  1. My in-laws have a tradition of passing off a joke gift to all the male adults. Someone (it's forgotten who originally was gifted with the slippers) got a pair of knitted size 14 (my in-laws are all over 6'5, I'm the short one at 6'2) slippers in white, orange and green wool. They are ugly. This person then added a small change, like a patch, to each slipper and re-gifted it. The tradition continues. There's one more person I can give these to before it becomes a random (or someone else marries into the family). I'm adding a few quickly painted bones orcs. I would do different ones (because I
  2. Hey all, Wanted to take a break from painting big stompy robots (CAVs) and get back into something with curves. Someone in my pathfinder group just made a new character, a female slayer... So I used that as motivation to paint up this awesome sculpt. I looked around and got heavy inspiration from these two posts by Pingo and Evilcoatrack: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61985-scáthach-scotswoman-warrior-77389-highland-heroine/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69147-77389-highland-heroine-wip/ I decided to try a few new things with this mini, including
  3. Painting up Una the Falconer for my Patrons. They chose the model for me, and I paint it. Then I raffle it off. She has just a ludicrous amount of detail on the front. So much that I often have no idea what I'm painting until everything around it is complete. Then it's one of those 'Aha!' moments that requires me to repaint. I'm complaining too much though. She's not that bad. But, in some cases I'd say dialing the detail back a bit helps create some better visual clarity. And that, really, has been the most difficult part - having enough contrast and separation between all those stitch
  4. After my exchange mini I wanted to touch work on something less taxing. So I decided to work on a few more Walkers. Also I decided to test out the camera on my new tablet. Not a whole lot of editing options, but I could crop the photos, and I think I got the white balance OK. Here is the group shot: While I finished the highlights on the skin of all 4, I only managed to get this guy's highlights finished. I still plan on putting down some washes to make the shadows darker, and bloody him up. But this is the 1st step in my Zombicide process. I'll see how it looks on my computer in a bit.
  5. I'm playing Hoard of the Dragon Queen, and apparently we need a dragon. So I'm painting the Shadow Dragon that's been in my "Box of 20" unpainted minis as a blue dragon. Last night I boiled, cleaned and glued the wings (because why not? Oh, ok... THAT's why not) and slopped on blue liner/medium. I will probably slop on some more liner to actually line. Colors I'm planning on using. -Interference Blue (Yes, this dragon has been Pingo'd). Skin:Dragon Blue (!), Frost Blue, Blue Flame, Ghost White, Magic Blue (VGC), Denim Blue Plates/Bone: Handle Wood (SW), Bone White (VGC), Pearl White, Crea
  6. I think "Corporeal Shadow" and I are going to be good friends. Washes to follow.
  7. Many moons ago, when the first official preview for D&D 5E were coming out, a friend and I were discussing that the Paladin preview had a Half-Orc as the example art, and it would be interesting to see more atypical race/class combos in the books. He had suggested a Tiefling Barbarian, and lo and behold, not but five minutes later, WotC previewed the Barbarian and it was...a generic Viking style Human. Later that day, during downtime at work, I thought I'd make it up to both of us and sketch out a concept for a Tiefling Barbarian. I kept the 4E & 5E pact-style Tieflings, and took a
  8. I have been working on this mini for the last weeks. I did not have a lot of time to paint and forgot to make a wip.. The first time I saw the Friar I was reminded of a painting I saw a long time ago of a Japanese monk on a bridge. So I painted him as a monk and made a bridge out of balsa and plastic card. I also wanted a tree with blossoms. The tree took a few tries before I was happy with it. The Friar wip. Building the base Trees tries 1 and 2 The final tree Added stones and sand to the base and base colors Added blossom to the tre
  9. Okie dokie, I have a new idea! See, I love the SL Dark Sword sculpt The Lovers. It's just so sweet. Normally when I look at a sculpt I try to accentuate whatever emotion I imagine the artist trying to evoke and build on that with my paint choice, basing and composition. This one reminds me of a wedding. I get all teary-eyed just thinking about the happiness. Lately though, I'm in the process of killing off my main protagonist in a story I'm writing. Don't hate me. It's necessary to drive the character arcs for my 3 main supporting characters. Plus, I feel like a story always
  10. First, a quick story. While falling asleep last night, I tried to come up with a plan for the Open category at Reapercon. The theme is horror, so I needed something suitable. What's scary? Hmmmn. Something scary. I liked Kuro's tentacle project. Something with tentacles? Hmmmn. Scary... what are kids afraid of... I sat bolt upright in bed. A Nightmare! It's perfect! I can mutilate a bunch of Bones I'll never get around to painting and make all the rest from greenstuff and sculpey. I can use Talespinner's awesome Bones bed and make a little kid huddling under a blanket. I
  11. My third and final bust (for now) from Heroes & Villains Miniatures. This one is "Jacobite Highlander: Culloden Moor, 1746." The big challenge here is, of course, going to be the tartans. From my research, it looks like pretty much every piece of the outfit could be a different plaid, but I'm not sure yet if I'm going to leave the shirt and/or jacket a solid color for my own sanity. This is definitely going to be the most extensive freehand I've ever attempted. He also has a few accessories that I haven't attached yet, and even came with another, much angrier and beardier head. I probably
  12. I edited this post include a list of my tutorials: Sculpey Base Tutorial Marble Base Tutorial Maple Tree Tutorial Ode to Blue Face Painting Tutorial Original start of WIP: I've been meaning to start a running WIP thread. Might as well use this. I've been working on the Bones "Ice" Spider. I'd wanted to get it finished for the Winter Wonderland theme, but work interfered. We had a door related accident, and a glass bowl suffered, so I saved some pieces thinking they'd make good bases. The remainder of the glass is "seaglass" and some painted sculpey surrounding it. T

