  1. I set myself a goal to at least get six miniatures before February's end (putting myself at the halfway point of how many minis total I did last year ), and by golly I met it. First up a Stone Golem from Bones. Nothing fancy but I'm really happy with the rough texture he ended up with. Next up a minor tweak of Morbius from Heroclix into a Wight. And because I went with a red cape and gray hair, it failed to stop looking like Morbius. It just worked so naturally as a Wight though. And lastly, two more ghouls for the road. I originally wanted to do all my ghouls in one go but doing the same sculpt over and over was driving me nuts, so I finished this one, left one with just part of a base skin color and the other unpainted, and primed up and painted up a Castle Ravenloft ghoul to round out the group.
  2. Even though I'd prefer having ghouls of a more "pulp fantasy" aesthetic, these Heroclix Jackal and Vermin minis cost me less than a dollar apiece and you can't argue with a bargain like that. I have three more of that Vermin so I guess I'll be doing them down the line too.
  3. Wizkids made a 2-pack of Purebloods (a male warrior and a lady bard) for their Nolzur's line. There's also an older lady Yuan-Ti pureblood in the Hasbro line of minis. Otherwise... The entire point of purebloods is how well they blend in with humans so just paint some human minis with serpent eyes or with some scaly textures on their hands.
  4. Wonder who'll pick up on who this homages.
  5. I have, cashed in my first Kickstarter pledge to get a Goliath done up to look like Fezzik. Sadly despite being a Goliath he is woefully undersized unless I exclusively use him with 25mm pieces. Quality is solid but it's hard to tell how good the detail is until I prime it, as their 3D prints come in black.
  6. I feel like I overdid it on this Geryon... In particular his skirting and belt made of flayed skin and entrails.
  7. Ok but again, a nice suit like a modern tuxedo/butler uniform or something more befitting a medieval/renaissance fantasy servant?
  8. Like... a modern butler or a fantasy equivalent?
  9. There are far too many times when I'll fiddle on the creator and end up with "I don't know what the fudgesicle that is but I want it. I want my players to fight it."
  10. Ending 2020 on a decent note, with 11 ground-up paintjobs (2019 only beats me on the technicality that I fixed up two older minis and also added easy paint details to a prepaint for a total of 12) in total for this year, the final two being these two converted Heroclix. First up, Merlyn from DC comics became this archer with striped breeches and a mint-colored shirt. I did him yesterday alongside the old TSR minis but I sat on it, just wondering if I should redo the shirt. I ultimately did not. And then this old Ulik from Marvel Comics... First I was going to do a more thorough conversion into the weak archdevil Bael (seriously, his challenge rating in 5E makes him an easier fight than your average Pit Fiend), then just an armored Barlgura... before ultimately just deciding to make him a generic punchy swol devil. And yeah, he's just glued on his base and I did nothing to cover up the glue mess, sue me.
  11. Another TSR piece done tonight. I think I just ended up coloring him with paints I already had on hand. I kinda like how colorful he turned out.
  12. These old TSR pieces are so clunky and awkward yet have their own charm. I have two of this lady monk, originally the weapon was this big glaive polearm but in both cases, my blade is missing. Which I like better, works as a crosier instead. Gives her more versatility, as she can be a monk, a cleric or even a pious magic-user. ...I didn't feel like painting eyes on this one, they were already googly enough on the larger Ral Partha paladin I did earlier in the month.
  13. If anyone cares about this mini-quest of mine, I was checking old ebay sellers I'd bought from previously to see if maybe something in their inventory would spark something and came upon this guy from a Grenadier Julie Guthrie boxed set Lords of Decay, Gulgevar Taz. His scale armor overlaid with plate are really cool, sadly closer inspection made me realize the design of the helmet and pauldron are more draconic than serpentine. I'm still keeping him in the "maybe" list.
  14. Last week I got the mini I cashed in with one of my 3 Eldritch Foundry credits (two from backing the KS and one from winning a giveaway), a Goliath I did up as Andre The Giant. Sadly the piece is not as big as expected so he doesn't look Andre The Giant levels of imposing next to modern minis from Reaper and Wizkids. :/ Today I got a bundle of guards from Tehnolog's Castlecraft "Fantasy World" range, 32 minis (8 of each of the 4 models), really good for wanting city military/guards/militia with good local flavors (Roman and Norse are the two blatant ones, the other two look more flexible). Sadly one of the Romans' swords broke in transit so I'll need to whip the glue out.
