    My secret Sophie recipient was Corporea! Since she is someone who's work I admire and find both excellent and entertaining, i wanted to do something that was fun and a little weird. I had a couple of priests remaining from a previous diorama and the crypt sarcophagus fell in my lap while I was contemplating ideas and an idea was born. I also have been playing with incorporating lights into my miniatures (my christmas village is a dwarven forge village with mini LED lights strung throughout it.) but what to have rising out of the crypt. Then it hit me, the best shock a priest who thinks he's raising a dark spirit could get is cuteness. and so i added a ninja pony from Impact to the mix. With that here are the pictures of the piece that I sent to live in Corporea's house: And here is the piece with the lighting on. it actually flickers through 5 colors doing a slow pulse then a fast pulse. Happy Holidays to everyone and I hope you enjoy the piece. C&C always welcome. Sorry if some of the depth is a little out of focus, I am still trying to get used to handling a manual adjustment camera again.

    Wizards of the Coast's Dungeons & Dragons Fire Giant Stalking the Steps This 25mm scale Fire Giant isn't humongous by today's miniature line standards but he has a lot of character. The sculptors, Chaz Elliot and then apprentice, Jason Wiebe, put a lot of great detail into this fellow. I personally love the knowing grin on his face. However, partly because of the scale and the sculpted position of the giant, I felt he wasn't set up right. So he was reposed a smidge. When I first looked him over at the work table, I held him on a slab of slate and tried to visualize him on a game board. It's fairly obvious that he was originally meant to be looking down at the puny humans before him but against the more prolific 28-32mm scale miniatures I own, he was looking at their chests or groins. So after playing around with slate pieces such, I finally figure him out. He needed his sword level. Well his arms were tight to his chest so repositioning the weapon that way would require practically resculpting him. But ... if I cut apart the integral base and and changed the elevation of his feet he looked like he was slinking up some stairs. Thus the step and repose. You can check out his painting WIP. The repositioning and base construction was done a long time ago before I was doing WIP posts. Enjoy. Added to Thrym's General Show Off List

    Well, it took me long enough but I finally finished painting an entire board game's worth of minis. The final minis I painted were a cluster of Space Bugs! Thematic paint used - Hazard Yellow for the eyes. And, since I finally painted all the minis, here they all are (well, at least one of each) for a group photo. Time to get this to the table.

    Since I tossed a vacation into the middle of working on this mini, it has been a tough time getting back to it. I usually love all things Dark Sword; however the assembly of this mini left a LOT to be desired. The arms and shield were next to impossible. Once some pre-painting, and the shield was in place things moved along better. It became a great deal of fun by the end. I tried to keep the basing simple, I want the attention going to the "Brave Cat", and his display of emotion. So here is Brave Sir Robin - Scaredy Cat. Your comments, critiques, and likes are solicited, and appreciated. Jay Here are some photos:

    It started last year, when stonehaven offered a feathered dinosaur and a frog knight. I decided to make a diorama of one of my wife's fav jokes. Since it involved a library, it would be perfect for her to keep on her desk at work. the frog knight didn't work out, so I got a different frog from reaper. I got as far as priming, and starting a base-coat on the "chicken". In December, kicked the project into high gear. WIP The Joke

    Last night (12/19/2016) I was hanging out in the Reaper Google Hangouts. I've been wanting to do another variation on this particular piece, kind of a Frost Troll bit. So, I grabbed my brushes and set out to create a chilling version of the Cave Troll. Overall, I am super pleased with how he came out. Again, I am trying to get away from relying heavily on premade washes, and instead trying to layer more. This my first attempt at so much skin (albeit blue not flesh tone) and using layering. I think it came out well. The loin cloth was my attempt at making a "skin" type loin cloth, not just some treated leather. I was going for a fleshy tone. Special thanks to Guindyloo for her advice on how to go about trying to get the look I wanted. The base is just the regular base, but I put down static grass first, then covered it with snow. I like how it came out. Thanks for looking, and as always, C&C are welcomed. CAH

    Is it me or are we just in the "are we there yet?" part of these trip. Look I want the bones3 as much as any man or woman but Reaper is waiting on China, they said as much. Wait until when? They are not sure.... Ok? Move on nothing to see here. If you doubt their ability to deliver, than you missed the last 2 bones KS. My advice is to forget about it and celebrate the large surprise when its on your doorstep. AJ

    well here is my Dragon's Don't share miniature. This has been on my shelf waiting to be finished way too long. I probably didn't do the miniature justice but i needed to finish this piece. I also didn't like the wings that came with the miniature so i took a set of wings from EbonWrath and sculpted them onto the dragon to give him a broader feel and to add a sense of overshadowing for the dwarven thief, sort of a: There is no escape feeling. Make what you will of him. Right now he is just about the pinnacle of my skills and he took forever for me to get to where I liked the blending on the scales. my stalled work in progress for the piece, which does detail the modeling but then stalled over pictures of painting, can be found here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59054-10003-dragons-dont-share/ I hope you all enjoy him, my photography really does not do the miniature justice

    He's just another grumpy old elf who sold his soul to the devil. Today, he's grumpy because his favorite scroll looks like it has blood splatters instead of the runes he thought he put on it last week and his staff is bent..

    I was tasked with painting up a little ceramic puppy statue- but I couldn’t help but think it looked like Barong. Especially the way he is portrayed in the Persona games. So, that’s the direction I took him in. The basing is all my construction (it is based on images of Balinese bridges). Anyway, here he is:

    Shouldn't Bones IV be "The Long Walk Home" (The Journey Home)? I mean, Bones III was "The Search for Mr. Bones" (The Search for Spock), so it only makes sense.

    ...there you go. Losing the piece could very well be more fun than painting it. I was thinking of taking a pic of the arm with some blood stains. I had thought it might have landed on the floor or behind, under or in the paint racks. SO I moved them. The one rack &, to a lesser extent, the second rack, ejected the paints in the move. I wound up reorganizing the bunch...I found a few cool colors I didn't remember having...good things come from bad.

    Kickstarter has made Chinese manufacturing too transparent and yet not transparent enough. A little information is a dangerous thing.

    My paint set arrived along with the 5 other paints to hit free shipping. Paints were cold due to temperature but nothing seems out of the ordinary. <3 to the person who fulfilled my little request. Nice little happiness after 12 hours of work. :D

    Received today! Iron Wind Metal's Kickstarter for Ral Partha's Chaos Wars I just went in for the Vampire Queen. She is really tiny. It's been awhile since I've purchase 25mm minis & such. I probably will keep her sealed & just hang it on the wall. It does have a limited edition card & such behind the mini.

    Not sure about the summoning circle being Gallifreyan...just Googled 'Gallifreyan' on images, and you're right, I must have been channeling The Doctor when I sculpted it ...I engraved a pentagram, then added astrological symbols representing the Earth, the Moon and the Sun. The centre section is removable too, I've made an altar and a bubbling pool to complete the set...oh and talking about saying 'Oathsworn', I've engraved Elder Futhark runes on the standing stones which spell out 'Oathsworn'...so cool! Wasn't sure if I could do it when I had the idea because Oathsworn is 9 letters long and I really wanted to use 8 stones, but then I discovered that in the Elder Futhark the 'T' and 'H' are a single letter (the 'Thorn') so I was well chuffed
