  1. This is what happens when you spend an afternoon watching a double bill of Jason and the Argonauts and Clash of the Titans (80's version), you remember you picked up a big Zeus-alike in a Kickstarter and you must paint him NOW:- Here he is all washed, boiled, straightened, scraped, assembled and primed. Since I'm a messy drybrusher, I did the base first. The stone started with a base of Stone Grey, while the dirt is Leather Brown, it all got a Black Wash, then the stone got a heavy drybrush of more Stone Grey and then everything got a lighter drybrush of Ghost Grey. Since he's so big, I'm going to paint him in sections, starting with his left leg.
  2. Hard to believe, but I actually got a few hours of painting in the past couple weeks and finished some minis. Most to toy box standard for my Kids Hero Kids adventure. I am probably going to add some flock/bushes to the base of a couple of them. I was sloppier on the Bones minis due to the dang mold lines and soft features. First a group shot. For the scenery a Bones Candelabra by Bob Ridolfi (77138) and some portals for Massive Darkness (I have around twenty treasure chest I need to finish the trim on as well….soon) These two minis have been base coated for a while. The weakest of the group, but good enough for the adventures. 14329 Street Thug, Mercenary Grunt by Bobby Jackson and 30026 Pirate with Treasure Chest More Bones. 77140 Townsfolk Village Rioter by Bobby Jackson. 02583 Female Server from Townsfolk 1 by Bobby Jackson. 77396 Olivia Female Cleric by Werner Klocke (I like this mini, but not the paint job I achieved). 77206 Friar Stone Human Monk by Tre Manor (this one suffered from Bones due to a bunch of extra bits of flash. Even so I like the final product and wouldn’t mind getting this one in a better material in the future). 02950 Townsfolk VII Clergy by Bobby Jackson. And the easiest is Knight from the 77673 Knight of the Realm by Tim Hill. A nice sculpt that filled in as animated armor. And some metal minis for Frostgrave from Osprey Minis. I really like the FGV343 Ballista II Construct. The two FGV303 small constructs will probably be gifted to my kids characters for saving the wizard when his constructs went rouge.
  3. Hello All, Here is a Bones Plastic 77467 "Rheagar, Male Fighter" miniature I completed last January. When I first started on this miniature it reminded me of a character from a certain 80's animated series that I enjoyed. I think it was the armor and shield that gave me that impression. So, I decided to paint it to match this character. My thought was that this is that character all grown up and having returned to the Realm. But after painting it, the face and hair reminded me more of two actors. Shemp from the 3 Stooges and Jon Bernthal from The Walking Dead and Punisher series. Thank you for looking.
  4. Hi All. I am returning to painting miniatures after a long hiatus. I have a lot of bones from the first kickstarter, a mix of unpainted metal miniatures, and some of the wiz kids pre-primed miniatures. Would the Bones Ultra Coverage Paint be a good option for a general paint set that can address all of these different material types? Thinking about buying this set: Reaper Master Series Bones Ultra-Coverage Paints Basic Set Any advice would be appreciated here.
  5. I wasn't sure about the color choices in the beginning but i like them now 🙂 I hope this mini scares my players when we play dnd! Thanks for looking!
  6. Great reaper bones mini! I just did a couple of drybrushes and a wash but I am pleased with it! Thanks for looking!
  7. I'm going to use this mini as a demon in my dnd campaign. I really like the sculpt and it was an enjoyable paintjob! 🙂 Thanks for looking!
  8. I really like this sculpt! Gave her a quick paintjob 🙂 Thanks for looking!
  9. Hey everyone, here's a 77530, Harrowgate graveyard short fence sculpter by Bob Ridolfi. I used this fence to test the colors that I'll use on my gothic church. Here is the list of colors I used;
  10. Coral Golem for my local paint club entry. I wanted to do something different, It seems the norm to paint everything in bright colors do I wanted to simulate all the coral being dead.
  11. I already finished terrain for Q2. I had started the Strumpet. Categories I’m working on: Large Group: Townsfolk Strumpet Large Figure: Cave Spider Theme April Showers: Deep Dweller with an acrylic resin on part of the base to look wet. Pop Up: 3 townsfolk Pop Up: Gothic Ritual: Torture equipment with blood spatter. Seasonal: Petey for Deep Dish Pizza Day Heavy Mod: Tree of Despair victim: want to reposition head, ropes, spread legs, gouge out middle and sculpt intestines to look like his torturers eviscerated him.
  12. This is s figure that I painted during a speed painting class at Reapercon a couple years ago. I decided to go back and clean up a couple things that I think could have been a little better. I know that's not quite the idea of speed painting, but I brought him to my tabletop standard, so I'm happy with him now.
  13. Havn't done much painting this past month, mainly been doing spring cleaning which wore me out. but did manage to get this done in between naps, lol. Love and watched the way Anne Forster did hers on reaper pro tips (twitch) and had to paint it, of course even thou wish I could of copy her skin tone that just wouldn't be fair, so I did my own spin on it.
