  1. I think if you just look at this Miniature, you will know I was having a fantastic time. This provided lots of experience in cleaning (nasty mold line filing), and ran me through the gauntlet of any skills I have. I used some freehand painting on shield; and played with black and white photos working the shadows. Highlighting was a hoot ! The opportunity to take this figure in a thousand different directions is amazing. Needless to say, I have totally enjoyed this Miniature. I hope the rest that I have to do prove to be as entertaining. As always, your comments and critiques are a
  2. I'm doing something a little different. Rather than do a WIP, I'm kinda doing an "Okay this is what I am up to". I'll post things to this "WIP" as I move along. Gets me away from the "do some work, take photos, edit photos, crop photos, post photos syndrome. I need to focus on just painting for a bit. So, here is the mini almost all base painted. I'm planning on some freehand on that shield. He's also painted in old bronze for the armor.
  3. This has been a total blast to paint. Besides being very whimsical, it is a challenging piece of great sculpting. You can chase yourself around quite a bit on this one. The biggest challenge is the armor, and painting all the details of it. This will exercise your brush control ! When it came to basing him, I did all sorts of things with cork, and wood, and finally I decided that Less IS more in this case. I want to draw emphasis to the figure, not take away from it. So I have used a simple Tung Oil stained base. As always, your comments and criticism are welcomed and sought afte
  4. This was a bonus mini for OneBoot for the Summer Exchange. Painting this little guy was fun.
  5. My first mini from the recent DSM critters kickstarter. fascinating levels of detail. It was fun because I wanted to try some fur patterns and the kitties seemed to be the easiest to work with. I do like the detail built into these minis, even the sconce has a little pile of coals at the bottom of the flame. I probably didn't do the mini Justice in paint level but it was fun to paint. The only gripe I have with these minis is the bases. They are integral to the mini and difficult to remove if you want to do any additional basing. I tried to bury this one and attempted to simulated a
  6. Knight of the Flowers has been quite the trip ! I don't think I have ever used a 0000 brush as much as I have on all the little bits on here. Nor has so many details been thrown at me at one time. This is my first free hand piece of work. TWO of them. Lining on cloak, and painting the flower on the shield. I'm sure I will get better at it. I chose this wonderful sculpt because of its challenge, and for its beauty. I hope I did it some justice. I tried to make it mine, hopefully I managed to impart my vision of it. So here are some photos of Ser Loras Tyrell. Comments a
  7. After thirteen (13) RBG miniatures from Tre Manor, I thought I could use a break. So I opted to start a miniature that will FORCE me to really concentrate on my brush control. Ser Loras Tyrell, Knight of the Flowers, is ONE TOUGH painting experience. Its carved by my favorite T. Meirer, and the armor, and cloak back look like a nightmare to paint. So I selected it. Nothing tempted, nothing learned ! Actually scares the heck out of me; but so did all his other sculpts I have painted ! I won't be posting as many photos as I have been prior to this. I intend to take my time, and
  8. I thought I'd post one of my RCon entry. Here is Darksword Miniature's Female Mage with a staff. Thanks for any C&C you feel like giving. For those of you attending RCon I hope to see you there.
  9. So this is a combo post. I painted these two minis (which of course I now see things I could touch up... stupid pictures), but their diorama is a WIP called Hide and Seek :). I'm working on the WIP on my blog, won't bore y'all with that. It should be up a little later if anyone is interested. :) So, these guys were a lot of fun! Dark sword minis are so much smaller!!!! It's a little ridiculous. Hopefully, I will get this done in time for reapercon, then I can have a DSM diorama and a Reaper one. We'll see what happens. Well, enjoy, and C&C always welcome. :)
  10. Finished the first of the many Dark Sword Miniatures that arrived... Am I completely happy with her, No, but enough to send her on her way to a new home. I did repaints on some areas a few too many times, but overall I like how the wings & hair turned out, and the blues of the dress was good practice in blending (that doesn't show up so much in photos). C&C welcome -Thanks for looking.
  11. Right. I think I will call her done! Or abandoned... At any rate, here is Dark Sword Miniatures Green Witch, sculpted by the awesome Dennis Mize. My idea was to create something that evoke growth and life. I wanted to do it almost entirely in a monochrome green. And I wanted to sculpt. So, I started with the basic form of a hand with curled fingers, sculpted the hand to look like animals and faces sleeping in the stone and then added vines and flowers. I also made some little paper butterflies and painted them. Last I added some etched brass foliage for the tree leaves and a few fer
  12. Fat King Robert Baratheon from Dark Sword Miniatures. I'm really pleased with how he turned out. It's actually the mini I'm most pleased with in quite a while.
