  1. I've never actually tried my hand at a truly black-skinned drow before, and this seemed like a good mini to try. It was a nice clean mini to paint. ~Muninn ~
  2. Just got my order! I feel like Bones minis have come a long way from the first castings. It feels like the subtle details are much more visible than they once were. I got Baba Yaga’s hut, but not my shipping crates, or Giant Raiders. Anyone know if they’re coming in a separate shipment?
  3. Exactly what I was thinking. I'm always game for a strong, well armored, female mini.
  4. Agreed. I'd like to see something akin to a the Diablo 3 Crusader, with a smaller shield.
  5. I'm guessing/hoping December will be an adventurer. They doubled up on monsters when they made October a Vampire. Jan: Rictus the Undying (Monster) Feb: Human Fighter (Adventurer) Mar: Bloodbite Goblins (Monster) Apr: Halfling Thief (Adventurer) May: Cairn Wraith (Monster) June: Elf Ranger (Adventurer) July: Orc Warrior (Monster) Aug: Human Wizard (Adventurer) Sep: Ratpelt Kobolds (Monster) Oct: Vampiress (Monster) Nov: Dwarf Fighter (Adventurer) If they're doing 6 & 6, that'd leave us short one adventurer going into the last month. I'd a
  6. For the most part, the Monthly Dungeon Dwellers minis have been releasing with a regular pattern. Mostly, they have been alternating monthly between Monsters & Adventurers.

  7. I'd like to see a Battleguard Golem conversion kit. Similar to the one for the Dragonmen: https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/conversion/sku-down/03457 Some heads, some hands, maybe a torso, a few weapons?
  8. I've been happy to see a handful of Bones-specific minis make the shift to pewter. Namely the "Dragons Don't Share" adventurers. I like the bones a great deal, but I think there are a handful of minis that warrant a mini in metal as well as Bones: Highland Heroine: This is easily one of the best female barbarian minis on the market. The blade didn't seem to have reproduced as well as I'd hoped in bones, and it's unique among other reaper weapons, so I think it would make a fine option as a metal mini. Trista the White Wolf: Another excellent female mini. I rank this one up with Isabeau
  9. Wargods of Aegyptus have a fairly extensive "cat people" stock. You could trim off the bow, model a football on his other hand, & greenstuff a jersey on him & he's a jock.
  10. I think this makes my fourth or fifth elven ranger character I've painted in the last few years. In our "King for a Day" campaign our Elven Ranger Nightbreeze is the stealthy, two-weapon-wielding, murder train. In the campaign world there are a handful of godlike dragons that rule over the mortal, fey, and shadow realms with an iron claw, and Nightbreeze left her home to find out how to kill the dragon that rules over her elven nation. I thought the best mini to represent her was Reaper's Deladrin. I knew I'd need a weapon swap, so I chose to use the Bones version. I needed two i
  11. Thanks. Looking at it now I think I should probably add some eyebrows to make the stare a bit less ambiguous. ~Muninn
  12. When I went looking for a Kobold warlock PC there weren't a lot of options. I guess magic users are few & far between, so I decided to go the easy route & use the Kobold Sorcerer. A fellow player already owned it, so all the better. Yes it has sunglasses, a fact I didn't realize until I started painting. It's like a little lizard Morpheus. I wasn't sure about how to paint this mini. I'd planned the other PC's to have seasonal-themed colors, but the kobold, Myev, was the fifth character. I knew the player wanted it to have grey-green skin, so I started there. I then added so
  13. Thanks. My fellow players noticed the eyes right away too. Although they called it a Thousand-Yard Stare. One buddy picked it up & said "This guy's seen some things, man." lol ~Muninn
  14. This is actually the first mini I've painted up from my Bones II kickstarter. The Pathfinder Eando Kline mini seemed ideal for a bard. I've found it to be hard to find a good human mini wielding a bow, so I decided to look for something I could do a weapon-swap with. Fortunately Eando here has two empty hands. One of the good things about Bones minis is that they're really easy to carve, so it was really easy to cut a gap in the back of his hand, fit a bow from the Elven Weapons pack into the gap then refill the back of the hand with greenstuff. It's a far better option than pinning two ha
  15. I wasn't sure how to name this mini, since it's a discontinued P-65, so I figured I'd reference the currently available tin fig. I painted up Reeve here to be a Death cleric for a recent D&D Campaign. Since I wanted him to seem dark & carry a giant sword this mini seemed ideal. My toddlers got a hold of him a few weeks ago & he got chipped a bit, but I think I was able to recover the damaged areas I wanted to give him a Wintery motif so I used a muted palette of dark greys, blues, and white. It was a fairly simple mini to paint, so the hardest part was probably the face
  16. Here are the last two minis I intended to complete in July. The first is a limited edition Necron Lord that was only available by buying the original large army box from Games Workshop. I've had it for years, and I know it originally belonged to my old Navy roommate, but I don't really know how it ended up in my bits box. We often bought minis off one another, or swapped minis, or painted for one another, so I don't know if my current ownership of this guy is an accident, or he result of a trade. Oh well. as long as I have him, he might as well be painted. I painted him in the s
  17. Well thank you. Unfortunately I didn't complete it how I'd intended, but there's still a bit more to come. So July is over, and I didn't make my goal of completing 31 minis in 31 days. I did manage to finish 30 minis, if you include the extra SoB & Seeker, but it wasn't what I was trying to do. So what happened? There were a few things I hadn't anticipated. My wife went to a teaching conference in another state for 5 days, leaving me with the kids. That wasn't an insurmountable challenge, but it did mean I had to be a lot more active at night, during my usual painting time. Then, whe
  18. It is. Although I'm back as a favor more than anything else. I resigned at the start of Summer to allow a recently laid off coworker to keep his job and to concentrate on my Masters classes, & those don't begin again until August, so it works out well. Looking at the images on my home computer it looks fine, but on my work computer it's blown out. Maybe I just need to recalibrate the monitors. Like Chaoswolf said, it's a Games Workshop kitbash. The upper body is an Amber Wizard from the Empire Deathclaw box. I got the mini from a bits seller for pretty cheap & a buddy gave me the
  19. Alright. I'm in the home stretch. I'd better be at least. At this point I've completed 28 minis: 26 "day" minis, and 2 extras (the SoB & the extra Seeker). For me to feel satisfied in completing my challenge I need to complete 3 more minis today. It'll be close, but I think I'll make it. The minis for last Friday and Saturday are a pair of Khorne daemons. A Bloodletter & Bloodcrusher. I didn't mean for it to happen this way, but that means for Daemon week I painted up two minis for each Chaos power. Not too shabby. Either way here they are. The 'Letters & Crusher use the same ba
  20. I know the finer stuff gets lost at a distance, but I just can't help it. I should probably just try to rip through these last few miniatures instead of using detail, but it's tough to detach from painting detail. I've always had a soft spot for Nurgle's daemons. I was particularly excited when they got their own plastic plague bearers back in 2012. They're great looking sculpts, & paint really easily. Usually my painting style lends itself to clean lines, like Eldar, but I really like how my Nurgle minis turn out. I thank Athonian Camoshade wash for that. The first mini is the He
  21. I was really interested in the Khorne Daemonkin codex when it came out. It fixed a few things, added a few useful units for daemon players, & made me consider branching out a bit. As I evaluated my mini inventory it occurred to me that I have a lot more Tzeentch units then any other Chaos faction, so I decided then to start building toward a Tzeentch Daemonkin codex. These are two more additions to that goal: My Daemons have all been painted with a color scheme in mind. All Slaanesh are grey & pink, Khorne is red, Nurgle is green, & Tzeentch is blue. That's why all my "p
  22. Alright. I'm catching up. I have several finished & several more close to complete. Today's mini are the start of Daemon Week, so I opted for a pair of Seekers of Slaanesh. I started painting them about this time last year for OFCC. I only needed them to be up to three-colors, so I didn't complete them to my personal standard, but now I have. There are 3 others that need to be completed, but I'm already behind, & didn't want to push the envelope too much. The Seekers were primed white, then the upper portions were washed with Tentacle Pink mixed with Lah
  23. I'm working on my blending. I hear once a painter has the two-brush technique down you can start knocking minis out pretty quickly, but for now I'm sticking to the "cell shading" technique I know. I'm about a week behind at this point, which is the furthest in the hole I've ever been during this challenge. Long story short, I'd forgotten my Summer college finals were this week & I had to concentrate on the last week of classes. I've made some ground though, & I hope to be able to paint 2+ minis a day from this point forward. Last Friday's mini is an oooold Skink mini I bought whe
  24. I'm behind in my painting duties. It turns out vacation with my wife's family isn't necessarily a time to relax, rather, it is an occasion where everyone spends most of their waking hours with members of the family, cooking, riding, shopping, eating, etc. That isn't a complaint at all, it's just an observation. There isn't much time alone, and given that her family doesn't understand my enjoyment of painting, or nerd culture, I only broke out my painting stuff after everyone had gone to sleep. That really didn't give me a lot of time. One of the minis I managed to finish while trav
  25. Thank you. I'm a newspaper photographer, so I work with contrast a great deal, particularly when it comes to black & white, so I'd like to think that some of that carries over to my painting. I liked the Island of Blood box when it came out, but I didn't have much reason to buy it since I didn't collect Elves or Skaven, and I didn't really play WFB. I picked up a few minis here & there from bits websites, like the Elf Mage & Skaven Warlord. They look great & are cheap on bits orders ($2-3 usually), but the units, like the Swordmasters & Seaguard, have to be bought as en
