    Don't forget your art book

    Per Izzy, If you picked up either of the Art Books in the Bones III and IV kick-starters and would like to get them autographed, be sure to bring them with you to ReaperCon. Izzy will be signing them when time allows.

  3. The Series continues with the merriest mini of the lot, the Bones 3 Fire Giant Jailor, joining the Joten Horde of Thrym! Now, after sitting on my desk since pulling him from his plastic bag and dry fitting him together, I've been considering what to do with him. The first thing was the weird shaped integral base ... that needed to be fixed. So I dug around for a base to place his base on and settled for one of the large rounds from the same Bones kickstarter. Now, how best to expand upon the stone work of the integral base or was I going to have to dump it altogether and just use the giant. Well, I decided that I liked it a lot but the strange shape was a pain so I cut back the piece to the straight edges along one side. Then using some architectural samples I have a ton of, I proceeded to make new tiles and intentionally break them. They are 1/8" thick (3.2mm) and 2" x 2" in size. After cutting them into squares, breaking them into bits is easy. The rest was just a matter of doing tile work and gluing them in place. I grouted the piece with some Loctite Craft Glue. It's heavy duty and fills in nicely ... see below. After a little sanding to remove the excess glue and roughing the edges, I used a hobby blade and carving tool to clean and define some of the lines in the integral base to better match the new tiles. I also flipped one of the cut away segments from the front for the edge on the left side of the piece (near the top of the pic). Once that was dried and cleaned, I cleaned and glued the giant together and added him to the base. I have to do a little filling of gaps and I did glue the chain down to the tiles so it lays across the ground as if it is landing there. I just have to improve the pin for the dagger on his back belt and settle the keg on the hook off his belt. Then I can coat and prime him and begin his paint job. I'll stick to my Fire Giant Skin Triad ... As used with the Dungeons & Dragons Fire Giant I did last year. Of course, the Jailor of the Fire Giants won't be nearly as pristine as one of their Elite Guards, so you can expect a lot of grunge and prolly some soot. As always, Enjoy and Stay Tuned.

    I didnt do too much detail on these guys. I was mostly just using up paint that I had mixed for my goblins. Im not entirely a fan of these guys but I figured Id paint them up anyone for a Tundra themed campaign Im working on.
  5. So, I freaked out when I saw the green of Mal'adrakar... what... two years ago? I haven't been paining in several years for a few different reasons. For the last several years things have been up in the air, and I need to be in a certain 'head space' to calm down and put brush to paint for any considerable amount of time. I'm super glad that I've gotten the painting bug back in time to paint this one up. I did a LONG WIP post of Kyra and Lavarath many years ago, and I was hoping to followup with something similar. That one was a long weekend when I had the flu... This one I'm recovering from surgery, so I might be able to get some progress done over the next few weeks? I mean, it's a little bigger, so maybe a little progress? I think that base on Lavarath is a little deceiving... Lets try this: Okay... I'll admit it. I feel out of my depth here. This is one INTIMIDATING 'miniature'. It's bigger than anything I've ever painted... except for my garage, but that didn't have a lot of details. I know how I want to go... old school 'Tiamat' all the way... 5 heads, 5 colors... I really want to do some airbrushing on it, but I'm afraid to screw it up. My first step is priming it, and I'll be using colored primers.... I've got them, so why not, right? I primed the body in red, then test fit the heads and wings. I threw in the 6-sider for scale again because OMG this thing is HUGE. Now, I've been looking at pictures of Tiamat since I was a kid... yes, I watched the damn cartoon, and yes I'm THAT old. While looking for photo references my eye kept going back to this image: I especially liked the fade from black, to red, and out to the various heads. I wanted to recreate that! I decided to start early, and go for that 'fade' from the get go... with more colored primer. So, I wrapped up my primed miniature to minimize splatter and overspray, and went to town Then, I sprayed the heads... one green, one blue, one black... and the last one, I just washed with GM 'Nuln Oil'. And, that's roughly a weekends work. With drying time, multiple pieces and coats, and all the damn yard-work that got in the way, I think that I made some decent progress! I'll update this thread as I make more progress. This is going to be a LONG one, ya'll!
  6. Peter Paul Rubens 1577-1640 Rubens's depiction of males is equally stylized, replete with meaning, and quite the opposite of his female subjects. His male nudes represent highly athletic and large mythical or biblical men. Unlike his female nudes, most of his male nudes are depicted partially nude, with sashes, armour, or shadows shielding them from being completely unclothed. These men are twisting, reaching, bending, and grasping: all of which portrays his male subjects engaged in a great deal of physical, sometimes aggressive, action. I added a twist, lean, and adjusted his neck. WIP

    Behir (77492)

    This past week I painted the Behir figure from the Bones 3 "Stoneskull" Expansion, as I work my way through the remaining figures I haven't painted yet from that set while waiting for the arrival of Bones 4. For the painting article on my blog, see: Behir Article

    Fire Giant 2

    And here is a fire giant I finished recently. I was much happier with him, but the photos reveal some sloppiness! In hand, he's great for the table and I feel satisfied. I'm currently working on a third, so let's see how that goes!

