  1. To change from fantasy, I wanted to do a quick paint of a Chronoscope mini in Bones. According to the store, it is "Frank Buck, Adventurer". I like the sculpt and its likeness to a very famous archaeologist / adventurer in the movies. My goal was a quick & simple paint job and nothing fancy for the base. The problem was that the mini was badly bent at the ankles making it lean forward a lot and no boiling/cooling was able to fix it. So, I still had to re-base it, and got a bit carried away in the re-basing process which yield to this mini vignette: "Heading into the Jungle" The tree and base texture was made with Scupley and lichen. The car is a Tamiya model kit of a Russian field car.
  2. “Off to off the wizard” The figures are from Reaper Bones KS3, “Chronoscope Wild West Oz”. Since they all were armed, I see this as a sort of hit squad, hence the title. I based them on 30mm round display bases from Reaper, and I 3d Printed a 20mm round in a similar style for Toto. Since not only the Tin Man, but also the flying monkey are obvious metal robots, I think “Weird West Oz” or even “Steampunk Oz” would be a more fitting moniker. The miniatures are made in the slightly harder Bonesium, henceforth to be known as Better Bones™. Since the third Bones kickstarter, all Chronoscope Bones are coloured grey, The Flying Monkey, Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow are sculpted by Bob Ridolfi, with Dorothy and Toto by Julie Guthrie. Only the Scarecrow seems to be released in Bones as of yet.
  3. Just got this guy prepped & primed and started basecoating. (Spoilered for my exchange partner.)

    59038: Houngan, sea captain

    A couple of tabletop Bones I painted over the winter and finished up this week. Not sure of the sea captain's number yet, I don't think he has been released.

    Not A-team minis

    So anyone have any recommendations for minis to represent the A-Team?

    I finished her. It's finished but not perfect. I could have messed around with things even further and cleaned her up a bit more. I really probably could have left her sitting for weeks trying to figure out what else to do which is when I decided it's done. Pretty happy with the eyes on this one. Also, the chaps were the first time I'd attempted to do distressed leather which I think look pretty good for a first attempt. Probably could have gotten clearer pictures but didn't want to fight with the phone any longer. ETA: C&C welcome.
  9. Since I didn't have enough project already... Here is a little something on the side.. Dee Dee Astro Girl. Also starring The Bones Eye Beast who will reluctantly donate it's eyestalks..
  10. So Saturday (yesterday) morning I finished painting Action Jackson. https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/action/latest/80023 Which is a mini I've been wanting to paint for awhile. It just so happens that Saturday afternoon is when my D&D Adventure League group meets, so before I left I packed up my finished mini to show off and get a few tips from the group's other painters. For the record it was dry before I packed it up. For the last few weeks I've been running our third table; I'm currently doing Horde of the Dragon Queen. During the session the cleric at my table conjured a spiritual weapon. Like a lot of my players he's fairly new so he hasn't bought any minis yet for his PC's so he didn't have anything to represent his conjured weapon either. So when he conjured his spiritual weapon I placed Action Jackson on the field which my players loved. Turns out his spiritual weapon was one of the party's heavy hitters. Which made the figure all the more fun to have on the field. I know I can't be the only one who paints something and thinks they'll never get to use it and is proven wrong. Has anyone else been able to use Chronoscope miniatures in and odd or mismatched RPG setting? Though I love this miniature it certainly doesn't belong in a 5e game, but I'm glad I could use him to comedic effect.
  11. One really nice feature of Bones is that if I want to do "rider conversions" of minis, it's much more attractive to do so than with pewter counterparts. A big part of this is because the figure is cheap enough that I don't feel like I'm committing sacrilege by cutting up and re-pinning the figure into a "rider" pose. Another part is that it's a whole lot easier to do that cutting-and-pinning business. (One downside is that I can't simply bend a leg into a slightly different position, but "slightly different position" wouldn't apply to this project anyway.) So, for Necronomicon 2015 (http://stonehill.org/necro.htm -- in less than a month!) I'm running a Fallout-themed scenario for my Saturday night game. I already have a number of apocalyptic heroes (many of them Reaper conversions) painted up and ready to go, should I have the need to fall back on them, but I thought I would try my hand at a few figures specifically themed to fit into the Fallout universe, one way or another. And so, I happened to have a couple of extra copies of "Rex" (#80009) from the Kickstarter. One, I already have painted up and ready to do an Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminator 2 impersonation, but here I had two pristine plastic figures (one in a bag, one in a blister), plus a weird Hot Wheels "Boss Hoss" motorcycle toy. (Note: Hot Wheels are often billed as 1:64 scale, but the deal is, they're toys -- not models -- and hence the "scale" is so fast and loose as to be nearly meaningless. In the typical Hot Wheels blister pack, a motorcycle is the same length as a sports car, a VW bug, a semi truck, an ambulance, a fire truck, a spaceship-on-wheels, or what-have-you. I have no idea what scale the Hot Wheels motorbikes are, but I've found them to be "close enough to be plausible" for pairing up with Chronoscope figures for my purposes.) Since I'm running with Savage Worlds here, I'm not beholden to a strict base size standard (not, in any case, the way I would be with Iron Kingdoms, etc.), so I decide to grab a Mage Knight "rider" base, put some putty on it, and make a textured impression, for a bike base. For the standing model base, I am just using an inverted 25mm round Reaper base, which the integral Rex base fits into with a noticeable gap. Sometimes I try to gap-fill with putty, but I'm not sure it'll really accomplish much, so I'm skipping that for now. The "rider" figure just consists of the same Rex model, but with limbs cut and re-pinned into new positions, and with some putty as gap-filler. If I can find an open left hand piece in my "bitz box" of suitable size to replace the riding Rex's left fist, I'll do so, but I tend to be short on left-handed bits. (It's usually RIGHT hands -- with various right-handed weapon options -- that I have an excess of.)

    50327 Victorian Ladies

    So, My sister has a 'Best Friend Forever', and that friendship has lasted... long enough that one of them has become a grandmother... And my sister had her Birthday recently, and I figured to give her something slightly special... The first... Ice Blue and Moss Green dress. The second: Moss Green and Ice Blue dress... Side by side... And seen from the back: The bases was made as a single base using a Happy Seppuku stamp, cut to size, then split down the middles with a knife. The base material was some cheap air-drying stuff I found at 'Sisters Greene'. PAintjob is Concrete and Rock Grays, and a dark gray wash in the cracks, then a matte varnish all over, with some gloss varninsh added to the cracks afterwards. I probably should have made it possible to remove a mini with it's 'half base' from the plastic base so that it could be placed next to the other, but the base material is just so brittle that I didn't think it would survive very long. The plastic 'stepped' bases comes with plastic domes, to protect the minis from dust. Sorry about the poor lighting. And the focus could have been better, too, but I was in a bit of a hurry to get them finished, photographed and given away.

    Andre Durand Conversion 80005

    I did a conversion for a friend of mine for his marvel Super Hero Game he's running. The plan for the paint was to mimic a worn dusty old German Desert Camo and lots of earth tones. The character uses his fists to create shock waves in the ground and near by objects. If you think is is cool there is a lot of stuff on my business's Facebook page Please feel free to follow me for more pictures. ( facebook.com/TabletopGlory )

    Rex, Dark Future Hero 80009

    I did a conversion for a friend of mine for his marvel Super Hero Game he's running. The plan for the paint was to give it a punisher feel and he wanted a heart beat logo on his chest like a heart monitor would display. The character uses the power of lightning witch he can channel threw his shot gun.

    50196 Devil Girl, Supervillain

    Straight from the depths of hell, it's.........Devil Girl, Supervillain! (cue scary music!) For a change, instead of painting the eyes looking straight on, I painted them so that she was looking to the right as if she just spied a do-gooding superhero & was about to lob a fireball in their direction. The base was created using the Basius "Dungeon" stamp with the river part painted up as lava - I imagined that wherever she walked, the ground morphed into fiery molten goodness. Thanks for looking, comments & criticisms are always welcome.
  16. I finished my Diorama I made as a tribute to Lemmy from Motörhead. I've put in many references to Lemmy and Motörhead I'm curious if you can get them all. I know some people like Motörhead too and there a few Metalheads around here. So I've put my references in this spoiler. See if you can get them all. The main scene is a dirty backstreet alley, here a pimp and his girls clash with a biker and his chick... turf war? Drugs deal gone bad? "My girls walk this part of town"?? Who can say...in minutes the violence will erupt.

    "What's that boy? You smell something? Oh...........I think that's me! I had great fun painting these two, especially the dog. I was originally going to paint the guy up as a cop but I settled on a regular Joe. The fallen fence is made from a matchstick cut into quarters with a length of 0.6mm copper wire threaded through some drilled holes. Here's some more pics: Thanks for looking! C & C's always welcome!

