  1. It seems 2021 is to be the year of the "painting blehs", where many of us are struggling to find out just where our inspiration has wandered off to. The world seems to be going increasingly mad each passing day, so this isn't surprising. With so much uncertainty about, it's difficult to get back into painting mode with so many other things to worry over. Last year I was knocked out of any steady routine for long periods of time, and it appears that for this year that may hold true as well. So how to adapt is the question here. To begin with, to recognize how I wound up with a horde of ha
  2. Just a few last miniatures completed before the new year. Maybe I'll get some individual shots of the free hand, maybe not. In the meantime, enjoy or ignore as you will
  3. This was my second diorama for ReaperCon but was the one not judged. The idea behind it was a Mousling adventuring party finding treasure but also finding that others were already there. I wish I had done more with it, such as adding more elements on the Mousling side and possibly a back drop but I was sadly running out of time and this was the entry that suffered for it.
  4. So I finished up the insane project of Mouslings just in time for my son's celebration at school, the WIP is here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/86269-bones-mouslings-quite-an-assortment/ Overall it drove me crazy, mainly because they are without a doubt the smallest things I have ever worked on and were extremely hard to paint. The kids really made me feel good about the whole thing though, as many of the kids (almost the whole class?) came up and were really appreciative of the gift. The teacher was even in awe of the detail on them and that I had hand painted them
  5. So, I am taking on a quite ambitious project, I need these 30 mouslings ready for my son's 4th grade class by Friday??? (maybe following Monday, which would be nice haha) so he can give them out when they celebrate his birthday. So, here's the mini's (I am short two, but it should work out since there are 30 in his class and that's what Miniature Market sent. I ordered 32): Here they are unpacked, after a good washing: Mr. Bones is there because he will be my test case once they are all painted, he will be the one getting a matte varnish through my airbrush to see if I ha
  6. Welcome to my first ever WIP thread! Where I try and paint half as good as the rest of you! I love the mousling line Reaper does and the space mouslings were too cute to resist. I picked up the collector's set on a mystery site too. If I like this I might use it at Reapercon. Some assembly is required... so stay tuned.
  7. The second group of November Mice are done. It's good to be the king. Despite being labelled as a Druid, the mouse on the left reminds me more of a Necromancer type. The Samurai's colors were inspired by the costume for Blackthorne in the Shogun tv series. The Wizard's colors stem from the character of Alexander the Magical Mouse, although I've yet to paint up an alligator from him to befriend.
  8. These were done in two batches, the first almost a year ago. The whole crowd. The Band. The Staff. These were part of last year's batch and I tried to give the Innkeeper the Perpetual Bartender Sneer. The Drunks. The two on the sides were last year's batch.
  9. As the temperature drops the Mouslings begin to emerge...
  10. Totally new to the Reaper brand, so forgive me if this is mentioned somewhere else..... When I look at the Mousling line of minis, I see a few different models that are listed as 2 separate SKUs and 2 different prices but there's zero information about them so I don't know what's up with that. For example with SKU 03744 it's $7.49, while — SKU 77290 is $2.99 (Mousling Druid & Beekeeper). I've also noticed this with the King & Princess, Ranger & Yeoman, etc. The cheaper models are shown with a B next to them on the table as well. The only other difference I've no
  11. So this was supposed to be a Christmas gift for Mrs. Gargs but a combination of a bad shoulder injury in December and a crazy first three months of work this year resulted in these guys only just now getting done. That said, pretty happy with how they turned out given my meager skill level. Biggest problem I ran into was a nasty mold line on the snowman that just didn't want to go away. In retrospect I probably should have tried an X-Acto knife instead of just files but I was afraid of getting too much off of it so to speak. All that said, any and all comments, critiques, construc
  12. So I have the holiday mouslings that I am currently working on and as I envision the base for them, I keep coming back to the idea of something like a park bench to put on the base. However, I can't find a bench that is even remotely the proper scale. Has anyone ever seen one somewhere? As always, any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Gargs
  13. So this is my Super Secret Christmas Project for Mrs. Gargs (don't worry, this isn't all she's getting). Holiday Mouslings wonderfully sculpted by Gene Van Horne. I'm going to be giving this a go as a stocking stuffer for Mrs. Gargs. Now, I have no hope in heck of matching the beautiful paint job seen here, in fact, I'll be thrilled with a high table top quality on this as I'm just still new at this and don't get near enough time to paint as much as I'd like to in order to improve. That said, I do think I can at least get a halfway decent job done on this (by my
  14. So, as many of you may know, Mouse recently acquired a number of mouslings thanks to a couple of very generous benefactors and one ninja. Obviously, these Mouslings need some painting love. So, here it is. This is my project WIP for my mousling collection. Also, critiques, comments, and advice all appreciated! :D
  15. So of course I painted some mouslings for them: (Sorry for the blurry photos. I didn't notice until after I gave them away) @Inarah got me some of the latest "Color Shifting" paint and I wasn't quite sure what I would do with it. I looked at this mousling and just knew this was the right figure for it.
