  1. Howdy, Stoned... Kev!
  2. Howdy, My first use of the new light box... Kev!
  3. Deathsleet, DDS2, Narthrax, Nehyrmaul, Fire Dragon, Shadow Dragon, Ebonwrath, Jabberwock, Pathfinder Read, Young Fire Dragon, Kaladrax (and all the others not currently showing up with a search for "Bones Dragon", such as Velocithrax, Cinder, and Blightfang from the Second KS campaign). What D&D/Pathfinder Size category are these? I'm having a hard time guessing, and wanted other folks' opinions. Also, if this has already been discussed, please send me a link, and we can lock this thread.
  4. Started painting this THING a week ago. Wasn’t sure if I was going to like it, then about half way through the dang thing started to become on of my favorite miniatures. Constructive criticism is welcome. Easier to paint than I thought it would be. Enjoy.
  5. I worked super hard on this guy. I think he's some of my best work. I hope everyone likes him.
  6. So yeah, been a long time. I had actually quit painting for some time. 5 or 6 years at least. I had a few false starts getting back in to to the hobby in that time. But yeah, pretty much the last several years, my brushes were dry, and my paints were unopened. Flash-forward to this past August, and I kinda got the itch again. The minis in the Nolzur's Marvelous Minis line for D&D really caught my notice and got me pretty excited. So, I bought a few, got my brushes wet again and, well, the picspam speaks for itself, I think. I have some success, some not quite as successful, but, lots of finished output since August. Also pictured: a WIP of a Blightfang mini I received as a gift a few days ago. It's nice to be painting again.
  7. So my lovely bride got me an airbrush setup for Christmas, and I played with it for the first time last night. Over all, it worked out ok, but left me with some questions that the Airbrushing: The Compendium thread didn't answer: 1. I "prime" my Bones with Brown Liner. When I tested on some Orcs last night, this seemed to work pretty decently. But given the hydrophobic nature of Bones, I didn't thin the Brown liner at all at first, then started adding a bit of water. It definitely seemed to help with the spraying as I thinned it, but I was worried about it beading up. So how do you deal with that on the first layer on Bones minis? 2. how do you guys tack down your smaller Bones minis to prime with an airbrush? I found that that the pressure (around 18-20psi) was blowing the orcs all over the place, which led me to having to prime them individually, which defeated the purpose of being able to do a bunch at once. 3. I got a sample bottle of the Stylenz primer at ReaperCon - I tried it on some CAVs, but it just beaded up. Was that an issue with me and the airbrush, or just an issue with Stylenz and Bones?
  8. Hello all, this is my version of Rogaku; this is the first time I've painted a Bones mini and I found the details a bit less sharp than the metal minis I've painted till now, but maybe it's cause of the Vallejo brush primer I used on it and, probably, the zenital dry-brushing hi-light. Anyway, my choice for the skin color had been red, as the iconic Oni is, usually, red skinned, and blue for the skirt (is it a skirt? ) cause it would make contrast with the orange of the pumpkin flask; curiosity: the kanji on the flask just means "Oni" (really creative ). Green belt and jade bracer to contrast the red of the skin; and classic blue/black hair. As always the wood is somenthing I cannot achieve as I wish, it looks really flat I hope you all will like it, any comment and advice is welcome! Thank you for reading
  9. Howdy, I hope I am doing this right... For the LadyStorm Contest, Kev!
  10. It got late, so change of plans and here he is: Painted in 1 evening, using only 4 colors. I'm pretty happy with how he turned out. Colors: Splintered bone, Turkey Brown, Nightsky Blue and Blackened Brown. I was just going to use the first 3, but decided I needed something darker to finish it up.
  11. This was my entry for the Reaper Fan Facebook Page Paint Your Giants Contest. This is the biggest thing I ever painted not on a canvas. The last time I entered one of these, I felt like it would have done better if the base told more of a story, so that is what I tried to achieve with this one. I wanted it to portray REVENGE! The Jarl had his left eye gouged out by a young upstart white dragon. He healed, regrouped, and hunted down the dragon to enact his revenge. I hope you like it. The final results have now been posted. He placed 4th behind some mind-blowing work. I wanted some orange on the model to play against the blue skin, for color theory. Originally, it was going to be glowing runes on the rock and skulls, but I abandoned that for the sake of time/completion. I settled with orange tones in the leather. I wasn't really sure how to get the TMM of the crown to look like a gouge, or how to make his blue skin look like a scar. I'm not entirely sold on the result, but I'm sure I'll try again some day on a different model. The Monster Manual suggests blue skin with white/gray/dirty blonde hair is the usual coloration. I tried to go to full white for the highlights of the face to make it the focal point. I wanted him to look like he was wearing a polar bear pelt, and that all the fur trim was also polar bear. I tried to make it look a little muddy on the bottom, and on his shoes. This was how I wanted to weather the inside of the bear skin, to make it look like it had that dried cracked appearance. Not sure how well it shows up in the picture. These were some WIP shots. The black and white was to figure out how to highlight the sword. I wanted the sword and stone items to look like shiny flint. I hit the sword and most of the other stone items with high gloss varnish to help sell the effect. The front and back of the sword. Finally, some more details of the base and the white dragon victim. I wanted to base the dragon as a purple in the recesses, similar to the effect going on on the cover of Hoard of the Dragon Queen module. This was the BONES Temple Dragon I sacrificed. He is smaller, but his tongue sticks out perfectly to sell the dead dragon effect. And he's not as expensive to replace as Deathsleet! I pained his eyes half-rolled into his head to complete the idea. I tried to freehand some anatomy on there: vertebral body, muscle groups, esophagus, carotid arteries/jugular veins. I also tried to be accurate with the blood spray coming from both arteries, and didn't want to go too crazy with the gore. Finally, I wanted it to look like his hot blood had melted some of the snow. Overall, this was a wild ride. The early part of the contest saw him at #2. Then he gave up some ground and sat at #3 for a long time. Then another Frost Giant (Queen) made a great surge at the end to unseat me out of #3 into 4th place. To be honest, there were so many awesome paint jobs, I'm just humbled and honored to be in the top 20. Thanks for looking. C&C Welcome.
  12. Silver dragon done up in red...
  13. Finished this guy up for Ladystorm's winter contest. Fun one to work on, pretty quick paintjob between commissions.

    Bugbear twins

    Here are a pair of bugbears I painted up for a game a while ago - kept meaning to retake the pics, but that just doesn't seem to happen.
  15. Last up in my recently finished miniatures are a set of Animal-Folk from Reaper, all part of Bones 3. I believe some are Lyncanthropes and some from the Savage Avatars sets. The pack: The Gorilla King, with hat: And without: The Were-Gorilla: Werebear don't care: A rather standard Werewolf: Wereboar gotta go fast: And a Water-Buffalo-Man. I realized I painted him after a Yak, then remembered that's not the animal he was meant to be.
  16. This was my entry for the Quarterly Bones Reaper Fan Facebook Painting Contest. The Angel of Shadow. She was good enough for an Honorable Mention (Thanks Reaper Matt)! For the prior contest, I liked how people were getting interesting light effects by using a black backdrop, so I tried that. Another reason I wanted to do it was to see if I could put her on a standard gaming base, supported by a rod painted black to fade into the backdrop, to give her a good illusion of flying. Also, this was my first attempt at Monochrome. My final idea was to do a weapon swap to a wand (A cross-looking weapon from the BONES 3 Weapon Sprue), and sculpted my take on Acid Arrow, painting it green as the only color on the model, like those stunning black and white photos with colored flowers, etc. I would say I'm a much better painter than sculptor Her paints used As time wore down, I had to abandon thoughts of OSL, so I made it seem like her lantern had died out and the spell didn't cast much light. Here are some other photos against an out-of-focus rug to show some tighter details. I tried to put some texture into the fabric of her dress, which was another first. C&C Welcome!
  17. Howdy, Inspiration came from the Reaper Quarterly Contest... Kev!
  18. Here are a couple of quick paints I did to support my fondness for dungeon dressing - looks better than white bones on the table!
  19. Can't seem to find these guys. It says they're from Bones 3.
  20. Howdy, So far, so good... Kev!
  21. Another figure for Dragon Age.
  22. I was using this to try a different skin color which I like and I believe I was going to do a bit more detailed TMM but got side tracked. After several months of no work on him, I decided to get him "done" to tabletop level. Here are some shaky iPad photos. C&C welcome.
  23. Howdy, Pesky varmints... Kev!
  24. Good day everyone, this was my entry in Reaper's Facebook Paint Your Giant contest. 77178, Fire Giant Warrior, Dark Heaven Bones model sculpted by Jason Wiebe. It is mounted on a 74027, Ruins Vignette Base, a resin base sculpted by Patrick Keith. This model is huge, 7cm high and 13cm wide with the sword. I did some minor conversion on it. A heavy thundering sound come crushing down the ruined hall. You see orange and red lights dancing between the pillar supporting the stone roof. In the glimpse of a moment, all hell break loose as a dark skin colossus burst from the rubbles wielding a towering incandescent blade. He lands next to you smashing the large tiles of the floor. You are paralyzed in fear as he turns gazing in your direction with fire in his eyes. Desperate, you wonder if you've gone too far exploring this ancient Undermountain realm.
  25. For my upcoming Dragon Age campaign. I thought they looked like they need to pee, but a buddy elsewhere described them as Bone Strippers, and now I can't unsee that.
