    77306, Translucent Slimes

    Like if it was not enough, a hideous green slime and a bright ochre jelly ooze down the walls of the cave where you have established camp for the night. Their many pulsating excrescences increases their disgusting infectious aspect. They both clearly avoid the light radiating from your improvised campfire, but still the yellow one slowly crawls towards you. The greenish atrocity is only lifting itself in a misshapen column that whips the air without precise direction. You understand the threat while moving closer to you, the amoeba jelly dissolve an empty leather quiver that you left on the ground. Here are the 77306, Translucent Slimes Dark Heaven Bones sculpted by Kevin Williams. I painted them using only yellow and green ink.

    02756, Familiar Pack IV Imp

    At the center of the summoning pentagram, a short humanoid materializes in a cloud of steam. You haven’t cast any spell or summon any creature but he’s there, standing still, staring at you with his malicious eyes. Dark red skin, two feet tall, with sharp pointy horns, bat-like wings and a barbed tail. This creature is the embodiment of a devil like you pictured them according to the tales you heard in your childhood. He’s holding its tail with one hand, and lazily starts balancing the tip of it from side to side. After a moment, the fiendish imp talks to you and offer you to make a deal. With a seducing voice, he says, I can fulfill one of you wish if you accept to do me a favor... Here it is 02756, Familiar Pack IV Imp a pewter Dark Heaven Legends model. Sorry I coundn't find the name of sculptor.

    07001, Rictus the Undying

    Here's 07001, Rictus the Undying from Reaper's Dungeon Dwellers Special Edition Figures sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. I'm curently running "The Vanishing Blackguard" adventure so get ready to see a load of painted models in the next couple of weeks. Sir Rictur is the main evil character in "The Vanishing Blackguard" adventure for 4-6 characters of levels 3-5 by Joseph C. Wolf. Check out the free Vanishing Blackguard.pdf adventure on Reaper's website.

    07001, Rictus the Undying

    Many colors, I usually start with a 09272 Graveyard Bone or 09275 Vampiric Skin or 09435 Skeleton Bone basecoat. I apply a brown wash then highlight with 09273 Splintered Bone. I finish by adding 09031 Tanned Leather or other color highlight to contrast with the color of the armor or surrounding colors. The 09791, Neutral Bone Colors is a perfect starter kit. The 09792, Vampiric Skintones Colors can also do a great job for skeleton. On skeletons, the wash is essential to help create the shadows. On Rictus, I repainted the teeth with a glase of 09273 Splintered Bone after applying the yellowish highlight on the skull. There is also a free tutorial on painting Rictus at the bottom of this page.https://www.reapermini.com/DungeonDwellers I hope it will help.

    Thanks @Hibou, I'm glad you like both. Sounds like a lot of fun. I'd like to see it posted on the forum when you're done.

    02756, Familiar Pack IV Imp

    Thanks for your comments, I really appreciate it. I've been posting daily since a month and I had a very good time reading your feedbacks. I'll be away for a while, working on bigger projects. Some of you may have seen my Viridius Wip, which is the main project. I also plan to paint a giant for Reaper's Facebook contest and I'm working on a small tutorial on using ink to speed up painting tabletop models. That's not all, this week I received twenty Cat Critters from Dark Sword Miniatures. These guys are awesome, they were kind enough to include two give away models in the order. As you can imagine, it will take me some time to paint all these models. I think my end of year will be quite busy. I plan to display all the Cat Critters on a diorama display base. Since there is a King Richard the Lion in the batch, I thought of a throne room to display them. It will have to be a large diorama, wait a throne room... I'm crazy. On this, farewell my friends, we talk soon.

    Cool setup. I like the floats idea and the workstation, it creates a great storytelling scene.

    Thank you for your comments. I've also painted a pewter version of the ocher jelly some time ago. It really looks different indeed, I had a lot of fun painting the metal version since it was a good surface to practice gradient. Here are pictures of both version side by side.

    These are some cool conversion and I like the variety of skin tones.

