  1. Didn’t really turn out as well as I hoped, my lack of skill and weak facial features didn’t help. Might revisit at some point. They can’t all be winner!
  2. I'm working on Cassie the Gnome Sorceress (bones version) and she's coming along okay, but... Not quite where I want her. See, this image from the store is what I'm going for. And this is where I'm at now. There's a bit of a gap between these two... Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions? Please be brutal.
  3. So a few nights ago me and the wife were watching some House of Cards and in the last episode we saw the main character shows a huge table he's been working on with some Civil War miniatures on it and that got me thinking how often and where have I seen miniatures on TV or in the movies. The ones that come to mind are: House of Cards, mentioned above 40 Year Old Virgin, where we get a few shots of Carrell painting some miniatures under his magnifying lense. On HGTV, there was a Househunters International, where they are looking for a place in Sweden and the guy that gets the house also has some kind of cellar outside in the common garden where he's got a collection of Warhammer miniatures. On the Olympics in the last few weeks, there was the one Canadian skier (don't remember his name) who has a brother with cerebral palsy and in the little human interest story, they mentioned the brother was an artist, and they cut away to him painting some miniatures as well as a big canvas with some flowers on it. I saw some article somewhere too, don't even remember what magazine, of some football player who likes to paint miniatures as well. Any other things that come to mind to anybody else?
  4. ...or, as pretty much everybody else in the RPG world knows it, a Remorhaz. From memory, I think remorhaz are supposed to be more of a light ice-blue, but I got a bit carried away, so this one has more of a tropical look about it than an arctic one. Never mind. This was a real quickie paint job, taking about an hour and a half from start to finish. There's a lot more detail I could concentrate on, and maybe I'll revisit it one day, but for now it's good enough for gaming, and that's good enough for me.
  5. Howdy, An Ice Troll... A Nice Troll... Kev! P.S. It's all in the parsing?
  6. Howdy, He's a Marshan! Kev! P.S. Hey, batter, batter... Swing!
  7. Howdy, That sentient club keeps egging him on... Kev! P.S. He's really not a bad guy!
  8. Howdy, Thrill me to the Merrow! Kev!
  9. So this holiday break I decided to try starting, and maybe even finishing Ma'al (Reaper 77580), aka Tiamat. I go back to work next Wednesday, so this is a bit ambitious, but at least I am going to use the biggest brushes I can get my hands on! I got rid of mold lines and glued it together on the Saturday before Christmas. This morning I got up the courage and got out the green stuff. I had started applying base coat when hubby said I should document the progress. So here are some progress pictures:

    Warg - 77202

    Here is a warg for my D&D campaign. He can be a direwolf, stand in for a pack leader wolf, etc. I love this mini! Lots of detail and fun to paint!
  11. Finally finished her. boy, that blue skin was tricky and I’m still not entirely happy, but considering how much time I spent on her I feel pretty good.
  12. One of my players chose this mini to represent her D&D character, Marra Del'a'vare. Marra is a half Drow but she doesn't know it. She has pale skin, white hair, and red eyes and thinks she is albino. She magically adds colors to her hair. She used to be a thief but after things went badly, she is trying to do good and became a cleric. My players came up with quite the party for this campaign. In addition to Marra, there is a wood elf monk, a Hobbit rogue (he says halfling is a derogatory term lol) a Dragonborn paladin and a kobold sorcerer. Anyway, here is Marra! Edit-Didn't attach pictures .

    A first post -

    I've lurked for about a year - finally got up the courage to post. I've returned to painting after a break of many years. This is a recent figure I'm proud of (my photography skills however....) - hope you enjoy
  14. I posted some of these WIPS the other night, finally got around to finishing them up...ready for the game table.
  15. I painted this figure as a white 2 years ago, it took about 6 weeks of painting individual scales. When I was done I thought it would probably look just as good if I drybrushed it. I got the second one from a mini exchange or goodwill box, Dry brushing the body this time took 3 days. For the wings I was inspired by a bearded dragon. The nest was added per MiniSpawns request. It was a stretch goal freebie from Oathsworn's Sensible Shoes line. I have 2 bronze hatchlings as well, on TMM like the mother and one NNM.
  16. Howdy, Play that fungi music! Kev!
  17. Howdy, If you walk without rhythm, you won't attract the worm... Kev! P.S. If you walk without rhythm, you'll never learn!

    Various WIPS

    My time has been limited as of late, so when I get to paint I tend to overwhelm myself a bit. Lots of progress but nothing finished!
  19. Howdy, En guard! Kev!
  20. Hi Everyone! I'm new here, though I have been a lurker for many years at this point. I used to be quite into painting and sculpting miniatures but took a break when I went to college and I want to get back into it. I've backed bones 4 so I figured I should start warming up for it! So, after a four year break here is what I'm working on: Any feedback or critique would be wonderful! Cheers, PR
  21. Finally finished these two, been sitting around for awhile
  22. In Bones 2, Reaper had several large sea monster creatures, one of which, the Goroloth (Reaper’s answer to the Aboleth), came in the Expansion 2 set. This was one of the figures I was least interested in, and figured that if I ever got around to painting it, it would be because I was trying to finish up the set. Primordial evil fish monsters just aren’t my thing. Of course then my DM decided to introduce one into her game… so… Now I’m painting an aboleth. My inspiration from the 2e Monster Manual. After digging it out of my boxes of Bones minis, I did my usual washing in hot soapy water and scrubbing with a toothbrush. Mold lines were minimal, and ignored, but I did notice that the plastic on this guy was much softer than I’m used to. Reminded me a lot of Kaladrax’s head. Along with assembling, I went to the 5e Monster Manual to check on the size of an Aboleth. Large, aka a 2” base. Far too tiny for this mini, so I upped it to a 3” base. I glued the flying stand to the bigger base, and then covered it with blocks of cork attached with hot glue. I was picturing an underwater ruined palace. Sadly I don’t have a good statue that I could have ruined on the base. Once the mini was all assembled, I primed it with Blue Liner, and then blocked out the colors with Deep Ocean Blue, Oceanic Blue, and Marine Teal. The bony bits were painted with bone, as were the stripes on the tentacles, while the gills and suckers on the tentacles were painted with Monster Maw. The many eyes were painted with Heraldic Red. I then gave just about everything a wash with GW’s Leviathan Purple. It seemed appropriate. Returning to the base I primed it with black craft paint, and then dry brushed it with Mountain Stone, with more and more linen white added to it. I then applied dots of Jade Green to look like sea moss growing on it. I still need to bring the highlights back up, but this is where he's at now: Gonna call that ready for game!
  23. So, here is the second Reaper Bones that I have painted to completion. The only other one was a Chibi Mummy which I thought was a fun figure. So I'm not going to lie, I'm not super fond of the Bones material, I much prefer metal, but Gene Van Horne did such a beautiful job on this sculpt, I really wanted to paint it. Also, as has been mentioned so many times with Bones, with a larger figure, the detail seems to come out a lot better than with small pieces. With this figure, there was so much detail in her armor, with the metal, and strings and such, afraid I probably didn't hit it all, but did what I could. So here she is, hope you enjoy!
