  1. How do you make an octopus laugh? You give him ten tickles! Wanted to show off this little octopus that I sculpted from some leftover green stuff. I don't have much experience with sculpting other than a few simple embellishments on minis and a couple of snake swarms I made once. Wanted to try something relatively simple and figured an octopus would be pretty forgiving. You can see more about how I made this guy and more of my nautical minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE. I sculpted and painted this guy in two evenings and am happy with hos cute it turned o
  2. Karla, Anime Heroine https://www.reapermini.com/search/anime/latest/50232 is a beautiful sculpt, but the miniskirt would raise eyebrows in my pulp/midcentury settings, so I gave her a bit of a hemline extension with GreenStuff. I'm also planning to use some eyelets and pins to turn at least one gun into a syringe. Will post more as progress continues. Stay safe and healthy!
  3. Not sure if this belongs here or under conversions but since I need help/feedback on the sculpting, I figured here was better. I am adding puffy sleeves to a figure and I am very much a novice when it comes to sculpting. I have been working on one and while it looks good to me, I need a second opinion. What do you guys think?
  4. Hi everyone, Now that the contest is over, here are more pictures of my converted 77038, Hell Hound. The original sculpt is by Ben Siens. This was my entry in Reaper's Facebook Convert and Paint contest. Khan is my elf riding dog in our D&D campaign. The contest was the perfect pretexte to make this conversion. I first removed all the spikes and flames on the hound's back. I then built the armor and saddle using green stuff and a paperclip. The chest is from Reaper's 02638, adventuring accessories. There were amazing entries in the contest and I managed to get an honorable mention. Thanks
  5. I started a D&D campaign for my son and some of his friends, and using it as an excuse to acquire and paint some new minis. Here is my son's Tiefling sorcerer (sorceress?)The plan: We don't really like the "combat bikini" on this one, so I am going to attempt to add, well something to it. It won't be great, probably wont even look good, but hey I'm only trying to get better, so please comment, critique, advise, instruct, and what not. Going with a light purple skin because its for a Tiefling character, and I think purple is an interesting color to paint. Turquoise colored garments as a c
  6. The clay golem. So overmuscled! So cantankerous-looking! So versatile for conversions! It's probably cliche at this point, thinking this guy would make a great Edward Hyde. But that doesn't make it wrong! Some green stuff tatters, a grommet, and a pin, and here we are. Look at that savage hairy-knuckled brute! For my Western game, set in the 1870s-ish, I made a spinoff cleric-like class, the Sawbones, for healers that prefer Mad Science to religion; people like Dr. Moreau, or Dr. Jekyll, or Dr. Frankenstein, or Dr. Herbert West. The 59009 lady scientist is the mini my Sawbones player u
  7. I have been planning a few ore photo stages. The Trio of Trees will be movable props, & character actors in the cast. They will eventually appear in somewhat fancier surroundings, but for their first presentation, they are seen here on my work table: The Philosopher or Idiot...take your pick: The Conversation, Monk & Tree: AND the Group Portrait: ...if you go out in the Woods today, you're in for a big surprise.
  8. This years Halloween Treat to myself was a Skeletal Plastic Mouse from World Market. I couldn't resist; re, it was Oh-So-Cool, whimsically cute, & inexpensive enough not to cause guilt tripping. It was only when I got it home that the ears & nose registered as being singularly unskeleton like. SO I decided to Zombie it up with some patches of rotting flesh & hair. Here is the results: This is The Mouse at an early stage of development with Leo Sizechek for an idea of just how big the Little Fellow is: There you have it...so to speak.
  9. .."whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouse, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos gets such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people's hats off - then I account it high time"...to make some more Mushrooms....Ismail & I approach the problem differently A few days ago, the symptoms began to ap
  10. See this post... I just tried something new, but have talked about it here and there, about using Greenstuff to sculpt stuff that you want to paint, but before assembly.... It seems to work! Can't seem to get it to quote across threads....
  11. SO, SisterMaryNapalm came across some Beastes to stick into flower pots: AND thought my Mushrooms would be just the thing to enliven his Mom's flower pots. Here's where they stood as of Tuesday: He wanted them to be somewhere between 10" to a foot. The BBQ skewers were just the thing: The stems & eyes were done by Tuesday evening: Losing a day to World Series Game 7, the green stuffing started earlier today: More later...later being a nebulous term.
