  1. Here is the Grenadier Monsters box set wraith. The glowing green inside his hood and sleeves doesn't show up as brightly in the photos as it is IRL.
  2. My Bones III Kickstarter fulfillment arrived a couple of days ago, and I've been happily sorting through them. I've engaged in all three Reaper kickstarters so far, but I doubt that I'll do another — it's not that they're not a good deal, but there's always a very, very long wait for them to arrive, and they've all been very heavy on the character figures, of which I really do have an ample supply. I mainly want the monsters, and it'll be simpler just to buy them individually when they eventually appear in the shop. I chose this one to start the painting with, mainly because it would be very quick and easy to do, and in fact it only took about twenty minutes. It probably would have taken longer if I'd actually removed any of the mould lines, which I kind of forgot about in my enthusiasm. I don't know what its SKU is; I couldn't find it with a (fairly brief) search in the online store.
  3. I normally wouldn't buy from Privateer Press as the minis are just too pricey, but i found these second hand at Half Price Books for under $8. Anyway, they make a fine troop of Wraiths for my Undead Kings of War army, and painted up really quickly. Tried out some fog effect too (shredded cotton ball). Took pictures with a two different light setups as I'm trying to figure out my wife's camera phone (mine is junk), I liked 'em both so you get to see 'em both.
  4. And here it is! It's finally finished and with a good picture (the camera peeps up a RCon took excellent pictures). I won a bronze on it at RCon, and this was my first year in the adult category. When I got the scores one of the judges wanted to give me a silver, one of the others wanted to give me a COM, and the last one wanted to give me a bronze it averaged out to a bronze, I'm so happy! C&C welcome and very much appreciated!
  5. Same procedure as Flynn I'll come up with a cool name when done Started basecoat finished prime and clean Sorry about crap camerawork mine's still lost I'll try to put up better pictures next time. Also any advice on dark skin would be nice...
  6. Made a coven throne from the start collecting set. Now it just needs basing.: WIP pics:
  7. Following the speed painting success of Sir Forscale I was feeling invigorated - I could achieve my (very modest) paint goal! i just needed to do more of that... Queue the bones wraith I found lying on my living room floor (thanks kids!). I was wondering how well the translucent bones material would paint up. turns out, just like the normal stuff. this very simple PJ was prepped and based, cured two hours, then painted in a single sitting. I kept the palate very simple, with only the sword receiving any embellishment. painted mostly with Nightmare Black, Twilight Blue, and Maggot White. He'll fill a gap in my collection (incorporeal undead) quite nicely. I plan on doing the bones spirit (77098) in a whitish ghostly palate to compare and contrast with this style.
  8. As you are probably already aware, there is an official Middle-earth D&D 5e setting being released this Summer by Cubicle 7. This will no doubt create strong demand for figures for people's campaigns. I've noticed there are numerous figures already in production that will adapt well. The orcs in KS3, the Mountain Troll in KS2 (a tad Jackson-esque, but perfect for a big Olog-Hai or the like: MORE OF THESE!), the ogres in KS3 (perfect Tom, Bert, and William-MORE PLEASE!), the Balor from KS2 makes a passable Balrog (assuming Balrogs have wings), many dwarves, etc. This is only natural, as D&D is substantially derivative of Tolkien and Reaper's choice of subject matter is substantially derivative of D&D. Now obviously, lacking a license, nothing would be official, and trademarked names would be verboten. However, with this firmly in mind, my question is this: a) which figures already in production do you think work best as Middle-earth characters, monsters, etc., and b) what would you like to see to fill out the traditional Middle-earth bestiary in any potential KS4 or LE KS, bearing in mind that as the actual number of different species of monsters will be more limited, a variety of weaponry, poses, armour, sexes, and the like will be important
  9. This week I painted the "Drowned Spirit" figure to use as a wraith in my Frostgrave games. This figure was newly released when I was planning my Frostgrave harbor terrain build, and something about it just made it seem like the perfect fit to be a ghost to haunt the old harbor. So, I ordered it during the12 Days of Reaper promotion, and just now got around to painting it. To help convey the frigid Frostgrave look, I added a Water Effects icicle under the rocky outcropping and used snow flocking n the base. Also, I went with a glossy finish, instead of my usual matte, to help bring across the wet look. It is just intended for game use, so I probably didn't devote enough time as the figure deserves, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out nonetheless. As always, C & C welcome.
