  1. So I got his base done with 2 kinds of sand, some tufts and a blend of turfs and static grasses... WIP here... Here he is! Thanks for looking! The Drow
  2. Painting this guy up for ex's husband for their new campaign... Again, nothing much yet, but gotta keep track of colors.... He's been sitting on the shelf of shame for a while, and the skin was done with GW Tanned flash, but I am going over that with SC 75 Arabic Shadow.. eyes had been done at some point, so exact colors unknown... check back another time to see progress.... G
  3. My first, and hopefully not only, mini completed in 2022! Gabby, here, is a perfect sculpt for one of my favorite NPCs. I absolutely love Christine’s absurdly characterful, nicely detailed sculpts. Hyacinth “Cindy” Dabblethwaite is the middle child of the halfling family behind Dabblethwaite’s Fine Teas, and the champion of the underground bare knuckle fight ring her otherwise very proper family runs in the cellars of their tea house.
  4. Got another one to submit, but still needs its base. Mr. Monk here was a pretty fast shot. I tried to keep colors as simple as possible (which may or may not have been left over colors from my owl bear I did) to just keep the paint moving. BATTLE REPORT! Wins: * Used a flat flesh color with the simple Reikland Flesh shade wash. Combo worked well, but dude looks a little...odd. Will have to add more warmth next time. * Brown hues and simplicity of the scheme helped. * Really enjoying doing townsfolk because of the limited details I need to get into. * Hair felt much better this time. Going with a dark brown, up to a mid brown, then highlight in the ridge of the hairline. * @Inarah I used your method on rope on his belt. Worked! Opporunity: * Playing with flesh tones and how to raise the contrast is very difficult for me. Without making it look...fake. I keep trying to find easier ways to do it, but I think it's just gotta invest to get the best results. * Cape volumes didn't really pop. I was hoping for more depth in the contrast, but it didn't show through and I wasn't willing to push it further after a few failed attempts. * Painting with bone white or ivory continue to plague me. Multiple layers needed because of the chalky pigment density. Anyone got a solve for this? For a base, I'm thinking of including some kind of cross or something behind him. We'll see. I found some pretty nifty little wood engraved sets at Dollar Tree (loving that place more and more these days) that will work perfect. Speaking of which, I have a demon hunter I haven't based yet, that could use one of those, too. Hm...
  5. A try at a new skin tone... still a bit too caucasian. She's ready to intercept the party though...
  6. Well, the construct has a rather large base, so I added a monk, so this is really a 2 for 1 offer. The monk and the construct are both leftovers from other projects. When I saw them on my shelf of "to do", I suddenly got the feeling that they belonged together, don't really know why. There was just this connection between them. So I made them meet on this base. Are they greeting each other? Banishing each other? Is this a planned meeting or does it happen by chance? Friends, rivals or enemies? All that really is for you to decide, I see something different in them every time. I tried to bring them together by using the same colours on both of them. The writing in the scroll and the wooden cross of the monk use the same paint (vallejo wookgrain), the goggles of the construct have the same colour scheme as the cross the monk has around his neck... Also, this is the first horse I painted. Was really fun, actually! C&c very welcome! And here's more: Enjoy!

  8. Hello everyone, here are pictures of a model that had been waiting 34 years before being painted, Ral Partha 02-333 Acrobatic Thief sculpted by Julie Guthrie. "Thanks to @Thoramel, for providing me with the model info.
  9. Hi folks! Today I started painting #03836 "Jakob Janssen, Monk" for our friend Jakob. Sending him some good vibes during this time and excited to finish this and ship it his way! I started with skintones and I'm currently working on painting him with a big ol' George Clooney smile I want to finalize my color scheme but I'm really struggling! Many great painters have already posted photos of their version of this mini and I want to do something different than what's already been done. Here are the three I'm considering: The traditional Shaolin monk color scheme Iron Fist (Marvel) color scheme? (green & yellow) Halfling Monk (Pathfinder) color scheme? (green, red/orange, yellow with freehand insanity) Others?? HALP! The more options I research, the less decisive I get. Going to check back in tonight to see what folks think since I'll need to decide before my livestream tomorrow morning. At the end of the day, no matter what color scheme I choose, I'll do my absolute best to make sure it's something that will hopefully bring @JakobJanssen some creative joy I'll check back in soon. Thanks in advance for your thoughts & suggestions!! --Mocha
  10. Jakob asked me to paint one of his models for his collection, and this is what I came up with. I wanted to give him a tattoo, and I chose a Cherry Blossom Tree. I loved painting this model.
  11. Another delightful sculpt from Oathsworn Sensible Shoes line, the Tabaxi Monk/Mage/Bard (SS38). Had some trouble settling on the color scheme, so she sat half painted for quite a while.
  12. "Bliss" Needed a civilian type for a game, and this was the best I find in my lead mountain. Dunno why, but I keep seeing him as one of those beer-making monks carrying a keg on his back. So I painted him as one who just "sampled" the merchandise and really liked the sample. The nose and cheeks were more "ruddy" IRL but doesn't show up well in the pictures. There is a lightish line at the top of the belly where I tried to repair the paint job after accidently flicking some dark wash on it. The line isn't really visible IRL but clearly seen in the pictures. Thanks for looking. *Edit And if something looked odd with my montage, it's because the second picture got flipped when I was joining the four of them together. Just noticed this.
  13. Once again my buddy with the minotaur character fixation asked me to find a minotaur for him that I can convert into a monk. Given that most are armed and armored ... I understood his dilemma. Thrym's Table presents: Spellcrow Minotaur as Minotaur Monk Original marketing image; copyright Spellcrow Miniatures. The first things that had to go were the axes. The hands were attached to axes on a separate sprue and made it easy to remove them. Next I drilled out the old handle and cleaned up the pins to the wrists. Fairly easy so far. I did it during game night while playing Talisman. I was the Sprite. Next I pared back the horns to create a pin and to create a better profile. The stock horns seemed a bit out of proportion to him. When I got home my original plan was to place pieces of mini cable ties to create a Karnak look for his fists. The cable tie I started with worked to a point but wouldn't lay flat enough to his hand. So time for idea #2, wire. As you can see, Karnak has bands around his hands. That worked well. That gave me the idea for a necklace or medallion swinging away from him. Here he is... Enjoy and stay tuned.
  14. The rest of my Kickstarter for AEG's Thunderstone Quest came in. This was for an expansion that changed the player count from 2-4 to 1-6 as well as adding a cooperative mode. I'm not sure I'd want to play this game at 6 players unless it is cooperative because there is a lot of downtime when its not your turn. In cooperative mode, it seems that everyone goes at the same time, so that probably reduces down time. I didn't realize it at the time, but the expansion ALSO comes with two minis (6 were included in the base game so it wasn't strictly necessary). I also didn't realize that the monk had a mark on her forehead that I THINK is intentional (these aren't the best minis, as you can see from the crease down her back). I would have painted her a lighter skin tone so the mark would stand out better if I realized that earlier. I chose green for her since a nice yellow/orange color was already taken by one of the other minis I painted for this game and I wanted unique player colors. Likewise, I chose white for the crusader because all the good colors were taken and I could see him as a paladin type. Hopefully I don't get any more minis for this game because I'm running out of unique player colors.
  15. This is an Oathsworn Female Monk I took from a BOGW. She is part of my project: Nippon, Land of the Rising Moon and this Mariko in her human form. WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79416-nippon-land-of-the-rising-moon-by-glitterwolf/&page=6
  16. Here we have yet another of Reaper's plastic Bones miniatures, from one or other of the Kickstarters. I don't know the SKU. I've mounted it on a steel washer, and extended the base texture with Green Stuff. He's a stout fellow, in every sense of the word, but I get the feeling he might be a bit of a bastard if you cross him. This guy is painted as a more or less mediaeval European mendicant friar, though the weapon is one the Japanese call tetsubo, an iron-bound club-staff. It was notoriously used by some of the militant Japanese Buddhist monkish sects for killing people without (theoretically, though probably not actually) spilling their blood. There was one sect who carried their sacred bits and pieces in a casket into battle, and threw it into the enemy lines to inspire the monks to a fanatical frenzy to get it back. They were, let's face it, completely barmy.
  17. My last wizkids minis from the couple I had ordered ..the second monk. Not much inspired anyway, but this let me try a bit some paint ...also not to fancy for the base this time :). But it feel good to finish a serie ^^, now I can concentrate on that diorama !
  18. One of our players wanted this guy modeled after Bruce Lee...so here we are...
  19. just finished this new piece.. here my wip thread : and the final result
  20. Hi ! Started one of the monk fihure from wizkids ( couple in stock so I need to get them done ^^ ), so it may be a good place to make my first wip thread ... tried a zenhital priming, using tamiya spray primer and Mr hooby ( that the more easy and cheaper to get in japan ). from there I just apply what I am considering as my base dark tone..well hehe no garanty here I am exploring stuff too :) where I am at for now... i did not too much care about detials for now..let see how this goes xd
  21. So continuing on with my theme of black pants and clothing, and trying to stay in certain color schemes to make my life a tad more efficient, here is the other Monk/Martial Artist I finished basing last night. He has the same black pants more or less that the Brue Lee figure had, also nunchuks, and also ready to beat a wrongdoer into submission. This one is from the Hackmaster line that Ral Partha has brought back, sculpted in 2003 (I checked the bottom before I put him on his base) by Jim Johnson. Another fun and simple figure, not too many dingly danglies, just a man, his pants, a European shoulder bag, and a few weapons. I kind of wish his wrist bands had turned out a little bit better metalwise, but oh well, he's done and I'm not going back, too many things pending...
  22. And the third miniature in the "black pants" series of figures I just finished up, another monk. This one is another old school wonder, a monk from the Grenadiers Specialist box, probably from the latter seventies-early eighties. This one is not only in my by now certainly infamous "black pants series", but also belongs to my comparison series, where I take something I painted aeons ago and painted up a new version. This one got the same skin tones as my Bruce Lee I recently painted, and the same pants as the other monkey, Bruce, and an upcoming black jacket on somebody. First the 21st century version, complete as of May 7, 2018: and then his grandpa, one I painted probably somewhere between 1982-1984 or earlier. I really should have kept better records as a young nerd, but I guess at that time I didn't figure I'd grow up to be an obsessive older nerd: and then here they are side by side: I think it's a pretty fun and enjoyable exercise these comparisons. I'd highly recommend it from anybody who is actually old enough to have been painting "way back when", whenever that way back when was, the seventies, eighties, or even 2016!
  23. This is a Clanwars mini provided by @Jasper_the_2nd in my project he is Master Nurin. WIP and story here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79416-nippon-land-of-the-rising-moon-by-glitterwolf/&page=2 I tried a little freehand. Two sets of pics in different light. Which ones are the best? Master Nurin watched how the undead samurai burned down the Kenmu town. Yoshigaru would be pleased, this was only the beginning. His wrath for murdering the Toda Clan would be merciless.
  24. Relatively quick tabletop job. I wanted him to be dark, but not completely black. Used a lot of Corporeal Shadow highlighted with blue.
