  1. I've been looking to do a WIP for a while now but couldn't quite think what to do. So, after going through my collection of oldies, I decided to give this a crack: This was an old set of D&D Dungeon Adventurers by Citadel Miniatures & contained 8 character class minis plus a treasure chest. I started painting these many, many, many years ago but didn't get very far & never quite finished, as this pic shows....... also, whilst rummaging through my oldies, I found the partner set: which contains these D&D Monsters: and they go together, so I
  2. I painted this around 9 months to a year ago and am just now getting up the courage to start posting some of my minis. This one I'm pretty proud of. My photography skills on the other hand could use some work.
  3. Latest addition to the family. Still waiting for my 60mm bases.:
  4. I ordered the Mars attacks game the other day and got it this morning I couldn't resist painting this model I really hope you guys like it I have a few more models to list this week as I paint most days! So here he is Flea Rider!!
  5. You scroll far enough back into Reapers vaults and there are still some amazing finds. Bakarathi were a race of demons / aliens or undead? Unique to reaper. This thing hunted them I guess. It was released back in 2005. anyone know anything else about it? It looks way better than they did. I painted it up as some kind of plant based ogre, a reaction by the natural world against invasions. It was supposed to be usable in Frosthaven games, but I am not sure if it can be, maybe a wandering encounter? I sent this off to wolfie907, and confirmed that he got it yesterday. I
  6. Where to begin... I bought an airbrush to paint this guy, I base coated the base but when I went to base coat the monster the air gun was clogged. I cleaned it, still didn't work. I took it apart and cleaned it, still didn't work. It will only spray water and occasionally a glob of paint. I thinned my paints, I cleaned the thing a million times. Still doesn't work!. So I have up for a while. Finally I decided to just paint it by hand. What a paint THAT was! Just trying to hold this guy constantly takes paint off I already put on. GRRRR. Anyway, I check the internet to see how other people p
  7. Over the last 6 months, I've been working on a lengthy project to get a couple of old classic Citadel official D&D mini sets from the 1980's painted up & now, I've finally finished! Thanks to all who viewed, commented, encouraged & supported me along the way. The WIP can be found here. There's two sets, one of Dungeon Adventurers & one of Dungeon Monsters, here's the pics: Encounter shot: Adventurers group shot: Monsters group shot: Elf, Dwarf & Elf: Magic-User, Treasure Chest & Cleric:
  8. Got this guy painted up last night. Gonna be tossing out one or two of these guys in my game Friday night. Slowly but surely I'll be using mostly Reaper minis for D&D rather than the prepainted WotC stuff.
  9. This is the Bones owlbear. I was pretty happy with the way it turned out, although I think I would lighten the 'owl' portions a bit if I were to paint another.
  10. This is another fishy Tiik monster, this one Reaper's 77212, Tiik Baron. He was part of my year-end Conga Line of Finishing Up Half-Done Minis. There is an old WIP here. I was never quite able to make out what the thing on his left gills I painted red was. I think it might be a hermit crab in a shell. Earlier cousin Tiik figures here and here.
  11. I honestly can't remember where I got this, or who made it, so if you know please let me know. This is a quick speed paint/experiment. Other than primer, I did the whole thing with a succession of different washes, inks, and a little bit of drybrushing until it looked sufficiently grungy and disgusting. I think it took me about 2 hours all together. C&C is always welcome.
  12. I ended up with two of this fellow, and I wanted to make each distinct, so I did a little work on them before the painting started. On one I trimmed some of the spikes off of his shield (which now looks like it would make a great offhand weapon!) For the other I trimmed most of the spikes off of his club, then carved some simple wood grain into it. It wasn't a major conversion, but it was enough to give them each a different look.
  13. Hi folks, This is my take on the Reaper Bones Marsh Troll from the second Kickstarter. I used him as Trepsin the Troll in my Tyranny of Dragons D&D campaign. C&C welcome, more pictures can be found on my painting blog.
  14. Please excuse the bent halberd. It was a little off when I took the pics and of course I didn't notice at the time.
  15. I tried to use a quick-rigged photo setup for these. Hopefully these look better than my Goldar pics. Also I tried something different on the mini. I used a coat of brown liner as a base coat after having seen discussion about it, then dry brushed up from there. Not sure how I feel about it.
