an inspiration photo.

       
      And the model.
       

       
      And, as these are all for our Reign of Winter Adventure Path, I wanted a white wolf!
       
      Here was the inspiration.
       


      I was surprised to find so much cream and not so much white, so I tried to replicate it on the model.
      I also tried blue eyes, but they didn't pop quite well enough.  And I threw on some snow and cork "rocks."
      I wasn't entirely happy with it overall, but it is acceptable.
       

       
      Finally, here are some group shots.
      Overall, I had fun painting these, and knocked all three out in about a week.
      That's SUPER fast for me.

      This is Hasslefree's HFA180, Monique, part of a group of modern adventurers I've been working on.
       
      There is no WIP thread.

      So back to reposting my minis after the account crash.
       
      This is Freebooter winged Vampire Raven, sh swoops down from this ruin to attack Hasslefree's Gen.
      I removed Gen's horns, I wanted her to look more human.
       
      Gen's pics are linked cause, nude...mammal parts,
       
      I like the wings, but overall I'm not so proud of this.
      Around this time ( years ago) I noticed my eyesight getting worse.
      Nowadays I use a visor.
