  1. Hello All, Here is a Bones USA 07034 "Grave Wraith" I completed last week. Thank you for looking.
  2. It's the weekend and time for painting! Started strong and ended weak. Let me say that I had the intention of doing a red/black/purple color scheme, but at some point it just got away from me. I LOVE the horse and the leather details on how they came out, but the real loss is my wraith on top. His colors just don't fit together in a cohesive way. I used my new Artis Opus brushes to do the horse and holy cow do they work great. I went from a black/red up to a orange highlight. The muscles and details really popped and I'm super happy with it. Big miss was I somehow didn't realize that my black ink had metal flecks in it, so by the time I was done with the Nightmare's mane and tail it was too late. "Gee, that tail has some big shine...wait a minute..." Lesson learned. The wraith was a whole different story. I started by doing a wet blend of purple and red. Didn't work. Then tried nightmare black and purple. Didn't work. It was just a struggle. His sword was supposed to be darker and ominous, but it just kept getting lighter and at a certain point I was ready to just be done. Bad match for a death knight. My real win is the horse. I really liked how he came out and I'm very happy with the result. Here's the stages. I also want to base this guy. I'm thinking forest floor feel...
  3. Tried to keep this in very, very simple colors. I think he came out okay. Sometimes simple is good, right? Battle Report! Wins: * Cape and layers came out well. * Staff shading was good. * metal highlights worked out well. Used an ink wask to fill in the deeper areas and shade and edge highlighted. * brightened the scale mail in the front which I think added a cool effect. Misses: * The staff and bones didn't differentiate enough. I tried doing a dry brush that failed pretty bad. Then went back and just did similar tones. * I wanted to have more color in the body, but didn't see how to do it without pulling away from the grimdark look. Open to suggestions you may have. * Also could have differed the band colors on the staff a bit more. Open to feedback on this one. I also need some good basing ideas.
  4. Trying something a little different this time. I've got a friend who loves JRR Tolkein and I thought he'd really appreciate a little diorama. Since I have to ship this, I need it small and durable. Now, I get it that Bilbo's sword Sting glows bright when Goblins are near, but let's just say for this story it's glowing because danger is close. I have him in the stone henge area with a Wraith King coming around the bend. Let's just say this is about to get real... Starting this on some foam board. I was going to use some chip board, but didn't want the glue and stuff I'd be using for the base to get soaked in and bend. Using the extruded foam core for the stones. Carving them down was pretty fun. I'm thinking I might add some runes or something into them. I haven't primed them yet, so I still have time. The ground terrain is kind of fun - I used spackle, glue, sand, and some burnt umber paint. I'll do some grass and floral additions to it. You can see on one of the pillars that I used a different mix to surround the stone. That was the filler without the paint added. For the circles, I'll be leaving those open to put the minis into and can be taken out on their own. I'll be basing them to match the surrounding area, but Iike the idea of taking them out of the diorama when wanted. Open for any and all suggestions here. We're still far from done.
  5. Reaper mummy I wanted to theme as an ice mummy. Wizkids beholder zombie. Reaper wraith from Bones 4 that shall be known as “The Red Wraith” in my dnd game as a recurring villain.
  6. Hi i just want to introduce you Marise Greyshroud Wraith Queen.
  7. I ordered the new wraiths that were just released that were part of the Bones 4 KS. I thought they were going to be opaque (that's how they were first posted), and was bummed when they arrived as translucent. Mostly because I have never painted a translucent before. So I ordered up a couple other green guys to try out some technique. After botching up the Spirit figure with AP green quickshade, I moved on to this Grave Wraith. I used Muddy Brown on the ground, Mountain Stone on the gravestone and Bronze Dragon on the sword. I liberally used AP strong quickshade as a base on the wraith, and then highlighted with the Green Clear Bright. I think it looks pretty good. Any suggestions or comments welcome. I really want a creepy Nazgul look on my B4 wraiths, and this turned out better than I thought it might.
  8. I saw Stawhat's post a while back, that he did them in different colors... I thought that was cool and since I normally prime my bones, thought that I might try the liners I have as base coat and see how they work out. I do not have the grey, but I did try the green, blue, brown, sepia and red liners. As many have noted the brown and blue worked well, but I found the red worked out just as well. The green and sepia flake too easily. Also tried some OSL - as I am still working on getting my skills there.
  9. This is my first attempt at object source lighting. I'm still pretty new to this hobby, so any advice is appreciated!
  10. Hey, long time no post. I've been painting up some spooky minis for a Curse of Strahd campaign. Painted these two and finished last night. I started with an airbrush, but ended with a whole lot of brushwork and glazing.
  11. Well, I managed to fight my way back into hobbying...at least a little bit. The wraiths were some of the minis I was anxious to get at, so I wasted no time. I thought about doing the expected (black and grey), but that left me uninspired. So I thought about ROY-G-BV-ing them. But I didn't have any OYs that I thought would be appropriate. So I just muddled my way through. My apologies to Bob Ridolfi, your sculpts are wonderful and deserve better than what I can throw on them. The new wood paints were brought out to work the haft. Muddy Soil served as the base for Bloodstain Red and Clotted Red Nightmare Black followed by Carbon Grey and Glacier Mist. This was a little too close to the Blue Greys triad, I was hoping for something further off. The robes were started with Coal Black, and then hit with Peacock Green. Brilliant Green finished them. The tabard was started with Pure Black, followed with Stormy Grey, and then finished with Cloudy Grey. The robes were started with Pure Black, then followed up with Dark Elf Shadow and Dark Elf Skin. This is one of my favorite combinations. I love the Blue Greys triad. Midnight Blue, Twilight Blue, and then a 50/50 mix of Twilight Blue and Snow Shadow. I think this is my favorite. I wanted a monument reminiscent of marble, so I started with Leather White, Pure White, and finished with Sparkling Snow. The robes were done with Regal Purple, Monarch Purple, and Royal Purple. The difference is a little more obvious in person, but I was having troubles with the camera.
  12. I wish my phone camera could get better photos of this mini, but the contrast is so wide that it just doesn't want to cooperate. I wanted to practice some OSL, and I chose violet. I also wanted to try building a different kind of base, and the wraith seemed like it would look at home in a bog. I think the back turned out better than the front. I may go back and deepen some of the front shadows at some point. Tips on OSL and other things are welcome!
  13. Painted this ghostly ghoul for my players to fight this weekend. The purple highlights on the cloak didn't come out vibrant as I had hoped, but I think it still looks pretty good. I was really happy with the rusted armor, although it didn't get captured in the pics very well. The sword is supposed to look like it was glowing blue, but I got lazy near the end and sort of skipped it. I'm planning on going back some day to add that effect, but for now I'll consider it done. I would appreciate any critiques and advice. Thanks in advance!
  14. Simple speed paint. All done except for the base. Edit: I've added my 2nd Cairn Wraith. I really liked Michael Proctor's example paint so I copied the color scheme for it.
  15. So I think this is the best mini I’ve ever painted. I got him him for free with my last order and I loooove him. I love the sculpt and he’s so fun. Anyways, very proud of myself with this one...
  16. Still have a few touch ups to do (yes I based before I was done...I like to live on the edge)
  17. Mold lines, it seems, are my weakness. Fortunately, this model, which I absolutely love, had lots of wrinkly bits that I could use to try and hide them. :-)
  18. For my Children of the Night Project I'm building a Gothic style Undead army with some Demon allies. Here is the Necropolis Command Group I will use as a Command for a regiment later. WIP https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79298-children-of-the-night-by-glitterwolf/
  19. Howdy, For my fifteenth day of International Mini Painting Month I present the Female Wraith from the Bones 3 Graveyard Expansion... Halfway, Kev!
  20. Here is the Grenadier Monsters box set wraith. The glowing green inside his hood and sleeves doesn't show up as brightly in the photos as it is IRL.
  21. My Bones III Kickstarter fulfillment arrived a couple of days ago, and I've been happily sorting through them. I've engaged in all three Reaper kickstarters so far, but I doubt that I'll do another — it's not that they're not a good deal, but there's always a very, very long wait for them to arrive, and they've all been very heavy on the character figures, of which I really do have an ample supply. I mainly want the monsters, and it'll be simpler just to buy them individually when they eventually appear in the shop. I chose this one to start the painting with, mainly because it would be very quick and easy to do, and in fact it only took about twenty minutes. It probably would have taken longer if I'd actually removed any of the mould lines, which I kind of forgot about in my enthusiasm. I don't know what its SKU is; I couldn't find it with a (fairly brief) search in the online store.
  22. I normally wouldn't buy from Privateer Press as the minis are just too pricey, but i found these second hand at Half Price Books for under $8. Anyway, they make a fine troop of Wraiths for my Undead Kings of War army, and painted up really quickly. Tried out some fog effect too (shredded cotton ball). Took pictures with a two different light setups as I'm trying to figure out my wife's camera phone (mine is junk), I liked 'em both so you get to see 'em both.