  16. Another week, another survivor that I don't know the name of. (Fluff, who reads it?) For the second female I attempted to conquer the Scale75 Arabic Shadow. Of the paints in the flesh set, it is the one that I find kind of odd. While it's worked ok as a minor component of darker mixes it just doesn't look right next to any of the other colors, especially the lighter ones. In order to get my shadows and highlights to play well together, I tried to make sure that each mix was at least a quarter Arabic Shadow. After many mixes and much layering I've decided that you can get a decent skin ou
  17. This guy took a while and is probably over the top for a gaming mini, but I present Zachary of the First Story of Kingdom Death: Monster! Flesh tones are basically what I used for Rollo last winter. Golden Highlight, Tanned Skin, Redstone Highlight, Russet Brown. I subbed in VGC Ivory for Linen White. I added Muddy Soil to deepen the shadows and create some definition in them. The cloth is basically Alien Flesh shaded with P3 Coal Black and tinted with glazes of Camo Green. Highlights mixed in Ivory and I deepened the shadows, mixing Walnut Brown into the Coal Black.
  18. Once again its Sunday night, which means it's time to snap some pics of another Kingdom Death Survivor. When I started these I wasn't really planning on painting one per week, but if I keep it up that would be 52 minis/year. I would be happy with that. This time it's a female survivor, whose name I do not know but I'm sure Cash does. For this survivor I decided to try out a few paints from the Scale75 Blood and Fire set that I hadn't used yet. Her dress was basecoated in Fuchsia and shaded with Sunset Purple. To get some more practice with extreme highlighting I took some parts up to
  19. I should start looking these survivor's names up so I have something to call them. Anyway over the weekend I painted the other male starting survivor from the game box. I did some experimenting with the shadow portion of the Scale75 flesh set to try and make a more realistic African skin tone that I had done with my fire giant. I don't know anyone with dreads so I attempted so googling to get a better idea of how the highlights work. In the end I still just made it up. Like the last one, he's not sealed yet so I can use these pics to see if anything needs a touch-up first. ... and I s
  20. My first KD:M mini has reached the almost complete stage so it's time to take some dual purpose pics! These are part show-off, part see if there's anything I want to touch-up before sealing images. Honestly I can see plenty that would need work if these KD minis were destined for anything higher than the tabletop, but they are instead on a collision course with greasy pizza fingers. For those that didn't see my posts in the assembly thread, I decided to attempt a cold light on white stones. To keep with that idea I attempted a blue light in the lantern. I initially painted his cloth whi
  21. Frost Wyrm Sculpted by Kevin Williams I got Auberon for the exchange. I decided to go a different direction for this than the name would suggest, "frost." The "spots" are GW:brown (that I can't remember the name of right now) with upper highlights using Pearl White (a metallic paint) then a a glaze of a Vallejo Orange and a re-highlight of the Pearl white. The eyes are ALL metallic's and the base is from the Michael's Arts and Craft. Wood rounds. I used Reaper Ginger bread paint for the base, washed it and dry brushed it. All in all I think it turned out well. For my firs
  22. This is the first of two little predatory underwater plant-creatures sculpted by Patrick Keith. I had originally planned to paint them like kelp, but I think they turned out more like bok choy. Such is life in the vegetable kingdom. Their faces are really that featureless, with nothing but eerie eyespots. This one is 92691, which has a single skull on its base. WIP thread here. Second Kelpie photos to follow shortly.
  23. Kingdom Death: Monster is finally making its way into the hands of backers. I’ve had a chance to play it, and I can say that the game, and game pieces are quite good. It is gritty, tough and each time your tiny colony survives a nemesis, you feel a real sense of accomplishment. Now, while I don’t have any of the new minis from the game painted up, I do have one of Kingdom Death’s resin figures done. Here is the “Chosen.†While he does not yet have any rules, reading over the fluff blurb on him, I’m pretty sure that he’ll make it into a Kingdom Death expansion sometime (pr
  24. So here he is so far. He's being made for my daughter, so his name will probably end up being, Buckbeak... And that's okay. But I'm painting it in more of a golden eagle and bay color scheme, rather than the gray. I tried a dusky white/gray scheme first, but the sculpt didn't lend itself to those colors... I couldn't for the land find a satisfactory, unpainted hippogryph, so I used Starmane, Unicorn (02151) and Griffon (77157)--both lovely sculpts by Sandra Garrity. Took a little wiring to make it solid and to act as a skeleton for first plumber's epoxy, then greenstuff. The base is
  25. These are two turtle warriors from the Bones II Kickstarter. I glued them to fender washers for weight and balance before painting them. The color palette is more muddy and earthy than normal for me. I wanted to make them look like alligator snapping turtles, the terror of my youth. One of them has a greener shell because that's a natural variation. The turtle shell shield is painted like an Eastern Box Turtle, an inoffensive little North American forest-dwelling turtle.
