Not to long ago I found my various board games from the 80s and 90s and sadly some of the cardboard stuff was to damaged to continue. DragonStrike from TSR was one such game. VHS VIDEO INSIDE! LMAO! But I still have the plastic miniatures. And recently I grabbed EVERY skeleton I own to paint up. This included the Death Knights in the board game. There are three included with each board game and this is #2 of them. 1 and 3 are nearly completed and will be posted as well. They are painted the same way as this one with a couple of color exceptions. Reaper: Walnut Brown Spattered Gore Garnet Red Honed Steel Pure Black Vallejo: Panzer Aces Stencil Amarantha Red Dark Sand Bronze Neutral Grey Chocolate Brown Privateer P3: Cryx Bane Base Here's the photos: I didn't clean up the mold lines. These are all for gaming. The effort in painting the skeletons will vary as I work to add them to my gaming box. I painted the whole thing with Pure Black as a primer/basecoat. Then started in on the Stencil color for the bone color. Hitting the right side and the face as exposed bone. The mini has "sagging" bits of flesh or cloth or bandages so I decided to treat them as a former uniform and made the ribs of the figure the same color, originally Amarantha Red. I didn't realize it was a glossy paint when I acquired it so I mixed in some dark sand to lighten it and kill the gloss. The leather across his chest is Dark Sand, the shoulder pad is Cryx Bane Base. The helmet is bronze as is his gauntlet and left knee pad. The "skirt" is Spattered Gore. The scythe is Chocolate Brown for the handle, Cryx Bane Base for the blade with Honed Steel highlights. Spattered Gore was used on the spike on the helmet. Selective washing and glazing of Walnut Brown dirtied him up and shaded various spots. The base is a 1-inch plastic square with the integral base surrounded by toothpick pieces to make it flush to the edges and look like other bits of stone. While I like the paint job, I wanted to keep the base pretty simple. C&C welcome.
Hey, it's time for me to post my n00b pics. Pointing and laughing is OK, but advice is better. One big lesson from my first time: sealing is pretty urgent, apparently. Bare spots show up in the closeups on the first day. I'm a perfectionist, so I wished my freehand shield was better, but at the same time I was fairly proud of it... until I came here and looked around a bit and saw some of the awesome work other people are doing.
