  1. Yup another project, as if I didn't have enough on my hands. This will take a while, but I will start again. A few decades ago ( before I roamed this Forum) I created a Barbarian Army with Animal allies. I sold it and all I have left are these tiny pics that show only part of it. Also, this was decades ago so I didn't paint as well as I do today ( or at least I think so) Here are the old pics as appetizers, I will soon start the new army. Enjoy!
  2. Here's Bertok, the barbarian. I followed the instructions of the old L2PK4 using only paints originally included in the set. (Plus gold and silver, because I suck at NMM)😇 Enjoy!
  3. Hello All, Here are photos of a 02924 "Bertok, Human Barbarian" I completed recently. Thank you for looking.
  4. Hello All, Here are photos of a 03931 Dark Heaven Legends "Alena Frostblade, Human Female Barbarian" I completed recently. Thank you for looking.
  5. Hi all: She was the bonus in my last order, and while she needed a lot of cleaning up, she turned out better than I expected. She’s a bit on the PG13 side, but hopefully these are suitable. Her hair was super fun! I stuck with a strawberry blonde look - it seemed appropriate given her name…
  6. This is Brunhilde, my barmaid barbarian. She fights with a beer mug, her improvised weapon, and is incredibly vain- her rage is triggered by petty insults about her looks. Bruni is my first character- when I started playing D&D in 2019, I had a Hero Forge mini to represent her, but as she’s adventured more and shifted out of “failed barmaid” mode and into “full fledged adventurer” mode, I figured she could use an upgrade. A few days ago, I started concepting and sculpting a new mini to represent her, and this is the result! Also, the base and spilled mug of ale are by Vae Victis
  7. Presenting Erik the Grim along with Vadis the Thorn Hound, 2 of the many Warhammer Underworlds minis I'm slowly trying to paint. Pretty pleased with both of them, but mostly I'm just happy to get something finished! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received!
  8. Design - Istharra the Plague Kobold Queen from Artisan Guild. I painted her as a Barbarian Banner Bearer for my Horde of the North WIP here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79398-horde-of-the-north-glitterwolf-paints-barbarians-and-mammoths/page/9/#comments Wanted her to be in a beserker state so I printed the NUDE version. Base Design: Txarli Factory. All printed on my Elegoo Mars. ****************************** Many an enemy soldier won't believe his eyes when he sees this naked beauty running at him in this freezing cold. Waving a banner with an unholy rune on it, wielding a dagger dripping with poison, how can she stand the cold? Many a soldier will die before he learns the answer. The Horde follows the banner, nothing will stop them. She's protected by ancient magic shielding her from the cold and from enemy arrows, every kill she makes is in honour of the Gods of the Tribe. Beware, for she may be beautiful, she's deadly!!! **************************** LINKED FOR NUDITY: https://i.postimg.cc/d3M3vqmp/20220803-145130.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/5NVyR2tF/20220803-145134.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/jSq5R3Px/20220803-145140.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/jqNCc7Rb/20220803-145145.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/Hs9nD1Jv/20220803-145154.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/8ch5zqZ5/20220803-145158.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/rpPznGd8/20220803-145206.jpg
  9. Hello All, Here is a Bones plastic 77736 "Ankoa, Barbarian Hero" I completed last January. Thank you for looking.
  10. This is a figure that was given to me at Reapercon last year. If you know who makes it please let me know so I can give proper credit. I hope you like it.
  11. I have to confess when I pulled this guy out of the core set I thought it was a goblin. In particular, it reminded me of a certain space goblin that backwards talks in riddles he does, mmmn. So he's green.
  12. Finally got back on to some painting. It was a minor win, but just basing this dude feels good to be done. One cool thing i thought was fun is that i put a footprint in the mud under his left foot. Kind of a small, but cool detail. Done.
