Rubegon’s Booby-themed Reaper Bones 3 Deep Ones Speed Paint!

Recommended Posts

The extra time is well spent. The new Fishy Fellows look good, but the ones you took your time with look TERRIFICNICE WORK on the former, VERY WELL DONE on the latter!

Great choice of colors.  The pink is nice and fleshy, and the drow nipple purple makes it just weird enough.

Thanks @Inarah!  The colors were close enough to Kuo Toaish ones, and I’ve been looking for a reason to use them.  The contrast is a bit flat, but I’m pretty with how they turned out.  The GW shades worked really well with these I think.


It was a bit hard to make myself stop and varnish them, but I’m pretty happy with the result for the time investment.  I’m thinking of playing with GW contrast paints to increase my speed paint throughput for gaming minis.  It really is great having painted enemies, but it wasn’t going to happen the way I’ve been doing that.


Having said that, I *am* very pleased with my purple 1st stringers @malefactus and Commander @Glitterwolf!  ::D:


Here they all are used in our session today in anger!  :angry:

Fantastic speed paint - inspirational to my current painting goals - you got them to the table looking great - the purple shades are my favorite.

The purple ones were not quite so speedy!  I still mostly just did basecoats and washes, but spent a lot more time on the details.  I was very happy with how they turned out!


The pink ones were my first real “knock ‘em out in a single session, come hell or high water” speed paints.


I’m motivated to do more like this now because I think I could get even faster and better after this!


Give it a shot - painting fast is a very different skill than trying to paint perfection, and it’s a nice refreshing change of pace.


I’ve got a 28mm “try to paint it perfect” WIP,  my first huge monster resin sculpt WIP, and a few TTRPG minis going at the same time, and it’s nice to flip from one to the other depending on what I’m in the mood for and what skills I want to work on.

      Hello Reaper friends!  You might remember I did a whole tribe of Hill Giants on a display board, with hex bases?
      This is my follow up to that, this time: Stone Giants.
      Errrm, it all got a bit out of hand, and I'd LOVE some input from you all, please
      This is where I'm at after a week and I'm a bit stuck tbh.

      I think I need to decide more about what the "finish" will look like before I go a lot further. Once I cover that foam with more than paint it's going to be harder to make changes. I'm thinking of sort of "cladding" it in pieces of slate, with sculpted  bits / groundwork in the gaps?
      I'd also love to hear suggestions for other miniatures and features to add to the scene to break up those big open rocky spaces. Current extra bits and bobs are just there for a sense of scale and how extra minis might "interrupt" or "enhance" the scene.
      Some next steps though:
      - cork around the hexes on the platforms for the bases to fit into
      - some sort of "door frame"
      - "box in" the sides (which are cut out of a continuing mountainside, in my head at least)
      Please, rain your ideas and encouragements upon me!

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.

      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      This is my filthy first.
      I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.

      It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.

      The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

      First time showing something off on the forums! Normally only post to my instagram @MoonglowMinis
      Had a blast painting this one up! Had to tap into my painterly side to get the glow effect I wanted and to transition the plating down to the end of the tail where there was no sculpted detail. 
      Hope you all like it!

      Here is a set of five zombies I painted up - first 2 are wizkids and I found I did not really like the sculpt, a sort of Elvis pirate looking zombie. Second three are a mix of a wizkid and two reaper zombies. Quick paint ups for the table - being fortune to have an in-house group to play with!
