  1. Next up another half-orc, and purposefully so this time. Derek the Dim, from Tre Manor's Red Box Games. He was an accidental acquisition, sent by mistake. Tre was kind enough to let me keep him. He wasn't on my radar at all during the Kickstarter, but I fell in love a little, honestly, when I saw him in person. More of my home-brewed orc-ish skin tone on this, though I left him unwashed (heh). Only real thing with which I managed to tickle myself on this one was the rope (him and on Dirk, soon to be posted, both). Don't think it shows in the crappy pictures well, but it actually turned out great on these guys. Thanks for looking. Feel free to comment and critique and what's it alls it.
  2. Ullr the Red, sculpted by Tre Manor. Red Box Games. Njorn faction, if I'm not misremembering. One of my favorite minis pretty much evar. Had a ton of fun with him, was really happy how he turned out. Thanks for looking. Suggestions and so on welcome.
  3. Hjordisa Ymirsdottir from Red Box Games. One more Tre Manor sculpt. I struggled to get a good photo as the figure is quite small. I'm really satisfied with the paintjob.
  4. Hey friends, I haven't posted any completed pictures of figures in at least a month, but I've been busy working and doing WIP stuff in the GROUP Red Box Games thread. I decided to go ahead and post some 'finished' pictures. Included are (not sequentially): 1) Ingvar the Brash 2) Grim Garrett 3) The Bastard Hughbert 4) Shadowblade Reyviande 5) Bad Betty 6) Red Meghan Reyviande, Betty and Meghan are going to be in a diorama that I bring to ReaperCon; these will all be there.
  5. Brynjar Thorir from Red Box Games. Another atempt to cure my "tre-manor-indimitating-sculpts"-phobia. I'm trying to finally cure it this year. I'm not sold on my coloring but overall I'm satisfied with the result.
  6. Boldverk the Bold from Red Box Games. I struggled to get good photos and eventually had to settle for these. Lately I’ve been trying to move away from my mandatory use of black lining. A strange thing is that I noticed today that a part of the face had been smudged with sealer. I'm trying to restore it but I sadly I think it's a lost cause. On the bright side it's a good excuse to buy another RGB mini :)
  7. I sort of slid this guy to the front of my painting queue as soon as I got my kickstarter package. >_> This is one of the mini's that unfortunately the spray primer I was using decided to get fluffy on. Sanded it down as best I could and soldiered on. He's going to get his debut at my gaming table as an NPC. Pics under the spoiler tag.
  8. THE BATTLE OF THE CHAMPIONS Figures: Unarmored Hordesman & Armored Hordesman Manufacturer: Red Box Games Base: WoldStand Material: Trollcast (Resin) WIP Thread Located here. Here's the Gallery to see what everyone did Here's the Poll - Vote for your top 3 and only vote one time. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- They stood staring each other down in the middle of the bloody and muddy battlefield, rain pouring and slicking everything in sight. The two champions, their armies spread out behind them screaming at the tops of their lungs. The champions covered in blood and gore from those pathetic fools who had stood before them. It came down to this, to this one moment in time... to this last battle between them to decide the war... They circled each other slowly, sized each other up. The axes-wielding champion, calculating and calm, takes a deep breath, looks over to the large rock to his right and grins wickedly to himself. The armored champion raises his weapon and plays to his crowd of warriors, supremely confident in his opponent's impending demise. Suddenly, they both rush forward with blood curdling war-cries to their gods to do battle! This was a really fun project which I am entering into the RBG contest over on the WAMP forum and it is being sponsored by Tre Manor himself. Thank you to everyone in the WIP thread for giving me honest feedback and great ideas, I used a lot of them on these figures and couldn't have done it without you. Special thanks goes out to Thrym as he supplied me with the awesome base from his new online store called "WoldStand." Comments and Critiques are welcomed and appreciated! ETA: Collage for the Contest that Thrym was nice enough to help me with.
  9. To stay within the new Forum rules/guidelines for WIP threads, I'm starting this one up for a vignette I'm working on as part of a RBG contest sponsored by Tre Manor on another forum. These are made from "troll cast" which is a resin-like material as far as I understand it, both detailed extremely well, but the material is very very brittle. I've broken 2 ankles so far, so I'm being extremely careful with them. Anyhow, here we go with the Unarmored Hordesman and the Armored Hordesman! At this point, I decided I wanted the Unarmored to have African American skin tones, so I did a bit of research, used the Reaper power palette and went ahead with these 5 colors. So far he's gotten the base of Ruddy Leather and then I went over it a few times with a mix of 1:1 Ruddy Leather and Intense Brown. More pics as I do more updates. C&C are welcomed and appreciated, thanks for looking!
