  1. Just finished him for RCL. It was definitely not the crispest casting, I found the mold lines pretty extensive and frustrating. The face was pretty much a blob - I mostly just painted in teeth whereever I thought he needed them... However, this dude has character to spare! C&C are always welcomed!
  2. Here's my second skeleton following the same color scheme: bone, Red, orange/brown. Seems to be working so far. Just adding to this one to prevent flooding the forum.
  3. Another skeleton done. Bone: Heavy light brown Iraqi Sand Ivory Leather: Light brown Ochre Brown Cape: Viceroy red Phoenix Red (Shaded with green ink and indigo blue)
  4. I almost forgot how much fun it was to raise, I mean paint the dead.
  5. Got another one in this weekend all the way through, painted and based. I have seen this model done a number of different times and have really envied the work of those I saw, but it was finally my turn. Overall, this one was done on faster side and I'd love to have gone into further detail, but I got a bit excited to finish. I think I could punch up the cape a bit more with some orange. The skeleton colors were a bit of a test: light brown, sand yellow, splintered bone. The steel mail was also a test where I cant sem to figure out how to best highlight metal. It's too bright for me to see how much I'm layering on and it just looks like big jumps when I try. Either way, this one came out good, but I know I could have done it better.
  6. In my attempt to tackle minis quickly this month, I'm shooting for easier projects. Things without lots of baubles and pieces. This guy was basically down to Bones. #rimshot
  7. Reaper Bones Grave King from Bones V so no SKU yet, Part of my Children of the Night Project: WIP HERE: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79298-children-of-the-night-by-glitterwolf/page/28/#comments ************************ Kings, Princes, Lords, Jarls, Death doesn't care who you are how noble your bloodline is or over what realm you rule. You will be taken by Death, And when you're really unfortunate, a necromancer will summon you to fight for him. Once of noble blood, now nothing more than an automaton with a faint memory of what once was. ************************
  8. Reaper Bones - Skeletal Champion SKU: 77285 Part of my Children of the Night Project: WIP: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79298-children-of-the-night-by-glitterwolf/page/28/#comments ******************************* Undead warriors are hard to defeat, any Paladin or Witchhunter knows so. An Undead Champion is even more difficult to kill. Usually these were formidable warriors when they were alive, buried in their finest armor and with their best weapons they are prized finds for any necromancer. ******************************
  9. One of Reaper Bones Graveyard Knights/Champions. This time with a Polearm Part of mu Children of the Night Project WIP Here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79298-children-of-the-night-by-glitterwolf/page/28/#comments ************* A true champion fights to the death and sometimes even beyond that. *************
  10. Reaper Bones Grave Knight with Axe. Part of my Children of the Night Project. WIP Here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79298-children-of-the-night-by-glitterwolf/page/28/ ********************* Facing the Undead is terrifying, sure their weapons and armor may be rusty and they move slow, but they also never get tired. They keep coming and in the end they will overwhelm you. Try to kill it, it will just stand up again. Best to avoid such creatures. *******************
  11. If there's one thing I love painting, it's skeletons! I think these designs by Mantic Games are probably my favorite: they have a great deal of character, (for skeletons), the sculpted details are pretty crisp for the most part, and they offer a fair amount of customizability. These all came off of one sprue that I got in a sort of "undead sampler" pack. I know there's at least one other skeleton sprue out there...I may have to track it down at some point. I went for a very dark, desaturated look throughout the squad. I wanted them to look like they've just emerged from the muddy earth onto a rain-soaked battlefield (this also informed my decision to go heavy with the rust effects). Anyway, these guys really came to life as characters while I was painting them. I couldn't resist making up some little bios (to be honest, I got a little carried away). Enjoy! A formidable squad of mercenaries in life, the Damned Company's relentless love of carnage and war led them to develop many powerful enemies. One such enemy was a fiendish wizard skilled in the dark arts. This wizard placed a powerful curse on the Company...a curse which has condemned them to continue fighting other people's wars even centuries after the members of the Damned Company shuffled off this mortal coil. Now, the Company's skills can be purchased by any necromancer brave enough to call them forth. Anyone looking to "hire" the Damned Company should be aware that they still require payment for their services. But they no longer crave gold. The form of payment that the Damned Company now demands is truly enough to chill a man to his very soul... Captain Roderick: Commander Captain Roderick is the proud commander of the Damned Company. He possesses the three most important qualities of leadership: 1) a mind for military strategy, 2) the ability to inspire his troops, and 3) a helmet with a really fancy feather sticking out of it. Contessa: Contessa is the lone female member of the Damned Company. In life, she would often use her beauty to lure opponents into a false sense of security before she butchered them with her sickle. As a skeleton, she tends to skip right to the sickle violence. Marcus: Once a proud soldier serving a noble king, a series of misfortunes and bad decisions led Marcus to the less-illustrious life of fighting in a mercenary band. He resented his role in the Damned Company in life...being stuck with them for an eternity in death hasn't done much to improve his outlook. Louis: Easily the most blood-thirsty member of the Damned Company, Louis is always ready to enthusiastically skewer opponents with his spear. It's usually best to just point him toward the enemy and let him do what he does best. Christoph: Nicknamed "The Screaming Star" in life, Christoph is certainly a fearsome fighter who has earned his role as the Company's second-in-command. However, his fighting prowess is equalled by his ambition and tendency toward treachery. Christoph is always on the lookout for an opportunity to wrestle away command of the Damned Company for himself. Howard: Howard is the jokester of the group...always pushing the boundaries of humor. Unfortunately for him, his "axe in the head" routine was never as much of a hit with his fellow mercenaries as he thought it would be. George: George's preference for solitude led to many nights of guard duty in life. His alleged preference for sleeping while on guard duty probably led to many of the Damned Company becoming skeletons earlier than planned. Change is often slow to come, however. Even in death, George still pulls more than his fair share of guard duty. Stanley: Stanley is a capable soldier with the annoying habit of shouting "hammer time" after each vanquished opponent. In life, he also had an odd preference for wearing extremely oversized pants. No one understood it then, and no one understands it now. Karl: Karl is the lumbering powerhouse of the group - always willing to confidently wade head-first into battle. He was also the first member of the Company to actually be killed in battle. There's probably some sort of lesson to be learned from that... Horace: Despite being well-liked by the rest of the group, Horace is often regarded as the forgotten member of the Damned Company (on the rare occasions when anyone bothers to regard him at all). Sandoval: Sandoval is an accomplished soldier. However, he is also chronically late. Whenever the Damned Company is called forth from the depths of hell, it's not uncommon for Sandoval to be absent at first. No worries, though...he always shows up eventually (usually at the most opportune time). Lobo: In life, Lobo served as the team's scout and mascot. He has much the same role in death. But, for obvious reasons, he's now less-enthusiastic about chewing on bones.
  12. Presenting the Skeletal Guard Captain (He has a name but I can't find it) from the game Warhammer Quest:- Cursed City by Games Workshop. Rather pleased with this one, particularly his cape! As always any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  13. Finally painted up this guy on his throne! He's been waiting to be painted up for quite a long time. Paint scheme too involved to remember because I mixed a lot of the paints, but I used a lot of Army Painter Speed Paints and some Citadel Contrast Paints, especially for the throne. But the entire throne started out as a gray with light gray drybrush, same as you can still see on the base of it, before applying various mixes of paints/washes on its surfaces/details. The sword blade is a black base with Army Painter "D&D Mithral Silver" on it, and the runes drybrushed white. Then I gave it a coat of the Citadel "Coelia Greenshade" wash(which is blue). I like the effect that gave. Quite a while back I did some work on it, first removing the character("Dragoth") from his throne, and then adding magnets to his butt and his throne. So I can both use the throne and him separately from each other. (This mini is also available with two other heads: One that's human/vampire, and one that's with a helmet on.)
  14. Hi: I just submitted this guy for RCL October. What a fabulous sculpt - the details were a treat! I tried playing around with shaded metallics, which seems like a nice compromise between full-on NMM and simple metallic + wash. -t
  15. Hi all! How do you do? Here are three egyptian skeletons from Otherworld Miniatures. They serve as basic enemies for my egyptian fantasy adventures.
  16. I wasn't sure about the color choices in the beginning but i like them now 🙂 I hope this mini scares my players when we play dnd! Thanks for looking!
  17. Hello All, Here is a "Dust King and Crypt" miniature set I completed a few weeks ago. Thank you for looking.
  18. Last year was my best painting year since 2013! I averaged one per week. Despite the enthusiasm with a brush, I have been less engaged with the community than ever. I paint 'em, and then they go to a cabinet never to be seen by another person. Naturally a good number of the pieces I have completed over the year are reaper miniatures, so I'm happy to share a selection of things I have done here. The undead are fun to knock out, and this Minotaur was no exception. They are so forgiving to rough paintwork that they are especially relaxing for brief sessions. Nothing fancy here, but I like it. The weapons on the base come from the reaper sprue from a prior KS.
  19. Approach I tried out to a different approach to quick batch painting. I already have a lot of undead painted and I didn't really want to spend too much time on the skeletons. So to do them quickly I undercoated them in a dark brown paint, dry brushed them with Titanium Buff and the glazed on colours. Transparent Yellow Oxide was mixed with some Burnt Umber for the bones. The Results Ahh My Love...: The yellow coat required some normal painting to get it he right colour. I love how it came out. I also decided to paint the compass needles. Where Is My Booty!: I did some basic OSL on this figure. It looks better in real life than what came up on the photo since the centre of the lantern is bright yellow and the glow is green(the lighting was wrong when I took them and the phone autocorrected them to dark, amusingly enough the clock colour is quite close to what it is in real life) Diggy Hole: I like the colour of the treasurer's shirt. It a really bright teal. Sadly the auto correction has darkened the photo considerably and I seem to have misplaced the picture of the back Being Dead Doesn't Stop Drunks!: This where fun to paint. I choose to do as many colours as I could on the drunken pair. Has Someone Seen His Hand?: I choose not to use any metallic paints when painting these figures. I considered doing rust on the weapons, but decided against it since the sculpts of the weapons showed them to be in such great condition. I consider the pirates to be raised from the moment they died and be programmed to always polish their weapons (at sea they would get damaged quickly other ways). Has Anyone Seen His Leg?: The peg leg could have been a better colour but it is not something that I wanted to draw attention to so it can be how I left it (minimal details and same colour as boot). Anchor Of The Damned!: The anchor used my favourite rust painting method. Do a base coat of the desired undercoat (in this case a really dark warm brown). Then use paints consisting of real rust! Red Iron Oxide wash/layer (wash has a nice effect where the colour gathers in the places rust would, and if it is the correct consistency a sufficient amount would be left in other areas you painted). Then highlight with Yellow Ochre (whose pigment is Earth that has a large content of Yellow Iron Oxide. You could substitute for Yellow Iron Oxide or Golden Ochre if you want rust that is brighter). I like how there are two round pieces under the broken arm bone of the bottom skeleton. You could leave them as rock but I chose to paint them as Two Pieces of Eight.
  20. Hi there. I've got a boney baddie for you all today. I was disappointed by the official mini offerings for a Skull Lord (a skeletal warrior with 3 heads), and it seemed like the perfect candidate for a bit of conversion. A few citadel skulls later and... For the observant viewer, you'll notice the Skeletal Champion's original head at the bottom of the bone pile. His skull was a bit too bulky compared to the citadel skulls and the sculpt didn't really leave enough room for three heads so I had to cut away some of the shoulder armor. All said, this was a pretty simple conversion and will make for a fun fight in the future. To see more of my winter-themed minis, check out my Frostrun Project HERE.
  21. So I finished the Undead Regiment. Background story.. the Vampire Queen lost a big battle, fled to a swamp/jungle area. Subdued the swampfolk and now faces a rebellion. Some swamp creatures follow her, others oppose her. Here is the full regiment. Mixed Manufacturers. Mixed types of Undead. I will post them separatly or in smaller groups for better pics of them all. I will try not to flood the forum, so today the regiment and the first solo/smaller groups. The rest will follow shortly. The Vampire Queens heraldry is red and purple so all the Undead have this colours somewhere. Also as a sign she is mistress of the swamp, her heraldry has a snake in it, variations are found on the shields and banner. Now the horde:
  22. I painted the skeleton knight from my October order.
  23. Greetings! Ceneric, Wihtboḡa Warrior from Mierce Miniatures: Thanks for looking!
  24. I have been rooting around in the boxes of yore, and this gem was found hidden away deep within a pile of ancient metal. This one was built and partly painted, but also slightly damaged. The wrists have been bent to reposition the drumsticks, and one of them had snapped off. Some quick repairs and a sloppy paintjob later, ta-daa: The "Arachno-Assassins" are a small lineup of six-armed skeletons that Reaper originally released sometime around the turn of the century in their white metal Dark Heaven line. They seem to still be available from Reaper, although none of them have made it into Bones PVC, which might be indicative of their sales potential. This is a pity as some of them are quite nice. I bought a few of them back in the day, and still have some in various states from bare metal through undercoated to painted-and-stashed-away-somewhere. Well, this one is done at long last. A bit crude, but still. Done. Hit me with your rhythm stick, hit me, hit me! Hit me slowly, hit me quick, hit me, hit me, hit...me! For some obscure reason, this mini made me think of the song by Ian Dury. This mini was completed August 11th 2020 02167 Arachno Assassin Reaper Miniatures , ca. 2000 Sculpted by Bob Ridolfi Metal 30mm base available from reapermini.com
  25. One step closer to having the full Dungeon Dwellers set finished! I tried a lot of different stuff here, most for the first time! Such as... -Full NMM armor -Freehand on cloak -Painted highlights on liquid -A unique gem in the shield (Watermelon Tourmaline) -A tiny bit of OSL on the eyes
