  1. Hey all! Need some opinions from you all on this guy: I like the figure, HATE the weapons! Not sure what this fascination with jagged edged blades, but I plan on swapping them out. The question is for what? Now the haft of the weapon in the figure's right hand (Whatever it is...) extends past his elbow to half way up his upper arm. So this leads me to think of it as more of a pole arm than a sword. Maybe not as the haft is 3/4 the length of the blade. Obviously a hand-and-a-half sword if not a 2 hander. The downward slope of his arm, and the way his thumb rests on top of the haft kind of rules out a sword for me anyway, as a sword of the right length would extend below the base, and his thumb is where the hilts would be. Digging through my weapons packs leads me to think that an axe is going to be my best bet, as an axe can be one or two handed, and the wrappings of the haft against his arm would work well on an axe haft. I suppose a mace or hammer could work as well.... I have the axe on the the right hand sprue, the one on the left hand sprue just doesn't seem big enough... And I have the two two-handed axes from the bottom middle sprue I suppose I could use the sword on the right hand sprue, the one next to the quiver, not the odd one... But the length takes it to the middle of the base's height, if not below... And he has no scabbard. So if you had this figure with the sword blade missing, which would you use? What would you do? He also has something in his left hand that looks like he is grabbing a bat and the out stretched wings are blades... What do I put there? As can be seen on the mini, he has daggers in different places, plus a bow and quiver. Do I just make it look like he is holding out a clenched fist??? There is some bit of a handle in his hand... So Ideas, thoughts opinions? I am beginning to sculpt a little bit with green stuff, but a whole weapon is not something to be done with GS from what I have read... But maybe a hammer or mace head? Thanks for looking and thinking! 8) George
  2. Went through my Bones 1 kickstarter box recently and decided to give this guy some color. I'm thinking of using him as a rogue, hence the dark clothes.
  3. The Sentinel He stood upon the outlook, his grizzled features and single eye looking down upon the massive horde of stinkin' orcs that were arraying against his people. He was one of the elite, the Sentinels of his people. He must warn them before it was too late... Figure: Dwarf Ranger, Alliance of the Bat Manufacturer: Norsgard Material: Metal Shield Modification made ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This figure was for an on-the-side exchange with fellow forum member, robinh. We met up this past Saturday night while he was visiting Vegas for a conference and I asked him for a little inspiration. He gave it to me in the form of something that was fun and modded that he could put on his display shelf. He has a running joke with Jasonator about having orange paint on every figure that he does. I took the opportunity to paint his pants orange. Anyhow, here he is! C&C are always welcomed and appreciated, thanks for looking! P.S. I didn't do a whole WIP of this guy as I was under a time crunch to finish him before meeting up with Robin. I did however take a few pics of the WIP on how I did his shield, before I added the design.
  4. I did a quick commission tonight for one of the PCs in my D&D group. Here it is:
  5. My version of Llwellyn Softstrider from Red Box Games. A great sculpt as all other minis in the RBG range. I rushed some parts (the varnishing among them) as I wanted to get it ready for the next weekend but still he turned out nicely.
  6. This is one of six Mouslings I've painted out of the ten new ones from the Bones II Kickstarter. I'm a little ambivalent about the "girly" Mouslings with the bosoms and the hair and the feminine accoutrements. I prefer to think of the Mouslings overall as general-purpose, could be boys or girls. Anyhow, this one, like the rest of them, has fun and not too fiddly details. WIP thread here. Other painted Mouslings: 92743, Archer (Robin Hood), 92744, Druid, 92746, Thief, 92747, Beekeeper, 92749, Assassin
  7. This is one of the new Bones Mouslings from Reaper's second Kickstarter. I painted up six (out of ten) of them for a campaign. Two of them are archers. This one is sculpted up like a tiny Robin Hood. WIP thread here. Other painted Mouslings: 92744, Druid, 92745, Archer (squire), 92746, Thief, 92747, Beekeeper, 92749, Assassin
  8. Here is my attempt at a DSM mini from the KS. After watching the videos I understand blending a little more. Just need a lot more practice at it. C & C encouraged

    Autumn Ranger

    This is Reaper Bones Nienna, Elf Ranger, painted as a display model. There was some frustration about clear detail that would have been allayed, I think, with the metal version of the model, but overall, it worked well. I hope you like her! Work in Progress Thread here.
  10. Hello again! Another mini for you all today. I actually painted this guy up a week ago, but never got around to taking some photos, and have since moved on to another project. This guy was somewhat of a rush job, as my girlfriend's wizard had an unfortunate run in with the business end of an ogre's falchion, and lets just say his head and body had a "parting of ways". So she decided to roll up an good old fashioned elven ranger for the next week. So we had to pick out a new mini, order him, prep, base and paint him up in a week. Not the paint scheme I'd have gone with for this mini personally, it feels a little cliche, but hey, not my character. I'm calling this guy table quality and done for now, I'm really not happy with the highlight work on the sword, and the cape ended up a bit more vivid than I'd envisaged (lesson learned, mix in some white next time!). As always tips and comments welcome (especially any advice on fixing that sword...)
  11. 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
  12. Sebastian was orphaned as a boy in Baldur's Gate when his father was convicted of murder, and sent to the dungeons. The halfbreed son of a human father and elven mother, he never really fit in. He was taken in by a member of The Guild, and educated on the ways of the street. Sebastian proved to be quite the earner. He had an uncanny ability, almost supernatural, of being able to follow a mark virtually invisible. That was until the day he found the wrong mark. Keldrith Riverstride caught the young teen attempting to lift his coin purse. Rather than kill him or turn him in the authorities, he struck up an agreement with young man. Sebastian would work off his debt as a the Ranger's aid. Running errands and keeping his weapons and armor in good repair. Keldrith sensed something special in the young man. Months later, Sebastian would begin his apprenticeship with Keldrith, becoming an expert hunter and tracker. That is a brief, highlighted backstory to the character this model was painted to represent. I chose the green/brown color pallet to reflect the ranger aspect. The sculpt itself shows the rogue aspect. Overall I am happy with the way he came out, though I am not too happy with NMM. I need to work on it more, and get a better understanding of reflected light off of a blade and such. As all always, feel free to comment and critique. I am trying new things, and always learning. (some really great tutorials on the forums) I am not sure how I am going to base him. I am not very good at sculpting, so I may just paint it black, and leave it for now. I need to learn to sculpt some stonework floors or wooden floors. That's further down the road I think. CAH
  13. I had a request from one of the guys I play Pathfinder with (he is a GM for one campaign, and he plays in another). He wanted an elf with a bow to represent his PC in the new Hell's Rebels adventure path we started last week. His only requirements were that it be a male elf with a bow, black hair, and earth tones for the clothes. As you can see, I went with browns for the cloak/robe and green for the cowl. I may do some basing work on it later, but it's ready for the table top at least. I had a lot of fun painting this one! Sorry for the bad quality photos. I can't find my SD card for my actual camera so I'm reduced to using my iPhone.
  14. Work In Progress for RBG: Edele of Aelfheim By Tre Manor This miniature was a commission for my D&D group. I added the flowers as an afterthought but am thoroughly pleased how they came out. I'm getting better with static grass but not where I want to be. Going to do more research. I just had to call it with this piece or I would have never got it done. It turned out well but not as well as I would have liked. I was continuing a new technique I did with a previous miniature. This is the third John (Tre) Manor Sculpt I have painted. I'm fond of his style. Thanks everyone! C&C Welcome! Don't forget to check out my blog - Iron Bristle Studios - for my complete list. The link is in my signature.
  15. Hello, Below is my rendition of Kieron, Ranger. I've had this sculpt for a while now and finally ordered it. He only took about three hours from start to finish. Questions, comments, criticisms, and critiques are greatly appreciated. If you are interested in seeing more of my stuff here is a link to my miniature and terrain blog. http://danceswithhipposterrain.blogspot.com/ Stop by and leave some comments!
