  1. General Drake: 50147

    General Drake: 50147 Sculpted by Bobby Jackson Woah! This was a miniature that I put on a shelf for WAY to long. I'm glad to be done with him. Really enjoyed this one. And no that is not a snake at his feet it is a cable... but I realize now it looks like a snake. Oh well. I hope you guys and gals enjoy it. I tried to make the brim of his cap look reflective. it turned out alright. The back drops are Hanger18, FYI. Action pose! WORK-IN-PROGRESS for General Drake
  2. 03682 Willow Greenivy, Witch

    Taking a break from flailing about on Bones to take some time and flail about on metal. Here is “Witch”, as the blister says: Her pointy hat inspired me to paint her up as a Black Mage from Final Fantasy. However, that plan went out the window when it encountered her clothing layers. So I took the opportunity to play with Yellow a bit. Probably needs a lot more work but I’m limited by my paints at the moment. Not the greatest job, but I am happy with the end result, especially the Browns. C&C appreciated.
  3. I've been on a painting tear since ReaperCon. Here's one from last week. Pathfinder's "Iron Gods" Adventure Path crosses over into science fiction, including robots and androids, such as the android priestess Meyanda. Wayne Reynolds painted the cover of the Adventure Path where Meyanda appears: click for link. Bobby Jackson sculpted the character. I like what he did with this delicate sculpt. I decided to give her a sci-fi-styled base, not my usual rock/grass/leaf palette. I started with a piece of plasticard shaped like square floor-tiles, gouged out some scratches, and added some debris (a robotic "piston" of two brass rods, a "cable" of brass wire, and a few chunks of rubble that I carved from the plasticard). Enjoy, Derek
  4. 77085 Townsfolk: Wench speedpaint

    Trying my hand at speed painting. This was not done in one sitting, but total time was about 2.5 hours, which is less than half the time it normally takes me to paint a thing. Not perfect, but pretty darn good (for me, anyway) for the time spent. Here is the Wench: Didn’t plan anything out beforehand; color selection was spur of the moment. Her dress is Royal Purple with Nightmare Black shadow, and some BCA Pink mixed in for highlights. Top and apron are Lantern Yellow up through Candlelight Yellow. Tanned Skin triad was used for her flesh, and various leather colors for her hair and accessorizing accessories. Highlights didn’t really work out around her backside, but there was no time to fret over it. And you can’t really tell from the awful photo, but I finally managed to paint a decent eye. And forgot eyebrows. Whoops. C&C welcome.
  5. 01450: All Hallow’s Eve

    I painted this lovely lady over the last week as my first project post-Reapercon. I wanted to apply some of the things that I learned but also have fun with her. She was a really great learning experience, thanks to everyone who gave me great feedback in my WIP thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/77557-01450-all-hallow’s-eve/&page=1 This was my first experience “flying blind” with NMM, as on previous attempts, I’d followed the highlighting of other painters’ examples. There is no painted example in the store yet, so I had to just wing it. @Kuro Cleanbrush gave me some much appreciated advice that I’m definitely going to keep using moving forward. This was was my first attempt at OSL, it’s not perfect by any means, but I’m pretty pleased with it. Let me know what y’all think, criticism is always very much wanted - it helps me learn and improve!
  6. 01450: All Hallow’s Eve

