  1. I almost didn't bother posting these, but I went ahead and did so. Just some quick rats and spiders. The rats are from the D&D Castle Ravenloft board game, the spiders are from the Legend of Drizzt board game. To mix it up, I alternated colors between brown/dark gray/light gray. They came out a bit dark, but I guess that's okay for rats and spiders. Nothing spectacular, but they actually get used quite a bit (on the rare occasions when my group actually gets to play).
  2. I finally got inspired to paint these guys up after BlazingTornado posted one a while back. For what they are, the sculpts have a respectable amount of detail (except the teeth...the top row of chompers had to be freehanded on each skeleton due to soft details). I was originally going to go with a tarnished bronze look on the shields. But, after I muddied them up a little, I fell in love with the look and decided to keep them as-is. I think the rust effect came out pretty well on the sword blades. They won't be superstars in my skeleton army, but they're good middle-of-the-road models.
  3. "As we searched through the halls of the necromancer's lair, we were disgusted at the sight of bloody flesh piled in the corners. Then, a familiar magic stirred in the air. All about us, those bits of bloody flesh began to swirl and form into horrific figures! Reginald nearly went mad on the spot. I can't say that I blame him. Our fight with the vile flesh golems was long and bloody. In the end, they were vanquished...but not without cost to our own party. Upon reaching the necromancer's final chamber, we found that his flesh golems had allowed him enough time to make his escape. But he will not run for long. We were originally meant only to apprehend him. But, I now mean to slay him on the spot once I find him. Any being who can conceive of abominations such as this must not be allowed to live!" After bulk buying those MTG sets, I was left with a lot of the Pummelroot Elementals. They're cool, but I certainly didn't need 15 painted the same way. I thought this would be an interesting alternate approach to flesh golems. Honestly, I think I was a bit too heavy-handed with the blood (but it's just so much fun!). Anyway...Happy Halloween!
  4. Another squad from the MTG board games that I bulk bought. I painted these a few years ago, but I think they hold up okay (the foliage could probably stand to have some better highlights).
  5. A while back, I picked up a BUNCH of these MTG board games at deep discount. There are some pretty good minis in there. The Shadows Over Innistrad expansion comes with three different werewolves. Since I nabbed four sets, that's a total of twelve general use werewolves for me! I'll do different threads for each sculpt. These were all painted years ago. They were pretty-much quick and dirty paint jobs (base coat, wash, minor highlighting, and a few details picked out). Not my finest work, but they fit the season. This first sculpt is officially the Moon-Blessed form of Arlinn Kord. Group 2 thread Group 3 thread
  6. Here's the second group of werewolves from the MTG board game (see the thread for group #1 for the background on these minis). Officially, this mini is one of the two Kessig Ravagers. I just like using it as a big, beefy werewolf. Group 1 thread Group 3 thread
  7. And here's group three from the MTG board game (again, see the thread for group #1 if you'd like to read about the minis' background). This is the other sculpt for the Kessig Ravagers. Group 1 thread Group 2 thread
  8. Painted this mini for a friend to use as a pc in our dnd campaing 🙂 Thanks for looking!
  9. This mini is from Wrath of Ashardalon boardgame. It was a quick and simple paintjob since the sculpt itself is quite simple. Thanks for looking!
  10. Quick and easy paintjob! I like his expression! Thanks for looking 🙂
  11. Definitely one of my favorite inclusions in the Ravenloft board game. Originally, I thought the paint job would be entirely a bone color. After I started prepping him, however, it became clear that there was just as much rotting flesh as there was visible bone. Makes sense, considering the artwork in the monster manual. A quick Google image search shows that people approach this model's paint job in a variety of cool ways. This combines my favorite elements from what I've seen, plus my own spin on the way I like to paint undead/zombie-types.
  12. Another older piece from me. Not much to say about this one...I had a blast painting him. I wanted to make him a little bit darker than most of the other Ashardalon models I've seen. If you have any thoughts or critiques, I'd love to hear them.
  13. Here's another one of my older ones. I'm fairly happy with the end result, but I remember the process of prepping and painting this guy as being 100% miserable from beginning to end. The base was severely warped and required a ton if effort to straighten out...there were random chunks of plastic missing from the model that needed to be filled in...there was a huge ugly moldline/joining point running down the middle of the model...the underbelly was tricky to get to and paint...tons of flash removal...the list goes on and on. Anyone else have such quality control issues on their copy? I'm curious. Anyway, the part of the model that I genuinely love is the way they sculpted the head. I'm happy with the way that part came out on the finished product. If I had to paint this guy over again, (which I most definitely will NOT be doing 🙂 ), I'd have gone a lot brighter with the body's final highlights to bring out the details on the scales. Comments and criticism welcome.
  14. Here's one I painted quite a while back. I absolutely love the crazy design of the Otyugh, not to mention the creature's unapologetically filthy lifestyle. I tried to capture that nastiness in the paint job, all the while making sure things didn't go from "purposefully gross" to "just sloppy". For whatever reason, I didn't take the time to remove his mold lines. It's an obvious weakness in the finished presentation (let this be a lesson about the importance of the preparation phase, I suppose...). Feel free to leave any comments/criticism.
  15. Hello everyone, here’s the second Wizkids character model I painted for one of the players in my DnD group. I painted the armor using the NMM technique and added blood effect (not hers). This is a Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures 73542, Half-Orc female Fighter produced by Wizards of the Coast. I painted it with Reaper MSP paint. Happy International Hobby Day!
  16. Hello everyone, here’s the first Wizkids character model I painted for one of the players in my DnD group. I painted it with Reaper MSP paint. It was a fast paint job since he's eventually going to be moved around on the gaming table. This 72618, Human Wizard is a Wizkids D&D Nolzur’s Marvelous Miniatures. Have a great day. (it is missing the spell effect piece. I will paint it later).
  17. Wizards of the Coast 88702 Gnome Infiltrator of the Thalos faction. This Chainmail Miniatures model was sculpted by Jerzy Montwill. The base is 20mm in diameter.
  18. Hello everyone, I completed this Wizards of the Coast model today. This is a 88714, Goblin Scout of the Drazen's Horde faction. It's a Chainmail Miniatures model that was sculpted by Jerzy Montwill. The base is 20mm in diameter and I painted it with Reaper MSP paint.
  19. Hello everyone, I had painted this Wizards of the Coast 88362, Hammerer years ago and it was the perfect model to practice weathering effect. So, I took it a step farther last weekend during Reaper Virtual Expo. I followed the advices David Cecil and Justin McCoy give over their respective Weathering Effects classes. I added rust, oil leaks, blood and improved the scratches. I also added mud between the stone tiles on the base and enhanced the glowing effect of the eye and runes. This model was sculpted by Jim Warner. Side-by-side comparison, before and WIP.
  20. Hello everyone, here are pictures of my latest. Wizards of the Coast, Chainmail Ahmut's faction 88347, Half-Orc Fighter sculpted by Jim Warner. I painted it with Reaper MSP paint.
  21. Hello everyone, here are pictures of Wizards of the Coast 88358, Skeletal Orc. This Chainmail model was sculpted by Will Hannah in 2001 for the Ahmut faction.
  22. Hello inspiration Tuesday, Here are pictures of a Wizards of the Coast 88712, Zombie Troglodyte I completed Yesterday. This Chainmail model was sculpted by Will Hannah and was painted with Reaper MSP paint.
  23. Hi everyone. Got a couple of Cool Cats to show off today. I went back and forth for a long time on whether or not a wanted a group of matching lions, or if I wanted variety. As a DM, I feel these would be used most often as Druidic wildshapes, familiars, or summons. I also couldn't deny that i wanted to try some different techniques on each, so I decided to go with a Lion, a Tiger, and a Black Panther. Tiger (Reaper Bones Lion 77341) First up was the Tiger. She was actually the Lioness from the Reaper Bones Lions set (77341). Her sculpt looked like it could read as a tiger, and that was my major inspiration for wanting to paint each of them differently. I used a lot of references images on her and the subsequent cats as well. Really wanted to get the coloration right. I'm happy I did, because my instinct was to use more orange tones, but in actuality, tigers have more of a warm brown color. I used red-hair colors to bring out the highlights. The stripes weren't as difficult as I was expecting. I just used my reference photos as a guide and did my best. I do worry that people will misinterpret the nose stripes as poorly-drawn whiskers though. She also looks a little dopy head-on but I promise that that's the sculpt. Click the Spoiler for more Photos Lion (Reaper Bones Lions 77341) Next up is the other half of the Lion set. This guy was always destined to be a lion. Once again, I'm really glad I used reference images. Its funny how many animals we envision incorrectly. I learned this lesson well after painting up the Bones 4 pig way too pink, even though I knew it shouldn't be that color. I'm really pleased with my coloration on the mane. The only dry brushing on this guy is the rock base. Time consuming but worth the result. I think the muscle highlights look pretty natural. Click the Spoiler for more Photos Black Panther (Legend of Drizzt Board Game - Guenhwyvar) And finally we have the Black Panther. Fun Fact: Did you know that there is no such animal as a Black Panther? It is just a nickname for melanistic variants of any Panthera species, specifically Leopards and Jaguars. This model is from The Legend of Drizzt Board Game by Wizards of the Coast. I have not read a single Drizzt Do'Urden book, but I believe the black panther, Guenhwyvar, is the ranger's companion animal. Anyways, that was influence enough to paint her up in that style. I believe I used mostly Black Jaguars as inspiration, though the markings became less important than getting the highlight colors right. I ended up using Reaper's Dark Elf Skin colors to highlight the black, which is amusing considering Drizzt's race. I added some mottled spotting afterwards, trying to imply the pattern more than paint each individual spot. I think I managed to imply muscle, fur, and spots without losing the dark shade of black I wanted. Pretty happy, especially since this sculpt was my least favorite of the bunch. Click the Spoiler for more Photos QUESTION TIME Which of the three is your favorite? What animals do you use most often in your games? Do you have a favorite animal you like to see painted in miniatures?
  24. Disciplined like a hobgoblin, I'm staying home painting some stuff. Here's a Chainmail Miniatures model 88349, hobgoblin fighter I completed last night. This model was sculpted by Mike McVey and produced by Wizards of the Coast in 2001 for the Drazen's Horde faction. I used Reaper’s MSP acrylics to paint it. Stay safe and disciplined.
  25. Hellborn Troll from WizKids' Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures I stopped at AC Moore today and picked up one of the FolkArt Pickling Washes I didn't have while my wife was shopping for school play costume materials. Nearby I found FolkArt Ultra Dyes and picked up two colors to check out; Purple Rain and Pucker Up (a yellow). I have enjoyed using the Glass Enamels with the long cure time before and thought these might work similarly. I decided to wash my troll with the Purple Rain to see how it comes out and goes on. It's fairly thick out of the bottle but I might not have shaken it enough. It was taking forever to dry so I hit it with some Testors Dullcote to speed the process and reduce the shine. It's glossy like inks. Next, I used Reaper Blood Red to give him the Hellborn look I wanted. Then I pulled out Reaper Violet Shadow to get his hair, teeth and claws darkened. I then went back over the boney bits with the FolkArt Ultra Dye. It'll put the glossy touch to the claws and teeth. I am quite happy with him so far. Stay tuned and Enjoy!
