    Scibor Collection

    I bought a ton of his dwarves for a Frostgrave warband. His sculpts are incredible, and your painting is as well!

    44001: The Snowy Polar Owlbear

    Hey there! It's been quite a while since I've posted here. Things were busy with work around the holidays, and I was unable to do much hobbying besides looking longingly at others' posts and my own collection of unpainted minis. Anyway, 2019 is here, and I'm resolved to get more painting done. What better way to do this than with the inaugural Bones Black model, the Owlbear? I wanted to do something a little different, while practicing some skills that may have grown rusty. I decided on an arctic theme, based off of the Spine Of The World in the Forgotten Realms. I used reference photos of polar bears and snowy owls, and worked up from there. This allowed me to do some wet blending, some layering up, and even some light glazing on the beak and claws. (As a side note, that Coal Black that Reaper gave in the Christmas stockings is a gorgeous blue when you start to lighten it up.) Anyway, thanks for checking this out, and I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! Here's to more minis, more painting, and more time for hobbies in 2019!

    LadyStorm's Winter Contest: Yeti

    Added one to my cart!
  6. Sweet! This is going to be cool!
  7. I just begin by mixing them up very well, and then pouring the majority of the paint into the bottle. I use a small pin as a spoon, scraping what I can as I go. Once most of the paint is out, and it becomes more difficult to do, I put about 10-15 drops of Reaper's flow improver into the pot, close it, and give it a good shake. Then I repeat the first part. Also, the labels come off of GW paint pots very easily, so they can be reapplied to the Reaper bottles.
  8. My phone died completely in the middle of the night, meaning no photos for a few days. (Other than the ones I can take when borrowing my wife's phone.) I did, however, receive my October Reaper order, complete with Ghoulie Bag! I'm currently in the process of transferring my GW paints into Reaper bottles. After this order, I'm about 2/3 finished! Another thing that I just received is the Darkroot Expansion to the Dark Souls boardgame. That should be fun, as the original game is what got me into painting in the first place. Pics and a new phone asap!

    Girl Finds Sword in Lake

    This is how fables are created.
  10. -Paint my first bust. -Finish my D&D group minis. (Two left!) -Build and, if time allows, paint diorama. -Paint at least 3 other minis. -Transfer the rest of my GW paints to Reaper dropper bottles.
  11. I've been wanting to paint a bust since I got back from ReaperCon. I missed my chance to pick up Julie Guthrie's beautiful sculpt from the convention, so I did a bit of research. I had already picked up a larger scale mini from FeR Miniatures at Scale 75's table this year, so I started there. In addition to some more intricately detailed stuff, FeR also had a few busts that seemed a bit more on the simple side, so I grabbed them. They're both in the "Portraits From the Middle Ages" line. I started with this one, the Saxon Huscarl, Hastings, 1066. I started off by doing the face, using Reaper's HD flesh quadrilogy(?) I mixed them to create midtones, but it still came out less smooth than I had hoped. I think it looks ok for a first go, but I definitely have so much room for improvement. I'm definitely going to do a bit of touching up on the face. I did the eyes next, and I really like the way that they turned out! They give him such a ruthless look! After this, I base coated the chainmail in dark grey mixed with some black, and then I left it there for the night. I'm going to try and do the metals as non-metallic, so we'll see how that goes!

    Rampage Dungeon

    I'm so glad that this campaign was not only successful, but every stretch goal was blown out of the dungeon! I ended up boosting a few times, and I went in for a decent amount more than I had originally planned. I absolutely can't wait to get this stuff, and I really can't wait to see the look on my gaming group's faces when I plonk the first room down on the table!

    Pathfinder: Kingmaker

    I'm really digging it. I've been a fan of isometric RPGs since the original Baldur's Gate. (Which is my favorite game of all time, by the way.) I've played all of the other "spiritual successors", such as Pillars of Eternity, Tyranny and Tides of Numenera. So far, Kingmaker FEELS the most like the classic Infinity Engine games. There are a few bugs, sure. Some are hilarious, some are annoying, but I'm confident that they'll be ironed out in the coming months. I'm really digging this so far, and I'm looking forward to continuing. Also, the soundtrack is phenomenal!

    Rampage Dungeon

    I have to say, you are doing a fantastic job with this campaign, and I am so excited for these. This is probably my most anticipated KS since Reaper's own. I started with a humble pledge of $60, but now I have plans for around $600 of stuff. Why, oh why does it have to be so far out! ;D Here's a question for you: What's the super secret evil looking door at the end of the video, and how do I get one?
