  1. With the Spring Exchange winding down, its time to start thinking about the next exchange. As before, there will be about two months of painting time. Signups will run from May 1st to May 10th, with assignments going around the 15th. Miniatures should be mailed by July 15th. I'm posting from ReaperCon, so I wont be around the next few days to answer questions, but I'll answer when I get back. If you've never done an exchange before, how it works is like this: Everyone who is interested PMs me with the questionnaire below filled out. I then match you with a person whom you will paint
  2. For my exchange partner this time around I was assigned Traxia. So if you are reading this and haven't opened your package, stop now! When going through Traxia's answers to the questionnaire, the moment I saw "Chronoscope" I knew what I was going to paint even though it's not made by Reaper. Maow makes affordable resin minis in limited runs and I just so happen to have a few of them. One in particular is the awesome steampunk figure "Johnny Rocket." There were only 400 made, but if you want one there are still a few left out in the wild. Better hurry though, before another forumite g
  3. So, I had a bad time this last Minis Exchange on the Reaper boards. I got a partner that I had no clue what to paint for them! I had no ideas, no inspiration, no anything really! It took until the week before we were supposed to send by for me to have an Idea. So here it is... So first off, I should explain a bit about this mini. Female Bugbears are not common miniatures to paint, so i had to have a reason for her to be useful for my Partner. So, I decided on this one due to Talae's interest in the Eberron D&D setting and that he said "Not All Monsters are Bad Guys". So, I though, well
  4. Well, everyone. Arc724 made the following comment in his guidelines for his exchange mini: "I'm starting a Star Wars RPG Campaign, so if you can paint me a Sith or Jedi, you'd have a new friend forever." Challenge Accepted... As soon as I saw this figure years ago I thought "He'd make a great Sith." Now I had the chance to prove it. I call him Bel'Rheol. That was a jumble of the letters in Hellbore (which is the only name on the blister card). He has a weird spiral hat, so I Ret-Conned that to make him a Twi'Lek. In reading on the Wookieepedia, I came across a Headmistress at a S
  5. My exchange partner this time was Thes Hunter. I decided on the awesome Battle Troll. I figured it should give her players a good scare! Here are my less than awesome photos (I snagged a few just before packing it, at work, on the deadline...) Hopefully Thes will post some much better photos at some point
  6. I painted this couatl for OneBoot for the Summer Exchange. The couatl comes with a 1" square base, but I upgraded it to a 2" round base to make it the appropriate size for Pathfinder/D&D. First time doing a jungle base. Someone on the forum mentioned getting plastic plants from Michael's to use their leaves to make plants, so that is what I did.
  7. This was a bonus mini for OneBoot for the Summer Exchange. Painting this little guy was fun.
  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. OK everyone. Not sure how best to post WIP after the fact. So, I'm going to post a few pictures at a time. I was paired to paint for Arc724 in the Summer 2015 Exchange. This was my first time, and his. Here's the link to the Show Off. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63001-02782-warl-hellbore-assassin-exchange-mini-for-2015-summer/ And here is the Fiction: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63011-from-the-personal-holocron-of-master-bel’rheol-force-assassin/ Here are the starting supplies: A few angles of the mini. The base is a 30mm

  11. 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
  12. My exchange partner this time around was Teskeria. She requested unicorns, pegasus, dragons, alicorns, mages, rogues, or swordmasters. I was fresh out of unicorns and pegasus, and I was pretty sure I didn't have any alicorns but I looked up what they were just to be sure. While I did have some PC characters from the Bones kickstarters, they are pretty ubiquitous around the forum and I didn't want to give away something my partner already had. What about a mount you say? Well as it happens Reaper does in fact make one. Barros & Tempest actually comes with a choice of three differe
  13. This is the chatter thread for the 2015 Spring Miniature Exchange. No sign-ups here, send me a PM for those. Feel free to talk about anything exchange related here! Remember to post pictures of your awesome miniature when you receive it!
  14. Finished up my last exchange mini!!! I packed it up with Malena, and some other goodies, and I plan on shipping it out tonight! I hope my partner likes it! My partner said that they usually use their minis for D&D, so I only went for a tabletop quality. Let me know what you think!! C&C is always welcome!
  15. So, I got two of these, and my exchange partner (who doesn't know this is for them!!) said they use minis mostly for D&D gameplay. I figured it was a good way to paint up some cloth and work on blending. She has the smallest eyes I have ever painted, so they are not great. :) Working on more blending after this, but at least she's done! C&C always welcome, enjoy!
