  1. At the request of a few people, I am posting some of the Elmore dragons I completed a while ago. My wife bought me these over the years and I have the first 5. This was the third one I painted and due to the wide swath of wingspan I tried to add some freehand to it. because the wings are pretty straight and full open, the pattern is, for me a little to geometric. i have another so I may try again with something else soontm The snow on the base is gale force nine white snow from a box of flock I have had forever. Enjoy, C&C is welcome especially for what I could do better since the duplicate is on my great bookshelf of dragons.
  2. the final one of my un-pictured Elmore dragons. This one was a lot of work to put together, and I am still not overly thrilled with the final greenstuff work I had to do on the wings. These wings come in two parts because of the deep concavity. This also makes it pretty darn hard to paint. All in all I am pretty happy with how it came out but I think I could do better now. As with dragon #3, there is no basing due to space concerns. Hope you enjoy this one too. C&C welcome. Elmore Dragons 2 and 5 are on my shelf and will be painted soontm
  3. I posted some WIP of this dragon a really long time ago, but never got round to actually putting this in show off. Time to remedy that. This is my take on the Dark Sword Miniatures Elmore Dragon of Chaos which, of course is a recast of the original limited edition Ral Partha Dragon of Chaos. The dragon doesn't have any additional base because my limited display space makes huge bases difficult to deal with. This was one of my first big dragons that I tried to paint. The mini I got was also missing the long spines on the wings so I had to recreate those from green stuff and pictures. All told he took about a year and a half to paint. on the whole I am really pleased with the way it came out, including the fade on the horns. From my point of view though, my favorite parts of this dragon are the expression on the face and the really snake like tail. The tail in particular is just wonderful! Anyway C&C is always welcome and enjoy the show!
  4. Every year I throw a party for my primary gaming group. I usually try to have presents for everyone who is not of my family. This is the dark sword reprint of the RAFM reprint of the Ral Partha original white dragon. This also showed up in the set of dragon slavers. Anyway, pretty standard fare here. Tried to expand out and spread the coral on the minis base I think i like it. Spent about 4 hours here too. These may not be my best but with the size of my metal mountain, I have to work some on my speed painting too. Comments and critiques always welcome
  5. Every year I throw a party for my primary gaming group. I usually try to have presents for everyone who is not of my family. I wanted to try something new here and with Dontfear's western dragon thread I thought some "eyes" on the back of a desert style dragon. Played around with some brighter spots of color too. total time painting was about 4 hours for this dragon including the base; C&C are always welcome
  6. That's what Wikipedia tells me, in no uncertain terms. So, here it is. I have a large selection of miniatures that would make excellent Rogues (or Thieves, for us old schoolers), and I mean to get them painted. First up, we have a trio of Bushido minis for another Were-Fox character concept. A seductress, who's no stranger to fighting: Saki, Kitsune, and Fox Form: Next, is the amazing Dark Sword Female Assassin: Next up Eskin, Male Rogue: Then Vesper-On's The Duke: Gretchen vonKonigsmark from Raging Heroes will make an appearance as a gun-toting rogue: Along with Jirelle, Iconic Swashbuckler: And the Master Harlequina from Klockenbooty Freebooter Miniatures: Also making an appearance, once I get her in hand, is Lenore from Hasslefree. Not a rogue by description, she will be painted as one (and probably my favorite Thief of all time): You know the rules, anything goes! On with the show!
  7. My November painting goal is to clean off my "shelf of shame." First off is the DSM hedge knight I got in their last kickstarter. He was mostly done back when I maintained a consolidated WIP, but never got a base. I had originally intended for him to be the party fighter, but while painting him I learned that if you sneeze at him his sword bends. Maybe we'll go ahead and use him; after all, I did get two. For some reason when I look at the studio model on the DSM site I think of Norm Macdonald.