  16. Here is one of the crossbowmen for my Warband. He was a lot of fun to paint. This was the first one I tried using sealers in between washes/layers. I am really happy with how he came out. Bloodmane Crossbowman - (Yet to be named) CAH
  17. H'okay, hopefully I've done all this right *worry worry* I'm new to Reaper and to minis in general, and I ended up here on a mission to put together a figure for my Pathfinder character (also super new to Pathfinder). So here's what I've got for her =] I used the legs from the Aries figure as my starting point, then fished out an elven torso and pair of arms from a box of bits my friend has from Games Workshop. Her head is a leftover from an Avatars of War figure he got for his Pathfinder character. Her tail is an offcut from a Games Workshop banner thing. Her lower torso is sculpted in my me, using milliputt and a mechanical pencil, as are her horns and neck (because her head didn't sit right on her shoulders). So yeah, she's my first humanoid paint (prior to her, I've painted all of one warg) =] and while I know she's not perfect, I'm still kind of hugely proud of her, even though I do still need to finish up her base a bit more. Meep *hides*
  18. So when I picked up the LTPK, I also ordered this guy. I have an affinity to rangers, altho by old school rules, my rangers would lose their "good ranger" status and be labeled a fighter.. Anyhow; Officially I painted the skeleton archer 2nd (making Arthal #3), but the skeleton was just so... primitive, I think I spent about 10 minutes on it at the most. Arthal was a pain for me.. Especially around the quiver. Half his face was distorted (thankfully the blindside), dunno if it was a production error for a metal mini or what. I was a little disappointed, but its not terribly noticed unless you look specifically at it head on. At first, I wanted to give him a nice bright white cloak with some goldish color trim work. Well the white paint didn't apply like I wanted, it kept revealing the start and end of brush strokes presenting a blotchy appearance. I may order another down the road just to continue practicing on. I instead opted for a darker, more 'cloak of the bat' feel. The tunic is based in leather brown, with a wash made of viper green mixed with either some pure black & harvest brown to tone the green down, or with 1 or the other.. I forget. I know now why its good to keep a journal of mixtures. Notes: in some spots it looks like white is coming through in spots.. it does not look that way in person. The front of the cloak has highlights on the layers, I did tone it down. Touched up the face & ear Top of the bow was corrected. And the right side of the belt pouch also was touched up. Scout's honor.
  19. 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.
  20. Bjorn the Hunter, a 70mm Dwarf from Basicks is my first not-gaming scale mini. I'll be painting him up for the 54mm Challenge. He's mostly cleaned up, and I've slapped a few pieces together, to see how far I can go before I need to start putting paint on him. He came in 6 pieces: base, body, 2 arms, rifle, and cloak. His cloak covers a LOT of the detail on his back, so I think it will get painted separate. EDIT: Edited because autocorrupt. EDIT v2.0: Edited multiple times because autocorrupt.
  21. This is Bones version of Nienna, Elf Ranger. Most ranger figures I've seen are painted green or brown, but I thought I'd go for an autumn theme and paint her in red/orange/yellow/brown. I started by painting the cloak a rusty burghundy, including all the highlights and shadows as if that was the final paint job. Then I started painting a freehand patchwork leaf pattern. Each leaf is painted individually, which takes a devilishly long time, I've come to discover. This is going to take a long time to finish. And right now she's at one of the those early stages when I can't stand what I'm working on and think it looks terrible. I've been there so many times before, though, that I will push myself to just keep going, in the hopes it will all turn out right in the end. Here she is so far:
  22. During the January Bones Beauty Pageant in addition to a handful of Bones gnomes and halflings, I painted some metal ones as well. This is Woody the Ranger in his red-lined black greatcoat with red toggle buttons. He's also in the Bones II Kickstarter, but this one is metal. I made some attempt to paint one side of his face in shadow but am not sure how successful it was.
  23. So, number two in my Dungeons & Dragons the Animated Series, um, series. This is Enigma's Gavin, Biting Hornet as Hank the Ranger. His greens aren't popping as much as they do off-camera for some reason. As always, C&C welcome! And, as always, I've updated my Index Post.
  24. Alright! Here he is! It's mini #2 for this year... Yup, #2! If I get any faster, I'll blow my chance at last place in the number of minis completed for the year! This piece was assembled for a friend of mine who doesn't have a game piece for when we play Munchkin or whatever. He does now, and I think he came out pretty well for a table top piece. I'm pretty satisfied, although I apparently had some issues with outgassing. I'm guessing the thin super glue that was used to mount the debris on the bottom wasn't quite dry when I put him in the display case. As a result, I had a slight cloudy area where he was sitting, and the coin has taken on a frosty looking patina. I suppose it works, but from now on, everyone's staying OUTSIDE of the display case overnight, just in case. Okay! Here's what I tried to work on with this piece: 1. Freehand - I attempted a plaidish pattern on his bedroll. It gave me fits. I do believe that I will have fits with freehand the rest of the year as it's one of the main things I plan on working on. I also attempted a bit on his lower tabard (?), but I ended shading it down to make it look worn as I couldn't quite get it right. At any rate, I'm working towards getting better in this area. 2. The Coin Base - I'm trying to expand my basing experience. I really enjoy basing and got this idea from Massive Voodoo and decided to try it. Unfortunately the coin got the weird patina, which I think works, but I would've preferred to have it "prettier." Also, coins are hard to drill through.... at least this one was! Willen was kind enough to do some research on the origin of the coin, which can be read in the WIP of this piece. 3. The Trap - Will Harsk notice the spikes before it's too late? Will he make his saving throw? Who knows! At any rate, the trap was a happy accident. The bricks I used were strangely shaped bricks from Secret Weapon that I've had for a while. They looked great around the coin as they're curved, but don't work well at all for making a solid form radiating out from the coin. I played with different configurations, until I found a pattern I liked with squarish spaces between them. It looked like a perfect pressure plate booby trap opportunity, so I drilled (used an awl really) holes in the spaces and stuck toothpick points through them. Instant spike trap! The rest of the thing is made up of a wooden checker, matte board, a cork to glue the board to, and milliput to make up the earthen base. Of course there's flock (which is still shedding, according to the pics) and Army Painter plants for fun! The underside of the platform is potting soil or whatever it was the kids brought home in those plant projects that never seem to sprout... Anyhoo, here's Harsk, in all his rangering glory: He was fun to paint, and I hop Toph enjoys him! Please leave C&C and let me know what you think. I may drag him along to ReaperCon if Toph will let me. Now I can finally move on to the Spring Exchange and a new diorama for ReaperCon. Hope to see y'all there! -K P.S.: NO, I did not purposefully ruin the plant projects. They'd been sitting around for a year or so before I even used some of the soil. LOL!
  25. 03190: Blacktongue, Gnoll Ranger By John (Tre) Manor The WIP: 03190: Blacktongue, Gnoll Ranger Brothers Of Tooth And Claw Sige -------- Barton -------- Pa'oul -------- Dagmar Dust of the Colosseum - Part 3 I was sitting on the opposite end when he sprinted to a stop after the gates rose. Before the dust could settle he was already reaching for an arrow. We had never seen a beastman archer before but then again no one had ever seen what had happen that day. That bow of his, black as night. They say it was made from the root of the elder tree in the Nether forest. But I think it was his eyes that capture the attention of the crowd; piecing ebony stare. After he let fly his first arrow the crowd yelled out his name, “SIGE, SIGE, SIGE!†The sound of his arrows screaming across the battleground made him a crowd favorite. It was truly freighting to think of an entire pack of these fellows hunting you. Name prononcation: [siig] like signature _____________________________________________________________ *White balance only* Thanks for all the encouragement. I feel the force growing in me! How does everyone feel I am progressing? C&C Welcome!
