    Finally got around to taking photos of my ReaperCon entries for 2017 and this was one of my entries in the Painter's category. This is Dark Sword's Female Wood Elf Warrior and I wanted to paint this one up for a long time but could not decided on what color scheme to use. All I knew was that I wanted to do something different than what you would expect for a wood elf but I did not know what. It finally came to me, use mainly purples and greys and make her a drow. After determining that, the base plan came to me pretty quickly, place her in a cave with natural crystals and spiderwebs. The webs were created using UHU glue. She ended up being my entry that was judged for that category and I was very pleased to receive a gold medal. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    My new years resolution was to do more of the things that make me uncomfortable. Freehand makes me very uncomfortable. I'm going to get over that this year and try and push my boundaries even further. The Eagle isn't quite as smooth as I'd like it to be but I'll leave it as is and improve on the next attempt.

    I finally finished my Dragons Don't Share! I have another that I purchased to paint sometime next year! For this one, I was inspired by the ruins of Pompeii. I went with the yellowish stones and added frescoes and statues. There is also a bird in a nest, a lizard, butterfly, and bunny in amongst the ruins. I used a lizard photo to design my dragon instead of going with a "usual" color. I thought he fit in with the ruins. You can see the work in progress here: C&C welcome! Thanks for looking! There are lots more photos on my page. The link is in my signature.

    This was the Secret Sophie mini I painted for Auberon this year. One of the "inspiration" pictures he sent me was described as "not technically a chainmail bikini." So I just decided to go with an unabashed chainmail bikini. I experimented a bit and used NMM on the armor and blades. I'm happy with the placement on the gold, but I think it needs more contrast. I'm happy with the contrast on the steel, but the placement is definitely wrong somehow. Comments on how to improve this are welcome.

    This was one of my dioramas for the 2017 ReaperCon. I got the idea when Bombshell announced their Maelee and bot combo pack for the month of February last year, I think. I just happened to be playing Fallout 4 at the time and got the idea of doing a wasteland bot shop with Maelee as the owner and a bunch of bots around doing things. This was not my diorama that ended up being judged for the medal but it did received the silver Maelee Award for Diorama/Large Scale. Here is the WIP thread: The Bot Shop A big thank you to everyone who gave me feedback in the WIP thread and a huge shout out to @SisterMaryNapalm for recommending I add the android which ended up solving my "is this telling a story?" issue.

    So as everybody knows, in 2017 I attended my first ReaperCon ever. There I got to meet many wonderful people in real life, and I have to say it was probably the finest group of human beings I've ever spent time with. We picked a table at random, and so wound up with some random people sharing our table as people came to the con. @pcktlnt was one of them, and even though everybody here already knows he's pretty great I want to tell you that face-to-face he's even better. Pcktlnt is a genuine top-tier human being, even among such a great crowd of people. Before ReaperCon, being aware of the melt table there, I declared it my intention to raid it and Save The Parthas from doom. Since I could not monitor the melt table the whole time (even though I tried), I put the word out. I didn't care who wound up with them, I wasn't trying to get them for myself, I just wanted to save them from being melted into oblivion. Save The Parthas! was the cry. Now, to be 100% frank, my actual objective was to save the precious and rare TSR-era Parthas above all else. But, since asking people to scan the table for minis made in this specific 8-year span with these specific features and check the bases seemed like rather a lot to ask, Save The Parthas was shorter, sweeter, and simpler. And Save The Parthas they did! At one point, I forget which day, pcktlnt came by the table and delivered an old 1982 Partha giant lady. At some point in the past she had been painted with green skin and yellow fur. While a touch older than what I usually collect, I graciously accepted the free mini and said I would paint it up. I have, and here she is: For the age, she's not a terrible mini. She turned out, in fact, to be a very early Julie Guthrie. This particular specimen, being from the 80s and made of soft lead, did have some wear and tear. So I worked with what I could, and I'm happy to add her to the shelf. But the story doesn't end there! When I looked her up to identify her, I discovered she was Version 1 of the female giant from All Things Dark And Dangerous. I was familiar with Version 2, but had never seen this one. So I found some scanes of Partha catalogs older than my physical copies (which only go back to 1993) and she appeared in 1983 (stamped 1982 on the base) and was replaced in 1985 by version 2. Which means, technically, she's actually MORE RARE than many of the TSR minis! I don't know who brought it, but if you're here I'd be interested to know how you came by this figure. She's been painted, probably a long time ago, and has seen some action. She's got some history, and it didn't end just yet. Sometime in the 80s somebody saw her in a blister and said: "that's nice, I'll buy that" and now she's here, probably in a different country. What happened in all that time? How many players did she smush? I have no way to know, but now she's mine and I've grown fond of her. I love her just as much as any other mini - whether Takhisis or Factol Rhys. So a special thank you to @pcktlnt for your tireless stalking of the melt table, and for giving me the chance to own a little piece of odd history and give a miniature a good home. As an aside, if anybody wants a good melt table story, ask @Dr.Bedlam about The Joker With One Foot. It's a legendary tale, told best by him. (I saw the Joker with my own eyes before he told me).

    Kevoth-Kul the Black Sovereign. Am I the only person to have painted this? I usually like to take a look at other painted interpretations of minis that I'm considering to paint. I can't find a single one of this guy anywhere. I can't be the only one who likes it.

    So this is everything (that I'm sure of) that I painted in the last 13 months. There might be 2-5 more that I did within this timeframe but I couldn't remember exactly when so I left them out. I also left out the Bones Gelatinous Cube, since all I painted was the inside part. This comes out to around 148 minis, with an average painting time of 4 hours per night (8:30 pm - 12:30 am). You can get a lot done on 4 hours a night! I also had to take the picture with my phone, since my camera thinks all of my batteries are dead. Even the new ones.

    I picked up the clear Kyphrixis from Bones 3 with the full intent to make it a White Dragon while leaving the wing membranes translucent,which is what I did. I did wind up deciding to do a wash on the membranes, but otherwise, really love the effect.

    Here is my Marthrangul. She reminded me of a thorny devil lizard so that is the paint scheme I went with. She has accumulated a treasure pile amongst some ruins and made a nest to lay her eggs near her treasure. The treasure is made from glitter, tiny gem colored beads, and bits from the bits box (shield, banner, daggers and swords, etc.) There is a skeleton that has been squashed by some of the falling stones. The eggs are made from greenstuff and display the extent of my sculpting skills. The last photo is pre-nest.

    This time around I drew Generic Fighter as my exchange partner. The paint request was for cool PC/NPC figures, which is a fairly easy target to hit. The first mini is a cleric of Mammon, which doesn't really mean anything to me but might to the PF crowd. It was as well cast a mini as you could ask for and fun to paint. That one took no time at all to paint so I went ahead and painted up a second mini. This one is the Winter Witch, which at least sound cool or even cold. After I started working on it I discovered a number of casting defects which I tried to fix, but it would have probably been faster to just request a replacement. Anyway, I decided to make a color that I almost never use my primary dress color and then kind of let the rest fall in where it would. I was going to go with a winter base, but I found the white snow was too white and messed with the highlights on the mini. Thus it was painted over to gaming grass. The staff is not attached so he has the option of what angle to place it at. Also, it's more likely to survive shipping.

    I wanted to share this here for those of you not on the social media outlets. My daughter's latest project was the Crazy Cat Lady that I got her for Christmas. She painted the cats first which just amazed me because some of the detail she put on them was awesome. Once she was done and I could not get her to touch up anything else she wanted to base. I decided she would do it all except the super glue. So away she went with craft glue and basing materials. She has a few more things I got her for Christmas and then birthday is in less than two weeks and I have a couple more minis for then too. Should be a busy year if actually sit down and paint.

    It's been a while since I've posted anything here. I have some making up to do. Forgive me. Dub Bullock. A most unpleasant painting experience. Mine was badly cast so I had to fix up a few spots. This is not something I'm good at. Greenstuff is my enemy. Thorvald, Dwarf Hero was an experiment in blue armour. I'm not sure if I'll do that again. Baeldrinahr, Rogue Fighter. I've painted this one before with a similar scheme.

    This is Marshalla Sylvie from Freebooter Miniatures. In my Lost World she is Bonita, Half Pirate / Half Snake. I gave painted her base as if she was on driftwood in the water. Had fun with the Snake part and tried a little sheer on her blouse.

    I painted up Yoon. She is so adorable! Since she's a kiddo, I wanted her to seem whimsical so I gave her rosy cheeks and purple and yellow striped pants. Her stuffed owl is SO tiny! I enjoyed painting her. C&C welcome!

    In an effort to turn my dusty shelf of unpainted models, into a colorful shelf of "I've done it", here is the first one I completed for 2018. 02806, Badger-Wolf sculpted by Geoff Valley. Also known as Leucrotta, Badger-Wolves are magical beasts hated by all. They hunt with their ability to imitate a variety of noises, the most common ones being a woman, child, or domestic animal in distress. In ambush, they prey on foolhardy heroes that hear their sounds and come to investigate unaware of the impending danger.

