  1. Here's some love for the little guys, because it isn't all about the big bads. A gang of nasty, orangey kobolds! -E.E.
  2. Funny how at an early stage of painting things get really messy, then eventually come together. This is where I'm at now, having come from this: which is a photo of the metal version, though the one I'm painting is plastic. The details survived surprisingly well for a first-generation Bones casting. I wanted to get this started before I was too far along and just shot with my built-in webcam that does not like to shoot macro. Better photos when I don't feel so rushed. I feel I might be oversharing a fair bit here.
  3. My latest project, complete. You can find the WIP thread here. I did an experiment, using ridges of dirt flocking to hold in water effects. It actually worked out reasonably well, though next time I'll know to build up the rest of the base more. I also decided this one was female, on the basis that she's noticeably larger than the other two. I'm rather happy with how the shield came out here. It looked a bit like a horseshoe crab to me, so I wanted to make it look nice and chitinous, as though she tore it from the back of some great swamp arthropod. My first freehand. It was supposed to be an anchor-shaped tattoo to start with, but I messed that up, and decided to just go with an abstract design. I cheated on the pupils for these guys. I bought a micron pen, and it worked out rather well. I probably would have gone with a solid color for the eyes, otherwise. This was the only one to have any sort of decoration on his integral base. The others are pure broccoli, but he's got a little plant on his. Gave it a nice pale green color to contrast with his scales. The color is actually a mystery paint Reaper sent me. I actually have two bottles of the stuff, from two orders from around the same time. I'll be sad when it runs out. It's a very nice color. And here we have his turtleshell shield. I actually looked up pictures of real turtles and cobbled together characteristics of several species for the color selection and pattern. And here's the whole happy family, together. Touching, really.
  4. So on my quest to finish up this set of four elves, I just completed the sea elf last night. I don't say this too often, but I think I'm really glad the way this one turned out, at least colorwise, as I was using a very limited color palette and was using sea-oriented colors that Reaper makes, like Seafoam Blue, Marine Teal, Clouded Sea, which are paints that I bought a while back but really haven't taken advantage of. With this color scheme in mind I may very well try to do some other aquatically themed figures in the near future. Now out of this set 11-422 from way back in the day I've got one more figure left, a drow assassin, who will be up next as soon as I finish him.
  5. I can almost smell how bad this guy reeks.. and that greasy hair ugh.
  6. Censored for your virgin eyes. I really like these classic bugbears. I don't know that they needed to include monster "junk" but it makes it a conversation piece.( I had to paint that thing) ha. I did a comparison picture to the modern bugbear.
  7. Finished up Sluggort, a Darksword DiTerlizzi mini. The studio paintjob was green, but I thought I'd go with a more Caucasian skin tone, with a touch of jaundice and various other skin conditions. Sometimes, a goblin just needs to relax among the tall grass and wildflowers.
  8. I had a the fortunate opportunity to paint a piece for Teskeria. I began the project with a concept of a shifter type character, a werecat. Searching through Reapers catalog of minis, I came upon this one. It clicked. And so, Thirysia was born. I had a lot of fun painting these two. I can not, however, take credit for the basing idea. During the Spring Mini Exchange, I received a ranger/wolf combo from Guildenstern that was done similarly. I liked the idea so much, that I used it for this one. I felt it fit too well not to. Thiryrsia was once a respected and noted ranger among the Shadowvale Elves, but a chance encounter would forever change her. Seeing her as cursed, she was cast out of the community, and left to fend for herself. Over time, she learned to control her shifting, and is no longer bound by cycles. With her Redmane companion, Xythis, she stalks the Shadowvale Forest as its most feared and fearsome protector. Here she is, Thirysia, Redmane Werecat, and Xythis her Redmane companion. (Note, the Redmane's are an elven hunting cat I use in my homebrew campaign.) CAH
  9. Originally she was just a test case for OSL off the lantern and spear blade. I then tried using some interference paints to see if they'd work better, and, well... they took over the piece. So dynamic lighting yes, OSL not really. But it's interesting how with interference paints, you can paint highlights that only show up when light strikes them from a specific angle, usually roughly back towards the light source, which for minis, tends to be just above the viewing position. Also of note, my camera was going insane trying to photograph this. I don't think it likes light reflecting off the mica straight into the sensor.
  10. A bit of work on my massive backlog of Bones, while I consider how I want to base Excelsy. Couldn't resist doing a little bit of conversion work. Anyways, dual source strong OSL is kicking my tail, and also color identity is almost completely gone. I might knock it back to weak OSL just so I can splash more color into the mini. And also so I can do the sheer fabric effects that I wanted to paint. Sheer fabric is always fun to do.
  11. So here are two more dwarves from Ral Partha's old Fantasy Collectors Series that will eventually be in the next Ral Partha Kickstarter, hopefully coming out sometime this month. A crossbowman and a spearman, nice little figures. Like the last ones I did, they are really pretty small. The square bases they find themselves upon are 20 mm bases.