    So between the Swag/VIP bags, paints that I bought at the convention and raiding the $1 paint bin at the Reaper Factory, I came back from Reapercon with around 40 bottles of paint. So the first hobby related thing I did after returning was to reorganize my paint racks, especially since they were a ridiculous wreck because I’d torn them apart while repainting Ma’al Drakar and then even more packing up paints to bring with me to Reapercon (which was pointless since I only painted in classes lol) While doing so, I discovered that I also hadn’t sorted and put away my Malefic and Fairy Flesh Sets, which are Vallejo paints branded for Nocturna. I felt really inspired looking at those paints and that’s how I got going on painting this little lady. Something that I’m really prone to doing is making what I’m painting really laborious and it takes so long that I get sick of painting it and it either ends up on the Shelf of Shame or I slog through it and end up unhappy with the results and/or end up taking a long break from painting. I don’t want to do that to myself anymore. So what’s the least exciting part of painting? For me, it’s laying down basecoats. It’s boring, it takes forever, and so more figures than I’d like to admit have gone on the Shelf of Shame during the basecoating process because it just took too long and I didn’t feel inspired anymore. So something that I’ve seen done a lot by painters who are far better than I is to paint sections to completion or at least near completion before moving on to the next part. That seemed beyond my capability because I thought I’d be too messy and ruin a completed part with a sloppy basecoat or just a slip of the brush. Then I realized, first of all, don’t be so sloppy then, dummy. lol Then I also realized, it’s just paint, it’s ok if you make a mistake that you have to fix. I try very hard not to be a fearful painter because I see people being fearful and it cripples progress constantly. You get stuck because you’re afraid you’re not going to use the right colour or the right technique or whatever and you end up not painting because of it. So I told myself “It’s just paint, if I make a mistake, I’ll just fix it.” Let me tell you, letting go of that fear has made painting this so much more enjoyable and I have made more progress on her in one day than I normally would have done in a week. Elf being a fearful painter. Sure there are mistakes and some of the blending isn’t 100% where I’d like it to be. But my good friend Skeletor knows already and I need to remember “Progress, not perfection.” So here’s where she’s at right now: So, as usual, my lighting situation and my picture taking are terrible, so things are getting a little blown out colour-wise. Her skin is a little less grey than that in person, but it is meant to be a non-human skintone. Now Im going to try to remember what paints I used. Bear with me because I was just mixing things and not worrying about it. Skin: All paints were from the Vallejo Nocturna Malefic Flesh Set and I was following their “Blue Tones” instructions. Basecoat was Cold Flesh, first highlights with Pale Flesh, shadows with Frozen Flesh and then final highlights with White Flesh. I went back and forth a bunch of times doing half step mixes to blend. Eyes: Good lord. These eyes weren’t easy. Her right one is 25% covered by her hair and her left one is like 65% covered by her hair and that made it pretty difficult to do much detail. After doing the skin basecoat, I blocked in the eyes with Brown Liner, then filled in with Warcolours One Coat Beige, then I did the iris with MSP Lava Orange, Pure Black for the pupil and then only on the right one I used P3 Morrow White to put a tiny reflection dot. Lips: MSP Fresh Blood mixed with I think a touch of the base skin colour and then probably a bit more of the base colour to make a lighter mix to make a highlight on the bottom lip. Dress - Purple: Basecoat of Nocturna Purple Shadow. Deepest shadows were MSP Red Liner, I also did mixes of the Purple Shadow and Red Liner to blend. Then to highlight I did mixes of the Purple Shadow with MSP Retro Elderberry (one of the new LE paints from Reapercon) and the highest highlights had MSP Spectral White added in, but I did glaze that back with Purple Shadow. Dress - Green: Basecoat of Nocturna Deep Forest Skin. Deepest shadows were MSP Blue Liner, with mixes with the base coat to blend. Then I did mixes with MSP Brilliant Green and eventually added very small touches of MSP Ghost White. Chainmail: Tiny, tiny chain mail dots. I had to take my glasses off like I was painting eyes for this. lol I started off with a basecoat of MSP Nightmare Black (all of the blue you see on her right now is Nightmare Black and will be silver NMM like the chainmail) then I used MSP Afterburn Grey (OOP Heavy Gear) mixed with a touch of Pure Black, then straight Afterburn Grey and then straight P3 Morrow White. Lastly I just have some of what’s going to be gold NMM basecoated with MSP NMM Gold Shadow. So what do y’all think? I’m not bothered by hard critique and always welcome constructive comments, so really let me know what you think.
  7. 03762, Shaern Female Antipaladin

    Here are "many" pictures of my entry for the Reaper 4th Quarterly Facebook Group Painting Contest. I wanted unusual colors for the armor and after painting her, I decided to call her "Pink kills". Shaern Female Antipaladin was scuplted by Bobby Jackson. The pieces of monster on the base are parts from Reaper's 03334, Creature Components and 03440, Creature Components II. The first picture was my entry in the contest. Comments and critiques are very welcome.
  8. Statue Forscale

    I was inspired by how the paint combination on the Copper head of my Ma'al Drakar turned out, so I thought it would be fun to turn a mini into a bronze/copper statue! Given that I still didn't have a fully painted Sir Forscale (@Reaperbryan owns all 3 of the ones I've painted to date), I decided it was high time I had one of my own. Those two things resulted in this: I removed him from his broccoli base and glued him onto a 20mm Reaper base, so he'd have a pedestal sort of thing to stand on. He was very quick to paint up, just Green Liner, Copper Verdigris, a light Turquoise Ink wash, then careful drybrushing of Coppery Orange. I had fun thinking about what the wear patterns on a regular statue would be, hence why sections of his base and his right foot are so much shinier than the rest. Because given any flat surface, people are going to sit on it to rest or take pictures, and prominent areas are usually kept shined from people rubbing them. And here's a couple of pics just for fun, since Ma'al is still hanging out on my desk: Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  9. Orson Lugrum, Evil Wizard 03638 by Bobby Jackson
  10. Sneak peak at my "next" project. Custom base that I've been playing with (one of two). I made this from an old medicine jar, dollhouse crown molding (cast into a flexible piece), some strip styrene, balsafoam, smooth cast 300, alumalite quickset, and an old ring. I think that's it. Oh, and some Magic-Sculpt (two part clay) and let's not forget the tree bark. Still some clean up to do and more Magic-Sculpt/sculpting to bring the top (ground) piece together with the mountain.
  11. Reaper Bones, Bobby Jackson sculpt. She was an uphill for me. Pretty happy with the end result, that being all that I learned with this mini. Thanks for stopping in. Joe
  12. I speed-painted these over two afternoons to be a party of NPC adventurers for an eclectic mash-up of Exalted and the World of Darkness. They are 77322, Kassandra of the Blade (sculpted by Werner Klocke); 77405, Aeris, Female Elf Ranger (sculpted by Julie Guthrie); as-yet unnumbered Mythos figures based on 50032: Jake Ryan, Hero Explorer (sculpted by Bobby Jackson) and the Victorian Lord from the set 50326: Victorian Lord & Dame (sculpted by Bob Ridolfi); and 77409, Flara, Elf Heroine (sculpted by Werner Klocke). WIP thread here.
  13. My GM needed a party of NPCs fast for a game of Exalted set in the World of Darkness (think fantasy characters popping up in a modern day world, more or less). There was no time to order anything, but we had the handy new Bones III core and Mythos sets. These are the Bones minis 77322, Kassandra of the Blade (sculpted by Werner Klocke); 77405, Aeris, Female Elf Ranger (sculpted by Julie Guthrie); as-yet unnumbered Mythos figures based on 50032: Jake Ryan, Hero Explorer (sculpted by Bobby Jackson) and the Victorian Lord from the set 50326: Victorian Lord & Dame (sculpted by Bob Ridolfi); and as a free bonus 77409, Flara, Elf Heroine (sculpted by Werner Klocke), who was simply a "Vale Swordsman Elf Grunt" in metal (she was the first character picked for the one represented by Kassandra of the Blade, and I painted her up anyway as an extra and useful figure). I painted these really fast -- for me -- in two afternoons, one to prime and paint faces and one to paint the rest of them. It's not quite my one-hour robot speed paint, but for me it was super fast and the results are more tabletop-quality than my usual run. First I washed and primed all the Bones with Reaper's Brown Liner. I did not clean flash up as much as normal owing to the tight deadline. Skin work, using simple mixes of earth pigments plus white: Burnt Umber (for the darker skin tones), Burnt Sienna (for the pinker, lighter skin tones), Red Iron Oxide (for really pink skin) ,and Yellow Ochre plus Titanium White. Hair was laid in with the same palette plus Carbon Black. Rough shading with ruddy Burnt Sienna-Titanium White shadows and greyer Burnt Umber-Titanium White shadows. This character, a former Fae, has dramatic blue-streaked hair. This is a classic mix of Phthalocyanine Blue and enough Titanium White to make it opaque.
  14. 60073 Stag Lord

    Finally finished this guy up for my current campaign I am running. This was a real labor of love for me. I absolutely love the model and loved working on it even though it seemed as though nearly everything that could go wrong, did. From missing part (quickly replaced because Reaper is awesome) to paint cracking, to one antler wanting to continuously fall off, to problems with the basing (caused mostly by my trying to rush last night to get it done in time for today's session). All in all I am pretty happy with this guy considering my current skill level (not very high). My only regret was not noticing that the right eye socket (left as you look at it) on the helm had a bunch of extra metal debris in it until it was too late. Couldn't get it off without risking breaking the model and unfortunately that prevented me from giving it the green glow that is in the other eye socket and where the nose would have been (to represent magic in the helm). I do wish I had more time to better base the model but I just ran out of time. I also realized the value in basing it first and painting the model on a separate holder (cork, bottle cap, etc.), and will definitely be doing so with future models! Regardless, he can now die with honor this afternoon! At any rate, thanks for looking and as always I appreciate any comments or suggestions for improvements. I am always looking for new techniques or ideas on how to improve my current techniques since I am still so new. WIP can be found here. Special thanks go out to @Xherman1964 for all his suggestions as I was painting this guy up.
  15. 50321: Wild West Missionary

    I picked this guy up at ReaperCon a few years ago, got him to about 90% then left him for a while. I wanted to do NMM on the gun barrels, but decided that enough was enough and finished him while on vacation last month. My favorite part is the crazy eyes. Usually a simple black dot in the center of a white eye is wrong, but here it’s right :)
  16. This was my very first commission! One of MrBoot's coworkers was wanting a painted figure for gaming purposes, and my husband volunteered my services, for a small fee. I was more than happy to oblige. This was a (for me) fairly quick and dirty paint job. I spent maybe 4 hours total on it, with the first hour spent just prepping (washing, drying, trimming mold lines, priming, waiting for primer to dry, etc.) My goal was "decent tabletop" since it was intended for gaming, and the guy only gave me $15 for the mini+paint job. I did email him pictures of a couple of my other quick paint jobs to let him know what to expect before I started, and he said that he was happy with that level of detail. I'm happy with my color choices, and I at least made an attempt at highlighting, so while it's rough in these close-up pictures, it doesn't look half bad at arm's length. I wish I'd taken a close-up of his face, though; since it's so shaded by his hood, and won't even be visible on a gaming board, I didn't bother painting an actual face face. It's more of an impressionistic shaded blobs sort of face, but it looks surprisingly decent from even a short distance. You might notice some bubbling here and there, and that's because I did a gloss sealer coat (Reaper) for durability, followed by Brush-on Sealer to make it look nicer. I've done very little with gloss sealer, and didn't discover that it bubbles a bit more than the brush-on until it was too late. It's not super obvious unless you stare at it closely, though. I also want to note that gloss sealer is...super duper glossy. Like, seriously. In fact, I was worried that the brush-on sealer wouldn't be able to tone it down, but a slightly thinned coat (with two coats in a few still-shiny spots) did the trick far better than I'd expected! Overall, I'm quite pleased with how he turned out. He was a very fun sculpt to paint, and I enjoyed employing a "good enough, git 'er done" mindset. Main colors used (since I was focused on going fast, I didn't do my usual "take notes as I go", so I'm recreating this from memory + the bunch of paint bottles still on my desk) Robe: Ritterlich blue, Ultramarine blue, Ultramarine highlight Cloak: Rich green, Christmas wreath, either Leaf green or Grass green Skin: Leather brown, Elf flesh, Caucasian flesh Various leathers and woods: Mahogany brown, Oiled leather, Golden blonde? Boots: Brown liner, Dark elf highlight Hair: Coal black, Powderburn brown, Golden blonde Arrow fletching and gems: Carrot top red, Lava orange, Explosion orange Various metallic objects: Tarnished steel, Ancient bronze, Dragon bronze Ground: Drybrush of: Highland moss, Pale lichen, then either Leaf green or Grass green I admit to being rather astonished at just how many paint bottles I used on this one simple project, but in my defense, since this was my very first commission, I wanted it to look at least somewhat nice (in the hopes that others in his gaming group might be interested in the future ). Plus, I really had a whole lot of fun painting this guy. I looooove Bobby Jackson's sculpts, he always has so many fun details to play with, without being exceptionally fiddly. After it was delivered, MrBoot reported that the recipient was very pleased with how it turned out, and was "super surprised at all of the details" I'd painted on it. Apparently, he's used to prepaints. We actually ran into him at the grocery store a week later, and he again expressed how much he liked it, and how detailed it was, and that other people in his group might be interested in getting painted minis for themselves! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  17. Hosilla, Reaper Miniatures

