  1. 'Scorch' Sotniko was hot. This whole damn world was hot, but this stinking jungle somehow seemed to be hotter still. The other mercenaries he was moving through the jungle with looked like they were feeling about the same as he was. Strange Midnight, their scout, didn't seem to be bothered as much as everyone else, but that was because he came from the rad deserts of Zargove-3. This was just a nice stroll in the woods for him. Scorch knew that they'd be at the rendezvous point in another half hour or so, and then he'd get a break. He'd be able to refill his canteens, as well as to remove the h
  2. So after painting a bunch of fantasy adventurers, I decided I needed a bit of a change of pace. Enter my finds of some IMEF infantrymen and a mech from something I'm not familiar with (all Reaper minis).. and combine that with my extensive experience with military model kits. What you get is this project to paint the IMEF guys in colors inspired by the Japanese Special Naval Landing Forces; one is finished and the others are in progress. The mech is being painted up in camo inspired by Japanese army tank camo colors to make it kind of a matching set. In the last pic you can also
  3. Back in December, when I finally had some time and motivation to get back to painting, I decided I'd really quickly do up some IMEF marines. Just table top, didn't even clean up mold lines or anything. Well, do primarily to being easily distracted by......what was I saying? Oh yes, easily distracted by other bright shiny objects, it took me over 4 months to get them all done. Here is a quick group shot. I still don't have any real futuristic urban terrain to use to shoot these guys. Reggie and Torch still need to be sealed, but looking at the forecast it could be
  4. Continuing on from my sculpting thread here, I've begun assembly and painting of my Rottweiler tank. Started sanding and first coat of primer. Ran out of black primer, so stalled myself out. I'm thinking this might be a practice piece for a ReaperCon entry of the same tank.
  5. Started these back in October, specifically the Sara Blitzer conversion. Was working on them at Reapercon, finished them during the Minivember challenge. Based and sprayed last night. I also completed one more of the Tisdale cousins, from the BoGW. They are ready for the game tonight. From left to right: 80024, 80049, 80014, 80019, 80021, 80010.
  6. Got my painting room into shape enough to start painting. Since I haven't really done much since...May? I figured I'd just done some quick table top figs to get back into it. Most of my figs are still stuffed in the closet or basement, but I found a bag of IMEF marines I'd been using as proxies for SecFor IV in MERCS: Recon until I got some MERCS painted. Picked out one of each (don't seem to have the kneeling guy, have to track him down once I get my Bones out of the closet) and threw some brown liner on them. So far I've determined I need to steal the comfy padded
  7. Some of you have probably seen my Tycho AFV for my Nova Corp figures, and the Rottweiler Grav Tank I'm working on for my IMEF figures. They've been quite fun to create. And now I've been going through my collection of other Reaper Chronoscope figures, and I've realized I've got a few other groups of figures that I could make similar sized units from. If I do that, it would be only fair if I gave them each a vehicle. Since it will be a little bit before I actually get around to any of these, I thought I would ask you all what sort of look you would envision for vehicles for these various fa
  8. As if I didn't already have so many projects in progress I can't count, I kept looking at the case of Bones IMEF figures, and thought "These guys need something that can take out a few NOVA Corp Tycho AFVs." This concept was born: I am shooting for it to be about the size of a GW Land Raider. Going to block it out in Fusion 360 soon.
  9. Did anyone notice that newer IMEF troopers (50322, 50323, 50324, 50325) are about substantially bigger then older IMEF figures like 50263, 50254, 50175. Why this inconsistency? The newer trooper look gigantic compared to the old ones - full head taller, bulkier body. Also the newer troopers have molded in base that need substantial cutting in order to fit on a regular reaper 30mm round base (included w mini). Why change from tab/slot configuration? Is this a new norm? A new IMEF series? "Hello little boy" ig
  10. This is from last weekend's lazy paint day. I may add some water slide decals when I get my regular paint station back.
  11. As mentioned in my other threads, running a modern campaign now as well as trying to hit a certain goal by the end of the year which means painting needs to pick up and time to get these modern minis done (how many years ago was Bones I released? let's not talk about that...) This mini was more fun than she looked unpainted. She has a quirky early 90s looking poof of hair poking up around her head piece reminiscent of Jean Grey from the X-Men cartoon series. Based on that I thought an odd color combo (red and purple) might be more fun. The camo on the gun was an after though as I was trying to
  12. Decided to intersperse some modern folks with my painting since my gaming group had discussed possibly playing a modern campaign in a few months. Picked this guy up to try out my skills on the troopers. Mostly happy with how he turned out. Some details that I didn't quite get the way I wanted, but okay enough for table top I think. Thank you for reading and following along!
