    Anime Miniatures by M&K Adventures

    Hello Everyone - We are launching our Kickstarter tonight, April 20, 2015. We hope you all can check it out! It will feature Misaki the Fire Girl, and more minatures will be unlocked along the way. Misaki turned out to be absolutely beautiful, and you can check out close up pics of her on our website. http://www.mkadventures.com/ Thanks for everyone's support! We have been working hard on this, and are ready with Production Metals in hand. Yes, the pictures of the painted Misaki on our website are from the Production Molds... Thanks!

    Another set of minis painted as a learning session for the girlfriend. Basing isn't done.:
  4. I recently posted a couple new projects and here is yet one more! As you can probably tell, I jump around a lot. When I get stuck on a figure instead of banging my head into the wall, I prefer to take a break and work on something else. I will get back to those other ones, don't worry! But, for now, here's what I'm spending my time on. This is a 54mm figure from Andrea's Warlord Saga line. It's an interesting figure, although I haven't seen many other people paint it. The figure is called Sorondil, Dragon Hunter. However, over the past day or so I've decided to change his setting to a pseudo-prehistoric one, like Marvel's Savage Lands. So I guess that makes my version, Sorondil, Dinosaur Hunter. =) I began on the face and skin. I switched up the shadows a little bit. Normally I use RMS Mahogany Brown and Chestnut Brown, both mixed with 10-20% Rosy Shadow for my skin shadows. This time around, I added an extra 25-33% Imperial Purple to those mixes. It's fantasy, so I can play around a bit more, and I plan to use a lot of red and purple throughout the figure. From there I went into my usual Rosy Shadow, then Fair Skin, and finally Fair Highlight. After all that I used some red and purple glazes to add a bit more color here and there. The scales were Burgundy Wine, Violet Red, Fire Red, and a touch of Fair Skin mixed in for the top highlights. The darker scales were black, Dark Elf Shadow, Dark Elf Skin, Dark Elf Highlight, and again a touch of Fair Skin for the top highlights. He's obviously missing some parts. I left off the quiver and his left arm (holding the bow), so I would have easier access to the details on his clothing. His right arm isn't really in the way, but he's holding a long spear with a thin shaft and a huge stone head. It looks very breakable and I'm sure clumsy ol me would snap it in half very quickly while trying to paint the figure. So that will be one of the last pieces I attach just for the sake of safety. Over the weekend a friend at one of the local painting groups in LA was showing me a kit of 1/35 scale dinosaurs from Tamiya. The detailing on them was nice and the size was right for the figure, so I ordered a box and will hopefully be able to use them on the base. I'm excited to try them out.
  5. OK well it's time to try this again. Our last Kickstarter did not go the way we wanted it to, and we listened to out backers on why it did not work. We are now back at it again trying to get this off the gorund. This is a dream of ours and we are not going to stop till we get this thing on the gorund becasue we feel we have somethign very special here. So I want to reintroduce you to our Kickstarter MidKnight Heroes Season 0 Reboot! What is Reboot!? Reboot is where we went back to the drawing board and redesigned our idea. We changed for a set idea to a per miniature idea with our primary miniature Leonide as our main miniature. We added more value to you pledges and even redesigned two of our characters the was not very popular, Oda and Hanna. Our Funding level is much smaller, $2000 (Bare bones) that our last Kickstarter and we now offer free shipping to all US backers. Stop by and take a look and hep make our drream a reality! Our Miniatures will be sculpted by Robby Crawforth and Fancagne Didier and will be cast in metal. Our current Stretch goals: go to our website at www.midknighthereos.com to see all our stretch goals. Natakue and the MidKnight Hereos Team. "Thank you for supporting us!"
  6. Orcs! Humans. They come. They breed. They rape the land. Steal its magic. The glaciers are moving. The world is growing colder. The sun is growing dim. They don't see it. But we do. As do the rest of the Elder Races. The Naiads, deep in the water. The Centaurs deep in their forests. The Trolls, in their caves. The Giants, high in their mountains. The Kobolds of the deserts, and the Goblins of the swamps. The Dwarves and Elves are retreating, leaving this world. We cannot, for we have no powerful magics. We are Orcs! We will stand and we will fight, when no others will. Others will come, as long as we are at the forefront. They must, for if this world perishes, we all perish. For many generations, our tribe has been kept as a standing army by a half-Naiad sorceress. She is vile, but we serve her because she works to save the world from the humans. We are branded as slaves, but she cannot hold us, should we choose to leave. We are Orcs! Her plans are nearing completion, and we are her most formidable warband. We strike at the heart of a human settlement tonight to obtain an artifact. She tells us it looks like a star with three points, and that she must have it. It is vital to her success. We must succeed, our lives, our kin, our world, everything we hold dear is at stake. We will succeed, for we are Orcs! None can stand in our way! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Orcs! is a fantasy campaign using the Guardians of Order BESM: The Slayers d20 mechanics. It is intended for up to 10 players at a time, and if there are more, they will wait in the queue. The link (at the top) is to a folder in my Google Drive which contains all the pertinent information for the game. It is intended as a dramatic comdey, and can vary wildly from one extreme to the other. I will warn you in advance that I...borrow...liberally from Stan Nicholls Orcs: First Blood and Orcs: Bad Blood. They were, in fact, the sole sources of inspiration for the campaign. (So, if you've read them, no spoilers, please.) Yes, the campaign and the book start off the same, but where the campaign goes from there is entirely up to the players. The game will start once I have a minimum of 6 active players. I would prefer a full warband of 10, so spread the word. I will also be running this game live (once I get home), and may keep journals from both groups to share with each other at the end. Each character will need a voice color, and your full character history and character questionnaire will be public knowledge. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Active CharactersAuberon redambrosia fishnjeeps Spike Arc724 TGP Queued Characters Any questions may be asked openly here, or privately via PM.

