    3205 Friar Stone, Traveling Monk

    "Bliss" Needed a civilian type for a game, and this was the best I find in my lead mountain. Dunno why, but I keep seeing him as one of those beer-making monks carrying a keg on his back. So I painted him as one who just "sampled" the merchandise and really liked the sample. The nose and cheeks were more "ruddy" IRL but doesn't show up well in the pictures. There is a lightish line at the top of the belly where I tried to repair the paint job after accidently flicking some dark wash on it. The line isn't really visible IRL but clearly seen in the pictures. Thanks for looking. *Edit And if something looked odd with my montage, it's because the second picture got flipped when I was joining the four of them together. Just noticed this.

    Thanks! Well they do say that Trappist Monks brew the best beer in the world. Thanks. This was an experiment in using Folk Art "Tile and Glass medium" to thin paints, and I must say it worked quite well.
  3. Cheap Halloween flies from Daiso, the Japanese 100 yen shop. They're about 0.5" long. My group have played the first mission, now prepping up for the second one. Fun Game.

    3212. Iltheus, Young Mage.

    “OK, so the Fireball spell didn’t work that well. Any other ideas Owl?” “Hoo!? You asking me!? I’m just an owl.” Probably my last mini for the year. Wasn’t planning on painting the cloak brown since it sorta merges with the hair and owl, but a slight accident forced it on me. I like the way it turned out tough. Thanks for looking.

    3212. Iltheus, Young Mage.

    Yeah he looks like he's in trouble but I'm pretty sure he and the Owl survives and grows up to be Amathor (DHL 2319). Ooo you've given me some inspiration. Next young guy/gal I paint, I'm gonna try adding pimples or freckles. Well, it took me 3 tries to get the eyes right. I'm still not completely satisfied, but the paint was getting a wee bit thick.

    2021 Tara the Silent

    Dug up an old mini by Sandra Garrity, which, according to my database, I bought over 10 years ago. I don’t know which is sadder, that I actually made a database of my unpainted minis or that I still have 188 unpainted ones (and these are just the Reaper ones!). Wanted to give her a roguishly, confident face and I’m pleased with how it turned out. As for her clothes, after reading Rhonda Bender’s articles, I think I need more contrast. Base made from air-dry clay. Thanks for looking.

    I like your prose. Thanks to everyone for their comps.

    60026 The Scribbler

    This was an impulse buy for me 'cause I don't play Pathfinder, but the Reaper range has a lot of really cool mini's. From what I understand, the Scribbler is an incarnation or possessed by an ancient evil God, so I gave him some "psycho" eyes (ie Iris only touching the lower part of the eyeball). Tried to make a desert base, but put far too much grass on it. Thanks for looking.
  9. My normal "pallet" is just Yogurt caps. The first one surprised me a bit when it came off, but it looked cool, so I thought I'd see how long it would take to peel off by painting the date (in reverse) on the cap. So a little more than 4 years! Cracks started appearing about 8 months before it came off.

    Hasslefree Brooke

    Sure, the gang's already here. Painted circa 2013-14. L-R, River, Book, Simon, Mal, Jayne, Kaylee and Zoe. Wrong ethnicity for Zoe cos I painted her before I decided to put a Firefly themed Pulp Alley gang together. I think she fits nicely though. "Zoe" is Ellen Paige from Bombshell. Other's are the "Tranquility" crew from "Blackwater Gulch" Western skirmish game.

    Hasslefree Brooke

    Received my Hasslefree Kickstarter recently, and decided to paint one of them. Brooke was an add on to the pledge, but I painted her cause I wanted to add her to my not Firefly "Pulp Alley" gang because she reminds me of River Tam. First try at NMM for the Knife, and I'm pretty satisfied with the result. The sequined hoodie didn't turn out as I liked, maybe needs several more shades of green. Thanks for looking.

    Hasslefree Brooke

    Shiny indeed. The fun part was getting two of my mates to say “Why is the coat so Shiny?”. Yeah I got a not-Firefly crew from a Weird West skirmish game and I re-purposed them for Pulp Alley. Mal is the Leader, Jayne and Zoe are shooters, Kaylee is a mechanic/Inventor, Book brings divine retribution to the unbelievers (ie he has a burst/area effect weapon), and Simon is a harmless geek who can shiftshape into a badass melee fighter River/Brook(e)

    2905 Arthur Wanderhat, Wizard

    Been a lurker here for a while, this will be my first Figure. Painting Reaper figures again after a long break. Robes and hat painted using Reaper Red Hair Triad (9781) Skin painted using Reaper Golden Skin Triad (9731) topped off with a very dilute PPP skin wash. Thanks for looking.

    2905 Arthur Wanderhat, Wizard

    Thanks to everyone for their comps. Firstly, let me clear something up, when I said after a “long break”, I meant long break from painting 28mm / Reaper miniatures. I was painting a LOT of 15mm armies (WW2 / Napoleonics / Ancients) instead. The techniques for 15mm are a bit different from 28’s but my brushwork is far from rusty (although my eyesight is probably shot ) . Sorry for the confusion. Funny, when I first started painting the Mage, the first bird that came to mind was a pigeon. I am planning to do a set of Rainbow Mages. Already done up 2114 Galladon as the Blue Mage, will have to check my lead mountain for the remaining 5. Wasn't planned that way, but now that you mention it, I quite agree.
