Hello, This is my first post on the site. I figured I'd post my Alchemist that I am currently using in a campaign. I went with black hair rather than the actual iconic since I was attempting to make this figure match more of what I was playing. Anyway, here are the pics. I know there are much nicer examples out there, but I think this one looks pretty good for my low skill level. Thanks.
I finally got some decent brushes in and some nice Reaper paints, which means I no longer have any excuses to procrastinate. That also means it's time to practice everyone's favorite part of mini painting: eyes! And what better practice than an eye beast. Fun fact: the Reaper eye beast has 25 eyes! That's a lot of teeny little highlights to do. Pardon the blurry photos, my phone hates minis. As far as the mad-sciencing goes, well... I figured Damiel would be a good candidate for a bit of head-transplant surgery. His lab coat was perfect for my pathfinder alchemist, but his head just wasn't bird-y enough. I'm thinking of going for a nice clean, white paintjob on the coat and a dark, iridescent head.
Here are two more speed-painted tabletop figures for D&D. They are Reaper Bones line versions of 02811 Dain Deepaxe and 60044 Damiel Iconic Alchemist. They took me longer than my last speed-paint, because they are more detailed. (Darn Damiel and his fiddly bits!) But they still are speedy for me, about 5-6 hours each, instead of my usual 12-15. They each have a coat of gloss, covered by a coat of matte, for heavy handling, and so they have a few shiny spots here and there.
I'm working on 60044, Damiel, Iconic Alchemist. http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/damiel/sku-down/60044 shows the figure in Reaper's store. The figure came with that long skinny thing in his right hand badly bent. I've tried to be gentle with it, but it's really vulnerable and sticks out, and has gotten bent again several times as I've been painting. I don't think it's going to survive painting, let alone gaming. Does anyone have suggestions for how to shore it up? I had some idea of painting the figure fully, then simply epoxying the thing back onto his hand with clear epoxy. It looks far too thin to pin, and besides, I've not yet pinned anything and don't yet have the tools. Help, please, oh ye of far more experience?
