  1. I already posted some pictures of my Khael miniature some time ago, but I had a second Dwarf pack from the Kickstarter, so I decided to do the second one slightly different. Looking at the original there were two aspects of the miniature I did not like (I love the miniature anyway :P): The oversized sword and the lack of texture on the staff. Ok, so what to do? First I cut of the staff entirely and replaced it with some wire. I then proceeded to use the dragon head from Galladon's staff (77054) and altered it slightly to allow a more organic fit to the new staff. The idea was that the staff was found as one piece and then carved into a dragon's head. The second step was to remove the sword and resculpt the robes. I then attached some shapes that resemble vials to the now empty space, as well as a feather and a mushroom. After this I covered it with greenstuff to achieve a bulged out look for a knapsack with some of the contents still showing. Some straps and string add interest. I am not sure what colour scheme I will go for this time. I like the one I used, but I also saw a beautiful combination of green robe and blue hat with a reddish-brown beard. Let me know what you think about this conversion.
  2. As with Katarina the Invoker, this is really from the set 03375: DHL Classics: Female Wizards. The figure is not quite as shown in 02115 as the figures in 03375 have tiny bases, barely larger than their clothes, which is why I have attached them to fender washers. She is also part of my year end Conga Line of finishing up half-done minis. If I didn't do something like this I would probably fuss over her forever. Sandra Garrity is a wonderful sculptor for women with lots of personality.
  3. And here's the little Partha figure I finished. I've always enjoyed these teeny weeny figures (back when 25mm really meant something), and this is one of Dennis Mize's old Children of the Night figures, probably sculpted around 1979. As I mentioned in the post with the Stonehaven elves, I am really happy I discovered a button that brings the color back into my crappy photographs with the editing software. I've got my other little Partha Wizard I'm working on, as well as another Stonehaven elf.
  4. just a quick wip - still doing basecoating. Working out my colour scheme. I'm going to try to do the wizard's staff more like an icicle, we'll see how that goes lol
  5. My last topic on this forum was a Brandle Birchstaff and I liked him so much that I decided to paint another!
  6. I think this is my best yet. What do you guys think.
  7. I finally painted up this mage, which I've had since the first Bones Kickstarter. Doesn't look like the non-metal version is for sale anymore, and I'm guessing that's because the mold is a little messy (the left side of her face and her pointing hand were pretty mangled and I couldn't entirely fix them). Still, I really like the robes since it gave me a nice place to practice simple clothing trim.
  8. Wizard I painted up for the Pathfinder game I'm in. The robes had a base of rich green, brought up with leaf green, warboss green from GW, and finally warboss mixed with some GW flash gitz yellow. The sleeves are palamino gold with agrax earthshade, and then brought up with the flash gitz yellow. Flesh was the Reaper Fair Skin triad with GW reikland fleshshade. Hair was the blond hair triad. The shirt started with ritterlich blue, going up to ultramarine, and finally a highlight with a bit of LED blue mixed in. Pants were done in rainy grey, hit with the agrax earthshade, and then brought up with linen white. Staff was done in walnut brown and then drybrushed intense brown.
  9. Hey All, I'm finally happy enough with this one to call it finished. This was my first real attempt at blending, and while there is a bit of stepping in some places I think the piece is still better for the attempt. I do wish the surface texture was a bit smoother in some places. Perhaps I need to clean my minis better before starting. All comments and criticism are very welcome.
  10. This was the mini I painted for Siri, 02835: Jolie, Female Scribe. Also added to the vignette was the Imp w/Book from Familiars II (14087), the Crystal from Kal'Valanis, Lich Queen (03187), and a couple of books I had in my bits box. The vignette is on a (Foundations 2 sample) 50mm flagstone base from Forge Prints. I don't have the part numbers for the Reaper parts, since the Boneyard is down right now. In her request, Siri stated that she liked purple, so purple she got: As always, c & c welcome. EDIT: Apparently, I like to take pictures before I finish things. The books have writing in them now.
