  1. Hi guys! My friend and I stopped by for the paint and take at Reaper's booth at PAX Unplugged and painted our first minis. Any and all constructive criticism welcome, we did the best we could in the limited time we had at the table (45-50 minutes). We definitely wish we had more time, more paint choices, and maybe a couple more brushes, but it was great fun. I'll definitely be painting more in the near future. Without further ado here they are (mine in blue, friend's in red) We didn't really know what to do with the faces, and I was definitely having trouble figuring out what went to what/what was a seperate thing. I like how my friend did the loincloth two seperate colors. I also liked his bronze sword color. Thanks for looking!
  2. 77596 Sandy the Mummy Bones

    So it's been forever and a day since I've painted a Reaper figure, and I've never painted a Chibiesque mini before. On Facebook though, my wife saw a painted version of this delightful little big headed mummy and told me how much she liked the figure so that got me to hunt it down and paint it for her. It was nice because being a face and rags, it really didn't take too long to do, I think from beginning of painting to end, not including the base was probably five hours. I went more green on his face than the greys I've seen in most of his renditions just for something a little bit different and I didn't want to make his bandages too, too dirty, so tried to still leave them with a linen or cream color. Anyhoos, here he is, enjoy!
  3. Bones Mummy Captain

    As I said before, I finally have a camera (well, it's actually my wife's new smart phone) that can take reasonable pictures of miniatures. Now I just have to learn how to take good pictures (and learn how to paint ...). Here is the Bones Mummy Captain. As always, I'm aiming for tabletop standard as playing with the miniatures is the first goal. I should probably start doing more/better highlights (any other CC welcome).
  4. Mummy #77144

    The undead are always fun and easy to paint. Id like to accumulate more varieties in the future. This mummy practically painted himself.
  5. Bones Mummy - 77144

    Hi guys. I've been away for a long time, but I finally did a quick something to shake off the cobwebs and get putting paint on something again. Just a quick mummy. I started with a thin base of Vallejo Ivory, then Army Painter Strong Tone over everything. I did some highlights with Reaper Stained Ivory, then mixed some Vallejo Ivory in for a lighter shade for higher highlights. Plus of course the detail work, the green eyes and the darker flesh bits. I like the teeth I put at the edges of his mouth. I tried to make his hands bonier and whiter along with some other exposed bones but don`t like how they turned out, I might pull them back a little darker later. I think the gray primer is also showing through the sand on his base but I'm not worried about that.
  6. Auberon's 2017 Summer Exchange

    My partner this time around was SamuraiJack, so if you haven't check your mail yet stop reading! I'll edit in some tags later, but for now no spoilers!
  7. Grenadier Mummy

    This mummy was hungry when he woke up. He is now snacking on the poor adventurer who woke him. He is making a mess on the mable floor of his tomb as he is tracking the blood around and dribbling on the floor. The pose was a bit strange with one hand held up and one hand near his face, so I tried to make sense of it by putting a big bloody hunk of meat in his outstretched hand. It's a bit gratuitous, but I'm ok with some gratuitous gore once in a while. If I ever use it in a D&D game, he is definitely tearing someone's arm off on a "natural 20."
  8. I tried taking a Zen of Bones approach to this bunch (Thanks Buglips!). These are part of my 4 year olds "Toy Box" minis. I only took lage flash off and pretty much pretended that tne mold lines don't exist. They got a zenithal prime and the 4 year old painted the bodies. I painted faces, clothes and bases. These were treated with Army Painters mid tone quickshade (first time using it). I then played with my static flock generator which worked fine on the mummy bases (which I didn't catch in the photos), but was sad on the Ghast bases. either way they look good enough IRL. Photos are poor as I didn't put much effort in them either. Enjoy! And before the quick shade.
  9. A little something I picked up from my FLGS's discount bin; this 54mm scale mummified minotaur comes with a choice of horns and pole-cleavers to attach to an otherwise simple assembly. Here are the parts laid out before priming. I still struggle to decide which horns and weapon to build him with. Using one means not using the other, after all, but I figure they'll find another place to go eventually.
  10. Tut - Chibi - 01546

