  1. A little while ago a work colleague turned up with a kitten. At first had to ban her from the study with my minis, etc. But thankfully Pikelet is now much better behaved and will happily sit on my shoulder or next to me on the chair and watch me paint. Seems enthralled by me painting. Which is kind of cool. Only occasionally have to stop her from coming onto table. Found these pics on my phone I took to post on Facebook for the guys in my gaming group. Oh yes occasionally she likes to sit on my head near the lamp now it is getting cold in Goulburn as it is warm.
  2. This is a catgirl pirate ( "Nyamaunir-Piratin"), figure #15503C from Das Schwarze Auge, produced under license by Ral Partha Europe (which is not Ral Partha). Got that? She is a wee bit on the small side. Here from left to right are a cat person (Khaliman) from the French "Alkemy" game, our little kee kat pirate, Reaper's 77340: Avatar of Sekhmet, and Reaper's 03478: Tawny Firehair, Cat Girl. Here she is up close. She has some nice details and a more fuzzy appearance than most of the cat people minis I've seen. This is my standard priming: A thinned coat of Titanium White allowed to dry for a full day, then a wash with thinned Burnt Umber. It's related to Renaissance painting techniques and I find it gives a good warm foundation to start from. I was painting her at the same time as some wolves, for economy of paint. I figure I'm going to paint her like a grey cat. The first coat of paint is a light grey mixed from Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna, lightened a good deal with white. Here's a back view: It may be noticed I'm a little casual how I apply my paint. There are bits not covered and the paint has been thinned down and it isn't always the same opacity because of that and the under-brown shows through. I mixed a slightly more translucent, darker version of the same grey and added some more. Then I took some matte pure Carbon Black and indicated in her eyes, nose, mouth, and claws. I put an undercoat of black on her sabers as long as I was at it, since I find it looks very good under silver. Tune in later to find out what's next ...
  3. Ghost King does not appreciate kitty disturbing his grave. Kitty is unconcerned. The king was a study in frustration and the pics are not the best. His armors shadows are much more pronounced IRL and the dirt of the graveyard is much darker IRL. Kitty is itty bitty but I managed to get the eyes painted, I bout jumped for joy. The base was the most fun. The resins details are so sharp, lovely to work with. As always C&C welcomed. I will take all the advice I can get and attempt to apply it to the next figure cause after over a month, I'm so one with this dude. Thanks for lookin!
  4. What is it he's avenging? Did someone eat his lasagna?
  5. This was the last of the Tieflings (aka Hellborn) in my set. I could probably use more, since my campaign is full of Tieflings. This particular familiar set is also done. Yay! Of the other familiar set, I only have the winged-snake left.There is nothing special about the cat. He was just too small for me to do much with. He just got a dry-brushing in gray. The faerie dragon I wanted to give brilliant blue wings, but I imagined that if he folded his wings they would be more camoflage, so I went with browns.The paladin was fun to paint. I should have done something with his shield. I imagined some kind of flame motif, but just did not have any good ideas.
  6. So I went in on a Kickstarter a while ago (I know, shocking, right?) that Dark Sword did for their Critter Kingdoms line of anthropomorphic figs. I was mostly in it for the bunnies, but it got three cats in with all the other goodness. I was thinking of painting something for my wife, and thought of doing up those cats styled after our cats (I'll need to order a 4th cat fig from Dark Sword at some point). Looked at the figures I had, and the Paladin definitely would have to get painted up as Marty. (I might as well, not continue, everything after cute cat pic will likely be ignored.....ah well). So this is what I was able to come up with. Sorry the pics aren't lit as well as I'd like; I've got a lamp out of commission. Tomorrow is my wife's birthday, so we'll see how she like it then.
  7. This was one of my diorama entries at ReaperCon 2016. The idea came to me while watching Once Upon a Time and seeing the "Troll" bridge. This bridge is a toll bridge in Storybrooke that someone renamed Troll Bridge. I was then looking at Dark Sword's Critter Kingdoms Anthropomorphic line and came across the Horned Toad Assassin and thus the Toad Bridge came to be. It was originally going to be a larger piece with a troop of three or four facing off against the toad but it would have taken up most of my carrying case. So it got shrunk down and became just the cat against the Toad. The name also evolved into "Contention of Ownership." "Contention of Ownership" Silver, Diorama, ReaperCon 2016
  8. Posting this now while I think of it, but it could be a little bit before I get started; I was prepping a bunch of minis yesterday.... I noticed that Dark Sword had a few cats in their Critter Kingdoms KS (I was there for the bunnies....). Decided I would paint them up as our cats for my wife (shhhh, its a surprise). I have three figs so far, so will need to order another at some point, since we have four cats. But to start with, I'm going to paint Nom - Cat Paladin (DSM8079): as the fearless leader of our band of cats, Marty: Should be interesting trying to get both the colours and patterns right. Luckily the fig is heavily armored so I only need to worry about the face and tail.
  9. After spending a lot of time working on speed paint tabletop minis, I decided to switch it up and try to do as good of a paint job as i can on a few of my pewter minis. I selected: 03253 sabertooth cat Andowyn Thrushmoor, Bonehenge Iconic from RCon 2016Crimson Herald, Disciple of C'thun from RCon 2016 Dodo from Bombshell Miniatures Ram from Bombshell miniatures (no picture yet) 14080: Guardian Angel, Crusaders Solo enjoy the poor cell phone pictures of the three i have pictures of
  10. Greetings! I've just finished this Ral Partha oldie from my collection - ES54 Winged Panther. I went for a naturalistic black panther look but with a bluish sheen to the highlights (a bit like you sometimes see in movies as they're prowling through the jungle!). The wing skin recesses are actually a really dark red/brown but you can't exactly see it on these pics. Interestingly, the blue highlights seemed a lot bluer after I added the static grass to the base. Thanks for looking!
  11. Apologies in advance for the poor pictures, still really struggling when it comes to photographing the larger stuff. Any how, presenting my first attempt at painting a bust, Darkswords Portrait of a Tiefling:- You can find a WIP thread for her here. Don't think she looks too bad, but I'm not sure if I'll get any more busts in the future though, I don't really have the patience or skill to paint this larger scale stuff. As always, any comments of criticisms are greatly appreciated..
  12. Yep, I am also jumping on this bandwagon. Haven't painted a bust before, so lets see how badly I screw this up. Got her assembled this morning in the hope of getting started on the painting later today, but I had some gaps to fill (she went together quite well, but my superglue kept drying before I could get the parts completely flush), so I'm leaving the green stuff to dry over night.
  13. Note: All of these are from Reaper Bones #77176 (familiar pack) I haven't done the bases for these yet, those will be done later. I also accidentally deleted the photo of the ferret... Sorry. First up, the Fox. Not bad... Not GOOD, but not bad either. Second, the Cat. I decided to do it as a Siamese cat, 'cause it doesn't look too "fluffy", and I hate black cats (even though both of mine happen to be black...). Though it turned out okay, I did notice afterwords the large seam along it's back (too late now), and that I failed to do a proper "fade" on it's front-right leg... The rest faded nicely though. Thirdly, the Bird. Too small to be a hawk (which I already did with the "animals pack" anyway), and too small to be a raven (which would be boring to paint anyway), I went with a Blue Jay... I'd like to remind you how small this figure actually is (about the size of my fingernail) - so I think I got a pretty darned good amount of detail on it, all things considered. :D Note 2: I didn't do the bat yet, nor the fairy dragon... I'll show off the bat, faerie dragon, and ferret later in another "batch".
  14. This is one of the last figures from my year-end Conga Line of finishing up half-done minis, Reaper's 60079: Lyrie Akenja, a Pathfinder miniature sculpted by Julie Guthrie. She's a special figure to me. Lyrie Akenja is the first figure I bought after a twenty-year hiatus from minis. I spotted her somewhere, thought "Wow, an African wizard! Things sure have changed," and bought her, along with a few other minis. I then proceeded to give her the worst paint job I had ever given a mini in my life. I hadn't realized that I needed glasses nowadays, and I was too nervous to focus properly. So after some angst, I soaked her paint off and started again. And set her aside for a couple of years while I developed a new skill set. And then picked her up again to finish with the Conga Line. I like her little pushing the hood up with the wand gesture.
