  1. Hi folks, This is my take on the Reaper Bones Marsh Troll from the second Kickstarter. I used him as Trepsin the Troll in my Tyranny of Dragons D&D campaign. C&C welcome, more pictures can be found on my painting blog.
  2. Please excuse the bent halberd. It was a little off when I took the pics and of course I didn't notice at the time.
  3. I tried to use a quick-rigged photo setup for these. Hopefully these look better than my Goldar pics. Also I tried something different on the mini. I used a coat of brown liner as a base coat after having seen discussion about it, then dry brushed up from there. Not sure how I feel about it.
  4. Another week, another survivor that I don't know the name of. (Fluff, who reads it?) For the second female I attempted to conquer the Scale75 Arabic Shadow. Of the paints in the flesh set, it is the one that I find kind of odd. While it's worked ok as a minor component of darker mixes it just doesn't look right next to any of the other colors, especially the lighter ones. In order to get my shadows and highlights to play well together, I tried to make sure that each mix was at least a quarter Arabic Shadow. After many mixes and much layering I've decided that you can get a decent skin out of it, but it was a whole lot of work to recreate something that I believe already exists as part of Reaper's Olive triad. What I have isn't well blended, but I've lost interest in her. This survivor is topless though she does have a conveniently placed arm that covers her just as well as any other fantasy female garb. As such I don't really consider her NSFW, but I've gone ahead and attempted to create a dropbox photo group using just one link. It's working for me, but if anyone has an issue with the link I'll add in separate direct links for each photo. The images are autocropped for preview, but clicking one will start a slideshow. Female Survivor Once I finish the lion I'll do a group shot of all the starting pieces for the game. If I'm feeling particularly motivated I might even touch some of them up with the feedback I've received so far. That said, I'm starting to feel a bit of KD:M burnout so I might work on something unrelated this week.
  5. This guy took a while and is probably over the top for a gaming mini, but I present Zachary of the First Story of Kingdom Death: Monster! Flesh tones are basically what I used for Rollo last winter. Golden Highlight, Tanned Skin, Redstone Highlight, Russet Brown. I subbed in VGC Ivory for Linen White. I added Muddy Soil to deepen the shadows and create some definition in them. The cloth is basically Alien Flesh shaded with P3 Coal Black and tinted with glazes of Camo Green. Highlights mixed in Ivory and I deepened the shadows, mixing Walnut Brown into the Coal Black. The slight bit of NMM was that Coal Black/Walnut Brown mix brought up with Alien Flesh and Ivory. For the base, I just tried to emulate the game board's colors while sticking to colors used on the mini previously. WIP begins here
  6. Once again its Sunday night, which means it's time to snap some pics of another Kingdom Death Survivor. When I started these I wasn't really planning on painting one per week, but if I keep it up that would be 52 minis/year. I would be happy with that. This time it's a female survivor, whose name I do not know but I'm sure Cash does. For this survivor I decided to try out a few paints from the Scale75 Blood and Fire set that I hadn't used yet. Her dress was basecoated in Fuchsia and shaded with Sunset Purple. To get some more practice with extreme highlighting I took some parts up to white. Her back is kinda flat so I decided to freehand in a spine, but I didn't reference how many vertebrae should fit so I'm almost assuredly wrong on that.
  7. I should start looking these survivor's names up so I have something to call them. Anyway over the weekend I painted the other male starting survivor from the game box. I did some experimenting with the shadow portion of the Scale75 flesh set to try and make a more realistic African skin tone that I had done with my fire giant. I don't know anyone with dreads so I attempted so googling to get a better idea of how the highlights work. In the end I still just made it up. Like the last one, he's not sealed yet so I can use these pics to see if anything needs a touch-up first. ... and I see that I haven't finished the lantern. Updated with a name thanks to Cash.
  8. My first KD:M mini has reached the almost complete stage so it's time to take some dual purpose pics! These are part show-off, part see if there's anything I want to touch-up before sealing images. Honestly I can see plenty that would need work if these KD minis were destined for anything higher than the tabletop, but they are instead on a collision course with greasy pizza fingers. For those that didn't see my posts in the assembly thread, I decided to attempt a cold light on white stones. To keep with that idea I attempted a blue light in the lantern. I initially painted his cloth white, but didn't like how it looked next to the stones and went for something completely different. I am now adding red to my list of colors that I can't photograph. It appears to be very intense in the photograph, but is not quite so overpowering in hand. Since he's not going to be entered into any online painting competition I'm inclined to leave it as is and not worry about how it photographs. Here's how the base looks from above, and pretty color accurate. Sometimes my camera does behave.
  9. Frost Wyrm Sculpted by Kevin Williams I got Auberon for the exchange. I decided to go a different direction for this than the name would suggest, "frost." The "spots" are GW:brown (that I can't remember the name of right now) with upper highlights using Pearl White (a metallic paint) then a a glaze of a Vallejo Orange and a re-highlight of the Pearl white. The eyes are ALL metallic's and the base is from the Michael's Arts and Craft. Wood rounds. I used Reaper Ginger bread paint for the base, washed it and dry brushed it. All in all I think it turned out well. For my first large monster I think it looks good. I hope Auberon likes it.
  10. This is the first of two little predatory underwater plant-creatures sculpted by Patrick Keith. I had originally planned to paint them like kelp, but I think they turned out more like bok choy. Such is life in the vegetable kingdom. Their faces are really that featureless, with nothing but eerie eyespots. This one is 92691, which has a single skull on its base. WIP thread here. Second Kelpie photos to follow shortly.
  11. Kingdom Death: Monster is finally making its way into the hands of backers. I’ve had a chance to play it, and I can say that the game, and game pieces are quite good. It is gritty, tough and each time your tiny colony survives a nemesis, you feel a real sense of accomplishment. Now, while I don’t have any of the new minis from the game painted up, I do have one of Kingdom Death’s resin figures done. Here is the “Chosen.†While he does not yet have any rules, reading over the fluff blurb on him, I’m pretty sure that he’ll make it into a Kingdom Death expansion sometime (probably as a nemesis).
  12. So here he is so far. He's being made for my daughter, so his name will probably end up being, Buckbeak... And that's okay. But I'm painting it in more of a golden eagle and bay color scheme, rather than the gray. I tried a dusky white/gray scheme first, but the sculpt didn't lend itself to those colors... I couldn't for the land find a satisfactory, unpainted hippogryph, so I used Starmane, Unicorn (02151) and Griffon (77157)--both lovely sculpts by Sandra Garrity. Took a little wiring to make it solid and to act as a skeleton for first plumber's epoxy, then greenstuff. The base is the bottom of a spackling tub reinforced with construction cloth and filled with epoxy (the 'grypy's wings make it a bit top heavy). I think it'll look pretty good when finished--soon I hope!
  13. These are two turtle warriors from the Bones II Kickstarter. I glued them to fender washers for weight and balance before painting them. The color palette is more muddy and earthy than normal for me. I wanted to make them look like alligator snapping turtles, the terror of my youth. One of them has a greener shell because that's a natural variation. The turtle shell shield is painted like an Eastern Box Turtle, an inoffensive little North American forest-dwelling turtle. WIP thread here. Spikeshell Warrior with shield and club: Spikeshell Warrior with two-handed club:
  14. Couple more demons for my Wrath of the Righteous campaign. This time its a succubus and the innocent new girl in town, Mary Lith. Bases are chaos bases from a recent CMON kickstarter. The marilith is based on a coral snake pattern and the succubus is based on a naked chick. Thanks! Thanks to carnacki for filling me in on the nudity policy which i should have read. The Following links contain nudity (though I dont know why a shirtless man is less offensive than a shirtless woman) Succubus http://i61.tinypic.com/142zdoh.jpg http://i62.tinypic.com/okd8vo.jpg http://tinypic.com/m/j5d0df/4 Marilith http://tinypic.com/m/j5d0dg/4 http://tinypic.com/m/j5d0di/4 http://tinypic.com/m/j5d0dk/4
  15. Just finished the boar demon from bones II. I thought it would be cool for him to have a supernatural demonic illness, hence the glowing sores. Loved painting this guy. The bones material really lends itself to these larger figures. Hope you like!
  16. Last week I posted a photo of a Bones II Sharkman figure that I painted like a regular shark: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63885-sharkman-77278-from-bones-ii/ This week I completed another one of the Bones Sharkmen, but I wanted to do something a little different with this second one. The first Sharkman I painted just like a normal shark would look: so this one I wanted to do more as a creature who had adapted to life on dry land. Perhaps a desert land where all the oceans had dried up. In keeping with that, I wanted to do this one in more a brown scheme like he had evolved to blend in with the surrounding dry rocky landscape. For fun, I thought I would keep a little bit of his ancestor's grey coloring in his tail. I'm pleased with how this different look turned out. For the complete write-up on how I painted him, please see my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/08/another-sharkman-desert-version-bones.html
  17. Recently got painted what may've been my favorite mini from Bones 2, the adaptation of Tre Manor's Krug, Hill Giant Chiefton. Great model, my first giant, and a fun one to paint, turned out. Just tried to keep it pretty simple, I guess. Tried for white wood with the club, in my ongoing quest to get wood right/not awful. Thought the goldish metal went well on it, too. I'm always silver. Wanted a wasteland-stones-something kind of something I don't know with the base. Thanks for looking!
  18. I completed the Sharkman figure this week from the Bones II Core Set "Under the Sea" group. I didn't like this figure at first because it is sculpted oddly, so that the whole body of the Sharkman is slanted off to one side. I have looked at a couple of these figures, and they all seem to share this quality. It doesn't seem to be a typical Bones bent leg problem, but actually the way the figure is constructed. I decided that putting something under the foot on the tilted side might help bring the figure back up into alignment. Also, there were gaps where the shoulders attach to the body that needed to be filled. My solution was to use some 2-part epoxy putty to prop up the leaning leg by making a rock for the figure to stand on. I also used the epoxy putty to fill in the gap now created by the different angle of the foot on the other leg, as well as the gaps in the shoulders. It was an easy fix, and in my opinion improves the figure. I'm pleased with how Mr Sharkman turned out. And I think the base turned out suitably so that he won't look too out of place either on land or an underwater setting. I may go back and hit the eyes with a little gloss varnish as I think they look a little flat and not beady enough. For my complete write-up on painting the Sharkman, please see my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/08/sharkman-bones-ii-figure.html
  19. Rugg, Bugbear Leader One of the Bones2 bugbears. I'm really pleased with the result. Great Worm The very popular great worm. My version doesn't hold any of the vast creativity that has been unleashed upon this model but I think it turned out quite nice despite it's "mundaness".
  20. Hi ! A really quick tabletop paint for gaming :
  21. Another recently painted classic mini from the olden days....... This "Umber Hulk" comes from the mid 1980's when Citadel had the licence to produce Advanced D&D minis. I painted it as per the description in the 4th Edition Monster Manual & I'm happy with how it turned out, I'm not so happy with the simplistic base, I'll probably go back and sort that out sometime. Thanks for looking!
  22. This week I completed the Mountain Troll from the Bones II, Expansion Pack 1. I tend to hesitate to select the large figures to do, as I somehow find the prospect of painting them intimidating; and I want to try and make more of an effort to work on them in the future. This guy, for all his size, was a nice easy figure to complete. For the complete painting write-up, please see my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/08/mountain-troll-bones-ii-figue.html
  23. Another day, another mini off of the shelf. In all honesty the Giant Scorpion wasn't on my shelf for very long, maybe a couple of weeks. It only got as far as the brown liner priming before its timeout. This time, I needed a test subject for the Scalecolor NMM gold/brass paints. Obviously I didn't paint the scorpion NMM, though you could if you wanted to, but I did get an idea of what the paints look like straight and mixed together. At this point I lack any desert flora to liven the base up, so it's just sandy. One tabletop Giant Scorpion to the done pile.
  24. For the second mini of off the shelf of shame I have another bugbear. Mogg was the same as Rugg, I got tired of painting bugbears and saved him as a test subject. His shield was a test for the Scalecolor wood paint set. Mogg isn't actually sealed yet, but I had the camera out so I went ahead posted him
  25. My August goal is to clean off my shelf of shame, or at least shrink it down some. The first mini of the month is Rugg, bugbear leader. He was started at the same time as the bugbear warriors I posted awhile back, but I ran out of steam after five bugbears and put him on the shelf. My rational was to save him as a test subject for the Scalecolor set I had in the mail and he did serve that purpose... eventually. Poor Rugg looks like he could have used another shot of dullcote before his photo shoot. The gloss is nowhere near as noticeable under ambient lighting though, so I doubt I bother with another coat just for gaming.
