  1. I've been working on this guy for a while, but am giving him his own thread under the new WIP guidelines. I base coated a few more bits, but now I'm stumped. I want to make some of the metal bits of his gun NMM brass, but I have no idea what colors I should use. Any suggestions?
  2. Hey all! I'm so happy to have found this great forum and community! I was introduced to the world of miniatures almost 10 years ago and used to love painting up hoards of monsters and soldiers, but eventually fell out of love with it. Recently I have been getting back in to tabletop gaming, and I decided to take a different approach to minis, sculpting my own instead of painting! So here is my first creation, a Gibbering Mouther! I figured this amorphous creature was a good place to start so I could get a feel for sculpting in this scale and material. It is still a work in progress, and I know
  3. This is my first shot at painting a fig in way too many years... I dont have a light box for pictures as well as limited skill. I hope you can provide some pointers on where to go next with it.
  4. I decided I would create a WIP thread, because I've painted a whole bunch of minis since my first posts, but just haven't had the chance to post the photos I've taken along the way. I'm not going to post those ones (unless requested), but I'm hoping to take advantage of my impending down time in a few weeks. I also hope to post more regularly with a thread to manage. So here's the next batch of minis I'm working on. Another werewolf: this one a grey one Another translucent ghost: this one I just want to try a quick drybrush in ashen blue the bones ghost and the LTPK 4 models I
  5. I've been lurking on these forums admiring everyone's work, and I think I'm ready to start posting mine! I painted a couple of minis over 15 years ago but didn't get back into it until recently, after receiving the first Bones Kickstarter. There is such a wealth of information and inspiration here - I definitely felt overwhelmed starting out, but this forum has helped a lot. Now let the picture posting commence! Dain Deepaxe #77074: Started working on him about mid-December, still not done. Base coat: Washed in black, then layered back up:
  6. So, since people actually look at my WIP threads, I thought I'd start a consolidated one. Here are my current projects: Eiryss, Mage Hunter Commander My Retribution of Scyrah army is a low-contrast army. They're painted as Drow, and are kind of supposed to look like this wave of darkness sweeping across the battlefield. They're primarily done in purple, dark gray, and a dark metallic (Martha Stewart's Black Nickel). Raluk Moorclaw, The Ironmonger Raluk, though a Mercenary/Minion model is going to be painted up with the same color scheme (and basing) as my Trollblood army, to
  7. Orcs! Gotta love orcs. While I didn't actually order the Orcocalypse add-on, we all get at least one copy of each orc in the Vampire package, so anyone can join in on this WIP. I figure this is a good one for an open WIP since there's probably about a 100 different approaches and color schemes to use on these guys. I picked out 2 of the 5 orcs to start with. As a big fan of Blizzard and Warcraft, I plan to paint these guys up in that style. Depending on how these turn out, I may try something different on the others. First step, washing, gluing, and basing: I removed most o
  8. I've decided to create a unified WIP thread for my WIPs which don't have their own thread. I started painting this old Mega Minis scorpion black for use in fantasy gaming. I quickly get bored of that and decide it should be a robot scorpion with machine guns. A bones IMEF solder gives up his weapon for this noble cause. The black undercoat gives it a somewhat mercury-like appearance, which I like. I practice my drybrushing techniques on some Mega minis bears I primed ages ago, and with a little too much primer I think. A bones skeleton with paintjob inspired by a certain
  9. Hello everyone! After publishing a post about my first mini here, I listened to your precious advice and started gearing up for a new mini: the Mermaid (03554). It took me so long from the first mini to this one because I tried a few things on it... I first added a little starfish on the rock beside the crab, just because. And I felt her mermaid tail was a little boring, so I added little fins on it! Took me ages to manage to stick those tiny things on there, and it was my first time with green stuff. Yeah, lots of first times on this mini! Later I added some sand behind the rocks to
  10. A friend of mine is running our group through the Pathfinder adventure path "Reign of Winter" Because I am a sadist, I decided to try and paint up something as a present for him in appreciation of running such a long series of modules. In addition, I am working with the folks at http://impudentmortal.com/ to create the hut (while I will be sculpting the chicken leg base). This thread is to kick me in the pants so that I actually finish it! First up is my "inspiration" shots on my corkboard... I find it helps to have visuals up that A: kick me in the pants whenever I walk by and B: give
  11. This seems to be the "in" thing these days - a single, centralized thread of one's progress, both to keep from cluttering up the forums and to document improvement. I could probably use something like this; I keep thinking that I'm not getting better, and then I look at minis I did a year ago and shudder. So, here we go. I can't promise to keep it up to date, since my schedule's usually pretty hectic and I have a bad habit of forgetting about or neglecting projects in progress... *guiltily shuffles the Armies of Anhur out of sight with his foot* ...but I've been somewhat active lately, so
  12. So, here's my plan. I'm going to start this WIP thread, so I can track my progress from "terribad" through to "less terribad" I've been painting a few months now, and I've come a fair distance from where I started. Already progressing from "ludicrous-bad" (which I like to call "Plaid") up through "ridiculous-bad" and into "terribad". All of my progress so far has been a little bit of brush control, and a lot of knowledge that I've gleaned from the internet - thinning paints, washing, dry-brushing, and just recently attempting some layering. And I think with a lot of practice, and
