    77209: Arran Rabin

    Just painted up this guy to throw some miscellaneous heroes into my painting queue. Painted him up darker and a little more boring than usual since that seems to be what types of minis the players at my table gravitate towards if choosing a random miniature. Thanks for reading!

    77211: Gauntfield

    Wanted to paint up some halloween themed minis in October so I painted up Gauntfield. He's on a base from Secret Weapon. He was a lot of fun, thanks for reading!
  3. Painted up Feiya for my tempest cleric and painted up this other miniature that I don't know the name or number of (unreleased as of now I think) for my husband's rogue. I tried to paint his poncho sort of like schemes from Clint Eastwood's characters in the Sergio Leone movies. Feiya's base is milliput using a Green Stuff world roller (aztec) and the guy's base is one of the (again, Aztec series) Dragon Forge pre-made bases. Thanks for reading
  4. Today saw the completion of the three Void Sorcerors: Womma Womma Womma! All my thin pointy brushes have given up on life and chosed to split, so I am struggling abit with thin lines these days. While waiting for some new brushes I have ordred to arrive, we get a bit shoddy with the freehand symbols such as in these books. It should still be possible to make out which symbols I have tried to paint in each of them though. I hope. These are from the “Masters of the Void Deluxe Enemy Pack” for Shadows of Brimstone, the Wierd West lovecraftian horror scifi mashup dungeon delver. This pack also includes the three Void Hounds I did a few weeks ago. So that completes the minis from that expansion. The void sorcerors are on 30mm bases, and are made from HIPS polystyre aka “hard plastic”.

    Reaper Bones Succubus

    Finally finished this demon chick (Reaper 77281) to decent tabletop stadard. She had been sitting on my bench half painted a long time. Her face had a flash line on one side, so I tried to make it look like a fresh wound.

    Bones Balazar, Gnome Summoner

    Balazar, the gnome summoner (Reaper 89023) was fun to paint. That mould line running down the side of his hat thing was not that visible when I painted him. Oh well, another one done, yay!
  7. Citrine

    Invisible Heroes

    All I did was cut off the integral base and glue them on painted bases from CMON. Another 4 done! Reaper Bones: Invisible Rogue 77449 Invisible Wizard 77450 Invisible Cleric 77451 Invisible Warrior 77453
  8. Blah, can't win lately. Con, sick, travel, travel, drama....sorry I'm late y'all.

Due to the revised format, there will be more than one bonus challenge available for this month. Including a "Hard mode" which Is some combination that may or may not have a source behind it. Your challenge is: 8! Bonus Challenge: The First! September 25th is national comic book day! Paint a mini to resemble a comic book character of your choice (Bonus points* for any from the "League of regrettable superheroes/supervillains" Bonus Challenge: The Second! 3 Families of color only.

Hard Mode Challenge! Modify a mini (besides the gelatinous cube/large fire elemental) to have an actual flickering light-source inside of it (with the battery concealed somehow), like a jack-o-lantern. The more creative the better, obviously. Good luck *The game is made up and the points don't matter
  9. I speed painted Aglanda while helping my son's girlfriend paint her first mini.
  10. Trying to meet challenge guidelines. This is close to 1 figure 1 thread. I did the priming base-coating and some NNM on previous days. I had so much fun painting these guys today, For at least 90 minutes I was so focused time seemed to stand still. And yet I need to touch up the eyes. and maybe basing - well they are moving to 'ready to play box' so I'm calling them done.

    77051: Orc Stalker

    So...this is 1/4 for the FebRPChallenge. I just have quick and dirty cell phone pics for now, until I get my lightbox set up. I painted this with following the schematic outlined in the LTPK.
  12. The three ogre grunt types from Bones 3. Not sure which is which, so obviously I had to paint them all up together so I could just post them all at once. They, like the other Bones 3 ogres, are excellent and were fun to paint. Thanks for reading!
  13. Chaoswolf

    77137 Sarcophagus

    The Bones sarcophagus painted to my usual tabletop level. I have a second one that I'll try painting all the scrollwork, flowers, and whatnot on the outside. This one was mostly washes and drybrushing. I hope you like it.
  14. Chaoswolf

    Another Ral Partha lady fighter lady

    Another old-school Ral Partha fighting woman who is sensibly dressed. I finished her up last night. let me know what you think, please.
  15. Chaoswolf

    77318 Bookshelf

    The Bones bookshelf, painted to what I hope is a decent tabletop standard. Let me know what you think.
  16. Chaoswolf

    Ice Toad

    This is an old Mega Miniatures giant frog that I have painted as an ice toad for use in games of Frostgrave. I have another one that's not quite finished yet; you'll see him a little later on. Tabletop paint as usual. ...and of course I see the base is scratched a little. I'll fix it in a bit.

