Two down, four? to go. The elf and fairy are done while the vampire has been started and I would say is 70% done. I also have been doing base work but forgot to take pictures. I poured the resin for the fairy's and is seems to have set with no leaks, so yeah! No frontal pictures of the fairy right now but I will try to get one up tomorrow.

Very nice!

Some mouseling is peeking around your light....

Maybe he is looking for paint? ??

Very good progress!

 

Also, congrats on your successful resin/basing work.

 

Thanks, just keep your fingers crossed that the resin actually set. I won't know for sure until tomorrow.

Thank! I wish I had time to paint him but he will have to wait. He was part of the package containing the two for my diorama and I have not put him away yet so he has been supervising.

Those mini's are looking great. Love the blue you have going on the last photo.

 

Thanks! Surprisingly there is little actual blue in it. It is Icy Violet shaded with Royal Purple and highlighted with True Blue. I am finding that I like to play with colors like this.

Alright, here is the front picture (link due to nudity) of the fairy. I painted the ribbon in her hair as a vine and added a couple of flowers and some leaves. I should have left the flowers off and just used leaves. I am not happy with them but it is too late now. The flowers are from a railroad garden kit and are not sculpted by me.

 

Fairy, Front

maybe if you think of the flowers as berry clusters it won't annoy you as much.

 

 

I think it looks great.

Berry clusters work, probably due to the colors. Thanks!

Ok, no pictures at this point, I might take some later tonight. I have finished the skin and pants on the toad. I also completed the leather, including the whip, and hair of the vampire. Good news is the resin fully set for the fairy's base and it has been sanded and sealed. I added little bit of white to the flowers in her hair and they look a lot better. I also added a few of them to the base to tie things together and added the willow foilage. Except for blackening the plinth and a few corrections, her base is done.

 

Here is my checklist, I have included the names for the pieces but I do not have one for the vampire and have not settled on one for the elf. If you have any suggestions for them or replacements for the others, feel free to chime in.

 

Vampire: "???????"

- Boots

- Metallics

Base

- Mushrooms

- Skulls

- Dirt

- Foilage

 

Elf: "Forest Eternal" or "Forest's Return"

- Done

Base

- Mushrooms

- Tree

- Skull

- Dirt

- Foilage

 

Mouslings: "The Hunt"

- Leather

- Green Cloak

- Wood/Acorn

- Metallics

- Spider

Base

- Finish Stone

- Dirt

- Foilage

- Web?

 

Cat/Toad: "The Bridge"

- Leather

- Metallics

- Wood

- Eyes

Base

- Finish Stone

- Dirt

- Sign

- Treasure

- Water

- Foilage

 

Kabuki Hunter: "The Hunter"

- Leather

- Axe handle

- Metallics

- Hair and eyes

Base

- Add dirt

- Everthing

 

Fairy: "The Blue Fairy"

DONE!!!

 

It may seem like a lot but in reality most of the big stuff is done. This is just little stuff here and there that should not take too long. The biggest thing left is probably the metallics and not waiting until the last minute to do the water under the bridge. I will be using Secret Weapon's water effects not resin as it is a shallow pour. If I had finished painting that part of the base before I did the fairy's water, I would have used the left over resin from that. Unfortunately I thought of it right after I finished mixing the resin.

Ok, lengthy picture update with few words. Any feedback and name suggestions would be most welcome.

 

Spider is done:

Horny toad, a little washed out by the light:

Grey Mousling, why did I never paint Mouslings before, they are too much fun:

The red hunter with her rope bag of orc heads. I love how the red turned out:

The vampire that is turning out to be my favorite. Still surprised the whip worked out:

lovely,   I suspect your not done so ignore my suggestions ...  Toad's leather needs some highlights as well as the tummy on the mousling.

 

The Vampire is the best of the lot but I think the mousling is giving her a bit of a run for the top spot.

      This was my second diorama for ReaperCon but was the one not judged. The idea behind it was a Mousling adventuring party finding treasure but also finding that others were already there. I wish I had done more with it, such as adding more elements on the Mousling side and possibly a back drop but I was sadly running out of time and this was the entry that suffered for it.

      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.

      Yes, a 2020 ReaperCon WIP! And a massive undertaking at that. I'm trying very hard not to nerd out and put this whole project into, er, Project. There's just so many pieces to keep track of, that maybe I'll just use this first post to keep track of things.
       
      Some background stuff, starting with a quote from the "Paint a giant robot! Group WIP" where I wrote some of what's planned:
       
      You can read the rest of that post here: Paint a giant robot post and a second one to see where I'm going with this: PLA print post in same topic
       
      Biggest takeaway is that, while useful, my PLA printer can only do so much. I have a resin printer backed on Kickstarter, but considering it's now 3 years late, I don't think I should hold my breath on it ever showing up. Especially when I can get a new Elegoo Mars resin printer with more capability for relatively cheap (<$300). The PLA machine was bought with both hobby and household goals in mind, and it's served well. But the resolution just ain't there! More on that down the posts.
       
