So, this may seem to be an odd question, and it probably is. In terms of standard fantasy RPGs like D&D, AD&D, Pathfinder, and OSR what really differentiates a zombie from a skeleton in terms of undeath? Is it just that it has skin where a skeleton does not. So if a zombie loses all of its skin does it then become a skeleton? A variant zombie?
Hope it's okay to post this just for appreciation's sake. I do have some actual Reaper minis and Bones I want to post, but this is what I photographed first. This old Ral Partha figure from the 80's was one of my test characters when I started using the MSP's I got earlier this year. This is all new to me except I painted horribly with (gasp) Testors on this guy and all my old figures during the 90s. Hey, we was poor. You can see how I wanted to immediately strip the paint off this guy and go at it with your paints. I learned a lot reading the boards. I had some Bob Ross painting under my belt along with the figures from my old D&D days. I painted the entire line from the Talisman board game first, so I got better with shadowing and whatnot as I went along. I did nothing like this back in the 90's when I painted my original characters though. These paints are awesome! Thank you for making an old hobby even better. My son and I will enjoy painting these together for quite awhile. You might find it funny that I made my base out of a piece of clear plastic cut from a package that may have had mini hooks or hangers, then attached what was really a small base for the figure with hot glue. No, it gets better. Those rocks? Big globs o' glue! lol You could probably make quite a lot from it, like whips and things you might want flexible. This base is all hardened though. I used some kitchen items for basing as some suggested here and gave him a highlander touch. This was always one of my favorites with the dragonscale and sword, so it just begged for some MSP love. I'll post the more relevent figures here soon.
youwashock posted a topic in Show OffHello. I paint a lot of different things so I guess I will try to keep one thread running rather than make a thread for each thing or genre. Lately I have been working on Heroclix mods/repaints and Sedition Wars. Also the Bones-wolf in the other thread. Anything could show up, though, as I have been collecting minis for...a long time. Sedition Wars Like these minis. They have had mixed reviews since they started being received, but I think McVey did a good job with these models. Have been slowly picking away at the box. Went with yellow for the Samaritans and your standard zombie palette for the Strain. Akosha was the character I was most excited to paint from the core game. I wanted to paint her up in light colors since I have yet to see her that way, and as a contrast to her nature as a wetwork killer assassin type. Here she is with her active camo version as well. And a close up of the glowing eyes on the camo'd one. Since she's a cyborg, and all. Heroclix I have recently been bitten by the mod bug for Heroclix. It isn't a game that one would normally consider for rewarding painting, but there are some really talented modders doing inspiring work out there and some really horrid models that need replacing with something more aesthetically acceptable. Hulk. A Heroscape figure repainted and mounted on the base of a little-tiny-not-at-all-imposing sculpt from the Incredible Hulk set. Superman repainted Kingdom Come style and put on a sculpted explosion to replace the hideous TabApp sculpt. For those unfamiliar with Heroclix, the TabApp sculpts are an abomination whose only value is that they have inspired many to try modding their figures. Captain America. Another TabApp repaint/swap with some new wings sculpted on the temples. Wolverine TabApp. Repaint and some sculpting for the hair. A classic look from right after Fall of the Mutants. Thanos. I love Thanos. A Heroscape repaint and sculpted gems for the Infinity Gauntlet on the original dial from the first set. Sorry for the pic dump. Further updates will be smaller. This is just the more interesting stuff I've done recently. I have just finished up some more Strain, the Bones Minotaur, and a Zoat. Will put up pics when they are taken. In the pipe: more Sedition Wars, Alkemy kitties, more Heroclix, maybe some GW. Thanks for looking.
For my last few projects, I haven't stepped back and taken the time to snap a few pics while I'm working, and frankly, it's leading to sloppier results. While this definitely isn't the case for everyone, I'm finding that a combination of taking those breaks to really study your work, and documenting what you've done for your own future reference are both rather helpful tools as I learn about this hobby. Thus, it seems appropriate to start an ongoing project log.
