  1. I looked at this sculpt with a GREAT amount of fear and nervousness. Complicated, Multi-small parts, and just a complete display of "I will make you jump through hoops". It lived up to its threat. Gluing was tedious, and physically painful. Sharp ! There is nothing really intuitive on this piece, even the head goes on crooked !! You have to do a difficult mini in order to grow, and this one will provide ample opportunity! ROFL. She is fun, Challenging, and color wise, a field of flowers waiting to be painted. Hope you enjoy. Give me a comment about what you t
  2. Here it is! Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms - Anthropomorphic Animals, DSM8036, Hamster Mage with Staff. It was sculpted by Dave Summers. This model was a little more challenging to paint. I'am very happy with the final result, I like how his red outfit and I'm glad I chose that color. I hope you like it too! Comments and critiques are very welcome.
  3. My 2016 project list is relatively short, but populated with larger figures. I will am going to paint 28mm minis, but I'm focusing on 54mm and larger for the experience and learning opportunities they bring. First on the list is the orc shaman from Dark Sword Miniature's Journey to the Gathering vignette, which is based on Larry Elmore's painting of the same name. After about 3 hours of work, not counting prep time, he is starting to take shape. I decided to keep close to the colors used in the original painting, so blue skin tones it is. The skin is based around Midnight Blue, Ashen Blue,
  4. Incredible, that's the only way I can describe the experience of Painting this Miniature. Tom Meier is know for his skill, but he has this ability to put so much detail into the smallest of Mini's. This is NO exception. Loved working on this mini (look out for the antlers..."SHARP". The Mini is also very small. I have experimented all over the place on this mini. Colors were the basic Wash/primer/than Brown Liner. I then started mixing Nightmare black (which is really blue) and put on about seven coats, mixed vampire whites into pallet, Cavalry reds, wash
  5. Hi everyone, I'm showing off something different this time. Here is a model from Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms - Anthropomorphic Animals, DSM8035, Hamster Knight with Spear. It was sculpted by Dave Summers. I hope you'll enjoy it! C&C very welcome.
  6. Here is another model from Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms - Anthropomorphic Animals, DSM8025, Hamster Thief. It was sculpted by Dave Summers. I hope you'll enjoy this one too! Again C&C very welcome.
  7. Amazingly, this only took me two weeks to finish ! I think the major challenge to this Miniature is the paint choices, and figuring out how you are going to base it. Lots of thought went into those two factors. I selected regulation heraldic colors and stuck to the rules of using them. I had fun playing with application, and layering on of the colors. While it looks simple, just for the record "It Ain't" ! So here is the Otter Knight with Sword and Shield by DSM. Hope you enjoyed my efforts, and drop me a note. Love to read what you have to say all the time.
  8. And here we are - after 36 hours of building time and another 18 hours of drying, the owl mage is finally done. Check here for the WIP Thread ->Let's Make a Present! Owl Mage<-
  9. Here we go again. If you don’t want to know what led to the whole “Let’s make a present”-stuff, feel free to scroll down to the first picture. I have to admit: I am not world’s best painter. To be honest – I am far away from that. I cannot remember color theory, keep forgetting important steps or read a tutorial just to throw it away ‘cause I cannot imagine how I should turn the advices into actual results. Life is hard … Anyway – it seems that persons in my proximity have caught attention of what I am trying to do and figure that it is actually *good* and from tim
  10. This has been one long term challenge paint job! Assembly has been a bear, AND the sword with arm just wants to bend at every touch. So get sets for some tough going in the glue up stage. The painting has been fun, especially when I switched color schemes mid miniature :) The blue black, sapphire black, Ruby red scheme had orange added to the mix. I also changed from a plain base to a mountainous base, with shrubbery ! Lots of changes you can do. Had a blast in the long run. Hope you enjoy the results. Leave me a note please. Here are some ph
  11. I painted this mini for one of my friends as a gift. I love Patrick Keith's sculpts. I also love Jessica Rich's paint jobs featured on Dark Sword's gallery page for this mini - my first attempt at painting the breasts didn't look so great so I was able to use the close-ups to get them to come out much better. Can you guess what character she is supposed to be? I'm hoping some of you can get the right answer so that my friend will also be able to figure out who she is. Hint Answer
  12. So I mentioned working on a few old minis while I was also working on My Women in Horror Tribute... this is the thread for my continued work on those this spring. The oldest is Dark Sword's Male Fighter with Spear. I got that for a GURPS campaign PC that fizzled out. I had done crazy magic blue eyes, and a very thin layer of green on the cloak, and then it's been sitting on the shelf since 2013. I haven't felt capable of tackling it. it's got tiny eyes. Next I started working on the smaller of the fierce felines, to do some weird approximation of my cat Moose (in my profile ph
  13. Nan is completed. Thanks for everyone's input from the WIP I did. This is something much much different that I usually would do. I went out on a limb, and am very happy with the results. This is experimenting out on the ledge for me. I actually had no idea what I was getting into! ROFL. The sculpt (being a Meier) is exemplary, and astonishing. I wanted earth tones in this mini, and I was keeping her grounded in many ways. I was trying to amp the emotions that were displayed, and get that in focus. No hero with bow, shield, sword, or mace; just an old lady with her convictions, an
