    The Dark Swamp - Bones Diorama

    Hi all, I per my habit, I painted my bones mini by batch, and the theme for this one was "the dark swamp". I imagined that the swamp was plagued by a new aquatic creature. So the current inhabitants of the swamp (Troll, frogmen and turlemen) banded together to rid the pond from this thing. (As you can tell, writing fluff is not my forte...) And a few pics of the troll: The tree was sulpted in clay, the base of the scenery is insulation foam, the vegetation is taken from dollar store easter decor... C&C welcome

    Painted Ice Troll (77344) Bones II

    This week I completed the Ice Troll from the Bones II "Expansion Pack I". I'm particularly pleased with how his face came out. For the step-by-step painting write-up, please see my Bones painting blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/06/ice-troll-bones-ii-figure.html

    Spring 2015 Exchange minis

    The two minis below are what I did for my Spring Exchange Partner FireElemental . Since they have now been received I can post some pictures for the rest of you to enjoy... hopefully! I apologize in advance for the picture quality... First is 60007 SinSpawn sculpted by Derek Schubert Followed by the ever dangerous Pathfinder Troll 60021 sculpted by Jason Wiebe.. and he looks hungry! Robinh
  10. My Icingstead army for Warlord requires two Ice Trolls. For the first one, I used the 03407 Hellborn Troll, sculpted by Ben Siens, as recommended. I also used the awesome paintjob by Michael Genet as inspiration. The Gargoyle Leader, also sculpted by Ben Siens, has a similar pose to the Hellborn Troll. I sculpted a scaly back to conceal the wing insertion tabs, and to help match the style of his larger buddy. To make up for some of the size difference, I put him on a large rock. Here they are together. The Hellborn Troll with his mini me.

    Uskuluz Greyhide: 14455

    Uskuluz Greyhide THE WIP: 14455 Uskuluz Greyhide "When you crawl upon a deep dungeon be weary of the Greyhide troll. The evil he summons will shake you to your bones. Atop his staff is a creature of the dark spawn legion; an insect of time long past. Adorn upon him are relics and rings of curious adventures... Do no go looking for the Greyhide and do not have your thoughts dwell on him... He will summon you and with a maddening fury you will seek him..."

    14455: Uskuluz Greyhide

    Started work on this Uskuluz Greyhide about 85% of the way through Anval Thricedamned. I think you all will like this progression everyone. Please let me know of some color choice you might think for the bits and bobs hanging off of him. ___________________________________________ The base is done with spackle, sand and some old pieces from a Reaper figure WAY back in the day. 10points if you can figure it out! C&C Welome!
  13. This is an old-school heavy-metal style Shadowrun gang member cyber troll, Lord Torgo, formerly of Ral Partha, now sold by Iron Wind Metals, both with the stock number 20-590. Which is to say, he's a cyberpunk miniature from a 1990s vision of the near future full of dystopian tech and magical mutations. He's a huge mutant with horns. Discussion of the figure to follow after the pictures (which now that I see them large are looking in need of some improvement). I did some playing around with texture and color and light effects here. The figure had some interesting details and surface types. Like all old Ral Partha figures, it has an integral base, in this case sculpted paving with some litter already on it. This figure was a pain and a half to assemble. The supplied chain was too short* and needed to be replaced (but I thought a real chain looked better anyway). The axe on his back is ridiculously top-heavy and attaches at two small points well below the center of balance; I added a wire "staple" to help hold it on. I was not able to find any other images of this figure painted online. It might be because It might be because he is so absurdly over the top heavy metal. Or it could be because he is rather fiddly, fragile, and difficult to assemble. The figure is front-heavy and on a narrow base, making it prone to tipping forward, and it hunches forward so it's hard to see the figure properly from a normal gamer's above the table perspective. A WIP thread, covering this figure, Reaper's "50287: Caine, Cyber-Troll," and several other old Ral Partha Shadowrun figures, can be found here. There are other Show Off threads for the companion piece Shadowrunners (mostly trolls): Reaper's own Caine, Cyber-Troll, a Troll woman from Wolfram's Gang, a Wolfram's gang troll with tattoos, an Oni bouncer, a cyber-troll in reflective armor, and an ork woman street samurai. *This was cached on Google but seems to have vanished in the meantime, which is why I copied it rather than linking. I'm not the only one who found the chain too short:

    Shadowrun Oni Troll Bouncer

    This was one of several old Ral Partha Shadowrun figures I painted recently. I liked this one because he was just bizarre. He's sold as a troll bouncer. He's clearly based on classic Japanese oni, so I painted him up like one. The paint is all matte; the effects on the back of the hair are paint, not shine. Other Shadowrunners painted at the same time include: Reaper's own Caine, Cyber-Troll, a Troll woman from Wolfram's Gang, a Wolfram's gang troll with tattoos, an ork woman street samurai, a cyber troll with reflective armor, and the unbelievably over-the-top Lord Torgo.
  15. This is one of the old Ral Partha Shadowrun figures I painted up last fall, an actual cyber troll with cyber armor and implants. I was trying for an effect of shiny armor at night with multicolored reflections from different directions. Not sure how successful I was. The other Shadowrunners have other Show Off threads: Reaper's own Caine, Cyber-Troll, a Troll woman from Wolfram's Gang, a Wolfram's gang troll with tattoos, an ork woman street samurai, an Oni bouncer, and the unbelievably over-the-top Lord Torgo.
  16. Time for a little something different. I've now got a PLA 3d printer, and I'm enjoying it so far. Printed out a reindeer finger puppet and a die (and another after the first one failed at almost the end). Then printed out a reverse engineered dish washer handle cap. Then corrected the CAD model and printed out a second one. Then another correction and two final ones. Then corrected the CAD, but gave up on printing out new ones because it was close enough. Then I got into the meat of what I really bought it for. HOBBY. My first target was the Stone Troll that is from www.mini2print.com. Here's a link to the CMON thread that m2p started to announce it, in case you're interested in some other shots of it. I was asked on another Reaper thread how the material sands. And, honestly, I didn't know. But I've got two dish washer handle caps that are destined to be junked, or at least re-purposed as something. Prefect timing then. I didn't really think about photos until after I'd done all the testing, so I'll explain things as we go and you might have to look back every now and then. Let's start with the materials we've got. From L-R, Cap #2, the Stone Troll, Sir Forscale (Garrick The Bold), and Cap #1 And for what I have on hand to try a little finishing work: a felt disk, a grinding bit, and a poofy... thing. Cap #1 was an attempt at using gesso and milliput to fill in the lines and such. It's not working as the gesso wasn't thick enough and the milliput didn't cure, so we'll skip him. On to Cap #2! This was done in several stages, so I'll explain that first and you'll see the results of all of that in the above picture. The manual doesn't recommend high speed sanding. I haven't actually tried low speed sanding other than by hand. But that's stage 4ish. A google search of sanding PLA found me on a jewelry making website, and several there recommended cloth disks. I'm not sure that it's the same, but I used a felt disk on the right half of the above cap. And it worked. But I wouldn't call it sanding, but more of a blending. I think it was heating the ridges up to a plastic stage (go figure) and then smeared them. Which works. It's going to take a bit of practice if I want to continue to use that technique. It'll be interesting to try to go around curved surfaces, but for flat panels I think it's fine. At this point, I brushed on some brown liner from Reaper. That's what a lot of people are using to "prime" Bones, so figured it might work here. I think that PLA is a little more accepting of acrylic paint that Bones, so that'll be a plus. Then I did some actual sanding with some 180 grit foam sanding files, first on the right side and then on the as-untouched left. That got things really very smooth. It still has that badly mislaid layer, the dark line roughly a third up from the bottom. Now some fresh milliput might be able to fill in the crack. I'm also thinking about getting some liquid greenstuff. I may just go get some automotive putty, as the "mini" I'm planning on building, a true-engineered CAV drop ship, is going to be fairly large. I may wind up needing that much and don't want to break my wallet. One of the odd things is that the putty I apply will probably cost more than the PLA filament. I do have one more test to do, and that's the "low speed" sanding with a Dremel. I figure if I can learn to do it that way, it'll help out a lot, especially with the little surfaces. Speaking of which, let's look at what I'm facing on the Stone Troll. Below are the three major areas that I'm going to be dealing with. For reference, I did NOT print this at the highest resolution that I could, which is 100 micron layers (.100 mm, .004 inch). I did it in 150 microns instead, and I think I'm happy that I did that. That decreases the time for it to build, and thus the amount of time I have to babysit it. While it was building the legs, the edges of them curled up and the print nozzle would knock them each time. I think that's happened a few times, which results in it pulling the object off of the build tape. At that point, it's into the reject bin for it. Happened once on this figure, and on a die. As you can maybe see, there's a couple of layers that didn't line up right, similar to what happened on the dish washer cap. I believe the XY resolution is .150 microns regardless of what the layer thickness is. Those will have to be removed. There are curls and bubbles scattered amount, debris left from the print nozzle and/or PLA defects. Those are pretty common. The big thing I'll have to work out is the tail. It started to lean I think or perhaps was pushed by the nozzle. This made a big mismatch between the two parts of it. I'll have to green stuff that or something else. One thought is to remove the lower part of the tail entirely, and sculpt the remaining part into a stubby tail. That's probably the easiest to do, so may be what I end up doing. One last picture, and what will be one of the easier clean-ups. There's little hairs that form when the nozzle goes from one print area to another. The plastic hardens on one area, then is pulled like taffy to the second. Most of these I can just scrape off with a fingernail, so they don't concern me too much. Just a couple of parting thoughts. The 3D software I've got that sends the print to the printer threw a warning when I was first trying to print, which was at 100 microns. I didn't actually do that, as it was going to require 8 hours if I remember correctly. The warning was that there were some overhangs that exceeded 45°, and that was going potentially cause issues. When I went to 150 microns, that error disappeared. I'm not sure what would have happened had I tried to print at that resolution. I suspect two things: 1) that it'd be knocked off the tape due to the closeness of the object to the print head, and 2) those overhands would wind up needing a lot of repair. As I continue on this, I'll update this post, along with the video that I made. It's not going to be a regular series, which I try to do every Tuesday, with little success lately, as I don't want to feel pressured to have to work it. That'll come with the CAV KS Ace package shipping out sometime this next week. I've volunteered to paint a couple out that set and post it online. It's what I'm planning to do on Tuesdays once I get it. Video basically stating everything I've said above is below behind spoiler tags, although I do buff the base actually in the video. Hard to see the result, but it's there. EDIT: Moved the pictures to a different photo album on PhotoBucket, so had to update the links.
  17. So, here are the three (well, four, really) things currently in front of me (in addition to my Galleon, which has made a little progress, but not enough to take pictures of). 14440: Vincente, Onyx Chevalier Captain 14391: Onyx Phalanx (Converted into a dismounted Vincente) 14213: Lady Devona, Crusaders Mage 14044: Uru, River Troll Chief (painted as a Swamp Troll for proxying in my Trollbloods army) Feel free to shout comments, color suggestions, encouragement, jeers, sarcasm, jibber-jabber, or unintelligible gibberish as you see fit. And thanks for watching!

