(Update 9/23: Zombies and Swarms, oh my!)

Rather than make this first post a long page of doom, I'll just reply to it with more pictures and link to it here.

9/23 Zombies and Swarms

 

Hey guys! I figured I'd just start my own topic for my painting log as I power through all the bones I got!

I will be updating this as I paint more. :)

77012: Gnoll Warrior

My first Bones Mini! I bought him while waiting for the rest to arrive, to see what this was all about. This is out of the box and painted. Didn't know about washing them first. >.>

77169: Flesh Golem Painted as an Earth Golem, because I didn't get the forces of nature addon.

77171: Stone Golem See above. :P

77090: Mason Thornwarden This was an experiment in speed painting. I think I painted him in about 45min from start to finish. Not bad. He was just a breif encounter/NPC for my game the following night and I wanted some color on him.

A Goat from Crocodile Games...do you know how hard it is to find a goat/ram mini? Guh.

02764: Desmaendus, Gladiator An interesting thing, my D&D world that I've been running for 6 years now features a fantasy version of Egypt and a Grecco-Roman civilisation. To that end, no fair skinned PCs! Been a lot of fun painting all these characters. :)

02738: Helena Female Gladiator I Lurve this Mini. Really, really fun to paint.

89013: Ezren, Iconic Wizard When working on this guy, I tried to stick to a real limited pallet. I like the way it turned out.

77121: Liela, Dark Elf Wizard So far this is the only Bones mini I've toruble with. A lot of the detail on her was...smudged for a lack of a better term. Was a little bit hard to work on, so some of it got fudged.

14230: Sir Daman,Crusaders Hero I hate to say this, but Reaper desperatly needs some new armored female mounted characters. The Garrity ones that are out there are really, really dated, and the rest either don't have armor, or their horse is standing still. Hopefully we'll see some new ones with KS2!! That being said, I LOVED painting this mini.

77063: Duke Gerard When I knew I was making a mounted character for D&D, I knew I was gonna need a on-foot version. I opened my case of bones, and this guy was the first one I pulled out. I was THRILLED. Close enough. :)

 

post-12464-0-33350100-1378879481_thumb.jpg

77047: Goldar, Male Barbarian with Heaswap Another fun mini made even more fun with a little head swap. I admit, I did feel a little bad taking the nippers to him, but only for a moment. :)

 

Well, that's all I've got done for now.

 

Cheers!

Its funny, out of all of them I was like, WHAT a GOAT?!!! COOL!

 

I just got some pigs and chickens, jeesh theyre expensive. I really want a good polar bear and forgot where I saw one but it was like $12 and I was like ug, thats too much to spend on a polar bear at the moment.

 

I like that you did your gnoll as an albino. I find that horses are such a pain I put them off to later, due to make crazy barding designs and heraldry.

Thank you for the complements!

Yeah, trying to find animal companions that aren't just wolves and big cats are hard.

 

spencerjohn : If you remember where you found a polar bear let me know, I'm trying to get my hands on one.

9/23 Zombies and Swarms

 

I decided to try something a little new this time, and went with some of the swarms, specifically zombies and vermin.

 

post-12464-0-82868500-1379977750_thumb.jpg

77128: Vermin: Spider Swarm: I was gonna put little hour glasses on their butts, but got lazy, and went with black and green dots to tell the two groups apart. I don't know why, but red spiders just works.

 

post-12464-0-75026200-1379977752_thumb.jpg

77129: Vermin: Rat Swarm: I only now noticed that I didn't delineate these two from eachother...oops. >.<

 

 

post-12464-0-67254300-1379977754_thumb.jpg

77127 Vermin: Beetle Swarm: I don't know if you can see, but these actually have a coat of color shifting gloss on them. Just turns sparkly teal in the right light.

77053: Zombies: These guys will mostly be used as minions, but I painted their loincloths different, just in case I needed to tell them apart.

 

post-12464-0-61638900-1379977758_thumb.jpg

77014: Zombies: I admit, I struggled some times trying to figure out what was cloth on these guys, but I made it work in the end.

 

 

That's all for now! Thanks for looking!

      I have finally started working on my many Bones minis. This first one is 773000 Antipaladin by Bobby Jackson. It is mostly an experimental/ practice piece. I am not completely happy with my mold line removal, but in this case I am not going to worry about it too much. Mostly it is to get me acquainted with working with Bones minis and to experiment with my new Scale 75 metallic paints. I am not happy with all of the photos, my old photo setup got broken and I haven't gotten it replaced yet and just as I was taking these pictures one of my light bulbs went out and I don't have a replacement. Should be able to get better pics once I get a new bulb.
       
      First off I base coated the cape with Nightmare Black. This was a new paint purchase and I wanted to play with it. Really like this color.
      Next I used Faded black to Undercoat the skulls on the armor. I'm planning to do these in a metallic steel. Used Tanned skin as a base coat on his head.
      Next came Ultramarine Shadow for the armor undercoat. I really like this color for this as I am going to do the majority of the armor in a dark blue steel tone. The only down side is that the blue colors are fairly transparent and so take several coats to get good coverage.
       
      Looks like I am having some chipping issues, but I think I have that issue solved. Hope to get some more work done on him soon if life doesn't make me do other things first

      I love this figure.
      Not so much the bendy weapons, but I straightened them out.
      They have bent back a little (Sword).

      I did a WIP on him.  Thanks for the encouragement along the way.
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/80720-kord-the-destroyer-bones/
       
      He is another for our Reign of Winter Adventure Path.  My DM said "Vikings."  Kord has that vibe for sure.
       

       
      I tried to paint the base like grass.
      The hardest part was the nmm on the axe, and trying to get the runes to show up on the sword.  It's a very irregular axe shape, so it was tough to figure out how to do it.
      My green stuff patch job on the wolf pelt was not the greatest, but it is decent enough camouflage.
      The second-hardest part of the figure to me was figuring out what parts of the pelt were what.  What is tail? What are legs?  I did my best.
      Overall, I'm pleased with him.  He seems like such a bad-a$$.
      As for the pics, iPhone seems to be good for far away, but really "blobby" for up close.  Maybe it is suffering from zoom.
      C&C Welcome.

      First up is Terezinya, Bonepander Wizard (Reaper 77173).  She had been sitting on my paint desk partially painted for so long that her base got dusty, oops.  She always gave me a pirate wibe, hence the plank base.




      Nienna, Female Elf Ranger (Reaper 77091) is another one that sat partially painted for a really long time.  All that green, how do I paint all her knickknacks in an interesting way without making her stand out in forest?  Finally just brute forced it to get her done.


       
      Trista, the White Wolf (Reaper 77094), she didn't languish as long as the other two, but like normal I got stuck on deciding on colors for all the details.  But with 3 off the desk of shame I can start on something new!

      In response to a local club challenge, I painted this dwarf in 3 colors chosen by a computer program.
      written by @SirLarpsAlot
       
      Golden Yelllow, Winter Blue and Leather Brown + B&W 
       
       
      edit, I do need to fix that eye...

      Can’t remember the mold, sorry...added some GW heads I had laying around. Needed an executioner for a game...seemed fitting
