  1. A day in the Marine Corps is like a day on the farm! Every meal is a banquet. Every paycheck a forture. Every formation a parade! I love the corps. So, I've been hitting these a little at a time since the game was released. I haven't played the game (as I mostly want to recreate the old Leading Edge Games game), but I'm sure I will eventually. On with the show: These are from images I posted over in Off Topic. I just realized last night that I'd finished (or nearly so) over half the box! The eggs and facehuggers were

  2. Hello all you Reaper Acolytes! So painted this one as a gift for a friend, now that she's got it, can finally show it off: A Thumper Standard Bearer, I think sculpted by Richard Kerr. It was so hard not go go all crazy Easter Bunny on this one, so added a few Easter eggs, quite literally. Hopefully his banner is legible! After listening quite often and watching Anne Forester's Twitch channel, one great tip she gave was to start with your free hand using a white base instead of black. I did so this time, so hopefully the banner te

  3. Got home from Reapercon and felt the need to paint something. One of the characters my son wanted to play was a shapshifter and I didn't have much in the way of animals so I grabbed some Reaper animals. I wanted some human figures as well and with the new Signium faction coming out in the new year I decided to add to my Cadwillion and lions. None of these pieces are exceptional but certainly fine for tabletop and produced in 4 days works for me Hope you enjoy

  4. I was unsure which of my hundreds of unpainted bones minis to attack so I asked my son to choose one. A demonkin paladin. I also included a baby basilisk because it wasn't my best paint job and I didn't want to create a unique thread just for a janky bad guy that will probably never be used. . . Great, now I have to make a baby basilisk encounter.

  5. White Gigalion from Kingdom Death: Monster. I really liked playing around with the color shifts with this guy. And yes, his victim this time is not a chibi.

  6. Dave and Pete were a couple of drinking buddies who worked as aircraft engineers in Darwin, Australia . One day the airport was fogged in and they were stuck in the hangar with nothing to do. Dave said, 'Man, I wish we had something to drink!' Pete says, 'Me too. Y'know, I've heard you can drink jet fuel and get a buzz. You wanna try it?' So they pour themselves a couple of glasses of high octane booze and get completely smashed. The next morning Dave wakes up and is surprised at how good he feels. In fact he feels GREAT! NO hangover! NO bad side effects. Nothing! Then the p

  10. This is the Bones V Catoblepas sculpted by our very own forumite @TaleSpinner. This mini is just so great I had to pick up two of these during the kickstarter. One to paint for the table and the other to take my time with and make into a display piece. This is the one for the tabletop and I'm seriously looking forward to dropping it in front of my players. This critter strikes me as the kind of thing you'd find in a deep water wetland, stinky old algae covered lake, or a deep river in some forgotten wilderness. As I was painting it up I started to imagine how it would live in such

  11. Well, it's about time I actually post something in this section, since I've had a WIP thread going for a little more than a year Here's a piece from Rotten Factory, though I believe this particular figure is no longer available. I really love their stuff, and have a half-dozen others to paint up. Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I LOVE putting verdigris on things; I've realized it's one of the most satisfying parts of mini painting for me currently. I also like doing the sickly/rotten flesh. I'd say this is around a tabletop standard, maybe

  12. Silly monster films. Modern kaiju are cool and all, but they lack the charm of the old style stop motion or a man in a rubber suit. I've been pretty lucky, or at least I was until this year. Don't really want to go into details on a public forum but the last few months have not been great. Then again, it could be a lot worse and I'll probably get better eventually. Painted would be my version of Dance of Death, mostly because Julie Guthrie is such a phenomenal sculptor. A friend of mine calls my version "Angry pinecone vs icecube"

  13. September 11th, a day of remembrance that many of us will hear about today. Here are a few other events you might not hear mentioned that occurred on this date: 1297 – Battle of Stirling Bridge: Scots jointly led by William Wallace and Andrew Moray defeated the English. 1522 – Ulisse Aldrovandi, Italian ornithologist and botanist reckoned by some to be the father of natural history studies, and the driving force behind one of the first botanical gardens in Europe, was born. 1792 – The Hope Diamond, which weighs 45.52 carats, was stolen along with other Fre

  14. So, I signed up for Paramount+ and started watching on my computer. And it started skipping. I decided I'd look for an app and turns out that there is one. I put it on my old $20 phone and... There's no skipping. Like, at all. I guess I figured out what the problem is. The only good news is that Lower Decks is as good as I imagined it. However, I need to clean my apartment.

  15. Postmortem time!! I made it safely back to Michigan after a not unpleasant couple of flights. I'm thankful the nasty weather blew itself out so the delay was only 45 minutes in Detroit. Still, the water in the basement was kinda unfortunate. Ok, so ReaperCon was a rousing success. All the events were well-attended and the attendees seemed happy. By all accounts customer satisfaction was very high. People were required to wear masks in the hotel and in the convention areas and for the most part everybody complied. Wearing a mask for 3+ hours running games was a drag but oh well. Att

  17. Been a bit too long since I did some painting so I decided to finish off a few piece, a TSR halfling thief that I'd primed... around the time of my birthday last year... or was it the year before...? What is even time anymore? And also a goblin cutter from the Legend of Drizzt board game, which I'd primed up and started work on a few weeks (months?) ago and just kind of lost inspiration. They came out a lot rougher than I expected, unfortunately. And the photo of the halfling makes his skin look deader than it looks when you see it proper... EDIT: SO the next day feeling a lot

  18. I received an angel kitty from @OneBoot that she painted as a surprise gift for me when Marmalade passed away, and I keep it safe and sound. It's still one of the most touching gifts that I've ever had.

