January's Effort


4 Spartan Games, Dystopian Wars 1/1200 Tanks

...but no FrostWizard, (theme failed ::(: ).

As for bonus, Frostgrave ties in perfect for Wizards and Winter.

And I really wanted to do one...


4 for January :: 4 for year.

Oh this looks fun! 


My goals this month was to work on gnolls.  Do eyes, then TMM armor and bases.  possibly 0 finished this month, but all 8 finished by next month. 

I will add the winter wizard from the challenge for variety.

  1. 02910: Cheetah Girl - Khajiit Marksman
  2. 02982: Casiatta - Battlemage, Babe of House Slytherin
  3. 03445: Drunk Pirate - Pirate campaign
  4. 03131: Eric Swiftblade -  Pirate campaign
  5. 03646: Barnabus Frost - Pirate campaign

I added another pirate in case Casiatta didn't count - I started her in December, and that's not really Shelf of Shame, just behind on painting!


As I work on them, they will be in Mori's Holiday Gifts WIP. ^_^

I'm in:


  1. Tuma Windrider 120mm Bust from Legendarion.
  2. 01567 Reaper -Mary The Mermaid                          http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66457-mary-the-mermaid-by-xherman1964-aka-underwater-greed/

Because of the size of Tuma he will probably fill the quota like this.


Bonus : Placeholder.

I'm in! Not 100% sure what I'm doing yet but I'll sort it out, or you people can tell me if I get something wrong. ::):


  1. 89013: Ezren, Iconic Wizard (Show Off) (WIP) (Reaper store
  2. 77356: Anhurian Swordsman (Show Off) (Reaper store)
  3. (Another Anhurian Swordsman)
  4. (And yet another Anhurian Swordsman)

Not sure if I'm doing the bonus yet, I have a mage who needs painting who might work for it, but... not decided. Nope, no bonus for me! Too busy with other stuff.


(I'm likely to get either none or >12 done this month, actually, because most of the painting I want to do is army painting right now. I gots me a Frostrgrave warband needs painting! ::P: )

I really have far too many miniatures. At least 20, and with a further 20 inbound from the 20 kickstarters I have backed the last few years. So for 2016 I will try to crank out those minis at an elevated pace, and chalk up an even 366 -one for each day - finished by the end of the year. And keeping my normal sloppyfast painting quality at a minimum. At least that is the goal.


Of course, this means that to avoid spamming the excellent reaper forums with samey, production-line dross nobody really wants to see, I will not be posting each and every one in the show off-forum even though the rpchallenge says I should.

But I will be putting them all up on my blog and linking them here.


2016 started strong, with 14 finished the first weekend, and a further 18 a few days later.



1. Bones Wall of Ice

3. Bones Treasure Pile and Candelabras

1. Bones Ghost King

1. Bones Mocking Beast

2. Bones Hordlings

1. DreadBall MVP: The Mighty Z'zor! (Ludwig)

2. Studio Miniatures: Nazi Zombies

2. Vor: Baby Growlers

7. Shadows of Brimstone Heroes

6. Shadows of Brimstone: Hell Bats

12. Shadows of Brimstone: Void Spiders

3. Shadows of Brimstone: Slashers

1. Shadows of Brimstone: Goliath

1. Shadows of Brimstone: Harbinger

1. Citadel Oldhammer Chaos Dwarf

1. Mantic Kings of War: Ba'Su'Su the Vile (Gargoyle Character)

2. Leviathan: Hell Hounds

18. Mantic SciFi Zombies conversions




Painted so far this month / year: 65

      Some Stone Golems (SKU 77171) to challenge my players with in some future game session.

      I had fun painting these Bones mushroom men (SKU 77345) to a tabletop standard.  Their faces are so derpy and cool!

      A really quick and dirty set of scenery using mantics library mini crate.  All told I have maybe 2 hours into the set.  I think it came out pretty well.  I wanted to see what these looked like and the could double for additional scenery on my Saga game.
      Air brushes brown primer, followed by a drybrush of woodland brown and then a bunch of colors for the actual books 
      Hope you like what you see...

      First of all, let me introduce myself. My name is Alessio Cisbani, and I'm an Italian miniature sculptor and painter.
      With this project I want to create a series of metal miniatures inspired by the classic ones of the 90s that I collected and painted. These miniatures will fit with your favourite wargames and can be cool PC or NPC for your pen&paper roleplaying games.
      The path this project will take is like the exploration of a dungeon: as our heroes delve deeper, they will face menacing creatures like Gargoyles or treacherous cultists and enchanters, but they may also find unexpected allies... Moreover Randolf the Ogre (see below) could find bits of armor, and weapons of his size!
      My project is live and yet funded in few hours, I would be glad if you can take a look.

      I Don't have much to go on with this dragon.  its another one that has been sitting half finished on my shelf forever.  the bottom has some script on the bottom that looks like FWS and an 8.  other than that I don't have any clue where it comes from. 
      but I finally dusted the mini off, freshened up the red (It was becoming a pink dragon) and decided to display it here.  hope everyone enjoys!
