  1. Tzeentch has always been my favorite of the Chaos gods. It might have been how the Lord of Change reminded me of a Skeksi. Since then, Tzeentch has gone through many incarnations- with the rise and fall of M'Kachen, and the introduction of Fateweaver and Ahriman. Horrors went from funny little chibis to wild messes of tentacles and back again, flamers went from headless fungoids, to bird skull monsters and later to a jumble of gibbering firey mouths. Here is the current Tzeentch chariot for a Chaos Demon force: Now, I had previously painted up quite a few blue and pink horrors for this force, so he had me paint his Brimstone Horrors. They're pretty fun little guys, and very numerous (here's just a sample of the many brimestone horrors that are part of this force). And there's a sorcerer:
  2. This is the Reaper Bones Bat Demon I wanted to try some fiery wings. Comments and likes welcome! Hope you like him.
  3. I really like these elementals' pose and sculpting. So much more imposing and dynamic compared to most other elementals I have seen. Picking flowers... There are many more pictures at my blog Water Elemental was done as follows: first, an undercoat of clear matte varnish. This is key! I used Army Painter Anti Shine spray. Then some vallejo blue ink and when dry several light drybrushings with progressively lighter shades of pale blue up to almost pure white. Then some ancient citadel turquoise glaze here and there, all topped off with gloss varnish. I did some color shade variations all over this one, but I think maybe the gloss varnish fuffs it up so this can't really be seen in the pictures. Fire Elemental was done as follows: First the undercoat of clear matte varnish. Then several abortive attempts with yellow ink which did just not work until I abandoned that idea and undercoated it with three coats of opaque white. After that successive layers of heavy to light drybrush with bright yello - golden yellow -dark pink - dark red brown and finally black. It is important to let the colours dry a bit between coats to avoid tearing off the layer below when drybrushing. Finish with dotting in some blues for the eyes. When painting fire like this, it looks pretty terrible up to the dark red brown layer. Suddenly, it looks pretty sweet indeed. Earth Elemental was done as follows: black undercoart, then heavy drybrushed coat of dark green gray, followed by lighter coats of yellow sand and light grey white. A stone combo that I think works so much better than just shades of grey, grey and grey. I probably should have varied it more with different types and colours of rock represented. but I just could not be bothered as I just wanted it done at this point. I need my Bones 3 shipment to complete the set! When O when will it arrive? Wherefore art thou mine Large Air Elemental? 77311: Large Water Elemental Reaper Bones translucent blue from the second Bones KS unknown sculptor, as it is uncredited in the Reapermini.com listing. 77082: Large Fire Elemental Reaper Bones translucent orange from the first Bones KS sculpted by Julie Guthrie 77185: Large Earth Elemental Reaper Bones from the first Bones KS Sculpted by Kevin Williams all in Bonesium PVC 60mm Reaper display base .
  4. Hey all, been plugging away at my kickstarter minis. I've done a few so far, but this is the first one I started working. I had to paint up my fire giant jailor, and it ended up taking some weird turns.
  5. So.... have you ever started something you thought looked cool as hell... then way into it you just go "$&@% balls!!!"? Kinda what i'm feelin for this piece. Its my third and for a d&d campaign. its basically supposed to be a dark elf sorcerrer but since my elf wizard mini I had on hand at the time was ... well defective on arrival. I figured it was close enough and i'd swap him in (hence my attempt at a fire sword to give any indication of the fire heavy wizard i actually am playing). I primed in dark grey which is what i had at the time. (wish i'd waited for black for this color scheme) found out gun metal sucks on grey... first "meh". Wanted the red to be a bit more catchy so mixed it with metallic silver....wasnt using wet palette at begining so the paint frequently dried and subsequent batches werent always same...so now I almost get the feel this guys going glam..... second "Meh". Other player uses an elf but a ranger, I wanted this guy a paler tone but it just seems to close to the hair I'd done.... third "MEH". At this point i dont think I even like the model really. Think I was rushing to make the weekend dead line to have the three minis done with this being the last one.... any thoughts to possibly save this one from the green bath of shame? (at this point I'd rather play one of my spiders)
  6. So what class would a Undead Hunter be? Paladin?
  7. 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.
