03372: Torasin Karpheus, Dervish Warrior

Recommended Posts

Another outcome from a weekend of painting. This mini is special to me, as it was sculpted for my friend, who won a contest; I hadn't had the chance to paint my copy of it until this weekend; but I had fun with this one.


Freehanded the gold on the banner

I love this sculpt! It's a little difficult to tell what's doing with the face in the photos, but the overall color scheme is harmonious and attractive.

It is a nice solid work.

If you think you are ready, you can try some other techniques like dry-brush, highlights, washes, and so on. The BONES line is great (cheap, and great quality) for it.

I am scare every time I start a new paint job, and more afraid when the base paint is good and I have to try to do the techniques above. But the results will pay off! At least some will, and the other ones that won´t turn in so good, at least will gave you the experiences to do the next ones.


So, to Infinity and Beyond!

Did you use the macro setting for these pictures? Sometimes when I do, I get part of the mini out of focus, and blurring. But when the blurring is on the banner as it is here, I feel it gives the illusion of motion, which is fantastic for this mini.

I used a Nikon D3100 with the 18-50mm lens; zoomed in fairly tight, shot from a close distance (about 3 inches), and then cropped down a bit; due to the closeness of the camera, depth of focus ends up being a very narrow plane, which leads to the blurring of the banner.

      Hello all,
      Starting a new WIP for a mini I'm working on for one of the players in my D&D 5e campaign.
      One of her characters is a Tiefling Eldritch Knight, so I have selected the glaive-weilding S'Kara to be the starting point for this project...

      As you can see, I have just begun. I have primed the mini, and used a pair of pliers to slightly curve her horns, to achieve a more ram-like, less devil-like look.
      I'm currently in the process of selecting colours for the cloth portion of her outfit. Any suggestions or ideas? (Fyi, she will have dark brown hair and olive skin).
      As always, comments and constructive feedback are always welcome!

      Introducing the newest demon lord in my miniatures collection...
      The Minotaur Demon Lord, aka Baphomet, aka "the Horned King", aka "the Prince of Beasts."

      This miniature was quite a bit bigger than the metal demon lord minis I've painted previously. A bit of a challenge, but I'm pleased with the result!
      If anyone is interested in the play-by-play of me painting this miniature, feel free to check out the work in progress thread on the forum.

      Greetings everyone!
      First of all I am so sorry If I create this topic in wrong place. So I'm kindly asking your forgiveness. Other than that, as the title says, I need suggestion help ladies and gentlemen.
      I am looking for a miniature figure, and this will be my very first tabletop FRP miniature which I'm going to buy for a current game, (Curse of Strahd, 5 edition D&D) 
      But I couldn't find what I'm exactly looking for.
      My character is going to be a noble knight, an Oath of Vengeance Paladin in his prime. So I found some miniatures but it's not what I'm looking for.
      (14508) Vernone, Ivy Crown Captain
      (03324) Stern Kestrelmann, Paladin Hero
      (03348) Quinn Nolan, Heroic Warrior
      (03715) Erick, Paladin Initiate
      So I found them, but only one of them doesn't have a shield in his hands. I'm looking for to use some polearm mainly, and a greatsword alternatively.
      <TS: Edited for Commerce link>
      So as you can see up there, I'm looking for a medieval, heroic, plate wearer knight with a halberd, polearm or a sword without shield (or shield can be worn on side)
      Please help me with some suggestions! 
      Thank you all!

      I've been playing in a Rise of the Runelords game since last October, and we finally finished up today.
      Since I knew it was the last session, I wanted to do something nice for the GM. I decided to paint up a mini of the main boss of the campaign, Karzoug.
      Hopefully it took a bit of the sting out of us taking him out in one round.
