    Hello all forum family, wanna share whit you my last work: Garghuk, Ogre Chieftain, the free Black Bones June mini. Tryed another skin type on him , something pretty dark, and to give him the most natural look possible, choosing my palette colors do not have too much contrast (just a complementary contrast between the sash and the browns). Pretty happy of the outcome, I hope you will like him too! Every comment, advice and/or criticism is welcome as always! Thanks fo watching :)

    This was the must-have from Bones 4 for me! I cut off and modded the legs and created the base with apoxie sculpt so the hut can be placed on its own or on the legs. The paint scheme is "chicken" ;) I can't even remember all the colors I used on this thing, it was a mad mix of Reaper browns and golds, Pokorny terracotta, homemade washes, and I pretty much just kept going at it until I was happy. I hit everything with a matte varnish except several coats of gloss varnish on the window glass.

    I posted this to the Facebook group and totally forgot to post them here: Basecoat with P3 Thrall Flesh, wash the entire model with fluorescent green ink, then spray P3 Sickly Skin from the top down. When you shine a UV light on it, the green glows!

    I'm painting again after a looong absence. The colour scheme was inspired by Australian Frilled-neck Lizards and Thorny Devils. Base was extended with an MDF circle, cork, stones, and green stuff. I used my airbrush to prime it all and lay down the base colours, then lots of hand-painting, washing and drybrushing.

    Tabletop cultists for my dnd game. I wanted them to have a look that I could either use to be sinister and evil, or even 'good' cultists that have gone too far...the leaders feature red and blue while their subordinates feature green and blue. I chose to do metallic masks of varying metal types and shades. My goal was to work on the speed at which I paint things like NMM so that I can get results without agonizing as I might for a competition piece.

    "I need a swig of some strong, Dwarven ale!" -Baldur's Gate Jalarak Leadbarrels, stepping out of the Firendly Arm Inn, bringing the next round to his waiting adventuring party. (1368 DR, Colorized) (Ignore the water spots on my backdrop. I have cats and they knock things over and don't tell me about it. I have to find out later, for myself.)

    First post in a while. Did this guy up from bones 4 yesterday and I thought it was the perfect chance to try some lighting effects. So this is my first time using OSL. C&C appreciated!

    Hello all, another figure I just finished, an old Ral Partha figure, which I think might have been part of their redesigned Partha Imports back in the day. And of course, she's dressed extremely sensibly, as if she's screaming "you will NOT stab me in the nipple!". She was fun to do however, nice big face and a simple piece to paint. So anyhoos, enjoy!

    Finished up this crabby fellow today. He is one of my favorites from the Bones 4 set. Was a breeze and a joy to paint.

    Another Bones 4 elf. I was not at all excited by these minis during the Kickstarter. But now that I've started painting them I realised the sculpts are actually quite nice. The whip on this mini in particular is quite unique and striking. For this one I was going for a inquisitor look, with a red coat with silver and black details. Then I decided to give him white hair, until I realised I basically made him Dante from Devil May Cry. C&C welcome.

    I just got a raise! A whopping $1.65/hr at that! And that's just a departmental raise! I get a 2.5% cost of living adjustment next Monday. With my shift differentials I will be making over $20/hr next month! I am a very, very happy man today.

    This is the Bones version of Merrowyn Lightstar, Female Elf Paladin (03764) from the Bone 4 Core Set. NMM is de rigueur these days but I still like metallics for, well, metal. I used Vellejo Brass, Old Gold, Gold and Silver along with Seraphim Sepia ink and a variety of browns to build up the shadows and highlights. I sometimes go back and forth deciding a colour scheme but when I saw this figure I knew her armor had to be gold. The red and black was inspired by Gilgamesh from Fate/Stay Night (I saw a chibi toy version on Pinterest and thought "That's the look I want!").

    I filed the ears to be human and popped him on a cool base. This is the figure for our new player. He's playing Galad Heartwood, a vampire slaying ranger/barbarian. I kinda feel bad putting it on the tabletop because it turned out so well. Pictures are better than last time but not great. I put a backdrop on edge of windowsill while light was okay, plus a lamp, and used my phone. As it turns out, shading Reaper forest green with nightshade purple and s75 slimer green and cokum copper (a very orange brown) turns out way cool. Went up to linen white + bit of copper. NMM armor was just black and white and weathered stone. The blades were black, coal black, snow shadow, and white to make them kinda blue-green steel.... then I did a wee glaze of an auburn color (red-orange). It is just enough to fool the eye and looks friggin rad in person. The bow has wood grain. The tortoise shell has shell patterning. If my player breaks the glued in arm off or damages this I drop a meteor on him. Figure is pretty well sealed at least.

    Yet another figure from my wish list that came as part of the Reaper Bones 4 Kickstarter. This is the Bones version of Willow Greenivy, Witch (03682). I recently discovered the Bird with a Brush blog by the most excellent Rhonda Bender and the thought process and approaches discussed were a real eye opener for me. I actually took a variety of pictures under different light sources and picking my favourite, used it as a map for my lights and darks. I feel it made a huge difference for me. If you are interested in improving, do yourself a favour and bookmark that blog!

    Picked this guy up awhile ago and finally decided to paint it up. A fun project and my fist resin pour with open sides. The mini itself needed a bit of work to reposition and the arms are a tad flimsy. Not perfect But i'm happy with it. Love to hear what you all think.

    And good evening again! And quite in contrast to the other figure I just posted, this little thief is quite a bit more sensibly attired, covering herself up relatively decently I'd say. I think this is also sculpted by Dennis Mize, but not 100%. Once again, as per usual, my hardest decision is always colors, so used Terran khaki for her main skin color and kept some cool colors with her wardrobe mostly. The only thing that didn't really work out like I wanted was that on her boots she had laces going up them, but I just kind of highlighted them a little and didn't do anything with them, because her left leg is bent down so much, even though they were sculpted there I couldn't really reach them very well. Other than that though pretty happy with how she came out. She has sort of an odd vest that is open in the front and then ties closed in the back, but at the end of the day that's how she was sculpted, so just obeyed the sculptor! Once again, may she not be painful upon your eyeballs!

    Oddly these are the first two models I painted up from Bones 4. It just sorta happened. Added a bit of 'stuff' to the altar, the books alone seemed a bit empty.

    A player in my game made this in HF. Felt my layering and blends level up with this one. Also added gloves, bowtie and a rose using greenstuff. Enjoy

    So I had this idea that Viridius was a forest dragon, and that his scales would color with the leaves of his trees. I started on him about 6 months ago and finally finished him this weekend. Big pictures so i'll spoiler most of them but I'm very happy with how he came out. Going to be doing some additional work on my basing game in the future. Pictures are the best I can do at this time, he's way too big for my photo box, so I did my best to set up some canvases around to reflect light around as much as I could. Want more? Here's the WIP thread

    I knocked this one up last night. I couldn't believe how small the figure is but it was fun to paint, and I'm still trying to get the hang of layering rather than drybrushing to highlight cloth. I basically ripped off the colour scheme of the example on the Reaper site. The "floorboards" are strips of plastic card. She (for some reason I keep thinking of the mini as a she) was a bit lost even on a 10mm base so I added the dried bloodstain. I'm not sure if it's worked but I couldn't think of anything else to put there. My girlfriend upon seeing this: "You've finished another one? Let me have a look GET THAT THING AWAY FROM ME IT'S HORRIBLE!" Kevin Williams did a fantastic job on making such a small sculpt be so unbelievably creepy.

    Presenting the Scarab Mummy, a minion for the Egyptian faction in the game Twisted, he's a mummy that's been redesigned to have a more pleasing beetle theme (which I guess technically makes him more of a Flesh Golem). Had a lot of fun with this one, I'm still pretty bad at painting gems but I think I'm getting better. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
