  1. 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.

  2. 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 🙂

  3. Here is the Overgourd from Bones 5. He is super fun to paint! I am using him in my D&D game tomorrow! His sidekick is a 3d printed pumpkin cyclops.

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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. If you're in the market for a new t

  7. 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.

  8. Satheras craved more power! He spent hours, sometimes days submerging into fel magic.... until the ground started burning beside his feet.... That is all for my "rich" lore 🙂 Now on the serious note. I kind of feel I tried to bite too much with this figure. My first ever attempt at OSL. I thought I can redo this much better, but I try to stick to the philosophy of not redoing, but moving forward - this way I have things to refer back to in the future. The ground burning effect and the overall style and color palette were inspired by World of Warcraft cinematics: https://

  10. I wanted to try something easy for OSL, so I gave the Bones Death Shroud a shot. The idea was to create a night scene and have the “face” be a glowing bluish-white orb. Here is what I came out with (1st photo). I kept the colors simple to make it fairly quick to paint. After looking through various photos of OSL jobs (to be inspired by much more talented painters 😁), I noticed a trend: they’re almost all photographed against a dark background. From what I could tell, using a dark background, controlling the lighting, and adjusting the contrast so that the painted lighting source is

  12. Wasn't totally happy with how this came out. I wanted a reptilian version of a tiger pattern for stalking in the jungle. Colour scheme worked I think and overall it's a great model but it has some issues I struggled with. It's not symmetrical, the ridges and scales on each side are in different places and don't align making the patterning problematic. That coupled with the fact that some of the larger scales fade out and a lot of the smaller scales are almost indistinct took some of the fun out if it. Normally I enjoy doing scales and applying washes and dry rushing as well as pic

  17. Back after a long-ish hiatus. I had to take a break from painting earlier this year because of some eye issues. No that I can see right again, I wanted to take a simple-ish mini to completion. I used the RCL limited palette theme for July. While the paint job on these maggots can be better, it's gratifying to be back to doing something I enjoy immensely.

  18. Another zen of Bones…i.e. not a lot of effort and didn’t remove all the mold lines, but it is good enough to play with. The colors are a tad washed out using the Reaper portable light box. I thinkI am going to spray paint the inside black to quit messing with the exposure on my iPad. Anyways, here he is. C&C welcome. Cheers-Mike

  19. Here are two very different pieces that happened to come on the same week. Krug, Hill giant chieftain. I borrowed my friends version of this mini about six months ago to use in my campaign. I called him "King Krud" and the players had to negotiate with him for passage through his territory. They made it through just a few horses and some gold short. Negotiating with a hungry hill giant is not an easy task. The players and I liked "King Crud" so much that I had to buy my own and I will be making him a reoccuring monster. I tried a few new things with this guy. I have been

  20. Interesting day at work today. Thought I'd share some pictures of it. There were nice wetlands. And crappy degraded wetlands. There were tiny lakes. And there were great lakes (that thin line of turquoise between sand and sky). And, oddly enough, there were some neat sand sculptures. My favorite, Calvin and Hobbes hugging it out. Cheers y'all.

  22. Hi all, I'm back from a little vacation. We went to the city of Emmen for a few days, visited the Zoo, hiked in nature, visited a historical village and had a good time. Emmen is located in the province of Drenthe. Famous for it's Hunebeds ( Burial Mounds from ancient times) the one I took pics of is a so called longgrave.

  24. Kemet: Blood and Sand is a reworking/second version of the popular game Kemet. Set in Ancient Egypt, you gain powerful abilities and monsters by building pyramids of various colors. Emerald/Green is a completely new color to this version and adds new mechanics and a bit more of a sinister feel. It brings in the ability to sacrifice your troops for enhanced powers, and summoning gods to the table that behave similar to, but slightly different from, creatures. In addition, if you want a more Lovecraftian feel, you can replace the two core gods with Lovecraftian gods/monsters that are mechani

I swapped the top of its club with that of the 77455, Ogre Smasher. I also added a skull at his waist belt on the left side. As always I used Reaper MSP paint. 77455, Ogre Smasher and 77454, Ogre Clubber

  27. So I have been struggling with this guy since I got him. I'm normally really good with big miniatures and love painting them This guy has seen probably 3 different paint schemes The problem is that his details are very 'large'. What I mean by this is that his feathers are huge, the detail on them is huge, there is a LOT of empty plastic for paint to rub off of. I was wasting a lot of paint and it took so many coats to cover one area I first started painting minis with craft paint from hobby lobby. I decided to go back to my roots with this guy. here is the

  29. This is the front half of a two-part ruin from Printable Scenery, printed on my Ender 3. It's scaled for use with 28mm figures. I had originally intended it as a vehicle for using my new static grass applicator, but that turned out to be such a useless piece of junk that I reverted to my old favourite, foam flock. There is a bit of static grass on there, but it was applied via the old sprinkle-and-blow method, rather than via this new-fangled static electrickery.

  30. Hello all you Reaperhavians! So Tom Meier, when he was still running his own company, did a range of figures called Sparkle and Savage. His daughter inspired him to sculpt some figures (armed fairy ballerinas with unicorn mounts) and his son inspired him to sculpt other ones, like this one. Once you actually see the figure you'll see where the name comes from. a nice combination of the classics!

  31. It's here! Just brought in the five boxes UPS dropped off. They didn't even beat the boxes too bad...I guess it's too hot to work up a proper session of punishment. I had some help from my daughter with unpacking and arranging the loot. Is it just me, or does she looks suspiciously happy to be so close to my toys? I have a sinking feeling that a good portion of my new mermaids and dragons will mysteriously begin to disappear... I can't say that I'm excited to begin the inventory process. Some of the dragons look smaller than I had hoped, but they should still work. Also none of the 10 Core Set

  32. I've only scratch-built a few minis. A trio of snake swarms I made a few years ago - as simple as you can get. And this cute little octopus I whipped up with some greenstuff leftover after some conversion work. So far my sculpting skills are limited to noodles and blobs. But you have to start somewhere!

  33. I’ve done extensive conversions, the one I’m most proud of is this one: It was a GW sculpt that I fixed the face on, added wings, the right arm, and bird feet. The only things I’ve sculpted have been little things, like flowers or pots of gold (for a leprechaun). I think the Line between making and assembling is subjective and depends on the figure and the crafter.

  35. Aaaaahhhhhhhbhhhhhhhhh. Inventory. Everything arrived. Wasn't unduly surprised by anything expected to love--the terrain was the name ggest attraction for me, and it looks as great as expected--but the biggest surprise were the dragonfolk. The detail on them looks fantastic. Bones Black is really doing it to it. And... the ship. Oh my gosh. Even knowing, kinda, I really didn't know. It's so amazing. Dry-fitted the big parts and staged a little just to see. If I actually get it painted, and ever actually host a game again, it's actually gonna be so much fun. Reconsiderin

  36. I think it's in clear bonesium. Yes, clear. What's also cool is that the base is hollow, so electronics could easily be added. I'm hesitant to paint mine, as the material is exceptionally clear and crystal like as it is, and almost looks like quartz crystal straight out of the packaging.

  37. I guess it depends on where you draw the lines. I have an absurdly large collection of commercial molds for various sorts of toy soldiers. In fact, 15 more arrived in a package just yesterday, including this one: It makes an 18th century grenadier drummer, a marching grenadier, and an officer with a spontoon, which you are apparently supposed to cast onto a wire and then attqch to his hand. He’s shown here with a Prince August figure in process, plucked from my painting queue, since I took the picture yesterday to show the rest of the team that this matched our ex

  38. My process was as follows: 1) Trim small vine that touches the ground on the double vine. Mine was too long and didn’t allow to stand up straight. 2) prime all pieces brown. 3) dry brush base lighter brown, set aside 4) spray vines dark green, 90%coverage 5) spray vines a lighter green from the top. 6) paint thorns with an ivory 7) Spot wash thorns with a brown 8: add brown and green washes to vines here or there. overall pretty quick and I like the results. The thorns took the longest. good luck!

  41. Started converting my bones v robot kobolds. The idea was to arm them with scifi weapons to use them as a little starship boarding party. The plan is to do a total of 9 when ever they hit retail, all with different weapons. So far axe guy has a plasma gun and a samurai banner. Then there's rocket launcher kobold Knife kobold has a flame thrower.

  45. I had some time over the weekend and decided I wanted to free up as much space as possible on my shelves for the incoming kickstarter shipment arriving soon. I decided the largest amount of space I could free up in the shortest amount of time would be to give Mossbeard and the Tree of Despair quick paint jobs. They're definitely not fancy and I may go back at some point and add flocking and what have you to these. But for now they're done enough to make it onto the table. The Tree of Despair was actually started last year and then forgotten about. But Mossbeard was, start to finish, completed
