  1. Just a quick upload of some pics of my converted flower witch to a Harold on burning chariot of tzeentch.
  2. So this mini has been passed along through 3 people before getting to my husband who said only "I think it's a RalPartha ogre." I've found nothing in my attempts to identify it. Unfortunately it was already black primered, so the pictures aren't grand. There appears to be 2 rats on (or coming out of?) it's back, and there's a fish hanging off the belt in the back. Anybody have a clue on this guy?
  3. I'm new to this hobby, spent too much money buying my first pack of minis ((got the Hordes Krielstone bearer and stone scribe 4 set) because I hadn't come across the Reaper Bones at that point) and this is my fifth miniature I've painted. I wanted to paint a half orc barbarian sort of character in case I wanted to try playing D&D on Roll20 or something (im a bit shy, so an in person kind of D&D thing is a bit of a stretch). Welp, here is my uh.. 3/4 orc barbarian :)
  4. I have the miniature pictured below. Does anyone know her name? Has she been discontinued? I would like to buy another, but can't find her anywhere. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/149604018845672761/ The forum won't let me load my pic, so the link is above.
  5. So just recently discovered different miniature videos on You Tube and such and one I was watching today made me kind of think how I pronounce the word "miniature". I flat out just pronounce it probably eighty percent of the time as "min-uh-chur" and the other twenty percent of the time I'll do "min-yuh-chur", but the video I was watching today the guy was saying "min-ee-uh-chur" emphasizing that second "I" while I usually either ignore it all together or pronounce if very slightly and really not as it's own syllable but more as something that softens the vowel in the second syllable. So he was making it a four-syllable word, while mine is almost always a three-syllable word. Not that there is any right or wrong, but I just got curious. Any thoughts?
  6. A Bones Orc Berserker. I'm trying to learn to paint shading on skin, primarily, although I decided to do this orc in green with the olive greens triad. I also decided to try a rust effect for the armor (inspired by somebody's verdegris post). I started with a Ruddy Brown base, heavy drybrushed steel over it, and then dabbed bits of the lava triad oranges on it with my most goofed up drybrush brush. I should make my players save against tetanus with this guy. I see from the zoomed up image that I seemed to have left some gaps in his armpits which is really frustrating, and I'm starting to get bummed out about my lack of basing ability...
  7. This is a really odd figure, but I was looking for a burrowing creature, and this guy fit the bill. Biggest challenge was to find a paint scheme that looked rocky and organic at the same time. A floor wax coating on the teeth and tongue after the flat sealer gave the appropriate "wet" appearance. Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  8. Hey all, A friend picked this guy up for me to paint for his upcoming pathfinder game. This is my 4th painted mini so far, and my first with a good brush. Painted this with a Raphael 8404, and the difference compared to synthetic brushes is pretty great. Anyways, all the colors were chosen by my buddy, and he wanted the gloss finish (though I would have gone with matte) This was also my first attempt at a transition/fade/gradient (dunno what to call it, mind is blank atm) effect on the cloak, which I think came out ok. Also, sorry for the totally 'meh' phone pics, ha.
  9. I was curious how someone can make some tiny printed documentation like wanted posters so that I can glue to the base of a few of my miniatures or maybe glue to scenery? Do you try and use some thinner paper maybe or is the normal printer paper good enough (I doubt it though)?
  10. The LEAD SOLDIER served honorably in Her Majesty's Royal Guard in his former life, and fought honorably in many battles... before being laid low by the sad fate of toys everywhere: he got lost. He had resigned himself to a sad fate of obscurity, and even risked being melted down, until he was rescued by a craftsman and restored to his former glory. His greatest fear is that someone will find out that he is not in fact a Lead Soldier... but that he is actually lead-free pewter, a shameful thing, as lead is dangerous, and a soldier wants to be as dangerous as possible. The WOODEN PIRATE sailed the seven seas in search of plunder, and given that his boy was a rather bloodthirsty sort, participated in many atrocities, which rather disturbed the Wooden Pirate; personally, he was a rather tenderhearted sort, and could be talked out of plundering your ship if it came out that you lacked insurance, a thing which made the other pirates laugh at him at the annual pirate conventions. After striking up an acquaintance with the Lead Soldier, he was convinced to take up heroism as a career, and is known throughout the land of Zo as the slayer of Shaykosch, the Deathless Wolf. The Wooden Pirate has found happiness in his new career field, and can often be found with his friend the Lead Soldier as they undertake new adventures daily. The Lead Soldier was rescued from the adoption table at Reapercon recently, and given a new paint job. His existence inspired the construction of a character found in the backstory of the RPG, "The Zantabulous Zorceror Of Zo," the famous and heroic Wooden Pirate, scratchbuilt from wooden doweling, beads, and some scraps. And yes, I know, his arms are visually disturbing for being a bit too long. This is a thing that will be corrected on the next wooden figure. Y'know what? Cyanoacrylate doesn't hold for beans on wood. Go with epoxy. And Alison wants you all to know she is NOT a puppet!
  11. So, I'm working on the Dungeons & Dragons Animated Series characters, and I'm at a loss for Diana the Acrobat. I've got the rest, minus Dungeon Master and Venger, but I already have some ideas as to what I need to order for those two. And, yes, I know Impact! makes chibi D&DtAS minis. Those aren't what I'm looking for.
  12. Greeting all, What would you recommend for a beginner painter for an easy humanoid (no monster) miniature? I am getting into to painting and want to something easy to begin with. Thanks
  13. This is Reaper's 50287: Caine, Cyber-Troll, a design-your-own mini designed by Wayne Reynolds and sculpted by Bobby Jackson. It came in two parts, which fitted together neatly at his wrists and the shoulder point of the strap. They were rather bulky and I felt better using pins to hold them together. The base supplied was too small for Caine's wide stance, but I hear Reaper is working on that. Meanwhile I used a larger round base and painted it up to look like asphalt. The WIP thread (which also includes a number of old school Ral Partha Shadowrun figures) is here. Show-off threads for the other Shadowrun figures are: a Troll woman from Wolfram's Gang, a Wolfram's gang troll with tattoos, an ork woman street samurai, an Oni bouncer, a cyber-troll in reflective armor, and the unbelievably over-the-top Lord Torgo. You can see the entire squadron of cyber trolls on Jasper the 2nd's Spaceship Superstar - Squad Entries thread.
  14. Heyguys, been a long time since I last posted. I recently decided I want to build a diorama involvingminiatures and at last one muscle car model. I'm not certain of what scale model car I should beleaving toward. I want one of my characters to conceivably be able to drive said car.
  15. Hi there, Just ordered the 3 D&D 5th edition corebooks and notice something in the free basic rules: Fire Giant, Frost Giant and Hill Giant are now "Huge" monsters instead of large. So, do you guys know any nice miniature of these three giant types that fits the 28mm scale? DDM has nice frost and fire giants (including one really similar to PHB's cover) but they are all large size. It doesn't matter if it's plastic, metal or resin. Thanks!
  16. Hi, I found another pretty good looking mini on Indiegogo. Looks like a amazing sculpt of a vampire and her throne. I will probably be getting this soon. Getting a really awesome Lilliana vibe. Of course the only downside is the 54 EUR price. Idk so far this and scale 75 have comparable prices. IMO I prefer this one, also this one comes a little faster if on time. There is also a chance to get the other works that Michael Kontraros has made ..... for 150 EUR. I do like the Elf Dragon Prince. http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/vampire-queen-miniature-by-michael-kontraros-collectibles
  17. hi people i been painitng for a few months now but thought i would post a few pics on here and see what people think. this is my first ever mini was actually impressed with myslef on this with it being my first. well apart from the face any way
  18. Hey everyone! This is my first try ever at painting a miniature, and also my very first post. I can't believe the talent some of you guys have, and I'll practice hard to hone my skills and share some more miniatures. This is turning out to be a lot of fun, and I can't wait to paint again! Please give me your opinion, and if you have tips on how to improve, don't be shy. I used basic craft acrylics plus matte and gloss sealers, no airbrush (can't afford it, meh).
  19. figure made ​​of "magic sculpt"
  20. I tried to post this under the Shutterbug section, but it wouldn't let me add pics.... here we go! Okay, so this is what I ended up with. I think this is pushing the camera to its limits. I had the chance to go to Lowe's today and pick up 2 8.5" clip lights and 2 Ott light bulbs rated at 1500 lumens a piece. I set the clip on lights at approx. 45 degrees to the models, and set an Ott table lamp overhead. These are pics of minis I've already completed, but under the best set up I've been able to manage. There's not much more I can do to improve on these pics so... What do you think? P.S.: It looks like one of Jazzy's hairs snuck onto the fleece backdrop... It's amazing what you don't notice until you blow these things up! LOL! Bladesinger Front Bladesinger Left Bladesinger Rear Bladesinger Right Phoebe vs. Varaug Group Shot of ALL My Minis...
  21. Sorry about the delay folks, had some issues to take care of on the home front , and hadnt had a chance to get this months proof written up. This challenge will be a little longer as a result, but requires a tiny bit more work on your guys part to get full credit for the themed entry achievement. This months challenge will stretch until the end of May, and yes there will be a separate challenge for May. April's challenge is derived from one of my favorite horror authors of all time, H.P. Lovecraft. Your mission should you accept it is to read one of Lovecrafts short stories, tell us about it, and then write your own short story using the Cthulhu Mythos as a primer, you are free to create new monstrosities and heroes as you see fit. The short story should be a minimum of 2,000 words, and should have at least 1 scene in which the hero/heroine confronts a monstrosity, the rest is left up to you. The top entries will be published on the blog on our website. So don't forget to grammar and spell check your work. Now your thinking , I thought this was a painting challenge, and your right it is. The second portion of this challenge is to create a small scene from the story you just wrote, utilizing whichever monstrosity you had decided to use and the hero/heroine that you had face it. More likely than not , there is no miniature that exists that will accurately represent your monstrosity, so we encourage you to make use of the boneyard on Reapers store to create it yourself, and don't forget the greenstuff, you'll be needing it. Note that monstrosities are complex , usually grotesque interdimentional beings, so please refrain from implementing simple monsters as your monstrosity.(ie, no zombies, vampires , werewolves or their ilk), dont get me wrong, you can implement these types of creatures into your story, but they don't count as a monstrosity on their own. All painted entries are excepted regardless of whether they fit the theme or not , and still garnish points. If you earn the themed entry achievement , by following the instructions laid out above , you will be granted an additional 200% bonus towards your points. A list of all the possible achievements can be found on our website by visiting the painter standings page, a link to our website is listed in our signature below . The challenge will run from now until midnight on June 1st, 2013. And remember everybody, these challenges are meant to be fun and rewarding , so enjoy yourself.
  22. Fellow hobbyists, tabletop gamers, and rpg fans, Firstly I'd like to introduce myself as I am new to the forums. My name is Paul and i like painting and building miniatures and terrain along with designing game systems. If anyone is on the miniwargaming forums, board of the living lead, dakka dakka, or rpg net i go by the same name [oddeye]. This may be a unusual post in the WIP section as most people are posting up only painted miniatures, I am posting up a work in progress of a entire game that I have been creating in my free time over the last 8 months (100% free to download, i do ask for any feedback that you may have though so i can improve on the rules, link is provided below). As the title states my game is based around surviving hordes of zombies with many different armies available with a fantasy and modern version, some armies available to play are: us army, ww2 wehrmact, survivors, knights, hordes of undead, zombies, pirates, dragons, and samurai just to name a few. There are many pictures of fully painted miniatures, custom terrain and artwork along with some youtube videos already available for your viewing pleasure. I am also working on a full role playing pen and paper version as well based off the table top war game versions. You can download the rules here for free and there is also a link to scribed.com to view the rules online if you don't want to download. There are also many posts with pictures and miniature links in the other sections of the community page. https://plus.google.com/communities/108863897726135327206/stream/96e11d1b-6e44-4604-9860-5929bcc4f8ac Youtube channel with videos https://www.youtube.com/user/Scheitelpunkt If you are interesting in joining the google community or subbing to the youtube channel feel free to do so, I really am looking for good feedback, comments, and ideas to help improve the game system and rule book. I appreciate all feedback good or bad! Thanks and happy gaming!
  23. Hey everybody, just wanted to give you guys a quick update on whats going on over here, before we jump into the miniature challenge segment. We are nearing completion of our first set of sculpts for our commissions and out online store. Also we recently purchased out very own pressure casting chamber and we have all the mold making materials on order. As we begin winding down the February Miniature Challenge, with just over 4 hours left to submit. We would like to thank all of you who participated , you did a wonderful job on your entries, and we will begin grading them soon. Within the next few days you should see your name and the amount of points you have earned, appear on our website, under the painter standings. Link in signature. We would now like to announce the theme for the March Miniature Challenge. This month your challenge is to paint up a miniature to represent your favorite console RPG videogame character. Whether it be Cloud from Final Fantasy 7, or your favorite character from the Dragon Quest series or any other Japanese RPG. We wish you all luck and cannot wait to see the entries start flooding in. Please note that characters licensed by any D&D game do not qualify for the theme of a video game character, the idea behind these contests is not to just paint a mini, it is to creatively interpret a miniature to represent a character that it clearly is not. (ie: cloud and link are acceptable entries, Drizzt and Conan are not) if you are in doubt , ask before you start an entry. If you decide to go against this rule, you will still get points , however they will be greatly reduced. If for whatever reason, you are not a fan of console RPG videogames, you may choose a character from any other videogame you like. And remember to take plenty of pictures of your progress, and provide a picture reference to the character you are painting. For complete rules and guidelines please follow the link below. http://www.rpgstandard.com/apps/blog/show/23179761-rpgstandard-s-challenge-rules-and-guidelines All submissions are due before midnight on April 1st Good Luck and Happy Painting!
  24. Hello everyone! I am new to this forum and my name is Matt. I have a question that maybe some of you that have experience can hopefully help me with. I want to purchase the "Technic League Captain" mini from the Pathfinder series (link below) This model really has the look i was going for with one of my characters. The only problem is that he is bald. My character has long hair. What ways would i go about sculpting and attaching long hair to this character? I have painted before but iv'e never sculpted or modified anything. Hopefully someone can give me some advice. Thank you =) http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Pathfinder/sku-down/60113
  25. I am back with another miniature figure question. Does anyone (except for Black Cat Bases) make a modern era male photographer miniature figure (prefer standing) with a modern SLR camera? Black Cat Bases makes an ideal figure (male photographer = bcblswp 1)...but I have sent them (5) email messages over the past 10 days and have not received any reply from them. I have also searched for dealers in the USA who might carry that figure and have had no success. Is there any other miniature company in the USA that makes such a figure? I am also seeking a sitting miniature figure (male or female) who I can have sitting in my (one holer) privy at the open air farmers market & renaissance fair game board project that I am currently working on...some kind of sitting human with their head sort of down (sitting on the throne in contemplation)!!!
