Hello there! Now it's no secret that I'm a fan of Games Workshop minis, there's two problems with this though, I can't paint armies (I've tried, I lose interest after the first few minis) so I mi

Did the little tree trunk (Red Leather/Parasite Brown), the leaves (Sick Green), the wheaty bits (Ochre Yellow) and grass (Medium Olive), drybrushed it all Ochre Yellow (added some Off-white to the mi

Thanks! Yeah, it's just white primer with brown wash, it helps me pick out the details (plus it makes them look nice on the shelf, while they wait to be painted).     Had a good pa

I'm amazed by your smooth painting style! Keep them coming!






Got his hood done (Hexed Lichen > Black Wash > Hexed Lichen > Hexed Lichen/2 brushtips of Off-white).

Made a start on his robe with a basecoat of Sick Green and a Black Wash.


Hopefully nothing will freak me out today and I can get some painting done.

Looks great!






Finished his robes with layers of Sick Green and Sick Green/Ochre Yellow plus some Bonewhite stitching.

Did his tail rings and buckles in Bronze, did some straps in Brown Leather > Brown Leather/Bonewhite, added some Olive Green to this for his knife handles and gave them all a nice Brown Wash.


Just the armour and base to go.

Painted the base Cold Grey, added some Steel Grey to pick out a couple individual paving stones, drybrushed Bonewhite, washed in Brown Wash and I'm all done:-




Balmonoth is part of a Rat Clan raiding party, preferring to be silent and stealthy, he has become surprisingly skilled at throwing knives with his tail.


Next up is the Champion.

Love the sneaky rat!


Thanks! I'm pretty happy with him.


Made a small start on the Champion:-




Did the bony bits (Iraqi Sand/Bonewhite > Brown Wash > Iraqi Sand/Bonewhite > Iraqi Sand/Bonewhite/Off-white).

Also did the remains of his gloves and boots (Red Leather > Red Leather/Bonewhite >Brown Wash, with the soles of the boots in Leather Brown).

His trophy poles were based in Red Leather, given a wash of Dry Rust and drybrushed with Orange Fire.

Two of the skulls got Cold Grey/Ghost Grey hair, the other got Leather Brown/Ochre Yellow hair, then they all got an Off-white drybrush and a Brown Wash.


Gonna start on all that armour next.

Painted his armour in Pure Black/Oily Steel, with Oily Steel highlights and a Blue Wash. Unfortunately I'd forgotten how thick my Blue Wash is, so I redid the Oily Steel and gave it a Black Wash to reclaim the shading. Still remains surprisingly blue.

Then I did the decorations (Brassy Brass > Brown Wash > Brassy Brass > Polished Gold > Sepia Wash).


Will probably get his helmet finished next.

That's the newest version of Krell, isn't it? He's looking good so far.:winkthumbs:



Yes it is, or at least was (he lost named character status a while ago).




Did the Mohawk bit of his helmet (Red Scarlett/Bloody Red > stippled Fire Orange > Red Wash > a very light drybrush of Fire Orange) and the horns (Ochre Yellow > Iraqi Sand > Bonewhite > Sepia Wash).


Cape next, and then all the various furry bits.

When I need to pics from a mini that leans forward like that, I put it on a little wooden plinth and then take the pic. 


I will have to give that a try next time I need a shot of his front.

I love your painting methods, and the minis look so good! 




Finally made some progress (Haven't been feeling too perky this week):-




First, I painted his cape (Scarlett Red > Black Wash > Scarlett Red > Scarlett Red/Ochre Yellow), the inside is the same with a dot of Sick Green mixed in.




Then I painted the furry section of said cape. This was a base of Leather Brown/Ochre Yellow, then Drybrushes of Fire Orange/Ochre Yellow and Off-white/Ochre Yellow and a Sepia Wash.


I was going to do all the furry bits the same colour, but decided it would be a bit much, so the rest is going to be grey fur, which I'm doing next.

