  1. Swimming holes can be dangerous places in Rokugan. Ive always liked painting elementals, and rokugan has many. The Clan War elementals definitely have a more sinister feel which belie their wicked demonic nature. painting water always poses a challenge. I went with a more green algae pool look with this one, to help differentiate it from my other water elementals that have a bluer hue. It was a nice color palate to work with and I had a lot of fun painting the highlights.
  2. So, although not a Reaper Figure, I did paint him with my new Bones Master Series paints, and they are awesome! Primarily I have been painting Bones minis recently, with few metals thrown in here or there. I got these new paints, and I am super excited about it. This particular piece was done as part of a set (the Scrunt being there as well) for a cursed forest that my players are going to journeying into. I used some static grass to cover the moss on the fig, as I thought it added a little something. As always, C&C is welcomed! Enjoy! Oops.. forgot to post the pictures... CAH
  3. I've been trying to tick off some of those D&D Monster Manual entries, and painted up a bunch of large beasties. I kind of speed-painted these (spent a bit more time on the Oni), but am pretty happy with how they turned out. Feels good to produce stuff for the collection. The Brass Bull is from Reaper of course (the Bones variant), the four-armed ape is from Bombshell Miniatures, whilst the Iron Golem, Stone Elemental and Fire Elemental are all from Otherworld Miniatures and the Oni is from Zenit Miniatures. They're all really cool minis I think. Anyway, hope you like em!
  4. Attack of the speed painting.. Only took me 2.5 hours x.x Not so speedy. My favorite part is his booty!
  5. So - this is my first time "painting fire". It's not bad, but it's not good either... Advice for how to do it better next time? PS. I know that this figure is supposed to be a water creature, but I "made it work" to be a fire elemental lady who's an "ash mage" of sorts or whatever...
  6. I saw this guy in the store awhile back, and I had to paint him. But he seemed too big to be Large, so I decided he had to be Huge. Being Huge (and top-heavy), I also figured that he needed a bigger base to reflect a 15x15' Space. In retrospect, I wish I'd done him with a circular base to have a little less negative space, but overall it was a fun flock experiment. :-)
  7. This is an earth elemental mini of unknown origin. I've had him for years, but never thought about painting him (or any of them really) until recently. I like how he came out, except that the varnish made him really pale. D'oh! The original base for the mini was really tiny, making him prone to tipping over in gameplay, so I wanted a bigger one that was heavier and reflected his 10x10 space. This one is mostly glue and rocks, so it seems plenty sturdy. :-)
  8. Ever since I painted the Large Earth Elemental I thought about doing one up as a Magma Elemental. Pretty happy with attempt. Decided to remove the dinosaur bone from shoulder and make more volcanic. As well as make little volcanos on its back and finger tips.
  9. A couple more firsts on this guy with the gems and the base. And I had a lot of fun painting him. Enjoy edit: So I have to admit I got a little exited playing with new toys last night and rushed the picture process. But I just wasn't happy with how dark they turned out. After another read through of the Miniatures Photography 101 I think I did a much better job today. Now You can see all the detail good and bad!
  10. Hi, I'm continuing to paint my "Forces of Nature" army for Kings of War. Here is the Greater Earth Elemental. The sculpt was OK, but I found it to be too "Rock-ish". (I want an Earth Elemental, not a Stone Golem). So I sprinkled a bit of "dirt flock" to make it look more natural and earthy. I let you judge if you think it worked. For the color scheme, I kept it pretty light as i want it to look more good than evil... (though the rule books states "Forces of Nature" are Neutral...) I also spent some time modeling the base (which I don't usually do for my armies), to keep with the them
  11. I'm pretty happy with my Wall of Ice. The WIP is here. I tried doing the highlighting 2 different ways - I described it in the WIP - but I don't remember which is which anymore. I used a variety of inks - I'll have to get back about which ones exactly, I don't remember any more - to try and create some variety in the thickness of the ice, but it didn't work out so well. Edging was done with Reaper Ghost White. There's some happy accidents in there too where the brush slipped. If anyone's wondering, yes this is still see-through.
  12. Love this earth elemental from Shieldwolf. Just wish he was looking forward instead of down, since you can hardly see his face.
