  1. So I needed a skull for something I was working on and with much regret and apologies, I lopped off the head of one of my Bones Skeleton Axemen. I was actually very upset that I had to behead one of my friends. I was in the Google hangout at the time and TGP suggested that I replace his head with a pumpkin. I thought it was a great idea and I just so happened to have a couple of 02992 jack-o-lanterns and pumpkins already primed and mostly basecoated from back in October when I did my Halloween diorama. I pinned his pumpkin head and also pinned him to the base because he's made of Bones and the
  2. 45-ton Battlemech Phoenix Hawk Command Conversion, Yellow/Maroon Paint Scheme I will take better pics later. Vallejo Japanese Uniform, Reaper Maroon Red, Reaper Red Shadow, Scale Color Thrash Metal, and Scale Color Black Metal.
  3. I really liked this dwarf ever since I saw him in the Kickstarter art. Only problem was, why was he wielding a sword? Dwarves should use axes and hammers obviously. So I decided to do a conversion on him. Past that I decided he might be a good candidate for some of the scibor basing bits I had wanted to use. I selected a good face for part of a fallen statue and then wanted to sculpt a column to the other side of it. The part I sculpted didn't turn out as nice as I wanted, but I think it gets the effect across. Anyways, hope you enjoy, comments and criticism always welcome!
  4. Originally she was just a test case for OSL off the lantern and spear blade. I then tried using some interference paints to see if they'd work better, and, well... they took over the piece. So dynamic lighting yes, OSL not really. But it's interesting how with interference paints, you can paint highlights that only show up when light strikes them from a specific angle, usually roughly back towards the light source, which for minis, tends to be just above the viewing position. Also of note, my camera was going insane trying to photograph this. I don't think it likes light reflecting off
  5. For those of you who have been following along with my Frostgrave Campaign (See:Frostgrave Game Four); you'll know that in the last game my Illusionist Apprentice was killed. I like whenever possible to actually use new figures to replace those killed, or promoted; but as I pawed through my Bones stash I became aware that I had no female wizard figures suitably attired for exploring a frozen ruined city. Most of them wear very skimpy, drapey, outfits. So, when I came across the Highland Heroine figure in her nice warm-looking layered outfit, I thought that perhaps she would make a good wiza
  6. Another great miniature from brigade miniatures, this one is called simply survivor 2, I added a plastic chain sword for some added oomph on the table and the pommel was from an unknown piece of plastic in the bits box. Hope you like and please comment ;)
  7. Well, after a few minor touch-ups, heeeeeeere's Bob! Reaper MSP acrylics over Floquil Gray Model Railroad Primer. WIP thread is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68446-large-stitch-golem-project/ Questions and Comments are welcomed. Glen
  8. i start from this excellent Minotaur : to get this fighting monster, angry and very furious ! The greeks are Foundry ones : A Spartan at rest (now as a victim of a Minotaur's strong blow), a dead light infantry (crush under the Minotaur's foot) and a light pestast (held by the arm) Hope you'll like this action.
  9. This is a mild conversion of Reaper's Large Stitch Golem. The main piece is resin with a separately cast white metal left arm with a long, pointed weapon. The piece is about 1.75 inches (43mm) tall and is rather portly. Sections of the piece are sculpted with a loosely woven material that reminds me of burlap, so that's what I'm going with. The rest of the piece is covered with a smooth material that could be cloth or tanned leather, maybe even bare skin. It's anybody's call, I suppose, but I'm going with tanned leather. In keeping with the 'stitch' theme, the 'eyes' are two different sized bu
  10. Meet Gnancy the Gnoll. A friend of mine had the idea of a gnoll character who was considered too beautiful to live among the gnolls (their patron goddess Lamashtu exalts deformity and ugliness). So she left the gnolls to pursue a life among humans, and became a paladin of Sarenrae - pathfinder's neutral-good sun deity. It was so delightfully incongruous, I had to paint her! I started with the bones gnoll warrior, but did a lot of converting. I mended the tattered kilt, and added a sunburst image to the belt buckle. I replaced the mace with a scratch-built scimitar, which is Sarenrae
  11. It was normally deathly quiet at St. Lascivious'...well it was a graveyard after all. There were the normal night noises, hoots, moans, groans, muted conversations that played at the edges of awareness, & the occasional blood curdling scream, but one got used to that sort of thing once you'd been here awhile...AND Fred had been here a long time. So the flap on wings and a descending aura of shimmering light caught his attention. "Oh my gracious, it's a bleeding angel!"...and it was. She's been pouting on my work table for awhile; & I haven't added anything new to The Grave
  12. So, I was trying to get all of the core iconic characters for Pathfinder as I often GM at cons and use the pregens for new players. However, I could not find Kyra in Bones without paying about 4x her usual cost on the bay. Therefore, I got creative. I got a copy of the Isabeau Laroche mini and cut away her sword and shield and then cut her right hand off and turned it over. I put some armature wire in place for her scimitar and holy symbol, then went to town with some Green Stuff. A speed paint later, I had a fairly passable Kyra. Hope you enjoy her as much as I do!
  13. When I had first seen the Darkrasp figure, back when my Bones 1 Kickstarter had arrived, something about its appearance read "Santa Claus" to me; especially with the long "list" he holds in his left hand, obviously containing the names of those who'd been naughty. And I had the thought of some day converting it into a Santa Claus figure. Well, with the onset of my Frostgrave addiction, that day finally rolled around; as I decided I wanted to make a Santa themed warband, and I selected this fellow to lead it. And, given the season of the year, it seemed the perfect time to paint him. I
  14. I painted up Mi-Sher this week. She is supposed to be wielding two swords, but I had borrowed her second sword a while back to use with my Chronomancer Apprentice, Sascha Dubois; and the figure had been sitting around my painting table off-handedly until I realized recently that with just one sword she would make a good Thug for Frostgrave. So, I found a suitable replacement hand from my bits box of hard plastic figure parts, and after prepping the figure, I super-glued the hand in place. I did a standard table-top job on her, and used a 10mm figure, painted up and mounted like a fa
  15. The first of many to soon be posted, a very Conanesque Barbarian, Traeg. He's a Reaper piece, but years of being kept in a box underneath a bed lead to a hand transplant (from a Dwarf Wars Nordvolk, if memory serves)
  16. Since this mini is my first attempt at modifying one, and since I hope to use slightly more advanced painting techniques on this, it's probably time to do a proper 'one mini/theme/whatever' thread for it. Anyway, Finari is a pretty badass woman, but I think she can be improved a bit... The first I did was to get rid of the broccoli base. It's boring, and I think I have something better. Now the second thing I did was to hollow out between her cak and the shield, to make it look a bit more natural. Can anyone see what else I have done?
  17. Late last year, I decided I wanted to do a Santa themed Frostgrave warband after completing a vary Santa-like wizard figure, which you can see here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66121-darkrasp-evil-priest-77151-to-santa-claus-conversion/ While I have slowly been collecting the figures I wanted to use as the soldiers for this warband for a while now, I finally started painting them this past week. The first I painted up is Yukon Cornelius, Treasure Hunter. Yukon Cornelius is a character from the classic stop-motion children's Christmas TV special, Rudoph the Red Nosed Rein
  18. My first finished piece with some minor OSL, made as a gift for a very dear friend of mine. The head of this otherwise beautiful bones miniature had some casting flaws, so I swapped her head with a cast copy of a Kingdom Death Sunstalker dancer Pin-up miniature. Any critique is very much appreciated, since I just want to learn and keep getting better with miniature painting.
  19. So, for my Frostgrave chronomancer warband (which I featured in the WIP thread), I decided I wanted an Egyptian warrior and a Mongolian warrior. However, I couldn't find such figures just readily available and didn't want to wait for shipping. Instead, I got a 3 pack of Reaper Bones skeletal spearmen and made one into the Egyptian. For the Mongolian archer, I used a mini I have had for years that I don't think is actually supposed to be Legolas, but really looks like that sort of elven idea. A decent amount of Green Stuff and paint were involved :=) C&C always welcome!
  20. Hi every one, I play this game called Heroscape, its been discontinued since 2005 but there is still a decent following over at heroscapers.com A while back we started talking about and started a few threads on conversions and terrain that could be used. The only differences is that Heroscape is played on hexes and most of the figures are around 28mm tall. When converting it is really easy to just skip the hex part of the tutorial and apply this for any miniature game. With a bunch of pirate figures in the reaper line plus the pathfinder pirate and water themed figures, I thought it would
  21. I wanted to add a couple properly snow based necromancers to my Frostgrave collection, so I looked through the Bones I "Necromancers" set and selected two, one of which was the Ghoul Queen. I figure she will make a good apprentice for my Necromancer warband. As I studied the figure, I was bothered by the fact that she seemed to be wearing two scabbards, one with a sword and the other empty. I thought the empty scabbard looked kind of useless and redundant, so decided I would reduce her scabbard count down to one, and make it one that had a sword in it. Now, the easy thing to do would
  22. This past weekend, I finished up the four Orc Berserker figures from the Bones 1 "Orcpocalypse" add-on set. I tried to do minor conversions to each figure to give them a little individuality. Armed with my hobby knife and some Gorilla superglue gel, I had fun cutting, repositioning and gluing the orcs to make each one look a little different. Looking at the row below; The first orc is the untouched basic figure. The second has had his forearms flipped around and repositioned opposite of the way they were, so the sword now is in front of the orc. I also replaced the sword blade with one fr
  23. Once upon a time at PAX, when Bones were still new I asked about having miniatures come in separate pieces as that would make them easier to paint, but the answer I got was they wanted the consumer to be able to take it straight out of the package and onto the playmat. Which, fair enough, that made sense, and it's not like it was that hard to get around. I've been sitting on a pile of KS miniatures from the first two Kickstarters (as well as impulse buying a few other Bones along the way), but having taken a look at them it seemed like they weren't gonna be an issue to paint years later when I
  24. I needed a modern looking female adventurer with a whip and a knife for a monster hunter rpg session, and I had Elsabeth sitting nearby. I de-vampified her and did a lot of cutting and filing and filling to come up with this.
