  1. Finished up all the bones 2 Mouslings. Can't wait for the Bones 3 space marine ones.
  2. As part of this month's getting to know you thread a challenge was proposed, try a technique you've never done before. For me that was OSL. So I used the Mousling Druid to attempt this. For a first try I don't think it turned out too bad. The lighting in my room isn't great so I hope it reads okay.
  3. Going to use this guy as my first attempt at OSL. This was inspired by Talespinner's challenge in the getting to know each other thread.
  4. This was my second diorama that I did for ReaperCon 2016. I started toying with ideas after the Mousling Award was announced and originally pictured a few Mouslings in a cave, totally oblivious to the spider on the ceiling. This changed when I was sorting through some burl wood and came across the piece that I used. I used wolf spiders as my inspiration as they like to make their home in holes and so rather than a cave, I had the Mouslings hunting the spider in a field. It just came together perfectly and I had a blast painting them. I am so addicted to Mouslings now. "The Hunt" MSP Open Mousling Third Place
  5. Okay... I have a couple of this adorable mini and figured I'd try to do it the way the artist envisioned it, instead of how it had to be cast... As it's only a minor conversion, and I'm not going to go into tedious detail, I didn't bother to make a thread in the conversion section. So, first off, chop it into pieces! Then chop it into more pieces, and drill holes through them! (Look closely and you can see a beading wire run through the parts) The LED I'm going to use, shown together with a part I'm not going to use, for size comparison. It's a bit bigger than the ones I've messed with before, but that is mostly because it's an RGB LED. (Red, Green, Blue.) Which also explains the 4 thin wires. Here the LED is in place in the scythe handle and placed in a mould of generic 'Blue Stuff'. (The mould was made before I started cutting. I just didn't take pictures of that. Check GreenStuff World's YT videos for how-to) Yes, the mould is two part... Expect to spend an evening if you intend to do the same. Also, for [insert deity]'s sake, pick a single-colour LED as fitting an RGB LED is a pain in the... (I used te RGB LED because I wanted Blue light, and I didn't have any Blue LEDs in my toybox) Finally! Time to start painting... Some Vallejo Gray primer on hands and face, Vallejo 70.614 'IDF Israeli Sand' primer on the handle. The blade(made of clear resin, 'jewelry resin') isn't primed yet... Now for the Black primer... Note that I've been careful to use only a very thin layer on the edge part of the blade. Priming done, it's time to begin slapping on paint... And the first was 09437 Dragon Black, That went on undiluted using a Rosemary&Co #0 filbert. Then I mixed up a concoction I call 'Stygian night', (one drop Dragon Black, 2 drops 09423 Styx Purple) and used as the first highlight. Second highlight is Styx Purple. And finally a dab of 09686 Gothic Crimson for good measure. I will probably need to go over some areas with Dragon Black again, and I also need to think a bit about the tears on the edge of the robe. The blade will get a thin metallic coat, and the handle will get the Vallejo Old Wood weathering.
  6. Here is the mousling knight I entered at ReaperCon. I used him as an excuse to practice shaded metallics I learned from Michael Proctor at a previous ReaperCon. He earned a Bronze medal. Since this year's Con was postponed by 6 months, I kept putting off projects thinking I had plenty of time. Then, the school year started, and suddenly there was no time left. I already have several ideas for next year's competition. Now I just need to get started on them early. Time to step up my game and get Silver.
  7. I bought some of the bones mouslings for my wife to paint. Well she never got around to it and I needed a druid/animal mage who was going to animate a treant in our game so I slapped some paint of this little guy. Now I'm really looking forward to the bee keeper one. I also have the rogue and assassin set too. I stole the shooting star robe idea from someone who was doing an eye painting tutorial on youtube. Mine comes no where near his though.
  8. I'm getting the Space Mouslings from KS3 and was thinking of using them for a scifi skirmish miniatures game. To do that I need to generate stats for the figures to adapt them to the game. Is there any background material (art, stories, game materials) around for any of the mouslings to help flesh them out?
