    New Here!

    Heya guys! I’m relatively new to the hobby and I’ve only recently discovered Reaper minis. This is my new favorite company, great pieces that even a broke dude like me can afford. I suffer from partial blindness so extreme details can be a challenge....but it’s just for fun so whatevs. I plan on spending my remaining years of vision painting as many pieces as I can. I’ve seen some really incredible work from you guys! Thanks and feel free to hit me up. I’m always down to chat about minis and always open to critique. I’m here to learn. - Jelly This is my first completed Reaper product: Athak, Undead Knight!

    Avatar of Rage 77586

    Saw this figure in my LGS a while back, decided to buy it, and now I'm using it as my new DnD character. He was quite intriguing to paint. I really enjoyed this one. I used Citadel paints for it. I also gave it a spray undercoat first, I do with all minis even ones that are already primed, too much of a habit now.

    Black legionnaire 02464

    Inspired by Doug Sundseth’s red and white legionnaire, I did this mini for a paladin I want to play in an upcoming campaign. This guy offered a lot of fun details, especially the sword and sheath. I used Liquitex basics, with some Agrax Earthshade

    All done up for a Halloween present. Hope you all enjoy, this was a fun one!

    02464: Black Legionnaire

    Found this figure looking for a two-handed swordsman in plate for an RPG character. Metals are P3 paints, the rest is a mixture of manufacturers.
  6. I got this mini in the Mini Painting 101 class at ReaperCon. This was our first ReaperCon - my wife and I took the class together. I’d painted about a dozen minis (badly) for D&D before going to RC. I like this sculpt, and I wanted to work on improving my basic painting skills. I decided to keep working on her to see how far I can go. I’ve spent an embarrassingly large amount of time on her already. I do feel like I’m learning a lot though and getting better at controlling my brush and getting paint consistency right. I broke out one of the good brushes I had bought and not touched - a da Vinci Maestro. I still feel unworthy to use it but maybe it will help me get better. I’ve done a lot of work on the red armor already, but still need to do some more highlighting. I think I might have overdone the highlights on the green ropes in some places. I was planning to glaze them down and redo a bit smaller. Thanks for taking a look. I would greatly appreciate any feedback or tips on what I can improve on the parts I’ve worked on already. Here she is so far - she looks a lot better if you squint.

    Dire Crab BONES 4

    I don’t have the lot number yet. Also, this is my first post so guidance on posting conventions is welcome. The Bones 4 haul was extraordinary! Edit: sized down. I’ll figure out how to get down to 150 kB later.

    Jasper vs. Duck Season

    As mentioned in the Rabbits topic, when I first saw 03929: Drangus, Duckman Warrior, I knew I'd found the opposition for my Rabbits. The problem is, duckmen don't seem nearly as common as Rabbits. This is my current "army". That's two copies of Drangus and Oathsworn's duck-billed platypus (it's got a bill so close enough!!). So far my quick search has only tracked down one set of Duckmen, by Rebel Minis (bookmarked!!). I'm hoping Reaper will expand their Duckman line in the comming months as well (please?). I'll be doing a weapon swap on one of the two Drangus's (Drangi?) to make them a little different. So if you know of any more Duckmen figs, or just duck figs, or really any associated waterfowl or waterfowlmen, feel free to let me know.
  9. So! This is my attempt at getting some fire lit under my behind and get to painting. I love miniature painting, been doing it... 15 years? Probably more if I count my Warhammer history. At some point I went from 'painting to game' to 'game to paint'. :) I have a lot of miniatures and a lot ambition. Unfortunately I also have a job that I love and I spend a lot of time with. When I do not though... I like to paint. I also like to GM, in the last years I have finished Serpent's Skull (Paizo AP), well at the time of writing the final session has been planned. I am also running Skull & Shackles, another Paizo AP. I have strongly modified book 6, which is where my PCs are at the moment. So that one is ending soon as well. Then I plan to take a break, maybe a year. Let some of the players run one-shots, a module, etc. Recharge the juices. :) Something that has been on my mind since it came out though was me wanting to run Wrath of the Righteous, a Paizo AP about a demon invasion/liberation thing. It is their mythic AP, basically a right good excuse to have the most epic demons, spellcasters, landscapes, etc. And of course, me being me, that gets in my head and I want to run it... Sure. But I want to run it fully painted and pretty. Not likely to happen, but I can try. I've been half-sassed trying to get stuff painted for... a while now. Ok years. I want to catalog the 'journey' a bit more. So I shall start a painting log specifically about the AP. So: Spoilers for the 'Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path' for Pathfinder from here on in. Complete spoilery expected! *** *** *** *** Alright then. I have already finished painting a bunch of minis for the campaign. I shall get to re-posting those pictures sometime soon. I wanna get my hands dirty a bit again first. So I am focussing on the models Reaper Miniatures made specifically for WotR. Right now I have Xanthir Vang, a worm that walks from book 3, and Aravashnial, an NPC from book 1 onward on my table. I am also painting another Reaper miniature as Horgus Gwerm, a wealthy merchant. The miniature is actually a, I think, limited miniature specifically for Pathfinder Society. A friend in PFS gave it to me, cause he knew I love minis. It is called Grandmaster Torch, and was a 2010 Paizocon exclusive. :) Instead of creating a thousand-and-one WIPs I am going to just throw it all in here. :) So to get things started. The three characters on my desk atm! Horgus Gwerm (rich merchant) Not available in the Reaper store :( Aravashnial (an elf caster) Available here: Aravashniel, Elf Wizard Xanthir Vang (Worm-that-walks) Available here: Xanthir Vang

