  1. I only saw one thread about crackle paste when I searched these forums. So, I’m going to share how it’s going for me. I started with washed and dried 1” and 2” Reaper Bases. I put this garbage on a 2 inch base first. Don’t buy it. I got it at Hobby Lobby at the time because they were out of Folk Art. To be clear, this is Crackle Medium. It is meant to be painted on a primed or rough surface I guess, and painted thin. I put it on kind of thick. It didn’t crackle at all! So, I got a tub of this stuff on Amazon.
  2. Taking a hiatus on the Mocking Beast. Trying to gain some victory in numbers on my Bonesium Horde. I have completed the beetle swarms, spider swarms, and skeletons without WIP. I’m going to do the goblins now. I plan two batches: one yellow/ochre, and the other tangerine. Some nice “non-Greenskins.” Several of these required boiling. Some are still leaning. The spears are straighter. One of these was the beneficiary of a weapon swap. I had given Danar, Male Assassin 77030 his shield for a spiked shield. In return, we have a dual wielding goblin!
  3. Since the Eye Beasts are making good progress, getting the next model ready. A suitable Player Character model. Turanil, Male Elf Paladin. The plan is white and red. I’m hoping the peacock comes across as a Phoenix.
  4. This one is next in line. He needs a better base. This is a standard Reaper 1 inch base. And a sheet of embossed styrene cobblestone, for model railroading. I superglued it on, trimmed around it with an X-Acto, then sanded it down to 800 grit. Any gap left is going to get the Brush On Sealer treatment to deal with the seam. After this I just superglued the Mocking Beast on. No pin.
  5. I started this to be the BBEG for Dragon's Demand. I really enjoyed painting it. This is my first full dragon miniature painted. I spent a lot of time on it, and I'm pleased with the outcome. I hope you like it. This was my first time using Birch seed pod debris as leaves, and I think they look good. Here is the link to the WIP: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/92764-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-11-shadow-dragon/&tab=comments#comment-1965291 C&C welcome.
  6. Here is my pewter version of the Eyebeast. This is my project going model-by-model down the Bones I Kickstarter rewards images through all my models, and logging them as WIP. And bringing along any pewter versions I have for the ride. WIP Here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/95874-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-13-eye-beast/ These guys are very rewarding and great practice for eyes. I coated the eyes and mouth with brush on gloss varnish to give it that live, wet, salivating look. Enjoy. C/C Welcome.
  7. Here is my BONES version of the Eye Beast. This is my project going model-by-model down the Bones I Kickstarter rewards images through all my models, and logging them as WIP. And bringing along any pewter versions I have for the ride. WIP Here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/95874-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-13-eye-beast/ These guys are very rewarding and great practice for eyes. I coated the eyes and mouth with brush on gloss varnish to give it that live, wet, salivating look. Enjoy. C/C Welcome.
  8. This is my most ambitious attempt to date. A mini-campaign I’m running some people through calls for many kobolds of varying colors and classes. I had 12 Kobolds from Bones I, the 4 pack in metal that those were based off of (03064), the metal Leader and Sorcerer (03024), the 12 awesome new kobolds from Bones 4, and a 7 pack (I may have gotten a freebie, I thought I bought a six pack) of kobolds from the Ral Partha TSR Official D&D 2nd Edition line, stamped 1989. That’s a whopping 37 figures. I want to paint tribes from all 5 chromatic factions, and want to have as few duplicate poses
  9. Here was my entry for the 16th quarterly Reaper Facebook Contest. I was honored to receive an honorable mention. There were dozens of fantastic entries. I wanted to try a white dragon coloration. I have Deathsleet in my queue, so this is a test run. His scales are Dragon White. The ventral surfaces are more of a bone color with Creamy Ivory and Linen White, with Sepia Wash. His dagger is a green NMM. His eyes are gem-like, not lizard pupils. The skirt completes the “triangle of interest” green color. I rebased him on a Micro Arts 30mm Sewer base. I h
  10. Another addition from WIP completion. WIP Link here. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/91014-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-7-kagunk/&tab=comments#comment-1931906 I was going for an Ice Ogre vibe here. Being that he is likely surrounded by frost-resistant and fire-vulnerable enemies, I wanted his shield to be a fire weapon. This has always been a favorite model of mine from BONES I. I hope you like it as much as I do.
  11. This is one of the warband of Orcs from Bones I. I though all of these had a lot of character. I painted them up as light grey-green based on some of the Dungeon Dwellers paint sets. The wood grain inside the shield is freehand. Here is the WIP for the whole group. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93235-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-12-orcpocalypse/ If I had it to do over again I’d change the fur colors, because they blend in with the chainmail. Here are the group shots. Enjoy.
  12. Here is the big boss of the Bones I Orc Warband. With all of these Orcs they are shadowed with a purple color. I added some green freckles/sun spots for a little interest. For his shield trophies, I included some skin tones and hair colors that could represent elf, dwarf, human, goblin and undead. The wood planks and boards on the shield are freehand. Kavorgh got a little extra love with the bloodstain on the axe. WIP here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93235-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-12-orcpocalypse/
  13. Here is another of the Orc Warband from Bones I. He had a very bent sword, so I swapped it with one from the Bones III weapon sprue. WIP Here. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93235-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-12-orcpocalypse/ And the group shot. Enjoy.
  14. Here is another of the Orc Warband from Bones I. WIP Here. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93235-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-12-orcpocalypse/ And the group shot. Enjoy.
  15. Linked photos due to nudity. This was a quick paint job trying out the Golden Skin triad. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/gv67iiqzdbmkgnp/AABkN4rQVefNZkapQ8dJLibna?dl=0 I’ve never tried Dropbox before, let me know if it doesn’t work right.
  16. Here are some harpies. Linked due to nudity. When possible, I’ll try to paint Metal along with Bones if I have the same mini in both media. I found these a little odd, with feathers on part of the wings but serpent scales on the thighs. So I went chromatic dragon colors. The feet/claws were based off some raptor pictures off the net. Also tried three different skin tones: African, tanned, and ruddy, with correspondingly ?appropriate hair colors? I gave two beach bases and one a rocky base. Enjoy. FYI black scales with white feathers is BONES, and the
  17. Here is another of the orc warband from Bones I. His spear was too floppy, so his spear tip is a weapon swap from the weapon sprue from Bones III. WIP link: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93235-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-12-orcpocalypse/ And the group shot. Enjoy.
  18. Here is another of the Orc Warband from Bones I. WIP link here. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93235-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-12-orcpocalypse/ Here is the group shot. Enjoy.
  19. I take pics during WIP. But I tend to take a year off between posts to Show Off. Link to WIP to follow. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/88595-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-5-deladrin/&tab=comments#comment-1884050 My model had a miscast to the right side of her face, so I just left it as an exaggerated shadow. I went with an idea for eventually having a similar ranger-y type with seasonal Camo on her cloak, reversible with black on the inside. This is the first. Autumn. The phone camera washes out my colors a fair bit, so I tried my best to true-up wit
  20. I’ve been going through BONES I mostly in order, doing several WIP. This was the next. I wanted to try to improve on my OSL so he got a green magic glowing gem. Still not great, but the idea comes across. Link to WIP. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/92763-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-10-satheras/&tab=comments#comment-1965284 I didn’t bother trying to paint his eyes due to the extreme shadowing...
  21. Another that started as a WIP. I was going for an East Indian skin tone. I find this figure curious for a mage, with armor and a spear. And strange scalloped shapes on her back. The color washes out the difference between the orange and yellow colors, sadly. WIP Link below. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/90829-darcstaar-vs-bones-1-episode-6-devona/&tab=comments#comment-1928602 Enjoy.
  22. Another quick and dirty. No blending in the skin/fur. A night’s work showing my son about painting fire. No WIP. Sorry the face close up is out of focus.
  23. Such a fun idea for a mini! But then you have to paint all the dragon scales. I was going for a more Asian skin tone. I tried to speed through this one since her sword was so bent. WIP link below. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/92275-darcstaar-vs-bones-i-ep-8-janan-female-dragonslayer/&tab=comments#comment-1955669 Enjoy.
  24. I’ve been working on this dragon too. It has some serious lean. In order to try to address this, I cut the front feet away from the back feet, and from each other. I was hoping gluing the to the base separately would do it, but no! Still serious lean. I decided to pin the feet to the base, but as I played with it, realized the back feet, left and right front feet would all have to be at different levels. It’s now straight and erect. I had to chop and reposition the tail for this, or else the tip dipped below the level of the base. Now I need to sculpt gree
