  1. Hi everyone, after sitting five months on the shelf, that being the projet (not me) I finally found time to complete my Gnolls display base. The base is 7.25 inches x 11 inches wide. Here are some pictures. Other pictures of the Gnolls can be found here.
  2. Continuing with the random minis for now: Cavalry. Bones Cavalry that is. Over the course of 4 delivered kickstarters of Bones models, Reaper has released a total of 9 mounted models. (11 if you count the flying saucer from the Bones 2 Chronoscope Expansion and the chopper bike mounted Sophie (the one and only Bones KS model delivered in metal!) in the first Bones kickstarter.) Well, "mounted" is also a theme to use to get something painted, isn't it? And with 9 or 11 models to go for, it should be possible to get done in a timely manner. Here are the first pair of them that I have painted up. lots of pics beneath the
  3. Every so often, a model catches my attention. Sometimes because it is excellent and inspiring, sometimes because there is something off about it. Sometimes the model is both. Here is one such example: Yeah, it is the angle of the buckler thats just wrong. It simply should not happen. It triggers my OCD. This is the "Gnoll Warrior" from the "Thank You pack" add-on in the second Bones kickstarter. During the kickstarter it was presented as a line concept drawing and as is usually the case, the resulting miniature ends up slightly different. Still a perfectly good representation of the original concept art, but anyhow. That said, I do understand that one-piece castability requires certain angles and alignments for the mould to work, and to get the detail in the shield to show it cannot be sideways in the mould. There have been plenty of examples of minis in strange poses and/or holding things at strange angles because of this. This Gnoll is also stylistically rather different from the other Gnolls Reaper makes in Bones, perhaps it's just not so comic-like? But I ramble. The other day as I yet again was perusing the Drawers of Doom™, I picked this one for the painting table. But first it got to meet Mr. Scalpel for a field amputation followed by a quick rotation and graft: One drop of superglue later the case of the misaligned buckler was solved. Add a base and some paint: Good thing classic Bones material is really easy to slice and reposition. Such an excellent material for convertions as well. Jagged white parallells of sharp fangs emerged into the campfire light, then a staring yellow eye. Inquisitive, roughly probing clawed fingers followed. Snorting, foul breath enveloped me, causing me to gag. It jerked its beast-like head back, loud barks of mocking laughter spraying spittle in my face as I tried to stand my ground. "I smell fright, little man", the gnoll rasped out at last. "Why's that parlay-totem here?" This mini was finished September 12th 2020. 77388 Gnoll Warrior From the second Bones kickstarter 2013 Reaper Miniatures Sculpted by Bobby Jackson classic white Bones PVC 40mm base available from reapermini.com
  4. It has been a while since I painted anything. A combination of my arms acting up again and my just not feeling it. Call it the recurring fallow season. So I am getting back on track with some Orcs. These are partly from the first Bones kickstarter and partly from the third. All together a nice band of 10. There are nine different orcs that are variants made on only two basic bodies, plus a singular warchief that I think fits in with the lot of them. I originally based them on 40mm round bases with sloped edges, the thinner-than-citadel knockoff ones. But there was always something not quite right about them, the bases were simply too large for the minis. So off they came. I ended up with making 37mm 3D-printed ones instead. I think they fit well on these minis. lots of pictures below
  5. What is a faux-prehistoric setting without Cavemen? The stereotypical fur-clad, monosyllabic unwashed barbarian that whacks a woman over the head with a club and then drags her by the hair into a cave? Or at least, sporting the "cave man" look that was popularised in The Flintstones and The Far Side. The reason these types are prehistoric lies in the name. Pre-history, as in "before recorded time". Which really is most of time. We don't really know all that much about prehistoric man other than what can be gleaned through archeology. We do know that there existed several different sub-species of humans concurrently up to about 50.000 years ago. Neanderthals would be one such sub-species, the Hobbits (Homo Florensis) another. Then we (or something) killed off all the others. Some evidence of interspecies breeding is still to be found in our modern DNA. #628-631 These were only shown as silhouettes in the KS. From left to right: Shaman. clubber, spearman, archer. These are technologically advanced cavemen, as shown by their use of the bow. The Shaman. I call him Barney. He succeeded in the Quest for Fire. The clubber, Thag Simmons. He will be known to posterity by the manner of his demise. (Should have stayed clear of the tail end of that Stegosaur.) Fred, the spearman. Used stones of flint to make a sharp spearhead. Archie the bowman. His right hand strategically placed to hide his embarrassing lack of arrows from the others. These were simple and fun to do in regular paints on a black undercoat. I come in search of the answer to the Riddle of Steel! What do you know about it? These minis were finished June 14th 2020. 44086 Black Bear Tribe Cavemen (4) Bones 4 kickstarter, delivered 2019 Reaper Miniatures Sculpted by Bobby Jackson Made in Bones Black PVC available from reapermini.com
  6. Here is another wizard from the Greybeards subset of the Bones 4 Core set. This one does have a metal version (SKU 03953) and was sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I had fun with this figure. I love the character in these wizard figures. This one is strongly reminiscent of Gandalf. Though I resisted the temptation to go grey I did sneak Gandalf's rune onto the medallion on the back of his hat.
  7. I started working on the wizards from the Bone 4 core set. I was originally running through the usual themes - brown, grey, red etc. but this colour scheme on a different figure really caught my eye and I thought it would work on this figure. I didn't realize he was supposed to be an evil wizard until I looked it up on line (sku 03847 by Bobby Jackson btw). But hey evil wizards can like bright colours too, right?
  8. Here is Ava Justina, Female Templar from the Bones 4 core set. She is in fact figure #1 in the set. She was sculpted by Bobby Jackson and is also available in metal SKU 03746. I drew inspiration from GW's Sisters of Battle and went for a clean black armor look. Unfortunately the casting is a little soft in some areas - especially around the legs where the plates and chainmail are not so well defined. I cut her off the cast-in base and put her on one I made with the Temple roller from Green Stuff World. There are fleur-de-lis in the pattern which I thought would be a neat call back to the Battle Sisters.
  9. Here is Zadim, Iconic Slayer from the Pathfinder Iconics stretch goal to the core set. He was sculpted by Bobby Jackson and is also available in metal sku 60179. I kept pretty well to the Wayne Reynolds artwork for the colour scheme.
  10. This meaty barbarian by Bobby Jackson is also available in metal sku 03869. I went with the typical barbarian scheme of leather and furs.
  11. Hi everyone, here are pictures of my Gnoll hunting party. All of them are Reaper Miniatures Gnolls, painted with Reaper Master Series Paints. I added the archer's bowstring and converted two models (see last picture). I will now work on a display base for them.
  12. Blink Berenwicket, Female Gnome by Bobby Jackson is also available in metal sku# 03732. The armor is painted with some ancient GW green metallic. I experimented with blue metallic on the sword but I'm not overly thrilled with the result but it is good enough to call done :)
  13. Hi everyone, here's another Gnoll I painted. 77388, Gnoll Warrior sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
  14. The Left Hand of Darkness here is from the Bones 3 Stoneskull expansion. I painted this one at the same time as the Bones 4 female devil, as they make a fine pair. Speaking of fine pairs, you will need to click the links to see, as the titilation offered by a shapely two inch piece of plastic might be harmful to minors. Full Frontal More Full Frontal Even More Full Frontal The Left The Other Left A slight Angela from Spawn vibe going here. Not sure what about this mini that makes me think of that character. 77496 Eilluvasheth, Succubus Queen Bones 3 Stoneskull Expansion, 2017 Reaper Miniatures Sculpted by Bobby Jackson Made in Bonesium PVC 32mm base available from reapermini.com
  15. Though technically not part of the town themed figures, I tapped him for the captain of the guard. I did him relatively quickly.
  16. I'm trying to complete all the town related figures from the Bones 4 core set with the same colour palette. I took my inspiration from the Whiterun guards in Skyrim. This pair of guards is also available in metal.
  17. Here is my most recent Townsfolk figure from the Bones 4 core set. He is also available in metal (SKU 03859). Two things I tried differently on this one were 1. no under-painting and 2. letting go. I usually apply an coat of German Camouflage Black-Brown over the whole figure to start when working with Bones. I know it has been shown many times that Bones are designed to go from blister to paint but I wanted to check it out for myself. I just went straight to the base colours, shading and highlighting with no issues. The second was more difficult. This was me telling myself to trust myself and the figure and not overwork the paint. I had to remind myself to pull back when I started thinking, "maybe I should add another blend or work that edge some more..." At first it was a little uncomfortable but after awhile everything sort of fell into place and I am happy with the results.
  18. Here is another Bones 4 Core figure from the Townsfolk subset #51. She doesn't have an official title even in the metal Townsfolk I blister that that version can be found in. With this round I continued to play with textures and tried emphasizing detail with black line. This is something I have not really embraced due "realism" but I am happy with the results.
  19. Here is #52 from the Bones 4 Core Townsfolk subset. He is also available in metal in the Townsfolk VII: Clergy blister. He has a classic Friar Tuck look about him so I refer to him as the monk.
  20. This figure is available in metal sold as a single figure - Townsfolk: Sage. While I used the same base colours as my other townsfolk, I wanted to give the impression of somewhat fancier clothes. After shading and highlighting, I brightened the cloak and frock with GW inks (Biel-Tan Greeen and Carroburg Crimson respectively).
  21. Here is the Bones 4 version of the metal figure that sold as a single figure (referenced in tags). It was a challenge to work in the 5 main colours.
  22. Here is the Bones 4 version of the metal figure that is sold as a single figure (referenced in tags). For my townsfolk set, I challenged myself by using the same base palette of 5 colours - ochre brown, German Field Grey, Burnt Red, German Med Brown, and German Cam Beige for each figure. Each figure will have elements of these colours.
  23. This is the Bones 4 version of the metal one that is found in a 3-pack of townsfolk figures. I took the opportunity to do some experimentation with rendering texture.
  24. Here is the Bones 4 version of the metal figure that is found in another townsfolk blister (referenced in tags). I continued to play with texture and also challenged my self to push the contrast.
  25. #144: AKA Shardra, Iconic Shaman, sculpted by Bobby Jackson. This one has some glaringly obvious print lines (or whatever those are) up the right side of her cape. I mean: And I even tried to hide them by using a dark colour on the cape and avoiding to highlight the area as much as I could. Still. Strike one for quality control there. Size does matter. Well. Scale does matter. At any rate, I will be doing something else than painting characters for a while as it has been a bit of an uninspired slog as of late. Pathfinder Iconics Bones 4 Core set, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Sculpted by Bobby Jackson Made in Bonesium PVC 30mm bases should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones, are currently available in Metal.
