  1. Hi there! Looking for inspiration on the internet, I stumbled upon an stunning tutorial about a realistic way to paint stone. As I thought it may interest some of you around here (there are pillars on MBP, for instance), I thought it could be interesting to post it around here. This technique looks time consuming, but its result is quite impressive in my opinion.

    The mummies in this game are easy and quick to paint. Not sure it'll be the same with the one of Conan.
  3. With that guy, I used for the first time the Typhus Corrosion by Citadel. A really neat paint that should come handy when I'll be painting all those skellies. There may be too much brown on that rather dark miniature. It was my first try at painting obsidian blades too. And your Primitives? What do they look like?

    The Shivering Hands

    I once had Dr Strangelove's hands transplanted on me. This is not very convenient when it comes to painting miniatures (or to doing anything else), but those Picts won't paint themselve, will they?

    You could try to send a PM to @SentMa.
  6. Hi there! For now, they are five galleries on the website: - Batman - Conan - Mythic Battles: Pantheon - Contest - IRL I'd like to have another gallery, named 'Other Games' in order to share more conveniently pictures of other (non Monolith) games and I was wondering if other people around here find that useful and if you were willing to do this. @SentMa, la même chose pourrait être envisagée côté francophone, d'ailleurs, s'il y a des amateurs.

    Show Your Thak

    Neat! I like the staging of your picture, but maybe it could be interesting to see your miniature with more light, on a second picture, as the dark background give us only a glimpse of your paintjob.

    Crom! like button/emoji

    Seconded. An ominous mountain could do the trick and it could be called: 'Crom!' : « Their chief is Crom. He dwells on a great mountain. What use to call on him? Little he cares if men live or die. Better to be silent than to call his attention to you; he will send you dooms, not fortune! He is grim and loveless, but at birth he breathes power to strive and slay into a man's soul. What else shall men ask of the gods? » REH, The Queen of the Black Coast. But maybe Sentma has currently his hands full with the reprint of MBP.

    My wife, my brother's girlfriend and myself did a session of Heroquest painting this very afternoon. Here's some of the job made: Aside from these WIP zombies, there's still the mummies, the dwarf, the gargoyle and some furniture to do, and then it'll be full painted.

    Show your Zelata!

    Zelata! A character I'm very fond of, as well in the game as in the Hour of the Dragon. I'm not sure if it's my paintjob, a too heavy undercoat or the miniature itself, but it seems like the poor old hag arrived too late at the nose shop. Kinda like You-Know-Who.
  13. You're welcome, @drmauric! Cohen the Barbarian is a character made by Terry Pratchett. The short story Troll's Bridge tells how Cohen, growing old but still looking for challenges travels to a half-forgotten bridge kept by a dangerous troll. It's a great story (one of my favourite ever), with comedy and melancholia. A must read, in my opinion.

    Show your Conan!

    It's kinda hard to put a picture after @Walrusboy77... Anyway: here's my Amra.
  15. Just finished it. I really loved it. The King on his throne, with wine and his sword made me think of Colette's miniature and of that picture, obviously: I wondered if you had it in mind too, when you set the scene. I liked the way you used the items of your description to summon memories of the King. It was a very evocative and vivid story. I like the idea of an old Conan, still strong, but whose health is fading away due to his age. It recalls me Cohen the Barbarian, even if in your story, the melancholia isn't due to the changes of the world, like it is in Troll's Bridge, but merely to the age. I guess it works well, because we can all picture ourselves having the same thoughts as Conan, being old, looking back, weighing our lives, struggling with our memories, no matter good or bad. Neat, neat story. Kudos! I'd love to read more of them. Thanks for sharing it!
