  1. 77008 Garrick the Bold as Sir Figmentius

    A while back I figured that no collection was really complete without a Sir Forscale and I thought I'd paint him in the colors of Figmentius. Eventually I'll do one for all the houses. I was pleasantly surprised how well the freehand on the Unicorn turned out. Tonight is also the first time using my new camera, and the photos turned out quite well after I figured out what a Macro was.
  2. Statue Forscale

    I was inspired by how the paint combination on the Copper head of my Ma'al Drakar turned out, so I thought it would be fun to turn a mini into a bronze/copper statue! Given that I still didn't have a fully painted Sir Forscale (@Reaperbryan owns all 3 of the ones I've painted to date), I decided it was high time I had one of my own. Those two things resulted in this: I removed him from his broccoli base and glued him onto a 20mm Reaper base, so he'd have a pedestal sort of thing to stand on. He was very quick to paint up, just Green Liner, Copper Verdigris, a light Turquoise Ink wash, then careful drybrushing of Coppery Orange. I had fun thinking about what the wear patterns on a regular statue would be, hence why sections of his base and his right foot are so much shinier than the rest. Because given any flat surface, people are going to sit on it to rest or take pictures, and prominent areas are usually kept shined from people rubbing them. And here's a couple of pics just for fun, since Ma'al is still hanging out on my desk: Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  3. 77008 - Garrick the Bold

    Nothing fancy, just practicing/getting back into the swing of painting.
  4. My inaugural Bones 3 paint, the Iron Golem (menacing Sir Forscale that I got from either a paint-and-take at PAX or a learn-to-paint kit, can't remember which). I'm not sure it really comes out in the picture, but I started with black/gray zenithal priming layers, airbrushed a not-too-thick layer of a bright metallic over it, dark wash, and then heavily shaded it with pure black glazes (there's supposed to be some left/right shading with the glazes, but it doesn't show well in the pictures I don't think). Then touched all the gouges with the metallic again, and painted the optics and vents with red and orange, on the assumption that iron golems are powered by some kind of eldritch furnace internally. (Sir Forscale was splashed with whatever bright primary color was close at hand, like you do when you're a complete noob at a paint-and-take, and I hope I got the right SKU from the list that came with my shipment.)
  5. 77008 Reaper Bones Garrick The Bold

    Hi All, I thought I'd give this popular little guy a quick lick of paint. Comments are always welcome, Thanks for looking!
  6. This was part of ReaperBryan's Sir Forscale Painting Competition... Froggy had mentioned a raygun in the thread, and I decided to do a retro-future conversion with a rocketpack, raygun and energy shield. I also decided after a bit of thought that I'd loosely base the design on the classic depiction of DC Comics' Adam Strange... The raygun is actually just the slightly modified stub of his sword's guard and handle with a pin in the end. For the shield, I sculpted a rectangular mount (the "shield generator") on his bracer, intending to have a clear blue-tinted shield so it would show through. But after glueing three layers of blister plastic together and cutting out the shield, an attempt to hit it with some sealer as a primer coat ended up frosting the damn thing... So I painted an opaque "glass" pattern on the shield instead. The gold boss in the middle of the shield is meant to be the thing that generates it, and is the pin that holds the shield onto the arm. The rocketpack is a tiny brass tube, and the cone on the tank, the cones on the rockets and the frame are all hand-sculpted. The two rockets themselves are a pair of plastic model pieces from a 1:700 USS Mount Whitney LLC-20 that I had lying around... I had planned on adding a white stripe and design on the helmet like the picture of Adam Strange, but then concluded that with all the trouble I'd had highlighting the red that it wouldn't be worth it to try that level of freehand because I'd never get the highlighting right on the red after having to go back and forth making the line straight and even... EDIT TO ADD: There's a post further down the thread where I show some WIP pics of how much of the figure was reconstructed or built from scratch...
  7. Sir Forscale x2!

