  1. Painted this one a while ago, but I've been waiting for my basing stamps (so I could make a fancier cobblestone base than my own mediocre skills could manage). I used a wash on his clothes to catch all the holes and rips in them, which resulted in him being a bit messier than I would like, but overall I think he looks fairly good. Any comments and criticisms are, as always, most appreciated.
  2. These are some 1:1200 Scale Steampunk Bombards. Prussian equipment. A human would be less than 2mm tall (1.5 actually) at this scale.
  3. The steampunk bug continues to bite hard! Decided to try one of my new Twisted minis, before I end up with an intimidatingly large pile of them, choose Dodger:- I hate it when they insist on making you cut those tiny, fragile pieces from great, big, giant lumps of sprue. As expected, removing him from the sprue cost him part of his scarf and coat, but I managed to do an okay job of repairing them. I also managed to assemble him slightly wrong looking at the official pics, apparently he's supposed to be aiming forward. Did his skin with a 1:1 Vallejo Dwarf Flesh/
  4. Well, sort of. My husband went a-prowling for steampunk-themed minis for my birthday earlier this month and found these 15mm armored cars for the game "All Quiet on the Martian Front." They are said to be based on Rolls Royce Spectres, circa. 1910-ish. While assembling them, the theme from "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" kept running through my head. Oh yes, assembly. There were no instructions. Grr. What I had were three baggies, each containing the following pieces (originally the tyres were on sprues): After a while I worked out that the chassis went over the running boards,
  5. Well, after lots of sweat, tears, and glaze upon glaze, I offer you "The Picnic." This small diorama contains miniatures from Bombshell Miniatures, specifically Victoriana and HLpR Bot. This piece, especially Victoriana, has been the most difficult for me so far. Essentially, the HLpR Bot is my 10th mini to complete, and Victoriana my 11th. They're 32mm scale, a first for me, and while HLpR's chunky build wasn't too difficult, the elongated (and smaller!) features of Victoriana gave me fits! I will be thankful to get back to Reaper miniatures.... The base itself is a small wooden disk purc
  6. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/vorpaliagames/instant-dungeon-tactical?ref=category_newest Interesting take on the dungeon terrain topic ... I'm probably set concerning steampunk and dungeon, but the forest might interest me - and some add-ons.
  7. From my Through the Looking Glass WIP thread I bring you Steampunk Alice:- Decent photography continues to elude me Had super elaborate basing plans for this one, but they fell apart mainly because I was too cheap to buy a tiny mirror or frame (they probably would've fallen apart any ways, but I will never know now). So I fell back on my usual cork based ruins, though hopefully the chessboard pattern gives off enough Wonderland vibes. On the plus side, I'm really pleased with her hair and I didn't do too terrible a job painting her apron white. As always, any comments
  8. Another day, another new WIP thread (at least I finished one this time). Having a go at my Guild of Harmony steampunk set, Dorothy still intimidates me so I'm starting with Alice:- Her feet were way too tiny to pin, so it's gone up the back of her dress (no idea how I'm going to attach her to a base, but that's a problem for future Aku-chan to solve). First attempt to paint her face didn't go very well (her eyes are tiny, it's going to be a theme with this one I think), after a scrub down the second attempt went better:- Skin is Vallejo Flat Flesh, given a Flesh Shade
  9. Here are some Guild minis that I painted up just a little while ago. I really felt that the skin tones should vary among the crew, and here are the results:
  10. Been desperate to start on my Wolsung stuff, unfortunately most of it needs to be based before I can start painting, and I can't base any of it because I'm waiting on some basing stamps (to make more awesome cobblestones than I can create with my current sculpting skills). But I did find a couple I could mount on corks, Ms. Suess and a Ghoul (both from the Ven Rier faction):- Currently waiting for the Primer to fully dry, so it'll probably be tomorrow before I make any more progress.
  11. Okay, if I were doing this properly, there are several stages I should have taken pictures at, but unfortunately this whole thing has been a "make it up as I go" business. Back-story: I'm running an Iron Kingdoms RPG campaign, and it mostly involves overland journeys punctuated by the occasional "dungeon" full of encounters. So far, the "dungeon" has typically been a big train full of cars (since Iron Kingdoms is a bit of a fantasy-steampunk hybrid), but now the PCs have reached the end of the rail and are venturing along an old road into the dreaded Thornwood. They'll need supplies, and
  12. In the continuing effort to clear my paint table I have finshed the third and final partially painted Westwind figure. Introducing a Victorian Housemaid with candle. This provided a nice opportunity for a bit of OSL. As always comments welcome.
