  1. Hello everyone, here are pictures of my latest. Wizards of the Coast, Chainmail Ahmut's faction 88347, Half-Orc Fighter sculpted by Jim Warner. I painted it with Reaper MSP paint.
  2. Hello everyone, here are pictures of Wizards of the Coast 88358, Skeletal Orc. This Chainmail model was sculpted by Will Hannah in 2001 for the Ahmut faction.
  3. Hello inspiration Tuesday, Here are pictures of a Wizards of the Coast 88712, Zombie Troglodyte I completed Yesterday. This Chainmail model was sculpted by Will Hannah and was painted with Reaper MSP paint.
  4. Hi everyone. Got a couple of Cool Cats to show off today. I went back and forth for a long time on whether or not a wanted a group of matching lions, or if I wanted variety. As a DM, I feel these would be used most often as Druidic wildshapes, familiars, or summons. I also couldn't deny that i wanted to try some different techniques on each, so I decided to go with a Lion, a Tiger, and a Black Panther. Tiger (Reaper Bones Lion 77341) First up was the Tiger. She was actually the Lioness from the Reaper Bones Lions set (77341). Her sculpt looked like it could read as a tiger, and that was my major inspiration for wanting to paint each of them differently. I used a lot of references images on her and the subsequent cats as well. Really wanted to get the coloration right. I'm happy I did, because my instinct was to use more orange tones, but in actuality, tigers have more of a warm brown color. I used red-hair colors to bring out the highlights. The stripes weren't as difficult as I was expecting. I just used my reference photos as a guide and did my best. I do worry that people will misinterpret the nose stripes as poorly-drawn whiskers though. She also looks a little dopy head-on but I promise that that's the sculpt. Click the Spoiler for more Photos Lion (Reaper Bones Lions 77341) Next up is the other half of the Lion set. This guy was always destined to be a lion. Once again, I'm really glad I used reference images. Its funny how many animals we envision incorrectly. I learned this lesson well after painting up the Bones 4 pig way too pink, even though I knew it shouldn't be that color. I'm really pleased with my coloration on the mane. The only dry brushing on this guy is the rock base. Time consuming but worth the result. I think the muscle highlights look pretty natural. Click the Spoiler for more Photos Black Panther (Legend of Drizzt Board Game - Guenhwyvar) And finally we have the Black Panther. Fun Fact: Did you know that there is no such animal as a Black Panther? It is just a nickname for melanistic variants of any Panthera species, specifically Leopards and Jaguars. This model is from The Legend of Drizzt Board Game by Wizards of the Coast. I have not read a single Drizzt Do'Urden book, but I believe the black panther, Guenhwyvar, is the ranger's companion animal. Anyways, that was influence enough to paint her up in that style. I believe I used mostly Black Jaguars as inspiration, though the markings became less important than getting the highlight colors right. I ended up using Reaper's Dark Elf Skin colors to highlight the black, which is amusing considering Drizzt's race. I added some mottled spotting afterwards, trying to imply the pattern more than paint each individual spot. I think I managed to imply muscle, fur, and spots without losing the dark shade of black I wanted. Pretty happy, especially since this sculpt was my least favorite of the bunch. Click the Spoiler for more Photos QUESTION TIME Which of the three is your favorite? What animals do you use most often in your games? Do you have a favorite animal you like to see painted in miniatures?
  5. Disciplined like a hobgoblin, I'm staying home painting some stuff. Here's a Chainmail Miniatures model 88349, hobgoblin fighter I completed last night. This model was sculpted by Mike McVey and produced by Wizards of the Coast in 2001 for the Drazen's Horde faction. I used Reaper’s MSP acrylics to paint it. Stay safe and disciplined.
  6. Hellborn Troll from WizKids' Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures I stopped at AC Moore today and picked up one of the FolkArt Pickling Washes I didn't have while my wife was shopping for school play costume materials. Nearby I found FolkArt Ultra Dyes and picked up two colors to check out; Purple Rain and Pucker Up (a yellow). I have enjoyed using the Glass Enamels with the long cure time before and thought these might work similarly. I decided to wash my troll with the Purple Rain to see how it comes out and goes on. It's fairly thick out of the bottle but I might not have shaken it enough. It was taking forever to dry so I hit it with some Testors Dullcote to speed the process and reduce the shine. It's glossy like inks. Next, I used Reaper Blood Red to give him the Hellborn look I wanted. Then I pulled out Reaper Violet Shadow to get his hair, teeth and claws darkened. I then went back over the boney bits with the FolkArt Ultra Dye. It'll put the glossy touch to the claws and teeth. I am quite happy with him so far. Stay tuned and Enjoy!
  7. WizKids Dungeons & Dragons HELLBORN TROLL I present to you the almost nuclear looking troll that utilizes FolkArt's Ultra Dye "Purple Rain" as its inspiration and base shadow and wash. Also included in the skin triad are Reaper Blood Red and Reaper Brilliant Red for the highlights. I'll add the remaining paint list later when they are in front of me. For now, pictures: Some close up shots: Enjoy!
  8. So this is the first time I tried painting freehand on the shield This is the end result of the conversion: And for the conversion part, I didn't like neither this minis pose, nor its weapon choice (pickaxe really???), nor its commie looking (???) sigil on the shield. So I removed the weapon and sanded the shield. I also think that his pose looks a lot more natural as a spear throw than a pickaxe swing.. Also gave him some simple terrain and a quick paint Thanks for looking!
