Painted Guys: The Next Generation


Ruth, my four-year-old daughter, has been very interested in my hobby stuff.  She asks to see what I’m working on.  She especially liked the egg that came the Wyrd Easter order.  So I asked her if she’d like to paint it.  Of course, she said yes.

She helped me wash the model, and I cleaned up the seam lines and glued it to the base.  She primed it with the airbrush (with some help), and eventually we found a time to actually paint it.

I worked on a different model, but Ruth was much faster.  She soon asked for another.  Luckily  I had some random Reaper stuff primed, so gave her a second.  This one she said was sitting on the sun.  My wife suggested glitter for the basing material.

They might not win any awards, but we had fun.

Iron Painter Round 1: Fool’s Gold


I’m participating in Wyrd’s Iron Painter.  In each round, participants are paired off and given two weeks to complete a miniature to fit a theme.  Round one’s theme is “Fool’s Gold.”

I’ve decided to interpret that as this poor idiot carrying too much and getting stuck in quicksand.

The model is Reaper’s Oswald the Overladen Henchman, yet another from the Reaper Bones Kickstarter.

I had sculpted a ripple effect into the base, but the texture (corn meal) seems to have filled it all in.

Reaper: Amathor Arch Mage


Amathor Arch Mage is one of the many Reaper models I bought ages ago in my high school D&D days.  I painted him up a while ago now, as a change from endless piles of Ultramarines.

I think he may be my very favorite of the Reaper models I’ve painted.  The beard has just enough texture to be interesting.  I ended up entering him into the painting competition for Celesticon 2013.