    I am presently working through the Chibi's from Reaper I have collected. This is the first to be completed in 2017. I present to you TUT #01546. I need to get better at eyes though especially for these Chibi's.. any suggestions, guidance or critique would be appreciated.
  11. 02885 Khalith, Mummy Lord

    One I did just for fun. He was a cool model, and lots of fun to paint - just the right amount of detail. He helped in working on my NMM, and OSL and this is my 4th 'real' attempt for both. It turned out not too bad. Ugh....I just realized I need to fix up the back of the sword....
  12. Universal Movie Monsters

    I had this idea to paint these guys up in grey. Wanted them to look like they stepped right off the celluloid. The vampire, mummy, Frankenstein's monster and wolfman are all Reaper minis. The Creature from the Black Lagoon is a Four A Miniature. The coffin I got from a pack of Halloween decorations from Michael's Craft Store.
  13. Really just gave him a decent weapon. I think he looks the part.:
  14. Chosen of Sokar, Nefsokar Sergeant 14164

    This is the finished product of my work in progress here. The model should have taken me about a month or so to paint, but the work in progress pushed me to work on it more often. Just about every night I did something with it. The first base I painted was a premade resin base. However, his legs were too spread apart to fit properly, so I made this one myself. Used a bunch of my modeling clay which was not cheap, but I figured it was worth the effort. I actually liked the work in progress forum. People were very supportive and gave nice ideas. So a big thanks to those that followed my short journey there and I think I will return in the future. Without further adieu...
  15. I got at least one request to do a work in progress for my next model........so here I am :) Not sure how I feel about WIP posting. I sort of like the surprise of seeing a mini for the first time posted finished. We shall see what happens. ...and yes, that is a robotic thumb I have. some of my implants may be called cheating by some, but I say there is no crying in miniature painting! Get your own robotic appendages. Based skin and some shadowing. My eyes are having trouble seeing where skin ends and cloth begins. This is not going to be an easy mini. My own wash concoction. Happy with the experiment, exactly what I wanted which rarely happens. painting the bandages and started on some metals. Usually colors are easy for me, but the painted mini I was looking at for reference has relatively the same colors I would have gone with. Sooooo...trying to picture some other scheme in my head since I don't want a copy of what was already done. Either I have a master plan or I am avoiding certain areas that I don't want to paint yet. Not sure about the metallic purple armor trim either. I know the purple armor trim on the leg has got to go. Still not sure about the shoulders, I kinda like it. On his back, the purple brings out the eye of Horus design nicely. Things don't always go as planned. I spent a lot of time painting that weapon and just could not get what I wanted. I like it as gold more. At leas you get to see what might have been. After that I'm Almost there. The sash up front and tied around his waist. Some touching up, sealing and then it will be on to painting up a nice base. Finished Painting the model, time to work on a base. Oh man, at the foot of the stairs! Big blob of putty with some freehand sculpting, some recycled stands made into stairs (which I am a little regretting clipping his, because I could have jammed them into the putty instead of using other items to keep him steady while the glue and putty did their trick) and some rocks glued on. a few more steps and I should it should be complete.
  16. Put your left hand in Put your left hand out Put your left hand in And shake it all about Do the hokey pokey and turn yourself about! That's what it's all about! Sigh. So I meant to get all these lovely Egyptian themed minis painted in October. In the end I only got the standard mummies done and the mummy warriors' bandages barely started. Looks like I already have my November painting challenge minis lined up. Completed pics of the rest hopefully next month.
  17. Here are 2 quick photos, individual photos to come. Started on my computer because the phone is taking some getting used to.
  18. So I picked the mummy horde to paint up something quick, but it ended up I spent a lot of time fiddling with them. I had hoped to do just a quick base color, some drybrushing, voila, done. But alas that was not to be. Finally done, they are not that great, but they will work fine as undead opponents for any desert faring party. The only metal one (Reaper 2156), slightly reposed: 3 of the Bones ones (77144), with annoying flash lines still there: And the group shots:
  19. I was doing home remodeling and was self-exiled from my home and paint desk for over two months, so when I got access to my hobby room and paint desk and reorganized, I collected all my unfinished projects on the desk and realized my shelf of shame had grown to unacceptable proportions. I decided to tackle finishing as many of these pieces just to get them off my desk before I move on, even if I speed paint them or cut steps, but I am tired of looking at too many primed-only or part painted minis. So here is the first wave: Mashaaf which was my favorite to paint among these, the bones mummy lich I had nearly finished six months ago, which was nice except had too soft details on the face, the Scibor elven ruins, Mega Miniatures pack mules I base coated two years ago, and some GriffinTamer terrain pieces. These are not my best work by far but I'm going to call them done for now to get them off my desk and maybe some day I will go back and add some more finishing touches.
  20. First time painter