  11. This is my (very late) fall exchange for fishnjeeps; Juliette from Bones 1. He received it a while ago, so I can post it now. I used Green Stuff and a piece from my bits box to fix her miscast hands (on my copy, her right hand was kind of a shapeless blob as well as the horribly thin left hand). I went for a magic missile/fiery spell effect. I couldn't get a decent picture of it, but I also used a bit of GS to sculpt a lock of hair hanging over her face to hide the mold line/imperfection that was there. I'm not the world's best painter, so I try to go for making any figure I do for exchanges unique somehow. I do try my best with the painting too, of course. Speaking of which, I tried OSL for the very first time ever with her. I'm happy with how it came out, but I think it could also be a lot better. Not too bad for a first try, though. Please let me know what you think.
  12. So, I took a break from NMM practice and decided to do female skin. I had a great deal of problems getting the light and shading right. And it still looks a bit off but I am gonna call it quits now and post it up here. C &C welcome.
  13. I recently completed painting the Elquin, High Elf Adventurer figure from the Bones I Kickstarter. I wanted to use him as my Chronomancer wizard for my Frostgrave games, as I felt his outfit was vaguely reminiscent of a French Napoleonic uniform, and would be fitting for a time-traveling wizard. Some of you may remember I recently posted my Sascha Dubois figure, which I had painted as the Chronomancer's Apprentice http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/65273-sascha-dubois-chronomancers-apprentice-conversion-80004/?hl=%2Bsascha+%2Bdubois because of her vaguely 18th century looking outfit. I modified the figure, to help bring across the Chronomancer look, by adding a small disc punched from thin cardboard to the top of his staff to make it resemble a sundial. IMG_5674 by cnjpalmer I painted him for tabletop use, so took some shortcuts. I'm pleased with the results, though I wish I had taken the time to get his eyes focused where his hand is pointing, and not glancing off to the side. I was just so thrilled to get them relatively level and even, and both looking in he same direction, that I didn't want to mess with them further. Here's the finished result: IMG_5887 by cnjpalmer And here is the Chronomancer and his Apprentice: IMG_5900 by cnjpalmer
  14. This is an old Ral Partha female mage. I think she may have been the low level version from one of their old 3 stage character sets,but I'm not certain. If so, she's the only one I have. Painted for table top. Please let me know what you think.

    77054 Galladon

    Here is Galladon that I finally finished up. His WIP is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64680-77054-galladon-bones/?hl=galladon He was missing a hand when I received him so a little searching through a friend's bits box provided a replacement. He is supposed to look like the runes are magically appearing on the scroll as he chants. Not sure I pulled it off but I like it anyway. This was my first attempt at OSL. I placed him on a larger base and used greenstuff to make a stone floor. It was a little empty looking so I made some more scrolls and sheets of paper. My husband has claimed him. If he ever wants a familiar, there is still enough room to add one to the base. This figure would have benefited from a light box perhaps as it is hard to see his face under that hat. He does have a face, with eyes...that I painted while I said really bad words! C&C welcome! Thanks for looking!
  16. This is Galladon the wizard. When he was shipped to me, he was missing the left hand with staff so I dug through a friend's bits box and found a left hand. Galladon gets to be a guinea pig. For the foreseeable future, all minis are going to be guinea pigs as I try out different techniques and skills on them. This lucky guy gets 2 brush blending, spell effect with lighting effect, and "magic writing". Oh, I am also planning a galaxy effect on his robe and hat. (Afterall, Reaper replaced him since he was handless so I have a second one as well!) The two brush blending isn't showing super well yet in the pictures. Probably most noticeable at the moment on his beard. I have only been working on the shadowing of the rest of him and have not started adding the brighter highlight colors yet. His eyes were a .... well, a bad word to try and get right. Tiny little squinty crazy eyes underneath a hat. Grrr! So, here he is. I didn't take any pictures up to this point as I started him at "paint day" which wasn't at my house so he had to wait til we got home.
  17. Just got around to finishing a bones 1 mini that had been incomplete for a year or so. I was trying to add magical nonsense to his coat.
