  1. It's been a long time since I painted a dragon. It might be a long time before I do another one. This took me nearly six months of painting nothing but scales. Once I had the scales done the rest of it was pretty quick. The galaxy effect on the wings is something that I learned from a Reapercon class and have wanted to do on dragon wings ever since. I'm sure it's not new, there are likely others out there, but it's the first time I've done it and I like how it turned out.

  3. Hello All, Here is a recently completed 77054 "Galladon, Human Wizard". I did have to make changes to the staff. I could not straighten it out by any means to my satisfaction. So, I cut off the original staff, drilled a hole in his hand and replaced the Bones bendy plastic staff with a brass rod. I cut off the bottom and top of the plastic staff, pinned the parts to the brass rod and there you go. Thank you for looking.

  4. Hello All, Here is a metal 02716 "Demonic Lasher" aka "Demogorgon" I completed a few weeks ago. This is a metal miniature and is a bit heavy. It would be nice to see an updated version of the Demonic Lasher miniature from Reaper. Though this one does look very much like the original Demogorgon illustration in the original D&D Monster Manual. Thank you for looking.

  6. Hello my little Rearperlificos! so tonight just got finished up and photographed, a male and female fighter in plate armor, sculpted by the enigmatic Jim Johnson (one of those sculptors I know nothing about but has had a hugely prolific career) that he sculpted I think back in the nineties when he did a range of figures for Partha, which were a male and a female version of the same character class. I've already painted up a bunch of these different figures, and these are my most recent ones. I wanted to do red as their breastplates, helmets and grieves with more bronze tones than gold, after seeing Anne Forester working on bronzes in Twitch with the Kickstarter V Centaur. I'n not ver happy how the vertical bronze strip came out on the male fighter, but buh, too lazy to really keep fixing to perfection. Also, this is the second time I took pictures of these figures because there was lots of crud, dust and hair on the figures the first time. I went back and rephotographed them a second time and I still see a few little dust spots even though I knocked a bunch of them off. Anyhoos, here they are for your viewing pleasure: the female: The male: and being they were originally sold in a blister pack together, here they are in the same photo: I would usually put them on bases but the gal has a wide base that is a little too big to fit on the one inch base, and I didn't have a slightly larger base sitting around so I just sealed them really good and am going to leave them like that. In any case they just sit in a display case, a display case in my unfinished basement that nobody except myself ever sees, oh the humanity......

  7. It's been a long time since I painted an LOTR mini, so I thought I'd paint 4. These were painted using coat d' arms paints and AP speed paints. Of note, after applying the speed paints I added a wash of Argax earthshade which waterproofed the speed paints and completely stopped the reactivation. This also happened when I painted my generic monster hunter from crooked dice. I dismissed it as a fluke with the intent to test it again on a different mini. Well, I tested it again on these guys and again, the reactivation issue was stopped dead in its tracks.

  8. Painted this guy up as part of the RCL. But I liked him enough to go ahead and show him off just a little bit. First off, this is the first time I've thought of a dragon I painted as a he instead of a she and I'm not entirely sure why that is. Maybe it's the big old head on this thing - I feel like I might be associating it with some sort of fictional dragon I can't place. It's not driving me crazy or anything, but it is annoying not being able to come up with what I'm thinking. I had originally planned on painting this in much more detail. The idea was to go over every single scale bringing the whole thing up from Tropical Blue through to Bleached White over a series of increasingly lighter blues. But after doing all the scales that way twice I totally lost patience and just dry-brushed the last few colors. I still managed to really like the outcome. This is the first of the large dragons from bones 5 I've managed to finish up, and the first white dragon I've ever painted. Got to be honest, I was kind of concerned about going with white for the scales. I was worried it would turn out either too flat or the blue with the white would look really bad. But I'm pleasantly surprised. Anyways, enough rambling, here's the dragon: Cheers all and thanks for looking!

  9. 3D Printed on my Elegoo Mars. Mini: BitetheBullet Helmet: CastNPlay. Base: Sculpted with Milliput over a plastic base. Part of my Shifting Sands Project https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79372-shifting-sands-glitterwolf-paints-egyptian-undead/page/24/#comments ********************* Young, Beautiful but foremost...deadly. Kalista served in the Lion's, the elite guard of the High King himself, but when she refused his "attention" she found herself in the Arena. And there to the King's dismay, she not just survived, she won, over and over again and she became so populair that in the end the King had no choice than to set her free to please the crowd. These days Kalista is for hire as a mercenary, she leads caravans or nobles safely to their destination among other "jobs" ... Her reputation is often enough to secure a safe passage. And should some robber not know her? Well....what happens then is just adding to her reputation. There are rumours that Kalista even volunteers to fight in the Arena again but only for the right price. *************************

  13. I'm very excited with how these fungi turned out. All Reaper paints. I was really happy with the colorful mushrooms on this one. I'm always a little worried about getting too much of a rainbow effect, but I think it worked well here. I 3D printed the smaller stalagmite bases. For the larger one I 3d printed parts of the base and then used green stuff to make the water channels. Very happy with this one. The stalagmites on the left are all 3d printed but I cut them apart and made more own base. I'm happy with the strong color transitions on the crystals on the right, but overall I think it looks very unrealistic. I'm particularly happy with how the eyes turned out on the big guy.

