  1. Knarthex sent me a few Ral Parha Pirates for my Lost World Project. Thx George! So I painted the first one up as Old Nedd from my stories. Here he is on a resin jungle base, ready to seek out gold. For those interested the WIP is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/
  2. So, For those of you not in the Know, some of the Google Hangout regulars decided that it would be a fun thing to pic the same mini, and all paint it over the course of the month... The idea was that we could bounce ideas off each other, as opinions, and discuss things about the mini, all in real time... We all thought that this guy, that Pezler mentioned, and that Dilvish, Chaoswolf and I knew we could get at a store on paint day, would be a fun simple, easy thing to do in between other serious projects.... He certainly ended up proving us wrong about that! But, he also showed us 'proof of concept' in that doing this kind of thing is very helpful, as we found so many things that made him a more complex sculpt than first appears... So here is mine, Finished last night.... WiP Here I noticed whilst taking the pics that I didn't re-trim the black edge of the base after adding in the Secret Weapon snow.... That will be fixed after posting this.... Thanks for looking! Next months Hangout mini of the month is Reaper's Goblin Shaman, Metal 02876, Bones 77349
  3. Hello! Just a quik and easy Tip that everyone can adopt.... While I am painting / crafting /ASSEMBLING at my desk, I spread an old towel I got in the Army across my lap. It's about 24" x 36". Not only does it protect my clothes, but I use the edges to clean the outer tips of dropper bottle before re-capping, and I occasionally wipe my brushes on it... But when I am assembling fiddly little bits, and inevitably drop them, it is much easier to find them on the towel in my lap than in all of the clutter of stuff under my painting station! So try it! It may save you some frustration.... Knarthex
  4. Posted 12 February 2017 - 10:25 PM We have reached a consensus for the March Mini... (sort off) Going with Chaos wolf's theme of building a warband is the following: Goblin Leader & Shaman Ben Siens In Metal In Bones This would give us an apprentice spell caster for March, and a Barbarian / warrior / knight for April.... Price is pretty nice in metal, but I realize some folks may already have the bones version..... I will be placing my order on Friday when the Trista mini comes out in metal Need the new Domor mini as well....
  5. So considering the fact that I am the Instigator of this, it is only fitting that I post my work tonight.... (I almost forgot! Good thing the guys on the hangouts reminded me!) So he had the the mold line removed that runs up from his left foot, up his body and arm, across the wolf pelt's nosw, and the staff's skull, down the staff and his right hand fingers, and down the staff and it's accoutrements... Also on the inside of the wolf skin between his legs... The tab was cut off, and after drilling holes, pins were inserted in his legs. He was then primed with P3 White Primer from a rattle can with 3 light coats... and this is where he stands.... Not quite sure what I am going to do with him yet, I thought about doing the wolf skin in Technicolor, but I have already done that twice... I think that I am going to use the old Polly S Armor Dark Green for the mid tone on his skin though.... Maybe a Winter Wolf for the fur????? Hair will likely be the MSP Red Hair Triad.... And the item strapped to his back looks like a long twisted horn with feathers on it, Maybe a Rod / Staff / Wand / Fetish???? Thanks for looking! George Darn it! The mold line is still there on the skull on top of the staff!!!!!
  6. So this is a Cthulhu Wars base that Vegascat sent me, (one of two), that I was painting as a piece of scatter terrain... It was supposed to be something easy and quick to fiddle with while other things were drying.... But like so many of my projects, it kind of grew.... And a close up of the Ivy WiP here Thanks for looking!
  7. So I was asked for a group shot of my Tre Manor / Red Box Games Warband.... Links to the individual Show offs: Ejrvindr the Far Seeing & Dagrun Arnholdt'sdottir Hawkeyed Arvid & Pretty Laerke Red Gunhildr & Little Svein Swiftfoot Njorn thugs The show offs should all have links to the Wips.... The building is from Games Workshop 40K, The Imperial City Box Set, Circa 2003? (Do you folks thing it works ok as Frostgrave terrain?) Thanks for looking!
  8. Is everything okay down in Texas??? Wondering as the new releases for today didn't seem to make it to the store.... Concerned for PEOPLE here, so not a nag.... George
  9. So my warband is complete! The snow effect is still drying as I took these pics, but I don't expect it to change to much.... (I will need to go around the bases with Black paint to cover the water effect smears....) Thanks to all those that followed along in the WiP! Can't wait to play a game now...... WiP here
  10. So I am getting ready to finish up my Wizard and Apprentice for Frostgrave, and I am wondering if there is a standard base size for the warband minis.... The pics in the main rulebook (the only book I have so far) doesn't mention anything as far as I can tell, and the Frostgrave minis pictured in the book look like they have their version of 'broccoli' bases, fitted to the mini... So before I mess this up, can anyone tell me what size I should use? Thinking 25 or 30mm would be best for the humans..... Thanks! George
  11. So Vegas Cat sent me 2 of these, and as I am going to paint day tomorrow, I washed and Primed it, as I find that doing things that do not require finesse, helps me to get more done at paint days.... Thanks for looking!
  12. So I put the Secret Weapon Crushed Glass Snow effects on their bases, and here they are, Ejrvindr the Far Seeing and his apprentice, Dagrun Arnholdt'sdottir... Thanks for looking! Comments and Critiques Welcome! George WiP found Here
  13. These 2 also got their Secret Weapon Crushed Glass Snow, and, Barring some base touch ups, are Done! Red Gunhildr Little Svein Swiftfoot Thanks for following along and Looking! WiP here Now on to the thugs and the warband will be done! (for now...)
  14. So I did not get these guys during the kickstarter, thinking that the guys with the shields would be more appropriate for Frostgrave, as I did NOT have the rule book at the time.... OOPS.... So I got them later, when I found out that the Njorn Hirdmen were a LOT more expensive! Another batch of things primed to start base coating at paint day tomorrow! These guys come in 4 parts, heads, bodies, right and left hands / weapons. Kind of fiddly assembly, and some green stuff gap filling required..... Thanks for looking!
  15. Just wondering, when I signed up for the forums last year, I posted quite a few pics in the Inspiration Gallery that were taken with an old camera, and were not edited in any way.... (Reaper minis mainly painted prior to joining....) I am just wondering, as I now have a decent camera, and photo editor, is it worth editing the original 'posts' to put in better pics? Or would I be better off deleting and re posting? Or just double up? Thanks! George
  16. So last Paint day at the Citadel in Groton CT, I picked up the OOP Chainmail Mini Orc Druid, because folks on the hangouts were talking about him... 88713 Orc Druid So I spoke to Dilvish, Chaoswolf, & Pezler, (and David Brawley), and most of us have him, (David has an Orc Champion) and we decided to have a Hangout Group Paint of this guy, for the Month of February. Now Dilvish still needs to get one, and the Citadel still has a few extra.... So if you have this figure, or a Chainmail or other Orc Spell Caster, Join in and paint with us! This is not a contest, or any type of pressure event, it is just something for a bunch of folks to do and talk about while we are hanging out.... So Join in if you like... Watch if you like! George Current Hangout link: https://hangouts.goo...3ogteaq4nokgdae Edit: I plan on doing my own WiP Thread, and using my placeholder below to put 1 pic of the latest sessions work..... Edit #2 Should we pick one night a week for working specifically on this mini on the hangouts? If so, what night is best? (Obviously, this isn't any kind of mandatory thing, It would just be set up for everyone to be able to show off their work, as well as asking each other's opinions about things, as well as the "Does anyone know what that doohickey on his belt is????" type questions....) Edit #3 For those of you who don't have, or want to get the Chainmail figure, Reaper makes this guy: 02980: Quosk Ravensire, Half-Orc Druid ($4.99) James van Schaik
  17. So at some point this graced a fish tank, with fish in it, but that was long ago... So now, instead of going in the trash, It will become a Statue for Frostgrave! Material is resin, and I needed to fill some holes with Pro-Create. I also Bulked out the attachment point for the wings, as they were hitting him in the head... Raw state, with pin and Pro-Create: Primed with Duplicolor Black Sandable primer: Not sure if I will paint the foliage as stone or as living plants, and I am thinking Verdigrised Copper/Brass for the Bowl he is holding.... Thoughts and comments welcome! George
  18. So I rescued an old aquarium decoration, and painted it up as a statue for the planed New England Miniature Painters Association Frostgrave campaign.... Hope you like it! WiP here George
  19. So I finished this by adding some static Grass..... A piece of scatter terrain for games.... Thanks for looking! George
  20. So these 2 are being done concurrently with the 2 archers for my Frostgrave warband, so there will likely be overlap with the colors used in the 2 WiPs.... So I started doing the flesh on the next parts of my Frostgrave warband, Red Gunhildr the Barbarian, & Little Svein Swiftfoot the Thief.... GW Scorched Brown, Reaper Linen White & SC75 Tesla Blue for the eyes..... Arabic Shadow, Arabic Shadow and Basic Flesh 50%, Basic Flesh, Basic Flesh and Golden Skin 50%, Golden Skin, Golden Skin and Light Skin 50%, light Skin, and a glaze of Golden Skin and Basic flesh 3/2... Gunhildr's hair started with Abyssal Blue.... Svien: Thanks for looking, and Comments and Critiques welcome!
