  1. Howdy, I am Grr-Hoot! A feather in my cap, Kev!
  2. Greetings! I thought I'd start a WIP as an ongoing personal incentive to get the larger monsters in my Bones 3 collection painted up & finished - it's mostly all Dragons but I also have some of the other larger monsters that I may throw into the mix here & there. I'm kicking off with Diabolus & Stormwing & I'm using their names as the general inspiration for the colour schemes I'll be using. First off I glued the minis up & filled in any major gaps with green stuff: When dry, I painted the green stuff areas with primer followed by a coat of light grey to try & match the surrounding bonesium colour.
  3. Howdy, Deadlands Noir... More Noir por favor, Kev!
  4. I finished up the Obsidian Crypt from Bones 3's Graveyard expansion. Used a fair amount of spray paint on this one, as I found that it didn't interact as badly with the harder Bonesium than it does with the regular stuff. I also used a bit of blue painter's tape to keep various areas protected, and wound up making use of a marbling spray to get the effect I wanted, and I'm pretty happy with it. It worked best on the floor rather than the walls, but I'm satisfied with it overall. I haven't glued any of the walls together, because it makes it easier to use as terrain or display. I also mounted some magnets in the floor, and glued some nails into the open areas in the walls so that the whole thing stays together better. It was my first real attempt at using magnets in miniatures, and I'm pretty excited about it.
  5. Howdy, Lead you to R'lyeh I will! Click to zoom, Kev!
  6. An nice death figure I use in S&S, an ares game. Really nice bone 3 model!
  7. Another attempt on NMM! LIKED the miniature alotta! And because of my daughters I'm now painting more female miniature which I have done at all.. Happy with the result. Still big fan of the Bones 3 mini's
  8. Each of these took me about two hours to paint. Pretty happy with how they turned out, but I was going for more if a woven grass look on the hobgoblin but don't think I actually achieved it.
  9. Hello fellow miniature painters! This is my first attempt at painting a r̶e̶s̶i̶n̶ Bonesium miniature model. My local miniature hobby shop was holding a painters' meet-up and the subject was anything humanoid or figurine. I bought the Frost Giant King and got my paint scheme and inspiration from KingMob's painted Frost Giant King. I think I did an okay-ish job, although no where as good as KingMob or other experienced painters here. Also the sword and spear are bent. Gonna try to straighten it by softening in boiling water and quenching in ice water. I bought a couple more Reaper Minis and hope to complete them some time soon.
  10. WIP thread here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79164-trakzul-as-red-dragon-and-treasure-hoard/ I picked up T'Raukzul to be my colossal Great Wyrm Red dragon, and spent a lot of time putting together the pieces for his base. I used the resin treasure hoard from Reaper (though they never seem to have it in stock, so I had to get it from a third party seller) and the pewter treasure piles in the parts referenced above. I also used a Bones 3 vampire warrior as a marble statue, some bits and pieces from the weapons sprues (including a sword in the stone), a random elephant necklace I had lying around, and aquarium terrain. The WIP thread shows a lot of the building blocks being put together. I also mounted a thread of LED lights into the aquarium terrain and did some minor work trying to make it glow when I turned the thing on. Despite my best efforts to seal up the gaps, some light leaks through, but it sort of works as magma veins. The photos of the lights on are harder to get, as they get drowned out by too much other lighting. Overall, it took me about 5 days of work, off and on. I tried to get some variety in the treasure hoard, painted up a vase to resemble a Ming vase, tried to have lots of bits and pieces scattered around. I'm pretty satisfied with the results, though. It's a pity I probably won't have too many encounters where I'd be able to use him, but I look forward to putting my players' characters in jeopardy at least once.
  11. I stayed one of my last big miniatures from Bones 3 finally, and put together a large base for him. He's enormous, so I decided he'd be my colossal Great Wyrm Red Dragon. I assembled the base from some treasure pieces, including pewter Treasure Hoard II (02320) and resin Treasure Hoard Vignette (74016) as well as several loose bits, including an elephant from am old necklace is bought for the chain. I also used a piece of aquarium terrain for the rock formation. I did most of the sculpting using Super Sculpy, and I added modeling snow and rocks for texture.
  12. Hello! Presenting Diabolus, The Devil Dragon. I wanted this dragon to look as though it had a fiery core, I did this by starting with the lightest yellow as a base & then building up the fire colours so that the deepest parts of the dragon remained (visually) the hottest. I suppose it's the opposite of the usual way of doing things...... It was a little frustrating & counterintuitive as I couldn't really use any shading or washes. I think it turned out ok though. The WIP for this mini can be found at http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/78084-here-be-dragons-or-theoldguard-tries-to-make-a-sizable-dent-in-his-painted-bones-3-collection/ Thanks for looking, feel free to comment.
  13. Midi

    Bones 3 Oni

    Trying to get more detail into my minis. This is my first attempt at muscular detailing.
  14. SparrowMarie

