  1. Hi all! First post in quite a while I've been working on a fantasy dwarf I've been sculpting from scratch. I'm shooting for something which could feasibly be cast. I'd gotten to the point that I was positioning his weapon, at which point I realized that there seemed to be too many potential undercuts, particularly around the axe head. I looked at some of Reaper's dwarves which have a similar pose, and I noted that all of them are positioned such that the axe head is well in advance of the hand, which would eliminate the under cut. I tried various attempts at re positioning the
  2. Dear Friends, I wanted to invite you to join me for a new musical adventure, "Dawnstar: Eternity"! The music features cinematic and fantasy stylistics, and this album is the third in the Dawnstar series, which I have been conjuring inspired by astronomy and The Elder Scrolls during the past year. I hope that you may join me on this quest for musical exploration as this new album is inspired also by several art and science disciplines. I am currently running a Kickstarter campaign in hopes to make the production possible, and I hope that you may consider joining this new project and enjoy bein
  3. Seriously people - I have no idea. Who was this lady again? While Sophie was drying I started to paint her and actually made pretty good progress so far. Tried to get back to my former painting style. Not entirely happy, but happy enough to keep going. If anyone knows what the name of this model is - tell me. I'd be grateful enough to tell her that you knew what I didn't.
  4. Hello again. Some time ago, during a game of Bolt Action, one of my friends told us about a campaign he was planning, focused on a fantasy setting using the rules of Frostgrave. As he and some other friends were working on a SciFi setting simultaneously, I thought of the possibility of creating an army that fits both settings – Fantasy and Sci Fi. But what kind of figures would be able to fit into my setting? Looking around, I got aware of the Blood Vestals by Raging Heroes. They seem to be perfect for my army and so I acquired a group of them and also go
  5. Here we go again. If you don’t want to know what led to the whole “Let’s make a present”-stuff, feel free to scroll down to the first picture. I have to admit: I am not world’s best painter. To be honest – I am far away from that. I cannot remember color theory, keep forgetting important steps or read a tutorial just to throw it away ‘cause I cannot imagine how I should turn the advices into actual results. Life is hard … Anyway – it seems that persons in my proximity have caught attention of what I am trying to do and figure that it is actually *good* and from tim
  6. I Like my weird fiction. This promises to be a good, though dude heavy in the announced authors, anthology in that vein. Inspired by TV shows like Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, & Outer Limits. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/test-patterns-a-weird-fiction-anthology-fantasy-horror#/ 3 options: digital, paperback, limited hardcover.
  7. Welcome the living classics! My new project - Mordheim mercenary ogre. Those miniatures from GW golden age are kind of awkward - they are have some real character in it, but the sculpting is really not the top. IMO it still best modern GW 3D-printed dummies, but, well, there are lot of flaws and mistakes, common for newbie sculptors (i walked this path too, so i know how it looks). Well, that where Tamiya putty comes forward and fixes this. As you can see, i used some Tamiya putty on a grounded and partially painted model. Yes, this is as cool as it is! I think some minor work on his face will
  8. This character comes in two versions. I already painted the nice one. This is her evil, medusa headed version. I also experimented with very pale skin, using Spectral White and Lavender. That mop in her right hand is the wig that the other model wears to cover her snakes. Link to NSFW image.
  9. Having finished up my historical Dragoon, I decided to switch gears work on a fantasy project. A while back I'd agreed to help out with the Ouroborus Tales Kickstarter and provide a 'painting journal' describing how I went about painting one of the orcs from that project. The figures arrived a few weeks ago, so I wanted to make sure that was up next on my to-paint list. The official painting journal is only for the project backers, but I can still share work in progress and info online. But the painting journal will have more detailed step by step photos and a more in-depth discussion (sor
  10. I remember that the first Imbrian Arts KS had a lot of issues and delays, but I don't know whether it was eventually sorted out or not so if any previous backers have any info it would be worth speaking up. The minis look good though
  11. These are my players for Chaos, in Blood Bowl. The Minotaur/Ogre and daemonettes, are from GW, and the Warriors are a mix of parts from GW, and Avatars of War.