    Trolls (Mierce Miniatures)

    In our next session the PC's in my Pathfinder game are about to be hit with some troll action, so I painted up a few more of my Darklands trolls from Mierce Miniatures, to go with the one I already did. Here we have Gamla Bror ("Old Brother" in Swedish), a troll shaman, together with one of his cleaver-wielding goons. They're mounted on 60 mm bases from Dragon Forge Design, who are actually right now running a Kickstarter to expand the number of designs they have in this series of bases (the series is called "Ancient Ruins"). I really love working with these bases; they paint up very easily and for me manage to hit the exact sweet spot between being nicely detailed, but not too busy and also very practical to mount miniatures on. Anyway, pictures! First up we have Gamla Bror, who I think might be one of my all time favorite miniatures (Allan Carrasco is the genius who sculpted this beast). Next, a lowly troll warrior armed with his implement of destruction of choice. I had a rear shot of this guy, but had to remove it as I realised his... manly parts were pretty prominent. Believe me when I say this monster is male, though. Very much male. And a group shot of Gamla Bror urging his hideous minions into battle.

    Troll (Ral Partha 11-408)

    I painted up an old Ral Partha troll, from their AD&D Monsters line. Love love love this sculpt of an old-school D&D foe I loved loved loved. I aimed for gross (and maybe a little radioactive) with him. Didn't do a whole lot, really--basecoated and applied a couple different washes (more SW; Algae and Green Black or whatnot) and sparely highlighted. Thanks for looking. Comments and criticism are very welcome!
  21. This is one of several old Ral Partha (now Iron Wind Metals) Shadowrun sculpts I've painted recently. She is one of three cybertroll figures in the set 20-563, "Wolfram's Gang". I deliberately painted her up in some of the colors of 'eighties fashions. I painted other cyber-trolls at the same time: Reaper's 50287: Caine, Cyber-Troll, Ral Partha's Lord Torgo, another member of "Wolfram's Gang" who I painted up all tattooed, an Oni bouncer, a cyber-troll in reflective armor, and an ork woman street samurai. The WIP thread for all of them and several more is here.

