    These are two Reaper figures that I sculpted, from art by Izzy "Talin" Collier. All right, I didn't finish this in time for Day of the Dead (Dia de Muertos) 2018 ... or even 2017. But I'm ten months early for 2019. If you're inspired to buy these, you have ten (or 22, or 34...) months to paint them, too. You can see my Works-in-Progress thread here. The basing is more extensive than I normally do, but I decided to push myself and try something different. Enjoy! Derek

    This is 77158: Arrius, Skeletal Warrior, a Bones miniature sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. The WIP thread is over here. This mini was primarily an opportunity for me to practice blending and NMM after taking classes at ReaperCon. (I took and recommend @Kuro Cleanbrush's classes on these.) (click on the pictures for larger versions) Constructive criticism and comments are welcome. I won't make any more changes to this figure but I can always use them for my next project.

    First posted the assembled mini about a year ago to the day.... Worked on it off and on (mostly off), but am considering it done (for now ;-) )

    I like the challenge of painting models that don't have a wide variety of images available in the product area. This is a great model. I really like the stern expression on her face. Bobby Jackson has also sculpted a superb looking bear! Having just restarted the hobby, my basing materials are a little spare. I found, however, that sticking with some very common, traditional flocking materials kind of ends of giving the model a bit of an old-school feel; I like that it looks good but at the same time it is clearly identifiable as flocking material from the modeling section of hobby lobby ;-) Adding a dab of white to the end of the sword made if look SHARP.

    [ . . . tentatively approaches the message boards with his first post] Just painted up Xiloxoch from the Stoneskull expansion. I needed a third Spirit Naga (my other two are the venerable 2755 Marunma) and while she seems much more regal than the book images, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to upgrade my Naga collection. The rulebooks show Spirit Nagas as black with red stripes - I painted my other two as coral snakes, however I thought I go for a local for Xiloxoch - the Australian red-bellied black snake (Pseudechis porphyriacus). These have a black edging on the outer edge of the belly scales which reverses the normal painting style for scales, so it looks a little weird. Given that Nagas are south / southeast asian critters I tried to paint her face and headdress in a way that evokes Indian imagery rather than Aztec. The "peacock" patterns started off as an attempt to paint a blue-green gemstone, but I think it works better as peacockery. Base ruins painted with deep reddish tinge to evoke Angkor Wat. Paint is still a little thick (particularly around the face). Happy for any feedback or suggestions.

    Found this "totally not Orcus" at my local gaming shop and decided to paint him up. I really liked the sculpt save for the scepter, so I clipped it off and kit bashed a new one. I used a few pieces from the some sprues of reaper weapons (got them from a friend, I think they came with Bones III kickstarter) and added a few GW skulls. I am super happy with how my scepter turned out. Love to hear what you all think.

    77636: Death Shroud and Ironwind Metals Female Necromancer. A Micro Art Studio Base and Table Top Art Book and Candle. WIP: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79298-children-of-the-grave-by-glitterwolf/&page=7 Taletha knew she was ready, she had studied the grimoire, practiced the ritual over and over again. She would call upon the Spiritworld and ask for a champion to avenge her parents. Power surged through her when she spoke the forbidden words, a cold wind blew her candle out and suddenly the spirit appeared.

    This is from Atlantis Miniatures dwarf Kickstarter - I painted him a while ago but only just got around to getting the photos off the memory card. The red hair took a few attempts, doing my best to follow Marsya's tutorial. My first attempt at tartan as well, and I think it was successful! And I've got lots more of his dwarven buddies on which to improve!

    New here but been painting for awhile. Its a shame I really enjoy the art and game but haven't really played for decades. My son is about old enough to start playing so it got me pa inting again. I like a chance to show them off a bit, maybe to measure out how well I am progressing. I down size the pictures to about 140kb or less. notice some haziness might be phone camera. I'll try a different camera later. I hope it inspires someone, I be honest I had a hard time figuring out what colors but once I started it took on a life of its own.

