  1. After painting a bunch of orcs I was pretty sick of green skin tones, so these Lizardmen Archers are blue. Also, why they got to be Lizard "men" Reaper? I'm not an expert in sexual dimorphism amongst lizards, but maybe one of these two lizardfolk is actually a female... All joking aside, I only painted 2 out of this 4 lizardfolk set, and was planning on painting the other two in about a year or so to track any improvements in my skill level.
  2. I'm a little late in posting these, but this year I made a concentrated effort to try to paint orcs and only orcs for October, both to participate in the loose ceremony of "Orctober" and because I really need to finally paint some Orcs for the table. I started out trying some contrast paint for the first time and I didn't really like how the skin tone came out on the first model so I started experimenting. I tried many combinations of basecoat colors, thinning the contrast paint, inks, highlighting and glazing, and different washes. Not all of these even look that different, but I enjoy the subtle variations going on in the theory that, like humans, not all orcs are going to look exactly the same. It was fun experimenting, and I'm looking forward to painting the rest of the Orc crew next year. Individual pics with the different skin tone recipes I tried below:
  3. Still trying to cover all my basics with this classic troll design. I'm trying to get better with my basing, this time incorporating sand and some broken up wood chips.
  4. What a motley crew! I love the Bruise brothers and their miniature sunglasses.
  5. They're all great, but the freehand on #2 is blowing my mind.
  6. Thanks everyone! I love the idea of someone having a blind basilisk as a pet... I mean, they must be easy to care for since they just eat rocks, right? (or does it have to be formerly sentient rocks?)
  7. I ended up going in a little bit of tropical direction with this guy, using some really bright, lush greens. For his eyes, I wanted to elude to his petrifying gaze by giving them milky, cataract like coloration.
  8. This was my first time painting two of the same sculpt twice in a row, so I tried to make them pretty distinguishable for table play. I also hadn't realized how much bigger 77464 is then 77009, but I still think they work together and I'm pretty happy with the pack overall.
  9. This guy was fun to paint and learned a lot... of course, I made it twice as hard for myself by trying to do it with uv reactive paints (mixed with Reaper paints of course) Did you know most spray finishes are uv resistant? I didn't until I sprayed the tongue and had to paint that part all over again. Luckily that was the first part I finished!
  10. Thanks all! I was super happy to pull off the blend on the back scales. It really is an amazing sculpt. I had to open it right away to get a better look, and then I realized I'd have to paint it as quickly as possible or I'd inevitably lose one of the feet!
  11. This guy took me an ungodly amount of time to finish, partially because it's the biggest and most complex miniature I've attempted so far, and also because I'm a new dad and have to find spare hours on the weekend to paint.
  12. Pledge manager is up and linked to your kickstarter funds. Paypal functionality for processing additional purchases without using a card is still being worked on.
  13. I'd love to see some new hobgoblin sculpts with enough variety to field an army from infantry, archers and cavalry to captains and warlords. Preferably more in the this style than the eastern/mongol horde look that seems to have become the default for their representation. I think it would also be great to see more of the monstrous races represented as pc classes (bugbear druids, hobgoblin monks, orc rangers, kobold clerics, etc) and more female versions of goblins, orcs, bugbears and hobgoblins as well. And stirges... I know it probably gets brought up a bunch, but stirges.
