    Finishing up the last few, here's miniatures that didn't belong with the others. Cyclops Spearmaiden from Massive Darkness: Totally a Redcap and not a dwarf as labelled, from Massive Darkness: "Sister Lana, Healer" from Reaper Miniatures: An unknown Gladiatrix, possibly West Wind, acquired during the travels of the Reaper Box of Goodwill:

    Hello forum Family, this week I managed to paint another mini Reeve Irremborg Planomap - SKU: 44019 (woohoo!) and this is my new personal record, 2 minis in two weeks! In this bad time I'm in need of colors, so let's keep painting colorful scheme and palette... don't know if this combo really works, something is odd to my eyes, but maybe my wife is right and the problem is me (I'm basically never happy of what I do!). Also taking pics of this little one was a pain... Anyway, let me know what you think of it. Every C&C is more than welcome! Thanks :)

    Here are 2 concept pictures, followed by the actual minis. The Art was fun, but not really my style. The minis though were good. last time was this "54mm are made of white metal or high quality resin (you will able to choose version you prefer after campaign). 28mm are made of white metal only (no resin versions available)." I asked on facebook if there would be a resin 28mm option this time... There will not.

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/impactminiatures/frog-folk-villagers-3d-printable-and-physical-model-chibi/ a new Impact! project offers 12 frog folk either for RPGs (with smaller heads etc) or as Chibis (with larger heads etc) you can buy the minis directly as physical prints or you can buy the STLs if you have a 3D printer of your own Digital Models - You can purchase the STL 3-D Print file for any of the below 24 models for $2 each. One entire set of STL 3-D Print files for the 12 models in either RPG or Chibi format is $15. All 24 STL 3-D Print files are $25. (NOTE: The RPG Frog Folk Merchant is available for as a free download below .. you do not need to buy it!) Physical Models - You can purchase individual physical copies of the miniatures for any of the below 24 models (see the image for price per a model). One entire set of 12 physical miniatures in either RPG or Chibi format is $65. All 24 physical miniatures for this KickStarter (both sets) is only $110. The sets are discounted for this KickStarter from the expected retail prices of $70 and $130 for the sets when/if they go to into our retail store. The physical models both RPG and Chibi are designed for an average Frog Folk Villager to be 28mm in total height when standing. Since most Frog Folk are shown of smaller stature than a Human in most RPG settings we feel this scale helps show that well. Free Sample!

    As suggested by Pochi on her Cottage WIP, I'm starting this new topic today to show you my progress on building my little world. I'll be assembling, converting and painting buildings a scenery to edify my own country side village. I've been eyeing Tabletop World products for a while and recently desided to go for it and placed my first order. I'll launch my WIP with the Water Well since I already started assembling it and primed it. I think it's the perfect piece to start with. It's easy to assemble and any village needs a good source of fresh water to survive and flourish. Like I said, I already started to assemble it. The Water Weel comes in six parts. Here, I've assembled the otw side posts and the rotating rope beam to the stone well. Just like Pochi and Tiniest rhombus in is WIP, I chose to use white primer to obtain brighter colors when I'll start painting. There wasn't much if any mold lines at all on the parts, so I simply cleaned everything to make sure that all the mold release product was washed.

    Finished after a few delays from a project started in...December 2019, woops, are some more female residents of Frostgrave. All are from the official range from North Star Miniatures, other than two metal minis they are all built from the Frostgrave Soldiers II and Frostgrave Wizards II boxed sets, though they may have a few accessories from elsewhere (and the Cultists from the Frostgrave Cultists kit. The two metals: a Barbarian Apothecary and Barbarian Apprentice. The Cultists: Just plain Thieves: Obviously Wizards: K'ren, Slayer of Managers: A hero type: Those who could pass as Townsfolk: a Mule/Porter, an Arcanist/Old Woman, Town Cryer, local guide, and Apothecary/Potion Vendor.

    Need some muscle on your team? How about some out of work rough necks. They work for cheap and only require a club and dagger. Ensure your hideout is secure. Order yours today!

    Presenting the Ogre Tyrant by Games Workshop, he is very heavily armed. This one took a while, it's very much one of those minis where the more you work on it, the more details you find. I am very pleased with how he turned out though. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    Tried to print the Atlas a couple times again, came out a little better, but still not great. The second attempt, Forgot to add supports to the arms. One came out squished the other is flat. Try number three, one arm came out great. I apparently deleted two supports from islands on the other arm without realizing it. So it is flat, I’m thinking about cutting one arm off and attached to the other. The turn the armless one into wreckage. But on the bright side I got a Marauder printed. And a group of At-Sts. Going to have to find time to paint now! Thanks for looking,

    Always really loved this model this is my second go at it. Thought I would try something different with the clothes most of the painted ones I've seen are very brown.

    No, :). In the first one, the concepts shown were a little over the top, but the actual sculpts were very good. I will post an example.

    is it sad that I find the actual sculpt looks like a more natural pose than the concept art?

    I loved this mini from the very beginning. While I can see some mold lines I missed, among other skill improvements still needed, I love the way he turned out. Had a little fun taking some photos in the yard and he even had a friend join him in one of the shots, lol. He is probably my current favorite mini that I've done. Shell pattern is patterened after the star tortoise.

    just not sure why call it 'rex' haha, as even the base dinosaur it's based off of is Carno, But you do you! with four legs it gives me Postosuchus vibes actually. Postosuchus is a Triassic land-croc. Darn nature always taking the 'fantasy' out of fantasy

    ...Ok, perhaps "regular" was not the best word... :) So, Non flying Rex Monster... I like big arms rex, makes it more fantasy and some how makes it fit better in a fantasy army (in my twisted logic circuits).

    @chaosscorpion and @WhiteWulfe: Thanks! I thought the pose really asks for it. Finished the ripples on the UV resin pour (Mod Podge Clear). I also placed a littel frog and some tall grass using coloured straw. Final touches: - Adding some texture to the horn tips. - Painting up a raven and placing it in the tree. - Maybe placing a smaller bush.

    Finished up the flocking last night. It only needs to have felt added to the bottom to finished it up. I am just out of spray adhesive at the moment so that will have to wait. Just a mix of static grass various tufts and a bit of light green highlight on the grass. Another hallway shot with the flash. In normal lighting the whole tunnel is visible. Here are some shots with minis for scale. Undead naughty bits in the next image. Shot with a flash. Hope you like.

    Put in a drip system today. Included the leafless pepper plant (the twin that was doing better was dug up and murdered by small paws; not sure if beagle or squirrel), the leafless tomato, and the leafless squash. They all have been hanging on for over a week now so I will give them a fighting chance. Mistook end-of-line drippers for in-line ones so had to redo a lot of them. Did it in the morning so it would not be so hot but wound up the morning sun was hotter than the afternoon when it clouded up. Grr. Polished off a huge container of Gatorade (52 oz) so I think I sweated just a bit much. Didn’t get to everything I wanted to do garden wise this weekend but I can do a bit during the week I suppose.

    Here's another WIP for the Necron Tomb Complex. It's sort of my version of a translocator. You'll be able to model it opened or closed. The outer shell is pretty much done, now I'm working on the inner parts.

    Work for the day. I pollyfilled the top, added a sand texture and primed black. In this photo I have used a red brown colour for the base highlight on all ground and stones. I highlighted the stones with a dark grey and then highlighted all ground and stones with Khakie Then I applied filter washes (thinned down inks) One more highlight of Khaki on the stones to tone the filters down. Tonight I have already started on the flocking and now see that I forgot to do the last filter of green to simulate moss. Hope you like.

    Unexpected benefit of growing one's own food: taking a bite of cold cereal, deciding it really could use some strawberries, and being able to remedy the problem immediately. Unexpected side-effect of using one's own berries: discovering that while the berries taste fine on their own, the sugar in the Honey Nut Cheerios completely drowns out the (still kind of low) amount of natural sugar in the berries, resulting in a comparatively acidy taste instead. Lesson learned for next time! It also doesn't help that I've been inclined to pick my few berries a couple of days early, so I get a chance to eat them before the snails/slugs, dirt microbes, or occasional squirrel do. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    This is my version of a Games workshop Aragorn. I didn't want to paint him as Aragorn since I have two of these same minis so I decide to go for a purple skinned, white haired drow ranger. I'm going to use him as a swordsman named Vigo in my Rangers of Shadowdeep games. This mini was a blast to paint, I like how the highlights turned out. Thanks for looking! Unpainted mini:

    Still I find the translucent ones have less detail than the normal ones. Could just be me of course, but with the ones I have I can barely make out faces, of course I use those as ghosts.

    Starting a new project as I can never have enough of them. Since I finished my standing stones and visited Waylands Smithy last weekend I have decided to build a Long Barrow. Here is a photo of the real thing, I am not particularly happy with the foam that I am using but with the current situation you have to work with what you have. Started by cutting the interior rooms, shaping the hill and dressing the interior and exterior with foam stones. Slopes were added using pollyfilla. Foam was primed and sand and details were added to the interior. The interior will be visible but not accessible on this model. I will paint the interior first then finish building the rest of the hill.

    So I dug through my giant box of Minis Acquired In An Estate Sale and found a vintage Bones 2 bagged Narthrax. I didn't twist his pose, it came pre-twisted. I like it though, he's grabbing the rock with his widdle paw, which I've used as a third anchor point. With the wings more level he looks like he's about to jump off of his perch to harry some adventurers. Without further ado, the Desert Dragon: Despite rumors to the contrary, not all Desert Dragons are blue or shiny. Some are just brown. But brown doesn't mean boring. He has an extensive pattern of spots on his wings, both above and below. He even has the same spots on the pads of his widdle feets. Unfortunately, due to his new 'ready to eat Sir Forescale' pose, no photos of the underside of his wings came out. Also, they're more impressive in person; some of the subtler browns seem to have gotten lost in photography. Here's a better look at one wing: Rawr. Ready to launch off of his rock to eat a caravan, adventuring group, or bright primary blue pretender.

    Final Weathering Normally for this sort of weathering I would use an oil paint dot filter technique to create the grimy streaks and water marks on the walls, however I recently obtained a set of weathering pencils and really wanted to test them out. I used a mixture of browns, black, greens and sandy colours to create the vertical streaks, which I then blended with a wet brush. In my inexperience with the pencils, I possibly over did it, whilst dry it didn't seem like I had added a lot of pigment to the wall, however as soon as I touched it with a damp brush I quickly lost control and made a bit of a mess. I'll stick with the oils in future. For the slimey build up, I dipped a green pencil into a pot of water and then stippled and feathered the wet pigment onto the base of the wall. Setting the Scene. The idea behind this backdrop is that the local thieves guild once used the sewers to smuggle contraband in and out of the city until they were forced out by some ancient horror that has taken up residence in the tunnels. The plan is to now turn the tunnel into a long forgotten smugglers camp, untouched since it was abandoned years earlier. The first of my greeble and decor arrived today, so I did a little test fitting before painting. They are all Reaper accessories, including Wooden Crates (SKU77248), Barrels (77249) and bags and jars (77250). I also have a small rowboat on the way, which is what the smugglers would have used to transport their goods through the tunnels and some other small details. I also want to add 'the creature' into the water I just haven't decided what I want to use yet. The issue I have is that I made the sewage canal quite narrow (5cm wide), which limits the size of the monster I can fit in there. I suspect I am probably just going to add some massive tentacles emerging from the water to give the impression there is something big lurking down there, and leave it to the viewers imagination. However if anyone has any alternate ideas that they think could work, I am open to suggestions. The submerged troll from the Bones 5 Billy Goats Gruff set would have been perfect here, its just a shame it wont be released any time soon.

    The cracks between the stone were not dark enoght to my taste. I wanted to add more shading, so I applied a layer of Citadel Agrax Earthshade all over the stones. Then, I applied a 9086, Stone Grey drybrush and re-highlighted the darker and bluish stones. Finally, I applied a 9293 Alien Flesh drybrush on all the stones and a light 9031 Tanned Leather on some spots. I think it looks nice like that, so I will move forward and paint the wooden parts.

    To avoid getting a monotonous grey, I alternated by painting some stone in 9251 Dusky Skin color. Here, I used a smaller brush not to touch adjacent stones. I then mixed 9293 Alien Flesh, 9280 Nightmare Black and 9251 Dusky Skin and painted some other stones in a bluish grey color.

    Ok, so I apply another layer of diluted 9660 Powderburn Brown before starting building up the grey tones. Then, I brushed a layer of 9086, Stone Grey over all the stones. At this stage, I'm using a 9mm (0.35 inch) wide brush. It looks rough for now, but I'm confident that it will get better.

    Yes, it comes in six part, it is easy to assemble and really makes the painting process much easier. I finally decided to go with the realistic color scheme. For the wooden parts will I'll mainly be using 9028 Muddy Brown, 9030 Leather Brown and 9031 Tanned Leather. For the stones I'll be using 9660 Powderburn Brown which is a "Promo Color" and various tones of Grey; 09251 Disky Skin, 9086 Stone Grey, 9293 Alien Flesh, 9274 Vampiric Shadow and 9275 Vapiric Skin. I will add color on some of the stones too. So, I started basecoating all the wooden parts with 9028 Muddy Brown and the stones with 9660 Powderburn Brown. I thinned down the paint with 1 part of water for 4 parts of paint to make sure the paint will flow in all the cracks. Even if I need to apply two layers of paint to get an even basecoat, I prefer this techinque as I find it much faster to cover bigger surface and it helps keeping all the texture details.

    The new house we are buying simply does not have the space for this sadly. It would have made a great display, but I will have to struggle for fun stuff space like this beauty.
