  1. Hey all! I really just worked on the orc because I was in a groove after getting out of work. Pretty pleased with it, I don't think there's much more I want to do with him. I had a lot of fun painting with him. I wish I could base him right away, but he's going to have to wait for his barbarian foe to be finished before they can get a proper base to face each other. I hope you enjoyed watching me paint this orc, maybe I'll be able to get close to finishing the barbarian tonight too!
  2. Great job on a rough cast of a very nice miniature! What is it you don't like about the grass? We're you using static grass or the army painter/minitaur tufts?
  3. I just worked on the Orc tonight. I painted in the shades of his skin, and then gave him a wash of green ochre and burgundy mixed together then brought it back up with a first pass of highlights. I also painted the tunic, the necklace cord, and his fur. I got his eyes but couldn't get a good photo of them. They'e tiny even for RBG miniature standards. Tomorrow I might flip back to the barbarian, or actually work on my RPG that I'm supposed to be running on Sunday. Next step on the orc is more skin work.
  4. I think that those swords came out looking really great and I'm totally going to use that technique on an Orc I'm currently working on!
  5. Thanks for all the words of encouragement! I mostly worked on the barbarian, all the orc got was another base coat of the skin since the mix I made up didn't cover too well, but I think he's ready to rock now. I think the barbarian's skin is done, the photos are a little harsh. Next up are his pants, bedroll, scabbard, and wineskin. I am happy with the belt and fur and don't want to do much there. After his accessories I'll do his boots and highlight his pants, and then all that will remain is all the metals ( sword hilt, the axe [though the handle will probably be another shade of brown, maybe ashen?], wrist bracelet, pendant, studs on bracer) I'm pretty pleased with the eyes, I was trying to get a looking up and to the side with this guy, since he'll b looking up at Mr. Orc here (who hopefully I can portray is looking down) Thanks again for looking!
  6. I'm really liking the purple armor on that cleric. I'm not sure what your original plan was but I think that it looks really sharp and is quite suitable for a more evil aligned cleric
  7. I think that the grey works a lot better as a backdrop for the particular mini.
  8. Hi all, here's another WIP that I've started. These are two miniatures I received from two separate Red Box Games kickstarters. A barbarian and an orc. Here they are primed and ready for some paint. Front view Skin Base Coat and Fur Base Coat on the barbarian, and the still drying skin on the orc The orc brute is a slight conversion, I used one of the spare heads from the orc warlord on the head of the orc brute for a more menacing look. I can't wait to get this orc painted up because I can just envision him dragging that cruel and jagged blade on the ground as he approaches a foe (probably the barbarian!) Thanks for looking! I'm hoping you enjoy the ride as I work through this duo during the week.
  9. That looks great! It's pretty amazing to see how Tre's skills have developed and progressed from his early RBG sculpts to what he's putting out now. I think you really nailed a good paint job on this, well done!
  10. Got my order on Friday, it was so hard to not keep looking at them during work! I think that the first two I'm going to paint are Rollo and the Orc Hero from the last kickstarter
  11. Here's a quick photo I snapped before work of the two carts I made. You can see that the one cart is way too huge for a red box dwarf. The smaller cart isn't perfect but I think that it will do for my purposes. Especially since it will be towards the rear of the diorama. Sadly it looks like my scale shot is too big for the forums so I'll share that later tonight! Hoping to get it painted up tonight!
  12. Thank you! That's quite a nice compliment! I had to remake the cart last night. The previous cart I made was much too large. I'll post comparisons of the two carts I made. Now I just need to paint it. I think that I'll fill it with scraps to make it look like charcoal collected in the wood, and maybe sculpt some furs.
  13. Thanks! Originally I had envisioned a snow covered tundra with the dwarf having a sled behind him instead of a cart. But I think that the autumn scene works better with how I ended up painting the little guy. It's a Red Box Games miniature which I believe is a more true scale 28mm miniature and not the heroic scale. All the dwarves, elves, etc are very well proportioned with one another. Tre Manor is easily my favorite sculptor. He has such life and character in his sculpts. Thanks! It is quite tiny, but when I first started painting miniatures most dwarves were this size, only the difference is that fifteen years later I finally have the skill to paint them Hopefully I can get some pictures of my work in progress cart up tonight.
  14. Here are some shots of the diorama base with the dwarf attached. I added the quarter for scale because I really like to demonstrate how amazing Tre Manor is at capturing small detail. Once the diorama is completed I hope to do better than just some quick photos on my desk. Here is what I have left to do at this point: I would like to add one to two trees to complete the woods aspect. I have plans for a deciduous tree atop the mound of earth behind the dwarf, and possibly a coniferous tree somewhere. I also intend for him to have a hunting dog. The one I am eyeing as the winner is the dog companion from the stonehaven elves kickstarter, but we'll see. If not he may go dogless as I haven't really found anything to scale that suits him, although there was an old Partha/Iron Wind metal that caught my eye that might fit. Lastly, I built out of some arts and craft scrap wood and beads a little cart that I envision him leaving at the back of the base as he moves deeper into the dense wood where he can't bring his cart with which to haul his prey back in. Thanks for looking, hopefully I'll be able to show you all the completed diorama soon.
  15. Hi all, I'd like to share some of my work in progress shots of a diorama or vignette I'm calling, "The Old Dwarf and the Dark Wood." I've been taking sporadic photos of my progress along the way (thought not every step because I'm bad at documentation) First up, I'd like to share an in progress picture of the dwarf. You can see at this point the dwarf is pretty near completion. Next up: Photos of the completed dwarf on his holder, a binder clip courtesy of work. Although I think I need to go back in and shade the bindings of his bedroll D: To make this not so image heavy, the next post will be featuring what's going on with the diorama so far.
  16. That base for Kally looks amazing and I can't wait to see how you paint up a an ancient skeletal dragon that's been lying on the ocean floor undisturbed
  17. Awesome! Really looking forward to seeing how your first RBG miniature turns out.
  18. Good to hear that you found a solution that's going to work! Looking forward to your continued work on this project
  19. Wow, still don't regret bailing on this one - but those are some fantastic miniatures and I'm happy they'll all be hitting retail (minus the exclusives). I absolutely love the Tre Manor and Kev White ones, those are great! I think the ones I'm most looking forward to are Hedge Knight, Barristan the Bold, and the Kev White/Tre Manor duo
  20. What'd you use for those red ferns? They look amazing. Also fantastic work on that miniature!
  21. Sorry to hear about your difficulties with that model. I know I've definitely shelved a mini for a while after prep difficulties. Hopefully you'll find the strength to tackle it again some day, and if not...well I know one RBG collector who missed out on this one that is interested in it
  22. I was in on this for a while but backed out a couple of days ago because I realized that while it was good deal, there's a bunch of miniatures in this bundle that I just don't want. There's definitely a select few that I will be getting at retail.
  23. I mean if you're looking for suggestions I think it only makes sense to finally put your brush to a Red Box miniature (which you admit to owning!) since you do such a good job with natural looking miniatures.
  24. Well I think the time you spent on it was definitely worth it - it came out wonderfully
