  2. There is something strange going on in the village lately. People hear footsteps like those of a child, things tends to be in a different place then where they left them. Children have nightmares and seem to be afraid of their toys even. And it's getting worse, it started with a few missing pets, but now Old Lady Harrington is missing, nowhere to be found. Could it have something to do with that new girl living at the edge of the village? Her name is Lilith, and she is so friendly, she gave every child in the village one of her handcrafted dolls for free. B

  3. Hello all you denizens of Reapershire! So been working a little bit more on some Bones V goodness, and today I finished the Female Halfling from the Dungeon Dwellers set: As always, couldn't choose colors, but once I got the colors figured out, it was pretty smooth sailing from there. I have a little bit of flash issues, it seems that plastic flash works a bit differently than metal. I am seemingly merciless with metal flash, but too cautious with the Bones material, but I don't know if that can be noticed or not here. In any case, enjoy and ha

  6. I was not originally a fan of this sculpt as I normally prefer low fantasy but as I painted it, it grew on me. Now I think it will do nicely as a medium construct in Frostgrave… which admittedly has been pushing me into more high fantasy territory. The glass was done with Citadel contrast paints. Feedback very welcome.

  7. In total, 7 different Bob Ross paintings were cannibalized to create these murals. I’d never painted with oils before, but opted to give it a go. I wanted to have awesome landscapes for my players to glance at while their imaginations got immersed in our dnd games. Eventually, I’ll paint the walls something less beige and probably do a thin white line of demarcation to offset them just a pinch from whatever wall color I choose. Though, I’m open to other ideas. They’re painted directly onto the walls.

  8. Hey y'all! Had to skip 40 pages because I just don’t have the mental energy for it, but I wanted to share some happy news. My job search has finally paid off and I’ve been offered an accounting position with an organization that helps people! I’m so excited about! It represents an approximate 10k increase in my yearly income, it has benefits, and my work will be helping people!

  10. So Finally my little Reaperhovians, my first two Bones V figures painted, the Satyr and Faun from the Greek Odyssey Expansion, sculpted by Rainbow Sculptor (sorry I don't know her real name to credit her here, somebody surely will). I think for my first two figures, I picked my favorite one of all the Kickstarter, the faun, and painted the Satyr to make a nice pair of figures. In case interested here is part of the sculpting process for the figures: Satyr and Faun sculpting WIP and then here are my renditions. Sorry so many pictures but these are figures with some

  13. Posting this month, October's projects finished so far (and no sorry I'm not an Orc-tober person). Painting at least one wizard a month is a requirement is it not? When I saw this fig I just luved the Arabian vibe I got off it.

  14. This one took a lot more time than i planned. 2.5 nights of work. The killer of it was all the layers with translucent paint. Keeping them thin to not get streaking was difficult. But i did it and it's done. Proud moment for me is the eye. Done!

  15. Just in time for the season! I happened to be going through some sort of a creativity crisis. I would start on a figure and almost right away stop feeling it. This guy seemed to shake me up quiet nicely. Although, I did get tired at the end and rushed a few things. But, as I remember, the profys recommend "paint more minis" as oppose to sitting over one for eternity trying to get it to perfection.

  17. Torlan will be part of the Dreadmir campaign when it starts up again, however for now he will be stepping in for the third of the Xulgath Spinesnappers the party will be encountering in Extinction Curse. I went for a scale pattern based on estuarine crocodiles rather than an alligator as his snout is a touch more narrow. Plus, it never hurts to represent the locals. I'm happy with how this worked out, although I think I still need to work on my steel NMM. I think when I look bat on this time in my miniatures painting, it will be known as my "Spotty Reptile" period.

