  1. Apparently I never started a WIP thread for this miniature. This is Reaper's 50304: Rowena Von Graaf, sculpted by Julie Guthrie, which I started painting a long time ago. She's a fun steampunk figure. All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios. Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated. This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent
  2. This is Reaper's 59009: Mad Scientist, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. I thank Reaper for proffering Victorian Science Ladies in Big Dresses, and I am looking forward to painting her up. I am, as usual, working with Golden matte fluid acrylic paints. This is my standard priming, a thin wash of thinned-down Titanium White allowed to dry for a day then washed further with thinned-down Burnt Umber. I don't know if I've mentioned, but this is a classic Italian Renaissance priming technique. I can't remember the term, but it translates as "veil" of color and is supposed to give richness to
  3. It's a quiet morning. Mrs McCarthy sweeps the church vestibule. (77088: Townsfolk: Grandmother) Lady Frances and Lady Rebecca admire the new flower beds in the church garden. (59009: Mad Scientist and 50327: Victorian Ladies) It's a beautiful day, what could possibly go wrong? The blue dress was inspired by this painting:
  4. My first mini of 2019, she is part of a group I am painting for a steampunk/time travel game my group is playing. For inspiration I used this fashion plate, the figure on the right:
  5. Howdy, Pip, pip! Cheerio, and all that... Kev! P.S. Say no more!
  6. Howdy, I say! Kev! P.S. Tally ho!
  7. Howdy, Dress for success? Thanks for your support, Kev!
  8. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/coolminiornot/the-world-of-smog-rise-of-moloch/description A Victorian, adventure board game taking place in an alternative England where magic and technology have taken an extraordinary turn!
  9. Well, here I go again. With my tight schedule, there was no way I was going to get the Hakuna Matata diorama sculpted and painted. So I am going to paint my Coraline Thaddington sculpt. I have been wanting to paint her ever since I sculpted her. This will still be a challenge, since though the volume of modeling and painting is lower, the paint job I have in mind for her is considerably more complex than anything I have attempted before. I originally sculpted her because I was very inspired by the works of artist Sarah Ellerton, specifically, the character Anya from The Phoenix R
  10. Finally remembered to post these up. I got minibart's name for the Spring Exchange. I'd been hoping to get him since he sent me an awesome fig last year. He was looking for something Victorian and/or Steampunk. I went through a number of idea about what I wanted to do, wasted far too much time on elaborate plans, and finally settled on a slightly simpler plan, and still managed to be late sending it..... With the Lord and Dame I wanted to tie them together with some cross over of colour. Hopefully that was somewhat successful. The Lo
  11. Whew, wasn't sure I was going to get this done in time for my August RPChallenge. After doing a bunch of Sci-Fi BSRs I had a craving for something a little more old timey. I've had a box of vehicles for Empire of the Dead sitting there since the kickstarter, so though now was the time to try one. Having never painted a carriage before, or painted a horse before (unless you count mutated goblin steads, I did do a unit of Ugu's Cavalry for Clan War once) I went with the "easiest" one, with only 2 wheels and one horse. Now when I started I knew there was a driver, but I d
  12. I've been doing a lot of Sci-Fi lately, so felt like doing something a bit more...old fashioned. I have a ton (not literally, I think it was under 100 lbs....) of Empire of the Dead miniatures, a Steampunk/Victorian/Horror minis game based in 1888 London from West Wind Productions. So I took a look through the boxes and thought I'd try my hand at one of the Hansom Cabs I have. It should be fun. This will be the first resin and metal model I've done in....ummm, let's go with "some time"... This will be the first carriage I've done. And this will be the first horse I've ever done (that was
  13. Completed another couple of Malifaux models: I've never been great at freehand, but I wanted to try anyway some kind of tattoo/warpaint... Result is kinda mediocre, but overall I'm not too displeased As usual, C&C will be appreciated More pics on my blog: gabbigames.wordpress.com
  14. To save producing three new topics I decided to group them together in one thread. All these are by Westwind Minatures and are still part of the EoTD Kickstarter (yes I still have 20 to go and will do for quite some time!!) First up is another victorian gentleman, I attempted something new here and tried to paint tweed, this isn't too bad for table top standard but I would need to practice if I do this again. Next up is either a man servant or page boy, this model is shorter then most of the 28mm models. I have painted him in a simple scheme. And finally a cri
  15. Here is another completed Westwind Miniatures EoTD miniature. Here is from the Victorian Nemesis Set, and so that is why I decided to give him a nice evil look. I'm quite happy with the red cloak and the clothes. As always comments welcome.
  16. Here is a second completed Victorian Gentleman from the Empire of the Dead range. Once again this will be another citizen NPC in the game. Or he could play as an evil arch villain hiding in plain sight. As always comments welcome.
  17. Here is another completed model from the Empire of the Dead range by Westwind Miniatures. I attempted to add some detail to the waistcoat, it doesn't look too bad. The photo shows up some superglue vapour which I hadn't spotted earlier. This is going to be another NPC in the game. As always comments welcome.
  18. Here is a further model model from the EoTD Kickstarter by Westwind Miniatures. This is another generic victorian servant/gentleman to add to the NPC's for the game. As always comments welcome.
  19. Here is another of the ongoing set of Victorian characters for Empire of the Dead by Westwind Minatures. This has been painted to a good tabletop standard. I have forced myself to speed up a bit as I need to get more finshed for a game. As always comments welcome.
  20. In my continuing attempt to paint enough models for a wargame, here is a few shots of a further model from the Empire of the Dead kickstarter from Westwind Miniatures. As always comments welcome.
  21. Here is another model from the Westwind Miniatures EoTD kickstarter. I really like this chef/ cook model and think I have done a alright job on the paint job, I decided not to make his clothes spotless as I doubt hygiene was as well understood in these days gone by. I also really like the sculpt, especially the face, it looks like he is someone who really enjoys his work. As always comments or suggestions welcome.
  22. Here is a recently completed model of a victorian butler from Westwind Miniatures Empire of the Dead Kickstarter set. I am still going though these models slowly and I am still happy with the level of detail I can put on the models. The base is one of the original master I made for others out of resin. As always comments or suggestions welcome.
  23. Here is the third and final model I am posting today from the Empire of the Dead Kickstater. I am still going through these models, and I am enjoying getting them finished. This is a generic Victorian Gentleman, and can be used as part of an angry mob or bystander. As always comments welcome.
  24. In a continued attempt to clear all (some) of my models before I start on my Bones 2 delivery I have pressed on with some more prepared models. Introducing another two of the westwind models from their Empire of the Dead range. I still have quite a lot of these to paint. The eyes on these were a pain to paint, but I need to keep practising. As always comments welcome.
  25. Primed, and a messy black wash job so I can see what I'm doing. And admire my handiwork. Some basecoating in MSP Denim Blue, and Testors Silver enamel. I love Testors's enamel copper and silver, they're like dipping into liquid metal. Their other metallics, though, seem much more roughly ground. Also known as "If I screw this up there is no one to blame but myself." Was considering copper + green color scheme, but I think I'll go for silver-blue-gold. Copper might come back on the crossbow, we'll see.
