Nice!  I especially like the vivid corn-husk-green gradient to the wing membranes.  

 Thanks very much!  I hadn't thought about it that way (the gradient).  But now that you mention it...yeah! Yeah it does kinda look like a corn-husk!

Thanks Glitterwolf! I had actually meant to go back and make the gradients a little smoother, but in the end, forgot completely about it.  Ah well, another finished mini, another learning experience! ::D:

Something about this paint job didn't feel quite right to me.  It took several moments of staring at it to figure it out:

 

In the fins along his spine, you've put the dark, cool greens closer to the body, and the blended towards bright yellows at the edge. That makes sense: the flesh would get thinner and allow more light to pass through it the closer you got to the edge.  But then, on the wings, you've reversed it: bright yellows near the bone, darker colors towards the edges.  It's a small thing, but my eye didn't want to resolve the figure properly.  The two opposing gradations fight with one another to a certain degree.

 

It's still a striking figure.  And probably most people won't notice.  Just something to think about for future!

:lol: Thanks!  For my part, I just see them as different parts of its body.  Indeed, the color on the back of the dragons wings is completely different. Sorry if that bugs you!

      I have finally started working on my many Bones minis. This first one is 773000 Antipaladin by Bobby Jackson. It is mostly an experimental/ practice piece. I am not completely happy with my mold line removal, but in this case I am not going to worry about it too much. Mostly it is to get me acquainted with working with Bones minis and to experiment with my new Scale 75 metallic paints. I am not happy with all of the photos, my old photo setup got broken and I haven't gotten it replaced yet and just as I was taking these pictures one of my light bulbs went out and I don't have a replacement. Should be able to get better pics once I get a new bulb.
       
      First off I base coated the cape with Nightmare Black. This was a new paint purchase and I wanted to play with it. Really like this color.
      Next I used Faded black to Undercoat the skulls on the armor. I'm planning to do these in a metallic steel. Used Tanned skin as a base coat on his head.
      Next came Ultramarine Shadow for the armor undercoat. I really like this color for this as I am going to do the majority of the armor in a dark blue steel tone. The only down side is that the blue colors are fairly transparent and so take several coats to get good coverage.
       
      Looks like I am having some chipping issues, but I think I have that issue solved. Hope to get some more work done on him soon if life doesn't make me do other things first

      I love this figure.
      Not so much the bendy weapons, but I straightened them out.
      They have bent back a little (Sword).

      I did a WIP on him.  Thanks for the encouragement along the way.
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/80720-kord-the-destroyer-bones/
       
      He is another for our Reign of Winter Adventure Path.  My DM said "Vikings."  Kord has that vibe for sure.
       

       
      I tried to paint the base like grass.
      The hardest part was the nmm on the axe, and trying to get the runes to show up on the sword.  It's a very irregular axe shape, so it was tough to figure out how to do it.
      My green stuff patch job on the wolf pelt was not the greatest, but it is decent enough camouflage.
      The second-hardest part of the figure to me was figuring out what parts of the pelt were what.  What is tail? What are legs?  I did my best.
      Overall, I'm pleased with him.  He seems like such a bad-a$$.
      As for the pics, iPhone seems to be good for far away, but really "blobby" for up close.  Maybe it is suffering from zoom.
      C&C Welcome.

      First up is Terezinya, Bonepander Wizard (Reaper 77173).  She had been sitting on my paint desk partially painted for so long that her base got dusty, oops.  She always gave me a pirate wibe, hence the plank base.




      Nienna, Female Elf Ranger (Reaper 77091) is another one that sat partially painted for a really long time.  All that green, how do I paint all her knickknacks in an interesting way without making her stand out in forest?  Finally just brute forced it to get her done.


       
      Trista, the White Wolf (Reaper 77094), she didn't languish as long as the other two, but like normal I got stuck on deciding on colors for all the details.  But with 3 off the desk of shame I can start on something new!

      In response to a local club challenge, I painted this dwarf in 3 colors chosen by a computer program.
      written by @SirLarpsAlot
       
      Golden Yelllow, Winter Blue and Leather Brown + B&W 
       
       
      edit, I do need to fix that eye...