  18. This is one of the Townsfolk from the Bones 4 core set, sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I tried a couple of new things on this one. I used clears (Magenta and Phthalo Blue) and Pure White to paint the dress, and the most complicated skin recipe I’ve ever used (3 Reaper and 3 S75 paints). The face turned out pretty well, so I decided to try painting makeup for the first time - she’s a courtesan after all. Also freehanded shoulder blades. This is another mini that was meant to be a quick RCL paint job, but sort of grew legs. In retrospect I wish I’d gotten the metal versio

  19. I thought this guy looked cool as hell and picked it up right away. It's part of the Magic the Gathering range, fantastic range with lots of odd cool stuff. When I got it I did some research as the details were very small and realized the scale of the guy is suppose to be like 100 feet tall, and the little skulls and bones were about 10mm scale. That's no good for me, I want him to lead my ragtag cyclops army in 28mm scale. So I converted him by shaving off all the tiny out of scale details. I used necklace chain, 1.5mm and 2mm chain, with green stuff on the legs. For his collection of shields

  21. Here are 2 Bones 3 ogres I finished in the last few months, Reaper Ogre Matriarch (SKU 77568) and Ogre Chieftain (SKU 77566) . The detail on the goblin was very soft, and my painting progress stopped for a couple of months. But now they are finally ready for some tabletop fun.

  22. Helen the Spartan from Polish company Wargamer LLC (SKU HD-28-38) also managed to sneak into my painting queue ahead of my squad of half-painted dark elves. Helen is from the Hot & Dangerous 2 Kickstarter. I attempted a green marble floor, I think it came out ok.

  23. This is Miguel Zavala's redesigned Umber Hulk, printed on my Mars Pro and painted with Vallejo acrylics. It's a monster I haven't used much, if at all, in my own campaign, but my favourite character of old, Sir Fnord the Pretty Neat died of them twice, both times by having his head ripped clean off.

  26. I found this guy in a set of cheap Jurassic Park knock-offs ("Jurassic Clash" by Lanard Toys) along with a Dracorex, which I had to look up to check was a real thing or not (a type of Pachycephalosaurus, apparently). Quite a good amount of detail for a $5 dino, even if the face is a little "Land Before Time" and the Thagomiser goes all the way up the tail (just what are those shoulder spines?). Still a new white undercoat to hide the old lurid colour scheme and it turned out fine.

  27. I picked up this mini at Reapercon 2019 intending to paint it up for the next year. As it turned out, I hadn't started painting it yet when I started packing for Reapercon 2020. So I got to working on it and surprisingly got it finished in time to enter it into the competition (even though the judges chose another of my entries to judge). One advantage to painting him at Reapercon was that I could ask Jason Weibe about some of the details on him that weren't cast quite as clearly as we'd have all liked (he was great and even found the original render to show me).

  29. Been on a tear lately painting. Been doing a little while I sit through the numerous meetings I am in on that don't require my undivided attention in and that seems to be enough to allow me to get through things at a good clip. I decided to try something different with it, so looked up spider color patterns, and went with a combination of a ghost spider and a huntsman spider. Pretty happy with how it turned out!

  30. Hey everyone, here are pictures of the Tabletop world Cottage I painted this week. I painted it mostly with Reaper MSP paint. The stones were painted with 9088 Stormy Grey and 9089 Cloudy Grey. The shingles were painted with 09028 Muddy Brown, 09030 Leather Brown, 09031 Tanned Leather and 29825 Tusk Ivory. I also added rust effect on the metal parts using 09028 Muddy Brown and 09469 Fireball Orange. I finally added shading with a 09255 Black Wash on some areas to give more contrast to the stones and shingles.

  31. Hello everyone! With Halloween at the door, it promises to be a very colorful month. Here's 01545, Punkin' Headed Bugbear sculpted by Jason Wiebe. This Special Edition Miniature was originally available only at the 2014 Reaper Artist Conference. It was later release under sku: 04044. The base is a 74024, 40mm square plastic base.

  32. Needed a mini for my most recent D&D character. Since she has a pet rat this one fit the bill and it gave me an excuse to paint up one of my Kingdom Death minis. With the scale being a bit larger then the rest of the party, I kept the base she came with to avoid building one that would give additional height. I didn’t add her waist piece that added addl braids and skulls to keep her easier to use on the table. Pinning her gave me some fits as I haven’t done it too much with resin pieces. Anyway hope you like her.

A big thank you to Reaper for organizing this colorful contest and 54 times thank you to those who voted for my creature.

