  1. Boys and girls of every age--would you like to see something strange? Some no-account mischief-makers on a raid between realms... What's in the sack?! A hostage! A fearsome king with a deep mighty voice! Clasping bulging sacks in his big great arms! They call him...Sandy Claws. More turnarounds: The Pumpkin King, Mister Unlucky, aka Halloween Jack, has got it into his head to try a new job. He's got the basic idea, but never really understood. Snakes and mice get wrapped up so nice, with spider legs and pretty bows. Again, more pix: "Release me or prepare to face the dire consequences! The children will be needing me, so please come to your senses!" This was another fun project. Gauntfield makes a magnificent Jack Skellington. The Santa is the Bones version of 50208. I'll be honest, when I painted the Grave Minions a while back, I had Lock, Shock, and Barrel in mind for the color schemes. Guest appearance by the Tree of Despair, 44131. The Sally analogue is Autumn the Scarecrone, from Bombshell. It was simply meant to be.
  2. Does this guy have an official name yet? I've seen him referred to as the "Big Scarecrow," but I've just been calling him a Pumpkin Golem. Anyway, he was a really fun model to work on. I wanted the head to seem Tim Burton-esque. I feel like I pulled it off somewhat. I also wanted to make sure the head and scythe blade would stand out as the primary focal points (hence, the relatively drab colors everywhere else). I was really happy with how the straw came out, but painting each individual strand one by one took for-EVER. I made sure to get a shot of the base before I glued him on. I know that, realistically, the corn stalks shouldn't be such a vibrant green come harvest time. But, I felt it would work well with the green coat. Plus, let's face it, there's NOTHING natural about this abomination. Anyway, thanks for looking. Comments welcomed.
  3. Hello all, Here are photos of a 30103 Bones USA "Cynthia, The Wicked Witch" I completed recently. Thank you for looking. Happy Halloween!
  4. Hello All, Here are photos of a metal 01449 "Halloween Knight" I completed recently. Thank you for looking.
  5. Here's another cool Etsy find. A green skinned purple witch on a broom. One of my Halloween minis for the month.
  6. I was testing another simple palette and trying to get through more of these Halloween minis. So far I'm on a roll. I've been sitting on this one more than a year and it was time to break it out of its blister pack. I'm pretty happy with how she came out. I was testing a color-shift from purple to red. Pretty cool effect that came out. Hair on this one is the weak point, but I didn't have a brighter color to punch it up. Oh well, check it off my list.
  7. @Rigel and @Poilu_1914 this one's for you. Pushed the black up with a nightmare black and blue combo. Your thoughts?
  8. Even if you've posted them before, grab your Halloween mini's, old and new, and cram them into a pic! Went with a group shot and diorama here, but post whatever you'd like. Chibi miniatures, Mr. Bones, pumpkin-heads, and Mausoleum by Reaper Ghost, log on fire, animated broom, legged cauldron, and Murder Chicken from Wildspire's "Enchanted Objects" set. Scarecrows and pumpkins by Tiny Furniture. Squealer witch and toad by RBJ Games. Wagon from Battle System's "Village" set. Other cauldrons by Archon. OOP Halloween bases by Secret Weapon. Box background from Loke Battlemat's RPG Toolkit sets. "Stop him! We're trying to take a picture, here!"
  9. In my attempt to tackle minis quickly this month, I'm shooting for easier projects. Things without lots of baubles and pieces. This guy was basically down to Bones. #rimshot
  10. And here's another less busy one that was relatively easy. I attempted dry brushing to cover most of it. Weird that I got that cracking paint around the eyes and other areas.
  11. Here's another Halloween one. This was a fast one. 1.5 hours.
  12. Halloween is coming and I gotta keep up on this pace. Trick or treat!
  13. Welcome to the Freak and Role Universe this Christmas! Are you looking for a unique and exciting way to decorate your Christmas tree this year? You have come to the right place! We present our exclusive collection of Freak and Role-playing Christmas Balls, where the magic of the season merges with the exciting world of role-playing games, science fiction, horror and the most freaky things. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/422926664/3d-printable-christmas-balls-freaks-and-rol?ref=68zz67&mc_cid=abeb3bef2e&mc_eid=69301484c2
  14. I started Rotpatch last year during spooky season, but didn't finish up in time, so he ended up getting pushed to the back of the painting desk because I was upset at not finishing. Anyway, I got my self in gear and got him done this weekend since Halloween will be here in just 135 days. The base seemed a little plain, so I sculpted some extra pumpkins from green stuff and added a couple of skulls to the base. I figure the skulls make it look like he's been 'busy' as well as adding the feeling that perhaps that's not just rust on his scythe. I hope you like him.
  15. There has been some talk on the boards of people's costumes, the wearing of them and how they change things and what people are working on. So I'd like to throw open the question, What is your costume? It can be any approach. Are you working on one now? Are you a fan who appreciates them but doesn't make them? Do you have a favorite costume? Do you have favorite memories of one? Do you like realism, or abstraction, history, sci fi, or fantasy? Does costuming connect to your gaming or other hobbies? When and where do you wear costumes? Are you making something for another person? Or for a doll maybe? What's your favorite one you've seen? What would you make if you had the materials and time? *** I'll start. I have a reproduction late-eighteenth century dress in a big floral print in shades of red and blue on white, complete with undergarments, big pockets, mitts, a ruffled cap, and cocked hat that I had been wearing to our neighborhood's annual Fourth of July parade. But I've been feeling weirder about it in the last few years since late eighteenth century dress has become political in a direction I am not. So I've found myself turning towards the struggles of the Suffragists a century ago. I've been reading old mail order catalogues from the First World War and checking out the eminently practical suits women wore at the time -- big pockets everywhere! At this point I have plans for nearly everything except a suit. I have undergear and petticoats, a blouse, nearly acceptable shoes, hats to be modified, a good pattern for spats, and a pageant-style banner edged with green and purple ribbon* ready to be painted front and back with "Votes for Women". At this point it would be nice to make a historically accurate suit, but looking at what I have, I think it would be a fairly convincing impression with any reasonably matched jacket and calf-length skirt. *Those are the colors of the English suffragists, not the US ones, but I'm okay with that.