    77306: Translucent Slimes (2)

    Eww, yuck. These guys would be terrible to encounter in a dungeon. The primary colors come from unthinned inks applied with a heavy hand so they start to pool. Highlights were painted with normal colors. I used yellow ink for the right-hand one, and a mix of blue and yellow for the left (I don't have green ink). The bottom side of each is painted white, which is why they are so brightly colored. Then as a final touch, hit with a heavy coat of Citadel 'ardcoat.

    Orcs! [d20]

    ORCS! The settlement of Unity lays quiet below you. Asleep. Unsuspecting. The humans who lay there hold a relic, and have no idea that it is the key to saving this world. Instead, the humans just keep moving south, away from the growing ice. They just keep raping the land for its magic, crowding out the Elder Races. That ends now. Your warband moves silently down the hill in the dark. Creeping up to the fence that these humans call a wall is no challenge. There's hardly a sentry to be seen. Even if there was, their torches only shed so much light, and the shadows are your allies. Up and over you go, into Unity. Your noses wrinkle at the stench. The sickly sweet smell of humans. The docile, domestic, weak smell of them disgusts you. It's nothing like the wild, strong, clean smells of an Orc camp. This is smell of an animal caught in a trap, knowing death is coming yet still fearing it. The sounds of animals catch your keen ears. Cows, sheep, pigs, chickens, dogs. All of them have had the wildness taken out of them. They sound diseased, sick with humanity. Most of the windows are dark, a few still have candles or lamps burning in them, but those are easily avoided. The road you want is dark, not even the moon touches it this night. These human settlements are all the same, the road is straight, with no obstacles. It leads right to the back of their church. These humans and their One God. It makes you vomit in your mouth a little just thinking about it. Silently, you open the shuttered window, and slide into the dark opening. One by one, the warband enters the wooden structure. It is dark, even to your eyes, but you can see the star. It's in a glass case on a wooden table...maybe an altar. Removing the glass case is as easy as it looks, and the star goes into a pouch. Out the way you came seems the easiest way. And so you go. Out through the opened window, into the darkened street. Into the waiting arms of a guard patrol. They stand, sneering at you with drawn blades. The cold steel reflects the light of their torches. They cautiously advance, eyes never leaving your hands. They'll kill you if they can.
  9. With my wharf packed away securely to avoid any harm during the hectic moving period...I grabbed an hour here and there and built/constructed this little fellow that I call " Herby "! It/he will be the last piece to go on a fantasy vignette/diorama that I have been working on for another site. The piece contains these separate pieces/parts (head, stalk, snake vine, 3 large leaves/top, 3 large leaves/bottom, crawling ivy, moss clump/top)...selected from my varied basic parts boxes and put together for some nice visual looks/impact. Any feedback and comments will be greatly appreciated as usual. Paul (Catdancer)
  10. These are the fantasy miniature figures (28mm) that will be the (10 player) group for an upcoming table top RPG adventure game titled " The Tears & Sorrows of Oblivion ". They are painted to my table top game play quality and sealed with (3) coats of high gloss for heavy game play usage. Characters are: Valina Trax (Daedra Assassin in human form)...Shadow Veil (Altmer Wardancer)...Jar Corbin (Imperial Duelist/Bounty Killer)...Sister Sinn (Imperial Battle Nun/Healer)...Jean Fable (Imperial Elf Ranger/Pathfinder)...Max Von Dane (Imperial Necromancer & skeleton friend blade)...Nina Darkness (Imperial Thief & Courtesan)...Enigma Dreamer (Imperial Summoner/Spell Binder)...Lido Von Wolf (Imperial Knight Templar) and Volgar (Nordic Venerable Dwarf Lord)! Paul (Catdancer)
