    Bones adventuring party

    I started a new D&D campaign, and started painting minis for the party. Luckily, I found minis for everyone in my big box of Bones so I didn't have to do too much searching. So far I have three of five finished. First up is the human cleric, 77089: Halbarand, Cleric. I stole the basic colour scheme from another cleric posted here by Hawker: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/57068-77089-halbarand-cleric/ Even though it pales in comparison, I am pretty happy with the white/gold armour look. Next up is the tiefling warlock, 77149: Damien, Hellborn Wizard. I didn't have a scheme in mind for him, except for the red skin and I wanted to make give the jacket a denim look. Because the jacket was so large, I decided to do the inside a darker shade than the outside for some contrast. Even though there isn't a lot of high/low lighting on the jacket, I like how it looks. The hair turned out quite good, better than it appears in the pics. Finally, the rock gnome wizard, 77166: Balto Burrowell, Gnome Wizard. Again no scheme going in, other than the player wanted him to be a redhead. I like the way the clothes turned out, but I definitely should have more contrast in the hair. It also could have been a little redder. The bases are all just black ink over a grey base for speed, but it nicely highlight's Sandra Garrity's signature on this guy. I still have to do an elven ranger and a human rogue. Hopefully I'll have them done for next week's game.
  4. So here is the Wip for my Fall Exchange.... I took a lot of pictures to ask for advice and opinions from a pair of Forumites*, and posted them on Photobucket. So I needed to paint my exchange figure with only 1 bottle each of Red, Blue, Black, and White. Everything else I had free run of the paints... For the Golem, who was the Exchange piece, I used Scale 75 Cantabric Blue, and Blood Red, as well as VMC Black and White. I had just gotten my new Raphael and DaVinci brushes, and started using a wet palette when this began, and Thank the Gods of Paint that I had! These were the inspirational pics I used. The plan was that the torso of the Golem would be Red, the hands, feet, and head would be Blue, and the colors would fade through purple on the limbs. I then mixed the blue and red at a 1-3 ratio, and it was so dark that I ended up adding white to the mix. Ithen painted the middle parts of the limbs. I added a little white to the paints and tried to bring out the 'faceting' on the figure and then I started carefully glazing the blue from the middle of the limbs to the extremities, and then the red from the middle toward the torso. (There are 40+ pics, so link to photobucket) After the many many many glazes were done, I sprayed everything with dullcote 2 or 3 times, as I was happy with what I had achieved, and wanted to be able to wash out any forthcoming errors. And there were errors! I started at the feet, trying to edge every facet with white, as in the inspiration pics above, and was constantly wiping away errors, cursing at myself, etc and moving on... Finally, after 4+ hours, this is what I had: Somewhere in there I had done the eyes and the teeth.... That's how he looked when I was done with him, less basing. Funny thing was, I never even opened the Black paint! All shading was done by using the red on the blue, and the blue on the red! I had also been working on Balto, but that was a relatively normal paint job, except for the fact that I got to go crazy with all the new Scale 75 paints I had just gotten. The Pillar of Evil was a Bones piece I got at The Complete Strategist, (the BEST Game Shop in Manhattan! ) as I was running out of time, and needed something for the golem to be smashing.... That was also a normal style paint job, lots of greys and dry brushing.... Anyway, I planned from the beginning to base them both on pieces of slate, as I had used it before for a dragon, and liked the look. So the Golem and Gnome got based... (Link to Photobucket) I planned out the diorama, and then started execution. The holes for the bases were carved out of the stained wooden base, and green stuff was applied all over the rest, with more bits of slate pushed into it, being careful to not fill in the holes! (Pics when I get home) I'm home... Then painting with Desert Yellow, magnets installed, and washers glued into mini bases. Tufts of Silflor Grasses scattered about, and finally the whole thing was covered with white glue then sand. So there you have it, how I did what I did. Any questions, comments cheerfully accepted! 8) George * Take a bow Vegascat, and especially our own resident Barbarian, Ub3r_N3rd! Poor Ub3r, he must have gotten 2 or 3 pms a day from an over anxious drow about how to do this, or how does that look, or... He was the soul of tact, and a fountain of knowledge! Couldn't have done it without you! G Edited to add more pics... added link to show off

    Fall Exchange for Leopardpixie

    Hey Folks! I drew Leopardpixie as my person to paint for, and she put me so far out of my comfort zone that I have no words to describe... From her 'In Brief' Do you have a particular color scheme in mind? Lets make this interesting - challenge your self and use only blue, black, white and red (ONLY) challenge your color mixing abilities. and this means Only 1 bottle of each color, not multi bottles of various reds / blues etc... Now I am the type that buys their paint in 'Triads" long before Reaper started selling them that way, as I like having the same color to go back to when I have to fix mistakes. Even with a recipe, I still wouldn't be able to make exact matches.... So I paniced for an hour until I got home... So I dug through the pile of lead, and came up with the Crystal Golem. As I looked at it, I thought maybe I could get away with what she wanted with this mini... I also decided to do a diorama, which is where Balto Burrowell, and the Pillar of Evil, came in. The Diorama title in my mind was always "Golem Smash!", as Balto is telling his creation to do something about the item of Evil he has come across... I should have put a plate on the base saying that... Many PMs to Ub3r later here is what I sent: The Diorama The Golem: The Gnome: Also some pics of the packaging: The inner box: the last thing into the box: Better pic--- The bases all have washers in them, and the diorama has Rare Earth Magnets in it to hold minis in place, but allow them to be used in games as well. (Next time I will find bases with vertical sides for this....) So many thanks go out to Ub3r_N3rd for all the advice and patience! Thanks for Looking! 8) George Retro-Active WiP here. Going to get another pair of these guys for myself.... Edited to add more pics and link to WiP
  6. The library is completed! This grew into a bigger project than I planned. It all started with Jolie. Then I searched for more miniatures for a library and I found some more then expected, so I needed a bigger diorama. Then came the idea to make a large globe as a centerpiece. It was a lot of work to make all the details. There are over 300 books in the diorama. It was also a lot of fun to do. There is a wip topic here The diorama is entered in the banalicious 2 competition on the Massive Voodoo blog. I an happy how it turned out, for me it has the right level of detail for busy day at the library.
