Just a mix of some figures I'm trying to post from the last few months. It's been a long slog taking pictures, if I'm being honest - I've got all the stuff, but my phone's camera is bad and so I try to use my dads. He and I both work different days though, and it's too dark in the evening even with extra light, so I've been trying to wait for days we're both home, with mixed results. I think I've worked something out, though.
Anyways, first up is Bailey Silverbell!
She was a speedpaint, around three hours, so I'm pretty pleased with her. I based her color scheme off my favorite Flight Rising dragon, Gladyr:
Who's got some more elven art in her bio there of her, but she's a ranger's ranger, so I figured a dwarf would do as well!
Didn't spend much time on any one part of her, but I figure she's going to make a good PC/NPC one day, and I'm pretty pleased. As the one dwarf I did of the 13 I prepped for November, I'm OK with it.
Next up, a flying snake familiar I did for a fellow player in my Thursday group - very happy with how this came out!
I started with the metal baby coatl from the Warlord Familiars III set (it's in Bones, too, if you want to do the conversion yourself, but the whole pack was 1/2 off at a local comic shop) and clippered the arms off, then filed them away. They attached at odd angles, but I got them off pretty well - more time and a round file would have smoothed the job better, but I didn't want to spend too much time obsessing, and it's harder to see the rough edges IRL. Clipped away the base and then glued it to a resin "brick wall chunk" I got at Reapercon two years ago. There's some neat GS plants beneath that flock that got buried in the photos but you can still see IRL - just some mosses and stuff to blend it into the ground - and did a quick little quetzal-themed paint job to get it up to snuff.
Of course, the player has since managed to Reincarnate back to a human from his previous Yuan-ti form, so he's changing the flying snake to a centipede to put his traumatic curse behind him... but I have a bunch of those arriving from Otherworld in a few days, and Flying Snakes come up as familiars all the time in my groups, so I won't hold it against him.
And the centaur kids! These two are Reaper's Sagitarius Zodiac, a really fantastic mini that I wish they'd sell without the metal base for exactly this. I've wanted it pretty much since the first time I saw it, put off getting it, Boneyard closed down, didn't get it because the base was huge, forgot to pick them up at my first Reapercon, and finally remembered this year. Super-cute. So cute. These two are on 1" bases and they fit perfectly, they're at a great scale with Reaper's other Centaurs, and it's such a fun idea for an NPC, right? And they're so in-line with the lore for D&D centaurs, out "helping the grown-ups" with little kid-bows... I love them.
The first is painted up using some references of young Lakota women; she washed out a bit in pictures, but the hair is really a dark brown. Her body is based on the quarter-horses my neighbors own, although, rest assured, she is at least half-horse, or closer to 2/3 by volume.
The second is an elf, with silver hair and a dappled-grey body. I might revisit her at some point; I like the blue straps on the first centaur more than the tan on her, and might redo that.
I've got a third one I just found (thank goodness) that actually reminded me to post these, since I took the pics a while ago... She's going to be modded a bit, made a little older-looking, and done as an adult fallow deer centaur - a smaller variant closer to a halfling-centaur that dwells in their forests and rarely interacts with non-fae.
here are two more Partha figures I've been working on, two half-elven Rangers sculpted probably by Jeff Grace way back in the nineties. I'd actually started painting these figures years and years ago, but the eyes turned out horribly wrong on both of them, so I threw them into Pinesol. Recently though, they were sitting on my desk and I got inspired, so started painting them up. They were pretty simple paint jobs, and once again, because I'm lazy, used the same paint scheme for both of them.
And here they are together:
A new unit for my Shifting Sands Project.
Egyptian Warcats with Handler.
Handler = Reaper Egyptian Princess SKU: 03506 ( she comes with a baboon which will make an appearance later)
Black Panther is the New BONES IV Phase Cat with his tentacles removed SKU: 44042
Lion= Bones Lion SKU: 77341
The Panther with the Princess is from Ral Partha I got it from a BOGW
The Leopard is from the Companion Animals Set Bones SKU: 77216
The Nehekharan Warcat is the Reaper Elven Hunting Cat SKU: 14453
I used Vallejo Desert Sand and some Greenstuffworld Egyptian Ruins for the bases.
Hope you enjoy them.
I've got this mini in the legend of drizzt board game last december and I just hated it right off the bat. The weird pose, lack of details, undefined face, I could go on... Also, something that was quite striking about it was the lack of feminine detalis and a kind of a masculine look of the female ranger It looked to me more like a man dressed as a female ranger, and I found that quite funny and promising!
As I've thought more about it, it reminded me of Doris from "Sherk" and Okama characters from "One Piece", which I both love!
So those characters inspired me to paint Catti in a similar fashion, which I believe gave the mini much needed character. I like how it turned out and I think she will make an interesting pc or npc in our dnd campaign!
So here is the third figure from the set I was working on recently, a female fighter or ranger with staff. Nowadays on the Ral Partha's site, they just call her a fighter, but she originally belonged to a three piece blister pack of Rangers from Julie Guthrie's "All Things Dark and Dangerous" figure line.
Being she was a ranger originally, quite the opposite of the Ranger Archer I just finished a few days ago, I tried to give her a bit more natural colors. And here is then the group together, and the original image I found from an old catalogue:
So anyhow, fun figure to paint, hope you all enjoy!
