  1. Got this cute little fellow in the mail the other day. Never painted anything this big, and wanted to show my progress and experiences. First I glued him together. Was really surprised about the fact that it wasn't actually necessary to use glue, yet I did it just in case. Then applied some green stuff in the cracks. The black stain on the base is me testing the rumor about washes not sticking to bones. And that was true. Luckily the rumor about mixing dish soap in the paint, to fix it, was also true. Never painted with dish soap before, so that was.. interesting. So then I covered him in a basecoat of gloss varnish, before I painted white over the green stuff, and gave him a nice wash of dark, purple ink. Once that was almost dry, I started adding a dark blue wash: Painted in the flesh, bones and eye. Also applied a drybrush of dark blue: One more drybrush and pondering on how to continue the wings: Edit: This capable young lady will be the rider:
  2. Here's one of the things I was working on before I came out to [CLASSIFIED]. Enigma's Forgotten Warrior. (Liberal use of Pumpkin Orange in his man-skirt.) As always, C&C welcome!
  3. This zombie comes from Enigma miniatures, Zombie horde (5):
  4. And the last one of the Undead Regiment. The Mummy Warrior. Another great vintage mini from Grenadier ( noticed I'm fond of those did you?).
  5. The Champion and some of his warriors ( I think I posted one of them already separately.)
  6. And the archers. These are from Mirliton ( I think). They are slightly larger than the original Grenadier ones
  7. And more Zombies ( they come in large numbers, can't help it ).
  8. Again two more ( tired yet of this Undead invasion?). Ghost is from Harlequin, Zombie from Grenadier.
  9. Two more members of the horde. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60959-undead-regiment-in-a-swamp-mixed-manufacturers/ The one with the twohanded axe is from Grenadier. The one with axe and shield is probably from Harlequin, Though I'm not exactly sure. He's been around for years EDIT: I found him, He is actually from Mirliton. Newer cast.
  10. Three more from the Undead Regiment. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60959-undead-regiment-in-a-swamp-mixed-manufacturers/ These are from Otherworld Miniatures. Very nice detailed mini;s. I painted the snake symbol as a freehand again. And again reds and or purples as the Vampire Queen's Heraldry. Enjoy ( I hope).
  11. The Command Group. Carrying the Battle Banner. Mummy Captain, Ghoul Drummer and Zombie Banner Bearer.
  12. One more from my Undead Regiment, http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60959-undead-regiment-in-a-swamp-mixed-manufacturers/ The Barbarian Zombie, Made by Grenadier.
  13. Two more of the horde, These were made by the now deceased Harlequin company. Again the snake and purple / red colours. Swamp based, water effects are Vallejo Still Water. Enjoy.
  14. Here is the Vampire Queen herself. She has a Magic Sword guarded by her Crow familiar. Her faithful undead servant lights the way. I tried a bit of OSL on the servant, my first try. I don't think it worked out that well, but you gotta try right? The familiar and sword are from Reaper, pack X. The Vampire and Servant are from the Freebooter range, sculpted by Werner Klocke. Sorry about the quality of some pics, still struggling with the camera.
  15. So I finished the Undead Regiment. Background story.. the Vampire Queen lost a big battle, fled to a swamp/jungle area. Subdued the swampfolk and now faces a rebellion. Some swamp creatures follow her, others oppose her. Here is the full regiment. Mixed Manufacturers. Mixed types of Undead. I will post them separatly or in smaller groups for better pics of them all. I will try not to flood the forum, so today the regiment and the first solo/smaller groups. The rest will follow shortly. The Vampire Queens heraldry is red and purple so all the Undead have this colours somewhere. Also as a sign she is mistress of the swamp, her heraldry has a snake in it, variations are found on the shields and banner. Now the horde:
  16. I wanted to share this mini. It's among my top ten favorite miniatures that I have gotten. Just so morbid and horrible. In the style of the Braindead movie. :) Linked offsite due to a nipple showing. See it here.
  17. Well, I finished my first Bones 2 mini. He's pretty cool, and fun to paint, but not a particularly tidy paintjob which I think is largely due to inactivity on my part (plus some sub-par lighting, but it's a poor workman who blames his tools). Got to get a lot more practice in for the ReaperCon open! I'd really like to see more variants of undead gunslingers, too. A whole gang of these guys could be a lot of fun for a "Weird West" skirmish game!
  18. "And it's so easy when you're evil This is the life, you see The Devil tips his hat to me I do it all because I'm evil And I do it all for free Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need." -Voltaire (the modern mucian, not the 17th Century writer) "When You're Evil." So there was something about Gauntfield that really attracted me. It wasn't just that he looked evil, but that he looked so damn happy about it. There was something very joyful about the sculpt - that and the lines of action on it really made me want to paint it. So I did. In particular I wanted to do him up in very "autumn" colors - a lot of varying browns, a lot of red, and a bit of orange. I took a number of pictures from a few different angles: Incidentally, the spots on the underside of his hat in picture 2 was a bit of the metallic that got there. I covered it after the pictures, but it wasn't worth taking a new one, I think. Questions, comments, and criticisms welcome!
  19. Okay, this is dumb, but I'm gonna do it anyway. 1. When I am working on something "important," that is, "something worth taking time to make it artful, as opposed to tabletop quality," I like to warm up first. I take a little time to paint up something to tabletop quality, or slap a coat of paint on a plastic army man, something like that. Work out the finger joints, get the eyes tuned up. 2. My beloved is crazy about bead shops. The way I am about used bookstores? She is about little independent bead stores. And sometimes I find some things I like, too. In this case, it was little sugar skull beads, Calaveras, symbols of the Mexican Dia de los Muertes, the Day of the Dead. And an idea began to gel in my mind... Each skeleton is equipped with a bead for shield or prop, and a poorly made putty hat. This originally started as a silly little thing... I have WAY too many Bones, and originally, I was just warming up and doing simple things, like paintin' Skellies. And naturally, it got out of hand... ...but durned if I don't kinda LIKE 'em. They're far from my best work, but that's kind of one of the reasons I DO like 'em... they remind me of my childhood, wandering in the mercados de calle in Mexico, looking over all the bizarre handmade merchandise for sale to the gringos. It makes me feel like I'm looking into some kind of parallel universe where D&D was invented twenty years earlier, and the Mexican markets were catering to an entirely different brand of customer... the miniatures freak. Don't judge. Forty years ago, you could find this exact same sort of thing, except instead of 28mm plastic skeletons, it was 1:1 taxidermized frogs playing little musical instruments. For all I know, those frogs still wait for purchasers... Now I kinda wanna do a proxy army, if I can come up with enough Mexican flavored inspiration to do a whole series of individual figures. Lord knows I have enough skellies..... and yes, that's semigloss clear coat. Still waiting for it to quit snowing so I can put the flat coat on...
  20. So, remember this? I was going to throw up a bunch of monster pictures. I kind of got derailed a bit by real life, but since I've recently painted some undead, I thought I'd show another branch of the Evil Army. :) I think I'll post a mini and a link until I've got the current lot, then do a group shot. First, some real old ones. Here's a mini I painted way back when in the 90s. Not a terrible job, I think, this is the "Ghoul Warrior." Now lets link one of the first ones I've done in my recent come back to the hobby, the Ghost King. Oh, look, it doesn't have a product # tag. I'll add that. ;) More to come!
  21. Just a couple of creepy minis I've been working on between other things (Rope guy was painted up a couple of months ago, Wire guy last week). Didn't put too much time or effort into either of them, but I think they turned out really good. Comments and criticisms are, as always, most appreciated.
  22. And this is my regiment of Undead I'm working on. This is the Vampire Queen ( or maybe just her sister I haven't decided yet). She conquered a swamp, so she got an army of Undead and all kinds of swamp creatures. Right now she has to deal with an uprising of some of the swamp dwellers. Here she ( or sis) leads her regiment of mixed undead warriors to battle. All in her heraldry of reds and purples, with the snake symbol to show she owns the swamp.
  23. I painted this one up as a Nightmare from Magic the Gathering.. Well..somewhat. Part of my Undead collection, substitute for a Fell Bat. These are older pics, don't show the shadows that well...
  24. This was one of my earlier Necromancers. I love this model. A great sculpt from Rob Ridolfi.
  25. And here is the Cyclops belonging to the same Swamp Based Undead Army. I will not post all minis at once. Since I got accidently banned I'll have to repost all I painted.. Oh well.
