  1. So finally have finish the third elf in my little Tom Meier trilogy of the All American elves. Just got this one done and based, and reasonably happy with him. Kind of took forever to choose colors and they are a bit more lively than the other two I did.
  2. So this past week I painted Elquin, High Elf Adventurer, from the Bones I Heroes Set. As I looked at this figure and considered how to paint him, there was something about his outfit that struck me as very Napoleonic in appearance. So, I got the idea to paint him in the style of a French soldier from that era. In general I'm pleased with how he came out, especially the face. And I think the Napoleonic look suits him well. For the full painting write-up, please see my Bones painting blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/08/elquin-high-elf-adventurer-figure-166.html
  3. So just finished this one this evening, getting the grass glued on to the base. I think this one looks better in person than it does in the photo just because of how the photo actually came out, but I've been whining a lot about my photography lately, so it's probably just me. Anyway, tried to keep kind of a cool but basic color palette, ended up imitating the Estonian flag quite a lot. This one is from the same series as the other elf I just finished, sculpted by Tom Meier, in the eighties at some point, need to look at the base to check. Anyhow, enjoy!
  4. So here's an elf that I picked up that was originally from a series I think from the nineties over at Ral Partha, called the All American series. Not sure why it was called that. I'm not sure if it's because all the sculptors were American (but I don't think Bob Olley is, so that idea probably doesn't hold water) or if it's because they were physically sculpted in the U.S. of A., or for some other mysterious reason. Anyhoos, here is one of them, an elf with some slightly in my mind Oriental armor on, short sword and a bow. I've got a couple more of these that I'm working on hopefully in the
  5. With my collection being rather "large" these days, I've been trying to knock out tabletop quality work, and have shown a few here lately. Was time to slow down and enjoy the process more. I wouldn't say these are contest level, but hopefully better than tabletop! Anyone else find themselves speed painting far too often? (Shaman needs some basing still.) Mini numbers for those that might want to paint one of these themselves 02711 elf 14479 dryad 2805 shaman
  6. H'okay, hopefully I've done all this right *worry worry* I'm new to Reaper and to minis in general, and I ended up here on a mission to put together a figure for my Pathfinder character (also super new to Pathfinder). So here's what I've got for her =] I used the legs from the Aries figure as my starting point, then fished out an elven torso and pair of arms from a box of bits my friend has from Games Workshop. Her head is a leftover from an Avatars of War figure he got for his Pathfinder character. Her tail is an offcut from a Games Workshop banner thing. Her lower torso is scu
  7. This is my first Reaper Mini that I have painted to post on the forums. I have recently found the forums here, and am very interested in doing the paint exchanges, but I did want to throw something up so the organizers and other members knew that I can throw some paint on a mini and not have it look like total jank. I am interested to hear what everyone thinks. This was also my first Bones mini that I have done, and did as suggested and not primed it. First coat was a bit tricky but after that everything went pretty typical.
  8. I drew Sirithiliel as my exchange partner (and by coincidence, I was her partner as well). She wanted a druid or a monk, and I had been wanting to paint Tobias here for a while. He's got a very dynamic pose, and actually is kind of out-of-place among other Reaper minis, IMO. The sculpt is interesting and quite cool, but also kind of weird after working with it for a while - how did his cloak get out in front of him? where's the other half of his bow? what's that green thing next to the quiver? I think the sculptor might be the guy behind Tin Man Miniatures - same name, at least.
  9. My partner for the summer exchange was Flamehawke. She said she plays mostly mages so I choose Nonalla for her. She is holding a book, and I like books The background diorama is scratch build from plastic card with some chests from my bits-box. I made the base for the mini detachable, so that it can be used in a game. The base is magnetic. Flamehawke gave me some hints so I kept the colors light for the mini. Added a circle of Nordic runes and a dragon familiar. The runes spell Flamehawke (but maybe I forgot the last 'e' )
  10. I've really been on an OSL (Object Source Lighting) kick lately. Here's another go with the Bones version of Alastriel.
  11. Heeeeeey. Been away for a while. Back with different minis, same bad painting. First up is Matt Gubser's Dalyn Talas, Elven Sword Mage. Though this mini was cool (if a little silly) when I saw it; kind of was bummed about the lack of hair detail when I got it in hand. But a lot of that's just my being a bad painter. He was still fun to do up. Trying out a new background for these. Hopefully makes the pictures a little less awful. Thanks for looking.
  12. Forgive the poor quality of this; I'm both getting back to painting after a bit away and am taking pictures with my cell, so they aren't going to be super-pretty. Not sure how I would make them look less terrible with what I have available, but I would happily accept pointers! Anyway, this is my attempt at Nonalla. I really like this sculpt, but I like less what I did with it. Very monotone. I may strip and repaint her and try making her more colorful.
  13. This is Bones version of Nienna, Elf Ranger. Most ranger figures I've seen are painted green or brown, but I thought I'd go for an autumn theme and paint her in red/orange/yellow/brown. I started by painting the cloak a rusty burghundy, including all the highlights and shadows as if that was the final paint job. Then I started painting a freehand patchwork leaf pattern. Each leaf is painted individually, which takes a devilishly long time, I've come to discover. This is going to take a long time to finish. And right now she's at one of the those early stages when I can't stand what I'
  14. Hi Gang! It's late/early but I got so caught up in painting, I decided I needed to rejoin the WIP forum It's been too long! I hit one of those "painting zen" places and picked up a Shelf of Shame mini that I started to paint last year, but when I saw Cash's amazing thread in May 2014, I got discouraged so I "temporarily" put him aside. One year later, I'm ready to paint Noreth! I decided his long jacket would be a royal blue and while I waited for the base coat to dry, I worked on his face. Fast forward after an hour of obsessive "...if I just fix this little detail" and I looked up
  15. Original paint scheme by Sean Guzman. Not even a close rendition, but I just loved that look. Formerly the mini for an in-game PC... ultimately killed by winter wolves in Icewind Dale.
  16. This one was an NPC in my game up in Icewind Dale. She was a Auril the Frostmaiden worshiping witch (hence the Auril symbol on her spellbook) She caused all kinds of trouble, causing snowstorms, controlling yeti, polar bears and a multitude of other nasties... including a tribe of barbarians...
  17. Here is another one. I have lots. Just not the best photos. The minis themselves are now where we play and not here at home with me. They have since been based. They are game minis.
  18. Here is the TOTALLY AWESOME figure I received as part of the 2015 Spring figure exchange! Flamehawke did an amazing job painting and basing this incredible figure! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  19. Last time I was at the local gaming shop, my girlfriend tagged along. She's been looking over my shoulder a lot when I fade off into fantasy-land; and when she found some "cute" miniatures, she decided she wanted to learn how to paint them. So here is the result of the first sessions. Just simple painting mechanics for the table top. I was impressed at least. :) And of course: Showing interest in my nerdy hobbies get her some extra stars. ;) She painted the one on the left. Sort of mimicking what I did on the right.
  20. I painted this mini for Kharsin for the Spring Exchange. The druid's falcon reported something strange in the woods. When he went to check, he found a small kitty who started purring at him. I forgot to take a shot from above to show the kitty. The kitty is one of Edna's (50235). This is probably the 3rd or 4th base I've done. I'm actually happy with it, unlike my other attempts. The top stone is the base the elf comes with. I used cork to give him some height. The moss was done using blister-foam. Grass is from Army painter. The base itself is the new Reaper 1" ones.
  21. Last year at Reapercon, I took an excellent NMM course taught by the irrepressible Aaron Lovejoy. He had us paint NMM gold on this lady's shield and oh my god was I terrible. This year I picked up another copy so I could try the shield and see how I did. I actually did an okay job on it about four or five months ago but only finished the shield. Three months ago I decided I had progressed in my skill and thought I could improve on it by adding some contrast. NOPE. I couldn't recreate the colors accurately which threw the blend off, at which point I moved on to other things. Well, w
  22. Judging from the Otherworld Forums wave two of the IndieGoGo campaign is about to be delivered. So I made an effort to finish my last miniatures of wave one. First we have the Elf Male Fighter/Magic User. Secondly the Half Orc Assassin.
  23. Merisiel from Reaper. The new(er) Merisiel sculpt painted up for a DnD5 campaign I'm playing in. I'm hoping we'll make the switch to using this one as I like the paintjob better than the one I did on the old sculpt.
  24. Had some time at work to slap paint on Arthrand here. I'm trying to subtly add highlights to his cloak. I've not had much practice with it yet. I know I need to push them a bit higher still though. Also sorry for the sideways image. I'm uploading from my phone and it's gone wonky. I don't know how to fix it!
  25. This is my first completed figure and my first Bones figure. I've worked on it for weeks, on and off, to use it in a tabletop game. I was attempting to achieve an inner glow from the crystal, but I don't think it worked out as well as it I was hoping. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
