  1. I decided to get this and paint it for my Mom for Christmas. Arrived like this: Airbrush Primer: Base coated dark green, realized tortoises don't have green shells so went over the shell with sequential layers of Ochre/Burnt Umber mix, followed by ochre several times. Drybrushed dark blue over the skin. Washed the shell with burnt umber, washed just the crevices with a thin black wash. Highlighted the shell with mid yellow, did some speckling of red green and blue on the head and neck. AND then we run into problems, gotta do the eyes. So I do that... And we got one ridiculous looking, Stoned of his gourd tortoise. Please help!
  2. Grenadier lizard/dragon dog...

    I'm not entirely sure what this is supposed to be; I got it in a group of figures that I bought on Ebay. I know it's by Grenadier, and that's it. I painted this up as part of my Morihalda challenge; to a (hopefully) decent tabletop standard. Those eyes were tons of fun.
  3. 03277: Hyena Pack (2)

    These are the two hyenas from Jason Wiebe's 03277: Hyena Pack (2). I painted them up as spotted hyenas, as that is what they most look like. I find I am enjoying painting realistic mammals because it gives a lot of opportunity for play with a fairly limited palette. (See, for example, how I recently painted wolves and wolves and wolves, and what I learned from doing it.) There is no WIP thread. I have a photo book of Zimbabwe, so I played a little bit with backgrounds.
  4. These gorgeous wolves (Thunderbolt Mountain 8560) are the nicest giant wolf sculpts I have ever seen. They are by the legendary Tom Meier. IMPORTANT: TOM MEIER IS CLOSING HIS THUNDERBOLT MOUNTAIN STORE DEC. 25 OF THIS YEAR, SO IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, GO THERE NOW! They are pretty big. I mounted them on 1.5" fender washers for extra stability. Tom Meier sells optional goblin riders for them. WIP thread with extensive color notes, painting details, and comparison to other wolf figures here.
  5. I had these in an RAFM blister and as I recall their bases said RAFM (I glued them to 1.5-inch fender washers for stability). I haven't been able to identify them. They look like the sorts of giant wolves that are ridden by goblins. I am not sure where they came from. Well, apart from RAFM, obviously. They are pretty big. Here's a size comparison with the RAFM one on the far right: Left to right these are: a wolf from Reaper 02830; a wolf from Reaper 77176; Reaper 03682 Willow Greenivy; a giant wolf from Thunderbolt Mountain 8560; and an RAFM mystery wolf. I painted them as several different types of wolf, one with a snow base and two with grassy bases, for multiple uses. Their bases are 1.5". Extensive WIP with lots of color mixing and technique notes here.
  6. Babu, Baby Elephant #1410

    Ive said it before, I'll say it again: I like painting animals. when I found Babu I couldn't resist the cuteness.
  7. 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!
  8. 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.
  9. Bear and cat family paint time (77216)

    Had a little paint sesh with the elder digit today. Can you guess which I did and which was the ten year old's?
  10. Warg 77202

    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.
  11. Animal companions: cow, pig, goat 03719

    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:
  12. Wizkids Displacer Beast

    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 .
  13. *** 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.
  14. Black Bear (77216) (Bones)

    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.
  15. 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:
  16. 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
  17. (14452) Dire Bear

    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
  18. Animal Group (wip)

    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?
  19. 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.
  20. Farm Dog from Fenryll Miniatures

    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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 77130 Beetle Swarm (Bones)

    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.
  24. Show me your.....animals!

    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.
  25. 03676: Giant Snake

    I am basing this one on a Lowland Copperhead... a very colorful neat looking snake.
