  1. one recommendation that I got from a coworker was to go with a rust color sort of like this iguana: https://depositphotos.com/135512250/stock-photo-extreme-close-up-male-green.html I think I might go this route, although still up for ideas if anyone has any.
  2. All right, I need a couple of opinions here. I've started this model and I like the progress on it so far. Eventually I want to do a OSL in his mouth like he's about to breath fire, so that will be fun learning how to do that. But, while I have a few things that I can do to continue working on it, two items have me stumped how I want to handle them. First, the horns on his head. I thought about doing a bone look - ie lighter bone colors layered. Only issue is, I did an almost bone color on the shoulders, feet, and tail, and I'm afraid the horns (and subsequently the head) wouldn't stand out. So, opinion one needed: Should I do a darker bone color for this, like start with a darker brown and work my way up? Or, would a normal bone color look ok? Second, the spines on the back. I was thinking about doing a lighter green as the base color (think about lighter pea green), washed with a brown wash, then drybrushed with a light blue on the edges to sort of make it pop. I'm not sold on that. Any thoughts? I usually don't have issues with deciding what colors to do when I'm this far into painting, but I really can't come up with something I think will look good. The darker color horns I was thinking of doing was like what I did with my Ma'al Drakar, like this:

    Dance of Death

    Nice seeing a Dance of Death being painted! I have mine assembled, but haven't even thought of painting it yet (too much other stuff in line before it LOL). Great progress so far!

    Bones 4 Zombie Dragon

    Thanks everyone :) For anyone interested, the way I got the slick look is I painted using the innards pink from the Bones 4 KS set, then used the technical from GW called Blood for the Blood God (it's like a water effect but blood colored). Felt it was a bit apropos for the look of the mini!

    Bones 4 Zombie Dragon

    Not sure how I found time to work on this one, have had way too much going on, but I somehow managed it. One thing I did differently with this one is that the dragon itself, I didn't base in black before I painted everything. I don't like this method as much... I know Bones can take the paint right on the mini, but trying to get all the white covered was a huge pain (I kept finding places where the paint didn't go down into the crevices), and the blue for some reason didn't coat very well, despite using at least 4 layers. But, it still turned out well, so I'm not completely unhappy. I don't know why I didn't black base coat it before starting, and I will definitely continue doing that from here on out.

    First Bones 4 painted figure

    My first ones painted were the Ghost Pirates. Haven't been sitting still since, having done the Dragon Turtle, the Triceratops barbarian, the Thunderfoot behemoth, and the Zombie Dragon. Currently working on the first of 2 Argents! Of course, the reason for these being first was finishing the ghost ship I started:

    Bones 4 Dragon Turtle

    Any thoughts on what would work better for the eyes? I tried to base what I did off of pictures I found of the eyes of actual sea turtles, and their eyes seem to be darker.

    Bones 4 Dragon Turtle

    Spent what little free time I had over the weekend wrapping up my dragon turtle. Extremely fun piece to paint!

    Roc as Thunderbird

    I really like it! The main reason I didn't get Roc was that I had no idea how I would paint it (I'm terrible with feathers), and seeing yours, that really makes me sad I didn't get it to try. You did a great job!

    Thunderfoot behemoth - Bones 4

    For anyone interested, the base color for the horns was GW Markarth Flesh before being washed with GW Agrax Earthshade. I think that was what I used, although I might have also used the Vampire Shadow, since that is essentially the same color and I have both sitting right next to each other in my paint box LOL

    Bones 4 prehistoric Triceratops man

    I don't know if I have ever seen, do we know what this guy/girl is called? Anyhow, getting some painting done before summer classes start up with my Bones 4 stuff, and got this guy done. I'm not sure why I had so many issues with focusing on the mini when trying to take the pictures, so I apologize for the crappiness of them. Next up after this: Dragon Turtle!

    Thunderfoot behemoth - Bones 4

    If I recall correctly, this is the process I used: base (all but stomach): GW Castellan Green (I think, I'll have to double check, it was either this or WAAAGH! Green) base (stomach): Privateer Press P3 Trollblood base Markings (none on stomach): Reaper Bones 4 Styx Purple layered up with Sorcerous Mist If you notice, there are some purplish areas around the eyes and the nose area. These I did in the Styx, then only put one mark of Mist on the front of the nose area. There are circular designs on the frills, and stripes on the body Wash: GW Agrax Earthshade (brown) on stomach and body Highlight on stomach: P3 Trollblood highlight Dry brush on body/stomach: light dry brush of P3 Bootstrap Leather, then another light drybrush of P3 Rucksack Tan, then a VERY light dry brush of GW Pallid Wych Flesh Horns/beak/toes: I'm going to have to figure out what I used for the base color, I can't remember. But, I did use that color, then washed with Agrax Earthshade, then highlighted up with Pallid Wych Flesh Eyes: White (base white, can't remember what brand I used), bright orange (Reaper IIRC), with a slighly diluted wash of GW Casandora Yellow

    Thunderfoot behemoth - Bones 4

    Thanks again everyone :) Next up is the Dragon Turtle! I found some pictures of sea turtles and am using them as inspiration for it. Will definitely be posting that one when I'm done!

    Thunderfoot behemoth - Bones 4

    Thanks, guys! It was a fun one to paint! I am trying to decide what to paint next. I am futzing around with the barbarian triceratops man while I decide what I want to paint next...

    Thunderfoot behemoth - Bones 4

    After finishing up the ghost pirates for my ghost ship, I moved on to the next inspiration I had for my Bones 4 pledge minis, the Thunderfoot behemoth! I almost went with the Blacktooth Terror, but I need to do some gap filling on that one and figured the Thunderfoot I could just paint away since I had a little free time the last two nights. I was hoping the designs I put on before doing the washes and drybrushing would have stood out more, but overall I still like how he turned out!
