  1. After two months of work, he is done! I give you ... Narthrax the White. If that's not enough for you, there are a hundred and forty eight more pictures in the WIP thread, documenting his development in excruciating detail. On a side note, as I made the final adjustments and took the photos, I finished watching the climactic episode of Critical Role. And it was awesome.
  2. This figure is the Reaper 3718 Ghostbride in metal. I wanted to do some white practice on her, and she is probably my most artsy figure, considering she has a purple base and not some mundane colored ground. I tried to have her be very white, with the white being on top of different base colors, but at the same time have the purple come up from the base. Mostly happy with her. I had planned on having her hair be blond, but the dark hair just popped so nicely against the pale skin. As a bonus, she did see some game time in our last session as the ghost of a young woman kille
  3. Any tips on how to do either/both of these? I'm getting ready to do my mock up for Ma'al and I'm not really sure how to approach it. I've done black before so I have a little bit of an idea of how to go about it but for white I've no idea. I'm tempted to buy like all the greys/blacks/whites that reaper has and go at it that way but I'm thinking it might be more cost effective to buy the Scale 75 black and white paint set. Maybe. So tips, tricks, paint recommendations? All of the above?
  4. Hi All! I've just been rearranging my display shelves & have noticed that I actually have a few minis that I have never shown on these boards. They are the first ones that I painted a few years ago when I returned to the hobby after many, many years. I will show the others soon but to begin with, here's GW's Gandalf The White & Shadowfax. The actual paint job is essentialy me getting back in the swing of things by copying the image on the miniatures' packaging, I made the base terrain(s) using air drying clay, gravel & sand & added some grass clumps to f
  5. I finally finished Jannus! For those who want it, my WIP is here. I decided to take the very first miniature I ever painted back in 1996 and paint a new version of him with using some of the things I've learned over time, even though I took about a 6 year hiatus from painting in the last 20 years. My goal is to show that yes, practice does improve skill. Also that if you keep painting, you can accomplish some fun and exciting things! This will be a present for our DM for years of herding us gamer-cats despite our varied schedules! This was one of reaper's earlier miniatur
  6. Right. This project has been ticking in the back of my mind for awhile. The story starts about 20 years ago, when I painted my very first miniature for our D&D game, our NPC cleric from the Temple of Elemental Evil module. I love that module, and I loved our cleric more, since he managed to save/raise our butts more times than I can count. Jannus came from farmer stock, and took a tough love approach to healing, all stemming back to the dreaded 1 rolled on a healing check, subsequently involving salt in a wound. Good times. It became a standing joke for years to come. I love the
  7. Hi everyone. This is my version of Danar. Sculpted by Dennis Mize. I originally modified this figure to match my character in Flamehawke's PBP. It was a desert ranger specializing in sword and spiked shield two-weapon style. I chopped off its arm and spliced on one of the goblin's arms from Bones 6 pack of goblins 77030 I wanted light colors which would do well in a desert. I was pleased with both the white and yellow. The region in Pathfinder he comes from has a flag which is white, yellow and red. So, I painted the Celtic knot red to break up the all white cloak, and put r
  8. Okay so my attempt at coming back a little while ago kind of fell flat on its face, and my attempts to return to painting have gone terribly. However, I visited Drifter the other day and we stopped off in London on the way to his, and we dropped into a shop which carried Reaper Bones I was so pleased I bought a new dragon and a unicorn. Hadn't been intending to buy minis at all, just to browse, but nevermind. I decided to paint the dragon today, and he's the Fire Dragon... However, I decided to try and paint him up as a white dragon, coz he's little, and for some reason I just didn
  9. 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
  10. I am in a bit of a pickle. I've searched around and tried looking at a few threads but I'd like to post my mini and get some concrete advice on how to proceed. I've thought about just spraying it white again, and keep it with the ghostly green all over, but I'd kind of like some additional detail, and thought the dress was great as blue,. It's the rest that don't want to work. Especially the hair and white threads: Any opinion is valid here. I just mainly need advice on what might work in regards to colour combinations. And maybe some advice on how to shade the white parts proper
  11. Hello my fellow meatbags! I’ve heard complaints of working with yellows and reds as being the most difficult paints. But for me it’s always been painting white. After a quick rummage through the forums I couldn't find anything specifically dedicated to this topic: Working with white paint, how to highlight and shade and getting a good range of values. So I have been working on a project and it has been driving me crazy. I've stripped and repainted it several times already but never to my satisfaction. I would very like much to paint the miniature if a lovely white dress, but I c
  12. Hi All, When i do a wash, a drybrush or deluted white paint, (I tried a few different brands, Tamiya, Vallejo(all ranges) and Citadel) I find my whites to leave a somewhat grainy texture.. When airbrushing I find my tamiya to be the one who gives me the best and cleanest result, but I am still not truly happy with it. I use low pressure, a fresh clean gun and apply many thin layers to get the best results, but still not to my desired satisfaction. I know most white paints have less or larger piqments in them then lets say a red paint, but was wondering if there is a paint that has less of
  13. I always wanted to paint a white dragon. Now I have. He glows eerily on my shelf.
  14. Hi, I'm planning on painting one of my Bones II dragons as a white dragon. I'm thinking of using Factory White and some Snow Shadow for the underbelly and wing webbings. Anyone have any tips for painting white. I guess my big questions are, Should I undercoat the white? What color should i use as a wash? Should I wash it? Any tips would be much appreciated.
  15. This is Reaper's other frost giant, the one who isn't in Bones. My husband was running a giant-intensive campaign and I thought he would be fun. I painted him in a raking northern light, with pale ivory light on one side and deep blue shadows on the other, with an attempt to show the reflectiveness of sky and snow. His clothing is patched and impromptu, his weaponry a little battered. I painted the metals with metallic paint but also painted reflections and shadows on them. There's a WIP thread here. Some of the pictures are taken from a low angle because it seemed right for a
  16. This is Otherworld's frost giant, a companion piece to the somewhat larger Reaper's Frorigh: Frost Giant. I painted a whole batch of frost giants, WIP here. As with Frorigh, I was trying for a raking, low arctic light effect. The lights are pale yellow, the shadows deep blue and violet. The figure has some fun details. He had a number of ovoid knobs on his tunic which I decided to paint up like red gemstones, garnets or rubies. The shadows are all painted on. I used metallic paints on the metals but also added lights, reflections, and colors.
  17. What kind of head is that on the staff anyhow? Lioness?
  18. Ok so I've started on one of the bigger dragons amongst all the smaller stuff that I've been working on as well (like skeletons mostly) and figured I might as well put up an Open WIP thread for him. At this stage I've assembled and removed the mould lines I saw with a mix of hobby knife and file. I noticed a couple of extras when I was putting the base coat on, but none of those are problematic enough for me to go back in with knife and file again to remove. I then glued him to a bit of cork. I then glued the cork to a 50mm square base (resin blank in this case, but plastic would d
  19. I'm painting up 77026: Young Fire Dragon as a white dragon for an upcoming D&D game, and I was feeling a little frustrated and wasn't making very much progress, so I thought I'd take a few pictures and toss them up here. I still plan to give special attention to his eyes, mouth, and base. I am considering doing the little wing spikes and tail spikes as boney protrusions in a warmer white, shaded to a pale warm brown? I would especially like opinions on the wings: is the shading reasonable? Are the transitions smooth enough? Also, is there enough contrast on the body? His little ch
