Some random conversions I threw together. Frank Buck, from Chronoscope, converted to a fantasy figure by adding some Boneyard pieces I picked up at ReaperCon. NOVA Female Trooper head swap. An extra Tara the Silent donated her head Attempts at some baby griffons using the falcon and cat from one of the Bones Familiar packs. I'd rather have a rainbowsculptor or Talespinner sculpt, but these will do for my D&D campaign.
Alien activity in sector five!
Inarah posted a topic in Show Off: Painting"Alien signals have been detected in the area. Stay sharp, men, they could be hiding anywhere!" "Be sure to check even if it seems an unlikely hiding place. And be careful where you point the BFG, Sargent." "Over here, sir! I've got one!" "Good job, men! That'll teach them!" Both the NOVA troop and Sarah Blitzer had conversion work. This is the third time I've painted Sarah.
Vehicle ideas for Reaper minis
kristof65 posted a topic in General Sci-FiSome of you have probably seen my Tycho AFV for my Nova Corp figures, and the Rottweiler Grav Tank I'm working on for my IMEF figures. They've been quite fun to create. And now I've been going through my collection of other Reaper Chronoscope figures, and I've realized I've got a few other groups of figures that I could make similar sized units from. If I do that, it would be only fair if I gave them each a vehicle. Since it will be a little bit before I actually get around to any of these, I thought I would ask you all what sort of look you would envision for vehicles for these various factions: Cyber-Reavers - Given the Terminator vibe of these minis, I'm thinking something along the lines of the Hunter Killer flying craft from the movies. Kulathi - ??? Bathalians - ??? Blackstar Corsairs - ???. I'm thinking maybe some sort of drop pod or drop ship for them? Or maybe just a bigger walker? The Gray Aliens already have a flying saucer, so they're good. That's what I have in my collection already (mostly thanks to 3 Bones Kickstarters). But I went ahead and browsed through the Chronoscope line in the store, and while I don't really see any other groups of minis that are big enough to make complete units, there are a few that were inspiring, should additional minis for them come along: Illyrians (2 minis) - ??? Blood Nebula Mercenary (1 mini) - ??? Alien Overlords (3 minis) - ??? Sligg (3 minis) - ??? There are also enough sci-fi hero types, such as Kirby McDowell Space Privateer and Bonnie Futuristic Heroine, to assemble mercenary like unit. They'll need a vehicle too. So let's see your thoughts and ideas.
Ready for action
Inarah posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingStarted these back in October, specifically the Sara Blitzer conversion. Was working on them at Reapercon, finished them during the Minivember challenge. Based and sprayed last night. I also completed one more of the Tisdale cousins, from the BoGW. They are ready for the game tonight. From left to right: 80024, 80049, 80014, 80019, 80021, 80010.
Nova troopers - questions
RouterMike posted a topic in Works in Progress: PaintingI had an idea that I wanted to paint up my Nova Corp folks as black-clad security troops, but I also wanted to add color to the reflections, since most objects are not true black, and life is rarely all black and white. So I have two troopers that I painted up in blue and purple. So my questions are two-fold. Which of these colors works better as a representation of black-clad troops? Also, how can I improve the highlighting/coloration for the rest of these guys? Bear in mind, what you see in the pictures below is about the best I could pull together for brush control yesterday.
We're running a sci-fi Savage Worlds campaign right now, so figured it was a good time to start painting up some of the moderns, especially for some NPCs. Since I have duplicates of a few of them, I did quite a few in a desert/marine/army type paint scheme (olive skin triad) and the other guys in a more police gray/blue scheme. The faces on Garvin Markus, Nova Corp Hero didn't turn out quite as well as I would have liked but since these are just baddies I moved on. I don't see these painted too often on the show-off, so hopefully this will help anyone else who had these on their plate. Thanks for reading, comments and criticism are always appreciated!
80021: IMEF: Sarah Blitzer
Jessie posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingAs mentioned in my other threads, running a modern campaign now as well as trying to hit a certain goal by the end of the year which means painting needs to pick up and time to get these modern minis done (how many years ago was Bones I released? let's not talk about that...) This mini was more fun than she looked unpainted. She has a quirky early 90s looking poof of hair poking up around her head piece reminiscent of Jean Grey from the X-Men cartoon series. Based on that I thought an odd color combo (red and purple) might be more fun. The camo on the gun was an after though as I was trying to think of ways to add more to it so it's so prominent. I was inspired by someone's cav post (not sure which) where they did quite a lot of camo and thought I'd give it a try. I think it turned out alright, but will probably experiment so more with it in the future (it's military green, camoflage green, basic dirt, and ginger cookie for those curious). Thanks for reading! Comments, criticism and suggestions are always appreciated!
A Platoon of Silmn
Froggy the Great posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingIn The Worlds In My Head, there exist two elemental races with a common creation myth and an undying enmity: The Nathi (hereafter referred to as the "Elemental Nathi") and the Silmn. Both humanoid, the Elemental Nathi body was a black light-eating metal and you felt rather than saw their features. The Silmn were creatures of exquisite beauty with bodies of crystalline flesh - appearing as normal humans made of translucent frosted glass. Centuries of war were, of course, inevitable as the races spread across the galaxy and finally met Humanity. There now exists a loose confederation of Humanity allied with the Silmn, Humanity allied with the hybrid race resulting from Elemental Nathi mixing with Humans (disconcertingly also called "Nathi") and out in the far galactic rim, the Elemental Nathi and their spiderlike network of influence. The Silmn have fared badly in the war, and it is only due to the appearance of The Seraph that they have managed to hold their ground. None can fault their courage and determination however, and here is a platoon of them in the adaptive armor that has served them for decades: Assembly and painting: 1. Decapitate a bunch of Bones NOVA troopers. 2. Recapitate them with the helmets of ancient hoplites with the crest removed. 3. Modify their guns into obvious energy weapons 4. Spray white with a bones-friendly primer 5. Abandon the project for 6 months 6. Glop on thinned RMS Snow Shadow. Let it dry and work its self-shading magic. 7. Paint the metals brass. 8. Heavily wash with : 1pt RMS Black Ink, 2pts RMS Flow Improver, 2pts RPP Gloss Finish 9. Highlight metals with MSP Honed Steel 10. Base. 11. ? 12. PROFIT!
