Goblin Pyros!

They are COOL Little Rogue! You did a FINE job with the brushwork & the bases are OUTSTANDING. VERY WELL DONE!

 

Coming up with an interesting & appropriate or inappropriate name, as the case may be, is one of the highlights of miniature painting for moi. A good name can be the inspiration for the paint job & an enhancement once complete. Now then, having said all that, you did a commendable job with the naming, which earns you a second "VERY WELL DONE!".

Nice work!

 

............................."Skullcrotch?"

The nicknames came about when I started making plans "Okay, I need to do a bit more highlighting on Redcap's hat, Frownyface's knife needs a bit more emphasis on the top blade, and I can't forget Smiley's rock...."

 

He's wearing a skull for a codpiece... so what the heck?

Incidentally, thanks to everyone for the kind words!  I'm definitely aiming for a "middle of the road" paint job - better than a speed paint (which for me is probably around an hour,) but not a painstaking 10+ hour job with incredible highlights and butter-smooth transitions.

 

It's hard to say, since I paint 10-15 minutes at a time (then go do something else,) but these guys probably took a total of 4 or 5 hours - this is longer than average for me but I was painting four minis...

I paint in 2-3 hour sessions with 10-14 hours going into each figure with Humbrol paints.....then I see how some artists here can do shading, eyes, skin tones....and I think I didn't do enough.

 

Its interesting to hear how others work.

 

It would even be my style to paint these 4 pyro Goblins one at a time

      It's a cougar!  Specifically it's a firepelt cougar, from the world of Golarion (Pathfinder RPG).
      It's also my submission for the Reaper Challenge League under the January theme of "Ice or Fire".
      Pathfinder authors have described firepelts as having black-and-red or "autumnal" coloration, but I know of only one image in a Paizo book: the 5th anniversary book of Rise of the Runelords shows one as mostly black with thin orange stripes running down its back and orange rings on its tail.  I used that as a point of departure, plus extra reference in the form of photos of cougars, and photos of rare recessive-gene "king cheetahs" that have stripes and large blotchy spots instead of the usual small round spots.
      I cut away parts of this guy's integral base, and sculpted a grouping of rocks that the cougar is descending.
       

       

       

       
      Enjoy!

      My second miniature of the year. This one took me longer than expected but I think it came out okay. I like the heather blue and purple combo. I used a different sealer/varnish this time around and I like the finish a bit more than the brush on I used in the past.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of the forth and last mini I entered in the Pathfinder painting contest. 60118, Order of the Pyre's Hellknight sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
      This time, the colors I selected are completely different from the display model of the Online store. I hope you will enjoy it.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of the third model I entered in the Pathfinder painting contest. This is the metal version of 60009 Seoni the Sorceress sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
      The challenging part on this one was painting the tattoos and the other freehand on her clothes.

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of the 60142 Golden Guardian I painted for the Pathfinder painting contest. This model was sculpted by Tim Prow. It was the perfect miniature to practice my nmm.
