  1. This little guy will be a wedding cake topper at a friend's wedding this week. I wish I had the time, energy, and ability to do a better job, overall; it feels in many ways incomplete. But I really do like how the wing pattern and spine turned out. I really struggled painting his body, and frankly I'm hoping nobody gets around to looking at his legs and feet. He does look like a nice little fire drake from the top, I think. This was another exercise in not trying to be bigger than my britches.
  2. I wasn't originally planning to do a WIP of this guy, but after struggling with super glue and vaseline and half-cured greenstuff, I thought that it might be wise to post about it and learn all the ways I'm going about this wrong. I decided to swap two of the heads because I thought it would look more balanced, and I also decided to add wings because why not? Then, because it totally looked like I'd just hacked stuff apart and sorta glued it back together (because...that's what I did), I decided to break out my increasingly stiff greenstuff. I didn't want to wait for the GS to cure before putting brown liner on, which as you'll see later was a mistake. :P I made a sort of half-hearted attempt at scales in a couple of spots, but really all I wanted to do was smooth the join between the neck and head, so I basically just tried to smush it as flat as I could and feather the edges a bit. And here's the wings, which were 'voluntarily' donated by my extra Rauthuros. I wasn't quite sure what I was doing, so I just cut them apart and sorta...glued them on. Pinning didn't even occur to me until after the glue had already set (and I used a fair bit). I did try to scrape off the Brown Liner where I'd planned to join them to the body, but being Brown Liner, it rather stubbornly resisted both my fingernail and my sanding needle, so I shrugged and stuck them on anyways. I originally was going to just smooth the super obvious place where the wings met the body, but after I'd poked and prodded and squashed the GS into place, I decided to get...creative. That there is my super-rough first attempt at scales. It looks pretty horrid close-up, but I'm hoping that I'll be able to disguise some of that with paint. At least this way, there's some texture there that I can play with. I am actually quite pleased with how the areas closest to his spine look, though! If you squint, they look kinda scale-like! And here's the final result: The wings are lopsided, but I can't do anything about that now, and this is a just-for-fun piece anyways, so I'm not going to stress about it (though it will bug me until the end of forever, lol). The next step, after all the GS cures, will be to scrub him off again, because vaseline and paint don't mix well. And I totally did the intelligent thing in slathering him in brown liner BEFORE I'd done the conversions; there's vaseline all over that now. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  3. Merryn Elmshadow, Female Elf Thief (Reaper SKU 2590) is a classic Sandra Garrity sculpt. Other than the studded leather, I really enjoyed painting this one.
  4. I got this sweet baby on Feb 2nd, started it on Febuary 3rd. This is the first of my three Secret Special Projects for February. This is also the big lead beastie that weighs a gazillion pounds. (I am very muscular now, plan to audition as Conan) I bought it planning to match the studio model, opened it up and it said: "I want to be GREEN." I make it a policy never to argue with lead dragons when they tell me to do stuff, so green it is! Looks good in green, actually. Hope you enjoy this one, two more very cool special projects to go! Edit to add link to Project Two: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/73228-secret-project-two-ral-partha-10-500-the-red-dragon-of-krynn/
  5. Well, here's another started project. Ral Partha OOP White Dragon. You saw him before and after his dunking. Here he is rebuilt and ready for a bit more sanding, a bit more detail to the base and then priming. No great conversion or adjusting. Just a better assembly, slightly larger base (2 inches square now) and this time cleaned up a lot more. Enjoy and Stay Tuned.
  6. This guy was a test piece... I have another 2 like him and 3 female centaurs that are all going to be painted roughly the same. The base isn't done because I'm planning to actually cut them off these bases and attach them to something better later, but I don't have those bases yet so... Comments and criticism always welcome.
  7. Orrrcs! I got two reaper army packs of these bad boys, and they look awesome. One pack, 06015, only had the two Sandra Garrity orcs and not the two Bob Olley ones. Their fantastic customer service has already sorted this out for me, so a Bones orc of the same type is standing in as a stunt double to show the other one that comes in the pack while his compatriots travel by mail. But these six funtime fellows are getting some paint, and I've been looking forward to this!