  13. For Secret Sophie this year I got Klarg1 and he was looking for something Sci-Fi. I'd had an IMEF Bulldog that I'd been eager to paint since it first came out (Big Stompy Robots!!) but never gotten to. So I ordered myself another one and started in on it. I decided early on to go with battle damaged, so I could use both the pilot and the hatch, and so I could try out painting some damage. Then after Christmas I needed something to paint at work (and had just received a bunch of new military triads from the 12 days of Reaper) so I grabbed a couple of IMEF troopers t
  14. Some of you may remember that I recently posted the IMEF Reggie Van Zandt figure I had completed as a test figure for painting the rest of the IMEF set from the Bones 1 Kickstarter: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65909-imef-reggie-van-zandt-80017-bones/?hl=imef Over the Christmas break I had the time to finish the last of the figures from the set with quick tabletop paint-jobs, and here they are: As always, C & C welcome
  15. I completed the IMEF Reggie Van Zandt Gatling-gunner figure over the weekend. This was my test figure for a paint scheme for the rest of the IMEF crew that came with the Bones I KS. I did a nice serviceable tabletop quality paint job on him, but was quite pleased with how is face turned out. All C & C welcome.
  16. How many parts are there to this model? Is the head/hatch separate? I ask because I'd like to see these next to my CAV models. Cheers.
  17. I haven't posted anything in Show Off for awhile, so to start here's the IMEF squad that I just finished off. I've been painting nothing but fantasy this year, so it was a nice change of pace.
  18. For no reason in particular, I decided to paint up some bones that weren't fantasy. First, I did a general search for military uniforms but I wasn't inspired by the modern stuff. Then I did a search for historical uniforms, which had more potential but still wasn't exactly what I was looking for either. In the end, I decided to make up my squad colors based off of the following line of reasoning: In the near future the battlefield has shifted from areas where chlorophyll and dirt predominate to urban areas and spaceship corridors. Tech has advanced to the point where avoiding detection
  19. I've finally got around to painting a figure for my character in my friend Joff's Traveller game — Cyrus Button, bodyguard, enforcer, and party accountant. It's Bones 80016: IMEF: Nick Stone. Just in time for the campaign to fold. Oh well, timing is everything, they say. We never really used miniatures in that game anyway.
  20. I'm not sure at what point it hit me, but when going through my Bones I realized that several of the IMEF Marines would make excellent G.I. Joes. Blowtorch was my "proof of concept", since I figured he had about the wildest color scheme of any of the characters that would match up. Can you figure out who is who? EDIT: Fixed broken links.
  21. Was looking at the bases on the ones in the Preview section and started wondering just how wide the integral bases are. I've got some of the Chronoscope ones in the 30mm recessed bases they come with and was thinking about getting some of the 3 with assault rifles to convert into additional soldiers, so I was wondering if the new bases match the recessed area of the 30mm lipped bases?
  22. So, I've got a few bugs for the IMEF to hunt, but in order to do it right, there need to be some grungy, steam-filled corridors for them to hunt the bugs IN. Thanks to a trip to Skycraft (a local surplus store in the Orlando, Florida area), and to the generosity of my friend Chris Stadler (who has practically every Hirst Arts Castlemold ever made), I've got a good start on some modular sci-fi corridor sections. At Skycraft Surplus, I picked up a bunch of "Fluoroware" 2" square tiles (some slightly pressure-warped wafer trays), plus I've got a bunch of plastic cross-stitch grid and assorted
  23. At my local Barnes & Noble, I spotted a few Halo "Micro Ops" toys in the clearance bin for 50%, and I had a gift card to use. Although it was pretty clear that the figures in "Micro Ops" are NOT compatible with, say, Chronoscope ("Master Chief" in the set stands at slightly over 1" from bottom of feet to top of head, or about 1:72 scale), I thought it looked like it'd still be big enough to make use of. The "High Ground" set main pieces -- the Gate and the Tower -- were listed at $35 each (so at 50% off, I managed to get them together for $35). I was guilty of over-estimating th
