    BEHOLD!

    This is the beholder from Wizkids. He is my first completed mini for Saturated Seotember where I am going to try and spend some time painting every day for the month of September. I have a WIP thread going if anyone wants to follow along or join in! He got a little more orange than I intended but I don't mind how he turned out. I want to get my hands on another one and greenstuff his eye to make a different (round) iris and pupil. Fun mini to paint. We'll have to see how my players like him!

    Gourls paints a beholder

    So, not a Reaper mini, but I got my hands on one of these. I wanted to try painting one up differently than I typically see, where they're largely blue, red, or brown, since the Monster Manual mentions no two beholders are alike. That said, sometime I'd like to get another one to paint up more "traditionally," despite likely never needing to have two beholders on the board at once.

    Beholder

    I generally dislike the WizKids stuff, but some of their larger minis are good. Had this guy awhile, but finally finished his base.

    Eyebeast - 77043

    This was my entry for the Quarterly Painting Contest on Facebook. I pictured him as some twisted villain's pet so he got a food dish and a toy! (Officially known as the Tennis Ball of Fetching!) I have a love of puns and F-eye-do cracked me up so I had to paint his name on his food dish. I made him removable from the funny base and also made the ball removable. This way he can still chomp adventurers! The contest was a blast and out of 70 entries, no two were painted alike. So many color schemes and different eyeballs! It makes me want to get a lot more eyebeasts and recreate some of the awesome paint jobs from the contest. (My players might cry! I fully expect one of their characters to purchase a ball and carry it around in their packs...just in case!) Thanks for looking and C&C welcome!

    Beholder

    Just finished my new Beholder. Hope this mini isn’t sold out trying to do a lot of them. Critique welcomed. I think I might brush the inside of the mouth with gloss, but other than that I think it is done.
  6. So things were a little rushed in getting this finished a week ago, and I never did have the time to do a proper show off... And as final assembly didn't happen until Thursday afternoon..... and the results.... Thanks for all the fun, comments and following along with this!!!!!! George Forgot to link the WiP.....
  7. http://makezine.com/2017/05/02/outfitting-a-dd-beholder-with-led-eyes/ I ran across this "Make:" article in which Bob Richens explains how to mount LEDs in Reaper's Bones Eye Beast, SKU 77043, including teeny-tiny ones in the ends of the tentacles. It looks pretty cool!

    02712, Eyebeast

    Hi everyone, it is my great pleasure today to show you my 02712, Eyebeast. It was sculpted by Julie Guthrie and can also be found in the 10031, Dungeon Horrors Box Set. I added tthe eyestalks on each side of its head. The eyestalks are from Reaper Miniatures 03440, Creature Components II. I intend to add some drool dripping from its maw. It should also be part of a diorama of horrors I have in mind.
  9. I rediscovered this metal mini in one of my stored basement boxes the other day. I have no idea why I did not paint it back in the day. One quick paint job later: 02712: Eye Beast Reaper miniatures sculpted by Julie Guthrie white metal 40mm base

    Ninja Beholder (Eyebeast)

    It's been almost 10 years since I picked up a brush for the first time and to celebrate I repainted my very first sculpt/conversion. My NMM are getting better, but cloth continues to be my kryptonite. Also, I'm not sure how to get rid of the cross-eyed effect? Maybe the pupil is too tall? - Pat

    Maledrakh's 3D printed Beholder

    And they* said 3D printing poses no threat to traditional miniatures... well maybe not yet, but still: There are a few more pics at my blog. This is a 3Dprint I printed out myself on my cheapo Flashforge Finder. Printed in PLA with .01 layer height. I scaled it a bit randomly to make a large one. The original model is by Axolote Gaming, an unexpected bonus item from their second Kickstarter, and also one of the better models of a Beholder I have seen yet. You can see the stepping from the printing process if you look closely. This is particularily obvious in the teeth and the eyeball as.the gloss varnish I used on the eye really made the stepping apparent. It was not half as bad before. At any rate, the stepping is really only apparent when looked at closely, or when magnified such as in the pictures. The fangs are a bit misshapen here and there, mostly from my printer not being all that great. I have not used a file when prepping, just clippers and a sharp hobby knife. Maybe a file would have straightened those teeth out properly. Something to try next time. The tentacles are hollow as their cross sections are to small to include any infill. This means they are quite brittle and prone to snappin off. Luckily only one of them broke during the removal of the supports though. My printer also left a lot of extremely fine hair-like strings attached to the finished print, so together with removing the print-supports there was quite a lot of prepwork. At least I did not have to wash it to get rid of the mould's release agents, as I have realized the truth: there is no mould. A note about painting 3D models: Neither drybrushing nor washes are good techniques for them, as the stepping will get accented and more pronounced. (and here I am with drybrushing and washes as my favorite techniques... argh!) I used a 50mm lipped base with a paperclip to make the stand.

  12. Returning home from H&R Block, who should I find waiting for me but The Taxman. In this case a miniature Taxman & his Associate painted by our own Darkmeer AND generously sent to me to make life miserable for the Poor Folk in The Blight. Seen here making their rounds : ...Bezhukk of the Infernal Revenue: ...Lt. Smiles: ...down to business: I think, having seen them up close & personal, that Darkmeer has done an OUTSTANDING bit of brushwork & basing that richly deserve a VERY WELL DONE! Thanks MUCHO for the Tax Team, Darkmeer!

    77043: Eye Beast (Bones)

    Painted as part of my December Challenge, which I failed to document when my phone broke, it's that big rubber eyeball with the tentacles and some junk. Once it was done I realized it was too top-heavy so I glued it to a steel washer so it wouldn't tip over. I covered the uncovered metal with some coarse white sand and bound it together with gloss medium. It looks almost like rock salt or ice like that. I may use it for that effect on another piece but I'll be painting over it on this one once it all firms up.
  14. 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. :-)

    Before and After

    I went back and touched up some of my very early paint jobs from a couple of years or so back. I thought it would be fun to post some before and after pics. Photo quality is getting a little better, unfortunately most of these models are no longer in my possession and I have no way of taking better pics for when I finally get a decent camera. I know some people like to look at how they progressed over time and keep their 1st minis untouched, but I really like these models so much, that I wanted to bring them up to how I had hoped they would look when I first painted them. Hope you enjoy my extra bit of effort and their final time in the spotlight. BEFORE AFTER BEFORE AFTER BEFORE AFTER BEFORE AFTER

    77043: Eye Beast

    Behold! This is the Bones version of the Eye Beast, primed with Vallejo acrylic grey, then painted with (mostly) Humbrol enamels. Good practice for painting eyes Thanks for looking!

    D&D NPC: Beholder

    Made my own Beholder (sculpting WIP:http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/67297-beholder/) and I can tell you, there's no way escaping it's ray of time consuming. Well it got finished at last, so here it is. Do you like it?

    Beholder

    I'm currently doing a beholder cause I honestly didn't like the eyebeast so much (sorry, Reaper) and wouldn't afford the WOTC rarity one. My goal was to stick with the original 1st edition d&d illustration by maintaining an overall spherical shape, giving it scaly skin (not overdoing spikes and armor) and have the eyestalks wrinkled and belted. On the other hand I wanted it to look realistic and cool, having some actual anatomy. Also should the facial features follow the one-eyed concept in contrast to bifocal layout, e.g. I didn't want a nose or angry single eyebrow. It's about 40mm in diameter, so quite big in game scale but not a really huge one. It's almost done (3 more eyelids) and i would like to get some C&C or cool ideas (also considering the base) before painting it.

    Beholder - GF9

    So many issues with this model, I thought I would never finish it. The 3 sphere portions did not line up very well. Lots of putty. The eye tentacles did not glue on at all (resin/glue issue?), had to use putty which worked very well. Then I painted a he came out looking like mud. Stripped with Simple Green which worked nicely, but I was wondering if the smell would ever go away. So I put back together again, lots more putty, and painted. Did a lot of experimenting, which got me in trouble the 1st time, but I still consider myself new to this and want to try different things. In the end, even though he isn't exactly what I was attempting to get, I like him and pits well against my little band of heroes.
  20. Hey folks! I was looking through some old Forgotten Realms stuff the other evening, and came across my copy of FR1, Waterdeep and the North, and looking at the cover art by Keith Parkinson, I decided that I would like to attempt to re create that as a diorama. So I spent some time with the figure finder, and tried sorting through the characters shown: Beholder- Not sure yet which one I will use to do Xanathar.. The fighter- no mini really jumped out at me when I sorted for male human scale mail. I tried assorted weapons, but again nothing clicked. The CPA- again, sorting human male cloth / clothing and nothing worked... The Dwarf - 03626: Gruff Grimecleaver seems to have good possibilities, the fact that the peg leg is on the opposite side is immaterial. The Drow lady- I would have though a female drow in a bikini and boots would have been relatively easy to find, but again no luck searching under female elf / dark elf... Intellect Devourers- Nothing comes up under that term, and not really sure what to convert from.... I thought that a puma/cougar mini could be modified... I am willing to do modifications.... So if anyone has any suggestions for me, that would be great! Thanks George

    Eyeball Beholderkin

    My own sculpt of an eyeball beholderkin, next to a D&D prepainted drow. I imagine him saying in a creepy voice, "Mistress ... I detect intruders." (Related to my first attempt at a eyeball beholderkin familiar ... http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64578-20021-bathalian-mind-flayer-with-eyeball-beholderkin-familiar)
  22. I sculpted a familiar for the Illithid, an Eyeball Beholderkin. Way back when there was no miniature for a tiny Beholder, so I made my own -- the Eyeball is the first figure I ever sculpted! It's held aloft by a black post attached to the base, which I removed from the picture.

    Going to post a couple of random Reaper monsters today. Starting with this miniature we've used as a D&D 5th Edition Spectator. Made the base texture out of greenstuff. Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  24. Hello All! So my daughter, she goes by Alsnia here, (posting in my account) has decided that she wants to start painting figures again. She will becoming with me this coming Saturday to the New England Paint Day in Groton, CT. So I told her that if you want to paint, you need a figure! She said that she wanted to paint a creature, not a PC type, so I sat her down in front of the 20 minis in the stash of creatures, and told her to choose what she wanted! Out of everything in the box, she choose 02712, The Eyebeast. I warned her about the multiple eyes everywhere, she said "it is harder to draw eyes than paint them...." So I left well enough alone, and aided and abetted her.... Washing the minis- She wanted to know why, so I told her, and had her clean the pieces: (Yes those ARE freshly baked brownies over there... ) Then Prep work- Showed her how to remove mold lines, flash, etc: Then we discussed if the figure should be assembled first, or the pieces primed first. She thought better to prime and paint the inside of the mouth first then assemble. I showed her the gaps where the 2 top pieces fit together, so it was Green Stuff time for the 2 top pieces: So she mixed up a pea size ball of GS An then rolled it out into a snake, we placed it where the gaps showed, put some super glue where the gs wasn't, and stuck it together. She asked my to 'sculpt the outside part, and then she did the inside part of the blending: After that, as it is a school night, off she went to bed.... If she wants to comment, I will let her edit here, or have her write her own post. Hope this helps some other parents out there whose kids might be interested in picking up our hobby by watching us from start to finish! Comments welcome! 8) George
