  1. Kev!'s 77366: Shadow Hound

    Howdy, Might as well stay on the translucent train... Spacebo, Kev!
  2. Kev!'s 77368 Shadow Demon

    Howdy, Not sure what inspired me to work on this. The model has been sitting in among my candidates for quite a while... Danke, Kev!
  3. Kev!'s 77321: Giant Cobra

    Howdy, Herpetologists agree... She slither down! Kev! P.S. Click the pic to examine the flaws in all their glory...
  4. 77514: Iron Golem

    I painted this guy a while ago, and as soon as it was previewed in the Kickstarter, I was reminded of Slade from the old Teen Titans cartoon. His design worked really well as a basis for the paint scheme here. The pictures were taken on the painting table, as I never really got around to taking some in the photo booth, unfortunately.
  5. Here is another semi WIP thread for another Bones 3 model. My youngest son had painted him in a nice coat of ultramarine blue and had left him. I then have the fun task of finishing it off to some reasonable level. So so after a couple of coats green and some dry brushing I got to this stage. I am actually really happy how this turned out. I am not sure I would have attempted the blue under the green, but it seems to work well. Anyway onto the base, didn't realise how much detail it had. As always comments welcome.
  6. Kev!'s 77511 Xiloxoch, Naga

    Howdy, I guess it's time to show this one... Thanks for the feedback, Kev! P.S. The pattern is inspired by the natural coloration of the coral snake.
  7. Kyphrixis as a Deep Dragon

    I finished this up right at Christmas to give to a friend as a gift. This is the first dragon I've ever painted (though I have been painting historical stuff for many, many years). It was certainly a learning experience, painting a dragon is not like painting a WW2 tank, and if I had been smart I would have done one for myself first as a test but time was of the essence and I was glad I finished it in time. I picked purple because its one of my friend's favorite colors, and was pleased to find there are actually purple dragons in fantasy, called Deep Dragons. I bought the Royal Purples triad from Reaper and used Imperial Purple as the main color and shaded and highlighted the scales with the Nightshade and Amethyst purples. The crest was painted with Coal Black from the holiday set before highlighting with the purples. The chest was a mix of Amethyst and Imperial purple. I added the blue gems on the chest late after seeing some other examples of Kyphrixis on these forums that had the gems painted. The wings in the photos are the third attempt at painting them, the first two versions I did not like. The first try was the base purple with a mottling of ivory. I was hoping to get a translucent look but it didn't work. Then I painted them Terran Khaki with the Ivory mottling to get a parchment look but that didn't look right either. I was going to repaint them in the base colors but wondered what they would like if I just covered the Khaki/Ivory with Army Painter Purple Tone. Two coats of the Purple Tone and I liked how it looked. I spray dullcoated him but the wings still have a bit a sheen from the Purple Tone. The rock base was painted charcoal then drybrushed with various greys and tans and the wood base is something I picked up at the craft store which was stained and varnished before the plastic base was glued on. I definitely learned a lot painting him and look forward to painting the rest of the dragons I got in Bones 3.
  8. Bones 3 Ogres and Command

    Got the ogres and ogre command in Bones 3 and decided to paint them all up at once so that they'd match. I call the regular ogres Huey, Dewey, and Louie due to their colors (I find a clear color delineation makes it easier to track them during games) and I really like the floral pattern on the green bags, like he just scrounged them up from someone else. The command figures were fun, creating all the mismatched plates on the warrior. I decided that the ogre "sorceress" should be "hot" so I painted her up in a tartan mini skirt and semi transparent white shirt, as well as putting her "purse goblin" in pink and giving her a tramp stamp (didn't get a great photo of that, sadly). I really enjoyed painting these guys up. Edit: I swapped out the Ogre Fighter's mace for the hooked blade from the Fire Giant Jailer, because I just liked the hooked weapon more.
  9. 77502: Jungle Titan (Kaiju)

    I got around to painting the Bones 3 Stoneskull expansion "Jungle Titan" a few months back, figured I'd post him up. I wasn't sure on color palette, but then I remembered he was referred to as a "Kaiju" during the KS, and decided to crib the colors from Pacific Rim (or "Awesome Dumb Robot Movie") for the palette, and I think it came out pretty well. His base includes the fallen pillar from Bones 77363 Deva and some clay.
  10. Marthrangul - 77542

    Here is my Marthrangul. She reminded me of a thorny devil lizard so that is the paint scheme I went with. She has accumulated a treasure pile amongst some ruins and made a nest to lay her eggs near her treasure. The treasure is made from glitter, tiny gem colored beads, and bits from the bits box (shield, banner, daggers and swords, etc.) There is a skeleton that has been squashed by some of the falling stones. The eggs are made from greenstuff and display the extent of my sculpting skills. The last photo is pre-nest.
  11. Cobra Bones 3

    Cobra finished, liked the model alotta, so it moved up on the "to-do ladder". It's 90% airbrush, just started using one, so very happy with it. Base is from scibor
  12. The Mercenaries

    Finished these guys on the 22nd, just getting around to posting them on here. From Bones 3: stoneskull expansion. Guessing this set isn't out in their releases of Bones currently. I'm just calling them mercenaries, but very good for bandits or thugs as well.
  13. 77636: Death Shroud

    Decided to do some Christmas red and green on this little scene I created! Practiced some blood and gore, still not thrilled with the blood and gore. Just a rough/quick paintjob. The victim is actually a Bones 1 zombie. I cut the arm off and his waist and then used copper wire to simulate intestines. I then used green stuff to make some gore. and I used the drilled out coils of Bones plastic as well!!!! Hope you like!
  14. I know these are from Bones 3 just not sure what they are called. Anyway it's got perf in it and I know people like seeing him in my pics. Come to think of it he is not a great for scale figure as he is definitely at little bit larger than standard 28mm. Oh well .
  15. The following images depict a miniature of a female sylph or fairy in natura. I am not sure if these would be in conflict with the posting guidelines or not. Better safe than sorry. First picture Second picture Third picture Clear minis are best painted by undercoating with a matte clear varnish and then transparent paints such as inks. This mini has wings in vallejo pale grey wash before citadel carroburg crimson wet blended on drucii violet. Body in thinned old citadel turquoise glaze, hair and panties in army painter green ink. The eyes are the only bits painted with normal opaque paint. As this mini does not seem to be released as of yet, I do not know who sculpted it or what it's code or official name is.
  16. I have finished my graveyard. I added custom elements to the set in order to have a nice diorama and set the scene in autumn. I have also added a Gargoyle but i need a second one for the other pillar.
  17. Mystic circle Bones 3

