  1. Finished these three from my first wip post so I'm milking them for another post here in show off. I'd love to hear your thoughts. First as a group: cow: Side a (frontish?) B-side Pig goat close up of goat face b-side group shot Thanks for looking! WIP can be found here:
  2. *** Rise Creatures of Chaos !!!!*** *** It's time for Mankind to fall !!!*** A while ago I purchased this one through the Bay of Evil. It is supposed to be the Forged Monkey's bust. I have some doubts though. It was shown as an original,but it came without the original packing. Also I had to remove a lot of flash and needed heavy greenstuffing.. Could be a knock off. However I will paint it.. Started prepping.
  3. Ive said it before, I'll say it again: I like painting animals. when I found Babu I couldn't resist the cuteness.
  4. I got the critters as an addon to the DSM kickstarter recently. The first thing I am painting is this guy, a musk ox warrior. He's big, so priming took a while. And I am using a crummy brush for base coating all this fur because it is a brush mangler until I get to the nitpicky stuff. I'm trying to make the small bit of chainmail 1) NMM to see if I can do it and 2) slightly tarnished. I don't think thia guy is good at cleaning. Armor color themes I am thinking dark red primarily, with black, blue, and green accents. I was looking up eskimo art for the sake of doing his belt-thing justice, and those seem like reasonable colors to go with. Thanks to the CMPA for the poster tack and the jar idea - had to find a big jar for him!
  5. These are a couple of the animal companion sets that I painted for one of my players (minus the spider which I have not finished yet). I didn't want to paint the cat like a plain panther and I decided to use an ocelot as inspiration. My favorite is the little wolverine guy even though the photos make the river rocks look like pastel M&M's lol. My usual background got ruined so I have to make do until I get a new one printed or buy a fancy one. The bear looks better in hand and I used blacks and browns in his fur so he doesn't look so flat as he does in the photos. I am not happy with the fake snow and how it turned out. It looked really good when I put it on but not so good once the glue dried. I guess next time I will try baking soda and see how that works out. These are for gaming though so baking soda wouldn't have been the best choice probably. Anyway, here they are! C&C welcome.
  6. Had a little paint sesh with the elder digit today. Can you guess which I did and which was the ten year old's?
  7. Only had about 45 minutes to paint tonight so I decided to finish the Warg I'd linered yesterday. So another speed paint, but I'm pretty happy with the result. Was thinking of gmork from Neverending Story while painting it.
  8. I bought a couple of the new Wizkids figures from my FLGS a week or two ago. They had the whole range, but I wasn't too terribly interested in most of the humanoid figures. The monsters were another story; I got this killer kitty cat and the Griffon. Something about this figure really grabbed me; it jumped straight to the #1 spot on my painting queue. This was a very fast figure to paint; my usual tabletop standard took me about 2 hours. I hope you like it .
  9. Continuing the WIP from http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64819-lexomatics-fall-2015-wip I'll be working on my shelf of shame minis, trying some bones 2 anhurians, some outstanding hearthstone minis, and maybe some more animals and skeletons, and ice walls and slimes. Also some zombicide crows (as lots of different birds
  10. This week I painted the Bear figure from the Bones II Original Figures set. He is part of the Animal Companions set in the Reaper store. I chose to paint it up like a Black Bear and base it for Frostgrave. Nothing fancy; just a quick paint for game use. C & C welcome.
  11. This was a thing I did for my girlfriend for Christmas. She always refer to herself as a sloth because she likes to sleep, and is a fan of Sid from Ice Age. :P The base is far to big to fit in my photo-case, though:
  12. This is Jason Wiebe's Dire Bear sculpt. Really like this figure. I've posted a short video tutorial for the painting of this figure here: http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca/2014/11/video-tutorial-painting-reapers-dire.html Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  13. Lets play a game! I will post a picture of an animal miniature I have painted. Then, someone posts a pic of an animal mini they have painted. I will then follow with an animal mini, and so on. Real animals only, extant or extinct. Most of mine are speedpaints, so grab a mini and join in! At the edge of the woods your party sees.....a red fox! Reaper Miniatures fox familiar on 25mm base.
  14. I got the Reaper Bones Animal Companion set (sku 77216)... and decided to paint them all at the same time. All I've done so far is put on the base coat, and the color layer. I did a little shading, but haven't done any highlights yet. Nor have I painted the bases (at all). Any thoughts or advice before I highlight them and do their bases?
