  1. This is Marshalla Sylvie from Freebooter Miniatures. In my Lost World she is Bonita, Half Pirate / Half Snake. I gave painted her base as if she was on driftwood in the water. Had fun with the Snake part and tried a little sheer on her blouse. WIP and Lost World Stories here http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=103 Enjoy:
  2. Finally finished my Kraken Diorama. Tough time lighting it sadly, to where it didn't glare >< but it came out pretty and it's done so I'm happy =) Only way I would have really liked to make it better is to be able to put it in resin but that'd be a bit much lol Most of my WIP is in my WIP thread, except that last stage where I added background panels (supposed to look like the sea under water, I'm not an artist lol) I was hoping to put more fish in but it started getting a little busier than I liked, and plus it was quite hard to show details on all the fish as well as the Kraken so I just put enough in for interest. Anyway, hope you like it =)
  3. Hey all, I thought I'd share a little guide on how I converted two Weapons and Warriors pirate ships for gaming. These guys are usually for sale at a reasonable price ($25-30) on ebay as part of the W&W Pirate Battle game. They have the added bonus of coming with two smaller boats and lots of good extras like cannons and palm trees. Here is the unmodified ship. First I clipped the little extra bits that are for the W&W game, and then I puttied over any gaps. Then I gave the whole ship a couple of coats of brown primer. For terrain and other projects like this, I usually use Krylon primer. It does just fine when there is not a lot of small details to obscure. I primed the sails white. The main mast, mizzen mast, and bowsprit all detach. I picked out some detail colors and painted the decks a lighter color. The ships turned out like this: The two small ships and the two boats in the foreground are from W&W. The big ship in the back is a resin model. If you are looking for some ships for your games, this might be the way to go!
  4. Underwater Adventuring Party

    Hello! I'm starting a new project, an underwater adventuring party. I've ordered a group of miniatures for it: I've been mostly painting Games Workshop stuff for the last few years, so I'm hoping this will be a nice change of pace.
  5. This is Miranda from Hasslefree. I am going to use her in my upcoming campaign as an NPC. She will be a major part of the story. I love this figure. She looks so melancholy. She is also tiny! Slightly shorter than your average Reaper girl but more slender and petite. I was not able to do irises in her eyes. The base will be mounted on a plinth eventually. I didn't have a clue what I was doing making her base so I wasn't sure she was actually going on there. I ended up liking it though so here she is. C&C welcome.
  6. So I decided to do a updated tutorial on doing a sea floor base! I started with my hippocampus. Things you'll need: Cork Green Stuff Wire WIre Cutters Sculpting Tools! Super Glue SO! To start with, you rip up chunks of coral and arrange the bottom layer how you wish it to look. Feel free to look up pictures of coral, you'll see that they are often in jagged clumps with little nooks and vallleys between them Now you add a second layer, similar to constructing a wedding cake or something, we're going for tiered levels with the upper levels smaller. Now you add smaller tops to a few places, for the higher points Now you take your wire cutters, and you start gouging pits and holes in the cork. You don't want it to be level or straight anywhere, so feel free to yank and rip as you please to get erratic, pitted shapes here it is after i've dug out pits Now you break out the green stuff, and start doing little coral against the cork. I tried an urchin out, my first time attempting to do one I've stuck some wires in that will be schools of fish, and added some more coral And uh...i kind of got distracted....but i did get the fish schools started! To do those, you roll little balls of green stuff and squish them on in an erratic pattern. It's not finished by far, this is just laying the ground work
  7. Do people know of lines of very small (two or three inches, max) model ships and boats for tabletop combat? Or have favorites? This isn't urgent, more of a "it would be nice" sort of thing. There's a game coming up likely to involve combat at sea, and actual little ships could help. We can, of course, use Star Trek Battles and X-Wing ships. Or dice, for that matter. But actual little ships would be fun. They don't have to be perfectly historic; fantasy or steampunk ships are okay too. Bonus points to anyone who knows where I can find a little paddlewheel steamship.
  8. Again not sure the right thread for this, sorry if I'm putting them in the wrong section. Baugi, you have created a monster, basing has now become a bit of an obsession. So my idea is this dude on a high cliff overlooking the ocean. How high should I make the cliff? Right now he seems huge. Thanks!
