  1. These three little guys were painted this morning before I went to work. I have had them sitting on my desk for about a month, just looking at me begging for some color. So, this morning, I decided to make it happen. They are going to represent some imps for a couple of NPCs I have in an upcoming game, and will function very similar to the three stooges. I am really looking forward to dropping them on the table. Hope you enjoy! CAH
  2. Yup after that comment in one of my other WIP's I couldn't stop myself from starting a new WIP. I had this sitting on my queue for a bit now. Since I've been working on the Zombicide Walkers so much lately I had to try my hand at a different model of zombie. I decided on Bonesylvanian Barb. The eyes were my first step. After posting I realized what was bothering me about them. The light isn't in the same angle on both sides. Doh! Also all was going well with using the same colors as my other zombies, when I decided to drift from the previous method by adding a glaze to add color. I trie
  3. In keeping with the desert like theme, I painted these two snakemen as another possible encounter for my players. I loosely based the paint jobs on a brown cobra. Both pieces we painted in conjunction with two other pieces during our Saturday online painting group. The markings on the cobra are my first attempt at freehand on something other than lines on clothing. Obviously I have more work to do, but I'm getting there. The prairie tick was done for someone else. He mentioned that he had a Deadlands game that was heading into a desert region. I really like how the bloodsack on t
  4. This figure came with a few old circa. 1990 lead minis from the Random Box O' Goodwill project. It was signed "Ridolfi" and "90" on the bottom, but remained a mystery until I ran into Mr. Ridolfi himself: My martial arts friends tell me that fighting with two sais is silly, like fighting with two shields. Oh well. Original WIP here. I finished him on the Memorial Day Weekend Paint Binge.
  5. Greetings folks! After a break from painting for several weeks I was struck by the muse once again and threw myself back into the hobby will full force. The result is what you see below: Malek the Necromancer. This being only the 6th mini I have painted I think my skills have improved and although there are some parts of this mini I am not very pleased with, there are others that I think came out better than I had thought. Overall technique wise I think I learned a bit more about thinning my paints and how to (attempt) layering. I tried to utilize color theory but somewhere a long th
  6. Here are a few skeletons I did as a quick painting test. Basically, I primed them, base coated, and then used a dark wash. The goal was something that looked dirty and dark, and was ready for the table. I feel like it came out the way I was hoping, though next time I think I may bring up some minor highlights to make them pop. I have more skeles and zombies to complete, so I should get plenty of practice. As always, C&C is welcomed and appreciated. CAH
  7. I was at Adepticon in the Chicago area earlier this month. I took pictures. The whole album (except for Crystal Brush entry photos) is here, and here are some to look at: The legendary Julie Guthrie and Bob Ridolfi! The Reaper Paint 'N' Take: I took one picture of my work.I brought "Black Moon's Bane", the spelljammer, and a group of my painted minis. I also took Crystal Brush photos in a separate file. Photobucket is being a little wonky, but if I can get them straightened out I will post them by tomorrow. There were so many beautifully painted mini
  8. Picked this up from FLGS on Friday and painted it up yesterday. Very much a quickie paint job by my standards - under 2 hours total. (I'm not a speed painter. ) I was originally going to try to do it fairly realistic but then went off the deep end and started adding highlights with spectral white. It looks weird but that not-quite-right look appealed to me. What do you folks think? Comments and criticism appreciated as always. Edit - replaced picture Edit the second - added missing tags
  9. This guy felt almost like cheating, given that he's been sitting at 98% finished on my desk for awhile; I literally just had to slap some paint on his base and he was done. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out, though, plus he was technically finished in February, so I'm counting him for the RPChallenge. I called him George. He just...I dunno, looks like a George to me. The blood was kind of an afterthought, which is why it looks so bright. He just looked like he needed an extra little something, so that's what I gave him. :) His pants are a lot more green in person, th
  10. Table Top quality. Ready to eat players souls.... Not much else to say.
  11. This is one of the first minis I bought after coming back to the hobby after a twenty-year hiatus. I started her, then stalled for a long time, then finished her off as part of my year-end Conga Line. She's a nice figure.
  12. Yet another of the Conga Line of half-finished minis, finished. This is Reaper 03155, Vandora Waverunner, Pirate. She's painted up for a player who wanted a female pirate figure who was sensibly dressed. The character comes from an area of the world with hyperbolic geometry -- basically a like an M. C. Escher lithograph. There are a few clues to this on the figure. For one, her hat is impossible. No fault of the sculptor for not knowing, but that's a shape based on a relatively recent misunderstanding of an old 2-D image of a plain old three-cornered hat seen from an odd angle,
  13. Another from the Conga Line, this is Bob Ridolfi's 50016: Rosie, Chronotechnician. I painted her up for a Shadowrun game. Originally this picture was for scale for the Malifaux Whiskey Golem, but I think they look right together.
  14. So I'm painting up this figure as a PC because I haven't anything quite suitable. She's a ship's captain from a strange corner of the world with hyperbolic geometry. I am planning to do a little hyperbolic graph based on some of M.C. Escher's designs on her parchment. It also accounts for the shape of her hat, which is an ahistoric error based on a misunderstood flat image of a perfectly ordinary tricorne hat. Not that I blame Ridolfi for that. That hat has entered pop culture the same way "Juliet caps" have, and with as little historical reality. Anyhow, I can lay the hat's shape
  15. Merry Christmas everyone! I managed to get Santa finished today. I plan eventually to make a diorama with him and the naughty and nice elves. While I like the reds of his suit, I tried to go from mid tone down and up on the bag. I didn't turn out nearly as well as I liked. But over all I like how he cam out.
  16. Yes, I finally managed to get another in my progress to finishing last year's Boneslyvanian Chibi's. I present Morty. Overall a simple paintjob, but I like how it turned out. Morty: Thanks for looking, and any C&C you feel like posting. PS:I really need to get my Boneslyvanian's based some day.
  17. This is the new Bones II version of Bob Ridolfi's Mab Grindylow, recently released in the store. There is a WIP thread here.
  18. The Kingmaker campaign I am running has some new players and here is the first of many miniatures I'll be painting for my players. I had a good time with this one! Bob is a fantastic sculptor. (But you all knew that already.) The character is an oracle of Sarenrae, albeit a bookish one, so I played down the left hand's arcane spellcasting from the concept art and redid him in Sarenite colors. Okay, fun stuff out of the way. I think every choice I made resulted in making the overall painting harder. The right hand is holding something glowing with OSL. I decided that thing was going to be g
  19. I've painted up a few members of my 5e adventuring party, and decided to paint one up for the DM as well. Since we seem to be fighting a lot of undead I decided to go with an undead guy. But lest the GM get too confident, I gave him a "very special" cloak. There's quite a bit of unpainted or just primer spots on the guy, but when the DM saw him on Saturday he couldn't tell it wasn't done. Since I've been in kind of a slump lately, I just fixed a few spots and called him finished. I'm very happy with how the cloak came out, despite the fact that I used ridiculous colors for i
  20. My next installment in my monthly Reaper Chibi, Gus. He was an experiment slightly mono-chromatic. I used various shades of blues in all but the highest white. Thanks for viewing and any C&C.
  21. Over halfway through the month and I decided I needed to start my next reaper Halloween chibi. So random draw at the start of the month was Gus. I had him all prepped up over the month. So I started him up today. Base coat of RMS Ghost White. Not original I know, but I wanted to go blue. So I shaded down with 3 layer of a mix of ghost white and sapphire blue. After that I blended back in some ghost white. Then I highlighted up with Pure White. I then base coated the chains with a mix of cloudy grey and sapphire blue. Here is what I wound up with after all that.
  22. I did her in more muted to colors just to see what I could do with them. I also decided on red eyes as I did not want her to be so warm and friendly in appearance.
  23. I paint this one a couple of years ago. I did not want a pale ghost. I wanted one that was bright and vibrant. So here she is (despite needing a few touch-ups)
  24. This guy was a TON of fun to paint! I was originally going to paint him up all steampunk-ish for NomadZeke for the Secret Sophie 2014 exchange, but the more I looked at him, the more I kept thinking how easy it would be to make him look like Red from the movie Hellboy (though I drew inspiration more from how he looked in the sequel); albiet a mirror-image, since Red's big arm is supposed to be on the right. :) I filed off all the buttons down the front (with a mental apology to the sculptor), carved the goggles to look a bit more like sawn-off horns, and carved off most of the patterning
