    I've been working on these two for a very long time. Well over a year I think. It's nice to finally get them off the paint table and into the display cabinet.

    After getting totally inspired and having the day off work today, I was able to kick out the Deadpool bust! I wanted it as close to the comics and movie as possible, so I went for a super shiny look and actually spray coated it in gloss, it looks a lot better in person than I was able to capture in the pics, but the pics aren't horrible. WIP thread is located here. C&C are welcomed and appreciated.

    I rarely see this mini painted. I can't imagine why, it's a great sculpt. Anyway this is my version of Adowyn and Leryn.

    Evilhalfling was my exchange recipient for the Spring Exchange. He asked for something with an Asian flair. I chose two minis to paint for him. O-Sayumi was the first mini I picked out. I mean come on, how do you pass up such a great mini? I did some research on geishas - their makeup, the kimonos, their culture, etc. Very fun to learn new things! Her kimono pattern is based on one I liked while doing a Google search. Since Evilhalfling mentioned he might be using the minis in a game, I put little magnets on the bottoms and made a base that either of them can be displayed on. It is my first wooden plinth and my first resin pour. I am afraid it shows but I still think it turned out pretty well. There is a little koi fish in the pool, a couple lily pads I made, a lotus flower, and a tiny frog on a lily pad. (I guess the frog jumped off during transit. ) This is the first time I have posted photos since the board change. Is there no longer a preview button?

    Angelica is finally finished. I went back to my WIP thread, and I realized I started her over a year ago. She has been sitting on my desk waiting to be based for a while now. I decided to go with a relatively simple base. I really enjoyed painter her up.. I hope you enjoy seeing her finished up. I certainly do. Thanks for looking and any C&C you feel to give.

    1st off, this guy is difficult to find key words for when looking him up in Reapers miniatures sale pages. Dragon Warrior doesn't pull him up, neither does dragonkin, half dragon or lizard warrior ( most of which pull up a lot of models in the same class.) If the sales are low, it may be because he is hard to know he exists. Originally he was going to be a good D&D dragon, most likely gold. Then coincidentally a friend wanted a bunch of bad half dragons for a campaign and I mentioned I had just picked this one up. He wanted each a different color and this one was going to be either white or blue. White was tough and the sculpt made it even tougher. I really had to jam the paintbrush in a lot of crevasses and create a few painted up scales that I felt were missing. In the end I am proud of this one. White is tough and he was the first small model I have painted since knocking out a couple of very large balefire gates for a friends GW table. This site has a new look since I have last been on. I will have to look around if I have the time today.

    Hello all, Probably one of the first bones mini i bought (it came in a kickstarter lot) and one I was longing to paint. Job done, in a kinda dark theme but overall happy about the result. Let me know what you guys think! Cheers

    Hi I sculpted miniature of my dog, and painted miniature today. Now Myszkin is going to slay monsters in d&d. I was wandering which race will be best in d&d 4.0 for him(maybe dragon born?- he has very deadly blasts after he ate grass in garden). His head is from fimo, skeleton from green stuff and rest is from beesputty(for me best putty to sculpt, very easy to play with) Real Myshkin: D&d Myszkin:

    I finally finished Death Dealer 1 from Bronze Age Miniatures after putting off the horse due to hating to paint black...but I think it came out well. I will be working on another of these official Frazetta Death Dealers soon!

    So just finished this one up last night, Artemis from the most recent Kickstarter of Crocodile Games, sculpted by Chris FitzPatrick. Not adding any pictures from behind as don't want to violate any policies on unclothedness, hopefully the pictures I chose were all right. So really enjoyed painting this one up, as there was very little metal I had to worry about. Actually the most difficult or time consuming part on this one was the straps on her sandals and then the design on her cloak which was not freehand but actually sculpted on to the cloak. Overall very nice figure I think to paint and it's a nice larger scale, so the face and eyes were pretty easy to work on. Enjoy!

