  1. Well, I finished my first Bones 2 mini. He's pretty cool, and fun to paint, but not a particularly tidy paintjob which I think is largely due to inactivity on my part (plus some sub-par lighting, but it's a poor workman who blames his tools). Got to get a lot more practice in for the ReaperCon open! I'd really like to see more variants of undead gunslingers, too. A whole gang of these guys could be a lot of fun for a "Weird West" skirmish game!
  2. "And it's so easy when you're evil This is the life, you see The Devil tips his hat to me I do it all because I'm evil And I do it all for free Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need." -Voltaire (the modern mucian, not the 17th Century writer) "When You're Evil." So there was something about Gauntfield that really attracted me. It wasn't just that he looked evil, but that he looked so damn happy about it. There was something very joyful about the sculpt - that and the lines of action on it really made me want to paint it. So I did. In particular I wanted to do him up in very "autumn" colors - a lot of varying browns, a lot of red, and a bit of orange. I took a number of pictures from a few different angles: Incidentally, the spots on the underside of his hat in picture 2 was a bit of the metallic that got there. I covered it after the pictures, but it wasn't worth taking a new one, I think. Questions, comments, and criticisms welcome!
  3. So, remember this? I was going to throw up a bunch of monster pictures. I kind of got derailed a bit by real life, but since I've recently painted some undead, I thought I'd show another branch of the Evil Army. :) I think I'll post a mini and a link until I've got the current lot, then do a group shot. First, some real old ones. Here's a mini I painted way back when in the 90s. Not a terrible job, I think, this is the "Ghoul Warrior." Now lets link one of the first ones I've done in my recent come back to the hobby, the Ghost King. Oh, look, it doesn't have a product # tag. I'll add that. ;) More to come!
  4. Just a couple of creepy minis I've been working on between other things (Rope guy was painted up a couple of months ago, Wire guy last week). Didn't put too much time or effort into either of them, but I think they turned out really good. Comments and criticisms are, as always, most appreciated.
  5. This is one of my favorite sculpts - I bought one of these back in the 90s and painted him then (if you like, I'll post that one later for comparison,) year before last I added this guy to my order to pad it out for free shipping. In the process of painting him - specifically deciding what to do with that blank shield, I came up with a little bit of folklore for this being, I hope you don't mind a brief story: "Bertrand bore the white cross of a crusader and the red cross of a Templar - but he was a man given to indulging in his baser cravings. Sadly, the chaos of the Third Crusade allowed him free reign to indulge himself. Though outwardly he was a pious man, whatever he wanted - whether it be a woman, gold, or a life, he took and used the Cross to justify his desires. So it was when Jaffa fell to the Saracens in 1192, he was ambushed and killed by a number of Saladin's warriors - he was so wrapped up in his vices that he had no time to prepare when the enemy came. Now he stalks the night and annoints his white shield with the blood of those who use the church to terrorize, abuse, and kill others. As the blood dries, it cracks off his shield, leaving the white behind. It is said that if his shield is ever fully white again, the demons will drag his soul to hell. As yet he has never lacked for victims to claim." Sorry about the focus on this one Here's a side view, showing off the skulls Bonus points for anyone who can spot something subtle and supremely ironic... :)
  6. Well You might think I saw this before?? My account got accidently banned, All my topics, likes, posts...gone. Fortunately the good people from Reaper made me raise from the dead. They gave me a nice voucher to buy more minis with too. So I will have to post all my work again, which I will. Hope I don't overflow you with it. Here is my latest work: Grenadier Zombie Horseman. Part of my Swamp based Undead. ( Evil vampire Queen conquered a swamp, so her army consists of Undead, Trolls, Fishmen, Lizardmen etc. Also she has to deal with an uprising from the lizards and serpents)
  7. And here is the Cyclops belonging to the same Swamp Based Undead Army. I will not post all minis at once. Since I got accidently banned I'll have to repost all I painted.. Oh well.
  8. These are a couple of miniatures that I meant to finish quickly but wound up spending a bit more time on. Orc Berserker. Most just quickshading but some extra attention paid to the skin. Quite happy with the result and will try to do the same with the the other bones orcs. Grave Wraith. Not much more than black + dry brush. I tried to do some OSL but I failed. It just wasn't to be this time. Labella Dermonay, Banshee. I really like this figure and I tried the "prime white and add lots of washes" technique I read about on these forums. I'm really happy with the result. Night Spectre. Same "trick" as Labella, except with green instead of blue. Didn't work out as well but in the end it resulted in a finished mini.
  9. This is used as a spirit host in my warhammer army, or as a filler for the skeleton unit when not. Everything on this base, except the zombie, is from reaper, but I can only find the tombstone using the figure finder. There are quite a few reaper minis in my block of 50 skeletons:
  10. This fellow will get a new weapon from somewhere most likely, but the model itself is really great. :) Wight hero for Warhammer.
  11. The latest off the Bones piles are, well, animated bones! First of the Undead Horde we have the Shambling Dead.
  12. I'm procrastinating from the bigger minis to paint these two mascots from the Kickstarters. They are fun.
  13. This guy was originally made for the Year of the Giants competition, but I didn't get him finished in time. I think he's Ral Partha, but I'm not certain. Picked him up a couple years ago; no blister or markings anymore. Any confirmation would be appreciated. Hope you like him.
  14. I was on a roll so I managed to finish another one. Nothing fancy, brown/grey + quickshade for the hull and some more attention directed to the eye and teeth. Easy paintjob with a pleasing result :) And the Beholder Lich as a bonus (I finished this two weeks ago)!
  15. Here's my Kaladrax. I wanted her to be a blue dragon with a fondness for cold mountain tops. Fill in you're own story for the treasure chest and giant skulls.
  16. I decided to participate in "The Ghoul, The Bad, and The Ugly -- Reaper BONES Horror Pageant Challenge" at the end of October. Spent about a week cleaning him up and he was a joy to paint. There are a few more things I wanted to do---but deadlines and no paint time Base was from Secret Weapon's Bag 'O Crap. I added a plaster bottle in the gutter with label and used Secret Weapon water in the gutter as well. The colors are outlined in my WIP. C&C Welcome. If you are interested this is where I started working on him in my WIP: http://www.coolminiornot.com/forums/showthread.php?50056-KruleBear-s-WIP-WIP&p=753810&viewfull=1#post753810 http://www.coolminiornot.com/369428
  17. As I mentioned elsewhere, I've been going through some of my oldest Reaper Miniatures and finally (finally!) getting them painted. I'm pretty happy with the results (I consider my target level as "Tabletop+"), but I wouldn't mind some feedback on where I could improve. I used the old Reaper Dark Heaven rulebook for guidance on the character, and Montrig the Bloody is described as covering himself in the blood of his foes, and having an especially gore-encrusted pick. I tried to make it look like older dried blood haphazardly applied to his front, but left the back sides "clean". I'm actually surprised at how nicely the pick turned out! As a side note, when I looked up the figure in the Reaper Store it was shown with a mace. I'm not sure if the figure was changed at some point, but I seem to have the "original" version.
  18. Wasn't sure if I wanted to post this one, I was testing out a color selection and custom base. Then I decided that getting additional input to help improve the next mummy. So base was custom base attempt to paint black marble tiles. Nothing special about the tile support other than an attempt to paint rust effect. Thanks for view and any C&C you feel inspired to give.
  19. To simplify things for me I decided start a separated thread for testing out possible mummy paint colors for my Giant Mummy Diorama. Ordered a pack with my last reaper order but thought I start with the one from my KS1. Mixed some Brown Liner with RMS Matt Sealer to make a wash to bring out the details. Glued down some sand to the base to test out Foundry's Sand color triad as well.
  20. Only angle I can show within forum's nudity restrictions. More pictures of her and her cohorts on my blog: http://minisbyfinch.blogspot.com/2014/10/under-sea_31.html#comment-form. Part of the recently concluded Zomtober '14.
  21. I was looking for examples of this figure painted. Found none. First?
  22. I had one of these guys already fully painted, but I was waiting until I had a unit to post in Show Off. What we have here is an Army Painter bone colour spray primer, blocked in colour for clothing, armour and weapons, a quickshade ink wash, a drybrush all over with Reaper Polished Bone, ink washes to bring the colours back up, reapplication of metallics and finally painting the eyes blue and basing. Pretty easy and fast, so I'm confident that I'll be able to crank a bunch of these out and have a couple of hordes in no time - once this spring weather decides to stay fine for more than three minutes so I can go outside and do some priming.
  23. After being quite happy with how my skeletons turned out, I thought I'd have a go at some 'test zombies" for my planned zombie horde. Again, liberal use of quickshade inks was the order of the day. I'm particularly happy with the gory bits, which were just MSP Blushing Rose covered in red tone and strong tone quickshade.
  24. Here is a shot of a figure I stumbled across in one of my mini-boxes. Not sure who made it or what the mini is aside from a big mummy. I put a bones mummy beside it for comparison. Thinking It's about time I tried a large figure. So I think after I finish Khael (aka Gandwarf), I'll give him the full treatment with a scenic base. Think my skill are finally up to the task.
  25. So I was reading the thread about the lost gems in the Reaper catalog and thought about one of my first Reaper minis and still a favorite---Reaper War. I did a search on the forumn and couldn't find a painted example, so thought I'd finally quit pestering everyone and actually post a mini to show off. I painted this in the mid '90s I would guess. About all I did at that time was simple dry brushing and controlled washes. I could tweak him, but I like his current state for sentimental reasons. May buy another to paint if I ever get caught up on the mountain of lead. Anyways, hope you enjoy this throw back mini. Edit: forgot that the sculpt was by Richard Kerr
