Hello there! Now it's no secret that I'm a fan of Games Workshop minis, there's two problems with this though, I can't paint armies (I've tried, I lose interest after the first few minis) so I mi

I'm amazed by your smooth painting style! Keep them coming!






Got his hood done (Hexed Lichen > Black Wash > Hexed Lichen > Hexed Lichen/2 brushtips of Off-white).

Made a start on his robe with a basecoat of Sick Green and a Black Wash.


Hopefully nothing will freak me out today and I can get some painting done.

Looks great!






Finished his robes with layers of Sick Green and Sick Green/Ochre Yellow plus some Bonewhite stitching.

Did his tail rings and buckles in Bronze, did some straps in Brown Leather > Brown Leather/Bonewhite, added some Olive Green to this for his knife handles and gave them all a nice Brown Wash.


Just the armour and base to go.

Painted the base Cold Grey, added some Steel Grey to pick out a couple individual paving stones, drybrushed Bonewhite, washed in Brown Wash and I'm all done:-




Balmonoth is part of a Rat Clan raiding party, preferring to be silent and stealthy, he has become surprisingly skilled at throwing knives with his tail.


Next up is the Champion.

Love the sneaky rat!


Thanks! I'm pretty happy with him.


Made a small start on the Champion:-




Did the bony bits (Iraqi Sand/Bonewhite > Brown Wash > Iraqi Sand/Bonewhite > Iraqi Sand/Bonewhite/Off-white).

Also did the remains of his gloves and boots (Red Leather > Red Leather/Bonewhite >Brown Wash, with the soles of the boots in Leather Brown).

His trophy poles were based in Red Leather, given a wash of Dry Rust and drybrushed with Orange Fire.

Two of the skulls got Cold Grey/Ghost Grey hair, the other got Leather Brown/Ochre Yellow hair, then they all got an Off-white drybrush and a Brown Wash.


Gonna start on all that armour next.

Painted his armour in Pure Black/Oily Steel, with Oily Steel highlights and a Blue Wash. Unfortunately I'd forgotten how thick my Blue Wash is, so I redid the Oily Steel and gave it a Black Wash to reclaim the shading. Still remains surprisingly blue.

Then I did the decorations (Brassy Brass > Brown Wash > Brassy Brass > Polished Gold > Sepia Wash).


Will probably get his helmet finished next.

Coming along fine!


Thanks! I wish he wasn't lent forward like his is though, makes him hard to photograph.

That's the newest version of Krell, isn't it? He's looking good so far.:winkthumbs:



Yes it is, or at least was (he lost named character status a while ago).




Did the Mohawk bit of his helmet (Red Scarlett/Bloody Red > stippled Fire Orange > Red Wash > a very light drybrush of Fire Orange) and the horns (Ochre Yellow > Iraqi Sand > Bonewhite > Sepia Wash).


Cape next, and then all the various furry bits.

When I need to pics from a mini that leans forward like that, I put it on a little wooden plinth and then take the pic. 


I will have to give that a try next time I need a shot of his front.

I love your painting methods, and the minis look so good! 




Finally made some progress (Haven't been feeling too perky this week):-




First, I painted his cape (Scarlett Red > Black Wash > Scarlett Red > Scarlett Red/Ochre Yellow), the inside is the same with a dot of Sick Green mixed in.




Then I painted the furry section of said cape. This was a base of Leather Brown/Ochre Yellow, then Drybrushes of Fire Orange/Ochre Yellow and Off-white/Ochre Yellow and a Sepia Wash.


I was going to do all the furry bits the same colour, but decided it would be a bit much, so the rest is going to be grey fur, which I'm doing next.

      I recently acquired the latest of Games Workshops Warhammer Quest games:- The Cursed City.
      I'd actually like to completely paint one of these things for once, and thought a project thread might help!
      First, I built everything (Well, maybe everything. Games Workshop continues to be kinda weird about this game, so I'm not sure if it's getting expansions or not):-
      And then made a spreadsheet. I can't batch paint, so even simple minis (like the rats and skeletons) I've put in small groups to help maintain momentum.
      I rolled a 5 (actually I rolled a 30 and then a 32, but I know this project is doomed if I start with a rat pile instead of something interesting):- Brutogg Corpse-Eater, unusual Ogre:-

      I've made him a simple base (I've been spoilt by all the integral ones I've been dealing with lately), mostly sand with some broken flagstone patches made of putty, and gave him the usual White Primer and Brown Wash undercoat.
      Leaving him to dry overnight.

      Finished this a little while ago, but it wasn't until just recently where I was able to get it into an area that's large enough, and has even enough lighting (whoo, b-day gift of a 24" cube light box and lights!)
      This is the terrain element that was included in the Warhammer 40,000 Battle for Macraggae boxed starter set.

      WIP is available over at: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93848-dusting-off-a-few-older-projects-to-finish-off-2020/

      Here was my entry for the 16th quarterly  Reaper Facebook Contest.  I was honored to receive an honorable mention.  There were dozens of fantastic entries.  
      I wanted to try a white dragon coloration.  I have Deathsleet in my queue, so this is a test run.  His scales are Dragon White.  The ventral surfaces are more of a bone color with Creamy Ivory and Linen White, with Sepia Wash.
      His dagger is a green NMM.  His eyes are gem-like, not lizard pupils.  The skirt completes the “triangle of interest” green color.  I rebased him on a Micro Arts 30mm Sewer base.
      I had a lot of fun with this one.  I wanted to keep him as a rogue, so I chose a dagger and loot bag from his hand choices.  I also painted his armor as leather with some gold NMM.

      Hello everyone, here's what I painted last week, a Skeleton Horde by Games Workshop / Citadel Miniatures from 1986. I mounted them on 25mm base and converted a few of them. I used remaining parts from other minis and changed some shields, skulls and weapons. I also printed two army trays to be able to move them more easily and change their arrangement on the game table. There's 16 skeletons in total and I intend to use them during future D&D games.
