  1. FIGURE...REAPER (# 02321 = Black Orc)...Conversion with axe removed and battle staff added. FOLLOWUP...This is a followup posting to my (WIP) dated 2-7-2014 and a reply to a (PM) that requested how I paint my black orcs and materials I use. STEP-BY-STEP...This is a brief basic step-by-step process that shows how I paint (my) black orcs. PHOTO 1...My figure is primed with Krylon flat white...first basic body/skin cover is a mixture of (midnight black/espresso/hauser dark green). PHOTO 2...Body/skin highlight is done with a mixture of (dark flesh/medium pink flesh/ac flesh/sable
  2. Sorry about the delay folks, had some issues to take care of on the home front , and hadnt had a chance to get this months proof written up. This challenge will be a little longer as a result, but requires a tiny bit more work on your guys part to get full credit for the themed entry achievement. This months challenge will stretch until the end of May, and yes there will be a separate challenge for May. April's challenge is derived from one of my favorite horror authors of all time, H.P. Lovecraft. Your mission should you accept it is to read one of Lovecrafts short stories, tell us about
  3. So, in anticipation of my Kickstarter Bonenami arriving SoonTM, I decided to start my own WIP thread, even though I currently only have one Bones mini to my name. I decided to get a bugbear as my practice mini, (my tiny FLGS only had about 5 Bones to choose from :/ ), just to see what I was in for and familiarize myself with filing, boiling, painting and stripping paint, etc. These first three pics are of him straight out of the package. Needs boiling, obviously: He also looks like he was the victim of a botched beheading: Lastly, the straps that are supposed to be holding
  4. Well, since I've got my first order of minis from Reaper, it looks like I'm officially in the hobby. Alas, all I have at the moment are a big pile of minis, four paints, and no brushes to use them with til I open gifts with my dad this weekend, he got me the four Learn to Paint Kits that are in stock (no #2), so that also means a Bones stocking. I think I might've gone a touch overboard in getting minis, but I wanted a wide variety of things to work with. So today marks the first package of four, hopefully all of them having a Bones stocking within, so in addition to the minis I want, I'll
  5. Howdy, I've met with some pretty bad first results on my bones minis. I think where I am going wrong is base coating. Undiluted I am having to do several base coats and it ends up killing the model's detail (and it also might be making the mini's really shiny...). I would really like to find a reliable method to get the model covered so I can paint like 'normal' with out all the beading. Could anyone recommend a paint line that work in a pass or two to base coat that's worked for you? Gray, black and white are my usual colors but any colors would be great too.
  6. I've decided to put myself out there with a miniature I am clueless as to how to paint. I have a few ideas, but I also am open to suggestions from the forum. I am going to paint Arrius, Skelatel Warior. I intend to use some of the techniques that I have been watching. My "Dragged though the swamp" on Decisions Decisions worked for me, but was a lot of wash being lost, and covered over. Think this time I will paint smarter, not heavier. I will solicit your input, and I hope that you will indulge me with your comments. If I learn something, so will anyone looking at the topic. Jasonator
  7. People who exist outside the world of our hobby (poor sods) are unaware that the painting of miniatures has been elevated to the level of high art. How many of us have non-gamer/painter friends who frantically attempt to change the subject when we begin talking about sculpts, colours and techniques? My family tends to just nod their heads, pretending to listen, whilst I prattle on. If only I could get them to view the work of Masters. Then, perhaps, they could understand what I'm on about. Here are three examples of works by Master Painters that inspire me and humble me as a painter.
  8. Hi, After finishing my Darkreach warband I'm moving to Razig. I have almost all minis I need to build my army. I would need your help on this project on both look and army lists. I have never used Razig in battle and I'm not going to use it untill I have fully painted playable army. The good thing is that we play at low ponts. So army of 500 is fully playable. but I hope to start with about 800pts. So before I'll post pictures of minis I need to warn you. This would be 100% unofficial models. The most of this army would be made using minis and bits I bought some time ago and put them
  9. (Scroll to the bottom for most recent version) I was reading through Cash's workbench thread in the WIP forum and came across an insightful post by galladril It made me think a little bit about how disorganized hobbyists can be about our skill sets. We tend to jump in, and just try things. That is something to be applauded, but it is like trying to run before you can crawl. Sure, we get where we want to go eventually, through trial and error, but we take a lot of painful falls along the way. I am someone that takes painting classes at every convention I go to, to learn
  10. Hello! Sorry if this seems like a silly question but I am honestly curious about what people will say. I will offer my own answer first: For me, there is no question, that it is when something new happens that I wasn't expecting. Either I experiment with some new paint that surprises me, or I try a new a technique (basing, eyes, wet palette, etc), and particularly when I start painting a miniature that I am not all that excited about and it gets to a certain point in the painting when the details resolve into a surprising whole that really catches my attention and makes the figures see
  11. Fellow hobbyists, tabletop gamers, and rpg fans, Firstly I'd like to introduce myself as I am new to the forums. My name is Paul and i like painting and building miniatures and terrain along with designing game systems. If anyone is on the miniwargaming forums, board of the living lead, dakka dakka, or rpg net i go by the same name [oddeye]. This may be a unusual post in the WIP section as most people are posting up only painted miniatures, I am posting up a work in progress of a entire game that I have been creating in my free time over the last 8 months (100% free to download, i do a
  12. I received my Starhawk from Reaper and was wondering what tips you guys might have for assembly and painting. I am probably going to pin the arms, but was wondering if folks painted the pieces and them assembled or assembled and the painted? When I dry fit the pieces, it looked like the side of the cockpit and nose assembly would be hard to paint with the Gatling guns on the side. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
