  1. So in my long and endless planning of a Star Wars campaign I thought of crime syndicates. I want a run in (or two, or a dozen) with the Hutt's and I would also like some with local gangs, space pirates and what not. I have been looking around for a while at different miniatures for such things. It's time to throw the net out to this fine Reaper Community So the campaign takes place WAY after the new Jedi Order. The Jedi are fully establish again like Episode on One/Two. (About 20 years BBY*). I have found two miniatures in the Reaper catalog that fit the bill. I like the look of these but they are not enough. I would really like an alien. I have also considered Infinity Miniature armies. Mixing and matching. If y'all have any recommendations please share them here, I greatly appreciate it! *BBY stands for Before the Battle of Yavin. The Battle of Yavin is the battle at the end of Star Wars A New Hope when the Rebels fought the empire and destroyed the first Death Star. __________________________________________ Figure Finder Catalog: Part 1: Styx: Master of Shadows Part 2: Jabba Mod/Gang Boss Part 3 TAKE COVER!

    MERCS: Recon - EU Squad

    Recently received Wave 1 of fulfillment for the MERCS: Recon kickstarter. While there are some quality issues (which they appear to be working on) the game itself seems pretty cool with a ton of replayability. Wave 1 was a copy of each of the two versions of the core game: Counter Threat and Assassination Protocol. Each box comes with 20 plastic miniatures: 2 squads of 5 MERCS from different factions and 10 security forces (5 SecForII and 5 SecForIII, with all the copies in each box the same, but different sculpts between boxes). Wave 2 will provide a LOT more squads and figures, at least with my pledge level. To play the game you don't need to have the SecFor miniatures, as they have counters as well, but you do need the MERCS, so they went to the top of the line. After looking at the figures I decided to start with the EU faction, strictly because they looked like I could fully assemble them before painting, so should be the quickest to get going with (I did play one solo game with them after assembly and before priming just to try out the game (I lost.....but was -> <- this close to winning......)) I painted the EU mostly at work, but ended up finishing them up at home today, so I can seal them tomorrow and we can play on Monday. I'll probably add some individual pics tomorrow morning when the light is better, From left to right are the Analyst, the Sergeant, the Leader, the Medic and the Shock. I was just going for tabletop with the paint job, as these are to play with. It's based off the standard colours from Megacon Games. The basing I kept really simple, but decided to go with the faction colours for the 4 quadrants on the base. With all the squads I'll have I figured it was a way to make sure I had all of the right faction, plus one of the guys in my gaming group is visually impaired, so hopefully this will make it easier for him to pick the MERCS out from the SecFor, once I get them painted.

    Pets in Space

    So I was thinking of this more and more for a diorama I'm planning. What kind of pet would you imagine someone having on their ship? Additionally what kind of pet would you want on your ship? And why. Your ship being the one you own. Think Firefly, Han Solo, etc. Lastly, links to miniatures that correspond / pictures would be cool too. :)

    80045, 80046, 80047: Gray Aliens

    Here it is! Conclusive evidence of the existence of aliens!!!! Sorry, I may not have got enough sleep this weekend..... Anyway, picture, if you will, a race from another planet, not unlike our own. They discover a new planet with intelligent life. While they journey to meet them, they study the broadcasts of this race's own space exploration. From what they learn they pattern their own uniforms to follow the same colour system as the great explorers of this new species they journey to meet. These guys are just done to tabletop. I needed something to paint at work so ran down to the Bones storage facility on a Sunday night and picked something from the Chronoscope drawer. They were fun and quick to do. I have 20 more to do so they may end up in here at some point in the future.
  5. For Secret Sophie this year I got Klarg1 and he was looking for something Sci-Fi. I'd had an IMEF Bulldog that I'd been eager to paint since it first came out (Big Stompy Robots!!) but never gotten to. So I ordered myself another one and started in on it. I decided early on to go with battle damaged, so I could use both the pilot and the hatch, and so I could try out painting some damage. Then after Christmas I needed something to paint at work (and had just received a bunch of new military triads from the 12 days of Reaper) so I grabbed a couple of IMEF troopers to work on there while I was finishing the Bulldog at home. I'm pretty happy with how everything came out and I'm pretty sure the rest of my IMEF are going to get painted in a very similar fashion.

    Tiviel, Hellborn Rogue (Bones 77118)

    This week I completed a tabletop paint job on Tiviel, Hellborn Rogue, from the Bones 1 Kickstarter "Bedeviled" set. When looking at this figure there was something about it that looked more Sci-Fi than Fantasy to me. I don't know if it was the outfit, or the stance, or just the general demeanor of the figure; but to me it looked a bit more like a Star Trek alien than a fantasy world demon. So, I decided to go with that for my painting scheme. I'm pleased with how the Sci-Fi look turned out on her. I think she looks like a good alien assassin, or perhaps some sort of exotic knife dancer. As always, C & C welcome. For the full painting article, please se my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2016/01/tiviel-hellborn-rogue-figure-192-of-266.html
  7. Episode VII The WIP Awakens It's a time of uncertainly. Dreariness grips the forums as the influence of the Dread Winter spreads, but a glimmer of hope remains in the heroic forces of the Forumites. As they struggle against the dark and cold of the enemy, these brave painters may yet awaken the skill and strength needed to complete new figures.... Now that I've got THAT out of my system.....I think I'll be painting some Sci-Fi stuff over the next little while, mostly Bones 3 stuff but anything else that doesn't deserve a separate, like some old resin barrel terrain pieces I have, will likely end up in here too. Game specific stuff like Counter Blast and (hopefully arriving any day) Mercs: Recon will get their own WIPs. First project, so Bones Gray Aliens. Picked these 5 out at midnight last night so I'd have something to paint today. Gave them a quick scrub and threw them in the paint box to take to work. Gave them all a undercoat of Gray Liner. Based the skin with Rainy Gray. Eyes are Solid Black as will be base coating for any hardware. Thinking about doing the uniforms as if they were an alien Star Trek landing party. Didn't have any decently dark yellows or blues with me, but the obvious red shirt got a base coat of a mix of Walnut Brown and Carnage Red. Goal with these is nice quick table top. As usual for me with Bones tabletop, as the flash was minor it was left as is. Thought the eyes came out decent considering they were testing the fire alarm system randomly throughout lunch....

    IMEF Set from Bones 1 KS

    Some of you may remember that I recently posted the IMEF Reggie Van Zandt figure I had completed as a test figure for painting the rest of the IMEF set from the Bones 1 Kickstarter: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65909-imef-reggie-van-zandt-80017-bones/?hl=imef Over the Christmas break I had the time to finish the last of the figures from the set with quick tabletop paint-jobs, and here they are: As always, C & C welcome

    50039: Gug, Eldritch Horror

    I see that I need another colour background. The red colour washed out the miniature a bit:

    IMEF Reggie Van Zandt (80017) Bones

    I completed the IMEF Reggie Van Zandt Gatling-gunner figure over the weekend. This was my test figure for a paint scheme for the rest of the IMEF crew that came with the Bones I KS. I did a nice serviceable tabletop quality paint job on him, but was quite pleased with how is face turned out. All C & C welcome.

    Rosie, Chronotechnician (80008)

    This week, as i continue to work through the Bones I "Chronoscope Set", I painted up Rosie the Chronotechnician. It's a nice little figure with a lot of character. I'm a bit unhappy with her mouth, as it was not well molded and ended up looking a little odd. For the full write-up on painting her, please see my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/09/rosie-chronotechnician-figure-172-of-265.html
  12. Again. Not doing anything super spiffy. Another member of my army. Likely will be in a group shot at the end. I did him as a black and purple with a rifle. The blue is more his choice to make him look fiercer as he has scars around both wings.

    03664: Fire Dragon Hatchling (Modded)

    Not doing anything fancy with these guys and likely they will wind up in a huge post with my whole army once I finish it, but for now they get their own Show-off First my Dual Pistol Wielding Fire Dragon Hatchling I think he is absolutely adorable. I may go in ad make the eyes a darker color though
  14. This month has been really busy, but I managed to at least get a couple more Mekkus done. These ones have a pair of Pulsar Rifles. And here is my Mekkus squad now. Still 3 more to paint from what came in the KS.

    [GROUP/OPEN] Counterblast!

    Decided to start on my Counterblast! figs in the new year, and I know there are some others on the forums here that were in on that kickstarter, so figured I'd start and open topic. I went in for the Ultonium level and got one of each starter set. That's a good sized pile o' figs.... I'm planning to start with the Mekkus. Let's open those bags and take a look. Ummmm, hmmm. I need to go sort out what belongs with what I think....

