Evilhalfling's Resolutionay Challenge January

Recommended Posts

I got a new vampire box of bones, from the friend who talked me into buying one in the first place.

So now I get to repaint all the minis I painted when I was just starting.  


is now 



This guy is a repost, now with gold bracers.  He is from mice and mystics board game (I only bought the figures)  and has gone from hero to villain  In my campaign he is known as "The Lord of Cats" 



This figure will shortly serve as a Dire Lion, so I wanted to paint him as cat like as possible. Ill post the earlier (hellhound version) after I get a new picture of him. 



 I think I completed hound in late 2013, shown is a second attempt at the him, the first was terrible. and thankfully has no photos.

Good stuff!! With the kobolds, I'm assuming you meant the first pic is Kobolds from your first Vampire box, and the second pic is from the new box? That's a neat idea, showing Mk.1 and Mk.2 versions!

Round 2 looks good.  Painting the same figures again is a great way to see improvement.  I recently bought duplicates of the first couple figures I ever painted to see if I can do a better job this time around.

I think the main differences are the thickness of the paint, when I started it was always too thick. I did very little shading on the kobolds this time around, mostly its real shadows. I even used metallic paint instead of taking the time with NNM.  My photography set up has improved, showing the details better. 


That and the weapon conversion. One of the arms is mostly greenstuff, with a reused hand and a new sword. I was going for an arm, but ended up with a sleeve instead. I am more proud of the attempt than the result.

EXCELLENT PROGRESS! Hanging on to a couple of the first stage minis might be a good way to remind yourself just how far you have come...we do tend to down play our accomplishments. GREAT STUFF!

      I have wanted to get into painting for a long time and have watched days worth of videos on it. i think it shows in how my first minis came out.
      the first was a reaper kobold and he looks a bit sloppy. (on the card for the hobby holder i got because i could not find anything else to put him on for the pic lol)
      next was a blue kobold and a baby dragon, I was still working on how washes work with the blue kobold but the dragon came out better.
      now the one i did today

      I am pretty proud of him, for being my forth mini i think he looks really good. he is colored like a ring neck snake.

      I recently finished a group of Reaper Bones miniatures. As they are so small they were a little hard to paint at some points. I'm fairly new painting miniatures so I was looking for some feedback and potentially some tips on how to improve in the future. All comments, advice, and constructive criticism is welcome. 
      My own main criticism with them is the highlights as I'm not 100% where/how to paint proper highlights to make a natural look without a ton of brush strokes.

      I got really sick for almost the whole month of June and it took me some time to get my strength back to paint again. I speed painted these guys this week to get my hands moving again.
      I'm taking these to a weekend long gaming session this weekend. Then when I return it's back to getting ready for ReaperCon.
      I hope you like my kobold army. It was fun to paint. 

      To be sure. That last photo isn't from Bones 4.

      This is my most ambitious attempt to date.  A mini-campaign I’m running some people through calls for many kobolds of varying colors and classes.  I had 12 Kobolds from Bones I, the 4 pack in metal that those were based off of (03064), the metal Leader and Sorcerer (03024), the 12 awesome new kobolds from Bones 4, and a 7 pack (I may have gotten a freebie, I thought I bought a six pack) of kobolds from the Ral Partha TSR Official D&D 2nd Edition line, stamped 1989.  That’s a whopping 37 figures.  I want to paint tribes from all 5 chromatic factions, and want to have as few duplicate poses per faction possible.  The Ral Partha kobolds have a more simian or canine face compared to the more reptilian face of the Reaper models, but I’m still going to fold those into each faction.  The Adventure calls out a Cleric (Red) a Ranger, (Green) and a Sorcerer (Green).  Those are the only ones with specific art, and I have models representative of each present without need for modification.  Also, I am not planning to add to the bases at all.
      And I want to finish all of this in about a month (unlikely)!
      Wish me luck!
