  1. Since I like painting when it is dark outside I normally don't take photos, to combat this and get into the habit I am starting this thread. I will post some of my recent work, including things that are 95% done and are only missing a base. Some of the photos may not be the best, but they should suffice. Any advice and criticism is welcome. So let us get started: An old Pandora Metal starter set from Malifaux (and some Victoria Miniatures): The skin for the baby was done using Mars Violet (PR101), Nickel Titanate Yellow (PY53) and Titanium White (PW6). I may have also used Titanium Buff (PW6:1) The litle girl is sculpted with a basket full of candy, but since she is holding some scissors I decided to make it arts and crafts materials and a mirror. I went for a Black, Red and White colour scheme do to the spade on her shirt which reminded me of cards. The black is painted using Titanium White and Perylene Black (PBk31, which is green-ish in glazes and when tinted with white), I also decided against priming the figure and used the metalic to my advantage by glazing the Perylene over it. The redish colour is created by mixing some Quinacridone Magenta(PR122) with Red Iron Oxide(PR101). The mirror was done with Prussian Blue (PB27, I just love how it behaves. Only one of the manufacterurs, Matise, that I can get locally sells it in acrylics due to the the pigment chemicaly reacting with the acrylic binders), and Titanium White. The white cloth was done using Titanium White, Nickel Titanate Yellow and some Burnt Umber (PBr7). Skin and wood is a mixture of Red Iron Oxide, Burnt Umber, Nickel Titanate Yellow and Titanium White/Buff. Vampire sending little girl to collect blood with those scissors: As you can see she is tiny. Some Reaper Bones, mostly from Bones 4: Comments on them: - The monk and scribe were fun to paint. - The death statue was so nice I decided to make it a summon instead, with otherworldy energy showing throught the cracks. - The old lady with a cane had her dress done by glazzing colours (ohh look I could make it behaved similar to contrast paints for a litteral fraction of the cost. AU$10 for 60mL of paint + AU$20 for 237mL of glaze medium + some dish soap/flow improver, wonder how many cidatel pots I can make with that especially with the contrast costing about $AU12 per 30mL pot) - The pillar has some meted bodies flondering in pain, fun to paint. - The Red/Black lady is some Pyrole Red (PR254) + Cerulean Blue(PB35) , and Perylene Black + Titanium White, the skin is made of Mars Violet and Titanium White. Similar to the vampire lord with little girl. - Fish lady has a pipe in her hat. Some minor conversion My dreadmare herbalist arrived without the cylinder, I personally didn't really like that design choice so I decided not to ask for a replacement. Instead I was going to do some "magic". First the gap was filled with some green stuff. This involved resculpting some of the satchel on her frock, the sides of her frock, some skirt and the bag strap. = Then I painted the dress and blocked in some of the colours. Dress: Ultramarien Blue (PB29) + Titanium White Frock and shoes: Raw Umber(PBr7), Titanium White and Yellow Ochre(PY43) Bag, hedgehogs and hair: Raw Umber . After a working on and of on her she is mostly finished: The bag recieved a glaze of Quinacridone Violet (PV19) after it was highlighted with Titanium White + Yellow Ochre +Raw Umber. Greens are Ultramarine Blue mixed with different yellows, the minty green is made by Ultramarine Blue and Nickel Titanate Yellow. Red is some Red Iron Oxide and Cadmium Red Medium (PR108). You may be able to see the eyes and nose of the hedgehogs. Perylene Black was used for the metalics. I tried to give her some freckles, they look good from the front but I am not sure if I am to happy with one of the side looks. The flower was Nickle Titanate Yellow + Titanium White glazed with Indian Yellow (PY139). Practice With FreeHand I did some freehand practice on the Bones 4 milkmaid: This was achieved by first drawing a square with some diluted Perylene Black and then convering everthing inside and oustide it with thin layers of titanium white. The forest was first drawn by just when blending some Prussian Blue, Titanium white and a yellow. The Perylene Black may also have been used. The mountain was draw with some Prussian Blue and white, this was grayed with some orangy colour which I can't remember. A lighters glaze was used on the sky. Luckily this blended with the snow covered top of the mountain so I outlined the mountain with the same orange I used to gray the prussian. Then I glazed some Indian Yellow up from the mountain. This created an effect that I really enjoyed (didn't really make vissible green due to the sky being a greyed blue). The top of the dress looked a little empry so I painted a titanium white cloud that had a shadow of the deep grayed prussain at the top and a reflection of the orange at the bottom. The freehand is the centre piece so I did not want to detract from it with the rest of the paint job. To do this I made the dress a desaturated green, but found it to be to empty by itself. To make it pop a little more I drew a patern on it by mixing the dress colour with a lot of Titanium White and then diluting that with some flow improve and lots of water. Then I sketched the lines with the highly translucent mixture. To further highlighty the stripes which were lost in the folds of the dress (bad locaiton choice on the vertical stripes) I decided to make a higher Titanium White mixture that had less water and dot that in each line intercept. Now the model is drying (mostly finished) and if the weather permits I will have some nice pictures "Soon". Eureka Minatures Such characterful miniatures they produce, I will probably spurge for some more on my birthday. 1st Picture: Some duelists. One of them is so secure in his victory he is holding his folded cloak in one hand, or is he hidding something there? 2nd Picutre: An older lady feeding some chickens, currently missing chickens. 3rd Picture: has some muscians, I did not take a close up of all of them. They each have their own chairs and sheet music. There are 4 dogs, 2 of them are holding buckets with something in them. 2 chickens, a rooster and 2 chicks 4th-6th Pictures: musician closeups. 7th Picture: That lady behind the cow did something so scandalous that the lady further back started chocking, requiring her friend to help. Otherways is just 2 milkmaids, one milking a cow and there is a really curious auroch bull looking at the bucket. 8th Picture: I am not sure if blowing a seashell horn into the ear of a person is a bright idea, especially if they are dressed like that and holding a scepter staff while you only have a loincloth. The scepter is quiet heavy and a nice weapon, just a warning. Churning some Butter One of the Eureka Miniatures is this boy, he is not that small but still recognisable as a child (goes up to around the shoulder of adult miniatures, so if we take into acount the base of the vampire lord he is only up to underneath his arm.) The chemise is painted using some glazes of Transparent Red Oxide (PR101) and Burnt Umber over a base coat of Titanium White and Yellow Ochre. Everything but the close and hair has a basecoat of Burnt Umber. The shirt is some greyed out (I think I used Transparent Red Oxide in this case) Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White. The trouses are Nickle Titanate Yellow, Ultramarine Blue and some Titanium White (they may have been greyed out a little with Transparen Red Oxide). The trim of his trouses is Mars Violet with some Titanium White. Grumpydot Now this old lady is telling us to get off her lawn, so I brightened up her day by splattering her pinkish dress with some dots. The pink was made out of Cadmium Red Medium and Titanium White. This mixture was further lightened out with Titanium White to make the dots (lots of water with flow aid used to make them nice an easy to paint). The lady was still grumpy so maybe she did not like those dots? Too late for her then since htey are staying, instead lets give her some stripes. Her under-dress was painted a dark green (forgot the mixture, it may have involved some Ivory Black (PBk9) and Green Gold(PY129)) and the stripes were painted using some Nickle Titanate Yellow, Titanium White and the green mixture. To make them stand out more the shadows were glazed with some Perylene Black (I think it was that). Some Burnt Umber, Yellow Ochre, Nickle Titanate Yellow and Titanium White were used to paint the wood,shoes and headscarf. Her hair was painted using Perylene/Ivory Black and Titanium White. Reaper Speakers Now this is not the best pictures, the hair looks washed out (it has far deeper shadows than what is seen here). The hair for left and middle is Raw Umber, Yellow Ochre and Titanium white mixtures. The metalics were some Vallejo Liquid Metal "writing rubbed out" Gold. Either old gold or red gold, but sadly my bottle has the name of the colour rubbed out. The right lady, had her dress painted by first making a grisalis of Titanium White and Ivory Black, this was then glazed with Pthalo Blue (PB15:3). Her yellow decoration where painted using Nickle Titanate Yellow and Titanium White glazed with