I created a little Graveyard.
The Crypt and the Raven are resin models from Minimonsters, the Skeleton rising from the grave is 02043 from Reaper.
The Tombstones and Fence are from the Reaper Bones III Graveyard Set.
The pathway was made with Milliput and I used the Greenstuffworld Cobblestone Rollerpin on it.

I like Northstar's plastic fantasy figs because they have a Dark Age, Tolkienesque feel. I've decided to paint up my dwarves so that I can more easy justify buying the elves that are coming out soon.
So far I've put three shades of metalic paint all the minis but I'll be painting each unit of 6 or 12 on their own. First up are some speardwarves .
I'm thinking that the beards should lean towards blonde to complement the blue cloth. Maybe some pale yellow spear shafts? Oh, and I also need to order some transfers for their shields.
Eventually the whole army will all get some Polyshades brushed on to pick out the details.

A pair of skeletons from Grenadier packaged in 1992, item #3123: Skeleton Command.
The first mini was my first time trying to use basing materials. The attempt dissuaded further experimentation for now. They weren’t going to be based at first, but the standard bearer turned out to be dangerously top-heavy.
Didn’t have any better ideas, so I went with trying to make them look rusted by following Sirithiliel’s guide:
I hope they turned out okay. Comments and critiques appreciated!
I was miserably ill last month. Gargling razor blades, everything hurt, and I could barely think. So I painted Death. But he's cute death, and I didn't really care if I fudged up a Bones chibi. I kinda hate painting skeletons, but eh, it was a relaxing paint job. Lots of "woulda shoulda coulda" on making the paint blend smoother, go for more contrast... blah blah. I was sick and decided to taunt Death a little by putting in less than 100% effort on him. Not too shabby for a figure that I may end up flinging on the table willy nilly.

Hello again, friends and neighbours!
Several years ago, after the Bones I kickstarter, I made a thread to help people who had just signed up for a ridiculous amount of Bones minis get used to painting and encourage them to just jump right on in! This thread was even more successful than I thought and, much to my astonishment, brings new people to our hobby even today. I thought it was time for a fresh update that might be just as helpful, and maybe give us something to point new people to when they first decide to pick up a brush and become One of Us.
Often when new people come by and have no idea where to start, the first general question is: what are your aims and requirements? This basically breaks down to: do you need pieces done for a game, or do you want to paint just to paint? The idea behind this WIP is to give us something to show people the difference in practice. So with the able assistance of Guindyloo, I will be painting Thanis in my usual fast-but-decent method and she will show us how nice things can be when you spend some time on them.
There are, of course, many ways to paint a mini so this thread is just an example of our present working methods and by no means serve as the only way to do it, or the final word on the matter. Those of you just joining our hobby may have your own ideas about how to do things, and by all means you should use your own best judgment! All we do here is just give you some things to think about.
So on to the mini you came in here to see, and I hope this thread proves useful!
Here's my Thanis, fresh from her blister pack:
