Judas Bloodspire, Vampire (Bones) (77160)
Chris Palmer posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingThis week I began the final 10 countdown of my Bones 1 Kickstarter Painting project, by doing the last of the Grave Danger set I had left to paint: Judas Bloodspire, Vampire. Not a fancy paint job, just getting him table-ready to use in my Frostgrave collection since I've been missing a Vampire figure as listed in the game's random-encounter Bestiary. For his full step-by-step painting entry on my blog, see: Judas Bloodspire
Some of you may remember that last December I converted an extra Darkrasp figure, that I had traded for back in 2013, into a Santa Claus themed wizard figure. Well, this week I finally got around to painting the original Darkrasp, Evil Priest, figure that came in the Dark Heroes set from my original Kickstarter pledge; and once again I did a conversion. A bit of train of thought now... As I looked at this figure and pondered how to paint it, I considered how most of the painted examples of this figure that I have seen have been done up in dark colors: black, grey, brown; and I decided that I wanted to do something different. So, I thought about light colors, and immediately I thought, "How about white?". As I considered white, I thought that with his flowing robes white would make him look almost like an angel; which led me to think that, well, if he was an angel then he'd be The Angel of Death, which would be kind of be a cool figure. If I was going to sell the angel idea he would need wings though; and where would I get wings? So I started pawing through my unpainted Bones collection, remembering that the Lesser Demons set had a bunch of winged figures in it. And, voila! I found what I thought would be the perfect set of wings there among the Lesser Demons: The Vulture Demon I was able to pry the wings off the figure, and I held them up against the Darkrasp figure to see how they looked. I couldn't believe what a perfect match they were! Not only did they seem the perfect size, and were feather covered; but they also mirrored the symmetry of the figure with the left wing raised like the left arm, and the right wing extended to match the position of the scythe. So, I used my Dremel with a small drill bit to cut a slot in Darkrasp's back, and glued the wings in place with Gorilla Superglue. â€‹And here's the painted result. I really like how this conversion turned out. I think he makes for a very formidable angel, and I think the all-white paint job looks really good on the figure.

This past week I started the Dark Heroes set from the Bones 1 KS, and painted the two knights: Mangu Timur and Ragnaros, Evil Warrior, from that set. I didn't attempt anything too fancy on them, just did them up for tabletop use. â€‹For the full step-by-step painting blog entry, please see: Mangu & Ragnaros
Zalash, Dark Elf Assassin (77123)
Chris Palmer posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingThis weekend I completed Zalash, Dark Elf Assassin, from the Bones 1 Kickstarter "Dark Elves" set. I thought I would take the opportunity to try an experiment with this figure; painting him all in black, and simply using drybrushed highlights to give a hint of color. A always, C and C welcome.
Vaeloth, Hellborn Paladin (77120)Bones
Chris Palmer posted a topic in Show Off: PaintingThis week, I continued to work on the Bedeviled Set from the Bones 1 KS, and painted Vaeloth, Hellborn Paladin. I had some fun with his base, using a black crackle paint over some bright orange paint, which gives a pretty neat volcanic look I think. As always, C & C welcome.
