  1. Ladless and Gentlemints, I've been kicking this idea around for a while now. And with the current isolation I think it's a great time. I propose a craft paint challenge. I have tons of great miniature paints from various brands, but for the sake of fun lets see what we can do with craft paints. This is my proposal. Grab a random miniature, Bones or otherwise, and ideally whatever craft paints you have on hand (no going to the store for craft paints, this is to promote social distancing) and see what you can do. This will serve two purposes. It will be a fun way to throw some paint on a miniature, and hopefully we can also show a lot of people that while specialized paints are amazing, you can also get decent results on a budget. If you aren't into miniature painting, and still want to throw some craft paints on canvas or paper or whatever then that would be great as well. I encourage everyone who feels it to jump in on this. Also what do you think about #craftpaintchallenge for tagging. Please post results on here and other social media. Lets see how much love we can get, and how far this will go. Official/unofficial start date of 4/11. And lets go. Cheers.
  2. My goal here was to push myself to go as fast as possible. Start to finish it took approx. 2.5 hours, which is definitely a record for me. Contrary to my usual practice, I painted the integral base; when I do get around to doing a proper base, I will likely integrate it into the display. C&C welcome.
  3. For Science! So while speaking to Pezler the Secret Enabler last week on the hangouts, I mentioned a tool that Micro Mark sells for scraping Seams on models that I had seen, and I decided it looked like just the thing for removing mold lines on Bones minis. As you can see from the last pic, the 'blade' is fairly long and reversible. The idea is to lay the flat part of the triangular blade on the seam and pull / push it along to scrape off the seam, or in our case, mold line. So I tested it out on the bottom of a Bones Sea Lion base... I scraped the "C2013" off that was next to Reaper miniatures... So far, so good, it does flats well.... Then I pulled Knarthex down from the shelf of waiting, and tried it on some of the scutes mold lines under the tail... It may still require some sanding with fine grit sanding sticks or sand paper... sorry about the pics, it isn't easy to photograph naked Bones.... And like any other tool, it will need some practice to use it well.... Overall, for the price, I consider it a useful tool for working on softer material minis. still need to try it out on plastics and metal.... George here is a link to the original photobucket site...
  4. Well, I'm finally doing it. I'm going to start painting Ma'al. I think I've gotten enough figured out with Mini Ma'al that I can start. At the very least I'm going to start prepping him for painting...that might take a while. Blue liner and mold line removal are first! Not going to boil him because I can live with the slight bend in the wing(maybe, we'll see how I feel before I liner that wing.) Probably won't post more pictures until after I've linered him.
  5. This is my first show-off thread of a smaller mini—my other ones have been D&D large size. I feel there's a lot of room for improvement, but I'm quite happy with this one, especially the eyes. C&C welcome.

    Patchwork Gang

    Wanted to use all (most) the colors on my wet palette before I cleaned it... and decided to tackle the Patchwork Gang.
  7. More April work on Large minis...
  8. My Werebear was the 4th mini I've painted after a 3 year hiatus; this winter wolf is the 2nd. C&C welcome.
  9. More Large Mini work... this guy could/should have been on Medium base, but he seemed better suited on a Large.
  10. Ratman.... or maybe Wererat.
  11. Putting my pictures up from April painting. Tried to put some more flock/base work before taking pictures... to liven things up a bit on these large size minis.
  12. With the tubes carrying fluid, it gave me a reason to try my new colorshift paint from TurboDork that someone on the boards recommended. Seems to work well. It is only a small area, but maybe you can tell in the pics. (3D Glasses is the color).
  13. This is maybe the 20th mini that I've ever painted, and my 4th mini after a 3 year hiatus. Staring at the close-up pictures is tough, because I see so many things I can improve. Nonetheless, I'm fairly proud of this one!
  14. Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting... I started Kagunk, Ofre Chieftain a year or two ago. The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.
  15. So, here is the victim for my #craftpaintchallenge. I did some minor modifications, a little gap filling, and a minor amount of cleanup. I'm going to get started on the primer and base coats. As per my own guidelines I will be using only craft paints. I will also be using primarily Wappel Green Handle brushes for the majority of the work. Lets do this.
  16. Hi all, my first post was answered by such warm and supportive folks I decided to have a crack at the ol' orc from Reaper mini training set #1. The left eye took me 6 tries (and twice that many curses.) Really enjoying this new hobby, first time I tried was back in 1983 and it was a disaster. Maybe patience does come with age. :) #separatedbutnotseparate
  17. Desert Thing from Reaper Bone's Savage Worlds : Deadlands line. BTW, The updated Deadlands RPG KS is currently live. Background is from Loke Battlemat's Book of Dungeon Battlemats set. Went with the fleshy style and stole the radioactive mouth idea from another painter. Usually, I avoid flesh washes for human figures, but it works for monsters. Unfortunately, the two parts of the mouth don't fit well together, but a Reaper base will hold them.
  18. Some Q&D painting of Reaper Bones. Last coat on the giant ticks was Tamiya Clear Smoke. Background is Loke Battlemat's Dungeon Books. Pinnacle Entertainment Group launched its Updated Deadlands RPG KS.
  19. Since I’m wrapping up Deladrin, here is the next in the queue. Devona, Female Wizard. She’s a curious wizard with plate mail leggings, a chain mail skirt, and a staff that looks more like a spear. Also, is her torso adorned with a breastplate? Or is it part of her dress? And what’s up with the scalloped things on her back? Not sure what I’m going to do with her. I hope you enjoy the process of discovery tagging along with me. The one thing I have decided is to try to give her more of an East Indian skin tone.
  20. It has been a year and a half since I painted. I have lined a few bone minis and this is the first of my practice pieces. I spent 2 hours on the cloak. Not happy with it, but I want to move on to the other parts. Brown liner to "prime" the bones figure. Then 9418 thru 9420 triad for the cloak. Oceanic Blue Tropical Blue Glacier Blue
  21. I don't do WIP's very often and I'm well into a couple of these guys. But I added a couple more as I started to base the first few so I figured I might as well. Maybe it will help me keep my focus. We have the 3 bones ogres from a kickstarter or two ago, the bones black preview ogre, metal Kagunk 2, and the bones 4 ettin. I may decide to add metal ogre chieftain (aka kagunk 1) as well as he is half finied on the shelf anyway, and metal Norr'Okk, if I can ever figure out what to do about his head. Also considering ordering the newer ogre chieftain, but we will see.
  22. Hello all, I'm stuck at home the next couple of months like the rest of the world and thought I'd finally try again after my only failed attempt at painting minis thirty-five years ago. I got one of the Reaper Core Essentials kits and did my first one today. Honestly I just can't believe it came out at all. When I was a kid I didn't have anyone to give me advice like the awesome Reaper booklet did (washes, base coating, etc.) and I seriously have to say thanks for putting out such a well designed tutorial. I just bought the Layer kit and I look forward to learning from all the expert artists here.
