  1. I wasn't sure where to put this. I'm organizing my pictures of the minis I painted this year for the eventual year's end round-up come next January. Meanwhile, I put together a graphic of all the halflings and gnomes I painted for the paint-a-Bones-halfling-or-gnome challenge last January (and a few stragglers in February). I don't remember what the challenge was actually called, sorry. But it was the first and so far the only painting challenge I've tried. There are a few Reaper metal figures here too. Anyhow, I'm rather pleased with how they came out, particularly given the short (for me) deadline.
  2. I actually have two copies of this mini. I converted the metal one to be holding a giant wrench. One of these days I'll finish her painjob and share her too. Bones Cassie needed to be used as an NPC so she got the complete tabletop treatment. Personally I am very happy with her blue lipstick; my wife thought it didn't suit her.
  3. Clearing my 'Shelf of Shame' of some half-finished stuff:- Stonehavens Priestess and Brawler Gnomes. Nothing special with these two, apart from the Priestess being a partially successful attempt at doing blonde hair that was different from my usual 'dirty blonde', but I think I did a decent job on them. Comments and criticisms are, as always, most appreciated.
  4. After a TPK, new characters were needed. I already had my backup character painted but needed to get the mister's. This is one of the lovely miniatures from Bones II. I love how something I've seen in pictures so many times, and have sitting on a shelf, you just don't realize how cool it is until you get some paint on it. Third miniature painted for the month, so one more to go to hit the challenge.
  5. OK here is another bones I did recently. I wanted it done for a high level game we were playing but never finished it in time. I have seen some of the others on here that have been done and borrowed from a couple. Of course I am not up to there level of detail as I am just getting back into painting. Not saying I will get as good, but practice does help. Also I need better mags to see. It's Strange that the camera on my tablet here picks up so much more detail then I can see with my eyes with what gear I have. Now as you can hopefully see I tried to make it look like it is made of my thrall and adamantium. This was going to be used by my technologist character but now too late. So I will have to hope I can work it in with my gnome I will be playing later. Might put butterflies or some other gnomey thing on the shields. I also tried to make the wings look like they are leather with a weathering look. I used gloss cote on the body and flat cote on the wings membrane. Joe <EDIT> un inverted the last to pics to what they should have been.
  6. The Gnome Bard by Stonehaven, not sure why she's singing to a bush, she just is. Something simple I've painted up between other things, but I'm rather pleased with how she came out. Comments and criticisms are, as always, most appreciated.
  7. She has an odd face. After I primed her (well, brownlined her) I couldn't shake the notion that she was singing, deep in concentration on a note. So I painted her with her eyes shut, singing. Her shield is a wee little thing. I painted a French horn on it as a device. She was painted for the January Bones Beauty Pageant and I kind of rushed her at the end. I thought I would go back and fix her hair, but perhaps I will just leave her as a nice tabletop figure.
  8. He was painted for the January Bones Beauty Pageant. He looks a little more old school than the other figures in the pageant. His features looked to me like he could be well painted dark. I see some sloppy areas in the photos. Ah, well.
  9. Cassie is the last of the half dozen Reaper Bones I painted for the January Bones Beauty Pageant with the theme "little people." I had a batch of metal halfling figures I had been looking for an excuse to paint anyway, and I did them as well (Show Off threads to come). She was another figure I looked at and saw with eyes shut, concentrating. When I looked up D&D and Pathfinder gnomes I found references to jewel-colored hair, but also to jewel-colored skin. She gravitated towards a Drow-like coloration of blue-grey skin and white hair. I find her paint job a little rough; I worked fast to finish these by the Beauty Pageant deadline. One thing I did find time for was the little jug on her left hip; I painted it up like a Greek vase.
  10. This little guy was my entry in the Fantasy Single Category at OrcCon this past weekend. He was a fun one to paint and I was very happy with him. One main thing that I wish I had been able to do better was the browns. The border on the cloth, the spear, and the scabbard all were difficult to do any sort of shading and highlighting that would have any impact. I did try some freehand wood grain on the spear but it did not look good so I went with something else. This was my first time doing resin water and I am very happy with how it turned out. The mold did leak a little and it was not level but the resin hardened completely and is clear. I am my toughest critic so I was hoping he would do well but was not expecting much, especially after seeing the other entries. So I was very surprised to find out he won his category and blown away when he got Best in Show. I am still working on my light set up for the pictures. Usually they are too dark, now I think they are too bright but I have a plan for next time. Any input would be appreciated.
  11. 77166: Balto Burrowell, Gnome Wizard, painted for the current Beauty pageant. I cut off the outstretched hand and rotated it to make it more metal, based on a Mantic 20mm base. Strange how a mini that is shorter than an inch goes from "well painted" and you're happy with when seen IRL to "flawed" when magnified by the cruel lens of the camera and too harsh lighting. oh well. Maybe it is the onset of advanced age screwing with both my eyesight and not-so-steady-as-they-used-to-be hands. Bah, enough whining. It is what it is.
  12. Now the exchange mini is done I started work on a new diorama. This will be the inside of a fantasy Library where a party of adventurers is planning a trip. Central will be a large globe. The back will be two stories high with build in bookcases and a walkway on the second floor. The plan is to have one sidewall with a large window and a tapestry. The walls will have wood paneling and possible a mosaic floor. As I am waiting on some materials I started painting the minis for the diorama. The gentleman contemplating the floor is Grand Master Pycelle from Dark Sword. The floor is a test piece I made to see if it works. What do you think? In the back are from left to right: Ailyn Ghonstasavos, Hellknight Captain, Jolie Female Scribe, Balto Burrowell, Cleric of Mammon and the Discworld Librarian from microartstudio. In the planning are also books (duh), maps and all kinds of curios things and knickknacks. Oh, and cats.
  13. Some fellows finally acquired in trades. The crossbowman happened to be part of a lot, but I'd been searching for Thulgrim the Gloater and Corbit Shortstuff for quite some time, and managed to get them both within a day of each other.
  14. I painted up Balto for the little folks beauty contest. It was weird painting a non-Stonehaven Gnome...
  15. I recently started playing a game of 2nd Edition D&D with some friends (not my normal gaming group). As it's my first time playing 2nd Ed. in 15 years, I thought I'd go with something easy. Then I realized no one else wanted to play a mage. So instead I'm playing a Gnome Illusionist. What a great excuse to paint another Gnome!! (and quickly, with his AC of 8 and 5 HP he may not last long). So I present Flizbit von Klaus, Illusionist Extrordinaire! I'd planned to grab a background and take some nicer shots, but forgot and now he's quite shiny with wet sealer (we play tomorrow) so these will have to do. He was a blast to paint (I loves me some Stonehaven Gnomes!) and quick. I did him in 3 sessions, maybe 5-6 hours total, while giving my wife lots of guidance on painting her paladin (77063: Duke Gerard)). I don't usually use a lot of bright colours either, but he really wanted them.
  16. Elliwyn is my entry into the "Little People" Bones Beauty Pagent. I started her at the January meeting of NEMPA and finished her today. (I spent far too long on her for such a silly paint job.) I originally picked the colors to torment Qwyksilver, who was waxing poetic about color wheels at the time. I also originally tried to give her blue skin by mixing the hair color with a skin color, but it just looked too weird, so I painted over it - but not fully, as you can see - for an interesting effect. I mostly dug around in my paint collection for the brightest colors I had. The hair is Surf Aqua, tunic is Breast Cancer Awareness Pink, gloves and shoes are Jade Green (originally Alien Goo, but it was too bright). Shield is VGC Warlord Purple + Red Ink.
  17. This post is a follow-up to A Pair of Very Old Dwarfs and a Very Old Gnome. The best I could come up with for a size comparison was a work-in-progress conversion of a current GW plastic Dwarf warrior model. As you can see, they are pretty similar in size, but the overly-muscled design of the newer dwarfs makes the King look quite the shrimp! I've also included a picture including the newly-finished Queen Asabelle Dragonsmiter, and a group shot of the completed Court-to-date. Thanks for looking!
  18. Second to last wizard I have to paint for Bones 1. He reminds me of one of those mints you get at Olive Garden.
  19. Found this poor guy at the bottom of a pile of figures, I had half finished him years ago and then lost interest in him, he got a reprieve due to me having to wait for another project to finish drying etc so I painted him up in between that one.
  20. Happiest of New Years to you all (if you're into that sort of thing)! With the holidays behind me I hope to get back on track with more frequent posts. Here are three completed models from the Dwarf King's Court set to start off the new year. I was more than a little bit happy to receive that ancient (1982 is pretty venerable if you are 1" tall and made of lead) Citadel Miniatures boxed set for Christmas. My wife scored major points with that one! I have been plugging away at them since tearing the wrapping off, and have finished three so far. They are King Dumin Ironbeard, his bodyguard Orizad Oldrock, and the gnome jester, Corbit Shortstuff. I hope you like them. Comments and questions are always much appreciated. Thanks for looking!
  21. Too bad she wasnt included in the beauty pageant. Maybe she'll be in the Bones 2 one.
  22. Decided to paint up Balto for the Jan-Feb Beauty Contest, mostly because I knew where he was without having to go downstairs.... Here's day one. Haven't really decided on a hair colour yet. Thinking of going with more natural hair colours for my Reaper Gnomes.
  23. So my quest to paint more gnomes continues, even though it's a very slow process as I don't seem to have so much time to paint at the moment. Here's one I got finished I think last weekend, an old gnome illusionist from TSR. Not the most excellent figure ever sculpted, but I think he's a fun one. More gnomes to follow! I keep thinking too about having a frost giant-athon, but that would probably take a lot longer...
  24. Yes, another Gnome. Who doesn't need more Gnomes?? This guy I'm using for my character in 2nd Ed. campaign I'll be playing with some friends. Should be an interesting contrast with the 5th Ed. campaign I'm running with a different group of friends. It will also be my wife's first time playing D&D at all (she's playing a paladin, and will be painting up 77063: Duke Gerard btw). Here's a quick pic of him straight out of the packaging. I've since cleaned him up and given him a good scrub.
  25. This little guy have been sitting on my shelf basecoated and begging to be finished for about a year now. Since I’m focusing more on my metal miniatures this year, and focusing on getting them done, I picked this up and applied the finishing touches. At first I wasn’t happy at all. The whole paintjob just looked dirty. And not the good kind of “in a dungeon for a while†dirty, but just plain “sloppy paintjob†dirty. I didn’t manage to take it all the way but at the end I’m pretty satisfied with the result.
