I tried painting my first bones black figure recently, and I’m running into some paint chipping issues after light handling. I base coated the mini with vallejo black acrylic surface primer, used mostly vallejo model color paints, and then varnished with multiple coats of vallejo polyurethane matte varnish, all of which I’ve used on prior bones models together without issue. (I do have lots of reaper paints too! Just didn’t use them here) You can see the chipping on the ogre’s knucles. I’ve touched up and re-varnished that and about four other high spots maybe three times in the last two days- I really want to just be done!!! Any ideas on what I can do to keep this paint on? Thanks!
Hey Reaper peeps, I've picked up my first Bones figure, the Ogre Chieftan and I'll be shooting video of the entire painting process and posting it here via my youtube. Here's the first video: Now, that's just me ramblin' on about the mini and why I'm shooting video on this project without any painting, so if you're only interested in the painting parts, just skip this intro here as it's just a monologue and I tend to go on about my favorite subject, minis, if I have a platform to do so. I'll be posting a video once a day, about 5 times a week until this project is done. I'm going to go into detail about everything I do on this mini regarding the paintwork, all filmed in HD here in the studio and I'll try to be as verbose as I can be about whatever it is I'm up to while painting this guy. Sometimes in painting videos, the painter can get pretty quiet, I'll try to keep to words flowing to make it so you're not just literally watching paint dry. I'll learn as I go but that's my plan. I'm not aiming to do a tutorial this is more of a step-by-step looking glass into my method for tackling something like this in my way. I will explain what I'm doing as I'm doing it but I won't be going into basics or anything. So if you like stuff like this, stay on board as there should be something worth watching here when all is said and done.
So here it is. It's not the 20th where I am, and maybe not where you are, but it's 9:30 am in Tokyo and Reaperinos are worldwide. I figured waiting til about now is midway fair for everybody. This Group WIP is for the Reaper Ogre Chieftan (Bones # 77005; DHL # 02832; or LE # 20014 if you're doing a repaint for some reason). ONLY this miniature (diorama add-ons are ok). It has no set duration and no sign up. If you're just happening by now, feel free to join in. I don't have mine yet, so I'll join in when they show up. Some basic ground rules, suggestions, ruggestions in case you haven't been keeping up on the "group interest" thread: 1. Try to limit your posts to a reasonable amount per day. I suggest two as maximum, one early and one later. You may post as many pictures as you like in those posts, within reason (so, like, not 200). This way you have plenty of space to talk about and show off your daily work and everybody gets the opportunity for fair coverage and attention. 2. This thread should be kept for pictures and updates only. If you want to chit chat or comment on somebody's work, please use the "group interest" thread instead of here. That way nobody's update will get lost in a pile of regular posts. Use the "Like" button as much as you want. Group Interest Chit Chat Thread Link: http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/45603-group-wips-interest/page__view__findpost__p__632203 3. ALL participating Ogre WIP posts, with the exception of finished pics you want to put in Show off (when you finish, you can post the finished pics here as well if you want) should go in this thread. There's a lot of people in on this, and a lot not, so we don't want to overwhelm the forum with individual threads. 4. As a general guideline, be respectful of your fellow painters, play nice, and have fun. This is not a competition, it's open to everybody, and if somebody decides to paint their Ogre hot pink and orange, that's a-ok. If you want tips, or to give tips, use the other thread and link to the post in question. Respect and fun are the watchwords here. I think that's everything. If you have questions, PM me and I'll answer as soon as I can. If something comes up I didn't think of, then I'll update this original post. Updates will be marked ETA (Edited to Add). Annnnnnd . . . STARTO!
