  1. Hi everyone, Here is my vignette featuring the Blacksting Wyvern hunting down a 500MD helicopter. This is a little project I had fun with recently. i painted the Blacksting Wyvern from Bones a bit more than a year back and was quite happy with it collecting dust on my shelf (original post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/86236-blacksting-wyvern-speed-paint). Then, I stumbled across a 1/48 helicopter model I had almost forgotten about. 1/48th scale does fit nicely with 28mm heroic scale. The creatives juice started flowing and I decided to make a surprise encounter between the modern warfare machine and the legendary beast. I experimented as well with epoxy resin + food coloring for water, tree bark (for rocks), a couple of random 3D-printed broken statues/rubbles and toilet paper plaster for the terrain. I didn't have a clear acrylic rod for the flight stand, but wooden dowel painted black blends OK. I also forgot how much fun it is to build and paint plastic models. It is both similar and very different from miniatures painting. I'm quite happy with the result even though I could have been neater on a few places and it is a bit big for my light box. C&C appreciated
  2. This is soo creepy! but your paint job is wonderful.
  3. Chronoscope Mad scientists lab. Figures: Kelpie (77275) Decker Lugstampf (80031) Hellstromme (91002)
  4. The rocks recipe is quite easy: Mix of Tan, Cinammon Brown and Black at different random ratio for the base colours. Apply to stones randomly (don't really need to be neat) to get some variety Cover with a "poor man's blackwash" (dollar store craft paint watered-down a lot). This lets the sculpt texture do all the work on shading. Some Agrax earthshade in the recesses to hide the crimes light stippling on a few rocks (to be fancy)
  5. This is my take on the Bones 4 Blacksting Wyvern. Definitely not to the level of the beautiful one from Sirithiliel. But I’m pretty pleased with it. I used a lot of shortcuts to get the most bang in the least amount of time : “blending” with airbrush, overuse of washes, and “dirty” feel to hide the crimes. This sculpt was a pleasure to work on and the large wingspan really makes it stand out (and hard to take pics of).
  6. This project was initiated by a little failed experiment with 2 parts epoxy resin (for water effect) that snowballed into a completely unrelated diorama. I put a kelpie in a clear tube and poured epoxy resin on it. There were too many bubbles in it. But this reminded me of the round aquariums so often pictured in mad scientists’ lab. The closest mini for scientists I had, were 2 chronoscope Bones. The furniture and decor is a mix of handmade (foam, clay, random recycling), Boardgame spare pieces (Dungeon Saga) and Bones. C&C welcome.
  7. This is beautiful ! And the patience to do the colour combination on each scale is to be commended.
  8. To change from fantasy, I wanted to do a quick paint of a Chronoscope mini in Bones. According to the store, it is "Frank Buck, Adventurer". I like the sculpt and its likeness to a very famous archaeologist / adventurer in the movies. My goal was a quick & simple paint job and nothing fancy for the base. The problem was that the mini was badly bent at the ankles making it lean forward a lot and no boiling/cooling was able to fix it. So, I still had to re-base it, and got a bit carried away in the re-basing process which yield to this mini vignette: "Heading into the Jungle" The tree and base texture was made with Scupley and lichen. The car is a Tamiya model kit of a Russian field car.
  9. Hi all, Here is my take on the Graveyard Golem that came with the Crypt expansion in Bones 3. I tried to give its eyes an eerie glow to show what evil animates it and it also matches the glow in painted on the runes inside the crypt. (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/77887-crypt-graveyard-expansion/)
  10. This is a beautiful Stompy Robot. I love how you managed to black line and highlight all the details while keeping a military 2-tones colour scheme
  11. The glowing effect was done by starting with the painted floor (gray + black / brown wash). Once dry, I heavily diluted some white and put it in the crevices so the next colour will pop. Finally, I put some heavily diluted "neon green" craft paint for it to pool in the crevices, and spread it a bit more with my fingers around the runes to give the osl look. It didn't take that long as it was mostly base coat, wash, dry brush with the exception of the green glow. I'd say a couple of hours (give or take) without counting the dry time for the washes (that took forever for such a large piece)
  12. Hi, I finally managed to post some pictures of the Crypt from the Bones 3 graveyard expansion I painted. I went with a simple paint scheme with a heavy dose of washes and over-brush + dry-brush to cover these large areas and keep them interesting. For the inside, I decided to give the markings on the floor an eerie glow and had fun practicing with my airbrush on the tiles. I really like how they molded the door hinge to allow it to swing open. It allows for some fun pics.. Peek a BOO!
  13. Hi, I found a pack of these little buggers in the 1$ bin of my FLGS. They are 15mm "flames of war" minis (WWII type) and I though I could try to make use of them for my CAV infantry. I just modernized them a bit with some green-stuff goggles (which has the advantage of not making me paint eyes on 15mm minis and match the canopies of my Terran CAV) and did speed paint. Here is the result: They are a bit big for CAV, especially next to a transport vehicle, but they will do for the purpose of the game. Other pic for scale:
  14. Hi, I painted "Eric, the Paladin initiate" as a random mini from Bones 2. I like his contemplative look and pose... So I decided to make a little vignette/diorama by adding one of the graveyard statue from Bones3. I call it "Time to Reflect". The base is an Orange juice cap, and the tree is from Woodland Scenic. C&C Welcome
  15. Hi, Here is my take on the Carrion Worm from Bones 3 Graveyard expansion. The chubby and cute look (if you forego the big fangs) made me want to paint it a bit like a pink grub. C&C welcome
  16. Hi, Here is my take on Grundor Hoardtaker in Bones. I realized I was too heavy-handed on washes resulting in a "dirtier" looked than what I intended... But it is good enough for tabletop.
  17. Thank you all for the nice comments. The craft paints are "FolkArt Metallic". I got them in Walmart (Canada). I used copper (very red) and bronze (more orange). The washes were Vallejo game ink. Yes, the skin on the wings is also metallic. (Very diluted metallic paint on white primer)
  18. She is looking great! i really like how you painted the "white" shirt.
  19. Hi, Here is my take on Kyphrixis painted as a Copper Dragon. I used metallic (craft) paints throughout. What I found the hardest was to try to break the monotony of a big metallic piece and give him character. I mostly used various alternated washes to try to accomplish that, and a good dose of verdigris. C&C always appreciated. (Also, due to the metallic sheen, I struggled to take good pictures so I varied backgrounds)
  20. Sooo many shades of awesome !
  21. It is really looking crisp. And the leathery brown skin is just right.

    Wow, so many details and hoses with different colours. Such neat paint job. I love the glow effect on its Halberd looking weapon. And the green goop on the base is just incredible. Definitely looks radioactive
  23. No adventurer got swallowed yet. But thanks for getting its name right. Goremaw... I updated the title