  13. Got another one down for the weekend. This time paying special attention to the face and eyes. @Inarahmentioned to me to lighten things up a little. So, I took her advice. I think it turned out for the best! BATTLE REPORT! Wins: * Taking way more time around the face this time and really putting a lot of work into leveling up the color step by step with really thin paint worked well. VMC Burnt Red and VMC Flat Flesh was a good blend together. I think in the face, I could have added a bit more fare skin, but hey, he's a barbarian. He's not going for a "best skin" award, he's going for best raging out award. * The bone, leather, fur was a really fun combination to work on. I kept things pretty simple and the variation between all of them were pretty complementary. * Again using the zenithal highlight really helped features stand out and give me a good starting point. * Stages: Skin, then leather elements, then accessories, then weapons. The working method inside to out went great. * I really like the way the scabbard came out, but I kind of thing it was supposed to be straight up and down and not off to the side, but I hate when it's up and down because it'd be impossible to get the sword out of. However, the downside is the scabbard has NO detail behind it and it's jutting out, which Ididn't think about when I glued it in place. Wah wah. * Free hand on the handle. I added the little black/brown element on the sword handle. I am pretty happy with that. I think it's a nice slight add. Misses: * Loin cloth was a deep red I was trying to lighten up. I used a light grey, didn't work. Then I tried white - pink? Do you think a barbarian is going to wear pink? "I reckon' you get your broccoli kicked for wearing something like that." In thinking about it I could have pushed it to orange for the highlight. Doh! * Eyes - I did them better this time, to @Inarah's point, but I didn't have enough room to get much else in there. I was also at a points where I knew if I tried to fix it, it was only going to get worse, so I called it where it was. Meh. * Sword - just a basic steel. I tried to use a black wash on the bottom side of the blade to give it shading, but you really can't see it on the photo. It's nothing special, and again, I wish it was more...anything. It's pretty basic. I'm reallllly looking forward to putting a base on this one. Needs to be something epic, so this will be a special one. I'm very, very happy with how this turned out and feel it's a good spot to stop for the weekend. Yay! As always - open to feedback and would love your thoughts.
  14. My first figure 2021. I started painting about 2 years and took a year+ off from it. I decided to get back into and got some new paints and brushes for Xmas. Still working on my technique and would like to hear your opinion.
  15. Kyrie and Talnyth surveying some jungle ruins on a warm afternoon. All seems quiet, perhaps too quiet: What's that in the underbrush? Cuth Wolfson to the rescue!
  16. I wanted Conan. and this looked pretty much exactly like him. I painted him up a month or two ago, and since I already posted my wizard today I decided to post Dantrag (Conan) today as well. Again, any tips or advice on painting or photographing will be gratefully accepted.
  17. Hello again Reaper Message Boardonians! So here's another piece of old school goodness, a Ral Partha Charging Barbarian, sculpted by Julie Guthrie way back in the delightful eighties. This one was originally in one of the Partha Boxed sets, 98-015 Bezerkers, and now is sold individually at Iron Wind Metals. Pretty quick to paint as he was unencumbered by too much armor, clothing or general stuff. My biggest challenge with this fellow was to figure out his hair color. Blonde eventually won the day. Anyhoos, please enjoy!
  18. Fun bunch to paint, I like the leader model. Hope you like them! :)
  19. So my fellow players wanted to get Hero Forge custom characters, and as the only painter in the group I did them up. The bard was in metal, the other two in resin. My goodness are the surfaces rough and the detail shallow! I was a bit embarrassed to hand them over, but they really liked them - it was super important that the figure was exactly the design they wanted. It was an interesting bit of calibration for me and how to enjoy the imperfect. I think the barbarian came out the best and my favorite bit to paint was the violin.
  20. I just finished up this miniature - it is sculpted by Reaper veteran Matt Gubser and is based on concept art and ideas from myself and Byron Roberts (the creator of Caylen-Tor in his fiction and his lyrics for the mighty Bal-Sagoth).
  21. Painted this up. Finally attached her to the base. Not sure if I want to just paint black over the base or do something fancy with it.
  22. This meaty barbarian by Bobby Jackson is also available in metal sku 03869. I went with the typical barbarian scheme of leather and furs.
  23. So, I just had to show off this pic. I'm playing in a 5e Rappan Athuk campaign, and needed to make 3 characters. I chose to model mine after the characters from the old Lost Vikings video game. In order from left to right: Olaf the Stout, Life Domain Cleric. Baelog the Fierce, Totem Warrior Barbarian. Erik the Swift, Battlenaster Fighter (my main). Sorry, I just really loved this picture.
  24. I got this mini in the Mini Painting 101 class at ReaperCon. This was our first ReaperCon - my wife and I took the class together. I’d painted about a dozen minis (badly) for D&D before going to RC. I like this sculpt, and I wanted to work on improving my basic painting skills. I decided to keep working on her to see how far I can go. I’ve spent an embarrassingly large amount of time on her already. I do feel like I’m learning a lot though and getting better at controlling my brush and getting paint consistency right. I broke out one of the good brushes I had bought and not touched - a da Vinci Maestro. I still feel unworthy to use it but maybe it will help me get better. I’ve done a lot of work on the red armor already, but still need to do some more highlighting. I think I might have overdone the highlights on the green ropes in some places. I was planning to glaze them down and redo a bit smaller. Thanks for taking a look. I would greatly appreciate any feedback or tips on what I can improve on the parts I’ve worked on already. Here she is so far - she looks a lot better if you squint.
