  1. So this past week I painted Elquin, High Elf Adventurer, from the Bones I Heroes Set. As I looked at this figure and considered how to paint him, there was something about his outfit that struck me as very Napoleonic in appearance. So, I got the idea to paint him in the style of a French soldier from that era. In general I'm pleased with how he came out, especially the face. And I think the Napoleonic look suits him well. For the full painting write-up, please see my Bones painting blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/08/elquin-high-elf-adventurer-figure-166.html
  2. Frostgrave Warband, includes the following minis from Reaper In order top to bottom. 77159,77175, 77024, 61011,89017,61025, 77066,03255 . One miniature of unknown origin as well, the blue feathered cloak mini in last place. Please feel free to comment if you know what it is :) ! Fun game, and great in that any minis will work for it!
  3. Hi, first post. I'm going to start posting pics of my Reaper miniatures here. I'll start with Gossamer.
  4. An Orky (GWorkshop Orc with two weapons) A Muddy Hedge Wizard Reaper 02905: Arthur Wanderhat A Ghost Knigget (GWorkshop Knight of the Realm) A Saffron Skink (GWorkshop Lizardman model) Yet another archer (GWorkshop Bretonnian) A GWorkshop Cold One Raptor Dinosaur Strangely these look better in the photo than in real-life. I am reasonably pleased with the big lizard. Some of the others the camera is being kind. I will try to get more pics Saturday. Link to June Page: Resolutionary Challenge
  5. I've started painting minis again, since this winter. I used to do some in my twentys but did not take the hobby seriously as i do now. For the last few months i've been furiously looking for my old models without success, until today! They are ral partha pewter models from the 1990's. I did not remember i had the rats , the neanderthal and the rhino, it was quite a surprise when i found them. The paint is chipped but i will remove it & redo'em. The wizards and the storm giant were done without primer, had no idea i should do that back then. All the models were done without the use of a magnefying glass, wich i do now. It's interesting seeing one's past work from 20 years ago. I wonder if i should repaint my very first ones or keep'em as is? This is a trip!
  6. Here is an early Citadel mini "Necromancer" from their "Fantasy Adventurers" range. I enjoyed painting him, it's always nice to visit the dark side! This guy has a wonderfully malevolent expression on his face & I love the way his staff is carved into the shape of a "diving" skeleton. Thanks for looking!
  7. This is my first Reaper Mini that I have painted to post on the forums. I have recently found the forums here, and am very interested in doing the paint exchanges, but I did want to throw something up so the organizers and other members knew that I can throw some paint on a mini and not have it look like total jank. I am interested to hear what everyone thinks. This was also my first Bones mini that I have done, and did as suggested and not primed it. First coat was a bit tricky but after that everything went pretty typical.
  8. Olsvalter the Aged by Tre Manor -Norse Human I am attempting to do more work with pigment rather than glazing with inks for shading. After reading the discussion about it, I thought it would be a good idea to push myself. The base is custom with spackle, The design is done by me, although you can't see it right now. This photo is not white balanced: It looked really odd when I tried to do it... The display of the colors is accuate though. The light bits are a light shade of GW: Shadow Grey.
  9. And here is the second miniature SGHawkins09 painted for me for the Summer 2015 exchange. It is 60034 Seoni, Original Version. Also painted in a winter theme to match her earth elemental summoned creature. This figure was in response to my comments about having very few female miniatures painted up, PC or villain. Also, I have a little one who is starting to watch more and more children's movies. So, you may recognize this version of Seoni from a certain cold-themed animated movie! I love these colors, the basing, and above all, the face and eyes are out of this world! I know you'll enjoy her too.
  10. My partner for the summer exchange was Flamehawke. She said she plays mostly mages so I choose Nonalla for her. She is holding a book, and I like books The background diorama is scratch build from plastic card with some chests from my bits-box. I made the base for the mini detachable, so that it can be used in a game. The base is magnetic. Flamehawke gave me some hints so I kept the colors light for the mini. Added a circle of Nordic runes and a dragon familiar. The runes spell Flamehawke (but maybe I forgot the last 'e' )
  11. I've been a fan of this mini since the first time I saw it but still it took me some time to buy it, and almost even more time to gather up the courage to paint it. It didn't quite end up the way I wanted it to (I don't have that good brush control) but still it turned out kind of nice.
  12. Finally got a good chunk of my Dark Hold goblins painted up, from their last KS project. I believe the wizard and barbarian are my favorites, followed by the lady goblin with the knife. Didn't realize those were boobs until I started painting them! The orange-hooded goblin is pretty hideous, I must admit, but I accidentally discovered UT Volunteer orange and had to leave him. Thanks for looking!
  13. Next up, my first non-monstrous Bones attempt: Jason Wiebe's Khael Stonekindle. He was part of my fantabulous Secret Sophie haul from LittleBluberry. Thanks, LB! I was so-so level of happy with him, in the end. I attached him to a resin base I got from a local dude who puts out bases and the like under the name "Models and Minis." It wasn't completely perfect, but I thought it made a cool and very fitting base for him. Imagine it'd've been a lot easier, actually, with a mini without a robe hanging down, huh. Thanks for looking!
  14. Forgive the poor quality of this; I'm both getting back to painting after a bit away and am taking pictures with my cell, so they aren't going to be super-pretty. Not sure how I would make them look less terrible with what I have available, but I would happily accept pointers! Anyway, this is my attempt at Nonalla. I really like this sculpt, but I like less what I did with it. Very monotone. I may strip and repaint her and try making her more colorful.
  15. Josephine Lucero was a miniature I purchased back around 2000 or so as a character for a D&D game. When I started painting miniatures as a hobby, she was one of the first I painted because I still had her sitting around. So she is probably my 2nd or 3rd miniature painted (I do not count high school painting attempts). This was about three years ago (Reaper got me hooked with a Paint and Take at PAX East 2012). I remember the dress in particular was Pro Paint Glacier Blue, since I had a pot of it from 2003 or so that was still more-or-less okay. Fast forward to ReaperCon 2015. I was digging around the metal trade table when I spotted Josephine. I decided I would paint her up again in more-or-less the same colors, and got started right away (modulus lots of hanging out and chatting). I used some tips from Corporea's Flesh and Faces class, as well as some new Scale 75 paints I picked up. Overall, I probably spent less time on Josephine 2.0 than I did back in 2012 (though I don't really remember how long I spent back then). Derek and some others gave me a few suggestions near the end of the con, but I decided that she would a 100% "Painted at ReaperCon" miniature, and didn't put those final touches on her, even though they would have been fairly easy to do. P.S. And I just noticed... I forgot eyebrows. Grrr. I even noticed that she needed them multiple times. At least they're sculpted on so she doesn't look too weird without them.
  16. One weekend each year, about twelve friends and I hold our own private gaming convention, by renting a vacation-house out of town and spending the days gaming (board, card, role-playing). For this year's convention in February, I offered to run a little "painting workshop", since one of the guys was about to receive his box of Reaper's Bones 2 Kickstarter figures and he wanted some advice and practice. Another one of the guys brought some old lead figures by Grenadier, so I chose a wizard and spent a couple of hours painting him. The sculpt is crude by today's standards -- what is that cloak doing, anyway? -- but I like the character. He was the "Warlock" in a ten-figure "Wizards" boxed set (#2001). Check out the images at this website: http://dndlead.com/Grenadier/2000s.htm I started with a black basecoat and worked up. I gave him fiery eyes because I thought they would look more imposing (and easier to paint) than normal eyes. I also painted a magical glow on his raised right hand and glowing eyes in the skull on his staff. Here is the result! Enjoy, Derek
  17. This was one of my two entries I was keeping hidden until after reapercon (and, oddly enough, the one that didn't get picked for judging, but I guess it makes sense.) The big thing I was told is that I lost the mid-tones on the robes which really didn't help. This is the official reapercon photo, but it's far superior to what I can take as is.
  18. Ok so this guy was sitting around on my shelf of shame since before my 6ish year hiatus...so a majority of the painting was already there...the big thing was the skin/hair and base that I had to do...I like to think you can see the difference in the techniques used to reflect the time frames. I plan to get more pictures when My reapercon stuff arrives and I get my lightbox up again.
  19. So, I looked at this sculpt and thought to myself, "My, that's a lot of flat, undetailed space on this sculpt. I should do something fun with it." I need to get something better than my cell phone for these shots. There's metallic gold patterning as well, but it doesn't show up D: Now to work more on my patterned-fabric Yephima...
  20. I am calling this one done. I have repainted enough parts of this one that I am leaving well enough alone. This is my first time painting one of the Impact Miniatures chibi models and I am happy with how it turned out. Thanks to everyone who gave suggestions for colors and improvements in the WIP thread.
  21. Okay, not entirely done with this one, but nearly there and quite pleased. I included my concept art (which included him having a leg band to hold wooden stakes or potions or something since I didn't think he'd want a bandolier since he's clearly showing off the chest). I still need to touch up the mouth, finish the eyes, and put the shoulder and hip pads on the jacket. I may do some sort of filigree or decoration along the hem as well. The basic idea of this figure is it's a mini for my multiclassed kensai (magus archetype)/master of many styles (monk archetype) hence, monk-mage. He's an aasimar who is quite pompous. He delivers touch spells through his punches, so he's very melee focused. That and the overconfidence lead to the "Come at me" pose he's doing. I'll update when I've finished the last few touches.
  22. Getting started a little late this month on my resolutionary challege figures due to illness and a vacation. So because of that I am going to try to do what I think will be be easier minis. First up is the Chibi Wizard from Impact miniatures. I was a little nervous about the paint sticking after hear some of the stories about the resin that Impact uses. I cleaned it with Dawn dish soap and thankfully I didn't run into any issues. I want to break out of my usual blue/grey/white color schemes that I tend to use for wizards so I am going with green robes. Still haven't decided on a good accent/cape color...maybe a yellow or white...meh. Colors used so far: Robe - 09015 - Jade Green Skin - 09091-09093 - Golden Skin triad Eyes - 09039 - Pure White, 61113 - Arthurian Blue, 09288 - LED Blue Any C&C is appreciated, especially accent color suggestions
  23. I took a break from painting my ReaperCon entries to get something done for the "You're Such a Character Contest." The base coats were done earlier but everything else was done today. I wanted to paint something for the contest but did not have time to do the one that I really wanted to. Then I was sorting my Bones II and came accross Aaron and decided to use him to represent Brind'Amour from R.A. Salvatore's The Crimson Shadow. It is a quick, tabletop paint job but I am happy with it as it proved to me that if I put my mind to it, I can do one in a few hours.
  24. This is a miniature I've had for a long time. Painted it when I was young. :) Still love the model. So much personality.
