  1. Hi Everyone, I'm new here, been an off and on lurker over the years, and wanted to share some pictures most recently finished models. Before I began, I was looking for ideas on how to decorate the models and a lot of the pictures that I found of these models I didn't think did them justice. So I looked at other treemen models. What I liked the most was using foliage and turf material to create "real" foliage instead of going with just painted metal. I really enjoyed working on the models, it was a lot of firsts for me. The biggest one being water, I have see
  2. I've had this cthulhish model from Fenryll Miniatures for ages. I used to call it Kentucky Fried Cthulhu and tried to paint it 3 or 5 times and somehow never liked the effect. Paints on it probably weigh more than the miniature itself. It also lost one foot somewhere along the way. I decided to recycle it for my new project, Swampstalkers, which is my army for the Kings of War game. One evening for painting, one for the base and here it is.
  3. So, with the fact that the kickstarter thread will eventually get closed, I'm starting this thread to bring the discussion over here. Current topics of discussion: 1. How awesome is this freaking giant?! 2. Holy crap these resins are NIIIIICE! 3. What the heck is up with the different stats on the Empire of Dust and regular Undead skeletons even though they have the same point cost?
  4. Here is another Mantic mini. This one a Necromancer. I’ll use him someday probably as a villain, but would love to use him as a PC if I get the chance. BTW, my 7-year old came up with the color scheme. Here is my color sketch I made while she was describing the colors.
  5. Here is High Priest Borosos from Mantic’s Kings of War game. He will serve as my cleric in our current 1st ed. D&D game.
  6. Hey fellow nerds! So I've got a few of the new Nightstalker minis from Mantic games, and I love 'em, for the most part, but would also love to add some diversity and fun to the mix. They're all pretty weird, distinctive minis, so I'm not sure what Reaper Minis might have to mix in (and how I'd even begin to search for something...), so I thought I'd turn to the collective knowledge base for help! Here's what the Mantic Nightstalker starter warband looks like: I love the shadow-hounds (along the bottom of the pic), but they're the same pose. Does Reap
  7. The gold armor tone is a bit flat on this guy. I should have used a slightly yellower shade for the midtone I think. Oh well. He’lol do for my purposes. Also, I thought the shield would tilt tilt the other way when attached to his arm, so the shading is opposite what i think it should be.
  8. This mini is by Mantic for the Kings of War game, which I think is defunct, and so I got some of them cheap. I like him him a lot. Can’t wait to inflict my D&D players with an undead guy...who summons undead guys. (Wash, rinse, repeat)
  9. Recently, I had a mad idea to make a travel set for the mass fantasy battle game Kings of War. I could take it to my brother's so I can play it with my nephews and nieces, bring it to cons without needing to rent a U-haul, even take it to the beach. The general idea is to use 10mm figures instead of 28mm and scale everything accordingly. Since Kings of War uses unit bases with no figure removal I can fix these guys onto their bases and add some scenery, etc. After looking into what was available in 10mm I decided to start with two Lord of the Rings inspired armies, dwarves and orc
  10. I normally wouldn't buy from Privateer Press as the minis are just too pricey, but i found these second hand at Half Price Books for under $8. Anyway, they make a fine troop of Wraiths for my Undead Kings of War army, and painted up really quickly. Tried out some fog effect too (shredded cotton ball). Took pictures with a two different light setups as I'm trying to figure out my wife's camera phone (mine is junk), I liked 'em both so you get to see 'em both.
  11. A kickstarter exclusive from the Kings of War 2 KS. I painted this mini for the Reaper forums bimonthly resolutionary painting challenge first bonus challenge, which is simply to paint a mini in a jumping/springing pose. This is a rendition of Ronnie Renton the owner/ leader/ director of Mantic Games as Ronaldo the Bard. And something of an in-joke at Mantic it would seem. I need to complain a bit about Mantic's metal alloy. It is too soft. This mini snapped in two different places. One was the feather in the cap, which I had to glue back slightly differently than
  12. A couple of multibases for Kings of War (one horde and one troop), including a more practical use for big K (he's just too big for wargaming with). Lots of shots. I had originally only intended to paint up the horde, but found I was running out of room on the base for the original number of minis I wanted to paint, so I added a few more and made the troop to go with it. Thanks for looking!
  13. So I'm getting ready to do some Sisters of Averlorn from GW, they're also known as the maiden guard. I've got about 20 to do and need to get completed by 25 AUG 16. They're going to go with some other 10 guys I've got done into a multi-base unit for Kings of War. They're supposed to be scouts coming from the forest. I thought since I was in a time crunch, it might be fun to document the process for others if they ever decide to do something like this. So my first step was to remove all the parts from the sprues and get rid of all the mold lines and burrs. Each mini consists of Head, Ches
  14. Hi, While digging through my pile of Bones, I got inspired by the Warg model (by Jason Wiebe) and decided to integrate this as part of my "in-progress" Forces of Nature Army for Kings of War. I chose to make the Warg as a "wild companion" for my druid. The Warg was almost entirely painted using washes and dry-brush (letting the wonderful sculpt do all the hard work). The druid is a metal mini from Mantic. While still being technically a 28mm mini, it is still a lot smaller than Reaper's heroic scale. I went a bit crazy on on the OSL, but this was a poor attempt at hiding/distracting t
  15. So I'm trying to finally get my undead army built and hopefully primed. I've got in the realm of 200 miniatures to assemble, and it's my first time really dealing with multi-part minis since up until now 99.5% of my collection has been Bones. Some of them I've already assembled over the last week, some of them I partially assembled about a month or so ago, but most of them are still on their sprues. It's going to be a real experience for me. I'm already running into issues with storage for the assembled ones. The plastic doesn't seem to take well to being thrown in a box. Some of the m
  16. Another batch of Undead, this time from Mantic's "Kings of War" line, though intended to hit the mean streets of Frostgrave (heck, they even market them as such in cross-promotions) The horde: The elites (Mummy Warriors, though great Barrow Dweller/Armored Skeleton types) The schlubs:
  17. A quickie batch of Mantic "Kings of War" Salamanders, done up as cave-dwelling Troglodyte types. Had an issue with some fuzzy primer with these games...curse you, southern Virginia. Thought I fixed it, but the photos betray it...
  18. Hi, Reaper! Haven't contributed in a long while, which I apologise for. Last year, I purchased a box of Mantic skellies and never really did anything with them after assembling them. Recently, I decided to start playing Kings of War, and found these beautiful models languishing in one of my bits boxes. I've also acquired a box of Mantic's werewolves, which seemed like they could be fun to paint up. I also have the GW Start Collecting! Skeleton Horde coming later this May, which should be fun. So, here are some pictures! I added a bit from the Empire State Troops kit for the leader's c
  19. Over the past 6 months I've been enjoying Kings of War so much that I've started to put together multi-based units for it. I have parts of lots of different armies in various states, but the main one I've concentrated on has been Undead. Though many of my minis are still based singly for versatility, I wanted to drop my all multi-based undead into a single thread. First up was a Mantic Balefire Catapult. I really should rebase to avoid arc of sight arguments, but I like the fact that the crew can sit on the same base as the machine and it has no in game effect one way or the other.
  20. Continuing my dump of recent photos related to Kings of War, here's stuff that didn't really go into yesterdays thread (undead multi-bases). Let's start with some undead that aren't multibased. I used the B2 Barrow Wardens as Wights: A bit plain, but they are getting the job done until the new official larger models come out. No good KoW Undead army is complete without a Cursed Pharoah with Wings of Honeymaze, so here's mine: As for non-Undead, I occasionally paint some orcs as my usual opponents don't paint, and I like to have forces with paint on them opposing me sometim
  21. Hi, After a bit of a painting break, I resumed my effort in getting my Forces of Natures army for Kings of War painted. I present here the Naiads Heartpiercers. This is a small unit of armour-clad, harpoon-gun-toting, water creatures. The paint job is a typical table-top army quality, but I did spend a bit more time on making the base more interesting to fit with the rest of my Forces of Nature Army. Also, I found that the name "Heartpiercer" fits pretty well with the whole Valentines things going on today. So it is a good day to post those: C&C always appreciated
  22. Hi, I'm continuing to paint my "Forces of Nature" army for Kings of War. Here is the Greater Earth Elemental. The sculpt was OK, but I found it to be too "Rock-ish". (I want an Earth Elemental, not a Stone Golem). So I sprinkled a bit of "dirt flock" to make it look more natural and earthy. I let you judge if you think it worked. For the color scheme, I kept it pretty light as i want it to look more good than evil... (though the rule books states "Forces of Nature" are Neutral...) I also spent some time modeling the base (which I don't usually do for my armies), to keep with the them
  23. Hi all, I started building up a new army for Kings of War: "The Forces of Nature" (new race introduced in 2nd edition). The first unit I painted is the "Forest Shamblers". Those are ogre-sized, magically bounded constructs of tree/wood, stone, mud and vegetation (...according to Mantic's description... which I guess is a way to explain that they look treeman-ish, but also a bit like natural golems). I decided to use the advantage of KoW rules that don't consider individual models, but units as a whole, and put them up on a scenic base. I also added a few animals here and there to m
  24. I actually finished these guys around Halloween, but only just got around to taking decent pics. Just basic army painting, a lot of quickshade ink in these photos. I'd been thinking about putting a big zombie into a unit of Mantic ones for a while, when I remembered the Zombogre from Bones 2. So I put him on a 20x40mm base (40x40 was too big for just him) and I think the result is pretty cool.
  25. This'll sound silly but fun. I play a wargame that has a unit of massive worms in a mass as a formation. This is at 28-32 mm scale. No one really makes these as a miniature cheaply in a quantity I want except fishing supply stores (and Amazon that evil temptress...) so $10 later I have around 150-200 silicon worms of various colors that I would like to paint up. So does anyone have experience? I've read some professional house painter boards and they mention using an oil primer, does anyone have experience with this or painting over silicone in general? Thanks for any tips or help,
