  1. well, it seems to have been not quite a year since my last post, and a bit longer since my last post to Show Off. In the meantime, Nissiana and I have purchased a house, which ate most of the Fall, Winter and Spring, and our Summer has been, per usual, filled with rehearsals and performances. Although I am currently imbroiled with a production of "The Three Musketeers," I've managed to unpack some paint kit and brought it to work. My recent lunch breaks have yielded a passel of kobolds and a pile of rats, both of which will likely lurk the basements of Sharn (or the waste drain of an alchemist
  2. So here's my Goblin Shaman, bare as the day he was cast. (And totally not an excuse to try out the new forum upload). No idea what I'm doing with this dood, so let's see where it goes.
  3. I bought these some 12 years back, and only just now realized they were mispacked. I have a duplicate, as you can see, but one of those "stabber and board" guys should presumably be the kobold with a spear shown in the store picture. Just noting that they came that way in the pack, and it's not just a random batch I pulled out of The Drawer of Horrors. A kobold is a kobold, and I'll need some... *counts* 5 more packs of these, so I imagine some spear dudes will appear there. I'm especially fond of the big one, who definitely lifts.
  4. Here's the finished mini for this WIP thread. I'm continuing my attempt to paint these things up quickly and work on my speed, so there's some rough blending happening etc. And I just noticed a couple mold lines that I'd forgotten to clean up. And the spines came out far too white... Should have added more colour there. Anyway! Would still appreciate comments, suggestions, etc.
  5. This is one of my favorite monster pieces. I love the sculpt and he is a blast to paint. I have a couple more that I want to do, though I'm not sure what colors I will use next. This one was pretty basic, a green, dirty troll. I may need him this coming weekend for a session, so I wanted to make sure he was ready. Total time invested is a little over 2 hours, mainly due to letting layers and varnish dry. Enjoy! CAH
  6. In keeping with the desert like theme, I painted these two snakemen as another possible encounter for my players. I loosely based the paint jobs on a brown cobra. Both pieces we painted in conjunction with two other pieces during our Saturday online painting group. The markings on the cobra are my first attempt at freehand on something other than lines on clothing. Obviously I have more work to do, but I'm getting there. The prairie tick was done for someone else. He mentioned that he had a Deadlands game that was heading into a desert region. I really like how the bloodsack on t
  7. Buenos dias, greetings and salutations fellow reaperites. I am starting a wip for various reasons. I am trying to motivate myself to complete a few more lead/bone dollies. I hope to continue updating this as I make progress. Feedback of any kind will be greatly appreciated. Even the harshest critics. But you guys are an awesome bunch. For starters I am half way done on this Warg. Sculpted by Jason Weibe and in the bones material. I am attempting to make the warg appear if he is prowling on a moon lit nite. The shadows are a blue paint I can not recollect off the top of my head.
  8. And another batch that got hit at the end with project fatigue. There's some goofiness going on here that I should really have addressed, but... yeah. (I also should have been more careful not to cut off part of the one poor goblin's foot as I was trying to trim off the broccoli. ) This particular batch is intended for use as random grunts, and I'm still continuing my quest to get a bunch of stuff painted in a relative hurry as a way to speed up my overall painting. They were a lot of fun to paint and they're silly and remind me of a more bloodthirsty version of the goblins malefactus has bee
  9. Hi everyone, My painting isn't going so well unfortunately, because of shaking hands from the side effects from my new anti-epilepsy meds. So i spend the past week building a base for my Clay Golem and just finished it. Built out of blue foam, some milliput and creativity Hope you all like it! Any C&C is, as always, much appreciated!!
  10. Had a discussion aa little while back at the FLGS's paint night about color theory and how wolves don't have to be brown or grey, they can be blue or PINK & PURPLE! So I decided to make an example and paint one of the Bones 77009: Werewolfs For added difficulty I did the entire mini in 1.5 hours, I used the package he came in as my palette and a $1 Size 4 Flat brush. The Punk Rock Pink didn't come out quite as bright as I wanted but I still like it. The claws were abysmal. Even if I had spent time cleaning up mold lines etc I think they would have been ugly. There was a spot of fur
  11. Here are the three orcs I worked on today. They are for a game I have coming up on Sunday evening. I started the WIP post around 2pm. I had been working on them for about 30-45 minutes by that point. I wanted the hand on the shield be reminiscent of a decaying claw of some sort. I think It came out pretty good. Enjoy! CAH
  12. Well I got back from my second week of vacation in August, and realized I only had week and a day to get my quota done for the Resolutionary Painting Challenge for this month! A quick Sunday night dig through my drawers of Bones and I found some Kobolds to speed paint. These 9 were painted in maybe 4 hours over 5 lunch hours last week. Just base coats and a few details. Then brought home and Quickshaded. I then sprayed the first 3 with anti-shine, which frosted (due to the humidity I assume). So they were coated with a gloss brush on to try to save them. It brought them back som
  13. 02520 Troll Matron and 02416 Cave Troll by Ben Siens For July's Bonus Challenge, Murica! American Trolls, or Trolls Gothic (linked because of troll titties) https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10206213286268897&set=a.10204045556237001.1073741836.1166934784&type=1&theater Inspired by: American Gothic is a painting by Grant Wood in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. Wood's inspiration came from what is now known as the American Gothic House, and his decision to paint the house along with "the kind of people I fancied should live in that house." Th
  14. I apologize sincerely for flooding the forum, but this is the last one, should be for a while. Ben Siens's Bones kobolds. My low-level monster parties are pretty much complete. Thanks for looking!