  16. With Secret Sophie finishing up as a roaring success, I'm happy to announce the Spring Miniature Exchange for 2015. Going forward, I hope to run four exchanges a year. This means that actual painting time will be slightly reduced, but since I think most people use the majority of their time for procrastination this will not cause any problems. Signups for this exchange will run from February 1st to February 10th, with assignments going out by the 15th. Miniatures should be mailed by April 15th, which will allow us to start the summer exchange around May 1st. If you've never done an exchan
  17. It's time for our next forum miniature exchange. If you've never done an exchange before, how it works is like this: Everyone who is interested PMs me with the questionnaire below filled out. I then match you with a person whom you will paint a mini for, and usually a second person whom you will receive a painted mini from (sometimes it's the same person). You have until the deadline to send your mini out (though we tend to be fairly lax about enforcing deadlines; remember it's supposed to be fun!). That's pretty much it, feel free to PM me with questions. So, without further ado... The R
  18. With the successful completion of the Summer Exchange (modulus a few remaining packages), it's time to ramp up for fall! This exchange will be on a slightly tighter timeframe than usual so that we have room for the Secret Sophie gift exchange at the end of the year. Signups will run from September 1 to September 10, with the assignments going out no later than September 15th. You will have two months (not the usual three) to mail your miniature out. If you've never done an exchange before, how it works is like this: Everyone who is interested PMs me with the questionnaire below filled out.
  19. Welcome, everyone, to the 2014 Secret Sophie thread! What is Secret Sophie, you ask? Well, it's a lot like Secret Santa, with a more attractive (albeit more dangerous) delivery person! (For those not in the know, Sophie the Succubus is Reaper's mascot.) This is the time of year for Reaper forumites to give some holiday cheer to each other. Signups will run from November 16th to November 24, with the assignments going out no later than November 27th. This is a tight schedule, but that's okay, because you don't have to paint anything if you don't want to! If you've never done an exc
  20. Kangaroorex got my minis today! It was a lot of fun to paint these minis because we never use sci-fi. Anyways, I'm glad he liked them, I hope y'all do too!
  21. The Encounter at the Ruins Willen looked around, the area overgrown with plants, the once great elven city had fallen into ruin, forgotten beyond all memory. As he approached, glowing blue runes flared to life and upon the landing above the crumbling stairs he saw something gleaming... He moved past the broken column and noticed the brackish water to his right stir. Slowly, he pulled forth his razor sharp blade and climbed up the first two steps when suddenly the surface of the water erupted with an eyestalk, green in color and the eye a baleful yellow and red... ---------------------------
  22. I painted the Bones version of Elquin as part of the Secret Sophie 2014 miniature exchange for Leopardpixie. She says that her favorite colors are pink and black, so they were the starting point for this miniature. I started by airbrushing RMS Cactus Flower, which was eye-wateringly bright. The final result is less so, but let that be a warning to anyone trying to use this color. I had decided to make his jacket black, but realized there's some complex relationship between his jacket and cloak - it actually kind of looks like it's all one garment. I did my best to find good points of s
  23. I wanted to make a thread for the miniature I painted for Fishnjeeps for the Fall Exchange. I had alot of fun painting him and felt he turned out well. Fishnjeeps hoped for a Dwarf miniature with a long beard. After going through my collection of unpainted miniatures I had several to choose from, and like always decided to go to the Game Store just to see what they may have. Normally I would then come home with a few more miniatures just in case my mood changed on what to paint. This time I only came home with one, Reaper Miniatures King Thorgram sculpted by Werner Klocke. When I saw him I th
  24. Tarlen has received his mini, safe and sound, so I can post these pics! I had an absolute blast painting this one up. Tarlen described a pretty wild setting for his current campaign, so I wanted something that would be a bit exotic. He also specified "no horde monsters," so I wanted a creature that could conceivably be an encounter on its own. I decided to go with a gorgon/medusa. Gorgons have long been one of my favorite monsters, and the metal version of this was one of the first monsters I painted, so I was excited to revisit the sculpt. I painted the metal one in fairly drab greens
  25. In the exchange thread it kinda sounded like Siri was challenging me to take better pictures than her. I don't have an actual light box, but today at least I do have the sun (Hello sun, nice of you to finally show up this month), so I snapped a few pics this afternoon. I left them a little larger than I normally do, so I'm sure you'll want to click on the resized images and bring them up in full detail. Thanks Siri! Now I just need to finish up my own exchange mini...
