  1. Simple speed paint. All done except for the base. Edit: I've added my 2nd Cairn Wraith. I really liked Michael Proctor's example paint so I copied the color scheme for it.
  2. It's been awhile since I posted some pics of my completed works so I thought I would get some put up here in hopes of some more insightful C&C. Here is Mason Thornwarden which I recently got from the BoGW. A couple comments about this guy. I was going for a polished grainy wood appearance on the bow but not sure if I like the result (on the picture that looks like a white spot on he back of the bow is just the reflection of my lamp on the glossy bow). On his quiver and scabbard I tried kind of a black leather look which I have mixed feeling about as they look better in person than on camera. I also tried some NMM gold on the handle of the bow with my new MSP paints, again I have mixed feelings about how it turned out but I really like the triad. I think my painting continues improving but I am still lightyears from where I want to be. I know I can still be a little cleaner with my paint job and I could work on smoothing my blends (especially on the boots) but I would really appreciate any C&C that anyone has.
  3. I've been working on painting tartan a bit (Ian MacAndrew Show Off) A while ago I said I would post a step-by-step of painting a tartan(Painting Tartan). So here it is: 02243 Robert O'Mannon sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I started by deciding what colour tartan I would paint. On the last project I used the Afghanistan Memorial Tartan ( Tartan reference material ) but changed the blue to green and left off some of the highlight colours. I've found that most patterns of tartan are really far too complicated for me to attempt to paint, so I pick out one that I can simplify into easily painted elements. These elements often combine multiple lines from the original tartan into a single line of a similar colour. The result is a pattern that suggests a tartan but without having to paint a lot of very fine lines. Painting very long, fine lines is the particular challenge of painting tartan, so the fewer you can get away with the better. So for this project I decided to use the same tartan pattern again, but to keep the blue colour and to add in the red and white lines. This is risky because the white lines in particular can be very hard to paint smoothly and they stick out like a sore thumb when they are messy. Mistakes will be highly visible, as you will see. Another consideration for selection of the tartan and the colour of tartan is the overall composition of the final miniature. The very fine lines can be hard to notice, so adding a similar colour elsewhere on the miniature can help make the colour more easily noticed. This is why I painted Robert's hair red and his amulet blue. Step 1: Draw out the main lines for the pattern and select the colours. I also test painted a swatch of the pattern. From this I knew that the blue would need to have the intersection squares painted in darker or it wouldn't look right.
  4. Ian MacAndrew by Bobby Jackson. This is the first of several projects with tartans that I'm working on. Once I get a better grip on the process I will do a detailed WIP.
  5. Allanah Greyloft OSL project. The WIP is here. Allanah WIP If you have any suggestions or criticisms I'd love to hear them.
  6. I haven't painted much lately, but I did make time to paint this for a close friend's D&D character. So far she seems happy with it, so I'm happy. Sorry for the lighting - forgot to take a proper photo before gifting it, so I had to hold it almost inside a lamp.
  7. Rescued from my shelf of shame thanks to a suggestion from Inarah. Vampire striking a dramatic pose. I get the feeling she's not too worried about any pesky wooden stakes in that armour. Comments and criticism are welcome.
  8. I have finally finished something big! My previous max size was a big spider that I managed to fit on a 4" base, this though... this is proper! This is 77110: Deathsleet (Bones) in a white dragon paintjob. I had a lot of fun painting it and I even used some of my n00b airbrush skills on the wing membranes. Overall I am very pleased how this one came out.
  9. My current project from my Shelf of Shame. She got abandoned when I couldn't figure out what to do about damage to the figure around her mouth. I'm going to use her to practice NMM. Flesh painted. I used the fair skin triad with pure white added for highlights and imperial purple added to the shadows. I'm undecided about her eyes as yet. I'm wavering between a dull lifeless pale blue or bright yellow and orange. For the armour I'm using the night sky triad with black added to the shadows and pure white added for the highlights. Only a little bit of blending done so far on her left shoulder, arm and hip. Some of the convex shapes are causing me to do mental gymnastics to figure out where the highlights should be. Her hair is the undead flesh triad with imperial purple added to the shadows and pure white added to the highlights. The gems will be bright flaming yellow/orange which is why I'm considering whether the eyes should be yellow too. I might dull down the gems to red and give her bright yellow eyes.
  10. Well, we have my next installment in some townsfolk Adventuring Kids. Cuthem the Barbarian with a ummmm.... follower of sorts, Spire. The names were given by @SisterMaryNapalm in the WIP I have running for these little tykes. Spire was donated to the cause of this little scene by @malefactus. Love the stuff he makes. Scene Set if fiction by @SisterMaryNapalm "Who are you?" "Me? Ah - don't mind me. I am just an obscure bystander." "You are? You look like a big talking mushroom." "Yeah ... I mean ... what a nice axe you've got there. It's pretty sharp, isn't it?" "It is. You can chop a guy in half. That's not something you can do every day!" "Sounds like your favorite 80's action film." "What's that?" "Never mind. My name is Fungal Spire." "Barbaria Cutthem." Cutthem and Spire - the new show on Netflix WIP Here Thanks for Viewing my madness and any C&C you feel inspired to give.
  11. Painted this guy up real quick for a game I'm playing in. This was my first real use of the airbrush and I had a few flubs with the blending but overall I'm good with the results.
