  1. I'm playing a Warforged Wizard in an upcoming D&D game and wanted an owl familiar. I was surprised to find that I did not have an owl mini already. In order to create miniature terrain I recently purchased a cheap 3d printer (Ender 3) and wondered if it could print a passable owl. I went to thingiverse and found a flying owl model. I scaled it down and gave it a go. To my surprise it did a pretty good job and took paint well. It was actually too small so I printed another slightly larger. This new one I painted metallic so it would be like
  2. Got these two cool minis from Humansquish. Thanks, they look great.
  3. I bought some Gripper Shelf Liner for $1. It has odd shaped holes which I placed on the black wings and airbrushed yellow through. I then airbrushed green over the whole area to smooth it out.
  4. This is one of my favorite Bones minis. This is the second one that I have painted and likely not the last.
  5. As I continue to learn airbrushing, I've been experimenting with some larger minis. This Bones Griffin was one of the minis I sent in the Summer Mini Exchange. Everything except for the eyes, beak, and claws used the airbrush. Even the wash was sprayed on using the airbrush which took a couple of tries to get he mix right. I've had this metal Huge Spider sitting around for many years so I finally decided to give it a go. In hindsight, I wish I would have painted the parts first then put it together. I only used a traditional brush on the eyes.
  6. Painted, packaged, and in the mail. I hope it arrives whole.
  7. I years of thinking about it, I bought an airbrush system last week. I've never airbrushed before and everything I've seen says to take it slow and plastic before using it on a model, but I'm too impatient for that. I started with the Bones Rats. Then moved to the Bones Deep Ones Then experimented with shading using the Bones Spawn of Shugniggurath. Then went big with the Bones Mashaaf. Its actually harder to learn than I expected. Luckily I have lots of Bones to practice on.
  8. I'm knocking out the quick-and-easy paints from Bones 3. Here is the Gravewailer which will be used as another gibbering mouther. The Froghemoth is a lot of plastic. I painted this with a brush and the cheap Apple Barrel paints, but with more, bigger minis from Bones 1, 2, and 3 yet to paint, I decided to buy an airbrush. Surely that will be better than brush for something like this in the future.
  9. I received by Bones 3 Kickstarter in the mail Saturday, so I hurried up and finished Wyrmgear from the first Kickstarter and started painting the easy stuff from the Mythos expansion. Here is the Sacrificial Alter, C'thulhu Shrine, Great Obelisk, and two Mi-Gos. Here is the lot with their master. Also, Wormgear. I have not decided if I should drench it in a dirty wash or not.
  10. I've been working on the Bones Storm Giant for weeks and I finally finished. To celebrate, I paint some random stuff. STORM GIANT Painted in the style of the 5e storm giant. As part of the original Bombshell Babes Kickstarter, this Eye Slug was part of the Sidekicks line. For an upcoming D&D game, I painted this Bones Frog Demon as a Red Slaad. A player needed a Lawyer/Bard PC mini so I used this Varian Jeggare 2010 Gencon exclusive mini. And, just for the fun of it, here is one of the Rea
  11. I think it was Reaper Pale Lichen with a highlight of Bloodless Skin.
  12. Evilhalfling beat me to the punch, but I wanted to go ahead and post me semi-review of the new Wiz-Kids unpainted miniature line. Seduced my their computer rendered images of the miniature I bought a couple of packs. Below are the Female Monks from the D&D Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures line. I did not spend a lot of time on them, basically just testing out how easy they were to clean and paint. They come primered, which is nice, but with the mold lines to remove a lot of that primer gets scraped away. Luckily, the white plastic alone is just fine to paint over. In
  13. That's also by Brother Vinni. They call it a "Mountain Horror" and it comes with a couple different heads.
  14. Here are some miniatures I painted for a Fallout RPG campaign. The miniatures are from Reaper, Armorcast, Wargames Factory, and Brother Vinni.
  15. I got my exchange from Terminalmancer today. It was two very nice ghost/specters that are great for my undead themed RPG. I never thought of using the Reaper bases upside down like that. I'm going to start doing that. I also got a bunch of really nice Reaper minis which I can't wait to paint, including some Lemurs which I've had my eye on. I'm going to start on those now. Thanks, Alex.
  16. My exchange partner said he could use some RPG Villains so I painted up a group of Bugbears. I'm hoping they can cause a little malice on his table.
  17. All finished and boxed up. It will be in the mail tomorrow morning.
  18. One mini is complete... just three more to go. At least there is a good window of time.
  19. The green blobs to the left are (supposed to be) potato plants. I was looking for some doll-house plants that looked like potato plants but I could not find any. I ended up sticking some Poison Ivy basing by Army Painter in the dirt. It looks a little better in person... just a little.
  20. If all goes well (the USPS is not lying to me) this should have arrived, hopefully in as few pieces as possible. My miniature exchange partner, tophdna, expressed an interest in space exploration which I share. I had recently read Andy Weir's The Martian and decided to convert Reaper's Duke Jones into the protagonist from the book. In the book, astronaut Mark Watney is stranded on Mars and must learn to grow food in order to stay alive long enough to be rescued. I used a few HirstArts pieces to create the habitat where Watney is growing potatoes.
  21. Miniature is finished. Diorama is 90% finished. The only part left is the potato garden and it will be finished.
  22. It takes so long to do a diorama I swore I would not do one for this exchange and focus more on the painting. Then I got my partner’s request and thought, “That would make a cool dioramaâ€. I guess I better get started.
  23. For the Summer Mini Exchange my partner requested "Something fabulous", so this is what I came up with. It's the 1970s: tired of the crime and corruption these four women join together to take back the streets. The minis are: #50163 Peaches #50148 Astrid Berger #50194 Cleo Greene Apocalypse Survivors: The Women from Wargames Factory
  24. Good weekend. Had a battle with a bad batch of yellow (or a good batch of yellow and a bad batch of skills) but nothing that 100 coats could not fix. Minis and base are complete and goes in the mailing Monday morning.
  25. I took the afternoon off work to spend more time painting my exchange (I'm about 25% finished) and I found a package at my door. Someone was really on the ball which is making all of us slowpokes look bad It was a big box of goodies from Marineal. Here is Malena the sorceress and Lem the halfling bard. I had not seen the Malena miniature before and both of them are painted just beautifully. As a bonus surprise were these four great looking spiders. All six of these minis will make an appearance in my next D&D game. They are all painted just perfectly. As if that
