  1. EDIT: I APOLOGIZE FOR NOT PUTTING THE PIX IN SPOILER TAGS...NOT SURE HOW TO. Good evening everyone! These are the first miniatures I have ever painted. I picked up the Bones Learn to Paint Kit a month ago or so and painted two of the 3 minis that came with it (the skeleton came broken) and then decided to pick up 3 more off of ebay and have painted 5 total to date. I was looking for a hobby and I stumbled across this site and read everything about minis and what not and decided to give it a try. I added the model #'s in the topic for the ones I remembered. The first mini I started with was the Armored Knight, followed by the Orc, then the Large Earth Elemental, Hell Hound and then finally the Pathfinder Dragon. Hoping to get some feedback on any/all of them as it would be much appreciated. Below are some pics, both with flash off and flash on for comparison. The only paints I used where the ones that came with the painting kit...some I mixed together or thinned out etc... I don't have a table to paint on (I'm not painting on my polished coffee table! nor do I have a fancy white background (or rather just some white paper =P) so I used a white shirt for the backdrop. Some things I noticed after I took the pics and along the way, these of which I still need to do, are: Paint the teeth on the Orc, paint the claws and wing bones of the dragon, fix the bone colored mark on the Hell Hound's left rear leg, eyes on the armored knight. Anyways, hope their good!
  2. Hi folks, my D&D group is still playing through Tyranny of Dragons (D&D 5E) and soon they will encounter a White Dragon. Other people have posted the Bones Silver Dragon as a White before, so here is my attempt. I painted the mini in April but I haven't had time to take pictures until today. I used a 65mm base, but I don't remember the manufacturer... C&C welcome! [edit] Updated the post with a larger first picture. Now you can see that I didn't do a proper job removing all mold lines... ;) [/edit]
  3. My take on the Pathfinder Red Dragon. I wanted to go for a temple ruin in the middle of the Jungle vibe.
  4. I've been a long time lurker and haven't been really good about tracking my painting, but I figured it was time. My current project is a Reaper Bones Red Dragon. So far, I have most of the base coating down (sans base and claws). I've been attempting a bit of wet-blending on the wings, but I think they need more work. Looking at the picture, I also see some more mould lines that could use some work. Overall, I'm pretty pleased with the progress. Colors used so far (my base is my darkest color): Body: Blood Red Wings: Dark Elf Skin triad Horns, teeth, etc: Bone Shadow Belly: Tanned Leather
  5. OK well it's time to try this again. Our last Kickstarter did not go the way we wanted it to, and we listened to out backers on why it did not work. We are now back at it again trying to get this off the gorund. This is a dream of ours and we are not going to stop till we get this thing on the gorund becasue we feel we have somethign very special here. So I want to reintroduce you to our Kickstarter MidKnight Heroes Season 0 Reboot! What is Reboot!? Reboot is where we went back to the drawing board and redesigned our idea. We changed for a set idea to a per miniature idea with our primary miniature Leonide as our main miniature. We added more value to you pledges and even redesigned two of our characters the was not very popular, Oda and Hanna. Our Funding level is much smaller, $2000 (Bare bones) that our last Kickstarter and we now offer free shipping to all US backers. Stop by and take a look and hep make our drream a reality! Our Miniatures will be sculpted by Robby Crawforth and Fancagne Didier and will be cast in metal. Our current Stretch goals: go to our website at www.midknighthereos.com to see all our stretch goals. Natakue and the MidKnight Hereos Team. "Thank you for supporting us!"
  6. So, I got this dragon a while back: The only thing I know about it is that it doesn't exist. Even my considerable Google-Fu couldn't turn it up anywhere. I picked it up on Noble Knight Games under the Enigma Miniatures header, and it was produced in the early 90s. I have recently contacted the current Enigma Miniatures to see if they are the same company that produced this mini. She's packaged as a Red Dragon, but with those ears and that nose horn, she more closely resembles a 1e/2e Blue Dragon; so that's where I'm going with her. I've got a bit more filling to do on her, the liquid greenstuff seems to have shrunk a bit since I did my initial gap filling. That's a 120mm base with a Reaper scenic resin Treasure Hoard vignette base and one of the Treasure Packs attached. Since she's a Blue, the sand (and non-treasure parts of the resin base) will be painted as, well, sand. I'm probably going to work on that part first, since the lgs will need curing time.
  7. How To Get Ahead In Dragon Slaying I love this lady dragon slayer's proud stance & cold hard stare, not one to pick a fight with I think! Apologies for the apparent shininess on the figure, I always give my minis a light Vallejo matt varnish coat which looks fine in reality but sometimes a bit dodgy in photos. Comments & opinions are always welcome.
  8. A Fire Dragon, painted up in fiery colors, with tan wings and underbelly. A truly classic color scheme. This also represents my first attempt at basing. It's pebbles, beach sand, and a bit of static grass pulled from a pot topper I purchased at a craft store, all held down with matte medium and a bit of earth color.
  9. As part of the 6 Month Mountain Reduction and Painting Challenge (#6MMRPC) I've decided that I need to take on some of the bigger minis in my collection, the ones I've been holding off on painting till "I'm better" and "can do them justice" since the only way I'll get better is by actually painting them... So, dragons. First up is Ebonwrath. I started it a while ago when I'd spilled some black paint, and needed something to use it up on. Aside from that, I hadn't touched it before this past weekend. This is what it looked like before I really got to work on it. Airbrushed. It's hard to see, but the wings, belly, and spines are now GW Dark Angels Green, while the body is Noir Black. The plan is to add in a bit of purple to the black, and lighten the green toward yellow.
  10. Alright, I'm still new to sculpting but I wanted to replicate something a friend of mine drew. Unfortunately after several failed attempts I haven't made too much progress. What I want is "this" What I made, is "this" I'd like some pointers and words of wisdom and maybe some instructional pictures to help me out with this project.
  11. So. I tried painting some minis without WIPs and found myself having a hard time keeping track of what and how much I had done. So I'm back, although these may be sporadic and really slow to update. We'll see. Anyhow, after painting a lot of tiny figures for the January Bones Beauty Pageant, I decided to move in the opposite direction and tackle some of the big figures from Bones I to clear out room for Bones II. So I am painting dragons. Five of them, if you count the Frost Wyrm. Each one gets its own thread, though, since I don't know how I'm going to progress through them. I'm painting each dragon up as inspiration takes me. I thought this one, 77108, the Shadow Dragon, looked slightly aquatic, like a river deity. So I decided to paint it up in cool, watery shades. Maybe like some kind of frog or sea creature. I don't know yet. Anyhow, first I put on a base coat of Reaper's Brown Liner, the paint which sticks to Bones like gangbusters, thanks to Buglips for the discovery, and then a wash of medium blue mixed from Phthalocyanine Blue and a little Titanium White. I don't expect the final dragon to be straight blue like this, but I needed to give all the dragons a distinct color scheme at the start since none of their wings are glued on yet and I need to keep them straight. The other dragons I'm painting concurrently are Deathsleet, Ebonwrath, the Fire Dragon, and the Frost Wyrm.
  12. And here's Mizuchi Mushu. I worked on my highlighting and shading with this guy, and tested out a marbling technique on his base. (Thanks, Siri!) I also worked with a color that's very difficult for me...yellow. His eyes are very deep set, and you probably can't see that they're green in the photos. Some of these photos are better than the others... As always, C & C welcome!
  13. Anyone have any advice on how to paint scales? I have a smaller dragon figure and I'm trying to paint the scales. However, it's not looking all that great... So some advice would be great!!!
  14. I have a bag of Secret Weapon skulls. I have tamiya clear red. All minis worked on for the spring/summer will have blood and skulls. Because I do what I want. Both from Bones I. Primed in green liner. I don't know if they will be green, but that is the color liner I used. Once again I will be attempting to use the Wappel method on both minis.
  15. The girl next door requested a dragon for her birthday, after she saw me give one to somebody else. I really hate giving away miniatures, because I feel my painting is not good enough for displaying to random people. But.. What can you do? :P Soo.. I figured I'd give it a go. Been working on these two on and off since yesterday evening: Based one black, the other white: The Valkyrie stood very low, so I sculpted a stand for her with a cork and some Fimo: Didn't fit perfectly with the ridges, but I think I can get away with it as a whole: And this is just about how it stands at the moment: I'd happily take some advice on base clutter. Something to make it more interesting.. I figured I'd just add some stones?
  16. Here is Bones Deathsleet. I fixed the ankle issue by pinning through the Bones Barrel into the base. He isn't going anywhere now.
