Kris' all new miniature thread

Thanks. A lot of it is just gluing some of the textures I've been creating to cardboard (or similar) ...so it's something anyone can try*

However, I now seem to be disappearing down another rabbit hole...





...but I kinda like the result.



(*I'm actually rather pleased with how my accompanying youtube channel has been received - I guess folks really like to use dungeons :) :) :) ).

I love to paint too much to go down that route, but that greenskin looks great!

edit: The Twig Blights on your youtube channel are very clever. I liked them a lot, even though you were a bit harsh on them.

Thanks. This gobbo uses a similar technique - but this time I'm designing the textures specifically for a mini ...and I'm much happier with the result.

I know what you mean. Though I've always dreamed of my own miniatures line ...and realistically, this is probably the closest I'm ever going to get :)

But yeah, this is mostly for a bit of fun ...and something to keep me occupied until 'Bones 4' arrives :)

Been a while, but I finally got something finished (just a quick paint job on these plastic ghouls).

OK, here's a couple of cheap plastic 'bugs' from a packet of misc. Halloween 'creepy crawlies'...

...and considering what they are, I think they've turned out OK.

Also, a few more (Reaper Bones) undead:


And some proper 'bug' miniatures:

Are the flies for Rangers of Shadowdeep or an OSR game?
I've been reading through 'Barrowmaze' recently (as I'm thinking of running it as a side game every now and again), and noticed that there was one encounter that features a couple of giant flies. Then I remembered that I bought a packet of 'creepy crawlies' last Halloween ...and the rest is history :)

I seem to have been productive these past few weeks :)

First up, giant croc from Bones 4:



A bunch of rats (older 'bones' minis) with a dwarf for scale:



A couple of wall toppers from Bones 4 (used as small gargoyles), and a dog from the older line:



And finally, a few metal skeletons from Ral Partha Europe:



:)

Damn Kris, every time I think my own painting is improving, you go and do this :p

Even the tufts you make are better than mine!!

What do you use to make the flowers?

They're home-made tufts again ...I do a few passes with 6mm static grass, and then another couple with 2mm (to give them two distinct sizes).

Once they've dried, I then paint/blob on a bit of pva onto the longer grass, and sprinkle some 'flower soft' on top (it's something folks use when making greetings cards and the like).
