    I had an idea for how to make a fairly quick colour shift effect, and wanted to test it out. Spent the last couple hours working this guy up.

    So here's the text from the update. I hadn't realized this beauty was done by @Rainbow Sculptor! I hope they're offering a choice and not a random...the wording seems vague to me. "At the same time, if we can get 5,000 social media engagements, we'll be adding this Gem Dragon by Christine Van Patten to the Core Set! The Gem Dragon sits on a 2" round base and will come in a translucent color (undetermined at this time) OR in translucent clear." And here's some background text for the Brinewind revenants... And another @Rainbow Sculptor treasure was hidden at the bottom of the update: Well, just discovered there's a whole thread for these Siren/Water Nymph/Nereid figures by @Rainbow Sculptor: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/88552-nereids/&

    Wow! Tricksy Rainbow Sculptor. Clever ReaperRon. Having a Bones V sneak peek hidden in plain view like that. Well done! I don’t know how this is going to be presented, but it’s a great encounter set. I could see this being a fun way to set up players. And I find I’m really liking Rainbow Sculptors sculpting. Between these and the kid sculpts, I’d call RS’s sculpting style playful. At first I was going to say leaning towards the animated/slightly cartoony... but I think playful is more apt.

    My female cat is finally getting more cuddly. I've only had her for like 3 years now, and she's finally getting to the point where she chases me down looking for attention. She let's me hold her for more than a few seconds at a time, and she actually sits on me now! She also sort of lays down, but it doesn't seem relaxed. Unlike my male cat, who just flops down however he feels like, she basically lays down like the sphinx when she lays on top of me. And the slightest twitch from me causes her to stand back up most of the time. But at least she's coming around. Maybe eventually she'll be more like Ed and just be a floppy cat. But I doubt it.

    Here we have 77281, a Succubus. Sort of. I needed an ice queen for an upcoming game, and I liked the pose of this mini. But the NPC I had in mind lacks wings, and only fights with one dagger, made of ice. I removed the wings by putting the model in the freezer for a few hours to make the superglue holding her wings on fragile; after that I was able to just snap the wings off, leaving a large hole in her back where it was attached. I plugged that with green stuff. For the daggers, I just cut off the one she had in her right hand; and then cut off the blade of the one in her left hand. The replacement blade came from my bits box. Back when I was working on Narthrax the White in 2017, I bought a bottle of Distress Crackle Paint in their "Clear Rock Candy" color. As part of my experiments with that, I just painted a bunch on some wax paper, let it dry, and then broke into bits. I didn't wind up using any of those on Narthrax, but one of them fit the bill for a blade made of ice on this figure. I also used some more of that distress paint on the base -- it didn't turn out quite as well as I'd hoped. The stuff hasn't been touched in basically two years and was beginning to harden up. I've added some fluid to hopeful restore it, but in the meantime it didn't make crackles quite as impressive as I'd hoped. Ah well. Anyway, after I was done painting her, I just glued an ice chunk on where the dagger went.

    Here's the final Nereid all finished up! Check out the final group photo of all these lovely ladies here: https://i.postimg.cc/J0cV86Vb/Final-Group-Shot.jpg Thank you guys for following along, it was really fun to be able to share some of my process and thoughts behind the designs. This was a really fun project! I'll be sure to update this thread with information about how to get a set of these when they go into production!

    A fairly relaxing paint job, I took pictures at various stages and pasted them below. No idea if it's helpful for anyone or not :P

