  1. I started constructing my T'Raukzul about 9 months ago, The only structural work I did was in pinning the areas where the wings meet the body, I also filled any large gaps with green stuff. Other than painting her wings, I have not worked on her since.


    Looking at her today, I can report that her legs and stance are fine. Her right wing isn't however. Whereas before it stretched upwards higher than the left wing, it now curves from the "hand" to the two first long "fingers" to the same height as the left wing. It's not unattractive but it has definately wilted a bit!

    Great paint job!  I’d straighten that spear out. Boil some water, pour it in a coffe mug. Dunk just the spear and hand into the water. Hold it there for about 10 seconds. Take it out. Bend the spear just past where you want it to end up for 10-20 seconds. Presto!



    I did try this before painting & got it straight but ultimately the spear just went back to how it was. I will try again though.

    Very well done, now I feel the need to do mine. Do you prime your mini's before painting them? I find that brings out the details and makes painting somewhat easier.


    Many thanks!


    Generally, I don't bother priming "Bones" minis, I do with metal ones however. I have been known to give "Bones" minis a thin colour wash beforehand to give some definition. ::):

    I love the seaweed color, it creates a nice contrast with the skin tone and octopus.


    Thanks! It was quite difficult working out what was seaweed & what was clothing. There's actually a lot of details to pick out on this mini - octopus, crab, starfish, tiny barnacles & even the little bladders on the seaweed!

    Many thanks! I almost gave the octopus blue rings around it's legs.

  5. Greetings!


    I felt that "Dub" had something of a "Sinbad" feel to him so I painted his baggy pants & shirt in vibrant colours & contrasted these with a blue/green cloak. I kept his skin tone tanned but in retrospect, this does seem to be a little too close to his leather armor & braces for my liking.

    He does have a mold line right down the middle of his face which is unfortunate as it makes his nose & mouth look a little strange......
















    Thanks for looking!!