  13. These are two Itar's Workshop terrain pieces. The coppoer coiled steampunk-looking one is IWS-IND-003, "Engine", and the squared-off dark futuristic one with the inner green glow is IWS-IND-001, "Power Generator". There's a WIP thread here. They are painted with metallics and straight colors. Here's the power generator with an old Ral Partha Shadowrun troll to show the scale.
  14. In the continuing saga of clearing my shelf of shame prior to starting on Bones 2 models I would like to present Professor Erasmus, a limited edition model that comes with the EoTD Rulebook. For some reason I lost the inspiration to finish this model a while ago, but have pressed on to get it done to tabletop standard. The model is on a base I have made myself. As always comments welcome.
  15. The latest completed mini from my Restoring the Balance WIP thread:- Still not really seeing the 'Oz' connection, but he's a cool mini nevertheless. The highlights on the back of his coat could've used a bit more work to get them blended a bit better, but overall I'm happy with how he turned out. Any comments and criticisms are, as always, greatly appreciated.
  16. I still have quite a few models in the nearly done pile and this is one of the first to be completed. Hopefully their will be a few more by the end of the year. This is Dr Watson (Sherlock is in the pile). I am impressed with the fact I actually painted his eyes. The models are by Westwind. He is based on one of my home made bases as well. As always comments welcome.
  17. 'This style of boxing has been past down the Armstrong line for generations!' This is one of the three Wolsung minis I picked up to see what they looked like in the 'flesh' before all the ones from their recent Kickstarter arrive. Struggled a bit figuring out how to paint his trousers and hat, but I think I did okay overall. Comments and critiques are welcome.
  18. Here's a Wyrmgear that I got tp paint up a little while ago. The mini really has tons of options for composition since he's made up of so many different metallic parts that could be picked out in many different formations. Here is version. And I've posted him to CMON for anyone who cares to vote.
  19. Having assembled Wyrmgear a while ago, I've been considering what to do with him. I thought of one thing ... Test: Reaper's Wyrmgear Meets Happy Seppuku on a Plinth ... and I tested it out.
  20. Now for something completely different.... I'm putting together a piece for my wife while I wait for paints to finish out Jazzy's elf/fairy/lutanist/whatev! The Bladesinger ended up being too large for Munchkin usage, and she and Jazzy never could decide who the piece belonged to anyway so... Here's to round #2! This will probably be a 2-piece game piece starring Victoriana and her robot companion/butler/keeper of the cheese HLpR Bot, both of Bombshell Miniatures. My wife loves all things Jane Austin, all things Victorain, all things Tea Time... You get the idea. She likes to tease me
  21. Sculpted by Shawn Lux from a design by Matt Beaumont. I assembled and painted this as a 21st wedding anniversary gift for my husband. Here's a scale shot with Reaper's 03135: B'thuhl, Bathalian Pirate. It's pretty big. It came with a resin head and body, separate hands, a puff of "steam" (which I left out as too difficult for me to pin), and the large smokestack; and metal ears, the small smokestack, and the whistle. This graffiti says "Om mani padme hum" in Sanskrit: I used just two metallic colors, a pure silver and a pure gold, layered with a lot of colors to

  23. A while back, in a somewhat controversial issue of the comic Jonah Hex, we met a character named Stove Belly Jack. Jack was a bad man, and like bad men in a Western comic, he did not survive the length of the comic he appeared in. He has not appeared since, bein' dead and all. However, there was something about the character I liked. In reality, the idea of wearing enough armor to stop small arms fire in the Old West is ludicrous; a bullet to the head would knock you stupid, armor or no armor, and why did he feel the need to weld a metal top hat to the helmet, anyway? The character was
  24. This may be one to watch, especially for the Steampunk fans out there.... Merdian Miniatures Steampunk Army
  25. SO I am trying to find out more of the style of this year's reapercon. I understand goth and steampunk, Dark carnival seems appropriate for sophie, And I have seen a couple of other images along the same lines, but what do I call it?? I have tried googling 'Dark Carnival" and have found a couple of similar corseted women and a scary clown, but mostly a website for a Halloween party. The works of Tim Burton seem to apply/ influence.......... What magic search words do I need to unlock the theme/motif?? Thanks
