  1. Since I own a lot of Fantasy/Greek/Roman/Byzantii and other Ancient CIVS minis.. I decided to give them their own thread. In the spoiler you'll find some Historical Background how the Major Nations interacted / influenced each other which is the inspiration for this thread. The Greek, Romans and Byzantii ( Fantasy Versions of course) will be the stars of this thread but there's some room for Rome's enemies like Celts, Gauls and Germans etc. Hope you'll enjoy this. Since it's Fantasy it will not always be historical correct, but inspired by both History, Religion and Fiction like Xena, Gladiator etc. My main collection consists of 3D files but there might be some physical minis as well that fit the bill. So far I collected a lot of files, here's what I can choose from at the moment, I suspect I might acquire more in the future.
  2. Went fairly simple on Cerberus and employed a lot of dry-brushing but I got the color I wanted so that was the ultimate happy. I genuinely wish he wasn’t quite hunkered down so low as to be scraping the earth with one of his chins.
  3. Thought this would be a good figure to practice non metallic metal on. There are a lot of surfaces with different angles to work out the light and shadow. Not as happy with the shadows on the cloak, I think I picked the wrong reds.
  4. Hello All, Here are photos of a Dark Heaven Legends 02702 "Hercules, Human Barbarian" I completed last week. All parts are pinned. Thank you for looking.
  5. My 1 and a half year long D&D campaign in Theros has ended today and the present I gave each of my players was an amphora painted in ancient Greek style with the epic tale of their character. Big thank you to Nautical3D on Etsy for printing me these great amphoras! And a giant thank you and much love to my players for sticking with me as I learned to DM and improvise sessions. They kept coming back every other week for my stories which gave me confidence that maybe it's worth sharing my art with the world. 🙂 I planned these amphoras as a gift 1 year ago and most of the work was waiting for the campaign to happen so I know what to paint haha! I looked at a lot of pictures of ancient Greek vase art and then made some concept art. Finally I put brush to vase and the final result happened. Enjoy! This is the side with the main characters and the reverse side - a character that was important to their story Sophia the warlock, human oracle. She was secretly a time traveler, here to repair the time flow and she was a champion of Kruphix. Alcolus the satyr bard was another time traveler that they bumped into and he worshiped Karametra. Laetus the leonin barbarian, overly proud champion of Heliod. He saved a Pegasus among many others. Amaranthe, the wood elf monk, a champion of Kruphix. She comes from the elusive Black Forest NW of Theros, guided by her god when her home was destroyed. Vanessa the cougar tabaxi rogue comes from the same place. They meet over a game of chess. Urisys, the satyr bard, champion of Klothys. She can see the strands of destiny tying people to where they are meant to be and she guides them on their right path through her songs. She loves to sing in taverns and there is always a crowd with her. Zelos, the minotaur fighter, champion of Iroas. He and his twin brother were trialed by the gods in an athletics competition when they were young and they both did well. But while Zelos went and won the Akroan games and became a legendary athlete, his twin, Kratos became a champion of Mogis. Destined to fight, their clash caused the two gods to fuse together into the long forgotten god of war which I depicted as a soldier riding a white bull. Thrassios, the triton ranger, devout champion of Thassa. The Tidelock Pearl was stolen from Thassa and he set out to get it back. Turns out Purphoros sent his champion, Lynda the steam golem to steal the pearl because he wanted to create flesh and blood creatures like Thassa did instead of just metal ones and this artifact would help him do that. Once the story got out, Thassa was both mad and flattered by her secret admirer. In the end, the two gods ended up dating and learning from each other's love for building and creating. Here are some photos from the process and some concept art I made to learn the ancient Greek painting style.
  6. Pochi


    This is Circe and friends from Bones 5. I looked up descriptions of Circe and she was described as “lustrous” and “the nymph with the lovely braids" and that she had hair like fiery rays. I tried to portray that in my painting. She is beautiful and I love her clothing. The little boars are so cute! Almost too cute!
  7. Considering this is a Reaper forum, I don't post nearly enough Reaper stuff! Going to try remedying that by slowly going through that big box of Bones V I've got perched on top of my stack of unpainted things. I'm starting with Hercules (Didn't expect him to be my first choice, but I have been watching a lot of Greek Myth stuff on Youtube lately):- This is after I've prepped him, primed him, had a second go at the mold-lines (I'm trying to get better at this), re-primed and finally given a Brown Wash. Got a little problem going on with his right arm, from the back it's all bulging muscle, but from the front the gap between his bicep and club is filled in with something. Not sure how to fix this, so I decided to paint it as part of his lion cape (And hope no one notices the two halves don't line up). Huh, mystery solved. Looking at it now in these piccys, I can see that weird bit of arm is actually his thumb. Painted his lion cape first (I'm a messy drybrusher). This was a base of Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow, then a Brown Wash, then drybrushes of Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow and Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow/Bonewhite. While the mane and tail end were a base of Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow/Leather Brown, Brown Wash and drybrushes of Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow/Leather Brown and Iraqi Sand/Ochre Yellow/Leather Brown/Bonewhite. Finally, it got Bonewhite claws, Dwarf Skin paw pads and then everything got Sepia Wash. While I'm on the computer I need to see if lions have special noses, if not then tomorrow I start on the skin of Hercules!
  8. Helen the Spartan from Polish company Wargamer LLC (SKU HD-28-38) also managed to sneak into my painting queue ahead of my squad of half-painted dark elves. Helen is from the Hot & Dangerous 2 Kickstarter. I attempted a green marble floor, I think it came out ok.
  9. This is Thrasios, a triton ranger and one of the players in my D&D 5e Theros campaign. I built this mini in Hero Forge according to the player's description and added my own touches to it. For example, I was inspired by the neon tetra fish in painting the skin and I used Greek hoplite reference pictures to paint the armor.
  10. Here is my rendition of Pegasus, figure #516 in the Greek Odyssey expansion for the Bones V Kickstarter. I love the sense of motion, grace, and power in Julie Guthrie's sculpt. This is a resin master figure, not a production piece in Bones plastic. It took me waaaaay too long to paint this. I got the figure more than a year ago but I couldn't decide on a color. I ruled out the traditional "white horse with white wings" but that still left ... well, infinity-minus-one options. I imagine this Pegasus flying along a sunny rocky coast. The pale buckskin colors are inspired by a photo of a mustang, and the wings by the juvenile (brown) plumage of some species of gulls, which I found in Sibley's encyclopedic bird book. When I painted Reaper's peryton (also sculpted by Julie Guthrie), I took my cue from hawk wings, but this time I looked at birds other than raptors. These wings seem to have a different shape from most hawks or eagles (falcons maybe), and I figured that Pegasus wouldn't have the colors of a carnivore/raptor. The turquoise-blue eyes tie in with the color of the water below. Enjoy, Derek
  11. Hi all, just finished this one last night, hope you enjoy! Another really nice figure from Chris Fitzpatrick and his company Crocodile Games. This was from their most recent Kickstarter if I'm not mistaken. Thanks for looking!
  12. Medusa is easily among the most beautiful sculpts I've ever painted. My hat is off to Sebastian Archer, he really outdid himself with this one. After I posted the first one, another client asked me to paint her up for him. I mostly followed my original color scheme, except this time I used true metallics in place of the non-metallic metals I used the first time around. I'll need to paint one up for myself sometime. She really just screams to be in a competition. I've posted her to coolmini for anyone who cares to vote. The translucent fabrics make me think I ought to go with links for her: http://www.gardenninja.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/arena-rex/Medusa-1.JPG?i=1414459205 http://www.gardenninja.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/arena-rex/Medusa-2.JPG?i=1968411908 http://www.gardenninja.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/arena-rex/Medusa-3.JPG?i=239197043
  13. Hi all, so want to work on bronze, and doing it as NMM . Any suggestions for base, shade and highlight colors?
  14. I painted up Aquarius and Virgo as statues for my Dragons Don't Share Ruins. My WIP is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71651-dragons-dont-share-2/ I am still working on the overall but I was happy with how my "statues" turned out so wanted to share them in a Show Off! I can't get over how cute these two little minis are. I had no idea they were so cute. I will be buying more to paint as "normal" but I think they make excellent statues as well! Pictures of Virgo in first reply.
