  1. I just got my third, and it's glow in the dark, the other two regular. I figure if I don't like the glow in the dark, I will sell that one, otherwise I will sell one of the gray ones.
  2. I thought about that too, but then decided I just wanted two. But, I would say you won't have to worry about not making money off the second one. Matter of fact, I would say that you will probably be able to pay for both of them if you sell one. The official D&D ship (Falling Star Sailing Ship) is selling for 170 here, and it has cardboard floors, and this one is FAR superior (IMO). Heck.. I may have just convinced myself to buy a third and sell that one to pay for the other two....
  3. You only got ONE ship? LOL I already told my wife that we're going to have a shelf dedicated to a scene of a regular pirate ship being chased by a pirate ship crewed by undead pirates. I even ordered some scenery stuff from an etsy shop that had 3D printed barrels that have weapons, skulls and such to make them look like they are loot for an undead pirate crew, and will be using the pirate king shrine from the Brinewind Box Reapercon thing as what's driving the undead pirates :D Of course, I didn't want the Fan Favorites either, but once I saw the Mammotaur and the turtle paladin, I couldn't r
  4. So, thoughts on the underside of the wings? Should I do a similar look as the top side, but stop at a darker blue? Or should I do grays?
  5. Ok, didn't think I'd be able to get to this for a little while, but had a free minute and got a pic of the front. There will be more detail on the head and underside of the wings when I'm done, but this should give you a good idea of progress :) t'raukzul front
  6. Yeah, the wings on the back were still wet and with that lighting i would have had to put him on his back to get a pic of the front. I'll try to get a front pic later this afternoon.
  7. Since I got some inspiration after posting my request for color scheme help for this guy, I went ahead and started painting him blue! I'm actually quite far, but since his wings were still a bit wet I only got a pic of his back. I did wet blending on the wings, then did some more on the veins on the wings. I still have horns, claws, eyes, the ridges on his back, and the black wing areas to complete, but I'm happy with him so far! T'raukzul back
  8. Yeah. I have been trying to be good with kickstarters, not spending too much on them, but it's been tough LOL Almost got in on a 3D printer, but I have to be good, we're going to be moving hopefully next year so have to get finances in order between now and then. But, VI will be something I set aside some money for whenever it rolls around. Even at the 26 or so dragons I'll have by April, I could always use more, especially with how Julie sculpts them!
  9. That sounds familiar! LOL I said, as long as they don't have a bunch of dragons, I'm set. Then they did a pirate ship, the undead pirates, the undersea stuff, the stuff my daughter will love.... I'm saying now, I don't anticipate buying much in Bones VI, but darn it I know that's probably not going to be true.
  10. "Um, honey, we just got a box that says 'Industrial 3D Printer' with what looks like a giant spool of plastic thread. Do you know where the forklift should put them?"
  11. So, sounds like blue has the most votes so far :) I actually think that might work well, and I MIGHT have a way to get the variations in the blue. I saw these pics, and being a painter, I thought it looked like someone went through and painted those scales up LOL base color, washes, then highlighting on each scale
  12. So, I have this bad boy sitting on my painting desk, primed black: ] I am trying to come up with a decent paint scheme, and came across the variable bush viper. I have to say, if I can pull off this look, this will make for an amazing piece. So, I can't decide. Green, red, or blue? Green: Red: or Blue: I'm leaning towards the green, but both the red and the blue both look amazing...
  13. I still have Bones I stuff to paint Not a lot, but a few things. Still stuff left over from II as well. Majority of it is from IV, though. I missed 3 because I wasn't on KS much at that time due to my daughter being an infant, but I did get a few things from it, like Ma'al Drakar, but those I painted up quick since they were ones I was super excited about and got them when the inspiration struck. Doesn't help that I got some other not kickstarter related (like the stuff from ReaperCon this year) that adds to the list.
  14. Ha! I must have missed that update LOL I actually hit my spending limit, unfortunately. We're looking to move in about a year, so I need to be good now My wife already gives me a hard time about how many miniatures i have unpainted, and this (including 2 pirate ships) added to my painting queue and another 79 miniatures from the Marvel United kickstarter coming around the same time next year and I'm going to be given crap about it so much more.
