  1. Sadly I don't quite remember what paints were used, other than them being metallics... I suspect they might have been some of the Citadel paints I've picked up, since I wanted to try them out and see what my thoughts were on such paints. Done back in April, they've been sitting on the desk for, uhm, a while... >.>;;;; They were fun little robots to paint....
  2. This minis was a kickstarter exclusive from the Mantic Kings of War second edition campaign in 2014. "Blaine" is a Mantic mascot of sorts. and there has been a version of him in all their own IP kickstarters apart from the vey first Kings of War. So here is him as the Fantasy Tyrant King. A resin special mini, there were some problems with delivery and I heard several backers never got their Blaine for some reason or other. I have not really had any delivery problems to speak of from any of the many Mantic kickstarters I have backed, and I obviosly got my Blaine with my shipment at the time. I used a bespoke 3D printed 25x50mm oval base, In retrospect I probably should have gone with a slightly larger base as it does seem a little small. This picture illustrates the smaller Mantic truscale as opposed to the larger Reaper heroic scale. Tyrant King Blaine on Raptor from the Kings of War second edition kickstarter, 2014 Mantic Entertainment Resin, multipart 25x50mm base Kickstarter exclusive model
  3. Back in 2013 I came across a kickstarter campaign called "Heroes of the Dwarfs" by a small start up company called Oathsworn. The creator sculpted the models himself, and the greens on display were very oldhammery and full of character. I went in for a massive three minis, being a bit cautious at the time, what with this being a new company and all. They delivered in a timely fashion, the minis were great quality, and I have backed 13 out of 14 of Oathsworns campaigns since then. They continue to crank out the good stuff. They are on my short list of trusted creators, A+ will back again. Ingrid Deathseeker is basically your female beardless Trollslayer. I used one of my bespoke 3D printed 25mm round lipped bases for her. Ingrid Deathseeker from the Heroes of the Dwarfs kickstarter, 2013 Oathsworn Miniatures Sculpted by Michael Lovejoy metal, single piece casting 25mm base
  4. From the second Bones kickstarter, the Sea Hag: A very simple but effective paint job. I started with a black undercoat with a heavy-ish light grey zenithal primer on. I slapped some Vallejo Nocturna Natural Flesh on the lower rags and Scale75 Arbuckles Brown on the top rags. Then I sloshed CItadel Athonian Camoshade all over it, drawing off most pooling to avoid those tidemarks. Very light drybrysh with Vallejo Nocturna Cold Flesh when dry. The hair got a coat of Vallejo Nocturna Pale Flesh followed by Army Painter Dark Tone Quickshade Ink. Eyes get a dot of Citadel Wazdakka Red followed by a smaller dot of Citadel Flash Gitz Yellow. Base and done. Even though this mini is billed as a Sea Hag and she does have a slight fishy look about her, I am thinking she will be joining my Ghoul army as some sort of subleader. "Who be this tender morsel? Come to Meg, juicy boy! What a fine fat boy you are!" 77276 Sea Hag Reaper Miniatures, Bones 2 KS 2013 Sculpted by Julie Guthrie Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped base available from reapermini.com
  5. Just a few more pieces that I completed over the memorial day weekend. The problem with these show offs is I don't usually get to post them until after the thread wraps up... Fun to paint and a really great sculpt, I didn't do the piece justice but I do like how it turned out. It did give me a chance to practice my flame and yellows and reds. Hope you like it too!
  6. Adamantite Golem from the defunct Fantasy skirmish game Chronopia, from the end of the 1990s. Chronopia was produced by Target Games, who also made Warzone, and was in it's day the only company that might have given Games Workshop a run for the money. Not that the games sold anywhere near the levels of the GW games, but the style appealed greatly to fans of Warhammer and Warhammer 40k especially since the miniatures where made in the heroic scale that was comparable to GW minis of the day, Target was very aggressive at marketing towards independent game stores that needed something to offset the dominance of GW building up sales in an area then moving in and sucking up the sales by opening a Games Workshop next to the independent (whereupon shipments from GW to said independent stores suddenly would experience problems with shipping and fulfilment, you know all the stuff that had plausible deniability to mess with the independent and making the customers go to the official GW next door for their new models.) This happened a lot and many indepentent stores were left with the short end of the stick, all over the world. Target came at a time ripe to offer a competing games system and miniatures to these indepentent shops that desperately needed something to fill the void. So the games rapidly caught on and was building it's following when Target Games went down in flames in the year 2000. ...Just when it was getting good, it all went away. Argh! At any rate, they left behind a legacy of lots of great miniatures (and a few bad ones to be honest). I have a few in my collection from back in the day, and I have traded for many more in recent years. Here is the Adamantite Golem, a fearsome warrior construct for the Elven faction. The elves of Chronopia were spiky, and not exactly light side in this game, consorting with demons, riding dragons and taking slaves. Big armoured magical robot thingy with a massive hammer to smite with. I collected Devout (=chaos), Dwarves and Blackblood (orcs etc) player back in the day and never had more than a handful of Elven minis as I simply did not like most of them. This one however, is nice. For some reason I did not get it back then. Adamantite Golem Chronopia, Elves faction, released sometime between 1997-1999 Sculpted by Alex Hunter Metal, two piece casting (main body and backpack) 40mm base For some reaon it reminds me of The Mountain, version 2.0.
