  1. So, I have had a good experience with RCL this year. I came into it late in January, and have already cleared 31 minis. That is almost twice my usual yearly production. Then I thought I knocked it out of the park last year with 50. If I continue this pace I hope to finish 100+ minis this year. My motivation is to plow through Bones I Kickstarter minis. Because I have all my B3/4/5 minis waiting, and just added my pledged Bones 6 stuff to the list! Not including my Quarterlies, here is my planning list for May. Points listed to the left. May 10 Trio Galladon 7 Duo Anval Half Orc Fighter. 5 New Release Old Kobold 4 Theme Scales/Claws - owlbear? 4 Limited Palette - purple, brown, blue-Mummy 3 Monster - Kobold Metal 3 PC - Almaran 1 Freebie-? Ral Partha Kobold
  2. I tried to copy @Wren perfect color scheme for the female efreeti. Worked on her for about a week. Pleased with the outcome. C&C welcome.
  3. Here’s the first new project of 2022. I looked through the forums and saw a few versions of this based on the Redstone Triad. I will try that. I put a few pieces of cobblestone sheet styrene on the base, then flocked with sand. I hope it will look like fragments of an old road when I’m done.
  4. Time for the next in line for Bones I. Aina, Female Valkyrie. I will paint the metal version concurrently. I already pinned the weapon hand on the metal version, and pinned the arm for the shield. I’ll apply the shield later. The Bones version still has a ton of detail, so I suspect these will take a while. Planning Red/Gold for metal version (her shield is a little Romanesque), and Blue/White for the Bones version.
  5. Next in line: 77049, Bones Arthrand Nightblade, Elf Ranger. I tried priming with a 1:1 mix of Blue Liner:White Brush On Primer. There were a few mold lines and casting valleys that showed up. I put a layer of Brush On Sealer on them. We’ll see how that worked.
  6. I only saw one thread about crackle paste when I searched these forums. So, I’m going to share how it’s going for me. I started with washed and dried 1” and 2” Reaper Bases. I put this garbage on a 2 inch base first. Don’t buy it. I got it at Hobby Lobby at the time because they were out of Folk Art. To be clear, this is Crackle Medium. It is meant to be painted on a primed or rough surface I guess, and painted thin. I put it on kind of thick. It didn’t crackle at all! So, I got a tub of this stuff on Amazon. The directions state “put over a thin layer of PVA glue.” Pfft, who has time for that extra step? Here is the result on a washed but otherwise un prepped set of bases. 1 inch 2 inch. Lousy! So, the surface needs something for crackle paste to work right. This is a 1” base with a thin layer of PVA glue. This is a 1” base with just hitting it with 220 grit sandpaper and washing it again. I also used the 2” base with dried crackle medium on it. Not pictured. This is a 2” base covered in black brush on primer. Here is the result on the 2” base over dried crackle medium. It was hard to get the stuff into a uniform layer, as the medium created a very hydrophobic surface, so the paste slides around too easy.
  7. Taking a hiatus on the Mocking Beast. Trying to gain some victory in numbers on my Bonesium Horde. I have completed the beetle swarms, spider swarms, and skeletons without WIP. I’m going to do the goblins now. I plan two batches: one yellow/ochre, and the other tangerine. Some nice “non-Greenskins.” Several of these required boiling. Some are still leaning. The spears are straighter. One of these was the beneficiary of a weapon swap. I had given Danar, Male Assassin 77030 his shield for a spiked shield. In return, we have a dual wielding goblin!
  8. This one is next in line. He needs a better base. This is a standard Reaper 1 inch base. And a sheet of embossed styrene cobblestone, for model railroading. I superglued it on, trimmed around it with an X-Acto, then sanded it down to 800 grit. Any gap left is going to get the Brush On Sealer treatment to deal with the seam. After this I just superglued the Mocking Beast on. No pin.
  9. Here is my BONES version of the Eye Beast. This is my project going model-by-model down the Bones I Kickstarter rewards images through all my models, and logging them as WIP. And bringing along any pewter versions I have for the ride. WIP Here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/95874-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-13-eye-beast/ These guys are very rewarding and great practice for eyes. I coated the eyes and mouth with brush on gloss varnish to give it that live, wet, salivating look. Enjoy. C/C Welcome.
  10. Here is my pewter version of the Eyebeast. This is my project going model-by-model down the Bones I Kickstarter rewards images through all my models, and logging them as WIP.

