  1. I like his belt on his back. You can't really see it here but it's a skull pattern. Either he bought it from Hot Topic or his mom made it for him.
  2. Chose a miniature to represent my necromancer for my biweekly D&D Next sessions. Settled on Elquin for the time being. Obligatory (not really) brown liner picture: MY BEST EYES TO DATE! *does happy dance* It only took 2 hours! XD My favorite part of a miniature to paint? The cloak or robes. One day I'll start practicing freehand, for now, just shade and highlight. (Tried painting higher highlights, still seems kind of simple).
  3. I finally finished up my second Stonehaven gnome wizard. A fellow gamer had seen photos of mine and asked me to paint one up for his Forest Gnome Illusionist. I had alot of fun with this project and I quite like how he turned out. I really enjoyed bringing someone else's character to life and this little guy is such fun to paint. Thank you to all my forum members who helped me along the way in my WIP I appreciate all the suggestions and comments, they really help. Here is Dixie complete with a squirrel companion. I used Reaper's squirrel from Familiar Pack IV. Oh and I tried both a black and blue background so bear with me on the photos. Before I send him off I will take a few more photos with a tripod as even though I can steady my hand to paint I can't while taking pictures. Edit** My husband took a few closeups for me so I wanted to share it here as well.
  4. Here is the start of the second Stonehaven Gnome Wizard I am painting. After I finished my gnome I was asked by another gamer to paint one up for his character. Since I enjoyed painting up this tiny gnome the first time I look forward to painting him again. I doubt it will be the last time as I still would like to do a very dark color scheme with a very strong osl flame with gray hair in the future for myself sometime. This time he will look much warmer with lots of browns and worn clothing. I started doing a few mock ups of colors to see what he liked. Here is the ones I came up with. The first one which also was the first one decided against, as overall he had a cool color scheme that did not fit the personality of the character. Although the patchwork and freehand became a staple and will be included on the finished miniature. Then we narrowed it down to these. At this point I preferred the brown and green with red hair combo, but the recipient liked the blonde hair better. So after some more refining this is what I am looking at as a solid starting point for when I receive the miniature. Here is better look at the main colors. The umbrel umber is a chocolate brown which will be highlighted with a orangish brown then a final highlight with a touch of blonde hair added in for the highest spots. It will be used on the hat and cloak. The red stone will be used on his under robe and be shaded with a little purple. I was thinking the molten bronze metallic for his ring and hair tie on his beard as it is a nice warm metallic that will show up nicely in the blonde hair. The violet will be his gems brought up to white in the highest points and shaded down to a deep violet the high contrast will make them look like gems. The aged bone is the one I am uncertain of it would be used for his pouch and possibly tie around his hat. It would be shaded with brown and brought up to a warm white. For the base I was thinking lots of mossy greens and browns with purple glazed in spots. He will be based on a larger base than my gnome going on a 30mm round so I will have more room for creative basing. I also intend to use pigments to give his cloak a worn dirty feel. So what do you all think? Any suggestions or ideas welcome I will be getting the mini in the mail this week if all goes well. And hope to put paint on him soon thereafter once prepped of course and will try to put lots of progress shots up for everyone's input along the way.
  5. Finished up the month with Bobby Jackson's Satheras, Elf Warlock. This is the metal version. I'll be using him as an NPC in the Pathfinder Game I'm running--Gerinnes Lefelen, an elven wizard who's the de facto ruler of a town and the PC's benefactor . . . for now. Mwah ha ha. I'd had this mini on my to-get list for quite some time, having wanted to paint it since the moment I saw it, but I must confess that once I started getting into it I found the robes a little silly, regarding what's part of what and what's not. I just kind of winged it, in the end, hehe, without being altogether sure how it should go. But it was still pretty fun. Thanks for looking! Comments and criticism are always appreciated.
  6. Here is another bones figure for your viewing. Finished him up tonight with a rather simple base. Glad to finally be back in swing of painting regularly [not quickly]. So I present Khael Stonekindle aka Gandwarf Thanks for viewing and any C&C you feel like giving.
  7. While I catch up on all the posts I've missed over the past few weeks, I thought I'd post another WIP. Seemed that posting these wip's kept me painting more frequently. So to get more Bones I painted up before Bone II comes in December here I go again. Here is my progress on Khael for your viewing. Pictures taken with phone.
