    The Possession of Kaladrax

    I had a tough time taking photos of the Dragon. He is more of a grey color. I used Reapers Polished bone and washed him in a mix of that and black. First attempt at lava and I am happy with it. Hope you enjoy. :) EDIT : So, this was one of my 1st paints since I was around 8 years old and I completed and posted it earlier this year. Yeah, I chose a Giant Skeleton Dragon (mostly because of my love for the cover art for The Pillars of Pentegarn) The Lava Police subsequently came after me and it was upsetting at the time because I was so proud of my lava. A few months of looking at it and getting more experience....it started to bother me. I was pretty sure I could do better. Ripping the Dragon off of his previous base was an incredible feat do to the kind of glue I was told to use that was unforgiving concrete. I had to chisel him off the wood and he took chunks of wood with him. I got a horrible blister on my index finger from working that putty as it was hardening too. I didn't want to repaint the Dragon, as I said, he is one of my 1st paints and I still think I painted him extremely well despite me still being unable to capture him any better in the photos. I didn't want him with brown wash, so he is more gray and black. I left 3 old pics for comparison and for decent shots of the Necro. I hope you enjoy my new Possession of Kaladrax and maybe...just maybe, the Lava Police come back and say something nice (even though I still used glossy varnish :) )
  2. FIGURE...Grenadier # 2009 (Wizards Room Set - Cauldron with conjured face)...circa (1980-81)... MY TITLE FOR PIECE...The Black Cauldron... STORY LINE...The adventure group has battled climbing the mountain for hours now...crevasse after crevasse...higher and higher...to a height were only moss covers the rocks and gnarled barren trees dot the landscape. You finally reach a small rocky plateau...at the back end is a rocky niche that contains a black cauldron just sitting there. Upon investigation, you find that there is no fire and the cauldron is ice cold...yet it seems to be boiling with some kind of reddish/blackish liquid filled with things that look like tentacles. As you stand at the ready, poised for action, a reddish black mist or smoke rises from the vile liquid and a face appears in the mist (a face that looks like it has seen the coming and going of many ages past). The face speaks in a voice that sounds like it is coming from the depths of an endless void...he says " your destiny awaits...he knows you are coming...he waits "! In a flash...the face is gone...the cauldron is cold and empty...your group stands on the small rocky plateau alone...alone, but with each persons thoughts of what just happened and what might be coming next.........

    Wizard 01 (Bones)

    Here's my first wizard paint job. Still need to figure out what to do for a base, as with all my minis so far. Critiques and words of advice are welcome. I'm still using craft paints, but I got some flow improver and extender which really help. The mini is the Bones 89013: Ezren, Iconic Wizard. ... and here's a gif:

    03321: Damien, Hellborn Wizard

    Here's my next Reaper Bones gaming figure, for my friend's Tiefling Beguiler, Thorne In-Yo-Cide (Yeah, that's really his name). The figure is Damien, Hellborn Wizard (03321) by Derek Schubert. It's a beautiful sculpt!
  5. I've basecoated this guy a while back and posted him to my Springpad Notebook for Miniatures Owned pending returning to him. I reviewed the two-brush blending, as well as glazing, and some other videos and wanted to test out some techniques. Initial entry from Springpad: I'll see if I can find those practice note cards for the book inscriptions and post pictures. Here's Leisynn with his initial basecoating: I liked for the most part what I got on him, so a good start IMO. He's even been used in a game night during my recent vacation. So, first I tackled the robe back and sleeves. I added shadows and highlighting. I might deepen those later but I like where it's at. I then tackled the under-robe or whatever you would like to call it. All I achieved here is to even out the tone of the brown. You can also see from the front and back photos that I made the mantle and shoulder piece a brighter red with shading. I left the skulls the cream/tan color and glazed the ornate weave on the shoulders with the red and wiped the raised pieces back to tan/cream. I added a darkening thinned brown to the book cover. I wanted the skull and corner protectors to stand out a bit more. I left the pages alone as I think the initial painting there works well. The skull is metallic gold but I think the finishing colors will be antiqued gold and some yellow burnished highlights. Same with the corners. The skull and horns on his head and at his waist are ivory with a tan glazing added. I'll continue to step those along while messing with the figure as a whole. In the end, I really want higher contrast on those two pieces. The snake staff ... I lightened the wood of the staff on the top and added some tan to it's face. It's got a rattle at the back which I will also maintain tan/yellow gold I think. I have considered building a color pattern on top of the scales but could easily let it drop after I get farther into the piece. More to come as I practice on him. As always comments, questions and criticisms welcome.

