    Reaper Silver dragon

    Hey guys just worked on this dragon today. A young adult silver dragon! I have added a subtle purple and blue haze over the silver to give it a mother of pearl effect! As always comments are wanted and appreciated!
  2. Am I missing something or does Reaper charge about $7 for the case in the big paint sets? Not that I disagree with their right to. Just want to make sure if I place a paint order I don't order a set if I don't need to. Or that I don't miss out on something else (other than the case) by not ordering the set. 3.29 a bottle x 54 ________ $177.66 Big set price: $184.99
  3. It's that time of year again. Those of us in the US have a 3 day holiday weekend coming up (May 28-30) and I am challenging you all to join me in a massively multiplayer paint binge! Everyone is welcome to join, even if you can only paint for one day. The object is to finish as many figures as possible. Quantity counts over quality. All manufacturers are fair game, posting of WIPs and finished pieces is strongly encouraged. You may prep and prime figures before hand, in fact I recommend it. Get out all those Bones, primed or half painted figures and get ready to finish them before Bones 3 ships! Got an army to finish, need to move some half painted terrain off your desk, want to tackle that dragon for the big figure contest? This is the time. All manufacturers are fair game. Prep and prime your figures now so they are all ready to go Saturday morning (or if you're taking a 4 day weekend, Friday morning). Have your camera ready to share photos. Photos strongly encouraged! For this holiday there is a special extra challenge: paint a figure in memory of a lost friend, pet or loved one. Anything goes. Painting begins at 00:01 May 27 and ends 23:59 May 30. More or less. Those of you who video chat are welcome to set up channels.

    Reaper mini Stone Golem

    Hey there my second submission today is my take on the mighty Stone golem...Now it is unusual! I looked up the brightest most unusual stone I could find and found a red white and bone pebble! I emulated this on the golem I hope you like it! It was the red pebble although my version is a lot lighter!

    Reaper Mini Ghost king (Amethyst)

    Hey guys ! Today I am submitting the third of my four skeleton kings. This one is the Ghost king of Amethyst! My other two are jade and Ruby check them out also! I am doing the quartet as part of a massive Dungeons and Dragons campaign! I had a blast doing these..Anyways Enjoy and as always comments are wanted and appreciated! Also please let me know if any of you guys have projects I would love to know about them!
  6. I am getting ready to replenish my supply of paints, I really like Reaper MSP and HD paints but have experienced issues with packabing of those I have purchased over the last couple of years. The printing on the labels rubs off and becomes unreadable after little handling so I have a number of bottles I am not sure exactly which color they are. By contrast bottles I have purchased several years ago have labels that are still very clear, I assume there has been a change in the way labels are printed. Additionally, the newer paints seem to lose water much faster than the older MSP paints. When I was adding water to refresh paints I noticed many of the new paints had lost up to 1/4 of their volume while the older paints only needed a few drops of water. I wonder if Reaper has switched the type of plastic for their bottles. I don't consider the issues I perceive with packaging significant enough to discourage me from continuing to buy Reaper paint since I am very happy with its quality. However, I was wondering if others have experienced similiar issues and, if so, whether they are present in current production.
  7. Hey guys back again and with three mini's this time! I have done the mighty Ape-x and the scary eye beast along with my take on the clay golem!

Thanks so much for your likes and comments it makes my day every time I get a like or comment! As always comments are appreciated and gratefully received!!

