  1. Not sure how he got his name. Sounds like it would have been better for a post apopcalyptic mini. I had a really tough time with this one. That dragon on his cape broke up my flow lol. I really didn't know what to do with it and didn't even know it was there until it came in the mail. The base is sort of ordinary, but it will match the base of something bigger that I am working on. Nice wet cave setting.:)

    02005: Tox

  3. I sent DSMiles some stuff for the miniature exchange! He wanted metal, preferably, and stuff from lower SKUs. I hadn't spent a lot of time down there, so it was fun to look around. I picked out a wizard that looked fun, a knight with an unusually short cloak (more historically accurate, but less epic-looking, I believe?), and three wraiths--which I hadn't seen before, and thought were pretty awesome! I hadn't really done any basing before. Sorry about that! I hope you found the basing at least marginally acceptable. I was aiming for a bit of a dungeon-y look with some moss to match the old-school vibe of the minis. Speaking of those, I have some individual pics! 02005: Tox Tox was my favorite. He's also one of my best jobs so far! I had a lot of fun with him and the wife was sad to ship him off. I may have to paint up another. 02188: Knight Templar I had fun with this one too. I think he'd be great for freehand but I don't think my freehand is up to snuff for a mini exchange yet. Lots of canvas to make your mark on. 02617: Female Wraith The wraiths are just cool. I had a bunch of ideas for things to try--one of them involved suspending some bluish-white-ish pigments in clear acrylic in the hoods to give a lighting effect, but I couldn't get that to work too well. Oh man the Vallejo water effects were awful to work with. Interestingly enough, because they're water-based, they slowly dissolve the drop of paint and create a solution of water, water effects acrylic, and pigments. It's a cool process to watch but also a sad one as you watch the blob of paint you were hoping to keep get slowly disintegrated. And then you have to scrape all the water effects out. 02148: Guardian Wraith I wanted to give the wraiths some sort of effect to show from a distance that they're not just dudes (or ladies) hidden in cloaks. You see wraiths all the time with glowy implements, so I tried to recreate that. With at least some success, I think! It's hard to get the blending to look right on the dark cloak. On the lighter brown clothing, experiments showed that it would look green, which I was not expecting! But weirdly enough, I think those bits turned out looking better. At least to me. 02081: Fog Wraith

    02700 Tox

    Okay, finally got a mini I wouldn't be ashamed to bring to the gaming table. I still have a ways to go, but I think I'm definitely on the right track.
  5. I asked some friends what I should paint next, and wizard was the unanimous choice. I chose Tox, 02700, because I felt the robes would give me plenty of practice actually trying to get the colors to blend for shading. For once, I'm actually pretty happy with the eyes. Those I'm going to have to be very careful about not hitting. The orb in his hand I'm going to shade down to red. The one in the staff I'm less sure about as yet. The staff itself will be getting an intense brown drybrush (it's currently painted walnut brown, not very different from the black primer). I'm mostly satisfied with the basic look of the sleeves, though obviously I'm going to have to do a lot of clean-up there. Sorry the picture's not quite as good here, but you get the general idea. The dragon on the back is a slight metallic; I mixed a dab of copper in with some carnage red. I'll work some highlights in. I was thinking maybe a heavier copper mix for the highlights. Anyone tried anything like that before? Is this a good idea? The dragon on his shoulder is carnage red, and it's going to get some black mixed in. Any thoughts, recommendations?