    I painted up two Sirs Forscale for ReaperBryan's competition: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69934-sir-forscale-painting-competition/ The first one was Sir Forscale the Shiny, Captain of the Papal Guard! (the official colors of the Papal Guard are dark green and gold, as per SpacePope Bryan) WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/70343-sir-forscale-the-shiny-wip/ I had some fun messing around with all of the camera settings on my phone, and figured out how to set the focus manually. The result is that the pictures came out sharper than I've ever managed before! The downside, though, is that every tiny flaw is magnified; the metallic paint does NOT look that rough in person, lol. Also, the gloss sealer I put on the shield is hiding the lovely blending I did on it. Ah well. It's visible in my WIP thread at least. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  8. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FF5C04CB-VQ I did it! Finally, my first Show Off thread ever for something that wasn't just for my personal enjoyment! And did I ever pick a big project to do it with. This one had stretched my meager skills to the limit, but I managed to finally complete it. WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/70091-77008-sir-hue-forscale-first-knight-of-polychromus-wippic-heavy/ From deep with the arcane workgrounds of Castle Polychromatic was forged Sir Hue ForScale, First Knight of Polychromus, Guardian of the Halls of Spectra, Measurer of Magniftints, Watcher of the Seen and Unseen. A construct specially created to protect the Papal Realms from eldritch horrors, he is the shepherd of Colours Out of Space. You could say that he's their................designated drover. To you, my friends, I unveil my creation!: His shield is adorned with the Grinning Lizard, crest of Pezler the Polychromatic, representing him no matter where he goes ( and to advertise the Grinning Lizard Tavern; Tuesdays are half off Polychromatic Fizzys!). Below that to represent the SpacePope he serves is the Sacred Hat, whose very presence has the power to make people intone the mystical words, "Hey, Bryan's here!" Protected by the Tabard of the Tumbling Cosmos, he goes out in search of threats to the integrity of the spectrum, without which all paint would have no colour, making our hobby pretty darn dull. He smites foes with a sword created from the carapace of the Giant Iridescent Killer Rainbow Beetle (Arcus pluvius popsiclus), bringing new colour to the villains of the realms ( the colour he usually makes them is 'dead'). His eyes watch over the spectra both seen and unseen, keeping you all safe from those who would rob your paints of all colour( or just rob your paints; I'm looking at you, Buglips). To enhance his powers, he has been suffused with the essences of several forumites to give him their strengths: the purple boots of OneBoot, for her stompy powers against the tiny eldritch horrors (but how can they be two boots when her name is Oneboot, you ask? OneBoot2=OneBoot. Simple polychromathemagics.); Guindyloo Blurple among the speckles for her face-huggy abilities; tangerine for Buglips, Emperor of Mooning, he who actually bleeds paint; Blood for the Blood God paint on the sword gems for ub3r_n3rd, he who helps bring the smackdown; And the Grinning Lizard, who was created long ago from modifying a sketch of a frog, which seems appropriate for Froggy the Great. I had a blast creating this figure for the contest, and it certainly put my meager skills to the test. I have enjoyed a year on the forums, and I want to thank everyone who encouraged me to keep doing this. I'm afraid I couldn't get the last updates for my WIP, since I wanted to make sure that I finished in time. There's a lot of different paints added since the last update, but I don't think it's worth mentioning them unless someone asks. I did, however, add eyes for him using a touch of interference blue in each socket. I think that Sir Hue is the only Forscale that actually has eyes. PM and email has been sent to ReaperBryan, so it's all good now. Will do some touching up here and there before he gets shipped out, but he will join his brethren soon enough. The Sir Hue will remain vigilant over you all, to keep your tones, tints and shades safe. He is always watching.............
  9. So here is my second Sir ForScale, representing House Tabletop... He will be going to Texas to meet the Great Kaiju soon... Thanks for looking!!!! George WiP here
  10. I've finally decided to get my boot in gear and paint up my submission to Reaperbryan's Sir Forscale competition: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69934-sir-forscale-painting-competition/ I'll be painting him up in the traditional Papal Guard colors of dark green and gold, using mostly metallics because SHINY. First set of pictures! EDIT: I can't get my pictures to work; apparently, Google Photos killed Picasa web albums for good sometime earlier this week. Have this picture of a cat instead while I try to get it figured out. EDIT EDIT: I've found a truly grotesque workaround for now, which I've used for these first two pics. Further pictures in this thread will have to wait until I work out something better. His tabard and glove are all Reaper paints, starting with Rich Green and highlighting through various combinations of Rich Green, Christmas Wreath, Grass Green and Clear Green, in that order. Before the final Clear Green highlight, I did a Grass Green wash to tie it all together. I may do one final highlight to really make it look nice, but it's decent as-is. The gold edging is P3 Solid Gold, and it is SO SHINY YOU GUYS HAVE NO IDEA. I mean, uh, hey look at that awesome NMM I totally did. Yeah. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  11. They're finally done, my two Sir Forscale entries. First one: Sir Justin For$ale. He's in it for the money. Second one: Sir Justin Forscale, Grand Surveyor, complete with reflective strip safety tabard, a 3 inch accurate yard stick (½ in precision, who needs Bryangles?) and plumb line.
  12. 77008 Sir Forscale (modified)