    Ral Partha Male Fighter

    This is the other figure that comes in the blister pack with the female fighter I posted a while back: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/76723-ral-partha-female-fighter/&tab=comments#comment-1615258 I finished him and he's ready to join his lady friend on the battlefield. Table top paint job.
  18. Oh yes. It just had to be done: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BaMIg_q4LeY If you have seen the TV-series or the comic The Strain, you know what inspired this Evil Bloodsucking Chocobo of Death! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7MDGTWb5Dw 62110: Numenera Ithsyn Reaper Bones KS2 Bonesium PVC 40mm base
  19. In the third Bones kickstarter, one of the dragons was made available in clear Bones material, in addition to the normal offwhite the Bones usually come in. Naturally, I opted for the clear one. Reiterating how to paint translucent minis: Clearly, it is nessecary to use paints that in themselves are translucent, such as inks or quickshades to preserve some of the dragon’s own translucency or it will all be for nought! From bitter experience I know that the usual opaque paints will *not* work if you want any sort of translucent effect, even if they are thinned considerably. Many acrylic paints such as I use, (e.g. Citadel, Vallejo, Army Painter, Reaper, Scale 75 etc) will cover in a certain way which obscures the translucency, also when thinned. Some will leave a “chalky” look. This is mostly apparent in pale and whitish paints. So anyway: The key to painting a transparent mini is first to scrub it in warm, soapy water to remove any mold release residue (silicon, talc or whatever. It is greasy and stops the paint from sticking properly to the mini.) The plastic/resin is in itself also somewhat paint repellent on it’s own, so: When dry, undercoat it with clear, (preferably matte) varnish. I use Army Painter Anti Shine Spray for this. (I find all Army Painter sprays (and Vallejo acrylic primers for airbrush) work fine on Bones material, be aware that some brands are to be avoided as they will not cure properly and remain sticky). This lets the paint adhere to the mini just like a normal opaque undercoat. Then, knock yourself out with inks or quickshades. Experiment with several layers and different colours, even wet blending as you go. Take care to remove any unwanted pools of paint that might gather. I use a clean, damp brush for this. Opaque paints should be kept only for extremely light highlighting and any bits that are to be opqaque, such as the base, or for effects such as making eyes pop. I used Army Painter Soft Tone quickshade ink (the water based stuff that comes in a dropperbottle, not the horrendous and smelly dip that goes by the same name). In additon I used Army Painter Green quickshade, with claws and eyesockets in Red quickshade. Eyeballs were done in old Citadel Golden Yellow, and the entire body was given an extremely light drybrush with Reaper Dirty Bone on a broad brush. The teeth were picked out in the same dirty bone. The bedrock was glued down to one of my custom oval 3Dprinted bases, and painted in opaques in the same way as I do most rock these days: Dark green/grey over black, heavy drybrush in sandy yellow followed by a lighter drybrush with off white. Some tufts, thinned pva glue and my magic flock /scatter mix later, voila. I kept the dragon and the base as two seperate parts when painting to avoid slopping the wrong kind of paint where it was not meant to go. I even remembered to paint the plugs on the underside of the feet that were to be in contact with the base to avoid ugly bright patches there. I opted for a relatively heavy stain. To make the colour less colouring. thin the quickshade with preferably acrylic medium, or water. This needs a bit more shepherding and brushwork up until the ink starts to dry enough to stay still, to avoid an uneven result.

  20. The Thing. Last seen on an Antarctic research station…At least that is what this makes me think of. So naturally, I painted it in fleshy tones to make is as horrid as can be. Strange plant life around here… Now, start rolling those Sanity Checks. 77521 Gravewailer Reaper miniatures Bones 3 KS Mythos Expansion Rigid PVC / Bonesium 40mm base

    Maledrakh's 80075 Camel w/ Pack

    From the Bones 3: Mythos expansion comes the “Camel w/ Pack”. Luckily, the pack-part is loose and fits quite snugly so it is not nessecary to glue it on. This turned out to be a really good thing, as I left the pack on it and went on a few days’ trip. When I came back, the camel was listing heavily to it’s right side. I pulled them straight again, too bad I forgot to take a picture. still listing... Herein lies one of the problems with the bones material, especially when the legs or other supporting bits are thinnish. They sometimes cannot support the weight causing the mini to droop earthwards. The legs are fine for just the camel, but they could not support the weight of the pack as well, and bent over time. I have experienced that almost all dragons and larger models need a third contact point in addition to the legs, or some reinforcement with metal rods to avoid drooping. It could have been a wild camel if not for the bridle. ..and the pack. 80075 Camel w/ pack Reaper miniatures Bones 3 KS Mythos Expansion Rigid PVC / Bonesium 3D printed 60x35mm oval base
  22. Since I was one of the people most excited about Hobgobageddon in Bones 3 I was pretty excited to start painting these guys up. I still have 12 individuals left after this (or 3 more color configurations to try) but these were the first four. I tried to give them white armor because I thought it would provide an interesting contrast to their skin. Their skin is auburn shadow mixed and highlighted with carrot top red. Anyways, they were a lot of fun unfortunately some detail on their faces was lost in the bones process but the rest of the minis were wonderfully detailed and fun to paint. Thanks for reading!

    Ral Partha Female Fighter

    This is an old Ral Partha female fighter; she is part of a 2 figure set with a male figure dressed and armed in the same fashion. (He is still on the workbench awaiting a few finishing touches) I hope you like her.
  24. So having gotten in a few games of Frostgrave, I have decided that my warband was not optimal...... I decided to add the armored master crossbowman, (Can't remember his title...) and got a hold of 03116: Black Legionnaire w/ Crossbow, with one of my orders for the minis of the month... As I have not had any motivation to paint, I have tried a couple times to get my mojo going, and did some base coating on this guy... Hoping he adds some ranged punch to my group.... Thanks for looking! G

    Maledrakh's 77341 Lions

    A pair of big cats from the second Bones Kickstarter campaign Expansion set #1. That expansion was a seemingly random collection of different minis, these were the only “natural” creatures it it. The camera washes out the colours even though I have reduced the wossitsname that makes it less washed out as much as possible. I think the female turned out better. There is something wonky about the face of the male. They are based on my 50x25mm 3D printed oval bases. I put the stl on thingiverse where it can be downloaded for free. and now I have a hankering for *that* candy bar. You know which one.
