  1. So in my spree to rebase everything I have to round bases I got to this miniature. She has a very, very, old paintjob that dates back to 2011. I took the opportunity to spruce her up a bit. Bit better blending, some color in the sword, a new base, the works. She is kinda nude though, so she is behind the links.

  2. So my OCD has gotten the better of me, I am rebasing everything that is on a square base (my early 'work') and putting it on round bases. This here is Hellborn Troll (the metal version of the model that was later Bone-ified), who I painted as a Ice Troll in ... I think 2012. I ripped it from its base and made a nice rocks with snow base for him. And this is the picture I took of him in 2012.
  3. I'll say right up front that I stole the cloak colors for this young lady from the following posts: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69254-77389-highland-heroine http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71993-bones-highland-heroine-77389 Not completely happy with the free-hand effort on the gold band at the bottom of the cloak, but as she's bound for a tabletop somewhere.... Also, I tried for a redhead, but seem to have a light-ish brunette instead. Finally, I thought about trying for a tartan like both of those, but think that's waaaay outside my skill set right now, so a nice shadow green was enough -- and red sword wrappings and accent hangings onthe sporran just because a girl's gotta have some color in her life! :)
  4. My latest project, complete. You can find the WIP thread here. I did an experiment, using ridges of dirt flocking to hold in water effects. It actually worked out reasonably well, though next time I'll know to build up the rest of the base more. I also decided this one was female, on the basis that she's noticeably larger than the other two. I'm rather happy with how the shield came out here. It looked a bit like a horseshoe crab to me, so I wanted to make it look nice and chitinous, as though she tore it from the back of some great swamp arthropod. My first freehand. It was supposed to be an anchor-shaped tattoo to start with, but I messed that up, and decided to just go with an abstract design. I cheated on the pupils for these guys. I bought a micron pen, and it worked out rather well. I probably would have gone with a solid color for the eyes, otherwise. This was the only one to have any sort of decoration on his integral base. The others are pure broccoli, but he's got a little plant on his. Gave it a nice pale green color to contrast with his scales. The color is actually a mystery paint Reaper sent me. I actually have two bottles of the stuff, from two orders from around the same time. I'll be sad when it runs out. It's a very nice color. And here we have his turtleshell shield. I actually looked up pictures of real turtles and cobbled together characteristics of several species for the color selection and pattern. And here's the whole happy family, together. Touching, really.
  5. I painted 02648: Schumacher, Ranger as my newest player character. I am playing a undead hunter, loosely based off of Van Helsing (movie style). I went with a lot more black then I am comfortable with, just to practice blacks. I am happy with how it turned out. I also gave the sword a weird swirl, because... why not when you are hunting undead right?
  6. My latest attempt - just a lot of adamantium black and a mix of clotted red / deep red with a bit of ruby for all the skull eyes.. He has a bit of a misshapen head, which may be why he turned to Evil - getting dropped on ones head has odd effects, I've heard.
  7. Giant Mountain Troll The Old Troll and the Boar I cleaned, repaired and repainted a long time baddy from our gaming sessions, Reaper's Giant Mountain Troll. He had fallen to the floor a few times over the years and had a gloss coat instead of a matte coat for a sealer. So he was quite due for the treatment. Given his look and feel, I decided to paint him as an older troll. His skin is duller. His hair receding considerably. He hasn't fought anyone in a long time. Even the boar for his dinner wasn't much of a hunt. So he's kept his clothing in relatively good repair and found and made some better furs to wear. He still prefers his old stone axe. He was happy to find some stone laced with mithral to make a new axe head for it though. You can check out the WIP post to see everything I did to get him here. WIP The ol'boy will return to the carry case to stand before those pesky fellas from yonder cities and protect his mountain or wherever he gets plopped down. Enjoy. Check him out in the Inspiration Gallery. (Approved) Added to Thrym's Index of Reaper Miniatures & Thrym's General Show Off List
