  1. Since I didn't have enough project already... Here is a little something on the side.. Dee Dee Astro Girl. Also starring The Bones Eye Beast who will reluctantly donate it's eyestalks..
  2. So, I got this pretty cool figure a few years ago at my first Reapercon. I don't think I've ever seen him painted up, so I figured I'd give it a shot, and I'll be bringing him to this year's 'con. The base on the figure was slightly miscast, so I removed it and attached the figure to an urban rubble base ('old factory' by Basicks). His pants are painted up in an WW2 German 'ambush pattern' camouflage scheme. Because I'm a glutton for punishment, I decided to try some freehand tattoos on him. I'm doing something vaguely reminiscent of the tribal tattoos that George Clooney's character had in From Dusk 'Till Dawn. In the movie the tats were on his left arm; I'm doing them on the right 'cause there's more room there. I also added a word tattooed onto the fingers of his left hand. ....and that's where I'm stuck. I know I need to try to do something to make 'em look they're under the skin, not just painted on top of it, but I'm not sure what/how to do it...I tried what I thought was a light wash; that ended up looking terrible. I ended up repainting his arm, it was that bad. (On the plus side, I think the second version of the tats looks better.) So please let me know what you think, and any advice would be great;y appreciated.
  3. Bug Spray

    Bug Spray from Bombshell Babes minis. Think maybe need to do some more wet gooey look on the base. Not 100% happy with it atm. Is missing that...something.
  4. Alright, he's done! This little guy is a gift for my computer repairing friend, who has dealt with my computer for far too long. He's an uber nerd. I tried my hand at NMM again on the pistol. This time I didn't quite go all the way to black, sortof. I used a super pale blue-gray, then washed with black, and highlighted with ghost white. There is a wee blue part on the back of the pistol - those are my friend's initials. The figure in the store page that's painted has the hands as just hands, but I saw extra wrinkles and decided to make the hands gloved instead. Would have been too much of a pain to file them down to hands, I think. Impression I was going for with the outfit was sweater, jeans, gray coat, black gloves and boots. I considered putting 5318008 on the calculator, but my brushes complained about that, so I went with pi. Still working out the photography aspect, but these aren't too shabby. Unfortunately, I accidentally got my fingerprints all over the outer lens of my nice camera when disassembling the lighting setup after this photo >.< The lens stuck to the light ring and it was so clear that I didn't notice until I bopped it with my greasy mitts. Link to the WIP:
  5. I am going to be gluing this guy to a clear round base; the shoes will be painted last after I dislodge him from the tiny bit of metal used to hold him. I don't do much basing so I avoid this type until I find a perfect figure for my needs like this. This fellow will be a gift for the nerd who has been repairing my computer. Thinking blue hair, green skin, red shirt, gray coat, jeans. The eye turned out okay. Face is alright so far. Just started the sweater, but then I started hacking up a lung and stopped. It is tough painting right now as I sporadically am having hideous coughing fits. Both that and hot toddy remedies are bad for painting :( Anyway, current WIP. My rainbow fairy should get some updates tomorrow.
  6. Quirky miniatures of Grey aliens as characters such as Santa, pirate, Einstein, etc.
  7. 50017 Sligg Soldier

    Sligg soldier I painted up a few days ago. The base is from Secret Weapon.Tabletop work as usual,I hope you like him. I'm trying to work on my pictures more; which set looks the better, the first three, or the last two? Front Back Showing the base a little better
  8. Visitor - an ub3r showoff

    A really fun little project I couldn't wait to do once SGHawkins was kind enough to give to me at ReaperCon after she saw my disappointment in not seeing it before it was sold out. I also asked Andy (Talespinner) to mod it for me by sculpting on some hair and an evil goatee! Anyhow, here's the "Visitor" that we all may not want as a real dinner guest! The figure is the 2.5 inch resin kit from Collapse Industries, under the title of "Interstellar Interloper Roswell 1947". He is SHINY on purpose. I coated him in realistic water to do this. C&C are welcomed and appreciated!
  9. Alien Bust -an ub3r WIP

