  1. I love the Grenadier "Gold Line," and this is one of my favorite sculpts from that series. Your colors give him a good, Hobbitish look
  2. That base is impressive! Best use of water effects I have seen in a long time.
  3. Morning all (or at least it's morning here in Maine). I finally got around to painting a Mousling, and I might be hooked! This little fellow took less than an hour, not including his base, but I was pretty pleased with the results. I love his mildly-grumpy expression: this is one barkeep who doesn't want to hear about your problems. Thanks for looking!
  4. The wood grain on the staff is quite exquisite. The simplicity of the metal staff "head" contrasts very well with the brights colors. Very good choices!
  5. The glowing green "feet" looks very good. I like that you repeated the same tones in the the mouth. I definitely feel your pain concerning the tooth mold line. Ugh. What a pain to remove that one.
  6. I swear I have a spider just like that living in the window frame next to my painting station. Really well done! I bet if you took some pictures of these things on the floor or something you could pass them off as real and scare the jeebus out of people.
  7. I forgot that I have this little dude kicking around somewhere. Consider me inspired! Very nice work!
  8. Thanks Inarah (and everyone else). I never had the nerve to try oil painting minis, but some of those early oil-painted ones still inspire me. John Blanche's oil-painted miniatures, for example, are awe-inspiring.
  9. Hello gals and guys, it's been too long since I shared anything. I've become somewhat obsessed with the licensed Advanced Dungeons & Dragons miniatures produced by Grenadier Models from 1980-1982. These are usually referred to as the "Gold Line." I never had a true appreciation for these sculpts as a kid, but with 35 years in the hobby. I've finally started to come around. I'm thinking of collecting the entire line now! I'm amassing quite a little collection. I will post up more pictures as models are finished as long as there is any interest. I'm sure that these models are older than some of the regular users, and I don't want to bore anyone. Thanks for looking. Comments and questions are always welcome!
  10. Very nice use of color. The muted browns and grays really works well with these big fellas.
  11. Really impressive painting too, great muted color scheme.
  12. The base is top notch! The skeleton might be a bit clean to have trudged through such a fetid swamp, but overall the effect is very good!
  13. This post is a follow-up to A Pair of Very Old Dwarfs and a Very Old Gnome. The best I could come up with for a size comparison was a work-in-progress conversion of a current GW plastic Dwarf warrior model. As you can see, they are pretty similar in size, but the overly-muscled design of the newer dwarfs makes the King look quite the shrimp! I've also included a picture including the newly-finished Queen Asabelle Dragonsmiter, and a group shot of the completed Court-to-date. Thanks for looking!
  14. The skin looks fantastic. Very well done. I've always loved this model: now I love it even more!
  15. Recently I was hired to paint another ten Circle Orboros Griffon models for a gentleman from Las Vegas. He already owns two that I painted last year, but he wanted to be able to field a veritable army of birdmen in his AD&D game. Here is the first of the batch.
  16. That is such a beautiful sculpt, and your paint job certainly holds up even after all of these years. The way you used color throughout accentuates the composition and brings the whole model together. The blue of the wizard's robes complements the orange of the dragon's wings perfectly. I could go on, but suffice to say well done!
  17. I have never seen this model before, but I love what I see. That color scheme is fantastic, very unexpected for a jester, and yet it works so well. Agreed with the previous comments about the basing in that it is top notch. You could darken the shadows on the brighter blue, but I honestly wouldn't unless it bothers you.
  18. Excellent contrast on the scales. I think you are right on about the sculptor. I've always been a little iffy about the pose of this model, but your painted version does it a service. Well done.
  19. Those look good! I have been after Citadel bugbears for quite a while now. They go for a pretty penny on ebay. You certainly did them justice.
  20. Welcome back! Looks like you'll fit right in.
