My first painted CAV (though not my first miniature by a long shot). This was largely experimenting with a few techniques: there's a base coat of light brown, with a sponged pattern of dark brown over the top, and a toothbrush-flicked spatter of stone grey. The wash I applied somewhat muted the effect of the grey; hopefully, that won't be replicated in the Cougar I'm painting in the same pattern. The wash is going on before the grey on that one.
I finished my first bones CAV received from the early bird kickstarter. Its been years since I've painted a mech so its not quite as great of a paintjob when compared to the fantasy stuff i've been doing lately. Still, it was a joy to paint up the first member of the Black Dragon Mercs. As usual, feel free to comment. I could use the direction on how to improve my mechs.
I met my parents for dinner on Wednesday, and much to my surprise they handed me a box filled with old Minis. I mean, really old. Stuff I bought when I was a kid. So I thought I'd throw this out there, for the coolness factor, and also to see if anyone can identify these guys. First group shot - a bunch of Dragon men (I suspect they may be Dragonlance Draconians) a small dragon-like thing, and a Frost Giant with a broken weapon. Also, a robot: The Draconians's bases are stamped "Grenadier 1984," the Giant's is engraved the same, and the robot's is engraved with 1987. Second picture... did you know that Demogorgon meets Tiamat at the library on Thursdays? True fact: The Prince of Demon's base is stamped Grenadier 1984, the Queen of Dragons' is engraved with 1987. I suspect that neither of them are actually "Tiamat" or "Demogorgon," but Grenadier minis made to "coincidentally" look like them. The bookcase is unstamped on the bottom - I think it was a part of a set of some kind. Speaking of, have two side views of her I have her other wing, it just came unglued, but the tail piece is alas gone! Darkrasp, evil priest, decided to join this rather reptile-heavy party to show scale creep - Please note I'm fairly sure the Draconians are supposed to be slightly larger than human...
