Wyrmgear looks fantastic (of course).

 

The real question is: how many gallons of paint did Kaladrax take?

I used about 5 bottles of paint on him in total.

So, unless people used KS paint only, painting the model costs more than the model itself. Just another example of what awesome deal this was! ::o:

I realized after seeing the pic of Kaladrax at the show that him, Cthulhu, and Nethyrmaul will require their own individual sets of paint.

 

I also realized I probably should have squirrelled away some funds for an airbrush.

 

 

Edit to add:

 

None of the Big Bones qualify as the largest plastic thing I ever painted with Reaper paints, though. Nor even the largest by handbrush. That dubious honor goes to Revell's re-pop of the old 1/72 Matchbox Flower Class Corvette - a thousand-plus piece monster three feet long . . . and mostly white.

 

Four. Years.

The wings are really shiny paint. I used alclad II chrome over a gloss black base coat to give them a highly polished chrome finish. Thank you all for such awesome compliments! It makes me feel what I do is worthwhile.

How do you shade with things like Alclad?

Martin, that Wyrmgear is amazing. You did a fantastic job.

 

Five bottles of paint for Kaladrax? Yow. I'm looking forward to seeing your interpretation.

Hey all,

 

I had a Reaper page up that showed all of the currently running kickstarters that have anything to do with miniatures. I hadn't bookmarked it and my PC crashed and restarted, and I lost the page. I've looked through the Reaper site, done forum searches, tried to google it, and not been able to find t again. I don't remember how I got to it in the first place, probably a link from a discussion somewhere. Does anyone have the link for that, or a way to navigate to it within the Reaper site?

 

Thanks,

 

Ben

      I have finally started working on my many Bones minis. This first one is 773000 Antipaladin by Bobby Jackson. It is mostly an experimental/ practice piece. I am not completely happy with my mold line removal, but in this case I am not going to worry about it too much. Mostly it is to get me acquainted with working with Bones minis and to experiment with my new Scale 75 metallic paints. I am not happy with all of the photos, my old photo setup got broken and I haven't gotten it replaced yet and just as I was taking these pictures one of my light bulbs went out and I don't have a replacement. Should be able to get better pics once I get a new bulb.
       
      First off I base coated the cape with Nightmare Black. This was a new paint purchase and I wanted to play with it. Really like this color.
      Next I used Faded black to Undercoat the skulls on the armor. I'm planning to do these in a metallic steel. Used Tanned skin as a base coat on his head.
      Next came Ultramarine Shadow for the armor undercoat. I really like this color for this as I am going to do the majority of the armor in a dark blue steel tone. The only down side is that the blue colors are fairly transparent and so take several coats to get good coverage.
       
      Looks like I am having some chipping issues, but I think I have that issue solved. Hope to get some more work done on him soon if life doesn't make me do other things first

      I love this figure.
      Not so much the bendy weapons, but I straightened them out.
      They have bent back a little (Sword).

      I did a WIP on him.  Thanks for the encouragement along the way.
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/80720-kord-the-destroyer-bones/
       
      He is another for our Reign of Winter Adventure Path.  My DM said "Vikings."  Kord has that vibe for sure.
       

       
      I tried to paint the base like grass.
      The hardest part was the nmm on the axe, and trying to get the runes to show up on the sword.  It's a very irregular axe shape, so it was tough to figure out how to do it.
      My green stuff patch job on the wolf pelt was not the greatest, but it is decent enough camouflage.
      The second-hardest part of the figure to me was figuring out what parts of the pelt were what.  What is tail? What are legs?  I did my best.
      Overall, I'm pleased with him.  He seems like such a bad-a$$.
      As for the pics, iPhone seems to be good for far away, but really "blobby" for up close.  Maybe it is suffering from zoom.
      C&C Welcome.

      First up is Terezinya, Bonepander Wizard (Reaper 77173).  She had been sitting on my paint desk partially painted for so long that her base got dusty, oops.  She always gave me a pirate wibe, hence the plank base.




      Nienna, Female Elf Ranger (Reaper 77091) is another one that sat partially painted for a really long time.  All that green, how do I paint all her knickknacks in an interesting way without making her stand out in forest?  Finally just brute forced it to get her done.


       
      Trista, the White Wolf (Reaper 77094), she didn't languish as long as the other two, but like normal I got stuck on deciding on colors for all the details.  But with 3 off the desk of shame I can start on something new!

      Here are 2 of the pin-up babes from Wargamer LLC's kickstarter Hot & Dangerous.  
       
      First up Lagertha the Shieldmaiden.  I love how her cloak turned out.  Not so happy with the face, it look pretty terrible in the photos, its not so bad in hand.  I need to get better at thinning my paints I think.




       
      Rosie the Bowman (the official name).  I did not like the concept art at all, but the finished sculpt turned out great.  I love how she has a lot of spunk.
