  1. Attached are photos of a slew of different miniatures and projects I've been working on in 2019. The Battleguard Golem is clearly a Warforged Paladin in my mind as was painted accordingly; he's mounted onto a Frontline Games base. The Jungle Titan is on the base of a Reaper Dragon I gave my son as a toy previously. The Galladoria Games entrances are both attached to Frontline Games Stones Dungeon tiles. The Terratiles are from a Kickstarter that started fulfilling last month; they were a ReaperCon vendor in 2017 and make good stuff! On the CAV Thunderbird and Raptor, I wanted to simulate some lights; not as much love for the Kahn. The Thunderbird was missing a shoulder mount so I subbed in a axehead from a long-age discarded figure. The Iron Golem has inspired a monster in my DND world called a Forgeblast Iron Golem and I wanted to simulate discoloration of the iron as though it is being superheated from within; I also wanted it to look as though heat was trying to escape from a few plate patches. Khai the Huntress from Bombshell is on a metal Reaper skulls base; I painted three of the skulls with a glowing green eye to add more interest. Like everyone else, just trying to be creative, get better and have fun.

    Jasper vs. Rabbit Season

    So, a very long time ago, somewhere around the turn of the millennia, when I started buying minis (not counting that dragon I bought in the early 90s...which I should get around to painting one of these days....) I came across a miniature that would change the course of history! Well, my history anyway, because if I hadn't seen it I likely wouldn't be posting about all these other minis I bought because if it, not to mention all the butterfly bunny effects that that one change would have made to the timeline....but I digress. One that faithful day I spotted the legendary (and apparently back in print!!) Doom Bunny from Ral Partha. I, of course, had to have it. It then sat (as is usual) unpainted for years. Then one day, while GMing a campaign, I decided to run an entire rabbit themed night as we were playing on Easter Monday. The campaign either had (I think, unless this was the first animal night....I think the Bovine Liberation Army came first....) , or ended up having an animal theme for a bit so all was good. I painted up the Doom Bunny and my wife painted up 4 Reaper bunnies from some familiar set or another (must have been one with weasels in it, I needed a bunch of those for a Hackmaster thing). I had a very fun time running the bunnies (unlike the BLA final encounter...anyone remember how long it took to create a high level minotaur blackguard in 3.x? It got critted 3 times in the first round and went down in the second. It got to act once and rolled a 2 or something....but I'm not bitter....) and since that time have gone out of my way to collect rabbit figures of all sorts. So, long story, er, long, it's time to start thinking about painting the rest. A big motivation for this is that I recently went in on a Killer Rabbits kickstarter and have a horde more coming soon. The other motivator to get going was Reaper releasing 03929: Drangus, Duckman Warrior, the hereditary enemy of bunnies everywhere! So step one was to find them. I spent a good hour digging through boxes and I "think" I found them all (excluding any painted exchange figures I may have received due to mentioning in EVERY survey I've done for years). So at the front we have the 4 Reaper bunnies and the Doom Bunny. The grey resin is Bombshell, as are their little doom bunny and jackelope (it still counts!) sidekicks. The right side are all Darksword. The left in front are Oathsworn. Back left there are 6 spear bunnies that I believe were Ral Partha from the same era as the Doom Bunny (they have the same shields). And at the back is Nibbles, from CMoN's Arcadia Quest, which a friend ordered for me with their KS order. BTW, if you know of any other bunny figs, feel free to mention them here, or PM me directly if you prefer. I'm always on the lookout for more. Up next will be bagging all the multipart figs now that I've got them sorted, then figuring out what to start with. That may not be a quick process, but I'll (theoretically) get there.
  3. And I *THINK* this should be the last of the SPACEFUTURE posts for a while (at least until I get the insect faction done). Reaper's Frank Russo, Mercenary Hero (50044) is a great sculpt, with a Superman jaw and muscles and a well-stocked utility belt. I think he was meant to be a gritty, grimdark superhero/villain/antihero after the line of Punisher or Crossbones or Reaper (dude comes with an extra head with a skull mask). He's a good Special Operative, but I wanted to put some color on there, dammit! The result is more "The Incredibles" or Spaceman Spiff than "secret agent." (Here's the sort of thing I imagine is a slow Tuesday for this guy: ) I got a regular, non-Wastelander Maelee from Bombshell a while back. A gorgeous sculpt; tried to do her justice. She, too, looks like she lives a life of vaguely futuristic adventure and excitement...more on the engineering-by-the-seat-of-her-pants, Ms Fix-it side of things than the fightpunching and pew-pews, perhaps. More rogue/bard than fighter, as it were. And then there's the last of the Zombiesmith Mad Scientists...now, again, I can't PROVE anything, but I'm willing to bet the sculptor was not unfamiliar with the "Invader Zim" cartoon. Clearly a genius, clearly unstable. Capable of working technological miracles. BUT while all of these look good and pulpy and retrofuture-compatible, they didn't *quite* match any of my existing spacefuture human factions (Galacteers, Space Communists, Wastelanders). So what do you do with a bunch of misfits? Put them all on the same team! And look at that: we have a fighter, a specialist, a wizard...just need a healer to round out the traditional party. And I found a metal Baymax for about a dollar... TASK FORCE GAMMA!
  4. More denizens of the post-nuclear hellscape, though they could also work well as SPACEFUTURE COMMUNISTS OF MARS ("Keep the Red Planet Red!"). Wasteland Maelee and Ivan the Mutant occupy opposite ends of the Nuclear Glow-Up spectrum. First, Ivan. Painted him ages ago, mostly in washes. This is another of that 3-pack of mutants from Pinnacle's "Hell on Earth" line. He has a bad case of Gnarly Arm, and those veins look like they might be infected. On the other (giant, mutated) hand, everyone likes a guy who can bicep-curl a tractor. Bombshell's own Wasteland Maelee, by contrast, is looking fine. Mechanic and fix-it gal of her settlement, her skills are always in demand. That colossal wrench is good for braining radioactive monsters, too, and she has the arms to swing it. She's one of my most recently-finished minis and I have to say I am not displeased! Used some flesh-tone wash to give her a set of sick abs, and used 'Ardcoat for bright eyes and lip gloss. I could do a close-up of that face without shame. The thing under her eye is supposed to be a band-aid, I think.
  5. Truly delightful sculpts by Bombshell that work well for a Weird West of gun-toting saloon gals and persnickety varmints. The sculpt listed as "Warfare Wombat" is clearly procyonid and in no way meant to represent a marsupial. Thus does copyright law make fools of us all (well, all except copyright lawyers, I suppose). While he might have been intended for a spacefuture setting, that uniform with the two rows of buttons looked like it could be retconned for a strange American Civil War. So I slapped together a half-assed kepi from greenstuff and painted him in Union blue. I didn't want to obscure the markings on his forehead, so the kepi is being blasted cartoonishly back by recoil. "Rocket's red glare," indeed. Eloise Covington is much more refined, all flounces and furbelows, bustle, ribbons, and lace. Still, she is one determined lady, and a mean shot! The pink-on-pink color scheme is admittedly rather tacky, but tacky in a recognizably Victorian way. Eyes didn't come out too badly on her either.
  6. Robots of standard tabletop size: Reaper's ALF-24 (50138) and Marie, She-Bot (50246). These models are manufactured to work as humanoid assistants for general-purpose work, especially work that requires human interaction that humans don't particularly want to do. And here are a pair of smaller models: Bombshell's HLP-R and MIN-E bots. These two were created for small-quarters general purpose operations, and also for interactions with children. (Children will trust little buddies more than they will grown-up Authority Figures, was the idea.) Side note: I love that the HLP-R bot has the same feet design as the Hydra WarBot, and the fist-pump on that MIN-E bot is great. That little metal tic-tac is adorable. And here's the whole nuclear-powered family! Side note two: I would totally read this cheap paperback if I found it yellowing in a used bookstore:

    Bombshell 2 Relic Meagan

    After making the base for Culk the rake, I made a bunch of others and painted some minis to put on them. This pirate from Patrick Kieth's second Bombshell Kickstarter looked like she would work well with it. Couldn't really tell where her eye was, from some angles it looked like one was sculpted and others like her hair was supposed to cover it all. It actually doesn't look too bad zoomed in right now. Not quite as good from this angle. Got to use some of my Breast Cancer Awareness pink for this mini, which is always a treat. This is also my first attempt at dark skin tones.
  8. Victoriana from Bombshell Miniatures, sculpted by Patrick Keith. This is the figure I entered into the Miniature Monthly Masters painting competition. I really like this sculpt, and in fact I bought two more of her to paint just last week! Some of her WIP photos are here: WIP
  9. Here's another fearless deep-sea explorer, Bombshell's Vivian Gale! I probably could have given her better eyes, but it'll do for now. Blue reindeer moss is great for undersea coral.
  10. Here's a quartet of medical staff I started last winter and finished just before Reapercon. The psychologist is metal, I got him off the melt table last year. He came with the "carpet" base The female in the pink lab coat is from Bombshell. I fear she does not approve of the crazy lab tech's methodology.

    Qadira of the Sands, Bombshell

    This young lady has Strong Opinions and is prepared to express them in incisive and cutting fashion! Her patience for foolishness is...minimal. Got the eyes right purely by happy accident.
  12. This is a Dragyri Warrior ( I believe) from Dark Age, he was sent to me by @malefactus a while ago to contribute to my Lost World Project. WIP: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=117 In my Lost World he is Drakh a mutant turtle warrior. He has a pet Meso, a Raptor Hatchling from Bombshell Miniatures. Base is made with a Greenstuffworld Roller Pin and some tuft/flock. Here they are, the last pictures are with my Jungle Photobackdrop Board to show them in their natural habitat. Enjoy!
  13. This is one of my planned dioramas for ReaperCon. It is going to be a post apocalyptic 'bot shop featuring Bombshell Miniatures's Maelee and an assortment of robots. Right now the structure is built and partially painted with some weathering started. Still need to put a sign together but other than that, all construction is completed. What color do you suggest for the bricks/stone? The walls are a faint blue which is hard to see in the photos and will have rust effects like the roof. These are most of the 'bots as well as the workbench. The Maelee I am using is in my travel paint kit so I did not get her out for the photo. Do you like the two toned 'bot or should I go with a solid color? Any other suggestions would be welcome!
  14. I've had a chunk of antler sitting in my drawer of basing materials for years, waiting for the right figure to use it on. I recently acquired the Bombshell Miniature Morihalda bust, and inspiration stuck! The antler was cut at a weird angle but I was able to use a hacksaw and a miter box to square off the top. I have the dilemma of trying to figure out a) the right orientation of the bust to the base, and b) if I want to fare in the bust pedestal to the antler using green stuff. I plan on putting a couple of pins in her base, and then matching sockets in the antler. I figure I can blank off the top of the antler with shrink wrap and then do the sculpting work (if I choose to pursue that) which would enable me to separate them again for priming/painting purposes. Anyway, I've come to you brave forumites for advice! I've got four pictures attached showing the four possible orientations of the bust/antler. Let me know which one you think is the most appealing choice! I'm partial to #3 myself, but my wife likes #4.

    Wu Ling Shu

    Finally getting around to posting my ReaperCon 2017 entries. This is the one that was selected for judging, and was awarded a silver (low silver). Received great, actionable feedback from @Kuro Cleanbrush. Comments and Critiques welcome.
  16. Yes I decided I need to begin my work so I can hopefully finish up an entry for Bombshell Miniatures, I decided to go with Qadire of the Sands. I gave her skin a base coat and painted up her eyes. Well I thought I had, until I looked at her eyes blown up. I think I need to reexamine her left eye.

