  1. Two out of three "Victorians" .These are from the Bones 3 kickstarter, Mythos expansion, and called "Victorians". The colour schemes are inspired by the "town walk" outfits of Mina and Vlad in 1992 movie Bram Stoker's Dracula. ...and for some reason these are in a smaller scale than most other reaper minis. 80068 Victorians Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015, Mythos expansion Sculpted by Bob Ridolfi 25mm 3D printed bases available from reapermini.com
  2. The Brass Bull. out of the Bully for you subset in the Bones 2 core set. This is a not-Gorgon from D&D. I do not know why Gygax would call this a Gorgon, since it really has nothing to do with the Gorgon sisters from Greek myth. But what it is, is a massive metal bullock that has a petrifying green gas breath attack. Even though the Gorgon is described as iron, in that it can be rusty, I did it in bronzey brassey colours. I gave it a bit of green around the muzzle to look like some residue from it's halitosis. More beneath the click
  3. nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-BATMAN! Another inbetweener, the Bones 3 Werebat this time. I had some paint left over on my palette (I do like dropper bottles much better than the dry-out-pots citadel uses, but sometimes too much paint comes out and I can't really put it back. More pics beneath the click
  4. This one has been standing around half-painted for a while. The rule 63 Drizzt Do'Urden from Bones 2. This model is quite nice from the front and back, but really flat from the side. Which is typical of originally made for single piece metal casting-minis. Your panther has made a mess of my carpet! Come clean it up! 77217 Mi-Sher, female elf with scimitars Reaper Miniatures, Bones 2 KS 2013 core set Sculpted by Julie Guthrie Bonesium PVC. 30mm lipped base available from reapermini.com
  5. These scenery bits are from the Bones 2 and 4 kickstarters respectively. I did them quick in my go-to rock paint scheme. An uneven coat of dark greengrey over a solid black undercoat, followed by a heavy drybrush with a sandy yellow, and finished with a lighter drybrush of offwhite. Quick and easy! The colours give a much more satisfying rock finish than just using the typical monochrome greys. Too bad the colours are not really showing properly up in the photos. On each end are the Pillars of Good and Evil from Bones 2, the rest is the subset "Grave Things" from the Bones 4 co
  6. The Dragonman something from the Bones 4 core set. This mini actually comes in many parts and with a selection of different weaponry and hand-held things. I went with the bucaneery sabre and dagger on account of the high boots looking a little piratey. Also, this is what the render shown in the KS looked like. I went with a bronze / gold armour and my new darker flock mix. Turned out well in my opinion at least. The base is a 3D printed 35x25mm lipped oval as I thought a 40mm round was too large. B4Core #16 Dragonman (?) Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS 2017 unkno
  7. From WizKids' line of Nolzur's Marvellous Miniatures comes the "Treant", which is D&D-speak for Ent, or Treeman if you are more familar with Warhammer. I find this mini looks angry and scary, not like a benevolent living tree shepherd at all. A malevolent one, on the other hand, fits the bill precicely. And seeing as I have been painting undead halflings and there is a strong historic connection between Halflings and Treemen as allies; so undead treeman. Hence, Torchwood the Furious here. Go on, you know you want to go on:
  8. In the grand scheme of things, this Ogre Palace Guard proxy for Kings of War Vanguard turned out to be a Half-Ogre Fighter when I googled it. Number 4 on the Bones 4 core set graphic, but no official code as of yet. B4Core #4 The casual, brute strength on display straight-arming that shield like that! As you can see, I had problems with the gradient on the shield. Not really satisfied with that at all. He is about the size of an older style Ogre. I rebased him on a 40mm round I printed out. The armour is thick, and the shield is bro
  9. Mat and Pat of the City Guard. Or whatever Reaper calls these minis. So far the only names I have for them is Bones 4 Core set #14 and #15. STOP PRESS: Upon actually checking the internets, it seems that they are already available cast in metal, and called "City Guard (2)". A no brainer, really. They are quite obviously just that. I think I should have done the edging on the lower parts of the tabards differently, the blacklining did not turn out well at all. Looks better unmagnified IRL though. 'Alt raht there Guv'ner. You're not gettin' in 'ere dre
  10. Late last year TTCombat, the wargaming supplies branch of Troll Trader, the large and successful British miniatures shop on Ebay, held a kickstarter campaign called "Halflings and Fantasy Friends". This campaign featured... well, Halflings for the most part (duh!) and also a buch of monsters. All in a cartoony style, in resin and all at suspiciously low prices for a large quantity of minis. As in £60 for over 100 models! In resin! (even though they are halfling sized, that still is insane pricing.) Since TTCombat is well known for making inexpensive but fair-to-good quality stuff (mo
  11. The next batch of little tykes off the 2018 TTCombat Halflings and Fantasy Friends-kickstarter: more pics beneath the click
  12. The subset called "knights" in the Bones 4 core set. These are NPC or henchmen-types. Wait a minuite! Do I really think that just because they have covered faces? Dang! I chose to use plain white capes, loincloths and so forth as a common denominator, which let them all have their own individual livery colours. B4Core #57 B4Core #58 B4Core #59 B4Core #60 B4Core #61 At least the unarmoured fencing instructor has more than a stick this time arou
  13. B4Core #20: Hm. I seem to have merely blocked the cocks. Need some smooth gradient work maybe. I belive this to be a new, digital sculpt for the Bones 4 KS. Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS 2017 Sculpted by ?? Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped base should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future Arnold is a bit on the short side, isn't he? Or is that perhaps Brienne the Beauty's taller sister? I have cut off the integral bases, as I like them all to have similar base styles, and the Bones bases are all
  14. From the Bones 1 core set, a basic lizardman with typically primitive stone spear and turtle shell shield. This mini has good quality details, especially seeing as this is an early softish bones model. 77050 Lizardman Warrior Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012 Sculpted by Ben Siens Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped base available from reapermini.com
  15. Your basic normal-sized wolf: And Black Panther. Alas, the fangs I painstakingly painted in do not show up in the photo. Wolf animal companion Big cat animal companion From the 77216 Animal Companions pack Reaper Miniatures, Bones 2 KS 2013 core set Unknown Sculptor(s), although the wolf makes me think Julie Guthrie Bonesium PVC. 25x50mm oval 3D printed lipped bases available from reapermini.com
  16. B4core #1: This one was a bit of a struggle as I foolishly started from a black undercoat and later decided to do the tabard and shield in white. Bad Idea! Especially when I accidentally managed to paint a black line on the finished white shield....argh! seven coats of white later is can still be seen, albeit faintly. I am not entirely happy with the results around the sheild design, which ended up less sharp than I would like. This is also the same shield design as on the Bones 3 "crusaders" subset and also on Sir Justin Forscale, so apparently they are members of the same knigh

  18. Finishing up the Goblins from the Bones 4 core set. click for close ups and all that
  19. Been painting up my egyptian themed minis. Rebased these guys on some temple looking bases from Dragon Forge that I painted to look more like sandstone. They were fun although the detail on their gold was challenging. Thanks for reading!
  20. A while ago (alright a long while ago) a gameshop was going out of business. One of the last things left on the shelves were a series of Artizan Design pulp characters. The price was right and i was planning a Cthulhu game so i purchased a number of their packs. The game fell through and the miniatures sat in the back of my storage cabinet. But in a fit of wanting to paint something modern, I brought them out and gave them a quick paint job in case i developed a need for a crew of 20's era adventurers. I also had a bit of fun with their posing for pictures and got some much nee
  21. So now that we know who won the Game of Thrones and ended up sitting down... Dragoth the Defiler on Throne. Just look at the strength of that undead overlord! Holding his sword casually in the air with his arm outstretched, Darth Vader-style! This mini is from the second Bones kickstarter core set. I based it on a 50mm round lipped and put some black flock around it. Looks good! This one can also do double duty as a Charnel Throne scenery item for my Age of Sigmar Flesh Eater Courts Army. The sword simply would not stay glued to the skull I placed the tip a
  22. I am the Lord of Darkness. I require the solace of the shadows, and the dark of the night. Sunshine is my destroyer. All this shall change. Tonight, the sun sets forever There shall never be another dawn! -- thus begins the 1985 Fantasy movie Legend, directed by Ridley Scott and starring a very young Tom Cruise and the excellent Tim Curry. If you have not seen this movie, do so right away. A classic Fantasy, in several ways. LEGEND, Tim Curry, as the Lord of Darkness, 1985 pics beneath the click
  23. Delving into the Bones 4 core set, we start by pulling out the 24 bonus goblins that originally were in the Bones 3 core set. And add to them the 12 that I have from the previous kickstarter for a grand total of 36 goblins, 6 each of 6 different sculpts. I actually think I should have a few more of these, as one of the ones I got in the Bones 3 shipment was missing a part, and Reaper sent me a whole pack as a replacement. I wonder where I have put the originals? These are a bit thinner and more weedy sculpts than the Bones 1 and 2 goblins (Reaper makes a lot of Goblins, obviously th
  24. I have not really had the inclination to paint much the last few weeks, such is the way of the world. Picking up the brush again, we start with another one from the first Bones kickstarter that as been cluttering up my painting desk in a half-done state since whenever. The obligatory comparison shot. 77165 Hellakin Gorecutter, Halfling Rogue Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012 Sculpted by Werner Klocke Bonesium PVC. 25mm bespoke 3D printed round lipped base available from reapermini.com
  25. I seem to have rather alot of (20 or so) unpainted Bones left from the three first massive kickstarter campaigns, and a shipment with the bits from the fourth KS picked and packed and underweigh in a container bound for Europe as I write this. Which means that there will soonish be more Bones. Oh yes there will. So, in an extremely ineffectual attempt to at least get a little more of the backlog painted up before the B4 arrives, I picked a few minis at semi-random from the Drawers of Doom™ where I keep most of the prepped minis these days. (There are several (many!) drawers, and a
