  1. Interesting figure and nicely painted, but there's something about the face in that first picture that disturbs me. Given the dimensions it almost looks as if it's head is on backwards or something.
  2. Great job! The goliath's grey skin makes it look as if he's slowly turning to stone. I like it.
  3. When I hear earth elemental lord this is not what I imagine, but great job nevertheless.
  4. I am definitely my own worst critic. That being said, I can also see the eyes up close and magnified and while they look OK in the smaller images I've posted here they need some work. That being said, if anyone has any tip or tricks on dealing with shaky hands I'd love to hear them.
  5. I've ordered and painted quite a bit of WizKids minis since I started painting last year and I've found they're hit or miss on the fine details. As for the size, I prefer werewolves that tower over the party, but unfortunately in 5e they're medium sized creatures. That's the only reason I didn't order them along with the 200 or so other minis I've gotten from them.
  6. This is my attempt to do the Clubtail dinosaur justice. I've come to the conclusion that my shaky hands make it virtually impossible to get eyes even remotely decent.
  7. I had a spare iron golem miniature sitting around and I just got some new metallic paints from Army Painter so decided to test them out. I started with a base of Night shade which is a very nice dark blue and then did a heavy drybrush of gun metal. After that I highlighted with Glitter Green, Tainted Gold and Evil Chrome (their name, not mine) and because most images of iron golems depict them as reddish in color I went over most of it with Gemstone. Even though I didn't use any washes on the golem itself I'm pretty happy with the results.
  8. Beholders are one of those miniatures I've steered clear of because I don't think I have the skills to do it justice so I decided to tackle the zombie version instead.
  9. I've never bought from them before so I can't speak to the quality, but there are official Discworld miniatures. Just do a google search for Discworld Miniatures and you should find it. Don't know if you care about material, but they all seem to be made of metal and in 30mm. A quick search of their website and I found all the ones you named except for the Dean.
  10. I've used the pre-painted one in previous campaigns but this one will be coming into play for the first time tomorrow and I can't wait to see the look on my players' faces when they see it. I've actually got another one coming that I'm going to paint in more autumn tones. Originally, I painted this one green like in the artwork but didn't like it at all so varied the shades of green and added in some yellows. That was better but still not what I was looking for so I made some of the thicker vines brown and that really made the whole thing pop.
  11. Thought I posted this a few days ago but apparently I missed it. Anyways, here's a giant constrictor snake and yet another green mini. I think this makes 7 this month.
  12. Ummmm..... I did paint a snake this month and it's green LOL! I think I posted it a few days ago. NOPE....apparently I forgot to post it. That has now been fixed.
  13. Not sure if I'm being possessed by the spirit of St. Patrick, or I just really want spring to get here but I've been painting a lot of green this month and this shambling mound is no exception.
  14. I'd really hate to run into this thing in the woods, swamp or anywhere else for that matter.
  15. I was originally going to paint its claws black as depicted in most artwork but then I remembered I have a paint called Troll Claw so I used that instead.
  16. Updated the images so you can now see even more details.
  17. This was kind of fun and easy to paint until it came to the base which was factory attached. Painting between every leg was a tedious nightmare.
  18. This was a fun one to paint. To give the appearance of it sitting on the water I decided not to add anything to the clear base.
  19. Was going for a more leathery look to the wing membranes with this one. Didn't quite pull it off but I'm mostly happy with the outcome.
  20. Green dragons are by far my favorite of the chromatic dragons for their cunning and treacherous nature so I'm glad I finally got this one finished. In my homebrew game dragons are inherently magical creatures and green dragons use spells to enhance their trickery and misdirection. Got some new photography equipment. The pic above was taken with just my cell phone while those below were taken with the same cell phone with the miniature in a light box. What a difference!
  21. This is actually the second fomorian giant that I've painted and this one turned out way better than the first.
