  1. Yep! It is the one I sculpted during RVE. Ron called me asking if it was still available, saying the he couldn't believe they were doing this. LOL. Pics: (Ignore the clear flight stand; that is just what I had; I don't know what reaper will use.) The Giant Lizard is mine as well, commissioned by Ron before Christmas. I had fun with that one (base is 50mm): So that's two of my 6 that have been revealed so far. Here's crossing my fingers that the rest make it too. I hope you like them. Andy

  2. Hi everybody. Since I recently joined the Reaper forum, I thought I might as well share one of my latest painted minis. The original model: https://www.reapermini.com/search/03506 I have chosen this mini to represent a wizard apprentice in an egyptian version of Frostgrave. Since she is 'only' an apprentice, I wanted her to look a little less important, which is why I cut off the tiara. Unfortunately the little baboon that was included hasn't been painted as I have no use for him... yet. Hope you like it. Have a nice day everybody!

  4. Visually overwhelming to paint, this isn't my sort of thing. Reminded me of all the eyes I had to paint with the faceless horror model. Still he is an intimidating beast on the table. Edit: I should have probably also pointed out that this is a transparent model for some reason, making it even more difficult to paint. In addition, it was like playing where's waldo with the stones. Every time I thought I had them all, I would eventually come across another.

  7. Hello All, Here is a recent work. "Male Revenant" 77301. I did change out the head. I removed the original head and replaced it with a skull. The skull was pinned in place. When I first saw the miniature, it made me think of the old Scooby Doo cartoon villains. So, I painted the skull to look like it is glowing a bit with glowing pinpoint eyes. Thank you for looking.

  11. Hello folks! I hope you're doing well. My latest painted mini : a golem of woes by Rocket Pig Games. I loved this mini as soon as I first saw it. I just HAD to paint it. It's a fun concept and the tormented faces were an absolute delight to paint. πŸ™‚

  14. I guess I was supposed to see snow on the base but I saw desert and I competed this dragon as a blue More importantly this is the first mini I have really started and finished since the new year. It has been a rough ride and this feels like a trend back to normal. So I hope you like him!

  16. Hello everybody on the penultimate day of the Reaper Bones 6 Kickstarter! So here's another figure I've been sitting on for a while, painted it I think already a couple years back but never posted or showed it off because he wasn't yet available. Well he was recently released over at Ral Partha Legacy, so it's time to show him off! Back in the eighties, if I recall correctly, Tom Meier sculpted a whole bunch of troglodytes, I think with the Ral Partha/Citadel collaboration back then, and when Ral Partha Legacy had one of their Kickstarters, they re-released those older figures. A little bit later Tom Meier sculpted this little fellow up, a sorcerer/priest/leader for whatever group of trogs you might end up gathering. He has a pretty long base so he got stuck on one of their mount bases. and kind of funny, now that I start thinking about it, I've been using the only other Partha Troglodyte that I've painted as my avatar: I might want to change that, I don't feel like an ugly lizard.......

  19. My brother and I are signed up to run Burrows and Badgers at Gen Con this summer. I have three war bands from the last time we did this (2019?), and some spares, but have been wanting to change things up a bit. So, taking a break from vintage Ral Partha, I decided to finish off this Otter Mercenary, who has been languishing partially painted for a while. I might end up touching up the contrast before basing him.

  22. I started this little side project in my Children of the Night WIP. Models are from Freebooter Miniatures ( Werne Klocke) the Crypt is from Minimonsters, Gravestone is from Greenstuffworld, the stairs are made of foam. WIP: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79298-children-of-the-night-by-glitterwolf/ ********************* Ahhh Love... When you find the right person it's forever. And by that I mean FOREVER!!!! Here's Mr. Mort, He's found his eternal love, and every year on the day they met he brings her a rose and ask her to be his girl once again. Her beautiful blond hair, her lovely smile, how could he resist? And every year, she plays along, holding him off for a short while and then agrees to be his girl, forever and ever. *********************

  23. and it's day one after the grand Kickstarter Bones 6 and time to pull my eyeballs away from the ever changing Kickstarter screen and back to my version of reality. So here's one more figure I've got, painted a couple years back, but once again, as it hadn't been released, never showed him off. Well, he's out and about in the public, so here he is a very small Dwarves Necromancer, sculpted by Dave Summers three or four years back: I really like how his face is half a skull and half a living dwarf. It I would have been thinking years back, I would have maybe painted a side of his beard a lot lighter, but oh well, not going to worry about it now. Anyhoos, enjoy!

