  1. Etherfields has some strange miniatures concepts. I wanted to embrace the dreamlike quality of them all by giving them a unified mood. So all of these minis use purple shadows and pale green highlighting.
  2. 2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others. A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done. I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color. He goes out in the mail on Monday Hope you like him too...
  3. This is Reaper's 59009: Mad Scientist, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. I thank Reaper for proffering Victorian Science Ladies in Big Dresses, and I am looking forward to painting her up. I am, as usual, working with Golden matte fluid acrylic paints. This is my standard priming, a thin wash of thinned-down Titanium White allowed to dry for a day then washed further with thinned-down Burnt Umber. I don't know if I've mentioned, but this is a classic Italian Renaissance priming technique. I can't remember the term, but it translates as "veil" of color and is supposed to give richness to
  4. So I realized I only had one painted dwarf (!) when one of my GMs asked me if I had anything for the Jadeborn, a race in Exalted that is roughly equivalent to dwarves except for the 0.001% who are roughly equivalent to elves. And they are also sort of stone golems. Based on jade. I thought Reaper's 60184: Meyanda, Android Priestess, sculpted by Bobby Jackson, would do well for one of the elfy artisan Jadeborn and I pulled out a random assortment of seven (because of course) dwarves for the worker and warrior Jadeborn. All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Col
  5. So, I'm a part of a Bi-Monthly Twitter Secret Santa'like Exchange called #BoxofManyThings! I'm doing Miniatures for both of the organizers of it and this is one of them. The individual in question goes by the Handle, owlbare on twitter and uses a Purple Owlbear as his Avatar. So I chose to do up a Cute little Owlbear for him in his signature Colors. These are actually his photos since I forgot to take any! Anywho, hope you enjoy:) GF
  6. Greetings! Presenting a favourite mini of mine, painted a few years back but not shown until now - Forgeworld's Warpfire Dragon. Thanks for looking!
  7. I speed-painted these over two afternoons to be a party of NPC adventurers for an eclectic mash-up of Exalted and the World of Darkness. They are 77322, Kassandra of the Blade (sculpted by Werner Klocke); 77405, Aeris, Female Elf Ranger (sculpted by Julie Guthrie); as-yet unnumbered Mythos figures based on 50032: Jake Ryan, Hero Explorer (sculpted by Bobby Jackson) and the Victorian Lord from the set 50326: Victorian Lord & Dame (sculpted by Bob Ridolfi); and 77409, Flara, Elf Heroine (sculpted by Werner Klocke). WIP thread here.
  8. My GM needed a party of NPCs fast for a game of Exalted set in the World of Darkness (think fantasy characters popping up in a modern day world, more or less). There was no time to order anything, but we had the handy new Bones III core and Mythos sets. These are the Bones minis 77322, Kassandra of the Blade (sculpted by Werner Klocke); 77405, Aeris, Female Elf Ranger (sculpted by Julie Guthrie); as-yet unnumbered Mythos figures based on 50032: Jake Ryan, Hero Explorer (sculpted by Bobby Jackson) and the Victorian Lord from the set 50326: Victorian Lord & Dame (scul
  9. Rather than clutter up the topic in sci-fi general with the details of how I'm painting these guys, I decided to start a wip thread. The plan is to paint all the marines in the primaris half of the new warhammer 40000 starter box. So far I know the base colors I'm going with are purple armor, silver trim, blue weapons, green lenses. I haven't decided on squad markings or chapter symbol yet. This is of course not the colors of a canonical chapter, so I'm making it up as I go. I painted two test models just to make sure purple, blue, silver looked ok.
  10. Earlier this week I got my hands on a set of bones 3 mythos cultists. I'm not really that into cthulhu, but I do love a crazy looking cult. So I went with purple robes with bronze weapons, and painted the faces as masks. Not really sure if they were meant to be masks, but I think it worked.
  11. Okay, this is a WIP of the making of the vignette, not the entire paint process. This is my first post here, so bear with me if I have to modify stuff. If the descriptions come out by the right photos the first time, I'll be pleasantly surprised :-) The post is going to be photo heavy, so I reduced the size of all of them. Hopefully it won't be too bloated. #1 The 99% mostly finished unicorn. -- EDIT -- grabbed the wrong photo, this one also lacks the mane & tail highlighting. If I add the corrected photo it will screw up the order. Whoops :-) #2 I "built" this tree using th
  12. So I'm working on this guy as a gift, and I finally think I've twitched the purple on the body into something I like. For the most part, I also like the red in the mane, tail, and bottom of the legs. However, I am somehow hitting a brick wall when I try to think of what to use for bright highlights on the mane and tail. I don't think any of the reds will be contrast enough, I really don't want to go pink, and I'm hesitant to try yellow for fear it will look too much like flames. Should I use something really far off, like the Sophie silver I blended into the horn? Or something else? S
  13. Hi All, I thought I'd give this popular little guy a quick lick of paint. Comments are always welcome, Thanks for looking!
  14. I used some of the suggestions on these forums to paint these. I first sprayed a clear matte sealer on (so the ink and paint will stick to the mini) then doused it in purple ink, then dry-brushed with 2 shades of pink (darker one and a lighter one) and then I hit them with a small amount of white. Still retains some of the translucent purple effect. Good for a Ghostbusters game.
  15. Way back when Relic Knights was being Kickstarted, Sodapop miniatures introduced crossover characters for their already successful Super Dungeon Explore. I painted this guy up just a little while ago, but now, with the release of Ninja All Stars, I think he would fit nicely into a Ninja Themed Super Dungeon game. I went with a very controlled color pallet- keep a strong sense of light and dark among the purple, with a strongly contrasting NMM gold. I think the pallet worked well on him.
  16. Had a discussion aa little while back at the FLGS's paint night about color theory and how wolves don't have to be brown or grey, they can be blue or PINK & PURPLE! So I decided to make an example and paint one of the Bones 77009: Werewolfs For added difficulty I did the entire mini in 1.5 hours, I used the package he came in as my palette and a $1 Size 4 Flat brush. The Punk Rock Pink didn't come out quite as bright as I wanted but I still like it. The claws were abysmal. Even if I had spent time cleaning up mold lines etc I think they would have been ugly. There was a spot of fur
  17. HI all! I'm just getting round to posting some photos from ages ago. C&C welcome.
  18. not sure I am totally happy with this one. Started with purple and green, took out the green,added brown and pewter esp on the back plates. I really liked the purple on the claws, but I am uncertain about the leg scales. perhaps I need to spend a month working on scales..... hmm basing.. he fits on a 3" base, mostly. any suggestions on this guy?
  19. Painted up 77006: Great Worm after NomadZeke requested a nontraditional monster for the 2015 Summer exchange. (It's really fun, you should join) Been trying to work on more range in my shadows and highlights so I tried out the technique from How to Blend by olliekickflip. Still need a lot of practice but I call it a success. All of the shading was done only by starting with a white base and building up the paint.
  20. Howdy, I'm currently working on a present for my wife. It is a conversion piece to look like Yvonne Craig's Batgirl from the original Batman TV series. I wanted to do something special for it (besides the sculpt) and have glittery or metallic purple paint for the costume. For those who may not know, her costume is very glittery (shown in the attachments). If anybody has any suggestions, I would be very appreciative. There is still sculpting work to be done, so I have time before I put the brush to the figure. Thanks!
  21. I've been a long time lurker and haven't been really good about tracking my painting, but I figured it was time. My current project is a Reaper Bones Red Dragon. So far, I have most of the base coating down (sans base and claws). I've been attempting a bit of wet-blending on the wings, but I think they need more work. Looking at the picture, I also see some more mould lines that could use some work. Overall, I'm pretty pleased with the progress. Colors used so far (my base is my darkest color): Body: Blood Red Wings: Dark Elf Skin triad Horns, teeth, etc: Bone Shadow Belly: Tann
  22. A fellow player in a Reign of Winter game has been "tooling around"* with an unpainted strumpet miniature. I offered to paint it if she told me what she should look like, and so I was given an unpainted Bones mini and a quick watercolor sketch to work off of. This is the result, after a couple hours of work! Overall, I'm pretty happy with her! She is not great, but I'm improving. This is also some of my better work on hair, ever. That Jessica Rich DVD from the kickstarter is starting to pay off. However, I still did just a quick paint up (probably 2 hours...) and
  23. It looks like this and another post of mine (plus a third that I didn't finish posting) were all assigned the same post ID (or some similar identifying value) when I duplicated the new thread page last night. It looks as though everything got pretty mangled, and the only way I know of off the top of my head to fix this is to start a new post. That thread is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61556-77086-townsfolk-strumpet/
  24. Had this fellow finished for some time. Hard to take decent photos of it since it's so big: I used this blue and purple snake as my inspiration for the color scheme:
