OUTSTANDING! The Little Rogues make a WONDERFUL Color Party...BEAUTIFUL color choices & brushwork. The regimental device is UBERCOOLVERY WELL DONE!

The varying skin shades look TERRIFIC. That is an unique take & an imaginative idea that worked SPLENDIDLY.

Great work! I really like the colours and - as you pointed out - the eyes.

 

There is one thing though that looks weird to me: Those orange shoes of the green one somehow don't fit the scenery at all. I mean - you've got all this more or less dark colours, all harmonizing together and then then are bright orange shoes. I don't know. Doesn't fit in my opinion.

Thank you! The darkest goblin really isn't blue. It is my drow skin recipe and it has a dab of P3 Coal Black which is a blue black but not much. There is Nightshade Purple and another purple in there and yet, his photos look blue. Oh well!

Well.....there is a whole lot of brown and bone and beige and tan and I was trying to use other colors since it was looking pretty dull and and kind of blah. I decided to pull the green from the banner down into the loincloth and then using color theory, what goes good with green? Red/Orange. I even threw two washes over them to tone them down. You should have seen them before! I was going to repaint them but my husband said he likes them. I also think they are kind of funny because they are the school colors of my son-in-law's highschool which is in the neighboring small town where I grew up. So yeah, I was just stumped on what color to make them and even thinking about repainting them, not sure what color I would go with. Maybe light blue but not sure how I would like that with the blue loin cloth on the drum goblin and the light blue drummer. Hmmmm.....

It looks awesome. My favorite part is the rusted standard speaks and the longhorn. The gradient on the horns is amazing.

Can't wait to see the group picture, that will dissolve any consurn about the boots color since they will complement the Ogress's clothes.

Thank you! You rock! That is true, once I get the last ogre done and put them all together, there will be more orange!

 

Thanks for noticing the rust! Haha! I was afraid I had gone too dark with the horns but I wanted to differentiate it from the skulls and banner color.

Well, if you thought something out, it's fair enough.

 

I'm just giving away my impression ;-D

Those look amazing!  I love the colour gradations and the details on the banner and the drum especially. All of them look astoundingly beautiful.  

 

As a side note to an earlier comment: I always assume all goblins, orcs and other like creatures have extremely poor fashion sense and thus will literally wear the most hideous colours together. Just my thinking.

      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.

      Hi All!
       
      Here's Kyphrixis from the Bones 3 Kickstarter which I've been working on for the last few weeks.
       
      Thanks for looking!

      First Attempt at NMM.
      Watched some videos on Youtube, but i find it difficult where to put the "reflections" on the gold, aka where and how much, do i put the white.
      plzz advice.
      Colour used
      white
      middlestone, Vallejo air
      Dark earth, vallejo air
      burnt umber, vallejo air
      carroburg crimson, citadel shade
       
      I use vallejo air, because i like the waterys viscosity of the paint. I can wetblend with it on the model.
      Just started with Airbrush, so i try to basecolour as much as posible with airbrush

      It turned out ok......didn't spend allot of time on it.  Think I could do better in the future if I pick another one up.

      It's an alter and a statue?  Don't know the numbers/names but I like how they turned out.  Most of the colors are from using those army paint shades I got in one of their box sets that I haven't done anything with yet.
