    77113: Eldritch Demon

    Hey gang! Thought I'd post the Eldritch Demon I painted recently. I decided to take a departure from the iconic green flesh mythos monster look and try a more orangey-jaundice flesh tone. Also used a yellow/orange mix to highlight the cool patterns covering the skin. Also, used the MSP Adamantium Black to give the base a neat volcanic/space rock look. I did keep the tentacles a traditional pink colour. Just seemed to fit with the whole new flesh, soft and squishy, feel (like a sea creature without its shell?)... Cheers! :) -E.E.

    77494: Dire Bear

    I've been trying to do a bit of painting every day, since RCon is coming up so soon. I have a problem with long-term projects, though, so I need to occasionally work on something quick and sweet in between. Sometimes I need to finish something to keep me motivated, you know? Tonight's lucky candidate was this bear, whom I love. His name is Randall and he likes standing in fields. Anyhow, enjoy!
  3. This is what I'm working on at the moment. I had to start over a few time due to issues with the sculpt. Before I even got started I had to, well I didn't have to but I chose to, fix some of the more obvious problems with the sculpt using Apoxie Sculpt. Some of the mail had no detail at all, so I add it in, and there were some just terrible mold lines. I finally just decided to say forget it and move on with the painting. I was going for more of a grey skin, but ended up with a greener skin. I'm ok with where it's going, but on the next Orc I'll adjust the skin tone. Sorry the pics are a bit wonky.
  4. This figure is next on the agenda. I cleaned up mold lines, cut off the “base” part of his integral base, washed him and mounted him on a Reaper 1 inch base.

    Mushroom guy - Bones 4

    I'm working up the nerve to start the larger mushroom characters from the darkreach expansion with this little guy. I really wanted to see what a bright colour scheme would do for the figures, playing on the idea of a brightly posionous mushroom. This is the result.

    Darcstaar vs. Kobolds

    This is my most ambitious attempt to date. A mini-campaign I’m running some people through calls for many kobolds of varying colors and classes. I had 12 Kobolds from Bones I, the 4 pack in metal that those were based off of (03064), the metal Leader and Sorcerer (03024), the 12 awesome new kobolds from Bones 4, and a 7 pack (I may have gotten a freebie, I thought I bought a six pack) of kobolds from the Ral Partha TSR Official D&D 2nd Edition line, stamped 1989. That’s a whopping 37 figures. I want to paint tribes from all 5 chromatic factions, and want to have as few duplicate poses per faction possible. The Ral Partha kobolds have a more simian or canine face compared to the more reptilian face of the Reaper models, but I’m still going to fold those into each faction. The Adventure calls out a Cleric (Red) a Ranger, (Green) and a Sorcerer (Green). Those are the only ones with specific art, and I have models representative of each present without need for modification. Also, I am not planning to add to the bases at all. And I want to finish all of this in about a month (unlikely)! Wish me luck!
  7. Since Callie is coming to a close, I have been preparing the Oxidation Beast. I have one in metal also, so I will paint both together. I had some 40mm hollow, round lipped bases that seem like a good fit. I used some styrene model train cobblestone for one, and sculpted dressed stone tiles for the other. I plan for one to use the 5th Edition Monster Manual color scheme (Bones) And the metal one to follow the Pathfinder Bestiary 1 color scheme. It has a red with black stipple color scheme.

    77283 - Necromancer

    Hello forum family,wanna show you my last work, the Necromancer the bones one; she got way less details than the metal one, but it is good to try new techs. So, why do not try to refine my NMM and new skin type? And this is the outcome: Had to paint the low edge of the blade, as the sculpted one is too small, and I tryed some basic reflection, pretty happy of the result :) Hope you will like her, and rememmber than any advice and criticism is welcome!

    Altar and Crypt

    Oddly these are the first two models I painted up from Bones 4. It just sorta happened. Added a bit of 'stuff' to the altar, the books alone seemed a bit empty.

    Kyphrixis 77565 for a birthday present

    My niece has her birthday in a week or so. We were up visiting so I thought I would bring up a dragon I created for her. I also had gotten the copper and alchemy set from scale 75 and kaphrixis is a copper dragon so... Here is the finished piece. The body was done with copper from scale 75 mixed with some Jaquards dry copper pigments for effect. The wings were aquamarine mixed with the copper and that was the effect I got. I thought the upper wings were gorgeous Then I asked: where would a dragon keep his spellbook? Answer: tatooed.to his wings of course! So enjoy! I think I will try this again and see if I can duplicate or improve the results. I especially want to work on some tattoo effects. I would ask for critique but the metal effect just doesn't come through the camera well. In real life the lower scales are significantly darker than the upper scales (decayed metal vs new copper) but it just doesn't carry. And she got the mini today and loved it!

    Viridus - Autumn Monarch

    ******EDIT : Jump to Show-Off thread Everyone, meet Viridius. He's a hefty boi. No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see. I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look. Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him. So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before. One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work. The question is, what to do? Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course) Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape. The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled. I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water. I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business. So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history) I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.
  13. This thread is shamelessly ripping off a wonderful idea from our goblin friend @buglips*the*goblin from this thread way back around Bones KS1 days. The intent of this thread is to have lots of people post WIP shots of their Bones Sophie paint jobs. Here are the minis to pick from (SKUs to be updated here soon): From Left to Right: KS2 Trollslayer Sophie 77370, KS3 Sophie the Sage 77491, KS4 Innkeeper Sophie, KS4 Small World Sophie, Sir Forscale (Note that Sir Forscale is just that, for scale. He is not part of this for WIP purposes.) There is no time limit or set starting date. If you come across this thread long after I have posted it and want to join, feel free. Quick ground rules: 1. Only Bones Sophie is allowed. There are four of them (unless I somehow missed one). 2. Try to limit yourself to a few posts a day, though. No reason to flood this thread too much. (Unless this doesn't pick up interest and it is just me, lol). 3. Watch the side conversations. Ideally this is primarily WIP pics and some direct conversation to help encourage or guide the painters. 4. If this picks up lots of interest, we will use one Show Off thread as to not overwhelm that thread too badly. 5. Play nice. This is meant to encourage people to paint. I am hoping we get painters of all levels of ability. Encourage people to join in. The more the merrier. Feel free to PM me with questions or concerns. I will try to update this thread with any clarifications or whatnot. Alright, now let's get this party started!
  14. This past week I painted the Djinni figure from the Fan Favorites set. When I first saw this figure in the Kickstarter, being a child of the 60's and 70's, the first image that flashed in my mind was Jeannie from the classic I Dream of Jeannie TV show. I knew that this was the color scheme I wanted to use on my Djinni figure. :) I made a couple changes to the figure. First, I separated the lamp portion of the integral base so I could mount it on a different base; and Second, I mounted the sword the correct way as it is shown in the concept art, not upside down and left-handed as the figure comes. Here's the write-up on my Bones Blog: Djinni Painting Article

    WIP 77109: Fire Dragon

    Now that my Bones 4 order is here, my backwards brain decided it's finally time to paint the fire dragon I've had in my box of shame for a year and a half! I don't think I can claim that I'm "new to painting" anymore, but this is my first dragon and by far the biggest mini I've attempted thus far. In order to actually paint more things I like instead of saving them until I've practiced or become good enough to attempt them, I'm trying to adopt the mentality of trying at least one new technique with every mini I paint. Hopefully this will get me out of my comfort zone and into some new styles and skills. The focus of this guy is going to be blending, both wet and feathering. I'm still getting used to the process of documenting my WIPs, so if anybody has suggestions or requests (pics of my working palette, color recipes, what have you) please let me know. Lots of pics beyond the spoiler!

    Cultists 77517 & 77518

    Tabletop cultists for my dnd game. I wanted them to have a look that I could either use to be sinister and evil, or even 'good' cultists that have gone too far...the leaders feature red and blue while their subordinates feature green and blue. I chose to do metallic masks of varying metal types and shades. My goal was to work on the speed at which I paint things like NMM so that I can get results without agonizing as I might for a competition piece.

    77609 - Bonesylvanians - Lou

    Hello forum family, want to share to you my last work: Lou AKA chibi-Cthulhu Tried a purple contrast on him, the outcome is pretty nice, I think. The base is made sclupting some clay balls and cutting it in half to make the acid bubbles painted with fluo colors from Vallejo; then I've sculpted some tentacles and added to the base to make it more dramatic. A coat of glossy sealer and I call it done. Hope you like it: As always every comment, advice and criticism is super welcom!

    Baba Yaga's Hut Bones 4

    This was the must-have from Bones 4 for me! I cut off and modded the legs and created the base with apoxie sculpt so the hut can be placed on its own or on the legs. The paint scheme is "chicken" ;) I can't even remember all the colors I used on this thing, it was a mad mix of Reaper browns and golds, Pokorny terracotta, homemade washes, and I pretty much just kept going at it until I was happy. I hit everything with a matte varnish except several coats of gloss varnish on the window glass.

    77581 Mudgullet

    This is the biggest "miniature" I've ever painted. I would not have even looked at it if someone hadn't asked me to paint it. It was a great challenge and a great learning experience. I love his slightly goofy "intoxicated" facial expression.

    More of my Paint jobs

    Here are some more of my bones minis painted with various brands of paint Reaper, GW, Army Painter Sku:77362 Sku:77378 Sku:77329 Sku:77068
  22. Hello all! @Echoside_ challenged me to do this! I attached the colors that were rolled and a pic of the dragon lined. Sorry for the short post, but it serves purposes. Cheers! -Z
  23. Trying to paint the new Bones 4 Roc with the coloring of the American Kestrel. You can see some of my printed off sample images/notes. I was mainly taking the photos so I can recall what colors I am blocking in sections, so if I get distracted (typically), I can go back an easily pick up the colors I need. As I was taking the picture, I thought I might try my first WIP, so here it goes...
  24. Hi just wondering if all the previous bones miniatures will eventually be cast in the black bonesium or will they be kept in the original bonesium only?
  25. Here is the next figure on the list. Callie. I think it’s funny that episode 1 was Cassie, and right next to her is a figure with almost the same name. She had had a weird straight warp to the lower part of her bow. I boiled that out. It has stayed in the corrected position for a month now. This is after Brown Liner. It looks like an arrow coming out of the quiver, but strange it has no fletching....From the front, maybe a finger?
