  1. Inspired by the weekend question, I took some pictures of the army thus far and found that posting it in the question thread would be excessive, also that I didn't have an ongoing thread for my largest painted army so here it is. The plan is to get my Shelf of Incompleteion cleared off then work on reinforcements for this alongside my Old School Undead army. Here we have the Pumpkin construct unit led by a Storybook Witch from Old Glory. I have 3 more of her, but the bag only came with the one flight stand and the Reaper ones I have don't fit, when I get around that, they'll form th
  2. The companion unit to the archers presented earlier. The back pumpkin is from a set of doll house decorations, the front two are from the Reaper pumpkin blister. Corn is made by JTT Scenery Products. The shields being large and mostly smooth were conductive to freehanding the pumpkins on.
  3. When the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch on Halloween to bring toys and gifts to the deserving, and a painful smiting to the pumpkin smashers, it is vital that He should covering fire if He needs it.... Four of these were among the first minis I painted for the Army of the Great Pumpkin, and I finally got around to getting them enough friends to make a unit. The large Jack O Lantern is from Reaper's pumpkin pack, I don't remember who manufactured the tree, I picked it up in the model railroad section of a hobby store sometime around 1997. There's also an Army Painter Was
  4. Another one bites the dust….😆 One of my favorite sculpt…but in the old Bones plastic. I put a little extra into the base, otherwise it was a pretty straight forward zen of Bones quick paint job. Overall I like the scheme and it has given me ideas for when I paint my metal version. Not sure about the green face and the blue glow under the rib cage is too subtle. And as an aside …..the quality of Testors Dullcoat is not nearly as good as it was a decade ago. The newer formulation continues to give me a semi gloss finish. Oh well.
  5. Plenty to paint with the new stuff so started somewhere simple while sorting through the small horde of miniatures that thudded onto the doorstep. In reality the head hasn't turned out that good , thank you sunlight, but did look okay and I love the purples on the cloak. The armour isn't quite how I would have liked but tried drybrushing the whole thing rather than relying on a deep wash. Fun figure though 🙂 Also followed the advice of Rhonda and made colour charts. Really useful as I switch to Reaper paints from others.
  6. So, for October this year I'm going to attempt to paint a mini a day. This will take the place of Minivember probably from now on. November's have just become too busy for me to feasibly paint everyday. This will be called All Minis Eve! I am currently in the process of making an advent calendar for October. I'll post how I'm doing it and progress, I hope to have it done before October so I can kick things off this year. How it works: I have tons of minis laying around so unless you want to or don't have enough (is that a problem around here?) minis you won't need to buy any (unle
  7. This is Reaper's Elise the Witch. SKU. 02863 ( Metal Figure) Once she was part of a big Halloween Diorama but that didn't survive the move. I was able to save the minis though. I rebased her, gave her some highlights/ repainted parts. She's back in action now, ready to turn you into a frog or a willing servant. Part of my Undead/Demon/Witchhunters Project https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79298-children-of-the-night-by-glitterwolf/
  8. Since I suggested it, I guess I'll do it... Here's a thread to discuss what horror movies, books, shows, comics, and etc that you're looking forward to watching during the holiday. I'm actually thinking about doing a Scooby-Doo movie marathon: Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island Scooby-Doo and the Witch's Ghost Scooby-Doo Meets KISS: A Magical Mystery (yes, this movie exists) Scooby-Doo and the Curse of the 13th Ghost What about the rest of you?
  9. I know, I know, 2020 is scary enough, but here are some spooky miniatures. First up, Fritz! 03709 Scooby-dooby-doo, where are you? 03920 I like how the blue edging came out on this one. 77098 To be continued...
  10. So there's a thing called Inktober/Drawlloween that @Pingo reminded me about, where you draw/paint/sketch/art a thing every day during October. There's the "official" list of daily prompts... and this other one that Pingo found that I think is cooler. So who else is up for the challenge?
  11. Not super sure where to post this but this made the most sense to me. I found some fantastic miniature pumpkins at my local Joann Fabrics. Hopefully you can find them elsewhere if you don't have a Joann's. They come in $10 bags that are pretty big. I don't see myself ever needing to buy more. They say "fall drieds" which makes me think they're some kind of organic. But they have the consistency of some kind of acorn or pinecone. So pretty solid. I don't think they'd deteriorate but if you're worried I'm sure a sealant of some kind would d
  12. I finally finished this project! This was a mini I got a forgotten number of years ago with an order during October. Being as this is a more modern vibe the first thing that came to my mind first is: Make her a neon Witch! This was such a joy to paint. It was my first real attempt at osl and sheer fabric. I used quite a few reaper paints but I will give you the main ones that pulled of the effects that I wanted. If you have other question feel free to ask and I will share with you what I used/did. Dominant paints used: Punk rock pink 09286 Marid blue 89526 Clear magenta 09
  13. Good Evening! SO after sorting through my minis and cleaning up my workstation post reaper con, I felt inspired to tackle some techniques that I have been avoiding. I wanted to pick a mini that i felt I could paint quickly (but lessbehonest, I don't paint quickly at all) and that would be a good candidate for two techniques that I am trying to learn. after a long drawn out process of hemming and hawing I found a miniature that I received an unmentionable number of years ago from reaper as a prize for buying miniatures during October. So it is Krissy the modern witch with out her familiar.
