  1. So I am currently running my group (we've been playing since the Red Box or 2nd depending on the players and have dabbled through multiple other RP systems over the years) through a mixed campaign of the Lost Mine of Phandelver and Out of the Abyss (Players were contacted to help find the lost Mine and were kidnapped by the red cape-wearing bandits while in town who turned out to be working for the Drow and they end up in the Underdark in Out of the Abyss. They are almost out of the Underdark which should lead them back to resolve the Phandelver mess before they get the summons to return to t
  2. These maginificent minis were donated by @malefactus to add to my Lost World Project. WIP Here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/&page=109 Eureka Miniatures ( Pond Wars Range). I painted the Frog riders as Poison Dart Frogs and the Toad mounts as Bombina Orientalis ( Chinese Firebelly Toads). I had both as pets in my youth. Here is the unit, and in the latter pics on my Jungle Photobackdrop Board.
  3. Couple of baddies from the Demons & Devils "core set extras" in the last KS. Tried to get them to hold still, but they just did NOT want to be photographed.
  4. Anyone here backing this one? I missed the first one, of Feyland, but there's a level where you can get both books. I don't have a ton of physical 3rd party 5e stuff so I'm down for it. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1875657065/monsters-of-the-underworld-for-5th-edition Brave the darkness and discover Monsters of the Underworld! You'll find unusual monsters and entire societies in this strange land. You don't just have to watch your back, you have to watch out above and below as well! Guiding you through this dangerous world is Desmond Hawkeye, an experienced
  5. The New Offering from Paymaster Games and their Going Native line. Going Native: From out of the Mists is a model centered campaign that will cover different heroes, warriors, monsters and gods of the New World. Here is the link to the KS Page -
  6. Monstro, via @Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/minibossstudios/monstro Don't know anything about this. I see a lot of renders at the moment. But cute chibi monsters. ^.^
  7. And now for the rest of Village Attacks, the star players themselves, the Monsters and Town Heroes. Looking over the photos, I may need to do another coat of fixer spray. They're looking a little bit frosty in the pictures, which is not as obvious to the naked eye. Part 1 can be found here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/83216-lidless-eye-hobbies-village-attacks-peasants-hunters/ To start, the characters themselves, the MONSTERS: Next is the piece that convinced me to join the Kickstarter, because you can play as Baba Yaga: Bewa
  8. Wow I feel really outclassed here but I've gotta start somewhere... Painted these for a friend's birthday, it was several months past his birthday when I finished, lol. Unfortunately before I could properly finish he had to move so I had to rush and couldn't do as much as I'd like. A lot of bases remained unpainted, and some touch ups on some of the skintones that I was planning on doing after had to be left as they were. Not sure how many I can fit before it starts flagging me as spam so I'm just gonna show a photo of all of them, and then some of the monsters. They're the ones I'm
  9. Here is the Lich from the Grenadier Monsters box set. I didnt highlight the robe. I wanted it to stay grungy looking. I’m not sure if that was a mistake or not. How does one highlight a grungy purple robe? What color mix would one use?
  10. The next set out of Bones 3, various monsters! The Carrion Worm really grew on me! The Temple Dragon is really cool. I hadn't even realized until I was inking it that the base was a statue of a robed woman: The Manticore, who I was specifically hoping for before they announced it during the campaign. It's a classic monster I didn't have a mini of! Lastly, the Giant Cobra. Kind of rushed this one along...he also appears to hide from the camera focus.
  11. Now, MOST of us have a clue where the monsters came from, at least in a rudimentary sense. Tolkien invented the orc as we know it, and the giant spider in fantasy; Robert E. Howard seemed to have a thing for giant snakes. We know that centaurs came from ancient Greece, dwarves and trolls from Scandinavian myth, goblins from Western Europe, dragons from more or less everywhere, and so on. No, don't correct me; I'm bein' general here, and approaching a point. I'm kinda curious, though: Where'd some of the weirdier critters come from? It is legend among the Gamers and the Geekosphere about
  12. This mummy was hungry when he woke up. He is now snacking on the poor adventurer who woke him. He is making a mess on the mable floor of his tomb as he is tracking the blood around and dribbling on the floor. The pose was a bit strange with one hand held up and one hand near his face, so I tried to make sense of it by putting a big bloody hunk of meat in his outstretched hand. It's a bit gratuitous, but I'm ok with some gratuitous gore once in a while. If I ever use it in a D&D game, he is definitely tearing someone's arm off on a "natural 20."
  13. This ends in 24 hours roughly. There's also a related previous kickestarter. Expands on previous line.
  14. So I did up these gentlemen. I made up a story in my head about how they're a trio of brothers who jointly run the biggest, baddest band of bugbears in the land. They'd make decent-ish foils for some low-level adventurers I think. Nothing mind-blowing in hand but they'll look fine on the table, which is generally always my goal anyway. I tried to get some blood-spatter going on, but admittedly I've never really looked into how to go about it. I just drybrushed some red onto their weapons (and Mogg's shield, though you can't see it). It turned out well enough you can tell what it's meant to be
  15. A few quick repaints. I'm quite pleased with how the gnoll turned out with such little effort. Barghest Savagers (the photo is to bright but the minis aren't important enough for me to fix it :) Gnoll Barbarian Wolf Spiders
  16. 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!
  17. I've painted very few monsters, and I thought I'd get my toes wet by doing up a few rather iconic minis in the fire and water elementals from Bones I and II. I really like these guys. I need to pick up an earth elemental still, and have my fingers crossed for an air elemental in Bones III to round out the elemental quartet. I wish that the store weren't out (again/still) of the fire elemental, as I'd love to have another one. This one belongs to my roommate. He likes collecting Reaper minis, but doesn't paint them. So good news is I have plenty of minis to practice on. Bad news is once I move
  18. I went back and forth over whether these needed to be linked for nudity, but they're not nude, they're plants that look sort of like women. I saw other versions posted on the forums so I guess they're okay. These are fun figures. They're killer seaweed with humanlike form. They haven't got faces, just sort of eyespots. There are little skulls nestled under their fronds. I have them in metal too, but these are the first I've painted. Here they are primed with Reaper Brown Liner. I mixed a transparent dark green out of Phthalocyanine Green and Burnt Sienna and washed it over t
  19. I'm painting up some aquatic PCs and monsters for upcoming ocean adventures. I had primed and glued these to fender washers for bases last year, but only just got started painting them. At that time I was priming Bones with a mixed brown of Burnt Umber and Titanium White, then washing over them with Burnt Umber to bring out the details. These days I think using just plain Reaper's Brown Liner is simpler and works better. The two Tiik Warriors are based on one-inch washers and the Champion is on a 1.5-inch washer. One fish-man is going to be greenish. I'm not really basing it o
  20. I'm building an Ogre army for Mantic Games' Kings of War, since pictures of it in play seem to give off an old-school Warhammer 3rd Edition vibe in a lot of ways, and the game allows pretty free proxying of models, so you can use whatever you like and feel is cool. I put together and painted a couple of units of Mantic's new Ogre Shooter models recently. The main reason I started Ogres though, was to have a reason/excuse to get out my classic Citadel Ogre models that I'd just painted for the pleasure of it. All of them painted between 10 and 23 years ago. I've also got several that are sti
  21. Hey, folks. Picked up some kobolds for the PF game I'm running, and I finally got them painted. These are the metal set of four, by Ben Siens, from the Dark Heaven line. I'm afraid my photos are letting me down even more than my painting skills. I haven't figured out my setup, yet. I was really proud of how I highlighted these guys with orange highlights--I'm still working to eschew the too-white highlights and all--but they're washing pretty well in these pictures. Everything I'm trying lately tends to be either too light or too dark. Hopefully some of it's getting through, though.
  22. Finally--FINALLY--finished the Goblin War Band on which I started a month and a half ago, before we moved. Reaper stuff, sculpted by Ben Siens. These are sculpts I really love--I've got some PF goblins headed my way, and they're cool, but I really dig the more traditional take. Or, at least, that seems more traditional to me, anyway. I likes 'em. I don't know how well these are going to show, but I feel like I had some measure of success with these. I didn't over-highlight, at least not with the super-whitened green like I did with the orcs, while back. I used the same home-mixed green for
  23. So today, I was painting. And taking occasional breaks to waste time on the internet. You know. "A day off." And I noted something interesting on artist Tony diTerlizzi's blog: Tony's got this really interesting article up about the origins of some of the first Dungeons and Dragons monsters... whose MINIATURES actually predate the MONSTER! Usually, someone comes up with the idea of "beholder" or "Frog Dragon" or whatever, and then someone SCULPTS the thing. But these creatures actually caused the development of their D&D counterparts -- in the illustration above, the rust monster, bulet
  24. I've just finished these today (excepting varnish and then the bases, they need tufts and weathering powder yet). Got them in the KS, nice models by Remy but not the most enjoyable painting experience (a slog, rather). Very glad to have them finished. Far less glad to need to do another six of them... More pics on my blog (linked from my sig) along with my issues with the sculpts and some WIP for those who are interested in that sort of thing.
