  1. Been a while since I have been here. Since it became clear I was never going to paint again till I get a place with a work space I have not been to these forums. Chronoscope line looks great! My favorites are the Anime Heroins. Have two of those. Want the rest. Espeacialy Whitney. The minis finder is super easy to use now. Found Eskin, Male Rouge with no problem. Was using him for a Star Wars game and lost him. I'll be ordering a new one unless I decide to order Cobra, Modern Ninja instead. Reaper TV! Awsoem! I remember metioning how that would be a great idea ages ago. Way to follow through. Glad to see my favorite miniatures company is doing great. Hope I can get to paint again some day. Till then I guess its Legondary Encounters for me.
  2. I thought this would be fun. What games have you seen Reaper minis used in. I'm sure Warlord and CAV would be obvios so what other games have you see them used. For me it has been Bushido, Earthdawn, and Dungeons and Dragons. I've personaly used Reaper for running verious incarnations of D&D and used a Reaper mini for Bushido. I have also seen Reaper used for Earthdawn but can't remember if it was when I played or not.
  3. I will tell you what I tell everyone who takes an intrest in painting minis. A miniature is just a 3-D colloring book. If you can collor in a book, then you can paint a figgure. Its that simple. And remember, you can do at least as good as those pre-painted figgures so don't be afraid.
  4. Thanks. Your right. It dose say Male Rogue. Thats what I get for multitasking. Last day of vacation and was trying to get out as much of it as I can. Also, I almost never think to link anything. I need to do that more here when talking about figgures. You may be right about the red. Something to consider. But, alas, vacation is over. I'm going to have to put the paints away. Thanks for the responce.
  5. It was a metalic gold. The gold was pretty old and looked kind of dark for gold. Almost bronze. So I mixed in a bit of silver wich brightened it up a bit.
  6. Oops. Too late. I just could not wait. I ended up going gold on the lions claws, eyes, and main. After seeing the end result I'm wondering what I was thinking with blue. I am very plesed with my work. The only thing I would have done differently was use a darker yellow on the main, teeth, and claws befor going over it with the gold. Wish I had a digital camera. Well, I'm off to put a sealer on it.
  7. I posted a bit on general about how I thought Eskin was a better fit for Chronoscope, he's a great figgure, and that I would like to see him in the painted gallery. But what I realy need is some thoughts on painting him now. Generly I'm thinking leaving him black with gold, brass, or copper armor bits. I'm likely going to paint equipment brown or beige to compliment the mettal. But here is the problem. After priming Eskin black I noticed he (or she) has long hair. I'm kind of stumped. I don't want a blond, brown would likely get lost as well as black. Exotic anime collors like blue or pink would segest male or female and be to jarring with the collor scheem. Anyone have any thoughts or segestions?
  8. D&D Minis? Laking you say? I don't see where you could have gotten that idea? Accualy I find D&D mini's are a gateway to painting. Even a beginer can do at least as well as the D&D pre-painted line. I don't remember if the Learn to Paint series has a brush on primer. I would recomend a can of white spray primer to begin with. I disaggree with Darious on the sand and static grass. True it dose look great but if you are like me and want to mix up your plastics and paints on the battle mat then simply painting your bases black works too. Remember not to let your painting overwelm you. take it one step at a time and remember that most mistakes are easily fixed.
  9. I am pleased to say that I'm getting some painting in. What I'm working on now is the Celestial Lion. I'm taking a very different approche from the painted example on my card. Since the Lion is a summoned creature I wanted it to look more otherworldly. He is primarily white with a light yellow dry brush. I plan tho make his main and longer fur a darker yellow but he needs a little more zing. My first thought was to tip the longer hairs with a blue and collor the claws dark yellow. But my some one seggested I go gold. Bright gold in the main would look great and would not be as garish. But then what should I do about the teeth and claws? Dark Gold? Blue? Any thoughts?
  10. Well I hope to get Ape-X. He's a real cool figgure. But I was wondering if we are ever going to see his partner... Villian-S.
  11. My space never gets to bad because I do not have a dedicated space to work in. I'm so jealous of all you guys that have a desk or even an entire basement to yourselves. I'm lucky to get an entire week on the kitchen table befor someone decides they need it more. At least we are not the type of familly that feels they have to eat at the table.
  12. I've realy been digging the gnomes of late. The gnome sorcerer in no exception.
  13. Eskin is one of my favorite Reaper mins. He has an interesting pose and a unique look. I'm getting ready to paint him(?) and thought I'd try the painted gallery first. Allas, he is not there. I have an idea that his mask should be metalic. gold maybe. The outfit I was thinking should be black or grey with accessories being brown or grey. But the part that is realy throwing me is the hair. I never even noticed the hair flowing out of his mask untill after I primed him/her. I'm completely stumped. I also have a couple of comments, wich is why I have this on Reaper General. I would love to see Eskin in the painted gallery. I would love to see what an experts interpitation would be. Also, am I the only one that thinks Eskin would be a better fit for the Chronoscope line? I'm not painting him for a standard fantasy game. I plan to use him in Star Wars! He looks like a futuristic ninja infiltrator more than a mear Rogue to me. Advice or thoughts on any of the above are welcome.
  14. Thanks. I was just thinking while writing my last post that I needed more grunts. I mentioned that grunts don't last long at my FLGS. Its double so with any archer types for some reason. I think the local WH group has been suplementing there armies with WL. I remember looking at an awsume vampire at one of the saturday WH games. I was marviling at the paint job and detail of the sculpt. Then I saw the necropolis symbol.
  15. Garr appeals to me. He can lead a group of War Dogs. Also, The Hound of Judgement is a favorite. I painted him up real cool. Wish I could send a pic. Anyway, I had this idea od making a Crusader army and calling it The Dogs of War. All thouse Incubi I picked up resently. Big blisters of grunts don't last long at my FLGS so I snaged them up quick. A bit pricey but a good buy in the long run. I'm thinking I'll have them lead by Ashakia if I can in the new rules.
