  1. I'm waiting as patiently as I can for my Bones order to get here... In the meantime, I'm practising with a bunch of minis I have kicking around from a brief (and very ungood) attempt at painting minis back in 2009/2010. I was digging around in my stash last night and found some barely-started Black Ark Corsairs. I've included two of them. The one on the right of the picture is untouched, exactly as I left it 5.5 years ago. (By my standards of the day, the bits that are painted are actually very well done....) The one on the left of the picture has seen a bit of a touch-up. I put a basic gr
  2. New rthread for a new month. I'm still determined to clear my painting queue this year and doing these WIP and getting C&C from everyone really motivates me to keep pushing through. So on to the fun. I was stuck for a few days deciding what to start with so I grabbed a few bones from my collection to get my gears going. First up is Goldar. I had started this guy a while ago in metal but lost motivation after his axe snapped and I had a difficult time keeping it reattached. But I've always been fond of the figure and thought it had a lot of character. I did take some WIP pics but they
  3. Here we are with the crazy WIP of how Slaying: Monday came to be. Be warned, this is very intensive and picture heavy. Show-off set up by CW here. First off, it's a bit of an inside joke between those of us who frequent the Randomness Thread(s). Chaoswolf (rping his wolf) and me (rping a coffee chugging barbarian) have set forth on an epic quest to slay the vile "Monday" who ruins their weekends. I set forth on my own quest to make the scene and used the White Dragon Tavern (as Flamehawke's establishment) complete with a wanted poster for Monday (who we don't have any idea what
  4. Been working on a few things today, the only one I can show since I'm doing my Summer Exchange at the same time is this guy who represents my D&D Group's Goliath Barbarian "Drhogath". Figure: Loratham, The Lost and Then Found Manufacturer: Enigma Miniatures Series: Massive Darkness SKU: ENM3029 Sculptor: Raúl García Latorre Size: 38mm to the eyes, 40mm to the top of the head Material: Metal Here you can see I had already put him together as his weapon is attached at the wrists (I pinned and superglued them followed by liquid green stuff). His leg is also super glued on a
  5. I think these are what's next for me to practice on. Only way to get better is to keep putting paint to mini!
  6. For posterity, as he's already finished I'm posting up this thread to show my WIP pics I took of him. I finished this guy up late Friday night/early Saturday morning for one of my D&D buddies, here's the WIP of him. Total time taken about 5-6 hours, calling it right at about TableTop + for me. Figure: Sir Conlan, Crusaders Sergeant, Reaper SKU #14037 Sculptor: Bobby Jackson Material: Metal Show-off Thread Black primed it all. Used Red Liner to get a deep rich red going for the shadows and base of the cloak. Also got his face done here and little itty bitty eyes placed
  7. 03698: Tengu Rogue by Derek Schubert This miniatures was done for the miniature Summer Exchange 2015 for Marineal. I tried a new masking technique with this one and used yellow (instense yellow) to back the bands. Colors in, now time for shading The base are two wood disks of different size bought from Hobby Lobby. I then glued them together and used a hole saw to crave out the spot for the MDF base. Greenstuff and sand. Made the large plant and log by hand.
  8. With most everyone having received or receiving in the next few days, I'd like to open up a thread for EVERYONE in a Group/Open WIP thread. Although I won't be doing mine until after the current projects are off my desk with time constraints, I can see quite a few of us really wanting to paint these up. This is open to EVERYONE and ALL the new DSM Stephanie Law Masterworks figures. Feel free to post up your WIP here and most importantly... HAVE FUN!! P.S. Let us keep chatter to a minimum and only about these figures.
  9. The other day I introduced a friend to mini painting. This was the one that I worked on. The photo showed me a few spots I'd missed that were invisible to me by eye.
  10. While I was painting my Barros & Tempest exchange mini I snapped a few pics to do a WIP with. I may have been overenthusiastic to start and a little forgetful towards the end, but I think I captured the bulk of the process. My plan is to post the images in bulk, so while it'll be broken up into a few posts I should have it all posted after lunch. I cropped and resized the images down to a height of 1000px to keep the filesize under control, but you can still see plenty of gory details once you open them in the image viewer. To start, this is what Reaper sends you as part of the Borro
  11. I'm just getting started on this, posting a new thread to motivate me to stay on top of things. Internet is a bit slow today, so hopefully I'm not straying too far from the new guidelines. I'll post pictures when my internet is better The Orc Berseker will be an experinent in the Ollie Kickflip layering/blending method... so the reverse of my other orcs. I'm also using different colours for the skin - a more olive-y scheme. I'm going to base him the same way as my other orcs, all at the same time, so I'll probably do a show-off thread with all of them. The Tiik warrior will be a t
  12. Today, I'm going to try to get this guy painted up. I have the entire day/evening to do so and I need to get it done before Saturday so I can give it to one of my D&D buddies who is going to use it as a PC in another game (a small commission and I'm giving him a discount as a friend). He's requested it be a bit above tabletop with a weapon swap (so Tabletop+ is what I'm going for). I want to try to get it painted all up in 4-5 hours. Name: Shoanti Barbarian Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures SKU: 60115 Sculpted by: Gene Van Horne I've already got him on his base, primed up, and wea
  13. So the theme of today is "Does SigmaOne need a highlighting intervention?" I started this guy a couple of weeks ago, mostly because I didn't care about the figure that much (at first) and I haven't done a mini in a while, so I wanted something to brush-up with. Now I care enough that I want it too look decent. The skin is (was?) intended to be complete, aside from cleaning up its border. I felt pretty good about the highlighting and shading of the skin the day I did it. Coming back to it two weeks later I see a few things that certainly should be touched up, but I'm wondering whether or not i
  14. Ok, Rather than Have 4-5 WIP's running at once, I decided to combine several in one. Also a (probable) vain attempt to force myself to try to get projects done more quickly. So here are the model's I intend to work on. Those I've already started: Those I plan to start:
  15. 14391: Overlords Onyx Phalanx Not sure on the direction I want to go on this one. Right now I am working with 2 different colors: Gunmetal for the main armor and Honed Silver for the highlights, etc. I may end up tinting the metal, but i'll cross that bridge later. Suggestions would - as always - very much welcome, seriously I would appreciate peer review style comments! Here is two different lighting for a start comparison.
  16. Here we have Dana Murphy, which I plan to enter in the Year of the Giants contest and hopefully Spaceship Superstar if I can get her done in time. The face is basecoated + wash, the eyes are done, and I put down the yellow base coat of her jumpsuit. I will be giving her a yellow and black color scheme.
  17. This is Bones version of Nienna, Elf Ranger. Most ranger figures I've seen are painted green or brown, but I thought I'd go for an autumn theme and paint her in red/orange/yellow/brown. I started by painting the cloak a rusty burghundy, including all the highlights and shadows as if that was the final paint job. Then I started painting a freehand patchwork leaf pattern. Each leaf is painted individually, which takes a devilishly long time, I've come to discover. This is going to take a long time to finish. And right now she's at one of the those early stages when I can't stand what I'
  18. I have a bag of Secret Weapon skulls. I have tamiya clear red. All minis worked on for the spring/summer will have blood and skulls. Because I do what I want. Both from Bones I. Primed in green liner. I don't know if they will be green, but that is the color liner I used. Once again I will be attempting to use the Wappel method on both minis.
  19. I don't really know. But, I had an idea for a diorama for next year's R-con. Basically I took a skeleton dragon and put it in a swamp. It's rising out of the swamp, and the swamp and the mud is still attached to some of the wing. I don't know is it a bad idea?
  20. And here we go.... My eyes were getting tired by the time I got to the drybrushing so not sure how it turned out. I will see as soon as I grab the pic to put in this post. Step 1: Step 2: Step 3 & 4: So it looks like I may need to go over it again with white to bring out a bit more highlight before I start on the bow, quiver, and grass. Hopefully I can continue with this in the next day or two and finish him up.
  21. 60101: Kiramor the Forest Shadow Sculpted by Bobby Jackson Secondary priming on the skin with Linen White: 09061. Added 3 drops of Flow Improver. Then used a Vallejo Elf Skin, 2;1 Flow Improver. In several layers until it was right. Lastly, washed in Flesh Wash: 09253. This was first done broadly, then after it dried I would reapply to lower sections of the muscles.​I still need to darken and go over with a lightened Elf Skin on the raised areas. Then re-blend. Going to work on the eyes next, Mocha has inspired me to attempt the eyes she just did on Noreth Skyblade.
  22. I've been hearing about Scale75 paints for awhile now, and after watching Willen's video I put them on my Christmas list. No one bought them for me though, so I had to go and pick them up myself. To start I decided to go with their Flesh set. Overall I like my Vallejo, but some of their skintones look a little orange to my eyes. Of course I can mix what I want, but a little variety is never a bad thing. Their sets also come with a small painting guide. If it wasn't for having four languages on it, the guide could have been printed on an index card. It's not going to outdo Willen's
  23. 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 covere
  24. So, I've been working on my pathfinder red dragon, but I really loved the clouded sea color that I bought at reapercon... SO I decided he should be a sea dragon!!! After some googling, and my Michael Proctor Kick-elf colors class, this is the color scheme I've decided on. I've obviously got some further shading and cleaning up to do ( I ordered the rest of the clear colors I needed to clean transitions and whatnot), but what do y'all think of the color overall? Is there some other pattern I should try on the scales? I'm painting Kyra and Lavarath next, so I'm trying to get my scale game o
