  1. Recently got painted what may've been my favorite mini from Bones 2, the adaptation of Tre Manor's Krug, Hill Giant Chiefton. Great model, my first giant, and a fun one to paint, turned out. Just tried to keep it pretty simple, I guess. Tried for white wood with the club, in my ongoing quest to get wood right/not awful. Thought the goldish metal went well on it, too. I'm always silver. Wanted a wasteland-stones-something kind of something I don't know with the base. Thanks for looking!

    Sharkman (77278) from Bones II

    I completed the Sharkman figure this week from the Bones II Core Set "Under the Sea" group. I didn't like this figure at first because it is sculpted oddly, so that the whole body of the Sharkman is slanted off to one side. I have looked at a couple of these figures, and they all seem to share this quality. It doesn't seem to be a typical Bones bent leg problem, but actually the way the figure is constructed. I decided that putting something under the foot on the tilted side might help bring the figure back up into alignment. Also, there were gaps where the shoulders attach to the body that needed to be filled. My solution was to use some 2-part epoxy putty to prop up the leaning leg by making a rock for the figure to stand on. I also used the epoxy putty to fill in the gap now created by the different angle of the foot on the other leg, as well as the gaps in the shoulders. It was an easy fix, and in my opinion improves the figure. I'm pleased with how Mr Sharkman turned out. And I think the base turned out suitably so that he won't look too out of place either on land or an underwater setting. I may go back and hit the eyes with a little gloss varnish as I think they look a little flat and not beady enough. For my complete write-up on painting the Sharkman, please see my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/08/sharkman-bones-ii-figure.html
  3. Rugg, Bugbear Leader One of the Bones2 bugbears. I'm really pleased with the result. Great Worm The very popular great worm. My version doesn't hold any of the vast creativity that has been unleashed upon this model but I think it turned out quite nice despite it's "mundaness".

    Citadel AD&D "Umber Hulk" - ADD77

    Another recently painted classic mini from the olden days....... This "Umber Hulk" comes from the mid 1980's when Citadel had the licence to produce Advanced D&D minis. I painted it as per the description in the 4th Edition Monster Manual & I'm happy with how it turned out, I'm not so happy with the simplistic base, I'll probably go back and sort that out sometime. Thanks for looking!

    Bones II Mountain Troll (77333)

    This week I completed the Mountain Troll from the Bones II, Expansion Pack 1. I tend to hesitate to select the large figures to do, as I somehow find the prospect of painting them intimidating; and I want to try and make more of an effort to work on them in the future. This guy, for all his size, was a nice easy figure to complete. For the complete painting write-up, please see my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/08/mountain-troll-bones-ii-figue.html

    77337: Giant Scorpion

    Another day, another mini off of the shelf. In all honesty the Giant Scorpion wasn't on my shelf for very long, maybe a couple of weeks. It only got as far as the brown liner priming before its timeout. This time, I needed a test subject for the Scalecolor NMM gold/brass paints. Obviously I didn't paint the scorpion NMM, though you could if you wanted to, but I did get an idea of what the paints look like straight and mixed together. At this point I lack any desert flora to liven the base up, so it's just sandy. One tabletop Giant Scorpion to the done pile.

    77232: Mogg, Bugbear Warrior

    For the second mini of off the shelf of shame I have another bugbear. Mogg was the same as Rugg, I got tired of painting bugbears and saved him as a test subject. His shield was a test for the Scalecolor wood paint set. Mogg isn't actually sealed yet, but I had the camera out so I went ahead posted him

    77231: Rugg, Bugbear Leader

    My August goal is to clean off my shelf of shame, or at least shrink it down some. The first mini of the month is Rugg, bugbear leader. He was started at the same time as the bugbear warriors I posted awhile back, but I ran out of steam after five bugbears and put him on the shelf. My rational was to save him as a test subject for the Scalecolor set I had in the mail and he did serve that purpose... eventually. Poor Rugg looks like he could have used another shot of dullcote before his photo shoot. The gloss is nowhere near as noticeable under ambient lighting though, so I doubt I bother with another coat just for gaming.

    Monstropot in my desk

    Hi, A really quick paint for this little diorama :). Maow Miniatures is a good french associating sculptors.
  12. What's got 3 heads & goes "roar", "hiss" & "baaaaaa"............? This vintage Citadel "Chimera"! I based my colours on the description in the 4th edition AD&D monster manual but changed the dragon head from orange to red. Interestingly, this mini never had wings. Thanks for looking.

    Classic minotaur

    Well, i based another mini, minimaly this time. Not to much going on but sometimes a little goes a long way. One of the first mini i did this year but i waited for the right idea for the base. I really love using the juice bottle caps for basing. Always gives a good presentation and there is room for decor without drowning the mini in it. I went classic for this beast. Can't go wrong with that. I'll go crazy if i do another one. Maybe black & white like a holstein. Will see. I recently got some tools to remove the blob bases. Most of them will fare well without'em. Should have done that sooner. Oh well... Practice, learn, get better and practice some more.

    Siri's Bestiary

    So it was suggested I make a little thread/bestiary for all the critters I've created. So why not? Here we go! I've put little small bios on the images too For awesome info on some of these, check this post: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/56852-siris-bestiary/?p=963165 A: B: C: D: E: F: G: H: I: J: K: L:
  15. Painted up 77006: Great Worm after NomadZeke requested a nontraditional monster for the 2015 Summer exchange. (It's really fun, you should join) Been trying to work on more range in my shadows and highlights so I tried out the technique from How to Blend by olliekickflip. Still need a lot of practice but I call it a success. All of the shading was done only by starting with a white base and building up the paint.

    Gourls Paints 77191: Hydra

    Another bigger mini from me. I'm still getting used to painting miniatures this size. I didn't really go for anything too wild here though. A pretty traditional color scheme, I think. Still trying to nail something I'd call tabletop quality, though I think this fits the bill okay. I like how my serpent-eye effect turned out. I think if I painted another one of these guys I'd do something different with the coloration, maybe duller scale colors, as if he sunned himself a lot or something. I also wouldn't have assembled it first (I bought him a long time ago and put him together and just started painting him the other day) as the inner heads especially were a huge pain to get to. Lesson learned! Don't assemble miniatures with enclosed space before applying paint. Anyway, enjoy!

    Kobolds (Bones)

    I apologize sincerely for flooding the forum, but this is the last one, should be for a while. Ben Siens's Bones kobolds. My low-level monster parties are pretty much complete. Thanks for looking!

    Painted Ice Troll (77344) Bones II

    This week I completed the Ice Troll from the Bones II "Expansion Pack I". I'm particularly pleased with how his face came out. For the step-by-step painting write-up, please see my Bones painting blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/06/ice-troll-bones-ii-figure.html

    Gourls Paints 77315: Fire Demon

    Finished the balor fire demon that my roommate got from his Bones II fulfillment that I started forever ago tonight. There are some things I could do to make him better, but honestly I'm kind of sick of looking at him and painting over him. I've never painted anything this size before. I learned quite a bit. Like that I should probably paint before assembling (which fills me with dread because I already assembled the minotaur demon and I want to paint him too). Anyway, I haven't seen many of this guy painted yet. He's a fun sculpt I think. I was going for sort of lightning runes on his sword, but I don't yet know/have the brush control/have a small enough brush to be able to pull that off. So. Blue it is for now.

    77313: Hill Giant Krug

    Friendly giant Blurrrrr. Marauding the land, looking for some hugs.
  22. I've actually been working on this off and on since my roommate's Bones II fulfillment box arrived. I've never painted anything this size before. It's been daunting, honestly. I also realize I should have painted the pieces separately before I glued him together. Which brings up a question: good way to pull apart pre-assembled Bones? Some that showed up aren't glued all that well and will be a nightmare to paint assembled. I haven't found a good advice source for how to do this (though admittedly I haven't combed through here completely).

    01538: Lon - Chibi Werewolf

    Here is one of my RCon 15 entries, Lon the Chibi Werewolf. Normally I don't go this extreme with base. But I had an idea and had to go with it. Thanks for any C&C you feel inspired to post. For those attending RCon '15, I hope to see you there.
  25. Normally I'd title this a little simpler but Marineal's gorgeous Tiik Champion is nearby and I'd rather people not confuse the two. So this is my Tiik Champion. Nothing fancy about the basing; it's on a 1.5-inch fender washer for extra stability, painted illusionistically like sand. WIP thread here.
