    DSM7443 Eleven warlock

    Another of last months work, I wanted to try two things with this mini, first practice on some osl, but mainly wanted to see how far I could push the shadows on a white cloak, hoping for almost a pure black. But I failed miserably, when I had up to reapers 09137 Blackened Brown It just didn't feel/look right to me so this was the darkest I could get. I also did something weird for me as well painting the hair a weird color for kicks.

    Jasper vs. Rabbit Season

    So, a very long time ago, somewhere around the turn of the millennia, when I started buying minis (not counting that dragon I bought in the early 90s...which I should get around to painting one of these days....) I came across a miniature that would change the course of history! Well, my history anyway, because if I hadn't seen it I likely wouldn't be posting about all these other minis I bought because if it, not to mention all the butterfly bunny effects that that one change would have made to the timeline....but I digress. One that faithful day I spotted the legendary (and apparently back in print!!) Doom Bunny from Ral Partha. I, of course, had to have it. It then sat (as is usual) unpainted for years. Then one day, while GMing a campaign, I decided to run an entire rabbit themed night as we were playing on Easter Monday. The campaign either had (I think, unless this was the first animal night....I think the Bovine Liberation Army came first....) , or ended up having an animal theme for a bit so all was good. I painted up the Doom Bunny and my wife painted up 4 Reaper bunnies from some familiar set or another (must have been one with weasels in it, I needed a bunch of those for a Hackmaster thing). I had a very fun time running the bunnies (unlike the BLA final encounter...anyone remember how long it took to create a high level minotaur blackguard in 3.x? It got critted 3 times in the first round and went down in the second. It got to act once and rolled a 2 or something....but I'm not bitter....) and since that time have gone out of my way to collect rabbit figures of all sorts. So, long story, er, long, it's time to start thinking about painting the rest. A big motivation for this is that I recently went in on a Killer Rabbits kickstarter and have a horde more coming soon. The other motivator to get going was Reaper releasing 03929: Drangus, Duckman Warrior, the hereditary enemy of bunnies everywhere! So step one was to find them. I spent a good hour digging through boxes and I "think" I found them all (excluding any painted exchange figures I may have received due to mentioning in EVERY survey I've done for years). So at the front we have the 4 Reaper bunnies and the Doom Bunny. The grey resin is Bombshell, as are their little doom bunny and jackelope (it still counts!) sidekicks. The right side are all Darksword. The left in front are Oathsworn. Back left there are 6 spear bunnies that I believe were Ral Partha from the same era as the Doom Bunny (they have the same shields). And at the back is Nibbles, from CMoN's Arcadia Quest, which a friend ordered for me with their KS order. BTW, if you know of any other bunny figs, feel free to mention them here, or PM me directly if you prefer. I'm always on the lookout for more. Up next will be bagging all the multipart figs now that I've got them sorted, then figuring out what to start with. That may not be a quick process, but I'll (theoretically) get there.

    Darksword Minis Owlbear and Cubs

    Just finished this for my sister! Hope it arrives close ish to Christmas but at least it's finally done - only been planning it since last year or so. These are the Darksword minis Owlbear and cubs, as my sissy has two kids, and we joke a lot about going all momma bear, I thought this would be perfect for her :D She's also a hunter so a woodland scene is right up her alley. Not my best job tbh, I'm pleased it came out ok but was hoping to get more detail etc in. I'd wanted to make the trees but no time =/ Better to get it done than sit on it another year. It's in a softball display case, on a wood base I picked up at Michaels. So no need to dust!