  14. Hello All, I completed this "Gutrags", Stitch Golem miniature today. Made it a bit dirty and worn.
  15. The mischievous horde is on its way! This is 77444, Goblin Warrior with greatsword sculpted by Bobby Jackson. That be a scimitar I'd say. The base is 20mm.
  16. More minis from my Shelf of Shame Long-Term, Partially-Completed Backlog: A trio of kobolds from one of the Reaper Bones kickstarters! These are some of the tiniest minis I've painted. Even so, it took about 2 long evenings to complete them. I did lots of practice of NMM steel and gold. I'm now of the opinion that NMM works better than metallics for small minis. The clothing was originally red, but I found it was too close to the orange of the skin color and just blended together from about 2 feet away, so they got repainted to a color/tone that was more distinct. I prefer that my kobolds be weird dog/lizard hybrid creatures, so they all got black noses. It looks good on these! That brings the total minis I've painted this year to 19! (With another one in the wings.)
  17. Hello All, Here is a "Dust King and Crypt" miniature set I completed a few weeks ago. Thank you for looking.
  18. Good day everyone, here's 77444, Goblin warrior with spear sculpted by Bobby Jackson. Since these goblins are sold with duplicates, I will convert the others by swapping their weapons. I will also paint the goblin command, shaman and leader.
  19. Hello All, Here is a Dwarf Butcher 77460 that I painted up a couple months ago. Thank you for looking.
  20. Hey everyone, the madness continues. Here's the 77445, Goblin skirmisher with shortbow sculpted by Bobby Jackson.
  21. Hey everyone, the tribe is still growing. Here's 77349, Goblin Shaman with spider familiar sculpted by Ben Siens.
  22. A few weeks ago I made a bit of a cheeky post where "Lassie" tried to get some help for poor Timmy (who had, quite unsurprisingly, fallen down a well). Well, the Thing in the Well wasn't quite finished at the time. That has since been rectified. I present to you: The Thing in the Well/The Well of Doom! The well was painted up with my favorite craft paint combo: Delta Ceramcoat Chocolate Cherry, Burnt Sienna, and Terra Cotta. Truly great stuff! And it's not grey! I honestly think I'm going to use that trio for most of my stone scenery. I left the fluid unattached and painted the inside of the well with a couple shades of dark blue (I no longer remember which ones). But I'm not sure whether or not I'll ever take the brain out of the well, so it was just a whim and not anything really planned. The first part of the beastie I tackled was the well "water." I knew I wasn't going to paint it up like blue water. I was hoping to create a rather unnatural vibe. I thought about green, but ended up using the NMM Gold triad. I don't know if I got the shading right, as I was trying to make the fluid darker where it would be thicker/deeper and paler near the edges and peaks. The brain was next. I used the Vampiric Skin triad for the grey matter. The veins/arteries along the surface were originally going to be red...and then I remembered that squid blood isn't red. Squid blood is blue. So out went the red (not for the only time this project). I used Nightmare Black to serve as a base for Ritterlich Blue and Brilliant Blue topped off the highlights. You can't see the "cerebellum," but I used Imperial Purple, Amethyst Purple, and Spectral White to paint it up. I was on a "cool" colors kick. And then the tentacles. Ugh. Not "ick," "ugh." My original, scatter-brained plan was to try to emulate the humboldt squid. Those rather nasty pieces of work pulse red when they're agitated. So I painted the backs of all the tentacles red. Then I put the fluid in the well and started dry-fitting the tentacles. It didn't work. None of it. Not the shade of red and not the fit of the tentacles. I ended up pinning four of the tentacles to the fluid base. There just didn't seem to be enough "plug" on them to properly sit in the base and I didn't want to drown the thing in glue. One of those pins is rather questionable, though, but it's all holding for now. The mold lines are another issue. I should have checked more carefully before I started, but these aren't for much beyond my own grins and giggles. I can forgive a few mold lines. After getting the tentacles nice and attached, I pondered for a bit and ended up choosing the Twilight Colors triad (another favorite) for the backs. I chose the Rosy Flesh triad for the underside of the tentacles, and the Bone Colors Triad for the hooks on the suckers. And that's about it. Thanks for stopping by!
  23. So, with my shelf of shame finally cleared I thought I would introduce the remaining duelist to some of my friends. I don't have many unpainted dwarves left thus including the three Dwarven Bones (having primed six)...Ugh I know Bones right. (One reason I don't like bones is that I feel I have to try and paint them better because of the obscure crispness of the mold.) Anyways when I primed them told myself I don't want to see no "Orange Hair" and the next thing I know is I'm varnishing, no, what, wait, OMG orange hair!
  24. To celebrate the ongoing Reaper Miniatures: Bones 6 Kickstarter, I decided to paint nothing but Bones while it runs. Here are the current results (though there's a lot more that got a few colors and were set aside) The Catoblepas: The Hydra: The Greater Basilisk: Cockatrices: The Plague Twins: Patchwork Golems: 'Folk Wizards: Feral Vampire: KOBZAR SOLOVEIKO, NIGHTINGALE BARD Shroomie The Bones 6 Promo Goblin:
