  1. This is Reaper's 60138: Sheila Heidmarch, Venture Captain, sculpted by Patrick Keith. It's a magnificent sculpt. My GM needed vampires for a game, and as I said in my WIP thread, "not all female vampires hang around graveyards in unlikely and suspicious states of undress." So Sheila Heidmarch has been adapted. Jokes about Ventrue Captains may have been made. I got an idea for how to paint velvet as well, so she is something of an experiment in that line. WIP thread here.
  2. I'm playing in a World of Darkness campaign and we need a bunch of vampires. I'm adapting Patrick Keith's 60138: Sheila Heidmarch, Venture Captain to be a vampire, because not all female vampires hang around graveyards in unlikely and suspicious states of undress. All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios. Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated. She's such a pretty and elegant figure! I left off her short sword and staff and filled in the slight dimples where they were meant to go with a little Golden Molding Paste applied with the point of a bamboo skewer. The stuff shrinks when drying, so I heaped it up a little. This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. (I seem to be having a little trouble with it crackling just a bit in some areas, though.) It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers (even though, eh, with a vampire you don't necessarily want "warmth".) I like to paint skin first as something of the undermost layer. After I have the skin more or less smooth and correct I paint the features. I have been painting up vampires with stark white skin because I don't seem to have the knack to make them look undead if there is even a little flesh tone in their skin. Maybe I should paint them violet or something ... Anyhow, this is almost the only time I ever mix grey from pure black and white, rather than a complex mix of brighter colors. The flatness of tone conveys something wrong with the individual, and the simplicity of color mix is very easy to shade. I started with a thin wash of pure Titanium White on her face, neck, bust, and hands. Then (close ups for a while now) I laid in the first pale shadows. All greys are mixed from Titanium White and Carbon Black. Darker shadows and some lights. She's rather a mess now, but you can see how the skin shading is beginning to go.
  3. Happy Birthday Sculptdude

    Merry Birthday to one of the most awesome sculptors around, Patrick Keith aka @Sculptdude!!!
  4. Wraith with Bastard Sword

