  1. With all the black on the model, contrasted by the stark white hair, this was very difficult to photograph. I need to dig up a good mid-grey backdrop for something like this. edit 12/15/13: new pics! Damn that speck of dust on the shoulder. I'll take another round of pics once I get a better backdrop. The blacks really do go right to Pure Black and the hair has some interesting blue shadows that are pretty much lost. I think I'm also hobbled a bit by my ancient camera, the dern thing is 8 years old now! I'm quite happy with how it came out overall. I feel my gold

  3. Picked up this set a few years ago from Splintered Light. It was called "fantasy villagers" or something unmemorable. You literary types might be able to figure it out. :) From left to right: Mr Rabbit, Mr Mole, Mr Toad, Mr Badger, and Mr Rat.

  6. I have been painting for 7ish years now and have a back catalogue of things I have painted. Here I will start posting as I now have a reasonably effective place to shoot photos and a half decent camera. First up, two of my favorites. Tolan, male Druid used as my PC, the Eladrin druid, Taranis Nailo. And my WotC Umber Hulk, one of my all-time favourite critters.

  7. And here's the Taipan to round out the set - these guys were great to paint, I really understand why everyone is going the big worm, snake like creatures are fun and you can be really different with their colouring. And all three snakey fellows together.

  8. For starters, we would like to thank Reaper for their generous donation for our troop’s, Learn to Paint Minis, a look at a new hobby. Thank you, Reaper. Our Troop is a small troop of six boys between the ages of 14 and 17. For the month of February, they decided to look at a hobby and chose one near and dear to my heart, fig painting. I will gladly accept any input on my photography. I built my own light box, and for this shoot used a white backdrop. I plan on printing out or ordering some better choices shortly. The boys will all take any constructive criticisms you might h

  9. Flame on son! Cultist of Fire #1 done. This was in the nature of an experiment with both his cloak and his dagger. My first major attempt at a colour shade blend, I think it came out ok, but something I need to practise. It was my first go at NMM on his dagger which also turned out ok. There's the faintest hint of bright green on the tip of the dagger which is because these guys have poison daggers in game. The main base of this guy was really quick to do, then touch ups and dropping him and getting washes and paints in the wrong spots... bleh totally blew out my time so I only go

  17. *puts on sage hat* That lineage may not be so clear, as Partha and Citadel were super chummy back then and some "parthas" were actually Citadel minis, while some "citadel" minis were actually Parthas and who produced what, when is still not fully documented as far as I can tell. Which is how it came to be that Citadel owns some stuff, and some of the IWM molds currently in use were actually used to produce Citadel minis. The real bizarre thing for me, since we're waxing historical, is that a sizable chunk of my mini hobby is actually composed of GW products . . . only they're not G

  19. ok, here is the deal. The Post Office has a congressional mandate to deliver mail 6 days a week, Mon-Sat. Something is happening in March where the upper echelons in the USPS thinks they can just cut out Sat delivery. Now, I have been a USPS mail carrier for almost 12 years now, and for the last 9 ir so years they have been talking about cutting Saturday delivery. While most americans could care less about mail being delivered on Sat, the special intrest groups that do care are loud & have lots of little politicians listening to them. I honestly think this plan from the USPS is going to bo

  20. To keep myself encouraged, and to keep track of my skill (or lackthereof) for Ashardalon, I'm going to chuck them all here while I await the Reaper Surprise in March. Here's the first one done, I haven't spent a massive amount of time on it (for me) it was about an hour all told I think. But it's also a simple model. As it's just a generic monster it's not quite as good as I could have made it.

