  1. Stompy Robots

    Here's a couple of robots from Rattrap's pulpy sci-fi game. I painted one in brass and one in bronze, the color shows better in person. I made bases from Reaper 1" rounds which were hollow on one side (the ones we got at Reapercon) and a happy Seppuku stamp. In the background is a little terrain marker I made with a plastic barrel from Secret Weapon, a cannister from a Reaper weapon sprue, and a piece of textured foil from a coffee can.
  2. hey , i would like to get a comparison scale for Franck Buck with some of the most common 28mm on the market like Wargame Foundry, Crusader, Artizan, Coppelstone, etc... The main problem is the scale different between several miniatures in the Reaper range. For example, the dwarfs, when you have to mix them with other manufacturers is sometime difficult. thank you for your interest regards Eric
  3. New York Bop by Ghetto Miniatures is getting relaunched on the 1st May, after coming so close to funding first time around, hopefully with a restructured campaign they will fund this time round. New York Bop is a tabletop skirmish game set in the 1970s, gangs battle it out over a campaign map of the New York City boroughs or just in one-off games. There are 4 starter gangs to choose from, with various pledges ranging from just PDF rules to create your own gang member. Il post the start time once it has been determined by Ghetto Miniatures.

  4. Part of getting back into painting after such a long absence involved painting figures that I found to be pure fun. As I greatly enjoy painting Pulp I decided to put together a team that used a mix of figures from Reaper and Counterblast. Reaper figures are so versatile, they can mix well with just about anything out there. Reaper figure #50129 sculpted by Patrick Keith Counterblast figure, sculpted by Patrick Keith Counterblast figure, sculpted by Patrick Keith Reaper figure, #59041, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi Counterblast figure, sculpted by Patrick Keith Patrick is one of my favourite sculptors as his work has so much character. Further, he's done so much work with Reaper, he's like Reaper Family to me. Thank you for looking.
  5. I have finally completed my Dark Debts crew for Malifaux :) Jakob Lynch and Hungering Darkness The Illuminated A Beckoner and Mr. Graves Looking forward to comments and criticism! More (and larger) pics: https://gabbigames.wordpress.com/2015/11/01/malifaux-neverborn-dark-debts/
  6. This month has been really busy, but I managed to at least get a couple more Mekkus done. These ones have a pair of Pulsar Rifles. And here is my Mekkus squad now. Still 3 more to paint from what came in the KS.
  7. Hey all, Been a while since I posted a WIP, but I'm working on one of the ReaperCon resin exclusives and I'm keen for some feedback. I'm pretty much done with the skin and hair so far, but I'm keen to hear what people think of it. In particular I'm trying to think more about how hair should be highlighted, but blue hair is maybe not the easiest to do that with. Also worth noting that the green eyes don't pop as much as I thought they would, but I'm not disappointed (at least not enough to try a do-over). Might have needed to add some white to the green. The yellow cloth has only had a single coat of base colour so far, to give me an idea of how it's all going to look, and the headdress, collar, bracers, weapon et al are going to be silver. Not 100% sure on what colour the boots will be yet, but my wife suggested making them silver as well which could work; any advice for painting metallic cloth would be appreciated. I kind of like the slightly Martian look that the base has so far, so I think I'll continue in that direction.
  8. I also managed to whip through a couple of Mekkus Aggressors. These are the version with twin Particle Beam weapons. Here they are with the Defender I'd already done.
  9. I managed to get two more figures painted for my Lancers squad in May. First up we have the Captain, He's a Shrinaar, which I guess are a race of space-faring cat people. And we also have the "Veteran" H0pr Bot. He's seen some action and hasn't even had time to get the second hand replacement parts repainted.... Here's a shot of my Lancers squad at this point.
  10. This is the first figure for the 2nd faction I'm painting up for Counterblast, the Mekkus. They are your classic all conquering robot race who turned on their creators and are not running rampant across the galaxy! I started with the Defender #1, a heavily armored defensive unit. Hopefully the fairly simple paint scheme will make it quick to get the whole squad painted up.
  11. And here is a H0pR Bot for my Lancers squad. He's a great fig, lots of ways to pose him. I had a lot of fun painting him up.
  12. Another member of my Lancers squad, this is the Human Brute. I had real problems with his eyes, so I decided "It's Sci-Fi" and gave him silver implants. Really happy with how the rest of him came out though.
  13. Finally got some more of my Counterblast Lancers crew done. Here's a Human Plugger. Overall I'm pretty happy with her. Eyes could have been better, just not with me painting them....at least they are pointed close to the same direction!
  14. Finally got another of my Counterblast Lancer crew done, this time an Altanti Lanceguard. Really like the different species in this setting.
  15. CHAPTER XVI The rocket shuddered as the flare behind, even at distance, buffeted the small craft to and fro. Dr. Bedlam glanced around the cockpit; though rivets shivered and struts groaned, the vessel still seemed to hold together. Stretching out a tanned, muscular arm, he drew back the throttle, decreasing fuel flow to the overworked engines; in response, the rocket slowed slightly in its passage through the luminiferous ether. He'd made it! But Dr. Bedlam allowed himself no self-congratulations; the job was not yet done. His tanned, muscular chest still ached, and his tanned, muscular back still bore the marks of the whips of the Voodoo Virgins of the Vengeance Vector! He had allowed himself to be cozened once, and the inhabitants of the planet Gorkulon had paid with their lives. He would not be fooled again! Luck had been with him once, but even he dared not count on such when the fate of the Galaxy was at stake! The Voodoo Virgins would stop at nothing to dominate the Sagittarius Arm, and Dr. Bedlam knew that although the Galaxy Bureau of Investigation was clever and mighty, the wiles of the Voodoo Queen, Squeema, and her hypnotic powers of seduction would catch them unawares. Unless he, Dr. Bedlam, were to get there first... and warn them! Suddenly, a flicker of light on the Omniscioscope caught Dr. Bedlam's attention. "Eh?" he said to himself. "There's no way they could have caught up yet -- unless..." A blip of light appeared on the hemispherical screen. Before his tanned, muscular eyes, it seemed to grow... and grow ... and GROW... TO BE CONTINUED!
  16. The are the first of the Counterblast figures I've completed. This BdE Bot was painted a while ago, but I never got around to basing it. Finally got that done. This guy was fun to paint. Finally an eye big enough for me to work with, and no worries about having to line it up with another one . I kept the bases simple on these as Counterblast is a skirmish game I hope to be playing before too much longer.
  17. [GROUP/OPEN] Counterblast!