  10. While Red Box Games is my favorite miniature line the trend is that I just buy the miniatures without painting them. Frankly because they scare me. The detail is smaller than what I'm used to and I'm afraid to screw it up. It's much easier to pick up and paint other miniatures because it doesn't really matter as much if I do screw them up :) But every once in a while I do gather enough courage to pick one up and finish it. Like Birgir the dvergr. I painted this for a DnD one shot at the local gaming store. I didn't know if it would be using miniatures (and it didn't) but if it did I wanted to make sure that I had a miniature to represent the premade characters. I'm very pleased with the result even if I didn't get to use him. I'm sure there will be other opportunities.

It's much easier to pick up and paint other miniatures because it doesn't really matter as much if I do screw them up :) But every once in a while I do gather enough courage to pick one up and finish it. I painted this one because of the same reason I painted Birgir. I was going to participate in a DnD one shot at the local gaming store. I didn't know if it would be using miniatures (and it didn't) but if it did I wanted to make sure that I had a miniature to represent the premade characters. I'm mildly happy with how she turned out. I'm pleased with the armor but I feel that the overall paintjob looks a bit dirty. I wasn't sure what colors to paint her from the start and she suffered a lot of restarts. But she's better than the unpainted version from a few days ago so that's a plus :)
  12. I took a break from Bones to assemble, prime and paint these astoundingly beautiful undead boogeymen. Assembly was a pain because, while it was actually very simple, Tre sculpts smaller than I can SEE. As a result there was some ham-fisted smooshing, and two of these guys got Bones swords just to make it easier. These were all primed with a medley of Reaper Black Primer and Vallejo Airbrush Black Primer, all brushed on. Currently I prefer the Vallejo, just because it goes on with no thinning, quick and easy. Armour was lightly drybrushed with API Greedy Gold, trying for a bronze or gilt ancient grave-goods look. Their frilly frocks, ah, robes, were variously washed, glazed, drybrushed or wet-blended, each colour got a different treatment, all MSPs. I am working my way through a quick-and-dirty OSL for "glowing ghostly bones" using MSP Lemon Yellow, Moth Green, and Pale Green. Some of the robes got a new treatment, using GnG KS1 brushes. These have decent quality sable in a crappy quality brush, so they're quite nice for priming, drybrushing, and stippling. I used stippling as part of the "illusion of blending" on the green robes, which you can't see very well, but it worked nicely.
  13. Finally completed this diorama I've been working on. I'm pretty well pleased with it, though I've debated adding some more wild grass to the setup to make it more wilderness. I had a lot of fun making it, the only downside is I had so much fun with it and now I'm eager to start another project but I'm not sure what to paint next! I wish I had a better camera than my smart phone and a better place to take photos, so these will have to do!
  14. So after my efforts of 17 minis in March I'm off to a slow start in April just because of a week's holiday in Middle Earth (aka New Zealand). Finished minis: 89012: Lem, Iconic Bard (Reaper) 1x CSM-026 Lemures (Center Stage Miniatures) 77092: Elquin, High Elf Adventurer (Reaper) The Girl (Bombshell Miniatures) Gnome Priest (Stonehaven) 77173: Terezinya, Bonepander Wizard (Reaper) 77160: Judas Bloodspire, Vampire (Reaper) 77196: Familiars 2 - Fire Spirit (Reaper) 3 Bones Lizardmen (Reaper)
  15. Hi all, here's another WIP that I've started. These are two miniatures I received from two separate Red Box Games kickstarters. A barbarian and an orc. Here they are primed and ready for some paint. Front view Skin Base Coat and Fur Base Coat on the barbarian, and the still drying skin on the orc The orc brute is a slight conversion, I used one of the spare heads from the orc warlord on the head of the orc brute for a more menacing look. I can't wait to get this orc painted up because I can just envision him dragging that cruel and jagged blade on the ground as he approaches a foe (probably the barbarian!) Thanks for looking! I'm hoping you enjoy the ride as I work through this duo during the week.
  16. Here's Svetlana, a limited edition Kickstarter mini from Tre's first KS. My first attempt at a more display like wood base, also my first use of grass (blah). Bark rocks, might be cherry, not my usual ash (I just hunt around the woodpile mostly). Very enjoyable sculpt to paint despite the casting issues. WIP here.
  17. I've finally been able to make a small dent on my pile of unpainted Red Box Games miniatures. RGB are by far my favorites but at the same time I'm kind of intimidated by the detail so when it comes time to paint I pick up a miniature from another brand. But once in a while I do finish one, and yesterday was one of those times. I finished the miniature Ragnar of Utherby and I'm quite pleased with the result.
