Quick little 'paint' job with craft metallics over permanent marker on a cheap toy. Mostly done for some practice. 120mm x 95mm* MDF oval base. Classic DOOM imp shown for scale. *Found out AFTER custom ordering a bunch of these ovals that I was 1 MM off of the size I wanted... 120mm x 94mm oval, the base for enormous 40K monsters.
Someone, somewhere during Bones 3 asked if Sharpies would work on Bones minis. I have been using Sharpies to label my Bones on the bottom of the base, so I knew they would work, but it got me wondering - could you do an entire Bones mini with Sharpies? The answer is a qualified yes: This was done with a Red and Brown Sharpie for the demon, and a Grey one for the base during our D&D game this evening. The two biggest issues I've seen so far is that the the recesses are hard to get to with a standard Sharpie tip, and it has a glossy finish. BTW, the glossy finish is far more noticeable in the photo than in person, because it's washing out the detail. My current concern is how well it will wear. Update in a few days. I think I'm going to give it a wash of Army Painter Strong Tone, then see what it looks like then seal it when I'm done.
