  1. As a GM I often find the need to put in a new angle on various monsters that have been otherwise worn out through overuse. Here's one I thought of this morning (I don't plan to use it since I'm not going to be running D&D for a while). Mind Flayers are usually depicted as running a society based on enthralling other creatures through mind control and using them as a combination of labor force, food source, and breeding bodies. The life of the thralls is dull and horrible. But suppose that the touch of an Illithid tentacle to a brain stimulated vast ecstatic pleasure better than any sensation in life. Instead of mind controlled slaves, the thralls would be tentacle-touch addicts, eager to work for and please their Illithid masters. Illithid infiltration of cities would be like the wokrings of a drug cartel. The Mind Flayers would have armies of eager servants, begging to be recognized and given more contact. As for brain eating, with such a large population serving them, the Illithids can give the dying a day or so of pleasure then consume their brains. As for Cerebromorphosis. the Illithid breeding cycle wherein a larval flayer consumes a brain over the course of a week and takes over their body, that would be the greatest experience of all, one solid week of pure, unending bliss followed by death. The thralls would be vying for the honor and experience of it. This makes the job of adventurers trying to overthrow mind flayers even harder, because they have to contend with willing servants and secret addicts. For added measure one can make the Githyanki and the Githzerai immune to this effect provided they live lives of grim unhappiness.
  2. Once again its Sunday night, which means it's time to snap some pics of another Kingdom Death Survivor. When I started these I wasn't really planning on painting one per week, but if I keep it up that would be 52 minis/year. I would be happy with that. This time it's a female survivor, whose name I do not know but I'm sure Cash does. For this survivor I decided to try out a few paints from the Scale75 Blood and Fire set that I hadn't used yet. Her dress was basecoated in Fuchsia and shaded with Sunset Purple. To get some more practice with extreme highlighting I took some parts up to white. Her back is kinda flat so I decided to freehand in a spine, but I didn't reference how many vertebrae should fit so I'm almost assuredly wrong on that.
  3. I should start looking these survivor's names up so I have something to call them. Anyway over the weekend I painted the other male starting survivor from the game box. I did some experimenting with the shadow portion of the Scale75 flesh set to try and make a more realistic African skin tone that I had done with my fire giant. I don't know anyone with dreads so I attempted so googling to get a better idea of how the highlights work. In the end I still just made it up. Like the last one, he's not sealed yet so I can use these pics to see if anything needs a touch-up first. ... and I see that I haven't finished the lantern. Updated with a name thanks to Cash.
  4. My first KD:M mini has reached the almost complete stage so it's time to take some dual purpose pics! These are part show-off, part see if there's anything I want to touch-up before sealing images. Honestly I can see plenty that would need work if these KD minis were destined for anything higher than the tabletop, but they are instead on a collision course with greasy pizza fingers. For those that didn't see my posts in the assembly thread, I decided to attempt a cold light on white stones. To keep with that idea I attempted a blue light in the lantern. I initially painted his cloth white, but didn't like how it looked next to the stones and went for something completely different. I am now adding red to my list of colors that I can't photograph. It appears to be very intense in the photograph, but is not quite so overpowering in hand. Since he's not going to be entered into any online painting competition I'm inclined to leave it as is and not worry about how it photographs. Here's how the base looks from above, and pretty color accurate. Sometimes my camera does behave.
  5. I'd done a Bones bugbear back just after I started painting again. At the time I tried to match him to a bugbear I'd painted years before for Chainmail. When I did him I used a lot of Partha paints. Those paints have since been passed to a friend since I'm using mostly Reaper now, with some Army Painter, P3 and Vallejo thrown in. So I decided to figure out some current colours that came close. They aren't the best pics, but I've been sick, so I'm happy I just got them finished by the end of the month. Over all they came out close enough to the originals as to look like normal variations to me. These guys are a little less orangy yellow, and there hair isn't quite as red. But I think they will do nicely. I did them all with the same colour kilt thingy as I've got two (or is it 3) more of each, so will do two more "squads" with different colours.
  6. Hey folks! Finished up some Kobolds to bulk up the tribe... (WIP here) Swordsman: Archer: Spear man: Sorcerer's Apprentice: Group: These are for table top use, so while I tried to do a good job, I didn't try to push myself to hard... The king is still in progress... As always, comments welcome! 8) George
  7. Hello again, I've got nothing fancy here unfortunately but my speedily painted Battlelore armies. I had presented the demon lord previously (here) of the same game and these 30 figures had been sitting on my shelf for far too long, effectively eliminating my will and motivation to paint by, well, "not being painted"... So, after much meditation and deliberation (and buying a new pair of Winsor & Newton Series 7's) I finally got round to finishing them. And here is to whole lot: They will thus join their comrades in battle: But alas, my quest is not over since 30 more infantry and bowmen of the Chaos forces await my attention.. I shall return to report their likewise ascension to heavens shortly. Thanks for looking and as always your invaluable C&C will be much appreciated.
  8. So... I am painting these because I am insane: Two different approaches to getting this far, same outcome. Basecoat grey then wash, basecoat Brown Liner then drybrush. Hats are the Mook ID System with each pose/weapon getting a different coloured hat from others of the identical pose/kit. Shields will get some decoration and there will be some variation in leather, armour and cloth.
  9. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2087444096/stonehaven-peacekeepers-oath That was fast! It looks like Stonehaven is finally Kickstarting their oft-threatened wargame, including options for all their previously released miniatures!
  10. Hi! I made 8 orcs and goblins for umbra turris, polish skirmish game, its my second comission, and first greenskins in my career:). I would say they are made in tabletop + standard, it was about 16 hours of work.
  11. OK well it's time to try this again. Our last Kickstarter did not go the way we wanted it to, and we listened to out backers on why it did not work. We are now back at it again trying to get this off the gorund. This is a dream of ours and we are not going to stop till we get this thing on the gorund becasue we feel we have somethign very special here. So I want to reintroduce you to our Kickstarter MidKnight Heroes Season 0 Reboot! What is Reboot!? Reboot is where we went back to the drawing board and redesigned our idea. We changed for a set idea to a per miniature idea with our primary miniature Leonide as our main miniature. We added more value to you pledges and even redesigned two of our characters the was not very popular, Oda and Hanna. Our Funding level is much smaller, $2000 (Bare bones) that our last Kickstarter and we now offer free shipping to all US backers. Stop by and take a look and hep make our drream a reality! Our Miniatures will be sculpted by Robby Crawforth and Fancagne Didier and will be cast in metal. Our current Stretch goals: go to our website at www.midknighthereos.com to see all our stretch goals. Natakue and the MidKnight Hereos Team. "Thank you for supporting us!"
  12. Here are some quick tabletop paint jobs of the big Bones orcs. I am calling this my red orc squad, I will probably use blue or green accent color on my second, still unpainted set. Group shot with the previously finished Orc Berserker (77059) on the far left:
  13. Ok finally got the Spring Exchange mini completed. It has no base because Buckyballs requested it be non-based as he will just clear base it anyway for gaming. I am terrible at painting ladies and this one had a lot of fiddly bits. I didn't do a great job but for a tabletop gaming piece I think it will do the trick. I just hope my partner likes it. Better pics taken with an actual camera! Original pics from the cell phone using the light box.
  14. Hi ! Just for fun, a old Heroquest mini tabletop :) (I loveeee oldies mini ;))
  15. Hi folks, My name is Ruben Segura, producer of Koti Games, a company founded by an enthusiastic group of professional entrepreneurs. Together, we have over 30 years’ experience working in leading companies in the videogame industry. Since we all love games, we have some exciting news that we believe you might consider interesting. We will be soon launching our next project: Battle Arena Show, an innovative board game inspired by the style of MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) videogames. At April 7th the Battle Arena Show's Kickstarter campaign will be launched. Battle Arena Show is a multiplayer strategy board game that takes place in an alternative reality, where the discovery of time travel has permitted unprecedented technological advances. This board game uses miniatures to recreate a morbid reality show, in which two teams battle to compete for the coveted title of Battle Arena Master. Battle Arena Show brings the gameplay mechanics of the MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) PC games, like League of Legends or DOTA 2, to your table. 2 to 6 players divided in 2 teams will compete to destroy the enemy base. Each player will control one or more heroes and the team will receive the help of their minions to achieve the victory. You can take a quick look at our project by watching the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9HUQKYVyyo Also, we are running a giveaway now and if you want to win a copy of Battle Arena Show, you can visit the following link: https://gleam.io/fb/9KyPn Good luck! You can find much more information in our web site and Facebook's fan page: http://www.battlearenashow.com https://www.facebook.com/battlearenashow We hope you like the project
  16. So I have cleaned and stowed my painting desk and it is no longer a demotivational mess that sucks away my will to paint. So what to do with my new found inspiration? Finish up a couple of pieces from my now defunct WIP thread. The Bathalian I started at a Reaper Paint and Take at Pax East, in 2013. It sat staring at me because I cold remember what paint colors were on the table and what colors and ratios used to mix some of the different shades. I would pull it out when I was avoiding working on other minis at paint days and would inevitably get gold on the blue or blue on the pink and it soon became one permanent touch up. Finally I bit the bullet and am calling it done. Damien, I painted to represent my Eldritch Pact Warlock in a now defunct 4E game. As warlocks don't use staffs, a couple of clips later and he now has a very trendy rod, or a really big wand. Maybe he is overcompensating. Either way, Damien was usually the mini I'd avoid working on when I would pick up the Bathalian. So some touch up and picking the necklace with some Noir Black and Splintered Bone and e was good enough to sit in a case in the unlikely vent that the game restarts. Unlikely as the DM is in Deigo Garcia. Here is to getting some more bench queens off of my shelf of shame.
  17. So this is probably my least favorite mini I've produced since getting back into the hobby. I'm really really really bad at browns for some reason, which I think is due to 98 percent of my paints being Vallejo or Reaper (easy to thin and mix), and all my browns being GW. Overall, not my best work, and pretty sloppy. I've also been considering adding actual nice bases to these models instead of these boring Brocolli bases, which I think might add a bit of life to them. Tell me what you think!
  18. Not sure if this guy was core, or an add-on. I did get rather a lot of add-ons. This here is, again, a fairly fast job designed to get it fairly nicely done. I don't actually game much, but this might be considered "tabletop". As for most of my paint jobs, this has drybrushing, layering, wet blending, "Les Wash Recipe Without the Ink" washes, and Army Painter Ink washes. And of course some colour mixing on the brush... because I paint like Derek Schubert... in that I mix colours on the brush ;) Meet Driftwood Fishskinner. Driftwood is really the name of his club, made from one water-bleached, water-stained trunk and the rusty nails out of sunken riverboats. Fishskinner is the name the troll here got when he started wearing a carp-hide as a loin cloth. Recently, given his somewhat successful reign of terror along Dead Man's Bend - one of nine stretches of channel so named, where the river winds slowly through the marsh and trade-boats often come to grief - he has sought a more rightly terrifying name, hence the fresh-this-week wolf skin. Everyone still calls him Fish-Skinner. It's not fair.
  19. This stuff is probably WAY beneath the skill level of most people here, but I decided to put up a series of basic YouTube videos about getting minis tabletop-ready. I'm still fiddling with the best format and setup to use. The first couple are online now: Episode 1
  20. I found this guy in the clearance bin at my FLGS. When I started painting him, I decided he was more Ogre like than Troll for my campaigns. And with the thorny back he must be some kind of demon/devil spawned version so I went red-skinned. The skin is patchy in places with a ruddy orange. And I decided on the eye style after watching an episode of FaceOff on Syfy. He's painted tabletop level IMO and using washes over solids with some highlighting. I used a micro pen to create some veining effects on his skin. The wood club has been painted to resemble a piece of a stalactite/stalagmite to keep the cave feeling of the base. The figure is covered in a matte varnish for toughness. I just finally picked up a can of Dullcote to bring the shine back down. I am comfortable with the piece as is for the players to be afraid of but C&C is always welcome and will be applied going forward. And yes, I know, better pics will help. I have a camera coming for Christmas. To see additional photos (like a WIP) check out either the Facebook Album or Google+ Post.
  21. As many of you may know by now, I'm the "Fiasco Master" of ReaperCon and I want to humbly thank all of my many players for sitting down at a table and playing their hands at Fiasco. There were so many great stories woven at those tables, I would love it if the players would regale us with their recolections of their game sessions. As the one who simply brings the books and materials and sort of just guides players though the very light rules of the game, I enjoy sitting back and listening to the radio dramas that emminate out of the players' imaginations. My only regret is at the "Fiasco After Dark" session is that I was running from table to table and never really got the full lowdown on all three tables. I'd love to know how that office building caught on fire, or how Pickle ended up in jail, or why the lovely barmaid was buried in the mines under the town, or if those kids ever really did get their bicycles. So please, take a time to share your stories and show people how crazy and creative Fiasco can be!
  22. I have just started work on (2) tabletop terrain game pieces...(1) Is a small jungle waterfall (8"x5")...(2) Is a small secluded nook (4"x4"). Waterfall piece...will be the standard piece where the adventure group/characters...tend to their needs...taking their baths...resupply their waterskins...water their animals (if they have any)...wash their clothes...etc. I am working on the major construction of the piece...the small details will come later. This piece also shows my usage of ceiling tile (to construct my terrain pieces); in this case...you can see the multi-layer rise...you can also see my usage of the plaster rocks that I cast myself...as well as the wide assortment of ferns, twigs, branches and ground grasses. Secluded spot piece...will be a small grass & flower area for private interaction...(remember that my game/realm is an all adult game). Hope you like these first photos of this/these two terrain projects. Paul (Catdancer)
  23. Fellow hobbyists, tabletop gamers, and rpg fans, Firstly I'd like to introduce myself as I am new to the forums. My name is Paul and i like painting and building miniatures and terrain along with designing game systems. If anyone is on the miniwargaming forums, board of the living lead, dakka dakka, or rpg net i go by the same name [oddeye]. This may be a unusual post in the WIP section as most people are posting up only painted miniatures, I am posting up a work in progress of a entire game that I have been creating in my free time over the last 8 months (100% free to download, i do ask for any feedback that you may have though so i can improve on the rules, link is provided below). As the title states my game is based around surviving hordes of zombies with many different armies available with a fantasy and modern version, some armies available to play are: us army, ww2 wehrmact, survivors, knights, hordes of undead, zombies, pirates, dragons, and samurai just to name a few. There are many pictures of fully painted miniatures, custom terrain and artwork along with some youtube videos already available for your viewing pleasure. I am also working on a full role playing pen and paper version as well based off the table top war game versions. You can download the rules here for free and there is also a link to scribed.com to view the rules online if you don't want to download. There are also many posts with pictures and miniature links in the other sections of the community page. https://plus.google.com/communities/108863897726135327206/stream/96e11d1b-6e44-4604-9860-5929bcc4f8ac Youtube channel with videos https://www.youtube.com/user/Scheitelpunkt If you are interesting in joining the google community or subbing to the youtube channel feel free to do so, I really am looking for good feedback, comments, and ideas to help improve the game system and rule book. I appreciate all feedback good or bad! Thanks and happy gaming!
  24. Here are the three most recent things I painted. I painted each of them in about an hour. I didn't prep the minis at all so there are plenty of mold lines.
