  1. This month I am at the Mountains of Minis, delving them with gusto, having done mould-line carving, scrubbing, boiling, assembling etc a large portion of the roughly 20-ish minis I got in the Bones 2 shipment. And sacrificing the required amounts of fingerblood, of course. At any rate, what few minis I actually get around to painting this month will all go into the resolutionary challenge total. The complete list will be in the challenge thread post. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. Seeing as I am momentarily sick of the bendy bones, I have painted some metal minis for a change. Hereby I present a new series entitled At the Mountains of Minis: The Unspeakable Mouth Which showcases minis with slightly overstated eating orifices (well, what did you think it would be about?) Volume 1: Abyssal Maw: From “Chainmail†the year 2002 Dungeons and Dragons metal miniature line by Wizards of the Coast (when they tried to emulate Games Workshop in size and somewhat in style of the minis). Chainmail had a few nice minis and several bad ones. The game was not a resounding success, and was replaced the following year by the “Dungeons and Dragons Miniatures Gameâ€, with prepainted plastic minis in random booster packs. Metal, 30mm base.
  2. For the last 3-4/4 for the Feb RP Challenge, 2x of the Orc Marauder as seen in the LTPK. Somethin' feels a little off in the finished product but I can't tack down just what yet Better pics will likely come when I get time to setup/use my lightbox.
  3. Angry female ogre..nuff said. This miniature was entirely painted, as all my figures are with a Round #1 brush from Reaper and Reaper MSP. I've dedicated myself to steadily improving my glazing practices throughout the year and this is making me feel like I'm getting somewhere. As with all my painting, none of the shading or highlighting you see is a result of photography. The paints I used: Ultramarine shadow, blue liner, tanned leather, auburn shadow, burgundy wine (a new favorite), misty grey, dark elf skin, woodstain brown, earth brown, blackened brown, brains pink, driftwood brown, fresh blood, vampiric shadow, splintered bone, dirty bone, ruddy leather. Since I'm terrible at WIP threads I thought I would include a synopsis of the painting of the skin: The ogre got a base-coat of ultramarine shadow Wash of blue liner, emphasis on the "darker" areas 2 glazes of a color combo of (2 brains pink: 3 driftwood brown) Blue liner wash 1 glaze of burgundy wine 1 highlighting glaze of (1 brains pink: 1 driftwood brown...6 drops of water added to that mix) 1 highlighting glaze of the above with burgundy wine added to blend 1 glaze of the above with fresh blood and brains pink added 1 glaze of the above with vampiric shadow added 1 glaze of (1 brains pink: 1 splintered bone) 2 glazes of 1:1:1 of brains pink, burgundy wine, driftwood brown I hope you like what I've done but I'm always open to C&C and any thoughts on improvement.
  4. Over in the Randomness Thread, I was lamenting the state of my painting desk and how it was killing any interest I had in painting. I finally bit the bullet and started organizing. Ub3r asked for before and after pics, and I obliged. While cleaning and stowing, I came across the case with some of my earliest minis and figured since I had the camera out already, I may as well snap some pics. I didn't bother to set up my dedicated photo area, but they seem to have come out ok enough. So without further adieu, I give you a pictorial timeline of my miniature painting. These two knights are some of the earliest example of my work. They are either Heartbreaker or Citadel and have seen plenty of action over the years. The swordless one on the left originally had a crescent moon crest on his helm that I promptly removed in what may have been my first conversion. These fine fellows are part of the Three Stage Fighters (from Grenadier? maybe Ral Partha I put them away and I'm too lazy to go check). They were painted around the same time as the knights (late 80's).
  5. This is the Chainmail Mordengard Dwarf Fighter from Wizards of the Coast. I am painting my Mordengard Dwarves with an alternate color scheme to represent a planetouched dwarven subrace. This dwarven subrace all have grey skin, all black eyes, and metallic hair.
  6. Hi everyone, I'm going to try the WIP thing to keep me motivated, and to help me improve on a few things. Most of these are mid-process, or very lightly started. I have a specific way I paint, and I really only photograph about once a week. So, without further adieu, here begins my wip. First up, we have The Bones Gnoll, about 2/3 of the way through how I paint, but there are several areas to improve upon. My intent is to give a more rusted look to the metallics, and to bring up the leather straps. In person, I'm happy with the upper fur, with the feet needing improvement (and the leg wraps and flail wraps). Eyes are going to be something fun. Next up we have Vanja, Fire Giant Princess, the metal version (the bones version will be more traditionally coal-black with red highlights). This is a very early stage wip of her for me. I'm starting with skin tones, bringing them up to Vallejo Pale Flesh. Next we have the Bones Darkrasp, Death Priest. I've started an attempt at OSL with him, and would very much like suggestions on this. I really like how the scythe is coming, but the robes leave a LOT to be desired. The cloak looks like a burlap/linen (which was my intent with all the drybrushing) and I'm happy with it overall, including the OSL effects on the hood. Finally, we have my 2-year-old's wip of the bones Unicorn
  7. I'm planning on painting Ulf Gormundr soon, and I want to get him as close as i can to the painted example on this website. So maybe someone can help me out with some of my questions. To be blunt: How did they do that blue chainmail? How did they do that NMM Gold? How did they get the blonde hair to look so real? On the subject of blonde hair, I have the reaper 3 tier Blonde paints. It works well, but it doesn't come out looking as good as Ulf's hair. While i'm on the subject of blonde hair, I'm also planning on painting Seoni, as she is on this site, and her blonde hair looks post worthy as well. Appreciate any help. Sorry so many questions.
  8. I thought this was a pretty nice way to get a decent chainmail bag. Love the idea of adding rubber rings to allow more flexibility. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/259903200/stretchy-chainmail-dice-bags
  9. Hello Gamers! I took all of the wonderful advice I received from you guys & gals from my previous post and tried to implement it into this Dwarven fighter. Please let me know what you think and how I can improve on my next mini. Thanks ahead of time. Take care.
  10. This is (Razet)...an adventure group deadly foe. Razet sold his soul to chaos and has the ability to vanish and teleport back to a location where he is brought back to life so he can continue his hunting & killing of all humans. The only way to kill him (so he stays dead) is to kill the necromancer he is employed by first. I don't rember the company that released this metal figure. He is a game playing piece.
  11. This is an Abyssal Ravager from Wizards of the Coast. As in D&D description I've chosen the green color to give it a venomous aspect.
  12. This is a War Ape from Wizards of the Coast.
