Thank you! I have always liked to draw, color, and have dabbled in painting both oil and acrylics on canvas. I started playing D&D and asked how to get miniatures and a friend pulled up Reaper's online store and I then discovered the forums! I think I joined the forums in May 2015. I think these forums are about the nicest place on the internet! This is my escape!

 

@DaemonDoesMinis Those are fantastic!

 

I love this thread!

It's nice to see how everyone has improved since they started. I started painting in 1988. I tought I had parted from the first model I paited back in a day but it was hiding, in ambush, at the bottom of a box. So, here it is, one of the first if not the very first miniature I painted it is a Ral Partha 03-081, Thief with longsword in ambush. It has been damaged after all the fight it had dwelling down the box of oblivion. By looking at the picture I also realised that was before I lurned anything about washes.

I probably painted 200 miniatures since then. My latest work are Dark Sword Miniatures, Critter Kingdoms DSM8035, Hamster Knight with Spear and DSM8025, Hamster Thief. For now my favorite will have to be the 02712, Eyebeast I recently painted and 03484, Karlov Diedrich the wizard I painted in feb. 2014.

You look like you started off pretty good! Dude you had dots in your eyes!

 

But yeah, your work has only become more and more impressive

@Metalchaos you've come a long way.

 

Awesome progress.

 

And even that first mini is actually pretty nice.

But your current work is stunning.

@Metalchaos Yep, like everyone else has said, your first one (even without washes) still shows the promise of what was to come.Shading on the face, EYES! You started strong and your stuff now is gorgeous!

Oooh this is a fun thread!  I started painting when I got my Bones 2 KS shipment, soooo 2015?  I am terribly, terribly slow... I've only painted a dozen or so minis since, so dont have a lot of pics to pick from (and I dont have a great photography environment too boot...) but here's the first two mini's I did in prep for my bones 2 shipment: 

 

...drybrush and black wash... never too much drybrush and black wash!  :rolleyes:

Fortunately I've finally figured out that drybrushing and black wash are NOT universally required lol...

This is a great topic! It's really fun to see how everyone has progressed. These are not really comparable since they are different scales, but still, they show a bit of a difference.

 

The first one is probably my third mini. I was super proud that I had gotten the eyes in the wizard's head and a red dot on the wand.

 

Maybe 12 years after, here is one of my latest: a bust by FeR miniatures. I hope you like them!

 

Edit: Oops, the order got swapped. Oh, well, I think you can figure out which is which...

      Over on the Ghost Archipelago thread in the Fantasy forum, I posted about a toy-elephant head I glued to a Bones Bugbear to make a creature called an Eritherean, which is featured in the Bestiary for those rules, and is essentially an elephantman.  This led to a long discussion, and the inevitable gluing of the spare Bugbearhead to the Elephant's body.
       
      It also made me realize how addictive head-swapping is, and since it was beginning to derail the Ghost Archieplago thread, I thought I'd open a new thread here for everybody to share any head-swapping projects they were doing.
       
      To see the original thread, and subsequent discussion:
       
      And here are the photos of my efforts so far:
       




       
       
      So what have you been working on!?

      so....
       
      The painting funk has lasted for 4 months, and I need to get my cranium out of my anal orifice and start painting again....
      Posted Thursday at 09:46 PM So....
       
      While on the hangouts with some folks that play 40K, we have been talking about stuff, and I went to look for a figure that I knew I had, and didn't want, that @Chaoswolf thought was cool, and found the following:

      Now this is the basis for my mechanical Obliterators that I painted way back in 2003? and brought to Reapercon last year

      where they got a silver medal in the open category
       
      Speaking with one of the judges afterwards (@dks) we discussed them, and the painting dragged them down, as I said old paintjob...
       
      Well, with my painting funk in its 4th month, I was thinking that maybe, I could re do a new one from scratch, and with all the sculpting things I have learned, as well as painting techniques, I might be able to do better...
       
      Now Reaper forbids entering the same piece twice, but this would be a reprisal of something I did years ago....
       
      Would this be legal as a new entry?
      @Heisler care to comment?
       
      George
       
      @Heisler's response
      As long as the entry is an entirely new piece and not one of those three then it would be a perfectly legal entry.
       
      My response...
      thanks @Heisler
      really hoping this will kick out the brain weasel painting funk!
       
      For some reason, I couldn't cross quote so....
       
      It's gonna be ugly for a while....
       
      the raw components:

      lots and lots of surface grinding with the Dremel tool, and sore fingers.....
       
      But hopefully, I've learne a bit about painting and sculpting since I did those guys, and this time, there will be only one....

      Hello! Long time no posting. I have been getting back into painting as a regular thing, so I hope to be here more often!
       
      Anyways. I hope I picked the correct category of the forums for this.
       
      So I have put together a group painting even during the course of Adepticon at the group hobby area. We are going to be painting a Fire Giant Queen, bones or metal. It is open to anyone and just a great way to meet other painters and see how we all interpret the same miniature.
       
      Just grab a Fire Giant Queen, prep her, and bring her. I have not signed up for any events other than the crystal brush at adepticon, so I plan on being at the hobby area alot. I'll probably have a little sign to make it easier to find those of us who are doing this together. This is a super informal, pop in and out as you can, kind of thing. Mostly just to meet other painters and have a good time.
       
      If this is not cool, I apologize.

      In an odd coincidence that I swear I had nothing to do with, the passing of George Romero coincides with my finally completing a set of 77342, Zombies, from the second Bones Kickstarter.
       
      I thought it might be nice if people painted (and shared) zombies, to honor the life of a man who changed horror movies forever.
