  1. Here is the next figure on the list. Callie. I think it’s funny that episode 1 was Cassie, and right next to her is a figure with almost the same name. She had had a weird straight warp to the lower part of her bow. I boiled that out. It has stayed in the corrected position for a month now. This is after Brown Liner. It looks like an arrow coming out of the quiver, but strange it has no fletching....From the front, maybe a finger?

    Darcstaar vs. BONES 1. Ep 2 Callie

    Thanks! Black is tough. I see many peoples’ examples of it that I like, but have not figured out a technique yet that I love for painting rich blacks. Added the freehand to the cloak. It is a vine with leaves and thorns. The leaves are too small, but “good enough” to move on. I used the same colors as are found in the tunic.

    I made a small wash of Rainy Grey:Grass Green 1:1 and thinned it. I painted it on the cloak anywhere close to the shirt. Then I applied three dilute glazes of Nuln Oil. Good enough. Can’t really decide if it reads as black or dark gray.

    Thin layer of pure Rainy Grey.

    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.

    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.

    77195 Mr. Bones

    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.

    Stone Giant Conversion (Ral Partha 1988)

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

    Looks great!

    Pig and Cart Speedpaints (Bones 4)

  14. Here is a water elemental I finished a while back. Some of the pics look a little darker, as I messed with the gamma on the camera to try to prevent the white washing everything out. This is an oldie-but-goodie, with a sculpt that has a lot of character in the "face." I wanted it to look like it was coming up out of the water at the beach, so I made the base simple like beach sand. Enjoy. C&C Welcome, as always.

    Next is a dilute highlight with 2:1 Rainy Grey:Carbon Grey.

    Darcstaar vs. BONES 1. Ep 2 Callie

    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!"

    Excellent idea and well executed.

    Nagendra Snake Cultists Snakemen from Bones 4 (Pic Heavy)

    Great results. Wouldn't have known you did any conversions without you telling us. Very well done. I like the blue OSL you put on the spellcaster.

    Bones 4 Core Rate Ogre

    Really love the colors of the skin and fur. Perfectly gross sewer base!

    Darcstaar vs. BONES 1. Ep 2 Callie

    Here I have glazed over all the green with a very dilute mix of Glaze Medium, Matte Additive, and mainly water with a little Grass Green. This was about 3 applications. I like how it stays bright but toned down the glaring nature and chalkiness of the prior post.