  12. Got my painting room into shape enough to start painting. Since I haven't really done much since...May? I figured I'd just done some quick table top figs to get back into it. Most of my figs are still stuffed in the closet or basement, but I found a bag of IMEF marines I'd been using as proxies for SecFor IV in MERCS: Recon until I got some MERCS painted. Picked out one of each (don't seem to have the kneeling guy, have to track him down once I get my Bones out of the closet) and threw some brown liner on them. So far I've determined I need to steal the comfy padded chair back from my wife. The hard wooden chair will not do for long sessions.....
  13. Back in December, when I finally had some time and motivation to get back to painting, I decided I'd really quickly do up some IMEF marines. Just table top, didn't even clean up mold lines or anything. Well, do primarily to being easily distracted by......what was I saying? Oh yes, easily distracted by other bright shiny objects, it took me over 4 months to get them all done. Here is a quick group shot. I still don't have any real futuristic urban terrain to use to shoot these guys. Reggie and Torch still need to be sealed, but looking at the forecast it could be June before it stops raining. The rest have already seen combat as some mercs for hire last week in Savage Rifts. WIP ( with many individual shots) is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/78476-jasper-gets-back-to-painting-with-some-imef-marines/
  14. New project, not from my shelf of shame. My plan is to use greys to make it look like she is in pre-dawn light with a little bit of illumination from a glowing golden gem on the end of her staff. So far I have managed to prep the mini and apply the paint on primer. This is my first time using this primer so I'm interested to see how smooth it will be.
  15. First Post! Hard to see in the pictures but his eyes and beak are done in a shiny varnish. Im pretty proud of him and might base him at some point. Any Critique is welcome!
  16. Finished him up a week ago or so, but just got around to pics. Second attempt at NMM, not really happy with the results, but I suppose it works. Had further plans on doing OSL from the sword but was feeling finished by the time I got that far and decided good enough. May try and come back and add it in later though.
  17. Been trying to do so much. Get back into woodworking/pipe making, both kids have baseball, son has scouts, and I've been wanting to paint some more. So here is a figure I started a while back. I didn't take any before pics but I started to repaint the old areas I had painted.
  18. Ok, painted one of these up a few months ago and just did the other 2 a couple weeks ago. Just picked up an airbrush so this was my first time trying out some zenithal highlighting. I'm pretty happy with how the new ones turned out. First the old one Then here is one of the new ones And the group photo
  19. Another one for a client of mine completed! He sent me a character illustration as inspiration for the mini. Really like this figure, and may pick him up myself, paint him in full military green for use with my IMEF Troopers!
  20. I wanted to share this since I did not find many of these already painted when looking for reference photos, maybe it can help someone else! I went super bold with this guy, as I tend to do lol! The pictures don't really show how gross those pustules are though lol! They have a bit of nurgle's rot on them as well. The basing was done with mostly natural elements! A real lichen laden stick, seed pods, fern leaves, along with some Army Painter Battlefields Grass Green and Battlefield Rocks, as well as some basic clump foliage for filler! Does anyone like to use natural materials for basing!? C&C welcome! Thanks for looking!
  21. These mini's are sooooo tiny! AND adorable!! I did have some trouble really picking out details on the Fairy and the one I am referring to as "Ragdoll". The soft edges were a little confusing at first and the way the Fairy's body is positioned, it was hard to tell what was leg or clothing! lol But I looked on google to get some reference from others that had already tackled these. That was super helpful! After that I had painted these 3 up and set em aside for a while and worked on other things, not really sure what I wanted to do with them. Then a couple weeks ago I went on a Youtube binge watching soooo mannny videos about basing and came up with some cool ideas! (Stay tuned for more on that!) While cleaning up my bulletin board, a pushpin broke. The metal part, right off. I almost tossed it out, but I have a problem holding onto anything that might be useful later lol. But then I immediately imagined it as a spool of thread. *sketch idea, hold for later* Then I just had to figure out what mini to use and my husband suggested the ragdoll, I mean she is stitched together so ya! Then I did the Treant, those yellow bits on his base are foraged pieces of the invasive plant Virginia Creeper. We have some growing on our shed and as I was clearing it away I noticed how cool the little feets from their vines they use to climb look, so I snipped a ton of em, dried em out and hold onto them for neat terrain. These ones I chose to paint this yellow tone to accent the tree, without taking away or distracting from it! Lastly, was the fairy, I just felt her jamming out on top of a little pile of rocks would be cute lol. So I used cork as stone and little bits of clump foliage and some other cork stone and flock to decorate. Thanks for looking everyone! C&C always welcome!
  22. My OSL project -- 02682: Selmarina, Witch by Bob Ridolfi. My intention is to make the orb look like a flaming orange gem. Comments and criticism are welcome.
  23. This year is the year of giving miniatures as birthday gifts to the friends I game with. One of these fine fellows--my oldest and dearest friend--has a birthday in a couple weeks. He loves magic-users and is obsessed with Harry Potter, so I painted up a 25th anniversary Domur as a classic "Gandalf the Grey" style wizard for his present: Tried to layer the flames to give some interesting and pleasing texture. Let me know how I did. Also, given his love for all things Potter, I did my best to modify Domur's spellbook to a more familiar book cover... I'm actually surprised I could keep the brush steady enough for it to come across at all similar, to be honest.
  24. Finished my first serious mini since gettng back into painting. Had a lot fun with him!
