    Blacksting Wyvern (speed paint)

    The rocks recipe is quite easy: Mix of Tan, Cinammon Brown and Black at different random ratio for the base colours. Apply to stones randomly (don't really need to be neat) to get some variety Cover with a "poor man's blackwash" (dollar store craft paint watered-down a lot). This lets the sculpt texture do all the work on shading. Some Agrax earthshade in the recesses to hide the crimes light stippling on a few rocks (to be fancy)

    Blacksting Wyvern (speed paint)

    This is my take on the Bones 4 Blacksting Wyvern. Definitely not to the level of the beautiful one from Sirithiliel. But I’m pretty pleased with it. I used a lot of shortcuts to get the most bang in the least amount of time : “blending” with airbrush, overuse of washes, and “dirty” feel to hide the crimes. This sculpt was a pleasure to work on and the large wingspan really makes it stand out (and hard to take pics of).
  6. This project was initiated by a little failed experiment with 2 parts epoxy resin (for water effect) that snowballed into a completely unrelated diorama. I put a kelpie in a clear tube and poured epoxy resin on it. There were too many bubbles in it. But this reminded me of the round aquariums so often pictured in mad scientists’ lab. The closest mini for scientists I had, were 2 chronoscope Bones. The furniture and decor is a mix of handmade (foam, clay, random recycling), Boardgame spare pieces (Dungeon Saga) and Bones. C&C welcome.

    Blacksting - Bones 4

    This is beautiful ! And the patience to do the colour combination on each scale is to be commended.
  8. To change from fantasy, I wanted to do a quick paint of a Chronoscope mini in Bones. According to the store, it is "Frank Buck, Adventurer". I like the sculpt and its likeness to a very famous archaeologist / adventurer in the movies. My goal was a quick & simple paint job and nothing fancy for the base. The problem was that the mini was badly bent at the ankles making it lean forward a lot and no boiling/cooling was able to fix it. So, I still had to re-base it, and got a bit carried away in the re-basing process which yield to this mini vignette: "Heading into the Jungle" The tree and base texture was made with Scupley and lichen. The car is a Tamiya model kit of a Russian field car.

    Graveyard Golem (77526)

    Hi all, Here is my take on the Graveyard Golem that came with the Crypt expansion in Bones 3. I tried to give its eyes an eerie glow to show what evil animates it and it also matches the glow in painted on the runes inside the crypt.

    Ritterlich Cataphract - Christmas Exchange!

    This is a beautiful Stompy Robot. I love how you managed to black line and highlight all the details while keeping a military 2-tones colour scheme

    Crypt - graveyard expansion

    The glowing effect was done by starting with the painted floor (gray + black / brown wash). Once dry, I heavily diluted some white and put it in the crevices so the next colour will pop. Finally, I put some heavily diluted "neon green" craft paint for it to pool in the crevices, and spread it a bit more with my fingers around the runes to give the osl look. It didn't take that long as it was mostly base coat, wash, dry brush with the exception of the green glow. I'd say a couple of hours (give or take) without counting the dry time for the washes (that took forever for such a large piece)

    Crypt - graveyard expansion

    Hi, I finally managed to post some pictures of the Crypt from the Bones 3 graveyard expansion I painted. I went with a simple paint scheme with a heavy dose of washes and over-brush + dry-brush to cover these large areas and keep them interesting. For the inside, I decided to give the markings on the floor an eerie glow and had fun practicing with my airbrush on the tiles. I really like how they molded the door hinge to allow it to swing open. It allows for some fun pics.. Peek a BOO!

    Terran Infantry for CAV

    Hi, I found a pack of these little buggers in the 1$ bin of my FLGS. They are 15mm "flames of war" minis (WWII type) and I though I could try to make use of them for my CAV infantry. I just modernized them a bit with some green-stuff goggles (which has the advantage of not making me paint eyes on 15mm minis and match the canopies of my Terran CAV) and did speed paint. Here is the result: They are a bit big for CAV, especially next to a transport vehicle, but they will do for the purpose of the game. Other pic for scale:

    Time to reflect (vignette)

    Hi, I painted "Eric, the Paladin initiate" as a random mini from Bones 2. I like his contemplative look and pose... So I decided to make a little vignette/diorama by adding one of the graveyard statue from Bones3. I call it "Time to Reflect". The base is an Orange juice cap, and the tree is from Woodland Scenic.

    Bones - Carrion Worm

    Hi, Here is my take on the Carrion Worm from Bones 3 Graveyard expansion. The chubby and cute look (if you forego the big fangs) made me want to paint it a bit like a pink grub. C&C welcome
