  1. I tried making them similar, yet dissimilar in a variety of small ways. They all have irregular freckles on the shoulders and upper arms, and I painted the horns light to dark, or dark to light.
  2. Tre Manor is still working to fulfill his Warbands of the Dark Beyond across the pond, but I painted up the zombies to be a higher grade of zombie for my dnd game. I got the chaos bases at ReaperCon and wanted them to look like they were fueled with necrotic energy further powering the zombies!!
  3. Tre manor is at it again... Another well-designed warband. Unfortunately, one of the minis is a bit... not-PG. So no pictures. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1103158358/warbands-of-the-dark-beyond/description
  4. 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.

    Bugbear group picture (18 pictures)

    Hi everyone, here is a group picture of my Bugbear raiding party. I painted most of them last year and mounted them on 40mm diameter base last week. These are all Reaper Miniatures models; 77233 Kegg the Bugbear Hunter, 02603, Skrug the Bugbear Shaman, 77015 Bugbear Warrior, 77232 Mogg the Bugbear Warrior and 77231 Rugg the Bugbear Leader. They were all sculpted by Tre Manor, except for Skrug the Bugbear Shaman that was Sculpted by Ben Siens. I used Reaper's MSP acrylic paint.

    3205 Friar Stone, Traveling Monk

    "Bliss" Needed a civilian type for a game, and this was the best I find in my lead mountain. Dunno why, but I keep seeing him as one of those beer-making monks carrying a keg on his back. So I painted him as one who just "sampled" the merchandise and really liked the sample. The nose and cheeks were more "ruddy" IRL but doesn't show up well in the pictures. There is a lightish line at the top of the belly where I tried to repair the paint job after accidently flicking some dark wash on it. The line isn't really visible IRL but clearly seen in the pictures. Thanks for looking. *Edit And if something looked odd with my montage, it's because the second picture got flipped when I was joining the four of them together. Just noticed this.
  7. This is Hasslefree HFD104 Drya Lafhelgasdottir, sculpted by Tre Manor, and not, as I identified all through the WIP thread, a Red Box Games dwarf. I think I was confused because she was by Tre Manor. She is also the last, the seventh, of the dwarves I painted for the project "Jade Green and Seven Dwarfs," an effort both to get some dwarves painted up for general gaming use, and to make a group of Jadeborn for a game of Exalted. This is a photo of all the project's figures together:
  8. I think this is my favorite sculpt (at least top 5). I’ve had it for quite some time now but for whatever reason it never got to the front of the line. Recently I thought “what the hell” and put him into the paint queue. I have been struggling for quite some time with trying OSL. Every attempt ended with me calling it quits and discarding that element from the paint scheme. This is the second one that I decided to keep (the first one is the two skulls from the bones cultist circle). I’m really happy with the overall result.

    3212. Iltheus, Young Mage.

    “OK, so the Fireball spell didn’t work that well. Any other ideas Owl?” “Hoo!? You asking me!? I’m just an owl.” Probably my last mini for the year. Wasn’t planning on painting the cloak brown since it sorta merges with the hair and owl, but a slight accident forced it on me. I like the way it turned out tough. Thanks for looking.
  10. This will be mostly Oathmark Goblins but I've also got some of Tre's Bones orcs for the bigger warriors and also some Bones Ogres that will serves as trolls. By LotR inspired I mostly mean that they won't be bright green. I've already painted some of GW's Fenrisian Wolves to be the Wargs. The blond one and the little black one were inspired by my brother's dogs. My nephews totally missed the joke when they fought against these guys in our D&D game. So disappointing... I'm trying to work out how to do the orcs skin. I'm trying to match the Green Ocher scheme I used on my 10mm orcs. First attempt: Second attempt was using Sepia liner as the shade color. It also has brighter highlights but the gloss sealer basically simulates that in the first photo.
  11. I was using this to try a different skin color which I like and I believe I was going to do a bit more detailed TMM but got side tracked. After several months of no work on him, I decided to get him "done" to tabletop level. Here are some shaky iPad photos. C&C welcome.

    8 Bones Orcs

    Here are 8 of my 16 Bones orcs. I cut each figure off of their broccoli base and used my Basius basing pads to create custom bases. Additionally, I did some kit-bashing with plastic weapons from the Bones 3 Kickstarter. I swapped the two-handed sword from the Orc Berserker for an axe which I envisioned him taking from an elf or dwarf. For the Orc Hunter, I cut off his spear and swapped out a mace and dagger combo since I felt like he could pull off a rogue look. In my DND world, 90% of orcs are olive green skinned, and 10% are of a subrace known as Dreadnaught Orcs. This breed of orc has purple-hued skin tones due to magical enhancement by mages from a long-forgotten war. They're smarter, tougher, and have innate magical abilities. I went for a variety of skin tones to try and make them look more unique. Orc Stalker 77051 Orc Berserker 77059 Orc Marauder 77042 Orc Chopper 77431 Orc Slicer 77432 Orc Hunter 77045 Orc Sniper 77056 Kavorgh, Orc Warboss 77064

    03880: Phineas Greybone, Necromancer

    03880: Phineas Greybone, Necromancer sculpted by Tre Manor Overall I'm really happy with how the light effects worked out. This was a really difficult miniature to photograph. The main challenges painting him were the glowing skull and the very irregular base. I tired to make the skull stand out by making very deep purple shadows around it. I used red, orange and white glazes and appear to glow, but without making it look too orange. Making the base look dark enough was very difficult because it has a very irregular surface and every jagged edge catches the real light and makes it look brighter than I want it to in comparison to the shadow areas on the main figure. In future for a project of this type, I would use a smoother style of base so I have more control over the shadows and lighting like on the main figure. Comments and criticism are welcome.
  17. My DM wanted an Ettin for next week's game, and since I have lots and lots of minis... Well, I guess it falls to me! First time using green liner. Also mixed in some brown liner with Ruddy Flesh for the skin he's wearing and the clubs. The beard & hair is Dragon Red.

    Horned helmet duo

    I had some left over paint in my wet pallet from my last project, so I decided to not waste it. I like the axe-guy’s blending more than sword n board dude. Lessons learned! Go easy on the highlights. Had I been braver I would have attempted tattoos, but alas I am still working up the courage. As always C&C welcome, and hopefully you enjoy them.
  19. Ok, here is my first NMM paint job. I'm not sure if I dislike the technique, or just picked a bad mini to try it on first. I found it a bit fiddly and frustrating with all of the dully cast spikey bits. I did a pretty quick TT quality job on everything not NMM, so I know there are a lot of places to improve there. Also, I feel like the photos make it look better than it really is. I'm pretty happy with how the front of the armor turned out, but the shield and shoulder pauldrons were frustrating. Would truly appreciate any feedback on improving the quality of my NMM! I'll be doing Mangu next and tracking in the same WIP thread. Wip thread here:

    Tre is at it again, this time with dwarves:
  21. Last severed head for the day, I promise. 77056: Orc Sniper (Archer) by Tre Manor with the head of the tiger from 03253: Jungle Girl with Sabre Tooth Tiger by Werner Klocke. *tiger heads were ordered separately from the Boneyard, not chopped off a mini. Used for a litorian PC. Litorian's are a race in Monte Cook's Diamond Throne campaign setting.

    Frodwine the Young by RBG

    Frodwine the Young by Red Box Games Sculpted by Tre Manor I painted this one in an effort to cross two or three lines together; 1800 trapper, Final Fantasy wizard and Nordic(in terms of the way Tre Manor sculpted it). I wanted to try some OSL on this one so I went with making his eyes glow. I was "o.k" with the way it turned out. The base is a metal base from a set I got in the Box-of-goodwill a few boxes ago. I'm on a NMM kick right now so no TMM on this one. Over all I am luke-warm with out this turned out. The matte varnish (Vallejo) kind of glossed up for some reason when I sealed it... You live and learn. Hope you like it.

    Hvitrafn the Strange: RBG

    Hvitrafn the Strange by Red Box Games Sculptor: Tre Manor Resin with a hand sculpted base. With this one I had to shave down an standard MDF circle base (from warsenal wargaming terrain). I didn't want the base to be too high off the standard but look more natural. I think it came out very well. Hope you guys and gals like it. Thanks for looking. C&C welcome. You can see the WIP here.
  24. Stared work on this guy finally! I sculpted the base myself. I really like that he is slight bending at the knees which made him standing on the stairs i made look more authentic. On to the painting! Texture is the name of the game from this weekend. GW: Vomit Brown (which is like a yellow brown) on the tunic. Several coats until I could not see grey from the primer. GW: Vomit Brown & Leather White (my favorite paint bottle ) [4:1] - To do some upper highlights on the all the raised areas. Dotting or Stippling with a Mixture: GW Vomit Brown mixed with Walnut brown. So the color was a little darker than the tunic's primary color. Then stippled or dotted with Walnut brown over THE ENTIRE THING. After that I did some diluted brown washes pushing into the recesses and some re-highlighting, re-shadowing, etc etc. The pants: Painted in Leather White highlighted in PURE White washed in Muddy Brown (which is a green brown.) The bag: Painted Royal Purple, highlighted with Leather white then washed in Muddy Brown
