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.

      So while I've been painting some figures, my delightfully talented wife has been indulging her artistic streak.  Basically she saw my feeble attempts, said "hold my tea!" and proceeded to give me a much needed humility lesson : )
      While I've taught her everything I know, I in no way have taught her everything she knows... and it shows a bit, especially with her freehand : )
      77501: Minotaur
      He's big, he's blue, and he's coming to a labyrinth near you!

      77022: Michelle, Female Human Ranger
      I just adore the shading & freehand on her cloak.

      77441: Ostarzha, Elf Cleric
      The freehand on this is very subtle and hard to see, but utterly gorgeous.

      Translucent Green Weapon Sprue
      And while it doesn't really fit here, I can't see myself making a separate topic for it.  Here's one of the green weapon sprue weapons I painted up with Tamiya Clear Green on the blade & pommel.
      Whosoever pulls this sword from this lump of blue "granite" will be the Queen of the Kingdom!

      This weekend I painted up half the bones Familiars 1 set—the wolf, bat, and cat—as part of my plan to make it through some of my backlog. It’s been a really rewarding and fun set to paint, none of the minis take long, and despite the most of the figures being tiny the easy access to reference material made them pretty straight forward.

      Painted Amiri up as a Goliath barbarian.

      Grabbed this mini because I wanted to try out the Golden skin triad. I've also been reading and watching a bunch of painting tutorials and wanted to do a better job than my usual slop and smear. Pretty happy with how she turned out but disappointed somewhat with the metal on the weapons and her hair. Didn't realise you can't see her eyes very good in the photo until now but I even did a decent job on them. Would be happy to get any feedback on how to improve her hair and weapons. Someday I need to get some makeup tips too because whenever I try to do it on my lady's they look like a drunken nightmare.

      I started a second first giant queen recently. I've done a fair amount of work on her so far but still have a long way to go.
