Thanks everyone, for the encouraging comments! I'm new to miniature painting, and it sometimes mortifies me to see how far I have to go to get where I want. It's the darned camera that does it, lol. Things look perfectly fine until I get a real close-up of them!


It's fun, though. And addictive. :-D

Welcome, and nicely done, especially the base - very creative!


Thanks, Warlady! I love building things, so basing is one of my favorite parts of the whole process.

The colors on the bat are pretty realistic and pattern on the pillar is pretty cool. 


Thanks! I am glad you like them. :-)

OH but that is SPLENDID! The Bat Fellow is WONDERFULLY painted & BEAUTIFULLY based. He has a charmingly disgusting personality. VERY WELL DONE!


Thanks, Malefactus! I'm glad you like him. For some reason he seemed charming to me too, and I just had to paint him.

 Very realistic!


Thanks! I come from a fine art background and I'm wavering a bit between painterly realism and higher contrast. I like the look of higher contrast on minis, but I naturally fall into trying to recreate a more natural look. I'm really new to this, though, so we shall see.

Great leathery werebat, and great weathered/ruined pilar for his base.


Thank you! Glad you like him. He was tons of fun.

I love this model and you did a great work on it. Can't wait to see more of your models, welcome to the forum.


Great! I am glad to be here, and I hope to at least make the January/February challenge this time around. :-)

      I have put together a warband, mainly Reaper models, for use in Saga Age of Magic, Frostgrave, Oathmark etc. 
      The winged vampires were quite simple to paint. Primed with Israeli grey from Vallejo, then drybrushed with Rakarth flesh and Pallid Wych flesh. Then a wash of carroburg crimson and a highlight with Pallid Wych Flesh. 
      The armoured vampires are mainly crimson knights from Reaper with a couple of head swaps but mostly straight and un-kitbashed. They were primed with Vallejo red brown then I used contrast flesh tearers red and a bunch of washes for the armour. 
      I enjoyed painting these and the next step is to add some more winged vampires/succubi, and some mounted vampire knights.

      It's the perfect time of year to show off this little collection of spooky minis!

      Giant Bats 44040

      These little guys are adorable.  They're pretty simple, and it's hard to pick out details in their faces, but I think they're fantastic little minis.  Though their size clearly makes them giant bats, I can definitely see myself using them as "normal-sized" bats for Wildshape or Familiar purposes.  I specifically used the Little Brown Bat as my coloration reference.

      Harrowgate Shrine 77723
      Next up is a bit of scatter terrain.  This is one of the two models in the Harrowgate Shrines set.

      What could it be?  An ancient omen?  The gravestone for a horrific creature?  Or perhaps the beast itself is encased in stone!
      It's not the most exciting of models, but I thought it fit nicely with this little set.  I probably should have based it, but I like basing scatter pieces on flat bases and didn't have one the right size for this.  Might base it in the future.

      Werebat 77448
      And rounding out this set we have the big baddie: the werebat!

      I really like how dynamic this guy is.  Really get the sense he's about to lunge at you, or take off to the skies.  I painted him up like the giant bats.  Don't love the paintjob, but it works.  I really like how his base turned out though.  The model comes on a roughly 1" circular base, but he's pretty top heavy.  I didn't want to give him a 2" base, but I'm really starting to enjoy basing these oversized models on 40mm rounds.  Especially with that tapering rim, they fit nicely without looking out-of-scale compared to other "medium" sized creatures.

      So what's the story?  What would you use these minis for?

      I keep a blog of painted miniatures with their model number - awhile back I had painted the werebat from Kickstarter#3 model #169.  Is that intended to be 77448 which appears to be missing in the current inventory?

      I painted all my lycanthropes first. Figured I'd share. I couldn't help myself with the wereboar, and I was thinking of making a little hat for the weregator. I gar-ron-tee.

    • By Chaoswolf
      This is a speed painted repaint of an old Mage knight figure; I think it was the 'feral bloodsucker'. It looked like a werebat to me, so that's what he became. I did the figure in perhaps an hour and a half (not including basing, lotta glue and different materials there). I just painted right over the original paint job (there wasn't really much there to begin with). I did this guy while I was waiting for some green stuff to dry on a different project.
      Please let me know what you think.
