ub3r's WIP's and Workbench!

On the bigger base I'll put the torso and an arm. The smaller base probably an arm or cut it down to a hand if the arm doesn't fit.

 

Thank your daughter for me :)

I vote for the Greataxe. To me, it's my go-to weapon for barbarian characters. Falchions are nice but more exotic.

Thanks for comments on the greataxe, I've been leaning that way as well!

"don't you know the Dewey Decimal System?"

I'm assuming this is from Pinkie and the Brain?

No, No it's not. I feel sad that I have to explain my joke, but alas. such is life. And it is why we have Youtube.

As to the base, Bones show their usefulness again!

 

 

Yes they do, very cheap terrain pieces!

 

Been home today as I'm waiting for a plumber to get here and change out our hot water heater that went kaput this weekend :grr: . So I'm taking advantage of the time to paint/prime/base . Currently the base for barbarian dude is primed up after I figured out the placements of all the body parts and now I'm waiting on the primer to dry. Will show more pics as I get everything in place.

 

I am going to start on the greataxe now as I found one that looks super cool in my weapons bits and primed it up. It just so happens that it fits PERFECTLY resting on the arm I'm putting on the smaller base and goes right up to his arms where he is leaning on it naturally as the figure had him leaning on a sword originally. I can see the finish line now, maybe be able to get him done today!

      I think I've hit that point where I can admit, I officially have too many projects going. I have three figures in various stages of being painted (the orc, elf ranger, and a halfling PC). I have a full box of Cadian Shock Troopers primed with only one test painted and that one isn't even fully test painted. There are three kobold in various stages of being painted and modified. I found some plastic skull rings that are being painted to be used as shields. I think the kobold with the sword would look great with a shield. Last but not least I have a wiz kids miniature I'm working on for my wife.
      At the moment I don't have a dedicated painting station, our place right now is pretty small. So I started using an old carving knife box to store my ongoing projects. It's never been this full before though. I know I can't be the only one with this problem, heck this might even be a mild case.

      Hail Repearites,
      Since my Bones I Kickstarter package arrived recently and I started to paint them, I decided that now is a good time to sporadically post my progress here, and maybe receive some valuable input.
      These are all meant to be tabletop quality (i.e. better quality than WotC's minis - the old batches).
      I am a newbie painter.
      I don't have a lot of spare time, so I sneak a few minutes here and there where I can.
      Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
       
      First up is a WIP of a paint and take from a local comic convention. We painted three space marines in 45 minutes, using truly horrendous brushes (think of Buglips brushes post Kaladrax), and Citadel paints (one red for base coating, one brown wash for shadowing everything, one pink dry goo for highlighting, and one grey gravelly paint for the base. I wish that I had taken down their names).
      This was a lot of fun, and most of all proved to me that I CAN paint minis quick and dirty and yet get a good enough result for tabletop games.
      The space marines were primed in black when we got them. The first coat was just sloshing red paint over them. The brushes allowed for no subtlety here. Think of painting a Reaper Bones Kobold with a tree trunk and you'll get the idea.

       
      Second coat: weird pink highlights. iPhone camera barely shows them, so you'll have to believe me.
      Third coat: shadow with the black/brown wash/ink - I think it had oil in the name.

       
      Final coat: basing the marines with a grey paint that had little bits of gravel on it - and explained why the brushes looked the way they were.

       
      After that I did some touch ups, but for some reason I can't find a picture of the results. I'll snap one later and attach it to this post.
       
      Next post : Flesh Golem, the oh so famous rats, and an orc and a goblin meet in an adventuring group.