    This has been one long term challenge paint job! Assembly has been a bear, AND the sword with arm just wants to bend at every touch. So get sets for some tough going in the glue up stage. The painting has been fun, especially when I switched color schemes mid miniature :) The blue black, sapphire black, Ruby red scheme had orange added to the mix. I also changed from a plain base to a mountainous base, with shrubbery ! Lots of changes you can do. Had a blast in the long run. Hope you enjoy the results. Leave me a note please. Here are some photos. Jay
  5. This is Patrick Keith's 50246: Marie, She-Bot, famous from the old Fritz Lang movie "Metropolis," and two other robots Johnny Lauck sold adjacent to his sci fi Salvage Crew. I painted them up in less than an hour. WIP thread here.
  6. This is another of the PCs for an enjoyable mashup of White Wolf's World of Darkness (Vampire the Masquerade, second edition, Werewolf the APocalypse etc.) and Exalted (second edition). This one is an androgynous, or perhaps genderfluid would be a better description, Alchemical, a sort of human-cyborg prototype Exalted made by Autochthon, architect of the world. The Adamant caste are sort of the policemen-secret agent-ninjas of the Alchemicals, making sure society runs smoothly in their mechanized cities. This one is sort of lost, as the Creation of Exalted has morphed into the World of Darkness and Autochthon is nowhere to be found, although things with his name which are not him, echoes perhaps, linger. Anyhow, that's all backstory. The figure is Patrick Keith's enigmatic Numemera Jack, Reaper 62102. There is a WIP thread here.
  7. So my husband is running a game this Saturday and he asked "Do you have any robot figures?" and I said "Ummm, let me get back to you." Happily, I had on hand a copy of Patrick Keith's 50246, "Marie She-Bot" familiar to film aficionados from Fritz Lang's seminal "Metropolis". I also had a handful of little robots from Johnny Lauck's Salvage Crew. So I glued them together and primed them and painted them very simply with metallic paints. The whole thing took less than an hour. For metallics I use the principles I learned for gilding: Everything has a color underneath it, usually a rust-red for gold and a black or grey for silver (or aluminum or palladium -- I never could bring myself to gild with something that could decay as fast as silver leaf). I originally planned to paint the Metropolis robot gold, so I primed her with Red Iron Oxide. Then I did the same with a little monkey-robot from Johnny Lauck (ignore the two little guys to the right; I didn't get further than this with them and I plan to paint them like plastic anyway, if I get to them before Saturday). Then my husband pointed out that if I painted the Metropolis robot silver she could stand in for a Moonsilver Alchemical later on. D'oh! ... Okay, so now I was going to see what silver paint looks like over brick red. For science! I washed over the two red robots with dark paint to bring out the details: Burnt Umber on the little monkeybot, as is normal for under a warm color like gold. But then I used straight Carbon Black on Maria She-Bot since she was going to be cold silver, and black generally looks cold under other colors. I notice that she looks just like the Chinese lacquer sculptures I've seen around, a point worth remembering to try some other time, perhaps. I also painted black primer on the servo on the left, another Johnny Lauck 'bot. I had to glue that one to a fender washer as it had a tendency to topple over to its left; otherwise its base had been the same size as the other Lauck robots. That's also why it appears now; its glue was setting while I was priming the others. (Once again, ignore the two on the right.) I then took my good #2 Winsor and Newton series 7 brush and drybrushed silver metallic paint onto the armed servo Lauck 'bot and Marie, She-Bot. ... I find using good brushes helps give a lot of control and evenness, even for this. This wasn't the really scrabbly kind of drybrushing anyway, more like stroking tiny amounts of unthinned paint over the high points of a countoured surface. Anyhow, you can see the different color effects based on what went under the silver paint, black on the left and brick red on the right. You can also see the detail level difference between Johnny Lauck's sculpt and Patrick Keith's. Then I did the same thing, only using gold metallic paint, to the Johnny Lauck monkey robot. I painted their bases solid black. Normally I like a base with at least a neutral grey with shadows, but I was in a hurry and the black contrasted better with their metallic shininess. I also added a few details, red eyes on the Lauck robots and a glowing yellow inside the armed Lauck bot's gun barrel (Which I see I didn't take pictures of. Need to fix that for the Show Off thread). And there you have it. Really really fast quick and dirty robot painting. Total painting time: About forty minutes. (With prep time, work time is probably an hour, or a smidgen more)
  8. This is my rendition of Bombshell 10035, Kaitlin the Archer. Nice and clean mini without too many fiddly bits, so she painted up pretty quick.
  9. 50308: Vermina

    This is the figure that I sent out for the Spring Exchange. Tracking says it was delivered 5/25, but I haven't heard anything back, so hopefully nothing terrible happened to it. Anyway, my recipient wanted something colourful that could fit in the world of Alice in Wonderland, so I went for a female Mad Hatter sort of look. Sorry for the potato quality pictures as usual. The base gave me a really hard time. The first 2 things that I tried to make it with didn't work out, my original plan had been to have 2 teacups stacked, but I couldn't get the construction to work out, water effect pour went to hell, realized afterward that I should've done more to the sugar cubes and inside of the teacup rim before pouring the water effect and I re-painted the teacup twice and am still not happy with it. The teacup is made from the top of a GW paint pot...one side is thicker than the other, which I really should have shaved down more, but I nearly chopped off my thumb and gave up. I filled it in with greenstuff, which is also what the handle is made out of - I managed to pop the handle off twice, so that was fun. Overall I'm pretty happy with how she turned out, just not the base so much. Anyway, C&C are always welcome!
  10. I'm painting this mini myself, and was wondering if you had any tips for the finer areas like the garter & eyes.. Or (and just as importantly) how to correct a mistake like her eye.. Just paint over, or do you remove & repaint? Todd
  11. 77162: Yephima, Cloud Giant

    I'm super in love with this mini. It was so much fun to work on. And I'm VERY happy with how the eyes turned out because that's something I struggle with a lot. The lighting here is not great, I have misplaced the power cord to my light box, and somethings are off color from what it should be.
  12. 77275: Kelpies (just one of them)

    This mini arrived as part of a WOOF bombing run. (Thanks Xherman!) I figured it was small and relatively easy and would be a good antidote to the madness of Khanjira.
  13. Bombshell Miniatures Dryad

    This is one of the miniatures offered as a special reward during one of the Bombshell miniatures Kickstarters. I don't believe it is for sale anywhere which is a bit sad since its a great little mini. Front view linked for nudity: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_ZgOi70hDxnVXcwVTBOOUVCTUk
  14. Just finished this one last night, I painted her up for Thrym to use as a main NPC in his game as Ravana. I did some glowing and OSL effects as well as a bit of a mod with the belt where I added a skull in on top of what was the snowflake on her belt. Figure: Glacia the Winter Witch (SKU 10052) Manufacturer: Bombshell Miniatures Sculptor: Patrick Keith
  15. Sally Starfield

    Sally is my first finished project from my original Bombshell Miniatures. Patrick Keith is one of my absolute favorite sculptors working today, and Sally was a great model to work on. I really like how the NMM purple turned out and this forum's suggestion of orange for the trim turned out really, really well. Original WIP: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68437-sally-starfield-wip
  16. Kirin the Heretic, Pathfinder Miniatures

    Kirin the Heretic from Reaper's Pathfinder Miniatures Range. I painted this a while ago but forgot to post it.
  17. BABES III September on Kickstarter by Bombshell Miniatures Bombshell Miniatures is very excited to announce Babes III coming to Kickstarter September 19th 2016. We have made special arrangements with artist Chris Walton to reproduce a selection of his fantastic designs for fantasy women. In addition to these, we have several existing designs in the Bombshell archives that may also be produced if we exceed our funding goal. Sculpts are in the works now and over the next several weeks we will be posting progress pictures of them. Join our Facebook Group or sign up on our mailing list for all of the updates leading up to the launch. Save Save
  18. This is 10052 - Glacia the Winter Witch from Bombshell Miniatures. I'm doing this figure not as a winter witch, but rather as an Islander pirate shapeshifter sorceress for a friend as a thank you for doing me a huge personal favor. First off I've added a skull to her belt instead of the snowflake that was there previously. Then I added some green stuff to fill out the belt itself and give it more bulk as well as fill the gaps between the skull and the metal. The base is the uneven planks happy seppuku stamp in sculpey. Inspiration picture- Going to try to get this done over the next few days.
  19. My husband gave me a number of Doctor Who-related miniatures for my birthday and I've started painting them up. They include figures for Jon Pertwee's Doctor and the Brigadier, so when I noticed that this figure, Bombshell Babes #10019, "Dr. Helen Salinger", looked an awful lot like the Pertwee-era companion Liz Shaw it just seemed natural to throw her into the mix. I've already gotten her a bit off and running. I glued her to a base, primed her white, and washed over her with Burnt Umber. I've already painted her face, hair, and glasses. Liz Shaw doesn't wear glasses so I've painted them as sunglasses. Her hair is a new experiment. I had felt that the blonde hair I painted on earlier figures was too yellow and brassy, so this is a much more subdued, colder brownish-grey mix. I believe it contains Titanium White, Raw Sienna, and Burnt Umber and there might be a dab of Carbon Black as well.
  20. Dark Sword - Harbinger Angel

    This is Dark Sword Miniatures Harbinger, Female Angel (SKU 7605) that I got as part of the Dark Sword Stephanie Law Kickstarter. A beautiful figure, sculped by Patrick Keith.
  21. Sally Starfield WIP

