  1. Labella DeMornay, Banshee from the first Bones kickstarter, This is a green translucent, and like all translucents I undercoated it first with Army Painter Anti Shine Matt Varnish, so the following washes would have something to adhere to. This is key to painting translucents. Also, make sure to use transparent paints, like inks and quickshade washes. Opaque paints will invariably ruin the translucent effect. The green tinge of the plastic will affect any transparent colours that are used, and so this must be taken into consideration. For her brown hair, I used Citadel Carroburg Crimson shade
  2. The following images depict a miniature of a female sylph or fairy in natura. I am not sure if these would be in conflict with the posting guidelines or not. Better safe than sorry. First picture Second picture Third picture Clear minis are best painted by undercoating with a matte clear varnish and then transparent paints such as inks. This mini has wings in vallejo pale grey wash before citadel carroburg crimson wet blended on drucii violet. Body in thinned old citadel turquoise glaze, hair and panties in army painter green ink. The
  3. A water weird is a water elemental that exists within / is bound to a specific body of water and that can give the heroes a nasty surprise when going for a wash or a drink. I made the mistake of using blue ink on this, which turned the whole thing too dark, which I tried to correct with drybrushes of lighter shades, but it seems I just made a mess of it. I salvaged it somewhat by dumping ancient citadel turquoise glaze on it and then gloss varnish to make it look wet. The basin was done with my basic green/gray stone combo. It ended up better than I first feared.
  4. I try to comfom to the posting title and tags rules as laid down by the high and mighty,..please let me know if anything need to be done differently. --- So, 2017 has arrived.Time to mess about with spirits. The first series of translucent Bones were made either in orange or in a bright greenish tinge, and it seems I only ever got round to painting one or two of the green ones. We can't have that, can we? As with all the translucents, the key is to prime the model with matte varnish. I use Army Painter Anti-Shine spray for this. After that I use mainly inks as they also
  5. An incredibly fast paint job, but effective nonetheless: Yes, it is actually translucent. This image is more backlit than the first. As for all the translucents, the key is to give the models a wash and an undercoat with Army Painter Anti-Shine clear spray, which gives the paints something to hang on to. (much like Lord Flashheart and Baldrick-in-a-dress's beard. Woof Woof!) For this one I chose to lay off the inks and washes, and gave it a couple of quick drybrushes with light blue and lighter blue. Evil eyes and teeth in the lightest blue, base and done. Only goes to
  6. Ghostly apparitions seem to be a thing these days. Here is the Bones Shadow Hound, made in translucent purple: Slightly reminiscent of "Attack the Block". The thicker the plastic gets, the less translucency the mini retains. Come to think of it, I probably should have shone a light through it from behind to show the translucency properly in the photo, but since I didn't this will have to do. It would not look like that on the table anyhow. At any rate, purple quickshade ink on the whole thing, followed by blue quickshade ink on the mane/shaggy bits and some red ditto
  7. As has been a theme this year, the minis I manage to paint will all count towards the resolutionary challenge. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. My earlier attempts at painting translucent Bones miniatures did not turn out very satisfactory, mainly because the paints and inks I used were rejected by the Bones material, and did not stick to the mini as I wanted, due to a lack of undercoat. And then I really screwed the pooch by using too-opaque paints. Oh well, live and learn. This time around I ha
  8. So every now and then I try something new, and fail miserably; Gah! So ugly! Take it to the city walls and kill it with a rock! Reaper Bones 77083: Medium Fire Elemental. I am not at all pleased with the result. This one was a bit of a struggle, and in the end, a failure. But I have learned some lessons that I would like to share, before taking a shower in my shame: a) Translucent Bones also need an undercoat of sorts. First Fail: I started out (after washing it) with yellow ink. -It did not really show, and just made a sticky mess of everything, But it did tint the model a bit. Afte
  9. As I mentioned elsewhere, I have been working on mounting my large fire elemental on a base incorporating an LED 'tealight candle' Up until today that has mostly been a matter of gathering the bits andmaking a plan. Today though the plan has begun to come together. Of course as I am writing this, I realise I have yet to take a picture of the base by itself. Oh well,next time. Here it is though, showing the elemental sitting on the base (mounting points haven't been added yet) giving an idea on how it's going to look.
