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:
So it's been forever and a day since I've painted a Reaper figure, and I've never painted a Chibiesque mini before. On Facebook though, my wife saw a painted version of this delightful little big headed mummy and told me how much she liked the figure so that got me to hunt it down and paint it for her. It was nice because being a face and rags, it really didn't take too long to do, I think from beginning of painting to end, not including the base was probably five hours. I went more green on his face than the greys I've seen in most of his renditions just for something a little bit different and I didn't want to make his bandages too, too dirty, so tried to still leave them with a linen or cream color. Anyhoos, here he is, enjoy!

Ok, just came across this bizarre trailer on Youtube of Russian Fantasy Movie produced by Disney. I think it's a real thing, at least according to this Hollywood reporter article: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/disney-russia-local-language-movies-885954
Anyway if you want to see Baba Yaga in her flying mortar, plus a great shot of her hut running, check it out...