  14. Some of my June projects so far. She was one of the necromancers I had primed this month and the first one painted. I had gotten this figure so long ago and picked it out of my loose figure bin. Don't ever remember from before as her being labeled a hellborn and wanted her to have pale flesh so she could be used as a vampire as well if need be.

  16. ...try not to make a fuss, he charges $25 for autographs. Alt title: "The Rock (giant) wonders just who this jabroni is, getting painted first." Well Rock, this guy has only waited about 38 years to be finished, so... He spent all that time partially covered in Polly-S Mezzodaemon Deep Red (demons are red, dontchaknow), but old Sharky wanted to see him in Retro Slate. Wasn't really the most fun mini I've painted, but I like him now he's done. He'll make a good chaos spawn or other warp entity.

  18. My 3d printing journey continues. I Decided to make a diorama featuring an early villain from the DnD game I'm running. I Give you Lord Malman! Or as my players referred to him Lord BadMan. Almost all elements where 3d printed. And purchased off my mini factory. The Nelfeshnee was from realm of paths. The necklace and other jewelry was added by me with good old greenstuff. I'd love to here what you all think. More pics can ne found here. https://www.instagram.com/p/CeCPkH1OBGS/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=

This is 02759, Dena the Barbarian sculpted by Dennis Mize. The Gravestone of Protection 77539 was sculpted by Julie Guthrie and the Shrine is a 3d print by Aleda at Gothic Things.

  24. After a long day on that dusty trail, a man has needs. And while sometimes a man might just go round behind a cactus or a rocky outcrop, other times a man's in mixed company where that just won't do. Now, ain't nothin' to be ashamed of, just a part of livin', that's all. But sometimes--and praise the Lord, it ain't often--it's the last part of livin'. "whut in tarnation...?!" But when it's your time to go, you gotta go. *** A little sidenote on D&D monsters and their origins: We all know that pulp and sci-fi influenced the creators of Dungeons and Dragons as much as fantasy does (displacer beasts came from a van Vogt space opera, and I'd bet money that orcs--pig-faced brutes in early RPG art--got their green-skinned tusky look because D&D precursors included Tharks from Barsoom until the Burroughs estate sued.) But where did the Mimic come from? It's hard to tell, but there are a few strong possibilities. First, Wollheim's short story "Mimic" from 1942. If you haven't read it, do so--it's a great little pulp yarn. The titular mimics aren't the amorphous sticky oozes we know today, but they conceal themselves almost perfectly as mundane people--and, more importantly here, objects. Secondly, and perhaps most convincingly, Philip K. Dick's 1953 story "Colony." A tale of paranoia on an alien world, and probably also where we get the Rug of Smothering. The alien threat here is pretty much exactly like our D&D mimics, formless organisms that can take on any shape (and do). Thirdly, John Bellairs' "The Face in the Frost," published 1969. This is the first gelatinous amorph masquerading as a building that I've seen in a fantasy context--though it isn't clear whether the entity in question is an organism or a magical construct, or if there's a meaningful difference. Anyway, all those 'what if the WHOLE TAVERN was a mimic?!' suggestions? Been done before the moon landing. Lastly and returning to this post's genre of Weird America, Manly Wade Wellman's John the Balladeer stories. Our hero Silver John rambles about the Appalachian hills encountering strange doings and stranger critters and haints. Among these is the false house or 'gardinel.' (John doesn't know why they're called that.) \ This last isn't a certain influence because it's mentioned only briefly in a 1963 short and brought up again in more detail in a novella written after the Monster Manual came out in 1977. But you never know. I for sure don't. I think this will work just fine for a little Western gardinel.

  25. This is one of the fantastic miniatures from Bombshell Miniatures. The fine details on their miniatures make them really fun to paint and they have a slightly more realistic style than the usual miniatures that I paint (Reaper). It was a nice break from what I usually do. Most of my focus on this one was to apply things I've learned from Reapercon classes and to practice painting skin. I finished this one several months ago and just now got around to taking pictures. I was pretty pleased with it when I finished it but now I see a few things that I would probably do differently and hopefully better. Continuous improvement, I guess...

  27. This is Sushanthe, one of three sea elf sculpts I was able to find. I painted her up as a Dargonesti Elf as part of my Dragonlance creature project (she's 53 out of 156). First off, I love the sculpt. Great pose, sells the idea that she's gently floating, that mass of hair looks wonderful. It took me a while to figure out what to do with her base and the armor bits before I finally did the obvious thing and did an image search (black, twilight blue, and pale lichen if you're curious about the base, snow shadow, sorcerous mist, and surf aqua for the armor). Her skin is almost entirely ezren blue and mint green in different proportions, with a bit of nightmare black for shading. Comments and criticism are welcome.

  28. Well, after finishing a giant dragon that took me forever to paint I decided to paint something smaller by choosing a miniature that is completely covered in metal and decided to paint it all using the NMM technique. It was probably more than I was ready for but I think I'm getting better, it's finally starting to look like metal. Any critiques or feedback are welcome.

  31. I needed some assorted carnivorous plants and these guys (from the Stoneskull expansion from Bones III) fit the bill. I tried to base them on real-life lilies, although the black "teeth" bring to mind dragonfruit. I'm reasonably happy with the green blending on these - for some reason, green is a colour I struggle to get right.

  32. The Frost Salamander from Nolzur's has a wonderful chunky head and heavy-jawed face, and that won me over. It also has six legs, so not your average Earthly amphibian. Good thing there's always room for planetary monsters! And it's a great canvas for patterns; salamanders are often brightly spotted or striped. Let's make him a denizen of the steaming swamps of Retro-Venus! More angles: Bombshell makes some amazing sci-fi ladies and this is one such! I took some liberties with my interpretation as a Venerian Amazon--the sculpt indicates that Wanda here is wearing leggings or tight pants rather than the singlet I painted, but her headgear, belt, and boots fit very nicely with Hydra's Valkeeri sculpts. More angles: Let's put the two together! Why does a huge predator need vivid warning coloration? Well, on Retro-Venus, there's always another, bigger predator. I *do* love putting bright colors on weird beasties. Hope you enjoy!

  39. This was fun and relatively quick. I used metallic paints on this one, trying to practice using them. I'm not sure I got it quite right but I learned some things doing it. Not much to say about this one. It was pretty fast and easy. Weirdly I'm having a harder time getting my head around how to use TMM than NMM. I basically did NMM but using metallic paints and I don't think it worked very well here. Any advice anybody wants to give on how to paint TMM style on miniatures would be welcome. Also, how to add rust, or verdigris to metal. That is something else I have not done successfully, I added some red to the chain mail but I don't think it looks like rust.

  42. Hi all, Time for another photo dump of my painted miniatures from the past few months. I never want to spam the show-off forum so I have to save them up for my forum pals. πŸ™‚ Quite a mix here, I’ll label below each. Most for Reaper Challenge League in one way or another. Axolotl paladin Dorf! Caster-y lads Northumbrian Tin Soldier β€œCreep” Tartan dwarf and my growing unit of dwarves from the Crypt set. Sneaky lad A very Bruenor-esque dwarf from Knightmare Miniatures Foul sorcery! A 40k Dark Apostle. The jury is out as to whether I will paint any more 40k… Gnoll more Mr Nice Guy I love this model, what a delight to paint I was commissioned to copy my earlier Fillyjonk, here is round two! A 3D print norse guy. I’ve been reading the Symbaroum core rulebook lately, this guy would fit right in! Tiefling pirate, this is a great model. Looking forward to seeing him in bones in Bones 6! Another tiefling. I’ll admit, the tieflings were in June! Lastly, a whole bevy of folk from Northumbrian Tin Soldier painted quickly for my sister. As always, thanks for viewing! Let me know if you have any faves. πŸ™‚

  49. Let's get meta!! "Now where were we...let's see. Last session you had crashed Miss Minver's jalopy in the cemetery in your attempt to stop the cult. The Professor's apotropaic rituals and Xiufang's first-aid skills kept you alive while Sirhan's Vickers gun and Lady Rutherford's etheric disruptor devastated the cultists--but not before the high priest's chanting reached a crescendo! An awful rift forms in the fabric of reality, swirling with colors beyond human description--and from it, with a horrible squelching sound and a smell like an electrical fire in an aquarium, a forest of loathsome ichor-slicked tendrils protrude, flailing hungrily towards you! Roll for Sanity!" 50231 is brilliant, containing three flavors of tabletop geek. These are wonderful sculpts, from the dice bag on the trim GM to the soda in the large gamer's meaty hand to the young lady's minifig case. I feel like I know these people already. More pics: A furnished basement, much like many others. Shelves of books and trinkets on the wall, a table with a map and several figurines atop it. BUT! this basement is about to become an escape to other, weirder, more adventurous realities! You know the Nerd from 50091 will be here, maybe the Chick too. Not-Velma most definitely would roll some polyhedral dice. When the gang's all present, we can begin! Perhaps on an alternate week, another game: "The scent of mildew and rock dust is heavy in the air, and the sound of dripping water echoes from somewhere nearby. You would guess Saraneth's sorcerous witch-light, glinting off crystals the size of tree trunks, is the first illumination these caverns have seen since they were formed in the primeval chaos. --Liliander, your elven senses pick up faint movement from beyond this cluster of stalactites--a dark-dwarf ambuscade! Between Red Serris's sword and Ulma's bombs, this shouldn't be much trouble. ...But wait! Vistaril, as the reverberations of your thunderwave subside, they are answered by another...deeper...rumble--coming from below! Everyone make a Dexterity save!" Click for more forays into other genres! Let's take a bow, nerd to fellow nerd.
