  1. Hello everyone, the madness goes on. On todays menu we have 44105, Giant Maggots. These Bones Black models were sculpted by Kevin Williams. I did a 09282, maggot white and a 09039, pure white glazing on them to give them a transparent and organic aspect.
  2. From Bones 3: Vegepygmies The Children of the Forest. Now, where has that three eyed raven gotten to? At last, vegetables that fight back! Take that you Vile Weeds! 77513 Vegepygmies from the Bones 3 Stoneskull expansion Reaper Miniatures 2016 Sculpted by Kevin Williams Classic Bones 20mm bases
  3. his one is actually from the Fan Favorites expansion and not from the Lost Valley expansion, but still...Giant Insect? Yeah, that's your Lost Valley right there. So I put it in with the rest. To see the back bit, click the thingy:
  4. These are two copies of the Reaper Bones Large Earth Elemental 77185, sculpted by Kevin Williams. I saw someone, I can’t recall who, paint up, it might have been one of these, like cooling lava which I thought was lovely, so I wanted to give it a try. I painted the lava version very quickly, in a few sessions: A layer of butter-yellow intensified with yellow glazing, then laying on pure black paint rather thickly, then some washes of Quinacridone Magenta and some fiddling with that and yellow on the gems. The rock version I painted v-e-r-y slowly, in many layers over time, often with whatever paint was left on my palette from other paintings. I’m not sure when I started it, but since I haven’t painted any minis at all for the last year, it’s been some time. I thought it interesting how very different a sculpt can look depending on how you paint it.
  5. This is a model that has been waiting patiently since Bones 3. I have been thinking about how to make it look maggotlike, as it more than anything reminds me of wasp larvae or maggots. You know, these ones: I wanted to use a short videoclip here, but the constant wiggling gives me the screaming willies! So the other day I tried a quick yellow-grey-bonewhite scheme. It turned out...not quite what I was going for. So I slathered the thing in gloss varnish to give it the shiny "a bit translucent" glass like look. It turned out looking slimy instead. Btw wasp larvae are not slimy or wet to the touch at all. Also, lots of wild animals such as squirrels, possums and birds really like the taste of those juicy wasp larvae, which probably is the main evolutionary reason that wasps and hornets are so very aggressive, and use the Attack! Attack! Attack! When in doubt, attack again!" strategy to welcome anyone close to a nest. The white in the photo is a bit washed out and the yellow and grey detail in the folds of the flesh are not showing properly. The gloss is overpowering most of it anyway. Live and learn. I am thinking maybe there are no quick-fixes for the effect I would like, and that I might need to go full non metallic metal-extreme white highlight technique to make the glass-like look I am after. Which is really time-consuming. So on the other hand, this took significantly less than a hour or so to paint in between other things. It will do the job. The paint job is not only Fast, but also Sloppy. Zoomed-in photos are without mercy. Reaper calls this model "Carrion Worm". Worm? Worm? It has legs for crying out loud! ahem... from the Collinsdictionary.com: Definition of 'worm' 1. COUNTABLE NOUN A worm is a small animal with a long thin body, no bones and no legs. (The astute reader will notice how I like a complete hippocrite ignore the "small" in the definition but make a big issue out of the "no legs" bit.) ....so, maybe a we shall call it a caterpillar instead? I have named this one Heim-Liche. Anyway, what sort of carrion exactly does it dine on that lets it grow to such a size? And presumably at some point it will go in to a chrysalis. What might it eventually metamorphose into? Mothra? 77541 Carrion Worm Bones 3, Graveyard Expansion, 2015 Reaper Miniatures Sculpted by Kevin Williams Made in Bonesium PVC 60mm base available from reapermini.com This model was painted on or around the 7th of April.
  6. While so many of y'all were out Denton way, having a grand old fooforaw at Reapercon, I decided to go ahead and paint a bit, too. Only finished two things, really; here's one. Very much "done now" quality. Had a little fun with color, nothing special.
  7. This is going to be one of the most ambitious projects I've ever attempted, so I thought making a WIP thread would be a good idea. If everything goes well, I plan to enter this beastie at ReaperCon this year, so fingers crossed! This is an idea I've had bouncing around in my head for awhile, and started gathering materials for it last year. My plan is to take this lovely critter: and rather than using the shipwreck as a base, use half of one of these: and paint the Kraken to look all spacey and such. So! To that end, I now have one of these! I'll just be using the top half for the base, though: Which means that the bottom hemisphere is available for...testing. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  8. Like if it was not enough, a hideous green slime and a bright ochre jelly ooze down the walls of the cave where you have established camp for the night. Their many pulsating excrescences increases their disgusting infectious aspect. They both clearly avoid the light radiating from your improvised campfire, but still the yellow one slowly crawls towards you. The greenish atrocity is only lifting itself in a misshapen column that whips the air without precise direction. You understand the threat while moving closer to you, the amoeba jelly dissolve an empty leather quiver that you left on the ground. Here are the 77306, Translucent Slimes Dark Heaven Bones sculpted by Kevin Williams. I painted them using only yellow and green ink.
  9. 77127, Vermin Beetles Dark Heaven Bones sculpted by Kevin Williams painted as Giant Fire Beetles.
  10. As you walk down the catacomb, two huge nightmare blue spiders sneak out from holes in the crumbled walls... 77126, Vermin Spiders Dark Heaven Bones sculpted by Kevin Williams.
  11. Painted this guy up real quick for a game I'm playing in. This was my first real use of the airbrush and I had a few flubs with the blending but overall I'm good with the results.
  12. The Dragon Hatchling sculpts are cute, but the Bones casts are terrible. Due to this I didn't try to clean them up well and just put them on new bases. Either way it is two more models off the bench and painted to an acceptable toy box level...and so what if I painted the geen one red and the black one green! btw I touched up the splotchy black base rims after I took this picture. Comments encouraged, Mike
  13. 77185: Large Earth Elemental Kevin Williams This guy has been awaiting proper completion for about a year. Every time I had grey paint left over, I added it to him. I found him a struggle to complete because of his size and because of all the mold lines. Every time I turned him around I found more that I missed when prepping him. I finally gave up on trimming them and just gave him a proper base and a finished paint job. It's still a speed paint, but at least he's done and ready for use in my D&D game. Only 30 projects left on my shelf of shame!
  14. Reaper Miniatures 03477, Brain Horror. Dark Heaven Legends model sculpted by Kevin Williams. This Aberration can also be found in the 10031, Dungeon Horrors Box Set. I used transparent blister plastic and Mod Podge to create the drool. I also covered the brain with two layers of Mod Podge to give it a slimy aspect. The stalagmites and base were carved out of green stuff to represent an oozing cave.
  15. Super quick paint job for these guys... My son wanted them for the Dragon Rampant army I'm painting him for Christmas, and I've still got a lot more to do so I everything I do in the next while is likely to be a bit rushed. Base coat was Vallejo Model Air, Armour Brown, then drybrushed heavily with Desert Stone, lightly with Dirty Bone, then a little more heavily again with Olive Drab. The Olive Drab doesn't really show up in the picture but it's pretty decent in person - not overpowering, just enough to make them look more like old trees.
