  1. So, here is the second Reaper Bones that I have painted to completion. The only other one was a Chibi Mummy which I thought was a fun figure. So I'm not going to lie, I'm not super fond of the Bones material, I much prefer metal, but Gene Van Horne did such a beautiful job on this sculpt, I really wanted to paint it. Also, as has been mentioned so many times with Bones, with a larger figure, the detail seems to come out a lot better than with small pieces. With this figure, there was so much detail in her armor, with the metal, and strings and such, afraid I probably didn't hit it all, but did what I could. So here she is, hope you enjoy!
  2. I'm working up some modern adventurers. I've always rather liked the sort of British modness of this figure. For Bones, I prime with some thinned-down Reaper Brown Liner, which both shows details and gives a paint-friendly surface for later layers to grip. All paints used (after the primer) are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios. Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated. Usually I rough in the skin first. This is pretty rough. It's a simple mix of Titanium White and Burnt Sienna, with a bit of pink mixed from Titanium White and Red Oxide. I left the eye socket with the primer showing. This figure kind of wants to be colored 1960's-style, with very dramatic eye makeup and almost invisible lips, but I think I will try something different.
  3. This figure is kind of silly but I like him anyway. He came from one of the Bones Kickstarters and I felt like painting him up. There isn't a WIP thread, but I welcome comments and questions, if anyone has any.
  4. I love painting zombies. So forgiving
  5. I'm running a goofy D&D adventure where the party members will interact and fight with a bunch of NPC's and monsters based on cereal mascots. This surly fellow is a disgraced military sailor turned berry and peanut butter merchant known as Captain Crunch. I'm working on Clay Golem 77170 as Frankenberry, Vampire 77282 as Count Chocula, Werewolf 77464 as the Cookie Crisp Wolf, and a host of specters to be an army of Booberries. I'll be looking out for a cool leprechaun to eventually introduce as Lucky from Lucky Charms, as well as some halfling wizards to be Snap, Crackle, and Pop. Overall, Captain Crunch turned out pretty decent. Some touch ups will probably happen in the future, but I was really happy with how the blue and gold color scheme looked on the fig. The beads/jewels in the beard are far too light currently, so I will probably go over them again next weekend. They are currently a bright gold, but I wouldn't be opposed to changing colors completely. Critiques and advice are always welcome. Thanks in advance!
  6. Made him a duergar- cause I love the Underdark.
  7. This is the Ogre Smasher from Bones 3. I think all of the ogres from Bones 3 are awesome sculpts! This guy has a "hand" bag and likes to go clubbing.
  8. With my bride away on a work trip this week, I decided to try to squeeze in a kinda big project... and after dithering about what it should be, I settled on painting one of my many Bones dragons. Blightfang was actually a main antagonist in a D&D campaign I ran a while back... so that's the one I decided to paint! Tonight was spent scrubbing him down, after he'd spent the day soaking in soapy water. I partly glued him together, and then got painting with Green Liner. I'm only partly assembling him, so that I can more easily access the harder to reach spots. Also the back legs don't fit well into the base he came with, so I'm thinking that I might need to make my own out of cork... And this was supposed to be a quick project... we'll see how I do.
  9. So I'm going to be starting a dwarven reclamation campaign in the fall, and I had 2 copies of the Dwarf butcher. I though it would be perfect to do one as a living butcher (who I can also use as an NPC townie) and his barbarian ancestor spirit that I can put on the table when he's a ragin'. So far the living butcher is mostly done (need to do his base and some touchups - I don't know how all of you are doing the eyes, because I can't see them even with a visor), and the ghostly ancestor is mostly done minus the ghostly glow I'll be drybrushing later. I do have a few process pics to post.
  10. This idea is stolen (with permission) from @OneBoot. Last year she took a Bones Hydra and put wings on it to paint as a mock up for her own Ma'al Drakkar. It was most fun to watch. Husband loved the idea so much that he had to have one with traditional Tiamat colors to match our Ma'al when I get to painting him. Here is her original WIP: This is my first conversion and will be my first dip into the world of sculpting green stuff. Which I'll need to do to make it look like there are scales around the wings instead of just, well, blobs of green stuff. Okay, that's enough of an intro post so let's get too it. ETA: Sorry in advance in the pictures are big.
  11. I painted this guy today for an upcoming encounter. This figure was a lot of fun.

