So finally got around to taking my pictures of my minis from Gencon. I took a bronze for Rumscratch. I was fairly happy with his little beach there, even if the water doesn't show well on camera. My elf sailor was also entered, but not judged, since they only judge one of your entries per catagory. He doesn't look very friendly. He was supposed to though. I did a Wyrd miniatures speed paint of the Immolated Rhino. I didn't know anything about this guy other than it was a rhino. Didn't even know the name until just now, so I made it pink. I made it very very pink. wish I could have come up with something to do with the cracks in his skin. I just kind of ignored them. this guy is a deep cuts guard. I did him up in a color theory class. I don't think he turned out too bad considering the size of the brush I used on him. I'll probably touch him up eventually. Questions, comments, concerns? I also took a miniature photography class and as side effect, learned what a few of the icons on my phones camera do.
Gencon: The Loomining
EvilJames posted a topic in Off-Topic RampancyHuh usually I put one of these up sooner than this. Just been busy I guess. Who's all going? How did you fair in the hotel lottery? So Sunday was event registration. Did you get into the events you wanted? My group did fairly well at the hotel thing this year even though we had to split the group this year. both hotels are fairly close. I got into most of the events I wanted. had some issues with the priority system preventing me from getting into events because it conflicted with another event that I would only be going to if I hadn't gotten into an earlier time. Yet some how it did allow me to sign up for 2 Speed paints that conflicted with other events that I got into. (and I only realized one before paying) Also I just a bit ago remembered that I wanted to do a Frostgrave event but they are all sold out already.
Better late than never. Eviljames's Gencon entry
EvilJames posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI haven't posted anything in a while now, but I have been painting quite a bit. Unfortunately I just haven't been able to get good pictures lately. I think it might be because I finished my hobby room now take pictures downstairs in the basement with less natural light. Sadly It means I had to abandon my dungeon setting for pictures and go to regular photo back grounds, But at least I now have a set up that works for taking pictures now. So I'll be playing catch up for little while with posting some things I've gotten done lately. So With out further ado, this was my Gencon MHE contest entry for this year, a Noh Empire squad. I actually got a bronze this year even though my group base was still really rough. I was super happy about that Bronze! Like I said my group base was really rough and unfinished, but I don't think it counted against me since it was sort of optional anyway. Marikan To was my first major attempt at lining. Mostly on her wraps and on her quiver. I think her skin needed more highlighting but I'm not really sure how to highlight smooth skin yet. The Beastmaster I think turned out pretty good. I was very happy with the faces on his armor. His skin looks like it could use a touch more shade, but otherwise I'm happy. The Hounds of Nozuki were a bit tricky since their fur had no detail I had to try and figure out how to make it look interesting (I had the same issue with Marikan To's hair). I think they turned out ok. I was getting a little burned out on the bases by the time I got to these guys. Marikan To's bird companion. His base took the longest and he was just about the last figure I finished since I wasn't entirely sure how and where I wanted his coloration. Thanks for looking. Let me no if you have any comments, critiques or advice for next time. I'll post some other stuff I've finished tomorrow.
Quick Diorama advice
EvilJames posted a topic in Conversions, Presentation, and TerrainHey I'm attempting something crazy for Gen con this year, and I need a little help. I am doing a diorama for the MHE painting competition, and the title for the piece is kind of an important part of it. Is it common or acceptable to have the title engraved to put on the base? If not, what is a good way to make the title known? This is something I've never done before so any advice (including general diorama advice would be appreciated. I wasn't planning on doing a WIP, just puting the picture up in Show off after Gen con assuming I get it done in time.
Gen Con 2016
EvilJames posted a topic in Off-Topic RampancyGen Con Badges go up today and Hotel shenanigans begin on Sunday! Who's all planning to go so far? The wife and I will be there. (assuming hotel shenanigans can be convinced to go our way again this year.)
Kingdom Death Druid AKA Eviljames Gencon Piece
EvilJames posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingMy Gen Con entry for this year. Overall I'm very happy with her. It's one of the best faces I've done so far. Had a lot of trouble assembling her though. The spear arm gave me fits as it snapped off several times and afterwards I couldn't seem to get it on straight and without gaps again. eventually I was able to fill it with a tiny amount of green stuff. Also had a little trouble pinning her to the base. You can tell she's not exactly flat on it, she actually floats a tiny bit above it and I just couldn't seem to fix it. Also she's leaning, less now than she was but she's still leaning. I tried to do some OSL with the parts of the spear near her hand but I just couldn't make it look right. So I abandoned that idea for now.
DSM 7427 Male Warrior with Battle Axe
odinsgrandson posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingHere was my main entry for the Gencon MHE competition this year. Every year, I spend a lot of time painting a few minis, then enter any gaming miniatures I have that fit the categories. He got a gold award from the main competition, received a judge's choice award, and took home the 4th place Dark Sword trophy. I really love this mini- the biggest trouble I had painting him up was that Jim (owner of Darksword) owns a fantastic version of him painted by Zach Lanier. A lot of the decisions that I made on him kept this sort of meta-thinking in mind (ie, when Jim and Jess were judging the contest, I didn't want them to be comparing him to Zach's mini too much). I think I came out with an interpretation of this mini that is all my own. I've also posted him to Coolmini, for anyone who cares to vote.
77251: Bloodhoof, Minotaur Barbarian
EvilJames posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingHere is the first of the two minis I entered into the painting contest at gencon This was my first attempt at greenstuffing a base and I'm fairly happy with it. Unfortunately I failed to get all the mold lines off of this guy as I spotted the on the top of his axe too late. I also painted the other minotaur from the set but he didn't get quite finished in time. I'll likely post him soon as he is almost done. Of the two though I like this one the most. Still trying to figure out the best way to take pictures and this guy was being a real elf about it for some reason. Hopefully some of these look ok.

Gencon. Who's going?
EvilJames posted a topic in Off-Topic RampancyWith Gencon a little over a month away now, it seemed like a good time to start talking about it. Who's going? Who's entering the painting contest? Do we want to attempt a meet up again? Looking forward to it.
