  1. Hi folks! Now that Flamehawke's received my Secret Sophie box, I wanted to share the miniature I painted for her. She enjoys mythology so I painted this mini based on the markings of silver foxes (which have darker leg fur patterns). It was really fun to find & paint something that matched with the "kitsune" theme of the Secret Sophie gift. This werefox archer is one of Reaper's "Lady Lycanthropes"in the 03495 pack. I had a bit of a snafu with the top part of the bow breaking off while cleaning which halted the process for over a week, though thanks to some advice from the Reaper Sculpting part of the forum, I was able to sculpt & patch it back up-- hard to tell, huh? She was a lot of fun to paint and I'm so happy to hear she's going to a good home where she may see some game time!! --Mocha

    This is my first mini ever. Some feedback would be wonderful. Thanks :)

    77205: Alistrilee by Silvervane

    Here is a figure I started right after RCon '15. In my hotel room to kill time. I started the NMM one way, then I decided to try out the Scale75 Gold NMM paints. I think it came OK even after all the gloss and dullcote. Thanks for looking. C&C (and even Critiques) are welcome. PS: I'm beginning to think next year I need to add painting wood details better to my list of goals

    Some mousies!

    When I went to paint day the other day, I didn't want to take any of the minis I need to do for my campaign because I paint with my gaming friends and don't want them to know what to expect. So, I decided to paint some mouselings. They are so cute! These are the first two I have done of the Bones II mouselings. I picked the female archer and the little thief. I borrowed from Pingo when doing the little thief and had his dagger be a rose thorn. Is it appropriate that I "stole" her idea while doing the thief? Ha! Hope you don't mind, Pingo. It was such a clever idea and I thought it was adorable!

    77205: Alistrilee [Bones 2]

    Ok, here is a figure I started at RCon. I wanted to get a palette cleansing figure done before I got back to my other WIPs. I didn't realize she was a Bone 2 figure till I got back. So I guess Alistrilee will be my first Bones 2 I paint up. Odd how I'm thinking of doing a figure with all that gold NMM as palette cleansing. Here is where I'm starting from:

    Llwellyn Softstrider, Red Box Games

    My version of Llwellyn Softstrider from Red Box Games. A great sculpt as all other minis in the RBG range. I rushed some parts (the varnishing among them) as I wanted to get it ready for the next weekend but still he turned out nicely.

    Mousling Ranger, 77289

    This is one of six Mouslings I've painted out of the ten new ones from the Bones II Kickstarter. I'm a little ambivalent about the "girly" Mouslings with the bosoms and the hair and the feminine accoutrements. I prefer to think of the Mouslings overall as general-purpose, could be boys or girls. Anyhow, this one, like the rest of them, has fun and not too fiddly details. WIP thread here. Other painted Mouslings: 92743, Archer (Robin Hood), 92744, Druid, 92746, Thief, 92747, Beekeeper, 92749, Assassin
  8. This is one of the new Bones Mouslings from Reaper's second Kickstarter. I painted up six (out of ten) of them for a campaign. Two of them are archers. This one is sculpted up like a tiny Robin Hood. WIP thread here. Other painted Mouslings: 92744, Druid, 92745, Archer (squire), 92746, Thief, 92747, Beekeeper, 92749, Assassin

    77237: Skeleton Guardian Archer

    Here's a little fellow I painted as a warm-up: Well, what was supposed to be a warm-up ended up taking three days. First, the sand for the basing material ended up getting messed up during application, meaning I had rinse it twice and start again. The I noticed the paint was getting rubbed off the high areas (it's not quite waterproof), so I had to repaint certain areas. Finally the matte varnish I put on frosted a bit, so even after reapplying gloss and matte varnish again, it looks dusty. At that point I called it quits and skipped the grass flocking. Still I like him, and he's good enough for tabletop. My son now wants me to let him play as a skeleton in an RPG session, with this as the figure.
  10. Yet Another Archer; A Kobold; A Tank; and some Fighter Plane Tokens The archer is another one to go with some of the previous bowmen. I hope to get a small painted unit of them by the time this is over. He is an old GW plastic. This guy just sorta got slopped with what ever color was left over after painting some of the other things. He was the use up the paint miniature. I think his legs are haldardier tabard red from last month's batch of halberd guys. Boots are kobold basecoat brown. The Kobold is a bonesium version, white plastic, 77010. I mixed faded purple with some lighter color —fire orange maybe— to get the brown for his basecoat. It did not cover the archer's shoes very well. Later he got drowned in brown liner. The tip of his spear is the same copper that was used to damp brush highlights onto the tank. The tank and the fighter tokens are 1:1200 scale resin models from Spartan Games. The basecoat on the tank is kolbold basecoat brown with a lot of brown liner mixed in because it wanted to dry out too soon. Later some pure brown liner got shoved into the deep places and kinda blended in. Then bronzey highlights. The airplane tokens are responsible for the archer's dingy blue tunic. First paint on them was Black Ink on the edges. Then they got a top coat of Sky Blue, avoiding the tops of the planes (archer got the left overs). Then the then planes got dabbed with metallic either silver or bronze. Then the edges got some silver to pick out the girder work. The final step was to wash them with Blue Liner. I was trying to get some edging and shadows under the planes. I needed to experiment on some of these. I have boat loads of these for the game they are from. [edits: Bold Tags; Only one L in kobold, added some paint colors, airplane token steps... ]