  17. Spit Fire - a gold hating dragonling. The only surviving child of the Infamous Lava-wing. Lava-Wing was driven insane by a dwarf stealing his gold. The dwarf only a few ounces a every day or two, but it went on for years. The insanity was not so much from the theft but from the fact that the dwarf was leaving excrement behind in its place. After rampaging for years and destroying several dwarven and human communities Lava-Wing eventually caught up with the dwarf, but in his insanity was easily lured into a trap and slain. Spitfire has vowed never to collect gold. Oddly the dwarf responsible didn't much like gold either, as its procurement was rather painful for him. Neither dwarf nor dragon likes faeries either. Dragon: Bastic the Dwarf. L8 ranger, retired.
  18. Whenever I take pictures of my new paint jobs I try to get some snapshots of my older minis too. So here is Rafm 3721 Ice Dragon Yearling, painted in 1994. We didn't like the gaping holes in the wings, so we filled those with putty. You can see the not so great patch job in the photos. And here is Grenadier 9904 Skeletal Dragon sculpted by Julie Guthrie, painted around 1994. It had suffered some damage, so I recently glued it together and patched up the paint job.
  19. I saw this beast online and couldn't resist. This awesome piece is a dynamic dragon in flight being persued by a pack of angry velociraptors! I mean.. What is cooler than a dragon if not a dragon in flight being presumed by a pack of raptors? :D Assembly has taken quite a lot of time so far, haven't even started on the raptors! Hers a few pics... dragon vs raptors by kittykat23uk, on Flickr dragon vs raptors by kittykat23uk, on Flickr dragon vs raptors by kittykat23uk, on Flickr
  20. Got this cute little fellow in the mail the other day. Never painted anything this big, and wanted to show my progress and experiences. First I glued him together. Was really surprised about the fact that it wasn't actually necessary to use glue, yet I did it just in case. Then applied some green stuff in the cracks. The black stain on the base is me testing the rumor about washes not sticking to bones. And that was true. Luckily the rumor about mixing dish soap in the paint, to fix it, was also true. Never painted with dish soap before, so that was.. interesting. So then I covered him in a basecoat of gloss varnish, before I painted white over the green stuff, and gave him a nice wash of dark, purple ink. Once that was almost dry, I started adding a dark blue wash: Painted in the flesh, bones and eye. Also applied a drybrush of dark blue: One more drybrush and pondering on how to continue the wings: Edit: This capable young lady will be the rider:
  21. Alright, I'm putting this up here because I did in fact make the 3D model for this dragon and 3D printed him myself. I used "Sculpt"ris to design him and add in the details. I'd like to see what people think of the idea of using 3D modeling and 3D printing to make and test out masters of miniatures and 'if' this thing even belongs in the 'sculpting' section of the craft corner because it's not made of green stuff and I did not poke it and prod it with scary obscure molding tools. For a little back story on the character himself, this is one of my older characters named "Roal", his main feature that he's the over pampered spoiled dragon prince. A real lazy brat that roars about being 'fierce' and 'mighty' but due to his size and shape he gets no respect. I will probably have to keep on bugging Reaper in making a gluttonous fat dragon monster for my hero's to fight against in order to take his/her hoard, but until then I'll just use my dragon Roal instead. ((I was playing with the idea of having the players do everything they can to prevent the dragon from walking back too far or it's fat torso will get stuck in a narrow part of the cave, permanently sealing it off or not depending on if they let the dragon live. Anyway, leave a comment. I'd like to hear your opinions about this.
  22. Rescued this little guy out of a melt bin at Reaper HQ and thought he'd be something nice and small to practice basing on. Since I forgot April's resolutionary painting target was for 5 miniatures and not 4, I needed the extra one, anyway! This is my first experience with wilderness tufts and their ilk, and I'm still pretty new at this whole "greenstuffing a base" thing. Any suggestions? I'm not really happy with painting the edge of the base green, but the grass didn't seem like it would survive...
  23. Finally he's done! Finished! "On the coast of the vast sea there once stood a mighty kingdom, its walls of white marble shining in the gleaming light of the sun that would rise over the sea every morning to bathe its pearly walls. Great, colorful mosaics decorated every flat surface and fabulous ornate carvings were etched wherever possible But it was not to last...for one day, with the rising of the sun, there came a great wave. A leviathan of the sea rose from the raging froth and breakers, a horrendous skeleton! It was encrusted as if it had once been part of the sea floor, and this monster tore the city and broke its white walls. Upon its ruins he crouched, reclaiming land that had once been his, centuries before..."
