  1. Just a simple pair of horrible spacebeasts frolicking in their native hellworld! I'll have to gloss up the molten bits of the base at some point. Any tips on lava bases I should be aware of? In retrospect, I think the glowing mouths were inspired by the "gorilla-wolf motherbroccolers" from Attack the Block. I do not know if the designers intended this, but the pair of them are in a perfect pose for Magma Wrasslin.'

    Nolzur's Shambling Mound

    It seems that scale creep is a very real thing! This is Nolzur's delightfully brutish and verdant Shambling Mound. For a Large creature it is very large indeed, easily the size of a tabletop-scale elephant or bigger, and extending way off a 2x2 base with its outstretched limb. I put some straight-pin mushrooms on it, as I do. Here's a group shot with Reaper's beautiful Swamp Shambler and a WotC grab-bag Dryad and Needle Blight, for scale comparison.
  3. Been working on this guy for a while; finished him (for a given value of "finished") a couple weeks ago but didn't take pics until recently. The sculpted beard wasn't doing it for me, so I added some reindeer moss. Glued on some tiny leaves that look like miniaturized burr oak leaves. His huckable boulder I'm using for other terrain. This is a big fella! C&C welcome as always.

    WizKids T-Rex aka "King of Feathers"

    I've been running the D&D campaign "Tomb of Annihilation". It contains a truly monstrous beast called the "King of Feathers". So of course I had to make one. The T-rex from Wizkids is a really nice figure. I'm not normally a fan of that line, but the T-rex is awesome, This one is heavily modified. I will post some step by step photos in the WIP. An older t-rex, painted a few months ago.
  5. Here are a couple of WIP photos from my T-rex conversion to the "King of Feathers". I was working from this painting, from the "Tombs of Annihilation" campaign book. I trimmed away a lot of the ornamentation on his back and put on a base of green stuff. Once that dried, giving me a smooth surface to work from, I started adding small strips of green stuff to jam the 'feathers' into. The feathers are made from Dollar Store plants. I used wire cutters to clip the ends off of about 500 individual plastic leaves. Then I washed the leaves, so they would have a better chance of sticking to the green stuff and the glue. They still fall out sometimes, even though they are glued into the greenstuff with superglue. I would add a chunk of greenstuff and smooth it out. Then I jammed in the 'feathers'. Once I had a line of feathers in place, I put another line of greenstuff on top of them to hold them in place, and to be the base for the next layer of feathers. Once I had all the pieces ready to go, it went surprisingly quickly. The actual process of applying the feathers only took about two hours. I used my airbrush to apply primer in a zenithal pattern. Because of the complexity of the feathers, it was much easier to use the airbrush to prime it rather than brush it on. Final paint finish turned out pretty well. Here is the same figure painted as a more traditional t-rex. This project was a lot of fun. I spent a lot of time giggling over how the players in my D&D game were going to react when I put this on the table.

    Pathfinder Gargantuan Green Dragon

    Another Mini completed between the strokes of life. (can anyone get the reference, Wish i had the ability) I picked this up a few months ago with the white and red varieties but I wanted to have a dragon i could finish and not worry about whether it came out really well or not. This one came out surprisingly well considering the amount of time I had to work on this. I had fun and it really came out looking well. Still trying to get the magic water right on my dioramas. this one doesn't look bad but it leaked out on me and made a bit of a mess. Live and learn! Hope everyone enjoys this!
  8. I went canon with this. No airbrush. It’s a great sculpt. Really it’s too bad Reaper would have to make a knock off version because of the IP. I bet they’d make a great remorhaz.

