As I said before, I finally have a camera (well, it's actually my wife's new smart phone) that can take reasonable pictures of miniatures. Now I just have to learn how to take good pictures (and learn how to paint ...). Here is the Bones Mummy Captain. As always, I'm aiming for tabletop standard as playing with the miniatures is the first goal. I should probably start doing more/better highlights (any other CC welcome).
Here are a few more Bones models I have painted over the last few weeks. I'm still fairly new to painting bones (2nd and 3rd models I've painted, although have painted a handful from other manufacturers). It's the first time I've used so much white on a mini, I learned that it is a very strong colour and only needs subtle shading to be effective- may have gone overboard on the cloak. Also, washing over white seemed to make it look dirty, which is not what I was going for... Overall I like the colour schemes I went with and am pretty happy with how they turned out.
Thanks for looking!

Extremely pleased with how this little guy turned out, I honestly think he's one of my best paint jobs to date.
As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

So, the other day, I had one of those ideas that spring into my head full formed. I had been discussing a golem made out of books on a Facebook DM page, and saw someone ask for a Book Golem in the KS comment (i think it was David Brawley but I'm not wading through the comments to make sure).
So with this on my mind I suddenly knew what it would look like. And I wanted to have someone summoning one. And who better than our bibliophile Sophie?
The idea is to have her in the foreground perfoming the summoning. Behind her will be a bookcase (or two depending on how I need to valence thing out) with a stream of books flying off the shelves taking shape into the golem. I may add some scrolls and such as well if needed.
I started making the books tonight. I'll be trying out several methods as I will need multiple varieties.
Here are 12 books using wood and card board
And here is our heroine along with a picture of the materials used so far. Craft stick and cardboard from a blister pack. Reduce, reuse recycle!