    Darksword Wolf

    I sculpted this wolf for Darksword last spring. I got a couple copies of it last week. Friday night, I decided to paint a version of it for a friend's 11 year-old girl who is crazy about wolves. When asked how she wanted it painted, she said tan with black stripes and spots. That took me a bit to get my head around, but I took the challenge and here is what I painted. It took me about 3 hours.
  13. I've had a lot of fun this august painting a bunch of miniatures. The first of them is that gorgeous sculpt from Darksword miniatures. Their figures have that old school fantasy look that it's really enjoyable, and a pleasure to paint. I love the character Medea, from Greek Mythology: my first idea was to copy the Medea on "Medea and Jason" from Pre-Raphaelite artist John William Waterhouse: but then I realized I've been using a red palette too much lately, so I changed to an orange-yellow one I've been wanting to try since I painted Ariel's wings. Since I've also abandoned the freehand arabesque I planned to paint and gived her a tan, the resemblance to what had to be is near to zero right now... Ultimately I'm happy with it, although I may have overhighlighted it. P.S. Thanks to the photo I realize now I painted her strabic....
  14. Pretty late in the mini to start a WIP but I could use some thoughts and suggestions, in particular in the area of contrast. I am looking to bring up the contrast on the scales but I don't want to shift to an orange or pink. The skin shows a decent contrast but to my eye it's more orange than red at this point. I love the different shading going on for each scale type but I want more from the upper body scales without going into orange and yellow. My challenge to myself this year is to gel my reds to be red. It's not an easy color to work with and a lot of these paints are either transparent or chalk when thinned. It has been a long road to get this far but I want a richer color. Thoughts would be welcomed along with critique. Pictures were snapped off my work bench but I will shoot for better ones this weekend. In the meantime... the photos are raw and taken without flash to try and show the pieces in the most natural light The body. Trying for three textures plus the crest. The heavy armored back scales are under layered with corpreal shadow to make them stand out, then shaded from a dark purple red to blood red. The body scales are undershaded with brick red and shaded up to a highlight of Phoenix red. The body skin on the arms starts at Gore red and shaded up to a lantern yellow. Problem is with the body. I would like more highlight but whatever I try changes the tone to either orange or pink. The head: still a work in progress. Needing to clean up the horns and again highlight without going to the orange or pink Upper side of wing. Looking pretty good although a set of missed mold lines is making me repaint the horns Wing underside. Subdued and darker as this part is solidly cast in shadow and the horns are in the process of being repainted... again So thanks again for anyone who would like to help out.

    Reaper & Darksword Minis

    Hi It's been a while since I've posted. Here are my most recent minis painted in November/December. Also my first two Darksword mini's are in the group. I'll try to get better at photography, I made a Light box, but the results weren't good, so I just placed the mini's on the desk. Can't decide flash or no flash, I feel the flash brings out the highlights more though. Also the mini's have a weird mix of NMM attempts and Metallic paints. Mini's are; Anduriel - Reaper Bjorn - Reaper Maria - Reaper Trista - Reaper Petyr - Darksword Roose - Darksword Thanks for Looking

    Chipmunk mage and Cloud Giantess

    Heya! Just started two new projects and I am excited to share. I didn't know which one to do first so I prepped them both. This is my first time at a resculpt. Nothing major. I covered the mold lines on Yephima's hair and on her back. For the chipmunk mage, resculpted the tortoise shell because I didn't think there was enough definition. Also I had to fix the scroll because there was a hole. I am undecided on the color schemes, but for Yephima I am thinking a clouds at sunrise palette. Any thoughts from you folks?
  22. I'm going to be playing in a second D&D group starting in a couple of weeks so I decided to get started on painting up my new character. I'm using darksword miniatures male warrior as my 2-handed vengeance paladin. It's really the only two handed weapon sculpt I could find that I really liked. I decided to just leave him on his base with how the sword is. I had to assemble the hand with the sword as there were two options for weapons, the greatsword and a great axe. Mold lines really weren't too bad. I decided to go with a red cloak since he's going to be from the order of the gilded eye. Their symbol looks to be a red background with a white gauntlet with an eye on the fist. I don't think I'm going to add the symbol to the cloak. Maybe if he had a shield I would give some freehand a try. Most of the base base coating is completed and I got started on the eyes. The armor I base coated a dark grey as I plan to highlight up from there to make the armor white. So the only areas the base coat should be showing is the shaded areas. I might add or subtract some gold details on the armor as I progress. Also the boots seem like they should be leather the more that I look at the details. For the most part they don't look too bad. I'm going to try and get the black outline a little thinner when I do the skin. Also the left eye is a little larger than the right, but I don't think it looks too bad. I'm undecided on touching it at this point because I don't want to really mess it up.

    DSM: Angelica

    Angelica is finally finished. I went back to my WIP thread, and I realized I started her over a year ago. She has been sitting on my desk waiting to be based for a while now. I decided to go with a relatively simple base. I really enjoyed painter her up.. I hope you enjoy seeing her finished up. I certainly do. Thanks for looking and any C&C you feel to give.