  8. Hello fellow Forumites! I always enjoy coming back from ReaperCon, as my creative battery has been recharged and I'm ready to paint again! I'm currently working on a special project for someone who plays fierce female barbarian brawlers in her Dungeons & Dragons campaigns. I'm even painting it in her image, complete with upper leg tattoos. Reaper's "Viking Girl" sculpted by Bobby Jackson was the perfect choice for this! I'm still not convinced I can pull off this freehand tattoos, but I try something new in every project and I can always paint over it in skin tone if it becomes too overwhelming. I'm using Reaper's Highland Moss & Pale Lichen for the cloak. After taking Rhonda Bender's "Level Up" class at ReaperCon, I've decided to experiment with more interesting shadow colors in my minis. In the past, I would have chosen a dark olive green for the shadows of the cloak, however, this time I've mixed the mid tone Highland Moss with a touch of Nightshade Purple for the darkest folds and recesses of her cloak. After that, I started to layer in more of the midtone color mixed with Pale Lichen (~50//50 mix). I blend as I go and make my way up to Pale Lichen on the highlights of the folds. While I may go up an additional level of highlight, mixing in some Pure White with Pale Lichen, I'll see how much contrast I have on other sections of the mini once she's almost done. Either way, the back of the cloak could use some additional smooth blending, so I'll be sure to revisit that at a later time. Here's what I've painted so far, each step follows each set of images starting from top to bottom. Step 1: Basecoats & shadows for cloak, hair and gems Step 2: Cloak highlights. Repeat steps 1 & 2 on front loincloth-cloak thingy. Blend, blend, blend... Step 3: Hair highlights (more to come), fur, gems, jewelry & starting on the sword Next up is finishing her sword, then boots, gloves and shield. And then maybe I'll consider giving her some dirt on the bottom of her cloak as a final touch (if I can bring myself to smear pigment over something I've painstakingly blended lol) However, I'm having a hard time deciding where to place her eyes since her hair covers a portion of each eyeball, which makes it especially tricky. I'll need to make sure to leave enough white sclera in each eye to make the direction clear. I'm leaning toward painting her looking left, toward her sword, like she's threatening someone or pointing at something on the ground. What do you think?
  9. Pulled another shelf of shame and lined him. He was primed tan a while ago. I also tried a few skin tones for his base color. I am starting with Reaper Tanned Shadow and I will see what works for highlights and shadows . Stay tuned.
  10. My mom got this mini in Secret Sophie I believe. I swiped it from her as she returns the favor by swiping ones I like to paint for herself. Standard in this house... More phone pics. She is the one where drybrushing finally worked and I can do it with only minor mishaps.
  11. If she's a cleric, I'd really hate to meet one of their high priestess... I've posted a few pics of her before, in my 'Gadgetman! is messing with paints' thread, and even in the SirForscale competition thread, but now that she's finished, she wanted her own thread. (I've been working on her for a couple of weeks now. Speed painter? who, me? ) Can I remember which colours I used? Fur is AP Monster Brown, with the mane and snout getting a hit of MSP Dragon Black. Leatherwork is MSP Bones 09428 Saddle Brown. I kind of like the red tint of this. Her weapon is MSP Honed Steel and Blackened Steel, with a bit of Adamantium Black smeared liberally here and there on the ball. The Armor is AP Weapons Bronze, with the spikes more Blackened Steel. The belly portion I think is more Honed Steel. Her cloth is MSP Bones Heraldic Red. The Base got hit with Desert Sand, some Moss green and Lichen Green. The wash used on her armor and on the base is Coat D'Arms Superwash Dark Brown. The whatever it is hanging on her hip is hanging by something painted in carrottop Red, with Orange Highlight. The roll on her back? It was basecoated with Dragon Black... the rest is lost in a fog... A couple of jewels were made with Tamiya Clear Red.
  12. This is Ingrid, the female viking from Reaper Miniatures. I bought one years ago which after sitting unpainted for to long I finally sold last year. But this year I had a change of heart and had to buy a new one. And now she's finished. Rather pleased with the result, especially with her leather "neck guard". I had some ideas for a symbol on her shield but I didn't dare to try any of them out. So I left it plain for now.
  13. Greetings folks! After a break from painting for several weeks I was struck by the muse once again and threw myself back into the hobby will full force. The result is what you see below: Malek the Necromancer. This being only the 6th mini I have painted I think my skills have improved and although there are some parts of this mini I am not very pleased with, there are others that I think came out better than I had thought. Overall technique wise I think I learned a bit more about thinning my paints and how to (attempt) layering. I tried to utilize color theory but somewhere a long the line my original ideas flew out the window and I kinda screwed up thinking the red would look good (but I stuck with it) The greatest detriment I think is the lack of good photo taking equipment as I feel that the mini does look better in person than in the photos. But I am working with a camera phone for the time being so also keep that in mind. Your comments, Critiques and suggestions are exceedingly welcome. Thanks!
