Toog's Mods and Paints (10/26/2019)
 
Unpainted Miniatures
Spoiler Alert!


Here's another update, I'm not able to post my progress as much with grad school starting up, but I'll post my progress here when I can.

These were some C3V and SoV stuff I painted up and gave away for the Oregon NHSD event as raffle prizes. They were well received.

Some Reaper miniatures lizardfolk I painted up.

https://i.imgur.com/R5lC1Jh.jpg
Some Reaper miniatures undead. I really like the Arachno-Assassins (the 6 armed skeletons), they have some fun sculpts and are easy to paint up.

https://i.imgur.com/qqYX1su.jpg
Two dwarves I made from some reaper miniatures chibi figures, they turned out pretty good for a mod. I have 3 more of these that I'm working on changing.

https://i.imgur.com/749NluB.jpg
Some test models for my Wrath of Kings set. A nice simple paintjob that can be done quickly.

https://i.imgur.com/nYjVylv.jpg
A figure I went back to edit to fix up the skin/face, not the best, but it's better than where it was at.

https://i.imgur.com/XVi9n9Q.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/RdoQ5dF.jpg
A bunch of cultists from wrath of kings and reaper miniatures I painted up. They're pretty easy to paint because of the masks and not having to do faces.

https://i.imgur.com/FWe4TUe.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/C0vC4sg.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/bUV9U2n.jpg
Some more Reaper miniatures that I painted up.

https://i.imgur.com/tSN6Toj.jpg
Some nolzur's dwarves I painted up.

https://i.imgur.com/l6yLaBA.jpg
A minotaur and a minotaur skeleton.

https://i.imgur.com/YQqjLKX.jpg
A vrock I painted up from reaper miniatures next to the prepainted one from Pathfinder battles.

https://i.imgur.com/UsVK6pl.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/zLqdMk7.jpg
A reaper miniatures Argent dragon I painted up. Lots of drybryshing with silver over black and then washes.

https://i.imgur.com/7q37Y0j.jpg
Some Tharn wolf riders I painted up. They're nice and go well with the rest of the Tharn hordes stuff I have.

Spoiler Alert!

Love the Barbarian! She looks like the ones from Diablo.

Thanks she was one of my favorite figures to paint!

Here's an update with a few more figures that I painted:

https://i.imgur.com/GxyHkNq.jpg
This guy is a reaper Avatar of Sokar I've been looking to get this mini for a long time, and I like how he turned out. The base I used is a 38 mm wood base from Michaels which are around like 3-4 bucks for 22 bases and are even cheaper with their coupons.


https://i.imgur.com/HvGl46t.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/RpnTehO.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/zOg2z1z.jpg
These guys are Trollbloods from Hordes that I got from a local game store. The store I go to sells used figures for less than retail which can be a good deal, especially when the figures are pre-painted. I got these guys and they all had a basecoat, that was flaking off, but I was able to repair them and paint them up. They all had bits broken off that I had to glue, and for the big guy I had to pin the little troll back on him (as it was a metal figure).

Nice work. I really like the skeletons. They have great expression despite their lack of skin. :)

Thanks! I really like the Runewars miniatures for their expressiveness and their relatively simple sculpts when compared to the likes of Warhammer and Warmachine/ Hordes.


This is some of the stuff that I finished this week:

https://i.imgur.com/fuZExin.jpg
These guys were from the 2nd Reaper learn to paint set I got yesterday (I mostly got it for the paints, as I'm starting to get higher quality paints). These guys were also the first I used a wet palette for, and I can't believe how much easier that it made painting (because it kept my paint from drying out).

https://i.imgur.com/2bUz8s8.jpg
This one was a metal reaper mini that I got from a LFGS, and she was pretty fun to paint up.

https://i.imgur.com/0FX8HPe.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/QyOAIxw.jpg
This guy is a reaper bones mini, and makes for a pretty cool sahuagin cleric or champion.

https://i.imgur.com/OFc46jj.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/Zyax6Fv.jpg
Another reaper bones mini, this guy is a merrow (in this case an aquatic ogre). I tried to paint him up similarly to some Marsh Trolls that I have (as can be seen in my customs thread).

These are some of the guys that I painted this week:

https://i.imgur.com/DlEW9ix.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/Dnji5wU.jpg
This guy is Sharkman from Reaper miniatures, he's basically a huge WereShark (Reaper has a large array of strange Lycanthropes that look pretty neat).

https://i.imgur.com/gjH5WXH.jpg
This one is the Female Cloud Giant from Reaper miniatures, I wanted to make her have purple skin for some reason. I really like how her club turned out.

https://i.imgur.com/CnWSZUZ.jpg
This guy is the Red Dragon from the Wrath of Ashardalon D&D Boardgame. I speed-painted him up as a Grey Dragon. He is one of the Largest figures that I've painted yet, but I have much larger ones that are unpainted (the biggest are Dagon, Khanjira (a D&D Terrasque), and Mashaaf (a huge worm monster I want to paint up with a Marro theme).


https://i.imgur.com/f6M7sv7.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/aR4GDJM.jpg
These two are old metal minis from the Clan War Legend of the Five Rings miniatures line. They make for good monks or townsfolk figures for Heroscape and D&D, respectively.

https://i.imgur.com/ipq2vhe.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/Q1ONaAJ.jpg
These guys are also from Clan Wars, and are goofy looking samurai goblins that were just begging to be painted up and made into a heroscape custom.