    77194: Cthulhu

    My first post here, Been lurking for a bit and decided it was time to share some of my work. So here's my latest completed project. I'd love to hear what people think. If you're interested I have more detailed shots Here
  13. I painted another little mouseling druid. I went with a darker, grumpier scheme with this one. I love painting the mouselings!
  14. I grabbed this guy out of the bag of Bones and couldn't tell what it was without my glasses. All I could tell was that it was a big muscley guy, and I thought it would make a good earth golem to go with the stone golem I was painting. So I put primer on it, and was a little surprised when I put on my glasses to paint it. Whatever. A little flock covered all the obvious scars and stitches. I'm very happy with it.

    77379: Dracolisk

    I took the dragon challenge last year and chose this figure. Midway into the painting my vision changed entirely. I still used the 3 chosen colors, but in a different way. Very happy with how it came out. Found the perfect base in my Bag of Crap, too. Sorry, camera lighting is not good. He is not so muddy looking in person.
  16. Recently finished this for @Kangaroorex had a lot of fun playing with the spring theme and a monster. Also first time I've tried to build a flower (wire with paper wrapping for leaves, heavier paper for flower itself, and magicsculpt for some of the other details). Mama Werecroc with baby Croc, watering a swampflower.
  17. Starting to get into the slush pile of random fantasy monsters from KS1.
  18. It's hard to figure out some of the details on the Bones version, but I think I did ok.
  19. So I started painting this guy... I don't even remember how long ago. Pulled him out tonight and decided to wash him with a couple other bones I was prepping... He felt a little tacky... And now feels worse. And the tooth brush feels all gummy. He's from Bones 1, and probably painted with older GW paints, not not 100% sure. Fairly sure I'm just going to drop him in some simple green and start over... Though I'm wondering if there has been some weird chemical change and if I'd just be better off getting a new copy of him? Anyone else run into something like this? I know some paint dries tacky on bones, but can that be cleaned off and repainted?
  20. 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.
  21. Another quickie for practice, comments and criticism welcome: I wanted to try painting white cloth, specifically on the ruffles. Circumstances dictated that this become grayish ruffles, as often happens, so her shirt became gray as well (on purpose). It pairs well with the blue at least. The highlights in her dress turned out fantastic! And then were accidentally wrecked due to a mixup of blues. I salvaged what I could. Never really tried black hair with highlights before, not sure it came out right. The only black I have is Black Ink, and used some Breonne Blue to highlight. Didn’t spend a lot of time on it though. Still can’t do eyes right, but I like the way her lips and jewelry turned out. It’s not really visible in these shots, but I managed to dot her necklace quite well (for me). Never came up with anything interesting for the shoe, however. Base is Ginger Cookie (and probably not quite dry). I like this sculpt, but there are mold lines something fierce. I got many, but am far too chicken to attempt more. A dollar store craft knife is woefully inadequate to the task.
  22. One thing I love about this model: the jewelry. This sphinx has been hanging out guarding the pyramid for a really long time, but every day she gets up and accessorizes. :-)
  23. Greetings, We don't normally post on this forum (too intimidated), but Niall did a weapon swap on this one using a staff from the Bones Armoury of Virtue set. Any feedback would be gratefully received! Stephaniall
  24. Painted during the last weekend's 24 hour challenge. Lately I have been trying to get through all my townspeople. The last bar wench I painted was the very standard Bavarian beer serving wench with an attempt at glass beer mugs. Posted above since I hadn't ever put her in show-off. So this time wanted to go a bit different. Went with pewter mugs instead (was debating coffee but decided this was more standard fantasy fare). And next up over the 24 hour painting challenge weekend was the mother with children. I guess this never got produced at retail? I'm sort of not surprised given the moms are a little noseless. Also their eyes are a bit tricky since their bangs are hanging so low on their faces. Anyways, thanks for reading! Comments and criticism always appreciated.
  25. well, he finally made it out of the house! My exchange is officially in the mail. My exchange partner had asked for something futuristic and something either goofy or scary, so of course I went with ludicrous. What do you give the giant demonic poisonous spider that has it all? high tech lasers and missile launchers! I have been building and painting some of my eldar pieces and decided that they could use a mascot. As for things I haven't done in a while. I have started to play with decals again as a way of adding some interest to my larger grav tanks and space ships so I thought I would add a few here for fun. The weapons pack is removable if my partner wants to use him as a basic giant spider (actually I got a few complaints from the arachnid union when we discussed permanent attachment...) there are to pointy pins that attach the weapons pack to the back of the spider (bones material does have its uses. So here is the Mark I demonic assault spider. I hope everyone enjoys him!
