  1. Howdy, Finally got around to her... Thank you, Kev!
  2. 01588: Ungorth, Cthon Summoner

    Hey all! Got this resin fig at ReaperCon 2016 and decided to base him using a Basius basing pad with some swampy/murky/creepy terrain. My goal was to emphasize that this disciple is unconcerned with his cleanliness, and is a deadly foe. I managed to work up a color scheme that speaks to faded Christmas colors which led me into an adventure idea wherein this summoner is bringing a twisted version of Krampus into existence for the holidays
  3. It's safe to say I had an amazing year. I learned so much in 2016 and hopefully I can learn more in 2017 and continue to improve. These pictures are in no particular order. Edit: Oops, I just noticed that 11 of the first 18 minis I actually painted this year, in January. This is why I should have put this post together sooner. Oh well. Less those minis, the rest I painted in 2016.
  4. 2016 Figures Painted

    A wee bit late, here is a visual roundup of the miniatures I painted in the 2016 calendar year. I got off to a rapid start by attacking my Shelf of Shame in January, finishing 39 half-started figures by the end of the month: The whole Scooby Gang, female magicians and pirates, a small squad of driders, a few good monsters, some utterly enchanting Tom Meier elves, and some useful fantasy, modern, and sci fi characters. Things slowed down considerably after that, but I got some good work done in several pulses. Chaoswolf's lovely Box O' Goodwill project dropped some old school lead in my lap, and I enjoyed painting those sometimes chunky, sometimes elfin vintage figures. Summer brought some useful dungeon wall and floor terrain, which I hoped could be used for figure photography as well as gameplay. Some Doctor Who miniatures new and old were next, and the year's painting finished up with some cowboys converted to Githyanki and one magnificent and three slightly ridiculous vampires.
  5. Picked this one up at Reapercon 2016. She had that New Orleans Witch feel... :)
  6. Otherworld Iron Golem

    This is the only mini I finished in December of 2016, but at least it was a larger figure.... Otherworld Miniatures Iron Golem (SKU DM32d) on a 2 inch diameter Reaper base. He is painted using mostly metallic paints.
  7. Here is a group of speed painted bones skeletons I painted back in February. I spent maybe 4 hours total on all of them. I am still planning on adding some plant materials to the base. Skeletal Spearmen (77001) Skeletal Archers (77017) Skeletal Swordsmen (77018) All the bones skeletons I have painted so far: And all the skeletons I have ever painted, because I love me some group shots. The ones in front (and back) was painted over 20 years ago, before I started basing. Miniatures from Grenadier, Ral Partha, Rafm and of course Reaper.
  8. This is the bones version of Pathfinder Seelah, Iconic Human Paladin (Reaper Bones SKU 89011). this is another on I finished in November 2016, but didn't get around to taking pictures until now. There were some issues with the bones material on this one, the nose was flattened a bit plus there was some pitting. I was happy with the freehand, its a bummer it is off center. But she is good enough for tabletop, and she is off the Shelf of Shame.
  9. Ral Partha Hippogriff

    This is the classic Ral Partha Hippogriff (SKU 11-441) from the awesome Dungeons and Dragons line. I finished this up in November last year, I just got around to taking pictures.
  10. What I painted in 2016. Xherman1964

After being rushed to the hospital complaining of breathing problems while making funeral plans for her daughter - Carrie Fisher who died as a result of a heart attack which happened last Friday and passed away yesterday - Debbie Reynolds has passed away from a stroke. She was 84. 2016 is going out with a bang, crazy this last week... glad I'm not a celebrity!

