  1. Your party is travelling through the swamps when you hear a strange croaking noise...it sounds a bit like "wakkawakkawakka...fruit" The giant frogs from the Dreadmere expansion. More pics below
  2. After the Northern Penguin aka Great Auk were hunted to extinction in 1844, the convergently evolved Penguins of the southern hemisphere continue to eke out their existence in the Antarctic. Of course, the reality of the north and south poles being totally separate worlds has never stopped people from making stories and images with, say, polar bears and penguins in them. Or walruses. (Or Pandas). Such as here at the North Pole where Santa lives, we also find Ice Golems using Giant Penguins as guardians on leashes. Sic 'im, Mumble! This is another mini from the Ral Partha Europe kickstarter "Wicked Wonderland" featuring the Evil Santa I painted around Christmas, and some other polar creatures. They are cast in metal, I made a 60x35mm base for them. Sadly, the christmas minis seem to have gone from the RPE webside. Maybe they are only availabe for Christmas? That still only counts as one, since they are connected and on the same base. Hey! I could've sworn you were tap-dancing just now! The three large penguins are from the Reaper Bones 4 kickstarter's Fan Favorites expansion, and released to retail together with the Dire Penguin as the "44104 Penguin Attack Pack". The smaller penguin comes from Reaper "02848 Familiar Pack V" and is made in metal. I painted it as a chick on account of the perfect size. And the Dire Penguin: Because, of course there has to be Dire versions of Penguins too. It craves your fish! This one did not want to be photographed against this background, and turned overexposed and invisible. We'll call it well camouflaged. I had to faff about with global settings in photoshop to make these pictures even viewble. The rest of the photos were unusable. I painted it for the Reaper challenge league's January three colour challenge: choose and use any specific blue, green, pink. together with white and black from Reaper's paint line. Mixing allowed, but only with those specific colours. You can see which ones I used in the picture. I chose to paint it as a kind of wierd Albino Penguin, and only mixed in a small amount of the green for shading. I did not have any other reaper black left, and had to use Nightmare Black which is a very dark blue black. I mean, Dire Penguin? That is some serious Cosmic Horror right there. Where is a Shoggoth when you need one to come and clean up? Featuring minis from: Ice Golem & Giant Penguin Ral Partha Europe "Wicked Wonderland" kickstarter metal - 44401 Penguin Attack Pack Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Bones Black 25mm bases. Penguin from the 02848 Familiar Pack V Sculpted by Sandra Garrity or Michael Brand metal 15mm base. The reaper minis are all available from reapermini.com These minis were finished on Jan 23rd, 2021.
  3. Oh, look a cavern full of valuable crystals. Hm, a tight fit. I am going to take off all my armour so I can crawl in there... From the Bones 4 Darkreach expansion 44049 Stone Lurker Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Bones Black 60mm base I think tentacles are all the more horrid when they are fleshy. This would be a Roper for D&D, in case that was not obvious. A stalagmite-lookalike ambush predator that waits for the unwary to pass by, coiled tentacles at the ready to spring out and drag the victium into its hungry maw. Dungeon delvers beware.
  4. Happy New Year's Eve everyone. To end the year with a little snow, I completed this base today. I had painted the Yeti two years ago, and he was only lacking a thematic basis. This is the Bones version of 77434, Yeti Chieftain sculpted by Jason Wiebe. The artificial snow is BF4103 from Army Painter Battlefields. The icicles were made with pieces of translucent plastic and gloss Mod Podge.
  5. Hello everyone, here are pictures of a cute but deadly little lady goblin. 14178, Skralla the Reven Hero was sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I painted her with Reaper MSP paint. According to the rumours; Skralla grew up near the Shores of the Sea of Stars, far from Monglash. She heard the tales of Razig and his undead crew, and has always wanted to join them. Knowing that Razig would never accept her unless she proved herself a true pirate, she raided Aizen Krahl one night and emerged with one of the dwarves' coveted guns and a trail of bearded corpses behind her. Now that she has the guns, the murder, the pillaging, and the rumming down, she has thrown in her lot with Varaug in hopes of meeting Razig one day and joining him. If only she had stolen ammunition, or knew how to load the wretched thing. Still, it serves her well with a blade tied on, and maybe Razig can teach her shooting.
