    Leviathans!

    A French battleship and destroyer, and a British cruiser in "tropical" colors. I really hope this game comes out of its coma someday...
  2. This project was initiated by a little failed experiment with 2 parts epoxy resin (for water effect) that snowballed into a completely unrelated diorama. I put a kelpie in a clear tube and poured epoxy resin on it. There were too many bubbles in it. But this reminded me of the round aquariums so often pictured in mad scientists’ lab. The closest mini for scientists I had, were 2 chronoscope Bones. The furniture and decor is a mix of handmade (foam, clay, random recycling), Boardgame spare pieces (Dungeon Saga) and Bones. C&C welcome.

    Android Flower-seller

    Presenting an Android Flower-seller, part of the Servants of the Engine faction in the Twisted game universe. Had a lot of fun painting this one, although given a second chance I probably would've given her brighter flowers, and luckily you can't see the terrible bit of mold slip going on across her bonnet from this angle. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    Cal and Aponne

    Presenting Cal and Aponne, an Ogre and Halfling duo working for the Scylla crime family faction in the (possibly defunct) game of Wolsung. Had this one sitting in The Cupboard of Unfinished ThingsTM at 75% done for about 3 years or so, so thought I'd get him finished while waiting for other things to dry. It also highlights how little my painting has improved over the years As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    Blunderbuss WIP

    Starting a new mini, called Blunderbuss, she's one of my many, many (many) Twisted Urkins I have left to paint. Made some progress today:- Painted her gas-mask, it's mostly Red Leather shaded with Brown Wash, but it's also got Iraqi Sand stitches, Bronze bits, Oily Steel bits and a 1:1 Magic Blue/Ghost Grey eye lens.
  6. This is Stonehaven's Half-Orc Mechanist, a nice little character for the more open-minded steampunk campaign. The quote in the title of the thread is from Gail Carriger, author of the "Soulless" steampunk series. I actually finished him around Christmas, but I never put up the Show Off thread. So here he is. Questions, critiques and comments welcome. WIP thread here.
  7. This is Stonehaven's Half-Orc Nobleman, another nice and eccentric steampunk character. The quote in the title of the thread is from Beau Brummell. Comments, etc. welcome. WIP thread here. This is all paint:

    Monkey

    Presenting the irrepressible Monkey, his group have journeyed to the west to represent the Guild of Harmony's Far East branch in the game Twisted. Was rather intimidated by this guy at the start, the whole set are pretty big on tiny details, but he turned out to be rather straightforward to paint. I've got to stop painting things Andrea Blue until I've figured out how to layer it properly though. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

  10. The Stonehaven Half-Orc Kickstarter fulfilled recently. The figures were really inspiring, and I have a use for several of them already. I'm in a campaign in a steampunkish world with many different races. Anyhow, these are the four half-orcs I'm painting up for it: the Gentleman, the Librarian, the Artificer, and the Pistoleer (not sure if those are official names for them). I have glued them to their bases, primed them white, and washed over them with Burnt Umber. I've loosely shaded in their faces with a grey mixed from Burnt Sienna and Phthalo Green and white, but I haven't added any facial details yet. The gentleman would of course be wearing gloves, so I haven't painted his hands yet. The Pistoleer probably would too, but I felt like painting her hands anyway. The Artificer appears to have bare toes sticking out of his exo-suit, or whatever it is.
  11. Apparently I never started a WIP thread for this miniature. This is Reaper's 50304: Rowena Von Graaf, sculpted by Julie Guthrie, which I started painting a long time ago. She's a fun steampunk figure. All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios. Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated. This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers. I decided to paint her with a pretty black face. Here's a close-up of her face. There are tiny white points which are microscopic unpainted pits in the figure. They are much smaller irl than they show up in the photographs. I am slowly (maddeningly) working to fill them in as I go. I decided to paint her underskirt pink. This is Quinacridone Magenta lightened with Titanium White. And the base coat on her dress and spats is straight Red Oxide. And this is where I left her (cough) about a year and a half ago. More to come!
  12. This is Reaper's 59009: Mad Scientist, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. I thank Reaper for proffering Victorian Science Ladies in Big Dresses, and I am looking forward to painting her up. I am, as usual, working with Golden matte fluid acrylic paints. This is my standard priming, a thin wash of thinned-down Titanium White allowed to dry for a day then washed further with thinned-down Burnt Umber. I don't know if I've mentioned, but this is a classic Italian Renaissance priming technique. I can't remember the term, but it translates as "veil" of color and is supposed to give richness to subsequent layers of color. In this case it also makes details pop. I clearly missed a few spots with the Burnt Umber. I will be repairing those as I go along. I started with her skin. I like the Foglios' "Girl Genius" comic, so she is a little inspired by them. They have plenty of diversity in their cast, and I thought this figure might look well with darker skin. I have found that Burnt Umber, a slightly cool, rich dark brown, makes a good basis for dark human skin. This is the first layer, a light scumble (like a glaze but using a lighter color over a darker instead of vice versa) of Burnt Umber lightened just a touch with Titanium White. Dark skin, I find, looks well with warm highlights based on Yellow Ochre. I painted her skin quite dark, so I made the highlights a little cooler, less Yellow Ochre and more Titanium White, admixed with Burnt Umber. Here she is with her skin finished and her eyes painted in. I washed some clear Quinacridone Magenta over her lips. Her eyes were pretty enormous to begin with and I made them even larger. I am thinking mauve for her dress. Purple ftw!

