  1. I started painting Dagon a few days ago. He's very much still in the beginning stages. All my paints are MSP unless otherwise specified. Here's what I've done so far: Washed and blue liner-ed and started a base coat of Marine Teal. Then a little more work on the fins with Twilight Purple, Gem Purple, and Amethyst Purple but they have a long way to go still.
  2. After some work WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61706-xherman1964-tries-to-paint-a-crocodile/ My Beloved of Sobek. A nice friendly Crocodile who wants nothing more then to hug you. I tried to copy the natural colours from a Nile Crocodile. Hope it worked. Base is a Resin Scenic Jungle Base from Microarts Studios, a mini in itself. A real joy to paint these two. Enjoy. He will also try to compete in a beauty contest. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/58879-2015-annual-contest-non-reaper-entries/?p=1148361
  3. Another monster for my Lost World Project Project here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/ This is a 15mm miniature from Demonworld, since it is really huge I use it for my 28mm project. That is a Microart Studio resin jungle base 3 x 2 inch! I tried to emulate the metallic sheen that some beetles have on this scorpion. Using different metallics and then some inks and black glazing. Enjoy. Likes and comments welcome,if you want to throw rotten tomatoes, report to the scorpion first for a "talk"
  4. So I've been pretty busy with work and other things and haven't had a chance to paint much lately. Got this guy as a gift from a friend and painted it up a couple of weeks ago. Pretty happy how everything turned out especially the eyes. I used some owl pictures for reference. Though usually their beaks are a dark grey, I wanted this to stand out a little more. Thanks for looking!
  5. This guy was several hours' work, finished him up earlier this evening! I may end up updating the pictures at some point, I'm still trying to figure out the optimal settings on the camera I used.
  6. Work has kept me very busy (I'm a first year teacher), so I haven't had much time to paint. I did slap some paint on this guy though.
  7. Used Tamiya clear blue to coat the Water Weird and Reaper paints for the well and highlights.
  8. Last night, after tiring of video games, I decided to speed paint a basilisk over a glass (or two) of Port. Now @Beagle may instruct you that fine English gentlemen do not speed paint with Port, but my family hasn't had to worry about what those guys think in a couple of centuries. I can even drink my Port out of a coffee mug if I desire. But I digress. The only real failure here is that my sealer has frosted the shadows a bit. It was more vibrant before that little mishap, but the non-painter is unlikely to notice the difference. Also, edge-highlighting the one in the middle works reasonably well.
  9. So I finished this guy up in between working on the couple of other WIPs I have going. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out. I didn't spend as much time on this one as I normally do for highlights and details. I definitely stole the idea for the blue eyes off the painted picture on the reaper store. The base is a secret weapons lava base. Instead of lava I gave it some rusty pools of water using realistic water.
  10. Some little friends ........for dangerous adventures Cheers Eric
  11. Hi everyone, it is my great pleasure today to show you my 02712, Eyebeast. It was sculpted by Julie Guthrie and can also be found in the 10031, Dungeon Horrors Box Set. I added tthe eyestalks on each side of its head. The eyestalks are from Reaper Miniatures 03440, Creature Components II. I intend to add some drool dripping from its maw. It should also be part of a diorama of horrors I have in mind.
  12. Here is my 02737, Dung Monster. It was sculpted by Jason Wiebe and can also be found in the 10031, Dungeon Horrors Box Set. Since it's the second time I paint this model, I added four tentacles around its maw to make it look different. The tentacles are from 03334, Creature Components. Here is the LINK to the other one I painted in 2009.
  13. Basecoated this guy to figure out what color scheme i wanted to do. I rather like the olive and red
  14. While waiting for water effects to dry (more boring than paint) I finished up a couple minis that have been on the desk for a while. His one here is a favorite. Got all rainbow inspired when painting up a great worm. This was the first mini where I'd used the sand/gravel and glue mix to "sculpt" a base. Had lots of rocks to stick into it as it dried. After a dark primer and light drybrush, I liked the look of it so much I didn't want to paint over it for a few months. Well I finally brought it back to the painting desk about a month ago and have been hitting the rocks with various leftover Browns and grays. I was not entirely happy with he underside until I thought to drybrush a fleshy color (suntan flesh) and it really did it for me. What do you think?
  15. The King's Man is a nemesis encounter from Monster. He'll show up and ruin your day at the ol' settlement. Mostly assembled (left off the scabbard and plume for now, experiment in painting a disassmbled model!), pinned and primed.
  16. Here is a conversion I did for a Migo warrior in my Call of Cthulhu game The body was a Reaper Warlord miniature: 14456: Mastema, Darkspawn Demon. The head was from Rebel miniatures, I think the figure was called a terror mite. The wings were something from a long time ago. buckyball
  17. Another lazy painting day with my wonderful husband produced this. I grabbed this guy out of the Vampire box not really knowing what to make of it. Even after boiling it didn't seem to stand well on any combination of the 6 legs, so I posed it on 3 of the rear legs that touched the base, kind of like it was rearing up in front. I wanted the legs to be black and beetle-like, with some blue green sheen, and I wanted the upper portion to reflect the "oxidation" part of the name. I just started dabbing paint on until it looked good. Since it has a little of every color in the spectrum, I refer to it as the the eastern lesser rainbow bug.
  18. ThesHunter had an idea for a challenge. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72805-80036-shipping-container-unofficial-painting-contest/ So I took these parts, and added some green stuff. https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/container/sku-down/80036 https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/tentacle/sku-down/77367 https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/nightstick/sku-down/50191 https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/natalia/sku-down/50149 I discussed this with some forumites. Got some great ideas and...
  19. As I've been creating my own set of Chibi Kingdom Death minis, I've found that some of the monsters have such bizarre proportions that there's no need to convert them into chibis. Overall, my approach is to have the minis become less distorted and cute as they get larger (the way that Final Fantsy, Pokemon and Super Dungeon Explore do things). So, a lot of the very large monsters don't need to be altered. Instead, I try to paint them in vibrant colors that really let them pop out. I also create the bases using chibi faces rather than the normal ones. So, here is my Sunstalke. I de-emphasized the nudity in the painting of it, but since I didn't actually re-sculpt the Kingdom Deathy bits, it is linked: http://www.gardenninja.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/Kingdom-Death/sunstalker-1.JPG?i=642091509
  20. The blending of green and yellow was challenging on this mini. I added some plastic tiles on the ground to create a ruined dungeon atmosphere. It was sculpted by Gene Van Horne.
  21. I needed another large monster for my Lost World Project. WIP and Stories here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/ This time I painted the Ral Partha T-Rex. Based her on a resin Jungle base from Micro Art Studios, it has some nice touches like a conquistadore's skull, frogs and a lizard. I named her Trixy. Hope you like her:
  22. Greetings! I've had this Reaper Bones Hydra (77191) sitting around for quite a while now, waiting for me to pluck up the will & time to paint it. I'm quite a slow painter by nature & I had set myself a rule that where all my present & future Bones minis are concerned, I wasn't going to worry about removing mould lines (I love Bones but I find this particular job is a nightmare!) or going into too much painting detail but this all fell by the wayside in the end! Anyway, here it is. Following the Hydra's mythology, I've gone with aquatic colours, the base was created using Basius's Dungeon base stamp, I made a point of putting one foot lower on the steps as the front legs were a bit uneven (even after the hot & cold water torture method!). Comments & critiques are always welcome, thanks for looking!
  23. I created this monster from a mix of bones (eyebeast, mockingbeast, harpy, nightspectre, ape demon, bed,) hands from the kingdom death phoenix, sculpey, green stuff and plasticard. I have a WIP here. This was a great deal of fun to sculpt and involved a lot of scary background music to get me in the mood. As a kid, I had an overactive imagination, so I can completely empathize with the kid under the blankets. I even tried to fool the monster under my bed once by dropping a pillow off the back of the bed while I made a flying leap for the lightswitch by the door! Enjoy!! C&C always welcome, and I'm happy to answer any questions. I'll be bringing this fellow with me to Reapercon, so feel free to come pick him up and look closer! Also, if there's anything that doesn't look right, let me know- I still have time to fiddle with it.
  24. Okay, here we go. I have this lovely Warpwolf Stalker, which I painted a while ago. I have, since I leveled up a bit, revisited the stalker. Here is the original picture: Here is the current front view (and other views) I'm really happy with the extension of what I have done with him, and I'm much happier with the figure as a whole. Any C&C is welcome, but I think I improved significantly from the initial painting to the reworking I've done on this one. C&C is welcome on this one.
  25. This weekend I finished up the Griffon figure from the Bones 1 Kickstarter. As some of you may know, I have been chronicling the painting of all the figures I received from the Bones 1 Kickstarter on my All Bones About It Blog. Well, completing the Griffon puts me on the threshold of the final ten figures of this endeavor. The Griffon being done, figure 256 of 266 figures, leaves just 10 figures left for me to paint. I was hoping I could get done by the time Bones 3 arrives, and with the delay in shipping it looks like a real possibility. For the full Griffon step-by-step painting article, please see: Griffon
