I started painting this pair quite some time ago, putting into practice some of the technique I learned in Jen Greenwald’s class on painting whites. I finally put the finishing touches on them last night. Now I want to play a cool psychic character. I don’t even know if they get familiars or anything.

I picked this guy up at ReaperCon a few years ago, got him to about 90% then left him for a while. I wanted to do NMM on the gun barrels, but decided that enough was enough and finished him while on vacation last month.
My favorite part is the crazy eyes. Usually black dot in white is wrong, but here it’s right 🙂

I fished this cute girl out of the Box o’ Goodwill from the Reaper forums, so it’s only right that she make her way back to another forum member as an exchange mini for Secret Sophie 2016. Tricksay wanted to receive “open to anything”; I love when people pick that, because I can just paint whatever I feel like. Thanks to Bonwirn for giving me a bunch of Hirst Arts blocks to make the diorama out of.
After I took these pictures I realized: OMG, you can’t even see the rear half that I spent so much time on. Despite the chance of ruining the mini, I carefully drilled a magnet hole through the bottom of the base so she can be removed. I threw in a gaming base as well for picture taking purposes, and just in case Tricksay ever wants to use her in a game. I was joking with my friends at paint day that “no, those are her adventuring clothes; convenient necklace, weird skirt-thong and all.”
This post will be delayed, because she’s a boss my players will fight soon. Fairly quick job, mostly letting the airbrush do the hard work, then glazing over with inks and translucent paints.
Pictures taken with my other camera (the point-and-shoot). For some reason, it picks up white dots everywhere. I think it’s something about my matte sealer. In hand, it looks more like the cell-phone pictures.
