    14094: Tariq, Nefsokar Sergeant

    My girlfriend just started running the new Shattered Star adventure path for Pathfinder. I decided on playing a paladin from Qadira (basically india). I looked around and found this awesome mini, Tariq, Nefsokar Sergeant (so awesome in fact that I used the name Tariq). The original paintscheme on the site did pretty well for my needs, but I change it a bit. I particularly didn't like the fact that the helm had the same color as his skin, so I changed that. I also made the base more pronounced desert. I tried to put in some free hand work, but it didn't look like it belonged really. The part of him I am most happy with is his face. My first darker skintone really. The thing I am least happy with is the armor, but to take it to the next level I would really need to learn non-metallic.

    60016: Sajan, Iconic Monk

    Finally finished my version of Sajan, the iconic pathfinder monk. I set out to use the 'original' color scheme, but ended up not doing it all. Mainly on account of not having the skills to pull it off. PS: I am aware of the blotchy hand with the sword. This mini was broken, but I figured... *beep* it, it is still worth painting!
  3. did the warrior in LTPK1. doing my own touch ups to him now

    Ranger / fighter

    I believe this is a reaper mini, but I can't seem to find the number. Regardless, this is for tabletop. My first time trying eyes. :)

    02807 Lamann Sorcerer

    My latest piece. I think I did a better job on shades and highlights this time around. As for the base, i need to get some materials.. Also tried a little freehand on this one... a couple of the lines are much fatter than what i wanted but once i started I was committed. Lessons learned... Going to stop attaching the mini to a base right off the bat, Im finding it just makes it difficult at times. Colors behave very different from each other with respect to thinning, glazing and such, gonna take more practice.

    Tabletop quality paintjob on some reaper (non pathfinder) goblins. Tried to be a bit extreme with the orange/yellow so they are readily readable on the table. You'd be surprised just how much goblins are thrown around during my combats.

    50206 Professor Kraken

    I've completed another mini, this time everyone's favorite dapper mind flayer, Professor Kraken. Right now, he's just loosely slotted into the base he came from. I'm considering a few options for a permanent base. I may get a pre-sculpted base and place him on there. Alternately, I may get some green stuff and try to sculpt a Victorian street, or even a dirt path for him to be running down. I tried a lot of experimenting with shading and highlighting on this mini. The results are... a little less than subtle, but I think they work, at least for tabletop. The bottom of the pants got an extra treatment of Agrax Earthshade, with a little Walnut Brown to darken them. I wanted to make it look like he'd been running down a dirty street. The shoes (already walnut brown) got a little Intense Brown mud on them.
  8. Conversion of 65105: Talanka, Female Ogre Shaman into a hill giantess. The club is from the staff that was originally in her left hand. The drinking horn started as one of the tusks strapped to her back.
  9. Hellcow

