  1. Hey all! Finished up the Behir, subject to fate, and wanted to show him off! (WIP here) And some close ups of his face: C&C Welcome! George Edited because I am taking some new pics with a real camera, under some good lighting... Close ups Much easier to see the real colors with the Ottlights and a good camera! George
  2. I've been struggling for a good recipe. Using Reaper MSP paints and or Scale 75. What would make a good recipe for realistic desert terrain? And I do mean the Sahara or Egyptian kind of desert. I want to make some nice Egyptian themed undead, but my recipes are either too brown or too yellow and don't come off as real yet. So any thoughts?
  3. 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.
  4. So I made this out of Crayola Air-Dry clay using the usual methods. The stony texture was applied with a rock. Because fractals. I'm fairly happy with this recipe for sandstone - raw umber basecoat, beige drybrush, orangey-brown (Folkart "Moccasin brown") glaze. I'd like to do a taller one, so that the cave troll isn't looking over the top like Kilroy. Giant Tiger Beetles. Because entomology is the realm of monsters. Cicindela pulchra pulchra (the Beautiful Tiger Beetle) for the color scheme.
  5. I re-painted this wonderfully sculpted Citadel old school mini from my collection recently. As a kid back in the day, when I first painted this figure, I learned a very important painting lesson - never use oil paints! It never really dried properly & was tacky for months, maybe even years!
  6. So. I tried painting some minis without WIPs and found myself having a hard time keeping track of what and how much I had done. So I'm back, although these may be sporadic and really slow to update. We'll see. Anyhow, after painting a lot of tiny figures for the January Bones Beauty Pageant, I decided to move in the opposite direction and tackle some of the big figures from Bones I to clear out room for Bones II. So I am painting dragons. Five of them, if you count the Frost Wyrm. Each one gets its own thread, though, since I don't know how I'm going to progress through them. I didn't know the names of the dragons when I decided what colors to make them. Since I'm painting five, to keep up interest I'm using a slightly different approach to each one. This one, at least for the moment, I am imagining as something warm and desert-like, gold with red undertones. When I looked at it I thought of brass or gold dragons, although I don't know if I'm going to actually attempt metallics on it. As you might have gathered, I improvise a lot when I am painting. If I were a writer I would be what they call a pantser. Anyhow, to make sure I didn't get all those unglued wings mixed up, the first painting session I made sure to put a wash on each dragon and its wings of a major color element I had planned for it. So after I primed everything with Reaper's Brown Liner, this one got a terracotta red wash of pure thinned-down Iron Oxide Red. The other dragons I'm painting concurrently are Deathsleet, Ebonwrath, the Shadow Dragon, and the Frost Wyrm.
  7. Took a lot more time than I thought he would, but he was fun to paint. I really love painting Reaper's monsters. Somehow I ended up with a whole different style than my previous scorpion, but even if it doesn't match, I think it came out OK. My resolution is to paint at least what I have put together on my desk before I purchase anymore minis. This takes care of mini #4, just a handful more to go! Hope you enjoy.
  8. This is the (9th) completed vignette as listed on my (WIP) forum of fantasy vignette projects posted on Oct. 2, 2013; that I wanted to complete in Oct-Nov 2013. VIGNETTE TITLE...DESERT PROSPECTOR (EUREKA)... FIGURE...REAPER # 50119 (Crazy Pete the Prospector)... NOTE...This may bring an end to my projected vignette projects as listed on the above (WIP)...I do not have the figures I need for the other named/titled vignettes and without the figures...I can't work on the bases (since I don't know when and which figures will arrive first). I hope that you like this little desert vignette.,, Catdancer...
  9. MINIATURE...Hand from the grave...scratch built...all items are from my parts box...the cacti is real tiny cacti from the desert. PROTOTYPE...The request for this very unusual and weird piece came from a writer/artist; who wanted me to do a desert piece of a hanged cowboy coming back from the grave in skeleton form...with the hand reaching up for the hangman's noose. He wanted to do some comic type drawings and needed a visual reference to work by. This is the prototype I built and sent him...he really liked it...used it for his work...and I was nicely compensated. In my years...I have had some off-the-wall requests.
  10. This is another one of my older fantasy figures that I just finished. I tried to keep the look of both the figure and the base very bland, barren & bleached. I executed the skin color of the mummy (the way I would envision it)...a grayish rotting green flesh with corpse maggots in the eye & mouth (but executed in a dull dark aged feel, look and manner)...did the same with the cloth wrap...I hope that you feel I succeeded in my attempt. FIGURE...Grenadier (Mummy Lord) # 512...circa 1986...
