    Darcstaar vs. BONES 1. Ep 2 Callie

    Haven’t had much time for her. This is a dilute highlight with 4:1 Rainy Gray:Carbon Grey. Next I plan to add a small bit of pure Rainy Grey, and some with Grass Green mixed in near the areas with green. That will wait until tomorrow.

    I like the atypical color scheme you picked. Always love seeing a picture of Mr. Bones painted up.

    I love it. A suitably fierce encounter.

    Calamari of Unusual Size (pic-heavy)

    Great work. I love the color variation on the tentacles as they approach the gaping maw.

    Thanks. @Corsair Glad you like them, they are definitely worth picking up next Christmas. They are nice and detailed, full of personality.

    01594 Yule Treant(s) by J. Guthrie

    I finished these in January. I just got around to photographing them. They may show up in our Reign of Winter campaign. The blue and red ornaments were an experiment with mixing regular paint with metallic medium. I wasn't trying to make their eyes look like they had pupils and were looking up. I was trying to make them look like soul-less lumps of ruby or amber, but I think the happy accident works fine. It makes them look like they are concentrating on getting the star onto their tree top. I painted them both the same base green, then washed them with different colors, one blue-green, the other green-brown. They then got hightlighted differently: One Moth Green, the other Olive Green. The result is some ability to differentiate them on the table even without the other differently colored details. Enjoy. C&C Welcome.

    Great modification. That brings him up to current standards nicely.

    Started shadowing the cloak. Dilute Carbon Grey. This didn’t seem dark enough, so I made it 1:1 Carbon Grey:Solid Black.

    I know! I thought about that, but ultimately decided against it.

    Bones 4 pig cart

    Excellent. That look on the pig's face... "I don't want to be doing this anymore!"

    Bones 4 Skeletal Chimera plus vampire rider

    This is all kinds of cool and fantastic! Great idea.