  16. Hey everyone, it's been a while. I prepared a little something for Halloween. Here is my keepsake, The Headless Mousling. This model was sculpted by Gene Van Horne in 2014 for the Reaper Artist Conference. I painted it with Reaper MSP paint. Happy Halloween and stay safe!
  17. Inspired by the weekend question, I took some pictures of the army thus far and found that posting it in the question thread would be excessive, also that I didn't have an ongoing thread for my largest painted army so here it is. The plan is to get my Shelf of Incompleteion cleared off then work on reinforcements for this alongside my Old School Undead army. Here we have the Pumpkin construct unit led by a Storybook Witch from Old Glory. I have 3 more of her, but the bag only came with the one flight stand and the Reaper ones I have don't fit, when I get around that, they'll form their own unit. Behind her is Rotpatch, and the scarecrow is hanging out with these guys until I can get a couple more. The constructs are filling the slot of core infantry. Here is a Ral Partha Witch leading the Pumpkin Knight heavy infantry consisting of the Halloween Knight and converted Barrow Wardens. Willow Greenivy leading the skeletal Pumpkin Guard. 10 newer GW skeletions and a variety of Reaper Bones. Elise with the Pumpkin Chucker and some Bones skeletal archers providing ranged support. A female Necromancer and the Etherial Legion of ghosts and wraiths. An Iconic Witch, Pumpkin Spider, and friends. A converted Brettonian Sorceress with the skeletal heavy infantry. Basically, what happens when adventurers irritate the witches. Bats, wolves, and allied vampires. Another vampire and werewolf allies. Zombies, ghouls, and another Reaper Witch. Beastmen and hell hounds with an infernalist witch.
  18. I was testing the army painter speedpaints. I have to say I'm not a fan. It doesn't allow as much variation. I'm a layer guy. Now i gotta find someone i can offload these to.
  19. Just a set of Halloween fun. Gotta keep going with Spooktober! Vlad "Pull my finger" the Flatulator...less well known, but just as deviant as his cousin the impaler. Tessa the "Crone" Vivian MickJager aka The Lips
  20. I had a lot of fun with this one. I had painted the Overgourd last year, but missed my chance to submit it for my local October contest. I've been waiting to put him into the ring. Funny enough my daughter goes, "Dad he's kind of looking down on something. It'd be cool if there was a guy that didn't know he was there." And that's how the idea for the diorama was born. The pieces were based to be used with something else later. I figured it was a good test to see if i could make some kind of hole for he bases to slot into. Not perfect but not bad. I found two henchmen that were perfect monster fodder. I call this one "always look behind you"
  21. Halloween Knight from Bones 5. Putting him in the theme category at my local IPMS show. Monsters and Machines, the obvious and machines with monster names like a C-130 “Specter” gunship. Pretty sure this fits.
  22. There is something strange going on in the village lately. People hear footsteps like those of a child, things tends to be in a different place then where they left them. Children have nightmares and seem to be afraid of their toys even. And it's getting worse, it started with a few missing pets, but now Old Lady Harrington is missing, nowhere to be found. Could it have something to do with that new girl living at the edge of the village? Her name is Lilith, and she is so friendly, she gave every child in the village one of her handcrafted dolls for free. But still, there's something strange about it all. Constable Burton decided to have a look at her place. So one night he walked to the edge of the village, he saw lights shining through Lilith's windows. He could be wrong of course, such a nice girl, but he had a hunch and he really wanted to know. So he opened the door. The moment he did he knew he shouldn't have... Lilith and the Creepy Dolls are 3d printed on my Elegoo Mars. Design from Dragon Trapper's Lodge. Bookcases are from Minimonster Studios and Reaper Bones. Table and benches fom Reaper Bones. Floor was made with a GreenstuffWorld Rollerpin. Wall is a plasticcard base. Hope you like it
  23. It's that time of year for Orcs...but I already did that. So it's time to get spooky instead! Here's my latest from Bones V (and recent promos) on that front. The Overgourd, since they demand an October paint job: Scarecrows: vampiresses of Ravenhome: Captain Barty Redd: And his Zombie Crew:
  24. Still needs some basing, but he's off to a good start. Interesting how this worked out. I did dry brushing on the first two layers of greens. Then went back in with regular brush and layers, but didn't think it was loud enough. What this? A huge stock pile of BCA pink? Better put it to use. I mixed that into the alien green and base, then touched it up with pink to add some warmth (i mean as warm as aghast should be #dead) in the highlights. Pink and green were a fun combo. I'm not totally into the tattered shirt colors the more i look at it. I may need to use a wash over it, which i try to avoid, to add some dirt/grime look to it. It's too clean and vibrant. But hey, i did layer nicely. Win. I wasn't sure about the facial features. I ended up just touching it up with a little green yellow for discoloration around the mouth, but seems like he still needs something. Next thing i need to do is make a fun base for him. Something Halloween feeling for sure. Thanks @Reaper_Jonfor the ghoulie bags and free minis. Putting them to good use.
  25. Just in time for the season! I happened to be going through some sort of a creativity crisis. I would start on a figure and almost right away stop feeling it. This guy seemed to shake me up quiet nicely. Although, I did get tired at the end and rushed a few things. But, as I remember, the profys recommend "paint more minis" as oppose to sitting over one for eternity trying to get it to perfection.
