    Citrine paints Oathsworn Tiefling Paladin

    Good definition andike the use of bright colours!
  2. I never know when my minis are done but here are the two fighters from the Dungeon Dwellers line, painted as a pair. Am using more and more Scale 75 paints, most of these colours are from their fantasy line with Army Painter washes.

    Bones Black owl bear

    Love owl bears and really like the pudgy but dangerous pose of this one. Although he does look a bit like a flamenco dancer. Really simple brown primer, dark brown rush then Zandri Dust and Ghost Grey (Vallejo Game Colour) highlights.

    Two speed painted mimics from the Wizkids line.

    80031 - Decker Lugstampf

    This is the Bones version of Decker Lugstampf. Am slowly getting into Victorian Sci fi minis as a break from the hundreds of fantasy ones that I have. Could also use him as an enchanter for Frostgrave though... Simply painted with a dark grey primer, black wash, then brass and gun metal highlights.
  6. This is probably a weird one... I would like to see an ogre that has been raised by halflings. So, half a barrel on its head, contented look, eating a cow leg instead of a drum stick. Then, one raised by dwarves. So quite well fitting armour, scary looking axe, but a bandage/bump as he keeps hitting his head. Finally, one raised by elves. Arrogant far away look, pony tail, bow like a child's toy and sword like a dagger, smart robes and armour, but his toes and gut are poking out. All possibly inspired by the films des Steve Martin..

    The mighty Uruk Hai

    I think the red comes out brightly, without being pink or scarlet. In the film obviously they have very very dark brown or very very dark grey skin and black gunmetal armour. Easy to paint but it would look like you just primed them!
  8. Am liking the bloodstone gnomes in Bones 4. It would be good to see more of the Warlord metal gnomes released in Bones or Bones black. Also, the warlord lupins or werewolves look cool and would be brilliant in Bones black.

    The mighty Uruk Hai

    I like the lighter palette on these, they are quite small models aren't they so good idea not just to have blacks gunmetal and greys.

    Dungeon dweller orcs

    Enjoyed painting the single DD orc and brought two more. They are a bit bigger but very much in the same style. Applied the same colour scheme. Am looking out for the remaining two but think they may be limited edition.

    Nippon, Land of the Rising Moon by Glitterwolf

    Understood! I can see the attraction in theming a group even if you don't use them in games. Look at Dixon miniatures (UK company) if they haven't come up on your searches yet, they have a historical and fantasy samurai range.

    Dungeon dweller orcs

    thank you good tip
  13. Converted Gregor the Wizard, who is a druid type character, well wrapped up with a bird as a familiar. I thought the model would look good as a female character and the way the coat bunches up means that a conversion looks OK, in my view. I just cut off the head with a razor saw and swapped it with a reaper bones head for Drys the Dryad. I just stuck it straight onto a blob of green stuff. I didn't need to do much texturing because the beard on the original male model just looks like a scarf following the sawing. The mittened hand holding the bird just got accidentally bent back while I was sawing the head off (is this forum externally monitored?). It wasn't an intentional part of converting. Then a pretty simple paint job, have done the washes in these pics and need to do some basic highlighting and a winter effect on the base.

    Nippon, Land of the Rising Moon by Glitterwolf

    Enjoying following this. Check out "Daisho" by Ministry of Gentlemanly Warfare or "Ronin" by Osprey Games if you are looking for rules. Daisho in particular looks fun and has stats/lists for Japanese fantasy creatures.
  15. Enjoyed painting this chap who reminds me of the old Hero Quest chaos warriors. He will be the Shadow Knight in Rangers of Shadow Deep. Or a proxy for a skinny orphan who runs a market stall... I wouldn't be able to do nmm or similar so fell back on drybrushing and washes. Came out OK.
  16. Brought these 54mm scale Russian plastic toy orcs from ebay (they are by a popular company over there called Tehnolog) and painted them up as ogres. Will use the ogres obviously for d and d but also rangers of Shadow Deep. I need to base them up and also bring up the highlights a touch. I used a black wash on these (not usual sepia or umber browns) as wanted them to look dark rather than muddy.

    54mm toy orcs painted as ogres

    thank you - they are single piece, unbased, and come in a pack of 4 (all different poses( in metallic green plastic. These aren't converted at all. That plastic isn't as bendy as say Reaper Bones or toy soldier plastic. Sometimes the paint started to fleck away but that could just be my primer (Vallejo). I am happy with them. The company does some 30mm ones and also some 'Chibi' style minis. Look on Ebay for "Tehnolog".

    Mantic : Terrain Crate 2 KS

    I didn't prime mine. I think actually you could get away with just drybrushing the wood or applying a wash.

    03792: Krass Omenthrall, Evil Warrior

    Thanks everyone He is quite tall/imposing actually, have had my fingers burnt before in buying Reaper figures that look like they are huge but when you buy them are essentially dwarves.
  20. Made up these market stalls and goods from Mantic Terrain Crate range. There were the well documented problems with the spindly supports to the stalls being completely bent. Hot water didn't fix the bigger stall so I had to stick additional supports on to it as a frame, made from matchsticks and mdf sprues. Enjoyable painting up the tiny goods on display though and overall would still recommend product. Would be interesting to see something like it in Bones.

    The Reapermini Beta site for Europe.

    Used this yesterday, it was really easy to search for things, payments worked well and everything was posted really quickly. Thanks!

    Dungeon dweller orc

    Have painted this chap up for Rangers of Shadow Deep. Am using a mixture of orcs, half orcs, and gnolls for the "gnolls" in the game, mainly to reduce the lead pile. Really like the style of the armour in particular. It reminds me of the Angus Mcbride Lord of the Rings paintings. Am going to get the other 4 orcs so he has some mates.
  23. On the Blood Moon mission/expansion for Rangers of Shadow Deep you have to replace 4 of your companions with NPCs, one of which could be a werewolf... There is also apparently an old man NPC that you might encounter. These are a mix of Fireforge, and Frostgrave plastics. The old man has a Games Workshop head. One issue is that the old soldier is meant to be missing 3 fingers but by cutting them off it just looks like he was interrupted making a six gun gesture...
  24. Vulture on a dead tree.
  25. I found some cardboard boxes in a boat shape online and am turning them into a Cog, a sloop, and a shipwreck. At the moment am just cutting and putting the cardboard structures back together. Once it is all assembled will figure out how to texture it and add detail. In particular I need to think about a mast and about how to show planks along the curved sides. All ideas welcome. Am going to keep it so that the decks come off and allow access to the hold and the cabin. These boxes only cost £3-£3.80 each so it cost about £13 for the raw materials for two ships.
