  1. 80001: Ape-X

    Ape-x re-imagined as a steampunk yeti scientist with a malfunctioning Gatling-cryolater.
  2. Hello again, friends and monsters (who may also be friends) - we're back with another Fast N' Fancy Reaper miniature. Those of you who may have missed our previous examples and want to check them out can find them through these links: 03100 Thanis the Bonecaller 01614 Con Crud 2017 Convention Zombie But today, we will be doing Dark Heaven Legends 02818 Bugbears by Jason Wiebe. Well, one of them anyway. Since both bugbears are overall similar, we will be doing only one. For multipack figures that are broadly the same (such as skeletons, etc.) we'll only be picking one. Where we might do a multipack with strongly dissimilar figures, then we will do both or all of the figures. So we'll be painting this guy: Also, for those of you who don't know this yet, your Reaper figures now come with a birthday! On blister packs since sometime in 2016, next to the barcode as illustrated by the arrow you will find a production date (or at least a packing date). In this case, my Bugbear was born July 28, 2017. This is very important information for his adoption papers! Should I get him a cake? I should get him a cake. And now for a few words from my painter-partner-in-crime:
  3. 02737, Dung Monster

    Here's another aberration I completed last weekend. This is an update from the Dung Monster I posted in June 2017. Reaper Miniatures 02737, Dung Monster was sculpted by Jason Wiebe. It can also be found in the 10031, Dungeon Horrors Box Set. I added four tentacles around its maw. The tentacles are from Reaper Miniatures 03334, Creature Components. I recently added the drools and completed the base.
  4. Fingerpainted Owlbear 77156

    Painting this was awfully fun.
  5. 03277: Hyena Pack (2)

    These are the two hyenas from Jason Wiebe's 03277: Hyena Pack (2). I painted them up as spotted hyenas, as that is what they most look like. I find I am enjoying painting realistic mammals because it gives a lot of opportunity for play with a fairly limited palette. (See, for example, how I recently painted wolves and wolves and wolves, and what I learned from doing it.) There is no WIP thread. I have a photo book of Zimbabwe, so I played a little bit with backgrounds.
  6. These are Wererats, not Skaven at all: Being Bones, they are slightly soft in the details, especially the smaller ones. They are made of the slightly more rigid Bones material that most of the second kickstarter Bones were done in, and as such the thinner bits like blades and tails are still flexible, but not rubbery or so bendy as to droop under their own weight as has been known to happen to some Bones in extreme poses or with only the legs supporting heavy bodies, similar to the poses of these minis. However, these are all rigid enough not to have any such problems. So that is a win in my book. 77292: Giant Wererat: Erring on the side of caution with the backside picture, due to the ...huevos on display https://maledrakh.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/170927-reaper-bones-77292-giant-wererat-d.jpg The Rat Ogre (still can’t bring myself to call it a “Rat Ogor”) certainly has got a pair. 40mm base 77293: Wererat Berserker 30mm base 77294: Wererat Stalker 30mm base 77295: Wererat Assassin 30mm base These are all sculpted by Jason Wiebe according to the reaper store.
  7. Early last year, I pledged on Kickstarter for the Circle of Chaos Warband by Curtis Fell of Ramshackle Games fame, but I did not add on for the Rhinotaur at that time. ...So when I received the original 7 minis of the Circle, I kicked myself for not adding it on. The minis were weird-in-a-good-way designs by several sculptors, and great quality casts, and were all painted late last year. When the shiny syndrome at last overpowered me, I contacted Mr Fell, and he graciously ordred a Rhinotaur cast up and sent to me. After prepping, I added one of my 3D printed oval bases, and it has been standing around on my desk ever since, trying to get my attention. Which it in the end, did. "Very few mutations survive conception. Fewer still survive birth. Some are so twisted and hideous, the host's birthing screams must be silenced to maintain a shred of sanity. This begins the tale of one such horror, unleashed upon a blighted world. A beast of war and ruin so terrible a strong man's guts turn to water at the sight of it. A pair of ancient cleaving swords it yields, whirling and feinting despite its armored bulk. It's mighty horns used to batter and break and pierce, are sharp enough to penetrate a dragon's hide. But despite all of this, despite the horrible carnage, the hacking, the trampling, the impaling, the worst of it is its battle cry. Pig snorting and squealing in battle, reaching its fervor. And suddenly, blood covered and splattered with gore, it opens its jagged mouth and emits the piercing yet pure and joyful squeals of a baby." -from the KS update introducing the Rhinotaur addon. The completed warband in all it's glory. Curtis Fell / Ramshackle Games is officially on my "Kickstarter good performers" list Good communication, great product, timely fulfilment. A+ would back again. The Rhinotaur aka Grey Death Circle of Chaos Oldhammer Warband KS by Cutris Fell Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Metal. Heavy Metal 75x45mm 3D printed oval lipped base.
  8. Reaper Halfling Farmers 03729

    Halfling Farmers 03729 by Jason Wiebe
  9. 02737, Dung Monster

    Here is my 02737, Dung Monster. It was sculpted by Jason Wiebe and can also be found in the 10031, Dungeon Horrors Box Set. Since it's the second time I paint this model, I added four tentacles around its maw to make it look different. The tentacles are from 03334, Creature Components. Here is the LINK to the other one I painted in 2009.
  10. This is Jason Wiebe's sabertooth tiger, Reaper 02480. I painted it up with a lynx's coloration. WIP thread here. As a note, this is another form of the feline therianthrope also depicted here. So this is another PC for that idiosyncratic game of World of Darkness-Exalted I'm involved in. And that skull under the critter is small. (with 59037 Deadlands Noir Femme Fatale by Bob Ridolfi for scale)
  11. The "Wood Elemental" Spirit of the Forest. And quite a large one at that. Don't think you are going to do much damage with a sword and some arrows. I did this in late summer colours so it could go for the "spirit of summer" bonus thingy in the reaper forum resolutionary painting challenge. Makes me think of the many summer woodland walks and August camping trips with the boy scouts. Summer lasting all of three weeks here in Norway before the Autumn rains set in. Because Winter is Coming. 77184: Spirit of the Forest Reaper Bones from the first Bones KS sculpted by Jason Wiebe Bonesium PVC 60mm base
  12. This is Reaper's 02480, Sabertooth Tiger, sculpted by Jason Wiebe. It's a nice muscular rendition of the Ice Age critter. This is my standard priming, with a thin coat of Titanium White paint (Golden matte fluid acrylic) and a wash of Burnt Umber afterwards. It reminds me of a lynx in general aspect, so I plan to paint it with more or less a lynx's coloration. The first thing I did was paint a sickly green, mixed from Yellow Ochre and Carbon Blck, over the base. I like to paint thinly enough so underlayers show through, to make things look more realistic. This works well for fur too. ... I couldn't help but notice that that skull underneath the creature is mighty small. Like, child sized. Next: Fur!
  13. Legion of Justice and Caeke Shoatima 01429, Frumitty 01428, Platypod 01427, Echidnox 01424, The Baddies Spikeshell 77270, Frogmen 03146 All the figures were sculpted by the wonderful Jason Wiebe. Except teh Caeke, that was sculpted by me. Yes it's huge, we'll call it hooman sized. :-) Please forgive the edges of the background. I will retake pics once my photo backdrop gets here but these will do for now. The WIP can be found here http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62120-tiniest-paints-caeke/
  14. 77113 - Eldritch Demon

