  1. I am in the process of painting (for game play) some older figures (vintage, if you will) from yesteryear. I love painting these older figures...for some reason, I feel that they have a certain character to them that for some reason is lacking in a lot of the modern era figures/castings. Posted here are the following miniatures; PHOTOS 1-4...Ral Parth (Giant Skeleton # 02-940) circa 1985... PHOTOS 5-6...Grenadier (Death Lord # 150) circa 1986... PHOTOS 7-10...Alternate Armies (Chicol The One Legged # CM19) circa 1992... PHOTOS 11-14...Grenadier (Beholder # 104) circa 1984...

  2. Progress! I won't be completely satisfied until I give him a proper base, but right now he is good enough to throw on a table for a game. Wish I had filled the shoulder gap, but for a speed job I'm happy with the results.

  4. Well just spent the last five hours at my moms place painting minis with her, she kept bugging me to let her paint some so we decided it was mini time. Good i needed a push to start painting again. Played around with my new GW Texture paints I picked up, certainly faster than PVA Glue and sand lol.

  5. Hello everyone, Some of ya'll seen me pop in and comment once in a blue moon. I lurked around and ooh-ed and ahh-ed (still do) over everyone's painted miniatures. I joined this site back when the kickstarter was active and I have received my pledge (a few days ago actually). I remember reading somewhere that Bones were created to be simple to pick up and do stuff with. So I am going to try it out. My life with art: I have none. The last time I painted something was back in kindergarten or first grade (23-24 years ago) and it was water colors + hands on paper. Or according to my parents

  6. I can't remember the name of this mini, but I'm using it for a character of mine in a Pathfinder campaign for Jade Regent. I do remember that it was from the Anima line... I love the Asian touch to all of Anima's stuff. What do you guys think? I'm not great at them yet, but I am getting better. I did put a face on her later... but I forgot to get a picture of it. Faceless or not, what do you think?

  7. Hello! The arrival of the bonenami was initially elating and then overwhelming. Where to start? Do I dare put aside my terrible craft paint and start relearning how to paint with Reaper paint? I was seized with indecision. After two weeks of avoidance I came to the amusing (to me) decision to just keep working on the stuff in the queue, keep using crud paint while gradually working in a Reaper color here and there, and ignore the Kickstarter stuff altogether until I felt like it. Now I feel better. Meanwhile, here is something I did recently. I wanted to go bright as an experiment:

  9. First, for this paint job, I have to give huge thanks/props to paintminion, who did an unbelievable job on this guy earlier. Her paint job was so perfect, that I couldn't see this guy any other way, and I ended up using her's as my primary inspiration/guide for this effort. So thank you for your wonderful color selection! If you like my paint job, please go like hers as well! The basing on this was a lot of fun, and the first time I've ventured beyond simple gravel and flock. The rocks on the base are made of cork board, and a bit of modeling paste to give some m

  10. So... I got my bones a few weeks ago, if not a month. but with the new job i havent had a fraction of the time to jump in... but tonight I'm goint to start in on Nethyrmaul... a strange choice I think, considering the sheer number of minis I now have to paint. I'll post some pics later but I wouldn't expect any leaps and bounds... I intend to take it very slow and enjoy every second of it... Haven't yet decided specifially on coloring yet but i think I'm going with an iguana look to the scales and a dirty white/ yellow-teeth/brown look to the protruding bones. any advice or general tho

  11. I did more work on her. Since I have a cold, I did not interrupt the painting to take many in progress pics, sorry. I actually think she is done and I need to move on. Sans the base, of course. I will do that in a few days. Work done: - Highlighted the hair with different blues, a dash of silver for the top highlight, then washed back into the blues. - Done the metalics; dark steel as a base, black/brown washes, silver drybrush and brass touch-ups for a few pieces I choose to believe are coins used there for rattle/bling. Final very small touch-ups of pure silver (a craft paint I

  12. Here's Juggernaut or Red Hulk depending on how shading goes. Basecoat is a desaturared red. A mix if RMS Carnage Red, Delta Ceramcoat Tompte Red and Delta Soy Red Clay as well as Vallejo Stencil. Trying the basecoat is my highlight method on all of these. Did this before dinner, tacos, tonight at Family Game Night, Settlers of Catan with house expansions. More this weekend.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED-PROCEED WITH CAUTION. So this is what happened when I first tried to do some "advanced" basing with Betty. It's hideous, I know.And her familiar is the WRONG colour! But what I didn't know was how to fix this bloody mess. So I turned to my friends and asked for some serious critiques. Here are a few examples of the advice given to me. From

  14. Been a little while since I was able to paint, but here are a couple new ones. I haven't done the bases yet, as I can't decide if I want to keep them as is or do something more complex. Sorry about a couple of the pics, for some reason my camera doesn't always do well. Ragnaros the Evil Warrior: Mangu Timor: Black Orc Hero: Battleguard Golem (looks way better than these pictures show....): And Anvall Thricedamned: I used my dark flesh technique for Anvall. Worked pretty well on him :)

  17. I caught myself treating miniatures like work, so it was time to do a "fun" miniatures. I just got my hands on a container of Golden Coarse Pumice Gel and covered a square base as an experiment. I started painting it kind of like snow and I really liked how it looked, so I decided to make my fun miniature match the base. I wanted something I could stick on the already completed base, but that wouldn't take a lot of time, so I decided on the small spiders from the Vampire box. Those are fairly low quality sculpts, so I didn't feel bad spending less than 2 hours on him. Some people don't li

  20. Well, someone had to do it. Feel free to post your Bones goblins, kobolds, and rats in here. A lot of n00bz people new to miniature painting (including myself) had expressed interest in painting the rats first. They're small, don't have much detail, and are generally non-threatening. Just like a CR 1/3 creature should be. So here are mine. After some attention with my needle files and a good scrub, I started off with some black slobbering. Most of these were done with 9037 Pure Black, the two all-black tail-up rats with 9289 Noir Black, just so I could see the difference. Noir Black is

  21. Friday night I prepared my new nigh-invulnerable army list: Overlords. It was a simple list: Andras AriK 4 Onyx Phalanx 3 Crossbows ______________ Lorena Strach 3 Onyx Phalanx 2 Crossbows _______________ Onyx Golem _______________ Incarnation of Flame The strategy was going to be simple, using my Ranked and Lock Shields, pelt the enemy at range and rely on First Strike to murderize my opponent. All the while my mages would pound any troop concentrations with fire. So, what did Jason bring? That's right, Overlords! It was an Overlord/Overlord power struggle. He'll

  22. I just completed another novelty vignette for my private collection...I have titled it (The Streets of San Francisco)! The figures used were (Hasslefree - Old Man # HFV005 and Reaper Young Lady # 50157...Townfolk/Ladies of the Night). Hope that you find it as cute as I do!

  25. Here is my second entry into the contest. Unfortunately, she's the exact opposite of pulp (she's pop culture) so she doesn't get to go into the themed category. The colors were inspired by Megurine Luka's character art.

  28. Well alright, Here are some more up close pictures of my Goblinz. I feel like they look realistic, but, I realize they don't have nearly enough contrast. Any tips or advice are welcome. edit: I think these were taken before I lightened up and retouched the bases where the paint had worn off.

  29. Very good brush control, good use of colors. My honest opinion would be that the paint is a little too thick. Try using a wet palette. When doing pale skin really try to stay with the skin tone paints and move up to a white using skin tones lighter and lighter. Unless you were going for the porcelain look. And you will only get better with time. Try making the highlights stand out a bit more unless it is a base coat. Keep up the good work and your miniatures will be superb!

  33. This mini has been on my desk for a long time. She has been WIP for a long time. I wanted to redo the tattoos to include some of her skin color, so they would blend better. I had to attach her sword, tweak that, etc. I also had to work on the 'glow' on the hand, which I am frankly not that good at. Glows are hard. Since my players are meeting her this thursday I sort of had to go and finish her. So here is Isabella 'Inkskin' Locke, from Skull and Shackles! And here she is with another pirate lady. They blend pretty well, even though the color schemes are quite different. I like it

  38. Still painting, but not finishing much yet. I can't seem to complete a mini before needing to move on to another for one reason or another. Because I'm on a time crunch I forced myself to try some speed painting tonight. I think I picked a bad mini to try speed painting on because the Owlbear eats up paint like no tomorrow. At least he doesn't need to look pretty. All Owlbears deserve crazy eyes.... Added some skin tone mixed with a drop of orange and pink for the tongue and around the more fleshy spots near the claws and wing membrane. Then went over the brown with anot

  43. Updates, Updates! Since I am no longer on vacations, now I only have time to work on painting on the weekends. The mrs also want her share of time, and then the daughter... tough life But I put about 2 more hours on her this Sunday. Taking pictures is interesting, because I get to see the mini from new angles. A lot of mistakes also come to life, and the ones I cared about are sometimes lost the whole image. Anyway, I borrowed my brother's good camera, printed a background and snapped some pics. I have a whole lot of them to show, but will only post a few here. More can be fo

  44. Very cool! You're right about the tone of course, between the old and the new. Generally, these older sculpts had a tendency to be a little more cartoony, which of course really works at this scale. I don't know that I would've been able to resist the urge to paint that beholder with a moustache, though.

  45. Still nailing down where I'm going with it. It's a black dragon, so there's that :) Swamp creature, spits acid (Draco Causticus Sputem), probably some greens and browns. That's about the short of it. As far as inspiration pics, I've got about 30 I'm looking over for various reasons (one has cool eyes, etc). Paintings and illustrations as well as minis.

  46. I saw this on your blog yesterday and was hoping you'd give us some idea of the palette you'd chosen here on your thread. Do you have a picture or image that you are going to draw on for inspiration?
