  1. Been working on this off and on since RCon. I originally intended to enter it for my Ed Sculpt, but ran out of time. Instead I focused on trying to get a decent fast paint job. I'd guess I'm at about 6 hours total over 4 or 5 days. Sorry I didn't take many process pics. The next step is basing. I have a few ideas, but I'm trying to let them gel a bit.
  2. Here's my final batch of new painted figures. Bones Giant Centipedes. A staple encounter for low-level adventurers. Still inspired by Reign of Winter. Sadly, Mr. Red got into the snow of Mr. Blue's base! Enjoy. C&C Welcome.
  3. Simple conversion painted to tabletop quality for the big bad for my D&D group.
  4. My first time posting to this forum, please let me know if I misstep :p Reaper Bones Black: 44002 Rock Troll I added a more rocky base using rock and some plastic crystals carved from leftover plastic sprue. Also added some more crystals to his elbows and side. The elbows were just because I thought it would make it look more menacing but the one on his side was because of a huge hole leftover from the moulding process. To take care of assembly lines I used some of the rock I cracked apart for the base. I still have the belt and pouch to do, along with the base and some smoothing if blends in his muscles. Feedback and CC most welcome!!!
  5. Boom! Partial stoney nudity: Females Partial stoney nudity: Males
  6. So the reason I had spare blackstar rifles was that I decided a proper pirate captain needs a sword. So I built this guy with the bones 3 weapon pack, and the spare head off of the bones 4 bulldog armor. His sword has much fire, and his reactor a distressing blue glow.
  7. Hi all. I just finished the Colossal Skeleton that I've had for a couple years now. For the longest time I was holding off because I was afraid of doing a mini so much bigger than all the rest. I've gotten some nice reviews on some of my recent stuff so I decided to take the plunge and try my hand at my first large figure. I have several sets much larger than even this guy so I had to start somewhere. The closeup pics show how much work I did on the fur for the back lioncloth as well as the wood grain lines I painted on the planks on his right thigh. I based him on a wooden plaque my mom was getting rid of that I painted black. I was doing more work on the base, it was supposed to have some more colours in it but I messed up on the drybrushing so I called it finished and hid the mistake with some static grass . So far one friend has told me the blue rags pull him out of the mini because they look too new and blue while the rest of him is old and rotted. Maybe he could do with some more staining on the blue but it doesn't bother me much. Anyways, enough preamble, I hope you all like him enough as my first large mini! Edit: forgot to apologize for the make-believe "lightbox" photos, but that's how it goes.
  8. Finishing up some minis, including a small coterie of spider centaurs and their demon mistress. These are two of Gene Van Horne's "Arachnid Archers". I had a lot of fun painting them. Front views are linked offsite because of nudity.

In person she looks translucent like a pomegranate seed: Companion pieces: 77180: Shaerileth, Spider Demoness and 77181: Arachnid Warrior WIP thread here.

