  1. Tried to paint the Griffon to look like Buckbeak (a hippogriff I could not locate) for a friend’s HP diorama.
  2. Here is a trio of Wizkids elves painted up for tabletop. It was very annoying to get to the bowman's face - so its not really painted in detail. I have mixed feeling about wizkids humanoids.... I feel a bit grumpy about how these didn't turn out, but its' my fault... I do like the yellow velveteen effect I got on the one cloak...
  3. My cousin came over to paint a Bones mini I had laying around to be his new (temporary?) character, as he was slain at the end of the last session. I decided to pull out the Nolzur’s Grick pack to paint something easy while half entertaining him. I just used two colors so far, Vallejo Green Brown for the belly and sucker “underside” of its face tentacles, and Reaper Troll Hide, both thinned 1:1 with Vallejo Thinner Medium, and a damp brush. Both colors went onto the smaller Grick like butter, and produced a wonderfully highlighted and shaded effect on their own. Sadly I got interrupted by life, and the paint was drying well out by the time I got back (I had put my palette in a ziplock bag, but still...) so I just used the VMC Green Brown that remained to touch up the smaller one, and start on the large one. I also mixed up a small bit of the Troll Hide again, to touch up a few remaining spots on the smaller aberration. But I’m beat, so enough painting for tonight. Going forward I plan to do the beak with Reaper Coal Black, which I’ve not had opportunity to make use of, yet. Plus I’ll put some Citadel Screamer Pink in for the mucosa of the mouth. Since the paint was acting so wonderfully as a wash, any spots I had to touch back up that resulted in darker splotches, I just mirrored on the opposite side, making that part of his skin pattern. I’m quite pleased with how it’s turning out, and it was ridiculously easy for a great tabletop standard. I need to do more monsters like this.
  4. Here is a set of five zombies I painted up - first 2 are wizkids and I found I did not really like the sculpt, a sort of Elvis pirate looking zombie. Second three are a mix of a wizkid and two reaper zombies. Quick paint ups for the table - being fortune to have an in-house group to play with!
  5. Hi all I had lost my motivation to paint in the past few months. With no paint nights with friends, my mini's not seeing the D&D table as we're playing online atm, it wasn't motivating. This weekend I picked it up again. Finished 2 mini's, of which I'll post 1 today :) this zombie Beholder was my first attempt at painting a blind eye. Loving the outcome! Added the toxic drool when I thought he was done, which turned out to be a lie. The drool finished him up proper :)
  6. In my continuing effort to continue at least 1 dragon a month, here is my next entry, the wizkids gargantuan dragon. I believe I should name this one PanicusMaximusNecakus because this one presented special and exciting problems because the dragon has apparently decided to do the flamenco feather dance and his wings were a major obstacle when trying to paint the left side of the dragon's body. I realize the cause was because they were trying to get the dragon in the box but man was that difficult to work with. I wound up spending a lot of time with one hand pinning the dragon and the wing to the table while I painted with the other. It was not the most convenient method of painting. He was also very prickly... very, very prickly! because its such a big base, I wanted to provide some interest for the game. I used the old road stamp from Basius to generate some pieces of broken road amongst a clearing in early fall. I was thinking of adding a smudge of snow but if I did it would conflict with the ruined stone. Overall though I like how he came out and I really like the results on his tail and his crown of horns. Hope everyone like him. This is still tabletop quality as I have been trying to produce quantity over quality.
  7. Ok lets talk about this mini. I got it two years ago in the Legend of Drizzt boxed game and just never use it. Why? Because it just looks weird for a dwarf and it is overall lacking if that makes sense. But I believe it has potential to look pretty cool and become one of my favourite minis. This isn't the first time that I dislike and convert a Wizkids "hero" mini but this conversion will be the most drastic so far. So lets begin. First of all, the thing that bugs me the most are Athrogates flails. I've found some artwork online and here's how they could look like: And, if you take a look at the first image above, they look like a pair of maracas: This obviously means that I have to do a weapon swap. I will also change his hand position to make the pose more intimidating. The second thing that i dislike is his spiked armor, it is supposed to look cool I guess but to me those spikes resemble crystals and it just looks super weird to me (kinda like the dark souls crystal armor) and doesn't go with the overall vibe of the mini That means I will also remove the spikes from his helmet, shoulder armor and boots and make them look different and hopefully better. I'm sorry for a long post, and I will keep you updated. Thanks for looking!
