  1. I've been fiddling with this character for months and finally finished him this weekend. I'm using him as my player character in a Tomb of Annihilation campaign - he is Icewind Josen, half-elf rogue and relic hunter. The whip was fun, but it makes him hard to fit into carrying cases for transport between gaming sessions!
  2. I haven't painted much lately, but I did make time to paint this for a close friend's D&D character. So far she seems happy with it, so I'm happy. Sorry for the lighting - forgot to take a proper photo before gifting it, so I had to hold it almost inside a lamp.
  3. Thanks! I'm afraid that the campaign she's in is set in the 5th edition timeline, so Minsc has been dead for awhile. I may have to do something involving a descendant of either him or Boo, though.
  4. I haven't painted much in the past couple months, so I thought I'd correct that by repainting an old model that I had painted when I started the hobby and had stripped down awhile back. I thought I had pictures from earlier, but apparently I have lost them over time. Oh well. Here she is, my Flaming Fist mercenary version of Isabeau:
  5. Thanks! I added the wood grain. I've done better grain before I think, but I didn't spend too much time on out because the client also wanted a gold design on the lute.
  6. I have a few minis displayed at my local game shop and was contacted a couple weeks ago about doing a custom job for a D&D player's Heroforge mini. This is the first time I've dealt with their Premium plastic, and it is much better than the detail plastic they used before - though there were a lot more little plastic spurs that I didn't entirely erase all trace of. I'm pretty happy with it, and the client is happy, so mission accomplished!
  7. I painted this figure last year, but I like the model a lot and wanted to give her a different treatment. I chopped off most of her staff and stuck on the blade from one of Tiviel's daggers. I envisioned her as an evil druid, but I figure she's versatile enough to represent a number of classes in D&D.
  8. It won't be right next to them, but close enough - I have 15-20 painted models for sale on a shelf there at any given time. They don't move too often, but the shop likes having examples of painted Reaper stuff on hand to inspire new painters and D&D players there. The base is a little bit of freehand. I just sanded off one of my Reaper bases and did the pattern fairly quick before gluing the figure on top. I thought about bringing the OSL down to reflect off the wood, but I didn't want to make the light stretch that far lest I get too tied up in colored blue lighting on the
  9. I painted this guy over the weekend to toy around with the LED Blue paint I haven't gotten to use much since I got the MSP 2014 expansion set last holiday season. I'm not terribly happy with the OSL, and could have spent hours more doing more glazes and highlights, but he's going on a shelf for sale at my LGS and I made myself limit my time for extra details since I've found there's an upper limit on what the local D&D players are willing to spend. Anyway, I really liked the sculpt and had a lot of fun with him. Here's hoping he sets something on fire on a gaming table soon!
  10. Nissa doesn't have pupils or irises that are visible. I based it off the art here.
  11. Thanks all! The shield was definitely the most challenging, and I got the scale of the griffon off a bit so his wings aren't fully visible (though I think it still works as a stylistic choice). This Bones model has some bending on the top of the shield that heat couldn't fix, so it made a great focus for some battle damage.
  12. I got the Arena of the Planeswalkers boardgame over a year ago and hated the factory paint jobs, especially for Nissa. For those unfamiliar, she is an elvish nature mage with facial and not, as the stock model might suggest, a twisted demon monkey. Finished pictures first! I gave her staff a blue glow to match her latest character development in Amonkhet. The model's detail wasn't great, especially around the face, but I'm decently happy with it. Now brace yourself. Here's the "before" image. Plastic surgery was required.
  13. I apparently never uploaded this one. He was a commission for a D&D friend at my local shop awhile back. The use of metallic paint and the color scheme was requested, and I suggested a griffon on the shield since the character rides them.
  14. I've had this pirate on my shelf for a little bit and decided last night to carve off his pistol (since most D&D settings don't have guns) and put some color on him. Now get gets to sit on my LGS's shelf until someone picks him up for their D&D character.
  15. I've had this guy since the first kickstarter and have put off painting him due to his distinct lack of a nose in the bones version. A couple nights ago I decided to perform some rhinoplasty with green stuff so I could put him to use in a D&D game. I went with metallic paints rather than spend too much time blending NMM on his armor, and it doesn't hurt that he'll look shiny on the table. The design on the shield is the symbol of the Forgetten Realms deity Tempus, but it also works for the Red Knight (whose red horse chess piece is a less exciting design to paint).
  16. Looks great! Especially for your 3rd mini. You captured a lot of small details and did a very clean job separating things like the bare metal on the shield and armor from the blue sections.
  17. Very good reason for that! Yellow is a hateful color that sucks up all of your time and still doesn't look right when you finally surrender and call it done.
  18. I haven't posted anything here in awhile, so I thought I would fix that. I've had Aviriel since the first kickstarter, and finally decided to paint her as a gift for a friend. The shield was definitely my favorite part to paint, though I didn't get the blends quite as smooth as I would have liked on the gold there.
  19. I painted this guy as a commission for a friend a few weeks ago. Apologies for the poor lighting and background in the pictures - I finished it away from my usual setup before handing it over. I was told to make the clothing a bit off for an adventurer to showcase the character's inexperience.
  20. I like to keep a stock of painted miniatures available for the D&D crowd at my local game shop, but I always struggle to keep enough male adventurers on the shelf before people snatch them up. Logrim here was a fairly quick project intended to fill the ranks somewhat. I decided to stick on true metallic paints for him to save time, and didn't do anything crazy with the tabard. Still, I'm happy with him and I'm hopeful that he'll be smiting evil on a tabletop soon!
  21. I painted a metal version of this guy awhile ago but decided to toss some paint on my Bones version. It's got a few flaws that I didn't spend time on correcting too much, but I've already had a friend ask to buy it for a D&D character so I don't feel so bad about them.
  22. A quick paint job I threw together sometime last week. I avoided NMM and decided to invest the time I would have spent there into making her cloak pop out a bit instead.
  23. It has been awhile since I posted a mini here, and have been forgetting to take pictures before leaving the figure elsewhere. I painted Bailey here on a whim, since female dwarves are rare and rogues even rarer. I tried a new idea on the cloak's trim, and I'm pretty happy with it.
  24. Love the glow and the blue highlights on black. Makes for a great contrast against the red.
  25. Another model from Bones I that I have had sitting on a shelf for far too long. I decided to cut off the standard Bones base and painted on a stone floor pattern rather than sculpt one. I'm fairly happy with how it all came out.
