  1. I just finished painting these guys and realized they were boring to look at. I used red on top of green for briarlings (that's how briar bushes look). I used purplish brown on top of green for the dryad. I have a lot of trees around my neighborhood that have this look to them - purple top, green bottoms. I used this color scheme for the dryad. But, again, in the end it looked kind of boring. So I invested some time and effort in their bases, and the dryad now is the master of the killer liana! Hope you enjoy! Cheers! ~Z
  2. This was kind of intimidating to start, but I enjoyed painting it once I started. I would like to try another one but using colored resins instead of paint. It's yet another one that is not available through retail.
  3. Still working through bits that have been hanging around my desk...the Giant Clam with unfeasibly large pearl (at least 3 feet/ 1m diameter) seems more like scenery than monster but as I waspainting this one I wondered if it could be the underwater equivalent of the Wolf in Sheep's Clothing and the pearl is the bunny on top? Or is it a mimic that knows how to swim 🤔Hope you like it whatever it is...
  4. OK delay in delivery of next giant so working on random stuff. These two have been falling on my head regularly so I gave them bigger bases to start with! Base-coated them in Zandri Dust to start the process of painting them stone. Next stage should be a wash with Earthshade - but then I picked up the Gargrak's Sewer. I've been using it a lot to shade gold and bronze but this time I coated the whole figure - not even really trying for an even coat and the figures just turned into bronze. Today I gave the rub points a very slight drybrush with gold ( every public bronze I've ever seen has shiny spots and a couple of verdigris trickles. Actual painting time well under an hour and the base coat was most of that. ( the marble bases are off-white, a coat of contrast medium with a bit os Space Wolves Grey swirled in then veins of gold and white dragged in with a pin then gloss varnished)
  5. Introducing General Woundwort Hellbringer otherwise known as "The Stig". Sometime Commander of the Armies of Muspellheim, General of the Volcano Legions, Servant to the true Emperor Surtr...it is said he once 'borrowed ' Sleipnir and made the Bifrost run in less than 12 parsecs...and that he slew the ice dragon whose skin he wears while playing truant from kindergarten using the family sword on which he teethed...it is said that the diamond encrusted bracelets of Storm Giant strength he wears were a gift from Zeus himself...Stig and Loki were on a stag do in Sparta and weighed in on the side of Heracles and the Argonauts in a barroom brawl against Ra and the crew of the Solar barque....Best Giant figure yet from Reaper enjoyed every minute of painting
  6. Grabbed her randomly from pile of unpainted minis back in December.... Her face gave me fits, but had fun with her cloak

  8. I'm working on a Greek Myth army using the a Greek Legends expansion from Bones V. These minotaurs are actually earlier models but all Reaper Bones. I'm then working on some new rangers for Rangers of Shadow Deep, and I've painted up Derrell, Liara, and some other characters I like the look of. One step I took, which I'm pleased with, is to not base the human size models on rounds and then use modelling paste to disguise their bases. They've got very nice oval bases and I can make it work in the games I'll be playing with them.
  9. Here is a female elf archer from the bones V core set - didn't find her in my quick search of the reaper site. She is to table top, but I grew rather fond of her after initially being discouraged.
  10. Really happy with this one. I've been wanting to work on really pushing my highlights, and I figured this would be a good one to go nuts on. I reasoned that her clothing would be made of a silky/satiny material, so it would catch light quite a bit. My original plan was actually to paint her in a color scheme similar to Queen Bavmorda from Willow (since their outfits look so similar at a glance). But, I opted for a last-minute change to the blue-based color scheme right before I started painting. I still think a Bavmorda color scheme would look cool on her, if anyone else wants to run with the idea. This model is beautifully sculpted and was great fun to paint. Special thanks to kazmania for the tip on photographing against black felt. I haven't mastered it yet, but I'm already noticing the improvements in photo quality.
  11. My first time painting something bigger than a regular size mini. I kind of learned as I went. Lots of dry brushing went in on the scales and the wings. Overall, I'm happy with the outcome, especially given that it's a first time deal. I will definitely try out bigger things in the future. The one thing I'm sort of disappointed in is the black lining on the chest-stomach area. The grooves weren't smooth, and I couldn't seem to keep those lines clean. Maybe there is a better/smoother way of doing it? Some sort of a controlled wash? Let me know! As always, all sorts of comments are welcomed! 🙂 EDIT: I realized that he has a name and a number. Narthalyssk 1120 from the core set. I'll make sure to refer to the KS graphic for the future posts.
  12. I painted this little guy up on a whim a while back. He doesn't have much going on from the front, but there's a ton of cool mushroom detail sculpted into his back.