    Urkin Shaman

    Presenting the Urkin Shaman, part of the Dickensian faction in the game Twisted. Being smarter than the average Urkin, he works as Nancys right hand man, relaying her orders to the others through the ancient art of hand-puppetry. He also has an ability to "Hulk out", hence the little and large versions. Had a few issues painting this pair, there's a few areas where I never really worked out what it was meant to be, and I don't really like how the scale is a bit off on the bigger Shaman, but overall I think they look okay. As always, and comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    A little and large shaman

    New to the table, I have the Shaman Urkin, both versions (in game he has the ability to 'Hulk Out'). Made a start to their skin with a basecoat of 1:1 Dwarf Skin/Dead Skin with Flesh Wash. Kind of intimidated by the task of carefully highlighting all the skin poking through the tattered clothing of big shaman, so calling it a day.

    WyrmGear 77177 Steampunk Dragon

    whoo this one took me 10 hours, likely because I am still new at this. Now, I know I could of just painted it as this pretty copper dragon and been happy with that. But this miniature is intended for a random encounter in a D&D campaign where the party encounters the dragon broken up into several dozen pieces then is encouraged to take it home with them and start trying to repair it. Thus the less than perfect paint job, the dirt so on so forth as the pieces are supposed to be dirty. I thought the wings turned out interesting with the black wash.

    Avatar of Strength Kitbash

    I am running a D&D game with my friends using the new Ravnica setting. The world has a very unique look, and one of the player characters in our group is an steampunk/elephant-man/mad-scientist. I couldn't find any miniatures remotely resembling that, so I made my own out of a reaper Avatar of Strength and some warmachines loose pieces I got on ebay for cheap. I have never done any kitbashing or sculpting before (just made it up as I went along) but I feel it turned out pretty cool (even though I am pretty lousy painter). Couldn't wait to show it off a little here, even though the lighting is really bad in here at night for pictures. Painted with all the cheap Reaper HD I picked-up during the sale. Question, comments, feed-back appreciated.

    59009: Mad Scientist (Female)

    My first mini of 2019, she is part of a group I am painting for a steampunk/time travel game my group is playing. For inspiration I used this fashion plate, the figure on the right:

    The Hookah

    Presenting The Hookah, once one of many labourers working Howard Carters archaeological dig, he gave up his name when he joined the Cult of Set. He is also part of the Egyptian faction for the game Twisted. Another mini where I wish I could've done a better job on his face, but this one had the double difficulties of not only being rather small and finely detailed but also obscured by his cultist hat. I think the rest of the mini makes up for that though, so I'm pretty pleased with him. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  19. Spotted this at Adepticon and found the idea of a steampunk mermaid too fun to pass up. She is exquisitely sculpted with elegant little hands and careful details. I think I would like to paint her a little like a tropical fish, bright yellow with orange stripes. This is my basic figure priming: Removal of mold lines (not too many of those), epoxied to the base, primed thinly with Titanium White and washed with Burnt Umber. I then started building up thin layers of Yellow Ochre (aka Mars Yellow aka Yellow Iron Oxide), a nearly-opaque earth yellow, normally a little dull in color but brighter in thin layers, lightened in places with Titanium White, and a few Titanium White highlights. I used Raw Sienna, a very slightly browner yellow, on the base.

    Brokk Grungsson

    Presenting Brokk Grungsson, an important character in the Kharadron Overlords (steampunk, sky pirate dwarfs) faction in the game Warhammer: Age of Sigmar. Had this one in the Cupboard of Unfinished Thingstm for a while, and I'm glad it's finally done. Bit disappointed with the base though. I wanted to give him a reason for wearing his blimp-suit, so I have him flying over a large pool lava, but I don't think it really works, it needs more texture or some rocks to break up all the yellow or something. As always any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  22. 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.

    Gentlefolk Highwaywoman

    Presenting the Gentlefolk Highwaywoman from the Servants of the Engine faction in the game Twisted. Originally a robotic housemaid, she gained self-awareness and now robs from the rich to keep herself fuelled. A lot of fun to paint but I think I was a bit messy in places. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

    Stand and Deliver!

    Got a new steampunk mini on the table:- The Gentlefolk Highwaywoman (from the Twisted mini range), a robotic housemaid turned gun-wielding bandit. So far I've painted up her face, hands and bit of thigh (Oily Steel > Black Wash > Oily Steel > Aluminium > Black Wash), the gun barrels were done at the same time but didn't get further than the 2nd layer of Oily Steel. Next, her torso was based in Brassy Brass, and her hair and gun were based in Bronze, it was all given a Brown Wash. I think there's more of her mechanical parts on show then I originally thought, so I'll give her a good look over tomorrow.
  25. Hi all, so I painted this one for a friend who is going to be retiring next week, sculpted by the incredible Dave Summers. As always, so hard to decide upon colors, especially when you don't have a theme in mind, just to paint for a friend. The incredible painting done on the Dark Sword page (painted by Marike Reimer) I didn't want to copy, even though I kind of accidentally gave this lady a similar fur color. I tried to also stay away from the studio model version's brass/gold metal, and did metal, which for me is so hard to make look decent, so hopefully at least partially succeeded. There's also a few odd mold lines that I ended up painting into something. The button on her hat I think was some kind of odd casting, and that long pin as well, but I didn't scrape them exactly as well as I should have so had to make them into something. and I hope the red came out okay, I'm not sure if it went exactly as deep as I wanted it to go, or quite frankly as highlighted. Oh well, she's sealed and finished too late to worry about that now. Upon hindsight I should have made her goggle lenses another color, maybe green, instead of blue as they don't seem to differentiate themselves as much as they should from the metal. Oh well, maybe on the next guinea pig.... . and as a side note, her rifle kind of reminds me of a super soaker! So anyhoos, enjoy!
