  1. So while I'm currently running a game already, I've been jonesing to create a new setting. I don't know if it's because my current game is edging on the two-year mark (!) and that part of my brain is just getting antsy, or if it's because I'm afraid for the possible TPK in a few weeks (my PCs are hell bent on fighting a CR25 dragon at level 12), but whatever the case, I've been slowly chipping away at a new setting for my next game. Yesterday I began work on the map! For reference, the scale is 6 miles to a hex. So this is a pretty expansive area.
  2. Hey all, as I mentioned in the show off thread for my Hydra, my next major miniature to paint is my take on Narthrax, in Bones. Well I just started tonight, having assembled the dragon, but not having glued him to his base, as can be seen below. For tonight, all I have done is to give him a simple black undercoat, using tube acrylic.. Unfortunately right now I do not have access to Reaper's own paints, but I make do! This took me an hour and a half, though not constantly painting, using a size 0 brush. This is because I am also using this as practice for a Buglips challenge at
  3. I started painting Narthrax the other day, and I've worked on him a little more today... So the bulk is done, I'm mostly at details and basing and stuff atm. However, to try and make sure I stick with this, I've decided to pop up a WIP thread. So this is where I'm at =] Yep, I'm still painting on a tray, on a teatowel, on my couch =P
  4. Thelgar is my current project. Working through the base coats at the moment. I'm planning on highlighting the skin up through the moss colors triad. I haven't been able to decide what I want to do with the belt and scabbard yet. Since this is for a tabletop game I'm probably not going to get too fancy. I'm going to repaint the front cloth with 9418 Oceanic Blue and highlight it with the 9419 Tropical Blue that's on it. Any suggestions or comments would be more than welcome!
  5. So after having a brief start a few years ago in the painting journey that got interrupted by various life events, I have finally gotten the painting bug back and am starting in on some tabletop figures while I try to wrap my head around how I want to paint some of my various Bones and old assorted RPG figures. The tabletop figures have an obvious advantage in that once I settle on a scheme, they all kind of just flow from there so its a bit easier to figure out how I want to paint them. That said, I am still operating at a bit of a disadvantage while I slowly gather proper supplies/tools
  6. It's been quite some time since I posted some minis here let alone a WIP. And joining the google hangout reminded me I really should ( thank you for that) . I apologize I switched jobs a few months ago and my life had been a little abnormal since. I also am kinda moved to Lancaster, Pa so if any fellow forum members are out this way, give me a shout I'd love to meet up to paint, game or just chat. Anyway on to the mini. I started Jahenna months ago to use as a test piece to try out a new mix for flesh. Since I finished up everything else on my desk, I figured I'd give her some more time,
  7. Fractured Dimensions' Bearded Devils are currently on the paint-table. Great looking Paul Muller sculpts. One tricky bit is the deeply recessed (as in virtually inaccessible) areas under the kilts (a situation admittedly worsened by basing prior to painting). A heavy initial slathering of black paint (1st picture) has hopefully prevented headaches down the road. (I'll keep my fingers crossed. Murphy's Law suggests a different outcome.) The second picture shows the base colors blocked in. As per recent efforts in the devil department, it's Reaper Cinnamon Red skin and Vallejo Vermillion ki
  8. Ok, so I had to move this one to the front of my desk even though I'm working on too many other things right now. This is Dark Sword's new bust: Portrait of a Young Tiefling based on the T. Diterlizzi painting, sculpted by T. Meier. I loves it!! So, I recently took a class on painting realistic skin, and I thought I could use the practice. I grabbed a photo online of Mila Kunis to use as my model, because I wanted to do a bronzed skin. My theory here is to use a red- yellow skin. I'll contrast that with green. I'll also incorporate cream, black and gold. Overall, I'll keep th
  9. I've been looking to do a WIP for a while now but couldn't quite think what to do. So, after going through my collection of oldies, I decided to give this a crack: This was an old set of D&D Dungeon Adventurers by Citadel Miniatures & contained 8 character class minis plus a treasure chest. I started painting these many, many, many years ago but didn't get very far & never quite finished, as this pic shows....... also, whilst rummaging through my oldies, I found the partner set: which contains these D&D Monsters: and they go together, so I
  10. There is a dude who hosts an online painting and chat time through Google Hangouts. It's tons of fun. I have attended several, and met quite a few characters in the process. Overall, they are great group of people who share in my hobby of painting. Here is one of the pieces I was working on while chatting tonight. Its part of a desert theme I have been working on. There is also a scorpion, a group of gnolls, and a group of kobolds The worm will be a boss of sorts, offering my players a hefty challenge. He is still a WIP, but so far, I am really liking the way everything is coming out. Th
  11. OK folks this is my most recent attempt at painting. I decided to do this mini in the color scheme of the Protectorate of Menoth from Warmachine. Basically I am doing a test paint to acclimate myself to the colors and techniques that I will use as I begin painting several minis for the Mk III release of Warmachine. I need some help though, I have had several missteps in this paint thus far and am struggling to see this as a success. 1) How should I highlight the white? Should I do darker tones around the highlight areas? 2) Should I use some liner to try and add some more contrast
  12. Working on this Female warrior. Very happy with it so far.
  13. When I do a WIP, I try to do something I haven't really tried before, just to keep expanding my skill set. This time, I'm going to borrow an idea from Pingo's WIP on Deathsleet (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59960-pingo-tackles-77110-deathsleet/?p=1082463) and try paint a black dragon with an iridescent color. The process is going to be a bit different, though. Instead of interference paint, I have a pack of pearlescent pigments I purchased in the past, but haven't really used yet: It probably works a lot like interference colors, but with mixing involved; measure
  14. I've been working on two of the minis that came with my Reaper Bones Learn to Paint kit. I've tried to follow the directions pretty much step-by-step, and I think they're coming along pretty well. Some observations I've made as a new painter: 1) Separated paints need be shaken very thoroughly, even sometimes to the point of popping off the dropper cap and stirring them with a toothpick or something similar before shaking them. Big thanks to Mad Jack and Inarah for pointing this out and suggesting getting some small glass beads to drop in the bottles and act as agitators. I never would
  15. Whew! So I had a busy weekend. Still recuperating. I had the awesome opportunity to travel to Reaper HQ (nice bones prototypes floating around there...) and take a Master class with Kirill Kanaev (Yellow One on CMON) who is a fantastic teacher and truly amazing painter! I had a wonderful time, but for much of the class I realized that I could not paint AT ALL. Actually, I'm pretty sure all of us felt that way! Really. I'm not kidding. The style of painting, brushes and technique were completely different than what I was used to. It was a mind-blowing experience. So I'll try to sh
  16. Got tired of painting people, so why not paint some mechs! I tried to go for a really clean separation between the armor plates, I need to go back and darken the lines around the feet I think. I plan on bringing the orange up super bright, almost to a yellow. That part might be a bit tricky though, as I don't actually have any orange paints and have just been mixing red and yellow XD. We'll see how it turns out. I'll also be finding some fun symbols or ID numbers to put on the white spots on the back and the side of the cockpit. I don't have any idea what color I'll pa
  17. For my first ever WIP and my first ever entry in the Reaper yearly contest I thought I'd start with... This guy http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/cyclops/sku-down/14396 He will be on... This thing I made I started making the base for the pathfinder red dragon who was going to be painted up as a swamp dragon. Well,that never happened. I've decided to use it for this guy and his goblin friend instead. I'm not quite finished with it. I still need to add more stuff, swamps are full of stuff. I'm also thinking it could use a tree with some vines behind were the figure w
  18. This is the year to finish (or at least make major progress on) the epic Dragons Don't Share bones II model. To start with, the washing... and the boiling... And finally, the base elements are ready for cleaning: More details can be found here and here. More to come in the weeks ahead.
  19. Continuing the WIP from http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64819-lexomatics-fall-2015-wip I'll be working on my shelf of shame minis, trying some bones 2 anhurians, some outstanding hearthstone minis, and maybe some more animals and skeletons, and ice walls and slimes. Also some zombicide crows (as lots of different birds
  20. After receiving my Krackotoans from Dragon Bait, I thought I'd work on a bunch of related undersea encounters (mostly from Bones)
  21. This is my very first WIP topic here, and my very first time painting minis at home. My prior experience is painting about 15 minis in one-hour paint-and-take sessions at Reaper's booths at various PAX conventions over the last year. That's done with brushes that have been pretty beat up by other convention-goers, no palette suitable for thinning paints, and of course a rather short period of time. It was a lot of fun, it got me hooked, and I had a few results I'm actually pretty happy with, but I feel like a complete beginner about to paint his very first mini. I have never really done one be
  22. Started a new barbarian (of course), this is the one I got from Catacombs. He made his way towards the front of the queue pretty quickly after I received him. His name is Torgils the Black Wolf More pics later!
  23. I am currently working a conversion of the "50281: Dr Charles Bennet, Steampunk Hero" Reaper figure to use for a Mutant Alchemist/Mage I am playing in a MSHRPG (FASERIP system) game I am playing in. Since I did not think of taking a photo of the miniature before I started working on it so here is the image from the Reaper webstore instead. All the images I post will be links to larger versions in-case someone wants to see them since they show more detail. To start with I am going to replace the rifle with a sword, but I plan to add some more things (like a magic tome) if I can f
  24. Got a few miniatures in progress! Still struggling with taking decent photos, but my phone can only do so much I think. I may dig around in the settings to see if there's anything I can do to maybe improve the quality. These guys are being made for my Pathfinder group! Just have a few touchups left on them along with the bases to do. The orc is for the cleric, the lizardman is our druid, and the halfling paladin already had a mini for her character so I modified the Leprechaun and Owl mini to make her riding owl (added more fluff to the legs and removed the leprechaun)! I'm really h
  25. Since Inarah post a end of year painting binge I though I give it a go, but at my pace. She is attempting 20 in 10 days. I'm attempting 3+ in 10 days. Which for me is speed painting. Granted one is over halfway. A second it 90% finished, just working on the base. The third will be the hasslefree's strumpet. So... Um.... Yeah.... Binge painting. The + is any other work I managed to get done on top of those. Here is a shot the strumpet: And here is my current WIP that I hope (or dream) to get finished by Xmas:
