Seemingly unrelated to each other, but I swear all these minis were drying from the sealer by 11:23pm on 12/31/2020.
Here are....Lidless Eye's Last Minis of 2020!
A Winter Wizard from Reaper Miniatures oh wait it's Santa, isn't it?
To back him up, some friendly Reindeer to back him up.
Wait, I'm being informed they're actually Grashrak's Despoilers from Warhammer: Underworlds
The last bit of their native habitat, a fallen tree (3D print from The Lost Adventures)
A creepy Scarecrow Puppet familiar from Reaper Miniatures.
Arik Axereaver, Barbarian, acquired as a bonus along with the Father Christmas. His head seems to reflect everything in the lightbox.
And doing what we all should from the last year, the Fleeing Halfling from Warploque Miniatures. He must know Johann.
In a glen among the trees
Lies a bush on the ground
Its ferns ruffled by a light breeze
And its roots spread through a mound
I will now hold court
It will be short
So let me be brief
Who defaced my leaf?
The scribble and scratch of the old man’s pen
Filled the small glen
The court was in session
It would not end before a confession
It was not I
I saw it with mine own eye
It was the one in the red hat
That little gnat
The accused toyed with his beard
Among mortals he was feared
But even he would not dare
That he could swear
Two red caps waved through the air
One of the wearers was a fibber
But which one of the pair
For none yet gibber
One of the things I learned when painting this set is that stippling works really well for frog (and amphibian) skin. Overall the were a joy to paint, thought I do wonder if 15mm dwarves and elves would not be a lot more cost effective if I ever want a lot of small folk.
The "Minitaurs" from the Bones 4 core set, one of the earliest strech goals added to the set.
I have no idea whether these represent something specific in D&D or not. They might be stunted minotaurs, swole beastdwarfs, goatmen, large implike demons or maybe something entirely different. Whatever the case may be, they are quite comic-looking in their art direction. Probably has something to do with their wide muscular torsos more than anything.
I do find it a bit strange that there are three of one type with cowlike shaped (but serrated like ibex) horns, and the fourth one which more than anything is a reindeer. Naturally, this one is called Rüdölf. With umlaut as he obviously is the most heavy metal one. Note the Hellraiser loincloth and birdskull nipple-ring,
This one has what seems to be a defect in his wrist:
Why is there a hole there? Is there a part missing or is this just a miscast? Does anybody else have this same armhole?
#68, #69, #70, #71 : The Minitaurs subset
Bones 4 Core set, 2019
Made in Bonesium PVC
should be available from reapermini.com some time in the future in Bones.
Furiously Fluffy Howling Hounds, WhiteWulfe paints gnolls, minotaurs, and more! (probably pic intensive)By WhiteWulfe
Okay, I couldn't really resist the silly title that had a touch of alliteration... Guess it's a thing for me or something. Anyways, I figured I'd want to do up a long-term WIP thread featuring a themed army that has the goal of being made mostly of Reaper miniatures... That and hey, I like gnolls and minotaurs, so... Why no! Not quite certain what the precise theme is just yet, but we'll roll with "spots and stripes are awesome, as is a love for axes and mythology in general" as the starter of it all. Initially, this army will be made mostly (if not all) with Bones figures, but eventually metal minis will find their way in. Bones are rather convenient with their pricing, and there is a wide selection on offer!
It's also something to paint other than my various Games Workshop armies (Tau, Catachans, a scattered amount of Space Marines, a few Tyranids (for now), Skaven, as well as (fantasy) Orcs, although I have nowhere near as many greenskins), and my main focus is purely on fun, with fluff to come as things go. That and I very much so plan on spending a good amount of time on each mini, not just for detail, but to improve my own skills in general. One could potentially argue that I intend on making these guys more of my "showpieces", which is something I don't mind the thought of at all
I like how @Glitterwolf formats their posts, so... I'm thiefing parts of it, as it's a nice formatting, and of course provides a reasonable amount of detail for it all, so why not
Pictures were taken with my mobile phone (Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge) because at the time I didn't quite feel like messing around with my G85 - or something to that effect ~_^
First and foremost, we have double trouble with a handsome hunk, I mean a minotaur who means business! 77012 Gnoll Warrior, 77013 Minotaur, and 77236 Bloodmane. White bones doesn't quite look appropriate in my eyes as it's "naked", so let's fix that...
^Both gnolls now have primer on them... And of course the couple of mold lines I missed are blatantly visible... Not that I mind, it's always nice to find them NOW other than a few hours into things...
I'm planning on going somewhat darker for their fur, hence why the medium-ish grey priming job.
09108 Brush-on Primer
09065 Grey Liner
Two parts primer, three parts grey liner, one drop of water to improve flow.
^Not to be outdone, our fearless minotaur jumps into the fray as well, although somewhat lighter than the gnolls. Something about how a fox is thinking about going with a more "traditional" medium brown. Would have used brown liner, but, uhm, don't have that, so grey liner it is.
09108 Brush-on Primer
09065 Grey Liner
Three parts primer, two parts grey liner, one drop of water to improve flow.
^And since I just had to have him on my last order, here we have most of what I'll call our first leader, or even general of it all, 77376 Minotaur Demon Lord, partially test-fit. I ran out of time to get the mold lines on the other six parts, but I'll be working on that today. Goal is to have him assembled today, and quite possibly primered as well. I'm not quite certain as to precisely what colour I'll be going with on him, but for some reason an almost "aflame" reddish-coppery-orange with hints of brown in it come to mind.

Hi all, after much lurking I've decided to post some of my minis I technically posted once before but I just realized looking at the old post that it was over a year ago!
I'm really going to have to pick up my painting rate given that another bones pledge is about to be delivered!
So I can definitely tell I like painting the bad guys better than the PC characters, probably due to spending too much time DMing. Anyway, here's some recent ones I painted. As always feedback is appreciated!
First a couple beastmen from the Warlord line:
How about a golem and some undead as tomb guardians? I diced up a skeleton into the base of the bone fiend too. You can kind of see the boot.
I have painted some character figures as well recently. Here's a few Elves with an Halfling. I need to work on my faces more though. Humanoid faces are so much flatter than monsters'. Anyone have any tips for varying humanoid flesh or adding details to faces that that sculp might not define well? Thanks! Much appreciated!
