  1. I decided that since there's no time limit, that I'd give this fun challenge a go. I didn't notice the screenshot requirement until it was too late. I originally rolled: 10 - Imperial Purple 19 - Pure Black 19 - Pure Black Thankfully doubles get resolved and the second 19 - Pure Black, became: 11 - violet red Which I didn't have, but the handy comparison chart allows me to use Vallejo Game Color 14 - Warlord Purple, which looks very close to the Reaper color. I looked at the P3 Beaten purple, but it's a dark purple, not a reddish purple. Here's the paint dots next to their respective colors: I did not roll a dragon because I need to look and see what I have in my box o' Bones. That will have to wait until tomorrow as I'm working on homework.... Err, supposed to be anyways. *edit* I forgot to add that I'm going to attempt the three star challenge. Thankfully, I think the warlord purple will allow me to highlight the imperial purple quite nicely. I have no idea what I'm going to do with the pure black yet.
  2. Just a bunch of Eastern myth themed minis, mostly from Bones III and one Kenku/Tengu Monk from Stonehaven. Oh, and some Myconids from Ganesha Games and Bones III plant monsters. More Mario than myth, I suppose. Oni close-up: Kitsune close-up: I like the male Kitsuine a lot more than I was expecting. His pose, with all its swagger, adds a lot of character. I also hadn't noticed the sake cup he was holding until I started painting.
  3. Time to start painting again. Figured I'd pick up where I left off, and that is with (the old) Learn to Paint Kit #5. The dwarf is painted, but I never got around to the paladin before moving cross-country. So here she is, bare: And primed: I thought posting a WIP would help me track my progress a bit better, and force me to not chicken out of finishing her up. I'm still a beginner, after all.
  4. A coworker buddy found this guy at a thrift store under "knickknacks". Yay! Or, I should say, "Ia-ee!" :-) But I got slightly blocked on painting him. He's been sitting on the kitchen table unfinished for about a month. So I thought I'd post him to unblock myself. I haven't decided whether I'm going to keep the base he came on... it looks kind of beachy, which is neat, but I feel like more could be done. One concern I have about the figure is that its base is only about 4-5" across, while the Pathfinder's Cthulhu stats show a 40' Space, and I like the base to match that (at 28mm scale, of course). So a substantial expansion may be called for... Anyway, this is him so far, needing substantial additional paint... I should do this more often. The camera has clearly managed to find all my missing mold lines. :-/
  5. So I'm DMing a group of D&D 5E where we've played the Tyranny of Dragons storyline for the last two years now. We're around session 80ish now, and my group is near the end, where I want them to encounter Tiamat herself. As I've used miniatures for all encounters so far, I need a Tiamat figue. When I saw the amazing WIP and Show-Off threads from Sirithiliel last year, I knew I had found the "miniature" I needed. Thank you for the inspiration, Siri. The model is called "Lysander" and is produced by Toscano. It's made out of some kind of resin and is pretty fragile (especially the horns). Wasn't easy to track down the figue, but then I found it on Amazon for 65 Euros including shipping to Germany. I understand that there are versions of this figure that come unpainted. Mine was painted in a nice green/yellow tone. But of course, this is not befitting of Tiamat ;) My plan was to go a little step further than Siri and change the heads, too. My players know the D&D dragons pretty well after a two-year-long dragon themed campaign, and they should be able to identify the typical D&D dragon heads. As of now, I am almost finished with the model. But if you like, I'll post the pictures of the process here. Here we go: Step 1: The figure out of the box I couldn't get the whole figure on camera with my usual photo setup. Will change setup for later pictures The model is about 29 cm high, has a wingspan of 38 cm and a base of about 18 cm. It's clearly not in a 28cm fantasy miniture scale like the Reaper miniatures (eyes are too big, base has mega huge tree under the dragon's claws), but it will do.
  6. Yes I decided I need to begin my work so I can hopefully finish up an entry for Bombshell Miniatures, I decided to go with Qadire of the Sands. I gave her skin a base coat and painted up her eyes. Well I thought I had, until I looked at her eyes blown up. I think I need to reexamine her left eye.
  7. So, Ebonwrath is the first dragon I'll be painting. Lucky for me, I actually had good dice rolls. Orange Brown, Lava Orange, and Violet Red. I had to order the paints. To practice with my colors mixing (and since I got a nice set) I'm going to be trying the 3*** star challenge. This challenge is now awaiting the arrival of my paints and dragon.
  8. I'm making my own gaming table Here is the rough design: 6ft X 4ft. In the car park next door to work I saw and purchased 3x hemlock slabs (8ft by 2 ft, 1 1/2' thick) at $40 CAD each & 1 cracked 1 at $15. Enough wood to build the lid. I had access to a full work shop so we started cutting! Using the track saw, table saw, thickness plainer & joiner we cut 7 boards 7 1/8' wide and just over 6ft long, 2 of them having live edges. Some of the wood had a little rot so we sanded that out and plan to fill with epoxy. The wood being a little wet still I decided to throw it in the kiln and dry it out to lighten the lid up. I then bought 2 slabs 8ft by 2ft 3' thick at $50 CAD but one snapped in half vertically! Making it around 10' wide and I grabbed the 2 halves for a discounted $15 each. Little does he know that's perfect as I only need them 8' for the sides of the gaming table face. I will edit and update when I'm on a laptop, feel free to ask me any questions. Update: New design after we cut the wood. I also purchased the legs (fur). The base of the table will be one sided finished ply (nice side on bottom) and I will either do a red, green, grey or purple felt on the play area. Any suggestions?
  9. Because I need another WIP thread, I thought I would start another one for my Burrows & Badgers Oathsworn KS terrain I got. I started this one today and thought I'd try out Wappel's shaded base coat method. I used reaper paints to apply the base coat. Since Scale 75 is the only Inks I own used them to ally the shading as best I could. Here is the result, I need to seal it and give it a matte coat as I understand now when people say inks have a gloss to them.
  10. I thought I'd try to keep a work in progress of the process I'm making in Bones 3. I got distracted/bored during the Death Guard painting, and went back to some of the bones. "Heeey you guuuys!" The Fomorian just called to me. He felt left out when I painted the other Giants, I guess.
  11. So, I'm doing the Layer Up learn to paint kit from reaper. Hopefully, I'm not missing any of the basics from core skills (I did the AP learn to paint process). So, all washed and boiled...
  12. I'm really bad at fur and texture, so I'm doing a WIP for the dire bear for advise. Will post updated pictures at each step. Comments and suggestions appreciated. Thankfully, I don't see any mould lines on him, so I'll start without any pre modification.
  13. It was requested that I begin a Work In Progress thread for this piece. I don’t normally do WIP threads, so if anyone is looking for more detail, let me know. This model represents a bunch of firsts for me. This is my first bust, first resin, first model airbrushed, and first attempt at zenithal priming. The model comes in 5 pieces: The base, neck, and back of the head are the bulk, followed by the face/muzzle, and left/right horns. The Queen makes the fifth piece. Assembly was fairly easy and straightforward. Each piece received a good wash in soapy water. When dry, I super-glued things together, but there were a couple gaps that needed to be taken care of. I didn’t take any pictures at this stage. The gap was where the face met the horns on each side. After the putty cured, I broke out the airbrush and gave it a coat of Vallejo Black surface primer, followed by a zenithal coat of Vallejo White. For the Queen, she has been mounted on a straight pin and cork. The model came with a hole pre-drilled in both Queen, and the dragon horn on which she sits. At this stage she has received the same zenithal primer coat, a single coat of MSP Tanned Shadow, and the eyes have been started. Just need to shape them back into looking like eyes. Comments and critiques welcome.
  14. Got my base coats on and a top glaze on the back..
  15. Actually, I'm starting this tomorrow. I'm starting the thread now so that @buglips*the*goblin has a chance to check in and add my name to the list of bat-crap crazy whackjobs taking this on. And, you know. Pelt somebody with a stanky shoe, 'cause why not. As this is a Goblin Challenge, it will follow the Challenge Rules, as stated in this thread: I am .. not sure I know WTF I'm doing, but whatever, I'm a girlblin, I'm not known for sanity, and I pelt people with chili-bombs. So. Maal's been washed and dry-fitted, and I've said a lot of bad words about all the ratzenfraggin' holes in the wings and ... done exactly nothing about any of it, because I'm not breaking out the knife and greenstuff until tomorrow. But! The PLAN, if plan there can be said to be had, is that tomorrow, day one, will be mostly line-trimming, gap-filling and wing-patching, and possibly linering the base. After that, painting will proceed apace; and here's a picture of Maal'dryfitted to prove I have all the pieces, and amuse everybody. I couldn't find Sir Forscale, so I used a quarter. Let the commentating begin! ... don't get nuts, I'd like to be able to start this tomorrow and only be on page one or two. ;p
  16. I decided that my (admittedly small) collection of figs was starting to need a feminine element. I grabbed this gal from my stash and started another project to help distract me from my other projects. I also chose her because I am trying to learn my NMM and she's got a fair amount of armor. So far I have only done a few Barbarian males, so I am trying hard to be considerably "softer" with her skin tones. Her face is the also the only skin on this fig so I am trying to give it a lot of attention as I know it will be where the eye goes first (no pun intended). Hmmm, this is a phone camera photo and the skin color is a bit washed out. Oh well, this will serve as a good enough "starting point" post.
  17. Bones 4 is next month, but I'm still working through my backlog from Bones 2, lol. Here's my version of Narthrax, my favorite dragon from that KS. This was a really fun mini to paint. More pics and a detailed WIP over at my blog (link down in my sig).