  11. In the near future, I will again be starting a (10 player/character) RPG game...titled " The Tears and Sorrows of Oblivion ". I hope that this initial prologue will set the visual scene for you...in my actual games...I use/provide the players with pictures/photos to give them an idea/feel for the area that they are in...the enclosed photos are what is/are provided to the players ! The game itself will be played on a table top...but the whole adventure map (provided to the players) is a small (10 by 10 hex) game map = 100 hexes...each hex is (1) full adventure day. The adventure map contains the following areas; 1. (15) Dark green hexes = the dark forest with the sun light mostly blocked out...dark trees and strange silhouettes everywhere...there is a constant misty fog in the forest and a low fog hugs the ground...visibility is minimal at best (6" to 8")...there is a heavy smell of rotting vegetation that is constant. Movement is reduced to (4"). 2. (16) Light green hexes = wide open rolling meadows with knee high grasses and flowers...edged by thick trees on both sides...there is no cover available in the meadows...the group is in the wide open...Bright sunlight during the daylight hours. 3. (17) Dark brown hexes = these are the canyons...very steep sides...the canyons are littered with rocks and boulders of all sizes...it is grey overcast in the canyons at all times during the daytime hours. 4. (18) Yellow/gold hexes = this is the outback...very rough broken ground with washes/gullies...bright sunlight during the daytime hours with temperatures around 118 degrees...like walking through Death Valley in mid-summer. 5. (13) Pinkish floral hexes = these are enchanted lands that can cast spells upon the adventure group...clear skies and sunshine during the daytime hours. 6. (13) Dark grey hexes = these are the Mountains of Sorrow...very rugged and barren...heights reaching to the skies...extremely dangerous footing and climbing...clear skies and sunshine during the daylight hours...sub-freezing temperatures during the night. 7. (5) Water hexes = these offer safe camp sites for the adventure group (no creature attacks during the night). 8. (2) Cottage hexes = these 2 cottages offer the adventure group the ability to re-supply (items that they have used up during game play)...also offer food, rest and friendship to those in need. 9. (1) Castle in the Sky hex = this is the end objective of the adventure. I hope that I have been able to set the visual scene(s) of the varied areas of the game map for you to understand. ...to be continued... [/url]
  12. After many many years of being a (GM/DM) for RPG adventure groups (with some great groups and wonderful memories)...I retired as an active (DM) last November, thinking that it was time for younger brains and blood to tell the stories and weave the fantasies for avid fantasy players! Since my retirement...I have been besieged by former past players and the new friends they have made...to come out of retirement and conduct at least one more RPG adventure story and fantasy game! Well...I am back in the fold!...After our apartment move is completed and things are back to normal...I have agreed to the wishes of the players and will conduct another RPG adventure game. The game/story will be a horrific adventure that not many of the group may survive! They will leave the standard/common foes and enemies behind and face epic foes like giant monoliths (that use laser beam attacks) and giant stone guardians that can vanquish dragons with their lethal blades/swords in just a couple of attacks! To my great surprise...the group was not turned off by the above dire facts...in fact, they seemed to gain great enthusiasm with/at the idea of the great challenges that they will face and encounter...each player thinking that the others may/will die, but that they will survive! The game will be titled " The Tears & Sorrows of Oblivion "...It will be a campaign game with around (24 game sittings)...playing twice a month! The group is an " adults only " group (as were most of my RPG games of the past)...there will be (10) already accepted/established players who will be playing the following fantasy characters; 1. Valina Trax (female)...(Daedra Assassin in human form)... 2. Nina Darkness (female)...(Imperial Thief/Courtesan)... 3. Jar Corbin (male)...(Imperial Duelist/Bounty Killer)... 4. Sister Sinn (female)...(Imperial Battle Nun/Healer)... 5. Jean Fable (male)...(Imperial Elf Ranger/Pathfinder)... 6. Max Von Dane (male)...(Imperial Necromancer & Skeleton friend " Blade ")... 7. Shadow Veil (female)...(Altmer Wardancer)... 8. Enigma Dreamer (female)...(Imperial Summoner/Spell Binder)... 9. Lido Von Wolf (male)...(Imperial Knight Templar)... 10. Volgar (male)...(Nordic Venerable Dwarf Lord)... The gaming figures are done to table top game play quality and are sealed with (3) coats of hard gloss coat (for heavy game play usage)! The figures will be posted in the Show Off thread for your viewing! Paul (Catdancer)
  13. PROJECT...Fantasy vignette...titled (You Can't Get Me Gold)! This is a small fantasy vignette (6" x 6")...scratch built for another site and is my interpretation of the given title (Giant Flora & Fungi) containing a monster plant! Any and all comments and feedback will be greatly appreciated! Paul (Catdancer)

