    77276 - Sea Hag

    I got the Sea Hag in a bonus pack during last year's Hallowe'en promotion and just got around to painting her up. (Well, starting to paint her up anyway.) Thankfully I looked up Pingo's WIP thread where she commented on some of the details I'd missed, like the starfish on the back of the left leg and the crab on the back of the right arm! (Although I did clue in to the octopus... I'm blind, but not that blind... ) This makes two Julie Guthrie sculpts in a row for me (the last one was the Christmas hoard dragon) and I gotta say, I'm loving her work more with each one. So many details, but of just the right size and style that they're incredibly fun to paint rather than being tedious. And really forgiving of the terrible paint jobs I'm applying! I should point out that I'm still at the stage of finish up the base coats and starting to sketch in highlights. I'm not quite this incompetent. First, the obligatory front and back view: And now a few close-ups of the details! I broke out the big camera and the macro lens for these... please forgive the horrifyingly awful paint jobs you'll see. The crab on the back of the right arm: The starfish on the back of the left leg: The octopus on the left arm: (And yes I realise I missed like half of the top tentacle. Imma fix that in a few.) Anywho... Thoughts? Suggestions on colour scheme? Etc.

    77186: Tiik Warrior (BONES)

    Alistair looked at the ring he had discovered in his master's study. The etching upon it have him some idea of how it worked, and he could not wait to test it out. He placed the ring upon his finger, and dove from the cliff into the quiet sea below. It took only a moment, and the magic took hold. He could breath underwater, just as easily as he could sitting at the table studying. He glided through the blue-green waters of the Glistening Straight, sinking deeper and deeper. Soon, he could see barely a foot in front of his face. Weaving a simple light spell, he illuminated the immediate area. As he touched down on the ocean floor, he was filled with excitement. What treasures lurked here, unseen for so long. He moved towards a large shadowy outcropping, discovering the remnants of a ship. Excitement again washed over him as he scrambled into the hold. In the distance, a faint pin point of light, just out of his illuminated radius. As he moved towards it, it seemed to withdrawl. Canceling his own source, he began to swim towards the faint light. Slowly it grew brighter. Suddenly, it was bright as a flash and he was stunned, captivated by the beauty of it. Until he felt the claws dig into his side. He tried to scream but was cut short. Darkness consumed him, and then silence. I painted this one up as a continuation of an underwater scenario I am planning for my players. There are now six of these in total that I will be painting. This was the first that I completed today while chatting on the hangouts. Hope you like it! CAH

    77189: Creature of Blood Reef

    The derelict vessel had been adrift for weeks. Food stores aboard the Serpent's Gaze had all but dried up, and the men were becoming volatile. "Land!! Off the starboard bow!! Land!", the cries rained down from the crow's nest like tears from the heavens. The captain gave the order, and the anchor was dropped. This island, from what they could see, had lumber.. lots of lumber. The shallows, however, would not hold the ship, and they could not risk being beached. A decision was reached that the first mate, Bulgrit, would take six members of the crew, and find a place to make camp. Then, they would begin the search for food, and lumber to make the repairs needed for the ship. The longboat was lowered, and the men rowed towards their salvation. Barely sixty yards from the ship, a scratching was heard and felt along the botton of the longboat. The water was still to deep for it to be coral. The scratching again, followed by a sudden thump. "Fear not lads, its likely a ..." and the longboat was capsised. From the ship, the men could hear the screams of terror and pain, as their shipmates fought for their lives. The waters churned, a sick bloody froth floated about the area, and the cries fell silent. It was over in a matter of minutes. "That weren't no shark..." I have a few of these to paint up for an underwater scenario I am running for my group. There are a few other aquatic themed bits that will go along with them, but this was the first one I completed. Hope you like it! CAH
  4. I had a the fortunate opportunity to paint a piece for Teskeria. I began the project with a concept of a shifter type character, a werecat. Searching through Reapers catalog of minis, I came upon this one. It clicked. And so, Thirysia was born. I had a lot of fun painting these two. I can not, however, take credit for the basing idea. During the Spring Mini Exchange, I received a ranger/wolf combo from Guildenstern that was done similarly. I liked the idea so much, that I used it for this one. I felt it fit too well not to. Thiryrsia was once a respected and noted ranger among the Shadowvale Elves, but a chance encounter would forever change her. Seeing her as cursed, she was cast out of the community, and left to fend for herself. Over time, she learned to control her shifting, and is no longer bound by cycles. With her Redmane companion, Xythis, she stalks the Shadowvale Forest as its most feared and fearsome protector. Here she is, Thirysia, Redmane Werecat, and Xythis her Redmane companion. (Note, the Redmane's are an elven hunting cat I use in my homebrew campaign.) CAH
  5. Don't Look Ethel!!! Too late... she was turned to stone! Ok, maybe not, but that's what this little guy is known for. This, like the lemures I posted earlier, are part of a collection I am doing for a local convention. This basilisk was inspired by the Pathfinder RPG basilisk, thus the green and yellow color pattern. Hope you like him! CAH

