Doc Shows It Off

Recommended Posts

That Grenadier dwarven cleric peaking out of the botom left of the last picts is one of my favorite minis. (probably because he is from the first box set i ever bought)

Is that what it was? I got that one in a box of discounted used minis at a flea market. Looked kind of Grenadierish, but I had no idea.

Just fyi, the "conan" is still available. Also, seeing your conan and sonja makes me want to buy a few more barbarians for my yet-to-be-played barbarian themed campaign.

 I have a long-standing plan (which has never gotten past the gathering materials stage) to do a diorama with that Conan (or one of the other two or three Reaper not-Conans, I forget which), with him beginning to face off against two recently-summoned monsters courtesy of 14180: Tharian, Necropolis Mage  as Thoth Amon, who stands on a balcony behind the monsters, with 02749 Jade, dancing girl chained by her wrists to the wall next to him...

Ah, to at last see some Bedlam masterpieces, makes ones soul soar!

You really need to do some close ups of the literature characters, especially Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser.

 

And a question: what color did you use on your scimitar swinging Arabian Nights fellows? I really dig that skin tone.

 

And alas, all that time waiting and only one Grenadier....

 

Have to agree with Krulebear though, a great little figure!

I have a great many Grenadier figures, thanks to Inarah... but I have yet to get around to PAINTIN' most of them!

The Arabian Nights group weren't painted this century. I did them back when I still mixed my own tones with colors I picked up at craft stores. I couldn't tell you what I used, nowadays... nowadays, I use primarily Reaper paints!

 

As to closeups... well.. what I have to work with is a cell phone camera. But it's a pretty GOOD cell phone camera...

Love the yellow brick road crew.

 

The dwarf box set #2003 had a definate cleric in the set and i always assumed the long beard dwarf was also a cleric. I painted mine as a druid type figure though.

Ah, that explains it... never had the dwarf boxed set. I usually went for variety.

 

Above: the Ral Partha circus blister, circa 1988. The Klaun is not from that set... he's another one I found on the adoption table.

      Hello friends!!
       
      I'm wanting to do a little market research and I'm hoping I can get your help. 
       
      For Bones V I sculpted a bunch of kids heroes and their pet companions. These were some of my favorite figures to work on and I'd like to do more. To be very very clear I have NO indication that Reaper will be producing any more of those types of figures and I'm in no way promising to create anything we discuss here. I have no shortage of ideas when it comes to new kid heroes but I'm wanting to see what types of figures people would want if hypothetically I decided to create more. 
       
      I really like the idea of doing brother/sister sets, offering male and female options for particular races or themes. Simply from a design perspective it allows me to explore an idea more fully. Again, this is purely for my personal side projects and fun, not related to any official releases. That said, it's nice to know what the thoughts were about the ones I've already made and what holes people may want filled within that genre. 
       
      My questions are:
      •What did you like/love/hate/ignore about the kid heroes from Bones V?
      •What themes or types of kid heroes would you be interested in? 
      •What purpose would they serve for you? Just fun to paint? Have kids who want to play but struggle to find a figure that represents them? Using them as stand ins for hobbits/halflings/gnomes or other vertically challenged races? 
      •What themes would you like to see explore in this context? Steampunk, modern, arthurian, more "random fun" types, traditional villager or starting hero types? Dragonkin, Genasi or other less popular fantasy races?

      Story
      Welcome to the Splintered Light Miniatures 15mm Return to the Black Root Forest Kickstarter Campaign.  For many years, renowned sculptor Ben Siens has added great sculpts to our line of fantasy figures.  A year ago, we ran a successful campaign adding beastmen and treemen into our range of miniatures.  Over the past year, Siens has sculpted more wonderful figures for us and we decided to offer them to you via a second Kickstarter.
          Our primary goal for this campaign is getting the funds needed for the production molds and initial castings.  Our hope is that as we get the funding for production molds, we can also keep Ben sculpting new figures for future lines.  We need you help to get this done so please pledge today!
        Our plan is to have 11 new codes but we will also be offering these along with the entire range of Ben Siens sculpted figures.
       
       
       
       
      There's only 4 days left in the campaign, so if you want some well-made 15mm goodness...

      Here's a pair of robots I built to use for this is not a test. They are a mix of privateer press cyriss bodies, assorted gw, Mantic, reaper, and historical bits, and some wire. Was trying to play up the corrosion and damage in the paint.

      Just wanted to throw this one out there.  Witchborn is a rather cool tabletop minis game, but there is also a companion app for each scenario with a lot of variety that allows you to play that scenario many times, but each one can be a very different experience.  Your warband will also evolve over time.  I discovered the game at GenCon in 2017 and have really enjoyed it every time I've played.  Plus, Cory is really cool and responsive.  I haven't checked this out yet, but you can also play the game on Roll20.
       
      Did I mention that they use Reaper Bones minis?

      For when your heroes are slightly less than heroic?
       
       
      Welcome to the 2nd release of Fatal Fantasy! 
      Edit (29/09/2020) NEW Painted pictures in Gallery and Stretch Goal Update. Edit (12/09/2020) NEW Stretch Goal section added! Edit (21/09/2020) NEW Add-ons added!  
      This project brings you 23 new fantasy casualties for use in your tabletop wargames or board games. 
      You'll find close-ups and measurements in 'The Miniatures' section, please also take a look at the contents of the 'Pledges' section and the details in the 'Shipping' section. Excellent painted examples by the talented Paul Allen from 'Toomuchdevlan' and Russ Painting are dotted between the sections with more in the 'Gallery'.
      The original sculpts and metal production moulds have been finished and tested in advance so metal miniatures will be ready to ship as soon as the funding period is ended in mid-October.
      I have included a resin option for the casualty bases too - this is to give backers outside of the UK, a cheaper shipping option. However, the resin casualty casts won't be ready until mid-November. (International backers can also choose metal but the shipping costs will be very high due to the weight of the miniatures). I've deliberately kept the resin availabilty low - this is to make sure there are no delays due to casting lead time. If the casting gets ahead of schedule, I will add further resin availabilty.
      In the add-ons section, you'll find the previous Fatal Fantasy casualties, Fantasy Fighters and also some NEW Ye Alchemist sculpts. These miniatures are all METAL and have had the moulds tested.
      This is my 5th project so I am experienced in reward completion and delivery. 
      Slain Mimic sculpted by Aaron Howdle The 23 core miniatures were originally designed and sculpted by Christian Af Bjärgö and Aaron Howdle. 
      Measurements are in green, alongside the pictures below.
      Beholder - sculpted by Aaron Howdle. (Resin Only) Slain Mimic - sculpted by Aaron Howdle. (Resin Only) To pledge simply choose which reward you would like. If you would like any 'add ons', then add the extra value of the 'add ons' to the total.
