  1. Ghost King does not appreciate kitty disturbing his grave. Kitty is unconcerned. The king was a study in frustration and the pics are not the best. His armors shadows are much more pronounced IRL and the dirt of the graveyard is much darker IRL. Kitty is itty bitty but I managed to get the eyes painted, I bout jumped for joy. The base was the most fun. The resins details are so sharp, lovely to work with. As always C&C welcomed. I will take all the advice I can get and attempt to apply it to the next figure cause after over a month, I'm so one with this dude. Thanks for lookin!
  2. Hi all, I keep true to the undead theme I have going on at the moment and decided to paint Tim Prow's Ghost King to get a bit of variety while converting the Necromanceres. He is slightly converted, I exchanged the skull and one of his hands. I wanted him to cast a frost lance with the outstretched hand and preparing another spell with the hand pointing up. I already added a small green flame to the hand, the frozen lance will need to wait until the fabric is done. So far only the face and the armour pieces are finished, even though I might enhance contrast on the verdigris, depending how contrast rich the fabric turns out. Any comments and suggestions are welcome.

    77161: Ghost King in Bones

    My first finished Bones mini. So far I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the material. Several things on this one I'm not happy with, in particular the sword. I was going to redo it, but decided to keep it as is to remind me how not to do glowy effects. Good enough for tabletop. I need to re-read Buglips Bones Threads to remind myself to paint these for joy and not get hung up on display or mold line issues. Anyways, enjoy. http://www.coolminiornot.com/367610
  4. Completed Ghost King. I added a good bit of "necrotic green" wash between the armor plates, over the chain mail, and to the base underneath his robe. I think it turned out pretty well. There's a few unpainted spots I can see on the pictures way down underneath, but I'm not terribly worried about them because I can't even see them when I'm holding the mini up in natural light. Camera flash is very unforgiving. Next up is the Whispering Tyrant. WIP thread here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64985-undead-lords-2-ghost-king/#entry1243291
  5. Second member of my undead quadrumvirate; the Ghost King. I'd say I'm about 70% finished with him. Same green mix from my Lich (what I've been thinking of as "necrotic green") was used for all the places I could think of where light would leak out from the armor, robe, or skull. He may look a bit wet in the pictures, because his second coat of Reaper black ink was still drying when I took them.
  6. This is a small diorama/vignette for the Ghoul, Bad, & Ugly contest for Halloween. The figures used are 77143: Townsfolk: Undertaker, and 77161: Ghost King. This was my first attempt at OSL, and I'm pretty proud of it. The undertaker is a great figure; he has really sharp features that make it easy to paint an expressive face. WIP here.
  7. Hopefully one part of a small diorama for the Halloween contest, here's a WIP for the Undertaker. Thus far, he's painted as if lit by moonlight; a much stronger OSL will come from the lantern in a bit. So the back and face are pretty much done, but the front needs much more work.
  8. Here is 77161 - Ghost King. Base coats applied on armor, cloak, and weapon. Next I'll get to his face, gem on the sword, etc. Feel free to comment.

    77161: Ghost King

    In order to continue to push my abilities as a painter, as with any artist, I decided to try and step things up a bit with this figure and do something I generally don't feel comfortable doing...OSL. I'm happy with many things I did, and not happy with a few others but I'm continuing to learn! As a DM, my idea was that this was once a powerful king who's favored weapon (his sword) had been sundered upon his defeat. As with Viking tradition, this dishonor was met with such rage that the dead king arose as a powerful spirit who's own ethereal energy completes his shattered blade. C&C always welcome.

    Grim's first minis in years

    I'm going to start off this "show off" post with an introduction. Hi! I'm Grim (that's not my real name, it's my name in the Society for Creative Anachronism, but seriously, everybody calls me that now. My wife calls me that. My wife's co-workers call me that.) I started mini painting probably in the mid nineties - I mostly used them for D&D, but I got into a few of the smaller-scale wargames - Mordheim, Battlefleet Gothic. I was into "Clan War" for a bit (a wargame based on the RPG and CCG "Legend of the Five Rings,") but liked painting the minis more than actually playing the game. About the mid-2000s I kind of tapered off gaming - I was getting too busy with other hobbies (SCA mostly.) So all in all I had probably been painting from 10-13 years, but haven't touched a brush in about eight. I started gaming on a regular basis recently and was vaguely considering painting again when I was looking over the panel list for Arisia, a decent-sized sci-fi con in Boston. One of the panels was on Miniatures Painting, and I thought "I have a lot of great tips from when I used to do that, I could sign up for that. Hell! I should start doing that again!" I signed up for the panel (we'll see if they choose me for it,) went and bought some paints, I still have a lot of old brushes, and started painting again. I have always loved Reaper minis, when I went into the store and saw the big "Bones" display, I was bit dubious, but I started getting warmer to it before I even left the store. So when I left, I had three packs of Bones minis (the dire rats, the Ghost King, and the Stone Golem) and one metal (a half-giant appropriate for one of my characters.) That was about four weeks ago. I've now produced six minis, most of them Bones. I agree the stuff isn't as crisp as metal, but it's definitely a great way to get back into the hobby. Anyway, I started with the rats (I have pet rats and love the creatures,) but found the lack of definition distressing - I shelved them until recently. The first mini I painted to completion was the Stone Golem, since it was fairly easy, then went on to the Ghost King. Pictures below, multiple views: I am welcome to any comments or questions, feel free! Real criticism is welcome. Incidentally, I took these without a flash with a camera on the tripod - I initially used the flash but found the lighting too harsh for the most part. I'll gladly take any advice on taking the pictures as well - that part of the forums is a bit light.
