  1. Recieved a sweet mini in the mail today!! Will get some pics taken and posted up sat. Thanks spiritual!!! the mini looks GREAT!!!
  2. I know everyone has seen all the Hulk golems that have been done up and i was worried about it, but when I saw humans avatar this guy just came to mind. Almost painted him up green to to match but couldnt quite bring myself to do it.
  3. Glad you like him!! was really difficult to give him up after he was all painted. Your pics look alot better than what i could have done so be proud!
  4. 1 Thin layer of any Gloss finish and then 3-4 thin coats of Testors Dull Cote. Great job on the mini!! Dont like GW stuff but looks good.
  5. Being as partial to half-lings as I am I have to say I like Biff the best!! Second fav is the stone golem. Very nice work on all.
  6. Its great to see some pieces done to that quality with Metallics!!! Alot of great painters use NMM but I still like to see metal surfaces done with metal!! Superb job all around.
  7. Anne do you use the Friedrich Dick needle files? or some other brand? Im NOT happy with my needle files ability to smooth things out so I want to try what your raving about.
  8. Very good!! clean crisp lines great highlights!! I really like the gold armor what paints/reciepe are you using?
  9. Mini is DONE...well almost have one little touch up on it. Was just about to put it in the box to ship when I noticed a small problem. Will be done and shipped out on Monday!!!!
  10. Excellent first mini. Dont change a thing. what you need to do now is put her up on a shelf and start painting others. Then in six months or so get a second one of this piece and paint her up again with the same color choices and see how much you have improved. And NEVER strip your first mini!!!! keep it so it can bring back fond memories of when you just started
  11. thanks eastman & anne im gonna do my best to try to match your work I know i cant replicate the wing patterns that you do but hopefully Ill still be able to get everything else to work out!
  12. Im currently painting the 72mm Sophie for my brother and have a question about the darklining. I know I need to darkline between the skin and clothing and areas of metal but should I darkline the skin and fingernails? Im thinking that I should but when I look at the reference photos of her I dont see any. BTW my brother wants the piece painted to match Anne's version as much as possible. So im trying to copy the color scheme so those are my reference photos. Thanks all.
  13. Just a couple of tips about posting, dont place a coin for reference in the pics the only time you need to make any reference is if its not a mini but a larger piece. also try to include the maker and model # in the description of it.
  14. When using the Testors Dullcote I apply 3-4 coats and let each coat dry 15-30 min before applying the next. If the piece is a playing piece I will do 5-6 thin coats. Just remember NOT to breathe the fumes!!!! This stuff is a Lacquer!! The fumes are toxic and highly flammable. Use a big box without the top and missing 1 side. But keep those to cover up the mini while drying. Place the mini on a smaller piece of cardboard that you have placed alot of primer on (that will keep it from sticking if your coat is to thick). then spray the front, side, back, opposite side, and finally go from front to back over the top and. the next coat go front, side, back, opposite side, and go from side to side over the top. 3rd coat repeats the first step and the 4th the second. if more coats are needed do first and second steps again. If the piece has alot of underside that needs to be coated hold the mini in your hand (wear a latex glove coverd by a leather glove) and spray that first.
  15. Another great piece Stern!! Im really impressed with the fact that its not a Freebooter (even if it is a Klocke) I am still hoping that you do a tutorial on your skin tones btw. Cant wait to see your dwarf also!!
  16. Good start! no suggestions on your painting however IMO you should try going with a neutral background for your pics. If you dont want to use just plain try putting them up against some field terrain. the wood really detracts from the pic's. The grain is just to busy. Some ppl use pure white, gray, or a light blue. With a plain background your kill markers would go from COOL!! to WAY COOL!!
  17. What are the product codes on these 2 pieces? My FLGS doesnt always get the newest mini's in and I want to be able to special order them If they dont.
  18. The Kobold raiders are already out there!! These two will add even more fun and excitement for my victims err.....gamers!!!!
  19. Saw awhile back that there are 2 new kobolds in the greens section but I havent seen them online or in my FLGS are they released yet? Will they still be released?
  20. Elouchard did an awesome job on the wings of this piece. And he gave a small tut about how he did them. http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?...topic=15231&hl=
  21. Stern your skin tones are fantastic as always! how about a WIP Tutorial on how you do them?
  22. Dont remember if Jester Posted his pic on here or not but I know that he painted this one up! Its in his gallery under the Old Jester Speed Studios. http://jestersminiaturestudios.com/ just click the link to galleries and look under Reaper. Its right on the first page.
  23. Great looking CAV. I havent gotten up the courage to try to paint one of these yet so it's impressive to me. Only thing I can see that looks wrong to me is in the first pic. The barrel looks like its bent. Could cause some problems on the battle field!!!
  24. Ok thats it no more posting Stern! some of us are still learning how to paint and its almost impossible to continue with the quality of work that your putting out distracting me!! LOL another great piece I would like to see some Reaper pieces from you that my only complaint.
  25. I see everyone's Sophie but yours Anne!!!! Can we at least get a little teaser pic maybe just a face pic or a wing??
