  1. We needed Bugbears for D&D and with the timing of my Bones II delivery on Friday I dug these guys out, washed them and sat down to paint them. I spent 4 hours on Sunday painting and basing these guys. Considering that breaks down to about 40 minutes a mini I am happy with them and now they can hit the table this week. And as a bonus they will also bring my total for the RPChallenge for February to 8. After looking up their sku's I discovered Reaper named the three new sculpts and I must say I love that they have names. Makes me feel they have so much more character now and feel sorry I didn't spend a bit more time on them. Sorry only took one group picture of these guys as I didn't feel they each deserved their own photo.
  2. You may now commence squeeing... Hedgehog familiar from Familiar Pack VIII... A present for Dilvish's Daughter for helping me organize my giant pile of familiars... Hand-sculpted 25mm base.
  3. Continuing on with the Febuary challenge goals I set myself, (painting at least one of each from the following categories: Reaper Bones, Oathsworn, All Quiet of the Martian Front, Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40.000, Kings of War, Deadzone, DreadBall, Mars Attacks, Shadows of Brimstone, Sedition Wars, Drake, Grendel Productions something or other, and to finish something that currently stands around half-done on the shelf of shame), I have done a few minis over the weekend, As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. Here goes for Drake: the Dragon Wargame Drake the Dragon Wargame: Terrax of The Mystics faction. Not much to say about it really. The Terrax is a type of Dragonkin, a smaller breed of dragons that are servants to the true dragons that rule the Drake world of Dara. Drake was a kickstarter that delivered one wave of nice minis (with many teething problems, but nice anyhow), then did another kickstarter and disappeared with all the money, ponzi-style. I do not expect to hear any more from them. Too bad, the concept was really good and with some work could have been a viable game. 40mm base, metal miniature. This miniature is the one that fulfills this months resolution. Yay! Two months down, ten to go!
  4. Continuing on with the Febuary challenge goals I set myself, (painting at least one of each from the following categories: Reaper Bones, Oathsworn, All Quiet of the Martian Front, Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40.000, Kings of War, Deadzone, DreadBall, Mars Attacks, Shadows of Brimstone, Sedition Wars, Drake, Grendel Productions something or other, and to finish something that currently stands around half-done on the shelf of shame), I have done a few minis over the weekend, As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. This is actually a bonus figure, as I already have done a Warhammer mini this month! I must say I really don't mind if the rumours about WFB moving to round bases is true... Warhammer Fantasy Battles Old School Wraith 'cause I just love those classic Warhammer sculpts. And wonder how on earth this one did not fall over all the time on the microscopic square 20mm base it was packaged with. Much nicer, and stable, 30mm base, white metal.
  5. So I keep keep making minis for my players. This one is currently a Level 6 (Champion tier) Minotaur monk in a 13th age game He has died once, lost a finger to frostbite, and seen 0 hp at least 1 in 3 sessions. Two sessions ago he got someone to carve runes of healing in his horns. They seem to be helping. His bracers are magical, and he mentioned he wanted some kind of brass knuckle attachment. Presenting Hal Ford - Priest of Judas. (yes the player is a metalhead) This figure has some wicked mold lines - If I can still see them I may just paint them as scars. unrelated picts of gaming group.
  6. Continuing on with the Febuary challenge goals I set myself, (painting at least one of each from the following categories: Reaper Bones, Oathsworn, All Quiet of the Martian Front, Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40.000, Kings of War, Deadzone, DreadBall, Mars Attacks, Shadows of Brimstone, Sedition Wars, Drake, Grendel Productions something or other, and to finish something that currently stands around half-done on the shelf of shame), I have done a few minis over the weekend, As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. Here goes for Shadows of Brimstone: The Brimstone Strangler! Not a Blue Horror at all. No, sirree! The Strangler is one of the weaker Void monsters from The Shadows of Brimstone: City of Ancients board game. I quite like these chaps. They are both chewy and strangular! And eminently usable in a variety of roles in a variety of games. And there are six of them in the set. The details are a bit soft, but perfectly serviceable. 25mm base, hard styrene / HIPS plastic.
