  1. Not doing anything fancy with these guys and likely they will wind up in a huge post with my whole army once I finish it, but for now they get their own Show-off First my Dual Pistol Wielding Fire Dragon Hatchling I think he is absolutely adorable. I may go in ad make the eyes a darker color though
  2. This month has been really busy, but I managed to at least get a couple more Mekkus done. These ones have a pair of Pulsar Rifles. And here is my Mekkus squad now. Still 3 more to paint from what came in the KS.
  3. Decided to start on my Counterblast! figs in the new year, and I know there are some others on the forums here that were in on that kickstarter, so figured I'd start and open topic. I went in for the Ultonium level and got one of each starter set. That's a good sized pile o' figs.... I'm planning to start with the Mekkus. Let's open those bags and take a look. Ummmm, hmmm. I need to go sort out what belongs with what I think....
  4. Rules used: FUBAR. Figures: Reaper, Khurasan.
  5. WIP thread here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/56226-01407-dana-murphy/ Dana Murphy is my first attempt at a larger scale miniature. She was a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. I really wanted to get her done for ReaperCon, so I had to rush a bit at the end. I made quite a few mistakes, but I also learned a lot about painting at a larger scale. I hope to paint up at least one at this scale before next year's ReaperCon. Convenient, since I bought two candidates at the con itself. Dana, including pedestal Closer-ups of Dana
  6. Woo! Finally done! I've been working on One Shot here for a few months. Overall I'm fairly pleased, but there was a lot that I just said "heck with it" in the name of finishing the model. Unfortunately, Jessi (the driver)'s pose (and where the pin ended up) kind of hides her, even though she's probably the best painted part of the whole thing. The gun is stolen from a Dust Tactics model because I thought she needed an upgrade if she was going to compete with the likes of Kasaro-To (the only other Relic I have assembled and painted). I used a lot of airbrushing and edge highlighting in neutral greys on the relic to match the rest of my Black Diamond force. Jessi is more colorful, because when you bring your own walking artillery piece to the fight against the end of the universe you can wear whatever you want. In this case, it's a bomber jacker, goggles, short shorts and pink leggings under armored boots. Because anime. Also pictured is Fritz, her cypher. The pictures suffer from glossiness - I didn't want to risk the fuzziness seen on some other models I've painted recently and the weather was nice enough for spray sealer.
  7. So I've been tossing around the idea of prototyping (yet another) sci-fi miniatures game system. The game concept I have would work best at 15mm, but since I don't have any 15mm miniatures, I haven't actually done anything in regards to trying my concept out in terms of a full scale game. I tried doing some paper counters as an initial test, but that isn't working out. So I've been kind of looking around at what kind of good deals I can get on a bunch of 15mm infantry figures. I'm probably just going to buy a box of Wargame Factory's 15mm WW2 Americans, since there are 92 figures in a box for $22, but before I do that, does anyone have any leads on even better deals for a variety of inexpensive 15mm infantry figures? Thanks in Advance.
  8. I managed to get two more figures painted for my Lancers squad in May. First up we have the Captain, He's a Shrinaar, which I guess are a race of space-faring cat people. And we also have the "Veteran" H0pr Bot. He's seen some action and hasn't even had time to get the second hand replacement parts repainted.... Here's a shot of my Lancers squad at this point.
  9. I also managed to whip through a couple of Mekkus Aggressors. These are the version with twin Particle Beam weapons. Here they are with the Defender I'd already done.
  10. This year my husband got me some resin terrain from Itar's Workshop, including some sci-fi pieces. One of these is IWS-IND-003, "Engine" and one of them is IWS-IND-001, "Power Generator", but I can't recall which is which. Here they are with Reaper's Dee Dee, Astro Girl, for scale. Please pardon my ignorance. I don't know know if these are true-to-life or pure fantasy, so I decided to paint them how I liked. I didn't take pictures for the earliest stages. First I primed them with titanium white (Golden matte fluid acrylics) with a very little flow improver added. Typically I wash over this with burnt umber to bring out details before painting. But for these pieces I wanted elements to glow as if lit from within. I have found that lighting effects work better over a pure white base, so I added them before the umber wash. One of them is going to have a cold, green glow, like fluorescent lights. The other has a shaded violet glow from above. Both have a bit of warm gold light. The mixes are simple. The green was just a touch of phthalocyanine green with titanium white. The violet is the same with the addition of some quinacridone magenta. The yellow is simply yellow iron oxide with white. (Reaper colors = Clear Green (almost), Pure White, Clear Magenta (probably), Palomino Gold) Anything painted on white looks deeper than it is. These colors are pretty light, and to show how light, here's my half-painted Reaper frost giant next to one of the resin pieces. For the last preparation step I washed some burnt umber over the pieces, brushing only lightly over the lighted areas to leave the recesses brightly colored. I may have missed a cranny here or there which I will fix as I go along.
  11. This is the first figure for the 2nd faction I'm painting up for Counterblast, the Mekkus. They are your classic all conquering robot race who turned on their creators and are not running rampant across the galaxy! I started with the Defender #1, a heavily armored defensive unit. Hopefully the fairly simple paint scheme will make it quick to get the whole squad painted up.
  12. And here is a H0pR Bot for my Lancers squad. He's a great fig, lots of ways to pose him. I had a lot of fun painting him up.
  13. Has anyone actually played WWX? I can't say that I'm overly impressed with the models, but interesting/different gameplay always piques my interest. Anything new or novel here? Not that I need any more miniatures games....
  14. Another member of my Lancers squad, this is the Human Brute. I had real problems with his eyes, so I decided "It's Sci-Fi" and gave him silver implants. Really happy with how the rest of him came out though.
  15. Finally got some more of my Counterblast Lancers crew done. Here's a Human Plugger. Overall I'm pretty happy with her. Eyes could have been better, just not with me painting them....at least they are pointed close to the same direction!
  16. Here's the first guy I've painted from the Operation: Icestorm box for Corvus Belli's Infinity skirmish game. He's just a grunt I was working out some color schemes and another attempt to speed things up with tabletop painting. Had a tough time pinning him to the base (a plastic piece from Sedition Wars), required some touch-ups which is why there is a horrid dot of red that needs fixing on his back calf :p
  17. The are the first of the Counterblast figures I've completed. This BdE Bot was painted a while ago, but I never got around to basing it. Finally got that done. This guy was fun to paint. Finally an eye big enough for me to work with, and no worries about having to line it up with another one . I kept the bases simple on these as Counterblast is a skirmish game I hope to be playing before too much longer.
  18. I realized I hadn't posted all the old Shadowrun Ral Partha figures I painted last year. This is an ork woman street samurai. Like all old Parthas, her base is integral and pre-sculpted. I think I prefer the new Shadowrun aesthetic, where even orks can be kind of cute. This one is pretty grotesque. The rest of the Shadowrun pieces I painted at the same time are Reaper's own Caine, Cyber-Troll, a Troll woman from Wolfram's Gang, a Wolfram's gang troll with tattoos, an Oni bouncer, a cyber-troll in reflective armor, and the marvelously over-the-top Lord Torgo.
  19. This was one of several old Ral Partha Shadowrun figures I painted recently. I liked this one because he was just bizarre. He's sold as a troll bouncer. He's clearly based on classic Japanese oni, so I painted him up like one. The paint is all matte; the effects on the back of the hair are paint, not shine. Other Shadowrunners painted at the same time include: Reaper's own Caine, Cyber-Troll, a Troll woman from Wolfram's Gang, a Wolfram's gang troll with tattoos, an ork woman street samurai, a cyber troll with reflective armor, and the unbelievably over-the-top Lord Torgo.
  20. The Story - Two years ago, a friend, who used to run a gaming store, asked if I wanted all his old minis left from when he closed the store, since they were just taking up space. As I have no willpower, I said sure. He said there might be 3 or 4 Diamond boxes worth. There ended up being 9 boxes... Fast forward to last year, when the Kickstarters started rolling in. I now have even more minis I will never really have time to paint. So what to do with all these minis in the boxes? Well, I could sell some on ebay or something , but that sounds like work. So how about I give some away? I started by giving Cartmanis's son a few figs to paint. Then used some blister packs as packaging material for Secret Sophie. Still an awful lot of stuff, running out of room for KS stuff. How about I do a contest? A Sci-Fi contest, because I've got a ton of Sci-Fi stuff, I really like Sci-Fi stuff, and I don't see enough Sci-Fi stuff being done on the site. So, here we are. Paint up some cool Sci-Fi stuff and, if you place, you'll get to pick out some (hopefully) cool Sci-Fi stuff and I'll send it to you. TL;DR - I have way too many Sci-Fi figs that I will never paint. Paint up something Sci-Fi and maybe I'll send you some. Contest rules: -- the theme is Science Fiction. Any Sci-Fi is good. But if you want to do cowboys, they had better be Space Cowboys, and there coats had better be brown. -- entries can be of any manufacturer, or sculpt your own. -- any figure which was painted and finished between May 1st and the deadline is eligible -- the deadline for entries is September 7, 2014 at 11:59 pm CST -- you may enter as many times as you like, but only one prize per person will be awarded -- each entry needs to be uploaded to the appropriate thread. Please attach your entries using the forum uploading feature or hotlink from the Inspiration Gallery. We want to make sure they're visible at all times. -- you may submit between one and four images of each Squad or Single Figure entry and up to six images for Diorama. They do not need to be stitched into a single image file. -- you are allowed to enter miniatures that will also be entered into other contests that might overlap this one. -- the judges or Reaper reserves the right to remove entries if deemed inappropriate, but we're pretty laid back here and this is just to cover our butts. -- the judges and Reaper can clarify and amend rules at will. Categories: There are three categories, Diorama, Squad and Single Figure Diorama: A Diorama is defined as two or more figures on a scenic base that helps to tell as story. Judging Criteria -- The over all possible score for each entry is 100 points. The judges will look at the following when deciding: Composition: layout, how well it tells a story, etc -- 50 points Painting Skill -- 25 points Overall Presentation of the miniature (basing, colors used, and so on) -- 25 pts Squad: A Squad is defined as 4 or more figures painted as a cohesive unit. Judging Criteria -- The over all possible score for each entry is 100 points. The judges will look at the following when deciding: Cohesion: how well the unit ties together -- 50 points Painting Skill -- 25 points Overall Presentation of the miniature (basing, colors used, and so on) -- 25 pts Single Figure: A Single Figure is just that, one fig, any size. A vehicle with a driver/rider would be a single fig, but a vehicle with a crew would better fit in squad or diorama. Judging Criteria -- The over all possible score for each entry is 50 points. The judges will look at the following when deciding: Painting Skill -- 25 points Overall Presentation of the miniature (basing, colors used, and so on) -- 25 pts The Prizes: The items I have available are mostly VOID and Warzone figures, including a number of box sets. There may also be a few Sci-Fi items from Star Wars and some really old TSR Gamma World stuff. I will likely split the items up into categories, so a winner may get to pick one from the "boxed sets" list and X from the "Blister packs" list (for example). I reserve the right to throw more stuff in the box if there is room after packing your picks. Picks will be done by where you placed, in the order of Diorama, Squad and then Single. So 1st place Diorama will pick first, 1st place Squad will pick second and so forth. The prizes in each category: 1st place - picks: 2 Large and 20 Small 2nd place - picks: 1 Large and 16 Small 3rd place - picks: 1 Large and 12 Small lucky drawing - picks: 1 Large and 8 Small Best Reaper - Reaper provided award for the best all Reaper entry - $15 Reaper Gift Certificate, plus I'm going to throw in 4 Small picks (just cause I'm like that) See attached pdf for complete list of picks available. contest_minis_list.pdf Image Enhancement: -- digital enhancement ("Photoshopping") of your entry is strictly prohibited. -- no clone brush, healing brush, airbrush, or other brush work. Fix your paint with paint, not with Photoshop. -- no adding or removing background elements from the image -- cropping, global color balance, and global level adjustments are allowed ("global" means "the entire image." You may not "pop" colors by only selecting some areas for level adjustment. )
  21. Another great model from Infinity. I love the anime feel of this guy.
  22. Last Stand on the Icaria Plains This diorama was created for use in the Spaceship Superstar contest. Minis used are 80009: Rex, Dark Future Hero, 80010: Nova Corp:Sgt, 80011: Nova Corp:Guard, 80015: Nova Corp:Rifleman, and the discontinued Bones Ellen Stone, Cowgirl. A short WIP is here.
  23. Nothing like procrastinating on something else to get work done. So here is my progress on the Black Dragons unit from Relic Knights. Also included is their leader, Sophia Drake. Miniatures are in various stages of complete, with the one on the far left being fully completed. Sophia is not wearing a helmet, and her head is off to the side. I may need to strip it and restart - the German Gray primer doesn't work great with the light skin and pink/purple hair she'll have.
  24. This is a diorama I'm planning to submit to the Spaceship Superstar contest. It's nearly complete, but I thought I'd get you lot's opinion before I glued everything down. Hopefully the story is clear from the piece, but basically it's just a good old-fashioned showdown between a pair of outlaw-with-a-heart-of-gold types and the lawmen on some red alien planet. So without further ado: Notes: The NOVA guns and the square bit of their backpacks are just basecoated Brown Liner or black, but will stay pretty dark. Their little chest insignia need to be picked out. Rex's gloves are basecoated Intense Brown, and need some highlighting/shading. Other than that, all painting could be done as of now. I'm somewhat concerned the NOVA troops are too bright, and draw the attention away from the heroes, so I'm considering a Bloodstain Red wash to bring them down a bit. Is this a good idea or are they fine and I shouldn't risk ruining them? They'll all be cut off their integral base and glued down. Minis used are 80009: Rex, Dark Future Hero, 80010: Nova Corp:Sgt, 80011: Nova Corp:Guard, 80015: Nova Corp:Rifleman, and the discontinued Bones Ellen Stone, Cowgirl. (Metal version is 500003: Ellen Stone, Cowgirl.) So, what do you guys think? ETA: As I mentioned, I'm entering this into a contest, so real critique would be helpful.
  25. Here's my contest entry for the single figure Be A Spaceship Superstar contest. I was originally not going to do an entry, but then I read the premise of the contest and thought that I had the same idea about most of my sci-fi stuff; give it to Anne or paint some of it. I decided to paint up Sophie whom I acquired during the annual Reaper X-mas days of Christmas adventure back in 2011 (I think). I opted for more of a modern (dull) NMM armor. I also gave her one terminator eye. The colors I used were all Reaper MSP and include: Carnival purple, Blue liner, yellowed bone, brains pink, maggot white, redstone shadow, blackened brown, dark elf shadow, gory red, sun yellow, woodstain brown and breonne blue.