  14. This is continued from my summer thread here. These are my old threads if you want them. there are a few tutorials linked on the last one. Jan-April 2013-14 So, I'm bound and determined to finish this cursedly large dragon! Right, working on the sides from a few different angle: The goal here is to make sure I get enough contrast and also have a gradient from light to dark. The leg: Still in progress... every time I get a few layers down there are a thousand more waiting! The tail: ...and here is the in progress: Still have lots to do but making progress
  15. Thought I'd go ahead and share the latest from my painting desk. Working on the Incredible Hulk miniature from Knight Models: Yeah, he's nearly done and will likely be finished up quite easily during my next painting session, but I'm definitely quite happy with how it's progressing. Just need to paint the shirt, the chunk of wall, and the ground/base - but I have his opponent lined up to paint in the Hulkbuster Armor. And then I'll need to come up with a ruleset to play them with... The most interesting part about this model is a new technique that I heard about combining super
  16. Yup after that comment in one of my other WIP's I couldn't stop myself from starting a new WIP. I had this sitting on my queue for a bit now. Since I've been working on the Zombicide Walkers so much lately I had to try my hand at a different model of zombie. I decided on Bonesylvanian Barb. The eyes were my first step. After posting I realized what was bothering me about them. The light isn't in the same angle on both sides. Doh! Also all was going well with using the same colors as my other zombies, when I decided to drift from the previous method by adding a glaze to add color. I trie
  17. Welcome! This is my first thread here, and I wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone for the knowledge and inspiration that I have already received from this site. I painted some when I was in college about 20 years ago. Mostly GW stuff as it was easily obtained. Most of it was fairly flat. No wash, layering, glazes, ... However, I did do a little with drybrushing. The back of the cloaks on the Wood Elf Wayfinders very much screamed for drybrushing. I've spent my last few months getting an area in my garage cleared for me to paint., as well as picking up a few supplies. Mo
  18. I picked up a couple of starter sets for Guild Ball a while back but I've been in a bit of a hobby funk for the past month. I'm hoping to break out of it by getting these guys started: This is my first foray into a miniatures game along with my serious attempt and basing some minis. First up is Ox: I just put some green stuff into the bases slot and stuffed the metal tab in there with it. I covered it up a bit and let it set overnight. Then I glued some GF9 basing grit to the base with some Elmer's Glue and after it set I used some watered down glue to seal the grit on th
  19. I have chosen the sorcerer Lamann to be my next victim to splash some paint on. I got to use Reaper's Grey Primer 9299 for the first time. I love it so much over the Vallejo Surface Primer. The Vallejo primer seems kinda watery to me compared to the Reaper primer. Also Vallejo's primer bubbled up on me a lot when I would use it. This is the first of Reaper's primers that I've tried. I have the black and the white and I hope I love them as much as this one. I laid down a few basecoats while at a friend's place Friday and this is as far as I've gotten so far. I used
  20. So I started working on painting my undead army for Kings of War. It's going to take me a LONG time to get everything done at the pace I'm going. This is figure #1 of at least 150, probably closer to 200. The first mini I decided to start with is one of my hero units, Lady Ilona. She's a Mantic sculpt, cast in their resin plastic or whatever they call their "non-resin," non-polystyrene, castable plastic. I got her primed the other day, and laid down some basic colors to sort of get the ball rolling last night. I realized after I'd started painting that I'd apparently not really prepped her a
  21. About this model: The 1/60 Despot was designed and built by John Bear Ross, under license from Reaper, back around 2003 in a limited run. I don't remember the exact number but I want to say there were only 100 made. It is a combination of resin and metal parts and requires quite a bit of assembly before I can start painting. The tank treads look to be the most difficult part. Before anything more, I want to say that Mike Hardy (aka Black Lightning 2 back in the day) is awesome! I couldn't afford to buy one of these limited edition models when they were released, but several years ago Mike
  22. So, I need to finish the dragon and get it off my desk and onto a shelf somewhere where it will not taunt me. A bit of history- I decided to do a super in-depth WIP since so many nice forumites at Reapercon helped me win it two years ago in the auction. With this post I have officially surpassed 100 in-progress photos!! Yay!!! Here are the old threads if anyone wants them where I did the early step-by-step. May-Aug Sept-Dec This weekend I tackled the last aurora effect on the underside of the wing. No pics, sorry, but it looks just like the other one. I still need to do some ble
  23. Hey all! I posted a few days ago about being new and now I'm back to painting my fourth figure. I tried tackling my biggest issue, which was eyes. And honestly i was kind of happy with the product until i took the picture for this thread and now i hate the eyes :p. I think I'll just leave them as is to save me my sanity. But here's my progress as of now. Ideally I'd like to get the figure done in one sitting but I got out of work late and spent almost two hours on just the face so that's probably not happening. I'll keep painting and post what I've completed whenever I give up for the nigh
  24. So over in the Frostgrave thread I posted that I would write up a battle report. Well putting together the the terrain pieces I have (not many ), I realized I didn't have enough. So I'm torn between what to build the remaining set up out of. I have several already cast piece of HA blocks of ruined field stone, lots of foam core, modelling clay, and miliput. I have in idea of how I want to set the board up, but need more pieces. Here is a quick photo of the start. I cut out 2' × 2' piece of foam core for the play area as per the scenario size. Then placed the pieces down. This is wher
