  1. 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: ]
  2. This was a quick paint job that I did to see if I could do a mini in one day. She was started when I volunteered at the Paint and Take at OrcCon where I worked on her for a few hours and then finished a couple of days later with another hour or two of work.
  3. I have an idea to paint a mini in really dark red, dark enough that the colors I've used as shades in the past would count as midtones or even highlights. This of course calls for a test subject. Enter poor Juliette, she of the miscast face and both hands. I was experimenting with the highlights a bit, but ended up with something that looked off. To correct for this I glazed over with red ink, which shifted the color back but made her a bit shiny. That's fine for tabletop I suppose since she'll get dullcote eventually, but is usually something I try to avoid. And the obligatory facial damage shot.
  4. A litte surprise attack ( No WIP). A quick job , I painted her in 2 hours to try some stuff out. She's from Ironwind Metals ( Ral Partha) and she is a lookalike of Vampirella, only a "bit" more "developed". She might not be nude but she wears so little I decided to link the Pics ..because well she might as well be naked. I had fun painting her and I tried a marble green base, not sure if this worked out, but practice practice...right? Paints involved..The Reaper Vampire Skin Triad..Scale 75 Antares Red, Inktense Red, Chestnut Ink , Elven Gold, Decay Black and Deep Blue. Vallejo Dark Forest Green , Reaper Olive Green Triad. *** Ooohh I like my new outfit...Thx Wolfie!!!

  5. So, I've probably just been watching too many anime shows lately, but I had an idea for an anime-type girl with a bow (and her head shaved all around the sides and just long on the top and done off to the side). I think she came out pretty well. I did a bit of a dolly that I cast in resin. That's why there is a tiny bit of white showing here and there in the midst of all the Green Stuff. There's also a hole in the resin in one leg, so I had to plug that with Green Stuff as well. Anyway, here's a front view... a side view... and a back view. Hope you enjoy her. I'm looking forward to Painting her :=) C&C always welcome!
  6. Painted this for a friend. One of my best minis to date. Pictures just don't do it any justice. I may be in the market for a new camera or just shell out some money for a better studio set up. Hope you enjoy.
  7. I feel a bit bad saying this, but since the Euro dropped in comparison to USD, I finally felt that it was worth it to splurge a bit on a mini I've always had my eyes on for a while: The casting is absolutely amazing; no mold lines to speak of, square slots fit like a dream. Only gap I see is in the two parts of the cape; I'll need to fill that before doing much else. Only boo-boo was the sword crossguard was snapped off... but I hate bits that fiddly anyways, and I was on the fence about adding it in. Dilemma solved. Assembled into all the major sections for now, need to think about what color the armor is going to be...
  8. Just a quick paintjob to get her off my shelf of shame, and to get into painting again after so much time spent sculpting and scratchbuilding. One of the more colorful minis I've painted; I usually don't have this many different colors in one mini. Turquoise was self-mixed; I think 1:1 Peacock Green and LED Blue, but I don't quite remember. Something close to that.
  9. Over the weekend I finished up Ingrid, Female Gnome from the Bones 1 Kickstarter's Half-Sized Heroes set. I pulled her out of the pile because I wanted to get another Thief figure painted up for Frostgrave. I didn't realize she was a Gnome when I selected her, so I painted her up as a Halfling. I thought the object in her hand, from the way she is holding it extended, looked like it was supposed to be some sort of magic light source; like the Phial of Galadriel in The Lord of the Rings. So, I had to have a nice debate with myself as to whether I was going to attempt serious Object Source Lighting for the first time, or skip the pressure and just paint her as if she was simply holding a snowball, or a rock. In the end I'm pleased. It's a little heavy handed; but I wanted it to look like a very stark unnatural lighting, and I think it does. I can also say there's lots of room for me to improve, but luckily its a skill I don't think I will have to call upon very often. C & C welcome, please. And with a little lighting effect...
  10. I painted up Mi-Sher this week. She is supposed to be wielding two swords, but I had borrowed her second sword a while back to use with my Chronomancer Apprentice, Sascha Dubois; and the figure had been sitting around my painting table off-handedly until I realized recently that with just one sword she would make a good Thug for Frostgrave. So, I found a suitable replacement hand from my bits box of hard plastic figure parts, and after prepping the figure, I super-glued the hand in place. I did a standard table-top job on her, and used a 10mm figure, painted up and mounted like a fallen and broken statue, to decorate the base. I'm generally happy with how the figure came out. The pose may be a little awkward without the second sword, but I like to think it looks like she is signaling to a compatriot as she runs along, or perhaps preparing to climb a ruin. As always, C & C welcome.
  11. The weekend I finished up Terezinya, Bonepander Wizard, the last of the Bones 1 Kickstarter Necromancer set that I had left to paint. Even though this figure is labeled as a wizard, I thought her lack of extensive armor, or anything particularly 'wizardy" looking about her outfit, and that fact that she is carrying just one weapon, made her a good candidate to be a Thug in my Necromancer warband for Frostgrave. Since she was just going to be a Thug (low-level fighter), I didn't do anything fancy with the paint job. Just a quick tabletop application. As always, C & C welcome.
  12. USPS tracking has been a bit uneven for me this time around, but it lists a delivery time of today and has been in the correct town since 4:30am, so I'm going to call it good. It was marked as delivered while I was typing this. If however you go by SGHawkins09 and haven't picked up your mail today, stop reading and savor the anticipation for a bit.
  13. Kangaroorex was my partner for the spring exchange. He requested a deep forest autumn theme. I already had a female elven ranger from dark sword miniatures that was a perfect match. Painted the ranger in browns and a green cloak to tie it in with the rest of the scene. Some time ago I got the idea to use ornamental balls for miniature bases. I bought some with a 10cm (4inches) diameter. Filled the bottom with lightweight modeling clay and sculpted the tree to fit in the ball. Added mushrooms to add to the autumn feel. The owl and the mouse are from Busch (1153 HO Small animals set) And made a custom base out of plastic card to put the ball in. I am happy how it turned out in the end.. Taking nice pictures of the shining ball is not easy, so I added some pictures without the ball.
  14. 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.
  15. This past week I started working on the Bones 1 Kickstarter "Necromancers" set, and over the weekend I finished painting the Ghoul Queen figure from this set. I had previously modified this figure, removing one of the scabbards she originally came with. You can find the thread where I showed the conversions I did, here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/67463-quick-and-easy-ghoul-queen-sword-conversion-bones-77175/ I painted and based her for tabletop use, to use as my Necromancer apprentice for Frostgrave. I'm generally pleased with how she turned out, though the highlighting on the scabbard bones came out a little heavy-handed. As always C-and C welcomed.
  16. I wanted to add a couple properly snow based necromancers to my Frostgrave collection, so I looked through the Bones I "Necromancers" set and selected two, one of which was the Ghoul Queen. I figure she will make a good apprentice for my Necromancer warband. As I studied the figure, I was bothered by the fact that she seemed to be wearing two scabbards, one with a sword and the other empty. I thought the empty scabbard looked kind of useless and redundant, so decided I would reduce her scabbard count down to one, and make it one that had a sword in it. Now, the easy thing to do would have been to remove the top sword, which is a glued on addition anyway, cut the hilt off and then glued the hilt to the empty scabbard. But the scabbard on her back is the cooler one with the bone additions, so some more intensive surgery would be necessary. First thing I did was use my hobby knife to pry the bone-scabbard sword off her back. Next, I very carefully cut the empty scabbard below the lower attachment ring, and then sliced it off the back of her dress. I then took the bone-scabbard sword, and cut it into four pieces, hilt, center section, lower section, and the little pin knob that fit into the hole in her back. After the surgery, it was a simple matter to glue the lower half of the bone-scabbard in place, then attach the hilt, and secure the cords hanging from it to the empty scabbard piece that remained below her right hand. I then glued the pin knob into the hole in her back and when it was dry, I sliced it down to be even with her back. I'm really pleased with how this conversion turned out. In my opinion, it makes the figure look much more streamlined and less busy. As always, C & C welcome.
  17. I decided I needed to finish something. I had her almost done except for the base since January. I went to paint her and I noticed her face had gotten an blob of blue from my rasia covering it almost completely. So I applied some W&N Brush Cleaner to it to clean it up. From there I repainted it, trying to match the colors as best as I could. I then attempted to freehand the base to match the diner tile to the best of my ability and desire, she is a speed paint for a tabletop game. She was a speed paint using Wappel's shaded basecoat method. I finished most of her up in a weekend. The rest I did up tonight. I wanted her clean to contrast with the dirty zombies. Here she is:
  18. This past weekend I finished Tierdeleira, Dark Elf Cleric, from the Bones I Kickstarter "Dark Elves" set. This wraps up this set for me. I did a quick tabletop paint job, and I'm really pleased with how this figure turned out. I think I finally got the hang of highlighting the black skin. The only thing I'm not happy with is that I wanted the two different reds, the one I used on her cape (a more burgundy red) and the one I used on her ribbon-like hangings (a more true red), to look more different but they ended up looking very similar. I should have been even more drastic in my base color choices there. As always, C & C welcome.
  19. For those that have followed along with my "All Bones About It" blog, where I'm chronicling my effort to paint all the Bones 1 Kickstarter figures I purchased, I was happy today to have reached the 200th figure out of the 266 that I am painting from Bones 1. It feels good to hit another milestone on this adventure! It seems all down hill from here, with only 66 figures left to go. With some real determination I think I can get it done by the end of the year. Currently I'm working on the Dark Elves set, and this past week I completed Liela, Dark Elf Wizard, from that set. I did a quick table-top paint job on her, and I'm generally pleased with it except I feel her face came out rather flat, and her expression rather dull. I don't think I was thinking in terms of the added difficulty of doing a pure black face when I did hers. I'll be more prepared next time. :) ​As always C & C welcome.
  20. This mini was a good opportunity to practice darker skin tones, and I am pretty happy with how the skin turned out. The foot wrap things on the other hand are pretty messy. Good enough for the table! And I added a T-shirt, since I didn't think she should have to worry about a wardrobe malfunction all the time.... Edited to fix SKU in title.
  21. April O' "Beil" I started painting this before I knew about the Ninja Turtle Kickstarter that's going on right now. Happy accident.
  22. I painted this up a few days ago. I really like this sculpt! Very heroic. I wanted to get her tabletop ready, and my bedroom lighting did my cell phone photos no favors. I'm still trying to develop that level before I try anything I'd truly want to display. Or a dragon. I have one, but I'm intimidated by it. Anyway! Enjoy this heroic lady admiring her gigantor-sword.
  23. So stripping figures and cleaned up this lovely NOT Alias looking mini... The item at her feet in the 1st 2 pics are her sword and right hand. Markings on base are Ral Partha 1997. After looking in my '97, and winter 98/99 catalogs, nada. Looking through Lost Minis wiki, nada... Help! Thanks! George
  24. I am trying to pick up painting again after a very busy time. This female mage is a bit of a test with OSL. Not really sure if I pulled it of to my liking. The fox is from another set from dark sword. Now I see the pictures I can see some more damage from when I dropped her. The tree I made myself.
  25. I like painting horses. Which is good since I've got a LOT of cavalry and centaurs in the 'to be painted' piles. Here's the back and the front pictures are linked for nudity. FYI - that kind of coloring is called a morgan bay. Side front view Front view
