  1. A couple of quick paint jobs to add to my collection of modern/sci-fi gaming figures. The crate came in the swag bag at Reapercon, it was a solid dark brown and I drybrushed it heavily with a flesh tone to make it look more like wood. Bonnie has no face. I did the best I could with what was there. I put her on a metal washer because she is so light the slightest jiggle flips her over on the table. Frank is a pretty solid guy, OTOH. They are both a little shiny because I sprayed them heavily for table use.
  2. I've finally started painting my second faction for MERCS: Recon, the CCC. I'm not sure why, but I keep picking factions with yellow in their official colour scheme. EU had some, but CCC is pretty much all yellow. I don't do a lot of yellow and I'm not really comfortable with it, but I think I managed to do a not-terrible job on these guys, at least so far. There are 5 figures in the squad from the starter box, but I've only gotten two finished so far. But its the end of the month, so for the RPChallenge I'll start a showoff post now, and update when I get the other three finished. This is the CCC Leader, with his scanner for checking the contents of rooms without actually having to breach. He also has a machine gun for when breaching is necessary. The CCC seem quite well geared up on the firepower.... And the Gunner. She is all about the firepower. She wears yellow and she shoots things... For this squad I did switch up the colour scheme a bit. In most of the art work they tend to have a very black or blue-black body suit. I went with the grey brown since I thought it would fit better with all the yellow, and make them look less like bumblebees. I should have the other 3 finished within the next week or two as they are all fairly far along.
  3. A deeply religious fellow, the Knight of Remembrance was originally a Knight Chaplain responsible for recording the names of his fallen comrades in arms. Spending too long seeing too many good men die due to the arrogance and incompetence of those in charge, he left his original knightly order to offer his skills to those in need. Another Space Marine from Games Workshop Deathwatch:- Overkill set, I had a lot of fun painting him even if he was covered in way too much stuff. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  4. Teenage mighty ninja teratons,Tengokon Tech's Teraton Dreadball team. They are actually the rebel cell known as 'The Blinking Shadow' inspired by Earth legends of a group of mighty turtle warriors Leo Gon took the mantle and image after seeking tutledge from ancient Teraton battlemasters, he and his three brothers with ther friends and alliies have joined in the rebels to fight against the GCCP. Leo Gon, renamed Leonado is the master, strong and wise beyond his years wielding ancient blades as well as a Tengokon Tech compact sniper rifle (or rifle depending on mission loadouts) and his stealth leads TMNT to succeed in many campaigns. Rafe Gon aka Raphael, master of sai and ustilising a sniper rifle stolen fro their first foray into life of a ninja warrior. Whilst his temper may get best of him outside the battle, on missions he is calm and able to best many a foe often by taking out key members of the opposition. More to come thoughts welcome
  5. Wave 2 of the MERCS:Recon KS arrived recently and got me thinking about painting up some more figures. As July is not a great month for me to get painting done, I went with some nice easy Security Force mooks. These are the SecFor I figures for the game. These are the lowest level threat to the MERCS. I figure their normal day is such exciting tasks as escorting that accountant that messed up out of the building and keeping an eye on sales reps to make sure they aren't stealing company pens. But they were issued a gun and when the boss calls that there is a disturbance on the R&D floor they are gung-ho to investigate. Unfortunately, when the disturbance is a squad of MERCS in heavy body armor and equipped with full auto weapons and flamethrowers...let's just say the company is always looking for new hires..... I actually started painting these guys at the track during Canadian National Superbikes, so I wanted something with a limited palette, which is why they all got the same skin tones. The guys with the beards aren't too bad as figures, although there can be a bit a of gap at the elbow where the arms attach. The bald guys have the worst gaps of any of the figs for Recon that I've assembled so far. The rest will likely get a bit of putty.

    Sally Starfield

    Sally is my first finished project from my original Bombshell Miniatures. Patrick Keith is one of my absolute favorite sculptors working today, and Sally was a great model to work on. I really like how the NMM purple turned out and this forum's suggestion of orange for the trim turned out really, really well. Original WIP: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/68437-sally-starfield-wip
  7. Since Painting Dog finally received my very late mini, I can post up the pictures I took of it. In the exchange questionnaire Painting Dog stated that they liked dragons and sic-fi stuff, so I decided to do both, because what's the point of a present if it's not awesomesauce. A space dragon was just what I wanted, but I wanted one with a gun. Like, a really big gun. So I took a chain gun from a CAV and attached it to the side of my dragon, as well as sculpting some armour onto it. I sculpted the terrain to match what is already on the bones silver dragon, then decided that it would look awesome if it was all blue, because he's on an alien planet, right? The dragon was painted purple, first a very dark purple (carnival purple with shimmer black paint), then amethyst purple brushed over that to make it look gem-like. The wings were painted with black shimmer paint, with slightly less dark nightmare black mixed with more shimmery black. The stars on the bottom parts of the wing were made with a toothpick and a silver. The belly scales, fins, and claws are all shimmer black, highlighted with darkened silver. For the gun, I wanted the barrel to look like it had recently been fired a lot, so I tried to make it look like hot metal. And I also put a little wrist computer around dragon's arm, also using a toothpick to make the design. I left it with a shiny finish because I really didn't want the matte sealer to dull the shimmer paints. In hand it looks very bright and rich, without all the shine spots that are in the picture. Of course if Painting Dog wants to put a matte finish on it, they can, but I wanted them to see the shiny version so they have both options
  8. This week, I've been working on some of my CAV vehicles from the Kickstarter, and I was thinking about a box of leftover Mechwarrior clicky base stuff I had, and the idea came to me to make a destroyed mech or two to use as scenery on the tabletop. I wanted it to look like it had sat on a long-forgotten battlefield for decades or centuries. I began by slicing the mech from its clicky base, and then I used a pair of pliers to rip the arms and head off. I then used a drill to make a big hole in the torso to look like where a missile had hit, knocking out the mech. I also used the drill to enlarge some of the holes where the arms and head had been connected. I used my hobby knife to pry open the cockpit, and then cut down a 10mm Warmaster skeleton figure and glued it into the cockpit to represent the mech's long-deceased pilot. Next, I cut some small sections of thin wire and glued them in the holes with superglue to look like cables that had been ripped apart when the mech was destroyed. I glued the parts with hot glue to a 3-inch plastic base that I had beveled the edge of with a hobby knife; and then covered the base with Tacky glue and applied a coating of sand. I sprayed it flat black, and then painted it with a series of browns and oranges to give it a rusted look. I painted the ground cover and added some static grass to finish it off. And here's the finished piece, shown with some 10mm Dropzone Commander infantry and a tank for scale. For the full build write-up and more photos, please see my blog: One More Gaming Project
  9. Finally got around to finishing this guy. Apologies for the potato pic, but a friend has borrowed my camera for an indeterminate amount of time so it's phone camera to the rescue! I really like these Future Skirmish minis, there's a lot of character in all of the sculpts and they're pretty cheap, too. I painted the base to match the other savage that I've done, but this guy has a lot more colour on him than the previous one. I thought I was going to do them all in drab, neutral tones but a bit of bright colour looks quite cool, I might keep it going on the rest of them. New pics!
  10. Took a while to upload, but these are the results from my WIP thread.:
  11. ...a 54mm metal and resin piece from Andrea Miniatures' Dark Nova Series. The figure is out-of-the-box, while the rubble base has been embellished with bent wire re-bar, angle iron, a pipe, and a torn-up, slightly squashed teddy bear. Floquil Gray model RR primer under Reaper MSPs. The piece is not based on any comic or game system that I'm aware of, so the sky's the limit as far as interpretation of what does what and color schemes go. I painted, damaged, and weathered it as I would a tank. Questions and comments are welcomed. No secrets here... Glen
  12. So in my long and endless planning of a Star Wars campaign I thought of crime syndicates. I want a run in (or two, or a dozen) with the Hutt's and I would also like some with local gangs, space pirates and what not. I have been looking around for a while at different miniatures for such things. It's time to throw the net out to this fine Reaper Community So the campaign takes place WAY after the new Jedi Order. The Jedi are fully establish again like Episode on One/Two. (About 20 years BBY*). I have found two miniatures in the Reaper catalog that fit the bill. I like the look of these but they are not enough. I would really like an alien. I have also considered Infinity Miniature armies. Mixing and matching. If y'all have any recommendations please share them here, I greatly appreciate it! *BBY stands for Before the Battle of Yavin. The Battle of Yavin is the battle at the end of Star Wars A New Hope when the Rebels fought the empire and destroyed the first Death Star. __________________________________________ Figure Finder Catalog: Part 1: Styx: Master of Shadows Part 2: Jabba Mod/Gang Boss Part 3 TAKE COVER!
  13. Recently received Wave 1 of fulfillment for the MERCS: Recon kickstarter. While there are some quality issues (which they appear to be working on) the game itself seems pretty cool with a ton of replayability. Wave 1 was a copy of each of the two versions of the core game: Counter Threat and Assassination Protocol. Each box comes with 20 plastic miniatures: 2 squads of 5 MERCS from different factions and 10 security forces (5 SecForII and 5 SecForIII, with all the copies in each box the same, but different sculpts between boxes). Wave 2 will provide a LOT more squads and figures, at least with my pledge level. To play the game you don't need to have the SecFor miniatures, as they have counters as well, but you do need the MERCS, so they went to the top of the line. After looking at the figures I decided to start with the EU faction, strictly because they looked like I could fully assemble them before painting, so should be the quickest to get going with (I did play one solo game with them after assembly and before priming just to try out the game (I lost.....but was -> <- this close to winning......)) I painted the EU mostly at work, but ended up finishing them up at home today, so I can seal them tomorrow and we can play on Monday. I'll probably add some individual pics tomorrow morning when the light is better, From left to right are the Analyst, the Sergeant, the Leader, the Medic and the Shock. I was just going for tabletop with the paint job, as these are to play with. It's based off the standard colours from Megacon Games. The basing I kept really simple, but decided to go with the faction colours for the 4 quadrants on the base. With all the squads I'll have I figured it was a way to make sure I had all of the right faction, plus one of the guys in my gaming group is visually impaired, so hopefully this will make it easier for him to pick the MERCS out from the SecFor, once I get them painted.
  14. So I was thinking of this more and more for a diorama I'm planning. What kind of pet would you imagine someone having on their ship? Additionally what kind of pet would you want on your ship? And why. Your ship being the one you own. Think Firefly, Han Solo, etc. Lastly, links to miniatures that correspond / pictures would be cool too. :)
  15. Here it is! Conclusive evidence of the existence of aliens!!!! Sorry, I may not have got enough sleep this weekend..... Anyway, picture, if you will, a race from another planet, not unlike our own. They discover a new planet with intelligent life. While they journey to meet them, they study the broadcasts of this race's own space exploration. From what they learn they pattern their own uniforms to follow the same colour system as the great explorers of this new species they journey to meet. These guys are just done to tabletop. I needed something to paint at work so ran down to the Bones storage facility on a Sunday night and picked something from the Chronoscope drawer. They were fun and quick to do. I have 20 more to do so they may end up in here at some point in the future.
  16. For Secret Sophie this year I got Klarg1 and he was looking for something Sci-Fi. I'd had an IMEF Bulldog that I'd been eager to paint since it first came out (Big Stompy Robots!!) but never gotten to. So I ordered myself another one and started in on it. I decided early on to go with battle damaged, so I could use both the pilot and the hatch, and so I could try out painting some damage. Then after Christmas I needed something to paint at work (and had just received a bunch of new military triads from the 12 days of Reaper) so I grabbed a couple of IMEF troopers to work on there while I was finishing the Bulldog at home. I'm pretty happy with how everything came out and I'm pretty sure the rest of my IMEF are going to get painted in a very similar fashion.
  17. This week I completed a tabletop paint job on Tiviel, Hellborn Rogue, from the Bones 1 Kickstarter "Bedeviled" set. When looking at this figure there was something about it that looked more Sci-Fi than Fantasy to me. I don't know if it was the outfit, or the stance, or just the general demeanor of the figure; but to me it looked a bit more like a Star Trek alien than a fantasy world demon. So, I decided to go with that for my painting scheme. I'm pleased with how the Sci-Fi look turned out on her. I think she looks like a good alien assassin, or perhaps some sort of exotic knife dancer. As always, C & C welcome. For the full painting article, please se my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2016/01/tiviel-hellborn-rogue-figure-192-of-266.html
  18. Episode VII The WIP Awakens It's a time of uncertainly. Dreariness grips the forums as the influence of the Dread Winter spreads, but a glimmer of hope remains in the heroic forces of the Forumites. As they struggle against the dark and cold of the enemy, these brave painters may yet awaken the skill and strength needed to complete new figures.... Now that I've got THAT out of my system.....I think I'll be painting some Sci-Fi stuff over the next little while, mostly Bones 3 stuff but anything else that doesn't deserve a separate, like some old resin barrel terrain pieces I have, will likely end up in here too. Game specific stuff like Counter Blast and (hopefully arriving any day) Mercs: Recon will get their own WIPs. First project, so Bones Gray Aliens. Picked these 5 out at midnight last night so I'd have something to paint today. Gave them a quick scrub and threw them in the paint box to take to work. Gave them all a undercoat of Gray Liner. Based the skin with Rainy Gray. Eyes are Solid Black as will be base coating for any hardware. Thinking about doing the uniforms as if they were an alien Star Trek landing party. Didn't have any decently dark yellows or blues with me, but the obvious red shirt got a base coat of a mix of Walnut Brown and Carnage Red. Goal with these is nice quick table top. As usual for me with Bones tabletop, as the flash was minor it was left as is. Thought the eyes came out decent considering they were testing the fire alarm system randomly throughout lunch....
  19. Some of you may remember that I recently posted the IMEF Reggie Van Zandt figure I had completed as a test figure for painting the rest of the IMEF set from the Bones 1 Kickstarter: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65909-imef-reggie-van-zandt-80017-bones/?hl=imef Over the Christmas break I had the time to finish the last of the figures from the set with quick tabletop paint-jobs, and here they are: As always, C & C welcome
  20. I see that I need another colour background. The red colour washed out the miniature a bit:
  21. I completed the IMEF Reggie Van Zandt Gatling-gunner figure over the weekend. This was my test figure for a paint scheme for the rest of the IMEF crew that came with the Bones I KS. I did a nice serviceable tabletop quality paint job on him, but was quite pleased with how is face turned out. All C & C welcome.
  22. This week, as i continue to work through the Bones I "Chronoscope Set", I painted up Rosie the Chronotechnician. It's a nice little figure with a lot of character. I'm a bit unhappy with her mouth, as it was not well molded and ended up looking a little odd. For the full write-up on painting her, please see my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/09/rosie-chronotechnician-figure-172-of-265.html
  23. Again. Not doing anything super spiffy. Another member of my army. Likely will be in a group shot at the end. I did him as a black and purple with a rifle. The blue is more his choice to make him look fiercer as he has scars around both wings.
  24. 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
  25. 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.
