  1. Jasonator

    Jasonator's Mounted Noble Oak Elf.

    Completed the Mounted Noble Oak Elf by Tom Meier. This Miniature proved a lot more difficult than I anticipated. Had to paint most of the elements separately, then glue them together. I found balancing the colors, and keeping dark areas in control hard to do when things aren't attached. The camera isn't doing credit to the gray blending into the shadows. They're there. So.. Here is the finished Elf.
  2. This is the last of the Elves I have (I have some dupes, but I'm holding off painting them). With all the horses that I have been playing with; I decided to do a Gray. Of all the colors, a gray horse is going to make you work very hard for your color. Its either TOO dark, or TOO Light.. Realize then when you start. So I have painted the horse Gray already. I just have to glue the rider onto his Horse. I may do some independent painting on the figure before I attach him. I have lined the rider at this point. I'm thinking of Blues, and Silvers, with Reddish/brown oak leaves on Horse, and Riders Cloak. Beyond that it is my beginning premise !

    Jasonator's Mounted Elf Champion

    Just Based and Photographed the Compliment to my prior showoff posting. This is the Mounted Version of the Elf Champion. This has been a labor of extreme joy. I will post six photos (since I learned my lesson the last time)..chuckle. Hope my enjoyment of it shows, and you let me know what you think.

    Jasonator's 30mm Elf Champion

    Here is my attempt to paint the Elf Champion by Tom Meier. The incredible detail, complexity, and beauty of this work is daunting. It is a challenge ! With all that said; keep in mind it is 30mm. Here is my attempt to do it some sort of justice. Here are three more photos... Sorry, I can be as dumb as a rock sometime. I added 039 which shows the landscape on the other side of figure.

    Jasonator's Sir Percevale on Foot.

    Had a lot of fun painting this one in Greens, after painting the mounted version in Oranges. Finally catching on to the basing concepts. So here is Sir Percevale dismounted. I modified the previously entered photos in favor of some that I had NOT reduced. So these photos have only been cropped. Hopefully these are a better quality, while I transition to using a REAL digital Camera, and set up !
  6. I have been experimenting a lot on this mini. These 25mm (one inch) miniatures are a bit of a challenge; but they are carved so well you can stretch yourself a bit. I've been mixing my colors ON the horse while it is wet. Its a gamble, you can really make mud very quickly. I'm rather delighted, and happy with how this turned out. I've developed a lot of pleasure from doing these, and am grateful for all the assistance this forum has provided me as I learn the ropes, and develop my personal style. Here are two Sir Balyne photos.
  7. Amazing, I just finished this Miniature. As Willen, and Ub3r-N3rd say.. you start out a total noobie, and then you learn step by step to do this basing trip. So here is the Thunderbolt Mountain Herald, painted, and with a base on him ! Remember this is 25mm. (one Inch Tall) Has been a blast to paint. The sculpts are really very detailed, and don't be afraid of their size; you really can amaze yourself with the level of complexity you can achieve. Great way to enhance your hand, eye, mind control. There are a couple of spots that look like voids on right arm, its the camera, not the paint !

    Jasonator's Lancelot d' lake

    This is what I have been calling Lance II, since my original miniature was replaced due to a problem. I've had him sitting around waiting, and decided to paint him up, and since he didn't come with a base, I had to create my own base this time (this is a first). So without a whole lot of commentary; here is lance, going up the ruined stairs with his mace in hand. Has been fun, I'm rather delighted with the way this turned out. (my original base was far too complex, and large, and had to be removed). Gotta make mistakes to learn ! Oh..Lance II is a 25mm Mini (should call it a "Micro-Mini") !

    All My Friends Know The Low Rider

    Ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba...ba. ba..............Ba, ba, ba, ba.......ba Edit: I revisited him recently, touched him up, revised the water effects and took some better quality photos. This is an example of what the pics and paint job looked like before:

    Matrissa's Unidentified Dragon

    So, I have this metal dragon that I glued together and covered with Testors grey primer back, oh, 10 to 15 years ago, in preparation for painting using Testor's enamels and then never actually got around to painting. His right wing got knocked off at some point when he fell off a bookshelf, largely because I didn't know you were supposed to PIN as well as glue things like wings, but also because it really hadn't been treated very carefully (there were many occasions I found it had fallen over and was lying on one side, with all its weight resting on a single wing, long before that wing came off). I glued it back on with (I think) contact cement. (green stuff? what's that?) I'm wondering two things: 1: Can anyone identify the sculpt (i.e., who made it)? The figure is attached to a flat base I made for stability out of a "sample" piece of that stuff they put on kitchen counters ("stolen" from the hardware store), so I can't check the bottom for the manufacturer's name. (Note that the wings as shown might be situated more vertically than originally intended, a side effect of the all-too-common "lying on one wing" scenario mentioned above.) 2: Should I strip him in PineSol and start fresh or do you think that I could start with acrylics over the existing primer? Thanks!
  11. So, in anticipation of my Kickstarter Bonenami arriving SoonTM, I decided to start my own WIP thread, even though I currently only have one Bones mini to my name. I decided to get a bugbear as my practice mini, (my tiny FLGS only had about 5 Bones to choose from :/ ), just to see what I was in for and familiarize myself with filing, boiling, painting and stripping paint, etc. These first three pics are of him straight out of the package. Needs boiling, obviously: He also looks like he was the victim of a botched beheading: Lastly, the straps that are supposed to be holding his shield to his arm are, instead, only attached to his arm. While I could forgive maybe one strap in this condition, all four attachment points are currently floating and it just looks silly: (edit: I retroactively took this picture after doing some work, in case you noticed that his neck looks better now. I'll detail more in my next post) Clearly, he's gonna need some work before I even think about touching paint, so it looks like I chose a good one for learning on! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    Mousling Knight (part of 03542)

    This is the Knight from 03542: Mouslings: Bard Thief Knight sculpted by Gene Van Horne. Just a gorgeous little mouse. He has not tail - possibly a battle injury or possibly amputation is a right of passage for mousling knights. My first attempt at fur - I have a way to go but I am not displeased by this attempt. Having the green of the acorn the same green as the grass was not the best idea - as it looks like the haft of the sword is spotted with grass rather than bound in the same colours as the shield. Lovely sculpt.