  13. Hey Everybody, I didn't see a "New people say hi here" thread, so I thought I'd feed two birds with one seed and say hi here while also showing some of the very first miniatures I've ever painted (well, as an adult). That's right. Brand new to painting here. I tried it once as a kid but I didn't know what I was doing and only really managed to massacar a few skeletons and vampires with heavy handed use of enamal paints. I should really try to find those figures some day... If only I could, and strip them down and repaint them - a story of redemption - but I digress. Where are the g
  14. For those who might be interested...this will be a step-by-step walk through of my painting of this figure (Ral Partha - Giant Skeleton - #02-940): STEP # 1: 1. Clean figure of all flash...wash & scrub figure in warm soapy water...mount figure (as you wish to ready it for work), I mount my figures on wooden pegs for easy access in any direction...prime figure (I use Krylon flat white as my primer spray)...let dry for 24 hours. 2. I applied (Adirondak Alcohol Ink = Caramel color) to the entire figure...let dry for 24 hours. 3. I dry brushed the figure with Acrylic Vintage Wh
  15. STEP # 2: 7. I painted the cloth tunic in Acrylic Alizarin Crimson...weathered it with Acrylic flat white, true red & buttermilk... 8. I painted the chain mail in Acrylic steel, silver & black mixture...dry brushed with Ral Partha silver metalic wax and washed it with armour ink wash... 9. I painted the plate mail in Citadel Enchanted metalic blue and washed it with armour ink wash... 10. I painted the leather belt & pouch with Acrylic cinnamon & honey brown...weathered it with buttermilk... 11. Paint your sword or spiked club (as you wish)... 12. Did red i
  16. Okay, Leanne ... TURN AROUND AND LEAVE THIS TOPIC. J/K. She's not on the forums. I think. Anyway, the Jabberwocky in question is not the Bones Jabberwock from the Kickstarter. Those disappointed may want to stick around anyway. Feel free to comment or point and snicker. Here it is: I got this on the holiday clearance sale at FRP Games last December. The manufacturer: As you can see I already pulled it out and played with it a bit to see how it assembles and what shape it's in. Overall it's a stout figure with the caricature wings and a fairly standard
  17. So my reaper minis finally came in the mail! Yay! They're awesome, but I'm having a little trouble with the assembly so if any of you more experienced folks could help me out I'd really appreciate it. Issue #1: One of the figurines' legs are spread in a manner that does not fit the base. Namely, the Cthulhu one (the Kaladrax is giving me a little trouble too but not as much). I would litterally have to bend the legs awkwardly to make it fit on its base. Is this normal for reaper products? What do I need to do to fix it? Or do I need to call reaper and ask them for an exchange? What does ev
  18. I'm still fairly new to painting miniatures... But, I would like to paint an assassin/rouge/ninja type miniature wearing all black but I don't want it to look like I just dipped it in black paint. I want to learn how to paint where the black fades to a white light spot. I've tried to copy what I've seen of finished miniatures but it looks terrible. Does anyone know of a step by step tutorial that can help me with this?
  19. Hey everybody, just wanted to give you guys a quick update on whats going on over here, before we jump into the miniature challenge segment. We are nearing completion of our first set of sculpts for our commissions and out online store. Also we recently purchased out very own pressure casting chamber and we have all the mold making materials on order. As we begin winding down the February Miniature Challenge, with just over 4 hours left to submit. We would like to thank all of you who participated , you did a wonderful job on your entries, and we will begin grading them soon. Within the ne
  20. So, Bryan suggested a ton of little threads rather than one massive thread, and some people who showed up on that massive thread made it clear they were non-painters. So, how about suggestions for fun ways to decorate the Bones minis which aren't too hard for non-painters to essay, assuming that they may not wish to put in all the time and effort and money on supplies to learn how to paint 'em. Basically, it's for people interested in differentiating their Bones on the table without doing full blown paint jobs. And for anyone looking at this thread alone, please wash the bones with
  21. Right im not entirely sure if I should post this here or in Painting Tips & Advice, but since its about the kickstarter models i'll put it here. Anyway I wanted to ask if any of you experienced painters might consider doing some sort of video or blog journal of how you go about painting some of these new models? I realize there are already a tone of tutorials out there but as a complete newbie (and I can't stress that word enough) sifting through all those different tutorials and finding a complete and easily to understand one is a bit difficult. So I was thinking it would be quite ni
  22. Hey everybody, we have taken some time to look over our previous contests and we have decided that the format we were using was to working for us, or the miniature painting community. As part of this realization, we have decided that we would throw out the rules we had going and start of fresh with some new and improved ones. But before we get to that I just want to go over breifly what we are doing and why. In our past contests we have judged each miniature that was submitted regardless of technical ability, and have awarded them points for the effort. These points will be available for each
  23. Ok, today I got my Reaper Bones, and painted my first miniature ever (Cave Troll)! So after painting it (with P3) I got my Krylon Matte Sealer ready, and looked up how to seal miniatures online. I read that I should use a gloss coat first, then matte. Now, as I only have matte, is it ok just to use matte sealer by its self, or do I really need a gloss coat? I have also read about "frosting." How can I prevent frosting?
  24. So what are your ways of keeping the painting spark alive and the creative juices flowing. I recently had about a 2 month dry spell where I literally painted nothing. Even my wife asked if I was OK as I had been painting every night for months up until that point. I'm not really sure why the 'spark' died out in my case but I do know what rekindled it at least - a move into my new hobby/reading/mancave! Having my own space in the house to do painting, listen to music or whatever has helped tremendously. Technically I share the space with my wife's knitting and book collection but she tends
