  1. Thanks Glitterwolf In looking at the one painted in the Reaper Online store, I may have thought about a lighter blue, and highlight the claws more... maybe I need to pick up another one so this guy has a cousin.
  2. This troll has been sitting for a year half painted, finally finished him. Any suggestions welcome.
  3. In reading a couple of threads "Metallics for classic steel" (I will have to try the Reaper Blade Steel and Blue Liner suggestion) and the "Magic Wash" thread, it reminded me of a mini I keep going back to. I had painted some chain mail on another mini with 09421 Frost blue (let dry), and then used 09312 Steel Wash (10-20% water) and it turned out nice. Matched nicely the plate armor pieces I worked up from black to light grey with multiple wet layerings. Spent a bit of time on the solid armor parts - Now the wash part took 5 minutes, maybe another 10 to let dry inbetween. So taking the Bandit leader -77507 I had prepped, I decided to do the quick armor and shield (not the sword) with the Frost Blue then Steel Wash (10-20% water) process. He was a bandit, so figured I could blast thru it and it would be good to put down for PCs to decimate. After I quickly painted it, I keep going back to it, as it looks great, but really took little effort on the armor. I have used washed somewhat before and still use some other brands, but this combo just seemed to look "right". Even though that some of the lt blue still pokes thru, it does not seem out of place. First time posting images (trying to make sure they are proper, but apologize in advance), and the colors are not that true (not a lighting expert), you may be able to get the idea... or at least try it. I did see another thread here about the Steel Wash and someone using it with some mixed results - I got my bottle of Steel Wash from the Kickstarter too, and it seems to work well for me.
  4. Just primed my Owlbear. 33 degrees F. (80% humidity) here in Michigan, in detached garage and it turned out fine and ready to paint after priming with Tamiya Lt Grey Fine Surface Primer. Note about the Black Bones, not bad for flash. It is more plastic and when file, it is (best I can describe it) as chalk like.
  5. I use Tamiya Fine Surface Primer on all my minis, including Bones and it does a great job. I use the Light Grey.... I picked up the Black Bones Owlbear and will test the Tamiya on that, and report how it turns out...
