  1. Hello All, Here is a 77118 Reaper Dark Heaven Bones "Tiviel, Hellborn Rogue" I completed recently. I did add the ponytail to this miniature. The ponytail is from a Chaos Space Marine helmet. Thank you for looking.

  3. My D&D party will be attending a wedding between two noble houses. It would be a shame if one of the uncles got drunk and started spilling family secrets - casting confusion spells and Eldritch blasting the groom. Lord Twiller, House Vernon (Red wolf) "I will be your huckleberry."

  4. Hey everyone! ❤️ Just wanted to drop by and give a bit of an update on some stuff. There will not be a Reaper Live this week > We will do an episode next week as a memorial to Ed. I have created a section here for anyone that wishes to leave a story or a memory of Ed if you wish. Many of the Reaper family have been reading your messages on all social media, and the condolences are very much appreciated in this time. We look forward to talking to you all next week during ReaperLive as we tell stories, and remember our fearless leader.

  8. The Old Ways linger in rural parts. The harvest is, after all, too important to leave up to chance. The land will bring forth in plenty, but the fields must have blood. This is the ancient compact. The ground must be propitiated. Satiated. It is well known. The community is bound tighter together by the ritual, even if they don't care to talk about it. More angles of the vessel for HE WHO WALKS BEHIND THE ROWS: ] *** A great sculpt from Crooked Dice. Brigit the May Queen with the sickle and Mister Mangel the scarecrow are also from there. Reaper's Headless Footman (04031) is acting as the Master of Ceremonies. While we think of this type of agricultural folk horror as being from the Old World, as in Christopher Lee's "The Wicker Man" and Ramsey Campbell's "Ancient Images," it fits in pretty well with the American Cornlands, too. This intersection of trackless fields, nourishment, and old-time religion is one of Stephen King's obsessions (see Children of the Corn, In The Tall Grass, Secret Window, et al.). I could easily transplant this big guy to the borders of the Weird West and have it fit in just fine.

  10. 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!

  12. Finally finished him, had primed him way back when with the rest of the reapercon minis, but I just kept on stumbling on him and couldn't figure out how I wanted him mainly his clothing and armor.

  13. Well there's something that put me in a good mood this morning. 😄 One of my old gaming buddies from way back managed to reach me through email. We haven't seen each other since pre-COVID, particularly ever since my mother moved to another town, I haven't had any real occasion to go back. But my old group is planning a gathering during the holidays, I'll have plenty of free time and the driving distance isn't unreasonable. So I certainly do want to be there to see everyone. 🎅 I'm talking about guys I gamed with from the mid-90s up until 2010 when I moved away, and the host is a childhood friend I've known for over 40 years. So yeah, I'm excited.

  14. She was the last of the 3d prints that I had primed. I not sure if I'm liking these 3d prints because of their size (32mm) or what but I did enjoy painting them.

  16. Not a really fair fight but these were the first out of the bag. First up is the Ape Demon. Some weird proportions on this one (and what appears to be an oddly placed ear) but that fits with the game description. Next up are these disgusting little flesh sacks. A really nice sculpt on these guys, particularly for old school bones. Pity about the mould lines which become particularly apparent once they're painted and photographed

  17. Another adventure in weathering wood. I took some inspiration from Mediterranean fishing boats for the colour scheme and the evil eye motif. Lots of detail in this (including the shark bit on one of the oars) and I love the extras you get to scatter around it. Don't mind the groaning lump wrapped up in sail cloth. Tricky to photograph all in one go though.

  20. (For previous iterations, see Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6 and Part 7) Lets start with Flint, the Blue Heeler Ranger. Not much to pay on this one, however it does bear a striking resemblance to a certain animated children's character currently taking the world by storm. Maybe Flint is who Bluey will grow up into . . . (Sorry - a bit blurry on that face. It's hard to tell with these tiny minis) Next up is Denira. The box says "Persian" sorcerer, however the lack of a tail is making me lean more to a manx (unless Denira gave up her tail to that octopoid patron she has festooning her gear). Only a couple of cats to go . . .

  25. 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.

  26. This month's draw out of the Stoneskull box. I like to think of this guy being a misunderstood local bogeyman who lurks on the outskirts of some dusty backwater town. I thought an armadillo paint scheme would be fairly straightforward, however when I looked at some reference pictures, their patterning is a little more complex, with dark colouration patch on the back slowly grading into a light shade. I think I got the armoured part ok, not quite as happy with the 'illo part (obscure Goodies reference there for those who can remember it).

  29. People not having the expectation that you will always be available via e-communication 24/7. We had one phone per house, no answering machine. Sometimes you'd call and get someone, sometimes the line was busy, sometimes no one would pick up. All of these options were fine and there were no expectations of availability.

  32. Planned to go to the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at the State Capital in Carson City. Temps were supposed to be in high 20s so we were appropriately dressed and I had a heavy wool blanket for Cathy to wrap up in sitting in her wheelchair. Got there about 40 minutes early and situated in what should have been a good place for /Cathy to see the show, right behind a low rock monument so nobody could stand in front of her. Between the Cell Phone Addicts with the spotlights on their cameras wrecking everybody else's night vision and the morons putting their 3 year olds on their shoulders while standing in the fourth row it became a "just not worth it" situation so we called it and went to dinner at The Nugget Casino right up the street. The restaurant prepares good solid food and we both had Fish & Chips. Just before we finished up the people who had stayed for the entire ceremony started coming in. Finished up, with the usual interruptions due to my seasonal attire and tried to pay our bill. The Point Of Sale system decided it was time to emulate the other acronym using those three letters and it took about 15 minutes for their IT Guy [it's a Casino, they've got staff on duty 24-7 to deal with computer problems] to figure out the system required a reboot and perform the necessary button pushing. The Restaurant Manager requested "don't ignore me at Christmas" and I remarked it was the IT guy who had to worry about his office being filled with coal. Tomorrow begins "Santa Train" at the Railroad Museum and I will be On Duty as "The Man Of The Season" all day with the "other Santa" taking notes and working up his routine for Sunday and the following Saturdays until Christmas. I'm on for Sunday's. Everybody on the train gets a candy cane from Santa so I will be promoting business for the local Dentist's all day. Last scheduled train is at 3:00 PM but the policy is nobody gets left at the station so we will probably be doing one or two extra trains. People get a very puzzled look when they ask me "Are You Santa?" and my reply is "Come see me at the Railroad Museum starting tomorrow." Time to prepare a sack lunch and then hit the bed for a few hours shuteye before "show time". GEM AKA Nicholas Borealis

  35. My hair. Really good cartoons. All my original trilogy Star Wars toys and my comic book collection, which would be worth a lot of money these days. Inexpensive fast food - it was supposed to be the cheap and fast alternative to sit-down dining, but it hasn't been cheap nor fast for over a decade... Free time where I don't have to feel guilty because there's something more productive I could be doing. Well, I don't have the time to draw something new, but this is my tattoo that I got on the first anniversary of my mother's death years ago... Technically, I didn't draw it freehand since it was done on my puter with Corel Photopaint 8, but I sketched in the black lines and shading over a B&W photograph I took of my own hands holding a paper heart and then drew in the crown and the cuffs on the wrists myself.... Mathair is the Irish word for "Mother".

  36. Isn’t server 2008 out of MS support end of the year as well? (better be, the amount of my year wasted on supporting “server upgrade projects “…) Sounds like the poor thing should be taken out back and put out of its misery. I got to go out into the real world and actually interact with people today. First time since I left the hospital. Made out just fine with the cane, so I’m pretty much done with the walker. Got to see my massage therapist, who did some work on my legs, which have been causing me some grief since the surgery (expected, a lot of moving not quite the same makes things unhappy ). And we stopped by the FLGS, so I got to chat with a couple of the guys there. And my wife both got me a dice advent calendar AND went down and picked up Korean food for lunch! A pretty good day.

  39. Well….you guys got me doing some digging. Short story…..I am an idiot. Searched through my email and saw a shipping notice from 11/12/2020. Dug through my junk room and found the Altar Quest. Apparently came when I got a few other more interesting Kickstarters and forgot about it. Btw..the minis look awesome in Altar Quest. I will have to look at it closer this weekend.

  40. Not the most profound quote, but one that struck the whole family as memorable the first time we saw the movie, and on every repeat showing on cable, is from The Mummy, Brendan Frasier version. "He's still...juicy."

  41. Clearing out my WIPs boxes with a trio of nasty trolls! I've done so many ogres over the past two or so years but no trolls yet (probably because I have fewer troll models, too) The first one is a Mage Knight plastic recast of a classic Ral Partha metal model. The next two are from Drako: Knights And Trolls. The first one is your regular old troll. My big regret is doing the string of the necklace in ebony flesh over troll hide. You can barely even see it in photographs (it fares somewhat better in person). And the other troll from Drako looks more ogre-ish, with strange rocky protrusions on his back. Decided to do those crysalline-like and give him a lighter skin color. Guess he's a rock troll.
