  1. Hi, Reaper! Haven't contributed in a long while, which I apologise for. Last year, I purchased a box of Mantic skellies and never really did anything with them after assembling them. Recently, I decided to start playing Kings of War, and found these beautiful models languishing in one of my bits boxes. I've also acquired a box of Mantic's werewolves, which seemed like they could be fun to paint up. I also have the GW Start Collecting! Skeleton Horde coming later this May, which should be fun. So, here are some pictures! I added a bit from the Empire State Troops kit for the leader's crown. I also attempted some very basic freehand on the shields, which I will add some detail to when I finish the unit. This unit was painted mainly with washes, which was fun. One of the werewolves. This is the first shade layer, which was a mix of Panzer Aces Shadows Flesh and Flesh Base.
  2. And grizzly ghouls from every tomb are closing in to seal your doom. Poor Kirk.
  3. A litte surprise attack ( No WIP). A quick job , I painted her in 2 hours to try some stuff out. She's from Ironwind Metals ( Ral Partha) and she is a lookalike of Vampirella, only a "bit" more "developed". She might not be nude but she wears so little I decided to link the Pics ..because well she might as well be naked. I had fun painting her and I tried a marble green base, not sure if this worked out, but practice practice...right? Paints involved..The Reaper Vampire Skin Triad..Scale 75 Antares Red, Inktense Red, Chestnut Ink , Elven Gold, Decay Black and Deep Blue. Vallejo Dark Forest Green , Reaper Olive Green Triad. *** Ooohh I like my new outfit...Thx Wolfie!!!

  4. This is just an old ghast from Bones 1 that I have finally gotten around to. I used him as a paint scheme tester for his brothers from Bones 2, which I'll be converting and painting shortly. I like how he looks overall, but I kinda think his skin tone is a little off; I think he looks too 'alive'. What do you think? Blood and gore were done with a hair, superglue, Tamiya clear red, and Tamiya smoke. I'll go into the process in detail if anyone's interested. C&C welcome.
  5. Perhaps my favorite for uniqueness from the recent Hammer and Forge Kickstarter for Song of Blades and Heroes from Ganesha Games, I painted up a group of their Undead Dwarves. I never thought I'd say I painted a Dwarf Vampire or Dwarf Banshee, but now I have!
  6. Over the past 6 months I've been enjoying Kings of War so much that I've started to put together multi-based units for it. I have parts of lots of different armies in various states, but the main one I've concentrated on has been Undead. Though many of my minis are still based singly for versatility, I wanted to drop my all multi-based undead into a single thread. First up was a Mantic Balefire Catapult. I really should rebase to avoid arc of sight arguments, but I like the fact that the crew can sit on the same base as the machine and it has no in game effect one way or the other. Next, I took advantage of KoW's loose rules about number of minis in a base to field a troop of skeleton archers (normally 10 minis) with just 7 minis (helps field bigger armies faster). Looks like two Reaper Bones skellies made it in. I like my Undead to have a somewhat varied look across units, as I imagine that the troops are often pulled from a mixture of armies, so unit cohesion isn't always a concern. Next up is a troop of zombies. A troop of zombies isn't actually a thing in KoW, the smallest unit available is a regiment. The reason I made a troop is for versatility later, as I intend to not only have regiments (20, 5x4) and hordes (40, 10x4), but also Legions (60, 6x10), so I'll need smaller bases to match with my regiment bases to make into legions (two regiment bases and two troops to a Legion). Big Fred in the back is a Bones II mini. I had a hard time getting good pics of my ghouls, probably should've changed out the backdrop. These were one of the first groups that got a lot of airbrush love, using two blue variations for some base-coat directional lighting quickly (Zenithal airbrushing I think is the technique)? It sped things up quite a bit, and I'd try variations on the technique again for sure. A Reaper Bones Ghast makes an appearance, as well as a bat swarm to help fill some space. What Undead rabble would be complete without a metric butt-ton of skeletons? These guys double as skeletons or revenants. I like the base a lot, and though I wish it was more versatile (it counts as a horde of 40), I definitely intend to make more bases this size soon of various units. Older Reaper metals are in there, as well as a big bad from Bones II (the Skeletor-looking guy). Mummies were a more recent addition to my army, I like them and they definitely performed better than I thought, so I might be making another base of these soon. Mostly Bones I guys here, but a few Mantic as well. This next unit was fun, but I wish I had planned the base a bit better, putting at least a second flight stand in, but by the time I did the first the back rank was already filled in, and I didn't want a flight stand in front. Oh well, that just means I have to make another base of these guys! An older Reaper metal anchors the Wraith team in the rear. Thanks for looking!
  7. This is a group of wraiths made by Grenadier figures many, many years ago. I know that the wraith on the round dirt base is Grenadier; his base says so. The rest I'm not certain about, but they look the same, so I'm making an assumption. If I'm wrong, please let me know and I'll correct this post. There isn't much to say about these guys, there's not really a whole lot there. I tried to make them more interesting by putting more effort into the bases, especially the 'floating' guy; I think that worked out very nicely. Tabletop paint; please let me know what you think.
  8. Really just gave him a decent weapon. I think he looks the part.:
  9. In the Iron Kingdoms RPG, if you want to have some ancient ruins/dungeons for the PCs to explore, your go-to ancient boogeymen tend to be the wicked "Orgoth" -- an ancient culture that was in some ways a sort of mish-mash of the bloodiest aspects of the Vikings and the Aztecs, who invaded the continent of Western Immoren from some mysterious fog-shrouded continent across the sea, employing necromancy and other dark arts to crush the local populace, but were eventually driven out when a convergence of events weakened them, and the locals finally rallied. So, crazy catacombs that are part temple, part tomb, part torture chamber, part treasure cache, riddled with secret passages, traps, dangerously magic items, and lingering undead -- that's the Orgoth dungeon in a nutshell, complete with a big-bad insane undead warrior and his eternal court in some cobwebby throne room. Furthermore, the Orgoth employed certain magics to delay natural processes of decay and ruin -- and these magics tend to become unstable over time -- so basically I have an in-universe reason to be inconsistent with how I depict the stage of decay of any particular part of the tomb (thus allowing for skeletons still wearing robes and/or armor, for instance). The way to make it distinctive, however, is to have lots of spiky bits, and for everything to have grimacing faces (perhaps out of anger, perhaps in torment, perhaps both). That goes for the models as well. Several of the new Bones undead figures are perfect for this. Reaper 77201 "Dragoth the Defiler" is great for the leader of the undead hordes -- the sort of character that, when a PC pokes his head into a chamber and sees him, anyone who has the least bit of sense starts contemplating the wisdom of a tactical retreat. To give him a more distinctive "Orgoth" look, I used some epoxy putty to sculpt a big ugly "frowny face" in the gap at the top of the throne, and another on his chestplate. The Orgoth are known for wielding larger-than-life swords, distinctive for having glowing embossed images of swarms of faces on each side of the blade; the figure already came with a sword held in the left hand, but for some reason even though it was posed as if the undead lord was resting his hand on the grip, with the blade tip downward, the plastic sword tip didn't actually touch the throne or base. I found a pewter sword blade that I think was originally from a Heartbreaker Hobbies Nepharite of Algeroth (Warzone / Mutant Chronicles), and attached an Ogre Kingdoms gauntlet, topped with a random head/skull as an over-sized pommel. (The gauntlet is way too large, but I imagined it could be a magical artifact enchanted to help wield that "surf-sword" with one hand. The other figures are a mix of Bones figures I picked either for being obviously undead (77237 through 77245), or some evil Pathfinder warrior-types (89029, 89030, 89032). For the skeletons, I added some putty to those with shields, to give them that Orgoth grimace. 89029 "Hellknight Order of the Scourge" just looks like an evil knight, but he's got the horns, and with a little bit of putty I was able to turn the strange shield design into another frowny face. 89030 "Hellknight Order of the Nail" is perfect for Orgoth right off with his grimacing chestplate. Even so, I added another ugly face to his shield. 89031 "Whispering Tyrant" isn't shown here, but I'm turning that one into an Orgoth "Excruciator" (ghostly torturer). 89032 "Anti-Paladin" is so perfect for an Orgoth warrior that I bought some extras. Not only is there a big hideous face on the shield, but he's got horns and skulls ... and the bare face is so exaggerated in its grimace that I've just painted it up as an Orgoth "death mask." I painted up the Deathless with glowing green on the blade, and tried to do a "cast light" effect on nearby surfaces. Somehow, a lot of the details ended up turning out a lot more yellow than I'd intended; while that's probably fine for the skeletons, the bit of human (?) skin on the front (with a visible hand) was meant to be more of a leathery brown. And here are most of the stars of the Orgoth court (various skeletons off-stage in varying degrees of progress). I am thinking of making a few "courtiers" of some sort, though most skeletal types would be wielding weapons and such. I may just have to dig through the Bones pile and find some models (I have an excess of "hero/adventurer" types) and do some conversions to make them undead servants (musicians, etc.) instead.
