  1. You can feel the sinister intent! I love the whole bandit series from bones 4. You should do the malevolent axe dude next! Edit: I see you did do him. All your thieves look dirty and ready for mischief!
  2. Love your color variations, much more realistic than just taking a color out of a bottle and assembly line painting them (which is what I did. All 30ish goblins, all at once...) I totally get what you mean about doing so many tiny models at once! Yours turned out very well. Maybe just do the rest while you have the color variations down pat?
  3. -T.E. Lawrence handsome guy in turban and robes. Id like a more princely fantasy adventurer of the desert sands type, maybe holding a walking staff.
  4. I love this sculpt, he’s such a smarmy little ne’er do well! I painted mine all in black, I really like the colors you picked. He will be a colorful target for the players
  5. New to painting?? That looks great! I love the color variation you did on it!
  6. Very nice! Classic hill giant and great colors on the female Minotaur. I love that figure, really interesting sculpt!
  7. very first thing I painted was ALL the goblins. Speed painted, went for speed over quality. The reason is that we were starting a brand new campaign and I wanted to start with trash, low level mobs to start off with, so I needed them and needed them ASAP. After I finished these I did the kobolds, and those were the ones we ended up fighting. I am focusing on painting all of my figures as per their 2e descriptions and illustrations. So they got cute little red accents here!
  8. You did a good job on this figure. I hate this figure and the style of it, I don’t care for the shoulders being giant and big hands with a tiny head. I have it assembled and sitting on my table, waiting to get painted. Going to follow your lead and do a simple dark steel paint job on him!
  9. Turned out really wonderful, and I had the same idea to paint her like Barbara eden. I am very grateful to you for posting this that I can use it as a guideline!
  10. I just finished painting these too (to add to my “trash skeleton mob bag”). I love how much sturdier these are compared to the old skeleton set. Yours turned out very nice, I left my base the standard stone. We did exactly the same color scheme too.
  11. That’s incredible! There are so many minis I’m not too thrilled about painting...you have inspired me to try “practicing” more, especially if it can transform it like you did!
  12. I’m also going to make a quick comment on how much I love the quality of the bones 4 material. I prefer this slightly sturdier plastic. I love to assembly line paint trash mobs for my d&d game. I had bought the previous packs of bones goblins, archers, and orcs and was not impressed with their quality. The skeletons in particular had a tendency to look like they were always knocked back on their spindly heels. The spears, swords, were almost always bent and never seemed to straighten out. I love the new 24 bonus pack of goblins in bones 4, and the armored ones...and the skeletons! They all feel more rigid and have better detail than those early bones figures I got so frustrated with. Lots of fun painting them!
  13. -ladies with giant ball gowns A Whole court of ladies in giant hoop skirt gowns of different styles and designs. If one of them could be cut with lines to make doing plaid easier that would be nice but not required. Ruffles, masks, hairstyles up and down. Ladies wearing hennin cones cones would be nice, too. A classic damsel in distress princess with a very full skirt, cone hat with veil coming out! Ladies of the court with double hennins and big veils. Men with crackow shoes! Just classic medieval figures that would look like they belong in old school AD&D!
  14. Don't give up! They are gorgeous, really make me want to up my painting game!
  15. I have a few wiz kids figures waiting in the wings, I'm interested to see your finished piece. I really should work on them, I have a couple bugbears that need to be done and could be useful in monday's game.
  16. Thought I'd give a quick in progress update. I ordered a Cordelia from a site and haven't received it yet...sigh....but I did get the civil war minis, and they are actually very pretty. Here is a very rough in progress shot. Note that I am using them in DnD, so the colors are not historically accurate. I also thought the one holding a parasol looked like a wand, so snipped it down and it looks like what I want. they are are very nice for the price! I have a ton of civil war soldiers now too, lol.
  17. That Cordelia one is really good! I could probably manage to green stuff the gun on the dress into a basic purse or something....I'm going to look for it now! Edit: Lame...only one Cordelia figure on ebay and it's already painted. I think I'm going to need to get it unpainted because then I can modify it easily, it would be too hard to try and break off the glued rifle from the dress in a glued model. Gah! Well if anyone has an unopened one they want to sell me, let me know!
  18. Those are exactly right....but too small! I use Reaper (much closer to the 25mm) and Dark Sword (true 28mm.) I think I will buy them anyway and enjoy painting them up, more as a good representation of what I'm looking for! Well I ordered the Old Glory set...maybe someday we will get bigger scales of them to paint!
  19. I have the cinderella figure and it's alright....nothing is quite like what I'm looking for. I would love to see those figures, we should lobby together for sculpts of that type. I did buy the fairy figure with a fairly large dress and just didn't install her wings, that turned out pretty nice although it's the wrong style. It's hard fitting a figure to a specific character.
  20. WHY is it so hard to find good civil war era southern belle style figures? I have been looking forever for something like this: That big hoop skirt style dress. There has been only ONE actual figure that I've found that even closely resembles this style, and I have two of them: Which works...but...it's boring having the same figure with different paint styles. Has anyone seen anything like these available anywhere?
  21. What is the name of this sculpt? I'd love to get one myself. Just need to know the name Nevermind I'm a moron. Her name is the title. Duh. She's turning out very nice. I love the rainbow effect.
  22. That blue flame looks really cool. I like the yellow and blue contrast.
  23. That is turning out very nice. I love the flame effect you did and the object source lighting (Which I never bothered with) is turning out really good on your model!
  24. This was the picture I used as a reference for fire. It helped a lot: Bright white at the bottom, yellow above that, orange above that, then red at the very tip top of the flame. I know you were limited in colors but this might give a good example of how to work with it. Here is my Domur that I finished recently using the above fire reference: I painted him to look like a Final Fantasy XI Black mage. I wasn't too excited about this figure, but really liked how he turned out. I am a painting noob too.
