  1. I had mentioned in a previous post asking if people had a specific process or steps they used when painting models. One of the themes I noticed from several was working from the smallest part out, and even from the face out. It was mentioned that it makes the model more "alive" to start with the face. So, today I did just that. I have to say, I feel like I know where I am going now with this piece. Almost like the little guy is talking to me. I am painting this one as a character for my D&D game, and seeing his face is helping me visualize more easily where I want the finished product to be. Faenon Bloodmane - WIP One of the effects I am going to attempt with this model is glowing. I have the eyes solid green, with pale green iris. Its hard to see in this picture, but the end result is going to be the various runes glowing similar green, as if he is casting a spell. After a quick hit with a clear coat, I am going to try to wash in some lighter green around the eyes to give it a cascade effect. Any suggestions would be helpful! Thanks! CAH
  2. My obsession with Warlord dwarves continues with Jason Wiebe's Kragmarr Guard. Like this guy a lot, pretty simple and dwarfy. Kept with my usual dwarf-soldier-type blue. Got a little carried away with the shield, heh, but figured I might as well have some fun. Thanks for looking!
  3. Here is one of the crossbowmen for my Warband. He was a lot of fun to paint. This was the first one I tried using sealers in between washes/layers. I am really happy with how he came out. Bloodmane Crossbowman - (Yet to be named) CAH
  4. Figure: Freja Fangbreaker, Dwarf Sergeant (SKU #14085) Manufacturer: Reaper Material: Metal Since I started working on this one last night, I figured I might as well go ahead and post a WIP thread. This is going to be a PC for one of my D&D players. He sent me a pic of a female dwarf cleric for inspiration. I went looking in Reaper's store and ended up with Freja. Inspiration picture Conversion weapon swap of axe head for hammer and modification of shield are required to fulfill the vision. Hammer was pinned and glued on. The shield, I had to work on a bit harder. It required me snipping off the metal studs on her original shield, filing them down to be smooth, then I worked on the back of the shield and snipped off the raised metal edges and filed them down smooth. After all this, I used ProCreate epoxy putty and super glue to affix a piece of plasticard that I cut to the appropriate size and shape over the shield in her left hand. Left it all to cure overnight and tonight I'll get her primed up and see about filling any gaps that need to be fixed (if there are any). Current WIP pics!
  5. Meet Bruendor Bloodmane. He will be leading my first warband for FrostGrave. This was also my first experience with actual washes and inks. Not too bad for my first go. **EDIT** Pic is fuzzy. I will try to upload a new one when I get home. Close up of the forehead for the rune. CAH
  6. I think these are what's next for me to practice on. Only way to get better is to keep putting paint to mini!
  7. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2087444096/stonehaven-peacekeepers-oath That was fast! It looks like Stonehaven is finally Kickstarting their oft-threatened wargame, including options for all their previously released miniatures!
  8. Next up, my first non-monstrous Bones attempt: Jason Wiebe's Khael Stonekindle. He was part of my fantabulous Secret Sophie haul from LittleBluberry. Thanks, LB! I was so-so level of happy with him, in the end. I attached him to a resin base I got from a local dude who puts out bases and the like under the name "Models and Minis." It wasn't completely perfect, but I thought it made a cool and very fitting base for him. Imagine it'd've been a lot easier, actually, with a mini without a robe hanging down, huh. Thanks for looking!
  9. Hi, I progressed a bit through my pile of Bones and painted Logrim the Dwarf Captain. Clad in full armour, he was surprisingly quick to paint to a basic tabletop quality. It was just a matter of having a nice basecoat in gold, burnish it and then pick some details out. The blue glow on the tip of the sword was my first try at this effect. And he is ready to battle any critter on his way... Even the slimy Chthon.
  10. Bjorn the Hunter, a 70mm Dwarf from Basicks is my first not-gaming scale mini. I'll be painting him up for the 54mm Challenge. He's mostly cleaned up, and I've slapped a few pieces together, to see how far I can go before I need to start putting paint on him. He came in 6 pieces: base, body, 2 arms, rifle, and cloak. His cloak covers a LOT of the detail on his back, so I think it will get painted separate. EDIT: Edited because autocorrupt. EDIT v2.0: Edited multiple times because autocorrupt.
