May take a break from painting these guys.  I've got lots of other figures waiting, or I might start another CAV faction.....

Love them!! I really need to work on mine :( hah

 

They're looking awesome, well done on them!

 

Love your squad!  Do you know how these compare in scale with the Ironwind Metals Battletech minis?

Just from what I've seen in a local store, those battletech minis are much longer and spindlier - at least what they had in stock were. I'm not sure of scale of course, but the reaper CAV are much squatter and more compact.

 

If that helps lol

Oh darn.  I guess that just means I have to get some to compare to the ones I have.  That's just going to hurt my feelings so so much.

 

Edit:  The link between fingers and brain apparently aren't completed yet this morning.

Sorry, you'll have to go shopping (the horror! ::D: ) I don't have any of those battletech figs.  I do have some of Palladium's Robotech figs; if you have those I can do a size comparison shot  ::):

Nah the only ones I have are the Battletech minis that came with the beginners box and a Battlemaster that I painted horribly.  I've been seeing the Bones CAV show offs and thought they looked pretty amazing so I've been thinking about snagging a few of them when they get released.

      Hello Reaper friends!  You might remember I did a whole tribe of Hill Giants on a display board, with hex bases?
       
      This is my follow up to that, this time: Stone Giants.
       
      Errrm, it all got a bit out of hand, and I'd LOVE some input from you all, please
       
      This is where I'm at after a week and I'm a bit stuck tbh.




       
      I think I need to decide more about what the "finish" will look like before I go a lot further. Once I cover that foam with more than paint it's going to be harder to make changes. I'm thinking of sort of "cladding" it in pieces of slate, with sculpted  bits / groundwork in the gaps?
       
      I'd also love to hear suggestions for other miniatures and features to add to the scene to break up those big open rocky spaces. Current extra bits and bobs are just there for a sense of scale and how extra minis might "interrupt" or "enhance" the scene.
       
      Some next steps though:
      - cork around the hexes on the platforms for the bases to fit into
      - some sort of "door frame"
      - "box in" the sides (which are cut out of a continuing mountainside, in my head at least)
       
      Please, rain your ideas and encouragements upon me!

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
       
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.
       


       
      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
       
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
       
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
       
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
       
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      This is my filthy first.
       
      I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.
       

      It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.


      The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

      Had a lot of fun painting this one, I did have to leave out some of the finer details though, there's little, tiny stitches all over him that I could barely see never mind paint!
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      First time showing something off on the forums! Normally only post to my instagram @MoonglowMinis
       
      Had a blast painting this one up! Had to tap into my painterly side to get the glow effect I wanted and to transition the plating down to the end of the tail where there was no sculpted detail. 
       
      Hope you all like it!
