  1. The following are video tutorials from YouTube contributors that have been organized into categories for easy reference. I have created many great works of art from the following: How to Paint Miniatures: Complete Painting Tutorials The Basics: Painting Segmented Tutorials Airbrush Basics: Tutorials & Techniques Bases & Terrain: Designs & Ideas Cast Fantasy Miniatures Using Rubber Molds Make a Painting Video Make a Round Surface Sander Make Barbed/Razor Wire Make Hose Pipes and/or Tentacles Make Rope, Cable & Chains Make Washes Paint a Fire Creature Paint a Frost Creature P
  2. A lot of times, I see people asking for advice on how to do a conversion, or expressing uncertainty about having the skills to do one. So, I decided to create (what I hope will be) a helpful topic to cover that area. I'm aiming this primarily at beginners, or those that 'don't think they can', but hopefully everyone will find something useful or interesting here. First off, let's dispel the 'I can't/I'm not good enough' myth. Nonsense! If you can operate simple mechanical devices, you have all the skills you need to perform simple conversions. It's easy and fun, all it takes is some practi

  5. Hi friends! We have another project to share with you in our continuing series where Buglips and I paint the same figure using our own very different from each other approaches to miniature painting. If you're not familiar with this series, you can check out our previous topics: 03100: Thanis the Bonecaller 01614: Con Crud 2017 Convention Zombie 02818: Bugbear Warrior For this project, we decided to paint Scorpius Rex Dracus, which is an older figure in the back catalog of Reaper - just look at the number! 02017! He's one of the OG's of the Reaper catalog! Our usual
  6. So people have been talking about airbrushing again, and since being on the hangout, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a live tutorial? I did some research with the help of the First Lady Thing & and the Forum Mascot, and it seems that the noise levels of needed equipment is low enough to not bother my household, or overpower the audio of the hangouts. (I can airbrush inside due to my airbrush station...) If people were interested, I would try to schedule it for a Friday or Saturday night, around 9pm EST. I would start with the basics, this is an airbrush, these are th
  7. So I was asked to do a step by step tutorial on how I did the rust on my Wyrmgear [located here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/56248-77177-rusty-wyrmgear/ ] so this morning I did just that with three of my Secret Weapon bases from my Bag O' Crap. I hope you find it useful! Here's the three I chose, washed and ready to be painted. Six paints are used [pictured] and two brush sizes [pictured] So first I cover them in brown liner and let that dry Next, I dab at it with my Ancient Bronze. Throughout this whole tutorial, I dab with my brushes. It's a bit rough o
  8. Standby for massive dump in 3... 2... 1... Chopping this up into a few pieces for easy posting/consumption. Where I've been: Video games (Xumenicus#1118, if you're on Battle.net), bought a new house, running a fly fishing tournament for a treehugger non-profit, part-running my treehugger fly fishing non-profit local chapter, some other random stuff, and yeah -- here we are. I promise to paint more. Seriously. I just need to paint and sculpt more. I also need to fish more. And game more. I guess this is a thing: Apparently, I need deadlines in order to get an
  9. I'm going to try again here, and just leave a link to my channel. I have almost 100 videos at this point, and have covered a lot of stuff. Production is improving with each video. I'm a one man operation whom started filming about a year ago. So, you will realize very quickly that the newer videos are much clearer, more in-camera, and concise. Patrons are 3 weeks ahead of the regular release schedule. I release a new video every week. Ghools' Channel
  10. I'm starting to get lost here, so I figured I'd make an index of stuff I've posted. Many of these are loaded with enough pics and text that they're almost mini-tutorials. Questions and comments are always welcome. If you don't get a reply within a couple days, find me on Facebook, or add me on Battle.net (Xumenicus#1118).

  11. Hi All, So for those that pay the least bit of attention to what I paint, you may have noticed that I paint mostly Ral Partha figures, which is a brand I really do enjoy quite a lot. I've been painting figures for their online catalogue for a number of years, and I just recently tried my hand at my first little tutorial, which was posted over at their site. If you are at all curious, you could find it here: http://www.ralpartha.com/index.php/blog/119-painting-guide-eyes-and-faces It is by no means the end-all, be-all of painting eyes, but just shows the way I ty
  12. We are doing a video tutorial series on how we have been painting figures. The past couple years we have been working out a way for those who are inept (like me) and those who are adept (like Christie) to be able to paint figures fast, and well enough that they look good in person and in a photo. We have made substantial progress incorporating and modifying techniques we have learned from others (many on these forums, classes at reaper-con, etc.) Here is out latest video, step two of our pre-shading process. Feedback and questions always welcome!
  13. What could be a more essential wargaming terrain piece than the common hill? No matter what period, no matter what setting, hills will be featured. They add visual interest and tactical complexity to any gaming surface, may it be modular boards, gaming mats or just a green table-cloth. They may be an essential piece of gaming terrain, but making naturalistic looking hills that not only allow easy placement of models, but also easy placement and removal of trees or other terrain features, can be a challenge. In this post I show you my take on such hills and try to solve some of the problems
  14. Anybody have any tips, or know of any good tutorials for painting gems? I have a lot of figures with little gems on them and I'm just not sure how to get the gems to really stand out. The small surface area of the gems in particular makes it difficult for me. (Being a noob doesn't help, but figured a good tut might at least get me trying the right way!) As always, thanks in advance for any assistance!
  15. EDITED: I tried to fix the pics since the originals were on photobucket. Apologies if they're a bit off! Ok, face painters! Have you always wondered how to get nice smooth skin blend? I'm going to do my best to take you step by step through a face. I could probably be persuaded to also move on to other skin areas, but let's start simple. Now, while snapping photos I realized this blending is not going to be as neat and clean as I usually like it because the photoing process did interfere with a few layers. But, we'll get it smooth in the end! Are you ready?!
  16. Bob in the role as Tim The Enchanter. I saw parts of the movies, seeing Bob throwing fire around and knew I need a Fireball for him. :-) Small Fireball Tutorial: 01. Get a ~0,65mm needle and glue a small plastic bead on it. Some have balls at the end. 02. For the fire around the needle and the ball I used a small hotgluegun trying not to get a to smoothed surface. 03. After the hotglue was cold I tried with the hot a more uneaven surface on the hotglue, again. 04. I drilled a 0,65mm hole in the hand. (better use a hand drilling tool, not a machine!) 05. Bended the needle a little bit 06. u
  17. So - this is my first time "painting fire". It's not bad, but it's not good either... Advice for how to do it better next time? PS. I know that this figure is supposed to be a water creature, but I "made it work" to be a fire elemental lady who's an "ash mage" of sorts or whatever...
  18. So I was asked to do a tutorial on how I painted the marble on my Coraldrax [seen here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/54577-coraldrax-sea-kaladrax/ ] like I did with my tutorial on painting rust: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/56249-siris-guide-to-painting-rust/ So here we go! This isn't going to be as good as my rust tutorial I think, it's using acrylics [since that's how I did it on Coraldrax, and I wanted to show how I did that] and really on Coraldrax it's barely visible underneath him, so I didn't worry about doing a pretty job with it. However, I think
  19. Hiho, to add some variety to the gaming table and depict some smaller shrubs I wrote a tutorial detailing how to go about making shrubs and brushes for both 15mm and 28mm. I went for hazel bushes this time as they have a distinct bark and also allow to decorate the bases with some hazelnuts and squirrels ;). A step-by-step tutorial and plenty of pictures can be found on my blog: Squirrly Goodness – Making Hazel Shrubs for 28mm and 15mm Here is the final result:
  20. A few years ago I did a quick tutorial of painting red hair with Reaper's red hair triad. Since then I have painted quite a few more red heads and hopefully am better at it. The first tutorial http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/46120-tutorial-for-the-red-head-triad/ used mainly just the red hair triad with a few other colors to give it some depth. I wanted to expand upon the first and still focus on the red hair triad. So here are the colors I selected to use for my victims. Here are the three victims freshly primed and waiting to cure a bit before painting. From left t
  21. Hey reaper mini forum! Got another beginner video about basing your miniatures! Please give any feedback regarding the content/video :)
  22. This is a Young Forest Dragon I painted last year. You can find my video tutorial for the painting project here: http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca/2014/11/video-tutorial-painting-green-dragon.html Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  23. This is Jason Wiebe's Dire Bear sculpt. Really like this figure. I've posted a short video tutorial for the painting of this figure here: http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca/2014/11/video-tutorial-painting-reapers-dire.html Kevin in Edmonton http://www.mageknightkevin.blogspot.ca
  24. Hey folks! People have been talking in different threads about Static Grass and Flock, and that they are either afraid to use them, or worried that when they are done, it wont look right. I am no expert, but I have based quite a few figures for Tabletop war-games such as Flames of War. I am one of those people who absolutely HATES to put unfinished figures on the Tabletop. In fact, I don't even bring unfinished figures to games, unless it is something like an escalation league... So here we go! First, What is this Stuff? Static Grass is some kind of fiber that holds static elect
  25. Hi all, I just wrote a short tutorial on my experiences with taking scenic photos of my miniatures. I look at camera choices, lighting, framing, scene composition and photo editing. In a second installment I will move from the general to the specific and provide a step-by-step tutorial for one specific shot. Here is the link. Some of my work:
