    Tox Dragon Wizard - 02700

    Not sure how he got his name. Sounds like it would have been better for a post apopcalyptic mini. I had a really tough time with this one. That dragon on his cape broke up my flow lol. I really didn't know what to do with it and didn't even know it was there until it came in the mail. The base is sort of ordinary, but it will match the base of something bigger that I am working on. Nice wet cave setting.:)

    :poke:Don't let his posture fool you, he's actually quite deadly with a light saber.

    01559: Malena the Sorceress

    Special Edition miniature (ReaperCon 2015), sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I was honestly not a huge fan of the sculpt, but I felt like it would be a good fit for what my partner wanted. There are lots of wavy cloth bits to paint, which are always fun. In the end, I was actually kind of sad to let her go, and I might have to reuse this color scheme in the future. The base of the blue is MSP Bones HD Tropical Blue, and the green is PP Poison Green up to MSP Moth Green. Originally painted for the Summer Miniature Exchange, but my partner disappeared and I never heard whether she arrived.

    77054: Galladon, Male Wizard

    Hello all! As usual, I have spurts of activity that lasts 3-4 days every 4-6 months. That might not sound like a lot (and lets be honest, its not), but it does let me finish 2-4 minutes each time. This time around I actually got off my but and painted the rest of the mini's for my current pathfinder party! Funny enough, that's not what this topic is about however (might do another one for that group). This topic is for what I feel is still my best mini to date from a technical standpoint. One where I actually (attempted) to manually blend and layer in shadows and highlights. I had even gotten brave at one point and had tried pulling off Object Source Lighting (from the glowing text on the scroll onto his hat and his robe/beard), it failed terribly, and looked like I was terrible with a paint bush (slopping paint on the wrong parts). OSL is something I will work on in the future I guess. This mistake (and undo function) can be seen in his arm still, how the color doesn't quite match the rest of the robe. I actually showed this guy off a bit a while back in another topic, but felt that that with my new "photobooth" setup, which works rather well (despite looking like a mess), that he deserved his own topic. The initial goal of this mini was to have my very own "Janky Wizard". Red Hat, Purple Robe, Green Shoes, that sort of high-fantasy thing. It actually worked out MUCH better than I had planned it. Take a look for yourself! This is the Male Wizard Galladon (77054)! He is a proud spell caster! Or a very very bad fighter, one of the two. Here are some more pictures! Wow... You really can see EVERY single mistake you made under these lighting conditions. Well then. Yep, looks like I got purple on the base at some point and totally did not notice. Also the transition in blending in the shadows looks so much rougher in these pictures than it does IRL. You know what? Here's a worse quality picture that shows the mini in the gaming room lighting conditions: While not the best picture, you can see how it looks when you see it in person. I mean, I feel I did a pretty good job overall? The mini was sealed in two coats of Krylon Crystal Clear spray varnish, and then a coat (or three? Varies per model, depending on how shiny they are) of Testors Dullcote. I find this results in the strongest finish, while keeping a mostly matte appearance. I've realized recently that in my time on this forum (since I started painting mini's) back in March of 2013, I've really only painted somewhere between 18-30 minis (depends on how you count doing a bunch of individual rats I suppose). I think I was at around 15 minis when I did this Wizard? Before getting into miniatures, I had 0 painting experience, 0 drawing experience, and in general pretty much no art experience outside of Digital/3D rendering, and a bit of Photography. I'd like to think I've come a pretty long way. All the while working very, very slowly on my Storm Giant. So what do you guys think? How do you think it turned out? Do you have any tips/suggestions to share? I would love some examples/suggestions on getting into Object Source Lighting. Whenever I see examples posted here with OSL, they always blow me away every time. I know it's got to involve insane amounts of layers/blending, thats for sure. Anyway, I'm open to your comments!
  6. This week I painted up Ezren, Icon Wizard, from the Bones 1 Iconics II Pathfinder Miniatures set. Like the figure I posted Monday (Seltyiel, Iconic Magus), which I decided to use as a Fire-themed Elementalist, this one I felt would serve as a good Elementalist too, but an Air-themed one. He just had a very wind blown look about him, and I thought I could accent that by painting some wind designs on his clothing. I'm happy with how he turned out, and together I think they make a great pair of Elementalists for Frostgrave.

    Seltyiel, Iconic Magus (Bones) (89014)

    Over the weekend I finished up the first of the Bones 1 Iconics II Pathfinder Miniatures set: Seltyiel, Iconic Magus. I've slowly been trying to create a Wizard and Apprentice pair for each of the 10 schools of magic from the Frostgrave core rulebook, and one of the ones I haven't done yet is the Elementalist type. I thought this guy might make a good fire-based Elementalist, so decided to go that direction with my painting. ​For the step-by-step painting write-up, please see my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2016/09/seltyiel-iconic-magus-figure-244-of-266.html
  8. This is a quick tabletop commission piece I did for one of my friends who I play D&D with. His Dwarf Wizard likes to mix things up with his axe as well as spells. He also has an earth elemental that he summons as a familiar, which is what I attempted to recreate on the base with cork and bark. The figure is Dwarf Heavy Fighter from Hammer & Forge Miniatures. C&C welcomed and appreciated, thanks for looking! Edit to add another angle of the elemental familiar.