  6. 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.
  7. At the very end of the Lost Valley, the bossfight: Clubtail! A plant eating 4-ton tank armed with a deadly morning star tail, an armoured hide with spikes, -a fantasy version of an Ankylosaur. The clubtail is larger than the fossil record of Ankylosaur supports. Also the spikes are overstated in comparison. A lot. At any rate, the Ankylosaur was contemporary with the Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Triceratops. All are from what is now North America in the late Cretaceous period, roughly 68 million years ago. It needed that armour. The question remains: What did it use the club-like tail for? To smesh predators? Rivals? Trees? An impressive display to attract mates? All of the above? And the clubtail has spikes. Did I mention the spikes? I detest painting spikes. It takes absolutely ages and I invariably lose patience and botch the job. These look OK for tabletop but do not stand up to close scrutiny at all. At least it is done. Together with the entire Lost Valley Expansion! Woot! The Clubtail is, in fact, the distant forebearer of the modern day Dragon Tortoise aka Koopa. I made it a 125mm x 100mm base. 44076 Clubtail from the Lost Valley Expansion Bones 4 kickstarter, delivered 2019 Reaper Miniatures Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Made in Bones Black PVC 125x100mm bespoke 3D printed base available from reapermini.com
  8. Some time in the late 1990s I did an entire lizardman army for the fantasy wargame Raven by Harlequin miniatures. I am thinking of rebasing and touching up this army as a generic, system agnostic one. That army had some smaller raptors and also raptor riders. The paint scheme here is similar to how I painted those lizardmen back in the day, so these raptors should fit right in with this army. 44081: Raptor Hunting Pack (5) The paint scheme is rather simple and quick to paint and does not really require much precision: Deep green over black undercoat, followed by a heavy drybrush with a bottle green, such as Dark Angels Green or similar. Over this a lighter drybrush on the legs/arms and very very lightly on the belly and underside in general with an olive green such as 70.967 Vallejo Model Color Olive Green or the old citadel goblin green. The back gets some reddish brown or terracotta, followed by a sandy yellow/ochre that leaves some of the reddish brown visible around the edges. On this a light drybrush with 70.976 Vallejo Model Color Buff or similar bone yellow colour. Mix in some white for a final highlight if desired. Gloss black on claws, paint in the eyes as follows: the entire eyeball and eyesocket in black or something very dark. The eyeball in buff, then some transparent yellow (or citadel cassandora yellow shade) with some thinned transparent orange in the middle. When dry, a thin vertical line of black, followed by gloss varnish on only the eyeballs. Teeth in a light beige or whatever you like. I made 45x30 oval bases for them. I need to say that the Bones Black material is very good for PVC minis, and far superior to the regular white Bones material. But these minis have some questionable detailing around the hands and feet. Or should I say lumpy bits at the end of the legs? It would seem that the factory has maybe pulled a fast one on Reaper and the QC has let us all down on these specific minis by not spotting this and having it fixed before signing off on them. I don't really mind all that much as the bits in question are for the most part hidden in the basing flockmix, but it is a bit frustrating knowing that they both could and should have had crisper details on the feet and hand claws. Oi you lot! Gerroff my lawn!
