  1. Give me a rainy day when I have had the chance to prime a Miniature, and I am OFF to the races. I was lucky that the Norwegian news had a whole lot of stuff I was interested in, or I would have gone nuts on this Miniature. The Froggy Queen is sculpted by my favorite sculptor, AND it is 28mm. Kathud. So I have the best of both worlds, Tom's sculpt and a larger size to play with. I am thinking of doing a Norsk Bunad style gown on the Queen. (I think I have gone insane).. but we shall see. Here is where I am at with the Froggy Queen. I am just going to play, and enjoy this piece of incredible.
  2. Alright, so here they are. The Dictator is unfinished because many moons ago, I was layering green on it in many transparent layers for a deep and lovely finish. Then one night my then-very-small daughter Evie got into my paints and resurfaced a lot of the mini. It got packed away shortly thereafter and I never got back to it. The Despot is painted to work with my 28mm humans-in-power-armour army, that being the UNE from Legions of Steel, using Defiance: Vital Ground to mediate conflicts between them and a mate's Space Marines (which he has heavily modified to take advantage of the huge range of options available in the DVG troop and weapon builders)
  3. I am awaiting the arrival of my florescent desk lamp sometime today. As I said when I posted Lucius to the show off...I'm off to paint something DIFFERENT. I think this is quite different..ROFL. This is the Frog Bishop from Dark Sword Miniatures. I am looking forward to painting it. Its bigger; but just as challenging as the 25 mm, and the details are fantastic. So, here is what his Grace looks like. He's primed.
  4. This has been one of the Great Fun Projects to paint. Since I took a break from Painting the Arthurian pieces by Tom Meier, I discovered that he had sculpted these larger 28mm pieces. The Frog Queen is a lot of challenge, and you can really push yourself as far as you (and your funny bone) can stand. I hope you appreciate my efforts on this Miniature. C/C is always welcome ! Here is my interpretation of the Queen of the Froggies !
  5. This has been an absolute blast to paint. I think the hardest part for me was to not giggle when I was going to do something that required me to be controlled. Excellent carving and details on this piece. If you want a pleasant challenge, this is a fun one. I slowed down and really enjoyed painting this, seems that I paint one figure a week, no matter how much I slow down. So here is my Froggy Bishop:
  6. I didn't intend to finish Percevale today; but it just turned out that way. I had one disaster occur where he fell off his mounting clip, and smashed to the floor beneath my desk, once that happened; I mounted him on the supplied base he came with. I used coffee grounds, sand, and some flock to make the base. So here is Sir Percevale. Made a modification to the base. A row of planting on the left made it better !
  7. I have been experimenting a lot on this mini. These 25mm (one inch) miniatures are a bit of a challenge; but they are carved so well you can stretch yourself a bit. I've been mixing my colors ON the horse while it is wet. Its a gamble, you can really make mud very quickly. I'm rather delighted, and happy with how this turned out. I've developed a lot of pleasure from doing these, and am grateful for all the assistance this forum has provided me as I learn the ropes, and develop my personal style. Here are two Sir Balyne photos.
  8. I am currently working on a motorcycle diorama (Outlaw Biker Photo Shoot)...and am running into the problem of not being able to find (modern era miniature figures) that could/would fit into the diorama...I would appreciate any/all feedback into possible figures that I could check out (must be available from U.S. outlet(s)...I don't do business with foreign outlets!...Figures in the 28mm range. The figures that I currently have for the diorama are: 1. Chronoscope 50272 Biker Thug (will use him as the photographer) 2. Chronoscope 50239 Motorcycle 3. Chronoscope 50163 Biker Girl (biker chick model) 4. Chronoscope 50156 Gretha (modified as a 2nd biker chick model) I am trying to find 2 or 3 male miniatures that could be used as bikers...and I would love to find 1 or 2 other motorcycles for the scene...and/or any other miniature figures that might work and lend themselves to a biker diorama. Thanks for any information. Paul (Catdancer)

  10. In this thread I'll post about an experimental, speculative project about 28mm Science Fiction soldiers. These troopers are a sort of air cav/paratroopers but in space. The first part of the project was to figure out a design. I was mostly concerned with it having a coherent look that was practical and aesthetically pleasing. As part of the design process I sculpted and painted this 1:35 scale prototype / design sketch. There are more details about the project on my Blog. Next I might do some sketching, start a couple of 28mm armatures, do another 1:35 sculpt or all of the above. Comments, suggestions, questions and critiques (especially) will be met with deadly gratitude.
  11. I am looking to find any figure company in the USA that sells the product line (Brother Vinni's Miniatures). If any member has such information, can you please provide it for me. I want to do a captive female figure project for my RPG game. The above name firm has (3 or 4) beautiful figures along the lines I am looking for, but I always prefer to buy in USA (if at all possible). Or if any member knows of any firm/company that makes a figure along the lines that I am looking for, I would like to hear about it. As far as I know (Reaper) does not offer a captive chained female figure...The old Ral Partha figures that I have are too small...the Hasslefree figures that I have are not what I am looking for. Thank you for your time.
  12. Warpunk is a concept I've had for a while. It's sort of like steam-punk but instead of Victorian dandies it's all about post industrial revolution military. So it's WWII, Korean, cold war + fantasy setting. Sketch and sculpt start. The scale is 1:52. Make note of the Cyberpunk decker fitted into a base with his new tab.
  13. So first of all thanks to metal chaos for the idea, you can see the original thread and discussion on acquiring ships here http://www.reapermin...aiden-and-crew/ So lets start with the basics, the smaller ship is a Mega bloks Black Pearl and the larger Is the mega bloks Flying Dutchman. The main issue with these ships is the hull are four separate sections as you can see I have attached each section using a combination of superglue and white glue when i ran out and loose 4x2 blocks btw these mega blocks are interchangeable with legos it seems if you need spare parts.. Also the goal of This is to have 2-4 ships with level decks with 5' grid markings for my skull and shackles game. My orignal worry was scale of the ships vs 28" minis but here you have a couple of examples (and as always forgive the crappy camera work) you can also see the major challenge that comes with these ships all those bloody nubs have to come off, Im going to grab a dremel kit to clean the upper deck. Btw My nearly complete ship came in, so here's a idea of what the finished products will end up looking like.
  14. If you read the blog you already seen this guy. I thought I'd start a thread to post about him here too. I'm not sure if I'm making too many threads or is the forum a little on the idle side? Mods? Should I make one megathread or is this better? Working with a reference image I've taken myself.
  15. I sculpted this guy quickly as an attempt to impress a particular company. They were not impressed but I think he came out pretty cool. :( The scale is 1:52.
  16. The scale is 1:52. 1.80 meters convert to ~32mm. Might be called "28mm".
