  1. This is a pair of terrain pieces that appeared in the Bones 3 pledge manager as was as far as I remember not actually a part of the Bones 3 KS campaign. Naturally, as it was called "Statue of Dagon" I had to have it. I kept the painting simple, as I want to use this as a scatter terrain piece. The main piece is 11cm tall. I forgot to put a mini in for scale again. Sorry about that. Statue of Dagon (as of yet it does not have a code number) Reaper Miniatures Bones 3 KS Unknown sculptor, it is not in the webstore yet. Bonesium PVC
  2. 60 Minute speedpaint and adding axe took maybe 5 minutes.

    Really like how this one turned out.
  4. he Bones 3 kickstarter shipment arrived at long last! Hoody Hoo! Which also means I have been in a frenzy of difficult mould line removal, scrubbing little white rubbery plastic bits in warm soapy water, dipping said bits in boiling hot water then cold to unbend bits here and there, and gluing stuff together and to their new bases. There are rather a lot of minis in this shipment... So I break it down into portions. Already I have roughly a square meter covered in mins that are ready for the undercoat. I snuck some of the translucent clear minis out first and did them up in time for their anti-shine spray varnish undercoat together with my Cthulhu Wars Glow In The Darks Great Old Ones that had been prepped for varnish undercoat just before I got the Bones 3 shipment. So I start with the Air Elementals. I do not know what Reaper calls these as they have not been released for general sale yet. I will simply call them Greater and Lesser Air Elemental. The Greater Air Elemental. I dirtied them up to a varying degree, as any twister pulls a lot of loose debris up into itself. I thought about sticking a bunch of flock to it here and there, but a dry run looked less than satisfactory. So I dropped that idea. My efforts to try to brush the flock into a blown pattern, did not work either. The Lesser Air Elemental. The bright light made them look a bit more frosted white than they actually are. At last I have the complete set of the four classic types of greater elementals. Greater and Lesser Air Elementals Reaper miniatures Bones 3 KS I don't know their codes nor sculptor/s as they are not yet in the reaper store. Translucent clear bonesium PVC 60mm and 40mm bases respectively.
  5. Was doing some prepwork for a Pathfinder campaign and realized, the PCs will be fighting an Ogre Sorceress fairly early on. Kind of hit me that "Hey I just Got one of those" so while I am still working through Bones 2, I went and dug into Bones 3 for this one. and damn she has turned out really nice. Very proud of this one and can't wait till she beats down my players.
  6. Howdy, Several from the bones 3 graveyard expansion... I don't do much basing, but I tried a little flocking, Kev!
  7. Finished the last mini in the Bones 3 Ogre Command set. Here is the Ogre Chieftain. He doesn't have a squire to polish his armor and the goblins use spit and their loincloths so....his armor isn't in the best of shape. The shield on the back probably needs some battle damage but I hated to mess it up after I spent so much time getting it to look nice! Maybe he "found" it. So here are pictures of the Ogre Chieftain and a group shot at the end. (I need a large photo background!) I added a tutorial on how to do the rust effect.
  8. The first miniature I have painted after opening Bones 3 box that arrived one week ago. Also, my first reaper miniature I would like to share. I must admit that I made a very poor job on the mould lines though and the paint job isn't as neat as I would like to... More pictures: http://zgielk.blogspot.com/2017/08/na-bezrybiu-i-smok-ryba.html
  9. These are the little standard bearers from Bones 3 Ogre Command set. I had considered adding bloody little handprints to the banner and then backed off because I wasn't sure. I think it turned out pretty well and I am really happy with their eyes! So here they are and a photo of them with the drummers because in my list 77567 says Goblin Standard Bearers and Musicians so I am guessing they are a set! C&C welcome!
  10. I recently finished the Dagon Statue terrain pieces from Bones 3. Nothing fancy, but a series of drybrushed layers. Step by step can be found here: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2017/08/dagon-statue-bones-3-terrain.html
  11. Knocked these out last night. Was a nice quick speed paint so I could get to doing the cultists. Needed something for them to stand around on the shelf. Used Dwarven Gold on the writing and the pics don't show that lovely peachy gold lustre from the paint.
  12. This past week I finished up the Shipwreck Revenant from Bones 3. I converted it to have figurehead on the front, made from the Bones 3 Succubus Queen figure, instead of the "face" piece that comes with the model. For anyone who would like to read the Conversion thread, see: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/75736-shipwreck-golem-with-sophies-mom-figurehead-conversion/ For anyone who would like to see the Work in Progress painting thread, see: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/75885-painting-my-converted-shipwreck-revenant-photo-heavy/ I'm generally pleased with how it turned out, and I think the figurehead makes a good addition to the model. Unfortunately, this is a very hard model to photograph well, as the long arms tend to block most angles and make any straight-on shot hard to accomplish. Also, the way the top hull juts out and tilts down (the figurehead addition didn't help this), makes the underside of the model hard to see as well; and combined with the way the arms jut out, gives a general top-heavy appearance.
  13. These are the goblin musicians from Bones 3. They are still a little shiny because it has been raining like mad here so they have not had their spritz of Dulcote. They have tiny little eyes but they were so fun to paint. I made the little stool goblin be rolling his eyes upwards. He hates his job. The drum carrier is pouting. You know how when you get a song stuck in your head? So does he! He also hates his job. The drummer LOVES his job and gleefully bangs on his drum all day! C&C welcome
  14. Howdy, A couple from the bones 3 core set... Kev!
  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. Finally finished the other frost giant and the queen. Very what I call "busy" sculptures to paint. Lots of detail takes more and more time. Just have the Jarl left! Couldn't wait to have fun and set them up. The scale of the new Giants are great!!! The sculpts are just as amazing! Kudos to reaper!!! Hope to see new version of Fire Giants!
  17. A bunch of you enjoyed my recent thread in the Conversions sub-forum in which I did some conversions on my Shipwreck Revenant from Bones 3, (To see that thread, click here: Shipwreck Revenant Conversion.), so I thought I'd do a thread to track my painting progress as well. To sum up that thread; basically, I replaced the "face" part of the Revenant with a figurehead using the Succubus Queen (Sophie's Mom) figure from the Bones 3 Stoneskull Expansion. I also replaced the Tiki Head on the back with a section of mast and a ship's wheel, as well as reinforcing the harpoon arm so it wouldn't warp under it's own weight, and a few other small additions. Here's a shot from about halfway though the work... So early this morning I gave all the parts a primer coat with Krylon with Fusion "Flat Black". Then, this afternoon when it was dry, I gave the parts an initial dry brush coat of Americana "Charcoal Grey" Followed with a dry brush coat of Americana "Mississippi Mud". And finished the base coat dry brushing with a final coat of Americana "Barn Wood". I'm now debating if I want to glue the whole thing together before moving on to the rest of the painting, or continue working on each part individually.
  18. While they're not perfect, they're as good as they're going to get due to mistakes made at the start. So the sons of Rodent Dorn, specialists in creating unassailable mouse holes.
  19. I'm not sure about skus, so I'll update tags later. I had a rough day and powered through a lot,so later you get pics without much process. Here are untouched and primed pics.
  20. It's been awhile since I've painted anything in general, much less a human-sized mini. I also tried giving her lipstick. It isn't great, but not terrible for a first attempt. Just doing something at tabletop quality anyway (or it is for me).
  21. Long time lurker, second time poster, first time upload. Here is the Frost Giant Queen from the Reaper Bones 3 Kickstarter for your consideration. I was unable to participate in the Bones 3 Kickstarter as I came upon these Bones figures late in the game. However, the participants who were able placed their unwanted miniatures up on eBay, so I took advantage of opportunity when presented. I focused on Color Theory and Texture on this piece as she provided a very large palette to paint upon. These Giants provided me practice in sketching too, which makes the entire line appealing to me. Side note: Gratitude to those who did place these minis up on eBay without jacking up the prices. I was able to purchase the both Frost Giant Royalty around cost of what Reaper will sell them at Retail. This certainly displays an ethos in the Reaper community that makes this community stand out among others. Further, having lurked for awhile: the community here is quite kind and helpful. This is a good community of miniature painters. I like the Bones miniature range. The detail on this miniature was very close to what I expect from the metal range, and I will purchase more of the Bones range in the future. I am looking forward to the resculpt of Vanya, the Fire Giant Princess, and her new size to match the Fire Giants in D&D. The attire of this miniature is akin to the Viking attire of old, and I found my SCA ventures to assist me in painting this Viking Apron and embellishments. The sculptor did an outstanding job and I look forward to more of their work. The FAQs were an asset that made my first foray into Bones an easier one. I had difficulty with flash lines until I picked up some diamond files, which handled them quite well without marring detail like my serrated files. The bent pieces were fixed with some boiling water and cold water quite easily. The pieces fit together like a glove, though I admit I still pinned them. (My OCD was tingling.) I did use Krylon as Primer, and the tackiness disappeared after the first coat of paint. She was sealed only with Krylon Dull Cote and exhibits no tackiness. She has been handled and there is no rubbing off of paint. I like how her base was round, though I am ignorant of what would be an appropriate Reaper base to place this inside of. (I currently have the King on a GW Dreadnought base, and I do not like it. If anyone reads this and has a recommendation, I surely would appreciate it.) This Bones line of miniatures has proven to me to be a Good Idea and one I will support. I am already purchasing more of the Bones 2 line for my D&D and Oldhammer alternatives, and I admit excitement at the new of Bones 4. Based on the quality of these miniatures: you will have an additional participant. Please keep up the outstanding quality and amazing work. I hope you enjoy my efforts. C&C is always appreciated: it is the only way an Artist can improve. May your blends be smooth. Peace and blessings.
