  1. Next up to bat, a selection of the denizens of Dreadmere, from Reaper Miniatures: Bones 4
  2. Here's another set intended for Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago. I tried to do up the Bloodstone Gnomes as Tribals, as one of the Tribal traits is Pygmy and their armor seemed that fantasy MesoAmericana
  3. I needed a nothic so I made one! I used the mortar gargoyle, cut off the wings, used paperclips and greenstuff to make the spikes, and greenstuff to redo his face and eye. He's a little goofy looking but I kind of like him! Maybe we'll get a real nothic in Bones 5!
  4. Hello forum, wanna share with you my last paint: the bone version of Angel of protection; this mini lacks a lot of details, both faces are blooby , so I've chose to speedpaint her, then I'll buy the metal version as I really like the sculpt and I want to give her justice! :P As you can see not a perfect job, there are also some paint spots on the wings... but whatever... Hope you like her anyway, c&c welcome as always! Thanks :)
  5. Like Howard the Duck, but with a katana. And armor, and a scarf, and... okay, not at all like Howard the Duck.

    Flail Snail

    This mini made the difference on whether I was going to go for the Fan Favorites expansion. For some reason, I really liked the original Flail Snail in the MM. Never actually used (or encountered) one in a game, but the concept is so out there that I had to love it. This one I had trouble getting the shell to look organic. I tried a lot of different colors and treatments (most of which resulted in the shell spending time in the Simple Green...). Could have been the color choices, I guess?

    Red Croaker

    After battling a few of these in an expedition to the nether planes, I figured I should paint at least one of them...
  8. GodOfCheese

    Bug Battler

    I love this guy's pose, and doing his eyes was really fun. I'm conflicted about the base though... the figure seems stable enough, but the base seems too plain. Suggestions welcome!
  9. This is a Bones Crystal Golem I've painted (just a few inks and quick drybrush) to be used as a proxy for "Ice" character in Rumbleslam games.
  10. Here is my Reaper Bones Ogre Guard, 77456. It took a long time to finish the skin. I had a hard time getting it right with dry brushing layer upon layer and several washes, but I like the way it turned out.
  11. In a post Bones IV world there are lot more translucent miniatures in circulation. You may have had the same reaction I had, where I thought they were neat, but had no idea what to do with these things. Well, today was the day I decided I was going to try a few different experiments with painting these things to see what would happen. I did try an experiment once before with some purple translucent modes from bones 3, where I put a black wash over them. I was not happy with those results. They turned out looking opaque black with purple highlights from a distance, and translucent against a light or if you looked real close. Not a strong enough effect for table play. So this time, I did a bunch of research (mostly on this forum) and was told about using a clear coat and ink to add definition and maintain translucency. Looked good in the pictures, so I thought I would try some variations on that. First thing I wanted to experiment with was testing something I read here that said something to the effect of "the clear coat actually makes them more translucent, because it changes how they reflect light" so I thought I would try a matte clear coat and a gloss clear coat and see how they compared. The following are a very light black ink wash (from the Reaper Ink triad) and then Tamiya X-22 gloss clear (on the left) and Tamiya XF86 gloss matte (on the right). These models were not very translucent to begin with, but both coats did really make them appear more clear. The gloss was very shiny, had a distinctive wet look, and makes the model look like a clear piece of hard candy. The matte coated model appears to let about the same amount of light through, but is less reflective than it was before I coated with anything. With less reflection the model looks a little less ethereal, but also less like a plastic toy. I decided that I didn't want wet looking spirits, so I decided to go with a black ink wash and the matte coat. Here are those results: Much better than my last attempt, which were only transparent when held against a light. They are still reflective, but less than out of the box. I also tried a red ink instead and it had a very striking effect of red against the blue (the colors didn't blend at all like I thought they would) but it wasn't what I was looking for, so I washed it off. Here is a comparison of a painted and unpainted model: So really, I would say not painting them at all is totally viable. I like having the details show, but if they are ghosts, maybe it is okay that it is hard to see without taking a very close look. I also did a matte coat on some crystals (no ink) and it improved the translucency greatly, though it is hard to capture in a photograph. I learned I prefer that matte coat to clear, (but both are cool). Inks work well, where standard acrylics did not last time. Clear coats do make them more clear. and they transparent models look ghostly and cool already, so painting them isn't giving you that much really, if they are only intended for table play. maybe this information will be useful to someone. I wish I could have found it all in one place when I was puzzling over what to do and what to purchase.
  12. I would like to try airbrushing different sets of skin tones onto multiple copies (5+) of the same female figure as practice and as a reference for other models. Anyone recommend a Bones fig that is large enough to have quite a bit of exposed skin, but cheap enough that lots of copies wouldn't set me back too much. Yaphima (sure I spelled it wrong) the Frost giant comes to mind first, but looking for other options
  13. Good day everyone, here is my take at 89031, Tar-Baphon the Whispering Tyrant sculpted by Bobby Jackson. The 77531, Graveyard Fence Posts are also fron Reaper and were sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.
  14. Hello forum family, wanna show you just a bunch of speed paints; want to paint every bone I have before make another order, but if I paint everything in my usual way I will probably die before sooooooo... Speedpaint mode /on. No more than 2 hour per model, less if possible. Here the links for nudity: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1iqoCwXYMid6Dh7SwMCTOLAIzJtCvIBfH https://drive.google.com/open?id=12K4Pa_kVqK2PN6SD958IwmAxriq4PW8n https://drive.google.com/open?id=1L-h70djLTRJJhCHjsITsrvJpGr8crstM And that's all for now, I have to keep paint, see you later C&C welcome as always, thanks for watching .
  15. A year ago I painted my first minis for D&D. It's not my best work, but it's most definitely an upgrade!
  16. Here is a lizard man I painted recently. I actually finished him a while ago but I didn't post him because there was someone else's posted that day that was much better than mine and I was embarrassed . So here he is now. I am quite happy with the color on his chest. I didn't want him to have a straight yellow chest because that would look too contrasty and cartoony so I used some yellow in a glaze medium and put it on. It was kind of chalky so I need to be looking at getting different yellow paint. The close pics show the flaws and chalkiness but from a foot and a half away it looks amazing to me. The underside of the tail is still straight yellow basecoat because I was getting lazy. I am quite happy with him and please let me know what you think!
  17. I've been trying to do a bit of painting every day, since RCon is coming up so soon. I have a problem with long-term projects, though, so I need to occasionally work on something quick and sweet in between. Sometimes I need to finish something to keep me motivated, you know? Tonight's lucky candidate was this bear, whom I love. His name is Randall and he likes standing in fields. Anyhow, enjoy!
  18. This is my most ambitious attempt to date. A mini-campaign I’m running some people through calls for many kobolds of varying colors and classes. I had 12 Kobolds from Bones I, the 4 pack in metal that those were based off of (03064), the metal Leader and Sorcerer (03024), the 12 awesome new kobolds from Bones 4, and a 7 pack (I may have gotten a freebie, I thought I bought a six pack) of kobolds from the Ral Partha TSR Official D&D 2nd Edition line, stamped 1989. That’s a whopping 37 figures. I want to paint tribes from all 5 chromatic factions, and want to have as few duplicate poses per faction possible. The Ral Partha kobolds have a more simian or canine face compared to the more reptilian face of the Reaper models, but I’m still going to fold those into each faction. The Adventure calls out a Cleric (Red) a Ranger, (Green) and a Sorcerer (Green). Those are the only ones with specific art, and I have models representative of each present without need for modification. Also, I am not planning to add to the bases at all. And I want to finish all of this in about a month (unlikely)! Wish me luck!
  19. Found this girl i painted up about a year ago using reaper paints from bones KS 2 and 3, the sword hand is from a gw mini the sword is brass etch, C&C welcome t know the eyes are badly done
  20. I'm working up the nerve to start the larger mushroom characters from the darkreach expansion with this little guy. I really wanted to see what a bright colour scheme would do for the figures, playing on the idea of a brightly posionous mushroom. This is the result.

    Altar and Crypt

    Oddly these are the first two models I painted up from Bones 4. It just sorta happened. Added a bit of 'stuff' to the altar, the books alone seemed a bit empty.
  22. This figure is next on the agenda. I cleaned up mold lines, cut off the “base” part of his integral base, washed him and mounted him on a Reaper 1 inch base.
  23. Tabletop cultists for my dnd game. I wanted them to have a look that I could either use to be sinister and evil, or even 'good' cultists that have gone too far...the leaders feature red and blue while their subordinates feature green and blue. I chose to do metallic masks of varying metal types and shades. My goal was to work on the speed at which I paint things like NMM so that I can get results without agonizing as I might for a competition piece.
  24. Hello forum family, want to share to you my last work: Lou AKA chibi-Cthulhu Tried a purple contrast on him, the outcome is pretty nice, I think. The base is made sclupting some clay balls and cutting it in half to make the acid bubbles painted with fluo colors from Vallejo; then I've sculpted some tentacles and added to the base to make it more dramatic. A coat of glossy sealer and I call it done. Hope you like it: As always every comment, advice and criticism is super welcom!
  25. This was the must-have from Bones 4 for me! I cut off and modded the legs and created the base with apoxie sculpt so the hut can be placed on its own or on the legs. The paint scheme is "chicken" ;) I can't even remember all the colors I used on this thing, it was a mad mix of Reaper browns and golds, Pokorny terracotta, homemade washes, and I pretty much just kept going at it until I was happy. I hit everything with a matte varnish except several coats of gloss varnish on the window glass.