  8. Okay, last one. I swear. Kimberlee the Fair, by Sandra Garrity. I've professed my love for Ms. Garrity's work more than once, so it goes without saying perhaps that I love this sculpt. But I really love this sculpt. Like, if I could bring one sculpt to life and leave my wife for it, this might be the one. Kimberlee the Beautiful. I got the idea for playing the midriff of her dress as a corset-type article of clothing from a painted version of her I found via a Google image search. I don't think that's how it should be, but I really liked it. I immediately wanted to use the Breast Cancer Awareness pink from my Ghoulie Bag and was inspired by another person's painted Kimberlee to match a purple with it--so I guess I really kind of ripped everything about this paintjob off from other people, lol. Oh, and it gets worse--I bought this mini second-hand. It was primed black and based. I rolled with that. Black's not my usual primer, so I rolled with it and I think benefited from it in this instance. And the base . . . well, I never base. So I can take little credit at all with this mini, but hopefully I did her a bare justice on the rest. Thanks so much for looking. Comments and criticism are much appreciated.
  9. i volunteered to paint up a replacement for Sanael's summer exchange
  10. Most of you probably saw my version of Stonehaven's Gnome Wizard in the WIP section. Since today is the last day for their half-orc's kickstarter and also since I took a quick photo for scale, rather than revive my old WIP thread I thought I would post him in show off since he is finished. He was painted for an upcoming D&D campaign to represent a forest gnome illusionist. I hope to paint some more character miniatures soon and will try to post them as well when they are finished. I must give credit to all my fellow forum members for helping keep me motivated to finish painting him and for all the color suggestions as he turned out better in the end with your help. Thank you all. He was a blast to paint and I enjoyed the entire process I may have to pick up a second one of these to incorporate some more of your ideas and to try to paint an OSL flame against a darker scheme. For scale here he is posing with two beautiful ladies a Dark Sword and Reaper miniature to help show size.
  11. So here is my take on Anirion, Wood Elf Wizard from the Vampire set from the first Kickstarter. I will be the first to admit that I might have gone a little crazy with the GW Agarax Earthshade wash on the robe (Especially on the back, you can see it just clumped and got goopy), but this was my first foray back into painting in about a year, and was kind of rushing it to get him finished for play. I know he doesn't look much like a Wood Elf, but that's because the player in my Campaign who I painted this for is quite fond of Fire Spells, so I used alot of hot colours, and then used the ice blue to sort of oppose the colour scheme and add some contrast. Doing the yellow line was also my first attempt at free hand painting. Like... Ever. I think he turned out a-okay for table top quality. Tell me what you think!
  12. I just started my Stonehaven Gnome Wizard and was hoping for color advice. I didn't plan out my colors in advance for this one as he was intended to be a quick paint up for an upcoming character for D&D. And now I am a bit stuck for the colors of his shoes, and they are quite the shoes for this little guy. I sat and stared at his shoes for about 30 mins mind you while I should've been actually putting paint on him. I was thinking a dark brown, but I am not sure. What do you guys think? Oh and since we are on color advice what opinions does everyone have on his flame and crystals? Without further ado here is the state I left him in for now He is going to be a forest gnome illusionist hence the green and I plan on making a forest base with tiny mushrooms. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
  13. One more for the road: As always, C&C welcome!
  14. more teifling, ahem, hellborn, for my upcoming Wrath of the Righteous campaign. I am working on the two Bones I females next, then onto the Marilith. I also bought the Reaper metal Vulture demon. Then waiting on Bones II for ALL THE DEMONS!!!

    Cassie

    Got her in the mail a few hours ago. I'm really bad at waiting for paint to dry. Now my lunch is cold. Long time no see, all! Hope everyone is doing well. :D
  16. This is Lenore from Hasslefree Miniatures. I should thin my paints more since the finish is a bit blotchy but overall I'm quite pleased with the outcome. It's a great miniature that was easy to paint. Linked for nudity: Front Side
  17. My continuing adventures: This guy was my first adventure with a blue wash. I was trying out new colors, new brushes, blah blah blah. I don't hate him, but IIIIIIIIIIII dunno. And then: I love this guy, despite his Egyptian-walk pose. I couldn't get him to show up very well in any of the pictures I took, unfortunately. Guess I need to quit being shoddy and set up a proper background. But I tried some orange shading with the brown robe, like I was asking about elsewhere, and it looks kind of neat in person. A worthwhile experiment, if nothing else. I also tried adding the yellow on his belting specifically to ccontrast with the purple. Which at least shows I'm thinking, right? Right. Moving along: Didn't try to do a lot with this guy. Aimed to keep it simple. He freaks my wife out, and that'll do, pig. That'll do. Thanks for looking. Totally open as always to advice and all.

    Bones Heroes

    So here are four Bones minis my D&D group picked out for PCs. I have to say I agree that the soft details make Bones less than ideal for PCs and important NPCs. Good for mooks and big monsters, though. Anyways, here they are. I need to get some Testors Dullcoat; my current matte spray is too shiney on Bones. Too bad this figure was discontinued; maybe we'll see it in metal. The details were quite soft on this figure, but it came out OK. I started out painting the cloth on this dwarf in blue, but then saw that was what every version in the gallery had. So purple. This one looks more indigo in person. I think my camera must have some setting to shift away from violet. Need to fix the staff, too.
