Winter '08 Painting Contest

Recommended Posts

Greetings everyone, some great entries so far! I know this isn't the most technically adept entry, but I thought I'd take advantage of the contest to repaint an old favorite of mine. This mini used to represent my gnomish bard in the long running Cauldron campaign I played in a couple of years ago. Gnome bards have always been a favorite for me, and I thought it would be a fitting send off for him to blast him with ice and snow, giving him the same cold shoulder that Wizards gave to both gnomes AND bards with their release of 4th Edition.

 

So, hope you can enjoy this amateur attempt. The base is just sculpted polystyrene, and everything's painted with acrylics.

I am just learning how to get a non fuzzy picture when I take pictures of my minis... here is my Sophie! The background is my tree, I thought it looked nice. This is hosted on my brother in law's server, I hope he doesn't fool around with it too much and make the pictures not work.:)

Okay... using dialup, so I'll have to attach the photos when I'm back home... but.

The Snow Goons (Huey, Dewey, and Louie). I figured they'd be best as one entry.

Here's my entry, it's Pharess the Fire Sorceress... I know it's a bit strange to enter a Fire Sorceress in a Winter Competition but it was the only Reaper mini I still had :blush: I hope I managed to hide the firey bits and create an icy feel. So I guess she's an Ice Sorceress now ::):

I've finished two entries, this is my first. I call it

"ReaperCon or Bust!". The figure is a modified Team Frog sculpt that was sold by Reaper at their GenCon booth.

I tried asking if it was a permissible entry but couldn't get an answer. Hope you enjoy it.

I introduce to you the Reaper Ice Witch.

The sword was intended to look like it was made from ice. It didn't come out too badly but of course I wish it were better.

The base is a chunk of broken ceramic floor tile from our remodeling project. The snow was baking soda held on with white glue.

Good luck to everyone in the contest! Hope you all got great presents from Santa.

What says winter like the Winter Wolf? This is my entry for the Winter '08 Painting Contest. The eyes are redder in person. Maybe unintended red eye reduction at work. Anyway, here he is.348921767.jpg
