    Bugbear group picture (18 pictures)

    Hi everyone, here is a group picture of my Bugbear raiding party. I painted most of them last year and mounted them on 40mm diameter base last week. These are all Reaper Miniatures models; 77233 Kegg the Bugbear Hunter, 02603, Skrug the Bugbear Shaman, 77015 Bugbear Warrior, 77232 Mogg the Bugbear Warrior and 77231 Rugg the Bugbear Leader. They were all sculpted by Tre Manor, except for Skrug the Bugbear Shaman that was Sculpted by Ben Siens. I used Reaper's MSP acrylic paint.

    02603, Skrug the Bugbear Shaman

    Hi everyone, here's 02603, Skrug the Bugbear Shaman. This model was sculpted by Ben Siens. It’s mounted on a 40mm round base and was painted with Reaper's MSP acrylics paint. After a major earthquake shook the mountain range of western Zenitonia, Skrug and his clan had no other choice then move. Their entire lair was destroyed in a dreadful collapse. Dozens of Bugbear died or were trapped under the unstable rubbles, survivors had to leave. Has Hruggek abandoned his fateful worshipers? For, after traveling by night and hiding in a valley of the Vermillion Hills, the horde had to stop by the Lynx River torrents. There, they were decimated by a group of adventurers passing by looking for Belladonna berries. Only two families managed to escape the slaughter crossing the river on a makeshift raft. Belladonna or Wolfsbane berries are very toxic, they are also an essential ingrediant to concoct the cure against lycanthropy. But this is another story.
  7. Hi everyone, Now that the contest is over, here are more pictures of my converted 77038, Hell Hound. The original sculpt is by Ben Siens. This was my entry in Reaper's Facebook Convert and Paint contest. Khan is my elf riding dog in our D&D campaign. The contest was the perfect pretexte to make this conversion. I first removed all the spikes and flames on the hound's back. I then built the armor and saddle using green stuff and a paperclip. The chest is from Reaper's 02638, adventuring accessories. There were amazing entries in the contest and I managed to get an honorable mention. Thanks to Reaper miniatures and Matthew Clark for organizing this contest.

    07016, Wererat "Bertar"

    It isn’t the full moon but it's wererat weekend anyways. Here's Bertar the Rogue dragging his loot back to the lair of the thief’s guild. Here's Bertar the Wererat 07016 sculpted by Ben Siens. Painted up with Reaper's MSP acrylic paint and mounted on a 25mm round base. This mini is part of a three model set from the Dungeon Dwellers line.

    Maledrakh's Kobolds 77010 & 77350

    A whole year and almost no Bones painted. How did that happen? There are still 20 Bones left to paint and the fourth kickstarter is still on track for delivery around next Easter! I have had these kobolds ready to paint since I received the first Bones several years ago. They were part of the Vampire base pledge box, in a subset called "Dungeon Attack" with some giant rats and goblins. I painted the rats ages ago and the goblins are...lets call it awaiting paint. Four sets of three Kobolds, I did each set in a different colour. Funny how I remember Kobolds as doglike small humanoids from my AD&D days, but it seems they are reptilian dragonlike small humanoids now? What happened there? Seeing as they are so small, I based them on bespoke 3D-printed 20mm lipped rounds. And from the Bones II kickstarter, the "matching" Kobold Leaders: ...that are much larger than the others: so I based these on bespoke 3D-printed 25mm lipped rounds to fit the larger minis. The Kobold fighter champion had a soft noodle weapon haft that no amount of hot water would straighten out, so I cut it off and replaced it with a part of a paperclip.

    14292, Reven Orc Standard

    Here is an Orc Standard I recently painted for a D&D campaign. It was part of a 14292, Reven Standard and Musician blister I had bought a long time ago. It was sculpted by Ben Siens for Reaper's Warlord game. I mounted it on a 20mm base and added wooden logs to hold keep it straight on the battlefield. The green skin have taken over the stronghold under the mountain. Soon after their victory, they've put their standard on the steep pathway leading to the fortified entrance door. Their war flag is a simple piece of tanned leather on which crudely painted the eye of Gruumsh. The banner is also sporting various trophies from previous battles.

    77009: Werewolf

    Just a quick and simple paint, nothing fancy. Couldn’t resist picking it up though, because every tabletop needs a werewolf (even if that tabletop has nobody to play with): He’s very shiny. I couldn’t find my brush-on sealer and had to use PVA sealer, which is always glossier than the label says. His fur is supposed to be mottled grey/white and brown/black, but I never know how to paint the not-obviously furry parts, and usually default to bare skin. In this case, Dark Elf Skin. So I guess he’s a drow werewolf. Also, this: Look at at that eye! It’s a halfway decent eye (even if it isn’t quite human)! Calling the whole thing a win on that basis. C&C welcome.

    Armored Goblins

    This is the whole set. Geourgous scuplts! I decided to go for grey skin. Why? Why not?! I also tried to make the armor dingy and unkept. I think it looks quite goblinish indeed. Apologies for lumping them all into a single post, but submitting 4 individual posts wasn’t going to happen. C&C welcome as always, I hope you like them.
  15. Among the classes I took at Reapercon this year was Shaded Basecoats, by James Wappel. For those of you unfamiliar with his painting style, it basically breaks all the "rules" of painting miniatures in all sorts of awesome ways. He uses huge brushes, doesn't rinse them out, blends most of his colors together, slops paint on all super messy in the early stages, it's quite the mind-blowing experience! I had SO MUCH FUN in his class that I decided to give a try at home, using a Bones werewolf that MrBoot needed painted before Friday's game. Here's the brush I used for 90% of the work: Yes, that does actually say Size 8. The other 10% was done using one of my trusty Size 0's for claws, eyes and teeth. And here's the final result! (I had to tweak the color balance of the final pictures to get the reddish skin/fur to show properly) I only spent just a little over an hour on this guy, and yet I'm just as happy with how he turned out as I would have been had I spent 4. Perhaps even happier! And even better, I was so relaxed and just having a lot of fun painting with this huge brush and not even caring about being careful. After looking at the pictures, I can tell his fur could really use one last highlight, but eh, I've got 20 other minis that need painting, so I'm not going to worry about it. List of paints used: Violet Liner (special thanks to @Guindyloo for the suggestion) Redstone shadow (fur, skin) Earth brown (fur) Rich leather (fur) Golden shadow (fur) Chestnut brown (skin) Oiled leather (skin) Aged bone (claws, teeth) Splintered bone (claws, teeth, eyes) Violet red (tongue) Big top red (tongue, eyes) Clear red (eyes) Solid black (eyes) Blackened brown (base) Jungle moss (base, claws) Highland moss (base) Stone grey (base) Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    77252: Beastman Warrior 1

    Finished this guy up as part of my son's Dragon Rampant army I'm buying and painting for him for Christmas this year. Super quick, by my standards - 2 hours, including a bunch of time spent messaging a friend. And yeah, I know things are rough and I missed a bunch of mold lines... I'm trying to paint an army, not a competition piece. Comments and criticism welcome!
  17. well, it seems to have been not quite a year since my last post, and a bit longer since my last post to Show Off. In the meantime, Nissiana and I have purchased a house, which ate most of the Fall, Winter and Spring, and our Summer has been, per usual, filled with rehearsals and performances. Although I am currently imbroiled with a production of "The Three Musketeers," I've managed to unpack some paint kit and brought it to work. My recent lunch breaks have yielded a passel of kobolds and a pile of rats, both of which will likely lurk the basements of Sharn (or the waste drain of an alchemist's lab, in the case of that one rat) soon enough. Anyway, these are all to a very rough "look ma, I finished!" standard, mostly just to knock some rust off my brushes. Hope you enjoy. Penny bases will be blacked eventually.

    March Hangout Mini 02876 Shaman WIP

    So here's my Goblin Shaman, bare as the day he was cast. (And totally not an excuse to try out the new forum upload). No idea what I'm doing with this dood, so let's see where it goes.

    02470 Kobold Raiders

    I bought these some 12 years back, and only just now realized they were mispacked. I have a duplicate, as you can see, but one of those "stabber and board" guys should presumably be the kobold with a spear shown in the store picture. Just noting that they came that way in the pack, and it's not just a random batch I pulled out of The Drawer of Horrors. A kobold is a kobold, and I'll need some... *counts* 5 more packs of these, so I imagine some spear dudes will appear there. I'm especially fond of the big one, who definitely lifts.

    77038: Hell Hound

    Here's the finished mini for this WIP thread. I'm continuing my attempt to paint these things up quickly and work on my speed, so there's some rough blending happening etc. And I just noticed a couple mold lines that I'd forgotten to clean up. And the spines came out far too white... Should have added more colour there. Anyway! Would still appreciate comments, suggestions, etc.

    77004: Cave Troll - Bones Quick Paint

    This is one of my favorite monster pieces. I love the sculpt and he is a blast to paint. I have a couple more that I want to do, though I'm not sure what colors I will use next. This one was pretty basic, a green, dirty troll. I may need him this coming weekend for a session, so I wanted to make sure he was ready. Total time invested is a little over 2 hours, mainly due to letting layers and varnish dry. Enjoy! CAH
  22. In keeping with the desert like theme, I painted these two snakemen as another possible encounter for my players. I loosely based the paint jobs on a brown cobra. Both pieces we painted in conjunction with two other pieces during our Saturday online painting group. The markings on the cobra are my first attempt at freehand on something other than lines on clothing. Obviously I have more work to do, but I'm getting there. The prairie tick was done for someone else. He mentioned that he had a Deadlands game that was heading into a desert region. I really like how the bloodsack on this thing came out. It was several layers, but I was going for an engorged look. To top it off, I sealed the back of if with a brush on satin sealer, to make it pop a little more. Hope you like them. As always, C&C welcome. CAH

    Clearing Shelf of Shame

    Buenos dias, greetings and salutations fellow reaperites. I am starting a wip for various reasons. I am trying to motivate myself to complete a few more lead/bone dollies. I hope to continue updating this as I make progress. Feedback of any kind will be greatly appreciated. Even the harshest critics. But you guys are an awesome bunch. For starters I am half way done on this Warg. Sculpted by Jason Weibe and in the bones material. I am attempting to make the warg appear if he is prowling on a moon lit nite. The shadows are a blue paint I can not recollect off the top of my head. Up next is the hell hound. The sculptor is Ben Siens and the material is bones. I am trying to give him a battle worn appearance. To give him that appearance I have painted on faint scars. Now how to improve them and give them depth is a condrum. The next one I have up to finish is a mind eater. The sculptor is Patrick Keith and another bones miniature. The mind eater is an experiment using various mediums. I am also using him to work on different forms of shading techniques. And here is two different kroids. Sculpted by Gene Van Horn and in pewter. The details are amazing. I am trying to figure out the right zombie color I want for the kroid sniper. And finally an oop rackham figure. I really like the sculpt and had bigger plans that I had to scale way back due to reality. I originally envisoned his skulls to be painted asgalaxys and a cosmic scene in the back ground. My talent is not up to par yet. Thank you for viewing. And yep, need to work on editing and pic taking more.

    89003: Pathfinder Goblin Warriors

    And another batch that got hit at the end with project fatigue. There's some goofiness going on here that I should really have addressed, but... yeah. (I also should have been more careful not to cut off part of the one poor goblin's foot as I was trying to trim off the broccoli. ) This particular batch is intended for use as random grunts, and I'm still continuing my quest to get a bunch of stuff painted in a relative hurry as a way to speed up my overall painting. They were a lot of fun to paint and they're silly and remind me of a more bloodthirsty version of the goblins malefactus has been painting lately. Front: Back: As always - C&C welcome!
