  3. SO with the discussion on care & feeding of brushes, & I do love my brushes, I decided to spring for some Winsor & Newton Brush Cleaner & Restorer. While I was placing my order the thought of the polymer clay mushrooms I watched being crafted on YouTube came, unbidden to mind. Ergo a couple of blocks of Sculpey, some sculpting picks, AND an Amaco Polymer Clay & Craft Oven rounded out the order: It was a Martha Stewart moment.

  4. Hello forum family, I wanna share with ya all my most recent fatigue: Marthragul! I was in doubt if painting it into a realistical Earth dragon, or something more colourful... The Magenta won! :D And I chose to don't cut corners, so no drybrush, no washes, no feathering... just dear, old layering, shading and glazing ...cause I'm a fast painter, as you know And, yeah! This took me almost a month of at least two hours per day... basically I hate this dragon now Enough talking, time for pics :D I really hope you like it, if you have any question do not hesitate :) As always

  5. Pinnacle Entertainment Group ran a KS for The Goon Comic RPG. Included in the KS were eight metal miniatures. Despite the unique setting of "zombie noir", some of the miniatures can be used in other genres. I'll be painting the miniatures, starting with Merle the Werewolf. Obviously, he can be used as a generic werewolf, although his eyes are white, not the usual red I use. Bases were made from the OOP Happy Seppuku narrow wooden plank texture stamp, and miniatures pinned with the Army Painter hand drill. With extra paint, I painted some very old Grenadier werewolves, and an Against the Dark d

  8. Lo! These many years ago (13, to be exact) my brother and I were going to start gaming with a friend of his. I rolled up a druid character and was prepared to play her. Then the friend left town and didn’t come back for a few years. I have long since lost the character sheet for this druid, but I still had the mini I purchased! I never expected to paint her, but here she is! 03094, Maralise Moonscythe and her parrot!

  9. A few previews from yesterday's Bones 5 Live episode: The Fan Favorites Hellborn and Landsknecht 3d renders: They don't know if the the Landsknecht will come with two head options? That is a Ron question; they were just speculating, based upon the fact it was rendered with and without the helmet. They also showed the concept art for both the above models. The Hellborn was shown with what looks like a flanged mace included in the concept art. They speculated it might have a weapon option with the model? Pure speculation, though.

  10. Inspired by the weekend question, I took some pictures of the army thus far and found that posting it in the question thread would be excessive, also that I didn't have an ongoing thread for my largest painted army so here it is. The plan is to get my Shelf of Incompleteion cleared off then work on reinforcements for this alongside my Old School Undead army. Here we have the Pumpkin construct unit led by a Storybook Witch from Old Glory. I have 3 more of her, but the bag only came with the one flight stand and the Reaper ones I have don't fit, when I get around that, they'll form th

  11. Hi everyone, sorry I haven't posted in a while. I mostly post on the Reaper Facebook Page and Twitter now. I still check out everything on the "Show off" every day, though! Here is my most recent tartan project. This is Aeslin sculpted by Sandra Garrity. My customer is a fan of the show (and books) Outlander and this figure was chose specifically for it's potential for painting a tartan. The tartan that was picked is the Wilson Ancient Hunting Tartan. It has these very thin quadruple orange lines that give it a very interesting blue/green/orange colour shift look. I was onl

  13. These three done. Really happy with her face. Up next, trying to do something with these three. Not feeling terribly inspired by any of them. Need to look up the artwork for the Alkemy figures in the back. Aaannd.... christmas lights are up.

  14. After going back to Darius and repaint him I decided to do the same with Domur. Like I did with Darius, I'm posting both versions, the first I painted and the current one. I kept both since I had two or three of them. For the first one I tried a scheme similar to the official one: on the second, a more conservative fire look. First Domur (2018) 2nd Domur

  15. This guy has been sitting in my collection a couple years. Finally painted him up for someone who wanted a Van Helsing feel to him - dark, leathery, bits of red. Also wanted the book to glow. I feel I could have done better on that, but the indication is there.

  17. Magos maniplus and her servitors. Unlike most of her rank she has opted for gigantic legs as opposed to magnetic levitation, because you cannot stomp on people if you have no legs. She fought to a series of pyric victories on the planet of Aleusis. She delayed but could not stop the forces of chaos from claiming the world when the planetary defense forces fell apart leaving her to fight a last stand with the remaining mechanicus forces.

  19. While I've been collecting Undead almost since I got started in the hobby, it wasn't until a few years ago that I decided to create a Halloween themed force. Behold, the Army of the Great Pumpkin... (Stuffed onto the middle shelf of my hutch in varying degrees of comfort.) Trying to break this down on a unit basis will clog the thread, so I'll just give an overview here. Part of the army is the traditional Halloween force of spiders, pumpkin dudes, and skeletons. Another contingent is based on the idea that a dead witch can return as a vampire or werewolf, and utilizes these as well

  20. Thanks. I spent a bit of time on the cats so they'd match the ones I did ~15 years ago for my Warlord army. Was tough matching paint colors they don't make any more. The rats I did very simply with a thin wash of brown liner and then some ink glazes. It's really sunny and nice today and we're going to do christmas lights at some point this afternoon so I may not be as productive today.

  21. Happy St Andrews Day everybody! I'm finally feeling better, which is a good thing because we're heading out for some early Christmas shopping today. We managed to get tickets for the Chinese Lantern Festival tonight, so expect an absolute ton of photos at some point tomorrow. This year's theme is 'Lost Worlds' so there should be a lot of prehistoric themed stuff on show (including Dimetrodons!)

  22. Hey, It's been a long time since I posted anything here, I've been busy learning about new materials and especially casting the new materials, which is resin. Casting resin is a whole new world to learn, you can get the same results as with wax, but unlike wax that can just be attached to a tree and burnt out cleanly, resin needs more prep work: Some needs curing under uv-light, some curing + annealing (which is basically boiling the prints), some cannot be in contact with water and so on. Been taking baby steps and have slowly changed the variables and I'm finally starting to get

  23. And chasing the Witch from my previous post are these guys... Other than a few highlight touchups, and basing these guys were mostly completed during last years Thanksgiving Challenge, so finishing them for this years seemed appropriate. Jacob Knockengard, looking like he could use a drink and a warm meal after smiting a vampire. The face of a man who has earned a sandwich. Abraham Van Helsing, proving that in the 1800s medical professionals were known also for their elf kicking ways. (see also Doc Holiday) GW Talisman Witch Hunter,

  24. painted up 77040 Satheras, male warlock as a Drow and used it as an experiment to test out Coal Back and Styx purple. really happy with the results though the purple ended up more like dragon red at the end. Also was the first time with the Dark elf skin triad, really liked it. also on the scroll I looked up an eldritch font and wrote out Cthulhu fhtagn

  27. Going to see Frozen 2 for my birthday movie soon. Gonna bring my cushion because I definitely broke my tail bone. Hand is doing better, though I need hubby to help me dress and everything. My fingers are a lovely shade of grey. I’d love to have a tub to take an epsom salt bath right now.

  32. So... I have discovered the problem with buying wine in boxes. And why channeling my drunken relatives at the liquor store is a bad idea I hoped the box of wine would last a week. When I bought the box of wine I posted that hope here ironically, or so I thought. Normally a box-worth in bottle form, 3 litres aka four bottles, would last me an entire month. Instead the box is... almost empty. After a week. Which... is about the level of drinking I used to involve myself in when I lived in Los Angeles with family I should... um... get more wine? Or... dunno...

  34. the only one i'm getting is dungeon dwellers. I just love the sculpts. I'm torn between Greek, Japanese, or favorites for number two. Some fun creatures but not quite enough for a solid sell. Mostly I'm buying add ons and one offs like the dragons.

  35. Arch with ice sickles - #22 This arch is going onto a Frost giant base, technically making it a diorama. Doesn't tell much of a story though. "giant guards arch" I likely won't paint tomorrow. So this is it for the Mini challenge. I passed my goal of 20, and did more than last year. total success.

  39. DH and I successfully tag-teamed dinner. He did the bird, I did the sides. Took the popovers out just before the turkey hit temperature. Microwarmed stuff while DH carved and plated bird. Then there was brief comedy as we tried to remember how the timer on the camera works so we could take our annual selfie. I think my eyes are open in this year's pic. :) Too full right now for pie, maybe later. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. May you have much to be thankful for.

  40. Thanksgiving was pretty good. We had it early, as lunch, because one of us had to work (insert rant about stores being open on thanksgiving), but it was good. My brother in law has six cats, so Sephy was continually excited. A couple of them were even chill enough to let her touch them. The others... well, let’s just say she did a good job of keeping them off the table oh yeah, and that insurance agent wants to sell you that policy. A fellow agent was bending over backwards to try to sell a guy insurance, but it turns out you can’t buy it, at all, if you have a suspended drivers

  41. Dinner consumed. Smoked Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans, sweet potatoes, gravy, and rolls. Turkey was ok. I left it on the grill a little too long so the white meat was a bit dry, but the dark meat just fell off the bone. Guess I just need to practice more. Anyone else watching the parades and analyzing the shadow and highlight placement on some of the balloons?

  43. I had a thought about this today. Rather than try to match the organizational system and out of stock cards that WizKids uses, Reaper could publish a catalog with a curated selection of minis organized into various race/class combos. IE, a page of "human fighters" or "elven wizards" showing 4-8 pictures of minis, and the stock numbers/names of 6-12 more. This would give customers in stores a quick and easy way to identify appropriate miniatures for their desired PC just as quickly as browsing the WizKids selection. (Of course, finding the right stock number buried on a wall full of Bon