    I've seen this mini painted many times, often in a green or purplish color scheme. I decided to go with something that I felt was a little more underwater like. His skin is very muddy, and I tried to stay away from the typical greens. I did, however, end going with some green on him, and I feel like he came out really well. This was also my first time using Reaper Brown Liner. I am addicted! There is a full WIP on my CoolAliasHere Miniatures facebook page. As always, C&C is welcome. PS - still not sure what I am going to do with the base, so for now it's must painted as a bit of burned stone. CAH
  15. So on facebook in December, a few of us took to doing a daily art challenge for the entire month inspired by Morihalda and her awesomely inspiring dedication to pursuing her art <3 I think Bathory started it and CashWiley started calling it the Morihalda Challenge (if I'm remembering correctly) and my dedication to it was to paint every day for at least 10 minutes. I was able to keep it going for the entire month and once we got into the new year, I decided to keep it going. I don't typically believe in making New Years resolutions, but dedicating myself to painting and/or mini related hobbying for at least 10 minutes every day seemed not only doable but like something that I really wanted to do. I'm passionate about painting and improving my painting and you can't improve without practice and discipline. I have thus painted every day since December 1st and I hope to keep painting every day for as long as possible. The Resolutionary Painting Challenge http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72577-resolutionary-painting-challenge-2017-chatterquestions/was something that I often saw people posting in and about on the forum, but I never thought that I could join in because I wasn't painting as much before and I paint pretty slowly. However, for this year, NomadZeke made the challenges bi-monthly, which I think reduces some pressure on meeting the quota and now that I'm painting more, even though I still paint slowly, I'm more likely to be able to finish a lot more and it gives me something extra to work toward. On top of that, I've always seen the bonus challenges from the RPChallenge and thought that they sounded like a lot of fun and as much as I'm dedicated to practice and discipline, I never ever want to forget that I paint because it's fun. Sometimes I put too much pressure on myself to paint something well and I get all stressed out about it and I just need to let it go and have fun. So finger painting a mini? Yes, please. I knew exactly which figure I wanted to paint for it because I thought that all of the deep recesses would help me to get good contrast. I discovered very quickly that although that was true, it also made it very tricky to get paint into the deep recesses in the first place! So as I always do with Bones figures, I started out with Brown Liner. I had to thin it enough to get it to flow into all of the deep recesses. I should have thinned it more though because what I ended up with was WAY too much paint on the figure - so much that it took a couple of hours for it to dry completely. Once it dried, however, I made sure that I did a better job of controlling my paint consistency so that it would run where I wanted it to, but not all over the place. I did some unintentional wetblending, which turned into intentional wetblending. So much drying time! I think he turned out pretty great, what do y'all think?
  16. I am declaring victory! This is my Khanjira. There are many like it, but this one is mine. It is my doom. I must master it as I must master my death. Without me my Khanjira is mildly peckish. ... wait, that's something else. Started on Boxing Day, and didn't get a bunch of time to work on it a few of the days, but I managed to grind it out. There's definitely room for improvement, but my goal was to get it to the point where I can put it on the table during a game and be happy about it, and I've achieved that. I do still want to put it on a more rigid base (I'll probably do up a fancy piece of MDF at some point) but that's not required for the goblin challenge and I needed to get this thing off my elfing desk so I can work on something else. Dunno what else to say... Any questions?
  17. I decided today to complete the trio of mushroom men. I wasn't sure, at first, what colors to go with on the caps. So, I looked up some other poisonous mushrooms, and BAM inspiration! These were done using a new technique for me.. glazing with ultra thinned paints. I'm still getting the hang of it, but I will say the hardest part is waiting for the layers to dry. Hope you like them! As always, C&C is welcome! CAH
  18. So, tonight I joined my buddy Kevin online in Google Hangouts to paint and chat. This was the piece I completed while we were chatting about... well just about everything. Hope you like it! The colors were inspired by a specific species of the Deathcap Mushroom. He has dubbed this one the "Rainbow Sorbet Deathcap Mushroom". From start to finish, this was just about 2 1/2 hours to complete. I am really happy with the way he came out. As always, C&C is welcomed! CAH
  19. Ogre Mage Master Phthalo I picked up this guy a while ago. He's an actual lead miniature from the Reaper P-65 Heavy Metal line that was later discontinued. The Bones material is much cheaper and far easier cut and convert. Not long after I got him I based him on a cavalry length base to fit his stance and primed him with tan and did some basecoating using craft paints I had. I recently decided to pick him back up and put some effort into him. You can check out the WIP to see everything I did to get him here. Final Pics: Enjoy. I hope you enjoy him. Check him out in the Inspiration Gallery. (approved) Added to Thrym's Index of Reaper Miniatures & Thrym's General Show Off List
  20. It's the surfing samurai ogre mage ... er ... just my P-65 Heavy Metal Ogre Mage. Yeah, the background was boring so I added a border. As you can see here, he's just basecoated and attached to a piece of slate which has been covered with ballast. I basecoated this guy a long time ago and shelved him because ... well, I wasn't ready to completely get into finishing him. I decided last night to pull him from the shelf of shame and resume work on him. I hooked him up to my holder ... then had to counter his weight with rocks, sand AND water ... he's a heavy bugger. I used craft paints at the time to basecoat him. I am okay with the basecoating and enjoy the palette I started. So, colors ... The green hakama pants and robe are Celery. His skin is Phthalo Blue. The Pack Cover is Lavendar. The Fur Jacket is Antique Gold. And the orange-like highlights are Deep Sea Coral(?) ... I think. Been a while. The ground is Sunflower Yellow. The gist of the color scheme was desaturated tones to start with. We'll see where this leads.
  21. 77226 Charnel Grub - Dungeon Paint.

