  1. and now for his raiding party
  2. Previews for Reaper's June releases just went up in the "Previews" section, and they're from the Bones 5 Kickstarter. Granted, there's still April and May unaccounted for, but there are a number of large models from the Bones 4 Kickstarter that haven't been released at retail yet. We already know they're suggesting that the Stygian Barge may never be released, but I'm hoping most of the rest will be. By my count, all of these haven't hit the game stores yet: Narglauth Dragon Turtle Agramon, Duke of Hell Blacksting Wyvern All of the Fantasy Scenics Thunde
  3. I don't do WIP's very often and I'm well into a couple of these guys. But I added a couple more as I started to base the first few so I figured I might as well. Maybe it will help me keep my focus. We have the 3 bones ogres from a kickstarter or two ago, the bones black preview ogre, metal Kagunk 2, and the bones 4 ettin. I may decide to add metal ogre chieftain (aka kagunk 1) as well as he is half finied on the shelf anyway, and metal Norr'Okk, if I can ever figure out what to do about his head. Also considering ordering the newer ogre chieftain, but we will see.
  4. This is my most ambitious attempt to date. A mini-campaign I’m running some people through calls for many kobolds of varying colors and classes. I had 12 Kobolds from Bones I, the 4 pack in metal that those were based off of (03064), the metal Leader and Sorcerer (03024), the 12 awesome new kobolds from Bones 4, and a 7 pack (I may have gotten a freebie, I thought I bought a six pack) of kobolds from the Ral Partha TSR Official D&D 2nd Edition line, stamped 1989. That’s a whopping 37 figures. I want to paint tribes from all 5 chromatic factions, and want to have as few duplicate poses
  5. Some quick paints for the table. The pirate is a good demonstration of why I don't try sculpting - in addition he had a lot of casting problems in his legs and feet, so.... he will do but I kind of cringe. The shroud was a very quick paint - I cut the hands off, because it seemed more creepy that way
  6. More from May - the cultist pair 77518. I also added in my other recently painted pair (77351) with cirlce and I think they make a nice grouping.
  7. My first time painting a chibi figure. Probably not the last. Painting this made me feel happy.
  8. My 3 year old had been exploring my basement paintbstation and fallen in love with the "elephant. " Yesterday I glued and primed it for painting. About 60% got covered in rainbow splotches of craft paint before child abandoned the project to play with recently varnished terrain. I smoothed out all the blobs of paint to vaguely cover everything in a greenish/pinkish/brownish grey. We may paint more, or else I'll paint some eyes and seal it.
  9. All four Reaper Bones Stone Giants, but with some modifications: Replaced the club wielded by the guard with the one from the smaller, older giant Gave that giant a home-made hammer and a rock to throw. For colours I chose a base of old Citadel Adeptus Battlegrey, brightened with white for highlights. The cloth colours are all greyish hues rather than natural stone colours because I thought that might be too dull. Very happy with the purple cloth, which is done with the Reaper Dark Elf Skin triad. I tried to do decorations in bluish green jade (though if you think it's mo
  10. A pair of Bones bears (or the bear Bones, if you like) I tried to paint these from pictures of real-life grizzly bears. Every time I paint an animal it ends up with a chaotic riot of washes and highlights in different colours until it looks enough like the source images to satisfy me. I doubt if I could paint another one and get the same colour! The coat of the Dire bear is much coarser, which really shows in the photo (like the fine moulding line on the Cave Bear's face) but is less bothersome in more natural light. I painted these as companions to my Stone Giant tribe
  11. Hello Reaper friends! You might remember I did a whole tribe of Hill Giants on a display board, with hex bases? This is my follow up to that, this time: Stone Giants. Errrm, it all got a bit out of hand, and I'd LOVE some input from you all, please This is where I'm at after a week and I'm a bit stuck tbh. I think I need to decide more about what the "finish" will look like before I go a lot further. Once I cover that foam with more than paint it's going to be harder to make changes. I'm thinking of sort of "cladding" it in pieces of sla
  12. Here she is - she is an NPC in my campaign... friend or foe? Tried a darker skin but not sure I quite got it. Well, I was pleased even if her eyebrows are a bit odd.
  13. Alright. So I want to share some old skeletons with you to both show off some of my older paintjobs, and to reflect on my growth over the past two and a half years. An what better way to show off my growth in Bones, than with bones? More Below Spoiler: I am not a fan of repainting old models or painting another copy of something I've already painted. I have so many minis in my collection that I'd rather keep moving forward. That said, I love painting similar things. It's a great opportunity to reflect on your past projects and to compare where
  14. My kid loves stealing my dice. So I'm painting some High Rollers as a bday gift later this summer. Kid is not old enough to paint with a brush yet. Day 1 was saturday - priming and base coats on the bases and D'Tenian. Maybe my first painting this year?
  15. For the RCL Zodiac Challenge - the Taurus not one of the more creative choices like Libra or Aquarius. It is my Adopted Star sign because if Horoscopes are at all useful it is when they make guesses at problems or opportunities based on the personality connected to the sign. by personality I fit like 3 of 4 tendencies, and 0 of 4 of my birth sign. knocked this guy out in a few hours this morning.
  16. I put together a few documents related to using Bones. I've submitted these to the Craft section of the website, but as it may be a little while before Reaper has the time available to add them, Bryan suggested that I post them here.

  17. Here's a simple one for you. Painted the Great Worm as a Purple Worm to the surprise of no one. More Photos Below the Spoiler:
  18. The last of my player characters I painted up for Frostrun is Ophelia Pokitz, a young halfling with sticky fingers. They're represented here by Bailey Silverbell. Ophelia was a fun mini as well. Was my first time painting a humanoid with large facial features, which made it a lot easier to bring definition to the nose, lips, and eyes. I think I even hit the cheeks with a bit of blush. I also had fun trying to make their cloak look like it was made of fur. The result is acceptable, but might also just look snow covered. You can be the judge. I also enjoyed painting a rogue th
  19. Hello Forum friends, I'm being quite productive lately Gonna show you the most recent mini I painted: Small world Sophie. Ok, I have to say I'm in love with this chibi minis, I'm gonna buy lot more cause I find them so funny to paint! About the paint job, well, anytime I manage to paint Sophie, my color choice for her wings is always Violet (or purple if you prefer) and so why do not make my life easy and go for a complementary palette? So, purple and yellow. Easy peasy... Anyway, this is the result, I'm quite happy of her, I hope you'll like her too. As always every C&C is more t

  21. Worked on some critters. The leeches were painted Walnut Brown and highlighted in medium grey. Then I went over them with Turbo Dork - 3D Glasses. Then wash of Nuln Oil Glossy. Ended up with the slimy/glossy look I was trying for. Dire Crab, I was inspired by the color scheme that many have posted here, which i think they were modeling a Blue Crab which seems to be more green with many interesting colors in it. I painted the whole thing Ivory, and then glazed inks and washes up and tried to be careful on where I laid the wash/ink down. Some wer
  22. Here there are my Bones Black Deep Gnomes! I arranged them in a small display base, with crafted gems and mushrooms.
  23. My partner for the Secret Sophie exchange this year was NecroMancer and they requested demons or some other stuff, so I painted the Queen of Hell. About the same time I had ordered a 3D printer and I had found a base that kind of matched an idea I had in my head. The printer was going to ship on time, then it wasn't, then it was, and finally came in just in time to print my display base. It is from the celestial pack by Archvillain Games. It's 100mm plus some overhang. For a bit of additional flair I added some blood imps to the base. One thing about pre-made display bases thoug
  24. I finally finished my Dragons Don't Share! I have another that I purchased to paint sometime next year! For this one, I was inspired by the ruins of Pompeii. I went with the yellowish stones and added frescoes and statues. There is also a bird in a nest, a lizard, butterfly, and bunny in amongst the ruins. I used a lizard photo to design my dragon instead of going with a "usual" color. I thought he fit in with the ruins. You can see the work in progress here: C&C welcome! Thanks for looking!
