  1. ...and finishing it in 10 days or less. And you're all invited to come along for the ride. Audience participation is welcome and encouraged, just don't throw anything, please. (Unless it's money) While on the hangouts last night, I had an idea for a new project, and then started to laugh. When asked what was so funny, I said that I had just thought of a cool idea for a vignette for Reapercon, but it was too bad it's only a little over a week away. Some of the helpful folks there encouraged me to 'go for it'. I laughed. But I started thinking about it. Then I really started to think about it; I got out some stuff, and made a crude mock-up sketch. Then I thought about it some more. ....and now I think I'm going to do it. It's not like all of my other projects are already finished, right? Oh wait.... So, when I hobby, I usually have a couple different things going at one time, so that I can work on something else while i'm waiting for paint/glue/putty/whatever to dry. I was converting this fellow: http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Bones/latest/77408 when the idea hit me. So, what I'm thinking is a scene where the evil spell caster is summoning up some unholy thing from the pit for some evil shenanigans. Mock up: The big scary monster is not what I'm going to use; it's just a place holder. The summoning portal will be in the ground. What I'm thinking for the monster is that less is more; just an arm and top of the head, or some tentacles or something just starting to rise up out of the portal. What do you think? Also, here's the guy I converted: Since he was the chap that inspired this idea, I was going to use him as the star, (and I still might), but I was wondering if the calm pose works alright ( I imagine all the chanting, bloodletting and so on has concluded and he's just waiting for his minion to come forth ), or if a more action-y pose (arms spread, holding a staff/sword/something over the head, something like that) would be better. Well, what do you think?
  2. So, I got this pretty cool figure a few years ago at my first Reapercon. I don't think I've ever seen him painted up, so I figured I'd give it a shot, and I'll be bringing him to this year's 'con. The base on the figure was slightly miscast, so I removed it and attached the figure to an urban rubble base ('old factory' by Basicks). His pants are painted up in an WW2 German 'ambush pattern' camouflage scheme. Because I'm a glutton for punishment, I decided to try some freehand tattoos on him. I'm doing something vaguely reminiscent of the tribal tattoos that George Clooney's character had in From Dusk 'Till Dawn. In the movie the tats were on his left arm; I'm doing them on the right 'cause there's more room there. I also added a word tattooed onto the fingers of his left hand. ....and that's where I'm stuck. I know I need to try to do something to make 'em look they're under the skin, not just painted on top of it, but I'm not sure what/how to do it...I tried what I thought was a light wash; that ended up looking terrible. I ended up repainting his arm, it was that bad. (On the plus side, I think the second version of the tats looks better.) So please let me know what you think, and any advice would be great;y appreciated.
  3. I've got a bunch of these GW Chaos Space Marines taking up space, so I figured I'll paint one or 2 of them every once in a while. Kharne the Betrayer is a pretty interesting guy, so I'm going to work on him first. Early steps so far; I'm just working on his armor right now. Ignore the color on his arm; that's going to be going away soon. BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!!!!!!
  4. This is an old Ral Partha female fighter; she is part of a 2 figure set with a male figure dressed and armed in the same fashion. (He is still on the workbench awaiting a few finishing touches) I hope you like her.
  5. This is an old Ral Partha 3 stage character; high level Cleric. I've got both the low level, and mid level ones around here somewhere; I need to dig them out and paint them, too. My usual tabletop paint job, I hope you like it.
  6. Here is the first (of three) stalagmites from Bones 2. The other 2 are in progress and will get added to this thread when they are complete.
  7. Nothing terribly special, I had 2 sets of these, so I figured, I'd get them done.
  8. Here we have a collection of treasure markers made by various manufacturers ( I'm pretty sure the boots are Reaper, and I know the bags are ) that I've done up for Frostgrave.
  9. This is Reaper's very own lovable version of a monster from a fairly popular RPG. I painted this up to my usual tabletop level, let me know what you think, please.
  10. Welcome to the (rather late---sorry about that) 5th round of the Box of Goodwill! You may have heard about the fabled 'Box of Goodwill'. Maybe you were involved last time, maybe you're new and would like to see what it's all about. Well, you're in the right place!! Read on: This is the official, soon to be patented sign up thread for round 5. As before, please provide the following info in your replies to this thread: Where you live If you'd be willing to ship internationally (more expensive) If you want to be a box starter (depending on the amount of interest) There has been a minor rules clarification made. There is also a slight change. Even if you were involved in any of the previous versions, please make sure you read them carefully. Basically, put some stuff you don't want/will never get to/think other people will find cool into a box and send it to someone else. That recipient will take out whatever interests them, replace a like amount of stuff and ship it to the next person in line. And so on. The last person will send it back to a different coordinator ( the person who originally sent out one of the boxes ). What's allowed: 1)Any miniature 1a) this means any material, any genre, any manufacturer, any subject matter. If you put lead in, please label it somehow (separate baggy or whatever) 2)Anything mini related 2a) bases, basing material (please package this very securely, and label it), terrain, scenic bits, whatever. 3) Free stuff--leftover bits, drawings, etc. Please label these items as 'free' or 'giveaway'. If you want some of this stuff, take it, you don't have to match it. 3a)Please limit the amount of non-miniatures related items to whatever will fit into a standard sized Ziploc sandwich bag if it is bulky. Drawings/sketches take up next to no space at all and don't need to be stuffed into said baggy. 3a-1)Use common sense. Also, if you have some hand-crafted, custom-built shark skin and mithril dice bags or whatever that you're certain everyone will love, PM your coordinator and the folks in your circuit and see what everyone things of the idea. Majority rules. 4) Keep it reasonable; try not to put in anything larger than 54mm. That's gonna eat up a lot of space, and create a lot of 'what's it worth' questions. What's NOT allowed: 1)Paint/liquid 2)Perishable items 3)Exceptionally bulky, non miniature related items. Donate that 7th extra copy of the Player's Handbook to someone that you game with. How it works: A coordinator will put together a box of stuff and send it out to 8-10 people in his/her circuit. When you receive the box, take out whatever you like and replace it with a like amount of stuff.The value of what you replace should be equal to or slightly exceed whatever you take. We're gonna use the honor system here, so it's going to be somewhat subjective. Trades should be on a one-for-one basis, unless you're taking something big, in which case it's one-for-two. For example: If you see 4 orcs that you want, take them and replace them with 4 other roughly man-sized figures. If there's a larger figure (54mm ) that you want, take it, and replace it with either 1 similarly sized figure, or 2 man sized figures. Once you're finished, pack it up and send it to the next person in line. Here are some other specifics: 1)The coordinator will put together a box and start it on it's way. Each coordinator will pm me with the tracking info of the box as it sets out to the first recipient. After this, each recipient will pm the tracking number to their coordinator (the person who started the box) AND the person that they're shipping it to. 2)Participants will publicly announce when they have received the package (pictures would be cool, but aren't mandatory), and again when they send it off to the next person. For example: I received the box o' goodwill from Chaoswolf. When ready to ship, 'I'm sending the box to Pingo'. 2a)Participants will also be responsible for contacting the next person and getting their shipping information. The people involved in any given circuit will be public knowledge, so feel free to exchange shipping info how/whenever you wish. 3)Each participant will have 1 week from the arrival of the box to make their swaps and then send the box on to the next person. This is really important, we had several boxes sitting for several weeks with no movement in the last go around. 4) For participants in the USA, shipping will be via flat rate boxes. Tracking and insurance are included in the cost. In the event of loss, the person mailing the box will make the insurance claim and use the proceeds to purchase items to fill and ship a replacement box. 5) I'm anticipating roughly 3-4 months for each box to make a complete circuit (8-10 people x 1week per person + travel time). Once all boxes have completed the circuit (returned to the coordinator), we'll open up a new sign up thread and start the process over again if there's interest. Coordinators will need to pm me so I know that all circuits are complete. 