  1. Hi all, after much lurking I've decided to post some of my minis I technically posted once before but I just realized looking at the old post that it was over a year ago! I'm really going to have to pick up my painting rate given that another bones pledge is about to be delivered! So I can definitely tell I like painting the bad guys better than the PC characters, probably due to spending too much time DMing. Anyway, here's some recent ones I painted. As always feedback is appreciated! First a couple beastmen from the Warlord line: How about a golem and some undead as tomb guardians? I diced up a skeleton into the base of the bone fiend too. You can kind of see the boot. I have painted some character figures as well recently. Here's a few Elves with an Halfling. I need to work on my faces more though. Humanoid faces are so much flatter than monsters'. Anyone have any tips for varying humanoid flesh or adding details to faces that that sculp might not define well? Thanks! Much appreciated!
  2. In the cold wastes of the North, the followers of the gods of Chaos gather in their thousands. Hordes of barbaric marauders and armor-clad warriors pour forth from the bleak wastelands to wage war against the soft-bellied wastrels who inhabit the rich lands of the south. Daemonic legions advance with them, proof that the Northmen truly are the favored of the gods. ---taken from the Hordes of Chaos army book by Games Workshop. I've always really liked the aesthetic of GW's old Realm of Chaos range of figures ever since I first found some for sale in an old, off the beaten path (and sadly out of business now) hobby shop way back in my youth. I've been collecting them off and on through the years. (I wish I'd bought more of them when I was younger, they're all OOP and hard to come by now.) I've painted a few of them here and there, but now the time has come for me to start painting them in earnest as a cohesive ( relatively speaking; this is Chaos we're talking about here ) group. I might possibly game with them, which would be nice, but rule of cool is going to outweigh any possible gaming considerations in the assembly/painting of this army. I've got a pretty large collection of old school GW/Marauder/Citadel chaos figures (pics below), but I'm also going to be using figures by other manufacturers (including Reaper) that I think look cool and fit the feel of the army. This is going to be a fairly long running project; I've got A LOT of dudes to paint. I hope you see something that sparks your interest and decide to follow along. I have a few units that I've already finished and posted previously; a unit of Chaos Knights of Khorne: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59177-gw-chaos-knights-of-khorne/?hl=%2Bkhorne+%2Bknights A unit of Chaos warriors of Nurgle: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59534-gw-chaos-warriors-of-nurgle/?hl=%2Bnurgle+%2Bwarriors And a few single figures: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65997-chronopia-elven-axeman/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66394-77065-norgol-irongrave-knight/ And here's (some of) what I'm working with: I also have at least that many Beastmen that I haven't found/unburied yet, and some daemons as well. If you noticed some of the newer plastic Chaos Warriors at the top of some of the pictures don't expect to see very many of them in here; I don't like 'em. The detail is beautiful on them, but they're a little too static and mono-pose for my liking. The older stuff has more character in my opinion.
  3. I need help sorting out some minis to use use in the Warlord tournament at ReaperCon. I just know that in my mountain of unpainted lead there is at least one Warlord army. I know I will need to use some proxy models and that those need to be other Reaper Minis. The problem is in some cases I am no longer certain whether some of these guys are a Reaper model or OMM. I could use some help with identification of the minis in the pics that follow: The army I have the most (authentic Warlord) figs for is Reven. Some of the winged guys above are candidates to proxy as harpies. Is that a Reaper minotaur? I am pretty sure the ogre is one of Reaper's. I am hoping the first three are Reaper and not GW beastmen. The rest of these are candidates to proxy as either bugbears or beastmen. Suggestions for which of the above could be proxied for what and/or model numbers would be very helpful. Also, definitive info that mini-X came from non-Reaper source-Y would be just as good.
  4. These guys are a set of Beastmen from Games Workshops Silver Tower game. Eventually I want to put them together with the Acolytes from the same game. to make a little band of Cultists. Sword Beastman:- Axe Beastman:- Pointy Things Beastman:- Apart from zooming in way too much on that third Beastman, and needing to work on my gem painting technique, I think they look pretty good. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  5. As part of my "Clearing the Painting Desk" push that I've been on for the past few months, I'm also including "Renovations" as valid. Turning old models that have been sitting unused in cases for years into models that I'm once again happy enough with to display or game with is something that really feels worthwhile. Sometimes it just takes a rebasing, other times it also requires touching up, and other times it requires a significant repaint of parts of the model. These two date from at least 1988, as they were both part of those waves of models released in conjunction with Realm of Chaos: Slaves to Darkness, the tome dealing with Khorne and Slaanesh. Both were originally released simply as Beastmen, but they're clearly a cut above most of their compatriots from those releases in terms of fancy-pants gear, and so I've always considered them to be Beastman Champions of their respective deities. I originally painted both of these two many years ago, and aside from the rebasing (the Khornate champion receiving a new 32mm base due to his size), both also needed some repainting. The Khornate beastman, a Kev Adams sculpt from memory had a few pieces of gear that were originally painted green (because contrast) were redone in cadmium red, the webbed ruff was reddened, the (badly sculpted) shoulder spikes were redone in black from their original "aged horn" look and the armour and metal parts were redone, with a bit more done to highlight and shade. Painting in the gems across his crown was the final bit of updating. I never liked this Khornate sculpt, but the rebasing and removal of the garish greens have turned my opinion a little. It feels like a solidly ok figure now. Still nothing great, but decent. The Slaaneshi beastman, which I believe is a Jes Goodwin model had much more of a repaint. Back in the day I thought that "Slaanesh" meant "lots of garish colours" apparently. The leather legging (originally a pale, bright blue) was repainted to match the corset. The grinning face shoulder pad was originally pink, and repainted a dark gold/brass to match the sword's furniture and foot guard on the legging - which also features a grinning face. The leather straps were changed from a deep blue to a Deep Purple(!) to better match the tone of the figure set by the corset and legging, and the bag - which was originally a horrid garish yellow was also turned into a Deep Purple. The studs on the leather strapping and legging were also changed to a pale, pastel yellow to match those originally on the corset. I deepened and highlighted the yellow-green of his fishy head-crest to define it a little more, and highlighted his pale skin further, though it's a little washed out in the images here. The sword was originally a deep, dirty metallic blue, which I turned into a brighter metallic green. As with the Khornate, the brass was highlighted a little. The red crab-claw remains untouched, as does the pink panel on his right breast. I'd have repainted that one, but I decided to leave the freehand Slaaneshi rune untouched. A fair bit more work, but it's turned this figure from what I've always thought of as a "trash model" into something I really quite like. These guys will eventually be included in armies for Kings of War, but exactly which armies remains to be seen. My Beastmen (Herd) army will be much more of a "Bestigor"-type army, while these two (and many of the others that are part of my renovations of my older models) are deeply Realm of Chaos-style Beastmen rather than the more feral Bestigor-style.
  6. Hi all, I like to paint my minis in batch, so I tackled recently all the "Beast Mode!" section of the Bones 2 Core set. I'm ultimately planning to use them as part of my Beastmen warband for Mordheim. BloodHoof, the Minotaur Barbarian is one of my favorite sculpt among these. Here he just chopped his way through a High Elf. The Beastmen warriors weren't painted that well (and I didn't clean up enough some massive mold lines), so they don't deserve their stand-alone shots. But they look nice coming out of the woods. The Beastman champion is really massive. It looks like he could hack a minotaur in half. BronzeHeart, the Minotaur hero. With his nice fitted armour and pretty axe, he doesn't fit too well with my idea of Minotaurs (blood thirsty savage beasts...). But fun to paint nevertheless. And a little group shot C&C welcome
  7. And a duo fresh out of the dungeon. While I was really impressed by the new sculpts for these guys, it seemed like they had the most casting issues out of any of the Kickstarter pieces I've gotten so far. I think it may have been a factor of both new molds and lots of tiny spikes and pointed bits like the horns.
  8. Here's my latest mini, the Elk figure from the Beastmen of the Wyld set. I decided to stick with autumn colors and lots of browns. I'm pretty sure his sword hand was supposed to be a glove, but I didn't want one so I faked a band with the paint. It works better from the front than the back, but I doubt my group will even notice. At some point I'll go back and put something on the shield's banner, but right now I don't really know what I want. WIP
