  2. Hello everyone! I recently started painting miniatures after playing D&D for a short period of time and needing some figures for me and my partner. So, this is my very first attempt at painting miniatures! I found it really exciting and have painted up some more since these two, but I would still love to get some comments on these. (I am sorry if the pictures aren't great, I live in Sweden and daylight is rare this time of year...) Both was painted with craft acrylics at first, so the colours might not be great. I fixed the face of the halfling after purchasing some Citadel
  3. Hello, I used to paint Games Workshop miniatures when I was a kid, but was put off for many years by the price. Having found out about Reaper recently I decided to get back into it. I picked up the Learn to Paint Kit, a few extra Reaper miniatures and some extra paints/brushes. The valkyrie I have attached was my first attempt after a long break, and now I am getting onto the mouslings. I am having some difficulties though. I would love to hear any feedback on these difficulties I list or any other criticism or advice. With the valkyrie there are some parts I am quite happy with. Her r
  4. In the house Figmentius Common Room Thread, I started a daily posting called the Daily Mini, where I would find a mini posted for display on the web, post it, and we would discuss how it was painted/sculpted. It was a well received set of posts but too hidden in that thread. After much discussion, we decided that it is something that people valued, and we should move it to Tips & Advice. We are also changing it from a daily post to a weekly post, to allow us more time to discuss techniques and for more people to join in on each mini shown. The point of this post is NOT as another Sh
  5. I was wondering if there was any traction on the COG team in development? Haven't really heard anything since the update a while back asking folks to send in their email if they were interested.
  6. I got a visor for Christmas. Look out, 2016,the eyes are coming.
  7. That time again, put down what your goals are for the month and see if you can meet them and stay motivated! As for me: Paint 4 Tabletop+ figures for my D&D group: Cleric, Dwarf Xbowman, Halfling Rogue, and Half-orc monk/barbarian. Paint my Secret Sophie exchange figure(s). Work on my 54mm + entry Work on my brother's diorama some more, this is already a year late... - 85% completed Work on my Torgils Diorama - 40% completed Paint 2 figures for an on-the-side exchange with a friend EDIT: I only got the 3/4 figures painted for my D&D group, nothing else accomplished for December
  8. I was looking over the translucent red and green figures, and I was thinking that some of them clearly would benefit from some paint in some areas. Not the all-fire Fire Elemental, but at a minimum there's a tombstone on the green Ghost, and there are a lot of details that are hard to make out on some of the other figures as-is with no paint to increase contrast. I'm just feeling a tad cautious about it because it seems that there's no point to the material if you don't leave some sections unpainted, and potentially the difference between the painted / unpainted areas could look bad.
  9. Some pics of Reaper's Pathfinder Red Dragon. I built out the base to make it more substantial. Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  10. Going to post a couple of random Reaper monsters today. Starting with this miniature we've used as a D&D 5th Edition Spectator. Made the base texture out of greenstuff. Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  11. This is a Young Forest Dragon I painted last year. You can find my video tutorial for the painting project here: http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca/2014/11/video-tutorial-painting-green-dragon.html Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  12. This is Jason Wiebe's Dire Bear sculpt. Really like this figure. I've posted a short video tutorial for the painting of this figure here: http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca/2014/11/video-tutorial-painting-reapers-dire.html Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  13. This is the Shaerileth figure. I wanted to do a black & white/greyscale figure, set off with a single accent colour. Well, in this case it was red blood! Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca Edit: Ah, as a new user, I've just discovered that you can't show a nude figure here. No problem. If you'd like to see other images of this figure (from the front, for example) you can just travel to my blog, linked in my signature. Thanks everyone!
