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....

      This is an old Mage Knight figure that I slightly converted and repainted. He was holding a comically undersized flail in his left hand, so I cut it off and replaced it with a halberd from an old GW Chaos Warrior I had in my bits box. After that, it was just a matter of repainting him for use on the tabletop. He'll make an interesting BBEG in some game I haven't created yet.
       

       

       

       
      Thanks for looking.

      These are 3 little imps/demons that I pulled off the melt table at Reapercon last year. I'm not sure of manufacturer, so if you recognize them, please let me know. I think they may be from a 15mm figure range.
       
      I bashed these guys out over he course of a couple evenings about a week ago. Thanks for looking.

      Mainly because a user asked me who made a particular miniature and I can't reload the message to answer it. These are the winter or frost versions of the adventurers in the latest Hasslefree Pin Up kickstarter. The bard (blond, cloak, staff) is called "winter erryn" by Hasslefree. 
       
      I have asked on the "bones you would like to see" thread for wintery/frostgrave style Bones figures.

      “Off to off the wizard”
      The figures are from Reaper Bones KS3, “Chronoscope Wild West Oz”.  Since they all were armed, I see this as a sort of hit squad, hence the title.
      I based them on 30mm round display bases from Reaper, and I 3d Printed a 20mm round in a similar style for Toto.
      Since not only the Tin Man, but also the flying monkey are obvious metal robots, I think “Weird West Oz” or even “Steampunk Oz” would be a more fitting moniker.
       
      The miniatures are made in the slightly harder Bonesium, henceforth to be known as Better Bones™. Since the third Bones kickstarter, all Chronoscope Bones are coloured grey,
      The Flying Monkey, Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow are sculpted by Bob Ridolfi, with Dorothy and Toto by Julie Guthrie. Only the Scarecrow seems to be released in Bones as of yet.

      This set was delivered as part of the third Bones kickstarter campaign, but is not sold by Reaper. There seems to be no mention of it here on the Reapermini-site at all, which I find a bit strange. It does not appear in any search I have tried. However, it is to be found on the Victoria Miniatures site, so I assume it was only made by Reaper for Victoria Miniatures and not as a joint product even though it was in the Bones KS.
       
      That aside,
       
      IT'S SLEDGEHAMMER TIME!
       

       
      I have not actually painted any large vehicles or similar kits like this in a very long time, and have never really tried my hand at weathering or any of that lark. So the results are not all that either. In hindsight, I think I should have done the piece in a different color more consistent with the uniforms I ended up doing, maybe added some camo netting or something. Also I probably should have looked into how to do weathering properly -I don’t even have a sponge. And maybe I should get my airbrush up and running again. Oh well.  It is perfectly servicable for the tabletop.
       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      the backside pictures all turned out too blurry to be usable.
       
      The gun and carriage are in hard polystyrene HIPS plastic, and quite straight forward to build. Parts fit together fine with little or no flash to speak of.
      The crew are in bones material, and the rubbery type at that. Only the wrench and the rangefinger piece needed the hot water treatment to straighten anything out. All (apart from the range finder part) are one piece, with tabs beneath their feet to fit seperate slotted 25mm round bases in a similar style to 40k. There is also a large oval base for the piece, but I did not use that here.
      The tabs needed slight trimming to fit the slots in the bases. Apart from this the minis only had very slight mould lines, which can be ignored unless they, like for me, trigger your OCD and need to go. I carve them off with a sharp scalpel.
       
      The range finder-piece was completely wonky even after boiling, and I ended up having to drill through it and insert a pin to get it to be something approaching straight, The crew are slightly smaller than similar models from the Imperial Guard, sorry, Astra Militarum from Warhammer 40k which this model clearly is meant for.
