    Gauntfield the Scarecrow

    Yes, another halloween contest entry. I know Gauntfield has been done before many times, but it is such a cool figure I thought he deserved another appearance. I went for a "more is more" approach with the rich color and contrasts. He ended up pretty much as I had envisioned. Comments or critiques welcome.

    Reaper Online Store Revision

    I'm using Firefox 3.0.3. The handful of items I added this morning is gone. I was logged in when I added them, and am still logged in. Another question. Can we have the option to sort the list either by faction or by item #? My wish list is longer than my arm, and after entering about 25 numbers I see they are going in as I add them, and not sorting numerically. I think it would also be useful to Warlord players to be able to pull up a selected list by faction. Or to separate DHL lists from Chronoscope from Warlord...

    Reaper Online Store Revision

    How long does it keep your wishlist? I added some things yesterday and this morning they are gone. I was hoping this would be something I could keep 'on file' for a long period of time.

    When titans go bad....

    I think it came out well, and the fallen column adds a nice classical feel to the overall piece.

    gone plaid?

    Here are some I did in the past, sorry the pics are not great. I used a "liner" brush and thinned paint. I just took quick strokes, concentrating on getting the raised parts and not worrying about the deep shadows. Work on getting even, thin lines and don't be afraid to pain over areas and re-do it. I find that contrast is needed, in the first pic the white on yellow does not show much. These were challenging because the kilts are not smooth or even, and have stuff all over them breaking up the lines. It's more of a suggestion of plaid than actual plaid, because the lines don't match up as well as you'd think. It really took a lot of planning to place the lines right. Again, don't be afraid to paint over something that didn't come out right.

    Rare Treasures

    Originally made by Heritage, owned by Reaper in their early years, some are now available from Minifigs. Some classic sculpts in that line. I love the ratling and mouseling warriors. http://www.minifigs.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=194_208_195
  7. Here is my entry, cropped and color adjusted, but I left the cat hair in the background for everyone to admire. Happy Halloween!
  8. Just wondering, because it looks like I will be placing a group order for the folks I game with and they are wondering how much money to give me. Knowing in advance makes a difference to some of my unemployed friends. If they are not too expensive, some folks will want multiples.

    New Guy... with Historicals

    Really nice work. Thanks for sharing!

    Wolf from Familiar Pack I

    The only problem I can find with it is it's painted up so nicely that now I have to go find one and paint it too. :)

    Miniatures that are good for Statues

    3. It's a duplicate cast of a figure I have already painted.
  12. Is this a new sculpt or a re-numbering of a single model from one of the multi-packs? http://www.reapermini.com/store/customer/p...cat=0&page=

    No really, I have been painting!

    The only suggestion I have is to get new primer or adjust your spraying technique. It looks like whatever you are using is leaving you with a really gritty surface, which is ruining your lovely paint job.

    Reaper Elven wizard

    Nice choice of colors on this guy, the yellow and red highlights work well. I don't remember this figure, I'll have to check and see if I have it, because suddenly I want to paint it too.

    Justine, Ellen and Sela

    I think your Justine looks very nice, better than mine too. :) There's nice contrast among her cloak, the armor, her face and hair. On Sela Windsprite, however, her face, hair, and monkey all seem to blend together too much. Or maybe it's just the light in this picture. Perhaps brighter highlights in the hair, and darker shadows on the monkey will help.

    Experiment with blues

    Started this a few weeks ago, it's a variant I picked up at Reapercon (the original sculpt was just released). Thought I would play with blues and browns and see how it came out. This is the basecoat: I'm relatively pleased with how the cloak is coming out, it needs more blending, I know. The rest of it is not exciting me very much, and I'm looking for some suggestions on how to make it pop. I don't know what to do with the armor on the sleeves. I'm afraid too much brown will just make the body one dark lump. Or is there too much blue? What can I do to kick this up a notch?

    Crouching Assassin

    I think the cloak looks really nice overall, but in the front that bright green shirt really distracts from the "dark" feel. I think a darker, drabber color would look better. Maybe a blue-grey, or an ocean green-grey would tie in better with the blue pants and dark blue-green of the cloak.

    Parroty feathers

    I think you need darker blue base color for the feathers. Look at pics of real parrots: http://www.skye4birds.com/whalen/jardy3.htm http://www.pbase.com/brandyk/image/56967228 http://farm1.static.flickr.com/153/4089014...c799416.jpg?v=0 http://www.peacocksforever.com/parrotf.htm

    Kara Foehunter, sexy female dwarf

    Looks like you got a good start on her. Hope to see some nice pics when she is finished.

    Miniature Couch or Sofa?

    <quote>What is this 'shadowbox' you speak of? </quote> These are small objects sold for use in displays or dioramas. They are not made in any particular scale (such as the 1:12 dollhouse scale) so they can be almost any small size. You will find them in craft stores like Hobby Lobby and Michael's in the dollhouse department.

    Experiment with blues

    Mamageek, thanks for the tip. It's a digital, and I was too close to the mini because I was tired and in a hurry. Paintminion, thanks for the comments. The flash really brightens the cloak lining. I will try more black. There's already a black wash over the blue, but it's not coming through. I don't know what the armor on the sleeves is supposed to be. It kind of looks like a cloth or leather sleeve with plates on it, but I don't know if they are supposed to be leather or metal. Then he's got gloves with a plate thingy on the back of the hand. If my wrist continues to not hurt tomorrow I will try painting some more next week.

    Experiment with blues

    Thank you for your response. I worked on it some last night, but did not get very far. Old wrist injury is starting to become a problem again. I got some highlights on the pants, and on the brown leather, and washed the boots and the rope with brown ink. It's far from being done, and I will work with your suggestions later in the week if time permits.

    Very nice. I am working on a couple halflings, too, and they are a bugger to get the tiny detail on.
