  1. fanguad - wow! I didn't see yours before I did mine, honest, or I'd have given credit if I'd have stolen borrowed your paint scheme. Amazing OSL on your guy though, that really takes it to the next level. I guess this guy just inherently wears those colors or something.
  2. Yay February. 1. Townsfolk: village rioter (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59288-77140-townsfolk-village-rioter/) 2.

  3. First up in my February miniatures, the townsfolk: village rioter. I was just looking for something semi-fun inbetween other, more serious projects. I was a little worried his pants were too high contrast, it kind of makes him look cartoony, but that's not so bad, I guess. I always struggle painting eyes so when I got them both pointed the same direction I left it. But of course it leaves him looking angrily uphill (perhaps at Dr. Frankenstein's castle before he storms it). And he's not as bright as I wanted him to be color-wise, but I guess that's okay for realism. I had intended to line him
  4. Great color combo on them. I agree, painting white hair is difficult. Eyes look good, just try to shade them a bit next time and they will start to look perfect. I think the feat here is you got two minis off your shelf of shame, way to go!
  5. He is amazing. I love what you've done to make him look so realistic. And great job on the base, it makes him fun in addition to splendid.
  6. Very clever. That is some impressive freehand on the green.
  7. Amazing eyes! Lovely job on them though, I like how poofy they look.
  8. Great job on the eyes and the eyebrows, excellent face detail.
  9. These are such fun minis. I love your vibrant color selection. Especially on the strumpet, that red looks great. And got to 2nd the amazing face on the lady in yellow.
  10. Clever on the bases, and I really like the oldschool feel of the LTPK color scheme.
  11. Alright and finished my last mini for January, here's a helpful recap: 1) Seltyiel: (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/58973-89014-seltyiel-iconic-magus/) 2) Almaran: (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59072-77058-almaran-the-gold-paladin/) 3-8) 6 orcs: (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59200-77002-77003-77019-orc-archer-spearman-swordsman-18-orc-army/) and finally... 9) Virina, the not-succubus (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59212-77067-virina-female-demon/)
  12. Just finished my last mini for January. Virina, the not-succubus. I think based on the nudity I need to link to her. So follow the links to her. front back There's a bit of weirdness that seems to be happening around her rib cage on the sculpt that I just couldn't figure out so that's just painted skin tone. Not super proud of her skin, looks a little uneven and chalky. But for tabletop from a little ways a way it's not terrible. Happy with her hair. I'll take any suggestions to how to avoid whatever I did wrong with her skin. I mean, I think part of the goofy is the sculpt,
  13. Finally finished my orcs. I forget how that works, but finished my last SIX of the orcs (the whole 18 orc extravaganza is in the show-off here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59200-77002-77003-77019-orc-archer-spearman-swordsman-18-orc-army/ ) So those were 3 different models, but 6 minis. Anyways, definitely puts me over four for the month. And I just finished another one today because I guess I paint too fast. Still need to clear coat her and get some pictures, then onwards to February.
  14. Finally finished my 18 strong orc army (okay it's not really an army, it's for D&D). Last six were just finished yesterday (the blues and purples). What can I say? These guys are really cool minis. I really love their "old school" feel and they are perfect for the battle mat. Like all my "armies" they are uniquely color coded for easy identification (I attack the blue one with the sword). Their skin is the 29810 / 29811 / 29812 HD mossy / turf / meadow green triad. I thought about making them a bit more cartoony but in the end went with a more realistic green. Comments and criticism always
  15. That is pretty darn good for your first mini, you should be very proud! I won't show you any of MY first minis... And agreed, drybushing is still a struggle for me, for all the reasons you outlined. You should be proud of that, it's a great paint job.
  16. This is kind of my strategy. I might have finished if I had started sooner and didn't keep buying more stuff. My first entry in the vampire box was a handful my sister gave me from her set (since they had so many she felt like I could take a few I wanted for heroes). Then I went in on a group buy with some friends and got about a third of a box. Then the huz and I decided that wasn't enough so we went out and bought a whole vampire box. Then we've bought a ton of the non-kickstarter bones available, and a ton of "extras" of stuff from the first kickstarter, and I still buy the occasional metal
  17. Love his color selection and all the colors on his books. Only suggestion would be to keep increasing the contrast on your next minis. I have the same issue and I'm still working on it.
  18. Thanks everyone. Liner to me looks a bit thick and uneven on his back (but I've so many bones to paint no way am I redoing at this point). Appreciate the suggestions/feedback, planning to try again with liner in a few minis from now.
  19. Better get a move on! Don't hurry me, perfection takes time! And I get to quote another pithy engineering saying: perfection is the opposite of done! :p Or don't throw out the good in pursuit of the perfect!
  20. I love the mini. Excellent paint job, especially on his metal. The pig looks very natural and realistic, and love the diorama work you did there.
  21. My 2nd official mini for the month done (and photo'd, I think I already had him almost done when I posted last), Almaran the Gold, Paladin: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59072-77058-almaran-the-gold-paladin/ Now just need to finish these 6 remaining orcs left on my plate, than I can post my whole rainbow army of orcs at once.
  22. My 2nd official mini of the month (as part of the resolutionary challenge). This is my 3rd attempt ever at flames and I think it turned out better than my last miniature. Was looking at the inspiration gallery and liked the gold/red one in there so was originally going to go with that, but the huz convinced me to try gold and white and I think I really like the color combo. Also after getting all the gold down I got all cocky and decided to try liner for the first time. So this is my first ever attempt lining. I think it turned out okay for a first attempt? It definitely adds to the mini, thou
  23. First one officially done for January (some I started in December and finished January that I'm not counting). Seltyiel, Iconic Magus: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/58973-89014-seltyiel-iconic-magus/ Next on the plate is to finish Almaran (he's almost done, I'll post a show-off when he is) and that and my final 6 orcs should put me over for my goal for the month (they're only 3 different models anyways). Really enjoying this challenge, it is pushing me. Since I have a lot of 20 bones to finish painting and then a lot more 20 more showing up for bones II I really need to
  24. Here's the first mini that I started and completed in January. His painting scheme is to match the art for the character. This was only my second experiment with fire. I feel like I should've used more midtones and orange on his flaming bird but for my 2nd attempt I'm okay with it (and as he is one of many I have multiples of, I need to just start to get stuff done not be a perfectionist). I tried to take a lot of the advice from prior show-off threads in which people were extremely helpful and told me I needed more contrast in my layers. I did feel a little limited since I was trying to stick
