  1. Alright, ReaperCon is just around the corner and I really need to get cracking on my entires. I already have a thread up for my planned Painter's entries and I will be doing separate ones for my Open and Diorama entries. So first off here is my Open entry, the Bones version of Anirion: Oh, wait that's not right ... Much better This conversion came to be due to one of the critiques I received last year and that was to up the difficulty of my conversions. So first thing I did was scan Reaper's site and pick out minis that would be a good base for conversions. I got a pretty good list but I really got stuck on Anirion and turning him into a Jedi. This is the result. Here is the conversion break down: -Reshaped hood and sleeves -Smoothed out cloak to remove border -Removed staff and bag? -Repositioned arms -Added light saber out of styrene and metal piece Now on to paint and basing. Here are some side by side comparisons.
  2. Sneak peak at my "next" project. Custom base that I've been playing with (one of two). I made this from an old medicine jar, dollhouse crown molding (cast into a flexible piece), some strip styrene, balsafoam, smooth cast 300, alumalite quickset, and an old ring. I think that's it. Oh, and some Magic-Sculpt (two part clay) and let's not forget the tree bark. Still some clean up to do and more Magic-Sculpt/sculpting to bring the top (ground) piece together with the mountain.
  3. 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.
  4. Ahoi, I spent some time researching yew trees and owls the last weeks and created an old gnarly yew tree that can be removed from its base to place miniatures inside the hollow trunk and also has magnetized branches for easier transport. If you are interested how to make one yourself check out the detailed tutorial with many pictures on Dagger and Brush: Through a Forest, Darkly - How to Make an Ancient Yew Tree for 28mm Part I As you can see, Anirion is adventuring again:
  5. 77068: Anirion, Wood Elf Wizard

    So here is my take on Anirion, Wood Elf Wizard from the Vampire set from the first Kickstarter. I will be the first to admit that I might have gone a little crazy with the GW Agarax Earthshade wash on the robe (Especially on the back, you can see it just clumped and got goopy), but this was my first foray back into painting in about a year, and was kind of rushing it to get him finished for play. I know he doesn't look much like a Wood Elf, but that's because the player in my Campaign who I painted this for is quite fond of Fire Spells, so I used alot of hot colours, and then used the ice blue to sort of oppose the colour scheme and add some contrast. Doing the yellow line was also my first attempt at free hand painting. Like... Ever. I think he turned out a-okay for table top quality. Tell me what you think!
  6. So I wanted to paint up an evil cult after seeing the excellent venom cult by Maglok in this thread http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/49517-the-venom-cult-lots-of-pics/?hl=cult I decided to go with a more stereotypical black robe cult look for a more generic bad guy look. First up, the 3 evil Acolytes from Otherworld Miniatures, I love these guys, they have so much character. Then I needed to expand the evil band, so Bones Anirion (77068) got drafted: And Satheras (Bones 77040). By popular demand from the Scary Autumn contest, here is how I did the staff Crystal: Pretty sure the main color was Winter Blue (Reaper HD 29817) with Mint Green (Reaper MSP 9263) and Pure White (Reaper MSP 9039). The top crystal facets got the darkest color, the middle facets got a mix of blue and mint green, and then the bottom facets and the crystal edges got a lighter mix of blue, green and white. Then to finish it off the top facets each got a tiny white dot. Even though I have a pint notebook next to my work area, I wold rather paint than write, so this is from memory. The Herald of Aglanda also joined, she/he got a pointier cowl with some green stuff: And the last member of the cult is a Lance and Laser monk from long ago: Group shots are always fun!
  7. Elves

    I'm not a big fan of elves, and I have very few (non-dark) elves in my collection. I picked these elves up several months ago (around January) so my friends without minis of their own could assemble elven warbands in Song of Blades and Heroes. Now they are finally painted. I kind of imagine these guys as an elven adventuring band in an elven land, You've got your fighter leader (Arthrand), a ranger/rogue (Nienna), requisite wizard (Anirion) and token demi-human (Drys), who also serves as Team Cleric (or, in this case, Team Druid). I get the sense that these guys would do okay in a dungeon, but would completely wreck a wilderness adventure. Also, I'm not prone to tooting my own horn, but I really feel with this set I've achieved two new personal bests. I think these guys represent some of the finest painting I've done yet, and a vast improvement in my digital photography skills. 14553: Arthrand Nightblade, Wood Elf Sergeant 02909: Nienna, Elf Ranger 03491: Anirion, Wood Elf Wizard 14479: Drys, Elven Dryad