    A Troll Mage

    Finally finished the adorable Troll Mage from Stonehaven:- I felt she had a real '80s childrens fantasy film' vibe, so I made her rather colourful! Super pleased with how she turned out, particularly the eyes, I think they're my best ones yet (though that probably has more to do with their size than any real levelling up of my skills). C&C, as always, is appreciated.

    50287: Caine, Cyber-Troll

    This is Reaper's 50287: Caine, Cyber-Troll, a design-your-own mini designed by Wayne Reynolds and sculpted by Bobby Jackson. It came in two parts, which fitted together neatly at his wrists and the shoulder point of the strap. They were rather bulky and I felt better using pins to hold them together. The base supplied was too small for Caine's wide stance, but I hear Reaper is working on that. Meanwhile I used a larger round base and painted it up to look like asphalt. The WIP thread (which also includes a number of old school Ral Partha Shadowrun figures) is here. Show-off threads for the other Shadowrun figures are: a Troll woman from Wolfram's Gang, a Wolfram's gang troll with tattoos, an ork woman street samurai, an Oni bouncer, a cyber-troll in reflective armor, and the unbelievably over-the-top Lord Torgo. You can see the entire squadron of cyber trolls on Jasper the 2nd's Spaceship Superstar - Squad Entries thread.
  24. I've been going back and forth over starting a WIP for these because I've been noodling on them for a while and they're pretty far along. But hey. Perhaps this will be an incentive to get cracking and finish them. These are some official and unofficial Shadowrun figures, cyberpunk biggish humanoids, Reaper's 50287: Caine, Cyber-Troll, and a couple of trolls and an ork from Ral Partha, currently available from Iron Wind Metals (there's another ork, a decker, in this WIP). They're big. They're futuristic (for a particularly 1980s vision of the future). They're tech and camp and fun. I am trying to do Reaper's cybertroll in red and green without making him look too Christmasy. I am still pretty new to pinning; his hands and gun are still separate. This is an old Ral Partha cybertroll. I am trying to do some object-source-lighting on him, as if he were in shiny armor in the city at night, with orangeish city lights reflected from the cloud cover above and different colored lights from different directions. At the moment he looks pretty awful. I used the colors of 'eighties fashions on the female troll, which my have been a bit mean. This is as far as I know Ral Partha's -- indeed, anybody's -- only female Shadowrun ork. She is, let's face it, grotesque. I like the newest Shadowrun edition's illustrations of actually attractive orks, but so far there's no figures like that available. This is Lord Torgo, a particularly nasty troll character from the Shadowrun universe. He's pretty over the top. There is a chain which goes between his hands and a rifle and axe for his back which I haven't glued on yet.
  25. I really love the Mierce Miniatures trolls, masterfully sculpted by Allan Carrasco, and this one was an absolute joy to paint. The paint scheme is nothing groundbreaking, basically just copying what I have seen others do; I consider myself more of an executer than an innovator. Anyway, hope you like him, I haven't varnished yet so still open for suggestions of improvement. I have a couple more of these trolls that I intend to paint similarly, this is kind of the test model, so I really would appreciate critique! The skin was done by basecoating the various parts with Pale Olive, Muddy Olive and Olive Drab, with some blending in between. Then everything was given a wash with Olive Shadow, followed by some highlighting back up with the base colors. Perhaps I need to do more highlighting, what do you think? I do want to keep him kind of grim and gritty as befits Darklands, so I'm unsure. This was the first time I attempted to paint rusted metal. I basically followed this nice tutorial but with Reaper paints; basecoating with Muddy Brown, followed by successive stipling with Chestnut Brown, Phoenix Red and Shadowed Steel. Then the whole thing was given a wash with GW's Nuln Oil (OK, that one wasn't Reaper), and finished off with a little touch up with Shadowed Steel. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Perhaps I went a bit far with the amount of rust, but I wanted to push the idea that these trolls are just absolute savage, nasty brutes. Anyway, painting rust was really fun, I have some skeletons lined up for paint and they're definitely getting the treatment!
