  1. Well, Randalf Streisand is up next. I am going to use him as an opportunity to try out some texturing. I expect I will be priming him on Wednesday after a bit more cleanup (not the cleanest cast, but not the worst I have seen).
  2. LINK: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2025694581/naughty-gears The Steampunk Busts Girls by Scale75. A innovative project for collectors, painters and even gamers with desire to paint. Large picture of the individual ladies behind the spoiler:
  3. Hair is base coated and washed, vest base coated..

  6. Tuma Windrider from Legendarion. Another joy to paint with much detail. For those interested my WIP: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62313-xherman1964-paints-tuma-windrider-legendarion-bust/ Hope you like him. Personally I was more satisfied with my job on the Hyena then on this one, but he was fun.
  7. This is a heavy detailed bust from Legendarion. Meet Gebhuza the Hyena Warrior. In my mind he's an assassin / Bodyguard type, look at all those knives he's carrying besides his sword, I tried to make him into a Spotted Hyena. Hope you guys enjoy him. For those interested the WIP: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62312-gebhuza-hyena-warrior-bust-by-xherman1964/
  8. WARNING NUDITY so LINKS. EDIT: Since Photbucket got Evil I linked my Putty and Paint Page here: http://www.puttyandpaint.com/projects/15073 This is my first take on a bust. It's from Kabuki 1/6 scale. Since she's a Not Red Sonja, I gave her warpaint like Conan has. I tried a freehand tattoo, it's supposed to be a stylized Dragon/Snake eating his own tail. I had loads of fun painting her. Here Is my WIP if interested. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62241-ky-ra-bust-16-kabuki-by-xherman1964/
  9. As my first finished bust this one was an adventure, some mistakes were made but lots was learned. It was commissioned by a friend as a gift for his fiancee now wife who is also a really good friend. He did not have many requirements, just a similar color scheme to Ben Komets's version. The only variation I wanted to do was the shield design but my friend was ok with changing it. I still almost went with that design but found my way to the one that I ended up using and I am so happy with it. Any feedback is most welcome! WIP thread here: Shieldmaiden Bust
  10. Time to start a new WIP. My previous one crashed and burned fast with the featured projects being tabled for the foreseeable future. My focus now will be on ReaperCon projects, which I will be posting WIPs for soon, and this awesome bust that I call my top secret project. The Shieldmaiden bust from Nutsplanet has been one I have been interested in painting for awhile but never thought I would. Well a while back, a good friend asked if I would paint his on commission so he could gift it to his fiancée. He is also a miniature painter and planned on painting it himself but decided he wanted me to paint it instead. As his fiancée is also a good friend, I said yes. So enough chitchat, here are the first progress pictures. Shading on the skin has been blocked in and I have started blending. Not much to see at this point but any feedback would be appreciated. You are my only hope as Facebook is a no go.
  11. Darth Sana She stared at her adversary with cool and calm calculation, the Jedi was nervous... she saw the fear in his eyes, yes... GOOOOOOD.... fear would cause him to make mistakes.. she'd cut him down with her force-imbued katana and notch another Jedi scum on her belt... She snarled at him, "Come and die, you fight the Sith Mistress!" ---------------------------------------------------- Manufacturer: White Wolf Miniatures 3 parts: Head, body, Sword. Scale: 70mm high Sculptor: Juan Puerta Casting: Sago This was a labor of love and fun for me, I decided as soon as I saw this beautiful bust that I was going to paint her up as 'evil' and the paint scheme that called to me was to paint her up to look like Darth Maul, I added the horns with copper wire and then sculpted them on with ProCreate. Towards the end of the project, I was trying to decide how to display her and it came to me that I wanted to make her part of a story, give her a bit more of the Star Wars tie-in with a completely scratch-built Tie Fighter. The title placards on the sides were designed by my good friend @Thrym and I printed them off on cardstock and glued them onto the plasticard sides of the tie fighter. The scabbard is my attempt at a sort of force rune, it is Kanji which translates into "Sith Mistress." WIP can be found here: Without further ado, I present (Darth) Sana from White Wolf Miniatures! Thanks for looking (and following along), C&C are welcomed and greatly appreciated!
  12. Hi, I love painting Busts and large scale minis ( I blame @ub3r_n3rd). Just finished my 5th. Now which one shall I paint next? I like them all, and have trouble deciding, since I'm a slow painter I know I will be taking my time on it. Here are the candidates. I would appreciate it if you give your opinion. Maybe in a top 3 or something? Here are the candidates Pics in spoilers. Help me decide please. 1. Athena ( Albaster Bust - Greek Goddess of Wisdom) 2. Bonnie Ann Pirate Queen from Kabuki 3. Boxer Bust. ( I will paint it up as my Brutus) 4. Deus Vult ( Crusader Knight) 5. French Imperial Guard 6.Lizard NCO 7. Roman Centurion 8. Viking Beserker 9. Shieldmaiden
  13. *** Rise Creatures of Chaos !!!!*** *** It's time for Mankind to fall !!!*** A while ago I purchased this one through the Bay of Evil. It is supposed to be the Forged Monkey's bust. I have some doubts though. It was shown as an original,but it came without the original packing. Also I had to remove a lot of flash and needed heavy greenstuffing.. Could be a knock off. However I will paint it.. Started prepping.
  14. My good friends over at White Wolf Miniatures sent me Sana as a gift, she's an amazingly clean resin sculpt of a female samurai. As soon as I saw her I knew how I wanted to paint her up. I'm going with a Darth Maul color scheme with red and black and I'll freehand the sith symbol somewhere on her armor. I'll elicit your comments and critiques as I paint her up. Right now I have her washed, prepped, and ready to get primed. As you can see she's nearly 80mm tall.
  15. About this project Painted by - May Aguilar Andreu of MayArt Newly Cast Bust In 2016, our son who has Down syndrome graduated from high school. Most of the options for the disabled are limited so we decided to create our own opportunities for him. My wife left her career and we started Boyd's Toys. We are a small, family run business that specializes in resin cast figures and commercial printing. We do our own 3D printing, mold making, vacuum and pressure casting. John Boyd has over 30 years of printing and design experience and his favorite past time is table top games. We started creating our own figures in resin about 18 months ago on a 15 mm project called Chronicles of the Wayfarer. What is this project? Chronicles of the Wayfarer is a 15 mm war-game that has been under development for over a year now. It has two complete armies to support it and two more on the way. We have decided to release four busts to help raise funds and create a fan base to continue the development of CotW, so stay tuned ... three more are coming. Below you will find a sample selection of our upcoming release of Chronicles of the Wayfarer. These are 15 mm leaders of the Kilnites. Left to right: Knight of the Kiln, War Screamer, Shield Legion, and Crossbowmen Leader. These are submissions from a recent painting contest that we sponsored. For the first 48 hours we will be offering a free 30mm figure of the Lawgiver, "Unmasked". This figure will only be available in one of two ways and will never be sold by us after this Kickstarter. Anyone ordering a bust in the first 48 hours will receive one free. Anyone sharing our Kickstarter announcement on our Facebook page will be entered for a chance to win one of 10 figures. Anyone participating in the Kickstarter will have the ability to purchase additional figures. Once this campaign is done this version of the Lawgiver will be retired and his mask goes back on.
  16. I'm now finished with Nosferatu and have taken final pics. He came out as I intended and I got some very valuable feedback on the skin tones from awesome forum-mates. WIP found here: I present to you, Nosferatu, vampire lord from Green Monkey Models! C&C are welcomed and greatly appreciated! I'm also going to bring him to ReaperCon and enter him into the big figures contest on the forum
  17. As if I don't already have enough projects, I can't keep him waiting any longer! This is Nosferatu, a limited edition bust from Green Monkey Models. I have copy 11/50. This sculpt is amazingly detailed, it's creepy and awesome. I'm going to try out some new undead skin tones on this bust and just have some fun. I'll elicit all of your comments and critiques as I go through this project as well! As you can see he's nearly 90mm tall, a pretty sizable bust. I'm going to clean up the little bits of putty I used to make sure the seams where his arms join his body are smooth and even and then use the airbrush to layer on some primer!
  18. Hi, I think there must be a thread somewhere about this, but I can't find it. Occassionaly I paint busts and large scale figures. Until now they were mostly beastmen, undead and such, just one ( it was my first) human and she had warpaint covering her eyes. I have seen some stuff about painting human faces on this scale, dividing the face in a yellow, a red and a green/grey zone. Could anyone explain this some more? Do you basecoat the face in 3 different colours and then glaze over it with skincolours? What is the right approach? And if it is a large scale figure with bare arms and legs, do these zones need to be applied on the limbs too? And how? I would really want to learn more about this since I have some more busts waiting ( among others, A French Imperial Guard,A Centurion, A Crusader, A Pirate Girl, A Beserker, A Viking Girl, A Hoplite and A Celt) I would like to be able to paint more realistic faces with shadows, stubble, and such. Preferable using Reaper and Scale 75 paints. If possible give me a hint which colours to use in what stage? I would appreciate a nice tutorial or examples, if possible mentioning paint colours/brands.. Thanks in advance.