  16. Hi all, This is a model I painted quite some time ago. The mouslings simply stole my heart. This is a metal figure and not bones (i could not do the mouslings in bones i think). This is more for the photography set up than the painjob though....what do you guys think? I need to get a nice neutral back drop and the teal probably is a bit too busy but other than that i think the shot is nice and clear. If everyone approves of pics like that then I have a good reason to annoy the photographer (my spouse) to take more :D He's far better than me and has the proper camera. I'm sure lots
  17. Hi all! Finally finished this Mousling that has been sitting on my desk for a week. Yes, you read that correctly...a week. I may be the worlds slowest painter and this took me way longer than I'd like to admit. This is now the fifth out of the set, that I have completed. I started this set years ago but took very long breaks from painting in between. Sorry for the poor quality, my phone camera really doesn't do him justice but he is just so dang tiny! Let me know what you guys think! How do you like the Mouslings? they are my favourites along the legion of j
  18. So way back, y'all probably remember that I got all excited about snow globes. Yeah. I haven't tested any of those materials. I started sealing my test pieces and kept seeing terrifying warnings everywhere. So the water part is on hold, but pleeease add to that post if you have any waterproof suggestions! Here's my sketch for it. I'm unsure about the fence. I'm hoping that running it next to the little guy in the front will lead you to the middle so they feel connected. I've been watching some art videos and they said that guiding your viewer's eye is important! I think I will -not- cross
  19. Alright, with two months to go until ReaperCon, I need to get cracking on my entries. I currently have two maybe four entries for Painters, one for Open, and two for Diorama. My definite Painters entries are: Reaper 14131: Elsabeth, Necropolis Captain in purples and blues prancing through a graveyard. Dark Sword DSM7442 Wood Elf Gooddess-Avatar Form in green among forest ruins (started in my previous WIP) My maybe Painters entries are: Kabuki's The Hunter in black and red on a simple base Reaper 03730: Jahenna, Female Vampire, back and white study. This is a commission for a friend
  20. Here's something I acquired and painted a long time ago. It was made by Reaper in the early '90s but is no longer in the catalog as far as I could find. It's rather primitive compared to the modern mouslings, but still quite nice. Note the worm-like segmented tail. The mousling is cast as a separate piece from the kangaroo rat, but its tail is not. Also this mousling has slender, human-like hand and feet, whereas the current ones have more teddy bear-like extremities.
  21. I'd intended to run through these during the Labor Day Paint Binge, but failed. Still, I will keep working on them, so why not share here? The assassin is completed but for basing. The Samurai is nearly complete, with a substituted tail made of MagicSculpt since the one molded on the base was indistinct. Some of the others have colors blocked in. The archer with the hat had a badly distorted left eye, so I sculpted him an eyepatch.
  22. So I'm painting up some of the Bones II Mouslings to be used as ship's crew and NPCs in a fairly weird game. These aren't all of them. There's also a mouse king and queen (with pointy hat with veil), a samurai, and a classic wizard, all nice but not quite for my purposes. To be honest, I have mixed feelings about the buxom little "girl" mice. I prefer to think of all Mouslings as something you'd have to be a mouse to tell the difference, like in real life. But gosh, they are cute. At the moment I am referencing real mice for coloring. One Mousling is going to be black, one whit
  23. I painted these for my mom for Xmas. I need to put them on a base. Any tips for basing?
  24. Got a question out there for anyone who owns both Splintered Light's Woodland Warriors (any) and Reaper's Mouslings (again, any); how do they scale together? The Mouslings are shorter than your average 25mm/28mm "Heroic" figure, but they still look like they might be large against the Woodland Warriors' 20mm; mice the size of badgers! Or bigger! Pictures of the two next to each other would be appreciated.
  25. For the current challenge, I am working on a micro diorama featuring the space mouslings and mtal eyebeast. Comments and help eagerly accepted.
