  1. My first two miniatures of the new year. True to form I set a few goals for the year and then pick a few miniatures with no real connection to them. Oh well... I picked these because they seemed as they where going to be a quick finish (and they were) and I mostly just wanted to be able to say that my unpainted pool is shrinking :)
  2. My sea monster from Uncharted Seas. Green stuff froth on the flippers and around him, and free hand detail on the waves to make it look choppier
  3. "The focus of many a cautionary travellers tale, Nightmare Rams are said to inhabit the wild, lonely parts of the world. Appearing before lost travellers to offer their services as a guide, those who are foolish enough to accept their help are led deeper into the wilderness, never to be seen again. Occasionally, someone will seek out the truth behind these tales. Those who are unlucky to uncover the truth, and lack the strength to resist the strong hypnotic powers the Nightmare Rams possess, soon curse their curiosity, as they are swallowed whole and slowly become one with the Ram, their mind
  4. I finally got to painting my Bones Orc Berserker, by Tre Manor. It was one of the first Bones I purchased, an awesome sculpt. I didn't get him nearly as green as has been my tendency with previous orcs. Was aiming for some more bluish black. In other news, my first use of a Secret Weapon wash is here: I used Baby Poop (lol) on the dark armor. Again, having trouble with the photos. I went back and took the last couple shots here after; I think maybe they give a better representation of how he looks in person. Thanks for looking. Comments and criticism are very welcome. Stil
  5. I painted up an old Ral Partha troll, from their AD&D Monsters line. Love love love this sculpt of an old-school D&D foe I loved loved loved. I aimed for gross (and maybe a little radioactive) with him. Didn't do a whole lot, really--basecoated and applied a couple different washes (more SW; Algae and Green Black or whatnot) and sparely highlighted. Thanks for looking. Comments and criticism are very welcome!
  6. Hey, folks. Picked up some kobolds for the PF game I'm running, and I finally got them painted. These are the metal set of four, by Ben Siens, from the Dark Heaven line. I'm afraid my photos are letting me down even more than my painting skills. I haven't figured out my setup, yet. I was really proud of how I highlighted these guys with orange highlights--I'm still working to eschew the too-white highlights and all--but they're washing pretty well in these pictures. Everything I'm trying lately tends to be either too light or too dark. Hopefully some of it's getting through, though.
  7. Finally--FINALLY--finished the Goblin War Band on which I started a month and a half ago, before we moved. Reaper stuff, sculpted by Ben Siens. These are sculpts I really love--I've got some PF goblins headed my way, and they're cool, but I really dig the more traditional take. Or, at least, that seems more traditional to me, anyway. I likes 'em. I don't know how well these are going to show, but I feel like I had some measure of success with these. I didn't over-highlight, at least not with the super-whitened green like I did with the orcs, while back. I used the same home-mixed green for
  8. Hey all! Second post in a night. Whoo! Okay, well Vanja was my first mini ever, and I've decided I'd like to post my 2nd and 3rd attempts at mini-painting. These are both non-reaper, to my knowledge. They were purchased from the $1 "Box of Misfit Minis" from my local comic store, so I decided to rescue them in an attempt to give them new life. As I mentioned in my previous topic, I use Amsterdam acrylics (red, yellow, blue, black, white) and mix them. I also have a few metallic craft paints that I use as well (and in the case of the blue dude, I used a bit of nail polish, too.) As alw
  9. So, GenCon is upon us once more and I'm going. As usual, I have been asked to Repaint a few D&D Minis for DDM Guild events there. So, I present my PlastiCrack Prize Support! A fairly simple Repaint of the Large Gold Dragon. Was the first done so it got a bit of dust on it. I have cleaned that up now. The Horned Devil was originally a dull Gray and black. I've fixed that! Also, added a bit of Freehand work making Tattoos on his Wings and Tail. The Gorgon was completely Steel colored for the stock paint job. I changed that quickly! Used Gamma Shielding Go
  10. Started something new today, C'thulhu:- His head hasn't been attached yet (for easy tentacle painting), the rest is all glued together. So far I've just been working on the flesh basecoat (a 1:1 mix of Vallejo Dwarf Skin/Vallejo Violet Red), its going to need a couple more layers though. It would also help if I could keep each batch of basecoat mixed consistently!
  11. This weekend I got into a painting mood and finished several pieces, a great worm and a stone golem, and started several skeletons, ghouls, and golems. I started this one and the Banshee last year and wanted to try something different. I started out with a white wash base coat from Apple Barrel white and Reaper's flow improver, took two layers to get a good coverage. I then washed it with GW's Thrakka Green and proceeded to leave them for months. This weekend I finshed this one. I did a heavy drybrush of Meadow Green to knock down some of the green glossyness. For a different spect
  12. One of a dozen bones I'm working on at the moment. For this stone golem I decided to try a semi precious stone look, rose quartz. The helmet, bracers, and skirt I tried for a dark granite/slate color. All of the bones I paint right now I just go for table top quality and try to hit the right look from a few feet away rather then a few inches. Edited: Cropped to get the pics rotated right.