  13. This is what happens when you spend an afternoon watching a double bill of Jason and the Argonauts and Clash of the Titans (80's version), you remember you picked up a big Zeus-alike in a Kickstarter and you must paint him NOW:- Here he is all washed, boiled, straightened, scraped, assembled and primed. Since I'm a messy drybrusher, I did the base first. The stone started with a base of Stone Grey, while the dirt is Leather Brown, it all got a Black Wash, then the stone got a heavy drybrush of more Stone Grey and then everything got a lighter drybrush of Ghost Grey. Since he's so big, I'm going to paint him in sections, starting with his left leg.
  14. Painted up the elves from Bones V, but the sword weilding one was not with his unit! So I pulled out Elanter as their leader. I must say, I still never get the groove of painting a unit.... but I really wanted these elves for the game so I went for it. Others have been more creative with these and/or more skilled - but they look a lot better than when they were unpainted 🙂
  15. Painted up the Bones V boulderkin - and I love them! Fun, quick painting, got to try three color schemes, and gave me some ideas for the table - another model that outperformed my expectation of 'meh - some boulder people'
  16. So this is what took me most of March and half of April to paint.... and well... hmmm.... given that I thought this was the type of thing I would really love, I realized I kind of prefer the little guys at my skill level. I also feel I'm missing something color composition wise... my painting issues I am aware of, but would love comments about how I could have made better color choice given I was set on giving him purple skin. Enjoy!
  17. Here are the faun and satyr from Bones V Greek Odyssey - they look nice in hand if not up to the wonderful standard as seen here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/96965-reaper-bones-v-satyr-and-faun-from-the-greek-odyssey/#comment-2036313. Most please I've ever been by how the grass compliments a mini on the base
  18. Here is the wonderful sculpt known as the Bronze Golem from Bones V Greek Odyssey. Such wonderful detail - could have spent a really long time on this - but that's not my current painting goal - so I went a quicker route - and the sculpt still looks impressive in hand - it is very forgiving - really I could have painted it solid bronze, duncked it in a dark wash and it would still have been beautiful!
  19. Bones 5 WIP is where the work starts in this thread. Expansions Dark Depths: WIP SHOWOFF Dungeon Dwellers: WIP SHOWOFF Brinewind: WIP SHOWOFF Brinewind Extras: WIP SHOWOFF Encounters Charnel Pit of the Ghoul Queen: WIP SHOWOFF Dwarf King's Crypt : WIP p4, 7-10 SHOWOFF Shadows of Ravenhome: WIP SHOWOFF Spiders of Emrith Kul: WIP SHOWOFF Add-ons Adventuring kids: WIP SHOWOFF Arakoth the Ancient: WIP SHOWOFF Handmaidens: WIP SHOWOFF Yog Sothoth: WIP SHOWOFF Maybe more I don't remember yet Starting with a dry fit of 19507 Spiders of Emrith Kul encounter set. Not sure what to do with those bodies in webs on the slot. Need to go back and look at the pics to see if I should cut them or see if I have a spare slotta base to stand them up. Backdrop is a black cardstock.
  20. Here is the pirate captain from the Bones V Brinewind expansion. Had a lot of fun with the coat and using an orangy red.
  21. Hi all - I had so much joy painting this up becuase I didn't really like it but then saw posts which inspired me and I shamelessly copied parts of! And it painted up quickly and is quirky/unique for the table! So her it is (inspired by Inarah: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/96811-bog-homonculus/#comment-2034051, and Mocha: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/85036-03902-bog-homonculus/#comment-1800696)
  22. I've been working on this guy for the better part of a month and just finished him tonight. He was a blast to paint, and I'm pretty happy with the finished product. The green wrappings could have probably used some more intense highlighting, but I'm not gonna lose sleep over it. Initially, I wasn't a big fan of the vultures (I put them off until the very last phase of painting). But, one I got some paint in them, they grew on me.
  23. Definately inspired by the glow and blue spiders from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/96576-19507-bones-5-spiders-of-emrith-kul-encounter-set/#comment-2030326 Had fun with this - maybe someday will come back and make a large scenic base to integrate - for now need to break down to store. Bonus - I will get to use this at the table! Lots of pics...... but lots of pieces 🙂
  24. Here is the Hippocampus optional figurehead for Sophie's Revenge. I wanted a more warn wooden underneath, but ended up unable to restrain my love of shiny paint! I may work this over more once I have th ship ready (so maybe next century....)
  25. Here is the troll from Bones V Dungeon Dwellers Expansion. He was easy and fun to paint - I kept trying to make his hair a dark green, but it didn't feel right - so the orange hair!
