    I enjoy painting minis as something they're not intended to be, so when MS put up a contest to come up with a character...who better than Deadpool? In one issue, he appears in the 70s to team up with Power Man and Iron Fist and of course uses this opportunity to go 'incognito' as a pimp... I added a couple katanas from 02455: Weapon Pack IV by Werner Klocke (one graciously donated by Kuro, thanks!) and some GS to add in folds where they entered his coat. The base is also scratch made from styrene and GS. This one was a lot of fun to paint, which I needed given the past couple months (but we're all happy and healthy now!). It turned out to be something of a continuation of my HF Gwen project, playing around with some freehand ideas and continuing to try to develop my brush control. The soda can says 'Joke' a play on Joka Cola, something DP would drink, surely :) Hope you folks enjoy it as much as I do!

    I'm putting together a Lovecraftian themes group for a game and have been painting some Bathalians. Here are two Primarchs, an Exarch, a Centurion, and a Hound of Tindalos. One of the Primarchs is metal and the other is Bones. Can you tell which? I used these to experiment with new washes and colors I rarely use. I still have a handful of Kulathi to paint to round out the group. Here they are with Cthulhu.

    Thanks again! Some specific responses: @aku-chan (#21): The pattern looks especially complex in the original art, but I boiled it down to pairs of diagonal lines (a group of 3 in the original art), filled in with squares/diamonds. @ShadowRaven (#26): ... maybe a few more milliSchuberts! @Arydis (#27): No, I don't have any WIPs of my sculpting. Good idea. @haldir (#28): You probably missed her because there wasn't a painted version in the online store/gallery. I'm just getting around to painting her now.... The next step of the WIP: Lining, refining, and otherwise detailing all of that armor, edging, and studs. Also, highlighting the blanket/skirt some more. Two more hours of painting (six hours so far, after priming) got me about waist-high: Derek

    So, this is a rather big project for me. been in the planning stage for a long time now. Almost afraid to start.. I am not much fan of the egyptian parts of the warhammer undead armies, and decided I want to try having a more gothic undead army, which means creating my own stuff to proxy. I got a little carried away, and decided to make all of this into a little diorama. Ordered a ton of bits and pieces, and had to pay through the nose in government custom fees.. but what can you do? :D Anyway, here is a little test of how things will be: So far it consists of: 2xNightspectres, 77099 Ghostly summons, 77095 Dragoth the Defiler, 30010 Crypt of the Vampiress, 02990 Altar of Evil, 77139 Female: Victim, (P02580C) Shannon (body), (P02083A) Back of Throne (P02068B). .. and some jewlerybead skulls..

    This is the second of the Galeforce 9 dragon cultists from this resin set that I've painted, for use in the Tyranny of Dragons/Hoard of the Dragon Queen/Rise of Tiamat adventure path I've been running for my 5th Edition D&D players. This is Talis the White. The last couple of photos show her next to Rezmir the Black, the first cultist I painted from the set. I'm about half way done with the last two from the set, so onwards I paint! I think my painting, but not my photography skills, are improving. Talis' armor was done with blues and whites for a NMM bluish metallic armor look. I was especially happy with the shading and highlights on the purple cloth on both minis, though the highlights were still a little rough in places. And I was happy with the depth the fur cape was able to get. Of course the detail on resin miniatures certainly helped with the painting, though the assembly process was more challenging and delicate.

    Well, I've been somewhat busy this week and haven't made as much progress as I'd like, but I did finally sit down today and do the conversion work on our violin player! After the usual removal of the broccoli base, I also removed her hands and staff to make way for her new hands. Now, I've tried sculpting hands before with limited (very limited) success, so I thought I'd try to use some copper wire as an armature of sorts. That helped immensely, but I still feel like I didn't quite nail the hands. They seem a little too large, and I know the relative finger lengths are not spot on. That being said, I feel like a good coat of paint should do wonders here, and of course I'll use some "skill in a bottle" (a.k.a. Brush-on Sealer) to make up for my poor GS surface texture skills. Oh, and I also gave her new, larger eyes because those stock Sandra Garrity eyes are just so tiny! Less than three weeks to go; I'd better kick it into overdrive!

    I hadn't planned on finishing this Miniature today. I just couldn't put it down ! That's an endorsement of a great sculpt. Svartulf came alive in my hands in a sense. Once I started I just kept on wanting to uncover what the sculpt was about, this morning I realized I was done, and started the basing. I placed him inside a circular coffee filter when I started gluing components on the base. When it came to the black filter material, I was able to pour it on, push it down, and move it as needed using the paper filter. When done I used a "Proxa brush to remove excess, and then dump the excess back into a zip lock bag for later use. This is a fun sculpt ! Thanks Tre ! Comments and Criticism is desired and welcomed. Here is the Based Svartulf the Savage.

    Normally I wait until I have stuff in hand before posting, but shipments from overseas seem to arrive on their own schedule and it's a slow day. All links are either company promotional images or CMON / P&P posts where the artist shows off their commission with more pics. Weakened Eurozone, hooray!

    This mini didn't really do so much for me at first but I thought why not paint it up anyway and see what happens. So I did and this happened...

    A couple male victims/prisoners. There's quiet a few bound and gagged females like the one on the altar, the one in thr cultist ring, and the one hanging from the spit. If the figure was topless and in good shape that might get a little closer to evening the disparity as well.

    One more aside: Here are some of those E- range elves and goblins in action a couple of years ago, in the Scuffle at the Elven Tower... There's also a Prince August home cast orc, and a later Ral Partha Cyclops-kin involved. Here's a view of the whole table, with my sons in command of the forces. I had recently acquired a Gale Force 9 tower and wanted to see it in action. The whole thing is being played with the Heritage Knights and Magick rules, which is very suitable for small actions on a 3x3 cloth.

    I'm back to work of the mage. Got the hair 90% done, though I only took a shot of her from the back. Little touch up's left (if I feel up to it). This week end will be to finish the skin (and the gold time and patience permitting). Need to kick it into gear to get her finished for RCon. Here we go again:

    I finally finished the guard tower and wall!! All carved out of foam, painted, and flocked with woodland scenics flock, with trees made from sculpey and wire with clump foliage. The rocks are foam carved as well, they were really hard getting the strata carved to look convincing, but I think it looks nice. This section of the city is coming along well!!

    When I decided to enter the Painting Excuses contest I thought about painting Kyrie as Little Red Riding Hood (Pingo made mention of it when she came out and the idea has been rattling in my head ever since). But as I prep-ed her, it occurred to me that it would take very little to turn her into a barbarian version of Princess Mononoke. I mean, wolf cape! So I filled out her skirt with green stuff and covered the wolf face with a round blob to make the mask. I ended up wishing I had had made the mask bigger though. I used the rosy skin triad on her, blackened brown, shield brown, ginger cookie... and some tan on her armour bits. I know I started with ginger cookie for the cloak, and ended with white, but I don't remember the in-between colour (painting journal, what's that? ) And as usual, my camera washed out the work I did on the white. Honest to Sophie, there's actual shading and whatnot on that fur cloak

    He's good. Here's his regimental standard for our Prince August 40mm semiflat 18th century imaginary countries project. The style is deliberately toy soldier-y: His country is the Imperial Free City of Wiegenburg (which makes the inhabitants Wiegenburgers, or Vegan Burgers, hence the cow as the main charge on the field of daisies seme') ... ) Guess I raised them right. (However difficult that may be to explain to the rest of the world sometimes...)
