  1. For my second Grenadier mini I went with another martial type, #7 Swordswoman. This time I went with the box art for the color scheme, though I do believe that the svelte reptile perched on her straw hat in the art gained a few pounds. I guess it was to be a familiar for a fighter/mage? I still haven't picked up any hollow blanks so she's just chillin' on the integrated base for the moment. I also tried a new background. My printer decided to add pinstripes but I went ahead and tried it in order to see how well it worked.
  2. Another that bridged the new year. Werner Klocke's Hyrekia, Sorceress. She turned out rather poorly. I got her second hand, and she'd already been primed. There were some defects in the primer, apparently, that really showed up with the paint. Add that to my natural problems, and, well, yeah. Really should've green-stuff'd her all the way down. But didn't. She also looks weirdly eyeless in the photo of her face. I don't do eyes beyond some dotting of sorts, but she looks like one of those thingies out of a Robert Jordan book. So yeah. Grabbed her and started painting because I wanted to paint a white dress. I at least did get a white dress out of the deal. Thanks for looking. Really rough, even for me, but I figured she'd work for tabletop if an occasion ever arose.
  3. For my next Grenadier mini I chose the "Guardswoman." She is showing a decent amount of skin so I decided to use her as an experiment in doing a darker skintone with the Scale75 flesh set. My main concerns were that my basecoat would look a little too red (it did) and that the jump between the shadow and the midtone colors of the set was so large that it would require a half-step (it did). Fortunately a few simple glazes was all it needed to get the colors as I wanted them, though I didn't put the time in to get perfectly smooth transitions. For the rest I once again went with the color scheme as shown on the box art. Since she was already a test I decided to use her for another couple of experiments. I don't have any personal recipes for NMM steel or gold, but I do have some colors that I think should work. Just as with the skin, the NMM was all about seeing how the colors worked rather than getting the smooth blended necessary for the effect. Before I really go all in, I want to study some properly lit metal (which excludes the majority of CMON). Since I decided to do this halfway through I also ran into a bit of an issue with rough edges that I hadn't worried about during the prep stages. It's tricky to do edge highlighting when the edge itself is flawed. Since on the box she's a guard getting ordered about by an Egyptian looking person I did a simple freehand of the Eye of Horus on her shield. Also, this is yet another true 25mm mini with eyelids... and I just don't see what you all are complaining about.
  4. I tried to use Rhonda Bender's excellent paint job as a guide for my version of Kyrie the Female Barbarian which was a special edition mini from the RAC. I acquired her during the 12 days of xmass. I still have no idea how Rhonda manages to paint those itsy bitsy eyes! Without further rambling I give you my lame attempt at this lovely mini from Julie Guthrie! Comments are always appreciated!
  5. Bobby Jackson's Darkshade Raider. Thought this mini was so cool; had a beast of a time painting it. But yeah. Still love her motion et al. Also turned into my first messing around with basing, such as it is. Saw this stuff post-Christmas at Hobby Lobby, all marked down, some Santa's Village kind of stuff I guess, and thought it'd be useful for something. Didn't buy it, though. Then my wife went back the next week, saw it marked down even more, and snagged it for me. I married very well. Anyway, it's just a roll of felt-y plasticky whatevery stuff. I disassembled all but the top layer with the actual paving stones and then just glued it on, cut a hole for the tab, and bam. Democracy. Or something. More crappy pictures (still the same batch as before with all the trouble I was having), and of course poor painting. But a lot of fun. Thanks for looking!
  6. Dennis Mize's Tyden, Barbarian. I had a lot of fun with this lady. Thanks for looking!
  7. I painted her up for the Jan'15 Bones Beauty Pageant. Best face I've ever done thanks to Jessica Rich/Dark Sword vids.
