  1. I bought some of the bones mouslings for my wife to paint. Well she never got around to it and I needed a druid/animal mage who was going to animate a treant in our game so I slapped some paint of this little guy. Now I'm really looking forward to the bee keeper one. I also have the rogue and assassin set too. I stole the shooting star robe idea from someone who was doing an eye painting tutorial on youtube. Mine comes no where near his though.

    I'm jealous of how well you painted the back of the cloak!

    Wow! This is really nice. Thanks for explaining a bit on the process of the water.

    Rocketship from Dollar Store champagne flutes

    I love the creativity! If I had GM pull that out, I would immediately start bowing down and saying "I'm not worthy".

    Elf Paladin: Figure converted for D&D

    Very cool! I love the conversions. I think that this kind of creative spirit is a great boon to this community. Keep up the great work and keep on posting!

    77185: Large Earth Elemental

    It was super easy. Just base coat with sun yellow, dry brush with fire orange, paint some lava orange where you want to darken it, then paint some heavily diluted volcanic brown on in layers to add the crispy dark bits.

    77278 Sharkman

    I painted this dude in about an hour. It came in the mail the morning before the game session I was planning to use him. I'm using this mini for a recurring character who previously lost an arm (space dragon bit it off during a spelljammer campaign). It's great because the half shark/half man is very mild mannered, but fierce in a fight so the mini has a great presence outside of combat just to remind the players of the other side of the coin. We're running Strahd and I replaced the mad mage with another recurring character and had him magically regrow the sharkman's arm. I may come back and cut one of his arms off later though.

    03698: Tengu Rogue

    I painted this kenku today. I would have liked playing with other colors for the beak and feathers, but my players will be meeting their first wereraven in Curse of Strahd next week so I went with boring black on black. I was picking between this model and the owl bear from reaper bones. The owl bear has that fierce lycan look, but it was more expensive so the kenku won out. This is actually my first non-bones miniature to paint which added to my decision process. I used a grey brush on primer for it because I've been having problems with the humidity and the spray primer I usually use. This is my first time flocking a base as well. It turned out ok, but I'm sure there is a much better way to go about it. I'm going to clean the flocking up a bit once it completely dries. I was considering using a brush on sealer on it. My tests on the flocking show that the sealer completely ruins the snow look and makes it just look like slush so I'll probably just leave it be.

    Dice Tower Needing Finishing Touches

    Yeah I'm afraid to flock it due to wear. I was going to paint whatever details I was going to add. The past few game props I've made have been kind of a hassle to move due to fragility. I wanted to make something that I can just toss into the car and not worry about putting a seat belt on it. I was thinking about adding a suit of arms made from card stock over the door, but I really like your banner idea! Lot's of possibilities there!

    Dice Tower Needing Finishing Touches

    Wow! I don't think my tower is going to end up as nice as yours, George! My main inspiration is Daern's Instant Fortress. I wanted to make a multi use dice tower/play environment/display piece to show off some of my miniatures instead of just having them closed up in my case all the time.
