  1. So, yeah late! But I got my Package and am sending out one in a couple days. So, first what I got... Not sure who exactly sent it, but it is awesome:) And what I'm sending... Dual Wielding Beer and Blade, Kerdak Bonefist from the Reaper Pathfinder line. I'll be sending a few bitz of extras with the package. Hoping it will make them "Howl" in thanks:P GF
  2. I will paint and create a Reptilian Army pure for fun. It will consists of many different kind of Reptiles and Amphibians. Mostly Snakemen, Lizardmen, Frogmen, Dragonmen, Turtlemen, Fishmen, Dinosaurs and Insects. I will happily include any monster I think will fit. Khanjira will be the centrepiece at some sort as the Living Lizard God. I do not play any games, so this will be pure for my own and (I hope your) fun to create. EDIT: The above was my original plan, over time and thanks to the comments made by other Forumites, this has developed into a story. This resulted in more Factions I wanted to build and paint, so this Project now also includes Pirates, Conquistadores, Native Warriors based on Inca/Aztec/Maya cultures. EDIT: And now it will also include Undead! *********** Captain Luigiano and his army had been travelling through the jungle for weeks now. The sunlight was blocked by the dense canopy of trees. Some of the men had contracted fever, and those darn mosquitos were a big nuisance! He looked at the golden plaque he had obtained. Gold, with a snakeman made out of gems on it. With this he had convinced the men to follow him. Somewhere in this accursed jungle there was a city made of gold, he was sure of it. They would conquer this city and become rich beyond belief. He looked at his army, they even had a few cannons. Nothing would stop them! Finally they reached a clearance. The men were pleased, at least they could see the sun again. They took a rest and a drink, tended to the sick. Suddenly they heard a loud roar from the other side of the clearing. Birds flew away, trees where falling! Some poison darts flew and two soldiers fell, they died before they hit the ground. A loud roar and an enormous terrifying Lizard appeared. One soldier died out of fear from just looking at it. Then the Reptilian Horde emerged from the Jungle. **************************
  3. I painted this around 9 months to a year ago and am just now getting up the courage to start posting some of my minis. This one I'm pretty proud of. My photography skills on the other hand could use some work.
  4. Just a few shots of my finished minis from Bombshell Miniature's recently shipped Kickstarter: The Imperator: The refugee from Draenor: The Orc Shaman: The Cap'n: The Mascot: And the group:
  5. Another day, another miniature for me to post. This one I was a little unsure of if I should post, but with how nice everyone has been I think I should! This one is the Pirate Sophie miniature, I saw it on Ebay and knew I had to have it! I have tried to make the parrot as realistic as I could, and for the photos I took heed of the advice given by Chaoswolf in the thread about my Wyvern, and have tried to get better light, though it has not been easy with my resources! Anyway here's the pictures, comments and advice are gratefully received!!
  6. I've just started watching the TV show Black Sails (yeah, I know it's been on for 3 seasons already, you hush ) and it put me in the mood to paint some pirates. This is an old Mage knight figure; it was called Xandressan Captain. She certainly looks like a pirate to me, so she got a quick makeover. Tabletop paint as usual; I think the most interesting part about the figure is her base. I made the ship's deck from toothpicks, which I first stained and then used several different inks to try and give it an interesting appearance. The base took at least as long as the figure; measuring, cutting, and placing the 'boards' took forever! I like the way it came out, though. I hope you like her.
  7. At first glance it looks like this guy is carrying a boom box.
  8. Yet another of the Conga Line of half-finished minis, finished. This is Reaper 03155, Vandora Waverunner, Pirate. She's painted up for a player who wanted a female pirate figure who was sensibly dressed. The character comes from an area of the world with hyperbolic geometry -- basically a like an M. C. Escher lithograph. There are a few clues to this on the figure. For one, her hat is impossible. No fault of the sculptor for not knowing, but that's a shape based on a relatively recent misunderstanding of an old 2-D image of a plain old three-cornered hat seen from an odd angle, which has been propagated and exaggerated through visual tropes until people don't see anything weird about it. It is, therefore, very useful as a visual clue to the bent space of the character's origins. The other clue is her map, which is a graph of hyperbolic geometry. All the angles are right angles, and yet they form regular hexagons instead of squares. I played some with reflections on her too, in the sword and the shading on the hat trim, both of which reflect her scarlet coat in different ways. Original WIP here.
