Finally finished! Click here to view "Work in Progress blog" also added to miniatures 2019 gallery
A Hell Dorado miniature. Oddly all four of those spikes had to be glued on. My fingers weren't that big and I still had a tough time picking them up, afraid I would drop them into oblivion.
Some base colors and highlights
Broken up piece of cork for the base.
Left some metal on his feet to jam into cork, should keep him more stable than just glue if somebody knocks him while playing. Base is primed.
Base paint, wash and drybrush.
Some of that vallejo pumice aaaaand....finished.
Speed Painted Minis from the Blood Rage Board game. Most are painted to the players colors, so players can easily identify who is who on the board. The others are summoned to players control and not permanent.
These were finished up over the last couple of months, finally getting to their photos.
Kjell was one of the first minis I purchased and painted. He was originally used in the diorama below. I plucked him off, stripped and gave a fresh new repaint.
The gnome was repainted and can be found in one of the earlier galleries. He was hulking out here with some olive skin that I had no understanding of at the time.
Speed Painted a Whizkid Teifling as a gift for a friend.
And did some quick touch ups on my Stone Keeper from Privateer Press' Hordes game.
Been a bit late with posting and painting, but I feel like I am back in the game again.
Most of the base colors finished.
Most of the highlighting completed.
So proud of Older Camera. Took a pretty good shot without a tripod or anything.
I plan on painting more pink with the cloth underneath the sea green to break it up a little bit.
Wasn't sure about the sleeves and possibly making them a different color, but I like them the way they are, more uniform. Painting them would probably give her a rainbow of colors look and come out a bit silly.
Painted, sealed and finished. Putty on base is dry and should be completed tomorrow with some decent pictures.
Finished and the colors are more correct in this picture. For the final pics I always use my Cannon Rebel T5 in manual mode. I don't have much of a photography background, just a couple of classes in high school years ago, but I seem to do a decent job with it.
By the time I remembered that I hadn't taken any pics, I already had a huge chunk of him painted. Super sick while finishing him up, a relentless cold that is throwing just about every it can at me.
This figure marks the first one I created a cork base for. I hadn't planned on that otherwise I would have painted more contrasting colors, but it still looks cool. The cork base was interesting to make and the next one I will definitely take some pictures of. I also bought a jar of pumice paste from Vallejo, kind of pricey but there is a lot in there. I needed something to help keep Mr. Wenti and his one foot balancing act in place. I placed some of the pumice around his foot (dries rock hard) along with leaving some of the tab as a pin on his foot and super-gluing that into a hole I made in the cork.
Finished this just before I went on vacation last week, but was unable to take any photos prior to leaving. This is a Hell Dorado model and part of the first batch of models I ever purchased. It has been sitting in a box until recently re-discovered. Would make an awesome tengu. Too bad Hell Dorado is no longer in print, their sculpts were incredible.
A pack mule. That big bag is going to look really awesome and I actually look forward to painting the lantern. Although not a cool guy with a sword, he is something different... should be interesting.
Base colors are finished. Some Jade green for the blade pommel.
Flesh and brown washes with some highlights on the skin. Having a fairly ripped servant as your pack mule is a smart choice.
some putty and a toothpick, hoping it will pop out in the end.
Cleaned up, highlighted and other than painting on sealer, done.
Finished, more pics in the 2018 gallery.
Painted these just in time for board game night, last night. These would be speed painted for me. My goal was not to spend over 2 evenings with each one, but a couple of them went a little bit over that time. The game was fantastic and I plan on painting some more of them.