  19. As promised, here are 77040: Satheras, Male Warlock and the Little Death Familiar (Named Ezekiel and Jack, respectively): (Yes that is what you think it is.) As always, thanks for looking, and C&C welcome!
  20. I'm a big fan of the Arcane Trickster prestige class from Pathfinder-- would Reaper consider making a miniature of it? I know that Pathfinder Society hasn't made this class an iconic character, but I think it'd be pretty widely enjoyed, and a pretty interesting model. Here's a picture of the Gnome AT from the CRB!
  21. Part of 03529 sculpted by Gene Van Horne. Constructive criticism and suggestions welcomed. I've been postponing starting this mouseling because of the difficulty of tight spaces. I've become more adept at using a long brush with a tiny amount of paint on the tip to reach hard-to-reach places without smearing what is already done, but it was still a trial that took a number of fixings. My image of this mouseling was the wizard Radogast from the books of Lord of the Rings (not that shown in the Hobbit movies, much as I love Sylvester McCoy) but couldn't really fit a forest and cute creatures on his base. We are left with soil (reaper muddy brown with Citadel sepia and earth shades), grass (Army Painter battlefields wilderness tuft 4mm) and autumn leaves (Secret Weapon Fallen Leaves Fall colors). I felt the 'staff' was much too thick for him to carry, and that it must be a way-marker. (Does anyone else make up little back stories for their characters?) Radogast is very much looking out from under his hat, so I've included a shot of him tipped back to see his face more clearly. This is photographed using a home-made light box and my nice macro lens. It did take a while to get the balance of light and f number correct. Apologies that its not all in focus.
  22. Actually it should be look at what my Dad found. He gave me found a handful of my old Grenadier miniatures the other day from the early 1980s and this was about the best looking figure in the lot, condition wise. Probably because I never liked him as a kid, not the most exciting guy, but no globs of testers paint on him for me to clean off and most of his body intact....Sweet. I had fun painting him and was thinking about painting some more of them, but I'm not sure if anybody is interested in this stuff here. Probably not as cool as a pro could pull off on an old piece, but I still hope you enjoy. :)
  23. I posted a diorama here a few weeks back, but it was never meant to be permanent. I was finally able to remove them all from the diorama and base them all. They are a team to me now and tried to keep the bases simple and matching. Deathsleet's base took me a lot longer and I'm pretty happy with it. Diorama link here if you are interested. I hope you enjoy.
  24. Woo! So, I finally got a camera, and I thought I'd upload some of my painted minis~ I'm gonna upload them in the order I did them, so I'll do the "Unicorn" first! Now, all of my mini's are painted in Marie's Artist's Acrylics - I get mine for 5$/box at Ocean State Job Lot. My paint brushes are these - they're cheap, they're tiny, and they move paint from the palette to the mini, which is all I really ask for in a brush. They last okay; I need to order new ones, and even 15 brushes don't last long, so I usually order 2-3 sets at a time - with free shipping, spending 5 or 6 dollars isn't that big a deal for 40-50 brushes, but they take up to 2 months to get here, a bit of a wait. Now, onto my figures! I've never painted minis before these - initially, I was looking for cheap minis for D&D on amazon, prepaints and such, and someone in the comments mentioned Reaper; I visited here, dropped a hundred bucks on some minis, and now I'm 800$ in the hole for KSII. Never gonna play D&D without minis again... they'll make my mats so much livelier. And of course, now I want to get into Hirst... but that's a matter for another thread! So I got my minis, and I was very happy. The first I decided to paint was a unicorn - my sister wanted to see a fire unicorn, and I thought, "I can do that!" So I did! HELLO, FRIENDS! Hello, unicorn! I started this one by basecoating... black, I think. Then I did the mane and tail; white, then yellow, followed by drybrushed red and orange, and with a dryer sort of drybrushing of black after. Then I made grey, and I added a little blue & brown - just the tiniest bit - and used that for the body. A slightly darker shade added the collarbone and the leg's shadow, and then I reblacked the hooves, eyes, teeth and horn... All in all, I think this one came out great! I plan to base it when the KSII bases get here; I want to do it rearing on a brownstone cliff in scrublands - something with a deep, dark red color, to give it a lot of contrast and make the mane pop! Here are some other pictures: The blur! THE BLUR! This picture shows off the mane really well, I think. The shading on the stomach, too. Next up: THE GRYPHON!
  25. This is a quickie paint job (2-3 afternoons) and slight modification to represent my 10th level human wizard, Murf. The colors are dark because he runs around with a band of hunted thieves and mercenaries. I did the boil and ice thing with the figure, straightened most of it out, but the staff is about as solid as a wet noodle. The base is one I got out of the Bag of Crap from Secret Weapon. AAAAUUUGGHHH! Attack of the giant cat monster!
