  1. Howdy, Jazz hands? Kev! P.S. Spirit Fingers!
  2. I'm enjoying seeing the threads from the folks who are showing off what they are doing with the bones - it's a great way to see new techniques and different ideas for painting or converting these minis. So, I'm adding my own here, I hope it's useful :) First, I've posted this before in a thread dedicated to The Good, The Bad, The Craft Paint, but I wanted to demonstrate what I've been doing: The TL;DR version: I've just taken this hobby back up after about 25 years away from it, and I've been mostly dry-brushing, using cheap craft paint, cheap brushes, and cheap glue, for tabletop RPG use. I guess I'm more or less "speed painting" these, I spend two or three hours a night painting a couple up, at the rate of about one an hour. I'm hoping to achieve a level of quality as good as, or better, than normal for mass-market pre-painted plastic minis like D&D Miniatures. Criticism, complaints, questions, or feedback are quite welcome, and I hope there's something here that interests or helps someone :) (typos corrected)
  3. Howdy, Stoned... Kev!
  4. WIP of the Cave Bear from Bones IV's Prehistoric Expansion. I did not get this expansion so I recently picked up the Stone Giants and the Cave Bear from a gift certificate to Reaper Miniatures. When I saw this I had ear-marked this to do the base in a similar method to Frulla Krung's base. To achieve that I added the bark next to the integrated base as well as a pumice piece and then using baking soda and super glue I added the snow and ice. For Frulla's base I used the BSI Thin Insta-Cure super glue and baking soda. That made the ice easier to form over the rocks. I will prolly add that after painting as well. The base is built from cork with a plastic card (fake credit card sent in the mail) in between the top and bottom. It provides a nice rigidity to the cork. This Cave Bear will get a paint job of grays with a tan crescent under his chin and a tan snout. I've downloaded a ton of pictures of different bears to see where the colors shift along the bear to get a better color along the bear's length and over its head. Enjoy and Stay tuned.
  5. A nasty-looking fellow that looks entirely interested in carving off bits of your anatomy. I'm reasonably happy with his face and I think the color scheme works fairly well. Pretty much intended as a tabletop figure, he was quite a bit of fun to paint.
  6. I really like the way this turned out
  7. Finished this figure a couple of weeks ago, but never posted pics; While he's titled "rogue", I thought he came across better as a fighter, so I painted the armor metallic. Just tabletop standard, not intended for any sort of competition. Definitely needs more lining, especially on the belt.
  8. Part of Bones4, IIRC. Started him at Reapercon, didn't get far with all the distractions. Did some work on him over Thanksgiving but didn't get him finished enough to count for the paint binge. Started withe the bright purple robe and then wasn't sure where to take him after that. Teal happened. It worked. Just glad to have it done at this point so I can move on.
  9. I believe these were in the pack called "Sophie and friends", but I am not sure if they have specific names or product numbers. I am still very bad at painting eyes, and at the end I just let the wash go all in and leave them as is. Pretty happy with the rest of the painted result however. Cassiata is much easier to get the eye to show through though. Maybe because she was molded with a slight stiffer material and therefore more crisp molded detail? I ended with a kind of blood kniight colour scheme because I do not have reference to her intended design.
  10. Here is a recent Bones milk maid miniature, 03857. I worked on my glazing skills on this one. Being pretty new to glazing I like how the dress worked out. :) Quite pleased.
  11. I need a grick for D&D so painted up the chthon. He can also pass for a carnivorous plant!
  12. I painted up another ogre matriarch. she is so fun! This is Daisy, aka the Blonde Bombshell!
  13. I painted this miniature for my wife for use in a Starfinder campaign. She is a plantlike race, but fully armored up. So I went with khaki and brown tones to denote some of that 'natural' feel. It is a 80013: Nova Corps Female bones miniature.
  14. Ordered Ma'al Drakar to play the role of Tiamat in my Rise of Tiamat campaign I'm currently running. (Icons of the realm Tiamat is just to small IMHO) Having just received it in the mail I'm finally understanding the scale of the project I have Doomed myself to. Lol I was wondering if people had tips on mold line removal for pieces this large, what you suggest for Gap filling between all the assembled pieces, should I prime before assembly, and if there is a best way (or horribly wrong way) to pin all the pieces together.
