  1. Inarah

    77037: Medusa

    Another member of the current band of beastmen (and women). Front view: link NSFW
  2. Gabbi

    Goblin archer

    Just finished this little bugger. Simple, tabletop-quality paintjob. As a goblin, it's a bit on the large side.
  3. Inarah

    elf girl

    Not sure who the manufacturer is. I put her on one of the CMON bases from their KS last year.
  4. So, I've probably just been watching too many anime shows lately, but I had an idea for an anime-type girl with a bow (and her head shaved all around the sides and just long on the top and done off to the side). I think she came out pretty well. I did a bit of a dolly that I cast in resin. That's why there is a tiny bit of white showing here and there in the midst of all the Green Stuff. There's also a hole in the resin in one leg, so I had to plug that with Green Stuff as well. Anyway, here's a front view... a side view... and a back view. Hope you enjoy her. I'm looking forward to Painting her :=) C&C always welcome!
  5. This weekend I finished up the four Orc Sniper figures from the Bones 1 Kickstarter Orcpoclypse add-on set. I did some minor conversions to a couple of them to help make them look a bit less uniform on the tabletop Looking at the row below; The first orc has his arm sliced at the shoulder and wrist, and repositioned back around to look like he is reaching for an arrow out of his quiver. The second has had his arm sliced at the shoulder and repositioned down to look like he is reaching for his short sword. The third and fourth orcs are unchanged. Nothing fancy with these guys, just a quick paint-up to get them table ready.
  6. So, for my Frostgrave chronomancer warband (which I featured in the WIP thread), I decided I wanted an Egyptian warrior and a Mongolian warrior. However, I couldn't find such figures just readily available and didn't want to wait for shipping. Instead, I got a 3 pack of Reaper Bones skeletal spearmen and made one into the Egyptian. For the Mongolian archer, I used a mini I have had for years that I don't think is actually supposed to be Legolas, but really looks like that sort of elven idea. A decent amount of Green Stuff and paint were involved :=) C&C always welcome!
  7. So, the story behind this character plays on the stereotype of elves as forest dwelling archers. This young gal's elven family decided to move into a town and are making their living as farmers. However, young Gwenevieve here takes great pride in her elven heritage and sneaks off when she's supposed to doing chores to practice with her grandfather's bow. I was going for a simple overalls sort of dress, baggy hand-me-down sleeves from the shirt underneath, and barefoot to convey the peasant status. I also gave her short hair as she was going for function over fashion (much to the chagrin of her poor mother). I'll start throwing paint at her sometime soon (when I sit down with my Halfling shield maiden most likely). I'm a bit disappointed by the quality of the photos, but it's my own fault since I haven't had my wife (the tech support) teach me how to use the digital camera she bought. I can't get it to focus on anything.
  8. So I've had this one finished already for a while but never got him posted. One of the other Stonehaven figures I have, got him painted up and finished. Once again, can't say enough how much I enjoy painting these. They got a bit of heat for being "flat", but that, plus their decent sizes make them relatively simple and enjoyable to paint
  9. Hi folks! Now that Flamehawke's received my Secret Sophie box, I wanted to share the miniature I painted for her. She enjoys mythology so I painted this mini based on the markings of silver foxes (which have darker leg fur patterns). It was really fun to find & paint something that matched with the "kitsune" theme of the Secret Sophie gift. This werefox archer is one of Reaper's "Lady Lycanthropes"in the 03495 pack. I had a bit of a snafu with the top part of the bow breaking off while cleaning which halted the process for over a week, though thanks to some advice from the Reaper Sculpting part of the forum, I was able to sculpt & patch it back up-- hard to tell, huh? She was a lot of fun to paint and I'm so happy to hear she's going to a good home where she may see some game time!! --Mocha
  10. This is my first mini ever. Some feedback would be wonderful. Thanks :)
  11. Here is a figure I started right after RCon '15. In my hotel room to kill time. I started the NMM one way, then I decided to try out the Scale75 Gold NMM paints. I think it came OK even after all the gloss and dullcote. Thanks for looking. C&C (and even Critiques) are welcome. PS: I'm beginning to think next year I need to add painting wood details better to my list of goals
  12. Pochi

    Some mousies!

