I'm making a small piece of terrain to go with this army.

Actually I would like to make a lot of cool terrain for this.

 

So:

Reaper Bones Graveyard Set Pieces.

Minimonsters Miniatures Crypt

Ral Partha  Reaper  Rising Undead ( Thx @Mad Jack)

Mantic Movement Tray.

That is a SPLENDID start. There is nothing quite like a graveyard for setting a sinister mood. HAVE FUN!

Thx guys!

I have another one of these crypts with a different roof and a lot of stuff left from the Reaper set and some other companies.

There will be a lot of eerie terrain in the future and I will also complement bases with that stuff.

 

I will probably add some raven or rats too.

I'm thinking of adding insects as well.

 

I'm in doubt about adding a proper mini to this, a Necromancer or Vampire perhaps?

 

I will buy some more stuff like this, Tabletop World has a nice Crypt and tombstones set.

Eventhough I don't like much Warhammer Stuff these days, I do like the old stuff and they have this great set Garden of Morr.

Also Minimonsters has a slightly larger crypt as well.

 

I think this army will be rising from a large graveyard and they will be taking over a city, so I can paint plenty of buildings and terrain for them.

 

Of course THIS started it all.

 

And that will certainly be part of it all.

I ordered stuff from Greenstuffworld, it will arrive in a few weeks.

 

Some natural leaves, a set of 48 Gravestones  and two sets of Crunch Plates.

You can use them whole or cut them up to make bases with or put a few pieces on a base.

The set I ordered looks like this:

An example on bases:

One thing for future consideration, try to avoid placing your buildings with the walls running parallel to the edges of the base.

It gives the piece a stiff look & makes it too easy for the viewer to figure out the size of the piece.

Ooooooooh, somehow I'd never seen those crunch plates before.  So adding some to my next order thanks for mentioning them! 

 

Also, a few weeks?  My GSW orders take a week to get here, I'm guessing a different post is used to ship within Europe?

Thank you Al!

 

The next one will be placed a bit out of centre then.

I have chosen the cheapest shipping option which is between 10 and 20 days, since I'm not in a hurry.

If I spend more on shipping I could have it next week.

 

Those Crunch plates are new, they have three different ones.

This one, skulls and Stacked skulls.

Ahhhhh.  I guess I get lucky, because every time the cheapest for me was Registered Mail Urgent to Canada ^_^

 

And as for the crunch plates, yeah, I suspect I might be picking up a few in the "soonish" timeframe...  Can't wait to see what you do with them!

 

They have some interesting new rollers too o_O

      Bob Ridolfi's Graveflesh Servant (aka Bride of Frankenstein) in Bones.  I tried to get some different flesh tones on her various parts, do some bruising at the wounds, and not-exactly-sheer fabric effects.  Spent far less time on it than I should have.

      This was one of two figures I painted for @Fealron for the Secret Sophie this year.
       
      His ideas were Metal, minimal basing for gaming use, a woodland creature, usually considered good but turned to evil, and a minion of a necromancer.
       
      After thinking a while, I decided I could knock out all his ideas with some evil unicorns.
       
      Here is the second.  Maybe once the prior unicorn charmed by a necromancer does, he raised it as a skeleton, and put another minion on top.
       
      Here are the WIP shots:

      I magnetized the mount and rider.
      I had a lot of fun with these, and definitely bittersweet to part with them!
       
      Thanks for looking.

      Here is the finished figure I painted up for my Secret Sophie.

      EDIT - This is now going to be somewhere I dump all my Reaper projects while (hopefully) not causing chaos by misusing the Show Off section. I'll pop finished miniatures that are individually worth looking at over there, too.
       
      My first post on the Reaper Forum, so please be nice! 
       
      Not 100% sure where to post this as it falls into several categories. but here it is anyway - my Reaper Bones Hill Giant "Tribe" and their hillside display base. I posted these in my regular Warhammer forum but they are too far removed from WFB to gain much interest, so I thought I'd share them here in their "proper" home.
       
      I've always painted miniatures with the "excuse" that they will be used to play games with, whether that be D&D or Warhammer or anything in between, so my emphasis is on table-ready minis rather than masterpieces. This is one of the first projects I've done without a clear gaming purpose, but because I'm a gamer at heart I still needed to put everything on individual bases for two reasons -
      1 - "just in case" a gaming use comes up
      2 - because gaming bases excuses a gaming paint job!
       
      I decided on hex bases because I liked the way they tessellate
       
      The paint scheme, choice of pets and landscape are inspired by my AD&D days, I'm constantly trying to recapture my youth! (Glad to say that Reaper Bones have finally made this sort of project practical and affordable, and I hope to follow it with similar projects using the other trad D&D Giant races.)
       

       
      All 11 miniatures used (and the 11th is very hard to spot in these two pictures!) are from Reaper, mostly Bones. There are a few relatively simple conversions, mostly so I could use two pairs of giants without them being identical.
      The major scenic elements (trees and rocks) are made from errr real trees and real rocks, while almost all of the greenery is from a range of suppliers (Citadel, Army Painter and so on)
      I tried to position all of the models so that they are focused on something located just in front of the scene - presumably, a party of hostile adventurers!
       
      I don't want to drown people in images, but if there is interest I can post individual pictures of each giant and some WIP pictures of the project, as well as the identity of that 11th miniature...

      The biggest model I've ever painted, I worked on it in sections and then assembled it onto the base when finished. I made very minor modifications to Kalarax herself, mostly inserting a lot of brass rods to support joints, and using hot water to bend the tail around onto the base (which is 25 cm square!) There was a lot more work on the base, using rocks, grit and sand to meld the Bones "ruined temple" into a larger scene with common elements from my Vampire army (see sig below)
       
      You may know the story of why the model is so big - apparently a communications error meant that it is twice the size it was ever meant to be? Because of this, I removed odd-sized base details like huge skulls and dinner plate coins and replaced them with "in-scale" objects like dozens and dozens of resin skulls as seen in the close up.
       
      My "huge bony miniature" recipe is:
      One can of Army Painter Undead Bone spray paint
      A big pot of GW Agrax Earthshade (or similar brown wash)
      A pot of Citadel Dry Tyrant Skull
      A large flat drybrush
       
      Let the model to the work! You can also use this to paint large numbers of smaller skeletons, of course.
