Wanted from Reaper: Video and Miniature Complete How To

Recommended Posts

I think it would be awesome if I could buy an HD video from Reaper that was an advanced start to finish painting of one or more of their miniatures. Like the learn to paint bones kit, probably without the paint, but with a detailed video on a Master Series Miniature or two from start to finish with the colors of paint and everything. This would be for an intermediate painter or advanced. I know there are the dark sword videos, but i would like to essentially "follow along" a master painter and have a painted miniature in the end. Just a thought, but that was be awesome! If that already exists in some form, let me know and I will hang my head in shame for being in the dark.

Yeah, the Dark Sword DVDs seem to focus on a technique at a time, with a new mini (or a new copy of the same mini) for practically every segment. A beginning-to-end guide to painting a single mini is also useful.

 

That said: Check out the Painting Buddha channel on YouTube. That's pretty much exactly what they do with their videos. I've learned so flippin' much from them...

Whenever I get all of my stuff together over here I plan on something like this but probably geared more towards beginner/intermediate. I don't think I'm advanced yet.

Cannuckotter is right on, there are A LOT of painting tutorials out there in video format. Quite a few free from checking out YouTube, a few paid for that are really good from Dark Sword Miniatures. Check out the Tips/Advice section of this forum for more information from all over the web.

      I haven't been painting much Reaper lately, but painted up this beastie for Jimmy The Brush's July community challenge.

      Story
      Corvus Corax Miniatures is a small hobby project created in 2013. Since then, four projects have successfully funded on Kickstarter and all have been fully delivered on time without any delays. The feedback from the backers have only been positive!
      The goal of this project is to raise funds for the production a total of four (4) miniatures for the Sons of Yetl Black. The miniatures will be cast in high quality, non-toxic resin. The scale of the miniatures is 35mm (measuring to the eyes in a standing, straight pose, although some characters may be slightly larger because they are supposed to be large characters).

      So after too many years of painting with my bottles just in boxes or standing around on my shelf of shame or in various drawers, I have finally at much cost of labor made paint organizers!  BEHOLD!  I made these to hold up to 204 Reaper dropper sized bottles (Army Painter and Vallejo fit too).  They aren't the only ones I use by any means, but they're the bulk of my paint collection.
       
      Wasn't the hardest thing in the world, but honestly I might try another method if I do this again.  Right now the units are loose, probably going to lean them on the wall--eventually I would put supports on the backs so they can stand up at an angle (think picture frames).  The insane super duper bonus feature is that I can put the two together and transport, or more importantly, SHAKE all my paints at once!  The main purpose was organization though and being able to see each of my paints and, when I've organized and sorted them, see the spectrum at a glance rather than digging through a drawer as I have been doing.  For the chromophiles out there I'll post pics when they're sorted and in their proper places.
       
      To make them, I sized the bottles and figured out the hole size and spacing (bottles are about 1" diameter, I used a 1 1/8" hole saw (paddle bit blew out the back side) and drilled 102 holes (sandwiched the 3/4" boards together).  It took hours as my drills' batteries kept dying and the saw lost its good edge by the 60th holes or so.  I used the "holes" I drilled out as supports (had to chisel the middle supports in half) between the silver parts and the 5mm (yes, civilized world, in the US we know how to use proper/metric, and certain sizes of wood are specified in metric!) plywood base (black, not really visible).  I carefully glued and screwed these together.  Decided to use up some spray paint I had lying around.  Enjoy and be inspired!

      I painted most of these figures quickly or experiment when I did so. The exception is the reaper figure. I didn't really paint his face with too much detail, you can't see it due to the hat and what I did paint is sufficient (white eyes, basic colour variation on skin).

      They look better in person (I swear, the light makes the skin look washed out more than it is, plus the hair has darker shadows.)

       
      Feedback and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.

      This is my first mini painting, just finished it tonight. I have a lot to learn, especially the correct way to dry brush. But I followed a Reaper paint kit on the steps for their minis and this is what I came up with.
       
      Once I get the hang of the minis themselves I'd like to learn to make custom bases, this one just looks awful as is.
       
      For some reason I can't get the picture to show the color true either, it's a much more grayish blue than this bright color that is shown.
       
      All in all, I'm pleased with its turn out.
