This is great!  Well executed with so many wonderful details.  The stained glass is a nice touch.

Thank you!

I lined the stained glass with Reaper Walnut Brown and used Inks from the Scale 75 Inktense Ink set for that.

Stupendously spooky! Excellent work! Definitely makes me want to bust out my Obsidian Crypt, though that will have to wait until I successfully move. :p

SPLENDID! Graveyards are my favorite scenery subject; re,  there is SO many things you can do with the setting.

Your graveyard is a DELIGHTFULLY overgrown creation. All the little details make the piece. VERY NICELY DONE!

Thank you!

This is a smaller crypt than the Obsidian Crypt, I put Kaladrax on that one!

 

Good luck moving!

Hope you can set up hobby space soon!

Thank you Al!

Building terrain is fun!

 

I have another one of these crypts with a different roof.

That one will be placed more diagonal on a base thanks to your earlier comments about placement.

I'm getting addicted to creating terrain pieces.

Thanks! And yes, one of the goals of the move is to have a dedicated hobby space when I get there, as opposed to the dining room table that I use now. Fortunately I still have a little time before the house goes on the market, so I can finish a few projects first!

I always have to set up on either the dinner table, or like today when the weather is good, on the garden table.

15 minutes set up, 15 minutes breaking down.

There is no room for a dedicated hobby space.

 

Later when one or both vixens have fled the nest I will have room.

Just hoping I can still paint then.

 

Small problems.

I get a lot of hobby time during weekends or evenings when my girl works or when she reads or does some gardening.

So I shouldn't complain really.

Fantastic! I really like how you used bright colors and autumn-like vegetation instead of the typical dank, grimdark type setting.

So cool!  I love your display pieces!

 

Also the over growth is really cool and is a good juxtaposition of life and death.

I appreciate it and when a Necromancer likes it, I know I did well...:poke:

      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.

      The thread about the Drider and centaur I Frankensteined up from some Reaper and Citadel parts reminded me of this little gem I put together this summer as part of a coterie of Drow.
       
      I was originally inspired by the Reaper Bones Conversions thread Chaoswolf started, which had some cool examples of substituting Bones torsos on the Bones Dark Elf Arachnid Warriors. Since Bones are so easy to cut and carve up and glue together, I thought I'd give it a try.
       
      So this is the spider body from Reaper #77182, Arachnid Archer, and the upper half of #77057, Juliette, Female Sorceress. I carved her carefully to leave a peg for the spider body, and I've carved out little sockets on the spider body for the bags and flasks around her waist.

       

       
      This is a dry fitting, where you can see the way the two pieces more or less fit together under the waist:

       
      Here she is glued. I used epoxy (I know, I know, but I like its space-filling qualities). I left it thin on the back of her torso and added another layer once it had dried, let it get to the gloopy sticky phase, and carved some striations in it with a bamboo skewer to match the hairiness of the spider body.

       

       
      Here she is primed with Reaper Brown Liner, ready to paint:

      Hi there!  You might remember me from such threads as "Bones!  Do they blend?" and "How to use Tamiya Clear Paints to varnish your translucent patio furniture!".  I don't paint much over the Southern Hemisphere Winter, as I'm too busy snowboarding, but now that the sun is out again it's time to start working through my Immortality Shelf and get some paint on some figures.

      Today we're looking at the Blackstar Corsairs:  80080: Blackstar Corsair Echo, 80079: Blackstar Corsair Delta, 80078: Blackstar Corsair Charlie, 80077: Blackstar Corsair Bravo, and 80076: Blackstar Corsair Alpha. 
       

       
      In general these have all been painted up as a unit, using a speed paint method.  The undercoat is MSP 09066 Blue Liner.  The main base color is MSP 09288 LED Blue, shaded down with a succession of glazes of MSP 09280 Nightmare Blue.  I love the shading this gives, it's a very striking effect.  The visors I've done using a base coat of MSP HD 29806 Fireball Orage, working up to MSP 09051 New Gold, and then layering over Tamiya X-24 Clear Yellow.  This gives a great depth of color to the visor, and is supposed to look like the gold leaf covering a traditional spacesuit visor.  The back power packs are basically a MSP 0939 Pure White base, worked up to Fireball Orange on the central core & MSP 09094 Clear Red on the retaining arms.  Details have been picked out with Vallejo Model Air 71.064 Chrome.  The weapons are Blue Liner, dry brushed with VMA 71.073 Black Metal then knocked back with a wash of Nightmare Blue to tie them back to the rest of the figure even if only slightly.

      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
      Highlights

      Special Minis:
      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?

      for a 5E game.  That's about all I can do for my WIP's theme after only one session.  Mostly it will be monsters.  Maybe I can convince the DM to tell me what's coming so I can paint it.   These are just for tabletop, but my philosophy is you should still try something new on every piece, or at least work on getting better at something you can already do.  Which is why I started a WIP I wasn't even originally going to bother with - for an experiment.
       
      I was looking at the marsh troll and thinking "this would be a good candidate for glaze painting."  Now if you aren't familiar with glaze painting, it is where you prime white and then add washes/glazes of progressively darker colors.  It creates your midtone and shadows, then you go back in and add back the highlights.  You can do it for anything but it is ideal for textures.  Now Bones are white, but you can't just go over them with diluted paints.  Liner works well to prime, but then the mini is no longer white.  But wait, I have a large bottle of white craft paint that I used for some terrain.  What if I prime with liner, give it a heavy drybrush so the highlights are white again, and then glaze paint?
       
      Step 1: Brown liner + a heavy drybrush of white craft paint.
       

       
      Step 2: Green skin starts with yellow paint.  Here is a potential issue - the liner shifts the shadows to green.  As I want green skin this isn't an issue but it would be if I wanted my final color to be yellow.  I am also trying not to be messy as I would need to make any messes white again later.
       

       
      Step 3: Sap green diluted to a wash.  Now the skin is greenish.
       

       
      Step 4: A second wash of sap green in the shadows to add more depth.
       

       
      Step 5: His highlights are still pretty yellow in hand so I made a wash of anthraquinone blue.  It will make the yellow more green and further darken the shadows.
       

       
      Oh, I hit his front too.  It was really blue so I started the color shift with some phthalocyanine green ink.
       

       
      Interlude: Lem.  Needed for a PC.  Must be finished by Friday.  The troll is optional.
       

       
      Step 6:  All leather was hit with a couple of layers of burnt umber ink.
       

       
      Step 7:  The wood was coated with a mix of burnt umber ink and titanium white.  Some of the liner still shows through so the initial color is a little wonky in places.  Maybe it'll add texture to the wood....
       

       
      Step 7: Shade the wood.  Initially I used a burnt umber ink wash, but it wasn't intense enough and would end up  looking like the leather after a few more washes.  So I used the obvious wood shadow color, dioxazine purple ink watered down to a wash.
       

       
      From the front.  His belly got a wash of the burnt umber ink while it was out.  A couple more and it would turn olive, but maybe I'll leave it bluish.  While multiple washes have smoothed it out you can still see texture from the drybrush showing through.  It's an interesting effect here but won't always be desirable.
       

       
      Step 8: Call it a night and go to bed.  I have to work and make money after all.  We can't paint all the time.    Next update - unknown.  I really do need to finish the halfling bard before I play around anymore.
