  1. So I started this a couple of days before Christmas and I was racking my head over how to get a good stoney look for my new friend and i remembered a trick i accidentally learned from the l2pk. I primed the mini with reaper brush on primer and the washed the crap out of it with black ink the combination of the ink and primer gives a great stone effect imo, my only thought is that the body held on to the ink more than i wanted and so it's a hair darker than the wings. http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8327302852/'> I will see about getting some decent pictures up tonight.
  2. Ok finally finished this miniatrue, he's painted quickly aiming for tabletop standard only. In the end I did paint a bit more detail than I had originally intended but he hasn't had the level of attention most of the character models I've done recently have recieved. He was rebased onto a Back-2-Base-ix 25mm Celtic Ruins base as part of an early experiement in finding out how hard that would be (easy it turns out).
  3. this is a highlight test mini, there's a Lot of shadow on the underside of the mini and I went over the raised areas with 2/1/1 matt medium stuff / base color / lighter shade. I didn't shade most of the lower left leg as it's sticking out from under his body. http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8270835110/'> http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8270835576/'> http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8269773221/'> http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8270839324/'> http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8269774683/'>
  4. so March for me is going to contain: 1.should have my tax returns. 2. Bones should be starting to ship out(depends on the customs). 3. the archangel should be out by PP. 4. It is my 32nd birthday. i have a feeling i will be swimming in miniatures.
  5. This is actually the first bones mini I've painted. I got him quite some time ago, converted his sword using the chained weapons pack, and then let him sit around for a loooong time. He stood on my desk near my monitor during the kickstarter so I could hold him up to the screen and zoom in or out until the image of him on my screen matched his size in my hand, just so I could squee over an ACTUAL SIZE Nethyrmaul. Good times. Now, he's been painted and will fall in battle many times to my Eberron PCs as a mook of the Emerald Claw. Quite the shift in fate for him, I suppose, but an honorable series of occupations nonetheless. This was a fast paint for me, only about 2.5 hours. The blending on his back is kinda jagged, but I'm happy with his metals and shield. Not my best freehand work, but it does cover up those silly Crusaders symbols. I mentioned in another thread, I'm impressed with the non-primer of this material. Really fun little mini! Thanks for looking! C&C always welcome.
  6. So recently my girl ordered some miniatures for campaigns that are being run and I had the opportunity to grab two purple worms. Bones that is. Finally I got my hands on some of those :D I was quite bouncy. I tried out a whole bunch of different paints. Some stuck, some didnt (washes obviously didnt work without some form of base coat/dulle coat), and that took me quite a bit. After all of that I decided to do some paintjobs I was actually happy with. With all the amazingly inspiring paintjobs on the forum (I particularly like the lavaworm, the swamp worm and the (what I have come to call) 'worm in a wheatfield' worm). One of my worms will be a 'dungeon worm' later on, but for now I add to the list the 'frost worm', also known as a good excuse for me to get snow flock. :) (The head is ever so slightly out of focus, probably due to the size of the miniature. If there is a good fix for that, please. My camera is not that top of the line though.)
  7. Hi - Will the large bones minis, such as the dragons, etc, come as multipart models - or in one piece? Also, can you give us an idea when the updated Vampire level picture will be posted? I've loved the updated Bones pictures -- and look forward to seeing more! Thanks, Liverpuncer
  8. Wyrmgear is the large new steampunk dragon to be released as part of the Bones Kickstarter of 2012. http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/previews/latest/77177 It's a pretty fun figure, a Victorian-style mechanical dragon. Elsewhere people have been discussing how they plan to paint and decorate it when it arrives as part of the Bones Kickstarter next spring. While musing over decorating approaches I recalled a source I found of masses of teeny-tiny watch gears and parts. http://www.amazon.com/Lisa-Pavelka-2-Ounce-Crafting-Silver/dp/B0053GA0DI They are dismantled watch innards sold by the half-ounce for jewelry crafts. These are random assortments, but they usually include a lot of gears and some oddly shaped bits (not watch hands, generally). The scale of the parts is very small. In fact, some of the Amazon reviewers complained (rightly, I think) that the parts were too small for most jewelry applications. Which makes them the perfect scale for minis (Well, large minis like the dragon. They are probably still too big on average for human-sized minis.). I got some and I think the smallest gear in the assortment I got was 1mm across. I think 1/2" is about the biggest size gear I saw, although there occasionally may be parts up to 3/4". The watch parts are sometimes a bit tarnished or with some patina. I trust this will not put people off what really is a very useful gear and bits assortment for steampunk minis conversion.
  9. testing some new paint flat black paint i picked up today for painting a mini for one of my players and working on drybrushing also. I suppose the base could be considered to have some nudity >,> so http://flic.kr/p/dwPQ3g http://flic.kr/p/dwVjzS I realize the tombstone and base Don't exactly match up but I got bored today and wanted to do a mini start to finish.
  10. As part of this weekend's speed painting endeavours I finished the 2nd and 3rd of my Bones Bugbears. The first one got a Back-2-Base-ix Celtic Ruins base and as I didn't want to rebase these two I gave one red trims and the other blue. Painting approach; No Undercoat Basecoat in appropriate colours, Saphire Blue, Blood Red, Oiled Leather, Russet Brown, Shadowed Steel, Mahogany Brown, Tanned Shadow. Wash the whole mini with Black Wash. Retouch the Shadowed Steel to get some sharper highlights. Apply highlights of Tanned Shadow, Tanned Flesh, Tanned Highlight to skin. Paint nails and teeth as you do the skin starting with Tanned Flesh, Tanned Highlight & final highlight with Linen White. Paint eyes with Linen White, Pure Black and outline with Mahogany Brown. Drybrush Hair areas Intense Brown. Paint base green and edge pure black, flock. Seal (to be done this evening now that I have enough models to make it worth doing). This takes about 2 hours (plus drying time) to do, adding another model or two to that process wouldn't slow it down noticeably. The slowest process is the base coat and skin just due to the paint changes and the care it takes to get paint in only particular spots.
  11. Btw I did remember to dust the kilt off before sealing this litter bugger :p
  12. This might have been answered earlier (I looked but couldnt find anything) i recently got some new bones and i threw afew of them in boiling water while soft i put them in the stance I wanted, then I put them in a bowl of ice water and put it in the freezer for a few hours. I thought it had worked perfectly but after left out for a day they just go back to normal. My question is how do you change the stance of bones for good?
  13. Just got my Sophie, comes in six parts: front wheel, front of bike, back of bike, Sophie's main body, and the two wings - should be easy to green stuff in the wing slots if you just want a "biker girl." Model looks great, but there is a fairly large gap where the wheel part meets the front of the bike part that will need some green stuff to fill in so that the tire segments line up correctly. The model can stand without a base even if you use just the bike and Sophie body without wings (but the wings help). You might need to gently push the handle bars around a bit to get Sophie into the proper seating position. Overall, a great model, can't wait to start painting it! Here is a size comparison:
  14. This is the mini I chose to do when they first announced the Halloween contest. I picked him because I wanted to mess around with the bones some, I've never done a ghost/ethereal creature, and they show up periodically in my home campaign, maybe even frequently. The first shot is the stock photo. The second and third shot is where I gave him a light priming to see the mold lines better and based him. All mold lines should be gone at this point. I will say the mold lines on these guys are a pain IMO compared to the metal minis. I also don't how light they are. There's something satisfying about a heavy mini in your hand. Well, I've purchased a lot of them, so I'll be very in tune with what I like and don't like about them. :P I would like lots of questions, lots of comments, and lots of what I could do to make it better. Thank you!
  15. So I picked up a few new jars of paint Tuesday and took a crack at my gnoll and here's what i have so far, Im having a little trouble with lighting today so it's kind of hard to see the tarnished effect on the right arm. I'm not entirely happy with the leather straps but with a limited paint selection you have to make due. DSCN0068 by Color out of space, on Flickr DSCN0064 by Color out of space, on Flickr DSCN0059 by Color out of space, on Flickr that's the best shot i could get that shows the green wash on the right arm.

  16. Here is a third Bones I painted with cheap craft paint. Like others, I find the mould lines on this guy a bit of a challenge, and in the end I didn't manage to get all of them off perfectly, particularly spots on his arms. But I enjoyed painting him. I will be back to painting metal after this, until March/April, when the deluge of plastic will begin (and I'll get to learn how to use better paint!) Cheers.
  17. Here's my entry for the scenic base part of the Halloween contest. I opted to create a scene in which a werewolf is stalking amongst the soft muddy ground of a field of crops. He leaves only the faintest of impressions in the mud with his long claws. I wanted to give the impression that he's slowly bending down the grass (or crops) and is captured in the instant just as his body is rushing into motion, so I dangled the saliva at a slight angle to help with that impression. I used green stuff on the base to try and create a muddy ground in appearance, and added the claw marks. I considered trying to get more extravagant with the impressions, but here in Georgia the red clay is pretty tough earth so I left it at his claw impressions. I did the faintest streak of white across both his eyes which I painted black b/c I really wanted this guy to have the eyes of a killer. With all the werewolf/vampire (wuss) love stories in our culture today, my goal was to have a werewolf that looked like he meant business. I also opted to paint his distal extremities a darker color than his fur b/c I saw a dog with that feature recently and really thought it looked cool. I learned a lot painting this fellow, and think that my skin/fur tone and blending is finally getting to a place with which I'm happy.

    Lava Worm!!

    Lava Worm!! Having been inspired by all of the BONES Worms lately I devised a number of variations and decided on two of them (outside of the traditional Purple Worm). The first you see below. I would very much like to give thanks to MonkeySloth for sharing with us the DISTRESS Crackle Paint. You can check out his tutorial on Ice Bases here.
  19. I was inspired by the thoughtful comments on my last post to give another Bones a go -- again, painting with Americana Acrylic craft paints. I didn't prime this figure but found that the purple, yellow and red base coats, which I thin with flow aid, went on very translucent and the white plastic shines through, so it needs another thin base coat before shading and highlighting. But then I tend to do that with miniatures primed white anyway, as I am usually not in a hurry. I am thinking of putting on a base coat of grey acrylic on a bones to see if that helps. The part of this miniature I like least is the sword -- it's crooked, for one thing, and seems disproportionately big for the figure. I worked at getting the mould lines off and it was worth the trouble. Just takes some getting used to the soft plastic. I was definitely influenced by other recent posts of this figure (thanks!) but tried not to be too derivative in the end. Cheers. EDIT: added two cropped photos, as per request.

    77010 kobold

    This is a Bones kobold from the speed paint at Reapercon this year. He's maybe half an inch tall and was completed in 45 minutes.
  21. Aside from plotting which figures will be getting the first splashes of paint, I've spent a good bit time thinking about which will go under the blade. The main fantasy archetype that seems to be missing to me is a monk PC. The minis that I think might have some potential for a monk conversion are: the crouching ranger from heroes, the gnome wizard from the new 30, the male pirate hoisting the treasure chest, the hellborn wizard, and Juliette. The issue is that most of the humanoid adventurer types are heavily armored. I could also see robbing the wood elf sergeant of the top of his bow and turning him into a druid type, and I am planning to cobble a baby cockatrice out of familiar bits. Any ideas for my monk quest? What conversions have you begun to plot?
  22. I looked to see if this question had been asked and answered but I couldn't find anything around or in the FAQ on the KS so, apologies if it has been asked an I'm just blind... Will the miniatures from the Kicstarter come with the alternate pieces that the original metal mini's have? For example the Rosie, Chronotechnician can either be wielding a rifle or a giant wrench. Will the Bones that come from the Kickstarter have these alternate bits?
  23. So I was really excited after the Kickstarter ended .. so I picked up the only Bones mini I could find! Please be kind I haven't even been painting for a year yet .. so i am still learning. Please excuse his unfinished base too. :) I have to say I am even MORE excited to get all the Kickstarter figures now. Okie! I worked on finishing the base today and snapped a couple of different images. :) Front Back I think my biggest challenge is still highlighting. I welcome notes :)
  24. I painted this guy up for my DnD campeign. i have a couple of things i need to touch up(toenails are missing paint, back bottom boil flowed over when doing the wet blending, and for some reason i Dont think you can tell from the pictures, his loin cloth is super shiny. needless to say this brought about many a cod piece/loin cloth joke at my gaming table. But since they were all new players it took them a while to figure out how to get the troll to stop coming back from being mostly dead. C&C welcome!