  12. Howdy all! I'm going to start a Mouse Guard group for kids (around 5 to 7-ish years old) soon. I have the mouseling minis for the mice themselves, but I need minis for a wide variety of NPCs and enemies. This is the tentative list I've come up with, based on the core book and the size chart that I attached. I'd like to stay within Bones, but I'm totally okay with spreading out into different Reaper brands. If you folks have any suggestions, it would be much appreciated. I'm mostly looking for miniatures that fit the size categories and look similar to the creature intended (i.e., t
  13. I've started working on a classic Chaos sorcerer (variously known as Hutk'Nile, Hutk'Nke or Huth'Nke the plague priest) for a painting challenge at the local Warhammer shop. Basic challenge, paint a single GW character or infantry mini by April 1st and customers will vote for the best in store. I don't think there's even any kind of prize involved, but it's a good excuse to get something done and flex my painting muscles a bit. So, I started with some zenithal priming using spray cans: Then started on the robes: The base colour is Tausept Ochre, an old Ci
  14. I've had most of Rackham's Cadwallon miniature line for about a decade sitting in a box collecting dust. While they don't seem very amazing now, at the time, there was nothing else like them - exquisitely detailed, 32mm fantasy miniatures with dynamic, interesting poses and a uniquely quasi-medieval/quasi-Victorian aesthetic. If you've ever read Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, these miniatures really epitomized the characters from the Ankh-Morpork subseries (prior to the release of Micro Art Studio's licensed Discworld 28mm line) - somewhat arcane, somewhat advanced, with a dash of the car
  15. FANTASY FOOTBALL - Florence's Knights: Bretonans and Humans by Greebo Games The Bretonans miniatures look good for gaming: knights (one has something precious you could repurpose), town guards, and townsfolk. The Imperial team looks football only.
  16. Finally painted something for myself! He reminds me of the knight from Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade. Thanks for looking!
  17. Caveman Vs Wild: The Big Chill is Flytrap Factorys latest Kickstarter for a range of 28mm white metal miniatures and rule set, it has been funded and has 7 days left of the campaign. In Caveman vs Wild you take the role of a tribal chieftain leading a hunting party of muscle bound Neanderthals packing state of the art hunting utensils in search of prey and supplies in advance of the encroaching winter now firmly gripping the lands. There are a variety of miniatures on offer from the Neanderthals, Pygmy Hunters, Mammoths, Woolly Rhinos, Doom Turkeys and Dire Bears and Squirrel Rats.
  18. Just like 2015, I realized the end of Orctober was quickly approaching, and I hadn't painted a single Orc! I had to remedy that, but I went through the box of "primed and ready" and found the Orcs...lacking. I had to build a few, and these were the results of those most near completion already. First, we have a group shot: "C'mon, boyz, dance like ya mean it! Show the crowd what they came here fer!" Some solo shots of the notorious Kap'n Kee-Runch, a Freeboota of little note. He's assembled from the Tankbusta Nob, arms from the plastic Nob box, and a pirate Ork head from Spellcrow.
  19. I found some Army Men terrain at my local thrift shop... How It's Made
  20. This bust arrived on my doorstep the other week, so I decided to take a break from the orc I've been doing to paint a bit on this new piece instead. The figure is Count Melenth from Polaris Minor. The bust is roughly 150-200mm scale. I didn't have a lot of direction with this guy other than the fact that he looks evil. To make things a bit more interesting, I decided to paint some OSL on him. I shifted the primary light source from directly above him to above him and to his left. This casts the right side of his face in shadow, so I added a secondary light source (with a blue tint) be
  21. Looks like you will see the process from the middle, but i think it`s not a problem. As you can see, i have added some nice butt to her. That idea was around for some long, as i wanted to sculpt the legs for Boudicca, but decided not to do this (yeagh, if i do so, then i will finish whole series in a thousand years!) Anyway, i think that THIS WAY Lagertha is just good enough. Also, the detailed article about Tamiya putty on its way. See ya!
  22. Made a coven throne from the start collecting set. Now it just needs basing.: WIP pics:
  23. A friend of mine, Chris Stadler, is planning on running the new incarnation of Warhammer Quest, "The Silver Tower," at the Necronomicon convention this October (Tampa, Florida -- Oct 28-30 -- http://www.stonehill.org/necro.htm). To help out, I have been painting up two sets of the monsters, plus the heroes, and the "Mighty Heroes" expansion. (Why two sets of monsters? Because the game is normally meant for 4 players, but it would be nice to accommodate up to 6. That, and with things like Pink Horrors who split into two Blue Horrors when you squash them, it's nice to have a few extra minis
  24. So while I'm currently running a game already, I've been jonesing to create a new setting. I don't know if it's because my current game is edging on the two-year mark (!) and that part of my brain is just getting antsy, or if it's because I'm afraid for the possible TPK in a few weeks (my PCs are hell bent on fighting a CR25 dragon at level 12), but whatever the case, I've been slowly chipping away at a new setting for my next game. Yesterday I began work on the map! For reference, the scale is 6 miles to a hex. So this is a pretty expansive area.
  25. I've been skipping between projects lately. For a while now I've had the urge to work on another fantasy piece (I usually paint historicals) and finally decided to take on one of the orc pirates from the Black Sailors kickstarter. A few months back I painted a dwarf pirate from M Proyec (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65914-dwarf-pirate/) so I may end up combining these two into a scene together. That may be getting a bit ahead of myself, first let's get this one painted and then I'll decide what to do with it! I've seen a couple painted versions of this figure online and
