Sliksham's Corner of the Dining Room Table

Slow progress, its too damn hot to do anything which involves sitting inside and watching paint dry quicker than anything ever seen :;): .

My wet pallette went from wet to bone dry overnight, its England goddammit, its supposed to rain all the time!


Anyway, 1st coat of colour (purple won the day) and a bit of shading, I'll be going at it small brush stroke by small brushstroke next, hopefully the evenings at least will cool down a bit.

I agree it isn't cheap, but it's good to treat yourself now and again :;):


Yeah, you are right, but I want to many. I want the gridiron nun and bunny football team, Thomarillions undead pirates (from black scorpion and eureka, too), and, and, and... ever growing. Faster than I like. .-)


Still have the old ral partha one. I had two, but one is missing... :-( Never painted him, because I'm afraid I don't like the result.

No progress on the beholder but I've got my bones and have been having a play around, in various states of completion:

Liking your Bones so far, got to steal your idea for Afro guys shirt, though I'd have to use a transfer.


Actually that is a transfer, its one of the very old Epic 40k chaos marine tiny transfers, applied, softened up with Microsol and when its dried I painted a few highlights over the top of it.


That's some incredible artworking on the wizard's scroll.


Thanks, I use a 0.3 and a 0.1 mm technical drawing pen, its permanant ink, but it does take a couple of hours to dry properly on the paint. I find it so much easier to draw stuff like that with a pen, my brush control isn't anywhere near as good.

Not sure, the eyes will be the last things I paint on it and will proabaly take me the longest as I hate painting eyes at the best of times.

I am leaning towards a 'normal' round pupil rather than the slitted one that is on the box, maybe that will help.

Far beit for me to criticize the professional paint job on the box, but I get the impression that the eyeball pointing upward towards the eyelid is what's contributing to the half-closed sleepy/stoned appearance. If the eyeball were more centered horizontally or looking slightly downward at a hapless victim, wouldn't that help create a more menacing expression?

      My partner for the Secret Sophie exchange this year was NecroMancer and they requested demons or some other stuff, so I painted the Queen of Hell.  About the same time I had ordered a 3D printer and I had found a base that kind of matched an idea I had in my head.  The printer was going to ship on time, then it wasn't, then it was, and finally came in just in time to print my display base. It is from the celestial pack by Archvillain Games. It's 100mm plus some overhang. For a bit of additional flair I added some blood imps to the base. 
      One thing about pre-made display bases though is they can be next to impossible to actually use if they are not designed well.  This base is an example of that as there is so much rubble that I had to carve away spaces for feet or build up the area with a bit of milliput to give them something to stand on. Since ancient statues were actually painted I decided to go with that and put a simple face on the bit of statue that remained.

      The Queen was actually painted before my printer arrived and because things hadn't gone crazy at work yet, I actually had time to paint her properly.  I went for a stylized NMM on her armor.  It was the first time I had tried NMM this way.  It worked but I need some more practice to really sell it.  I didn't want her to look like some cheap plastic figure (even though she kinda is ) so instead of going red like the blood imps I made her skin mostly human and then put the orange/red/purples in the midtones and shadows.
      Her wings don't fit in my tiny photo setup so...

      And with wings. They were not attached for shipping and needed a bit of support, so ignore the paint bottle.  Bones are evil.  Mold lines suddenly appear everywhere.  And for better or for worse, a year from now her wings will sink toward the earth, but they should rotate and touch the base.

      A few extra pics I took, if anyone wants to look

      This was a repaint from earlier this year. I bought Quickshade Strong Tone for speed painting some of my board games and tried it in Woody. I liked the way it worked for the most part but as you can tell I got some frosting when I matte coated it. Another thing that happened was my paint cracked on my base but I kinda like the way it looks. I probably won't bother fixing any of the issues as I moved on to another figure I am struggling with.

      Back in November I posted over on the Conversion WIP sub-forum about a mounted figure I was making using the Bones 4 Giant Rhinoceros Beetle and the Mudcroak Squog figure: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93699-frog-riding-beetle-conversion/
      This past week I finally got around to painting the converted figure, and I  wanted to share the results.
