  1. 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

    Swamp bases

    It took a bit to get here, but I finally got the latest tutorial out. This video shows how I go about making swamp bases. Let me know what you think.

    Marsh Troll - 02609

    I don't usually use so much gloss varnish and not the most exciting array of colors, but I think I captured what a wet, stinky, dirty ol' swamp troll should look like.
  5. Another one finished for my Lost World Project. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=71#comment-1531812 This is an older sculpt from Grenadier. I used a little water effect on the base to make it appear more swamplike. And I clipped off some plastic aquarium plant pieces to paint as jungle plants. Added a tiny piece of driftwood from the garden centre. Hope you like it. Feel free to comment.

    Swampy Bones

    hey all! hopefully am posting in right place. I'm after Bones minis that fit a swamp theme. I've done the Figure Finder, and got my first order in already (frogs, squogs and mushroom men). I'm designing an RPG encounter/adventure in a swamp to go on my swamp board. So in a way the RPG is going to fit the minis, which are going to fit the board, which is probably a bass ackwards way of doing it but it is fun :D These are some of the ones I've picked out so far for my March order: 03146: Frog Men (2) 02630: Frogmen 77273: Dragon Hatchling Black 03243: Swamp Shambler 02678: Swamp Hag 02496: Swamp Shambler 03694: Swamp Dragon Hatchling I'm just wondering if anyone has any others that would spring to mind, that would fit a good marsh or swamp theme? (Not all of the above are technically bones) So far I'm working with a kind of frog/squog village, a swamp hag encounter (who will be controlling the shamblers) and a couple of dragon babies, because why not. I'm thinking about doing a mushroom forest idea and putting the mushroom men in it too. Anyway, appreciate any other thoughts =D

    03551 DHL Classics Lizardmen 1

    My latest project, complete. You can find the WIP thread here. I did an experiment, using ridges of dirt flocking to hold in water effects. It actually worked out reasonably well, though next time I'll know to build up the rest of the base more. I also decided this one was female, on the basis that she's noticeably larger than the other two. I'm rather happy with how the shield came out here. It looked a bit like a horseshoe crab to me, so I wanted to make it look nice and chitinous, as though she tore it from the back of some great swamp arthropod. My first freehand. It was supposed to be an anchor-shaped tattoo to start with, but I messed that up, and decided to just go with an abstract design. I cheated on the pupils for these guys. I bought a micron pen, and it worked out rather well. I probably would have gone with a solid color for the eyes, otherwise. This was the only one to have any sort of decoration on his integral base. The others are pure broccoli, but he's got a little plant on his. Gave it a nice pale green color to contrast with his scales. The color is actually a mystery paint Reaper sent me. I actually have two bottles of the stuff, from two orders from around the same time. I'll be sad when it runs out. It's a very nice color. And here we have his turtleshell shield. I actually looked up pictures of real turtles and cobbled together characteristics of several species for the color selection and pattern. And here's the whole happy family, together. Touching, really.

    McTavish: Malifaux Model

    Recently decided to paint up McTavish from Malifaux. I don't play the game, but I wanted to paint an alligator. Definitely gave my greens a workout on this one. I'm really happy with how the belly scales came out. I used tusk ivory and then the GW sepia wash, then re-highlighted with more tusk ivory and a little linen white.
  9. Two of Reapers metal Dragon Hatchlings. Although they are listed as Fire and Swamp hatchlings, I didn't exactly paint them that way. They were for a friend's up and coming Dragon Island campaign. Should be a nice addition the the battles to come. They were more of an experiment in colors for me and may end up painting one of Reapers larger dragons using one of their color schemes.

    Swamp Base Help

    Not sure where this belongs, but I could use some advice on it so here it is. I'm working on this for my pathfinder red dragon that will actually be green ;^). The logs aren't glued down yet and they will have some moss growing and a splash of realistic water on them. It seems like it could use more detail...just don't know what. This is my first attempt at anything like this so I am at a loss. Any suggestions to improve it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  11. This is the Bones figure 77267: Kallaguk, Troll King, who I keep thinking of as a marsh or swamp troll. He is a bit wobbly. His ankles are very thin and he tends to tip forward (as might be visible in a few photos). On a flat surface instead of a plinth he is straightened out by the spike on his club. I think he would have a difficult time balancing in any material except Bones. He was part of my year-end round up and Conga Line of finishing half-done figures. There is also a much older WIP thread here.
  12. Hello all! Finished the base for my take on Cichastus, so he is ready for display.... (WIP) He isn't glued down to the flying base post yet... the neckid base As always C&C welcome! George Edit Adding some new pics with a good camera and good lighting... Without the base Just the base Easier to see the colors now... George
  13. Folks this is the lovely Bones troll that Pochi sent me for the fall exchange. I am sorry for the delay in posting pictures but the Troll suffers from weak ankles and I had to let him lean back to get decent pictures. ( bassically stood him on his side and let gravity do its thing). After taking these pictures I will be attempting to stiffen up those ankles so that he can stay upgright permanently! Fair warning this is picture heavy as there was sooooooo much on this mini and his base I just couldn't keep the number of pictures down. I also apologize for my poor photography skills ,,, I have none! First the full mini in all its glory! Next the main character Please note the lovely choice of colors and the blending is just excellent... (also as some will note.. there is Orange!!!!) and the drool.. (well done) And now for the supporting characters: the Iguana: the Butterfly: The log and skull: The rubber? plant with a small creature as well. Note the roots into the swamp water: and the Rose! what can I say.. I LOVE IT Thanks Pochi!
  14. These are frogman warriors from the new Bones II Kickstarter figures, sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Like the accompanying frog shaman, these critters are full of character and interesting detail. I painted them up like common meadow leopard frogs, the sort of spotted green ones I played with as a child, because they seemed a bit big and burly to be tropical tree frogs. The one with the spear and human-face-shield is 92681; the one with the fork and turtleshell shield is 92682. WIP thread here. Just as a side note: Does anyone know how to make it so the pictures in the post are nice and small but we can click on them and see a larger one?
  15. This is the mini I painted for robinh for the Fall Exchange. It is Kallaguk from Bones II. Robin asked for a monster and said he liked orange (grin). I tried to work some orange in here and there. I tried to paint him to look somewhat amphibious. Robin's mini got to be my guinea pig for several things I have never done before. This is the first sculpting I have ever done and the first time I have attempted water. Both turned out ok, I definitely need more practice but overall I liked the finished project. Some of the pictures make me cringe because they seem to shine giant spotlights on places I could have done better! I really did like how he turned out and am going to have to get another to paint for myself. My favorite part - the drool! I hid lots of little things in the base. There is a fish skeleton in the water between his feet, a chameleon, a stick monster, another little monster lurking under a bush, and a sheep (or demon) skull. Lots of pictures, I will post some in the first reply. Hopefully Robin has better pictures than I do. I am not a very good mini photographer.
  16. These are two turtle warriors from the Bones II Kickstarter. I glued them to fender washers for weight and balance before painting them. The color palette is more muddy and earthy than normal for me. I wanted to make them look like alligator snapping turtles, the terror of my youth. One of them has a greener shell because that's a natural variation. The turtle shell shield is painted like an Eastern Box Turtle, an inoffensive little North American forest-dwelling turtle. WIP thread here. Spikeshell Warrior with shield and club: Spikeshell Warrior with two-handed club:
  17. This one started out primed with Reaper Brown Liner (not shown). First I very thinly washed color over it, green on the base and two shades of blue over the body, allowing the Brown Liner to show through.

    The Dark Swamp - Bones Diorama

    Hi all, I per my habit, I painted my bones mini by batch, and the theme for this one was "the dark swamp". I imagined that the swamp was plagued by a new aquatic creature. So the current inhabitants of the swamp (Troll, frogmen and turlemen) banded together to rid the pond from this thing. (As you can tell, writing fluff is not my forte...) And a few pics of the troll: The tree was sulpted in clay, the base of the scenery is insulation foam, the vegetation is taken from dollar store easter decor... C&C welcome
  19. One more from my Undead Regiment, http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60959-undead-regiment-in-a-swamp-mixed-manufacturers/ The Barbarian Zombie, Made by Grenadier.
  20. Glitterwolf

    Mirliton Skeleton Archers

    And the archers. These are from Mirliton ( I think). They are slightly larger than the original Grenadier ones
  21. Glitterwolf

    Grenadier Skeleton, Mirliton Skeleton

    Two more members of the horde. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60959-undead-regiment-in-a-swamp-mixed-manufacturers/ The one with the twohanded axe is from Grenadier. The one with axe and shield is probably from Harlequin, Though I'm not exactly sure. He's been around for years EDIT: I found him, He is actually from Mirliton. Newer cast.
  22. The Command Group. Carrying the Battle Banner. Mummy Captain, Ghoul Drummer and Zombie Banner Bearer.
  23. Again two more ( tired yet of this Undead invasion?). Ghost is from Harlequin, Zombie from Grenadier.
  24. Glitterwolf

    Otherworld Skeleton Warriors

    Three more from the Undead Regiment. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60959-undead-regiment-in-a-swamp-mixed-manufacturers/ These are from Otherworld Miniatures. Very nice detailed mini;s. I painted the snake symbol as a freehand again. And again reds and or purples as the Vampire Queen's Heraldry. Enjoy ( I hope).