  8. I still don't have replacement brushes, but I've been getting oddly useful results from my u-shaped brush and managed to heal a W&N Series 7 00 enough to help the terrible brush along. I'd rather fight them a bit than take a painting break, because I've been going gangbusters since about mid-december. I might fall out of the groove if I take a few days off. Since it's been a while since I last did a WIP, and as this one is very fresh and untouched, I thought I'd post her up as I went along. I think you can see the rather large mold lines on the inside of her shield. That's going to be trouble, but I think it's worth it. I'm always a sucker for a nice Sandra Garrity fightin' lady. I've already been picking at it, so she should be ready for primer soon.
  9. I was going for a more sinister looking fleshtone with this one. I've done it in green, purple, and finally this one. I am quite please with how he came out. Also, I am still getting used to actually using the metallics from the bones paint line. They are quite bright, even after being hit was dullcoat. I love the sheen in them. Hope you enjoy, and as always C&C is always welcome. CAH
  10. I'm playing Hoard of the Dragon Queen, and apparently we need a dragon. So I'm painting the Shadow Dragon that's been in my "Box of 20" unpainted minis as a blue dragon. Last night I boiled, cleaned and glued the wings (because why not? Oh, ok... THAT's why not) and slopped on blue liner/medium. I will probably slop on some more liner to actually line. Colors I'm planning on using. -Interference Blue (Yes, this dragon has been Pingo'd). Skin:Dragon Blue (!), Frost Blue, Blue Flame, Ghost White, Magic Blue (VGC), Denim Blue Plates/Bone: Handle Wood (SW), Bone White (VGC), Pearl White, Creamy Ivory. That may be more than I actually use, though. No mold line prep.
  11. My mom got this mini in Secret Sophie I believe. I swiped it from her as she returns the favor by swiping ones I like to paint for herself. Standard in this house... More phone pics. She is the one where drybrushing finally worked and I can do it with only minor mishaps.
  12. This was painted tonight, in about 3 hours from washed to clear coat, during an online painting session with some pretty cool people. We do this almost every week, just in case you might be interested. At any rate, I wasnt sure what I wanted to do with the staff, so I decided to go for a kind of living staff. I decided to paint it like I did the tentacles on his face. Overall, I'm happy with how he came out, and I think he's going to look good on the table. I'm sure, the model itself, would have been enough to send my players in panic mode. With a little color, it should be full fledged hysterics. Mwuhahaha!! Also, this is the first time I tried wet blending on the cloak and robe. Still trying to get the hang of it. Enjoy! CAH
  13. From my drop in on London, I also bought a unicorn. Hell yeah. I decided to do a classical pretty unicorn paint, and I had all these grand ideas of soft blue hued whites and stuff... And it all went horribly wrong because I drybrush a lot and am less than amazing at blends. Partly white blends. I actually ended up just outright covering up all the Vallejo paint on here (on the mane, tail, and legs) and just going to town instead with my usual GW paints, and then tried out my new Soulstone blue over all that. I was pleasantly surprised. I ended up putting in loads of shade on him which I then tried to drybrush back out, but didn't get the gradual change I wanted overall. He's very tabletop, but... To be honest, girly stuff isn't my thing, haha. I like monsters way more. Perhaps I'll buy another and then try and paint that one as the evil twin =P So yeah... Unicorn! My photos are grossly inconsistent atm :S Paints used... Citadel: -Whie Scar -Fenrisian Grey -Drakenhof Nightshade -Ulthuan Grey -Soulstone Blue -Gehenna's Gold -Auric Armor Gold -Abaddon Black -Pink Terror -Seraphim Sepia -Temple Guard Blue And some Vallejo Sky Blue. Urk.
  14. This is Reaper's "Dara, Psionic Warrior" sculpted by Sandra Garrity. I primed her with Titanium White, then washed with Burnt Umber to show details. I changed a little from my usual pattern in that I left off the Burnt Umber from her sword since I wish it to glow later and for that a pure white undercoating works best. I've painted her face and skin with mixes of Titanium White, Burnt Umber, Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna, and Red Oxide. I washed black over her hair, thinking I would paint it silver later, but I like the look so much I may keep it.
