My Reaper habit started with a Friday night gaming session...
"Tom felt a breeze wafting up from the chamber beyond. For some reason the air was hot and heavy, even though he was walking along a passage deep in an abandoned mine."
"Ummmm. Sorry, but we have to stop here today." I did not have a dragon mini to use to harrass Tom. A salt shaker just does not have the same drama as slapping the correct monster mini down on the table. I also could not handle everyone laughing at my poor (ugly mishapen) solder dragon.
Time to take a trip to the old Lone Star Comics and see if they had a Dragon that I could afford.
As usual, walking into Lone Star was like entering Alladin's cave of treasures. Real Partha, Grenadier, Rafm, and more distinctively sparkled, beckoning, despite the cost. A Dragon was too far out of reach.
Back along the wall, there was something new. There were affordable minis on the back wall!
I was able to score a package of villagers, some weapons sprues, and a real Dragon mini.
Tom was promptly roasted to a medium rare, and eaten by the freshly painted red Dragon the next friday.
Don't laugh too hard, but this is the solder dragon in question. It is amazing what can be made with a soldering iron, a little flux, a bit of solder and a ton of patience. It did in a pinch, but was retired after the Reaper dragon made its appearance.
In the 5E game I recently started played, one of the characters created a halfling bard. I had yet to paint Lem from the Kickstarter so he received a quick paint for the tabletop last week. Of course, that player didn't show up to last weeks game but Lem is ready when needed. Now that I look at it I see there are a few little bits that I missed but I doubt I go back and touch him up.
I needed Ezren's arm w/staff to modify another miniature that my friend did not like the candelabra it was holding.
I painted this Ezren to look like the other one he has off mine and green stuffed it tentacles with any leftover greenstuff I had over time. Hopefully he can find a gaming use for this doppelganger.
This is an Aasimar Summoner and his Eidolon that I painted up for my new Pathfinder campaign. I'm pretty sure the foo dog is supposed to be a statue, but eidolons are typically otherworldly creatures, so the blue skin and gold mane makes him look bizarre enough. I'm really happy with the color scheme and how they compliment each other. It might be a little hard to tell from the pics, but his hair has a gold colored hue and the eyes are glowing purple to match the eidolon. I tried to create a glowing effect coming from the staff, as well as his outstretched hands. I also attempted some minor photo editing to brighten the pictures up, as the lighting in my house is pretty weak. Overall, I'm pretty proud of this pair, but I will probably touch up a few things here and there. Any tips on glowing or magic effects that I could add to the summoner or eidolon would be appreciated. Thanks for any comments or critiques!
Presenting Hecklemeyer & Styx.
" I'm a joker,
I'm a croaker,
I get my heckles on the stage.
I'm a chancer,
I'm a prancer,
I'm a nec-ro-mancer,
Reanimatin’ the deranged.
I'm a joker,
I'm a choker,
I'm a life-re-voker,
Tellin’ jokes beyond the grave.
W-o-o-o h-o-o-o! "
I really enjoyed painting this mini, I love the sculpting on it! I was inspired by another Joker for the colour scheme......
Thanks for looking!
