  1. Here is a quick WIP for two of the members of the village mob, the third was added to the EU/UK box of goodwill earlier in the year. The models were cleaned up and based with some additional sand/ grit around the outside. The models were then given a coat of Brush On Primer. A coat of tanned skin was then given to all exposed flesh and the metal items were give a base coat of black. I then proceeded to put the eyes in place and attempted to use some colour, the pictures may not be that clear but they have blue eyes. Finally a coat of flesh wash was done prior to any highlights. The plan is to see how far I can get these before the new year, as I have two young children I intend to have a quiet night in painting. These could either be the first models of the new year or the last ones of 2015. As always comments welcome.
  2. Here are my first complete models of 2016, and as luck would have it they are two of the Townfold VIII pack. The third was sent away in a box of goodwill. First up is the male figure, not sure about the hair, but he will do for tabletop quality. I need to practice more blond hair. Here is the female mob member as well, as before painted and based to a reasonable tabletop quality. As always comments or suggestions welcome.
  3. 03692 Halloween Tree by Jason Wiebe 03233 Townsfolk Children Little Boy by Bobby Jackson 01-095 Jabberwock from IronWind Metals "Jabberwocky" is a nonsense poem written by Lewis Carroll and included in his 1871 novel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, a sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. 'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe; All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe. "Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!" He took his vorpal sword in hand: Long time the manxome foe he sought— So rested he by the Tumtum tree, And stood awhile in thought. And as in uffish thought he stood, The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame, Came whiffling through the tulgey wood, And burbled as it came! One, two! One, two! and through and through The vorpal blade went snicker-snack! He left it dead, and with its head He went galumphing back. "And hast thou slain the Jabberwock? Come to my arms, my beamish boy! O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!" He chortled in his joy. 'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe; All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe.
  4. Just wanted to show off the first step of my townspeople conversion. I was prepping all my duplicate townspeople (I have two of all of them from Bones I) for painting. Then I started looking at them and decided it would be more fun if they were all a little more unique. I'd had what reaper calls "book" from the boneyard but really looks like a scroll (P14490B) for a while since I was actually debating converting a different miniature with it. Then staring at my undertaker I decided he could be holding a sheet of paper just as well. Not sure what will be on it yet, coffin dimensions? Burial plot? List of names of deceased? Then once I'd taken his lantern off I figured it could just as well go in the other hand of pitchfork guy. Then I was wracking my brains and saw the sweeping lady and thought, why not turn her broom into a shephard's hooked staff? A quick lop off of my spare Ezren (yes I have a lot of spares) some chopping of the base of her broom and boom, she's ready to be a shepard. Anyways, hope you folks like, I always like seeing what other folks have done so thought I would post!
  5. This is the most extensive modification I have done to a figure. I sculpted her dress and filled in the wing holes in her hair. I also have the original, so if I want some skin practice I will paint her up with the same hair color.
  6. A fellow player in a Reign of Winter game has been "tooling around"* with an unpainted strumpet miniature. I offered to paint it if she told me what she should look like, and so I was given an unpainted Bones mini and a quick watercolor sketch to work off of. This is the result, after a couple hours of work! Overall, I'm pretty happy with her! She is not great, but I'm improving. This is also some of my better work on hair, ever. That Jessica Rich DVD from the kickstarter is starting to pay off. However, I still did just a quick paint up (probably 2 hours...) and the quality needs to be higher. Things I know did not go as planned: The blending on the dress was incredibly subtle--not sure what I was thinking here, exactly, but the contrast should be way higher. The blending on the hair highlights looked so much better before it dried. Oops. So mental note: esp. for a display piece, let it dry and then really check it out before you seal it. The transitions are way too abrupt as it stands. General smoothness of blending everywhere could be improved. Still on broccoli base. Sad. Any additional C&C? Beyond the paint scheme, I suppose, since I'm working with a player's desired colors, anyway. * as the kids would say it ** ** back in the 50s, maybe... Note: this is a repost! It looks like three posts, two of which I finished writing, all ended up with the same post ID, which caused all sorts of mayhem. Attachments only worked on one of these posts at a time and it looks like all of the tags got thrown together. This should fix the problem...
  7. In the interest of expanding my collection of painted miniatures I decided to paint up one of my Hasslefree miniatures. I need to finish up her highlights on her arms and blend a little more. Here is where I'm starting the WIP from.
  8. 03165 Townsfolk IX Town Guard by Jim Johnson and Kevin Williams completed 3/5.
  9. Got out my paints again. I am switching from Games Workshop paints to Army Painter. I bought myself a full set for Christmas. I am having trouble getting used to the thicker paint. Strumpet Blacksmith
  10. Right before I was distracted by Bones II's arrival, I did get quite a lovely set of minis from Dragon Bait. I think they have wonderful potential, and I wish them the best. I never thought I'd see a crowdsourced project arrive at my doorstep less than a month after it ended. To start, a group shot:
  11. 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.
  12. A speed paint, only took me 5 hours...um that's fast for me. :-) Well, 5 hours to paint him and a month to get him based. ;^) He's a little sparkly in places. While I was working on him, I accidently rinsed my brush out in my metallics water cup. Oops. The figure and base were from the Box of Goodwill. Thanks BoG :-) Thanks for looking. As always, C&C welcome.
  13. while painting with my niece and nephew their mother decided she wanted to paint something, here is the result. she descibed them as a post apocolypse family with a slight anime influence once she finished painting
  14. Here we go with another bones townsfolk, the blacksmith. I decided not to clutter up the base with much as this is apparently his workspace. I did put a damaged shield to show his current WIP. Hope you like it. I also went with a borrowed camera to test it versus mine. To anyone who has looks at any of my past post will realize the difference in quality of the photo. This will also better represent my current skill without the blurriness to hide behind. Thanks for viewing and C&C are always welcome.
  15. Next Project in my bones journey is the blacksmith. Painted up the eyes. Decided to try for a brown eye color with RMS intense brown. And for those who might be curious I used a Raphael #1 to paint the eyes, except for the white dot. Then I put down a base coat of tanned flesh. Thanks for any advice or comments in advance.
  16. Think this is my last post for this last batch of photos, thanks for looking this week at all my stuff! I went in to painting my townsfolk with one goal, to use more colors. In some places I succeeded, others not so much. I ended up using a lot of glazing for the bigger cloth areas, I think I may need to hit it all with another coat of matte sealer now that I have seen how some of the pictures came out though. Pretty shiny here and there unfortunately. First up, the chorus shots: Then the individual cast photos... Thanks for hanging in there all week with me!
  17. Here's what I entered into The Ghoul, the Bad, and the Ugly contest. I spent a lot of time on the base, making the tree from wire and Milliput, making the Tombstone from Milliput, and adding in a noose. I went with a monochrome idea that certain areas which are darker material in real life would have a darker blue in "moonlit." So, it has both the Templar blue and Twilight blue triads in it. Also, for my OSL effect, I tried out the idea that the lantern lets you see the real colors of the clothes and scenery where it hits. Finally, I added some 90% Sun yellow and 10% Lava Orange OSL from the lantern. I have a WIP too, but when I try to insert links/URLs, It always freezes my browser! Enjoy.
  18. This is a small diorama/vignette for the Ghoul, Bad, & Ugly contest for Halloween. The figures used are 77143: Townsfolk: Undertaker, and 77161: Ghost King. This was my first attempt at OSL, and I'm pretty proud of it. The undertaker is a great figure; he has really sharp features that make it easy to paint an expressive face. WIP here.
  19. Hopefully one part of a small diorama for the Halloween contest, here's a WIP for the Undertaker. Thus far, he's painted as if lit by moonlight; a much stronger OSL will come from the lantern in a bit. So the back and face are pretty much done, but the front needs much more work.
  20. Another day, another bones. The innkeeper started out as a study in painting a darker red. After that, it was just a matter of picking some colors for the rest. One of his eyes was imperfectly cast but I didn't feel like fighting it. Once I got something reasonable for it I just made the other eye match, so he's looking a bit off to the side. There's probably a table of pesky adventurers over there that will end up starting a fight. A tiny WIP for anyone interested.
  21. Started working on my pile-o-bones. Didn't get much work done on it except base coated the skin and painted up the eyes. So I took a quick phone photo. My lighting setup is designed more figures setting on the surface. So the lighting is shining up rather than straight on. Creating some fake shadowing of the skin.
  22. The prospect of painting a mother and two kids wasn't all that appealing to me. So I got creative and actually had a lot of fun with this one.
  23. This guy is an experiment in speed-painting using Vallejo Game Inks over a sprayed, graduated undercoat. Everything except the metallics, the torch flame and the base is painted in the inks, without any additional shading or highlighting. They're very useful for getting instant shading, and because they're both transparent and fairly intensely coloured, they don't fill in detail as thinned paints do. The range of colours is fairly limited, but all the basics are covered. The figure is Bones 77140: Townsfolk: Village Rioter, who will, no doubt, do sterling service as a lowly-paid torch-bearer. Because I wanted to see just how quickly I could knock him out to a decent tabletop gaming-piece standard, I haven't done anything about the mould-lines, nor the way he's toppling over backwards. For dungeoneering service, he could probably do with having the top half of his pitchfork replaced with a ten foot pole.
  24. Oh Alice, how far you have fallen. I didn't mean to paint her like Alice, it just happened.
  25. Here's another version of 77084:Townsfolk: Innkeeper. This time there's less dirt, but a lot more blood. He could be the town butcher, or doctor, or torturer — the possibilities aren't endless!
