  1. 'Twilight Knights are part of an organization dedicated to making sure humanity's glorious past is never forgotten. By gathering together what relics and fragments of knowledge they can find, they hope to restore at least a little of what was lost in the Great War. More heavily armoured and with greater mental conditioning than their regular counterparts. Order Knights are the shield of the organization, deployed to defend areas and items deemed to be of great importance. They stand steadfast in the face of whatever Void born madness comes their way.' Still struggling with taking photos at the moment (though these are a significant improvement over the first ones I took of this guy). A WIP thread can be found here. Overall I'm fairly pleased with how he came out, there's some serious room for improvement on his cape (I get stuck when the folds get large) but I'm getting there slowly. As always, any comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated.
  2. Hi Gang! It's late/early but I got so caught up in painting, I decided I needed to rejoin the WIP forum It's been too long! I hit one of those "painting zen" places and picked up a Shelf of Shame mini that I started to paint last year, but when I saw Cash's amazing thread in May 2014, I got discouraged so I "temporarily" put him aside. One year later, I'm ready to paint Noreth! I decided his long jacket would be a royal blue and while I waited for the base coat to dry, I worked on his face. Fast forward after an hour of obsessive "...if I just fix this little detail" and I looked up and thought, "Holy moly, now THAT is what I'm talking' about!". I've often been frustrated at my attempts at painting eyes and I'm finally in a place where I can be proud of the eyes that I paint! I joked with @ub3r_n3rd-- the amount of time I spend studying with Derek Schubert at each ReaperCon is directly proportional to how well I paint that next year. However, I still have a LOT to learn! At RC 2016, I might just duct tape myself to him throughout the entire Con. He won't mind... right? (see "Harassment" in your "What NOT To Do at ReaperCon" common-sense pamphlets)
  3. Still don't feel like facing my 'Shelf of Shame' at the moment, so I dug this guy out of my 'Pile of Shame':- The Order variant of the Twilight Knight from Kingdom Death. Between him needing quite a lot of prep work (the casting wasn't particularly good on this one), a paint explosion and general 'life suckiness', I haven't got very far:- His face is done (Vallejo Dwarf Flesh>Flesh Shade Wash>Dwarf Flesh>1:1 Dwarf Flesh/Linen White). I gave his eyes a few tries but they're way too small for me to pupilize, I might colour them in later but I'm liking them white at the moment. I've made a start on his tunic with a basecoat of Sapphire Blue, but I'm having doubts as to whether it's all one piece (the bottom half does look a lot more 'armour platey' compared to the obviously fabric top). There's also something going on under his left arm, so his tunic might actually be a tabbard over a breastplate, but I can't really make it out. So I worked on his funky shield:- But I don't think I'll get a decent picture of it until it's attached. The front of the shield is finished, the face drybrushed in Vallejo Bronze and Vallejo Burnished Gold, with the edges in Vallejo Oily Steel.
  4. Painted this for a friends' birthday. The miniature is going to be part of a small diorama, fending off a dragon.
  5. Here is the TOTALLY AWESOME figure I received as part of the 2015 Spring figure exchange! Flamehawke did an amazing job painting and basing this incredible figure! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  6. Long time no post. So here I go again. Another party member so another character waiting to be killed. His name is Chval (can be translated as "praise") and he is the witcher from the fire order. These boys call themselves "Hearts of fire". More like "farts on fire" to me. As a character I never liked him, as he was real phoney. He had a horse, while we were walking, he had a sword, while we had only sticks.... But during our last game we kind of find a way to each other....(un)fortunately my character has died, so the friendship was over in an hour :) Hope you will like him more than I did :) And again better res picture over here I need to paint my new character now... Still can't find the proper miniature.
  7. Last year at Reapercon, I took an excellent NMM course taught by the irrepressible Aaron Lovejoy. He had us paint NMM gold on this lady's shield and oh my god was I terrible. This year I picked up another copy so I could try the shield and see how I did. I actually did an okay job on it about four or five months ago but only finished the shield. Three months ago I decided I had progressed in my skill and thought I could improve on it by adding some contrast. NOPE. I couldn't recreate the colors accurately which threw the blend off, at which point I moved on to other things. Well, with the RPChallenge clock ticking down for March, I thought I'd finish her up, and oh man, did I make some bad decisions. But that's okay, now I know not to try doing hair with a ridiculously dark undercoat, among other things.
  8. Go easy on me. I wasn't really going for nmm. I just wanted black armor that looked different.
  9. My first attempt at NMM.
  10. WIP :: The Ogre Chieftain Blues Yes, I have a lot of WIPs. Big whoop. What's one more? When you have nearly a 1,000 20 minis any paint is good. So here is Reaper's Kagunk, Ogre Chieftain and he's trying out a new look. Well for me anyway. I basecoated his skin in blue, Vallejo Deep Sky Blue Then started blending Reaper's Tanned Shadow over it. I'm liking the looks so far. Yeah, there's a lot of white left to cover but it was more about the skin to start. When he's finished, since I took the time to remove his integral base, I plan to put him on this cool WoldStand display base directly. It'll almost look like a large tree's cut stump.[/size][/size]
  11. For the last 3-4/4 for the Feb RP Challenge, 2x of the Orc Marauder as seen in the LTPK. Somethin' feels a little off in the finished product but I can't tack down just what yet Better pics will likely come when I get time to setup/use my lightbox.
  12. For 2/4 of the FebRPChallenge, I painted up Kavorgh in the guidelines of the LTPK. Not -entirely- pleased with how he came out, especially the eyes, but I've determined I need brushes that hold their points better now...
  13. Hey Guys! It's me again, TheBeardedEagle. I took a lot of your feedback from my last miniature and tried to apply it to this second miniature. This guy had some armor pieces and different styles of metals as well as cloth pieces and jewelry. I had a ton of fun with this guy and again cant wait for the third. I think it is a lot stronger than my first but I feel there is still a lot of room for improvement. Again I would love to hear what you guys think and criticisms are always welcome. Cheers!
  14. This guy has been floating around my painting desk for almost a year, so I figured it was about time to finish him up. He's been the subject of experiments from 3 different minis, so it's about time I finished him before he became the subject of more! :) He's got black skin because I was testing which shade I wanted to use on Yephima; also, I wasn't sure whether I would be painting her skin up realistically or not, and wanted another mini to practice on. This was really intended to be a fast paint job, so he turned out decent table-top. :) Huzzah! --OneBoot :D EDIT: Modified a couple tags
  15. I speed paint a lot for tabletop, and this was one of those. I've been using tabletop paints as excuses to work on my NMM and I was pretty happy with the blending on the sword. I was okay with how the shield turned out, and I liked the scales on her scale-mail-dress (or whatever it was supposed to be). Less-so with the banding on the... suspenders, I guess? And I totally lost the bands on her upper arm--the texture for them kind of vanished on the lower side of her arm. Not sure if it was just bad luck with the casting of the mold, or if I used too thick paint. (If I have to ask, it's probably the paint!) I think I really need to work on my transitions for highly-detailed areas. I boiled and boiled and boiled and the sword would not straighten. Alas.
  16. I tried to make his sword and eyes glow with mixed results. Overall, he came out better than I expected.
  17. So...first of my docket of 4 (other 3 pics coming later) is this little guy I painted up for GMPathfinder for Secret Sophie. I...Don't know why I have an fascination with blue DMM, but hey, I think it worked better than my last experiment with such. I know the dark flocking got TOO dark when I glued it, and I'll need to keep that in mind for future reference. C&C Welcome
  18. This is my rendition of Neroli, Half-Orc fighter (SKU 2946). The shield was fun to paint, but I might have overdone the red a bit...
  19. Here is a group of cake toppers that I did. I think the theme this time is fantasy weaponry. None of these brides and grooms decided to use the standard Shotgun or Chainsaws that are so useful to zombie survivors, and instead favored magic bows, spells, bastard swords and shields.
  20. Greetings reaper forum. I present to you my third completed miniature Reaper's bones spear man. All paints used are reaper paints. The base coat is bone shadow airbrushed on. Then I proceeded to dry brush linen white, polished bone, and oiled leather. I airbrushed a blue for the shield. I then did some free hand on the back to simulate wood grain. The spear also has a base coat of bone shadow. The spear tip was given a custom grey base coat. I dry brushed honed steel. I then used polished silver for highlights. I then gave a precision wash of gw badab black. All comments, criticisms and banter are encouraged. Thanks Zoot
  21. While Red Box Games is my favorite miniature line the trend is that I just buy the miniatures without painting them. Frankly because they scare me. The detail is smaller than what I'm used to and I'm afraid to screw it up. It's much easier to pick up and paint other miniatures because it doesn't really matter as much if I do screw them up :) But every once in a while I do gather enough courage to pick one up and finish it. Like Birgir the dvergr. I painted this for a DnD one shot at the local gaming store. I didn't know if it would be using miniatures (and it didn't) but if it did I wanted to make sure that I had a miniature to represent the premade characters. I'm very pleased with the result even if I didn't get to use him. I'm sure there will be other opportunities.
  22. Kadrus is a Nagaji PC from my Pathfinder Jade Regent game. The player picked out #77060 - the rather plainly named Dragonman Warrior - to represent him on the table. The Story: Kadrus was captured by slavers and shipped half a world away to be some depraved noble's exotic "pet". Luckily for him, he was freed by a band of rangers opposed to the slavers trespassing through their lands. Stranded on a strange continent, with his only marketable skills being "kill things dead", Kadrus has joined the party hoping to earn enough money to eventually buy passage back to Tian Xia. The party is on the cusp of discovering an ancient artifact which will send them racing over the Crown of the World to depose an unjust tyrant. If the fates are kind, Kadrus will survive the journey to see his beloved Nagajor again! A better view of the shield: SO proud of this gem: Thanks for looking! I welcome comments and critiques!
  23. Another miniature from the box of old stuff. I don't know the name of the miniature but I think it's from Prince August.
  24. My second paint attempt, modeled after one of the characters in the D&D game I'm running, a new and young roleplayer playing a blonde female human fighter with plate armor, longsword, and a "gigantic shield", and "pink gloves", that he voices using that sort of exaggerated Monty Python/Margaret Thatcher voice. And she collects wolves. Her name was originally Jonah, as in Jonah Arc, but when he was informed Jonah is actually not generally considered to be a female name and that Jonah Arc doesn't exist, he changed it to Jenna and I wept for our youth. Yeah. (Podcast of this is going up later today, btw.) Note that I went for a design "reminiscent" of plaid... if plaid were gigantic and clearly painted on by a clumsy ogre. The shield design is loosely based on Scottish clan crests, and a Reaper paint bottlecap helped me make the circle. My basing stuff is still a continent away... but that's the beauty of using Bones, right? By the way, how hard are faces? Yikes. She looks a lot better from three feet away than on camera, to be fair.
  25. Mithril weapon and amour, horn of battle and secret Dwarven brew... Here's 14588 Dhulrekk Thulfinson, Rune Warrior of Kragmarr. He was sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I added dry branches and snow effect on the base.
