  1. Starting (finally) to begin adding cavalry to the contingent of infantry and archers I have
  2. It's been a while since I've painted a Reaper miniature, so I thought I would post my latest creation here. I had a lot of fun painting this mini - blue is one of my favorite colors to blend with, and I enjoy painting fun hair, like her braid in the back. TMM was used on the metal.
  3. Finished off 9 cavalry figures. They are all kitbashed from the Frostgrave female soldiers and wizards. They have been combined either with Gripping Beast Arab cavalry or with Perry Miniatures late medieval light cavalry or French dragoons. Some of the arms (in particular spear arms) are from the Oathmark elves. The Frostgrave minis have narrower waists and go well with Perry miniatures and with the gripping beast kit. The Perry napoleonic kit has a lot of blankets and furs on the horses, and the legs are separate to the torsos and have high boots. I was scared of painting horses but just went for ultra simple coloured undercoats and washes. I need one more lancer to have a unit of 10. May go for a bloke for balance, and to have someone who can tackle spiders and open jars.
  4. I realised that I had so many Frostgrave soldiers painted up that i had quite a big army for games like Saga, Warlords of Erehwon, Or even Kings of War. Am going to have a war machine with Frostgrave soldier crew, and these lancers /light cavalry. These are the Frostgrave females, mainly, mixed with the legs and horses from Gripping Beast's Arab heavy cavalry. I cut the FG minis in half with a razor saw at the belt line and they fit the bodies perfectly. There is a Victrix cloak in there and the armoured rider has Oathmark elf arms, but essentially everything else (including the bits and pieces of luggage stuck to the horses) is from the Frostgrave females sprue. I will probably do a black wash on the riders (not the horses) and a couple of highlights. I need to do a snow effect base and then make up 5 more. The idea is to have a 50/50 male female unit but keep the light armour/wrapped up look.
  5. These maginificent minis were donated by @malefactus to add to my Lost World Project. WIP Here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=109 Eureka Miniatures ( Pond Wars Range). I painted the Frog riders as Poison Dart Frogs and the Toad mounts as Bombina Orientalis ( Chinese Firebelly Toads). I had both as pets in my youth. Here is the unit, and in the latter pics on my Jungle Photobackdrop Board. EDIT : I wasn't completely satisfied with Red Frog, so a little Vallejo Heavy Warm Grey and some Reaper Sample Paint for his mouth.
  6. These are from Kensei, I got them from their Kickstarter Wako vs Namban. I used them as Conquistadores for my Lost World Project. 5 Herruelos ( Cavalry with arquebuses). I got some great advice from @SisterMaryNapalm about the horses, I do think they look better this way. WIP here. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=143 I used resin bases and made two myself with a Rollerpin from Greenstuffworld.
  7. Here's something I acquired and painted a long time ago. It was made by Reaper in the early '90s but is no longer in the catalog as far as I could find. It's rather primitive compared to the modern mouslings, but still quite nice. Note the worm-like segmented tail. The mousling is cast as a separate piece from the kangaroo rat, but its tail is not. Also this mousling has slender, human-like hand and feet, whereas the current ones have more teddy bear-like extremities.
  8. Here is my rendition of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. I painted them to serve as the climactic opponents in a friend's role-playing game -- a session that occurred this afternoon. I'm not a regular member of the group, but I got to sit in today, with a recurring friendly NPC for my character. Quick description of the campaign: Spycraft d20 system with some elements of D&D v3.5, and the twist is that the "good guy" secret agents are all liches! They are powerful undead beings from various times of the past millennium and from around the world. The head of their agency assembled them as a special squad. This gaming group has been meeting every other Sunday for several years, rotating through systems and GMs every few months; this was the fourth chapter of their "LichCraft" campaign, and the GM had woven in hints and clues about today's apocalyptic battle. My friend wanted to make today's final session special by having appropriate painted miniatures for the Four Horsemen. A few months ago, he and I discussed what he had in mind, he chose these figures from Reaper (though the original "Reapers of the Apocalypse" #2001-2004 didn't fit what he imagined), and I converted and painted them. I thought about documenting the conversions, but then forgot to take photos, and I was halfway through priming them when I thought about it again. These are relatively quick paint-jobs, taking about four to six hours each. War (the red one), the biggest and most complicated, took the longest of the four. Here is the group-shot: 1) Famine. Its color is black (which I steered toward purple) and its symbol is the scales. The rider and horse are a simple Skeletal Cavalry (02361), with some conversions: - shield-boss removed, to get a smooth surface for the symbol - spear-tip resculpted (putty) - cloak and hood (putty) added to the rider - big and ragged new saddle-blanket (putty) added over the original small rectangular one - shinguards (putty) added to the horse, just to set it apart from Pestilence's otherwise identical horse. The original model: The finished model: 2) Death. Its color is green and its symbol is a scythe. The rider and horse are a Deathrider (14149). I added the rider's ragged cowl (putty) so I would have another surface to paint green. The finished model: 3) War. Its color is red and its shield bears a twisted symbol of insanity. This is the stock model Golgoth (03357). I puttied over some of the joins between parts -- and sculptor Kevin Williams did a great job figuring out how to divide this model into its components -- but I didn't change anything. The finished model: 4) Pestilence ... or maybe Conquest ... or maybe ConQuestilence. Its color is white (which I steered toward pale blue), it wields a bow, and it wears an iron crown. The horse is the same as Famine's (02361), but with some minor re-posing, and the rider is a Skeletal Archer (14382). These are my conversions: - tab-base removed from archer, and stirrups added (putty) - lower jaw and crown added to archer (putty) - archery bracer and shoulder-guard added (putty) to stabilize the weak left arm and bow, which tended to bend or twist - big and ragged new saddle-blanket (putty) added over the original small rectangular one. The original archer model: The finished model: In today's session, the Four Horsemen and an illusion-veiled clay golem (made to look like a devil) destroyed three of our five liches, and the other two plus my character (a high-level druid) were on the ropes, but finally we won out. The GM was also the DJ during the session, providing a solid soundtrack of metal and hardcore (Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Three Inches of Blood, Black Flag, et al.). Our "dead" liches' phylacteries were safely on board an airplane, though, so they'll reform their bodies and get back together in a few days. The Four Horsemen themselves may actually have been aspects of a single powerful lich -- the PCs' nemesis -- whose phylactery is unaccounted for.... Enjoy! Derek
  9. My Iron Kingdoms RPG group sometimes can’t hold back. When we saw that Borka: Vengeance of the Rimshaws was riding a polar bear… well, we had to figure out how that might work for us. Luckily, we have a very good GM who is willing to make up some rules in the name of Awesome. And then it fell to me to create some awesome minis featuring our heroes riding bears. I grabbed a couple bears from Scibor (they’re very large) and put a couple of Reaper Bones minis on them- then did a lot of sculpting. Here are the results: First off- the Gobber Man-at-Arms/Duelist/Horseman: And our Trollkin Alchemist/Earth Sorcerer/Long Rider
  10. Inspired by this version, I decided to paint my own rusty Golgoth. Enjoy! As always, c & c welcome!
  11. Well, this makes me 2/3 complete in Warrior, Maiden, Monster. The Monster is just having some curing issues with his water effects. Vincente, Onyx Chevalier Plain basing, for now. His broccoli looked like rocks, so he got rocks. As always, C&C welcome! Also in the Inspiration Gallery.
  12. So, for Christmas my parents went down my Reaper shopping list and scored one of each of the Anhurian units I had put on there - I had thought I might get one or tw, but all at once? WAHOO! Now I have a small horde of little metal men crying out to be painted and fielded, not to mention 3 Doors Down playing in the back of my head... Here's the first wave, with my already painted Anhurians. Waiting in the wings are an Anhurian elite guard, an Anhurian cavalry, and two swordsmen - I think there were supposed to be four in the blister, though, so I have an e-mail into Reaper about that, and I'll wait on unblistering them until I hear back. I'm torn on doing them all in the "stock" sapphire blue color, ala L2PK1 (and my current Anhurians), and separating them into squads and doing some blue, some red, and maybe some green. I've separated the men-at-arms, crossbowmen, and archers into two units, and done the first half with Reaper brush-on primer. The plan right now is to do the other unit in black gesso.
