That base is beautiful!  What did you use for the tree?  Did you make it or buy it?

Thanks, the trees came from a woodland scenics forest canopy set I picked up at hobby lobby.

Excellent work! 

Which minis did you use for this?

Thank you!  The little girl is from Hasslefree Miniatures, it's Medieval children I believe, and the other is Schumacher Ranger sculpted by Bobby Jackson.

      Just a mix of some figures I'm trying to post from the last few months. It's been a long slog taking pictures, if I'm being honest - I've got all the stuff, but my phone's camera is bad and so I try to use my dads. He and I both work different days though, and it's too dark in the evening even with extra light, so I've been trying to wait for days we're both home, with mixed results. I think I've worked something out, though.
       
      Anyways, first up is Bailey Silverbell!
       

       
      She was a speedpaint, around three hours, so I'm pretty pleased with her. I based her color scheme off my favorite Flight Rising dragon, Gladyr:

      Who's got some more elven art in her bio there of her, but she's a ranger's ranger, so I figured a dwarf would do as well!
       
      Didn't spend much time on any one part of her, but I figure she's going to make a good PC/NPC one day, and I'm pretty pleased. As the one dwarf I did of the 13 I prepped for November, I'm OK with it.
       

       
      Next up, a flying snake familiar I did for a fellow player in my Thursday group - very happy with how this came out! 
       
      I started with the metal baby coatl from the Warlord Familiars III set (it's in Bones, too, if you want to do the conversion yourself, but the whole pack was 1/2 off at a local comic shop) and clippered the arms off, then filed them away. They attached at odd angles, but I got them off pretty well - more time and a round file would have smoothed the job better, but I didn't want to spend too much time obsessing, and it's harder to see the rough edges IRL. Clipped away the base and then glued it to a resin "brick wall chunk" I got at Reapercon two years ago. There's some neat GS plants beneath that flock that got buried in the photos but you can still see IRL - just some mosses and stuff to blend it into the ground - and did a quick little quetzal-themed paint job to get it up to snuff.
       
      Of course, the player has since managed to Reincarnate back to a human from his previous Yuan-ti form, so he's changing the flying snake to a centipede to put his traumatic curse behind him... but I have a bunch of those arriving from Otherworld in a few days, and Flying Snakes come up as familiars all the time in my groups, so I won't hold it against him.

      And the centaur kids! These two are Reaper's Sagitarius Zodiac, a really fantastic mini that I wish they'd sell without the metal base for exactly this. I've wanted it pretty much since the first time I saw it, put off getting it, Boneyard closed down, didn't get it because the base was huge, forgot to pick them up at my first Reapercon, and finally remembered this year. Super-cute. So cute. These two are on 1" bases and they fit perfectly, they're at a great scale with Reaper's other Centaurs, and it's such a fun idea for an NPC, right? And they're so in-line with the lore for D&D centaurs, out "helping the grown-ups" with little kid-bows... I love them.
       
      The first is painted up using some references of young Lakota women; she washed out a bit in pictures, but the hair is really a dark brown. Her body is based on the quarter-horses my neighbors own, although, rest assured, she is at least half-horse, or closer to 2/3 by volume.
       
      The second is an elf, with silver hair and a dappled-grey body. I might revisit her at some point; I like the blue straps on the first centaur more than the tan on her, and might redo that.
       
      I've got a third one I just found (thank goodness) that actually reminded me to post these, since I took the pics a while ago... She's going to be modded a bit, made a little older-looking, and done as an adult fallow deer centaur - a smaller variant closer to a halfling-centaur that dwells in their forests and rarely interacts with non-fae.

      Hello again!
       
      here are two more Partha figures I've been working on, two half-elven Rangers sculpted probably by Jeff Grace way back in the nineties.  I'd actually started painting these figures years and years ago, but the eyes turned out horribly wrong on both of them, so I threw them into Pinesol. Recently though, they were sitting on my desk and I got inspired, so started painting them up.  They were pretty simple paint jobs, and once again, because I'm lazy, used the same paint scheme for both of them.  
       
      And here they are together:

      So, a local store had a painting contest - entrants drew a random number from a jar, and that number equated to a Reaper Bones mini we had two weeks to paint and got to keep. I was remarkably lucky, and got the Dracolisk, by the incomparable Julie Guthrie. Since the rules said no more than 75% of the model could be obscured, I felt somewhat open ground with some stumps and some broken statues would be best.
       
      There will be two prizes - one from customer voting, and one from Staff Judging. Wish me luck!

      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

      Thanks to a friend's encouragement I finished my Orctober project just in time.  
      It may only be one lonely Shaman but he still counts!
       
      Technically also my first Bones V miniature painted since he was one of the monthly preview promos.
