77008: Garrick the Bold (weapon swap) - Paint-and-take

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I finally have a functional camera (on a phone, but still), So Im going to open the vaults on my collection over the next few days and share some things that have not seen the light of day. I figured Id start with the essential Sir Forscale! I've been meaning to get a copy for years, so when I saw he was available at the Paizocon paint-and-take he was the natural choice. I had a blast meeting some forum folks in person and shaking hands with the reaper con crew.

 

I finished most of this mini that day, and the following night I fashioned up a proper base and swapped the bones sword for a nice blade from one of the weapon packs. I'm not exactly breaking new ground here, but I'm sure Ill remember this speedpaint fondly for years.

Now I have a proper Sir Forscale for future projects!

Fine paintwork, and you'd never know his weapon wasn't standard equipment.

Awesome work.

Thanks peeps!

I, too, like the blue. Dragon blue msp, with some mixed highlights, i believe.

 

I'm very particular about my basing, and over the years distinct themes have formed in my collection. Most of my good aligned humans and demihumans  (anyone "from town") have a similar motif.

      For the last three years, I've gotten to attend Origins in Ohio, and have really loved doing the Reaper Speedpaint (and even won last year). I was hoping to go and participate in the Speedpaint again this year, but I was going through the Origins 2019 event schedule and didn't see a single entry from Reaper. Is Reaper not going to be at Origins this year, or at least not hosting any events?

      Couldn't resist a Bombshell sale, and I've had my eye on Gillie here for a while. 

      Now, I'd already gotten into a Hellboy figure (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/85925-heckfella-wwwoz-lion-80058-and-rafm-hells-harbinger-raf03897/), so the next part was probably inevitable. This fishy gal is going to be a distaff counterpart to Abe Sapien. (Langdon Everett Colleen?)
      Recent posts by @Glitterwolf (loongs and ki-rin) are changing my mind on techniques, so while it is well-established that I love shiny metallic fish-people, I put on some matte layers first. 




      And then drybrushing with metallic teals and pale blues. 
      Next up: Freehanding some fishy stripes. 



      And a bit more dark blue and green wash plus some more metallic drybrushing and detailing, followed by a thin layer of 'Ardcoat. Whole process took under two hours. Room for improvement, but a good start!

      While waiting for washes to dry on an exchange fig this morning, I decided I'd try getting a decent paint job onto a fig I pulled out of the latest BoGW that @robinh let me browse through last week.
      I pulled this fig because I thought it would work well as an evil mage type in the Savage Rifts setting.  But I didn't think I'd use it for the current game, as the last encounter is tonight, before we switch over to 5th Ed for a while.
      But what the heck, I'm going to see what I can do with him anyway.

       
      Here's about 40 minutes of base coating. Robes/gloves will be dark red, tassley cloak thing will be purpley greys.  Lots of metals.
       
      Anyone able to identify him?  GW?  Warzone maybe? (Identified below.....)

      Sooo .... who else is going to Paizocon?
      That's .. erm, May 25th to 28th - so I might be a bit late asking for some of you. ^^;
       
      I know Mr. Thorne and I will be there. Don't know what all we'll be doing exactly, but I know we'll be there.

      I speed-painted this guy for an upcoming encounter because I was surprised not to have a dwarf miniature with a hammer. I really like how he came out, and how the encounter went down. So yay!