Indian Yellow. Inner Dress was a mmixture of Prussian Blue and either some Nickle Titanate Yellow or Titanium Buff. Hair were washes/glazes of Transparent Red Oxide, Indian Yellow and Burnt Umber. The book has some squigles that you can see in real life, but didn't come out in the picture. The middle lady has a dress of Hanza Yellow Light (PY3) and Pthalo Green (PG 7) which I think is the blue shade. I can't remember her inner dress. The leftmost lady is painted using OILS, it took her a while to dry, but I just love how using Prussian Blue and then wiping the top came out for her dress. The inner dress is painted with Green Gold. Her scepter handle is some Quinacridone Magenta and white. Some of my slowly "Speed" painted Handgunners I spent about 10-20 minutes on the skin of each figure and then left them bare. Over the course of the last month when I finished doing some painting and had some colour left I would take one of the figure and start blocking in a section of their attire, all sections, but the skin, are highlighted with Colour used+ Titanium White. Overall I would Say that each figure took me about 30-60 minutes of paint time. There are still 2 models left (double of each sculpt). 1:72 scale Freehand This guy is about the same hight as the butter churning boy, except he is a lot thinner (somewhat realistic proportions), I allready finished painting him. Sadly I don't have a photo of him right now, so the onnly thing I can show you is that I painted stripes on his throuses. The throuses and cape are Cerulean Blue and Titaniym White, The stripes are heavily diluted Perylene Black.
  2. Eureka has a two-pack of figures in their Pax Limpopo line called "Hench and Coach," and they are the most corpulent double-chinned British spherical bastards imaginable; Dickensian caricatures after the style of Nast or Tenniel. I had to have them. Didn't bother affixing the coachwhips. They are about halfling-sized in 32mm scale, and walrus-like giants in 15mm scale. You should be able to hear a bassoon-and-tuba soundtrack when looking at them. I'd also painted up some minis from Artizan's "Thrilling Tales" line: Miss Greentree, Private Campbell, and Tankie Bob. Each of them is full of personality. Greentree I painted as an Agent Carter-type. Campbell was where I found tartan is not my forte. Could have come out worse. Bob is a scruffy fanatic and I love the sculpt. I figured Ungentlemanly Warfare was a good setting for the three of them. More pictures below.
  3. Realized my collection had some major lacunae in world cultures, and needed more pre-modern Mesoamericans! So I got these Aztec feather suit warriors from Eureka. Tried using mostly GW contrasts on them; can report that the red and blue work AMAZING. You can tell the fella in green is in charge, both by the high-status turquoise cloth and by the rad shield. I had fun with these. Gender diversity is important, so I also picked up Caroline here from Antediluvian Minis' Lost World line. She is shown with a mini-Couatl from the Familiars 2 set (77196). More pix in the spoilers box. And if there are macahuitls involved. I'd be irresponsible not to include the very representative of the Winged Serpent on earth! (Turnaround below.) Now for some invaders! I wanted some conquistadors for Weird West purposes (Zamacona-types as in "The Mound," ghosts of Cibola-quests, etc.) Picked up a set from Eureka of the most recognizable and armored. Painted as fancy as possible, An unexpected Other from beyond the bounds of the known world, with impossible weapons and unheard-of beasts. This seems like quite the problem for our Aztecs! Well, early-modern-era problems require early-modern-era solutions. Nanahuatzin, the Chancred God, isn't the most glamorous in the pantheon, but he *gets the job done.* (This is Antediluvian's Pestilent Lich; both he and the Conquistador Zombies are from Antediluvian's Conquest of Maztlan line. What a magnificently rotted and pustule-ridden sculpt.) Backgrounds and props include GreenStuffWorld rollers in clay and foamboard, Hydra's Saurian Idol, those Nolzur's cannons, and a skull from RAFM. I enjoyed this one a lot. C&C welcome!
  4. Look at that title. Are you made of stone? You want to see exactly that thing, and brother, sister or other, THAT IS WHAT WE GOT HERE. Painted mostly with GW contrast, reaper sample green, and some craft-store metallics. My favorite detail: the comparatively dainty holster for a big ol' drum-fed gun. Here's the big fella with the rest of General Jombi's Guerilla Troops (also from Eureka, posted elsewhere): And because I already had the camera out, here's All the Apes I Got.
  5. These maginificent minis were donated by @malefactus to add to my Lost World Project. WIP Here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=109 Eureka Miniatures ( Pond Wars Range). I painted the Frog riders as Poison Dart Frogs and the Toad mounts as Bombina Orientalis ( Chinese Firebelly Toads). I had both as pets in my youth. Here is the unit, and in the latter pics on my Jungle Photobackdrop Board. EDIT : I wasn't completely satisfied with Red Frog, so a little Vallejo Heavy Warm Grey and some Reaper Sample Paint for his mouth.
  6. A lovely sculpt from Bombshell, Mi-Sher is billed as a Mongolian princess. I had a lot of fun with her dress. This post seems as good as any for a pair of Chinese Pirates I got years ago from Eureka. They both have a pudao or glaive. They were among my first forays into freehand back in the day--the one with the hat has a silver loong dragon on his back, and the hatless one, a crane.
  7. It's about that time of year! Painted a while back, but didn't photograph until recently. The Horned Hunter, Bones version. 89033. A magnificent Fey Lord of the Wild Hunt. A couple of Eureka Miniatures fantasy-line Fauns that look suitable for the Horned Hunter's henchfey. The beautiful and insectile Fairy, 14469. Remember, the Fey may LOOK human, but they don't think like people at ALL. And her little brother, the Feral Child faerie from Familiars 2, 77196. This guy gives off an air of tiny menace and unpredictability. Maybe he'll trade a shiny apple for a riddle, maybe he'll cut your hamstrings in your sleep. Maybe both! To avoid an overwhelming tide of photos, other angles are shown below:
  8. I promised "other, different Space Apes," and now it is time to deliver. These are from Eureka's Boiler Suit Apes line, and I wish they would cast more (many things are out of stock and have been for some time.) A few uplifted apes and monkeys have gone rogue! They issued a manifesto calling for simian liberty and a small area of sovereign territory in a rainforest, to be run by the apes themselves (don't say it) as an (don't say it!) agrarian representative democracy. The separatists are led by the mighty and charismatic silverback, General Jumbi. He is both their military and administrative leader (don't say it) and all decisions of importance go through him, as their (don't say it!) unquestioned highest authority. The General's second-in-command is Cornelius, an engineering genius of an uplifted chimpanzee. His custom-engineered multipurpose flamethrower is feared by all who have encountered the war-band and survived. But Cornelius is conflicted; while he loves burning things, his complicity in killing weighs him down emotionally (don't say it). This pyromaniac's guilt tormenting him is a (don't say it!) constant source of turmoil and misery. Here is Zephyr, their communications and technology specialist. Much of the group's funding comes from his financial hacking and judicious investments (don't say it!). Formerly an administrative assistant at a major conglomerate, he is well-versed in (don't say it!) co-ordination, logistics, and resource management. And here are Rango and Tango, artillery specialists. Under the General's brilliant direction, they fend off Earth Government troops in a series of (don't say it) small-group precision hit-and-run strikes, using (DON'T SAY IT!!!) superior knowledge of the terrain and bushcraft to avoid detection while inflicting massive punishment on the more technologically equipped vehicle-bound force. DON'T. SAY. IT.
