  1. "Paizo" carved on the bottom, from the early 2000's. I don't know much more than that.
  2. Lots of fun to paint. Nothing to glue. Fun, fun, fun! I love painting dark elves. I tried a little more modern skin tone this time. The previous ones I painted I gave them more of an old school look with some light purple to their skin.
  3. How slowly has this WIP gone? I started these elves in late spring 2016. Because of events and shake-ups I set aside all my work from that time, but now I have picked them up again. For this WIP I am making a warband of three female and one male Drow with support from a female sorceress Drider. The three women are the wonderful set 03516: DHL Classics: Dark Elves sculpted by the inimitable Sandra Garrity. I'm going to identify each separately because they also have individual SKUs and names and it's easier to keep track of them that way. The man is 14046: Ardynn, Elf Hero sculpted
  4. Just a quick and simple paint, nothing fancy. Couldn’t resist picking it up though, because every tabletop needs a werewolf (even if that tabletop has nobody to play with): He’s very shiny. I couldn’t find my brush-on sealer and had to use PVA sealer, which is always glossier than the label says. His fur is supposed to be mottled grey/white and brown/black, but I never know how to paint the not-obviously furry parts, and usually default to bare skin. In this case, Dark Elf Skin. So I guess he’s a drow werewolf. Also, this:
  5. Dark elves are fun to paint. This came out just so classic looking to me, love it.
  6. Opened this one up and got it primed when I noticed a very significant case of mold-slippage. The details on her right side and left arm just didn’t line up, and I don’t have the skill to file/green stuff it away. So, rather than weep and save the mini for a melt table, she became practice! This ended up being a combination of speedpaint, demimetallic experimentation, and basing attempt, 3-4 hours total work including lots of futzing with paint mixes on my palette. The results: Oh, and I made her a Dark Elf to try more white hair. The purple metal is Royal P
  7. This is an index thread for figures painted as Drow or dark elves which did not start out as official Drow figures. I thought people might like links to find figures which work well converted to dark elves, thus this index thread. It's not comprehensive, just some I've found. Feel free to add links if you find other figures which have been painted up as Drow. (I included pictures so it would be easier to see them and see if there are duplicates, but don't feel obliged.)
  8. Sorry for the terrible pic but I promised to show the dark elf worm riders with my modded weapons and assembled worms. The pic also shows the legs of one of the worms as I received them and with my sculpting add ons. The legs looked unfinished to me so I roughed them up and finished them myself. The rest of the models were very detailed so it's weird they didn't do the legs. I figure I might as well do the command group too so I'll upload more pics of them hopefully better pics.
  9. Decided to paint him as a Drow to add to House Depsana's arsenal of nastiness.
  10. Well, looking to invest a bit more in this hobby, I got the Jen Haley/Anne Foerster miniature painting video set from CMON recently. I think it was a great resource, and I decided to use this mini as a chance to practice some of what they showed. As usual, more pictures and thought process are on my blog: link So, this was my first time trying a few different things: Glowing eyes: Yeah, this didn't come out right. I think I needed more glazing to cut down how much of it looked bright white. Hair without drybrushing: I splotched up the hightlighting a
  11. Well, I finally got to a point on these where it would be worth it to post. These are my major projects that I will be working on for the next few months and all four are planned ReaperCon entries. Right now there is not much to see as they are just at the primer stage but the bases are built and also ready for paint. So from left to right we have the Dark Elf Assassin from Scale 75, Tarko from Scale 75's Fallen Frontiers line, Dark Sword's Wood Elf Warrior, and Reaper's own Crimson Herald. Please excuse the blurry pics, I am cleaning my apartment and this was the best place to tak
  12. I finished Dhaelia for my D&D friend, this is for my current campaign about Broken Gods. Dhaelia is the group's rogue/arcane trickster. Took about 4 hours total on this piece as I'm trying to get it ready for next week's game and I have a lot of other projects going that need to get done before ReaperCon gets here! WIP thread located here: As always, C&C are welcomed and appreciated, thanks for looking!
