  1. Well here is my go at LTPK5's Dain Deepaxe. I know the instructions have him as a red head, but I thought I needed the practice at black hair (still think I do). Not so fond of my steel, but I think the gold turned out well enough. I seems that the gloss sealer and matt finish have toned down the highlights a little. I then finished him off with my first attempt at a snow base. I used baking soda, glue, white paint, and water. Without further to-do Dain Deepaxe:
  2. Here is the latest miniature that I finished. Unlike many, I have been quite happy with this one. There are things I could fix for sure, but at times, you just need to done. I am happy with this one, and I don't think I have ever said that with a finished mini.
  3. Been working a little. First up, my first (!) orc: Thought we had him identified as a Gladiator from Ral Partha's Legion Of Death set, but I've since come to think that may not be quite right. Does appear to fit with that set. I'unno. If anyone has further ID'ing info, much appreesh. Is that an okay green? For an orc? Serious question. A Dwarf Clansman that I guess Marauder put out through Citadel. Or something like that. I kind of love this sculpt, in its simplicity. Shield's been swapped out for a plastic replacement, I guess. I thought about trying to free-hand something on it but chickened out. Totally can't draw. Base was in poor shape and I haven't decided what to do with it, yet. May try some fake gravel (I've learned I hate the grass flock, but anyway) Any feedback and advice is extremely appreciated.
  4. The Old Dwarf rubbed his back as he trudged deeper into the dark wood. He had not ventured this deep since he was but a lad, but game had been scarce, and winter was coming. His loyal companion Topaz yelped and started off deeper into the wood. What would they find? Hope you all like this little vignette I've been working on since uh, February I think? I had finished the dwarf and most of the diorama base then, but I was waiting on a suitable hunting dog and I was searching for a good solution for a big tree to put on the mound of earth. I settled on the dog from the companions of the Stonehaven elves kickstarter, and then just bit the bullet, bought some sculpey and tried my hand at sculpting a tree. I think that it came out pretty well for a first try! I obviously still have to clean up the wood base, but I finished everything besides that this evening and wanted to share it with yinz guys and gals. Sadly, my camera is only an iphone from my job, so they're not the best photos. But maybe the Old Dwarf will find a camera for me around the Winter Solstice.
  5. Freshly flocked and on her way to the display case, it's Dannin Deepaxe! A very fun sculpt from Herr Klocke, and one that I almost wish was going to join our party as a PC. But, as NPCs go, I'm sure she'll be happy to see the party since she's all painted up. Tried for some texture on her dress, a la Schubert, and I think I did...OK. It's a good start that helps me understand the idea behind it a little better, anyway. About 5 hours work on her. C&C always welcomed!
  6. Couple of old Grenadier miniatures. These are some of the pieces I stripped, for those familiar with that saga. First up, the Cleric Turning: This is the first piece where I feel like I washed appropriately. I was pretty happy with the details. And then this guy: I was REALLY happy with how he turned out. I felt risky with the yellow hat, lol. But I used a brown wash and got good shadows, and I really amped up the bright-tone highlights--which I'm afraid isn't showing as well in the pictures, which is a bummer. But still. Making progress, I think. Any advice for improving further is still very, very welcome, of course.
  7. While waiting for Wyrmgear to dry from scrubbing the mold release off, I get started on a Dwarf cheerleader I got from a low-profile kickstarter last month. First is pinning her to the resin base, my first exercise in pinning. Then I start with a few light coats of primer. During priming, I discover that she has a tendency to fall over to her left. The mini came with beer steins that could be held in hand, but here it turns into a frothy, refreshing counterweight.
  8. Yeah, he's been kicking around my workbench since December 2013. This is the sixth figure I've completed, and while I see a lot I could improve I'm also very proud of everything I learned while working on him. Now if only one of my gaming group would roll up a dwarven warrior so he could get some table love! 77074 Dain Deepaxe: And a better angle of his axe, just for fun:

    Bones Heroes

    So here are four Bones minis my D&D group picked out for PCs. I have to say I agree that the soft details make Bones less than ideal for PCs and important NPCs. Good for mooks and big monsters, though. Anyways, here they are. I need to get some Testors Dullcoat; my current matte spray is too shiney on Bones. Too bad this figure was discontinued; maybe we'll see it in metal. The details were quite soft on this figure, but it came out OK. I started out painting the cloth on this dwarf in blue, but then saw that was what every version in the gallery had. So purple. This one looks more indigo in person. I think my camera must have some setting to shift away from violet. Need to fix the staff, too.

    Em4 Dwarves.

