Been awhile since I painted a humanoid figure. Here is my recent one, before I have sealed her.

I too have had the painting bug recently. Here are some shots of my latest ones from the Cthulhu Wars game. Really cool minis to paint. Plus they are pretty big, which helps my sawdust filled eyes. Th

Got some good painting done this weekend. Finished my Mauler Troll for Hordes. I am pleased with him. Finished the Spartan and some other stuff. Some of this is earlier but I didn't post pics yet.

The Great Wall KS project.  I pledged the "non-deluxe" version (basically blocks of wood vs minis), but now I'm thinking the pledgemanager is going to get me.

Maximum Apocalypse!  First 4.  Compared to the dinky dog/cat minis, these were easy peasy.  Note: not sure why the vet's dog is enormous...

Those all look awesome good job.

Those great Wall minis are amazing. I too am on a no buying minis period right now. Though if I see the new 40k starter set in stock after release I'm going to cave. It has both mine and my son's armies in it this time.

 

I did some painting on my wrath of kings the other day and mixed up some custom colours. I put them in some little paint pots the kids had that were empty but they didn't seal well and it all dried out :( now I have to try to mix a matching or close enough colour or start over.

It's not like there is much else to do.  And they were fun after all the tiny details on the dogs and cats I was working on before this.  I decided to dip into Monster Slaughter next.  The game has a bunch of NPCs like the professor from Back to the Future, Buffy, Machette, Crocodile Dundee, etc.  Plus I wanted to see how a bunch of your mini painters worked at the same time.  I definitely had more "accidents" as the number of mini painters increased.  Like hitting wires with the paint brush that was headed to the bowl of water or dipping the mini I was working on and snagging the wire of another one.  But to be fair I did all of Maximum Apocalypse at the same time.

After weeks away from the bench, I'm starting to paint a bit again - bugs, heat, and humidity have helped entice me to stay indoors!

This is a piece I'd intended to take Reapercon this year.  He's 99% complete, pending any last minute adjustments after he sits for a few days.  I'm really happy with him, tho he's almost overpowered by the base.

 

PS - That's a the base off of my Dog Might mini holder serving as a makeshift plinth for pictures!

If you didn't win, I'd really liked to have seen mini.

I know they're doing an online version of Reapercon but don't know exactly how (or if) the Mini contest would work.  I'll enter it if there's opportunity.

While there is a best in show and manufacturer's awards, overall Reapercon is set up so that you're only competing against yourself.  Everyone is rated Nothing/Bronze/Silver/Gold.  I was hoping this piece would be a high silver if not Gold level and then place well in the manufacturer's awards (DGS Games -- I took 3rd for them last year for my polar bear cavalry piece).

I learned a lot in this piece. I really hate painting skintones and whites, and I spent the most time on the tunic and face.  The next 'big' piece I have is a Brimstone boss (he's 6" tall) that has a LOT of tonic on him and expect to reuse a lot of these colors.

Your stonework was really good.  I hate doing faces/skins too.

And now for something completely different.  Monster Slaughter.  5 stupid teenagers go to party in an abandoned cabin in the creepy woods.  The monsters (players), compete for killing them.  "Special Guest Stars" come to the aid of the stupid teenagers.

Very nice work. The shading on Red Ansol's skin is excellent. Don't be afraid to do more of that. Also, isn't 'stupid teens' redundant?

Probably.  Red got redder than I originally intended, but he's a spoof on Crocodile Dundee, and he was pretty darn tan.

Did you freehand the graphics on the Ghost Hunter?
