  1. Soo...title says most of it, speedpaint at reapercon, 2 brushes, 12 colors, pallet the size of a business card, and, being my first speed paint, my brain going "AAAAAAAHHHHHH!" the whole time. All in all, not bad. Picture was taken at reapercon so...yeah not the prettiest.
  2. For my March resolutionary challenge, I think I want to do something about squads, teams or units. As in squads I have started (i.e. done a test piece) but not completed. I seem to have rather a lot of them cluttering up the shelving. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. Here goes for the first squad: Ten more of the big unit of converted Mantic sci fi zombies I started in January. As I have something like 50 of them ready for painting, I expect more of these will be used to fill out the numbers if needed. I get clearer pictures with not so many in the frame at a time. These are made up several types of Mantic miniatures: Kings of War Fantasy Zombies, Deadzone Plague Zombies, Kings of War Fantasy Ghouls, and Warpath Corporation Troopers. All hacked up and glued together. If you think some of the bitz’ are somewhat off scale, it is because the Deadzone Plague Zombie parts are more “heroically†proportioned ( = thicker/ larger) than the older fantasy and warpath minis. 25mm bases, plastic / restic conversions.
  3. Continuing on with the Febuary challenge goals I set myself, (painting at least one of each from the following categories: Reaper Bones, Oathsworn, All Quiet of the Martian Front, Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40.000, Kings of War, Deadzone, DreadBall, Mars Attacks, Shadows of Brimstone, Sedition Wars, Drake, Grendel Productions something or other, and to finish something that currently stands around half-done on the shelf of shame), I have done a few minis over the weekend, As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. Here goes for Warhammer 40.000: oh yes, obvious reference to the Genestealer’s true inspiration there… A Space Hulk Tyranid Genestealer. Yes I am fudging a bit by calling this a Warhammer 40.000 mini, as it actually it is from the boardgame Space Hulk. But it is perfectly good for 40k as well, so there. This is an extremely speedy speedpaint, A bit sloppy, but that can be rectified by spending just a little more time. all in all, this is really quick to do: black undercoat, brown drybrush, grey drybrush details, two tone grey claws, teeth and stripes on head. Gloss varnish on head and claws. Base drybrushed steel, then reddish brown and washed with darktone ink. Done. Effectively maybe 4-5 minutes painting time. 15 Including waiting for the gloss varnish and ink to dry It should be perfectly possible to have the whole load of 22 Genestealers done in a couple of hours. We will test that assumption, maybe for next months resolution (I am thinking aliong the lines "finishing some squads that have been started")
  4. A Pathfinder Red Dragon I "speedpainted" sometime in mid-to-late 2014. My wife and I took Wappel's Shaded Basecoating class at Reapercon last year and I've been trying to familiarize myself with the style since I am somewhat impatient and don't like spending 20 or 30 hours on a single mini. This was one of the pieces I applied the technique to. It took me about three and a half hours, two of which involved repeatedly trying to make his stomach not look like complete and utter crap. The premise is a pretty simple one--Wappel advises starting dark and working light, but the rationale is that the surface is dark by default and the light is applied to the surface. With this guy, the light is coming from inside him, so start light and work dark. I started with the most hideous fluorescent yellow basecoat ever. Seriously, it was awful. I could barely tell what was painted and what wasn't. After that, it was just successive layers of darker and darker paint. I did a lot of wet-blending on this guy, and when that stuff dried, a lot of drybrushing--not that you can necessarily tell--it was one of my first real attempts at wet-blending and the demarcation between colors is still pretty obvious in places. I had three somewhat contrasting methods to my madness--first, joints should be lighter, and solid things cooler. This usually meant the edges of scales should be dark and the bits between them light. Second, bits further away from the "core" of the dragon should be hotter and more fluid, so the hands and tail and frill ended up light. Third, the places where he'd need a lot of structural strength, like his torso and the arm-bits in his wings, should in general be darker and cooler in implied temperature. Some of this runs a bit counter to how Wappel approaches it, and it contradicts its own logic in places. I like how it turned out anyway--at least when I don't have my glasses on! The lava effect on the base is kind of pathetic, though, I have to say. (Side note: in the interests of disclosure, I didn't notice initially that one of the lights for our lightbox fell off when I took the picture, so I did a bunch of brightness/contrast/saturation fugging with these photos to make them look like the real thing does. They are reasonably close now! But yes, there was some postprocessing.)