    After pledging for both campaigns, I have finally gotten my first Bombshell mini (sculpted by Patrick Keith) to the painting table. I really like the combo of purple and green. It is also giving me a chance to practice another color of NMM. I am thinking I will use blue to pic out the seam details between the purple plates and green cloth. Still undecided about doing the jet pack in NMM purple or a more traditional NMM steel or similar.
  22. Spotted this at Adepticon and found the idea of a steampunk mermaid too fun to pass up. She is exquisitely sculpted with elegant little hands and careful details. I think I would like to paint her a little like a tropical fish, bright yellow with orange stripes. This is my basic figure priming: Removal of mold lines (not too many of those), epoxied to the base, primed thinly with Titanium White and washed with Burnt Umber. I then started building up thin layers of Yellow Ochre (aka Mars Yellow aka Yellow Iron Oxide), a nearly-opaque earth yellow, normally a little dull in color but brighter in thin layers, lightened in places with Titanium White, and a few Titanium White highlights. I used Raw Sienna, a very slightly browner yellow, on the base.
  23. This is Reaper's 50159: Sister Maria, Nun, sculpted by Patrick Keith. I have a friend who once was a nun, who now writes murder mysteries. Some while ago I made a joking reference to my hobby of painting tiny D&D characters and out of curiosity she took a look at Reaper's main site. Which just happened at that moment to have this figure at the top of the page. She was tickled. We are planning a trip by her part of the country this summer, and hopefully we will be able to meet up for a visit. So I am painting up Sister Maria as a present. Basic prep involved gluing her to her base and gluing in her left hand. I chose the ruler option. I had trouble pinning and in the end just glued her hand into place. Then I primed her thinly with Titanium White and washed her with Burnt Umber (not shown). This is my basic prep for all metal minis. I checked with my friend what the colors of her order had been. Then I started with a little white on the nun's habit. I painted solid Mars Black on her dress and along the base edge. I'm a little sorry I did, actually, because it's so black and solid there's little room to go. Normally when I paint blacks I like building up layers of color like a watercolor. Then I did a little preliminary brushing of highlights in a very simple cold grey. This is very rough and crude yet.
  24. Clearing Shelf of Shame

    Buenos dias, greetings and salutations fellow reaperites. I am starting a wip for various reasons. I am trying to motivate myself to complete a few more lead/bone dollies. I hope to continue updating this as I make progress. Feedback of any kind will be greatly appreciated. Even the harshest critics. But you guys are an awesome bunch. For starters I am half way done on this Warg. Sculpted by Jason Weibe and in the bones material. I am attempting to make the warg appear if he is prowling on a moon lit nite. The shadows are a blue paint I can not recollect off the top of my head. Up next is the hell hound. The sculptor is Ben Siens and the material is bones. I am trying to give him a battle worn appearance. To give him that appearance I have painted on faint scars. Now how to improve them and give them depth is a condrum. The next one I have up to finish is a mind eater. The sculptor is Patrick Keith and another bones miniature. The mind eater is an experiment using various mediums. I am also using him to work on different forms of shading techniques. And here is two different kroids. Sculpted by Gene Van Horn and in pewter. The details are amazing. I am trying to figure out the right zombie color I want for the kroid sniper. And finally an oop rackham figure. I really like the sculpt and had bigger plans that I had to scale way back due to reality. I originally envisoned his skulls to be painted asgalaxys and a cosmic scene in the back ground. My talent is not up to par yet. Thank you for viewing. And yep, need to work on editing and pic taking more.
  25. Damned Desolation (Diorama)

    DAMNED DESOLATION She stood before the undead, calm as a frozen winter lake... the zombies and skeleton advanced, their hungry eyes boring into her own, yet she stood still, her Staff of the Twin Suns raised and a prayer upon her lips... The lead zombie took one more step upon the magical rune and suddenly it and its companions were blown back, the earth erupted and the small canal of sewage rose in response to the divine power that was unleashed by Velicia Torynn, cleric. She shoved them all back against the wall to end their undeath once and for all... She couldn't stop now, she had others to help and other Damned to Desolate... -------------------------------------------- Here we go, I loved the cleric figure so much that I decided to go ahead and build a diorama around her as the star of it. The premise came into my head that she uses Divine Magical Runes of protection and destruction to desolate the undead. Figures: Lady Faelwen Nightsinger (her own show-off for more pics of her is here) Adepticon 2015 Exclusive Sculpted by Patrick Keith of Bombshell Miniatures Zombies are Reaper Bones Zombies Skeleton is Reaper Bones Skeleton Rat is Reaper Rat that I got from the boneyard, so I can't link it now. Crate and Barrel are resin pieces from Oathsworn Miniatures WIP for the figure (and the vignette) C&C are welcomed and greatly appreciated! Thanks for looking
