  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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!
  5. 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..
  6. 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.
  7. 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".
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. I wanted to paint this one up since I saw it in the stretch goals of the Bones 2 Kickstarter:
  14. Nella Cailean with her cat. Couldn't quite get the camera to focus, even with several attempts.
  15. 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!

    14453

    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..
  17. 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!
  18. 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?
  19. 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.
  20. Presenting Edna, Craaaaazy Cat Lady! I had a lot of fun painting this mini, it's got some great details such as her crabby expression, the fluffy slippers, the rollers in her hair etc. I've been a bit self-indulgent here as I have immortalised my own cat twice in this mini (the one Edna is carrying & the one rolling on its back) & most of the others are cats I've known or looked after . The cats were very tricky to paint as they are so small - I had to paint them while they were still attached to their sprue. The tiled floor was created quite simply using air drying clay with grout lines etched into it. Thanks for looking, c&c's welcome!
  21. Hi ! A little commision work with a precise colors choice. All colors of Chakra ! Oo ... Really cool mini from MicroArt Studio.
  22. Another Demon. So many demons.
  23. So, I wanted to do a group of minis that were more thematic and played on having more character in the minis rather than just the generic fighter, wizard, etc. Therefore, I played on the idea of a rogue as a cat burglar by having the burglar actually meeting the cat. I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I thought the hair and the fabric of the clothing was particularly solid. I've definitely got more room to improve, but I was at least fairly satisfied with this one. The extreme close up of the face shows where I could improve the smoothness of the skin and such. Maybe more attention needed for the eyes themselves. In addition to simply making a figure, I was also thinking in terms of what would make creating a mold easier (for example, how far in should the cat lean, how far forwards/sideways should the angle of his arms be, etc.). I think it would be doable. On a side note, just want to give a shout out to Cosmic_Mastermind for giving some really good feedback on how to improve doing facial features.
  24. Recently, randomly, my... sweet (ya, let's pretend that's what I said) little cat has decided that she just has to sit on the desk I use for painting miniatures. It's in the kitchen, so she has access to it all the time, and I don't have so much room in my house that I can put away my stuff, so it stays out. She knocks over my minis, she gets her *beep* fur all over the place, she's makin' me mad. However, she only does it when no one is around, because she knows it's bad. She's a bad, bad kitty! I swear I'm going to... okay, let's not go into what I'm going to do to her, this is a friendly place. Anyway, what do you folks who have bad, evil little cats do to keep them away from your minis and your workspaces when you aren't around? Aside from closing the door, which I can't do. I love my cat, I really do, but she has her spaces, and she's being a twerp going into mine when she's knows she's not supposed to, and only doing it when no one is around to spank her.
  25. This is my Alice vs. Wonderland diorama I entered in my local con. It took third in diorama/vignette. I don't have a big enough photo setup for the whole thing so please excuse the pics. I was trying a reimagining of the classic tale with Alice and some Wonderland characters as badasses. Alice is 14311: Kassandra of the Blade. The Cheshire Cat is 02480: Sabertooth Tiger and the White Rabbit is a Darksword Rabbit Warrior. I sculpted the rabbit's watch and the paintbrush. The wickets are staples and the croquet balls are pin heads. The cards were downloaded, then printed, cut out and glued together. I wanted each to die in a unique way, appropriate to the characters. The base was made and stained in my school's woodshop. (I teach) I loved building this! My first big diorama. Your comments and critiques are welcome as always.
