  1. I haven't painted a mini for a few years, got caught up moving interstate and starting a new job. (I am a tattoo artist, woo!) But finally sorting through my minis and paints and taking some time to tinker. I went with a colour scheme inspired by the old Hanna Barbera character, 'Wildfire.'

  2. Hello everyone, I'm currently working on an Ogre gang and completed the painting on this model last night. This is a 77455, Ogre Smasher sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77454, Ogre Clubber. I also added three more skulls at his waist belt. it was all painted with Reaper MSP paint. I will complete the base later since I may add more elements to it.

  3. I started this to be the BBEG for Dragon's Demand. I really enjoyed painting it. This is my first full dragon miniature painted. I spent a lot of time on it, and I'm pleased with the outcome. I hope you like it. This was my first time using Birch seed pod debris as leaves, and I think they look good. Here is the link to the WIP: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/92764-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-11-shadow-dragon/&tab=comments#comment-1965291 C&C welcome.

  4. Hello everyone, now that the event is over, here are some more pictures of my entry in the 17th Quarterly contest. A big thanks to everybody that voted for me. This is a 77752, Female Minotaur sculpted by Jason Wiebe. It was a fun model to work on and I challenged myself painting object source lighting (OSL) on it. I made the fire with pieces of popsicle stick and Liquitex heavy gel medium.

  5. I received my pledge and am super excited to get going on these figures. First up, spell effects?! Pretty lame selection for first thing, but they have good utility and we’re really in the top 5, they just finished first. 1) wall of thorns: spray painted these brown, then dark green and light green from the top. Picked out the thorns with ivory then added some brown and green washes. 2) Stone wall sections. These got the ‘prime black and dry brush grays’ treatment. Had a bit of fun with the one section.

  6. Just a little while ago, CMON delivered their Marvel United game filled with wonderful super hero chibi minis. I’ve started painting them using a sort of comic book style (a lot of black outlines and some really neat stuff). Some of the minis take to this a little more than others, and I plan to keep experimenting with the style and find new ways to push the comic book style further. I’ll have a lot more to show off as I work my way through the whole set, but here is something to start with. Somehow, I chose mostly less saturated characters for this first group (which gives them a slightl

  7. Greetings all, This is Ed Pugh making this post~ This weekend, I sat down and read several weeks’ worth of posts. (I would like to call out Andrew Miller and his post made to the tune of John Lennon’s song “Imagine”. Fun stuff!) I would like to thank ALL of the people making comments here. I especially focused on comments made by upset backers. Your comments are helpful, and this is how we learn. We might not be able to fix everyone’s problems at this time, but they will all be addressed in future planning discussions. Now down to business. I’m making this post becaus

  8. I entered my first ever painting competition! I came last, or fourth as i would like to call it. But hey I still placed and I really enjoyed the experience, so I'm happy. And at last we get to see what these villagers looked so freaked out about. 😃

Hench-Women If you got this set, don't make the mistake I did and assume the beg on the cart's wheel is leftover sprue: it's actually so it can slot into the base.

  10. Sorry for the delay, it took me a while to watch the stream a second time (I'm generally paying more attention to chat than I am to the show) and type all of this out. I think I caught everything kickstarter relevant, I apologize if I missed anything. So as has already been posted, tonight on Reaper Live, Ed announced that US fulfillment has been paused temporarily while they correct deficiencies found by the fire marshal - blocked fire lanes, too many extension cords, etc. Ed said that they are HOPING to start back up by Monday, but PROBABLY Tuesday or Wednesday. They had origina

  11. Been tinkering with painting again, worked on my Eilluvasheth the Succubus Queen and painted her up in the colour scheme of Alexstasza from World of Warcraft. Despite boiling her and quick-cooling her she still had a bit of a lean but she was fun to paint. Here are the links to the front views since she has nipple pasties: https://imgur.com/kYWuppU https://imgur.com/vRIuxcG I made a small tutorial on my Instagram about how to make the flower petals I used on the base: https://www.instagram.com/cassusadventures

  12. I found myself with some rare free time this week, and decided to spend it hunched over my hobby desk! After several days working on a new scenic backdrop, an old cemetery (sorry no build journal this time), I found myself in need of a suitable first miniature to show case on my build, 'Zara, Arko Jumper' (SKU30016) was just the ticket! My second Bones USA miniature, and once again it was a joy to paint. Overall I am pretty pleased.

  14. Reaper's Jacob Knochenguard and a piece of Reaper's Graveyard Fence. Part of my Children of the Night Project. WIP: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79298-children-of-the-night-by-glitterwolf/page/19/#comments ***************** When Jakob heard of the trouble his old friend Ernst Holtz was in he didn't hesitate, he travelled to the Barony as fast as he could. Unlike Ernst, Jakob didn't want anything to do with those modern gizmos, that steamwagon Ernst was so fond of? Jakob was convinced it would explode one day.

  15. This was my second time painting this mini, as I felt that the sculpt deserved better than the shoddy job I gave it a few years back. The nmm attempt on his vambrace definitely leaves something to be desired as wet blending still drives me to the brink of insanity. C&C would be awesome 🙂

I may not do much more painting for a while though. WIP starts here. A few posts surrounding show some of my Bones 5 dry fits and will have other Bones 5 stuff in that thread ...whenever I can paint again. Spider: Base:

  18. Presenting Lysette, a mage from the Bones USA line by Reaper. Started on this one back in January, but got stuck on her dress so she spent a while in the Cupboard Of Unfinished Things. Unfortunately, my camera doesn't like her sky blue hair and it's really blown the colours out, she looks a tad better in hand. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

  19. I've previously posted Hasslefree's Velma analogue 'Louise' as a Miskatonic library assistant. High time I got the rest of the gang together. A cheap toy VW bus is key to this whole thing. The flowers and turquoise are my addition. We have Not-Fred-for-Legal-Reasons! (Barney, postapocalyptic version. No ascot, sadly, but a more dynamic sculpt.) Not-Daphne!

  23. ....and when the last crumbs of hope were lost, from the deeps of the elven forest, came a heroine! Alright, this happened to be an interesting project. I'm guessing Fiara lost a bunch of details when going from metal to plastic bones. At some point, I felt like there wasn't much to work with. I ended up free-handing some of the details. Also, blacklining seemed to help quiet a lot. I originally wanted to use metalics on the sword, but at the last moment decided for NMM. As always, all sorts of feedback is welcomed! 🙂 P.S. For the love of God, I could not take a good p

So "Ashlyn of the Red Rovers of Triboar," what's a ranger doing in these parts, the last thing we need is another lawman. the red cloak is a very bright red I'm afraid my camera wont capture with the shading etc, u can't tell. I know a red cape is flashy but she's is a Red Rover and they specifically ask me to send Ashlyn right over....hehe childhood memories.

  25. Finished up this up this morning. This represents the most success I've ever had with a pale blue, so that's a victory. A friend furnished me a graphic of a display from one of the Trek films, so that gave me something to put on her tablet. The Wife has always loved Star Trek, so I gave the model her coloration and did her uniform in blue (she's always favored the science officer types). The base was done with a Happy Seppuku texture stamp. This is a Bombshell Miniature, but I used all Reaper paints. The stars of the show are Sky Blue, Frosty Blue, Sapphire Blue, Warrior

  32. Hello all you Reaperoloques, anxiously waiting for your Kickstarter boxes to arrive at your doors! I got my notice and hopefully I'll be seeing a big, beautiful box of plastic joy this Wednesday! But in the meantime, just plugging away painting... So I just finished these two Thunderbolt Mountain minis, and if you recall last time, I took y last photos with my new iPhone. I considered doing this again with these two minis, but took photos with my camera and then with the iPhone, and the iPhone photos were too brash or stark, so I'm using the camera photos instead.

  33. Plenty to paint with the new stuff so started somewhere simple while sorting through the small horde of miniatures that thudded onto the doorstep. In reality the head hasn't turned out that good , thank you sunlight, but did look okay and I love the purples on the cloak. The armour isn't quite how I would have liked but tried drybrushing the whole thing rather than relying on a deep wash. Fun figure though 🙂 Also followed the advice of Rhonda and made colour charts. Really useful as I switch to Reaper paints from others.

