That's a cool present!

 

Thanks, I was more than a bit nervous about it since I know I'm not a great painter by any means yet, but it does help that it was for my wife, so I could have probably just dumped a couple of pots of paint over top of them and she'd have still liked it, lol!

It looks good!

And painting something as a gift is always awesome!

Biggest problem I ran into was a nasty mold line on the snowman that just didn't want to go away.

Scraping with a hobby knife usually works pretty well.  I have a knife with a dull blade I use just for that.  

 

Another way to cover up small defects, including mold lines, is to use acrylic medium (gloss or matte medium or MSP brush-on sealer, for example) or a putty that can be smoothed with water like Apoxie Sculpt or Milliput.  The acrylic medium method works faster, but may take a number of coats, depending on the issue.

Thanks for the tips! I had heard about using a hobby knife and thought about it, but was afraid of slippage on the metal surface (granted I know to cut away from me, but still).  :) That said, it is something to consider in the future. I also appreciate the idea of the medium, I hadn't thought of that. 

 

Annnd *slaps forehead* Of, course, the putty idea is a great one and I have plenty of green stuff that I could have used. Don't know why I didn't think of it, especially since on a snowman it would not have even had to be perfectly smooth to look good, in fact, it would almost look better if it wasn't perfectly smooth. All part of the learning process. I really do appreciate the advice, thanks!

      The second of the superdeformed Chibi hero minis from the Bones 4 core set that I have painted, here comes Arnise the Elf Barbarian.
      Kissed by fire.
       

      I have no idea if she actually is meant to be a barbarian or not.
       

      Getting that much skin smooth is not an easy task, especially not by drybrushing. ...oh damn I forgot the freckles!
       

      Same height, different scale.
       
       
      B4Core#118 Arnise
      from the Small World Heroes subset in the Bones 4 Core set, 2019
      Reaper Miniatures
      Sculpted by Gene Van Horne (I think!)
      Made in Bonesium PVC
      25mm integral, sculpted base
      should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future

      A bit of a departure for me today. Chibi, a style formerly known as Superdeformed before Anime became popular in the western hemisphere.
       
      I am not particularily fond of Chibi; that superdeformed cutesy manga look that has insidiously permeated the pop culture of today. Sigh. What is the world coming to?
       
      Now they also have infiltrated my beloved Bones...
       
      During the Bones 4 kickstarter campaign, they offered chibi versions of some of their existing minis as free additions to the core set as social stretch goals, adding them one by one as their target numbers for facebooks shares, retweets, tagging pictures or other interactions on social medias were met.
       
      The full six chibi miniatures did end up In the Bones 4 core set. As I am sworn to do the entire Bones 4 core set, I am honour bound to paint them all eventually...gah!
       
      So...I painted the chibi Sophie for starters.

      Sophie the succubus is the Reaper Mascot of more than 20 years, and versions of her have beed used for promotions and to mark special occasions since way back when. She has had figures in every Bones kickstarter. In Bones 4 she had this chibi and also a normally scaled mini.
      I went for the classic red devil look, with the opaque but shiny black eyes that I find most fitting for devils and their ilk.
       
      Is it cheating to do the eyes in gloss black?
       

      ARRGH! A giant-headed devil woman! She must be put to the sword!

      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.

      For use in a D&D 5E game I'm playing in, this is my lizardfolk ranger, Suresh. 
       
      I really love Gene's lizardfolk sculpts, and I like that they're in Bones, because that makes them cheap enough to be plentiful and very easy to customize. Obviously modified from the original "spearman:" removed spear, repositioned arms, added axe and shield, added lizard crest.


      The shield and mud were both made with Happy Seppuku (R.I.P.) stamps; the plants, crest and shield straps were handmade from greenstuff; the axe is from a Kingdom Death: Monster phoenix weapon sprue.

      Hi everyone, it's an Orcish Weekend. Here is 14270, Dantral the half-Orc, Reven Captain sculpted by Gene Van Horne.
      This model is from the Warlord line and part of the Reven faction. I painted it with Reaper's MSP acrylic paint and ink.
