I think that you did a fantastic job. I've been mulling over picking up that wizard sculpt for a while and you totally convinced me that I need to purchase it and paint it up.

 

 

Amazing! The hound is great, and I think the bent stick gives the whole thing some character. ::):

 

 

Great job. And honestly - I sincerely like that you didn't straighten the staff. It actually gives the staff a little more character. :)

 

 

 

Thanks, I was starting to think it may begin to upset me each time I looked at the staff. Very nice to hear. :)

How can you go wrong with a wizard holding a sword and a staff. That is the eqivalent to a couple of machine guns in realms of fantasy.

Fantasic job my friend. MUCH MUCH MUCH better than I ever did as a kid gobbing Testors on my Grendiers. :lol: So no worries there, I think you either you must have done better than you thought you did back then, or you have taken many steps up in the intervening years.

 

And yes, you have the skill to tackle the eyes. I'm not missing them here... but it's one area that I recommend pushing yourself because I am sure you will be pleased with the results.

 

Can't wait to see more of your stuff!

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.

Thanks for posting. You have made a tremendous start.

 

I know,what you mean about fancy paints. When I got back into the hobby I used some cheap acrylics and they were horrible to use. Think there is a big difference if you use good brushes and quality paints. I hear lots of good thing about MSP on these forums and will be ordering some.

I don't think you can go wrong with any of the fancy paints out there. I saw some finised with P3 paint at my local game store and they had a totally different look to them. I really liked the finished look (grass is always greener...) but the guy told me they were very unforgiving with making mistakes. I bought a lot of reaper paint, the droppers were a big selling point, but want to try some others in the future.

      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.
       
      For more of my winter minis, check out my Frostrun Project HERE.

      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.
