  1. This is an old mage knight figure I stripped (yes, it is possible. Not easy, but possible. It's also not always worth the time and energy involved) and then repainted. Painted to table top. Let me know what you think. Better view of the base. Yes, it's got eyes, and they're painted!
  2. Kev!'s 77310: Water Weird

    Howdy, My Weird... Thanks, Kev!
  3. 77310 - Water Weird

    Used Tamiya clear blue to coat the Water Weird and Reaper paints for the well and highlights.
  4. My elementals. I'm going to need to redo a few pics for inspiration gallery submission, but good for now. These have only been cropped, unlike most of my pics. WIP
  5. So I decided to do some elementals real quick. I gave them base coat of matte medium - primer for earth, because base coat. Then I attempted the yellow-ning. First it looked good, so I tried to add a little more, mixed with orange tint, and ugh. I think I'd recommend doing outsides red, and then use a yellow ink w/medium as "dry" brush to pick out details. It won't look right, but a lot of the translucents really seem to be table ready.
  6. Lidless Eye Hobbies: The Randos

    A gallery dedicated to the random fantasy guys I finished while I was working on the other themed projects: A bunch of randos: Dolmen from Ganesha Games: A Hobgoblin Wizard, also from Ganesha Games: A Halfling Thief from Red Box Games: A Kraken Cult Leader from Midlam Miniatures:
  7. Maledrakh's 77310 Water Weird

    A water weird is a water elemental that exists within / is bound to a specific body of water and that can give the heroes a nasty surprise when going for a wash or a drink. I made the mistake of using blue ink on this, which turned the whole thing too dark, which I tried to correct with drybrushes of lighter shades, but it seems I just made a mess of it. I salvaged it somewhat by dumping ancient citadel turquoise glaze on it and then gloss varnish to make it look wet. The basin was done with my basic green/gray stone combo. It ended up better than I first feared. 77310: Water Weird Reaper Bones translucent blue from the second Bones KS sculpted by Bob Ridolfi Bonesium PVC 30mm base
  8. Howdy, I'd like to introduce you to Gorignak... Thanks for looking, Kev!
  9. Howdy, Bones rats and translucents... Pic links to full size, Kev!
  10. Swimming holes can be dangerous places in Rokugan. Ive always liked painting elementals, and rokugan has many. The Clan War elementals definitely have a more sinister feel which belie their wicked demonic nature. painting water always poses a challenge. I went with a more green algae pool look with this one, to help differentiate it from my other water elementals that have a bluer hue. It was a nice color palate to work with and I had a lot of fun painting the highlights.
  11. So, although not a Reaper Figure, I did paint him with my new Bones Master Series paints, and they are awesome! Primarily I have been painting Bones minis recently, with few metals thrown in here or there. I got these new paints, and I am super excited about it. This particular piece was done as part of a set (the Scrunt being there as well) for a cursed forest that my players are going to journeying into. I used some static grass to cover the moss on the fig, as I thought it added a little something. As always, C&C is welcomed! Enjoy! Oops.. forgot to post the pictures... CAH
  12. I've been trying to tick off some of those D&D Monster Manual entries, and painted up a bunch of large beasties. I kind of speed-painted these (spent a bit more time on the Oni), but am pretty happy with how they turned out. Feels good to produce stuff for the collection. The Brass Bull is from Reaper of course (the Bones variant), the four-armed ape is from Bombshell Miniatures, whilst the Iron Golem, Stone Elemental and Fire Elemental are all from Otherworld Miniatures and the Oni is from Zenit Miniatures. They're all really cool minis I think. Anyway, hope you like em!
  13. Medium Fire Elemental

    I was interested in trying out the Vallejo fluorescent paints, and saw that James Wappel on his blog had painted the Bones Medium Fire Elemental in them. Heavily inspired by his work (i.e. I shamelessly stole and copied), I tried the same as a little test run (I'd like to use these paints on some bigger fire elementals down the road). The paints were very different to work with, and I wasn't really able to thin them very successfully (using just water). Painting wasn't therefore so much an exercise in blending as it was pushing quite thick paint around and trying to get it where I wanted it. Nevertheless, the paints really glow, and the mini looks quite striking from a little distance on the tabletop. I'll definitely be coming back to these paints!
  14. 77185: Large Earth Elemental

    Attack of the speed painting.. Only took me 2.5 hours x.x Not so speedy. My favorite part is his booty!
  15. Help with Fire

    So - this is my first time "painting fire". It's not bad, but it's not good either... Advice for how to do it better next time? PS. I know that this figure is supposed to be a water creature, but I "made it work" to be a fire elemental lady who's an "ash mage" of sorts or whatever...
  16. 77185: Large Earth Elemental

