28mm – Reaper Bones & Warlord Games – KoW Kingdoms of Men – General on Winged Beast

To end for today, a work i ended a couple of months ago, but never found time to take pictures. It’s a Reaper bones dragon, over a LOTR ruins reworked, raided by a Warlord Games cavalry man from their ECW range. Most of the work here was done by airbrush, except final lights and shadows and the rider figure.
He’s part of KoW army, kingdoms of men, in fact, he is the general of the army. Hope he will perform well in the battle.
I enjoyed a lot doing this, first of all, because it’s for me and not commissioned, second because it’s another try to improve my airbrush usage, and last one because i like it, and like how dangerous can be on a KoW battle.
The Reaper dragon it’s a nice piece, cheap, very cheap for his size.

The September Issue (Dwarves).

Hi Folks, long time without publish anything there. I should remedy it.
I have literally thousand’s figures over the paint table. Everything started and just a few ended. Hope to start to finish some large parts soon. While this happen i already ended some single pieces, and eclectic mix, with a common factor, all are intended to play the fantasy game Kings of War, which is successfully running his second edition now.

First, i painted a few Dwarves for a friend who play with them. By one side i painted 3 females dwarves, who are part of larger unit, their captains. These figures are from the Tale of War (old) range.  They are nice sculpted, except, maybe, the faces. The pictures of the full units are not mine, are from the owner, you can follow all his work here (Spanish language)

And second i painted 2 single male figures, from the Reaper Bones range, who will act as Stone Priests in the game. I enjoyed painting the left ones, even if it’s Bones, it’s a nice figure, with and overall good presence. I already talk about Bones in the past, it’s not best material to paint, as well as it present less detail than their metal counterparts, but they are cheaper, very cheap indeed, so they always are an option to don’t waste your pocket and get what you want. Price/Quality rate make them very attractive.
Left one is code 77220: Herryk, Dwarf Cleric which also haves metal counterpart, while right ones is 77383: Barden Barrelstrap This is one will be released in October..

28mm – Reaper Miniatures – Custom HeroQuest Heroes.

Custom HeroQuest Heroes

A friend usually plays this excellent board game (Heroquest) with his two ten years daughters. As they liked my painted miniatures i started to look for a small gift for them. First i was trying to acquire the original figures from the game, but.. uhh. they are quite expensive, even if there are a lot and they aren’t very good neither special figures. So then i started to look up for a dwarf, a mage, a barbarian and an elf in other brands.
I had pending to buy some Reaper miniatures for my own, so i took a look over his extensive range and soon i found what i was looking for.

Three of them are Reaper Bones (Except Barbarian), a very cheap range cast in a quite bendable plastic, not the best texture for paint, neither material, but for sure the cheaper one you will find around. Mage works pretty well, his stick was bended, as well as the elf sword, but a few seconds in boiling water (in a glass in the microwave), and it took a good position. I enjoyed a lot making the parchment’s details, and all areas are quite well detailed. Dwarf and over more, Elf, were not so easy to paint. In some areas detail is a bit confused, you are not very sure about what are you painting, and some details are very superficial. For example the Peacock in elf’s shield have some nice patterns everywhere.. but after prime and a base coat, neither a wash reveal them.
I read some forums before paint the Bones ones, some people seems to have problems priming this kind of miniatures. I must way it was fine to me. I primed them with white (Citadel) primer.
Barbarian is a metal cast figure, and it’s an excellent ones.

An the end, the little customers are happy with his present, so me too.

One last note, with my shipping, Reaper send a free sample paint bottle, from a brand i never tried before, called Master Series Paints (the full range is available in the Reaper store), and i must admit i like this paint.