    Before and After

    I went back and touched up some of my very early paint jobs from a couple of years or so back. I thought it would be fun to post some before and after pics. Photo quality is getting a little better, unfortunately most of these models are no longer in my possession and I have no way of taking better pics for when I finally get a decent camera. I know some people like to look at how they progressed over time and keep their 1st minis untouched, but I really like these models so much, that I wanted to bring them up to how I had hoped they would look when I first painted them. Hope you enjoy my extra bit of effort and their final time in the spotlight. BEFORE AFTER BEFORE AFTER BEFORE AFTER BEFORE AFTER
  10. Doing a quick tabletop commission piece for one of my D&D buddies again. This character is a fighter who decided to go into wizardry and still likes to get in the grill of his enemies to unleash axe and spells. Need to finish this guy up this week since next Saturday is D&D game day.

    wizard with crystal ball

    I was just looking at the pics of the bones minis from the 3rd kickstarter, and seeing that we are getting a wizard with out his crystal ball I have decided to put him behind one of the bald dwarves in my bones collection. this way it will look like he is getting a reading off of a shiny head, or he is polishing the bald spot. your choice.
  12. Hey there guys been away for a while due to illness but while convalescing I made this diorama Its the Tin man arriving at the Wizards lair for a heart. However my Wizard of Oz requires Tin man to prove he deserves his heart through combat! Hope you love the diorama and as always comments are wanted and appreciated!
  13. So, I realized something about my Frostgrave collection: it's lacking painted Wizards! Something I could easily fix. After the "Into the Breeding Pits" Gnickstarter came in, I scoured my collection for appropriate arcane types. Most had been sitting in boxes unloved for some time. My hope is to be able to run demos with these additions representing various schools. First, the gathering of Schools: A Necromancer Wizard (Reaper Miniatures Darkrasp) His Apprentice (Mage Knight) A Thaumaturge, a Reaper miniature picked up many moons ago for use in D&D 4E's "Revenge of the Giants" game. A Warmage from the old Chainmail line of D&D minis, who I think seems best suited to be an Elementalist: A Summoner from Reaper Bones: A Soothsayer also from Reaper Bones: A Wizard from the Warcrow range, who may instead see use as an Apothecary in the planned Arabian Nights style warband: An Elven Mage, who was also painted when I realize I didn't have any painted Elf Mages for a recent one-shot D&D game (Reaper Bones again) A Heresy Miniatures Wizard, who had his staff lost to the winds of time and replaced with a Warhammer Elven Blade: And last, some of the actual Frostgrave line from Northstar Miniatures. An Elementalist Apprentice: And the set of Beastcrafters:

    03693: Qualanar, Human Wizard

  15. This week I finished up the Derro Mage from the Bones 2, Expansion 1, Derro Set. I plan to use him as a Soothsayer type wizard for Frostgrave. I'm really pleased with how this fellow turned out. I'm particularly proud of the big eye on his chest. I think he and the Apprentice I posted earlier make a pretty good "odd couple" Soothsayer pair.
  16. My first caster for Frostgrave. Harsh and honest critiques are most welcome.
  17. Acquired as add-ons during the "Dungeon Monsters" Kickstarter by Johnny Borg Castings, I did up some dungeon decor and resting adventurers. "About our pay..." (the table and backdrop are the only non-Johnny Borg Castings material, both from Dwarven Forge) The decor alone: Drinking Barbarian: Feasting Barbarian: Resting Wizard who is not Santa:
  18. I bought some of the bones mouslings for my wife to paint. Well she never got around to it and I needed a druid/animal mage who was going to animate a treant in our game so I slapped some paint of this little guy. Now I'm really looking forward to the bee keeper one. I also have the rogue and assassin set too. I stole the shooting star robe idea from someone who was doing an eye painting tutorial on youtube. Mine comes no where near his though.
  19. Hey guys been away for a long while doing this amazing diorama! Dragons don't share 2! What an awesome time I had doing this the scenery is beautiful the dragon is majestic! I also decided to switch out the team in the box for a group of treasure seeking wizards and sorcerers. As always comments are wanted and appreciated!!! I Have taken many pics to capture every aspect of the model!

