  1. I needed a female human archer to complete my new Frostgrave warband, so I thought I'd see if I could make one using the pieces from the North Star plastic Frostgrave soldiers set. While I've heard it said that since the clothing on these figures is so bulky that any of them could be used as women, since the figure's shape wouldn't show through all the clothing layers anyway, I like it when figures that are supposed to be female actually look like a woman. I didn't want to just sculpt breasts on one of the existing figures either, as I'm not a very good sculptor. So I thought about where I could find a female torso to use; and turned to either the Wargames Factory Amazon set, or Female Zombie set. I didn't think the armor on the Amazons looked right for Frostgrave, so I selected one of the female zombie bodies from a spare sprue I had. I cut the the female zombie in half at the waist, and then cut one of the Frostgrave soldier bodies in half as well. I then glued the top of the zombie to the bottom of the Frostgrave soldier. There is a significant size difference in the two waists, so my plan was to hide this shortfall with some of the many accessories that come with the Frostgrave Soldier set. I added a head from the female zombie set, and then arms from the Frostgrave Soldier set. I needed to trim the upper arms a little as the shoulder areas on the female zombie torso are a bit smaller than the shoulder areas on the Frostgrave Soldier arms. In the end, the bulky arms help hide the narrowness of the waist. I glued a backpack to her back, and a quiver on her front hip to aid in hiding the smaller waist.
  2. This is another of my ReaperCon Painters entries. It is the Hunter from Kabuki Models and one that I decided to use to practice painting red. I originally was not going to do blood effects but since she is carrying heads in the bag, I thought to give it a go. I went a little crazy with the blood, it started with some on the heads and axe but then I thought she surely would have gotten some on her. Well it may be excessive but I kind of like it and it inspired the name "Reason for Red".
  3. I finally got around to taking show-off photos of my ReaperCon entries. I had quite a few so I will not be posting them all at once. First up is one of my entries in the Painter's category. I had three entries in this category and this was the one chosen for judging. She is the Wood Elf Goddess from Dark Sword. She is the start of a tradition for me to enter the Dark Sword freebie from the ReaperCon swagbag into the contest the following year, she was the one from 2015. I pictured her in the ruins of a building that the forest has reclaimed and I used ruins from Morland Studios that I roughed up a little. I made the tree out of wire and Vallejo's plastic putty and while it is not perfect, it was my first tree. I am still not happy with the foliage but it was the only kind I had and when I realized it, it was too late to get a different color in time. I had issues with the feathers and major issues with the gem on the staff but the green cloth turned out exactly how I wanted. Also I think this is my best skin to date. She got me a Silver medal and I received great feedback from both Rhonda Bender and Jessica Rich. Any feedback from you guys would be greatly appreciated.
  4. I painted Reaper 03613 Angelica Fairweather. In my Lost World Project she is Rosetta Salazar, WIP here : http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/
  5. Picked her up at Reapercon. Had hoped to have her done by Thanksgiving, but... stuff. Enjoy.
  6. Lady Andaisin was defeated tonight by Unit04 and the other members of "The People's Champions" (aka, The PCs) She was a fairly quick job, mostly letting the airbrush do the hard work, then glazing over with inks and translucent paints. I've got another mini queued up for posting as soon as my players encounter it...
  7. Inarah