  14. Posting this now while I think of it, but it could be a little bit before I get started; I was prepping a bunch of minis yesterday.... I noticed that Dark Sword had a few cats in their Critter Kingdoms KS (I was there for the bunnies....). Decided I would paint them up as our cats for my wife (shhhh, its a surprise). I have three figs so far, so will need to order another at some point, since we have four cats. But to start with, I'm going to paint Nom - Cat Paladin (DSM8079): as the fearless leader of our band of cats, Marty: Should be interesting trying to get both t
  15. I know some of you have already seen this guy on facebook (thank you for your feedback there!) but I wanted to go ahead and get this guy posted in show off before I slip away into madness painting DDS2 in 7 days. Originally I'd planned on painting this guy for my father as an xmas present but when it became obvious that I wasn't going to have enough time to paint a second figure in time, I decided to give him to my mother instead because she follows my painting on facebook and I knew she'd appreciate a painted mini as a gift a little more. She loved him, although we both agreed that I made th
  16. So I'm painting this guy up as a Christmas present for my father. For once I'm starting to paint Christmas presents prior to 3 days before Christmas! Not a lot to show at this point. I cleaned him up, then used brush-on primer on him, then started basecoating his head, then started basecoating the dragon..... and then I realized that it's going to be really difficult to paint the ground beneath him without destroying everything else, so I switched to brown liner for the base. I'll likely drybrush it tomorrow and essentially "finish" the base before I do any additional basecoating as othe
  17. So my last little project is a Christmas present for my wife. We've got a soon to be fifteen year old dog, Bubbles, who is a 3/4 Chihuahua and 1/4 Cocker Spaniel. Now it is utterly impossible, short of having somebody sculpt it, to find such a mix, but I was at least able to find a Chihuahua mage from Dark Sword Miniatures, an incredible figure sculpted by Dave Summers. They call her an Inca Chihuahua mage, but with a few more Aztecky/Mexican colors, I think she turned out okay for what I need her to be. So as to why I'm swearing off Super Glue gel. So last night, all was good, I ha
  18. Since I tossed a vacation into the middle of working on this mini, it has been a tough time getting back to it. I usually love all things Dark Sword; however the assembly of this mini left a LOT to be desired. The arms and shield were next to impossible. Once some pre-painting, and the shield was in place things moved along better. It became a great deal of fun by the end. I tried to keep the basing simple, I want the attention going to the "Brave Cat", and his display of emotion. So here is Brave Sir Robin - Scaredy Cat. Your comments, critiques, and likes are solicited, and
  19. I've been keeping myself busy by painting up Friar Tuck The Toad, while everyone was at Reapercon ! Welcome back. I really enjoy painting the Anthropomorphic lines, and I really wasn't too excited about doing this one at first. Fun looking, but I felt SOO limited by color selection. Once I started the priming something hit, and I found myself experimenting up and down the color spectrum. Dark browns, to chalk browns...those brown robes have a lot of color building up to the color it is now. I took the advice of Gadgetman and used a yellow instead of gold on the mantle around his brown c
  20. This has taken a lot longer than I anticipated! First of all, It's a MAGNIFICENT piece of work by Tom Meier. It is 30mm (small). Like any Meier sculpts I do, I provide myself with an extra challenge. I am going to have to either dig down deep, or reach to the stars to paint it where I am happy, so I go all out. This one is no exception. I was really keeping myself to control, color wheel mixing, and having a vision besides the show off work at DSM. I wanted something different. I went with a bit of simplicity, and I placed him on a rocky terrain (another challenge to myself). The s
  21. Here is my Rabbit Ranger from Dark Sword that I am currently working on. He is more done than not, but a lot of work to do still--not to mention the base I have planned.
  22. Another quite challenging Mini. I seem to be wrestling with these characters more than I would normally. I have the suspicion that I am doing rather more difficult mini's, and using a lot more ideas, and experimentation than I have since starting this incredible hobby. I was originally going to use the broad sword that also came with this sculpt, the sculpture demanded and rejected the sword every time I put it in place, I finally gave up, axe went on like a piece of cake ! I chose to mix all my most difficult colors to paint him up. Robinh will be very happy with one color choice..LOL.
  23. This has been an extremely delightful miniature to paint. I created a WIP (link below) since I decided to break with my standard way of doing things. I made mistakes along the way, and learned from them. I simplified this miniature in line with the sculpting that Tom did. I went for the "feel" of the actions, and didn't try to "pretty it up". I like the power this mini protrudes. So here is The Ancient Wizard. I've included a photo with a quarter to give an idea about scale. As usual, comments and critiques are valued. Here is the Link to the WIP if you are interested in seeing wh
  24. It's hard to get a good picture of this guy, what with this protruding arms.
  25. Ever since I saw this mini I have wanted to paint it. I was given it as a gift. I hope that the giver has noticed the hours of pleasure I have enjoyed bringing this figure to life. Tough, and challenging, and yet SOO rewarding. The image of a dragon always appears in my mind associated with lava, smoke and treasure. So I decided to challenge myself (like the figure isn't enough), to create a lava base. Your comments and criticism are always welcomed, and sought after. Please leave me a comment ! So here is my interpretation of the Dragonkin Rogue. I also created a WIP while I wa
