  1. Here we go. I have about the worst combo of camera and lighting on the planet, but I figure I probably ought to get some work up so I can get some C&C. These were taken with my Droid, but I don't have another camera at the moment. Hopefully I can remedy that soon. Also, my lamp is super harsh, but it's the only one I have right now. It's great for painting; not so much for photographing. Just a couple notes. Cassie is the first mini I ever painted. My colors are flat, she looks unfinished and cartoony, but I actually think the effect is fun. As little as I knew about painting a
  2. I was nervous about pinning, but the body pieces are pretty solid and I used a an unpowered drill, so it wasn't too hard to keep everything stable. The tutorial posted above looked pretty straight forward. One of these days I'll start a WIP thread. I can only procrastinate so much in one day, though.
  3. I actually did manage to drill down through the wing slots, so I got the upper body pinned to the legs, at least. And my green stuff came in the mail today, so I'm planning to get him filled, sculpted and primed by the weekend. The JB weld was actually pretty easy. I only had to hold it for 5ish minutes, and then I leaned him carefully on my lamp for a day. In the mean time, I almost finished my blacksmith today, which isn't as cool, but I've been meaning to paint him for a while so that counts.
  4. Ok. That's a great tutorial, and I'm sure I'll be referencing it in the future. I don't think I'm going to be able to pin this one, though. I had already glued him together with JB Weld when I posted the original thread, and it is holding in a fashion worthy of Viking song. That having been said, I guess I'll have to order some green stuff and some more paint for my base color before I can get started. I probably won't start a WIP thread until I get that in; not much progress to speak of until I can at least get him primed. In the mean time, I guess I'll just take extra time to clean
  5. Thanks, I'll have to get some of this...green stuff. And here I was hoping to prime this weekend... Corporea, what do you mean by "pin his joints"? I'm not a sculptor at all... And thanks for the welcome. I've actually been lurking these forums for about a year off and on, but mostly just looking at painting tutorials. Kind of intimidated by all the talent around here, but you seem a welcoming bunch, and I appreciate the encouragement.
  6. I've noticed that when I get minis that come in multiple pieces, they often don't line up precisely. The bigger the mini, the more gaps and distortion there seem to be. Specifically, I recently got #10006 Gauth (!!!GRANDFATHER! OF DRAGONS!!!)!) and the pieces of the body have some significant gaps now that I've got him assembled. I'd like to paint him for the 2015 annual diorama contest, but before I prime I'd like to make sure my finished product is going to look smooth and complete. Does anyone have any suggestions? What materials do you use? Etc. Also, I've never done a fig
  7. I've been working on one for a while that would ideally run from level 1-20. I'm one of those guys who loves a good story, so there's plenty of narrative in what I affectionately refer to as "The Four Winds" campaign. Humans have united and established a lasting empire that has ensured peace on the known world for almost 1,000 years. Dragons have been chased from the world, necromancy is a banned magic and undead are all but forgotten-nothing more than myth to frighten children. Elves, still nursing old wounds to pride, have retreated far to the east and are rarely seen in human land
  8. I've never done a mini bigger than standard size (25 mm I think?) and I've never submitted here before, but I think I'm going to see how I do with Gauth. I'm thinking a diorama.
