  1. Golem Hired Muscle - Finished

    I finally finished it!
  2. Hello all! I'm really trying to learn about sculpting for miniatures and here's my current project: It's a Golem from artist Chris Walton It's just at the Armature phase right now but i've started to block in my major shape masses. I'll post that when i get a bit further. Any help/suggestions/direction on how to make this more viable for print at around 30mm would be most appreciated! All the best, Andrew Cothill
  3. Hey all, DMAgamus here. It was the extra spoopy time of year again, and I always put on a special game to celebrate. WHat better thing to pain, then, than pieces from the graveyard expansion of bones 3. I present to you, the crypt at the edge of the wilds! The Halloweenies! ANd their minion, Pete the Grave Golem! Also, I've added on pics of the full board, for fun. It was a great time had by all. Album link:Halloween Painting and Set Up
  4. YAY! Clearance items begotten from Game Kastle and I managed to find not one but TWO of the minis from my wishlist in their clearance!! WOOOHOOO! HERALD OF BLOOD This golem or construct of the gnomes from deep within the world is brilliantly painted by Martin Jones in the Reaper Catalog: Painted by Martin Jones And while I didn't want his work to influence mine I will be doing at least two things the same: A. Glowing Runes and Eyes B. Not Stone Spikes I assembled this gentleman first with the idea of "full menacing pose" so both arms are over his head. And amusingly, without referencing the above image, I swapped his arms. So to start off, here he is Primed, Basecoated in Vallejo Game Color Yellow Olive and the Runes are in Vallejo Panzer Aces Stencil. GOAL!!!! On the base, is a piece of slate and green stuff to simulate cavern floor. Two fallen or unused mine supports are behind him. What's next ... well, I think the final colors are going to be Purple / Black Granite with a Green under-color. The Runes will be a glowing Reaper Rach Red . The Spikes will be converted into Crystals. Which might entail some blunting of the ends to get a more crystalline appearance. These crystals will ultimately be Red/Purple or Purple/Green to fit the theme so far. ENJOY and Stay Tuned!
  5. Sophie summons the Book Golem

    So, the other day, I had one of those ideas that spring into my head full formed. I had been discussing a golem made out of books on a Facebook DM page, and saw someone ask for a Book Golem in the KS comment (i think it was David Brawley but I'm not wading through the comments to make sure). So with this on my mind I suddenly knew what it would look like. And I wanted to have someone summoning one. And who better than our bibliophile Sophie? The idea is to have her in the foreground perfoming the summoning. Behind her will be a bookcase (or two depending on how I need to valence thing out) with a stream of books flying off the shelves taking shape into the golem. I may add some scrolls and such as well if needed. I started making the books tonight. I'll be trying out several methods as I will need multiple varieties. Here are 12 books using wood and card board And here is our heroine along with a picture of the materials used so far. Craft stick and cardboard from a blister pack. Reduce, reuse recycle!
  6. Bones 3 Iron Golem

    Some pics of my recently completed iron golem.
  7. My inaugural Bones 3 paint, the Iron Golem (menacing Sir Forscale that I got from either a paint-and-take at PAX or a learn-to-paint kit, can't remember which). I'm not sure it really comes out in the picture, but I started with black/gray zenithal priming layers, airbrushed a not-too-thick layer of a bright metallic over it, dark wash, and then heavily shaded it with pure black glazes (there's supposed to be some left/right shading with the glazes, but it doesn't show well in the pictures I don't think). Then touched all the gouges with the metallic again, and painted the optics and vents with red and orange, on the assumption that iron golems are powered by some kind of eldritch furnace internally. (Sir Forscale was splashed with whatever bright primary color was close at hand, like you do when you're a complete noob at a paint-and-take, and I hope I got the right SKU from the list that came with my shipment.)
  8. Hi all, after much lurking I've decided to post some of my minis I technically posted once before but I just realized looking at the old post that it was over a year ago! I'm really going to have to pick up my painting rate given that another bones pledge is about to be delivered! So I can definitely tell I like painting the bad guys better than the PC characters, probably due to spending too much time DMing. Anyway, here's some recent ones I painted. As always feedback is appreciated! First a couple beastmen from the Warlord line: How about a golem and some undead as tomb guardians? I diced up a skeleton into the base of the bone fiend too. You can kind of see the boot. I have painted some character figures as well recently. Here's a few Elves with an Halfling. I need to work on my faces more though. Humanoid faces are so much flatter than monsters'. Anyone have any tips for varying humanoid flesh or adding details to faces that that sculp might not define well? Thanks! Much appreciated!
  9. So, I've dug out a mini to paint up for the same Hobby Hangout contest that Ub3r is entering. Flying Frog Games' Shadows of Brimstone: Guardian of Targa. We all know how bad I suck at keeping up WIPs, but I'll try to post as I go. This is what it looks like: I'm kidding. It's the guy on the left, here: I've just finished cleaning and assembling mine, and as you can see, I had to do some filling on the base...which I tried to cover up with some bits, since I can't sculpt. It's on a Secret Weapon Trash base, 60mm, beveled. (Bleh for beveled edge bases, but it's all I had that fits the theme I'm going for.) As you can see in the tags, I'm going to be doing some heavy weathering and some OSL in this project. Stay tuned.
  10. Bone Golem (Conan Boardgame)

