  1. My 1st two minis from Bones 3, very basic paint jobs nothing fancy.
  2. No fancy photos currently of these guys. The quilting on their bracers and belts I decided to paint like dragon scales since giants and dragons have such a long-standing hatred for one another, at least in D&D lore. I love these bigger sculpts!
  3. So, not having painted for a year or so, I was happy to have an excuse with the arrival of Bones 3 to get back into it. After a brief warm-up/practice run on a female cleric-figure, I had a go at Goremaw, whom I decided to do as a fiendish purple worm (purple hues, tinged with red). I love the sculpt and am decently satisfied with how it came out.
  4. Posted this on FB but wanted to share it here with those that do not do the social thing. My 7 year old daughter worked on this today while I messed with my LTPK 1 a bit more so I can try to finish it up.
  5. BEHOLD! GOREMAW! Done as a classic purple worm from D&D. My favorite mini in Bones 3!
  6. So this one is not my best work. It was very frustrating to paint. I recommend painting before assembly but that will only help marginally. Still debating on whether to put it on a base or not.. I likely wont...
  7. Some Notes. that is a lot of hippo skin, he is about the size of the giants. I need to keep blending. dead grass skirt is boring, so he dyed it bright green that pumpkin on his belt would make a normal sized jack-o-lantern, but I should get Forescale in there.
  8. My inaugural Bones 3 paint, the Iron Golem (menacing Sir Forscale that I got from either a paint-and-take at PAX or a learn-to-paint kit, can't remember which). I'm not sure it really comes out in the picture, but I started with black/gray zenithal priming layers, airbrushed a not-too-thick layer of a bright metallic over it, dark wash, and then heavily shaded it with pure black glazes (there's supposed to be some left/right shading with the glazes, but it doesn't show well in the pictures I don't think). Then touched all the gouges with the metallic again, and painted the optics and vents with red and orange, on the assumption that iron golems are powered by some kind of eldritch furnace internally. (Sir Forscale was splashed with whatever bright primary color was close at hand, like you do when you're a complete noob at a paint-and-take, and I hope I got the right SKU from the list that came with my shipment.)
  9. So here are my hobgoblins. Complete with weapon swaps from the basic weapon set for the commander and from armory of death and vice for the berserker. Detail on the commander's face was a little shallow but I made do.
  10. I did this wraith while waiting for the hobs to dry. I think she turned out pretty well. She also served as a waste paint receptacle for all the left over blue for the commander's cape Been trying out uploading these from my wife's iPad. It's much faster but it means I can't trim the photo's so I might come back and do that later.
  11. Earlier this week I got my hands on a set of bones 3 mythos cultists. I'm not really that into cthulhu, but I do love a crazy looking cult. So I went with purple robes with bronze weapons, and painted the faces as masks. Not really sure if they were meant to be masks, but I think it worked.
  12. I needed a peacekeeper (think paramilitary wasteland cops) in a suit of powered armor holding a blast hammer for my warband in the post apocalyptic skirmish game "this is not a test". The corsair was a good fit so I used the warhammer from one of the weapon sprues and Wild West Sophie's sheriffs star base as a shield, the head is an alternate from a peacekeeper mini. Lots of fun to paint the corsairs are great minis. Hope you like him ;)
  13. I managed to find a bit of brush time and did these guys up just in time for my regular RPG session. Nothing too fancy, and I did rush the stitch golems a bit. I had fun with the flesh golem and making him look cobbled together from spare parts a bit. The Iron Golem OSL I would like some advice on. I got a look I am happy with on the head, but nowhere else. Since it is for tabletop I will settle for now but I would like some feedback to improve. Thanks.
  14. The following is going to be an EXPERIMENT! Please do try this at home, because I'm not a licensed professional and totally feel no obligation to warn you away from doing awesome things. My goal is to complete these 5 figures, from start to finish, within 48 hours. Whether I will succeed or not remains to be seen. It's more of a "Hey, let's see if I can paint humanoid figures quickly," and I work best with a deadline, artificial or not. Here are my 5 victims: 89009 Merisiel, Iconic Rogue (Tipsy) 89024 Holy Vindicator (Trunk SlamChest) 77480 Durok, Dwarf Ranger (Balin) 77440 Masumi, Demon Hunter (Tsunami) 77320 Galadanoth, Elf Sniper (Elrohir) Group shot: That's totally not DDS2 in the background, I don't know what you're talking about. Pay no attention to that at all, totally not relevant. So, I'll make this post my timestamp (12:00 PM PST), and away we go! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  15. I passed on the Mythos set (not a fan of the whole Lovecraft thing), but it looks like the overstock will be available soon (along with the other sets), and I noticed the price seemed low: http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Previews Is $50 right for it? Or will it be $80 like the others?
  16. My first transparent mini: I wanted to try painting one of the new invisible heroes from Bones III the other day. This is super simple paint job where I first painted the base, then masked it with a solid coat of Brown Liner for opacity. After that, I quickly painted the wizard with a single coat of a mixture of: 3 drops RMS Gloss Sealer 2 drops RMS Flow Improver 1 drop RMS Wash Medium 1 drop Liquitex Phthalo Blue After waiting a day (I was worried the ink might leach out of the sealer or something if I tried to work with it too soon), I painted the exterior of the base with Rainy Gray, followed by a coat of Brown Liner magic wash. To finish, I sealed the entire figure with a coat of Gloss Sealer, followed by a second coat of Gloss on the wizard and a coat of Brush-on Sealer on the base. The result was a very blue, almost candy-like mini. I'm happy with the result, but I'm thinking of pushing back the ink next time by at least half to get a lighter tint. The wash went on pretty well, but I might also try increasing the viscosity just a bit by upping the ratio of Gloss Sealer. Overall, a fun and easy paint job.
  17. Now that I've finished the Frost Giants I'm moving onto something a bit warmer, Fire Giants. Currently I've boiled, primed, and base coated skin on all 5. Several will probably need an additional skin coat but so far so good. Pictures in spoiler.
  18. So, I freaked out when I saw the green of Mal'adrakar... what... two years ago? I haven't been paining in several years for a few different reasons. For the last several years things have been up in the air, and I need to be in a certain 'head space' to calm down and put brush to paint for any considerable amount of time. I'm super glad that I've gotten the painting bug back in time to paint this one up. I did a LONG WIP post of Kyra and Lavarath many years ago, and I was hoping to followup with something similar. That one was a long weekend when I had the flu... This one I'm recovering from surgery, so I might be able to get some progress done over the next few weeks? I mean, it's a little bigger, so maybe a little progress? I think that base on Lavarath is a little deceiving... Lets try this: Okay... I'll admit it. I feel out of my depth here. This is one INTIMIDATING 'miniature'. It's bigger than anything I've ever painted... except for my garage, but that didn't have a lot of details. I know how I want to go... old school 'Tiamat' all the way... 5 heads, 5 colors... I really want to do some airbrushing on it, but I'm afraid to screw it up. My first step is priming it, and I'll be using colored primers.... I've got them, so why not, right? I primed the body in red, then test fit the heads and wings. I threw in the 6-sider for scale again because OMG this thing is HUGE. Now, I've been looking at pictures of Tiamat since I was a kid... yes, I watched the damn cartoon, and yes I'm THAT old. While looking for photo references my eye kept going back to this image: I especially liked the fade from black, to red, and out to the various heads. I wanted to recreate that! I decided to start early, and go for that 'fade' from the get go... with more colored primer. So, I wrapped up my primed miniature to minimize splatter and overspray, and went to town Then, I sprayed the heads... one green, one blue, one black... and the last one, I just washed with GM 'Nuln Oil'. And, that's roughly a weekends work. With drying time, multiple pieces and coats, and all the damn yard-work that got in the way, I think that I made some decent progress! I'll update this thread as I make more progress. This is going to be a LONG one, ya'll!
  19. @LeonR344 @LittleBluberry Had asked about doing weapon swaps with the new bones weapon packs. So I thought I've never really done one before either but I thought I'd offer up my bones for science in a how to / WIP. I've never done a WIP before so bear with me,and here we go.
  20. Next up to play is the Manticor. I found a pic that I think I will use as inspiration My work so far Just primer coats. Used grey liner for the rock and brown liner for the Manticor On a side note anyone tell me what this is? It will likely be my next victim.
  21. As the shipwreck golem is almost finished I thought I would move on to the brain. It has quiet a footprint so I went with a large base with an apocalyptic feel so here's what I got so far. Vinyl tile is wonderous for road sections
  22. I just realized, I had posted in randomness that this guy was the first bones 3 mini I painted, but I forgot to post pictures. So here is a little blue power armor.
  23. My first Bones 3 paint job is also one of the ones I was most anticipating. It's not quite done, since I have to touch up some of the little stones on the ground, but I'm basically calling it done. I've read that you shouldn't overdo the static grass, but I didn't really know what else to put in it and I didn't want to leave too much bare "broccoli base." Overall, I'm not too unhappy with how it turned out, given my level of ability. Oh, on this note... I've got some "flower stuff" which is okay, but I don't love it. It does have lots of nice little yellow bits. You can see these clumped up in the bottom picture. I'm wondering if people can recommend a good "spray glue" or something to that effect, so that I can just spray a light coating of clue in some places, and then sprinkle the yellow bits. I'm looking for a more spread out "wildflowers" effect, since I think the clumps are too much.
  24. I decided to be traditional and go for a purple worm. Since I will be needing one for a future game and lets face it. The DDM one is just meh. Here is some comparison shots of Goremaw and the theme I'm going for. I decided to prime him with Pokorny Paints: Black. Now this paint is not the best option for priming I still believe liner goes on much smoother. However, for big guys like this its not so bad. You may notice a few spots that didn't get coverage. That seem to be common with this paint so you have to watch out for those if you decide to use this stuff. I will go hunting for said spots with a smaller brush as I want to ensure completely coverage.
  25. Got some paint on one of my Bones 3 minis. This is one of the ogre trio. Just phone pics, so I apologize if they look gods-awful. He looks wet because he has a layer of gloss sealer on him. I leant out my matte sealer and I don't have it back yet. When I do, he'll get a coat of that to knock the sheen down. He's destined for the tabletop (as are all my minis really).