    Hi Everyone! I'm extremely new to this. I've never tried my hand at painting as a hobby.. let alone miniature painting. But after Bones 3 funded, and my realization that I had several other mini games coming from KS at some point, I started gathering everything I needed to learn how to paint. I bought some stuff i didn't need, and some other stuff that I might need someday. After all the fiddling I wound up with a Reaper Bones: Learn to Paint Kit as a starting point. I had also bought a few bones (20ish random models) through an ebay sale to futz with. Tonight I started painting. I started at 8 and ended around midnight. I tried to follow the directions as close as possible... I made a lot of mistakes... I know they aren't even close to what you guys here can do, but i can't believe how these turned out as my first try! I started with the 77018: Skeletal Archer, and in my grab-bag of bones found a 77144: Mummy which i thought might share a similar palette (eh... kinda) I'm still working on a soft box setup so the lighting and focus are a bit off, but here's the result! The next two models in the kit look significantly harder than the Skele (77042: Orc Marauder, 77150: Ragnaros) but hopefully I can do them justice! If you have any comments or tips i'd really like to hear them! -K
  21. Bones Mummy Tabletop

    I didn't have a good weekend with the paints. Everything I tried to do seemed to not work. I finally ended up throwing in the towel on this guy, and glopping some paint on him. I will go back and base later when I'm not fed up with paint. C&C welcome.
  22. Mummy Lich 77147 Painted

    This weekend I completed the Mummy Lich from the Bones I "Who's Your Mummy" set. This wraps up that set for me, and next week I will be starting on the Heroes set. For the full painting step-by-step, see my Bones Painting blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/06/mummy-lich-figure-158-of-265.html
  23. 77145 Mummy Captain and an Introduction

    Hello everybody. I just joined the Forum today, and besides posting a pic of my latest painted figure, I wanted to make an introduction. Some of you know me from my "All Bones About It" Blog where I have been posting my efforts in painting all the figures I ordered from the Bones I Kickstarter, and more recently the Bones II one as well. I know a few of you have linked to my blog here before, and I thought it was about time I joined up here myself. :) I've been a gamer and figure painter since the 70's and some of you may know me as well as co-author of the "G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T." set of Victorian Science Fiction miniatures rules, as well as co-author of the Pirate skirmish rules, "Blood & Swash, Thunder & Plunder". Anyway, enough about me, on to the figure... This past week I completed figure 77145, the Mummy Captain. This is the third figure I've completed from the Who's Your Mummy set from the Bones I Kickstarter (The other two can be seen on my blog). I hope to complete the final figure from that set for posting next week. For a step--by-step on how I painted him, you can visit his entry on my blog: Mummy Captain
  24. 77144: Mummy

    I picked up this mummy, because it's different from what I've been painting. He was pretty simple and relatively quick compared to the huge pile of game minis that I've been trying to perfect. I typically have trouble going dark enough with my shadows. This time I just covered it in a color that felt way too dark, then lightened it back up with highlights. It's so much easier to try new things when you're not invested in the figure. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out and enjoyed painting him.
  25. 77144: Here Come The Mummies

    Tried a few different styles for these guys. I prefer the two on the left (if you ignore the horrible basing job I did on them).
