Metal Kale Nolan with Bones treasure chest

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the kind words! I'm still fairly new to painting - this guy is for my own PC, and he was about the ninth or tenth figure I've finished so far. The trickiest part was getting him to not fall over. With a metal figure up top and just plastic and cork on the bottom, he was quite top-heavy. I ended up filling the base with Liquid Gravity, then stuffing a quarter under it all. He's rather stable now.


I've been looking through the other awesome threads in this forum, and it occurs to me that a decent background would be a civlised thing to do in my future pictures.

The crowbar belongs to Violet, the party's bard (played by my wife). He's totally in love with her and she has no clue, but she happily loans him her crowbar when he asks nicely. The crudely-painted, stylized 'V' on the front face of the shield looks crude because it was an after-market modification by my character.


The chest jumping-off thing is just for fun (and not at ALL because my Kickstarter package arrived the same week as the mini). Balor, my ranger, is somewhat modeled after Captain America, so I wanted to evoke that dynamic movement of The Cap. I also rotated his red, white, and blue colour palette into burgundy, turquoise, and amber, with a little indigo for the fourth colour.

Nice painting, but why is he leaping off the treasure chest with a crowbar? Does he know there's a trap?

      Presenting a pair of Deep Gnome heroes (I'm calling them Harold and Alice) from Reaper.
      I got these to see what the Bones Black material was like on smaller minis (I was quite impressed), and while some parts could've gone better (One day I'll learn how to highlight dark blue) they were a lot of fun to paint up.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      just wishing to put this out there, but what are the chances of warlord coming back, hopefully with the success of bones reaper can really hammer our full fledged army boxes. i only ask this as warlord was my very FIRST miniatures game and heck it was the first miniatures i ever bought and wish to see it again even if its just bones army sets or something. maybe even a third edition possibly. 

      i mean am i alone in wanting warlord back?

      Heya guys! I’m relatively new to the hobby and I’ve only recently discovered Reaper minis. This is my new favorite company, great pieces that even a broke dude like me can afford.
      I suffer from partial blindness so extreme details can be a challenge....but it’s just for fun so whatevs. I plan on spending my remaining years of vision painting as many pieces as I can. 
      I’ve seen some really incredible work from you guys! Thanks and feel free to hit me up. I’m always down to chat about minis and always open to critique. I’m here to learn.

      Inspired by Doug Sundseth’s red and white legionnaire, I did this mini for a paladin I want to play in an upcoming campaign. This guy offered a lot of fun details, especially the sword and sheath. I used Liquitex basics, with some Agrax Earthshade

      Saw this figure in my LGS a while back, decided to buy it, and now I'm using it as my new DnD character. He was quite intriguing to paint. I really enjoyed this one. I used Citadel paints for it. I also gave it a spray undercoat first, I do with all minis even ones that are already primed, too much of a habit now.
