Hello again, friends and neighbours!
Several years ago, after the Bones I kickstarter, I made a thread to help people who had just signed up for a ridiculous amount of Bones minis get used to painting and encourage them to just jump right on in! This thread was even more successful than I thought and, much to my astonishment, brings new people to our hobby even today. I thought it was time for a fresh update that might be just as helpful, and maybe give us something to point new people to when they first decide to pick up a brush and become One of Us.
Often when new people come by and have no idea where to start, the first general question is: what are your aims and requirements? This basically breaks down to: do you need pieces done for a game, or do you want to paint just to paint? The idea behind this WIP is to give us something to show people the difference in practice. So with the able assistance of Guindyloo, I will be painting Thanis in my usual fast-but-decent method and she will show us how nice things can be when you spend some time on them.
There are, of course, many ways to paint a mini so this thread is just an example of our present working methods and by no means serve as the only way to do it, or the final word on the matter. Those of you just joining our hobby may have your own ideas about how to do things, and by all means you should use your own best judgment! All we do here is just give you some things to think about.
So on to the mini you came in here to see, and I hope this thread proves useful!
Here's my Thanis, fresh from her blister pack:
Also from my lunch sessions, these were painted in about 30 minutes all together.
The beetles are heavily drybrushed with silver, with a thin transparent glaze of purple, blue and red across different parts of the carapace. Good enough for government work,as they say.
Another monster for my Lost World Project

This is a 15mm miniature from Demonworld, since it is really huge I use it for my 28mm project.
That is a Microart Studio resin jungle base 3 x 2 inch!
I tried to emulate the metallic sheen that some beetles have on this scorpion.
Using different metallics and then some inks and black glazing.
Likes and comments welcome,if you want to throw rotten tomatoes, report to the scorpion first for a "talk"
