Not stupid, ambitious!  I am trying to paint all of Wrath of Kings and I am just doing one of each in each pose (for example the Skorza Skirmishers is a set of nine figures but only 3 different poses, so I will paint one of each pose).  I thought I had a lot of work to do!  Just don't burn out and stay positive!

I usually just do it on the weekends and I listen to an audio book or watch something on twitch at the same time So I feel like I am getting something done and bing watching some stuff at the same time so it's great! lol.

Also the fit of the pack is so good on the model I didn't bother to glue it on so now I have a camel that I can use as a wild animal and a pack animal.  

 

Sweet!  That was how I intended it to work.  The original green snapped into place when I was done, but one never really knows how things will change during the process of converting a green into a production model.  Different parts can shrink or warp slightly at different rates.  I am very glad these did not.

Cool.  Don't suppose you guys have some donkeys, mules or horses in the works with this same kind of mechanic?  It works really well.  Like I said before I am defiantly picking up another 1 or 2 of these when they become officially available as a stand alone.  I am really loving the Mythos set and even though I didn't get it on the kick starter I managed to snag on of the box sets that has been showing up once in a while on the reaper site.

I don't and I can't speak for Reaper; I'm just a freelance sculptor, so I have no idea as to what they might have in the works with other sculptors.  I would suggest putting it as a request in the Minis We Would Like to See and Bones You'd Like to See threads. Reaper and the sculptors use those for ideas.

Staring at your camel for inspiration. I'm trying to paint some roman camel riders and this camel and not liking how they're turning out.

They have a pack donkey. It's by Guthrie.

Love the camel you painted.  I'm waiting for it's release to grab a few. ^__^

 

--- Edit --- 

I'll double check mine to see if it has the same backpack mechanic.

Oops. It's not detachable.

Still an awesome Mule though! I need to buy more before my Ebay source runs out:)

      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. I use Army Painter Anti Shine Spray for this. (I find all Army Painter sprays (and Vallejo acrylic primers for airbrush) work fine on Bones material, be aware that some brands are to be avoided as they will not cure properly and remain sticky). 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.