    Story ideas for a D&D game

    The title says all. Just wondering if anyone had anything interesting. I would post one of my own story ideas, but then I'll find out years later that it was plagarized and is being turned into a movie. It's happened to me before, I'm not being paranoid.
  16. PROJECTS FOR 2015...I don't paint anywhere as many miniature figures as 95% of you other members do...but I want to finish painting the above pictured miniatures in 2015...Pictured are; Photo 1...The vampire/monster hunting party of the town of Covasna, Transylvania. Photo 2...Two-headed ogre with female victim...will be done on a (KING KONG) type of rock face plateau setting. Photo 3...My (Bruise Brothers) ogre pair. Photo 4...Finish my Black Orc hunter/killer war band. Other projects... 1. Tavern front vignette with strumpet and gentleman. 2. French bordello balcony front vignette with girl in window. 3. Small bayou/glade diorama with the house/home of Marie Laveau. 4. Small interior section diorama of a scribe at his desk.
  17. Happiest of New Years to you all (if you're into that sort of thing)! With the holidays behind me I hope to get back on track with more frequent posts. Here are three completed models from the Dwarf King's Court set to start off the new year. I was more than a little bit happy to receive that ancient (1982 is pretty venerable if you are 1" tall and made of lead) Citadel Miniatures boxed set for Christmas. My wife scored major points with that one! I have been plugging away at them since tearing the wrapping off, and have finished three so far. They are King Dumin Ironbeard, his bodyguard Orizad Oldrock, and the gnome jester, Corbit Shortstuff. I hope you like them. Comments and questions are always much appreciated. Thanks for looking!

    Orcs are unattractive!?

    Orcs are unattractive you say? Well just imagine Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy. Bam! Attractive female orc.
  19. Recently I was hired to paint another ten Circle Orboros Griffon models for a gentleman from Las Vegas. He already owns two that I painted last year, but he wanted to be able to field a veritable army of birdmen in his AD&D game. Here is the first of the batch.
  20. Hello, this is my first post to the forum. I painted this Bones Ezren, Iconic Wizard a month or so ago, and thought you might like to see how he came out. I'm pretty happy with the result, particularly the weapon swap. The staff was pretty bent and I was having little success in getting it to remain straight, so I decided to swap it outright for a sword. Questions and comments are welcome.