  8. Right, so while I wait for my Bones I'm going to attempt to do a WIP for the stuff I'm working through. I'm generally useless at taking progress pics so this will be a new experience for me. On the table at the moment I have my SDE monsters as a distraction and this... The first job was / is cleaning and assembly, so after a good scrub in soapy water I started to put together the main body. The fit was pretty bad and to assemble the 3 parts that I have already I had to boil and bend a few sections so that the sides and the spine meshed together even remotely. There are some gaps in there still but I intend going back in a filling them from the inside. The model comes with a clear plastic flying stand as well as a scenic resin one, so I'm going to use the resin on as otherwise whats the point? Here's the whole kit, minus the flying stand, awaiting my attentions, I've undercoated the inside of the mouth so I can paint that prior to assembly, I'll seal it off when finished with a light coat of varnish and then paint the rest of the fig when its all assembled. A dry fit of the parts has shown theres a hell of a lot more filling to be done once the 'face' gets put on, so I'm hoping my meagre putty pushing skills won't stand out too much on it. Its a pretty daunting job for me at the moment Still not sure what colour to paint it, I like the red scheme but I'm tempted to do a different route, maybe a deep black / purple up to a red highlight, not sure.... As I only get to paint at night I'm scared to get going on it as tired eyes make mistakes, maybe it will become a weekend job.
  9. This has been an incredible Sculpt to Paint. It started off as "Use a color I haven't used", and suddenly took off on its own. Thank you for the insight, suggestions, and inspiration that the forum has provided. Here is my "Autumn" Wood Elf Archer. C/C always appreciated !
  10. I am awaiting the arrival of my florescent desk lamp sometime today. As I said when I posted Lucius to the show off...I'm off to paint something DIFFERENT. I think this is quite different..ROFL. This is the Frog Bishop from Dark Sword Miniatures. I am looking forward to painting it. Its bigger; but just as challenging as the 25 mm, and the details are fantastic. So, here is what his Grace looks like. He's primed.
  11. This was in the swag bag from ReaperCon 2012...
  12. I'm maintaining two personal WIP's on purpose. I want to keep my Reaper Projects together in one place. Mainly because this is a Reaper Forum and I want to be certain that the balance of my work favours Reaper. This is the quickest way for me and for them to know that. Secondly, I hate clutter. A single catch all WIP will drive me bonkers because it will become crowded up with too many projects. PROJECT #1 Stonehaven Gnomes Priestess Page 1 I'm finally getting round to painting up my Heroe's of Sprocketshire Gnomes from Stonehaven. These are so terribly cute, I just love them and now wish I had gotten the entire collection. I have Sprocketshire and McKrakken's Glory Squad. First up is the Priestess from Heroes of Sprocketshire. I can't find her name in the Character Bio sheet, so I'll name her when she's done. The basing and my whole approach to these figures is based on the work I've seen done by fellow forum member Catdancer. I've been inspired by his work since I came here and I hope to achieve something approaching his work. At the very least, I would hope they "sing" in a voice he would recognize. She is almost there, but she needs a bit more work. More highlighting is needed on her boots, the gem needs more work and there needs to be more contrast on the stone she is standing on (which is made from a piece of garden mulch). Also I think I need to add a very, very tiny bit of flower to cover the stems of the mushrooms. This will be difficult as I make them from the heads of a pin and they are quite tiny. Further, I feel the base is still lacking some indefinable something. It's just "off" and I know it's not "there" yet. I will have to let it percolate a bit and see what I can come up with. I like these so well, I could paint an army of them and just might do so when they become available in the online store.
  13. Here's a mini that I painted up for Gencon's painting competition. I was rather pleased with how he came out, but this year's competition was pretty stellar and he didn't come home with anything. I've also posted him to CMON for those of you who care to vote. Anyway, here are some pictures:
  14. My wife bought this for me a couple of Christmases ago and I finally got around to painting it for her. I'm pretty proud of it. My detail work still leaves a lot to be desired, but I'm very happy with the blending on the sword and the cloak.
  15. some new stuff Like me on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/theminiature.painter.1 check my Cmon Gallery HERE
  16. Hi, Sorry if this has been posted already. Dark Sword posted a series of photos on their Facebook page on April 16th of their visit to Mr. Martin's house. His miniatures room is whimper inducing. The dioramas blow my mind. Worth a look if you haven't seen it already: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.490103917709505.1073741826.166253593427874&type=1 (I just finished the third volume, cus I don't got no HBO. Better than the second one IMHO.) Cheers.