  13. Before I say anything about the Miniature; I wanted to say thank you to Ub3r_N3rd, robinh, and Dontfear for their suggestions, help, advice, and that they always push me to expand, and try new things. This Miniature is incredible for its detail, and the myriad of ways you can go about painting it. I have had an absolute blast doing it, and I am sure I could have added a few more touches to it, to enhance it further. Blending all those colors, and making the color choices was a hoot. The leaves on the bottom are Birch tree seeds. Go for this one, and try not to giggle as much as
  14. I was given the Dark Sword Frog Wizard as a Christmas Gift. I don't want the giver of the gift to think I was unhappy with their choice; (must always leave open channels for future Mini's) !!! I really like the challenge of this one, and the familiars around his feet, and the bat are hysterical ! So I am doing another one of those froggies that I dearly love. I wonder if he is holding the "Holy Hand Grenade Of Antioch" ??? I have him primed now.
  15. I completed this Mini Yesterday. If you want a fantastic challenge go for this one. The pose is so dynamic, and the possibilities are myriad. I added a new set of brushes to this mix; and was shocked by the difference in upgrading to a higher quality brush changed my painting. I know that many folks feel that an excellent base should be designed for each mini. Since it is winter; and most DSM mini's come with a base sculpt, I am just going to go with what they have done for right now. Once I can use my new jewelers saw outside, I'll learn how to removed that stuff, and peg t
  16. I've been seeing this in my box of goodies for a very long time. I avoided painting it after several other members did theirs. My turn ! I'm heading towards the greens for the cloak, and will wing it for the other components. Love the dynamics of this Sculpt. Was a BEAR to glue together though! He has been washed, and primed.
  17. I finished off the female thief I started work on at the January NEMPA meeting. Less than one month to get a miniature done! The original plan was to use her as my character in a one-shot that was intended to be today, but it got snowed out. She didn’t come out quite how I imagined the character so I decided to switch miniatures anyway. Some notes on colors: Highland Moss, -Jungle Moss, +Lemon Yellow for the blouse Rattlesnake Leather, -Umbral Umber, +Tanned Leather for the pants Ruddy Leather, -Umbral Umber, +Oiled leather for the boots Blond Triad for the hair Tanned Skin, -very
  18. Alice; he's going to paint another Frog ! Yep, I was given the Frog Prince as a Christmas Present, and was reminded that I haven't painted it yet. I am working on removing mold lines on several other miniatures (wait till the full moon; and we all can howl together about "moooooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuulllllllllllldddddddddddddddddd Liiiiinnnnnneesssss"). So here is the Dark Sword Frog Prince, de-mold-lined and washed. Needs to be primed at this stage.
  19. Needless to say; if you followed this in the WIP forum. I have had an incredible blast at doing this. The Sculpt is extremely well carved, details are very fine, and the miniature is challenging, and very enjoyable to paint. You can go color crazy painting this one if you wish. The challenge at the end was to create a base for him. I decided to go with what the sculptor had provided me, and mod it. I didn't realize I would be spending hours picking up each Birch seed "leaf" and attaching it to the base.. Brown, oh that has a touch of yellow, Green, burnt brown... Yes it was fun !
  20. This is an incredible amount of fun to paint. The details on this miniature are a sheer joy to encounter. I got playful with this one, it called for something to set it off. I took my time, and got some wonderfu suggestions along the way. So this piece can be quite the challenge for your brush control ! Trying to push the color scale up a bit. I highly recommend painting the Frog King, I think I spent a major amount of time just laughing as I got into it. It reminds me of Jackie Gleason actually. Here is the Frog King. C&C, as always, is appreciated.
  21. This has been one of the Great Fun Projects to paint. Since I took a break from Painting the Arthurian pieces by Tom Meier, I discovered that he had sculpted these larger 28mm pieces. The Frog Queen is a lot of challenge, and you can really push yourself as far as you (and your funny bone) can stand. I hope you appreciate my efforts on this Miniature. C/C is always welcome ! Here is my interpretation of the Queen of the Froggies !
  22. Here's (yet another) side project, as I (slowly) work on my Galleon: As always, C&C welcome!
  23. This is a diorama I created. Last year, I got to talk to Jeff Grace (he's responsible for a lot of great minis from Dark Sword, Privateer Press, Reaper and others). We talked a little bit about how easy it would be to make some of his Dark Sword minis into Star Wars characters, and how cool it would be if someone made a diorama of a dueling Jedi and Sith and entered it into the painting competition. Naturally, I agreed that such a thing should happen. I'm not totally sure that he meant it as a challenge. I think sometimes people get surprised when I run away with an idea like this.
  24. This mini I painted for Gencon's Masterclass competition. Overall, I was rather pleased with how he turned out, but I honestly had a hard time placing him in the lineup when I saw all of those pretty minis show up (man, there were a lot of really nice ones this year- especially from Dark Sword). In the end, he placed Second in single miniatures- to Marke Reimer's (holy crap it was amazing) steampunk medusa. I was pretty happy about that. I've also posted him onto Coolminiornot for anyone who cares to vote.
  25. Dark Sword Miniatures have on their website and their Facebook something interesting: Along with this tid bit: Judging from the comments they had test castings at ReaperCon? Looking forward to seeing where this one goes. *edit* Kickstarter is live now: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/823962857/dark-sword-miniatures-special-edition-elmore-drago
