  1. 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 creation. I have basecoated him in Reaper Olive and added a light wash of Reaper Face Wash mixed with a small amount of Reaper Black Wash. I have a question about building up the highlights. Should I add a bit of yellow as I transition up to my highest points to give depth of colour? I have added base colours and just begun to bring up highlights on the skirts. I have only laid down base colours on these three. I am not certain that I like the colours on the skirts and am willing to strip these and start anew. I would appreciate advice in this matter. I like the contrast between the Goblins bulk and ferocity and the delicacy of the girls. This is a size comparison with the Ellen Stone I just finished. I have never painted anything smaller than 25mm so this is going to be a real challenge for me. This is for scale. I have not yet begun the Huntsman. My concerns for this are getting the highlights up enough and getting adequate separation between areas. I know I need to make the line between the girls tops and skirts clean and distinct. I was considering using a gold and doing a bit of free hand in that area.I still have many weaknesses as a painter, but I would like to do justice to these fine sculpts. Your critiques are most welcome.
  2. 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 :)
  3. 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 to figure out how he blended gold and green* A new division was created - Dioramas The first ever group diorama submission (from what i was told) There was a Dark Sword Miniatures Best in Show The Best In Show made people stop in their tracks and quote George Takei by saying.. "Oh My!" Derreck won his first Gold Sophie.... err wait a sec... i mean ANOTHER PAIR of Gold Sophie :) *well done sir, well done* And I am sure i missed something else in there somewhere. The two items which i am going to discuss here involve the new DIorama category AND the group submission! When i first asked Anne if anyone had done a groupo project and was told no, i was a little surprised. So i took a small idea that i had, mentioned it to the Reaper Paint club folks and it took off into the 39 miniature monster that was presented at the show. It was incredibly fun and winning a bronze for it, as a team, was rewarding beyond belief. So, after asking for permission and getting the go ahead, i hearby welcome all paint groups, clubs, gatherings, gaggles, hordes or whatever to join us next year for Paint Club submissions. Here are the rules and guidelines that we setup and followed, but we may tweak them a bit so please check back often: We only used Reaper Miniatures Has to be based on the theme of that ReaperCon Theme for 2014 is Wild West, but remember, Steam-punk variations are always welcome! Try to keep the size under 12"(W) X 12"(L) X 16"(H) (we failed in this part because apparently i cannot measure well) *Up for debate* No professional painters were allowed to paint anything, advise only Rule Eliminated by popular demand!! Try to keep each persons involvement to no more than 30% of the work (for smaller paint groups, this will be revised as necessary) I have not nailed down the prize for this yet. Perhaps a unique trophy which gets handed from paint group to paint group like the stanley trophy or something. Anyway, what do you guys think? Anyone interested? Any additional ideas or Rules? See you guys out there and PAINT ALL THE THINGS!!!!
  4. "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 emphasize the gruesome joy and confidence that this gnoll feels as he's stalking the battlefield. I imagined him at the front of a strike force, the apex of an evil army. He doesn't care about life or death, he doesn't even care about the outcome; his only concern is his personal glory and the next addition to his armor.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 sword hand converted to an empty hand. Chinese policeman #2 will be a compilation of two different figures, and a head from a boneyard sprue set: Body = 50006: Col. Edward Titchener, British Officer Arms = 50106: British Bobby Head = P50008B: Heads (middle one) + +
  8. 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 sculptures, anything from limestone to fel crystal. So far i can pull off a drybrushed grey stone look, but it would be terribly dull to repeat this 12 or so times - What tips or sites would you recommend for neat looking statues? - Do you have recommendations for the materials I should use for a particular deity?(eg- Erathis painted to look like marble) I plan to start a WIP thread when I can clear my slate to focus on this project, but here are the minis i have so far in no particular order: Bahamut: (2x) 03600: Praying Paladin, 65025: Praying Paladin Erathis: 50001: Sascha Dubois, Time Chaser Pelor: 02803: Brother Vincent Avandra: 60059: Harrower Corellon: 14450: Larnach, Grey Elf Mage Lolth: 02990: Crypt of the Vampiress Sehanine: 03352: Children of the Zodiac: Virgo Ioun: 03291: Heinz Stargazer Kord: 03309: Kord the Destroyer, Barbarian Moradin : None yet The Raven Queen: 60088: Cleric of Urgathoa Melora: 14274: Clarissa Banshee,Razig Mage Zehir: None yet
