Shadow Hounds

I needed some “special” monsters for my players to face in my Celestial Winter campaign so I ordered a set of Shadow Hounds. I have several translucent miniatures but this is the first time that I’ve painted one and it was a learning experience. There are definitely some cool effects that can be done with drybrushing…

Arthrand Nightblade, Elf Ranger

This is the miniature for one of the player characters in my Celestial Winter campaign. He’s a half elf slayer who lives a nomad’s life in the valley drifting from camp to camp following the game. The player requested earthy colors – so I went with a rich green and leathery brown. Not much else…

Ostarzha, Elf Cleric

This is the miniature for one of the player characters in my Celestial Winter campaign. She’s a human hunter who makes a living hunting around Springfed and helping at the family bakery in Lonepine. The player requested earthly greens as the primary color and strawberry blonde hair. Not sure that I quite delivered on the hair. I…

Damiel, Iconic Alchemist

This is the miniature for one of the player characters in my Celestial Winter campaign. He’s a human investigator who lives in Haven and makes a living practicing alchemy. The player requested orange and red as the primary colors! Sounds like an adventurous fellow – just the right sort to take part in an adventure….

Lem, Iconic Bard

This is the miniature for one of the player characters in my Celestial Winter campaign. He’s a gnome mystic who lives on the outskirts of Haven and makes a living practicing herbalism. The player requested functional brown as the primary color and it ended up being a lot more dapper than I intended. Also, dark…

Valana, Forgemaiden Sergeant

This is the miniature for one of the player characters in my Celestial Winter campaign. She’s a Dwarf crafter who moved to the town of Lonepine about forty years ago and has been trying her hand at woodworking. The player requested purple, red, blue, and gold with darker skin and very dark brown hair. This…

Blightfang

Every now and then, there’s a miniature that almost seems to paint itself. Like the Werebear, Blightfang was one of those miniatures. I was so immersed in the process that I didn’t take any progress photos – which is a bit of a shame as Blightfang looked so good in gold that I almost stopped there! …

Pathfinder Series Graveknight

The Pathfinder Series Graveknight from the Reaper Bones II Kickstarter is a classic BBEG miniature, in my opinion. There’s something almost silly about the sculpt which, in my opinion, makes it all the more unnerving. This character isn’t wearing a utilitarian outfit, there’s a clear aesthetic but it’s one that’s out of tune with society. I…

Trista, Female Warrior

I had fun converting the Aviriel Tellerion miniature to resemble Alisa Landale from Phantasy Star so, on a whim, I started making another video game inspired conversion. I ran with another classic Sega roleplaying game heroine, Mae the Centaur Knight from Shining Force. Last year, I had ordered four dozen Mini Plastic Horse Figures from Amazon for my daughter…

Photo Box

I don’t have a dedicated hobby space in my home. I keep most of my painting supplies in an old network switch box and my miniatures are secured in various plastic storage tubs. As such, I don’t have a great set-up for taking photos of the completed miniatures (doesn’t help that I just use my…
