  1. How long has it been since I started a show off thread???? Too long. I have missed everyone and hope to get back to at least a semi regular amount of posts. Figured I’d start with a Reaper mini. For the forum peeps that attended ReaperCon 2019 you may have seen my version of Derek’s beautiful sculpt O-Sayumi or affectionately named Akiko. I had a great time painting this lovely lady. Since I didn’t complete her until Thursday night of the con I didn’t get any photos until last week. Two years to take pics and post them up, not bad huh? I missed ReaperCon and all of you. I have been e

  3. So after a substantial break from painting I purchased a new toy….a resin 3D printer (as I don’t have enough unpainted minis). So far I have enjoyed printing some minis even though my favorite will always be pewter. My first choice to paint of the batch I printed to knock off the rust was this pretty lady Nihae. I printed her at 87.5% as Artisan Guild is too large to suit the rest of my collection. She is about the size of a standard reaper mini printed at this scale. I printed some ferns and quickly put her on a base so she is ready to hit the table sometime soon. C&am

  4. Another I base-coated at ReaperCon and then finished when I got home! Played with OSL from the crystal atop the staff. The crystal itself wasn’t the best part of the sculpt and as such, it’s not the best crystal I’ve ever painted.

  5. For the ReaperCon MSP Open this year, I painted the master copy of the White Drake I sculpted for Dark Sword (it will be released for sale in 2022). I decided to do him in glacial coloration inspired by a glacier I saw while on a cruise in AK. For the Sculpting story, click here. For the Painting WIP, click here. Oh, and I won a gold medal for him in the Open category. (Bear in mind that that is a 1" base)

  6. Hi folks, I painted up my Queen of Hell yesterday for the RCL "Textures" pop-up. She's a gorgeous model, really fun to paint. I gave NMM another try and am happy with the gold but not so much with the steel. However, more experience is still good. 🙂 I realised when looking up her SKU that I attached the left hand incorrectly- so it goes! Now to paint the King of Hell to match one of these days... thanks for looking. 🙂

  7. Having painted the set of Reaper kobolds, I wanted to try the pack of 6 goblins next. Some of the mold/flash lines were not nice (e.g. down the center of the face), but I did the best I could. That being said, I'm starting to get in a groove of painting 6 minis at a time (the amount that my portable paint kit can hold). I must say: I'm really enjoying painting potential D&D monsters as a way to practice various skills 😀 I've been working on speed/batch painting, and I think I found something that works to my satisfaction (without an airbrush). From what I can tell, this is the

  8. When I received this Bones 4 mini with my Kickstarter back in the day, he was headless. Reaper sent me a fresh one as they do. I had an extra beholder eyestalk from the Wizkids beholder, and decided to carve it into the head slot and make an aberration!! I’ll paint the normal one to match, and then he’ll be a nice surprise boss in a future dnd game.

  9. Fun little piece. I attempted to paint it in the style of Costa Rican coffee wagons. It was a real challenge, given the irregularities of the wheel surface. I wish it had a donkey, goat or ox to pull it. It will stand upright by itself on some surfaces, but I stuck a block under it to stabilize during photography.

  10. Undead King from Bones 5 Core Set. I gave him a backstory of going mad and believing the infestation of rats that brought plague to his ancient kingdom were loyal subjects rising up to kill the "traitors" that actually were just innocent civilians. He rummaged through the corpses of his former subjects and found the means to become a lich and raise a skeletal army to defend his "loyal" rat followers.

  11. This was my first of the Bones 5 to immediately grab my attention…as I stare up at Demogorgon on my desk… I was really feeling a Church if the Silver Flame vibe on her, since the silver arrow and bow are their sacred weapons. Hope you like her!! I actually finished her while sitting at ReaperCon.

  14. One of the first figures I pulled out of the Bones5 core set was this guy. Had fun doing him in non traditional colors. The flash made him look a little brighter than it really is.

  15. I made this piece of scenery for whenever I get around to playing some kind of zombie game. It's just foamboard, dowels and coffee stirrers. The image was downloaded, printed, stuck on, and then ruined with lots of washes and the blunt edge of an X-acto knife (Quatro was a soft drink sold in the UK in the 80s; I wanted a bit of a retro look). I added some random graffiti to the back. It was mainly painted with cheap craft paints. The junk on the base is by Reaper, TTCombat and Debris of War, as well as a couple of stones from my drive.

  16. This has been a WIP on my desk for far too long. I tried some things that didn't work, repainted her, got some advice, repainted her, didn't like the way it looked, repainted her... realized I just had to stop before I really ruined it.

  17. Finished these as part of my Rangers of Shadow Deep project, so aiming for table top standard. Mostly, just a few washes over a zenithal, and some dry brushing. And a lot of GSWs coagulated blood effect. This was fun! Already posted pictures in my RoSD-WIP-thread before varnishing. I think the varnish tied everything together nicely. Very happy with how they turned out. Enjoy, c&c welcome!

  18. Back on my PC I can upload the final shot of the mounted knight Lucardus von Kemet. Because he is a famous character in the world of The Dark Eye, I put a sign on his base to give his name clearly to everyone. As a leader of the Undead and user of dark powers I gave him a look similiar to his underlings. He is a desperate man who wields war in the name of his demonic mistress. Painting process is in the wip forum.

  19. AKA: Sophie's mom. This is a model that really needs to be made in metal. It's just awful in plastic. Anyway, she sat on my paint table a long time before inspiration broke through and I did the wings. The rest just took patience. Frontal view also available

  20. Hello there, here are pictures of Tungdill, a Wizkids Nolzur’s Marvelous 72630, Dwarf Male Paladin. It is the character of one of the players of our D&D group. I painted it with Reaper MSP paint and Citadel casandora yellow ink on the hammer head.

  21. Got this pair in my VIP bag when at ReaperCon. Got their base coats done while there and then finished them when I got home. I like the semi-demented look that they have; they could either be secret assassins or some backwoods cooks who just look a little ‘off’.

  22. This is the Bones version of the iconic character, painted in a rather quick and dirty fashion. There was a lot of metal and chain mail, which I did not spend time on, and a few details which I picked out. In retrospect I could have brightened up the armor some, but since she's likely to go on the table as a generic fighter I didn't feel the need to make her special.

  23. Goblin set from the last KS. My first project from sprue to table and let me tell you, I was not fond of those small keyholes. The bard was a ton of fun, eventually. And the wizard was pretty enjoyable to paint too.

  24. Here's a happy troll family from one of the expansions in the recent Bones kickstarter. I always thought you got more trolls by some sort of budding process. Or by careless adventurers forgetting to burn all of the chopped off troll bits which then just grow into new trolls. Either way, wasn't expecting eggs. Regardless, it's a super fun little troll group and you can just see the pride in mama's big stupid grin in the back there.

  25. Presenting the Frost Giant Heroine from Reaper. Not my best work, I'm still not great at getting all the mold-lines off these PVC minis, plus I was painting her to help work through some issues I was having so she's a bit on the rough and basic side. Was still a lot of fun to paint up though, I'll have to get the other one done now. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

  27. Last week I finished up a stand of medieval city militia using a 4-color limited Zorn palette. This turned out to be oddly calming, so I went ahead this week and prepared a second stand of 8 figures (mostly duplicate poses) from the same box of Strelets 1/72 scale plastics. I would ordinarily use 2 stands for something like a Dragon Rampant unit, so it’s nice to have them in matching pairs where possible. I started in on them Friday morning, and had them varnished by supper time on Saturday (when we headed out to a ballroom dance event). I f

  28. I have to confess when I pulled this guy out of the core set I thought it was a goblin. In particular, it reminded me of a certain space goblin that backwards talks in riddles he does, mmmn. So he's green.

  34. I've been slowly (very slowly) working my way through some of the larger non-humanoid figures in my collection. This one took me about a year to complete, mostly because of the wings. I haven't figured out how to do the translucent effect yet, but I'm getting closer.

  36. This was a Reapercon special a year or three ago, and part of my end of year paint binge for 2020. Despite that. it didn't get finished until July of this year. It's very small, would just fit on a round 1" base.

  39. Despite running on 4 hours sleep, I decided to get up in time to get pictures of the beautiful dawn light. Still shuffling, but I managed to do it without my sticks this time. Pity that I was exhausted afterwards but it's all about building myself back up right now. Had tea, toast and cake and am now recovering on the sofa underneath two of the cats. All in all, not the worst way to spend a Monday.

  40. My favourite turnip stories. My mom told me she always hated turnips. As a kid she had to finish eating her supper if she wanted to have ice cream for dessert. She threw a fit and refused to eat her turnips. So grandpa gave her the ice cream. On top of her turnips and made her sit there and eat all of it. A few years ago a distant relative of mine decided to grow a garden. He's about 35 years old and had never experienced the joy of turnips. So he planted a lot of them and they grew well. After eating a couple he realised they weren't to his taste. So he tries to give them away to

  42. This could be more exciting, but it's not. I chose this as a test piece before I tackle Dragons Don't Share II. Nice piece, it came together in a jiffy. I'm trying to copy the local limestone, and didn't quite get there with this, but it's a starting point.

  44. This morning I walked into the outer cellar and noticed that the door of a cabinet was slightly open. Oddly enough it was kinda stuck and I needed to apply some force to open the door. Well...if you store a can of polyurethane foam, make sure nothing presses against the button when you close the door of the cabinet... There was a large chunk of foam there.. Luckily it was easy to remove but it was kinda funny to find it like this.

  45. Here's a few of the 3d printed characters from the crowdfunded project by Kazrak Studio. They were done in resin, and have some very fine details. John H. Damon, who likes to read old books written in strange languages: Dr Weird Psychic, a student of the mystic arts who needs no introduction: Laura Craft, field archaeologist and explorer: And dear Dr Home, the brilliant surgeon with a lousy bedside manner: All are presented on bases from Secret Weapon.

  46. Apparently, I am still a little tired. I saw a headline for an article that has something to do with freezing hummus and the fact that it still tastes good afterwards. I misread the title as freezing HUMANS.

  47. This is a slightly converted piece from MOM Miniatures; I changed out the hand-axes for a freshly severed head, and a custom sword. I made the blade and crossguard; the handle was from some Reaper bits. I'm pretty pleased with this piece, especially considering how unstable my hands felt through a lot of it. There are a couple of things I might work a tad on, but I'm comfortable calling him finished. I'm really pleased with the pictures, they're definitely the best I've ever taken of a miniature! Thanks for looking!
