Currently madly trying to finish Orkz

Recommended Posts

More WIP on my koptaz = they're almost done =D Just need to do the pilot, really. I did some transfers for the first time, some decals. They worked out pretty good. I need to learn to be more patient with them but otherwise only a couple places I messed up (not easily seen in this picture).

yup! they're a mishmash. It kind of started because all of the rotor blades were broken when I got the models (ebay) and then I decided, well, Orks just stick stuff together so voila, thus is born the not-really-flying fliers lol The middle one didn't have any blades at all, so I'm toying with making some from plasticard when I get time, but it looks kinda neat the way it is too I think.

You've got a lot of very cool projects going on!

 

I love the heavily weathered Avatar of Sokar that you did, that turned out very nicely, I think.

Thank you! had a lot of fun doing that model. I've plans for a couple of the others like it as well now, to add to an egyptian theme RPG thing we got going.

 

Working some more one my Piratey orks, I tried to make some hats (lol not a good GS'er) The tricorne hats came out pretty ok surprisingly, the eyepatch is kinda meh, and I really need to try to improve the skullcap/bandana as that's more what I'd like to do with them.

more stuffs!

 

Since I finished my new Swamp terrain board, my son and I have been very into playing on it of late. We're coming up with a lot of specialised rules and such as well, which is definitely keeping him entertained.

 

In the quest for his new army however he decided he needed a couple of Varghulfs for his Vampire Counts. The actual model is not only expensive but out atm anyways, so I promptly went digging through my bones pile and found two bugbears =D With a GW wing, they make really good Varghulfs! (Just don't tell Reaper they're moonlighting ;))

 

Here are Lefty and Righty :D

*edit*

 

I forgot! they're only basecoated atm, so they'll have a few more highlights in bit here hopefully.

 

But I wanted to also mention those bases are two from the terrain exchange box and I finally got to use them =D <3 <3 <3 I've been looking for a really good use, and voila! they're perfect

Did a little work on my Dingos for CAV

 

Not sure I'm entirely done yet, but they're pretty close I think!

The mold lines are driving me crazy but I just can't seem to get those final bits off. I stopped trying because I was just digging too much into the bones itself even on the flat bits :(

Woah I've been very bad about keeping this up o.O

 

Anyway, after being sick for almost all of January (literally, it sucked.) I finally am feeling better and able to pick up my paint brush again... or at least my exacto in this case.

I'm back to working on my  Ork army a bit, between spates of working on our RPG figures and my son's necrons.

I have more piratey stuffs to do but for now I'm trying to finish a battlewagon I started scratchbuilding last year and basically just left sitting on my desk til now.

Forgot!

 

I also pulled out these little guys for our RPG campaign. They're just basecoated sadly, I'm really not sure how to highlight them. I made their skin blue, because I wanted to do something different from all the gremlin/goblins I've been working on. And it just so turns out, Mites actually DO have blue skin, how's that for happenstance? haha

 

They're really small so it's been a bit of challenge for me, but they're such a cool model

 

(This is an old pic, I've not quite got a current one yet And sorry it's quite dark)

 

Any pointers on blue skin highlights, hit me up!

Thanks Chaoswolf :D it's being quite a lot of fun, hoping to get it done this month actually.

 

I also got the kids' figures in and got them started painting them - they got to play with the Figure Finder on Reaper's main page and had a lot of fun. They were trying to match their ideas of what their characters for our RPG look like!

 

Now they are painting them :P

 

I tried not to give them too much advice - I have teenagers, they don't like to listen anyway. So far we're pretty much doing just a basic basecoat, a wash and a dry brush. I may help with highlights a bit, because they're either not interested or too worried about messing their figure up. I'm hoping at least this will give them some confidence!

Left to Right:

My youngest's Monk; my middle boy's Svartalfr (a dusky elf that's apparently a Faerie in Pathfinder universe) "Runr Svartrinn"; my oldest's Sorceress

 

I told my youngest he might consider getting tattoos on his character as his power grows, so we can slowly add them to the mini.

Cool. Tattoos or Scarring are something any Martial Artist could get fairly easily and it makes a good story to tell. I played a Half-Orc Monk in one game that lost his Right hand early on and had to have an expensive and slightly dangerous Magic Ritual done to replace it. He ended up with some nasty Demon Lord's Right Hand and became Target Number One for That Guy! The Bright side was it gave thog a really cool thing where he could basically just touch some creature with his new right hand and just make it wither away taking massive amounts of damage every round until it managed save against it or die trying! It also gave them penalties to that fist couple saves it made, too, so that was a a rather difficult thing to do. The only problem was it would happen to ANYONE that the right hand touched. Thog did manage to trick a Shapeshifted Dragon into shaking his hand by playing off as "okay we are going to fight anyways but lets at least make it a fair fight and do the sporting thing and shake on it." And of course offered the Right Hand of Doom to the dragon. :p

 

But anywho, that is just one potential Story that a monk type might have. But an example or two can often stoke the creative fires.

Exactly Generic Fighter! I think they're going to find it fun, once they get going a bit more. Atm they're all pretty much doing their own thing (IG as well)

My #1 son has worked on his mini a bit more. He's doing some of teh smaller bits as metal. He wants most of the rest to be bone, which is apporpriate for his necromancer.

 

 

post-14692-0-49827400-1487963336_thumb.jpg

 

#3 son, always one to do things his own way, went ahead and painted the kilt as leather (that's reapers bloodstain red, my absolutely favorite of favorites) And we talked about doing the metals.

 

I'm trying to teach them a bit more about thinning (I have a lot of GW paints still)

 

But look at that skin! Reaper causasian (sp) skin tone one of the HD paints - excellent excellent coverage. Perfect for newbs!

      I picked this figure because I like it but don't have strong attachment to it. The face turned out a bit mushy, but eh, s'ok. OSL was a "hmm, it should be there". Skin tones are Reaper vampiric and dusky triads. Most of the rest of the figure is with Kimera Kolors which are crazy heavy pigments; this figure was an experiment in learning how to use them. 
       
      Photo is... so so. Didn't have ability to set up proper station so this'll have to do for now.

      A good friend gave me this out-of-production Tomb King for my birthday last month; it is a fabulously detailed sculpt, with vulture motifs and fancy collars and greaves. My Google-fu is weak, so I don't know its exact designation beyond "Tomb King on foot," but you might know better! 



      I decided to give him a monogrammed cartouche on his tattered robe; I had looked up Neferkasokar for a Call of Cthulhu game previously. 



      I wasn't sure what to make of the tattered stitched-together sheets on his kilt and shield, so I decided they would be papyri with apotropaic ensorcellments and spells. 



      And while I was on the subject, I gave a touch-up to some of the other mummies and ushabtis I'd previously painted.

      My husband and I are about to join a campaign to play through the Curse of Strahd adventure for 5e.  My husband is playing as a half-orc sorcerer and I am a human fighter.  We decided to go with 03879: Gon'Tarr Orc Shaman and 14604: Joeliyn Sister of the Blade as our respective PC minis.  They will be the third and fourth minis I have ever painted, the other two being from one of the Learn to Paint kits.
       
      My mini hasn't arrived yet but my husband's has so I've made a little progress on him.  I cleaned him up, glued to a square base, used some green stuff to smooth out his integrated base, primed him, and put some of the base coat colors down.  I've used all Reaper paints so far - their white primer along with Leather Brown for the leather bits, Harvest Brown for the wood, and a hobbled together mix of Camouflage Green, Military Green, and Warrior Flesh for the skin. 
       

       

       
      I plan on doing a base coat of all the colors first to make sure we are both happy with the choices before moving onto washes and highlighting.  My shipment with my mini along with some bone colored paints that I need for Gon'Tarr's skull accessories should be here tomorrow!

      Fantasy Grounds Unity is the name of the upcoming version of our virtual tabletop software, Fantasy Grounds. It's been completely rebuilt from the ground up in Unity. Read on to find out what this all means and why we are excited for this project.
      Fantasy Grounds is a popular system for playing a host of different roleplaying games online.  It is used by more than 130,000 gamers worldwide to connect and play popular games such as Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder, Savage Worlds, Call of Cthulhu, and more.  This type of program is commonly referred to as a virtual tabletop, or VTT, due to their ability to emulate various part of an RPG session in a digital form.
      What makes Fantasy Grounds different than competitors is how we expose character sheets and automate large portions of gameplay specifically for each system we support.  This is done through rulesets.  Your experience playing Deadlands Reloaded will differ from D&D and will be unique to that environment, contain custom graphics, character sheets, and automation specific to that game system.  
      One feature shared across most game systems is maps.  Some may use hexes while others use square grids and some may not use grids at all.  Facing is important in some and less so in others.  While FG has featured maps for many years, they have been primarily focused as reproductions of maps in existing adventure modules from our many licensed publishers. We believe that we can enhance these to provide dynamic line of sight, fog of war, and even map building support with painting and tiles.
      What you get for backing this project will be a license for Fantasy Grounds Unity (or FGU). This new game engine has all the great features of current version of Fantasy Grounds (soon to be called Fantasy Grounds Classic) along with new enhanced features. 
      Original Features Supported:
      Multiplayer support for playing tabletop games of Dungeons & Dragons (2E, 3.5E, 4E and 5E), Pathfinder RPG 1, Pathfinder RPG 2, Starfinder. Built-in content for D&D 3.5E, 5E and Pathfinder 1 Officially licensed add-on content available for D&D, D&D Classics (2E), Pathfinder, Starfinder, Savage Worlds, Call of Cthulhu, Basic Roleplaying, Castles & Crusades, Mutants & Masterminds, 13th Age, W.O.I.N., Traveller, and Rolemaster Classic Generic system support through our CoreRPG ruleset Brilliant Campaign Management Integrated character sheets with lots of automation built in for playing and leveling (depending on ruleset and content owned) Combat Tracking 3D dice Fantasy Grounds Unity Enhanced Features Include:
      64-bit support to allow for more content (quality and quantity) Native support for Mac, Linux and Windows PC Network lobby for easy hosting and joining of games (no port forwarding required) Tile based map building Enhanced Drawing Tools Additional Dice Macros support A new FGU only skin Dynamic Line of Sight with enhanced toggle blockers Paint with images, such as walls Animated image effects Backward compatibility with all existing campaigns and DLC from FGC In addition to these features, we are now poised to add even greater functionality going forward. We have lots of ideas for new features and this rebuilt engine will make it easier for us reach those goals and deliver consistent updates for free. 
      Tile based Map Building
      Dynamic Line of Sight (LOS) and Fog of War (FOW)
      Map Fx Layers
      We have already devoted over 4 years and 10,000 developer hours to this project. Any funds raised will help us push it over the edge and begin work on new features and functionality. If the project does exceptionally well, this may even allow us to add even more resources to the team.
      We have over 1200 existing DLC and add-ons. Our goal is to prioritize these by popularity and work on enhancing as many of these as we can. Without enhancements, they will continue to function as they always have in Fantasy Grounds Classic. You will be able to add dynamic line of sight to maps and begin using the new features straight away. As we work through this large back catalog of DLC, we will do all the enhancement and upgrade work for you so you can just load it up and begin using the advanced features without having to define any Line of Sight blockers yourself.

      Let's see if I can finish one of these for a change...  Of course I neglected to take good pictures of the early steps... 
       
      Mossbeard assembled, "primed" with Sepia Liner, which after a year was kinda gloopy...  Thinned with a little airbrush thinner, it went on fine though and gave really good coverage and gave the figure a nice brown on top of the grey bones.  The green then got an overbrush with Jungle Mist and then a wash of Vallejo green wash.  The brown got a wash of Vallejo dark Grey Wash and some spots with Vallejo Rush Wash.  I've since started with a over/dry-brush of Wolf Grey over the wood.  Torso, head and one arm done.  He's a big one! 
       

       
      Thanks for looking.