    I got some plastic bases from em4, for my Happy Seppuku bases. They had some sirt cheap dwarves, so I threw in a bunch. Turned out to be great fun to paint! Detail is sort of soft, but that just makes speed-painting feel better. The dwarfs are not really dynamically posed, but that feels right for me. They are dwarfs, right? Fighting a dragon, with their cousing Mad Angus. I should have gotten more shots of the crossbowers. Oh well. What do you think?
  11. This is the third of the five Bones pirates I did as a quick paint. Since pirates are evil and I already had a drow pirate, I painted him up as a duergar. Underdark pirates FTW.
  12. Well, I finally managed to get some painting done and some pics taken. Only 1 dwarf, 1 halfling, a dragon, and a couple of sci fi models... Still a load more stuff to paint, but it's a start! cheers, Michael
  13. Hi all, I'd like to share some of my work in progress shots of a diorama or vignette I'm calling, "The Old Dwarf and the Dark Wood." I've been taking sporadic photos of my progress along the way (thought not every step because I'm bad at documentation) First up, I'd like to share an in progress picture of the dwarf. You can see at this point the dwarf is pretty near completion. Next up: Photos of the completed dwarf on his holder, a binder clip courtesy of work. Although I think I need to go back in and shade the bindings of his bedroll D: To make this not so image heavy, the next post will be featuring what's going on with the diorama so far.
  14. I thought I'd start a thread of the recent miniatures work I've done. Here's the most recent, my attempts at Kostchtchie the Deathless (the D&D/Pathfinder Demon Lord version, not the Russian mythical figure)
  15. I posted a diorama here a few weeks back, but it was never meant to be permanent. I was finally able to remove them all from the diorama and base them all. They are a team to me now and tried to keep the bases simple and matching. Deathsleet's base took me a lot longer and I'm pretty happy with it. Diorama link here if you are interested. I hope you enjoy.
  16. Here we go with another installment of my Classic Forgotten Realms Characters from the Ral Partha Set. I painted him sometime last year, not sure when. I didn't keep with the color scheme from the book cover. Enjoy you viewing. Here are some links to previous characters I've finished from the set. [Alais] [Elminster]

    Hi. steam dwarf â„–1. scale 22mm polymer clay material ( to be continued )
  18. I painted up Horace Action Jackson (Bones 80023) up really quick (2 hours) as something different from Teronus the dragon. The NMM on the gun is the first time I have succesfully done steel NMM, yay. The white shirt was done to test the recipe for white (Reaper MSP Cloudy Gray, Misty Grey, Pure White) from paintdawg in this thread http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/52298-reapers-anima-tactics-and-one-ancient-ral-partha/ . I think it came out very nice, and will definitely use that recipe again. Maybe there are some Unicorns in my future. Fulumbar (Bones 77011) was started at the painting faces class at GenCon with Lyn Stahl (Thanks Lyn, I really enjoyed your class!). I finished him a while ago, but I hadn't gotten my photo setup out until now. Michelle (Bones 77022) is the one I like the least out of this bunch, the casting was a little flat in places, so I didn't spend a lot of time on her. At least she is fine for table-top, which is where most all my minis will end up. The picture actually looks better than the figure does in real life. That is a first. And last I will show off some mini's I painted 20+ years ago using Testors enamel. I am pretty sure all six are from Grenadiers Julie Guthrie lines:
  19. I realised on Friday that it had been over a year since I last painted a figure... so I had a go at painting one of my Dwarf sculpts from our first Oathsworn Kickstarter yesterday. I'm not a very good painter (much prefer sculpting!) but I'm happy with how he's ended up. Still can't take a decent photo though! cheers Michael
  20. This is my first show off post to the site so go easy lol. Nothing special just thought I would put it up to see what people think. Suggestions or tips are encouraged.
  21. Lot of heart and bits of my soul went into this. I took about a hundred pics, in a hundred different ways and pulled a handful of my favorites. They are all Reaper minis and the Dragon is Deathsleet. I wanted a Water Dragon with an excuse to try some water effect stuff for the 1st time. Not sure how long that wall of water spell will hold him back, but it doesn't look like Meriseil is waiting to find out. I hope you enjoy :)
  22. Here, for your amusement is my very first WIP thread. The plan here is to show 77162: Yephima, Female Cloud Giant having just put down a dwarf intruder. I figure she needs something to justify that smug look on her face. I plan to pose her with her victim (Stonehaven's Unconscious Dwarf SHD20) underneath that massive club of hers. In order to do this, I will need to cut her club away from the rest of the model. The leaves me with two surfaces (one on the club and one on the loincloth) with no detail. The loincloth surface isn't a big deal; I'll simply remove a small protrusion where the club attached, smooth it out and it will look like part of the garment. The club surface on the other hand will be a bit trickier since it's very detailed. After a bit of brainstorming with Minicannuck, I've come up with a solution. Using some Instamold, I created a mold of the good side of the club's head and made a replica using green stuff. This was my first attempt at using instamold and it didn't work out quite the way I'd hoped. It seems that the mold warped a bit while it cooled resulting in a fairly odd-looking club head. My second attempt worked out much better. This time, I left the club in the mold until it had completely cooled. As you can see, the replica on the left looks much better than the original (pictured again on the right) The next step will be to cut away part of the club head and replace it with part of the green stuff replica. More to come as progress is made. Comments and constructive criticism are always welcome.
  23. I just got back from taking a brief hiatus. It actually lifted last week after I decided to repaint my level 32 Warblade and a friend commissioned me to paint his character (he tried to pay me... I refused. I hate taking money from friends :) They always get FREE commissions! :D My specialty! I just like seeing them happy :D) Anyway, the first is Freja Fangbreaker (the bone version). This is the 2nd time I've painted this figure; the other being 3-4 years ago. She has an enlarge insert with both an earth magnet in the base itself and in the miniature base. I've been doing the enlarge inserts for a few years now; so much more appealing to the eye than just black bases! Both this and the commission were speed paints.. enjoy! Now here is Broderick Alt Pose, Crusaders Captain. He's my first serious attempt at NMM. It's not great, but pretty good for a first time, I think. I know that I need deeper transitions; but again I had a time crunch. My friend was very particular on the colors and pretty much everything for him. Here he is with his enlarge insert (he's a 32 barbarian warblade). It was pretty nice to dip my toes in again....
  24. Two Reaper Bones I painted recently for gaming. They're just tabletop jobs, but they were fun to paint! This one has an insert base for when the D&D character is enlarged.