  7. A more greek-inspired Minotaur than most others I have seen. So, bronze and leathers. Theseus channeling Conan. 77501 Minotaur Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015, Stoneskull expansion Sculpted by Chris Lewis Bonesium PVC. 50mm round lipped base available from reapermini.com
  8. Merisiel, Iconic Rogue from the Bones Pathfinder line, and the first Bones kickstarter. Soft bones, soft details pretty much sums it up. So this got a very quick paint job. Nothing to be especially proud of, but here it is. 89009 Merisiel, Iconic Rogue Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012, Pathfinder Iconics subset Sculpted by Patrick Keith Bonesium PVC 25mm bespoke 3D-printed base available from reapermini.com
  9. Thank you @Xiwo Xerase for naming this mini. It is in the reapermini.com shop, turns out it just does not have "elf" as a search term... I thought this elf was female, but no. That is elves for you. In any case, gender really does not matter anyway for most things other than procreation. (edit: ze has swapped gender from metal version to the bones version, and is now sold as "Elf Heroine" in bones and "Vale Swordsman Elven Grunt" in metal.) Some Elf with a sword 77409 Fiara, Elf Heroine Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015, Core set Sculpted by Werner Klocke Bonesium PVC 25mm bespoke 3D-printed base I could not find this one in Bones at reapermini.com so I do not know what it is supposed to be called or what it's code is. Has it been discontinued or is it just an oversight? Was it ever released to retail in Bones? It is available in metal though.
  10. 77031 Cassie, Gnome Wizard Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012, Core set Sculpted by Werner Klocke Bonesium PVC 25mm bespoke 3D-printed base available from reapermini.com
  11. Formorian Giant aka The Great Mutato! (Did they spell Fomorian wrong on purpose? Fomorians being monstrous, supernatural creatures from the underworld of Irish mythology, much like the Jotun frost giants of Norse) From Bones 3 core set, this Chaos mutant thingy takes the medal for overtraining half of his body. I imagine his (her?) family tree is a straight line. 77416 Formorian Giant Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015, Core set Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Bonesium PVC. 50mm round lipped base available from reapermini.com
  12. This figure is the Reaper 3718 Ghostbride in metal. I wanted to do some white practice on her, and she is probably my most artsy figure, considering she has a purple base and not some mundane colored ground. I tried to have her be very white, with the white being on top of different base colors, but at the same time have the purple come up from the base. Mostly happy with her. I had planned on having her hair be blond, but the dark hair just popped so nicely against the pale skin. As a bonus, she did see some game time in our last session as the ghost of a young woman killed by her jealous fiance. Her father became a vampire to try to bring her back to life.
  13. These are the plastic Wyrd 20620 Wild Boars (Ulix). I picked them for a quick tabletop paint job. Unlike many of the Wyrd plastic minis these where easy to glue together. May they eat many adventurers, but no more druids... One of my early characters, a level one druid, was killed by a wild boar in the very first playing session after she failed her animal handling roll. In the decades since, any time I see see a nasty pig figure I say that is the one that killed my druid. So one of these nasty critters is surely the one!
  14. I had used a bunch of leftover paint for the Reaper bones version of Aviriel Tellerion (77070), and those colors where more in the "evil spectrum" so I switched her over to being a dark elf. Very happy with how her face turned out, sadly she is looking down so you cannot really see it on the table. It has been a while since I posted, I have had a slump in my desire to paint this spring and I tend to wait until I have a bunch to show off to get the light box out. Avirion here was painted in March.
  15. So this is the bones version of Thain Grimthorn the Dwarf Cleric (77213). I was stuck on painting him for a long time, I had started with a normal skin tone, but it just didn't click for me. Then I had the epiphany that since it was unlikely that someone would pick him as a PC was very low, so I should paint him as an evil dwarf instead. I am much happier with him now. Here I present Thain the evil dwarf:
  16. Just a quick speed paint to boost my painted numbers. These where painted back in March. The are all pumped up to pound some adventures. I do find it funny the similar stance for being created by 3 different manufacturers. Castle Creations BP-15 Earth Elemental: Bomshell Miniatures 60028 Roknak, Earth Elemental: Frostgrave FGV306 Stone Construct:
  17. Freja Fangbreaker. On the topic of female, form fitting armour, it turns out that the upper chest area of female dwarves is invulnerable to all kinds of piercing and slashing weapons, so it does not need any armour! Ain't it great? Presumably the prominent devils dumplings act as bumpers and the impressive cleavage does not at all act as a funnel for spears? Seriously though, this is a first Bones KS model, made in the softer early Bonesium. And still it has rather good detail, only slightly shallow on the quilting on the back and on the lower right hand arm armour. Which goes to show that on larger figures that has deeper details (A dwarf counting as larger? Maybe I should say wider?) Bones is a good material. 77073 Freja Fangbreaker Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012 Sculpted by Werner Klocke Bonesium PVC 25mm bespoke 3D printed base
  18. The Whispering Tyrant from the second Bones kickstarter. This is an officially licensed Pathfinder miniature. So I guess it is some sort of evil adversary in some adventure or other in that game. For me, this is Loki. I expect you see why. To make the model even more similar to the trickster god, I cut off the central helment-thing and carved the helmet round. Which took me whole tens of seconds! Bones material is really easy to cut and convert. I will miss this aspect with the Bones Black minis. On this mini I have tried out some new colorshift paints from Green Stuff World and a flip paint (which is supposed to get the same effect) from Instar. I probably did not do it right, as I don't think it has much of a colorshifting effect (there is a slight effect, though). The instructions say to use a gloss black undercoat and many, many thin layers to get the effect. I did not do that. On a brown basecoat I used GSW Mystic Gold colorshift, and Instar Green Gold Flip, with GSW Tropical Green at the tips and edges. and I just glooped it on! Two or three thick coats of each paint is used here. So next time, maybe I should try actually following the instructions... Anyhow, this model will make a good leader for my undead legions, or even a C'Tan for the Necrons. 89031 Whispering Tyrant Reaper Miniatures, Bones 2 KS 2013 Sculpted by Bobby Jackson Bonesium PVC 40mm round lipped base
  19. Labella DeMornay, Banshee from the first Bones kickstarter, This is a green translucent, and like all translucents I undercoated it first with Army Painter Anti Shine Matt Varnish, so the following washes would have something to adhere to. This is key to painting translucents. Also, make sure to use transparent paints, like inks and quickshade washes. Opaque paints will invariably ruin the translucent effect. The green tinge of the plastic will affect any transparent colours that are used, and so this must be taken into consideration. For her brown hair, I used Citadel Carroburg Crimson shade (a dark red). The skin is Citadel Casandora Yellow Shade, the dress is old Citadel Blue glaze (red flip-cap hex pot) and ditto Turquoise glaze. Taking care to draw off any pooling and to avoid unsightly tide marks by smoothing with a damp brush while wet. The aim is to tint the translucent plastic, not sp much paint over it, or even "shade" it. Not sure how pleased I am with the results here. I think the results could have been much better if the plastic was clear not green tinged. 77096 Labella DeMornay, Banshee Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2013 Sculpted by Julie Guthrie Translucent green Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped base
  20. In compliance with the forum rules, you will have to actively choose to see the naked demonic female form by clicking the links: Fully frontal Demon 1 Fully frontal Demon 2 Fully frontal Demon 3 Virina, Female Demon from the first Bones kickstarter. A classic succubus-style female demon. This was a quick paint job, nothing much to say about it. She is very naked with a nicely sculpted figure. No nipples though. Come on! Even Batman has nipples on his suit! But the sex demon does not get any? 77067 Virina, Female Demon Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012 Sculpted by Werner Klocke Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped base
  21. To protect any unsuspecting, innocent children from Harmful Subject Matter, the bared mammarial gland look-alike is hidden behind the links: Nearly Naked Model 1 Nearly Naked Model 2 Nearly Naked Model 3 Tyrea Bronzelocks, Barbarian Another win for female body armour protecting just the important bits! Or bit in this case. The right mammary and shoulder being her only vunerable points? Dat a$$ tho! Might this mini by any chance be sculpted by Kev White? Why, yes. Yes it is. Kev certainly has a knack for sculpting sexy people. Single nipple and all. 77374 Tyrea Bronzelocks, Barbarian Reaper Miniatures, Bones 2 KS 2013 Sculpted by Kev White Bonesium PVC 30mm round lipped base
  22. Tick, tock, tick, tock... Werecrocodile. Yup, a werecrocodile. Presumably someone survived getting bitten by a croc and then turned the following full moon, tearing off all their clothes to waddle down to the river and burble at the moon? So now we are just waiting for the WereDuckbilledPlatypus and WereMoose with baited breath. Maybe in Bones 5? Thankfully this mini does not have any clothing, armour, weapons or other items about it's person. This can work as a monstrous beast of any kind. Even a Kaiju in a game of Epic. This came from the third Bones kickstarter. 77447 Werecrocodile Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015 Sculpted by James Van Schaik Bonesium PVC. 45mm bespoke 3D printed base
  23. This piece has been sitting in my mini drawer for quite some time. I'm not sure where it came from or why it showed up but it appeared and desired paint so it got some. I am thinking of making it the grand mentor for the legion of Justice and Caeke to counter the dread influence of Fatimus but we will see. In the mean time, I dont know too much about this mini other than it was produced by Ral Partha in 1991 for TSR Its pretty and it was fun to paint, but my google fu is not strong enough to find the name of the character and the base has no further information. So without further Ado, my dragon Elder
  24. I needed some more henchmen to fill out my frostgrave parties, especially some archers which I seem to have in very short supply. So i Found these while rooting through my drawer of 'I dont know where this goes and put a pretty basic paint job on them. I needed some minis to fill out the challenge for this month so here they are: I did try a little freehand on the soldier's shield and played with some of the brighter colors for the dwarf twins so they would stand out. In the end, basic minis to liven up the frostgrave maps Thanks for looking!
  25. From the fourth Bones kickstarter (no, I have not received my shipment yet, not even a shipping notice). This minis was sold online and given as a freebie if you ordered for more than USD 40 from the Reaper site in February this year. When I ordered it I was not aware that this mini also is in the kickstarter. The January freebie owlbear was not a KS mini, so I assumed the Febuary one would be seperate too. So I will be getting another of this mini with the KS shipment. So anyway..."Bones Black". a darker grey, much harder, less unbreakable, and heavier material than the regular "Bonesium" Bones material. This new material was a bit of a surprise when announced not too long ago, as there was no mention of it in the Kickstarter. They have gone and produced many of the kickstarter minis in this new material (as in all the expansions, but not the core set). I understand that this material requires a different type of mould which is more expensive to make and maintain, so the Bones Black minis will be slightly more expensive at retail than comparable regular Bones. Reaper is on record stating that they chose the name as it sounded cool. The minis are not actually black, just dark grey. My first impressions of the material is that it is actually quite similar -but not identical- to both Restic and the newer Boardgame plastic such as used in HATE. It is very hard and diffcult to cut or bend when at room temperature. I suspect there is ABS in the PVC mix here. However, it still responds well to heat (near-boiling water) and goes rubbery soft and reposable just like other PVC minis. When soft, it is comparatively easy to slice with a scalpel hobby knife. Just like Restic, it needs a little time for super glue to grab, and when it does, it grabs firmly. It is easy to drill, and what little mould lines there were came off easily enough with said knife. Not quite as easy as polystyrene, but much easier than original Bones. They could actually be scraped, which does not work at all with regular Bones. The troll came assembled, and needed gap filling. Reaper has also addressed this issue, stating that the new material has slightly different tolerances and shrinkage than the original Bones. They have been adjusting the connection points to compensate to avoid such gaps going forward. At any rate, my impressions of the Bones Black material are mostly favorable. The biggest con would be that is seems slightly more brittle than the original Bones (that can be thrown around without taking damage), but I have not had any issues with neither this Troll or the Owlbear, so I can't really say. When the KS arrives I will be able to look at many more minis in this material, so we shall see whether this will be any issue. The quality of the details do seem to be rather better than earlier Bones, and this is the reason Reaper has introduced the material in the first place. Again, the smaller minis from the KS will be the proof of the pudding. Should have lit it better... And it is BIG! Actually as tall as the Storm Giant, and larger then the new GW Rockgut Troggoths (aka stone trolls) A quick and sloppy paint job. I started with a black undercoat, and painted the whole piece with a very dark blue. Then I drybrushed the trunk of the body with three different purples, with red on the stomach and chest. I drybrushed the arms and head with Vallejo Nocturna Shadow and ditto Cold Flesh, the belt and loincloth also in Shadow, with Deep Forest Skin for highlights, mixed a bit on my palette for a couple of shades highlighting. The claws and nails were also done in the greens. The leg of cured meat or large pouch (you choose) in browns. The crystals and eyes I did in Scalecolor Tesla Blue and Carribean Blue with Reaper Aircraft Grey highlight. This was a bit sloppy as seen in the photos. Teeth in Aircraft Grey. Base as usual, and it turns out my new Vallejo Black is really glossy. All in all the mini took less than an hour to paint. 44002 Rock Troll Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Bones Black 60mm base Will be available from reapermini.com at some point in the future when it goes on general retail release.