    01407: Dana Murphy

    WIP thread here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/56226-01407-dana-murphy/ Dana Murphy is my first attempt at a larger scale miniature. She was a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. I really wanted to get her done for ReaperCon, so I had to rush a bit at the end. I made quite a few mistakes, but I also learned a lot about painting at a larger scale. I hope to paint up at least one at this scale before next year's ReaperCon. Convenient, since I bought two candidates at the con itself. Dana, including pedestal Closer-ups of Dana

    One Shot & Fritz

    Woo! Finally done! I've been working on One Shot here for a few months. Overall I'm fairly pleased, but there was a lot that I just said "heck with it" in the name of finishing the model. Unfortunately, Jessi (the driver)'s pose (and where the pin ended up) kind of hides her, even though she's probably the best painted part of the whole thing. The gun is stolen from a Dust Tactics model because I thought she needed an upgrade if she was going to compete with the likes of Kasaro-To (the only other Relic I have assembled and painted). I used a lot of airbrushing and edge highlighting in neutral greys on the relic to match the rest of my Black Diamond force. Jessi is more colorful, because when you bring your own walking artillery piece to the fight against the end of the universe you can wear whatever you want. In this case, it's a bomber jacker, goggles, short shorts and pink leggings under armored boots. Because anime. Also pictured is Fritz, her cypher. The pictures suffer from glossiness - I didn't want to risk the fuzziness seen on some other models I've painted recently and the weather was nice enough for spray sealer.
  19. So I've been tossing around the idea of prototyping (yet another) sci-fi miniatures game system. The game concept I have would work best at 15mm, but since I don't have any 15mm miniatures, I haven't actually done anything in regards to trying my concept out in terms of a full scale game. I tried doing some paper counters as an initial test, but that isn't working out. So I've been kind of looking around at what kind of good deals I can get on a bunch of 15mm infantry figures. I'm probably just going to buy a box of Wargame Factory's 15mm WW2 Americans, since there are 92 figures in a box for $22, but before I do that, does anyone have any leads on even better deals for a variety of inexpensive 15mm infantry figures? Thanks in Advance.
  20. I managed to get two more figures painted for my Lancers squad in May. First up we have the Captain, He's a Shrinaar, which I guess are a race of space-faring cat people. And we also have the "Veteran" H0pr Bot. He's seen some action and hasn't even had time to get the second hand replacement parts repainted.... Here's a shot of my Lancers squad at this point.
  21. I also managed to whip through a couple of Mekkus Aggressors. These are the version with twin Particle Beam weapons. Here they are with the Defender I'd already done.
  22. This year my husband got me some resin terrain from Itar's Workshop, including some sci-fi pieces. One of these is IWS-IND-003, "Engine" and one of them is IWS-IND-001, "Power Generator", but I can't recall which is which. Here they are with Reaper's Dee Dee, Astro Girl, for scale. Please pardon my ignorance. I don't know know if these are true-to-life or pure fantasy, so I decided to paint them how I liked. I didn't take pictures for the earliest stages. First I primed them with titanium white (Golden matte fluid acrylics) with a very little flow improver added. Typically I wash over this with burnt umber to bring out details before painting. But for these pieces I wanted elements to glow as if lit from within. I have found that lighting effects work better over a pure white base, so I added them before the umber wash. One of them is going to have a cold, green glow, like fluorescent lights. The other has a shaded violet glow from above. Both have a bit of warm gold light. The mixes are simple. The green was just a touch of phthalocyanine green with titanium white. The violet is the same with the addition of some quinacridone magenta. The yellow is simply yellow iron oxide with white. (Reaper colors = Clear Green (almost), Pure White, Clear Magenta (probably), Palomino Gold) Anything painted on white looks deeper than it is. These colors are pretty light, and to show how light, here's my half-painted Reaper frost giant next to one of the resin pieces. For the last preparation step I washed some burnt umber over the pieces, brushing only lightly over the lighted areas to leave the recesses brightly colored. I may have missed a cranny here or there which I will fix as I go along.
  23. This is the first figure for the 2nd faction I'm painting up for Counterblast, the Mekkus. They are your classic all conquering robot race who turned on their creators and are not running rampant across the galaxy! I started with the Defender #1, a heavily armored defensive unit. Hopefully the fairly simple paint scheme will make it quick to get the whole squad painted up.
  24. And here is a H0pR Bot for my Lancers squad. He's a great fig, lots of ways to pose him. I had a lot of fun painting him up.

    Wild West Exodus

    Has anyone actually played WWX? I can't say that I'm overly impressed with the models, but interesting/different gameplay always piques my interest. Anything new or novel here? Not that I need any more miniatures games....
