Here are some Reaper Bones skeletal warriors that I made for my Dungeons and Dragons campaign. I tried out some new techniques for weathering the shields. I thinned out some paint for the swordsman for an oxidized look and I used weathering powders on the spearmen. I really like using the weathering powers and can't wait to try them on armor and tanks.
Hi all, I just keep plugging away at the classics! This time, a Tom Meier elf from Ral Partha, with sword, shield and bow. I tried to go for kind of a woodlandish color scheme, greens and yellows, so don't know how well I succeeded in that. Photo came out a tad light, but in any case, hope you all enjoy!
Guilty confession: the Anhurian soldiers may well be my favorite models Reaper puts out. Simple men-at-arms, they have the world weary air of soldiers down in the muck and grime, grimly doing their jobs in hopes of making it home alive. I was one of several noisy advocates hollering for Anhurians in Bones plastic during the last Kickstarter, and when our wish was granted I knew they would have to be some of the first - if not the first - minis I painted when the Kickstarter delivered. And as luck would have it, I also had some primed metal Anhurians laying about... So, here we have our round-shielded soldiers, ready for war. I used a modified version of the instructions from the first Learn to Paint Kit - the metal one, not the Bones replacement - for these guys, taking advantage of paints and techniques that weren't provided for. Flesh Wash and Armor Wash instead of making my own paint and ink washes, HD Dragon Blue with a Payne's Grey wash rather than Sapphire Blue with a Walnut Brown wash for the clothes, &c. Since these are line troops, I refrained from attempting freehanding on their shields - it didn't seem appropriate, and to be honest I doubt I'd be able to pull it off. And here's a group shot with their brethren I painted from the first LTPK (and immediately after): And perhaps most importantly, here's what they look like without all of the zooming - at tabletop height, in other words. Thanks for looking!
I get occasional beta notices still from a previous employment so I decided to share. I do not endorse this game other than Perfect World also makes the Neverwinter MMO which is fairly nice.
