  1. --->Since I didn't have enough stuff going on<--- And Halloween is right around the corner, I needed to paint something in that theme... Since in 30+ years of painting minis, I have never painted a Vampire, I decided it was time when I found these 2 guys in the pile of blister packs... People commented that the Duergar I painted a while back had nice creepy looking flesh tones, and I agree. So I am going to take these 2 one step further up the layering chain of colors that I used there. Then we will see if I start adding White to the mix.... Maybe the Reaper Spectral White, with that hint of Blue in it? Eyes were done with GW Scorched Brown, then Reaper Spectral White. Matthias I started with Scale 75 Brown Grey, then Rainy Grey: Sorry about the blurry pics, to late now to re take them though! Camera focusing on wrong parts, and operator not checking the pics... Then a layer of Thar Brown Next will be Thar Brown with Mojave White. Then lots of glazes of that mix to smooth things out. Comments, Thoughts, Ideas all welcome! 8) George Edit-->Ivan was moved to his own WIP Thread Edit--->added sku to tag
  2. Here are 2 quick photos, individual photos to come. Started on my computer because the phone is taking some getting used to.
  3. My second attempt at doing NMM. Hope you all like it. Please give as honest a criticism as possible for me to improve. Dont worry it is not possible to hurt my feelings, so fire away. Thankyou!
  4. My atempt to paint the Wraith Knights from Red Box Games. I've had these for quite some time but always hesitated to put paint on them (or some other mini was infront of them in line). Kind of a quickish paintjob but I'm happy where they're at. I could spend some more time on each but I would have diminishing returns. So they're finished and I'm moving on to the next batch! I notice that some of the figures collected some dirt sometime efter varnishing. Perhaps I'll go back and fix them sometime, but for now I'm leaving them as they are.
  5. Completed Ghost King. I added a good bit of "necrotic green" wash between the armor plates, over the chain mail, and to the base underneath his robe. I think it turned out pretty well. There's a few unpainted spots I can see on the pictures way down underneath, but I'm not terribly worried about them because I can't even see them when I'm holding the mini up in natural light. Camera flash is very unforgiving. Next up is the Whispering Tyrant. WIP thread here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64985-undead-lords-2-ghost-king/#entry1243291
  6. Second member of my undead quadrumvirate; the Ghost King. I'd say I'm about 70% finished with him. Same green mix from my Lich (what I've been thinking of as "necrotic green") was used for all the places I could think of where light would leak out from the armor, robe, or skull. He may look a bit wet in the pictures, because his second coat of Reaper black ink was still drying when I took them.
  7. So here's my Lich, all painted up and ready to strike terror into the hearts of my Pathfinder group!
  8. So I've been secretly painting a little, and not updating. I'm planning on doing a little bit more of both going forward. Currently I'm working on 2/3 of a pack of extra zombies for zombicide, a lot of undead from bones 2 (mostly skeletons, and some ghasts which are just waiting to get varnished at this point. and a few other items I haven't yet decided on - hopefully shelf of shame stuff so I can clear it off, and maybe a few modern pc types. 77159 ghast (#1 yellow cloth) a few WIP photos sometime this weekend.
  9. Also finished off my Barrow Wardens. I might have gone a little heavy on the rust, but I'm still trying to get the hang of it. I might have to try thinning out the brighter rust from the Vallejo special effects so it flows into the crevaces more easily.
  10. I've decided to take a leaf out of Drifter's book, and do a WIP thread for my Reaper order that finally made it home to me (after sitting in my local post office for over a week, due to an oversight related to import duty) =] My hoard isn't quite as impressive as his, as my order contained four minis for somebody else (postage to the UK is frightening, so we always do big orders, and club together to make it work out if we can't afford enough individually) and therefore those aren't here =P I've got the following.... 77190: Nethyrmaul the Undying 77240: Ingrid, Female Viking 89031: Whispering Tyrant 77251: Bloodhoof, Minotaur Barbarian 77205: Alistrilee 77048: Mocking Beast 77240: Skeleton Guardian Sword 77241: Skeleton Guardian Axeman =] Now, Imma be swapping a couple of my skeletons with Drifter, so that we've both got more variety going on and while he's got Dragoth, I've got the Whispering Tyrant for the leader of mine. Nethyrmaul though, is the pride of this order. I'm delighted to finally have him sitting in front of me, and I've assembled him dry for the time being, just so I can admire his ridiculously tall splendour. He needs a bit of filing here and there to make his pegs sit better, as he's a bit of a pain to pop together for me, but I'm super happy with him and can't wait to get on with painting him. Not sure where Imma keep him, but y'know, what do. However, much as I wanna paint him, Imma start by cleaning him up, and then I'll try and paint I think the Mocking Beast tonight, coz it's just a delightful little thing, haha. Nethyrmaul may, however, get his base coat on tonight.
  11. I just want to show off the non player minis I painted for my Dungeons & Dragons club over the past year. Today: everything undead Starting with zombies, I got me some that could fit in a fantasy setting: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/zombie/sku-down/06135 http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/zombie/sku-down/03598 http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/03601/sku-down/03601 next up are skeletal warriors. I love these figures, they remind me so much of the old Ray Harryhausen movies. http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/06133/sku-down/06133 Then we got Dragoth, the defiler http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/02056/sku-down/02056 The ghost king http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/02991/sku-down/02991 And the whispering tyrant who - being quite a snap taller than average human - makes a pretty good level boss http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/60060/sku-down/60060 ...hope you like them
  12. Presenting Vito Vendetta, the undead Halfling mobster from Micro Art Studios Wolsung. Painted him purely to try out my new rust paints on his chains, probably should've chosen something simpler for a first attempt, but I think they turned out pretty good, as has the mini overall. As always, any comments or criticisms are greatly appreciated.
  13. For your amusement. These guys used to come two to a blister, but only come in ten-packs now. Thing 1 Thing 2 As always, c&c welcome! (You know, the more I use that smiley, the more smug it looks. I like it.)
  14. For your enjoyment. As always, c&c welcome!
  15. So, I had to repaint this after ruining it with the wrong sealer (turned it snow white). Strippid it down with pine sol . While painting the grey base...I dropped it onto the concrete...right on its left eyelid ... I'm convinced he is cursed....
  16. Knocked this one out while I did the caryatid. Sometimes it's good to just get some minis painted, you know? Pretty quick and nasty, wargaming-style paint job (i.e. liberal use of quickshade ink). When I get a few more dudes finished I'll give them all some snow on their bases to go with the Ice Troll. Frostgrave here we come! Better start painting some adventurers...
  17. A couple of months ago I ordered a bunch of "Fir Bolg" Skeletons from Brigade Models, originally produced and still sold for the "Celtos" skirmish miniatures wargame. Roughly two weeks later, which translates to two months ago now, they arrived and I reviewed them. As I've said in the past, I've got a real soft spot for one-piece metal skeletons. There are some other lovely models out there, but many of them are very fragile - and I prefer more sturdy models for wargaming, especially with some of my Ham-Handed friends. Now, I've finished painting the first unit of them - or the first 12 out of the 59 models I purchased, at least. The colour scheme is pretty simple and in keeping with the rest of the army - Red and Black, Iron and Brass, Rust and Verdigris, Cadmium-Red wood - and Bone. The tabards and cloth have simply been quartered with the cloth colours to keep it simple. One each of the three sculpts for your perusal. I purchased four of each in order to set up 12 on a 100mm x 80mm base which will represent a Regiment in Kings of War. The group shot showing all of the 12 I bought. Since we're just talking about duplicate models, I thought it more interesting to skip showcasing each individual duplicated sculpt. With a recent game of KoW against Marouda's Undead showing how effective Horde-sized units are, I'm tempted to buy another set of these guys for her - and some of the other Regiment-sized groups as well! Based like this, the models work very nicely as a KoW regiment - Tournament-approved as well as I've checked with a key member of the Rules Committee. Beyond that they're very easily popped off the regiment base for use in Role-playing or any other tabletop or board game. Maybe even Celtos! More poses would be ideal, but these will still work nicely enough on the table. Overall, I think these are great models - very much fit for purpose, and I'm very happy with them.
  18. The bodak from FD's Kickstarter. Paul Muller at the top of his game.
  19. So I am super excited about the graveyard expansion for Bones 3 and it has inspired me to expand my undead horde. I'm looking for more interesting miniatures to paint and display. I currently own a small Vampire Counts army for Warhammer Fantasy Battle but I really don't play games with them and prefer collecting and painting. I have about 40 skeletons, 20 zombies, 10 grave guard, some zombie wolves, a corpse cart, a couple vampires, a varghulf, and Nagash. (Nagash requires assembly and painting but I have him anyway!) I want to assemble a graveyard scene where an undead army is massing for impending undeathly mischief. I am interested in adding more skeletons, armored skeletons (both regiments and characters like death knights), necromancers, and interesting undead monstrosities. A smattering of more incorporeal undead would be great too but I mostly want to focus on a core of skeletons with some larger undead beasties. My current miniatures have a predominatly Gothic theme, though some of those Egyptian undead do really tempt me. If I could find a way to visually unify the gothic and egyptian elements... Some of the Reaper Minis I intend to add are Ghoul Queen, Malek the Necromancer, Nethyrmaul, some of the Barrow Wights, and Captain Razig and some of his cronies and undead crab! I would love hear any suggestions on other models you guys would recommend to add to my horde. I love bones and things covered in bones but I'm a little picky when it comes to anatomy. For example: GW Vampire Counts Skeletons are great but GW Tomb King Skeletons are wonky. Also I would be interested in suggestions for mounts that might work well with some of the characters. For example: The Ghoul Queen deserves mount worthy of her royal status, maybe something along the lines of an ornate palanquin carried by armed skeletal minions. Maybe I'll just buy her a Coven Throne. Thanks!
  20. Painted this one a while ago, but I've been waiting for my basing stamps (so I could make a fancier cobblestone base than my own mediocre skills could manage). I used a wash on his clothes to catch all the holes and rips in them, which resulted in him being a bit messier than I would like, but overall I think he looks fairly good. Any comments and criticisms are, as always, most appreciated.
  21. Frostgrave Warband, includes the following minis from Reaper In order top to bottom. 77159,77175, 77024, 61011,89017,61025, 77066,03255 . One miniature of unknown origin as well, the blue feathered cloak mini in last place. Please feel free to comment if you know what it is :) ! Fun game, and great in that any minis will work for it!
  22. Here is an early Citadel mini "Necromancer" from their "Fantasy Adventurers" range. I enjoyed painting him, it's always nice to visit the dark side! This guy has a wonderfully malevolent expression on his face & I love the way his staff is carved into the shape of a "diving" skeleton. Thanks for looking!
