Pingo's 2018 Roundup of Painted Figures (Picture intensive)

Recommended Posts

Beautiful stuff! That vampire in the emerald green is lovely in a very "Corpse Bride" sort of way. Good diverse crew; I especially like that big fellow from Hasslefree, Astrid Berger, and the Braid Dwarf.

Wonderful collection, you were productive last year!

I love the vampires since they are among my favorite monsters, but my favorite mini you painted so far is the one on the bottom row, second from the right.

The guy in the red trenchcoat, he looks really bad elf.!

I forgot to mention, but the sharp-eyed may have noticed that I paint shadows on the figures' bases ... but not for the vampires.

 

As summer progressed my thoughts turned to outer space, and somewhat more heroic venues. But world events were also wearing me down and I posted fewer and fewer Show Off threads. There are some here I've never shown on the forums before.

 

July-September

Spoiler

... which is not to say I couldn't manage one more vampire. This is Reaper's magnificent Monique Denoir, sandwiched between two old school figures of an elf ranger and a sorceress from Das Schwarze Auge, Germany's answer to Dungeons and Dragons. The dwarf is Hatherly, from Hasslefree.

I'm not sure I ever posted WIP or Show Off threads for some of these. These are four wonderful outer space ladies from Hasslefree and Reaper's Meyanda, Android Priestess, painted up as a Jadeborn for Exalted.

Two more space paramilitary ladies from Hasslefree and, er, some classic space marines from Games Workshop. What can I say, they were a special request.

Three space-dwarf fighters from Hasslefree, and a dwarf magic user from Stonehaven.

Another terrestrial dwarf, from Reaper, an agent and an intrepid reporter superhero's romantic interest, both from RAFM, and two Reaper cultists because we needed some more obvious baddies.

My autumnal painting slowed down, partly because of the heaviness of world events and partly because several other projects, including some oil portraits and gearing up to produce art videos, took up a lot of my time. So there are only a few finished miniatures here.

 

October-December

Spoiler

I finished the last of the seven (yes) dwarves I had meant to do for the year, a Tre Manor druid offered by Hasslefree. Also Reaper's rather tragic Drowned Spirit, two fire hydrant pieces of terrain from Ainsty Castings, and a "witch" from Bad Squiddo who I thought would do well as Susan Sto Helit from the Discworld.

The final figures for 2018 were a somewhat rushed job on the Bones version of Reaper's wonderful Vandorendra, Snake Demon, and a steampunk gadgeteer half-orc from Stonehaven.

Enjoy!

That is a MOST IMPRESSIVE array of BEAUTIFULLY painted creations, each with a character all their own, & each done in your own unique style. VERY WELL DONE!

That touch with the shadows is genius. I'm particularly a fan of that kneeling two-pistol Space Dwarf lady,  the RAFM ladies, Susan, and the Drowned Spirit. Like the cultists, too--you don't see too many evil cultists in red and yellow. A refreshing change from purples and blacks and greens.

I'm working (s l o w l y) on that Stonehaven mechanorc myself! Great job on the patina.

      Well, I've gone and done it. I got a YouTube channel and have started making a series of videos on matters of paint and painting.
       
      Okay, I say "series of videos" all grandly, but at the moment it's one video and a planned syllabus. But I have more planned!
       
      This is pretty much my first video ever. I was helped a great deal by my family members who have more experience in this.
       
      The first video is a paint comparison, looking at one of the new Liquitex Acrylic Gouache paints (Quinacridone Magenta, PR122) and considering its suitability for miniatures painting.
       
      Enjoy!

      This is the Reaper Bones 77371 Basilisk sculpted by Julie Guthrie. It's quite small - about the size of a large dog, with a wonderfully grouchy visage.
       
      I painted it up fairly quickly to illustrate a video about how yellow and black can be mixed to make greens. This was an example of the less vivid greens (For a really vivid yellow-and-black green, see my She-Hulk Show-Off thread). All the colors on the critter were mixed just from yellow (mostly Yellow Ochre, but also a little Hansa Yellow), black, and white.
       
      The video is here, if anyone cares to watch it.

      This is Reaper's magnificent 50212 "Incredible Woman," sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
       
      She's a great figure that can be painted up like a lot of (tall - she's a big one) women superheroes. Wonder Woman is on my wish list, and maybe Captain Marvel one day.
       
      This version is Marvel's She-Hulk from her classic days as one of the Fantastic Four, replacing Ben Grimm for a time.
       
      As a materials and techniques note, I didn't use any green or blue pigments in her skin. It's all mixed from yellow and black. This was partly to prove a point and is kind of central in the art video I posted on YouTube last week: Yellow and Black Make Green.
       
      Enjoy!

      This miniature is 15503C Nyamaunir Piratin, a catgirl pirate from Das Schwarze Auge (The Dark Eye, Germany's 1980s answer to Dungeons and Dragons). She's a little Old School and a little short even for that. I like that she looks like a cat who is a person in sensible pirating clothes.
       

       

       
        
       
        
       
        
       
      There was a WIP thread, but it didn't get very far.
