repaints!?

Post  BoDoM on Tue May 11, 2010 8:43 pm

So I've started repainting some of the excessive duplicates in my collection. I've never painted any miniatures before, but I was happy to find it's not hard to do a better job on them than the painters at UD did.

I was wondering if anyone else here paints miniatures and if you had any tips for a beginner. I'll hopefully be taking some pictures and putting them up online somewhere sometime soon.

So... Not that anyone reads these posts anymore, but my repaints are going quite well. I've been reading up quite a bit on some websites, and I feel I have a decent grasp on most of the beginner's miniature painting concepts. So far I've completed repaints on rethilgore, namrah, sidian morningblade (he doesn't look like a power ranger anymore lol), bleakheart hellcaller, daggum ty'gor, wilton thorne, and sethekk talon lord. I'm still working on getting some pictures up somewhere, but taking a decent picture of a miniature is not the easiest thing with my cheap ass digital camera lol. Well, off to see if I can make zomm hopeslayer look a bit better.

There is a dude down in FL that has done some repaints. I actually have 3 of his pieces in my collection. He went by Teh Sig or Siggie. I would suggest contacting him for advice. Email me for his contact info.

Looking forward to your work. There are pics of repaints in the old UDE forums...

Looking good man. Keep it up! I like Rethilgore the best.

Here is a Cat Form Sig did for me.

That cat form looks great. I have 2 extra frostsaber prowlers and was thinking of doing a horde and alliance repaint. I just need to get a few more colors and I'll be trying that.

Sig is an awesome artist, I suggest connecting with him too. I'll try and get a current email.

PS - yes, I'm alive... barely Smile

I finally figured out what to do with zomm hopeslayer. He is now dual wielding merciless gladiator's daggers and is in the midst of cloak of shadows. I finished him today, base and all. I should have pictures up on Thursday!

So sad... Just seems like i'm talking to myself anymore here lol. Less people checking every week it seems. Anyhow, if anyone happens to read this, are there any repaints you would like to see me try? I'm only repainting my doubles, but I have a lot. So if there's anything you'd like to see just let me know!

As on obvious rogue fan, I really enjoyed your Zomm repaint. The other ones were good as well. I wish I had the time and money to get into painting. Do I have any suggestions for repaints? Not at the moment, but I'll return to the shadows and see if anything there is inspiring. Suspect

I too have an affinity for rogues, as my main was a forsaken rogue back when I played the MMO. I do have quite a few extra rogue minis laying around, so perhaps I'll work on one next. Should have some new photos up in a couple days. A blood elf eleanna starbreeze and a deathwhisperer in a green color scheme that actually looks armored.

So i'm back here talking to myself again lol. I treated myself a bit yesterday and got some new brushes and a few new paints. I'm getting much better results than with my old, substandard brushes lol. Should have some new pictures up early next week. I finished a cool looking irana and I'm now working on elizabetha cairnewillow. At least I think that's how it's spelled lol.

So after I made my last post my wife got angry that I didn't say that she buys me tons of paints in support of my new hobby. So here's a big thanks to her. Without her my repaints wouldn't be half as good as they are Smile

i put some new photos up. I haven't had time to sort and organize them yet though.

Here we have the blood elf eleanna starbreeze, deathwhisperer, irana, and a bog elemental that my lovely wife painted.

I hope you all enjoy! Any comments would be appreciated. Let me know if there are any repaints you'd like to see!

I had to put my other projects on hold to paint a vigor darkbreeze for my brother-in-law as a going away present. Considering he was the only other person I know who loves wowminis as much as me that sucks. Looks like I have to find someone else to play with lol. Anyways, pictures going up soon. I think it's my best repaint yet. I picked up some reindeer moss for some realistic looking shrubbery. I'm quickly learning that the base makes the mini almost as much as the paint job. Also did some base work on the deathwhisperer, which now makes it complete. I'll put up pictures of that with vigor.

So unfortunately the vigor pictures were lost due to a virus on the computer they were stored on. Hopefully my brother in law will email some good pics and everyone can still see him!

I learned a cool way of turning cork into rocks for bases and tried it out today. It looks pretty cool. Also painted timmo shadestep which was the first gnome I've attempted. I surprised myself a bit with how he turned out. Hopefully have pictures taken and up before I mail him out to his new home in indy Smile

the repaints really maximize the detail quality of WoW minis. I'm just wondering why you have yet to touch death knight class... your skill totally can bring them to life without Souls of Vengeance !

I tried to make sidian morningblade look like a death knight. Unfortunately I stopped playing the mmo before there were death knights so I need to research a bit to see what the equipment looks like. Perhaps that will be my next project. Thanks for taking a look at my work and I truly appreciate the compliment man!
