  1. continuing my quest to paint down some of my metal mountain of dragons is my second Green Dragon II from Grenadier. I wound up with multiple copies of this dragon (I wont say how many but i still have another in its original box...) so when i noticed that i had primed this one a while ago, i decided to try the painting method from Mocha's painting a Rocky class during Reapercon (thanks @Mocha I am getting a lot of use out of that technique and it has definitely helped me with contrast in everything I paint) of starting with the darkest colors and working up to the brightest. This is the result of my trial with the dragon of the month series . I decided that since they liked swamps and other watery environments, i would give her a bed of dry river rocks in an underground cave. (hey everyone likes a comfy bed but nobody really likes a wet bed!) so i started with the base the miniature came with and expanded from there bringing the rocks out from there. The first pass had them all a monotone color which left the base looking almost black and white against the green dragon. Interesting but not what i wanted. Some colored inks later and we have a nice bed of various colored rocks! She comes out really vibrant with lots of shadow and contrast really nice! About my only fault is i haven't given much thought to handling a different colored belly scale and how a significantly lighter scale would work given the steady darkening as the light lowers past the widest parts of the model. Oh well, maybe next time. For comparison, this is the same dragon I did about a decade ago: I like both but i dont have to guess about which one will catch the most attention, even though it took far less time and skill. I am happy to give both of them a home, though i should probably give the older one a new base and maybe fix a few of his chips and dings (honorably gotten eating unwary PCs and their horses!) Hope you enjoy them!
  2. Lardgulp I painted for my FLGS's painting club.
  3. As the year wears on i continue to complete my personal challenge of 12 dragons in 12 months. (I have to go count but i think i am there... not sure though so I keep it up!) this is another oldie but goodie from the third Dragon of the month series by Grenadier. this was the January offering, the black dragon. I decided that this dragon liked his underground layer so the base is done as a broken river skree. the large open space made me add a small geode, just to see if i could do it. The dragon is painted with dark blacks and Purple shadow (which actually looks darker than the black so there!) Then i used some new wax paints i acquired to bring up the colors on the highlights to give him a shiny scale and brightness. I think this is the first time i have created a dragon that actually looks black but still has lots of texture and contrast. Again congrats to grenadier for acquiring some really lovely sculpts and turning them out back when high definition was not a popular feature. there is a lot to see on this dragon, right down to the small row of teeth that line the edges of his closed mouth. I had a lot of fun painting him. I hope you enjoy him too!
  4. Simple paint job for the Mushroom King. I wanted it to be all white, like a typical mushroom from your refrigerator, but that was way too boring. But I do like the small pops of color here and there. As always comments and critiques welcomed and encouraged!
  5. Warren of Vile Fungi is scheduled to start at 7:00 pm EST on Friday, November 1. It will include over 2 dozen individual fungoid-based miniatures developed and sculpted by Pedro Navarro. He's been working on this project for over 2 years in collaboration with Mortal Arrow. It's a deep dive into heroic, fantastic, and terrifying fungal beings from the 1970's to the present. Ascomoids, Gas Spores, Basidironds, Ustilagors, corrupted Myconids, and heroic Myconids are just some of the many hand-sculpted miniatures from Pedro. The project itself will be live for only 2 weeks, so please consider supporting this effort by Mortal Arrow and Pedro Navarro. Every little bit of aid is important to us, so we kindly ask that you follow this project at the link below: https://www.kickstarter.com/…/12638849…/warren-of-vile-fungi You can see more details about the miniatures on the Mortal Arrow Facebook and Pedro's blog here: http://mr-bugman.blogspot.com/ We will be posting details and updates on this thread as well. Thanks in advance for everyone's help and enthusiasm!!! We are very excited to bring scary, and heroic, fungi to peoples around the globe!!
  6. Further efforts to produce a dozen dragons this year brought me out to the desert sands where even dragons new to worry about being spotted if they want a decent meal. To this end desert dragons are campflaged to look like the ground from above and the sky from below. Hope you enjoy him
  7. The latest from my bench, Reaper Minis Sir Conlan. This is a character for my D&D game. Player requested muted colors but a contrasting blue cloak. What do you think? Did I succeed? As always C&C welcomed and encouraged.
  8. I painted this up for my running game as an NPC. Had a heck of a time with her face - I seem to had inadvertantly ended up with a sort of mask effect on her eyes - and I'm going with that in game - sort of fits the NPC anyway
  9. Painted this dwarf after he inspired me to write a D&D adventure. It's a really cool fig with plenty of neat little details. Comments and critiques are always welcome! Thanks in advance!
  10. Like the post title states this is a set called Agamemnon and the Minotaur by Northumbrian Tin Soldier. I’m not all that good with photo skills so it’s rather hard to see that I did the Minotaur in a black & white milk cow theme. Fun model though and goes back to the 80s cult classic Time Bandits (I really need to watch that movie again).
  11. Ladless and Gentlemints, I've been kicking this idea around for a while now. And with the current isolation I think it's a great time. I propose a craft paint challenge. I have tons of great miniature paints from various brands, but for the sake of fun lets see what we can do with craft paints. This is my proposal. Grab a random miniature, Bones or otherwise, and ideally whatever craft paints you have on hand (no going to the store for craft paints, this is to promote social distancing) and see what you can do. This will serve two purposes. It will be a fun way to throw some paint on a miniature, and hopefully we can also show a lot of people that while specialized paints are amazing, you can also get decent results on a budget. If you aren't into miniature painting, and still want to throw some craft paints on canvas or paper or whatever then that would be great as well. I encourage everyone who feels it to jump in on this. Also what do you think about #craftpaintchallenge for tagging. Please post results on here and other social media. Lets see how much love we can get, and how far this will go. Official/unofficial start date of 4/11. And lets go. Cheers.
  12. This is another bogle for Monster Blood Tattoo though it happens to look a lot like an especially large werewolf. First the sculpt: Although fur is often difficult to clean the parting line on this one was largely invisible to begin with. Second the paint: It lent itself to a simple drybrush, but I've gone for such dark colors it doesn't show up in the photo. Third the question: I just glued it to a round base today and can't decide how I should finish the base. It's going to be used in tabletop skirmish games so it doesn't need anything fancy. I just can't decide between gluing on sand and little rocks, applying resin sand gel, or using Apoxie Sculpt to build up the circular base to the level of the stock base. Opinions? Pros & cons?
  13. This is one of my favourite minis and I have been working on it for awile. I hmmd and hawd about how to base it but finalluy decided to do a simple raised cork base.
  14. Hadn't painted metal in a while... it was refreshing!
  15. Painted up this cool dwarf. Went for an icy look and I'm really happy with how he turned out. Critiques and advice are always welcome! Thanks in advance!
  16. Painted this swarthy looking dwarf up for a sorcerer character I'm planning on playing at some point. I'm really happy with how he turned out. My wife actually suggested the shock of white hair on the top of his head, which ended up being my favorite part. Critiques and advice are always welcome, thanks in advance!
  17. Hi i pre-ordered a Valeros Iconic fighter v1 at our local game store, i would like to ask if there is assemble required with mini beside the base assembly? Do still need to pin some parts of the mini? Tnx
  18. I took these pictures during the WIP phase of my gift for Fealron.
  19. Wanted to try something different with this paladin looking fig. I figured the most opposite thing of a paladin would be a drow warlock, so I just went from there. I kept everything pretty simple, but spent a decent amount of time on the cloak and flaming sword. Very happy with the results, comments and advice are always welcome! Thanks in advance!
  20. This was one of two figures I painted for @Fealron for the Secret Sophie this year. His ideas were Metal, minimal basing for gaming use, a woodland creature, usually considered good but turned to evil, and a minion of a necromancer. After thinking a while, I decided I could knock out all his ideas with some evil unicorns. Here is the second. Maybe once the prior unicorn charmed by a necromancer does, he raised it as a skeleton, and put another minion on top. Here are the WIP shots: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/90618-02631-skeletal-cavalry-project-2-of-2-for-fealron/ I magnetized the mount and rider. I had a lot of fun with these, and definitely bittersweet to part with them! Thanks for looking. C&C Welcome
  21. This was one of two figures I painted for @Fealron for the Secret Sophie this year. His ideas were Metal, minimal basing for gaming use, a woodland creature, usually considered good but turned to evil, and a minion of a necromancer. After thinking a while, I decided I could knock out all his ideas with some evil unicorns. Here is the first. I envisioned a unicorn charmed by a necromancer that tramples a virgin, staining it black. That taint would spread from the hooves, causing a grayscale, with only a few remnants of white/color where the corruption is still incomplete. Here are the WIP shots: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/90564-starmane-unicorn-02151-project-1-of-2-for-fealron/ I’ll post the fiction a little later when I’m at my desktop. C&C Welcome.
  22. Another mini which has been done for a while: a raptor. This was meant for a module that uses a raptor hatchling as an animal companion for a kobold Ranger. Here is a link to the WIP. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/87634-14475-warlord-raptor-reptus/&tab=comments#comment-1856740 C&C welcome.
  23. Hey everyone! It's been forever since my last Show Off, I finally got around to upgrading my painting space with a nice lamp so I actually have decent lighting now. This is a fig for my Goliath character in a D&D game. There is a pretty bad mold line that I didn't notice until after painting, but at that point it was too late to scrape off. Overall I'm pretty happy with him and am looking forward to posting again! Comments and advice are always welcome! Thanks!
  24. Latest tormentor for my D&D group. Legs were a bit wonky to put together but I got them in the end. What do you think?
  25. Since I hadn't seen many other paint jobs go by I thought people might like to see my goblin in power armor. And a blood nebula mercenary for scale.
