    Ancient Skeleton horde (photo heavy)

    After ~6 months of not being able to work on projects, I present my first finished project of 2018- an ancient skeleton horde! The goals of the project were to: (1) Start out with a bang in my goal to paint 52 minis this year (2) Add a good deal more skeletons for horde encounters in an upcoming tabletop RPG I am running (3) Get more practice with OSL in a setting that allowed me to try multiple techniques on similar models quickly (eyes) (4) Try my hand at verdigris, again trying multiple techniques to see what I like best (5) Try out doing weapons/armor chipping and weathering. Happy to say all 5 goals were met (just took a long time)! This was a tabletop-level project, so while they aren't perfect, they are "good enough". Please let me know what you think- I relish C&C as it is a critical step in making me a better painter. I also have a question: I need to seal these guys. I want to use a matte sealer for the skeletons themselves (you can see the gloss from where I used quickshade), but I don't want to dull the metals on the arms and armor. What matte brush on sealers does everyone prefer? Thanks for looking!

    Skellyman army (wargames factory)

    Hi everyone! So looking back at 2017, I am absolutely ashamed to see that I had only completed 5 (five! Only five!) Miniatures this year. Granted, I didn't have access to my painting stuff until April, and had five major life events happen this year both good and bad. The minis I did complete I am very happy with, and I did really push myself to get better and learn some new techniques. I also started about 30 miniatures that have not been finished, so I did more painting than it seems. When looking at my paint desk it has become apparent that I have far, far too many unfinished projects- including a few from more than four years ago. Therefore I have 3 goals for 2018: 1) paint 52 miniatures within the calendar year. Any stand alone miniature counts. 2) of these 52, complete at least one CAV force to bring to reapercon 2018. 3) complete two unfinished miniatures before starting a new miniature. In that vein, I have started my resolution a little early: These are 20 skeletons from wargames factory I assembled and primed this summer, but never finished as I had airbrush problems. Tonight in about 2 hours I blocked them in woodstain brown and began dry brushing with terrah khaki- a nice bone color by the way! My intention is the shade and highlight them, then arm them. I want to use these guys as an excuse to try verdigris... I am very excited to see how it turns out. If i get these guys done I'll already be more than a third of the way to 52 miniatures. Wish me luck and expect more update soon!
  4. I created a little Graveyard. The Crypt and the Raven are resin models from Minimonsters, the Skeleton rising from the grave is 02043 from Reaper. The Tombstones and Fence are from the Reaper Bones III Graveyard Set. The pathway was made with Milliput and I used the Greenstuffworld Cobblestone Rollerpin on it. Enjoy! Likes, comments and job offerings to lead Undead Hordes welcome! WIP Here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79298-children-of-the-grave-by-glitterwolf/&page=6

    Skeleton Regiment

    This is a 20 man (well, 17 with a unit filler) unit of skeletons that I'm working on for possible use in Kings of War. It's composed of figures by a lot of different manufacturers including Reaper, Ral Partha, GW, Grenadier, Mage Knight, and WOTC. I'm using all the different makers and scales to try and make an interesting looking unit composed of more than just human remains. I am an equal opportunity, non racially biased necromancer, after all. This will be kind of a slow burn project; I'm not in any major rush to finish these for a game any time soon. This will be something to work on in between other projects. There will be conversions, and different paint jobs for the skellies; again in an effort to make a more interesting looking group. Here's the unit all together: What would be more interesting; making individual show off threads as I finish 2 or 3 figures, or just putting the finished figures in here and then doing a show off for the whole unit once it's complete?

    Morty, the Cute Reaper - by Cyr

    I was miserably ill last month. Gargling razor blades, everything hurt, and I could barely think. So I painted Death. But he's cute death, and I didn't really care if I fudged up a Bones chibi. I kinda hate painting skeletons, but eh, it was a relaxing paint job. Lots of "woulda shoulda coulda" on making the paint blend smoother, go for more contrast... blah blah. I was sick and decided to taunt Death a little by putting in less than 100% effort on him. Not too shabby for a figure that I may end up flinging on the table willy nilly.

    Grenadier Skeleton Command

    A pair of skeletons from Grenadier packaged in 1992, item #3123: Skeleton Command. The first mini was my first time trying to use basing materials. The attempt dissuaded further experimentation for now. They weren’t going to be based at first, but the standard bearer turned out to be dangerously top-heavy. Didn’t have any better ideas, so I went with trying to make them look rusted by following Sirithiliel’s guide: I hope they turned out okay. Comments and critiques appreciated!
  8. For my Children of the Grave Project I'm building a Gothic style Undead army with some Demon allies. Here is the Necropolis Command Group I will use as a Command for a regiment later. WIP http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79298-children-of-the-grave-by-glitterwolf/&

  10. Last year my life became so chaotic that I stopped painting for several months. After painting prolifically over the summer, my fall semester sucked out my soul and nothing brought me joy. Thankfully that painful semester is behind me, and now I can devote more time to hobbies and happiness. However, I felt nervous about starting again (don't know why) and I struggled to put paint to brush. I decided that what I needed was a crash course in painting and a Pathfinder campaign I just started needed skeletons. So I jumped in and decided to do a quick paint job on these four minis. I spent perhaps an hour total on each from start to finish. I know these are not spectacular, and I know that I cannot dry-brush for the life of me, but I am happy overall with the result. I am proud of these little guys simply because I FINALLY got back to painting and now I feel more desire to paint. Comments and critiques are truly welcome! It's great to be back!!!!!! P.S. The package said it was supposed to come with three, but there were four!