  9. This is the second time I've done up the Easter Mousling, might have to get one every year and try something different with him. C&C welcomed.... Thanks for looking.
  10. An older figure, cast by GFI. (Note that GFI has been out of business for some years, so these are probably difficult to find now.) From an old thread, there is some question as to whether GFI actually had the rights to the figure, but I think Tom Dye thought he had the rights. BTW, the four figures in this line weren't sculpted by Gene van Horne. Not intended to be competition-quality.
  11. I'm trying to find a good mousling for the Apprentice for my Frostgrave band - actually will need two since I still need to do the kids' band - but I'm not really seeing one that fits :( I might pick up something from darksword - but I do worry their size isn't in line with reaper mouslings. I could do a second band in their stuff, np, but still leaves me in a bit of a hole for the first. I don't want to just do another wizard mouse :( Someone on FB group suggested the priest/monk guy but... he kinda doesn't fit, to me. Too much like a cleric. Anyway have any thoughts? I guess I could try to convert one but that's not my strong point. my current band's here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66730-10033-mousling-heroes-completed-rpchallenge/ (still working on the archer and I think another mousling)
  12. Hello, I used to paint Games Workshop miniatures when I was a kid, but was put off for many years by the price. Having found out about Reaper recently I decided to get back into it. I picked up the Learn to Paint Kit, a few extra Reaper miniatures and some extra paints/brushes. The valkyrie I have attached was my first attempt after a long break, and now I am getting onto the mouslings. I am having some difficulties though. I would love to hear any feedback on these difficulties I list or any other criticism or advice. With the valkyrie there are some parts I am quite happy with. Her right eye was never great, and has got messed up a bit somehow (I am dreading fixing it, maybe I should get some greenstuff and fashion an eyepatch?). Also her face has a kind of chalky look to it that I don't know how to avoid. I didn't have any gold paint, so I tried to do her armor as leather with metal features. On the chest that seems to have gone quite badly. For the hair I think it could do with more "depth" but I am having trouble working out how to achieve that. Her base I am actually quite happy with (in contrast to the other miniatures). As cliched as it is, I was going for an "evil albino" look with the mousling assassin. Having looked again at the stock photo in the store I may try to put some of the caucasian flesh colour I have on his nose. I had tried mixing up a pink before but it looked way too "valentines day". His eyes are also looking pretty flat, and I'm also having some trouble making his fur look "furry". The bases on these mouslings (and some other miniatures I have) have been a real challenge to get looking right. Recently I have been trying basecoating with shadowed stone, washing with brown liner, and highlighting with leather brown, but whatever I do I can't get it where I'm happy with it. I decided to do the druid more as a wizard (I bought a trio of reds for a dragon I am holding off on painting so I want to use those). I have had issues painting the orb in his staff (I want it to have some sort of blue mystical look). I was having problems with the colour of the staff or the orb flowing into the crevice between them and looking bad, so I did a sort of outline with diluted brown liner and now plan to paint the orb "up to" the edge without the paint flowing into it. I am happy with his eyes, but his fur is also a struggle. I was going for "black mouse" though I then switched to "dark grey mouse" so I could try to get some shading in. The thief and beekeeper I am really just basecoating for now (I include them here so I can follow up with them later). I had some trouble with the pale saffron yellow being weird, but I think it just required far more shaking than I was giving it. Thank you for reading.
  13. Two Reapers in succession !! Who would have thought ! This was a painting, and a basing challenge for me. I tend to attempt both in the same mini. A wonderful mini (extremely amusing) to paint, and a challenge to base. I had a blasts doing him. I so wanted to share what I was thinking while doing this, if nothing elsel just the deep laughing while doing it. You comments and criticism are always welcome and desired. Here's Yoshi, the mousling Samurai.
  14. I have painted up a half dozen of the Mouslings from the Bones II Kickstarter for characters in a game with lots of odd races. This one is a hunter / falconer, except it uses a bee instead of a bird of prey. WIP thread here. Other figures in this group: Yeoman "Robin Hood", Druid, Ranger With Bow, Thief, Assassin
  15. This is a new Mousling thief from the Bones II Kickstarter. I've painted up six different Mouslings for a campaign. WIP thread here. Other painted Mouslings in the set: Beekeeper, Assassin, Ranger With Bow, Yeoman (Robin Hood), Druid
  16. This is a little assassin Mousling, the second of six Mouslings I've painted for a seriously multispecies campaign. WIP thread here. Other Mouslings in this group: A Yeoman, A Ranger, A Thief, A Beekeeper-Falconer, and A Druid
  17. This is one of six Mouslings I've painted out of the ten new ones from the Bones II Kickstarter. I'm a little ambivalent about the "girly" Mouslings with the bosoms and the hair and the feminine accoutrements. I prefer to think of the Mouslings overall as general-purpose, could be boys or girls. Anyhow, this one, like the rest of them, has fun and not too fiddly details. WIP thread here. Other painted Mouslings: 92743, Archer (Robin Hood), 92744, Druid, 92746, Thief, 92747, Beekeeper, 92749, Assassin
  18. This is one of the new Bones Mouslings from Reaper's second Kickstarter. I painted up six (out of ten) of them for a campaign. Two of them are archers. This one is sculpted up like a tiny Robin Hood. WIP thread here. Other painted Mouslings: 92744, Druid, 92745, Archer (squire), 92746, Thief, 92747, Beekeeper, 92749, Assassin
  19. This is one of six Mouslings from the Bones II Kickstarter that I have painted up as characters. This is a druid with an orb on a staff and the tiniest chibi frog imaginable on top. WIP thread here. The other Mouslings: Thief, Beekeeper, Assassin, Ranger (with Bow), Archer (Robin Hood)
  20. So I'm painting up some of the Bones II Mouslings to be used as ship's crew and NPCs in a fairly weird game. These aren't all of them. There's also a mouse king and queen (with pointy hat with veil), a samurai, and a classic wizard, all nice but not quite for my purposes. To be honest, I have mixed feelings about the buxom little "girl" mice. I prefer to think of all Mouslings as something you'd have to be a mouse to tell the difference, like in real life. But gosh, they are cute. At the moment I am referencing real mice for coloring. One Mousling is going to be black, one white, and four a kind of mousy brown. There will probably be some variation on this. Here the six I'm doing are, cleaned up and washed with Reaper's Brown Liner, and a bit of paint added to the white mouse. Here the basic colors of the fur are blocked in and I've painted their tails and ears pink. Black mice seem to have a slightly darker pink, but on the whole all mice seem to have delicate pink tails and ears. Real mice have tiny, pink, handlike feet, while the Mouslings have more teddybear-like paws. I am compromising by painting their fingers and toes pink.
  21. HI all! I'm just getting round to posting some photos from ages ago. C&C welcome.
  22. Morning all (or at least it's morning here in Maine). I finally got around to painting a Mousling, and I might be hooked! This little fellow took less than an hour, not including his base, but I was pretty pleased with the results. I love his mildly-grumpy expression: this is one barkeep who doesn't want to hear about your problems. Thanks for looking!
  23. Totally awesome little sculpt. I painted her up to include with the Mice and Mystics project I did before Christmas, but am only now getting around to posting her. I'm very pleased with what is really only a three-to-four hour paint job (though the time is why there's no OSL; if I ever have another one of her to paint, there will be...). I was trying for "blind" with the eyes, there are white pupils that just aren't apparent in the photo. The base is painted to match the other heroes in the M&M set. As ever, C&C are welcome and appreciated.
  24. Well there are a couple parts I just finally went "okay that's as good as I can get it" A bit shiny for one thing. But mostly I'm really happy with her. This is for my sister in law.
  25. First completion of the year! Woohoo. Okay, so I started it last year, but still... A really fun figure to paint.
