My husband and I just started playing in a Curse of Strahd campaign for DnD 5e yesterday. In prep for the first session, we each picked out a Reaper mini to represent our PCs and I painted them. I barely finished them in time for the session but somehow I got them ready in time! We even got to do our first battle using them, and we survived! It is my first time painting minis for a campaign so I'm glad they at least survived session 1 haha.
They were both painted with all Reaper paints, though I did use a few GW washes and a texture paint as well. These are the 3rd and 4th minis I have ever painted - I am new to the hobby - and they are the first two I have finished all the way through basing. It was a really fun learning experience! There are definitely places I can improve but they looked really good on the table!
Here's my husband's half-orc sorcerer Kron represented by Gon'Tarr Orc Shaman (I know DnD half-orcs are in the PHB as gray skinned, but my husband wanted green.) -
All the Reaper paints I used for Gon'Tarr -
And this is my human fighter Anneliese represented by Joeliyn Sister of the Blade -
And the Reaper paints used for her -
I also had a WIP thread for these two if you wanted to see some of the before shots.
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.
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... :)
Ok, Here I go starting another WIP. I had the hankering for Frostgrave only no one around who wanted to try. So I decide to finally give the Dark Alchemy solo scenarios a try. I had skeletons, rats, and a stand-in for the alchemical monstrosity. I looked around and thought, hey those WWWOZ Tin man painted up red and gold would look cool as the FIre-Flingers for the final scenarios. I also decided I only wanted to paint them as gaming pieces. I haven't really posted anything cause my camera broke, and I really haven't wanted to pick up another. So I'm starting this WIP to practice with my phone camera, as well as post here a little more often.
Here was the first of four I need for the scenario, as it stands at the moment. Photo work still in progress as well:
Unfortunately, I had a TPK in scenario 2. The scenario called for Wizard or Apprentice and 4 of soldiers for the mission. They all went down, and I rolled unbelievable less than 5 for all of them on the survival roll. I'm less than inspired to complete these guys now. but I'll carry on and hope that the apprentice can survive the final encounter with whats left of the warband when I finish.