  7. Continuing on with the Febuary challenge goals I set myself, (painting at least one of each from the following categories: Reaper Bones, Oathsworn, All Quiet of the Martian Front, Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40.000, Kings of War, Deadzone, DreadBall, Mars Attacks, Shadows of Brimstone, Sedition Wars, Drake, Grendel Productions something or other, and to finish something that currently stands around half-done on the shelf of shame), I have done a few minis over the weekend, As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. Here goes for All Quiet on the Martian Front: Flee the Red Weed! For those who do not know, All Quiet on the Martian Front is a relatively new game made by Alien Dungeon, written by Rick Priestly, Alessio Cavatore and Ernie Baker. It was kickstarted about two years ago, and have delivered two massive waves of product, with a third still in yet to come. The setting is ca. 1910. The second Martian Invasion (the events of the first was described in the novel The War of the Worlds by HG Wells) has taken place, and half of the USA has fallen to the implacable Martians and their damnable tripods. The game is 15mm (more like 18mm) scale and features American steam-driven early tanks, motorcycles with tow-hooks, dougthy doughboys, and Land Iron Clad Battleships in desperate battle with the Martian Tripods for dominion of the Earth. Plus the British Expeditionary Force lending a hand with their more advanced weaponry, retro-engineered from martian tech left behind when the germs killed off the first invasion in Britain some years earlier. This is my first base of Human Prey, which are Fleeing Civilians ca 1910. Apparently the dominant female fashion of the well-to-do in the US of that era was rather austere and muted colours. Nothing to gaudy. In game the Human Prey don’t really have any specific functions they are not part of any army. They are however great as objectives for scenarios. The Red Weed is some red (actually a rather too bright orange) clump foliage / torn up bits of colored foam. 15mm scale metal minis on a 40mm base.
  8. Another one of my recent quick-and-dirty conversions, and a quick-and-dirty paint job on it... I wasn't bothering to shoot for anything more than tabletop quality on this, as it was all about the conversion. The Bones Mariel Twinspar mounted on the bottom half of 77037 the Bones Medusa, with a fish tail sculpted on the end. Most of the detail on the tail is actually painted on rather than sculpted. My second mini for the month of Feb. For obvious reasons I'm naming her Cap'n Morganna...lol
  9. My attempt at a Pathfinder Eagle Knight:
  10. Painted up this large earth elemental in between my exchange minis. :-) first attempt at OSL, so I've gotta work on that. But I think it turned out okay. C&c always welcome!
  11. and now that my challenge minis are done for the month, time to work on some of my more impressive and special pieces. Meet Raoul. Raoul is the celestial "companion" of a Paladin in my Rise of the Runelords campaign who needs a little help staying on the path now and then. Everyone thought Raoul was just a different colored Pegasus (its a winged horse that flies and your complaint with reality is the color???) until he spoke up and had issues with this description. Needless to say he has since pulled the Paladin out of some tight spots (quite literally by the scruff with his teeth), rode him mercilessly on his various faults, and done a few things that make the party go "huh?" but he probably has most favored party member locked up from most of the group. As for painting him, I wanted to do some serious experimentation with wings and different horse colors, without touching the "pony" color schemes. He is painted up as a Blood Bay for the horse color scheme and his wings are based on a variety of barn owl. personally, I think hes Gorgeous! I still need to work on the body highlights to get that almost white shine off of the flank, but after 4 days of messing with it, I decided to leave it alone where it is and try again on another mini. I would also like to smooth out the feathers some but I am not sure that can be done with this type of wing. That is not to detract that I think he came out amazingly well. from the eyes to the wingtips to the feet, this has been one of my favorites to date. Hope you like him too!
  12. I finished up the other 2! They were so much fun! Talk about some detail though. With the addition of my poison dart paint job, they had cool shields and shells! It was a lot of detail, but I think they came out alright. I'm trying to advance my painting, so please, please! Feel free to give me any criticism or advice if you see something that should be addressed. I can take it! Enjoy! ETA: The basing on these is suboptimal because they will be used on the tabletop... More basing=more stuff in the bottom of the box. :)
  13. Continuing on with the Febuary challenge goals I set myself, (painting at least one of each from the following categories: Reaper Bones, Oathsworn, All Quiet of the Martian Front, Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40.000, Kings of War, Deadzone, DreadBall, Mars Attacks, Shadows of Brimstone, Sedition Wars, Drake, Grendel Productions something or other, and to finish something that currently stands around half-done on the shelf of shame), I have done a few minis over the weekend, As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. Here goes for Deadzone Mantic Deadzone: Rebs human trooper I started out trying to be reminiscent of the Rebel troopers defending Leias ship in the beginning of Star Wars, but that did not turn out well. What followed was a slightly too fast repaint. At least it is not in any colour scheme any of the other factions will have… and rebs being such a diverse collections of individuals, I am going to do them in wildly different outfits / paint schemes anyway. This one will be called George. 25mm base, restic.
