  1. Here is a trio of unicorns from Otherworld Miniatures (Wilderness Encounters 19). The hedgehog is from 2969: Familiar Pack VIII.
  2. "En Loki hafði þá ferð haft til Svaðilfara, at nökkuru síðar bar hann fyl. Þat var grátt ok hafði átta fætr, ok er sá hestr beztr með goðum ok mönnum." "But Loki's relations with Svaðilfara [the horse of a giant] were such that a while later he gave birth to a colt. It was grey and had eight feet, and this is the best horse among gods and men." -Snorri Sturlason, Edda (written around 1220 CE, the latter line a translation by Jesse Byock) This is a conversion of two Unicorn figures into Sleipnir, the horse of the Chieftain of the Norse Gods, Odin. I used the extra legs from the second figure to give Sleipnir the eight legs as indicated by Snorri's Edda, one of our major sources for Norse Myth. I have the whole conversion and painting thread here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/53558-scandinavian-contest-entry-sleipnir-and-odin/ Since the gods and Jotun (Giants) conflict is often seen as Spring versus winter, I depicted Sleipnir as bringing the spring where he steps. The runestone on the base was made entirely by me. It uses runes from the Elder Futhark and reads the second sentence of the quotation above, save the words "ok monnum" (and men.) I didn't have quite enough room to fit it, and I felt it was expendable. Pity, though. Questions and comments welcome! Feel free to peruse the whole process....
  3. Woo! So, I finally got a camera, and I thought I'd upload some of my painted minis~ I'm gonna upload them in the order I did them, so I'll do the "Unicorn" first! Now, all of my mini's are painted in Marie's Artist's Acrylics - I get mine for 5$/box at Ocean State Job Lot. My paint brushes are these - they're cheap, they're tiny, and they move paint from the palette to the mini, which is all I really ask for in a brush. They last okay; I need to order new ones, and even 15 brushes don't last long, so I usually order 2-3 sets at a time - with free shipping, spending 5 or 6 dollars isn't that big a deal for 40-50 brushes, but they take up to 2 months to get here, a bit of a wait. Now, onto my figures! I've never painted minis before these - initially, I was looking for cheap minis for D&D on amazon, prepaints and such, and someone in the comments mentioned Reaper; I visited here, dropped a hundred bucks on some minis, and now I'm 800$ in the hole for KSII. Never gonna play D&D without minis again... they'll make my mats so much livelier. And of course, now I want to get into Hirst... but that's a matter for another thread! So I got my minis, and I was very happy. The first I decided to paint was a unicorn - my sister wanted to see a fire unicorn, and I thought, "I can do that!" So I did! HELLO, FRIENDS! Hello, unicorn! I started this one by basecoating... black, I think. Then I did the mane and tail; white, then yellow, followed by drybrushed red and orange, and with a dryer sort of drybrushing of black after. Then I made grey, and I added a little blue & brown - just the tiniest bit - and used that for the body. A slightly darker shade added the collarbone and the leg's shadow, and then I reblacked the hooves, eyes, teeth and horn... All in all, I think this one came out great! I plan to base it when the KSII bases get here; I want to do it rearing on a brownstone cliff in scrublands - something with a deep, dark red color, to give it a lot of contrast and make the mane pop! Here are some other pictures: The blur! THE BLUR! This picture shows off the mane really well, I think. The shading on the stomach, too. Next up: THE GRYPHON!
  4. I couldn't think of a better start for adding my posts to these forums. As my 5 year old daughter has recently started showing an interest in my miniature painting, I decided to get a couple of unicorns to paint with and for her. This is the result of about 1 hours worth of painting, followed by 5 minutes of Quickshade on my effort, then a quick matte coat the next day to get rid of the gloss. I'm really proud of her effort. It was originally all pink, which in her words was "so we don't have to use all the paints", but when I got out the rest of the colors for my rainbow bits, she decided she wanted to do more, and did. The grass was added because "unicorns love grass". For my effort, I actually really like the patchy shading that resulted from the Quickshade, it makes it look more gritty. And she really likes both of them, so I couldn't ask for more.
  5. The fourth Bone to be completed is the Unicorn. This one was mostly uninspired and somewhat of a struggle, and has been dabbled with on and off over the past few weeks. I had a lot of halfbaked not quite thought out ideas, but they conflicted and I had to start over a couple of times as what I tried doing simply did not work. In the end I got sick of it and completed it a bit too fast, with almost no detailing such as stripes, mealy muzzle, socks or what not. And it shows, as it is rather dull and a bit boring. Too bad as it is a very nicely posed figure. It probably would have been better being black. Or pastel pink with rainbows coming out of its south end. The toadstool on the base is a bit of leftover green stuff and some vacant space on the base combined. That is actually the bit I think works the best, in relation to the dynamic movement of the unicorn trying to avoid it. And the horn went back almost to it’s original slightly-bent-to-the-left position. Argh! Oh well, on the the next.
  6. Does anybody know if Dark Moto models were ever made for L5R? In particular, I'm wondering about cavalry. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
  7. going to base him soon. Thinking about hitting him with a white glaze to tone down the shiny..
  8. This is the first thing I have painted since November. Every time I paint a bones I like them more. I am no fan of priming and I really like how they take craft paint. The camera jammed during this photo session (E18, again!) so they aren't the best photos. Happy (Late) New Year and feedback appreciated. Cheers.