  11. Another one done during the paint binge, this is an old Grenadier Dwarf cleric. He's kinda small by today's standards; he could be a Gnome, I guess. I tried a new technique with him; zenithal highlighting. I also used primarily inks to 'paint' him. I'm not entirely sure that I did it right, what do you think?
  12. So a Bugbear, a Monk, and an Executioner walk into a tavern...
  13. Ok so I am gonna post this diorama even though I still need to add things like body parts. Hope you like it, it was my first big piece and way tougher than I expected please critique away
  14. My friends and I started up a new 5E campaign while one of my players in my Rise of the Runelords game is temporarily out of commission. While we were playing, I dug through my pile of miniatures and found some that were appropriate for other players (I based my character on a mini I had already painted). The first of the two to finish up is the dwarven cleric. I started this guy last weekend and finished him at NEMPA yesterday. He is something of a fop, and also has a trait "impeccable hair". I purposely left the gloss coat on his hair and metallic parts to represent this, but it does interfere with a pictures a bit. I kicked this guy out quickly and had fun doing so, I think because there was no real pressure on me - the other player would be happy no matter what I produced.
  15. Well, I've not been as active a painter as I would have liked, but I've managed to get two pieces done in March. The first, Grimm Grayrune, dwarf priest. I love this sculpt, it is so perfect for the subject. I removed his broccoli base, and mounted him on a Secret Weapons resin base which had some mystical runes carved in it. Seemed appropriate. I am not satisfied with the OSL effect I was going for from the runes, making them look to be glowing, but I am not displeased either. I really am happy with how the rest came out, though I still need to work more on my blending. And then there is this Stonehaven Grippli archer. Wow is he small. I had a lot of fun with this guy, but he's not the easiest thing to paint by any stretch. Still, I had almost as much fun making his tree. As always comments and constructive criticism eagerly accepted.
  16. My first Hasslefree miniature, Benn. Sculpted by Kev White. I saw this guy and immediately feel in love. Was a very fun mini to paint, and I was happy with how he came out. Another likely to be based later and left sitting on a white tab. Me no bueno. Thanks for looking. Feel free to, you know, stuff.
  17. Safe to say this is the first dwarf butt I ever painted. One can only wonder about his association with rats. S&M Dwarf?
  18. Ok, I was super Happy I got my order from Red Box Games so I could possible get it painted up for RCon. Then in my haste to get started with this figure I tried to clip off the tab. I say 'tried' because I accidentily clipped the front of her dress. (Sorry Tre`) So I then tried to use some ?grey stuff? to fix my mistake. Here is the result.
  19. Alright! Here he is! It's mini #2 for this year... Yup, #2! If I get any faster, I'll blow my chance at last place in the number of minis completed for the year! This piece was assembled for a friend of mine who doesn't have a game piece for when we play Munchkin or whatever. He does now, and I think he came out pretty well for a table top piece. I'm pretty satisfied, although I apparently had some issues with outgassing. I'm guessing the thin super glue that was used to mount the debris on the bottom wasn't quite dry when I put him in the display case. As a result, I had a slight cloudy area where he was sitting, and the coin has taken on a frosty looking patina. I suppose it works, but from now on, everyone's staying OUTSIDE of the display case overnight, just in case. Okay! Here's what I tried to work on with this piece: 1. Freehand - I attempted a plaidish pattern on his bedroll. It gave me fits. I do believe that I will have fits with freehand the rest of the year as it's one of the main things I plan on working on. I also attempted a bit on his lower tabard (?), but I ended shading it down to make it look worn as I couldn't quite get it right. At any rate, I'm working towards getting better in this area. 2. The Coin Base - I'm trying to expand my basing experience. I really enjoy basing and got this idea from Massive Voodoo and decided to try it. Unfortunately the coin got the weird patina, which I think works, but I would've preferred to have it "prettier." Also, coins are hard to drill through.... at least this one was! Willen was kind enough to do some research on the origin of the coin, which can be read in the WIP of this piece. 