  15. I must say, the small size of these models (especially the smaller of them) made this a nice challenge. I did my best to find reference photos of real animals to use as a basis for painting them, which was a big help. I have two sets of each of these, and with the exception of the wolf, wolverine, and bat, I painted the duplicates differently, to provide more variety. Here are pictures of the Animal Familiars: Bat, Crow, Red Fox, Weasel, and a 'black' cat. Bat, hawk, grey fox, ferret, and a brown-striped tabby cat. And here are pictures of the Animal Companions: Snow leopard, vulture, wolverine, wolf, brown bear. Black panther, falcon, wolverine, wolf, black bear.
  16. This is one of the six farm animals in the Fenryll set called Farm Animals ANI-02. I think his name is Ugly... Not happy with the sculpt or the paint job, but it is another one done! Edited for spelling.
  17. Long time ago I buid me a Barbarian Army with animal allies. Here is the unit filler from my horde. And the regiment. The Reaper Dire Bear and a Fenris Wolf from Gamezone. I know it seems like the Barbarians have no shadow. This is due to the camera, In real life they where washed with flesh wash. I sold the army years ago. So can't take new pics.
  18. Another regiment from the Horde From The North. This time with a Hero on a snow leopard. Again early work. IRL better shadows, bad camera work. Another repost of my work, hope I don't bore you all.
  19. Here's a quick one I did. Randomly went into the box of Bones (KS I) and pulled these out. Pretty simple paint job. First off, 9064 Brown Liner as both primer and base color. Next, 913 Forest Green, 9134 Clotted Red, 9050 Antique Gold, 9126 Gunmetal Blue, and 9280 Nightmare Black were all used to paint individual beetles. Afterwards, I probably would have stuck with just the red and gold. Those looked the best on the base color.
  20. I am basing this one on a Lowland Copperhead... a very colorful neat looking snake.
  21. I finally got back to work, this weekend, on some minis. These I started and finished in the last few days. Jason Wiebe's Killer Frogs, from Reaper. Purchased, to be honest, solely because they were one of two Reaper products the FLGS carried, heh. Hoping they'll restock. But they inspired me a bit and will be making an appearance in the PF game I'm running. Anywho, I enjoyed painting them. I did pretty much everything with GW washes aside from some highlighting with a yellow on each and the black slits for their eyes. Oh, and the bases I washed with Reaper's brown wash. Was unsure how exactly to approach the leaper's support piece so aimed for simple. Tried different colors on them--got a little hypno-toad with one, lol. But I'm really pleased with them, so hope you enjoy them, too. I'm (of necessity) trying to figure out some better photography, also, so apologies for some oddness on that front. Thanks for looking! Any input or advice or anything you have, about anything, is most welcome.
  22. So, I should explain a bit. My current campaign of D&D 4E has required me obtaining and painting multiple Medium sized Bear like minis. Said game has an Elven Sentinel Druid with a Bear Animal Companion that is also a Werebear! Since the game is rapidly approaching the level that Were-Bears can become a Hybrid form, I've had to work on finishing those minis. So without further ado, I present Peevo the Wonderbear and Dara Silverleaf's bear and Hybrid Forms! Peevo the Wonderbear Dara's Bear Form Dara's Hybrid Form Peevo has had a Badly made Fez with Tassle added to the original mini. Hybrid Dara originally had a weird Shovel-Battleaxe-thing. Chopped off the ends of those, added a brass stick, Glued a small green bead to the end of that and used some Procreate to add the "braided" root-like stuff. These are also the first minis I've painted since I got Prescription Magnifying eyeglasses. They have helped immensely! GF
  23. Growing up in the 80's, I was a Gamer before I even started Kindergarden. Playing my Atari 2600 and my Uncle's Game Systems, I became an advid Gamer early on. One of those cherished early Memories is Playing Donkey Kong at my Uncle's house. Fast forward about 3 decades, I've stayed a fan of the classic Video Games and Retro Video Games like them. But I've added a few new interests to my Life, Role Playing Games and Miniature games. Also, I've become a rather decent Miniature Painter over the last decade. And now I can mix all of those Interests into one project...this one! So, a little bit about the Mini in Question. Once a standard DDM Dire Ape, it was modified for me by Benoit of the Roving Band of Misfits Blog with help from the Guys at Going Last Blog and Podcast. I won a contest done by Benoit's Blog and gave him the Mini at GenCon 2011 just before the FourthCore Team Deathmatch. I got it back about 5-6 Months later fully modified. It is Awesome and I knew I needed a bit more skill to give Painting it a try. Well, that time is NOW! All he has so far is Primer and a Base Coat. But I am determined to do my best. Wish me luck:) He be Spoilered for those with Questionable Inter-Webs quality.
  24. Here is Starmare the Unicorn. It was my entry in the Summer of Monsters painting contest. This model was sculpted by Sandra Garrity. C&C are welcome!
  25. This is my Sabertooth Tiger sculpted by Jason Wiebe.
