  1. Does anyone know of any minis playing an accordion? The only one I've found so far is the Mousling squeezebox player in the tavern set. Doesn't have to be human, this band is already multi-species… I'll use the mouse if there's no other option, I'd just prefer a full-size accordion. Thanks!
  2. I painted a couple figures for my campaign while I was finishing off my lion and cookpot. The bard is 02186: Alfred Redlute by Sandra Garrity. The party bard is human, and plays him as a tattooed rockstar. He even has tattoo artist as his downtime profession. Of course I have no freehand skills, so instead I gave him a red band/mask to give the general feel of a tattooed character. We had discussed painting his face like a member of Kiss, but again, no freehand ability. It isn't obvious from the pictures, but I did actually paint his eyes and pupils, and the right side at least turned out well. The bard was miscast, but fortunately the seam isn't too visible, other than along the blade and the left side of his face. The facepaint helps downplay that, so it doesn't look too bad. I wish now I had gone with a different colour for the trousers, the colour is too close to the gold trim on his tunic. Also, I should have dabbed some gem colours onto his necklace, it doesn't really stand out next to the flesh and leather strap. It's a really nice figure, I wish I could do it proper justice, but it looks good on the table. I also skimped on the base because I was rushed. The mini is glued to a Dungeon Crawler base, I got their vampire bundle with their last kickstarter and got a ton of them. They are great, he can connect a torch or driftglobe, so we don't lose track of who is carrying a light. Although, as currently the only human in the party, it's always him. Still, it is handy for me as the DM to adjudicate surprise. His hair is brown with some reddish highlights, even though it seems almost grey in the pictures. The gnoll is the bones figure, 77012: Gnoll Warrior by Tre Manor. Ironic note, I hadn't seen Adrift's version until looking up the mini for this post, so I didn't know how closely the clothing colour scheme is. His is more orange vs. my gold, but still, very similar. I tried to capture the spotted look of hyenas, they have very random seeming spots so I tried hard to not repeat myself. It was definitely hit and miss, some spotting looks great, others not so much. I decided not to paint his eyes, hyena eyes are basically black anyway. I also tinted his ears pink like the inside of a dog or cat's ears. I like how it turned out, but it's not very hyena-like. His base colour is 09061 linen white, if I had more time I could have darkened up a few areas since hyenas aren't monochromatic, but there's a small enough area of hide showing that it doesn't look too bad. For some reason the brush on sealer stripped the paint in a few spots. Along the front straps and the back of his skirt are the most obvious spots, though it came off in a few areas. Maybe I didn't let it dry long enough. Hopefully I'll get back to it and touch up those areas. I like the colour I wound up with for his base. Just for fun I painted it with 09670 Pumpkin Orange I got as a promo colour with an order last year. It is a fantastic pumpkin colour, but was too bright so I mixed it with pure black and washed it over top. It ended up with an almost volcanic look, something I want to play around with in the future.
  3. Malakai Sorrowsbane is my friend's tiefling bard in a short 5e campaign we're playing. Modifications were done by klarg1. With this, I've painted up a miniature for all the players and the DM. I will give them to the players to take home after the final session. DM Mini Kerri Windrivver The Dwarf The Paladin The Ranger Malakai Sorrowsbane
  4. Just finished my third or fourth bones figure, and I'm slowly getting used to the material now Her face looks far nicer in person. My camera picked up all the roughness in it >.>
  5. This is my 'bard' for May's resolutionary painting challenge. He's from Grenadiers' old 'Future Warriors' range by Mark Copplestone. Normally, I wouldn't consider him done 'cause he's not based, but I have a few other band members from the same range; I haven't decided yet if I want to use them all together in a vignette/diorama, so I left him unbased. Heck, he's not even glued to the base yet. Some notes: I tried some freehand on the front of his t-shirt. I used decals for the back and his tattoo. I did a few glazes to try and blend it in to the skin on his arm. Please tell me that you can make out what the shirt says without checking the spoiler.
