  1. Dr. Philodendron Arkadius, my mutagen focused Alchemist. I wanted two different forms of the same mini to represent the transformation, and I dig this mini. He had a gun in his hand, and that didn't fit, so I lopped it off and make a potion vial out of green stuff. For the mutagen form, I was channeling Solomon Grundy from DC comics, hence the alabaster skin. I want to do some type of cool base for both, but haven't decided what yet. Might just do cobble stones, with a shattered vial on the ground of the mutagen form, Arkady. Human form! Mutant Form!
  2. So I figured I'd just start a WIP thread, rather than clutter up the forum with unnecessary extras. I hate disorder (although you wouldn't be able to tell that from looking at my workspace! LOL) This week's been mostly working on Gremlins from Malifaux, I have Somer, Slophaulers and Skeeters almost done. Still waiting on flying stand order to come in for Skeeters. Somer's the Bayou Boss, and I have other Bayou Gremlins in my pile of to-be-done but we'll see how long it takes me to get to them. Betrayal at Calth (BAC) is a GW box set of Space Marines that's both a board game and a kind of starter set for Horus Heresy 30k (which takes place before the Warhammer 40k sci fi - just for those who don't follow this). My LGS is doing an escalation league for 30k, and is running a contest for painting the box set. it's about 38 miniatures I think. Really hoping I win, even if I don't play the game because the prize is a free Horus Heresy book of our choice And I love books, even more than I love models so books about models... I'm THERE! Anyway here's my pics (except for the BAC which is still currently in its box lol) ^^ Slophaulers - because they, wait for it, haul slop Just finishing base really on these guys Somer - almost done, working on base now and just need cloth highlighted I think ^^ Skeeters (mosquitos) - trying out colour scheme, pretty much still basecoating although I did highlight their backs, wings and eyes (which still need glaze) Also trying to work on getting more lighting in my room for my light box :( so maybe my pictures will come out better =/ C&C is always welcome :) It helps me get better!
  3. Just finished these tonight - or well almost, as I was taking this pic, I realized I'd forgotten one of the gremlins faces >< sigh - anyway they're not great, but they're done. I had a really hard time lining up the arms with the rifles (they're in 3! pieces) and once I had that done, I didn't realize the head almost didn't fit. Yes, I dryfitted them but wyrd's stuff's a bit... erm weird sometimes. Anyway, they are indeed together, hopefully they'll stay that way once I start playing with them lol.
  4. This was another entry in my year-end Conga Line of minis to finish. My husband gave me this whiskey (barrel) golem because it was made of wood and useful for a steampunk game he's running. This is Malifaux' WYR20603. (Apparently there is a slightly fancier version called the "Nightmare Whiskey Golem" which also has little goblin figures squirming all over it and drinking its leakage in disturbing fashions. I am just fine with this version, thanks.) This is the first polystyrene plastic figure I've ever put together. It was interesting, if fiddly. Here he is next to Reaper's 50016: Rosie, Chronotechnician for scale. Original WIP (from a while ago) here.
  5. I finally had a fairly bright day, so I took final pictures of this miniature which I'd done previously about a month ago, I think. The first one is on the display board I made for my Gremlins. C&C is always welcome! I have a tough time with blending and I'm trying to perfect it. At least on this mini I feel that I got the highlights in the right places lol And I realize there's a terrible mold line especially on the pig :( I just couldn't get it to go away and it's in a very awkward spot for later fixing. Anyway, pics:
  6. Here's a Metal Gamin for Malifaux. Since I'm not very fond of actual models, I've repainted a Dreamblade Runrtagged Brawler to be used as a proxy. I've used Citrine's formula (thank you ). I've just added a final layer of drybrushed 50/50 Ancient Bronze + Vallejo Oily Steel, to get a more desaturated tint. More pics: https://gabbigames.wordpress.com/2015/12/26/metal-gamin/
  7. Apologies in advance as some of these pictures I fear are a bit larger than I'd thought =/ I tried to crop them well enough for this forum but not sure how well I succeeded. These are the pieces I've made this year, pretty much originally for my swamp board, for Warhammer. However, once I started making them I realized it'd be a better idea to actually make them a bit modular, for all RPGs and other wargames (like frostgrave and malifaux). And it makes for a bit easier storage. Most of these pieces were inspired by the local swamps like Okefenokee here in GA. I find all these kind of areas just beautiful and full of so many unique features! These are some basic Ruins. I found using a foamboard for the base was not a great idea, it warped too much unfortunately. Here (below) a Swamp Pond, or bridge to terra firma as I've called it (couple different versions) My mausoleum piece. This is sort of in keeping with the ruins piece. It's meant to sit in a (obviously) drier part of the swamp, while getting inspiration from the swamp for plants etc. I'm working on two other pieces now (only in planning stages) - one is to be a more central piece of swampy land with lots of water areas and maybe(!) solid land parts, the second is going to be a kind of monster bird nesting spot, something like a marsh bird that nests near swamps. I plan on using pine straw (plentiful out here in GA) to make the "nests", something as yet undecided for 'eggs' and I'm looking for suitable figures for the bird monsters. The idea being a dangerous area PCs (or armies, in wargaming) may or may not want to wander into!
  8. This guy is the desperate mercenary from Malifaux, I really like the sculpt but getting the arms to stay in place without pinning was an ordeal;) I stuck pretty close to the color scheme on the blister pack and the base is GS. Please C&C comments are always Welcomed
  9. I have finally completed my Dark Debts crew for Malifaux :) Jakob Lynch and Hungering Darkness The Illuminated A Beckoner and Mr. Graves Looking forward to comments and criticism! More (and larger) pics: https://gabbigames.wordpress.com/2015/11/01/malifaux-neverborn-dark-debts/
  10. Been working on the old metal Kirai crew box and not quite sure what to do next. Needs a spot of some contrasting color, I think, but not sure what or where.
  11. Here are a couple Wyrd minis that I got to paint up just a little while ago. These are both the metal versions of the characters. Wyrd has been switching their line to plastic, and with some very nice results, but it is also nice to go back and paint up the metals ones too. It isn't like Wyrd had a poor range before their move to plastic, you know? In fact, in a few instances, I really miss the old metal versions. Anyway, here they are- the Dead Rider and Governor's proxy
  12. With apologies for another "20" joke. So one day I saw ol' Raphael LaCroix, and I was rather taken with him. A gunslinging goblin! Go figure. My brain started plotting. I ordered me a Raphael when I saw him on sale. Then a while later I saw Ophelia and Rami on sale. I had to have them. Then I saw Pere Ravage. And the gang was about complete. Next session we have (next weekend, knock on wood), my players will be having an old-school showdown straight out of the talkies. A village's children have been kidnapped by savage, but oddly crafty, goblins who've come by guns, not altogether scarce in our world . . . and some fancy duds. Generated them as NPCs using the ARG rules, and they are absolutely freakin' killer. Should be a great and challenging string of encounters for my group. I shot for "simple and done" with these, pretty much. They were a lot of fun, though. First up is Raphael LaCroix, aka Jathan. Leader of the gang, he's the meanest and deadliest 'slinger around. Next is Ophelia, aka Eloise. Nearly as deadly as her lover Jathan, she's also, she'll be quick to tell you, much sexier than he. One is wise to keep an eye on her at all times. Rami LaCroix, aka Dom, is perhaps the least speedy and experienced of his kin. What he lacks in mobility, however, he makes up for with the brutal use of his axe musket (not pictured) as he switches from firing shells to crushing skulls. Finally, Pere Ravage, aka Gibberz. Gibberz morphed around on me, going from modified grenade-slinging gunslinger to alchemist. I think it worked in his favor. The heart and philosophical soul of the gang, Gibberz is an immaculately dressed and crafty foe, using bombs and magic to strike and run. Some say there is another, a mysterious stranger who operates in the shadows to aid the gang . . . but for now this remains only a rumor. Thanks for looking!
