  1. I recently noticed I rarely get around to painting my Reaper minis, to remedy this I've decided 2020 will be the Year of Reaper. It takes me roughly 2 weeks to paint a mini, so I should be able to paint 6 a quarter and 24 over the whole year (I won't but I'm trying to be optimistic). I'm a bit early, but I've made a start to the 1st Quarter batch:- In the back row, you've got:- 03844 - Damaris Walmund, 44071 - Dark Elf Priestess, 03912 - Remus Raducan. And in front:- 60003 - Amiri, 44037 - Bergamot, 03971 - River Widows Gunner. I've started with the Dark Elf Priestess:- She lost an ear tip in the manufacturing process, so I cut the other one out too, de-elfing her. I had already decided on a super pale skin-tone (1:1 Rosy Skin/Ghost Grey > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Rosy Skin/Ghost Grey > 1:1:1 Rosy Skin/Ghost Grey/Light Flesh) which, together with her really sharp cheekbones, made her look rather vampirey. The look was completed with (1:1:1:1 Rosy Skin/Ghost Grey/Light Flesh/Blood Red) lips, (1:1:1:1 Rosy Skin/Ghost Grey/Light Flesh/Hexed Lichen) eye-shadow and Blood Red eyes. Next up, hair.
  2. Just to try and get some mojo going, I decided to start these guys too... Since I used to thrive on having multiple projects going at one time.... Derro Captain & Sorcerer and their troops, Derro Warriors (3) all Reaper minis Another group that has sat primed on the shelf of shame for a while... Reaper Linen White for eyes SC 75 Brown Grey for the skin... (I am stealing my old formula for skin that I used on my Reaper Duergar early days again, but stay tuned.... G
  3. Painted up these 8 unrelated barbarians as a clan for my Wrath of the Righteous campaign. Tried my hand at non-metallic metal again. This is the result. :)
  4. Here is the finished figure I painted up for my Secret Sophie.
  5. My friend got good pictures of this one. I did her as a fairly fast paint for a friend, as his character's mother Millicent Pillswallop (who they really should go check on in the next eight days... she got caught in an explosion in the city). I kinda went with a "Too lazy to blend, so cross-hatch and texture it instead!" idea on the cloth.
  6. Presenting Remus Raducan, part of the Blood Wolf faction in Reapers Dreadmere setting. Struggled to find this guy that interesting to paint, and as a result he ended up a bit lacklustre. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  7. This little lady I chose to paint for my Secret Sophie. Now that @Darcstaar has received my gift, I can now show her off. Skin tone – Dark Skin Triad Hair – Blonde Hair Triad Hair Bands – 09698 Retro Frost Satin Blades and shoulder pauldrons – Base of Tempest blue, silver toned metals triad with a stone wash. Breast pieces – Redstone base, Rose Gold, Red shadow wash, Highlight- Rose Gold, New Gold Sword Cross Guards – Redstone base, Bright Bronze, Red Shadow wash, Highlight – New Gold Undergarment – Stained Ivory – Creamed Ivory – Linen White Leather Straps –Rich Leather, Oiled Leather, Burnt Orange. Rings for Leather Straps – Cursed Gold Anklet – 09103 Emerald Green Dangling Straps – Pure Blues Triad
  8. Just thought i would put these up to show off the new party making their way through saltmarsh. A party of six graduates from the civilized lands, roped into fulfilling a debt by their mentors. At least they are working together... they arent my finest work but for 6 hours of painting, they will do nicely for our little gaming group and the group enjoyed the surprise of coming to their second session to discover they all had custom painted minis! we have a Halfling fighter an elven thief with a fixation for daggers a halfling bard the blue dragonborn priest of Protos the black Dragonborn warlock (had to create the head. I couldnt find a dragonborn mini with an 8 strength...) and a Human ranger from the backstreets and slums hope you enjoy them, i dont know how long they will last....
  9. This is one I've had "in progress" for ages. I finally mustered the courage to tackle all the eyes and then had fun with drool!
  10. EDIT - This is now going to be somewhere I dump all my Reaper projects while (hopefully) not causing chaos by misusing the Show Off section. I'll pop finished miniatures that are individually worth looking at over there, too. My first post on the Reaper Forum, so please be nice! Not 100% sure where to post this as it falls into several categories. but here it is anyway - my Reaper Bones Hill Giant "Tribe" and their hillside display base. I posted these in my regular Warhammer forum but they are too far removed from WFB to gain much interest, so I thought I'd share them here in their "proper" home. I've always painted miniatures with the "excuse" that they will be used to play games with, whether that be D&D or Warhammer or anything in between, so my emphasis is on table-ready minis rather than masterpieces. This is one of the first projects I've done without a clear gaming purpose, but because I'm a gamer at heart I still needed to put everything on individual bases for two reasons - 1 - "just in case" a gaming use comes up 2 - because gaming bases excuses a gaming paint job! I decided on hex bases because I liked the way they tessellate The paint scheme, choice of pets and landscape are inspired by my AD&D days, I'm constantly trying to recapture my youth! (Glad to say that Reaper Bones have finally made this sort of project practical and affordable, and I hope to follow it with similar projects using the other trad D&D Giant races.) All 11 miniatures used (and the 11th is very hard to spot in these two pictures!) are from Reaper, mostly Bones. There are a few relatively simple conversions, mostly so I could use two pairs of giants without them being identical. The major scenic elements (trees and rocks) are made from errr real trees and real rocks, while almost all of the greenery is from a range of suppliers (Citadel, Army Painter and so on) I tried to position all of the models so that they are focused on something located just in front of the scene - presumably, a party of hostile adventurers! I don't want to drown people in images, but if there is interest I can post individual pictures of each giant and some WIP pictures of the project, as well as the identity of that 11th miniature...
  11. Another villager from me. :) This is a 03856 Townsfolk: Courtesan Got this one done at a painting day in about 3 hours of work, but interrupted by cups of tea. :)
  12. Presenting Mary Jo, a member of the River Widows faction from Reapers Dreadmere setting. Had a lot of fun painting this one, and as a bonus she turned out pretty decent too! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  13. I'm very handy with a knife. Or so I kept telling myself. Until I cut off Cassie's index finger while trying to remove a few mold lines. Now, I'm trying to pass that particular incident off as a modification, but I'm not sure anyone is really buying it. Least of all Cassie. Hi everyone! Long-time lurker, but this is my first post, with my fifth miniature. Newbie painter, started with Reaper's LTP kits. This particular mini is one of my favorites, but I may have taken on a bit more than I can chew (or fix... with my hobby knife). I found a lot of good examples of well-painted Cassies here on the forum and decided to imitate one of the paint schemes I found. With mixed results. The amount of experience and talent around here is both inspiring and a bit intimidating. In any case, here she is, almost finished but not yet based. Haven't quite figured out what to do for a base. Is she in a forest setting, in a cave, in a desert? What would fit best with the current paint scheme? Will she ever forgive me for cutting off her finger? Questions, questions... /Cpt Tweet More on painting Cassie over at https://pocketsizedadventurers.wordpress.com/2019/03/31/playing-with-knives/
  14. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6abfiH_Bygc So I finished this miniature. Video will be uploaded once I edit it. This isn't finished yet but I wanted to go ahead and get the post up on here. This is the Crimson Herald, a Reaper Bones Black figure. I didn't have a color scheme going into this big bad boy. Sadly the photos REALLY don't do it justice and I do have a video I am getting ready to post to youtube. This whole thing was like a Bob Ross Saved it moment for me. I grabbed paint throwing all caution to the wind and was like "ITTTTSSSSS FIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNEEEEEE" {its fine} Spoiler. It wasn't fine. So I painted the body With Citadel Hex Wraith Flame. The entire time after i was just like "oh god... what have i done! its a lime green wraith thing...." Luckily I had a bottle of Citadel Technical paint "Soulstone Blue" which weirdly enough I realized "i used technical paint... which doesn't dry normally very thick... and my solution is to use MORE paint that doesn't dry thick to make a thick paint? am i mad?!" Answer yes, but the photographs show im not without some merit to my madness.
  15. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVPYLjS3PIU Decided to take a whack at painting this metal miniature and doing some basing on it.
  16. This is my first finished mini for 2020. It is the metal Dire Crocodile from Reaper ( 3422). Painted up in about 2 hours, just base coat and then a couple of layers of Army painter quickshade and Reaper washes.
  17. Just a few last miniatures completed before the new year. Maybe I'll get some individual shots of the free hand, maybe not. In the meantime, enjoy or ignore as you will
  18. Presenting Ashlynn the Vampire. Originally a Dark Elf Priestess mini by Reaper, she lost an ear tip at some point during the manufacturing process, so I removed the other rendering her human, then the paint scheme went in a very vampirey direction. Not one of my best paint jobs, although I am rather pleased with her face and hair, but it was one of my fastest, it's very rare for me to finish a mini in a week. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  19. So! This is my attempt at getting some fire lit under my behind and get to painting. I love miniature painting, been doing it... 15 years? Probably more if I count my Warhammer history. At some point I went from 'painting to game' to 'game to paint'. :) I have a lot of miniatures and a lot ambition. Unfortunately I also have a job that I love and I spend a lot of time with. When I do not though... I like to paint. I also like to GM, in the last years I have finished Serpent's Skull (Paizo AP), well at the time of writing the final session has been planned. I am also running Skull & Shackles, another Paizo AP. I have strongly modified book 6, which is where my PCs are at the moment. So that one is ending soon as well. Then I plan to take a break, maybe a year. Let some of the players run one-shots, a module, etc. Recharge the juices. :) Something that has been on my mind since it came out though was me wanting to run Wrath of the Righteous, a Paizo AP about a demon invasion/liberation thing. It is their mythic AP, basically a right good excuse to have the most epic demons, spellcasters, landscapes, etc. And of course, me being me, that gets in my head and I want to run it... Sure. But I want to run it fully painted and pretty. Not likely to happen, but I can try. I've been half-sassed trying to get stuff painted for... a while now. Ok years. I want to catalog the 'journey' a bit more. So I shall start a painting log specifically about the AP. So: Spoilers for the 'Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path' for Pathfinder from here on in. Complete spoilery expected! *** *** *** *** Alright then. I have already finished painting a bunch of minis for the campaign. I shall get to re-posting those pictures sometime soon. I wanna get my hands dirty a bit again first. So I am focussing on the models Reaper Miniatures made specifically for WotR. Right now I have Xanthir Vang, a worm that walks from book 3, and Aravashnial, an NPC from book 1 onward on my table. I am also painting another Reaper miniature as Horgus Gwerm, a wealthy merchant. The miniature is actually a, I think, limited miniature specifically for Pathfinder Society. A friend in PFS gave it to me, cause he knew I love minis. It is called Grandmaster Torch, and was a 2010 Paizocon exclusive. :) Instead of creating a thousand-and-one WIPs I am going to just throw it all in here. :) So to get things started. The three characters on my desk atm! Horgus Gwerm (rich merchant) Not available in the Reaper store :( Aravashnial (an elf caster) Available here: Aravashniel, Elf Wizard Xanthir Vang (Worm-that-walks) Available here: Xanthir Vang
  20. Decided to take one of my pirates and turn it into a flashy swashbuckling pimp. Lol

    03857: Milk Maid

    Here is a recent Bones milk maid miniature, 03857. I worked on my glazing skills on this one. Being pretty new to glazing I like how the dress worked out. :) Quite pleased.
  22. Since I like painting when it is dark outside I normally don't take photos, to combat this and get into the habit I am starting this thread. I will post some of my recent work, including things that are 95% done and are only missing a base. Some of the photos may not be the best, but they should suffice. Any advice and criticism is welcome. So let us get started: An old Pandora Metal starter set from Malifaux (and some Victoria Miniatures): The skin for the baby was done using Mars Violet (PR101), Nickel Titanate Yellow (PY53) and Titanium White (PW6). I may have also used Titanium Buff (PW6:1) The litle girl is sculpted with a basket full of candy, but since she is holding some scissors I decided to make it arts and crafts materials and a mirror. I went for a Black, Red and White colour scheme do to the spade on her shirt which reminded me of cards. The black is painted using Titanium White and Perylene Black (PBk31, which is green-ish in glazes and when tinted with white), I also decided against priming the figure and used the metalic to my advantage by glazing the Perylene over it. The redish colour is created by mixing some Quinacridone Magenta(PR122) with Red Iron Oxide(PR101). The mirror was done with Prussian Blue (PB27, I just love how it behaves. Only one of the manufacterurs, Matise, that I can get locally sells it in acrylics due to the the pigment chemicaly reacting with the acrylic binders), and Titanium White. The white cloth was done using Titanium White, Nickel Titanate Yellow and some Burnt Umber (PBr7). Skin and wood is a mixture of Red Iron Oxide, Burnt Umber, Nickel Titanate Yellow and Titanium White/Buff. Vampire sending little girl to collect blood with those scissors: As you can see she is tiny. Some Reaper Bones, mostly from Bones 4: Comments on them: - The monk and scribe were fun to paint. - The death statue was so nice I decided to make it a summon instead, with otherworldy energy showing throught the cracks. - The old lady with a cane had her dress done by glazzing colours (ohh look I could make it behaved similar to contrast paints for a litteral fraction of the cost. AU$10 for 60mL of paint + AU$20 for 237mL of glaze medium + some dish soap/flow improver, wonder how many cidatel pots I can make with that especially with the contrast costing about $AU12 per 30mL pot) - The pillar has some meted bodies flondering in pain, fun to paint. - The Red/Black lady is some Pyrole Red (PR254) + Cerulean Blue(PB35) , and Perylene Black + Titanium White, the skin is made of Mars Violet and Titanium White. Similar to the vampire lord with little girl. - Fish lady has a pipe in her hat. Some minor conversion My dreadmare herbalist arrived without the cylinder, I personally didn't really like that design choice so I decided not to ask for a replacement. Instead I was going to do some "magic". First the gap was filled with some green stuff. This involved resculpting some of the satchel on her frock, the sides of her frock, some skirt and the bag strap. = Then I painted the dress and blocked in some of the colours. Dress: Ultramarien Blue (PB29) + Titanium White Frock and shoes: Raw Umber(PBr7), Titanium White and Yellow Ochre(PY43) Bag, hedgehogs and hair: Raw Umber . After a working on and of on her she is mostly finished: The bag recieved a glaze of Quinacridone Violet (PV19) after it was highlighted with Titanium White + Yellow Ochre +Raw Umber. Greens are Ultramarine Blue mixed with different yellows, the minty green is made by Ultramarine Blue and Nickel Titanate Yellow. Red is some Red Iron Oxide and Cadmium Red Medium (PR108). You may be able to see the eyes and nose of the hedgehogs. Perylene Black was used for the metalics. I tried to give her some freckles, they look good from the front but I am not sure if I am to happy with one of the side looks. The flower was Nickle Titanate Yellow + Titanium White glazed with Indian Yellow (PY139). Practice With FreeHand I did some freehand practice on the Bones 4 milkmaid: This was achieved by first drawing a square with some diluted Perylene Black and then convering everthing inside and oustide it with thin layers of titanium white. The forest was first drawn by just when blending some Prussian Blue, Titanium white and a yellow. The Perylene Black may also have been used. The mountain was draw with some Prussian Blue and white, this was grayed with some orangy colour which I can't remember. A lighters glaze was used on the sky. Luckily this blended with the snow covered top of the mountain so I outlined the mountain with the same orange I used to gray the prussian. Then I glazed some Indian Yellow up from the mountain. This created an effect that I really enjoyed (didn't really make vissible green due to the sky being a greyed blue). The top of the dress looked a little empry so I painted a titanium white cloud that had a shadow of the deep grayed prussain at the top and a reflection of the orange at the bottom. The freehand is the centre piece so I did not want to detract from it with the rest of the paint job. To do this I made the dress a desaturated green, but found it to be to empty by itself. To make it pop a little more I drew a patern on it by mixing the dress colour with a lot of Titanium White and then diluting that with some flow improve and lots of water. Then I sketched the lines with the highly translucent mixture. To further highlighty the stripes which were lost in the folds of the dress (bad locaiton choice on the vertical stripes) I decided to make a higher Titanium White mixture that had less water and dot that in each line intercept. Now the model is drying (mostly finished) and if the weather permits I will have some nice pictures "Soon". Eureka Minatures Such characterful miniatures they produce, I will probably spurge for some more on my birthday. 1st Picture: Some duelists. One of them is so secure in his victory he is holding his folded cloak in one hand, or is he hidding something there? 2nd Picutre: An older lady feeding some chickens, currently missing chickens. 3rd Picture: has some muscians, I did not take a close up of all of them. They each have their own chairs and sheet music. There are 4 dogs, 2 of them are holding buckets with something in them. 2 chickens, a rooster and 2 chicks 4th-6th Pictures: musician closeups. 7th Picture: That lady behind the cow did something so scandalous that the lady further back started chocking, requiring her friend to help. Otherways is just 2 milkmaids, one milking a cow and there is a really curious auroch bull looking at the bucket. 8th Picture: I am not sure if blowing a seashell horn into the ear of a person is a bright idea, especially if they are dressed like that and holding a scepter staff while you only have a loincloth. The scepter is quiet heavy and a nice weapon, just a warning. Churning some Butter One of the Eureka Miniatures is this boy, he is not that small but still recognisable as a child (goes up to around the shoulder of adult miniatures, so if we take into acount the base of the vampire lord he is only up to underneath his arm.) The chemise is painted using some glazes of Transparent Red Oxide (PR101) and Burnt Umber over a base coat of Titanium White and Yellow Ochre. Everything but the close and hair has a basecoat of Burnt Umber. The shirt is some greyed out (I think I used Transparent Red Oxide in this case) Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White. The trouses are Nickle Titanate Yellow, Ultramarine Blue and some Titanium White (they may have been greyed out a little with Transparen Red Oxide). The trim of his trouses is Mars Violet with some Titanium White. Grumpydot Now this old lady is telling us to get off her lawn, so I brightened up her day by splattering her pinkish dress with some dots. The pink was made out of Cadmium Red Medium and Titanium White. This mixture was further lightened out with Titanium White to make the dots (lots of water with flow aid used to make them nice an easy to paint). The lady was still grumpy so maybe she did not like those dots? Too late for her then since htey are staying, instead lets give her some stripes. Her under-dress was painted a dark green (forgot the mixture, it may have involved some Ivory Black (PBk9) and Green Gold(PY129)) and the stripes were painted using some Nickle Titanate Yellow, Titanium White and the green mixture. To make them stand out more the shadows were glazed with some Perylene Black (I think it was that). Some Burnt Umber, Yellow Ochre, Nickle Titanate Yellow and Titanium White were used to paint the wood,shoes and headscarf. Her hair was painted using Perylene/Ivory Black and Titanium White. Reaper Speakers Now this is not the best pictures, the hair looks washed out (it has far deeper shadows than what is seen here). The hair for left and middle is Raw Umber, Yellow Ochre and Titanium white mixtures. The metalics were some Vallejo Liquid Metal "writing rubbed out" Gold. Either old gold or red gold, but sadly my bottle has the name of the colour rubbed out. The right lady, had her dress painted by first making a grisalis of Titanium White and Ivory Black, this was then glazed with Pthalo Blue (PB15:3). Her yellow decoration where painted using Nickle Titanate Yellow and Titanium White glazed with Indian Yellow. Inner Dress was a mmixture of Prussian Blue and either some Nickle Titanate Yellow or Titanium Buff. Hair were washes/glazes of Transparent Red Oxide, Indian Yellow and Burnt Umber. The book has some squigles that you can see in real life, but didn't come out in the picture. The middle lady has a dress of Hanza Yellow Light (PY3) and Pthalo Green (PG 7) which I think is the blue shade. I can't remember her inner dress. The leftmost lady is painted using OILS, it took her a while to dry, but I just love how using Prussian Blue and then wiping the top came out for her dress. The inner dress is painted with Green Gold. Her scepter handle is some Quinacridone Magenta and white. Some of my slowly "Speed" painted Handgunners I spent about 10-20 minutes on the skin of each figure and then left them bare. Over the course of the last month when I finished doing some painting and had some colour left I would take one of the figure and start blocking in a section of their attire, all sections, but the skin, are highlighted with Colour used+ Titanium White. Overall I would Say that each figure took me about 30-60 minutes of paint time. There are still 2 models left (double of each sculpt). 1:72 scale Freehand This guy is about the same hight as the butter churning boy, except he is a lot thinner (somewhat realistic proportions), I allready finished painting him. Sadly I don't have a photo of him right now, so the onnly thing I can show you is that I painted stripes on his throuses. The throuses and cape are Cerulean Blue and Titaniym White, The stripes are heavily diluted Perylene Black.
  23. Presenting my first (and probably last) Sophie mini, Mermaid Sophie! Got stuck on her wings so she sat unfinished for a long while, and I never did manage to give her non-googly eyes, but overall I think she turned out decent. As always, and comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  24. I painted this miniature for my wife for use in a Starfinder campaign. She is a plantlike race, but fully armored up. So I went with khaki and brown tones to denote some of that 'natural' feel. It is a 80013: Nova Corps Female bones miniature.
  25. Yet another new thread! (At some point I really should think about starting a blog, or whatever the cool kids do these days, instead of cluttering up the forum with my stuff.) While it's possibly a banning offence, I've gotta admit I don't particularly care for Sophie or her various minis, but this one really leapt out at me. I may have made things extra hard for myself by fully assembling everything, but she has little, dainty feet so I was never going to be able to pin her to a cork. Started with her skin (1:1 Rosy Skin/Beastly Brown > Flesh Wash > 1:1 Rosy Skin/Beastly Brown > 1:1:1 Rosy Skin/Light Skin/Beastly Brown), I was trying to give her a tan, but I don't think it's as simple as adding brown to the skin colour, however the colour I did end up with is rather nice. It's hard to see, but she also has (slightly googly) eyes, lip and eye makeup (1:1:1:2 Rosy Skin/Light Skin/Beastly Brown/Hexed Lichen) and eyebrows (Scarlett Red), I also basecoated her hair while I had the Scarlett Red out.