    Dagon

    I finished! Unfortunately he doesn't fit in my light box quite right so I had to just use my blanket as a back drop. The lighting could be better also. Overall I'm really happy with him. Spoiled for big pictures.
  15. For your consideration, I offer you the Frost Giant King from the Bones 3 Kickstarter. He is the pair to the Frost Giant Queen and I am not disappointed in the sculpt. This miniature (bigature?) is packed with details and a metric-ton of space to paint and practice textures. The level of detail for Bones miniatures continues to impress me. The King and Queen were both primed with Krylon and sealed with Dull Cote and neither exhibits tackiness. The bits that stick out - like the butt of the spear - did rub off when I handled it during painting. I really had to work my way from the inside out to paint this big guy. The fur textures on the fur cape was an enjoyable ride. I look forward to seeing what others do with this team of Giants, and I'm eyeballing the release schedule for the Frost Giant Guards. I recommend purchasing the Royalty as soon as they are available. Gratitude for all who participated in the WiP thread. Your enthusiasm kept me going. #respect #gratitude I hope you enjoy. :)
  16. Howdy, Herpetologists agree... She slither down! Kev! P.S. Click the pic to examine the flaws in all their glory...
  17. Howdy, Might as well stay on the translucent train... Spacebo, Kev!
  18. Howdy, Not sure what inspired me to work on this. The model has been sitting in among my candidates for quite a while... Danke, Kev!
  19. I painted this guy a while ago, and as soon as it was previewed in the Kickstarter, I was reminded of Slade from the old Teen Titans cartoon. His design worked really well as a basis for the paint scheme here. The pictures were taken on the painting table, as I never really got around to taking some in the photo booth, unfortunately.
  20. 60 Minute speedpaint and adding axe took maybe 5 minutes.
  21. I finished this up right at Christmas to give to a friend as a gift. This is the first dragon I've ever painted (though I have been painting historical stuff for many, many years). It was certainly a learning experience, painting a dragon is not like painting a WW2 tank, and if I had been smart I would have done one for myself first as a test but time was of the essence and I was glad I finished it in time. I picked purple because its one of my friend's favorite colors, and was pleased to find there are actually purple dragons in fantasy, called Deep Dragons. I bought the Royal Purples triad from Reaper and used Imperial Purple as the main color and shaded and highlighted the scales with the Nightshade and Amethyst purples. The crest was painted with Coal Black from the holiday set before highlighting with the purples. The chest was a mix of Amethyst and Imperial purple. I added the blue gems on the chest late after seeing some other examples of Kyphrixis on these forums that had the gems painted. The wings in the photos are the third attempt at painting them, the first two versions I did not like. The first try was the base purple with a mottling of ivory. I was hoping to get a translucent look but it didn't work. Then I painted them Terran Khaki with the Ivory mottling to get a parchment look but that didn't look right either. I was going to repaint them in the base colors but wondered what they would like if I just covered the Khaki/Ivory with Army Painter Purple Tone. Two coats of the Purple Tone and I liked how it looked. I spray dullcoated him but the wings still have a bit a sheen from the Purple Tone. The rock base was painted charcoal then drybrushed with various greys and tans and the wood base is something I picked up at the craft store which was stained and varnished before the plastic base was glued on. I definitely learned a lot painting him and look forward to painting the rest of the dragons I got in Bones 3.
  22. Howdy, I guess it's time to show this one... Thanks for the feedback, Kev! P.S. The pattern is inspired by the natural coloration of the coral snake.
  23. Here is another semi WIP thread for another Bones 3 model. My youngest son had painted him in a nice coat of ultramarine blue and had left him. I then have the fun task of finishing it off to some reasonable level. So so after a couple of coats green and some dry brushing I got to this stage. I am actually really happy how this turned out. I am not sure I would have attempted the blue under the green, but it seems to work well. Anyway onto the base, didn't realise how much detail it had. As always comments welcome.
  24. Got the ogres and ogre command in Bones 3 and decided to paint them all up at once so that they'd match. I call the regular ogres Huey, Dewey, and Louie due to their colors (I find a clear color delineation makes it easier to track them during games) and I really like the floral pattern on the green bags, like he just scrounged them up from someone else. The command figures were fun, creating all the mismatched plates on the warrior. I decided that the ogre "sorceress" should be "hot" so I painted her up in a tartan mini skirt and semi transparent white shirt, as well as putting her "purse goblin" in pink and giving her a tramp stamp (didn't get a great photo of that, sadly). I really enjoyed painting these guys up. Edit: I swapped out the Ogre Fighter's mace for the hooked blade from the Fire Giant Jailer, because I just liked the hooked weapon more.
  25. I got around to painting the Bones 3 Stoneskull expansion "Jungle Titan" a few months back, figured I'd post him up. I wasn't sure on color palette, but then I remembered he was referred to as a "Kaiju" during the KS, and decided to crib the colors from Pacific Rim (or "Awesome Dumb Robot Movie") for the palette, and I think it came out pretty well. His base includes the fallen pillar from Bones 77363 Deva and some clay.