      I also had the chance to gain some experience on  paper plants at ReaperCon (Main post for that in the Terrain section post here: Vellum Paper Plants - Alien Jungle (WIP)
       
      Basically, I have the scrap booking machine to make my own alien plants:
       
      Which now leads me to this WIP. This is going to tie all those pieces together. The robot WIP will still be to get a good camo scheme, but that print job is not going to be used for the final diorama. Instead, that will be the resin printer's job. So, let's break down the WIP work that I can see so far, and will be edited later to add things and mark completions.
       
      Tasks to be completed:
       
      Figures Needed
      Wight (being pulled down backwards, caught by hidden lines) Gremlin Unit 01 (stole a supply crate and ran; actually just bait to get the larger CAV to follow) Gremlin Units 02 and 03 (trip line pair, successfully snagging Wight across the chest) Gremlin Units 04 and 05 (trip line pair, successful across another part of the chest) Gremlin Unit 06 (burner unit, cut Wight's left gun in two) Gremlin Units 07 and 08 (trap door unit, hiding entrance to jungle path with camo doors strapped to them) Gremlin Units 09 and 10 (trip line pair, successful across right thigh) Gremlin Units 11 and 12 (trip line pair, broken cable across chest, possibly falling over from sudden jolt) Gremlin Unit 13 (ECM unit, some large radar dish looking thing) Gremlin Units 14, 15 and 16 (cargo units, loaded up with stolen supplies and headed out) Gremlin Units 17, 18, 19, and 20 (gun units) Gremlin Units 21, 22, and 23 (missile units) Gremlin Unit 24 (large gun unit) Gremlin Unit 25 and 26 (junked units; scavenged for parts?) Gremlin Unit 27 (2nd style missile unit) Gremlin Unit 28 (personnel carrier unit)  
      Wight Conversion
      Right Leg: cut from pelvis; reposition Feet: cut off both feet and swap positions since the tread is only on one foot Base: cut away from right foot, possibly keeping full base around left foot Left arm (maybe): cut gun into two pieces, having one falling to the ground after being cut by a heat lance/chainsaw rope  
      Details to be included
      Camo doors at front leaving marks on the dirt path, but hiding the ambush from the main trail Pieces of old broken larger CAV units around Wight gun cut in two, maybe showing inner details. May have to 3D print an add-on piece Dust being kicked up by the stolen crate (going to try using dyed cotton) IN WORK One cable snapping dynamically, with several bends and twists (superglue on thread?) Multiple vehicle tracks around camp Campfire and tents for people A latrine Other camp details (laundry, chairs, sports equipment, bored carvings, etc)  
      Jungle Plants (V=Vellum cuts, B=bought, S=Sculpted, F=Found, P=Printed)
      Large lotus flower like plants, but dry land and maybe odd colors with a large conifer cone growing from the middle (V) Jester hat plant (balls on stems around a central point) (V) COMPLETED Spiky yucca like plant (V) Jagged leaf plant (V) Tentacle plant (V) Tripod trees (three spoke trunks) (V) Large palm fronds (S) Coral like trees (P) Horn tree (lots of horn shaped leaves from a central trunk) (P, V) Ball vine (like ivy but with odd leaf shapes) (V) Cabbage-like jungle plants with large wrinkled leaves (V) Fuzzy vines (thin wire coated with static grass) (S) Anything I can buy from N/HO scale train setups and painted alien-ish (B) Reaper figures that can be clipped and painted to be plants (B) Odd trees with strange leaf shapes (onion shaped) (V) IN WORK Random grass-like jungle plants (V) IN WORK Stem ends from mandarin oranges (seriously, pull one off and look at it, stem towards the ground) (F) Anything and everything else (VBSFP)  
      Base mounting system
      Design and print modular tiles with bristles on top (basically, Bristle Block toys) Allows mounting of all the above jungle plants Fill in around plants with thinned plaster via a syringe to create the ground surfaces

      Foxtrot was fun to paint. She comes with two bodies, two heads and two sets of weapons so it's possible to make her up as a crazy-haired gasmask-wearing nutter or Hasslefree's version of Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road. As you can see, I decided on the crazy-haired gasmask-wearing nutter.
       
      Her right hand is separate, so fun and games ensued trying to get it glued to her wrist. I didn't dare attempt to drill/pin it as there was barely enough space for the drill bit and I had visions of wrecking the metal. The stock of her AK was on the verge of falling off, so I just did away with it. Her base is the usual Liquitex modelling paste, sand and paint.

      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
