Sorry for the quality (my scanner is broken) but here it is:

I'm gonna drybrush black onto that shadowhound & give him white teeth & red eyes. Just enough purple to make him look unworldly.

 

Provided the purples dark - if it's the same shade as the green, I think it'll be a bit too bright for a hellbeast...

 

I take the "Smokey Purple" to mean a darker colour. Like "Dark Elf Skin" maybe?

99% of people who buy the translucents won't paint them.

True.

 

 

 

HEY EVERYBODY!!! I'M A 1%-ER!!!! :lol:

 

 

How much do you need to cover to qualify?

 

I've painted a Grave Wraith, but most of the creature itself was left untouched.

 

Me too. I painted the base, hit the body with some ink, and highlighted inside the hood and...hell...

I saw the painted Kargir Beast Rider from Jason Weibe. I wonder if it will make it into the kickstarter? I wonder if it's metal or Bones? Both? Just Bones?

Any minis on mounts, especially if it is not a horse, would be exciting. The dwarf bear riders in Expansion 3 is great.

Whoa, just catching up: Holy Cow, that Sophie art is awesome. I can't wait to see the sculpt. Definitely not trading her away this year (last year trading metal for $25 extra in the pot was just too good a deal to pass up).

Depends on whether you're a Sophie-holic or not. I kept mine, and haven't looked back. ^_^

It's probably to much to hope for, but a dragonrider, with say..a lance...

 

Yeah, that would be awesome for a certain campaign setting put out by some Wizards by a Sea...

As a Reaper noob, what is the deal with Sophie, is this a mascot or based on a actual person at reaper?

 

p.s. My "Warlord Second Edition" book just arrived today so more Warlord minis that fit in that books factions would be much enjoyed.

Introductions are in order: Sophie(s).

I'm not a Sophie-holic; but this one just looks absolutely stellar; she's gonna get painted up right quick when I get my shipment!

I'll take a Sophie, sure. But I ain't becomin' no collector! That way lies madness.

 

Edit: Also, pledge totals are steadily increasing by the hour. Is it happening? Is it starting!? The Great Crescendo!?

That new demon slayer sophie is pretty darn cool looking. Fingers crossed that the mini lives up to the artwork.

 

Reaper Sculptors fight over who gets to go through Talin's concept artwork first. I'm sure Bobby will do a killer job on Sophie, no worries.

 

Than they crank out a prototype in a day? That big worm thing when from art to model photo in about 24 hours.

 

Potentially, it depends on the sculptor and what they are asked to do. I wouldn't expect Bobbie to turn out the green for Sophie in 24 hours, but potentially by Saturday.

      This one has been on the desk for a long time. I really like the sculpt, but the cast is a pain as I find most of the older human sized Bones models. The Face was atrocious. Luckily he has a big hat. The photos are washed out but give a good idea of how he looks. He is too shiny for my tastes as the newer Testors Dullcote doesn’t seem to work as good as it used to. Unsure how I ended up going from a coal black duster to green, other than I had too much green paint out for the Marines I was trying to get off the shelf of shame. 



       
       
      One down and thousands to go! 😀

      Bad photos, bad Bones cast, and tabletop paint job of Balto Burrowell the Gnome Wizard. Painted this one up as my sons kid character in hero kids. Fuego is a young kid who can cast some fire spells and has survived three adventures and he was on his own in the last one. 
       


       
      I am really beginning to loath these older human sized minis, but this is the closest I had to a human child for his character. Fairly simple base coat, washes, and highlights. I was having a lot of problems with my skin tone paints being too thin (even after several minutes on the vortex mixer). I guess that is the pit fall of no painting for months outside of terrain.

      So here they are. The Ogre Squad. You can see the WIP here.
       


       
      I love how nonchalant and casual this guy looks.

      especially when compared to this guy.


      The oldest of my ogres. Metal and unfinished for years because I was just never happy with him. 

      another angry ogre
      fond of the face(s) on this guy and also the pig. The rope on the barrel was a little frustrating though. It had a mold line right down its length and even though I wasn't doing much line cleaning for these guys that was both a hard one to fix and a hard one to ignore.


      the bones black ogre has the best grumpy ogre face. He painted up nicely with very little clean up to ignore.

      the other metal ogre Kagunk and his amazing shield. This guy sat just primed for a good long while as I just was never sure how to handle the shield face. The older chieften's club face was easier since it was always going to look like wood, but this I had to think about a bit. I think it works pretty well.

      a few attempts at a group shot. Bigger minis are hard to keep all in focus at once.
      There it is then. There are a couple of details I see I still need to do and the metal chieftains need to be sealed. But otherwise that is it for this lot. I did by the other ettin in bones and I might order the other ogre leader and I think I have a bones half ogre around somewhere.  If I paint them I may update this with new squad members. We will see.

      My waste paint receptacle for my ogre squad. Nothing special or exciting but he's done too.
      probably his best side here.

      This side no so much. I don't know think he translated into bones as well as some of the others like the ogres. But then, he's just a mook so who cares. 

       
      Oops! Looks like I hurt his feelings. He'll feel better when he's amongst his metal brethren. He has a much better base than they do.

      A dumpster.  I started painting it as part of Aaron Lovejoy's blending class.  Then had a ton of fun weathering it.
