  1. So depending on how much you pay attention to memes, you may be aware of one very popular one called "Somebody toucha my spaghet!" I couldn't tell you why that's what popped into my head back in October when @ladystorm first posted about her contest, but I tend to just accept that my brain comes up with really dumb ideas and just have fun with it. So, I present to you: Somebody toucha my spaghyeti! I had a TON of fun painting this guy! The kid (who toucha his spaghyeti) came from 03233: Townsfolk X: Children, sculpted
  2. I finished up this lovely lady last night. She was wonderfully sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. I really enjoyed the details on her and she was a lot of fun to paint. I always mean to paint a Halloween figure before Halloween but am usually too busy to actually manage it. I got this figure while at Reapercon though and decided it was meant to be, so I put aside a couple of other things to make time for her. I had a lot of technical issues with her due to my clumsiness - I dropped her THREE times which resulted in extensive repair w
  3. I have a very large collection of Kingdom Death models. I think they're absolutely gorgeous and they are generally in an art style that I adore. Unfortunately, though I've continued buying them, I have not painted a single one. It's been a combination of fear of assembling them (they're notoriously fiddly - this model was in 8 pieces) and a fear of painting them because they're such beautiful figures and they're expensive as well, so there's added pressure tacked onto messing them up. So I decided that it was time to face my fears and get one painted. Since this particular figure is one t
  4. Hi, friends! In continuing with our plan to catch up with painting the Dungeon Dwellers as a joint WIP together as they come out, can I interest you in some Baran Blacktree? Buglips and I will be painting him in our usual fashion, but if you haven't already, make sure that you check out Rhonda Bender's awesome PDF painting guide for him here: Dungeon Dwellers Y'all probably know by now how these go, but if not, check out our Thanis the Bonecaller thread where it all began and that'll give you links to all of the other joint WIP threads we've done.
  5. Hi friends! We have another project to share with you in our continuing series where Buglips and I paint the same figure using our own very different from each other approaches to miniature painting. If you're not familiar with this series, you can check out our previous topics: 03100: Thanis the Bonecaller 01614: Con Crud 2017 Convention Zombie 02818: Bugbear Warrior For this project, we decided to paint Scorpius Rex Dracus, which is an older figure in the back catalog of Reaper - just look at the number! 02017! He's one of the OG's of the Reaper catalog! Our usual
  6. So I finished this guy up. I kinda abandoned my WIP for it because I had to put it on hold for a long while and then when I returned to it I realized that I was approaching it all wrong for the sculpt. This sculpt really suits drybrushing rather than layering, so that’s how I attacked it instead. That’s not my preferred method of painting, but sometimes you have to give up your preferences and go with what works instead. My rolled colours were: Main Colour: True Blue (I subbed in Dragon Blue) Second Colour: Brilliant Green Third Colour: Marine Teal I did the 3
  7. Hello fine people (and other assorted things) of the Reaper forum! Continuing in our project of teaming up to show you two different methods to go about painting the same miniature, Buglips and I decided that we would do a WIP thread for Con Crud, Convention Zombie from the 2017 Reapercon swag bag! He's a great little figure, sculpted by Gene Van Horne, that we thought we could have some fun with. This will be our second shared WIP thread in this series of ours, in case you missed it, check out our first one where we painted Thanis the Bonecaller: As with t
  8. So this guy was a relatively quick paint job - I worked on him over a couple of nights in between other figures and while things were drying. I had originally basecoated him a couple of months back when I decided that I was absolutely going to paint something using Breast Cancer Awareness Pink, as I have something like 8 bottles of it at this point. This was the figure that I pulled out of my Bones drawer. I’d basecoated him and then he made his way to the Shelf of Shame unfortunately. I saw him sitting up there and decided I would just have fun with it. The lemures do come 2
  9. This little lady has been kicking around my desk for a while. She’s a really fun little figure and I’d been putting paint on her here and there and I finished her up tonight.
  10. I painted this lovely lady over the last week as my first project post-Reapercon. I wanted to apply some of the things that I learned but also have fun with her. She was a really great learning experience, thanks to everyone who gave me great feedback in my WIP thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/77557-01450-all-hallow’s-eve/&page=1 This was my first experience “flying blind” with NMM, as on previous attempts, I’d followed the highlighting of other painters’ examples. There is no painted example in the store yet, so I had to just wing it. @Kuro Cleanbrush
  11. So between the Swag/VIP bags, paints that I bought at the convention and raiding the $1 paint bin at the Reaper Factory, I came back from Reapercon with around 40 bottles of paint. So the first hobby related thing I did after returning was to reorganize my paint racks, especially since they were a ridiculous wreck because I’d torn them apart while repainting Ma’al Drakar and then even more packing up paints to bring with me to Reapercon (which was pointless since I only painted in classes lol) While doing so, I discovered that I also hadn’t sorted and put away my Malefic and Fairy Flesh S
  12. No, I'm not neutering a 5 headed dragon, I'm fixing the sloppiness that occurred on Ma'al Drakar due to the time crunch during my 7 day challenge. First things first: Those aren't spots I missed, those are spots that I just spent the last few hours scraping with an x-acto to remove the mold lines that I'd missed. Yes, it was absolutely as heartbreaking to do as you think it was. I thought someone might find some use in seeing how I'm going about reworking things in my attempt to bring this beastie to Reapercon. So the destruction's d
  13. So I started working on this guy back in March, he was just basecoated with the pattern established (which was based on Rhonda Bender's beautiful example.) This afternoon I decided to pull him off of the Shelf of Shame and finish him up. I should've gone a size up on the base. And as usual, my pictures are terrible but I'm tired. C&C always very welcome.
  14. So here's the thread for the rules: I picked Stormwing. And here were my rolls: I will also be attempting the 3 Star Challenge version, so I will have my colour palette limited to my 3 rolled paints, plus black and white. I did a quick once over of the mold lines and then glued most of him together and threw some green stuff into the gaps. You're also allowed to prime with Brown Liner, so I'll be doing that next. There's no time limit and I can use any size brush I like, which will be a refreshing change for me.
  15. So just a little thing that I finished on Monday. WIP thread is here if you missed it: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/76415-guindyloo-vs-maal-drakar-in-7-days/&page=1 These are just some of the pictures that I took after I finished when I was half dead. If you want to see something specific, let me know and I can take some more. Most likely, I will be working on this some more post challenge, so I wanted to get a show off up before I change too much....if that's a thing that I do.
  16. Not gonna lie, I'm really nervous about this one. I may be making a terrible mistake, but I am going to be attempting to paint this giant 5 headed dragon in 7 days with a size 0 brush while working my usual work schedule that tends to run around 56 hours. I will have a 3 day weekend to end it out, but I originally wanted to take a solid week off to do this, but my work situation may be changing in the next couple of months - nothing bad, mind you, but I might not have as much time off as I have in previous years and I'd rather not wait until the holidays to see how things shake out. Let's be
  17. I'm 3 hours early, but.... Happy Burst Day! @Guindyloo
  18. So last year at Reapercon I took Bryan's conversion class and he let us know that at the Reaper booth at the con, they were selling conversion packs filled with pieces of Bones figures to be used in conversions. I bought 2 packs. They'd been sitting in a closet ever since until last week I decided to open them up and see what I had and what I might want to do with them. I ended up having a lot of fun putting together a bunch of little abominations, but I was sitting on my couch while in the google hangout and so there was no glue involved. I stuck each combination into a little baggie and took
  19. This is the figure that I sent out for the Spring Exchange. Tracking says it was delivered 5/25, but I haven't heard anything back, so hopefully nothing terrible happened to it. Anyway, my recipient wanted something colourful that could fit in the world of Alice in Wonderland, so I went for a female Mad Hatter sort of look. Sorry for the potato quality pictures as usual. The base gave me a really hard time. The first 2 things that I tried to make it with didn't work out, my original plan had been to have 2 teacups stacked, but I couldn't get the constru
  20. So this is a thing that's happening right now. No promises on how fast this is going to happen, especially with my impending Bones 3 shipment, but I thought I'd throw this on here.
  21. For the January/February RPChallenge, one of the bonus challenges was: I immediately knew what figure I was going to use but unfortunately she caused me quite a lot of trouble, especially her wings. Fortunately, Jessica Rich very kindly helped me out with some great advice and thus released me from my downward spiral. The base is by Scibor miniatures and was a lot of fun to paint. I've been very pleased with every resin piece I've ever gotten from Scibor and this was no exception. There weren't even any mold lines to clean up. Anyway, I hope y'all like her! (Pics
  22. So I'm painting this lady up for the January/February Resolutionary Painting Challenge - bonus challenge #1 which says to paint up a figure as a classic horror creature. I've been working on her off and on for the past couple of weeks so I'll spare you every single picture I've taken during the process, but basically she started out here: Then I painted in her eyes and started working on her skin. So fast forward to last night where I decided to start working on highlighting the red and.... well I knew at the time that I'd gone way orange, I just hadn't realized that I'd gone T
  23. So on facebook in December, a few of us took to doing a daily art challenge for the entire month inspired by Morihalda and her awesomely inspiring dedication to pursuing her art <3 I think Bathory started it and CashWiley started calling it the Morihalda Challenge (if I'm remembering correctly) and my dedication to it was to paint every day for at least 10 minutes. I was able to keep it going for the entire month and once we got into the new year, I decided to keep it going. I don't typically believe in making New Years resolutions, but dedicating myself to painting and/or mini related hobb
  24. I know some of you have already seen this guy on facebook (thank you for your feedback there!) but I wanted to go ahead and get this guy posted in show off before I slip away into madness painting DDS2 in 7 days. Originally I'd planned on painting this guy for my father as an xmas present but when it became obvious that I wasn't going to have enough time to paint a second figure in time, I decided to give him to my mother instead because she follows my painting on facebook and I knew she'd appreciate a painted mini as a gift a little more. She loved him, although we both agreed that I made th
  25. So this is the second one of these Scibor ornaments that I've painted. I started him before Christmas to have something to post for my daily painting challenge on facebook so that my mother wouldn't see what ended up being her Christmas present. As a result, I was painting it for too long and got to the point where I just wanted to be done with it, so it's rougher in some spots than I would normally like to leave, but, eh, gotta move on. The skin got away from me... I don't think the highlights are too bright, but I do think that I made them too large so his skin ends up looking stripey inste
