  1. Well, now that the contracts are signed and the hotel block goes live today, it is time to start thinking about a ReaperCon 2024 entry. Who am I kidding, I have actually been thinking on this one for at least a month already. Normally, I choose a model that I have sculpted for Reaper or DS and paint it for the Open Category, but not this year. This year, I want to try my hand at a wholly different category: Diorama! The Scene A stag of the scrub lands is out one late morning eating grass, blissfully unaware or the danger in the skies above. Suddenly he hears a whoosh of air and a sudden, sharp pain in his side and a blow that nocks him off his feet to the ground. He struggles, but the venom acts fast, paralyzing him. The wyvern that just attacked settles on his body, alighting there in triumph bugling her success for all to hear, for she is master of this land, a top predator in her realm...or is she. She has taken her prey too close to the shifting sands and her calls have attracted the true lord of this land. Just as she starts to eat, the sands next to her explode upward. Crouching down guarding her prey, she gazes upward into the gaping maw of the great worm... The Players: Celestial Stag by Jason Wiebe Wyvern by Julie Guthrie Goremaw, Great Worm by Bobby Jackson Ideation So I first starting thinking on this several years ago when I first got that wyvern in a Bones fulfillment box (can't remember which Bones KS); it has such a unique pose. It is obviously not looking at character level creatures. It's posture seems to be scared and looing up at something above it. It also almost seems to be puppy-guarding. This really intrigued me and it has been on a slow burn for years in my head. The great worm I had started many years ago, doing the initial cleaning and putty work when I first got it. I loved this mini from the moment I saw it. It has been sitting on my shelf of shame ever since, waiting for paint and collecting dust. A couple years ago I was taking Aaron Lovejoy's 4-part, online, airbrushing class (amazing class, BTW) and for a piece to experiment on, I grabbed this wyvern from my Bones creature box. It got some color, but I was learning and messed some stuff up on it. It has been hovering around my airbrush station ever since. One day about a month ago, I was sitting at my painting station, procrastinating as I worked on a character mini, when I looked up and saw the wyvern crouching there, then looked up and saw Goremaw on its shelf....and BOOM, this idea sprang full to life in my head. I knew I needed a prey animal for the wyvern and being quite lazy and not feeling like sculpting one from scratch, I searched the Reaper catalog and found Jason's stag. It will need some converting, but it is a good start. Current State I quickly ordered a new wyvern and the stag from reaper, to get that part moving. I then spent a few sessions over the last few weeks going over the worm with a scalpel getting rid of every mold line I could find. I also had to get creative as to how I would mount it to my paint holder as there wasn't a good attachment point (I will be resculpting the base entirely). The wyvern is out of the package and I started cleaning it last night. The stag is sill in box. Outlook/Goals I really hope to get this done in a few months. I'd like time to do another project for RCon as well, maybe a DS or Moonlight entry. That said, I know my track record, and the sculpt and jewelry load I have right now. I simply cannot give this all of my attention. To that end, I will be painting each piece one at a time, starting with the worm; that way if I don't get time for the complete scene, I can at least enter the worm in Painters. I hope to be priming the worm tonight and start the airbrush work on it this weekend. Hopefully, I will have something more interesting to show you on Monday. 🙂
  2. These are three figures that I painted to represent my friends' gaming characters 8 years ago (late 2015): an elf druid, a human barbarian, and an elf wizard who specializes in fire spells with blue flames. But I just realized that I never posted pics of them here on the Reaper Show-Off Forum. They're high tabletop quality: bright colors with some subtleties, adequate contrast out of a few layers, not perfectly blended if you look closely. Enjoy! Derek
  3. With Bones 4 only about a month away from delivery, I decided it was finally time I finished up the Goremaw Optional Add-On figure I got with Bones 3. I've been messing with the figure for at least a year I think, and this was it's lucky week. As always, I paint for game-table use, so it's not too fancy. For the painting article on my blog, see: Goremaw
  4. I painted the Merrow from the Bones 3 Stoneskull expansion this past week. As I looked at the figure, I decided I wanted to play up his aquatic nature, and thought it might be fun to paint him like a frog; and then I thought it might also be neat to do him in wild colors like some kind of Poison Dart Frog. Looking at pictures of colorful frogs, I decided in the end to copy the coloration of a Red-eyed Tree Frog.

  5. I finished my Damaris Walmund, Duskwarden, yesterday. I painted her to look Elf-like, since she will be joining my Ghost Archipelago all-Elf crew in the role of a Hunter. I'm really pleased with this one; it's about as good as I can manage. The jacket is Folk Art Color Shift paint, which turned out pretty neat as a pearly metallic, but I don't see much color shifting in it. I tried for a strawberry blond on the hair, but it ended up going more pinkish; not that that's a bad thing. Her face was a challenge, particularly the way the vest collar partially obscures part of the mouth and the hair partially overhangs the eyes. For some reason painting parts of things is harder than painting the whole... And I noticed in the photos that here's a little bleb of dark paint over her left eye. Oh, well, consider it a birthmark, as I am not going back in and repairing it at this point and risk messing up the whole thing! On the base, I attempted to blend her integral cobbled base into a grassy surrounding by adding some loose cobbles around it, cut from a bit of Bones sprue, as if it was part of some ruined floor for path and slowly breaking apart.
  6. Even though I got these during last year's 12 Days of Reaper, I only just got around to painting them! I tried an experiment with these; painting them first with special Chrome spray paint, and then using Citadel gemstone transparent paints on them: Spiritstone Red, Soulstone Blue, and Waystone Green, in an attempt to given them that lacquered mirror look that real ornaments have. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. In the second photo, they are shown with Copplestone's "Lovely Assistant" to give a sense of scale with a normal sized human figure.
  7. I had never painted a Garrick the Bold (Sir Forscale) before, and since it seems everyone and their brother around here has, I thought it was about time I did too. Coincidently, I needed a knight for a new Frostgrave warband I was working on, so I thought it would be the ideal time to do a Garrick for myself. Since he is going to be fighting in colder climes, I first modified him by adding an old GW cape to the figure. Also, since he is going to be employed by a Sigilist wizard, I did some freehand lettering on his shield.
  8. This past week I started the Dark Heroes set from the Bones 1 KS, and painted the two knights: Mangu Timur and Ragnaros, Evil Warrior, from that set. I didn't attempt anything too fancy on them, just did them up for tabletop use. ​For the full step-by-step painting blog entry, please see: Mangu & Ragnaros
  9. Over the weekend I finished up Damiel, Iconic Alchemist, from the Bones 1 Kickstarter Iconics and Officially Licensed Pathfinder Miniatures Set. Since he is an alchemist, I thought it might be fun to give him a white lab-coat. Painted for the tabletop. C & C welcome.
  10. For my upcoming Savage Worlds Mystery Men game I needed some Disco Boys for bad guys. I painted these up real quick, I need a bunch more. I gave this photo a "Grindhouse" look...
  11. This week I worked some more on my Christmas-themed Enchanter warband for Frostgrave, by painting the Special Edition figure, "Christmas Eve" to be the warband's apprentice, Mrs Claus. This is the third figure I've completed for this warband. I've painted Santa as the Enchanter wizard, and Yukon Cornelius as the group's Treasure Hunter. Here's a portrait of the Santa and Mrs Claus side by side. I think they go together pretty well. I like that he's all fierce and disheveled looking, and she's all serene and tidy. :)
  12. Knowing I would be short of time for painting this past week due to Spring Break traveling, I skipped doing another figure from the Bones I Kickstarter "Necromancers" set that I had been working on recently, and instead selected one of the simpler figures from the Bones I Kickstarter "Townsfolk II" set to paint: the Village Rioter. I did a quick tabletop paint job on him and think he turned out pretty good. As always, C & C welcome.
  13. I wanted to share this mini. It's among my top ten favorite miniatures that I have gotten. Just so morbid and horrible. In the style of the Braindead movie. :) Linked offsite due to a nipple showing. See it here.
