  1. For the Role Player that can't make up their mind! I give you the Eldritch Knight! or at least that is what I think it is called. I would wear armor too if I was tossing fireballs out like a crazy scooby doo villian. Another one of those Paizo Pathfinder minis prior to Reaper taking over. My friend has a bucket of them and I chose this one due to it's uniqueness. yes those are ashes and a body shaped scorch mark. TOASTY!

  3. Hi everyone. Gonna jump right in as a first time GM for PBP. Pathfinder Crypt of the Everflame module. Rules: Pathfinder Core Rulebook 6th printing or earlier with appropriate errata. Never played this module/series. Only items, classes, races, feats from Core Rulebook. 1st level. 20 points "point buy system." Good or Neutral Alignments. No "Traits" Declare "favored class" and bonus HP or Skill Average Starting gold for class from the table, not random. Looking for 5 players so if one is absent, we can still press on. Players roll their own dice and post rolls and modifiers: honor system. I vow to post at least twice weekly ;) Be respectful to me and other members: it may be my first time on PBP as GM, but not my first time as a GM for this game system. Once we have a group, pm me emails so I can discreetly nudge absentees If this sounds OK to you, post some characters.
  4. This comes from a line of miniatures prior to Reaper taking on the Pathfinder line. Made by Paizo in 2005, you will probably be seeing more of these from me in the future since my friend wants every single one he has painted. At first I did not like this model, but after throwing some paint on...the sculpter proved me wrong. A lot of fun to paint too.
  5. I finished the Marid from Reaper's Pathfinder line in January, finally got around to taking pictures. I had originally decided to have her in green clothes, but when I panted them white in preparation for painting the green I though it looks so good I changed my mind. So she got green hair and white clothes instead of green clothes and white hair.
  6. Finally finished this guy up for my current campaign I am running. This was a real labor of love for me. I absolutely love the model and loved working on it even though it seemed as though nearly everything that could go wrong, did. From missing part (quickly replaced because Reaper is awesome) to paint cracking, to one antler wanting to continuously fall off, to problems with the basing (caused mostly by my trying to rush last night to get it done in time for today's session). All in all I am pretty happy with this guy considering my current skill level (not very high). My only regret was not noticing that the right eye socket (left as you look at it) on the helm had a bunch of extra metal debris in it until it was too late. Couldn't get it off without risking breaking the model and unfortunately that prevented me from giving it the green glow that is in the other eye socket and where the nose would have been (to represent magic in the helm). I do wish I had more time to better base the model but I just ran out of time. I also realized the value in basing it first and painting the model on a separate holder (cork, bottle cap, etc.), and will definitely be doing so with future models! Regardless, he can now die with honor this afternoon! At any rate, thanks for looking and as always I appreciate any comments or suggestions for improvements. I am always looking for new techniques or ideas on how to improve my current techniques since I am still so new. WIP can be found here. Special thanks go out to @Xherman1964 for all his suggestions as I was painting this guy up.
  7. Next up in my painting journey for my current Pathfinder game. The Stag Lord, a.k.a. the first Big Bad that the party will encounter (likely at the next session, so I may need to speed up the painting process near the end to get him done). This is also proving to be my first "Moby Dick" mini, or perhaps "Murphy's Law" if you prefer. When I first opened him up, I learned that he was missing his bow arm. While it's certainly plausible he'll lose that arm when he encounters the PCs, it seemed a bit premature to me. :) Fortunately, Reaper Customer Service is awesome and even though it was months after I had placed the order, they still replaced the entire mini for free, which is doubly awesome since as a newbie painter I don't have a lot of random extra bits lying about for basing materials, conversions, etc., so getting a full package was pretty sweet (even though I'd have been thrilled with just the one missing piece). Next thing I noticed as I assembled this guy was that he required a lot of gap filling. The helm was a rather loose fit and the cloak didn't really line up in back either. Ironically, this actually didn't bother me much since i saw it as a chance to practice my gap filling which I have not had to do too much of to date. So with that out of the way, I set about priming and getting the base coat on the skin done. Can't really see it here, but I then noticed a weird issue on the skin. For some reason, the paint on his skin began to crack. This is puzzling to me as I am not sure what could be causing it. I had used the same bottle of paint very recently (like less than a week ago) with no problems. Any thoughts on what could have caused it? I've gone over it with another coat and will see how it holds up, but hopefully he won't need a Simple Green Bath. That said, I'm open to suggestions here. The initial plan from here is to go with kind of a dirty bone look on the helm, gray for the cloak, and Coal Black for the armor pieces. Haven't quite decided what to do with the leggings yet, but I'm thinking possibly a darker brown, but I am very much open to suggestions as I freely acknowledge I only have a basic grasp (if that) of color theory. Anyway, thanks for looking and please feel free to provide C&C as I go. I am always looking for pointers, tips, etc. as I continue to slowly improve to a somewhat passable state. :) Ultimately I will be aiming for Table Top quality which I don't think I will have too much trouble achieving (well my version of TT anyway).
