  1. A quick followup to the earth oni I posted last night, to help dig into my Rokugan project. Ninjas are awesome, so I had to lead with them for the clans. They also make good generic bad guys since ninjas are pretty prominently featured in most fantasy RPG settings at this point. Because I have soooooo many minis to paint for this setting and I am just starting on this big project speed is the name of the game (well, that and having a 3yo and a 5yo makes anything that takes time impossible). I painted these in a few sittings, but it took much longer than it should have because the black paint was giving me trouble. So much black. Originally I had gone with a blue black but it just didn't look right (and too similar to colors from another clan). So, I completely repainted all of it using primarily the dark elf skin triad with vampiric skin for highlights giving it a more purple-grey hue. That recipe worked nicely for me and i'll be sure to tap it for future scorpion clan models. simple paint job, but that black really was tough to pull off. One of the nice things about the old clan war blisters is that most packs come with 4 unique sculpts of the same troop type for lots of variation, making them ideal for skirmish and RPG games where unique mooks are nice. I have a few more sets like this in the queue before I start on the personalities. many more to come!
  2. A couple of figures painted during the July paint binges and challenges. 77132: Barnabus Frost A female swashbuckler from the German company Assassin
  3. Kirin the Heretic from Reaper's Pathfinder Miniatures Range. I painted this a while ago but forgot to post it.
  4. 40-ton Battlemech Assassin Jungle/Forest Paint Scheme I will take better photos soon. Reaper Griffon Tan, Vallejo Yellow Green, Reaper Walnut Brown are the main colors.
  5. So definitely a work-in-progress, but getting very near the point of "I cannot look at this anymore without screaming," I present: CAV CITY! Details follow the pictures for any interested parties. DETAILS: This is a 4x2 section of game board. Full-size, my board is 6x4. I have enough road and buildings to cover the whole thing in a decently dense city section, especially if I throw in a tree-filled park, hill, or river. Buildings are blue electrical boxes spraypainted with "windows' painted on. Road is Styrene sheet painted with stone textured spray paint. Cars and buses: Ordered off Amazon - basically off-brand micro machines. Fun detail: only the buses are articulated enough to notice this, but these are UK-style "Drive on the left" vehicles! No idea how long this actually took to build as I work on it in my spare time, but I'll say that I started buying blue boxes in, I think, January. STILL TO DO: Road lines, a few more building details, and tidy up the edgework on the game board (you can still see wood in a few pics). STILL WANT: A bridge or two...that's about it. Otherwise, IMHO, it fits the bill for a futuristic / alien pre-fab city. An FTL ship jumps into system, dispatches a handful of dropships loaded up with snap-together plasteel and ferrocrete shelters, industrial rollers lay down pavement, and eager colonists are ready to begin their exciting new lives right up until they're declared collateral damage as a bunch of big, stompy robots smash them to pieces! Happy gaming!
  6. This weekend I completed Zalash, Dark Elf Assassin, from the Bones 1 Kickstarter "Dark Elves" set. I thought I would take the opportunity to try an experiment with this figure; painting him all in black, and simply using drybrushed highlights to give a hint of color. A always, C and C welcome.
  7. This is Hasslefree's HFC002 "Mineko". I am not satisfied with how she came out. I was trying to do something way too ambitious with her clothes and they got kind of out of control. She is a part of my clearing out of my Shelf of Shame, "Pingo's Conga Line of Half-Finished Minis". Sometimes you just need to get things finished and on the gaming table.
  8. Hello, I used to paint Games Workshop miniatures when I was a kid, but was put off for many years by the price. Having found out about Reaper recently I decided to get back into it. I picked up the Learn to Paint Kit, a few extra Reaper miniatures and some extra paints/brushes. The valkyrie I have attached was my first attempt after a long break, and now I am getting onto the mouslings. I am having some difficulties though. I would love to hear any feedback on these difficulties I list or any other criticism or advice. With the valkyrie there are some parts I am quite happy with. Her right eye was never great, and has got messed up a bit somehow (I am dreading fixing it, maybe I should get some greenstuff and fashion an eyepatch?). Also her face has a kind of chalky look to it that I don't know how to avoid. I didn't have any gold paint, so I tried to do her armor as leather with metal features. On the chest that seems to have gone quite badly. For the hair I think it could do with more "depth" but I am having trouble working out how to achieve that. Her base I am actually quite happy with (in contrast to the other miniatures). As cliched as it is, I was going for an "evil albino" look with the mousling assassin. Having looked again at the stock photo in the store I may try to put some of the caucasian flesh colour I have on his nose. I had tried mixing up a pink before but it looked way too "valentines day". His eyes are also looking pretty flat, and I'm also having some trouble making his fur look "furry". The bases on these mouslings (and some other miniatures I have) have been a real challenge to get looking right. Recently I have been trying basecoating with shadowed stone, washing with brown liner, and highlighting with leather brown, but whatever I do I can't get it where I'm happy with it. I decided to do the druid more as a wizard (I bought a trio of reds for a dragon I am holding off on painting so I want to use those). I have had issues painting the orb in his staff (I want it to have some sort of blue mystical look). I was having problems with the colour of the staff or the orb flowing into the crevice between them and looking bad, so I did a sort of outline with diluted brown liner and now plan to paint the orb "up to" the edge without the paint flowing into it. I am happy with his eyes, but his fur is also a struggle. I was going for "black mouse" though I then switched to "dark grey mouse" so I could try to get some shading in. The thief and beekeeper I am really just basecoating for now (I include them here so I can follow up with them later). I had some trouble with the pale saffron yellow being weird, but I think it just required far more shaking than I was giving it. Thank you for reading.
  9. I would love to throw this little guy into one of my adventures.. if I got to have adventures anymore.
  10. This lady is going to be a part of different skirmish game warbands. Mainly Necromunda and Mordheim. The little mushrooms/plants on the base are made of dried grape wines.
  11. This is the mouseling assassin that goes with the mouseling thief I painted earlier. I didn't want to go with a plain black cloak. I wanted it to look like red velvet. It does not look like red velvet but I like it anyway. He is a little albino mouse with beady little red eyes. His base is warped a bit and he doesn't want to stand straight so he will be glued to another base.
  12. I painted Deladrin for SamuraiJack for the Fall Miniature Exchange. SamuraiJack was actually the first guy I received a miniature from in the exchanges, back in early 2013 when the exchanges were being run by recruittons. The color recipe for the cloak is from the Scale75 "Elven Colors" set, and I think it's pretty awesome looking and have used it on several miniatures already.
  13. After a complete restart (rare for me), I finished up my first model from Tin Man Miniatures. I don’t recall anyone of this description showing up in ERB’s Mars series, but it has been a long time since I read them. I was super-excited to find a miniature with pigtails, and although red martians are supposed to have dark hair there was already so much dark on her that she needed something lighter. After painting the hair, it was TOO light and drew way too much attention, so she needed something else to balance it out a bit – thus the periwinkle bikini. I mean, once you’ve committed to wearing a mask/capelet/bikini combo, is coordinating color really a concern anymore? The base is from Micro Arts Studios, skull pointed forward so we know she’s bad-butt. The main thing that bother me about her is that she does not have the “butt-toothed vampire†thing going on on the rear of her thighs. I used an airbrush to do the primary levels of skin highlighting, and it really stood out when I tried to paint the back of her legs with a brush. I scraped it off and left it mostly alone.
  14. So, sometimes you have to call it good and move on. No matter how I tried, I couldn't matte the purple satin finish enough for my tastes -- I wanted it to be super-flat, like inky night, and there's still a little shine. Nobody hires a shiny assassin. Nobody. They're too easy to see coming. Anyway, I'm pretty happy otherwise, even if there are rough spots. I learned some things from doing it.
  15. This is a little assassin Mousling, the second of six Mouslings I've painted for a seriously multispecies campaign. WIP thread here. Other Mouslings in this group: A Yeoman, A Ranger, A Thief, A Beekeeper-Falconer, and A Druid
  16. I decided to give him some facial hair, that definitely gave him some attitude. He has kinda bright colors for an assassin, but I figure he makes for a good flashy rogue or ranger instead.
  17. 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.
