  1. Reconstructed and redesigned in response to your input, Stronghold on the Borderlands has been reimagined as a MASSIVE digital, infinite fort design for 3dprinting. This Design will offer more than SIX TIMES the digital content for the SAME PRICE as our initial launch! Original resin options will also remain with many NEW add-on options.
  2. So I know this will probably date me, but does anyone else remember coloring your dice numbers with crayons? I even seem to remember getting a white crayon in the original blue and cyan (or whatever the color is) DnD boxes:) Those were fun times:) I may even have those dice around somewhere in the garage:) A LOT of dice (I like collecting dice haha)
  3. I painted this guy up for a coworker who wanted to use him in his DND game. He heard through the corporate grapevine I was the "mini guy" and wanted me to assemble this figure plus two adventurers that were from the same promotion. The problem he was running into was that WOTC cheaped out on the production and the figures were pretty terrible. The sculpts were okay but the resin was flexible and full of air bubbles. He had snapped an arm trying to wiggle it off the sprue and came looking for "professional" help. Even my nice sprue cutters didn't help as the foot of one of the other figures exploded after I snipped it off. I came to the conclusion if I gave the figures back to him he might try to paint them and come to dislike the whole hobby so I painted up Strahd (but not the adventurers, he's on his own there). Putting Strahd together was, predictably, a total pain in the broccoli. The back leg of the nightmare snapped while I was trying to get it into the holes on the pre-made base. I had to pin on the fly with mixed results. All in all, it was kind of an unpleasant experience. I think it's the first time I ever hate painted a miniature. I gave the figure to the guy and then he left the company to start a consulting business so I can't get proper photos. I was really pleased with the OSL I was able to do which is why I'm posting it here. The cloak and shield were painted using Wappel's methods with Reaper's clear paints. Looking at the top down pictures I could have done a better job with the OSL on the cloak coming from the tail. Oh well!
  4. So, in this thread I'm documenting my progress at Painting and Modifying a bunch of Minis for the D&D Actual Play Podcast The Misadventures of Max's Minions to represent all of the PCs in it, Past, Present and Future! Several of these are Reaper minis this time around. The Podcast can be found here if you are interested... http://maxsminions.com/ The PCs and their Mini-Minions so far... Sting the Pixie Rogue Dog the Beastmaster Ranger(And his Badly made "Kord Hat".) Salle the Goblin Sorceress? Kildrick the Dwaren Cleric of "The First Church of Kildrick the Navel-less" Stasi Xen the Human Fighter Dana Toren the Eladrin Warlord Most of these are in the earliest stage of work in progress. I thought I might as well chronicle this progress somewhere, so I decided on here. Hopefully, I can get a bit of help and support as I endeavor to complete this project. I already know I need a lot of Luck for this. I'm not gonna ask for anyone to give any of your luck for this. Just asking for a bit of Support and maybe a bit of advice. GF
  5. Greetings! I'm a DM with an obsession for Bones/Reaper minis and after backing the first kickstarter figured I should use them. I had grand ideas for a campaign so I ended up using these minis as inspiration! The campaign was called The Crucible of Storms. There were lots of memorable moments for me and the players: - Orphaned rogue found their father - a miserable alcoholic guardsman - Paladin was taken over by a vilkacis (werewolf ghost) - Dwarven stonelord created a new colony of refugee dwarves - Tripple 1's for the sorceror - Elven warpriest through skill increases and a strange randomised mutation ended up having +50 to Perception - Paladin killed an aasimar child...to buy everyone time to help kill the Tarrasque (his god was unhappy despite the greater good vibe) - The Tarrasque! Such a momentous fight! The final battle was held in a cthulu-esque god-laboratory where the gods invented humanoid races. A portal to the Maelstrom was unlocked and sucked in the Tarrasque, killing it...forever! Here are some photos from the campaign - sorry in advance for some poor quality photos. Cheers! http://imgur.com/a/0YoqA
