The painting theme of the month has been chosen! The Undead of October will emerge from their (freshly painted) graves The miniatures have been selected… Here’s what's on the painting table:
9 Bones Skeletons (from Bones 2)
6 Undying (Death, minotaur, lizardman, elf, halfling, & dwarf skeletons from Bones 3)
Bone Fiend (Bones 2)
4 mummies (Bones 2)
Hecklemeyer & Styx (25th Anniversary mini)
Dust King & Tomb (Bones 3)
Demi-Lich (Bones 2)
3 Nefsokar mummies (Bones 1)
26 (or 28 if you count the broken tomb and the tiny puppet) minis, in 31 days? Less if you count the vacation in the middle of the month… Plus one day since I started on the last day of September. Granted, the skeletons should all go really quickly, but even still, it’ll be a push to get it done, but this would push me over 100 minis for 2018…
Since everything is already lined with brown liner, the plan is:
Dirty Bone on all the bone and mummy wrapping!
Scorched Metal all the armor and weapons
Heavy Sepia Wash pretty much everything
Demi-Lich - Thinking green/purple flames?
Hecklemeyer - Black & White costume? Black, White, & Red?
Nefsokar mummies - Lots of gold and bronze.
Dust King - Seriously tempted to paint it up like the ice lich from Warcraft…
As for their bases? That’s a little more work. The skeletons, bone fiend, and maybe the dust king will get bases to match the flocking on the tombstones. The demi-lich and hecklemeyer will probably get some sort of sculpted flagstone base. The mummies? Haven’t decided. Seriously tempted to give them dungeon flagstone bases too…
Okay, so it’s really unlikely I’ll finish all of these in October, but maybe by November?
So I was really proud of this guy, am planning on submitting this for the inspiration Gallery
I think it was new for bones 3, so this may be one of the first painted.
Oh there is a metal version - sculpted and painted by DKS.
aw man.... I need to fix some stuff.
Also when I first based it the leaves were too bright and stole attention. (also a criticism of my Reapercon entry) So I tried adding some dull brown paint to tone it down.
I think it worked and may go back and do the same to Treetop Pheonix.
I finished the Obsidian Crypt from the Bones 3 kickstarter. I looked at lots of photos of old mausoleums for inspiration. Now, I just need to finish the fence and all of the main cemetery parts will be finished. Then just ghouls, golems, worms, etc to do to complete the entire expansion.
I had fun flocking the crypt. I resembled Oscar the Grouch by the time I was finished!
I put a couple flickering LED candles inside the crypt to emulate torchlight/candlelight and thought it turned out pretty cool!
Okay, I did not see anyone else post one of these (and yes I know it's a year late), AND if it is NOT allowed, MODS please delete. BUT, in case anyone cares to see, I have posted my long awaited Bones 3 Core Set unboxing. Enjoy.