  11. I started this to be the BBEG for Dragon's Demand. I really enjoyed painting it. This is my first full dragon miniature painted. I spent a lot of time on it, and I'm pleased with the outcome. I hope you like it. This was my first time using Birch seed pod debris as leaves, and I think they look good. Here is the link to the WIP: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/92764-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-11-shadow-dragon/&tab=comments#comment-1965291 C&C welcome.
  12. Since the Eye Beasts are making good progress, getting the next model ready. A suitable Player Character model. Turanil, Male Elf Paladin. The plan is white and red. I’m hoping the peacock comes across as a Phoenix.
  13. Here was my entry for the 16th quarterly Reaper Facebook Contest. I was honored to receive an honorable mention. There were dozens of fantastic entries. I wanted to try a white dragon coloration. I have Deathsleet in my queue, so this is a test run. His scales are Dragon White. The ventral surfaces are more of a bone color with Creamy Ivory and Linen White, with Sepia Wash. His dagger is a green NMM. His eyes are gem-like, not lizard pupils. The skirt completes the “triangle of interest” green color. I rebased him on a Micro Arts 30mm Sewer base. I had a lot of fun with this one. I wanted to keep him as a rogue, so I chose a dagger and loot bag from his hand choices. I also painted his armor as leather with some gold NMM. Enjoy.
  14. Here is the big boss of the Bones I Orc Warband. With all of these Orcs they are shadowed with a purple color. I added some green freckles/sun spots for a little interest. For his shield trophies, I included some skin tones and hair colors that could represent elf, dwarf, human, goblin and undead. The wood planks and boards on the shield are freehand. Kavorgh got a little extra love with the bloodstain on the axe. WIP here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93235-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-12-orcpocalypse/ And the group shot. Enjoy.
  15. Here is another of the Orc Warband from Bones I. He had a very bent sword, so I swapped it with one from the Bones III weapon sprue. WIP Here. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93235-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-12-orcpocalypse/ And the group shot. Enjoy.
  16. Here is another of the Orc Warband from Bones I. WIP Here. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93235-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-12-orcpocalypse/ And the group shot. Enjoy.
  17. Here is another of the Orc Warband from Bones I. WIP link here. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93235-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-12-orcpocalypse/ Here is the group shot. Enjoy.
  18. Here is another of the orc warband from Bones I. His spear was too floppy, so his spear tip is a weapon swap from the weapon sprue from Bones III. WIP link: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93235-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-12-orcpocalypse/ And the group shot. Enjoy.
  19. This is one of the warband of Orcs from Bones I. I though all of these had a lot of character. I painted them up as light grey-green based on some of the Dungeon Dwellers paint sets. The wood grain inside the shield is freehand. Here is the WIP for the whole group. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93235-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-12-orcpocalypse/ If I had it to do over again I’d change the fur colors, because they blend in with the chainmail. Here are the group shots. Enjoy.
  20. Here are some harpies. Linked due to nudity. When possible, I’ll try to paint Metal along with Bones if I have the same mini in both media. I found these a little odd, with feathers on part of the wings but serpent scales on the thighs. So I went chromatic dragon colors. The feet/claws were based off some raptor pictures off the net. Also tried three different skin tones: African, tanned, and ruddy, with correspondingly ?appropriate hair colors? I gave two beach bases and one a rocky base. Enjoy. FYI black scales with white feathers is BONES, and the other two are Metal. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/0ukqgzcvl45o33a/AADc0CkmAcGnUSlhD9bRjTZ6a?dl=0
  21. Linked photos due to nudity. This was a quick paint job trying out the Golden Skin triad. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/gv67iiqzdbmkgnp/AABkN4rQVefNZkapQ8dJLibna?dl=0 I’ve never tried Dropbox before, let me know if it doesn’t work right.
  22. Another quick and dirty. No blending in the skin/fur. A night’s work showing my son about painting fire. No WIP. Sorry the face close up is out of focus.
  23. I’ve been going through BONES I mostly in order, doing several WIP. This was the next. I wanted to try to improve on my OSL so he got a green magic glowing gem. Still not great, but the idea comes across. Link to WIP. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/92763-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-10-satheras/&tab=comments#comment-1965284 I didn’t bother trying to paint his eyes due to the extreme shadowing...
  24. Such a fun idea for a mini! But then you have to paint all the dragon scales. I was going for a more Asian skin tone. I tried to speed through this one since her sword was so bent. WIP link below. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/92275-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-8-janan-female-dragonslayer/&tab=comments#comment-1955669 Enjoy.
  25. Sometimes you just speed through one. I had this one on my shelf for a while. Pulled it down to try a new skin triad, and also to teach my son a few pointers. Tried to weather his apron with some gouges and oil stains. I also consciously made his pants like blue jeans, so he could cross over into other genres.
