  1. Maledrakh's 77493: Brain In a Jar

    It’s a Brain in a Jar! I have always wanted a brain in a jar. So I can have a safe place to keep the moonshine, you can be quite certain that nobody is going to mooch off it when it is in there together with that thing... This one comes from the Reaper Bones 3 kickstarter and I simply could not wait any longer to paint it. It is a giant brain, though. The legs stand at about 5cm in diameter. 77493: Brain In a Jar Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS. Bonesium PVC sculpted by Chris Lewis
  2. Lidless Eye Hobbies: Castle Stoneskull

    I hadn't even realized when I began on these three that they were all from the "Castle Stoneskull" expansion from Bones III. It was a great set for adding to the random encounters for an RPG. These guys may represent some of the high-level dangers that one could encounter while dungeoneering in Castle Stoneskull! The Behir. I've been wanting one since a buddy pulled one from the first Huge set of D&D prepaints. They even show up in Pathfinder's "Reign of Winter" and D&D 5E's "Storm King's Thunder", if only I had had this guy in time for those campaigns! Brain-in-a-Jar. While I was hoping this would be a human brain, it's still a really cool design. I wonder why the legs are traditional bendy bones instead of the hard plastic that makes up the rest of the mini (minus the squishy brain), though. The mighty Minotaur! Bones has a lot of representations for Minotaurs now, almost as many as Orcs or Goblins. There's the one from pre-Kickstarter, 2 adventurers in Bones II, and the whole set of Minitaurs coming in Bones IV! Plus all the Beastmen if you want to count them, I've seen them used as medium Minotaur PCs enough times. This guy is my favorite, though. Must be the Gladiator armor.
  3. Thanks for taking a look! Any advice/comments/criticism is welcome! Hi all, I've recently started painting some of my minis (finally) and also got some friends to help. Below I'll show everything thats been done so far, before likely making a showoff thread for the done done ones (some are aaalmost there, need a few more touches. My Work: (2nd mini ever): 77503 Temple Dragon : - I wanted to do some complimentary color on him but couldn't quite decide where. First thought was underbelly and underside of wings, but glued together the underbelly is incredibly hard to paint. I was also considering the larger left and right spines down the middle and/or maybe just the bones/claws that extend from the wings(bone color?) He seems to photograph better than he looks in standard light, hes a bit dark, so without lighting for taking a picture distinguishing much on him is not all that easy. 77506 Kobolds (6): (3rd mini ever) I am trying to somewhat emulate the Kobolds painted on the Bones 4 page ( https://www.reapermini.com/bones4 ) Just starting on them, got a darker skin tone and tried dry brushing over with a lighter, but its hard to keep it localized on such a tiny mini. Painting these seems like it's going to get more frustrating than it is rewarding.. :/ Trying to do linen white for the cloth with maybe a sepia wash over it, then steel for the armor with a black wash Friend 1's WIPs: (He's painted minis before) 77492 Behir: I think he's planning on touching up the mouth area 77494 Dire Bear: I think he wants to differentiate the fur a little more, it's a bit too uniform 77496 Eilluvasheth, Succubus Queen - Wings look great - I think he's not sure how exactly to translate the color scheme/design to the body Friend 2's (new to painting, first minis): Adventurescapes Barrels and Chest: 77382: Vernone, Ivy Crown Knight (Second Mini) 77498 Werearmadillo (3rd mini) Friend 3: (has painted some in past) 80046: Gray Alien Warriors 77493 Brain In a Jar : Needs to paint the bottom clear plastic piece the same metal as the rest of it Thanks for taking a look! Any advice/comments/criticism is welcome! Ignore these -- Too many attachments, can't seem to figure out which ones to delete
  4. Brain in a jar (77493)

    From Bones III. More at the blog.
  5. Brain in a jar

    As the shipwreck golem is almost finished I thought I would move on to the brain. It has quiet a footprint so I went with a large base with an apocalyptic feel so here's what I got so far. Vinyl tile is wonderous for road sections
  6. Brain in a Jar - Bones 3

    So decided to do a quick experiment. I really wanted there to be actual fluid in my brain in a jar. So I decided to test out Vallejo Still water mixed with transparent blue paint. What I didn't think about was the fact that its air tight in there...so the Still water will never cure....Sooo....oops It could cure I don't know but it might takes days....months...or even years...I also used as little paint as possible and it ended up a bit less translucent that I would have liked but that's ok.
  7. I managed to finish off my set of 12 thralls for the Space Cadets: Away Missions game. These guys are mind controlled humans who effectively act like zombies until you cudgel them over the head and rip out the mind control device. I am not too proud of these paint jobs, mostly because the washes were too uneven. Hopefully I can improve on that when I tackle the aliens. Thematic Paint Used - Alien Flesh...on the helmets. Yeah I know. Next time I'll do better.
