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

      I don't do WIP's very often and I'm well into a couple of these guys. But I added a couple more as I started to base the first few so I figured I might as well. Maybe it will help me keep my focus. 
      We have the 3 bones ogres from a kickstarter or two ago, the bones black preview ogre, metal Kagunk 2, and the bones 4 ettin. I may decide to add metal ogre chieftain (aka kagunk 1) as well as he is half finied on the shelf anyway, and metal Norr'Okk, if I can ever figure out what to do about his head. 
      Also considering ordering the newer ogre chieftain, but we will see.

      Well, while I let Devona dry, I’ll switch gears to a mini off the shelf of waiting...
       
      I started Kagunk, Ofre Chieftain a year or two ago.  
       

       
      The plan is for an ice ogre, with blue-gray skin.

      Hi all, my first post was answered by such warm and supportive folks I decided to have a crack at the ol' orc from Reaper mini training set #1. The left eye took me 6 tries (and twice that many curses.)  Really enjoying this new hobby, first time I tried was back in 1983 and it was a disaster.  Maybe patience does come with age.  :)

      I loved this sculpt from the moment I saw it. I absolutely could not wait to paint it. But I was intimidated by it for a variety of reasons. I didn't like most of the color schemes I initially chose, and repainted him several times. I wanted a decent base for him (I greatly regret not rebasing Cthulhu, for example), etc. etc.  
       
      But then things just kind of came together and I painted the beastie a little bit at a time over the past few days... and I'm really happy with the outcome!
       
      C&C appreciated -- this guy was unexpectedly challenging for me, so there's probably oppo for improvement here. :-)
