  1. Got the itch to do some pirates! And lo'! The Vampire package came with four, so let's paint four of 'em, shall we? Nothing really special. Bones figures, primed grey, then a couple different skin tones. Girls are light, shirtless guy will be tanned, and the dwarf in betweens. Painting one on video (link at the end) but the other three are for my own enjoyment. I do paint slower than molasses, but maybe I can work on my viscosity.
  2. A cloaked zombie by Studio 2 Publishing. Taking pics when a mini is nearing completion helps in spotting problems that might otherwise be missed. In this case I've redone the right eye and touched up the one hand since these were taken.
  3. Hello everybody. While I am waiting (and waiting... and waiting) for my minis for the Here be Dragons! Diorama, I started working on my Infinity minis. Now, the idea is to get back into gaming, and also to pull back into the hobby my wife, my brother and my best friend. I started working on the minis, but then got caught up with making a nice looking table. I got inspired by the internet, but a lot by Dadcube's recent thread (here!). Scratchbuilding terrain (and stuff, in general) has always been a passion for me. I cannot match the great paintjobs out there, but I can build nice look
  4. Since seeing the Bones Elementals as an add-on option, I have been plotting and planning my very own magma elemental! Whooo!!! Also since I got 2 sets, I'll probably do a traditional earth elemental to satisfy our Druid's tendency to hang around in wild shape... unless I can talk the DM into allowing a magma elemental... inspiration: Anyway- prepped figure by washing with soap and water and trimming mold lines. used sanding needles for hard to reach areas. Put on a basecoat of walnut brown (see- don't you just love walnut brown!?) and started in on some simple shading with blood red
  5. I've had a wonderfully productive basing/painting weekend. Tonight I got a start on my DHL Classics skellies, which will be used in an upcoming D&D adventure. I'd wanted to wait for more tips from Buglip's dry/wetbrushing how-to thread, but ultimately, I was just too excited to get started, and I think I know all that I need in order to get a start on my own. Drybrushing generally freaks me out. It's messy, and often used for putting finishing highlights on a mini. With my heavy hand, I'm likely to get paint all over the place using this technique for highlights, and so I've refrai
  6. So I am working on the items i got for Christmas starting with Burbon Street Sophie Right now I am debating the color for the wings Flesh color or something else.
  7. Finally got some time to work on painting today. Since I have gotten a bit stuck on the other minis I started these.
  8. So, in anticipation of my Kickstarter Bonenami arriving SoonTM, I decided to start my own WIP thread, even though I currently only have one Bones mini to my name. I decided to get a bugbear as my practice mini, (my tiny FLGS only had about 5 Bones to choose from :/ ), just to see what I was in for and familiarize myself with filing, boiling, painting and stripping paint, etc. These first three pics are of him straight out of the package. Needs boiling, obviously: He also looks like he was the victim of a botched beheading: Lastly, the straps that are supposed to be holding
  9. Kala gaps.. joint plugs probably need some trimming. two legs dont actually sit on the base..
  10. So for the Dragon challenge I decided to tackle this dragon we bought back when Grenadier was still in business. Just a little over a month to go still, I think I am cutting it close.... Here is a picture of the box, I really like that paint job, so I am going to try to emulate it. And here are all the pieces: Two weeks ago, trimming flash and getting the pins ready. Husband is handling the pinning for me. Here's is a not so flattering pic of what we glued that weekend (turkey dragon):
  11. Hello everybody! I am working hard on a diorama to, if I get it done in time, submit to the Here be Dragons! competition. I have a lot of pics from the start, but I hit a problem tonight and wanted to ask the forum for opinions and advice. The diorama will tell a story. To test the idea, I won't tell you what, and if you can guess it then the story is well shown to the public :) Some pics: That was "version 1" of my idea. Of course, cleaning of minis (removing bases) and sculpting needed to be done (I cleaned the minis already, sculpting flames is next). I was
  12. Hey, folks! Those of you who attended Reapercon in 2013 may recognize this miniature, which was sold there, but has not yet been released for general purchase. It was sculpted by my good friend, Andy Pieper, who very kindly sent me one of them to paint. I have a WIP going in my blog, but these boards will give it more visibility. It is a truly beautiful figure that I want to share. You can read more about how Andy sculpted Coraline Thadington, Victorian Lady on his website. I wanted the base to fit the Victorian era of the mini, so I thought a formal garden path would work.
  13. Hey there everyone, I guess I will share some of my WIPs as well. Finished pieces can be found here: http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/52249-oobackes-speed-painting-corner/ Thanks for viewing!
  14. Hello! I'm Ravenscroft! I've been sitting on these Bones minis for quite a while now and finally got a round toit, so I gotta paint 'em, right? It's kinda relaxing, being able to focus and see as colour fills gaps... Even if apparently I need to go back to kindergarden since I can't paint in the lines sometimes. Either way! WIP! My first mini painting attempt! I've watched a lot of tutorials and read a bunch of stuff on how I should set up my workstation and whatnot. I use a wet palette made from a blister pack, water, a kitchen sponge, and parchment paper on top. I have gater clip
  15. Hello again everyone who comes to this lovely little forum to show off and take a look at some of the nicest miniatures around. Today I bring to you not a Reaper mini (didn't have one that fit my character so had to look else where), but one I found for a game called Hell Dorado. So far I've finished only the base coat and a little bit of the highlighting on his body. I'm looking at whitening up his clothes a bit more and then I need to work on his eyes and all of the touchups. So without further adieu, here is my latest mini: When I finish him up tomorrow I'll be sure
  16. So after I got my really groovy pin vise from those fine folks at Hobby Lobby, I've been itching to actually pin something with it. I have tons of different stuff I could choose from but finally came upon this Ral Partha Gold Dragon from their Council of Wyrms. As I started working on it, I started photographing it, so figured I'd do a WIP out of, which I hadn't done since I'd painted up some Drow Elves a while back ago. Hopefully it's not too tedious to watch, and I've got oodles of pictures of the dragon in various states of pinning, so if you get bored, I apologize. I think I'm using this
  17. I've never tried NMM before and after finishing the Ogre chieftain I wanted to give it a go. I had a box of GW's Chaos Warriors lying around so that seemed like a perfect start as that gave me a batch of near identical armoured figures to begin on. First attempt it below. The figure in metallic, which I'm using as a comparison point, has just had it's base coat and wash so far so at the moment it's much darker than it's going to be. This first one was just a quick test. I still need to go over with some black ink lining to help define some areas but otherwise I'm relatively happy except for th
  18. First painting: Cut rats from sprue, washed figures to get mold release off, dried, glued to bases, and primed with Army Painter Uniform Grey: 2013-07-15 - Primed Figures - Rats and Skeletons - 0001.jpg Added basing material and washed it with black wash, painted a dark base coat of walnut brown to the shield and spear, and muddy brown to the skeleton to provide pre-shading. I plan to follow up with lightly brushed mid-tones, and a quick dry brush to highlight. Each example of skeleton and rat will be done differently to get ideas of what approach I like. 2013-07-15 - Skeletal Spearm
  19. I'm new to minis, thanks to my son who introduced me. I'm hoping for suggestions of what to do and where to go (politely). I'll post more WIPs later, but here's one that has me stuck. I've tried to make the altar look like granite and I'm fairly happy with this. It needs to be aged a bit, maybe with a wash, but I'm not really sure where to go. I was thinking of having the skulls on top just plain yellowed bone but it seems rather unimpressive, even were they shaded. Suggestions?
  20. Hello forum folks I have not been painting anything the last half year or so, as my left elbow and lower arm have not been working properly, ligament problems leaving me unable to hold anything small still for any length of time, or at all. But it is getting better, and I have been getting a lot of prepwork done on of alot of the masses and masses of minis that have arrived, fulfilling the last years kickstarters. The Kings of War and Reaper Bones has been delivered and are now complete, and the third and last Dreadball shipment is probably in the mail, leaving me with more minis than spa
  21. I'm still fairly new to this hobby, and I've decided that my impatience is harming my paint-jobs. I've therefore decided to jump on board Inarah's challenge and paint Lysette. I'm hoping people here can help analyse my process and identify why, precisely, I suck :) Just some shadow coats for now: Vallejo Yellow Olive, Auburn Shadow, Fair Shadow and Flesh Wash: The eyes aren't quite working for me at the moment. Any suggestions?
  22. I finally got myself motivated to start painting again at home. And as my wife got a new camera I figured if I started a home WIP, I might even get around to building the light box I've been planning for a couple of months and start taking pictures with it. (Note: that hasn't happened yet, so expect my usual mediocre phone pictures.) To get myself going I went down and dug through an Army Transport of Chainmail figs to find something interesting. Picked out a Pulveriser first, but then he fell apart (good ol' 13 year old glue job) so it's now on the bench to get pinned. So I grabbed th
  23. Started working on Almaran the Gold this weekend for my son. I decided to play with some new techniques and try and refine some others. I started by covering in black gesso and then cutting of his shield arm so I could work on it seperately. I airbrushed him with gray and then drybrushed with Citadel Necro compound (dry silver). I really like the way this worked for the plate and will repeat this on the next full plate I work on. For the shield, I blended some browns for the wings and have it mostly done. Still need to do the weapon on the shield and the edge. For the body, I d
  24. Hey again, I figured I would stop by and show my progress on my next project. Like the topic name suggests I am answering the question of "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?" the answer being obviously: Reaper 50217: The Black Mist (*Cough The Shadow cough cough*) Now this is only my second miniature and I'm not finished with him yet (lots of touch ups that I need to finish up), but here is my progress with him so far: Biggest issue I had so far would have to be the eyes...between the scarf and the hat it was a pain to paint the eyes. Don't mind the strange text
  25. I'm trying to stay motivated and get some projects finished up before my vacation is over, so I figured why not start a WIP. First up is the Ghost King. He reminded me a lot of Shredder so that's what I'm going for at the moment. Next up is the well. I've been fairly uninspired by this one. More than likely I will just hit it with some drybrush and pick out some of the other details. This is an eventual christmas gift for my Mother in law. I've just about finished blocking in the colors and drybrushing the fur. I have an oblong 3x4 base that I'm going to affix them to once
