So I got my "bag o' crap" from Secret Weapon Miniatures on Saturday.

 

Inside was:

 

33 x 25mm Bases

7 x 30 mm Bases

9 x 40 mm Bases

1 x 50 mm Base

2 x 64 mm Bases

2 x 25x72mm Bases

1 x 95x116mm Base

1 x 100 mm Base

1 x 120 mm Base

1 x Barricade (65mmx18mm)

1 x 40x40mm Marker? (it's got a "1" on top of it and isn't completely square with wiggly edges)

1 x half circle thing that's 85mm long by 24mm wide and 42 mm tall

1 x 60x60 mm Obelisk which goes up to 132mm in height

 

All in all a pretty dang good haul. The 100mm base I got will be PERFECT for my Sci-fi diorama that I have planned (Jasper's contest).

New WIP Pics!

 

This is Karick-Dar, Apprentice from Guild of Harmony. I did a arm/weapon swap with Zargun, Assassin from the same line. Karick-Dar is the figure I'm painting up for my Pathfinder buddy as his main character Sansulves the Magus. So from here on out he's going to be referred to as San or Sansulves.

 

Anyhow, just got him primed up, drilled holes in his arm and the arm for the weapon to prep, and drilled holes in his feet so that he's now attached to a cork.

The character wears black with red trimmings so I'm going to try to do black some justice and the scimitar is a black blade with red runes on it. So it shouldn't be too challenging of a color palette, but I will keep posting WIP pics of him and asking for advice on how to do it better and see what people like/dislike.

 

Time to get started on laying down base coats tonight!

 

Also, this upcoming Wednesday I'm going to stop by and pick up the Goblin Gunslinger which needs to be painted up before we play again on June 7th.

This is where I ended tonight. Time to get to bed so I can get up in the morning for work.

Getting the face and eyes worked on after slopping some black wash over the whole thing.

More work on the face (pale skin) and eyes (red eyes) along with brown liner slopped over the whole thing as he's going to be black and red anyhow I like having the brown liner down as a good base coat.

 

Right after I took the last pic I added some brush-on sealer to his face because I noticed it was chalky since I'm using some lighter colored paints. 

 

C&C welcomed and appreciated!

I really like that minis from Sebs and you're off to a great start.

 

So the SW marker with the 1 on it is a hidden objective marker, there's supposed to be a top to it with a ? on it, and several others with various numbers. I've bought 4 bags o' crap now (two last year and two this time around) and finally have enough of a set to use them.

 

Ah, Malifaux! I should have known...

 

Couple PCs in our current IK game are represented by Malifaux minis. ::D:

That was actually the exact mini I painted up for a character in my IKRP, they've actually got a great range of Gobbers.

Thanks MS for the complement and the information on the hidden objective marker. I will probably never use the marker for its intended use, so maybe I can re-purpose it.

I thought they were partial sci fi bulk heads, so thanks for the info MS.

No problem guys. It took me a while to figure them out when I got some last year. Had to go hunting on the website to find what they were as I didn't have any tops until this time around.

 

@uber I like the red. I think this piece is going to look great but you may need to go brighter on the grays--possibly up to a leather white or something. Pure white will be too bright unless his robes are metal or plastic.

Brighter on the grays, check. Thanks!

 

I also just toned down the gray highlights on the black a bit with a glaze of the darkest grey, going to hit a few spots with the lighter grey it was just too stark after looking at the pictures I thought.

 

Any other thoughts?

I would paint it up super bright then glaze over everything with a darker gray and bring everything down and smooth out blends. It will make things less bright but keep contrast for you. Think it will be easier then trying to keep balancing between the highlight and shadows.

 

Good black is very tricky to do but I think you're really close.

      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.
