  1. I bought the Steampunk Wizard of Oz set for my daughter out of the Bones 3 KS. Naturally, I am doing it last minute for her birthday Tuesday, the 18th. So, here's the plan: A. Assemble them all on unfinished but sealed silver maple wood cuts using usual building materials. B. Basecoat them with simple but muted colors. C. Apply Sepia Wash and paint as needed to simulate a "colorized movie" look. Here's what we got so far: Dorothy and Toto on a Compass Rose beginning their adventure. The witch commanding her monkey. Dorothy glued in and brick road applied. Lion and brick road applied. Enjoy and stay tuned. More to come.
  2. This was another entry in my year-end Conga Line of minis to finish. My husband gave me this whiskey (barrel) golem because it was made of wood and useful for a steampunk game he's running. This is Malifaux' WYR20603. (Apparently there is a slightly fancier version called the "Nightmare Whiskey Golem" which also has little goblin figures squirming all over it and drinking its leakage in disturbing fashions. I am just fine with this version, thanks.) This is the first polystyrene plastic figure I've ever put together. It was interesting, if fiddly. Here he is next to Reaper's 50016: Rosie, Chronotechnician for scale. Original WIP (from a while ago) here.
  3. Ever since I started working on my Frostgrave waterfront last year, I have thought that the Reaper "Dark Maiden" figure would make a cool addition to my Frostgrave figure collection; taking the roll of either a dockside Construct, or even a Wraith or Demon. I was lucky enough to pick one up in a Box of Goodwill a while back, and it's been lingering on my painting table until I built up the courage to tackle it. I finally decided with the River scenario from the Frostgrave Thaw of the Lich Lord supplement on our schedule for next month, that it was time to build up my courage and tackle this beautiful figure. In mulling over paint schemes, I decided that I wanted to do something like the grayish-brown of the masthead shown on the shipwreck of the Charlotte during the opening scenes of the movie "National Treasure." This seemed simple enough, just some brown and grey drybrushing over a dark base. The hard part was going to be that I wanted to make it look possessed, with glowing eyes and glowing swords; and Object Source Lighting (OSL) still is not a strong technique for me. In the end I'm really happy with how it turned out. While I wish it had turned out a little more aged grey, and less brown; I still think it looks properly demonic. :)
  4. This is the only mini I finished in December of 2016, but at least it was a larger figure.... Otherworld Miniatures Iron Golem (SKU DM32d) on a 2 inch diameter Reaper base. He is painted using mostly metallic paints.
  5. Gauntfield, Necropolis Hero "Harrow, Reidlar of Terror" I bought Gauntfield to specifically use him as my terrifying Reidlar (embodiment of emotions/thoughts), Harrow, for my custom campaign, Markshire. The miniature was perfect for the character ... a detailed scarecrow with a scythe and a bag of bones and other tidbits who pulls unwary adventurers and children into his "Courtyard" to terrorize them with his smaller scarecrows stuffed with raven feathers and twisted ash sticks. This great miniature by Bob Ridolfi was based on a metal slug and I slowly created an eerie, dead tree from skewers, rocks, green stuff, and finally green putty. Then after it was assembled and painted, I decided he needed a pile of leaves around his legs. Ones drawn together by his magic so you'll see traceries of fell yellow magic outlining the leaves. You can see all of the steps leading to this finished piece on the WIP. I present, Harrow. Enjoy. Check him out in the Inspiration Gallery.

  6. Gauntfield, Necropolis Hero Yup, another WIP. Gauntfield has been in my kit for years. He has received most of the excess green stuff from everything I've ever built. I wanted the scarecrow to be standing behind a tree trunk, gnarled and dead for many years. So I started out by applying him to a base that filled the space up to his feet on the slot bottom he had and built the basis for his tree. As you can see, I used two skewer pieces as the center posts and set the "fork" of the tree I was looking for. Then I placed terrarium rocks around it to fill out the bottom of the trunk. Then over the years I scraped on any excess green stuff I had from projects. Tonight's effort was the eye of my Undead Dwarf. A very tiny amount of green stuff. Which is a little hard to mix and create at that size. It was smaller than a pin head. So the remainder went around one of the upright trunks from the tree of Gauntfield. Then after some thought on my efforts to create a bark exterior I decided the whole tree needed a skin and fill of some of the unnatural sections of green stuff. So I got out my green putty and went to town on the surface of the tree. I had primed the scarecrow and tree earlier so I just went right over that. You'll notice that the "skin" added is a bit rough. I'll go over it in a bit and clean it up once it's set a bit more. If I like the appearance of it, I will prime that and move on. If not, I will go over that a more until I am happy. Green putty is also a great product to smooth over a surface. So I made some of the sand around Gauntfield smooth with the putty while I was working the tree. Green putty dries really quick so within a few minutes I can sand the surface of it with my thumb or stiff brush. I have an old toothbrush for this. So, here's a second skim of "bark" with the Green Putty. I cut off the excess bamboo skewers and created a branch collar on each end where the trunks would get overgrown with the bark. Just below the saddle of the two trunks, I added a third trunk that has broken off and left a branch collar using the Green Putty. You can see that I "sanded" some of the skin and added more. Stay tuned.
