  1. I love the color choices-- the contrast between his knuckle/thigh bracer things and the green of his body is awesome!
  2. Thanks! The eyes came out slightly messy, but I like how they ended up. The color is Citadel Waystone Green, which is very thick and glossy. :-) Thanks!! I really struggled with her lips... I wanted to paint them fleshier, but I took a good look at my cats and many cats from the web (is it really possible to only look at a FEW internet cat pictures?) and chose to leave them close to the fur color and have the lip seam black. It would have been easy to give her pink lips, but also ridiculous. :-)
  3. One thing I love about this model: the jewelry. This sphinx has been hanging out guarding the pyramid for a really long time, but every day she gets up and accessorizes. :-)
  4. I had been thinking about putting a pin through his leg to bend him more into shape, but his ankles are very skinny so I was concerned I might poke through to one side and ruin it entirely. I'll ping customer service. I got this guy from the bones3 Kickstart we, so maybe they'll take pity on me :-)
  5. At some point while I was painting him, the troll kind of shrunk. It was like he was exposed to sunlight and it caused him to shrivel up into a low crouch. One could imagine that he's ready to pounce upon a Halfling, or is raising his hands in surrender to a much smaller aggressor. Or some kind of bizarre bonesium catastrophe befell him. I know I could have warped him back into place if this had happened BEFORE I started painting him, but I've never seen it happen AFTER the mini has cooled. Has anyone else seen that? If so, what causes it, so I can NOT do it again? I'm otherwise pretty happy with how ugly he is. In particular, I tried a different basing technique that LittleBlueberry described for me awhile back, which is definitely fun to do.
  6. It's not a purse. It's European! Sometimes, one simply must bring a snack when going clubbing. It works up quite the appetite. This Ogre's snack however is quite literally finger-licking good.
  7. This Ogre is quite chill. He's just lounging around with the club, ready to throw down but not in too big a hurry to. He has his swagger on, and is wearing his neck bling. Oh, and is that a magical pager on his belt?
  8. "Remember that just because I'm blue does not mean I'm made of water. All that squashing of adventurers into Tiny bits can definitely bring out one's thirst. That's why I drink Ogre-Aid(tm) from my shot glasses made from the skulls of my enemies! It slakes my thirst and restores electrolytes, but without all those nasty carbs. Do you think I got this ripped drinking colas?" :-)
  9. A DaughterOfCheese abandoned the painting of this model, so it ended up in the Simple Green for awhile and I decided that her beautiful dress would look better with tentacles protruding from beneath it. Beautiful, sickly devil-flesh striding across a hellscape while she peels back her hood to reveal sinister horns. And it does get cold in hell, so don't forget your scarf. Or anyway, that was the plan. It turns out that her color made her difficult to photograph. The tentacles are formed around unwound paperclips, which were easy to twist into the right shape, but the flesh I added (green stuff, some clay, etc) was difficult to get to the right proportion without making it fall off. I'm new to this whole "modding" thing, so I'd LOVE feedback on it. :-)
  10. This Ogre struggles every day with his bizarre deformity. Fortunately, he was raised by a forward-thinking tribe who provided him excellent dental care and outfitted him with scale mail, a masterwork club, and lots of bags. Now all grown up, he shuffles along striking fear into the hearts of his proud tribe's enemies!
  11. Mold lines, it seems, are my weakness. Fortunately, this model, which I absolutely love, had lots of wrinkly bits that I could use to try and hide them. :-)
  12. Thanks! Yeah, I like the way his color came out. Kind of an ochre ogre. ;-)
  13. I speed-painted this guy for an upcoming encounter because I was surprised not to have a dwarf miniature with a hammer. I really like how he came out, and how the encounter went down. So yay!
  14. In some alternative Bavarian highland, a medieval Maria Von Trapp draws breath to sing, only to be viciously cut down by this severe and armored woman's wicked blade. "No happiness!" she seems to say. I remember using a maddening mixture of murky metallics on her armor to get the shiny blue, but it went on too thick to show many details and wash would not stick to it. Ooops. :-/
  15. Sometimes an Ogre just has to go clubbing. :-) Tried a different painting technique on this guy and a few others. I think it works reasonably on the skin, but still looks kind of scratchy in some places; murky in others.
  16. SonOfCheese and I spent a few days painting snakes. I decided that my snake, although hooded, was not a cobra. It was just hanging out with its treasures atop a comfortable stone, watching us, and waiting. Eventually I was asked to stop making hissing noises.
  17. I just realized that I'd been painting but had not posted any of them. :-) I like this mini, but I often struggled with the impression that she was putting her head on for the day. :-) Painting her was fun, but I had a lot of problems with her mold lines, and she came out very muddy in some ways.
  18. Nice blending! The contrast is awesome, and the lower half is so intense that it seems to glow. One consideration: if it IS glowing, it doesn't look like it's lighting anything else up though (still amazing).
  19. Oh bother, this silly old bear has misplaced his honey! Fortunately, he can get plenty of golden treasure from the forest beehives using that handy axe. Not to mention swarms of XP!
  20. A coworker buddy found this guy at a thrift store under "knickknacks". Yay! Or, I should say, "Ia-ee!" :-) But I got slightly blocked on painting him. He's been sitting on the kitchen table unfinished for about a month. So I thought I'd post him to unblock myself. I haven't decided whether I'm going to keep the base he came on... it looks kind of beachy, which is neat, but I feel like more could be done. One concern I have about the figure is that its base is only about 4-5" across, while the Pathfinder's Cthulhu stats show a 40' Space, and I like the base to match that (at 28mm scale, of course). So a substantial expansion may be called for... Anyway, this is him so far, needing substantial additional paint... I should do this more often. The camera has clearly managed to find all my missing mold lines. :-/
  21. I was stuck on another project, so I took a break and painted some other minis. This one looks better in real life... Color correction seems to be destroying the image :-/ Yendrensovith is an NPC in my currently-paused campaign; a drow of spectacular violence and a complicated past. For the curious, more information is available here.
  22. Thanks!!! I actually didn't know what their canonical colors were until I searched for the image so I could title this post. Very, very different :-D
