  1. For my exchange partner this time around I was assigned Traxia. So if you are reading this and haven't opened your package, stop now! When going through Traxia's answers to the questionnaire, the moment I saw "Chronoscope" I knew what I was going to paint even though it's not made by Reaper. Maow makes affordable resin minis in limited runs and I just so happen to have a few of them. One in particular is the awesome steampunk figure "Johnny Rocket." There were only 400 made, but if you want one there are still a few left out in the wild. Better hurry though, before another forumite g
  2. Hi! Today i finished Lem for my friends birthday, miniature is for our d&d campaign. Base from microartstudio, and gold is nmm. Very nice miniature for painting. Comments are welcome.
  3. A few months ago I attended a little two-day workshop, which was hosted by a talented Swedish commission painter named Martin Lindblom (http://amongtheway.com). This little event was sooo much fun for me, it's actually the first time I've ever painted in the company of others, and I'll certainly try to attend more of these types of things in the future. The workshop was centered mostly around two themes: "NMM" and "skin tones", and everyone got to bring their own mini. I chose Wolf, a mostly naked dude with a big sword from Hasslefree Miniatures. This was the first time I attempted NMM, an
  4. This mini is 03226: Parraway Ambercane, Gnome Druid. I started him in January, then spent a semester abroad without my paints and minis. This is the first mini I finished up after I got back. He has a few pieces of NMM, which I think turned out more or less okay, but I'm really proud of his face and skin. Apologies for picture quality; it's just from an iPhone.
  5. Hi, first post. I'm going to start posting pics of my Reaper miniatures here. I'll start with Gossamer.
  6. Trying to do nmm on this large miniature and struggling. Tips comments unrelated thoughts are welcome
  7. Hi, I had few free days from work and witcher 3 and finally i finished seltyiel. It was hard project because two new effects: light (i made light only once before with piór result) and nmm. Its not perfect painting but very good lesson:). I hope you will enjoy him. All comments are welcome, especially about oSL and nmm.
  8. I've played around a bit with NMM on a couple of minis, but earlier this month I decided to sit down and really make an effort at it. For my test subject eager volunteer I chose Sir Conlan. He seems a good mini to practice NMM metal on since he has most of the upper body armor but not a lot of fiddly bits to worry about. Those of you interested in the boring bits already dropped by my WIP so we'll just skip to the pictures. I know one of the reasons people do NMM is for photography and it looks like it's about time for me to start reading up on the shutterbug section. Just for fun
  9. Well, I may still add some more sculpted leaves to the base and fiddle with the reflection in terms of making it look "shiney" but for now, I present my crazy mad scheme of a project. I started working on this back last summer and it has languished on my desk through fits of irritation with the reflection, me bemoaning the use of monochrome and how it prevents me from doing the sneaky glazing trick, etc, etc. I could consider her done and probably sleep better at night! This is Reaper's 54 mm Master Series Finari, sculpted by the awesome but infamous Werner Klocke. I love this sculpt
  10. My first attempt at NMM.
  11. OK. I "gave" this mini to my brother-in-law for Christmas two years ago. I told him I'd paint it as soon as I could... I just added the photos. I wasn't planning on doing WIP, but it will be my first real delve into NMM, and I'm going to need help, as I don't have LTPK3. My inspirations for the color scheme are from my brother-in-law: Favorite color is Red. I'm basically done with the cloak except the fur. It's shadowed with a mix of Splattered Gore and Brown Liner, and goes all the way up to Blood Red. I tried to make his freehand gold trim line on the inside of the cloak l
  12. Something I started in mid-2014 as an experiment with shading, on the scroll. I got bored and finished it up in early January. The canister on a chain I've interpreted as something akin to D&D/PF's "Soul Jar", so it's got a bit of a bluish light to it. I tried to make it look like a faint point, and had a little bit of success I think. Everything on this guy is dark--a lot of it is more apparent on a darker background which I have very unhelpfully not provided--but I still kinda wonder if that soul jar should be a little brighter. Although the shading follows the contours of his robe,
  13. I speed paint a lot for tabletop, and this was one of those. I've been using tabletop paints as excuses to work on my NMM and I was pretty happy with the blending on the sword. I was okay with how the shield turned out, and I liked the scales on her scale-mail-dress (or whatever it was supposed to be). Less-so with the banding on the... suspenders, I guess? And I totally lost the bands on her upper arm--the texture for them kind of vanished on the lower side of her arm. Not sure if it was just bad luck with the casting of the mold, or if I used too thick paint. (If I have to ask, it's probably
  14. Here is my painted rendition of Staunton Vhane, a dwarf with some fancy armor, a fancy weapon, and a very bad outlook. He serves Deskari, the demon-lord of locusts. I sculpted the figure based on the painting by Wayne Reynolds from the cover of Pathfinder Adventure Path #84 [edit: #74], "Sword of Valor": http://static1.paizo.com/image/product/catalog/PZO/PZO9074.jpg After I took the first photos of the "finished" figure, I decided that I didn't like the more muted salmon-pink/brown of the base, so I punched up the color with some glazes of purple, red, and orange. Now it is more cons
  15. True Metal Metallics vs Non Metal Metallics I found this blog post very informative and thought provoking. I'm solidly on the side of TMM over NMM and have been for a while now, but reading what a pro like Meg Maples says about it is really interesting. Also curious what the rest of the community has to say about their preferences after reading this post.
  16. It has been months since I picked up the brush to paint for more than 15 to 30 minutes at a sitting. Now that I have a health issue managed and under control, I can finally get back to painting! I have a list of projects I would like to finish by the end of the year, so I'm working on a piece or two to get back into practice. I have long admired NMM, so I decided to give it a go and see if I can learn the technique. Turanil has a variety of surfaces to practice my blending, so here we go. I started in on his cloak, working with a base coat of carnage red, followed by shading with deep red
  17. I am painting up my bones Ape-X based on inspiration from this picture http://www.deviantart.com/art/White-Gorilla-270784101 and I want to try NMM on him as well. I do have the L2PK3 on NMM, but I have only read the instructions. Since there is only a little metal on this figure, I can take my time to get it right. So far I have only done base coats. The armor hand will be a red metal and the gun a blue metal and the other metal parts chrome. Depending on how this goes, I might do OSL on the cyber eye as well.
  18. So this is a rat pack poison pot thrower. I spent a while doing the nmm part yesterday. When my wife just calmly looked up from her book as I eagerly thrust it in her face for a critique She said, "looks nice." SO i guess i wanted the opinion of some fellow painters about the shadows on the barrel. If I draw a dark line under the shadows and add another reflection will that actually help? Do I need to define the main shadow along the big barrel more? Does the weathering make sense? What does it all mean?
  19. I've been painting up a few batches of minis for a client out in Oregon. This happens to be the 2nd Cloud Giant (by the wonderful Julie Guthrie btw) that I have painted. The first was my own. My client told me to go nuts on him, so I decided to bust my butt on him using nothing but NMM for his weapons and armor. She has since seen the pics and told me it was, in her words "Magnificent" and "Fantastic". So, having already had my ego stroked, I shall toss him to your critiques and judgments O Reaper Forum Folks! LOL He took me about 10 hours to paint, most of them spent on the "bronze" of his
  20. Here is the fine undead captain from Super Dungeon Explore. I rather enjoyed painting him- especially the trimming. He turned out just a bit darker than most of my SDE, but I feel that this is working well with the undead feel. I'll have to give someone pink hair to make up for it.
  21. I've been fascinated with NMM since I first saw it. How does one make regular colors look like metal?! I've delved into NMM every once in awhile, but never with what I consider great NMM. This is no exception for me, but it's getting a wee bit closer. :) Duke Gerard here is from the first Bones KS and my 4-5th try at NMM. C&C not needed (I know what needs work and I'm working on those areas on other models), this is mostly for the new painters and for painters struggling with NMM. Cause even I'm still doing so and I've been painting for over 13 years now. So enjoy and take what y
  22. Well, I posted up my squad Lorenzo as I painted them up. But when I finished off Squad Gideon, they didn't get photographed right away. So, here they are. I had a bit of a block going into this set, as I wanted to have something subtle show the difference between the two squads, without making them look like they were from a different chapter. In the end I chose to make all of the jewels a different color (Lorenzo's squad has blue jewels, rather than the green ones here). Also, I updated my Librarian Calistarius. I had originally painted him with metallic metals, and wit
  23. I just got back from taking a brief hiatus. It actually lifted last week after I decided to repaint my level 32 Warblade and a friend commissioned me to paint his character (he tried to pay me... I refused. I hate taking money from friends :) They always get FREE commissions! :D My specialty! I just like seeing them happy :D) Anyway, the first is Freja Fangbreaker (the bone version). This is the 2nd time I've painted this figure; the other being 3-4 years ago. She has an enlarge insert with both an earth magnet in the base itself and in the miniature base. I've been doing the enlarge inser
  24. Hello/ This is my first post here, as i paint Reaper minis not so often, although i bought almost all girls from master series. But here she is, Monique de Noir, riding her chocobo mount =) You can vote here, if you liked this work http://www.coolminiornot.com/332099 And here you can see closeups and detail pics http://www.coolminiornot.com/332101 Hope you`ll like her.
  25. OK so here is my finished take on Bertok. I'd love to get feedback on the NMM, its attempt number 4 at the technique and I still don't think I've got it right. Strangely there are some spots on him where I think I've done (by accident) an ok SENMM.
