ub3r's WIP's and Workbench!

I notice it has pretty crisp details, but as you said not as good as the resin figure (barbarian dude) that I worked on previously. I also noticed that the resin wasn't nearly as brittle it's no wonder Tre decided not to use the troll cast going forward and went back to pewter/resin. It's just a matter of being more careful for me going forward with these two and the few others I have on hand.

I disagree about the detail on trollcast, it's quite good. It has a ton of issues as a material, primarily miscasting like crazy and Ed keeps playing with the formula so some is brittle as resin and some is a bit more durable. I didn't have any breakage with Svetlana and she's got tiny legs and feet which I drilled and pinned.

 

But look at the detail on the Keeper I'm painting, it's pretty nice (albeit with some miscasting...on the face...).

 

If Ed could figure out the miscasting and durability issues, it's a good material. As it stands, it's just a test material.

Oh I'd say that the troll cast in these is between resin and metal for details and crispness, just my very very limited experience thus far though. Dunno why it seems more brittle to me than the resin figure I worked on, maybe because the other didn't have as tiny of ankles and other bits.

haven't tried any trollcast yet but I had to move to a saw for most resin to prevent breakage. I use a thin xacto like saw and a Dremel for larger things.

What kind of PF game are you playing? one of the adventure paths? I like the harrowed deck on the PC, and his amethyst staff.

When I was doing amethysts on my large EE thin glazes of the 2 main purple shades helped finish it off. 

 

Have you seen the Harrowed deck based PF adventure?  It is where my PC gained the title "Moonwrecker"

We are playing the Rise of the Runelords Adventure Path. The PC that I helped paint up has a harrow deck, is basically like a travelling gypsy who tells fortunes (is really a sorcerer). The player actually bought the Harrow Deck and does readings at our game table and is taking some of the feats/skills/spells associated with using it. Really a lot of fun at the table!

 

I haven't seen the Harrow Deck-based AP yet, which is it?

Its not an AP its a stand alone adventure "The Harrowing".  We played it at 8th level, between books 2 and 3 in Runelords. 

it took us 3-4 sessions, but it could have been shorter with a more flexible DM.

Interesting, I'll have to see if my GM wants to take a shot at that. Our Harrow Deck sorcerer would probably really enjoy that.

      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.
