  1. The Cleric in my D&D group leveled up and acquired the Spiritual Guardian skill. He needed a model to represent his Guardian. Honaire looks so cool, but he didn't have a shield. I found one in my bits box, and painted the symbol of his chosen Deity, Chauntea. I loved painting this because the simple palette left more room to just relax and enjoy the work.
  2. I got these guys painted sometime last year, but I'm just now getting around to showing them off. They were spray painted with a glow in the dark green spray paint, which I was expecting would tinge them with a spectral look from above, and it didn't work, so I just sprayed the whole mini, then inked them, dry brushed them, and then did the painting on the bases and weapons and such. I'm pretty satisfied with them overall, though I think the eyes aren't as obvious in the photos as they should be. Oh! And they glow in the dark a bit, though that's hard to photograph...
  3. A pair of Bones figures quickly painted as part of my annual Thanksgiving Paint Binge. Based with white primer and then a layer of one of the Citadel white contrast paints. Went over it with a watered down blue contrast paint, then drybrushed white. Picked out the face and bones with watered down black ink. I think they came out pretty well for almost no effort and they can be used in any game where you need a ghostly or summoned figure. I'm tempted to get more and do them in red as fire spirits.
  4. Mark Kay didn't seem to make many sculpts for Reaper, but he made two Ghosts, and they are ghastly in every sense. They are incongruous, evocative, weird. Here's 02363. The Apparition. An unheimlich, eerie figure. Dread. The Uncanny Valley is only part of the unease engendered; in many of the Victorian ghost stories there is also a strong element of social anxiety. The enigma wants something, it is *owed* something, or there is an obligation from someone which must be fulfilled, and there is an almost insurmountable communications barrier. This is the fear of the Past that Won't Go Away, the dread of shirked duties, the fear of inescapable generational obligations, the sins of the fathers visited on their children. Look at this big-knuckled hairy revenant! It reminds me horribly of an illustration in a book that used to frighten me as a child. What does it WANT? Probably blood. Probably YOUR blood! His other ghost, 02314, is equally mysterious but tells a very different story. That Ron Perlman jaw, that shallow forehead, the monk's robe! Less pvertly threatening, but every bit as unheimlich. The terror of a ghost isn't really so much what it can *do* to you, anyway. The fear of ghosts is based in that they ARE at all. And here seems as good a place as any to put a retouched Pistol Wraith from Warmahordes. Similarly a robed skeleton with accessories that tell a story--the story of a ghost...with GUNS! What now?! I love this sculpt partly because of the questions it raises. Why would a ghost with a gun be any more threatening than a ghost without a gun? Is a ghost gun as good as the usual at punching the soul out from a body? Better? Do incorporeal bullets ignore cover?
  5. I recently painted a pack of passed-away pea-green pirates that you can practically peer through, and posed the party for some pictures. Pithy painting prose on the particulars posted for perusal: http://allbonesabout.blogspot.com/2019/05/ghost-pirates-bones-4-figures.html I ordered an additional set of the pirates so i could have a unit of 10 for gaming purposes.
  6. This is my first attempt at object source lighting. I'm still pretty new to this hobby, so any advice is appreciated!
  7. Hey, long time no post. I've been painting up some spooky minis for a Curse of Strahd campaign. Painted these two and finished last night. I started with an airbrush, but ended with a whole lot of brushwork and glazing.
  8. This figure is the Reaper 3718 Ghostbride in metal. I wanted to do some white practice on her, and she is probably my most artsy figure, considering she has a purple base and not some mundane colored ground. I tried to have her be very white, with the white being on top of different base colors, but at the same time have the purple come up from the base. Mostly happy with her. I had planned on having her hair be blond, but the dark hair just popped so nicely against the pale skin. As a bonus, she did see some game time in our last session as the ghost of a young woman killed by her jealous fiance. Her father became a vampire to try to bring her back to life.
  9. These are from the Ghosts of Midlam Manor Kickstarter. I love these sculpts and I just got an airbrush, so I wanted to try sort of a blue zenithal ghost effect. They are more blue than the camera shows, I'm still getting used to the photo booth and lighting. (Plus I should probably use the real camera instead of my phone.) Overall I'm happy!
  10. My Lurien ghost figure done. I started it during a teaching session by MaGie (NL). Finally finished it. Learn alott about transission, and tried some new skin tones. Happy with the result. Great sculp!!
  11. This miniature is from a Midlam Miniatures kickstarter. The lack of highlighting and shading is intentional since I was going for the single-color arcade look. I had to put some putty over the sculpted eye holes to get a nice flat surface for the cartoony eyes. Overall I'm quite happy with Inky! This is for the video game theme portion of the RP Challenge.
  12. I did a quick paint job on a female wraith for my D&D games. I didn't do a lot of detail on her. I wanted her to look a little glowy and creepy. I think she turned out pretty well and will be adequately scary!
  13. While you enter the dark corridor leading in a gloomy room, you feel your strength slowly drains from your arms. You realize with terror that you are not alone here. Shadows dance around you and dark grimacing faces appear to torment you... Here's a translucent 77369, Shadow, Dark Heaven Bones sculpted by Dennis Mize.
  14. So after trying out a verdigris effect on the bronze shield of a Skeletal Swordsman I thought that the mixture would also work well for a ghostly figure minus the isopropyl alcohol. enter 77007 Ghost mini. Mixture: 1 drop naga green, 2 drops Dragon blue, 1 drop dragon white, 2 drops water. If needing to speed paint I found that a light wash leaves enough of the white plastic showing and could negate having to go back with white highlights later. Here I just did a single base coat. Think I will do one more base coat and then move on to shade, though i'm not sure what i'll use to darken it as i think black might be too dark, mountain grey maybe? then i'll use some maggot white for highlights. In hindsight i forgot to shave the mold lines in my hast to see how the mixture would look on the mini
  15. Painted this ghostly ghoul for my players to fight this weekend. The purple highlights on the cloak didn't come out vibrant as I had hoped, but I think it still looks pretty good. I was really happy with the rusted armor, although it didn't get captured in the pics very well. The sword is supposed to look like it was glowing blue, but I got lazy near the end and sort of skipped it. I'm planning on going back some day to add that effect, but for now I'll consider it done. I would appreciate any critiques and advice. Thanks in advance!

    Love painting stuff like this
  17. Mold lines, it seems, are my weakness. Fortunately, this model, which I absolutely love, had lots of wrinkly bits that I could use to try and hide them. :-)
  18. Whipped this Ghost King up while I was taking a break from writing up an adventure. Blue is my favorite color, and I decided to dive in head first with all of my different blue paints. This is the first time I have tried adding high lights on the cloaks, and I think it made a huge difference. Critiques and advice welcome as always, especially advice on high lights. Thanks in advance!
  19. I used the same combo of copper verdigris wash and maggot white on these. For some reason any pictures I tried to take of other angles didn't come out well. Perhaps they're shy.
  20. This is the Sea Ghost from AD&D module U1: the sinister secret of saltmarsh. It will hopefully be used in my group's upcoming D&D pirates campaign set in 1600's Jamaica. Its layers will be separable, with each surface being a sort of game board for each deck of the ship, from forecastle/poop, to main deck, to cargo deck, to bilge. I'm going to try to pin the layers together so they don't just fall apart by using the mast and rudder to keep the layers aligned when they are stacked. It is made of 3/4" polystyrene insulation sheets, cut, stacked, and sanded down with a belt sander. In the end it will have paint and probably balsa wood details. That's the Barnabas Frost mini that I posted in the show-off forum standing on the deck in a few of the photos.
  21. My Bones III Kickstarter fulfillment arrived a couple of days ago, and I've been happily sorting through them. I've engaged in all three Reaper kickstarters so far, but I doubt that I'll do another — it's not that they're not a good deal, but there's always a very, very long wait for them to arrive, and they've all been very heavy on the character figures, of which I really do have an ample supply. I mainly want the monsters, and it'll be simpler just to buy them individually when they eventually appear in the shop. I chose this one to start the painting with, mainly because it would be very quick and easy to do, and in fact it only took about twenty minutes. It probably would have taken longer if I'd actually removed any of the mould lines, which I kind of forgot about in my enthusiasm. I don't know what its SKU is; I couldn't find it with a (fairly brief) search in the online store.
  22. 1st time poster longtime lurker :) Its my 1st time working on a ghost mini and I am looking for some advice. I and using the white basecoat then verdigris technique to try and paint this guy up but I feel like there is something missing from it. I also feel like the I need to do something with the center hollow part on his front side. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks in advance all!
  23. So, when I first tried painting this, I made tolerably decent base for it, coated it with Tamiya Clear Green, and observed that the details were totally unclear. So I highlighted it with yellow. And it looked .... AWFUL. And therefore, I put it on the Shelf of Shame, from whence it has been reproaching me these past three years. "Fiiiiniiish usss," the ghostly damsels kept whispering to me in spooky undertones. "Nope," I said, and returned to all kinds of other projects. "Awwww," they would say, and disspiritedly return to moping in their eldritch green flame. But tonight, I finally decided that the only solution was to disregard the translucent plastic and paint the ladies as if they were any other mini. Thus, I give you a Ghostly Summons. Pics linked for nudity. Pic 1 Pic 2 Pic 3 Pic 4 Pic 5 Pic 6 Pic 7 Pic 8 Pic 9 I had to wipe the whole thing down with a wet brush to remove the surface dust first. >.> I think the skin tone on the green one came out best. I have no earthly idea when I'll actually use this mini for anything, but at least they're off the Shelf of Shame.
  24. Practicing spookiness before taking a crack at Mansions of Madness ghosts.

    Was asked to paint this up for a friend who loves Japanese stuff and is planning on running a game based around Asian stuff. Not sure of the company, they just handed me the mini. The base I had was a teeny bit smaller then the actual mini. So I moved the limbs a bit to make it look like it is creeping off the base. Actually really like the effect. Kind of wish it was my mini to keep.