Re: Toog's Mods and Paints (6/8/2018)
 
Here are the figures that I managed to paint this week, I managed to power through 25 different figures, leaving only about 120 that I still need to paint. :D

https://i.imgur.com/Dz2yHba.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/KtFmsPb.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/5SFGez3.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/ITNwplc.jpg
The most recent guy that I painted is the Fire Giant Jailer from reaper bones, he's the same height as Shurrak and a bit bulkier than the other Reaper Fire Giants that I painted a few months ago. I eventually plan to make some customs for them as I have basic ideas for a faction planned out for a high point giant army.

https://i.imgur.com/9GEDOjx.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/cGswEcy.jpg
This guy is another Reaper Bones miniature called Jungle Titan, He looks pretty cool as a monster on a Jungle map.

https://i.imgur.com/YFALErX.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/rEhFH4G.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/4vhlwAo.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/W8Akovp.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/jLi5eDC.jpg
I finally managed to paint most of my Mars Attacks martians (I still have two flying saucers I need to paint). These guys have sat unpainted for a few years and I liked painting them as a break from fantasy miniatures, I also liked painting them because of their bright color palette.

These look incredible! It makes me wish that I had any ounce of talent when it came to painting, as there are many great minis like these that look even better once painted.

Re: Toog's Mods and Paints (6/8/2018)
 
Thanks! Getting to where I'm at with painting took a long time to learn (and time to paint as it's pretty much its own hobby). The first mini I ever painted was C3V's Omegacron because I had a differently colored model and looking back at it, it really doesn't look good. I might have to post a picture of him to show my gradual improvement.

Re: Toog's Mods and Paints (6/24/2018)
 
This week I mainly painted some Reaper minis that I bought recently, but was able whittle down the number of figures I need to paint a little bit.

https://i.imgur.com/5WbVAJF.jpg
This guy is the newer Fire giant king (the old one would be a large this one is huge sized) by Reaper miniatures. I'm trying to work through a lot of my larger Reaper miniatures which is going well so far.

https://i.imgur.com/tA0oUvg.jpg
This guy is a Dragonborn (with some weird name) from reaper miniatures. He's pretty bulky (around medium 6). I tried to highlight the scales individually (usually I would just drybrush) and I think it turned out okay.

https://i.imgur.com/AEexnZH.jpg
This one is a Female Oni from Reaper miniatures who is also around a medium 6 in size. She was pretty fun to paint, I liked the red skin tone ( I tend to use it for most of my Tiefling figures)

https://i.imgur.com/K8XXgIN.jpg
These are the Aasimar Clerics from Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures (the unpainted D&D line) that I painted up as Aquillan Kyrie. These are the only two that I have, but eventually I want to get a couple more for a common squad. A warning about painting these guys, the one on the right has the magic effects glued in which blocks most of the figure. I had to break it and re-glue it to paint the figure, otherwise the angles would be near impossible.

https://i.imgur.com/YabLxqN.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/t6lyBdA.jpg
I got 2 more Clanwars miniatures painted. I tried to paint them as Kozuke samurai, and eventually I want to get some Samurai Horsemen to make a squad of Samurai Horsemen with a Kozuke color scheme.

https://i.imgur.com/ZImbczz.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/UMeKPMk.jpg
This one is a mummy lich by Reaper Miniatures. The thing that I found most challenging with painting this guy was trying to keep his cloak, sand and skull distinct, but still sandy looking.

https://i.imgur.com/lqPHTL9.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/ZeMYPU3.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/8Uki6MT.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/a5trGUU.jpg
This one is another reaper mini called Troll Slayer Sophie. She was pretty fun to paint up as a kyrie. I ended up painting her with a lighter Caucasian skin tone because I wanted to practice that skin tone a bit. I tend to start off with a light brown base color for skin color and then highlight, but This time I used more of a pinkish color as a base coat and worked up from there.

Thanks!



This week I was able to make a fair amount of progress on my unpainted minis bringing down my count to 81 unpainted figures.

https://i.imgur.com/wG5QQgU.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/lksyiwM.jpg
This guy is a Troll by Reaper miniatures. I painted him up to go with the Marsh Trolls in my Customs thread.

https://i.imgur.com/3Bvhioe.jpg
This guy is a Reaper Frost giant that I painted up to match my other frost giants. I really like painting the blueish white skin tone.

https://i.imgur.com/1ZNIhIS.jpg
This is a Jabberwock from reaper miniatures. This mini tends to have leaning problems, so I had to glue his foot on a rock.

https://i.imgur.com/y5ba1mh.jpg
This guy is Golan, Hill Giant by Reaper miniatures. I was able to practice skin tone with the large surface areas, as well as blending in pimples and wounds. The base that I has was sort of messed up so I ended up flocking it and adding some scenery.

https://i.imgur.com/uvXDu1D.jpg
These are a set of Tharn Bloodletters by Privateer Press for their Hordes game. I really like some of the Tharn models and their barbaric elf look.

https://i.imgur.com/3jldz7f.jpg
This is a group of 24 Daqan Infantry from the Runewars Miniatures Game from Fantasy Flight Games. In the picture they are still drying after using a black wash to enhance the details in the sculpt. I like to mount medium figures on paint bottles with sticky tack so I can hold them without messing up the paint.
