  1. From the 10033, Mouslings Heroes Boxed Set here's; 03529B, Fenimore the Mousling Archer sculpted by Gene Van Horne.
  2. 03557, Valentines Mousling sculpted by Gene Van Horne. Painted up for the Valentine's Day contest.
  3. WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71625-oneboot-attempts-minivember-painting-a-mini-every-day-in-november/?p=1466407 I based my paint job of this little guy off of the peacock jumping spider (spoilered because spider): I'm very happy with how he turned out, even though it took me three times longer to paint him than I'd planned; painting freehand on a textured, curved surface is hard! You can see the orange strip here, though my camera is making it look more red than it actually is. Group shot! Peter spider
  4. In between working on my Summer Exchange piece, and a couple of pieces for one of my players, I found time for these little guys. As you know heroes come in all shapes and sizes. They were inspired by one of my favorite comics to date, MouseGuard by David Petersen. These were a blast to paint, and actually didn't take very long. I completed them over two nights - a week apart - during our paint and chat sessions online. We are planning to run a Mouseguard RPG game soon, so these might actually end up on the table. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did painting them! Also, sorry a
  5. For the Secret Sophie Exchange, my partner this year was Corporea. She asked for something fun and colorful (specifically blue, purple, and green). So it took me a while to come up with this idea, but one night in bed while I was mulling it over, the idea struck me that I'd use the surfer dude I had and the coral mermaid I had on hand. With him on a beach and her on a sandbar, a modern meets fantasy type of scene. I purposely left the figures shiny as they were (or are) in the water. Used iridescent medium on the mermaid's scales to give them a glittering/shimmering look. All the marine li
  6. I recently finished a set of several spider centaurs and a big spider demoness as part of my conga line of year-end finishing projects. These are two male "arachnid warrors" with some sort of eldritch swords. I had a lot of fun painting them. WIP thread here. Companion pieces: 77180: Shaerileth, Spider Demoness and 77182: Arachnid Archer
  7. This is one of the first batch of miniatures my husband got me after I got back into painting them. It's a fun, weird little set, with something like a lecturer or doctor and a useful anatomical skeleton specimen. The skeleton comes with its stand only so I glued it to a penny.
  8. So I got my Reaper Order a couple of days ago and inside was a "treat" from Reaper for their Ghoulie Bag. The treat consisted of a Giant Spider and a Sword/Board Skeleton. I figured, I needed a break from serious work for a few hours and decided that the skeleton was a perfect size to fit on the spider, so I went to work sculpting a saddle/seat for the skeleton to be placed on the spider so that he was mounted. I then thought to myself this is for grins and giggles, so that's their names! I present to you a very quick (for me) tabletop (didn't worry about mold lines) modification of a spi
  9. Been playing with the Bones Agramon for awhile now in my WIP. Finally got him to a point where I'm happy enough with it. C&C Welcome. http://www.coolminiornot.com/390239​ Edit to fix photos.
  10. This is one of six Mouslings I've painted out of the ten new ones from the Bones II Kickstarter. I'm a little ambivalent about the "girly" Mouslings with the bosoms and the hair and the feminine accoutrements. I prefer to think of the Mouslings overall as general-purpose, could be boys or girls. Anyhow, this one, like the rest of them, has fun and not too fiddly details. WIP thread here. Other painted Mouslings: 92743, Archer (Robin Hood), 92744, Druid, 92746, Thief, 92747, Beekeeper, 92749, Assassin
  11. This is one of the new Bones Mouslings from Reaper's second Kickstarter. I painted up six (out of ten) of them for a campaign. Two of them are archers. This one is sculpted up like a tiny Robin Hood. WIP thread here. Other painted Mouslings: 92744, Druid, 92745, Archer (squire), 92746, Thief, 92747, Beekeeper, 92749, Assassin
  12. This is one of six Mouslings from the Bones II Kickstarter that I have painted up as characters. This is a druid with an orb on a staff and the tiniest chibi frog imaginable on top. WIP thread here. The other Mouslings: Thief, Beekeeper, Assassin, Ranger (with Bow), Archer (Robin Hood)
  13. So I'm painting up some of the Bones II Mouslings to be used as ship's crew and NPCs in a fairly weird game. These aren't all of them. There's also a mouse king and queen (with pointy hat with veil), a samurai, and a classic wizard, all nice but not quite for my purposes. To be honest, I have mixed feelings about the buxom little "girl" mice. I prefer to think of all Mouslings as something you'd have to be a mouse to tell the difference, like in real life. But gosh, they are cute. At the moment I am referencing real mice for coloring. One Mousling is going to be black, one whit
  14. Here my mouseling I refer to as The Red Rogue (aka Mouseling Assassin). I felt the idea that this is a rascal not an assassin. So I went with a darker red that would never really be able to hide in shadows well, because he never really wants to hide. I had this guy finished for several months, except for the blade. I finally just decided to suck it up and finish this little guy tonight. The photo's are not the best, I think I'll spend some more time tommorrow to get some better shots. Now the Red Rogue: Feel free to give any C&C you feel inspired to post.
