  1. I've been hitting a slump in my painting that's been keeping me from these forums for quite a while. I'm trying to regain my rythm and getting some pieces done. This is one of them: Sandru Vhiski from Reaper Pathfinder Miniatures range. I don't really know why I rushed him up the production line. He's somewhat fitting for a character I'm playing in a DnD game, although yet he's not. Perhaps he's a good fit for a future character? Sadly he ended up somewhat flat.
  2. I painted up Dub here to be a thief for Frostgrave. One of the main things I wanted to do was get the cloak reading as black rather than grey, so I'd love to get people's feedback on it. You may have noticed that he's looking a little bloodied, but that's because of the big honkin' mould line running down the middle of his face. I mentioned to my wife that it made him look like he'd been punched in the face, which got me thinking - why not run with it? So I glazed his face with magenta and smeared some Tamiya clear red over the offending area. Feel free to let me know what you think!
  3. Hey! I painted the models Saramonde, Crusaders Chronicler and Kyla, Bounty Hunter! And HERE you will find a post on my blog!
  4. Painted a new trio of Talisman minis today, plus I had one left from a couple weeks ago. The trio are from the Dragon expansion, and I was racing through them so we can use them this weekend. First up is the Fire Wizard: His draconic hide cloak turned out great, though it doesn't look so good in the pics. His fireball looks serviceable, though it could obviously use more work. Next is the Dragon Hunter: I didn't even try to do facial features due to time constraints. I usually struggle with them, especially eyes, and end up redoing them several times. And with these smaller scale, truer scale minis, eyes are really tough for me. I also struggle to get good pictures. I included two shots of his front, the actual mini is somewhere in between, and has better detail on the dragon scales. The back of his trousers are a good example of the oddity of the photography. The seat, thigh and calf are all the same shade, but a trick of the lighting makes it look like the thigh is a much darker shade. Third is the Minotaur: His pictures really don't do him justice, I think he turned out really well. I matched the card art colours quite closely, and he has different coloured straps, loincloth etc. Unfortunately it didn't photograph well at all. His snout doesn't even really look pink. Here is a shot of the trio: Finally the left over Rogue, who I already played in a game last weekend, and even managed to pull out the win: And a comparison shot with her and the little highlander:
  5. Over the weekend I finished up Ingrid, Female Gnome from the Bones 1 Kickstarter's Half-Sized Heroes set. I pulled her out of the pile because I wanted to get another Thief figure painted up for Frostgrave. I didn't realize she was a Gnome when I selected her, so I painted her up as a Halfling. I thought the object in her hand, from the way she is holding it extended, looked like it was supposed to be some sort of magic light source; like the Phial of Galadriel in The Lord of the Rings. So, I had to have a nice debate with myself as to whether I was going to attempt serious Object Source Lighting for the first time, or skip the pressure and just paint her as if she was simply holding a snowball, or a rock. In the end I'm pleased. It's a little heavy handed; but I wanted it to look like a very stark unnatural lighting, and I think it does. I can also say there's lots of room for me to improve, but luckily its a skill I don't think I will have to call upon very often. C & C welcome, please. And with a little lighting effect...
  6. Looks like I forgot to post this little beauty from the year-end Conga Line of Doom. This is Julie Guthrie's Valloa, Elf Thief, SKU 03566 from Reaper. Something happened to my original set of photos. These were taken after she was varnished and she is a little satin-finished, making it a little harder to see the painted shiny leather effects. I really like this figure.
  7. Hey folks! Just finished up Rogan, and thought I would post him... Love this figure! The eyes are a real pain due to the cloak hood over hang... If I had not just finished playing a thief in the last campain, I am pretty sure this would be MY new PC! Comments welcome! I just noticed something, It seems that my group and I must have an odd taste in pcs, almost all the ones that I paint and post have not been posted by anyone else! One other thing: If you do this figure in metal, be very careful in the way you remove the hands/weapons from the sprue! I had BOTH dagger pommels stay on the sprue when I stupidly tried to twist them off, so had to pin them back on. The figure in the online catalog is also missing both pommels....