    77428, Vermin Tick

    As you continue your descent even deeper into the bowels of the earth, you learn that it's not only the huge monsters that are to be feared. While you are sleeping, after your watch shift, a creature drops silently next to you. Without you realizing it, it manages to sting you right on the neck and starts to suck you blood. Sometime later, you woke up with an intense pain on the back of your neck. You realize with disgust what happened. Your wound is infected, and you feel very weak. After examining, your companions realize that you are infected with a serious illness. If you are not treated quickly, you will certainly die within the next few days. Here's the 77428, Vermin Tick, a Dark Heaven Bones sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

    10021, Viridius WIP

    It's been years I painted my last Dragon so I decided this year is going to be Viridius's turn. I just love that Dragon. I think it's the second biggest pewter Reaper Dragon 10009, T’Raukzul being heavier. After spending nine hours cleaning it, I started assembling the legs and head in an extreme pinning session. I'm using nails to pin the parts together along with a decent amount of two part epoxy glue. The nails are 1/8 inch (3mm) in diameter. I'm not sure yet if I'll glue the wings before or after painting them. I know it's easier to paint them separately before assembling, but on the other hand, if I glue them now, I will need patch the gaps with green stuff and paint it with matching colors if I don't glue them right away. What are your thougths on this matter?

    10021, Viridius WIP

    @Kuroneko That’s very unfortunate considering the value of those out of production models. Are you willing to post a picture? I would gladly help fix it if I can give you some advice. Last night I added a first green stuff layer on the antlers. They now look like chicken paws.

    Super Kingdom Death Explore!

    Congrats! It's a very interesting conversion and you also did an amazing paint job on him.

    77306, Translucent Slimes

    @TheMandolin, no I didn't use primer. No primer and no paint, only two layers of ink. To help the ink to stick to the surface, I cleaned the models with soapy water. I applied a first layer of ink after the models were completely dry, and one last layer of ink on the areas that were not colorful enough. Maybe I will seal them with a gloss varnish latter.

    02691, Striges

    You've been groping underground for a while when you catch the sound of beating bat wings down the cavern ahead. A few steps more and the oozing walls open on a large cave. Small rusty-red creatures are flying in circle between stalactites, four pincer-like legs and a proboscis dangling under their hairy body. Abruptly, you notice a change in their behavior. They all hover in place and their yellowish eyes pierces in your direction. Before you have time to do anything, you are swarm by these bloodthirsty Stirges. Here are the 02691, Striges Dark Heaven Legends sculpted by Bob Olley.

    Thanks for your comments everyone. @malefactus I saw Dark Sword's model, I like their toothy smile.

    77427, Vermin Centipede

    A giant arthropod comes crawling from under a pile of debris and dead leaves along the ruined wall of the tower. Instinctively, a violent emotion of disgust invades you as you see and hear a dozen more centipedes creep out from the rubbles. With aversion, you take out you weapon and ready yourself to scour the long destroyed fortification. Here's a 77427, Vermin Centiped Dark Heaven Bones sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

    10021, Viridius WIP

    Some pliers, nails, a copper rod, staples, strings and super glue. I think the size looks acceptable. Next step, green stuff.

    30014: The Grudge

    You did an amazing work on him. I like the pure blue you used, it brings out the eyes very nicely. It's never over until it's finished. That's why many artists don't like to show their work in progress until they feel satisfy. It's the same for me, sometimes when I paint, I get to a point where I think I'm going astray. When it happens, I leave the model on the shelf for a while and give it a go when I feel like it needs to be finish. I also really like that model, I wonder how many of those were produced and if Reaper plans to manufacture other bust in the future.

    Hot & Dangerous Lagertha and Rosie

    The texture you painted on the the Shieldmaiden's cape is great. I also like the helmet real metal reflection.

    03650, Fire Elemental

    A mass of ambulatory flame races across the ground, seeming to flicker and spark from a central, humanoid-shaped conflagration. Like a living inferno, the fire-creature’s burning dance of heat flame brings it ever closer. D&D 3.5 Monster Manual. Here's 03650, Fire Elemental a Dark Heaven Legends pewter model sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

    Lovely work all-round, I really like her eyes and cheeks.

    02102, Plague Zombie

    A rotting stench catches you nose. You see a creature slowly moving in your direction waving a dagger. At first, it looks like a beggar wearing rags. He utters a low moan and you realize as it's coming out of the shadows that he's missing part of its scalp and has a gaping hole in its abdomen through which you see his ribs and his petrified organs. Turning to the cleric, you scream with horror. Zombie! Here's 02102, Plague Zombie, Dark Heaven Legends sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. It's the second time i paint this model, here's the link to 02043: Undead Rising, 02102: Plague Zombie & 02157: Undead Awakening I painted 10 years ago.
