  1. This one has been on my work bench forever. It is arguably my favourite Reaper kit ever produced and I just didn't want to mess it up. Like many others, I had a lot of trouble with the legs which caused the hut to lean forwards quite excessively. I fixed this by boiling them, however the angle was still slightly off, so I created a custom base that allowed me to slot the feet in at a slight angle and compensate for the leanage. The Baba Yaga miniature is not the one supplied in the kit (I didn't like the original), I replaced it with a 3D printed hag I found on Ebay.

  2. This is Reapers Stone Golem (77171). 'No one remembers the wizards name, his tower now a crumbling ruin was abandoned centuries ago. Yet deep inside, its long forgotten guardian still maintains a silent vigil over its former masters abode, ready to spring to life at the first sign of intrusion.'

  4. I did a quick paint job on this one just to practice some freehand on the inside of the cloak. Made the skin highlights a little too harsh for my own taste, but this will be used heavily at the game table at ReaperCon 2022.

  5. Hi folks, I painted up my Queen of Hell yesterday for the RCL "Textures" pop-up. She's a gorgeous model, really fun to paint. I gave NMM another try and am happy with the gold but not so much with the steel. However, more experience is still good. 🙂 I realised when looking up her SKU that I attached the left hand incorrectly- so it goes! Now to paint the King of Hell to match one of these days... thanks for looking. 🙂

  7. How long has it been since I started a show off thread???? Too long. I have missed everyone and hope to get back to at least a semi regular amount of posts. Figured I’d start with a Reaper mini. For the forum peeps that attended ReaperCon 2019 you may have seen my version of Derek’s beautiful sculpt O-Sayumi or affectionately named Akiko. I had a great time painting this lovely lady. Since I didn’t complete her until Thursday night of the con I didn’t get any photos until last week. Two years to take pics and post them up, not bad huh? I missed ReaperCon and all of you. I have been e

  9. This was a Reapercon special a year or three ago, and part of my end of year paint binge for 2020. Despite that. it didn't get finished until July of this year. It's very small, would just fit on a round 1" base.

  10. So I lost my cat of 12 years last month, and this month we decided to adopt a new kitten from the shelter. I was just missing having a kitty around the house and cuddle So this is Basil, a 4 month old ginger mackerel tabby who is so extremely sweet, very affectionate and white well behaved

  11. Another I base-coated at ReaperCon and then finished when I got home! Played with OSL from the crystal atop the staff. The crystal itself wasn’t the best part of the sculpt and as such, it’s not the best crystal I’ve ever painted.

  12. This is the Bones V Catoblepas sculpted by our very own forumite @TaleSpinner. This mini is just so great I had to pick up two of these during the kickstarter. One to paint for the table and the other to take my time with and make into a display piece. This is the one for the tabletop and I'm seriously looking forward to dropping it in front of my players. This critter strikes me as the kind of thing you'd find in a deep water wetland, stinky old algae covered lake, or a deep river in some forgotten wilderness. As I was painting it up I started to imagine how it would live in such

  13. I've got a dozen tiny minis to BUG you with today! A few months ago I purchased these Hell Wasp prints for use as giant flies in Rangers of Shadow Deep. The sculpts are from Rocket Pig Games and carefully printed at this delicate scale by K2C2 Creations. The tiny size came in a set of 12 so I painted them all a little different to get some variety. Giant Flies My original purpose for these guys was as flies in ROSD. To give them some stability and variety I based them on 20mm bases. In each set of 3, one got based standing, one got based leaning, and a third

  15. I made this piece of scenery for whenever I get around to playing some kind of zombie game. It's just foamboard, dowels and coffee stirrers. The image was downloaded, printed, stuck on, and then ruined with lots of washes and the blunt edge of an X-acto knife (Quatro was a soft drink sold in the UK in the 80s; I wanted a bit of a retro look). I added some random graffiti to the back. It was mainly painted with cheap craft paints. The junk on the base is by Reaper, TTCombat and Debris of War, as well as a couple of stones from my drive.

  16. For the ReaperCon MSP Open this year, I painted the master copy of the White Drake I sculpted for Dark Sword (it will be released for sale in 2022). I decided to do him in glacial coloration inspired by a glacier I saw while on a cruise in AK. For the Sculpting story, click here. For the Painting WIP, click here. Oh, and I won a gold medal for him in the Open category. (Bear in mind that that is a 1" base)

  17. So after a substantial break from painting I purchased a new toy….a resin 3D printer (as I don’t have enough unpainted minis). So far I have enjoyed printing some minis even though my favorite will always be pewter. My first choice to paint of the batch I printed to knock off the rust was this pretty lady Nihae. I printed her at 87.5% as Artisan Guild is too large to suit the rest of my collection. She is about the size of a standard reaper mini printed at this scale. I printed some ferns and quickly put her on a base so she is ready to hit the table sometime soon. C&am

  18. Fun little piece. I attempted to paint it in the style of Costa Rican coffee wagons. It was a real challenge, given the irregularities of the wheel surface. I wish it had a donkey, goat or ox to pull it. It will stand upright by itself on some surfaces, but I stuck a block under it to stabilize during photography.

  19. Having painted the set of Reaper kobolds, I wanted to try the pack of 6 goblins next. Some of the mold/flash lines were not nice (e.g. down the center of the face), but I did the best I could. That being said, I'm starting to get in a groove of painting 6 minis at a time (the amount that my portable paint kit can hold). I must say: I'm really enjoying painting potential D&D monsters as a way to practice various skills 😀 I've been working on speed/batch painting, and I think I found something that works to my satisfaction (without an airbrush). From what I can tell, this is the

  20. When I received this Bones 4 mini with my Kickstarter back in the day, he was headless. Reaper sent me a fresh one as they do. I had an extra beholder eyestalk from the Wizkids beholder, and decided to carve it into the head slot and make an aberration!! I’ll paint the normal one to match, and then he’ll be a nice surprise boss in a future dnd game.