  15. GOBLINS. So many goblins. I had a scenario to run and it needed more goblins than I had. Hence the clear solution: paint more goblins. I haven't had much time for painting (or the arm for it, hooray tennis elbow) so these guys got painted in about three hours I think, with just enough lead time for me to throw three coats of sealer on them prior to game time. My existing goblins had black broccoli bases and this scenario was set in snow, so they got white bases. Since the players were going to be stuck with them for a while, I wanted to color-code them and ended up doing that with their cl
  16. The young blue dragon had been driven from the clutch by it's mother. The nearby lands were not friendly for the young blue. To the east was the hall of the Fire Giants. To the west was the desert. The dragon was forced to raid the herds kept by the giants and they responded. Young Prince Skorg was charged with bringing the dragon to heel. He and his chosen giants fought a running battle with the dragon for days, but in the end it was Skorg that struck the killing blow. He had earned the right to have the skin of the blue made into a fine cloak. Skorg has worn the cloak ever since, eve
  17. This little fellow is actually my worst paint job to date. That's because he was an exercise in seeing how quickly I could get a tabletop quality mini that I was happy with. The answer: approximately 5 hours. ...Yeah, I'm totally not cut out for speed painting, lol. I did try my best to let go of all my perfectionist tendencies and do a minimal amount of touch-ups, as well as using unthinned paint to make things go faster, but in the end I got rather distracted by the fiddly details (like eyes, nails, lining things). It was quite refreshing to let loose and not care if it came out pe
  18. Here are some guys I painted up, unfortunately too late, for the PF game I was running the end of last year. I kind of decided, after painting their feathers with Nightmare Black (from the Halloween ghoulie bags), that their clan would be the Blue Crows. Seemed fitting. These were my first PF goblins to paint. They were quite fun. All by Ben Siens. I really love the goblin commando--just a great sculpt. I kind of love goblin dogs, too. Not exactly a goblin dog, but still. I really tried to make him gross With the Bones guys, these were my first Bones painted using Liners to "prime" the
  19. This guy has been floating around my painting desk for almost a year, so I figured it was about time to finish him up. He's been the subject of experiments from 3 different minis, so it's about time I finished him before he became the subject of more! :) He's got black skin because I was testing which shade I wanted to use on Yephima; also, I wasn't sure whether I would be painting her skin up realistically or not, and wanted another mini to practice on. This was really intended to be a fast paint job, so he turned out decent table-top. :) Huzzah! --OneBoot :D EDIT: Modified a cou
  20. Hey, folks. Picked up some kobolds for the PF game I'm running, and I finally got them painted. These are the metal set of four, by Ben Siens, from the Dark Heaven line. I'm afraid my photos are letting me down even more than my painting skills. I haven't figured out my setup, yet. I was really proud of how I highlighted these guys with orange highlights--I'm still working to eschew the too-white highlights and all--but they're washing pretty well in these pictures. Everything I'm trying lately tends to be either too light or too dark. Hopefully some of it's getting through, though.
  21. Finally--FINALLY--finished the Goblin War Band on which I started a month and a half ago, before we moved. Reaper stuff, sculpted by Ben Siens. These are sculpts I really love--I've got some PF goblins headed my way, and they're cool, but I really dig the more traditional take. Or, at least, that seems more traditional to me, anyway. I likes 'em. I don't know how well these are going to show, but I feel like I had some measure of success with these. I didn't over-highlight, at least not with the super-whitened green like I did with the orcs, while back. I used the same home-mixed green for
  22. Lathula, Female Barbarian, Reaper 03019, sculpted by Ben Siens, painted by me. I like half-orcs. They always seem to be painted with black hair, but I figured since orcs don't have hair it would be the human parent who provides the hair color. So why not a redhead? I didn't paint her hair shiny, though, because it kind of looks greased up and pulled back. I used this figure in my tutorial on how to paint illusionistic grass.