  9. So, is this inspired by Megalania, or is it something else entirely? Megalania was a giant monitor lizard that lived in Australia up to about 50.000 years ago, and might have been about this size compared to a human. It did as far as I know not have a spiney ridge all down the back or horizontally along the tail. Or is this more of a Crocodilian precursor like Dynamosuchus Collisensis that lived a whopping 230 million years ago, at the very Dawn of the Dinosaurs? That one would be smaller though, and still not have the back- and tailspines. At any rate, Hornslasher: Painting beasts such as this is a doddle: black undercoat, heavy dark blue drybrush, then some darkish greenish ochre and assorted sandy, green, and some pale blue grey. Pale belly and undersides. Claws and teeth in offwhite. I did some electric blue dots on the face just to get some colour in. This is mostly a case of throwing some colour on here and there to hint of stripes or patterns in the hide, and then to just stop at some point. A very light dusty drybrush to unify a bit and done. Dark purply red and pink in the mouth. I based it similarily to the Enormous Crocodile I did some weeks ago, with a thin, oval base that was half "muddy waters" going the length of the body. 100x50mm 3D printed base, built up to the left hindquarters with some scraps of plastic and putty. Still large enough to be a serious threat to the denizens of the Lost Valley. This mini was finished August 18th 2020. 44068 Hornslasher from the Lost Valley Expansion Bones 4 kickstarter, delivered 2019 Reaper Miniatures Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Made in Bones Black PVC 100x50mm bespoke 3D printed base available from reapermini.com
  10. Click to witness the magnificence of the Giant Mammoth God!
  11. This is another mini in the Bones 4 Fan Favorites expansion that really should have been in the Lost Valley expansion. The Mammoth. One of the tusks snapped in two because I have butterfingers and dropped the model to the floor at one point. This highlighted a crucial difference between the rigid and more brittle Bones Black material and the rubbery Classic Bones material that would not have snapped. (At least I have never had any classic Bones snap, and I have dropped quite a few of them, let me tell you. Also the large ones.) Luckily the break was clean and the tusk glued on without much ado nor filling or even filing needed. It had not even warped out of shape. Can you tell which tusk broke off by looking at the pictures? Mammoths dissappeared after the last Ice Age about 10.000 years ago, with a holdout herd on some remote island lasting up until about 4000 years ago. Exactly why they died out is cause for much speculation. I believe the answer is a rather down to earth; "them wuz good eatin' ". I hold no truck with the modern myth that says ancient humans were living in harmony with nature. Humans will hunt and eat other species to extinction, and have done so innumerable times in the past. I think humans as a species are and always have been too selfish and too small minded to see the wider consequences of their actions. Witness the ongoing burning or clearing of rain forests all over the world, the rampant overfishing of international waters, or even just the dumping of garbage everywhere from litter on the streets to throwing wet wipes down the toilet. Short term gains (or even convenience) for individual groups of humans will in most cases win over longer term conservation of our environment unless conservation efforts are forcibly enforced in force by other forceful groups of humans who are willing to actually use force. Such is the sad state of the human condition. Oh well, In the expansion art during the kickstarter, it said "huge" next to the image, but when the shipment arrived, it was not all that huge...so they called it "pygmy mammoth". It is not really all that small when placed next to a human sized model. IRL a woolly mammoth could be around 4 metres tall. Looks about right to me. Maybe not the largest individiual that could exist, but still within normal size parameters. Still not "huge" though. "Huge" would be a proper Fantasy mammoth. This mini was completed August 12th 2020 Pygmy Mammoth, from the Fan Favorites Expansion Bones 4 kickstarter, delivered 2019 Reaper Miniatures Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Made in Bones Black PVC 102x52mm bespoke 3D printed base available from reapermini.com
  12. So I had this idea that Viridius was a forest dragon, and that his scales would color with the leaves of his trees. I started on him about 6 months ago and finally finished him this weekend. Big pictures so i'll spoiler most of them but I'm very happy with how he came out. Going to be doing some additional work on my basing game in the future. Pictures are the best I can do at this time, he's way too big for my photo box, so I did my best to set up some canvases around to reflect light around as much as I could. Want more? Here's the WIP thread
  13. Naturally, the giants of the Lost Valley are Stone Giants, seeing as the Lost Valley is in the Stone Age. FeeFie, Fo and Fum the three Stone Giants. I rebased them on 60mm bases. click to see more pics
  14. Look at that winning smile! He wants you to come for dinner.... Reaper Bones Burrowing Horror (SKU 77372) I am sad to see the paint has rubbed off in some places, might have to try to patch that up by using some Reaper liner.
  15. My son's girlfriend stayed with us a week in the middle of May and I ran a Savage World WW2 horror one-shot for my husband, my son and the girlfriend. Ernesto here was one of the pre-generated characters I had ready (Guerilla Hernando Sanchez), and my husband played him. Ernesto, Revolutionary Reaper SKU 50043
  16. 44079 Giant Cave Sloth (#617) Fossils of Megatherium (which literally means "Great Beast") aka the giant ground sloth have been found in deposits dated to the Pliocene era 5.33 million and up to the Holocene, about 8.000 years ago. Which means it actually may have been contemprorary to early modern humans. Who in turn might even have killed them off. After all, a 4 ton elephant sized sloth might be both easy to catch and good eating. 50mm base. Sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Great Beasts indeed! From the Lost Valley expansion Bones 4 kickstarter, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Made in Bones Black PVC available from reapermini.com These models were completed the 2nd of May.
  17. 44075 Axebeak (#608) Axebeak, or Phorusrhacos, was one of the great terror birds of the Miocene era, about 23-2.6 million years ago. Also it is, in fact, the direct forebearer of the modern era Chocobo bird. This Primal Chocobo was rather more bloody minded than the modern one, and would not accept any riders whatsover. The base I printed out for it is 65x35mm. Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Great Beasts indeed! From the Lost Valley expansion Bones 4 kickstarter, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Made in Bones Black PVC available from reapermini.com These models were completed the 2nd of May.
  18. 44082 Cave Bear (#624) The cave bear lived from the Pleistocene era (That's the Ice Ages to us normal folks) which lasted from 2.580.000 years ago to about 11.700 years ago. However, it seems to have gone extinct about 24.000 years ago. Which certainly is contemporary with modern humans. Them cave bears must have been delicious. And the shaggy furs kept us warm in those cold, cold caves. 60x35mm base. Sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Great Beasts indeed! From the Lost Valley expansion Bones 4 kickstarter, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Made in Bones Black PVC available from reapermini.com These models were completed the 2nd of May.
  19. 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.
  20. Hi everyone, here are pictures of my latest Gnoll, a converted Toghra the Gnoll Leader. The upper part is from 77235, Toghra the Gnoll Leader sculpted by Jason Wiebe. The lower part of the mini is 77236, Bloodmane Gnoll Warrior sculpted by Tre Manor. The spear head is the blade of 02757, Gastaroth the Vampire sculpted by Werner Klocke and the staff is from 14056 Weapon Pack 1 sculpted by Tim Kaufman. Here's the link to the conversion WIP if you'd like more information.
  21. "Lost Valley" is one of the expansions to Bones 4, and incidentially the first of the expansions I will tackle after completing the Bones 4 Core set. Lost Valley is, as the name suggests, the Land that Time Forgot style prehistoric setting where dinosaurs and cavemen live side by side. Or rather, where Dinosaurs rule the land while Men cower in caves. More than anything, the minis make me think of the 1981 movie Quest for Fire: The classic Ron Pearlman's acting debut movie. If you have not seen it, do so. It does conflate several periods of mankind's evolution, but is not all that far off being a reasonably historically accurate representation of the early stone age as far as I know. It does not call itself historical anyhow, but a "science fantasy". Also Iron Maiden made a song inspired by this film. Note that Iron Maiden competely craps out in the very first line of the song: "In a time when dinosaurs walked the earth When the land was swamp and caves were home In an age when prize possession was fire To search for landscapes men would roam." The rest is a good summary of the movie, but critically there are no dinosaurs in the film, or even in the time period portrayed. The Movie is set about 80.000 years ago. Dinosaurs had been extinct more or less 65.000.000 years already. Dayum! The Lost Valley, however, does not care about such trifling detail. So, on to the miniatures: According to the flavour text on the inside flaps on the Expansion box, The People of the Dawnlands are peaceful hominids that are fleet of foot and grow their own crops in the central plain region of the Lost Valley. They worship the goddess Makoteli, a deity of Fertility and Agriculture. Presumably the Fertility Idol represents the aforementioned Makoteli. #610 Shaman go to the mountainsofminis if you want to see the shamans nipples #611 Spearman Male Pattern Baldness was a thing also in the Stone Age. #612 Caveboy Carrying the Sacrificial Orange. #613 Clubber The skin was done in grey with Citadel Reikland Fleshshade, carefully drybrushed with Vallejo Nocturna Pale Flesh and light grey. The two braves have oval 25x35mm bases, as I did not want to use 30mm rounds on them, but their action pose was too wide for a 25mm round. Maybe I should have printed out some 25x30 or 25x32mm for these but I just used what I had to hand, which happened to be 25x35mm. #615 Fertility Idol This statue is presumably based on (aka copied off) the actual stone age figurine "Venus of Willendorf" found in 1908 in Austria and that dates back around 30.000 years. The real thing is about 11cm tall, carved out of limestone and and painted with ochre. As such it is one of the earliest examples of painted miniatures known. Truly, this hobby has ancient roots! https://maledrakh.files.wordpress.com/2020/04/200410-reaper-bones-4-lost-valley-44077-people-of-the-dawnlands-conan.jpg Wait! Why so angry? All I did was help myself to some of your delicious breaksfast spread there!?! 44077: People of the Dawnlands (4) 44093: Fertility Idol Bones 4, Lost Valley Expansion, 2019 Reaper Miniatures Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Made in Bonesium PVC 25mm and 25x35mm bases available from reapermini.com These models were painted on or around the 8th and 9th of April.
  22. Doing the Young Owlbear made me want to do this old one as well. This owlbear is the O.G. owlbear off the very first of the Reaper Bones kickstarters. It always was a bit weird and extra insane looking, quite different from other owlbears I have seen. Also it was droopy and askew on it's base. I drilled into the leg from under the base and inserted a long rod to keep it stiff and keeping the talons off the ground. Straightened that c***er out,. Far too much as it turned out. So I glued the original base to the new one at an angle. Maybe the angle should have been even steeper as it is a bit up in the air. At any rate, insane-looking owlbear = joker = clown = parrot. Time to break out the Napoleonic colours. It's pining for the fjords! Beautiful plumage, esquire! Polly wanna Cracker! 77156 Owlbear Bones 1 Core set, 2012 Reaper Miniatures Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Made in Bonesium PVC 50mm base. available from reapermini.com
  23. Hi everyone, here are some pictures of a converted Reaper Miniatures, Bloodmane the Gnoll Warrior. The upper part of the miniature is 77236, Bloodmane Gnoll Warrior sculpted by Tre Manor, the lower part is from 77235, Toghra the Gnoll Leader sculpted by Jason Wiebe and the bear skull axe is from the 14056, Weapon Pack 1 sculpted Tim Kaufman. The Hyenas are from 03277 Hyena Pack sculpted by Jason Wiebe.
  24. Hi everyone, here are two Reaper 03277 Hyena. These Dark Heaven Legends models were sculpted by Jason Wiebe.
  25. So I needed a break from all the Bones 4 minis. And dug into the Bones 3 stash for variations sake. I found one of my old modules -The Village of Hommlet, and spent some time reading. Ah, The Moathouse! Brings back memories! And I got inspired to do the Bandits from the Bones 3 Stoneskull expansion, as they were similar in style to the ones I recently painted. And to flesh out the band, I added a couple of other Bones 3 minis that were in the same drawer, and that I thought might fit in a band of robbers. One quick paint job later: I want your money...and your life! From the "Dwarf Kings Companions" add-on set, this is the 77574 Dwarf Royal Weaponmaster Sculpted by Jason Wiebe 30mm base Just add the bones 4 ones to this lot, and there we have a goodly group of bandits. Or a unit of irregulars / rabble or whatnot in some wargame or other.
