  1. Fixing Ma'al Drakar

    No, I'm not neutering a 5 headed dragon, I'm fixing the sloppiness that occurred on Ma'al Drakar due to the time crunch during my 7 day challenge. First things first: Those aren't spots I missed, those are spots that I just spent the last few hours scraping with an x-acto to remove the mold lines that I'd missed. Yes, it was absolutely as heartbreaking to do as you think it was. I thought someone might find some use in seeing how I'm going about reworking things in my attempt to bring this beastie to Reapercon. So the destruction's done, next step, patching things up and continuing working on the mold lines I couldn't scrape off.
  2. Today, I'm not feeling working on my main ReaperCon project for the diorama so I figured to stay productive and still do something I'll go ahead and start a WIP thread for some tabletop to tabletop+ painted figures of mounts and/or animal companions for the characters in my D&D game. First off I'm doing these three bones figures: animal companion brown bear (Jim), animal companion black panther (Alex), and Phantasmal blue panther mount (Bagheera). These are for the monk/ranger character in my D&D 'Broken Gods' game. I will use some green stuff to even out and blend into the bones broccoli bases, the bigger panther will get a green stuff made saddle and harness. After I'm done with these three: I will paint up a golden lion (the companion to the panther figure from bones 3 I believe) Find a fox figure big enough to be a mount - will need to be about 1 1/2 to 2 inches long. Acquire a nightmare figure for a mount or modify a horse or unicorn
  3. Skeleton Army

    A small army of skeletons that I finished a bit ago for an upcoming game. Nothing super exciting, but I really like how Sepia Wash over Dirty Bone comes out on these guys.
  4. Adorable Abominations

    So last year at Reapercon I took Bryan's conversion class and he let us know that at the Reaper booth at the con, they were selling conversion packs filled with pieces of Bones figures to be used in conversions. I bought 2 packs. They'd been sitting in a closet ever since until last week I decided to open them up and see what I had and what I might want to do with them. I ended up having a lot of fun putting together a bunch of little abominations, but I was sitting on my couch while in the google hangout and so there was no glue involved. I stuck each combination into a little baggie and took pics so I would remember how they should go. I haven't really been painting or doing any hobbying for a while though and so they were likely destined to sit in a drawer for a while. However, seeing maxstyles post about World Wide Miniature Day, I decided I could commit a few hours to working on these little guys. I meant to get going earlier, but I've been really tired today and had gone all slug mode on the couch. But I think I have a bit of a second wind now so I'm going to see what happens. Here are the first two that I glued together the other night. Don't ask me what any of the parts are. They weren't listed in the conversion packs so I have no idea.
  5. Anirion, Wood Elf Wizard

    My Reaper Learn to Paint kit just finally arrived after one set getting lost in the mail and the other taking its time. Last night I decided to end a stressful day by painting. Very pleased with how Anirion came out, would still like to refine my photo taking. The light tent I threw together is helping, but the natural highlights and shadows are still obscuring some detail. I think part of my problem is that I need to reconfigure the backdrop so that I can place the mini deeper into the tent.
  6. 77010 Kobold Troublemakers

    Here are some more Reaper Bones baddies. I made these guys for my Dungeons and Dragons campaign. I'm betting the numbers on the bases already gave that away though Just about everything I make is for gaming so I have to fight off the temptation of putting too much time into each model.
  7. So on facebook in December, a few of us took to doing a daily art challenge for the entire month inspired by Morihalda and her awesomely inspiring dedication to pursuing her art <3 I think Bathory started it and CashWiley started calling it the Morihalda Challenge (if I'm remembering correctly) and my dedication to it was to paint every day for at least 10 minutes. I was able to keep it going for the entire month and once we got into the new year, I decided to keep it going. I don't typically believe in making New Years resolutions, but dedicating myself to painting and/or mini related hobbying for at least 10 minutes every day seemed not only doable but like something that I really wanted to do. I'm passionate about painting and improving my painting and you can't improve without practice and discipline. I have thus painted every day since December 1st and I hope to keep painting every day for as long as possible. The Resolutionary Painting Challenge http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72577-resolutionary-painting-challenge-2017-chatterquestions/was something that I often saw people posting in and about on the forum, but I never thought that I could join in because I wasn't painting as much before and I paint pretty slowly. However, for this year, NomadZeke made the challenges bi-monthly, which I think reduces some pressure on meeting the quota and now that I'm painting more, even though I still paint slowly, I'm more likely to be able to finish a lot more and it gives me something extra to work toward. On top of that, I've always seen the bonus challenges from the RPChallenge and thought that they sounded like a lot of fun and as much as I'm dedicated to practice and discipline, I never ever want to forget that I paint because it's fun. Sometimes I put too much pressure on myself to paint something well and I get all stressed out about it and I just need to let it go and have fun. So finger painting a mini? Yes, please. I knew exactly which figure I wanted to paint for it because I thought that all of the deep recesses would help me to get good contrast. I discovered very quickly that although that was true, it also made it very tricky to get paint into the deep recesses in the first place! So as I always do with Bones figures, I started out with Brown Liner. I had to thin it enough to get it to flow into all of the deep recesses. I should have thinned it more though because what I ended up with was WAY too much paint on the figure - so much that it took a couple of hours for it to dry completely. Once it dried, however, I made sure that I did a better job of controlling my paint consistency so that it would run where I wanted it to, but not all over the place. I did some unintentional wetblending, which turned into intentional wetblending. So much drying time! I think he turned out pretty great, what do y'all think?
  8. 77203: Alastriel

    Ok so at Reapercon, I took a bunch of beginner classes because I figured I needed some good instruction on the basics since I taught myself to paint through tutorials, videos and feedback here on the forum. I loved all of the classes but in Brice Cocanour's Everything I Wish I Knew When I Started Painting, proper blending, highlighting and contrast really clicked for me. He gave us this mini, pre-primed in both black and then white for the lighting and had us choose our own colours and practice on her cloak. I chose MSP Tropical Blue and MSP Spectral Glow. Here's where I was after class (excuse my hastily taken hotel picture): And now here she is after tonight (excuse my terrible lighting): I can see where I need to work on the blending a bit more, but I'm pretty proud of how she's looking. Comments and criticism welcome, as always!
  9. How to make a snow base

    Old man winter is coming soon! In a follow up to the custom base tutorial, I made a video about how I make snow themed bases. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
  10. Made some bases up for my Reaper Bones and got inspired, so I have some basing tutorials lined up and this is the first. Feel free to check it out and let me know what you think. Thanks! EJ
  11. Stone Giant [bones]

    Very quick paintjob, good just for tabletop. I've used some gs to 'blend' the integral base into the round base I'v put it onto. WiP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69574-stone-giants-base/
  12. Stone Giant's base

    I've just modeled some rocks trying to 'blend' thje Stone Giant's base into a 50mm round base I have put it onto. Plan is, after gs is cured, to sand it a bit, add sand to the base (actually, coffee ) then once painted, finish it with some static grass between the rocks. What do you think? Removing the figure entirely from the cast base would had been a better option? Point is I like the rocky base, so I tried a way to keep it trying to make it not looking too much as 'pasted in' ...
  13. Hey guys, I saw a couple of people online converting bird houses from Michael's into dice towers and after having great luck converting one of their cheap model ships into a spelljammer ship, I decided to give it a go. I took the bird house apart and stuck in all of the tower guts. Then I gave it a base paint job. I am thinking of painting some moss or vines onto the tower and also adding a crest of some sort on the front. I thought about adding a flag to the top, but I want to build this to withstand frequent transport as I play at a friend's house. I'd love to have some suggestions to spice it up. I want to use it as a display piece at home but then be able to take it to the table for play.
  14. 77194: Cthulhu

    I spent quite a while on him, I'm not entirely happy with how he turned out. I'm REALLY not happy with the base (first time using mud effects and water effects, wanted to add some more plantlife but it wasn't working out) I screwed up the OSL on the eyes but I didn't want to go back and fix it so he just has really super glowy eyes. And I probably redid the wings a bunch before I was about ready to just tear them off completely. I'm my harshest critic, what do you think?
  15. Anval Thricedamned

    This was the first Bones piece I picked up. Just thought it looked realy cool and fun to paint; it was. -Gunz
  16. Skeleton Giant

    Another commission piece
  17. Cthulu called me

    A commission piece for a friend.
  18. Battlesworn

    Hi everyone, a brief post just to suggest a little, neat ruleset to play with all the Bones minis you've got from the KS. Battlesworn is written by Andrea Sfiligoi, author of Song of Blades and Heroes. Like SBH, it is a generic fantasy ruleset you can play with any miniature you have, its main mechanic is based on secret bidding. Also, it fits perfectly with Reaper Bones (someone else already found it). You can get it for a small price at Ganesha website: http://www.ganeshagames.net/ I'm not associated in any way to Andrea or Ganesha, just love his games =)
  19. Finally got back to painting some of my Reaper Bones. In this tutorial, I'm painting the Bones Zombies for dipping, and doing a comparison between Army Painter strong tint and Minwax Polyshade. Muhuahahahahahaaa!
  20. I had the pleasure of opening a big box from Reaper a couple days ago and did an inventory after assembling Kaladrax, (I couldn't resist putting that beast together). Lots and lots of painting in my future!!
  21. Paheej's Mini Backlog

    Hi all, Trying to get my current backlog I brought with me to NY painted down so that I am ready for the Bones stuff incoming sometime in June I expect. First up Barrow Wights! Manufacturer: Games-Workshop System: Lord of the Rings Scale: 25mm
  22. I've painted a few of these Bones figs over the last couple months and decided to make some how-to-paint videos. This one is mainly about prep-work, and some of the paintlines and primers I use. Let me know what you think? ~Jeff~ Edit: Weird.. I recorded this in 720p, but apparently YouTube busted it down to 480p. Ah well.
  23. Reaper Bones Purple Worm

    Just made a short video of this Purple Worm that I painted up using mostly oil based paints. Let me know what you think.
  24. 77012-Gnoll Warrior

    Got a new job in a cardiovascular ICU and I just haven't had the time to paint like I was the past few months. He had a light coat of white primer b/c I use Vallejo paints, which are not optimized for Bones minis. As with other Bones minis I've painted, I noticed zero difference between painting the Bones figure and painting a metal figure.
  25. Reaper Bones Skeleton.

    So I finally got a big order of Reaper Bones in and started in on the Skeleton. I really enjoyed painting this guy. I leard a lot from washing and dry brushing him. My thanks go out to all the advice I received from you all here, and to a Marc Messenger on the RVR miniature painting group on Face book for guiding me through the process.