  18. When I saw this guy in the Dark Sword Miniatures store, I had to have him. Some of my favorite computer games are the Prince of Persia ones and I was definetly getting a Prince of Persia vibe off this guy. When I was looking at concept art from the games I found that the 2009 version of the Prince was perfect inspiration. So I pulled the colors of the scarves, the color of the pants, and the basing from some of the pictures I found. One element of this guy that I love is what I did with the scabbards. They were originally brown but they blended too much with the leather. So I decided to try some freehand wraps to match the ones on his legs and bring the base colors onto the mini. I still cannot believe they turned out this well. He was my entry in the Fantasy Single category at Gateway this past weekend where he got first place. Any input would be appreciated.
  19. With my summer exchange mini 99.99% done, it is time to start on some personal projects. On my work table are two competition entries as well as the start of my Infinity Bakunin Nomad squad. On the two competition entries, I mainly have done base construction. The first base is for a male assassin from Dark Sword. In my mind I have pictured palace/temple ruins in the desert. Why this? Well, the miniature reminds me of this guy: And so, he will be my inspiration for this piece. The big base is for someone special and is still missing elements. Here is where it stands now: It will be a jungle themed base and the hollowed out area is for a resin pour to make a pound/creek. There will be some more rocks/faces/columns on the other side once the minis base is attached. That will be in awhile as I want to do the resin pour before completing any other area of the base in case i have to scrap it. Who is deserving of this base you ask? None other than Narthrax. Lastly we have the beginnings of my Infinity squad, who are just assembled, based, and primed. They will be tabletop quality but if I really like how they turn out I may also enter them in the competition. I know they are just bare bones now, but any input would be appreciated.
  20. This past weekend I completed the Drago Voss (77093) figure from the Bones I "Heroes" set. I wasn't inspired to any particular paint scheme for this figure, so I thought I'd use him to experiment on; doing colored armor on him, and doing him mainly in a single color theme. I'm pleased with the results. He actually turned out better than I had anticipated. For the complete write-up on how I painted him see:http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/08/hero-with-2-weapons-figure-167-of-265.html
  21. After we started the Rise of the Runelords PbP here, I found myself on a mission. I created a catfolk character, Kehrgl (only later would I reflect on the closeness to a certain kind of exercise, LoL, and then decide to keep the name anyway), and I wanted a mini to suit her. And holy crap--catfolk minis are a job to come by. Ones that fit the bill, at least. Luckily, someone directed me to the Panthera Tribe in the 100 Kingdoms game, by Black Orc Games. And there I found some pretty cool cat-people minis. And go figure! Apparently sculpted by Sandra Garrity. Of course I'd like them. I think it's a really nice mini, beyond being simply leaps and bounds by most of the catfolk-types I's finding. I had quite a bit of fun with her, though she was exceedingly simple. Kind of felt my way into the purple--didn't want blue, but still wanted it to feel warm to me (but also cool, I guess; whatever). Decided to put her on a base from Micro Arts Studio. Tried a little vine action with some stuff I got; I swear it doesn't look as much like chopped broccoli irl. I'm pretty pleased with her, all in all. Thanks for looking!
  22. Another Dark Hold goblin from that KS. This was the last I had primed and ready, with his having missed out on the first batch. Thanks for looking!
  23. OK everyone. Not sure how best to post WIP after the fact. So, I'm going to post a few pictures at a time. I was paired to paint for Arc724 in the Summer 2015 Exchange. This was my first time, and his. Here's the link to the Show Off. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63001-02782-warl-hellbore-assassin-exchange-mini-for-2015-summer/ And here is the Fiction: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63011-from-the-personal-holocron-of-master-bel’rheol-force-assassin/ Here are the starting supplies: A few angles of the mini. The base is a 30mm Tau-Ceti base from Secret Weapon. The Shoto (Short Sabers) are sewing needles I picked up at Hobby Lobby.
  24. This is the cyberpunk girl from Chronoscope. Nothing fancy, painted her for gaming, but I like her more than I thought I would. Feedback always welcome, thanks for stopping by!
  25. Judging from the Otherworld Forums wave two of the IndieGoGo campaign is about to be delivered. So I made an effort to finish my last miniatures of wave one. First we have the Elf Male Fighter/Magic User. Secondly the Half Orc Assassin.
