Book Club, but for minis - Reaper Club?


Recommended Posts

I didn't get any painting done this week, but it was warm enough yesterday and today to spray some of the stuff I painted earlier this winter.  So stuff is still moving down the pipeline.  To that end I pulled out and washed several figures at random, and am trying to ID them: 


Rivani, Pathfinder psychic

Adowyn, Pathfinder ranger

serving girl (townsfolk 1)

farmer (townsfolk 1)

necromancer/wizard guy

2x broken crypts (no Dust King)

gloom stalker

B5 multipart fighter guy


It will be a while before they see paint.   Next warm spell we get I will try to remember to put primer on them.

This one was my sacrificial dwarf i used to test transparent paints.  Cool, but still a long way to go.  I don't fully understand the properties..yet.



This guy was a color test.  I used about 5 colors and tried really hard to mix and keep to them.  Turned out pretty good.  



My favorite part was painting the bushy eye brows.

Reaper's Clear paints are just single-pigment colors.  So red is red, with no black, white, green or anything mixed with it. They're not meant to be transparent.  They are good if you like to mix your own colors.  I like the red wizard.  Nice clean look.  How did you manage to get fur texture on the mouse! 


Identified the following additional figures I washed yesterday: 

Ungorth (necromancer)

graveyard altar

milk maid

Krass, evil paladin (multipart fighter)

Ah, I misunderstood.  Never heard of Monument Hobbies and have not used their paint so I can't comment.  What you're doing looks cool though. 


Hoping for a good day of painting tomorrow.  Have a lot of figures at 80-90% done, just need to focus and get them finished.

Rawr!  Very colorful. 


This is what I've been working on, for one of the players in my group: 




It's a cat-person barbarian. I'm very pleased with the leather so far.  Face and spear obviously need more work.  Lots of little details on this one. Need to have it ready before Saturday.

@AmbrousisI'm intimidated to do dragons because of how big they are.  Way to take one down.  


A friend of mine wanted me to paint her cyberpunk chick for her.  This is how it came out.

I've got all 5 of these elves primed up, but only have 2 painted so far. Testing blending and cape design.  Also did a slight addition of the sword to one of them from the weapons pack. 






And then this finally got based. 

I love working with that water effects stuff.  So cool!

      Here is my War Mammoth from Bones V.
      This took me what seems like an eternity to complete (I think I started it in winter 2021...). Being a big beasty, I had endless problems with paint rubbing off because I had to handle him a lot (and also, I opted not to prime him...🤦‍♂️) so I was forever doing retouches. I also should have probably painted him in sub-assemblies. Anyway, here he is, ready to stomp, crash & paaaarp!














      Thanks for looking!

      Still have to base. 
      Still feel like show needs more. 
      Anyone think the lines on the cape needs to be dark lined instead of white?

      I've been working on this guy for the better part of a month and just finished him tonight. He was a blast to paint, and I'm pretty happy with the finished product. The green wrappings could have probably used some more intense highlighting, but I'm not gonna lose sleep over it.
      Initially, I wasn't a big fan of the vultures (I put them off until the very last phase of painting). But, one I got some paint in them, they grew on me.

      Aaaaand here's #2 of 4.
      She was a bit of a challenge coming up with her base.  I wanted it to look like the first scene that Cloud meets Aeris where she's in church ruins. I wanted to have color, but not too much.  Feels like it works.

      Got feedback? Lay it on!

      I've been basing more of my minis and feeling like I'm actually completing them rather than just painting the model. 
      Here's Cloud from Final Fantasy 7. This is the first of 4.


      As always, i love the feedback.
