  1. With my Cadian army nearly finished and my wife's army at a playable state I decided to take a break from 40k painting. Since I've been painting for our actual armies for so long I decided to start a new WIP thread rather than use my old random projects thread (the "Too Many Projects" thread will be replaced by this one). But before getting too far ahead I'd like to show everyone just how bad my box got while painting for 40k and killteam. This of course doesn't include any GW boxes I may or may not have on hand to paint "just for fun". I swear I'll paint those Skaven sooner or later. Though some of the figures were closer to completion, I simply couldn't resist painting one I've had my eye on for months (I mean this quite literally as the figure sat on my lamp's base since I first got it and probably ended up in the background of many of my progress shots). When I first pulled this from a box of goodwill I knew exactly what I wanted to do. This figure just screamed Don Quixote, at least to me it did. So that's exactly how I painted it and though it may just be a simple paint job I'm already thinking about creating a new character just to use it.

    Orcs of the Severed Hand

    Some old school orcs painted up with the old school inspiration of things like classic AD&D art and The Hobbit cartoon from the '70s. Had a lot of fun with these guys because of their character. Pic heavy one today as the camera was refusing to focus well on groups for some reason. I like this guy because he looks nervous. This guy is one of my favorites because of his dynamic pose.

    Grenadier Swamp dragon

    Another one finished up over the holiday weekend. This is from the second dragon of the month series that Grenadier did and contained a lot of really strange and interesting dragons that I am proud to own. This one came to me without a tongue and with damaged spines. I replaced the tongue but decided I liked the broken spines so I left them that way. I had fun with this. Again , not master work but fun and interesting to do and some day some adventurer is going to get snapped up like a bug from this guy!
  4. Going a little ambitious here as I've never tried doing this many multiples at once. 3 different old school army sets from the 80s and 90s. From front to back we have Grenadier's Orcs of the Severed Hand, Grenadier's Ogres of the East, and some of Ral Partha's Gargantuan Orcz. The last group is not a complete set, but random picks I got from Iron Winds Metal. Though they're called gargantuan, they're not so much nowadays as can be seen when you compare them to a Bones orc. Also, as they're random picks, some of them don't have all their parts, like the one above on the left is suppose to have a shield. So big Bones over there made a sacrifice as I actually wasn't too keen on painting him anyway. And this next guy is a standard bearer, but I don't have the standard. So I put something together with a Reaper Weapons Pack piece and a GW skull.

    Grenadier Great Griffon

    Hi, I've been working on this for a while and have finally finished him! This is one of the Battling Behemoths from Grenadier Miniatures, and is huge almost a foot high, weighing 14lbs (lead). I took a photo for reference to show the scale with a reaper figure when I was assembling him. I was looking at the wall murals in Knossos Greece as a starting point for some of his body designs, as well as some winged griffons in grecian pottery for the designs on the wings. Hope you guys like him! Also if anyone knows the sculptor's name, I would like to give credit to them too, please let me know, thanks!
  6. This is the mermaid from the old Grenadier boxed set #6004, "Monsters of Mythology" from their Fantasy Lords range. I used to have the set, once upon a time. This was one of my favorite figures from it (though I painted it very differently back in the day and I am pretty sure my memories of how well I painted it are seriously rose-tinted). There isn't a WIP thread. And because I do like to play around with photographic backgrounds and water effects:
  7. So, as I mentioned, I was given a pristine old Grenadier set of Champions supervillains for Christmas. On the cover is a little splash logo: “FREE Starter Scenario Game Aid and Figure Accessories” The “Starter Scenario Game Aid” is just a folded piece of paper with a hex map on one side and some suggestions on the other. But the “Figure Accessories” are two actual, substantial molded pieces: a pair of rockets and what I think is a hover-scooter. You can see them in the middle row on the far right, between two figures, here: https://mobile.twitter.com/AchronalA/status/1078009215850029058 These two pieces are not pictured on the box art, nor are they listed in the set description. They definitely go with the set. The box was sealed when I received it. They are not mentioned nor shown on the Lost Minis Wiki page of the set: http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Champions_(Grenadier)#4002_Super_Villains_Box_Set Question: Should I document and upload pictures of these accessories to the wiki?

    Grenadier dragon lords platinum

    To continue the thought I moved on to another that has been haunting me from my shelf of shame; the platinum dragon from the Grenadier dragon lords series I have to apologize for the phone pics but I had to rush and my wife's business has sort of taken over the spot I keep my light box

    Grenadier Action Art: Wererat Leader

    This is the Wererat Leader from the Grenadier Action Art Monsters Box Set. The original sword was lost, so I used a friend’s spare parts bin to find a replacement. Enjoy!

    Grenadier dragon lords gold dragon

    Let's start the season by cleaning out my shelf of shame and accomplish something I've been meaning to do for the last decade or so.... One of my first big miniature accomplishments I completed as a teenager was the complete painting of the first dragon lords circle by Grenadier the year it came out (in case any of you were wondering how old in actually was) Well I found the set when I was going through my parents things and I wanted to try and do it better with my new skills and paints... it took about 3 years it accumulate a second set and then the project got delayed after I completed the black, green, red and white. Mettalics can be difficult... but no more. This year I will finish the council! So with some renewed interest I took my gold of the shelf and went after it over the holidays, doing the upper scales in Scale 75 metallics and the belly scales using the reaper NMM paint set.

    Grenadier 9602: Red Dragon II

    My thinking when painting this guy was that his scales would all be gemstones. When D&D dragons were conceived, I think it was a big mistake to have the good dragon be metals and the evil ones colors. The evil ones should have been named after gemstones: ruby, sapphire, emerald, onyx, and opal. So here is the ruby dragon, in his volcanic home. I hope you like it. Thanks a ton to everyone in the WIP forum for advice and encouragement!
  12. This is the “Evil/ Lawful Cleric” from the Grendier Action Art: Monsters set. I guess I missed an opportunity to do something really eye-popping on his shield. It seems a bit too tribal looking to me to go with the rest of his outfit. So I kept it as the suggested black and red.

    Grenadier M313 WIP

    I found this on a shelf buried at the back... M313 by Grenadier Minatures 1989. By request.

    Grenadier Action Art Drider

    Here is the Drider from the Monsters set. I stuck to the suggested color scheme as well as I could. I got a little lazy toward the end. You can see I forgot to do any shading on the bowstring. The original hand and small crossbow were lost, but my friend had a nice replacement that I managed to cluge in there, though the wrist is at a fairly extreme, but not totally unbelievable, angle. I hope you enjoy.
  15. Here is the Grenadier Action Art “Super Orc Fighter.” Aside from the name being kind of funny, I also find it a bit ambiguous. He has very fancy antique armor. In my imagination he found the armor somewhere and put it on, and now he is the envy of the tribe. However, he prefers to use the same old rusty axe, which he doesn’t seem to know how to swing properly, and probably doesn’t realize that he is a wearing a vorpal sword at his belt.

    Grenadier Action Art Bugbear

    Here is the bugbear from the Grenadier Action Art Monsters set. Apparently he is from the “Blue Cow” clan.
  17. Here is the female assassin from the Grenadier Action Art set “Monsters”. I don’t really think of female assassins as monsters, except in the metaphorical sense. I would have been a little disappointed if a box labeled “Monsters” had had a bunch of people. But anyway... Her face is a bit rough; the sculpting makes her look old, but her short dress seems to imply a young woman. But maybe it’s just a long shirt?
  18. This is the second of two old Grenadier figures from the set 1502: "Robo Hunters" sculpted by Mark Copplestone. The 1980s vibe is strong with this one, and if that is not supposed to be Grace Jones I will eat my hat. I gave her semi-Egyptian makeup and an ankh tattoo because of course (The Nefertiti references are pretty obvious), and tried to stick with a 1980s color palette to go with the 1980s natural waist and shoulder pads. WIP thread (unfinished) here. The other figure in the set, the man, can be found here. A girl from the set "1502 Teen Robo Hunters" can be found here.
  19. This is the first of two old Grenadier figures from the set 1502: "Robo Hunters" sculpted by Mark Copplestone. I'm not sure if they were ever official Shadowrun miniatures, but they are definitely a 1980s vision of the future. WIP thread (unfinished) here. The red is pretty intense, but tends to dry shiny no matter what I do. Here's a slightly different angle: The woman figure from the set can be seen here. A young woman from the set "1502 Teen Robo Hunters" can be seen here.
  20. This is an old Grenadier figure from the set 1509: "Teen Robo Hunters" sculpted by Mark Copplestone. I had a good time painting up her 1980s future look. WIP thread (unfinished) here. There are also Show Off threads for the Grenadier set of adult Robo Hunters, 1502, the female here and the male here.

    Grenadier Action Art: Drow Captain

    Here is the Drow Captain from the Grenadier Action Art: Monsters set. See my previous thread for the Thief Assassin to see the Painting Guide color recommendations.

    Grenadier Action Art: Thief Assassin

    Back in the early 80’s, Grenadier put out a few “learn to paint” type mini kits, much like the few Reaper has done. They were called Action Art and came with 11 or so minis each. This guy is from one such set. I’ve painted him as recommended in the “Action Art Painting Guide.” He is small, even for the early days of 25mm sculpts. So he’s shrimpy, yet buff. Enjoy.

    Grenadier Red Dragon II

    This was another ina large collection of oldies that my high school friends gave me. Trying to make the scales look like garnets or rubies. Please critique!

    Grenadier Frost Giants

    So my next old school project that will probably take quite a while.
  25. 72moonglum

    Grenadier Frost Giantess

    So an EDIT: I changed up the photos and added one more different view because I took them from a slightly lower angle So it looks like Frost Giants are all the rage these days on the forums, so I'll add one more, eventually two. I have been watching Patrick Keith's frost giant queen ever since she came out on the Bones Kickstarter and got her not too long ago, but didn't feel that I could actually start on her until I got some of my older frost giant pieces out of the way. The first two on the docket are John Dennett's classic Frost Giants from the Grenadier's Giant's Club, where each giant set came with the piece of a map and an obelisk. I'm not sure if after collecting all these you were able to send them in for something? Anyhoos, here is the female frost giant, one of my all time favorite figures. I'm working still on the male frost giant who is a little more labor intensive, but I'll get him finished one of these days hopefully soon. and some of the face's close ups because I think I took the farther away photos from a higher angle which didn't quite capture the face. One thing I've found out especially towards the end of this project is that super glue and tight spaces really don't match and I managed to get the snow around and in a few places where it shouldn't be, including over the left hand's fingernails, which I took painstaking time and effort to make nice, only to get them covered by snow. The snow I used came from some modeling snow I had bought years ago. Up until now I'd been using baking soda for my snow effect, but I worried a bit that over the time it might yellow (time will tell I guess) and it would not look so nice in a few years. In case anybody's interested, here’s the WIP I've been working with: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81156-grenadier-frost-giants/ where you can also see ongoing process on the male as well. Anyhows, I hope you all enjoy taking a gander as much as I enjoyed painting her!
