  1. Knarthex's 2015 Reaper Round Up

    My skills with collages with the new photo shop I got for Xmas are non existent, so I thought I would link my Inspiration Gallery Pics if people cared to look at most of the Reaper Minis I painted this year.

Pillar of Good (02815) New Version I just picked up my paint brush again in mid April as a form of therapy, to keep my mind off of things better not dwelt on... Following the forums starting in July has really kicked up my game, as you can see if you start with the earliest minis I posted, and compared them to what I am achieving now.. Getting new GOOD brushes, learning how to use a wet palette and reading things here have been the keys to my improvement. So many thanks to everyone that commented about anything I posted, you certainly helped me out! Heck you guys helped me get 2 minis into the STORE! 02656: Demon Marbrezuk 03702: Peryton Special Thanks to our own "Dark Enabler", Ub3r_N3rd whom I have pestered unmercifully with questions since August when the Fall Exchange went Live! He was (and IS!) a font of good information and advice, and was more than patient with me... So it was a Great time for me! George
  2. End of the Year Roundup

    So here's what I finished this year, most of it from Reaper: A whole bunch of halflings and gnomes. A couple of frost giants: Reaper's Frorigh and Otherworld Miniatures' nameless giant. Dragons (and one ice wyrm). I actually made bases for the dragons (no, really!), so I should try to find later photos of them as well, and do Show-Off threads for their finished forms. Terrain pieces from Itar's Workshop, some sci fi, and lots of aquatic creatures. Standing stones both sinister and benevolent from Naloomi's Workshop (Hijad the Pirate amongst the standing stones is only there for scale). Lots of Mouslings and more aquatic critters. The kraken is done but I haven't made a Show-Off thread for it either, which is why the casual garden photography. And two Discworld characters, Granny Weatherwax and Samuel Vimes, from Micro Art Studio.
  3. Going to finish up his medallion with some free hand and call it done. Hope all of you have a lovely Christmas Maybe Santa will get me some photography skills next year ;)
  4. Continuing the WIP from http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64819-lexomatics-fall-2015-wip I'll be working on my shelf of shame minis, trying some bones 2 anhurians, some outstanding hearthstone minis, and maybe some more animals and skeletons, and ice walls and slimes. Also some zombicide crows (as lots of different birds
  5. Here's my Fall exchange piece. I's called Fractured Reality and yes, the mirror is suppose to be broken. I now have 14 years of bad luck because of it... Sorry for my sucky camera skills.
  6. This resin figure was the "Gold Badge Mini" included as part of your ReaperCon pass for 2015. I think extra copies were for sale at the convention, but I can't remember correctly. I think the resin figures were selling for $25.00 a pop but someone could correct that information. My goal was to put a paint job to the figure that was worthy of such an amazing sculpt, and for the baseline cost of the figure. I envisioned this evil knight to have once been a legendary hero of much repute in his native land. Perhaps he was the 'first sword' of his king before befalling a terrible fate...something like Lord Soth in his antique armor. All contrast is a function of painting. I used Frontier Blue for much of the shadows. Reaper paints only and a Round #1. Hope you enjoy. Any and all feedback always appreciated.
  7. Origins 2015 Presence?

    The Origins Site book has come out recently(-ish). Though Reaper isn't in the Exhibitor hall (oh, noes!), they've a full page in the site book saying "Come by and see us at Booth #D-100". Well, the map on page 52 shows D-100 is Upper Deck. #Panic Is this a convention snafu or some sort of "Where's Waldo?" style LARP?

You are allowed to enter miniatures that will also be entered into other contests that might overlap ours. We are not going to police your entries as to when they were started\finished. We hope that people would paint something for this contest and not just enter something they finished a while ago as this is a fun and friendly contest. The judges or Reaper reserves the right to remove entries if deemed inappropriate, but we're pretty laid back here and this is just to cover our butts. The judges and Reaper can clarify and amend rules at will. Basing and Modding Rules You are allowed to use non-Reaper parts for modding a figure. However you cannot change a figure more then 25% with non-Reaper parts unless it's a weapon. Example 1: Weapon swapping-- Always allowed with non-reaper parts Example 2: Adding a weapon to the mini -- Always Allowed with non-reaper parts Example 3: Placing a reaper minis head on a non-reaper miniature-- Not allowed. You are allowed to use non-Reaper parts for basing. No limits to this rule. Requesting Feedback -- Unfortunatly this time around I cannot offer feedback. Requesting Scores -- If you wish to know your score after the contest has ended just send me a PM. These are always available and there's no specific conditions (outside of asking) to get.

  13. Volunteering

    I apologize if the topic is covered somewhere, but I couldn't find the answer to my question on the forums or an affiliated site. If it's already covered, please link me. How does one go about volunteering for ReaperCon? I loved attending this year and would like to give some of my time next year to making it as great for others as it was made for me. Help?
