  1. 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 is the Fairy chases Imps and Stomps a few into the ground. Maybe she swallowed a growth potion or something. Now she can finally have her revenge on those pesky Imps! The Mushroom watches the whole scene in horror. I will not use all these Imps/Demons, but I will take my pick which will suit the scene best. To complement the large Shroom, I will include some smaller resin mushrooms. Painting will follow later, but here are the ingredients:
  2. 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 rocks added; I'm going for a "wasteland" look rather than a ruined urban look. There's a small patch where the base's slot is still noticeable, but I think I'll end up covering it with a tuft later on.
  3. 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 said noob, even though his in box is coming near to bursting from pms.... The mini gets painted to a Not Perfect, But Acceptable standard, the diorama is built, the whole thing shipped out, and received.... But, said noob feels that he is in debt to his benefactor, and wants to do something nice for him..... so while looking through the Hasslefree catalog online, which said noob also learned about from our beloved enabler, he sees a mini called "My Hero"... Problem is, I am not a girl, so the original thought wont work, painting the mini to look like me saying thanks to my rescuer.... But I bought the mini anyway, thinking maybe I could do something.... So as I got to know Ub3r a bit better, and find out things about him, I thought that maybe, I could try and do this as his wife welcoming him home.... As I did not think that she would appreciate being painted up almost sky clad, I thought that I could sculpt some clothes on her, and split the base into a mini diorama, with her on the real life side, and him as his forum personae.... Little did I know that 'drapery', putting clothes on a mini is one of the harder parts of sculpting, but I had an ace in the hole.... Enter the New England Miniatures Painters Association member and forumite Mad Jack.... I asked him at a paint day if he would take a commission, what I wanted, and what it was for, and he agreed! (I will let him make his own comments here....) He did a super duper awesome job for me and I proceeded to work this up.... There was a selected group of folks that I pm ed with a work in progress, so I am going to cut and paste that here, without their comments, they can add them themselves if they wish.... (Edit, I had to edit some stuff that was needed for this to work....) Sent 02 September 2016 - 06:38 PM OH Jack.... She is beautiful!!!!!! Here they are, right out of the package..... now i need to gently clean them, and make the base, and prime..... Sent 02 September 2016 - 07:58 PM Yeah, gotta step up my game for this... Sent 05 September 2016 - 02:15 AM So I did the base in 2 parts, a smaller fan style brick, and a courser dungeon stone for them to stand on... The plan is to have her on the fan style, with the brick painted like a tiled floor, while he is on the dungeon floor with stuff growing through the cracks etc Everything has been primed so I can start.... I forgot to mention Jack threw this in as well... It got started with some Arabic Shadow... Thanks for looking! George (Never did finish the little skull mug, but I gave it to Ub3r at the con....) Sent 06 September 2016 - 02:15 PM So, black, and we all know how much fun that is to paint.... So I am thinking Dark Blue for the dress, with Black shoes.... The barbarian will likely have some sort of tan leather pants, brown boots, and manly chest hair.... I guess that painting chest hair would be like 5 o'clock shadow? a little grey mixed in with the skin tone???? Thoughts or comments????
  4. 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 and I may bring it with me if I finish in time My Open entry is: Hasslefree HFX004 Gen. I will need to link her actual pictures as she is nude. I am going to be converting her into a blue fairy. I have removed her horns and will be adding fairy wings. My Diorama entries are: "The Toad Bridge" which will feature some of Dark Sword Anthropomorphics facing off against each other. "The Hunt" featuring two Mouslings and a spider, but who is the hunter and who is the prey? I have ambitious plans but unlike last year, I am not going to force myself to finish everything. I will work on what I feel like working on and if I get it done, it goes. I won't stress about trying to get everything done as I have a few finished pieces already that I can easily bring. So now onto the pictures. First up is a group shot of all the models except for Gen, followed by a group shot of their bases. I have the bases on my Tablewar tray to make sure everthing fits. I did have to rethink the base for "The Toad Bridge" as the original took up half of the tray.
  5. 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 about painting teams is that it forces one to focus on palette. Thank you for looking.
  6. 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
  7. 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 milliput and use my non existent sculpting talents to try and save the situation. It could definitely have been worse, but it could also have been much much better. Although there's nothing I can do about that now. Looking past the major varnish failure I was really happy with the result. The resulting miniature post "Project save face" is acceptable. Perhaps abit to much orange all around? Should I have gone for a different hair color?
  8. Another awesome sculpt from Hasslefree Miniatures. I'm quite happy with the skin tone of this one.
  9. 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 a pair of small nail scissors. You can see the slightly beveled edge on the effect where that got trimmed. Then the mini itself. All pics linked for nudity, except for number 3 in which her back is turned to the camera. Azura Halfblood front Azura Halfblood left quarter profile Azura Halfblood right profile Azura Halfblood right quarter profile As usual, the camera has revealed every tiny flaw. Sigh. Also, the pics don't show her eyes well AT ALL. I painted them a bright solid teal-ish color, and used the same in the eye sockets of the skull in her hand. It's supposed to look like she's powering up to blast somebody with a beam of unholy power pouring forth from the skull's eyes in a wave of necrotic vileness. But my phone's camera didn't pick up the color very well. On a side note, I have now finished all of the nekkid minis I got from Hasslefree. They were good for practicing skin tones. But I'll be happy to go back to painting clothed people now.
  10. "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.' How about...'She-Woman?' Ew. Okay, maybe not. Hm. 'She-Man?' " "Just stop now." "She-Male? No, wait, forget I said that... "OW..."
  11. 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 :)
  12. 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.
  13. 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:
  14. 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 time I've attempted a tattoo, and I'm generally pleased, though they came out perhaps a tad understated. Also they didn't photograph very well, I'm afraid. As is often the case, the mini is nicer in hand than on screen. This is a birthday gift for a player in my group, who came up with a druid so devoted to nature that she refuses to wear clothing. The player's birthday isn't till June, but once I got started, I just wanted to get the figure done.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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 glued the snapped-off piece down flat instead. Here are the informal group shots from the WIP thread: The formal portraits were bigger than I thought, so I've put them in spoilers. HFN005 "Barney" (Fred) HFN003 "Felicity" (Daphne) HFN004 "Wolsey" (Shaggy) HFN002 "Louise" (Velma) HFN024 "Hamlet" (Scooby Doo)
  18. 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.
  19. 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. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks! Oh, ignore the freckles note. It was an idea that did not work.

    Dakota, Hasslefree

    This is another Neromunda ganger. I really liked this miniature. It was fun to paint. A lot more detailed than I thought it would be when I ordered. She still needs to be based, but I am out of basing materials for my sci-fi table, and Norway is frozen over for the moment. After seeing these pics, I need to drill the gun, too.
  21. Since Inarah post a end of year painting binge I though I give it a go, but at my pace. She is attempting 20 in 10 days. I'm attempting 3+ in 10 days. Which for me is speed painting. Granted one is over halfway. A second it 90% finished, just working on the base. The third will be the hasslefree's strumpet. So... Um.... Yeah.... Binge painting. The + is any other work I managed to get done on top of those. Here is a shot the strumpet: And here is my current WIP that I hope (or dream) to get finished by Xmas:
  22. Alright this WIP will contain more than a few mins. Most of the time I work on one or two specific projects that have a solid deadline. I started to find that I would get burnt out doing that so I am planning on doing something different this time. While a few of these could be competition entries and a couple are gifts, I plan on working on each a little at a time so I can keep my interest renewed. So on to the victims. Starting with the top left, we have a Gotham Policeman from Knight Models. He is a present for my Dad who is a retired police officer and will be painted in a tan uniform that was worn by San Diego PD until the early 90's. It is the uniform my Dad wore on patrol up until he joined their New Technologies Unit. He has no idea that I am doing this for him and I hope I can do it justice. Next up is Reaper's Vampire Noble (3042) whom I am just painting for fun and vampire skin practice. If I get him done he might be entered in the Halloween contest. If anyone knows what the critter by his legs is, please speak up because I have no idea. The little guy next to him is Hasslefree's Albert, a cute little tyke who, like the vampire, I am painting for fun. In the next row we have Stonehaven's half-lion who is a commission for a friend. Next her is Sayna from Draconia and her base. I may do some water effect on her base but I have not decided yet. She may be my entry for the fantasy large category on our next con, if I finish in time. Lastly at the bottom, we have Reaper's Kristiana (77223) and Troll Slayer Sophie (77370). These are commissions for another friend. And finally we had the Lovers from Dark Sword. These are going to part of a small vignette that is for my parents as a late anniversary present. I apologize for the wall of text and lack of paint on the minis. I wanted to get this started before I got too far into working on them.
  23. For the month of October I am going to attempt to paint at least 1 hour a day, and only Halloween themed minis. This is my WIP for it. Started a mini last night so I wouldn't have to spend tonight priming. I will not be repainting the same area over and over and over, since that is what makes me get sick of painting a mini and put it on the shame shelf. To start: we have the lovely "Blanche" from Hasslefree, I splurged on the resin master. The base is one of the spooky Halloween ones from Secret Weapon. Primed with nightmare black by reaper, the rest will be Scale75 paints wit nightmare black in shadows. I love nightmare black....
  24. There's no major theme between this set, other than that they'd make one strange adventuring party. First off we have the LATEST version of Ajaxxus Skiotho, Tiefling Barbarian. I think he's been re-done more times than I've actually played him:
  25. I love these minis. They are from Hasslefree Minis. I choosed a Daphne version with mini-gun instead of a baseball bat. They have also normal versions like in the cartoons of these group.
