Hiya, nice to meet you! I just learned about minis a couple years ago, so we've never met before. I love these minis, especially Astrid's hair color. ^_^

Welcome back!

 

Thanks for posting those pieces. Your Lonnia is fantastic, and I really love the skin on that Thief of Hearts!

 

You'll find that, despite a ton of new people, these are still very friendly forums. Still a little difficult to get really in depth critique (you have to push people for it), but if you just want to discuss a technique it's guaranteed you'll get a bunch of people chiming in.

 

Good to see you again!

Welcome (back)!

I joined in 2013 so we haven't  "met" glad to see you here.

 

Awesome paintjobs!

As for posting pics here, you can "choose files" when creating a Show Off topic or WIP and then just click on pics on your PC.

Or use Imgur/Postimage/Photobucket or something.

 

I hope to see more of your work, I, as many others here, love looking at painted minis.

I also only paint for fun/display, although I'm not as good as you obviously....I do participate in fun challenges here.

People here like and comment on each other's work, I'v never found a forum as friendly and helpful as this one.

 

Have fun!

I absolutely love your Thief of Hearts.    

Just wonderful.    

 

Lets see if we can get you up to speed on what's been happening since you left...   

Reaper launched Bones miniatures using 'Bonesium' plastic(currently fulfilling the 4th Kickstarter for these),

Buglips the Goblin's house burnt down,

ReaperBryan quit. 

 

That should cover all the most important bits, i believe.

Ladystorm still hangs out here, so the difference isn't all that big.  

And the NotDead shows...    

I don't watch those. 

 

@Glitterwolf Thanks for spoting that one.  

 

Can I change my vote?

I think I like that one even better....

The astrid model is one of my 3 favorite sculpts of all time.   This is my favorite astrid paintjob of all time.   The fact that you don't sell or do commissions attached to that photo made me sad a little inside!  Phenomenal work!  Also, are you coming to reaper con this year? I'd love to see your work in person.

First: Thank you all for this very warm welcome ::D:

This is how I remember the reaper forum and why I came back *hugs*

 

Okay I try to answer as best as I can. English is not my mother tongue, because I`m german. But I communicate since many years a lot at the internet worldwide, always in english and normally I don`t have problems, but keep in mind that I`ll might have problems in understanding slang, idioms and such.

Hi Sanael, thanks for feedback and your welcome. Yeah I know critique is a tender subject not only at the reaper forums. But in fact the only way to improve one skills. In doubt I ask if someone wishes advice, suggestions for improvement and such. I never just criticise, I always tell a way how it works out better and so mostly people react relaxed lol. I`m giving something, I don`t take anything away from them and that is a language almost everybody understand. For the beginning I will be carefully, promised haha.

Hi Glitterwolf. You joined in 2013 and you have got over 40 000 posts???:wow: Wow this is....remarkable. Okay I assume I will meet you often here ::D: I have seen what you are doing here: You are the good soul of the board and you care about everybody. I find this very likeable, nice to meet you. Thanks for your warm welcome and your enthusiasm about my paintjobs haha. That`s great ::D:

 

By the way: I love tabletop paintjobs too. Quick and dirty is also cool. I`m unable to do this because I simply cannot stop painting on a mini until it looks as flawless as possible lol. Honesty: I`m mad. Sometimes I wished I could end up a paintjob in 2 or 3 hours....but I can`t lol.

 

Fun challenges: Cool, that is something I also might enter. I just avoid serious competitions and competition at all. It is the result of all these years in the painting scene seeing friendships ended because of rivalry, seeing bad guys pushing away others just because they felt threatened by their skills and so on and so on. I made my decision and now I feel heavenly PEACE :;):

Thanks for feedback, the warm welcome and your tips.

Hi Gadgetman, oh wow thanks for the updates. I must admit that I have completely lost the overview after my long break. I guess Reaper casted millions of miniatures during the last years lol. By the way: I don`t play games. I`m actually just a miniature painter. That`s maybe a bit dissapointing but the truth. I play playstation and the only board game I play is Talisman by Games Workshop. I´m painting Reaper Miniatures, because I simply love the sculpts. I love them for two reasons:

1. A lot are very beautiful

2. They are most easy and most comfortable to paint. No joke. I`ve tried a lot of sculpts, but always got back to the reaper sculpts, because for me it is nothing but fun to paint them. I don`t feel strained, because the details are all big enough for a very, very comfortable painting experiance.

