    77311-Large Water Elemental

    I painted this large water elemental several months back to fill a gap in my water elemental supply. It started out translucent blue, but I painted it opaque. I haven't tried inking the transulcents like others have, I lack the inks, and feel I get good control with opaques. I wanted a simple beach sand looking base, to suggest he has washed up on the beach to harass sunbathers. C&C Welcome.

    77427-Dungeon Vermin - Centipede (2)

    Here are another pair of Giant Centipedes. I have 6 total of these, and these are the 4th and 5th to receive paint. Simple, bright green with some red eyes and antennae for contrast. C&C welcome.

    77310-Water Weird

    I painted this up quickly several months back, to swell the ranks of water elementals. It was translucent blue, but I painted it opaque. I feel I have more control that way, and don't have the spiffy inks everyone says work so well on the translucent BONES minis. C&C Welcome.

    77428-Dungeon Vermin Tick

    Last new post for the day. Here is another BONES Tick. I have 2 more and a queen. This is the 4th painted one, and I painted it while I painted the centipedes. I wanted some bright colors and bright markings. C&C Welcome.
  5. Here is the next project for “Try to paint all the things!” I plan to paint her as a very light skinned elf. I might try an Autumnal color scheme.
  6. I didn't see this listed so: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/archonstudio/dungeonsandlasers-plastic-tabletop-rpg-scenery I received an engineering sample of the product today. They're made of hard gray injection-molded plastic, my guess would be ABS from its hardness and density. The floor and wall ties fit together tightly, though it takes a bit of effort that likely would wear at paint on those surfaces had they been painted. Due to response from earlier sample recipients, the production tiles will be slightly larger than the samples.

    quick Owlbear (Wizkids)

    Just a quick owlbear I did using the new citadel contrast paints. Considering it only took about 30 minutes, I thought it came out pretty well.

    Pathfinder Gargantuan Green Dragon

    Another Mini completed between the strokes of life. (can anyone get the reference, Wish i had the ability) I picked this up a few months ago with the white and red varieties but I wanted to have a dragon i could finish and not worry about whether it came out really well or not. This one came out surprisingly well considering the amount of time I had to work on this. I had fun and it really came out looking well. Still trying to get the magic water right on my dioramas. this one doesn't look bad but it leaked out on me and made a bit of a mess. Live and learn! Hope everyone enjoys this!
  9. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dreamforge-games/dreamforge-games-grav-stug-tank-model-with-stl-fil This is a relaunch of the project that failed to fund a few days ago, they're trying reducing the cost and relying on people picking up more kits overall to make the numbers work (1600 rather than 1200 kits). I hope it works (3D print to show size)

    Guild Ball Farmers

    Here are some farmers that I got to paint up for Guild Ball. I haven’t played the game myself, but the minis had a lot of expression. This is one of the earlier sets from Steamforged’s move to plastic.
  11. I am playing in the Pathfinder "Ruins of Azlant" Adventure Path campaign. A few of the PCs have some healing magic, but we didn't have an actual cleric until a PC recently took the Leadership feat, and an NPC cleric joined the party as his cohort. (Click here for the Show-Off thread about the figure that I use for my character.) The new cohort-cleric, Father Kurvis, is middle-aged and acts like a curmudgeon but has a kind heart. He worships Abadar, the god of cities, law, merchants, and wealth. Abadar's colors are gold and black, and his holy symbol is a golden key. Our GM has an extensive collection of prepainted plastic figures (D&D and Pathfinder), and this Village Priest seemed appropriate. It is from a 2005 D&D miniatures release. I offered to repaint it to be specifically Kurvis. Two hours of slinging paint got me to "finished" ... and after I took the first set of photos, I saw how bugged and asymmetrical his eyes were, so I just spent a few more minutes touching them up. Before and after: Enjoy, Derek
  12. I've never been much of a fan of GW. I mean the first fig I ever painted was GW, but that's because my friend (who was also the store owner) gave it to me for free (Come on, try it, the first one's free....). And I played some Bloodbowl back in the day (should really finish my Chaos Dwarf team one of these days...only been a decade or two). But I never really got into anything GW was making. Style wasn't what I was looking for, or the price point, or whatever. So then last week I was in Montreal for the GP (great time, too bad the race itself was soooooo boring). Was visiting a friend who lives up there and we wandered into the rather impressive GW store in the Eaton Centre. Took a look around and caught sight of this: Apparently a new edition of Age of Sigmar is coming out this week, and these guys are a faction. Or whatever the different groups are called. I thought, "Those are pretty cool! Flying stuff. Steampunky. I like." Then we left. And I went and marshaled for 3 days (the support races were better, btw). Then we met back up on Monday. And I was still thinking about the cool steampunky flying ships. So we went back and I picked up the starter. (they have 2 bigger flying ships too, but ouch, not cheap). So, this is what they look like when you open the box: Oye! Lots of bits. Looks like everything has options (they have a very detailed assembly guide, quite impressive). Options that presumably follow rules. Rules I'm not sure I'll ever read, let alone play. But I may check with the local store; I think they had some folks playing something GW. So that's all I've done with them so far, but figured I'd post and get the WIP started. These may take a bit to get going.

    Assorted 1/72 scale fantasy

    A few 1/72 scale fantasy things to while away a rainy day. A few of the knights were from a recent business trip, but I finished three more to round out a commander stand yesterday.
  14. Hordes of the Auld World - Orcs and Goblins, via @Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1103158358/hordes-of-the-auld-world-orcs-and-goblins Dont know how to share more information while on the phone.
  15. I’m on the road; post-Gencon, my muse is informing me that I need more troops for the Portable Fantasy Campaign. I try not to ignore her lest all inspiration leave me, so here we are so far. Most of these figures are from Accurate, with a couple of other makers mixed in. I brought a bunch and don’t expect to run out; we’ll see how far I get.

    DDM Prizes for GenCon 2018

    So I'm going to be repainting some D&D Minis for the DDM Guild's Prize support at GenCon 2018. Just really got started last night, but progress is progress. Sorry about the crappy phone picture. So, I'm gonna be keeping track of my progress here. My deadline is the first full weekend of July, the 8th or so. As I'll need to mail them to someone who is actually attending:( GF
  17. I was idling yesterday and decided to paint up a few 1/72 scale plastic figures to add to the portable gaming set up I'll be taking to Gencon. These figures are a mix of old Airfix and other more modern manufacturers; I don't think any two are from the same maker or set. I'm not entirely happy with the painting; my hands are steady enough and my magnification is good enough for the size of the figure, but I'm working toward trying to predict/plan/produce the right paint consistency to apply it with a Winsor Newton 000 brush without being so gloppy that it dries on the way to the miniature, nor yet so runny that it spreads as soon as it touches the miniature. At least they all meet the three foot viewing distance guideline for tabletop gaming.

    1/72 Elves and friend

    I’ve been chipping away at the 1/72 scale fantasy project this morning, with three Caesar elves and a Maid Marion from the old (sculpted in 1964) Airfix Robin Hood set. Assuming I get them based by Sunday, this would bring me up to 33 figures for the month. It hasn’t been too bad, considering all the Christmas hurly-burly.

  20. There's an old engineering saying: "Fast, cheap, or good, pick any two. " In this case I needed a bunch of 1920's investigators in normal street clothes, I wanted them ready in two weeks and I didn't want to pay $5-$7 each for them. So I got on Ebay and bought plastic clicky game figures for a dollar a head (shipping included) and did a little putty and paint work on them. Finished everything Saturday morning, and then the game got pushed back to next week. Which only means that I have time to paint more monsters. Here are the ladies: The one in the blue dress is from Reaper. They all could use more detail, but I was in a hurry. Gentlemen: The one on the end is from Heresy, I think. They could all use hats but I'm not that good. I made most of the bases out of putty, using texture stamps. Before photos and WIP:

    Inarah converts clix

    I needed a bunch of female figures for an RPG set in the 1920s, and I needed them fast and cheap. Sunday I ordered some Heroclix for a buck each, and by Wed evening they were in my hands. I need to modify the figures to have longer dresses appropriate for the period when the game is set. First thing I did was cut them off at the feet. I found a hobby knife worked well. A sharp hobby knife would work better. I used two part epoxy putty to make skirts. I just smooshed it on and smoothed it out. I should have started with a blob between the legs and let it dry overnight for stability. Next: primer, paint and bases.
  22. Rather than continuing the Kingdom Death: Monster assembly discussion in the acquisitions thread I've created a thread specifically for that purpose. Post your tips, tricks, and little things you've noticed here and make the lives of your fellow hobbyist a little easier. To start I'm assembling the minis on the "prologue" sprue, which are conveniently numbered. While this should keep people from mixing parts together, it's still nice to see pictures! First up is the lion. So for things I've noticed: The face doesn't want to fit very well. I had to do some trimming to get it in place, and it looks like I could have still cut away a little more. Attach the lower jaw before placing the rest of the lion's head. If you attach the main part of the head first I don't think it's the end of the world but you'll likely have to cut the tab off of the jaw to slide it into place. The hindquarters didn't fit together quite as nicely as it looked like they would when I dry-fitted it. You can see the gaps this created below, but they should be easily filled. I'm sure most of you have been at this longer than me, but for the new arrivals an easy way to get the mini to sit flat is to put all three feet in place with a drop of liquid cement and quickly align them as best you can. Then flip the mini over and press down gently. Polystyrene does not melt together instantly so you have a window to make adjustments before it sets. It will probably create a small gap at one of the ankles but it will ensure that your mini doesn't have a paw that is at an angle. Obviously to do it this way you need to glue the legs to the body before you glue on the feet. If you go feet first he'll just stand as he stands. Next up is survivor "C" This time I remembered to take a pre-assembly pic. She is pretty straightforward but since I'm at it... Her left leg has a nice groove to ensure the hanging fabric goes in place properly. Doing this first makes it really easy to glue her right leg in place. Her weapon arm is actually covering two sprue attachment points, and should not be glued in place until her torso is attached to her legs.
  23. As I stated, I am working on a lot of projects involving the various Joten Horde I command and so I managed to acquire this one on Black Friday at my FLGS, Millennium, in Rochester, NY. Wizkids :: Troll :: Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures™ This appears to be a direct response to Reaper's Bones line. It comes pre-primed with Vallejo Grey Primer and that wafer thin base AND the integral base. As you can see this is a classic Dungeons & Dragons portrayal of a troll. I've always enjoyed this kind and have a couple of classic trolls from TSR in the same vein. As I mentioned, I above, he came with a really thin base to put him on and the integral base. Wasn't a fan of either so I cut the integral base right off and glue him to a piece of shale to add some weight to the miniature. I also glued that to a architectural tile sample. Then added some bark. One piece to represent a log coming from below the rock he's standing on and the rest to increase the uneven terrain feeling. I added the course and fine sand to give the whole thing some texture. Afterward, I sealed the whole base with a quick coating of Testors Dullcote and then primed it by hand with some Reaper Grey Primer. Some points about the model... It says high-definition and it certainly seems to be of very good detail. You can see a nice definition with the knuckles and veins on his hands and wrist. That said, what annoys me is the mold line through his left cheek and his hair. The rest of them are in the usual spots, along his chest sides and either side of his limbs. The price point for the Bones Trolls compared to this troll at the store ($5) are roughly the same. I look forward to adding him to the crew and I think I might continue my Abomination style skin on him that I used for the Mountain Troll, The Skull Collector. Enjoy and Stay Tuned!

    Lords of Changes

    One of the minis that first got me into gaming was the old Lord of Change. This was a good while back- in those days, a Lord of Change was mounted on a square 40mm base, and wasn’t much larger than the ogres of the day and they fit into a blister pack. The new Lord of Change may very well be the best mini Games Workshop has in its lineup. A very fine piece indeed, and I’m happy that I’ve gotten to paint it a few times now. Here are two of them (for the same force).
  25. Hey all, I looked for a thread about this but didn't see one. Anyway, what do people prefer to paint, metal or plastic minis? I just started painting and have only done plastic. I've seen pictures of some metal ones and they seem to have crisper details. I see they offer both options for a lot of minis on the reaper store, wanted to see what people think? Thanks!
