    Maledrakh's 77416 Formorian Giant

    Formorian Giant aka The Great Mutato! (Did they spell Fomorian wrong on purpose? Fomorians being monstrous, supernatural creatures from the underworld of Irish mythology, much like the Jotun frost giants of Norse) From Bones 3 core set, this Chaos mutant thingy takes the medal for overtraining half of his body. I imagine his (her?) family tree is a straight line. 77416 Formorian Giant Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015, Core set Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Bonesium PVC. 50mm round lipped base available from reapermini.com

    Citrine paints the Ghostbride

    This figure is the Reaper 3718 Ghostbride in metal. I wanted to do some white practice on her, and she is probably my most artsy figure, considering she has a purple base and not some mundane colored ground. I tried to have her be very white, with the white being on top of different base colors, but at the same time have the purple come up from the base. Mostly happy with her. I had planned on having her hair be blond, but the dark hair just popped so nicely against the pale skin. As a bonus, she did see some game time in our last session as the ghost of a young woman killed by her jealous fiance. Her father became a vampire to try to bring her back to life.

    Citrine paints Wyrd boars

    These are the plastic Wyrd 20620 Wild Boars (Ulix). I picked them for a quick tabletop paint job. Unlike many of the Wyrd plastic minis these where easy to glue together. May they eat many adventurers, but no more druids... One of my early characters, a level one druid, was killed by a wild boar in the very first playing session after she failed her animal handling roll. In the decades since, any time I see see a nasty pig figure I say that is the one that killed my druid. So one of these nasty critters is surely the one!

    Citrine paints Aviriel as a Drow

    I had used a bunch of leftover paint for the Reaper bones version of Aviriel Tellerion (77070), and those colors where more in the "evil spectrum" so I switched her over to being a dark elf. Very happy with how her face turned out, sadly she is looking down so you cannot really see it on the table. It has been a while since I posted, I have had a slump in my desire to paint this spring and I tend to wait until I have a bunch to show off to get the light box out. Avirion here was painted in March.
  6. So this is the bones version of Thain Grimthorn the Dwarf Cleric (77213). I was stuck on painting him for a long time, I had started with a normal skin tone, but it just didn't click for me. Then I had the epiphany that since it was unlikely that someone would pick him as a PC was very low, so I should paint him as an evil dwarf instead. I am much happier with him now. Here I present Thain the evil dwarf:

    Citrine paints Earth Elementals

    Just a quick speed paint to boost my painted numbers. These where painted back in March. The are all pumped up to pound some adventures. I do find it funny the similar stance for being created by 3 different manufacturers.

    Maledrakh's 77073 Freja Fangbreaker

    Freja Fangbreaker. On the topic of female, form fitting armour, it turns out that the upper chest area of female dwarves is invulnerable to all kinds of piercing and slashing weapons, so it does not need any armour! Ain't it great? Presumably the prominent devils dumplings act as bumpers and the impressive cleavage does not at all act as a funnel for spears? Seriously though, this is a first Bones KS model, made in the softer early Bonesium. And still it has rather good detail, only slightly shallow on the quilting on the back and on the lower right hand arm armour. Which goes to show that on larger figures that has deeper details (A dwarf counting as larger? Maybe I should say wider?) Bones is a good material. 77073 Freja Fangbreaker Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012 Sculpted by Werner Klocke Bonesium PVC 25mm bespoke 3D printed base
  9. The Whispering Tyrant from the second Bones kickstarter. This is an officially licensed Pathfinder miniature. So I guess it is some sort of evil adversary in some adventure or other in that game. For me, this is Loki. I expect you see why. To make the model even more similar to the trickster god, I cut off the central helment-thing and carved the helmet round. Which took me whole tens of seconds! Bones material is really easy to cut and convert. I will miss this aspect with the Bones Black minis. On this mini I have tried out some new colorshift paints from Green Stuff World and a flip paint (which is supposed to get the same effect) from Instar. I probably did not do it right, as I don't think it has much of a colorshifting effect (there is a slight effect, though). The instructions say to use a gloss black undercoat and many, many thin layers to get the effect. I did not do that. On a brown basecoat I used GSW Mystic Gold colorshift, and Instar Green Gold Flip, with GSW Tropical Green at the tips and edges. and I just glooped it on! Two or three thick coats of each paint is used here. So next time, maybe I should try actually following the instructions... Anyhow, this model will make a good leader for my undead legions, or even a C'Tan for the Necrons. 89031 Whispering Tyrant Reaper Miniatures, Bones 2 KS 2013 Sculpted by Bobby Jackson Bonesium PVC 40mm round lipped base
  10. Labella DeMornay, Banshee from the first Bones kickstarter, This is a green translucent, and like all translucents I undercoated it first with Army Painter Anti Shine Matt Varnish, so the following washes would have something to adhere to. This is key to painting translucents. Also, make sure to use transparent paints, like inks and quickshade washes. Opaque paints will invariably ruin the translucent effect. The green tinge of the plastic will affect any transparent colours that are used, and so this must be taken into consideration. For her brown hair, I used Citadel Carroburg Crimson shade (a dark red). The skin is Citadel Casandora Yellow Shade, the dress is old Citadel Blue glaze (red flip-cap hex pot) and ditto Turquoise glaze. Taking care to draw off any pooling and to avoid unsightly tide marks by smoothing with a damp brush while wet. The aim is to tint the translucent plastic, not sp much paint over it, or even "shade" it. Not sure how pleased I am with the results here. I think the results could have been much better if the plastic was clear not green tinged. 77096 Labella DeMornay, Banshee Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2013 Sculpted by Julie Guthrie Translucent green Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped base
  11. In compliance with the forum rules, you will have to actively choose to see the naked demonic female form by clicking the links: Fully frontal Demon 1 Fully frontal Demon 2 Fully frontal Demon 3 Virina, Female Demon from the first Bones kickstarter. A classic succubus-style female demon. This was a quick paint job, nothing much to say about it. She is very naked with a nicely sculpted figure. No nipples though. Come on! Even Batman has nipples on his suit! But the sex demon does not get any? 77067 Virina, Female Demon Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012 Sculpted by Werner Klocke Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped base
  12. To protect any unsuspecting, innocent children from Harmful Subject Matter, the bared mammarial gland look-alike is hidden behind the links: Nearly Naked Model 1 Nearly Naked Model 2 Nearly Naked Model 3 Tyrea Bronzelocks, Barbarian Another win for female body armour protecting just the important bits! Or bit in this case. The right mammary and shoulder being her only vunerable points? Dat a$$ tho! Might this mini by any chance be sculpted by Kev White? Why, yes. Yes it is. Kev certainly has a knack for sculpting sexy people. Single nipple and all. 77374 Tyrea Bronzelocks, Barbarian Reaper Miniatures, Bones 2 KS 2013 Sculpted by Kev White Bonesium PVC 30mm round lipped base
  13. Maledrakh

    Maledrakh's 77447 Werecrocodile

    Tick, tock, tick, tock... Werecrocodile. Yup, a werecrocodile. Presumably someone survived getting bitten by a croc and then turned the following full moon, tearing off all their clothes to waddle down to the river and burble at the moon? So now we are just waiting for the WereDuckbilledPlatypus and WereMoose with baited breath. Maybe in Bones 5? Thankfully this mini does not have any clothing, armour, weapons or other items about it's person. This can work as a monstrous beast of any kind. Even a Kaiju in a game of Epic. This came from the third Bones kickstarter. 77447 Werecrocodile Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015 Sculpted by James Van Schaik Bonesium PVC. 45mm bespoke 3D printed base

    Dragon Elder by Ral Partha for TSR

    This piece has been sitting in my mini drawer for quite some time. I'm not sure where it came from or why it showed up but it appeared and desired paint so it got some. I am thinking of making it the grand mentor for the legion of Justice and Caeke to counter the dread influence of Fatimus but we will see. In the mean time, I dont know too much about this mini other than it was produced by Ral Partha in 1991 for TSR Its pretty and it was fun to paint, but my google fu is not strong enough to find the name of the character and the base has no further information. So without further Ado, my dragon Elder

    Frostgrave henchmen

    I needed some more henchmen to fill out my frostgrave parties, especially some archers which I seem to have in very short supply. So i Found these while rooting through my drawer of 'I dont know where this goes and put a pretty basic paint job on them. I needed some minis to fill out the challenge for this month so here they are: I did try a little freehand on the soldier's shield and played with some of the brighter colors for the dwarf twins so they would stand out. In the end, basic minis to liven up the frostgrave maps Thanks for looking!
  16. Please see the main post here for rules, questions and general chatter, while using this thread to keep a list of links to your show-offs or show-off related comments in a single post: A reminder to please adhere to miniatures posting guidelines as usual. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84371-2019-rpchallenge-questionsannouncements/ All the information you need should be here. As usual, the new format holds a "hard mode" challenge! March and April 2019 Challenge Your challenge is: 9! Bonus Challenge: The First! March 8th is the birthday of Ralph H. Baer, often called the "father of video games." To tribute these early games - paint a character to resemble an early video game character (Think 16-bit era or sooner) the more obscure, the better! Addendum: It doesn't have to ONLY exist in that era. It doesn't matter if it's the only incarnation of it like Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure or Power Pete, or originated but is on 5183 of the series (looking at you, Final Fantasy.) but the spirit is to that era. Bonus Challenge: The Second! Bringing back the classic for April, the "Fools' Brigade!" Paint a mini in a patently absurd scheme! CAV with a bullseye on it...elf with an "I'm organic" tabbard, etc. The more outlandish the better! Hard Mode Challenge! Ides Of March Famously known as the date when Julies Caesar was assassinated, March 15. Make a small diorama (or large, whichever) of such an assassination about to, or having recently happened. Characters and environment. This will be counted as # of miniatures + 2 base and scenery.) As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!

    Maledrakh's 44002 Rock Troll

    From the fourth Bones kickstarter (no, I have not received my shipment yet, not even a shipping notice). This minis was sold online and given as a freebie if you ordered for more than USD 40 from the Reaper site in February this year. When I ordered it I was not aware that this mini also is in the kickstarter. The January freebie owlbear was not a KS mini, so I assumed the Febuary one would be seperate too. So I will be getting another of this mini with the KS shipment. So anyway..."Bones Black". a darker grey, much harder, less unbreakable, and heavier material than the regular "Bonesium" Bones material. This new material was a bit of a surprise when announced not too long ago, as there was no mention of it in the Kickstarter. They have gone and produced many of the kickstarter minis in this new material (as in all the expansions, but not the core set). I understand that this material requires a different type of mould which is more expensive to make and maintain, so the Bones Black minis will be slightly more expensive at retail than comparable regular Bones. Reaper is on record stating that they chose the name as it sounded cool. The minis are not actually black, just dark grey. My first impressions of the material is that it is actually quite similar -but not identical- to both Restic and the newer Boardgame plastic such as used in HATE. It is very hard and diffcult to cut or bend when at room temperature. I suspect there is ABS in the PVC mix here. However, it still responds well to heat (near-boiling water) and goes rubbery soft and reposable just like other PVC minis. When soft, it is comparatively easy to slice with a scalpel hobby knife. Just like Restic, it needs a little time for super glue to grab, and when it does, it grabs firmly. It is easy to drill, and what little mould lines there were came off easily enough with said knife. Not quite as easy as polystyrene, but much easier than original Bones. They could actually be scraped, which does not work at all with regular Bones. The troll came assembled, and needed gap filling. Reaper has also addressed this issue, stating that the new material has slightly different tolerances and shrinkage than the original Bones. They have been adjusting the connection points to compensate to avoid such gaps going forward. At any rate, my impressions of the Bones Black material are mostly favorable. The biggest con would be that is seems slightly more brittle than the original Bones (that can be thrown around without taking damage), but I have not had any issues with neither this Troll or the Owlbear, so I can't really say. When the KS arrives I will be able to look at many more minis in this material, so we shall see whether this will be any issue. The quality of the details do seem to be rather better than earlier Bones, and this is the reason Reaper has introduced the material in the first place. Again, the smaller minis from the KS will be the proof of the pudding. Should have lit it better... And it is BIG! Actually as tall as the Storm Giant, and larger then the new GW Rockgut Troggoths (aka stone trolls) A quick and sloppy paint job. I started with a black undercoat, and painted the whole piece with a very dark blue. Then I drybrushed the trunk of the body with three different purples, with red on the stomach and chest. I drybrushed the arms and head with Vallejo Nocturna Shadow and ditto Cold Flesh, the belt and loincloth also in Shadow, with Deep Forest Skin for highlights, mixed a bit on my palette for a couple of shades highlighting. The claws and nails were also done in the greens. The leg of cured meat or large pouch (you choose) in browns. The crystals and eyes I did in Scalecolor Tesla Blue and Carribean Blue with Reaper Aircraft Grey highlight. This was a bit sloppy as seen in the photos. Teeth in Aircraft Grey. Base as usual, and it turns out my new Vallejo Black is really glossy. All in all the mini took less than an hour to paint. 44002 Rock Troll Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Bones Black 60mm base Will be available from reapermini.com at some point in the future when it goes on general retail release.

    Maledrakh's 77191 Hydra

    All Hail Hydra! This one I have put off painting since way back when. In it's unpainted form I thought it had soft details and was a bit crude. As soon as I started painting it now, the drybrushing revealed another side to it, so to speak. It turned out much better than I expected, mainly as the faces are easier to read than when unpainted, and the details are not as shallow as I had thought. Again, I use a big brush when painting big bones, this one was mainly painted with a 15mm wide flat and a 5mm flat. It was painted mainly with drybrushing with no washes used at all. I started over a black undercoat, I painted the entire thing with new Citadel Incubi Darkness, and drybrushed this heavily with new Citadel Kantor Blue. Next was a heavy drybrush with old Gamecraft Olive Green on the top half and Vallejo Game Color Dead Flesh on the bottom half. The stripes are in an old dark red I think is Leviathan Fire Dragon Red. I am not quite sure, as it was poured over into another pot at some point, and I did not write what it was on the new pot. I drybrushed the stripes with new Citadel Wazzdakka Red. The back ridges, horns and claws were done with new Citadel XV-88, Bleached Bone and Reaper Splintered Bone. The mouths were painted Kantor Blue followed by Citadel Screamer Pink and Wazdakka Red, and a mix with yellow at the edges. Eyes in bleached bone, Yriel Yellow and Wazdakka Red. Teeth in Reaper Splintered Bone. I printed out a base for it, and built it a little up on the front end to make the beast stand a little taller. The cracks and edges were hidden with clumps of tufts. Many of the miniatures in the first Bones kickstarter were based on metal minis already in production. Might this be a factor for softer details on those than on the newer ones? This was a paid add on on the KS. 77191 Hydra Reaper Bones, from the first kickstarter 2013 Sculpted by Sandra Garrity Made from Bonesium PVC Bespoke printed 130mmx80mm base Currently available from reapermini.com

    Maledrakh's HATE Tribe of Sarrissa

    HATE is a big box board game by CMON based on the comic book series "Chronicles of Hate" by Adrian Smith, who happens to be the art director for CMON. Funny coincidence right there for you. Kickstarted by CMON in January 2018 and delivered first quarter 2019. I have not read the Chronicles of HATE, however what I have seen of it certainly does pique my interest. The art is done all in black and white, with lashes of blood red here and there. Adrian Smith is best known for his artwork for Warhammer and Warhammer 40.000. The peoples of the HATE comic series are easily recognizable as the inhabitants of the Chaos Wastes in the northern parts of the Old World of Warhammer fame. The many miniatures from this game are basically variations on the Chaos Marauders and Chaos Warriors theme. Straps and leather, muscles, spikes and murderous weapons all around. Which is not a bad thing. I like it, so I backed for the game and a couple of the expansions. I did not get everything though. The Tribe of Sarrassa is one of the expansions. As I do not expect to ever actually play the game, I have spurned the coloured bases and done them all in my usual meadow-like base style. I should probably have gone for a more dark tone in keeping with the very dark theme of the minis, but there you are. Contrast seems to be the name of the game these days. lots of pics beneath the click

    77573 War PUGS!

    War pugs! Waaaaaar puuuuuugs! The tiniest molossers remember what they were once. They're like a tiny regiment of cute about to headbutt your shins Speaking of butts, the view from behind I will use these in a game. I have no idea when...

    Bones 4 Owlbear (owlcub? owletbear?)

    Compared to the Bones Black owlbear, this guy was pretty puny. With fewer feathers. And odd spines. And skinny! Who ever heard of a skinny bear? Then it hit me. This is a juvenile. It's an owlcub! Or is it an owletbear? The spines aren't spines, they're pinfeathers. Fluffy owletbear covered in gray down feathers. With a downy belly and fully feathered mask Based off of pictures of barn owlets because those things look horrifying

    77525 Great Obelisk of Cthulhu

    I'm generally bad at terrain. So I decided to challenge myself. I painted the obelisk as a dark stone and the octopus on top as a green stone with cabochon eyes. I even went fancy and attempted to put some red glow/liquidity to the runes on the obelisk. I... don't remember painting those eyes like they're glowing... Wait, is that the camera's fault? Did... Um... It... appears my cell phone camera had a hard time focusing on such immense evil... Yes, that must be it. Here's a better pic of the runes. Yes, there we go. As soon as those eyes aren't looking at the camera it focuses just fine

    Pathfinder Gargantuan Green Dragon

    Another Mini completed between the strokes of life. (can anyone get the reference, Wish i had the ability) I picked this up a few months ago with the white and red varieties but I wanted to have a dragon i could finish and not worry about whether it came out really well or not. This one came out surprisingly well considering the amount of time I had to work on this. I had fun and it really came out looking well. Still trying to get the magic water right on my dioramas. this one doesn't look bad but it leaked out on me and made a bit of a mess. Live and learn! Hope everyone enjoys this!

    Battle Owl

    Third mini for now. This one has sat on my shelf of shame for a long, long time and has changed from a brown, to grey, to finally a snowy owl. The miniature is absolutely stunning. So much detail and magic to this piece it has overwhelmed me for years. But no more! I found a look I liked and brought it into the light of day. I really love this piece Unfortunately the original rider did not survive the trip down the timestream. I substituted a miniature I had from the first metal castings of the first Toughest Girls in the Galaxy kickstarter. (darned if i can remember the company name) These minis are pretty nice if a little fragile. so once the owl was done i fashioned up the lady with a trident and a net and set her in the missing riders place. Hope everyone enjoys this, I certainly did!
  25. These are from the Ghosts of Midlam Manor Kickstarter. I love these sculpts and I just got an airbrush, so I wanted to try sort of a blue zenithal ghost effect. They are more blue than the camera shows, I'm still getting used to the photo booth and lighting. (Plus I should probably use the real camera instead of my phone.) Overall I'm happy!