  14. AUGH! The Great Pumpkin Came! This was my entry in a painting league at another miniatures forum. In reference to the longstanding Peanuts theme of Linus sitting alone in the Pumpkin Patch waiting for the Great Pumpkin to come bringing gifts, Santa Claus-style. It's a pity for him that Halloween is all about the scary...and the Great Pumpkin probably is not a very nice being. The miniatures are all by Reaper, the fences are from Mantic's Kings of War Vanguard terrain. I found the simplicity of the fences really helped to sell the story here. As o
  15. Bonesylvanian and Mr & Mrs Bones and vulture. Pics to be added later.
  16. I know Reaper's a little busy right now, but when does the ghoulie bag thing start? I recall it being said that they were doing it again this year and was just wondering when it would start.
  17. Last year I painted Reaper's Halloween Knight with - I think - some success (you can check the mini on my Insta account, @albertnyarla); so I decided to start a tradition and pay hommage to my favourite festivity this year too. Here I went with one of my favourite horror tropes, the Witch, with this fantastic Witch Coven by Reaper, under the "Tree of Despair" from Bones IV, with a couple hommages to good horror movies. Had to refrain myself to include even more references to avoid getting it too crowded. Overall, I'm happy with the outcome. It will mean everything (if you li
  18. All done up for a Halloween present. Hope you all enjoy, this was a fun one!
  19. I bought this guy just before Halloween last year and promptly lost him. I found him Saturday evening under the sofa(!) while looking for my dog's missing tennis ball, so I finally got to paint him. This is the metal version but I can't find him on the Reaper site so I've given him the Bones SKU. The "leaves" on the base are actually bits of crushed red chili pepper and the stalk thingies are from a tree that's reachable from our balcony.
  20. My work for this past week. I don't have space to display big dioramas; not even for scenic bases. Lately, though, I've been trying really, really small diorama ideas or improved basing with a bit more life. An example was my Mucroack posted here a month ago or so. Now I used that idea to combine two Reaper miniatures that fit together perfectly; special edition Halloween Knight & Halloween Tree. I used a rusty bronze, green & orange palette for most of this work. Really happy with the outcome :) P.S. Gallery on Instagram @albertnyarla , will love some new follo
  21. A few weeks ago I began to perceive subtle changes heralding the return of my favorite time of year. Fortunately it also brought with a return of my motivation to paint. Over the course of time I've managed to amass many 20s of horror and undead minis so what better way to get into the season than start actually painting some of them. I picked this up at Goodwill some months ago with the idea of having it be a home for the witches. The original painter did a pretty good job on it, but I'm going for something a bit more Charles Addams . So it got a coat of Pavement Grey cra
  22. After missing last year I'm back. Good thing I started painting in August, just finished these last weekend! First up, a banshee (77096 Labella DeMornay, Banshee). Not too happy with this one, still working on finding just the right way to use the translucent Bones. I like how the dress turned out, though. Next up, 77097 Grave Wraith. Happier with this one, but still not quite right: Next, another pumpkin golem, 03708 Freddie, the Pumpkin Horror. I think I'm only missing one now. And what is Hal
  23. Hi everyone! Here's my latest and last Reaper Miniatures Bonesylvanian from the class of 2015. 01575, Olive the Vampire and Martini her Bat Familiar. This Metal exclusive model was sculpted by Gene Van Horne for Reaper Artist Conference 2015.
  24. It's been such a long time since I posted something here. I've been wanting to re-join the community for ages, and now I received a new photo tool I think will help me take better photos, let me share some again ^^ First we have the "All Hallow's Eve" figure. As usual when a figure doesn't have a name I like to give it one, and for her it's Black Aliss. I painted her short after christmas. I'm still stuck on the blacks, trying to improve the black highlighting. The underskirt reads as blue I think, besides that, I feel I reached a good level here. The base is pretty simple,
  25. Hey all, DMAgamus here. It was the extra spoopy time of year again, and I always put on a special game to celebrate. WHat better thing to pain, then, than pieces from the graveyard expansion of bones 3. I present to you, the crypt at the edge of the wilds! The Halloweenies! ANd their minion, Pete the Grave Golem! Also, I've added on pics of the full board, for fun. It was a great time had by all. Album link:Halloween Painting and Set Up