EX: Highland Moss - doesn't say green, and thus doesn't qualify. Good luck
  15. CAV: Strike Operations at ReaperCon 2016! For this year’s ReaperCon I’ve decided to try something a little different than what we have done at in the past. Rather than schedule “hard†events at specific times we will running a variety of events throughout the entirety of the convention so people can come and go as their schedule permits. We found this format worked really well at CAVCon and am excited to see how it goes at ReaperCon 2016! This year’s events will include: Featured Organized Play Event CAV: Strike Operations “The Battle of New Vesta†Malick Pass After the disastrous march across the Treark Plains, the 7th Dornheim Brigade “The Iron Shieldâ€, pushes on in their attempt to capture the starport at Goltek City. The Adonese fire-base at Malick Pass continues to fire volley after volley of cruise missiles at the 7th and every attempt by Ritterlich fighter-bombers to take out the facility have been unsuccessful with heavy losses of aircraft. The 7th’s commander, Brigadier Molden Franz has sent his 12th Regiment to climb the mountain and take the base from the Adonese defenders, elements of the Regiment 14 “Iron Wood†and mercenaries from Ophelia’s Orphans. EVENT INFORMATION: Our featured scenario this year carries over story elements from our last Kickstarter, allowing players to participate in one of the opening “salvos†of the First Galactic War! Check in at CAVHQ to see scheduled start times. CAV: Strike Operations Open Gaming Players are encouraged to bring a Force Group of 5000 TVP of their favorite faction (per the Force Group Selection rules, p. 39 CAV: Strike Operations. Upgrades and Force Group Specializations are in use) to face off with other players throughout the show. Various gaming boards will be available for play to allow players a chance to show which faction rules supreme! CAV: Strike Operations Basic Training Join us as we drop new recruits into the “fire†as they learn to pilot a CAV for the first time outside the simulators. Drill instructors will be available throughout the show to teach pilots the basic skills required for playing CAV: Strike Operations. EVENT INFORMATION: No experience required. This event is designed to teach new players the basics in CAV: Strike Operations and typically will be completed in 30 minutes or less. All materials provided. Certificates for completing training. CAV: Strike Operations Paint & Take A great opportunity for miniature painters, new and experienced. Talon Games & Reaper Miniatures has provided a collection of prepared CAV miniatures, paints, and brushes for this event throughout ReaperCon 2016. Attendees are welcome to come in and paint the provided miniatures with the provided supplies. After painting, you get to take the miniature you painted! CAV: Strike Operations Open Painting Looking for a place to work on your figures during the show? Want to exchange ideas and maybe learn a new technique or two? Then this event is for you! Throughout the show tables will be provided for attendees to sit down and paint! Reaper Master Series paints will be available for you to use as well! CAV: Strike Operations Painting 101 Sit down and learn from the pros! Professional painters will be available to show you their best tips & tricks for painting CAV figures. CAV: Strike Operations Terrain 101 Learn to build many of the common terrain features found in a typical CAV game! CAV: Strike Operations Modeling 101 Throughout the show CAV lead modeler Chris "Thudgun" Lewis will be available to show off new models currently under design and answer any questions you may have! The Future of CAV:SO Sit down with lead game designer Jon "CAVBoss" Walker and find out what we have in store for the future of CAV:SO.
  16. Been working on a few big stompy robot designs since June, with an eye towards making my own independent faction for CAV, but also making them generic enough to be used elsewhere. This is the first one I've picked to work up fully as a ReaperCon entry, and be printable from a more-or-less standard 3D printer. The thing I've found is that curved shapes in the vertical axis really don't look that good. Too many "steps" as the shape is sliced into flat slivers. So, the trick was to print all the curves and other angled items along the plane of the print bed. Here's what the CAD looks like (PTC Creo Elements Direct Modeling Express 6.0). Each color is just making it visibly separate from the adjoining pieces, and doesn't mean anything once it is printed, as you can see all the blue pieces below. It's not all of the parts, since I forgot to take the picture of the other lower half. But, it is now all glued together, and some of the very flat parts were sanded smooth. I set out with the concept to also include some standard modelling items, so the barrel of the gun is a 5/32" (3.97mm) brass rod. I've got a couple of other ideas on some other little battle bots that use common items too... I just need to figure out what those common items could be. First shot shows the crewed side of the upper body. The gun itself is centered over the legs, and it is currently modeled in a split leg configuration. I've got it worked up that it can stand on two legs, as shown in the CAD render above. All that would need to be done is to swap out some short pegs that pin the joints together with some longer ones that go through both leg pieces, just for alignment and stability. Then here it is from the other side. This contains a fully decorative block of pieces, and the above shot shows a little block of deco as well. My intention is that should I keep making these, I can "upgrade" the later vehicles with missels, gun turrets, electronic suites, and other little fiddly bits. So this would equate to a Pre-Production Vehicle. Fully functional, but not something that'll be sent out and mass produced. One final shot to show the size comparison with a Spectre CAV that I've painted up before. I'm a little worried about how big of a base it'll have to be placed on, but then again, it's in a firing stance, and that's just how big it'll be. I've got the entire figure now drying from the slathering in acrylic gesso, which I'm using as part primer and part gap filler. Not something that would normally be used, but due to the nature of 3D printing, I believe it does well. I did do a couple test pieces back at the first of the month, and found a lot of modelling issues, but felt that the gesso worked rather well for what I wanted it to do. The plastic parts quite often had small gaps where it didn't fill in all the way, which I later changed in a couple small pieces to be 100% infilled internal spaces rather than the default 15%. I'll wait for everything to dry, then give it a good sanding. I might do a second coat as well, I'm not sure, but I really like how it came together. That is, once I got some epoxy glue that would actually work.