  6. Hello all! I am a very novice beginner to miniature painting, and have only been doing it for about a year or so. I feel like my skills are leveling up pretty quickly, but still need some advice. My friend is trying to coax me into pen and paper RPGs like DnD and pathfinder, and we are currently doing a pathfinder session. To add flavor to the games and because I like to feel like I'm participating, I'm working on terrain and buildings. The first building that I'm nearing completion on is Tabletop World's Mansion. Because of the large size of the model (and the hope that I'll be getting more pieces, creating a city that will look like it all came from the same forest/quarry/paint shoppe) I went to various Hardware stores and bought actual high quality building/house paint. I'm a little concerned this was a bad move, since I know model paint is specifically made for small scales. The colors for the mansion were ripped from the Winchester Mystery House photos because I love the design and colors. So the main question I have is regarding sealing. I've heard krylon matte spray can leave a sticky residue, and I want to avoid that. I was wondering what sealing spray I should use since I went with actual house paints. Because the parts where the house fits together are extremely snug, my desire is to paint on a gloss coat for the connecting parts, so when the mansion is put together/pulled apart the gloss coat will protect the paint better from rubbing off. Or will it stick together because of the gloss coat? Looking for advice on that. Finally, the wood flooring I would like to look a little more aged. I'm kind of worried about adding grey or white with dry brushing but will probably end up doing that. The wood color was a brown paint I had mixed up at the hardware store, so I figured I would brush some burnt umber over it and then go with some kind of gray and then white for the aged look. This is almost finished, I'm very much a "good enough" worker and hobbyist, and so long as it looks decent on the table I'll be happy. I could certainly obsess over the tiny details for the next 10 years, but I like my sanity. Looking for some advice on the sealing/aging wood though! Thank you for reading my post. Sorry about the length.
  7. Last sunday I ordered Thelgar the Half Orc Barbarian figurine for my brother for our dnd group. When it came in the mail, we took discovered that the hands, which held the axe, were not attached to the rest of the body. At first we thought maybe they were to be attached, with little ball nubs or something. But when removed from the and attempted to attach, we realized that no they just somehow came apart in the shipping. I am very frustrated about the matter and have no idea what to do. I couldn't find anywhere on the Reaper Minis site to get into contact with the people who made the figurine. I'm glad my halfling came in just fine, but I'm very displeased with the fact that the Half Orc was not made well enough to handle being shipped.
  8. So, I come before you with a Challenging Dilemma. I was Commissioned by a representative of the European branch of the D&D Minis Guild to provide a couple of prizes for their Championships in August, as well as a couple of minis needed by that individual for personal use. About a month ago, I was contacted by someone from the North American Branch to do the same thing for theirs! So, my dilemma is this, how do I do both groups justice in the time I have left? Due to Shipping times, I need the European items ready to go by late June at least. That means I'll have time to at least finish the NA Items. But, unfortunately, that means I will not be a part of the Summer Exchange this year. So, As this is a WIP Thread, I am of course posting pics of my work so far;) hear they are... First up is King Snuure, the Fire Giant King! He has one of the best Sculpts of the early DDM Run and catches a lot of the Flavor of the Iconic NPC, including a Cloak made from a White Dragon's Hide! Been wanting to repaint him for ages and finally the time has come. The Human Paladin from the Icons of the Realms first set. The DDM Guild has been releasing stats for the WizKids Line recently and the Pally here is a pretty good piece for the Skirmish game. I painted one for GenCon last year. This one is going to the European Champs. Snig the Axe here. Never did find out if Snig is the Goblin or the Weapon he weilds:P But its a cool little guy and has details i did not notice til now. The Feymire Crocodile. Part Reptile, Part Plant all Sorts of Nasty! Not the best Stats in the Game, but an awesome mini sculpt and a seriously BAD Stock paint job. I'm fixing that with my repaint. Just base coats and the start of Shading here, but already leaps and bounds beyond what it used to look like! So far so good. But I still have several more to work on that I cannot reveal quite yet. Any Constructive Comments are welcome. GF
