  1. After some final sealer, Ajaxxus 5.0, Tiefling Barbarian, is ready to hit the dungeons! I'm not sure why he wound up so shiny in these photos, he's not glossy in person. Hanging out with Sir Forscale to show his reduced stature from earlier versions: I have a WiP thread of the conversion process here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71285-lidless-eye-wip-ajaxxus-skiotho-tiefling-barbarian-conversion/?p=1456616 Hopefully I'll get to play in a game rather than run one soon and be able to use him again!
  2. Another conversion, this time a Gnome Bard from Reaper's "Balto Burrowell". This is to represent one of the player characters in my "Storm King's Thunder" campaign.
  3. I started this guy last year at Reapercon in the Convert a colossal skeleton class, and entered him into the open category at this year's Reapercon; he earned a bronze. WIP is located here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62739-colossal-skeleton-conversion-for-reapercon-2016/
  4. Like the title says, I'm planning on converting the Bones Colossal Skeleton and entering it at Reapercon next year in the open category. Here's what I'm starting with: I'm planning on the using the cape as, well, a cape. I'm swapping out the hammer for the sword, and I'm going to be grafting that other piece onto his front, over his pelvis. I'm going to be adding a shield to his right arm; I haven't decided if I'm going to remove the dagger or not. Thoughts? I'm also undecided about possibly altering the pose of one or both arms. I'll be sculpting fur across his shoulders to hide the joi
  5. Was bored at work so I started doodling in Bones. I call this kitbash a Bathalian Maw. It's the Primarch with the arms from the Centurion and the mouth from an Erynth Grask. It's to the point of needing a bit of greenstuff to marry the face to the head better. Also might use a second Primarch to extend the torso and give it a second set of arms with the original Primarch arms below the current Centurion ones. If I do I'm likely to borg in part of the second Primarch's tail to lengthen the tail to balance the longer torso. Anyway, it's kept me amused for a half hour or so which was its main pur
  6. I decided that the Wolf demon needed a better tail so I took one from the giant scorpion and borged it onto him. Minor greenstuff blending at the join to follow and I need to repair some weirdness with his right lower leg.
  7. Many moons ago, when the first official preview for D&D 5E were coming out, a friend and I were discussing that the Paladin preview had a Half-Orc as the example art, and it would be interesting to see more atypical race/class combos in the books. He had suggested a Tiefling Barbarian, and lo and behold, not but five minutes later, WotC previewed the Barbarian and it was...a generic Viking style Human. Later that day, during downtime at work, I thought I'd make it up to both of us and sketch out a concept for a Tiefling Barbarian. I kept the 4E & 5E pact-style Tieflings, and took a
  8. So this ReaperCon, I took Gene Van Horne's Bones conversion class (and Bob Ridolfi was there too) This was one of the critters I made. He is the Chimera body, with an unknown piece for the tail tip, the spider legs from the demon spider thing, the Tilik warrior's fin, and the silver dragon's head with a sculpted lower jaw The day after my class, I sat with Julie Guthrie and she showed me how to do various textures. She really liked my conversion, but advised taking him apart and redoing him, and so I did! Here he is, re-assembled and with my best attempts at green stuff texture I
  9. Yes, the challenge insanity has gotten me, too. Just not quite as bad....I think. It's also a slightly different variety. I have 50 of these guys: Don't ask me why, I have no idea; I think they've been multiplying in the dark foot locker they were stored in. Anyway, the challenge I have set for myself is this: I will convert 49 of them so that no two are the same. That's right, I'm going to (hopefully) create a small horde of individualized mono-pose plastic goblins. I am going to leave 1 unconverted, for two reasons: 1) I will have an original figure to compare my conve
  10. Some of you may remember that last December I converted an extra Darkrasp figure, that I had traded for back in 2013, into a Santa Claus themed wizard figure. Well, this week I finally got around to painting the original Darkrasp, Evil Priest, figure that came in the Dark Heroes set from my original Kickstarter pledge; and once again I did a conversion. A bit of train of thought now... As I looked at this figure and pondered how to paint it, I considered how most of the painted examples of this figure that I have seen have been done up in dark colors: black, grey, brown; and I decided t
  11. Need somewhere to keep my dwarf army. Thought to build LED underground small garrison fort/outpost. Will have 4 floors Magnetized bottom floor for large models And will try to stuff as much detail as I can. Began with a wooden simple frame, and 2" PinkFoam. Was debating to build up all details and then paint it at once, or paint it in pieces and install them into the box as I go. Do to the nature of the LED lighting, and much uncertainties with LED lighting, I decided to craft it piece by piece instead of all at once. Also, I do not have a good way to cover very large, har
  12. These were painted in several sessions. I would call this low tabletop quality, taking around 2-2.5 hours each figure. I really wanted some 28mm Fimir to paint and to use for Heroquest and/or D&D (Pathfinder) as a new monster that my players will not have heard of (my group has never played Warhammer... or messed with the model ranges). One group was converted using Games Workshop Ork and Goblin pieces, as well as a Bombshell Miniatures axe. I'm happy with them all and I'm happy to say the converted ones (the standard bearer) was the most frightening conversion I've ever done, it was
  13. A while back I came across a photo of the Games Workshop metal Witch Hunter figure of the fellow carrying an axe in one hand, and a puppet in the other. I knew I had to have one for my Frostgrave collection, as it was such a silly looking model. Luckily, I was able to pick one up on Ebay. The puppet, as it comes with the figure, represents a religious personality with a mitre and staff. I, however, wanted it to be more of a "Mini Me" representation of the puppeteer (obviously driven a little looney from repeated trips into the frozen city). So, I replaced the crooked head of the staff w
  14. So, a while back I posted my current D&D character (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69530-elf-paladin-figure-converted-for-dd/). I am very happy with how both figures turned out, however my character has since acquired some new equipment in-game, and being an obsessive converter I went ahead and got started on making a new version of him. The old figures will still be useful, as I haven't discarded any of my old equipment and I'm a sufficiently hard-core roleplayer that I wouldn't go around in full battle gear unless I were expecting trouble. I would at least ditch the two
  15. For this particular project, I start in the middle. That is, I already painted up four of #2763, "Shrend, Alligator Man" (by Jason Wiebe) for an over-the-top "Pirates of the Spanish Main" RPG campaign a few years back. One thing I love about this miniature is that the arms and head allow for some slight variation in posing, so even if I have four of them, they don't look like complete clones of each other. Now, a friend of mine is starting an Iron Kingdoms "Unleashed" campaign (after my own Iron Kingdoms campaign wraps up, so we've still got a couple months or so), so our thought
  16. Here are my new were-rats! I wanted to have more than melee so I did a lazy conversion by grabbing some GW zombie bits with spears. I stuck a wooden bead over the spear part and filled it with supper glue. A little paint and viola not to shabby (for the table anyway). I cleaned up the bases a bit after picture time as well . I am working on a scenario with a cult of were-rats worshiping ZBP Abominarat. Should be fun .
  17. I converted and painted these guys up for Inarah's paint binge this weekend. I tried giving them each a different skin color; I also decided to gore 'em up a bit; they are in order from clean to 'CW, you are a sicko', so you can skip the last few if you want to. Please let me know what you think. Clean ghast---swapped his base for one from Secret Weapon From the looks of those bones, he hasn't eaten in a while. You may want to run... Drooling ghast---swapped his head with a GW zombie head. Bloody handed ghast---I added some clothing to this one
  18. I recently posted over on the Conversions sub-forum about how I converted the Olivia, Female Cleric, figure into a Sigilist wizard for a new Frostgrave warband I am working on: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69559-olivia-cleric-bones-jolie-scribe-to-sigilist-apprentice-conversion/ A Sigilist derives their magical power from words and languages, so I wanted her to be very "word" oriented. Besides her two books and inkwell, I wanted to paint her cloak to look like it had magical words floating all over it that appeared to floating to the surface and then receding back down ag
  19. I'm starting to work on a Sigilist warband for Frostgrave, and I needed to come up with a wizard and apprentice figures. For those unfamiliar with Frostgrave, Sigilists are a wizard type that are experts in magic dealing with words, writing, and languages. So I definitely wanted figures who had some visual connection to that aspect of the wizard type. Also, since Frostgrave is set in a frozen city, I wanted figures that were dressed in warmer clothes. For the Wizard, I first looked at the Olivia, Female Cleric, figure that I had got in the Bones II Kickstarter; and while perf
  20. Did this Hive Tyrant yesterday/today. He is magnetized to be able to switch between legs and wings. The 'not alien' head is from Epoch Studioz. Overall, I am really happy with this one. Edit: Updating the post with the based miniature. It has some drool, now, too! Alternate version, with all magnetized parts switched out:
  21. continuing my month of demon pairs. I present wingless ape demons. I don't think the wings added that much and if I wanted to use them as Bar-lgura they needed to be removed. Then came the resculpting of back fur, which I think came out pretty well. I also added a green glow to the black ape, some kind of touch spell effect. Im stealing this lyric from One Boot
  22. Took three eves to paint up and convert a Halfling in Bones. He's originally a ranger, so he had a bow in left hand and a quiver on his back. So I cut off and green stuffed the quiver into a scabbard, and since who I was making for originally said something about a pipe, changed the hand to be holding a long halfling pipe. Here's the finished product, hopefully they'll like it! Although I'm not certain what it exactly means, I painted it to what I would call tabletop....but I really don't get the differences, for me only spending three nights and not sweating that his feet are too dark, (he
  23. This past weekend I completed the four Orc Stalker figures from the Bones 1 Kickstarter Orcpocalypse add-on set. I converted three of the four figures so they would all look different. In the photo below, the first one is the original figure, the second has a new sword from the Orc Berserker added to his raised hand, the third has a replacement GW club added (Not sure if it was orc or troll in origin) and his other hand repositioned, and the fourth has his arms repositioned to hold a spear from one of the Orc Hunter figures. These aren't my best paint jobs by far, (it ended up bein
  24. Another fellow who doesn't really go with any of my other recently completed minis, the Dwarf Lich King from Ganesha Games "Hammer and Forge" for "Song of Blades and Heroes" He's slightly converted, with his Freddy Kreuger glove replaced with a more generic casting hand, ripped from a Mantic Zombie.
  25. I found a heck of a bargain on the bay and got a bunch of Hero Clix minis which included multiples of several. Of course, this becomes an excuse for conversions! I had three minis of what I think is an Amazon character named Lorelei. I'll be keeping one as is, making one into a barbarian with a massive sword strapped to her back, and this one is going to be either a really good sultry caster type or possibly a woman of the evening or maybe just a barmaid to give me more NPC options. Here we see side-by-side the original with my converted mini showing lots of GS where things were changed.