  6. Back for the January Bones Beauty Contest I painted up a half dozen or so Bones halflings and gnomes (and enough more metal halflings to make a baker's dozen, but they will get shown later). This is Lem, Iconic Bard. I painted his facial expression after a particular mischievous and charming nephew of mine. I played a flute like his in school; the reflections on the flute are all painted on.
  7. The Gnome Bard by Stonehaven, not sure why she's singing to a bush, she just is. Something simple I've painted up between other things, but I'm rather pleased with how she came out. Comments and criticisms are, as always, most appreciated.
  8. She has an odd face. After I primed her (well, brownlined her) I couldn't shake the notion that she was singing, deep in concentration on a note. So I painted her with her eyes shut, singing. Her shield is a wee little thing. I painted a French horn on it as a device. She was painted for the January Bones Beauty Pageant and I kind of rushed her at the end. I thought I would go back and fix her hair, but perhaps I will just leave her as a nice tabletop figure.
  9. Elliwyn is my entry into the "Little People" Bones Beauty Pagent. I started her at the January meeting of NEMPA and finished her today. (I spent far too long on her for such a silly paint job.) I originally picked the colors to torment Qwyksilver, who was waxing poetic about color wheels at the time. I also originally tried to give her blue skin by mixing the hair color with a skin color, but it just looked too weird, so I painted over it - but not fully, as you can see - for an interesting effect. I mostly dug around in my paint collection for the brightest colors I had. The hair is Surf Aqua, tunic is Breast Cancer Awareness Pink, gloves and shoes are Jade Green (originally Alien Goo, but it was too bright). Shield is VGC Warlord Purple + Red Ink.
  10. So this is Pennies a gnome bard ( I still need to finish her character sheet before I can play her) my fourth mini painted in my first month of painting, I finished her on Wednesday night and she's also over in the little people beauty pageant. I think she's my favourite so far. Again her photo is a bit blurry (I used my iPhone to do them just to get them posted, generally I'm quite impatient). Any advice or points are welcome.
  11. Finally finished Gendrick. He took me about 8-9 hours total, mostly cause I just kept fiddling with the little bits, so I call him a "semi-speed paint" and call him good at a bit above tabletop standard. He was done for one of my 5E players who loves to rock out on the lute. I added a crossbow to his base and a small quiver of bolts to his back. Manuafacturer: Reaper (SKU# 03485 - Alfred Redlute) Material: Pewter Sculptor: Bob Ridolfi WIP Thread As always, C&C are greatly appreciated and welcomed! Thanks for looking. ​Gendrick the bard dropped his crossbow and started to strum a valiant tune on his red lute when his friends got into a tavern brawl, he inspired them to victory!
  12. Cecilia, the Hefty Halfling is a D&D bard/fighter character I am currently playing. She once got the party into a fight with killer mushrooms when she tried to collect them for a stew. And when the battle was over, she still made her stew. This is a Bones figure, with minimal prep. I didn't use any primer, but I did glue her to a gaming base, and extended the base she came with into more rock and dirt using green stuff. I missed a mold line or two, but otherwise, she's not too bad. The surface was not as smooth as polished and primed metal, but for a tabletop mini, that's ok. My friend bought the Vampire Level Bones Kickstarter set, and I'm on deck to paint all the minis for our PCs, so I'm not putting in a lot of time on each one. This one took me 4 hours, including prep. I was lazy about planning a palette, and stole it from a Reaper Paint Crew paint job of another figure. Bonus points if you can identify which one! (The Paint Crew job is much better than mine, especially since this is speed paint.)
  13. Getting started on this guy with a bit of a conversion/addition. This is Reaper Figure Alfred Redlute (SKU# 03485) which I'm painting up (speed paint table-top quality) for our bard named Gendrick. This guy looks a LOT like Steven Tyler from Aerosmith! Anyhow got the information tonight on what colors he wants used and he's all primed up and ready to go. Colors will be: Hair - Dark Brown Eyes - Dark Brown Skin - Slightly Tanned Tunic - Browns Shirt - Green Pants - Dark Green with light green stripes Boots - Black Leather Lute - Reds with Gold trim The crossbow will be attached to his back, so that has been primed up as well and pinned so that I can paint it up and then I'll attach after everything is painted. No plans for the basing yet, but it'll probably be something simple like an inn wood floor as he travels around and plays for his food/drink/lodging.
