03528: Dust Scorpions

Recommended Posts

Well finally got these little fellows done.

 

They are speed painted (yes I am working on some minis other than speed painting) and I've only taken a photo of one. They are so small though that my available camera can barely take a picture of them!

 

So here is the 1 workable shot I managed and I'll see if I can get a better shot tomorrow night.

      Greetings!
       
      I've been working on this scary Reaper DHL Lich for a week or so. There is a rich blue glowy effect on his eyes but it doesn't seem to have come out that clearly on these pics.
       
      Anyway, thanks for looking!

      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:

      Really liked painting this one, lots of good details. I really wanted to try OSL with his eyes and was considering adding some gore to his claws and teeth but got to this point and decided I really liked how he was looking and didn't want to muck him up with something I haven't tried before. Maybe next time!
       
      Feedback is more than welcome, please!
       
      Also, finally printed out a background for my pics

      Hi friends! We have another project to share with you in our continuing series where Buglips and I paint the same figure using our own very different from each other approaches to miniature painting. If you're not familiar with this series, you can check out our previous topics:
      03100: Thanis the Bonecaller
      01614: Con Crud 2017 Convention Zombie
      02818: Bugbear Warrior
       
      For this project, we decided to paint Scorpius Rex Dracus, which is an older figure in the back catalog of Reaper - just look at the number! 02017! He's one of the OG's of the Reaper catalog! Our usual method for picking a figure is generally that one of us already owns it and suggests it and then the other of us goes and orders it. However, for Scorpius Rex Dracus, we actually both already owned him because he's a really neat figure with a lot of personality.
       
      I know a lot of people are a bit intimidated by the thought of painting dragons, but I promise they're a lot of fun and this guy would actually be a great starter dragon, as he's on the smaller side. I didn't have a Sir Forscale, but here he is next to Queen Illeosa of Korvosa to give you an idea of his size.

      So you can see, he's a far less intimidating size than the dragons you see in Bones. (Spoiler alert, I'm going to assemble him a little later. )
       
      But for now, here he is straight out of the blister:

       
      As we've done with our previous WIP posts, I will be tackling this guy with my method of painting for display and I'll do my best to take y'all through all of the steps that I go through from start to finish and share my thoughts with you as I go along.
       
      As always, please feel free to comment or ask questions - I'm always glad to help out in whatever way I can along the way. I'll try not to take too many blurry pictures....but no promises.

      77337: Giant Scorpion (Bones Version) by Bob Ridolfi


      This poor guy was only half painted when he got used in a D&D Game, without a base.  I'm very ashamed that I did that to him.  But now he has a base and is much happier.  If anyone asks, he is a special genetic mutant scorpion which has different colours on its two halves.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.  I definitely didn't get tired of shading him and dump on my shelf of shame, oh no, never.  40 projects left on my shelf of shame.