3. The Trap - Will Harsk notice the spikes before it's too late? Will he make his saving throw? Who knows! At any rate, the trap was a happy accident. The bricks I used were strangely shaped bricks from Secret Weapon that I've had for a while. They looked great around the coin as they're curved, but don't work well at all for making a solid form radiating out from the coin. I played with different configurations, until I found a pattern I liked with squarish spaces between them. It looked like a perfect pressure plate booby trap opportunity, so I drilled (used an awl really) holes in the spaces and stuck toothpick points through them. Instant spike trap! The rest of the thing is made up of a wooden checker, matte board, a cork to glue the board to, and milliput to make up the earthen base. Of course there's flock (which is still shedding, according to the pics) and Army Painter plants for fun! The underside of the platform is potting soil or whatever it was the kids brought home in those plant projects that never seem to sprout... Anyhoo, here's Harsk, in all his rangering glory: He was fun to paint, and I hop Toph enjoys him! Please leave C&C and let me know what you think. I may drag him along to ReaperCon if Toph will let me. Now I can finally move on to the Spring Exchange and a new diorama for ReaperCon. Hope to see y'all there! -K P.S.: NO, I did not purposefully ruin the plant projects. They'd been sitting around for a year or so before I even used some of the soil. LOL!
  20. Used as the male counterpart in my Hero Quest project. :)
  21. Brynjar Thorir from Red Box Games. Another atempt to cure my "tre-manor-indimitating-sculpts"-phobia. I'm trying to finally cure it this year. I'm not sold on my coloring but overall I'm satisfied with the result.
  22. These are my February Resolution Challenge figures. I solemnly swear I will find better info on them and get the thread tagged and titled properly on later edits (E2A: nearly there). Last minute, last day, 'what is sitting around on the paint bench that I could finish up?' figures, all of them. So, anyway... ...A mummy, a golem, an archer and a dwarf walk into a bar. 77144: Mummy: He is from Bones II. Slathered in Grey Liner. Wet brushed with a mixture of clay brown leather "Custom Color" and "Ginger Cookie" (which does not look ginger at all) then washed with some much thinned "Brown Liner". 2777: Earth Elemental: This guy (turns out he was not a golem) has been sitting around with only a coat of some brownish spray primer for the longest time. I painted Custom Color mystery brown, Ginger Cookie, and Brown Liner on him until he looked sorta finished. He will need something done to the rest of his base at some point, not sure what. Plastic Archer: This is Miles. A never quite finished GW archer (until the 28th of Feb). 3099: Klaus Copperthumb Dwarf Thief: Klaus is a Reaper figure but he did not turn up using either thief+cloak+dagger OR dwarf+cloak+dagger in the store search. Bit of a disappointment that. I should have tried dwarf+thief+cloak, that would have worked. He was mostly done but needed some touch up where paint had worn away from handling and some extra shading. I don't think I have his cousins Quimby or Lydia.
  23. Female dwarves are hard to find. Especially in the good quality that Reaper has made. This is my female and male version of the Hero Quest dwarf:
  24. I found these guys via the daily overstock markdown via a certain online retailer. Absolutely loved the looks of them. Was not disappointed. They're really simple and I think it's fair to say not as highly detailed as a lot of stuff, but they totally feed my ongoing dwarf addiction. As best I can tell, they're from RAFM, a line called "Death in the Dark" per the Lost Minis wiki. I regrettably do not know the sculptor--I'd like to, so if you know let's hear. ETA: sculpted by Bob Murch. Many thanks to Darsc for that info. Thanks for looking!
  25. Well, on the heels of Ghengis Con, like many, I was excited to paint even more. So a couple days ago I started on my first bust, The Grudge by Jason Wiebe (who I got to chat with again at Ghengis Con again this year). So far, I am quite happy with it. It is odd being in a place where you are often happy with your work now. Of course I lots to improve like we all do, but being happy with something I painted and not finding just flaws is a nice thing. Last night, I set down to pain the basecoast of the studded armor (or that is what I decided it was going to be), and pretty much finished it (studs are just baseboated).