    Help me fix these skeletons

    Hi everyone, I need your help. I feel as if I am at a bit of an impasse. I am currently painting an armed force of ancient skeletons. The primary reasons for taking this project was to practice my OSL on the eyes, and trying my hand at verdigris for the first time. I love how both the skeletons and the ancient metal are coming out. However, I feel as if there is not enough contrast on the models, and when viewing them from tabletop distance, they look too... homogeneous. Do they look "boring" to anyone else? Does anyone else have a suggestion for how to fix them?

    Northstar Skeletons

    These three are from the Northstar Military Figures Skeleton Set, meant for the D&D game I found myself DM'ing after 10 years, lol. My photo skillz are suffering more than ever it seems.. Here is another try with different lighting: They are very finely detailed and great fun to paint. Thanks for looking and C&C is as always very much appreciated.
  13. A while back my wife said she'd like to try painting sometime. I said sure and didn't really think about it, then tonight she said she'd like to try. Now I had just primed a bunch of miniatures a week or two ago, had I remembered that passing comment I would have primed one for her too. When I first got into miniature painting I bought a few bags of skeletons (kind of like the old green plastic army men but they're yellowish skeletons). Size wise these skeletons are larger than a D&D skeleton. I planned to use a few as large skeletons, a minotaur skeleton, or a skeleton statue. These miniatures were great to learn on, so I got one out for her to paint. These skeletons weren't really meant to be painted and if they're not primed you really need to layer it on. We muscled through though. I took her step by step through the Reaper Learn to Paint pamphlet. Which is the same way I learned to do skeletons. First we did a wet application of white followed by Dirty Bone. Next I had her apply a thin wash of Pure Black finishing it with a dry brush of Dirty Bone. Everything else got a simple wet layer. Shield and sword were Honed Steel, the helmet and back of the shield were Leather Brown, the pommel of the sword was a mixture (Pure Black, Honed Steel, and a little White), and the sword's decoration was White. Painting a miniature especially a larger one may have given her a newfound respect for my hobby. I think it came out really well though.

    77017 - Skeleton Swordsman

    Some more practice/experimenting on a skeleton from the stocking stuffer extras. I tried adding a little something to the base, since I got a hodgepodge of basing supplies as part of a quest from the Getting To Know You thread. There are a couple of more pictures on my blog, though there's not much in the way of the process since I was running out of things to say about skeletons : link I'd really just picked the deadest-looking bits of moss that I could find for the basing, but a friend said that it made it seem like he was standing over the remains of some vanquished rival skeleton, so yay for that

    77001 - Skeleton Spearman

    I found myself with a few free skeleton minis in the bonus stocking from my December order, so I tried doing a quick (by my standards; it still took about 4 or 5 hours ) paint job on one of them using mostly the same color scheme as the skeleton from the "Learn to Paint - Core Skills" kit as a check for my progress at painting. But it'd be a bit boring to just do that, and I was still salty about the results of my previous attempt at glowing eyes, and I wanted some general freehand practice, so I had a bit of extra fun with the eyes and shield. As usual, thought process and more pictures are at my blog: link I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out, overall. The recesses for the gaps (between the ribs, on the forearms, and on the lower legs) should've been darker, some of the blacklining is sloppier than I'd like (particularly on the front trim and back bands of the shield), and there are little mistakes with all three characters on the shield freehand, but for something that I did relatively quickly, I can't complain too much. I'm still adjusting to having a bit of flow improver in my dropper bottle water, so some paint control issues are to be expected while I get used to having more control over how my brush pressure affects how the paint comes off the bristles, though I think the change will be worth it in the long run even just based on the difference that I've felt so far. On the plus side, I think the eyes turned out pretty good, and I'm getting better at not having so much of an ugly chalky look on my white highlighting. C&C welcome . I think the part of this mini that I'm the most disappointed in is the teeth, so advice on how to get better definition there would be especially helpful.

    Isabella Von Carstien Diorama - GW

    Greetings! I kind of finished this diorama a few years ago but have recently finished it for good with some newly aquired basing materials. I originally bought Isabella Von Carstien just to paint up as a single miniature but as her pose seemed to infer a commanding stance, I decided to expand things into a diorama by giving her an elite skeleton guard to command using a pack of GW skeletons that I had. For the actual terrain, I was inspired by a favourite old Ray Harryhausen film of mine, "The 7th Voyage Of Sinbad" where Sinbad swordfights a skeleton on a spiral staircase (which, famously, doesn't go anywhere!). It's a great scene & I wanted to create a spooky ruined spiral stone staircase for Isabella to lead from. The stonework is made from air-drying clay. I made the staircase by cutting out rolled flat wet clay "cookies" using the plastic cap off a deoderant can to create circles. I then scored lines into each wet "cookie" to create quarters & when dry, I snapped the clay into 4 quarters & tidied them up. I then glued each quarter on top of the last one leaving a eighth of the previous step showing, I repeated this until I got to the required height - I'm very pleased with how this worked out! . I then filled in all gaps between the steps to make them look like they were carved out of the stone & added some sand for texture here & there, I also pencilled in then scored some fish-scale tiles into the base. C & C are always welcome - Thanks for looking!

    77241: Skeleton guardian axemen

    I painted these three guys up a couple of saturdays ago to use for D&D. Nothing fancy, just a quick speed paint for gaming. I got a chance to try out the new steel and stone washes from Reaper. Thabks for looking!
  23. Step 0 Penny ^ ...New model in blister. ^ This guy is big enough to take up the footprint of four infantry skeletons. The penny is 19mm diameter. The plan is to give the figure a 40mm square, equivalent to four 20x20 bases arranged in a square. He will count as four members of the unit he'll be assigned to.

    Grenadier Skeleton

    Here is the skeleton from the Grenadier Monsters box set. I tried to make the bone more interesting than the usual tan+wash+drybrush.