Thanks for your very kind words. In fact I would describe my skills as a painter as rather averagely or solid. After my long break I checked out the news on coolminiornot and watched some of the best recent paintjobs and.....that was...I find no words, but it seems miniature painting has reached a completely new level and in comparison to the best ones of us, I`m truly just average. But that`s okay. I love what do and I have no ambitions to belong to the best. I`m glad you like my work. This one was a commissioned work for Ian Newbold who is a very, very cool guy.

 

@Ratmaster2000: Thank you very much for your welcome, nice  to meet you too. ::D:

Yep Astrid is a pretty cool sculpt, I love her too. Cool that you like my paintjob that much. It was a gift for a friend and after I gave her away I felt very sad and decided: Hm I will paint her someday again, same colourscheme, everything the same apart from the freehand on the guitar. So: I actually paint her again right at the moment and I make an exact copy of the finished one, but this time the freehand is a skull with pink flames lol. Apart from that I plan to sculpt a huge Marshall Amp and a stage for her as the base and I consider to add the skeleton band from Ral Partha lol.

 

Well I don`t make commissions anymore, and I don`t sell my minis anymore, but what I still do is mini exchange. So if I like your paintjobs we maybe can make "deal". I also exchange painted miniatures for cool bases for example. If you are great in making cool display bases, there is also a chance for a deal. Last but not least I exchange paintjobs for sculpts, terrain....whatever. If you have got something I like and wish to get then nothing in the world is easier than to get a painted mini by me.

 

Reaper Con: As said, I`m german and I`m living in german and I`m poor. I see no way for me to visit America unless I win 1 Million Euro or so.

 

@All: Well that was much text haha. Thank you all for being so friendly and communicative. I tend to answer all posts which are related to me or to my posts, but I`m working hard (nightshift as a carer for disabled people) and sometimes it might take a while until I can answer, but I answer.

 

Cheers,

Yvonne

@vhaidra there are more German people here and I'm Dutch. So we can all help each other with any language problem.

 

Fun challenge.

You might like this.

Just for fun!

I have no intention to become the best painter ever, I just want to have fun.

But I do paint for display and fun.

Looking at your freehand and skintones I do think that's awesome!

I hope to be able to paint like that one day, but I'm over 50 and I need magnifiers to paint these days.

I also paint busts and large scale minis on the side and I like to tell stories.

 

Thank you for your kind words.

There are many friendly people here and this is the first forum I kept visiting due to that.

I post a lot, my job allows me to browse while I work, I got two screens in front of me, one is work the other is Reaper mostly.

And I like to paint and post, people commenting, liking and giving advice to what I painted has made me paint more than ever, and I've learned more here in the last few years then I did in the decades before without this forum.

 

I have browsed through your gallery, awesome work.

I will read that tutorial about skintones for sure on a quiet day so I can try that.

 

There are a few big projects I'm working on ( see my sig) one of these is an Asian Fantasy themed project for fun.

I would love to be able to paint a asian dragon/koi or flowers on a 28mm mini one day and make it look good.

So if you have any pointers how to do that I would be grateful.

 

Now have fun and visit the Random Thread maybe?

There we discuss the important things in life like Bacon, Coffee, Pets and all other stuff.

 

See you around!

 

Oh one more thing.

Anything written in purple is meant as a joke.

      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.

      Every now and then I've seen people start up a WIP thread that's more or less along the lines of "clean the shelf of (blank)".  For me, it's of hopes and dreams, of projects started, but not quite realized, finished, or...  Even painted.  This isn't necessarily going to be one of those more serious minivember, one mini a day, or even a burn towards the finish line to actually "complete" the one a week RPChallenge, uh, challenge.  That and while I'd love to do minivember or even 99 minis in 99 days both of those seem a tad too... Intense for me.  Especially with how often I get distracted from such with playing computer games, longer days at work, or even starting to have a social life!  (Yeah, some of the Infinity gamers in town are starting to slowly coax me into coming out to play and do things, it's kind of nice!)
       
      To meet my own goal this year of beating 2018's count, I'd need another "14 points".  Coincidentally, that's fairly close to the mark of 18 for October through December, so I figure why not!  ...I guess I am going for the RPChallenge bit after all, but I'm going to give a whirl at a full twenty, because I like that number more than 14 or 18! 
       