  18. I'm going to be playing in a second D&D group starting in a couple of weeks so I decided to get started on painting up my new character. I'm using darksword miniatures male warrior as my 2-handed vengeance paladin. It's really the only two handed weapon sculpt I could find that I really liked. I decided to just leave him on his base with how the sword is. I had to assemble the hand with the sword as there were two options for weapons, the greatsword and a great axe. Mold lines really weren't too bad. I decided to go with a red cloak since he's going to be from the order of the gilded eye. Their symbol looks to be a red background with a white gauntlet with an eye on the fist. I don't think I'm going to add the symbol to the cloak. Maybe if he had a shield I would give some freehand a try. Most of the base base coating is completed and I got started on the eyes. The armor I base coated a dark grey as I plan to highlight up from there to make the armor white. So the only areas the base coat should be showing is the shaded areas. I might add or subtract some gold details on the armor as I progress. Also the boots seem like they should be leather the more that I look at the details. For the most part they don't look too bad. I'm going to try and get the black outline a little thinner when I do the skin. Also the left eye is a little larger than the right, but I don't think it looks too bad. I'm undecided on touching it at this point because I don't want to really mess it up.
  19. Hey! l haven't done a WIP thread in a while now. I know Bones III is the new hotness now, and Mal'drakhar is the shiny that everyone wants to paint. But I got a comission to paint Khanjira, and and one of my own to paint, too: The comission doesn't want to have "dinosaur colors or Godzilla colors" and likes the idea of a blue Khanjira. I'm flipping back and forth on mine; I might go with a red and purple color scheme, or I might do a "Pacific Rim"-inspired dark grey with a blue bioluminescent glow on his eyes, mouth and parts of his armor. I'll mock up some colors after I get one assembled and photographed. I started the comission yesterday, and so far have managed to trim the flash and mold lines from just four parts - and 10 more to go. There's a lot of mold lines on each part, and removing each one potato-peeler style takes a lot of time! (I tend to nibble them away.) At my rate, I estimate about 2-3 evenings left for removing mold lines on just the first one. Oh, and I just know that there'll be the question of why I don't take the 7-day goblin challenge. No, sorry, just no. I'm one of those types that can't stand exposed mold lines or gaps on my finished models, and resolving that alone would disqualify me for doing that before the challenge started, or take up too much of the week to finish on time. And also, I have still a few scraps of sanity left... and want to keep them! Next update when I finish surface cleanup and start fitting the pieces...
  20. So, I'm preparing my prizes for the DDM Guild GenCon 50 events. Thought I'd share them here, too. So without further ado, Pictures! A Fire Giantess from the Storm Kings Thunder mini set. Nearly ready now. Biggest improvement I made was Eyebrows! Planetar Angel. Took these to my FLGS, Gatehouse Games, and showed them off. Just about everyone there said they liked the wings. A Female Tiefling Warlock. Gave her a better base using a Base Stamp. Also, realized I haven't taken a more recent picture of her. The 3.? Edition Iconic Psion. Cannot Pronounce OR Spell his name! Also, have done a lot since this picture was taken. Hope you enjoyed this. GF
  21. To add to the number of projects I'm falling behind on, I picked up the new 40k boxed set, "Dark Imperium": I'm really liking what I've seen for the new 40k, and although I haven't gotten a real game in in a long time, I've played Nurgle Chaos Space Marines for a long time. It's really cool to seem Marines the size they're supposed to be. I skipped over assembly photos, and went straight to the drybrushed armor. I think there's some shoulders and skin done in this photo, too: I haven't even primed the Poxwalkers yet. I already have a ton of modern/sci-fi zombie types, and while I do plan on using the new sculpts, I want to convert the second half a bit before I paint them. You can see my previous project, the poor Cave Goblins (of The Hobbit films), literally pushed to the side. I may work on them as a co-project, as they would make great Poxwalkers!
  22. Well this month I decided to join in the hangouts mini. Got started on mine tonight on the hangouts. Went with the green skin as all my other's I have are painted up as greenskins. I mostly base coated tonight during the hangout. Here is what I got accomplished.
  23. Here is my next project I'm trying to focus on while filling in with the hill giant. This is a birthday present for a friend. I'm thinking of going for a dark angel look with reds, purples and blacks. I'll attach the wings after I get most of the upper portion painted up.
  24. So this is my next model in line to paint up. I'm hoping that this will give me some practice painting skin and faces, even though it's at a larger scale than a human sized figure. This is also my first bones model that I've started painting. Cleaned mold lines, assembled everything, pinned it to the base and green stuffed the gaps. Primed the base and green stuff and then I used brown line for my first coat on everything. Other than that I threw on a thinned down coat of cadmium skin. It will need a few more coats to cover the brown liner. I decided to get started on this while something else was drying. This one will probably move slowly as I will use him to fill time while I paint a couple of other figures. Thabks for looking!
  25. Here we have a blind bag Marvel 500 figure, series 8 Red Guardian. Why? Mostly just because. Impulse purchase, never seen them before, curiosity driven I suppose. Sure, but why paint it? As it turns out this fig has been a great exercise (thus far) in blending that I am in most need of. Also I have been enjoying the process of basing. Something that I am finding every bit as enjoyable as the figure painting. At this point I based and initial shaded/highlighted the blue with an airbrush. I used some liquid masking, won't do that again. Tough to remove. Luckily the blue paint withstood the shower and gentle toothbrush scrub that I had to resort to. The lower face area has gotten a little attention. The blues have been getting highlight brush blends. The red and white are still in the basecoat stages. More to come.
