Alright, with two months to go until ReaperCon, I need to get cracking on my entries. I currently have two maybe four entries for Painters, one for Open, and two for Diorama.

 

My definite Painters entries are:

Reaper 14131: Elsabeth, Necropolis Captain in purples and blues prancing through a graveyard.

Dark Sword DSM7442 Wood Elf Gooddess-Avatar Form in green among forest ruins (started in my previous WIP)

 

My maybe Painters entries are:

Kabuki's The Hunter in black and red on a simple base

Reaper 03730: Jahenna, Female Vampire, back and white study. This is a commission for a friend and I may bring it with me if I finish in time

 

My Open entry is:

Hasslefree HFX004 Gen. I will need to link her actual pictures as she is nude. I am going to be converting her into a blue fairy. I have removed her horns and will be adding fairy wings.

 

My Diorama entries are:

"The Toad Bridge" which will feature some of Dark Sword Anthropomorphics facing off against each other.

"The Hunt" featuring two Mouslings and a spider, but who is the hunter and who is the prey?

 

I have ambitious plans but unlike last year, I am not going to force myself to finish everything. I will work on what I feel like working on and if I get it done, it goes. I won't stress about trying to get everything done as I have a few finished pieces already that I can easily bring.

 

So now onto the pictures. First up is a group shot of all the models except for Gen, followed by a group shot of their bases. I have the bases on my Tablewar tray to make sure everthing fits. I did have to rethink the base for "The Toad Bridge" as the original took up half of the tray.

OOOH, COOL STUFF! It looks like you have some WONDERFUL miniatures along with the beginnings of some equally wonderful bases AND a good dollop of motivation. There is nothing quite as motivating as a deadline; at least nothing that doesn't carry a whip.

Thanks guys! Hopefully I can get them all done in time. I had a schedule and game plan for getting everything done but that got thrown out the window fairly quickly due to stuff over the last couple of months.

Ahh, "Stuff."

Fouler-upper of the best laid plans.

 

Good luck. That's a heaping plate of to-do.

We'll all be cheering you on.

It's been a while since I started this but I have been a busy bee. I have done a little here and a little there, mainly prep and base work so here we go.

 

First up the "The Toad Bridge" crew. There is a mouse ranger, rabbit mage, and cat knight facing off against a horned toad assassin, all are from Dark Sword. Except for a little gap filling, they are ready for primer.

Next are the Mouslings and spider for the "The Hunt". They are all ready for primer.

Lastly are the bases for my fairy and vampire. The fairy's is the one in the left and the vampire is the one on the right. Can't have a fairy in a graveyard.

I have trees! And a bridge. Bridges are evil, or at least this one is. The trees are not 100% done yet, I need to do at least one more layer of the putty. Once that is done, everything will be ready for primer and then I can finally get to painting.

      Hello friends!
       
      My son and I play Talisman 4th edition all the time. I'ts his favorite game. The figures that come with the game aren't the greatest sculpts. With the Talisman board game having some great themed art i've wanted to get some cool Reaper Bones figures as replacements, paint them up and base them for the game.
       
      I've searched Reapers database to find figures that matched the likenesses of the miniatures that come with the game and the art on each character card. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to go with the strictly Bones route. There are some figures in the Dark Heaven Legends line that fit better.
       
      The attached is what i've come up with so far. I've included a photo of the original character cards and another photo of the corresponding Reaper figures that i've been thinking about.

      These were done in two batches, the first almost a year ago. 

      The whole crowd.

      The Band.


      The Staff. These were part of last year's batch and I tried to give the Innkeeper the Perpetual Bartender Sneer.


      The Drunks. The two on the sides were last year's batch.

      Here is our current adventuring party for Iron Kingdoms.  We started a new campaign shortly after Reapercon, so I was able to make use of several of the convention minis.
      This party is quite an odd mix of races.  Lately, I've been quite fond of having a semi-cohesive color pallet for our adventuring parties.  The last one I did was all in cold blues, so with this one I went for a very warm pallet.
       
      Lil is an investigator who 'secretly' is a Thamar Advocate.  She's just the stock mini of the vampire hunter from Reapercon (by Bob Ridolfi)


      This Pygmie Troll is very fond of hitting things and also alcohol.  He was made by resculpting the head and hands from the Jason Weibe's Dwarf Brewmaster (07015)


      Our resident Bone Grinder was made from Bobby Jackson's River Widow (03913).  I only made superficial changes to her (adding a few extra bone-grindy items to her belt).
      ]
       
      For our Trollkin Axe Flinger, it turns out that we already had the perfect mini.  This is the version from the Undercity Board Game.


      This Outcast Skorne Bushwacker/Warlock was made by simply head swapping a Malifaux rifleman.


      This Lazy Cyclopes (under the command of the Warlock) was a sculpt that I made quite a few years ago.  I showed it off to several sculptors at Gencon, and they all gave me some pointers on things that I could improve on.  Still, I was fond enough of him that I decided to paint him up.