    "Even the man who says his prayers / Before going to bed at night / May turn to WOLF when the wolfsbane blooms / and the moon is high and bright." --Apocryphal rhyme DOCTOR. A very pestilent disease, my lord, They call lycanthropia... In those that are possess'd with 't there o'erflows Such melancholy humour they imagine Themselves to be transformed into wolves; Steal forth to church-yards in the dead of night, And dig dead bodies up: as two nights since One met the duke 'bout midnight in a lane Behind Saint Mark's church, with the leg of a man Upon his shoulder; and he howl'd fearfully; Said he was a wolf, only the difference Was, a wolf's skin was hairy on the outside, His on the inside... --The Duchess of Malfi Body horror, puberty, loss of control, loved ones acting out of character, cannibalism, madness, things more savage and bloodthirsty than we thought man or beast could be--it's a rich vein of horror. The further back you go, the more blurred the distinction between vampire and werewolf and witch becomes, but as a general rule what we now consider to be vampires are specifically betrayers of hospitality and home; like de Rais and Bathory, they commit their crimes behind closed doors. Werewolves, on the other hand, are given to savagery outdoors, in the lanes, under the moonlight, in the moors and lonesome places. It is appropriate then, that Julie Guthrie's werewolf 02139, is named DuChamps--of the fields. Here he is, in form much more wolf than man. These two pictures are behind the Spoilers tab because, while Julie did not necessarily have to sculpt Jean-Paul's werescrote and transmogrified lycanthrodong, she did that. She did that for us, because she's a PROFESSIONAL and doesn't take shortcuts. I don't think it rises to indecency, but better safe. Will delete and link if the need arises. Next up. the truly monstrous Werewolf, 77009. Those familiar with the role-playing game "Werewolf!" from White Wolf will recognize this as a Crinos form. Enormous, savage, horrific. This is about a 50/50 mix of Man and Wolf, but with the features dialed up to 11. I had fun painting hair on the smoother human limbs. And lastly, a Nolzur's werewolf I had on the Shelf of Shame. This one is mostly human but with a wolf's head and claws. A note on the full moon: it's just a Nolzur's disc base painted white and poked with paintbrush ends of varying sizes during the drying phase to simulate craters. I may have to do some more of this with discs of different sizes and colors for Spacefuture shots, because multiple moons convey Other Worlds the way zeppelins convey Alternate Histories.

    *starts flipping through the Sculpting threads to see if there any more hidden gems*

    I wish sirens were already out. I intend to have a siren encounter at some point in the upcoming future. I need to make sure that our ranger bangs a walrus. He's the only one who has been interested in getting lucky. Obvious target to mess with - sirens lure him to the walrus ladies... the walruses get funky.

    Now we know why there are so many undead pirates... Rainbow Sculptor, that thing you do is pure witchcraft!

    Good Morning all! Microwave shopping today! (microwave discovered last night it couldn't heat milk for hot chocolate). Hope your weekend is going well!

    Halleluja, more skeletons. I was wondering how it would look with DDS2 myself. I don't see Reaper splitting up the boxed set any time in the future, though. Hmn. That's an option, because it is kind of a cool piece. Or you cold get two and make them book ends.

    It's been a long but rewarding day. Nereid number 4 is Complete! I have to say she is my favorite of the set so far. Only one more to go! I'll update the group photo and post soon!

    I am accumulating quite a collection of pretty plastic and metal things here! Got my Scale75 order, including a 72mm scale one of a very aloof looking succubus. I opened it up to take a look - the sculpt is so clean! It makes most of the metal ones look like pretty rough by comparison. I was almost afraid to touch it, not to mention painting it. I want to be able to paint that much skin at something approaching the level of the box art ... Demogorgon first - zenithal priming him tomorrow. Wish me luck! Also got my Murkillor and another Sophie - the 54mm snowboard one. Got the ghoulie bag and pounder of course. I also asked for the purple sample paint, and got that and a pale pink/purpley one that looks like it could find a place on that Scale75 succubus! Got some Airheads and tootsie rolls this time. I did say before that I love Reaper, right? Just making sure.

    Thank you! I'm excited too!! Yes, there is both the issue of wanting to stick as close to the original intent of the set (to maintain some modesty) as well as printing/casting issues to consider. It isn't ideal but I am still happy with the end result. :) Thanks for checking out the thread!

    Waitaminit! I just saw a very familiar-looking nereid in the latest B5 update! Are these going to be in the Deep Depths expansion?!?

    There are perfectly sound underlying reasons for most all purchases, no matter how outwardly frivolous they may appear. I did plan on making a Living Impaired Pirate scene (I have a bunch of the mostly dead Buccaneers in backlog). Both Cap'n John & I fell in love with Madame Delia who will, in my case, provide stiff competition for Fast Flo. AND the Devil made me do it. SO here is what arrived to day: 03964 Drowned Nymph Ghost: Banshee 03965 Ghost Pirate Cook 03966 Ghost Pirate Quarter Master 03967 Ghost Pirate Captain 03968 Ghost Pirate Bosun 03978 Madame Delia X 2 44054 Damaris, Duskwarden 44089 Jade Fire Shaman (a soon to be Goblin Witch/Heart Throb) 01031 Ghoulie Bag 44010 Dark Dwarf Pounder (reinforcements for S. White's Gang) The next couple imminent arrivals are in the order of necessary crafting supplies . The Devil is off the hook on them.
