This will be yet another Undead /Demon Army. ( what can I say? I love evil miniatures). This army has an Asian theme. Undead Samurai Oni Asian Dragons Some living Asian Allies. Kirin Hope you will enjoy it. I created a background story for it, it is on page 2. Have fun reading! I will paint slowly and it may take a while, but I'm putting this out here to start. Since I backed Zentih's Kensei Undead KS I have a few of the Undead Samurai and Demons waiting I also have the Grenadier Wind Dragon ( alas without the two humans) and the Grenadier Imperial Dragon of the Eleven Celestial Dynasties And some Living Samurai. Also a nice Asian Graveyard Set. Some stuff that has to get painted soon..
Horned Snow Hunter 61004
Samedi posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingFrom Reaper's "Exalted"-line: The horned snow hunter. Well, I know a Qi-Lin when I see one, so I painted him up as such. Unfortunately, the water clouded up. Shouldn't have used super glue and water effects together. Adding the tufts before the pour didn't help, either. Apart from that I'm not too unhappy with the result. C&C very welcome.

Dark Sword Standing Kirin and a few foxes
Marsya posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingWorking on finishing up some minis for July, during the 24 hour challenge I managed to paint a few hours each day and finished up my Kirin. The foxes pictured here have since made it to their new base but rather than make a separate thread I figured I could sneak them onto this one to count for the RPChallenge until I get the rest of the piece finished. I decided to have some fun with my Kirin and go for a bit unnatural color scheme, I haven't quite decided if I like it or not but its starting to grow on me. I may revisit his base as I hurried through it and it shows, but for now I am checking him off as complete. And for now a quick picture of my foxes.
Here is another piece I took to ReaperCon. I entered her into the open category and to my surprise earned me a gold medal. Then I was speechless when she was given the Dark Sword Best in Show Manufacturer Award. There were so many beautiful Dark Sword entries at the show and I am honored that she was selected. I quite enjoyed working on this piece and I must Thank everyone who gave me feedback in the group thread http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/58747-groupopen-dsm-wips-stephanie-law-masterworks/page-12?hl=%20stephanie%20%20law as there were a few times with her that I needed the inspiration from all of you to continue painting. Here are a few of my completed photos. This one shows the Kirin in focus better I love painting Dark Sword Miniatures and plan on finishing up a few more of the Stephanie Law miniatures soon. Again Thank you to everyone who helped me push this piece in the WIP thread and also gave me inspiration. ReaperCon was awesome (I know I said this already in other threads, but I can't help myself) and I enjoyed meeting everyone.
Dark Sword Kirin DSM1615 Stephanie Law Masterworks
Marsya posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingHere is my version of the new Dark Sword Kirin miniature sculpted by the talented Patrick Keith. Luckily as part of the Kickstarter we received two of the sitting Kirin, since one is going to be part of Erato's display base I opted to use one as practice. Here is a photo of both of them before basing side by side. Even though the first one was to help me decide on colors and to test fit on the base, I went ahead and continued playing with new things and placed him on one of my new Bones II bases upside down to allow me to try my new Vallejo Water Effects and Gray Pumice. I am hoping with time the water effects will dry more clear this photo was taken almost 24 hours after application and you can only begin to see the paint on the bottom peeking through. For now I am thinking I prefer my Woodland Scenics Realistic Water and will use the Vallejo Water Effects for things like icicles and water falls. Here he is ready to hit the game table if the need arises for a Kirin mini. And lastly a close up of my second Kirin, once I get a bit more finished he will be secured on his new base with Erato. I am counting these as two for the RPChallenge this month which means I am halfway to meeting my goal of 4. For those interested in the colors used I stayed with all Reaper Paints on these two with a fairly limited palette. The only colors on them are Highlands Moss, Pale Lichen, Burgundy Wine, the Blonde Hair Triad and Pure white. I based coated them in Highlands Moss, shaded with Burgundy Wine, highlighted with Pale Lichen and the highest points are Blonde Highlight. Their manes are the blonde hair triad shaded with Burgundy Wine. And gems were Burgundy Wine mixed with blonde hair highlight in a few steps. Pure white was used as reflection points on the gems, eyes, scales and horn. Once I place the second one on his base I may revisit the highlights if needed so any C&C on him is appreciated. Thank you for everyone in the Group WIP thread for the motivation to get these completed.
Another mini completed for February. This is a mini I have been intending to paint since the new year for a friend's character and have procrastinated getting him done. So finally I sat down and put some paint to him. I present to you Gaius the Half Elf Rogue of Cel'Romus. As I am working on completing more minis I tried to strike a balance of making him look good for the tabletop while not putting in so much time that I wince every time one of our players knock him prone or sweep him to the side of the table among a group of minis. Overall I am happy with him and since he will be making his debut on the game table tomorrow I hope my gaming group likes him too.