    Trick or Treat Witch

    Good Evening! SO after sorting through my minis and cleaning up my workstation post reaper con, I felt inspired to tackle some techniques that I have been avoiding. I wanted to pick a mini that i felt I could paint quickly (but lessbehonest, I don't paint quickly at all) and that would be a good candidate for two techniques that I am trying to learn. after a long drawn out process of hemming and hawing I found a miniature that I received an unmentionable number of years ago from reaper as a prize for buying miniatures during October. So it is Krissy the modern witch with out her familiar. I have an idea of what I want to do, I want to keep the miniature a tight focus on OSL and Transparent fabric. If I am feeling like it after I have completed the mini, I may do a special base for her. I feel pretty good about my understanding of color, but I think this is going to be a pretty good challenge. Here's what I have so far.

    Speed painting NPCs

    I'm running an adventure. I'm running an adventure that starts with a ball. A ball full of NPCs. Half are important, half die in the first few sessions. How to keep my players from distinguishing? Paint them all. Aaaaall of them. I have kept myself to less than 3 hours per mini. First, High Strategos Maxillar Pythareus. He's #77200 Sir Conlan The blue and green, while visually dull, will be a recurring theme among the NPCs. The kingdom's heraldry is a gold crown and white lion over a blue and green field.
  13. This is my diorama entry from Reapercon 2019 "Done and on to the next one". It received silver in the diorama category and 2nd place Dark Sword Individual Figure. The two figures are DSM7627 Female Ranger with Bow from Dark Sword Miniatures and 77189 Creature from the Blood Reef (Bones version) from Reaper Miniatures. My intention with this piece was to show a dynamic interaction between the two figures as compactly as possible and with a clear indication of the action, but with enough uncertainty in the details that the observer can be lead to many different interpretations of the story. For example, did the creature just miss her with a claw attack, or is he clinging to the rock in dying desperation while she contemptuously uses him as a launch pad? I went through many challenges with this figure (including crushing her in transport, breaking off her arm, crushing the bow and snapping off her leg at the ankle). Some of the detail work I did on this included: cleaning out the quiver and sculpting new arrows re-sculpting her chest and back to be a wool dress (the original figure has a bare stomach and back) adding the taught bow string using monofilament fishing line changing her bracer so that the buckles are on the side away from the bow string carving up and adjusting the creature layer by layer until he fit exactly where I wanted him (this is why I chose the Bones version - I would have found it nearly impossible with a metal figure) I am very grateful to Brice Cocanour who gave me a lot of advice on how to bring out the best look of the piece by adjusting the colour and value balance. He was also kind enough to let me use some of his tools and his big container of water effects to fix some of the problems with the base. Once again, I learned a ton from seeking help from the artists. I also really appreciate the feedback I got from the judges. As a first-timer at the MSP Open, I made some newbie mistakes that I will fix for next time, and as a long-time painter, I appreciated being told exactly where things were off so that I could reflect on them for future projects. The judges feedback was: They liked the tartan, the fabric texture and the colour choice. Some of the lines on the tartan could be made cleaner. One way to do this is to do the lines repeatedly with very thin paint. Small mistakes are then harder to see, but the correct position of the line gets hit repeatedly making the visual appearance of the lines neater. Another suggestion was to map out the tartan pattern in light grey first before adding any colour. Use pure white to make landmarks at the intersection points of the lines which are bright enough to show through the subsequent paint layers. This helps to make the layout of the pattern more precise and less risky. Because the pattern is laid out before any colour is added or a lot of work is put into highlights and shading, any mistakes in the layout can be corrected without having to do a lot of repair work. Overall composition was good with the story being very clear with the construction being very tight and kept to the essentials (no wasted space and unnecessary features). They liked the overall skin tone and highlight placement to focus attention on her face. They pointed out where improvements were needed to some of the blends on the skin, specifically on her calf where some of the shadow, dirt and highlight blends are misaligned or too abrupt and not bright enough (her ankle for example needs to be a bit brighter). The final surface texture of her skin could have been smoother. Suggestions for this included using brush-on sealer to smooth out flaws, paying close attention to cleanliness of the figure (eg large dust particles) and removing them as soon as they are found, then filling the craters and smoothing their edges, and glazing additional layers of the mid-tone to smooth out some of the edges of the blends. Clean up the water effects where they meet the base to give a crisper line between the action and the base. It was recommended to mount the diorama directly onto the wooden plinth if possible rather than on a gaming base attached to the top of the plinth. The judges scores were 3, 3 and 4 for 10/12 (Silver).

    An experiment 02889 and others

    This grouping is a little eclectic because I was experimenting with a new medium. While I was at Reapercon, James Wapple introduced me to the joys of using oils to help me work on my tabletop minis and my blending. When I got home I found I had everything lying around except for some quality thinner so I got some of that, sat down and gave it a try. He has a number of YouTube videos describing the technique better than I ever could but it basically uses the fact that oils have an exceptionally long drying time to allow for some really nice wet blending without developing chalkyness or the layer steps I always get in dry blending. The oils being a heavier body also seems to help me give the mini a fur effect of different hairs across the body What I found was a new method, for me, that should help me clear a lot of army minis and take them from primed to done and looking good in a very short period of time. First thing I tried wss a whitehorm stag that I had sitting next to my desk when I got home. It was by wizkids and pre primed so easy pickens including setup that was about 40 minutes work and my first try. Next up wss a hippogryph which has been haunting my shelf of shame for 4 years now because I could never get the horse part right While not as good on the feathers (feathers aren't easy for me and these are barely scored enough to show detail) I finally got some results on the horsey part that I actually liked: nice warm red tones and highlights that don't look painted on. The chest feathers in was also able to get some highlights into that don look drybrushed. And again, this was another 40 minutes or so. Finally I decided to try some rats that I needed for a (hopefully) upcoming Rangers of Shadow's Deep campaign. Since the method Scott showed me uses #6 and #8 brushes I was curious how it would work on Such a small mini. I think it did very well, again giving me noce highlights in the fur without looking drybrushed and without taking a huge amount of time (30 minutes for the lot) Not too bad for my first few tries. I especially like how the greys and browns turned out but even the white rats have some character. I am certainly going to give it some more time and minis, both for animals and a huge group of Wrath of Kings minis that have languished in the back of my shelves for years. Hope you like what you see. They are my first trys and I really like the results

    Reapercon 2019 Bonehenge Iconic

    I can't recall which iconic she is, but I started her during Reapercon.
  16. First time posting to the Forum. Feedback welcome! Thanks.
  17. Here is the Tiefling Sorcerer I just started working on for my next D&D campaign. My lovely wife is a writer and helped me with the backstory. Take a gander at the backstory and let me know what you think if you'd like... Otherwise, just take a look at the figure and follow along. I've been going back and forth with whether or not I should cut his horns off to fit the backstory or not.

    Fertility Idol

    I recently painted this fertility idol from Bones 4. Just for fun. Technically they are stone statue boobies, but boobies are boobies. CLICK HERE FOR VIEW FROM THE FRONT <--- (Stone) NUDITY Here is 'her' back though. :) PS: Couldn't find her in the store atm, maybe not released yet?

    KS Bones (Reaper)

    What's better to start my KS Bones topic than Mr. Bones himself ? (bigger pics on my blog : click the pic to go there)
  20. With my Cadian army nearly finished and my wife's army at a playable state I decided to take a break from 40k painting. Since I've been painting for our actual armies for so long I decided to start a new WIP thread rather than use my old random projects thread (the "Too Many Projects" thread will be replaced by this one). But before getting too far ahead I'd like to show everyone just how bad my box got while painting for 40k and killteam. This of course doesn't include any GW boxes I may or may not have on hand to paint "just for fun". I swear I'll paint those Skaven sooner or later. Though some of the figures were closer to completion, I simply couldn't resist painting one I've had my eye on for months (I mean this quite literally as the figure sat on my lamp's base since I first got it and probably ended up in the background of many of my progress shots). When I first pulled this from a box of goodwill I knew exactly what I wanted to do. This figure just screamed Don Quixote, at least to me it did. So that's exactly how I painted it and though it may just be a simple paint job I'm already thinking about creating a new character just to use it.

    77456 OGRE GUARD

    Here is my Reaper Bones Ogre Guard, 77456. It took a long time to finish the skin. I had a hard time getting it right with dry brushing layer upon layer and several washes, but I like the way it turned out.

    Cave Spider

    3rd large figure of the year completed. @Roonfizzle made a request for some giant spiders and we just so happened to get this guy from Bones 4. I am not looking forward to running into this one in the dark someday soonish. I really like how it came out though, particularly the stone work. I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone and make the stone multicolored; instead of just shades of grey, so I figured it was a good time to give wet blending a try. C&C welcome.

    77113: Eldritch Demon

    Hey gang! Thought I'd post the Eldritch Demon I painted recently. I decided to take a departure from the iconic green flesh mythos monster look and try a more orangey-jaundice flesh tone. Also used a yellow/orange mix to highlight the cool patterns covering the skin. Also, used the MSP Adamantium Black to give the base a neat volcanic/space rock look. I did keep the tentacles a traditional pink colour. Just seemed to fit with the whole new flesh, soft and squishy, feel (like a sea creature without its shell?)... Cheers! :) -E.E.

    03138 Necromancer with tome

    The last of my recent work. Always wanted to try/do (first attempt) an orange dress on a female character as it's my favorite color but always told myself to wait and do it on an elf, but for some reason she just happened to turn orange.
