  1. Ha. Wormhole. LOL. As requested... Plus a free X-Wing upgrade - any ship whose movement template or base overlaps Goremaw or any ship model which comes in contact with Goremaw rolls 2 attack dice and is assigned damage shown.
  2. I'm just really proud of this, my first work with an airbrush ever. Maybe it's not the best skill & craft work out there for finishing a figure, but I think I win some points for originality. What I learned... Sometimes, inspiration comes when you think your finished (my son said "I thought you were going for a nebula") Sometimes, your wife says "It needs something iridescent" when you think you're done and she's right. Sparkling Amethyst on the spines Airbrushing means mixing and getting your consistency exactly right - I got lucky on my first try Airbr
  3. There are some stunning photos of this figure in the inspiration gallery - mine is very much in progress, but if you're tackling him, don't miss this detail on his back.
  4. Thanks guys - I'm learning tons on the forums and on youtube - I actually did this dragon just a few weeks ago and look at it now sort of wishing I had known more. Oh well - there's always rubbing alcohol if it gets to be too disappointing. My proudest work so far is in the show-off forum. My bugbadger is my masterpiece so far. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63909-bugbadger-if-he-kills-it-he-wears-it/ I really love painting and wish I could work in alot more. Sometimes, I see someone's work and I'm inspired, sometimes crushed. I also really appreciate the encouragement o
  5. Sorry for the long delay on this answer - didn't see the post. For me, Krylon Colormaster Primer dries really well. I usually spray very light coats, maybe two or so, depending on the angles I need to hit. I use black primer (not flat paint). It's dry to the touch in just a few minutes, but read the cure time on the can - I think it's 24 hours. I usually prime mine and walk away for a day or more. I learned to paint long ago using black paint on metal. When I got my first bones, I went to the garage and found a can of the Krylon sitting there - black primer. It wasn't a scientific decision
  6. What's funny is, my son bought the figure and said "Dad, paint him brown. Bugbears are brown." I disobeyed a direct order.
  7. A little better view of the colors. My favorite detail for some reason is the dryng blood on the bandage on his knee. The badger lines down the back make the character though. In game, this guy will be a sort of mean Chewbacca, I'm thinking.
  8. This is bugbear has been reimagined as a bugbadger. He wears the scales of a young dragon, a loincloth made from a tiger pelt, and a wolf's tail adorns his spiked club's handle. I cannot wait until my group sees this guy land on the table.
  9. Baugi, I agree - something needs to happen on the pale bits. There's no look of use there. I wanted to honor the white fin edge of the brook trout - originally, I planned to hit the trailing edge of the wings with a white edge, but talked myself out of it. Do you have an example of the coloration you're talking about? Darkening toward the tips like the top ones on this guy? Or more like this?
  10. Sure - I'm no expert, so I'm looking for advice. I'd love to get more realistic, but maybe my vision & hands just won't let me.
  11. I'm getting back into painting after an 18 year break (finally raised a kid who likes D&D). I've painted a few figures in my time, but tend to avoid larger pieces. I try to imagine creatures or people in real settings before I paint them. I love science, so I want to wrap my head around the biology of a creature or the environment of an adventurer. I guess I like something in fantasy that anchors me to reality. So when I started Ebonwrath (bones) I couldn't get the brook trout out of my head. It's my favorite fish and I think its blend of color and pattern is very fetching. B
