  1. This week I also completed the three Barrow Warden figures from the Bones II, Expansion I set. In looking at the figures, and thinking about how I wanted to paint them, I got the idea of them being from the barrow they guarded, and the image of them being buried in their armor... I had the thought of how old rusted iron looks after it's laid around in the dirt for a while. So the idea hit me to paint them entirely in a decayed rusted scheme. Then I thought I wanted to do more than just give them plain skeletal heads, so I got the idea to give them some sort of magical looking green glow-y heads. I thought the brown rust, and the green heads would look good together. For the complete write-up on the step-by-step I used for painting these, you can see the full article here on my blog: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2015/06/barrow-wardens-bones-ii-figures.html
  2. Two of my favorites from FD's Infernal Minions Kickstarter. Mr Muller really outdid himself with these two. A blast to paint. WIPs and whatnot up on my blog.
  3. Hello everybody. I just joined the Forum today, and besides posting a pic of my latest painted figure, I wanted to make an introduction. Some of you know me from my "All Bones About It" Blog where I have been posting my efforts in painting all the figures I ordered from the Bones I Kickstarter, and more recently the Bones II one as well. I know a few of you have linked to my blog here before, and I thought it was about time I joined up here myself. :) I've been a gamer and figure painter since the 70's and some of you may know me as well as co-author of the "G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T." set of Victorian Science Fiction miniatures rules, as well as co-author of the Pirate skirmish rules, "Blood & Swash, Thunder & Plunder". Anyway, enough about me, on to the figure... This past week I completed figure 77145, the Mummy Captain. This is the third figure I've completed from the Who's Your Mummy set from the Bones I Kickstarter (The other two can be seen on my blog). I hope to complete the final figure from that set for posting next week. For a step--by-step on how I painted him, you can visit his entry on my blog: Mummy Captain
  4. The female ghost for my campaign.
  5. Ghostly summons, 77095 Crypt of the Vampiress, 02990 Altar of Evil, 77139 Female: Victim, (P02580C) GW Garden of Morr Scenery and skeletons. Large stuff. Some of this has been posted in separate threads before, this is when the thing is combined. Going to be an entire undead army, and pride of the shelf in a while. Edit: Now with pics. :D
  6. Also uses the base of the Ghostly summons, 77095. Put this one together from the bits of two different throne sitting minis which I found with the figure finder. Spent ages on this one. Was very difficult for me. Thought I'd have to strip it of paint and start over again, but I can't be bothered. She's got paint in her face the thickness of my thumb soon, as I could not get the eyes and skin tone right. Given up on her now. :P
  7. Tried a few different styles for these guys. I prefer the two on the left (if you ignore the horrible basing job I did on them).
  8. I have a veritable army of Skeletons, thanks (in no small part) to Bones 1 and 2. [bugs Bunny] eye-ronic, ain't it? [/bugs Bunny] Ahem... where were we? Oh... I also have ghouls, and zombies, and a plethora of other undead types that need painting. So, here they go. Most of the Bones 1 Skelebros are painted (I have three spearmen - below - who need to be painted up, and one archer that needs to be sealed and based). These guys aren't getting anything resembling a display paint job - basecoat, highlight, dip in Quick Shade, seal with matte sealer, put on plastic base, DONE. But, still, here they are - spearmen from Bones 1 metallics - these are the Skelebro OGs, and are equipped to match - adamantine blades, etc. They get a little more detail than the Bonesium skelebros, but not much. Bones 2 Skelebros. Unlike the Bones 1 skeletons, these are getting more individualized looks - well, as much as a bunch of bones can, anyways. The Bones 1 are a cohesive(ish) unit, with ranks and battle plans and stuff. These are individual corpses raised by the Necromancer. Elite skelebros - again, a little more individual detail, and a little more attention paid - but, I've got a half-dozen of these dudes, so, not too much attention....
  9. Had this fellow finished for some time. Hard to take decent photos of it since it's so big: I used this blue and purple snake as my inspiration for the color scheme:
  10. Back in my teens, I used to finance many of my Warhammer purchases by commission painting for other people. I got to paint some cool stuff, and bought a hell of a lot of Space Marines (most of which are still unpainted to this day(!) One of the kits I painted for other people was the stuff from the MD8 Skeleton War Machines box set, which was the eighth in the Machineries of Destruction range. As with my old Dwarves, I only ever had a couple dozen of the old Undead models, and sold off most of them back in the day, excepting a few (exactly as with the Dwarves). Since Marouda's "building" an Undead Army for KoW (as fast as I can paint it for her) and I've been following Subedai's blog for a couple of years, I've gotten inspiration for various bits and pieces. Recently, he showed off his Plague Cart, which triggered something in my pea brain and sent me to eBay looking for some of the cool old Undead kits I painted back in the day. While I haven't been completely successful so far, I've managed to get a few pieces at least. Here's the first of them: The Skull Chucker (also alternately known as the Screaming Skull Catapult before that new TK kit took the name). Yep, there are some "mistakes" and missing bits there. First and most obviously, the crew are "wrong", and it's missing the Skull Ammo Pile. It was sold on eBay with two loaders and a spotter, but not the bonehead who fires the catapult. Still, the price was ok, and shipping from the UK was decent rather than exploitative (both real concerns when you're here in Australia) so I figured "good enough" and got it anyway. There was a ton of old superglue encrusted on the launcher arm and frame, and the arm was glued slightly up at an odd angle. Also a fair bit of old, old flash and extruded bits of lead to clean up. No big deal though. I used a bit of greenstuff to get a good bond when reassembling, and then noticed that both braced were missing from the kit. D'oh! Now luckily I'd just bought some undead Tomb Kings stuff off a guy locally, and I'd literally just received the bag of bits that he'd "forgotten" (cough) to send out with the other stuff a week earlier. I thought it would be worth checking through to see if there was something appropriate in it that I could use to fix up the Skull Chucker. Now the bits bag was actually filled with cool bits (it was a big reason why I bought his stuff). and it included several of these ...banner poles(?) After cutting them down, they turned out to be a great fit, and the socket cutouts with little embossed skulls on the joins worked perfectly as replacement pieces. I should make up a replacement Skull Ammo Pile. It was one of the first things I thought of, but I completely forgot about it until now. Shouldn't be too difficult, at least. They look like they're supposed to be there, so as fas as I'm concerned, Job's a Good'un. For the paint, I stuck to Marouda's chosen Undead palette. Bone/Black/Brass/Iron with deep Red and some Aqua (verdigris) as the spot colours. My style of painting bone might be a bit bright to be properly realistic but it pops nicely on the table. The crew provided me with some stuff to work on at work last week. I'll have to prepare some new models to work on for this week's lunch breaks now. It's like an extra deadline each weekend. Eurgh. Undead Stone Skull Thrower and Orc Bolt Thrower. Back together for the first time in a long time. It's nice to put the recently-completed war machines side-by side for a shot. Back in 3rd Edition WHFB, I used to regularly summon Skeletons as allies for my Orc and Goblin army. They often just stood in lines breaking up the line of sight between my Orc units so they wouldn't kick the crap out of each other via failed animosity rolls. Now that's something I don't miss in KoW!
  11. Been desperate to start on my Wolsung stuff, unfortunately most of it needs to be based before I can start painting, and I can't base any of it because I'm waiting on some basing stamps (to make more awesome cobblestones than I can create with my current sculpting skills). But I did find a couple I could mount on corks, Ms. Suess and a Ghoul (both from the Ven Rier faction):- Currently waiting for the Primer to fully dry, so it'll probably be tomorrow before I make any more progress.
  12. The villainous Primus Death by Enigma Miniatures, been after him for a couple of years but he always seemed to be out of stock. You can find his WIP thread here Had great fun painting this guy, and I'm really happy with how he turned out. Comments and criticisms are, as always, very appreciated.
  13. Got this cute little fellow in the mail the other day. Never painted anything this big, and wanted to show my progress and experiences. First I glued him together. Was really surprised about the fact that it wasn't actually necessary to use glue, yet I did it just in case. Then applied some green stuff in the cracks. The black stain on the base is me testing the rumor about washes not sticking to bones. And that was true. Luckily the rumor about mixing dish soap in the paint, to fix it, was also true. Never painted with dish soap before, so that was.. interesting. So then I covered him in a basecoat of gloss varnish, before I painted white over the green stuff, and gave him a nice wash of dark, purple ink. Once that was almost dry, I started adding a dark blue wash: Painted in the flesh, bones and eye. Also applied a drybrush of dark blue: One more drybrush and pondering on how to continue the wings: Edit: This capable young lady will be the rider:
  14. Here's one of the things I was working on before I came out to [CLASSIFIED]. Enigma's Forgotten Warrior. (Liberal use of Pumpkin Orange in his man-skirt.) As always, C&C welcome!
  15. This zombie comes from Enigma miniatures, Zombie horde (5):
  16. And the last one of the Undead Regiment. The Mummy Warrior. Another great vintage mini from Grenadier ( noticed I'm fond of those did you?).
  17. The Champion and some of his warriors ( I think I posted one of them already separately.)
  18. And the archers. These are from Mirliton ( I think). They are slightly larger than the original Grenadier ones
  19. And more Zombies ( they come in large numbers, can't help it ).
  20. Again two more ( tired yet of this Undead invasion?). Ghost is from Harlequin, Zombie from Grenadier.
  21. Two more members of the horde. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60959-undead-regiment-in-a-swamp-mixed-manufacturers/ The one with the twohanded axe is from Grenadier. The one with axe and shield is probably from Harlequin, Though I'm not exactly sure. He's been around for years EDIT: I found him, He is actually from Mirliton. Newer cast.
  22. Three more from the Undead Regiment. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60959-undead-regiment-in-a-swamp-mixed-manufacturers/ These are from Otherworld Miniatures. Very nice detailed mini;s. I painted the snake symbol as a freehand again. And again reds and or purples as the Vampire Queen's Heraldry. Enjoy ( I hope).
  23. The Command Group. Carrying the Battle Banner. Mummy Captain, Ghoul Drummer and Zombie Banner Bearer.
  24. One more from my Undead Regiment, http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60959-undead-regiment-in-a-swamp-mixed-manufacturers/ The Barbarian Zombie, Made by Grenadier.
