  1. Thanks 🙏🏽 surgery went well and the metal plate is holding the pieces together while it heals so at least I don’t have a cast, just a removable splint. Regaining all my hand/arm strength is going to be the big challenge.
  2. These were super fun to paint. Two twig blights and a needle blight/dryad. Really great minis, the twig blights are especially expressive.
  3. Another from my daughter. If it is a horse or dragon she usually grabs it first. 😁
  4. I have had a strange obsession with this creature since I saw it in the first monster manual. That drawing was so odd and fun it stuck with me. Had to make this one of my first Bones V paint jobs.
  5. Wasn’t sure how much time I would spend painting in the summer when my Bones V showed up, then I broke my arm. So painting it is since most physical activity is out for now. a bunch of quick and easy Stone based minis I knocked out. - Stone golem Bones V - great mini - clay golem Bones V - ok mini, weird in between size. Wish it was a bit bigger. - Stone wall spell Bones V - crypt Bones IV - statue Bones IV
  6. My daughter’s take on a white dragon with one of the old bones models. I really love the blue and pink tones.
  7. Have you checked your spam folder? My tracking email went to spam. I guess a company mass-mailing UPS links looks a bit suspicious.
  8. Got my shipping notice at 10:02 EST today. I am early Wave 1 (with dragon folk from the late container). Things are happening.
  9. Any idea what the delayed items are? I am not in a big hurry, but am a wave 1 backer in Canada with no notification yet.
  10. Another one by my daughter who is doing a lot more painting than me lately. Nice sculpt, but didn't have the motivation to deal with the Wizkids mold lines and over-priming.
  11. All credit to my daughter who painted this up and did a fantastic job on the water effect of this very nice sculpt by Julie Guthrie.
  12. I don't know what the late backer costs were, and this may be out of date, but I made it back during the Kickstarter. Hope it helps.
  13. Thanks! I will pass on the praise for her painting.
  14. Thanks for all the great feedback. I checked the left over primer in my wet palette and it looks like it separated (the second coat I put on did not separate), so I am going to assume I didn't mix it enough after not having used it for quite some time.
  15. Thanks! Trying to mod and paint metal again is reminding me how nice and easy it is to work with Bones.
  16. Howdy folks, Been a while since I painted a metal mini. I cleaned it with soap and water, let it dry, and then primed it with Vallejo brush on black primer. If I touch the mini even lightly after it has dried the paint comes off. Anywhere there is a high point I touch the metal shows through. What have I done wrong? Thanks
  17. I've had the bits and the idea for this one for a while. Finally got around to putting it together. The metal goblin is an old GW mini, with a newer head I got in a box of bits. The elephant is from a 15mm Seleucid or Indian army I did ages ago. The hands are from some arm sprues with spears and bows. Had to do some fiddling to make him left handed with the spear. Thought the overall concept would look interesting and different. Feedback welcome...
  18. My oldest daughter painted this one. I am not sure if she is done the base yet, but I am really liking the giant Venus fly traps that mimic the hydra.
  19. Had a lot of fun painting this guy. It was a nice diversion from trying to finish my customized frost giant princess that is taking far too long. I was thinking about trying to add some tattoos, but the musculature is so crazy over-the-top (in a good way) it seemed like it wouldn't look very good. Feedback welcome. Thanks
  20. I mentioned in my earth elemental post I started painting again after a break. My eldest daughter picked up the brush and started again, which is what helped lure me back. Here is a tiefling she painted up.
  21. Howdy folks, it has been a while since I painted or posting anything. Late February I stopped painting to take a break and pursue some climbing and getting back in better shape. Now that the cold is setting in again, it seemed like a good time to paint again. This is the first thing I chose and my new aim with painting is to enjoy it more, paint faster, and fuss less about little details. I am not a pro painter and doing it solely for my own pleasure. Need to remember that. This was a lot of fun to paint. I wanted to make it a bit more dynamic. These guys always seem to pop out of the ground, so I wanted to make the base look like the earth and grass was being heaved up. It looks like a simple sculpt of just rocks, but Kevin Williams put so much great detail into it.
  22. Dumb question. Anyone know when the deadline is for picking your sets and such? I have not been keeping up on this at all. Thanks.
  23. My daughter painted this one up. Her first time doing lava and glow effects. Think it turned out really well.
  24. Of course. Base coat is black primer. Then it is all dry brushing and dabbing with the dry brush. I try to avoid using a wash on rough stone as it mutes the texture. Dry brush layers, starting with a liberal amount and being more selective in where I do it as I go: dark stone (army painter), mountain stone (reaper), uniform grey (AP), foggy grey (R), and finally white, used sparingly to pick out edges and highlights. hope you get good results with that. Thanks for asking.
