  1. Thanks to everyone who passed on swampy/marsh basing tips. Experimented with a few and got an effect I liked. My jungle Tatzlwyrm now has some suitably wet ground to lurk in.
  2. Design by CastNPlay Printed on my Elegoo Mars Base is from MicroArtstudio. Part of my Lost World Project. WIP here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/page/169/#comments **************** David Attenborough's Voice Over: Nature can be cruel and especially so in the Jungle and Swamps of the Lost World. Huge predators roam this place so a smaller creature needs to be smart to survive. Here we can see the Common Swamp C
  3. So this past February, I got around to painting up these Bog Skeletons. I was in need of more swamp zombies for Rangers of Shadow Deep and had these guys laying around and figured it was the perfect excuse for painting them. Though I am a big fan of bog-bodies, I decided to lean more into a swampy look. I figured they could be a bit more colorful and I got a strong vision of a green-tone horde of skellies. Plus bogs are notorious for preserving bodies and these guys missing quite a bit of their flesh, organs, and hair. More Below the Spoiler: I had a lot of fun wor
  4. So I finished the Undead Regiment. Background story.. the Vampire Queen lost a big battle, fled to a swamp/jungle area. Subdued the swampfolk and now faces a rebellion. Some swamp creatures follow her, others oppose her. Here is the full regiment. Mixed Manufacturers. Mixed types of Undead. I will post them separatly or in smaller groups for better pics of them all. I will try not to flood the forum, so today the regiment and the first solo/smaller groups. The rest will follow shortly. The Vampire Queens heraldry is red and purple so all the Undead have this colours somewhere. Al
  5. Hello everyone! After seeing @Kangaroorex Grenadier 9601, Black Dragon, I decided it was time for me to salvage mine from the shelf of shame. Thanks for the motivation Kangaroorex. This model was sculpted by William Watt in 1988. Unfortunately, the one I bought some years ago had a few battle scars. It has a broken horn and a broken wing claw. Its main tail stinger and tongue were also broken. As a reference, the base is 75mm wide.
  6. I loved everything about this guy from bones 4 pictures to delivery to painting to result!
  7. Hey, all! Its been a little while and I finally sat down and painted something. I put these guys together and I'm really happy with the shading. I wanted to put some water on the bases, so I tried wrapping them with plastic and pouring realistic water in. It... did not go according to plan. The water cured unevenly, shrank, left weird tide lines, partially peeled off... Basically everything that could go wrong with it went wrong. Luckily, I had sealed the model before pouring the water, so I was able to peel it off with an exacto and some tweezers. I salvaged what I could and I think they stil
  8. I wish my phone camera could get better photos of this mini, but the contrast is so wide that it just doesn't want to cooperate. I wanted to practice some OSL, and I chose violet. I also wanted to try building a different kind of base, and the wraith seemed like it would look at home in a bog. I think the back turned out better than the front. I may go back and deepen some of the front shadows at some point. Tips on OSL and other things are welcome!
  9. And more Zombies ( they come in large numbers, can't help it ).
  10. It took a bit to get here, but I finally got the latest tutorial out. This video shows how I go about making swamp bases. Let me know what you think.
  11. I don't usually use so much gloss varnish and not the most exciting array of colors, but I think I captured what a wet, stinky, dirty ol' swamp troll should look like.
  12. Another one finished for my Lost World Project. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=71#comment-1531812 This is an older sculpt from Grenadier. I used a little water effect on the base to make it appear more swamplike. And I clipped off some plastic aquarium plant pieces to paint as jungle plants. Added a tiny piece of driftwood from the garden centre. Hope you like it. Feel free to comment.
  13. hey all! hopefully am posting in right place. I'm after Bones minis that fit a swamp theme. I've done the Figure Finder, and got my first order in already (frogs, squogs and mushroom men). I'm designing an RPG encounter/adventure in a swamp to go on my swamp board. So in a way the RPG is going to fit the minis, which are going to fit the board, which is probably a bass ackwards way of doing it but it is fun :D These are some of the ones I've picked out so far for my March order: 03146: Frog Men (2) 02630: Frogmen 77273: Dragon Hatchling Black 03243: Swam
  14. My latest project, complete. You can find the WIP thread here. I did an experiment, using ridges of dirt flocking to hold in water effects. It actually worked out reasonably well, though next time I'll know to build up the rest of the base more. I also decided this one was female, on the basis that she's noticeably larger than the other two. I'm rather happy with how the shield came out here. It looked a bit like a horseshoe crab to me, so I wanted to make it look nice and chitinous, as though she tore it from the back of some great swamp arthropod. M
  15. Recently decided to paint up McTavish from Malifaux. I don't play the game, but I wanted to paint an alligator. Definitely gave my greens a workout on this one. I'm really happy with how the belly scales came out. I used tusk ivory and then the GW sepia wash, then re-highlighted with more tusk ivory and a little linen white.