  34. Finished Sturm Brightblade. The print was really faithful to the Larry Elmore cover of Dragons of Autumn Twilight. I wanted to do something fun with this so I went with the sky and earth non metallic metal technique I picked up from a class Ian Markon taught at virtual Reapercon. Seemed like ruthlessly polished armor would fit the character (his grandfather's armor, after all). Hoping the nmm on his mail armor worked, too. Simple technique (mostly dry brush) but I think it looks convincing. Here's the class video link: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dsEum5fBf3s

  35. Good evening my Reaperhoovians! So just finished up this little blister pack of Shadowrun Elves sculpted by Ral Partha either latter eighties/early nineties, by Dennis Mize. Two ladies and two gentlemen, challenge as always was figuring out what colors I wanted for them. Being it's all funky monkey science fictiony, can't help but thinking of a little more lively colors and lively hair colors for the most part. and I figured the last figured I'd do as a Drow, no idea if there are any Drow in Shadowrun but painting's not solving world peace or saving lives,

  37. Finally got the Pumpkin Beholder from Bones V painted up (•‿•) enjoyed trying a couple new things with this in comparison to the Dragon Trappers Lodge one I posted earlier this week. I think this is probably the best eye I've ever painted LOL!

  38. One of the reasons I got this particular model from DTL was that it was similar to the pumpkin beholder from Bones V. I wanted to use it to test out some orange painting techniques I found recently so that I could make sure when I painted the Bones pumpkin beholder I would ahve it down. I am fairly pleased with the results, and have already started the Bones beholder! But, figured I'd share this since it was fun to paint as well.

  39. Another NPC - this time a 'robust' bard, with notions of being a fancy man. The blue vest did not work as well as I intended, and of course I noticed the bare spots on the base after photos - but had fun with the feather!

  40. Today marks 22 years of marriage for my wife and I. Or, as we like to think of it, it's the anniversary of when we let the government in on the relationship. Unfortunately we spent the last day and a half moving an elderly family member into a new apartment and we're both super sore. We were planning on disappearing into the woods for the day, which is our version of romantic. But instead I think we're going to spend the day on the couch taking turns with the heating pad and generally recuperating. Can't think of anyone I'd rather spend the day moaning and complaining about getting old with th

  43. I picked up the Elemental Scion box at Reapercon and absolutely had to paint this fellow. I used the same technique on his flesh that I used on a Fire Dragon a out a year ago and I think it worked pretty darn well. I really enjoyed the cloth and it's a great example of how context effects color. I painted it in a lovely teal, but the yellow patterning pulled it definitively towards the green. This is also the first time I tried doing a fire sword like this. Again, I liked the results. Still need a lot of practice with nmm in colors other than steel.

  45. While I think I probably have enough Vrocks - two of the old school metal Reaper ones (02532), plus an older version of GW's Lord of Change - I'm starting to move over to painting up my Bones collection because a) They survive the journey to game night a little better and b) I need to get through the boxes of Bones I have. While I prefer the more dynamic pose of this one, the detail in the old white Bones is a bit rough. I started painting this guy up like a real-life vulture to get it away from the Lord of Change colour schemes I have on my others (and particularly since it has a

"You bunch of young ums better beware the White Wolf prowling these hills and country side while out seeking lust and gold," sternly told the Barmaid to the adventurers seeking gossip which she did indeed loved to tell, but this group just rubbed her the wrong way, "the She-devil of the woods will eat you alive!"

  47. This model came from a Humble Bundle I got some time ago. It's called Evil Tree, and that's about as much as I know about it. I printed it on my Ender 3, the first print using Tom Tullis' printer profile for Cura 4.11. Lurking in the background there is, as usual, Sergeant Measureby, for scale.

  48. So my wife, who also works outdoors, and I do this little thing where we take pictures of weird, cool, or funny stuff we find in the field and then compare them to see who "wins" best picture for that day. Today I thought for certain I'd have the best pictures with these... First a funny picture of me covered in beggar ticks after wading through a field of different Bidens species: And then this cool picture of a moss and lichen covered log with a mushroom growing out of it: But no, she definitely won with this picture:
