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....

that looks great! 

love the texture, it looks like quality terrain.  Any problems with warped bases or other structure issues?

I love the stones.  You've painted them in a way that makes them both beautiful and mysterious.  I think this will make an excellent terrain piece on your table.  I'm totally going to try and replicate your stonework.   I'm thinking something like that would be awesome for cave terrain tiles or something.

no, nothing really awful....

mold lines that I thought I had gotten...

and a tad bit of putty...

(see Knarthex's law in sig...)

 

Some different tufts and started to add some moss flock....

they will be used in tomorrows Frostgrave game....

and then I will finish with some static grass....

 

thanks for the compliments!

It really isn't that hard to achieve the effects I have gotten, though it does have it's "REALLY UGLY" stages, especially after applying the multi colored inks!

This looked like a clown's conception of "COOL" before the second series of dry brushing....

      So everything is packed for tomorrow...
      and I had nothing better to do....
      So I started a new project for when I get home....
       

      he is 14 parts of bad, and I am cleaning mold lines, and pinning stuff together...
      His torso is resin, everything else is metal...
      (so it aint crap...)
      mold lines are small, but pinning is being interesting.....
      Going to use, I think, a Secret Weapon 'Skull Field' style base....
      He's about 5" tall to the top of his head......
      Maybe semi assembled pics later....

      In the third Bones kickstarter, one of the dragons was made available in clear Bones material, in addition to the normal offwhite the Bones usually come in. Naturally, I opted for the clear one.
      Reiterating how to paint translucent minis:
      Clearly, it is nessecary to use paints that in themselves are translucent, such as inks or quickshades to preserve some of the dragon’s own translucency or it will all be for nought!
      From bitter experience I know that the usual opaque paints will *not* work if you want any sort of translucent effect, even if they are thinned considerably. Many acrylic paints such as I use, (e.g. Citadel, Vallejo, Army Painter, Reaper,  Scale 75 etc) will cover in a certain way which obscures the translucency, also when thinned. Some will leave a “chalky” look. This is mostly apparent in pale and whitish paints.
      So anyway:
       

       
      The key to painting a transparent mini is first to scrub it in warm, soapy water to remove any mold release residue (silicon, talc or whatever. It is greasy and stops the paint from sticking properly to the mini.) The plastic/resin is in itself also somewhat paint repellent on it’s own, so:
      When dry, undercoat it with clear, (preferably matte) varnish. This lets the paint adhere to the mini just like a normal opaque undercoat.
      Then, knock yourself out with inks or quickshades. Experiment with several layers and different colours, even wet blending as you go. Take care to remove any unwanted pools of paint that might gather. I use a clean, damp brush for this.
      Opaque paints should be kept only for extremely light highlighting and any bits that are to be opqaque, such as the base, or for effects such as making eyes pop.
      I used Army Painter Soft Tone quickshade ink (the water based stuff that comes in a dropperbottle, not the horrendous and smelly dip that goes by the same name). In additon I used Army Painter Green quickshade, with claws and eyesockets in Red quickshade. Eyeballs were done in old Citadel Golden Yellow, and the entire body was given an extremely light drybrush with  Reaper Dirty Bone on a broad brush. The teeth were picked out in the same dirty bone.
      The bedrock was glued down to one of my custom oval 3Dprinted bases, and painted in opaques in the same way as I do most rock these days: Dark green/grey over black, heavy drybrush in sandy yellow followed by a lighter drybrush with off white.
      Some tufts, thinned pva glue and my magic flock /scatter mix later, voila.
      I kept the dragon and the base as two seperate parts when painting to avoid slopping the wrong kind of paint where it was not meant to go. I even remembered to paint the plugs on the underside of the feet that were to be in contact with the base to avoid ugly bright patches there.
       





      I opted for a relatively heavy stain.
      To make the colour less colouring. thin the quickshade with preferably acrylic medium, or water. This needs a bit more shepherding and brushwork up until the ink starts to dry enough to stay still, to avoid an uneven result.
