  1. Those are the two primary colors I am working with. I always like Haku from Spirited Away and was curious how that color scheme would work on a traditional dragon. I might test a few slight color variations, but nothing drastic.
  2. Over the last few days I've been juggling a lot of WIPs. In addition to the paladin I am trying to paint a full party of characters for an ongoing RPG, plus all the baddies for adventures. Tonight I switched to painting something just purely for the fun of wanting to paint it - just paint whatever I wanted so painting wouldn't start becoming a chore for RPG games. One of the THERE BE DRAGONS Bones miniatures was calling me. The one I chose was the smoother of the two. Because it lacks any scale details I envisioned him as a sleek river dragon. The two primary color combinations I want
  3. Has anyone experienced the boiling process not holding? I have watched the video and boiled several Bones miniatures to re-position them, but a few Bones figures are not staying in the new position. Boil for 1-2 minutes, re-position, then a cold ice water bath for a minute. Am I missing something here? The Bones figure that is giving me the most trouble at the moment is the Gargoyle. I bought him at my FLGS in a blister pack. In order to fit in the blister pack his wings were bent straight back,. I have tried boiling this poor mini five times now in order to get the wings to curve
  4. My demon came with two heads. I was wondering if someone else's package was missing a head as a result.
  5. I believe I saw the runes first in the Inspiration Gallery. The runes I did are different, but the original concept was not mine. Theirs was a linen white ribbon with blue runes. Very pretty.
  6. Completed the steel armor today. Honed steel with black was used for the shadows. Polished silver with white for the highlights. No changes to the gold yet. Made improvements to the face with some brown liner and tanned skin. I realize that with all the beasts and baddies I paint that this is the first human face I have painted all year. Oiy. Finally, I used Nordic runes to spell out "holy" on the front of the fabric, then "bless" and "just" on the back. Originally I wanted the runes in gold, but it did not stand out enough so I switched to pure white. More to come later this week.
  7. Some more speed painting practice. These figures are about.... 50% done.... maybe. I needed to throw together a trio of demonic casters last minute for a RPG this Sunday. I just happened to have had three Pathfinder Seltiel Iconic Eldrich Knights lying around so I they suffered the wrath of a bad paint job. My boyfriend literally dragged me out of the door to head to our game store with a paintbrush in hand yelling "They aren't finished yet!" I actually rushed too much for my comfort level so I will be backpedaling on these guys to fix mistakes before finishing them. Add it to a gro
  8. Progress! I won't be completely satisfied until I give him a proper base, but right now he is good enough to throw on a table for a game. Wish I had filled the shoulder gap, but for a speed job I'm happy with the results.
  9. Ha! I'm started down the same road to have too many WIPs going at once. I am surrounded by so many wonderful heroic human fighters and casters, but yet I keep finding myself painting beasts and baddies. I suppose that is what happens when you GM RPGs rather than play them. Speaking of other WIPs.... has anyone considered painting the Pathfinder goblins like fire imps? I have so many goblin minis already but none in the way of imps. They look a bit impish to me with those ears.
  10. I just started this guy last night. He definitely does look like he's falling on one arm, but as LittleBluberry mentioned the metal cast looks the same. If anything I think it makes the Owlbear look more crazed. Mine had some gaps near the shoulder joint as well, but it was covered up nicely once I started painting. The only issue I have with this mini is that the base is so flimsy. Giving the mini a stronger base may help support the leg better so the wing doesn't dip down so much.
  11. Still painting, but not finishing much yet. I can't seem to complete a mini before needing to move on to another for one reason or another. Because I'm on a time crunch I forced myself to try some speed painting tonight. I think I picked a bad mini to try speed painting on because the Owlbear eats up paint like no tomorrow. At least he doesn't need to look pretty. All Owlbears deserve crazy eyes.... Added some skin tone mixed with a drop of orange and pink for the tongue and around the more fleshy spots near the claws and wing membrane. Then went over the brown with anot
  12. Just to clarify - the Saproling Warriors are not Bones. They are part of the Warlord army packs. http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/ent/latest/06202 The height can be seen here: http://www.reapermini.com/graphics/gallery/4/P06202A_w_1.jpg http://www.reapermini.com/graphics/gallery/4/P06202B_w_1.jpg They are a little on the small side which is why I wanted to add some height to them. The minis alone are slightly smaller than a standard human figure, but taller than a dwarf. The base is a standard 1" plastic base. Think of them more like baby Ents. The detail and faces on the
  13. Change of pace away from Bones tonight..... I got tired of staring at scales so I switched to a horse. This used to be a unicorn, but not anymore. This will be a palomino horse for my paladin in an ongoing 13th Age RPG. Skin tone: Mix of Oiled Leather / Tanned Leather Mane / Tail: Mix of Golden Blonde and Linen White Speaking of RPGs, here's another work in progress that I started awhile back for a game that I really need to finish. This is a set of nine 06202 Saproling Warriors that I wanted to use as Ents for the Wild Woods. I love the figures, but I wante