    Tube Acrylics

    I'm looking at picking up some tube paints for basic colors to start trying and wanted to just get five basic colors. What would be the best colors to pick up? Also, was thinking of going with Liquitex, but have never tried these kinds of paints before, so if anyone has any ideas on brands to suggest, I'm listening. Cadmium Yellow (Deep) Titanium White Burnt Umber Cerulean Blue Alizarin Crimson or Cadmium Red (Deep) Possibly also Mars Black Was also looking at the Iridescent Effects to add. I plan on using these to paint my larger models (lots of dragons). Also, is there a different primer I should consider as well?
  17. With tax returns coming soon, I'm looking to invest in some more tools to facilitate cranking out better minis! I'll first lay out what I have so far, followed by what I'm looking to get, and I'd like tips on those things and any I may have missed. For those that would like to participate, please share your opinions based on your own experience and please be specific with brands/models and your experience! "I have a Donegan OptiVisor 3.5x at 4" and it helps me see finer detail on 25mm heroic minis" is loads more helpful than "You should get a magnification source". I've come to greatly trust and value the opinions of the fine folks of this board and would love advice based on your experience! I understand much of this can be found by digging through the forums, so I understand those who don't wish to participate, but believe that besides myself, others could benefit from a consolidated thread for upgrades, especially with tax return season upon us! Current supplies: A handful of vallejo paints, matt medium, matt and gloss varnish Daler Rowney FW Inks in Black and Yellow Ocher Citadel Layer, Base and Large Drybrush brushes Princeton Select Round Blender 6 W&N Series 7 size 2 and 00 Sta-Wet Wet Palette Master Brush Cleaner and Restorer Hobby Knife Desired supplies: Ottlites (probably 2) Magnification of some sort. Either a visor or the ottlite with magnifier. A large container of Liquitex Matte Medium for mixing homemade washes More inks! Flow improver (primarily for washes, but also to further experiment with wet blending) A pin vise Basing materials (have bases, need terrain stuff!) Green stuff (and liquid GS) Lots of Reaper paints! Interference paint I'm willing to allocate a fairly sizable portion of my return to the hobby, but inexpensive options are obviously desired as it will allow me to get moar stuff! Thanks in advance for any help! edit: struck through acquired materials
  18. I didn't realize until I saw the post from March 2nd about the new minis that some of your minis are actually made with metal material. Prior to knowing this I had ordered some minis and some paints. The one half orc sorcerer mini (the one with the cool armor and holding his staff with both hands), Dorly, the Halfling with the musket. And a shadowguard mini. Noticing their prices were a little bit more expensive than the normal reaper bones minis, I assumed that these pieces were a better quality plastic, but are they actually made of metal? Like how the new Lich piece is from March 2nd and so forth. If so, would i need to get primer in order to paint them, and what primer would people recommend? March 7th, not second. Good job, me.
  19. Upon priming and placing my Bones Great Worm on a temporary working base I came to notice something that didn't fully occur to me beforehand. My normal working base choice is the lid to a dip can; awful habit, I know, but the tins make great rinse reservoirs and the lids are great for basing and a crude dry palette... I digress. Anyway, I ended up mounting the worm on a beverage bottle, which placed on my desk, and me seated in front of said desk, brought Mr. Worm to about eye level. I noticed that his model casts a pretty serious shadow on a fair portion of the front of his body, something I knew, but didn't really notice to what degree until I was looking at him eye-to-maw. So! My question is, for models that cast their own shadow, how do you approach shading that area? I can think of two basic approaches here. Either A: I ignore the fact that he's creating his own shade, and treat the entire underside uniformly, or B: I can move him and the light around until I get something I like, mentally bookmark it or even outline it, and actively paint-shade that area, so that no matter what light this guy is viewed in or from what angle, he'll appear to be casting shade on himself. Or of course, C: somewhere in between. TL;DR, would you shade areas 1 and 2 in this picture the same or differently?
  20. Hello my fellow meatbags! I’ve heard complaints of working with yellows and reds as being the most difficult paints. But for me it’s always been painting white. After a quick rummage through the forums I couldn't find anything specifically dedicated to this topic: Working with white paint, how to highlight and shade and getting a good range of values. So I have been working on a project and it has been driving me crazy. I've stripped and repainted it several times already but never to my satisfaction. I would very like much to paint the miniature if a lovely white dress, but I can never really make the white highlights really pop. And then the shadows on white clothing always look a little off. I prime in white to make the entire thing easier, but it still feels like I need to apply thirty or more coats of white paint to really get it to really pop. Then if I have a mishap with shading it’s another thirty layers to get the pop back and then it’s a bath in solvent because it’s just not working. *Shakes fist in angry frustration* I’ve even got some Citadel white base and it feels like I need too many layers to really make things feel brilliant, like a color bomb, but in white. The easy answer, in theory, is to add more contrast, so the white on white highlights seem more brilliant. But in practice? I guess that’s what I’m looking for advice on. How do you make your white on white look good? Throw in a little bone white for shadow? How do you get your white clothing to really stand out? How do you do it without doing a bunch of layers?
  21. What's the difference between these triads / paints? Shadowed Steel / Honed Steel / Polished Silver Blackened Steel / Tarnished Steel / True Silver Skunkworks Gunmetal / Durasheet Alloy / ? Also, what are the colored metallics (at least I think they're metallics?) like? Colored basecoat, colored highlight (off the mica flecks)? Colored basecoat, white highlight? Clear-ish basecoat, colored highlight like interference colors? Some examples would be great. Thanks in advance!
  22. So what do you all use for thinning your paint? I am using reaper paints and have been told by some of you all that I need to thin out my paints. I have tried adding water(distilled) but the pigment doesn't seem to stick together. I have been doing a 50/50 mix. Is this the ratio? Do I need flow Aid? Or acrylic matte medium? Or Slow-dri? If so what formula do you use? I know it's a lot of questions sorry just looking to get better at my painting.Thank you all in advance for all the help I know you all will give me. :)

    MSP Bones vs Regular MSP

    Hello, My recent holiday order came with an advertisement for a new paint series, the MSP bones line of paints. Is this just a new line of colors, or a specialized paint for just bones? Does this work as well for metal miniatures? Thanks
  24. Hi All, When i do a wash, a drybrush or deluted white paint, (I tried a few different brands, Tamiya, Vallejo(all ranges) and Citadel) I find my whites to leave a somewhat grainy texture.. When airbrushing I find my tamiya to be the one who gives me the best and cleanest result, but I am still not truly happy with it. I use low pressure, a fresh clean gun and apply many thin layers to get the best results, but still not to my desired satisfaction. I know most white paints have less or larger piqments in them then lets say a red paint, but was wondering if there is a paint that has less of that grainy feel/texture to it. Which White do you all prefer for brush work and which one for airbrushing?
  25. A Bones Orc Berserker. I'm trying to learn to paint shading on skin, primarily, although I decided to do this orc in green with the olive greens triad. I also decided to try a rust effect for the armor (inspired by somebody's verdegris post). I started with a Ruddy Brown base, heavy drybrushed steel over it, and then dabbed bits of the lava triad oranges on it with my most goofed up drybrush brush. I should make my players save against tetanus with this guy. I see from the zoomed up image that I seemed to have left some gaps in his armpits which is really frustrating, and I'm starting to get bummed out about my lack of basing ability...
