I painted Goremaw the Great Worm up as a fire-infused purple worm for a unique creature from the Pathfinder setting of Galorion. I am running the Curse of the Crimson Throne AP in D&D 3.5, and this creature will show up in my game tonight. It is my first finished creature miniature (I have done some terrain previously), and being a perfectionist, I put in 48 hours of work on him (lots of nooks and crannies, and I don't have an airbrush).
I finished him last night, reaching the "good enough" state, as time didn't allow me to put off varnishing him any further.
I started posting a WIP thread when I started working on him several months ago. Check it out HERE.
Here are my Cindermaw glamor shots.
Here is the start of pathfinder red, which I’ll be doing as a Sapphire dragon, similar to what i did with the Grenadier Red Dragon II (which I did as a Ruby dragon) a while ago.
Just base colors here; dark blue/black wash over his entire body, earth wash over the sand, and white statue. I really like how the blue and brown look together. The brown will be lightened up to sand, and the blue will end up a more saturated dark blue. I hope those colors will still look good together...
For a while I've been meaning to do a couple of character minis up, but I've been avoiding it since people are hard. Also, I don't have that many character minis, honestly - I turned most of them into melt last Reapercon to get more monsters! But I do need to fill out more general character minis, both to give me more options for one-shots, and to lend to my players.
First off, I decided to do a fire sorceress, since that's a common enough thing to come up. Convinently, I have a faction of Phoenix-worshipers in my campaign world, so there's not a bad chance she'll see use as an NPC at some point, too...
I used Bobby Jackson's great Courtesan mini, a nice simple figure with lots of great lines!
I'm really pleased with how she turned out, especially her face! I'm trying a new technique for eyes, and while it needs a little fine-tuning, I think it came out really good. They look wonkier in the pictures than IRL, and I got them both looking in the right direction, which I'm very pleased with. I tried to use the same effects as for sheer cloth to give it the effect of this iridescent cloth I once had, that shifted from red-orange to a shimmering gold, and I think it came out well - certainly bright enough! I used a pale blue for her highlights, and her eyes, the same color for both - I wanted to give a little contrast to her cloths and warm skintone.
Next up, Horace "Action" Jackson. I love this figure's afro - I wish there were more figures with that style of hair, especially in fantasy.
I'm pretty pleased with how he came out! I based his cloths on a bard I painted ages ago. He's going to be a CoC character I play from time to time - a FBI undercover cop in the mid-1900s. The pictures make it obvious I need to go over his hair again, I can't see the irregular bits IRL. Very pleased with his eyes, though - he's got great focus down his sights!
And to tease what I'll be finishing up tomorrow, the Pathfinder Venture Captain as a different, more specific fire mage:
I decided to do her like a meteor, with strong black sections to break up a ombre from red to nova-white. The dress is just about finished - just the head and arms, and a few more details, to finish up tomorrow, and then she'll be all set.
At some point, I'll get these all set up and based, and probably post them again at the end of the month or in February as part of a larger group-shot of everybody I do in the next few weeks - I'm planning to really clear out my PC minis as best I can, since I did so many minis in December that it basically hit my goal for three months in one.
Painted her to be a vampiric white witch! The Violet Witch is an Elvin protector to the forests. Not quick to trust most, and will kill as quick as wolfsbane if prompted.
For some reason the metal around the Jewel on her staff is showing up hardcore blue. I only lightly dusted the inner area, but all that metal is showing up as blue in pictures compared to in person. And I have no clue why. Lol

#3: Sexy lady on a grave
The bared-shoulder-come-hither-look in a tight formfitting dress has to be a vampire, don't you think? Why else would she be standing on a grave looking all alluring?
I painted the dress with Green Stuff World Metalcolor Cæsar Red (a metallic deep red) and Reaper Rose Gold, a metallic pink. I find these colours work very well together.
Rose gold is not available at retail (yet). I won the Rose Gold on the Halloween Twitch stream lottery draw together with three other paints and some halloween-themed minis (Yay! I actually won something for once! And I did not already have the minis! Double yay!) and what better way to try it out than on a shiny, clingy, silk dress?
The provided grave-base fit perfectly on a 30mm lipped base.
