  1. This minis was a kickstarter exclusive from the Mantic Kings of War second edition campaign in 2014. "Blaine" is a Mantic mascot of sorts. and there has been a version of him in all their own IP kickstarters apart from the vey first Kings of War. So here is him as the Fantasy Tyrant King. A resin special mini, there were some problems with delivery and I heard several backers never got their Blaine for some reason or other. I have not really had any delivery problems to speak of from any of the many Mantic kickstarters I have backed, and I obviosly got my Blaine with my shipment at the time. I used a bespoke 3D printed 25x50mm oval base, In retrospect I probably should have gone with a slightly larger base as it does seem a little small. This picture illustrates the smaller Mantic truscale as opposed to the larger Reaper heroic scale. Tyrant King Blaine on Raptor from the Kings of War second edition kickstarter, 2014 Mantic Entertainment Resin, multipart 25x50mm base Kickstarter exclusive model
  2. Back in 2013 I came across a kickstarter campaign called "Heroes of the Dwarfs" by a small start up company called Oathsworn. The creator sculpted the models himself, and the greens on display were very oldhammery and full of character. I went in for a massive three minis, being a bit cautious at the time, what with this being a new company and all. They delivered in a timely fashion, the minis were great quality, and I have backed 13 out of 14 of Oathsworns campaigns since then. They continue to crank out the good stuff. They are on my short list of trusted creators, A+ will back again. Ingrid Deathseeker is basically your female beardless Trollslayer. I used one of my bespoke 3D printed 25mm round lipped bases for her. Ingrid Deathseeker from the Heroes of the Dwarfs kickstarter, 2013 Oathsworn Miniatures Sculpted by Michael Lovejoy metal, single piece casting 25mm base
  3. Maledrakh

    Maledrakh's 77276 Sea Hag

    From the second Bones kickstarter, the Sea Hag: A very simple but effective paint job. I started with a black undercoat with a heavy-ish light grey zenithal primer on. I slapped some Vallejo Nocturna Natural Flesh on the lower rags and Scale75 Arbuckles Brown on the top rags. Then I sloshed CItadel Athonian Camoshade all over it, drawing off most pooling to avoid those tidemarks. Very light drybrysh with Vallejo Nocturna Cold Flesh when dry. The hair got a coat of Vallejo Nocturna Pale Flesh followed by Army Painter Dark Tone Quickshade Ink. Eyes get a dot of Citadel Wazdakka Red followed by a smaller dot of Citadel Flash Gitz Yellow. Base and done. Even though this mini is billed as a Sea Hag and she does have a slight fishy look about her, I am thinking she will be joining my Ghoul army as some sort of subleader. "Who be this tender morsel? Come to Meg, juicy boy! What a fine fat boy you are!" 77276 Sea Hag Reaper Miniatures, Bones 2 KS 2013 Sculpted by Julie Guthrie Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped base available from reapermini.com
  4. Kangaroorex

    Reaper Phoenix rising 03001

    Just a few more pieces that I completed over the memorial day weekend. The problem with these show offs is I don't usually get to post them until after the thread wraps up... Fun to paint and a really great sculpt, I didn't do the piece justice but I do like how it turned out. It did give me a chance to practice my flame and yellows and reds. Hope you like it too!
  5. Adamantite Golem from the defunct Fantasy skirmish game Chronopia, from the end of the 1990s. Chronopia was produced by Target Games, who also made Warzone, and was in it's day the only company that might have given Games Workshop a run for the money. Not that the games sold anywhere near the levels of the GW games, but the style appealed greatly to fans of Warhammer and Warhammer 40k especially since the miniatures where made in the heroic scale that was comparable to GW minis of the day, Target was very aggressive at marketing towards independent game stores that needed something to offset the dominance of GW building up sales in an area then moving in and sucking up the sales by opening a Games Workshop next to the independent (whereupon shipments from GW to said independent stores suddenly would experience problems with shipping and fulfilment, you know all the stuff that had plausible deniability to mess with the independent and making the customers go to the official GW next door for their new models.) This happened a lot and many indepentent stores were left with the short end of the stick, all over the world. Target came at a time ripe to offer a competing games system and miniatures to these indepentent shops that desperately needed something to fill the void. So the games rapidly caught on and was building it's following when Target Games went down in flames in the year 2000. ...Just when it was getting good, it all went away. Argh! At any rate, they left behind a legacy of lots of great miniatures (and a few bad ones to be honest). I have a few in my collection from back in the day, and I have traded for many more in recent years. Here is the Adamantite Golem, a fearsome warrior construct for the Elven faction. The elves of Chronopia were spiky, and not exactly light side in this game, consorting with demons, riding dragons and taking slaves. Big armoured magical robot thingy with a massive hammer to smite with. I collected Devout (=chaos), Dwarves and Blackblood (orcs etc) player back in the day and never had more than a handful of Elven minis as I simply did not like most of them. This one however, is nice. For some reason I did not get it back then. Adamantite Golem Chronopia, Elves faction, released sometime between 1997-1999 Sculpted by Alex Hunter Metal, two piece casting (main body and backpack) 40mm base For some reaon it reminds me of The Mountain, version 2.0.

    Maledrakh's 77501 Minotaur

    A more greek-inspired Minotaur than most others I have seen. So, bronze and leathers. Theseus channeling Conan. 77501 Minotaur Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015, Stoneskull expansion Sculpted by Chris Lewis Bonesium PVC. 50mm round lipped base available from reapermini.com
  7. Merisiel, Iconic Rogue from the Bones Pathfinder line, and the first Bones kickstarter. Soft bones, soft details pretty much sums it up. So this got a very quick paint job. Nothing to be especially proud of, but here it is. 89009 Merisiel, Iconic Rogue Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012, Pathfinder Iconics subset Sculpted by Patrick Keith Bonesium PVC 25mm bespoke 3D-printed base available from reapermini.com
  8. Maledrakh

    Maledrakh's 77409 Fiara, Elf Heroine

    Thank you @Xiwo Xerase for naming this mini. It is in the reapermini.com shop, turns out it just does not have "elf" as a search term... I thought this elf was female, but no. That is elves for you. In any case, gender really does not matter anyway for most things other than procreation. (edit: ze has swapped gender from metal version to the bones version, and is now sold as "Elf Heroine" in bones and "Vale Swordsman Elven Grunt" in metal.) Some Elf with a sword 77409 Fiara, Elf Heroine Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015, Core set Sculpted by Werner Klocke Bonesium PVC 25mm bespoke 3D-printed base I could not find this one in Bones at reapermini.com so I do not know what it is supposed to be called or what it's code is. Has it been discontinued or is it just an oversight? Was it ever released to retail in Bones? It is available in metal though.

    Maledrakh's 77416 Formorian Giant

    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

    Citrine paints the Ghostbride

    This figure is the Reaper 3718 Ghostbride in metal. I wanted to do some white practice on her, and she is probably my most artsy figure, considering she has a purple base and not some mundane colored ground. I tried to have her be very white, with the white being on top of different base colors, but at the same time have the purple come up from the base. Mostly happy with her. I had planned on having her hair be blond, but the dark hair just popped so nicely against the pale skin. As a bonus, she did see some game time in our last session as the ghost of a young woman killed by her jealous fiance. Her father became a vampire to try to bring her back to life.

    Ctirne paints Wyrd boars

    These are the plastic Wyrd 20620 Wild Boars (Ulix). I picked them for a quick tabletop paint job. Unlike many of the Wyrd plastic minis these where easy to glue together. May they eat many adventurers, but no more druids... One of my early characters, a level one druid, was killed by a wild boar in the very first playing session after she failed her animal handling roll. In the decades since, any time I see see a nasty pig figure I say that is the one that killed my druid. So one of these nasty critters is surely the one!

    Citrine paints Aviriel as a Drow

    I had used a bunch of leftover paint for the Reaper bones version of Aviriel Tellerion (77070), and those colors where more in the "evil spectrum" so I switched her over to being a dark elf. Very happy with how her face turned out, sadly she is looking down so you cannot really see it on the table. It has been a while since I posted, I have had a slump in my desire to paint this spring and I tend to wait until I have a bunch to show off to get the light box out. Avirion here was painted in March.
  14. So this is the bones version of Thain Grimthorn the Dwarf Cleric (77213). I was stuck on painting him for a long time, I had started with a normal skin tone, but it just didn't click for me. Then I had the epiphany that since it was unlikely that someone would pick him as a PC was very low, so I should paint him as an evil dwarf instead. I am much happier with him now. Here I present Thain the evil dwarf:

    Citrine paints Earth Elementals

    Just a quick speed paint to boost my painted numbers. These where painted back in March. The are all pumped up to pound some adventures. I do find it funny the similar stance for being created by 3 different manufacturers.

  16. A while ago (alright a long while ago) a gameshop was going out of business. One of the last things left on the shelves were a series of Artizan Design pulp characters. The price was right and i was planning a Cthulhu game so i purchased a number of their packs. The game fell through and the miniatures sat in the back of my storage cabinet. But in a fit of wanting to paint something modern, I brought them out and gave them a quick paint job in case i developed a need for a crew of 20's era adventurers. I also had a bit of fun with their posing for pictures and got some much needed practice with the camera (Kudos to @Doug Sundseth for his expertise and help) So.... It was 1922, the war was over and the world was in a frenzy of frolicking and excitement but at the edges, darkness was beginning to creep back into the minds of men. a group of scientists were discussing their views of the war in a room containing the private library of Wilhelm von Bruhegier "over here my good fellows, do you see it on the top shelf?" Jacob had spotted a tome of a lost civilization said to be the path to the vaults of that race with treasures untold. the others rushed to look as well! While realizing it could make them rich and support the university for decades, I was also a job for younger men. As there was a curse associated with the vaults, they didn't desire to have their names attached so they carefully provided a map to one of their graduate students and dropped hints to a trusted archeologist and a well heeled patron of 'unique' cultures. They met in the library to discuss what they had learned. A careful investigation of the shelves provided access to the priceless tome! While the men evaluated the book, the archeologist was drawn to something different about the desk... A little manipulation of the desk caused a secret drawer to spring open providing an ancient compass and a cypher key! with that the party was off to seek fame and glory! However, not far behind them Madam Bruhegier came into the library to determine the fate of her husband's works Quickly discovering that the bait had been taken she and her henchmen were off to recover the goods... after they young fools had sprung all the traps and taken on the curse of course! Before leaving, she went to the shelves and extracted a small metal symbol, said to be the answer to the final puzzle Many days later the inspector hawkens arrived on the scene with 2 detectives, investigating the deaths of three of the university professors and the disappearance of three promising students investigation of the room turned up evidence of the missing students but no indication of where they had gotten to. a nudge by the inspector revealed the secret drawer and a note left by the intrepid archeologist. The inspectors fanned out to search for more clues, quickly discovering signs of the Madam's passing and fearing the worst... And this is where our story leaves us. i hope you enjoyed the minis and the little tale I put together for them. This was to be the beginning of the Cthulhu game that never got started. (players were broken into two groups: the adventurers and the police) the quest was to discover one of the treasure vaults of Atlantis Thanks for looking!
  17. Please see the main post here for rules, questions and general chatter, while using this thread to keep a list of links to your show-offs or show-off related comments in a single post: A reminder to please adhere to miniatures posting guidelines as usual. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84371-2019-rpchallenge-questionsannouncements/ All the information you need should be here. As usual, the new format includes "hard mode" challenge options!  May and June 2019 Challenge Your challenge is: 8! Bonus Challenge: The 1st! Paint a mini themed around ...The Frozen North! (Yup, Winter in a Summer month. In honor of: James Clark Ross, the first European to reach the North Magnetic Pole, June 1st 1831.) Polar Bears, Frostgravers, Seals, Yetis, US Navy SEALS in winter kit, Snow Apes, Winter Foxes, Dire Penguins, Snow Leopards, Tiger Tanks in winter Camo, White Tigers, Frost Giants, Winter Terrain ...are all good. Bonus Challenge: The 2nd! Join the Painting Binge next weekend. Hard Mode: knock out the basic 8 during the Binge. Details: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/86220-memorial-day-paint-binge-challenge-2019/ Bonus Challenge: The 3rd! The third time pays for all. If there was a Bonus Theme from earlier this year that you wanted to do but missed; go back, find it, and give it a go! Post the theme Rules with the link please. Bonus Challenge: The 4th! The Fourth was with us earlier in May. Paint up some sort of mini as a Stars Wars character, background extra, droid, or spacecraft. Harder mode: Do some conversion work on the model first. (Add a light saber, swap a sword to a blaster, cobble together a ship from random objects Froggcident-style...) As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!
  18. Please use the full SKU and name of Reaper minis in the titles of your Show Off threads, per forum guidelines. You can find this information on the blister card or in the online store. I also like to give credit to the sculptor in a tag, so people can find their favorites. We have a high volume of posts generated from this challenge, which is great! But it's also creating a lot of work for the mods. Ladystorm has already urged folks to comply with these guidelines. As an experiment, this project has been moved to be a bi-monthly challenge again, that seemed to have worked so until further notice that is our format. The longer time frame theoretically will give less stress to painting, and allow more complex jobs, and more sinister challenges. FAQ Reaper only? - No. If going on vacation, can I paint a mini(s) ahead to cover that time frame? - Yes. Are speed paints acceptable - Yes. Can it be a mini started previously? - Yes. Based or unbased? - Yes. Do minis for exchanges count? - Yes. NEW RULE - Size Equivilancy (This list is subject to change as bones 3 releases) Medium and smaller = 1 ea Simple Terrain (plain floors, walls) = 1ea Complex Terrain (http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Terrain/latest/03518 or such) = 2 ea Large (Giants and the like) = 2 ea Huge (Most dragons, Demon Minotaur Lord, etc) = 3 ea Bigger (Kally, Khanjirra, etc) = half of quota rounded up Colossal ("Tianot,") = quota Due to the variable nature of a CAV I compare them against a generic 28mm figure and the Avatar large figure. I take height and bulk into considering if it is worth 1 or 2 figures. If it's not in this list, it counts as 1. (not yet updated for the CAV II figures) If you have a question on the size, please post it here, and I'll address them individually. Much like last year, the idea is to help those of us that normally paint VERY little or not as much as one would like, to start painting more. You challenge begins...now! And Our Mantra: Participants: If your name is missing, or you believe your count is incorrect, please PM me. Please note: to make counts easier, post in the bi-monthly thread and include the tag RPChallenge The objective: To paint 52+ minis throughout the course of the year via bi-monthly quota (each bi-monthly thread will have the quota listed as well as the master list) What qualifies: Darn near anything! Reaper/non-reaper! Any material! Shelf of shame minis from ages long forgotten! Exchange minis! Speed paints! Armies! (Though I'd encourage perhaps something outside the army as well) Any Size! Based/unbased! Etc! (I think that covers everything) Year long challenge Pick a miniature of size large or greater to complete in the Jan-Feb Block. In Nov-December, purchase that same mini and repaint in the same scheme to see direct side-by-side improvement or changes in your methods Jan/Feb: 8: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84372-january-february-rpchallenge/ March/April: 9: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/85335-march-april-rpchallenge/ May/June: 9 July/August: 9: Sept/Oct: 8: Nov/Dec: 9: Again, I request that when tagging your posts, please use "RPChallenge" to help with locating minis from this.
  19. So now that we know who won the Game of Thrones and ended up sitting down... Dragoth the Defiler on Throne. Just look at the strength of that undead overlord! Holding his sword casually in the air with his arm outstretched, Darth Vader-style! This mini is from the second Bones kickstarter core set. I based it on a 50mm round lipped and put some black flock around it. Looks good! This one can also do double duty as a Charnel Throne scenery item for my Age of Sigmar Flesh Eater Courts Army. The sword simply would not stay glued to the skull I placed the tip at. That is the power of Bones plastic memory for you. I should have heat treated the thing to position it correctly before painting. Oh well. No matter. Reaper makes a metal version of this that presumably predates the Bones 2 kickstarter, and that has a vampire's head instead of a skeleton's skull. I wonder why they changed it to a skull for the Bones version? "Ah! We meet again! And I see your sword is as big as mine!" 77201 Dragoth the Defiler Reaper Miniatures, Bones 2 KS 2013 Sculpted by Bob Ridolfi Bonesium PVC. 50mm round lipped base
  20. Maledrakh

    Maledrakh's 77073 Freja Fangbreaker

    Freja Fangbreaker. On the topic of female, form fitting armour, it turns out that the upper chest area of female dwarves is invulnerable to all kinds of piercing and slashing weapons, so it does not need any armour! Ain't it great? Presumably the prominent devils dumplings act as bumpers and the impressive cleavage does not at all act as a funnel for spears? Seriously though, this is a first Bones KS model, made in the softer early Bonesium. And still it has rather good detail, only slightly shallow on the quilting on the back and on the lower right hand arm armour. Which goes to show that on larger figures that has deeper details (A dwarf counting as larger? Maybe I should say wider?) Bones is a good material. 77073 Freja Fangbreaker Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012 Sculpted by Werner Klocke Bonesium PVC 25mm bespoke 3D printed base
  21. The Whispering Tyrant from the second Bones kickstarter. This is an officially licensed Pathfinder miniature. So I guess it is some sort of evil adversary in some adventure or other in that game. For me, this is Loki. I expect you see why. To make the model even more similar to the trickster god, I cut off the central helment-thing and carved the helmet round. Which took me whole tens of seconds! Bones material is really easy to cut and convert. I will miss this aspect with the Bones Black minis. On this mini I have tried out some new colorshift paints from Green Stuff World and a flip paint (which is supposed to get the same effect) from Instar. I probably did not do it right, as I don't think it has much of a colorshifting effect (there is a slight effect, though). The instructions say to use a gloss black undercoat and many, many thin layers to get the effect. I did not do that. On a brown basecoat I used GSW Mystic Gold colorshift, and Instar Green Gold Flip, with GSW Tropical Green at the tips and edges. and I just glooped it on! Two or three thick coats of each paint is used here. So next time, maybe I should try actually following the instructions... Anyhow, this model will make a good leader for my undead legions, or even a C'Tan for the Necrons. 89031 Whispering Tyrant Reaper Miniatures, Bones 2 KS 2013 Sculpted by Bobby Jackson Bonesium PVC 40mm round lipped base
  22. Labella DeMornay, Banshee from the first Bones kickstarter, This is a green translucent, and like all translucents I undercoated it first with Army Painter Anti Shine Matt Varnish, so the following washes would have something to adhere to. This is key to painting translucents. Also, make sure to use transparent paints, like inks and quickshade washes. Opaque paints will invariably ruin the translucent effect. The green tinge of the plastic will affect any transparent colours that are used, and so this must be taken into consideration. For her brown hair, I used Citadel Carroburg Crimson shade (a dark red). The skin is Citadel Casandora Yellow Shade, the dress is old Citadel Blue glaze (red flip-cap hex pot) and ditto Turquoise glaze. Taking care to draw off any pooling and to avoid unsightly tide marks by smoothing with a damp brush while wet. The aim is to tint the translucent plastic, not sp much paint over it, or even "shade" it. Not sure how pleased I am with the results here. I think the results could have been much better if the plastic was clear not green tinged. 77096 Labella DeMornay, Banshee Reaper Miniatures, Bones 2 KS 2013 Sculpted by Julie Guthrie Translucent green Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped base
  23. In compliance with the forum rules, you will have to actively choose to see the naked demonic female form by clicking the links: Fully frontal Demon 1 Fully frontal Demon 2 Fully frontal Demon 3 Virina, Female Demon from the first Bones kickstarter. A classic succubus-style female demon. This was a quick paint job, nothing much to say about it. She is very naked with a nicely sculpted figure. No nipples though. Come on! Even Batman has nipples on his suit! But the sex demon does not get any? 77067 Virina, Female Demon Reaper Miniatures, Bones 1 KS 2012 Sculpted by Werner Klocke Bonesium PVC. 30mm round lipped base
  24. To protect any unsuspecting, innocent children from Harmful Subject Matter, the bared mammarial gland look-alike is hidden behind the links: Nearly Naked Model 1 Nearly Naked Model 2 Nearly Naked Model 3 Tyrea Bronzelocks, Barbarian Another win for female body armour protecting just the important bits! Or bit in this case. The right mammary and shoulder being her only vunerable points? Dat a$$ tho! Might this mini by any chance be sculpted by Kev White? Why, yes. Yes it is. Kev certainly has a knack for sculpting sexy people. Single nipple and all. 77374 Tyrea Bronzelocks, Barbarian Reaper Miniatures, Bones 2 KS 2013 Sculpted by Kev White Bonesium PVC 30mm round lipped base
  25. Maledrakh

    Maledrakh's 77447 Werecrocodile

    Tick, tock, tick, tock... Werecrocodile. Yup, a werecrocodile. Presumably someone survived getting bitten by a croc and then turned the following full moon, tearing off all their clothes to waddle down to the river and burble at the moon? So now we are just waiting for the WereDuckbilledPlatypus and WereMoose with baited breath. Maybe in Bones 5? Thankfully this mini does not have any clothing, armour, weapons or other items about it's person. This can work as a monstrous beast of any kind. Even a Kaiju in a game of Epic. This came from the third Bones kickstarter. 77447 Werecrocodile Reaper Miniatures, Bones 3 KS 2015 Sculpted by James Van Schaik Bonesium PVC. 45mm bespoke 3D printed base
