  1. When I drew LeopardPixie's name for the mini exchange, I knew I had to do something that would do honor to her name. This was the result:

  2. A few weeks ago, I posted the sculpt of this guy. Now he has paint. The players managed to bypass the dungeon where he was lurking, so I guess he'll have to wait until I find another time to use a betentacled monocular stalagmite.

  3. I've been working on the miniatures I received from the recent Red Box kickstarter. I really do love these minis and I think that I really leveled up in painting with these ones. I also started to experiment with water effects. The lighting isn't as good as I would like - so I'll need to work on my set up, but I just really wanted to share these. First up is the Bolverk the Bold miniature, I painted him up to look like the Barbarian Class from Diablo II and III Barbarian4 Like with all Tre's miniatures, the tiny details on this were absurd but also a joy to paint.

  4. Gave these guys a pretty quick paint job just now, they're some of my favorite D&D beasties of all time. Didn't figure out a good way to really mod them differently. I tried changing the "jaw" positions with the boiling trick, but it didn't want to stick. I ended up just painting them in different colors. Purple guy: Green guy: And since I've been having fun with the fluo-paints lately, with UV-lighting (IT GLOWS! :D):

  5. One of a variety of things I've painted over the last several weeks, somewhat haphazardly between rehearsals and getting slammed at work. I like how he turned out, literally took me half of Disney's Mulan to paint. The grey background of the light tent washed a lot of the highlights out, so there's also a pic against a dark background. There are no fancy techniques of any kind involved in this guy, not even a wash. He's all drybrushed. The players took him down in two rounds, but it was a fun encounter.

  6. Another fairly quick paint. Based on a CD with a lot of Pumice Paste. Not a lot to say...took less than three hours spread over several days. The players haven't faced this one, yet. Should be good when they do.

  7. So a while ago in my Bones painting at work WIP, I was painting this guy: (no, he's not finished yet. I took him home when I went on vacation, and he's still sitting on the shelf, right over there, waiting for me to take him back in and finish him...I think he's starting to get annoyed about it too.) Anyway, I mentioned the BLA (Bovine Liberation Army) from a long ago D&D game I'd run. This brought up the song "Cows with Guns", which somehow I'd never heard. Well, ever since then I've had an idea brewing in my head, and with my most recent Reaper order arriving, I was able to st

  8. Hi guys, I don't usually do WIPs as I tend to paint for tabletop and very few miniatures take more than one evening's work. This one however is different. Ebonwrath is one of my favorite dragon sculpts and the fact he is now a Bones miniature just makes him easier to work with. I decided I wanted a scenic display base so set myself the challenge of making a suitable one for this mighty beast. This is the first Dragon i'll have painted for over a decade and the first scenic base i've attempted since the 80s (that's sadly not an exaggeration). I picked up an old trophy from a j

  9. I had to turn to Wikipedia to find out who that was. Looks like he was a cool guy, that's just terrible what happened. This is what I'm planning on doing, though since I'm going for more of a fantasy feel, I'm not going to be doing camo or denim with this guy (though I agree, they would look awesome). I'm going to do the fur on his collar the darker brown like the end of the mane. Sadly, the only red I have is Blood Red, which is very bright. I put in an order for the following paint from Reaper on Monday night with the hopes that it will get here by Friday, since I don't really

  11. Okay, I need to post the Pictures of the fig: 14574: Yeti Shaman, Icstd (Jason Wiebe) as painted by Sliksham, that arrived today for the Summer Exchange. The top down shot is an attempt to show the great job that he did with the base as well as the awesome job on the fig itself. The colors are great, crisp. The hide even has shading to give the impression of dirt rubbed into the fur. I can only hope that my pictures do it justice and that my exchange is as happy with what I am painting. I plan to work on the shading, and highlights this coming Friday Night Paint Night, for the fig I a

  12. My newest bones for the summer exchange. I apologize to the recipient of the Hell Hound for not doing an actual base. I didn't have plastic bases that big and didn't think to make a wood one till after my gift from the exchange arrived.

  15. Um, yay? I guess it's a good thing they're creeping you out, since he's intended to be a bad guy. :) I returned to my P3 Molten Bronze for his boots, though I kept the coverage very very light since I wanted to give more the impression of metal rather than full-on shiny like on Tanya. It's a cool effect, the brownlining is still slightly visible through it. I didn't want to do them in metallic, but on close inspection, according to the sculpt, they're definitely supposed to be metal. Oh well. I might do a very light brown wash over them just to define the edges a bit more, bu

  16. The Bones Bathalion (77020) figure had a lot of detail on the edges of the cape. Since this is just tabletop I didn't spend a lot of time on that detailing. Fun figure to paint, I just blacklined the transition and painted the basecoat straight on with no primer. (And I did in fact finish this figure before Buglips had his Bones speedpaint epiphany...) These Cowboys are from the Black Scorpion Miniatures Tombstone 4 set. They have a lot of character. When I get them all painted and based properly I will post a group shot. And last but not least, A Ral Partha Or

  19. The standard that I use for 'tabletop quality' is 'looks good at arm's length'. For a gobbo... I do not need to put in the pupils. The players are not likely to be picking up and admiring his paintjob, or the tattoo on his arm. For my evil airship pirate captain, pupils, buttons, and epaulettes... and a tattoo that reads 'I Was Young, Drunk, And In The Navy.'*.... The Auld Grump *Pure hyperbole - but I saw that tattoo once in real life, and it has been riding in my memory ever since.

  22. Recently my better half was inspired to dig out his Shackled City Adventure Path book, do some minor setting conversions and start up a Friday evening campaign. I decided to roll up a female paladin of Thor, which was fun because I haven't rolled up a new character in a while. It took me a few days to remember that I needed to paint a miniature for her. Whoops! Looking through the Reaper catalog didn't produce a large number of female humans wielding war hammers. Especially if wearing normal clothing was also a requirement. Eventually I concluded that it was time to face my fear of c

  23. What's this? Shadowraven attempting to do a WIP? Why yes,that is exactly what it is. Let's see if I remember to take pictures as I go. So awhile ago, my favorite though saddly not so local game store had a box of old Partha minis on for half off. Of course I picked up a few. This guy was the first I decided to paint. Primed white, seemed like the way to start. I have however decided, in the future, I will use a spray primer on guys with as many nooks and crannies as this. Picture showed spots I missed, I think I got it all now, but if I find a missed spot as I go,I will not be sur

  28. when I say finished I normally don't care about the base, when I stop feeling lazy I'll finish the base and break out the camera to get some high rez pic's in the lightbox. there's a Decent amount of shading on the bones that isn't coming through in this light btw.

  31. When the 1989 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and X-Men arcade games came on Xbox Live my eyes lit right up. Because those two games owe me a ton of money in quarters. And I told them as much. I said "I have you now. I have you. And I will never let you go free. I have infinite quarters, and now I am going to make you pay. Make you pay until my fingers bleed. For every. Single. Quarter. Every one! Particularly you, Shredder, with your allowance-eating cheat jutsu. Victory is mine!"

  32. Thought of a couple more to add. It might be nostalgia talking, but I have fond memories of Mother Goose, Rock and Rhyme. I watched it for days on end and loved it to bits. Another is Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. It's ridiculous and over-the-top and good fun to watch. I do! I can't think of any specific titles off the top of my head (except for Breakfast at Tiffany's), but I've thoroughly enjoyed every one I've seen. Eh, we're in the Off Topic Rampancy section, and you're the one who started the thread anyways. I've still got an SNES around and still pull it out fr

  35. Just to close up the topic (and thanks for all the great conversations!) I finally got a W&N7 #0 and #1, and same sizes from Escoda Kolinsky-Tamyr. All from a online retailer that does free international orders if you only order brushes, for order more than about 30USD (I think). It is a British company called Jackson's Art. Look it up, the one order I made arrived in great shape to this far away country, and the prices were good. I have just placed an extra order for cheap synth brushes on sale and wet palette paper that I cannot get here as well.

  37. Thanks Inara! I will certainly work to be able to present it. It is a nice change of pace having a deadline, and I admit, it is working. This will be my bigger, more ambitious, more new-technique-testing work to date, and I am enjoying every minute. I go to sleep thinking and pondering the possibilities with the diorama, the Dragon, the minis... It has been decided that the mini going on top will be the human Wizard. I will have to tweak the pose so that it is more obvious that he just climbed up the rock and turned, but he is more fluid in movement and I can work his footsteps with paint

  39. I refuse to watch a movie shown on 3-D... If I wanted 3-D, I would go to a play or outdoor performance, you know, REAL 3-D. That, along with the fact that 3-d movies gives me a serious headache that can last for days..... It doesn't enhance the experience for me. It distracts and makes me ill. My top 2 movies (Memento and Amadeus) need neither CGI nor 3D to be amazing. Inception, however, is a master class in how to use new tools properly.

I've witnessed arguments over D3 before where some fine upstanding gentleman have stated that it is of course a D6 where 1&2 = 1, 3&4 = 2, 5&6 = 3, whereas some vile mouthbreathing miscreant has insisted that it's 1&4=1, 2&5=2, 3&6=3. I have no strong opinion either way..... And never trust a man that chooses to use baby D6

  46. On to the cloak. Or cape. Or whatever. I started with the front. Didn't want anything too dramatic on there. If the light is above it really shouldn't have a lot of light on it, right? Just used the new blood triad to highlight the folds a bit, and anywhere I thought might catch a little more light. At lost I mixed the colours to get a intermediate shade to make the transitions smoother. Then I got to the back. Had a lot more trouble with how light I wanted to bring things up. So I ended up going to probably the lightest I will go and blocking that in. I'm fairl

  49. So? A good sculptor will still do absurdly static if that's what's being comissioned, and the scults will thus still be mostly meh. Though to be fair, I think the RAFM Airship Pirates are still better than the Numenara figs, which tbh look like the sculptor didn't even bother trying to breathe any life into the RPG artwork poses. That's what they pay me to do. It has always been a tension point. "Do you want me to make it look cool, or look like the art?" Not every piece of art translates well back into 3D. In the case of the Airship Pirates I was sculpting from photos of the band memb
