Thank you so much! I painted them about a month ago stripped them and then painted them again. I was so happy at first, but as I worked on other figures I started to become very unhappy with them. The hound went from a craft store orange spice color to reaper ice blue. I shunned the fancy paints at first, but they seem to really make a difference and are easier to use.

I am working on dioramas for other figures I finished before these that I hope to post soon. I also practiced on a ton of plastic minis from board games.

Very nicely done for a guy who was petrified.

 

You do know your wizard's staff got bent in packaging and isn't supposed to be that twisted, right?

Aw, it looks cool anyway.

 

That's a very nice start, ML. People do get weird about eyes. I have wondered for a while if miniature eyes could work just solid black or brown, and it looks like yours do.

 

Welcome and happy painting.

I worked on unbending that sword for a long time.

I didn't know his staff was bent too! lol. Well, a gnarled stick is a gnarled stick :)

but thanks both of you.

I believe this is the second mini of yours I've seen posted here now. You've obviously a skill, looking forward to watching it develop. ::):

 

About the eyes. One thing that I've noticed over my years in the hobby is that certain painting techniques fall in and out of favour and then back in again. My point is for you to paint the mini in the style and to the standard that suits you. If you do want to try something new or different this is a great community to ask questions in.

Like the knight I commented on earlier, very smooth painting. You are doing well at the beginning and that is something to be proud of, since a lot of us could not say our first jump into this newer era of miniature painting went as well. Keep up the good work. As for the eyes it is personal preference, especially if you are painting up gaming pieces. I would say if you are planning on contest painting then you might want to work on the eyes in more detail.

      Happy New Year's Eve everyone. To end the year with a little snow, I completed this base today. I had painted the Yeti two years ago, and he was only lacking a thematic basis. This is the Bones version of 77434, Yeti Chieftain sculpted by Jason Wiebe. The artificial snow is BF4103 from Army Painter Battlefields. The icicles were made with pieces of translucent plastic and gloss Mod Podge.

      Kinda wish he'd been a bit furrier as all the armour plates came out a bit bland.

      Hi all.  Another entry in my winter-themed minis.  This guy was intended to serve as the BBEG in my Frostrun campaign.  Kriger was the descendant of a greedy half-giant king who's line had been cursed to undeath.  Kriger sought to lead an army of Draugr and vikings to reclaim his family throne.  This "chaos warrior" model from Bones 4 was perfect.

      I really like how this guy turned out.  He was one of those minis where I really pushed myself and tried some different things.  I think it shows.  Hopefully I'll get to continue his story, and return to my Frostrun game.  Maybe by then I'll have found some suitable viking-esque warriors to accompany him.

      A winter storm buried my part of the globe in snow last night so I'm filling a bit chilly.  So today's the perfect day to show off these frigid little birds from Bones 4.

      These were a fun little set, though they took me longer to do than I anticipated.  So much black and white really killed my motivation.  Glad they're done and decently satisfied with the results.  They make a nice addition to my winter collection.  If you want to see more of my wintery minis, check out my ongoing Frostrun Project Here

      Blood War - An Ongoing Painting Project
      Time to start another WIP to keep track of my growing armies of fiends.  Unlike my other two WIPs, Frostrun and Dark Tide, this one does not have a D&D campaign attached to it.  Though the project did start because of a game.  My players had been facing a threat of the barriers between worlds collapsing.  This of course lead to demons and devils spilling into their world, and eventually lead to them traveling to the lower planes.
      We had nearly wrapped up that plot point before in-person games had to be put on hold.  And though I likely have enough minis to get me through that arc, I love how the groups have been shaping up, and I'm now motivated to continue to expand the respective armies.
       
      The Blood War
      In D&D lore, the Blood War is an endless turf war between the Devils of the Nine Hells, and the Demons of the Abyss.  There's a bunch of extra fluff in there, but most of it is kind of complicated and, in my opinion, uninteresting.  At this point all that I care about it painting up some minis to represent at least 1 of each various type of Demon and Devil.  And if I still have steam after that I can look into the neutral Yugoloths.
       
      The Devils

      Up first we have the Devils.  I' like the bases on these guys best.  I definitely prefer some of the warmer red tones better than the dark ones, and the lava bases are a nice touch to break up the red as well.  So far we have the following:
       
      Imps - (Nolzur's)
      Hell Hounds - (44100)
      Legion Devils - (77065, 89039)
       
      And a sneak peak of the following:
      Blue Abishai
      Chain Devils
       
      The Demons

      The demons here have a colder color palette.  I tried keeping to shades of blue, green, and purple.  I might try to brainstorm some more interesting basing options, but for now the purple earth is enough to differentiate and unite them.  So far we have the following:
       
      Quasits - (77335 and Nolzur's)
      Bulezau - (77680)
      Barlgura - (77260)
       
      And a sneak peak of the following:
      Chasme
      Balor
       
      I've got a handful of Demons primed and waiting for paint as well.  This project will be ongoing, likely between other projects.  But it will be fun to see their numbers increase.
