  1. I fell in love with this sculpt the first time I saw it. An enjoyable model to work on.

  2. Have you ever had a model turn out almost exactly as planned? It almost never happens for me. This model is a rare exception. Comments and critique are welcome.

  3. Here's Rowena the Barbarian Shaman 02805 with the gem skull on her wand projecting green light during an incantation. This model was sculpted by Ben Siens.

  5. I love this sculpt. So very dynamic. I really wish I had stuck with traditional metals for the swords. I'm not sure why I went this route. I should have gone with the usual metallics with a touch of blood on the weapons. Cliche for Vampire minis I know but It does work I guess.

  6. I was surprised how much fun I had painting this guy - grabbed him at the FLGS just because I needed something to paint predominantly green and he was about the only option other than goblins!

  8. The four mummies from Bones II. These guys were super-bendy - even after being boiled and iced 3 times. They shied away from every brush, file and knife that came near them, hence the intact mold-lines. Despite that, they were quick and easy to paint up - just primed in brown liner then 3 layers of dry-brushing topped of with a wash of AP Soft Tone.

  9. Finished this earlier in the week. I tried something a little different with this one. I usually base coat using black, white or a combination of both. I went with a Walnut brown base coat this time around.

  10. This mini had broken in our not so recent move (umm 17 years ago). I decided it was time to repair it, so awesome husband glued it together for me and I repaired the paintjob where it had flaked off. If someone knows who made it I would love to know for my records.

  14. Quick work because sometimes you just need to finish something. It's not special but for an hours worth of work its a pretty good concept mini. Sorry for the poor pics but it's all I had at the time,

  15. Some tabletop Lemures from Reaper Bones II and Center Stage miniatures. In D&D 5th Edition, the lemure is probably the wimpiest monster in the whole book, I think a standard goblin can kill at least 20 of them. Reaper Bones 77326: Center Stage Miniatures 003:

  17. So these are my next three minis; an Archer Gnoll, A Warrior Gnoll, and an Ogre. I know it took long enough since my Dad posted my first minis(If you haven't seen them either search, " 14 year old girl paints some minis or go to this link-->http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59637-14-year-old-girl-paints-some-minis/?hl=%2Byear+%2Bold+%2Bgirl+%2Bpaints+%2Bsome+%2Bminis).

  18. This is a bust of Rear Admiral John Adophus Dahlgren, United States Navy officer during the Civil War who initiated major advances in gunnery, as founder of the U.S. Navy's Ordnance Department. It is a digital print of a digital scan of the bronze bust displayed at the Main Gate of the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren, VA. The bust is sculpted by Theodore Augustus Mills (1839-1916). The digital print is about 2 inches tall. Dahlgren was of Swedish descent, with fair hair and blue eyes, though officers at his time used boot black to darken their hair. He had a small scar on his forehe

  21. got started on my hydra from KS1. Decided to go mordant hydra. Acid spitter. Thought it would be a nice change from the green and grey versions. So I blocked out the color sections. 9024 Amethyst Purple and 9248 Moth Green. Had just a few stray brush strokes. There are a few spots that will need cleanup before I start shading.

  22. Had a great night at my parent's anniversary party last night. The knew something was up, due to my aunt overselling the reason to go to the restaurant, but they were still surprised. Much fun and merriment was had by all. Now I'm dealing with a sick child. Not sure if she ate too much or just happened to get a bug, but it has been a long morning. She's finally back asleep so keeping my fingers crossed.

  24. Finished up the back of the shawl, yesterday. Forgot to photo it. Well, I plan to get some more painting in so I post it later. I blocked in my tentative color for the belt & boots. I also put down a yellow coat for the area I plan to paint up gold. And I also put down a base coat for the wood of the staff. The plan is to paint the top of the staff as crystal (most likely blue).

  26. Can be, because of the moisture in the air, wind, &c. I know I've frozen my fingers on a 55° night on the quarterdeck with the ship berthed on a river, and I've been uncomfortably warm and had to strip layers on a 55° day inland, camping. The thermometer doesn't always tell the whole story.

  31. So, I've gotten a first sift through the box. Mail arrived about 5 minutes before the first member of my Saturday D&D group arrived. Barely had time to post the post in the other thread before hand! So, the first thing I did was wait for the other players so the box could be opened and perused together! Awesome stuff! I may have a few tough decisions in the near future!! GF

  33. Thanks all! I tried the brush on sealer- it's still fairly matte, but I'll add a layer of gloss medium later and see if that works. I think I'll go ahead and enter her over on CMON just so I don't run out of time. I probably do need to tighten up the painting on the rocks... maybe tomorrow! In the meantime... I has a new plan!! I found a use for my pumpkin man! The sign will read something like hole #? sand trap, and I'll set it up like he's dug himself deep! Title: Four! I have to admit, I just was going to paint the head as an example for my skintone class, but I love this

  34. I painted this mini about 25 years ago with Testors, and I was very very proud of it at the time. So proud I brought it to my first GenCon for the painting competition. When I got there, I realized the paintjob really wasn't that great compared to the top entries. I guess that scared me away from painting competitions until I started entering the very friendly competitions here on the Reaper Forums a couple of years ago. This then gave me enough courage to enter 3 figures at ReaperCon last year, where I got a silver, yay. Enough rambling, here is the Grenadier Manticore from long ago (

  35. No painting time yesterday, took a basic drawing class. I want to start branching out into 2D painting, and I'm starting with the fundamentals of pencil sketching. It's going to be a loooong hike. On the other hand, I was happy that my still lifes were turning out better than the gallery owners because she was drawing the shapes as she learned in school and I was drawing the lumpy, misshapen versions on the table! Anyway. This afternoon was paint time! I made some decent progress on El Deadpimp, and check out the schnazzy leopard print on his pimp coat! Yeeeah! Now on to the me

  37. Ah sweet wonderful D&D.... how I love and miss thee. We had a good game last night, lots of RP, plenty of silly, and a Quest for our two little level 1 characters to undertake. We've also found out what the other is (half-ifrit for my character and half-leprechaun for the other, though mine doesn't know what a leprechaun is). Once my character learns what a leprechaun is, we can be all like, oh so we have wishy stuff in common, even better that we travel together, we can watch each other's backs. Though, the way Hubby set up our characters, neither of us can grant any wishes until 9th leve

  39. Spent a fun evening at the phone store getting my account sorted back out. All four lines suddenly went to emergency calls only, had to physically go to the phone store since I couldn't call anyone. Someone in NY managed to hack my account change the address, change the primary phone and walk out of the store with 4 brand new iPhones. Everything has been reset and passwords changed and a secondary password added to my account. When I call the T-mobile fraud unit on Monday those four phones will just become paperweights which sort of saddens me because the perps, I'm sure, will have already dis

  41. For the March bonus challenge I found my old Dwarf on Stilts figure. This figure is among the very first that I ever bought for myself. I think I painted it when I was about 10 years old back around 1982ish. I used Testor enamel model paint on it. I always thought he was using the stilts to walk through water for some reason. The Bonus challenge said paint a figure as a LEPrecon from the Artemis Fowl series. Looking into that I found out that one of their rules is to 'travel over water whenever possible'. Thus I present to you, Corporal Dermin Stormbrow of the Lower Elemental Planes Pol

  42. It took forever, but I'm finally ready to call this guy done! Originally my plan had been to finish him in time for last year's Giants contest, but well, he sat neglected for a month or two as the holidays were super busy. This was the largest most involved figure I've ever painted. He was a real challenge, in many different ways. From the endless teeth and bones to paint, to fighting with the snow to get it looking how I wanted, to even photographing him at the end. A big thanks to Michael Proctor for his painted versions, as they were a huge inspiration and helped

  43. So here is what NightyKnight (my oldest son) and I took: I took: - Echidnox - The Magic the Gathering Basilisk - A bones goblin - Blue Moon Alchemist Lab - The Spartacus bottle - Candy - Chains (some of which may be making an appearance in a mini I'm sculpting right now) NightyKnight took: - 2 Rohirrim - Urk-hai pike soldiers - Bones Mummy - Bacon flavored cocoa I'm still working on what I am adding to the box and have to find time to paint the good knight. NightyKnight came up with a great addition though, but...no spoilers. Andy

  47. I never saw the third Mummy installment, but I must've watched the first two (and George of the Jungle) a hundred time. Brendan Fraser's a-ok in my book. Next AP I want to play/pick up is Mummy's Mask. This is mostly unrelated. And I think I'm out. Peace.

  48. Thanks! I really tried to do them like you do but I could not grasp it. I am thinking of tracking you down at con and have you demonstrate. Little, by little, things are getting done. I did the calculations and I actually think I can get everything done. I only have a few small updates for today and I need everyone's opinion on the diorama mock-up. First we have two bases, Magda's and Tinley's. Magda's is as done as it can be for now. Once she is on it, it will get some snow and icicles. Tinley's wall is done and the rose vine is painted black. Next step will be the actually color o

  49. So after posting I decided it was time to get this one started as well. So I work on her a bit. Then I took a picture of her progress. Here is an example of why I need to Photo the eyes before I highlight and shadow the skin. I thought it looked great in hand. But up close and personal I think the her left eye need some slight correction. As well, many have bemoaned how harsh the camera is.
