  1. I've had this mini around for a few years now and finally decided to paint her once I was more comfortable pinning. I think she's one of the best pin jobs that I've done to date :) and I thought it was relatively easy :) i really enjoyed painting her. She's just an NPC for D&D so she didn't take but a few hours to paint. I have a queue of figures to paint so I wanted to get her done before I started on the others for an upcoming show. I used her as an experiment of sorts. One of the miniatures I'm painting is from Stormtroopers (Boudicea) and she has "fiery red hair". I concocted a mix for red hair and want to know what you all think of it? I highlighted it up to white, too, at the highest tips. Mix used: dark flesh (base coat) dark flesh + yellow + dab of titanium white (mid coat) dark flesh + yellow + titanium white (highlight) titanium white (brightest highlight) I then did a brown ink wash on it after it was all dry. The other experiment I used was with "snow effects" which I used sand as the material (I didn't have any snow effects on hand) and then painted that a very light gray-blue and then highlighted over with titanium white. I'm not sure how I like it, it's the first time I did it, but any recommendations on how to do it would be fantastic. I apologize that the photos are a little washed out, these are actually the second/third set I have taken after doing a black wash over the armor to bring out the lines more and then re-highlighting. I've highlighted most to white, but it's hard to see that in the photos. C&C welcome :D

    Patrick Keith Tutorial

    Patrick Keith has published an amazing tutorial on his web site dealing with sculpting a sword on an armature. Amazing step by step instructional. You should check it out. http://www.patrickkeith.com/2013/07/sculpting-linna-sword-session-1.html
  3. Chaos Wars Miniatures :: Leonaran Dragonmaster Purchased 1991, Painted, at DragonCon. One of the few minis I've ever purchased painted by another artist. More pictures available on SpringPad Listing. Any assistance with finding out this one's origins would be appreciated.
  4. Found this one as well among my un-based minis and proceeded to base them. I recall when he was purchased (early 90s), just don't recall what system they are from. Any assistance with finding out this one's origins would be appreciated. Thanks to mikem91 for figuring out my last one.

    Female warrior...Reaper 02352

    A friend of mine from California is a player in my RPG group. Comes into town about once a month...she loved the looks of this figure and asked me to paint it up as her adventure character (but not as a vampire). This is the commission piece that I painted for her. This is a playing piece (only when the player is in town to play).
  6. This is one of my RPG group playing/gaming pieces. Her name is (Sheba) and is a huntress in the game. I tried to paint her in the subdued natural earthly colors of (skins & furs). I gave her a very subtle scar from the eye bottom to the mouth corner (don't know if you can see it or not)...it is a trophy that she has from her past...I submitted this figure to the Inspiration Gallery and have heard nothing.

    Harlequin...

    This is another miniature figure that a hobby shop asked me to paint for them as a promotion figure for their sci-fi painting contest. It was not an entry in the contest. I enjoyed painting this figure...it allowed me great artistic freedom & creation.
  8. Here is my latest. I had this one based and primed sitting on my table since spring of last year and just now got around to painting her. I tried a few color schemes before settling on this one. The photos were taken prior to adding a few brighter highlights to her skin, but other than that, this is pretty much how she looks finished. This was one of the toughest sculpts I have painted for some reason, but I am happy with the end results. This figure proves that I still have some areas of blending technique that I need to master. All in all though, not a bad miniature for one that is going for sale on eBay. Some of you all might think it strange that I really do not collect or display my own miniatures, but either sell them all on eBay, paint them for commission, give them as gifts or painted for the forum exchanges. The only miniatures I have on my display shelf are ones received in exchanges form other Reaper members. Since I do not game anymore and I already have collected way too much stuff over the years, I figure that I have the photos for memories or a portfolio, so I am good. C&C welcome.

    02025: Kain Swiftblade

    This miniature was painted for use as a PC model. Unfortunately my work transfered me away from my players and so I had no motivation to finish the mini until I started on my current spree of painting.
  10. Here is Bogorislav the Mad, my interpretation of Boris Mingla sculpted by Werner Klocke. I only added a toupee on this one. Again, I mixed both NMM and real metallic paint to continue my exploration of this combination of techniques. I hope you’ll like it. Comments and critiques are welcome.
  11. Here is my interpretation of Boris the Evil Fighter sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I converted it, repositioning his gladius upwards and adding some hair on is bald head. His left arm was also slightly repositioned frontward to receive a Death Knight shield on which I added the two smaller horns. I decided to call him Eusebe the Sturdy in homage to an elderly neighbour who turned 98 years old lately. I painted the armor and shield using brass metallic color and a mix of blue and silver over a black primer. Comments and critics are very welcome.

    02857, Gavin Warrior Thief

    Here is Gavin the clumsy weekend Warrior Thief. He was sculpted by Bobby Jackson back in 2004. He was a real blast to paint, it took me about 10 hours but I was able to practice nmm. This miniature is a two part model. And, while I was preparing him, I was inspired to make a diorama. I assembled him at an angle compared to the regular fashion way, like if he was trying to avoid a blow. Later, I might add some ols on his armor but I first need to design the diorama to see from where will be coming the light source. More to come…

    14352: Unforgiven, Crusader Grunt

    This mini is titled 14352: Unforgiven, Crusader Grunt, but I swear on the blister it said Templar Knight or something. This guy was sitting on the rack at my LGS for months, and I felt sorry for him. So I bought him. I originally painted him up for one of the PCs in my OD&D game. But the character died before I finished painting D: This is my most recent mini, so please give me all your comments and criticism you can spare! Painted with Vallejo, he seems a bit dark to me. It was REALLY HARD to paint the decals on his shoulder and on his front because the consistency of thinned paint is just too watery and goes into the cracks instead of on the ridges. Sorry I couldn't get you a good camera shot from other angles. Tips truly appreciated. MG

    Mouseling Warrior

    Hi there folks! So yeah, I am new. Not to miniature painting on a whole, but to posting any of my work(s) for thumbs up and criticism. I have always just painted for myself or friends. I like to paint for table top RPG, and Wargamming. Long story short, I took a pretty hefty break from mini painting but got back in to the game when I started playing AD&D again about two years ago. I have always loved painting more than the people and players I know. So, after getting hooked on Miniature Mentor, and spending over two hundred dollars on painting supplies, I am painting every day! All that backstory nonsense aside. Here are the images of my latest Reaper mini. I had a ton of fun painting him. I made the rocks and moss on my own, using modeling materials. The round base is from P3, so it is 30mm I think. He is standing on a black Tamiya paint cap so he would be in the middle of the photo. Any and all comments or criticism are welcome. I will post others soon. I erm...ran out of bases though, so I need to order some. lawl (Pictures cropped on recommendation) Putting a Pixcafe link here. So you can see the images in a bigger resolution if you care to. The link goes to these exact images only. I am not pushing anything. Promise!