  15. I just finished up on this one, I did it as a small commission and favor for one of my D&D buddies who will use this particular figure for his Tuesday night games. Slight modification with a weapon head swap from the original earth breaker to the axe head. Painted it up in about 5-6 hours today, I call it table top+ as there are some things on here beyond a normal tabletop job and I wanted to get it done fairly quickly. Name: Shoanti Barbarian Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures SKU: 60115 Sculpted by: Gene Van Horne Material: Metal WIP Thread C&C are welcomed and appreci
  16. Today, I'm going to try to get this guy painted up. I have the entire day/evening to do so and I need to get it done before Saturday so I can give it to one of my D&D buddies who is going to use it as a PC in another game (a small commission and I'm giving him a discount as a friend). He's requested it be a bit above tabletop with a weapon swap (so Tabletop+ is what I'm going for). I want to try to get it painted all up in 4-5 hours. Name: Shoanti Barbarian Manufacturer: Reaper Miniatures SKU: 60115 Sculpted by: Gene Van Horne I've already got him on his base, primed up, and wea
  17. I love this miniature of a Russian Sniper sculpted by Gene Van Horne. I had it on my To Paint very soon list since I bought her, finally got around to finishing her up. I did not attempt to make the uniform historically accurate. Talking real history, in 1943, Russia had 2000 female snipers. The most famous of them was Liudmyla Mykhailivna Pavlychenko (July 12, 1916 – October 10, 1974). Credited with 309 kills, she is regarded as the most successful female sniper in history.

  19. My harrower from Pathfinder. I like the sculpt and would love to do it again when I can do it more justice. For now I practiced Freehand on the cards. They don't look great,but I'm happy to have practiced it.
  20. Hey there all, This is my first time painting a miniature; I have always wanted to do it and just never did. So finally a group of my friends and I set up a game of Pathfinder and I needed a mini for my character. This presented the perfect opportunity for me to try my had at painting a miniature. I tried out a few different techniques, layering, drybrushing, oil wash and like the final product. Any constructive criticisms would be appreciated. Cheers all, Will
  21. A while ago I bought Sarah the Seeress to represent one of the PCs in a D&D game I'm in. So far I've painted minis to represent every other PC in the game and our poor cleric has been using the only unpainted mini. This needs to be rectified. The requirements are that the character is blonde with green eyes, reasonably wealthy and needs to be wearing clerical robes that are red with black accents. I've got a good start on the face & hair and I've base coated the clothing. Now come the tricky elements, in particular how do I make that lace trim look right in black? Normally I'
  22. It felt like painting something out of my childhood with this (I'll confess to being really into the whole Drow thing for a while for the very, very obvious reason): This was my second Bones piece (I painted one of the IMEF guys for my brother, as he thinks it's cool I'm painting and is supporting my whimsy and wanted some space marines as he's a huge Mass Effect fan; still have another to do). It really seems to paint differently than the metal, but maybe I'm just imagining it. I'm following the general guidelines I see for them, but anyway. Could NOT find one of these painted to
  23. So yes, I have actually been painting stuff, even though I haven't been good about updating my WIP. Here's my latest. Comments and critiques eagerly desired. Anything to get better is a good thing, even if it means pointing out everything I did wrong.
  24. I need a better photo set up, but until I can take pictures under better lighting conditions these will do
  25. Happy birthday, o accomplished sculptor!