  21. Like a goodly number of people, judging from the trade thread, I don't have a great deal of use for the Chrono minis coming in the Bonesalanche. I mostly play fantasy RPG, where one seldom runs into dark future heroes or smokies. But at the same time, I felt it unseemly to complain about these being included since I was otherwise getting a great deal. And the cybermonkey amused me a great deal. But now that we're nearing the Bonesening, I'm trying to work out half a painting plan to get these many minis done . . . and I find myself looking at the Chronos and thinking I should be car

  24. Protip for buglips: Throw IMEF Marines at your D&D players. Make all sort of "realistic" but totally unfair firearms rules. Ignores armor. Deals 3d10 damage. 18-20 crit range with x4 multiplier. Roll that damage for each round of the burst. If they somehow manage to overcome that... give their future armor nearly complete immunity to medieval weapons.

  25. 80 years of pulp roots. Conan, Boris Vallejo, etc. Whether you see the scantily-clad heroines as purile chessecake or homage to the roots of this vastly-expanded fantasy genre we enjoy is a matter of personal taste. Personally, on that score, I lean towards homage. I buy scantily-clad lady minis (in particular Dennis Mize scantily-clad lady minis) for the same reasons I buy cheesy old robots with antennaes and dials. There's more processing power in an iPhone than Robby the Robot ever would have dreamed of, but he's still cooler. And Red Sonja might have dramatically improper taste in pr

  26. Lots of NMM gold on this one, so I spent the morning going over other details. Pouches, scrolls, lips and...what's that? That's right, true believers...you're looking at freehand! And setup for NMM gold trim, no less. The back of the model was just a wall of black, so I wanted to break it up with gold. I felt wrapping the trim to the front would be too much gold, given all the gold already on the front of the model.

Dragon-men - all kinds. With wings, without wings, tails or tailless doesn't matter just bring on more of them! Catmen (not that i don't like lady catpeople too there just seems to be very few male cat people out there) and last but not least one of the rarest minis out there Duck People ala Runequest (think Howard the Duck comics for size vs. humans please don't ever look at that horri

  32. @badoctor, yeah I've had a look at your guys, I'll be doing my legion devils in a very similar colour :) @Vutpakdi I agree, the snake is actually a black snake and in normal light the blue is very gentle, until you put it under a glaring white light. Highlighting and shadowing is definitely something I am working on though... highlighting is so hard! And here is Snake #2 Randy 'The Viper' Orton. This little bugger took about 1hr40mins... the reason it took an extra 40mins? The gorram gold spots. I did them in scorched brown to provide a base and then went over them with gold. It took m

  36. I did the trim and gold NMM on Ororo to a marathon of Portlandia. I'm amazed there are any straight lines at all. No pun intended (they gender bend a lot on the show). Well, it's the Northwest. We have to do SOMETHING to keep ourselves entertained during the nine months of the year we go without sun.

  41. Depends on the 20%. Basically it's just to let multiple people make stories in the same vein, since it's impossible for a writer to operate if they have to read every book in existence beforehand*. So if I write a story about a serial killer who works as a cop and kills serial killers, that's okay. But if I write about Dexter Morgan, it's not. (Dexter was, in fact, preceded by two novel series featuring the same concept) This sometimes leads to bizarre instances wherein the latecomer becomes more successful and well-known, and its pre-existing competitor is derided by fans as a blatant

  43. I put in some estimated dimensions and numbers for styrene injection molding for a tooling capable of doing 8 Bones ogres for a lifespan of 100,000 cycles using lower commodity plastic and it returned a figure double what's in your post. That by no means should be taken as fact that that's what it costs Reaper or anything, but it certainly suggests that a quarter mill might be in the ballpark depending on the factors involved for that example OP company's specs.

  47. Three more minis to finish off the week. First off we have Vistrail Quillscratch from Reaper. I thought I'd try some freehand but failed and ended up with just a zigzag pattern. Then we have the undead dwarf from Stonehaven's Dwarf Adventurers Kickstarter. The minis are well done but as a whole abit to big for my taste so I don't know if I'll ever use them and they will probably have a low priority to get painted, except for the smith. The undead dwarf is another such exception. A really cool mini that also was faily easy to paint. And lastly we have Minimu
