Mostly Harmless (2/8)



  1. It's here: http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/previews/sku-down/77390
  2. Yeah, I noticed that, too. I'm going to go back over it with a matte varnish. I guess I missed some spots. Thanks. :)
  3. From one of my Friday Pathfinder games, I present Ojar. He is our cavalier, and has several children with the queen, but we refuse to call him "king" on account of how terrible a leader he has proven himself to be. He is mounted upon his noble elk steed Ozmataz and wields his legendary falchion Buckshank. He flies the flag of our kingdom Arcadia, which we have built up over the past few irl years using Kingdom building and Downtime rules. The colors and designs are by the player's request, except for the red horse armor, which I painted red because the original metallic made it all look washed out. I tried to use static grass, but I haven't figured out how to make it not look awful. This took entirely too long to finish, but life happens. Comments and criticism requested. This is a conversion piece. The horse is from Lord Vandrian (14186) with the antlers from Beastmen of the Wyld (02900). The body is the Pathfinder Iconic cavalier (60045), and the falchion is from a weapon pack, but I don't remember which because I just have a pile of weapons. On a somewhat related note, do any of you have a good way of transporting larger minis like this? It doesn't fit in my small Chessex foam-lined box, so I've been carrying it in a cardboard box with bubble wrap. I have several larger minis I regularly use in my tabletop games and would like a better solution. Thanks for looking!
  4. Thank goodness for having two months. Life is finally settling down and I finally have a chance to paint.
  5. I'm in for the painted minis, but I can throw my preferences up here based on what I've seen other people post. I have no allergies, but I can't stand pineapple and pineapple-flavored foods. Chocolates and gummy candies are great, and generally soft snacks are better than hard ones. Hot chocolate is always welcome. I do drink tea, but not coffee.
  6. Is it bad if I don't want food-type things and just want to exchange minis? Does that make me some kind of Grinch figure?
  7. Quite a few people don't seem to like the color scheme, but I like it. I also think it's well-executed. I love how the blue/white complements it, as well as the freehand cherry branches. Lots of depth, and each part is discrete. I do think that on some of them there is a bit too much pink that isn't balanced out by other colors, but based on the models I understand why. Well done! I hope your client appreciates them!
  8. I sent in a PM. Hopefully I did it right. This'll be my first exchange. Do these have to be themed or is there anything special for it being a Secret Sophie thing?
  9. Very nice. I love the transitions, and how following from the tail forward gets you a nice smooth gradient that ends in terrifying teeth. And maybe this guy lives in someplace like Fuyun Multi-colored Bay in Hotan, Xinjiang :D
  10. Nicely done. This very effectively shows the difference between where my painting skill is now (right) and where I want it to be (left). All those skills that make the new one stand out are the things I'm trying to figure out now.
  11. Nice job. Would that I could be so grossly incandescent.
  12. Thank you all. Your kind words helped to reassure her that her effort wasn't bad at all. She was very hard on herself for her "sloppiness" caused by her shakiness, but I assured her that it was something we all deal with, and her first attempt was far better than my own. When I told her BLZeebub's suggestion of using the shakiness to her advantage, she admitted that she had started to figure that out by the end.
  13. I took a trip out to visit a friend while she's in the States. One night we sat down and painted some Imperial Assault miniatures. She loves Star Wars, so I introduced her to the hobby. She was pretty discouraged because her hands were shaky, but I thought it was a great start, and I'd like to share them with you.
  14. I really like how this turned out. Especially the shield. Can you describe what you did to get that effect?
  15. I agree with them. That leather is fantastic. I don't know how to do leather like that. Can you describe how you did it? I love that mini, too, but the dagger on mine snapped off and it's so small that I don't know how to securely replace it... Ah well. I think a cobblestone base would look really cool and thematic for him, but I get that basing can be hard. I'm still working on that myself. Overall I think you did a great job on him! I like the backstory, too. I'm a sucker for backstories.
