  1. I have some clear plastic Christmas ornaments that I am going to make little scenes and put the Mystic Warrior children from Hasslefree in for my grandkids for Christmas. So I went from painting big ol' Marthrangul to little bitty kids. (I had a dwarf mage painted in between.) So today was my paint day with a friend. I snipped them off their bars and used my friend's jeweler's drill to drill tiny little holes in their feet for pins. Their feet and legs are so tiny, my usual pinning equipment was too large. I cleaned up all their flash and mold lines, washed them, and then primed. I did their skin and faces. My grandbabies have darker complexions and I want their little Jedis to resemble them so I went with a darker skintone. I used critique from my last mini (dwarf mage) to put more contrast in the skin. I did a base, shade, and highlight and then did half steps in between for smoother blend transitions. These are the tiniest eyes I have ever painted. They are not perfect but they aren't bad and I am leaving them alone because I was happy to not blob paint all over their faces! I plan on doing the "Leia" figure in white robes. Not sure how I plan on doing the shading yet - blue, cream, grey, a little mix of surrounding environment colors. We'll see. She will have a blue "lightsaber". The other two are for the twins so I plan on brown padawan robes for them. He will have a purple "lightsaber" and hers will be green. Their hair was basecoated in P3 Umbral Umber and shaded with a mix of Umbral Umber and Reaper's Nightshade Purple. I have not begun to highlight the hair yet. I need to try out a few browns and find one that does not too closely match their skin color. Here's some photos I took tonight. C&C welcome.
  2. Alright, ReaperCon is just around the corner and I really need to get cracking on my entires. I already have a thread up for my planned Painter's entries and I will be doing separate ones for my Open and Diorama entries. So first off here is my Open entry, the Bones version of Anirion: Oh, wait that's not right ... Much better This conversion came to be due to one of the critiques I received last year and that was to up the difficulty of my conversions. So first thing I did was scan Reaper's site and pick out minis that would be a good base for conversions. I got a pretty good list but I really got stuck on Anirion and turning him into a Jedi. This is the result. Here is the conversion break down: -Reshaped hood and sleeves -Smoothed out cloak to remove border -Removed staff and bag? -Repositioned arms -Added light saber out of styrene and metal piece Now on to paint and basing. Here are some side by side comparisons.
  3. Here is another upload of what I have been working on for the last 18 months: Imperial Assault Core Game. Here is Diala Passil, the Padawan Light Saber wielder of the core 6 heroes in the game. My color scheme follows the character art and Sorastro guide, but with Reaper and Vallejo Game Color paints. The camera makes the cloak look a lot more bright red than it really is. It ended up a sort of brick red in-hand. Overall, the saber blade was my least favorite part of this mini. Colors are under spoiler
  4. Somewhere around here, I saw an article... rather good one... where someone took a Reaper monk figure and made a pretty good looking Jedi figure out of it. I've found myself thinking about Star Wars figures as of late, and I have found myself wondering: What figures does Reaper make, Bones or otherwise, that would manage a reasonable or easy conversion into Star Wars characters, or even generic space opera folks? Ideas? Suggestions? Pictures?
