  1. Hello again, As previously explained in the WIP thread (here) this piece has been my stage for many firsts and learning experiments. Firstly I tried to make a lava base for the first time and found out that I certainly could have gone with more texture to give the impression of flowing lava.. Then I tried to do some OSL, where light of the lava is reflected on the base where Tiviel stands. Finally I tried to do NMM on he blades which eluded me and it kinda still does but I wowed to work on it on a more suitable blade in the near future.
  2. I guess this qualifies for presentation? Just some cheap prepainted dragon toys on 50mm x 100mm pill bases. Lava base for the Red Dragon ( MojoFun 387214 ) and a ruins base with checker tiles for the Steel Dragon ( MojoFun 387215 ). EDIT: ARGH! Title is supposed to be PREPAINTED, not repainted. The figure's paintjobs are the sweatshop originals.
  3. Hello all, This is my first time in WIP area therefore I am rather excited Secondly I will be trying many new stuff and therefore truly in terra incognita here So, here goes nothing: I started with the base since I want a lava base and I want the rocky surface I will place my mini to reflect light coming from the lava. I chose Vallejo Black Lava for my lava surface but regretted afterwards since I want still molten lava not cooled off lava that is more suitable for Black Lava.. However this is all I have and my local store is out of stuff like white/grey pumice :(
  4. One of my players is playing a Fire Genasi wizard specializing in fire. He wanted a mini with burning hair. I couldn't quite find the perfect fit, but since Aaron from Bones II was summoning some fire he seemed like a decent surrogate. It's a really nice mini, I didn't even notice the three faces in the flames until I had already decided to paint him. I broke the flame motif to paint up eyes and teeth so the faces would be more noticeable. They still are a little subtle but noticeable. I finished him, but was unsure how to base him.

  5. Couple more demons for my Wrath of the Righteous campaign. This time its a succubus and the innocent new girl in town, Mary Lith. Bases are chaos bases from a recent CMON kickstarter. The marilith is based on a coral snake pattern and the succubus is based on a naked chick. Thanks! Thanks to carnacki for filling me in on the nudity policy which i should have read. The Following links contain nudity (though I dont know why a shirtless man is less offensive than a shirtless woman) Succubus http://i61.tinypic.com/142zdoh.jpg http://i62.tinypic.com/okd8vo.jpg http://tinypic.com/m/j5d
  6. So about 2 years or so ago I decided to get back into miniature painting after about 20 years. I had no idea how things had progressed so I went to the LFGS to look around. This is where I first discovered reaper miniaturesand as I looked at the awesome metal sculpts on display I noticed these white plastics called bones so I picked up one bones and a few metals and left. Now the bones stayed in its blister for several months and when I finally opened it I glued it then it sat on a shelf until now. Havin got into the KS 3 I figured I better paint my one Nd only bones so here goes ;) An
  7. I had lots of fun coming up with this one. Putting on the modeling paste to make the lava as if it was flowing was a challenge: first time working with that medium. Took me a while to be happy with the lava color. I am happy with the results.
  8. This was one of my Secret Sophie gifts. I've decided to paint him up like a magma sub-species. They dwell within lava and volcanoes, and freely burrow and swim through the magma without harm to themselves he's far from finished, going to add some more black along the spine for sure
  9. Hi ! My last Dark Sword mini :)... The close up is very violent :(
  10. A Pathfinder Red Dragon I "speedpainted" sometime in mid-to-late 2014. My wife and I took Wappel's Shaded Basecoating class at Reapercon last year and I've been trying to familiarize myself with the style since I am somewhat impatient and don't like spending 20 or 30 hours on a single mini. This was one of the pieces I applied the technique to. It took me about three and a half hours, two of which involved repeatedly trying to make his stomach not look like complete and utter crap. The premise is a pretty simple one--Wappel advises starting dark and working light, but the rationale is that
  11. And here is the final product of my first WIP thread. For me this one was a real challenge. This mini started its painted life as a live paint session mini on Google Hangout (can we do that again?) with a few folks from the Reaper forums. I wanted a dragon that looked like it was rising from the lava itself and cooling to its new form. In a lot of ways, this dragon was perfect for that, lots of depth to the scales and skin to allow for much color change in the skin. this also meant a lot of crevices to be taken of and a lot of blending work. Most of the scales required 4 colors and 2 was
  12. Well since I started taking pictures during the 24 hour paint event, I thought I would go forward with a work in progress and show my steps towards completing this experiment The objective here is to produce a dragon that looks like its cooling on the outside and slowly going to a dark red or grey while the core of the dragon is bright molten yellow and orange. the concept is from the base of my geiger deep dragon. Those of you who were involved or have seen these pictures in the 24 hour painting thread, can skip the first three pics as they are reposts. First basecoat is Minis pai
  13. Got 2 of this action figure and am working on bases for them. I want to have them on 3" bases, but that's kinda tricky since the toy has a wide stance to rival that old Grenadier frost giant. So the first one will be on an angle. Some styrofoam rocks and sand for the lava. I didn't get pics of all the steps but it's the "Hot Lava Bases" method by Mark Craggs 'Klute' on CMoN. While I like most of the paint enough to leave it Factory, I tore the head off the fig and will try to make the beard look fiery. Second one will be on a level, but more elevated base.
  14. One of my first painted miniatures, done up as my magma dragon Cypheros. I could probably do better now, and have been tempted to repaint him
  15. After a long break from painting minis, I got back to the workbench early this month. I've completed 3, just to shake the rust off my already weak skills. Encouraged by making some progress and starting to enjoy painting again, I started work on Carinth, a Reaper Dark Elf sitting incomplete for a couple of years. She was originally intended for a contest entry, but now I'd just like to figure out the lighting challenges, experiment with this two-model method, learn some new things and generally improve. The 'two model method' is an idea that has been around for a while, but given the cost
  16. I had a tough time taking photos of the Dragon. He is more of a grey color. I used Reapers Polished bone and washed him in a mix of that and black. First attempt at lava and I am happy with it. Hope you enjoy. :) EDIT : So, this was one of my 1st paints since I was around 8 years old and I completed and posted it earlier this year. Yeah, I chose a Giant Skeleton Dragon (mostly because of my love for the cover art for The Pillars of Pentegarn) The Lava Police subsequently came after me and it was upsetting at the time because I was so proud of my lava. A few months of looking at it
  17. and my latest 'not a failure,so it must be a success' As always, feedback is much appreciated. You see anything you think I can improve on, please let me know.
  18. Lava Worm!! Having been inspired by all of the BONES Worms lately I devised a number of variations and decided on two of them (outside of the traditional Purple Worm). The first you see below. I would very much like to give thanks to MonkeySloth for sharing with us the DISTRESS Crackle Paint. You can check out his tutorial on Ice Bases here.
