  1. Statuesque Miniatures Ok. We're all set. The Kickstarter launches on Tuesday! It's not a massively long campaign, so tell everyone! Your friends, your family, even your enemies - maybe they just need tiny metal toys in their lives and will forever more be much better people! You'll be able to grab the full set of miniatures or choose from smaller sets in any combination. There will also be a very limited number of hand-finished (by me) sets just like the miniatures in the photos. The perfect labour-free gift for yourself or someone you love. Awwww.

    Metal Bases?

    So I used to paint a ton, but that was maybe 10 years ago. I just started getting back into the hobby and I've run into an issue. Reaper used to make metal bases that were recessed. I know they sold them in square, maybe 1" or so. I'm pretty confident that they also sold them in round, but I'm not 100% on that. Now I've been working on a mini project and the base that comes with the figure is abysmal. I was really hoping I could just clip the fig off the existing base and with the help of a little green stuff put it on a new metal base. I really prefer the feel and weight that a metal base would add to the figure. It appears now that Reaper isn't selling those bases anymore. Does anyone know where I could either find some old inventory and pick up a handful of them, or does anyone know of another source that makes a similar product?

    Small Red Dragon

    I Don't have much to go on with this dragon. its another one that has been sitting half finished on my shelf forever. the bottom has some script on the bottom that looks like FWS and an 8. other than that I don't have any clue where it comes from. but I finally dusted the mini off, freshened up the red (It was becoming a pink dragon) and decided to display it here. hope everyone enjoys!

    Ollie the Dragon mascot

    What else to finish off the month of January but another dragon from my shelf of shame? This is Ollie. Ollie is from Impact miniatures and is supposed to be a mascot for one of the bloodbowl teams. Tom Acquired the license to produce him and I got a copy. I used him to test a number of different red effects and styles while working on another, bigger dragon. The skills may not have panned out like I wanted but Ollie still came out pretty well and deserved to be finished and shown off. Pictures are still with a phone camera but at least I got to my light box! So without further ado:

    Iron Dwarf (Logrim, Dwarf Captain)

    I bought this fig a long time ago, with a ton of ideas and options for what to do with him. Although I'm definitely on Team Cap, I decided to go with an Iron Man look. I was really happy with how he turned out, especially the sword and faceplate. I'm considering going back and adding a little bit more gold in a few spots, especially in the back area, but for now I'm satisfied. Critiques and advice are always welcome! Thanks in advance!

    Valana, Forgemaiden Sergeant 14524

    Used my extra hour from Daylight Savings Time on Sunday to paint this awesome dwarf. I think I painted her dress 3 different times before I got to the yellow and green combo, and am really happy with how it turned out. I had a rough time with her face though. Her mouth and cheeks seem to indicate shouting orders, but I couldn't get her eyes to express that kind of command. I went over it so many times that I felt like I was losing details, so I just stopped at a point that looked "good enough". I still really like her overall, and had a lot of fun painting her. Critiques and advice are always welcome! Thanks in advance!

    Kragmarr Pummeler 14648

    This was a super fun fig to paint! I'm not really happy with the eyes, and I think I might go back and add a black eye or a bruise at some point. I think that would add some character, as well as cover up the mediocre job. Otherwise, I am really happy with the rest of him. Comments and critiques are welcome as always, thanks in advance!

    Ursula Silverbraid 03293

    I got a ton of painting in this weekend, and was most happy with this little dwarven lady. She was a lot of fun to paint, and had lots of cool little details on her. I might go back and do something extra to her ax some day, but for now I'm happy with how she turned out. Comments and critiques are welcome! Thanks in advance!

    10003 Dragons don't Share

    Meet my planned project for this year's annual contest. The original Dragons Don't Share. Most of it anyway. This has been sitting on my shelf for years because, while I love most of the sculpt, the wings have always bothered me. So 2 years ago while at Reapercon, I traded some of my melt for a new set of wings. Thenimbus the model sat for another 2 years while I worked up the guts to start drilling sculpting and painting on one of the crown jewels of my collection. Well I finally worked up the nerve and I'm starting the project. The new wings are from Ebonwrath and I think they are a real improvement. I am still deciding on whether to add to the base or to just mount it as is in a plinth. But I suppose I will make that decision later. Anyway, here is the conversion, pre greenstuff to show off the pinning and where the gaps are. Comment and critique alway welcome.