  9. Hi there everyone! Oakydeer here, and I'm a very very new to the world of tabletop RPGS. I'd always heard of the magical game dungeons and dragons but was always intimidated by it and didn't know when or how to start. But a month ago, I decided to take the plunge and gather my friends for our first DnD session, with me as the DM. And... we all became obsessed. So now, here I am, completelly engrossed in the world of tabletop RPGs and eager to start sculpting and painting my own figures! I'm open to any advice from any of you wonderful veterans regarding anything, be it painting and sculpting, to game tips, to a simple friendly hello. Let's be friends! :>
  10. My New London group that Dad and I play with was today, but dad couldn't come because of work. We found the tiefling we were looking for and she gave us a ring that gave the wearer resistance to ice magic, and because I was the only warlock in the party I got 7 scrolls and 3 spellbooks! We went into the white dragon's cave to kill it, and since what happed next was all my plan I wore the ring. I used hex to give the dragon disadvantage on charisma saving throws, but the DM said that the dragon's stats said if it was hit with hex it would get disadvantage on ALL saving throws. I cast polymorph and suceeded but the dragon had 3 uses of legendary saving! I had my party members burn spells with saving throws until it used the other 2 legendary savings, then used polymorph on it again, and turned it into a fish! We dropped it down a bottomless chasm, but the top of it's so small when the dragon morphs back it won't be able to get out. The DM gave everyone in our party a magic item, but chose them by randomly rolling from 1-100, and ended up getting a 100! Because the whole thing was my plan, I was the one who got to keep the Wings of Flying! We each got 140g, 200s, and 4 precious stones worth 800g each. We also got up to level 9, so I'm gaining a spell, my slots are changing to level 5, and I'm getting another eldrich invocation! I can't wait to tell my dad when he gets home from work tonight. I'm really proud that I've proved I can game on my own and still make awsome decisions. Vanquishing a dragon is a much better achievement than getting your entire party killed. And to think I almost didn't go today because mom was worried about leaving my sisters home alone.
  11. Did some painting this weekend and I was pleasently surprised that I managed to finish my latest purchases, All are speedpaints with a heavy dose of Army Painters Strong Tone wash to finish them. A few gnolls (Gnolls, Gnoll Slaver and Gnoll Warriors) Two grimlocks Two kobold guards Three kuo-toas (one archpriest and two regular) Two lizardman fighters One roper. I'm really pleased with how this one turned out.
  12. Happy Labor Day weekend folks! Last week I completed Brom the Wanderer from Scale 75 for a client. He had a specific look he wanted, and even had some photos of a similar paint job. We settled on price and time alloted to this project, and here he is! The rocks are cork and greenstuff, with some sand and small stones in between. The lava was created using SceneARama realistic water. All mounted on a wooden base. Hope you like him. Thanks for looking!
  13. This is another batch for Cal's Pathfinder game. I've wanted to paint them up for some time, so 2 birds 1 stone on this one! It was fun painting the elder male as it was based on Robert Cruse (AKA Jester), one of Reaper's finest painters, and sculpted by the wonderful Sandra Garrity. I believe she did the other 2 as well. Enjoy!
  14. Here is Eskin, painted up to represent my character in Wandering Through the Forgotten Realms, Jared, a THIEF. The lighting isn't fantastic. As always, C & C welcome!
  15. I was on a roll so I managed to finish another one. Nothing fancy, brown/grey + quickshade for the hull and some more attention directed to the eye and teeth. Easy paintjob with a pleasing result :) And the Beholder Lich as a bonus (I finished this two weeks ago)!
  16. I managed to finish 2 miniatures this week to basic table top (for me) standard. Both are intended to do duties in my DnD games. First up is Razmir, one of the villains from the Hoard of the Dragon Queen module for 5E that I'm running at the FLGS (so good to have one again). She is a resin model produced by Gale Force Nine. Second up is the Bones Tomb Guard, ready for use as an advanced mummy when needed. :) The mummy is on a Back-2-Base-ix dungeon base and Razmir's base comes with her.
  17. I'm kicking off my 5e game tomorrow night *joy!* set in my own home brew world. Starting in a city tavern (city is based on attack on Titan city) and then leading into the first "dungeon" of the lost minis of phandelver. I've asked them nicely for the first couple of session if they could bite my adventure hooks and once we have a firm grasp on the rules it will be a free for all in the city (and beyond) I've got a bunch of stuff prepped like 5 different weapon brands and a few things like that. Is there any last minute tips you would recommend me prepping or anything? I have run 3 campaigns (all 4e) and I'm pretty good off the cuff but I want this one to truly be something special (as I like the system a lot and want my players to be *wowed*)
  18. Just saw that Warner Brothers is producing a new DnD movie. http://movies.yahoo.com/news/warner-bros-acquires-rights-dungeons-dragons-movie-224003769.html So anyone want to give odds on this one being a commercial success?
  19. Hi all, Trying to get my current backlog I brought with me to NY painted down so that I am ready for the Bones stuff incoming sometime in June I expect. First up Barrow Wights! Manufacturer: Games-Workshop System: Lord of the Rings Scale: 25mm
  20. I want to pledge another kickstarter but im not sure which one.. I spent around $300 on reapers and now I want to spend around 50 clams incl shipping to canada (could possibly go to $75) on a few more legit minis, They have to be for dnd campaigns so fantasy only (no guns) and I would like them to arrive before reapers in march, I liked the look of the dwarfs http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/607885648/dwarf-gladiators-finely-sculpted-28mm-resin-miniat?ref=live any suggestions?
  21. Most players will usually amass entertaining stories and anecdotes about their characters, events that happen in game, etc... and I'm always interested in hearing new ones! If you have anything to share or add, please add a post below. --- One of my most memorable characters was a gnome illusionist. He was an odd gnome, though; being a touch shorter than average, and with a nose actually in proportion to his face, many people often confused him for a halfling. He had 12 names and insisted on using them every time he introduced himself, and I gave him a high-pitched, obnoxious voice. Most of the party and the DM wanted to kill him, but no one ever succeeded. In 2nd edition, gnomes had a 20% chance for a magic item to not work for them. Well, I wanted my gnome to have been touched by his deity, a deity of magic, and so he had a surplus of magical energy stored within him. I talked to the DM, and actually convinced him to alter the 20% chance a bit - instead of not working, there was a 20% chance that his natural magic would seep into the item, causing it to explode! I gave him a very high constitution to make sure he could live through that, which was good because that 20% chance seemed to come up 50% of the time. It only happened the first time he touched an item, though; after the first time, he could use it normally. My first adventure with him was a blast. I remember walking into a room, and after the party had cleared it of its inhabitants, we started searching. I noticed an interesting shield on the wall, and was curious about what was behind it. I started to reach out for it, started worrying about traps, but figured, eh, what the heck. I screwed my eyes shut, turned my head to the side, and grabbed an edge of the shield. When nothing happened, I let out a breath I had been holding, reached up with my other hand, grabbed the shield and set it on the ground. That's when I realized that my hands were stuck! I tried pulling them away, but they were stuck tight. So, seeking additional leverage, I put my foot on the shield and gave it a good push, trying to get my hands free. No such luck, and now my foot was stuck as well. The groups fighter sighed, picked me up by my shirt, and started carrying me around. I was basically the handle for his new shield. There was a random encounter in the dungeon, and when I said "Hi!" the local encounter was a bit freaked out by the talking shield. Various minor events followed, and we ended up camping for the night. After the party had gone to sleep, I decided that I was bored with being a shield. I slipped off my gloves and my boot, dragged the shield out using the edge of my boot, then went back to my tent and fell asleep. The party was quite irritated in the morning
