Absolutely everything about this guy is absolutely gorgeous! :wub:  The freehand, the detail work, the OSL, the spell writing - you nailed it all!

[...] I need to make a light box but we live in a small place without much room for storage. All of my painting stuff is on my dining room table atm. I have a hutch to stuff everything in when I am not painting but a lightbox wouldn't fit in there. I'll eventually make one and find some place to put it. [...]

For a while, I had a collapsible light box made from a cardboard carton. I cut the top flaps off; that became the front. I put Velcro tabs on the bottom flaps so I could detach them and collapse the box. From there, it was pretty standard: I cut windows out of three sides, with a 1-1/2" border, and covered the windows with tissue paper (white muslin or frosted plastic works too); and fit a removable roll of paper for the background.

 

I don't have it any more, but it served its purpose, and it folded up and fit behind a bookcase when I didn't need it.

That OSL is fantastic, also impressed by your parchment sculpting. I think the runes came out very well. Can't believe the freehand on his cloak, that is phenomenal.

 I may give that a go. Like I said, I usually take them outside for natural light but sometimes it is too bright and makes harsh shadows and also reflects off the minis. I need to step up my photo game! Having a collapsible light box would be great!

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads

      A long time ago, in March 2019 to be exact, @NomadZeke set a painting challenge for that years April Fools Day. Paint something ridiculous.......20 months later I finally finished my entry for it He's based on a Pathfinder Huge pawn holder for ease of use in games.
       
      I absolutely adore this mini, in my opinion it's the best Huge sized dragons on the market and one of Julie Guthrie's most stunning sculpts 
       
      I humbly present to you, Kyphrixis the multi-hued Rainbow Dragon!

      It's the perfect time of year to show off this little collection of spooky minis!
       

       
      Giant Bats 44040

       
      These little guys are adorable.  They're pretty simple, and it's hard to pick out details in their faces, but I think they're fantastic little minis.  Though their size clearly makes them giant bats, I can definitely see myself using them as "normal-sized" bats for Wildshape or Familiar purposes.  I specifically used the Little Brown Bat as my coloration reference.

      Harrowgate Shrine 77723
      Next up is a bit of scatter terrain.  This is one of the two models in the Harrowgate Shrines set.

      What could it be?  An ancient omen?  The gravestone for a horrific creature?  Or perhaps the beast itself is encased in stone!
      It's not the most exciting of models, but I thought it fit nicely with this little set.  I probably should have based it, but I like basing scatter pieces on flat bases and didn't have one the right size for this.  Might base it in the future.

      Werebat 77448
      And rounding out this set we have the big baddie: the werebat!

      I really like how dynamic this guy is.  Really get the sense he's about to lunge at you, or take off to the skies.  I painted him up like the giant bats.  Don't love the paintjob, but it works.  I really like how his base turned out though.  The model comes on a roughly 1" circular base, but he's pretty top heavy.  I didn't want to give him a 2" base, but I'm really starting to enjoy basing these oversized models on 40mm rounds.  Especially with that tapering rim, they fit nicely without looking out-of-scale compared to other "medium" sized creatures.

      So what's the story?  What would you use these minis for?

      Good Friday everyone, here are pictures of the mini I'll be using as a necromancer in my upcoming D&D game.
      14060, Leisynn the mercenary mage is one of my top 5 favorite model. It was sculpted by Tim Prow for the Warlord game.

      Who let the dogs out (of hell)?

      Hi everyone.  Back again with some infernal pooches.
       

       
      These are the Hell hounds from the Bones 4 Fan Favorites Expansion.  They were fun and challenging.  All those glowing lava details were a pain.  I think I managed to get them to turn out alright though.  Also had fun with the lava bases.
       
      More Photos of the Hell Hounds beneath the spoiler:
       
      In all, I like these guys.  Their bases were a lot of fun and really pop from a lot of my other minis.  I'll be posting more of my infernal collection soon, but figured these were a great place to start.
       
      Which Hound turned out best?
