Excellent as always, Mr. Schubert.


Some things I'm enjoying on first inspection.


The little areas you pushed the blue of the coat up high, the right elbow, left wrist, and the general upper jacket area. The glaze to black is something I've been playing with (it's somewhere on each of the 3 minis for my wedding gift project), but the highlight push is inspiring.


The definition in the face. It had to be fun taking it from sculpt to paint, because you can put the exact expression on him that 'the sculptor' intended :) The flesh tones are immaculate. I love the highlights on the face, is that pushed to a yellow?


And et cetera, the richness of the reds, the nice creamy lace, the subtle yet effective pants and spats. I even like the base, nice clean sculpt and amazing colors.


Each mini you paint is an excellent lesson. Thanks so much for just doing what you do.

Thanks, everyone!


@ShadowRaven: I hope the figure is out by the time you get to play this adventure ... and I hope I haven't spoiled things for you! I was deliberately vague in my words, anyway.

@Cassu and @TheBucklandBrewer: Yeah, I had fun sculpting and painting that hair. It is surely a source of pride for him....

@Maglok: Oops, you're right about the title. Thanks! (Edited now.) The first-edition AD&D Monster Manual listed the devil Baalzebul as "Lord of the Flies (Lies?)"

@AnneO'Leary: The Bones Kickstarter has commandeered most of Reaper's working capacity for the past few months, I'm sure, but I hope this figure isn't delayed much longer.

@CashWiley: I pushed the highlights on the blues as if the fabric had some sheen to it, but I didn't want it to go too bright -- you can see in the cover art how much darker the suit is overall. The shadows go down to Nightshade Purple and Brown Liner. And the face is distinctive with its long straight nose and wide mouth, which I tried to capture in the sculpt and enhance with the painting. The highlights go up from Rose Shadow to Creamy Ivory and Linen White, so you're noticing the yellow playing off the blue. The reds include Burgundy Wine and the Reapercon special Big Top Red (a little more violet than Carnage Red). The adventure places him in a room with a stone floor, so I sculpted the base to match -- with some judiciously angled "fallen stone blocks" to play off the figure's slight angles -- and then spent about 2 hours overlaying browns, purples, olive green (like his eyes), golden-yellow, Aged Bone, etc. There's a bit of Olive Green in the lace cuffs, too. Thanks for the careful observations!

      Okay, with Reapercon coming up I will be running some Stargrave & Frostgrave games. So I have been in the position with transporting BOXES of minis and terrain before, and even though I have a truck, I thought that there might be an easier way to carry the stuff. Both of the 'Grave games are heavy terrain and while this is part of their charm, it will be much easier if I can limit the number of boxes going to Texas with me. Then the other day in Hobby Lobby, I was trying to figure out how to build this stuff, when I found their collapsed gift boxes. Perfect! And CHEAP! So I hit them with some variety of spray paint and then used the Plastic Mesh for windows after they dried. I am a bit concerned because I tried good old Elmer's Glue and I am not 100% confident in it's ability to work on the plastic of the mesh. So, everything is drying tonight and tomorrow will be the acid test when I try folding the boxes into their flat configuration. Anyway, here are the pics as I went along.

      I call him Borem, Da Finder of da Way. Almost complete!

      I figured if he's operating underground most of the time, he should blend in.

      Simple cloak work:

      Black jack painted up as a spellcasting rogue, hence the osl effect on the outstretched hand.
      Painted 90% with oils. Much easier to learn with them when it is essentially monochrome and you can just focus on light and shadow.

      Hey everyone! I completed Dorella last September and just found some time last week to paint and add her pet next to her. Here's Dorella Kreeg and her Giant Rat familiar named "It Tickles". She's a sorcerer in The Hook Mountain Massacre Written by Nicolas Logue, the third chapter in the Rise of the Runelords adventure path published in 2007 for Pathfinder.
      60027, Dorella Kreeg the Ogre Shaman was sculpted by David Summers and the 07031, Giant Rats (familiar) were sculpted by Julie Guthrie. There is a magnet under the rat that has no base so it can stay securely on Dorella's base or be removed when the other model is used individually on its 25mm base.
