  1. 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.
  2. 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).
  3. 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!
  4. Standing stones are done. Almost ready for the game table. The Cthulhu statue isn't finished I just put it in there to get an idea of the encounter I'm building. I will be adding to this thread when Ive finished up the two statues and the altar. Edit 7-16-2017 Mythos terrain Statue of the thing that should not be. Minithuhlu Statue Altar
  5. Here is my next project. Shouldn't take too long since I wont need that many colors. I wont be gluing this one together as I want to be able to disassemble the standing stones for storage. With that in mind...I'm debating whether I should use any static grass on them or not...decisions decisions So far I've partly primed lil-thulhu. I'm going to find out if this new grey bones takes paint like the white bones.
  6. I've started painting my large army of bones ogres. Since my orcs are rust coloured I decided to try making ogres green, I'm pretty happy with the result.
  7. Lets start with the cultists. Dark Young Dark young and his lunch...
  8. Pic heavy I did thrown in that pathfinder cloaked person into the mix but I cant remember their name. Also the one with the cane has since be...ahem...altered muhahahah
  9. The following is going to be an EXPERIMENT! Please do try this at home, because I'm not a licensed professional and totally feel no obligation to warn you away from doing awesome things. My goal is to complete these 5 figures, from start to finish, within 48 hours. Whether I will succeed or not remains to be seen. It's more of a "Hey, let's see if I can paint humanoid figures quickly," and I work best with a deadline, artificial or not. Here are my 5 victims: 89009 Merisiel, Iconic Rogue (Tipsy) 89024 Holy Vindicator (Trunk SlamChest) 77480 Durok, Dwarf Ranger (Balin) 77440 Masumi, Demon Hunter (Tsunami) 77320 Galadanoth, Elf Sniper (Elrohir) Group shot: That's totally not DDS2 in the background, I don't know what you're talking about. Pay no attention to that at all, totally not relevant. So, I'll make this post my timestamp (12:00 PM PST), and away we go! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  10. My 1st two minis from Bones 3, very basic paint jobs nothing fancy.
  11. This past week I painted Jurden, Half-Orc Paladin, from the Bones 3 Heroes I Set. I did a weapon swap on him with the new Bones 3 clear weapons, just to experiment. He looked like the kind of senior-ranked, wealthy, individual who could be wielding a magic crystal sword. In looking at this figure, there wasn't anything particularly orc-ish about it, so I decided to just paint it as a regular human. Full painting article on my blog: Jurden
  12. So decided to do a quick experiment. I really wanted there to be actual fluid in my brain in a jar. So I decided to test out Vallejo Still water mixed with transparent blue paint. What I didn't think about was the fact that its air tight in there...so the Still water will never cure....Sooo....oops It could cure I don't know but it might takes days....months...or even years...I also used as little paint as possible and it ended up a bit less translucent that I would have liked but that's ok.
  13. As the shipwreck golem is almost finished I thought I would move on to the brain. It has quiet a footprint so I went with a large base with an apocalyptic feel so here's what I got so far. Vinyl tile is wonderous for road sections
  14. So this one is not my best work. It was very frustrating to paint. I recommend painting before assembly but that will only help marginally. Still debating on whether to put it on a base or not.. I likely wont...
  15. i speed paint for gaming but I like these minis! Fun and gets creative gaming juices flowing to paint!
  16. Another speed job to play some 3.5 Oriental adeventues with the kiddos
  17. For anyone else who has this mini, does the spear arm curve away from the body? At first I thought it was just due to it conforming to the bag from shipping, but it's resisted my efforts to heat and straighten it and its made me wonder if that's the way it was intended to be. It's not a hard curve, I just assumed that the spear would be straight or curved inward like the cannon arm is.
  18. Now that I've finished the Frost Giants I'm moving onto something a bit warmer, Fire Giants. Currently I've boiled, primed, and base coated skin on all 5. Several will probably need an additional skin coat but so far so good. Pictures in spoiler.
  19. Next up to play is the Manticor. I found a pic that I think I will use as inspiration My work so far Just primer coats. Used grey liner for the rock and brown liner for the Manticor On a side note anyone tell me what this is? It will likely be my next victim.
  20. Earlier this week I got my hands on a set of bones 3 mythos cultists. I'm not really that into cthulhu, but I do love a crazy looking cult. So I went with purple robes with bronze weapons, and painted the faces as masks. Not really sure if they were meant to be masks, but I think it worked.
  21. I needed a peacekeeper (think paramilitary wasteland cops) in a suit of powered armor holding a blast hammer for my warband in the post apocalyptic skirmish game "this is not a test". The corsair was a good fit so I used the warhammer from one of the weapon sprues and Wild West Sophie's sheriffs star base as a shield, the head is an alternate from a peacekeeper mini. Lots of fun to paint the corsairs are great minis. Hope you like him ;)
  22. My first transparent mini: I wanted to try painting one of the new invisible heroes from Bones III the other day. This is super simple paint job where I first painted the base, then masked it with a solid coat of Brown Liner for opacity. After that, I quickly painted the wizard with a single coat of a mixture of: 3 drops RMS Gloss Sealer 2 drops RMS Flow Improver 1 drop RMS Wash Medium 1 drop Liquitex Phthalo Blue After waiting a day (I was worried the ink might leach out of the sealer or something if I tried to work with it too soon), I painted the exterior of the base with Rainy Gray, followed by a coat of Brown Liner magic wash. To finish, I sealed the entire figure with a coat of Gloss Sealer, followed by a second coat of Gloss on the wizard and a coat of Brush-on Sealer on the base. The result was a very blue, almost candy-like mini. I'm happy with the result, but I'm thinking of pushing back the ink next time by at least half to get a lighter tint. The wash went on pretty well, but I might also try increasing the viscosity just a bit by upping the ratio of Gloss Sealer. Overall, a fun and easy paint job.

    Goremaw (Bones 3)

    So, not having painted for a year or so, I was happy to have an excuse with the arrival of Bones 3 to get back into it. After a brief warm-up/practice run on a female cleric-figure, I had a go at Goremaw, whom I decided to do as a fiendish purple worm (purple hues, tinged with red). I love the sculpt and am decently satisfied with how it came out.
  24. Posted this on FB but wanted to share it here with those that do not do the social thing. My 7 year old daughter worked on this today while I messed with my LTPK 1 a bit more so I can try to finish it up.
