  1. Hello Reaperboreans! So here's just a straight off basic old fashion barbarian, who you may vaguely recognize from the movies:

  2. Finished the Djinni Sultan from the elemental scions set. The efreeti is already done and the dao and marid are both started. I really like these sculpts and they all really demand embellishments. The jewels and the bottle in particular were fun (thanks to Holk's Workshop for those techniques). First time I tried a lightning effect since I painted a massive blue dragon last year, too. Comments and criticism are welcome.

  3. I painted this frost giant as part of the 4+ category for the RCL with a group from here on the forums. I've been wanting to paint this for a while, but kind of lacked the motivation to get going on such a large and detailed figure. So doing this as part of the above group was a good way to get started on her. Once I got the first few layers down I really enjoyed diving into this one. It was kind of a fun challenge to paint that much brown and blue without repeating the same shades over and over. And the reindeer, at least that's what I'm assuming is on her back, is just a great detail that really set this figure apart from other giants I've got around here. Took about a month to get through all the stuff on her. But in the end I think taking the extra time was worth it. She's probably one of my favorite minis I've painted this year. Cheers all and thanks for looking!

  4. Hello All, This is the first non-Reaper miniature I have posted here. It is a 3-D printed 32 MM RN Estudio miniature "Itaka, Pin-Up Rogue." I completed this miniature last week. Thank you for looking.

  5. Finally got back on the painting wagon after a three-month dry spell. Been wanting to paint this one to try out new stuff. Big one was trying to make the hair look like flames. Went with a darker smoldering look, hopefully pulled it off. Also tried a cracked lava base. The rest was trying out my new Reaper metallic paints, Dragon Gold, Dwarf Gold (both in the armor), Bright Bronze and Clockwork Brass (sword hilts). Tried to make the face on the pauldron look like a leathery green ogre face as a trophy piece of armor. Overall pretty happy with my first go at these; as always CC is welcome! Enjoy!

  8. I painted up Terezinya, one of the models from Reapercon 2022. I painted her for my Dragonlance games, Chemosh's colors being black and a sickly yellow. I put her on a Dragon Forge base and tried to tie that in a bit. Not sure it's the finest example of anything I've ever painted, but I tried some fun light stuff. So, next step: make the light less bad. Not sure there's a simpler way to get good 😉.

  10. I was dreading painting this mini. Not because it was difficult, but because I wanted to do it justice. As you may know, Ciri is one of the principle characters in the Witcher and we all have an image in our head of what she looks like (this image may be aided by the video game). Not sure why, but I really struggled with the highlights on her flesh. I am usually pretty good at painting flesh but for some reason I struggled with Ciri.

  11. As I often do during fundraiser projects, I tried to focus exclusively on Stonehaven Miniatures while they had their recent Kickstarter. i actually finished these back in October and just totally forgot to post to this forum! Some had been WiP for quite some time. I've been experimenting more with Speedpaints and found them helpful in pieces I found myself less motivated on.

  13. Princess Laurana from the Heroes of the Lance box set from way back when. She didn't have her original Dragonlance, so I gave her one from a Reaper weapons pack. All Reaper paints, notably blackened brown, leather brown, carbon gray, and the warm light brown triad.

  14. I bought this Yoda pack from a local hobby shop when i was on a work trip. I got it for my friend who's a massive Yoda fan. This is the second one from the same box. Came out pretty good. I am very happy with the fade on the saber.

  16. I though I had posted this here for Halloween, but it looks like I didn't. Here is a Blood Bowl team that I made from some Reaper Minis. Most of the skeletons are made from Mr. Bones, while the Tomb Guardians are made from Wraiths and a Jack O Lantern pack. I decided that the pumpkin headed bugbear would make a good Werewolf Star Player for this team.

  18. I haven't known what to say, I still don't. Ed was always so nice to me; he had such a kind light about him. Like many of us, he changed my life in so many ways and I hope he knew how important he was to so many people. He knew me mostly as Kwindylarue from the streams, but my favourite thing he ever called me was "Buglips' lovely wife". He had this nice way about him that made you feel like family. My heart is broken for everyone who knew him and I hope we can all keep our best memories of him in mind. Here are pics from when Buglips put together the "I ❤️ Ed Sculpts" silliness at Reapercon and all the peeps that got together for pics with Ed: And my favourite twitch clip of him: https://clips.twitch.tv/ScrumptiousHyperRhinocerosPartyTime-R7Q-qHqYtRezfB9J?tt_content=url&tt_medium=clips_api

  20. Finished painting Dr. Puke and his Zombie Beast from Warlord Games "Project Z" game. The good Doctor allows you to change the zombies in the game from an obstacle to a faction. Lots of nasty tricks in his bag! 😜 Fun pair to paint. I Americanized the Beast by converting his sign from round to octagonal. Course that meant I had to freehand the STOP part! Should have pencilled it on first! Ah well.

