Now, obviously you know what the winning colors are. But the roulettes? Even I don't know until that step is reached. She could turn out to be lovely . . . or an abomination we must destroy with fire* !




*(mini will not be destroyed with fire - hyperbole, man, dig it)


So the hair was voted Red, and I mean RED. So the base for this is my trusty Aged Red Brick, as seen on TV. Well, not TV. But a monitor is kind of a TV.

Now time for the sword blade, AND our second COLOR ROULETTE!



Are you ready? Spin that wheel!












and the winner is . . .






Righty-o! Well, let's darken that Liche Purple with some Purple Steel and put it on there! And how does our Technicolor Dreamgirl look?







Why, it's none other than Stace Windu, jedi robotic consort to the nefarious General Grievous! She'll give those Jedi scum something to think about, oh yes! She'll beat them purple, she will. Beat 'em til they speak binary.

She looks special. Especially good.



Edit: I just painted a warlock/rogue player in one of my games with a purple sword. I made it all swirly crystal magic, with purple as the base coat, and lime green for the shadows. It look like it's made out of pure evil magic. So, you can rock a purple sword.

So far she still has at least the potential to look ok.


I do, however, rather suspect this will change as we accumulate colors. Or maybe not. I just don't know.


But I do know that, horrid paint scheme or not, she's going up on CMON for votes. I wonder if we'll make anybody cry?


(mind you, if I really wanted to troll I'd stick her up on frothers) :-p

I had a surprise visit from my painting partner (He doesn't have dedicated hobby space, so I lease him a desk for free coffee) and that gave me some time to get cracking and update some of my WIPs.


Ok, so the hilt and armor main color were color roulettes. The hilt came up Reaper PP Rust, and the Armor Reaper PP Slate. Here are the darkened basecoats.


Still not sure if she's on the road to looking good or looking hideous.

      Hey everyone, here's a RAFM model I painted lately. 3615 (C), Necromancer was sculpted by Stephen Koo and was part of the Monsters of Chaos series in 1994.

      10 types and crews as add-ons
      The award winning Rafm Miniatures Siege Equipment was first created in the 1980's. These miniatures have been in production for years but we need your help to retool them, and produce new moulds to continue selling the figures. With your help we can update these items for the modern era.
      This Kickstarter offers eleven items including Bombards, Ballista and Catapults. These items were originally sculpted in 25mm scale but fit nicely with 28mm figures. See the Kickstarter video for images of the pieces in scale to 28mm Peasant Siege Crew sculpted by Bob Murch of Pulp Figures.
      The All-In pledge will give you ten pieces of Siege Equipment for use in any miniature tabletop game. More items can be added to these offerings as we reach greater amounts and open stretch goals. The line has up to 40 different pieces that we can get retooled in this program. Join us and lets see how many of these items we can get retooled.
      All figures are produced in unpainted scaled white metal. Available for use in multiple scales.
      All figures ship in unpainted white metal. The Peasant Seige Crew is 28mm scale and is sculpted by Bob Murch of Pulp Figures.

      I had to change the title since apparently "March of the Murlocs" is already a thing in the current game. And I was so proud of the name, too!
      My husband loves his gift (the biggest and bestest success!!!) but it would have been great if my painting for my ReaperCon entry wasn't so awful two years in a row.
      All the details, rambling love stories, and modding/creation details are in my WIP thread here!

      Hey all! I've been working hard on my husband's surprise birthday present. It was going to be a surprise reveal at ReaperCon, but finances/vacation time mean that it's just me going now. But since I told him about it, that means I get to make a WIP thread! Yay!

      I grabbed these really cool "Deep Ones Mutant Fishmen" by RAFM out of the Box of Goodwill a couple years ago. He accidentally saw them so I've had to wait until I was sure he forgot about them, haha. Oops.
      When we were teens and couldn't meet up, we spent most nights online together. A lot of that time was spent in WoW. With Classic coming out, I thought it would be the perfect time to get these little guys done! He's always loved murlocs and even built entire decks around them in Hearthstone, so I decided to make them based off of cards I've seen him use the most.
      Top: Original minis.
      Bottom: Prepped and repositioned for modding. Arms, fingers, toes, and bases were chopped off. The middle one needed a lot of bending to look natural. One lost his head. They all lost their noses....

      I don't have WIP photos because this was a SECRET.
      They all got little spines drilled and sculpted on, buttcapes, little details like crab and tentacle armor. The reading one got a little "nightlight." I painted the Hearthstone cards before sculpting the head so I could actually reach the book. 

      (This is a HUGE photo if you right click -> open link in new tab. I couldn't make it wider in the thread.)
      I did keep a photo of the angler underpinned head because he looked so happy!! What a cutie! This might be my avatar someday.

      The warleader's sword was made with Apoxie Sculpt for the base and Green Stuff details. I accidentally made it too smooth(?!) because I really struggled to get any GS to stick. That meant I couldn't do the multiple layers I wanted.

      I also made some terrain on a whim. The little huts are pretty iconic to him so I knew he'd immediately find it in the display area! I drew out the sizes I wanted, cut some baked sticks to size, and doused everything in appropriate amounts of superglue and hotglue. The hut top was made with a ball of foil with Apoxie Sculpt. Once it was mostly cured, I removed the ball and smoothed the inside and outside with more clay. Once it's painted, I'll use long grass to mimic the hay. I still need to add little jars, skulls, lanterns, treasure chest, etc.

      Lastly - the cards themselves!
      These card images were pulled from the Hearthstone Wiki and I added some short, awful descriptions.
      Top left: Underbelly Angler. Play a murloc, you get another murloc. He loves this one. This is Booklight!
      Top right: Toxfin. He can destroy most cards in a single hit. He's the one with the stinky fish.
      Bottom left: Warleader. Your other murlocs have bonus attack. Big sword guy!
      Bottom right: Soul of the Murloc. When your murlocs die, they come back with 1 health, 1 attack. He giggles so much when he plays this. It doesn't look unique, but I think I'll use the ghostly scheme on the Warleader. I don't know if I can do that yet!

      Tomorrow I'll be making the little bits and bobs. Hopefully I can arrange all the terrain on Thursday, prime Friday, and be painting next week!