  13. For 2/5..my first attempt at painting blue, translucent water...it works for tabletop, I think, but not much beyond that.
  14. Hey everyone. Here is a recent completion. It's been on the shelf of shame for over a year. Its on a 2 inch large square base, and it's a heavy lump of pewter! I originally primed with Tamiya White Fine Surface Primer, thinking it would help. It seemed to come out VERY hydrophobic. Then I proceeded to paint the whole thing with Shadowed Stone. What a nightmare. The paint wanted to bead up with any degree of thinning. It took about 4-6 coats to cover. I went up to Pure White through the Stone Grey Triad using 50/50 increments. Each was about 3 layers per mix to get the blending. So,
  15. Quick painted bones fire elemental, mounted on a custom LED base. Been getting more and more into finding ways to add light to miniatures and the clear Bones minis are simple but the results are great. In a darker area the entire mini lights up well! IMG_0177.MOV
  16. While the Kickstarter was winding down I figured I needed to get to work on some Bones minis. Here are a pair I consider tabletop quality, not competition but hopefully not too shabby. Playing with the wet and dry looks for finishing here as well. So many Bones to paint before August 2016!
  17. OK Everyone. I'm so jazzed by the minis SGHawkins09 sent me for the 2015 summer exchange. This was the Bone Earth Elemental 77185 painted in an ice/snow theme, based as such. It might be a great proxy for a certain Disney Movie all the kids know by heart these days... She fogot to take pictures, so I did her the honor. She should be very proud of her work. I love how in certain shots/angles, the snow effect looks like it's melting! This figure and its partner have taken up front positions on the Shelf of HonorTM
  18. My first time painting something in Translucent bones! I attempted to go for 'breaking waves' sort of look while trying to maintain transparency Took two pairs of photos, on black and on white backgrounds
  19. I recently completed some 10mm fantasy figures for my "Bear Yourselves Valiantly" armies; which included a Lizardman Hero, a Cursed Knight Leader, and a Fire Elemental. I had a leftover Lizardman figure (I believe he was made by A.I.M.) and thought that he bared a striking resemblance to a certain purple TV Dinosaur, so couldn't help but paint him up as the great Lizardman Hero, B'uar-Nee! Recently I painted three 28mm Barrow Wardens from Reaper's Bones line, and was really pleased with the results (Which you can see here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62404-barrow
  20. Another old Mage Knight figure that I have repainted. I forget what it's supposed to be, but I think it'll work well for Wood Golem, Young Treant, or generic woodland/nature spirit. Thanks for looking.
  21. Here was a quick paint of the Bones Wood Elemental from the familiars 2. It was about an hour and half on the Wood elemental and about (off and on) an hour for the base. So a total of 2.5 hours (A record for me).
  22. I was photographing something else yesterday. The something else ended badly. I was documenting it. Anyway, the Fire Elemental was nearby and the lighting setup looked promising so I let the camera have a try even though the LFE is notoriously hard to photograph. The Raw Image My phone has a small app on it from Adobe, and it has a selection of preset "effects" filters it can apply. I tried several, saved a few that looked fiery. The Filter That Looked Like Lava A Kind of Spot Lighting? Similar to Above But Darker Hope these are at least fun to look at
  23. I rebased the lesser elementals (Reaper 2538) that I painted up several years ago. While doing so, I also gave them a touch-up paint job, the fire elemental got his flames reversed in several places for instance.

  24. I bought Tamiya clear yellow, green and orange and played around with the female bones fire elemental (77083) and the bones grave wraith (77097). The yellow/orange hardly shows at all on the red bones, but the green Tamiya clear turned out ok on the green wraith.

  25. Somewhere someone on this board used the clear tamiya paints on their translucent bones, I can't remember who it was offhand, and I tried it and have painted all of my translucent bones with this paint first. I though I'd show the difference that this paint makes on these figures by painting two fire elementals. I slathered Tamiya clear red onto both figures generously. Unlike most basecoats, a thick coat won't obscure details like regular paint would, it just take longer to dry. A word of warning, while this paint does clean up with water, it is still a solvent based paint and does hav
