  1. One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer. I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress. It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....
  2. Another Ebay find! The base is foamboard, sand, and Vallejo Mud & Grass paint with some Citadel Stirland Battlemire. The model was a ton of fun to paint.
  3. Hey everyone, here comes another set of Mousling. This on is 01512, Mousling Zombie. It was part of Reaper Artist Con 2010 Special Edition Figures sculpted by Gene Van Horne.
  4. One of the first figures I pulled out of the Bones5 core set was this guy. Had fun doing him in non traditional colors. The flash made him look a little brighter than it really is.
  5. Classic old school vampiress sculpt by Sandra Garrity. Rawr! She's a bit petite by current standards, so I built up her base just a bit. But, oh, how that cloak flies! And the ruffles edges on her shroud gown! I did the back in a cooler purple:
  6. The necrosis carnex is an undead creature from 3.5e located in monster manual 4. It’s similar to a flesh golem, being an amalgamation of several corpses with multiple limbs held together with cold iron bands. They also have the ability to unleash negative energy in order to heal undead allies and damage living creatures at the same time. I was also interested in this monster since it can be created by player characters, giving necromancers in an evil campaign new possibilities. The problem was that I’ve searched the internet all over and could not find a good miniature for it, so I decided to create my own instead. I started with some zombie miniatures, particularly miniatures 77342 and 77053. From here I cut up the body parts I needed. Doing this only used three of the 8 miniatures that came in the pack; however I was careful to avoid using pieces that had clothes covering the limbs or torso and tried to create the mini as accurate to the picture in the monster manual as I could. It is said that no two necrosis carnexes look the same so in theory one could make others using the pieces left over, in which case I think I could have made about 3 minis total from the two zombie packs. After this I glued all the limbs onto the torso as best as I could match the original image. I had to cut and re-glue several limbs to get the angles right so the mini would stand properly (I tried heating, shaping, and cooling first but found the limbs went to their original position too easily). I also attached some pieces of wire in order to create the ribcage on the front as well as some of the smaller limbs/attachments. After this I went to work with greenstuff. I filled in the gaps from where limbs were attached and smoothed out the flesh. I also created several strips that I laid over the top of the mini to create the iron bands that hold it together. Last I placed a few tiny rhinestones I had on the largest band to create giant rivets binding the metal to flesh. After this all that was left was to prime and paint the miniature. There are a few things that I would have done differently if I were to build this miniature again. First and foremost I would have cleaned all the flash off of the miniatures before doing any cutting. Trying to remove it from tiny hand and leg pieces was incredibly difficulty so having clean models to start would have saved a lot of time. Second, I would have added the greenstuff in two phases, letting all of the joint filler and body sculpt cure before adding the cold iron bands since this would have prevented the two parts from fusing and left more of a distinct seam between the two.
  7. Another one bites the dust….😆 One of my favorite sculpt…but in the old Bones plastic. I put a little extra into the base, otherwise it was a pretty straight forward zen of Bones quick paint job. Overall I like the scheme and it has given me ideas for when I paint my metal version. Not sure about the green face and the blue glow under the rib cage is too subtle. And as an aside …..the quality of Testors Dullcoat is not nearly as good as it was a decade ago. The newer formulation continues to give me a semi gloss finish. Oh well.
  8. My stash will arrive today! I haven't done a WIP in a very long time , something I intend to remedy. I am extremely excited to get my hands on my contribution to Bones 5, the Whispering Ghoulsbane. Maybe more so than any prior piece I have made. Seeing as how I don't actually have the mini in had at this moment, Id thought I'd fill this space with some history about the concept. I like to watch reviews for feedback on pieces I've made (and learned a lot). A few review waffled on what the thing was, exactly. Part of me revels in this ambiguity -it is what you want it to be. That said it does have a mundane monster origin story.......wait, say, lets make a game of it! Which "old school" monster served as the primary inspiration for the Whispering Ghoulsbane? take a guess. Wait wait wait! it's here, at this very moment! Delivery! let the prepping begin. Step 1: Open the bag. That is all for now.
  9. So, youngest vixen's boyfriend mentioned my hobby when hanging with his friends. They like to play board games etc,. One of his friends asked if I would paint the minis for his Board Game - Dark Souls for him. So...I agreed. He will let me know what he'd like for the bigger monsters. As for the characters and minions, he let me decide ( oh boy, shall I paint a rainbow skeleton?) Anyway, here it goes.
  10. Design Vehicle and Crew: Titanforge Design: Fleeing Vampire in Front : Arch Villain Games Design Hanging Corpse : Printed Obsession Design Church Ruins: Printed Obsession Fleeing Winged Vampire : Reaper Bones Vorvorlake SKU 50329 Graveyard Fence Part : Reaper Tombstones /Barrels/Books/ Weapons: Various. Printed on Elegoo Mars in Resin. Part of my Project Children of the Night. WIP HERE: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79298-children-of-the-night-by-glitterwolf/page/17/ ****************** Vampires roam the land, but fear not, there are those who dedicated their lives to exterminate them. Here we can see how Ernst Holtz and his crew hunt down the evil creatures who were hiding in an abandoned cemetary. Once nobles and commoners alike donated money to the Order of the Vampire Hunters, but since the Baron's son and his wife ruled the Barony the order was mocked. People no longer believed in the supernatural. Ernst suspected the Baron's son and his wife to be behind it but he couldn't prove it yet. When he heard rumours of vampires in the area he assembled his crew and took out the now rusty Dampfhammer. He would show them! He would capture one of those vile creatures and show it to the people, they would believe again! Once more the vile Undead would flee before him! And maybe he could find out why the Baron's son and his wife wanted to get rid of the Order.. *****************
  11. 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 working on these guys. They're very colorful despite being monochromatic and I think they're among some of my best work. I tried out new techniques and pushed my skills. In the end I have a group of evocative minis that really imply a setting beyond the limits of their bases. I couldn't be prouder of these bone-boys. I also recently shared some photos of some of my earlier attempts at painting skeletons. It was really fun looking back at where I started - especially since these models are very similar to the Skeleton Guardians. You can check out my old skeletons in the Show-Off post HERE.
  12. Alright. So I want to share some old skeletons with you to both show off some of my older paintjobs, and to reflect on my growth over the past two and a half years. An what better way to show off my growth in Bones, than with bones? More Below Spoiler: I am not a fan of repainting old models or painting another copy of something I've already painted. I have so many minis in my collection that I'd rather keep moving forward. That said, I love painting similar things. It's a great opportunity to reflect on your past projects and to compare where you started to where you've come. I'd love to see some before and after photos of some of your works!
  13. Hello everyone, here's my second 06132, Skeleton swordsman. This Warlord Necropolis Grunt was sculpted by Kevin Williams. Like the first one I painted, the lightning on its sword is freehand painting. These huge swords are great canvas to elaborate all kinds of effects.
  14. Hello everyone! After painting my 16 Citadel skeletons, I wanted to try something different on this one. Here is my rendition of my first 06132, Skeleton with Two-Handed sword sculpted by Kevin Williams. The lightning on its sword's blade is freehand painting, I used Reaper MSP paint.
  15. Hello everyone, here are some pictures of a 02126, Arachno-Assassin sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. I had this damaged mini for a long time and I decided to replace its upper left hand falchion for a sword from the 02455, Weapons pack IV. It was a very fun and easy model to paint. I intend to use it as a "boss" in a major encounter, so I painted it in red to increase the focus on it and point out how dangerous it is. The bluish bladed sword will be magical, maybe even cursed.
  16. Hello everyone, here's what I painted last week, a Skeleton Horde by Games Workshop / Citadel Miniatures from 1986. I mounted them on 25mm base and converted a few of them. I used remaining parts from other minis and changed some shields, skulls and weapons. I also printed two army trays to be able to move them more easily and change their arrangement on the game table. There's 16 skeletons in total and I intend to use them during future D&D games. More pictures under the spoiler (64 pictures).
  17. I finally managed to climb back on the painting horse. I painted this vampire to my usual tabletop standard. He'll be the leader for a Mordheim/Frostgrave/random skirmish game warband.
  18. I had meant to finish this back at halloween, but stuff happened.
  19. Hello everyone, here's a nightmarish model I completed last night. Dark Heaven Legends 02896, Aserlis the Liche King was sculpted by Werner Klocke. All painted with Reaper MSP paint.
  20. Female Spectre from EPIC Miniatures Printed on Elegoo Mars Elegoo Grey Resin. WIP: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79298-children-of-the-night-by-glitterwolf/ Once she was loved, then betrayed and murdered in cold blood. He got away with it and to keep up appearances he laid flowers on her grave. Thinking he could be happy with his new found love, keeping it a secret for now. In a while he would "meet a new girl" again and nobody would ever suspect the truth. One last time to play the grieving widower, he walked to her grave with some flowers in hand. Some other visitors looked at him, feeling sorrow for his loss. He smiled inside, if only they knew. The others left the cemetary. He laid down the flowers, no need to hang around if nobody was around. Besides he was longing for his new girl, one more look at the tombstone, a shame she wouldn't let him go. He had to free himself from her, too bad it had to end this way. Goodbye! He whispered and turned around. Oh, don't go yet! He heard a whispering voice say. A cold wind blew around his neck, he turned around and saw her ghost emerging from the grave. Two shiny daggers in her hands. You'll stay with me...forever!
  21. Hi there. I've got a boney baddie for you all today. I was disappointed by the official mini offerings for a Skull Lord (a skeletal warrior with 3 heads), and it seemed like the perfect candidate for a bit of conversion. A few citadel skulls later and... For the observant viewer, you'll notice the Skeletal Champion's original head at the bottom of the bone pile. His skull was a bit too bulky compared to the citadel skulls and the sculpt didn't really leave enough room for three heads so I had to cut away some of the shoulder armor. All said, this was a pretty simple conversion and will make for a fun fight in the future. To see more of my winter-themed minis, check out my Frostrun Project HERE.
  22. Hello everyone, I completed this one last night. Dark Heaven Legends 02885, Khalith the Mummy Lord and Cobra familiar. This awesome model was sculpted by James van Schaik.
  23. Hello everyone, I completed another mummy last night. 14280, Chosen of Sokar the Nefsokar Sergeant sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. Another amazing model, full of nice ornaments and sporting a crocodile head. Once again, I used the nnm technique and opted for purple clothes to distinguish it from the other mummies I recently painted.
  24. Hello everyone, I had a busy week and managed to complete this model last night. Here are pictures of 14026, Nakhti the Nefsokar Captain. This Warlord model was sculpted by Bob Ridolfi, I painted it with Reaper MSP paint. I love the detail on this mummy.
  25. Hello everyone, here are pictures of Wizards of the Coast 88358, Skeletal Orc. This Chainmail model was sculpted by Will Hannah in 2001 for the Ahmut faction.
