Mothsniper posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingThe way of the Dawi-kin A goal of Acquiring every single Reaper Dwarf and painting em up. Master check list has been put together that will be updated with time. Any duplicate model will receive conversion using Reaper weapons. I like my check-off lists and achievement progress icons. Green box indicates the mini is owned, the picture next to model indicates that is has been painted. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Reaper, Dwarf Mancatcher, sku: 14463 Made this guy a Noblemen with bright colored clothes and golden glave. Reaper, King Axehelm of Kragmarr, 77478 Wanted a dirty worn look on this dwarf kind, and a high contrast in color scheme of white and red. Made a mistake on this one using wrong type of shade that made everything glossy, had to layer addition shades of different brand to take out the gloss. turned out a bit darker than planned. Reaper, Dwarven Brewmeister, 02559 Quite a strait forward model to paint. Did not want crazy colors for this guy. A variation of royal blue color scheme with gold patterns and closed eye lids could be interesting. The rest of the gang. Those mugs man, are like half the size of that poor little barrel. Wanted grouped colors of tans and browns to create tonal contrast instead of use of intense colors. These are quite easy to paint, good models. Reaper, Hagar, Dwarven Hero, 77482 Wanted to make Hagar and Durgam Deepmug into a two brother team of green-beards. Just leather, iron, and green. Reaper, Durgam Deepmug Dwarf Hero, 77400 The green-beard brother of Hagar. Rangers both, with green rune weapons Reaper, Dwarf Royal Weapomaster, 77574 There is nothing royal about this malicious looking guy. Went for high contrast red/white. I was thinking of possible conversions, I don't know, this is not the most interesting dwarf model they have for that. Reaper, Fulumbar, Dwarf Warrior, 77011 Gave him axe and a shield from reaper Weapon pack III Usually I do not go for bright colors, yet this warrior needed some frost armor! (too much terreria of late) Reaper, Fulumbar, Dwarf Warrior, 77011 The original model with a bit older paint job, or battle dirt paint job ;) But with TrueBlood effect paint from GreenStuff Reaper, Freja Fangbreaker , 77073 This is one of the cooler looking models, even though was a bit hard to paint. Older paint job, dirty, battle weathered. Went with Conan the Barbarian face paint. Reaper, Freja Fangbreaker , 77073 Same model with Weapon Pack III axe upgrade. Most recent paint job, cleaner with different paint scheme of bronze and green.
Miniature tracking software?
Cranky Dog posted a topic in Off-Topic RampancyDoes anyone use some sort of software to keep track of their miniature collections? With pictures and/or searchable tags? Anyone in the hobby for a while, and who invested in Bones (and many other miniature) Kickstarters; Warhammer armies; Heroclix armies; individual or box sets at your FLGS or online store, etc. has accumulated so many that they tend to forget what exactly they own anymore. I know I went over the 1000 individual miniature mark after Bones 2. And with Bones 4 around the corner, it keeps growing alarmingly fast. And I know I'm not the only one. Sure for the Kickstarters miniatures, I can always go back to the original campaign page and look up the images. But there certainly must be a simple application that would do the same job as Reaper's tag search, but without requiring coding skill. I think my ideal format would be something that would show: Picture; name; company; manufacturer code (if available); sculptor name (if available); and any amount of tags (male - fighter - sword - elf - bow), and then filter the results. I know it can be done; I just don't know how. I know there are image organization software, movie collection software, comic book collection software, music collection software, etc. But haven't found anything more generic for miniatures. February 2019 Update: I'm taking the Excel route afterall.
New display case
72moonglum posted a topic in Conversions, Presentation, and TerrainSo I think this should probably go in the show off section: So last year, after working at a spice export company for ten years, in management's ultimate wisdom, they closed down our office and moved it to two different offices, one in California and one to Chennai, India. I got a new job in a different industry, so all's well that ends well. One of the perks I did end up was this display case that they used to show off spice samples. I've had it in my basement for quite a while now, but a few weekends ago I finally found a cheap piece of furniture to put it on, so last night built the shelves I got from Super Duper Target and filled it full of my painted stuff. Here it is with an angle to the little area I slavishly paint away at And a closer view
ultrasquid posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingI have a lot of minotaurs. I share them with you here. You can share yours too if you like. This one is big, 50mm toe to brow, nearly 100mm total height. Believed to be from Games Workshop in the '90s. Base is hand-built from wood, sand, and acrylic gel. I meant for the color to resemble a black Angus bull, but it turned out more like a gorilla. WIP More angles:
My name is Doctore Oenomaus, I have started my collection when I was gifted upon by my mother a board game filled with detailed miniatures taken from realms and eras all fated to battle each other in the name of the gods, such was the theme of Heroscape. Then I came across fantasy, medieval, and science fiction miniatures from novelty stores, comic book stores, Ebay and of trade. After parting with some coin, I now hold quite the variety of miniatures; vast and numerous for such a new person of collecting. Now, I procured some Ral Partha, and Bones minis, unsullied, and un painted... in attempt to join the ranks of miniature artists and painters, I bought some acrylic and stole my sister's paintbrush...now, here I am humbled...to be here, and I show you some of my wares, even though of low quality. I will continue to improve as I strive to emulate all other's works as best I can. Sincerely, Genesis.
