Just a mix of some figures I'm trying to post from the last few months. It's been a long slog taking pictures, if I'm being honest - I've got all the stuff, but my phone's camera is bad and so I try to use my dads. He and I both work different days though, and it's too dark in the evening even with extra light, so I've been trying to wait for days we're both home, with mixed results. I think I've worked something out, though. Anyways, first up is Bailey Silverbell! She was a speedpaint, around three hours, so I'm pretty pleased with her. I based her color scheme off my favorite Flight Rising dragon, Gladyr: https://flightrising.com/main.php?p=lair&id=246256&tab=dragon&did=28380176 Who's got some more elven art in her bio there of her, but she's a ranger's ranger, so I figured a dwarf would do as well! Didn't spend much time on any one part of her, but I figure she's going to make a good PC/NPC one day, and I'm pretty pleased. As the one dwarf I did of the 13 I prepped for November, I'm OK with it. Next up, a flying snake familiar I did for a fellow player in my Thursday group - very happy with how this came out! I started with the metal baby coatl from the Warlord Familiars III set (it's in Bones, too, if you want to do the conversion yourself, but the whole pack was 1/2 off at a local comic shop) and clippered the arms off, then filed them away. They attached at odd angles, but I got them off pretty well - more time and a round file would have smoothed the job better, but I didn't want to spend too much time obsessing, and it's harder to see the rough edges IRL. Clipped away the base and then glued it to a resin "brick wall chunk" I got at Reapercon two years ago. There's some neat GS plants beneath that flock that got buried in the photos but you can still see IRL - just some mosses and stuff to blend it into the ground - and did a quick little quetzal-themed paint job to get it up to snuff. Of course, the player has since managed to Reincarnate back to a human from his previous Yuan-ti form, so he's changing the flying snake to a centipede to put his traumatic curse behind him... but I have a bunch of those arriving from Otherworld in a few days, and Flying Snakes come up as familiars all the time in my groups, so I won't hold it against him. https://imgur.com/a/UJi0Uun And the centaur kids! These two are Reaper's Sagitarius Zodiac, a really fantastic mini that I wish they'd sell without the metal base for exactly this. I've wanted it pretty much since the first time I saw it, put off getting it, Boneyard closed down, didn't get it because the base was huge, forgot to pick them up at my first Reapercon, and finally remembered this year. Super-cute. So cute. These two are on 1" bases and they fit perfectly, they're at a great scale with Reaper's other Centaurs, and it's such a fun idea for an NPC, right? And they're so in-line with the lore for D&D centaurs, out "helping the grown-ups" with little kid-bows... I love them. The first is painted up using some references of young Lakota women; she washed out a bit in pictures, but the hair is really a dark brown. Her body is based on the quarter-horses my neighbors own, although, rest assured, she is at least half-horse, or closer to 2/3 by volume. The second is an elf, with silver hair and a dappled-grey body. I might revisit her at some point; I like the blue straps on the first centaur more than the tan on her, and might redo that. I've got a third one I just found (thank goodness) that actually reminded me to post these, since I took the pics a while ago... She's going to be modded a bit, made a little older-looking, and done as an adult fallow deer centaur - a smaller variant closer to a halfling-centaur that dwells in their forests and rarely interacts with non-fae.
I painted my first "Bailey Silverbell" Reaper miniature in 2012. I painted another version in between projects over the last few months and gave her a Little Red Riding Hood theme. I loved this Reaper mini back then and I still love it now-- only this time I was able to try my hand at a few more techniques I've learned, including some NMM. If you haven't painted a "then & now" miniature, I hope you try it sometime. It's truly rewarding to see your improvement over the years!
The last of my postings from 2014, Werner Klocke's Bailey Silverbell, Dwarf. A lovely mini, and one I wanted to paint for a while, I finally grabbed her as my wife decided she wanted her to represent her (albeit gnome) rogue in a PF campaign I was running. Unfortunately, the campaign collapsed before she could put the mini into action, but I was nonetheless pleased that my wife loved me enough to let me paint a mini for her. And to play in an RPG. She's pretty good like that. Anyway, these pictures are pretty awful; I'm kind of posting just to post. The skill level is obviously not great, but I absolutely could not capture the dark colors I used. Everything's kind of a wash, here. But I did it, so here's it. Thanks for looking!
Cecilia, the Hefty Halfling is a D&D bard/fighter character I am currently playing. She once got the party into a fight with killer mushrooms when she tried to collect them for a stew. And when the battle was over, she still made her stew. This is a Bones figure, with minimal prep. I didn't use any primer, but I did glue her to a gaming base, and extended the base she came with into more rock and dirt using green stuff. I missed a mold line or two, but otherwise, she's not too bad. The surface was not as smooth as polished and primed metal, but for a tabletop mini, that's ok. My friend bought the Vampire Level Bones Kickstarter set, and I'm on deck to paint all the minis for our PCs, so I'm not putting in a lot of time on each one. This one took me 4 hours, including prep. I was lazy about planning a palette, and stole it from a Reaper Paint Crew paint job of another figure. Bonus points if you can identify which one! (The Paint Crew job is much better than mine, especially since this is speed paint.)
