  1. This is just an old ghast from Bones 1 that I have finally gotten around to. I used him as a paint scheme tester for his brothers from Bones 2, which I'll be converting and painting shortly. I like how he looks overall, but I kinda think his skin tone is a little off; I think he looks too 'alive'. What do you think? Blood and gore were done with a hair, superglue, Tamiya clear red, and Tamiya smoke. I'll go into the process in detail if anyone's interested. C&C welcome.
  2. Welcome to the spring edition 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 4. 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 one or both 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. 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 April 17th (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. Also, coordinators please note: we're changing up the way the boxes will end up; you won't be getting your group paint figure back, you'll be getting someone else's. 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 4. Thanks
  3. Here are a couple of Bones goblins I painted up yesterday. Just a quick tabletop paint job. I did a few minor conversions; detailed them here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68042-chaos-wolfs-conversion-clinic-pic-heavy-open-topic/ Please let me know what you think.
  4. We're just about to the end of Sir Forscale's travels with the Box of Goodwill for round 3. I've got a few observations, and some questions for you. First off, I think that going forward, we definitely want to try to avoid having this overlap with the holiday season; this round took a heck of a long time to conclude, and I think that might be why. Second, there (seemed to me, at least) were quite a few communications break downs. I know that real life has a way of rearing it's ugly head at the worst possible times, but everyone please try to do your best to send the box on it's merry way within the one week time frame. If you can't, that's cool, life happens, but please drop a quick PM to your box coordinator so that everyone knows what's going on. Ok, questions: 1) Should we try and set this up to happen a finite number of times/year, or just keep it going the way we have been as a more or less constant turn around? (With the exception of avoiding the holiday season) 2) SGHawkins09 is running a basing BoGW (sign up for it, it sounds cool!). Should we slightly change the focus of the box to not have basing stuff, or leave it as is for folks who don't want to sign up for the basing version? (Reasoning for Q2: I don't want to be in competition with SGHawkins09, I think it's really cool of her to take the idea and run with it. Or am I just over-thinking this?) 3) How many boxes are too many? Should I hold off a bit (it's going to be a few more weeks anyway) before starting off round 4? Is it going to be a hassle ( and therefore not fun) to have to deal with possibly getting both boxes at the same time, or very near to each other? Or am I over thinking this one, too? 4) Ub3r_N3rd is stepping down as my helper with this ( round of applause, you were a big help, bud. Thank you). Would anyone like to volunteer to take over for him? It's not a lot of work, especially now as we've gotten most of the wrinkles ironed out. Basically, you'd be there to be a sounding board for any 'brilliant' ideas I come up with, and to help out with answering questions/concerns in the event that I'm out of town or otherwise can't get to them in a timely fashion. So, let me know what you think.
  5. I discovered yesterday that Simple Green works amazingly well to remove the oil/grease/mold release agent/whatever it is that is on resin miniatures/bases/parts. I dipped an old toothbrush in some undiluted SG, and scrubbed for maybe 30 secs, and the piece came out nice and clean, ready for primer/paint. I am doing an experiment to see if diluted (with water) SG will work as well. Results in a few days.
  6. This is a speed painted repaint of an old Mage knight figure; I think it was the 'feral bloodsucker'. It looked like a werebat to me, so that's what he became. I did the figure in perhaps an hour and a half (not including basing, lotta glue and different materials there). I just painted right over the original paint job (there wasn't really much there to begin with). I did this guy while I was waiting for some green stuff to dry on a different project. Please let me know what you think.
  7. This is a group of wraiths made by Grenadier figures many, many years ago. I know that the wraith on the round dirt base is Grenadier; his base says so. The rest I'm not certain about, but they look the same, so I'm making an assumption. If I'm wrong, please let me know and I'll correct this post. There isn't much to say about these guys, there's not really a whole lot there. I tried to make them more interesting by putting more effort into the bases, especially the 'floating' guy; I think that worked out very nicely. Tabletop paint; please let me know what you think.
  8. Here's the official arrival/departure thread for round 3 of the Box of Goodwill. Remember, no chatter here, please.

  9. This is an old Medusa figure produced by Grim Reaper castings as part of their 'Nasteez' line. I grabbed her from the box of Good Will last round and decided to paint her a few days ago. The rock on the base is resin and is from Last Stand Convertibles. Table top paint job, as usual. The stone is supposed to be obsidian; the shine you can see on it actually isn't from flash/lights, it's painted on. Please let me know what think. Links to photobucket, 'cause nudity. http://s393.photobucket.com/user/ChaosWolf/media/IMG_07461.jpg.html http://s393.photobucket.com/user/ChaosWolf/media/IMG_07501.jpg.html
  10. This is an old RAFM dwarf warrior released in 1989 if I remember correctly. He was released for the 'Death in the Dark' miniature skirmish game that RAFM produced way back in the day. I never played the game, but I do have a few of the miniatures in my hoard. This is one of them. He's a little short by today's standards, so I decided to give him a little 'step up'. C and C is very welcome. ETA---and I can see the mistakes, now that they have blown up a gajillion percent.
  11. I've just started watching the TV show Black Sails (yeah, I know it's been on for 3 seasons already, you hush ) and it put me in the mood to paint some pirates. This is an old Mage knight figure; it was called Xandressan Captain. She certainly looks like a pirate to me, so she got a quick makeover. Tabletop paint as usual; I think the most interesting part about the figure is her base. I made the ship's deck from toothpicks, which I first stained and then used several different inks to try and give it an interesting appearance. The base took at least as long as the figure; measuring, cutting, and placing the 'boards' took forever! I like the way it came out, though. I hope you like her.
  12. This is a quick little conversion from Reapercon last year that I finally painted up. (What? I have figures older than you are that I still haven't painted yet. This is fast by comparison). The little familiar is riding on the spider, which is mounted on a base from Secret Weapon miniatures. Tabletop paint,as usual. As an experiment, this figure was done almost entirely with inks. Please let me know what you think.
  13. More old school lead today; this one is an old Dwarven Archer by Grenadier, painted to table top as usual. He's a little small, so I may use him as a gnome. I hope you like him.
  14. This figure is one of a set of 8 female adventurers that Ral Partha released as a boxed set many, many years ago. I have set (but not the box), and they were all painted up (badly) in my youthful exuberance. I came across them while looking for something else and decided to fix them up. This is the first one that I've finished. Since these ladies are true 25mm scale, they'll probably be used as halflings or gnomes. I hope you like her.
  15. This little guy is from the Hell Dorado game. I'm not sure what he's supposed to be; I couldn't find him anywhere, I guess he's OOP. Anyway, I figure that he makes a pretty good goblin/imp/familiar. What do you think? Uh....blue goblin...Buglips isn't gonna be happy about this...
  16. I had to go to Walmart to get a couple of things earlier. While I was there, I spotted some aquarium stuff on sale. I grabbed what you see below. I didn't know what for at the time, but it was cheap, and I could use it for something. Looking at it more closely, (and putting a figure next to it) I figured it would make a pretty cool cave mouth. Except I don't have any foam to make a cave/cliff face with. So I put it asiude and began working on other stuff. A while later, inspiration struck--an evil shrine!! Here is what I'm working with: I'm probably not going to do much with the paint job, maybe some touch ups here and there. Most of the WIP will be adding bits and pieces to it (those will be painted, of course). At this point, all I've done is remove the plants that came with it. ETA--aw, jeez. Did I just pull a dumb move? Should this be here, or in the terrain section? If a mod sees this, put it where ever you think best. Sorry for the extra work...
  17. I honestly can't remember where I got this, or who made it, so if you know please let me know. This is a quick speed paint/experiment. Other than primer, I did the whole thing with a succession of different washes, inks, and a little bit of drybrushing until it looked sufficiently grungy and disgusting. I think it took me about 2 hours all together. C&C is always welcome.
  18. Yes, it's a little late, but here is the group paint figure from my box in round 2 of the Box of Goodwill. In no particular order; these are the talented folks who worked on her: Mad Jack Flamehawke David Brawley Thes Hunter RGTriplec Kay13 KangarooRex Jasper the 2nd Thankfully, all they left me to do was try and not wreck all of the good work that they did. Oh, and the dragon's EYE. Which is why it took me so long to get it finished. I also added some grass to the base. Great job, everyone!
  19. Kaitlynn surveyed the battlefield; the ogres and beastmen had been decisively defeated with this battle. They had been routed, but it would take many more days and weeks to hunt them all down and eliminate them, so that the regions safety would be ensured. It seemed like it wasn't all that long ago, and indeed it was only a year or two, that she and her friends on started out on the road to fortune and glory. There hadn't been much of either in those early days; giant rats and bandits weren't known for their legendary treasure hoards. Still, she had learned valuable skills in those days; skills that had served to help keep her and her friends alive. Well, most of her friends, anyway. They had suffered the loss of the dwarven warrior Harbrom while fighting orcs in Scorchskull pass. He sent at least a score of the beasts to their foul gods before he fell, though. The memory brought a painful smile to her face; he had always teased her about choosing to learn swordsmanship instead of the axe. 'Nothing better than a fine dwarven axe in yer hands, girl.' he always used to say. She shook her head to clear the memories; time enough for that later when she was relaxing with Talen at his tavern. At least he had lived... This is the second (mid level) stage of Ral Partha's 3 stage fighter; I did the low level version a couple of months ago. She can be seen here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65400-ral-partha-3-stage-female-fighterlow-level/?p=1257120 She was painted for Inarah's end of year paint binge. I have the third (high level) stage as well, I'll paint her up once I figure out where I hid her from myself. I hope you like her.
  20. This is an old drow elf made by RAFM that I've had mostly done on my shelf for way too long. All I needed to finish was his boots and base; I have no idea why I didn't finish him up before. Anyway, he's done now. Most of the paint is from a couple years ago...
  21. I had mixed up a unique shade of gray paint for another figure I'm working on, and had a fair bit left over. Not wanting to waste it, I dug this out of storage and slapped it on him. I think it took me about an hour and a half to finish him up. The base color is pretty close to the same color as the figure; this is intentional. I wanted to get kind of a camouflage effect with it. The figure has a loincloth sculpted on, which I found kind of funny. Why would a gargoyle need a loincloth, are they anatomically correct? My mind works in strange ways sometimes... Anyway, here's the pics, please let me know what you think.
  22. This is an old Ral Partha ( I think--if you know differently, please let me know and I'll edit the thread ) brazier I was originally going to use it with my evil shrine aquarium piece (see here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60231-evil-shrine-terrain-piece/?p=1089218), but I couldn't get it to fit inside to my satisfaction. I finally decided to just paint it up separately. I wanted to try painting fire again. I've done it a few other times, but it always looked 'wrong' somehow. I'm moderately happy with this attempt. I started off with white, went to yellow, and then used red, orange, and finally all three wet blended together to try and make it look 'real'. What do you think?
  23. This will (hopefully) be used as the beginning of a terrain collection that I'm going to be working on for skirmish games, such as Frostgrave. I made it from a 10/15mm watchtower that I've had around for ages. I'm sorry, but I don't remember who made it. I filed the top flat to serve as a base for the statue which is an old Mage Knight piece, which is itself a copy of an even older Ral Partha figure. The paint/quality of the figure itself wasn't worth trying to save, but it was decent enough to make a statue, so here it is.
  24. Last week I became the proud new owner of a second hand Skaven (GW ratmen) army. Most of the rank-n-file troops are plastic. Due to being insane and not having enough ongoing projects, I have decided to fix up and make a multi-base/diorama (for possible use in Kings of War) a whole bunch of them. I'll be making a 'horde' of ratmen on a sewer base. Officially, a horde is 40 figures, 10 across by 4 deep, in ranks. I'm going to be using less than that; the final count isn't determined yet, but I have a hard time thinking of a horde of rats in perfect military formation, so my base will be the appropriate size, but the figures will be scattered around chaotically, as befitting a horde of vermin. I will be using a few Reaper figures here and there to help 'fill up space', mostly rat swarms and some giant rats. As far as the base goes, I'm thinking it'll be (mostly) flat, with part of it being lower and filled with sewage. For the lower part, should it run the length of the base, or cut across the width? Any suggestions? This is what I'm working with as far the figures go: Broken/missing parts, mold lines all over the place, and a fairly slapdash paint job. I will be making repairs (this has actually already begun). cleaning up mold lines, and touching up the existing paint. I like the scheme, so I'm going to stay with it, and just fix it up. This will be a slow-burn project; I have no desire to try and paint 20-30 ratmen all at once. This will get worked on here and there between other things that I'm doing.
  25. Hey, look! I actually painted something by Reaper! I filled in the holes on his axe with some green stuff; I thought it looked kinda silly in it's original state. Tabletop paint, as usual for me. I'm still trying to work on my reds. I hope you like him.