  15. I painted this up with my Old School Grenadier minis because I've never felt quite right with all-male parties. She's honorary Old School, although a modern Ironwind metals recasting. In old Ral Partha she was #03-107, but in Ironwind Metals' new catalogue she is #61-093. She is very small. Here she is compared to a Reaper figure (02881: Dara, Psionic Warrior); both Ciera and Dara were sculpted by Sandra Garrity: Anyhow, she is a lovely sculpt and I enjoyed bringing her to life. The original WIP was here, then I finished her on the Memorial Day Weekend Paint Binge.
  16. The Pillar of Evil! Should be a fun terrain piece for a wargame or RPG... This was painted in the "Cavern Stone" triad from GameDecor's PaintWorks line of terrain paint, then washed with Army Painter green tone ink. Pretty quick and simple. The base is a 1" square Hirst Art's tile done with the same paints, part of a grab bag of tiles Bonwirn gave me a couple Secret Sophies ago.
  17. As some of you know, I'm working on a local convention, MarCon as their Guest Relations coordinator.

  18. Hey look I finished him! Or her. No offense to Bathalians but I can't tell the difference and don't much care. Anyway. Not the greatest paint job ever but I think it came out pretty decently, and by my standards it actually went really quick. Probably under 4 hours total. Comments and criticism appreciated, as always.
  19. Here's the super quick speed paint I did for my D&D buddy tonight, about 3 hours start to finish. For the purposes of our D&D game, this is Belatos the Aasimar Druid. Figure: Tolan, Male Druid - Reaper SKU #02692 Sculptor: Sandra Garrity C&C welcomed and appreciated! Thanks for looking
  20. Bregnor Hefthammer is the older brother of Feanon Hefthammer and Norim Hefthammer. Unlike his sibilings, he retired from a life of adventure and returned to his mountain home to assist with its rebuilding. A devout follower of Moradin, Bregnor is never without his hammer, though he as since put away his armor. He has a distinct love for ale and crafting, and on more than one occasion, tried to combine the two with little success. Bregnor (front) Bregnor (back) I tried to go for a brassy/gold look with the hammer. Overall I think he came out pretty good. His clothing was intentionally kept simple. The hardest part for me was the eyes, which I could not seem to get right. I am still trying, but I may hang it up on this one. Side note, I think I need some new brushes. Hope you like him, and as always CC is welcome! CAH
  21. This is Sandra Garrity's 02075, Katarina the Invoker. Technically she is from the set 03375: DHL Classics: Female Wizards, which seems to be different only in that the figures have much smaller bases. To increase stability I glued her to a fender washer. This is a figure I started a long while ago and finished only recently as part of my Conga Line of Doom. I wanted to refine her further, especially the tortoiseshell cat at her feet, but time is short and minis need playing with.
  22. Pillar of Evil Sculpted by Sandra Garrity The innovative Ub3r sent me this little guy. I decided the base was not good enough. SO I filed it down as best I could then, as you can see, pinned it to a 20mm MDF base. After that I used greenstuff and filled in the gaps. I did leave a large enough gap I could sculpt the greenstuff into a suitable platform. Finally, Primed and washed. I work on this little guy in-between drying periods. I figure I can use him as an interesting marker for wargaming and for all sorts of things in fantasy/sci-fi 25mm gaming. :)
  23. As with Katarina the Invoker, this is really from the set 03375: DHL Classics: Female Wizards. The figure is not quite as shown in 02115 as the figures in 03375 have tiny bases, barely larger than their clothes, which is why I have attached them to fender washers. She is also part of my year end Conga Line of finishing up half-done minis. If I didn't do something like this I would probably fuss over her forever. Sandra Garrity is a wonderful sculptor for women with lots of personality.
  24. Here is my Balto Burrowell, painted up for a character of mine in Pathfinder. He is a gnome Sorcerer named Pipperton Bubblebrook from Absolom. His closest friend is his familiar, Bucky the badger who was inspired by a honey badger. I'm sorry for the blurry picture, I am still working on my camera foo, and a lightbox. If I take a better picture, I will update it. Pipperton Bucky As always, thanks for looking and I hope you like it! C&C welcome. CAH
