  1. Hello Everyone! I'm a new member here. I see there are a lot of talented people showing their work and I look forward to seeing more in the days ahead! Although I sculpt professionally I am pretty new to miniature painting; I've only done half a dozen or so thus far, as unfortunately I rarely have the time I'd like to devote to it. But I backed the Bones II Kickstarter and have finally started in on some favorites from that fine big pile of minis. And I'm definitely finding that the more I paint, the more I want to paint... Anyhow, here's my first Bones mini: the Burrowing Horror. A great sculpt with a ton of personality. I imagined it as a creature cryptically colored to blend in with its stony habitat, with claws infused with metal to help it dig at high speed through hard soil. Apologies for the so-so photos... Don't have a very good camera, I'm afraid; and I realize that mini photography is a whole 'nother hobby with a whole 'nother skill set. Thanks for looking, let me know what you think!
  2. As has been a theme this year, the minis I manage to paint will all count towards the resolutionary challenge. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. This month I am doing some horribly horrid horrors. Continuing the series "The Unspeakable Mouth", we come to the Bones KS1 77114 "Faceless Horror", a Lovecraftian Monstrosity if ever I saw one. Not anything like a D&D Gibbering Mouther on steroids at all. This ...thing, is all mouth. And eyes. Many, many eyes. (read that bit in Commandant Lassards voice). I put it on a 60mm round plastic base by Renedra. I think I actually prefer my bases to be a bit thicker.
  3. Let's see how long it takes Mad Jack to take this topic into Beekeepers! http://deadline.com/2015/04/rocky-horror-picture-show-remake-fox-gail-berman-kenny-ortega-1201407925/ So Fox is going to make a TV remake of Rocky Horror. Why? Yes it does have a cult following, but that is mostly for the call back experience in the theatres. If you're honest about it, watching the show all by it's lonesome is a mediocre experience. Especially if you watch it not knowing anything of the live show experience. I have no idea how they expect this thing to be any good.
  4. I spotted this set and got it originally for the woman in the slinky circa. 1930 gown, not yet realizing that it had two other great figures as well. RAFM sells three-packs of adventurers for "Call of Cthulhu" showing a progression: first the person in his or her civilian life, then out on the hunt for otherworldly horrors, then gone mad with the horror. They are kind of mixed in quality, but have a certain charm. I did not paint these as a progression of one character, but as three separate women: A society dame, a sporty modern young woman from the Indian Raj, and a madwoman out on the moors -- or tidal flats of New England, anyway. There are lots of fun details with these three. I tried to paint the madwoman's slip as transparent. It's eau-de-nil, an extremely fashionable color in the 1920s. Her feet and arms are supposed to look a little grubby. I added gloves to the society lady since no lady would be out barehanded at the time (her furs really should be a wrap around the back, not be two separate pieces; I think the artist did not have a visual reference for her back). And the sportswoman's boot is resting on a block carved with the most wonderful tentacled thing, although I did not paint it as clearly as I would like. The bases of the society woman and the madwoman were a little small for stability, so I glued them to pennies. I didn't do anything fancy with the society woman's base, but I added painted foliage and rocks to the madwoman's. The madwoman's base can be seen from above in this post: http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/49565-i-hate-to-base-so-i-painted-them-instead/
  5. Finished just in time for Halloween! This fella was painted in a similar manner to the Bones zombie I did earlier, drybrushing and inks/glazes for the most part. Adding a red glaze to the stitches was something of a last minute idea, but I like what it added to the figure. Also, more people should paint this guy up and post in the inspiration gallery. There's no pics of him! I got an extra set of golems in the KS, so I think I might convert the other one into some kind of sci-fi atomic monster, an atomic superman with an octagonal shaped body that sucks blood... Ahem. C&C welcome.
