  1. OK, I'm gonna run a Paranoia Game. I want to use NOVA troops as the PC Torubleshooters. Going to paint up some IMEFs as Green Goons, and Some IntSec Blue Troopers, too. Going to use some of the scientist characters as R&D types, with various security clearance colored lab coats. So, I want to know whether I should do head swaps on the minis, or leave the NOVA with Helmets (there's one with no helmet already, but I was going to use all 6 different NOVA) Also, one of the Missions I have has the PCs start at Red and get promoted gradually up all the way to Ultraviolet, stopping
  2. Here's our party of Iron Kingdoms adventurers that I've converted. FIrst off- this is our Ogrun Artillerist/Alchemist. The main body of him was made from a Reaper Bones Orc, and the cannon is made from a GW missile. This is Lug- our Mighty Gobber Man-at-arms/Duelist. It is pretty nice having a little gobber for our tank. He was made from a Bones female dwarf- sword hand is from Mordheim, and the head and breastplate are just green stuff. This last one is our Priest of Cyrris/Arcanist. He also dabbles in alchemy. Also a bones mini with less sculpti
  3. Start: http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n14/djizomdjinn/Miniatures/1ox4RKx.jpg~original Current: http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n14/djizomdjinn/Miniatures/IMG_9479.jpg The only real conversion I did was cut a sword off a Reaper weapon pack and glue it in her hand. She looked and felt kind of unbalanced beforehand. Gloss is a result of future floor polish. I didn't prime the mini, so flecks kept chipping off her hair and fins. Things left to do: Paint the sword blade (waiting on some interference paint), dull down and reshade the hair, base on something. Critique, comments grea
  4. This is my take on Typhus, Death Guard champion of Nurgle. Added a nurgling to his base and swapped his scythe blade out for a glaive because I thought it looked more awesome on him and I wanted to steal his scythe blade for a daemon prince conversion. Note, I have decided that taking pictures of Nurgle paint schemes is a major pain. The nastiness looks awesome for the force but taking pictures is a bear.
  5. This rhino tank conversion (Games Workshop 40K vehicle) was an exercise in making it look like it had fought the 10,000 year crusade to unseat the corpse-emperor without any trips to the maintenance depot. Painted it up for Nurgle's Death Guard (pestilence and decay) but refrained from mutating it much. I'm pretty pleased with the nastiness, though if I had an airbrush I probably could have done muuuuuch better.
  6. This is an unaligned 'Skaven Marine' Daemon Prince I did for a friend of mine several years ago. Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures, I don't have the figure to take better quality. Mashup of the Vermin Lord with the Chaos Marine Prince. The back pack spikey balls are from Plague monks. The pet rat is a Barrow Rat (02544) from Reaper. I really love this model, probably more than my Death Guard Vermin Lord conversion that I kept.
  7. This is the first of my 40k Chaos Marine Daemon Prince conversions from a few years back, a Daemon Prince/Skaven Vermin Lord mashup for Nurgle. I'm still very pleased with the conversion and paint on this figure and probably wouldn't change anything if I did it now.
  8. Here is one of my earlier daemon prince conversions. The model is largely just repositioned with added detail scupted but the backpack heads are from Kroot Hounds, the head is from an old Epic titan, and the head piece is from an old Necromunda staff. I'm reasonably pleased with the paint job still, though I could do better now. Might eventually touch it up a bit.
  9. So, one of the local A.C. Moore stores is going out of business - a fact I didn't find out until they were on the last leg of the journey (and everything was 70% off) - so the place was pretty picked over. Still, I found some decent stuff for terrain building - something I haven't, in the past, been all that interested in, but with some recent sales of GW terrain at various stores, my interest in keeping a single-use gaming room (and attendant regalia) in the house, etc. - I figured I'd pick some up, and scored some trees, ground cover, lichen, etc. from Creative Time (the trees are a lit
  10. I took a chronoscope Marie, and added a CAV jump booster, replaced her arms with blood nebula mercenary pistol arms, and gave her some stabilizer fins. Now I'm trying to paint her. I'm pretty happy with the base colors, and the face, but I can't decide if it needs more or less carbon marks from zipping around on her jump pack. Any suggestions for doing better scorch marks?
  11. When Reaper released this miniature (Lady Moray), I was thrilled. She looks just like my very first D&D character, a bard named Valanth Mocnjay, who has a pet mockingbird. I bought the figure right away. I didn't like the long knife (short sword?) she was holding in her left hand, so I converted it to a lute I had in my bits box, which I thought more fitting. (Lute is from from Reaper's Adventuring Accessories pack SKU#02638) The stump and log are from Secret Weapons Miniatures. The snow is crushed glass (also from SWM). The wooden base was turned by hand by a friend of mine. He s
  12. I was asked to do up some minis for a wedding gift. That is to say, someone else will be giving them as a gift at a wedding. I suppose technically this is my first paid commission. The minis are the soon-to-be-wed couples' D&D characters. They've never had proper minis for their game before, and aren't expecting these. There were a couple of requests. Firstly, the gift-giver did not like Lysette's sword. This was replaced by a spell effect, which felt a little rushed, but does the job and inspired one of the vignette ideas. Also, the barbarian, though illiterate, keeps a journal, hoping
  13. So I'm here without any proper saws wanting to take the broccoli off some larger pieces. What is the best saw or cutting tool to cut through decent thicknesses of bonesium?
  14. So I got bored and went on a sci-fi kick while painting an old Mega Minis scorpion, and decided it needed to be a robot scorpion with a machine-gun tail. One of my Kickstarter IMEF Bones gave up his weapon for this cause. Not terribly happy with the body tones. I couldn't quite get them where I wanted them. However, I'm very happy with how its gun came out in the end.
  15. WIP fro the moment. My character for organized play (Pathfinder Society) is an elven inquisitor of Calistria. The goddess's favored weapon is a whip, so I'm making the character so he can engage with melee attacks from 15 feet away. I couldn't find a mini yo fit the character concept, so I got an "Elquin" mini and cut the axe out if his right hand and replaced it with the whip from the Lorena mini. After cutting the whip away from the hand, I realized it was connected to the arm twice on purpose. Only one connection wouldn't be enough to support the long whip without constant bending.
  16. Okay, so I posted the process of making this guy in my WIP. He is now finally done -- this is "Danar" the assassin, who is typically armed with a sword and dagger. To match a character I wrote up, I gave him a spiked chain using an old Viking method of making plaited wire (I kid you not.) I posted that method to "Painting Tips and Techniques," btw. Without further ado, I present Laeglathril, an elven fighter/barbarian who is a spiked chain specialist: Comments and questions welcome!
  17. My plan is to use 4 Ice Toads in my Icingstead army for ReaperCon; however, I like to use unique sculpts for my Warlord armies. There is currently only one Ice Toad sculpt, so my plan is to use the wonderful Jason Wiebe Monstrous Snowmen as proxies. That also poses a problem, since there are only 3 snowmen sculpts. Enter the Jason Wiebe Pumpkin Horrors. They are similarly shaped to snowmen, and with a little work could quite closely resemble one. So, with quite a bit of filing, greenstuff, and brush on varnish, I managed to turn pumpkins into snowballs. I also added a bit of greenstuff around
  18. "En Loki hafði þá ferð haft til Svaðilfara, at nökkuru síðar bar hann fyl. Þat var grátt ok hafði átta fætr, ok er sá hestr beztr með goðum ok mönnum." "But Loki's relations with Svaðilfara [the horse of a giant] were such that a while later he gave birth to a colt. It was grey and had eight feet, and this is the best horse among gods and men." -Snorri Sturlason, Edda (written around 1220 CE, the latter line a translation by Jesse Byock) This is a conversion of two Unicorn figures into Sleipnir, the horse of the Chieftain of the Norse Gods, Odin. I used t
  19. Here is Sammie Two-Drinks. An NPC for my game. I really appreciate all of the feedback I've gotten from people so far. In the short time I've been participating on this forum, I really feel I've started to improve. Now, I need to go paint a bunch of monster as fast as possible. I've spent too much time on Sammie. WIP: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/53732-ingrid-female-gnome-convesion/
  20. I'm gonna try to do a WIP and implement some of the excellent advice I got in my "show off" thread. I run a D&D 4e game for some friends. Since I like painting minis I'm trying to populate their world with a variety of characters. I don't want their poor characters to live in a world where everyone is always running around with swords drawn, so I wanted to add some unarmed NPCs to the campaign. I was thinking about this the other day, and one of my players who is (among other things) a photographer. He had been working doing party pictures and he told me the story of a comely youn
  21. FIGURE...REAPER (# 02321 = Black Orc)...Conversion (removed sword and added chain mace hand)... NOTES IN REGARD TO FIGURE...I executed my figure in my standard way (as other black orcs I have posted on this forum), but made the following changes/alterations as suggested by a couple of Reaper members. 1. I placed this orc on a darker base setting which is less pristine (Ying-Yang) and more as part of a flowing/belonging into the scene. 2. I dulled down the flesh skin tone and flesh coarseness on the creature. 3. I dulled down the shiny aspect of the weapons and added a slight ru
  22. FIGURE...REAPER (# 02321 = Black Orc)...Conversion with axe removed and battle staff added. FINISHED...This is the finished and mounted figure from my (WIP) posting of step-by-step painting of same said figure. I hope that you like it,,,and my style presentation of the Black Orc. Paul (Cardancer)
  23. FIGURE...REAPER (# 02321 = Black Orc)...Conversion with axe removed and battle staff added. FOLLOWUP...This is a followup posting to my (WIP) dated 2-7-2014 and a reply to a (PM) that requested how I paint my black orcs and materials I use. STEP-BY-STEP...This is a brief basic step-by-step process that shows how I paint (my) black orcs. PHOTO 1...My figure is primed with Krylon flat white...first basic body/skin cover is a mixture of (midnight black/espresso/hauser dark green). PHOTO 2...Body/skin highlight is done with a mixture of (dark flesh/medium pink flesh/ac flesh/sable
  24. It's my first conversion! I lopped the hands and top of the head off Damien and added the hands and hat from the Black Mist, with a bit of green stuff to make the top of the hat a bit wider for Damien's big hair/horns. Painted up as a Gunslinger. Still trying to get my camera setup right and struggling with glossiness on the mini. Some of the subtlety is killed by the gloss, the pants are more of an olive and the straps stand out against them a bit more, for instance. WIP starts here but it's a while until I start painting it. Hope you guys enjoy it! I had a lot of fun
  25. I ran a Works-in-Progress thread for this figure here: link. The abridged version: Enjoy, Derek
