Well, I finally got to a point on these where it would be worth it to post. These are my major projects that I will be working on for the next few months and all four are planned ReaperCon entries. Right now there is not much to see as they are just at the primer stage but the bases are built and also ready for paint. So from left to right we have the Dark Elf Assassin from Scale 75, Tarko from Scale 75's Fallen Frontiers line, Dark Sword's Wood Elf Warrior, and Reaper's own Crimson Herald.

 

Please excuse the blurry pics, I am cleaning my apartment and this was the best place to take pics.

Some REALLY cool pieces here, I can't wait to see how you paint them all up!!

 

Thanks! I will have further details later regarding the color schemes but as a little teaser, a couple may not be what you expect. ::D:

Basing & prepping minis is a stage in the process that I LOVE doing...I do a white over black base coat that looks to be very similar to your approach. SO I love what you have done thus far with your treasure trove of ubercool minis. Enjoy the rest of the process!

Thanks guys! I am finally getting my painting mojo back and I am really looking forward to getting started on these.

Yeah, I love basing, prepping not so much. Usually I have the base planned before I even decide what to do with the mini but I did have difficultly with the Dark Sword Elf and the Crimson Herald this time. For the Elf, I did not want to do a typical foresty base for her mostly because I did not want to do a typical paint job on her. Once I figured out the paint scheme, the basing fell into place. For the Crimson Herald, I just had him and some skulls on the resin base which is a Town Square with steps base from Secret Weapon. While I liked the base, it seemed to be missing something but I was not sure what. I contemplated water effects but was not feeling it. One flash of inspiration later, I added the dirt and stumps and now it is perfect for me.

Been working on other things at the moment but I have done some time with Tarko. His skin is mostly done, just a few minor tweaks and I have gotten color down on his armor. He was a little camera shy and so the photo does not do him justice. I am really happy with the contrast which did not show up well in the photo.

Wonderful work. I am absolutely looking forward to seeing them finished.

 

Thanks! Same here, hopefully I can get them all finished in time. :unsure: Luckily I am off for a few days next week and will try to get a lot done during that time.

I'll be waiting. I mean it. Exactly in this position in front of my PC. Like Sgt. Murtaugh on his toilet. All week long. Challenge accepted :-D

I will try to not keep you waiting too long. I do know one of the days will be dedicated to building the bases for my Open entry and my two Diorama entries. I also have to put together a desk for my airbrush set up. So much to do and so little time.

Been slowly working on things. Tarko's skin and eyes are done and I have been working on the elf.

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

      Here she is.
      For those interested she is a free sample on Thingieverse.

      Not seen many painted examples of this mini, which is odd because I love the pose and demeanour of her. I've sketched in the basic colours but it's not really speaking to me at this point. I think I could do something with tweaking some shades and maybe introducing a spot colour to lift it. I can't decide how to paint the tassles, for example. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears - which reminds me, I added big elfy ears to the model, should it look odd to anyone. I'd love to see anyone else's version of this mini, too.

      So here is one of two converted Kang, Half-Orcs (02514) I've done.  Pretty sure I posted the other one around here somewhere...maybe I'll try to dig it up later for a side-by-side. 
       
      Anyway, here goes:  
       
      Kang Half-Orc converted to carry a Reaper Bow in his left hand  and a battleaxe in his right (the plastic Bones 3 weapon sprues).  Also has a shield (a GW bit from a really old Brettonian knight) and a GW quiver (Mordheim / Empire free company).   Shield painted purple and yellow because I like color and I get bored painting "realistic" neutrals & darks & such.  As always, my mini photography skills are complete butt thanks in part to using a really cheap light box and a really cheap camera phone.  
       
      99% reaper paints:  Olive triad mixed with scholar flesh, pure black and white, woodland brown, ashen brown, white metal triad, various washes. 
       
      This mini actually has kind of a weird story.  
       
      This mini represents my character Zarkosh Bowyer in a short Wildemount campaign.  This campaign is being played 100% online thanks to COVID-19, so he is 100% unnecessary.  Same goes for another mini I painted (Duke Gerard in Bones and Metal) which was for a DIFFERENT 100% online campaign.  But that's only part of the backstory. 
       
      I actually BOUGHT this miniature back in like 2004.  I bought two of him - my friend & roommate and I decided to play Barbarian brothers from the same tribe.  I converted and painted mine to carry a war hammer and a shield.  My roommate never got around to doing anything with his, and so it went back in my "Someday" box.  

      For sixteen years. 

      Anyway, I finally got around to doing something with the mini - hopefully, Zarkosh does better in this campaign than the previous character incarnating the mini did in his!  
       
      May come back and tidy up some edges & half-tones, may not.  Don't know how much more time I want to give this one.  Probably won't get TONS better than it is now, so here we go.

      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.)
