I thought I'd try to keep a work in progress of the process I'm making in Bones 3.  I got distracted/bored during the Death Guard painting, and went back to some of the bones.

"Heeey you guuuys!"

The Fomorian just called to me.  He felt left out when I painted the other Giants, I guess.

A few more in the group process:

The wee folk.  Who would've thought one of my favorite pieces from Bones 3 would be a simple Thug?  I had to give him the classic heart tattoo.

Some more work on Mr. Fomorian:

The second of my projects from Bones 3 is complete:
 


Now, it's onto the next project!

The Savage Avatars.  I was really excited about this when they added them.  I've been reading "Elephantmen", in which three of the main characters are animal/human hybrids of...a Rhino, Elephant, and Hippopotamus.  Good inspiration!

I tried to give them distinct skin tones...Hippo skin is more involved than I thought!


The Kobolds.  I'm not very impressed with these guys, they're really tiny with shallow detail.  Not the winners of the Kickstarter...I liked the originals more.  But variety is good.

Last, the Undying Lords.  Great set, I love all the details!  I keep finding more exposed bones through armor and stuff, I feel I'll be touching these guys up over and over.

And the new few colors are added.

Merrow join the fray.  I had two due to the first having a miscast face, so he was converted with a weapon swap, arm repose, and his face carved out to be scarred instead.

As far as I know, the Bones Merrow are the first time they ever got a miniature!  Funny enough, the next D&D set has two, in their new evil Mermen look from 5E...very much like the Warcraft Naga.

I found the same thing when I painted the Hippo King.  there is a lot going on in the grey/purple/pink tones in different areas on a hippo. 

It looks we ended up in similar places.   I didn't like the rhino as much as the others, but elephant guy is high on my list to tackle soon.

Time for sealer.

The Kobolds were...not fun.

I
can't decide if I want to keep all the feathers red, or mix them up a bit.

Thought I had posted this one already, but started a batch of Bones III monsters during the last hours of Bones IV.  I figured it would build up some karma.

 

The Orcs and Hobgoblins were added when I accidentally poured too much green paint.

      The scenery from The Bones 3: Mythos Expansion
       
         
       
      77525 Great Obelisk.
      I have tried to vary the tones on the greys used here, on the obelisk itself and not just the cephalopod on top. It really does not show up too well in the pictures.
       
          
       
      77523 Cthulhu Shrine
      A statue that causes sanity loss. As above, I trued to vary the tones,mostly with different coloured glazes. And they do not really show up in the pictures here either.
       
       
       

      This does not seem to have a code nor a name (yet). It is also from the Bones 3 Mythos Expansion.
      I will call it the Cultists Altar.

      Painted this guy last weekend.  Highlighting is still a problem for me, but I still like the way he turned out.  I plan on touching up a lot of the paint next weekend, and eventually going over the parchment again to update the writing, but for now it will do.  Any tips on doing small runes or letters would be appreciated.  Thanks as always!

      Hajad is another sacrife to the toy box level painting (ie. ignore moldlines and any advanced techniques) in my quest to find the "right" zombie skin tone. This time based with 50/50 MSP Vampiric skin and VMC Basic Skin Tone. Covered with a wash of Army Painters blacker colored Dark Tone Ink. This is getting closer to what I want and might be right on with a wash using a brown ink like Strong Tone. I am going to find another sacrificial mini to try a 50/50 mix of the vampiric skin with VMV Dark Fleshwith a brown wash. I think that will give me the grey undead color I want ith enough caucasian skin to look like a fresher conversion to the zombie lifestyle. 
       

       
      I like this model, so will need to look at getting him in metal at some time. For now this one will be used as a ghost pirate in a Hero Kids adventure with my four year old.
       
      Thoughts and comments greatly appreciated.

      Orctober got an early start this year, mostly due to me pouring too much green paint when I was doing the base tones on my Bones III Monsters:

      First, the actual Orcs!


       

       

       

       

       
      I liked the thematic continuation of the Orcs from Bones 1. 


      Painted with them, and only cousins to the theme of Orctober, come the Hobgoblins!
       

       

       

       

       


      There were a few frustrating details on these sculpts, and some odd undercuts, but their paint scheme stayed relatively simple.  I don't use Hobgoblins often; I think the only time they've shown up in anything I've run has been premade adventures where they show up as random henchmen.
