    Grenadier Barbarian

    Loved this mini so had to paint it up. Grenadier barbarian, not sure of the model because I clipped the metal base off.

    Draegia, leaping into battle

    Front view linked for nudity, a barbarian from David Drage, that I based to leap into battle, leading a barbarian horde. I worked with some slightly different colors than I usually do and was pleased with the outcome. The hair is the Reaper Red Hair Triad. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v465/kevd82/Draegia 1_zpsa21bdhzk.jpg

    Grenadier Barbarian

    This is one of the harder to find Grenadier Fantasy Warriors Barbarians as he is not currently in production - I gave him a club and shield instead of the halberd he inexpicably had in the USA pack (he had a sword in the UK pack). I used the Reaper Ruddy Flesh-Barbarian Flesh-Warrior Flesh triad, along with some Olive Skin Shadow as a glaze over the basecoat and mixed in the first few layers. The pictures are a little overexposed I think, but I am pleased with the skintone results! This is also an example of how well Tamiya Smoke can work as a glaze over metal - I really like the tone on the shield.

    Edge of Oblivion - an ub3r diorama!

    EDGE OF OBLIVION After many miles climbing the mountains of his homeland, Torgar the Barbarian had finally caught up to the two thieves who had stolen his family heirloom, his grandmother's axe which had been used to cut the head off the great orc chieftain Yarvak. He had found their trail and followed it through the blizzard. He was raging after he had shown them hospitality and drinks, they had slipped a drug into his drink and stolen the artifact.... Now was the time for the reckoning! "VENGEANCE SHALL BE MINE!!!!" Roared Torgar, after taking the head off the first thief and showing it to the other. "YOU HAVE NOWHERE ELSE TO FLEE TO LITTLE THIEF, HERE IS YOUR EDGE OF OBLIVION!!!!" The lone dwarf dropped the artifact and realized his folly, he could jump off the cliff to his death or have his head removed from his shoulders like that of his friend... -------------------------------------------------------------------- This was a really fun project, it took me a while to get started on it and took me a couple of weeks to finish as I wanted to make it a display piece and be able to enter it into a couple of contests, one of which will be ReaperCon 2017. Torgar the Barbarian, Limited Edition 72mm resin figure from Terrible Kids Stuff Random Encounter! 54mm resin figure from FER Miniature Base scratch built out of bark and milliput along with frit and snow flock Shoutout to Thrym for putting together the placard for me! WIP HERE Thank you all for following along and your comments/critiques are greatly sought after and appreciated!

    Barbarian with a Beard

    Hey folks! First timer here, though I must admit to lurking through the forums for quite some time before I got up the nerve to post something. I've only recently discovered Bones and I must say that i'm absolutely amazed with it. In a fit of curiosity I bought some green stuff from the local hobby store and went about trying to make my own miniatures. (This post isn't about that) the results were less than photo worthy, but i'm still working on it, so maybe i'll have something to show for my efforts. Anyways, i'm getting distracted, I'm currently running a home brew role-playing game with some friends and one of my players has been lamenting the fact that there aren't any red bearded Barbarian characters. (He sports a mighty beard.) I searched through the Bones stock and found that he was right - there really wasn't anything that suited. Then I remembered something that someone had posted in the craft corner about trying to modify miniatures before You try to sculpt your own. And Oh Boy - were they right. My apologies about the shots they were taken on my phone. I started with Goldar the Barbarian http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/goldar/latest/77047 Who as you can see is beardless, but he's got a nice well defined neck and I thought he'd be perfect to add a beard. As you can see the photo below i'm still a beginner as far as painting but I was very surprised how easy and effective a little bit of Green stuff goes. To whom ever suggested modification of Bones as a learning step you have my heartfelt thanks, You've made a certain red bearded barbarian very happy! Keep on Gaming! Chris
  7. These two were just left out of my group painting of the "Frostgrave: Forgotten Pacts" set.

    Idol of Crom

    I have been working on this Idol of Crom to use in the Monolith Conan game - made from a bust and then surrounded/based in cork for the rough stone. I started with black and worked up with overbrushed layers of grey, as well as pushing around some nearly dry paints in parts to create texture. There are also washes of black and Secret Weapon Stone involved. I am basically at the final highlight stage, then will do some dirt and grass around the rough stone part. A fun project! First picture, starting to build up the base:
  9. This was a speed paint I did in an attempt to paint faster and not overthink my miniatures. I had painted fhe base previously. Boris took and hour, my NMM attempt took 40 more minutes.
  10. This is an objective/scenery piece I did to use in the Monolith Conan game - thanks for the advice I got in the WIP thread!
  11. The Usurper, finished. Sculpted by Rykar Jové for Barbaric Splendor Miniatures; he made a few masters before sending his sculpts to me, so I have finally gotten this painted! I love the whole sculpt, but Rykar did an especially great job on the tiger emblem on the shield! I will have an update on the Kickstarter that includes this miniature in a couple days - all sculpts are in so they will be going off for master molds soon! I used Reaper Ruddy Flesh, Reaper Barbarian Flesh, and Reaper Warrior Flesh to layer up the skin - the Ruddy Flesh is very dark, so still working on getting this recipe smoother but I am getting there I think.
  12. Decided to start painting this awesome barbarian up as part of the Hobby Hangout Competition that's going on right now! Torgar the Barbarian Limited edition: 100 copies Concept: Roberto Cirillo Sculptor: Raul Garcia Latorre Material: Resin (Bigchild Creatives) Pieces: 10 Weight: 66gr Scale: 1:24 (75mm)
  13. These 2 also got their Secret Weapon Crushed Glass Snow, and, Barring some base touch ups, are Done! Red Gunhildr Little Svein Swiftfoot Thanks for following along and Looking! WiP here Now on to the thugs and the warband will be done! (for now...)

    10033, Mousling Heroes boxed set

    From the 10033, Mouslings Heroes Boxed Set here's; 03529B, Fenimore the Mousling Archer sculpted by Gene Van Horne.
  15. So these 2 are being done concurrently with the 2 archers for my Frostgrave warband, so there will likely be overlap with the colors used in the 2 WiPs.... So I started doing the flesh on the next parts of my Frostgrave warband, Red Gunhildr the Barbarian, & Little Svein Swiftfoot the Thief.... GW Scorched Brown, Reaper Linen White & SC75 Tesla Blue for the eyes..... Arabic Shadow, Arabic Shadow and Basic Flesh 50%, Basic Flesh, Basic Flesh and Golden Skin 50%, Golden Skin, Golden Skin and Light Skin 50%, light Skin, and a glaze of Golden Skin and Basic flesh 3/2... Gunhildr's hair started with Abyssal Blue.... Svien: Thanks for looking, and Comments and Critiques welcome!
  16. So here's the figure I was talking about in another post, where I was lamenting about sealants and how they sometimes rubbed off details of my photos. I tried a new method though, and I think I've hopefully solved the problem. Here is the Ral Partha Female Barbarian with Short Sword, which was sculpted by the great Jim Johnson, and which was inspired from a Larry Elmore painting called Warband. Back then in the day, Partha did an entire box of figures dedicated to the painting. This is one of them, even though I didn't follow the painting's color scheme. ​I took a few pictures of her from a few different angles because she's not so flat and I think it helps appreciate the figure. Anyhoos, enjoy!
  17. So, I have flocking, sealing, and glossing left to do, but it looks like I've made a dent in all my end of the year Kickstarter arrivals, expected or not: This includes: Frostgrave: Forgotten Pacts, Oathsworn: Heroines in Sensible Shoes, RPE: Dwarf Veterans, Midlam: Wizard Apprentices, TAG: Halflings, and some other odds and ends I've just opened a package from Midlam of Halfling Wizards and Apprentices, so I better wrap these up soon...I think there's also some more Halflings and Chaos Dwarves due soon from Ganesha Games. I may have a problem...

    77047, Goldar Male Barbarian

    Here is a barbarian I did for my frostgrave warband. Total badass who seem to be asking 'who's next?'. Feedback welcome.

    Some old school Ral Partha figures

    So here are four I just finished yesterday and got photographed this morning. I tried to get them photographed yesterday afternoon, but it was way too cloudy to get any good light. Anyhow, here are four figures, a Lord of the Household, Max Mentalus the wizard, Frea Koolblade, and a Larry Elmore chick from one of Partha's Elmore boxes. Have a look and I hope you enjoy. I keep seeing little things that bother me in each one, but oh well, as a buddy of mine tells me, you're never satisfied with your own work when it's done.

    The Lioness

    I thought this was a cool figure and picked it up in one of the DGS kickstarters. She's got some fiddly spots but was generally a joy to paint.
  21. Hello fellow Forumites! I always enjoy coming back from ReaperCon, as my creative battery has been recharged and I'm ready to paint again! I'm currently working on a special project for someone who plays fierce female barbarian brawlers in her Dungeons & Dragons campaigns. I'm even painting it in her image, complete with upper leg tattoos. Reaper's "Viking Girl" sculpted by Bobby Jackson was the perfect choice for this! I'm still not convinced I can pull off this freehand tattoos, but I try something new in every project and I can always paint over it in skin tone if it becomes too overwhelming. I'm using Reaper's Highland Moss & Pale Lichen for the cloak. After taking Rhonda Bender's "Level Up" class at ReaperCon, I've decided to experiment with more interesting shadow colors in my minis. In the past, I would have chosen a dark olive green for the shadows of the cloak, however, this time I've mixed the mid tone Highland Moss with a touch of Nightshade Purple for the darkest folds and recesses of her cloak. After that, I started to layer in more of the midtone color mixed with Pale Lichen (~50//50 mix). I blend as I go and make my way up to Pale Lichen on the highlights of the folds. While I may go up an additional level of highlight, mixing in some Pure White with Pale Lichen, I'll see how much contrast I have on other sections of the mini once she's almost done. Either way, the back of the cloak could use some additional smooth blending, so I'll be sure to revisit that at a later time. Here's what I've painted so far, each step follows each set of images starting from top to bottom. Step 1: Basecoats & shadows for cloak, hair and gems Step 2: Cloak highlights. Repeat steps 1 & 2 on front loincloth-cloak thingy. Blend, blend, blend... Step 3: Hair highlights (more to come), fur, gems, jewelry & starting on the sword Next up is finishing her sword, then boots, gloves and shield. And then maybe I'll consider giving her some dirt on the bottom of her cloak as a final touch (if I can bring myself to smear pigment over something I've painstakingly blended lol) However, I'm having a hard time deciding where to place her eyes since her hair covers a portion of each eyeball, which makes it especially tricky. I'll need to make sure to leave enough white sclera in each eye to make the direction clear. I'm leaning toward painting her looking left, toward her sword, like she's threatening someone or pointing at something on the ground. What do you think?

    Nanok the Barbarian, Runebound

    Hello all.. After a long interval (during which we moved house) I am back to present some minis.. The first is Nanok the Barbarian (from Runebound 3rd Edition expansion set, The Mountains Rise, I had painted the original 3rd Ed. figures some time ago (here)). And now that I got my hands on two of the long expected expansions I finally got them (one more is coming up soon) painted. As always, thanks for looking and C&C is welcomed and craved for.

    Conan the Barbarian (from the BG Conan)

    It was a no brainer that I had to paint Conan first.

    Bones highland heroine 77389

    Hey all, Wanted to take a break from painting big stompy robots (CAVs) and get back into something with curves. Someone in my pathfinder group just made a new character, a female slayer... So I used that as motivation to paint up this awesome sculpt. I looked around and got heavy inspiration from these two posts by Pingo and Evilcoatrack: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61985-scáthach-scotswoman-warrior-77389-highland-heroine/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69147-77389-highland-heroine-wip/ I decided to try a few new things with this mini, including thinning using matte medium, and a tartan pattern. Tartan is really hard to make look good... If anyone had any tips, I am all ears. I just finished the hair and am really happy with how it came out, and this is probably the best face I have ever done as well (with eyes, no less!). In fact, the irises went on a bit thick, so there is a little dollop that creates a shadow under strong light to mimic a pupil ... Kind of like the opposite of what Roman sculptures do. A fortunate accident. Anyway, C and C appreciated. I reckon I'll have her done by the end of the week. I'll be trying nmm on the sword and shields. Pingo and Evilcoatrack, thanks for the inspiration!!!
  25. This is the continuation of a show off linked here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71368-sculpted-barbarian-warband/ This barbarian crew is finally getting some paint thrown at them. They have come a long way on their paint journey, but still have some distance before we hit that finish line. I tried to bring in a lot of varieties of browns to create the hide/fur look while also bringing in some subtle extra bits of color. Extra input into color ideas would absolutely be welcome. I have been trying to use a good amount of dry brushing and working on getting those darker undertones with highlights of lighter colors to create the illusion of depth and shadow. It's definitely still new to me, and I'm really inconsistent in terms of when it goes well as opposed to burying my darker tone with the lighter one, but that's part of the process. First we have our wizard and his apprentice, followed by our big fighters, then the thief and treasure hunter types, and finally, our archers and rangers. Anyway, comments, critiques, or compliments are always welcome :=)
