Unfurl the mainsails and weigh anchor! Finally got around to showing off this fantastic pirate captain mini. Though I've collected quite a few pirate minis in preparation for a nautical D&D campaign, this model was the first I have painted outside of the LTP Kit. I felt he was missing something pretty important so I sculpted a hat for him. Pretty happy with the result. You can see more about how I painted him and my other nautical-themed minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.
I am most proud of the jacket and sleeves which I wanted to appear as worn leather. I think I was successful. I look forward to painting up a crew for this captain. Recently discovered a few pirate crews from Warmachine that are calling my name.
Another tabletop lady - tried stronger source lighting and focused on trying to smoothly blend the very pale skin. Also managed to make a reasonable base with the greenstuff roller this time - so overall happy to try these things out on her, including the flowers.
Well, I'm back in lockdown. Full, nothing open, don't leave your house, furloughed lockdown. Fortunately, Reaper have started the Reaper Challenge League, which coincides nicely with me having a lot of extra painting time. I'm already in a duo and trio for the league with @Thoramel, @Pochiand @Evilhalfling, but the Fire or Ice category really intrigued me. I love doing fire dragons so I almost started on Narthrax, but then I remembered that I've got a Roc from Bones 4 that I'd always wanted to do as a phoenix. So why not kill two birds with one stone(or roc)?
I'd forgotten just how big this 'mini' was that's a 1cm grid on the cutting mat.
Nevertheless, I started under the watchful eye of my painting assistant
First up, a decent coat of Pure Black
Onto the horror, picking out the details with Garnet Red. This took forever, and almost broke one of my old brushes.
I started brightening the feathers with Brilliant Red, you can see how much difference it makes in the lower wing.
....and both upper wings are highlighted. All I have to do now is apply the red to the undersides of the wings, body and head of the birdie. Shouldn't take too long!
I may have started on Narthrax too.... there's only so much red one person can take!
Thanks for looking everyone. It's been a bit of a slog so far, but it should get easier from now on.
Hi everyone. Got a couple more demons for you today. This is a pair of Bones Fly Demons for use as Chasme in D&D. These guys could also serve double duty as Giant Flies for Rangers of Shadow Deep.
More Below the Spoiler:
Feel free to check out more of my demons and devils in my Blood War project HERE.
If anyone has any leads on other interesting giant fly minis please share them, as I've been finding it difficult to find good models for RoSD.
Also, how do you paint insect wings? They're such a unique feature in the animal kingdom and I'd love to see how you go about it?
My secret Sophie is winging its way to its recipient as I write this and may even arrive before the new year!
I have been practicing a technique shown to me by @Mocha and have produced. Number of these this year so its only fitting that my SS be one of them.
The present is actually a 6 sided die from dice jail for too many 1's so for its trouble it has been incarcerated in greenstuff wrapping paper!
I modified Rocky a little bit to flatten his wings to more of a waiting position.
As for the story, Rocky has been asked to wait for his present and he intends to make sure it does not get away!
I enjoyed making the little bow much more than I should have but it was a lot of fun. The Rocky series is great. The eyes are just large enough to get some real detail into without overwhelming the mini and ever part of the mini is accessible to paint!
I hope his recipient likes him and that he reminds everyone that good things will come with a little bit of patience