    The Lioness

    I thought this was a cool figure and picked it up in one of the DGS kickstarters. She's got some fiddly spots but was generally a joy to paint.
  8. I was still learning how to take pics with the new camera, but these came out pretty good. Killed my eyes painting this after another very small Tengu model, but she is was worth it. Originally I was hoping my friend could use it in his Dragon Island campaign, but she did not make it into the story. Really pretty model though, love the pose.
  9. This is what I decided to do today while the football game was on.. The issue I'm having right now is threefold: First, I mixed Pearl White and Bloodless skin for the horns, but just don't think that looks right.. Any suggestions (my white(ish) color palette is pretty limited) would be awesome.. Second, I have no idea what color to use for the haft of the mace - it doesn't seem like it should be wood, but there's already a lot of iron and blacks in the mini.. Third, the hooves.. what sort of color mix do people use for replicating hooves.. Colors used: skin - a concoction of clotted red, black, tanned skin and a bit of flame red that I'll never be able to replicate again. armor - shadowed steel mace ball - adamantium black bace chain - blackened steel hair and pants (i converted the thong to skintight leggings with a bit of liquid green - my little kids see enough crack on TV without it being on my desk too) - black
  10. Hello fellow Forumites! I always enjoy coming back from ReaperCon, as my creative battery has been recharged and I'm ready to paint again! I'm currently working on a special project for someone who plays fierce female barbarian brawlers in her Dungeons & Dragons campaigns. I'm even painting it in her image, complete with upper leg tattoos. Reaper's "Viking Girl" sculpted by Bobby Jackson was the perfect choice for this! I'm still not convinced I can pull off this freehand tattoos, but I try something new in every project and I can always paint over it in skin tone if it becomes too overwhelming. I'm using Reaper's Highland Moss & Pale Lichen for the cloak. After taking Rhonda Bender's "Level Up" class at ReaperCon, I've decided to experiment with more interesting shadow colors in my minis. In the past, I would have chosen a dark olive green for the shadows of the cloak, however, this time I've mixed the mid tone Highland Moss with a touch of Nightshade Purple for the darkest folds and recesses of her cloak. After that, I started to layer in more of the midtone color mixed with Pale Lichen (~50//50 mix). I blend as I go and make my way up to Pale Lichen on the highlights of the folds. While I may go up an additional level of highlight, mixing in some Pure White with Pale Lichen, I'll see how much contrast I have on other sections of the mini once she's almost done. Either way, the back of the cloak could use some additional smooth blending, so I'll be sure to revisit that at a later time. Here's what I've painted so far, each step follows each set of images starting from top to bottom. Step 1: Basecoats & shadows for cloak, hair and gems Step 2: Cloak highlights. Repeat steps 1 & 2 on front loincloth-cloak thingy. Blend, blend, blend... Step 3: Hair highlights (more to come), fur, gems, jewelry & starting on the sword Next up is finishing her sword, then boots, gloves and shield. And then maybe I'll consider giving her some dirt on the bottom of her cloak as a final touch (if I can bring myself to smear pigment over something I've painstakingly blended lol) However, I'm having a hard time deciding where to place her eyes since her hair covers a portion of each eyeball, which makes it especially tricky. I'll need to make sure to leave enough white sclera in each eye to make the direction clear. I'm leaning toward painting her looking left, toward her sword, like she's threatening someone or pointing at something on the ground. What do you think?
  11. Over the weekend I finished up Yephima, Female Cloud Giant, from the Bones 1 Kickstarter Storm Giants set. So, she is listed in the Reaper online store as a Cloud Giant, but in the Kickstarter she was part of the Storm Giant set; so I debated which direction to go with her, and decided to go with the Storm Giant look. Next, I looked up the description of Storm Giants in my old D & D Monster Manual, and found out they can have violet skin and can have blue-black hair. Sounded like a nice painting challenge to me! Well, the purple skin and silver-grey eyes take some getting use to, but otherwise I'm quite happy how she turned out. :) Just two figures left to paint in my Bones 1 Kickstarter Paint and Post blogging challenge! For the complete step-by-step painting article on my blog, see: Yephima
  12. I bought this nice Vinyl RESIN kit from Solarwind. Countess Karnstein. It will take a while before I proceed, But I thought..start the WIP to keep the flow going.. Just a few shots of her compared to Reaper's Elise Pumpkin Witch for size comparison, and a shot next to my ( almost finished ) Legendarion Bust. The Countess is a large Bust.

