  1. 02817: Moor Hound

    Really liked painting this one, lots of good details. I really wanted to try OSL with his eyes and was considering adding some gore to his claws and teeth but got to this point and decided I really liked how he was looking and didn't want to muck him up with something I haven't tried before. Maybe next time! Feedback is more than welcome, please! Also, finally printed out a background for my pics
  2. 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.
  3. Hello again, friends and monsters (who may also be friends) - we're back with another Fast N' Fancy Reaper miniature. Those of you who may have missed our previous examples and want to check them out can find them through these links: 03100 Thanis the Bonecaller 01614 Con Crud 2017 Convention Zombie But today, we will be doing Dark Heaven Legends 02818 Bugbears by Jason Wiebe. Well, one of them anyway. Since both bugbears are overall similar, we will be doing only one. For multipack figures that are broadly the same (such as skeletons, etc.) we'll only be picking one. Where we might do a multipack with strongly dissimilar figures, then we will do both or all of the figures. So we'll be painting this guy: Also, for those of you who don't know this yet, your Reaper figures now come with a birthday! On blister packs since sometime in 2016, next to the barcode as illustrated by the arrow you will find a production date (or at least a packing date). In this case, my Bugbear was born July 28, 2017. This is very important information for his adoption papers! Should I get him a cake? I should get him a cake. And now for a few words from my painter-partner-in-crime:
  4. So this wasprobably one of the hardest minis I've ever painted. This wasn't helped by the fact that I glued him together before starting to pain (definitely avoiding that in the future). I've also, not had to make so many fixes throughout the process. Overall though I'm happy with the way he turned out.
  5. Reaper DHL 02235 Vanessa Redstorm (mounted)

    This miniature I've had for a while, since about 2008. I tried painting her a while ago, but I got stuck. I don't know about the rest of you, but I find painting horses to be very difficult - mostly because my colours just never seemed quite right. In November, I had to lay in supplies for over winter and that meant buying the last of my paint restocks from Coat D'Arms. While I was there, I noticed in their military line they had some Horse Tone colours. I figured, hey, why not? At least they'd probably wind up the proper colour. So Ms. Redstorm here was my first try using Coat D'Arms 224 Horst Tone Bay. The other horse tones are Dun, Chestnut, and Roan. If anybody is interested in seeing these in use, I have a number of horses and will be ordering more in a few days so I can do a WIP to show the different ones. Having pre-mixed horse colours simplifies the task quite a lot, and four colours is enough to add variety to a mounted group. I really enjoyed painting this miniature, and I never thought painting a horse would be so much fun. Also, if you're wondering why I filed off the intricate design of her shield that shows in store photos it's because her on-foot version (Vanessa of the Blade) I painted some time ago came with some pitting on the shield. As it was not enough to really bother complaining about, I merely filed it off and painted a simple quartered pattern. Since the mounted version should match my footed version, I did the same here. So if you want to see a WIP of the horse tone colours, let me know! I'll pick 4 Reaper horsepeople out of my collection when the new ones come in and paint 'em up.
  6. Finished my first serious mini since gettng back into painting. Had a lot fun with him!
  7. 02514: Kang, Half Orc

    Started working on a mini for someone in my gaming group. As a half-orc oracle of Cayden Cailean, Kang was a perfect fit with a little modification... Here is he primed and then undercoated in Linen White for skin. The mug was just a little Milliput for the body and green stuff for the top/bottom and to attach. I would love any feedback or recommendations (including for photographing) along the way. I've just recently returned to painting (after ~20 years) and never really had anyone to offer useful critque when I first learned.
  8. Want more WIP threads like this one? Check these out! 01614 Con Crud 02818 Bugbear Warrior 02017 Scorpius Rex Dracus 07001 Rictus the Undying (Dungeon Dwellers) 07002 Baran Blacktree (Dungeon Dwellers) 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:
  9. #03380 - Rovag, Irongrave Knight

    Another one with an easy face! I think I really nailed the eyes this time!
  10. Male Antipaladin

    My latest attempt - just a lot of adamantium black and a mix of clotted red / deep red with a bit of ruby for all the skull eyes.. He has a bit of a misshapen head, which may be why he turned to Evil - getting dropped on ones head has odd effects, I've heard.
  11. I have more orcs to paint, but I'm gonna switch it up for a bit and do some Spooky Scary Skeletons!
  12. 06015 and 06009 Orc Army Packs

    Orrrcs! I got two reaper army packs of these bad boys, and they look awesome. One pack, 06015, only had the two Sandra Garrity orcs and not the two Bob Olley ones. Their fantastic customer service has already sorted this out for me, so a Bones orc of the same type is standing in as a stunt double to show the other one that comes in the pack while his compatriots travel by mail. But these six funtime fellows are getting some paint, and I've been looking forward to this!
  13. Reaper 02232 Karina of the Blade WIP

    I still don't have replacement brushes, but I've been getting oddly useful results from my u-shaped brush and managed to heal a W&N Series 7 00 enough to help the terrible brush along. I'd rather fight them a bit than take a painting break, because I've been going gangbusters since about mid-december. I might fall out of the groove if I take a few days off. Since it's been a while since I last did a WIP, and as this one is very fresh and untouched, I thought I'd post her up as I went along. I think you can see the rather large mold lines on the inside of her shield. That's going to be trouble, but I think it's worth it. I'm always a sucker for a nice Sandra Garrity fightin' lady. I've already been picking at it, so she should be ready for primer soon.
  14. 02470 Kobold Raiders