  19. Do you want to Run a Game? By Game, we mean Any RPG, any board game, card game, or miniatures game for which you need table space and up to 6 chairs. We are making a few changes to how we register games you'd like to run. This year we have a link on the Reapercon.com website for events to be submitted. It will reduce the amount of time I'll need to spend on follow up and provide all the information Bryan needs to get your items listed on the Con Site. https://reapercon.com/submit_games Until we approve your completed form, please do not solicit for players as your event is not confirmed. With the venue change, tables are fewer and your event is not a sure thing until we get back to you. I won't be accepting requests via comments in thread or via PM. If and only if you have questions about the form, please email me: ladystorm@reapermini.com Please use a clear subject line so my filters don't move you to Spam folders. Thanks, Cheryl
  20. Since real life seems to have caught up to our Resident Sith Moderator, (Was that you Jedi Hamster??? ), I thought that I would put up a temporary post so folks could put there stuff up, and a mod could move it all around later. I have no Idea what bonus and challenges his devious mind had planned, so lets just go with 4 minis this month, until otherwise informed.... George
  21. Mid Year Roundup

    We just passed the halfway point of 2016, so I'm posting a quick roundup of what I have painted so far this year. I started the year with my Conga Line of Doom, clearing out some shelves of shame. Finished minis include: Reaper's Racquel Blackrose, Buccanneer, a Hasslefree Japanese woman assassin, a couple of Reaper's great old Sandra Garrity female magic users: Mishka the Mystic and Katarina the Invoker, an Egyptian-style flame sorcerer, both of whom I painted as somewhat older women, Hasslefree's not-Willow-from-"Buffy", Hasslefree's entire Scooby Gang, a great big not-Lolth (turned around for nudity but the reflections left in because pretty) and Drider swordsmen and archers. Reaper's Professor Laura Pringle (and skeleton), "Karla, Anime Heroine", a modern pewter cast of an old Ral Partha Shadowrun tribute to David Bowie, a sea hag, an ogre, Rex, Dark Future Hero, four exquisite Tom Meier elves from Thunderbolt Mountain, Reaper's Kallaguk, Troll King, Vandora Waverunner, Rosie, Chronotechnician, and Malifaux' remarkable Whiskey (barrel) Golem. Three modern pewter casts of old Ral Partha Shadowrun figures, and some Reaper women old and new: "Sheila Valentine, Archeologist", Sascha Dubois, Time Chaser, Almah, Merchant Princess, Julie Guthrie's lovely Lyrie Akenja, scroll wizard, a beautiful old Dennis Mize bard, and Julie Guthrie's delightful little Valloa, elf thief. Some great old Old School lead, including the Cleric Turning, the Paladin, the Ranger, and the Bard from the classic 1980 Dungeon Explorers #5001 set, a Ral Partha male magic user with staff and crystal ball, a 1986 Grenadier dwarf sculpted by Andrew Chernak, two Grenadier goblins from the classic 1980 Monster set #5002 (painted orange, the classic old goblin color), and a circa. 1992 Metal Magic witch with cat. Some more Old School figures: a lead Ral Partha stage two of the Three-Stage Elf Thief set, a modern pewter casting of an old RAFM female ranger #3903, an old lead Mark Copplestone armored male figher with mace from the Grenadier set #1414 "Fighting Man Champions" from about 1990, a terribly crude old lead evil wizard from Heritage Models from about 1980 or even earlier, a rare early Bob Ridolfi lead ninja from about 1990, a modern pewter casting of a wonderful and very small old Ral Partha thief, another modern pewter casting of Ral Partha's Ciera, Swordmistress, and four elegant wolfhounds from Tom Meier's Thunderbolt Mountain. I seem to have missed Eregris Darkfathom and the Tiik Baron, which I will have to add before the year-end roundup.
  22. The Last Spring Exchange 2016 Show-Off Ever!!

    So, yeah late! But I got my Package and am sending out one in a couple days. So, first what I got... Not sure who exactly sent it, but it is awesome:) And what I'm sending... Dual Wielding Beer and Blade, Kerdak Bonefist from the Reaper Pathfinder line. I'll be sending a few bitz of extras with the package. Hoping it will make them "Howl" in thanks:P GF
  23. Please see the main post here for rules, questions and general chatter, while using this thread to keep a list of links to your show-offs or show-off related comments in a single post: A reminder to please adhere to miniatures posting guidelines as usual. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66365-resolutionary-painting-challenge-2016-chatterquestions/ All the information you need should be here. Your challenge is: 4 Bonus Challenge: All about that base! While 4 is the minimum for the month, this bonus is to have all 4 minis removed from their stock bases and onto newer, non-plain, non-broccoli bases. Whether they be CMON, Secret Weapon, or stamped bases is entirely up to you.
  24. I took pictures of many of the Crystal Brush entries at Adepticon earlier this month. The photos are not always the greatest quality, sorry, but since so many didn't make it onto the official site I figured this is better than not seeing them. There are so many beautiful paint jobs and assemblages! There's an entire album on Photobucket here (mild nudity in one photo). Here are just a few: ETA: Swapped out one picture because of nudity.
  25. I was at Adepticon in the Chicago area earlier this month. I took pictures. The whole album (except for Crystal Brush entry photos) is here, and here are some to look at: The legendary Julie Guthrie and Bob Ridolfi! The Reaper Paint 'N' Take: I took one picture of my work.I brought "Black Moon's Bane", the spelljammer, and a group of my painted minis. I also took Crystal Brush photos in a separate file. Photobucket is being a little wonky, but if I can get them straightened out I will post them by tomorrow. There were so many beautifully painted minis!
