SPACEFUTURE: CP's Alien Sensei as Martian Anchorite
Rigel posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingAll Martians have psionic powers to some extent, for telepathic communication at the very least. A few possess talents far beyond the Martian norm. Undisciplined use of these powers could cause disruptions to the usually orderly Martian society, but a species learns a thing or two over the course of a million years. A rigorous program of focus, meditation, and training out in the Crystal Wastes will hone those wild talents to a suite of keen, well-directed tools. This fellow, from CP Miniatures (Sci-fi, Non-Commissioned, Alien Sensei) is one such psionic anchorite, learning proper and responsible use of telekinesis, remote viewing, illusion, and mental manipulation. Please do not call them a "space wizard" even though it seems quite accurate by Earth standards; the Martian academicians insist it is very different altogether from space wizardry and very disrespectful to confuse the two. The nuances of the distinction are lost on Earthlings, but then so very few of us have psionic talent in the first place. Here's the Anchorite with a few other Martians, including 50197, whose paintjob got a touch-up. Keep watching the skies, cadets!
Haven't finished painting Tweed Tincup the Leprechaun, but couldn't resist this little fella! Here he is in the native Underdark, featuring some crystals from Mantic and 77312, Wall of Ice. Too sweet for this grim world. So cheerful and cute! Also just a little guy--even smaller than my wee homemade shroomfellas! Here are a few more fun guys and gals!

14296 Warlord Familiars - Skeleton
Samedi posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingAnd another RVE leftover finished! I painted the crystals during RVE during Erin Hartwell's crystal painting class and then decided to use them as a background for the little warlord skeleton I had lying around on my shelf. While I'm happy with the overall composition of this piece a few things went wrong: The varnish on the crystals stayed tacky. While this is probably a user error on my part I'm not really happy with the overall performance of the translucent bones material (even when painting it) and I'll avoid it in the future (Bones USA looks very promising, though, and might actually be an alternative to pewter for me) I wanted to add interest to this little scene with some eerie water effects. I tried greenstuffworld's lime green water effect. To make it pop a bit more, I base coated the "deepest" part of the water with a mixture of white and MSP green goo. Turns out I greatly misjudged the opacity of the water effects and now I'm left with chalky spots beneath a somewhat unimpressive slime. Oh well, you live to learn! All in all I learned a lot painting this up, but now it will go to the back of my vitrine. I do like the skeleton, though. 😇 C&c very welcome, as always!

Bones Wall of Ice 77312
lexomatic posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI'm pretty happy with my Wall of Ice. The WIP is here. I tried doing the highlighting 2 different ways - I described it in the WIP - but I don't remember which is which anymore. I used a variety of inks - I'll have to get back about which ones exactly, I don't remember any more - to try and create some variety in the thickness of the ice, but it didn't work out so well. Edging was done with Reaper Ghost White. There's some happy accidents in there too where the brush slipped. If anyone's wondering, yes this is still see-through.
Maledrakh's 77312 Wall of Ice
Maledrakh posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI really have far too many miniatures. At least 20, and with a further 20 inbound from the 20 kickstarters I have backed the last few years. So for 2016 I will try to crank out those minis at an elevated pace, and chalk up an even 366 -one for each day - finished by the end of the year. Of course, this means to avoid spamming the excellent reaper forums with samey, production-line dross nobody really wants to see, I will not be posting each and every one done here even though the rpchallenge says I should. Instead I will post Reaper minis and maybe some other that I find interesting enough. The rest will get pictures linked to the rpchallenge monthly post for anybody who might be interested. so.... Continuing with my transparent bones experiments: All transparent minis should first be undercoated with Army Painter Anti Shine transparent matte varnish, so that the paint has something to grab on to. This part is Key. After that, I find that simple is the way to go with the transparent Bones for best results. This one was transparent blue to start with, I gave it a wash with Army Painter Quickshade Blue, drawing off the excess and when dry, a very careful corner drybrush with an offwhite with a turquoise tinge. And that is simple but effective wall of ice! (or blue Fortress of Solitude if you like.) 77312: Wall of Ice Reaper Miniatures Bones KS2 Bonesium PVC Oval base from warbases.