  10. Finished this up at *mumblety* o'clock last night this morning. It's my first attempt at OSL, so I definitely welcome feedback. I'm overall pretty satisfied, but I think the cast light on the torso is too harsh. I got a bit carried away, which makes me sad on account of it more or less obliterated the work I did on the body. I spent some time researching what human decay actually looks like because I wanted her to look corpse-y rather than ghost-y, and I was quite proud of how the flesh came out--realistic but not too off-putting. I wish I'd taken pictures of that. :/ Anyway, I wanted to take a "death positive"/memento mori approach with this piece; more of a "guide for the dead" than a threatening presence, hence the softer palate and the lush landscaping on the base. Ultimately I'm hoping she'll go well with Tombstone of Protection (03738) and Tombstone of Sorrow (03737) as a nice little vignette.
  11. And now, by request, I present a lich with a flaming skull. Flavor Text: After the cultists opened the rift, and were promptly eaten, all manner of strange beast came though. Most fearsome were the Liches, commanders of the undead. The fed from the fresh battlegrounds and quickly the Rebels and Redcoats formed an easy peace to take on this new threat.
  12. I decided to paint up my zombicide mini's in groups so as not to burn myself out so much. Here another of the 1st group zombies. The Group: Runner #1: Runner #2: Fatty #1:
  13. So I started the year off with some speed paints of some of my zombicide figures. Zombie #1 was a base coat wash and highlight method. I didn't really like how it came out. But it is only a tabletop. Zombie #2 I decide to give the shaded basecoat method another go. I like how it turned out overall. So I decided to continue with that method and go with a blue theme for the rest of them. Zombie #3: Zombie #4:
  14. Finished these tonight. I think I've posted the vampire before, but I based her, so that's new. Now I am just missing three dregs, and the warband is ready to play:
  15. Making a Mordheim warband mostly for fun, as I don't have any locals to play with, but maybe it can create a little wave among the local Necro players. :D So I bought these really cool minis from Heresy. Three ghouls and a necromancer. I am going to need five ghouls total, three dregs and a vampire, but first things first. I've based them and shaded, and are currently waiting for them to dry: Based bronze skin tone: Shaded with plenty of Agrax Earthshade: Could not help myself. The necromancer was pointing at something, and I added another 'finger' from the sprue remains. Based with grey:
  16. Reaper Bones 77204 "Cassiatta" (92609 from KS II) converted with spare arms from "Grind" board game, random 40K Ork bitz, and wire I went through the Bones gallery and pinned this down as 77204 "Cassiatta" (AKA 92609 from the Bones II Kickstarter). I guess it's supposed to be a Dark Elf warrior, given the pointy ears and pointy just-about-everything and general "nasty" vibe. Original Mini from Gallery: I had some brief musings of painting such a figure up humorously with lots of stitches and scars on the suspiciously-exposed patches of elf flesh (as contrasted with the HUGE SHIELD and pointy shoulder pads, which don't seem to be viable accessories if your defense strategy is to *dodge* all the incoming attacks -- but, hey, Dark Elves are just ALL ABOUT the Dark Elf look) but I didn't do anything with it, because I've got a HUGE PILE of Reaper Bones minis and more immediate figures that need some paint. Until now. In our Iron Kingdoms / Unleashed campaign, the GM has decided to make use of Cryx (magical steampunk undead) adversaries, and I happen to have a Cryx army, but for an encounter, he wanted a Brute Thrall ... and wouldn't you know? I haven't any of those, and it seemed excessive to rush out to spend $18 on a figure that's a slightly-glorified mook that'll probably only appear in a single encounter and then only briefly. Now, a Brute Thrall normally looks like this: That's a 40mm base. Big, bulked-up undead magical-steampunk guy with HYOOGE fists, and smokestacks coming out back. However, those silly sculptors at Privateer Press came up with a "convention-exclusive" alternate-sculpt Brute Thrall (AKA the "Femme Fatale") that's on the same 40mm base, with the same game stats, but it looks like THIS: (I'm getting a slight "Bride of Frankenstein" vibe here, I think on account of the high cheekbones and the pulled-back "hair" / headpiece.) Now, I thought, I just might be able to convert something that at least looks a little like this. So, I picked out "Cassiatta" (77204) from the Bones box, because I had a female warrioress type with some exposed skin (that I could paint stitches on), some arms that are AWAY from the body (so they can be trimmed off and replaced), and she's one of the taller female figures (since while the fists will still be laughably huge, I suppose there's some vague point where if the body is too small, it would just look ludicrous). The replacement arms are spare Cygnar Runner arms from the "Grind" board game (since I was able to get it on sale, a great source of cheap plastic Khador and Cygnar warjacks as baselines for customizing for the RPG, rather than chopping up a much more expensive pewter model). They're pinned, of course, since there's no way glue alone would support that sort of attachment. The back piece is from a grab-bag bunch of Warhammer 40000 Space Orks. It's some sort of exhaust-pipe thing that might have been originally intended for an Ork vehicle of some sort, but since I don't have the vehicle to go with it, it doesn't matter much. The great thing about cobbled-together undead armies (especially STEAMPUNK undead) is that I don't have to worry about finding the exact same piece twice, because there's no enforced uniform code in the undead force; they're all cobbled together, so variety is good. For the added cables, I used my standard fallback for add-on vague-tech cabling circa the 1990s: I take a piece of safety wire (a slightly thicker gauge) and then spiral-wrap some of my very thinnest picture-hanging wire around it, and snip to length, with a little leftover space for the interior wire to extend to fit into the drilled holes at each point of attachment (and I use some needle nose pliers to carefully bend it around to something resembling a curve between points A and B). There's no need to paint it metallic, because it already IS metallic (although I went back and dry-brushed with a "platinum white metallic" for some added highlight shine). I painted the fleshy areas very pale ("Denim Blue" base, then "Snowflake White"), and free-handed some "stitches" with one of my older brushes with only 3-4 strands left together to paint very, very thin lines. ... Oh yeah, and in the actual encounter, the big bad Brute Thrall went down like, SPLAT. Hmm. Okay, so that was a little anticlimactic, but I guess to be expected. The more a mini stands out, the more the PCs are going to prioritize pounding on it, right? I still had more fun, I figure, than if I'd struggled to cobble together something from my "bitz box" that looked like a "standard" Brute Thrall. :)
  17. I actually finished these guys around Halloween, but only just got around to taking decent pics. Just basic army painting, a lot of quickshade ink in these photos. I'd been thinking about putting a big zombie into a unit of Mantic ones for a while, when I remembered the Zombogre from Bones 2. So I put him on a 20x40mm base (40x40 was too big for just him) and I think the result is pretty cool.
  18. Just a couple of speed-painted zombies. I think the second zombie's shirt probably should have been highlighted, but I didn't really feel like putting in more than a minimal effort into a couple of zombies. One thing that is kind of cool, is that the snow picked up some of the colour from the wash that I used on the leaf litter, so it's got a sort of muddy, dirty snow thing going on. Which for a couple of walking corpses is pretty neat.
  19. Just some quickly done skeletons to knock about Frostgrave. Individual pics: I will say that the axe blade came out looking quite nice.
  20. Since more people are showing off what they did last year, here are mine: Minis I painted in 2015. ( seems I have been busy) I will link them so you can check them out. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66228-54mm-maria-roseblade-pirate-queen-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65908-pumpkin-witches-and-their-house-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65484-legendarion-hyena-warrior-bust-gebhuza-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64977-zombicide-survivor-dog-painted-as-my-boxer-brutus-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63196-bonnie-chonoscope-by-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60500-77117-vandorendra-snake-demon-bones/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/63938-kabuki-bust-ky-ra-female-barbarian-16-scale-xherman1964/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61631-xherman1964-paints-a-ral-partha-hill-troll/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62215-beloved-of-sobek-by-xherman1964-crocodile-games/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61632-stygian-guardian-chronopia/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61214-77100-vanja-fire-giant-queen-bones/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60959-undead-regiment-in-a-swamp-mixed-manufacturers/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60445-zombie-grenadier-horseman/
  21. As the title hopefully implies, my objective is to paint some several Zombicide Season 1 zombies quickly (for me) in January. They are going to be tabletop standard, as I want to use them for my game as soon as possible. With those goals in mind, I have taken a row from the group (4 walker, 2 runners, and 1 fatty) and begun to prep them up and paint them. The first one is complete and (in my mind) completely horrible, so no pictures of him. The 2nd one from my Jan set is another walker. I've spent approximately 2 hours on her total (including priming, no of lines). Now I've decided that I will actually do marginal line cleaning. Which will result in me having to reprimer a few of them. I base coated her a bit darker than I usually would for her base coat on the skin. I think on the next I will do that for all the colors. The rest were done normal mid tone. I then quickly applied 2-4 highlights where I thought they were needed. Then I applies a dark brownish wash all over. Followed by a 2nd wash only in the darkest areas. Next I reapplied highlights and added some details. It still needs sealer applied. But for the time I think it came out ok. I plan to follow this for the rest of my zombies, hoping that as I gain practice I will speed it up and refine it. Gore will follow on later zombies. I wanted a few relatively blood free for variety. This is my next walker. I applied RMS black primer as an experiment. With the (possible) cold winter days of the northeast on the way, I wanted an alternative to spending days cleaning and priming. I'll see how it goes. Now follows the rest I plan to paint in Jan:
  22. A couple that I decided to finish up, Mr Bones (77195) from Kickstarter 1 and the third Chton (77228) I own, this time painted as a blue flower.
  23. Hi, Ive just realized that i have very few skeletons for my d&d campaigns; I stared with Dragoth, in few days i will finish some more undead from Wargames factory and wright from GW. I think dragoth is excellent mini for main boss in d&d campaign and he is sooo cheap in bones version, sadly details are not too good (especially skulls) and i switch his head for skull from WF skeleton warriors. Comments are welcome!
  24. I finally got around to finishing up the base and sealing my KS2 Mr. Bones. He was an experiment in a few new things. One came out pretty good, the copper lantern. The other a learning experience, black robe. I learned I need to increase the volume of my dark color if i'm going to get this formula to read as black. Ah well... Here are a couple of photo's of the finished Mr. Bones:
  25. Hi all, I am continuing my quest of getting everything painted for the board game Dungeon Saga. This time I completed the expansion called "The Return of Valendor". This expansion is a continuity of the base game and re-uses the same heroes and undead villains. It only adds up 2 new miniatures: - Ba'el: an undead demon awoken by the necromancer - Valendor: some kind of deity who initially defeated the afromentioned demon and who's spirit will give a hand to the adventuring party. The painting on these has nothing really special about it (and not really worthy of a show-off. But I'm still posting for completeness sake). The spear on Valendor was very badly warped, and no matter how much I boiled/straightened/cooled it, it always slowly warped back to something awkward. So that didn't motivate me to go out of my way for painting it. For Ba'el, i didn't really expect it to come out so gory and chalky looking. But i wasn't happy by how the first few attempts turned out (too dark, not enough contrast, etc...) so i kept adding somewhat randomly layers of paint i had on my desk. And that's how it turned out...
