  1. To change from fantasy, I wanted to do a quick paint of a Chronoscope mini in Bones. According to the store, it is "Frank Buck, Adventurer". I like the sculpt and its likeness to a very famous archaeologist / adventurer in the movies. My goal was a quick & simple paint job and nothing fancy for the base. The problem was that the mini was badly bent at the ankles making it lean forward a lot and no boiling/cooling was able to fix it. So, I still had to re-base it, and got a bit carried away in the re-basing process which yield to this mini vignette: "Heading into the Ju
  2. That frog is finished.. finally...going to take some rest from scene set doing some more simple figure and base before go into my next one ( already have an idea with Reaper bones figure this time :D ) My WIP for this project here : http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/81457-darksword-frog-hunter/
  3. Having a hard time getting started back up on my keeper's sanctum diorama... I think I need to purposely take a break from it and work on some other stuff to get my creative juices flowing again. I have this idea in my head for a 75mm diorama featuring black sun miniatures' "Barbarian and the Lost Princess" (Conan) vs SC75's "Brock the Wanderer" I'm thinking in this piece that it will have Conan carrying the princess through a dungeon type setting and then Brock standing there in front of a doorway. I'm going to really pull from artwork that I admire in regards to barbarians such
  4. ...and finishing it in 10 days or less. And you're all invited to come along for the ride. Audience participation is welcome and encouraged, just don't throw anything, please. (Unless it's money) While on the hangouts last night, I had an idea for a new project, and then started to laugh. When asked what was so funny, I said that I had just thought of a cool idea for a vignette for Reapercon, but it was too bad it's only a little over a week away. Some of the helpful folks there encouraged me to 'go for it'. I laughed. But I started thinking about it.
  5. Magically Distracted She sat on her favorite stool, having gotten mostly undressed and relaxed, gently swirling the goblet of red wine in her hand as she read through the grimore in her lap... closing her eyes she gently concentrated on the spell that was before her... suddenly the books piled around her lifted up in the air as if they had minds of their own and were caught in a small windstorm. She giggled to herself and took another long drink of the wine from her goblet and continued to study... --------------------- This was a really fun project that I s
  6. Okay, this is a WIP of the making of the vignette, not the entire paint process. This is my first post here, so bear with me if I have to modify stuff. If the descriptions come out by the right photos the first time, I'll be pleasantly surprised :-) The post is going to be photo heavy, so I reduced the size of all of them. Hopefully it won't be too bloated. #1 The 99% mostly finished unicorn. -- EDIT -- grabbed the wrong photo, this one also lacks the mane & tail highlighting. If I add the corrected photo it will screw up the order. Whoops :-) #2 I "built" this tree using th
  7. A little while ago I purchased Hasslefree's "Fairies Wear Boots" piece. The Gothic Punk like Fairy stomps on candy. Now I kept thinking that it would be fun to have her chasing little Imps and stomp those into the ground. So I got me some little familairs and stuff from Reaper. Then Malefacus ( Al) send me a wonderful Mushroom he sculpted. To top things off, Knarthex ( George) send me some stuff including a nice oval wooden plinth. Thinking about it all, I realised I now have the ingredients to start on this piece. The Idea
  8. I have painted up the Nativity Set as a gift for my girlfriend's parents. They will get it close to the holidays. I added the sheperd with sheep, the donkey and a cow. All Reaper miniatures: https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/nativity/latest/01430 https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/nativity/latest/01433 https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/nativity/latest/01439 https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/cow/sku-down/03719 I put the whole set under a dome. And made some barn soil with putty. WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69198-
  9. I started this as a Halloween project. Things got in the way and now it is an autumn piece. Any way I had fun. I bought a ceramic Pumpkin, converted it into a house. Reaper's Elise Witch http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/elise/latest/02869And Freebooter's Chaos Witch both sculpted by Werner Klocke are conjuring pumpkins. These are now wandering off into the world to cause mayhem, The pumpkins are part Ristul's Market and I used the Owl on a Pumpkin from the Reaper Halloween Familiars http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Special%20Edition%20Fi
  10. I'll call this one done as well, though I may touch up a few areas. I love this sculpt. It's so full of life and happiness. I just had to rain on the parade... I added some faint OSL from the spirit on the surroundings. At the last minute I decided to go ahead and use the flower. My WIP is here. Enjoy! C&C always welcome! See y'all at Reapercon!!!
  11. Hey everyone, Here are some more photo's from the WIP The only thing missing is a wooden round sockel I ordered, but that will take another week at least before it will be back in stock and then shipped. She was a valentine gift for my girlfriend and she really loves her. Hope you all do too! Linked for nudity and made new photos http://myalbum.com/photo/opvqdNChQn9X/1k0.jpg http://myalbum.com/photo/xzR4iBRwKGHV/1k0.jpg http://myalbum.com/photo/rmSFJTGPv126/1k0.jpg http://myalbum.com/photo/b3kVyjHfabHC/1k0.jpg http://myalbum.com/photo/fupjpk9bHxoH/1k0.jpg Any C&C is
  12. Hey everyone, This is a work in progress for a finished piece. I finished her yesterday but couldn't post the work in progress, because it was a valentine gift for my girlfriend and she sometimes roams the forums too. She picked this model a while back when I was ordering and told me right from the start she wanted something golden green. I painted the dryad gold green and was my first real blending on a miniature that small. It turned out pretty well although my shaking hands still bother my painting skills at times. I mixed the green gold with VMC golden olive, VGC yellow olive, VGC glor
  13. Hi everyone, My painting isn't going so well unfortunately, because of shaking hands from the side effects from my new anti-epilepsy meds. So i spend the past week building a base for my Clay Golem and just finished it. Built out of blue foam, some milliput and creativity Hope you all like it! Any C&C is, as always, much appreciated!!
  14. For the Secret Sophie Exchange, my partner this year was Corporea. She asked for something fun and colorful (specifically blue, purple, and green). So it took me a while to come up with this idea, but one night in bed while I was mulling it over, the idea struck me that I'd use the surfer dude I had and the coral mermaid I had on hand. With him on a beach and her on a sandbar, a modern meets fantasy type of scene. I purposely left the figures shiny as they were (or are) in the water. Used iridescent medium on the mermaid's scales to give them a glittering/shimmering look. All the marine li
  15. I started building a display piece, a vignette, diorama or whatever you want to call it. It will probably be too late for Halloween but then it will be a Fall / Autumn piece. Reaper 02869: Elise, The Witch and Freebooter Chaos Witch,, both by Werner Klocke will star the show. The idea is they live in this Pumpkin house ( obtained in a garden centre, added a plastic door from a board game) and they are conjuring spooky pumpkins. The Halloween tree stands next to their house. So here are the first pics.
  16. I came back from a dark place in April with the help of my family, and one of the things that kept me going then, and now, is sitting down with little lead people and some paint every evening.... Now I didn't start on the forums until the last day of June, but in April, May, and June, I painted over 50 minis, mostly Reaper. (That bit of Figmentius in me kept me from needing to buy much....) The Reaper ones are In the Inspiration Gallery, because I knew about that.... The pics will be marked Old Work in the titles, and were done with GW paints, because that was what was here, as well as a f
  17. So the mailman just brought this AWESOME piece to my door. This is the summer exchange that Ub3r_N3rd did for me. I think it's absolutely incredible; if you're involved with the 'Randomness' threads at all, there's a lot of Easter eggs in this piece for you to find. Ub3r did a really great job with this, I'm kind of at a loss for words to describe my happiness. Anyway, enough of my gushing, here's the pics: Ub3r_N3rd will be along shortly to add some more pics or link to the ones he took during the building/painting process, check back, I
  18. PROJECT...Fantasy vignette...titled (You Can't Get Me Gold)! This is a small fantasy vignette (6" x 6")...scratch built for another site and is my interpretation of the given title (Giant Flora & Fungi) containing a monster plant! Any and all comments and feedback will be greatly appreciated! Paul (Catdancer)
  19. Hello all! To you I present this fine sculpt by Tre Manor, going by name of Dilean Softstep but used as a base for ub3r_n3rd's elf character. Mod job to make it similar to ub3r's description included cutting out the blades and crafting plasticard "kukris" curved blades; sculpting an eye-patch and horsetail. Paintjob is an attempt at the brushes by yours truly, trying to keep to the topic of a nature rogue... on a roof. Since the mini was intended for play, I designed a small diorama-vignette where the actual 25mm square base could be placed, with the intention of making it non-obvi
  20. I'm still slogging through my painting slump However I did manage to finish the last of my Hasslefree Juveniles. These are small figures with the largest standing at 20mm and the smaller at 18mm. The lines of the sculpts are clean and the details crisp making them easy to paint even at the smaller scale. I carved the concrete blocks and the brick wall from Sculpey. I chose to use the green to unify them as a group. Also I wanted a "gritty" environment for them so I carved out a gully in the plinth in order to add debris. Thank you for looking.
  21. To stay within the new Forum rules/guidelines for WIP threads, I'm starting this one up for a vignette I'm working on as part of a RBG contest sponsored by Tre Manor on another forum. These are made from "troll cast" which is a resin-like material as far as I understand it, both detailed extremely well, but the material is very very brittle. I've broken 2 ankles so far, so I'm being extremely careful with them. Anyhow, here we go with the Unarmored Hordesman and the Armored Hordesman! At this point, I decided I wanted the Unarmored to have African American skin
  22. 30002 54mm Belladonna Sculpted by James Van Schaik Normally I do not do W.I.P.'s as my life is so hectic and keeping up with one is a bit of a strain for me. However this is my first attempt at a 54mm and I would like some help from my fellow painters. The only thing I'm trying to accomplish with her is nice, tidy brushwork, highlights in all the right places, depth of colour and separation between areas. Nothing fancy. She also has a large base and backdrop. I'm working on that now. Your input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for looking.
  23. For the last couple of months I've been painting more seriously and using subdued palettes. Which is all good and well as I feel I am growing as a painter. But every now and again I think it's a good idea to paint just for the joy of it. I did use a limited palette, unfortunately I limited that palette to a bright glowy green. So in that spirit I painted up this 18mm bot from Counterblast sculpted by Patrick Keith and a flying saucer from Hydra sculpted by Steve Meli. Hope this gave you all a bit of a laugh as life is far too serious and we're all gonna die someday. T
  24. I was asked to do up some minis for a wedding gift. That is to say, someone else will be giving them as a gift at a wedding. I suppose technically this is my first paid commission. The minis are the soon-to-be-wed couples' D&D characters. They've never had proper minis for their game before, and aren't expecting these. There were a couple of requests. Firstly, the gift-giver did not like Lysette's sword. This was replaced by a spell effect, which felt a little rushed, but does the job and inspired one of the vignette ideas. Also, the barbarian, though illiterate, keeps a journal, hoping
  25. The Old Dwarf rubbed his back as he trudged deeper into the dark wood. He had not ventured this deep since he was but a lad, but game had been scarce, and winter was coming. His loyal companion Topaz yelped and started off deeper into the wood. What would they find? Hope you all like this little vignette I've been working on since uh, February I think? I had finished the dwarf and most of the diorama base then, but I was waiting on a suitable hunting dog and I was searching for a good solution for a big tree to put on the mound of earth. I settled on the dog from the companions of the
