  1. Glad I could help....wait..they have a kickstarter going on...I'll be back in a bit. P.S. Now it's your fault for making my wallet cry
  2. I am calling this one done. I have repainted enough parts of this one that I am leaving well enough alone. This is my first time painting one of the Impact Miniatures chibi models and I am happy with how it turned out. Thanks to everyone who gave suggestions for colors and improvements in the WIP thread.
  3. Thanks for the comments everyone. They were a fun set to paint. I will give mixing the powder with paint/glue a try when I paint the other two from the set. After seeing your barbarian I may try to throw some cork/rocks on there too. It looks much better than the plain base.
  4. Excuse me, I have to pick my jaw up off the floor. Those blues look amazing. Great job.
  5. Finished 5 for the month: 1 Ice Golem and 3 Ice Gamin - http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60784-wyrd-miniatures-ice-golem-and-ice-gamin/ Chibi Wizard - http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60829-impact-miniatures-chibi-wizard/
  6. I finished of the Ice Golem and Ice Gamin from the Malifaux Children of December Crew. I still have to tackle Rasputina and the Wendigo. I am pretty happy with the paint except for a few spots where the wash dried funny on the Golem. The snowy basing material I used didn't turn out the way I had hoped. It seems a little thin and grainy to me. It also gets EVERYWHERE. I tried to keep it off the rim of the bases for the pics but it was a losing battle. Maybe next time I will put some fine ballast on before applying the snow, or just use the ballast and paint it. Anyone have any suggestions on snow bases? C&C is appreciated, thanks. WIP Thread Ice Golem Some more views of the golem: Ice Gamin
  7. Looks awesome. Great job on the metals.
  8. Thanks everyone. The golem is the reason I bought the set. I saw the set on the shelf at the FLGS and thought the golem looked awesome and would fun to paint. I have been meaning to start playing Malifaux ever since I bought these. We moved across town shortly after I got them and they stayed packed in a box. I had forgotten about them until recently when I reorganized all the boxes of my miniatures.
  9. I had originally started painting a chibi wizard for the Resolutionary Painting challenge. He is turning out better than I expected so I want to spend extra time on him and do some extra shading and highlighting. Due to the month being super effeicient at taking up my free time I don't think I will be able to finish him and 3 others to keep up with the challenge so I am going to put him off for a while. Instead I am going to paint up the Ice Golem and Ice Gamins from the Children of December crew I bought a couple years ago. They should be easier (famous last words!) to finish by the end of the month. Here is what I have got so far. The colors I am using are: Basecoat - 29814 - Ice Blue Shade/Wash - Citadel Drakenhof Nightshade Highlights will be 09021 - Snow Shadow and 09063 - Ghost White The gamin already have the wash applied. The golem still needs the basecoat finished.
  10. Ewww. And I mean that in the best possible way. Seriously creepy looking. Great job.
  11. Thanks for the color suggestions everyone. I ended up mixing some blood red and imperial purple together. I think the color turned out pretty well. I also tried to line the eyes. Looks much better now. Still have to do some cleanup on parts but I am liking how it is turning out.
  12. Thanks for the suggestions. I'll throw a reddish purple into photoshop and see how it looks/see if I can match the color in paint. I may give lining the eye a try, not sure if I can be that precise but what is the worst that can happen? Repaint the eye? Already done it once already.
  13. Getting started a little late this month on my resolutionary challege figures due to illness and a vacation. So because of that I am going to try to do what I think will be be easier minis. First up is the Chibi Wizard from Impact miniatures. I was a little nervous about the paint sticking after hear some of the stories about the resin that Impact uses. I cleaned it with Dawn dish soap and thankfully I didn't run into any issues. I want to break out of my usual blue/grey/white color schemes that I tend to use for wizards so I am going with green robes. Still haven't decided on a good accent/cape color...maybe a yellow or white...meh. Colors used so far: Robe - 09015 - Jade Green Skin - 09091-09093 - Golden Skin triad Eyes - 09039 - Pure White, 61113 - Arthurian Blue, 09288 - LED Blue Any C&C is appreciated, especially accent color suggestions
  14. I got my Bones II kickstarter shipment last week. Really like the stiffer material the new figs are made of. I wanted to practice painting a lantern to prepare for some of my other models so Mr. Bones got picked. It helped I ordered an extra one so he was loose in the box/easy to get to. Also, being Mr. Bones I though a standard lantern didn't quite fit so I decided to go with a bluish flame look. I am happy with how that turned out. Maybe next time I will try some OSL. The highlighting/shading got tossed out the window on this one since the Nightmare Black kind of did that for me. He is looking a little shiny in the pictures due to my light. He is pretty matte in person. Any C&C is appreciated.
  15. Looks great, nice job highlighting the black. I can never get that to look right.
  16. Here is Seth from Arcadia Quest. I really like the characters from the game and Seth is one I usually pick. I tried to follow the artwork from the game as much as possible with this. I think it translated pretty well. If I did it over again, I would probably go a little darker with the skin tone. I am really happy with how the spell and hair turned out. Any C&C is appreciated.
  17. I was running behind on figures for this months Resolutionary Painting Challenge so I decided to paint an easy one. I tried a homemade sepia ink wash at first but that didn't really show up too well so I went over it again with MSP Brown wash. The left shoulder came out a little weird. The base is one of the 25mm round bases from the Bones II kickstarter with some woodland scenics ballast on it. Any C&C is appreciated.
  18. Nice job. I wish my second mini had looked as good. Looking at the detail work on the shield I think you might be able to use the same brush to do the eyes. A little paint on just the tip of the brush should work fine. You can always practice on a piece of paper/cardboard first.
  19. Thanks for the feedback everyone. I really appreciate it. I was going for a more monochromatic brownish look, like he just "woke up" and is all dirty/dusty. Thanks for the suggestion. I will give that a try.
  20. Finally started on February Update - finally finished this months...just in time. 1. Sandy - Bonesylvanian - http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59379-01536-sandy/ 2.

  21. I finally got around to finishing up the last of my Bonesylvanians. My wife has been trying to get me to finish this one so we can display it for a week and then finally put all the halloween figures away. I kept putting this one off because of all the individual cloth strips. Any C&C is welcome.
  22. For me it depends on the models size. I prefer metal for 25mm/30mm based figures. Anything larger than that and I lean more towards plastic. Plastic is just easier for me to work with on the larger models. If they feel too light when I am done I can always add some weight in the base.
