  1. Awesome color choices! How big is the mini? He makes me think of Kowlok in Ori and the Blind Forest.
  2. Thanks everyone for your likes and kind words. Concerning the base, I like to give some color to the trim. That dirty yellow is Zandri dust, I used it on most of my bases when I started painting, now I tend to make it match the environment or the group it belongs to (white for my mountain dwarves, dull orange for my PCs for example).
  3. Hi everyone, It's been quite a long time since I last painted a mini, and I got to give it a go last week-end. I've been using this guy for years as a DnD monster with just some Zandri Dust sprayed primer on it. I finally decided he deserved the paint he's been missing for all this time. I used a mix of Reaper and Citadel paints for that (Breast cancer pink, Brilliant red, Brush-On Black Primer that I can think of). Armor is Citadel TMM drybrushed over some Reaper Brush-On Black Primer. As a tribute to his numerous battles as a full Zandri Dust skeleton over the years, I left his cape wih Zandri dust primer and only gave it some weathering and highlights. I hope you like him. 🙂
  4. Thanks everyone for your nice comments and likes, I’m glad you like her! 🙂
  5. Hi everyone! Here’s my take on Ziba. I got it as a freebie back when Bones Black came out. It came with one broken horr, and the second one broke when I dropped it on the ground. That gave me a good excuse to train on using greenstuff. As I didn’t expect to be able to make two identical horns, I chose to make them clearly asymmetrical. Here she is, I hope you like her. 🙂
  6. Hi everyone, as Promised here’s a picture of the snow effect 2 years later : As you can see, there is no problem at all with the yeti’s base, but the snow on the first and second dwarves from the left started recently to turn quite yellow. I noticed it last month. I made the dwarves 1 month after the yeti. It’s pretty surprising to have some of them turning yellow but not all of them, as they were all kept at the same place on the same shelf (in a room that only has a tiny little window, so not much light except when I play games once every 3 weeks). The baking soda/paint/glue mix was the same on the four dwarves, and it didn’t even age similarly. Anyway, even if the snow looks great at first I won’t use that technique anymore, as that snow doesn’t really look like snow anymore, I just need to scrap it all and find a better way to make it.
  7. You got it ! 😄 I do intend to do that, that’s going to be fun! Grand Slam, the skin is Citadel’s Kislev Flesh that I highlighted by adding some Snowdrift White to the mix, so it slightly goes towards blue. Thanks everyone for the likes and nice comments!
  8. And he’s done! I’m pretty happy with how it came out. I put all the pictures in the Show Off topic: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/98746-wizard-confusius-by-midlam-miniatures-normal-and-converted-into-a-barbarian/
  9. Hi everyone! Here’s my take on Wizard Confusius from Midlam Miniatures. He’s going to be my character in a Pathfinder game I’m about to start with friends. The character’s dream is to become an archmage but he has absolutely no affinity with magic, he studied a lot but he's just a barbarian that regularly unleashes the power of the gorilla that’s haunting him. He’ll always do his best to pretend he’s a mage, so I made 2 minis: one when he’s still pretending, and one when he enrages. You can find the WIP of the conversion there : https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/98615-turning-wizard-confusius-midlam-miniatures-into-a-barbarian/ Without further ado, here he is, I hope you like it. 🙂
  10. I haven’t had much time to spend on painting these last few days, but the game is on next Friday, Arzane needs to be done by Thursday night! I started the highlights tonight. Happy Easter everyone, and be careful wit the chocolate. 😉
  11. He’s got primer on now. Lots of flaws appeared, particularly on the metal/greenstuff transition around the shoulders. I tried to smoothen that part but it didn’t work that well. It mostly shows on the front part of the right shoulder. I’ll have to try and improve that part next time…
  12. Oh well, in the end I didn’t wash it. Let’s hope it doesn’t peel off. I gave the fur a try and it went way better than I expected. He really starts to look like someone you wouldn’t want to get a punch from. Next time, I’ll make the torn part of the robes around the shoulders and that should be it.
