The Big Poobah & his entourage are CHARMING in their own way. He & They are also BEAUTIFULLY painted in a FINE & IMAGINATIVE array of colors. VERY WELL DONE!

While I was checking out your Wee World, I signed up for FaceBook. I'm not sure why I did or how the thing works, but you inspired me...it's all your fault...not really.

Once again quite beautiful work. I don't know what to say else! Clean lines, all elements fitting together, colours matching. I really like it!

Well done! Love the rust effect as well. And who knows: maybe the shield is a favorite so he keeps it untarnished. :D

They look awesome all together. I never realised the Ogre Chieftain shield was a dungeon door until I saw your pictures.

Like you said, there isn't much damage on the door cuz he probably just ripped it off the wall to replace his old damaged shield.

The rusted armor is a great idea. Congrats on completing such a nice bunch.

Thank you! I think they make quite the interesting dysfunctional family! Welcome to the book of many faces! Ha!

I can do that. I think some of his little ogre friends have armor. It is so easy. Today is game day but I'll see if I can whip up something in the next couple days.

 

And Thank you!!!

Haha, yes, the door shield was one of the things that caught my eye and encouraged me to purchase the set during the kickstarter. I was referring to his red and white shield on his back though. I don't imagine anyone wants to get close enough to him to knock on his door! I'm just not sure how he acquired the red and white shield without damaging it. Maybe he charged the knight and the knight dropped it and ran. Not a very brave knight..... ::P: Thank you! I had lots of fun painting these guys!

 

Thanks everyone!

Brilliant work on the armor, the door, everything really.

 

But that bright red ... container hanging from his belt, um, yeah, I won't say why its position and color bothers me because we're a family friendly forum, but ... 

 

O.O

Haha! Well, I thought about painting it blue! There are several different minis that they put a bag or a jug in this position and it just makes me scratch my head. So yeah, since I didn't want to use my knife to slice it off ::o:, I just painted it. I figured he got it from the same guy who had the shield so red it is. It is also a very round container, like a ball. I refer to it as a container in which he carries his ball. ::D:

Reminds me of a ship in Hong Kong harbor, what a eyesore.

Your "rusting Hulk" is much more appealing, and conducive to saying "Oh So Well Done".

Colors and composition are splendid.

Congrats !!

I will try and do this tomorrow (my time). I will send the hubby to get batteries for my camera and dig through my Bones 3 for a suitable armored victim!

      So I was feeling a bit nostalgic, alongside of the affection I already hold for old school miniatures, so I've decided to begin "repainting" some old figures I'd done way back when, I'm going to say in 1983 or before/after. I graduated high school in 1986 and after that totally forgot about miniatures until maybe around 2004.
       
      Anyhow, I've repainted Frito the Thief, a Grenadier model I had when I was young.  With the new version, I did have to resculpt the nose because it was flattened by time.  My other issue was whether I wanted to keep the same color scheme or do something different.  Ultimately I stayed very similiarly with the clothing color scheme, but ended up changing the skin tone and hair color.  I kept an orange turban, but ended up muting the color a tad.  So here's the modern version:
       

       
      and now the original version, painted sometime in the eighties:
       

       
      and then a few side by side comparisons:
       

       
      So what do you think, any progress over the last thirty- odd years? I've got a bunch of these that  I think I'm going to do as time permits.  They really are some very fun miniatures to paint.  The proportions aren't perfect, but they really do have lots of personality!

      As my first finished bust this one was an adventure, some mistakes were made but lots was learned. It was commissioned by a friend as a gift for his fiancee now wife who is also a really good friend. He did not have many requirements, just a similar color scheme to Ben Komets's version. The only variation I wanted to do was the shield design but my friend was ok with changing it. I still almost went with that design but found my way to the one that I ended up using and I am so happy with it.
       
      Any feedback is most welcome!

      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.

      Work has kept me very busy (I'm a first year teacher), so I haven't had much time to paint. I did slap some paint on this guy though.

      Hello everyone,
       
      Over in the Bones 4 Kickstarter enthusiasm thread, there seemed to be quite a few people calling for a list of the new bones figures coming because of the kickstarter. I had a spreadsheet that I'd been using for the previous kickstarters and have tacked a Bones 4 sheet onto it. This is open for editing by anyone to edit and fix things I've missed.
       
      https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dFN0lQL096zQMq8KG5aXcgrA7-VEIEoU6W-ujck7kj4/edit#gid=142862380 (same as linked in my signature).
       
      Entries are group by set (core, expansions, add ons, etc) and sorted by display order on the Kickstarter images.
      Reference numbers are from the Kickstarter images -- for the most part, some are made up to make discussions easier.
      The colors of the "Reference #" and "Group" columns match the colors of the backgrounds of the Kickstarter update images or for late additions, the Pledge Manager.
       
      Specifically for the Bones 4 sheet several of the rows have red background colors. The red background "Name" entries are where I've not been able to determine the correct name from either update images or sneak preview videos. Red background "Existing Part #" entries are where I've not been able to determine if the figure is a new sculpt or what the existing figure's number is.
       
      One thing you'll notice is that there are counts in columns E-F of all sheets, and a date entry field in column G. These counts come from my Bones Kickstarter painted mini tracking spreadsheet. Column E is a full count of the figures you'd receive if you pledged for one of everything in the Kickstarter (except count of bases). Column F is a count of minis that are painted. G2 is a count of unpainted minis and H2 is a percentage of collection that is unpainted.
       
      Hopefully this is helpful to others out there.
