  1. I've no idea if this is one of Hasslefree's originals or one of their tributes to media characters. At any rate, I'm painting her up as a slightly unnerving Russian bodyguard named Petra for a modern-day game. Here's my standard priming: A layer of thinned down Titanium White followed by a wash of thinned-down Burnt Umber. I love all the little details Kevin of Hasslefree puts into his sculpts. I especially love how plausibly backside-kicking his women warriors look. Here are a couple of the in-between states of painting up her skin (which is to say
  2. While working on many, many space marines, I started up this nice lady. Currently, she is fairly far along, and I am now struggling with lining her (she's a bit better "in person" than in photos). White and yellow are hard. White and yellow and brown lining don't mix well. :D Here she is. Overall, I am quite happy with her so far. And I really like the color choices despite the work they are.
  3. I finished Hayden up this weekend and then took some glamour shots with my tripod when it arrived on Sunday afternoon (still weirds me out Amazon delivers on Sunday). Overall, pretty pleased with how she turned out. I could definitely do more to the metals to make them stand out but I'm done with her and am moving on to other projects (namely the rest of my November Challenge and the Saladin bust).
  4. Currently I'm working on a set of 5 figures that have a bit of a tribal flavour to them. The first three are from Hasslefree, one is from Red Box Games and the other is from Bombshell Babes. These first 3 figures are at the "okay for tabletop" stage, but I'd like to hone them and take them up to a higher level. When one gets to this stage it is often helpful to have another pair of eyes to help find places where improvement can be made. Here are the first 3 from Hasslefree. All three need more shading and more highlighting. Comments and critiques are welcome.
  5. This is a conversion of Hasslefree's Gen. I had pictured a mini sitting on a stone looking into a pond which sent me on a search that ended with Gen. Her pose was perfect for what I wanted and when thinking of exactly what to do, my mind went to the Blue Fairy. Blue for color as well as mood. So the conversion to her was that I removed her horns and knife, added wings, and added the leaves and flowers to her hair. She received a silver medal in the Open category at ReaperCon. The main feedback I received was I need better directional shading on the base, the way I painted her wings make th
  6. This one might be my new favorite mini.: They just don't make guys like this anymore. He does not bleed. He does not have time for such sissy things. He chews tobacco a box at a time.. In fact, he's so much of a sexual tyrannosaurus that he had to be mounted on the base of a friggin' horse. Although, I do not remember the name of his weapon.. I do remember the sound it makes when it takes a mans life. This is Sergeant Blaine Cooper, along with his trusty side-kick, bringing the payback.:
  7. A little while ago I purchased Hasslefree's "Fairies Wear Boots" piece. The Gothic Punk like Fairy stomps on candy. Now I kept thinking that it would be fun to have her chasing little Imps and stomp those into the ground. So I got me some little familairs and stuff from Reaper. Then Malefacus ( Al) send me a wonderful Mushroom he sculpted. To top things off, Knarthex ( George) send me some stuff including a nice oval wooden plinth. Thinking about it all, I realised I now have the ingredients to start on this piece. The Idea
  8. I picked up Hasslefree's "Post Apoc Gang" in my first order from them last month (when they had a 21% off sale). Thought I'd make a thread to track my progress as I work my way through the team. The gang, from the HF website: I've started work on the first of the crew, "Wolsey" aka Shaggy. Mostly just making sure that I'm getting the colours right at this point, and I'm pretty happy with them, but holy moly that brown on the pants had terrible coverage. Soooo many coats required, but it looks decent now. The base has a coat of Vajello sandy paste with a couple of small rock
  9. So to set the stage.... This noob on the forums joins a mini exchange..... the person he is painting for asks that he challenge himself by only using 1 bottle of Red, 1 Blue, 1 Black, and 1 White..... Said noob is the type that buys paints in quintads (5 paint colors) so he doesn't have to mix paint, has just learned that he can thin paint before adding it to a mini, wet palettes are the Lords of Lead's gift to a painter,etc etc.... So what does any noob to the Reaper forum do when they have a question? PMs Ub3r_N3rd.... Said Ub3r_N3rd is very nice, patient, and helpful to sa
  10. Alright, with two months to go until ReaperCon, I need to get cracking on my entries. I currently have two maybe four entries for Painters, one for Open, and two for Diorama. My definite Painters entries are: Reaper 14131: Elsabeth, Necropolis Captain in purples and blues prancing through a graveyard. Dark Sword DSM7442 Wood Elf Gooddess-Avatar Form in green among forest ruins (started in my previous WIP) My maybe Painters entries are: Kabuki's The Hunter in black and red on a simple base Reaper 03730: Jahenna, Female Vampire, back and white study. This is a commission for a friend
  11. It's been about a year-so long time, no see. We spent almost an entire year remodeling the house and I didn't pick up the brushes for about nine months. It took a little while to get back some brush control, but I'm getting there I think. Beginning again with Hasslefree helped me a great deal as they are such simple figures that require paying attention to the basics of painting-be neat, be tidy, be clean. I don't plan on painting singles much anymore as I am not a display painter. Rather I have chosen to work on teams with pieces that are suitable for the gaming table. The nice thing
  12. So, a modern urban fantasy figure. Hasslefree describes HFA021 Dionne(b) as a vampire werewolf hunter, so I figured I'd paint her skin pretty bloodless. The trench coat and cat suit are my first attempt at monochrome painting, and the base is my first attempt to paint something like asphalt. I like Hasslefree's minis, although the eyes on the whole are awfully small. I painted hers way bigger than the eye sockets, although I can see how painting them as sculpted would make the face look more realistic and rather menacing. Edited to add tags
  13. Man, I hate learning things the hard way. This is Argia Tholos from Hasslefree Miniatures and the original figure is bald. Which she was up until I saw the result of my second layer of floor polish to varnish the figure. She had been hanging upside down to dry which had created a egg head effect when the floor polish collected on the top of her head. I tried to cut it off but eventually was forced to scalp her completely. That resulted in a mark down to the skull which would have been kind of neat if I had painted her up as a zombie. Since I wasn't doing that I was forced to break out some mil