  19. Well, here are some proper photos of my latest completed work. Burak the dwarf from Mr. Lee's Minis. It was a fun project.
  20. Although now that I edit all the pics to fit in the post I see things I want to fix... sigh. Well, anyway I "finished" her! I learned a lot working on her skin and I'm happy with the colors. This is the Mother of Dragons bust from Nuts Planet. I opted not to paint her as Daenerys. My WIP is here, and I should have all of the color information there, but if anyone has questions please let me know. I'm always happy to explain or try to break the process down. I'm always trying to improve so C&C welcome! I like the walnut base. Here she is up close: and a few other angles. I had fun with the spiderwebs! Here's one to try to pick up the dragon's texture: It wasn't as successful as I wanted but I have to stop painting it and work on something else. Or I will probably wreck it! Enjoy! I'll see y'all in just 5 months!!!!
  21. Event though I need to finish touching up Alicia and finish her base, I have been distracted by this fine gentleman from Mr. Lee's Minis. Still a lot of work to do, but he's coming along nicely I think.
  22. Looks like you will see the process from the middle, but i think it`s not a problem. As you can see, i have added some nice butt to her. That idea was around for some long, as i wanted to sculpt the legs for Boudicca, but decided not to do this (yeagh, if i do so, then i will finish whole series in a thousand years!) Anyway, i think that THIS WAY Lagertha is just good enough. Also, the detailed article about Tamiya putty on its way. See ya!
  23. I bought the Mother of Dragons bust at Reapercon last year initially with the idea of painting it up for my dad (who is supportive of my painting but ambivalent towards painted miniatures in general) as a present since he loves Game of Thrones. But, I just couldn't get in to painting it as Daenerys. It didn't click. So, dad will have to wait for me to find something equally cool. Although I did buy him some of those charity water-dot-org chalices which I'm thinking he'll like better anyway... plus charity! And beer! Right, at any rate, I've realized something about my painting. I'm not satisfied with my skill set. I always want to add to it or work on something new or learn different technique. Otherwise I feel bored and I can't get motivated to paint. So, in my never-ending quest to expand my mind and go all Neo on this bust, I'm tackling darker skin. It's something I am not good at... yet! But, I also wanted to play with the platinum blonde Daenerys hair since it's also new to me. Blonde is not intuitive and I have to think when I paint it. ...and we all know what dark skin plus white hair means... So, I went in search of inspiration. Khoudia Diop is just gorgeous. I loooooove her skin. Hints of purple and red... beautiful! Now this pic I like for the frontal lighting reference but her skin looks much browner. You can still see the purple, but it's more muted. So I'll go with the lighting on the second and the color from the first. I picked my colors and am documenting them so in three months when I get around to working on this again I won't forget! I couldn't find my ghost white when I started painting so I settled on spectral white. And I'm glad I did. It kept with the theme of the purple. I did find the ghost white later, never fear. So, when I paint skin on a bust, I have a huge surface area to work with. Which means I can add a whole lotta depth of color. I can glaze different shades in to my heart's content. I think this is some of what makes skin look more realistic. I've said it before but it never hurts to reiterate- skin is all about layering. Underneath skin lie bones, tendons, muscles, fat, vessels, nerves finally covered by layers upon layers of translucent cells. Which means there's a huge variety of colors in skin itself, not to mention any shadows or light cast upon it. I like using the photo reference because it makes me really look and see where the colors are and where to put all my highlights and shadows. When I basecoat my skin I wet blend. Basically, I take my paint, mix it to about what shade I want and apply, adding a few areas of dark and light to get a sense of the form and the volume. Since I couldn't pick one color to match Khoudia's skin I mixed a bit of the mahogany with the dark elf skin and the nightshade purple. I used a big brush. I have a #6 series 36 (the cheaper ones) Davinci just for big projects like this. Once I got the base down I switched back to my #1. Oh, and I forgot- I sanded the resin bust USING MY N-95 PROTECTIVE MASK, glued the head and the support on (waiting on the hair, etc until I get father) and washed the while thing with dish soap. I filled in a few areas with greenstuff and primed it with reaper brush on primer. Here's me working on figuring out where the highlights go. Faces have planes that form geometric shapes like circles and triangles. Get these highlighted early and it really guides painting later on. I added a bit of the oiled leather in with the spectral white to keep it on the warm side. notice how I may blend a bit, but I'm focusing more on shape. I can always blend later. Besides, the more layers I use, the more realistic the skin looks. And I might earn my 1K Layering Achievement Badge. If only that existed... Not sure I like the eyes. Not sure what color eyes I want but they were just staring at me. I wanted something different that would stand out. Meh. I'll think about it. I used brilliant blue with the spectral white for reference. h ugh, focus off on that one. I glazed in a bunch of the mahogany brown to de-purple-ize the skin. It was getting a bit purple. I also want to have the left side of the photo (right side of the face) be darker since the head is tilted to the side. So I used more brown and less highlight on that side. I put a hint on pink in the lower lip as well as the tear ducts in keeping with anatomy and all that. In typical Corporea fashion I took a break from skin and played with the hair. I had a hard time figuring out the colors for it. I almost used the ghost white, but settled on a warmth using the oiled leather and some linen white with the dark elf skin as a shadow. The three mixed together make this lovely gray. So, that's where I am right now. Hmmn... maybe about 4 hours of work I think, With a few Skyrim breaks here and there. She still needs more red and brown. Waaaay too purple. But that's for next time! Hooray!!!
  24. Despite not having finished my second batch of zombicide abominations, my son has been on me every day since my birthday to work on this piece as he "gave it" to me. Since I fear she's going to take a while since I'm going to really be pushing myself on the skin and the rest, I figure she'll be around a while with breaks to work on other stuff. I also managed to break a piece of the ship while trying to remove the flash so I'll have to do a little repair work on that (put the rest of the ship back in the baggy when it happened as I was really tired at the time and shouldn't have been playing with tiny delicate pieces anyway...). So fare I've cleaned up the pieces of the minuscule amounts of flash/mold lines. Found one tiny, tiny air bubble right at the base of the bust at the back which I will likely ignore. Really amazing casting on these. Of course, like with the tooth fairy, I'll probably find more mold lines after she's got paint on her, but that's the way it goes. Next steps will be to mount her onto something, give her a bath after a last check for any mold lines that need fixing and then another round of test assembly to see how much I'm going to assemble before painting. Thus far I'm tempted to do a full assembly, minus the plume and the ship, but we'll see. Of course, I may have to take some time to find some space to work as this is the current state of my desk... Thanks for looking.
  25. Hello Everybody! Starting from Easter 2017, we decided to begin creating miniatures dedicated to the major holidays. Here the Campaign that will start pn 17-04-2017 at 20:00 CET These limited-edition items will delight enthusiasts, collectors and artists, and the models may even end up on board games if the players can use their imagination. The idea is to bring out one or more dedicated models each year, at regular intervals and for a limited period of time and quantity. After the sales period, models will go into the Legacy Vault, which will remain closed until next event and when it's closed, models inside will not be sold. But what is the Legacy Vault and how it works? Legacy Miniatures are fairly rare and limited models that aren't normally available for purchase in the store. You can sometimes find them in on sale during special events and always for a very short time. The Legacy Vault is the place where Legacy Miniatures are kept after sales period end. Inside this Vault you will find all limited models made during years. Be warned, the Vault may not reopen for future sales, so if you see a piece that you like and are wavering, you'd better not risk it and grab it quickly. There's no guarantee it will be available again next year! A certificate will also be issued with each model, authenticating its number and release of issue. Easter Rat, Troll and Bust are Limited edition to 500 pieces each one, available ONLY from during this campaign and remaining unsold pieces IF Legacy Vault will be open again in a limited period. Let's start with a rabb... no, Rat, an Easter Rat! What's could be softer and more tender than a Rat? So that we don't miss anything, let's move onto the sober Troll. This guardian of the eggs will surely be able to handle them without any breakages! And finally the bust! Models will have a 32-mm scale. However, bear in mind that does not mean that they will measure 32 mm from the ground to the eyes, but rather that they will have the proportions of this scale. A human being is 32mm high from the ground to the eyes, but a troll will be much bigger and a rat man will be a bit smaller. The models will be made in resin and metal, and you will have to make the difficult choice of which material to have. Each model will come with a generic base, but we are sure that the more expert among you will be able to create a small diorama for these limited editions. Anyone who participated in our last campaign, Florence Knights, will have the opportunity to put models from this new campaign in the same package as those from the last one, meaning you will get everything together at once and save on postage! Since this is a campaign with restricted content, as you can see, very few miniatures have been sculpted and are only missing the production. As such, the shipping and manufacturing times are already confirmed. At the end of the campaign, as soon as Kickstarter has processed the payments, everything will be produced and shipped immediately, so you will only have to wait the length of time needed to process the buyer information. What else is there to say? Enjoy the campaign and best wishes for a happy Easter 2017!