  21. I recently posted over on the Conversions sub-forum about how I converted the Olivia, Female Cleric, figure into a Sigilist wizard for a new Frostgrave warband I am working on: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69559-olivia-cleric-bones-jolie-scribe-to-sigilist-apprentice-conversion/ A Sigilist derives their magical power from words and languages, so I wanted her to be very "word" oriented. Besides her two books and inkwell, I wanted to paint her cloak to look like it had magical words floating all over it that appeared to floating to the surface and then receding back down again. I asked on the Works in Progress sub-forum for some help on how to achieve this and got some great advice: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69652-advice-wanted-on-word-covered-wizard-robes/ I put that advice to use, and am pleased with the results:
  22. I'm starting to work on a Sigilist warband for Frostgrave, and I needed to come up with a wizard and apprentice figures. For those unfamiliar with Frostgrave, Sigilists are a wizard type that are experts in magic dealing with words, writing, and languages. So I definitely wanted figures who had some visual connection to that aspect of the wizard type. Also, since Frostgrave is set in a frozen city, I wanted figures that were dressed in warmer clothes. For the Wizard, I first looked at the Olivia, Female Cleric, figure that I had got in the Bones II Kickstarter; and while perfectly dressed, she really didn't look predominantly "word-y" enough for me. Then, I saw a spare Leisynn, Mercenary Mage,figure I had, holding his big book, and a thought struck; perhaps I could cut off his book and forearm, and attach it to Olivia. So, I did that, and it looked great. It amazed me how well the book fit up against her, and the tilt of her head made it look exactly as if she was reading from the book. I then considered what to do with her other hand. I didn't know what I could put in it, or whether i should leave the jar; but I thought, why would she be holding a jar? Then it hit me how similar the jar looked to an ink bottle. All I needed was a feather to be a quill, and it would work. So I rummaged around in my spare plastic sprues, and found one that had some English Civil War figures. Luckily there's was a little pair of feathers for attaching to a hat as a plume; they would be perfect. I slice the stopper off the bottle, and drilled a tiny hole in the bottle's top. Then I pre-sprayed the feather bit with some flat white primer; and when dry I superglued it into the bottle. I am really pleased with the end result: Next, I worked on the Apprentice figure. I selected a figure of Jolie, Female Scribe, that I had got last year from the Box of Goodwill. She was perfect as is with her big book, but she looked a little lightly dressed for the frozen city of Frostrgrave. So, I thought I would do a quick fix for that and simply add an old GW cape I had in my bits box to the figure. Luckily, it fit perfectly on her shoulders. It sticks out a little in the back, but I don't think it looks too bad I'm really happy with how the pair turned out. They're in the painting queue now, so if all goes well look for the Show Off three in a few weeks. :)

    Argia Tholos, Hasslefree Miniatures

    Man, I hate learning things the hard way. This is Argia Tholos from Hasslefree Miniatures and the original figure is bald. Which she was up until I saw the result of my second layer of floor polish to varnish the figure. She had been hanging upside down to dry which had created a egg head effect when the floor polish collected on the top of her head. I tried to cut it off but eventually was forced to scalp her completely. That resulted in a mark down to the skull which would have been kind of neat if I had painted her up as a zombie. Since I wasn't doing that I was forced to break out some milliput and use my non existent sculpting talents to try and save the situation. It could definitely have been worse, but it could also have been much much better. Although there's nothing I can do about that now. Looking past the major varnish failure I was really happy with the result. The resulting miniature post "Project save face" is acceptable. Perhaps abit to much orange all around? Should I have gone for a different hair color?

    My Frostgrave Chronomancer Warband

    This weekend I finished up my Chronomancer warband for Frostgrave. I've been working on this off and on since last October, and finally finished painting the last figure on Friday. I wanted to assemble a band that looked like they had been brought together from throughout time; or had been to different time periods, and brought back souvenirs. I did some customization to a few of the figures to get that Frostgrave-meets-other-time periods look I wanted. I'm very happy with how this group turned out, and I'm looking forward to get a chance to use them in a game! First up is the Chronomancer and Apprentice. These are both modified Reaper Bones figures. Next is the party's Templar, "Crossbowman", and Man-at-Arms. The Templar is made up mainly of GW Space Marine parts, the "Crossbowman" is a plastic French soldier (unsure of manufacturer), and the Roman is from Foundry. Note, that the Foundry figure was so short compared to the other figures in the warband, I had to base him up on a sheet of cork to make the size difference less noticeable. We then have a Thief, and two Thugs. The Thief is a Reaper metal Ninja figure, and the two Thugs are from the North Star plastic Frostgrave soldier set with the additions of different heads. Lastly, we have the group's War-Hound. This figure is from Eureka, and is just filling in as a proxy (probably; unless I end up liking him as part of the group too much ) until I get the guard dog figure from the Reaper Bones III Kickstarter this Fall. And here's a look at the whole gang together:

    60079: Lyrie Akenja

    This is one of the last figures from my year-end Conga Line of finishing up half-done minis, Reaper's 60079: Lyrie Akenja, a Pathfinder miniature sculpted by Julie Guthrie. She's a special figure to me. Lyrie Akenja is the first figure I bought after a twenty-year hiatus from minis. I spotted her somewhere, thought "Wow, an African wizard! Things sure have changed," and bought her, along with a few other minis. I then proceeded to give her the worst paint job I had ever given a mini in my life. I hadn't realized that I needed glasses nowadays, and I was too nervous to focus properly. So after some angst, I soaked her paint off and started again. And set her aside for a couple of years while I developed a new skill set. And then picked her up again to finish with the Conga Line. I like her little pushing the hood up with the wand gesture.
