77684 A real devil to paint
R2ED posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingThis one is a real devil to paint. I got the body down and feel the colors there all make sense for a fire demon. But the wings...I can't figure out what to do with them. I was thinking to make them the feature and brighten them up, but the more I look at it the more I think the face and body are the focus. Needing some help here. BATTLE REPORT! Wins: * Another round of dry brushing success! Did a scarlet red, to flat red, to clear orange dry brush triad. * Used clear orange filter to bring up the areas of highlight and the subtle change looks really good and helps increase contrast. * Horns seem to work pretty good with a oragnge/buff/white mix transitioning up. * Dry brushing the gold kept it a cooler color rather than a overwhelming "bam" gold look. I used a yellow+gold mix to highlight the edge of the sword, but in looking at the photo I may need to increase this. * Vein on the right bicep has a purple hue I added. I thought it was cool. Misses: * I got pretty far along and then realized I have no idea how I want to do the wings. I need help! I need direction on the bone sections versus the wing membrane. * The left calf got a bit too healthy of a helping of orange filter. * The horns on his head don't seem to fit as well, but it's growing on me slowly. * Tried putting yellow eyes. Didn't like it. Then tried doing yellow with purple dots. Didn't like it. Then tried yellow with white slits. Meh. * Used a filter around the eyes with yellow to give a glowing effect, but it was way too overpowering and ended up making him a devil raccoon. Not the intended effect. Died it back down with red, but still stands out a little weird. I've got 2 more in this series and want to give them some consistency. I was thinking the female devil I would do a purple/red mix. As always, open to some ideas. If you're going to give feedback, I'd love some ideas on a diorama I could do with the three completed devils.
Every fiendish army needs tiny minions to throw through the meat grinders. Today I've got some assorted imps and quasits (the demonic counterpart to imps for you non-D&D folk). First up, The Quasits These fun little guys are the grunts of the demonic legions. The front two are Quasits from the Nolzur's Unpainted set "Imps & Quasits" #WZK73719. The back three are Reaper Bones Hordlings (77335). More Below the Spoiler: And up next, The Imps These three imps are all Nolzur's from "Imps & Quasits" #WZK73719 and "Familiars" #WZK72563 More Below the Spoiler Was definitely going cross-eyed after painting these tiny guys. What's the smallest mini you've ever painted? (Feel free to share pictures)

Maledrakh posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingThe male devils from the Bedeviled subset of the Bones 4 core set: I did them in different colours just because I wanted to.

I based them on 40mm bases. #73 Male Devil with Khopesh (no idea what the official name is / will be) #74 Male Devil with Trident (ditto) Hello most valued supplier! We would like to make you an offer to purchase your soul. In exchange I am sure you would like some earthly power?

Dungeon Saga - Infernal crypts expansion (Mantic)
Skrill posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingHi all, After painting the base game of Dungeon Saga (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65599-dungeon-saga-painted-mantic) and getting a few games in, I decided to speed paint one of the expansions I got as part of the Kickstarter. The expansion is the "Infernal Crypts" which changes the setting from a dungeon inhabited by undeads to a crypt in an infernal abyss. The box adds 2 new heroes (a Human Cleric and a Naiad Demon Hunter) as well as a bunch of infernal minions and monsters. Painting-wise, my focus was once again speed. So I went for simple and efficient (Basecoat -> Wash -> occasional highlight), the main objective being to have better looking miniatures than the plain coloured plastic, while being able to withstand the abuse of gametime. Here they are: The Heroes and the big boss: The Denizens of the Abyss: And the big Molochs (size of a Troll): C&C always appreciated.
Filling the ranks of Outsiders
Arikiel posted a topic in General FantasyHello everybody! I've been considering my collection of Outsiders, for D&D/Pathfinder. I'm keeping things simple and just doing four main groupings. Combined Angels/Archons (LG), Azata/Eladrin/Fey (CG), Demons (CE), and Devils (LE). I was hoping to get your thoughts/general input on filling the blank slots I've got. Demons are pretty easy as there's a plethora in every edition and in mini form. Type 0 (CR 7ish): Succubus (77067) Type 1 (CR 8-9): Vrock (77262) Type 2 (CR10-11): Hezrou (77377) Type 3 (CR 12-13): Glabrezu (77307) Type 4 (CR 14-15): Nalfeshnee (77308) Type 5 (CR 16-17): Marilith (77393) Type 6 (CR 20+): Balor (77315) Devils are also pretty straight forward. I'm hoping the missing ones will come out in Bones 3. Type 0 (CR 7ish): Erinyes (77281 or 77370) Type 1 (CR 8-9): Bone Devil (77325) Type 2 (CR10-11): Barbed Devil (?) Type 3 (CR 12-13): Ice Devil (77324) Type 4 (CR 14-15): ??? (?) Type 5 (CR 16-17): Horned Devil (?) Type 6 (CR 20+): Pit Fiend (77112) Angels are pretty well covered in mechanically but not in miniature form. Type 0 (CR 7ish) ??? (77364?) Type 1 (CR 8-9): ??? (?) Type 2 (CR10-11): Movanic Deva (?) Type 3 (CR 12-13): Monadic Deva (?) Type 4 (CR 14-15): Astral Deva (?) Type 5 (CR 16-17): Planetar (77363) Type 6 (CR 20+): Solar (?) Azata/Eladrin/Fey is where I'm having a hard time coming up with anything. Type 0 (CR 7ish): "Sylph" (77266) Type 1 (CR 8-9): upgraded Lillend? (?) Type 2 (CR10-11): ??? (?) Type 3 (CR 12-13): Ghaele (?) Type 4 (CR 14-15): ??? (?) Type 5 (CR 16-17): ??? (?) Type 6 (CR 20+): ??? (?) I could possibly work in the Horned Hunter (89033) and Spirit of the Forest (77184) somehow. Would also be up for using the Cloud Giant (77162) and Storm Giant (77179) as they don't really fit with the rest of the giants in my world setting. Sort of as "titans" maybe? *shrugs*
Flow's First WIP - RAUTHUROS
Flow posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingAnd I say "RAUTHUROS" - because, come on, look at this thing. If a gigantic demon from hell deserves anything at all, it is capslock. This is to be my 20th miniature painted*, and I thought - since it's a nice, round, some what meaningful sounding number, that it should be one of my "big" ones that I've gotten stockpiled. Rauthuros is definitely in the "big" category. I managed to pick this guy up for relatively cheap (RSP of 50 bucks, got him for $29.99 over Christmas. I have also never done a WIP before, but will try to stick with it, but hereby assert my right to run away and hide and pretend this thread never, ever existed if this thing doesn't go half-way as good as I'd like. Here is Rauthuros, assembled, by someone other than me: This is a 13 piece model, consisting of four wing pieces, four arms, two body pieces, two tail pieces, and his big fat head. This initial post may look like fast progress but I admit to starting the thread late. I initially started this guy a couple of months ago and got the wings together (I regret not having pictures of that process), but then had a mishap. I had some early confusion as I couldn't quite mash his tail into his butt, and had a last moment realization that my kit was actually missing a tail piece. No wonder the tail didn't fit. Thank God Reaper allows you to order small pieces of a mini; I was able to order his missing tail piece from their site and closeted the progress while waiting for it to arrive. So, this initial post comprises that early effort, plus yesterday, plus this evening. To start, and not photographed, I had the wings together. They're big, giant, smack-you-in-the-face wings, and I did use two pins on one and one pin in the other (should have used two pins), plus used Gorilla 2-part epoxy. They feel very solid, to the point that I believe I could cause a lot of damage if I threw them at someone (this comparison may be used repeatedly throughout this WIP). It seemed logical then to just start assembling small pieces and work my way up. Next is connecting the tail end with the tail middle (the latter being the part I was originally missing). I did stick a pin in the tail end, though I ended up having to clip it pretty short for this to work. The tail end goes in at an angle not really a lot of pin penetration. However, a dab of 2-part epoxy should set it up. Once plugged in, it's a matter of leaning it (precariously) against random crap on my desk and letting it set. And - set! It's ready to jam right into his demonic butt. This was also done with a small pin and more 2-part epoxy from Gorilla. I'm using 2-part epoxy as it just is a bit hardier than super glue, and this thing is big. Plus, if I throw it at someone, I'd prefer it didn't break apart (though the potential for shrapnel damage is attractive). With this done, his bottom half is pretty much set. Here are the wings leaning against a vitamin bottle. They may look like some sort of connection between them is curing and hardening. This is a lie. Gorilla's 2-part epoxy is a specialized high-tech formula that dries in five minutes - so says the bottle. In actuality, it gets gummy in 5 minutes, and then actually dries whenever the hell it darn well pleases, thank you very much. These two wings leaning against the vitamin bottle where not pinned, because I was tired and wanted to go eat cheese. Given the lack of pinning and the epoxy's fickle nature, this ended in tears and ambien. So, after the cheese, and sometime before ambien, I drilled a hole in that sucker and stuck in a .85 mm pin. This next picture actually isn't a lie - that sucker worked MUCH better with a pin in it. This was the end of yesterday, and here's me holding it this morning. It worked! If I throw this at someone, it might strike its target and then spin around and return to my hand. Might. Or, I might be arrested. I'm not sure which but my imagination reels with potential. Okay, so I stuck pins in his little wrists and his big fat head. He also has two fist dagger things, which I forgot to mention that I ALSO already stuck on some months ago. Oh well. Just 2-part epoxy for those; their little handles were so thin that I just didn't feel comfortable drilling in them. Their being light though is a saving grace; they're not going anywhere. The pin system with his two sword arms and his big fat head worked kind of perfectly, and these pieces jammed on with no problem. I dabbed superglue on the tips of the pins and 2-part epoxy around the connections. Blending adhesive like this seems experimental to me but it seems to work; the superglue helps to get it into position, and then the 2-part epoxy dries (whenever it darn well pleases) and then the thing is solid. So, here are the set wings. See anything amiss? Just gaze about the middle of one of the win OMG LOOK AT THOSE HINGES. Yeah, they're huge. Another shot of just one of the wings with a good look at OMG LOOK AT THOSE HINGES So - green stuff! One wing half done. The other demon pieces sitting there, just chilling, giving off demonic atmosphere and stuff. Before and after with the green stuff, showing one half of it pretty smooth and the other half OMG LOOK AT...you get the idea. Rauthuros says "OH GOD, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME, AH GOD THE PAIN, THIS - YOU CRUEL, CRUEL BASTARD." Yeah. He's pinned. With the pin in his middle, I did the superglue/2-part epoxy bit and jammed him together. Here's the current result - annnnnd leaving him for tomorrow.