  14. Another awesome sculpt from Hasslefree Miniatures. I'm quite happy with the skin tone of this one.
  15. Here's a finished Azura Halfblood, from Hasslefree, on a base from Micro Arts Studio. First, the base. I took separate pics of it before attaching and painting the mini. This was my first experiment with Realistic Water. I used a piece of blister pack and some scotch tape to form a cylinder around the base, then put in 5 layers of Realistic Water whisked gently with a teeny bit of Formula P3 Wurm Green for murk. That stuff takes aaaages to dry! Anyway, when it was all done I pulled off the blister pack (gently), and then trimmed the meniscus that had formed with
  16. "What do you think? "Well, it's certainly recognizable. 'Cha gonna do with it?" "I have a little diorama in mind with a tiger golem. Wanted to see if this'd work first." "What do you call her?" "She's in the Hasslefree catalogue under the name Delphine." "Her cartoon counterpart was 'He-Man,' and you're going to call her Delphine?" "They only called He-Man that because they couldn't think of any decent names that weren't copyrighted. That's why his savage and faithful steed was called 'Battle Cat.' These were toy executives, not creative geniuses." "You can't just call her 'Delphine.
  17. Trying to get back into the groove after a vacation with a Hasslefree Miniature: Ulfred. I'm quite happy with the result. I think he looks like a badass :)
  18. This little guy was painted up for a local convention competition at OrcCon 2016. He received second place in Fantasy Single. He was a lot of fun to paint and I plan on doing more Hasslefree kids.
  19. Another pair of recently finished works, though photographed through the same techniques that I probably won't re-use as the Elves, are a pair of Barbarians. Kord the Destroyer from Bones, attempting to capture the feel of the Diablo III Barbarian design: And a rather familiar looking Barbarian from Hasslefree:
  20. Here is a completed Xanthia Skyclad, from Hasslefree Miniatures. She's standing on a base from Micro Arts Studios (in their forest collection, the wround 30mm group). Photos linked for nudity. Xanthia front Xanthia profile Xanthia back Xanthia quarter profile There is also a basing thread and a WIP thread. I gave her two small tattoos -- a triskelion on the right shoulder, and a band around her right ankle. Those I just drew on using a .005 Micron pen with archival blue ink, on the base coat, and then covered them over with multiple very thin layers of flesh tones. This is the first
  21. This is Miranda from Hasslefree. I am going to use her in my upcoming campaign as an NPC. She will be a major part of the story. I love this figure. She looks so melancholy. She is also tiny! Slightly shorter than your average Reaper girl but more slender and petite. I was not able to do irises in her eyes. The base will be mounted on a plinth eventually. I didn't have a clue what I was doing making her base so I wasn't sure she was actually going on there. I ended up liking it though so here she is. C&C welcome.
  22. This is the mini I painted for Auberon for the Spring Exchange. She is Henn of Gar from Hasselfree Minis. The green looks really bright in the photos, it didn't look that bright in hand. The is the first major freehand I have tried on anything. It doesn't look bad if you don't look too closely at it! Her cloak is based on Ned Stark's cloak on GoT. Her sword is weird and it isn't the one in the picture on Hasslefree's website. /shrug Don't know what is up with that. Anyway, here she is.
  23. These are from my year-end shelf of half-finished figures, which I am working on finishing. Hasslefree has many fun little nods to pop culture. These are some of my favorites. They are, of course, the entire Scooby gang from Scooby Doo. I couldn't quite bring myself to paint the great dane with Scooby-Doo's coloration, since apparently it does not occur in nature (As my husband said, "And of course authenticity of coloration is of utmost importance on fantasy figures."). This is probably my first attempt to glue props to bases. The candelabrum was a little too fragile, so I glue
  24. This is Hasslefree's HFC002 "Mineko". I am not satisfied with how she came out. I was trying to do something way too ambitious with her clothes and they got kind of out of control. She is a part of my clearing out of my Shelf of Shame, "Pingo's Conga Line of Half-Finished Minis". Sometimes you just need to get things finished and on the gaming table.
  25. Alright guys, I need your help and sorry about the pictures he was a pain to photograph. This little guy is about half-way done so this will be a short WIP but I need some more eyes on him. He is destined for a convention this weekend so I won't have time to change anything major. The tunic, crest, and skin are done, although the skin is washed out in the pictures. Remaining are the tights, shoes, metallics, and base. I am trying for directional highlighting with the light coming from the top and front (shining down on his face) which will be more evident when I start on the metallics. An
