  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Promised thing, thing due. 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. I've found an inspiring picture of a dusky sunset in the desert for the background.
  6. 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.
  7. "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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. Hi everyone, here are two Reaper 03277 Hyena. These Dark Heaven Legends models were sculpted by Jason Wiebe.
  11. 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.
  12. Hi everyone, here are pictures of the diorama I made for the forum contest. As I mention in my entry post, this Dungeon Dwellers Diorama is my first 3D printed project. I created this interactive base to display Reaper Miniatures models; 07002 Baran Blacktree the Veteran Warrior, 07004 Stitch Thimbletoe the Halfling Thief, 07008 Luwin Phost the Wizard and 07012 Caerindra Thistlemoor the Fighter all sculpted by Bobby Jackson, along with 02712 Eyebeast sculpted by Julie Guthrie and 03017 Charnel Grub sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I designed the dungeon model and printed it myself. The dungeon wall, pillar, door, the crate, the barrel and the chandelier are all 3D printed. The torch is from Reaper’s 02638 Adventuring Accessories sculpted by Sandra Garrity. The extra eyestalks on the Eyebeast are from Reaper’s 03440 Creature Components II. I used Reaper’s MSP acrylics, Citadel inks, Vallejo Matt Varnish. The four adventurers base are imbedded in the display diorama and they are removable. Last, there are two small magnets under the Charnel Grub and in the wall, so the models, except for the Eyebeast, can be removed and utilized for game play. Your comments and critiques are very welcome. I hope you enjoy it.
  13. Good day everyone, here are a few pictures of the 03017, Charnel Grub aka Carrion Cralwer I painted for the diorama I recently finished. This metal Dark Heaven Legends model was sculpted by Jason Wiebe and is also avalable in Bones under SKU # 77226.
  14. Hi everyone, I recently had the pleasure of realizing that I inadvertently bought the same Gnoll model twice. So, I decided to convert two of them to create a little variety in my hunting party. Read the text under each picture to have more detail. This post was purposely written as a guide for any who would like to try their hands at converting Reaper Bones model or any other models. I used two 77236 Bloodmane the Gnoll Warrior sculpted by Tre Manor, 77235 Toghra the Gnoll Leader sculpted by Jason Wiebe and 14056 Weapon Pack 1 sculpted by Tim Kaufman. I first separated the dagger handle from the body. Just a simple notch did the trick. I then cut the trunk along the belt. Again, on the other side of the model, I cut the body following the belt as a guide. I have this hollow feeling in my stomach... Same thing for Toghra, cut the body along the belt line. I drilled a hole in Toghra’s lower section and cut a small nail to pin the two parts together. I drilled a hole in Bloodmane’s upper body section and tested the pin in. I glued the pin in the leg part. I’m using Gorilla Super Glue. I then removed the handaxe cutting the handle just above the fist. I keep it for later use. The tricky part is to drill a hole in straight line through the fist. I had to use a small drill bit, smaller than the new weapon handle not to tear the plastic. I used a slightly bigger drill bit to get the hole a little larger. After cleaning the mold line on the new weapon, I cut the handle in halves in order to keep the pommel intact. I had to use a file to reduce the diameter of the handle. Also, I removed two spikes from the shield to alter its aspect from the one the other Gnoll Worrior is wearing. Finally, I’m using a piece of wooden stick to adjust the posture of the model on its base. I often use this simple trick to level my models. I use super glue to fix the parts together. I’m using 40mm round base for the Gnoll. These models are large and even if there in game space size is 25mm, I personally prefer larger base to have more room for decoration. That’s it, I’ll need to fill the gap above the belt and along the shoulder. I’ll also be using Greenstuff to fill the gap and complete the base before cleaning everything with soft soap and water prior to painting. I added some notches on the cutting edge of the original Gnoll’s plastic axe. I’ll be using it as a battlefield wreck weapon to decorate the base.
  15. 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
  16. ******EDIT : Jump to Show-Off thread Everyone, meet Viridius. He's a hefty boi. No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see. I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look. Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him. So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before. One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work. The question is, what to do? Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course) Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape. The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled. I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water. I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business. So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history) I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.
  17. Good evening everyone, here's my latest achievement, Reaper's giant lycanthrope rodent. I painted this feral hybrid for an upcoming D&D session. It's a charming classical setting. The players get to clean the city sewers infested with filthy wererats and their dire rat pets. I made up the stats for this specific model. He's going to be the leader of the group, Brattus the Hill Giant Wererat. Reaper Miniatures 77292, Giant Wererat sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Painted up with Reaper's MSP acrylic paint and mounted on a 50mm round base. Have a good weekend!