    Here is my mystic Circle from Bones III :
  18. Manticore bones 3

    Nice Figure. Don't know if I would pickup another though.
  19. Thanks for taking a look! Any advice/comments/criticism is welcome! Hi all, I've recently started painting some of my minis (finally) and also got some friends to help. Below I'll show everything thats been done so far, before likely making a showoff thread for the done done ones (some are aaalmost there, need a few more touches. My Work: (2nd mini ever): 77503 Temple Dragon : - I wanted to do some complimentary color on him but couldn't quite decide where. First thought was underbelly and underside of wings, but glued together the underbelly is incredibly hard to paint. I was also considering the larger left and right spines down the middle and/or maybe just the bones/claws that extend from the wings(bone color?) He seems to photograph better than he looks in standard light, hes a bit dark, so without lighting for taking a picture distinguishing much on him is not all that easy. 77506 Kobolds (6): (3rd mini ever) I am trying to somewhat emulate the Kobolds painted on the Bones 4 page ( https://www.reapermini.com/bones4 ) Just starting on them, got a darker skin tone and tried dry brushing over with a lighter, but its hard to keep it localized on such a tiny mini. Painting these seems like it's going to get more frustrating than it is rewarding.. :/ Trying to do linen white for the cloth with maybe a sepia wash over it, then steel for the armor with a black wash Friend 1's WIPs: (He's painted minis before) 77492 Behir: I think he's planning on touching up the mouth area 77494 Dire Bear: I think he wants to differentiate the fur a little more, it's a bit too uniform 77496 Eilluvasheth, Succubus Queen - Wings look great - I think he's not sure how exactly to translate the color scheme/design to the body Friend 2's (new to painting, first minis): Adventurescapes Barrels and Chest: 77382: Vernone, Ivy Crown Knight (Second Mini) 77498 Werearmadillo (3rd mini) Friend 3: (has painted some in past) 80046: Gray Alien Warriors 77493 Brain In a Jar : Needs to paint the bottom clear plastic piece the same metal as the rest of it Thanks for taking a look! Any advice/comments/criticism is welcome! Ignore these -- Too many attachments, can't seem to figure out which ones to delete
  20. Howdy, For my twenty-sixth day of International Mini Painting Month I present the other Dread Wolf from the Graveyard Expansion... Kev!
  21. Greetings! I thought I'd start a WIP as an ongoing personal incentive to get the larger monsters in my Bones 3 collection painted up & finished - it's mostly all Dragons but I also have some of the other larger monsters that I may throw into the mix here & there. I'm kicking off with Diabolus & Stormwing & I'm using their names as the general inspiration for the colour schemes I'll be using. First off I glued the minis up & filled in any major gaps with green stuff: When dry, I painted the green stuff areas with primer followed by a coat of light grey to try & match the surrounding bonesium colour.
  22. Howdy, For my twenty-third day of International Mini Painting Month I present a Dread Wolf from the Graveyard Expansion... Kev! P.S. Happy Thanksgiving!
  23. The Series continues with the merriest mini of the lot, the Bones 3 Fire Giant Jailor, joining the Joten Horde of Thrym! Now, after sitting on my desk since pulling him from his plastic bag and dry fitting him together, I've been considering what to do with him. The first thing was the weird shaped integral base ... that needed to be fixed. So I dug around for a base to place his base on and settled for one of the large rounds from the same Bones kickstarter. Now, how best to expand upon the stone work of the integral base or was I going to have to dump it altogether and just use the giant. Well, I decided that I liked it a lot but the strange shape was a pain so I cut back the piece to the straight edges along one side. Then using some architectural samples I have a ton of, I proceeded to make new tiles and intentionally break them. They are 1/8" thick (3.2mm) and 2" x 2" in size. After cutting them into squares, breaking them into bits is easy. The rest was just a matter of doing tile work and gluing them in place. I grouted the piece with some Loctite Craft Glue. It's heavy duty and fills in nicely ... see below. After a little sanding to remove the excess glue and roughing the edges, I used a hobby blade and carving tool to clean and define some of the lines in the integral base to better match the new tiles. I also flipped one of the cut away segments from the front for the edge on the left side of the piece (near the top of the pic). Once that was dried and cleaned, I cleaned and glued the giant together and added him to the base. I have to do a little filling of gaps and I did glue the chain down to the tiles so it lays across the ground as if it is landing there. I just have to improve the pin for the dagger on his back belt and settle the keg on the hook off his belt. Then I can coat and prime him and begin his paint job. I'll stick to my Fire Giant Skin Triad ... As used with the Dungeons & Dragons Fire Giant I did last year. Of course, the Jailor of the Fire Giants won't be nearly as pristine as one of their Elite Guards, so you can expect a lot of grunge and prolly some soot. As always, Enjoy and Stay Tuned.
  24. Howdy, For my nineteenth day of International Mini Painting Month I present the Buzzy from the Bones 3 core... Buzzards gotta eat... same as worms, Kev!
  25. Howdy, For my sixteenth day of International Mini Painting Month I present the Wraith Harvester from the Bones 3 core... And a red hot poker, Kev!