  14. I painted this young lady up for wolfie907. In my head she became Krysta Klaus, Guardian of the North Pole. Not my best photos, but I was rushing to take them before shipping and used my new phone. I want to do her again
  15. Alright I did this for the Fall Exchange. Pictures are courtesy of Knarthex who received him. Mostly because my cameras hid until after I shipped the mini. (stupid cameras) Anyways here are his pics of the Wendigo I did... Heh. He was fun to paint up and I enjoyed it. He wanted a winter/fey theme and one that would work in Reign of Winter... Should I warn him this guy is actually an encounter at some point in the adventure...
  16. Hi all, I recently finished my first commission of Vandorendra, Snake Demon & thought I'd show it off here. The pictures contain reptillian nudity so I have linked them to an external site. Vandorendra front Vandorendra left Vandorendra back Vandorendra right Thanks for looking!
  17. Here's one with which I wound up pretty happy. Julie Guthrie's Ridley Darkedge, Male Rogue. I even kind of gave him eyes. Sort of. Bit of a flaw around the crown of his head, didn't smooth out right, accidentally totally obscured it in the pictures, and it was beyond my skills as a fixer of minis. Love this sculpt all the same, though. Thanks for looking!
  18. Mildly embarrassed to post this on the heels of Derek's fantastic painting of his own sculpt, haha. But here's my take on his amazing mini. Derek Schubert's Tengu Rogue. I straight up LOVE this mini. I was very happy with how mine turned out, to be honest. I was worried about trying to get something going with his plumage, but my initial impulse to use Nightmare Black worked out pretty well, I think. I mixed some gray in with it to highlight the beak, and I thought it worked out pretty well for me. Tried to keep the highlighting on the plumage simple. And I was hellbent to go with white for his top. But, yeah. Pretty happy with him. This was my first time painting on Rust-Oleum camouflage primer (the tan version), and I was pretty stoked about how it took the paint. Only problem, really, was that it doesn't hide my mistakes as well lol. Thanks for looking!
  19. Some goblins! John Manor's Goblin Warriors. (That's Tre, right?) I really dug the savageness of these little fellows. I especially love the bunny. Thanks for looking!
  20. As those keeping score at home surely must know by now, I loooove Sandra Garrity's work. Elia Shadowfeet, Female Halfling Thief, is a fantastic mini, innit? I was pretty happy with how mine turned out, here. Thanks for looking.
  21. Heeeeeey. Been away for a while. Back with different minis, same bad painting. First up is Matt Gubser's Dalyn Talas, Elven Sword Mage. Though this mini was cool (if a little silly) when I saw it; kind of was bummed about the lack of hair detail when I got it in hand. But a lot of that's just my being a bad painter. He was still fun to do up. Trying out a new background for these. Hopefully makes the pictures a little less awful. Thanks for looking.
  22. Hill Giants for my game. Here are the first 2.
  23. The boss man. Looking back, I should have done a more "patchwork" job on the fur with different colors. I can always modify it. But its not really priority.
  24. Hi Gang! It's late/early but I got so caught up in painting, I decided I needed to rejoin the WIP forum It's been too long! I hit one of those "painting zen" places and picked up a Shelf of Shame mini that I started to paint last year, but when I saw Cash's amazing thread in May 2014, I got discouraged so I "temporarily" put him aside. One year later, I'm ready to paint Noreth! I decided his long jacket would be a royal blue and while I waited for the base coat to dry, I worked on his face. Fast forward after an hour of obsessive "...if I just fix this little detail" and I looked up and thought, "Holy moly, now THAT is what I'm talking' about!". I've often been frustrated at my attempts at painting eyes and I'm finally in a place where I can be proud of the eyes that I paint! I joked with @ub3r_n3rd-- the amount of time I spend studying with Derek Schubert at each ReaperCon is directly proportional to how well I paint that next year. However, I still have a LOT to learn! At RC 2016, I might just duct tape myself to him throughout the entire Con. He won't mind... right? (see "Harassment" in your "What NOT To Do at ReaperCon" common-sense pamphlets)
  25. This is going to represent my half elf ranged Ranger, Branwyn in the Giantslayer AP run by haldir. I am quite pleased with her and feel the shadow/washes worked really well with her I may do a few touch ups with her, And I really do need to back up with this camera...