  8. Back when I first started getting into miniatures I would scour ebay looking for deals. One of the purchases that I made was Grenadiers 2007 Females set for AD&D. I don't remember exactly what I gave for it, but I do remember being happy because I was getting metal cheaper than I could Bones. It then proceeded to sit on my self for another year, to go with the 34 years that it had sat on someone else's shelf. As part of my recurring painting goals I am tackling minis from companies I haven't painted yet so I pulled it off the shelf and too a look at it. One thing I noticed was that there were some annoying mold lines on them. They weren't big but were in places where it required some care to remove them, like right down a face. Another thing I noticed was that two of the eight were miscast, and both of them were in the same area - the left hand gripping the shield. I knew expectations of quality have changed a bit over the last three decades, but a 20% failure rate seems pretty high. It's not like there's an option to return them at this point though. Anyway, for my first Grenadier mini I chose "Fighter." After the time I put in on the KD Survivor I decided to do something nice and quick. She's mostly just a standard metal armor job, but I did play around some more with the Scale75 flesh set. After the initial layers were in place I started messing with glazes... and she ended up a full step darker than what she was when I started. We'll just say she got some tanning in. I also tried to make up a new recipe for flaxen hair, but it didn't work quite right. The shadows were fine, but the highlights weren't. Kinda like I did with the face I just put down the brush and said done. The one thing she doesn't have right now is a proper base. I need to see if I can track down some 25mm hollow blanks to use for the whole set. I'd rather sink them in than build up a flat base. Here's a shot of her shield hand. It was basically just a blob of metal going from her hand to the end of the shield. I did a bit of filing and then just put the colors in to hint at what should have been. I just realized I never took a good shot of her face, so here it is. Such tiny little eyes... and I now see that I forgot to touchup the shape of her eyebrow. Oh well, not noticeable on the tabletop anyway.
  9. The last of my postings from 2014, Werner Klocke's Bailey Silverbell, Dwarf. A lovely mini, and one I wanted to paint for a while, I finally grabbed her as my wife decided she wanted her to represent her (albeit gnome) rogue in a PF campaign I was running. Unfortunately, the campaign collapsed before she could put the mini into action, but I was nonetheless pleased that my wife loved me enough to let me paint a mini for her. And to play in an RPG. She's pretty good like that. Anyway, these pictures are pretty awful; I'm kind of posting just to post. The skill level is obviously not great, but I absolutely could not capture the dark colors I used. Everything's kind of a wash, here. But I did it, so here's it. Thanks for looking!
  10. The final painted miniature from the original LTPK 1-5 that I have painted. While I liked the way the front view turned out, I was less pleased about the rear view. Over all I'm glad I took the plunge and tried NMM. I plan to keep working this I like TMM as well, but I want to have technique better before I go back to TMM. And here is Tyden, Barbarian of the Shrubery...
  11. Here's the latest mini from my Meet the Girls WIP thread, the Great Game Huntress:- I got a little carried away making her base! Super pleased with her outfit, and I seem to be getting better at painting short hair. Unfortunately it looks like I've had a few problems with my varnish here and there. Comments and criticisms are, as always, much appreciated.
  12. 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 thin Violet Shadow, +Fair Skin for skin I’m not super happy with the eyes on an absolute scale, but I am very happy given that this is a Darksword model, and they have realistic (aka, tiny) eyes. The base is from Micro Arts Studios Dark Temple series.
  13. I painted her up for my Aasimar White Mage Arcanist in Pathfinder. I was worried having too much bright red, so added some copper. Really wish I didn't. Live and learn. Perhaps when I get better, I'll get another one and give it another go, if she doesn't get permanently killed.
  14. Two more from the shelf of shame! I have no idea which these were...the staff one says "partha" on the bottom but no identifier other wise...I am not terribly proud of this, and as you can see in my tags, the hair was the worst part, the 'slightly bluish' skin a far cry as well.
  15. Also painted up for the little people challenge:
  16. For my character, Kadu Valasdottir Ashfist in the the Shadows of Eldolan RP thread over here. Clan Ashfist is a mining clan whose lower reaches were home to an entity known as Umugar’abiuzzum, or “the Death in the Deepnessâ€. Many decades ago, the clan began offering minor prayers and eventually sacrifices to this being to ward off it’s evil influence, a practice that eventually became twisted into outright worship. It was into this environment that Kadu was born, never thinking twice about the religious practices she was raised with. Lord Reward Barning, a paladin of some note, organised an expedition into the mines to determine what became of several merchants from Horizon who had vanished in the region. The Ashfists initially attempted to deceive the expedition, but when it became apparent that this was not working, they changed tactics and sacrificed several of the humans to Umugar’abiuzzum. During the battle that followed, Kadu was one of several seized as hostages as the expedition withdrew. She spent the final 7 years of her minority amongst the monks of the Shrine of the Warden Agiel the Beneficent. Technically, she was a ward of the Shrine, though with her evil origins, she was treated as little more than a prisoner. When she reached adulthood, she elected to become a paladin of the order, a choice that surprised many at the Shrine and has left some skeptical.
  17. Elliwyn is my entry into the "Little People" Bones Beauty Pagent. I started her at the January meeting of NEMPA and finished her today. (I spent far too long on her for such a silly paint job.) I originally picked the colors to torment Qwyksilver, who was waxing poetic about color wheels at the time. I also originally tried to give her blue skin by mixing the hair color with a skin color, but it just looked too weird, so I painted over it - but not fully, as you can see - for an interesting effect. I mostly dug around in my paint collection for the brightest colors I had. The hair is Surf Aqua, tunic is Breast Cancer Awareness Pink, gloves and shoes are Jade Green (originally Alien Goo, but it was too bright). Shield is VGC Warlord Purple + Red Ink.
  18. Too bad she wasnt included in the beauty pageant. Maybe she'll be in the Bones 2 one.
  19. It's been an age since I've had time to post anything as I'm again participating in a 3 month Winter Painting Challenge. This year we have 70 painters from 14 different countries, so we will raise a substantial sum for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Since December 5th I've painted 40 figures which puts me in 50th place. The top painter has done over 1,000 figures. I am rather a small fry, but I do have loads of fun being a part of it all. Recently I painted this female. She is a Lady in Waiting and was sculpted by Tom Meier. It's unlikely that I'll have much time to stop in until late March. I wish you all the best and do miss you. Thank you for looking.
  20. So this is Pennies a gnome bard ( I still need to finish her character sheet before I can play her) my fourth mini painted in my first month of painting, I finished her on Wednesday night and she's also over in the little people beauty pageant. I think she's my favourite so far. Again her photo is a bit blurry (I used my iPhone to do them just to get them posted, generally I'm quite impatient). Any advice or points are welcome.
  21. This is my third mini, Niente a wood elf druid. She has an amazing amount of detail which I was frustrated with by he time I decided she was finished. I did attempt OSL on the fairy fire which you can't really see in the photos. I'm going to paint a bear, a wolf, a big cat (not sure which one yet) and an eagle for her. I need to re photograph her because I added snow to the base and she's blurry. Any advice or points are welcome.
  22. Hi I'm new here. I started painting about a month ago at a painting group with a guy I play D&D with. I just wanted to paint a couple of table top minis for my characters (my friend thinks this is hilarious). Anyway this was my first effort Tea, she's a half Orc barbarian with daddy issues. I know my photos are a little blurry, I may get that sorted at a later time. Any advice or points are welcome.
  23. This is my second mini Ester, she's the first D&D character I played with (am still playing with). She's a rogue (ed) so I wanted it to look like she was lit by moonlight and I found the face to be a nightmare particularly the eyes that are half obscured by the hood. I had so much trouble with this that I started to lose detail in the face so I've been working on trying to apply thinner layers. I do love the monochrome look and may attempt her again at a later date to get the face right. I know my photos are a little blurry, I may get that sorted at a later time. Any advice or points are welcome.
  24. Tabletop jobbie on the Bones version. I painted the metal a few years back for my elf army and liked the detail much better. The metal version has beautiful hair. The Bones version is just a blob.
  25. Here's my recently finished Survivor pin-up from Kingdom Death, along with my Forsaker and Twilight Knight pin-ups who I painted a while ago but never made a Show-off thread for (at least I think I didn't). Survivor:- I could've been a bit neater painting her bikini (stupid shaky hands!), but overall I'm pleased with how she turned out. (WIP thread available here Forsaker:- That basing idea worked so much better in my head! Her hair and cape could've used stronger highlights, but again, I'm pleased with how she looks. Twilight Knight:- Could've put more work into her sword blade, but I think she's the best of the three. So what do you think of the girls so far? Comments and criticisms are, as always, very appreciated.