    When I went to paint day the other day, I didn't want to take any of the minis I need to do for my campaign because I paint with my gaming friends and don't want them to know what to expect. So, I decided to paint some mouselings. They are so cute! These are the first two I have done of the Bones II mouselings. I picked the female archer and the little thief. I borrowed from Pingo when doing the little thief and had his dagger be a rose thorn. Is it appropriate that I "stole" her idea while doing the thief? Ha! Hope you don't mind, Pingo. It was such a clever idea and I thought it was adorable!
  13. Ok, here is a figure I started at RCon. I wanted to get a palette cleansing figure done before I got back to my other WIPs. I didn't realize she was a Bone 2 figure till I got back. So I guess Alistrilee will be my first Bones 2 I paint up. Odd how I'm thinking of doing a figure with all that gold NMM as palette cleansing. Here is where I'm starting from:
  14. My version of Llwellyn Softstrider from Red Box Games. A great sculpt as all other minis in the RBG range. I rushed some parts (the varnishing among them) as I wanted to get it ready for the next weekend but still he turned out nicely.
  15. This is one of six Mouslings I've painted out of the ten new ones from the Bones II Kickstarter. I'm a little ambivalent about the "girly" Mouslings with the bosoms and the hair and the feminine accoutrements. I prefer to think of the Mouslings overall as general-purpose, could be boys or girls. Anyhow, this one, like the rest of them, has fun and not too fiddly details. WIP thread here. Other painted Mouslings: 92743, Archer (Robin Hood), 92744, Druid, 92746, Thief, 92747, Beekeeper, 92749, Assassin
  16. This is one of the new Bones Mouslings from Reaper's second Kickstarter. I painted up six (out of ten) of them for a campaign. Two of them are archers. This one is sculpted up like a tiny Robin Hood. WIP thread here. Other painted Mouslings: 92744, Druid, 92745, Archer (squire), 92746, Thief, 92747, Beekeeper, 92749, Assassin
  17. Here's a little fellow I painted as a warm-up: Well, what was supposed to be a warm-up ended up taking three days. First, the sand for the basing material ended up getting messed up during application, meaning I had rinse it twice and start again. The I noticed the paint was getting rubbed off the high areas (it's not quite waterproof), so I had to repaint certain areas. Finally the matte varnish I put on frosted a bit, so even after reapplying gloss and matte varnish again, it looks dusty. At that point I called it quits and skipped the grass flocking. Still I like him, and he's good enough for tabletop. My son now wants me to let him play as a skeleton in an RPG session, with this as the figure.
  18. Yet Another Archer; A Kobold; A Tank; and some Fighter Plane Tokens The archer is another one to go with some of the previous bowmen. I hope to get a small painted unit of them by the time this is over. He is an old GW plastic. This guy just sorta got slopped with what ever color was left over after painting some of the other things. He was the use up the paint miniature. I think his legs are haldardier tabard red from last month's batch of halberd guys. Boots are kobold basecoat brown. The Kobold is a bonesium version, white plastic, 77010. I mixed faded purple with some lighter color —fire orange maybe— to get the brown for his basecoat. It did not cover the archer's shoes very well. Later he got drowned in brown liner. The tip of his spear is the same copper that was used to damp brush highlights onto the tank. The tank and the fighter tokens are 1:1200 scale resin models from Spartan Games. The basecoat on the tank is kolbold basecoat brown with a lot of brown liner mixed in because it wanted to dry out too soon. Later some pure brown liner got shoved into the deep places and kinda blended in. Then bronzey highlights. The airplane tokens are responsible for the archer's dingy blue tunic. First paint on them was Black Ink on the edges. Then they got a top coat of Sky Blue, avoiding the tops of the planes (archer got the left overs). Then the then planes got dabbed with metallic either silver or bronze. Then the edges got some silver to pick out the girder work. The final step was to wash them with Blue Liner. I was trying to get some edging and shadows under the planes. I needed to experiment on some of these. I have boat loads of these for the game they are from. [edits: Bold Tags; Only one L in kobold, added some paint colors, airplane token steps... ]