  14. A couple of Reaper Ogres... Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  15. This is a really odd figure, but I was looking for a burrowing creature, and this guy fit the bill. Biggest challenge was to find a paint scheme that looked rocky and organic at the same time. A floor wax coating on the teeth and tongue after the flat sealer gave the appropriate "wet" appearance. Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  16. This is the Blacksting Wyvern figure. I'm of two minds about this one. First off, most of the effort went into the basing...which was built up from basla, cork and lots of slate. I wanted a broken mountaintop look, and I think it turned out OK. On the other hand, for the actual figure, I liked everything about the sculpt except the wings. Because of the way they were sculpted, the wings looked very "meaty," not "membranous." In the end I just went with it and painted him like he had a couple of juicy steaks hanging off of his shoulders. LOL. Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknigh
  17. ...My new work schedule sucks... Please see page 1 here for rules and guidelines/questions. This is also the chatter thread here: The total painted is awaiting update.Soon http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/58628-resolutionary-painting-challenge-chatterinfo-thread/ Also, please only create a single index post for your links. This means to modify your existing post when you get a new figure finished instead of posting a new one. This month's challenge is: 5 Bonus Challenge is: The technical deadline Is planned for November 1, Midnight, RST. (Reaper Standard Time).
  18. So here is what I painted for Siri for the fall exchange. I was asked to try something new, non-standard weapons such as polearms. After some looking around I found that the Japanese Edo Era used a few different types of non-lethal polearms for catching criminals. So this is where the different polearms came to be. Had some difficulty with the battleguard golem as his polearm kept trying to break on me, but i think it turned out okay-ish. The easiest one was the rioter's polearm. Any upstanding group of monster catchers has to have a designated "mule" to carry their suppl
  19. Here we are, a new month and a new (or old) set of goals to achieve. I'm going to try to be realistic here with how fast I paint, but there are things I have to get done by deadlines. Catacombs Barbarian - Want to get him done by the 15th so that I can enter him into a contest ran by Catacombs. Done! Figure Exchange (on the side) with a friend coming to Vegas next month. - Starting on it Figure Exchange (on the side) with another friend, this is a 2-figure vignette. - Haven't started Work on the 54mm Figure for the 54mm+ challenge. - Didn't get a chance Work on my brother's VERY late
  20. I think it would be awesome if I could buy an HD video from Reaper that was an advanced start to finish painting of one or more of their miniatures. Like the learn to paint bones kit, probably without the paint, but with a detailed video on a Master Series Miniature or two from start to finish with the colors of paint and everything. This would be for an intermediate painter or advanced. I know there are the dark sword videos, but i would like to essentially "follow along" a master painter and have a painted miniature in the end. Just a thought, but that was be awesome! If that already exists
  21. I just started my miniatures painting blog a few days. There still isn't a ton of content but I did post about my first miniature painting contest. If anyone feels so inclined drop by and give it a read: http://dethstruck.com Or if anyone wants to follow my page on Facebook: http://facebook/dethstruckminiatures
  22. Painted up 6 more minis from the Bones 2 kickstarter. The bulette is my first official huge! Bases made from green stuff, pumice gel, and happy seppuku stamps.
  23. Hello Everyone - We are launching our Kickstarter tonight, April 20, 2015. We hope you all can check it out! It will feature Misaki the Fire Girl, and more minatures will be unlocked along the way. Misaki turned out to be absolutely beautiful, and you can check out close up pics of her on our website. http://www.mkadventures.com/ Thanks for everyone's support! We have been working hard on this, and are ready with Production Metals in hand. Yes, the pictures of the painted Misaki on our website are from the Production Molds... Thanks!
  24. My daughter (well actually stephdaughter) turned 18 recently. For a few years now, she likes to paint every now and then, She urged me to try it, hence the drawing of the vampire Queen. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60506-vampire-queen-drawing/ But I think minis are more my style. This is her work as promised. She made these between 14 and 16 years old.
  25. Bet you're thinking of the little invasive insect? I delight to inform you, you are wrong. Also: while the enthusiasm is appreciated, please do not post the monthly threads ahead of these. If I cannot post the monthly thread for some reason, then it will be posted by Flamehawke per the established format with the appropriate information. Please see page 1 here for rules and guidelines/questions. This is also the chatter thread here: The first post as linked will contain the updated totals and grand total now and the plan is to start getting the graphics sent to all who have completed the