  15. Can't believe that the PM is closing soon! What the heck happened to the rest of 2020?? I have everything I intended to get (and then some) so the extension until DEC 1st wasn't needed for me, but it's amazing that we're here already. For some reason I'm thinking they're going to need a freight box for my stuff, and I'm going to need my wife to help me carry it into the house when it gets here Another fun ride with a Bones kickstarter!
  16. Recently, I dropped my Note8 and cracked the screen. I decided I could live with it, as my budget didn't allow for phone payments again, and work told us this year that we wouldn't have raises back when COVID first hit. Even though the budget for our department was trimmed a lot, they actually told us this month that we got a small raise. Completely unexpected, but was a nice surprise. Anyhow, with part of the raise, I decided I would build in a new phone into my budget! Ended up getting the Note 20 Ultra, and my oh my is the camera FAR better than my Note8!! I mean, not even close! So, I deci
  17. So, after completing my Marvel United minis and FINALLY getting Argent painted, I am now starting to try to get caught up with some of my Bones backlog from the Bones I, II, and IV kickstarters that I still have sitting around that I want to paint, especially since I have WAY too many minis coming for Marvel United and Bones V coming in the spring! My daughter decided to commandeer some, which I'm perfectly fine with, but I kept a fair number of them as ones *I* want to paint. So, just finished off Oman Ruul, Wizard last night. Far better than I had anticipated, and the orb was fun! Started th
  18. So, I wrapped these up yesterday. They have been gloss coated ('Ard Coat from GW) then Vallejo matte varnished. My daughter finished Black Widow also. Now, before you ask, I have no idea why Black Widow has what looks like a mustache. I asked my daughter, and she can't decide if it's her mouth or if it's a mustache (we watch a lot of Bob's Burgers, so maybe that's it?). Anyhow, here's a group shot on our countertops, then one of them in their home, the box for the Marvel United game!
  19. Thanks for pointing that out! I must have gotten so excited to wrap up the plates on his chest and back that I forgot that I wanted to add a little more detail to the eyes. This is why I always welcome critiques, helps me with remembering stuff like this sometimes I did at one point try to do some washes on the underside of the wings, but they did, as you say, end up being way too dark. Not only that, but since the wings are so large and curved, the wash pooled in weird places and I had to repaint them. I think the transition between the scales and the yellow would defini
  20. I didn't do much shadowing on the underside of the wings, they're basically a little bit darker version of the top side. I can see what I can come up with, but I would need to do some experimenting on something else before I tried to change this as the wings were a pain because of how big they are. What would you think would work with the transition? A wash of the metallics over the edge of the yellow? A wash of the yellow over the edge of the metallics? As to the scales, I didn't really go through much detail in the WIP as I've done some more work since I posted it on there. I sta
  21. Weird. Might be a combination with my webhost since I'm just linking to them through the Insert Other Media. Here are the links: Side 1 Side 2 Back
  22. Not sure if you remember me asking for opinions on Argent (My WIP post) , but I finally got around to taking some of the suggestions into consideration and got him to a point where I'm happy with what he looks like. He's been sitting on my work desk since January incomplete, and I needed to free up space since I wanted to start on T'Raukzul who I picked up about a month ago using my Brinewood gift certs to get. My wife even helped with it, she gave me the suggestion to do the turquoise on his beard thing on the webbing of his tail, as she thought it would tie in really well that way. Critiques
  23. So, this one is a little different than the others I've done (hence the *). Our 5 year old painted this one up! This is the first one she's painted where it wasn't just a blob of pink, purple or light blue, and she actually really tried to paint it like I painted the others. It was really fun having her ask me questions on how I did certain things, then telling me what I needed to do on Taskmaster and telling me how much she liked how I was painting
  24. Got Taskmaster to a good point I think. I went with a more classic look from the comics instead of the more recent games/movie/etc.
