  1. (forgive me, very new to the forums) Andowyn Thrushmoor!It's been awhile since I've painted a plain ol' character miniature. I spent the better part of today working on her and I’m overall pleased with how she came out. I really want to double my skill level by the time Bones V is delivered and I’m proud of my progress! Slowly but surely figuring out how to do faces, this one looks pretty okay, though her right eye is funky. Since this is my first form post, the picture is her next to my first miniature! It's about four years old and I keep it around the rest of my collection in a place of honor
  2. Presenting Remus Raducan, part of the Blood Wolf faction in Reapers Dreadmere setting. Struggled to find this guy that interesting to paint, and as a result he ended up a bit lacklustre. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  3. Presenting Mary Jo, a member of the River Widows faction from Reapers Dreadmere setting. Had a lot of fun painting this one, and as a bonus she turned out pretty decent too! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  4. Painted up the cart from Reaper's Bones 4 Dreadmere expansion, and did some modifications to it. First, I installed magnets into three base and the crate and barrel so they wouldn't fall off, and then created a bunch of cabbages because I'm a huge Avatar fan. But then, I needed a cabbage salesman, and so I did some modifications to a Bones 4 villager (head swap, added hat, modified the hand, etc) and painted him as a close approximation. Finally, just for fun, I threw in the halfling Kineticist that I painted up in Aang's colors a year or so ago...
  5. This is the thread where I'll paint my Dreadmere stuff to go with new Bones V stuff when it arrives. I started with my extra Gulper ( 44038 ) and rowboat (Dreadmere Fishing Boat 44032 ). starting with Gulper inspiration - the redtail catfish.
  6. More WHFRP-suitable characters I forgot to post in October! Sheriff Drumfasser, 44018, is a fine officious Authority Figure. With his fancy hat and proclamation, he could also do duty as a magic-user of some kind. Gave him a green color scheme; it's not ideal but I wanted to color-code my monster hunters. More shots: And Brother Hammond, the mendicant friar. Warm browns and yellowish tans. More turnaround: And of course, ACTION SHOTS! Who doesn't love reading incantations from crumbling vellum that end in "...by these names I conjure and adjure thee!"? Especially in an unhallowed place shunned by the decent folk of the town, under the moon's maddening light? (Pro tip: Have another scroll ready for abjuring those you have called up; big time-saver there.) Guest appearances by a Spirit, 77098, in green, and the Ghoulie Bag female Spectre, in purple. And here's Brother Hammond engaging in theological dialogue with a conflicted monster. You can imagine the soteriological, teleological, and pneumatological difficulties that inhere with a being stitched together from half-a-dozen corpses and brought to grotesque life in a parody of both creation and resurrection--and that's not even considering the crisis of identity. If any monster needs pastoral counseling (or, indeed, would be willing to listen and able to keep up), it's Frankenstein's.
  7. My DM asked if I had a unicorn mini for our session this weekend. I didn't have one but I did have this mini. I actually thought it was a reimagined Peryton initially so I went with a fantastical color palette. Something bright and happy before it reveals itself evil, lol. The most dangerous creatures can be the most colorful. It was nagging me that it didn't fit the Peryton characteristics so I looked into a little further and realized it was a nature spirit instead. I would have used a more natural color palette if I had realized that in advance but I kind of dig it anyway. Trying my hand at making an interesting base for the first time, I wanted another item to help anchor it. I played around with a few ideas and then remembered I had this little mini. The wolptinger is from the Familiar line from Raging Hereos. He has the most adorable angry face. I just see this story playing out in my head of this beautiful, colorful Nature Spirit wandering the world with his more natural, angry bunny buddy. I think of the blending of blues and purples came out successfully enough. It's a step in the right direction for me. For the first time, creating a real base for it, that was complicated and fun. The moral of the stories is that while a plan is best, sometimes you just roll with it anyway and it will turn out alright.
  8. Hey, all! Its been a little while and I finally sat down and painted something. I put these guys together and I'm really happy with the shading. I wanted to put some water on the bases, so I tried wrapping them with plastic and pouring realistic water in. It... did not go according to plan. The water cured unevenly, shrank, left weird tide lines, partially peeled off... Basically everything that could go wrong with it went wrong. Luckily, I had sealed the model before pouring the water, so I was able to peel it off with an exacto and some tweezers. I salvaged what I could and I think they still look pretty good.
  9. Oppulence! They. Own. Everything. Sometimes adventurers survive their... well, their adventures, and retire with a fortune to live like kings and queens. Here we see Delia "The red terror" Axemaiden and Konrad "Quickfingers", the fastest rogue the realms ever seen... and Klauth the Pug, their beloved only son. Now retired, they enjoy the dolce vita.

    Madame Delia 3978

    Madame Delia is available in metal as of this week, and is part of the Core Set in the Bones 5 Kickstarter, so I thought people might enjoy taking a look at my take on her. I talk about my thoughts on painting the cloth and colour scheme choices a bit on my blog. I do plan to give her a base, just figured I'd work on getting some paint on some other Kickstarter stuff and then circle back around to that. https://birdwithabrush.com/2019/10/17/madame-delia/
  11. “Is that a troll over there?” “Oi, so, as I were sayin’, it’s like we’re the blokes doin’ all the fighting and whatnot, but they’re makin’ a lot more coin and owning all the land, see? It’s not fair, and I were sayin’ just th’other day to Mikey that we should—“ ROOOOOOOOOOOOAR “Uhoh.”
  12. Next up to bat, a selection of the denizens of Dreadmere, from Reaper Miniatures: Bones 4
  13. Couple of quick paint jobs here. The giants worms came from the Dreadmere expansion in KS4. I don't know product numbers yet. I used them to test some Citadel Contrast paint. Started with white spray primer and it took 3 coats to get complete coverage. Glad I wasn't trying to do any kind of detail work on them. They are posed with a 3d printed fire pit my husband made for me.
  14. I decided to paint my ‘Crimson Herald’ as more ‘King in Yellow’. First figure I’ve painted in a while but I’ve been meaning to try this color scheme on him since I picked him up.
  15. I think I have got the right mini name. He or she is from Fan Favourites. Painted simply, Scale 75 black metal, then a wash, then drybrush with Army Painter rough iron/rust colour. Tried to do a water effect on the base, layers of gloss mod podge with green ink and bits of wood from a log bag in the middle.
  16. Loved painting this little chap from Dreadmere. Had ideas of painting him up as a villain or grim ranger but went back to a traditional bright Halfling pallette.
  17. Here are two of the NPCs From the Dreadmere expansion. Have painted the boat as well (brown, not much to see) and am painting the giant carp. All done working up from a leather brown primer, Army Painter strong tone wash, then cream primer for light coloured areas and skin. Then I did the base coat and finished off with a mid brown wash from Army Painter.
  18. Am going to use these for Frostgrave and Rangers of Shadow Deep so avoided too 'evil' a colour scheme. There is so much character in Fruella in particular. It's just that air of having your ex husband's head in a sack...
  19. Painted up this Lich using washes and coloured primer again. Then applied lots of pastels for a desaturated grimy look. The base is gloss mod podge over dark blue grey, with some sweepings from a bag of logs stuck on whilst wet, and the whole thing given an umber wash when glue was dry. Really love this figure and again good to see it in Bones and as a one piece mini.
  20. Here is my favourite mini from the Bones 4 kickstarter. I just find the idea brilliant and it was very easy to paint. The turtle is based on a Vallejo Japanese green primer, washed with green, and leather and red brown primer, washed with sepia. Then worked up from there. The handler was initially red brown, washed with Army Painter mid brown. Water effect with gloss mod podge again, and fixed the tufts in whilst the glue was wet. Would happily back a KS entirely dedicated to a flintstones style community in Dreadmere based in employing various turtles, dinos, lizards, and other creatures. Perhaps a bit niche though.
  21. I decided to stop being silly and start posting my progress here. :) For this diorama, I'm using 02648: Schumacher, 03631: Quoralei, and 77511: Xiloxoch with some pretty heavy modifications. This is going to be a long post. Strap in and get ready! The concept for my diorama starts with me deciding what a swamp mermaid (or 'Meremaid) looked like. I got on pinterest and started looking around for evil mermaids, etc. I know that, historically, mermaids/sirens lured men to their death, but generally speaking people think more Ariel anymore. I didn't want that. I wanted something that looked pretty on top, was deadly under the water. When I was searching for miniatures, I would find one or the other, so I knew I would have to do some converting. I also knew I wanted a kneeling man, preferably with an outreaching arm. After some searching on my own, and asking around on the forums, I ended up deciding on these component pieces. The man was going to be the easiest conversion, so let's start with him. I pretty much just cut off his sword, modeled a thumb (cause I accidentally snipped it!), and bent his arm. it I'm going to go back in and reduce that thumb a little, but it was arguing and I was tired. :) It will be painted like a glove since it has some separation from the sleeve now. I would love it if I could either unbend his fingers or sculpt new ones on, but that did not look right when I tried it. I may end up doing a complete hand transplant, but we'll see. Next up, my 'Meremaid. The reason I've been doing all this practice resin is that I want her to be submerged from the waist down. I'm not interested in doing a whole lot of converting and painting and then having my resin screw up and wanting to die. :) So, started with 2 component parts: This is after both had some cropping done. I removed the head of the naga, and the dangly bits from Quoralei's arms. They were just getting in the way, and not what I imagined for her. Then a little more surgery: That was a scary cut to commit to. Even though I can order more and nothing is set in stone, it was worrisome. Test fitting her into her new legs: See how her neck is bent funny? I think she had some difficulty somewhere along the way. I straightened out her head and one of her arms a bit, and I think it made a big difference. I had started this mini last year sometime as a quick paintjob that I then hated. That's why she's got some paint on her. I also decided I wanted to redo the 'fins' on her back, so she has some weird growths for a bit. :) Greenstuff begins! I am by no means a master sculptor (see the above thumb), but I feel like I did this justice, especially considering it will be somewhat submerged. I knew I wanted some sort of dorsal fins on her, I just had to make them myself. I used pieces of the existing model and cut them up and thinned them out a bit to give the effect I was looking for. A little smoothing, a little priming, and she looks good as new! I decided to do a little zenithal priming on her so I could see the details and see if anything stuck out as 'wrong'. I also decided that I wanted her to have a little bit of a fin on the end of her tail, so I cut that out of some bonesium I had laying around. I like the asymmetrical, angular look of it. When I looked at her now, I wanted her to have a few more details, so I added some skulls to the base and gave her a crown. It's super fancy because it's made from toothpicks. lol I also threw on a coat of black green, because I want her to look more crocodilian than fishy... We'll see how she turns out. I also decided I wanted to add a bunch of foliage and swamp-y stuff, so I used my leftover green stuff to play around. Again, NOT a pro at this. Definitely have a steep learning curve ahead of me! I made a cute little lizard for her base, just because. I intended to use the snail shells in her crown, but they were just too big. I didn't think starfish and normal 'mermaid' stuff would work in her hair since she's not in the 'sea'. I may do some moss or net-type things eventually. For now, I'm happy with her conversion and hope to move forward with my resin experiments into actually pouring them onto practice bases instead of just into molds. Let me know what you think!!! I'd love any C&C since I'm hoping to enter this at Reapercon. Also, if you're a judge, look away!! :D
  22. Presenting D'Vandra Lukesia, the final member of my Dreadmere Begins quartet. Despite having some trouble with her in the beginning, I'm pleased with the final results. It's just a shame my bottle of Vallejo Still Water has failed me yet again, no more water effect bases for me I think. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  23. Presenting The Herald, the third member of my Dreadmere group. At the suggestion of Crowley, I added more tentacles to connect him to his base a bit better. While I'm happy with how this went, I don't think he's as well painted as the other two. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  24. Presenting Jakob Knochengard - Zombie Slayer, the first finished mini from my Dreadmere Begins WIP thread. I've been really taken with the minis Reaper have been producing for their Dreadmere setting, hopefully a few more of the ones they're doing for Bones 4 get released in metal. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  25. Presenting Andowyn - The Mischievous Druid, the second finished mini from my Dreadmere Begins WIP thread. I loved how detail heavy Andowyn turned out to be, she's just covered in stuff! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