    Narthrax, Reaper Bones

    This is Narthrax from Reaper’s Bones series. Hate is a pretty strong word so I’ll just settle with saying that I strongly dislike huge+ miniatures. They take forever to finish and use up much more paint than I think. They are unwieldy forcing me to awkwardly hold them in my apparently acidic fingers, stripping the paint on tiny strategic areas. All and all Narthrax has been a pain to paint. I hit quite a few walls and restarted I think three or four times.I shudder to think how I’m going to finish Cthulhu, Khanjira, Kaladrax and all the others. One at a time I guess… But enough of the cons, now for the pros! * Eventhough Narthrax didn’t end up as I planned it in my head, I’m still pleased with the end result. I think the color scheme works. * I’m really happy with how the teeth and the eyes ended up * My first finished dragon! As for the mouth, I tried to shamelessly steal trodax brilliant paintjob (seen here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php/topic/69676-narthrax/)but with cold instead of fire. It didn’t quite work since I’m not up to the task of blending but it still looks kind of nice :)

    Mocking Beast, Reaper Bones

    The Mocking Beast from Reaper Bones. A really, really cool sculpt!

    60079: Lyrie Akenja

    This is one of the last figures from my year-end Conga Line of finishing up half-done minis, Reaper's 60079: Lyrie Akenja, a Pathfinder miniature sculpted by Julie Guthrie. She's a special figure to me. Lyrie Akenja is the first figure I bought after a twenty-year hiatus from minis. I spotted her somewhere, thought "Wow, an African wizard! Things sure have changed," and bought her, along with a few other minis. I then proceeded to give her the worst paint job I had ever given a mini in my life. I hadn't realized that I needed glasses nowadays, and I was too nervous to focus properly. So after some angst, I soaked her paint off and started again. And set her aside for a couple of years while I developed a new skill set. And then picked her up again to finish with the Conga Line. I like her little pushing the hood up with the wand gesture.

    Ghost, Reaper Bones

    This is the Ghost from Reaper's Bones miniatures line. I got started on it last year with a few quick runovers with green ink. Since then it has been collecting dust on the shelf but I figured I might as well finish it. So I did some highlighting on the face and hands and painted the headstone.

    77048: Mocking Beast

    Another quick paint job. Started in March, touched up and finished off (badly) sometime in April or May.

    Male Storm Giant

    I've spent quite a bit of time trying to get the skin tone right for this miniature. My goal was to find a color that was found in the very worst storms. I also changed the color of the skirt a few times - including white and purple. I think ochre is the one I like the most. Next I need to work on the eyes (my bane!) and my basing (which I also hate doing!). I'd welcome any feedback on the piece. Thanks, Nick PS. This is a Julie Guthrie Bones mini; she's one of my favorites.
  12. I love this snakeman from the Pathfinder line. After I had picked the major colors and done the base coats, I realized I had picked the 3 most difficult colors, black, red and yellow (kinda). Doh!

    77048 - Mocking Beast (Bones)

    This little guy is another of my favorite sculpts. I don't know what I find so interesting and funny about him, but I've been wanting to paint him for a while. Last night, a person from another crafting forum I am a member of, sponsored a painting night online. We grabbed out webcams, and logged in, and basically chatted about all things painting, gaming, and random other stuff. I chose to paint this little guy during that time. Overall, I am really pleased with how he came out. The picture blends the rusty bronze colored metal in with the wood, but in person it can actually be seen. I used a gloss varnish on the inside of the mouth, around the gums and sporadically on the teeth to give a wet feel to those bits. The base, though a simple cobblestone tile, I sculpted myself with greenstuff and actual tools this time. I hope you enjoy him as much as I enjoyed painting him. As always, C&C is welcomed and appreciated. Cheers. CAH
  14. I was at Adepticon in the Chicago area earlier this month. I took pictures. The whole album (except for Crystal Brush entry photos) is here, and here are some to look at: The legendary Julie Guthrie and Bob Ridolfi! The Reaper Paint 'N' Take: I took one picture of my work.I brought "Black Moon's Bane", the spelljammer, and a group of my painted minis. I also took Crystal Brush photos in a separate file. Photobucket is being a little wonky, but if I can get them straightened out I will post them by tomorrow. There were so many beautifully painted minis!
  15. Walked into an FLGS and am currently standing in front of this: I don't know what to do: they've got a bunch of the old ChaosWars dragons too. Prices seem to range between 35-45 Canadian. Is that what these are typically going for? Edit. O geese They've got the old Julie Guthrie dueling Dragons set by Chaoswars too.

    77364: Angel of Shadows (new cropped photos)

    My first finished piece with some minor OSL, made as a gift for a very dear friend of mine. The head of this otherwise beautiful bones miniature had some casting flaws, so I swapped her head with a cast copy of a Kingdom Death Sunstalker dancer Pin-up miniature. Any critique is very much appreciated, since I just want to learn and keep getting better with miniature painting.

    03739 Female Wraith

    Finished this up at *mumblety* o'clock last night this morning. It's my first attempt at OSL, so I definitely welcome feedback. I'm overall pretty satisfied, but I think the cast light on the torso is too harsh. I got a bit carried away, which makes me sad on account of it more or less obliterated the work I did on the body. I spent some time researching what human decay actually looks like because I wanted her to look corpse-y rather than ghost-y, and I was quite proud of how the flesh came out--realistic but not too off-putting. I wish I'd taken pictures of that. :/ Anyway, I wanted to take a "death positive"/memento mori approach with this piece; more of a "guide for the dead" than a threatening presence, hence the softer palate and the lush landscaping on the base. Ultimately I'm hoping she'll go well with Tombstone of Protection (03738) and Tombstone of Sorrow (03737) as a nice little vignette.

    77043 Eye Beast WIP

    Here is what is on my table at the moment. He is going to be the general for one of two factions my PCs are having to deal with. He leads an army of aberrations that they will have to deal with. He's been blast to paint so for, and torturous as well. I have a hard time with eyes, so this has been a huge challenge so far. I need to clean up the smaller eyes, and bring out some of the highlights on body, the teeth, as well as finish the base. CAH

    Ralshana, Dragonborn Paladin of Justice

    This is Ralshana, a Dragonborn Paladin serving the ideal of justice. This was done for a friend of mine to represent her character in our D&D 5th game. In truth, Ralshana uses a greatsword, but I couldn't find a halfdragon with one. Other than that, I think I captured the nature of the character. I am really pleased with how she came out, though my picture taking skills are somewhat lacking. I took great pains to highlight the scales of her body, as well as the scales on her armor. Some of that gets lost in the picture. I'm still learning about light diffusion and such. I hope you like her! And as always, CC are always welcome. Ralshana (front): Ralshana (back): There was a crack in the sculpt that I noticed, after I had primed and based her. Not sure how I missed it. I was out of greenstuff, so I just kind of went with it.

    03566: Valloa, Elf Thief

    Looks like I forgot to post this little beauty from the year-end Conga Line of Doom. This is Julie Guthrie's Valloa, Elf Thief, SKU 03566 from Reaper. Something happened to my original set of photos. These were taken after she was varnished and she is a little satin-finished, making it a little harder to see the painted shiny leather effects. I really like this figure.
  21. This is one of the first minis I bought after coming back to the hobby after a twenty-year hiatus. I started her, then stalled for a long time, then finished her off as part of my year-end Conga Line. She's a nice figure.
  22. This is another figure from my Conga Line. She was one of my earliest purchases after coming back to the hobby, but it took me a while to finish her. I love all the pretty little details Julie Guthrie sculpted onto her. I enjoyed playing with fabric transparency in an entirely family-friendly way. ETA: Oh hey, I just noticed she's the first Pathfinder figure I've painted.
  23. I stumbled across this tonight. But apparently it was released last week. Am I the only one who hadn't seen this yet? First of a new series of seasonal spirits. Looks like it was released at the same time as the Ranger "Flat", which I have seen talked about on the forums.

    77276: Sea Hag by Pingo

    Here's a fun Bones figure by Julie Guthrie. She is covered with sea life: kelp, barnacles, a small octopus on her left elbow, a starfish on her left calf at the back, and a little crab on her right forearm at the back. She has great lines as a piece of sculpture. WIP threads here and here.
  25. These 2 had not been photographed together before even if they are from the same set. The two were not painted at the same time, and I don't think I realized they even were a set at the time, since the colors and bases are different. I remember being very happy with the horse and the blue horse shroud thing when I painted it 20+ years ago. Grenadier 709 - Mounted Knight with Yeoman