  12. This week I finished up the last of the Town Guard from the Bones II, Expansion 2, "Town Guard" set, by painting the Spearman figure. There's been a number of these posted here of late, so I thought I'd add mine to the forum as well. :) His spear was all bent out of shape, and I tried the usual Bones boiling water straightening method to get it right again, but just wasn't able to get it perfectly straight. While I don't mind a little "wonkiness" in a wizards staff, I felt the spear really needed to be straight. So, I replaced the Bones spear shaft with one made from a round toothpick. It was no problem slicing off the original shaft, drilling through the hand, and drilling a small indent in the bottom of the spear head, and then gluing it all back together again with Gorilla Superglue. I then did a simple tabletop paint-job on him, added an old Space Marine transfer to the shield, and based him for use with Frostgrave. As always, C & C welcome.
  13. I've had these for many, many years. I am pretty sure they are reaper minis, but I can not find any reference to these particular kobolds when I search. They are very small, here is a scale pic next to a genestealer:
  14. Hello! This is the first real mini I've ever painted (aside from touching up a kobold I got off of Ebay), so I figured I'd hit the forums for some feedback! This took me about 5-6 hours (with some minor cooking and plenty of youtube watching going on in the background). I added some more ground onto the base with some sculpting epoxy, gave it a quick coat of paint, and then covered it with some tea and little plants I made out of some twine with sand for the flowers. I may touch up the edges with some more tea or black paint, as I didn't quite cover them up all the way. Her face is kinda derpy, I definitely need practice with eyes. I also need to straighten out her spear again, she got knocked over and it bent a little. Any feedback or advice is greatly welcomed!
  15. Hello there Reaper pips. This is my third try using NMM technique. I would greatly welcome any critiques to help me improve. As usual please be as brutally honest as possible as it is not possible to hurt my feelings. Thank you very much in advance.
  16. Woldvagner the Elder from Red Box Games. I have stared to delve into my RBG collection. I'm moderately happy with how this figure turned out. I really need to work on the eyes for future RBG miniatures. I feel that something might be missing but I can't put my finger on it.
  17. My obsession with Warlord dwarves continues with Jason Wiebe's Kragmarr Guard. Like this guy a lot, pretty simple and dwarfy. Kept with my usual dwarf-soldier-type blue. Got a little carried away with the shield, heh, but figured I might as well have some fun. Thanks for looking!
  18. Hi !!! A little mini from Hasslefree paint for a friend this night (i'm insomniac :( ...) Sorry for the bad pictures :
  19. I drew Sirithiliel as my exchange partner (and by coincidence, I was her partner as well). She wanted a druid or a monk, and I had been wanting to paint Tobias here for a while. He's got a very dynamic pose, and actually is kind of out-of-place among other Reaper minis, IMO. The sculpt is interesting and quite cool, but also kind of weird after working with it for a while - how did his cloak get out in front of him? where's the other half of his bow? what's that green thing next to the quiver? I think the sculptor might be the guy behind Tin Man Miniatures - same name, at least. I felt like playing around with my Dark Elf skin triad, but it'd be a stretch to paint him as a drow, so instead I am calling him a "night elf." I also knew there was going to be a lot of brown and green on him, so I wanted something that would stand out a bit more than normal the normal caucasian/blonde elf combo. Plus, I keep asking people to do non-caucasian skin-tones, so I should do so as well. I'm pretty happy with the greens, but less so with the browns - the browns were done during "the slog." The greens have fluorescent green mixed into the highlights, so they really look like they're glowing.
  20. Finally painted a Bones 2 mini! . . . but it was just a skeleton. Also some Bones 1 rats. Thanks for looking!
  21. Overlords Onyx Phalanx: 14391 Sculpted by Tobb Harris Work In Progress Thread __________________________________________________ The Overlord Onyx Phalanx is done in True Metallic Metal Style. This was my first attempt at flocking. Although it turned out alright I have learned not to use super glue for that process... Thanks for all your support Reaper Community. :) C&C Welcome.
  22. So I finished the Bones version of Vanja. I also tried a few backdrops ( just printouts from the internet). Hope you like her. EDIT: forgot to mention this earlier, don't know if it shows well in the pics. The armor is red mixed with silver to get a metallic look, later i added more silver for the highlight parts. And with a more neutral back drop. I'm new to this...must make a lightbox soon. These were made in the garden.
  23. So I had to repost my work due to account crash. Currently I'm working on this and some Undead. Hopefully she will be done soon. I mixed red with metallics for the armour. She wears a Cloack of a slain giant snake. And I try a bit of marble on the base. If I can pull it off. Tips hints welcome..
  24. Finally got this one off my 'shelf of shame'. Pretty pleased with him overall, could've used a little more metallics on his rusty spearhead though. Any comments and criticisms are, as always most appreciated.
