Official thread is supposed to be for arrivals/departures only w/o pics or chatter. It helps us track things better.

 

THIS thread is the right place to put pics and/or links to show offs.

Look up the legend of Wendigo. Its actualy creature from mythology. Might be a touch more frightening then if I recall them correctly. I'm glad your happy with it

My request sheet that I sent Fanguad:

 

 

-Miniature Information: Inbound-
What do you want to receive?
Would like fantasy monsters. Just started Reign of Winter Campaign as a Dwarf Gunslinger. So winter themed please.
What DON'T you want to receive?
PC Types. I tend to have players pick their figures and color schemes. Then paint them. I have Winter wolves, Yeti are coming.
What material you want to receive?
I prefer metal. I am old school!
Do you have a particular color scheme in mind?
No, just winter themed.
What style of basing would you prefer?
Winter themed, both display and game piece. I usually decorate the base the figure has.
Please give your partner some inspiration, especially if you have very few preferences above.
Again winter / fey themed for the campaign.

 

 

 

So everything was exactly matched!

How much better does it get????

 

Thanks ever so much!

My son had just asked me if I knew what a Wendigo was when I got home tonight!

He meant the Marvel Comics version...

Lets just say they come Algonquin legends and are nasty. Just feed it your enemies given what they are spirits of primarily.

 

Thank you ub3r I was quite proud of how he turned out. I worked on on dry-brushing so my Flesh wash would remain on him as clearly visible.

 

Thank you for the pics Knarthex. I was unable to get any for him so I could show him off more.

 

 

 

P.S. Could I use your pics to post him to the Inspiration Gallery. I just realized there are none in there.

That windigo is terrific!  Very nice work and I love the old blood tracing and splatter. 

 

Mine is leaving New York to continue its journey.  Time and patience....

Received a mysterious package today and upon opening it. There was a slightly smaller, much more colorful box. Inside this was a wonderful looking miniature and a great display base. I did have to do some very minor repairs to the basing, but I am extremely happy with how this one looks. Thank you so much. Will post pics tomorrow.

      My exchange partner this year was Fealron and one of the ideas suggested was a new enemy or villain to throw against his players.  I had this guy on hand and wondered if a giant werewolf would fit the bill: 
       
      14030: Vasyl, Rageclaw Alpha 


       
      While I was painting that I came across these guys and they just begged to be henchmen: 
       

      The one in the middle I believe is an old Grenadier, the others are clix. 
       
      Meanwhile, back at the ranch I did a little digging and discovered that Fealron has a set of DwarvenForge, so I felt compelled to paint these as a gift.  It's all molded from Hirst Arts molds (except the barrel mimic).  I hope they provide hours of fun play.

      My partner this time around was Clearman.  He requested a heroic character painted heroically, and nothing says heroic quite like the word "Hellknight."  Of course, I haven't actually played the adventure(s) that Pathfinder Hellknights appear in so maybe they are cuddly people.  We'll say she just finished up a heroic day of undead slaying.
       
      Metals are TMM, which my camera hates, but I think I managed to get a few decent shots.  For something different I painted the base using pigments rather than hobby paints. I used the wet method of applying them and the color shift is huge, so I wasn't sure how they would come out until they dried.  Of course you can be intentionally sloppy because any pigments on the mini's boots just help "tie the figure to its base." I freehanded some wood grain onto the shaft of the weapon just to add some interest to the boring space.

      Any interest in a new round of trading cards? 
       
      What is an artist trading card (ATC)? 
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artist_trading_cards
       
      Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artists create, trade and collect art at organized "swap" events, either in person or online. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5" x 3.5". Most swaps are open to any media, materials or techniques as long as the card fits into a standard trading card sleeve.
       
      http://www.tinteddy.com/introduction-to-atcs-what-are-artist-trading-cards/
       
      If I can get 6 or more people I will set up a round of 1-1 trades for forum members. Post here or PM me if you'd like to participate.  I am thinking of an Oct 1 start date and Dec 1 due (in the mail) date.

      well, he finally made it out of the house!  My exchange is officially in the mail.
       
      My exchange partner had asked for something futuristic and something either goofy or scary, so of course I went with ludicrous.  What do you give the giant demonic poisonous spider that has it all?  high tech lasers and missile launchers!  I have been building and painting some of my eldar pieces and decided that they could use a mascot.
       
      As for things I haven't done in a while.  I have started to play with decals again as a way of adding some interest to my larger grav tanks and space ships so I thought I would add a few here for fun.
       
      The weapons pack is removable if my partner wants to use him as a basic giant spider (actually I got a few complaints from the arachnid union when we discussed permanent attachment...)  there are to pointy pins that attach the weapons pack to the back of the spider (bones material does have its uses.
       
      So here is the Mark I demonic assault spider.  I hope everyone enjoys him!
