  1. This is Reaper 03042, the second version of Morrdha, Vampire Noble, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. I don't know what his story is, but both versions are casting something from a book of Up to No Good, and both have a little demon thing lurking at their feet. I loved the lively cape on this figure, and the melodrama. I decided to paint him ginger and make his armor look appallingly rusty. Oh, right, and while I did not exactly do NMM or anything, I did paint his sword with pigmented colors instead of my usual sloshing on of metallic silver. There is no WIP thread, but I would be happy to answer questions. Comments and critiques are also welcome.
  2. We all knew this day would come eventually. The day where OneBoot tosses the very few marbles she has left into the ocean and throws herself in after them. The blank 4th spot in my lovely Goblin Challenge signature badge has been glaring at me for several months now, and my personal circumstances have now aligned to allow me to attempt this, my final Challenge. For those of you unfamiliar with Goblin Painting Challenges, started by our very own @buglips*the*goblin, here is a link to his Kaladrax thread that started it all: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/51269-kaladrax-in-seven-days-buglips-is-crazy-wip/& The short version of the rules is that I will be painting up Dragons Don't Share - 2014 edition in 7 days, using no brushes larger than a size 0. Here's the long version of the rules: You are all invited to join me in my descent into further madness! But only if you bring chocolate and gummy worms. On a personal note, out of all 4 Goblin Challenges, this is actually the one I've been the most nervous about all along (yes, even more so than Ma'al Drakar). Those adventurers are likely to prove to be 5 lovely little time sinks for me, and I'll have to concentrate very hard not to get caught up in all those beautiful details on them! But who knows, maybe it'll end up being the terrain that eats all my time and sanity; we get to find out together! My general plan is as follows: The first couple of days will focus on brown linering and basecoating ALL THE THINGS, while also putting on faces and eyes while my hands are still fairly steady. I will work primarily on the adventurers the first few days, but will take 'breaks' to work on the terrain and the dragon in between to let my eyes and hands relax a bit from the tiny work. My aim is to finish the adventurers by the end of Day 4, or at least get them to "good enough" status; fun fiddly detail bits can be added after this point if I have time, but even without those the figures could be declared done. My final day will likely be focused on finishing up the terrain, and possibly the dragon's wings. Not sure about that yet, but that's what I anticipate. Started: April 3rd 2018, 4:00pm PDT Finished: April 10th 2018, 8:17am PDT Show-off thread: Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  3. This is it! I'm done painting the Bonesylvanians collection. That's twelve Bonesylvanians from 2014 and sixteen from 2015, all in pewter. I want to thank everyone who commented and give feedback along the way. It was a lot of fun moments and there is still a lot more to come. Here are the links to the individual 2015 Bonesylvanians; 01546, Tut the Pharaoh 01547, Cal the Skeleton 01555, Boris the Frankenstein 01556, Elsa the Bride of Frankenstein 01564, Max the Nosferatu 01565, Barb the Zombie Cheerleader 01566, Jacques the Fly 01567, Mary the Mermaid 01568, Lou the Chulhu 01569, Howie the Sea Monster 01570, Betty the Ghost Bride 01571, Jake the Jason Voorhees 01572, Maddie the Gorgon (Medusa) 01573, Mel the Bathalian (illithid) 01575, Olive the Vampire 01576, Gulp the Deep One And, here are some group pictures of the Bonesylvanians class of 2015...
  4. This is Reaper's 60164: Vampire Hunter, as she is rather innocuously called. She is remarkably armed and armored. I think she is from Pathfinder, and I am sure there is some story there. There is no WIP thread. Comments and critiques are, as always, welcomed.
  5. This is Reaper's 50189: Abram Van Helsing, Vampire Hunter, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. There is no WIP thread. As always, comments and critiques are welcome.
  6. 77146 Mummy Warrior Bones

    This guy was always intended to be toy box level painted. Basecoat, dry/damp brushing, and a light wash of Army painter mid-tone. But I actually really like the way he turned out.
  7. 01573, Mel the Chibi Bathalian

    Here's 01573, Mel the Chibi Bathalian (illithid), Exclusive 2015 Reaper Artist Conference Bonesylvanian Figure sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. This one was certainly one of the most challenging and fun Bonesylvanian I painted so far. I've read about their background story and knowing that illithids comes from outter space I decided to give it a little astal twist. I was greatly inspired by the amazing paint job on Antimatter Games DeepStar Kraken and added dots on its forehead.
  8. 77282: Vampire, Making a Toast

    This is 77282: Vampire in Bones, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. I painted him up for a game. There isn't a WIP thread.
  9. 01570, Betty the Chibi Ghost Bride

    Hi everyone! Here is 01570, Betty the Chibi Ghost Bride, Special Edition Bonesylvanian Figure sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
  10. 02181: Sirithis, Succubus

    Another older sculpt I wanted to knock out real quick, this was maybe three hours’ work (not counting stepping away to let paint dry, etc.). To be honest, it looked amazing when everything was just a basecoat, it’s the parts after that that throw me. Anyway, Sirithis (links for nudity): Front Back Still haven’t found a nipple color that works. The search continues. Comments and critiques welcome.
  11. 01571, Jake the Chibi Jason Voorhees

    01571, Jake the Chibi Jason Voorhees, Special Edition Bonesylvanian Figure sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. The dead leaves are white birch tree seed shells.
  12. Hello again, friends and neighbours! As you can see by the title, this dual work-in-progress thread is a bit different from the others we've done up until now, which have all been miniatures from Reaper's Dark Heaven line. We decided that since Dungeon Dwellers is an all-new relaunch, we could double up on our WIP threads so we could do some of these. The painted examples have been quite excellent, and the painting guides released as pdf files an absolutely fantastic idea, so our objective with these threads is to celebrate the new launch and help give a closer look at these new figures and what you can expect when you decide to do your own. We'll be using our own colours in this thread, but the PDF of the painting guide for Rictus by Michael Proctor can be found here: Dungeon Dwellers We are, of course, running a couple of months behind on them so over the next couple of weeks we're going to catch up on the first two and then do this month's freebie: 07003 Bloodbite Goblins. From there we should be able to do the Dungeon Dweller WIPs around the middle of the month so as to show anyone on the fence about getting the freebie how awesome the figures are while they still have time to get 'em as a bonus! For my part I have traditionally never much liked slotted-base miniatures, I've always been an integral-base kinda guy, but these Dungeon Dweller offerings have been a solid 5 stars so far and I'm impressed enough to take the plunge. So I present to you Rictus the Undying in all his unpackaged glory!
  13. 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
  14. 01566, Jacques the Fly

    Here's 01566, Barb the Fly. Special Edition Bonesylvanian Figure sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 01565, Barb the Zombie Cheerleader

    Here's 01565, Barb the Zombie Cheerleader. She's a Special Edition Bonesylvanian Figure sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

  20. 01556, Elsa the Chibi Bride of Frankenstein. Special Edition Bonesylvanian Figure for Valentines day 2015 sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
  21. 01555, Boris the Chibi Frankenstein

    01555, Boris the Chibi Frankenstein. Special Edition Bonesylvanian Figure for Valentines day 2015 sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 01546, Tut the Chibi Pharaoh

    01546, Tut the Chibi Pharaoh, Special Edition Bonesylvanian Figure sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
  25. 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.