    One of my players bought this figure to represent her sylvan druid. She wanted her painted like a Sylvari from Guild Wars 2. I used her description from her backstory to determine her skin, hair, and eye colors. She said she thought Lily would wear "natural" colored clothing. I initially thought greens with some purples (my favorite colors) but with her hair being bright green as requested, I didn't think green leaves would show up in her hair. I decided to go with autumn leaves for her hair and wrists. When deciding on how to do her clothes, I thought of doing them like an autumn leaf. Her corset/vest and her sandals were painted bootstrap brown but when I used brown ink over it, it made it look like red leather. I really liked how it turned out a lot! I am so bad about finishing painting a figure and wanting to move on to painting the next. I have to make myself base things. A local guy here was advertising some leaf punches so I bought some from him to create leaves for the base. I painted them up in autumn colors and added them to the base. I painted a little Monarch butterfly and put it on her raised hand. The only thing I am not totally happy with is the staff/spear/whatever it is. I want to paint this figure again for myself and if/when I do, I will be modifying it and getting rid of the staff. She's a little shiny because I haven't sprayed her with Dulcote yet. C&C welcome! Thanks for looking!

    77034: Kieran Tallowmire, Wizard, by Bobby Jackson Here's another wizard from one or other of the Bones Kickstarters. I've had him sitting on my work-table for ages, and I thought I'd better get him out of the way.

    Hi all, this is the first bones mini that I've painted, thought I'd share it here. Feedback welcome. I haven't been painting for long and have only a few old paints I inherited from a friend. I did the base coat using an old citadel foundation paint which seemed to go on OK, with only minimal beading that was easily fixed up with a second coat. Overall it was a nice figure to work with and I look forward to painting more bones minis. (Maybe the next kickstarter?) Also first time I've tried taking a proper photo of a mini, using the guide from this very forum. I think it turned out OK, although there is a bit of glare in some places. Thanks for looking

    Here's the start of a Harlequin force that I painted up for a client just a little while ago. This is the third full army of Harlequins I've painted, and each has had a very distinct and different color scheme concept. I really love doing Harlequin characters- the patterns are a lot of fun. For this particular group, I kept the color pallet under fairly tight on each of them in particular- so the whole group doesn't get too crazy.

    Who doesn't like a Kobold? The sculpts are amazing. Incredible detail for such wee little pieces. I started painting these a while back, and just finished the kobold wizard this morning. I hope you like them!

    So I had to paint this real quick for tomorrow's game of "this is not a test". The guy who plays the raider faction has a group that worship Disney and last week he found a suit of powered armor so I figured it should have a buzz light year theme. Hope you like my first speed paint in awhile. I already had the back pack assembled and some base colors down before I started

    I've painted this figure before — I got two of them in one or other of the Bones Kickstarters. Both of them ended up with decidedly unhappy facial expressions, but of the two this is the one that looks the least trustworthy. He really seems to be holding a grudge against his exploitative employers, and no wonder.

    Hello everyone! Just started to paint miniatures, and wanted to show my miniatures here to get some opinions :) I have bought the Learn to Paint kits, and I must admit that I am hooked. I started off by painting the Skeleton Archer from the LTPK. And painted these afterwards. Need to work on my washing.. But overall i'm pleased 77031: Cassie, Gnome Wizard 2x 89003: Pathfinder Goblin Warriors Miriliton Beholder

    I don't usually post my non-Reaper minis here, but I wanted to share this one with you all. This is Princess Malya, Questing Knight and her cypher Mr. Tomm from Relic Knights. She was the first of the new resin minis from Soda Pop Miniatures that I got my hands on, and is a beautiful sculpt and was fun to paint. I agonized over the last little bit, and between never getting to play Relic Knights and this model’s rules being garbage, she slept on the shelf of shame, waiting for her Prince Charming to show up. I finally finished her off last month, so she can join Mr. Tomm, who’s been done for a year now. In case the inspiration isn’t obvious, I’ve based her paint job on Alice from Disney’s Alice in Wonderland. The base is one of my favorite parts, and I love how it came out – you can even see a bit of reflection in some shots. I definitely got fed up with the dress at points, and just had to leave it in order to move on, but overall am fairly happy. The white in particular, I probably could have redone it using some of the tips from Jen Greenwald’s class that I took last year.

    This started when I found fishmen bodies in the trade-in bin at Reapercon. Thanks to everyone who helped me search for hours for the arms. I completely forgot that they had detached tails as well and ended up sculpting some very poor imitations when I got home. Went through the bits box and gave the two big guys some added weapons, one has a sword, the other a magic staff topped with a chunk of coral. Dug out some Bones from one of the KS to add to the mix. Their names are War, Pestilence, Famine, Death, and Bad Gumbo. I finished painting them in December, but just got the bases done this weekend.

    I painted this as a gift for a good friend who loves the Easter Bunny and adventuring (she loved it!). A little reindeer moss and some colored ground foam from my model railroad foliage and the bunny is ready for a quest. I took a lot of inspiration from Jessica Rich's studio paint job. The variety of bright colors was a lot of fun.

    Evilhalfling was my exchange recipient for the Spring Exchange. He asked for something with an Asian flair. I thought this guy had a lot of character and would be fun to paint. I was right....mostly! He had a little metal bump on his right eye that I didn't know was there until I was painting eyes. It kept catching the paint and making him look cross eyed no matter how many times I tried to fix it. So....he got a gnarly scar and a blind eye! That'll teach him! I put a little magnet on the bottom so he can be swapped out with O-Sayumi (the other mini I painted) on the little display base. I wanted to do some freehand on his coat but I couldn't find a pattern or design that I liked and thought I could pull off. He did get a tiny Yin Yang symbol on his belt though! His monkey is a Chinese Golden Monkey.

    I am working on an idea for a fantasy miniatures campaign, and needed some sort of area movement map which would match the proposed forces. I have Jared Blando's book How to Draw Fantasy Art and RPG Maps, which formed the basis of my method. Since I'm not much of an artist, I kept it to the simple end of what he shows. In a perfect world, I would probably have penciled the whole thing and then inked it, but I'm not a patient guy. . So I worked it in stages. Here's the completed piece, ready to laminate for game use. Working with watercolors (a cheap set) was interesting; the techniques are different enough from what I'm used to in acrylics that I ended up with some unfixable oopses, but it will do for what I need, which is to use for game background...

    So just got done painting some more old school Ral Partha classics, this time a set sculpted by Dennis Mize in 1996 (if you believe the bottom of the base) called Dark Divide, which was based on a Larry Elmore painting: My original thought was to actually paint it a little more faithfully to the original colors, but I ended up doing the gal's dress in green instead of pink and I made the vampire a lot more pale than he was in the painting. Being that the painting shows them being inside, I also just did a very generic bland base, instead of it being outside with dirt and grass, or even by making them over cobblestones or something similar. After seeing how he came out in the photos, I'm not overly happy with the armor for the warrior, but oh well, not going to change it now. I was going to take these pictures yesterday, but I've been using natural light any more to take photos with and it was so cloudy and rainy yesterday that I just couldn't get a decent photo. Anyhow, great fun to paint, pretty simple models, hope you all enjoy!

    I haven't posted anything here in awhile, so I thought I would fix that. I've had Aviriel since the first kickstarter, and finally decided to paint her as a gift for a friend. The shield was definitely my favorite part to paint, though I didn't get the blends quite as smooth as I would have liked on the gold there.

    Hi, Here is my take on the Reaper Chimera in Bones. Mine was pretty wonky and wasn't responding well to boiling water, but I still like the sculpt very much. I re-based the mini on a 50*50mm square in order to use it as a "Beast of Nature" for my "Kings Of War - Forces of Nature" army. Paint job is my standard army quality, but I had some fun on the base with some putty and water effects. I'm trying to get most of the bases in this army to be a bit scenic.

    I picked this guy up at ReaperCon a few years ago, got him to about 90% then left him for a while. I wanted to do NMM on the gun barrels, but decided that enough was enough and finished him while on vacation last month. My favorite part is the crazy eyes. Usually a simple black dot in the center of a white eye is wrong, but here it’s right :)

    i finally finished deathsleet, which i painted as a green for lost mines of phandelver. this was my first large model, and i made every mistake one can make on a large model. it was a good learning experience, though. before someone mentions it, i have yet to properly base anything i've painted since i came back to the hobby. i'll get around to it when it when i finally paint something i really like, which may be down the road a bit. no doubt i'll need plenty of advice when i get to that point, but for now i'll content myself with just ruining models. c&c welcome, of course.

    This was started as a small-ish side project, but ended up being a big-ish project. With a lot of new things for me. The ghost is an old mini that I painted many years ago, and was quite happy with at the moment. And as I started up in this hoppy again, I thought I might build a base for it. I wanted it to look dark or low-light, so used a bit darker colors as I would normally have used, but I still wanted to use colors. I'm really happy with the result, I think it's the best piece of landscape I have made. And I learned a couple new things. A big thanks to all that commented and came with ideas and helpfull tips throughout the process. The Wip thread is here. Figures used; The Ghost: I think it is an Ral Partha, as most of my minies from back then seems to be, or does anyone recognise it? Skeleton: 77018 Reaper Skeleton Archer set, converted. Skulls and grave stones: Ristuls. Vegetation: Army Painter turfts, Noch and some home-made from an old brush. Tutorials more or less followed; Hanging moss on the tree: http://laughingferret.blogspot.com.au/2011/04/to-z-spanish-hanging-moss-tutorial.html A lot of good stuff: https://daggerandbrush.wordpress.com/

    I bought the Mother of Dragons bust at Reapercon last year initially with the idea of painting it up for my dad (who is supportive of my painting but ambivalent towards painted miniatures in general) as a present since he loves Game of Thrones. But, I just couldn't get in to painting it as Daenerys. It didn't click. So, dad will have to wait for me to find something equally cool. Although I did buy him some of those charity water-dot-org chalices which I'm thinking he'll like better anyway... plus charity! And beer! Right, at any rate, I've realized something about my painting. I'm not satisfied with my skill set. I always want to add to it or work on something new or learn different technique. Otherwise I feel bored and I can't get motivated to paint. So, in my never-ending quest to expand my mind and go all Neo on this bust, I'm tackling darker skin. It's something I am not good at... yet! But, I also wanted to play with the platinum blonde Daenerys hair since it's also new to me. Blonde is not intuitive and I have to think when I paint it. ...and we all know what dark skin plus white hair means... So, I went in search of inspiration. Khoudia Diop is just gorgeous. I loooooove her skin. Hints of purple and red... beautiful! Now this pic I like for the frontal lighting reference but her skin looks much browner. You can still see the purple, but it's more muted. So I'll go with the lighting on the second and the color from the first. I picked my colors and am documenting them so in three months when I get around to working on this again I won't forget! I couldn't find my ghost white when I started painting so I settled on spectral white. And I'm glad I did. It kept with the theme of the purple. I did find the ghost white later, never fear. So, when I paint skin on a bust, I have a huge surface area to work with. Which means I can add a whole lotta depth of color. I can glaze different shades in to my heart's content. I think this is some of what makes skin look more realistic. I've said it before but it never hurts to reiterate- skin is all about layering. Underneath skin lie bones, tendons, muscles, fat, vessels, nerves finally covered by layers upon layers of translucent cells. Which means there's a huge variety of colors in skin itself, not to mention any shadows or light cast upon it. I like using the photo reference because it makes me really look and see where the colors are and where to put all my highlights and shadows. When I basecoat my skin I wet blend. Basically, I take my paint, mix it to about what shade I want and apply, adding a few areas of dark and light to get a sense of the form and the volume. Since I couldn't pick one color to match Khoudia's skin I mixed a bit of the mahogany with the dark elf skin and the nightshade purple. I used a big brush. I have a #6 series 36 (the cheaper ones) Davinci just for big projects like this. Once I got the base down I switched back to my #1. Oh, and I forgot- I sanded the resin bust USING MY N-95 PROTECTIVE MASK, glued the head and the support on (waiting on the hair, etc until I get father) and washed the while thing with dish soap. I filled in a few areas with greenstuff and primed it with reaper brush on primer. Here's me working on figuring out where the highlights go. Faces have planes that form geometric shapes like circles and triangles. Get these highlighted early and it really guides painting later on. I added a bit of the oiled leather in with the spectral white to keep it on the warm side. notice how I may blend a bit, but I'm focusing more on shape. I can always blend later. Besides, the more layers I use, the more realistic the skin looks. And I might earn my 1K Layering Achievement Badge. If only that existed... Not sure I like the eyes. Not sure what color eyes I want but they were just staring at me. I wanted something different that would stand out. Meh. I'll think about it. I used brilliant blue with the spectral white for reference. h ugh, focus off on that one. I glazed in a bunch of the mahogany brown to de-purple-ize the skin. It was getting a bit purple. I also want to have the left side of the photo (right side of the face) be darker since the head is tilted to the side. So I used more brown and less highlight on that side. I put a hint on pink in the lower lip as well as the tear ducts in keeping with anatomy and all that. In typical Corporea fashion I took a break from skin and played with the hair. I had a hard time figuring out the colors for it. I almost used the ghost white, but settled on a warmth using the oiled leather and some linen white with the dark elf skin as a shadow. The three mixed together make this lovely gray. So, that's where I am right now. Hmmn... maybe about 4 hours of work I think, With a few Skyrim breaks here and there. She still needs more red and brown. Waaaay too purple. But that's for next time! Hooray!!!

    So.... Last Decemeber while I was Xmas shopping for the pets, I ran across an AKC chew toy platypus... And, Being me, I knew that it was a DrowcedentTM in the making.... So my daughter Alsnia, knitted the scarf, we mad the hat from blue insulation foam and putty, and I did the monocle from a split ring for keys, a piece of jewelry chain, and some blister plastic. I sewed everything in place, (Be careful of the stitching!!!! as I am out of practice...) and hot glued the hat on... And it was delivered today, and I just got a pm from pcktlnt, so I can show him off now! We need to have a gathering of plushies at Reapercon this year....

    My most ambitious project to date, Narthrax was a fun little challenge for me over the last couple of weeks. My son wanted him to be black, so after I based him in Stormy Grey, I mixed up 3 parts each Adamantine Black and Imperial Purple with a single drop of Pure Black (then repeated it several times!). For the undersides of the wings, I replaced the Imperial Purple with Ruby Red - and did the same for his main back-spikes and horns. I went too far down his tail with the reddened segments and after realizing that it just didn't look right, thought I had successfully covered it up - but from the backside picture, I can see a distinct reddish hue to the top of the upper tail.. I also think I need to touch up the foot-pads and perhaps the trailing-edge bone tips on the wings with - they looked nice with just the Stormy Grey, but the camera is making me second guess that thought..

    I've been painting a lot lately, but not posting so much. Time to fix that (the posting, not the painting)! I finished this antipaladin a while ago, but hadn't posted him to show off yet. So here he is: I decided to go with a rich color scheme, incorporating red, brown, bone, and three different colored metallics: steel with black, steel with brown, and gold with brown. I'm quite happy with how it all turned out. For the base, I used a technique that I learned from James Wappel's blog (wow, that guy is prolific). I made a round disc out of sculpey, and carved it with the sigil of an evil deity. Then I baked it, and after baking snapped it into pieces. It gives it a nice natural broken stone look, and I got three bases for the price of one! So now I just need to find two other evil characters to populate the other bases. I also used this mini to try out a new mini photography technique, a turntable that I made myself. I included a few details of how I did it in this old forum thread. This allows me to make nice 360 degree animations. I like the way it is able to show the shifting highlights on the metals; it's something you really don't capture with still photos. And the new forum can embed them directly. Cool! Following a suggestion from Cranky Dog, I also made a 3D version. It could still be improved, but I think the technique shows promise. Here are instructions for viewing: Hold your finger close to your screen, in the middle between the two images. Slowly bring your finger toward your nose, keeping your focus on your finger. At some point the two images in the background will merge into one. Shift your focus to the image on the screen, and behold the miracle of 3D! Laugh at all those suckers who wasted hundreds of dollars on fancy VR headsets. Please let me know whether the effect works for you! It took me a few tries to properly view it, but it becomes easier with practice.

    Here's another gaming standard model I just finished. It was a really fast paint job with colors that were already on my palette for another project. This model has been sitting on my desk staring at me for almost 3 years, and I finally decided to paint her. Originally I bought her because I love the sculpt, but after I primed her I was a bit intimidated to paint her. I had only been painting a little over a year at that point, so I found a lot of things intimidating. Even though I ended up giving her only a quick paint job, I'm happy with how she turned out. I took this opportunity to try to learn how to paint a see through object on top of another object (the bottle on her side). I think that still needs work. From some angles I think it looks basically right, but from behind it looks odd.

    Hi all, after much lurking I've decided to post some of my minis I technically posted once before but I just realized looking at the old post that it was over a year ago! I'm really going to have to pick up my painting rate given that another bones pledge is about to be delivered! So I can definitely tell I like painting the bad guys better than the PC characters, probably due to spending too much time DMing. Anyway, here's some recent ones I painted. As always feedback is appreciated! First a couple beastmen from the Warlord line: How about a golem and some undead as tomb guardians? I diced up a skeleton into the base of the bone fiend too. You can kind of see the boot. I have painted some character figures as well recently. Here's a few Elves with an Halfling. I need to work on my faces more though. Humanoid faces are so much flatter than monsters'. Anyone have any tips for varying humanoid flesh or adding details to faces that that sculp might not define well? Thanks! Much appreciated!

    I saw the Mr posted his project today so as I was off work I too "got to work" too. So I pushed this project ahead of schedule. If I kept pushing it back then Id procrastinate and it would neve As usual, I had an idea. It was a shared idea for a personal project that I wanted to do. It embodied simultaneously the use of actual airbrushing, OSL on a bigger level that In comfortable with, more water effects with hopefully less drama and sculpting. So, I give you, the first steps to the Destroyer of Worlds. Theres a reason for the flourescent color, I promise. I still jad sunlight in the office so painting it was great. While that was drying I started on the base by applying a thick layer of water effects to cover the treasure. Then I rotated back to the dragon, increasing the intensity of the reds. Moar RED!!! Close enough for now. For now.........ill admit I was an idiot and I went back over my base with black primer and highlighted in white. We'll see how it cures tomorrow. @_@ Now the painful part, my sculpting. Its not great but I do intend to go over it again tomorrow and peel back the middle part a little bit as I intend to do something more with thr chest. I am starting to see my idea unfold though. I had some black primer left in my airbrush so I did a test on the scales to see if my idea will work. Yeppp and it cut my work down by 40%. I'm still going to paint each scale individually but a portion of my goal is completed. Maybe Ill actually have this done before October. @_@ Maybe. I don't want to think about the wings just yet.

    I've always looked at Sir ForScales stance as if he is limping into the final fray of the battle. There is something almost limpy about his stance. I've been saving this one for a while, but I saw a post a few days back with someone that had strong corrosion and rust effects on the the miniature, Deckard (i think) which looked awesome. and i thought. Hey!? I know i'm only beginning but i wonder if i could do similar and it turns out, i'm not as good. Buut.. It's still pretty effective. In my humble opinion. If you've ever seen the 80's movie Excalibur, I was trying to get the effect of the Grail Knights Armour that was just so totally rusted and abused that it barely looked like metal anymore. I wasn't overly happy until i started adding the blood effects seeping through the cracks in the Armour. And so.. without further adieu I give you SirPleaseJustKillmeForScale. Please excuse my photography, apparently my phone is a potato. Cheers, Christopher
