Not so much a "Show-off" as a "Hey, these things got some paint on them, and I'm tired of looking at them so they're done now." First up are the, uh...disco zombies: I'll be perfectly honest, I'm not a big fan of this particular sculpt, and it did not translate to Bonesium well (at least, the ones from the KS didn't; it's entirely possible the quality has improved since then). There were mold lines all over, plus some mold slippage as well, which made getting the primer coat of Brown Liner a little difficult. So, they just got a very simple basecoat+drybrush treatment, because I didn't feel like expending the energy to make them look any nicer. Colors used: (skin) 09084 Pale Lichen, drybrushed 09149 Moldy Skin (eyes) 09402 Heraldic Red (base) drybrushed 09086 Stone Grey (cloth, from left to right) 09419 Tropical Blue, 09236 Black Green, 09014 Grass Green, 09242 Carrot Top Red, 09240 Royal Purple I did find it amusing after I finished the guy wearing orange that he looked like he used to be wearing a construction jumpsuit. :) Next is two George zombies: I like this sculpt quite a bit, but unfortunately, since I was painting them at the same time as the disco zombies, their paint jobs were collateral damage from my meh-ness about the previous zombies. Same colors as above, except 09115 Ritterlich Blue and 09672 Briar Rose were used for the cloth, and 29830 Ruddy Brown for the hair. Not sure what I used as highlights on the cloth, I just grabbed a bottle at random of the right color in a lighter shade and mixed it with the base color. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
A little story to go with this one... I hadn't picked up a brush since I finished my last Exchange figure, which was near the end of last year, and my paint desk was buried with Stuff. I kept meaning to start painting again, but something always seemed to be more important, until Friday of last week, when Mr. Boot was looking through our Bones to find some appropriate minis for our Pathfinder game that evening. Him: *holds up the Hell Hound* This is perfect. If only it were black... Me: Black? I can do that quick and easy, I'll just cover it in Brown Liner. Him: Hm...can you make it look like it's on fire too? Me: Sure. *thinking I can just slap some orange and red onto the spiky bits* Him: I mean, like the skin is charred, but it's still on fire? Me: Hm... *ponders* Sure, I think I can do that. But I'll have to work on it during the game. Him: That's fine. So, in between throwing fireballs at things and trying not to die, I painted this guy: But wait! There's more to this story! After I finished it up and sealed it and had waited long enough for the sealer to dry, I handed it over to Mr. Boot, letting the other players know that I had no idea what this was for, only that he'd needed it painted. Not too long after that, we entered a boss fight. Against...yep, you guessed it, the hound I'd just painted. So, yeah. I painted the boss of the dungeon during the game, and I'd had no idea the whole time! It then proceeded to murder-ify all of us, but that was actually part of the story. We got better. It's sloppy and messy and not at all up to my usual standard, but I had fun painting him! I think I should have used more orange, though; the yellow kinda took over. Ah well. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
