My husband and I just started playing in a Curse of Strahd campaign for DnD 5e yesterday. In prep for the first session, we each picked out a Reaper mini to represent our PCs and I painted them. I barely finished them in time for the session but somehow I got them ready in time! We even got to do our first battle using them, and we survived! It is my first time painting minis for a campaign so I'm glad they at least survived session 1 haha.
They were both painted with all Reaper paints, though I did use a few GW washes and a texture paint as well. These are the 3rd and 4th minis I have ever painted - I am new to the hobby - and they are the first two I have finished all the way through basing. It was a really fun learning experience! There are definitely places I can improve but they looked really good on the table!
Here's my husband's half-orc sorcerer Kron represented by Gon'Tarr Orc Shaman (I know DnD half-orcs are in the PHB as gray skinned, but my husband wanted green.) -
All the Reaper paints I used for Gon'Tarr -
And this is my human fighter Anneliese represented by Joeliyn Sister of the Blade -
And the Reaper paints used for her -
I also had a WIP thread for these two if you wanted to see some of the before shots.
My husband and I are about to join a campaign to play through the Curse of Strahd adventure for 5e. My husband is playing as a half-orc sorcerer and I am a human fighter. We decided to go with 03879: Gon'Tarr Orc Shaman and 14604: Joeliyn Sister of the Blade as our respective PC minis. They will be the third and fourth minis I have ever painted, the other two being from one of the Learn to Paint kits.
My mini hasn't arrived yet but my husband's has so I've made a little progress on him. I cleaned him up, glued to a square base, used some green stuff to smooth out his integrated base, primed him, and put some of the base coat colors down. I've used all Reaper paints so far - their white primer along with Leather Brown for the leather bits, Harvest Brown for the wood, and a hobbled together mix of Camouflage Green, Military Green, and Warrior Flesh for the skin.
I plan on doing a base coat of all the colors first to make sure we are both happy with the choices before moving onto washes and highlighting. My shipment with my mini along with some bone colored paints that I need for Gon'Tarr's skull accessories should be here tomorrow!

I actually finished painting this mini nearly a month ago, but am just now posting it. Overall Iâ€™m happy with the results although Iâ€™m still working on figuring out how to shade the hair and face. Originally I painted the hair black to shade the blonde over it, but the dry brushing didnâ€™t work too well. Its hard to see but I used two colors for the blonde. I used two colors of silver for the armor too. Painting that half eye was surprisingly difficult, much more so than the full eye, I had to try several times. Iâ€™m experimenting with the lighting to try to get the colors to show up better in the pictures. I added trimming and lapel pins to the red cloak to try to make it less plain. Hope you like the paint scheme!
