  1. Decided to tackle a treant for an upcoming adventure where the party enters one of the most ancient forest in my homebrew world. Would love any and all feedback.
  2. This is the second Goremaw I've painted and while I like the first one OK, I think this one turned out way better. For reference, the last pic is of the first one I pianted.
  3. Thanks. To make him seem more magical I used blue, purple and gold metallics to give the robes and cloak a silky/shimmering effect. Unfortunately, it doesn't show up too well in the images.
  4. Got a few Bones USA miniatures. First up is Darius the Blue. I originally painted his robes and cloak blue but didn't care for it much so changed the cloak and inner part of the robes as well as the belt to purple.
  5. Nicely done! I really like what you did with the cloak.
  6. Taking a break from painting monsters, I'm now tackling the mountain of PC/NPCs I've been putting off for the last year. Up first: Two firbolg druids.
  7. I've got about 150 minis to get through but no other terrain pieces as of yet. Though I'm always on the lookout for anytyhing interesting as long as it fits in the fantasy genre.
  8. Thanks! I worked on it over the course of three days as I had time between work and other responsibilities, but start to finish it took me somewhere around seven or eight hours.
  9. I don't do a whole lot of terrain pieces but this one caught my eye so I decided to go for it. I can say in all honesty it was actually fun to paint and I think it turned out pretty good.
  10. I've had these little buggers sitting around for a while and kind of wish I had buried them in the bottom of my rapidly growing pile of unpainted minis. Not only were they a pain to paint, but the sculpts were flawed on several of them. Some were missing the fronts of their feet, others had chunks of leg or some other body part missing. That being said, I think they turned out okay and the grass hides the missing feet LOL.
  11. I actually painted it twice. Originally I went with Dragon Red from Army Painter and then started doing highlights but quickly realized it was going to be an orange slaad if i kept going so started over with Chaotic Red from army painter which is almost a reddish-brown. From there I went with abomination gore, dragon red, mars red which is reddish-orange. After that I transitioned from lighter oranges to yellowish green in select areas. The claws and back spikes are done with hardened carapice and a dark wash - everything from army painter. For the base I added superfine basing grit to hide the black base and then used various shades of grays, greens,yellows and oranges. I was going for a sort of mossy look to the stone. It looks okay, but needs some work.
  12. For the record, red is one of those colors I actually really hate painting. That being said, I think this miniature of a Red Slaad turned out pretty good. The artwork on the back of the packaging showed it with some really dark green spots and lines that I didn't like at all so instead I used some greenish-yellow around the face and back.
  13. What's worse than running into a troll in the swamp? How about one with four heads, five arms and faces coming out of its abdomen!
  14. Gray Renders are one of those creatures I love so when this mini became available I had to snag and paint it up.
  15. The lightbox I use brightened it up a bit but, yeah, it could always be grungier. It also doesn't look like it but I used gloss varnish on the mouth, teeth and the ends of the larger tentacles. There are some faint green and brown spots on the base but I might've made them to faint and the lightbox drowned them out. I might go back and make them more pronounced when I have the time.
  16. Fun fact: In my homebrew world dragonborn are the result of a male dragon taking humanoid form and conceiving a child with a female humanoid and wyverns are the result of male humanoids conceiving a child with a female dragon that has taken humanoid form. Now, you might be thinking that means there are ten types of each - 5 chromatic and 5 metallic, but there are actually 11. Brown scaled dragonborn and brown wyverns - the rarest of their kinds, are the result of one parent being chromatic and the other metallic.
  17. I was considering doing more in black, blue, red and white to fill out the chromatic types of dragons, but the more I think about it, the more i think sticking to brown is best.
  18. Had two of these sitting around so decided to paint one brown and the other green. I think they both turned out pretty good but I personally like the brown one the best. What do you guys and gals think?
  19. The wings are my favorite part of this miniature. I used Army Painter Weapon Bronze as a base, gave it a dark wash and then highlighted with Greedy Gold and Bright Gold. The body was done using the same golds and Dark Wash previously mentioned as well as Gun Metal, Shining Silver and Polished Silver.
  20. I bought this miniature back in April of 2020 about a month after I started painting thinking in all my inexperience that it would be an easy paint job, but when it arrived in the mail I took one look at it and was like NOPE! And into storage it went. Fast-forward a bit over a year and I was still dreading it but decided to tackle it anyways. Here's the finished product.
  21. This dracolich is part of the Pathfinder Deep Cuts line of unpainted miniatures and was actually pretty fun to paint. I went with blue on the wings because I needed a blue dracolich for my campaign.
  22. I was going for a heat/temper effect around the elbows, outer edges of the shoulders and the chest.
  23. I think you just pointed out why I'm not all that happy with the eyes. I made them look human when I should've gone with something more lizard-like. Now that I know the problem I can attempt to fix it. Thanks!
