Ogre Guard

Back in June Dagger & Brush asked me what my technique was for painting the flesh of my Cave Trolls. I wasn’t sure how to answer at the time – it had been a rushed process of painting sloppy layer over sloppy layer to get those trolls ready for a Pathfinder sitting. I’ve mulling over…

Skorg Ironskull, Fire Giant King

My current Pathfinder campaign has entered Giant country and that’s spurred me to start painting my collection of Reaper Bones Giants. This time is Skorg Ironskull, Fire Giant King. As with Vanja Fire Giant Queen, I decided to go with more “human” colors to render this an all purpose Giant.

Starmane, Unicorn

I ordered the Starmane miniature for a “Unicorn” NPC in my current Celestial Winter campaign.  No complaints about the sculpt – it’s fantastic – but I was disappointed by my paintjob this time around. I like how the mane turned out but was let down by the body. I really wanted to capture a star-field/nebula…

Vanja Fire Giant Queen

I didn’t have much interest in Giants until I featured them as an extinct legendary race in the backstory for my Heretic’s Creed campaign. This inspired a growing fascination with the “big people” that’s lead to me including them in more and more prominent roles in campaigns. Vanja the Fire Giant Queen is one of…

Marthrangul Great Dragon, Take Two

I had such a great time painting Marthrangul, Great Dragon as a White Dragon that I decided to order a second copy and paint it again as another type of dragon. I considered Red or Black but finally settled on Green. Green Dragons are not one of my favorite types but they are the classic. I decided…

Chosen of Sokar, Nefsokar Sergeant

You may have noticed a new painted miniature in the last Celestial Winter Session Three summary. I hadn’t quite finished this mischievous villain in time for the session so I fielded him incomplete…and then it took forever to actually finish him up. But here he is. I painted the flesh amethyst to make the miniature stand out…

Marthrangul, Great Dragon

I purchased the Marthrangul Great Dragon miniature to enter in Michael Mordor’s May painting contest. Unfortunately May ended up being a terrible month on the work front – surprise resignation left me working some evenings & weekends – and I didn’t finish it in time for the contest… Oh well! I like entering these contests…

Cave Trolls

I quickly painted these fellows for use in the next sitting of my Celestial Winter  campaign but I can see them getting used often in future sittings. I’m happy with how the blend of colors turned out on their skin. The base coat was a dark beige which I dry brushed over with “marsh” green. The heavy…

Vordakai, Cyclops Lich

I had been on the look out for a miniature to serve as a specific antagonist for my Celestial Winter campaign and I decided that Vordakai Cyclops Lich more than fit the bill. Now that I can paint my own miniatures I’m trying to field foes that are visually unnerving rather than just straight out threatening. I think…

Aglanda, Herald Of Razmir

I had started painting Aglanda Herald Of Razmir a couple of weeks ago but then got caught up in other projects. I picked it back up last night and went in another direction.  I’m going to use as an specific NPC in my Celestial Winter campaign. Not sure that this unusual coloring will lend the mini to…