  8. So I had this mini for some time, it was damaged, missing an arm and a hand. I repaired it using some bits and repainted it. Here's the WIP topic. I like how everything turned out, thanks for looking! Some before and after photos:
  9. So a while ago I bought 10 of these prepainted wizkids merfolk minis off ebay for cheap. The paintjob on them is horrible but I like the sculpts quite a lot and my dnd group used them all the time during our underwater adventure campaign and was quite happy with th. One of them was missing an arm and I just put her in "to do" box and didn't use her in my games. After some time I chopped of her hand for another project and in the end I was left with an armless and handles mermaid. Since my bits box has grown quite substantially during the last year I decided to pick something out for her in the arms and hands department and also repaint her. I will post updates on the process here and in the end make a new topic in the show off section. I'm open to comments, criticism and sugestions and I hope you like this proces! Thank you for looking!
  10. Just painted a few figures. First up is an Alligator from Wizkids. His base is just under 5cm in diameter Then some sort of larva, which I like to think of as a kind of "baby mothra" - also from wizkids. It's coloring is based (roughly) off a real-life caterpillar. Lastly, a couple of Cave Worms (Giant Leeches, #44031, Reaper).
  11. I love this guy might have to get more dinosaurs
  12. my second dragon for the month. I didn't put a huge amount of work into this one. one of my goals was to see how well the contrast paints would work to bring out the basic shading and normal tone for the dragon hide rather than having to hand paint all the scaling. It didn't work too badly. I did wind up having to do some significant highlighting and I had to do some additional shading work on the underbelly but overall the effect was pretty good for the time spent. I probably should have done more with the wings but I just didn't have any inspiration for them. the sections were pretty small and very flat. I might go back and do something but for now just blue is where this young guy is. I did find the base to be pretty cool. Hope you like him
  13. For some reason this month i decided to concentrate on one eyed floating monsters. Next in line was the Wizkids beholder. Somewhat hard to find at one time. I got one and then lost the urge to paint it. Finally got around to it and discovered that mine apparently never got past mardi-gras and crowned himself in blues and yellows. fun paint job but it got a little weird having all those eyes staring at me while painting...
  14. Ten of the 23 minis I’ve painted since my post in March. Monsters = tabletop Humanoids = above tabletop Sinisthreax (14634) is an ultra-complicated sculpt. He’s a noctiny (5e kobold press) recurring villain in my dnd game. You’ll note one eye is normal along with that side of his face. Silas (03010) the human cleric I wanted to dingy up with blood spatter. I imagine his name is Bret and he does not appreciate being called a heal-bot. The Dragonborn (Wizkids), half-orc (red box games) and deep gnome (Bones) are all new players in my dnd game which has grown from 3 players to 7 in rapid order. Narbaz is a tiefling from Red Box Games and I like the OSL I got from below, but not from the staff. I really just got sick of it and called it done.
  15. It's been quite some time since I've done a show off but here goes. I painted this mini in about 6 hours. Still need to gloss and seal. C&C welcome.
  16. I've been painting up the Stygian Barge lately and decided that since I was already painting lots of wood colors, I'd go ahead and do some other figures that shared a similar scheme. First up is the raft from the Dreadmere expansion of the last kickstarter and a barrel of fish that I think may have been part of another mini painted last year. Next is the Dreadmere Fishing Boat. It's not very big, I doubt I'll get more than one based mini in it at a time. But it's a wonderful little sculpt. I'd be happy with a boat like this in real life. Finally this is the boat and treasure chest from the Wizkids Kraken set. Unlike the Reaper boat, it's big enough to hold several miniatures, but it's fairly plain. Cheers and thanks for looking.
  17. Yet Another Speed painted.
  18. Finished my beholder. It's a little over exposed after stacking the photos. I'm too lazy to take new pictures. He was fun to paint! i'm happy with how he came out, Need to keep pushing myself though. MVI_0102.MOV
  19. Critter from the deep. Thought I was going to do a purple, but in looking at on-line images, I thought orange was the way to go.
  20. My son's DM wanted a purple beholder with red eyes.
  21. I had an itch to paint some horses so this is one of the horses from the Wizkids Adventure Camp set. I have always loved horses and greys are my favorite!
  22. We're starting a new 5th Ed D&D campaign in a couple weeks. I decided I might play a rogue, so I wandered down to the LFGS at lunch and looked at what was there (because I obviously have NO miniatures already I could use). Spotted the Tabaxi Rogue female pack from WizKids (I like the sculpts and poses of the female figs more than the male ones) so that's going to be my next character. Cool fig, primer isn't too bad. Some nasty mold lines but I only have a week to paint this so I'm not messing with them. Maybe after I'll clean up the "advanced" version and do a better job on her. And after some time fiddling with colours. Well, that looks a mess. Just figuring out colours. Skin base is MSP Alien Flesh. Cloth is MSPB Succubus Kiss. Had AV Model Air Black handy so used that to start base coating metals. And leather is MSP Leather Brown. Still not sure on the leather but I'll give it some time to think about it and maybe try a wash on it.
