So I got my cut of Bones 3 from the person I went in with, and decided that the first thing to get done would be Bonehenge....
Started by airbrushing with Grey Liner cut 50%, Then Stynylrex Black, then Stynylrez Grey, cut 50% as a Zenithal....
I then remembered how mad I got at myself for not scraping the mold lines on my DDS 2 terrain, and got busy....
Was pleasantly surprised that only the 2 upright pieces with lintle stones had anything at all noticeable....
Then the Black (Cut 50% this time!) and Grey were redone on those 2 pieces....
Pretty much plan to follow the same paint scheme that I did for my DDS 2....
As I pondered my choice of wizard for my new monstrous Frostgrave warband, I slowly realized there was only one choice really. I put his witch, cat, and cauldron into he shopping cart around Halloween time. I knew I needed one for any legitimate Halloween display of miniatures. But it had sat unpainted in the blister for a few months while other things took priority.
Back to the frostgrave war band. So I chose witch as my wizard's school and proceeded to fill the ranks of soldiers with monstrous members like the horned hunter and a medusa archer, couple of tieflings, and even giant rats as warhounds. I think I am meant to paint up this witch as the wizard. She comes with a cat that I'm putting on the base with her and a cauldron that I am not. The cauldron will make a great prop when playing pathfinder and I already have a place for it in the birthday party adventure I have planned for next week. However the cauldron needs to sit on a fire or bed of coals or something. I realized I do not even have a campfire token so that became part of this project.
okay, so first I grabbed two 20 mm bases and glued some small pebbles and gravel to them like so:
Next I had to put the witch and cat on a base. I cut up an old bones base to fill out the bare base with flagstone shapes and glued down more gravel to fill in some of the gaps. Finally everything got some black primer.
Witch and cat:
The black Cauldron:
All of this happened over the last couple of days. Have not had much chance to paint since Friday night since we currently have house guests, but still managed to just start to lay down base coats while everyone else was entertained by part of a movie. Out pale saffron on the Inside of the cauldron and emanations, the cats eyes, the center coals in the fire pit, and the bat in the witches hand. No, I am not making the bat yellow. Honestly did not realize it was a bat until I got the yellow on it. Now I know.
also mixed wreath green with dusky skin to start on the witch's skin. Oh and also some vampiric skin for the witches hair and for a quick dry brush on the rocks in the fire pit.
Here is where things stand right now.
I would love some ideas for colors on that witch besides black and green. I can't seem to picture anything else.
I'm putting together a monstrous warband for frostgrave and I did a quick paint of these three bones today.
77148: Damien the hell born wizard as my apprentice
77036: medusa as an archer
77198: barrow rat as a war hound. This last was a super quick paint as I finished the other two.
Dressed the gorgon/medusa with knife and paint, so she's Sfw. Still, I'll spoilerize the pics:
i want to include the horned hunter I did as well in this warband. Still not decided what to use as my wizard and other band mates. I want to try to keep an even gender ratio, but there are very few monstrous women and the few that are out there have a hard time keeping their clothes on.
So I finally got tired of this guy, and basically finished him up, put him on the base and called him done....
Tried a few new things with him, such as adding an off white to the base color of his skin for high lighting, as well as the work on his "Skirt"
Overall, I am certainly happy with him as a piece to be used eventually in a Frostgrave campaign...
Thanks for looking!