    Lord of the Dish Pit Vs Wizkids

    In an effort to stave off "Dwarf Fatigue", figured I'd attempt something different alongside. Wizkids Female Rogues. I've painted these before for some coworkers, and found the one on the right to be extremely frustrating do to how the cloak hung. After some lurking about on the Wzkids thread it dawned on me to use the same "hot water/cold water" technique as for Bones on them. After a resounding "D'oh!" I did so and got good results. They've been hit with some watered down Sepia Wash, and I'm pretty sure I've gotten most of the mold lines. The color scheme I have in mind is the one on the left will be a recreation of the one I gifted to Eleven Coworker, as the sculpt is basically a mini me version of her, and the one on the right will be done in the style of the Dark Brotherhood of Skyrim as her daggers have kind of a Daedric vibe to them. Wizkids Female Barbarians. I haven't previously painted these and am currently undecided as to go with a series of browns/greys on them or if I should attempt to give a certain Stormcloak or Middenheimer vibe to them by adding blues in.
  10. Since beholders destroy things that they look at ...it seemed fitting to adapt the title from Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley. I happened upon 2 beholders at my local game shop. The first was painted with a generic beholder color scheme and the second as Xanathar and Sylgar.
  11. Completed these in the past week or so. Wanted the Dire Wolf's fur to look unnatural; the quality of this particular Wizkids sculpt wasn't as good as I've experienced with the few others I've painted. The Bones Black Owlbear was a pleasure to paint; mostly just washes and dry-brushing. I've noticed that oftentimes people paint the pupils on owlbears to be too large, much like an actual owl. I've found that this diminishes the 'ferocity and scariness' of the owlbear by making it look more surprised.

    Shambling Mound

    A couple of my players/friends gave me this and a gelatinous cube for Christmas and said, "Please don't kill us!" So hopefully he won't smush their characters too much! I wanted to give him a little bit of color so I did some purple and pink on some of the leaves as well as bright mushrooms. I used a few tufts of foliage and moss on him. I didn't want to overdo it and cover too much of the figure. I like how he came out.

    Thri-Kreen Wizkids

    Picked up the pair of Thri-Kreen from the FLGS last week. Decided to paint them up for my DND game as a pair of bounty hunters set to capture the group running in my game. They are, as of yet, unaware that there is a bounty on their heads.

    Week's worth of minis

    I finished a number of random miniatures up this past week or so and thought I'd throw them on here as a batch of bad guys. First up is this killer rabbit from Skull and Crown. This is from their recent kickstarter for bunnies from the margins of medieval manuscripts. This is the 3rd one of these I've painted and I'm still trying to find a scheme I like. But that's ok because I went in for a rather large group of these guys so I'm sure I'll come up with something good before I run out of them. Next up are an Oldhammer goblin from Impact and a barrel mimic from Wizkids. Don't know why, but they seemed like they'd enjoy one another's company while I was painting them up. And finally, here's one of the ogres from bones 3 (77455). My group has already run into a pack of ogres from that kickstarter and narrowly survived. What they don't know is I have a second set. So next time they run into a pack of ogres it will be twice as big. I'm certain they will appreciate that. I also finished the green head on a certain 5 headed dragon. But that's still a long way from being complete.

    WizKids Deep Cuts 2 Wheeled Cart WZK73096

    Wanted to see how the WizKids preprimed figs were, I was going to use it unpainted since it was plastic but also need to kill time between my other figs drying, so I gave it a shot. Came out fine for my tabletop game. Will try some of the hordes of reaper bones I’ve stockpiled from the kickstarters. I’ve always been concerned about the paint flaking from pieces bending

    Owlbear

    I painted the Bones Black, Bones, and Wizkids owlbears as Great Horned Owls. This is the Wizkids owlbear. When you put the three together, they make a crazy singing group!

    Shambling Playground

    I just can't look at tree creatures and think of them as evil or dangerous. Too many good memories of favorite trees. When I was given this mini the first thing I thought of was something along the lines of "that would be a fun place for a swing." I do want to throw this in a game though, and because no one wants to roleplay "let's all take turns on the mobile playground," I made it so the mousling comes off. This almost became a shelf of shame miniature. It's been on my workbench, pretty much finished, since early January. I just couldn't decide on a good way to attach its little friend. I don't care much for the pipe cleaner arrangement, but until I come up with something better, it works. He's going to make an appearance in a game this weekend where he'll try and eat someone. But then it's off to the Kingdom of Mousdom (my wife's desk at work) where I'm sure he'll get covered in other little mouse friends.
  18. Here is my take on the Red Dragon. This ended up being quite a bit more challenging than I first anticipated. Good practice for February. I can’t wait to get started! As always C&C are more than welcome!

    Vardo

    I finally finished painting my vardo. It isn't traditional colors but I think it looks fine for a gnome bard to live in! The model itself came out of the package a bit warped. Not sure what happened to it. Anyway, I used some of my favorite colors to paint it up.

    wizkids pre-primed pirates tabletop

    This was stress relief from bad contractors and totally unplanned. The beach base was a total whim, and works for one. I have no idea what I was thinking with the Obelix type...
  21. You can also see pirates here Girl & boy Noble & farmer Waitress and dancing girl
  22. I have a few pieces I recently acquired, and intend to get a villagers pack that has more. Starting with the deep cuts barrels. 1 oak, 1 mahogany, 1 intense leather?
  23. So yeah, been a long time. I had actually quit painting for some time. 5 or 6 years at least. I had a few false starts getting back in to to the hobby in that time. But yeah, pretty much the last several years, my brushes were dry, and my paints were unopened. Flash-forward to this past August, and I kinda got the itch again. The minis in the Nolzur's Marvelous Minis line for D&D really caught my notice and got me pretty excited. So, I bought a few, got my brushes wet again and, well, the picspam speaks for itself, I think. I have some success, some not quite as successful, but, lots of finished output since August. Also pictured: a WIP of a Blightfang mini I received as a gift a few days ago. It's nice to be painting again.
  24. https://wizkids.com/...games-workshop/ Pretty much what it says on the tin. I'd be pretty shocked to see GW allow Wizkids to produce miniatures, unless they're way out of scale with GW's stuff, but it'll be interesting to see what kind of board games they come up with. I'm also wondering if they're not looking for someone to take the place of the recently expired partnership with Fantasy Flight Games.
  25. The TerrainCrate set I got included a heap of Abandoned Mine stuff, including mine carts, mine cart tracks, pickaxes and shovels, Big Glowy Crystals, crates, barrels, debris, and some dynamite kegs. I'm introducing this to my Weird West game as the Lost Mines of Joaquin Carrasquillo. Joaquin (played by 50319, Olaf, Dwarf Gambler) knows *where* his mining concern is, but has recently lost control of it. Dug too greedily...an' too deep. Awoke summat dark down there, forgotten by th' people of the world above. (It's Grab-oids with the serial numbers filed off.) Anyway, there's a lot of stuff to paint and here's the first installment! Tracks, mine carts, and equipment. The Crate came with three of each mining miniature. I gave the three mine carts slightly different colors (Rough Iron, cheap Gunmetal Grey, and a 50/50 mix of black and metallic pearl), and will probably rust the hell out of one of them. Two loads of coal; I'll need to do some research into silver ore before I paint the third cartload. Rack of mining equipment (needs a touchup and I should paint the lantern glass; also need to wash the wood with something dark) and a bunch of tracks! These probably would have benefited from a more patient man doing the painting. There are a LOT of track pieces--at least six of each straight track bit and three each of the others. I don't think I'll revisit the creosote ties, but I might rust up some of those rails. Typhus Corrosion and a bit of reddish brown, at least. The Crate also came with a set of Dungeon Traps, which included this beautiful mad-science Big Chunky Switch. It seemed like exactly the sort of thing adventurers in an out-of-control mine cart barrelling towards an intersection might have to lasso/shoot so as to switch tracks from Certain Horrible Doom to Possible Unspecified Doom.