  9. just a quick wip - still doing basecoating. Working out my colour scheme. I'm going to try to do the wizard's staff more like an icicle, we'll see how that goes lol
  10. This is one of the figures I've been finishing off as part of my end-of-the-year clearing out of half-done figures: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66344-pingos-conga-line-of-half-finished-minis/ I like this little Patrick Keith pirate.
  11. Since more people are showing off what they did last year, here are mine: Minis I painted in 2015. ( seems I have been busy) I will link them so you can check them out. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66228-54mm-maria-roseblade-pirate-queen-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65908-pumpkin-witches-and-their-house-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65484-legendarion-hyena-warrior-bust-gebhuza-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64977-zombicide-survivor-dog-painted-as-my-boxer-brutus-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63196-bonnie-chonoscope-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60500-77117-vandorendra-snake-demon-bones/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63938-kabuki-bust-ky-ra-female-barbarian-16-scale-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61631-xherman1964-paints-a-ral-partha-hill-troll/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62215-beloved-of-sobek-by-xherman1964-crocodile-games/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61632-stygian-guardian-chronopia/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61214-77100-vanja-fire-giant-queen-bones/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60959-undead-regiment-in-a-swamp-mixed-manufacturers/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60445-zombie-grenadier-horseman/
  12. Here is Maria Roseblade from the Reaper Master Series. Hope you'll like it. WIP is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62239-30007-maria-roseblade-pirate-queen-54mm-xherman1964
  13. I needed a break from my samurai project, so I decided to work on this dwarf pirate from M Proyec. It's a little bit bigger than the standard gaming figure, roughly 46mm to the eyes. I wanted a slightly less natural skin tone, so I mixed in some Burgundy Wine with the Rosy Shadow, then some Vampiric Shadow with Fair Skin and Vampiric Skin with Fair Highlight. It created a paler, colder skin. I still want to go in with glazes to add more color variation and reinforce the shadows, but that will wait until after I do the hair. The coat is a dull red I created using a 3 to 2 mix of Violet Red with Dark Elf Highlight for the base. It's shaded with Burgundy Wine and highlighted with a 50/25/25 mix of Fire Red, Dark Elf Highlight, and Vampiric Shadow. The final highlights are made by adding in a bit more Vampiric Shadow to that mix. The pants are still a work in progress. I began by sketching in the stripes, then I did most of the shading and highlighting on the white (cleaning up the stripes as I went). The blue stripes still need shading and highlighting though. For the comparison, the first image is the coat with shading and midtone, but no highlight. The bandanna also is just a dark base. The rest of the images shows it with those sections completed. Makes it much easier to see the difference the increased contrast of the highlights makes.
  14. Here is a quick tabletop paint of Hajad the bones pirate. This is one of the first times I have ever attempted to paint a different skin tone. I don't think it's too bad, but not as good as others I have seen on the forum. As always comments or suggestions welcome.
  15. This is a 1/12th scale Bust from Heroes & Villains Miniatures. This is my first project outside the 28/32mm scale, and I really enjoyed it. Very high-quality cast and sculpting; I highly recommend checking them out if you're in the market for some cool large-scale historical minis. WIP here. Huge thanks to bailey03; his 54mm tutorial was incredibly helpful in getting the face as good as it is.
  16. Hiii ! My first mini from the new range : "Via Ludibunda" Original sculpt from Kev "Goblinmeister" Adams ^^, really fun collection !
  17. So In order to participate in the 54mm Challenge. I will start with the Master Series 54mm Pirate Queen, Maria Roseblade. First step, prepping and assembly.
  18. This is the exchange mini I received. Awesome gift and great paint job by Generic Fighter.
  19. So I'm painting up this figure as a PC because I haven't anything quite suitable. She's a ship's captain from a strange corner of the world with hyperbolic geometry. I am planning to do a little hyperbolic graph based on some of M.C. Escher's designs on her parchment. It also accounts for the shape of her hat, which is an ahistoric error based on a misunderstood flat image of a perfectly ordinary tricorne hat. Not that I blame Ridolfi for that. That hat has entered pop culture the same way "Juliet caps" have, and with as little historical reality. Anyhow, I can lay the hat's shape at the feet of hyperbolic geometry, so hey. I started with a priming of Titanium White paint. The paint is pretty thin and translucent, much less opaque white than it appears in the photograph. I stuck her to a little jar with some poster tack and washed her with Burnt Umber to bring out the details. I love the details on this figure. The skull on her hat seems to be giving the o.O look. I was working with some pink, so I warmed it up a bit and painted her face. I think she looks a little sinister at the moment. I think it might be the shadows under her eyes and the eyebrows.
  20. My second painted up Bones Finaela: A Freeboter Pirate chick sculpted by Werner Klocke. The hair in her face made it very difficult to paint the eye on that side. Her skin didn't turn out very smooth either, at least she makes a passable mook.
  21. I recently modified and painted the 14225: Ra'am, Reptus Hero figure for use as a D&D 5e character. Character Inspiration: Race: White Dragonborn Class: Barbarian Background: Pirate Place of Origin: Luskan, City of Sails I did many modifications to represent this character. Base: is scratch-built from polystyrene to represent the gunwale of a Viking longboat. The water is sculpted milliput. The bag is a plastic piece from some 1:72 scale minitaure kit. The rope is a coil of Gale Force 9 product. Weapons: The sword is a reaper sword from a weapons blister can't remember which one. I notched it with a round file to give it a serrated back edge. The javelins are scratch-built with polystyrene rod and string. The javelin quiver is scultpted milliput. Shield: I took strips of polystyrene and bonded them together to make the planks of the shield. I used thin sheet polystyrene to make the outer skin of the shield and placed gouges in it to reveal the planks below. Brass Key: A large key made from bent wire and polystyrene hangs from a cord around his neck. This is a bit of backstory character detail. I use primarily Vallejo and reaper paints thinned with glass cleaner (Windex). The miniature has dynamic pose that gives it so much life. As I was looking for a figure for this character, I was instantly drawn to the idea of my dragonborn pirate leaping over the side of a gunwale to board an enemy ship. Overall, it was a very fun project. I think I took the figure in a whole new direction, and I am pleased with how it turned out. Original miniature for comparison:
  22. Another one of my recent quick-and-dirty conversions, and a quick-and-dirty paint job on it... I wasn't bothering to shoot for anything more than tabletop quality on this, as it was all about the conversion. The Bones Mariel Twinspar mounted on the bottom half of 77037 the Bones Medusa, with a fish tail sculpted on the end. Most of the detail on the tail is actually painted on rather than sculpted. My second mini for the month of Feb. For obvious reasons I'm naming her Cap'n Morganna...lol
  23. Reaper Bones 77160: Judas Bloodspire, Vampire (converted) For my first Iron Kingdoms RPG session, we spent a good portion of the time writing up character sheets, and not everyone came to the table with a concept -- so I didn't have everyone's custom minis ready (not knowing any better than the players what they were going to play). One of the players decided to go with a Gun Mage -- basically a spellcaster/gunslinger who specializes in infusing his pistols (and the ammunition therein) with special effects. I used a cowboy proxy for the first game, but to get the proper Iron Kingdoms look, I needed something with a long button-up, coat, tricorn hat, and very antique-looking pistol. There are official Gun Mage minis from Privateer Press, but none of my friendly local game stores had them in stock, and I wearied at the thought of putting in a mail order for ONE pricey miniature that might or might not arrive in time for the next game. So! Time to dig into the Box o' Bones! I wanted somebody with a fancy coat, and I'd already put the Bones Captain Barnabus Frost to use (as a Khadorite conversion), but Judas looked like a possibility with a few tweaks. My figure had a very bendy sword, so my initial plan was to chop it off and put the gun in that hand, but I decided to give the "dip it in boiling water" method another go. I've had spotty results with it in a few cases, but here it worked PERFECTLY -- it was rather uncanny, the way the blade straightened out on its own once dipped into very hot water. (Note: The right arm is actually a separate piece that comes glued on, but it's fairly easily snapped free. Therefore, I was able to dip JUST the sword into hot water, without having to subject the whole figure to the treatment.) Given that the sword looked just fine now, I decided to make the mini a lefty. That was accomplished by chopping the left arm off right at the joining point with the shoulder pauldron, drilling pin holes, then reattaching with wire at an adjusted angle. The trickier part was in taking a sharp hobby knife to the outstretched hand -- originally in a sort of "reaching out for something" pose, but I managed to extend the thumb, shave down the inside of the cuff, and hollow out the palm and thumbpad area so that a pewter "dwarf pistol" (from a Warhammer Fantasy sprue) fit nicely in, with the index finger going over the trigger, and bent-out thumb fitting behind the stock. For another conversion project, I had transformed a few plastic Clix "Crimson Skies" aircraft into passable starfighters -- and starfighters don't need props in space! (Technically, they don't need WINGS, either, but that's beside the point.) That left me with a few little clear plastic circles that were used to represent spinning props, and I've kept those around just in case they might be handy. I used one to slip over the barrel of the flintlock, and painted Khador runes (it's a letter substitution code) around the circumference. I've picked up quite a few HeroClix and HorrorClix minis on the cheap, including quite a few that were acquired simply for any translucent plastic "special effects" on the figures that I might be able to use for other purposes. One of these was a figure called "Shaman" -- basically a guy sitting in the lotus position, supported by translucent blue "lightning" effects. While that's a cool enough thing on its own, I don't need all that many people in spandex, so I got this just for the lightning. ;) I trimmed off a strand with an interesting-looking crook to it, and inserted the narrow tip into a hole that I'd bored down the barrel of the flintlock. (Thankfully, the flintlock was actually thick enough in diameter for me to do that!) The intended effect is that we've got the character firing off an enchanted bullet, and in my imagining, this one is some sort of lightning effect ... although I confess that I don't even know if that's an option for a Gun Mage under the rules, so -- artistic license!
  24. And after converting the other two Bones "pirate" figures for particular roles, I finally got around to finishing up the three remaining pirates from the first Bones Kickstarter. Reaper Bones 77133: Gruff Grimecleaver, Dwarf Pirate I found it amusing that the original pewter mini was holding a chicken in the left hand, and that it was swapped out with a pistol for the Bones version. I suppose the former would have pegged him for "ship's cook," whereas the flintlock now makes him more of a viable combatant (if a conspicuously short one). I've already got one or two "ship's cooks" anyway. Since there was a bit of a "front yard" area once I stuck it into a plastic Chronoscope 30mm lipped base, I used a bit of spare putty (I sometimes mix up too much at a time) to sculpt a little provisions barrel half-buried in the sand, using a knife edge to press out the areas around a barrel ring, and then to carve plank edges and "wood grain." Reaper Bones 77134: Hajad, Pirate This is the closest in Bones to a "regular" pirate crewman (i.e., male, not the captain, and not a dwarf), although the chest hefted over the shoulder means that I would have to do some conversion if I were to get several copies of this figure for serving as "pirate crew." Since right now I just have the one, I figured I'd just paint it as-is. I added a shovel and lantern from my "bitz box" to the front area since there was space, thinking it would fit the theme of a pirate who is either about to bury some treasure, or else just finished digging it up. Reaper Bones 77135: Mariel Twinspar, Female Pirate More gratuitous base littering! In this case, I used another patch of "surplus" mixed putty to make a small corked bottle half-buried in the sand. The skull face sticking up is actually shaved off of the back of a Warhammer Fantasy cloak "bit" (where for some reason it was in fashion to have a human skull hanging on the back of the cape -- because SKULLZ). I'd like to claim a success at one of the rare instances where I actually managed to *highlight* an eye ... but it's really too BIG of a highlight, and when I zoom in too much, it just looks weird. At least it looks okay on the table.