  15. And because I shouldn't miss one (I did have a run on the critters) this is one of the dark sword miniatures critters from their latest kickstarter. these are a little more posed than the Oathsworn critters but they still have a lot of personality and can add quite a bit of fun to the workbench. (especially after 54 tyranids in 12 hours). this fellow has learned the art of fighting and drinking and become a true expert. I had a good time with the reds on the tunic and tried a little bit of freehand on the inside of the cloak. Styles and patterns on clothing don't come easy for me as I prefer my clothing rich toned natural and unpatterned. but this guy was just begging for a little color on the inside of the cloak so I gave it a shot. Enjoy!
  16. This week I painted up the big cat figure that came with the Bones II KS original set of figures. He belongs to the Animal Companions pack in the online store. I chose to paint him as a Snow Leopard to use in my Frostgrave games. I just did a quickie tabletop paint job on it, but am pleased with the results. As always, C & C welcome.
  17. This is Sandra Garrity's 02075, Katarina the Invoker. Technically she is from the set 03375: DHL Classics: Female Wizards, which seems to be different only in that the figures have much smaller bases. To increase stability I glued her to a fender washer. This is a figure I started a long while ago and finished only recently as part of my Conga Line of Doom. I wanted to refine her further, especially the tortoiseshell cat at her feet, but time is short and minis need playing with.
  18. As with Katarina the Invoker, this is really from the set 03375: DHL Classics: Female Wizards. The figure is not quite as shown in 02115 as the figures in 03375 have tiny bases, barely larger than their clothes, which is why I have attached them to fender washers. She is also part of my year end Conga Line of finishing up half-done minis. If I didn't do something like this I would probably fuss over her forever. Sandra Garrity is a wonderful sculptor for women with lots of personality.
  19. I wanted to paint this one up since I saw it in the stretch goals of the Bones 2 Kickstarter:
  20. Nella Cailean with her cat. Couldn't quite get the camera to focus, even with several attempts.
  21. So, I'm working on my sculpting and have lots of little projects I'm doing. Therefore, it seemed to make more sense to just do a running journal of my work rather than individual posts on each piece as I go. Please feel free to offer any input, advice, constructive criticism, or praise. The first piece I'm showing is an inquisitor gal I did for a character I use when my daughter practices GMing Pathfinder games. I went with a corset around the cliché inquisitor robe as I wanted her to have some of the expected look, but with her own twist on it. I also went with a skirt under the coat to give more layers to make the sculpt more interesting. Next, I have an in-process sculpt of my kineticist, Paco Bumblekins. as all he does is shoot blasts of water, I always have him do finger guns for it, so that was a big part of the sculpt. Also, he doesn't wear armor, so he's got a strange hobo-themed attire going (which will eventually include a long coat which seems to be made of billowing waves). Finally, I have my "Sweet and Stabby" character. She's fashioned to look like a sweet, innocent young girl (maybe a farmer's daughter or some such), but hiding a readied dagger behind her back. Maybe she's just townfolk, maybe she's the party rogue, maybe she's a priestess of Calistria. I like the flexibility of the character. Anyway, enjoy!
  22. Heya Got inspired this weekend. I present for your viewing the Elven Hunting "Cat" 14453. I am not sure how I am going to base the army hence the just brown base. I'm going for a fantasy look on this force, it's for my Spawn. She wants dragons and magic looking things. Hence the color.. This was a fun paint. I like painting beasties.. There are colorations of his fur, but cell phone cameras being what they are and missing lightbox. Excuse the bad photos..
  23. I painted this wolf as a large animal companion for my husband's hunter. The medium sized version of the wolf was painted in April. This kitty was a quick color and pattern check for the wolf. Random Toad!
  24. I got the Reaper Bones Animal Companion set (sku 77216)... and decided to paint them all at the same time. All I've done so far is put on the base coat, and the color layer. I did a little shading, but haven't done any highlights yet. Nor have I painted the bases (at all). Any thoughts or advice before I highlight them and do their bases?
  25. I must say, the small size of these models (especially the smaller of them) made this a nice challenge. I did my best to find reference photos of real animals to use as a basis for painting them, which was a big help. I have two sets of each of these, and with the exception of the wolf, wolverine, and bat, I painted the duplicates differently, to provide more variety. Here are pictures of the Animal Familiars: Bat, Crow, Red Fox, Weasel, and a 'black' cat. Bat, hawk, grey fox, ferret, and a brown-striped tabby cat. And here are pictures of the Animal Companions: Snow leopard, vulture, wolverine, wolf, brown bear. Black panther, falcon, wolverine, wolf, black bear.
