    Those are some pretty minis! I look forward to seeing what you do with them! Also, Reaper doesn't mind if non-Reaper minis are posted on the forums, just make sure to link to any NSFW minis (not that any of these are) instead of posting them directly

    Bones 4 Dragon Turtle

    I'm painting this big boy to be a Christmas present for my sibling. They've loved turtles and tortoises since they were little and when I saw this in the Kickstarter I knew I had to get an extra just so they could have one. To personalize it further I asked them (without telling them why) to pick out 5 of my paints. I'm going to incorporate all of these colors into my paint scheme in some way. This turtle is going to be very blue! And a little shiny! I'm also toying with the idea of working the belly pattern of their pet tortoise into the dragon's belly to make it extra personal. I decided to start on the shell. First I primed everything in green liner, and then I coated it all in blue ink. This actually created a really cool blue/green effect that I may use in future projects. I'm terrible about remembering to take pictures before the next step so you can see a bit of what I did next, but I took ultramarine blue and highlighted all the grooves and edges of the scales. Then I used dragon blue to pick out some higher highlights. Then I used dragon blue to pick out some higher highlights. Next up will be higher highlights in blue flame!

    Bones 4 Dragon Turtle

    Once I had the green how I liked it I turned my focus to the plates on the face and tips of the arms. I decided to paint these blue to match the shell I used the same color recipe but it looks somehow different in the shadows. I think something may have been off in my underpainting on these sections Next I tackled the eyes. A bit of research told me that turtle and tortoise eyes come with a loooot of variations. Some have rounded pupils, some are so dark the whole eye looks uniform, some are striped, etc. I decided to emulate a red eared slider He looks grouchy, doesn't he? After the eyes were done I decided to assemble the body. Between the eyes being done and the assembly, I'm finally starting to feel like I'm getting close to the finish line. Finally, I painted up his mouth. Now I just have to finish refining details, paint the barnacles and claws, and clean up areas that got a little messy or lost paint, and then I can move on to the base!

    Bones 4 Dragon Turtle

    I've been really bad about updating, sorry. I was dealing with some mental issues that made me not able to paint for a few weeks, and then when I did start painting again, even though I was taking pictures, I kept forgetting to put them up here! So I am going to bring this thread up to date, it's just going to take a couple posts. So after where I left off, I brought the highlights up to a very bright yellow green. I think, now that I've finished more areas on the turtle, that I'm going to bring them a little higher with a touch of maggot white on the highest points On the shadowed side of the figure, I left the highlights lower I also worked the skin around his face the same way. This is an in progress shot, but I'm pretty sure I brought things a bit brighter from here

    Reapercon 2020: early excitement and chatter

    My best advice, as someone who was a newbie this year, is definitely make time to socialize. For me, some of my favorite moments were sitting at the Hobby Hijinx table and talking to the people around me while we painted. I think (though I didn't play any) that the gaming tables would work well for this too. I met so many wonderful people this way. Also, I second the advice to take classes.

    Yaaassss sirens as their own set. I'm probably going to pass on Brinewater (I live the sculpts but prefer metal for PC and NPC minis), so I was really worried that these were going to be tacked on to Brinewind. And the translucent will be fun

    I would really like to see meriwyn and maersuluth as stand alone PC type minis in the future. They both have such great character design

    This makes me want to paint it up with some sheer iridescent paints, like the Golden interference paints... I agree that it needs to be clear :)

    I noticed when looking through the compiled previews in the now locked pre- bones 5 enthusiasm thread that there is at least one mermaid that was previewed that we haven't seen in the campaign yet
  19. Heads up, Creepy Tables is running a deal on their Svitiaz, La Charra, and Cursed busts I'm not sure if I'll make my will save on this one. If the Dryad was on sale too I'd have already failed

    Is anyone else getting Army of Darkness vibes from the Encounter at Gallowgard?