  19. You can say he's a happy dwarf to be out of his hole, I must be painting too many Bronze Age minis, because to me he looks like he's about to give a very enthusiastic sermon on the mount. @Glitterwolf I like the Brutus bust the best; it really does look like him. Do they make it in German Shepherd?

I have a virtual job now, & a few other virtual opportunities as well. Hopefully the next time I post to this thread, I will be doing so from pleasantly warm Manta, Ecuador! Damon.

  24. If I tried really hard I could probably come up with a top 50 favourite minis, but picking just one is too much. Heck, I couldn't even pick a favourite mini out of what's on my painting desk at the moment (Currently it would be a tie between Angry Warrior Lady and Fancy Elven Archer (Not my pictures), although that opinion would undoubtedly change if I had another look at my desk).

  25. I made anice lunch this afternoon for me and my girl. For those who don't like ( or know how) to cook... There's no cooking involved. It's all about presentation. Two kinds of Hummus, Olives, Bread, Apple, Grapes, Red Bell Pepper ( from a jar, peppers in garlic oil), Sundried Tomatoes and Feta Cheese. You can of course switch any kind of these things for something else.

  27. Thanks for the interest! ReaperCons of years past featured Dreadmere gaming four years in a row. Savage Coast/Brinewind were featured for the past two years. There are two Landlubber's Guides and I'm working on the supplemental Wylot's Addendum. Next years setting is to be announced. We have tons in the works so stay tuned. >>ReaperWolf

  30. Nothing impressive, but I got my replacement Hawthorne Krabbe and Poppets from Reaper. In my original RCon swag, I had the poppets, I had Krabbe's left arm, but not the main body itself. Now I have one Krabbe, two left arms, and six poppets! There some interesting potential with this many minions.

  31. That's difficult. I don't think I can really choose one. Stuff I painted and consider among my favorites ( The Owlbear was a gift from @Corsair, I painted it, The Asian Dragon was a gift from @Kangaroorex which I also painted), The Boxer Bust resembles Brutus.

  32. Some time ago, I received a set of Drunk'n Dragon miniatures as a gift. I am strictly an amateur painter, having only gotten into the hobby in the past year (well, at least since high school 20+ years ago). The set has five copies of five models, so I thought it would be good to experiment and practice on. I've been progressing through them pretty slowly, but below are what I've done so far. This sorceress was the first one I painted out of the box. I had just finished the Reaper Layer Up kit, so I used the same instructions for that kit's Anirion for this one. The staff she

  34. @Glitterwolf Thanks! Wish I had gotten to this level of detail the day of, but I don't like being rushed 😉 Here he is after five hours. Really coming together well. Need to finish up the "ropes" on the clubs, and the wrappings. Not sure if going with a bone color on them is the right approach? What color would you all recommend to compliment the other colors but not be "out of place" in a swampy environment?

  35. Minis and Terrain list for Quarantine 37: A PSA from GKA [WARNING. POSSIBLE SPOILERS.] ***** TL;DR: a box or 2 of zombies, and two or more of bugs. No other new minis listed.

Zombie Shoot: 4 1" square hatches; usual sci-fi clutter; 12+ plague zombies 3. Power Conduit: 6" diameter island with 2" wide moat, with a 2 storey tower taking up most

  36. I lthink a big shift in the numbers was the lack of the gaming population. Last con, all of the game tables for the societies/leagues were packed (PFS & SFS and AL). While I did see some representation the tables didn't see as full and I had heard that some games had to be canceled due to lack of players or GMs. I would venture that a large number of those extra 1600 were gamers whose main focus is not painting but gaming. I know that I talked to a bunch of people at the game tables last con that didn't paint. RCon die-hards might be more likely to show up for this years

  37. Got another game in, this time a demo for 3 new players. We used a 4 by 4 board and played the Spaceport scenario. I'd not played with the pirates/unwelcome attention rule before and its brilliant. It really encourages you to run off the board.

  43. Welcome to the finicky world of 3d printing. why isnt it working today? are the stars misaligned? did a butterfly fart in the amazon? did the plug fall out? Does my printer just hate me? Does the printer hate the printer i am trying to print? is it Friday? Is it Monday? is it the weekend? all of these are valid reasons why we cant get the printer running....

  45. Well, I bought an Ender 6 during their Kickstarter last year and by the time it arrived we were preparing to move, so it was never assembled. However, with the move and other priorities, I had not assembled it yet. Well today the g'niece Emma was over so we assembled it. Now, the beastie will not work. Gonna get a new SD card and hopefully that will work....waiting Baby Yoda is.

  46. Just one? That's a tough call. I've got two on my work from home desk that always cheer me up a bit when I'm stuck inside doing paperwork instead of kicking around in a swamp somewhere. So I'll say it's a tossup between them. The one on the left is a happy little dwarf from Bears Head Minis and the one on the right is what I'm assuming is an Entling from one of the Reaper familiar packs. The dwarf is so excited to be out of his hole and in nature that he's stripped off his armor and is dancing about in his knickers. The Entling has his own little glen with a pretty li
