  1. Finished Omar here. He was fun to work on...he's so cheerful! I should have put him on a flagstone or marble base or something, but I didn't chop him off his integral base before I started painting...so, he gets sand.

  2. Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll (from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872) `Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe. "Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!" He took his vorpal sword in hand: Long time the manxome foe he sought -- So rested he by the Tumtum tree, And stood awhile in thought. And, as in uffish thought he stood, The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame, Came whiffling

  3. Finally finished the Ogre Chieftain from my WIP. Pretty happy with the way he turned out overall, a few things that I just let go and chalked up as a learning experience. Comments and criticism welcome. Lots of pictures:

  7. More progress on these guys, although most of it is subtle. Decided the red on the loincloth just wasn't working for me, so now it's blue. Much better. It was redone using Breonne Blue, Ashen Blue, with a bit of Pure White mixed in to the Ashen Blue at the end. Looks a little too shiny in these pictures (almost metallic). Needs a glaze of something to tone down the highlights, and maybe infuse another color into it. I completed the lining, shading and highlighting on the armor. I tried to make sure there were good clean lines for most of the red/grey armor to help sell

  9. I finished 80020 Eric Proudfoot, IMEF Marine a while ago, but apparently forgot to post him. Here he is. He fits almost perfectly into a 30mm round lipped base, so that's how he's displayed for the moment. He's attached with Elmer's glue, which has enough of a hold that the base won't fall off, but not enough that he can't be easily snapped off with no damage.

  12. #50150 Betty, Space Heroine Project #4 Page 1 This is one of the figures for the Pulp Competition that I'm working on. I wanted to get at least one pic up of her early on before I complete her. She comes with a familiar and I have completed him. They will both go onto a scenic base that I am doing some modifications on. I'll be taking a lot of pictures as I go, but will not post them all until after I have submitted her.

  13. Finally finished the Monkey King miniature I've been working on over the past month. Although I'm fairly new to the hobby, I've got a few minis from a few different companies in a few different materials (metal, plastic, resin) and this is by far the most problematic mini I've ever had to work with. He's fragile resin and I mean fragile. His staff broke twice while I was painting it, I sculpted green stuff around the second break (this the ribbons on the staff) to try and give it some more stability. His right leg also snapped while I was cutting him off the sprue it was on. *pulls out

  16. I haven't posted a mini in several years. Last child was born 4 years ago, etc. etc. My Wife of Awesomeness +10 gave me an afternoon off today so I finally got some uninterrupted painting time. This took me about 3.5 hours, which is positively frenetic for me. This is one of the few figs that I'm actually happy with, probably because I stole the color scheme from the inspiration gallery (Thanks to Jennifer Haley). Comments and criticism welcome. Good to be back on the horse, if only for a little while.

  17. I painted up Reaper's 50212 Incredible Woman to resemble my husband's fire controller from the now defunct online game, City of Heroes. The fire critter is from Wyrd Flame base accessories set. He really likes it, so mission accomplished . As you can see from the reference pictures, she got a slight costume change...

  18. Ok, so this light and angle are terrible, but it's better than the washed out set I took last night. - Finished up basecoats on her club with Blackened Brown for the stick, and Intense Brown and Aged Bone for the rest. I did notice that the straps on that bottom jawbone don't match between the front and the back. Cave Girl magic? - A tiny bit of subtle lining between her hair and skin, and inside her mouth with extra thin Intense Brown. - Skin highlights. I did a round with her Suntan Flesh/Linen White base lightened a little further, then a pass with straight Tanned Hi

  24. Well, first of all, thanks for the compliments! I know how you feel - I feel the same way when Derek or some of the others post their work. There's the momentary urge to bury my brushes and go find something else to do. However, it's important to remember it's not a competition, and with time, practice, and effort, you get better. If you saw some of my early work, or even stuff from just a couple years ago, you'd probably be much less impressed. So, keep at it. Practice. Try new things - different colors, different techniques. It doesn't matter if it works the first time (it probably w

  25. Touch-ups to base coat completed last night and started toying around with more detailed work tonight. Second coat went on much smoother. Replaced the green dots with actual eyes. Colors: Pure Green, Pure Yellow, Pure Black I didn't know how to accomplish a 'raccoon' eye when the scale tone was already black, so I added yellow to make it pop. Left / Right comparison of shading & highlights on belly scales below the waist. Colors: Linen White, Golden Blonde, Yellowed Bone, Rainy Gray, Pure Black I think I need to add a rainy gray wash to smooth the wet blending o

  26. I painted this mini, for Malifaux, at a friend's urging a couple months before the kickstarter. It was the first time I had ever done miniature painting, and the fun and relaxation doing it is probably one of the big reasons I snagged the bones kickstarter when I saw it. I'm hoping to get a lot better, and be a lot less rough as I get better. Heck, I spent the last couple days researching shadowing and highlight techniques. ^~^

  27. I am glad to know that at least one person would buy a Koya figure. After I saw Patrick Keith's excellent renditions of Ameiko and Shalelu (v2.0, blonde- instead of green-haired), I sculpted Sandru and I also thought that a Koya figure would be nice to finish out the set -- and would be an unusual subject for expanding my sculpting skills. If/when I start sculpting her, I'll let you know. Derek

  28. Back in 2006 a few new friends invited me to be part of a Legend of the Five Rings game. I, of course wanted some nice minis for the game, so I shopped around a bit & found AEG/Reapers Clan War minis. Here are the three PCs from that game: The Lion is Ikoma Ryu, a straight-laced, honorable samurai. Very by-the-book, very much a stick in the mud, very good guy to have your back. The Crab is my chracter: Hiruma Tokaji, he had few social graces, and fewer qualms doing whatever it took to complete a mission (assassinating enemy leaders, setting fire to an opposing army's food, sowing se

  32. I still have no delivery confirmation, no minis and no idea what is going on. A little sympathy/empathy is usually a cool thing I've got to agree that from the perspective of those of us still waiting for shipping notification, let alone the figures themselves, people saying "Well I've got mine so there's no problem!" comes across... poorly. In an effort to keep things civil I haven't responded myself, but if you, as in the you who've got yours, could avoid waving red flags in our direction my circulatory system would greatly appreciate it.

  33. Absolutely. There are a lot of painters that are so good it's simultaneously inspiring and ego-crushing. Tommie Soule told me to just mimic the stuff that you love looking at the most. Recently DKS posted a beautiful leather pack and graciously shared his palette and technique when I asked...and I promptly used a modified version on my next project and plan on playing with that technique for a while until it becomes incorporated into my style (or I find it doesn't and I discard it). My NMM is almost 100% Anne Foerster's L2PK, but informed by a ton of observational study. I liken it to musi

  34. The great Bones vs Acetone experiment has begun. I super glued (Loctite Brush on brand) two pieces of sprue into a cross and let dry. As previously noted by another post, the bond is pretty strong. 1. I started by swabbing some Acetone on the sprue with a Q-Tip and let it evaporate. No noticeable effect. 2. Sprue is soaking in a jar with acetone. Will check at 30 mins and 1 hour. If no noticeable effect, I will let soak over night. Stay Tuned! 3. 10 Minute mark. (I couldn't wait 30 minutes!). After 10 minutes, the material is more rubbery and bendy. No melting yet.

  35. I know we've said it throughout other threads but I want to thank Reaper/Hobby Q for deciding to create Bones and then expand the line with Kickstarter. Thank you for a tireless effort to produce Kickstarter, to think up and create new sculpts, to manage all the effort to get molds made and put to use. Thank you for your funny, amusing videos throughout this project and all the photos. Thank you for your patience with us and for giving up your time to ensure things keep moving forward even as everything tries to hold you back. Thank you for being the example of how companies should be run

  36. so do I. Aside from the Reaper, GW, & Heartbreaker stuff I was going to branch into several others, plus a lot more Privateer Press. I'll go more into depth on that at below. Thanks, I've been doing "lava pattern" weapons ever since I saw them in a white dwarf almost a decade ago. It's actually a really easy way to make a weapon stand out. Thanks, I'd like that. Like I said, Dark Sun is one of my All-time favorite settings. I'd love to play in a game someday, but that's probably not in the cards. I'll shoot you a PM in a few days. Where the painting tips are concerned, I'd

  37. I've had this mini around for a few years now and finally decided to paint her once I was more comfortable pinning. I think she's one of the best pin jobs that I've done to date :) and I thought it was relatively easy :) i really enjoyed painting her. She's just an NPC for D&D so she didn't take but a few hours to paint. I have a queue of figures to paint so I wanted to get her done before I started on the others for an upcoming show. I used her as an experiment of sorts. One of the miniatures I'm painting is from Stormtroopers (Boudicea) and she has "fiery red hair". I concocted a mix

Celia: final blending and highlights on hair. Blending complete on sword, unless I decide I want to add white at the very tip. Added shadows and highlights to the pants. Started shading and highlighting the skin. Lisette: I started shading/highlighting the skin and it looked awful, so I restarted with a fresh layer of skin color. I highlighted the dress, but I think I might need to take the highlights up even m

  40. As usual I'm late to the party, for the topic about my absolute favorite game. I play alot of different wargames, but SBH is the one I keep coming back to. Despite it's simplicity, I've yet to tire of it and find that it continues to provide an engaging gaming experience. It's Flexibility allows me to continue to collect and paint a wide variety of miniatures knowing that I'll always have a game to find them in. So far I've painted and played the following types of warbands. 1) Sentient Animals (Justice and Caeke and others) 2) Natural animals, led by a beastmaster 3) Wood Elfs 4)

The front feet will look a bit strange until I flesh out the rest of the legs and body: Skulls: Next, I under pinned the skull shapes and necks: Zombie Puppies!! Eye balls are a quite a bit larger than most people realize. I always love this stage as they look like zombies. Don't worry, it will be right once the skin goes on. Dobbie Tails!

She's just waiting for me to build up a batch of minis to spray-seal at once. 60092: Cleric of Calistria And here's the dwarf hunter with his boar. The original miniature had a bow that I thought looked weird, so I removed it and swapped it for a hammer that came on a weapon sprue from the same KS. I am pondering adding googly-eyes and a cartoon-style pair of "bumps" on his head, like he just got whacked with that hammer.