    Earth Elemental

    Second miniature of the New Age of Miniature Painting at the Hellcow Household! I'm going to come right out and say it - I am pretty darned pleased with how this guy turned out. All of the little things I tried here, imo, worked just like I wanted them too with the sole exception of that headstone - I shouldn't have done the 'dipping' technique on it as I was unable to get the pale surface color I wanted. Oh well - now that there is a little dullcote on it I can clean it up later!
  10. It seemed appropriate (not to mention easier) to go with the skeletons for my first attempt at painting bones. I'd like to get a better close-up, but my camera won't focus any closer than this (I've a Nikon Coolpix L19). As you can probably tell, I went a little crazy with washes this time around. I started off painting them a nice solid Uthuan Grey from the citadel paints I got. Next came a wash of Reaper's Walnut Brown, to bring out the details. It was a little too strong on one of them, so he also got a wash of Reaper's Pure White on top of that. Then they got a wash of Ushati Bone, to give them a bit of yellow, some dry-brushing with Pure White and then finally Citadel's Agrax Earthshade to give them that just-crawled-out-of-the-grave look. Or at least, that was the intention. I think they ended up a little too dirty, and the white ended up a bit too blotchy in places. Need to work on my dry-brushing skills. The shields were painted with Citadel's Leadbelcher, with the rims and central button done with Reaper's True Silver. Some Earthshade was used to make the shields look older, less shiny. The spears were painted with Reaper's Intense Brown, with a wash of Walnut Brown to make the stripes. Just the hafts took probably the longest of any part of this project, because I forgot that you're not supposed to thin out the first layer onto the plastic. The one time I remember to thin my paints... The heads of the spears were painted with True Silver. I tried to use a wash of Reaper's Carnage Red with the Earthshade to give them a rusted look, but I don't think it quite turned out as I was hoping. The eyes are also Carnage Red, and I used the wash around them to try and give them a "glowing" look. Sadly, I think it looks more like they're all cosplaying as Raphael. Ah well. At least I know that method won't work. Have to keep experimenting. You can get a better look at my failed attempt at rust here, as well as a decent shot of the straps. The fasteners on the straps were done with a spot of True Silver. I used a 3/0 brush I picked up at Michael's to get them done. Hard to see here, but I think that's actually the best looking part of the models.

    77004 Cave Troll

    Another mini done. This time I tried a little more with shading. I decided to finally give the grass green color from my Learn to Paint kit a go, and it formed the base coat for the troll. It may have been a little too bright, in hindsight. Mixed blue and green for the hair. Did some highlights by mixing the green with tanned skin. I wish I'd had some yellow to work with. I think that might have shown up better. You can't really see it in any of these pictures, but I lined the more obvious veins with black. I figured that would work well with the green skin. A look at the back. I added some black here and there to mottle the skin a bit more. There was also a wash with citadel's Caliban Green. The claws were done with a more-or-less even mix of Carnage Red and Sapphire Blue. I'm not totally satisfied with the base. I was trying for a swamp look, with a tanned leather/intense brown mix with green on top. I think it would have looked better if I'd reversed it. Given a root system look. Not much to say for this side. I probably did too much of the wash on the foot there. Looks almost like I lined it. Here you can see my attempt at the eyes. I had trouble getting the eyes to really stand out. Red just seemed too obvious, black was too subdued, and white looked off. I ended up going with basic white with little black dots. Not great, and not well accomplished, but at least you can tell there are eyes there. Y'know, if you squint, and pretend.

    LTP Barrow Rat 8901

    Since I finished up the Man-at-Arms, it was time to turn my attention to the other mini in the set: the Barrow Rat. I tried some of the advice I received on the board, and I think it turned out a lot better this time. Here's a top view. Not a lot of detail on display here, but you can see how I glued it to a bottlecap for handling (rub-off of the primer was a major issue on the last mini). You can also see that the base is primed, but not painted. I'll be painting it eventually, but I just wanted to paint the mini this time. Here's a side-view. You can see the fur texture pretty well. I think it came out pretty well. The fur is a bit "dirtier" than I intended. I need to thin out my washes a little more next time. I like how the pustules worked out. Other side. A little blurrier, but a closer view. More pustules on this side. A nice three-quarters view. I couldn't get a good head-on picture, but I think this shows the mouth off reasonably well. The white for the claws is a bit "leaked" on the ground around them, but that can be fixed if and when I paint the base. Overall, better than the Man-at-Arms. Not perfect, but I feel like I'm making progress.

    Choose Your WIP Adventure 2: WIP Harder

    Since I had so much fun with the last one, I thought I'd go for a second. Only this time leave it up for a week so more people can get in on it and tell me what to do. Er, paint. *channels cylon* By. Your. Command. Anywhat, here's what we've got in the ring. 1. Representing Reaper Miniatures, weighing in with three skeletons and a hot chick, give it up for: 03100, Thanis, Bonecaller! *crowd cheers* *camera flashes strobe* 2. And from RAFM miniatures, for your entertainment with his whacky bag of tricks and prestidigitation, it's 3737, Lich Magician with Skeletal Rabbit! *hand goes up in audience* "Um, excuse me, is that rabbit really dead?" No, sir. It is undead! 3. And from Ral Partha, the woman who wrote the book on dragons, 03-092: Ellana, Dragonmistress. Smaug: "Boo! Hiss! You suck! Bring back my cookware!" 4. And last but not least, straight from the infinite layers of the Abyss, it's a trio from Ral Partha TSR 11-651: Dretch! *Three Stooges Sounds* Who will be crowned Miss Macross . . . uh, I mean who will be painted? You, the Reaperinos, will decide!

    LTP Man At Arms 8901

    Okay, this is my first attempt at painting a metal mini. I don't think it looks quite as nice as my space marines, but I also experimented a lot more. The eyes were done as one of the earlier parts of the job, and it shows. Eventually, I just got frustrated with trying to get the eyes to look somewhat eye-shaped, and said "good enough." At some point, I may return and actually paint something on the shield. For now, simple blue will have to do. You can see where the wash meant for the metal rim intruded on the blue. I tried going with some vertical striping on the shield to suggest woodgrain, but the brush wouldn't cooperate with me. You can see where I tried a bit of highlighting on the edge of the sword and on the helmet here. It... didn't go as well as I'd hoped.
  15. Not sure how many people saw the article but I scoured the forum and didn't see anything posted about it so here you go if you missed it. I'm just going to post the link (hopefully) so you can head there yourself and save some space here. It's a great, albeit short, piece about the impact Reaper's KS is having on the RPG industry and what it says for the future of the gaming market. Great job guys!! http://www.wired.com/design/2012/08/reaper-miniatures-bones-kickstarter-success/

    03058: Mika, Female Samurai

    I almost hate taking pictures of these minis, not only because my photography skills suck but it seems to magnify all my little imperfections... at least my light looks less yellow this time... think i just need more of it... anyway... Here is my third...No tossing away supplies Baphomet...

    50140: Torrent and GW Misc

    So I just got into painting minis, i don't even play any miniature games ... yet anyway, but i wanted to post a couple pics to show the first couple completed projects My first attempt, The emperor's champion Second go round, Not quite sure i like so much metallic in one place so i tried something different. Reaper's Torrent (i know its supposed to be water but i think the molten rock looks cool... maybe I'll take 50141: Inferno and try to pull off Ice or water Just started playing around with basing so im going to try to have a more finished looking end product moving forward. Any sort of constructive C/C is welcome... Next project is an Eldar Wraithlord (a buddy here plays 40k so he keeps giving me old minis to paint for him) I expect it to be a little easier since its almost double the size of these previous projects
  18. Hello all, I bought an Additives Triad the a little while back - I think it was late March - and I was surprised at the consistency of the Brush-on Primer that came in it. I used it right away, and it didn't form drops out of the bottle, but rather it oozed out of the dropper, acting more solid than liquid - it reminded me of squeezing toothpaste from a tube, with it coming out of the bottle in a snake-like fashion rather than drops. Is this normal with the Brush-on Primer? It's just been difficult to measure water ratios with the primer acting like this, and with this being the first time I've used Reaper's Brush-on Primer, I'm not sure if the results I've had are typical for this product. It seems to cover metal ok, but on plastics - specifically the plastic used by Privateer Press - it doesn't cling to the miniature, rather it seems to bead like water on glass. (I'll be re-cleaning the pieces to ensure it's not some sort of release issue, but the PP minis seem to have a smooth, gloss-like finish on them that seems to repel the brush-on primer from sticking. I've had the same issue in the past with brush-on paints on my Gundam scale-models, if they're not spray primed first.) Any advice would be helpful - I like being able to prime by brush. I don't always have the time to spray paint - I usually get the bug to paint at odd hours. Thanks in advance! My 2 yen, Akiosama
