  1. My first item is a mini my brother in law sent me, presumably to paint for him (he included no notes or instructions). It didn't come in a package and it had no markings, so I have no idea who made it. I actually struggled with it for a while, because there's a lot going on, but eventually realized that after I got the basic colours on it I could just splotch some red in there and hit it with a brown wash and it would look good and dirty. As though it had been through a battle... duurrrrr! So it's basic tabletop quality. And since he didn't pay with chocolate, which is the agreed upon price f
  2. So this is a mini that has been sitting on my half finished shelf for more than a year. She's an Endless Fantasy Tactics Summoner that I had gotten out of a miscast pile with a bunch of others at a con. The body of the mini was mostly fine, but she had a messed up hat. So somewhere along the way I decided that I would just put a warhammer torch bit on her head and make her a crazy fire witch. Then I base coated her, and promptly left her on a shelf collecting dust. Well I finally painted her.
  3. Hi, Fast but very pleasant work. My character from d&d campaign. Desert warrior with golemic hand. I took this guy grom right: http://images.dakkadakka.com/gallery/2011/3/17/198309_md-Dirz,%20Rackham,%20Warhammer%20Fantasy.jpg And made him look like this
  4. I'm running the D&D 5e starter set for my friends, and in the absence of a proper nothic miniature from any manufacturer that I could find (DDM prepainted minis don't count :P) I decided to make my own. This is my first attempt at doing a conversion with green stuff. The tiik model had the right posture and it's appendages looked like they didn't need any work. It just screamed "easy conversion!" so I went for it. Obviously my sculpting skills are pretty rudimentary, but I think I did a convincing enough job. The paint job was actually a little rushed, too, as I didn't finish him unti
  5. It's been a while since I posted any of my finished work here, so I thought I might share my recently finished PC minis for my gaming group's switch to 5th edition. This rogue I painted for my wife, who didn't want to make a new character, so she basically ported her old character over to the new rule system. If you care to compare this version of the PC to the one I painted two years ago, you can find Lorna the Huntress here. I couldn't be more pleased with the way that the colors I chose work together. I hope you agree. :)
  6. My Iron Kingdoms RPG group sometimes can’t hold back. When we saw that Borka: Vengeance of the Rimshaws was riding a polar bear… well, we had to figure out how that might work for us. Luckily, we have a very good GM who is willing to make up some rules in the name of Awesome. And then it fell to me to create some awesome minis featuring our heroes riding bears. I grabbed a couple bears from Scibor (they’re very large) and put a couple of Reaper Bones minis on them- then did a lot of sculpting. Here are the results: First off- the Gobber Man-at-Arms/Duelist/Horseman:
  7. Hi everyone, it's been a while. So, after reading this topic about an unreleased sculpt from Sandra Garrity, I decided I should give it a try. Starting with the metal version of the Hydra, I dug the boneyard in search for replacement heads and wings. After some trial and multiple orders, I chose the following heads; Ebonwrath's head and neck for the Black Dragon head, Blight Fang's head for the Green Dragon head, Diabolus's head for the Red Dragon, Stormwing's head for the Blue Dragon and the Karamor's head for the White Dragon head. The new heads don't fit the Hydra at all, they have to
  8. This is my first completed figure and my first Bones figure. I've worked on it for weeks, on and off, to use it in a tabletop game. I was attempting to achieve an inner glow from the crystal, but I don't think it worked out as well as it I was hoping. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  9. Another one of my recent quick-and-dirty conversions, and a quick-and-dirty paint job on it... I wasn't bothering to shoot for anything more than tabletop quality on this, as it was all about the conversion. The Bones Mariel Twinspar mounted on the bottom half of 77037 the Bones Medusa, with a fish tail sculpted on the end. Most of the detail on the tail is actually painted on rather than sculpted. My second mini for the month of Feb. For obvious reasons I'm naming her Cap'n Morganna...lol
  10. My favorite RPG has a race of PCs called Windlings - 18 inch tall pixie/fairy/kender things. The selection of fairy type minis out there is less than ideal, but I noticed Reaper has a selection of fairy wings for adding to minis. What are the odds that I can successfully add these to a Bones figure, or should I go out and buy a metal version to add them to?
  11. Hi all, Here is a little conversion work I had fun building. Presenting the Pathfinder Goblins on Giant Spider. This piece is made of a StarWars Knobbly Spider ; on which I built up a little Howdah with coffee stirrers, toothpicks & random bits ; I tamed the spider with a dollar store chain and then added a lots of Bones Pathfinder Goblins Warriors and Pyro. (Very fun little characters). Here is a quick Work in Progress shot of the Howdah being built. And in the end, this massive spider fits reasonably well with my GW goblin spider riders... C&C Welcome
  12. Reaper Bones 77160: Judas Bloodspire, Vampire (converted) For my first Iron Kingdoms RPG session, we spent a good portion of the time writing up character sheets, and not everyone came to the table with a concept -- so I didn't have everyone's custom minis ready (not knowing any better than the players what they were going to play). One of the players decided to go with a Gun Mage -- basically a spellcaster/gunslinger who specializes in infusing his pistols (and the ammunition therein) with special effects. I used a cowboy proxy for the first game, but to get the proper Iron Kingdoms loo
  13. Have you ever noticed just how easy it is to get carried away? I thought you might. SO the story is I had this West Wind miniature from their Realms of Terror Gargoyle range: ...the one on the bottom left. I thought he'd work well for a Lost Prince Mordheim Scenario: The Lost Prince with the "Oops, too late" proviso...he is headless. Then Ben, a fellow judge of The Second Golden Tom Contest, suggested we start a W.I.P. thread on T.B.M.F. to show off the pieces that, had we been eligible to enter, would have lost the contest. SO I thought this would be an opportunity to do up The Lost
  14. Of course, I had to continue on the Fantasy Gladiators project. First we have some converted Orcs, using Warhammer bits with Eastern Front Studio heads. The Scizore style fellow (inspired by Warcraft's Kargath Bladefist) uses a Pathfinder Bones Goblin spear or sword I had lying around, that fit perfectly. The teeny fellow is a Mantic Orcling who just seemed to fit in the armor style...and you know what they say about Goblins. The littler, the nastier.
  15. Hi, For no specific reason while browsing through my bits box I decided to cut up a Bones Gnoll Warrior and transform it into a blood crazed Gnoll Boar-Centaur. The upper body is Reaper model #77012 and the legs are from a boar (I think a GW sculpt). Here is a pic of the work in progress (my attempt at hiding the seam with green stuff). Comments and suggestion welcome!
  16. Since I got a pretty good response from the figure I made of Frog from Chrono Trigger and from my Fullmetal Alchemist modified figures, I went on to my next challenge. I want to make a decent figure for Guts, the main character from the Berserk Manga and Anime. Now anyone who is a fan knows that finding an actual mini of him can be difficult, and I'm gonna use it for my next D&D character, so I wanted something special for it. Now I ordered 4 different reaper mini's as candidates, not sure which I'll use yet, as each has something to offer, but none are perfect. Probably will end up a
  17. Well here is my completed Guts from the Berserk Anime and Manga. I used 02962: Killian, Bounty Hunter Not perfect, but I'm pretty happy with the results. If you like to see how I got there, here is my works in progress posts, which lists the things I mainly tried to do but failed, but I may attempt this again and better at a later date. It was quite the learning experience.
  18. So I have this brilliant set: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/female%20orc/sku-up/02553 The evil sorceress is fun, but I'll be honest, I got it for the skeletal ogre, or orc, or whatever he is. He's awesome! Unfortunately, he's holding a towel. Or a cerement, or a ritual cloth or whatever. Like a butler. Fortunately, the hands-and-towel unit is a separate bit. I'd like to convert him to a skeletal ogre holding weapons. But it turns out the Boneyard is not so simply searched. Can anyone recommend Reaper Boneyard bits which are essentially hands, roughly human size
  19. Using Ardellen as a base, A little clay for a head, and just some paint, I made Frog as a character. Now I made a character based upon him in Dungeons and Dragons, and was frustrated in finding a real figure to match him. This came out pretty well I think. I've really enjoyed taking figures outside of what they were designed for and making something unique.
  20. 02785: Sabertooth Tiger Man The WIP Brothers Of Tooth And Claw __________________________________________________________________________________________ I decided that my next miniature looked like he was missing something... a shield and he is so top heavy he kept falling over. So I hand made him both and here is how I did it. I found an interesting stencil that had this square hooked rain drop design on it. I cutt it out then carving and rounded off the edges. I also had to scoop out the center a little to allow it to fit flush with his hand. I then used wielders putty to
  21. Here's an individual WIP of an idea I had, upon realizing I had excess Blasters for my Mechadrome mechs. The original Superfortress looks gnarly but is heavily outfitted for anti-vehicle firepower. Most 28mm combat is more about infantry, or at most, many infantry and a handful of vehicles. I recalled having another, and set about making an anti-infantry version that visually blended the Mechadrome and original LOS aesthetics; as a bonus this leaves me with a BFG laser to stick on, say, a Rhino, in order to have an in-theme IFV/APC. I stuck the legs on with huge amounts of automotive epox
  22. Hey all, my friends and I have been bitten by the Mordheim bug again as of late. For those of you who don't know, Mordheim is a long-abandoned skirmish-level war game by Games Workshop. Bands of explorers, adventurers, and miscreants comb through the ruined city of Mordheim in search of Wyrdstone (radioactive meteorite chunks). One of the best things about this game is that you only need eight to ten models for your warband. That allows for some fantastic converting and modeling opportunities. This fellow is a goblin a pieced together from a variety of GW kits. I hope you like him. C
  23. So here it is! Pics of all the conversions my husband and I did this weekend! This will be my WIP for painting them all! Some of the pictures are truly terrible and I will take better ones tomorrow to replace them. But this is a teaser for now. In a later post i will try to break down what is in each conversion =P In order of the pics below: First and second area goblin archer riding a spider and a mage that I went all out to convert and modify. She's got so many different parts! Third picture is a hybird of two different lizard men, and the barbarian that was on the goblin archer's new
  24. I painted my sheep familiar for D&D he has a hat.