Some have been posted here before. Overall view. Some small stands My Monty Python inspired bases Political activists Dead cart Religious procession. More images on my blog if you are interested.

  24. I painted this for Reaper Challenge League (Q3 Large Group: “Under the Sea”). I liked how she was turning out though, so I ended up putting a lot more effort into her than planned. A beautiful, dynamic sculpt by Bobby Jackson, with excellent detail. A great model and a joy to paint. There’s a lot more merfolk where she came from too…

  25. I've been slowly (very slowly) working my way through some of the larger non-humanoid figures in my collection. This one took me about a year to complete, mostly because of the wings. I haven't figured out how to do the translucent effect yet, but I'm getting closer.

  27. Undead King from Bones 5 Core Set. I gave him a backstory of going mad and believing the infestation of rats that brought plague to his ancient kingdom were loyal subjects rising up to kill the "traitors" that actually were just innocent civilians. He rummaged through the corpses of his former subjects and found the means to become a lich and raise a skeletal army to defend his "loyal" rat followers.

  31. Hi all, I wanted to share this Bones V axolotl adventurer that I painted for a RCL trio this month. He is my first attempt at NMM and while I think the breastplate could be a lot better, I'm quite pleased with how the sickle turned out. Not sure I'll ever use him in a game but boy is he cute! 🙂

  32. Finished these as part of my Rangers of Shadow Deep project, so aiming for table top standard. Mostly, just a few washes over a zenithal, and some dry brushing. And a lot of GSWs coagulated blood effect. This was fun! Already posted pictures in my RoSD-WIP-thread before varnishing. I think the varnish tied everything together nicely. Very happy with how they turned out. Enjoy, c&c welcome!

  33. Here's a happy troll family from one of the expansions in the recent Bones kickstarter. I always thought you got more trolls by some sort of budding process. Or by careless adventurers forgetting to burn all of the chopped off troll bits which then just grow into new trolls. Either way, wasn't expecting eggs. Regardless, it's a super fun little troll group and you can just see the pride in mama's big stupid grin in the back there.

  38. This was my first of the Bones 5 to immediately grab my attention…as I stare up at Demogorgon on my desk… I was really feeling a Church if the Silver Flame vibe on her, since the silver arrow and bow are their sacred weapons. Hope you like her!! I actually finished her while sitting at ReaperCon.

  40. Some time ago, I received a set of Drunk'n Dragon miniatures as a gift. I am strictly an amateur painter, having only gotten into the hobby in the past year (well, at least since high school 20+ years ago). The set has five copies of five models, so I thought it would be good to experiment and practice on. I've been progressing through them pretty slowly, but below are what I've done so far. This sorceress was the first one I painted out of the box. I had just finished the Reaper Layer Up kit, so I used the same instructions for that kit's Anirion for this one. The staff she

  41. Hello all you Reaper Acolytes! So painted this one as a gift for a friend, now that she's got it, can finally show it off: A Thumper Standard Bearer, I think sculpted by Richard Kerr. It was so hard not go go all crazy Easter Bunny on this one, so added a few Easter eggs, quite literally. Hopefully his banner is legible! After listening quite often and watching Anne Forester's Twitch channel, one great tip she gave was to start with your free hand using a white base instead of black. I did so this time, so hopefully the banner te

  43. And once again, Halloween and the Coming of the Great Pumpkin are imminent! To celebrate this (and my new painting area finally being functional.) I present Fellclaw... A relatively easy paint, although I did have a moment of confusion concerning the knife in his belt, as I initially mistook it as being folds in the cloth. and here's a comparison shot with Reaper's Rotpatch scarecrow.. One of these days I'll have to put together a cornfield for them to lurk in.

  44. I painted this Frost Death Knight somewhat a while ago. (Cassiatta 77204) This was my master piece back in the days. I was way past the "Learn to paint" kits and was venturing out and trying things. I've been wanting to level her up for a while now. Well! She got it! A frost aura +over9000 to frost damage and the twin ice elemental minions. Both the aura and the elementals are 3D printed. As always, all sorts of comments are welcome! 🙂 Aura: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:446917 Ice Elementals: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4242115

  45. Hello everyone, I hope those who were able to attend enjoyed their ReperCon weekend. It was fun to follow along on Twitch while painting. Here are pictures of 60027, Dorella Kreeg the Ogre Shaman. It's the forth Hook Mountain Ogre model sculpted by David Summers for Pathfinder. It was painted with Reaper MSP paint and stand on 50mm wide base. From left to right; 60008 Hook Mountain Ogre #1, 60037 Hookmaw Kreeg, 60030 Hook Mountain Ogre #2 and 60027, Dorella Kreeg the Ogre Shaman.

  46. Presenting the Frost Giant Heroine from Reaper. Not my best work, I'm still not great at getting all the mold-lines off these PVC minis, plus I was painting her to help work through some issues I was having so she's a bit on the rough and basic side. Was still a lot of fun to paint up though, I'll have to get the other one done now. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

  48. Painted this as part of the RCL 4+ category and thought it deserved it's own show off thread. I really love this model. The size, ferocity, and the detailed base all bring to mind the Minotaur from the Greek myths. I tried to play up the man eating aspect of that by making his loincloth different skin tones cut from his victims. My group recently started using some modular dungeon tiles on the table and so I can see a labyrinth one shot with this thing stalking them through the dark coming soon.
