Voting here is a very hard task, because they are all cool, but I actually I also vote for Lady Death because the whole scene you built up looks for me very Tim Burton style (which I love) and this Lady Death matches simply too well with the whole scene. Good luck in finding the sculpt somewhere.

 

Concerning the paintjobs and figures in the beginning of this thread: Hey it seems we both have got a pretty similar taste in sculpts. A lot of what you have painted here was also on my desk a couple of years ago and some are still unpainted like the Harpy by Freebooter for example. I like them and concerning the shading and highlighting and such we are working at this point already. For me a miniature is already cool if the basecolours are applied in a clean way, because this looks already good. Additional work makes it better, good, amazing, incredible, breathtaking. Depending on what painting level one wishes to reach. This normally happens by itself with time and so let the way unfold in its own pace.

Edited the number of votes.

Oh about finding the sculpt?

These I already have!

They are all very cool, but I think skull face would look coolest with your current paint style.

 

Edited, she's winning.

 

Hm...what is my painting style in this case?

What do people expect?

 

If she is the chosen one, then will she be painted with a plain skull or a dias de muerta face?

It seems Lady Death in a Sugarskull version is the winner.

 

But before she can claim victory..

I got a message!

 

@Mad Jack is sending me one of these.

She will definitely get painted anyway, but maybe you guys want to vote for her?

I would go with whichever mini you view as the easiest to paint of the group & save the hard ones for later when you have a feel for the minis.

My friends who raised French Napoleonics tended to paint the Old Guard first, making their elites the worst painted unit in the army.

I hear you!

I think I can manage either of them, I love painting evil ladies especially vampires/necromancers.

 

They will all get paint sooner or later, I was just wondering who would look best in front of that crypt and interacting with some death hounds.

As for those death hounds, these are the Bones version, I also have a few of the very very old Citadel metal Chaos Hounds. The 80's style ones.

I could also use those or a mix.

Assembled the crypt and added some steps.

 

The gaps will be filled later and there will be moss and stuff like that.

      Presenting Amiri, she's an Iconic Barbarian from Reapers Pathfinder line.
       
      Had this one a little while, but all the fiddly bits kept putting me off (and I normally like fiddly minis), she turned out to be super fun to paint though.
       
      As always any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      So this is my take at painting Na'Kaat
      My firend uses this mini as a pc in our dnd campaign. The axe that comes with the mini felt too small to her so I swapped it with the two handed axe from 03197: Thelgar Halfblood, Half Orc Barbarian.
       
      All in all this was one was nice to paint and is really nice to look at after  Hope you like it too!

      EDIT - This is now going to be somewhere I dump all my Reaper projects while (hopefully) not causing chaos by misusing the Show Off section. I'll pop finished miniatures that are individually worth looking at over there, too.
       
      My first post on the Reaper Forum, so please be nice! 
       
      Not 100% sure where to post this as it falls into several categories. but here it is anyway - my Reaper Bones Hill Giant "Tribe" and their hillside display base. I posted these in my regular Warhammer forum but they are too far removed from WFB to gain much interest, so I thought I'd share them here in their "proper" home.
       
      I've always painted miniatures with the "excuse" that they will be used to play games with, whether that be D&D or Warhammer or anything in between, so my emphasis is on table-ready minis rather than masterpieces. This is one of the first projects I've done without a clear gaming purpose, but because I'm a gamer at heart I still needed to put everything on individual bases for two reasons -
      1 - "just in case" a gaming use comes up
      2 - because gaming bases excuses a gaming paint job!
       
      I decided on hex bases because I liked the way they tessellate
       
      The paint scheme, choice of pets and landscape are inspired by my AD&D days, I'm constantly trying to recapture my youth! (Glad to say that Reaper Bones have finally made this sort of project practical and affordable, and I hope to follow it with similar projects using the other trad D&D Giant races.)
       

       
      All 11 miniatures used (and the 11th is very hard to spot in these two pictures!) are from Reaper, mostly Bones. There are a few relatively simple conversions, mostly so I could use two pairs of giants without them being identical.
      The major scenic elements (trees and rocks) are made from errr real trees and real rocks, while almost all of the greenery is from a range of suppliers (Citadel, Army Painter and so on)
      I tried to position all of the models so that they are focused on something located just in front of the scene - presumably, a party of hostile adventurers!
       
      I don't want to drown people in images, but if there is interest I can post individual pictures of each giant and some WIP pictures of the project, as well as the identity of that 11th miniature...

      The biggest model I've ever painted, I worked on it in sections and then assembled it onto the base when finished. I made very minor modifications to Kalarax herself, mostly inserting a lot of brass rods to support joints, and using hot water to bend the tail around onto the base (which is 25 cm square!) There was a lot more work on the base, using rocks, grit and sand to meld the Bones "ruined temple" into a larger scene with common elements from my Vampire army (see sig below)
       
      You may know the story of why the model is so big - apparently a communications error meant that it is twice the size it was ever meant to be? Because of this, I removed odd-sized base details like huge skulls and dinner plate coins and replaced them with "in-scale" objects like dozens and dozens of resin skulls as seen in the close up.
       
      My "huge bony miniature" recipe is:
      One can of Army Painter Undead Bone spray paint
      A big pot of GW Agrax Earthshade (or similar brown wash)
      A pot of Citadel Dry Tyrant Skull
      A large flat drybrush
       
      Let the model to the work! You can also use this to paint large numbers of smaller skeletons, of course.

      I found it really hard to light and photograph such a tall model, I'll have to get him off his shelf and try and take better pictures at some point in the future. I chose the bright red tongue to tie in with the reddish muscle and the red roses (which are a theme of my Warhammer Vampire project) as a spot colour.