    I don't use huge Fire Giants in Pathfinder, but I ordered this guy with the intention of converting him into a demon or devil. At Origins this year, Reaper was selling blisters of bits, and one set was a bunch of wings, which included the wings from Bones 2's Orcus stand in (77316), so I slapped those on there, along with the forms from 77315 Fire Demon. I got a bit of a Green Goblin (from Ultimate Spider-Man) vibe, so I used purple as an accent color and made his hammer sort of fire-heated. The base includes some sculpted clay to round out the base.

    Just finished my new Beholder. Hope this mini isn’t sold out trying to do a lot of them. Critique welcomed. I think I might brush the inside of the mouth with gloss, but other than that I think it is done.

    Hi all and happy new year! Here are two figures I recently finished that Ral Partha has re-released, a ranger and a female fighter. The ranger was sculpted by Jim Johnson and the fighter was Bob Olley. Fun figures to paint, kind of bulky and a larger scale than the old Partha stuff I'm usually working on. and just for fun, I took a close up of the lady's face, because it always seems to happen that when a character has something raised over his head, the detail becomes smaller because your picture is so much higher: Anyhow, really enjoyed painting these figures, loads of fun, full of personality and a good hefty size. And they're metal, which is another plus for me!

    This miniature I've had for a while, since about 2008. I tried painting her a while ago, but I got stuck. I don't know about the rest of you, but I find painting horses to be very difficult - mostly because my colours just never seemed quite right. In November, I had to lay in supplies for over winter and that meant buying the last of my paint restocks from Coat D'Arms. While I was there, I noticed in their military line they had some Horse Tone colours. I figured, hey, why not? At least they'd probably wind up the proper colour. So Ms. Redstorm here was my first try using Coat D'Arms 224 Horst Tone Bay. The other horse tones are Dun, Chestnut, and Roan. If anybody is interested in seeing these in use, I have a number of horses and will be ordering more in a few days so I can do a WIP to show the different ones. Having pre-mixed horse colours simplifies the task quite a lot, and four colours is enough to add variety to a mounted group. I really enjoyed painting this miniature, and I never thought painting a horse would be so much fun. Also, if you're wondering why I filed off the intricate design of her shield that shows in store photos it's because her on-foot version (Vanessa of the Blade) I painted some time ago came with some pitting on the shield. As it was not enough to really bother complaining about, I merely filed it off and painted a simple quartered pattern. Since the mounted version should match my footed version, I did the same here. So if you want to see a WIP of the horse tone colours, let me know! I'll pick 4 Reaper horsepeople out of my collection when the new ones come in and paint 'em up.

    Hi, my name is Lyssa and this is my first time having the guts to post a mini on here. She’s not my first mini ever, but one of my rare few humanoids. She’s a pc for my fiancee in our new Star Wars campaign started. She also requested that the white markings be obviously painted on similar to The Clone Wars show. Also my first completed mini of 2k18!

    Got the ogres and ogre command in Bones 3 and decided to paint them all up at once so that they'd match. I call the regular ogres Huey, Dewey, and Louie due to their colors (I find a clear color delineation makes it easier to track them during games) and I really like the floral pattern on the green bags, like he just scrounged them up from someone else. The command figures were fun, creating all the mismatched plates on the warrior. I decided that the ogre "sorceress" should be "hot" so I painted her up in a tartan mini skirt and semi transparent white shirt, as well as putting her "purse goblin" in pink and giving her a tramp stamp (didn't get a great photo of that, sadly). I really enjoyed painting these guys up. Edit: I swapped out the Ogre Fighter's mace for the hooked blade from the Fire Giant Jailer, because I just liked the hooked weapon more.

    I finished the base before I ever decided on the miniature I would place on it. This is something I do quite often; it may be another sign of imminent senility. The King of Nothing just caught my eye & seemed to be The Right piece for the base. He had done his time in The Vault, so I painted him up & mounted him on The Base. I was initially going to wait on posting him here, in the Show Off that is, until the new photo stage was done. Since God only know when that would be, I'm posting him now. He is seen here on my work table: AND to give you a peek at the W.I.P. Twisted Tower Photo Stage a couple, on stage: Have a WONDERFUL evening, AND A JOYOUS NEW YEAR...preferably one that starts sans the hangover!

    This was my second diorama for ReaperCon 2017 and was the one picked for judging. The idea for it actually began at last year's ReaperCon and was originally going to be the wizard catching the barbarian mousling breaking in. Over the year it evolved into a large scene than originally planned and I swapped out the barbarian for the two thieves/rogues. It ended up getting a gold medal and Mousling Honorable Mention. Any feedback would be appreciated. Here is the WIP thread: Stop Thief! Thank you to everyone who gave me feedback while creating this diorama.

    These three are from the Northstar Military Figures Skeleton Set, meant for the D&D game I found myself DM'ing after 10 years, lol. My photo skillz are suffering more than ever it seems.. Here is another try with different lighting: They are very finely detailed and great fun to paint. Thanks for looking and C&C is as always very much appreciated.

    So, these are brand new sculpts, not old figures that we're re-releasing. All new. They're tabbed figures on slotted plastic bases. They're "Heroic Scale", i.e. they're modern gaming scale. Some of the designs are *loosely* based on some of the Heritage Dungeon Dweller miniatures. Each mini is FREE for the first month, but unlike the 25th Anniversary promotion, these minis don't go away. They'll always be for sale. One new figure a month. February's mini will be a fighter/knight/warrior type. March will probably be another monster, followed by a character in April, and so on. Planning on having a special Dungeon Dweller mini or two released at ReaperCon this year. Oh, and just you WAIT until we make a big ReaperCon announcement next week! Buglips: I don't think there will be a bearded devilish fellow in this incarnation of DD. However, you never know. But the more I see your hairy lips the less likely it will happen.

    Really happy how this turned out. The paint job for the mini took about 2 hours while making the base took around 5 (most of which were trying to figure out how to use Green Stuff roller effectively). And I have to thank @Glitterwolf for the tip on the Green Stuff roller. I saw you use one for your jungle diorama and think they are awesome!!

    Hi guys, and Happy New Year! I haven't posted in a bit, gonna try to be better about that. Anywho, here's my latest finish, the Elephant Avatar from the Bones 3 Kickstarter. I started this guy in probably October last year, but kind of lost my mojo on him, and he sat on my shelf of shame for quite awhile. This year, I decided to clear out the shelf of shame, so I finished him up. I'm pretty pleased with him. Let me know what you think! ~Magenta

    Our Own Glitterwolf posted a photo in my Last Hurrah Thread: I loved it. I knew I would have to make a version of my own (there were some liberties taken...a lot of liberties). Once more I had the base all ready for her...or some other hapless miniature. AND here is the result: There you go.

    These are the "Vampire Brides" from Bad Squiddo Games, which last summer came out with a line of Hammer-type horror figures called "My Last Sunrise." They are sculpted by Gus Kearns and were introduced with the tag line "Get married, they said. Best day of your life, they said." WIP thread here.

    I painted Reaper's Dee Dee Astro Girl from the Chronoscope Line, I put her on a resin base and used a little Scale 75 Moonstone Alchemy so it would appear as if she was searching for minerals.

    I really love the sculpting and style of Infinity miniatures. They've got terrific detail on them, and can really lend themselves to almost any composition you'd like. The big mechs are especially lovely minis- here are a few that I've had the chance to do up:

    Got ol Shubbu-Shubbu painted up a while ago, never got around to showing her off. The base has pieces of acritter from Cthulu-Wars, as well as tentacles from Reaper's Creature Components (03334) and a pile of skills from Forge Prints, as well as copious amounts of water effects for slime. Really enjoyed painting this abomination. I based the colors a bit on the Demogorgon from Stranger Things, as the mouth really reminded me of the beast.

    This is the one of two models I needed to complete to be able to call the 2017 Resolutionary Paint Challenge complete. I pulled this model from the last round BoGW. She's a sorceress of of some kind, but I do not know the manufacturer. I want to say the based had something like AEG on it, but I have not been able to locate anything beyond that.

    These are what I finished painting this year, a year that was somewhat abbreviated by world events. Really, this is what I painted in the last six months, since political dismay kept me from the miniatures table for approximately eight months after the last US Presidential election. This year I painted my first Reaper Warlord figures who were also my first oversized werewolves, 77754 the Rageclaw Slayer, and 77755, Aislinn, Shadow Tracker. Nearly everything I painted was for the White Wolf World of Darkness and Exalted.

    I scored these items at the local thrift stores recently! The D&D box set was not only complete with the two books it was supposed to come with, but someone had also shoved in 4 additional modules, I picked the whole thing up for $2 Earlier today i found a bunch of boxes of D&D Chainmail miniature sets! Each box is complete with all the metal minis, cards, maps, et-cetera, and also, someone put extra minis in these boxes too! I got each box for $1 I got Civilization Board Game 100% complete in box for $1 And all these awesome retro video games ranging from $1 to $5 each! All complete! So I only paid $5 for super smash, $1 for ffvii, et-cetera. I also got a complete munchkin deluxe board/card game for $1. Edit: 1/10/18 - found a complete D&D basic rules 1 box set, dice and all, at the local salvation army for $1.