  5. Painted for a friends 13 year old daughter she picked the colors, had a hard time getting a decent pic with this one. Light box no light box nothing worked well
  6. Show off related to this piece: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63001-02782-warl-hellbore-assassin-exchange-mini-for-2015-summer/ WIP related to this piece: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63010-02782-warl-hellbore-assassin-wip-for-summer-2015-exchange/ From the Personal Holocron of Master Bel’Rheol, Force Assassin Transcripts of His Address to the Grey Brotherhood on Ziost …to do so, you must release yourself from the hold the galaxy has on you: My parents should have known I would be their undoing. The archivists told me that an albino Twi’Lek born to two red Lethan Twi’Leks was a one-in-a-million birth. Everyone was right to see it as a bad omen. My parents should have disposed of me as a babe. I severed my ties to this galaxy by severing their heads. You will be called upon to do this too, initiates. You must cut ties with your prior lives, and you must cut deeply. You will learn quickly, initiates, that you are entering into a legacy at the very core of the persistence of the universe. We are not Sith. We are not Jedi. We are the force-wielding agents of the balance. Law? Chaos? Good? Evil? These are all the abstractions of the inhabitants of the universe: Men and women with goals and agendas. The balance cares nothing for their goals. So, although we are often called on to assassinate Jedi, we have also assassinated Sith for as long as our brotherhood has survived. We are truly neutral, intent on making sure the scales of power never shift too far in one direction, and in doing so, we make sure the galaxy will endure. We have pursued this goal since our betrayal on Malachor V all those years ago. I remember it vaguely, because a piece of my will was there. You will learn these secrets, young ones. At the height of your power, you can absorb some of the life essence and will of those you defeat. In doing so, your knowledge grows by countless bounds. We have also mastered the techniques of force-siphoning: You will have no fear in battle, as the stronger your enemy is, the stronger you become by drawing out and draining their power to bolster yourselves. Jedi may be content with turning into a blue ghost upon their death, but we endure. Slain Sith haunt isolated caves. With training, you can impose your mind and will into your destroyer. If you overpower them, your mind lives on in their body. Masters have done this for centuries and millennia, living on undetected and with borrowed memories from the poor souls they possessed. Don’t become overconfident. Know your place: Five Grey Brotherhoods on ancient Sith worlds, each with a Master, two apprentices, four adepts, eight novices, and sixteen initiates. We have been hidden here on Ziost for millennia. Sith and Jedi have scoured this planet for trinkets and baubles, but we remain hidden. This concealment is your greatest defense. With patience, you can hide yourselves in many ways: For the gullible, we borrow the “mind trick†of the Jedi to fool someone into seeing us differently. I might appear not as an albino Twi’lek, but as a wookiee. This little trick won’t fool more force-savvy opponents. To do so requires first masking your ability with the force: Force Concealment. Clever Sith have done this throughout time to hide in plain sight. You will also be taught to use the force camouflage and force invisibility to disappear completely; not with some hocus pocus potion like those witches on Dathomir or a primitive stealth-field-generator. No, your mastery of the force will allow you to walk next to someone unseen, unheard, unfelt, and unheeded. The force will also be your guide. Many of you are gawking at my grey eyes. When you reach out with the force over and over, you eventually see and hear the galaxy so clearly that you don’t need to use your eyes. With time, your eyes will cloud over: Jedi eyes turn white, Sith eyes turn black, and ours turn grey. Because of our mastery of stealth, we don’t use full length lightsabers. We use shoto. These versatile weapons allow us to capitalize on our dexterity rather than brute strength. They can be adjusted in length from fifteen to sixty centimeters. When shorter, they make excellent thrown weapons. When wielded in pairs, our Jar’Kai style of Ataru (Form IV) is nearly unstoppable. The quick leaping strikes, augmented by the force, are difficult to anticipate. One shoto can be thrown while the other defends. One can be deactivated and reactivated while the other traps your foes lightsaber in the vicious Pass the Blade attack. Using the Shoto-Swarm, you can quickly unbalance and confuse your enemy. Trispzest allows you to force back many foes while leaping to safety. All of this is fine, but the best strategy is to sneak up behind your target, and only activate your shoto once the emitters are within an inch of their neck. That way, their reaction to the sound of activation will be too late. The blades are already driven into their skull-base. Once again, welcome initiates. Study hard. Practice often. Respect your superiors. And above all, maintain vigilant secrecy. Only with anonymity may we continue to do the will of the universe to maintain balance.
  7. OK everyone. Not sure how best to post WIP after the fact. So, I'm going to post a few pictures at a time. I was paired to paint for Arc724 in the Summer 2015 Exchange. This was my first time, and his. Here's the link to the Show Off. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63001-02782-warl-hellbore-assassin-exchange-mini-for-2015-summer/ And here is the Fiction: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63011-from-the-personal-holocron-of-master-bel’rheol-force-assassin/ Here are the starting supplies: A few angles of the mini. The base is a 30mm Tau-Ceti base from Secret Weapon. The Shoto (Short Sabers) are sewing needles I picked up at Hobby Lobby.
  8. Dueling Jedi

    This is a diorama I created. Last year, I got to talk to Jeff Grace (he's responsible for a lot of great minis from Dark Sword, Privateer Press, Reaper and others). We talked a little bit about how easy it would be to make some of his Dark Sword minis into Star Wars characters, and how cool it would be if someone made a diorama of a dueling Jedi and Sith and entered it into the painting competition. Naturally, I agreed that such a thing should happen. I'm not totally sure that he meant it as a challenge. I think sometimes people get surprised when I run away with an idea like this. But here is the result. It received an honorable mention in the Masterclass competition. I have posted this to Coolmini for anyone who cares to vote.