  16. Two of Reapers metal Dragon Hatchlings. Although they are listed as Fire and Swamp hatchlings, I didn't exactly paint them that way. They were for a friend's up and coming Dragon Island campaign. Should be a nice addition the the battles to come. They were more of an experiment in colors for me and may end up painting one of Reapers larger dragons using one of their color schemes.
  17. Not sure where this belongs, but I could use some advice on it so here it is. I'm working on this for my pathfinder red dragon that will actually be green ;^). The logs aren't glued down yet and they will have some moss growing and a splash of realistic water on them. It seems like it could use more detail...just don't know what. This is my first attempt at anything like this so I am at a loss. Any suggestions to improve it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  18. This is the Bones figure 77267: Kallaguk, Troll King, who I keep thinking of as a marsh or swamp troll. He is a bit wobbly. His ankles are very thin and he tends to tip forward (as might be visible in a few photos). On a flat surface instead of a plinth he is straightened out by the spike on his club. I think he would have a difficult time balancing in any material except Bones. He was part of my year-end round up and Conga Line of finishing half-done figures. There is also a much older WIP thread here.
  19. Hello all! Finished the base for my take on Cichastus, so he is ready for display.... (WIP) He isn't glued down to the flying base post yet... the neckid base As always C&C welcome! George Edit Adding some new pics with a good camera and good lighting... Without the base Just the base Easier to see the colors now... George
  20. Folks this is the lovely Bones troll that Pochi sent me for the fall exchange. I am sorry for the delay in posting pictures but the Troll suffers from weak ankles and I had to let him lean back to get decent pictures. ( bassically stood him on his side and let gravity do its thing). After taking these pictures I will be attempting to stiffen up those ankles so that he can stay upgright permanently! Fair warning this is picture heavy as there was sooooooo much on this mini and his base I just couldn't keep the number of pictures down. I also apologize for my poor photography skills ,,
  21. These are frogman warriors from the new Bones II Kickstarter figures, sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Like the accompanying frog shaman, these critters are full of character and interesting detail. I painted them up like common meadow leopard frogs, the sort of spotted green ones I played with as a child, because they seemed a bit big and burly to be tropical tree frogs. The one with the spear and human-face-shield is 92681; the one with the fork and turtleshell shield is 92682. WIP thread here. Just as a side note: Does anyone know how to mak
  22. This is the mini I painted for robinh for the Fall Exchange. It is Kallaguk from Bones II. Robin asked for a monster and said he liked orange (grin). I tried to work some orange in here and there. I tried to paint him to look somewhat amphibious. Robin's mini got to be my guinea pig for several things I have never done before. This is the first sculpting I have ever done and the first time I have attempted water. Both turned out ok, I definitely need more practice but overall I liked the finished project. Some of the pictures make me cringe because they seem to shine giant spot
  23. These are two turtle warriors from the Bones II Kickstarter. I glued them to fender washers for weight and balance before painting them. The color palette is more muddy and earthy than normal for me. I wanted to make them look like alligator snapping turtles, the terror of my youth. One of them has a greener shell because that's a natural variation. The turtle shell shield is painted like an Eastern Box Turtle, an inoffensive little North American forest-dwelling turtle. WIP thread here. Spikeshell Warrior with shield and club: Spikeshell Warrior with two-h
  24. This one started out primed with Reaper Brown Liner (not shown). First I very thinly washed color over it, green on the base and two shades of blue over the body, allowing the Brown Liner to show through.
  25. Hi all, I per my habit, I painted my bones mini by batch, and the theme for this one was "the dark swamp". I imagined that the swamp was plagued by a new aquatic creature. So the current inhabitants of the swamp (Troll, frogmen and turlemen) banded together to rid the pond from this thing. (As you can tell, writing fluff is not my forte...) And a few pics of the troll: The tree was sulpted in clay, the base of the scenery is insulation foam, the vegetation is taken from dollar store easter decor... C&C welcome