    So while at ReaperCon this year one of the vendors was selling various sizes of this Collapse Industries Alien Bust. I completely missed out on him and was a bit sad/disappointed about it when SGHawkins showed him to me claiming she purchased the last two of him. When she saw my disappointment, she laughed and tossed one of her two my way. I was super excited, it's outside my genre, but looked like a lot of fun to paint. I was suddenly struck with an idea to give him a bowl haircut and evil goatee. I approached Mori, but she was very busy with classes and art stuff so I figured why not ask another forum friend and amazing sculptor Talespinner if he'd be willing to smoosh together the mods. He was more than happy at my crazy idea and did it while I was in a class! Again, THANK YOU SG & ANDY!! Here's the WIP for this fun figure!
  10. These are two official, licensed Doctor Who figures from Black Tree Design: DW405, Zygon, and DW424, Zygon advancing. The Zygons are sneaky shapeshifting aliens who sometimes make an uneasy alliance with humans. In classic old Doctor Who they are mucky brown-beige things. In New Who they are more purply and speckled, and not always evil (although they look it). All of Black Tree Design's line is from Old Who. These are very much old-fashioned stuntmen-in-rubber-suits aliens. Nevertheless, I painted these up more in keeping with the New Who colors because I think they are prettier. The paint job is pretty simple, and I would have called it a speed paint, except it was four months between when I started and finished them. WIP thread here.
  11. 80039: Bathalian Exarch

    Part 2 in my Bathalian installment series. Went for purple for this guy. Maybe I wish he could have been a bit brighter, that maybe I should have started out with brighter purple shades. I only have a few purple triads and I rarely get them to look exactly the way I want. But I'm super pleased with the light blue/purple lines on him as a nice contrast, so I think it's okay in the end. Thanks for reading, comments and criticisms and suggestions are always appreciated! (Especially if you have some MSP purple triads to recommend, I only have nightshade/imperial/amethyst and regal/monarch/royal, they are good for a lot of things but sometimes turn out too dark or too pastel and I struggle with layering them).
  12. 80040: Bathalian Primarch

    Here is my completed Bathalian Primarch. I started going more of a dual color approach at first, but didn't like where it was going. So I pretty much just ripped off Canuckotter's excellent bathalian (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69926-80040-bathalian-primarch/). Not much to be said. I'm happy with the way it turned out, but nothing amazing. Thanks for reading!
  13. Mawloc, GW

    Finished the last model in my Tyranid army for now. All hail the King and Queen. :)
  14. 15mm Alien Paint n take

    This was another mini I did at Odyssey con in April. I don't remember the company any more even though the Paint n take people told me who it was. He's from Micropanzer Very quick simple tabletop job. He'll fill in for many small multi-armed creatures of weird origins. possibly the most useful paint n take.
  15. 50250 Sligg Squary Herder 1/2

    Went with the classic colors here.
  16. These are two Zygons, classic shape-shifting monsters from the British cult TV show "Doctor Who". They are genuine, licensed by the BBC, official, NOT knock-offs from Black Tree Designs: DW424 (Zygon Advancing) and DW405 (with raised hand). Zygons have appeared both in classic Who ("Terror of the Zygons", 1975) and in new Who ("The Day of the Doctor", 2013, and "The Zygon Invasion" / "The Zygon Inversion", 2015). Black Tree's sculpts are all old, dating to the '90s, and only cover the earlier period of the show pre-hiatus. These Zygons are based on the rather rubber-suity original series versions. First I primed them white, washed them with Burnt Umber, and mixed an unattractive flesh color for them, with a redder version over their suckers ... or whatever those are. IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT BLACK TREE DESIGNS: They have a line of 25mm "Doctor Who" minis covering the classic old years of the show, from the first through the eighth Doctors. They are not too bad -- except for the female companions -- and they have a lot of classic monsters. HOWEVER ... Every time I have ordered from them the order took ages to reach me and every order that arrived was botched. If you don't mind the risk of having to chase things down for several months, it is nice to be able to get genuine Daleks, Cybermen, etc.
  17. GW, Tyranid Carnifex

