I’ve built up quite a large collection of half-done miniatures so I’m trying to knock out a bunch of them. I think I started this over 2 years ago, although all I did was a wash over white. I went back to white and started over, but didn’t spend that much time – a wash, then drybrush stone colors over it. (should have done a stone base coat instead of white). Then a little bit of colors with the flower and done.
I haven’t been slacking off in the painting department, I promise! I have a few more [units] that need to be posted, once I bother to take pictures.
But in the meantime, here is Goremaw, from Reaper Bones 3. I painted her up in my Legion of Everblight colors – I like to think this is the adult form of the Hellmouth. Lots of dry brushing and wet blending since I didn’t want to take forever. The detail isn’t so great on the mini, but it doesn’t really matter since this is a “shock and awe” piece, not an “intricate detail” one.
The last thing you’ll ever see…
Momma and baby…
I started painting this pair quite some time ago, putting into practice some of the technique I learned in Jen Greenwald’s class on painting whites. I finally put the finishing touches on them last night. Now I want to play a cool psychic character. I don’t even know if they get familiars or anything.

I picked this guy up at ReaperCon a few years ago, got him to about 90% then left him for a while. I wanted to do NMM on the gun barrels, but decided that enough was enough and finished him while on vacation last month.
My favorite part is the crazy eyes. Usually black dot in white is wrong, but here it’s right 🙂

I fished this cute girl out of the Box o’ Goodwill from the Reaper forums, so it’s only right that she make her way back to another forum member as an exchange mini for Secret Sophie 2016. Tricksay wanted to receive “open to anything”; I love when people pick that, because I can just paint whatever I feel like. Thanks to Bonwirn for giving me a bunch of Hirst Arts blocks to make the diorama out of.
After I took these pictures I realized: OMG, you can’t even see the rear half that I spent so much time on. Despite the chance of ruining the mini, I carefully drilled a magnet hole through the bottom of the base so she can be removed. I threw in a gaming base as well for picture taking purposes, and just in case Tricksay ever wants to use her in a game. I was joking with my friends at paint day that “no, those are her adventuring clothes; convenient necklace, weird skirt-thong and all.”