    I bought these some 12 years back, and only just now realized they were mispacked. I have a duplicate, as you can see, but one of those "stabber and board" guys should presumably be the kobold with a spear shown in the store picture. Just noting that they came that way in the pack, and it's not just a random batch I pulled out of The Drawer of Horrors. A kobold is a kobold, and I'll need some... *counts* 5 more packs of these, so I imagine some spear dudes will appear there. I'm especially fond of the big one, who definitely lifts.
  15. 3381 - Satheras, Elf Warlock

    He's just another grumpy old elf who sold his soul to the devil. Today, he's grumpy because his favorite scroll looks like it has blood splatters instead of the runes he thought he put on it last week and his staff is bent..
  16. WIP - Twyla 03548

    This is what I decided to do today while the football game was on.. The issue I'm having right now is threefold: First, I mixed Pearl White and Bloodless skin for the horns, but just don't think that looks right.. Any suggestions (my white(ish) color palette is pretty limited) would be awesome.. Second, I have no idea what color to use for the haft of the mace - it doesn't seem like it should be wood, but there's already a lot of iron and blacks in the mini.. Third, the hooves.. what sort of color mix do people use for replicating hooves.. Colors used: skin - a concoction of clotted red, black, tanned skin and a bit of flame red that I'll never be able to replicate again. armor - shadowed steel mace ball - adamantium black bace chain - blackened steel hair and pants (i converted the thong to skintight leggings with a bit of liquid green - my little kids see enough crack on TV without it being on my desk too) - black
  17. 02677: Townsfolk IV: Bandit

    I'd finished painting this fellow quite a while ago, but I finally did something with his base. He'll probably get some snow on it as well at some point as I'm intending to use him as a Frostgrave thug, but I'll wait until I've got a few to do and mix up a big batch of snow. I think the photos may have ended up a tad too bright, as some of the shadows don't seem as deep. Still, better than too dark. I was trying to make sure that my black was reading as black and not grey here, so let me know how you think I went with that (or anything else you'd like to comment on).
  18. 06017: Orcs w/Axes (1 of 2)

    I picked up a bunch of Sandra Garrity orcs from the factory last ReaperCon, and made a start on them with this fellow to test out my intended colour scheme. Still working on trying to get my shadows and highlights in the right places. Praise and thrown pottery are welcome!
  19. 02316: Brom the Barbarian

    I'd been working on this guy on and off for a month or two to use in Frostgrave, but finished him in a final push a couple of weeks ago. Awesome sculpt, full of character. Had a real go at putting lessons from Clever Crow's shaded metallics class at ReaperCon into practice with his sword, and I'm confident in saying it's the best damn sword that I've ever painted. Perhaps I may finally answer the Riddle of Steel... I'm also quite happy with how is hair turned out, though I think it may still be reading as grey rather than black, particularly from the front. There are a few spots on the shading and highlighting of his musculature that I could touch up looking back at the photos, but overall I'm pleased. Time to go break some skulls in the snow!
  20. "How did this come to pass? This one was with its brethren, raiding the Prime. This one's raiding party was Seeking a lost Silver Sword. This one was wounded, slowed. Then there was Mist, thick, heavy Mist. Mist was all this one could see. This one became separated from its raiding party. This one wandered for a time, then there was this Place. This Place is not the Prime. The core of this one's Being knows it, but this one cannot determine the interplanar coordinates of this Place. This Place is Mystery. This Place is Emptiness. This one is Alone. This one has no choice but to continue the Mission, Alone. The missing Silver Sword must be found. This one must Seek the Silver Sword. This one will find it. This one was brought to this Place for a Reason." As always, c&c welcome!
  21. Reaper DHL 02001, Reaper Famine

    Hiya, kids! Been a while since I posted a work in progress (so many, many Bones), but as I'm presently trying to finish some home renovations and have had to limit my available workspace, I figured I'd start something new in the meantime before I get back to The Horde of Infinite Things. So this is the original gangster, the first guy in Reaper's Dark Heaven Line: Reaper of Famine. This is a pretty cool miniature, and I've had it for a while. Since... at least 2006. Anyway, this is my fourth or fifth try at this same miniature. In fact, I just stripped him again only yesterday. It's a very neat piece, but challenging. Some of that is trying to figure out what parts are what, and then what to do with them. My previous attempts left me feeling cold, and that it wasn't the right direction. But this time, due to the increase in experience painting so much stuff in the last two years and my growth of paint supply, I think I might finally get it done. I'm going to start with the undead horse first, so here's a look at it with some primer on to show the details: As you can see, there's a lot of neat stuff going on here. So this should be a bit of fun, and then I'll have the first DHL mini added to my collection to lord mercilessly over all others.
  22. T'Quan, Skoli Warrior (02434)

    This guy was WIP for a long time, but I finally got around to finishing him up. I'm happy with the red skin on him, it came out pretty well. His eyes are almost impossible to actually paint, though, they're so deep in the sockets. I ended up just shading the socket and calling it done, which I think looks alright. The metallics are a little disappointing in retrospect, but not worth redoing at this point. T'Quan is a really nice figure, and one that you don't see painted up all that often. One of the highlights of the Dungeon Adventurers boxed set.
  23. Cave Troll Champion (02488)

    This guy was mostly done, but I got the base finished off this weekend. And here he is with his bendy friend: It's a bit hard to get the camera to focus on both of them very well. I've got two more Bones trolls to paint up, so if you've got any C&C then let me have it!