  8. So, I cannot hold it in anymore. I must Share the results of my hard work before I explode or something. If you have NOT gotten a Secret Sophie Package Proceed at your own risk!!!!! -------------------------- -------------- So first off the piece of Cork on her behind was removed as soon as I saw that it was there in the Pictures. So, I painted up Yephima the Giantess as a Fire Giantess. My Partner for this Exchange Was . They did not have a lot of preferances as far as requests. just some thing cool. So, Fire. :P GF
  9. Here is the Dragonborn Sorceress from Oathsworn Miniatures for "Heroines in Sensible Shoes" Kickstarter as Mutilated, I mean Painted by me. I tried to make a kind of Burn Scar Effect and Failed dismally I admit. I do like how the Torch Flame came out though. And now that I think on it, I should have posted this in the Work in Progress section, too. GF
  10. That lesson being: pay attention when assembling your model, and look at how pieces fit together to see if they'll be easier to paint separately rather than glued together. The fire demon is one of my favourite minis from Bones II, but I was still very new to the hobby when I got my shipment, so after washing and drying all of the minis, I didn't give a second thought to starting to assemble them in order to keep pieces from being lost. I quickly realized that this was going to make painting certain parts of this guy difficult. I also learned that CA remover dissolves Bones material much easier than CA glue. The only saving grace was that I didn't glue the pauldrons on. Working under them would have been harrowing. I'm certain that a better painter would have no problem getting a brush into the smaller nooks and crannies. I am not a better painter. This particular project was frustrating enough that I started it last summer and only finished it now (this is also a feeling that I am unfamiliar with. In the past I was always able to force myself to complete a mini, even if only so that I could say that it was done). There were several times that I very nearly chucked the demon into the trash and bought a new one. Anyhow, several months of frustration later, I consider him pretty much finished. I might go back later to highlight the runes on the sword (or maybe try an OSL effect on it, if I'm feeling particularly brave), but that's it. Overall, I like him. Managed to get some decent highlights with the red skin, even though it's not the smoothest transition, and I think that he'll look suitably impressive when he throws down against a group of unsuspecting (or more likely, suspecting) PC's. A day will come when I will get some decent lighting, but it is not this day!
  11. Two of Reapers metal Dragon Hatchlings. Although they are listed as Fire and Swamp hatchlings, I didn't exactly paint them that way. They were for a friend's up and coming Dragon Island campaign. Should be a nice addition the the battles to come. They were more of an experiment in colors for me and may end up painting one of Reapers larger dragons using one of their color schemes.
  12. Over the weekend I finished up the first of the Bones 1 Iconics II Pathfinder Miniatures set: Seltyiel, Iconic Magus. I've slowly been trying to create a Wizard and Apprentice pair for each of the 10 schools of magic from the Frostgrave core rulebook, and one of the ones I haven't done yet is the Elementalist type. I thought this guy might make a good fire-based Elementalist, so decided to go that direction with my painting. ​For the step-by-step painting write-up, please see my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2016/09/seltyiel-iconic-magus-figure-244-of-266.html
  13. I was interested in trying out the Vallejo fluorescent paints, and saw that James Wappel on his blog had painted the Bones Medium Fire Elemental in them. Heavily inspired by his work (i.e. I shamelessly stole and copied), I tried the same as a little test run (I'd like to use these paints on some bigger fire elementals down the road). The paints were very different to work with, and I wasn't really able to thin them very successfully (using just water). Painting wasn't therefore so much an exercise in blending as it was pushing quite thick paint around and trying to get it where I wanted it. Nevertheless, the paints really glow, and the mini looks quite striking from a little distance on the tabletop. I'll definitely be coming back to these paints!
  14. So - this is my first time "painting fire". It's not bad, but it's not good either... Advice for how to do it better next time? PS. I know that this figure is supposed to be a water creature, but I "made it work" to be a fire elemental lady who's an "ash mage" of sorts or whatever...
  15. Hey guys back again this time with the awesome Fire demon! This mini has sooo much detail. I had a blast doing this one I literally painted him by using a series of dots on the skin in three different shades of green! There must be thousands of dots lol. I also accented the dots with white cracks. I am very proud of this model, Any comments are wanted and gratefully received! Enjoy,
  16. This was an interesting one to paint. I painted Agramon around the same time as Vanja. I wanted to break up the monotony of color a bit from the standard art for the pit fiend, so I attempted a like charred and blackened skin in parts and the bony ridges. Made a rookie mistake and painted the fire backwards, haha, but hey.
  17. I think this is my best yet. What do you guys think.
  18. This is an old Ral Partha ( I think--if you know differently, please let me know and I'll edit the thread ) brazier I was originally going to use it with my evil shrine aquarium piece (see here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60231-evil-shrine-terrain-piece/?p=1089218), but I couldn't get it to fit inside to my satisfaction. I finally decided to just paint it up separately. I wanted to try painting fire again. I've done it a few other times, but it always looked 'wrong' somehow. I'm moderately happy with this attempt. I started off with white, went to yellow, and then used red, orange, and finally all three wet blended together to try and make it look 'real'. What do you think?
  19. Sorry for posting this a day late...These are for the 2015 resolutionary challenge. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. So here goes: 77080: Wall of Fire from Reaper Bones KS2. This piece is made in orange coloured transparent Bones PVC. Obviously, I still struggle with fire. Oh well, I still have a few more of the transparent Bones to practice with. and the slightly smaller The Campsite Fire from Oathsworn Heroes KS resin scatter terrain, (I need to say that it looks much better IRL, with more sculpted detail than is apparent in the photo). both have 30mm bases. The Oathsworn one is integral.
  20. Last Blood Rage Giant. I love the savageness of these giants. He reminds me of Mumm-Ra a little.
  21. Here my first two miniatures that I have painted please let me know what you all think.(update the models are 77279: Narthrax and 89032 Anti Paladin) I modified Narthrax with fire out of the mouth.And I modified Anti Paladin by Thinning the cape out.
  22. This is the Bones version of Aaron the Conjurer, and I thought I'd use him to start dabbling in OSL. I took the opportunity to try several new skills. This is the first time I've ever tried painting flames. I cut him off his integral base and pinned him to one of my new PVC bases from CMON's Kickstarter, which was a first as well. I also practiced glazing a bit, it really helped smooth out the robe. So I know that there are a lot of things I could improve on this piece, but I'm trying to focus on speed and trying new things, so right now I'm mostly looking for specific feedback on the OSL. It doesn't quite feel right and I don't know if I laid it on too thick, missed some spots or chose the wrong color. (I'll freely admit that I was getting a serious case of "I want it done already", so I rushed things.) I have to admit, I love the base inserts for working with Bones. It was so easy to get him on that base and it looks so much better than just leaving him on the integral base. Definitely have to get some more of those.
  23. Recently caught this on TV, the Slow Mo Guys filmed a home made fire tornado in 4K. It's quite hypnotic. Seeing a few of the screen captures going around, in my mind it became *the* flame reference for so many subjects. It also made me realize something that's been bugging me about the clear plastic fire elementals. They should be a far lighter orange, near yellow even instead of that dark reddish orange.
  24. I finished the Blue Flamed Hell Hound. Not happy with the blue flames, I may have to revisit it at a later date... I do like the way his skin came out with the wet blend / layering... The other 20 miniatures are clamoring for paint.... (WiP) So here it is (for now anyways!) (I have never been good a painting regular flames either....) Comments welcome! 8) George
  25. Been painting a lot of my sculpts and not paying enough attention to the piles of albino Bones still waiting for paint. So I guess it's time to change that. Tried to make the base look somewhat like fresh ash; not sure if I succeeded. Painting magical fire was a lot of fun; getting rid of mold lines not as fun. All in all, I think it went decent for a tabletop level job. PS: Also, I read somewhere that the unofficial Bones II SKUs are not accurate. Is there an official policy for how to tag unreleased Bones? I could have sworn I saw it somewhere on the forums, but I don't recall where.
