  1. He of the Gurgling Belly! The Famished Giant! The Gluttonous Prince! He of the Single Eye! The Horned Trampler! Monstrum horrendum, informe, ingens! He is a big beefy boy. It's difficult to get him all in one shot! Here are a few representative close-ups, and a couple of full shots, ish. More partials: I tried something new and basecoated him in a GW green contrast (much of which is still the hair and beard) and painted Caucasian
  2. It's been some time since I last posted here, but I recently got and painted this WizKid beholder! Comment, criticisms and advice will be gratefully received! The mini in the background I am not quite ready to post as I have not based it properly yet!
  3. I had a burst of mini painting and finished a bunch of minis this month - my first time painting I think since December 2020? Terraincrate (WIP) Crystal Peaks Campsite Peaceful Park Monster (WIP) Bones Pygmy Mammoth (WIP) with toddler Nolzurs Treant (WIP) Bones graveyard terrain (WIP) Bones High Rollers (WIP) Not all of these have been sealed, some have not had matte coats yet. The "fire" from the Crystal Peaks set got lost during priming. Links to come when not in my phone. Surprised myself with t
  4. The conclusion of this https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/90309-ashana-female-genie-44012-or-the-reversal-of-fortune/ and this https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/95842-nolzurs-efreeti-and-zayafid-60154-the-reversal-of-fortune-part-2/ ...But! While Ahmad had been stripped of his wealth by his enemies, and his wives scattered, and he himself cast to the utmost depths of the sea, even the efreet conjured against him could not make his wives less faithful or kind, nor had they forgotten what they had learned. Straightaway they endeavored to find
  5. A sequel of sorts to this story here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/90309-ashana-female-genie-44012-or-the-reversal-of-fortune/ ...But while Ahmad rose in prominence through his wealth and his wisdom in buying and selling, and gained favor with the people through his generosity in alms, Zayafid the sorceror-prince in his perfumed garden became envious of his elevated status. "Is it not proper that I, who have worked hard all my life and studied abstruse arts lost since the time of Sulimein, should be exalted above this beggar, who got all he has from luc
  6. Lots of pics here, a story's worth. Turnaround pics in spoiler areas. You should imagine Ennio Morricone playing the soundtrack, slow-paced to start with. Diegetic horse noises, hooves plodding. Scraping, dragging sound. A glow of a cigarillo and a long inhale as we slowly zoom in on the horse's master. The smoke exhales out of his nostrils, and the camera pans down to show it jetting from multiple holes in the Revenant's torso as well. The rendezvous at hand, the Revenant knocks on the coffin o
  7. I decided to do the big treant today to have something that I could do quickly. Here's today in a few pics. They got a bit out of order. Green beard, orange mushrooms, black + browning shadows, brown + light brown in highlights. not sure what more I'll do. May not get to paint until the weekend.
  8. My cousin came over to paint a Bones mini I had laying around to be his new (temporary?) character, as he was slain at the end of the last session. I decided to pull out the Nolzur’s Grick pack to paint something easy while half entertaining him. I just used two colors so far, Vallejo Green Brown for the belly and sucker “underside” of its face tentacles, and Reaper Troll Hide, both thinned 1:1 with Vallejo Thinner Medium, and a damp brush. Both colors went onto the smaller Grick like butter, and produced a wonderfully highlighted and shaded effect on their own. Sadly I go
  9. So i've got that trio of spiders from nolzur's. They do not come with sculpted bases - unlike most of the nolzur's line. This isn't a huge issue, except that these suckers have a bunch of tiny spindly legs. I am worried about getting a good hold. So I have a few questions: 1: how to fasten these guys to a base? Just glue the legs and hope, or pin them through the body like a flightstand? 2: how to sculpt/or assemble, suitable bases to compliment their spindly nature and ensure a better hold. 3: how to attach the spider in a way that
  10. The Froghemoth first appeared as part of an extraterrestrial biome in "Expedition to the Barrier Peaks" if memory serves, so a spacefuture setting is, if anything, returning it to its roots. Twisted, coiling, poisonous roots, in the fungal swamps of a jungle hellworld such as Retro-Venus! I went for an unwholesome, etiolated color scheme--which blends in pretty well with the rest of the terrain. More angles: This is a big miniature! Here it is towering over some tentacle-faced Cult Beasts from Midlam. They are about hound-sized in scale. The deep scars and tatters
  11. Hi all! With the year nearly at its end, this seemed like a great time to share a comparison project to reflect on this past year's growth. A little over a year ago a painted up my first Beholder, and last month I painted another. I was particularly proud of the first so it's interesting to see a side-by-side a year apart. More Below the Spoiler: It's always fun to compare two similar models that have been painted with time in between. I'm always impressed by how much I can grow in this hobby in such a short amount of time. I only painted my first
  12. Brothers Roberto (03561) and Louis IV (02087) are excellent sculpts suitable for multiple time periods. I've painted a couple of Nuns With Guns and a couple of priests, but not a bishop or a cardinal! "Your Exellency, I apologize for the short notice. It's worse than we had thought." "You are forgiven, Bishop. Is it the old Priory at St. Wulfstan's?" "Indeed. The Creature has at last gotten loose from the bindings put down in 947 and broken through the 16th-century salt rings." "God in Heaven. I had prayed those wards would outlast me. We knew this day would come." "Mercifu
  13. Extraplanar beings are diverse. I've painted several red fiends, and some green, blue, and purple spirits. When I came across this sculpt in the FLGS, I decided to try a new unnatural complexion for this devilish-looking entity, without any red whatsoever. It was fun! Only regret is that there were some great exposed back muscles that are harder to see now because I decided he needed wings (graciously donated by 039988, Bomber Sophie). More angles: The garment was a good opportunity for gradients, but I can't help but feel there was a missed opportunity fo
  14. Tried to paint the Griffon to look like Buckbeak (a hippogriff I could not locate) for a friend’s HP diorama.
  15. Hi folks. I've got plenty of minis painted from the last two years to slowly share with you all. Here we have the D&D Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures Human Druid 73390. I was in need of a Firbolg Monk for my party, and Nolzur's had yet to release any of their firbolg models. Since the character would be traversing a frigid wasteland, I also wanted to find a character who was properly clothed - no sleeveless/shirtless monks for me. I settled on this character because he was properly rangery and most importantly - bearded. I chopped off his sword and the antlers on his back, g
  16. Slaad from Nolzur's. Blue and Green painted in their normal colors; Death and Gray panted in red and black. Not just for fantasy; also make good spacemonsters and post-apocalyptic mutant/invaders, as shown here.
  17. So, I recently purchased the "Nolzur's Marvelous Pigments Monsters Paint Set". Came with a bunch of Army Painter washes and paints and yadda yadda yadda... But it also came with this neat Owlbear mini, which is what I have to share with you guys today! First eyes I ever successfully painted. But in my defense, I'd only ever tried on minis with smallish eyes, which was NOT the brightest idea I'd ever had. The left eye turned out really good in my opinion, but the right one was a bit messy. I also need to do so me touch-up work on the base. I got a bit careles
  18. Frog-folk are always irresistible, and tiny poison-arrow frog-folk even more so. These are from a Nolzur's 3-pack. One had some kind of horns on its head I didn't fancy, so I trimmed those off. Look at these big-headed little savages! More angles: But I know you're all here for the Grenadier! Afraid I had to get this Marsh Dragon from Mirliton, but I couldn't resist. It's so salamander-like, with goggling newt eyes and axolotl gills, and that lovely rounded snout. We're really jaded by fancy dragons after years of fantasy art. Even a low-level dr
  19. This was an excellent opportunity to practice some effects for marble. Also, a tip for anyone else working on this mini: if you have a dental tool or other means of prying, the water comes right out. I painted shiny metallic fish on the undersurface of the water and their shadows on the fountain. The wash on the water kind of obscures it though; next time maybe I'll put the blue-green tint on the fountain's bowl itself and leave the water clear. AP Bright Gold, some Reaper sample blue-green, and some Nihilakh Oxide got the statue taken care of. A Reaper sample of almost-flesh-tone-pink was
  20. It was getting along for sundown when the turtle moseyed into town. (click for turnaround) Now, round these parts, we don't ask questions about a man's past. But every man's got a past, and sometimes the past got a long shadow. (Special guest appearances by Bombshell's Raferu-san and some modified Troglodytes.) I will glue a grommet top hat to anything, anything. Something about the poncho made me think of old Spaghetti westerns, and things snowballed from there. Hope you enjoy!
  21. Finished my beholder. It's a little over exposed after stacking the photos. I'm too lazy to take new pictures. He was fun to paint! i'm happy with how he came out, Need to keep pushing myself though. MVI_0102.MOV
  22. "Great Gods! I'd rather be A cultist suckled in a creed outworn Could I but see Cthulhu rising from the sea or hear old Dagon blow his wreathed horn." (With apologies to William Wordsworth) A desolate piece of grey coast on a very particular day in November. The hour is right. The signs are right. The stars are right. A pulse of sickly green light, far out to sea. An hour passes, then two. It takes even one of the High Priest's blood a while to ascend from the crushing black depths. Then, a boiling. A bubbling and a heaving of the waters. With a great splash, v
  23. I've had Garzuhl, the Mantis Man Ranger, painted up since 2015 or so, and just knew she was going to be the core of an insectile faction at some point. Then Nolzur's put out some Thri-Keen, and Reaper's Umber Hulk Burrowing Behemoth came out, and things fell into place. From the sweltering hive-cities of Mercury Terminus to the windswept ice-plains of Ganymede, the Kithkthix (for that is as close to their name as we can pronounce without pheromone glands) dig in and build their mounds anywhere they can get a foothold. Their societies are termite-like, with castes for every position. Intens
  24. Between my Weird West game, a pirate one-shot I got talked into planning, and some future plans, I've no shortage of uses for these cannon from Nolzur's. One package is a pair of naval long guns that might be 12-pounders or maybe bigger calibers. The carriage isn't right for Civil War land use, but I don't care and neither will my players if they get the chance to capture a cannon. Used @HolkDiggity's excellent advice to grunge them up with Typhus Corrosion and then rusted one of them up further. They are smoother out of the box. And then there's this magnificent bombard. Modelled after t
