  1. Freshman year of high school, my friend Bob Evans (no lie) introduced me to the world of miniatures. I thought they were gorgeous and it looked like a supremely fun hobby, one I'd really enjoy... but I'd probably be no good at it. Besides, you've got to prime those things, and where was Mom gonna let me spraypaint? Fast forward two decades and I've finally started painting miniatures. (And I don't need to prime them! And there's brush-on primer now, too!) It seems silly, but the hobby is everything I've always wanted it to be: Meditative, rewarding, challenging, and a whole lot of fun. I dipped my toe in with the LTP kit and was hooked. Six weeks later and here we are! Without further ado, here are my first few fellas that I painted after burning through that kit and the Layer Up LTP kit. I'm surprised that there's not more love for these little guys on the forums or in the inspiration gallery! They do a good job straddling the line between adorable and vicious. These figures were my most challenging yet, with a lot of detail work. Each one took probably four to six hours to paint, and the teeth really gave me some trouble there. Meet Kermit and his thugs, Dig'em and Michigan J. I'm still a newbie to this hobby, so I'd gladly take any comments and criticism in the interest of honing my skills!
  2. Angelica is finally finished. I went back to my WIP thread, and I realized I started her over a year ago. She has been sitting on my desk waiting to be based for a while now. I decided to go with a relatively simple base. I really enjoyed painter her up.. I hope you enjoy seeing her finished up. I certainly do. Thanks for looking and any C&C you feel to give.
  3. So just got done painting some more old school Ral Partha classics, this time a set sculpted by Dennis Mize in 1996 (if you believe the bottom of the base) called Dark Divide, which was based on a Larry Elmore painting: My original thought was to actually paint it a little more faithfully to the original colors, but I ended up doing the gal's dress in green instead of pink and I made the vampire a lot more pale than he was in the painting. Being that the painting shows them being inside, I also just did a very generic bland base, instead of it being outside with dirt and grass, or even by making them over cobblestones or something similar. After seeing how he came out in the photos, I'm not overly happy with the armor for the warrior, but oh well, not going to change it now. I was going to take these pictures yesterday, but I've been using natural light any more to take photos with and it was so cloudy and rainy yesterday that I just couldn't get a decent photo. Anyhow, great fun to paint, pretty simple models, hope you all enjoy!
  4. This is probably the reason I don't finish miniatures to quickly. I decided to begin prepping up a figure from another KS I backed. The 3 figures in this pack are in parts and rather fragile pieces. I also had to look at the photo to see which pieces and how I'm going to have to put them together. Here is a shot of Angelica - the Half-Elf Warrior in pieces.
  5. These are my players for Chaos, in Blood Bowl. The Minotaur/Ogre and daemonettes, are from GW, and the Warriors are a mix of parts from GW, and Avatars of War.
  6. Here's another batch of Talisman 4th Edition mini's. These have been great models to practice on, but good grief the production quality is bad. Also still having trouble figuring out how to take decent pictures. Was having problems with them being too dark, now I'm going the other direction. Thief Monk Warrior Elf
  7. I'm new to this hobby, spent too much money buying my first pack of minis ((got the Hordes Krielstone bearer and stone scribe 4 set) because I hadn't come across the Reaper Bones at that point) and this is my fifth miniature I've painted. I wanted to paint a half orc barbarian sort of character in case I wanted to try playing D&D on Roll20 or something (im a bit shy, so an in person kind of D&D thing is a bit of a stretch). Welp, here is my uh.. 3/4 orc barbarian :)
  8. I think this is an old Citadel barbarian figure that I finished last night. He was actually a 'paint catcher' ( an old/broken figure I keep around to test paint ideas on ) for a while that I decided to actually finish off. He's a little rough, I did him in a couple hours to get myself back into painting after a few weeks of nothing. I hope you like him, he'll be serving as a thug in one of my Frostgrave warbands. I'm also not positive on the manufacturer; please let me know if I'm wrong and I'll correct the post.
  9. This is an old Grenadier models lion-man that I finished the other day. Tabletop as usual. I hope you like him.
  10. This was a promo mini I got at ReaperCon 2016 from the swag bag. He's from Endless Fantasy Tactics. Had him sitting primed, ready to go for a bit now. Goal: get something painted and done without worrying too much since this week was stressful. I picked up the backdrop at the same con from Hangar 18.
  11. This is an old grenadier figure from the 'Fantasy Warriors' range/game. I'm not entirely certain what he's called; he's not in Mirilton's catalogue, so I guess his mold didn't survive. At any rate, I found him again recently and decided to give him some paint. Tabletop work as usual; I hope you like him.
  12. This was my second diorama that I did for ReaperCon 2016. I started toying with ideas after the Mousling Award was announced and originally pictured a few Mouslings in a cave, totally oblivious to the spider on the ceiling. This changed when I was sorting through some burl wood and came across the piece that I used. I used wolf spiders as my inspiration as they like to make their home in holes and so rather than a cave, I had the Mouslings hunting the spider in a field. It just came together perfectly and I had a blast painting them. I am so addicted to Mouslings now. "The Hunt" MSP Open Mousling Third Place
  13. From the 10033, Mouslings Heroes Boxed Set here's; 03529B, Fenimore the Mousling Archer sculpted by Gene Van Horne.
  14. My eternal struggle with NMM. But I'm worse with metalics, so I have to improve at least one technique. I hope it looks like an armor to you. I painted this guy for friend - his PC C&C always welcome.
  15. Since I posted some of my work where I converted certain reaper miniatures into kitsune a while ago, I figured I would post one of the newer kitsune that I've painted recently. I got this miniature from "Everyman Gaming", they have been getting a site called imagine3dminiatures.com to 3d print miniatures for them. This miniature was a bit difficult to paint because I had to clean off a lot of plastic nubs that were leftover from the 3d printing process. I kept finding more even after I primed the miniature. I also had to cut the mini off of its 30mm base and glue it to one of reaper's 1 inch scale bases. However, in the end the mini came out very well! Well, some parts came out a bit messy, like the gold on the shield, and the black wash. Luckily, in real life people won't be able to see the messy black wash that I put on the mini, lol. Painting this mini was a lot of fun, so I'm planning to paint Everyman's nine tailed kitsune miniature soon :D
  16. My samurai Tengu Warrior. I could not figure out what was sculpted on his shoulder armor. My wife and I looked under a magnifying glass and decided "Cartoon Troll With Big Nose" and " Exploding Chicken Head On Fire" They are both different looking and neither is pictured in Reapers stock photos. Tough paint, because I could not find any painted examples online for reference. The static grass I ordered really helped break up all those browns.
  17. Hello again everybody, got this one finished last night. Not quite so sure about the quality of of the photos, but when they are shrunk down to 500 x 500 they look a lot better. Also with him holding up that sword it takes up so much space in the photo itself that everything looks a bit smaller than I'd want it to. Oh well. ​In any case, this is the King of the Realm, a figure from Dennis Mize that originally came in a package of kings from different genres. There was this guy, http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/images/b/b2/03-005_D.JPG then another one that I painted previously, http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:03-006_front.JPG then an African warrior king and an oriental mage. There was then also a corresponding pack of ladies from the same set of genres, another one of which I'd recently painted. Anyhoos, this one is the barbarian king archetype: and he had a big, empty, round shield so tried to put a dragon on it: So hoping he came out okay.
  18. This is what I decided to do today while the football game was on.. The issue I'm having right now is threefold: First, I mixed Pearl White and Bloodless skin for the horns, but just don't think that looks right.. Any suggestions (my white(ish) color palette is pretty limited) would be awesome.. Second, I have no idea what color to use for the haft of the mace - it doesn't seem like it should be wood, but there's already a lot of iron and blacks in the mini.. Third, the hooves.. what sort of color mix do people use for replicating hooves.. Colors used: skin - a concoction of clotted red, black, tanned skin and a bit of flame red that I'll never be able to replicate again. armor - shadowed steel mace ball - adamantium black bace chain - blackened steel hair and pants (i converted the thong to skintight leggings with a bit of liquid green - my little kids see enough crack on TV without it being on my desk too) - black
  19. Hey all, Wanted to take a break from painting big stompy robots (CAVs) and get back into something with curves. Someone in my pathfinder group just made a new character, a female slayer... So I used that as motivation to paint up this awesome sculpt. I looked around and got heavy inspiration from these two posts by Pingo and Evilcoatrack: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61985-scáthach-scotswoman-warrior-77389-highland-heroine/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69147-77389-highland-heroine-wip/ I decided to try a few new things with this mini, including thinning using matte medium, and a tartan pattern. Tartan is really hard to make look good... If anyone had any tips, I am all ears. I just finished the hair and am really happy with how it came out, and this is probably the best face I have ever done as well (with eyes, no less!). In fact, the irises went on a bit thick, so there is a little dollop that creates a shadow under strong light to mimic a pupil ... Kind of like the opposite of what Roman sculptures do. A fortunate accident. Anyway, C and C appreciated. I reckon I'll have her done by the end of the week. I'll be trying nmm on the sword and shields. Pingo and Evilcoatrack, thanks for the inspiration!!!
  20. This one took a long time to complete. I claimed it finished two times, but got more feedback. Fixed a little here, added a little there.. And as they say; All good things are three. :)
  21. Yes I decided I need to begin my work so I can hopefully finish up an entry for Bombshell Miniatures, I decided to go with Qadire of the Sands. I gave her skin a base coat and painted up her eyes. Well I thought I had, until I looked at her eyes blown up. I think I need to reexamine her left eye.
  22. Need somewhere to keep my dwarf army. Thought to build LED underground small garrison fort/outpost. Will have 4 floors Magnetized bottom floor for large models And will try to stuff as much detail as I can. Began with a wooden simple frame, and 2" PinkFoam. Was debating to build up all details and then paint it at once, or paint it in pieces and install them into the box as I go. Do to the nature of the LED lighting, and much uncertainties with LED lighting, I decided to craft it piece by piece instead of all at once. Also, I do not have a good way to cover very large, hard to get to, very detailed area with coats of paint very efficiently, thus will take slower path. Have some plans how to dress up the outside but want to leave that part for last.
  23. Starting my Gnoll/Orc/Gnoll/Orc pattern until I run out of Gnolls. Then I'll splice some other monster in between my many orcs.
  24. It was tough to get a good picture of him. I did what I could. I'd like to know why he is thricedamned... Thoughts?
