  1. You didn't come here to read my ramblings, you came here for the girls! So, without further ado: All Hallow's Eves! Now, I'm going to yammer for a bit. The girls were originally intended to be companion pieces to the Halloween Knights I did earlier this year. Unfortunately I hit a creative wall while working on them. The Black and white was originally intended to be a bit less stark. All the white washes her out. I was originally going to use more black and grey. I should have stuck to that. You can't really see it in the picture, but her "overskirt" employs Sparkling Snow and Sophie Silver for some shininess. Her washed out flesh is the Vampiric Flesh triad. The "underskirt" and top are Pure Black with some Midnight Blue for a bit of highlight. If I had it to do again, her dress would be more grey. That would help her flesh stand out a bit better, and she would look less like she belonged in Star Wars... I also need to thin my Pure White. It's a bit gloopy and that made things a little more difficult than it needed to be. Ms. Purple-Orange-Green is, IMO, the better of the two. I did lose some detail because I ended up redoing her purse and tassle multiple times (and I'm a "bit" heavy-handed with the paint, anwyay). I also got a bit frustrated with it all. The little details are great, but can take a bit to paint. Overall, I thought the details were a bit shallow. But these really are more "display" than I am accustomed to working with. The brooms were easy enough to attach (Ms. Monochrome is a bit off, though), but I had a bit of difficulty with the right arms. One arm had to be glued three or four times. One thing I learned (too late) is that there's a little crease by her right hip that is where the sickle nestles into her skirts. Using that would have helped my place her right arms, and given a bit more sturdiness. Thanks for dropping by!
  2. Pumpkin issues? Pumpkin issues?! I don't have any idea what you could possibly mean. I've loved this guy for some time. I've even got one of the metal ones buried in my mini-stash somewhere (and also [All Hallows] Eve...I'll get to her soon enough as she has a pouch/purse that is somewhat...pumpkin-shaped). I'll have to get it that one soon. Anyway, as soon as I saw this guy hit Bones V, I knew I was going to be getting a couple. So here they are! And I've just realized that I didn't paint the hilt on the white pumpkin's sword. I'll have to get that done pretty soon. The orange cape was done with a sample that Reaper sent some years ago when I returned to painting and some Pumpkin Orange and Hallowed Orange. Everything else is standard Reaper colors. I'm thinking I drybrushed the Shadowed Steel a little too heavily over the Adamantium Black. I tried to take it down with a little black wash, but I don't I got it quite right. I'm also wondering if I shouldn't re-paint the dagger as well and do something blacker/greyer. These guys were a pleasure to paint up! I'm normally pretty slow when it comes to painting. I don't even understand how some folks can plop down a figure and say that it was just a couple hours work (or less)! But, by my best estimation, these only took about six hours--which is almost unthinkable for me. ...and a gourd time was had by all. Thanks for dropping by!
  3. This is one of the Townsfolk from the Bones 4 core set, sculpted by Bobby Jackson. I tried a couple of new things on this one. I used clears (Magenta and Phthalo Blue) and Pure White to paint the dress, and the most complicated skin recipe I’ve ever used (3 Reaper and 3 S75 paints). The face turned out pretty well, so I decided to try painting makeup for the first time - she’s a courtesan after all. Also freehanded shoulder blades. This is another mini that was meant to be a quick RCL paint job, but sort of grew legs. In retrospect I wish I’d gotten the metal version - I couldn’t do much with that seal flipper of a hand 🤣 palette with skin colors (front 2 rows):
  4. This figure is also available in metal sku 03761. I tried to capture the no-nonsense with basically 5 colours.
  5. I suspect that some may be amazed to realize that I really DO paint Reaper Miniatures. I'm very fond of Bobby Jackson's work and have chosen this one to be my first of the Bones II to paint. I did enjoy how easy it was to remove some of the base with a pair of nippers. Here are three photos of the Miniature.
