  1. Lets make a start to balance out my many, many, many non-Reaper WIP threads:- I thought I was being so clever putting her on a recessed base, so I could bury the little pile of rocks she's standing on. Unfortunately, I didn't realize until it was too late that her arm-cape actually goes down the side of the rock pile, going to have to re-think my basing ideas Wasn't intending to start painting her yet, but thought I'd do a bit while other stuff was drying:- Her skin has been basecoated with 1:1 Flat Flesh/Light Flesh and given a Fleshshade Wash. Now back to watching paint dry.
  2. For your consideration, I offer Nolevniss Azrinae: Reaper Miniature 60162. Or in this Multiverse: Elariel Moonshadow This elf Magi was an active sculpt to paint. The robes and cloak are dynamic in portrayal of wind movement and direction. The robes were long and laying folded in back, which suggests weight and volume. Limited palette with work on suggesting different textures of cloth. Teeny eyes. Delicate sculpt too with the hair and features. And the familiar was an enjoyable if not surreal sculpt. I was told by the person who wanted this painted, "And paint the baby dragon gold." When I popped my Opti-visor on I was like, "That's not a dragon..." This creature reminded me of the haemonculus familiar from earlier Dungeons and Dragons editions, while the head reminded me of an eye-less vampire bat. What you see is the result. Cute. (But you don't want to be left alone in the same room with it.) The staff is a weapon of Power - like Purple Name power. Spell book and scrolls along with bandolier pouches told me a story of a travelling Mage - even his staff clutched a simple stone at the foot to act as counterweight. But not a nice guy. I hope you enjoy him. :) Peace and blessings.
  3. Mudcroak, Squog Shaman (77269) (Bones)

    I painted up Mudcroak, Squog Shaman, this past week, to go with the unit of Squogs I completed last week. I used the same Strawberry Poison Dart Frog color scheme I used on the unit. I also experimented with giving him one sightless milky eye, to add to his mystical nature. (He can see more things with one eye, than most can with two! )
  4. Ral Partha Wizard with Staff

    So just finished this one up last night, wizard with staff from an old Ral Partha line. I actually like this figure quite a lot because he's an older guy, but has decided not to become a old, long-haired, long-bearded wizard in a big, billowing cloak, rather he's tried to keep himself a little more up with the times with some sensible clothing and a hair cut.
  5. For those of you who have been following along with my Frostgrave Campaign (See:Frostgrave Game Four); you'll know that in the last game my Illusionist Apprentice was killed. I like whenever possible to actually use new figures to replace those killed, or promoted; but as I pawed through my Bones stash I became aware that I had no female wizard figures suitably attired for exploring a frozen ruined city. Most of them wear very skimpy, drapey, outfits. So, when I came across the Highland Heroine figure in her nice warm-looking layered outfit, I thought that perhaps she would make a good wizard's apprentice. So, I then looked for a suitable sorceress who's staff I could borrow, and I found the Sarah, the Seeress, figure. I washed the two figures. Then, as I studied them, the immediate problem I found was that the Highland Heroine has very small delicate hands and I wasn't sure I would be able to drill them out to insert the staff. So I decided to leave Sarah's hand attached to the staff, and use that to replace the Heroine's right hand, and then cut the staff in two, and glue the lower section to the Heroine's other hand. I cut away the sword and the Heroine's right hand, and then ended up having to cut away a bit of the underside of the Heroine's left forearm to get the lower half of the staff to fit, and it still is almost as round as her clenched hand. I used Gorilla Superglue to glue all the parts together. I'm pleased with how the conversion turned out. I like that she looks like a tough-as-nails wizard who isn't afraid to use either end of her staff when the fighting gets close-quarters.
  6. Goblin Command (77349) (Bones)

    This week I finished up the Goblin Command pair from the Bones 2 Kickstarter, Expansion 1. Nothing fancy, just quick paint jobs to get them tabletop ready.
  7. Hey all! Just figured I'd post the current mini that I'm working on: Reaper's 60149: Winter Witch. I think I picked her up at last year's ReaperCon, and she's been sitting around waiting to be painted. I figured it'd be a good opportunity to get some practice in as well as experiment with ice bases for all of those Space Wolves I'm supposed to be painting. Anyways, enjoy! -K
  8. Liela, Dark Elf Wizard (Bones)(77121)

    For those that have followed along with my "All Bones About It" blog, where I'm chronicling my effort to paint all the Bones 1 Kickstarter figures I purchased, I was happy today to have reached the 200th figure out of the 266 that I am painting from Bones 1. It feels good to hit another milestone on this adventure! It seems all down hill from here, with only 66 figures left to go. With some real determination I think I can get it done by the end of the year. Currently I'm working on the Dark Elves set, and this past week I completed Liela, Dark Elf Wizard, from that set. I did a quick table-top paint job on her, and I'm generally pleased with it except I feel her face came out rather flat, and her expression rather dull. I don't think I was thinking in terms of the added difficulty of doing a pure black face when I did hers. I'll be more prepared next time. :) ​As always C & C welcome.
  9. So here is Balto Burrowell, in the primer. The reason I am starting here, is that this was one of the minis that I was going to paint for the Fall Exchange. The problem is that when I was stripping the last of the paint from him with my Dremel tool and a wire brush, I ground off his nose with the chuck of the tool! Needless to say I was upset, and had to order a new mini to paint. I kept him around to remind me to be a little smarter and more careful when using power tools on minis, and he has always been giving me the evil eye from my painting desk, sitting there un primed, with Frankenstein's hand me down boots, as I never finished removing the base from under his feet. So I was doing some putty work the other evening, and decided to give him some plastic surgery! I put a tiny dab of green stuff on his face, and tried to shape it so that it looked like the original. I tried an X Acto knife, my clay shapers, dental picks, and finally, a straight pin. How people sculpt these things on these little guys is beyond me! (Yes I did see Cornelius Dapperbear, I am surprised Talespinner can still see!) So here is Balto, let me know what you think of his nose! Painting to commence tonight, after the Liquid green stuff dries... George
  10. I recently completed painting the Elquin, High Elf Adventurer figure from the Bones I Kickstarter. I wanted to use him as my Chronomancer wizard for my Frostgrave games, as I felt his outfit was vaguely reminiscent of a French Napoleonic uniform, and would be fitting for a time-traveling wizard. Some of you may remember I recently posted my Sascha Dubois figure, which I had painted as the Chronomancer's Apprentice http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65273-sascha-dubois-chronomancers-apprentice-conversion-80004/?hl=%2Bsascha+%2Bdubois because of her vaguely 18th century looking outfit. I modified the figure, to help bring across the Chronomancer look, by adding a small disc punched from thin cardboard to the top of his staff to make it resemble a sundial. IMG_5674 by cnjpalmer I painted him for tabletop use, so took some shortcuts. I'm pleased with the results, though I wish I had taken the time to get his eyes focused where his hand is pointing, and not glancing off to the side. I was just so thrilled to get them relatively level and even, and both looking in he same direction, that I didn't want to mess with them further. Here's the finished result: IMG_5887 by cnjpalmer And here is the Chronomancer and his Apprentice: IMG_5900 by cnjpalmer
  11. This past weekend, I completed the Sascha Dubois figure that I have been posting about in the Work in Progress forum: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65049-sascha-dubois-chronomancers-apprentice-conversion/ For those who haven't read that thread, my goal was to convert this futurisitc Science Fiction figure into a fantasy magic-user type to serve as my Chronomancer's Apprentice for my Frostgrave games. While not the greatest paint job, it is one of the best I've done for a figure destined to be a game piece, and not one for display.

  12. Elquin, High Elf Adventurer (77092)

    So this past week I painted Elquin, High Elf Adventurer, from the Bones I Heroes Set. As I looked at this figure and considered how to paint him, there was something about his outfit that struck me as very Napoleonic in appearance. So, I got the idea to paint him in the style of a French soldier from that era. In general I'm pleased with how he came out, especially the face. And I think the Napoleonic look suits him well. For the full painting write-up, please see my Bones painting blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/08/elquin-high-elf-adventurer-figure-166.html
  13. 77210: Sarah the Seeress

    Ok finally got the Spring Exchange mini completed. It has no base because Buckyballs requested it be non-based as he will just clear base it anyway for gaming. I am terrible at painting ladies and this one had a lot of fiddly bits. I didn't do a great job but for a tabletop gaming piece I think it will do the trick. I just hope my partner likes it. Better pics taken with an actual camera! Original pics from the cell phone using the light box.
  14. Hjordisa Ymirsdottir, Red Box Games

    Hjordisa Ymirsdottir from Red Box Games. One more Tre Manor sculpt. I struggled to get a good photo as the figure is quite small. I'm really satisfied with the paintjob.
  15. 03381: Satheras, Elf Warlock

    Finished up the month with Bobby Jackson's Satheras, Elf Warlock. This is the metal version. I'll be using him as an NPC in the Pathfinder Game I'm running--Gerinnes Lefelen, an elven wizard who's the de facto ruler of a town and the PC's benefactor . . . for now. Mwah ha ha. I'd had this mini on my to-get list for quite some time, having wanted to paint it since the moment I saw it, but I must confess that once I started getting into it I found the robes a little silly, regarding what's part of what and what's not. I just kind of winged it, in the end, hehe, without being altogether sure how it should go. But it was still pretty fun. Thanks for looking! Comments and criticism are always appreciated.
  16. A Troll Mage

    Finally finished the adorable Troll Mage from Stonehaven:- I felt she had a real '80s childrens fantasy film' vibe, so I made her rather colourful! Super pleased with how she turned out, particularly the eyes, I think they're my best ones yet (though that probably has more to do with their size than any real levelling up of my skills). C&C, as always, is appreciated.
  17. I think this is okay under current rules, didn't want to do a thread per mini. Here's Pandoras crew all primed and based on some cork:- Next I basecoated their skin, since they're all ghosts (I think) and I needed 1 colour to tie them all together, I used Vampiric Shadow on all of them:- And then I basecoated the smoky, twisty lower halves of the Poltergeist and the Woes with a 3:1 mix of Vallejo Hexed Lichen/Nightmare Black:- I also meant to paint the strand of smoke from Pandoras Box of Mystery the same colour, but I forgot.
  18. Gnome Magician

    Also finished my Gnome Magician:- The blends on the back of his coat could be a little neater, but otherwise I'm really happy with him. Comments and criticisms graciously received.
  19. 77076: Lysette, Female Elf

    After sitting on my desk for a few months, I finally finished Lysette in bones. After working with her on and off, I would really like to get her in metal. Comments, critiques, and feedback greatly appreciated. I'm at a plateau in my painting and could use a good kick in the rear to get to the next level.