6) This will be open to everyone. We have had several people express willingness to run/participate in a circuit for the newer members; I feel that this somewhat offsets any concerns about anyone's 'reliability'. Perhaps I'm a little naive, but the feeling I'm getting from both public posts and pm's is that everyone really seems to want this to work. Newer members are defined as anyone who hasn't been active on the boards for a year,or without at least one completed exchange. 7) Sign ups will end Midnight June 25th (east coast time). There will be a little wiggle room allowed here to allow for different time zones and whatnot. Once I get up the following morning, it's closed. I'll figure out how many people are involved, how many groups there are, who's going to coordinate and post that information in the first post of the chatter thread. 8) Individual coordinators are able to exercise a bit of leeway within their circuit. They will be setting up the initial package, so they can just stuff a box, or do a quick survey of everyone in their circuit to determine preferences. If they want to suggest everyone slap a color on Sir Forscale (or his designated representative), that's up to them. I'm thinking that the coordinators can run things pretty smoothly. If there's a question or concern, hit them up. Coordinators: if you're not sure how to proceed, hit me up and we'll work it out. 9) if something comes up and you need to drop out for whatever reason (life happens), please contact your coordinator as soon as possible so that he/she can make the necessary adjustments. 10)The group paint figure is not mandatory, just a little something extra for those who are so inclined. 11) Have fun! Ok, I'm pretty sure I've covered everything. If I missed something, or it's unclear, please bring it up in the chatter thread, or PM me. Don't add it here. Suggestions for a different 'group paint' figure and/or title can go in the chatter thread, too. ETA---I don't want to make any assumptions here. Even if you were in the other rounds, please indicate if you'd like to do round 5. Thanks
  11. I painted up the Bones 2 barrels yesterday.
  12. Another victim of my scenery/terrain binge; the bed from Bones 2.
  13. This is an old GW treasure chest I painted a while ago and based for use in Frostgrave and other games. It's assembled from the old Mordheim accessory sprue.
  14. Sligg soldier I painted up a few days ago. The base is from Secret Weapon.Tabletop work as usual,I hope you like him. I'm trying to work on my pictures more; which set looks the better, the first three, or the last two? Front Back Showing the base a little better
  15. I finished up the table and benches from Bones 2 the other day. Still playing with camera settings to try to get good pictures; the first one is closer to the actual color, the second one isn't as dark. Let me know what you think.
  16. I also painted the crates from Bones 2.
  17. This guy is part of the 'Jolly Monks' figure pack made by Foundry miniatures. He's the only one of the bunch that I have. Painted to table top, I hope you like him.
  18. Some of us that frequent the Google hang-outs (come check it out, it's quite fun) decided to try doing a 'mini of the month' based on discussion of this particular figure. We have continued doing this, but with Reaper figures since. This guy was the February mini. I'm not late getting him done, the other guys who already finished thiers are over achievers. Anyway, here he is, finally. Painted to at or maybe slightly above table top level. Please let me know what you think. And a couple close ups to prove I did his eyes.
  19. Someone else here had picked up a wooden log cabin kit from Hobby Lobby a while ago and posted it here. I picked one up myself the other day and started to work on it. This is the one I'm talking about. As you can see from the picture, it's not too terribly expensive. This is both good and bad. I'll get to that in a few minutes. This is the basic assembly; it took me about 20 minutes only because a few of the pieces needed to be trimmed a little bit for a good fit. Unfortunately, my kit was missing 2 pieces; there are supposed to be 2 'half logs' that go on the very bottom of the structure to start things off. I thought about going back and complaining, but for the price I paid, I figured it wasn't worth the gas I'd end up using to get there. Besides, this is only a minor challenge; improvise, adapt, and overcome! I'll hide the mistake when I get to the basing part. Since this is intended for use as a gaming piece, I deviated from the instructions and assembled the roof differently so that it would be detachable to put figures inside. I added some toothpicks for extra support/strength. And that's where I am right now.
  20. I finished this guy up on Friday; he's an old Ral Partha thief (if i remember correctly, he came in a 2 or 3 piece blister pack with some of his fellows; I'm pretty sure I've got them around here somewhere). My usual tabletop paintjob; I hope you like him. I'm still experimenting with my pictures; which version looks better?
  21. Welcome to the BoGW chatter thread for round 4! Did everyone like the way we did last round with coordinator 'a' shipping the box out, but having the circuit end with coordinator 'b'? Or would everyone rather go back to coordinator 'a' sending out a box and having it return to him/her at the end of the circuit? And here's the arrival/departure thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68383-the-travels-of-sir-forscale-and-friends-box-of-goodwill-round-4-arrivaldeparture-thread-no-chatter/ Also, if there are any questions,check the first post here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68158-box-of-goodwill-round-4-sign-up-thread-the-continuing-journey-of-sir-forescale-and-friends/ If that doesn't help, PM your box starter (the bold name at the top of the group that you are in), if they can't help you either, then contact Dilvish or myself.

  22. I bought a couple of the new Wizkids figures from my FLGS a week or two ago. They had the whole range, but I wasn't too terribly interested in most of the humanoid figures. The monsters were another story; I got this killer kitty cat and the Griffon. Something about this figure really grabbed me; it jumped straight to the #1 spot on my painting queue. This was a very fast figure to paint; my usual tabletop standard took me about 2 hours. I hope you like it .
  23. I've been on a bit of a Sci-Fi kick recently, so I'm going to be converting and painting up the Bones version of the Nova Corp troops. The original head on this guy has a horrible mold line, so I swapped it with a GW Dark Eldar. Nothing wrong with her head, I just don't like having a bunch of clones, so I'll be giving her a bare head. With new head (from GW Wood Elves). These are the same figure. The one on the left has the head from the female trooper added. The one on the right is the original head; as you can see the detail is lousy, so it got cut off. The head/helmet with the lousy detail from the guy above is now hanging on her belt. These guys have some extra equipment added. One of the guys from above is going to become a sniper. And his rifle, courtesy of a GW Tau. That's all for now, but I have a few more conversions to do before painting starts.
  24. In the cold wastes of the North, the followers of the gods of Chaos gather in their thousands. Hordes of barbaric marauders and armor-clad warriors pour forth from the bleak wastelands to wage war against the soft-bellied wastrels who inhabit the rich lands of the south. Daemonic legions advance with them, proof that the Northmen truly are the favored of the gods. ---taken from the Hordes of Chaos army book by Games Workshop. I've always really liked the aesthetic of GW's old Realm of Chaos range of figures ever since I first found some for sale in an old, off the beaten path (and sadly out of business now) hobby shop way back in my youth. I've been collecting them off and on through the years. (I wish I'd bought more of them when I was younger, they're all OOP and hard to come by now.) I've painted a few of them here and there, but now the time has come for me to start painting them in earnest as a cohesive ( relatively speaking; this is Chaos we're talking about here ) group. I might possibly game with them, which would be nice, but rule of cool is going to outweigh any possible gaming considerations in the assembly/painting of this army. I've got a pretty large collection of old school GW/Marauder/Citadel chaos figures (pics below), but I'm also going to be using figures by other manufacturers (including Reaper) that I think look cool and fit the feel of the army. This is going to be a fairly long running project; I've got A LOT of dudes to paint. I hope you see something that sparks your interest and decide to follow along. I have a few units that I've already finished and posted previously; a unit of Chaos Knights of Khorne: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59177-gw-chaos-knights-of-khorne/?hl=%2Bkhorne+%2Bknights A unit of Chaos warriors of Nurgle: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59534-gw-chaos-warriors-of-nurgle/?hl=%2Bnurgle+%2Bwarriors And a few single figures: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65997-chronopia-elven-axeman/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66394-77065-norgol-irongrave-knight/ And here's (some of) what I'm working with: I also have at least that many Beastmen that I haven't found/unburied yet, and some daemons as well. If you noticed some of the newer plastic Chaos Warriors at the top of some of the pictures don't expect to see very many of them in here; I don't like 'em. The detail is beautiful on them, but they're a little too static and mono-pose for my liking. The older stuff has more character in my opinion.
  25. I think this is an old Citadel barbarian figure that I finished last night. He was actually a 'paint catcher' ( an old/broken figure I keep around to test paint ideas on ) for a while that I decided to actually finish off. He's a little rough, I did him in a couple hours to get myself back into painting after a few weeks of nothing. I hope you like him, he'll be serving as a thug in one of my Frostgrave warbands. I'm also not positive on the manufacturer; please let me know if I'm wrong and I'll correct the post.
