Really? Well, now, I might be willing to help you get rid of those nasty old things. As a favour, you see, to my newfound friend.

 

Even have some old AD&D branded ones...they're probably all bricks by this point though. Should probably just bin the whole rack, signage and all...

 

 

Noooooooo!

 

Noooooooo!

 

 

Those are priceless historical relics, they belong in a museum. My museum! Also known as room full of junk n' stuff.

 

Do not throw them out. I will put on my fedora, jump on top of the nearest truck, ride to your house and bullwhip you. Srsly. Done it before, I'm on a watch list.

 

What you should do, instead, is find these precious artifacts and begin wondering exactly what you might be willing to accept for them from a nice goblin buddy old pal who isn't especially picky if they're still in top condition.

 

It's the sensible alternative.

Ok, I promised some scale pics of some of the recent releases earlier this evening. It has been a not-good night, so I am just finally getting to them now.

I hope things are looking up for you and thanks for your efforts!

I find it interesting that Vampire pledgers are actually now getting more for their $ than Undertakers.

 

Considering that Sophie is $25, we're actually getting the minis for $75, which is 57.7 cents a mini for Vampires, and 60.8 cents a mini for Undertakers.

It's going to keep getting better though, and for both. I still plan on getting one of each pledge ($400) though. I simply must have them all. xD

 

It's going to become more and more difficult to choose Undertaker vs 3 vampire levels though. If you consider $400.. I could get 520 minis if I got 4 vampire levels, vs the 500 I'm getting for Vampire + Undertaker.

Wrong place :P

 

There's no such thing as a wrong place when it comes to me scavenging for Partha stuff.

 

That's the equivalent of telling a Trekkie about a box of old props found in an attic.

 

I'm a Partha picker, born and raised

The game shop is where I spent most of my days

Filing and priming, relaxing all cool

Painting up some giants outside of the school

When a couple of wizards who were up to no good

Started making trouble in my neighbourhood

They made one little game, with collectible cards

And then poor old Ral Partha was bust up to shards

Sorry buglips, but I was not responding to your Partha fetishism post :P

I was just (trying to) post Shakandras size shots in the KS links thread. And I couldn't find a delete post button so I edited it out.

Thanks for that, Buglips. Now that'll be stuck in my head all day.

I have a sneaking suspicion that if another Pathfinder set of minis were revealed, say Pathfinder villains, this thing might explode off the charts.

 

Pathfinder (core) heroes might accomplish the same.

I wouldn't have guessed so, but then I didn't even know what it was. D&D ceased to exist for me after 2nd Edition.

 

But having learned that Pathfinder is a continuation of 3.5 under the OGL . . . yeah, I can see it being that big. I know an awful lot of people who were awfully displeased with the release of 4th.

 

 

This amused me, actually, because I felt that way about 3rd. And the old hippie guy at the comic store felt that way about 2nd.

It is quite the thing among D&D folk yes. If I wanted to play D&D nowadays it would definitely be pathfinder not WoTC's crazy mangled beast.

Also the sculpts for many of the pathfinder thingamajigs are really good, so that helps.

I just hope they don't release all the iconics, I have most of them, besides we already have oh so many heroes on the kickstarter.

In a word, yes. More importantly, the people who like it, REALLY like it, and will throw serious money at it.

      It's the perfect time of year to show off this little collection of spooky minis!
       

       
      Giant Bats 44040

       
      These little guys are adorable.  They're pretty simple, and it's hard to pick out details in their faces, but I think they're fantastic little minis.  Though their size clearly makes them giant bats, I can definitely see myself using them as "normal-sized" bats for Wildshape or Familiar purposes.  I specifically used the Little Brown Bat as my coloration reference.
      More Bat Photos Below:
       
      Harrowgate Shrine 77723
      Next up is a bit of scatter terrain.  This is one of the two models in the Harrowgate Shrines set.

      What could it be?  An ancient omen?  The gravestone for a horrific creature?  Or perhaps the beast itself is encased in stone!
      It's not the most exciting of models, but I thought it fit nicely with this little set.  I probably should have based it, but I like basing scatter pieces on flat bases and didn't have one the right size for this.  Might base it in the future.
      More Shrine Photos Below:
       
      Werebat 77448
      And rounding out this set we have the big baddie: the werebat!

      I really like how dynamic this guy is.  Really get the sense he's about to lunge at you, or take off to the skies.  I painted him up like the giant bats.  Don't love the paintjob, but it works.  I really like how his base turned out though.  The model comes on a roughly 1" circular base, but he's pretty top heavy.  I didn't want to give him a 2" base, but I'm really starting to enjoy basing these oversized models on 40mm rounds.  Especially with that tapering rim, they fit nicely without looking out-of-scale compared to other "medium" sized creatures.

      So what's the story?  What would you use these minis for?

      Who let the dogs out (of hell)?

      Hi everyone.  Back again with some infernal pooches.
       

       
      These are the Hell hounds from the Bones 4 Fan Favorites Expansion.  They were fun and challenging.  All those glowing lava details were a pain.  I think I managed to get them to turn out alright though.  Also had fun with the lava bases.
       
      More Photos of the Hell Hounds beneath the spoiler:
       
      In all, I like these guys.  Their bases were a lot of fun and really pop from a lot of my other minis.  I'll be posting more of my infernal collection soon, but figured these were a great place to start.
       
      Which Hound turned out best?
    • By MoonglowMinis
      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.

      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.

      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.

      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?
    • By MoonglowMinis
      How's it going everyone?  Got a handful of baddies to show off today.  Painted these a few months ago and still pretty proud of them.  They're a mix of the Brigands from the Bones 4 Core, and the Bandits from Bones 3: Stoneskull Expansion.

      Painted them up to match.  They'll work great as bandits, thugs, mercenaries, or militia men.  Very versatile figures.  They were also a great opportunity for me to practice my face-work.
       
      Brigands (3) 77707

      I'm assuming the upcoming bones "Brigands" are in fact these three.  Lovely little models.  I'm a big fan of the slightly chunkier bones models that have been coming out lately.  They tend to have larger surface areas and better-defined edges.  They also tend to have less clutter.  This makes for an easier, cleaner paint job in my opinion.
      More Photos below the Spoiler:
       
      Bandits 77507,77508,77509,77510

      These four are from the Bones 3 Stoneskull Expansion.  I've had them sitting around for awhile, but decided to paint them up with the Brigands.  They have similar enough designs to fit together.  In general, I like their design less, but once I painted them up that didn't matter.  Perfectly serviceable mooks!

      Who's your favorite of the bunch?  I'm partial to the Executioner myself, with the Bandit Bully taking a close second.

      I have done about 15 minis over the past year (starting with the Learn to Paint kit), after taking a 30+ year break from painting lead with Testors enamel. Each one I try to learn or improve one technique. This one I focused on pose & basing (took a little surgery to get rid of the pudding base and shape all the claws). The 'rock' is a chunk of bark. Any comments, critiques, questions or suggestions are welcome. Between this forum and YouTube, I am amazed on the knowledge and information available, in an overall great community. Getting ready for Bones V delivery!
