I've been steadily plunking away at a series of "other" projects but now have some extra time to start "playing" with Bones. As a newbie, I wanted to start with some nice, cheap models that would allow me to experiment some with the feel of Bones and how paints interact with them since the material is completely different from the primarily metal/resin/plastic that I've been using. As an additional bonus, this will also give me a chance to play with some of my new paints that I haven't really used yet. All of this is in build up to some bigger Bones projects that are taunting me on the horizon. (I see you Kally and Nethyrmaul, don't think your schemes are going unnoticed!) As an aside, this is one of the great things about the Bones line. They offer lots of pretty detailed models for cheap, which makes them great practice. So anyway, the first test subjects: As you can see we have: Reaper 77008 Garrick the Bold (a.k.a Sir Forscale) Reaper 77240 Skeleton Guardian Sword (3 in package) Reaper 77065 Norgol, Irongrave Knight Reaper 77171 Stone Golem These all look like fairly straight forward minis (which means I'll still do a terrible job :P but will at least feel semi competent in doing so!). Seriously though, they should be good for providing a backdrop for some test schemes for future use and to see how some of the triads work together, etc. Naturally, it just wouldn't be right if we didn't start with Sir Forscale so of course, we have to Brown Liner all the things! Hmmm, missed a couple of spots but hopefully that won't be too big of a deal. I did forget that I probably do not need to thin the Brown liner much, if at all, when working with Bones so it did get a little bit thinned. Hopefully he'll hold it together though. As always, feel free to offer any advice, critiques, or suggestions as this progresses. I'm still really new and will definitely appreciate any tips, with no offense being taken as I know have the skills of a new painter, but would like to get better!
Hello all, As Reaper doesn't include any descriptions (that I could find) on the properties of their Liners, Clears, Inks & Pastels, does anyone have a good knowledge of their characteristics? Like what are they primarily used for, are they more fluid, more dense, brighter, translucent? I think they are used for more vibrant and flowy washing effects? I'm thinking of buying $35 worth of Reapers' Ink & liner triads and maybe a clear and a pastel and some other different/special paints in order to get a free gift Sophie. Recommendations on these and other of Reapers' special paint products or neat colors would be appreciated. I can't decide whether to get Buron Street Sophie or Cowgirl Sophie.... *mind blows up* I'm primarily painting Bones minis with a modest selection of MSP core colors (2-3 of each of the 12ish main colors) help
