I don’t often do WIP.

I figured I’d start one.

I’m still working toward Reign of Winter Adventure Path appropriate models.  Kord has a Viking vibe.


He’s been trimmed, washed, brown-liner primered.  I removed the glued on piece of his wolf pelt to get at other stuff.  I’ll glue it on later, then green stuff and finish painting.


I’m blocking in basecoats now.  Skin and furs so far.BF556660-ED7F-45D4-8E30-DBA41475520B.thumb.jpeg.edebb7f204825001e8eb405e07b7234c.jpeg081AF60C-90CF-49A9-9DCB-BF118A549E17.thumb.jpeg.00865fb18d20b8e9b55a0e8e8410b6a0.jpeg

Good start!


I mostly use WiPs to keep track of what I've done and what colors I use for situations where I abandon a mini for a while then can't remember what it was I'd done...

That’s a good thought.

I guess I could put colors in the accomplish that.



Gray bits are stone grey.

Skin is Rosy Shadow.

Skirt is Christmas Wreath.

Wraps/Under linens are Khaki Highlight

Mahogany Brown on some of the leather goods.  I wanted some reddish hue to play off the green.


I may change the creamy color of the foot wraps to be more medium brown...

To continue:

Decided on Bronze/Copper for the horns, crossguard/pommel, and a few assorted metal trim.  Based in Tarnished Copper.  That goes on thin, so what you see is 3 coats.


Did the weapon handles and leather belt/straps in Uniform Brown.



I want to paint the rock gray, but that leaves me trying to paint the ground as either grass or snow.  Any ideas?

Good thought.  I don’t have any birch pod debris.  I’ll look for some...

Did change the foot wraps to Uniform Brown, as you can see in prior photo.


Now, the beard is based in Auburn Shadow.


The rock is Stone Grey.

The base grass is Christmas Wreath.

Added another coat of skin tone.




Basecoats are done.  On to the wash/glaze step.

Thank you both.


Glazes/Washes done.

Armor / Fur got Reaper Black Wash.

Skin and Copper got GW Reikland Flesh Shade.

Leather stuff got GW Agrax Earthshade.

Skirt and Grass got GW Biel-Tan Green.

Rock got all of the above.





Next, highlighting/layering.

I’ll start with the skin, which forces me to decide how to address his half-hidden beady little eyes!

      So while I've been painting some figures, my delightfully talented wife has been indulging her artistic streak.  Basically she saw my feeble attempts, said "hold my tea!" and proceeded to give me a much needed humility lesson : )
      While I've taught her everything I know, I in no way have taught her everything she knows... and it shows a bit, especially with her freehand : )
      77501: Minotaur
      He's big, he's blue, and he's coming to a labyrinth near you!

      77022: Michelle, Female Human Ranger
      I just adore the shading & freehand on her cloak.

      77441: Ostarzha, Elf Cleric
      The freehand on this is very subtle and hard to see, but utterly gorgeous.

      Translucent Green Weapon Sprue
      And while it doesn't really fit here, I can't see myself making a separate topic for it.  Here's one of the green weapon sprue weapons I painted up with Tamiya Clear Green on the blade & pommel.
      Whosoever pulls this sword from this lump of blue "granite" will be the Queen of the Kingdom!

      This weekend I painted up half the bones Familiars 1 set—the wolf, bat, and cat—as part of my plan to make it through some of my backlog. It’s been a really rewarding and fun set to paint, none of the minis take long, and despite the most of the figures being tiny the easy access to reference material made them pretty straight forward.

      Painted Amiri up as a Goliath barbarian.

      Grabbed this mini because I wanted to try out the Golden skin triad. I've also been reading and watching a bunch of painting tutorials and wanted to do a better job than my usual slop and smear. Pretty happy with how she turned out but disappointed somewhat with the metal on the weapons and her hair. Didn't realise you can't see her eyes very good in the photo until now but I even did a decent job on them. Would be happy to get any feedback on how to improve her hair and weapons. Someday I need to get some makeup tips too because whenever I try to do it on my lady's they look like a drunken nightmare.

      I started a second first giant queen recently. I've done a fair amount of work on her so far but still have a long way to go.
