  1. Gig mini today, with one of the biggest minis i have ever painted : Mossbeard from Bones 4 ! The studio was even too smal for him ! The blacksmith is here for scale.
  2. Tackled my first big guy, Mossbeard Treeman! Since you guys love photos I'll add some progress shots in the comments :) First take on the beard, but liking the new version much better. Also a basecoat shot :)
  3. Tomorrow when there is better light I will try to take some better pictures. For now here are some blurry shots at my first attempt from my bones 4 haul. I have never tried any flocking before, and I made a huge mess. Also I am still pretty new to painting (a couple of years, but infrequently) so if y'all have any criticism (even if it seems like common sense) I could use any tips I can get.
  4. While I love the Mossbeard Treeman figure from the Bones 4 Kickstarter, it always bothered me a little that his arms, as sculpted, grew from narrower at the shoulder to thicker at the wrist. This just looked unnatural to me since both branches and arms tend to grow from thicker at the shoulders to thinner near the ends. So this week I began working n revering his arms, so they would connect to his body in a more natural, to my eye, arrangement. I began by slicing off the existing external connector pegs. This was made easier by soaking them in boiling water for 30-40 seconds (As Ed Pugh suggested to do with the Chicken Hut legs on a recent Reaper Live), after which it was a breeze to slice right through them. Test fitting. I then glued the pegs I had cut off back into the holes they were intended to go into to full those holes. After the glue was set, I drilled some holes in the shoulder connections to peg them with sections of doweling. After that, I glued the hands to the new wrist joints. My next step is to blend the hands to the wrists with some greenstuff, and then I'll glue the arms in place.
