  1. So hello all you Reaperphonics! So finished this one recently. I'd done the other Flying Pink Unicorn, and wanted a slightly different version of pink, so here's what I came up with. This one, like the other fairy ballerinas, was sculpted by Tom Meier inspired by a design from his daughter with his company Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures and now sold by Ral Partha Legacy. Lots of different pictures because it's mini with basically lots angles, not just front and back, hope not too many photos: They are the last of my ballerina fairies that I had from Ra
  2. Minis for this week. I have to get on the ball and finish my current to do pile of minis. I have to get them ready for the campaign and I just ordered a bajillion minis through Bones 5 when it reopened. Luckily I have a little time before they arrive and I am completely overwhelmed. Unicorn 77029 I was just going to speed paint this, but once I started I ended up taking a lot more time on it than I thought. I wanted very subtle highlighting on the white and very smooth blending which came out better than I expected. One mistake I made was not prepping the model better. I didn
  3. Hey all, I don't normally post pictures up of what I've painted but this was a special case and I mentioned it in the Randomness thread. Young lady down the street (2nd grade?) is quite the character and takes my razzing her in stride. We had a long discussion about why she was eating bean bags and her denial of that, for example. Anyway, she managed to talk her parents into buying a very large unicorn lawn ornament for Christmas. I don't see how a unicorn is Christmassy, but she managed it, so I felt that deserved a bit of a reward and I should paint her a unicorn that didn't have to go into
  4. I took these pictures during the WIP phase of my gift for Fealron.
  5. My second project for Fealron marked off a few firsts: First magnetization, first mounted cavalry, first Pugh sculpt. Here you can see the 2mm magnets inserted strategically. This is how he sits mounted. But, I wanted to keep it removable, thus the magnets. I confirmed it would stay in place upside-down! A sharpened paper clip acting as the scaffold for the horn. I also sharpened the lance tip. It comes cylindrical out of the blister. Green putty to make the horn and cover/reinforce the magnets.
  6. I'll need a Pegasus soon for one of the PCs in the D&D 5e campaign I run for my son and his high school friends. The metal Reaper one is lovely, but IMO, too fragile for use with a bunch of rambunctious teens. I was looking around for some options when I saw the Bones Sphinx, and figured her wings would "bolt" onto Silverhorn the Unicorn fairly easily. So here is my attempt to create my own Bones Pegasus, since I can't wait for Bones 5 to deliver me one: I cut off Silverhorn's horn (and set it aside for later), and drilled two holes in the sh
  7. Trying to get back into painting and out of my comfort zone, here is Silverhorn: Nothing wild really, but it was a good exercise in painting up from gray to white. Not perfect but he turned out much better than anticipated, so I’m calling this one a win.
  8. I put two entries into the recent Reaper Facebook Convert and Paint contest. This first one didn't get many votes, which doesn't surprise me as I think not too many people knew what it was and it was on the weirder side. Plus the paint job itself was kind of bland. But I like the idea of it because of what it is. It is a tikbalang - a malevolent, mythical Filipino creature that leads travelers astray or plays tricks on them. It has a horse's head, a bony body, and long, disproportioned limbs. I used these minis to make it. The wendigo's head was chopped off. Then I took the head
  9. Recently @Kangaroorex sent me a Ki'rinn for my Nippon, Land of the Rising Moon Project along with a Asian Dragon, a Chibi Dragon and some candy. I already had one of these Ki'Rinn and decided to paint them in two different versions, brother/sister? Evil/Good? You decide. WIP Here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79416-nippon-land-of-the-rising-moon-by-glitterwolf/& Anyway, as with the Asian Dragon I wanted to show their unnatural appearance by combining normal paint with metallic highlights. So here they are. Hope you lik
  10. So I'm going to be repainting some D&D Minis for the DDM Guild's Prize support at GenCon 2018. Just really got started last night, but progress is progress. Sorry about the crappy phone picture. So, I'm gonna be keeping track of my progress here. My deadline is the first full weekend of July, the 8th or so. As I'll need to mail them to someone who is actually attending:( GF
  11. My Druid is circle of the Shepard- she can cast spectral animals to help buff the party. She is also an astrologist with a huge interest in space. She also has the robe of stars... i made her spectral unicorn a space unicorn...because why not? She is also attached (although no reaper) to show the robe I painted...
  12. Reaper Bones #77029, "Silverhorn, Unicorn" (32mm scale plastic fantasy gaming miniature) modified with epoxy putty and mounted on a 50mm round-lipped plastic gaming base, for use as a gaming miniature for Iron Kingdoms RPG. The main modification to the mini itself is really just that I used some epoxy putty to add "shoulder flames," in the same way as I did with my "Urcaenhound. The figure came out of the blister heavily leaning to one side, and with a curved-back horn, but I just decided to work with it rather than trying to straighten it out any further with boiling water. The
  13. So I need to do my Bones 3 Sophie for August because a friend is in town. I decided to also do a small horde of "20" goblins because I will be GMing adventures soon that require some (I think it's officially 22?). I chose not to paint the musicians & standard bearers that are part of ogre command, or the pathfinder pyromancers set I think I have somewhere in my vault of unpainted minis, because that's a lot. I also decided to paint some other stuff of use - the unicorn because I'm currently playing a wild magic sorceror who has already summoned a unicorn twice! a purple worm because I have
  14. WIP This unicorn has a slightly lavender tone because my PC half-drow wild magic sorcerer, Grz'zilda, has already summoned a unicorn a few times through wild magic surges.
  15. Last night's work. Really pleased with parts of this, but just okay with the hair. Also, you'll note that his horn is silver . . . because his name is Silverhorn . . . a travesty that I felt I needed to rectify. For shame, all you people painting this guy without a silver horn.
  16. Here is my take at Silverhorn, showing the good sides (as it is horribly bent if you look at if from the front, horn included). I was never able to fix the bending so I gave up and went ahead with the painting. It is part airbrush and part normal brush. The basing was done following my daughter's request for a desert unicorn.
  17. Okay, this is a WIP of the making of the vignette, not the entire paint process. This is my first post here, so bear with me if I have to modify stuff. If the descriptions come out by the right photos the first time, I'll be pleasantly surprised :-) The post is going to be photo heavy, so I reduced the size of all of them. Hopefully it won't be too bloated. #1 The 99% mostly finished unicorn. -- EDIT -- grabbed the wrong photo, this one also lacks the mane & tail highlighting. If I add the corrected photo it will screw up the order. Whoops :-) #2 I "built" this tree using th
  18. So I'm working on this guy as a gift, and I finally think I've twitched the purple on the body into something I like. For the most part, I also like the red in the mane, tail, and bottom of the legs. However, I am somehow hitting a brick wall when I try to think of what to use for bright highlights on the mane and tail. I don't think any of the reds will be contrast enough, I really don't want to go pink, and I'm hesitant to try yellow for fear it will look too much like flames. Should I use something really far off, like the Sophie silver I blended into the horn? Or something else? S
  19. Found something hiding in my drawer-full-o-minis! How It's Painted...
  20. From my drop in on London, I also bought a unicorn. Hell yeah. I decided to do a classical pretty unicorn paint, and I had all these grand ideas of soft blue hued whites and stuff... And it all went horribly wrong because I drybrush a lot and am less than amazing at blends. Partly white blends. I actually ended up just outright covering up all the Vallejo paint on here (on the mane, tail, and legs) and just going to town instead with my usual GW paints, and then tried out my new Soulstone blue over all that. I was pleasantly surprised. I ended up putting in loads of shade on him which I t
  21. Hi, I'm Laoke and you may remember me from such threads as Bones! Do They Sink or Drown? and Reaperbryan, Like Unto A Tiny God?. I haven't been painting much of late: been planning fiendish evil plans (mainly around swapping jobs, cities, and marrying the twisted evil artist of my dreams). But a colleague of mine started a D&D campaign and asked if she could have a figure to represent her axe-wielding Paladin o'Shield Bashing Doomâ„¢. And, like the fool I am, I said yes! I took in my stash of human female fighters with shields, and she chose 77094: Trista, the White Wolf - I figured
  22. The survey mentioned unicorns or winged beasts, nothing boring or pink. I had done winged creatures for my last 2 exchanges ... I thought unicorns need to come in more colors than just white (good) and black (evil) how about bay? and what if I included a woman with the same hair and skin colors? I originally planned for the three on a single base, but I couldn't make the positioning work. Instead the unicorns and warrior got their own bases, but using the same technique, so they could all be occupying a single meadow. I am pretty sure I went back and fixed the paint chipping
  23. In my Pathfinder group, I have a paladin who is fast approaching level 5, and I've decided that she'll be getting a nice shiny mount as her Divine Bond. As such, the quest for a mini began. While Reaper has a nice bundle of horses, I couldn't find anything that was quite right for my pally, so I ended up grabbing Starmane and commencing a conversion. Starmane I originally bought to convert into a centaur, but I hadn't got round to it and then I decided he was just too pretty to chop up to that degree... But I've not got a lot of use for unicorns. So instead, he got adopted for m
  24. Ok, so let's not even talk about how long ago I started on this mini and just focus on the fact that I completed it, yes? Yes. Highlights are getting drowned out, especially on the body. I redid these pics 4 times for that fact. I would go outside and take some daylight pics, but it is currently storming. Regrets: The super obvious mold lines on the chest and not doing a better job of unbending the horn Overall though, I'm pretty pleased with how he turned out. C&C always very, very welcome! ETA some natural light pics by the back door - you can see the water g
  25. Painted up this stallion for the wifey.
