  1. So Saturday (yesterday) morning I finished painting Action Jackson. https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/action/latest/80023 Which is a mini I've been wanting to paint for awhile. It just so happens that Saturday afternoon is when my D&D Adventure League group meets, so before I left I packed up my finished mini to show off and get a few tips from the group's other painters. For the record it was dry before I packed it up. For the last few weeks I've been running our third table; I'm currently doing Horde of the Dragon Queen. During the session the cleric at my table conjured a spiritual weapon. Like a lot of my players he's fairly new so he hasn't bought any minis yet for his PC's so he didn't have anything to represent his conjured weapon either. So when he conjured his spiritual weapon I placed Action Jackson on the field which my players loved. Turns out his spiritual weapon was one of the party's heavy hitters. Which made the figure all the more fun to have on the field. I know I can't be the only one who paints something and thinks they'll never get to use it and is proven wrong. Has anyone else been able to use Chronoscope miniatures in and odd or mismatched RPG setting? Though I love this miniature it certainly doesn't belong in a 5e game, but I'm glad I could use him to comedic effect.
  2. 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..
  3. 50327 Victorian Ladies

    So, My sister has a 'Best Friend Forever', and that friendship has lasted... long enough that one of them has become a grandmother... And my sister had her Birthday recently, and I figured to give her something slightly special... The first... Ice Blue and Moss Green dress. The second: Moss Green and Ice Blue dress... Side by side... And seen from the back: The bases was made as a single base using a Happy Seppuku stamp, cut to size, then split down the middles with a knife. The base material was some cheap air-drying stuff I found at 'Sisters Greene'. PAintjob is Concrete and Rock Grays, and a dark gray wash in the cracks, then a matte varnish all over, with some gloss varninsh added to the cracks afterwards. I probably should have made it possible to remove a mini with it's 'half base' from the plastic base so that it could be placed next to the other, but the base material is just so brittle that I didn't think it would survive very long. The plastic 'stepped' bases comes with plastic domes, to protect the minis from dust. Sorry about the poor lighting. And the focus could have been better, too, but I was in a bit of a hurry to get them finished, photographed and given away.
  4. Andre Durand Conversion 80005

    I did a conversion for a friend of mine for his marvel Super Hero Game he's running. The plan for the paint was to mimic a worn dusty old German Desert Camo and lots of earth tones. The character uses his fists to create shock waves in the ground and near by objects. If you think is is cool there is a lot of stuff on my business's Facebook page Please feel free to follow me for more pictures. ( facebook.com/TabletopGlory )
  5. Rex, Dark Future Hero 80009

    I did a conversion for a friend of mine for his marvel Super Hero Game he's running. The plan for the paint was to give it a punisher feel and he wanted a heart beat logo on his chest like a heart monitor would display. The character uses the power of lightning witch he can channel threw his shot gun. If you think is is cool there is a lot of stuff on my business's Facebook page Please feel free to follow me for more pictures. ( facebook.com/TabletopGlory )
  6. 50196 Devil Girl, Supervillain

    Straight from the depths of hell, it's.........Devil Girl, Supervillain! (cue scary music!) For a change, instead of painting the eyes looking straight on, I painted them so that she was looking to the right as if she just spied a do-gooding superhero & was about to lob a fireball in their direction. The base was created using the Basius "Dungeon" stamp with the river part painted up as lava - I imagined that wherever she walked, the ground morphed into fiery molten goodness. Thanks for looking, comments & criticisms are always welcome.
  7. A couple of quick paint jobs to add to my collection of modern/sci-fi gaming figures. The crate came in the swag bag at Reapercon, it was a solid dark brown and I drybrushed it heavily with a flesh tone to make it look more like wood. Bonnie has no face. I did the best I could with what was there. I put her on a metal washer because she is so light the slightest jiggle flips her over on the table. Frank is a pretty solid guy, OTOH. They are both a little shiny because I sprayed them heavily for table use.
  8. For Minivember I will try to do a different model each day (duplicates or similar models (from the same unit or suchlike still only count as one!). If you want to see the rest of my minivember minis, feel free to have a look at my painting blog..I won't be posting each and every one here, just the Reaper minis and maybe some that I find especially interesting. Yes, they will be speedpaints, just like all my minis. The LAF forum has for some time been running the Back of Beyond painting club, and I would have liked to enter something if only I had a Back of Beyond-themed mini to paint. The theme being "Russian Civil War and Central Asia in the 1920s. Thus you may post everything about RCW or any rumbles at the time between 1917/1918 and 1930 in the far regions of Central Asia, included Mongolia, China, Far East, Tibet, NWF etc. And we're talking here not only about historically correct stuff but also about some Pulpish interpretations of scientific expeditions in this area, e.g. adventurous scientists looking for lost treasures of ancient times". I have almost zero historical minis, same goes for Pulp...so nah. But...after reading that again it finally clicked in my head. "adventurous scientists looking for lost treasures of ancient times"... Wait a minute! I have a Bones mini that fits that bill! Officially named "Frank Buck" I think something along the lines of "Alabama Smith", "Mississippi Harrison" or "Oregon Ford" would have been more appropriate. This is by all accounts Henry, the Raider of the Lost Ark himself, 80033: Frank Buck Indiana Jones Reaper Bones KS2 Bonesium PVC 30mm base
  9. 80004: Sascha Dubois

    My third mini so far. Really proud of the coat and boots. Tried to improve upon the eyes.
  10. 80004: Sascha Dubois

    Needed to paint a back up character for my savage worlds campaign, so picked Sascha Dubois. I wanted to make her a bit more modest than the bikini top wearing miniature (don't need it getting weird at the gaming table) so I carved her belly button off and the middle line of her abdomen and painted over as if she's just wearing a regular top. I like the idea of her as a captain or pilot of some sort, she appears to have a telescope or looking glass hanging off her waist, and I decided it was definitely a compass she was holding. Hair was the fire red / phoenix red / fire orange triad and the ultraviolet blue for the coat. Some of the best eyes I've done in a while, the miniature still retains a lot of detail on the face such that painting on her eyebrows was possible (a step I usually don't bother with). Thanks for reading, comments, criticism and suggestions are always welcome!
  11. Found this guy in a box of stuff. He'd been cut off the base, readied for pins, and primed. I thought at first it was a conversion, because there's a definite line across his neck and I found some putty on the back of one shoulder, but it turns out this is how he looks in the store, too. We always need goons for our current superheroes game, so I gave him a quick base coat and a wash and called it good. He's on a Secret Weapon base I got in their Bag of Crap.
  12. 50069 Zombie Dog Handler

    "What's that boy? You smell something? Oh...........I think that's me! I had great fun painting these two, especially the dog. I was originally going to paint the guy up as a cop but I settled on a regular Joe. The fallen fence is made from a matchstick cut into quarters with a length of 0.6mm copper wire threaded through some drilled holes. Here's some more pics: Thanks for looking! C & C's always welcome!
  13. 50239: Motorcycle by Glitterwolf

    When Peaches heard her man had been drinking Jack Daniels and which part of town he was, she took the Warpig and rode like the wind. Is she in time? If not, the Harley is not too blame. This is a Mean Machine... WIP http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66545-street-violence-by-xherman1964/ DIORAMA http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69093-angel-city-diorama-by-xherman1964-tribute-to-lemmy/?p=1378316 I painted the Motörhead Warpig on it as a tribute. And of course the roads are dirty..so not too clean..
  14. Ladie nr 3 for the diorama. WIP. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66545-street-violence-by-xherman1964/ DIORAMA http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69093-angel-city-diorama-by-xherman1964-tribute-to-lemmy/?p=1378316 This one looks all innocent, but who knows what she is carrying in that little bag of hers? EDIT: Oh Reaperbryan...Reaper DOES make redheaded minis...see???
  15. Nr. 2 of the Working girls. I tried an Asian Skintone. She has a cigarette in her hand, bound to drop it, she might have to get in all Kung Fu stereotype and kick the biker's elf. The Diorama is over the top and meant to be full of stereotypes , it's a tribute to my favorite musician. Lemmy.. WIP http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66545-street-violence-by-xherman1964/ DIORAMA http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69093-angel-city-diorama-by-xherman1964-tribute-to-lemmy/?p=1378316 Here is girl nr. 2
  16. Another one of the participants of my diorama. WIP http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66545-street-violence-by-xherman1964/ DIORAMA http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69093-angel-city-diorama-by-xherman1964-tribute-to-lemmy/?p=1378316 Here is the head lady of the working girls.. Dressed up for the night, I dirtied her boots because of that filthy alley she's been walking in. What were you thinking girl..White boots??
  17. As most of you know by now I've been workingon a Diorama to pay tribute to Lemmy from Motörhead who died way too soon. The Working Title is Street Violence. WIP http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66545-street-violence-by-xherman1964/ It will be called ANGEL CITY for the Show Off and it has it's own thread too. Show Off for the Diorama http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69093-angel-city-diorama-by-xherman1964-tribute-to-lemmy/?p=1378316 Here is Peaches our lovely little Redneck Biker girl, I suspect she got some brass knuckles in her pockets somewhere. Ready to help her guy out.. I ditried up her leather a bit because she's been riding the bike.
  18. I finished my Diorama I made as a tribute to Lemmy from Motörhead. I've put in many references to Lemmy and Motörhead I'm curious if you can get them all. I know some people like Motörhead too and there a few Metalheads around here. So I've put my references in this spoiler. See if you can get them all. The main scene is a dirty backstreet alley, here a pimp and his girls clash with a biker and his chick... turf war? Drugs deal gone bad? "My girls walk this part of town"?? Who can say...in minutes the violence will erupt.
  19. For my upcoming Savage Worlds Mystery Men game I needed some Disco Boys for bad guys. I painted these up real quick, I need a bunch more. I gave this photo a "Grindhouse" look...
  20. Prof. Froschmeister Chronoscope 50061

    So, got eliminated from Wyrd's Iron Painter contest, but I still got the iron ;) so I'm doing submissions just for fun. Since the theme for round 3 is "Wyrd Science", I almost immediately thought of this guy, whom I absolutely love! I've been dying to paint him so he was a pretty obvious pick.
  21. The second main character for my diorama. I believe he also deserve a show off on his own before he gets himself killed over a "this is my turf" dispute with the Pimp. And a little glance at the progress on the diorama.
  22. My exchange recipient this spring was Evilhalfling and he was looking for an example of monochrome. Now I'm certainly no expert on it, but my first attempt worked out ok so I figured I'd give it a shot, and I'd just recently ordered a Rowena for myself (which I still need to remember to order again) and I figured all the layers and textures would make for an interesting exercise in monochrome. (Note to anyone starting out in monochrome, do not start with a figure with a whole much of different layers and textures.... ). She was a challenge for me but in the end I think she came out pretty decent. Part way through I realized I didn't really know how to paint ribbon at all (ribbon isn't really big in goblin or ogre fashion this year...) so that took a few days of research. And while researching monochrome painting a found an interesting video of someone doing a warjack and he used a black/silver metallic with it that I really liked, so the metal parts ended up going that way. Then while asking some advice from the Monochrome Master, Corporea, introducing some brassy colours came up. So overall, quite happy. And if I don't use Pure Black or Pure White again for the rest of the year, well, I''d be ok with that.....
  23. This is Reaper's 50159: Sister Maria, Nun, sculpted by Patrick Keith. I have a friend who once was a nun, who now writes murder mysteries. Some while ago I made a joking reference to my hobby of painting tiny D&D characters and out of curiosity she took a look at Reaper's main site. Which just happened at that moment to have this figure at the top of the page. She was tickled. We are planning a trip by her part of the country this summer, and hopefully we will be able to meet up for a visit. So I am painting up Sister Maria as a present. Basic prep involved gluing her to her base and gluing in her left hand. I chose the ruler option. I had trouble pinning and in the end just glued her hand into place. Then I primed her thinly with Titanium White and washed her with Burnt Umber (not shown). This is my basic prep for all metal minis. I checked with my friend what the colors of her order had been. Then I started with a little white on the nun's habit. I painted solid Mars Black on her dress and along the base edge. I'm a little sorry I did, actually, because it's so black and solid there's little room to go. Normally when I paint blacks I like building up layers of color like a watercolor. Then I did a little preliminary brushing of highlights in a very simple cold grey. This is very rough and crude yet.
  24. 50119 Crazy Pete, Prospector

    Over on the Something Awful forums, they have an Oath thread where you promise to paint a model (taking a time-stamped picture to show it's unpainted at the start of the month) and then get extra points for following the month's "Jurnal" (generally a theme of painting and a technique). This month it was money and a technique you hadn't tried before. You only get one point regardless, but I decided to go for both. For the money theme, I painted the prospector striking it rich with a gold nugget. And for the technical challenge, I decided to try some freehand. I haven't really done much in the way of freehand, and I was struck by Rhonda Bender's version of the model. I decided to try something similar. As you can see, it didn't come out quite as neat and tidy as hers. My lines still need a lot of work. I gave the shirt a glaze of yellow to try and make the stripes look like part of teh shirt, but I feel that may have just made them look muddier. The jeans also have a crosshatch pattern in them. I was trying to copy the way she did the jeans on hers to give it a fabric pattern. Again, my lines aren't quite as tidy as hers. Nor as thin. Still, I don't think it came out too horribly, and it was an interesting experiment. Here's the back view. You can see a bit more of where i was putting the lines on the jeans. He's awfully proud of that nugget. No one tell him it's iron pyrite. One annoying bit on the mini. While Reaper normally has really good quality control, the mold had clearly slipped slightly on this guy, and it took a crap ton of filing and cutting to get get him looking right. The pickaxe still has a pretty sizable gouge on it.
  25. USPS tracking has been a bit uneven for me this time around, but it lists a delivery time of today and has been in the correct town since 4:30am, so I'm going to call it good. It was marked as delivered while I was typing this. If however you go by SGHawkins09 and haven't picked up your mail today, stop reading and savor the anticipation for a bit.
