Skull and Hoof

OK... time for round two on the rebased undead Reaper cavalry.  This was the second figure that was used in the How to Paint Your Skeletons video.

It's great to see them on the new bases.  I always wanted to see what they would look like on a wider, more expansive base, so this is very fun!

I added a few more skulls to the base as well, which are from Secret Weapon Miniatures!

He's also here:

A Dynamite Lady

As you all know, my obsession for nearly two years has been finding all the new manufacturers who are creating so many spectacular figures for us lucky painters!

That list continues to grow by leaps and bounds, and soon Magic Reality Miniatures will be in person on this painting table as well.  I have some preview images for you here, starting with one Dynamite Lady!!

There are going to be a lot of fun details to render on this 32mm figure.  Better yet, I don't even have to sculpt my own gears for her to stand on!  It really completes the composition.

This is the official website:

I think the face and filligre will be the two essential elements of this piece as I paint it.

I'm going to have to try to get some grease/oil effects in the mechanisms here.  Perhaps mixing Secret Weapon water effects with sewer water will give it that dirty amber shade, with a touch of glossiness and suspended particles.

Each of these concept art pieces has some fun color ideas, but I think I like the challenge of the browns and tans of the image on the left.

So, when the figures arrive from across the sea, I will show you the Unboxing as well.

Magic Reality Miniatures plan to maintain a regular release schedule, with new figures appearing for us very frequently.  Sounds great to me!!!!