      In short, my goal is to try and clear some of the assembled and primed backlog I have, and focus on mainly getting those painted up and FINISHED.  Naturally I'm not going to lock out the prospect of adding in a few more minis to the table (I am more than likely going to be building up a tournament HaqqIslam force for February 2020, which will require more units to be acquired, assembled, and painted), but as for some of the things that come to mind for being taken care of...
      Getting Wyrmgear's mods sculpted - I really would like to see him at least standing up at the end of the year Additional work on my Rainbow Dragon Challenge Ebonwrath - he's taking up a decent amount of space on my desk, plus, hey, DRAGON! Infinity Red Veil, and Beyond Red Veil boxed set - at least the HaqqIslam portion, anyways, although I'd like to at least get the Yu Jing assembled and based too Various CAVs in various states Other, smaller dragons! (Pathfinder Red Dragon, Temple Dragon, and I think I have a Narthrax hiding around somewhere too) minotaurs, gnolls, and some Skaven character/heroes A few minis that have become "paint catchers" for when I mix up too much  
      There's probably more, but still.  I'm not going to keep a full on tally of things, but either way, I'm hoping to work on, and finish, at least 14 "points" worth of minis, but 18 "points" would be awesome... Or even more.  Apparently, as of this post, there are ten weeks and four days until the end of 2019.
       
      What am I mostly aiming for by doing this thread?  Well, by having a WIP I'm regularly updating, I'm hoping to not only get more work done close to every day on miniatures (even if it's just twenty minutes), but also get back into the habit of sitting down and hobbying every day.  I really do like how relaxed I am when doing it, and it helps me cool and calm down too.  That and, oh yeah, I already mentioned the habit thing.
       
      Anyways, I did mention something else in the beginning of all of this about something silly, well...  Let's put it this way....

      ^I was okay with some of them trying to teach others how to "roll over" and "play dead", even if it meant my Switch is a little harder to get to....
      I was even okay with some of them guarding one of my spare graphics cards, and the Mission Models iridescent and pearl paints...

      ^Yup, even didn't really mind them taking over a shelf in my cube shelf (there are more minis hiding in the ice cream pail, they're in there due to having been washed) - Actually, this helped kickstart me being able to paint again, since ALL of those were on my desk before tidying up...
       
      But once you try and hold my benching rig hostage....  Or you try to do dark rituals around my turntables...  Oh no, this needs to be stopped.  if I let them continuing running amok, they'll try and take over the entire living room!  (there were additional pics, but it kind of felt like things were dragging on).
       

      ^So...  Here's how my desk looked last time I tidied it up.  It looks a little different, and somewhat messier now, but that's because I have a few projects on the go that I was working on before this post.  Not all of the minis in that picture are mine (the Pathfinder Red Dragon belongs to hubby, for example) but still.  There's a decent amount of stuff on the table, to say the least.
       

      ^So here's where I left off two days ago - I apparently didn't take a picture of yesterday's table, but there were two more Haqq minis done, and I suspect that's also simply because we played Division 2 for like two hours yesterday, then I worked on minis, then I went to bed rather tired...
       

      ^And how things are looking so far today.  All seven minis from the Operation: Red Veil started set are now assembled (although they'll be an eighth one added in eventually due to having been sent a double by accident - Corvus was quick and prompt when replying on their mispack line... Err, email), and bases for the three miniatures from Beyond Operation: Red Veil are drying, so they'll be assembled tomorrow.  The reason why the seventh guy doesn't have anything extra on his base yet is quite simply because I'd assembled him tonight.  I'm not quite sure what kind of colours I'll be going with on my Haqq, but I strongly suspect they won't really be all that traditional, or at least studio paint jobs.  Totally lost on what colours I'll be going with for the Oathsworn Minotaur as well, but I'll worry about that when I get to that front - today's focus was assembly and basing.
    • By Lidless Eye
      I figured it was time to work on some Elves.  They're definitely the smallest part of my painted collection.

      The first batch is all from Reaper Miniatures.  

      These are the metal ones:


       

       

       
       

       
       

       
       

       

       
       
      The Drow who snuck in (from the box of Goodwill, no less)



      More from Reaper, but this time in Bones:


       
       

       

       
       

       
       

       
       

       

       

       
       

       

       
       

       
       


      And the others.  Mostly Stonehaven

      Here's some work done on old Tobias here. :)
       
       I had one idea in my head, and started painting and it went a completely different direction. Once I get all the base coats on him I'll have to go back and give him some dimension.
      Feedback is always welcomed. Thanks for taking a look!



    • By Stonebred
      This is the Tiefling Sorcerer for a D&D campaign starting near me. I created a backstory as well if you have interest in reading it. I posted the backstory on the Works in Progress forum too as I was painting him. Anyways, I hope you like him (and the backstory!).