    The Future of Metal

    Not really sure where to put this question but this seems as good as any place. Is reaper done making metal minis? I own well over 100 legendary and warlord mini's as all as most of the old dragons all in pewter and much prefer pewter to the bones line. I'm mostly interested in the beautiful new dragons that reapers been turning out, and will be with the next bones 4

    Dark Elf Ranger Flat

    This is another variant of Reaper's Elf Ranger Flat. In this case a Dark Elf. Since I had no idea what a dark elf was, I had to do some research. Basically, they're... dark. Purples, blacks, reds, etc. I suppose there's other variants. I added the nocked arrow using brass rod, putty flights and head. A small amount of carving was involved. Painted in Reaper acrylics. Qs and Cs welcomed. Glen

    Torg, Orc Stalker 14602

    The weather is basically perfect, so I have been outside painting and writing D&D adventures while enjoying the sunshine! I got this bad dude finished a little bit ago and I am pretty proud of how he turned out. I will probably go back and touch a few things up later on, but right now I would appreciate any critiques and advice. Thanks in advance!

    Bronze Dwarves

    Been playing this silly board game with my siblings called Quartz where you all play dwarven miners who mine for valuable gems. The day marker that comes with the game is just a lame little yellow piece of wood, so I set out to find something better to replace it. Ended up settling on the pack mule with plans to paint it gold. Then for no reason whatsoever it occurred to me that maybe it would be fun for each player to have their own little dwarf character that does absolutely nothing in the game itself. So I added pretty much every Dwarf that Reaper sells to my cart as well. My goal was to paint the pack mule with Vallejo liquid gold and all the dwarves with a bronze-like metal paint. Below is the result, and keep in mind I have never painted before... You may notice that two of these are not dwarves. Well I would counter that by telling you that one of them is an undead dwarf brought back to life by the sheer need to mine fancy gems, while the other is a tavern wench who's legs I MAY have chopped off to make her dwarf height. So for all intents and purposes, she is a dwarf. I used Vallejo Liquid Gold on the mule and MSP Dwarven Gold (mixed with varying amounts of MSP Dragon Black) on the dwarves. Also shaded them with MSP Sepia Wash then sealed them up with Vallejo Satin Varnish. Oh and fun fact, if you want to add heft to a 32mm round base a sacagawea coin fits perfectly inside and adds just the right amount of weight. Also threw on a 32mm washer.

    Anubis 02734; Bast 02733

    Here are two of the statues I finished for my Ruined Temple terrain piece. Bast spoilered so it'll be SFW as she's topless. I still need to put another coat of gloss over them, to protect them, but otherwise they're just waiting for the temple to fnish.
  21. I wanted to share this here for those of you not on the social media outlets. My daughter's latest project was the Crazy Cat Lady that I got her for Christmas. She painted the cats first which just amazed me because some of the detail she put on them was awesome. Once she was done and I could not get her to touch up anything else she wanted to base. I decided she would do it all except the super glue. So away she went with craft glue and basing materials. She has a few more things I got her for Christmas and then birthday is in less than two weeks and I have a couple more minis for then too. Should be a busy year if actually sit down and paint.
  22. <<<MOD>>> Link to the Live Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dgsgames/eclipse-sisterhood-freeblades-fantasy-miniatures?ref=category_newest From DGS Games, "We will launch the Eclipse Sisterhood kickstarter campaign on the afternoon of February 14th 2017. This project will produce the six core models of the faction: leader, caster, two heroes and two followers. And as many stretches as our fans help us reach! For the Traazorites, that was four models. Let's show the Empire these fierce women can do even better!"

    Santa's Helpers (01590)

    Even though I got these during last year's 12 Days of Reaper, I only just got around to painting them! I tried an experiment with these; painting them first with special Chrome spray paint, and then using Citadel gemstone transparent paints on them: Spiritstone Red, Soulstone Blue, and Waystone Green, in an attempt to given them that lacquered mirror look that real ornaments have. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. In the second photo, they are shown with Copplestone's "Lovely Assistant" to give a sense of scale with a normal sized human figure.
  24. I'm a noob (about 5-6 weeks of painting) but am happy with this guy and his rusty armor! Would love some C & C from anyone though!
  25. For your perusal, Rasia w/ Spiked Chain and Dain Deepaxe: Dain was the last mini I was able to paint before packing up about three years or so ago, and Rasia represents my return to the hobby, as seen in this WIP thread. The latter suffered some paint loss on her left leg upon removal from the mounting base, visible here before being patched up. Rasia was also an experiment with the Red Hair triad. Overall, I’m pleased with the results. While I’m still a beginner, these two are a far cry from some of my early attempts.