  10. Some washed out photos, mostly of the new soldier types introduced in "Frostgrave: Thaw of the Lich Lord" I blame Jonas for my inability to get good shots this time around:
  11. This is a pretty old fellow (you can see that the paint have flaked off some places due to tabletop use) that just got a new base. I never liked the "invisible man" look, so I once upon a time gave him limbs from a broken warhammer skeleton:
  12. My atempt to paint the Wraith Knights from Red Box Games. I've had these for quite some time but always hesitated to put paint on them (or some other mini was infront of them in line). Kind of a quickish paintjob but I'm happy where they're at. I could spend some more time on each but I would have diminishing returns. So they're finished and I'm moving on to the next batch! I notice that some of the figures collected some dirt sometime efter varnishing. Perhaps I'll go back and fix them sometime, but for now I'm leaving them as they are.
  13. This Citadel figure comes from their very old "fantasy tribe cavalry" range & is pretty creepy. I'm not totally sure if the red on the horse's body works but from what my old eyes can tell these areas are either muscle or (top) skin so, I guess it's ok?
  14. Ghostly summons, 77095 Crypt of the Vampiress, 02990 Altar of Evil, 77139 Female: Victim, (P02580C) GW Garden of Morr Scenery and skeletons. Large stuff. Some of this has been posted in separate threads before, this is when the thing is combined. Going to be an entire undead army, and pride of the shelf in a while. Edit: Now with pics. :D
  15. I rarely paint GW miniatures, since I have never played Warhammer, but I'd been wanting to paint up a Cairn Wraith for a long time after I saw one in another painter's gallery, so I finally broke down and bought one, and painted it right away in a single sitting on Saturday.
  16. 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... :)
  17. This is a miniature I've had for a long time. Painted it when I was young. :) Still love the model. So much personality.
  18. 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:
  19. Hello friends, I've officially finished 2 of the figures I started painting a week ago at Starbucks. Here are photos of the Beastman of Reven, and the Wraith Harvester. Both figures were speed painted with the Beastman getting about 4.5 hours of work, and the Wraith about 4. Both were also painted using only 6 colors, the same six for both figures; Brown Liner, Red Shadow, Worn Navy, Brilliant Green, Splintered Bone, Sun Yellow. I used my Reaper Round #1 for some details, but mostly just used cheap utility brushes for the 90% of what I painted. These weren't painted to perfection, I just wanted to see what kind of results I could get with 6 colors and to get it done as quickly as possible as a personal challenge. Feedback always welcome.
  20. I bought Tamiya clear yellow, green and orange and played around with the female bones fire elemental (77083) and the bones grave wraith (77097). The yellow/orange hardly shows at all on the red bones, but the green Tamiya clear turned out ok on the green wraith. Fire Elemental linked due to nudity: http://www.coolminiornot.com/369634?browseid=10757476 Edited to add SKU to tags.
  21. Got my Gloom Wraith, by James van Schaik, painted. Love this sculpt--it's so dynamic. Absolutely full of motion. I tried to do right by this guy--but I was very simple about it, for whatever that's worth lol. I started with a basecoat of Nightmare Black (I wanted to try it out!), then went to work with some plain-ol' cyan. I then lightened some of that up for some higher highlights.And that was basically that. Thanks for looking! Comments and criticism are very welcome.
  22. Rounding up the recent work. More old Grenadier minis (I super-promise I will work on something Reaper soon, very soon). First, a wraith: I was really trying to up the ante with this guy. I base-coated in black and tried highlighting up with three different shades of blue. Really wanted to capture the floating-along movement of the pose. Next an illusionist: I really liked how she turned out. The dress reads bluer than it is in the pictures, but I was very happy with the highlights all around. And two skeletons: I got all stupid-excited about these guys right off the bat. I just washed them (the guy with battleaxe with a green, the other with a brown) and dry-brushed with a slightly-browned white. Easy and pretty effective, I thought. Though I'm sure there's room for improvement. Please feel free to head me the right direction. Thanks for looking.
  23. I have been out of the hobby for ages. Here is one I painted in an earlier life, when drybrushing was king. The OSL on Murkilor the wraith king is from before I knew it was called "OSL". The pictures do not do it justice. It was drybrushed over a black undercoat as far as I remember, mainly old roundpot Citadel and "Miniature Paints by Gamecraft" (smell exacly the same, I belive these were made by the same manufacturer, what today sells as "Coat D'arms". Some of these paints I have with price tags dated 1998 and earlier. And they are still perfectly usable (!).