    Hosilla from Reaper's Pathfinder miniature line. Or the curious case of the miniature that looks better in the pictures than in real life! I painted this some while ago (last august) to be a stand in for Talis, a villain in the Horde of the Dragon Queen DnD adventure. I was rather pleased with the result except for how the face turned out. I think it looks similar to those "doll faces" that you see on the Wizkid produced prepainted DnD and Pathfinder miniatures. Strangly enough that doesn't show up in the photo. So this is the first miniature I've painted where the photo is better than the actual result :D
  18. 60066 Mites x2

    Here's my latest newbie WIP. Trying to take some of what I learned from the Bones LTPK2 and apply it here. These little guys are for my current Pathfinder campaign. As you can see here, I've started on the prototype to see if I can get the skin coloration (primarily) and the rest of the scheme looking more or less right. I intend to have fun with these guys as they are meant to just be sort of the red-headed step children of the fey world (at least among the evil fey anyway). Needed two sets of these guys, so normally you only get 3 in a package. Will get around to dotting the eyes of the prototype mite, and am thinking a bright green for the cloak, but not sure how that will look next to the blue skin. Trying to avoid red though simply because red and blue are always my go to colors, and want something a little different this time around. Going with the blue skin though because per the lore, they are in fact blue. Think of them as evil smurfs. ;) Anyway, base coat on the skin is Heather Blue for those who are wondering. Thanks for taking a look!
  19. Hi Folks! I wanted to share some pics before I send off my painted mini for the Secret Sophie Holiday 2016 exchange. I used 100% Reaper paints and the colors I used are listed below. See my work in progress photos here. Reaper Paints Used: Corporeal Shadow Clouded Sea Brown Liner Dark Highlights Desert Stone Driftwood Brown Aged Bone Linen White Royal Purple* Blue Liner Pure White Golden Shadow Elf Flesh *edited to add gem color
  20. Decided these two went together, with the grandmother figure maybe working in the innkeeper's inn, and painted them with the same colours. Quickie paint jobs for both. Not thrilled with the way the green turned out...
  21. Hiyo! I started working on the second painted mini for the upcoming 2016 Secret Sophie exchange, Arthrand Nightblade from the Warlord series. He'll hopefully make a great ranger character for my mystery partner! While there are many great painted examples of him already, I wanted to paint him in something other than greens and browns. I chose a blue and cream color scheme for my main colors– the rest will be neutral browns. I'll paint lighter, worn leather (or maybe linen?) wraps around his quiver and darker browns for his boots and bow. I still haven't decided on his hair color though... More to come after the Thanksgiving holiday! I hope everyone has a lovely weekend. Thanks for taking a look
  22. 77142: Townsfolk: Blacksmith

    Yep, another of the townsfolk! And another relatively speedy paint job, probably about 3 hours total. If I could stop messing up the things I'd just finished so I didn't have to redo the mini half a dozen times, I'd probably be downright fast at this point... I'm finding the greyscale+glaze technique particularly useful for leather... I've always struggled to get decent highlighting on leather, but I feel like this is working out pretty OK. Thoughts?
  23. 77090: Mason Thornwarden

    This one took a little longer. As usual, I got a fair way into it and realised I'd messed stuff up and then had to go back and fix stuff. So, y'know, good times. Pretty typical for painting. A lot of it was done with the greyscale+glazing technique (that I'm pretty sure has a name that I've totally forgotten) but I keep forgetting to push the highlights really high and the shadows really deep, and this one was especially bad for that. Still came out half-way decently.
  24. 77086: Townsfolk: Strumpet

    Painted this one a little while back and never got around to finishing up the base. That's done now, so here she is! (Another relatively quick paint - probably 2 hours total, if that)
  25. 77140: Townsfolk: Village Rioter

    Painted this guy up pretty quick on the Hangout the other night. Not the greatest paint job ever but for 2 hours total, I think I did a decent job. Amusingly (at least to me) I keep forgetting that I haven't actually painted his hair. But I think it looks decent as is so I left it alone.
