  2. Okay, I just joined the forums so I'll be posting my "backlog" of finished minis. This is one I did for a contest earlier this year.

  3. I'm very happy with how the skin tone turned out on this mini.

  4. This one took a lot more time than i planned. 2.5 nights of work. The killer of it was all the layers with translucent paint. Keeping them thin to not get streaking was difficult. But i did it and it's done. Proud moment for me is the eye. Done!

  5. Just in time for the season! I happened to be going through some sort of a creativity crisis. I would start on a figure and almost right away stop feeling it. This guy seemed to shake me up quiet nicely. Although, I did get tired at the end and rushed a few things. But, as I remember, the profys recommend "paint more minis" as oppose to sitting over one for eternity trying to get it to perfection.

  6. Fairly simple paint job on these two, at the time I needed a quick win to boost my mood.

  7. So here's another from the last year. I was unmotivated at first because the facial detail was a bit lacking but I like the way it turned out.

  8. Hey y'all! Had to skip 40 pages because I just don’t have the mental energy for it, but I wanted to share some happy news. My job search has finally paid off and I’ve been offered an accounting position with an organization that helps people! I’m so excited about! It represents an approximate 10k increase in my yearly income, it has benefits, and my work will be helping people!

  9. Presenting the Chubby Lamplighter, along with his friends Skinny Lamplighter and Lady Lamplighter (who I haven't painted yet), who are part of the Jedza set from the game Malifaux by Wyrd Games. Despite loving Malifaux figures I stopped buying them because they just look so awful when I paint them up, but after seeing this set being unboxed on Youtube I had to pick them up. Not my best work in general (I think I spent more time reattaching the incredibly fragile dangly bits on his staff than painting him), but much better than I usually manage with the Malifaux range.

  11. Presenting Calculus, she's an alchemist from the Alchemy Guild wielding some sort of alchemy flute, she was made by Steamforged Games as part of their discontinued Guild Ball range. Not too happy with this one. Her face and hair came out okay, but it went downhill from there, couldn't even do a decent job taking piccys. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

  13. I picked up this mini at Reapercon 2019 intending to paint it up for the next year. As it turned out, I hadn't started painting it yet when I started packing for Reapercon 2020. So I got to working on it and surprisingly got it finished in time to enter it into the competition (even though the judges chose another of my entries to judge). One advantage to painting him at Reapercon was that I could ask Jason Weibe about some of the details on him that weren't cast quite as clearly as we'd have all liked (he was great and even found the original render to show me).

  14. Hey everyone, here is another model on which I practiced marble painting as an alternative to regular stone. This 77634, Graveyard Statue was sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

  15. Normally i wait to post show off once I'm done basing. In this case, I was just using it to test some colors. Using the color wheel, i picked a triad i tight was fun. I figured this gross figure needed a green belly. From there i looked at what made up the triad: orange and purple. Challenge accepted. I took the green bottom and touched it up with a hint of purple. Then took the orange and did the same on top. I noticed the orange didn't take to showing the detail well, so i added a hint of yellow in the mix and it helped contrast the shaded spots. Still wanted

  16. I did it! I painted up this wonderful guy sent to us in the Ghoulie Bag. Not gonna lie, he was stupid fun to paint, everything from the chiseled physique to the pumpkins on his back to the bone-handled sickle to the bits of pulp drool coming out his mouth. Comments and advice welcome.

  18. This is an odd mini that started life as a Halloween decoration. I picked it up from Michael's last year, mounted it on a 50mm base and added some green stuff for the muscly bits, eyeball and crystal growths.

  22. Posting this month, October's projects finished so far (and no sorry I'm not an Orc-tober person). Painting at least one wizard a month is a requirement is it not? When I saw this fig I just luved the Arabian vibe I got off it.