    New batch of erotic i mean exotic minis 8P

  7. So, I was looking around Iron Wind Metals, the place which sells old Ral Partha sculpts. I'm getting interested in the history of minis, and I was curious to see if I could find Tom Meier's original "Ral Partha, evil wizard," which was almost their first mini. I am inclined to believe Iron Wind when they say it's this, since they ought to know. He's pretty lively looking, and is lunging with a sword in front and a staff behind, not bad at all for the timeperiod (what, around 1975?). Trouble is, some people out on the internet name this fella as the original Ral Partha. He's a little less dynamic, but still cool, with a classic pointy hat (no brim), a classic robe and upraised arms, a cape draped over his left arm, and a book and some goodies on his base. I couldn't find him on Iron Wind's site, though. Is there anyone out there with a good knowledge of Ral Partha sculpts (Send up the Buglips signal!) who can say which is the actual original legendary Ral Partha, evil wizard?

    Ye Olde Grenadier Warlock

    These are the minis I first started painting, so I like to go back to them and remind myself of the learning experience sometimes. No matter how poor they are by modern standards, they have a charm I continue to appreciate. Cheers.

    some new painted stuff

    Here are some recent minis i painted !! Reaper= Viking girl Reaper..Sir william Darksword: Female Bard Games workshop: scratch built Games workshop: Scratch built Reaper: Satheras My Site~~ http://paintworksminis.shutterfly.com/
  10. So, I continue to plug along, trying new things. I think this is my sixth mini up here, if you count the group of Astral Reavers as three. I was trying for fire effects and deep shadows. Not sure how successful I was, although it looks nice on the table. I find that I really, really, hate to base. The thought of tweezing tiny clumps of green hairs into glue to make grass fills me with dread. But I can paint. So far I have just been painting my bases, which in this case is a one-inch fender washer lightly sanded for grip.
  11. Kryn the Red, from the STonehaven Dwarves line. Here she is basecoated. I put down the red and green first, and was worried that she'd turn into Mrs. Claus, but the yellow really helps break it up. I'm planning on putting gold metallic on much of what is now yellow. I also plan to highlight the crap out of her clothes - taking the red and green all the way to white to really emphasize the bright colors.
  12. This is the playing figure of my RPG group member who plays a mature wizard in the (Moons Of Darkover). This was a very nice figure to paint. This is a playing piece (ZERICK)!

    02700 Tox

    Okay, finally got a mini I wouldn't be ashamed to bring to the gaming table. I still have a ways to go, but I think I'm definitely on the right track.

    02700 Tox

    I asked some friends what I should paint next, and wizard was the unanimous choice. I chose Tox, 02700, because I felt the robes would give me plenty of practice actually trying to get the colors to blend for shading. For once, I'm actually pretty happy with the eyes. Those I'm going to have to be very careful about not hitting. The orb in his hand I'm going to shade down to red. The one in the staff I'm less sure about as yet. The staff itself will be getting an intense brown drybrush (it's currently painted walnut brown, not very different from the black primer). I'm mostly satisfied with the basic look of the sleeves, though obviously I'm going to have to do a lot of clean-up there. Sorry the picture's not quite as good here, but you get the general idea. The dragon on the back is a slight metallic; I mixed a dab of copper in with some carnage red. I'll work some highlights in. I was thinking maybe a heavier copper mix for the highlights. Anyone tried anything like that before? Is this a good idea? The dragon on his shoulder is carnage red, and it's going to get some black mixed in. Any thoughts, recommendations?

    This inspired me to paint

    Scratch build base of green stuff and fake crystals.
  16. So here are the final official shots of my Secret Sophie 2012 project. I really hope my Secret Sophie pal likes the work I invested in this wizard. I received a lot of encouragement over in my WIP, so I'm hoping that the final product is something that they enjoy. I'd love to see this guy as either a tortured hero in someone's DnD game, or even a villain who once stood on the side of good. A huge thank you to everyone for their feedback and to MonkeySloth and chaosscorpion for the birch seed leaves which adorn the base. I actually 'signed' this one since he's headed out the door.

    My Idea of a Classic Wizard

    Here is another piece that I made for the GenCon sculpture contest. This one is out of green stuff. I did not go the classic pointed hat route instead I used a action pose, I had thought about making the hat on the ground next to him and a sword on the back of the belt but decided that those would might clutter up the figure. I put in a "walk around view" and have been working hard to keep under the posting size. Let me know what you think, and thank you for taking time to look.

    02005, Tox

    This is my Tox Wizard sculpted by Julie Guthrie. The choice of color was inspired by Anne Foerster work on the same model. It was my first attempt at OLS, it's there even if it doesn't show much.
