  1. 01568, Lou the Chibi Cthulhu

    Reaper Miniatures 01568, Lou the Chibi Cthulhu Special Edition Bonesylvanian Figure sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. At 44mm tall, this is the biggest Bonesylvanian so far. I mounted it on a 50mm round base and painted it with acrylics. “We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.” ― H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu

    Here's 01566, Barb the Fly. Special Edition Bonesylvanian Figure sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
  3. Hi friends! We have another project to share with you in our continuing series where Buglips and I paint the same figure using our own very different from each other approaches to miniature painting. If you're not familiar with this series, you can check out our previous topics: 03100: Thanis the Bonecaller 01614: Con Crud 2017 Convention Zombie 02818: Bugbear Warrior For this project, we decided to paint Scorpius Rex Dracus, which is an older figure in the back catalog of Reaper - just look at the number! 02017! He's one of the OG's of the Reaper catalog! Our usual method for picking a figure is generally that one of us already owns it and suggests it and then the other of us goes and orders it. However, for Scorpius Rex Dracus, we actually both already owned him because he's a really neat figure with a lot of personality. I know a lot of people are a bit intimidated by the thought of painting dragons, but I promise they're a lot of fun and this guy would actually be a great starter dragon, as he's on the smaller side. I didn't have a Sir Forscale, but here he is next to Queen Illeosa of Korvosa to give you an idea of his size. So you can see, he's a far less intimidating size than the dragons you see in Bones. (Spoiler alert, I'm going to assemble him a little later. ) But for now, here he is straight out of the blister: As we've done with our previous WIP posts, I will be tackling this guy with my method of painting for display and I'll do my best to take y'all through all of the steps that I go through from start to finish and share my thoughts with you as I go along. As always, please feel free to comment or ask questions - I'm always glad to help out in whatever way I can along the way. I'll try not to take too many blurry pictures....but no promises.
  4. My OSL project -- 02682: Selmarina, Witch by Bob Ridolfi. My intention is to make the orb look like a flaming orange gem. Comments and criticism are welcome.
  5. 77337: Giant Scorpion

    77337: Giant Scorpion (Bones Version) by Bob Ridolfi This poor guy was only half painted when he got used in a D&D Game, without a base. I'm very ashamed that I did that to him. But now he has a base and is much happier. If anyone asks, he is a special genetic mutant scorpion which has different colours on its two halves. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. I definitely didn't get tired of shading him and dump on my shelf of shame, oh no, never. 40 projects left on my shelf of shame.
  6. 01565, Barb the Zombie Cheerleader

    01555, Boris the Chibi Frankenstein. Special Edition Bonesylvanian Figure for Valentines day 2015 sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
  10. This is one of those practice figures I had lying around, a Bones mini I didn't clean the flash off or prepare much, but was just painting for fun and practice while I was doing other things. (So I don't have a WIP, although I might be able to recreate one.) Then one of my GMs looked at it and said Yeah, that one, we'll need that. So I refined it up and finished it. This is a charmingly ludicrous female necromancer from the imagination of Bob Ridolfi. I painted her up with stark white skin -- oh, I can't remember why, originally, but now she is going to be used as a vampire, so that works. The skull she is holding is clearly a mask. It has a flat back. She was rather fun.
  11. Here's my take on this cute little guy. I tried to do more glazes on him than the way I normally paint, and his eyes are violet, which I think came out ok. Wishing I'd been able to get the huge mold line off his head but oh well. He's still adorbs.

    01546, Tut the Chibi Pharaoh, Special Edition Bonesylvanian Figure sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
  13. Kaladrax and the wand of death, turning those it slays into undead horrors. I modified this first edition of 10012, Kaladrax so that it looks like he's giving an order pointing its left index at an enemy or direction. I also converted the bones of the right hand and added a Wand of death in his closed fist. The Wand of death comes from Reaper's 10005, The Court of Abyst boxed set. On the base, I used natural rocks, Army Painter Wasteland Tuft and natural dry lichen as tumbleweed. 10012, Kaladrax the Dire Drake was sculpted by Jim Johnson. The 03815 Skeletal Halfling, 03816 Skeletal Elf, 03817 Skeletal Dwarf and 03820 Skeletal Minotaur were all sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

  19. 77610: Esme

    This little lady has been kicking around my desk for a while. She’s a really fun little figure and I’d been putting paint on her here and there and I finished her up tonight.
  20. 77596 Sandy the Mummy Bones