      Here was my entry for the 16th quarterly  Reaper Facebook Contest.  I was honored to receive an honorable mention.  There were dozens of fantastic entries.  
      I wanted to try a white dragon coloration.  I have Deathsleet in my queue, so this is a test run.  His scales are Dragon White.  The ventral surfaces are more of a bone color with Creamy Ivory and Linen White, with Sepia Wash.
      His dagger is a green NMM.  His eyes are gem-like, not lizard pupils.  The skirt completes the “triangle of interest” green color.  I rebased him on a Micro Arts 30mm Sewer base.
      I had a lot of fun with this one.  I wanted to keep him as a rogue, so I chose a dagger and loot bag from his hand choices.  I also painted his armor as leather with some gold NMM.

      Hello everyone, here's what I painted last week, a Skeleton Horde by Games Workshop / Citadel Miniatures from 1986. I mounted them on 25mm base and converted a few of them. I used remaining parts from other minis and changed some shields, skulls and weapons. I also printed two army trays to be able to move them more easily and change their arrangement on the game table. There's 16 skeletons in total and I intend to use them during future D&D games.






      More pictures under the spoiler (64 pictures).

      Here comes another one from EC3D, aimed for easy to print, supportless, hordes of lower CR traditional monsters and encounters:


      Welcome to "Beasts and Baddies" from EC3D, your one-stop shop for the fastest, easiest to print, and highly-reusable tabletop fantasy mini STLS!
      This campaign was designed with a few goals in mind:
      #1 - Give DMs and gamers a beautiful set of minis to cover the bases for MANY common beasts and baddies they might encounter across most games (particularly low-to-medium level ones)
      #2 - Make those minis DEAD SIMPLE to print - no supports required on resin or FDM printers.
      #3 - Design those minis so they can be painted fast, but detailed enough to paint to a high quality if you wish.
      #4 - Make those minis resilient - aka less prone to breakage with small pieces, easy to travel with, survive drops on the floor, etc
      Thus this campaign was born! Many Patreons and Kickstarters have crazy good looking sculpts of various huge bosses, or overly fragile dynamically posed monsters - but nobody is designing minis for the working DM, who wants to throw a set of monsters on the printer before work, come home and they are sitting there finished (with no print errors), slap some paint on them quick, and use them in tonight's session.
      This Kickstarter is designed for every DM - regardless of what kind of fantasy game you run, what kind of printer you have, or what kind of models you are looking to fill out your ranks with, this campaign will have something for you. We have sets of all your basic monsters (orcs, goblins, gnolls, kobolds, undead, etc) plus MANY stretch goals planned out, with a backer voting to help add even more stuff to the pledge.
      These minis are designed for your standard fantasy game, and are scaled ~32mm with somewhat heroic proportions. They'll look great next to your existing 3D printable figs, HeroForge, Reaper Bones, etc.
      Minis are designed to print with zero slicer supports - just drop it on your build plate and print away.  Each mini is provided unbased, based on a simple flat base (for you to decorate to your own liking), and also based on a "quick release" bevelled and channeled base (for resin printing, which makes removal from the build plate easy).
      In addition to carefully modeling designs to be support free, we have another advantage: I am a software engineer by trade, and developed an algorithm to help check and remove overhangs in the modeling/repair process, which leads to even easier to print minis!
      This campaign is easy to understand. There is one pledge level, and it gets you everything pictured on this page! All the minis below are included with your pledge. These minis will be delivered to you as  STL files, with all the base options noted above. I've also release a ton of BASES , and am working on another free base pack for this campaign you can use to base these minis if you want more decorative bases.
      As new stretch goals are unlocked, I'll add them to the list of included minis below.  There's 31 minis in the core pack, and I'm expecting to have nearly 100 minis in this campaign when all is said and done!
      ** PLEASE NOTE - This Kickstarter is for digital files (STLs) to make all these items on your own home 3D printer - these are not physical goods **

      Due to Brain Weasels and other Real Life Issues, I haven't been doing much, really almost no, fantasy painting...
      One of the things I have been doing is looking at old WIPs, and suddenly the desire to paint a DRAGON, came over me....
      So here is the start of my new work on Cinder, #10014, in METAL...
      Hopefully, I can keep up the sudden burst of enthusiasm....
      So planning on mold line hunting, and trying to decide what color to paint this dragon...
      As I am old school, the webbing between the back spines is leading me to green, but need to check the books to see which way to go....
      About time you returned from the place I couldn't reach you minion......
      OMG, please not again....

      any and all comments gratefully ignored....