  9. Eureka has a line of "Boiler Suit Apes." In this line, there is a collection of cosmonaut APES IN SPACE. What, am I made of stone?! Of course I had to get them. Uplifted apes are often used in the spacefuture as cheap, durable labor during the terraforming process--under the watchful eye of the Earth government, of course. Many work with bioengineered soil-tilling arthropods. Here are some scenes of a few of them overseeing the cultivation of a Neptunian moon. The gourdfruit trees are already coming along nicely. There are some rumors that the Space Apes have an underground separatist movement, resentful of their proper status as second-class citizens, and that they might try claiming some of their exoplanetary habitats as their own birthright, bought with the sweat of their low, beetling brows and the strength of their hairy, hairy arms. But who would believe such wild tales of our loyal, friendly helpers? Anyway, here's Taskforce Leader Aperella. A Charisma implant helps her keep her workers in line. And the Stakhanovite albino neogorilla Bonzo. He has the strength of ten men and the work ethic of at least five! Look at those bared teeth. That's the smile of job satisfaction. And here's Charlie. Always a curious fellow, that one. Chief Arthropod Wrangler. It's uncanny the way he can almost communicate with those buggers. Meet Diana! Diana oversees the environmental controls. It's a little warmer than the humans like in here, Diana, and the humidity is off by about 10 percent! She's doing her best, though, bless her. Keep up the good work, Diana! And last but certainly not least, Eddie. We've tried to get him to stop shambling, but old habits, you know! Eddie is a good worker, but did you know he actually failed his intelligence test? The psychologist administering it said the only way to score that low was to deliberately *try* to flunk! Poor, simple Eddie. And here's the whole gang! Wait--why do they have the emergency gauss rifles? And what's Cosmo doing here? W...What are you doing, fellows? ...Pals?

    Harlem Unbound

    Black Cat Bases has a "Mr. Big" in their civilians/townsfolk line, and I thought he'd do fine as John Barlow, businessman, impresario, patron of the arts, and nightclub owner. Our investigative journalist in the peach dress, and the newsy hanging about, are again from Murch's Pulp News Hounds. The young flapper in the peacock ensemble is from Eureka. She was actually one of the first minis I tried freehanding! You can tell Mr. Barlow's patience with Miss Imelda's questions (regarding how, exactly, his new venture is being funded) is running short.
  11. More class-conscious minis! Featuring a pair of Artizan's Domestic Servants, Reeves and Maisy; Artizan's Remy as the long-suffering waiter and Signor Ferrari as a Titan of Industry, and another of Eureka's 1920's Women as a Bright Young Thing. Remy, unfortunately, had a cat-related fall which gave him an unwanted nose job. The tycoon looks like his paint is abrading; that's an artifact of silver-on-grey pinstriping. Looks good in 3D but did not photograph well at all. TFW you've had about enough of your employer's broccoli: The whole crew
  12. Maybe the butler DID do it! He's got shifty eyes, and with employers like this...plenty of motive. Butler is from Black Cat townsfolk, if memory serves. Lord Snoblaugh there is one of Eureka's Pax Limpopo personalities, Wellyn Shaftesbury. (chaise-longue is also Eureka), and we all know and love 60036, the Visbaronetness.
  13. Just wanted to post some pictures of a few figures I finished up recently in an effort to clear off some of the stuff that's been gathering dust on my paint table, so they'd be ready for the game table. I'm not 100% sure of the identity of each of these figures other than manufacturer. The first is an old Heartbeaker Hobbies and Games sword-woman. The second is a pirate from Eureka The third was some sort of witch or sorceress (I can't exactly remember), from the Deadlands game.

    Last Batch of 2016

    I put a spray varnish coat on the final batch of figures for 2016. This group includes three Bones for the club's ongoing Frostgrave project, two Eureka Dark Ages Archers (a Viking and a Norman) destined for Saga warbands, and a converted Bones Bathalian, who is headed for the stars. That is to say, he's going to be part of my Rogue Stars collection, for Osprey's new generic small group SF game, at least while we figure out if we'll be playing it. Here's to hoping for a better 2017!
  15. This is my first foray into 15mm Sci-Fi, redoing The Worlds In My Head in 15mm so I can fight larger battles with more vehicles. Here's the Nathi. The troopers are by Eureka Miniatures, the vehicles are kitbashed toys, bikes are CAV parts and the walkers are the "Simba" CAV.

    My ReaperCon 2013 Entry

    this is the entry I worked up for the Open Painting contest at ReaperCon. This is the first time I have entered a competition, and was very pleased that I received a bronze for the effort. The minis are Eureka Minis Jazz Band (the singer is actually, one of the swing dancers from the accompanying set). the backdrop is basswood and corrugated cardboard, and the base is a plaque from Hobby Lobby, the boards were scribed in. It was a very fun piece to paint