    50239: Motorcycle by Glitterwolf

    When Peaches heard her man had been drinking Jack Daniels and which part of town he was, she took the Warpig and rode like the wind. Is she in time? If not, the Harley is not too blame. This is a Mean Machine... WIP http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66545-street-violence-by-xherman1964/ DIORAMA http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69093-angel-city-diorama-by-xherman1964-tribute-to-lemmy/?p=1378316 I painted the Motörhead Warpig on it as a tribute. And of course the roads are dirty..so not too clean..
  19. A couple of quick paint jobs to add to my collection of modern/sci-fi gaming figures. The crate came in the swag bag at Reapercon, it was a solid dark brown and I drybrushed it heavily with a flesh tone to make it look more like wood. Bonnie has no face. I did the best I could with what was there. I put her on a metal washer because she is so light the slightest jiggle flips her over on the table. Frank is a pretty solid guy, OTOH. They are both a little shiny because I sprayed them heavily for table use.
  20. For Minivember I will try to do a different model each day (duplicates or similar models (from the same unit or suchlike still only count as one!). If you want to see the rest of my minivember minis, feel free to have a look at my painting blog..I won't be posting each and every one here, just the Reaper minis and maybe some that I find especially interesting. Yes, they will be speedpaints, just like all my minis. The LAF forum has for some time been running the Back of Beyond painting club, and I would have liked to enter something if only I had a Back of Beyond-themed mini to paint. The theme being "Russian Civil War and Central Asia in the 1920s. Thus you may post everything about RCW or any rumbles at the time between 1917/1918 and 1930 in the far regions of Central Asia, included Mongolia, China, Far East, Tibet, NWF etc. And we're talking here not only about historically correct stuff but also about some Pulpish interpretations of scientific expeditions in this area, e.g. adventurous scientists looking for lost treasures of ancient times". I have almost zero historical minis, same goes for Pulp...so nah. But...after reading that again it finally clicked in my head. "adventurous scientists looking for lost treasures of ancient times"... Wait a minute! I have a Bones mini that fits that bill! Officially named "Frank Buck" I think something along the lines of "Alabama Smith", "Mississippi Harrison" or "Oregon Ford" would have been more appropriate.

    80004: Sascha Dubois

    My third mini so far. Really proud of the coat and boots. Tried to improve upon the eyes.

    80004: Sascha Dubois

    Needed to paint a back up character for my savage worlds campaign, so picked Sascha Dubois. I wanted to make her a bit more modest than the bikini top wearing miniature (don't need it getting weird at the gaming table) so I carved her belly button off and the middle line of her abdomen and painted over as if she's just wearing a regular top. I like the idea of her as a captain or pilot of some sort, she appears to have a telescope or looking glass hanging off her waist, and I decided it was definitely a compass she was holding. Hair was the fire red / phoenix red / fire orange triad and the ultraviolet blue for the coat. Some of the best eyes I've done in a while, the miniature still retains a lot of detail on the face such that painting on her eyebrows was possible (a step I usually don't bother with). Thanks for reading, comments, criticism and suggestions are always welcome!
  23. Found this guy in a box of stuff. He'd been cut off the base, readied for pins, and primed. I thought at first it was a conversion, because there's a definite line across his neck and I found some putty on the back of one shoulder, but it turns out this is how he looks in the store, too. We always need goons for our current superheroes game, so I gave him a quick base coat and a wash and called it good. He's on a Secret Weapon base I got in their Bag of Crap.
  24. This is Reaper's 50159: Sister Maria, Nun, sculpted by Patrick Keith. I have a friend who once was a nun, who now writes murder mysteries. Some while ago I made a joking reference to my hobby of painting tiny D&D characters and out of curiosity she took a look at Reaper's main site. Which just happened at that moment to have this figure at the top of the page. She was tickled. We are planning a trip by her part of the country this summer, and hopefully we will be able to meet up for a visit. So I am painting up Sister Maria as a present. Basic prep involved gluing her to her base and gluing in her left hand. I chose the ruler option. I had trouble pinning and in the end just glued her hand into place. Then I primed her thinly with Titanium White and washed her with Burnt Umber (not shown). This is my basic prep for all metal minis. I checked with my friend what the colors of her order had been. Then I started with a little white on the nun's habit. I painted solid Mars Black on her dress and along the base edge. I'm a little sorry I did, actually, because it's so black and solid there's little room to go. Normally when I paint blacks I like building up layers of color like a watercolor. Then I did a little preliminary brushing of highlights in a very simple cold grey. This is very rough and crude yet.
