Mostly Harmless

Mostly Harmless (2/8)



  1. So I finally got my Bones 4 pledge today and Baba Yaga's hut won't stand. The legs are so short and deformed and it's super top heavy. Suggestions on fixing it? Anyone else have this problem? Should I use the hair dryer or boiling method?
  2. Thanks guys. I can't wait to post the Gorgoloth? I can't remember how to spell the squid thing. Anyway I'm waiting for the custom base I made to dry out then I have to do some more flocking and painting on it.
  3. This is actually my second paint job for the Bones 2 line but the other two are still WIP until I can finish bases and all that. So I give you my first fully completed Bones II, the Burrowing Horror! I used quite a few paints in this and I don't remember them all but basically: Tanned Leather (Base) Black wash Dirty Bone Yellowed Bone Bathalian Chitin Oiled Leather (Brown highlights around the bone plates) Sun yellow (additional highlights and eyes) Blazing Orange (eyes) Maggot white (teeth) A different leather on the belly, I can't remember the name!) Devlan Mud wash for the final wash I may still attach some sand or grass between the bone plates but I'm not sure yet.
  4. I don't know why, but that's what I see when I think of Cthulhu! A green slimy alien creature. lol
  5. The hightlights can be seen better in person, but they're there. I think I may enhance them a little though. A little dry bushing wouldn't hurt. :)
  6. So now comes the inevitable question. Anyone want to buy a painted Cthulhu? lol (Kidding by the way!)
  7. By the way all, I added some pictures of the later changes. I dry brushed his feet and the area around his feet with Alien Goo to make them look a little messy. I even made a footprint-like area on the stone. I think it adds a little flavor to the scene.
  8. Looks like $39.99 from the preview gallery. http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/previews/latest/77194 Nice job and I may never paint mine now because I have no clue where I would even begin. I guess the first step is to actually finish L2PK1 and then go on to the next until I feel I am ready for the challenge. It really isn't that hard. Just start with a color. In my case, Peacock Green. Build from there. I Got the large areas painted with one coat before I started even looking at the others. I.E. Wings, Armored Spots, Spines, Etc. Take it slow. I powered through mine because I somehow found inspiration and time to get it done. I've taken longer to finish models smaller than my pinkie finger. It's honestly easier when you can see the details so clearly. I almost didn't need my magnifying headgear. lol
  9. No sir, you can never have enough Cthulhu. lol Someone offered me cash for Cthulhu already. Anyone know how much the model will cost or if it's going to be sold in the store?
  10. Thank you, I worked hard to get him top notch quality! :) As far as the tentacles I will admit they were a pain the first try but I am not afraid to get a little paint on my hands. I used a technique I have had to do before on semi-flexible surfaces that involves running my finger along it in front of the brush to stabilize it and at some points just holding it. Once you get to the base of the tentacles it's not so hard and until then just put a finger on it to keep it semi-steady. When I was dry brushing them it actually worked in my favor to make them look messy.
  11. Fine brush, did the same for the wings. I brushed the metacarpals and veins individually by hand. Along with all the runes and fine details.