  9. Hi everyone, here are some picture of my Orc Squad. All models produced by Reaper Miniatures except for WOC40048 produced by Wizards of the Coast. From left to right on the first picture; 14270 Dantral sculpted by Gene Van Horne, WOC40048 Orc Warrior sculpted by Mike McVey, 14292 Musician and Standard Bearer sculpted by Ben Siens and 14198 Gangorak sculpted by Ben Siens. I painted them with Reaper’s MSP acrylic paint and Citadel inks.
  10. I've got this mini in the legend of drizzt board game last december and I just hated it right off the bat. The weird pose, lack of details, undefined face, I could go on... Also, something that was quite striking about it was the lack of feminine detalis and a kind of a masculine look of the female ranger It looked to me more like a man dressed as a female ranger, and I found that quite funny and promising! As I've thought more about it, it reminded me of Doris from "Sherk" and Okama characters from "One Piece", which I both love! So those characters inspired me to paint Catti in a similar fashion, which I believe gave the mini much needed character. I like how it turned out and I think she will make an interesting pc or npc in our dnd campaign! Enjoy!
  11. This is one of the heroes from legend of drizzt board game. I gave him simple terrain and a super quick speedpaint. I like how he turned out. Thanks for looking
  12. Hi everyone, not a Reaper model this time. Here is a Wizards of the Coast WOC40048, Orc Warrior sculpted by Mike McVey. I painted it with Reaper's MSP acrylic paint and inks. This official Dungeons & Dragons model is out of production.
  13. Hi everyone, I was recently sorting through old pictures and came upon some interesting ones. I think I never posted this one. It's a Wizards of the coast Chainmail CM88705, Gnoll Trooper. I probably painted this it in 2006. I thought some of you might like to see it. Anyone knows who sculpted this model?
  14. Good day everyone, here's a Wizards of the Coast woc40047, Grick. This pewter model was sculpted by Neil McKenzie in 2000 and is now out of production. It's mounted on a 25mm round base.
  15. A tall hunchbacked moss green creature dash towards you, its long arms stretched out, its sharpened claw hands whipping the air as it tries to get a grip at you. This frightening vision chills your blood. In a few steps, he's on you and you see in its dull, sunken black eyes, that its ugliness has no pair but its ravenous appetite... For all those of you who likes Old school model. Wizards of the Coast D&D 40052, Troll sculpted by Chaz Elliott.
  16. I got the Arena of the Planeswalkers boardgame over a year ago and hated the factory paint jobs, especially for Nissa. For those unfamiliar, she is an elvish nature mage with facial and not, as the stock model might suggest, a twisted demon monkey. Finished pictures first! I gave her staff a blue glow to match her latest character development in Amonkhet. The model's detail wasn't great, especially around the face, but I'm decently happy with it. Now brace yourself. Here's the "before" image. Plastic surgery was required.
  17. This is another old mini that has been sitting on the shelf of shame for some time. Wizards of the Coast 40022 Fire Giant Picture from Minibase I removed the integral base. I liked his pose but not where he was looking. So I wanted to have him stalking someone while walking up a set of steps. This brings his sword parallel with the ground and has him looking forward instead of at his feet. He was primed black and his armor a Phthalo Blue when he was shelved. I cleaned off the dust in prep to resume work on him. Enjoy.
  18. Angry female ogre..nuff said. This miniature was entirely painted, as all my figures are with a Round #1 brush from Reaper and Reaper MSP. I've dedicated myself to steadily improving my glazing practices throughout the year and this is making me feel like I'm getting somewhere. As with all my painting, none of the shading or highlighting you see is a result of photography. The paints I used: Ultramarine shadow, blue liner, tanned leather, auburn shadow, burgundy wine (a new favorite), misty grey, dark elf skin, woodstain brown, earth brown, blackened brown, brains pink, driftwood brown, fresh blood, vampiric shadow, splintered bone, dirty bone, ruddy leather. Since I'm terrible at WIP threads I thought I would include a synopsis of the painting of the skin: The ogre got a base-coat of ultramarine shadow Wash of blue liner, emphasis on the "darker" areas 2 glazes of a color combo of (2 brains pink: 3 driftwood brown) Blue liner wash 1 glaze of burgundy wine 1 highlighting glaze of (1 brains pink: 1 driftwood brown...6 drops of water added to that mix) 1 highlighting glaze of the above with burgundy wine added to blend 1 glaze of the above with fresh blood and brains pink added 1 glaze of the above with vampiric shadow added 1 glaze of (1 brains pink: 1 splintered bone) 2 glazes of 1:1:1 of brains pink, burgundy wine, driftwood brown I hope you like what I've done but I'm always open to C&C and any thoughts on improvement.
  19. Another mini from the long-held stash (don't know the sculptor, unfortunately): Wrong color green for a troglodyte, I suppose. Anyway, I finally got some washes (from Reaper), so I tried washing this guy wth the brown. I can't tell if it worked or not. I did a little bit of lining after it. And highlighting. I'm not sure what the wash accomplished. Meh. I'm pleased with how it came out, all in all, though I'm sure there are lessons to be learned, here. Please, tell me what they are.
  20. Looking for suggestions, both here with Reaper and abroad for Gamma World stand-ins. I received the core rules and the two expansions all within the last year and while tokens for the various PCs and monsters are fine, real miniatures would be much more enjoyable. Any suggestions are welcome.
  21. This is an Abyssal Ravager from Wizards of the Coast. As in D&D description I've chosen the green color to give it a venomous aspect.
  22. This is a War Ape from Wizards of the Coast.
