I was inspired by the thoughtful comments on my last post to give another Bones a go -- again, painting with Americana Acrylic craft paints. I didn't prime this figure but found that the purple, yellow and red base coats, which I thin with flow aid, went on very translucent and the white plastic shines through, so it needs another thin base coat before shading and highlighting. But then I tend to do that with miniatures primed white anyway, as I am usually not in a hurry. I am thinking of putting on a base coat of grey acrylic on a bones to see if that helps. The part of this miniature I like least is the sword -- it's crooked, for one thing, and seems disproportionately big for the figure. I worked at getting the mould lines off and it was worth the trouble. Just takes some getting used to the soft plastic. I was definitely influenced by other recent posts of this figure (thanks!) but tried not to be too derivative in the end. Cheers. EDIT: added two cropped photos, as per request.
