  1. Want more WIP threads like this one? Check these out! 01614 Con Crud 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:
  2. #03380 - Rovag, Irongrave Knight

    Another one with an easy face! I think I really nailed the eyes this time!
  3. 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.
  4. I have more orcs to paint, but I'm gonna switch it up for a bit and do some Spooky Scary Skeletons!
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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..
  9. 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
  10. 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).
  11. 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!
  12. 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!
  13. "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!
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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!
  17. my D&D group*

    Front row: 3587 wizard, 3401 elf ranger, 2558 elf warrior Front row: #### dwarf, 14328 cleric * I don't really have a D&D group, I just wanted to paint something
  18. Obsidian Crane's January Painting

    Ok so I'll keep all my work in here at least for the non-Reaper miniatures. Reaper Minis 02697: Yeti P14087B: Fairy with Book / Moth 02665: Killer Frogs 02100: Trissa Cloverhill Non-Reaper Minis GW (pre-1990): Half-Orc Fighter with Sword and Shield GW (Pre-1990): Half-Orc Fighter with Two-Handed Sword GW (LotR): Legolas (Fellowship Boxed Set) GW (LotR): Rohirrim Archer GW (LotR): Rohrirrim Infantry x2 Dark Sword: DSM3103 - GlenRaven - Female Rogue Redbox Games: Christia the Chaste Redbox Games: Lesser Infernal GW: 6x Empire Spearmen (6th Edition starter set) GW: Eldar Dreadnaught (original small head).
  19. 02672: Clawed Devil

    And the second mini I completed tonight after getting to working on him on and off over the last couple of weeks. C&C welcome.
  20. 02664: Phase Cat

    This is another miniature I've had trouble photographing, both because its dark and the tentacles poking out from the mini. Hopefully I'll get a better background on the weekend. C&C welcome.
  21. So here it is. It's not the 20th where I am, and maybe not where you are, but it's 9:30 am in Tokyo and Reaperinos are worldwide. I figured waiting til about now is midway fair for everybody. This Group WIP is for the Reaper Ogre Chieftan (Bones # 77005; DHL # 02832; or LE # 20014 if you're doing a repaint for some reason). ONLY this miniature (diorama add-ons are ok). It has no set duration and no sign up. If you're just happening by now, feel free to join in. I don't have mine yet, so I'll join in when they show up. Some basic ground rules, suggestions, ruggestions in case you haven't been keeping up on the "group interest" thread: 1. Try to limit your posts to a reasonable amount per day. I suggest two as maximum, one early and one later. You may post as many pictures as you like in those posts, within reason (so, like, not 200). This way you have plenty of space to talk about and show off your daily work and everybody gets the opportunity for fair coverage and attention. 2. This thread should be kept for pictures and updates only. If you want to chit chat or comment on somebody's work, please use the "group interest" thread instead of here. That way nobody's update will get lost in a pile of regular posts. Use the "Like" button as much as you want. Group Interest Chit Chat Thread Link: http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/45603-group-wips-interest/page__view__findpost__p__632203 3. ALL participating Ogre WIP posts, with the exception of finished pics you want to put in Show off (when you finish, you can post the finished pics here as well if you want) should go in this thread. There's a lot of people in on this, and a lot not, so we don't want to overwhelm the forum with individual threads. 4. As a general guideline, be respectful of your fellow painters, play nice, and have fun. This is not a competition, it's open to everybody, and if somebody decides to paint their Ogre hot pink and orange, that's a-ok. If you want tips, or to give tips, use the other thread and link to the post in question. Respect and fun are the watchwords here. I think that's everything. If you have questions, PM me and I'll answer as soon as I can. If something comes up I didn't think of, then I'll update this original post. Updates will be marked ETA (Edited to Add). Annnnnnd . . . STARTO!
  22. 03528: Dust Scorpions

    Well finally got these little fellows done. They are speed painted (yes I am working on some minis other than speed painting) and I've only taken a photo of one. They are so small though that my available camera can barely take a picture of them! So here is the 1 workable shot I managed and I'll see if I can get a better shot tomorrow night.
