Another set complete!  This time it's a group of Eastern Fantasy themed adventurers and encounters.  Almost all the minis are from the third Bones Kickstarter, with the exception of the Tengu/Kenku Monk armed with kamas.  She's from Stonehaven.

The group:




The Oni:








The Kitsune.  The male is one of my favorites...I hadn't even noticed the sake glass in his hand  until I started painting!  That and his swagger make for a very characterful sculpt.






Just some Human Monks:




The Kenku/Tengu:





This is the non-Reaper one, a Monk from Stonehaven Miniatures:

I really want that Oni!!

They should both be hitting retail soon(ish).  It's been a long wait for them both!  I know the male Oni was a ReaperCon resin preview many moons ago, and the concept art of the female Oni has been seen about the forum for years.

Love those oni. The bracelet of eyes is awesome! Stealing it. (The idea, not the actual bracelet. The Oni would likely not appreciate it.)

 And the male fox is great, you did a nice job capturing the character of the sculpt!


Because I wouldn't be me if I passed up a chance for pedantry, the Tengu monk is wielding a non-historical version of the kusarigama. The weapon historically has a kama at one end and a weight at the other, but a lot of recent anime has popularised the look of the double-kama. My personal favorite is the gun-kusarigama used by Emerald Sustrai in RWBY.*



*I am NOT going to discuss whether RWBY is an anime. It has awesome weapon designs, is all I care about right now.

Wow.. What a cool bunch.. Reminds me of my D&D (was called AD&D then lol) 2nd Ed adventures in Kara-Tur - Forgotten Realms (Japanese fantasy setting) days.. 


Would love to grab a hold of them and create an oriental war-band.

      This guy was always intended to be toy box level painted. Basecoat, dry/damp brushing, and a light wash of Army painter mid-tone. But I actually really like the way he turned out.

      I was using this to try a different skin color which I like and I believe I was going to do a bit more detailed TMM but got side tracked. After several months of no work on him, I decided to get him "done" to tabletop level. Here are some shaky iPad photos. C&C welcome.

      This guy was to experiment on achieving realistic light colors on a fairly smooth surface (the apron in this case). After several different tries I was happy with the result...then like normal he sat on the paint desk for months. So I decided to finish him to low tabletop level and wash him in ArmyPainters midtone shade which led to a big tied mark. But he is good enough for my sons toy box. C&C appreciated.

      The third and final mini from the Layer Up! LTPK, Julie Guthrie’s Hajad the Pirate:

      Not gonna try for any better images, because then you would see how badly I messed up the eyes...
      Mostly by the book, but I skipped the lining as my little brush was becoming temperamental. Of the three minis in this kit, this is the one I was most looking forward to, as it has the most exposed skin of the three (one of my problem areas). Think I oversold the abs a bit too much though.
      Based on issues with the previous minis, I elected to basecoat both weapon blades with Ebony Flesh before applying the metallic. The Filigree Silver included in the kit was too watery to play nice with bare Bonesium, and in any case it was difficult for me to see where the paint actually stuck. Plus, it makes lighter metallics pop.
      It was nice to see darker flesh tones included in this kit. The darkest (non-dark elf) skin tone I had available before was Tanned Skin, but my attempts to mix in darker paints always resulted in a weird shade of sadness.
      All in all, this kit was a good learning experience. The instructions were clear and easy to follow, and it was neat seeing the colors build up with each layer. The cartoons were cute too. I just hope that my technique improves moving forward. And that painting eyes gets easier.

      So I have a high level campaign that I want to throw a pit fiend at near the end. I figured let's paint up Agramon! I had to go and challenge myself though. I want the lava of his base to object source light all of him! :D And then there is the fireball in his hand.
      At the moment I am still painting without OSL, he is not ready for that yet. His wings are not attached, nor is his fireball. The rest is attached and locked on the base though. I can still easily reach all of the model, but it will help me determine where OSL is needed.
      So without further ado, here is the current state of Agramon.
      And without his wings.
