  1. So while I was doing the insane Mousling project, I painted up Mr. Bones (along with Garrick AKA Sir Forscale) to test out how the Matte Finish would lay down (I was going to test through an airbrush, but I got short on time, so it just ended up straight from the bottle brush painted, maybe next time haha). This is the finished paint job, though I do not think I had hit it with the Matte yet. As always, C&C is appreciated. Overall, I was really happy with how he turned out.
  2. Here is a painted up Mr. Bones. I am gearing up to do a paint job on a paladin for a character I am playing in a 5e D&D game. Wish me luck on that one!
  3. Doing some prep work for the next batch of paints I'm set to do.
  4. I've been extraordinarily busy with work and my weekends have been nearly as busy, so I hadn't been able to make the time to do much more than lurk here on the forums and I certainly hadn't had any time to paint. However, I am very much trying to change that and fortunately I have all of you to inspire me! I wanted to ease myself back in with something fun to paint without too many fiddly details going on, so I wound up with my friend, Mr. Bones. Here he is with the standard Brown Liner all over and Linen White drybrushed: Then I decided to start with the cloak. The basecoat was an even mix of P3 Iosan Green & P3 Meredius Blue with just a touch of Brown Liner mixed in: Next up was shading, which I did with a mix of the P3 Meredius Blue and Reaper Twilight Purple: And then I did some highlighting with various mixes of Reaper Jade Green, Reaper Moth Green & Reaper Linen White: I think he's looking pretty good so far and it felt really, really good to get some paint on a mini again. Hopefully I'll have the time to work on him some more this weekend and I'm thinking about carving out some time on one weeknight every week to paint as well. I didn't realise until I uploaded the photos that I missed a little part of cloak between his belt and the handle of his shovel. How typical. As always, comments and critiques are very welcome! I'm thinking about doing a green glaze (probably the original basecoat mix) over the whole thing to tie it all together...what do you guys think?
  5. My second miniature ever, and my very first KS mini! It's just a rat, but I'm quite happy with the results. My WIP is posted here. (Note: the last picture was taken before I'd tidied up around the toes on his back feet; the top 2 pictures are the ones that were taken last.) Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  6. Hello! So I received my Kickstarter package a week or two ago and after enjoying the rather later mass of miniatures I decided I better get painting. My girlfriend isn't a gamer and wasn't really into miniatures, but I surprised her with a decent order of paints and all these Bones and she was down to paint! I started with the L2PK 1-5 for paints and then added in another 10-15 to try and round out some of the colors. I realized that I don't really have a grey though so I will be ordering some more soon. She has a good amount of experience and talent painting with acrylics on a canvas medium (and I've tried once or twice as well) but other than that, this was the first attempt at painting a miniature for both of us. I never started the L2PKs, I really just prefer the Bonesium over metal I think. It was hard to figure out what miniature to paint first, we looked over and through the pile and found a few simple miniatures, some of the hooded elves and townsfolk looked easy enough, but in the end we decided what better miniature to start with than the Kickstarter mascot himself, Mr. Bones! I was very thankful to find that I ended up with about 8 Mr. Bones miniatures when I only ordered 2 or 3, so it seemed perfect since we would have extras and would get to paint the same miniature. -We cleaned the miniature. -Picked our colors. -Started painting, I used a #1 W&N 7, she used a #0 Da Vinci and a #0 W&N 7, she wanted a smaller brush though so I might be ordering a 00 or 000 even. -I only basecoated and then painted on Army Painter Quickshade soft tone. -She painted basecoat, then painted on shading (we didn't thin our paints this first try) I think it looks a lot better than mine. I don't think she did the highlighting step, we plan on working on the L2PK and our shading and highlighting and drybrushing, but didn't get into it for this try. Then she thought it needed some gloss finish, I don't have any gloss sealer, just the AP matte and the sealer that comes with the L2PK. She ended up using the Reaper brush-on sealer. She liked some parts of mine better so she then used a little bit of quickshade to help with the smaller details like the fingers and stuff. I don't think I need to point out who painted what, because it's fairly obvious I think, lol. Thanks for your time and interest, any and all comments are welcome! We looked through the show-off forum a bit and she liked it so I think she'll be joining at some point lol. We also looked at Anne Foersters paintjob of the metal version Mr. Bones is based from and she couldn't believe the detail lol. If anyone else has any Mr. Bones pictures we would love to see them as we couldn't find any anywhere!! Pictures were taken with an iphone 4 with and without flash. No lightbox or anything fancy, I think they turned out decent enough, but we will definitely look into making a lightbox as we get more into the hobby and pile of bones!
  7. I figured that I had to start my Kickstarter painting with Mr. Bones so that he could help me watch over the rest of the paint jobs. I have started him and will update with pictures at the end of this paint session.
  8. This is my first completed mini from my Kickstarter. I started the Group WIP thread for this guy last night, but he only took about two-three hours to complete total (with setup and clean up times factored in). Hit my with critiques.