  13. Another WIP for me to do this week. I've got Isla Darkstep, Reaper SKU #02698 which I'm painting up for my final D&D player. This one is going to be painted up to look like a drow. Anyhow, getting started, I have a couple pics as I got it cleaned and prepped now. Again going with black primer first and then I'll wait until it dries and do some white primer dry-brushed over it to pick out details. I just placed her integral base on a 1 inch circle of wood that I like to use for my bases and then put some procreate around the edges and sculpted the stones to match what was on he
  14. Nice to paint something small again. Probably one of many Drow to come.
  15. Ok all, not my best work but this is my first time working on a drow skinned model. Any advise or suggestions?
  16. IF YOU ARE MY EXCHANGE PARTNER, PLEASE DO NOT GO FURTHER UNLESS WILLING TO BE SPOILED!!!!! So my Exchange Project for the Spring Exchange is going to be chronicled here. My project will be painting the following miniature... I'll be trying to make this Mini into a Drow Vampire or something similar. I'm going to my FLGS Tomorrow for painting lessons. Wish me luck. GF
  17. So for a while now I've been incorporating the dark elf skin triads into my washings and shading quite a lot depending on the colors, but they are becoming kind of common for me. Does anybody else use them for the same purpose? Just curious....
  18. Another model rescued from my friends trash bin. It was in a blister pack bubble with a monkey, no label and other than the 2005 paizo marking on the bottom of the base, no other clues as to were it came from. I thought that was extremely odd, a drow with a monkey. After some heavy google fu, I finally figured out that it was a model from what appears to be Paizo's 1st line on minis. He went along with a module story of some sort where is was listed as the "Evil Sheriff." Not a whole lot of detail and after I primed him, far less. I did what I could with him and being my first drow paint up,
  19. Painted as a "fun" mini in between Warmahordes / Secret Santa Projects A dark elf from Raging Heroes, painted up in my Legion of Everblight colors. I tried to put flames on her sword (there's something "wreathing" her sword, but I'm not sure what it is), but I don't think it came off very well. Her clothes are super-silly, just like my Secret Sophie project, so I'll be glad to paint some more reasonably clothed guys soon. Let's review what she's wearing: one armored boot.one armored shoe + metal bits stuck to her leg. metal bikini bottom with loincloth. metal bikini top that is
  20. I struggle completely with skintones, even real human ones, and doing something natural looking but alien is beyond me. For my new elf army however, I wanted to try something new and go with an 'inversed drow' colour scheme - pale skin, with blueish grey tint, and cold black hair (p3 coal black as base). I am not sure how to transfer that idea into reality; for rank-and-file, with little actual skin showing, going with just a pale skintone base, lightgrey/blue wash mix and highlights should suffice, but the method doesn't really scale to characters with more skin showing. As usual, I would pr
  21. Another Games Workshop mini (at this point you should probably assume anything I paint is from there unless stated otherwise), a former Dark Elf Fleetmaster (I'm not sure what his new, fancy Age of Sigmar name is). This guy was a serious pain in the bum to paint, even with my tiny brushes I was forever getting paint on the wrong bits, in hindsight I probably should have realized fully assembling him first was a big mistake. But I persevered and I don't think the final results are too bad! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  22. This past weekend I finished Tierdeleira, Dark Elf Cleric, from the Bones I Kickstarter "Dark Elves" set. This wraps up this set for me. I did a quick tabletop paint job, and I'm really pleased with how this figure turned out. I think I finally got the hang of highlighting the black skin. The only thing I'm not happy with is that I wanted the two different reds, the one I used on her cape (a more burgundy red) and the one I used on her ribbon-like hangings (a more true red), to look more different but they ended up looking very similar. I should have been even more drastic in my base col
  23. For those that have followed along with my "All Bones About It" blog, where I'm chronicling my effort to paint all the Bones 1 Kickstarter figures I purchased, I was happy today to have reached the 200th figure out of the 266 that I am painting from Bones 1. It feels good to hit another milestone on this adventure! It seems all down hill from here, with only 66 figures left to go. With some real determination I think I can get it done by the end of the year. Currently I'm working on the Dark Elves set, and this past week I completed Liela, Dark Elf Wizard, from that set. I did a qu
