  1. Finished this miniature today for my Wrath of the Righteous campaign. Part of a LOT of demons. He has more slime on his base then the picture brings out, but he was fun to paint and actually sorta quick due to some airbrush work. 7377: Toad Demon on the Reaper store
  2. This thread is shamelessly ripping off a wonderful idea from our goblin friend @buglips*the*goblin from this thread way back around Bones KS1 days. The intent of this thread is to have lots of people post WIP shots of their Bones Sophie paint jobs. Here are the minis to pick from (SKUs to be updated here soon): From Left to Right: KS2 Trollslayer Sophie 77370, KS3 Sophie the Sage 77491, KS4 Innkeeper Sophie, KS4 Small World Sophie, Sir Forscale (Note that Sir Forscale is just that, for scale. He is not part of this for WIP purposes.) There is no time limit or set starting date. If you come across this thread long after I have posted it and want to join, feel free. Quick ground rules: 1. Only Bones Sophie is allowed. There are four of them (unless I somehow missed one). 2. Try to limit yourself to a few posts a day, though. No reason to flood this thread too much. (Unless this doesn't pick up interest and it is just me, lol). 3. Watch the side conversations. Ideally this is primarily WIP pics and some direct conversation to help encourage or guide the painters. 4. If this picks up lots of interest, we will use one Show Off thread as to not overwhelm that thread too badly. 5. Play nice. This is meant to encourage people to paint. I am hoping we get painters of all levels of ability. Encourage people to join in. The more the merrier. Feel free to PM me with questions or concerns. I will try to update this thread with any clarifications or whatnot. Alright, now let's get this party started!
  3. The challenge complete! I present Kai, the Strawberry Dragon! Thank you all for the challenge and the feedback!
  4. Waiting for my Bones 4 to show up... Barnabas is representing a sea dwarf ship captain played by one of my DND players. His trident was forged by Poseidon from the deepest coral; it is harder than adamantine armor.
  5. I got two Efreetis in my recent Reaper order. Out of the two one had far more gap lines than the other, so I opened the one that would take less effort to work on first since it's been awhile since I have properly tinkered with a mini. First thing's first, gap filling! This model had quite a lot of mold lines too, I dealt with most of them with an xacto knife and a file. The Bones Black material is brittle enough to handle a file if you're careful unlike the white Bones counterpart. While priming I noticed that part of one of her horns was missing, must have snapped off during shipping or during my work on her. Touched it back up with some more green stuff, just waiting for it to cure before I prime over it. In the mean time, there is nothing stopping me from popping into Procreate to play around with a colour scheme. I wanted to try something a but different than other painting examples I had seen. Still incorporating the red and gold, just in different ways.
  6. I have begun the best thing I can think of for myself to get through my Bones I stockpile. I went to the Kickstarter page, took screenshots of the reward pictures, and am using it as a checklist. I’ll be shooting for tabletop+. First up is Cassie, gnome wizard. Mold lines addressed, cleaned, and on a rudimentary base. Primed with Brown Liner. Flesh tone base is Rosy Shadow. Then working on eyes. Nightshade Purple and Linen White so far. And that’s all I got done today.
  7. My wife bought me most of the IMEF minis as a gift summertim some time back. I just need one more(not counting the Bulldog in Bones 4) and I'm planning to paint them all at once...but it makes sense to have one done as a test piece. Sure. That's my story. Also with him is a papercraft APC, because of course these guys will need armored support!
  8. Rembrant van Rjin 1606-1669 One of the most famous of the Old masters. I decided to try and replicate his middle period. The largest change I made was using a limited palette, and mixing all the colors I used. Many teachers have recommended this style and it finally sunk in USE MORE PAINT ON THE PALLET. Mix a shade and higlight version of your main color. have it all right there, in large quantities. I tried for smooth blends but got carried away by the speed of this style on the archer. The club wielder has better results. Each Lizardman uses only: Russet brown, chestnut brown, Palamino gold, and carnage red - 4 color palette + B&W (there was also a few drops of green ink for the shield) I also tried to use light to create a different emotion for the lizardmen - with mixed success. still, this experiment has changed my style for the better.

  9. Just finished painting a copy of the Bones version of Satheras using two hues plus black and white: I started him during our last paint day as an example of how you could use a single brown to get quite a few different looks. After I got home, I decided to keep on with a very limited palette. Paints used (all Golden Fluid Acrylics): Burnt Sienna Dioxazine Purple Zinc White Carbon Black Not intended as a competition mini, but it was a really interesting exercise and the result, I think, has some virtue as a piece of art.

    77352: Demi-Lich

    Painted up the demi-lich from the Bones line. He is rather small. Decided against any OSL, it would just drown out the skull.

    77326: Lemures

    I painted up two lemures from the Bones line. I tried to closely match the colorscheme I have used to paint some lemures from otherworld miniatures. I am pleased with the results. (Scroll down for family picture!) They were pretty tough to paint, for they did not have a lot of texture to them. Earlier Bones and all that. Still fun to do. :)
  12. Hello all! @Echoside_ challenged me to do this! I attached the colors that were rolled and a pic of the dragon lined. Sorry for the short post, but it serves purposes. Cheers! -Z
  13. The second gnoll I painted with inspiration from the gnolls of World of Warcraft. This is the Bones Toghra.
  14. I have very fond memories of gnolls from playing World of Warcraft. I don't know why I enjoyed them so much but I did. So when I pulled out these gnolls to paint, I knew I was going to paint them like World of Warcraft gnolls. This is the Bones Blacktongue gnoll.
  15. The Bones Giant Cobra. I saw a lot of neat ones painted with stripes and different patterns but decided to go simple with mine. I did drybrush highlights with some bronze and copper to give him a little shimmer and he looks really good on the table. My players are worried because they fought a giant snake last session (I didn't have him painted) so they are worried there is another one coming. You never know!

