  1. This week I experimented with painting up one of the Pathfinder Goblin Pyros to see how it would look painted up as one of Santa's Elves for my Santa-themed Enchanter warband for Frostgrave. I had planned a while back that I wanted to use Christmas elves to represent the four Thieves I had added to my Santa the Enchanter's warband; and had originally prepped four of the Victory Force Miniatures, Unarmed Christmas Elves to use in this role. Then forum-member Pippin suggested over on my Christmas Eve as Mrs Claus post that I possibly use Goblins to represnt Santa's elves. The idea buzzed around in my head for awhile, as I wasn't totally happy with the Victory Force Elves. I felt they looked a little too Elf-On-The-Shelf modern. So, I thought I'd do this test on the Pathfinder Goblin kind of as a proof-of-concept as to whether using them for Christmas Elves would work. I'm really pleased with how this figure turned out, and I think the idea of using these fellows for Santa's Elves is going to be a winner. Even as I type, I have three more prepped and awaiting painting. As always, C & C welcome.
  2. Hello again everyone. I've been working away at trying to improve my painting. Reaper Bones 89001 Pathfinder Red Dragon This is the model that made me place my first Reaper order and get back into painting. I've started using sand for basing again and I really enjoy the fine texture it gives. I tried using sealer to "save" my work a few times on this model but I never ended up removing my mistakes, instead I just painted over them. I think this has left some of the details a bit gloopy (e.g. the horns). Overall I am pretty happy with it but I would love to hear any comments. Once I know he is done I am going to Dullcote him and then put some gloss on his tongue. RAFM Durnaoth Elf Halberds and Ral Partha 03-209 Elf Standard Bearer I bought these off eBay not really knowing what they would end up looking like. I find the standard bearer looks a little goofy (reminds me of the Planescape Torment character models) but I really like the Halberdiers. They were weird to assemble, as they were molded with their right hands attached to their thighs. They had to be cut off and their arms bent into place. I still feel like there is a little something missing. Again, any feedback would be great. I am planning to get some gloss spray (Krylon maybe?) for these guys and then I will dullcote them. I will test that on the standard bearer first. My fiancee wants to set them up with the dragon somewhere in our apartment. Crucible 91-221 Orc Eagle Knights Another eBay purchase where I had little idea what I would be getting. I was really excited to find out that these are orcs with an Aztec spin. They are almost where I want them but I still have a few things left to do. Let me know what you think. Thank you!
  3. one of the Stonehaven line while we wait for the halflings to show up. this was a character for me in a short lived pathfinder campaign. This is one for more active stonehaven minis and I like the delicate features of the elf here. Enjoy!
  4. Kangaroorex was my partner for the spring exchange. He requested a deep forest autumn theme. I already had a female elven ranger from dark sword miniatures that was a perfect match. Painted the ranger in browns and a green cloak to tie it in with the rest of the scene. Some time ago I got the idea to use ornamental balls for miniature bases. I bought some with a 10cm (4inches) diameter. Filled the bottom with lightweight modeling clay and sculpted the tree to fit in the ball. Added mushrooms to add to the autumn feel. The owl and the mouse are from Busch (1153 HO Small animals set) And made a custom base out of plastic card to put the ball in. I am happy how it turned out in the end.. Taking nice pictures of the shining ball is not easy, so I added some pictures without the ball.
  5. Painted this guy up to be my hubby's new illusionist character. I had a love/hate thing going with him (Seltyiel not my hubby) for the past couple of days. He has so many little fiddly bits and it was hard to tell what some things were. Even looking at painted examples in the Inspiration Gallery didn't always work so I guessed at a few things. I am also not a huge fan of the spell effect thingie. There are some things I am super proud of and some....not so much. He is for playing with though so I tried not to stress too much about the mistakes. So, here he is just in time for tomorrow's game, Seltyiel who from now on will be known as Finagus the Illusionist who is also an archaeologist.
  6. So, for my Frostgrave chronomancer warband (which I featured in the WIP thread), I decided I wanted an Egyptian warrior and a Mongolian warrior. However, I couldn't find such figures just readily available and didn't want to wait for shipping. Instead, I got a 3 pack of Reaper Bones skeletal spearmen and made one into the Egyptian. For the Mongolian archer, I used a mini I have had for years that I don't think is actually supposed to be Legolas, but really looks like that sort of elven idea. A decent amount of Green Stuff and paint were involved :=) C&C always welcome!
  7. So, the story behind this character plays on the stereotype of elves as forest dwelling archers. This young gal's elven family decided to move into a town and are making their living as farmers. However, young Gwenevieve here takes great pride in her elven heritage and sneaks off when she's supposed to doing chores to practice with her grandfather's bow. I was going for a simple overalls sort of dress, baggy hand-me-down sleeves from the shirt underneath, and barefoot to convey the peasant status. I also gave her short hair as she was going for function over fashion (much to the chagrin of her poor mother). I'll start throwing paint at her sometime soon (when I sit down with my Halfling shield maiden most likely). I'm a bit disappointed by the quality of the photos, but it's my own fault since I haven't had my wife (the tech support) teach me how to use the digital camera she bought. I can't get it to focus on anything.
  8. This is a PC (oracle, half-elf) from a campaign we finished last November. I altered (made less "poofy") her hair and changed out the top of her staff. Not happy at all with the face but this is the Bones version and it was slightly miscast/wonky. I was quite happy with the gradient on her robes which doesn't show that well here. Table Top quality, but I do take a bit longer on PC models. Phone pics suck, sorry.
  9. So I've had this one finished already for a while but never got him posted. One of the other Stonehaven figures I have, got him painted up and finished. Once again, can't say enough how much I enjoy painting these. They got a bit of heat for being "flat", but that, plus their decent sizes make them relatively simple and enjoyable to paint
  10. This past week I started working on the Dark Elves set from the Bones 1 Kickstarter, and completed the Dark Elf Warrior figure with a simple tabletop paint job. As always C & C welcome. Full painting write-up on my Bones blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2016/02/dark-elf-warrior-figure-198-of-266.html
  11. Looks like I forgot to post this little beauty from the year-end Conga Line of Doom. This is Julie Guthrie's Valloa, Elf Thief, SKU 03566 from Reaper. Something happened to my original set of photos. These were taken after she was varnished and she is a little satin-finished, making it a little harder to see the painted shiny leather effects. I really like this figure.
  12. So, just got the bases finished up on my Stonehaven elves. Out of the five I've been working on, got four of them done and here they are! I'm in a pretty good mood because even though the initial photographed seemingly turned out yellowish and odd, I was able to just hit the Color button on the editing function and they cleared up to very close to their actual photos. I've been painting Ral Partha figures forever and a day, and this was the first time in a while I've moved over to a different brand, and I really enjoyed painting these figures. One of the nice things about these were the size. I'm not going to lie, bigger is easier. I've got another elf I'm working on, still in the WIP, and once I get him done, I'll go back to painting more Partha stuff. But in the meantime, enjoy!
  13. The adventuring party from my Pathfinder campaign: Reaper 14318: Cleric of Ishnar Reaper 02669: Oberon Half-Orc Reaper 89020: Harsk, Iconic Dwarf Ranger Reaper 77049: Arthrand Nightblade, Elf Ranger
  14. Second mini....getting better
  15. Just finished up a commission for a new D&D player at my local shop. I'm not totally comfortable with drow skin and white hair, but I'm fairly happy with how it came out:
  16. Wizard I painted up for the Pathfinder game I'm in. The robes had a base of rich green, brought up with leaf green, warboss green from GW, and finally warboss mixed with some GW flash gitz yellow. The sleeves are palamino gold with agrax earthshade, and then brought up with the flash gitz yellow. Flesh was the Reaper Fair Skin triad with GW reikland fleshshade. Hair was the blond hair triad. The shirt started with ritterlich blue, going up to ultramarine, and finally a highlight with a bit of LED blue mixed in. Pants were done in rainy grey, hit with the agrax earthshade, and then brought up with linen white. Staff was done in walnut brown and then drybrushed intense brown.
  17. This is my first mini ever. Some feedback would be wonderful. Thanks :)
  18. Hey All, I'm finally happy enough with this one to call it finished. This was my first real attempt at blending, and while there is a bit of stepping in some places I think the piece is still better for the attempt. I do wish the surface texture was a bit smoother in some places. Perhaps I need to clean my minis better before starting. All comments and criticism are very welcome.
  19. This week I finished a quick tabletop job on the Female Elf Rogue from the Dragons Don't Share Set (Does she have a name?) I plan to use her in one of my Frostgrave Warbands. C and C welcome.
  20. I recently completed painting the Elquin, High Elf Adventurer figure from the Bones I Kickstarter. I wanted to use him as my Chronomancer wizard for my Frostgrave games, as I felt his outfit was vaguely reminiscent of a French Napoleonic uniform, and would be fitting for a time-traveling wizard. Some of you may remember I recently posted my Sascha Dubois figure, which I had painted as the Chronomancer's Apprentice http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65273-sascha-dubois-chronomancers-apprentice-conversion-80004/?hl=%2Bsascha+%2Bdubois because of her vaguely 18th century looking outfit. I modified the figure, to help bring across the Chronomancer look, by adding a small disc punched from thin cardboard to the top of his staff to make it resemble a sundial. IMG_5674 by cnjpalmer I painted him for tabletop use, so took some shortcuts. I'm pleased with the results, though I wish I had taken the time to get his eyes focused where his hand is pointing, and not glancing off to the side. I was just so thrilled to get them relatively level and even, and both looking in he same direction, that I didn't want to mess with them further. Here's the finished result: IMG_5887 by cnjpalmer And here is the Chronomancer and his Apprentice: IMG_5900 by cnjpalmer
  21. This is Hasslefree Daphos, Twisted Dark Elf Anti-Hero (HFE004) painted up as a High Elf, since there is not that many Elf miniatures with large swords out there. The blue metal is Vallejo Gunmetal Blue with Reaper Steel and Reaper Silver metallic paints.

    Two drows

    Hi I had long break from painting, because i was preparing Festus the leechlord and it is so complicated that i had enought with my hobby... Today i painted two old figures from my friend collection (I dont know manufacturer). I had to sculpt head of the dragon because it was lacking:( and i made bra for one of drows beacause she had very strange breasts. Im happy with drow skintone i think its very underdark. http://imageshack.com/a/img908/9548/eOOxF4.jpg http://imageshack.com/a/img908/9599/bp9W4V.jpg http://imageshack.com/a/img908/6772/SxZsVP.jpg http://imageshack.com/a/img907/6008/yDCP8W.jpg http://imageshack.com/a/img903/9890/vmGiJI.jpg Thanks for watching.
  23. Went through my Bones 1 kickstarter box recently and decided to give this guy some color. I'm thinking of using him as a rogue, hence the dark clothes.
  24. Here is a figure I started right after RCon '15. In my hotel room to kill time. I started the NMM one way, then I decided to try out the Scale75 Gold NMM paints. I think it came OK even after all the gloss and dullcote. Thanks for looking. C&C (and even Critiques) are welcome. PS: I'm beginning to think next year I need to add painting wood details better to my list of goals