  13. Wyrd Games occasionally does gender-swapped versions of characters for their game Malifaux. They use the same rules and for the most part they are pretty awesome. I was struck however when looking at the difference between "Johan" and "Johana" at the size difference (see comparisons here: http://gmortschaotica.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/unboxing-malifaux-johan.html), and thought that a Johana with Johan's proportions would be really cool. First off, is this a reasonable idea? I don't know enough about physiology to tell if I will be able to get the miniature to look like a woman at all, or if the underlying body shape is too different. Malifaux as a game already has a few women (never enough, but certainly >0) with non-standard body shapes so I am not worried about that. If it is possible, what can I do to give the miniature more female aspects? I'm expecting to have to reshape the head and sculpt on breasts, taking direction from Borderlands' Ellie. (http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Ellie) If i'd be better served by sourcing a different head I could do that.
  14. This is the regular Malifaux Whiskey Golem, WYR20603 (not the "Nightmare Whiskey Golem" WYR21015 which has a slightly different pose and extra goblin figures). My husband gave it to me for my birthday as part of a selection of minis which could be used for steampunk. As he said, "It's a wooden robot!" This is the first plastic figure model I've put together, and only the second plastic model. Many thanks to the Reaper forumites who suggested glues to use, as my tube of hardware store Duco Plastic Model Cement was way too gloppy and crude for the fine detail of this model. Thanks to Doug Sundseth and haldir for recommending Tamiya Extra Thin Plastic Cement, which, although terrifying, worked pretty well. This model did not have an assembly diagram. I'm sorry I didn't take a picture of the sprue to accompany this statement, because yikes. Zillions of fiddly bits. Fortunately, I found a diagram online for the related "Nightmare Whiskey Golem", which is close enough to work for this one as well. Between that and the render of the model on the back of the box, I could suss out how to do it, starting with the extremities and working my way in to the main body. The Tamiya thin glue comes in a little glass jar with a tiny applicator brush, perfect for detailed little models like this one but probably frustrating for people who need to apply it to large surfaces. The glue is so toxic I assembled the model outside and I wore a NIOSH respirator (and of course gloves) while assembling it. The one thing I left off was a little stack of mugs meant to hang off the peg on the upper left barrel on its shoulders. They were a little fussy and I wanted to emphasize the woodenness, not the whiskeyness of the figure. This means that I now have a spare little line of tiny mugs. Maybe I'll add it to a bartender mini ...
  15. Here's Angelica- one of the Showgirls of Malifaux.
  16. Here are some Guild minis that I painted up just a little while ago. I really felt that the skin tones should vary among the crew, and here are the results:
  17. So I've been given some hard plastic models, styrene, I think. They come in grey hard plastic and mostly on rectangular sprues anyway. One is Malifaux's "Whiskey Golem" (or, as my husband said, a wooden steampunk robot), one is Perry Miniatures "Medieval Cottage 1300-1700," and one is a set of Pegasus Hobbies "Gothic City Building Small Set #1." The Gothic Building set snaps together but the makers recommend glue for some delicate parts. The other two must be glued. Can I ask what glues people recommend for this sort of model? I gather there is some sort of special plastic solvent glue for plastic models, but I haven't really played around with it. My children used superglue on their Games Workshop plastic armies because, apart from that one incident of setting the cotton opera glove on fire, they could safely use it. What I have at the moment are several types of superglue and epoxy. Looking at the cottage, I am concerned about whether the model will hold together. It's basically just flat walls glued together at the edges. The structural engineer in me itches to put interior corner reinforcement and braces inside. Is this overkill? Will the proper glue help its integrity? I also note that two of the kits contain nothing in the way of assembly diagrams or instuctions. Should I take this as a given in hard plastic models and treat them as a sort of IQ test?
  18. The mini is named sue so I figure it's from the song, much happier with this over the last mini. Used a new backdrop and a second light. The base is probably temporary but I am very happy with my glazing on this, tho still far from perfect. Please C&C ;)
  19. Soooo this guy has to previous attempts made on it and both ended up in a jar of pinesol, for some reason this miniature gives me problems and I am still not completely happy with him but he is off my desk now. The yellow coat in particular was a real pain. He will be an NPC in a shadowrun campaign representing a self appointed wasteland peacekeeper. As a side not he reminds me of billy Connelly in the second boondock saints movie. C&C away and don't hold back ;)
  20. I finished of the Ice Golem and Ice Gamin from the Malifaux Children of December Crew. I still have to tackle Rasputina and the Wendigo. I am pretty happy with the paint except for a few spots where the wash dried funny on the Golem. The snowy basing material I used didn't turn out the way I had hoped. It seems a little thin and grainy to me. It also gets EVERYWHERE. I tried to keep it off the rim of the bases for the pics but it was a losing battle. Maybe next time I will put some fine ballast on before applying the snow, or just use the ballast and paint it. Anyone have any suggestions on snow bases? C&C is appreciated, thanks. WIP Thread Ice Golem Some more views of the golem: Ice Gamin
  21. Just a couple of creepy minis I've been working on between other things (Rope guy was painted up a couple of months ago, Wire guy last week). Didn't put too much time or effort into either of them, but I think they turned out really good. Comments and criticisms are, as always, most appreciated.
  22. I had originally started painting a chibi wizard for the Resolutionary Painting challenge. He is turning out better than I expected so I want to spend extra time on him and do some extra shading and highlighting. Due to the month being super effeicient at taking up my free time I don't think I will be able to finish him and 3 others to keep up with the challenge so I am going to put him off for a while. Instead I am going to paint up the Ice Golem and Ice Gamins from the Children of December crew I bought a couple years ago. They should be easier (famous last words!) to finish by the end of the month. Here is what I have got so far. The colors I am using are: Basecoat - 29814 - Ice Blue Shade/Wash - Citadel Drakenhof Nightshade Highlights will be 09021 - Snow Shadow and 09063 - Ghost White The gamin already have the wash applied. The golem still needs the basecoat finished.
  23. So this was an interesting little project that I worked on this month. it really drove me insane with some of the details. Even had to break out some new brushes. used some size 10 brushes, the bigger 1 and 0 brushes that I usually use simply would not work here. I am mostly loving the details that i was able to bring out. The only one that really gave me a headache though was baby kade. he came in three parts and none of those parts were keyed very well so the glue wouldnt hold him together. It required a couple of strategic pins. one for his head/tophat and the other for his arm holding the dollie. overall i really do love the models and the way that the paints came out. do wish though that i could have put a little more time in to getting a better effect on candy's face, but it is decent enough for now.
  24. First off, the title is a result of currently rewatching Chuck, one of my favorite TV shows. What this is, is a work in progress of the projects I have planned for the next two months. Let's just say, I think I am insane. I have 5 for ReaperCon, 2 commissions for friends, and if I have time 2 for me. So without further ado, let me introduce my victims. First up the lovely Tinley. This beauty has been slightly modified and will be my entry in the open category for ReaperCon. I am pretty happy with her as this is the first time I have done any modifications. Next up are two ladies for the painters category. Dark Sword's Steam Punk Babe will be painted up as a Sci Fi Babe, using the stock photo for the Star Wars the Old Republic female smuggler as inspiration. Representing Reaper, we have Betty the Space Heroine and her little friend. If it looks like I have the time, my last entry will be a diorama staring the Queen of High Elves and Praying Paladin in a castle room. The commissions are for two friends from my gaming group. They are a web exclusive Space Marine from GW and Nicodem from Malifaux. Luckily the guys do not have a deadline and told me just to take my time. Lastly we have Rhaine from Reaper, who will serve as my next PC, and Magda, who I have wanted to start since I got her. But you did not come here to read text, so is the line-up all prepped and primed. The paladin has not been primed as I have been having issues with attaching his arm.