  12. The crunch of heavy feet, a terrified scream, & a hardy "Hi Neighbor!", it's the Mutatant Mushroom (I'd like to add from HELL! here, but he's just ambling out of The Spooky Woods). SO yet-another Mushroom to brighten your day & disturb your sleep; seen here with the source of the terrified screams strolling through the woods ...from a couple of different yet similar angles: ...watching from above: ...AND being watched right back: ..."if you go out in the Woods today"...I
  13. There is something strange afoot at the Cemetery of St. Lascivious...stranger than normal if that is possible. "Did you hear something?" "NO! And I didn't see it either!": ...over there something moved: ...It is coming to get us!: There now that wasn't SO bad; now was it? With the story told here is a better look at the Reaper: AND with The Ritual: ...for continuity & size comparison
  14. I was in the process of painting up a small horde of my Mushroom Folk when a group of them suggested a possible vignette...they didn't actually offer a suggestion; it was their appearance that did it...I think. SO I did a few haunted tombstones, grabbed a Tree Beasty, made a base, AND took a LOT of photos which I will inflict on you momentarily. The vignette brings to my mind the "stop the ritual" scenario from Mordheim, here is The Ritual that needs stopping:
  15. My box of figures from DSM for their Stephanie Law kickstarter came in. They're gorgeous. Many of them are in multiple pieces and need assemble. These are too pretty for me to half-donkey assembly. I have classic super glue. I have green stuff. What are your preferred methods to attach arms and whatnot so there aren't gaps and whatnot? How do you avoid slopping the superglue around swiftly before it hardens? Toothpicks perhaps? Some of these joints are very fine, so I don't think I can really pin them. They aren't heavy, so that has to help, and they do h
  16. This is an idea that has been festering in a particularly fertile & equally peculiar corner of my mind. AND now it comes forth as something REALLY SILLY; i.e., my latest kit-bashing creation. the Infamous Goblin Faerie: ...he will probably wind up hovering over some suitably annoyed Mushroom.
  17. Take it easy on me, this is just my seventh mini to paint with three of them being a set of identical orcs. First time trying green stuff any tips for improvements or things you think I did well would be much appreciated. Trying to figure out what worked and what didn't. This is Archon the Aasimar Warlock and his familiar (which has yet to be named). He was taken as a youth by a fiend for his celestial blood. On the brink of corruption he was rescued by a paladin of the Raven Queen. The Raven Queen then took over his pact and he now serves her hunting those who would defy the natur
  18. One of the Fellow from the Lead Adventure Forum gave me a link to Bog's Miniatures on FaceBook. Their ambulatory Mushrooms were so like my stationary ones that I had to give them a try. This is the result: Emerging from the depths of Heep's Caverns, The Meandering Mushroom Mob: The Lantern: The Wizard: The Flunky: ANDThe Muscle: ...Than Gang with a shot of the setting at Heep's: ...they may not see any games, but t
  19. SO I had these two twigs mounted & primed for ages...well awhile at any rate. Since I did up a Tree with Attitude for a Fellow D.M. Craft Forumite, I thought I'd give the twigs the treatment: Seen here on my Work Table, a once around The Trees: ...now to the closeups: ...the Hermit (Dark Hold Minion), all 10 mm of him: ...AND a couple of photos by the Witches' Shanty Town: The Twins wil
  20. The combination of Gnoblar & Night Goblin produces a miniature perfectly suited for the downtrodden life style. I usually give them names like Beastly Burden. In this instance, it was pointed out to me that the Little Sufferer had quit an attitude AND a Big Club to back it up. The theme from The Marat/Sade started playing through my head; ergo, he became Robespierre. To showcase him, he is seen hear on his journey to Heep's Place, renowned for it's mushroom distilled beverage, caverns, & bat poop farm...it's like a pilgrimage to the Jack Daniel's Distillery: ...
  21. Here is my entries for the Valentines / Love theme Contest. I couldn't think up a nice, sweet entry.....so went with a theme....Playing with Your Heart. I was in luck that Fangaud, included in my Secret Sophie gift the Familiar Pack XI. Which had two perfect minis to customize a little for the contest. I love all the Familiar Packs, they have such cute lil figures, with so much detail, in tiny lil packages. First One.....Lil Demon, Playing Heart Hopscotch.... Second One....Cute Demoness, With her Heart Yoyo....the ups and downs of love... This lil Lady needed a
  22. Alright. So, I decided I was going to play too. Why not? It's fun, and Mr. Bold is not large. Very relaxing, after Khanjira. >.> Anyway. We all know what the original looks like, so... on to the modification! My GS-fu is still pretty weak, but I pulled some out and mushed it about and began sculpting a credible pepper over Mr. Bold's sword. Because, really, why cut it off if it provides a functional armature?! After some wrapping and squishing and delicate tool use (I suspect one of said tools is visible there in the background), I had the start of a functional sort of
  23. SO I started on the Village. It's not so much a try at juggling as a break from the Garden tedium...also something to do as washes dry. All that aside, here's the first of the Village Hovel's. Scary Mary's very much W.I.P. place: ...AND Scary Mary, Herself: ...the day is still young; so there may be more...or not; re, I am still old.
  24. SO, now with some of the inhabitants done, the Twisted Tower, & Village calling for some paint, AND a good idea how I want the Garden, it's time to get to it. I started the Flowers last night; ...thus far today, I've finished the faces. I'll be puttering with the leaves & a couple of other things. Hopefully there will be more photos tonight.
  25. Hey folks! Last month I worked on a Bones Altar of Evil (77139) and was surprised to find that the back was hollow. (Wip here) As shown in the wip, I used apoxie sculpt with the instant mold to make a 'back side' for the figure. Last night I was experimenting with the 50% Apoxie Sculpt / Green Stuff mix that Tail spinner talks about in the pinned putty post, and found that this mixture works very well with the instant mold. It goes into the mold well, holds the details, separates easily, and is easily sandable, and the flash was easy to remove with an X-Acto knife. It is not as br