  8. This week I completed a tabletop paint job on Tiviel, Hellborn Rogue, from the Bones 1 Kickstarter "Bedeviled" set. When looking at this figure there was something about it that looked more Sci-Fi than Fantasy to me. I don't know if it was the outfit, or the stance, or just the general demeanor of the figure; but to me it looked a bit more like a Star Trek alien than a fantasy world demon. So, I decided to go with that for my painting scheme. I'm pleased with how the Sci-Fi look turned out on her. I think she looks like a good alien assassin, or perhaps some sort of exotic knife dancer. As always, C & C welcome. For the full painting article, please se my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2016/01/tiviel-hellborn-rogue-figure-192-of-266.html
  9. I was commissioned to paint this figure for a D&D player and finished her up today. Enjoy!
  10. This week I finished a quick tabletop job on the Female Elf Rogue from the Dragons Don't Share Set (Does she have a name?) I plan to use her in one of my Frostgrave Warbands. C and C welcome.
  11. Went through my Bones 1 kickstarter box recently and decided to give this guy some color. I'm thinking of using him as a rogue, hence the dark clothes.
  12. Hey there Reaper pips! Just finished painting a dual wielding rouge/thief. Critiques to help me improve are most welcome. Thanks in advance.
  13. Hero Forge: Archetypes 1 & 2 - Paladin & Rogue - Casting Type: Strong Plastic - table quality. I was commissioned to paint these miniature for a D&D 5e game. They are a Dragonborn Paladin and a Gnome Rogue. I am going to tag this thread with another thread that has a WIP of another HF miniatures. My over all review of this thus far is not great. I don't want to bash another company but I am not impressed so far. The miniature absorbs the paint. No joke It takes it into the miniature. The following pictures take about 4 rounds of diluted paint to achieve the color. I saw the video SamuraiJack posted about coating them. But as this is my first try and I didn't pay for them I was not going to attempt them. The likelihood is I may not get the chance as I am unwilling to purchase a "Strong Plastic" Hero Forge miniature to test it out. First coat of Reaper Brown Wash (3:1) to see the details better. It didn't help much; the cast of these didn't have the details show very well at all. Next was a dry brush: From dark grey to a lighter gray. Duel attempt: Bring out detail / add shadowing. It took about 4 layers of diluted paint. I standardly use a 3:1 ratio as I am prone to glazing/washing. Honed Steel, White Leather (which is whiter than the link, fyi), Denim Blue (also lighter than the picture) Forest Green, Intense Brown, I'm also attempting to paint faster too, Trying to get my production time down for table table quality.
  14. This is a new Mousling thief from the Bones II Kickstarter. I've painted up six different Mouslings for a campaign. WIP thread here. Other painted Mouslings in the set: Beekeeper, Assassin, Ranger With Bow, Yeoman (Robin Hood), Druid
  15. This is a little assassin Mousling, the second of six Mouslings I've painted for a seriously multispecies campaign. WIP thread here. Other Mouslings in this group: A Yeoman, A Ranger, A Thief, A Beekeeper-Falconer, and A Druid
  16. Something a bit different for me today. A few years ago now there was a time before Zombicide and Borderlands 2 when my gaming group spent quite a few evenings playing through those D&D Boargames. I've shown off the odd critter from Ravenloft and Ashardalon here before, but this guy is from the other side. A model purchased to represent one of the player characters. I actually created a huge list of (mostly) Reaper Miniatures to better represent the player characters as I was never particularly enamoured of the PC models that came in the boxes. One such character was the Half-Orc Thief. Needing one of those, I browsed the Reaper online catalogue and saw this guy, a lovely Tre' Manor sculpt. Shortly afterwards, he was mine. Since I'm no fan of broccoli bases, I had to base him on something plastic and round. A Proxie models 40mm round base was the best and most appropriate thing I had, if a little large, but with his stature and wide-legged stance, this was the smallest thing I could fit him on. The most important thing was to work out a palette that worked for a rogue, was somewhat realistic (for a fantasy trope) and wasn't completely boring. That means an all-black outfit was out. It might be the "obvious" go-to for a rogue or thief in some ways, but I also thought it's the sort of thing that's very likely to attract lots of attention if he were to be walking down a street or sitting in a tavern. Kinda like a sign saying "YES I AM A THIEF", or a guy in a ninja outfit sitting in your local Starbucks. So I wanted to use some colours. Secondly, this guy is a Half-Orc, not a weedy Elf, so I wanted to go for muted, natural colours instead of rich, opulent colours. The result was dark grey leggings, a brown leather padded jerkin, and for a spot colour, red-brown gloves and boots. Pouches in dark grey again, and a natural woodland green for his cloak. The sort of thing that would be dark and dull enough to provide some camouflage in a town or out in the bush. His dual-wielded daggers are painted in the Vallejo colour called "Metal Black" (Or Black Metal!) - which is a really dark, true gunmetal colour. No shine, no highlight, no picking out the pommel or crossguard in bronze, or painting the little skulls on them in bone or gold or whatever. They're bloody rogue's daggers! Anyway, this guy - like so many other figures - sat half-painted and mostly forgotten for a couple of years before I chose him a couple of weeks ago to get done and dusted. Within a day, he was finished. Since we're not playing the D&D games at the moment and haven't played Pathfinder in a year or more, now he goes into a glass cabinet until needed at some point in the future. At least he's done, though!
