  1. Thanks. These have been a lot of fun to make.
  2. I made it. I started out with a Frog Champion from Dark Sword, cut off a lot of pieces, and did a lot of sculpting. The insect legs were taken off of a Reaper spider, and the sword is a Kingdom Death piece, but most of him is my sculpt. The dunb ball is 100% apoxie sculpt/green stuff.
  3. I could describe these next ones, but I think we just want to skip to the pictures anyway.
  4. The Screaming Antelope is one of the core monsters of Kingdom Death: Monster. And the fact that you can get so many fine resources from it makes it one of the most hunted creatures in the setting. For this paintjob, I wanted to move away from both the grey standard color scheme for the antelope and away from the red "skinned antelope" look I've often seen. All together, I feel like this came out really well. The base is constructed from apoxie sculpt and green stuff.
  5. Kingdom Death miniatures remain some of the very best in board games- even the older ones from the core box set. This is the Butcher. While he is normally painted in a very dark color pallet, I chose to use some lighter colors on him (especially for his fur). Overall, I think this worked quite well. I also created the base of faces for him.
  6. So I like playing Gloomhaven, but I really don't care for standees. Since I had been making chibis for Kingdom Death and Warhammer Quest, it seemed strangely reasonable to me to 'simply' replace every standee and character mini with custom made chibi minis. Yeah, it didn't end up being all that simple, but it has been a really fun project. Let's start out with the PC classes: The Inox Brute. This was the first Chibi Gloomhaven character that I finished. I was very excited to make him. The body comes from a Cyclopes from Impact! Miniatures. The head is mostly my own sculpt- although I did have some plastic horns leftover from various GW kits. The orchid spellweaver was a really fun one to make. She started life as two separate ninjas from Ninja All Stars (head and body). I really liked sculpting all of the crystals on her. The Vermling gave me a bit of trouble. I needed something between a goblin and a Skaven, that could also fit in with the chibis I'd been making. I looked around for ones that would fit the style well, and eventually discovered that the Wiz-Kids Pathfinder Goblins were close to perfect. They just needed their ears fixed and tails attached. The human Scoundrel. I made here eyes glow to match the artwork (my wife played this character, but it definitely took her a minute to recognize that the character was, in fact, human. Later, someone pointed out to me that she's wearing a mask in the artwork. The Quartryl Tinkerer was a lot of fun. He's got a sort of steampunk look about him that really doesn't match most of Gloomhaven's technology level And here's the Savaas Cragheart. Ready to destroy all of the scenery. And, of course, there are the locked characters. I'm hiding them behind links to protect people who haven't unlocked them yet. Sun[/img] Moon Cthulhu Three Spears Two Miniatures Angry Face Circles There are a few heroes that I still need to finish and get pictures, so I'll come back and update again. But there are also monsters. A lot of the monsters for Gloomhaven fit into some group that I already have for Super Dungeon (Zombies, Skeletons, Slimes, etc). For others, I found chibi miniatures that works quite well, but for many of the most distinctive ones, I built custom miniatures. None of these minis are 100% sculpted from green stuff, but very few of them don't have at least some green stuff on them.
  7. I created this mini a little while ago, but for some reason I missed showing him off. This is my chibi version of the Manhunter nemesis monster for Chibi Kingdom Death. The core mini started its life as a cowboy robot from Rail Raiders Infinite, so he's come a long way to get here. For the base, I wanted to create a chibi version of a base that I had previously made for the proper Manhunter mini.
  8. There are a lot of different takes on the Flower Knight. This makes sense, it is an absolutely brilliant miniature. There are a lot of different ways you can go with him that would work. For this one, I went with a more muted interpretation and mix of oxidized gold and steel armor with sort of muted greens and magenta clothing and accents. The next time I paint up this mini, I’ll likely do something drastically different with him (or her… I’ve never been totally certain with the Flower Knight). Maybe brighter colors or green armor.
  9. A little while ago, I got a full set of metallic paints in vibrant primary colors. I immediately felt like there was huge potential to this- you could use them to add all sorts of extra depth and interest to True Metallic techniques. And one of the things that struck me was the idea that you could use them for feathers. With many birds, feathers already have a sort of metallic shine to them, so it isn't too crazy to consider using true metallic techniques to express this. While I initial was afraid that it would be hard to keep the phoenix from looking inanimate -like a bronze statue of a bird, rather than a bird. To my surprise, I didn't have to do a lot of corrections for this, since the mini really never was in much danger of looking too inorganic.
  10. The first wedding cake toppers that I made all involved Zombies. Over the years, I’ve made quite a few more, but I definitely have a love for the zombie survivor wedding cake toppers. One of the variants that a client had me create was that rather than create zombies that climb the cake, we just have a pile of defeated zombies underneath the bride and groom (they’re standing victoriously after the combat). Even with the John Woo style pistols, I really don’t think the groom can be responsible for this kind of dismemberment, so this round goes to the bride.
  11. I've been painting a very large Nurgle force with rust effects for a while. I'll go ahead and update this thread with more pictures as I go. I really wanted to do very rusted and oxidized metals for most of the minis, and I think this look has worked quite well for the force. I feel like I rarely get to do this kind of rust (since even orks would probably throw out weapons that were this poorly maintained).
  12. I've been playing Stuffed Fables lately- it is quite a nice dungeon crawler. One of the things that drew me to the game were the fantastic miniatures. Most of them are in that sweet spot between cute and creepy that comes out just brilliant. When I'm painting my own sets of minis, I tend to avoid the official color schemes and instead look for ways in which I can reinterpret the sculpts with color. For Stuffed Fables, I decided to try and make all of the stuffies and enemies look worn, dirty and used. I think this fits in with the Velveteen Rabbit's concept of stuffed animals- they're real when they're stained and worn. Overall, I feel like this made the minis look a little more like Wyrd's Malifaux minis than most versions of Stuffed Fables that I've seen. So here they are. I made these photos very large even though the minis are quite small (especially the Stuffies themselves). Plaid Hat Games released a Stuffed Fables Coloring Book. Most of it is pictures of the characters, or even coloring book pages of their character sheets, but there are two new character sheets included. One is for a puppy stuffy, and the other is for a giraffe. I decided to create these last two stuffies and finish my collection: The dog is 100% green stuff, and is probably the smallest of the stuffy minis. The giraffe uses a mix of green stuff and bits (the 'base model' is a Super Dungeon Giri, but he's been modified a lot).
  13. This is a White Lion from Kingdom Death that I painted pretty recently. I think it is really easy for white to look plain, even when it is done well, so I went with a very colorful white. I did a quite write up on some of the techniques I've been doing recently to make painting white more interesting. Anyway, here's the lion. I haven't posted anything to Coolmini in a while, so I decided to post this one up. Here it is if you care to vote.
  14. Thanks. I really love the line of minis, and I'm very glad that I've had the chance to do them up nice.
