  1. Here's an orc I put up in the WIP forum a while back. He was primarily an experiment in skin tone, but I'm really happy with the way his belly armor turned out, too.
  2. This guy was fun to paint. He looks fierce. When I took a picture of him with my flash on he looked radioactive.
  3. Here's a mild-mannered experiment I slapped together tonight. I feel I'm pretty timid when it comes to pushing skin highlights, but go too far with shadows, so I spent some time just *playing* at roughing in colors on this Bones Black Orc. Objective: don't think too much, don't worry about doing a "good" job, and push the limits of what you're comfortable with in terms of highlights. Worked straight from the palette, mixed as I went, and didn't fuss around with layering, glazing or washing. This is where I ended up. Enjoyed myself immensely, even if it's not very pretty. Comments and constructive criticism are very welcome -- color choices, shadow and light placement, etc. are what I'm working on here.
  4. So just got this one done this morning, a Ral Partha Shaman, one of the figures that will be with the Chaos Wars Kickstarter from Ral Partha. I definitely have a spot here on this one that I'm not happy with, but hopefully if I don't glaringly point it out, nobody would notice.
  5. I bought this guy as the model for one of my players. I haven't decided what I'm doing with the base yet (other than "I'm going to do something with the base" - I boiled it into shape before painting but after I had paint all over the model it decided to curl up and get wobbly again) but the rest of it is starting to take shape. I decided to go with the dark elf triad for skin colour, just because it seemed like fun. Here are pics: I know I need to work on the highlights on the leather parts (especially on the lower body) and fix a few goofs with the metallic paint... Aside from that, what would you folks suggest? Anything I've done wrong, anything you think I've done particularly well? I'm guessing the eyes don't fall into that last category... But I'm making progress! I'd personally be quite happy with him as is (well, with the base & touch-ups) as a pretty decent tabletop model, but I know that a lot of you have higher standards than that and I'd love to get to that point. So... yeah. Tell me where I can do better!
  6. Hi everyone, I've been lurking over recent weeks on these forums, after hearing about the Bones 3 kickstarter reignited my interest in painting miniatures. I did a bit of miniature painting about 15-20 years ago, largely for D&D games (painting Ral Partha figures), and still have a pile of leftover unpainted figures. So after I came across the Reaper Learn To Paint Kit, I decided to dive back in and have a go. I've now finished the three LTPK figures, and done a few of my old Ral Partha items. Learning to paint is sooooooo much better these days, having access to all of the discussions in these forums, and other tutorials online. I've already been able to try several new techniques that I had no way of finding out about all those years ago - even things like wet palettes, and how to take a half-decent photograph. I did the three LTPK figures first - pretty much solely following the painting guidelines in the set. I was very pleasantly surprised at how these turned out - especially the orc's skin and leather armour. This is a bariaur from the Ral Partha Planescape boxed set. Very pleased with his fur and horns. Eyes need lots more practice. No idea where this ranger figure originally comes from - a friend ask me to paint it for his character in our D&D game (a game that ended in 1999... so I'm only running a little bit late). Got to have a go at some basic layering on his cloak, but the eyes still a problem. This ghost came from the Ral Partha Ravenloft Castles Forlorn boxed set - just a chance to practice some gradual colour changes - need to try using some (washes? glazes?) to smooth the transitions, presumably. Anyway, thanks to everyone who regularly posts on these forums - I've been finding it all amazingly useful to get back into the hobby, get the right gear, and learn some new techniques. And in so many cases, a really good inspiration on where I can improve. Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks, Stu
  7. Hi all, I picked up two of the James Wappel videos at Reapercon, and I've attempted to put into practice what I picked up in the Shaded Basecoat video. Anval Thricedamned is as close of a Reaper mini as I could find to the Raging Heroes Gormakk Orc Warmaster. All paints used were identical to the video. It turned out OK given that most everything I did was experimental for me. Looking at the model in-hand and in the pictures, I see a lot that could be done better. Deeper shadows on the muscles would help. The hands and red armor are a mess as I went a little crazy with the washes. But, it was a worthwhile experiment
  8. This is actually two questions, but they are related. Feel free to answer either one or both: If you were going to paint a goblin mini like a small orc, how would you do it to make the goblin look orcish? If you were going to paint a orc mini like a big goblin, how would you do it to make the orc look goblin-y? Are they not both green? Is there a difference between what kind of green they are? If you painted a goblin orc-green, wouldn't he just look like a goblin--the difference in skin color being...either negligible or essentially indistinguishable? What other things could you do with paint to identify one as the other? (I've got duplicates of both orcs and goblins. And I was thinking if I just painted some like the other that would give me a greater variety of models for each. But then I got stumped on how to do that exactly. A goblin-green orc is just going to look like an orc. Maybe this idea is not as good as I originally thought.)
  9. An Orky (GWorkshop Orc with two weapons) A Muddy Hedge Wizard Reaper 02905: Arthur Wanderhat A Ghost Knigget (GWorkshop Knight of the Realm) A Saffron Skink (GWorkshop Lizardman model) Yet another archer (GWorkshop Bretonnian) A GWorkshop Cold One Raptor Dinosaur Strangely these look better in the photo than in real-life. I am reasonably pleased with the big lizard. Some of the others the camera is being kind. I will try to get more pics Saturday. Link to June Page: Resolutionary Challenge
  10. Hi all! I'm new to this forum, but not to fantasy miniature painting. I don't really know what to say right now so I'll let a couple pieces of my wok speak for themselves: 77002: Orc Archers (Bones) 02566: Fiona, Female Druid
  11. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2087444096/stonehaven-peacekeepers-oath That was fast! It looks like Stonehaven is finally Kickstarting their oft-threatened wargame, including options for all their previously released miniatures!
  12. EDIT: I APOLOGIZE FOR NOT PUTTING THE PIX IN SPOILER TAGS...NOT SURE HOW TO. Good evening everyone! These are the first miniatures I have ever painted. I picked up the Bones Learn to Paint Kit a month ago or so and painted two of the 3 minis that came with it (the skeleton came broken) and then decided to pick up 3 more off of ebay and have painted 5 total to date. I was looking for a hobby and I stumbled across this site and read everything about minis and what not and decided to give it a try. I added the model #'s in the topic for the ones I remembered. The first mini I started with was the Armored Knight, followed by the Orc, then the Large Earth Elemental, Hell Hound and then finally the Pathfinder Dragon. Hoping to get some feedback on any/all of them as it would be much appreciated. Below are some pics, both with flash off and flash on for comparison. The only paints I used where the ones that came with the painting kit...some I mixed together or thinned out etc... I don't have a table to paint on (I'm not painting on my polished coffee table! nor do I have a fancy white background (or rather just some white paper =P) so I used a white shirt for the backdrop. Some things I noticed after I took the pics and along the way, these of which I still need to do, are: Paint the teeth on the Orc, paint the claws and wing bones of the dragon, fix the bone colored mark on the Hell Hound's left rear leg, eyes on the armored knight. Anyways, hope their good!
  13. I originally posted the WIP over here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60174-mage-knight-orcs-conversionrepaint/?hl=%2Bmage+%2Bknight+%2Borcs Two of them are still being worked on, but I finally finished this guy off.
  14. Hi! I made 8 orcs and goblins for umbra turris, polish skirmish game, its my second comission, and first greenskins in my career:). I would say they are made in tabletop + standard, it was about 16 hours of work.
  15. I'm just getting started on this, posting a new thread to motivate me to stay on top of things. Internet is a bit slow today, so hopefully I'm not straying too far from the new guidelines. I'll post pictures when my internet is better The Orc Berseker will be an experinent in the Ollie Kickflip layering/blending method... so the reverse of my other orcs. I'm also using different colours for the skin - a more olive-y scheme. I'm going to base him the same way as my other orcs, all at the same time, so I'll probably do a show-off thread with all of them. The Tiik warrior will be a tester for some ideas for my Kraken from the Bones II kickstarter. Incidentally, somewhat similar to the paint job for the tiik champion. The Ranger Michelle, is a mini I'm painting for my gf, her colour scheme on request. The Ferocious feline is inspired by our cat Moose (who you can see in my avatar). Considering my schedule, I think I will be lucky to finish these this year, but I really hope I can.
  16. This is my first time posting stuff online. I am still fairly new to the miniatures hobby, but I dove in head first and started collecting and grabbing up all the minis (old and new that I could). This is my first big non-gaming use piece. I am still learning different terrain techniques, but I thought it would be a fun use of some old Kings of War white metal minis that I didn't plan to use for gaming. Sorry I am not a great photographer. I am sure that is something I will get used to as I photograph more of my projects. details, details (mostly done with repoduced bitz)
  17. Here are some quick tabletop paint jobs of the big Bones orcs. I am calling this my red orc squad, I will probably use blue or green accent color on my second, still unpainted set. Group shot with the previously finished Orc Berserker (77059) on the far left:
  18. Looks like a Villain, but maybe he has a pure heart. Who knows? Do skulls on your armor automatically make you evil?
  19. Here is another set of Bones models that have set on my painting table for quite a while. These are some nice models, detail a bit soft on the face. As always comments welcome.
  20. Just to stop people thinking I don't paint Reaper models, here are two additional Orcs I have been slowly painting, I may have got a bit keen on these models (purchased 2 Orcpocalypse sets !!) The detail is a bit soft but they are more then ideal for tabletop monsters. As always comments welcome.
  21. Recently got my Bones 2 kickstarter in the mail, pretty impressed with it, overall! Got to painting straight away, picked out some of the cooler looking minis to start with. First up we have Rogan the Orc Thief next I painted Rugg the Bugbear. Almost looks like a leader, so I have painted him slightly different than I intend to paint the rest of the bug bears. Colour scheme I got from another post here.
  22. These are a couple of miniatures that I meant to finish quickly but wound up spending a bit more time on. Orc Berserker. Most just quickshading but some extra attention paid to the skin. Quite happy with the result and will try to do the same with the the other bones orcs. Grave Wraith. Not much more than black + dry brush. I tried to do some OSL but I failed. It just wasn't to be this time. Labella Dermonay, Banshee. I really like this figure and I tried the "prime white and add lots of washes" technique I read about on these forums. I'm really happy with the result. Night Spectre. Same "trick" as Labella, except with green instead of blue. Didn't work out as well but in the end it resulted in a finished mini.
  23. For the last 3-4/4 for the Feb RP Challenge, 2x of the Orc Marauder as seen in the LTPK. Somethin' feels a little off in the finished product but I can't tack down just what yet Better pics will likely come when I get time to setup/use my lightbox.
  24. For 2/4 of the FebRPChallenge, I painted up Kavorgh in the guidelines of the LTPK. Not -entirely- pleased with how he came out, especially the eyes, but I've determined I need brushes that hold their points better now...
  25. Just wondering if anyone else ever had any trouble getting 77059 Orc Berserker to stay standing up? He seems top-heavy.
