  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. There is a dude who hosts an online painting and chat time through Google Hangouts. It's tons of fun. I have attended several, and met quite a few characters in the process. Overall, they are great group of people who share in my hobby of painting. Here is one of the pieces I was working on while chatting tonight. Its part of a desert theme I have been working on. There is also a scorpion, a group of gnolls, and a group of kobolds The worm will be a boss of sorts, offering my players a hefty challenge. He is still a WIP, but so far, I am really liking the way everything is coming out. The white specks are going to be colored in, but I have at least 1-2 more layers to add for some highlights on the skin before I dive into the details. CAH
  4. Stefan d'Marque moved through the abandoned town quickly. The large holes in the ground disturbed him greatly. Could that be where townsfolk had disappeared to? What manner of creature could move through the rock and dirt in such a manner? His answer came quick and sudden, as the ground beneath his feet shift. Into the air he went, though he was not thrown. The bone crushing, flesh tearing pain surged through his body. Stefan cried out in pain, stabbing downward. It was all for not, as the great beast beneath him swallowed his torso. Stefan took his last gasp of air... his vision blurred, and went dark. The great beast disappeared into the earth, its appetite sated... for now. This one was so much fun to paint. Though I had the idea of a purple worm when I started, I kind of had the joker in mind when I started putting paint to mini. I am very pleased with the end result. CAH
  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. Painted up 77006: Great Worm after NomadZeke requested a nontraditional monster for the 2015 Summer exchange. (It's really fun, you should join) Been trying to work on more range in my shadows and highlights so I tried out the technique from How to Blend by olliekickflip. Still need a lot of practice but I call it a success. All of the shading was done only by starting with a white base and building up the paint.
  7. So neat byproduct of entering your minis into the ReaperCon Master Series Paint Contest is that they take really nice photos of your minis. Did these a few years ago but I've never entered before and they were one of the few painted pieces I inadvertently brought to the con. Several of the other forumites strong armed me into entering and I'm glad they did. These guys did suffer from the "Hey this is Gloss sealer, not Matte!" but other than that I'm still pretty proud of them.
