  1. So I'm painting up some of the Bones II Mouslings to be used as ship's crew and NPCs in a fairly weird game. These aren't all of them. There's also a mouse king and queen (with pointy hat with veil), a samurai, and a classic wizard, all nice but not quite for my purposes. To be honest, I have mixed feelings about the buxom little "girl" mice. I prefer to think of all Mouslings as something you'd have to be a mouse to tell the difference, like in real life. But gosh, they are cute. At the moment I am referencing real mice for coloring. One Mousling is going to be black, one white, and four a kind of mousy brown. There will probably be some variation on this. Here the six I'm doing are, cleaned up and washed with Reaper's Brown Liner, and a bit of paint added to the white mouse. Here the basic colors of the fur are blocked in and I've painted their tails and ears pink. Black mice seem to have a slightly darker pink, but on the whole all mice seem to have delicate pink tails and ears. Real mice have tiny, pink, handlike feet, while the Mouslings have more teddybear-like paws. I am compromising by painting their fingers and toes pink.
  2. Here my mouseling I refer to as The Red Rogue (aka Mouseling Assassin). I felt the idea that this is a rascal not an assassin. So I went with a darker red that would never really be able to hide in shadows well, because he never really wants to hide. I had this guy finished for several months, except for the blade. I finally just decided to suck it up and finish this little guy tonight. The photo's are not the best, I think I'll spend some more time tommorrow to get some better shots. Now the Red Rogue: Feel free to give any C&C you feel inspired to post.
  3. I just finished up on this one, I did it as a small commission and favor for one of my D&D buddies who will use this particular figure for his Tuesday night games. Slight modification with a weapon head swap from the original earth breaker to the axe head. Painted it up in about 5-6 hours today, I call it table top+ as there are some things on here beyond a normal tabletop job and I wanted to get it done fairly quickly. Name: Shoanti Barbarian Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures SKU: 60115 Sculpted by: Gene Van Horne Material: Metal WIP Thread C&C are welcomed and appreciated! His face close-up, it's hideous!
  4. Today, I'm going to try to get this guy painted up. I have the entire day/evening to do so and I need to get it done before Saturday so I can give it to one of my D&D buddies who is going to use it as a PC in another game (a small commission and I'm giving him a discount as a friend). He's requested it be a bit above tabletop with a weapon swap (so Tabletop+ is what I'm going for). I want to try to get it painted all up in 4-5 hours. Name: Shoanti Barbarian Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures SKU: 60115 Sculpted by: Gene Van Horne I've already got him on his base, primed up, and weapon converted over from his big Earth Breaker to a big 2-handed Axe. I already have about 30-45 minutes into him for the prepping, weapon swap, priming, and basing. Images are pretty big, so I'm spoilering them. I'm going to quickly prime the base and let it dry while I grab some lunch, then I'm going to get to work on him in ernest.
  5. I love this miniature of a Russian Sniper sculpted by Gene Van Horne. I had it on my To Paint very soon list since I bought her, finally got around to finishing her up. I did not attempt to make the uniform historically accurate. Talking real history, in 1943, Russia had 2000 female snipers. The most famous of them was Liudmyla Mykhailivna Pavlychenko (July 12, 1916 – October 10, 1974). Credited with 309 kills, she is regarded as the most successful female sniper in history.

  7. My harrower from Pathfinder. I like the sculpt and would love to do it again when I can do it more justice. For now I practiced Freehand on the cards. They don't look great,but I'm happy to have practiced it.
  8. Hey there all, This is my first time painting a miniature; I have always wanted to do it and just never did. So finally a group of my friends and I set up a game of Pathfinder and I needed a mini for my character. This presented the perfect opportunity for me to try my had at painting a miniature. I tried out a few different techniques, layering, drybrushing, oil wash and like the final product. Any constructive criticisms would be appreciated. Cheers all, Will
  9. A while ago I bought Sarah the Seeress to represent one of the PCs in a D&D game I'm in. So far I've painted minis to represent every other PC in the game and our poor cleric has been using the only unpainted mini. This needs to be rectified. The requirements are that the character is blonde with green eyes, reasonably wealthy and needs to be wearing clerical robes that are red with black accents. I've got a good start on the face & hair and I've base coated the clothing. Now come the tricky elements, in particular how do I make that lace trim look right in black? Normally I'd paint it grey and then highlight it with white to make white lace, but I'm really not sure how to accomplish that with black. I feel like if I painted it a dark black and then tried to highlight with charcoal it would not look quite right. Any suggestions??
  10. It felt like painting something out of my childhood with this (I'll confess to being really into the whole Drow thing for a while for the very, very obvious reason): This was my second Bones piece (I painted one of the IMEF guys for my brother, as he thinks it's cool I'm painting and is supporting my whimsy and wanted some space marines as he's a huge Mass Effect fan; still have another to do). It really seems to paint differently than the metal, but maybe I'm just imagining it. I'm following the general guidelines I see for them, but anyway. Could NOT find one of these painted to give me ideas, and I kind of had a hard time telling where her top ended, neckline-wise. So did some ballparking there. Turned out purpler than I'd've liked, maybe--I want to work on mixing a grayer shade for the base coast before I do any more dark elves (I have the male arachnid, the queen, some others. Yay)--but I was kind of happy wth my highlights. Still working to brighter brighter brighter them. But I had a lot of fun. And it totally creeps my wife out. So there's that. As always, advice for improving, her or especially in general, is totally appreciated.
  11. So yes, I have actually been painting stuff, even though I haven't been good about updating my WIP. Here's my latest. Comments and critiques eagerly desired. Anything to get better is a good thing, even if it means pointing out everything I did wrong.
  12. I need a better photo set up, but until I can take pictures under better lighting conditions these will do
  13. Happy birthday, o accomplished sculptor!
  14. Well, here's a character that I painted from Reaper (for a client). Overall, I was rather pleased with how he turned out.