  14. Hey all, Wanted to take a break from painting big stompy robots (CAVs) and get back into something with curves. Someone in my pathfinder group just made a new character, a female slayer... So I used that as motivation to paint up this awesome sculpt. I looked around and got heavy inspiration from these two posts by Pingo and Evilcoatrack: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61985-scáthach-scotswoman-warrior-77389-highland-heroine/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69147-77389-highland-heroine-wip/ I decided to try a few new things with this mini, including thinning using matte medium, and a tartan pattern. Tartan is really hard to make look good... If anyone had any tips, I am all ears. I just finished the hair and am really happy with how it came out, and this is probably the best face I have ever done as well (with eyes, no less!). In fact, the irises went on a bit thick, so there is a little dollop that creates a shadow under strong light to mimic a pupil ... Kind of like the opposite of what Roman sculptures do. A fortunate accident. Anyway, C and C appreciated. I reckon I'll have her done by the end of the week. I'll be trying nmm on the sword and shields. Pingo and Evilcoatrack, thanks for the inspiration!!!
  15. This is Reaper's 03681: Nazera Bloodraven, Vampire. I love her sculptural forms. Whichever way she is turned, there is some interesting movement going on. Bobby Jackson did a lovely job sculpting her. I used iridescent interference blues and violets on her armor. I am thinking about discussing how I paint reds. WIP thread here.
  16. I took my inspiration for this mini heavily from Natalya Melnik's (Alexi-Z) version. Fantastic mini to paint.
  17. I present to you Rasia Bladedancer. I stumbled across her while looking up Rasia from LTPK 5. I thought she looked really cool. While I loved painting her, I still haven't grown in love with basing. Mostly this is from not being good at it, yet. I just finally just decided to call it done. Here is what I settled on calling my Rasia Bladedancer done. Thanks for any C & C you feel inspired to leave. It is always appreciated.
  18. So, I got this lovely in the swag bag - spoilered, because kind of large image. At least, when I finally post this, it will be spoilered. As suggested in the acquisitions thread, I'mma post a picture. ^^; All I know is that it's female, it's carrying what looks like a staff, and it looks like she has the comedy/tragedy masks hanging from her belt. It may not be fantasy, but ... I'm at a loss here. Can't find her on their website, and I looked. :/ If I posted it in the wrong section, feel free to move it. ^^; Much thanks, I appreciate any help.
  19. Picked this up on E-Bay because she fits an NPC in my game. Photography is not one of my strong points. I did her base with static grass and a skull on the ground in front of her (not in the pic). I thought the skin came out nice.
  20. The Spirit of Spring. I realized I didn't have anything painted up specifically for ReaperCon, and decided to get something worked up. Last time I entered, I got the certificate of participation. This time, I'm hoping to place bronze. I'm not stressing it too much, though. If I don't make it, I'll just ask why and keep trying.
  21. I have located my camera! But, no lightbox, so the lighting is fairly harsh. Anyway, after packing up for the move, moving, unpacking, and then kinda sorta finding a place to paint I decided to get back into the swing of things with a quick tabletop mini. I was wanting to take another shot at the bronze skin triad, but I'm about out of minis that show a lot of skin. Fortunately I still had one half naked barbarian left from the kickstarter. Here are a couple I can post And here are a couple you'll need to follow the links. I have to say, this is the worst I've done on a face in quite a while but I just wasn't interested in smoothing things out and redoing the eyes. My copy had a "Bones nose" but I assume in metal there is more definition. 1 2

    Sonja's Sisters

    I picked up 2608: Tyden at a paint-n-take, this is what my painting looks like when I don't have glasses: So I repainted her. I also found 2773 Tana in my box of figures, and thought this would be a good companion piece. Front view NSFW
  23. This is one of a pot-luck batch of modern adventurer women figures I got from RAFM, a real mixed bag. Some of them are terrific, some ... kind of goofy. This one seems to fall a bit closer to the goofy end. She is in a pose my martial arts friend called "Kill Me Now", and her face is rather unfortunately flattened front-to-back. I figured I'd paint her up quickly tabletop style for use as a mook or opponent. I did get a little bored painting her just plain, though, so I gave her Goth-Egyptian makeup.
