  1. Like that the one has just a gamberson, don't see that often on minis
  2. Sometimes with all the complex minis we paint you want to take a little break and paint something simple. Well this time around Erick was that mini for me. Really happy with the how the eyes came out. (got them on my first try ) and tried my hand at some simple heraldry.
  3. nice job. The one in the 2nd picture remind me of Bluto from Popeye
  4. this year plan on doing more with bases work on skin tones blending and glazing
  5. here is another size comparison for them, far left is a DnD chainmail half orc fighter mini, next is SKU 07007 Ragged Wound Tribe orc warrior, then Jade axe and spear warriors followed by SKU: 77059 Orc Berserker
  6. From the Mid 2000's attempt to revive the D&D Chainmail come this Battered Troll Skeleton which was the biggest mini in the Ahumut's Legion Faction box. He has been sitting unpainted for many years as I have found with many of the minis the D&D produced at the time they where a pain to assemble. In his case the full arm and no peg or post and his skull with a bit of the neck was its own part with a minuscule peg and post that did not fit right and would never be able to support the weight of the head. also with the base you had to hand cut the slot that you would tab him into which is the only time i have ever seen that on a mini base. So finally after adding metal post to his parts and getting him on a base I sat down and painted him. He is your basic skeleton but I do like the little additions on the mini such as the splint holding the leg together and the leather wrap with a nail holding the arm in place as well as the plate bolted on to the chest. It give the mini a bit more character. After finishing him i wanted to work on basing which is a part of the process i tend to neglect so tryed my had at some mud texture paint and still trying to get decent at using static grass and tufts. think it turned out alright but can always use more practice. Also interestingly enough he is about the same size as the 77004 Cave Troll. So its like a before and after diet pic
  7. One of a set of 4 thieves that came from Ral Partha many years ago 1 i panted long ago, 1 i lost, 1 still needs to be painted, and them there is this guy. was a fun paint but man those small eyes on old figures
  8. great work, looks like he's ready to sneak up behind someone and bop them on the head
  9. it was Dragon blue 29815 from the old HD line for the top and Vallejo electric blue for the belly wrap
  10. Started him a while ago but got pushed to the back burner until last month where I put the few final touches on him. I will also attest that it is a mere coincidence that the colors I used made him look kind of like Link from Breath of the wilds.
  11. painted up 77040 Satheras, male warlock as a Drow and used it as an experiment to test out Coal Back and Styx purple. really happy with the results though the purple ended up more like dragon red at the end. Also was the first time with the Dark elf skin triad, really liked it. also on the scroll I looked up an eldritch font and wrote out Cthulhu fhtagn
  12. another WIP the previous Dwarf ranger has been put on the back burner for now due to InMiPaMo rules about trying to finish minis in 1 day for full points so i'll work on her and other unfinished stuff on days when i don't have time to try a full paint, or after Nov is over. but for now working on SKU: 77040 Satheras the Warlock and finally cracking open the dark elf triad to make a drow warlock. used Styx purple on the outer mantel top and violet shadow in the under coat and cape, though really cant tell the difference between the two. Robe are in what is becoming my fav black Coal black wolf grey for the shirt. Might be strange to have his boots done in light brown, one of the purples would have worked for color tie ins but with all the dark colors on him wanted some light ones to counter that
  13. Those are really nice but you are missing the most important one. Where is Sir Forscale!
  14. Also it looks like some are getting re-imagining look at the old Guardian Skeleton 2h sword sku 77238 and the new Bog Skeleton with 2h from Bones 4 (metal sku 03945) Other then a slight change in the pose and the thickening of the sword to prevent bends the sculpt is almost exactly the same detail wise right down to Bob Ridolfi's makers mark, though the metal version of the Bog skeleton says it was by Julie Guthrie, so maybe Bob just did the Bones conversion work. Also the same can be said for the old bones Stone golem and the new larger one in Bones 5
  15. Thanks, it actually was the hardest part as I based coated it in graveyard bone and trying to shade it without going to a standard brown was the main problem as I wanted to try and keel a linen look to it. ended up going with desert sand for the shade and bleached linen for the highlights. It ended up very subtle but overall i think it worked.
  16. I don't think that troll was would be stopped by acid because I think he took some acid and you could probably hear him a mile away as Iron Butterfly plays wherever he goes. Very cool paint job!
  17. only have 1, last 2 times i ordered when they were giving them out they didn't put them in
  18. Very well done looks like you already have some of the core skills down. the only thing i would say to try on this guy or the next one is to deepen the shades with washes. for this little guy you could do a black wash over the spear tip and sword, a brown wash on the spear shaft and even the gold/yellow bits and a dark green wash on the skin. you will be surprised how much simple washes make details pop out.
  19. Finished up the Farmer NPC from Bones 4 today, and I have to say he is the most peasanty looking peasant that ever peasanted, I bet he didn't even vote for the king. really happy how he turned out and was a fun paint
  20. been a while but got busy and then got into 3d printing so painting too a back seat but back at it now another WIP was my mini for Day 7 of mini painting month but was not able to finish it in time will see if i can finish it for another day though.
  21. Thanks. that's what I was going for. Sometimes just cant go wrong with a classic look
  22. Only used 8 colors for the troll. Base coated him in Reaper's troll flesh and harvest brown for the loincloth. Then a wash with citadel Nuln oil wash and Vallejo sepia wash for the cloth. Next a highlight of orc flesh over almost all of the muscles leaving just enough of the base and wash showing for the deep valleys of the muscles. Finally a glaze of troll flesh over the whole thing to blend it all together. Final touches were desert sand for the claws/teeth, coal black for the hair which was highlighted with Dark elf highlights and ogre flesh for the eyes. I think some of the new troll from Bones 4 have probably surpassed this old cave troll but one reason I like him is that he is the same size and almost the same look as the old DnD chainmail battered troll skeleton mini.
  23. This weeks WIP. for kind of haphazardly picking out the colors i think it looks rather good. 2 things i learned on this: 1. Sepia wash on gold and brass looks pretty cool. Reapers Steel wash goes great with silver.