    Tammy the Tank Girl

    Finished my first mini from the Bombshell Babes III kickstarter. Isn't actually one of the new ones. Just one of the previous minis. Tried to get a bit of muddy, just been out in the tank feel to it. Actually mini from Bombshell Miniatures website is 36032 - Tammy the Tank Girl The picture from behind is a bit blurry, but am sure you all get the idea :)
  18. This is my rendition of Bombshell 10035, Kaitlin the Archer. Nice and clean mini without too many fiddly bits, so she painted up pretty quick.
  19. BABES III September on Kickstarter by Bombshell Miniatures Bombshell Miniatures is very excited to announce Babes III coming to Kickstarter September 19th 2016.

    SG's Spring Projects

    Finally decided it was about time for me to start another WIP thread. I have not done much since ReaperCon and fell into a major painting rut. I had a bunch of ideas but no energy to actually do anything. I am starting to get back into the swing of things and have quite a few projects on deck. No real deadlines for them, just working on what I feel like it at this point. I would like to finish the Landsknecht and The Grudge in time for the SCAHMS show on the second weekend in April. So here is my current line up of project with the breakdown of what's what below. 1. Vampire Hunter (Reaper 60164) - originally was going to be part of a vignette for the Valentine's Day contest but I did not finish in time. Mostly base coated with shading and highlighting done on the cloak. Really happy with how it turned out as I tried something new for me by using purple in the shadows. 2. Hellknight Captain (Reaper 60127) - Second figure for the vignette. Pretty much the same as the other, got through the base coats and cloak then stalled. 3. Halmar, Young Wizard (Reaper 03449) - Playing around with my new Scale 75 paints and is only partially base coated. 4. The Girl (Bombshell Miniatures) - Had a color idea and wanted to test it. Mostly base coated and started working on the skirt. 5. XVI century Landsknecht (HistoricArt/CoolMiniorNot) - Only partially assembled. Stalled a bit working on it as when I first attached the torso to the legs, it was out of alignment. Had to redo it and that resulted in needing to do some putty work. 6. Mousling Knight (Reaper 03542) - Just a fun one I felt the urge to do and is only primed at this point. 7. The Grudge (Reaper 30014) - Another one that stalled during prep. It had some casting issues that I needed to clean up and I did not care for void areas that I think were intended to look like dirt. So I smoothed it out and that took a while. I primed it after taking the picture.

    Gabrielle

    My final figure for 2016, Gabrielle by Bombshell. I slightly altered the position of her arm, and changed her stance by basing her on a step, so it looks more like she is running, rather than lunging. Really proud of her face, I used a magnifying glass in addition to my usual painting glasses, so I could get the detail.

    Sarayad (dryad)

    One of the last pieces I painted for 2016, a sarayad, or noble dryad from DGS Games. She is going to really surprise some PCs one day.
  23. Finished up Geirahod tonight! Here's pics, words tomorrow... George
  24. Since I want to bring a Bombshell mini to Reapercon, and Glacia isn't movin' my Mojo atm, I started on Geirahod... Eyes are GW Scorched Brown, MSP Linen White, and Scale 75 Tesla Blue Skin is Arabic Shadow, which seems to be my new favorite skin tone base coat.... Got the Blues in her eyes with one try..... (Will never happen again...) I found it interesting that the details of her face don't show up well in the pic on the Bombshell site... They look very soft in that pic, to me anyway... Comments and Critiques welcome!

    Shanna the Cave Girl

    So here is Bombshell Minis' Cave Girl, as inspired by Shanna the She-Devil, an old Marvel character recently resurrected for Savage Wolverine. No, I haven't completely gone off my anti-basing rocker. Yet. I have a cool idea to make a small scene with her...but it'll have to wait a few months. So I figure I'd rather put here here in Show Off for folks to get inspired to paint some of the Babes up. She was a pretty quick paint for me, about 6 1/2 hours, 1 1/2 of which were on the eyes. Just wanted something to shake off the rust from my brief hiatus. Hope you enjoy it! WIP here
