  1. Hi guys. I worked at dry brushing the body of this frost wyrm last night and I've got that to a point that I like I think. Since this is my stand in for a D&D Remorhaz, what i"m wanting to do is to paint the heated effect on the inside of the frill on its back. As a reference, the picture at this link is the sort of effect I want to go for: http://forum.reapermini.com/uploads/monthly_03_2015/post-3328-0-23417000-1425746221.jpg As far as paint colours go, I do have the fire triad MSP paints (Fire red, Phoenix red and Fire Orange). unfortunately this doesn't include a shade of yellow for part of the brighter effect. My questions are: 1. What would be the best way to go about replicating this effect (i.e. order of painting)? 2. The only yellow paints I have are the Pale Saffron from my Reaper Learn to Paint Core Skills kit and Averlund Sunset by Citadel (which IMO seems a bit too dark of a shade). Would the pale saffron work for this?
  2. lol. I'm pleased that he turned out looking nice & fierce. I went at the facial details as carefully as i could and I recently got a new set of brushes that came with varying sizes of detail brushes so that helped.
  3. This guy was several hours' work, finished him up earlier this evening! I may end up updating the pictures at some point, I'm still trying to figure out the optimal settings on the camera I used.
  4. very interesting. do you know of a youtube video I might watch that uses this technique?

    I can be patient (I think lol). Looks like the stuff will be worth the wait. I really am looking forward to seeing what else will be in it besides the three large ones they've already shown

    I've noticed a few posts in this thread from people saying they're still waiting for their Bones III Kickstarter orders.. There any truth to that? I'd like to think the items would be shipped within a reasonable amount of time once the campaign ends and that one was 2 years ago from what I've seen.
  7. I actually remembered seeing a post about Bones I and found the official post from July 6. It's next month!

    I only just got into painting a few months ago with the core skills learn to paint kit. I'm SO looking forward to this!
  9. Ahh ok I'll keep an eye out. How often do they do the Bones kickstarters?
  10. Thanks! I'm super pleased with how he turned out given how little time he took. I did everything except the hilt of his sword inside of a couple hours on the long weekend Monday 2 weeks ago and needed to borrow the gold for the hilt at the weekly miniature painting social night I go to on Fridays.
  11. That's pretty sweet. I was just looking on the store and was wondering is the ogre clubber only available in pewter? I didn't see a bones version.
  12. That's pretty awesome! How did you do the leather? I have this mini but haven't taken a shot at painting her yet
  13. Finished this guy a little over a week ago. Took almost no time compared to my previous figures and I've got a better setup figured out for taking pictures now!
  14. Thanks! The next one is actually almost done too I was just missing the colour I want for the weapon hilt. Hoping to have it done Friday night and then I'll take photos and share them. The organiser of the painting social night I've been going to has been impressed with my progress so far
  15. Oh man did this guy ever take a long time. Between struggling with finding a decent colouring and the fact that unlike most gnolls his body isn't at all furred outside of his mane, I found myself starting over and fixing a bunch of stuff as I went along. But for the most part I think I'm pleased with how he turned out! 4th mini done.