    Latest addition to the family. Still waiting for my 60mm bases.:
  18. Did this Hive Tyrant yesterday/today. He is magnetized to be able to switch between legs and wings. The 'not alien' head is from Epoch Studioz. Overall, I am really happy with this one. Edit: Updating the post with the based miniature. It has some drool, now, too! Alternate version, with all magnetized parts switched out:
  19. Genestealer Matriarch, GW

    Finished this fellow last Thursday during a GW painting event: Update: Made this fellow a sort of display base, so he can adorn my shelf in all his splendor. :P
  20. 60004 Squidman Bombshell miniatures

    Check out the big brain on Brad.
  21. Hey all, Been a while since I posted a WIP, but I'm working on one of the ReaperCon resin exclusives and I'm keen for some feedback. I'm pretty much done with the skin and hair so far, but I'm keen to hear what people think of it. In particular I'm trying to think more about how hair should be highlighted, but blue hair is maybe not the easiest to do that with. Also worth noting that the green eyes don't pop as much as I thought they would, but I'm not disappointed (at least not enough to try a do-over). Might have needed to add some white to the green. The yellow cloth has only had a single coat of base colour so far, to give me an idea of how it's all going to look, and the headdress, collar, bracers, weapon et al are going to be silver. Not 100% sure on what colour the boots will be yet, but my wife suggested making them silver as well which could work; any advice for painting metallic cloth would be appreciated. I kind of like the slightly Martian look that the base has so far, so I think I'll continue in that direction.
  22. For my Spring Exchange, I had RomulanCmdr and knowing she likes sci-fi stuff, I embarked upon a journey to paint up a piece that I thought she'd like. I had gotten Sally Starfield a while back (she's a bombshell babe sculpted by Patrick Keith) and this particular figure inspired me to think about where she'd be and what she'd be doing. Figures: Sally Starfield by Bombshell Miniatures - SKU# 10002 Bones Chthon by Reaper Miniatures - SKU# 92639 Without further ado, here's the story of Sally Starfield and her encounter upon Planet 045Z-Beta. Encounter on Planet 045Z-Beta Sally Starfield, being the lead scout, was selected to visit Planet 045Z-Beta to search for any intelligent life upon the service as the scans from orbit indicated that in the absence of life, the planet was rich in resources. Scans couldn't penetrate the strange radiation coming from the planet to determine life though, so Sally was selected to go forth and explore. She walked along the desolate surface for a while when suddenly a hideous creature sprang forth from the ground. It was clicking and clacking it's huge mandibles and a green ooze was emanating forth from its body. Sally quickly drew forth her laser pistols and took aim...
  23. I'm putting together a Lovecraftian themes group for a game and have been painting some Bathalians. Here are two Primarchs, an Exarch, a Centurion, and a Hound of Tindalos. One of the Primarchs is metal and the other is Bones. Can you tell which? I used these to experiment with new washes and colors I rarely use. I still have a handful of Kulathi to paint to round out the group. Here they are with Cthulhu.
  24. GW Genestealers and Tyranids

    I noticed some 40k stuff posted here, and wanted to show off these conversions I made from amazing bits; previously created by Epoch Studios. The miniatures below are used in our Necromunda games, and in Tyranid Attack. An older board game release:
  25. Bones Gray Aliens 80045, 80046, 80047

    I'm continuing on my goal of painting up the bones expansion 3 for use in an x-com game. Today I have the gray aliens, I ended up basing them with Mars rocks because they were molded already standing on rocks.
