  1. Your Green Lantern inspired me to try my own hand at Pez dispenser repainting (also because I'm interested in painting busts but don't want to spend a lot of money on them yet). I used the BvS-affiliated Batfleck dispenser. Thank you again for the idea!
  2. Thanks for the responses. The base is simply a rock I found hiking. I have a box full of rocks destined to be miniature bases. I always liked this one because of the natural "step" it included, which worked in this case to give the bad guy a slight height advantage, increasing his threat. I glued the rock to a regular round base to give it a littler more stability.
  3. Suitable for the side of a van somewhere ... Kjell Bloodbear and Rhasia, Zombie Master take on the older version of Dragoth the Defiler. I swapped out Dragoth's original sword, which I thought was a little puny, with one from an OOP Reaper undead warrior. I also painted him a little like Arthas because I need to mix my genres further.
  4. This is an older figure I did when I was figuring out NMM (as seen on the blade). For some reason, my camera has forgotten how to take miniature pictures so I've been using Hellakin here to relearn the various controls. It's still not 100 percent, but passable. Meanwhile, I also more recently tried my hand at using a limited palette on this Pandora from Wyrd. It's inspired somewhat by the style of Spanish artist Nekro:
  5. This figure sat in the figure box and then the shelf of shame for a long time as I tried to come up with an original paint scheme. After a while I gave up and, armed with Wayne Reynolds' book, painted her "canon." As always, comments welcome.
  6. Thanks for the comments! My go-to colors for aged white are Reaper's khaki triad (09321-09323) with Linen White as a top highlight and brown lined mixed in as a bottom shadow, if necessary. You can control how "old" the color looks by how much of the darker end of the triad is visible.
  7. I was drawn to this figure by how it creeped me out. Something about the finger in front of his lips, so he's not threatening like a movie monster but thinking or warning. Anywho, all comments welcome.
  8. Any comments welcome. This one, I tried a little more storytelling, if only for a sense of place.
  9. Thanks for the compliments! As for the white, I generally base with Reaper's Cloudy Grey and then cover this with Misty Grey, leaving the Cloudy Grey visible only in the creases. I then add increasing amounts of white to Misty Grey until it's almost white. I apply white VERY sparingly on the very tops of creases. You have to be careful with white because if you aren't careful, too much can make the figure look either too flat or unnaturally bright. Think of it like this: when you look at something white, like a coffee cup or a shirt, you're generally looking at a very pale version of whatever the underlying color is, be it grey or beige or whatever. The glints of light on the white coffee cup are the only true white on there. Other than that, my advice is the same as everyone's: thin paint and always move your brush from dark to light. For those who wanted to see the angel's back:
  10. Continuing to work on my camera skills, here's some figures completed in the past year. The first two are Reapers: 03267 The Gladiator 50033 "Action" Jackson 50061 Professor Froschmeister (an experiment with OSL) This one is High Saint Elienai from Anima Tactics. And this final one was from the late 1980s Ral Partha. I think she was Queen of Evil or something. Of course, that meant drow. Thanks for the opportunity.
  11. These two sat on the painting table for a loooong time while I did commissions. The ettin's color scheme was inspired by the many Warmachine trollbloods I painted for others. I had no interest in getting those figures for myself but liked the color combination. The efreeti was based on Derek Schubert's Eccardian Drovenge but went sideways somewhere. Also, if anyone has any tips on photography feel free to share.
  12. A weapon swap and an arm bend later and Britta War Maiden becomes a certain Amazon. She had sat in my bits box for some time because I didn't really want to paint a generic spearwoman. But her headpiece reminded me of WW's tiara and she was off an running. The funny thing is I'm far more of a Marvel guy so now I have to correct the balance in my figure cabinet.
