  1. I have three odd creatures that need paint. Clockwise from left: The Darksword Frog Prince sculpted by Dave Summers, which will be a gift for my mother (as was the Frog Jester last year, and the (Not So) Killer Frog in 2006...you'll note a theme in my gift-giving) The Ral Partha Couatl (11-402) sculpted by Dennis Mize, which will be necessary in my Eberron campaign. And...a...worm...thing...The base was stamped "Marauder," along with some rather unidentifiable squiggles that are now completely gone, since I clipped away the integral base. I did some cursory research to no avail. I'm probably going to paint this up as everyone's favorite "I've never heard of it" burrowing monster, the thoqqua. But if anyone can tell me what it was supposed to be, I'd be interested to know. The worm is pretty well ready for paint. Clipped off the integral base, used a Happy Seppuku stamp to make some floor and squished him down into the putty. Ready to go. The Frog Prince: I plan on building a little scene eventually for the frog folk I paint for my mom, and the Prince will be on a finished floor. This will be built with Hirst. But he also needs to be magnetic, so I shaved down a Hirst tile to sit on top of a GF9 mag base without towering over other bricks. Of course, that integral base doesn't look quite right on that tile, so he went into the bench vice: A few minutes with the jeweler's saw and I had this: Unfortunately, I also had this: That mangled foot will need some GS, and the forefoot will get a pin to hold it in place. I'm not Dave Summers, but I think I'm up to this task. Now, the Couatl: Dropped him on another magnetic base and gave him some scenery: That's this stuff, all built up and pulled into waves. The integral base had something that might have been leaf litter and might have been fire, so I decided to go with something fire-like. Probably will be painted like a rainbow wind. Next, I gave the wings a bit of a bend and glued them in place: That's all for now. Let me know what y'all think, and if anyone knows what the worm thing is I'd love to know!
  2. I painted this guy as a Christmas present for my mom. He was inspired by the first dog my parents had while I was growing up - a beagle named Tungsten. A couple of random goals I had were to use the airbrush that I got for a Christmas present last year, and to try something new (the freehand on the edge of the cloak). I kind of waited a bit too long to start on this miniature, so there are some definite shortcuts I took, but I'm still very happy with him.
  3. Guy of Gisborne here is going to be my Christmas present for my mom, so I'm trying to knuckle down and get him done this weekend. I'm taking a short break to post the progress so far. There are a couple inspirations for this miniatures - the first dog we had growing up was a beagle named Tungsten; and my mom has a "dog" bathroom (it's decorated with dogs, it's not for dogs). The cloak is finished except for a few stray brushstrokes I need to clean up. The fur and armor are "basecoated" - they will need additional details. I expect the tabard to give me trouble, and to look at Jess Rich's studio paint job for tips. Depending on how quickly I finish the rest of him, I might try some simple freehand on the cloak - and by simple I mean something like a line near the bottom. Any suggestions or critiques are welcome.
  4. Some day in the far distant future, we're going to do a mousling campaign. Right now I have all the mouslings availble from reaper, as well as the LJC minis, so I know how they all scale to each other. But I'm thinking that in this far off campaign we'll need other critters. Darksword makes cool critters (seaturtle pirate!). However, darksword doesn't have anything in their pictures to indicate scale. Aside from one picture that compares the big badger to a fox. Not that helpful when you don't know how big the fox is in the first place. Anyway, does anyone here have some of the Darksword critters and could maybe post pictures with some reaper minis (mouslings would be best) so I can get an idea of how big they are? I'm specifically wanting any of their turtles, the owl mage , possum, guinea pigs, squirrel, or mice. I have a frog, so I don't need those so much. Soooo much cuteness~
  5. I have a new camera and a new set-up for taking pictures. This is a figure from Dark sword, it is larger than the Reaper mouselings, more the size of a normal 28mm human. It is a nice figure and was a joy to paint, even if it was a bit pricey.
  6. This was my entry to the Fantasy Singe category at Gateway (Strategicon) this past weekend. She took 2nd place.
  7. This will be my thread for my entries for the painting competition at Gateway at the end of the month. Those of you who were looking at my consolidated WIP know that I did two entries, a fantasy large and a fantasy single, for Gamex at the end of May. Gateway is part of the same convention circuit as Gamex and I plan on entering the same categories. My single entry is the Female Anti-Paladin with Sword and Shield from Darksword. This was the first miniature I got from them and I cannot wait to start on her. For now she is primed and ready to go. My large entry is Reaper's Frost Giant Jarl, Boerogg Blackrime. He is prepped and ready to as well. As some of you know I was not sure what shape base to use for him and after not being able to locate a hexagon, I went with the oval. I also decided to do a simple rock and snow base.
  8. Darksword just went live on their latest Kickstarter to expand their GRRM Materworks line of miniatures. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/823962857/dark-sword-miniatures-grrm-masterworks-major-line Right now it's $180 ($160 for Earlybirds) for 11 minis (2 of them mounted including Khal Droggo) with all stretch goals included. I'm in for an Early Bird as long as as like most of the stretch goals.
  9. Amalor Myrnnyx, you will be missed! Darksword Elmore Angel (1308)
  10. I don't finish much in the way of "properly" painted miniatures now that I'm quickdipping my way through the unpainted pile, but every once in a while I need a miniature for a game. This is one possible representation for a "The One Ring" character in a game I'm playing. He's a black smith, hence the shield emblem which is supposed to represent a flame. For some reason I always take a fair while to base coat the miniature, set it aside and then rush the finish. This is no different, but luckily I'm usually happy with the result as well. This one is no exception, eventhough I could have worked with it some more.
  11. Hi all, I started out painting up Darksword Miniature's "Hawkman" miniature for Pathfinder play, and thought it would be a good choice for my inaugural WIP for the Reaper forums. (Hopefully the first of many, but no promises) For reasons of character story, I am shooting for a grey and white color scheme for his clothing, with black feathers. I am not really decided on beak color, but I am leaning towards also black to match real-world crows and ravens. One tweak I made to the original miniature was to swap its sword for a curved blade from Reaper's weapon pack II. Aside from slicing off the integral base, the rest of the figure is stock. My camera tends to wash out colors, and the middle picture is the worst offender. I'll see if I can improve things by moving to my photo rig for a better shot some time along the way. The third picture shows things as they stand now. With luck, I can find some time to work on him Monday night too. I am planning NMM steel/silver for the sword blade, and, probably, for the trim on his cloak. I haven't decided what to do with his mantle yet. I kind of like it as a light-grey, different from both the robe and the cloak, but I think it needs some additional tint. I'd welcome any comments or suggestions.
  12. Ok so I'll keep all my work in here at least for the non-Reaper miniatures.
