    It's been awhile but I'm back. I think I had painter's block or something. I just could not get in the groove for paining. Now I am better. Here is the hill giant Krug. Hope you all like.

    2016 Annual contest discussion..

    Keep in mind that this is a year long contest. This gives people a lot of time. Even for people that are very busy. This way it gives people time to change it up a little. Try things they might not normally do. Push their own limits. I like the fact that time is on our sides. For me I like the larger figures but that is not to say I would not get into this if it was for the smaller ones too. I like the ideal of an adventuring party/squad but why not have it your party/squad acting out a scene of what they are fighting. Maybe they ran in to something large and in charge or maybe they ran into another party looking for the same treasure. Either way it will be fun again to start the year long contest. Here is my 2 cents: What Came Through The Portal - Create a scene with a portal of some type and what you think would of came out. Your Adventuring Party/Squad's Best Moment - Create a diorama that would define your party/squad's best moment. Maybe it was when you where fighting a green dragon for his/hers treasure or when your squad crushed the opposed faction. Mainly just a small group of 4 (or more) acting out a scene. Large Figure - 40mm + (This could be put it to bigger sizes) This could go for Reaper only figures as well as non Reaper.
  3. Here is my Purple Worm.

    77169 Flesh Golem - Zombie Style (I think)

    Thanks. I was trying to go for that glazed over eye look. Thanks. :) Thanks.The base came from a milk cap. It was the only thing I had at that moment...lol
  5. It's been a while, but got back the paint bug. Here is my take on the flesh golem. I was looking for the walking dead style but without the blood and gore (for the kids).

    D&D Collector's Series Purple Worm

    That would be so much fun. I just might do it. ;) Thanks. I am glad I did buy this. It was a very fun paint. This mini is done to the point of show off but I am going to build a diorama with the worm being the main focus point with just a bit more added to the base. The build will be in the near future because I just got my box of KS2. So I will be busy with those for a while...lol
  9. Wave 10 here and just got my big box of mini's. Dang, going to be busy for years....lol

    Here is another great monster in the D&D world. These type mini's are so much fun to paint. I can't wait to put this down on the map in our d&d adventure game night. Hope you all like. Here is the WIP thread - http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59921-dd-collectors-series-purple-worm-wip/

    D&D Collector's Series Purple Worm - WIP

    Finally got this thing done. Here are last of the WIP pics that I have. There are some pics that I did not post but you will see it in the show off thread. This was very fun to paint. I really like the look of the sculpt. Now I can focus on the big box of KS2 that just showed up today. Here is the show off thread - http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/forum/4-show-off/
  12. I used to use the primer I could get at the local auto parts store. For me it dried too tacky. I would put very thin layers on but still seemed to tacky. Maybe it was just me as I see some of you are having no problems. I went round and round with some other primers until I bought Vallejo. It goes on smooth with my airbrush and does not dry tacky. So far (for me) no problems with this primer. Some times I thin it down a little, some times I don't. It depends on the model. They do sell them in different colors. Just depends on what color base primer you want to go with. Not always do I use the same color.

    Looks really good so far. I will be keeping an eye on this build.

    D&D Collector's Series Purple Worm - WIP

    Thanks. Here is an up date. You can see from the pictures there was a big gap on the belly side and a smaller one on the top side. I had to fill them with some putty. I tried my best to follow the armor plates on the belly into the putty. The putty is easy to work with. Hopefully it blends and does not look too bad. I used vallejo primer and started to put some base paint down. The paint did dry a little shiny but I will fix that after the wash and highlights. The teeth will be the last things I paint. So far so good. This mini is very fun and looks killer. More to come soon.

    Agree. The eyes turned out excellent. The color blend is flawless. I can't wait to see when this is done.
