Folks interested in offloading their sci-fi/modern based minis shoot me a PM when they arrive and what you are wanting for them. I'll find a use for them (Firefly, Deadlands, All Flesh Must Be Eaten, etc.).
I'll certainly take you up on that!

A taker! Woot! Shoot me a PM or email when the minis arrive and we'll work out a trade.

And now I need to learn how to paint...

One thing I have come to admire this Kickstarter for is it seems to be bringing a lot of people to the painting hobby!

Fortunately there are a LOT of tutorials on the Internet.

Everybody says that, but no one can point the good ones out...

Because

1) most of them are good
2) This subforum has loads of good recommendations alone. I like Dr. Faust's Painting Clinic and just about whatever I can find on Youtube.
3) We do not have time to preview each and every tutorial ever just to pick out what's the best for other people to watch. You wanna take the time to learn, you gotta take the time do the research yourself.
4) While I'm on the subject, discussions of mini painting in miniatures focused forums are also helpful, such as Privateer Press's Website or DakkaDakka (the latter are a slightly more volatile bunch mind, but good hobbyists).

Absolutely! I've gotten some good advice there myself.

Thanks,

I know that I have to do my own research, but you and the others just helped me by suggesting a few good starting places.

also, if you have the names of the mini you currently want to paint, there are usually a few sites that show step by step renditions, if you search painting and the mini name

Kaladrax looks very good.

If this was a dragon I would have got it but I can't imagine ever using a massive dracolich.

I must be nuts...I not only got Karadrax but the even more massive Nethrymaul! I've used a dracolich exactly once in 30 years of D&D!

oh well they will look pretty awesome once painted (in 2024!)


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

I never was going to put him on the table, I just thought it looked good in the artwork. Now I am real glad I bought him. This one will be wonderful.

I AM going to find some way to throw a dracolich at my players just because of this miniature.

Liberty's Edge

I had planned to use a dracolich as the BBEG in my current campaign. So he is perfect and I'll have him in time for the final battle.

On my phone so no link but there are some pics of the translucent bones up:

http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/46529-painting-transparent -bones-oh-yes-there-are-leds/


...where do we get these magic LED bases at?

The Exchange RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, Contributor

Wow, glad I picked up a couple extras.

@ shifty

I drilled out the bottom of an LED tea light. It was a bit fat under, but looks cool.

Also, consider the DIY approach (aka throwies) which might yield a slightly lower profile look (but no switch). You can skip the magnets with minis ;)


Nice stuff, thanks Dennis!

Nice big shot of nethyrmaul's head. Looking fantastic so far.

And now the body WIP:

So glad I looked at all the optinals and just said 'Yes please'.

I'd be spitting by now otherwise!

I'm sort-of regretting passing up on the big guy, but... I honestly have no idea what I'd ever do with him. He would be a decoration at best and I'd be afraid to paint him until I got improved my skills to a huge extent. As it is, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with Cthulu and I'm in a campaign where we're doing cthulu-esque type encounters.

Looks cool but I have no regrets, I chose minis I'm likely to use.

With infinite money I'd have bought everything but hey...

The painters are going to love this one though.

RPG Superstar 2010 Top 32 , Star Voter 2013

Nethyrmaul looks great, but I'm happy with getting Kaladrax for $10 instead.

If only Nethy weren't undead...

I find the very idea that Cthulu should ever be on a battle map to be very odd. ;)

I've actually got plans for both Kaladrax andNethyrmaul ... mwahahahahahaaaaaaaa

To the folks I game with, sorry y'all... ;)

Its a good sub for the Star Spawn though. I ordered 2.


Old reply, but Reaper will be releasing their updated Bones Learn to Paint Kits SOON. FRPGames has a pre-order for $20.

If you have unwanted Bones coming in your KS, see the Reaper forums for their KS trade thread.

Also, Reaper has RIGHT NOW their "12 Days of Christmas" promotion. Buy $35 of stuff on the Reaper site and get the day's promo figure. Unfortunately, the only Learn to Paint Kits on Reaper is Intermediate Skin Tones.

Unboxing video of the vampire pledge.

Scarab Sages Reaper Miniatures

I look so tired in that video... *sigh*

Ed had suggested that I open everything, until I reminded him that when Michael and I opened the baggies inside to glue them to the black runner in the opening crawl, it took the two of us about 45 minutes, and as impressive as that is, nobody wanted to see a 45 minute video of me cutting open bags.


P.S. that video was awesome...especially the outtakes at the end :)

Now I'm super duper excited for March. (even more so than I already WAS)


Oh dear GOD what am I going to DO with all those minis?!?!?!

I suppose I'll just have to find out :)


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

I love the video. That is just too cool.

BRING ON THE WHITE HORDE!!!

It'll be a refreshing change from the bare metal horde I have now.

Agreed. I'll have to finally learn how to paint. Luckily, I'll have at least one or two dozen minis I don't care about to practice on, mixed in with the majority that I don't want to ruin.

This is actually an excellent point. I have long been wanting to work on my speed painting, or even just my general speed of painting. I feel that I am very slow at the moment, and if I'm ever going to paint a couple of hundred minis, I'm going to need to learn to go a bit faster.

One thing I'm wondering about is whether the Bones minis are safe to clean using Simple Green cleaner. That stuff works wonders on metal mins: dump the minis in a jar with some concentrated Simple Green mixed with water, let it sit for a few days and voila, clean mini.
But I'm worried it will break down the plastic. Does anyone have experience with this?


Someone on the Reaper forums actually put a Bones mini into a jar of Simple Green for a couple of weeks once and it didn't do a thing to the plastic, just stripped it like normal. They are perfectly safe!


So I can go ahead and be as anal-retentive and perfectionist in painting my Bones as I have been in painting my metal minis. I'm not sure this is good news :)

Silver Crusade

I'm not worried about speed of painting. I just need to learn how to paint them in general, since I've never painted minis. When they arrive, I'll check the video links in this thread, then head to the local store for painting supplies.

@Fromper - you could also check out our tutorials and how-to's on the Reaper Forums. We're very helpful with teaching newcomers to the hobby over there.

Hey Bryan - speaking of that ...

There is a thread started in the the PaizoCon forums about this, but it would be great if you guys would do a couple How To Paint clinics at PaizoCon geared specifically to the Bones minis.

That's a great idea. Now that I live in the midwest, I'm planning to hit GenCon for the first time next year, and I'd attend something like that if you did it there.

Scarab Sages Reaper Miniatures

We are still working out the details of our PaizoCon presence. I am sure we'd love to do a Bones class, and I know that we will have Bones at the Paint and Take with instructors there.

I'll keep you guys posted.

Liberty's Edge

I forget - when do our giant pile 'o minis and such arrive?

Sovereign Court

Sometime in march.

Slow pan of the vampire pledge minis.

RPG Superstar 2010 Top 32 , Star Voter 2013

Oooo. That's good stuff, Robert. I don't even see a post about this on Reaper's board.

Nice, high-quality, and slow. You can pause this and see a lot of detail.

Those vermin minis are smaller than I thought they'd be.

The Exchange RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, Contributor

What was there, 13,000 boxes? Are you getting some extra help to get that much merchandise out the door? I can see it taking two weeks+ just to sort and ship this much stuff for a small crew.

Once again HOLY CRAP that's an awesome dragon! I so can not wait to get my little mitts on this, and my Pathfinder group will be hatin' me forever for it.

Beautiful, beautiful. March can't come quick enough.
