That's a seriously badass looking mini! I'm not sure I'd want to be in the same party as him haha

 

How did you make the tome? Is it done in freehand? (Is it the Necronomicon?)

Hehe, I can see your point. :D

 

And it is indeed the Necronomicon! 

It was made by grabbing some art online, Adjusted and resized in photoshop, then printed on regular paper on my trusty old ink printer. I am sadly quite horrible at freehand. I believe I spent about an hour on this mini, with drying times.

Arma Verata Nechumblehumble! It may or may not be the Necronomicon, but that is a WONDERFULLY painted tome. The miniature toting it is equally WONDERFUL...OUTSTANDING brushwork, converting, & color selection. VERY WELL DONE!

Most excellent. The idea to simply print a design out and glue it on the book is indeed genius. I may steal this idea. Overall the miniature came out well. I could see that adding a bit more depth to the cloak would improve it further, maybe a dark orange, almost brown wash?

Of course, feel free! :) It's the same thing I've done with the Enforcers I posted last year.

 

There are a lot of things that would improve this paintjob. It was done in about 60 minutes with drying times. Most are for the tabletop, so I don't spend much time on them. This one was two-three passes of drybrushing over a light brown spray base. Then weathered with sepia and agrax.

      I took this idea directly from DMGInfo and put a couple small twists to it based on what my home game players might like. Plus, I think they make pretty cool props for a dungeon that might be a library or wizard tower or whatever. It's an experiment, so the execution is a little sloppy on some of them, but I learned a lot so if I ever decide to do a new set (which I likely will) I can take what I learned to make a much better finished product. 
       
      I started with craft sticks(popsicle sticks) cut into 1cm x 7mm pieces and used a cereal box for the book covers. On some of them, I cut up bits of the cereal box to add dimension. Superglue to keep it all together. 

       

       

       

       
      In hindsight the cereal box I used was pretty cheap and wanted to warp and split into layers. Next time I may use a thin chipboard, or card stock.
       
       
       

       
      Here they are all primed up, ready for paint. 
       

       

      Some of the designs are just decorative, while others are leather straps and buckles that bind the whole book, metallic corners to help "protect" the covers' corners, etc.

       
      I apologize for the dreadful lighting on these. I used the same acrylic paints I use on my minis. Next time I'll use craft paint because craft paints are thicker and go on thicker, which you definitely want. Spent a lot of time waiting for layers to dry. 
       
      I used metallics for the raised bits on the finished ones above and I am pretty happy with the first set. 
       
      The second set will have some more ambitious designs such as reptile scale book covers and:

       

      an eye sculpted out of green stuff! The more I use it, the more I love it. It allows me to add all sorts of little details to things as well as fill gaps.
       
       
      I'll post the finished shots once I get the last of them painted up. 
       
      I hope you enjoyed this and are inspired to craft your own props for your dungeons/games. Happy Crafting!

      Saw about this via Black Magic Craft.
      31 Euro shipping for rest of the world will probably rule me out. I'm not sure I can find value in 85 euro all in for books and templates. That's a lot of supplies (I dont have room for).

      It this yesterday because it gives me a nice in-between mini from my reaper eldritch demon and my Cthulhu.
      This is about 90 minutes


      Lots of inaccessible spots and texture which makes painting not fun. Will be making this shorter than planned as a result. Everything will get a flesh wash. I'll do some eyes and claws, then a medium and ink wash of the clear plastic water.

      I decided to do a quick prime of my kickstarter minis. Creatures on blue /green spectrum got grey primer, and those that are fleshier got a mix of yellow & brown primer and a drop of craft red because I had it handy.
      No idea when I can next paint. Already did a good job obscuring some details.