  14. So I'm in the middle of working on 5 figures for my Pathfinder Group members, we are know collectively as The Queen's Hand. Stonehaven Gnomes (Mad Scientist & Thief) - Mr. Keen is the Alchemist and Shaddix is the mutated form, a single player uses both figures for his PC. It's a gnome alchemist who uses mutagens to change forms, so the Mad Scientist/Alchemist is the more reasonable half and the Thief/Mutated form is his crazy side. I'll be trying to add little bat wings to the Mad Scientist form as he's got those as a mutation as well. - EDIT - This character was made into a cohort, I'm still going to paint up the figures since I started on them, but the Alchemist will be following the orders of a new Priest of Asmodeus (below Hellknight). Alchemist form art inspiration Mutated form art inspiration Bard, Sandru Vhiski (Reaper) - Alexite is a Chaotic Evil Bard (Detective) is just loves to kill things and use subterfuge to do so. The figure is smiling, I'm going to attempt to use paint to make him look like he's sneering. I've also filed off his goatee and given him a cleft chin. Art inspiration Elf Ranger, Arthal Nightblade (Reaper) - Maloc is a human mercenary fighter (archer) from Mwangi (think Africa) who looks like Heimdall from Thor. I've already filed off his ear points to make him look more human. I'm also planning on giving him a tiny beard (but going to double check on that with the player first before I do so). Art inspiration Not shown - Hellknight who'll be joining us in a few weeks. I need to talk to the player and find out what that character will look like and find a figure for it. Obviously, he'll be the last thing I paint here. Still waiting on hearing back from the Player, will bug him again soon. Victus - Priest of Asmodeus, becoming the main character for the Player who also has the crazy Alchemist gnome. Need to find an appropriate figure for this guy. Art inspiration drawn by the Player himself All of these are evil characters who are part of the Queen's Hand, an elite squad that is on the hunt for a character who committed treason agains the crown. My previous figure (Tiefling Summoner) is the nominal leader of the group. Here are the first pics of the figures as I got them all cleaned up, primed, slathered black wash over them, and then a bit of dry-brushing of the white primer again to bring out some pre-highlights. Finding I like doing this more and more. Shaddix & Mr. Keen - Bard - Archer - Throughout this WIP thread, I'll be asking for some C&C to try to get these all looking good (err evil). So any and all would be greatly appreciated!
  15. When Reaper released this miniature (Lady Moray), I was thrilled. She looks just like my very first D&D character, a bard named Valanth Mocnjay, who has a pet mockingbird. I bought the figure right away. I didn't like the long knife (short sword?) she was holding in her left hand, so I converted it to a lute I had in my bits box, which I thought more fitting. (Lute is from from Reaper's Adventuring Accessories pack SKU#02638) The stump and log are from Secret Weapons Miniatures. The snow is crushed glass (also from SWM). The wooden base was turned by hand by a friend of mine. He sells them for $5 each. (Send me a PM if you want his email address.) Any feedback would be appreciated, especially on the base. I haven't varnished anything yet, so I could easily make touchups. Update: see photos of base additions in later post.
  16. Lem! My eyes hurt, I don't think I will be painting another halfling anytime soon. Good thing I think I got one of the nicest sculpts done. Static grass is not my friend right now, might have sprinkled a bit too much.
  17. Well here she is! I'm having camera problems again, probably because this is the first time I've used photocopied backdrops. The camera isn't having it as the pics came out pretty grainy, and these are after enhancement. At any rate, Liriel is finished! I may break out the Nikon or a borrowed Canon for better pics, but I'm ready to get her out of my hair. Also, Jazzy wants everyone to know that she picked out where the flowers and tuft went. LOL! Enjoy, and comments are always encouraged and appreciated! Close-up, her left eye still freaks me out... Thankfully it looks good at normal size! LOL! These last 2 were an experiment on placing her on a cork rather than on the foam covered wooden block. I may experiment with my white felt later... I'm still trying to master my photography skills which are still lacking. HOWEVER! For those of you who have been following my grumblings on photography, today I placed a pre-order for the new Samsung Galaxy s5, which is supposed to have a very good camera in it! It should be in on April 10th, and for those who know, this makes me really, really happy! P.S.: For the WIP of the entire project, which is much more than just Liriel, please check out Jazzy's Garden of Eden.
