  1. Inarah

    Gwernydd

    I started this figure in 2009 and got frustrated with it. The colors just weren't working. I set it aside and came back to it occasionally with different colors. Finally got something I'm happy with. She has the tiniest freaking eyes I've ever worked with. I'm glad I did not ruin the face repainting it so many times.

    Random Pewter WIP

    After spending a lot of time working on speed paint tabletop minis, I decided to switch it up and try to do as good of a paint job as i can on a few of my pewter minis. I selected: 03253 sabertooth cat Andowyn Thrushmoor, Bonehenge Iconic from RCon 2016Crimson Herald, Disciple of C'thun from RCon 2016 Dodo from Bombshell Miniatures Ram from Bombshell miniatures (no picture yet) 14080: Guardian Angel, Crusaders Solo enjoy the poor cell phone pictures of the three i have pictures of
  3. Hi, While digging through my pile of Bones, I got inspired by the Warg model (by Jason Wiebe) and decided to integrate this as part of my "in-progress" Forces of Nature Army for Kings of War. I chose to make the Warg as a "wild companion" for my druid. The Warg was almost entirely painted using washes and dry-brush (letting the wonderful sculpt do all the hard work). The druid is a metal mini from Mantic. While still being technically a 28mm mini, it is still a lot smaller than Reaper's heroic scale. I went a bit crazy on on the OSL, but this was a poor attempt at hiding/distracting the very sloppy paint job on her face... But it turns out that the OSL kinda fit with my Earth Elemental in this army too. The druid and its wild companion: With the elemental:
  4. Miniature: 89027 Lini, Iconic Gnome Druid One of my cast of characters in Pathfinder was a Gnome Druid bleachling. Tika Mrae Adajiir (d'Saong). Trying to convert the WAR art from the icon to what I was was very challenging and tedious to do (and I never finished it in the Shop of Photos). Upon discovering Reaper, and wanting to begin painting other things besides my bride's zombies (she loves all things zombie, but especially co-op tabletop ones). In my haste and limited budget, I threw the miniature into the basket along with the fighter I am going to be painting up for Haldir's campaign down below in The Playing. I also only got Brown Liner. Well.. the leather parts will be easier? lol I tried mixing the following for the initial skintone, but it was too light: 09093 Golden Highlight (Reaper) 70.918 Ivory (VMC) I then repainted the skin with just the 09093 Golden Highlight. This is after the second coat: I did not take a photo of the sequences of her hair. Currently it appears very bright, but it is going to be worse... and if nothing else, it will be an experiment in what to not do... Her hair will be the following: 70.918 Ivory (VMC) 70.820 OffWhite (VMC) 70.951 White (VMC) - A very few select highlights The current photo is several coats of Ivory only.
  5. I bought some of the bones mouslings for my wife to paint. Well she never got around to it and I needed a druid/animal mage who was going to animate a treant in our game so I slapped some paint of this little guy. Now I'm really looking forward to the bee keeper one. I also have the rogue and assassin set too. I stole the shooting star robe idea from someone who was doing an eye painting tutorial on youtube. Mine comes no where near his though.

    Dark Sword Female Mage

    Ok, this one is all Ub3r's fault. During a Facebook conversation he talked me into attending and entering the Southern California Area Historical Miniature Show last month. I had just received an order from Dark Sword which contained this mini and I had to paint her. I pictured her coming up to a ravine in a forest that was not easily crossed with a creek or river running through it. Ub3r suggest a broken bridge and since I had already been thinking of doing an intact bridge, I went with it. So she was painted up and entered. I entered three pieces into their Advanced Painters, Fantasy category: this one; Albert from Hasslefree; and my Dark Sword Assassin from last September. As this was an open/medal competition, she was chosen as the piece judged and got me a Silver Medal, both of which means that my skills have improved since last year. Without further ado: ]
  7. Here is a completed Xanthia Skyclad, from Hasslefree Miniatures. She's standing on a base from Micro Arts Studios (in their forest collection, the wround 30mm group). Photos linked for nudity. Xanthia front Xanthia profile Xanthia back Xanthia quarter profile There is also a basing thread and a WIP thread. I gave her two small tattoos -- a triskelion on the right shoulder, and a band around her right ankle. Those I just drew on using a .005 Micron pen with archival blue ink, on the base coat, and then covered them over with multiple very thin layers of flesh tones. This is the first time I've attempted a tattoo, and I'm generally pleased, though they came out perhaps a tad understated. Also they didn't photograph very well, I'm afraid. As is often the case, the mini is nicer in hand than on screen. This is a birthday gift for a player in my group, who came up with a druid so devoted to nature that she refuses to wear clothing. The player's birthday isn't till June, but once I got started, I just wanted to get the figure done.
  8. Alright, first off this is all Ub3r's fault. We were discussing competitions, mainly a show that is local to me held by the Southern California Area Historical Miniature Society (SCAHMS). He was able convince me to go and while I can bring some of my older pieces, I wanted to do a piece specifically for the show. So my mind jumped immediately to the Elmore Female Mage/Druid that I just got in from Dark Sword and doing a forest style base. So, on to the miniature. I am not sure why, but I locked into painting her skirt a purplish red with a pink top. It took me a while to decide on the cape color but playing with the color wheel on my iPad got me to dark green. The colors in this mock up are a little off but it gives you the general idea. Here is the primed figure and the mock-up, the mock-up was done over the painted example from the web store so ignore the underlying freehand on the skirt. The design on the cape is a test for my freehand idea. And to the base. I wanted to do a forest base to test out some basing material I just got but I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do. So I went through Massive Voodoo's tutorials, hoping that something would spark an idea and it did. Their basing with cork tutorial made me think of the ravines/crevices in forests that have a river/creek running between pillars of rock. So I took that idea and ran with it. The first picture is the rough positioning, the second and third are where it stands now with some thin "trees", more cork, and sand added. There will be a broken wood rope bridge opposite of her and water at the bottom. Any input would be appreciated.
  9. Here's the super quick speed paint I did for my D&D buddy tonight, about 3 hours start to finish. For the purposes of our D&D game, this is Belatos the Aasimar Druid. Figure: Tolan, Male Druid - Reaper SKU #02692 Sculptor: Sandra Garrity C&C welcomed and appreciated! Thanks for looking

    Stonehaven Elves

    So, just got the bases finished up on my Stonehaven elves. Out of the five I've been working on, got four of them done and here they are! I'm in a pretty good mood because even though the initial photographed seemingly turned out yellowish and odd, I was able to just hit the Color button on the editing function and they cleared up to very close to their actual photos. I've been painting Ral Partha figures forever and a day, and this was the first time in a while I've moved over to a different brand, and I really enjoyed painting these figures. One of the nice things about these were the size. I'm not going to lie, bigger is easier. I've got another elf I'm working on, still in the WIP, and once I get him done, I'll go back to painting more Partha stuff. But in the meantime, enjoy!
  11. Hello, I used to paint Games Workshop miniatures when I was a kid, but was put off for many years by the price. Having found out about Reaper recently I decided to get back into it. I picked up the Learn to Paint Kit, a few extra Reaper miniatures and some extra paints/brushes. The valkyrie I have attached was my first attempt after a long break, and now I am getting onto the mouslings. I am having some difficulties though. I would love to hear any feedback on these difficulties I list or any other criticism or advice. With the valkyrie there are some parts I am quite happy with. Her right eye was never great, and has got messed up a bit somehow (I am dreading fixing it, maybe I should get some greenstuff and fashion an eyepatch?). Also her face has a kind of chalky look to it that I don't know how to avoid. I didn't have any gold paint, so I tried to do her armor as leather with metal features. On the chest that seems to have gone quite badly. For the hair I think it could do with more "depth" but I am having trouble working out how to achieve that. Her base I am actually quite happy with (in contrast to the other miniatures). As cliched as it is, I was going for an "evil albino" look with the mousling assassin. Having looked again at the stock photo in the store I may try to put some of the caucasian flesh colour I have on his nose. I had tried mixing up a pink before but it looked way too "valentines day". His eyes are also looking pretty flat, and I'm also having some trouble making his fur look "furry". The bases on these mouslings (and some other miniatures I have) have been a real challenge to get looking right. Recently I have been trying basecoating with shadowed stone, washing with brown liner, and highlighting with leather brown, but whatever I do I can't get it where I'm happy with it. I decided to do the druid more as a wizard (I bought a trio of reds for a dragon I am holding off on painting so I want to use those). I have had issues painting the orb in his staff (I want it to have some sort of blue mystical look). I was having problems with the colour of the staff or the orb flowing into the crevice between them and looking bad, so I did a sort of outline with diluted brown liner and now plan to paint the orb "up to" the edge without the paint flowing into it. I am happy with his eyes, but his fur is also a struggle. I was going for "black mouse" though I then switched to "dark grey mouse" so I could try to get some shading in. The thief and beekeeper I am really just basecoating for now (I include them here so I can follow up with them later). I had some trouble with the pale saffron yellow being weird, but I think it just required far more shaking than I was giving it. Thank you for reading.

    Adventuring party!

    The adventuring party from my Pathfinder campaign: Reaper 14318: Cleric of Ishnar Reaper 02669: Oberon Half-Orc Reaper 89020: Harsk, Iconic Dwarf Ranger Reaper 77049: Arthrand Nightblade, Elf Ranger
  13. And finally, my thirtheenth and last finished mini of November 2015, which is the Treespeaker (SKU 112004) from DGS games, modified to hold the Bones dragon familiar from Familiar Pack 77176 in her hand. The casting did not seem to be very good on this particular mini, the details seemed soft and almost non existant (I have not seen this to be the case with other DGS minis), and her face did not turn out that great. I tried a lot of different color schemes until I finally just decided to finish her.
  14. I have a three year old little girl (she'll soon be four) and she has a good imagination. Naturally, we'd like to steer this in the right direction, so I've been GMing once a week with my family. Right now it is just a homebrew system that we're keeping quite simple. We'll be moving up as we go. Our first hero is Drella. Her character class is definitely Princess, and while her normal tactic is to use either Scorching Ray or Magic Missile, she also tends to pull a sword out of hammer space when things get rough. And this is Ella, my wife's spellcaster. She's very helpful on adventures Last is Prince McGuffin. He mostly gets kidnapped by ogres, sorcerers, dragons and such. Our heroes have noted his aptitude for being captured, and have started keeping him from going out by himself for any reason. Last time our heroes sallied forth, they started out by locking him in a closet until they come back. I expected this campaign to mostly feel standard (we kill the monsters, save the prince and everyone is happy). But then my little girl realized that some of the monsters can talk- and if they can talk, they can be talked into doing things for them. My favorite was when they convinced an ogre that the dragon would be tastier than eating them, so he came along (all the time threatening to become too bored or hungry and start eating the party). Here are the three of them together.
  15. So this is the new Bones II Kickstarter frogman shaman, 92683, sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I love this figure. It has lots of delightful details. Its staff alone is a treasure chest of goodies: a narwhal tusk wrapped with seashells and a starfish, with a little puffer fish hanging off the top. The shaman is also wearing a frog skull which is available in the Boneyard as a separate piece. The teeth, however, are silly. Frogs don't have them. I don't think this one could close its mouth properly on those. Perhaps they are false teeth worn for battle. I painted the shaman and the two warriors that go with it like a common leopard frog, the sort I used to catch as a kid. WIP thread here.
  16. This is one of six Mouslings from the Bones II Kickstarter that I have painted up as characters. This is a druid with an orb on a staff and the tiniest chibi frog imaginable on top. WIP thread here. The other Mouslings: Thief, Beekeeper, Assassin, Ranger (with Bow), Archer (Robin Hood)
  17. So I'm painting up some of the Bones II Mouslings to be used as ship's crew and NPCs in a fairly weird game. These aren't all of them. There's also a mouse king and queen (with pointy hat with veil), a samurai, and a classic wizard, all nice but not quite for my purposes. To be honest, I have mixed feelings about the buxom little "girl" mice. I prefer to think of all Mouslings as something you'd have to be a mouse to tell the difference, like in real life. But gosh, they are cute. At the moment I am referencing real mice for coloring. One Mousling is going to be black, one white, and four a kind of mousy brown. There will probably be some variation on this. Here the six I'm doing are, cleaned up and washed with Reaper's Brown Liner, and a bit of paint added to the white mouse. Here the basic colors of the fur are blocked in and I've painted their tails and ears pink. Black mice seem to have a slightly darker pink, but on the whole all mice seem to have delicate pink tails and ears. Real mice have tiny, pink, handlike feet, while the Mouslings have more teddybear-like paws. I am compromising by painting their fingers and toes pink.
  18. So my mass upload of current projects continues. I have to admit, I don't really like this figure (for painting), but it was chosen by a player in my Pathfinder group to represent his druid. I think the hawk turned out well, but I need to detail his medallion and wand as well as clean up and highlight his under clothes. front: back:

    More Ultrasquid's Undead Troops

    Hi all! I'm new to this forum, but not to fantasy miniature painting. I don't really know what to say right now so I'll let a couple pieces of my wok speak for themselves: 77002: Orc Archers (Bones) 02566: Fiona, Female Druid

    03294: Tobias Winterthorn, Druid

    I drew Sirithiliel as my exchange partner (and by coincidence, I was her partner as well). She wanted a druid or a monk, and I had been wanting to paint Tobias here for a while. He's got a very dynamic pose, and actually is kind of out-of-place among other Reaper minis, IMO. The sculpt is interesting and quite cool, but also kind of weird after working with it for a while - how did his cloak get out in front of him? where's the other half of his bow? what's that green thing next to the quiver? I think the sculptor might be the guy behind Tin Man Miniatures - same name, at least. I felt like playing around with my Dark Elf skin triad, but it'd be a stretch to paint him as a drow, so instead I am calling him a "night elf." I also knew there was going to be a lot of brown and green on him, so I wanted something that would stand out a bit more than normal the normal caucasian/blonde elf combo. Plus, I keep asking people to do non-caucasian skin-tones, so I should do so as well. I'm pretty happy with the greens, but less so with the browns - the browns were done during "the slog." The greens have fluorescent green mixed into the highlights, so they really look like they're glowing.
  21. I'm working on a bunch of Bones and Bones II figures with an aquatic theme. Among them are these three frog creatures, two warriors and a shaman or druid who is itself wearing a frog skull as a helmet. Pretty neat, actually. Anyhow, here they are primed with Reaper's Brown Liner (Buglips' great discovery). They are pretty sizable, so I decided to paint them as leopard frogs rather than poison dart tree frogs. Leopard frogs were the frogs where I grew up, and I have a fondness for them. A screen grab of reference pix: To begin with, I mixed a bright poison green and painted their heads, backs, and limbs with it -- basically everything that isn't going to be the soft white underbelly.

    77210: Sarah the Seeress

    Ok finally got the Spring Exchange mini completed. It has no base because Buckyballs requested it be non-based as he will just clear base it anyway for gaming. I am terrible at painting ladies and this one had a lot of fiddly bits. I didn't do a great job but for a tabletop gaming piece I think it will do the trick. I just hope my partner likes it. Better pics taken with an actual camera! Original pics from the cell phone using the light box.

    Imbrian Arts Troll Druid

    Finally feeling confident about putting this together properly so I thought I'd get started. Skin base coat is Green Black, will be using Brown Liner on the armor..

    Hawkman and Possum Druid

    Well, I ended up buying a few pewter miniatures to test paints on before painting up a metal tree for a particular Bones dragon, just to make sure I don't accidentally screw it up. So here are my first two metal minis and I think they turned out well. This is the Hawkman, friend of mine suggested that I should paint him up like a raven and thought "Oh hey, that's a cool idea" then half way through I was like "WHY DO I KEEP FORGETTING HOW HARD BLACKS ARE TO PAINT". Though it was a learning experience that helped me practice a few things. I even added a tiny bit of silver to a separate plot of black paint for the beak so I could get that shiny look on it. Also getting the hang of painting capes and getting the nice lighting effect on them with lightly thinned down paints. This was the Opposum Druid that I had to get after seeing her. She normally has three kids, I might paint up the other two but for now I prefer her like this with her one kid swinging about on that staff. I based the colors off of a possum character off of a webcomic because I liked the comic and I'm not terribly creative when coming up with color schemes.

    02831: Olivia, Halfling

    Here she is, the last of the hobbits (and gnomes) I started during the January Bones Beauty Pageant. Olivia, "halfling" could maybe be a druid, or a wizard. At any rate, she a non-thief hobbit female. Many times when I start one of these things I think, "Oh, I should try painting in subdued colors and earth tones." Hah. So anyway, here's the world's least camouflaged hobbit druid. Or most ivy-loving wizard. Or something. I love that she has a loaf of bread in her sling of scrolls and books.
