  1. This is the 3D printable forest from Signum Games. I bought a physical copy from a seller on Etsy to use as a background for my minis. It is printed in 32mm scale, but only tiny 28mm figures fit in it. The young forest dragon (DHL #3332) and Unicorn foal (DHL #2207) are here to better show the scale. Might need to buy another version in 74mm...😁
  2. Here is the Warlord Unicorn, #14457. I like the dynamic action of this pose. It feels like he is ready to stomp and skewer someone. And we will just call those mold lines 'battle scars.' Did anyone else have trouble trying to get rid of those? I could not smooth the seam on the horn down. He was painted with a pale blue undertone to his coat, and a pale mauve to his mane, tail and feathering. The undertones were lightened up by adding pearl white (#9100) to each layer. I plan to do another one of these in black, once I get my hands on a pearl black bottle. Group shot!
  3. 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 Ral Partha Legacy, going to have to now move on to something different I guess, maybe some Reaper Bones.....
  4. 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't plan on spending as much time on this as I did and wish now that I had spent more time on cleaning up the mold lines. Townsfolk sage 03858 I saw some examples of this figure painted and thought I could do a better face than what I saw. I did not. The face on this figure was way harder than I first thought. The eyes are deeply set and the face if very round and smooth. The glasses are a trick to get right too.
  5. 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 storage after the holidays. Two bits of background. This isn't the first time I've gifted someone decades younger than me some painted mini figures. The first set was to my two nieces and nephew. We were visiting them for Christmas a long while ago, and I took them all to a local hobby store. The middle niece asked her father for one of the Bones dragons, $4.95 retail I believe, and he wouldn't get it for her because she'd have to paint it. Oh ho ho ho! It was one from the KS's, so I knew I had it. Painted it up after we got home, and decided that the other two would need ones as well. But for them, I did a drider and another unicorn if I remember right. Anyway, gave it to them during our summer visit and they loved them. Then, about two years ago, I found out they weren't allowed to play with them because "your uncle painted that for you". OMG. No, no, no, no, no! That was not the right thing to do! *sigh* They are all older and not into playing with action figures now. Hopefully, they'll grow into it. So I was determined to not let that happen this time, but I ran into a snag. Didn't have the unicorn. Reaper is out of stock. Panic! I've set my mind in motion and Must Have One. I find one online at a store that won't be mentioned, buy it, buy a bit more to fill in for shipping, and wait. And wait. And wait. Took two weeks for them to finally ship! And this was the first of December, but I still have time to paint 'em. And then I wait. And wait. And wait! Now I'm panicking, because it's three days before Christmas, but the package finally shows up! With only the Xwing filler toy I put in for grins. Turns out, by the time they got to my order, gee willerkers, they were out of stock! So rather than contact me, they just shipped what they had. Which I only bought to fill in the shipping tier. Oh, right, right. You should get refunded for those other two. Guess who lost a customer for life? But now I'm panicked and I need a unicorn! I decide that as large of a mountain of figures I have, I should have a unicorn in there somewhere. I find some dragons, and think, well, I might paint those up instead. I also find hippos, but I discard the idea of modding them to hippocorns. Nothing seems to pop out, and I'm digging through when I find some GW Brettonian knights. Hey! Cavalry! HORSE! I start looking through the sprues, and one of the knight head options is ... DUN DUN DUN! Unicorn! Okay. My mind starts racing on how to convert the horse to a unicorn, when my wife comes down to ask me a question. I stand up and the spinner with a ton of figures is slightly in my way, so I spin the rack to see her... and spy the rotten unicorn I tried to buy. I had one already! *insert face palm here* Well, enough exposition. This is a show off thread. Three days of frantic painting, and the below is the result. Her favorite color was dark blue, so that's what the unicorn became. Figured his friends needed to be the two dragons. Rocky I envisioned as a yellow dragon, and the red hatchling... stayed red. Quick paint jobs all around. The blotchy blue doesn't really look that way when held, so I'm not sure what's going on there. Anyway, shut up, show pictures
  6. I took these pictures during the WIP phase of my gift for Fealron.
  7. 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. White brush on primer, Black on the base. I tried a little experiment with the base coat to give the bone a more orange look: 1:1 Ruddy Flesh:Desert Stone. It may become my go-to for bone work.
  8. 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 shoulders. I took the Sphinx's wings, and cut off the tabs, then shaped them best I could to fit the shoulder profiles of Silverhorn, before drilling a hole to pin them with. Next up is glue and green stuff. I have a feeling he's going to droop over time. Not sure if I'm going to attempt to pin his back legs(s), but at a minimum, I'll probably glue him to a 50mm base to keep him upright, even if he droops.
  9. 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.
  10. 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 of the Silverhorn, removed the horn and did some filing and sculpting to get it to join properly to the body of the wendigo. Very minimal green stuff use outside of filling seams; I filled in the wendigo's hooves, which were cloven, and rebuilt a bit of the mane so it joined smoothly with the rest of the body. And I saved the body of the unicorn. At some point I'll have to convert it into a centaur!
  11. 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 like them.
  12. 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
  13. 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...
  14. 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 main body is painted in Denim Gray, with shadows of Charcoal Gray, while the fiery areas go from White to Golden Yellow to Neon Orange to Scarlet Red. The horn is painted Metallic Brown, with the ridges of the horn highlighted in Inca Gold, and the ridges on the "fire side" of the horn have dots of Neon Orange to suggest projected/reflected light.My justification for this creature was that in the Warmachine game, Feyora (a major heroine for the Protectorate of Menoth) is at one point portrayed as riding a horse with mane and tail of flames, with barding that includes some "exhaust pipes" extending from its shoulders. Perhaps those "exhaust pipes" are redirecting the magical flame that would otherwise be blasting out of the shoulders as I've portrayed here? (Although Feyora is likely immune to fire anyway, since that seems to be popular for priests of Menoth.) No such creature is covered in the official "fluff," but I decided for my own campaign to invent a creature known as the "Aethon" (named after one of the horses pulling the Sun Chariot in myth), which are horses descended from the first steeds granted by Menoth when he gave the Four Gifts of Civilization to primitive humans. My idea is that the Protectorate maintains a small herd of the creatures, but that they're so wild and rambunctious that they're rarely ever actually put to use for anything -- so Feyora's use of one as a mount is seen as a sign of special favor from Menoth. In addition, the idea is that some of these horses, through various misadventures, might have been abandoned or lost, and hence have gone wild, posing a potential threat to unwary travelers who startle them.
  15. 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 been waiting forever for a restock, and some rats because they always useful. One day I will also paint up all my kobolds and there will be a great and terrible battle (and realistically, the goblins will win because there are twice as many). Unpainted photo soon - the minis are all currently drying. I will only prime/ base coat today due to leaving for game in 5 hours. Paging @buglips*the*goblin: I want to make sure I'm not painting diseased goblins. If I remember correctly, blue is a no? tanned through yellow, orange, reddish tinges are okay, and green too?
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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 things from the yard. I couldn't find one exactly the way I wanted, so I cut and glued in pieces until I had what I wanted. #3 A spray primered piece of floor tile for the base, with a framework for the hill I wanted. The hill bit is the cardboard from the middle of one of those drink carrier things, Gorilla glued onto the base. I used Gorilla glue rather than one of the other kinds for enhanced sturdiness throughout. #4 I didn't want too much green or too much brown for my ground cover, so I mixed some static grass with old coffee grounds. #5 Putty time! #6 The oil slick, aka black primer so I'd have a steady color under my grass. #7 Some steps along the way getting my ground cover in. #8 I covered up the unicorn because for the last step I wanted an extremely light dusting representing the first snow of the year, but I didn't want any on him. *** edit *** Have to do a second post with the finished product, ran out of allowable photos. Also I didn't get the steps above each photo, but I think ya'll can figure it out.
  20. 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? Suggestions please!
  21. Found something hiding in my drawer-full-o-minis! How It's Painted...
  22. 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 then tried to drybrush back out, but didn't get the gradual change I wanted overall. He's very tabletop, but... To be honest, girly stuff isn't my thing, haha. I like monsters way more. Perhaps I'll buy another and then try and paint that one as the evil twin =P So yeah... Unicorn! My photos are grossly inconsistent atm :S Paints used... Citadel: -Whie Scar -Fenrisian Grey -Drakenhof Nightshade -Ulthuan Grey -Soulstone Blue -Gehenna's Gold -Auric Armor Gold -Abaddon Black -Pink Terror -Seraphim Sepia -Temple Guard Blue And some Vallejo Sky Blue. Urk.
  23. 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 I could do a weapon swap easily enough, and I absolutely adore the figure. My colleague is a russian living in New Zealand, so I went with a Red + Yellow motif for the figure. First of all I put down the base coats: my apologies for the quality of the photos - my normal camera is in the shop. Then I spent some time pretty much screwing the figure up and swapping the weapon out because I forgot to do it before I put down the base coat. This is the finished result: it's not what I'd consider my best work, but it was a lot of fun to get to this point : ) Also, I finished off a project I started last year: 77029: Silverhorn, Unicorn painted up from purple.
  24. 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, visible in these.
  25. 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 my pally, and first things first, his horn had to go. Much angry filing later, I had something I could live with. Don't mind my grotty nails, I get fluff lodged under them from the insides of my gloves at work, so they always look dire, haha. And then I broke out my green stuff. So far, I've only used GS for a little bit of basing interest on Ebonwrath, and on a belt buckle for a cosplay I was doing, so nothing small and fine, really. Armed with my trusty mechanical pencil, I started working on a saddle, bridle, and some other little details for my pally's dear horse, who I have already named Keldoron. I have now ordered some actual sculpting tools, because... Erghhh, my pencil is not the best thing xD though it's served me admirably, all things considered. No doubt I'll still use it from time to time too, and I think my next sculpting purchase will likely be Army Painter's set of tools, for more precision and stuff. The horse is now sprayed, so I'll be LGS'ing to smooth bits and out and reform a bit, and then on to the painting! So m'afraid this will likely be a very short WIP thread, but I kind of couldn't resist ^^; Once he's painted though, I can't decide what to do with his reins... Do I put some wire on for them? Do I glue some string on? I know not. :S