  19. I just completed the Alistrilee, female elf archer, figure from the Bones II Core Set. I had actually put this figure in my Bones "out" box when I first sorted my Kickstarter. But since I have been bitten by the Frostgrave bug recently, and needed to boost my warband recruits, I pawed through the "out" box to look for suitable candidates who look attired for winter adventuring. I had culled this figure originally as it is rather plain and lacks a dynamic pose, and I already had a selection of elf archers from Bones I, but her hood and cape made her perfect for exploring the ruins of Felstad. And for those of you who like a close-up to see the details: I'm really pleased with how this figure turned out, and in the end I'm glad she was rescued, as I think this figure has a lot of subtle grace to it, that I missed on first passing. For the complete painting write-up, please see my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/09/alistrilee-elf-archer-bones-ii-figure.html
  20. So I'm painting up some of the Bones II Mouslings to be used as ship's crew and NPCs in a fairly weird game. These aren't all of them. There's also a mouse king and queen (with pointy hat with veil), a samurai, and a classic wizard, all nice but not quite for my purposes. To be honest, I have mixed feelings about the buxom little "girl" mice. I prefer to think of all Mouslings as something you'd have to be a mouse to tell the difference, like in real life. But gosh, they are cute. At the moment I am referencing real mice for coloring. One Mousling is going to be black, one white, and four a kind of mousy brown. There will probably be some variation on this. Here the six I'm doing are, cleaned up and washed with Reaper's Brown Liner, and a bit of paint added to the white mouse. Here the basic colors of the fur are blocked in and I've painted their tails and ears pink. Black mice seem to have a slightly darker pink, but on the whole all mice seem to have delicate pink tails and ears. Real mice have tiny, pink, handlike feet, while the Mouslings have more teddybear-like paws. I am compromising by painting their fingers and toes pink.
  21. Work In Progress for RBG: Edele of Aelfheim By Tre Manor This miniature was a commission for my D&D group. I added the flowers as an afterthought but am thoroughly pleased how they came out. I'm getting better with static grass but not where I want to be. Going to do more research. I just had to call it with this piece or I would have never got it done. It turned out well but not as well as I would have liked. I was continuing a new technique I did with a previous miniature. This is the third John (Tre) Manor Sculpt I have painted. I'm fond of his style. Thanks everyone! C&C Welcome! Don't forget to check out my blog - Iron Bristle Studios - for my complete list. The link is in my signature.
  22. Edele of Aelfheim by Tre Manor -Elf After a swift polish of this figure I Greenstuffed it on the base. I'm very pleased with the way it came out. I got to work on this one so quick I didnt get many WIP shots in but I am not finish with her yet. I also got some hair highlights! What do you think? And here is one i with a little more shading!
  23. So just finished this one this evening, getting the grass glued on to the base. I think this one looks better in person than it does in the photo just because of how the photo actually came out, but I've been whining a lot about my photography lately, so it's probably just me. Anyway, tried to keep kind of a cool but basic color palette, ended up imitating the Estonian flag quite a lot. This one is from the same series as the other elf I just finished, sculpted by Tom Meier, in the eighties at some point, need to look at the base to check. Anyhow, enjoy!
  24. With my collection being rather "large" these days, I've been trying to knock out tabletop quality work, and have shown a few here lately. Was time to slow down and enjoy the process more. I wouldn't say these are contest level, but hopefully better than tabletop! Anyone else find themselves speed painting far too often? (Shaman needs some basing still.) Mini numbers for those that might want to paint one of these themselves 02711 elf 14479 dryad 2805 shaman
  25. I got Lily and Nez done for my Mice and Mystics game. Kinda fast painted them but I like how they turned out.
