Was bored at work so I started doodling in Bones. I call this kitbash a Bathalian Maw. It's the Primarch with the arms from the Centurion and the mouth from an Erynth Grask. It's to the point of needing a bit of greenstuff to marry the face to the head better. Also might use a second Primarch to extend the torso and give it a second set of arms with the original Primarch arms below the current Centurion ones. If I do I'm likely to borg in part of the second Primarch's tail to lengthen the tail to balance the longer torso. Anyway, it's kept me amused for a half hour or so which was its main purpose.

Also, I hate how hard it is to get good photos of unpainted Bones.

Mwuhuhahahahah!  Still need greenstuffing. 

 

ETA:  Can't get these to not load sideways.  No idea why.  You get the idea though.  First pic has Frost Wyrm for scale.

IMPRESSIVELY IMAGINATIVE! That is the stuff of Nightmares. This is going to be something TRULY HORRIFYING when it's all painted up. Have FUN with the Beasty!

Very Nice!

Where do you work that you have time for that????

7.62mm blanks aren't going to hurt many people, but would make a Nice case for carrying terrain and such!

Thanks! ::D:

Part time job at a hobby store. (Though to be fair, all the pictures after the first are of stuff I did once I got home.) :B):

Who said that we keep what the labeling says in the can?   :poke:

      Good day everyone, this was my entry in Reaper's Facebook Paint Your Giant contest. 77178, Fire Giant Warrior, Dark Heaven Bones model sculpted by Jason Wiebe. It is mounted on a 74027, Ruins Vignette Base, a resin base sculpted by Patrick Keith. This model is huge, 7cm high and 13cm wide with the sword. I did some minor conversion on it.   A heavy thundering sound come crushing down the ruined hall. You see orange and red lights dancing between the pillar supporting the stone roof. In the glimpse of a moment, all hell break loose as a dark skin colossus burst from the rubbles wielding a towering incandescent blade. He lands next to you smashing the large tiles of the floor. You are paralyzed in fear as he turns gazing in your direction with fire in his eyes. Desperate, you wonder if you've gone too far exploring this ancient Undermountain realm.

      Dark Heaven Legends Thelgar Halfblood 03197 converted using greenstuff and warhammer bits. Painted and used as a pc in my dnd campaign :D

      This is a conversion of the dark elf figure Aundine (14089 in the Warlord line) to represent my latest Pathfinder character, a changeling (orphan of a sea hag mother and a human father) with water-related magic and some rogue abilities.
      You can see the WIP thread here.
      I spent about 6 hours on prep & conversion & basing, and about 5 hours priming & painting.
      This will be a literal "tabletop mini", so I didn't spend the time to get very smooth blends, but it is still much more than a speedpaint.  I took especial care on the face and had fun with her shiny "eelskin" armor. 
       
      Would anyone like to know how I would judge this as an entry in ReaperCon's MSP Open painting contest, in either the Painters Division or the Open Division?
       

       

       
      Enjoy,
      Derek

      This is the miniature for my character in my current home game, the "Ruins of Azlant" Pathfinder Adventure Path. 
      My character is a changeling (child of a sea hag), a spellcaster with an affinity for water and also some rogue abilities. 
      She presented herself as a human rogue for the first few sessions, but couldn't keep the secret forever.
      We have finished 2 of the 6 books, playing about twice a month.  I was using an elf mini from my collection as a stand-in, but I knew I wanted to paint a mini specific to the character.
       
      She wears a suit of magical eelskin leather armor (which we recently found in the game); her main weapons are a longspear, a crossbow, and her claws.
      I searched through the Reaper catalog and I remembered how much I liked this dark elf from the Warlord line (14089 Aundine), though I had never painted one:

       
      So I made a few changes:
      - cut off the pointy right ear and resculpted hair over it
      - cut away hair from left side of face and resculpted face and hair
      - removed sword, drilled a hole through right hand, added a spear:
         - spearhead/blade from 03466 Taladise elf huntress
         - shaft made from the wire of a Chinese food take-out container
         - wrapping and end-cap sculpted from Green Stuff
      - removed left hand and weapon, replaced with claw-hand from 03337 Terezinya, attached left arm to body at a higher angle than shown in the catalog example
      - cut right foot off of tab and straightened foot
      - added goggles with Green Stuff
       
      Here was the result of those conversions:
       

       

       
      More to come!

      So, after indulging in the metal trade at Reapercon this year I found myself going through my stores of salvaged miniatures and putting together various bits and pieces.  I tend to save a lot of scraps and fragments of figures in my spare parts bin (or drawer, rather) which I think may be useful for something someday or other, and after pouring the lot of it out and sifting through it I realized that I have accumulated an awful lot of this sort of thing, and it was high time I did something with it.
       
      After messing around and experimenting for a couple of hours I came away with a promising assortment of parts, enough to assemble three or four female figures in all.  I thought it would be fun to make a WIP out them (hopefully it will help keep me motivated to finish all four of them).  Most of the parts are from Reaper figures (I'll try to list the catalog numbers), but there are a few other bits and pieces in between, which I'll try to identify as best I can.
       
      First off, I've got one of the alternate torsos from the 03096 Pegasus rider.  This matched up really well with a random set of legs I had lying around, which I think once belong to a steampunk-ish figure.  Digging around in my stores of weapons I found the original shield that went with the torso. 
       


       
      Next up, I have the upper torso from the 03631 Sea Elf Bard, which marries up surprisingly well with the legs from the alien pole dancer from 50270.  In particular, by using a hobby knife to carefully separate the thighs of the legs I was able to get a pretty dynamic looking pose (DISCLAIMER:  In the picture it looks a bit like she has some camel toe going on, which is an artifact left over from the incision I made to separate the legs.  That being said, I have nonetheless linked the picture to comply with forum rules on nudity).

      Lastly for now, I've got the torso from the 03459 Angel of Justice.  With a bit of judicious trimming, it marries up almost perfectly with the legs from 03336 Cancer from the Children of the Zodiac series.  Pictures are linked below due to nudity on the angel model.

      http://s1376.photobucket.com/user/Jack_Ironhammer/media/20180903_230715 2_zpscmiiqn4i.jpg.html?filters[user]=145063139&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=1


       
      I started out with the angel of justice mashup.  The original figure was drilled for wings, and since I was already starting to get kind of a supernatural vibe from the figure I dug around my spares bin for something wing-ish to put there.  I ended up with a pair of fairy wings.  I then looked for something suitable to put in her hand where the original sword was, and after a bit of experimentation I decided that another sword is kind of looked the best.  As before, images containing nudity are linked separately below.

      Whatever she is, she's got a very triumphant look about her (a couple people I showed her to said she looked a bit like the Statue of Liberty).  As such, I have dubbed her The Fairy of Victory.  I have no idea what a Fairy of Victory does, but I'm quite sure its suitably magnificent.