    Metal Praying Paladin

    This is one of my older completed figures. He was the first one where I started crafting bases to accentuate the pose of the mini. When he was on his broccoli base, he looked more like he was doing a somersault than praying, so I tilted the ground underneath him.
  14. Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll (from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872) `Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe: All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe. "Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!" He took his vorpal sword in hand: Long time the manxome foe he sought -- So rested he by the Tumtum tree, And stood awhile in thought. And, as in uffish thought he stood, The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame, Came whiffling through the tulgey wood, And burbled as it came! One, two! One, two! And through and through The vorpal blade went snicker-snack! He left it dead, and with its head He went galumphing back. "And, has thou slain the Jabberwock? Come to my arms, my beamish boy! O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!' He chortled in his joy. `Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe; All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe. Here he is, The Jabberwocky from Warheads: Medieval Tales. Comments and Criticisms Welcome. Techniques attempted in this that I haven't really done much of before ... on purpose.

  15. Here are the results of my Metal vs. Bones paint off. Both figures were painted simultaneously using the exact same mix of colors; I basically went back and forth. I alternated which version I started/ended painting particular sections, so that neither got any favoritism with regards to order of painting. I didn't agonize over making things as perfect as I'd like; ego wasn't the point of this experiment. You'll note the one difference with respect to customization is the freehand inside the robe. I assumed that my freehand skills wouldn't allow me to replicate the same pattern on both figures, so I just followed my 'feeling' as I worked. I do hope that this one difference doesn't give any Bones naysayers ammunition to try and invalidate the experiment. I am in no way affiliated with Reaper. So there you have it, which version is which version?

    Olivia Mercenaries Cleric

    I love her most of all for not making me glue an arm/leg/head or having to use sculpting putty anywhere.
  17. Hi guys. I recently got back into making mini's. My first one is making a Dwarf Fighter for my DnD RP Sessions. The problem I'm having is, I don't know where to start. I have a basic idea on what I want, but I just, can't push forward with it. Do you guys have any suggestions on how I should approach this and where I can start? I'll even take suggestions on what to do. I'm just to frustrated to think. Any help or tips you guys give me is much appreciated. Thank you. P.S. Here are a couple of photo's of what my mini looks like.

    Nagash

    will get some pictures up of him by himself later. this is a little size comparison for you guys, with a bones orc archer, my ogre chief Half Lived and Nagash
  19. http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/47374-p-65-heavy-metal-miniatures-line-canceled/ I guess I'm not astonished. While cheaper than the lead-free pewter minis, the lead minis are still dealing with hazardous substances. And as far as cheaper than pewter alternatives go, it looks like Bones have lead beat all hollow.

  21. Came across this little guy today. he's been struggling along for a while now, but his designs are really very interesting and are quite good. He has sculpts of almost everything he's listing here (all but a few stretch goal minis are depicted). His prices are a bit on the higher end (since a lot of his little guys are quite small looking), but this guy is basically starting from scratch, so it's understandable with his current situation. Currently, the batch prices are: $53 gets you "All the Little Guys" - This includes: 3 Floating Eyes, 3 Phlemf, 1 of each of all 3 Peepers, a Wolf-in-Sheep's-Clothing, a Lensman (my personal favorite design), and a Gauth. Also, a not-beholder pin/earring $200 gets you "All the Big Guys" - This includes: 1 Tentacle Hulk, 1 Huge Alibeth, 1 Doomkiss Eye Abberrant, and 1 DeepMother $250 gets you "Get it all" - This includes: All of the above. His next 2 stretch goals are only $500 and $1000 dollars away, and each adds 1 mini to the "All the Little Guys" and "Get it all" rewards Now, there is a risk since he is brand new and untested, but I figured some of you guys might like what he's offering! http://www.kickstart...r-miniatures-se ETA: Frankthedm informed me of the depth at which the miniatures were copied from WoTC's monsters. I've included a copy-paste of Sean K. Reynolds' response to this KS. Pledge at your own risk.

    Painting Metallic

    I've been painting a little while and have a few metallic paints, both Reaper and GW. Any way, I was blown away by the miniature pictured next to Julie Guthrie's shark greens. Specifically, the miniature's helmet looks so shiny you could shave in the reflection. These photos inspired me to experiment with media and varnish. I came up with a medium that is 2 parts Liquitex Gloss Medium, 1 part Winsor and Newton Flow Improver and 1 part water. This I mixed 1 for 1 with my metallic paints. Then I experimented with various varnishes and found Liquitex Hi-Gloss Varnish to be pretty nice. Still, I doubt I'll get anything as shiny as the mini in those photos. Any suggestions? Also, does anyone know if that was that one of Julie's figs next to the sharks, or did somebody else paint the knight in question? I've reposted the photo here for ease of reference.