  21. So I started doing the flesh on the next parts of my Frostgrave warband, Hawkeyed Arvid & Pretty Laerke... GW Scorched Brown, Reaper Linen White & SC75 Tesla Blue for the eyes..... Arabic Shadow, Arabic Shadow and Basic Flesh 50%, Basic Flesh, Basic Flesh and Golden Skin 50%, Golden Skin, Golden Skin and Light Skin 50%, light Skin, and a glaze of Golden Skin and Basic flesh 3/2.. Arvid's hair with MSP Auburn Shadow, Laerke's with VMC Black Brown... Arvid: Laerke: Thanks for looking! George

    I am IMMORTAL!

    So as some of you know, I have been feeling pretty crummy for the past few days, between life and being ill... Well that came to a SCREECHING HALT, when I opened the package I got in the mail today.... With a backdrop I think I know now how some of the other folks around here must feel.... ​I am Immortalized in Miniature! Also a surprise I get to paint a Malefactus' Original!!!! Thanks so much Mal! I love them to pieces!!!!!! _____ [LIKE] <---<<< My own personal 'LIKE' button! You can all use it if you like as well!!!!! George
  23. So I finished up the bases on these 2, so they will be my last show offs for 2016.... They were nice clean sculpts, and seem to follow the pic in MMI from back in the day... Thanks for looking and Happy New Year to All! And much pleasant painting! George
  24. So I am going to scroll back through the years RPChallenge to see what I got done... January: Archway (03684) Takhisis (1926 of 5000) February: Barbarian Queen (DSM 7523) {Takhisis in Human Form} (Silver Medal, Painter's Category, Reapercon 2016) Ivan, Vampire Wizard (02866) Mathias the Twisted (02867) March: Balto Burrowell FD Bar-Igura (x3)(OPDM41) FD Bodak (OPDV34) JR Miniatures Tents (x2) April: FD Barbhast Devils (x3)(OPDV23) Reaper Gothic Archway (02703) Ral Partha Goblins (11-432)(x5) May: Ral Partha Wolf 02-508C Ral Partha Maglubiyet 10-521 Some Barrels (x4) Bombshell Minionbot June: Infamy Goblin Chieftain on Death Chicken Oathsworn Wood Elf Ranger in sensible boots Duck into Platypus (Team Frog mini) (Bronze Medal, Open category, Reapercon 2016) July: Otherworld Xorn Ral Partha Xorn Grenadier Brazier (No show off done) Drow Takky August: Grenadier Cave Fisher Show Off Sir ForScale (Garrick The Bold 77008) Show Off The Ranger Josey Wales (DSM Male Ranger (7403))Show Off Sir ForScale of Tabletop (Garrick The Bold 77008) Show Off September: "The Councillors" (4 minis from the diorama)October: FR-1 Diorama (5-7 minis) (Bronze Medal, Diorama category, Reapercon 2016) Super Duper Secret Secret Project Bombshell Geirahod, The Spear of Battle (10016) November & December: 6 Battlefront 15mm M1 Abrams tanks 2 Battlefront 15mm Huey Cora Helicopter Gunships (Show Off for 1&2) Ejrvindr the Far Seeing (Red Box) Dagrun Arnholdt'sdottir (Red Box) (Show Off for 3&4) Kane (Bronze Age) (show off) 4 Battlefront 15mm M163 PIVAD (Product Improved Vulcan Air Defense) WiP (Consolidated Battlefront WiP)(no show off yet) 2 Intellect Devourers (Dreamscarred Press) Show Off So it looks like I got 65 minis done in 2016, some bigger, some smaller... some better, some not... Looking back over the list, I seem to have done a bit of putty pushing, starting with GAP filling on Takhisis, to adding armor to a mini, and doing some serious mods to some other things in my diorama.... Had some fun making Forumites in 28mm too.... Overall, I learned a lot of stuff from you folks, and am grateful for all the comments and critiques that you have given me over the past year. Thanks for those and keep them up! Paint On! George
  25. Since our Wizard Most Wild started painting his Mind Eater, I decided that I should work on the ones that I started earlier... So these 2 guys were used as the mold master for the heads of my Intellect Devourers, in my Reapercon '16 Diorama entry, as well as color scheme test beds.... From that Wip thread: So tonight I added some Deep Blue to their legs... Hopefully will get these two done by the end of the year.... Thanks for looking!
