Catching up 2015

Wow I have some catching up to do. I haven’t had much spare time lately but I did get some painting done this Fall and early winter.

I participated in two Reaper Miniature Exchanges on the Forums this year, both the Fall and Winter Exchange.  Since I managed to get my Winter Exchange sent out before Christmas I can include it for 2015. For the Fall Exchange I chose to paint Reaper Miniatures Hannah Blackruby sculpted by Werner Klocke. I love this sculpt she is super pretty with a beautiful face. I swapped her wand for a book but otherwise everything is just as it was sculpted. I wanted to try my hand at a darker olive skin tone and I loved it. I hope to use this skintone again soon. Here was the result. (Don’t forget to click on the photo for to make it larger)

For the winter exchange I chose Reaper Miniatures Ghost Bride. Since she is a ghost I wanted to stick to a fairly monochromatic scheme. I used mainly blueish grays and tried to give her dress a bit of textured and old look to the paint work. This also gave me an excuse to practice an odd skintone to give a bit more warmth to her skin I shaded it will a dark pink to separate her skin from the cloth. Here she is on a display base.

And as a gaming piece.

I also accomplished a few more Khador miniatures including Zerkova for a friend’s army and a unit of Doom Reavers for my own. I really had some fun with Zerkova’s base adding some icicles and water effect.

Since 2015 is just about finished. I look forward to a new year of painting in 2016 hopefully with new challenges and fun miniatures to paint. I hope to push the limits of my painting and achieve some beautiful minis next year. Happy Painting everyone and I wish you all a wonderful New Year.

  1. Super-awesome all around. I’m jealous of whoever will receive that Ghost Bride. Doomies look fantastic – I’m hoping to get some one day, but those swords will drive me bonkers. And I still can’t believe how fantastic you made Z’s cloak look.

  2. Greylords Ternion or Outriders? I have a unit of Ternions that should be getting here on Thursday (via Christmas gift cards).
