  1. Finished this awesome guy today. Gave him a coat of matte finish (wish it was more matte and less glossy) for a little extra protection. Gave the veins on the wings a odd color to have them stand out a bit.
  2. Thanks, I was thinking green, but see it all the time. I looked at my paints and thought.... what would look neat. I do wish the wash stuck in more spots but and still happy with the results.
  3. More progress, hoping to finish this guy tomorrow. Working on some dry brushing, and will do a wash possibly. I need to make a box to photograph minis in, the different angles change the color a lot.
  4. Here what I have so far on my Cthulhu. I'm not attempting the challenge. Just enjoying the day as I slowly paint him.
  5. Amazing job, I wanna play FF7 again.
  6. I like the pink coral for the brain. I am looking forward to the progress.
  7. For the base coat after I used a brush in sealer, I used over half a bottle of folk art paint. The for the rest of the colors so far is various paints from Reaper to GW. Bane that sounds like a blast for you and heck to pay for the players. LOL
  8. Some more done to it.
  9. That looks amazing.
  10. Amazing work, love the colors!
  11. Looks great.

    Thanks for the info, wish I had known about this when it was going on. Hoping on joining in on the next one.

    So are we still able to order the kick starter? Until I came back to the hobby I never heard of it. And the page showing it ended in 2015 throws me for a loop. I'm trying another kick starter but interest in the bones one.
  14. Wonderful looking mini. Amazing sculpt and paint job.
  15. How do others carry their minis? For my Reaper and other brands I use a 6 tray tackle box. My 40K figures I use a different style case. I however I love the trusty tackle box. I disassembled mine and lined the trays with foam sheets.
  16. I'm not sure how long I've had this guy in the bottom of my tackle box. Here are a few pics of him.
  17. Finished up my old Ral Partha Mimics I purchased years ago. I painted the chest years ago, but been siting on these. The GW Nurgles are in the same boat. I still have a few more of them to paint. I included the first Nurgle I painted years ago for comparison. The mini's are a bit too shiny for my taste so I may brush on some matte varnish since the spray matte showed up shiny.
  18. This is my first completed Bones figure. Since spray primer is too high of a risk on ruining them and washing them didn't help the water bead up on some of my paint brands I opted for a brush on sealer that seams to work great. With this being a brain I wanted it to look gooey. So I just focused on it and did a single coat on the legs. I gave it a gooey look with gloss varnish.
  19. You could use a couple pieces of card stock or even a styrene sheet for the lid. It would give you the thickness you may be looking for.
  20. Thanks for the comments, I wish I had a couple more. They are nice and smooth sculpts.
  21. Very nice, I like the muddy look on the bottom of the cloak.
  22. Just getting back into collecting minis after a long break. My buddy talked me into picking up some Bones. So my first purchase was the World Breaker, a pirate, and a werewolf all from the bones line. When I was collecting before I mostly collected metal. I did buy some plastic GW skeletons just to have a bunch on hand. I never really liked the plastic, I liked the weight and feel of the metal. My questions are how well do Bones hold up? With all the flexing does paint fall off easier? Do they start losing form after a while or storage in a warm area like an attic? If I wanted to mod one would the reaper weapon packs weigh too much causing it to lose form? Thank you for any input.
  23. Seeing this guy painted has me wanting one now. I agree with the purple and gold, love the colors
  24. Looks awesome!
  25. Well I have successfully remov d the primer. I didn't soak the World Breaker since I'm unaware of the effects of mean green on it. I started with the tail and sprayed a small spot and scrubbed it clean. There was no deforming so I continued to do it section by section. There are a couple small spots in indents I can not get out but the whole thing is much better now. So mean green and a stiff plastic brush did wonders. Not sure how it would handle on smaller miniatures.
