  1. I made more progress on my Zombicide Survivors. Here is number 4: Amy. I wasn't comfortable with painting up the fishnets from the artwork, so I went with lite pink. Otherwise I went for close to art work. As with my other models, I went with no blood on the survivors. Only problem is the blade couldn't be straightened perfectly, but she is for gaming, so good enough. Here is Amy: Thanks for looking and any C&C you feel like giving.
  2. 28mm Tabletop Terrain is Hayland Terrain's 1st Kickstarter to fund a range off modern day setting terrain STL Files, they will be perfect for any zombie, post-apoc and modern warfare games.

  3. This is a Heroclix figure (Lex Corp Security if you're interested) that i got out of a Box of Goodwill. She was a quick and easy repaint, I liked the colors they used, so I just fixed them up so they weren't slopped all over each other. I figure she'll work well in modern, zombie, and possibly near future/ sci-fi games as a secret agent or something like that. I tried to paint her sunglasses to look as though they were reflecting the sky; does it work or does it look lousy? Be honest, please.
  4. I've had this guy finished since last year. I couldn't decide how to do the base so I went with a grey. If I come up with an idea I'll fix it later, but for now I call it done enough to hit the game board. I present to Survivor Phil the Cop. As a note pictures are quite as good as some in the past. I don't currently have access to camera I've been using and these were taken with my tablet.
  5. I picked up Hasslefree's "Post Apoc Gang" in my first order from them last month (when they had a 21% off sale). Thought I'd make a thread to track my progress as I work my way through the team. The gang, from the HF website: I've started work on the first of the crew, "Wolsey" aka Shaggy. Mostly just making sure that I'm getting the colours right at this point, and I'm pretty happy with them, but holy moly that brown on the pants had terrible coverage. Soooo many coats required, but it looks decent now. The base has a coat of Vajello sandy paste with a couple of small rocks added; I'm going for a "wasteland" look rather than a ruined urban look. There's a small patch where the base's slot is still noticeable, but I think I'll end up covering it with a tuft later on.
  6. We're running a sci-fi Savage Worlds campaign right now, so figured it was a good time to start painting up some of the moderns, especially for some NPCs. Since I have duplicates of a few of them, I did quite a few in a desert/marine/army type paint scheme (olive skin triad) and the other guys in a more police gray/blue scheme. The faces on Garvin Markus, Nova Corp Hero didn't turn out quite as well as I would have liked but since these are just baddies I moved on. I don't see these painted too often on the show-off, so hopefully this will help anyone else who had these on their plate. Thanks for reading, comments and criticism are always appreciated!
  7. Needed to paint a back up character for my savage worlds campaign, so picked Sascha Dubois. I wanted to make her a bit more modest than the bikini top wearing miniature (don't need it getting weird at the gaming table) so I carved her belly button off and the middle line of her abdomen and painted over as if she's just wearing a regular top. I like the idea of her as a captain or pilot of some sort, she appears to have a telescope or looking glass hanging off her waist, and I decided it was definitely a compass she was holding. Hair was the fire red / phoenix red / fire orange triad and the ultraviolet blue for the coat. Some of the best eyes I've done in a while, the miniature still retains a lot of detail on the face such that painting on her eyebrows was possible (a step I usually don't bother with). Thanks for reading, comments, criticism and suggestions are always welcome!
  8. This is one of a pot-luck batch of modern adventurer women figures I got from RAFM, a real mixed bag. Some of them are terrific, some ... kind of goofy. This one seems to fall a bit closer to the goofy end. She is in a pose my martial arts friend called "Kill Me Now", and her face is rather unfortunately flattened front-to-back. I figured I'd paint her up quickly tabletop style for use as a mook or opponent. I did get a little bored painting her just plain, though, so I gave her Goth-Egyptian makeup.
  9. So I received my Harwood Hobbies cultists miniatures. I decided to try and make a warband out of them:[spoiler photo to come] Mr Karswell: Sigilist Ritual Leader: Apprentice 3 axe cultists+ executioner=melee/thugs the enforcer (w/ machinegun)= ranged I have a few more slots, so I'll need to see what other cultist minis I have, and whether they fit. Maybe I'll add Bones 3 cultists, or my Crooked Dice cultists I suppose I may choose some other school than sigilist, it's just that with the spellbooks, they LOOK like sigilists. I wish summoning weren't an opposed school, however. And also, just in case, I'll be doing a 2 priest setup as well, they make more sense as sigiists (also with books) leaving the cultists as a summoner warband.
  10. Here is the 2nd installment in my group of survivors from Season 1 of Zombicide with Josh the Thug. I had to remind myself as I painted that it is only a gaming piece. The side view shows his machete, the piece I decided was good enough from table top. My first installment was Wanda.
  11. One of my gaming group gave me this to paint ages ago and I forgot about it. Found it as I am packing things to move. As I haven't had time to paint much as I try to balance my time between working and packing/moving between homes three hours from each other. Decided on this long weekend in Australia to do a little speed paint. Isn't perfect. But am pretty happy for a couple of hours work.
  12. For my upcoming Savage Worlds Mystery Men game I needed some Disco Boys for bad guys. I painted these up real quick, I need a bunch more. I gave this photo a "Grindhouse" look...
  13. New York Bop by Ghetto Miniatures is getting relaunched on the 1st May, after coming so close to funding first time around, hopefully with a restructured campaign they will fund this time round. New York Bop is a tabletop skirmish game set in the 1970s, gangs battle it out over a campaign map of the New York City boroughs or just in one-off games. There are 4 starter gangs to choose from, with various pledges ranging from just PDF rules to create your own gang member. Il post the start time once it has been determined by Ghetto Miniatures.

  14. USPS tracking has been a bit uneven for me this time around, but it lists a delivery time of today and has been in the correct town since 4:30am, so I'm going to call it good. It was marked as delivered while I was typing this. If however you go by SGHawkins09 and haven't picked up your mail today, stop reading and savor the anticipation for a bit.
  15. Hi, I had some free time and painted few survivors from zombicide 3. Very nice sculpts, not only in board games category. 150 minis left:) zombicide is a big game.
  16. Presenting Edna, Craaaaazy Cat Lady! I had a lot of fun painting this mini, it's got some great details such as her crabby expression, the fluffy slippers, the rollers in her hair etc. I've been a bit self-indulgent here as I have immortalised my own cat twice in this mini (the one Edna is carrying & the one rolling on its back) & most of the others are cats I've known or looked after . The cats were very tricky to paint as they are so small - I had to paint them while they were still attached to their sprue. The tiled floor was created quite simply using air drying clay with grout lines etched into it. Thanks for looking, c&c's welcome!
  17. Since I sacrificed Max's twin to make John Wick (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62332-john-wick-max-decker-50051-heavily-modified-picture-heavy/), I decided I should make things right and paint up Max in his pristine state as well. Maybe he will get to be in a Savage World one-shot sometime.
  18. A tribute to the best movie of last year, and probably my favorite movie of all time: John Wick (with Keanu Reeves)! Though I have a weakness for action movies in general, and assassin/hitman/spy on revenge spree movies particularly . These are the minis that gave their life for John Wick: Body from 50051: Max Decker, Private Eye ($5.99) Hand with Gun from 50010: Daniel Sterling, Secret Agent of GUARD ($4.99) Other Hand from http://www.reapermin...rn/latest/80009 Head from http://www.reapermin...rd/latest/89028 Before paint: Reference pics: And finally, the paintjob! Edited for spelling
  19. I painted her to resemble a certain female superhero who should get her own movie!! My best hair yet I think.
  20. This is Female Boss with Hard Hat from Miniature Building Authority. I did give her a blouse, the original was less modest. So this one was painted for you, my fellow female engineers!
  21. I am thinking of running a modern one-shot Savage World adventure in a few weeks, so I painted up up Sheriff Joe to be one of the player characters. I feel embarrassed I did not see the backwards lean on this mini until I took the photos.
  22. I spotted this set and got it originally for the woman in the slinky circa. 1930 gown, not yet realizing that it had two other great figures as well. RAFM sells three-packs of adventurers for "Call of Cthulhu" showing a progression: first the person in his or her civilian life, then out on the hunt for otherworldly horrors, then gone mad with the horror. They are kind of mixed in quality, but have a certain charm. I did not paint these as a progression of one character, but as three separate women: A society dame, a sporty modern young woman from the Indian Raj, and a madwoman out on the moors -- or tidal flats of New England, anyway. There are lots of fun details with these three. I tried to paint the madwoman's slip as transparent. It's eau-de-nil, an extremely fashionable color in the 1920s. Her feet and arms are supposed to look a little grubby. I added gloves to the society lady since no lady would be out barehanded at the time (her furs really should be a wrap around the back, not be two separate pieces; I think the artist did not have a visual reference for her back). And the sportswoman's boot is resting on a block carved with the most wonderful tentacled thing, although I did not paint it as clearly as I would like. The bases of the society woman and the madwoman were a little small for stability, so I glued them to pennies. I didn't do anything fancy with the society woman's base, but I added painted foliage and rocks to the madwoman's. The madwoman's base can be seen from above in this post: http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/49565-i-hate-to-base-so-i-painted-them-instead/
  23. So for my RPChallenge this month, I went a little light (but much bigger and better things in store next month) 3x of the Dragon's Teeth and 1x Jersey Barrier from expansion set 3. I probably had the most fun "battle damaging" them like they just took a hit from some sort of larger gun. Each of the dragon's teeth has the damage done slightly differently.
  24. Here is Hasslefree's Kitty mini that I intended to enter into a Hasslefree contest last year, but work got in the way. Her arm fell off twice and the first time I glued it back on I got glue all over her stomach area, so that also dampened my enthusiasm on finishing her on time. I think the jeans turned out nice, the skin, not so much.
  25. Here are some cool PDF files for basing: News Papers, Magazines, Beer Cans, Waning Signs On page 55: more News Papers, Magazines, Cans, DVD's and others Oh, important, on page 54 you can see how you can make Coke Cans with a Q-Tip!!!!
