Here is my take on the Graveyard Golem that came with the Crypt expansion in Bones 3.
I tried to give its eyes an eerie glow to show what evil animates it and it also matches the glow in painted on the runes inside the crypt. (http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/77887-crypt-graveyard-expansion/)
After ~6 months of not being able to work on projects, I present my first finished project of 2018- an ancient skeleton horde!
The goals of the project were to:
(1) Start out with a bang in my goal to paint 52 minis this year
(2) Add a good deal more skeletons for horde encounters in an upcoming tabletop RPG I am running
(3) Get more practice with OSL in a setting that allowed me to try multiple techniques on similar models quickly (eyes)
(4) Try my hand at verdigris, again trying multiple techniques to see what I like best
(5) Try out doing weapons/armor chipping and weathering.
Happy to say all 5 goals were met (just took a long time)! This was a tabletop-level project, so while they aren't perfect, they are "good enough".
Please let me know what you think- I relish C&C as it is a critical step in making me a better painter.
I also have a question: I need to seal these guys. I want to use a matte sealer for the skeletons themselves (you can see the gloss from where I used quickshade), but I don't want to dull the metals on the arms and armor. What matte brush on sealers does everyone prefer?
Thanks for looking!
I created a little Graveyard.
The Crypt and the Raven are resin models from Minimonsters, the Skeleton rising from the grave is 02043 from Reaper.
The Tombstones and Fence are from the Reaper Bones III Graveyard Set.
The pathway was made with Milliput and I used the Greenstuffworld Cobblestone Rollerpin on it.

I finished up the Obsidian Crypt from Bones 3's Graveyard expansion. Used a fair amount of spray paint on this one, as I found that it didn't interact as badly with the harder Bonesium than it does with the regular stuff. I also used a bit of blue painter's tape to keep various areas protected, and wound up making use of a marbling spray to get the effect I wanted, and I'm pretty happy with it. It worked best on the floor rather than the walls, but I'm satisfied with it overall. I haven't glued any of the walls together, because it makes it easier to use as terrain or display.
I also mounted some magnets in the floor, and glued some nails into the open areas in the walls so that the whole thing stays together better. It was my first real attempt at using magnets in miniatures, and I'm pretty excited about it.
I've decided to tackle the Graveyard/Mausoleum/Church building, along with the fencing(x2) and various tombstones and other pieces.
I'm a bit confused on what these pieces are. 8 came in the expansion and 4 more in the separate fencing add on in the third kickstarter. What are they and what are they used for?
I also thought I remembered that there were supposed to be skull fence post toppers included but I can't find that anywhere.