  13. I made today a small modification on a Bones Mini: I still need a Ram Skull. I know there are such skulls available in 28mm, but I think this modification will need a while. What I need is Panthor. Does anyone know this Barbarian (and the others) from Mirliton? Are these 2 minis or a one piece mini? I thought this one could be big enough, even if it is a sabre tooth tiger and not a panther. I will make my next order in a shop where I can get these barbarian tiger riders or some North Star Sabretooth Tigers. They have also this Leopard from North Star Miniatures, but
  14. Every since the first KS and the addition of Cthulhu I knew I had to have him. And when he arrived along with the rest of my Bone-y goodness, I got it in my head that I HAD to paint him with dry pigments instead of paint. Having followed the efforts of Katheryn Loch over on CMON and some Google hangouts she hosted to explain the process, I decided that this big guy was going to be colored this way. I have been using pigments on bases for a while now and had been experimenting using them for weathering but... this is something new. The only part that really worries me is the face/tentacles
  15. OK, let's do this. I've been taking about doing a WIP for quite some time. I've been painting off and on now since the mid-80s when I was introduced to 40K (Rogue Trader the only edition I actually played) and found a group of guy that actually used the little Grenadiers and Ral Parthas in a game. My work doesn't really reflect the longevity due to the stop and nature of things. I basically do ok tabletop and while I have lots of theoretical knowledge (spending way too much time reading the forums), I haven't put in the practice to actually apply this knowledge. I finally made it ou
  16. In tandem with actually posting in my own Show-off thread, I decided to post pictures of one of my most recent endeavors, A stone golem. Using the Bones mini, but going with okri's painting tutorial.
  17. I've been painting for nearly a year now, but I've never been happy with the TMM work I've done. This community has been really helpful in giving advice on some other pieces I've done, so I decided to pick out a handful of mini's with a lot metal on them, and put up a WIP. Hopefully, by the time I'm done I'll be much better. The finalists are: From left to right - 77055 - Anval Thricedamned, Evil Warrior - 77094 - Trista, the White Wolf - 77168 - Battleguard Golem - 77023 - Barnabus, Human Warrior - 77058 - Almaran the Gold, Paladin I've started prepping Almaran, hopefully I'll
  18. Starting this one too.. the wings join through the body (pics later) aren't fitting right.. it looks like the socket has some extra bonesium in the bottom corners and so the plug of the other wing+leg won't seat completely.. there also appears to be a large gap in the chest where the plug side (wing + leg) joins. This also appears to be cause either by the plug not seating properly or the bottom part of the neck or the upper thigh on the wing+leg section needing some minor reduction for fit
  19. I was asked to paint a few Reaper miniatures up to fit in with an undead Mordhiem army. As this is outside of my comfort zone I thought it would be a good idea to do a WIP so I can get some feedback on them. The three figures are Reaper's 03345 Ridley Darkedge sculpted by the incredible Julie Guthrie, 03496 Castrus Vile sculpted by the great Guy England and 0390 Ilkhand the Bloody sculpted by the wonderful Werner Klocke. I hope to included lots of photos as I paint, but unfortunately I sometimes forget. So to start I prepped Ridley tonight and boy did he need alot of work. I spent alot of
  20. [Edited to reflect a thread split.] After seeing some of the incredible WIPs here, I wanted to try doing some of my own. So, I decided to start with something simple: Kaladrax! Over the Christmas holidays, I went over and trimmed and sanded all the mold lines from the model. Kaladrax's details are rather soft, but that was an advantage here, as I didn't have to worry much about losing any detail as I trimmed. The base was annoying to clean up. Every time I looked, there was another mold line I missed. The spine cleanup was a multi-day nightmare. Remember, always c
  21. Well, I thought I'd add my WiP Minis thread to the list, so here goes... First one here is going to be used for Sheska, the Fighter in one of the Games I run. This here is Torchbearer, my PC in a new Campaign I joined recently. He is a Warforged Fighter with the Firecrafter Theme. Basically, I describe him as "Fire, barely contained". In the Campaign's world, Warforged are made by fusing a soul to a Construct body and are made primarily by Kenku as servants. My PC's creator made him from a Fire Elemental soul and used him to carry his torch around. My PC was not amused
  22. Given how helpful I found my Pathfinder Red Dragon WIP Thread, I've decided to start a new one for my next large project: Ebonwrath! Here he is assembled: And here's a base. I started with a Renedra 120mm Elipse platic base, then built it up with cork, glue, sand and bonsai stones. Here's the final assembly: I added a little more corck to support his feet, as he doesn't sit perfectly flat, and added green stuff to his joins and the base. For a colour scheme, I decided to stick with making him a panther-like black dragon, but I wanted to experiment with lighting a bit.
  23. I've just started painting, so I thought I'd post things I'm working on and hopefully get some hints on where to go next. First up are some Bones Goblins. My two goals for this are to develop better contrast and tweak my techniques so that painting goes more quickly. I started with a base coat of walnut brown for 3 and blacked brown for the other 3. I'd definitely do them all in walnut brown if I had it to do again. Then I put down a base coat of olive green for the skin. The metals are true silver mixed with true black or mahogany brown. Then I put on either oiled leather or ru
  24. Howdy all, It's been about 6 years since i've posted any figures. It's time to get back in the game! Any advice or suggestions (good or bad) is always welcome.