    Did a little painting today to calm my nerves before the con. Experimented with several brands of metallic paint. Photos are not great, but you get the idea.
  10. Hey, don't normally do WIPs, so forgive me if I skip steps, but I started working on my gazebo from Bones 4. Built up a cork base and mounted on some basswood (slightly harder than balsa): I'm going to be using this as blocking terrain in Kings of War, so I don't really need any interior functionality. I got a Rivendell vibe from this, so I'm going to load it up with some greenery. First step is covering the rock parts with a gritty paste: Just left the steps exposed and some edges.
  11. Finished this guy up.
  12. Here are a trio I painted up quickly for the same encounter as the smaller ones - result is a bit cartoony but serviceable. I think I got the eyes on the purple one to look nice and insecty though - used red with a pale green metallic thinned down over it.
  13. This is what I'm working on at the moment. I had to start over a few time due to issues with the sculpt. Before I even got started I had to, well I didn't have to but I chose to, fix some of the more obvious problems with the sculpt using Apoxie Sculpt. Some of the mail had no detail at all, so I add it in, and there were some just terrible mold lines. I finally just decided to say forget it and move on with the painting. I was going for more of a grey skin, but ended up with a greener skin. I'm ok with where it's going, but on the next Orc I'll adjust the skin tone. Sorry the pics are a bit wonky.
  14. Hello forum family, as I already wrote in the WIP thread I just wanted an Aasimar but don't wanna buy one, so I decided to make my own converting the bones version of the Ghoul Queen and the Angel of Shadows. And this is the outcome: Hi-res picture I really like how she came out, I really hope you'll like her too! Every c&c and advice is super welcome :) Thank you for watching!
  15. Next up to bat, a selection of the denizens of Dreadmere, from Reaper Miniatures: Bones 4
  16. Hi all. I may have finished this guy in record time. I am trying this new thing where when I want to stop and get up from my desk... I don't . This is a bugbear that I just primed with a couple others even though I didn't really have any strong feelings about him. But as I started working on him I started to get more excited, which is something that's been happening to me more now. I just start a mini to get more stuff painted and end up liking the job. I have started to put more effort into highlighting because I got a nudge here on the forums and I am so glad I did. I really like the work I did on his armour, bringing the scales up to a brighter orange and ticking the edges with silver to make it look like the orange was paint wearing off. In person he really glitters with that silver, something that didn't quite come across in the picture. I like the highlighting I did with his skin and loincloth and also the silver rivets on the arm and shin guards. I hope you all like him too!
  17. Ok, forum family, as the title says, I really wanna paint an Aasimar, but atm I can't buy any more mini (wanna paint what I have before!) and so I decided to make my own one. So I took this: and this: to make this one: I know the picture sux, but I'm pretty happy of how she came out... now time to choose the palette.. mumble mumble Any advice, is welcome, help poor Cicciopiu to make it real! :D :D
  18. I would like to try airbrushing different sets of skin tones onto multiple copies (5+) of the same female figure as practice and as a reference for other models. Anyone recommend a Bones fig that is large enough to have quite a bit of exposed skin, but cheap enough that lots of copies wouldn't set me back too much. Yaphima (sure I spelled it wrong) the Frost giant comes to mind first, but looking for other options
  19. Here's the bones Cave Troll! I painted some of the pustules red with white-heads on them...very gross and troll-ey. :)
  20. In a post Bones IV world there are lot more translucent miniatures in circulation. You may have had the same reaction I had, where I thought they were neat, but had no idea what to do with these things. Well, today was the day I decided I was going to try a few different experiments with painting these things to see what would happen. I did try an experiment once before with some purple translucent modes from bones 3, where I put a black wash over them. I was not happy with those results. They turned out looking opaque black with purple highlights from a distance, and translucent against a light or if you looked real close. Not a strong enough effect for table play. So this time, I did a bunch of research (mostly on this forum) and was told about using a clear coat and ink to add definition and maintain translucency. Looked good in the pictures, so I thought I would try some variations on that. First thing I wanted to experiment with was testing something I read here that said something to the effect of "the clear coat actually makes them more translucent, because it changes how they reflect light" so I thought I would try a matte clear coat and a gloss clear coat and see how they compared. The following are a very light black ink wash (from the Reaper Ink triad) and then Tamiya X-22 gloss clear (on the left) and Tamiya XF86 gloss matte (on the right). These models were not very translucent to begin with, but both coats did really make them appear more clear. The gloss was very shiny, had a distinctive wet look, and makes the model look like a clear piece of hard candy. The matte coated model appears to let about the same amount of light through, but is less reflective than it was before I coated with anything. With less reflection the model looks a little less ethereal, but also less like a plastic toy. I decided that I didn't want wet looking spirits, so I decided to go with a black ink wash and the matte coat. Here are those results: Much better than my last attempt, which were only transparent when held against a light. They are still reflective, but less than out of the box. I also tried a red ink instead and it had a very striking effect of red against the blue (the colors didn't blend at all like I thought they would) but it wasn't what I was looking for, so I washed it off. Here is a comparison of a painted and unpainted model: So really, I would say not painting them at all is totally viable. I like having the details show, but if they are ghosts, maybe it is okay that it is hard to see without taking a very close look. I also did a matte coat on some crystals (no ink) and it improved the translucency greatly, though it is hard to capture in a photograph. I learned I prefer that matte coat to clear, (but both are cool). Inks work well, where standard acrylics did not last time. Clear coats do make them more clear. and they transparent models look ghostly and cool already, so painting them isn't giving you that much really, if they are only intended for table play. maybe this information will be useful to someone. I wish I could have found it all in one place when I was puzzling over what to do and what to purchase.
  21. Hello forum, wanna share with you my last paint: the bone version of Angel of protection; this mini lacks a lot of details, both faces are blooby , so I've chose to speedpaint her, then I'll buy the metal version as I really like the sculpt and I want to give her justice! :P As you can see not a perfect job, there are also some paint spots on the wings... but whatever... Hope you like her anyway, c&c welcome as always! Thanks :)
  22. I needed a nothic so I made one! I used the mortar gargoyle, cut off the wings, used paperclips and greenstuff to make the spikes, and greenstuff to redo his face and eye. He's a little goofy looking but I kind of like him! Maybe we'll get a real nothic in Bones 5!

    Flail Snail

    This mini made the difference on whether I was going to go for the Fan Favorites expansion. For some reason, I really liked the original Flail Snail in the MM. Never actually used (or encountered) one in a game, but the concept is so out there that I had to love it. This one I had trouble getting the shell to look organic. I tried a lot of different colors and treatments (most of which resulted in the shell spending time in the Simple Green...). Could have been the color choices, I guess?
  24. This is a Bones Crystal Golem I've painted (just a few inks and quick drybrush) to be used as a proxy for "Ice" character in Rumbleslam games.