    My PCs are venturing into the sewers of a rather large city. There have been sightings from and disappearnces of the workers who maintain the sewers, and the PCs have been hired to investigate. I have a couple more pieces that will go into this, including the slimes and possibly the gelatinous cube (once my order is complete). This nasty little bugger was painted specifically to be the first encounter... tonight! I used a couple of different varnish coats to try to get a sticky wet look. Overall, I am quite pleased with how he came out, and my wife thinks he looks gross. Mission accomplished! The base is a hirst arts cast from one of the molds I have here at the house. It is a quick drying resin that buy here at a local hobby store. It takes paint and primer very well, and does a great job capturing the details. I give you... the Charnel Gub, tentacled nightmare and eating machine! CAH
  22. 77372 Burrowing Horror

    My tabletop version of the Bones Burrowing Horror done to table top. http://www.coolminiornot.com/400782 C&C appreciated.
  23. Below are three Wererats and a rat swarm I painted up for a session I am running this weekend. These little guys are tormenting a shop owner in a local dock district. (I still need to paint up the Barrow Rats as dire rats) All in, I think I have about 4-5 hours in the whole set. These are going to be used on the table, and I just wanted something to adequately represent the trouble the PCs will be facing. I'm happy with how they came out. The only real flare I put in them was on the assassin. His dagger is coated in a paralytic toxin, so I added some green and yellow wash to give it that sickly poisoned look. As always, C&C welcomed! Group Photo Wererat Stalker Wererat Berseker Wererat Assassin Thanks for looking! CAH
  24. 77267: Kallaguk, Troll King

    Another Zen of Bones mini for me. I only removed the most annoying flash/mold lines. Zenithal primed and intended as another toy box level mini for my 3 year old. Tried some new techniques and was happy with the out come, so this will be going in my cabinet until my son is older. First try at thick water effects on the base, dripping blood, and dripping drool. I was happy with the dark eyes and the yellow skin...although I did panic a little when I realized he was wearing Green Bay Packers colors... C&C welcome. --Mike http://www.coolminiornot.com/394925
  25. 80001: Ape-X

    Attempting to adopt Buglips' Zen of Bones approach. I only removed the most offensive mold lines. I intended this to be for the KruleBear cub's 3rd Birthday. I was essentially done by the date, but procrastinated the final details for a couple months. This was the first mini I used aggressive Zenithal priming on and it saved me a lot of time. I call this a Toy Box level paint job or tabletop. http://www.coolminiornot.com/394924