  8. Hi Guys, I have read the guidelines of posting kickstarters and hope I am doing this correctly. If anyone has a chance come along and check out my kickstarter project specialising in hardwood dice boxes. If you have any thoughts or future stretch goal ideas then please I would love to hear them.

  10. Kobolds! Who doesn't love the cute little guys? So these guys were a really quick paint job for my ongoing Pathfinder campaign, and I know what you're thinking. "Gargs, that sorceror is purple!" True, he is, but that's he is described in the module. :) Anyway, for a quick paint job at my relatively newbie level, I'm actually pretty happy with these guys. In retrospect, I probably should have chosen a different color for the shirt on the sorceror, but honestly, wasn't sure what would contrast well with his dark skin. Any thoughts for future reference? Eventually, I may go back and add some OSL to the sorceror as well, but trying to tackle two different flame effects was definitely a bit intimidating to me and I wanted to get them done in time for game day. Biggest fear I had was trying to figure out the color of the OSL effect given that the flames are made up of multiple colors themselves. Anyway, as always any comments, critiques, advice, etc. are always appreciated! Thanks for looking!
  11. Apologies in advance as some of these pictures I fear are a bit larger than I'd thought =/ I tried to crop them well enough for this forum but not sure how well I succeeded. These are the pieces I've made this year, pretty much originally for my swamp board, for Warhammer. However, once I started making them I realized it'd be a better idea to actually make them a bit modular, for all RPGs and other wargames (like frostgrave and malifaux). And it makes for a bit easier storage. Most of these pieces were inspired by the local swamps like Okefenokee here in GA. I find all these kind of areas just beautiful and full of so many unique features! These are some basic Ruins. I found using a foamboard for the base was not a great idea, it warped too much unfortunately. Here (below) a Swamp Pond, or bridge to terra firma as I've called it (couple different versions) My mausoleum piece. This is sort of in keeping with the ruins piece. It's meant to sit in a (obviously) drier part of the swamp, while getting inspiration from the swamp for plants etc. I'm working on two other pieces now (only in planning stages) - one is to be a more central piece of swampy land with lots of water areas and maybe(!) solid land parts, the second is going to be a kind of monster bird nesting spot, something like a marsh bird that nests near swamps. I plan on using pine straw (plentiful out here in GA) to make the "nests", something as yet undecided for 'eggs' and I'm looking for suitable figures for the bird monsters. The idea being a dangerous area PCs (or armies, in wargaming) may or may not want to wander into!
  12. I have been gaming for a vast majority of my life. I've played everything from WarHammer to D&D, and many things in between. In my younger years, before I had actual bills and living expenses, doling out cash for the latest model for whatever table top I happened to be into was not big deal. As an adult, I found myself less willing to part with substantial amounts of money for game pieces. That being said, I have found a love in the Bones sets that Reaper has put out. They are easily modded, and wonderful to paint, and the price!! Don't get me started. In my current Table top game, D&D, I have purchased and painted all of the characters for my players. Each of the players are metal models from Reaper. All of my monsters and NPCs are Bones models, with a couple of exceptions that came from other board games like Zombicide Black Plague or Descent. My players love having painted models on the table, and I feel like it allows them to be more invested in the game. I have even found myself, more recently, looking through the Bones models and building encounters in my cart online. The, I purchase and paint them up, so they are ready for the game. So I was wondering, with all of the talent on these forums, how many of you use the Reaper minis for games (other than the Reaper games like WarLord)? Do you use them for RPGs? Do you ever have trouble finding a mini that suits your needs as a character or monster? CAH
  13. "Hell's Vengeance" is a recent Pathfinder Adventure Path, in which the player characters are evil. This is the first evil-PC Adventure Path that Paizo has produced. One of the friendly non-player characters (NPCs) is a young woman named Cimri Staelish -- a troublemaker in the little town where the adventure begins. She is supposed to adventure alongside the PCs for a while, and let the GM advise the players on how to be evil, if they don't abandon their usual heroic inclinations fast enough. I am running this Adventure Path for some of my friends, so I decided to convert a miniature to represent Cimri. She uses a kukri, wears leather armor, and has a bobbed haircut. Adventure Path #103 has color artwork for her. The Warlord miniature Saramonde (14299), of the Crusaders faction, came to mind as a base figure for a minor conversion: link to Saramonde in Reaper gallery ... so I chopped the sword and scabbard, mashed the sword with flat pliers into a wider blade and carved it into a kukri shape, and sculpted longer hair with Green Stuff. I attached her to a round base and sculpted some dirt and rocks. Here's how the conversion looks. She appeared in the first 3 sessions of the game like this, unpainted. Last week, I started painting. I used brush-on primer and then spent about 2 hours painting almost everything with rough colors: The next day, I painted for another 2 hours, giving higher highlights, sharper lining, and smoother transitions. She is ready for the Forum, and ready for her first full-color appearance in the game next weekend. Enjoy, Derek
  14. This has been sitting on the self of shame for a while. Decided to pull it down and use it to test a color scheme that I want to use for a different model. Looking or feedback. I wanted a somewhat traditional look, but switched up some tans where I normally see whites or blacks.
  15. It's been ages since I painted anything, but my GM for a Kingmaker campaign needed this guy. This is essentially a speed paint -- he took seven hours start to finish, and the brush-on sealer was still a tad goopy in some of the deeper recesses when he hit the table. I kinda wish I'd had longer with him, particularly the armor. Black armor is tough. This is just a single coat of 50% grey with a black wash, and then I had to seal him and go. The base is a pre-cast resin one from Tabletop Arts. The stone is part of the original figure.
  16. Greetings! I'm a DM with an obsession for Bones/Reaper minis and after backing the first kickstarter figured I should use them. I had grand ideas for a campaign so I ended up using these minis as inspiration! The campaign was called The Crucible of Storms. There were lots of memorable moments for me and the players: - Orphaned rogue found their father - a miserable alcoholic guardsman - Paladin was taken over by a vilkacis (werewolf ghost) - Dwarven stonelord created a new colony of refugee dwarves - Tripple 1's for the sorceror - Elven warpriest through skill increases and a strange randomised mutation ended up having +50 to Perception - Paladin killed an aasimar child...to buy everyone time to help kill the Tarrasque (his god was unhappy despite the greater good vibe) - The Tarrasque! Such a momentous fight! The final battle was held in a cthulu-esque god-laboratory where the gods invented humanoid races. A portal to the Maelstrom was unlocked and sucked in the Tarrasque, killing it...forever! Here are some photos from the campaign - sorry in advance for some poor quality photos. Cheers! http://imgur.com/a/0YoqA
  17. I only have phone pics of this guy, but it's been ages since I posted anything here and I wanted to share. The base has been finished since, but the painting was done in 2.5 hours while baby took a nap. It was a bit of a precise with wet blending, and I was riffing on the wizards in Skyrim a bit for the colour scheme (not quite as dark in the end though). I'll update the thread with new pics when I get around to them.
  18. Joined an ongoing Pathfinder campaign, and made these to match the current enemies we have been fighting. One mage, and three thugs. Got basing left to do.: The mage is actually a Warhammer Flagellant with some elven bits. Edit for adding all pics to first post.: Edit: I've now used some more of my cultists for a Blood Bowl team. And there are still a few left on the sprues! This kit has such awesome value. They were all batch painted, last night, after using a couple to choose the scheme.:
  19. I initially bought this figure to use in the Kingmaker campaign I was playing in. However I didn’t get the miniature before we encountered the villain, and he’s sat on my shelf ever since. Quite a quick job on this one and I think he’d make a pretty nice druidy character.
  20. I just started painting miniatures and am really excited how this one came out. I spent quite a while(maybe 40 hours or so) painting this while watching my hubby play Witcher 3. Any suggestions or tips for a new painter? I still need to find a base for this guy! Materials: 77343: Goroloth Army Painter Primer Vallejo Game Paints
  21. Here's my latest newbie WIP. Trying to take some of what I learned from the Bones LTPK2 and apply it here. These little guys are for my current Pathfinder campaign. As you can see here, I've started on the prototype to see if I can get the skin coloration (primarily) and the rest of the scheme looking more or less right. I intend to have fun with these guys as they are meant to just be sort of the red-headed step children of the fey world (at least among the evil fey anyway). Needed two sets of these guys, so normally you only get 3 in a package. Will get around to dotting the eyes of the prototype mite, and am thinking a bright green for the cloak, but not sure how that will look next to the blue skin. Trying to avoid red though simply because red and blue are always my go to colors, and want something a little different this time around. Going with the blue skin though because per the lore, they are in fact blue. Think of them as evil smurfs. ;) Anyway, base coat on the skin is Heather Blue for those who are wondering. Thanks for taking a look!

  24. This is the bones version of Pathfinder Seelah, Iconic Human Paladin (Reaper Bones SKU 89011). this is another on I finished in November 2016, but didn't get around to taking pictures until now. There were some issues with the bones material on this one, the nose was flattened a bit plus there was some pitting. I was happy with the freehand, its a bummer it is off center. But she is good enough for tabletop, and she is off the Shelf of Shame.