  18. Formorian Giant aka The Great Mutato! (Did they spell Fomorian wrong on purpose? Fomorians being monstrous, supernatural creatures from the underworld of Irish mythology, much like the Jotun frost giants of Norse) From Bones 3 core set, this Chaos mutant thingy takes the medal for overtraining half of his body. I imagine his (her?) family tree is a straight line. 77416 Formorian Giant Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015, Core set Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Bonesium PVC. 50mm round lipped base available from reapermini.com
  19. From the fourth Bones kickstarter (no, I have not received my shipment yet, not even a shipping notice). This minis was sold online and given as a freebie if you ordered for more than USD 40 from the Reaper site in February this year. When I ordered it I was not aware that this mini also is in the kickstarter. The January freebie owlbear was not a KS mini, so I assumed the Febuary one would be seperate too. So I will be getting another of this mini with the KS shipment. So anyway..."Bones Black". a darker grey, much harder, less unbreakable, and heavier material than the regular "Bonesium" Bones material. This new material was a bit of a surprise when announced not too long ago, as there was no mention of it in the Kickstarter. They have gone and produced many of the kickstarter minis in this new material (as in all the expansions, but not the core set). I understand that this material requires a different type of mould which is more expensive to make and maintain, so the Bones Black minis will be slightly more expensive at retail than comparable regular Bones. Reaper is on record stating that they chose the name as it sounded cool. The minis are not actually black, just dark grey. My first impressions of the material is that it is actually quite similar -but not identical- to both Restic and the newer Boardgame plastic such as used in HATE. It is very hard and diffcult to cut or bend when at room temperature. I suspect there is ABS in the PVC mix here. However, it still responds well to heat (near-boiling water) and goes rubbery soft and reposable just like other PVC minis. When soft, it is comparatively easy to slice with a scalpel hobby knife. Just like Restic, it needs a little time for super glue to grab, and when it does, it grabs firmly. It is easy to drill, and what little mould lines there were came off easily enough with said knife. Not quite as easy as polystyrene, but much easier than original Bones. They could actually be scraped, which does not work at all with regular Bones. The troll came assembled, and needed gap filling. Reaper has also addressed this issue, stating that the new material has slightly different tolerances and shrinkage than the original Bones. They have been adjusting the connection points to compensate to avoid such gaps going forward. At any rate, my impressions of the Bones Black material are mostly favorable. The biggest con would be that is seems slightly more brittle than the original Bones (that can be thrown around without taking damage), but I have not had any issues with neither this Troll or the Owlbear, so I can't really say. When the KS arrives I will be able to look at many more minis in this material, so we shall see whether this will be any issue. The quality of the details do seem to be rather better than earlier Bones, and this is the reason Reaper has introduced the material in the first place. Again, the smaller minis from the KS will be the proof of the pudding. Should have lit it better... And it is BIG! Actually as tall as the Storm Giant, and larger then the new GW Rockgut Troggoths (aka stone trolls) A quick and sloppy paint job. I started with a black undercoat, and painted the whole piece with a very dark blue. Then I drybrushed the trunk of the body with three different purples, with red on the stomach and chest. I drybrushed the arms and head with Vallejo Nocturna Shadow and ditto Cold Flesh, the belt and loincloth also in Shadow, with Deep Forest Skin for highlights, mixed a bit on my palette for a couple of shades highlighting. The claws and nails were also done in the greens. The leg of cured meat or large pouch (you choose) in browns. The crystals and eyes I did in Scalecolor Tesla Blue and Carribean Blue with Reaper Aircraft Grey highlight. This was a bit sloppy as seen in the photos. Teeth in Aircraft Grey. Base as usual, and it turns out my new Vallejo Black is really glossy. All in all the mini took less than an hour to paint. 44002 Rock Troll Reaper Miniatures, Bones 4 KS Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Bones Black 60mm base Will be available from reapermini.com at some point in the future when it goes on general retail release.
  20. Just a random mini this time, the Stone Giant from the first expansion of the second Bones kickstarter from 2013. Stone Giants are the smallest of the giants, but still much larger than Conan. And have mothers milk that also can be used as spackle. 77336: Stone Giant sculpted by Jason Wiebe from the Reaper Bones 2 kickstarter Made in Bonesium PVC 50mm base
  21. The Celestial Stag from Reaper Miniatures (03907). I painted this for a character in a DnD game that has a habit of shifting into a stag. I'm quite happy with the base.
  22. The first painted mini of the year! I really love this sculpt. My favorite part by far is the comb over :D I did a poor job of cleaning the miniature before priming and starting to paint it (like always), so there's a bit of grain on the axe and other irregularities. But nothing to harmful.
  23. This one has been standing around, based in one form or another since the Bones 1 kickstarter back in 2013 or whenever it actually delivered. One of the few KS1 Undead Bones I had not painted yet. I had originally based it on a square movement tray thinking to make it as some sort of skeleton unit for Kings of War, but for some reason that no longer appealed to me when I dusted it off this time. It had actual cobwebs on. I finally settled on a bespoke 125mm by 90mm oval 3D printed base, and slapped some paint on it to get it done. lots of pics below
  24. So depending on how much you pay attention to memes, you may be aware of one very popular one called "Somebody toucha my spaghet!" I couldn't tell you why that's what popped into my head back in October when @ladystorm first posted about her contest, but I tend to just accept that my brain comes up with really dumb ideas and just have fun with it. So, I present to you: Somebody toucha my spaghyeti! I had a TON of fun painting this guy! The kid (who toucha his spaghyeti) came from 03233: Townsfolk X: Children, sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I modified the stick in his hand into a fork with greenstuff. The yeti, of course, is 77434: Yeti Chieftan, sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I sculpted the bowl of spaghetti with Sculpey. I hope y'all like him!
  25. Good day everyone, I've been busy working recently but I managed to paint a little. Here are pictures of the 77434, Yeti Chieftain sculpted by Jason Wiebe and 80072, Antarctic Explorer sculpted by James Van Schaik that I painted for LadyStorm's Winter Contest. Click this link for more picture of W. Smith the Antarctic Explorer. Fooling around during the photo session, Yeti throwing snow balls. Yeti making angels in the snow. Yeti singning opera in W. Smith ears. I've used transparent plastic blisters to create the piece of ice in which the Yeti is trapped. The synthetic snow is Army Painter Battlefields BF4103 snow.
