My husband and I are about to join a campaign to play through the Curse of Strahd adventure for 5e. My husband is playing as a half-orc sorcerer and I am a human fighter. We decided to go with 03879: Gon'Tarr Orc Shaman and 14604: Joeliyn Sister of the Blade as our respective PC minis. They will be the third and fourth minis I have ever painted, the other two being from one of the Learn to Paint kits.
My mini hasn't arrived yet but my husband's has so I've made a little progress on him. I cleaned him up, glued to a square base, used some green stuff to smooth out his integrated base, primed him, and put some of the base coat colors down. I've used all Reaper paints so far - their white primer along with Leather Brown for the leather bits, Harvest Brown for the wood, and a hobbled together mix of Camouflage Green, Military Green, and Warrior Flesh for the skin.
I plan on doing a base coat of all the colors first to make sure we are both happy with the choices before moving onto washes and highlighting. My shipment with my mini along with some bone colored paints that I need for Gon'Tarr's skull accessories should be here tomorrow!
Let's see if I can finish one of these for a change... Of course I neglected to take good pictures of the early steps...
Mossbeard assembled, "primed" with Sepia Liner, which after a year was kinda gloopy... Thinned with a little airbrush thinner, it went on fine though and gave really good coverage and gave the figure a nice brown on top of the grey bones. The green then got an overbrush with Jungle Mist and then a wash of Vallejo green wash. The brown got a wash of Vallejo dark Grey Wash and some spots with Vallejo Rush Wash. I've since started with a over/dry-brush of Wolf Grey over the wood. Torso, head and one arm done. He's a big one!
Thanks for looking.
I can't believe I haven't posted anything here since October. Well I managed to finishes some Zombicide mini's back in February. Camera went and broke on me so I've been procrastinating on taking show offs with my cellphone. But I decided I might as well.
Here is my Grom from Zombicide. He's was a promotional figure with I got with the Kickstarter. He was painted up to be a gaming piece. I tried to keep to the art work somewhat.
Thanks for any C&C you feel to give.
Good day, i have been painting for a little while, but recently i have tried to push myself further... this is my second mini to do for LGS painting contest (i won the first one they did) .... have about a week left to finish him. so i am planning a little more highlights and more work on the weapons....
if it wasn't for a local friend i would still be painting in blocked colors and calling it done, but he keeps pushing me to try more hah!
i am open for input and criticism on him... :)
Well, awhile ago I started making some terrain for my Frostgrave Dark Alchemy solo mini campaign. Longish story....Then squirrels happened. I then decided not to wait to finish my terrain, and just go with what I had made and not painted. I'll nether confirm nor deny that I also used Lincoln Logs to make wall to fill out that first board (and there are no picture left to prove it). That round went well. I then managed to finish up building the hirst arts wizard tower in a ruined form. Next round went way worse... TPK. You take 4 character and your wizard or apprentice. They all got taken out by a series of bad dice rolls. The bad dice roll continued and I failed all my survival rolls for the characters in that mission. Well I decided I really wanted to finish this piece so here is a thread showing the before painting it.
Here is some shots of built with my now deceased WIzard, who is roughly the same size as Sir Forscale.
