Okay, so normally I start off my photo dump with a few batches/groups in mind, I do those, then by the end I'm left with a grab bag of minis that don't fit together at all. 

 

In an attempt to end that cycle, I'm throwing the grab bag group in the middle of the week. Instead of the end. So these three guys all have swords. And they are dudes. Those are the only common themes I could find.

 

First up, another repaint of a classic figure. The Games Workshop Barbarian from the best dungeon crawler in the history of dungeon crawlers, Warhammer Quest. His sword was long gone so I replaced it with a Reaper sword from a weapons kit. It made the mini real top heavy so I am going to have to weight the base eventually...

Next up, Judas Bloodspire, Vampire. Super fun to paint...

And lastly, Ragnaros, the evil warrior. I get kinda stuck on heavy armored dudes. I played with hue and color variations and various glazes, etc, but they always end up kinda 'samey' to me. There are things I liked about him though, so here he is.

There's a nice, slightly organic, earthy feel to these paint jobs. Judas Bloodspire reminds me of a Klingon!

Pinky I see the personal advancements you're making as a painter and I hope you continue on this quest.

      Look at this cute fellow!  But don't look directly at his eyes.  Too late?  Uh-oh, I'm sorry if you just turned to stone.
      Anyway ... this is the Basilisk, #77371 in Bones.
       

       

       

       
      The color scheme is inspired by the iridescent plumage of a bird, the White-faced Ibis (Plegadis chihi).  My folders of saved wildlife references include a photo of an ibis whose wing has golden, green, and orangey-pink metallic tones, and its head is more purplish-pink.
      I clipped away part of the integral base and built up this rocky base with putty.
      I added bits of two metal figures as the basilisk's petrified victims: the head is one of the 3 options for the Death Warden (Dark Heaven 03083), and the leg is from my Dwarf Shieldmaiden (Warlord 14379).  I imagine that the basilisk ate the rest of those 'statues' and left these for later snacking. 
      The grass is a preformed "Winter Tuft" product (dull yellow-green and black) with painted highlights, and the leaves are dried oregano, fully painted.
       
      I had used this basilisk as a demonstration figure at ReaperCon 2019 ... or maybe 2018 ... in my "Painting Fur, Feathers, and Scales" class. 
      It was all dark green, with just the front right shoulder area painted with highlights simulating smooth shiny scales. 
      It sat on my shelf since then.  I wanted to paint something small and relatively simple, so I mentally kicked around a few color schemes without conclusion until I rediscovered the image of the ibis last week.
      I spent a couple of hours wet-blending the colors, and then a few more hours glazing and stippling, shifting the scales green and pink and purple and yellow-ocher and orange, etc.
       
      Enjoy!

      After assembling the Graveyard Golem I decided I wanted to adjust the warp of the gates on the golem's back.
       
      So using two copper staples, I shaped them to an arch and gouged a notch on each wing.  Then cut the staple to leave a sharp point.  After that, I insert the staple using pliers and force.
       

       
      Next I will secure the wire to the gate posts with superglue and then shape the wire and wing to the desired warp.  Once setup I will glue the wire to the remaining gate bars.
       
      With the main new bars secured, I will intertwine some floral wire to dress up the bars and gate wings.
       
      Stay tuned and Enjoy.  Please stay safe.

      My first figure 2021. I started painting about 2 years and took a year+ off from it. I decided to get back into and got some new paints and brushes for Xmas. Still working on my technique and would like to hear your opinion.

      Unfurl the mainsails and weigh anchor!  Finally got around to showing off this fantastic pirate captain mini.  Though I've collected quite a few pirate minis in preparation for a nautical D&D campaign, this model was the first I have painted outside of the LTP Kit.  I felt he was missing something pretty important so I sculpted a hat for him.  Pretty happy with the result.  You can see more about how I painted him and my other nautical-themed minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.
       


       
      I am most proud of the jacket and sleeves which I wanted to appear as worn leather.  I think I was successful.  I look forward to painting up a crew for this captain.  Recently discovered a few pirate crews from Warmachine that are calling my name.

      Another tabletop lady - tried stronger source lighting and focused on trying to smoothly blend the very pale skin. Also managed to make a reasonable base with the greenstuff roller this time  - so overall happy to try these things out on her, including the flowers.
