  1. 94003 Razor is the tiny chicken walker guy with no arms. Store Link 94004 Assassin is a standard mech guy with non-symmetrial weapon pods on his shoulders. Store Link 94007 Wight is a big running CAV with square pods and long arm-guns. Store Link Also, having just looked these guys up on the kickstarter page they (and my Spectre from before) all belong to the yellow ankh-dagger faction, which is a nice coincidence in case the rules ever come out. (cough) Usual prep: Filed off (some) mold lines, boiled to straighten things out, washed with a soapy toothbrush, rinsed, dried, and stuck to bottles. On my last/first CAV, sticking some of the bits to the bottle was a mistake, it made it hard to paint, and especially went bad with the varnish at the end. To combat this, I switched from poster-tacking on bottles to impaling them on sticks. The sticks are skewers or something, for food I guess, but they work better for this than I expected. They originally had pointy tips, but I just snipped off enough of the pointy end until what was left was just a bit smaller than the peg-hole, so it would go in far enough to be held by friction. I can set it in the bottle (Weighted with coins) when I need to set it down. For the arms (and smaller sticks) I used binder clips, it holds it securely and I can set it down without it toppling over. I'm a little worried about it squeezing the peg too much, but I figure bones are durable enough it shouldn't be a problem, especially if I get these done within a week or so. Which is my goal, get these done before Bones II arrive. To 'prime' I slathered on a coat of unthinned Reaper 09065 Grey Liner. I think I'm coming around to the liners, they go on easier than unthinned Walnut Brown and don't seem to have a problem sticking. Not much to see just yet.
  2. Bobby Jackson's Darkshade Raider. Thought this mini was so cool; had a beast of a time painting it. But yeah. Still love her motion et al. Also turned into my first messing around with basing, such as it is. Saw this stuff post-Christmas at Hobby Lobby, all marked down, some Santa's Village kind of stuff I guess, and thought it'd be useful for something. Didn't buy it, though. Then my wife went back the next week, saw it marked down even more, and snagged it for me. I married very well. Anyway, it's just a roll of felt-y plasticky whatevery stuff. I disassembled all but the top layer with the actual paving stones and then just glued it on, cut a hole for the tab, and bam. Democracy. Or something. More crappy pictures (still the same batch as before with all the trouble I was having), and of course poor painting. But a lot of fun. Thanks for looking!
  3. I think we got this years ago from a friend. After much looking, I finally identified this guy, I found him in the Citadel Spring 1986, Mr Abdul El-Crud. The miniature had a pretty bad paint job of Testors enamel paint on it, so I decided to spruce him up some.
  4. Started painting this one up today to practice shading and highlighting. I read in one of the tips and tricks threads about using liner for primer on Bones...I am sold. It makes it so much easier to see the detail without obscuring any of it. So far the face and hands got a basecoat and the cloak got the basecoat, shading, and some highlighting done. I am going to keep working on the cloaks shadows/highlights some more tomorrow. I may also go a little darker on the skin so that I have some room to highlight without making the face too bright.
  5. Hi all, this is my first post on this forum and I wanted to share my progress on the CAV bones early bird rewards. So here they are: #1 Tiamat: #2 Cougar One is reposed in a more static stance. #3 Assassin #4 Razor #5 Specter #6 Wight One is also reposed (I'm not a bit fan of the running stance for those ones). #7 Halberd (in a quick and dirty speed painted camo) ************************* I also stumbled accross the templates to build a Hercules Dropship in foam core, and I knew that I had to make it. (It was a fun project with my daughter). Here it is fully assembled: And then with details added and a lot of airbrushing: I think it looks quite cool and makes a nice backdrop for my CAV: Comments and suggestions for improvement are welcome.
  6. Figure: Karick-Dar, Apprentice / Zargun, Assassin (body/arm) Sculptor: Sebastian Archer Manufacturer: Guild of Harmony Scale: 30mm Material: White Metal WIP Thread if you are interested For my purposes, this is Sansulves the Bladebound/Kensai Magus who I painted up for one of the guys who I play Pathfinder with. Sansulves is a CN Tiefling and I was asked to paint him up in black/red with pale skin and red eyes. I have to say I really struggled with the face on him, the shadows and the pale color were hard for me to get to where I was actually happy enough with them. Without further ado, I present my finished project. Comments and Critiques are welcomed, thank you for looking!
  7. So here are four Bones minis my D&D group picked out for PCs. I have to say I agree that the soft details make Bones less than ideal for PCs and important NPCs. Good for mooks and big monsters, though. Anyways, here they are. I need to get some Testors Dullcoat; my current matte spray is too shiney on Bones. Too bad this figure was discontinued; maybe we'll see it in metal. The details were quite soft on this figure, but it came out OK. I started out painting the cloth on this dwarf in blue, but then saw that was what every version in the gallery had. So purple. This one looks more indigo in person. I think my camera must have some setting to shift away from violet. Need to fix the staff, too.
  8. Pretty quick paintjob of Reaper Dark Heaven Blue Orchid Assassin (SKU 2588). I matched the color scheme with the evil cult I had painted up earlier. Edited to add SKU to title and tags
  9. This is a Bones figure I painted in about 2 hours for a D&D character. My goal was to get a decent-looking job done, and that's it. Nothing special. It is marketed in the Reaper Kickstarter as a "new Bones" figure. It looks just like Kellen, Nobleman Adventurer, but with a hood. I couldn't find an SKU for this exact figure, though, since it's not available yet.
