These look super!

Those older skellies have so much more character then the newer ones!

 

Great to see them painted and I like the bases.

Looks like a mix - I'm thinking some of those helmets and spears are from newer kits, but I definitely recognize some late 80s early 90s skelly parts from my most favorite kit ever:

"Citadel Skeleton Army" (the big red box with 9 cavalry, a bunch of infantry and 1 chariot). Looks great! 

 

I've been looking for deals like this on ebay for a while. Settled on a $22 for 12 lot. I've got my eye on a larger one, but it contains some junk I don't really want more of (more monopose plastic Skaven), so I'm hesitant to pull the trigger until the price gets lower on it.

      This is Reaper 3789 Fishwife and Crone.  These are the metal versions of the miniatures coming in Bones 4 as part of the Dreadmere set.
      Painted up for tabletop gaming use.  I painted the fish as a delicious deepwater fish from Norway called "Uer".  I have fond memories fishing for these at the shore of the Finnmark fjord, where the drop off was extremely deep.  I was sad to find these fish are now considered endangered.

      These crocodiles have been on my "I want to paint" list for a long time, they finally made it to the front of the line.
       
      First up some Ral Partha Crocodiles from the RIver Denizens set (31-033).   The set also includes a hippo and a submerged hippo, which is somewhere in the lead mountain.  I had picked up an extra crocodile at a convention long ago.
       

       
      I also painted up the Reaper lead Dire Crocodile (65107).  I was happy to see his brother in the Bones 4 Kickstarter, it would be swell if this guy made it into bones as well.  I was about to start the lead version of the brother as well, when my husband piped up and said he wanted to paint it.

      My next two sets of hobgoblins and hobgoblin veterans. I was not as pleased by how well my first set turned out (first set) as I still struggle to paint anything in white very well and felt like there wasn't enough contrast or detail on the armor. So instead this time I tried a sort of a paint, then dark wash, then highlight to get the detail out on their armor. I was hoping the green armor would look more jade (I have those foo dogs to paint up eventually) and it didn't quite turn out like I wanted to, but I am pleased that at least the detail in their armor wasn't as lost this time around. Anyways, thanks for reading!

      Trying to paint up some of my Bones I stuff as well as get more heroes done and intersperse them through my bigger painting projects. I didn't have a lot of halflings painted so decided to paint this little bard fellow. I always try to mimic the official art on at least my first one if they are pathfinder iconics. His coat is burgundy wine/violet red and his hair is the blonde hair triad. I'm mostly happy with the way his pants turned out though someone better could have gotten more detail on the scarf around his waist. He's lazily pinned to a base from Dragon Forge Design. Anyways, thanks for reading!

      Finished off my congress of bugbears (murder of bugbears?). Like the last set, had to cut them out of their broccoli then glue them to these wooden 1" squares I have diagonally so they'd sort of almost fit in 1". Skin/fur is a base of russet brown and highlighted with mixing that with blonde shadow. Hair/fur is russet brown mixed with auburn shadow. Anyways, they were all fun and expressive. Thanks for reading!
