Gave the eyes a go.

Walnut Brown, Linen White, Walnut Brown pupil.  Getting it to here took 2 tries.


The sculpt makes this technique space the eyes apart a little too much, but it’s as good as I could hope for, so going to keep it.  As an aside, it looked acceptable and even good when it was just Walnut Brown, like the helm cast a deep shadow on his eyes.7809118E-BCE8-4ECF-A196-F1338ADF0A49.thumb.jpeg.73ff922798aa2e914c8e20247af66f33.jpeg

A little progress.

These skin shots were taken 2 weeks ago.

Reapplied Rosy Shadow, then layered in Rosy Highlight, finally Fair Skin.

More recently, I worked on his linens.

Reapplied Khaki Highlight, worked in layers of solid white.

Thanks, wolf.


Here is the work on the wraps/leathers.

Uniform Brown reapplied, then lightened in two stages with Khaki Highlight.



And the greens.

I reapplied Christmas wreath, then grass green, then 50/50 grass green/MSP Sample olive greenish, then full sample.


I tried to paint the base like grass with random hashes in the same direction.

Some more progress after a hiatus:

I did his leather armor bracer things.  I think it was Ginger Cookie and Khaki Highlight.


Then I worked on the copper nmm.  Tarnished Copper, New Copper, Linen white, and Pure White.  Then I glazed a very very thin layer of Mahogany Brown to knock it down.  I still need to apply some white pinpoint highlights to amp up the shine.

      Hi all, I'm not sure if this has ever been discussed, but does anyone know if Reaper has ever discussed/considered making the Bones ground sculpts that support the miniature the perfect circumference to be flush for 1" or 2" or 3" for RPG bases? Even for just the smaller miniatures that would fit 1" or 2" bases and not the large-sized ones?
      It seems like there would be a big portion of the market that would love a miniature you don't have to do special basing for besides supergluing it to a base considering how great some of the sculpted ground looks already. Basing miniatures by removing the nice ground sculpts from Reaper or trying to figure out how to obscure/blend in the sculpted ground is one of my biggest pet peeves about this hobby and I feel like there must be others who feel the same.

      I picked this up to paint for my girlfriend as Lon reminds me of her dog Erebus. He was fun to paint, although looking at the photo I can see a lot of flash I missed. As Erebus is female I probably should have done Lon's trousers in pink or the same teal shade as Erebus's collar and leash.

      Went a bit crazy and felt the call of the mini. Painted this in a single afternoon. Starting to get a hang on wet blending.

      My girlfriend's been fascinated by Antarctic exploration for a few months so when I saw that Reaper make an Antarctic Explorer figure, I had to get it and paint it for her. Here he is photographed in front of a porcelain iceberg she picked up at an art exhibit. She was really happy that I'd painted it for her but it took her about 30 seconds to say, "Isn't that the main guy from that Thing movie??"...