    Decided to start on my Counterblast! figs in the new year, and I know there are some others on the forums here that were in on that kickstarter, so figured I'd start and open topic. I went in for the Ultonium level and got one of each starter set. That's a good sized pile o' figs.... I'm planning to start with the Mekkus. Let's open those bags and take a look. Ummmm, hmmm. I need to go sort out what belongs with what I think....
  18. As some of you know I have become obsessed with the Pulp genre. To date I have confined my explorations to Pulp Sci-fi. So entranced am I by everything Pulp I am now exploring other areas of the genre. This is my first foray into Jungle Adventures and I find it a refreshing change of pace. The sculpts both come from Bombshell Miniatures and were sculpted by Patrick Keith. The Cave Girl is one of his Babes and the Spider is an Edo Tracker from his new Scif-fi game Counterblast, which is part of the Bombshell Babes family. The large plants are aquarium plants that I painted and are commonly used by painters within this genre. The flower patches are from Scenic Express and the leaves are from Secret Weapon. I carved the stone she is standing on from Super Sculpey. Thank you for looking.
  19. 50079: Invisible Man

    And here is the mini I will probably be entering in the Single Mini portion of the Spaceship Superstar contest. His casting was a bit off, and his face is lopsided, but them's the breaks.
  20. 80007: The Black Mist

    Here's The Black Mist for the Trash It Beauty Contest, though I don't have any appropriate trash for his base (so I'll be skipping the basing contest with him). The cobblestone street was given an extra coating of gloss varnish at the end, so the street would look wet. I'll definitely look into getting some better photos for the actual contest entry, though. As always, C&C welcome!
  21. Next year's Reapercon will have a retro sci fi theme. I thought I'd start a thread to gather helpful and useful tips and hints for costuming ideas. Here's something (mildly edited) I posted on the 2014 Reapercon Cosplay thread: I was in Jo-Ann fabrics earlier today and found something cool and sci fi looking. It's metallic-look flexible mesh tubing, about 8mm in diameter, intended for flower arranging (I gather you loop it around, or something, with the flowers). It's super flexible and super lightweight and comes in 20 yard packages for about five bucks. It comes in various metallic colors and iridescent white, although I gravitated towards straight silver. I imagine it snaking all over a retro astronaut outfit. It's more delicate, and more showy, than the flexible plastic tubing I found at the hardware store (which is meant to hold multiple computer cords together and also looks pretty cool and astronauty).
  22. In my continuing effort to work with more subdued palettes, I decided to paint Edna, the Crazy Cat Lady (50235) and Baron Simone LeCroix (69029) When painting Edna, I had in mind an old lady who smokes 3 pack of Camels unfiltered a day and drinks copious amounts of gin straight up. In short, I wanted her to look a bit sickly. To that end I painted her skin in a green/grey tone and continued that in her skirt and in the linoleum floor. With the Baron I wanted to be very minimal with my palette and to also use subdued colours for the figure. I made both bases myself from Super Sculpey. They are a bit on the thick side and could look better. But if you don't start somewhere, you'll never get anywhere and in time I hope to improve this skill. Thank you.
  23. #50150 Betty, Space Heroine

    This is my entry for the Pulp Themed Competition. She was a lot of work, but I learned a great deal by doing her. I did a detailed W.I.P. also http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/49983-olearys-wip-thread-of-everything-reaper/page-4#entry750121 I've enjoyed painting Pulp so much that I've bought more Reaper Chronoscope Pulp and am participating in a Pulp Painting Club. Can someone tell me how to link to text as I have no idea how to do that. Also I have no idea why this added that attached Thumbnail to the bottom and I can't get rid of it. My apologies.
  24. The Shadow Knows!!!

    So I knocked out the Shadow from my Vampire Pledge first. As always C&C Welcome.
  25. 50079: Invisible Man

    I started this guy over a year ago and stopped about halfway though as, at the time, I didn't really have a style yet and was just switching away from a Wet Pallet and learning a new way to paint. I decided to call this summer the "Summer of Shame" as I'm forcing myself to finish projects as I've got a whole slew of things coming in the new few months via Kickstarter so I need to show some discipline. When I picked him back up the coat was about the only thing done so I did some quick touchups and then moved on to the rest. Trying out a new technique that's basically a mix of wet blending and glazing. All the black on him (which is actually purple) was done in about 90 minutes with this technique so I think there's some validity to it. The base, outside of the metallics, was all done via pigments. Comments are, as always, welcome.