  34. I have no idea what company this miniature is from, but it's arguably my personal best I've done to date. The rusted metal look was cribbed from the great Angel Giraldez and I modeled this guy after an English Longhorn bull, appearance wise. What do y'all think?

  35. Getting ready for my next game, the plot is the party are going to be sent off on a Heart of Darkness/Apocalypse now type quest so have been painting models in similar patterns and colours to give a sort of military cohesion. Due to 12 hr shifts sat in a security box I got to finish off a fetchling Thief using the Frostgrave Knights Sprue and some extra bits for my son's character. Also added photos of the others in the same colours to see if others think the theme is working.

  36. You got the first letter right. Her name's Amariel. If you're a truly Tolkien-obsessed geek you'll recognize it as Sindarin for Daughter of the Earth. Try not to feel too sorry for her...she's dreadfully spoiled. 🙂 Regarding the Table (yes, It refers to Itself with capital letters...and curses my dice rolls when I don't), It was crafted by Daniel Fisher from Hammered Game Tables. He does amazing work. The carved gates of Moria actually glow green in the dark. Each of the player stations has a scene from the trek through Moria woodburned into it.

  37. Presenting Sakana (Not sure if this is the regular or veteran version), a member of the Fisherman team from the, now defunct, game Guild Ball by Steamforged Games. This guy was one of those weird Guild Ball minis where I'm not quite sure what's going on with their outfit, I still can't figure out if he's wearing a roll-neck vest or just has a odd neck and, now looking at it in piccy form, I'm pretty sure the top half of his trousers aren't actually trousers. He still came out okay though. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

  39. I got a lot of terrain from this Kickstarter- my mini-spawn (age 7) likes playing with it. So I picked the two encounters that were compatible with the DDS ruined tower. in order for it to work as a single ruined structure, I stick to a single color pallet. the tower base for the huge black dragon also fits, so it is next on the list. normally I prime with brown liner ... but this is a lot of surface area. I tested two spray primers on one of the standing stones (from ghouls encounter) - the rustoleum is still tacky while the citadel chaos black worked g

  40. Some photos of the Dwarf Kings Crypt, and the Henchmen. The Dwarf King’s Crypt is a beautiful set, with tons of detail! I just wish the ghost had been done in clear, not blue; or in the color the Pirate Ghosts were done in for Bones 4. And the Henchmen are a delightful group of characters.

  41. Gem Dragon and Shadow Dragon. Shown with townsfolk for scale. Interestingly, the base of the Gem Dragon is hollow so those crafty folk can figure out how to electrify it. With the Shadow Dragon, the base is a free standing rock without any part of the dragon sculpted on it, nor any indents that I could see.

  42. My 8 year old son painted these shortly after his birthday last spring. I actually liked his colors and the pattern on the Carnotaurus. Mostly I was over joyed that he didn’t glob the paint on for once. A few weeks ago I decided to paint the eyes, teeth, claws, and base for him. Them a coat of sealer. I think they look great for the toy box. Here are my crappy before and after.

  43. Finished my first piece from Bones 5. She was a really good chance to practice getting those really smooth color transitions, particularly starting from a lighter color (here, Reaper's amethyst purple, highlighted with sorcerous mist and sorcerous mist mixed with linen white, shaded all the way to nightshade purple). She was fun for the same reasons that my science officer from a few weeks ago was fun. She looks like she belongs either on an 80's metal album cover or a panel van. I've got another piece that could use this color scheme, whenever I get around to her.

  48. I ordered a Frostgrave Knights Sprue and those arms and helmet just begged a go at Monty Python's Black Knight. Went for greys to highlight the cloth and blues for the leather boots and gloves to get a feel for him wearing different materials. My first time using almost all reaper paints so wanted to see how they worked, next time I'll add some washes, but really happy with them. (Traded my son 40 GW paints for 11 reaper and happy with the trade)