    Slaine Paint Along

    I'm taking part in a paint along over at CMON. The figure is from an independent sculptor, Olivier Bouchet. It's a 54mm fantasy figure titled Gokan, the Guardian, but as someone pointed out it has a striking resemblance to the comic character Slaine. So that's how I'm painting him. If anyone is interested, the paint along just started. Most people are just receiving the figures and only a few have started to paint. There's still plenty of time to join in. Here's the link to the thread http://www.coolminiornot.com/forums/showthread.php?58625-Gokan-group-painting-competition And here's the link to the sculptor's site where you can order the figure [link removed] Here's the current state of the figure I'm doing a full step by step tutorial as I paint this figure so people can follow for the paint along if they want (though I expect to see many different versions/takes on this figure). The tutorial is posted on my painting blog but I thought I'd share part of it here too. This is how I went about painting the tartan. The tartan pattern can seem really difficult and intimidating, but really if you can paint stripes then you can paint a tartan. The trick is to break down the pattern into different parts. I based my tartan on this one I started by base coating the tartan in the background color, orange (Reaper's Oiled Leather). Now I don't worry about all the different stripes, I just start with the most significant ones. Here that's the thick brown stripes (mix of Oiled Leather and Blackened Brown). I lay out the horizontal stripes first. Since the bottom is jagged I used the top at a guide. Try to keep the horizontal, but follow the contours of the cloth and adjust as necessary. Do your best to keep their spacing and thickness consistent. With those finished I add in the vertical stripes. Again, watch the thickness and spacing. Next I add in the dark squares (pure Blackened Brown) wherever the stripes cross Now I go in and do my shading and highlighting. This is also a good time to clean up the lines as needed. If you keep tweaking and cleaning up minor issues as you go the entire process is much more manageable. If you want until the end it can be overwhelming. That looks pretty decent, but we can do more. So now we move to the next most significant detail. In this case the two thin brown stripes on either side of the thick ones. Placement of these is easier as you can use the first set of stripes as a guide. Just watch the spacing. Again, wherever they cross another brown stripe I switch to pure blackened brown to make the cross over section darker. I just continue on down the levels of detail. Up next are the thin horizontal white stripes and the thin vertical yellow stripes. When they cross the orange sections, I mix them with Oiled Leather. When they cross the brown sections, I mix them with Blackened Brown. Not too much, just enough to be noticeable. The end result is complex, but if you just take it one set of stripes at a time and build up the pattern it's really not as difficult as you'd think.
  22. I'm more than a little bit pleased about my latest acquisition, a box of Perry Miniatures War of the Roses Infantry. These guys are true 28mm scale, but will fit right in with most other 28mm model, even the big-head/big-hand Games Workshop "heroics." I've only had time to assemble and paint two of them. Let me know what you think! Questions and comments are always welcome. Thanks for looking (I was going to do a traditional smile face, but this one was too cool to pass up).

    Dwarf Treasure Hunters

    Hey all, I mentioned in a previous thread that I had been working on a Dwarf Treasure Hunters warband for the Mordheim game. Here are the pictures that I have so far. These are all Games Workshop or Marauder Miniatures. Questions and comments are always welcome. Thanks for taking the time to look!

    Warhammer Imperial Dwarf

    Hey all, just a quick picture of an Imperial Dwarf from the early days of Warhammer Fantasy. He is pulling duty as the Noble for my Mordheim Dwarf Treasure Hunters these days. His color scheme set the stage for the entire warband (which I can post another time if there is interest). Questions and comments are always welcome. Thanks for looking!

    Mordheim Goblin

    Hey all, my friends and I have been bitten by the Mordheim bug again as of late. For those of you who don't know, Mordheim is a long-abandoned skirmish-level war game by Games Workshop. Bands of explorers, adventurers, and miscreants comb through the ruined city of Mordheim in search of Wyrdstone (radioactive meteorite chunks). One of the best things about this game is that you only need eight to ten models for your warband. That allows for some fantastic converting and modeling opportunities. This fellow is a goblin a pieced together from a variety of GW kits. I hope you like him. Comments and questions are certainly welcome!
