Some painted Reaper minis for my dungeon crawl...

Love your painting style,  your whites are especially nice!

Fatastic - it is like a study in using brown grey and rust, and that it does not limit your creativity or palette. And as noted - your whites are very nice.

I like your style - and how you used such muted colors to make stand out figures. My favorite is the Hill Giant!

Thanks, and yeah I definitely have a love of muted/earth palettes.  I also use Army Painter strong tone on most of my miniatures as I try to paint quickly, so they all end up with the same overall toned down look.   I'll throw in some more non-Reaper stuff here as well.

A few more miniatures I forgot to add!  Some of these are bad guys, some are allies, some are not currently in use...but I've got the pics anyway.

These all look great,  but just so you know,  forum rules says to have 1 show off thread per mini or set of themed minis.  Long drawn out threads with random minis are discouraged.

But didn't the OP say these were minis being shown in his dungeon crawler game??

Wouldn't that be a "theme"??

 

Also, in the post directly above Citrine's above mine...what is the mini in the first pic?

 

Thanks.

I love Army Painter Strong Tone for this exact reason...really allows quick, but great table top minis. Some Questions...

 

1. Do you use the "dip" or quickshade wash?

2. How do you apply? Do you thin it at all?

 

Great job on all of these, they really looks great.

I use the dip, occasionally thinning it with mineral spirits as needed (though eventually you lose the proper "cling" of the dip and have to replace your can).  I have mixed results, sometimes if the can is new, it's great.  Other cans I've received have been sitting on a shelf for a year or two and are pretty poor.

 

I tend to apply it indoors using curved pliars on the base, and submerge the whole miniature.  I let it drip off and then use chopped up or shredded bits of paper towel to pull off the excess.  I used to shake them off outdoors, but that's annoying - so indoors it is.

 

Like any hobby thing, it's definitely a process you learn, and because it "sepia tones" the miniature you need to go back and highlight the occasional stuff (or have a q-tip on hand with mineral spirits to wipe away the dip on large bright surfaces).  I definitely aim for tabletop and fast....normally trying to crank out 200+ miniatures a year when I have a suitable gaming project.   I find the dip helps protect the miniatures and locks in the basing material (which I apply before priming).

      Finally finished an NPC mage that plays a recurring role in my campaign. Now that she’s done the party will probably never return to her castle .. fun to paint

      Further efforts to produce a dozen dragons this year brought me out to the desert sands where even dragons new to worry about being spotted if they want a decent meal.  To this end desert dragons are campflaged to look like the ground from above and the sky from below.
       
      Hope you enjoy him

      Here is my take on the Dance of Death sculpt from the Bones 4 Kickstarter.
       

       

       
      I really enjoyed this one,  finishing it up this last winter. I saw someone mention somewhere online that they were bummed that the heads didn't exactly line up, but I found it reminiscent of dogs when they are snarling while looking sidelong at each other.
       
      Apologies for the scratches and discolorations on the background. I've been meaning to pick up some black cloth to improve that.
       
      Thanks for taking a look!

      I have done about 15 minis over the past year (starting with the Learn to Paint kit), after taking a 30+ year break from painting lead with Testors enamel. Each one I try to learn or improve one technique. This one I focused on pose & basing (took a little surgery to get rid of the pudding base and shape all the claws). The 'rock' is a chunk of bark. Any comments, critiques, questions or suggestions are welcome. Between this forum and YouTube, I am amazed on the knowledge and information available, in an overall great community. Getting ready for Bones V delivery!