  17. Sebastian was orphaned as a boy in Baldur's Gate when his father was convicted of murder, and sent to the dungeons. The halfbreed son of a human father and elven mother, he never really fit in. He was taken in by a member of The Guild, and educated on the ways of the street. Sebastian proved to be quite the earner. He had an uncanny ability, almost supernatural, of being able to follow a mark virtually invisible. That was until the day he found the wrong mark. Keldrith Riverstride caught the young teen attempting to lift his coin purse. Rather than kill him or turn him in the authorities, he struck up an agreement with young man. Sebastian would work off his debt as a the Ranger's aid. Running errands and keeping his weapons and armor in good repair. Keldrith sensed something special in the young man. Months later, Sebastian would begin his apprenticeship with Keldrith, becoming an expert hunter and tracker. That is a brief, highlighted backstory to the character this model was painted to represent. I chose the green/brown color pallet to reflect the ranger aspect. The sculpt itself shows the rogue aspect. Overall I am happy with the way he came out, though I am not too happy with NMM. I need to work on it more, and get a better understanding of reflected light off of a blade and such. As all always, feel free to comment and critique. I am trying new things, and always learning. (some really great tutorials on the forums) I am not sure how I am going to base him. I am not very good at sculpting, so I may just paint it black, and leave it for now. I need to learn to sculpt some stonework floors or wooden floors. That's further down the road I think. CAH
  18. Another Dark Hold goblin from that KS. This was the last I had primed and ready, with his having missed out on the first batch. Thanks for looking!
  19. Here is one of the crossbowmen for my Warband. He was a lot of fun to paint. This was the first one I tried using sealers in between washes/layers. I am really happy with how he came out. Bloodmane Crossbowman - (Yet to be named) CAH
  20. 03698: Tengu Rogue by Derek Schubert This miniatures was done for the miniature Summer Exchange 2015 for Marineal. I tried a new masking technique with this one and used yellow (instense yellow) to back the bands. Colors in, now time for shading The base are two wood disks of different size bought from Hobby Lobby. I then glued them together and used a hole saw to crave out the spot for the MDF base. Greenstuff and sand. Made the large plant and log by hand.
  21. Tengu Rogue: 03698 by Derek Schubert Work-In-Progress for the Tengu Rogue Completed for the 2015 Summer Exchange for Marineal. She requested bright colors. I pushed myself to go bright. Enjoy!
  22. Here's one with which I wound up pretty happy. Julie Guthrie's Ridley Darkedge, Male Rogue. I even kind of gave him eyes. Sort of. Bit of a flaw around the crown of his head, didn't smooth out right, accidentally totally obscured it in the pictures, and it was beyond my skills as a fixer of minis. Love this sculpt all the same, though. Thanks for looking!
  23. Mildly embarrassed to post this on the heels of Derek's fantastic painting of his own sculpt, haha. But here's my take on his amazing mini. Derek Schubert's Tengu Rogue. I straight up LOVE this mini. I was very happy with how mine turned out, to be honest. I was worried about trying to get something going with his plumage, but my initial impulse to use Nightmare Black worked out pretty well, I think. I mixed some gray in with it to highlight the beak, and I thought it worked out pretty well for me. Tried to keep the highlighting on the plumage simple. And I was hellbent to go with white for his top. But, yeah. Pretty happy with him. This was my first time painting on Rust-Oleum camouflage primer (the tan version), and I was pretty stoked about how it took the paint. Only problem, really, was that it doesn't hide my mistakes as well lol. Thanks for looking!
  24. As those keeping score at home surely must know by now, I loooove Sandra Garrity's work. Elia Shadowfeet, Female Halfling Thief, is a fantastic mini, innit? I was pretty happy with how mine turned out, here. Thanks for looking.
  25. Here is Eskin, painted up to represent my character in Wandering Through the Forgotten Realms, Jared, a THIEF. The lighting isn't fantastic. As always, C & C welcome!
