  1. The bimonthly resolutionary challenge in the Reaper forums is to get about 4-5 minis painted each month, and also there are some bonus challenges. This February, like last year, one of the bonus challenges is to paint a minature with your fingers. No brushes allowed. And no fingers of other, smaller people either. And it needs to be a creature, not scenery. Challenge accepted. Again. Last year I fingerpainted this: 77368 Shadow Demon This year, I am doing this: The Bones 2 “77372 Burrowing Horror”. Basically a teeny tiny Tarrasque. Technically I probably should have done the primer with my fingers as well, but seeing as it was undercoated by spraycan many moons ago, there have not been any brushes on it. So there. In preparation for this, I have let my fingernails grow a couple of weeks…since my fingertips are way to big to get at any details at all…but a fingernail, both edge and torn, does the trick! These are the colours I used for this. I picked them as I went along, only having a vague idea of how this was going to end up. The miniature was baseless, so I made a base for it: Bespoke 3D printed 80 x 55 mm oval lipped base. Starting by dipping my finger in a pool of Scalecolor Heavy Metal (=midtone silver) I wiped the finger a bit and “drybrushed” the whole model with a movement from front to back on the model. A few goes at this covered nicely: This was followed by a highlight of Army Painter Shining Silver on the ridges and main plated of the head and tail, taking care to not cover up all the Heavy Metal. After that, some Vallejo Game Color Glorious Gold on the claws I mixed some heavy metal with the gold to create a highlight color, which I dabbed on the tips of the claws. I also tried to do the teeth in gold with the edge of a fingernail, but this did not turn out too well. Tearing a fingernail, I used the point to paint the teeth individually, and also did the eyes in Vallejo Game Color Magic Blue, highlighted with a small dot of ancient Hobby Game Products Blue 005. The nail broke off, and I had to tear me a new one. This I then used to clean up some areas with black lining and fixing bits I had missed or slopped the wrong color on. I finished with some blobs of Vallejo Green Ink on the sides and underneath. Then I had to fix all the spots of green that had gotten where they should not be. And then I had to fix all the metal that had rubbed off here and there with my handling of the mini. The base: A thick layer of Army Painter Walking Dead Dirt Spatter, followed by Reaper Pure Black on the rim. After this was dry, I marked where the feet would be by dabbing some lighter brown on the soles of the feet and holding it to the base. This was followed by a globbing on of thinned down PVA woodworking glue to the base surface with my finger again. A couple of tufts were added straight into the wet glue and then I dipped the whole shebang in my box of flockmix. Gently clearing flock from where the feet were to go, I put some superglue in the general areas and placed the miniature on the base, and it was done: Painted by hand. In the most literal sense. All in all, a fun couple of hours of getting messy fingers. Mostly waiting for the paint to dry whilst frantically wiping at my tacky paws to get the paint off. And at last I got to cut my fingernails down to their proper place again! Cardboard boxes being the sworn enemy of fingernails, they caused a couple of casualties at work today.

    Burrorwing Horror modified

    Greetings fellow painters! I just finished my first Reaper figurine, and thought he'd look cool with a few mods! I made his horns out of white plastic rod, and his tail spikes from clear plastic rod! I turned the rod pieces in my Dremel and sanded them down to dull points with a sanding stick. Then I carefully heated them over my heat gun to achieve the curves in the horns and spikes. I think he turned out pretty cool!

  4. Howdy, Here I was going for a Japanese beetle sort of color... Thanks for looking, Kev!
  5. So on facebook in December, a few of us took to doing a daily art challenge for the entire month inspired by Morihalda and her awesomely inspiring dedication to pursuing her art <3 I think Bathory started it and CashWiley started calling it the Morihalda Challenge (if I'm remembering correctly) and my dedication to it was to paint every day for at least 10 minutes. I was able to keep it going for the entire month and once we got into the new year, I decided to keep it going. I don't typically believe in making New Years resolutions, but dedicating myself to painting and/or mini related hobbying for at least 10 minutes every day seemed not only doable but like something that I really wanted to do. I'm passionate about painting and improving my painting and you can't improve without practice and discipline. I have thus painted every day since December 1st and I hope to keep painting every day for as long as possible. The Resolutionary Painting Challenge http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72577-resolutionary-painting-challenge-2017-chatterquestions/was something that I often saw people posting in and about on the forum, but I never thought that I could join in because I wasn't painting as much before and I paint pretty slowly. However, for this year, NomadZeke made the challenges bi-monthly, which I think reduces some pressure on meeting the quota and now that I'm painting more, even though I still paint slowly, I'm more likely to be able to finish a lot more and it gives me something extra to work toward. On top of that, I've always seen the bonus challenges from the RPChallenge and thought that they sounded like a lot of fun and as much as I'm dedicated to practice and discipline, I never ever want to forget that I paint because it's fun. Sometimes I put too much pressure on myself to paint something well and I get all stressed out about it and I just need to let it go and have fun. So finger painting a mini? Yes, please. I knew exactly which figure I wanted to paint for it because I thought that all of the deep recesses would help me to get good contrast. I discovered very quickly that although that was true, it also made it very tricky to get paint into the deep recesses in the first place! So as I always do with Bones figures, I started out with Brown Liner. I had to thin it enough to get it to flow into all of the deep recesses. I should have thinned it more though because what I ended up with was WAY too much paint on the figure - so much that it took a couple of hours for it to dry completely. Once it dried, however, I made sure that I did a better job of controlling my paint consistency so that it would run where I wanted it to, but not all over the place. I did some unintentional wetblending, which turned into intentional wetblending. So much drying time! I think he turned out pretty great, what do y'all think?

    77372 Burrowing Horror

    My tabletop version of the Bones Burrowing Horror done to table top. http://www.coolminiornot.com/400782 C&C appreciated.
  7. Hi all, I decided to progress a bit with my pile of Bones II. As per my habit, I went with a theme -Death from Under- and painted up a couple of burrowing minis. The Burrowing Horror and the Ankheg... I shamelessly "inspired" the colour scheme of the Burrowing horror from another pretty one I saw painted on this forum. (Unfortunately I Forgot who... But he/she did a much better job than me) For the Ankheg, I didn't really know which colour to go for, so I went with all the colours on my paint tray at the time... (Thankfully I had lots of browns on it...) But who knew Ankhegs could wear fuschia??? The backs

    92852 Burrowing Horror

    Started this fella last night, finished him up today. A fun, simple mini. Perfect for getting back in the swing of things.
  9. Next up on the painting table from Reaper's Kickstarter II is this critter, which they call 77372: Burrowing Horror and I will go out on a limb to call a Bulette.

    92852: Burrowing Horror

    Hi all, I have been keeping a low profile around the forums these days but I have been painting. I have a few new pieces to share and I thought it appropriate start with one of the few minis I pledged for in KSII, the burrowing horror. This guy was a lot bigger than I had expected but painted up very quickly.

    92852 - Burrowing Horror (Bones II)

    This is actually my second paint job for the Bones 2 line but the other two are still WIP until I can finish bases and all that. So I give you my first fully completed Bones II, the Burrowing Horror! I used quite a few paints in this and I don't remember them all but basically: Tanned Leather (Base) Black wash Dirty Bone Yellowed Bone Bathalian Chitin Oiled Leather (Brown highlights around the bone plates) Sun yellow (additional highlights and eyes) Blazing Orange (eyes) Maggot white (teeth) A different leather on the belly, I can't remember the name!) Devlan Mud wash for the final wash I may still attach some sand or grass between the bone plates but I'm not sure yet.