    I saw this guy in the store awhile back, and I had to paint him. But he seemed too big to be Large, so I decided he had to be Huge. Being Huge (and top-heavy), I also figured that he needed a bigger base to reflect a 15x15' Space. In retrospect, I wish I'd done him with a circular base to have a little less negative space, but overall it was a fun flock experiment. :-)
  17. Magma Elemental

    This is an earth elemental mini of unknown origin. I've had him for years, but never thought about painting him (or any of them really) until recently. I like how he came out, except that the varnish made him really pale. D'oh! The original base for the mini was really tiny, making him prone to tipping over in gameplay, so I wanted a bigger one that was heavier and reflected his 10x10 space. This one is mostly glue and rocks, so it seems plenty sturdy. :-)
  18. Ever since I painted the Large Earth Elemental I thought about doing one up as a Magma Elemental. Pretty happy with attempt. Decided to remove the dinosaur bone from shoulder and make more volcanic. As well as make little volcanos on its back and finger tips.
  19. 77185: Large Earth Elemental

    A couple more firsts on this guy with the gems and the base. And I had a lot of fun painting him. Enjoy edit: So I have to admit I got a little exited playing with new toys last night and rushed the picture process. But I just wasn't happy with how dark they turned out. After another read through of the Miniatures Photography 101 I think I did a much better job today. Now You can see all the detail good and bad!
  20. Bones Wall of Ice 77312

    I'm pretty happy with my Wall of Ice. The WIP is here. I tried doing the highlighting 2 different ways - I described it in the WIP - but I don't remember which is which anymore. I used a variety of inks - I'll have to get back about which ones exactly, I don't remember any more - to try and create some variety in the thickness of the ice, but it didn't work out so well. Edging was done with Reaper Ghost White. There's some happy accidents in there too where the brush slipped. If anyone's wondering, yes this is still see-through.
  21. Hi, I'm continuing to paint my "Forces of Nature" army for Kings of War. Here is the Greater Earth Elemental. The sculpt was OK, but I found it to be too "Rock-ish". (I want an Earth Elemental, not a Stone Golem). So I sprinkled a bit of "dirt flock" to make it look more natural and earthy. I let you judge if you think it worked. For the color scheme, I kept it pretty light as i want it to look more good than evil... (though the rule books states "Forces of Nature" are Neutral...) I also spent some time modeling the base (which I don't usually do for my armies), to keep with the theme of my army (and hopefully please Ub3r). ... And of course, it is only when taking the picture that you realize there is a massive mould line across the face... C&C appreciated.
  22. Love this earth elemental from Shieldwolf. Just wish he was looking forward instead of down, since you can hardly see his face.
  23. Bones 2 Water Weird

    For 2/5..my first attempt at painting blue, translucent water...it works for tabletop, I think, but not much beyond that.
  24. Hey everyone. Here is a recent completion. It's been on the shelf of shame for over a year. Its on a 2 inch large square base, and it's a heavy lump of pewter! I originally primed with Tamiya White Fine Surface Primer, thinking it would help. It seemed to come out VERY hydrophobic. Then I proceeded to paint the whole thing with Shadowed Stone. What a nightmare. The paint wanted to bead up with any degree of thinning. It took about 4-6 coats to cover. I went up to Pure White through the Stone Grey Triad using 50/50 increments. Each was about 3 layers per mix to get the blending. So, this ended up with something lie 30 layes of paint. At one point, despite thin layes, I thought the transitions were too rough, so I hit the whole thing with Stone Grey as a glaze, and picked out the weathered stone and pure white again. Only the top half of the model goes to Pure White, to try to draw attention to the head. In the end, I'm not sure the whole figure is white enough, but I'll let you guys weigh in on it. I wanted the base to look desert like, so this could fit as a Dust Devil. Also, I wanted something that looked like a tumbleweed and I think the moss painted with Tanned Leather and then highlighted with Dirty Bone worked well. Finally, I wanted the eyes/nose/mouth to have an OSL effect like the sun's rays peeking through the clouds. At first, it didn't look right. It was pure white as a base and sun yellow into that. It lost the OSL look with the whole face bleached out. So, I added in a rim of Stone Grey to those orifices just below the edge, and it made it recognizable again. The base is just sand and some small pebbles. That goes from Brown Liner to Muddy Brown, Earth Brown, With some spots of Chestnut Gold, Tanned Leather and Dirty Bone in various spots. I'm glad to be done with this. All those layers of grey got pretty BORING to paint! C&C appreciated. Thanks. -Darc
  25. While the Kickstarter was winding down I figured I needed to get to work on some Bones minis. Here are a pair I consider tabletop quality, not competition but hopefully not too shabby. Playing with the wet and dry looks for finishing here as well. So many Bones to paint before August 2016!