  22. I haven't held a brush in many years, but it was bound to happen again--Evil cannot be contained forever. I now commence the assault on your senses with a selection of miniatures. The pictures aren't very good, but we have a start(l)ing place. Besides, they've just gone through the liner so there's not much (Deep HurtingTM) to see yet. Right now, I'll be looking for tabletop quality. The Imperial Assault minis are the group we've been using for the campaign and a selection of wookiees because I thought they might be fun. Diala Passil (Force-wielding twi'lek) is my character. I plan on painting her pretty closely to the character art. One of the Wookiee Warriors has been hit with Grey Liner, and the other with Brown Liner. I think the grey one will be an older wookie with white/grey fur or perhaps some streaks. I might make the other Warrior a very dark brown or even black. Gaarkhan (wookiee) is another player and will be a lighter (blonde-ish) furred individual. Chewbacca has been included because he was feeling left out, and it's not wise to upset a wookiee. Mak Eshka'Rey (bothan) is our ranged fighter/sniper. Mak will be painted orange/amber as inspired by our youngest cat and will have a blue uniform because I don't much care for green. Davith Elso (Force-wielding human) rounds out the party. Davith will also probably closely match the character art. The goal is to have the four PCs all painted for the final game of the campaign in three weeks. The Undertaker has been given his base of Brown Liner. I'll never use it in a game, but he would make a decent representation of The Necromancer for a fantasy setting that sometimes lurks in my head. The Grave Minions (not pictured--I'm working on it) will be with him and undercoated with Blue Liner. I could really use more Minions (perhaps even some worker-types). I think they're really a neat little concept. Anyway, these will be companions to The Necromancer. I'm betting that at least one will have a white pumpkin for a head, and will all have a blue glow (if I can manage it) in their heads. Vorvorlaka has received his Grey Liner. I'm thinking he will be either grey, or very pale. He might be "in limbo" for some time as I work that out. The Graveyard Golem was also subjected to Grey Liner. This one just jumped out at me as an incredible figure during the campaign. I thought it was one of the coolest things, even though I'm unlikely to ever use it. It's a little intimidating realizing just how much opportunity for color there is with the golem. It doesn't have to be all brown earth and grey stone. The Carrion Worm (also not pictured, hopefully this weekend) will also be hit with the Blue Liner. The current plan is to have something somewhere between a rather fleshy grub and a bloodworm (glycera).
  23. So I have been watching everyone's unboxing videos of their Kickstarter 3 stuff (i'll prolly do one of my core set when it comes in, off Ebay unfortunately but still super excited), and I have heard the hot irons (number 156 in the torture chamber series) twice now being called a Root Beer Float. I found this extremely amusing:)
  24. I think this is the best sculpt for an iron golem. As soon as I saw it I knew how I was going to paint it. I'm sure the inspiration is obvious. At first I had a nice fresh golem but it didn't seem right, so I needed to make it look like it was in a fight (most likely with a big green hulking creature).
  25. Just finished my first Bones 3 mini paint job from the core set - the Death Dog! I actually managed to finish it in an afternoon (which is pretty quick compared to my usual glacial speed). Thanks for looking!