  16. I really like these elementals' pose and sculpting. So much more imposing and dynamic compared to most other elementals I have seen. Picking flowers... There are many more pictures at my blog Water Elemental was done as follows: first, an undercoat of clear matte varnish. This is key! I used Army Painter Anti Shine spray. Then some vallejo blue ink and when dry several light drybrushings with progressively lighter shades of pale blue up to almost pure white. Then some ancient citadel turquoise glaze here and there, all topped off with gloss varnish. I did some color shade variations all over this one, but I think maybe the gloss varnish fuffs it up so this can't really be seen in the pictures. Fire Elemental was done as follows: First the undercoat of clear matte varnish. Then several abortive attempts with yellow ink which did just not work until I abandoned that idea and undercoated it with three coats of opaque white. After that successive layers of heavy to light drybrush with bright yello - golden yellow -dark pink - dark red brown and finally black. It is important to let the colours dry a bit between coats to avoid tearing off the layer below when drybrushing. Finish with dotting in some blues for the eyes. When painting fire like this, it looks pretty terrible up to the dark red brown layer. Suddenly, it looks pretty sweet indeed. Earth Elemental was done as follows: black undercoart, then heavy drybrushed coat of dark green gray, followed by lighter coats of yellow sand and light grey white. A stone combo that I think works so much better than just shades of grey, grey and grey. I probably should have varied it more with different types and colours of rock represented. but I just could not be bothered as I just wanted it done at this point. I need my Bones 3 shipment to complete the set! When O when will it arrive? Wherefore art thou mine Large Air Elemental? 77311: Large Water Elemental Reaper Bones translucent blue from the second Bones KS unknown sculptor, as it is uncredited in the Reapermini.com listing. 77082: Large Fire Elemental Reaper Bones translucent orange from the first Bones KS sculpted by Julie Guthrie 77185: Large Earth Elemental Reaper Bones from the first Bones KS Sculpted by Kevin Williams all in Bonesium PVC 60mm Reaper display base .
  17. Hi all, I've been reading the forums for a couple months since I've started getting into painting miniatures. Here is my fourth one that I just finished up. Comments welcome!
  18. 03483, Slime sculpted by Kevin Williams. Also available in in 10031, Dungeon Horror Boxed Set.
  19. Finally getting around to posting a couple of pics from the winter exchange. I snapped these right before I boxed it up and sent it out to Kangaroorex. I hope he enjoyed it. This was my first exchange project. It was also my first completed attempt at doing basing for a mini. I just did something fairly basic and I think it turned out okay.
  20. I have more orcs to paint, but I'm gonna switch it up for a bit and do some Spooky Scary Skeletons!
  21. Next up is the Bones Hell Cat. Your typical molten lavacreature with broken crust exterior. In Bones the detail is a bit shallow for my taste, which makes it more difficult for me being a sloppy drybrusher to get a "clean" look to the crusty bits, especially when the topmost black coat was a tad too heavy. Not my finest work, but passable. It certainly looks much better when not magnified like in the pictures... 77327: Hell Cat Reaper Bones KS 2, "Devils" option Sculpted by Kevin Williams Bonesium PVC 40mm base
  22. I did some reorganizing of my painting desk over the weekend and thus finally pulled out the lightbox that my friend gave me for my birthday back in August. So I took a few pictures of Mashaaf (ok, a lot of pictures ) so I thought I should do a show off thread for her. Here is her WIP thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71909-guindyloo-vs-mashaaf-in-5-days/where I painted her in 5 days with a size 0 brush for OneBoot's Purple Cat Challenge. Thank you for scrolling through all of my many, many pictures. There's a few things I would've done differently had I not run out of time, so all comments and criticism are very welcome!
  23. I painted this up a few months ago. I've still been meaning to flatten out the base and paint it but here is everything so far. I had a lot of fun with this one.
  24. No dungeon is complete without some oozey goodness! These two were done using paint thinned into a wash. I just applied several coats, and a layer or two of brush varnish in between. I love the way they came out. My wife said they look like candy. I give you, my purple and grey oozes! CAH
  25. I received this piece today from the Summer Mini Exchange. I apologize for not being 100% sure who sent it (I have a real name but not a screen name), but I can say I LOVE it! The pictures I took are the best I can do with my iPhone, and I am not sure I am really doing this piece justice. Both my wife and I commented on awesome choice of color pallet, and the great blending done throughout. There are subtle blends that are not being captured very well by the camera, but I assure you they are there. I can't wait to have this guy come through a door, and send sheer terror down the spines of my players. Thank you so much for the wonderful job! This will hold a place of honor on my mini's shelf in the living room! CAH
