    77212: Tiik Baron

    This is another fishy Tiik monster, this one Reaper's 77212, Tiik Baron. He was part of my year-end Conga Line of Finishing Up Half-Done Minis. There is an old WIP here. I was never quite able to make out what the thing on his left gills I painted red was. I think it might be a hermit crab in a shell. Earlier cousin Tiik figures here and here.

    02115: Mishka The Mystic

    As with Katarina the Invoker, this is really from the set 03375: DHL Classics: Female Wizards. The figure is not quite as shown in 02115 as the figures in 03375 have tiny bases, barely larger than their clothes, which is why I have attached them to fender washers. She is also part of my year end Conga Line of finishing up half-done minis. If I didn't do something like this I would probably fuss over her forever. Sandra Garrity is a wonderful sculptor for women with lots of personality.
  3. This is another figure from my Conga Line. She was one of my earliest purchases after coming back to the hobby, but it took me a while to finish her. I love all the pretty little details Julie Guthrie sculpted onto her. I enjoyed playing with fabric transparency in an entirely family-friendly way. ETA: Oh hey, I just noticed she's the first Pathfinder figure I've painted.
  4. Another from the Conga Line, this is Bob Ridolfi's 50016: Rosie, Chronotechnician. I painted her up for a Shadowrun game. Originally this picture was for scale for the Malifaux Whiskey Golem, but I think they look right together.

    77215: Eregris Darkfathom

    This is Reaper's 77215: Eregris Darkfathom, some sort of evil fish priest, which is how I mentally labeled him before I looked up his name and SKU for his post. Unusually for Reaper, they don't seem to list who the sculptor is in the online store. I was painting him up as part of a pack of aquatic baddies, but lost a bit of steam until the new year's Conga Line. He's got lots of layers; I particularly like the ruffled live scallop effect of the bottom of his skirts. I made liberal use of semi-translucent metallics and iridescents. His face is barely indicated in all that regalia.
  6. In rounding up figures to log what I had painted last year, I turned up lots of half-finished minis. Some of them had little bits I was unhappy with; some need repair; some I had lost interest in or overlooked; some I felt weren't going as well as I would have liked; and some were just in the limbo of unfinished projects. So I figured I could finish them up, to tabletop standard at least, and have them usable in games. That's going to be my year's beginning project, clearing out the backlog of figures. They range from almost completely finished (except maybe for some basing) at the front, to just colors blocked in at the back. So I laid out the most nearly finished ones to begin with and got started. First I glued things that needed it: Some Tom Meier Thunderbolt Mountain elves are exquisite, but on tiny bases prone to tipping over. I glued them onto pennies. And I glued some skulls and books and things onto the bases of Hasslefree's not-Scooby-Gang. And by not fussing over bases and accepting that I may be unhappy with certain aspects, but they are okay for gaming, I finished four figures this first session! These are Reaper's 50134: Racquel Blackrose, Buccaneer by Patrick Keith; Reaper's 02115: Mishka The Mystic by the incomparable Sandra Garrity; Hasslefree Miniature's HFC002 Mineko by Kev White; and Reaper's 02075: Katarina The Invoker, also by Sandra Garrity. I am a little dissatisfied with them, especially Mineko's kimono which went a little wonky. On the other hand, yay! finished!
  7. So I'm painting up this figure as a PC because I haven't anything quite suitable. She's a ship's captain from a strange corner of the world with hyperbolic geometry. I am planning to do a little hyperbolic graph based on some of M.C. Escher's designs on her parchment. It also accounts for the shape of her hat, which is an ahistoric error based on a misunderstood flat image of a perfectly ordinary tricorne hat. Not that I blame Ridolfi for that. That hat has entered pop culture the same way "Juliet caps" have, and with as little historical reality. Anyhow, I can lay the hat's shape at the feet of hyperbolic geometry, so hey. I started with a priming of Titanium White paint. The paint is pretty thin and translucent, much less opaque white than it appears in the photograph. I stuck her to a little jar with some poster tack and washed her with Burnt Umber to bring out the details. I love the details on this figure. The skull on her hat seems to be giving the o.O look. I was working with some pink, so I warmed it up a bit and painted her face. I think she looks a little sinister at the moment. I think it might be the shadows under her eyes and the eyebrows.
  8. This is Jason Wiebe's Ogre Chieftain, one of Reaper's first Bones figures and one of my earlier efforts. I finished it as part of my year-end Conga Line of Half-Finished minis, which I've been chowing down on the last ten days or so. I wanted him to have a sort of sickly color.

    50065: Rex, Dark Future Hero

    This is Reaper's 50065: Rex, Dark Future Hero by Tim Prow (there's also a Bones version). As part of my year-end cleaning up of half-done minis, he's a simple tabletop job (given when I started him I cannot lay any claim to this being a fast job). WIP FWIW here.
  10. This was one of the half-finished minis in my end of the year finish-it-up pile. When the news about David Bowie's death broke I pulled him out to finish him. Shadowrun first came out in 1989. This figure (originally a Ral Partha, now from Ironwind Metals) came out in 1993. At the time the future aesthetic was terribly 1980s, and all the male elves looked like Bowie's Goblin King from Jim Henson's movie "Labyrinth". He is a decker. This involves having actual computer implants in his skull and having to carry around, in his hands, a gigantic 1980s-style keyboard and computer, because the future is not wireless. Ah, well. I'm not sure how well the figures sold, since Shadowrun is not necessarily a game that lends itself to minis scale combat (being prone to car chases and virtual reality). I like them anyway, as a bit of '80s retro-futurism noir.
  11. So my old Winsor & Newton series 7 size 1 finally died. Last year (or possibly longer ago) there was some concern about US Fish and Wildlife importing regulations making kolinsky sable paint brushes much harder to find in the US. As a result, I bought some brands I hadn't tried to test out should trusty old Winsor and Newtons become unavailable. I've had good experience with Old Holland paints, so I decided to try their brushes too. Brush size has no standardization or consistency from brand to brand. Each picture below shows a new Old Holland Series 7001 Kolinsky Size 4 brush (above) and a new Winsor and Newton Series 7 Size 1 brush (below), and as you can see they are pretty much the same size. Before washing (as came from store): Washed, with centimeter scale: The Old Holland brush has a much longer handle and a thicker grip near the business end: Details of markings: I haven't tested them in painting yet, but while washing them they seemed to have about the same amount of "snap".

    77276: Sea Hag by Pingo

    Here's a fun Bones figure by Julie Guthrie. She is covered with sea life: kelp, barnacles, a small octopus on her left elbow, a starfish on her left calf at the back, and a little crab on her right forearm at the back. She has great lines as a piece of sculpture. WIP threads here and here.
  13. I recently finished a set of several spider centaurs and a big spider demoness as part of my conga line of year-end finishing projects. These are two male "arachnid warrors" with some sort of eldritch swords. I had a lot of fun painting them. WIP thread here. Companion pieces: 77180: Shaerileth, Spider Demoness and 77182: Arachnid Archer
  14. Finishing up some minis, including a small coterie of spider centaurs and their demon mistress. These are two of Gene Van Horne's "Arachnid Archers". I had a lot of fun painting them. Front views are linked offsite because of nudity. Front views: http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u439/PingoPaints/Miniatures/Female%20Driders%201_zpspjgm3vbn.jpg http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u439/PingoPaints/Miniatures/Female%20Driders%202_zpsxvv1dozb.jpg http://i1067.photobucket.com/albums/u439/PingoPaints/Miniatures/Female%20Driders%203_zpsgye2xhwm.jpg I am especially pleased at how the red one came out. In person she looks translucent like a pomegranate seed: Companion pieces: 77180: Shaerileth, Spider Demoness and 77181: Arachnid Warrior WIP thread here.
  15. A few things about this figure: She is part of my year-end conga line of finishing up half-done minis. I did not glue her abdomen together or to her body. It is in two parts like a little clamshell box and for some reason this tickles me. I picture her as like a very weird gift box for something small and valuable. Frontal pictures are linked off-site due to forum nudity policy. In order to avoid distracting shadows I photographed her on a sheet of plexiglass in front of grey cards ... and then I was enchanted by the shadow and reflection patterns anyway and ended up playing with them. Spiders have such beautiful shadows! Like so: Anyhow, I've cropped most of the shadow and reflection play out, but it's there in most of the original photos.

  16. This is one of the first batch of miniatures my husband got me after I got back into painting them. It's a fun, weird little set, with something like a lecturer or doctor and a useful anatomical skeleton specimen. The skeleton comes with its stand only so I glued it to a penny.

    End of the Year Roundup

    So here's what I finished this year, most of it from Reaper: A whole bunch of halflings and gnomes. A couple of frost giants: Reaper's Frorigh and Otherworld Miniatures' nameless giant. Dragons (and one ice wyrm). I actually made bases for the dragons (no, really!), so I should try to find later photos of them as well, and do Show-Off threads for their finished forms. Terrain pieces from Itar's Workshop, some sci fi, and lots of aquatic creatures. Standing stones both sinister and benevolent from Naloomi's Workshop (Hijad the Pirate amongst the standing stones is only there for scale). Lots of Mouslings and more aquatic critters. The kraken is done but I haven't made a Show-Off thread for it either, which is why the casual garden photography. And two Discworld characters, Granny Weatherwax and Samuel Vimes, from Micro Art Studio.
  18. So last winter I painted up some Reaper dragons. I thought about submitting them to the Reaper 3rd Annual Large Model Paint Challenge, but I was somehow dissatisfied. They were painted, but a little ... lacking. Also they had a tendency to tip over one way or another. For the most part, until now I haven't based. At the most I glue minis to pennies or fender washers and paint them illusionistically. But there's a first time for everything, and this time I wished to base these dragons. I started with the two smaller dragons, the fire dragon and shadow dragon. I traced them and drew contour maps for a layer or two of foam core board. I figured I'd try the lowest layer as a shape of bristol illustration board, something I had lying around, and I would glue them together and contour the shapes with epoxy. Here are the foam core shapes traced onto the board. And cut out with their pattern pieces; the bristol board too (at the top).
  19. These are from the Boat Pack, part of the Renaissance Miniatures East Asian line. I made them up for my husband's birthday. On the whole they went together fairly straighforwardly. I found the cabin support hoops on the larger boat (they call it a "twakow" but "tongkang" may be a more common term -- I just think of it as a riverboat with a sail) needed a little shaving to fit into the openings on the deck. The planks that go over the hoops, making the shelter, were a little fiddly on both the sampan and the larger river boat. I ended up leaving off the top central plank on the sampan. I include the Reaper Sea Lion and a Dark Sword mermaid warrior figure for scale. These are the outrigger canoes, one with a sail: This is the larger, sailed riverboat and the sampan:
  20. These are prepainted wood kits from Renaissance Miniatures. I made them up as a gift for my husband, who is running a nautical campaign. The stiffened gauze fabric is supposed to look like a fish net. I'm not sure how successful it was. The kits are pretty nice. They are well-designed, fit together well and come apart into separate layers so you can place figures on different floors inside.
  21. These are a couple of little bridge kits from the prepainted Renaissance Miniatures East Asian line. I put them together as part of a terrain bundle for my husband's birthday. I think of them as the sort of thing that would show up in a zen garden. Putting the slats on was a little fiddly because they sort of held the whole thing together at first. I needed to glue down a couple of steps at each end, then wait and glue the rest later. These are Hasslefree figures and a little Breyer horse for scale.
  22. http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/shadow%20dragon/sku-down/77108#detail/IG_4357_1 This is my first figure to show up in the Reaper store. I'd been kind of hoping this might happen some day, and I find myself surprisingly tickled and honored. It's my take on the Bones Shadow Dragon, 77108, which I painted up with an electrical motif (Show Off thread here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61271-dragon-of-lightning-and-storm-from-77108-shadow-dragon/). Note also Siri's brilliant version of the same figure, also in the store (Show Off thread here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/56435-77108-space-shadow-dragon/ ). Thanks to Morihalda for spotting it and alerting me!
  23. I am just calling this "Tiik Abomination" because it looks so much like Julie Guthrie's Tiik Warriors, apart from the extra set of arms and what looks like Cthulhu on its loincloth. But that's just my name for it; I don't know what Reaper will officially call it when it is released in their store. Anyhow, to start with I prepped and primed it with Reaper's Brown Liner, then washed a light turquoise blue over it and a medium red-orange I had mixed up on the base (because for an undercoat for sand any warm color will do). I mixed up a cream color and painted the creature's teeth and loincloth and washed a layer of it over the base for sand.
  24. So this is the new Bones II Kickstarter frogman shaman, 92683, sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I love this figure. It has lots of delightful details. Its staff alone is a treasure chest of goodies: a narwhal tusk wrapped with seashells and a starfish, with a little puffer fish hanging off the top. The shaman is also wearing a frog skull which is available in the Boneyard as a separate piece. The teeth, however, are silly. Frogs don't have them. I don't think this one could close its mouth properly on those. Perhaps they are false teeth worn for battle. I painted the shaman and the two warriors that go with it like a common leopard frog, the sort I used to catch as a kid. WIP thread here.
  25. These are frogman warriors from the new Bones II Kickstarter figures, sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Like the accompanying frog shaman, these critters are full of character and interesting detail. I painted them up like common meadow leopard frogs, the sort of spotted green ones I played with as a child, because they seemed a bit big and burly to be tropical tree frogs. The one with the spear and human-face-shield is 92681; the one with the fork and turtleshell shield is 92682. WIP thread here. Just as a side note: Does anyone know how to make it so the pictures in the post are nice and small but we can click on them and see a larger one?
