  1. When I was working on other figures and had some colours spare I would paint theses. The phots aren't the best, even thought they looked good on the phone (grumble, grumble). I have tried to make the bases look as if they were on a carpet. This was a quick job and mostly involved stippling some titanium buff and raw umber together. Then just added some patterns and colour. I worked on the figures seperate from the chairs. This caused some annoyances when I rubbed off some paint, but I did allow me a better painting overall. The Flute and the Piano
  2. A return to the Weird West setting! These ladies are wonderful townsfolk, or suitable for magic-users or fancy rogues. The young lady in orange is from Eureka (one of their Hyde Park Hypostyle figures if memory serves), while the ones in yellow and pink are from Reaper's Victorians (80068. The Victorian gentleman is still in progress, on the back burner). More angles, but the sun was not quite right And a guest! 80065, the Physician.
  3. Eureka has a line of "Boiler Suit Apes." In this line, there is a collection of cosmonaut APES IN SPACE. What, am I made of stone?! Of course I had to get them. Uplifted apes are often used in the spacefuture as cheap, durable labor during the terraforming process--under the watchful eye of the Earth government, of course. Many work with bioengineered soil-tilling arthropods. Here are some scenes of a few of them overseeing the cultivation of a Neptunian moon. The gourdfruit trees are already coming along nicely. There are some rumors that the Space Apes have an underground separatist
  4. Since I like painting when it is dark outside I normally don't take photos, to combat this and get into the habit I am starting this thread. I will post some of my recent work, including things that are 95% done and are only missing a base. Some of the photos may not be the best, but they should suffice. Any advice and criticism is welcome. So let us get started: An old Pandora Metal starter set from Malifaux (and some Victoria Miniatures): The skin for the baby was done using Mars Violet (PR101), Nickel Titanate Yellow (PY53) and Titanium White (PW6). I may have also used T
  5. Eureka has a two-pack of figures in their Pax Limpopo line called "Hench and Coach," and they are the most corpulent double-chinned British spherical bastards imaginable; Dickensian caricatures after the style of Nast or Tenniel. I had to have them. Didn't bother affixing the coachwhips. They are about halfling-sized in 32mm scale, and walrus-like giants in 15mm scale. You should be able to hear a bassoon-and-tuba soundtrack when looking at them. I'd also painted up some minis from Artizan's "Thrilling Tales" line: Miss Greentree, Private Campbell, and Tankie Bob. Each of them is full of p
  6. Realized my collection had some major lacunae in world cultures, and needed more pre-modern Mesoamericans! So I got these Aztec feather suit warriors from Eureka. Tried using mostly GW contrasts on them; can report that the red and blue work AMAZING. You can tell the fella in green is in charge, both by the high-status turquoise cloth and by the rad shield. I had fun with these. Gender diversity is important, so I also picked up Caroline here from Antediluvian Minis' Lost World line. She is shown with a mini-Couatl from the Familiars 2 set (77196). More pix in the spoilers box.
  7. Look at that title. Are you made of stone? You want to see exactly that thing, and brother, sister or other, THAT IS WHAT WE GOT HERE. Painted mostly with GW contrast, reaper sample green, and some craft-store metallics. My favorite detail: the comparatively dainty holster for a big ol' drum-fed gun. Here's the big fella with the rest of General Jombi's Guerilla Troops (also from Eureka, posted elsewhere): And because I already had the camera out, here's All the Apes I Got.
  8. These maginificent minis were donated by @malefactus to add to my Lost World Project. WIP Here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=109 Eureka Miniatures ( Pond Wars Range). I painted the Frog riders as Poison Dart Frogs and the Toad mounts as Bombina Orientalis ( Chinese Firebelly Toads). I had both as pets in my youth. Here is the unit, and in the latter pics on my Jungle Photobackdrop Board.
  9. A lovely sculpt from Bombshell, Mi-Sher is billed as a Mongolian princess. I had a lot of fun with her dress. This post seems as good as any for a pair of Chinese Pirates I got years ago from Eureka. They both have a pudao or glaive. They were among my first forays into freehand back in the day--the one with the hat has a silver loong dragon on his back, and the hatless one, a crane.
  10. It's about that time of year! Painted a while back, but didn't photograph until recently. The Horned Hunter, Bones version. 89033. A magnificent Fey Lord of the Wild Hunt. A couple of Eureka Miniatures fantasy-line Fauns that look suitable for the Horned Hunter's henchfey. The beautiful and insectile Fairy, 14469. Remember, the Fey may LOOK human, but they don't think like people at ALL. And her little brother, the Feral Child faerie from Familiars 2, 77196. This guy gives off an air of tiny menace and unpredictability. Maybe he'll tr
  11. I promised "other, different Space Apes," and now it is time to deliver. These are from Eureka's Boiler Suit Apes line, and I wish they would cast more (many things are out of stock and have been for some time.) A few uplifted apes and monkeys have gone rogue! They issued a manifesto calling for simian liberty and a small area of sovereign territory in a rainforest, to be run by the apes themselves (don't say it) as an (don't say it!) agrarian representative democracy. The separatists are led by the mighty and charismatic silverback, General Jumbi. He is both their military and administ
  12. Black Cat Bases has a "Mr. Big" in their civilians/townsfolk line, and I thought he'd do fine as John Barlow, businessman, impresario, patron of the arts, and nightclub owner. Our investigative journalist in the peach dress, and the newsy hanging about, are again from Murch's Pulp News Hounds. The young flapper in the peacock ensemble is from Eureka. She was actually one of the first minis I tried freehanding! You can tell Mr. Barlow's patience with Miss Imelda's questions (regarding how, exactly, his new venture is being funded) is running short.
  13. More class-conscious minis! Featuring a pair of Artizan's Domestic Servants, Reeves and Maisy; Artizan's Remy as the long-suffering waiter and Signor Ferrari as a Titan of Industry, and another of Eureka's 1920's Women as a Bright Young Thing. Remy, unfortunately, had a cat-related fall which gave him an unwanted nose job. The tycoon looks like his paint is abrading; that's an artifact of silver-on-grey pinstriping. Looks good in 3D but did not photograph well at all. TFW you've had about enough of your employer's broccoli: The whole crew
  14. Maybe the butler DID do it! He's got shifty eyes, and with employers like this...plenty of motive. Butler is from Black Cat townsfolk, if memory serves. Lord Snoblaugh there is one of Eureka's Pax Limpopo personalities, Wellyn Shaftesbury. (chaise-longue is also Eureka), and we all know and love 60036, the Visbaronetness.
  15. Just wanted to post some pictures of a few figures I finished up recently in an effort to clear off some of the stuff that's been gathering dust on my paint table, so they'd be ready for the game table. I'm not 100% sure of the identity of each of these figures other than manufacturer. The first is an old Heartbeaker Hobbies and Games sword-woman. The second is a pirate from Eureka The third was some sort of witch or sorceress (I can't exactly remember), from the Deadlands game.
  16. I put a spray varnish coat on the final batch of figures for 2016. This group includes three Bones for the club's ongoing Frostgrave project, two Eureka Dark Ages Archers (a Viking and a Norman) destined for Saga warbands, and a converted Bones Bathalian, who is headed for the stars. That is to say, he's going to be part of my Rogue Stars collection, for Osprey's new generic small group SF game, at least while we figure out if we'll be playing it. Here's to hoping for a better 2017!
  17. This is my first foray into 15mm Sci-Fi, redoing The Worlds In My Head in 15mm so I can fight larger battles with more vehicles. Here's the Nathi. The troopers are by Eureka Miniatures, the vehicles are kitbashed toys, bikes are CAV parts and the walkers are the "Simba" CAV.
  18. this is the entry I worked up for the Open Painting contest at ReaperCon. This is the first time I have entered a competition, and was very pleased that I received a bronze for the effort. The minis are Eureka Minis Jazz Band (the singer is actually, one of the swing dancers from the accompanying set). the backdrop is basswood and corrugated cardboard, and the base is a plaque from Hobby Lobby, the boards were scribed in. It was a very fun piece to paint