  25. Good evening to all of you in the final week of the Kickstarter! Not at all related to Kickstartes, but once a part of one, this next miniature is a female Halfling Bard, sculpted by Mike Evans at Stonehaven Miniatures. This mini in itself was part of his Halfling Kickstarter, which created a hole bunch of different hobbits, guys and gals, with different professions and adventuring classes. and a close up of her face: Once again, no idea on the colors I wanted to use, so I basically just went for the skin, face and hair, and then had to start working on her attire, inside out, shirt first, later pants and then hat and armor. Ended up with this yellow, blue and pink pallet, which hopefully doesn't clash too much! Anyhoos, enjoy and put in your Kickstarter bids!

  26. First diorama I've done since I've been I was ill this winter. Although I have been doing a lot of reminiscing and wishing, which is what this piece is about. I have at least one of all the Burrows & Badgers range from Oathsworn and one of the parts I like is thst ao many or their miniatures can be used for non-dnd or domestic scenes. I also finally found a use for the stable piece from the Reaper nativity scene. I built an actual stable for that sp I had thst bit left over and it worked pretty well here. I could explain it but I'm hoping the piece speaks for itself. Hope you.all enjoy I find tje affect the best when staring through the portal...

  29. Hello and good evening all you Reaper Maniacs! So here's a few miniatures I've been meaning to paint but just haven't gotten around to them, you know, too many minis, not enough time. But I did finally get around to these, which are pretty fun, Squidmen with Goo Guns, sculpted by Tom Meier when he had the company Thunderbolt Mountains. These are miniatures that his son had designed. and here they are as the actual group/blister pack they come in: Anyhoos, quite enjoyable and reasonably simple to paint, hope you guys and gals all enjoy!

  31. A few years ago I took Queen Shanon Stormhand (Human Druid) from a BOGW, but her staff was broken and without the skull that should be on it. I replaced that with a Deer Skull from my bits box. She's now the Queen of Bears for my Horde of the North Project. WIP HERE: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79398-horde-of-the-north-glitterwolf-paints-barbarians-and-mammoths/ Her bears are the smaller one from BONES Familiar Pack, The BONES BLACK CAVE BEAR and a huge plastic toy bear I found in a Tiger Store. I present Queen Shannon, Queen of Bears. ********************** Queen Shannon had heard the calling, for the first time in centuries the tribes would unite and march South to plunder the lands of the Imperials. Her tribe was known as the Bear Tribe, there was a strong bond between her people and the bears of the North and they would gladly march to War with her. As if that wasn't enough, the Queen was the only one with the power to summon the Allfather of Bears. Who will stand in her way now??? **********************

  34. First of all, I have lots of people to thank for inspiration. This particular piece, the dilapidated fort, was directly taken from a project at Onyx Workshop. My other major inspiration is Le Golem Qui Reve, a French fellow who has been doing Sandgrave for a number of years. Check out his amazing blog. (If you're going to cite sources, it's not plagerism, right?) This one was done using Hirst Arts Egyptian moulds: Floor tiles, sandblasted pyramid and regular walls. My go-to colours are P3 Rucksack Tan for the base, washed with GW Seraphim sepia. The bricks are done using a variety of tan and off whites available at the dollar store. The whole thing is drybrushed a cream, then flocked. I use regular plaster of paris and wood glue, with Aileen's tacky craft glue for the flocking. I use so much of the sand base I had it custom mixed at the hardware as a gallon. House paint stinks for minis, but it covers sand really well. The sand is locally collected from my yard. To create the chipped look, I used a dull hobby knife blade and hacked at the wall. I'm very happy with how this looks and it has become my new way of making convincing ruins. The ladder is a leftover piece from an MDF kitbash. Each of the straight blocks is 1" long. The base is a piece from Charlie Foxtrot out of the UK. He's an amazing guy to purchase from. I believe it is from bases set one. I will admit I screwed up when I made it, it should be 5 inches long to accomodate a full unit for Wargods, which brings us to... The minis are Crocodile Games. They have shields, and as part of my spring cleaning of the paint desk, they will soon receive them. The metal (or bones) mummy warriors complement this range very nicely, being comparable in size and asthetic. If you aren't fussy about duplicates, choose the bones version. The metal version seems to me like it could use a new mould --some of the detail seems shallow.

  35. This was a nightmarish project that I shelved for years after I had first put her together. Being metal I didn't want to try and attach the wings after it was painted so assembled all the parts of the dragon together. I wanted a blue dragon and first went with Prussian Blue, huge mistake as it looked awful and trying to paint that heavy thing in hand was a... ...so it got shelved until now. It's my second dragon of any size (painted baby dragon as PC followers). but basically really my first as the other dragon I painted was the Asgard Dragon (twice the size of this weighting over 2 lbs. of lead) in the 80's done in metalic's where I hadn't any idea what I was doing, later striped and sold the model.

  37. Miskatonic University, 1924. Dr. August Bentworth, professor of Medieval Studies, is strolling to his office on the gravel path behind the university's library, his footsteps making a reassuring crunching sound in the twilight. He has a strange faraway look in his eyes as he clutches an ancient leather bound tome under his arm, the leather looking strangely organic. Too organic, one might say... This mini was loads of fun to paint and I tried a couple new things as well. I did a search for tweed suit to see patterns and this one was the first one to come up. I decided to give the freehand a shot; that took me some time! I had to split that over two days, jacket first then the pants (holy cow I got shaky doing that!). Ran into one issue doing the right pant leg, I wound up doing a spiral rather than circles! πŸ˜„ Turned out OK though, can't really tell unless you look very closely. Next new item was doing age spots on his head and hands. Pretty pleased with this one, good freehand exercise. As always love to see what everyone thinks and CC is always welcome!

  38. Well spotted. The lizard is a cross between a gorgonopsid (head and upright neck), a Komodo dragon (body plan and feet), a gila monster (bead scales), and a male iguana (dewlap), with a bit of my fancy thrown in to tie it all together. I did design the dewlap such that (if China keeps the parts the same as I did) you can easily leave it off (or heat it and rip it off if they super glue it in place), fill the slot with GS, then use 80 grit sand paper to texture the GS to match the surrounding. Viola, no dewlap. I'll likely make a tutorial of this in the sculpting section once the KS fulfills for those who don't like that feature. (hmmm...that would also be a good addition to one of my beginning sculpting classes at RCon.)

  40. I tried to make the tentacles a little "stonier" with some texture, although it made the dry brushing sort of problematic. A few action shots at the end. Might as well stand and fight if you're just going to take opportunity attacks until you're 50' away.. I'd welcome comments and criticism as well. My skin isn't quite as tough as this guy, but I'm at least AC 12... best, -t

  41. I'm a little surprised at the harshness of criticisms in the run downs. I get that not everything is for everybody (some of this isn't for me), but they're trying to do something for everybody. they unlocked a ton of extra stuf that we didn't earn, They adjusted on the fly, listened to comments. Those that say 3d printing is a direct option instead of these (whether you wanted hands sculpted models instead of digital models, or just for variety or price) please be acutely aware that 3d printing is not cheaper nor easier than mass production. It needs a lot more work after the print to sand/fill/clean than injected/cast parts, is much more fragile, You need galons of IPA, a wash and cure station, ways to clean/decant it, possibly a chemical smoothing (like an acetone vapor bath) or putty fill and sand to get rid of lines. Its messy, time intensive, non recyclable. Even if i owned a resin printer, i would still be interested in professionally produced minis. I'm happy to part of a mostly positive community. I wish I could have been unrelentingly excited for this kickstarter without feeling bad that it wasn't a big as past ones that i've missed.(though my pocketbook probably appreciates it being smaller πŸ˜‰ ).
