    Frost Giant Raiders

    This is my first post here on the forums, but I've been a fan of Reaper for a while now. I've also been painting a while, but only got serious about learning in the last couple years. I've been working at tabletop ready level until I set my sights on these two frost giants. The detail is amazing in these models, so I felt like I had to throw myself into it and produce the best paint job I could. These are the very first pieces I've ever felt were worth considering entering into a competition of any sort. They are currently my best work, and yet I know that I have a long way to go with much to learn. Together they took 5 days to complete, working about 6-8 hours each day while I recover from shoulder surgery. Some quick notes: 1. The bases are what came with the minis, please disregard them, I plan on following up in this post with custom bases for each of them. 2. The Winter Wolf that belongs to the one with the spear is not done yet. He'll be forthcoming in time. 3. Yes, I modded the spear. I cut off the head and used a spare brush protector tube to connect it to a wood dowel. I used a stain marker on the wood dowel and painted the spear head and tube. This meant that I had to drill out her hand. It was a bit dicey, but it turned out well, I think. Thanks, TPSminis

    Hey all! Here's a quick speedpaint from this evening. It was a two hour deal, from prime to varnish. The only thing that I did yesterday was assembly.

    Everyone was so nice when I posted my hellhounds so I feel confident enough to post this guy.

    Bones 4 hellhounds

    So these are the first things I've painted that I've felt really really proud of and wanted to share.

    Well after over a year I'm back to painting again. Just going to work through the pain until I can get the surgeries I need. Beats lying in bed all day and I can't stand looking at all that Bones 4 sitting there unpainted anymore. lol. Its not bad I think for the first thing I painted in over a year I think.

    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.

    17308 High Rollers - Bones 4

    Greetings! Presenting the High Rollers! I wanted to keep these chaps looking bright & cartoony so I went with primary & secondary colours for their bodies & I tried to keep these colours appropriate to their character. Pyram "The Pincher" Aleon Octrox D'Tenian Thacovius Sir Vigintor Pyp Thanks for looking!
  9. I really like the small boats from Reaper 4. One critique though Reaper? You should design items like this with places for 1x1 or 1" Dia bases to actually fit. I want playability over looks when it comes to stuff like this.

    Bones 4 Chibi Barbarian

    For some reason these cartoony looking characters inspire me to do cartoony things with them. I thought it would be fun to try blue skin.

    Bones 4 Chibi Sorcerer

    I wanted to try two things with this one. Paint a realistic crystal and paint an unusual hair color. I don’t feel that I succeeded on either account. It’s really hard to make opaque plastic look like translucent crystal. Green eyes this time, followed by working out from the skin to the outer layers.

    Bones 4 Chibi Paladin

    With the flaming sword this miniature was an obvious candidate for me to attempt OSL. I’ve tried it half a dozen times and it usually looks terrible. I’m pretty happy with how this one came out. It's not great but it's the first one that doesn't look like I spilled paint on it.

    Bones 4 Chibi Sophie

    This appears to be a chibi style recreation of Reaper Miniatures’ Troll-Slayer Sophie. As usual, I started with the eyes. With this mini I wanted to focus on blues as a theme so I started with blue eyes. The blue eyes seemed to call for blond hair — mostly because yellow and blue are nearly opposite on the color wheel = higher contrast. I like to completely finish each layer before moving on to the next. It’s an unusual method but one that works for me. Then the armor and wings and then finishing touches.

    Bones 4 Chibi Fighter

    ’ve been experimenting with a few colors lately. Red and Green have great contrast but remind most people of Christmas. I’ve been trying to find ways to use those two colors without making people think of festivities. This is my most recent attempt. I started with red eyes because she looked like she was angry. From there I decided to try challenging myself again and do red skin and hair as well. I’m actually pleased with how this came out. This hair looks the best of any I’ve ever painted. Some of the early pictures her shield arm is unattached because I needed to be able to paint underneath it.

    Bones 4 Translucent Ghost Pirates

    I recently painted a pack of passed-away pea-green pirates that you can practically peer through, and posed the party for some pictures. Pithy painting prose on the particulars posted for perusal: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2019/05/ghost-pirates-bones-4-figures.html I ordered an additional set of the pirates so i could have a unit of 10 for gaming purposes.
  16. The Dragonman something from the Bones 4 core set. This mini actually comes in many parts and with a selection of different weaponry and hand-held things. I went with the bucaneery sabre and dagger on account of the high boots looking a little piratey. Also, this is what the render shown in the KS looked like. I went with a bronze / gold armour and my new darker flock mix. Turned out well in my opinion at least. The base is a 3D printed 35x25mm lipped oval as I thought a 40mm round was too large. B4Core #16 Dragonman (?) Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS 2017 unknown sculptor Bonesium PVC. 35x25mm 3D printed oval lipped base should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future

    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.

    Maledrakh's Bones 4 knights

    The subset called "knights" in the Bones 4 core set. These are NPC or henchmen-types. Wait a minuite! Do I really think that just because they have covered faces? Dang! I chose to use plain white capes, loincloths and so forth as a common denominator, which let them all have their own individual livery colours. B4Core #57 B4Core #58 B4Core #59 B4Core #60 B4Core #61 At least the unarmoured fencing instructor has more than a stick this time around when the white cloaks come. What do we say to the god of death? These also seem to be new sculpts for this KS. Come to think of it, this lot should be good proxies for Kings of War Vanguard Basileans. Knights subset Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS 2017 Sculpted by ?? Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped bases should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future
  20. B4Core #20: Hm. I seem to have merely blocked the cocks. Need some smooth gradient work maybe. I belive this to be a new, digital sculpt for the Bones 4 KS. Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS 2017 Sculpted by ?? Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped base should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future Arnold is a bit on the short side, isn't he? Or is that perhaps Brienne the Beauty's taller sister? I have cut off the integral bases, as I like them all to have similar base styles, and the Bones bases are all over the place.. Even though some of the newer oval ones are nice, in the end they just had to go.
  21. B4core #1: This one was a bit of a struggle as I foolishly started from a black undercoat and later decided to do the tabard and shield in white. Bad Idea! Especially when I accidentally managed to paint a black line on the finished white shield....argh! seven coats of white later is can still be seen, albeit faintly. I am not entirely happy with the results around the sheild design, which ended up less sharp than I would like. This is also the same shield design as on the Bones 3 "crusaders" subset and also on Sir Justin Forscale, so apparently they are members of the same knightly order or follow the same deity. There exists a metal version of this minis called "Ava Justinia, Female Templar" Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS 2017 Sculpted by Bobby Jackson Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped base should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future

    Raptor Pack Speedpaint

    I am running a D&D Noble Gala for my Elder Spawns game. Once the party gets rolling the dinosaurs are going to show up. These are speedpainted - but as a group, less than 5 hours total. they are color-coded with the eyes matching the colors on base.

    Bones 4: Maggotcrown Ogre

    I'm just about finished with my final piece for ReaperCon, and I needed a break. I needed to paint something fun and with no consequence. I've been eyeing this sculpt from across the room, and I just decided to go for it. Nothing super crazy, just some true metallics, which I haven't done much with in some time. Enjoy!

    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?

    Herbalist from Bones 4

    Finally getting a start on my Reapercon entries. Feel free to comment or laugh at my inability to paint skin.
