    Bonesylvanian Bart

    Recently getting back into miniature painting, and decided to start off with a few bones pieces. Ordered this lip fella from Reaper and decided to knock him out around Halloween. Going to put a sealant coat over it and add spot gloss on the blood effects, for now it's all painted highlights. Any suggestions or advice always welcome. JG

    Reaper on the table

    I wasn't sure what the GM was going to run last night, so I just grabbed everything I painted last year. Sorry for the bad phone photos. In the scenario, 5 of us return from a weekend camping trip to find the base invaded. The pink rectangles represent helicopters. We cleared the table with hand weapons and judicious use of twerking. :D

    Water Bender Reaper kit bash.

    I was asked to make a custom Water bending miniature for a customer of mine who is running a Marvel Superhero game at out local Gaming club. I used the Reaper Bones Water Weird (77310) and the Drowned Spirit (03727) to create a custom kit bashed miniature. The players favorite color is Blue so I was asked to fit as many shades of the color into the model as possible. If you have any questions on how I made this feel free to ask here or on my FB page. (facebook.com/TabletopGlory) I have many more that I will be doing for his campaign one of witch will be made from the Virina, Female Demon (03084) where ill be hand painting cloths onto the miniature. (I'll be making a small video to explain all the modifications for this one.)
  4. I was totally impressed by the Impudent Mortal Kickstarter, but seeing as the buildings on offer didn't appeal as much as older stock they had I ordered directly (and boy was it FAST). Because I wanted to get an idea of what I was doing before I tried building my fancy new things, I took advantage of a FLGS gift card to buy a Knight Models SWAT truck for the Batman game. Here are some product pics behind the spoiler The truck/van is mostly done except for touch-ups and sealing... but I'll still be posting process pics that I took along the way. I mistakenly thought it would be faster than a miniature (and I guess it was at my current pace)... but not really. The other ones I'll be posting as I go (I'm planning on using fancy Japanese paper offcuts as wallpaper, so it'll probably be slow).
  5. I wasn't sure where to post this, since I didn't make these. This seemed the best place, though. Found these at Joann a few weeks back. Took the pics, then got so busy with my latest convention I didn't get to posting until now. These are those sorts of porcelain (or plaster or whatever they are) curios people put on their shelves. Many (not pictured) are not to scale for our uses, but the ones in the pics are pretty close, if you like the doughy, comical, fairy look of lawn gnome stuff. The larger pieces are a bit pricey, though. The smaller bits are affordable and probably the better buy, as they are closest to scale. Not pictured are some trees, hedges, and a few other maybe useable bits. I personally would not go this route, but I thought there might be a few people who might be interested.

    (02516) Tortoise Dragon

    A few pics of my latest Reaper D&D monster...the Tortoise Dragon. Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  7. http://lenora-rose.livejournal.com/217423.html One of the cooler things I've seen today (It's been a good day for cool things ...).
  8. This is a model I painted for someone as an anonymous gift. It should have gotten to him today, but I'll leave his forum name off just in case. This model was a lot of fun to paint and I only learned later that my model's armor and the painted version on Reaper's website (you know what I mean :)) both have purple armor. This is only the second time I've painted dark elf skin and its quite challenging for me as I often struggle to have good looking smooth skin tones on human models in general. If I hadn't given myself a hardstop time limit, I would have gone back and tried to shade and highlight the yellow on the armor. I don't think its garish, thanks to the blue cloak, but it could look better IMO. I'm extremely pleased with the blending of her ice crystal weapon "blades". I wasn't sure I could pull it off, but I think it turned out really nice, although the eye isn't immediately drawn to it. Please feel free to give any and all feedback, but I'm really keen to hear if folks think I should have gone with a darker yellow or another color entirely. Is there something I could have done better with the basing? The person I painted this for likes an online comic called Drowtales, which I also happen to like, though I'd not read it in at least two years due to losing all my links when my old computer died. But I went through the comic and found some armor and cloaks that I liked and tried to work them into model itself. Here's what the cloak in the comic looks like (sorry, no back picture): And here's the final model (I apologize for the random cat hair): Thank you all in advance for your feedback!
  9. Painted up 6 more minis from the Bones 2 kickstarter. The bulette is my first official huge! Bases made from green stuff, pumice gel, and happy seppuku stamps.
  10. I've barely made a dent in my Bones 2. This makes 20 out of the lot complete when I add the mummies and ghouls I finished earlier this year. At the very least I'll have painting projects for the next year or three! I worked on this batch over the course of 4 Pathfinder sessions. :) It's fun to paint while roleplaying!