    Alistrilee, Elf Archer (77205)

    I just completed the Alistrilee, female elf archer, figure from the Bones II Core Set. I had actually put this figure in my Bones "out" box when I first sorted my Kickstarter. But since I have been bitten by the Frostgrave bug recently, and needed to boost my warband recruits, I pawed through the "out" box to look for suitable candidates who look attired for winter adventuring. I had culled this figure originally as it is rather plain and lacks a dynamic pose, and I already had a selection of elf archers from Bones I, but her hood and cape made her perfect for exploring the ruins of Felstad. And for those of you who like a close-up to see the details: I'm really pleased with how this figure turned out, and in the end I'm glad she was rescued, as I think this figure has a lot of subtle grace to it, that I missed on first passing. For the complete painting write-up, please see my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/09/alistrilee-elf-archer-bones-ii-figure.html
  12. So I'm painting up some of the Bones II Mouslings to be used as ship's crew and NPCs in a fairly weird game. These aren't all of them. There's also a mouse king and queen (with pointy hat with veil), a samurai, and a classic wizard, all nice but not quite for my purposes. To be honest, I have mixed feelings about the buxom little "girl" mice. I prefer to think of all Mouslings as something you'd have to be a mouse to tell the difference, like in real life. But gosh, they are cute. At the moment I am referencing real mice for coloring. One Mousling is going to be black, one white, and four a kind of mousy brown. There will probably be some variation on this. Here the six I'm doing are, cleaned up and washed with Reaper's Brown Liner, and a bit of paint added to the white mouse. Here the basic colors of the fur are blocked in and I've painted their tails and ears pink. Black mice seem to have a slightly darker pink, but on the whole all mice seem to have delicate pink tails and ears. Real mice have tiny, pink, handlike feet, while the Mouslings have more teddybear-like paws. I am compromising by painting their fingers and toes pink.

    Edele of Aelfheim: RBG

    Work In Progress for RBG: Edele of Aelfheim By Tre Manor This miniature was a commission for my D&D group. I added the flowers as an afterthought but am thoroughly pleased how they came out. I'm getting better with static grass but not where I want to be. Going to do more research. I just had to call it with this piece or I would have never got it done. It turned out well but not as well as I would have liked. I was continuing a new technique I did with a previous miniature. This is the third John (Tre) Manor Sculpt I have painted. I'm fond of his style. Thanks everyone! C&C Welcome! Don't forget to check out my blog - Iron Bristle Studios - for my complete list. The link is in my signature.

    RBG: Edele of Aelfheim

    Edele of Aelfheim by Tre Manor -Elf After a swift polish of this figure I Greenstuffed it on the base. I'm very pleased with the way it came out. I got to work on this one so quick I didnt get many WIP shots in but I am not finish with her yet. I also got some hair highlights! What do you think? And here is one i with a little more shading!

    Ral Partha All American Elf Archer

    So just finished this one this evening, getting the grass glued on to the base. I think this one looks better in person than it does in the photo just because of how the photo actually came out, but I've been whining a lot about my photography lately, so it's probably just me. Anyway, tried to keep kind of a cool but basic color palette, ended up imitating the Estonian flag quite a lot. This one is from the same series as the other elf I just finished, sculpted by Tom Meier, in the eighties at some point, need to look at the base to check. Anyhow, enjoy!
  16. With my collection being rather "large" these days, I've been trying to knock out tabletop quality work, and have shown a few here lately. Was time to slow down and enjoy the process more. I wouldn't say these are contest level, but hopefully better than tabletop! Anyone else find themselves speed painting far too often? (Shaman needs some basing still.) Mini numbers for those that might want to paint one of these themselves 02711 elf 14479 dryad 2805 shaman

    Mice and Mystics Lily and Nez

    I got Lily and Nez done for my Mice and Mystics game. Kinda fast painted them but I like how they turned out.
  18. An Orky (GWorkshop Orc with two weapons) A Muddy Hedge Wizard Reaper 02905: Arthur Wanderhat A Ghost Knigget (GWorkshop Knight of the Realm) A Saffron Skink (GWorkshop Lizardman model) Yet another archer (GWorkshop Bretonnian) A GWorkshop Cold One Raptor Dinosaur Strangely these look better in the photo than in real-life. I am reasonably pleased with the big lizard. Some of the others the camera is being kind. I will try to get more pics Saturday. Link to June Page: Resolutionary Challenge

    More Ultrasquid's Undead Troops

    Hi all! I'm new to this forum, but not to fantasy miniature painting. I don't really know what to say right now so I'll let a couple pieces of my wok speak for themselves: 77002: Orc Archers (Bones) 02566: Fiona, Female Druid
  20. Why not? I've never sculpted before, but I enjoy painting minis. I've done a few very minor mods before. I wanted more. So I decided to try making my own custom mini. I read the article in Kinetic7 vol 1, swung by a suprising number of craft/ art stores, decided on a build, and went to it with as little foreplanning as possible (before I lost my nerve). I decided to try to make a female Hobgoblin hero archer. Why? Well, our Fighter cleric just picked up a hobgoblin cohort in our DragonLance game and there don't appear to be any female hobgobling archer minis already lying about on the interwebs. Also, hobgoblins are kind of ugly, so there is room for lots of error. They are more heavy set, so I can get away with less fine detail if I want. And finally, it's not someone's main PC, so I feel way less pressure. To make things easier on myself I decided to base my creation off a mini I already have lying around: 03166: Alistrilee, Elf Archer by Bobby Jackson Spent more hours than I should have last night getting the basic shape down and making her face. Results below. First thoughts? Fun! Also, Sculpey Firm is still really soft and I didn't even use clay softener. I kept having to put it in the freezer for a couple minutes to firm it up. Next time I may just go with the harder greenstuff-like-stuff for everything and not just the underbase (but I am also not sure I can work that fast).

    Mirliton Skeleton Archers

    And the archers. These are from Mirliton ( I think). They are slightly larger than the original Grenadier ones
  22. These are my February Resolution Challenge figures. I solemnly swear I will find better info on them and get the thread tagged and titled properly on later edits (E2A: nearly there). Last minute, last day, 'what is sitting around on the paint bench that I could finish up?' figures, all of them. So, anyway... ...A mummy, a golem, an archer and a dwarf walk into a bar. 77144: Mummy: He is from Bones II. Slathered in Grey Liner. Wet brushed with a mixture of clay brown leather "Custom Color" and "Ginger Cookie" (which does not look ginger at all) then washed with some much thinned "Brown Liner". 2777: Earth Elemental: This guy (turns out he was not a golem) has been sitting around with only a coat of some brownish spray primer for the longest time. I painted Custom Color mystery brown, Ginger Cookie, and Brown Liner on him until he looked sorta finished. He will need something done to the rest of his base at some point, not sure what. Plastic Archer: This is Miles. A never quite finished GW archer (until the 28th of Feb). 3099: Klaus Copperthumb Dwarf Thief: Klaus is a Reaper figure but he did not turn up using either thief+cloak+dagger OR dwarf+cloak+dagger in the store search. Bit of a disappointment that. I should have tried dwarf+thief+cloak, that would have worked. He was mostly done but needed some touch up where paint had worn away from handling and some extra shading. I don't think I have his cousins Quimby or Lydia.
  23. Goblins make great cupids, right? All you have to go is shoot people with the pointy end.
  24. First Show-Off Post These are some of the last minis I painted before the presbyopia started to kick in. At one time I could see what I was doing! But since then I have dis-improved. My experiments with OTC reading glasses continue—I must have almost a dozen pairs at this point. If I remember rightly I painted the Gnoll and the Paladin at a Reapercon several years back. Or at least that is when I started them. But the remembry is a funny thing—so that might not be totally right. At one point Sir William got to serve in a Warhammer Chaos Army as either a BSB or a unit Champion. It helped that his broccoli base + the plastic regulation square base + the steel washer let him tower head and shoulders above the other plastic Chaos warriors. The steel washer is under there to let him stick magnetically to the unit tray. I need to incorporate the Gnoll into my Reven Army for Warlord.

    A Great Game Hunter Rogue

    "As most settlements lack the means to produce food within their fortified walls, hunting is essential to humanities continued existence. Making Hunters some of the most revered and honored members of their community. The same cannot be said of the so-called Rogues. Their preference for working alone, in an age when many lack the courage to even set foot in the wilderness, causes them to be viewed with suspicion and mistrust, their continued survival the result of deals with dark entities rather than natural ability. So Rogues lead a solitary life, traveling from settlement to settlement, staying in one place just long enough to repair their equipment and restock essential supplies." Another Kingdom Death mini finished, his WIP can be found here. Really like how he turned out, it was one of those sculpts that's very easy on my 'colouring-in' painting style, though I really do need to work on my photo skills. Comments and criticisms are, as always, most welcome.
