Finally started painting this bad boy up. It's also my first experiment with greenstuff, used to fill some gaps. Doesn't look too horrible, I don't think.

Base on the bone was Ushabti Bone from Citadel. Worked well enough, especially with some Agrax Earthshade over it. Cloth was done with a mix of three drops Intense Brown, two (small) drops Sun Yellow, and then given a wash with Carroburg Crimson. Yeah, Citadel's making me really lazy with washes. Not gonna lie. I likes it. Leather was done with Ruddy Leather, and then Oiled Leather on the edges and in lines to make it look old. The khopesh is done in old bronze, with an Athonian Camoshade wash. Gives it a nice tarnished look, though you can't see it in the pictures too well. Various wire-looking contrivances I did in Copper from the old Pro Paint line. Picked up some of those a week ago, and I've been itching to use them. Wood done with a mix of three parts Rainy Gray, one part Intense Brown, and then given a wash of Drakenhof Nightshade, to give it that aged, weathered look. Chains were done with Tarnished Steel, with an Agrax Earthshade wash to make them look a bit rusted. More on rust in a bit.

Not much to say here, except that you can see the chains and wood a bit better here. Peeking out from behind his knee you can see the head of a morningstar. Done in Tarnished Steel, with a few highlights in Pure Silver.

Here he is from the back. The hammer was done in Blackened Steel, with Old Bronze inlays.

Here's his nice collection of heads. That orcish looking thing is painted with Orc Flesh (another old Pro Paint pot), with Reikland Fleshshade over it. The chainmail was done in Tarnished Steel, with a drybrush of Pure Silver for highlights, and then some Agrax Earthshade to age it.

Here's his rusty old knife. Hilt was done in Old bronze. The blade was done in Tarnished Steel with Pure Silver highlights. I then gave it the Earthshade wash, and used Rust Orange Ageing Powder, from Back 2 Base-ix. Next time, I'm going to do a bit more study in how rust actually forms. This was just kind of haphazardly slapped on. Still, doesn't look too bad, I don't think.

 

You'll notice, of course, he's unbased at present. I haven't decided how I'm going to base him yet. Part of the issue is that I don't have any bases large enough (though that's easily fixed). A larger issue is that his integral base isn't even. His right leg isn't quite long enough to have the leg set in the model while having the two base pieces fit properly. So, I'm going to have to fashion some way of leveling it. Likely I'll just make something out of Greenstuff. Rocks and so forth. Hopefully it'll look decent enough. But that's a project for another day. For now, I'm calling him complete for the day.

If you could, would you mind posting a pic with a normal sized mini standing with him? I've been wanting to see the true scale of this particular model for years.

 

Whoops, forgot that one. I actually have one taken, but I forgot to resize and post it when I got the others. I'll get it done as soon as I get home.

It was difficult not to buy several Bones versions, an iconic sculpt.

 

And a great paint job!

 

I didn't pledge for any of these. Wanted to, didn't think they'd get much use on the playing table. I may have to reconsider when they come out...

That poor, brave, nameless Anhurian has probably seen more action than any other Reaper miniature in their history.

 

Loc-Nar: "Come closer, I will tell you tales of my evil in this world and worlds beyond worlds."

 

Anhurian: "The last glowing green ball that told me that wound up trying to take my soul. I'm leaving."

 

Loc-Nar: "No, but wait! Waaaiiittt! I can tell you horrors of your other selves in other worlds . . . aren't you even a little bit curious?"

 

Anhurian: "Nope. Leaving."

 

Loc-Nar: "In some worlds . . . you have fought dragons; in others . . . you have fought giant skeletons on a countertop; and in yet others you are trapped within an invisible shield, imprisoned with gigantic bottles of paint . . ."

 

Anhurian: (rolls eyes) "I told you, I'm not interested. Why don't you take off and go find somebody else to bother, like maybe an astronaut who flys around in space in a classic 50's hot rod while 80's heavy metal music plays. Yeah, do that. Good luck finding something like that, Loc-Nar! Ha ha ha ha! Stupid green orb."

      He was a leftover from a group of pathfinder mini's I primed but forgot to finish from my last posting.

      And Goblins are just little Orcs, right?  What better way to celebrate Orctober than little Orcs?

      Another day, another set of painted miniatures from Bones V.

      I figured if they were a main culprit for the shipping delays, I should paint the Dragonfolk early on rather than letting them languish in a box.