  13. My three year son wanted to help me paint my bones. So I gave him the great worm and some blue paint. I figured if it turns out bad I'd just strip it. Well after looking at it, it reminded me of some random blue/orange creature but I don't recall where. So some oranges, yellows, and a red wash later, oh and for giggles alien goo green for the mouth, here it is. It's not really visible in the photos but I spotted some dirt brown around the base and along the side ridges to try and replicate coming out of the ground.
  14. Reaper's version of a D&D Cloaker from what it looks like to me. One of my favorite cave/dungeon monsters. I messed up on his back, I had a nice blend from dark to very light at first and I won't go into the whole story, but it was either start over or try to cover it up by painting over it and making it darker. Anywhoo, I like to think the thing blends into the ground until some unsuspecting adventurer gets too close, possibly even stepping on the thing, and then.....no more adventurer Tsk, Tsk...You should always have a spotter while summoning.
  15. Hiya everyone, Here's a sculpt I've been working on for some time. I finally got to finish it. Tell me what you think: It will be put into production, and resin copies will be available from a UK based company. I'll announce which, when they allow me to :)
  16. These are pretty cool. The artist, Santani, used different types of doll plastic like fimo, cernit, sculpey, sonet and then fabric fur. http://santani.deviantart.com/gallery/ Santani says they might get an Etsy shop or head to eBay to sell these. I might have to get one of these for my daughter when and if she starts selling to the States.
  17. Finished just in time for Halloween! This fella was painted in a similar manner to the Bones zombie I did earlier, drybrushing and inks/glazes for the most part. Adding a red glaze to the stitches was something of a last minute idea, but I like what it added to the figure. Also, more people should paint this guy up and post in the inspiration gallery. There's no pics of him! I got an extra set of golems in the KS, so I think I might convert the other one into some kind of sci-fi atomic monster, an atomic superman with an octagonal shaped body that sucks blood... Ahem. C&C welcom
  18. This guy, like the Purple Worms I shared recently, was a Bones figure I picked up before the Kickstarter campaign who spent most of the last year part-painted until I finally finished him properly more recently. The “learning experience” with this guy was to practice blending from unnatural skin tones (ie, the green) to more natural ones (the flesh). I saw some fine work done in this manner on Citadel Dragon Ogres many years ago, and it’s also been used to some extent on the Games Workshop LotR trolls – which is one of the places this guy can do duty, along with Pathfinder and even wargames li
  19. When painting the “Iron” Golem, I wanted to play with warm metallics (copper, bronze) and verdigris, so I happily disregarded the “Iron” portion of the model. Much of the model was actually fun to work with. I utilised a lot of heavy drybrushing that worked well on the model to bring out all the slight imperfections of the cast, and helped to create a bit of a pitted, cast-metal look, which was perfect for my ends. The rear shot of the left forearm shows it pretty well. While I’m not especially happy with the way the sword blade turned out, being a cheap Bones model, I’m happy to cal
  20. I bought this pair of Pre-KS Bones over a year ago, but they got put to one side for most of that time when I had to pack up to move, then move, and unpack and so forth. Recently I finished them, and finally we had some decent light, so today they got photographed. There's a bit of mould line that I missed on one of them. Noticed it when it was too late, and I didn't want to butcher my paint in order to fix it. You barely notice in person, anyway. I used some Woodland Scenics Water Effects to create the beginning of the "drool", some WC Realistic W
  21. here´s one picture unpainted
  22. Here it is the finished ten-foot-tall Myconid Cephalopod. This strange critter lies in wait luring unsuspecting underground miners or adventurers close with its seemingly harmless glowing cap and then using both of its ten-foot-long tentacles it will rend you in half. Wish I had lighting to make give this an underground look but here are the shots. These are pre-Dullcote pics. I sealed the cap except for the spots to make it a little off. I also sealed the stalagmite and growths its perched on so it looks wet. Once I Dullcote it, I will likely add a bit of gloss varnish back to tho
  23. Designed by Larry Elmore, sculpted by Jeff Grace. I spotted it in a game store and thought it was way more interesting than the pure eye candy mermaids. I was concerned about the flimsiness of the join between arms and arm sockets, so I pinned them. With very. Tiny. Wires. The arms were mighty thin to begin with. I may have left the pinning wires a bit long, making her upper arms a bit long. I deliberately didn't give her pupils. I wanted her to have preternatural, milky nonhuman eyes. I figured mermaids would not have easy access to metal, so I painted her armor and weapon as if
  24. This guy was mostly done, but I got the base finished off this weekend. And here he is with his bendy friend: It's a bit hard to get the camera to focus on both of them very well. I've got two more Bones trolls to paint up, so if you've got any C&C then let me have it!
  25. Got this idea for a game based upon building monsters. Now, there is not enough of it yet to even try out a game, but there are a few things I would like some help with. One is a company to make the miniatures. Now, Reaper is a great company for miniatures, I think we can all agree, but I was looking to do more interchangeable parts for the monsters that get built instead of having the monsters be built once and that is it. Sorta like those toys that come with multiple hands so you can switch out whether their hand is holding something or is open. I was planning on the monster building bei