  15. I finished my Leisynn conversion. Took ages, especially with a new baby boy in the house. That said, I am fairly pleased how he turned out. I changed the entire front and head area of the miniature and gave him a more sensible staff. I think contrast could be increased overall and the subtle freehand on his robes was difficult. I will need to practice more with future minis. The illumination in the book turned out ok, but I came to the limits of my current abilities. It is based on a medieval illumination. Anyone can guess what it is? One hint: the horned one is involved. C&C very welcome.
  16. Hello again forum family, I keep my purple period rolling on :D This time wanna share with you my version of Eilluvasheth. Beingi n my purple phase the dominant color is purple, and what's better than a gold armor to complement it? So I've tried to paint it in NMM to challenge me as NMM is out of my comfort zone. Still I'm trying to figure out where to place the shines and to maximize the contrast, but in the end I'm pretty happy of her, also considering that this lady is full of tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiny details Also i'm trying to pump the shadows instead of the hi-lights to maximize the purple contrast, just to avoid it to look pink. Hope you'll like her :) Now, nipples are covered in armor, but to avoid mods to delete the pics, I'll link the front one. Hi-Res Front Picture Hi-Res Back picture As always every c&c is more than welcome. Thank you for watching
  17. 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 per faction possible. The Ral Partha kobolds have a more simian or canine face compared to the more reptilian face of the Reaper models, but I’m still going to fold those into each faction. The Adventure calls out a Cleric (Red) a Ranger, (Green) and a Sorcerer (Green). Those are the only ones with specific art, and I have models representative of each present without need for modification. Also, I am not planning to add to the bases at all. And I want to finish all of this in about a month (unlikely)! Wish me luck!
  18. 'Tis the season! I posted this a while ago before is got paint on him. Santac'Laus has featured in the Christmas one-shot games I've run for the last couple of years (and this year is no exception). He's gone from villain to lovable (but weird) friend, who rides a manta-ray-shaped sleigh, pulled by a team of beholders. If you're one of my players, please don't read the spoiler! The hat, sack and present were all made with green stuff. The snow was made with snow powder mixed with water effects.
  19. I painted this guy up, despite having eyes on Gale Force 9's Behir for my personal use. Decided to go ahead and liquidate it in a certain auction site, but so far, no takers. Ah, well. It's still a nice looking mini, so it doesn't hurt to have one around until I manage to finish painting the GF9 Behir... Comments, recommendations, and suggestions are appreciated.
  20. So this is fun, because I can show you folks the Christmas presents I'm working on, so it's like I get to give them twice. Anyway, here's my take on her, really enjoyed going for a winter feel.
  21. What's better to start my KS Bones topic than Mr. Bones himself ? (bigger pics on my blog : click the pic to go there) (click on the pic to view more) (click on the pic to view more) (click on the pic to view more) And some treasure/objective tokens with Bones bits and various other stuff (Alkemy, Oathsworn Miniatures, GW, and even Ex-Illis) :
  22. So here's CavePerson number two, and I've got two more to go: and here is is hanging out with his other painted buddy: So sooner or later, I'll get the other two finished and then more prehistoric happiness to share!
  23. hey guys, here is a little conversion about the mercenary mage ; Leysynn. The original magic staff has been removed for a simple one (more natural for my mage), made from needle and some wire mixed with glue. The figurine was unbased and cut a little bit to be more mixable with my 28mm collection. So he lose his feet and the end of his long dress. hope you like him Cheers Eric
  24. I painted these guys up from Bones 3 over a year ago, but finally took pictures of them so that I could sell them on a certain auction site. Got $25 for them.
  25. I painted these guys at least a year ago. I don't think I've ever had a use for Yetis, so I figured I'd go ahead and sell them to recoup some of the money I spent on Bones 3. I only got around to getting them listed on a certain auction site a couple of weeks back, but I did managed to sell them, so that's pretty solid.
