This year is the year of giving miniatures as birthday gifts to the friends I game with. One of these fine fellows--my oldest and dearest friend--has a birthday in a couple weeks. He loves magic-users and is obsessed with Harry Potter, so I painted up a 25th anniversary Domur as a classic "Gandalf the Grey" style wizard for his present:

Tried to layer the flames to give some interesting and pleasing texture. Let me know how I did.

Also, given his love for all things Potter, I did my best to modify Domur's spellbook to a more familiar book cover...

I'm actually surprised I could keep the brush steady enough for it to come across at all similar, to be honest.

      I got a camera to take better pictures of some of the miniatures I've been painting. I hope my GM can use them!

      Among my first finished minis of 2019 (finished in, some started...well, this century), a lot didn't fit into any category.  Here's the random ones.

      The Ladies (mostly Reaper) 
       
      60036: Visbaronetess Delour Aulamaxa

       
      03845: Mina Splinterheart - River Widows Captain
       

       
       
      07012: Dungeon Dwellers: Caerindra Thistlemoor
       

       
       
      03061: Anushka, Female Fighter
       

       
      I now realize this is a Warmachine Pirate, not Reaper...but she snuck into the group shot already!
       

       
       
      The Jason Wiebe tribute miniature, "Johann Rumbleguts".  I only noticed the missing part of the base in the photos...time for new glasses.


       
       
      50268: Bill Foster, Lumberjack

       
       
      A very strange miniature, 02044: Cadwalon.  He's supposedly an ugly human but he's Halfling sized!


       
       
      And trailing far behind with all the equipment for these weirdos, the simple Pack Mule

      All the information you need should be here.

      As usual, the new format holds a "hard mode" challenge!

      January and February 2019

      Your challenge is: 8!

      Bonus Challenge: The First!
      Finished - not perfect! Paint 4 minis from your 'shelf of shame."  A lot of our minis tend to end up there for a myraid of reasons - but a common one is 'can't get it to look just right" Don't get hung up on perfection - most models can be re-purchased again later

      Bonus Challenge: The Second!
      Bringing back a favorite for whatever absurd reason - Fingerpaint February! Paint a non-object/non-terrain miniature using only your own fingers. The exception is that priming and sealing may be done with a brush/airbrush/can/etc

      Hard Mode Challenge!
      Since most of us are in the winter season, and appropriately chilly, take a nod to the Greyhawk setting and the Land of Black Ice. A region of the world covered in black-blue ice. This inhospitable land is often haunted by arctic terrors, black-skinned trolls, and blue-furred bugbears among others. Your challenge is to paint an arctic terror (bonus points if it's a black-skinned troll or blue-furred bugbear) based on this 'sheet of black-blue ice.' Crackle medium may be very helpful for this. The more inhospitable, dark and dreary, the better!

      As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!
