  1. As always, catching up on this thread has been a delight, and a source of inspiration and wonder. I love the mad genius of your creations mal! Thank you for sharing them with us!

    Anyone feel like joining me as I actually manage to paint some stuff this evening?

    Shh! You don't see me!

    No comment on how much blood I've shed on and because of miniatures...

    Hi all! I should paint minis and stuff again, eh?

    Hell hounds from Bones 4

    Ask and ye shall receive! ... Yeah, I'm slow, and I have very little time to paint. But at least it's progress. Going to be reducing the width of the pink cracks, especially on the face... Right now I'm focusing mostly on getting the shapes blocked in, but the colour is starting to hide the sculpt rather than enhance it... Still having fun though.

    Hell hounds from Bones 4

    I think I found the one angle where that happens. It really is a lovely sculpt. Thank you! Oh yes! I'm having fun painting these. It definitely helps that I've given myself permission to fail - if they end up looking like garbage, oh well, it's still an interesting experiment. Takes a lot of the pressure off!

    Hell hounds from Bones 4

    Getting into more Bones 4 goodies. (For once being in Canada is to my advantage when it comes to shipping!) Doing some frankly ridiculous hell hounds from the Fan Favourites expansion. Ridiculous because of the colours I've chosen, to be clear - the sculpts are delightful, if a little more explicitly male than I might have preferred... This first one is going to have a pink glow in all the cracks. The goal is to look sort of like lava only weird and magical. Not sure how well it's going to look but we'll find out! First step was to paint the poor beastie pink... Really only the cracks needed to be pink but there are so many cracks and I was so tired when I was doing this that I just slopped pink everywhere: Then tonight I started to go back and make the dark plates: Hopefully more tomorrow!

    I have a pepto-bismol-pink hell hound sitting on my desk right now. Just thought y'all would like to know.

    Isobael the Bard

    Calling her more or less done... There's a lot more I COULD do but I think if I push it I'll stop having fun, so I'm going to quit while I'm ahead and come back to her at some point to give her a real base.

    Isobael the Bard

    Getting close to the limits of my skills, but I'm having fun in the meantime. She's a super fun figure to paint.

    Outside of studio models... maybe? I think I win for first person to post about putting paint on a Bones 4 figure, anyway!

    Starting in on Bones 4 already! (It's impolite to ask how I'm doing on Bones 3.) And I had to start with Izzy, because Izzy. Just roughing in some colours, and sadly had only a couple minutes to paint tonight and part of that went to cleaning up some of the disaster from the last time the kids painted. Suggestions on colours for the rest of her would be greatly appreciated!

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Quick update... Decided to dig into the Fan Favourites expansion and pull out this lady. The one from the KS is on the left, the bonus mini from an order is on the right. The bonus mini from last month is much darker but otherwise it seems to be the same material, or at least very similar in terms of density and hardness. Gonna take some boiling to get the KS one to go together properly... Right now it's got ridiculous gaps. Actually, "going to need boiling" is definitely a theme so far in the minis I've examined...