    Maledrakh's Bones 3 Mystic Circle

    The last week or so I have been prepping Bones from the third kickstarter. I have spent enough hours this weekend undercoating with my airbrush to get welts on my trigger finger. There are so many of them! Setting up my airbrush is a bit of a bother and I have to sit out in the garage when working with it, so I need some impetus to get going. And I need to get this done because Winter is Coming! And so we get to this big circle of standing stones. I looked at the bare bones parts before I had prepped much of anything and inspiration hit me. I just brushed on some black gesso one late night and after that it was a doddle to paint and drybrush. The rest was sticking on a bunch of assorted tufts and a load of my scatter mix to finish it. Really simple and quite effective. The circle is about 24cms in diameter when set up like this. The circle breaks up into 4 self-contained pieces. On the tabletop it will be easy enough to space the parts a bit to make a larger terrain area.

  12. I finished the Obsidian Crypt from the Bones 3 kickstarter. I looked at lots of photos of old mausoleums for inspiration. Now, I just need to finish the fence and all of the main cemetery parts will be finished. Then just ghouls, golems, worms, etc to do to complete the entire expansion. I had fun flocking the crypt. I resembled Oscar the Grouch by the time I was finished! I put a couple flickering LED candles inside the crypt to emulate torchlight/candlelight and thought it turned out pretty cool!

    77578 Stormwing, Dragon - Bones 3

    Hello all! I've just finished painting "Stormwing" from my Bones 3 collection - Yay!! My painting process of this mini can be found here in my ongoing Dragon/large monster WIP thread. Please feel free to comment & critique: Thanks for looking !

    Foxy Lad

    So I was really proud of this guy, am planning on submitting this for the inspiration Gallery I think it was new for bones 3, so this may be one of the first painted. Oh there is a metal version - sculpted and painted by DKS. aw man.... I need to fix some stuff. Also when I first based it the leaves were too bright and stole attention. (also a criticism of my Reapercon entry) So I tried adding some dull brown paint to tone it down. I think it worked and may go back and do the same to Treetop Pheonix.

    77451 Invisible Cleric

    I cut back on the ink for the cleric and am happy with the result. I also first drybrushed him with Polished Silver. the results are barely visible under the ink wash and just doesn't seem to add anything to the effect. I don't think I'll bother in the future. The mix I used for the wash/stain this time around was: 5 drops RMS Gloss Sealer 1 2/3 drops RMS Wash Medium 1/3 drop Liquitex Phthalo Blue Because I'm a fan of replicable processes, I approached thinning the ink by first mixing one drop of Phthalo Blue with two drops of Wash Medium. I then drew some of it into a cheap, disposable eye dropper I found in a hobby shop years ago and added one drop to a five:one mix of Gloss Sealer and Wash Medium. I'm sure that I was overthinking this. . . . The resulting seven drops of wash was just enough to coat the figure. I was a bit worried when I started applying it, but fortunately, it all worked out. The viscosity of the mixture seemed just right for what I wanted. The cleric has a more ghostly quality over his nigh-invisible wizard buddy, which works for me. I'll probably stick with some version of this formula for my other transparent figures.

  17. Okay, I did not see anyone else post one of these (and yes I know it's a year late), AND if it is NOT allowed, MODS please delete. BUT, in case anyone cares to see, I have posted my long awaited Bones 3 Core Set unboxing. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/35bkA3Ny6dQ

    Merrow (Aquatic Troll) 77515

    I painted the Merrow from the Bones 3 Stoneskull expansion this past week. As I looked at the figure, I decided I wanted to play up his aquatic nature, and thought it might be fun to paint him like a frog; and then I thought it might also be neat to do him in wild colors like some kind of Poison Dart Frog. Looking at pictures of colorful frogs, I decided in the end to copy the coloration of a Red-eyed Tree Frog.

  21. This past week I finished up the Shipwreck Revenant from Bones 3. I converted it to have figurehead on the front, made from the Bones 3 Succubus Queen figure, instead of the "face" piece that comes with the model. For anyone who would like to read the Conversion thread, see: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/75736-shipwreck-golem-with-sophies-mom-figurehead-conversion/ For anyone who would like to see the Work in Progress painting thread, see: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/75885-painting-my-converted-shipwreck-revenant-photo-heavy/ I'm generally pleased with how it turned out, and I think the figurehead makes a good addition to the model. Unfortunately, this is a very hard model to photograph well, as the long arms tend to block most angles and make any straight-on shot hard to accomplish. Also, the way the top hull juts out and tilts down (the figurehead addition didn't help this), makes the underside of the model hard to see as well; and combined with the way the arms jut out, gives a general top-heavy appearance.
