  1. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/risingminiatures/asgard-rising-the-riddle-of-steel?ref=section-homepage-view-more-recommendations-p1 Asguard Rising is doing a 2 year anniversary special diorama through Kickstarter. Only €1, or about $2
  2. I looked back a few months and didn't see any group/open WIPs so maybe nobody does them anymore. I have been around long enough to remember when they were a thing so I'm willing to give it a go. This thread is for anyone to post their work in progress shots from the Dungeons and Lasers kickstarter, be it figures, props or terrain. Or animal companions. Or dragons. Really you have options. I am starting with the wooden cottage. I went to the store and purchased some DecoArt craft paints to use for my terrain. They were chosen by eye for how they should look but I need to paint something to see if they do work. First, priming! I have white, I have black. I went black. There's no pic of it, but after this I gave my test piece a wash of dioxazine purple mixed with a little black. It will just make sure the black is not a "pure" black. Then I went over all the raised details with a heavy layer of Dark Chocolate. More than anything this is just to cover up the black and make a base for the actual wood paints. This was followed up with my two base colors, Milk Chocolate and Burnt Sienna. Picking out individual boards was a bit too tedious for for terrain and doesn't really give me much benefit. For the rest of it I'll just paint the Burnt Sienna in patches. The grid is somewhat disguised here, but if it is too disguised that also is a problem. I plan to make each square darker in the middle and then lighter around the edges. This calls for some Honey Brown. I got some Honey Brown in the wood grain so I did an experiment with two different ink washes to restore the wood grain. One was Raw Umber, the other was Burnt Umber. To the naked eye I thought the Burnt Umber was a little richer in tone, but in practice I don't think it will matter. Honey Brown back around the exterior. And pop the edges with some Buttermilk. A bit much? Probably so. I tried a half-step with the Honey Brown/Buttermilk but it wasn't quite right either. The detail is deep enough though that I can just go back over it with the Honey Brown and not worry about building up too much paint. And more to come!
  3. Doing a Show-off thread that is to have everyone post a pic of their first painted mini (or around the time you first started painting) and their most recently painted mini that they are most proud of painting up. I'll start it out because I want to show where I've come from and where I'm at now in terms of abilities and to have others realize that they've come a long ways in the hobby as well! First painted mini was for a Pathfinder Group member and he wanted to play the Imrijka, Iconic Inquisitor back in 2012, so I decided to try painting her up and here's the result! Now, skip ahead 5 years to my most recent figures/busts that I'm going to enter into this year's ReaperCon. Nosferatu- Darth Sana- I also love doing vignettes and dioramas so being able to help tell a story is a big part of the hobby for me. Please feel free to add in your own figures your first few and your last few if you like, show everyone where you started and where you are now!
  4. Over on the Ghost Archipelago thread in the Fantasy forum, I posted about a toy-elephant head I glued to a Bones Bugbear to make a creature called an Eritherean, which is featured in the Bestiary for those rules, and is essentially an elephantman. This led to a long discussion, and the inevitable gluing of the spare Bugbearhead to the Elephant's body. It also made me realize how addictive head-swapping is, and since it was beginning to derail the Ghost Archieplago thread, I thought I'd open a new thread here for everybody to share any head-swapping projects they were doing. To see the original thread, and subsequent discussion: And here are the photos of my efforts so far: So what have you been working on!?
  5. so.... The painting funk has lasted for 4 months, and I need to get my cranium out of my anal orifice and start painting again.... Posted Thursday at 09:46 PM So.... While on the hangouts with some folks that play 40K, we have been talking about stuff, and I went to look for a figure that I knew I had, and didn't want, that @Chaoswolf thought was cool, and found the following: Now this is the basis for my mechanical Obliterators that I painted way back in 2003? and brought to Reapercon last year where they got a silver medal in the open category Speaking with one of the judges afterwards (@dks) we discussed them, and the painting dragged them down, as I said old paintjob... Well, with my painting funk in its 4th month, I was thinking that maybe, I could re do a new one from scratch, and with all the sculpting things I have learned, as well as painting techniques, I might be able to do better... Now Reaper forbids entering the same piece twice, but this would be a reprisal of something I did years ago.... Would this be legal as a new entry? @Heisler care to comment? George @Heisler's response As long as the entry is an entirely new piece and not one of those three then it would be a perfectly legal entry. My response... thanks @Heisler really hoping this will kick out the brain weasel painting funk! For some reason, I couldn't cross quote so.... It's gonna be ugly for a while.... the raw components: lots and lots of surface grinding with the Dremel tool, and sore fingers..... But hopefully, I've learne a bit about painting and sculpting since I did those guys, and this time, there will be only one....
  6. Rather than continuing the Kingdom Death: Monster assembly discussion in the acquisitions thread I've created a thread specifically for that purpose. Post your tips, tricks, and little things you've noticed here and make the lives of your fellow hobbyist a little easier. To start I'm assembling the minis on the "prologue" sprue, which are conveniently numbered. While this should keep people from mixing parts together, it's still nice to see pictures! First up is the lion. So for things I've noticed: The face doesn't want to fit very well. I had to do some trimming to get it in place, and it looks like I could have still cut away a little more. Attach the lower jaw before placing the rest of the lion's head. If you attach the main part of the head first I don't think it's the end of the world but you'll likely have to cut the tab off of the jaw to slide it into place. The hindquarters didn't fit together quite as nicely as it looked like they would when I dry-fitted it. You can see the gaps this created below, but they should be easily filled. I'm sure most of you have been at this longer than me, but for the new arrivals an easy way to get the mini to sit flat is to put all three feet in place with a drop of liquid cement and quickly align them as best you can. Then flip the mini over and press down gently. Polystyrene does not melt together instantly so you have a window to make adjustments before it sets. It will probably create a small gap at one of the ankles but it will ensure that your mini doesn't have a paw that is at an angle. Obviously to do it this way you need to glue the legs to the body before you glue on the feet. If you go feet first he'll just stand as he stands. Next up is survivor "C" This time I remembered to take a pre-assembly pic. She is pretty straightforward but since I'm at it... Her left leg has a nice groove to ensure the hanging fabric goes in place properly. Doing this first makes it really easy to glue her right leg in place. Her weapon arm is actually covering two sprue attachment points, and should not be glued in place until her torso is attached to her legs.
  7. In an odd coincidence that I swear I had nothing to do with, the passing of George Romero coincides with my finally completing a set of 77342, Zombies, from the second Bones Kickstarter. I thought it might be nice if people painted (and shared) zombies, to honor the life of a man who changed horror movies forever.
  8. I'm tossing down the gauntlet again! Same thing as the last thread I opened up for the DSM Stephanie Law figures. This is a GROUP/OPEN thread for all the awesome figures that Tre "Trebeard" Manor has sculpted for his line through kickstarters Looking forward to painting mine when they are in hand and I really hope to see others posting in here their WIP for these wonderfully sculpted figures. Please NO CHATTER outside of these figures, lets keep it to the figures themselves and questions about them if we need help/feedback from each other. Let's do this! ETA: Changed title, lets make it any of Trebeard's sculpts from any/all his Kickstarters as not all of us have gotten in on all 5 thus far.
  9. I had a brief discussion with Michael Proctor (Clever Crow) about the Open Category while we were at Genghis Con. It is was worth pointing out to everyone that your display can include pictures of your in progress work. In fact for this category I would encourage it. While we are familiar enough with Reaper miniatures to confidently figure out conversion work there are a lot of miniatures out there that we aren't familiar with. If you have pictures of the stock model (even off the manufacturer's site) and what you converted it would be of tremendous help to the judges figuring how extensive and well done your conversion work actually is. Don't forget this is also the category for scratch sculpts, so if you have been sculpting bring it down and enter it!
  10. Orcs! Gotta love orcs. While I didn't actually order the Orcocalypse add-on, we all get at least one copy of each orc in the Vampire package, so anyone can join in on this WIP. I figure this is a good one for an open WIP since there's probably about a 100 different approaches and color schemes to use on these guys. I picked out 2 of the 5 orcs to start with. As a big fan of Blizzard and Warcraft, I plan to paint these guys up in that style. Depending on how these turn out, I may try something different on the others. First step, washing, gluing, and basing: I removed most of their integrated bases, glued them to a round base, and then used Liquiditex Resin Sand to fill in and give texture. This stuff is great; fills the job of molding paste and texture in one go. I could have probably saved another step by just mixing my base color into the mix. It's white here as I had just put it on, but it dries almost completely clear.