  18. Anwyn (Reaper 3080) here plays one of my top 3 favorite marches to play on piccolo, John Phillip Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever. I play this piccolo part at concerts 3-5 times a year, sometimes as a guest musician in other bands. I shortened her flute a bit to make it more piccolo sized, but it is still a bit big. At least she is holding the instrument correctly, even if she is lifting it a bit much, and her head is turned too far to the left to actually be playing. (Pet peeve about flutist in art....) Here is the United States Army Field Band, with the entire flute section playing the solo together, which proves that piccolos CAN play in tune!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=M5bcpjUjLpU#t=119 Edited to add SKU to title
  19. Alright! Now I am working on Sandru Vhiski. We'll be using him for the swashbuckler/bard in our DragonLance campaign. I simply ADORE Martin Jones' paint job of him, so I am going to more-or-less be copying it (although not half as well!). 1. Primed! 2. Base colours blocked out with some of the details, etc. I got interrupted tonight, or I would have got a bit more done. Next up is some touch ups, followed by shading and highlighting. And yes, if you look closely you can see chest hair. ;) Current soundtrack is Little Boots.
  20. Here are some recent minis i painted !! Reaper= Viking girl Reaper..Sir william Darksword: Female Bard Games workshop: scratch built Games workshop: Scratch built Reaper: Satheras My Site~~ http://paintworksminis.shutterfly.com/
  21. Well, might as well post some of my best stuff. and Sheep-Thing:P Most of my Minis that I'm proud of are ones that I've Mangled...I mean Modified. So here goes nothing... Note: I'm just posting one Pic per Mini so I do not Overload anyones Inter-Webs, hopefully. You can find more pics of each in my PhotoBucket Album linked in my Sig. So that was Sheep-Thing. Made from a couple of DDMs and some fuzzy cotton sheet thing. Was inspired by a player in the Local Encounters group. Her PC was a Tiefling Fire Elementalist that had refluffed her powers as being originating from a Deformed, two-legged Sheep named Snapdragon She had saved. So I made Sheep-Thing for Her. Splug, Goblin Sorcerer and Emergency Ration Supply :P Also, Used for my Goblin Cleric, Itch, that I played during the first Drow themed Encounters Season last year. Itch was Awesome! He had conviced 3 Goblin Minions to follow him at one point. Fed one to an Ogre, One died in battle and the Third, "Meat-Shield #3", Road a Spider that was on Fire into the Drow Torcher Theater as a distraction! Fun Times! Itch was played during the same season as Sheep-Thing was. Behold! My Lazor Beholder! Was a Prize for the DDM Guild Community Draft at GenCon 2012. Another Prize from GenCon 2012 Com. draft. I painted a Clear Plastic DDM Guild rebase as a Shardmind warrior-type. The DDM Elder Blue Dragon Repainted for the 2012 North American DDM Championship! Winner of the Champs won this bugger! Mini is one of the best sculpts in the entire DDM line and seeing it with a decent paintjob proves that. And Damn, that thing took forever to paint! For the "God of War and Tyranny" Bane here originally came with a rather Dinky Mace. So, I fixxed it:P And finally, we have my "Country-Western Cow-Boy":P So, I took a DDM Goristro and Chopped off its Right Arm, repositioned it, then made him a Cowboy Hat, gave him a Tongue and added a little wooden Guitar to his now correctly positioned Arms. GF
  22. This is my four miniature ever. I'm pretty proud of it. Wish I knew how to do better shading. I just wash with ink...and I feel like I'm not very good with that. (It's 03107 - Fynch Brassfrog, Gnome Bard)