    Currently working through my pile of shame. Unlike my recent purchases (which have all been about sourcing minis for two Pathfinder campaigns), Gauntfield comes from a bunch of purchases made when a certain Australian mail order company decided they'd stop selling Reaper and had a clearance sale. He's been mouldering away in a box for quite a while now and I though I'd get through my white metal minis before I started making too much of a dint in the three (soon to be four) Bones Kickstarters I have chuckling darkly at me from the corner of the hobby room. I'm happy with the washed out look which suggests he's been out in the elements for quite a while. Not so happy with the NMM on the scythe blade - I find I can do gold/bronze a bit better than silver/iron. All suggestions greatly accepted.

    Finally happy with this one. She has been on the table since last year and has been through a couple color variations. Once I started pumping up the color saturation she just kept getting better. Hope you like her as much as I do.

    With a name like Nazeera Bloodraven I thought she should look a little on the evil side, hence her raven hair and red armour. I enjoyed freehanding stone slabs into the base, it was a nice wide flat area originally which gave a good opportunity to throw in a little flair :-) Great Model! Note: wasn't sure if the handle on the sword was lost in the cast a little or not, but I sculpted the top on where it meets the sword to match the bottom, so it might be slightly different than intended, not sure.

    Couldn't resist this little guy when I saw him. Love me a good dwarf. And on a pony, no less!

    I was almost going to name this one "Goremaw and the Unintended Iridescence" - it very nearly didn't get posted, but something unexpected happened when I was putting the finishing touches on it. I had initially given it an almost once over with a spray of mauvish purple and medium pink for the mouth, followed by a deep purple wash. Given that I intended for it to be a purple worm, this seemed like a good choice, however it was looking a little pedestrian. Some of the online images I've seen of Goremaw and similar giant purple worms had a more bluish tint, so I experimented with a light medium blue shade in some less visible areas to blue it up a bit and even out some of the messier highlights. Of course the blue settled into some places it shouldn't have, but it started to give the impression of some simple iridescence. I experimented with some medium green washes and that brought it up even more. To my eyes it reminds me of some of the shimmering rainbow patterns you see in the spines of certain aquatic worms, which is not a bad look for a gargantuan annelid like Goremaw. Another one of those miniatures that I was a bit disappointed with up until the last 30 minutes or so of painting. I just need to find something to paint now that doesn't have quite so many teeth . . . so many teeth . . .

    I thought of him more as a mage than a map maker. It's a touch difficult to see, but his slime trail has iridescence.

    I think this might be the last post of the year. From the Bones 3 kickstarter: An excellent stand-in for a Great Unclean One or Daemon Prince of Nurgle; a not-Froghemoth, that has now been renamed "77581 Mudgullet" and is slated for release by Reaper this January. Picture heavy! Click if you dare!

    This ranger was a blast to paint. The face turned out really well too so she got a close up.

    Another monster from the deep. Wish I had the talent to do this justice, oh well I guess I will keep practicing. Just a quick preview before it goes into the scrub bucket.

    I painted this a while back but could not come up with a good base for it. I found this resin rock base and figured it would just fit, if I could get it off the metal plug it comes on. Much blood and many tears later it was free from its metal prison. The cat originally had a faint stripe pattern in its fur, but as I said there was blood, and I ended up repainting a fair bit of it. He's painted vaguely like a desert dwelling wild cat.

    Here is a Tree Blight that I sculpted using milliput, wire & some parts from the Gug, eldritch horror mini and a Cave Creeper (Home Brew Monster) made with just milliput and wire.....not sure if this is the correct place to post, if not please let me know and I will not in the future....

    This is Reaper 3919 Persephone, Mythic Heroine sculpted by Julie Guthrie. She can almost be considered a speed paint, she came together so quick. After some careful examination, I figured out she is holding a fruit, which I painted purple. After I was all done I looked Persephone up on Wikipedia, and its definitely a pomegranate fruit she is holding per the legend of her abduction by Hades. Pomegranate can be red or purplish black, so I was not so far off in my color choice (yay).

    Here is my version of the Yeti Chieftain for Ladystorm's contest. I painted mine with more of a Sasquatch coloring. I also thought he needed something in his hand. My first thought was perhaps he sneezed.... Haha! Instead, he is a very dramatic yeti in the middle of rehearsing his lines. I present to you "Alas, poor Yorrick..."

    First real attempt at NMM bronze, and I got carried away with the freehand. Doesn't really match the model but eh, I enjoyed it.