    Dire Bear - 77494

    This is the Bones dire bear. I have been painting some stuff for D&D. Nothing in particular, just things that might be useful. I figured a bear, dire or otherwise might come in handy and he was quick and easy to paint!
  17. I recently finished painting Borin Ironbrow! I started out just wanting to paint a simple dwarf. I recently discovered and really liked the blue/green color of the cloak so that's where I started. I then did most of the cloak and NMM and then got to the shield and I didn't know what to do. Someone suggested painting it copper/bronze/... so I thought why not do SENMM copper!?!? This is the result! I hope you like it!
  18. I, Echoside, will be undergoing this awesome challenge as my Dragon and paints have arrived from Denton. I have chosen the victim of Kyphrixis, The Copper Dragon for this 3-star challenge. Will be using green and red liner to prime. My rolls: So after his bath, it was picture time! I think he will end up being a Strawberry Dragon! First off, I sorry for the Cut/Paste first post, but it was fitting. Secondly, Kai (the moniker I've given to him) got himself primed up and ready for more layers while out at a miniature painting event at a local gaming store. Such a splendid way to start the challenge. I bathed the base unit in Sepia Liner, as I don't believe the base was to be done strictly in the color scheme of the dragons. Kai himself was bathed in the Red liner, which is very purple if you ask my eyes. The wing membranes were done in the Green Liner. I'm hoping for some interesting undershading effects once the 3 primary colors start to roll on. I've blocked out in my head what scales are going to be which shades and such, I'm just hoping I have the skills to bring whats in my head out on the dragon himself. But without further ado, picture time!
  19. This one is not my work, but my wife's first rpg mini ever. She put a huge amount of work in and is really proud of her. The shine is because the day it was finished, my dullcoat decided to be a berk and refused to actually be matte.
  20. The bugbears that came in Bones 3 (the 4 identical ones) all had really floppy maces. Last night I decided to do something about that. One got a plastic ax from the weapons sprues, while the other is getting a spear based on a bamboo skewer. I'll be adding a proper spear to the tip of the skewer made out of greenstuff, but I need to make it first.
  21. There are some minis that are absolutely brilliant in Bones. This is not one of them. But it's a mini that works for a fellow players for our Curse of Strahd campaign, so... First problem, the staff was really bent out of shape. Impressive since it's connected to both his hand and the cloak. A quick boil and then ice bath to care of that. Then there were three mold lines. Unfortunately extensive on the outstretched arm and on the smooth cloak. Once those were taken care of, I glued him to a base, splashed on the brown liner and then began to block in colors. Afterburn Grey, peacock green, tanned shadow, and dessert stone were the primary colors I used to start with. That was last week, and it was enough to get the okay from my player. So tonight, I worked on him some more. Added Rosy flesh, nut brown, some black lining, and Marigold for the hair. I think I'm going to wash the hair with something a little more orange red, then bring up the color more with the blond triad. Not sure what to do with the leather bandoleer, but I'm thinking maybe a red leather?
  22. Sorry for being away from the Forum for so long. So ... how does one pronounce "peryton"? I've usually said it like "keratin" (stress on the first syllable), but I suppose it could rhyme with "enlighten" (stress on the second syllable) instead. I realized only weeks ago that I had been mispronouncing "wyvern" all my life, and the first syllable is long like "five", not short like "shiv". Anyway... I taught a class called "Fur, Feathers, and Scales" class at ReaperCon 2018. I used the Bones peryton as a demonstration, because of the big feathered wings. The first-edition Monster Manual gives the coloration of a peryton as blue-black head, black horns, green wings, and blue chest (male) or drab chest (female). I showed my students pictures of real hawks and falcons, most of which have dark tips on their wing feathers, and sometimes a series of dark stripes. Then I painted one of the peryton's wings to have stripes like that (black on green). Now I've decided to paint the whole figure, to at least a good tabletop standard. I attached it to a 50mm round base, sculpted some extra rocks, and sculpted the skeleton of a past victim (a Reaper pewter skull, plus bones made from putty). Perytons bite the hearts out of their prey, so I made the skeleton's ribcage open/broken in front. Here's how my version looked after I spent 2 hours slapping on Black Brush-on Primer and White Brush-on Primer, to establish the overall values. The primer didn't fully cover the striped green wing from my ReaperCon class. Enjoy, Derek
  23. Hello, this is my first post on the reaper forums. I wanted to share my most recently painted miniature, the Ogre Guard sculpted by Bobby Jackson. The base is made out of a 74036: 2" Round Base, some apoxie sculpt for the rocks, green flocking and some army painter grass tufts. I picked this figure because while he is intimidating, he hasn't started attacking yet. This monster fits the look of both wild beast or gentle giant.
