  1. I am presently working through the Chibi's from Reaper I have collected. This is the first to be completed in 2017. I present to you TUT #01546. I need to get better at eyes though especially for these Chibi's.. any suggestions, guidance or critique would be appreciated.
  2. One I did just for fun. He was a cool model, and lots of fun to paint - just the right amount of detail. He helped in working on my NMM, and OSL and this is my 4th 'real' attempt for both. It turned out not too bad. Ugh....I just realized I need to fix up the back of the sword....
  3. I had this idea to paint these guys up in grey. Wanted them to look like they stepped right off the celluloid. The vampire, mummy, Frankenstein's monster and wolfman are all Reaper minis. The Creature from the Black Lagoon is a Four A Miniature. The coffin I got from a pack of Halloween decorations from Michael's Craft Store.
  4. Really just gave him a decent weapon. I think he looks the part.:
  5. This is the finished product of my work in progress here. The model should have taken me about a month or so to paint, but the work in progress pushed me to work on it more often. Just about every night I did something with it. The first base I painted was a premade resin base. However, his legs were too spread apart to fit properly, so I made this one myself. Used a bunch of my modeling clay which was not cheap, but I figured it was worth the effort. I actually liked the work in progress forum. People were very supportive and gave nice ideas. So a big thanks to those that followed my short journey there and I think I will return in the future. Without further adieu...
  6. I got at least one request to do a work in progress for my next model........so here I am :) Not sure how I feel about WIP posting. I sort of like the surprise of seeing a mini for the first time posted finished. We shall see what happens. ...and yes, that is a robotic thumb I have. some of my implants may be called cheating by some, but I say there is no crying in miniature painting! Get your own robotic appendages. Based skin and some shadowing. My eyes are having trouble seeing where skin ends and cloth begins. This is not going to be an easy mini. My own wash concoction. Happy with the experiment, exactly what I wanted which rarely happens. painting the bandages and started on some metals. Usually colors are easy for me, but the painted mini I was looking at for reference has relatively the same colors I would have gone with. Sooooo...trying to picture some other scheme in my head since I don't want a copy of what was already done. Either I have a master plan or I am avoiding certain areas that I don't want to paint yet. Not sure about the metallic purple armor trim either. I know the purple armor trim on the leg has got to go. Still not sure about the shoulders, I kinda like it. On his back, the purple brings out the eye of Horus design nicely. Things don't always go as planned. I spent a lot of time painting that weapon and just could not get what I wanted. I like it as gold more. At leas you get to see what might have been. After that I'm Almost there. The sash up front and tied around his waist. Some touching up, sealing and then it will be on to painting up a nice base. Finished Painting the model, time to work on a base. Oh man, at the foot of the stairs! Big blob of putty with some freehand sculpting, some recycled stands made into stairs (which I am a little regretting clipping his, because I could have jammed them into the putty instead of using other items to keep him steady while the glue and putty did their trick) and some rocks glued on. a few more steps and I should it should be complete.
  7. Here are 2 quick photos, individual photos to come. Started on my computer because the phone is taking some getting used to.
  8. So I picked the mummy horde to paint up something quick, but it ended up I spent a lot of time fiddling with them. I had hoped to do just a quick base color, some drybrushing, voila, done. But alas that was not to be. Finally done, they are not that great, but they will work fine as undead opponents for any desert faring party. The only metal one (Reaper 2156), slightly reposed: 3 of the Bones ones (77144), with annoying flash lines still there: And the group shots:
  9. I didn't have a good weekend with the paints. Everything I tried to do seemed to not work. I finally ended up throwing in the towel on this guy, and glopping some paint on him. I will go back and base later when I'm not fed up with paint. C&C welcome.
  10. I was doing home remodeling and was self-exiled from my home and paint desk for over two months, so when I got access to my hobby room and paint desk and reorganized, I collected all my unfinished projects on the desk and realized my shelf of shame had grown to unacceptable proportions. I decided to tackle finishing as many of these pieces just to get them off my desk before I move on, even if I speed paint them or cut steps, but I am tired of looking at too many primed-only or part painted minis. So here is the first wave: Mashaaf which was my favorite to paint among these, the bones mummy lich I had nearly finished six months ago, which was nice except had too soft details on the face, the Scibor elven ruins, Mega Miniatures pack mules I base coated two years ago, and some GriffinTamer terrain pieces. These are not my best work by far but I'm going to call them done for now to get them off my desk and maybe some day I will go back and add some more finishing touches.
  11. Hi Everyone! I'm extremely new to this. I've never tried my hand at painting as a hobby.. let alone miniature painting. But after Bones 3 funded, and my realization that I had several other mini games coming from KS at some point, I started gathering everything I needed to learn how to paint. I bought some stuff i didn't need, and some other stuff that I might need someday. After all the fiddling I wound up with a Reaper Bones: Learn to Paint Kit as a starting point. I had also bought a few bones (20ish random models) through an ebay sale to futz with. Tonight I started painting. I started at 8 and ended around midnight. I tried to follow the directions as close as possible... I made a lot of mistakes... I know they aren't even close to what you guys here can do, but i can't believe how these turned out as my first try! I started with the 77018: Skeletal Archer, and in my grab-bag of bones found a 77144: Mummy which i thought might share a similar palette (eh... kinda) I'm still working on a soft box setup so the lighting and focus are a bit off, but here's the result! The next two models in the kit look significantly harder than the Skele (77042: Orc Marauder, 77150: Ragnaros) but hopefully I can do them justice! If you have any comments or tips i'd really like to hear them! -K
  12. Hello everybody. I just joined the Forum today, and besides posting a pic of my latest painted figure, I wanted to make an introduction. Some of you know me from my "All Bones About It" Blog where I have been posting my efforts in painting all the figures I ordered from the Bones I Kickstarter, and more recently the Bones II one as well. I know a few of you have linked to my blog here before, and I thought it was about time I joined up here myself. :) I've been a gamer and figure painter since the 70's and some of you may know me as well as co-author of the "G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T." set of Victorian Science Fiction miniatures rules, as well as co-author of the Pirate skirmish rules, "Blood & Swash, Thunder & Plunder". Anyway, enough about me, on to the figure... This past week I completed figure 77145, the Mummy Captain. This is the third figure I've completed from the Who's Your Mummy set from the Bones I Kickstarter (The other two can be seen on my blog). I hope to complete the final figure from that set for posting next week. For a step--by-step on how I painted him, you can visit his entry on my blog: Mummy Captain
  13. This weekend I completed the Mummy Lich from the Bones I "Who's Your Mummy" set. This wraps up that set for me, and next week I will be starting on the Heroes set. For the full painting step-by-step, see my Bones Painting blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/06/mummy-lich-figure-158-of-265.html
  14. I picked up this mummy, because it's different from what I've been painting. He was pretty simple and relatively quick compared to the huge pile of game minis that I've been trying to perfect. I typically have trouble going dark enough with my shadows. This time I just covered it in a color that felt way too dark, then lightened it back up with highlights. It's so much easier to try new things when you're not invested in the figure. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out and enjoyed painting him.
  15. Tried a few different styles for these guys. I prefer the two on the left (if you ignore the horrible basing job I did on them).
  16. The Command Group. Carrying the Battle Banner. Mummy Captain, Ghoul Drummer and Zombie Banner Bearer.
  17. And the last one of the Undead Regiment. The Mummy Warrior. Another great vintage mini from Grenadier ( noticed I'm fond of those did you?).
  18. So I finished the Undead Regiment. Background story.. the Vampire Queen lost a big battle, fled to a swamp/jungle area. Subdued the swampfolk and now faces a rebellion. Some swamp creatures follow her, others oppose her. Here is the full regiment. Mixed Manufacturers. Mixed types of Undead. I will post them separatly or in smaller groups for better pics of them all. I will try not to flood the forum, so today the regiment and the first solo/smaller groups. The rest will follow shortly. The Vampire Queens heraldry is red and purple so all the Undead have this colours somewhere. Also as a sign she is mistress of the swamp, her heraldry has a snake in it, variations are found on the shields and banner. Now the horde:
  19. So I started the Stone Giant, but ended up getting bored with him before I got very far. For a change of pace I switched to something simple - the bones mummies. Between Bones I & II I had five of them, which seems a nice amount to start with. They're pretty standard, though I decided to go with blue eyes rather than the red or green as so often seen in DnD art. These guys qualify as a speed paint since I'm sure they each got less than an hour of hands-on time.
  20. These are my February Resolution Challenge figures. I solemnly swear I will find better info on them and get the thread tagged and titled properly on later edits (E2A: nearly there). Last minute, last day, 'what is sitting around on the paint bench that I could finish up?' figures, all of them. So, anyway... ...A mummy, a golem, an archer and a dwarf walk into a bar. 77144: Mummy: He is from Bones II. Slathered in Grey Liner. Wet brushed with a mixture of clay brown leather "Custom Color" and "Ginger Cookie" (which does not look ginger at all) then washed with some much thinned "Brown Liner". 2777: Earth Elemental: This guy (turns out he was not a golem) has been sitting around with only a coat of some brownish spray primer for the longest time. I painted Custom Color mystery brown, Ginger Cookie, and Brown Liner on him until he looked sorta finished. He will need something done to the rest of his base at some point, not sure what. Plastic Archer: This is Miles. A never quite finished GW archer (until the 28th of Feb). 3099: Klaus Copperthumb Dwarf Thief: Klaus is a Reaper figure but he did not turn up using either thief+cloak+dagger OR dwarf+cloak+dagger in the store search. Bit of a disappointment that. I should have tried dwarf+thief+cloak, that would have worked. He was mostly done but needed some touch up where paint had worn away from handling and some extra shading. I don't think I have his cousins Quimby or Lydia.
  21. Great miniature for my undead army.
  22. Getting behind on my posting, so a 3 in 1 show-off today. Today's theme is...mummies. First up are the three standard mummies. I tried to give them each a little color for table gaming purposes. It helps the DM to keep track of "the red one" etc. So all these guys are color-coded. Next up, mummy warriors. Same deal here, their cloth is their identifying colors. And lastly their mummy captain. This guy was fun as I decided to give the meaty parts of him a real exposed muscle look. Tried out that blood red triad on it for the first time and I think I like the triad. Comments and criticism much appreciated. These may not be my best work, but I'm always looking to improve. Thanks!
  23. As one of my many ongoing projects, I'm stripping and repainting some old original HeroQuest minis. I don't have a complete set anymore (gave almost all of mine away, including all the expansions), but recently got a second hand set that had some Testors (or similar) slapped on it, and it makes for a fun project to try to recover lost detail. The dwarf in particular was pretty caked up. Being the iconic White Dwarf model, I took some extra time on him, really trying to elevate what are essentially pretty detailless models by modern standards. The gang: Anyway, pretty easy to say they turned out better than my first attempts at mini painting way back then when I was using toothpicks as brushes and second hand craft paints...
  24. Wasn't sure if I wanted to post this one, I was testing out a color selection and custom base. Then I decided that getting additional input to help improve the next mummy. So base was custom base attempt to paint black marble tiles. Nothing special about the tile support other than an attempt to paint rust effect. Thanks for view and any C&C you feel inspired to give.
  25. To simplify things for me I decided start a separated thread for testing out possible mummy paint colors for my Giant Mummy Diorama. Ordered a pack with my last reaper order but thought I start with the one from my KS1. Mixed some Brown Liner with RMS Matt Sealer to make a wash to bring out the details. Glued down some sand to the base to test out Foundry's Sand color triad as well.
