Jasper gets back to painting with some IMEF marines

Recommended Posts

Got the black bits done and a base coat on the guns.



Went back to see what wash I used on Nick's gun...seems I didn't note it.  Bad Jasper.....

I'll likely do something more with the sniper rifle than the others.  It's bigger than she is so should have some added detail beyond a wash and some highlights.

And still need to decide on what to do with the goggles (it is remarkable hard not to type google....)

Not feeling great today but managed to do a little before lunch.




Did the highlights and a dark tone wash on the guns.  I'll see if that matches Nick after lunch.  I left out the sniper as I want to do a bit more on her gun.

Came up with an idea for the goggles, think it looks ok.  Mixed MSP Ruby Red with Scale75 Black Metal and some MSP Solid Black. Added more Ruby Red to the mix for a highlight of sorts.

Bases are just base coated.  They'll get a bunch of washes to dirty them up at the end.

So the next 4 are pretty much done, just need to take one more look at the bases tomorrow when they are dry and see if I need to dirty them up more.

Here they are with Nick.


Huh, who knew?  Cleaning the lens on your phone makes the photos better.....:upside:


And while I was at it I grabbed the remaining 5 and got them all to the same level for the base coats.


Next I'll need to decide on skin tones for them and get a base down.

Been mostly working (not that I've had much time to paint this week) on my spring exchange.  But got some time to work on the last 2 while waiting for a wash to dry.


Main khaki and olive are done.


Hopefully get a couple more paint sessions in today, and hopefully spend some of that time on these guys.  Leathers and faces next I think. Hair too I suppose.

Faces and leathers done.  Black base coat touched up.  A base coat of Black Metal on all the metals but the base.

Base coat of Pig Iron on the base and the first of many washes to dirty it up.


Not likely to get too much done tomorrow, headed up to the city to see Avengers on the IMAX; that will take most of the day.

Metals are done (ish, I might touch up a couple of things after looking at the pictures.....).


Still putting washes on the bases.  Blacks still need to be done, I've been leaving those until after the metals in case the gloves get shiny by mistake.

After that I think just Torch's hair is left...

      ... is how I start each session of my Curse of Strahd campaign, before recounting my player's disastrous choices and whatever wicked thing I threw at them last time as a result.
      Although we play our game online and the campaign is drawing to a close, I decided to immortalise these characters in miniature form. I was planning to paint a Strahd for them to fight, but then, uhhh, while I was cutting the figure from the sprue, its head flew into the office and hasn't been seen since.

      Of course, I should have known, he's a vampire, he can change shape and move through walls. I'll never find him.

      But will this party be able to defeat him in our next session? Fingers crossed!
      First off - the party's secretive and somewhat paranoid rogue who goes by "Hope". Out of a traumatic fear of magic users, she dislikes being healed and shaves her head to avoid anyone scrying on her. I decided to pick Serena, Dreadmere Rogue (03873) to represent her, opting for a cloak rather than a bald head.

      Then, the party's warlock. Ira was an aspiring actor and playwright who made an arrangement with a local lawyer to benefit his career and learn a little bit of a magic. A whirlwind romance turned into a longterm relationship, but when his patron actually proposed to get married, Ira ran off on an adventure. Commitment issues, you know? But at least he has a magical book that allows him to communicate his regrets and learn new spells from his fiendish boyfriend...

      I struggled a bit to find a figure that matched the "Victorian dandy" aesthetic. No staffs or wands, but no guns or playing cards either. I was in the dark a bit, so I decided to modify Drake Whiteraven (03599), using the book that comes with Khalib, Runelord Apprentice (60098), and fashioning a dagger out of bits. Not the best 'kitbash', but it does the job.


      The party's druid is Mikal - a half-elf and the oldest member of the group. Though he started off as a loner and a hermit tending to nature, when strange creatures began emerging from sudden mist banks, he had to go take a closer look. Perhaps the real Curse of Strahd was the friends he made along the way.

      This figure is Vodelis Winterhand (04009), who I believe was a freebie sometimes last year. I modified the staff to be a spear (a magical item found in Barovia!)

      Finally, the party's cleric - Petrus. Many things in Barovia would challenge a man's faith, but Petrus has come out of it stronger and even more pious than before. 

      This is not a Reaper figure, but a sculpt from Mierce Miniatures. The scale on this one was much finer and the figure itself was obviously shorter, sculpted with more realistic proportions. I decided to place him on a rock to make him appear taller, but of course, that only made him look like he was compensating for something. (He is.)

      Another one bites the dust….😆
      One of my favorite sculpt…but in the old Bones plastic. I put a little extra into the base, otherwise it was a pretty straight forward zen of Bones quick paint job. Overall I like the scheme and it has given me ideas for when I paint my metal version. Not sure about the green face and the blue glow under the rib cage is too subtle. 

      And as an aside …..the quality of Testors Dullcoat is not nearly as good as it was a decade ago. The newer formulation continues to give me a semi gloss finish.  Oh well.

      One of two I recently finished. A favorite oldie I just gotten around to painting, I've always luv Klocke's old work.