    I wasn't sure if those were guts and veins or branches and vines... so I just went with guts.
  11. Gauntfield, Necropolis Hero Yup, another WIP. Gauntfield has been in my kit for years. He has received most of the excess green stuff from everything I've ever built. I wanted the scarecrow to be standing behind a tree trunk, gnarled and dead for many years. So I started out by applying him to a base that filled the space up to his feet on the slot bottom he had and built the basis for his tree. As you can see, I used two skewer pieces as the center posts and set the "fork" of the tree I was looking for. Then I placed terrarium rocks around it to fill out the bottom of the trunk. Then over the years I scraped on any excess green stuff I had from projects. Tonight's effort was the eye of my Undead Dwarf. A very tiny amount of green stuff. Which is a little hard to mix and create at that size. It was smaller than a pin head. So the remainder went around one of the upright trunks from the tree of Gauntfield. Then after some thought on my efforts to create a bark exterior I decided the whole tree needed a skin and fill of some of the unnatural sections of green stuff. So I got out my green putty and went to town on the surface of the tree. I had primed the scarecrow and tree earlier so I just went right over that. You'll notice that the "skin" added is a bit rough. I'll go over it in a bit and clean it up once it's set a bit more. If I like the appearance of it, I will prime that and move on. If not, I will go over that a more until I am happy. Green putty is also a great product to smooth over a surface. So I made some of the sand around Gauntfield smooth with the putty while I was working the tree. Green putty dries really quick so within a few minutes I can sand the surface of it with my thumb or stiff brush. I have an old toothbrush for this. So, here's a second skim of "bark" with the Green Putty. I cut off the excess bamboo skewers and created a branch collar on each end where the trunks would get overgrown with the bark. Just below the saddle of the two trunks, I added a third trunk that has broken off and left a branch collar using the Green Putty. You can see that I "sanded" some of the skin and added more. Stay tuned.
  12. This was sculpted by Admiral over at Chaos Dwarfs online (he's ebaying copies in the event anyone is interested). This is on a 40mm base, and is the "fire" version. The other version is dismembering a goblin (not my thing, but both sets come with the Golem). This was a "speed" paint, taking only about 5 hours, including the glow effect. I could push it further, but I stopped when I thought it looked right to my eye. The base is 40mm using cork with a Happy Seppuku base over it into Procreate. The lava is liquitex matte medium layered until the base texture was less visible. The white dots on the staff and that show up on the arm are not there in real life, not sure what the camera was doing, but otherwise this is exact to real life.
  13. Continuing the effort to increase my options when rolling on the Frostgrave encounter charts, here is a Large Construct: Old Rusty the Iron Golem with his enchanted sword, Anvilbiter. 77168 Battleguard Golem Reaper Bones KS1 Bonesium PVC 40mm base
  14. Stonehaven Treant

    When I got my Stonehaven Halfling Adventurers Kickstarter miniatures, I wanted to paint the treant right away. It was an easy and fun miniature to paint, and I was happy how it turned out. I plan to make a special base for him but for now used the one that he came with.
  15. Reaper mini Stone Golem

    Hey there my second submission today is my take on the mighty Stone golem...Now it is unusual! I looked up the brightest most unusual stone I could find and found a red white and bone pebble! I emulated this on the golem I hope you like it! It was the red pebble although my version is a lot lighter!
  16. Worm Golem

  17. Papa Golem's Pizza

    Well, after a few minor touch-ups, heeeeeeere's Bob! Reaper MSP acrylics over Floquil Gray Model Railroad Primer. WIP thread is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68446-large-stitch-golem-project/ Questions and Comments are welcomed. Glen
  18. This is a mild conversion of Reaper's Large Stitch Golem. The main piece is resin with a separately cast white metal left arm with a long, pointed weapon. The piece is about 1.75 inches (43mm) tall and is rather portly. Sections of the piece are sculpted with a loosely woven material that reminds me of burlap, so that's what I'm going with. The rest of the piece is covered with a smooth material that could be cloth or tanned leather, maybe even bare skin. It's anybody's call, I suppose, but I'm going with tanned leather. In keeping with the 'stitch' theme, the 'eyes' are two different sized buttons sewn onto the face. There's also a row of buttons going up the spine. The buttons are various designs with different attachment options - two or four hole. One button has none, giving me the impression that it's attached by a shank at the back. That then is what I'm working with. The pics show the piece as provided. And a note about the pics - I'm shooting these on the fly as I complete each phase of the project. Formal portraits at the end, of course. Questions and Comments are welcomed. Stand by... Glen
  19. I was reading through a recent Dungeons on Demand adventure, and part of the climax involves a female flesh golem (think Bride of Frankenstein). Anyone know of a miniature I could use as a representation? Male flesh golems abound, but I haven't ever come across a female. Thank you for the assist.
  20. 77171 Stone Golem

    Quick Stone golem, this one was done as a body guard to a very vain and particular sorceress, hence the clothes and whatnot and not just solid stone look.
  21. 77170 Clay Golem

    Hi all, I tried some painting again last week and had the perfect model for it, big and bulky with plenty of area to practice some glazing and to see if I could keep my left arm still enough to get some detail in. The arm is still hurting, but I can at least paint again. I need to rest my arm after 30 or so minutes so it all takes a bit longer, but here is my first mini of 2016. The mini turned out a bit shiney in places and I was wondering why that is. Is it because of the glazing? The paints I used are all very flat when diluted with a little water. I didn't block in any color, it is all just glazes except for the basecoat. C&C is much appreciated since glazing is kind of a new technique for me. He will get a base eventually, but that is still to much effort with the arm
  22. This was another entry in my year-end Conga Line of minis to finish. My husband gave me this whiskey (barrel) golem because it was made of wood and useful for a steampunk game he's running. This is Malifaux' WYR20603. (Apparently there is a slightly fancier version called the "Nightmare Whiskey Golem" which also has little goblin figures squirming all over it and drinking its leakage in disturbing fashions. I am just fine with this version, thanks.) This is the first polystyrene plastic figure I've ever put together. It was interesting, if fiddly. Here he is next to Reaper's 50016: Rosie, Chronotechnician for scale. Original WIP (from a while ago) here.
  23. Hi all, first Show-Off post here! Been painting since the first Bones Kickstarter but wasn't satisfied with the results enough for sharing until recently but now I'm diving in. I had a lot of fun painting all the Bones golems together/in succession. It really gave me a chance to differentiate the appearances I wanted as they developed. I gave myself the liberty to experiment a bit and created more than one version of some. For the ice golem I wanted to preserve as much of the translucency as possible as he's already a nice glacial blue, so I kinda went to town on the basing instead. I like the stone golem but it always reminds me of Frankenstein's monster. The clay golem, aka, "Do you even uplift, bro?" - I know, geology jokes . . . I needed the second one to serve as a blood golem. I really like the flesh golem because he can also double as a larger zombie at the gaming table. Finally, the battleguard golem. Makes a great warforged character or iron golem. I wanted a tarnished look on this one because let's face it - iron makes for a really poor choice for golem materials in any fantasy setting with ice sorceress's (ice sorcerese?), weather altering druids, dank caverns, etc. Feel free to provide feedback too! In addition to learning the painting itself, I'm still understanding the nuances of photographing these little monsters I built a DIY light box and have a decent non-phone digital camera but it's still finicky. For example the flesh golem appears noticeably less vibrant red in person, while the brown clay golem is actually a bit more red-brown than this image. Despite having the same backdrop, as I know that subtly changes things. Anyway, enjoy!
  24. 77168: Battleguard Golem

    I broke out all my metallic paints tonight for a quick project. Planning on using him as a modified Helmed Horror in a D&D game this weekend.
