Well, I finally got to a point on these where it would be worth it to post. These are my major projects that I will be working on for the next few months and all four are planned ReaperCon entries. Right now there is not much to see as they are just at the primer stage but the bases are built and also ready for paint. So from left to right we have the Dark Elf Assassin from Scale 75, Tarko from Scale 75's Fallen Frontiers line, Dark Sword's Wood Elf Warrior, and Reaper's own Crimson Herald.

 

Please excuse the blurry pics, I am cleaning my apartment and this was the best place to take pics.

Some REALLY cool pieces here, I can't wait to see how you paint them all up!!

 

Thanks! I will have further details later regarding the color schemes but as a little teaser, a couple may not be what you expect. ::D:

Basing & prepping minis is a stage in the process that I LOVE doing...I do a white over black base coat that looks to be very similar to your approach. SO I love what you have done thus far with your treasure trove of ubercool minis. Enjoy the rest of the process!

Yeah, I love basing, prepping not so much. Usually I have the base planned before I even decide what to do with the mini but I did have difficultly with the Dark Sword Elf and the Crimson Herald this time. For the Elf, I did not want to do a typical foresty base for her mostly because I did not want to do a typical paint job on her. Once I figured out the paint scheme, the basing fell into place. For the Crimson Herald, I just had him and some skulls on the resin base which is a Town Square with steps base from Secret Weapon. While I liked the base, it seemed to be missing something but I was not sure what. I contemplated water effects but was not feeling it. One flash of inspiration later, I added the dirt and stumps and now it is perfect for me.

Been working on other things at the moment but I have done some time with Tarko. His skin is mostly done, just a few minor tweaks and I have gotten color down on his armor. He was a little camera shy and so the photo does not do him justice. I am really happy with the contrast which did not show up well in the photo.

Wonderful work. I am absolutely looking forward to seeing them finished.

 

Thanks! Same here, hopefully I can get them all finished in time. :unsure: Luckily I am off for a few days next week and will try to get a lot done during that time.

I'll be waiting. I mean it. Exactly in this position in front of my PC. Like Sgt. Murtaugh on his toilet. All week long. Challenge accepted :-D

I will try to not keep you waiting too long. I do know one of the days will be dedicated to building the bases for my Open entry and my two Diorama entries. I also have to put together a desk for my airbrush set up. So much to do and so little time.

Been slowly working on things. Tarko's skin and eyes are done and I have been working on the elf.

      I painted most of these figures quickly or experiment when I did so. The exception is the reaper figure. I didn't really paint his face with too much detail, you can't see it due to the hat and what I did paint is sufficient (white eyes, basic colour variation on skin).

      They look better in person (I swear, the light makes the skin look washed out more than it is, plus the hair has darker shadows.)

       
      Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.

      This is my first mini painting, just finished it tonight. I have a lot to learn, especially the correct way to dry brush. But I followed a Reaper paint kit on the steps for their minis and this is what I came up with.
       
      Once I get the hang of the minis themselves I'd like to learn to make custom bases, this one just looks awful as is.
       
      For some reason I can't get the picture to show the color true either, it's a much more grayish blue than this bright color that is shown.
       
      All in all, I'm pleased with its turn out.

      Pulled this guy out of the current round of the Box of Goodwill and painted him up over the course of two evenings. 
       

       

       

       
      I apologize for the low quality photos, but I've had such low drive to get pictures taken lately that I just wanted to break the ice and get the ball rolling.

      Just painted a few figures.
      First up is an Alligator from Wizkids.
      His base is just under 5cm in diameter

       
      Then some sort of larva, which I like to think of as a kind of "baby mothra" - also from wizkids.
      It's coloring is based (roughly) off a real-life caterpillar.

       
      Lastly, a couple of Cave Worms (Giant Leeches, #44031, Reaper).