    Sir Forscale of House Procrastius, knight the fourth, shielding himself with a for scale, armed with a ruler for scale. I've never actually used greenstuff before (and yes I know he's on his base, the sealer wasn't completely dry at this point, so base-less pics after) From bottom of his foot to top of the ruler is actually the height of the sword tip (maybe off by a fraction of a mm)
  13. For once I think this mini looks better on camera. It is more blue in person. Still I am pretty happy with it. All the "black" bits are nmm. It gets better each try
  14. Here are my two entries for the Sir Forscale competition. I wasn't going to make a show off post for them, but since we're trying to cut out chatter in that thread, I thought if people wanted to give any feedback (C&C is always very welcome!) that this would be the best place for people to do that. This was my first time painting the dreaded colour black...I think I was relatively successful, at least in the back. I found the front part of the cloth on him a bit difficult to pick out where highlights should be. My first one is, naturally xenomorph inspired.... Sir Xenoscale? And the second one is Blurple and has a flower crown because, why not? Sir ForBlurple? The flowers are made out of Sculpey. Let me know if you want to know any paints that I used. C&C always very welcome!
  15. Sir Forscale ala Guildy

    I'm pretty happy with the white, less so with his emblem on his chest. I don't know if it's my eyes or the bones but I couldn't get clean lines on it no matter how I tried sigh. Anyway, it was fun to do bright metals for once, instead of rusty (as per my usual worn armour/Skaven stolen goods type!) So he looks like he's a shiny new adventurer!
  16. I said.... Posted Yesterday, 09:59 AM And of course, since Morihalda is going to paint up the House Procrastius Version, I decided that House Tabletop needs one as well.... (Glad I ordered 2 of them!) So here he is after the emblem was sculpted on the shield... Much easier than sculpting hands! Need to touch up the grey liner, then give him a coat of white primer tomorrow.... George
  17. Sir Scoville Forscale (Garrick the Bold)