    So it's been forever and a day since I've painted a Reaper figure, and I've never painted a Chibiesque mini before. On Facebook though, my wife saw a painted version of this delightful little big headed mummy and told me how much she liked the figure so that got me to hunt it down and paint it for her. It was nice because being a face and rags, it really didn't take too long to do, I think from beginning of painting to end, not including the base was probably five hours. I went more green on his face than the greys I've seen in most of his renditions just for something a little bit different and I didn't want to make his bandages too, too dirty, so tried to still leave them with a linen or cream color. Anyhoos, here he is, enjoy!
  21. Want more WIP threads like this one? Check these out! 01614 Con Crud 02818 Bugbear Warrior 02017 Scorpius Rex Dracus Hello again, friends and neighbours! Several years ago, after the Bones I kickstarter, I made a thread to help people who had just signed up for a ridiculous amount of Bones minis get used to painting and encourage them to just jump right on in! This thread was even more successful than I thought and, much to my astonishment, brings new people to our hobby even today. I thought it was time for a fresh update that might be just as helpful, and maybe give us something to point new people to when they first decide to pick up a brush and become One of Us. Often when new people come by and have no idea where to start, the first general question is: what are your aims and requirements? This basically breaks down to: do you need pieces done for a game, or do you want to paint just to paint? The idea behind this WIP is to give us something to show people the difference in practice. So with the able assistance of Guindyloo, I will be painting Thanis in my usual fast-but-decent method and she will show us how nice things can be when you spend some time on them. There are, of course, many ways to paint a mini so this thread is just an example of our present working methods and by no means serve as the only way to do it, or the final word on the matter. Those of you just joining our hobby may have your own ideas about how to do things, and by all means you should use your own best judgment! All we do here is just give you some things to think about. So on to the mini you came in here to see, and I hope this thread proves useful! Here's my Thanis, fresh from her blister pack:
  22. Townsfolk of Dreadmere: Mercenaries 03793 by Bob Ridolfi
  23. I speed-painted these over two afternoons to be a party of NPC adventurers for an eclectic mash-up of Exalted and the World of Darkness. They are 77322, Kassandra of the Blade (sculpted by Werner Klocke); 77405, Aeris, Female Elf Ranger (sculpted by Julie Guthrie); as-yet unnumbered Mythos figures based on 50032: Jake Ryan, Hero Explorer (sculpted by Bobby Jackson) and the Victorian Lord from the set 50326: Victorian Lord & Dame (sculpted by Bob Ridolfi); and 77409, Flara, Elf Heroine (sculpted by Werner Klocke). WIP thread here.
  24. My GM needed a party of NPCs fast for a game of Exalted set in the World of Darkness (think fantasy characters popping up in a modern day world, more or less). There was no time to order anything, but we had the handy new Bones III core and Mythos sets. These are the Bones minis 77322, Kassandra of the Blade (sculpted by Werner Klocke); 77405, Aeris, Female Elf Ranger (sculpted by Julie Guthrie); as-yet unnumbered Mythos figures based on 50032: Jake Ryan, Hero Explorer (sculpted by Bobby Jackson) and the Victorian Lord from the set 50326: Victorian Lord & Dame (sculpted by Bob Ridolfi); and as a free bonus 77409, Flara, Elf Heroine (sculpted by Werner Klocke), who was simply a "Vale Swordsman Elf Grunt" in metal (she was the first character picked for the one represented by Kassandra of the Blade, and I painted her up anyway as an extra and useful figure). I painted these really fast -- for me -- in two afternoons, one to prime and paint faces and one to paint the rest of them. It's not quite my one-hour robot speed paint, but for me it was super fast and the results are more tabletop-quality than my usual run. First I washed and primed all the Bones with Reaper's Brown Liner. I did not clean flash up as much as normal owing to the tight deadline. Skin work, using simple mixes of earth pigments plus white: Burnt Umber (for the darker skin tones), Burnt Sienna (for the pinker, lighter skin tones), Red Iron Oxide (for really pink skin) ,and Yellow Ochre plus Titanium White. Hair was laid in with the same palette plus Carbon Black. Rough shading with ruddy Burnt Sienna-Titanium White shadows and greyer Burnt Umber-Titanium White shadows. This character, a former Fae, has dramatic blue-streaked hair. This is a classic mix of Phthalocyanine Blue and enough Titanium White to make it opaque.
  25. A little backstory: At PaizoCon, there's a fella named Cosmo who runs a TTRPG survival game, where you have to last at least 20 minutes against...killer clowns. Yes, that's right, you get mobbed from all sides by wave after wave of malevolent, monstorous clowns of all kinds. @Reaperbryan paints at least one clown mini for him every year. And if it wasn't originally a clown, he MAKES it a clown. Last year, he and a few forum members (myself included) painted up a whole nightmarish Ronald McDonald clown crew. It was glorious and terrifying and a whole lot of fun. But this year, Cosmo had a special request: he'd gotten Hecklemeyer and Styx, and asked Bryan if he could paint them up. Being a good management type, he delegated the job to me, since he was already working on turning a giant into a rubber chicken-wielding clown (which came out amazingly). I had originally planned on purple and gold, with perhaps some red or green accents. Instead, purple and teal happened. It's almost as though it was inevitable. (pardon my fingers in the picture; it was the only way my camera would show the correct colors. Since I was at the con, I didn't have access to my normal photo-taking setup) Here's a shot that shows the puppet hanging off of his belt. I gave it a clown nose too, of course. Group picture! Cosmo was a very happy Cosmo when I gave them back. He did, in fact, squee loudly (followed by maniacal giggling). It was extremely gratifying. EDIT: I should clarify that when I say Speed Paint, I mean that I painted it in 3-4 hours, not during an actual speed paint event. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