  14. this one was a request from my son. I don't normally do multi-headed creatures (the split personality issues have to be crazy) but I couldn't find the bones one I had and this one was just sitting on my shelf with a half coat of red. so a little simple green and a coat of primer and he becomes a swamp monster in the desert. The heads have a story of their own. the one rearing back is one of the 2 original heads, he doesn't like to fight or get into a situation where he might lose his head. The others are descents of the second head and the resplitting is taking its toll. The one on the far side of the body is having problems with basic direction The base is done using my new basius 1 pad, desert island. I bought some of these when I heard that the Basius 2 was going to be late and I really was tired of waiting. I think it works pretty darn well. Anyway, enjoy! EDIT: Learn something every day! This one is a reaper mini. I did not know that. Thank you for identifying the piece and the author. My reaper search - fu is not strong. The sculptor made the id, not me, regardless of what the edit says!
  15. In an effort to clean up my desk and enjoy a few more minis that don't have to be painted, here is once of the critter creations I got from DSM. He was fun to paint and all of the detail was very crisp with little mold line or cleanup required. This one is very well blended between human features and animal features, including hands and tail. Some, like the hedgehogs, seem to be a stocky figure with a different head glued on. I tried a new method with the eyes on this mini and I think I will continue where size allows. I started with a linen white sclera then a dark brown iris, a smaller inner circle of palomino gold and then a black pupil. with a random little dot of white. weird thing is, although both eyes look normal on the mini, his one eye looks a little messed up on the picture. odd. Anyway, let me know what you think. My wife bought me a dozen or so of these so they will continue to make appearances as I paint them up. And I will paint them because they are cute and my wife likes them, as do I...
  16. Finally got to paint my bones! I've been working a lot, and a 12 hour shift in the ER+ an hour long drive on each end doesn't leave a lot of time for anything but sleep. I was trying to make him look like a reticulated poison dart frog, and I think I got pretty close! C&c always welcome, hope y'all like him!
  17. Continuing on with the Febuary challenge goals I set myself, (painting at least one of each from the following categories: Reaper Bones, Oathsworn, All Quiet of the Martian Front, Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40.000, Kings of War, Deadzone, DreadBall, Mars Attacks, Shadows of Brimstone, Sedition Wars, Drake, Grendel Productions something or other, and to finish something that currently stands around half-done on the shelf of shame), I have done a few minis over the weekend, As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. Here goes for Mars Attacks! Ack Ack We-Come-In-Peace Ack Ack! **Zzap** This is the test piece for the paint job, and the first Mars Attacks! mini I have done. The colour scheme turned out to be quite quick and easy (thank god for that!) This mini is one piece PVC slightly soft plastic (a bit like Bones, but stiffer), I have actually not had to cut off any mould lines apart from on the sides of the base (high five!). I quickly decided to treat these more like board game pieces or toys than minis and not bother with what little mould lines there are. I am actually quite impressed with the quality considering the material. 25mm base, PVC.