  5. Here's the final pictures of my speed paint for the Dragonborn Paladin. He could be much better, but I really wanted to just speed-paint him and get him to table top quality without spending too much time on him. Anyhow, C&C welcomed and appreciated! Reaper SKU: 77060 - Dragonman Warrior Material: Bones WIP Thread
  6. For the D&D Game I'm running right now, I'm going to attempt to speed-paint a few figures. Told the guys I have a lot on my plate right now with some dioramas that need to get done before xmas, but I usually spend way too much time on individual figures to make them look really good. These are the two I'm working on right now for the character who plays a dragonborn paladin. The paladin is his main PC, but he also has a squire named "Ned" that I gave him who is non-combat, and there to carry his stuff around. Paladin Dragonborn - 77060: Dragonman Warrior Ned the Squire (aka packmule) - 77141: Townsfolk: Oswald the Overladen Even though I'm going to be speed-painting and taking a lot of short-cuts, I still like to customize the figures for my group if possible. To this end, I've converted his sword to an axe (a bit from RBG) and changed his shield putting the symbol of his god on it. I cut the arm with the shield off here, then cut a piece of plasticard to size and covered his original shield design, after that I took a piece of art for the head of Bahamut (his god), printed it out to size, then traced it onto a piece of cardstock, then traced that onto another piece of plasticard and glued the cardstock/plasticard together and flipped it over so that the cardstock was attached to the shield and fit better. It was originally facing to the left, this just flipped it to face right so it'd fit the shield size better. A couple of WIP pics of the paladin himself - Back to the shield - Oswald (Ned) is currently slathered with brown liner and the paladin has some more paint on him, just forgot to take pics late last night. C&C Welcomed and Appreciated!
  7. After spending so long on some contest entries, I decided to whip up a quick monster type. Didn't realize he was supposed to be a flesh golem when I started painting; just that he was some sort of freaky undead. This one took two afternoons.
  8. In The Worlds In My Head, there exist two elemental races with a common creation myth and an undying enmity: The Nathi (hereafter referred to as the "Elemental Nathi") and the Silmn. Both humanoid, the Elemental Nathi body was a black light-eating metal and you felt rather than saw their features. The Silmn were creatures of exquisite beauty with bodies of crystalline flesh - appearing as normal humans made of translucent frosted glass. Centuries of war were, of course, inevitable as the races spread across the galaxy and finally met Humanity. There now exists a loose confederation of Humanity allied with the Silmn, Humanity allied with the hybrid race resulting from Elemental Nathi mixing with Humans (disconcertingly also called "Nathi") and out in the far galactic rim, the Elemental Nathi and their spiderlike network of influence. The Silmn have fared badly in the war, and it is only due to the appearance of The Seraph that they have managed to hold their ground. None can fault their courage and determination however, and here is a platoon of them in the adaptive armor that has served them for decades: Assembly and painting: 1. Decapitate a bunch of Bones NOVA troopers. 2. Recapitate them with the helmets of ancient hoplites with the crest removed. 3. Modify their guns into obvious energy weapons 4. Spray white with a bones-friendly primer 5. Abandon the project for 6 months 6. Glop on thinned RMS Snow Shadow. Let it dry and work its self-shading magic. 7. Paint the metals brass. 8. Heavily wash with : 1pt RMS Black Ink, 2pts RMS Flow Improver, 2pts RPP Gloss Finish 9. Highlight metals with MSP Honed Steel 10. Base. 11. ? 12. PROFIT!
  9. First up, Victoriana from Bombshell miniatures. I want to thank those who gave me advice in this thread http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/50314-bombshell-victoriana-need-color-advice/?hl=victoriana. Obviously I went with purple dress in a muddy outdoorsy scene. Then I finally managed to finish 2 mouslings that had been sitting there almost completed since 2011.... Finally some speedpainted bones, less than 2 each on paintjob for vampire chick and innkeeper, about an hour for miss strumpet. Edited to add SKU to title and added more tags Thanks for looking!
  10. Had a bit of a paint party instead of playing D&D this week. In the four-hour paint session, I painted up Mr. Bones from start to finish. For a quick job, I'm pretty pleased with him, although since much of his basecoat is P3 paint, he's very satiny and the photos show it. I may take some more shots once he has some dullcote, but we'll see if that actually happens. Successes: rust on the shovel works pretty well. It's an easy effect, and I could have spent more time on it, but I'm happy with the way it looks (and I think it looks like it has wear in the right places). Texture on the robes.Although the highlights are rough, they look like a roughspun fabric, which is what I'm going for. The effect is hard to see in the photos due to the aforementioned satin finish. And he looks good in a short time! Needs work: Again, highlights are rough. But, I think I'm starting to comprehend painting black a little better. Luckily, the primarily black robes means there's not much shading for me to screw up! Without further ado: Can't wait to use him as an evil halfling cleric in my Eberron campaign, but don't tell my players! C&C always appreciated!
  11. As part of this weekend's speed painting endeavours I finished the 2nd and 3rd of my Bones Bugbears. The first one got a Back-2-Base-ix Celtic Ruins base and as I didn't want to rebase these two I gave one red trims and the other blue. Painting approach; No Undercoat Basecoat in appropriate colours, Saphire Blue, Blood Red, Oiled Leather, Russet Brown, Shadowed Steel, Mahogany Brown, Tanned Shadow. Wash the whole mini with Black Wash. Retouch the Shadowed Steel to get some sharper highlights. Apply highlights of Tanned Shadow, Tanned Flesh, Tanned Highlight to skin. Paint nails and teeth as you do the skin starting with Tanned Flesh, Tanned Highlight & final highlight with Linen White. Paint eyes with Linen White, Pure Black and outline with Mahogany Brown. Drybrush Hair areas Intense Brown. Paint base green and edge pure black, flock. Seal (to be done this evening now that I have enough models to make it worth doing). This takes about 2 hours (plus drying time) to do, adding another model or two to that process wouldn't slow it down noticeably. The slowest process is the base coat and skin just due to the paint changes and the care it takes to get paint in only particular spots.
