  1. It's me again! After my semi-successful bout with the DDM Baaz Draconian, I decided to pick out another victim subject to experiment some more techniques and paints on. Aaaand let's see what's behind Door Number Two!: What we have here are two DDM Harbinger set Skeletons. The one on the left is for reference, while the one on the right has already been primed. Not a bad lot for what it was used for, but they completely missed the paint on the face of the latter one. Though they're interesting figures, for skeletons they look a bit too.......shiny. Sure, they could be newly stripped corpses, but what's the likelihood of that? And why would you keep perfectly good armour on such easily destroyed mooks? Let's see if we can make him look as neglected as those miniatures on your Shelf of Shame!
  2. Armoured Skeletons (FGV314) by North Star Part of the Thaw of the Lich Lord campaign for FROSTGRAVE Table Top Quality _________________________________________________________________ Your intrepid warband marches confidently on the outskirts of the frozen city. After a long campaign clearing out the area your brave band of soldiers are ready to pursue deeper in to the white laden ruins. The cold wind, although bitter, has become manageable for your warband. Swiftly the winds begin to rush in from the inner part of the frozen Acropolis, deathly cold. Visibility is no more than twenty to thirty feet in front. Ahead you can see the white and grey haze of snow concealing the ruins. Your captain shouts, "halt" as the warband freezes in it's tracks. A slight sound of creaking then the dull murmur of metal sliding across stone and ice. The sound echos through the winds shaking your men to their cores. Slowly but suddenly a troop of skeletons flanked by two heavily armoured skeletons appear in the distance. It's just as you feared... _________________________________________________________________ -=The idea was to make them look like they are slowly marching out of the snow blind. It's so cold snow is sticking to them. =- -= The snow flocking turned out better than I expected. I copied the techniques of some fellow Frostgrave players here on the forums and I'm very pleased with how it turned out. Although with these it's hard to see but some other Frostgrave miniatures (which you'll see later) It turned out excellently. =- -=This has been an entire painting season for me. LOTS of wargaming stuff and it is all finished around now. I hope you guys like it.=-
  3. Here are a collection of three skeleton swordsmen. I prepped these three at Reapercon for the purpose of practicing some freehand on the shields. After taking Jen Greenwald's Freehand for the 2D Impaired, I knew I'd need some immediate practice. That's one lesson I've learned from classes at Reapercon past; if I don't practice the topics shortly after the class, I lose most of the information. Group Shot: Some individual shots of the shields.
  4. I started this guy last year at Reapercon in the Convert a colossal skeleton class, and entered him into the open category at this year's Reapercon; he earned a bronze. WIP is located here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62739-colossal-skeleton-conversion-for-reapercon-2016/
  5. Like the title says, I'm planning on converting the Bones Colossal Skeleton and entering it at Reapercon next year in the open category. Here's what I'm starting with: I'm planning on the using the cape as, well, a cape. I'm swapping out the hammer for the sword, and I'm going to be grafting that other piece onto his front, over his pelvis. I'm going to be adding a shield to his right arm; I haven't decided if I'm going to remove the dagger or not. Thoughts? I'm also undecided about possibly altering the pose of one or both arms. I'll be sculpting fur across his shoulders to hide the join with the cape, and I'm going to be armoring his torso. I haven't decided if I'm going to do anything to the legs or not. Here's the progress on some chain mail: Not too bad so far, IMO anyway. I'm not 100% sure about that tattered bit at the bottom, though. So, please let me know what you're thinking; any and all C&C will be welcome. I'd like to do the best I possibly can with this. The sculpting is going to be my biggest hurdle; I've never really done any.
  6. I'm currently working on the Bones 1 Grave Danger set as I head down the home stretch in my blog goal to paint and post all my Bones 1 Kickstarter minis. Just 11 more to go! This week I painted the Arrius, Skeletal Warrior, figure. I wanted to do something different than the standard grey/silver armor look, so I decided to go with red armor to make him a little more visually exciting. Other than that, it was a straight basic tabletop paint job. For the full step by step painting article, please see my blog: Arrius, Skeletal Warrior
  7. Working on the Undead Dwarf from Stonehaven Miniatures on a slotted base from the same. The resin base is flagstone and has a skeleton hand coming out of the ground. Primed with Reaper Grey Primer and lined with Reaper Walnut Brown. Still have some more lining to do. Stay tuned.
  8. A trio of powerful Undead from Reaper, finished up with some other Undead encounters intended for Frostgrave games. The group: The Lich King (Barrow Warden Mystic) The Giant Skeleton (or should it be Skeleton Giant) And the Colossal Skeleton, so powerful he's busted through the dungeon ceiling (or backdrop, at least)
  9. When I first saw the thread over on the Terrain Forum, where lowlylowlycook was painting up Kalladrax to use as Frostgrave terrain, I thought that it was a really cool idea; and I decided I wanted do the same for my Frostgrave games. So, I picked up a copy of Kalladrax, and last Thursday I got started on the project, and just finished up yesterday. If you'd like to see the full step by step Work-in-Progress thread, please see here on my Frostgrave Terrain thread; otherwise, on to the photos! :) I'm really happy with how this piece came out. I think it will be quite the show-stopper when used as the centerpiece on my Frostgrave table at upcoming conventions.
  10. I started this guy in a hangout last weekend. Worked on him over the course of the week. Finished last night, and based this afternoon. C&C welcome.
  11. Painted this for a friend who requested an egyptian eye to be painted on the standard. I don't do much freehand stuff, hopefully he will like it. I was going for a magic bottle containing maybe spirits inside, but could not make a ghost face on the bottle without it looking like Casper. :P Hope you enjoy
  12. Showing off all the things I've painted recently (over the weekend, actually). As a note, none of them have finished bases - I'll do the bases later. Here's the Darksteel Knight (reaper, bones, 77148), and the Mithril Knight (reaper, bones, 77023). With the Mithril Knight, I'm not sure if he's "done" or not... I was thinking about darkening his sword's steel to make it stand out a little more (he looks almost too "washed out"), and perhaps adding some pale blue filigree to his armor... And maybe a thin coat of pearlizing stuff to his everything to really try to add to the "mithril" effect. Here's my Frost Lich (reaper, bones, 77280) and my Shadowmancer (reaper, bones, 77285). I really like how the shadowmancer turned out, and the "blue" effect on the frost lich seems to work okay - but he just doesn't seem "perfect" somehow. Maybe later I'll learn to do some better "glow" effects. Who doesn't love Mr. Bones? (reaper, bones, 77360) I love this jumping spider. I painted her after a jumping spider that I found on my back door. (reaper, bones, 77126) I want a lot more of this figure to paint, I could have a lot of fun making different colors of spider. Meet Mrs. Beatrice. She's apparently from a game called "Zombicide". I love her.
  13. Hey guys back again with Leisynn the mercenary mage¬ Although for my campaign he is the mighty Gorloth the Necromancer. Raiser of the court of Skeleton kings, underling to the indestructible Corvaxx the Shadow dragon!( I am waiting for the right model for him! As always comments are wanted and appreciated!
  14. Did you know, if you search the store for "Mr. Bones" he does not come up. Well, he does, but he's buried under hundreds of his plastic friends. I painted him over the Memorial Day weekend during my paint binge challenge and tried out one of my Happy Seppuku flagstone base stamps for the first time.
  15. Finally got photos taken from my Memorial Day weekend paint binge challenge. This guy came out much better than expected. I cut a great big chunk off the rock pile he was standing on and put him into one of those depressed bases with some sand.
  16. Hey guys! After much agonising on what miniature to use for the fourth king I decided on a mounted knight figure! I am still not 100 percent on the choice but felt it was different enough to be a great addition to the court of the skeleton kings! I hope you love it,, As always comments are wanted and appreciated!
  17. 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!
  18. Hey guys today I am submitting the second of four skeleton kings for my Dungeons and Dragons adventure! The first was my Jade skeleton king! Now I have done my Ruby king I hope you love it as always comments are wanted and appreciated!

    D&D NPC: Beholder

    Made my own Beholder (sculpting WIP:http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/67297-beholder/) and I can tell you, there's no way escaping it's ray of time consuming. Well it got finished at last, so here it is. Do you like it?
  21. For Halloween!! I'll be bringing him with me to the Artists Conference
  22. Perhaps my favorite for uniqueness from the recent Hammer and Forge Kickstarter for Song of Blades and Heroes from Ganesha Games, I painted up a group of their Undead Dwarves. I never thought I'd say I painted a Dwarf Vampire or Dwarf Banshee, but now I have!
  23. Here are some shots of the bones colossal skeleton guarding the dungeon entrance in a dangerous canyon. I was very excited to spring this surprise on my players
  24. Hey, folks! I'm brand new here, though I've been lurking for awhile, and brand new to miniature painting in general. This is my absolute -first- attempt at painting a mini. I tossed around whether or not to post, but why the heck not, eh? The earlier I get constructive criticism, the earlier I can put it to use! I've been wanting to try my hand at painting for awhile now, and finally decided to get a learn to paint kit. I set right to it after receiving it yesterday. He's by no measure great, but I'm fairly happy with him for a first attempt. At the least, I was never tempted to strip him down and start over. :P If anyone has any constructive criticism or tips, they'd be greatly appreciated. The most trouble I ran into was with dry brushing highlights; I seemed to either go far too light or far too heavy on it, with no real middle ground. In any case, if I had any doubt about sticking with this as a hobby, they were long gone last night. Down the rabbit hole I go! :P (Edited to correct the absolute mess that my image uploads were.>_<)
  25. Mr Bones, kind of what you think he would look like. Enjoy guys :).
