  1. Hello Reaperdeepers! So got this one finished, a classic Sandra Garrity figure from her Ral Partha days, Ciera the Swordmistress: not sure if it's noticeable, but as I had asked Anne Forester this morning on her Twitch show about chainmail still having empty, unpainted holes. This is what I was referring to. I did washes and it didn't get into each every hole. As per @dks I need to get in there and individually try to fill them. I'll try that for the next figure, t that is what I ended up with for now. Anyways, a small and simple figure, fun to

  3. Good afternoon all you reaperfiles! So I haven't painted anything by Sandra Garrity for the longest of times, so I'm glad I started this little figure up, Ellana Dragonmistress, a female druid she sculpted long ago for Ral Partha. Beautiful little figure with her traditionally petite eyes. The hardest part on this one, besides the eyes, was deciding on what colors I'd use. As I listen to a lot of Anne Forester's Twitch channel over lunch and she talks so much about color theory, I always wonder if my colors match or not, but ultimately, without a color wheel to whip out, I end u

  4. Hello everyone, here are pictures of a dragon I completed Yesterday. This is a Ral Partha 10-463, T'Char Dragon of The Flame and Fury sculpted by Sandra Garrity in 1992. I bought this model in 1993 and assembled it in 1995. It has been on a shelf all these years. Itโ€™s a pleasure to see it finally painted. This amazing sculpt is 175mm tall, almost 7 inches at the top of the wings. The original model comes with a nice base around which I added more rocks and branches. I made the flames with Liquitex heavy gel and 3d printed a 125mm wide base to complete the vignette. Nowadays, this 12-piece drag

  5. Good evening all you Reaper Spirits! So just finished these two, that I think to belong in a single blister, but not quite sure. Ral Partha High Elf fighters, a male and female. With High Elves, I always have color issues, but end up invariably towards blues and grays. Just a few of a great number of elf figures Chris FitzPatrick sculpted for Partha back in the day! Enjoy!

Then painting him I wasn't happy with how his skin was looking but thought oh well, just finish him. I ended up liking him again once he was all finished!

  7. This is one of the Bones USA miniatures that came out around the time of RVE to promo that event. It is totally going into my Shadowrun-ish game at some point. There's an old argument in SR about whether to run a "black trenchcoat" or a "pink mohawk" style of campaign. I'm a fan of both and this mini is perfect for either style my players decide to go. I wasn't sure where to go with the bike (I don't paint a lot of vehicles). But the handlebars reminded me of a Norton my dad had when we were kids. It was red and white. So I just picked those colors and went from there. I'm really hoping this i

  8. I would not usually purchase much from Mierce Miniatures as they are a boutique manufacture with boutique prices. They do hold regular sales on their miniatures and the miniatures are spectacular so if you can catch a sale just right then it is worthwhile. This is the Mรณrannach, Beast of Cill Chonn Bog. It was painted almost exclusively with thin washes set down in layers with minimal highlighting. Used all of the supplied branches to add more roots to the arms and legs. Added a small tree and a few mushrooms. Used lots of vegetation on top. He is set on a 70mm base. Her

  10. Hello again my Reaperdoodles! here is the second one I finished just yesterday, a female giant from the Arcana Unearthed line that Iron Wind Metals puts out, sculpted by John Winter. I've always liked this figure since the first time I saw her, probably a decade ago, but finally got around to painting her. Hardest part as usual was to try to choose the colors, but hopefully the palette is pleasant enough. I don't know anything about the Arcana Unearthed game or system, but she's listed as a giant, which looking back into the early nineties, sh

  12. Two dragons from 2 different times, done with the same colors. Basically I had both of these on the table and I decided to just use the same palette for both First up: the Panther dragon from Ral Partha. This guy is a long snakey one, his tail was very difficult to get to but overall fun to paint. This mini just seems to ooze stealth as she slips round alleys and empty streets making people disappear. This miniature has been sitting on my shelf for decades because I liked the art and the figure but I just didn't know what to do with it. I finally just broke down and said I am

  13. Etherfields has some strange miniatures concepts. I wanted to embrace the dreamlike quality of them all by giving them a unified mood. So all of these minis use purple shadows and pale green highlighting.

  14. A quick job for myself of a few hours time. Since most of my painting time is commissions of late, a quick break for myself was needed. Just two figures to go and the base box and about half of the KS extras are done. With the sequel on the way, I need to hustle my way through the rest of my pledge.

Landwryms are cunning wingless predators that ruthless scour their environment for prey, some claim that they represent a more primitive ancestor of dragons .... they lack magical abilities or the breath weapons of cousins but are well adapted to their environments. The gargantuan Desert Landwyrms are serpentine with yellow-brown scales that blend with their natural surroundings. Their powerful front and rear claws are normally held tight against the body. They are cunning and patient predators who lie in wait for victims. Conversion included removal of wing slo

  19. Hello everyone, here's the result of my first attempt at sky and earth non metallic metal (SENMM). This Dark Heaven Legends model 02023, Tolzar Righteous Arm was sculpted by Sandra Garrity. I started painting it during RVE (Reaper Virtual Expo). I painted the cape as I was following along Ian Markon's class on blending through Layering and Feathering. I then painted the freehand at the bottom of the cape during Brice Cocanour's Beginner Freehand class. I finally painted his armor, shield and hammer head using the SENMM technique. It's my first take at Sky and Earth Non Metallic Metal. I did my

I have never tried to do such pale skin before and I haven't decided whether I got it right or not. The other pictures are set in the dungeon where the players are going to encounter her.

More pieces by Bob and Julie Guthrie round out the setting, including some Bog skeletons and 03479 Murder of Crows which is expanded to create a backdrop.

  26. I bought this miniature back in April of 2020 about a month after I started painting thinking in all my inexperience that it would be an easy paint job, but when it arrived in the mail I took one look at it and was like NOPE! And into storage it went. Fast-forward a bit over a year and I was still dreading it but decided to tackle it anyways. Here's the finished product.

  27. I finished Brother Lazarus here this weekend. I did Sister Hazel around the start of lockdown. I wanted to experiment with a few things, chiefly light effects and stains/ dirt/ mud. I need more practice, but I'm satisfied with how he came out. The Spy vs Spy theme isn't original to me, but they beg for it and I'm easily led. Comments and criticism are welcome.

  28. Hey everyone, it's been a while since I posted. I was working on a large model. I painted this terrain piece mainly with Reaper MSP paint. The stones were painted with 9088 Stormy Grey and 9089 Cloudy Grey. For the non-metallic metal (NMM) copper on the roof, I used 09030 Leather Brown, 09031 Tanned Leather, 29825 Tusk Ivory and 09039 Pure White. Then, for the verdigris I used a blend of 29848 Jungle Camo, 09294 Alien Goo and 09282 Maggot White. The shingles were painted with 09028 Muddy Brown, 09030 Leather Brown, 09031 Tanned Leather and 29825 Tusk Ivory. I also added rust effect

  29. I got into a groove this week and was able to paint a mini a day. At this pace I should be able to get all of my minis painted in 3,7 years (I kid, it's really only 1.4 years). I have this vision of having everything painted for about three hours and then the doorbell rings with my next Reaper order and then I'm happy again. As I finished the week, I started to think of these minis as part of an adventuring party. There is a wizard, fighter, thief, cleric, milk maid, farmer, monster.., all the standard classes represented. Barrow Warden Mystic Broth

  30. Hi! ๐Ÿ™‚ I see myself as a somewhat of an advanced beginner at mini painting. After painting minis on my own for some time, I became interested in revisiting the instructions from my Layer Up! kit. This was the only figure I had left, so I went with it. Overall, I had less fun with it comparing to when I was just starting out. That's because I felt like the instructions were pushing me in directions that I did not want to go. The place I've struggled the most with was the sash. I could not understand its layout, until I looked at the metal version of this figure. At which poi

  32. Lysette here is a Reaper model made with their newest plastic formulation. She's got some great detail on her. This whole piece was driven by the color of her dress. I love that wine red color and I don't use it nearly often enough. That drove the choice to add the yellow notes and the deep red for the leathers, both of which worked out pretty well. I tried to add some deep burgundy to the flesh shadows (though my photography didn't pick it up all that well). I did some freehand woodgrain on the staff and figured it wouldn't be complete without some lighting effects. I think the rune

I added claws and eyestalks to make the Malifaux mini look less spider and more crab, with some a touch of the repair bots on Farscape. The warmachine has some added details including the small clockwork dragonling on its shoulder for aerial reconnaissance. The terrain the background is a mix of Dwarven Forge and Monster Fight Club, which were originally factory painted but I gave the pieces some of my own personal painting touches. Feedback welcome!

Black was used as the deepest shade for everything here, as I'm practicing 'Comic Style'. I'll be making a video on the subject once I'm a bit better with it.

Not altogether happy with how the tentacles turned out and I still can't do smooth transitions from dark to light on cloth (well, anything), but overall, quite happy with how this turned out. Lets see the little sods darlings backstab this one and dispatch him in two rounds.....

The rightmost swordsman had a miscast, so he got a spider shield from my bit box. He was originally dual wielding. From the back you can tell that his hand is not really there.
