  1. I was searching about for a fourth mini to slap some paint on for the RPChallenge this month and came across this guy in the beauty pageant thread. "He's a really neat sculpt," I thought. "I bet I could do some really kick-elf lighting effects with his lure." The banded mail greens are various blends of 29846 Spruce Green and some other assorted greens and yellows, which is a really fantastic nigh-turquoise color. Glazing a purple over it gives you a rather neat effect. A lot of the fishy-color is 29811 Turf Green, because why not? I have these Bones II colors sitting out, I might as well try them. I'm not as much a fan of turf green yet but I'm sure I'll find something for it eventually. Until then it's sort of a muddy green, the kind I often make by accident. I didn't get the contrast high enough to really pull off the OSL I was hoping, at least not in photos. (It's a little more apparent in person, where you can spin him around, but that doesn't mean I got the contrast right.) I also made the absolutely hilarious mistake of not looking at the official Reaper paint job, so I had no idea that thing in his mouth was actually a face. Oh well! It's a tongue now. The most hideous tongue the world has ever known.
  2. This little fellow is actually my worst paint job to date. That's because he was an exercise in seeing how quickly I could get a tabletop quality mini that I was happy with. The answer: approximately 5 hours. ...Yeah, I'm totally not cut out for speed painting, lol. I did try my best to let go of all my perfectionist tendencies and do a minimal amount of touch-ups, as well as using unthinned paint to make things go faster, but in the end I got rather distracted by the fiddly details (like eyes, nails, lining things). It was quite refreshing to let loose and not care if it came out perfect, though. So even though to me he looks really sloppy, I feel he's a step forward in my ability to just relax and have FUN with painting! :) I REALLY like the blues I used for the skin, they're so pretty together! I've been looking for an excuse to use Desert Sky for awhile now. Oh, and the reason why he looks like he's supposed to be holding something in his left hand is because I stole his sword for another figure quite some time ago. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  3. Okay, folks. Here's my first attempt. My poor orc has no eyes, but other than that, he's not totally embarassing. I welcome all helpful suggestions!
  4. 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
  5. This is Ragnar Lothbrok from Gripping Beast Miniatures and he's a perfect illustration of why my unpainted pile is flooding over the brim. I bought the figure the second week of january this year and he's been left semi painted for half a year. So, in my everlasting quest to convert my unpainted pile into a full color army I finally willed myself into finishing him. There are some areas that I should have done better (due to sloth the blacklining is to aggressive for example) but all and all I'm quite happy with how he turned out.
  6. Howdy y'all, So long story short, Bones Kickstarted (pun intended) my painting time again, after a multi-year hiatus. However, I was wondering if anyone had experience scuplting Green Stuff onto Bones? I have a a Tiefling barbarian with Diabolic Transformation as a feat, and I wanted to use a new mini for the "hulking monster" form, so I chose this: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/succubus/sku-down/77067 Since we have some younger generations playing with us, the 'full nude' isn't an option really (I personally couldn't care less). I would be wanting to craft something akin to the "slave leia" type outfit (because reasons) and plan to hack off the whip and use a brass rod as a base and make it into a "sinister" spear if possible...plan B was to get a weapon sprue during 12 days of reaper to graft into/through the hilt of the whip...has anybody ever done anything like this? I have some very basic green-stuff know how...though ideas and suggestions are the reason this topic is here...any/all advice would be appreciated. Cheers y'all, -NoZ
  7. Ever since my grandson saw the movie (300)...he has asked me to paint him a spartan miniature...he also plays on an international flag football team that are called the (Spartans). So this piece was painted for him and mounted on a varnished walnut display base...He requested that I keep it simple with no trees, flowers, etc...just the spartan warrior with helm, shield and spear (like the characters in the movie). FIGURE...Ral Partha (Titan # 01-108)...circa 1985-86.
  8. My Bones skeleton spearman. C&C always welcome.
  9. I picked this one up for one of my players who is playing a Mwangi (PFRPG African) ranger who fights with spear and shield. Unfortunately that player had to drop out of my game, but I'm still going to paint up the mini the way I originally planned. First he got de-elfed. Chopped off those pointy things and shaped the helmet ear-holes so it looked more-or-less normal. Here's the base coat. I've been struggling this winter with my paints - the low humidity drastically changes how they work and I'm not yet skilled enough to adapt. I tried mixing paints with more matte medium to avoid chalkiness, but ended up with thick-looking basecoats. With regular water, they look chalky and dry out quickly (I know, I know, get a wet palette). Anyway, here he is. I painted up another warrior with the same skin color - I'll post her soon, once I get her basecoat finished.
