    Because I need Baba-Yaga's Treehouse of Woe
  2. 25 points
    The first miniature I have painted after opening Bones 3 box that arrived one week ago. Also, my first reaper miniature I would like to share. I must admit that I made a very poor job on the mould lines though and the paint job isn't as neat as I would like to... More pictures: http://zgielk.blogspot.com/2017/08/na-bezrybiu-i-smok-ryba.html

    So, here are two miniatures I just got done painting and basing last night. I ended up painting these two as well as another figure (front with a link for nudity) at the same time because I was starting out with the same skin colors, beginning with Tanned Skin. One thing I did with the female pirate's sword and metal was I used Ashen Blue as my base color, then used deeper blues, then dark elf skin and shadow, then black, and worked upwards with lighter greys and finally white. With the bases, which I also do very simply, I did the pirate bases starting with a base of blonde hair, then terran khaki. The thought was to make sand, but who knows how well that worked out. Here is the link to the third miniature: http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:02-806_flute8.JPG And here is the photo this figure came from: And a question, one of the doubts I had was about the female pirate, should I have lightened her eyebrows?

    Apparently my light box set up creates some specular reflections because these boys are not so shiny in normal lights. Anyhow, I really like these old school, Bob Olley ogres. I hope you do too.

    Struggling to paint these... my first thought had been to wash them lightly to pop the details, but I've had a lot of trouble getting the wash to stick. I like the result in this instance, but I can't help but feel like they're messy. They also seem a challenge to photograph! I guess the side-effect of making them seem unreal is that the unreality may also confuse image processors :-)

    A friend who had not painted anything in a while came to visit for a week. While the wives an kids were off entertaining themselves, I offered a mini from the bones 2 core grab-bag to try his hand. He picked one that reminded him of the Old D&D cartoon, and got as far as base-coating. His paints had long since dried out, so he left it here. As I "Must Paint All the Things!" I finished it up, the shield came out as one of my best freehand designs. I also took an indirect suggestion from a poster in the paint my bones facebook group, and added another highlight to the shield.

    Baba Yaga's Treehouse of Woe would be a horrible show for children. Or maybe awesome. I'm undecided now that I think about it.

    Shhh.... No no... Shhh... Just don't. How about them minis?!? Hua??? So looking forward to the next reveal. I could really use something especially non-political and fun right now.

    When I look away from the forums for a few hours ... So. Much. Happens. Okay, I just figured out (after a search) that this is the MST3K guys. Darn you!! Darn you all to heck with a ball of pink yarn for adding this temptation to my procrastination muscle! Good Omens was my introduction to Pratchett, and still the best. Yes! Dig it up! (You know, after you're feeling better, of course.) For no good reason, I now imagine you as a mashup superhero of Logan and Professor X. Did you ever know you're my hero? (I apologise if that brings on a Whitney Houston earworm.) I believe in you! And your regenerative powers. And, your psychic abilities. You're only under psychic attack, because you're otherwise unbeatable. Shake it off! On a more serious note, I highly recommend mindfulness meditation as preventive medicine for helping tame brain weasels and their various ilk. Also, if it lasts, see someone professional. That flavor of broccoli is not good to ignore. Ah! Your cabbages!! Definitely, though, I agree with eating at regular intervals. So, so much better. Ineffable genius. Recommend to anyone who hasn't read it. And, also, to everyone who has. Yay for scary sibling victory! Do tell! Yay!!

    The package arrived somewhat battered but everything inside was intact. So happy ending! I have emailed Reaper to let them know.

    And after much consideration, I have removed these items from the Pcktlnt box: I agonized over the dragon... but it was necessary to remove it to make room for all the OTHER stuff I had to put IN there to make up for the pulls.... And, ghod help us, it was Mirliton... A variety of items have been added, notably a great many blisters and some loose figures. Durned if I could find much in the way of Bones I wanted to part with, but I have metal left over from the dawn of time...

    This might be my favorite mini so far! Thanks for pointing it out!

    I'd love to see a few more characters like Vatanis someday. This guy kinda rocks. It would be nice to get a small group add-on of Tieflings, Tobaxi or any other hard to find player races. I'm not really into villager minis but this guy definitely helps the Dreadmere set look appealing.

    You need somebody to help your boyfriend eat all your cheese? I'm sorry, but I'm not that kind of guy.

    And now I want chicken strips. I'm not sure if I should hate you guys or love you more for this.... I've always found the lack of comprehension for 'model arrives in pieces' models to be kind of .. um.. well, inexplicable. I was momentarily baffled when I got Abysilonia, because she's a million or so tiny pieces. Then I shrugged and got out the glue and went to work, because .. what /else/ are you going to do? It's in pieces, you assemble it. But, as I must frequently remind myself, am weird. A thing is in pieces? Must be a puzzle! is my standard reaction to a freshly purchased thing does not have obviously broken parts.

    bulette, Otyugh and i think slaad already have counterparts in Bones, i think? (Not that more would be a bad thing!)

    Alright I ponied up for the tree when that came up. All you guys who were excited by the hut it's your turn now.

    A little late, but a side note about models needing assembly. I was looking for an orc and was eyeing Thelgar. I noticed the Amazon reviews for him were only 3 stars. I thought that was odd since I think it's an awesome sculpt, so I investigated. Turns out there are 2 one star reviews, and one of them simply says, "He arrived with his hands and weapon detached, is he broken or something?!" (Not actually a direct quote, but close.) I think it's important to keep in mind that enthusiasts are a rare, kooky but lovely breed, and most people just want to buy a mini, maybe slap some paint on it, and go play with it.

    And a small update - well more or less. Applied most of the colours, some shadows and highlights. I like the outcome so far, though I am a bit disappointed some parts of the paintjob came out too blotchy for my liking. I also made some mistakes on the face I cannot correct anymore without scraping colour from the figure and I don't think I wanna do that. But afar from that - well, already a good step forward. Got to correct some little unhappy accidents I made when drybrushing the hair and I am not entirely sure about the hair colour, but I think that's a topic I should worry about when I am awake again. For now, I like her. Gute Nacht!