  18. I was debating posting this since there was already a zombie done for the V-Day challenge, but you can never have too many zombies, right? I figure somebody should represent the bah-humbug crowd for this holiday, lol, so since the other zombie was cute, I figured I'd be a contrary so-and-so and do this one more gruesome... Thus, a zombie ripping his own heart out of his chest to give to you... ::D: I call it "To Hell With From Hell With Love", lol... Better pics possibly forthcoming. (You can't really see the nice blood spatter dripping from the hole, lol. On the other hand, the filmed-over eyes came out better than I thought they would.) Here's a better angle of the heart in his right hand. This is also my first mini for the Resolutionary Painting Challenge for Feb. It's a WizKids Pathfinder zombie from the Undead Horde set I picked up on an impulse to check out the quality of the sculpts for the set. I wasn't impressed - the paid professional who made this guy's chainmail just poked random holes in the surface. Which my completely amateur self did almost just as well on as he did when I rebuilt the shoulders from brownstuff... So about half the "links" in the mail are painted on. (I just put alternating bright swishes and black dots inbetween the existing holes.) Conversion-wise, I lopped off both of the guy's arms, shaved off a fair amount of their area where they conected to the shoulder and pinned them in a new position, sculpted a new set of shoulders for him, then lopped off the left hand and rotated it so it was palm-up. I also sliced off all of the weapons sticking out of the guy, which looked ridiculous. I then drilled the hole in his chest and sculpted the reasonably realistic-looking human heart in his hand. Considering I'd never done one of those before, it came out fairly accurate.
  19. Another speed paint. Her eyes took the longest but I did manage to get an iris and pupil in there. First mini painted for February challenge.
  20. Continuing on with the Febuary challenge goals I set myself, (painting at least one of each from the following categories: Reaper Bones, Oathsworn, All Quiet of the Martian Front, Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40.000, Kings of War, Deadzone, DreadBall, Mars Attacks, Shadows of Brimstone, Sedition Wars, Drake, Grendel Productions something or other, and to finish something that currently stands around half-done on the shelf of shame), I have done a few minis over the weekend, As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. Here goes for Sedition Wars: Battle for Alabaster Strain Phase 1. Basically your space zombie mutant thing, Your former colleague or friend, Changing before your eyes and coming at you Doom-style. It is part machine, part necrotic tissue, all terrifying mutant monster! Painted in much the same way as the Space Hurps
  21. Bonus mini for this months resolutionary challenge Based on previous postings, I guess this one also counts as NSFW. You Americans are so uptight about these things. Full frontal: https://maledrakh.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/150209-reaper-bones-fire-sprite-from-77196-familiars-2-front.jpg This is the fire sprite / small elemental / atronach from the 77196 Familiars 2 pack. I really struggle with fire and flames. I do think I am getting better even though still not very good. Definately need more practice.
  22. Still not satisfied with his teeth, but he has been sitting on my desk mostly finished for several months. I've tried painting his teeth at least thrice, and disliked the results so much that I covered them back over with brown liner. I just want to move him to the "done" group. At least I get to count him for the revolutionary challenge. :)
  23. 77166: Balto Burrowell, Gnome Wizard, painted for the current Beauty pageant. I cut off the outstretched hand and rotated it to make it more metal, based on a Mantic 20mm base. Strange how a mini that is shorter than an inch goes from "well painted" and you're happy with when seen IRL to "flawed" when magnified by the cruel lens of the camera and too harsh lighting. oh well. Maybe it is the onset of advanced age screwing with both my eyesight and not-so-steady-as-they-used-to-be hands. Bah, enough whining. It is what it is.
  24. Continuing on with the Febuary challenge goals I set myself, (painting at least one of each from the following categories: Reaper Bones, Oathsworn, All Quiet of the Martian Front, Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40.000, Kings of War, Deadzone, DreadBall, Mars Attacks, Shadows of Brimstone, Sedition Wars, Drake, Grendel Productions something or other, and to finish something that currently stands around half-done on the shelf of shame), I have done a few minis over the weekend, As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. Here goes for Finish something that currently stands around half-done on the shelf of shame Sedition Wars: The Battle For Alabaster, Hexen Phaedra. Normal and infected version. Hexen will double as a coach for my Team Toasters Robot Dreadball team. Hexen Phaedra is an obvious homage to Caprica Six from Battlestar Galactica, so naturally I painted her as such. Too bad that Studio McVey messed up the scale on many of the wave 2 minis like these. They are far to small and spindly. It was certainly not the only thing Studio McVey messed up with this Kickstartered game, but I do think they were hammered a little to much in the aftermath by disgruntled customers/ backers. The game isn't that bad, it was just rushed and not tested enough, The minis are for the most part really nice. Apart from the scale issue with most of the wave 2 homage characters. Nice but too small. In hindsight, these would have been easier to paint with a white or grey undercoat rather than black. How many layers did I need to cover? Let me count the ways...nope I lost count half way through. 25mm bases, restic.