  23. I've never painted dark skin before, so I used this little guy as a test piece. I repainted and re-glazed him quite a few times, so I can't really recreate the exact recipe. It really felt like entering new territory for me, and often the paints did things that surprised me and looked very unlike dark skin (I'm looking at you, RMS Walnut!). I'm sure I'll revisit that subject, there is so much more to learn and find out! Also, this guy is really shiny, my Anti Shine didn't do it's magic this time. 🙁

  24. This little guy is just a background piece so i wanted him to be simple. I picked his color scheme to use red and green. Someone mentioned to try shading green with red so i thought, why not? His tunic is green shaded with red. Testing a new style of painting with the deep shading around the eyes (because i wanted to be lazy... don't judge me). Would love your feedback.

  25. Posting this month, October's projects finished so far (and no sorry I'm not an Orc-tober person). I chose her because I had picked out a barbarian woman I've always wanted to paint from my old mini's, and since whenever I paint caucasian flesh it's ussually fair to the pink shade, thus I wanted something with a lot of skin to try a deeper tone.

  29. Posting this month, October's projects finished so far (and no sorry I'm not an Orc-tober person). I've been wanting to do a group/series of hellborn/tiefling figures for fun but seems whenever I went to order something they would slip my mind and I get something else. Ah but reaper cursed me and gave me a free hellborn figure and now I can tell I'm gonna be ruined.

  30. Posting this month, October's projects finished so far (and no sorry I'm not an Orc-tober person). Normally when I prep mini's I do about six or so of them at a time, this month I found myself preping a baker's dozen...ouch. O well got plenty for next month too...hehe, anyways when sorting for something to paint she caught my eye, I still can't believe how really dainty she is.

  31. I just got home rom meeting up with my old shipmate. He's in town for a business conference, so he reached out to see what I was doing. Two and a half hours isn't near long enough to catch up on almost 30 years. It was a very pleasant way to spend the evening, though.

  35. So let me know if I get spammy with too many posts. I don't remember what drew me to this guy. I think I might have just wanted to paint a basic human in armour. I don't know if he reminds me more of Elvis Presley or Jay Leno. What do you think?

  36. I painted a witch GK a couple of years ago. It actually could still use a couple of touch ups that I've never gotten around to. No. The not a costume costume. Something with access to high level magic. If you get to do a little planning before the day you should be able to set yourself up pretty well.

  37. Mum and Grump do that. Not THAC0, but one or the other will say "Through the snow!" Then the other will chime in with "Up hill!" Then both "Both ways!" If asked why they will say "Waiting for the electrician." "Or someone like him." Alternating. A shared childhood, five hundred miles apart. I've married me Mum!

Side note, if the opportunity presents, Leavenworth is worth visiting. It wasn't where we went, but we got lunch there, as we went by. The Saga of the Well has moved to the 'Waiting on the County for The Bestowing of the Permit' stage, as of.. um.. Thursday? Thursday. Might have actually been Wednesday, but I'unno, I'm loopy. Monday was 'Hi, we need to find your septi- WTF DID THEY DO?!', which involved two or three guys and some kind of

  43. BONES V arrived. I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the War Mammoth. Figuring it was again a pigmy Mammoth like the last time but this one is bigger. Needed to pay for Customs due to the Brexit thing, so I will probably refrain from ordering anything outside the EU for now unless I really really need it.

  45. Since I haven’t had a WIP in a very long time, I thought this mini would be perfect for it. I plan to paint her up for a Christmas gift for a friend and figured to keep me on track I’d do a WIP. I have a few minis in progress she’ll be my main priority after my Darksword Stephanie Law Bard. I prepped her and primed yesterday after the humidity finally dropped. My current projects in various stages on my desk. And just the pinup after some prep work A few places I could have spent more time on but figured I’ll prime and see what stands out.

R.I.B.B.I.T. internal operations thanks you for your tip and requests that you stand ... right there, no 8" to the left ... for the next five minutes. See following point. R.I.B.B.I.T. intelligence indicates this is actually M.E.O.W. subterfuge and can be countered with standard orbiting death rays I mean space laser pointers.