  7. It has been ages since I last posted anything I painted, and I realised that I had not posted this miniature to the forums! It's a fairly simple take on the battleguard golem from Reaper, and I tried to do it entirely in NMM. Well, here's the pictures, C&C's always appreciated!
  8. Continuing the effort to increase my options when rolling on the Frostgrave encounter charts, here is a Large Construct: Old Rusty the Iron Golem with his enchanted sword, Anvilbiter. 77168 Battleguard Golem Reaper Bones KS1 Bonesium PVC 40mm base
  9. Quick Stone golem, this one was done as a body guard to a very vain and particular sorceress, hence the clothes and whatnot and not just solid stone look.
  10. Hi all, first Show-Off post here! Been painting since the first Bones Kickstarter but wasn't satisfied with the results enough for sharing until recently but now I'm diving in. I had a lot of fun painting all the Bones golems together/in succession. It really gave me a chance to differentiate the appearances I wanted as they developed. I gave myself the liberty to experiment a bit and created more than one version of some. For the ice golem I wanted to preserve as much of the translucency as possible as he's already a nice glacial blue, so I kinda went to town on the basing instead. I like the stone golem but it always reminds me of Frankenstein's monster. The clay golem, aka, "Do you even uplift, bro?" - I know, geology jokes . . . I needed the second one to serve as a blood golem. I really like the flesh golem because he can also double as a larger zombie at the gaming table. Finally, the battleguard golem. Makes a great warforged character or iron golem. I wanted a tarnished look on this one because let's face it - iron makes for a really poor choice for golem materials in any fantasy setting with ice sorceress's (ice sorcerese?), weather altering druids, dank caverns, etc. Feel free to provide feedback too! In addition to learning the painting itself, I'm still understanding the nuances of photographing these little monsters I built a DIY light box and have a decent non-phone digital camera but it's still finicky. For example the flesh golem appears noticeably less vibrant red in person, while the brown clay golem is actually a bit more red-brown than this image. Despite having the same backdrop, as I know that subtly changes things. Anyway, enjoy!
  11. Tabletop paintjob of the cool Iron Cobra sculpted by Andrew Pieper. Sadly there was a nasty mold line across the scales that I was unable to remove.
  12. This was by far my favorite of all the bones minis to paint thus far, and my first time experimenting with making my own washes. I used GM Mechrite Red thinned down to get the sort of crusty, infected skin effect over top of all the stitches, and I think it turned out ooookay!
  13. One of a dozen bones I'm working on at the moment. For this stone golem I decided to try a semi precious stone look, rose quartz. The helmet, bracers, and skirt I tried for a dark granite/slate color. All of the bones I paint right now I just go for table top quality and try to hit the right look from a few feet away rather then a few inches. Edited: Cropped to get the pics rotated right.
  14. Two conversions, one as bought. The left one is for a friend's character. He carries a shield, so I cut the arm, changed the angle, attached a shield to the arm, and filled the gaps with green stuff. The right arm was lost to infestation of necrotic undead worms, and was replaced in Sharn. I filed off some of the angles to make look like a different style. I then painted the arm to look new, and the body to look old and corroded. Alas, the character was lost to a huge undead dragon. The one on the right is intended to be a brawler style fighter (D&D 4E). I cut the sword off and pinned an axe in its place. I pinned horns on the head from a reaper part set as an integrated helmet of charging. On the the right arm I cut the end off a tail, and filed off one side and attached it to make it an integrated spiked gauntlet.