    Hawkman and Possum Druid

    Well, I ended up buying a few pewter miniatures to test paints on before painting up a metal tree for a particular Bones dragon, just to make sure I don't accidentally screw it up. So here are my first two metal minis and I think they turned out well. This is the Hawkman, friend of mine suggested that I should paint him up like a raven and thought "Oh hey, that's a cool idea" then half way through I was like "WHY DO I KEEP FORGETTING HOW HARD BLACKS ARE TO PAINT". Though it was a learning experience that helped me practice a few things. I even added a tiny bit of silver to a separate plot of black paint for the beak so I could get that shiny look on it. Also getting the hang of painting capes and getting the nice lighting effect on them with lightly thinned down paints. This was the Opposum Druid that I had to get after seeing her. She normally has three kids, I might paint up the other two but for now I prefer her like this with her one kid swinging about on that staff. I based the colors off of a possum character off of a webcomic because I liked the comic and I'm not terribly creative when coming up with color schemes.

    My Reaper Miniatures Collection

    Hi all I am from the Uk and wanted to show what i've been up to. I have been collecting and painting figures for a few years now but until recently had'nt painted any of the Reaper figures. However that has changed and hopefully you will enjoy my work. I am happy to receive hints and tips as I find that helps with the next figure. This is still a WIP from the Bones series, what do you guys think of the white armour? Heres the finished Bones that are now awaiting a dungeon to crawl through...

    92852 - Burrowing Horror (Bones II)

    This is actually my second paint job for the Bones 2 line but the other two are still WIP until I can finish bases and all that. So I give you my first fully completed Bones II, the Burrowing Horror! I used quite a few paints in this and I don't remember them all but basically: Tanned Leather (Base) Black wash Dirty Bone Yellowed Bone Bathalian Chitin Oiled Leather (Brown highlights around the bone plates) Sun yellow (additional highlights and eyes) Blazing Orange (eyes) Maggot white (teeth) A different leather on the belly, I can't remember the name!) Devlan Mud wash for the final wash I may still attach some sand or grass between the bone plates but I'm not sure yet.

    Jasonator's 2014 personal likes

    I wasn't too sure where to put these, so I'll put them here. These two aren't the best photographs, just the best I can do now. There are 35 Miniatures in the case. I have painted over 100 mini's this year, so I am happy with about 25 percent of my output now, I am sure that I will not be happy with some of these by next year. So here are two photos of my wall display case. Lets make 2015 our best year of painting !

    Resell legality?

    Hey guys, I have a question that I could not find on the forums, but maybe I didn't search well enough but here goes nothing. Is it legal for someone to buy a miniature from Reaper, paint the miniature, and then resell it? I mainly want to know about whether it is illegal for me to do so (I would be selling them on a site like Etsy, etc.) If it is, what would I have to do to go about it being legal? If there is a thread already describing this in detail, directing me to that post would be all I need. Thanks in advance.

    Giant Anglerfish

    Hi all, Here is another one I just finished, the Giant Anglerfish. I also sculpted it, but I'm just going to show the painting steps. To simplify things, any inks referred to in the text are Liquitex Professional Acrylic Inks, and the matte medium is by Liquitex also. White and Black paint is Americana Brand. So, step one is the ubiquitous zenith priming, with black first, then white at an off angle from above, maybe about 60 degrees up (30 deg from nadir). It takes some practice to get the right amount of coverage and the highlights doing this, but it makes washes and glazes easier to apply and get a good result quickly. The next step is to apply base coats with thinned opaque paint, and by that I mean things like most hobby paints created for coverage. They should be thinned to a light cream consistency. For the body, Vallejo Game Color "Hot Orange" was used. The teeth were given a coat of Americana Desert Sand (cheap but effective paint). Th mouth was given a light coat of purple ink mixed with Desert Sand. The fins, eye and lure were given a light coat of Cerulean Blue ink, which is more like a thin opaque paint than a transparent ink. Everything was left to dry fully before the next step. The next step was to make the bold red base color. This was done with Napthol Crimson ink, after which it was left to dry fully. Next, the rad was darkened with Golden Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Red, a very transparent red with very dark and bold color, mixed with various amounts of black, matte medium and water. This step involved some wet blending to give a bit of transition. It took a few applications of the paint, letting it dry in between, to get the dark shadow area on the cheek. The teeth were given a wash of black + purple ink + Desert Sand. Again, everything was allowed to dry fully. It may help to have a fan nearby. The next step is something that may be called "ugly" as it is a rough drybrush of VGC Hot Orange all over the body, with some stippling to make an irregular skin pattern. Now back to "pretty" again, with a glaze of Quinacridone Red to even out the drybrushing, and then highlights added all over the body with Hot Orange, mixed in some places with a bit of Reaper Golden Highlight. Here, some of the creases and cracks are highlighted on the bottom edge to make them look like they are illuminated from above. The lights were the focus of this step. They were fist given a light coat of Cerulean Blue ink, then highlighted with a mix of white and blue ink. More highlights were added to the body here also. Glow from the lure was added to the head with a glaze of Cerulean Blue ink, "scrubbed" around with the brush to make it a bit irregular. The fins were glazed with Dioxazine Purple ink. Now, to finish things off, the lights were highlighted some more with pure white, thinned so it went on smoothly and could be applied in layers. The fins were given a wash of thin Hot Orange near where they join the body. Then the whole fins were brushed with purple ink mixed with white paint. The teeth were given multiple layers if white, mixed with a touch of Cerulean Blue ink, while the inside of the mouth was given light glazes of pink, shadows with washes of black paint, then some more highlights with pink. The eye was done by painting a light gray iris, then applyign multiple layers of thinned white to make it look hazy, then adding the reflections with pure white paint. When dry, more glazes of white were added over to smooth it out. Some edge highlights were applied to the body with Cerulean Blue + white to make the source lighting effect. The base was painted with a drybrush of Desert Sand. When dry, it was given a wash of Turquoise Ink then let to dry. Then it was washed with Burnt Sienna ink, with some Magenta ink here and there, and then given a glaze of Burnt Sienna and Turquoise ink mixed together (a greenish hue). This was allowed to dry fully, then white highlights were added. Now, here is a size comparison of the anglerfish with the nautiloid and a little Clal-Chk bug man (still close to 35mm tall). The other figures would make a nice snack for the anglerfish.
  17. (Update 9/23: Zombies and Swarms, oh my!) Rather than make this first post a long page of doom, I'll just reply to it with more pictures and link to it here. 9/23 Zombies and Swarms Hey guys! I figured I'd just start my own topic for my painting log as I power through all the bones I got! I will be updating this as I paint more. :) 77012: Gnoll Warrior My first Bones Mini! I bought him while waiting for the rest to arrive, to see what this was all about. This is out of the box and painted. Didn't know about washing them first. >.> 77169: Flesh Golem Painted as an Earth Golem, because I didn't get the forces of nature addon. 77171: Stone Golem See above. :P 77090: Mason Thornwarden This was an experiment in speed painting. I think I painted him in about 45min from start to finish. Not bad. He was just a breif encounter/NPC for my game the following night and I wanted some color on him. A Goat from Crocodile Games...do you know how hard it is to find a goat/ram mini? Guh. 02764: Desmaendus, Gladiator An interesting thing, my D&D world that I've been running for 6 years now features a fantasy version of Egypt and a Grecco-Roman civilisation. To that end, no fair skinned PCs! Been a lot of fun painting all these characters. :) 02738: Helena Female Gladiator I Lurve this Mini. Really, really fun to paint. 89013: Ezren, Iconic Wizard When working on this guy, I tried to stick to a real limited pallet. I like the way it turned out. 77121: Liela, Dark Elf Wizard So far this is the only Bones mini I've toruble with. A lot of the detail on her was...smudged for a lack of a better term. Was a little bit hard to work on, so some of it got fudged. 14230: Sir Daman,Crusaders Hero I hate to say this, but Reaper desperatly needs some new armored female mounted characters. The Garrity ones that are out there are really, really dated, and the rest either don't have armor, or their horse is standing still. Hopefully we'll see some new ones with KS2!! That being said, I LOVED painting this mini. 77063: Duke Gerard When I knew I was making a mounted character for D&D, I knew I was gonna need a on-foot version. I opened my case of bones, and this guy was the first one I pulled out. I was THRILLED. Close enough. :) 77047: Goldar, Male Barbarian with Heaswap Another fun mini made even more fun with a little head swap. I admit, I did feel a little bad taking the nippers to him, but only for a moment. :) Well, that's all I've got done for now. Cheers! -Yote
  18. Hey Everybody, I didn't see a "New people say hi here" thread, so I thought I'd feed two birds with one seed and say hi here while also showing some of the very first miniatures I've ever painted (well, as an adult). That's right. Brand new to painting here. I tried it once as a kid but I didn't know what I was doing and only really managed to massacar a few skeletons and vampires with heavy handed use of enamal paints. I should really try to find those figures some day... If only I could, and strip them down and repaint them - a story of redemption - but I digress. Where are the goblins right? well right here!; It's hard to get a good close up with my camera on my phone - but I'm really into this rock. You should probably go ahead and expect to see me pose just about all of my finished minis on it. Ah yes. Blury inability of my phone to take close up shots. Charming. This guy (with the mace) is probably turned out the best of all of them - either that, or the other mace guy. Another blury spear guy. Well at least the guys in the background look cool... right? And here is the whole scouting party. Yes, it's only half of the Goblins from dungeon attack. The other half is being painted by friend/housemate/indentured mini-painting slave, Kya. So anyway, that's that. If you've read this far, Thanks! and Hi! Please reply with your favorite painting "cheat" - You know, some trick you know that saves time, or just looks super cool. I know a little bit, but I can always know more and I really don't know anything. Also take a look at my trade thread over in the kickstarter trade thread (shameless plug, I know).
