  1. Here's a few pics of my Bones Great Worm, completed during my July paint binge. Here's some pics of rats. I especially like the cow patterned one. WIP is here:
  2. Reaper released a few minis in Bones before taking them to kickstarter the first time. Here is one of them: And what a beauty it is! That head would take pride of place in the monster hunter's wall of stuffed trophies! I really don't know why I have not painted one this earlier. It is a great piece, really three dimensional and wiggly as it were. And this would be maybe a fifth of it's total length. Too bad about the prominent mould lines and my early days inept removal of same with a knife. The resultant cut flats are especially noticable down the back. 77006 Great Worm Reaper Bones, pre-kickstarter sculpted by Michael Brower Bonesium PVC 50mm base
  3. For a long while during the process I had a pretty intense love/hate relationship with this worm. Some parts were a lot of fun, some others I just couldn't seem to get it to work how I had it pictured in my head. Had to leave well enough alone with the belly, especially (I feel like the end result is too heavily shaded, but I couldn't seem to get a decent contrast... oh well). I really like how the stones around the base came out, shout out to robinh for the help with those. Thanks also to Xherman1964 for some help blending the highlights on top. Honest C&C very much appreciated! I have no delusions of grandeur with this piece, just a decent addition to the table. But any critiques to help me learn for the future are most welcome! Also, tried out natural light by the window for the photos, with a folded piece of sketch pad paper as the background. Don't love it, and a lot of the colors and details don't translate exceptionally well, but alas, it will have to do until I can afford some ottlites. Without further ado... edit: better photos. Thanks Chris Palmer!
  4. Hey all, Here's the very preliminary stages of my next project, Bones Great Worm, which I'll be painting pretty close to WOTC's Purple Worm from the DND 5E Monster Manual. Backside purple, front a sort of bone or dark ivory that leans toward yellow. The sculpt doesn't have the bony plate sort of look the MM has for worms, but I still like the color scheme. The "seams" that connect the belly to the dorsal side will probably be a varying gray, similar to the stones he's bursting up out of. (Colored marker selection is, like my paint selection, very limited) Some fun notes about this project: First time using my new wet palette, WNS7 brushes, and a new drybrush. I may end up experimenting with some homemade washes if I'm feeling squirrelly. Will probably use this guy as my maiden voyage into custom basing, though that will probably be a couple weeks away. Very excited to paint this sculpt, since it's a very dynamic pose with lots of topography, this will demand great highlights and shadows, an area I need serious practice in. Either I'll rise to the challenge and produce something I'll be proud to terrorize my players with, or when I bring it out they'll assume it's a CR1/4 monster ;) Stay tuned to find out! Rob
  5. So I am embarrassed to say that my daughter has painted more minis than I have but the work she does has been pretty awesome and I hope she continues to enjoy this hobby. She turned 5 at the end of last month. Showing in the order she completed them. Vanja, Fire Giant Queen - This one I got for her around July when we took a trip to Reaper and I had her pick a mini out. She finally got to paint it around November. I helped only with the skin. She was tired of painting by the time she got to only the skin and so I slapped the color she wanted on there. Fire Dragon - This mini was bought during the Reaper Artist Con I think. She painted it the weekend of her birthday. I talked her into letting me show her what a quick wash of black would do to it. Great Worm - This is one of the minis she got from my mom for her birthday. It was the easier of the two for us to set up so she could paint right away. She picked the colors and just went crazy with it. I even let her use my detail Reaper brush for the teeth. She has already been picking out things in my Bones II stash she wants to paint but we may tackle her other birthday gift from my mom first, Nethyrmaul the Undying. One day I will find the Pathfinder Red Dragon in stock and she can paint it. Edit: Forgot to add tags
  6. My first mini in a very long time was this: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/47135-slime-worm-winter-exchange-mini-wip/ Now, I'm going to see what I can do with 2 years of painting under my belt. Starting to base coat
  7. Figures: Nonalla Ellinad / Great Worm Manufacturer: Reaper for both SKU #'s: 03667 / 77006 Materials: Pewter / Bones Plastic Sculptors: Bob Ridolfi / Michael Brower Show Off Thread: Located Here. Here are the WIP pics of the Sorceress and the Worm that I did for my Summer 2014 Figure Exchange Partner - Last Knight This is going to be super picture heavy as I just upload all the pics I have in 2 posts to break it up a little bit. Continued..... Edited to add 4 new pictures at the front of the WIP! Found these earlier and forgot to post them up.
  8. My three year son wanted to help me paint my bones. So I gave him the great worm and some blue paint. I figured if it turns out bad I'd just strip it. Well after looking at it, it reminded me of some random blue/orange creature but I don't recall where. So some oranges, yellows, and a red wash later, oh and for giggles alien goo green for the mouth, here it is. It's not really visible in the photos but I spotted some dirt brown around the base and along the side ridges to try and replicate coming out of the ground.
  9. Here's my version of the Bones Great Worm. I've seen a lot of varied paint jobs on this guy (lava, slime, frost, etc), but I decided to go with traditional colors so that I have one for gaming purposes. This is my ninth painted mini, and incidentially the first one where my wife has expressed some scepticism towards my newfound hobby. "Honey, I think I'm going to stay up tonight and slap some paint on my purple worm" has elicited odd looks from her. I have no idea what's up with that. Anyway, I'd love some C&C!
  10. Here are a few of my first Bones. I'm waiting for my Vampire, but thought I'd join the throng and paint some Great Worms and a Cave troll.
  11. So I got sidetracked from LPK2 a bit by RL... and a Great Worm. Painted up for tabletop use, I think it turned out pretty well. I keep surprising myself with how not sucky I can be if I take time to actually do it properly. I'm going to list what I used for paints mostly for my own reference than anything else. Body: Based with HD Gem Purple, washed with a mix of HD Twilight Purple and Black Wash. Belly: Base HD Gem Purple, layered up through Clear Magenta, up to HD Entrail Pink Pustule/Bumps: Based with Clear Red, then layered up to HD Fireball Orange, and then spotted with a bit of HD Golden Yellow. Rocks: Based with HD Dirty Grey, washed with a mix of Brown Liner and Black Wash (I really like this mix), Then dry-brushed up HD Dirty Grey, HD Concrete Grey, and finally a mix of HD Concrete Grey, and Sample Tan (a good of a name as any). Mouth: Linen White, washed with the same wash from body, then I decided I didn't like it and did a heavy glaze of Oiled Leather. Teeth: Based HD Tusk Ivory, then highlighted with Linen White. C&C welcome; Thanks :)
  12. So I was looking at the Great White Worm (aaaand! it just struck me - Thar she blows! -now I have to do a Moby Dick diorama with one of these as well!) and the similarity to the Shai Huluds are quite striking. Se here goes a quick conversion: I expect to do a sand-dune base or something. Probably should have been a lot smaller man on top, but its what I had at the moment. the fremen is a GW epic 40.000 space marine scout-model. I cut off the base and trimmed the gun, also bent the arm a bit. the wire is actually a bit of stretched sprue.
  13. I'm calling it done...
  14. Finally finished the Bones Purple Worm. The base I made from rocks, sculpey and green stuff. I altered the position of the worm a bit to make it sit more upright. The bronze effect is walnut brown, carnage red and vallejo ocher brown. The weathering/tarnish is vallejo blue green.