  21. Possibly my favourite model from the release and I think the best ever Bronze Golem. To honour the myth that Talos was crafted personally by Hephaestus I have gone for a "Celestial Bronze " look rather than patinated/verdigris

  22. What I really love about this model is its modularity--inside and out, top and bottom, there's detail for a splendid backdrop almost everywhere. I've used the base as a stone floor in other vignettes, but finally got around to punching up the ritual circle and the interior detail. Fun with gradients! First, the circle itself! So versatile! Seen here with some Nolzur's scenery and Reaper cultists. Next, the outside: But what lies inside? (I love the spooky interior, by the way--reminds me of the sculpted paneling in the 1999 movie The Haunting.) Could it be used for licit magic? Brother Louis and Brother Roberto are certainly willing to give it the old invisible-college try!

  23. Hello all you Reaperphonics! So today's mini is a Druid, originally sculpted for Kenzer and Company under a miniature line they had for a number of years and afterwards sold to Iron Wind Metals who produces him nowadays. I have no idea who the sculptor is, maybe somebody else does. I've always liked this figure. Like so many of the Hackmaster figures, he's kind of a bit chunky and "raw", but he's got a goodly amount of personality, and was enjoyable to paint. I did notice that I've been painting a lot of purple pants lately, need to stop doing that.

  24. Hi everyone, I just completed this lady with a broom from the 02825, Townsfolk V set. She was sculpted by Bobby Jackson and is also available in Bones version under sku: 77088. It's a pretty simple model, so I decided to go with a little freehand. I painted her eyes as if she was looking downwards. I think the expression on her face makes her look like she's mad because the floor is dirty or something like that (maybe there's a rat in the kitchen).

  25. Just starting off The Wild Beyond the Witchlight and I thought I'd share my character's mini. Lorcan is a youngish Firbolg Druid who has shut himself away from society after an unfortunate accident has made him terrified of hurting those around him. He rarely speaks above a shy mumble and much prefers the company of forest creatures to civilised folk. He is a radical pacifist and refuses to intentionally harm any sentient creature, lest his darker side emerge again. Lorcan has reluctantly agreed to help the warlock Madryck Roslof find out what has happened to his patron, after the old man showed him kindness and guidance as he got used to his new found powers. I had pulled out the pack of Nolzur's Male Firbolg Druids, but they're a little more self-assured in their demeanour. Then I remembered that Bones V had a trio of beautifully sculpted Firbolg Wildfolk. This mini was a real pleasure to paint - such clean lines and a enough blank canvas to try out a little freehand. The expression on the face suits what I have in mind for Lorcan's childlike innocence. The Wild Beyond the Witchlight bills itself as an adventure which one can complete without entering combat, so I think I might test that with Lorcan. My wife is playing a Bugbear Barbarian. We'll see how that works out.

  27. Happy weekend to all! So this figure I'd painted I don't know how many years ago, and over the last years or two wanted to paint her again because I felt I could do a better job on her with years of experience behind me. So here is the updated version of this figure with different colors and hopefully better highlights and shadow, different color selection, and with this on I really didn't do much more than a green stuff flattish base because the figure itself is so small that when you start putting stuff in front and behind it covers up that ground level detail, you hide the hands for example. Also with this newer version I think I found things that I didn't notice in the first figure, I think two rings on her hands and in the shoes, she actually had some open space where skin was exposed that I didn't notice the first time. I have to say that both of these versions were horribly difficult to photograph so don't know how well they came out, she's small and has some odd angles to photograph. Anyhoos, here's the newest updated version: And here's the original version that I'm guessing I painted I don't know how long ago, maybe ten years earlier? She's kind of a weird figure too, because assuming she has that chainmail under her shirt and then over her pants, it kind of makes me wonder how well that was actually thought out or how it would work, but equally it's not actually chainmail, but just some fabric and I've been perceiving it erroneously as chain mail all these years. Anyhoo, which version do you like better? Let me know what you think!

  29. Almost all undead until I had to paint some PC elves edition and finally got a better back drop edition. Pretty happy with this month! Good spread of stuff from "I got this just this week", all the way back to a mini I've had for longer than some of the people I play with have been alive.

  32. I have worked through a bit of my end of year painting and modeling funk. Early nights tend to sap my enthusiasm. Saying that I managed to get these done. First some Northstar Skeletons. I tried to give the impression that they are freshly risen with old kit. Next is an Otherworld Litch Lord. It goes along with my other two from Reaper and Hasslefree. This will give some options for the Thaw of the Litch Lord campaign we are currently hacking through at the club. Some Otherworld shriekers. I am planning on picking up several packs of both the Reaper and Otherwold shriekers to do a big field. Lastly are some stirges. I mounted them from the rear on springy flight stands. It gets rid of the plastic post base, is more stable, stops most accidental bending of the wire, allows for more realistic flight positioning and they tend to blend into terrain visually. Hope you like.

  33. Just in time for my game to be put on hiatus until 2023, I finished a bunch of minis intended for Rime of the Frostmaiden. A Frost Giant Skeleton from Titan-Forge Dogsleds from EC3D Coldlight Walkers from MZ4250 Mephits from DuncanShadow. They were all printed in clear resin to use as Ice Mephits then done as individual elements after the encounter that called for 12+ of them Ice Spells from Crippled God Foundry

  34. First come the green meteors. They come from a particular region in space, and a given year may see anywhere from one or two events to a dazzling display that outshines fireworks. (Do not look at a shower event without adequate eye protection!) A meteor that lands without burning up completely is like to see peculiar plants grow near it. They share some qualities with normal plants like the bird-of-paradise plant, the sundew, or the genus Nepenthes but otherwise differ markedly from standard Earth flora. A remarkable mobility and incredible response-patterns to local environmental stimuli are among the most notable. They have a specialized organ, a lash extending from their central bloom, coated in a sticky, debilitatingly painful neuroactive compound. Do not let this touch your skin. Do NOT let it get in your eyes! They are also very fast-growing. And aggressive--they actively fling the lash at nearby sources of (heat? vibration? some combination of the two? Research is ongoing). Infestation is common in tropical and subtropical regions if the population is unchecked. Multiple subspecies have been distinguished within the original Trifidus tripes, from the temperate-zone and unpredictable T. t. wyndhami, to the monstrous tropical T. t. horribilis. It is sometimes hypothesized, usually by sweaty and unreliable cryptobotanists, that rapid evolution is on the cusp of producing speciation events, including the proposed classifications Trifidus ambulans and the conjectural T. anthropomimus. Fortunately, this remains the province of wild-eyed crackpots and can safely dismissed as the rantings of an overactive imagination.

  39. I had enjoyed painting Galderial from RN Estudios and thought I'd give more of their sculpts a try. I really liked the ones from the "witcher contract" series and I had thought she was one thou she wasn't she just seemed so familiar to me somehow. I was browsing thru pics for ideas for colors when I ran across a Larry Elmore pic, "Lyssa" and bam. Of course now I had to try and copy his work as I can't see her painted any other way.

  41. Pretty sure that this was a Reapercon freebie and pretty sure it's from Moonlight Minis. Pretty sure she's supposed to be a gnome monk. What I AM sure of is that she'd make a great kender monk, a charmingly non standard character. Used the red hair triad on her tunic as a reference to Majere, the Dragonlance God of Monks. 9033 golden blonde got a workout, too.

  42. Finally, this nightmare is over with. It seemed to take forever because of my "poor planning," waiting for basing parts, painting the succubi before I had a base idea, etc, and I am not really satisfied/happy with the look because of it. But oh well it's done !

  43. Painted up Anuminar. I was working on something else and had too much red on my palette. One thing lead to another and there were a few things I wanted to try. Nothing amazing but he'll work just fine on the Frostgrave table or as a Dragonlance NPC.

  44. If you recall, I painted a village using the grisaille or slap chop method. If you were an astute observer (or you read my post) you may recall I said I had held one mini back which I was going to paint in the "normal" base coat, wash, highlight method. Here is it. I also included one of the grisaille minis to make a side by side comparison. I apologize for the lighting. I just moved and haven't found the ideal spot to take photos yet. I should probably invest in a light box. I've been painting for 12 years so I would have earned my value back on the box multiple times over by now.

  45. Hello all you Reaper Acolytes! So tonight going a little demonic, just finished painting these three Demon Women, sculpted by Dennis Mize. I'm not so sure how good the photos actually are, they end up being a lot smaller on detail because they've got those big, tall wings. I'm also kind of wondering about their faces. With my thought of "demon women", I thought they'd be a little more natural, not tons of makeup, so I didn't put in any eye shadow or even eyebrows. I also did eyes without pupils. I wanted to do some different colors, so the red one has yellow eyes, the white one green eyes, and the purple one has light blue eyes. I'm. not so well though these translate visually, and I'm vaguely considering painting them again, but not so sure because once I finish something I'm usually moving on to the next project already. So we'll see. The white lady's eyes seemingly were a bit more pale than I wanted for example, and the red one's eyes seem too flat. The purple one's eyes in the photos actually look to me more white than blue. So maybe I'll update. who knows.... As always, apart from thinking of how the eyes turned out, the biggest issue was choosing colors. I knew the skin colors I wanted, but the clothes were another story all together. Eventually had to choose some color, and I knew I wanted the lava-ey bases, so hopefully they all turned out okay. So anyhoos, enjoy!

  47. (for previous incarnations, see Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3) So the Demon that was pulled out of the box to go up against this Angel was Virina, who will definitely not be making an appearance in this post. To make matters worse, last month was Unpostable Succubus Month, as the figure I pulled out of Stoneskull to paint up was Eilluvasheth. Needless to say, Virina is just out of sight to the right and our Angel is doing her darndest here to shield the youngun from seeing inappropriate things. I thought I'd go for a more standard angelic representation, concentrating on shades of blue. I'm happy with the gradient on the wings, but the robes turned out a little chalky. Whoah - weird effects on that ring wing there. Sort of fits the model though. Little bit of static grass sticking to the robes as well. So that's the last of my angels lurking in my Bones Boxes, but I still have a lot of demons to paint. Why don't we go 2nd Edition for the next series - Blood Wars (Demons vs Devils).

Anyhoos, he may or may not resemble some great square jawed barbarian, only you and Crom know for sure: He's got a crazy, exaggerated helmet, but I'm guessing it's ceremonial? Or who knows, maybe he uses it when he's samba dancing.....
