  1. Hi all! this is my end of the year "here be dragons" diorama contest entry, fresh off the paint table this morning. this mini was salvaged from a three year stay at the shelf of shame and was begging to be worked on. the contest was a perfect excuse to do just that. originally i had been over ambitious with the level of detail work i wanted to do, and a thousand scales later and it hit the shelf. to get it how i had envisioned it (each scale as a gem) was just too much work and at the time my skill with that technique was much worse. over time the age of the PJ showed. i briefly considered s
  2. This is my Here be Dragons! Entry, in MORE than four pictures, for you to comment on. C&C is more than welcome. I tried a lot of things, most of them new to me (OSL, TMM, NMM, dry pigments, smooth gradients, pushing the contrast more and more and moooore), but I am very very happy with the results! Here you can check the long WIP thread. A lot of my ideas are exposed there. Thanks for watching! Edited to add the Diorama Entry Thread intro story: ---------------- Princess Arleine was not a happy girl. She was an enthusiastic, over-the-top 114-year-old child, daughter of Ma
  3. Hello everybody! I am working hard on a diorama to, if I get it done in time, submit to the Here be Dragons! competition. I have a lot of pics from the start, but I hit a problem tonight and wanted to ask the forum for opinions and advice. The diorama will tell a story. To test the idea, I won't tell you what, and if you can guess it then the story is well shown to the public :) Some pics: That was "version 1" of my idea. Of course, cleaning of minis (removing bases) and sculpting needed to be done (I cleaned the minis already, sculpting flames is next). I was
  4. This diorama is called Inharmonius, and is in support of human rights in China. It was inspired by the documentary Ai Wei Wei, Never Sorry, which I think every artist should watch. Figures are all Reaper (policemen heavily converted). See WIP thread here. Meaning of the symbols: Three Children: Violation of China's one-child policy Door Number: 9413: (gau2 sei2 yat1 saang1 in Cantonese) – nine die to one live, meaning 90% chance of being dead and only 10% chance of being alive, or survived from such situations (a narrow escape). Wall Art: Literally: the Changjiang River waves be
  5. Disclaimer; I don't own any of these pictures and trees. Just want to share my growing interest for Bonsais. Has anyone of you ever tried that as a terrain piece or on a diorama? I like the idea of including a bonsai tree to a diorama and I hope to do it in a future work. Any tips on the subject?
  6. I completed my tool bots. I used these colours and the scenic backgrounds because they are Pulp figures. This is not my best work, but sometimes you have to let people see your work even when it stinks.. I have a W.I.P. on these little guys here http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/49983-olearys-wip-thread-of-everything-reaper/page-4#entry751524 I'd been without sleep for 48 hours when I was finishing these and there are seams and white bits on those crates. A bit of angry bodging went on there, but it got done. The bases, well I have no good excuse for those.
  7. Last night was the first night in a while that I haven't HAD to go back to work. Not the first night I've not bothered to go back to work. There's a difference. I'm salaried, so when work needs to get done ... you go and do it ... unless you are physically exhausted, then you take a nap and then you go and do it. So, last night I delved back into my dungeon workshop and set to cleaning the clutter that occurs over time and setting the work space back to "cleared" and workable. The dungeon, or basement, suffered some flooding a while back so I had to move stuff off the floor and move stuff
  8. From a very early age, I had no parents...as my profile states...I have been married to a wonderful lady for (40+) years...her father became the closest thing to my having a " dad " and with all my love and respect through his living years...I called him " pop ". I built this piece as a nostalgic memory of that wonderful man (T.O. Dunn). T. O. Dunn Junkyard & Salvage: Vintage pickup truck...at the gas pump is a Wheelworks metal miniature truck kit. Rusted junk car...car in work area...tractor...are all die-cast toys that have been reworked. Human figures...are all Preiser figures
  9. Well it only took about 8 months but I finally finished it. This is a present for my sister, was going to be Christmas but instead now it's a birthday. The dwarf is from Center Stage and the elf is from Feeblades. You can see the WIP here. Didn't get to work on the elf as much as I would have liked, he's got about half the amount of time into him as the dwarf but since I painted them up six months apart I was able to use some of the improved (ie quicker) techniques so while it was half the time it's not quite as noticeable (though I really need a few more hours). The only real place
  10. Since shortly after the Kickstarter funding period ended, I've known I wanted to attempt a diorama of some kind with one of the dragons I ordered. Now that the package has arrived, and there's an ongoing dragon diorama contest open until the end of the year, I need to actually move from random idea in my head to actual execution. However, I've never attempted something like this before, so it's a bit intimidating. It's probably going to be a challenge for me to finish this by the year end. However, if I can get over a couple of the major hurdles, it may go quicker than I expect. This t
  11. I must say that I am quite nervous about posting this work here as there are so many fine painters at this forum. However, this work is very important to me personally and I have no one in my real life to help me. I would like to have input early on as I am willing to strip a figure as many times as it takes to get it right. I am using the Ballerina Princess Fairy Infantry, a Goblin archer and a Wood Elf Huntsman with 2 dogs to tell a story. It will be told from the perspective of myself as a child sitting alone in the woods dreaming fantastical dreams and living in a world of her own crea
  12. Otherwise titled by my daughter as: Zombie Friends Are Bowling Together Dedicated to my awesome little girl. She loves Scooby Doo and is fascinated with all of my plastic D&D junk. Funny seeing things from a much younger point of view. 4 Reaper minis were painted for this. The 2 ghasts, the archway/crypt gate and the Hero ranger. A bit R rated...Hope you enjoy :)
  13. Hey everyone!!! WHAT A CON!!!!!!! First off i have to give kudos to the Reaper Miniatures Team for pulling together a great ReaperCon in the midst of the HUGELY successful Bones Kickstarter!! Being local to the company I can testify that every able body was involved from the volunteers helping sort out bones to the man who signs the checks. And now for the meat of this post. As many people who attended this RC know, there wer a few firsts in the paint competition: Youth division is now able to win medals The youngest painter (14 months) won a certificate *and his dad is STILL trying t
  14. "The Veteran" (Silver Medal) This miniature was my 1st time painting simulated battle damage. The goal was to make him look like a rugged veteran who leads with the javelin but favors the shield. His armor is piecemail due to battle damage so severe from prior conflicts that he's had to substitute armor from felled enemies. I realized he was a Warlord figure too late after putting him on a round base, but I think the round base actually works nicely with the piece overall. I spent a lot of time on his face and eyes, b/c he has a really wicked appearance overall but wanted to really emp
  15. This little diorama took about a month or so to paint and I enjoyed each moment. My son (5) chose the color scheme and this is the first time I've used the bendable trees. I'm really proud of it :) Enjoy! Excuse the shininess as it's been varnished.
  16. Here's another diorama from my archives painted long ago. This one is Ral Partha's Black Dragon of Fire and Darkness painted as a brown desert Dragon. Three Citadel Snotlings are chasing a snake at the back. The base is made of wood covered with carved expanded foam and natural sand.
  17. This work is going to be a diorama in support of human rights in China. In particular, it will protest their horrendous one-child policy. The scene will feature a mother, defending her three children from Chinese police. At this point, I'm still at the planning stage. I would love any advice or ideas you all might have to share! Mother will be 50260: Xiufang, Femme Fatale Children will be the girl, baby, and the boy on the far right from 03233: Townsfolk: Children. Chinese policeman #1 will be 50036: Saburo Aritomo, Meiji Japanese Officer, with the mustache removed, and the
  18. Hey folks, sometime in the near future i plan to make a series of shrines for the major gods in the D&D universe(my experience is limited to 4th ed lore). Each shrine will be around 2*2 to 4*4 squares large and primarily feature a statue in the likeness of said god. By divine guidance, I have already selected and aquired most of the miniatures from Reaper and I have msot of the building blocks I think i need from Hirst Arts. My question to the Council of Brushlords and Brushladies would be regarding the look of these statues. Im looking to get a reasonable variety in the look of the sculpt
