  1. I decided to participate in "The Ghoul, The Bad, and The Ugly -- Reaper BONES Horror Pageant Challenge" at the end of October. Spent about a week cleaning him up and he was a joy to paint. There are a few more things I wanted to do---but deadlines and no paint time Base was from Secret Weapon's Bag 'O Crap. I added a plaster bottle in the gutter with label and used Secret Weapon water in the gutter as well. The colors are outlined in my WIP. C&C Welcome. If you are interested this is where I started working on him in my WIP: http://www.coolminiornot.com/forums/s
  2. As I mentioned elsewhere, I've been going through some of my oldest Reaper Miniatures and finally (finally!) getting them painted. I'm pretty happy with the results (I consider my target level as "Tabletop+"), but I wouldn't mind some feedback on where I could improve. I used the old Reaper Dark Heaven rulebook for guidance on the character, and Montrig the Bloody is described as covering himself in the blood of his foes, and having an especially gore-encrusted pick. I tried to make it look like older dried blood haphazardly applied to his front, but left the back sides "clean".
  3. Wasn't sure if I wanted to post this one, I was testing out a color selection and custom base. Then I decided that getting additional input to help improve the next mummy. So base was custom base attempt to paint black marble tiles. Nothing special about the tile support other than an attempt to paint rust effect. Thanks for view and any C&C you feel inspired to give.
  4. Only angle I can show within forum's nudity restrictions. More pictures of her and her cohorts on my blog: http://minisbyfinch.blogspot.com/2014/10/under-sea_31.html#comment-form. Part of the recently concluded Zomtober '14.
  5. To simplify things for me I decided start a separated thread for testing out possible mummy paint colors for my Giant Mummy Diorama. Ordered a pack with my last reaper order but thought I start with the one from my KS1. Mixed some Brown Liner with RMS Matt Sealer to make a wash to bring out the details. Glued down some sand to the base to test out Foundry's Sand color triad as well.
  6. After being quite happy with how my skeletons turned out, I thought I'd have a go at some 'test zombies" for my planned zombie horde. Again, liberal use of quickshade inks was the order of the day. I'm particularly happy with the gory bits, which were just MSP Blushing Rose covered in red tone and strong tone quickshade.
  7. I had one of these guys already fully painted, but I was waiting until I had a unit to post in Show Off. What we have here is an Army Painter bone colour spray primer, blocked in colour for clothing, armour and weapons, a quickshade ink wash, a drybrush all over with Reaper Polished Bone, ink washes to bring the colours back up, reapplication of metallics and finally painting the eyes blue and basing. Pretty easy and fast, so I'm confident that I'll be able to crank a bunch of these out and have a couple of hordes in no time - once this spring weather decides to stay fine for more th
  8. So I was reading the thread about the lost gems in the Reaper catalog and thought about one of my first Reaper minis and still a favorite---Reaper War. I did a search on the forumn and couldn't find a painted example, so thought I'd finally quit pestering everyone and actually post a mini to show off. I painted this in the mid '90s I would guess. About all I did at that time was simple dry brushing and controlled washes. I could tweak him, but I like his current state for sentimental reasons. May buy another to paint if I ever get caught up on the mountain of lead. Anyways, hope you en
  9. I was looking for examples of this figure painted. Found none. First?
  10. Here is a shot of a figure I stumbled across in one of my mini-boxes. Not sure who made it or what the mini is aside from a big mummy. I put a bones mummy beside it for comparison. Thinking It's about time I tried a large figure. So I think after I finish Khael (aka Gandwarf), I'll give him the full treatment with a scenic base. Think my skill are finally up to the task.
  11. Well, here's the big Dracolich from Reaper. His base is a CD- I sculpted some rocks to match the rocks that the mini was already standing on. I'm really quite fond of this mini- dragons and zombies go together quite well,a nd his rotting flesh was a real joy to paint. You might not be able to tell from the photos, but the red areas are glossy, making him seem more fresh. Also, I posted him to CMON for anyone who cares to vote.
  12. This isn't a new figure. In fact I painted it about twenty-five years ago (bloody hell!), but I've left it since then gloss varnished and sans-base. I've finally got around to giving it something of a scenic base, and squirting it with matte varnish. Never let it be said that I rush things. It's a Grenadier figure, I believe, and stands about 70mm tall from foot to crown. I've never actually used it in a game, and I really should remedy that.
  13. Based him off a Sally Lightfoot Crab. Because I like my undead creatures to be bright and colorful. Makes them all the more tragic Base is originally a Corpse Field base by Secret Weapon from my Bag O' Crap, which I modified into coral reef shallows. I imagine he's rising out of the ocean and scuttling up onto shore. Don't know if it's very noticeable, but I used a thin layer of realistic water over the base and I dripped some into the hole in his shell as if he's still got water in there after coming up out of the waves WIP link: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/56761-14501
  14. This was by far my favorite of all the bones minis to paint thus far, and my first time experimenting with making my own washes. I used GM Mechrite Red thinned down to get the sort of crusty, infected skin effect over top of all the stitches, and I think it turned out ooookay!
  15. After spending so long on some contest entries, I decided to whip up a quick monster type. Didn't realize he was supposed to be a flesh golem when I started painting; just that he was some sort of freaky undead. This one took two afternoons.
  16. I got Scuttlebones, so I've started painting him! His base is a modified Corpse Field base from Secret Weapon. I'm turning corpses into coral covered rocks I'm going ot painting him like a Sally Lightfoot Crab why? Because I like making undead things all colorful and pretty! It makes the fact they're undead all the more tragic! [like my Nethyrmaul!]
  17. Started on this piece while I am planing a new diorama. Now that I'm looking at it, the bandanna is the same color as the crabs. I think I will change that.
  18. Okay, so I'm probably going to go either this afternoon or tomorrow and pick up a wooden oval base and cork [to be sea rocks on the base] to put Coraldrax on. I had a few questions, as I've never constructed a cork base...is hot glue okay to use? Should I use a different glue to hold it together? What do you recommend to cut it? Xacto knife? Figured I should ask this before going to pick up supplies haha Coraldrax: Main thread with more pictures: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/54577-coraldrax-sea-kaladrax/
  19. This is the undead leviathan from the Arcworlde KS from Warploque Miniatures: He is big and still need a good base. I think I will make another picture with a reaper mini to have a size comparison.
  20. I started out by giving the necromancer a couple shades of ink washes as a way to get to know the sculpt. In doing so I've found details that I would have missed. There was a seam that fell on a skull eye socket. With some work it looks better. The real work started with the cape. A chaotic red solid. Then came some tinting of it and painting in layers of shadow folds. I used a drop of Green Tone Ink to tint my red. By using green, the complimentary of red, it helps punch down the color in a more natural way to my eye. Adding black or black ink would shift the value of the
  21. Here is my King of Ghouls. My goal with the miniature was to create a skin tone that was indicative of an ancient and powerful undead horror. This ghoul has survived countless challenges from untold parties of adventurers. Primitive stitches hold together damage to his skin, whilst unnatural healing takes place underneath it's surface; hinted at by his menacing eyes. "It's skin, is that thing alive or dead...?" - Alric the cleric (shortly before death) The pair of ravens, his liaisons, his scouts, and his scavenging companions...one of whom carries the eyeball trophy of a recent
  22. I took a break from Bones to assemble, prime and paint these astoundingly beautiful undead boogeymen. Assembly was a pain because, while it was actually very simple, Tre sculpts smaller than I can SEE. As a result there was some ham-fisted smooshing, and two of these guys got Bones swords just to make it easier. These were all primed with a medley of Reaper Black Primer and Vallejo Airbrush Black Primer, all brushed on. Currently I prefer the Vallejo, just because it goes on with no thinning, quick and easy. Armour was lightly drybrushed with API Greedy Gold, trying for a bronze or gil
  23. Here is the fine undead captain from Super Dungeon Explore. I rather enjoyed painting him- especially the trimming. He turned out just a bit darker than most of my SDE, but I feel that this is working well with the undead feel. I'll have to give someone pink hair to make up for it.
  24. This weekend I got into a painting mood and finished several pieces, a great worm and a stone golem, and started several skeletons, ghouls, and golems. I started this one and the Banshee last year and wanted to try something different. I started out with a white wash base coat from Apple Barrel white and Reaper's flow improver, took two layers to get a good coverage. I then washed it with GW's Thrakka Green and proceeded to leave them for months. This weekend I finshed this one. I did a heavy drybrush of Meadow Green to knock down some of the green glossyness. For a different spect
  25. Lot of fun painting this one. He appeared to be a lost and corrupted king, very sad story. So I wanted him to have more of a royal look to him and gave him yellow/gold and purple which for some reason I always think of when I picture royalty. Hope you enjoy. :)
