Wyrmgear looks fantastic (of course).

 

The real question is: how many gallons of paint did Kaladrax take?

I used about 5 bottles of paint on him in total.

So, unless people used KS paint only, painting the model costs more than the model itself. Just another example of what awesome deal this was! ::o:

I realized after seeing the pic of Kaladrax at the show that him, Cthulhu, and Nethyrmaul will require their own individual sets of paint.

 

I also realized I probably should have squirrelled away some funds for an airbrush.

 

 

Edit to add:

 

None of the Big Bones qualify as the largest plastic thing I ever painted with Reaper paints, though. Nor even the largest by handbrush. That dubious honor goes to Revell's re-pop of the old 1/72 Matchbox Flower Class Corvette - a thousand-plus piece monster three feet long . . . and mostly white.

 

Four. Years.

The wings are really shiny paint. I used alclad II chrome over a gloss black base coat to give them a highly polished chrome finish. Thank you all for such awesome compliments! It makes me feel what I do is worthwhile.

How do you shade with things like Alclad?

Sorry, I missed this, where did you see Kaladrax painted?

Martin noted that he has painted it, but it has not been photographed yet.

Martin, that Wyrmgear is amazing. You did a fantastic job.

 

Five bottles of paint for Kaladrax? Yow. I'm looking forward to seeing your interpretation.

Hey all,

 

I had a Reaper page up that showed all of the currently running kickstarters that have anything to do with miniatures. I hadn't bookmarked it and my PC crashed and restarted, and I lost the page. I've looked through the Reaper site, done forum searches, tried to google it, and not been able to find t again. I don't remember how I got to it in the first place, probably a link from a discussion somewhere. Does anyone have the link for that, or a way to navigate to it within the Reaper site?

 

Thanks,

 

Ben

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
       
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.
       


       
      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
       
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
       
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
       
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
       
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      NOTE: You can choose one demo monster ( skull or abberattion) I chose a batwinged skull and added horns to try it.

      This is my filthy first.
       
      I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.
       

      It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.


      The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

      First time showing something off on the forums! Normally only post to my instagram @MoonglowMinis
       
      Had a blast painting this one up! Had to tap into my painterly side to get the glow effect I wanted and to transition the plating down to the end of the tail where there was no sculpted detail. 
       
      Hope you all like it!

      Here is a set of five zombies I painted up - first 2 are wizkids and I found I did not really like the sculpt, a sort of Elvis pirate looking zombie. Second three are a mix of a wizkid and two reaper zombies. Quick paint ups for the table - being fortune to have an in-house group to play with!