  18. Here is my exchange piece I sent off to Inarah since she wanted a surprise I did not want to post a show off until she received her. Luckily today she made it safely and in one piece. Inarah wanted a miniature she could use as a NPC or adventurer for gaming and I have been wanting to paint up a female wizard so I picked out Hannah sculpted by Werner Klocke. I didn't care for the wand so I switched her up a bit (with inspiration from Jennifer Haley's version). As I have been working on skin tones lately I mostly painted her skin with the olive skin triad with some help from the Dark skin triad and some purples for the deepest shadows. I tried something new with her skin as well and after sealing up added some satin brush on sealer to give her skin a luminescence feel. I am not sure if it shows in the photos though. I really loved painting her even though I had a few mishaps (mainly me being clumsy) and had to rework a few areas. Once I had her painted I knew she needed a kitty familiar since Inarah has a few cats of her own and of course her avatar. So I picked out a kitty from Dark Sword's Cat Pack and painted her up to be Hannah's familiar. I wanted to keep her base fairly simple so she could be used for gaming and moved comfortably. Without further ado here are the photos I took before packing her up. C&C welcome of course. And the closeup to really highlight my mistakes Inarah I'm so happy you like her and am glad she made it safely. Hopefully she will get to be a character to hit the game table someday.
  19. Another one of my minis from some time ago. I painted this for my girlfriend. It is suitably displayed in a glass cabinet in the room. I had to fill in large gaps with green stuff. But it has a lot of character.
  20. Hello again! Another mini for you all today. I actually painted this guy up a week ago, but never got around to taking some photos, and have since moved on to another project. This guy was somewhat of a rush job, as my girlfriend's wizard had an unfortunate run in with the business end of an ogre's falchion, and lets just say his head and body had a "parting of ways". So she decided to roll up an good old fashioned elven ranger for the next week. So we had to pick out a new mini, order him, prep, base and paint him up in a week. Not the paint scheme I'd have gone with for this mini personally, it feels a little cliche, but hey, not my character. I'm calling this guy table quality and done for now, I'm really not happy with the highlight work on the sword, and the cape ended up a bit more vivid than I'd envisaged (lesson learned, mix in some white next time!). As always tips and comments welcome (especially any advice on fixing that sword...)
  21. My first miniboss for my wrath of the righteous campaign. Please keep making these Pathfinder minis Reaper!
  22. This week I completed Feiya, Iconic Witch from the Bones I Kickstarter Iconics and Officially Licensed Pathfinder Miniatures set. I did this figure because my playtest of the Frostgrave rules last week made we want a properly winter based figure to act as Apprentice to my Illusionist wizard. I had pressed Cassie the Gnome Wizard in to duty as the Apprentice, but was not happy with her green grass base. Meanwhile, I felt Feiya looked suitable wrapped up for cold weather adventuring. So many of the remaining wizard figures I have yet to paint just don't look dressed for a winter trek. I'm really pleased with how she came out. The Frostgrave rules say that Illusionists dress in bright, multi-colored outfits, and I wanted to bring that across in this Apprentice. My thinking was that she is young and still enjoys playing with colors and different appearances. The figure I'm using as my older Wizard, (see: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/01/anirion-wood-elf-wizard-figure-132-of.html ) is more jaded and knows the wisdom of sometimes using camouflage and blending in. For the full write-up on my painting of Feiya, please see my Bones blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/09/feiya-iconic-witch-figure-169-of-265.html
  23. This is my first time posting on the forums, but I've been lurking and admiring the talent and the friendly C&C. I've been painting for a bit, but I'm nowhere near the skill I'd like to be yet, and any advice is welcome. I paint minis for my fellow party members in my Pathfinder games, and this is my most recent. I'm sorry for the low-quality photos, but all I've got right now is my iPhone. This character's player described him as having black hair, green eyes, tan skin, and brown everything else. I like this mini so much, though, that I didn't want to have it look like poop, so I took a lot of time to try to make sure that each brown thing was distinct and interesting. I think I did alright. Without further ado, here is Jimli, newly-dwarven sorcerer.