    Awright. With a little gloss on his pepper and a touch here and there on his armor. The peppers on the shield were HD Garnet Red, Gilded Yellow and Core fresh Blood, in no particular order. The big pepper is mostly Garnet Red and Fresh Blood. That little blush of dark is ... I think Nightshade Purple with a little Peacock Green over it. Armor and shield border is all metallic; I'm liking Scorched Metal as a bronze (greaves, pauldrons, guantlets and helm), and I'm really quite thrilled with the way it came out. I had fun with the painting and modifications on this; the pepper was particularly fun to build. However simple, it was just challenging enough that I feel like I really did something. I got it SHINY. I am pleased. ^^;
  18. I've taken Reaper's 77373: Cuth Wolfson, Barbarian and merged his arms and helm with the body of 77008: Garrick the Bold along with a metal axe from one of Reaper's weapons packs to create this monstrous warrior of Great Renown! This is now Sir Garrick Wolfson the Mighty-Thewed! WiP here - http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/70094-sir-garrick-wolfson-an-ub3r-wip/ This is going to be in Bryan's hands in a few days! C&C are welcomed and appreciated
  19. Entered this into the Sir Forscale contest. I'm sad to see him go, but its for the greater good.
  20. So... been keeping this secret but bah... join my madness!! Link to the contest So, I ordered my Garrick the Bold and boiled and straightened and froze and boiled and straightened and froze and boiled and straightened and froze and gave up straightening the sword and cut it off. WHACK! And... what to do... what to do... THAT'S IT! *rummage* *rummage* *rummage* Found it! Grab snippers. *snip!* And thus it begins... Then more putty, and after the okay by ReaperBryan, expansion of the base for stability. Presenting: Sir *BONK!*Scale! Tonight priming will be done. Will need to use two kinds because of the various materials. Special thanks to Froggy for his inspiration. A gift from him years ago.
  21. ReaperBryan is a meanie. Here I was with a Garrick the Bold Figure that I was going to paint up as Sir Forscale, all safely tucked away until I thought I had the talent to replicate such a feat. And then He comes around with a painting competition for that exact figure, forcing my hand. Forced, I say! I have never done so much planning for a colour scheme in my life, I hope to do it justice and I've been taking notes from those who have gone before me. And so begins the creation of Sir Hue Forscale, First Knight of Polychromus, Sentinel of Spectra, Measurer of Magnifitints. Here goes nothing! All pictures taken will be from my new phone, I hope it does a better job than from my iPad mini: Alright, looking crisp, though the whites are a little too bright. I used Reaper Brown Liner to coat the entire thing, then put on Reaper Pure black to cover it. I though I had diluted the black too much, but then I realized that it's a really concentrated paint, so it all turned out pretty good. ..............and now I found some mould lines. Alright, work on those first, and then some speckling is in order.
  22. Hi all, I finally have a functional camera (on a phone, but still), So Im going to open the vaults on my collection over the next few days and share some things that have not seen the light of day. I figured Id start with the essential Sir Forscale! I've been meaning to get a copy for years, so when I saw he was available at the Paizocon paint-and-take he was the natural choice. I had a blast meeting some forum folks in person and shaking hands with the reaper con crew. I finished most of this mini that day, and the following night I fashioned up a proper base and swapped the bones sword for a nice blade from one of the weapon packs. I'm not exactly breaking new ground here, but I'm sure Ill remember this speedpaint fondly for years. Now I have a proper Sir Forscale for future projects!
  23. Started yesterday to make a beholder. Wanted to make step-by-step photos, but couldn't find the phone. Which was all the time in my pant pocket. :-) (Edit: Here are Step-By-Step pictures. Post1 and Post2) It is better as I hoped for. If it is completed, I plan to do 2 more, hopefully this time with step-by-step photos. Also doing a really big one with more than 10 eye-stalks. Also a young version with less eye-stalks. I like the idea that it get more an more while getting older. For the young version I need a nude female goblin. (NUDE CONTENT!!!) If someone knows a cool miniature version, post it please! :-) It should not be taller than a dwarf. So here first pictures. Looks like a electrocuted beholder. :-)
  24. Adding to the eternal march of the Giants, my first completed pieces from the "Blood Rage" Kickstarter are the big guys. First we have the Frost Giant: A rather bestial Fire Giant, who apparently got the short end of the sealant on his crown...to be fixed, as I only noticed now: The Mountain Giant (my personal favorite and one of the reasons I had to back it, as a Kickstarter exclusive) The slightly less giant Troll: And some group shots: And one with Sir Forscale, for scale:
  25. So I finished my Sir Forscale He's been quite fun to paint because he doesn't have eyes, which just stress me out... And as I'm terribly grungy at times, I decided to make my dear little knight here nice and grotty too. My extremely makeshift backdrop is still going strong too =P He's painted with the following: GW's Citadel -Khorne Red -White Scar -Leadbelcher -Nuln Oil -Seraphim Sepia -Blood for the Blood God -Auric Armour -Runelord Brass and P3 -Thamar Black -Umbral Umber -Bloodtracker Brown -Cold Steel So eee =] I will make another backdrop at some point, or print some, either way, but for the time being, I've only got my dark angsty homemade one. This is also the first time I've tried to really freehand anything - ie, the quadrants on his tabard - so while he's not perfect, I'm quite pleased with how he's turned out. His sword's got a bit of a quirk in it, despite several attempts at boiling him, but what do, it doesn't bother me too much.
