Red vs Blue Bones Bugbears

Recommended Posts

As part of this weekend's speed painting endeavours I finished the 2nd and 3rd of my Bones Bugbears. The first one got a Back-2-Base-ix Celtic Ruins base and as I didn't want to rebase these two I gave one red trims and the other blue.

 

Painting approach;

  • No Undercoat
  • Basecoat in appropriate colours, Saphire Blue, Blood Red, Oiled Leather, Russet Brown, Shadowed Steel, Mahogany Brown, Tanned Shadow.
  • Wash the whole mini with Black Wash.
  • Retouch the Shadowed Steel to get some sharper highlights.
  • Apply highlights of Tanned Shadow, Tanned Flesh, Tanned Highlight to skin.
  • Paint nails and teeth as you do the skin starting with Tanned Flesh, Tanned Highlight & final highlight with Linen White.
  • Paint eyes with Linen White, Pure Black and outline with Mahogany Brown.
  • Drybrush Hair areas Intense Brown.
  • Paint base green and edge pure black, flock.
  • Seal (to be done this evening now that I have enough models to make it worth doing).

This takes about 2 hours (plus drying time) to do, adding another model or two to that process wouldn't slow it down noticeably. The slowest process is the base coat and skin just due to the paint changes and the care it takes to get paint in only particular spots.

The slowest part is getting the base coat done well, that's easily 2/3rds of the painting time. Choose the right colours, typically a shade brighter than your usual mid-tone and do the wash well and the mini is really painted for the game table. The extra highlighting just moves the overall standard up a bit.

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.
      Enjoy!

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
       
      It went better than I expected.

      I may end up doing a bunch of image dumps - I've painted a lot this year and maybe I should just post them in sets. 

      This one, though, deserves its own post, I think.  I painted up the Green Dragon Hatchling from waaaay back in Bones 2, showed it to my wife, and she made some suggestions - so here you have it painted up as a Swamp Dragon from the Discworld, as kept by Lady Sybil of Ankh-Morpork.  I gave them a collar and name plate, and since they're a tame dragon, I gave them a few chew toys, including a Rolly Ball just like Rex of "Snake Discovery," as can be seen here:

      It's Krampus time! 🙂
      So, the challenge here was to use the Holiday Paint Set as the main/core palette.  Which turned out to be a no challenge at all.  This figure is pretty much calling for a certain palette to be used on it.  Never the less, the fun has been had with this one 🙂 
      All sorts of comments are always welcomed!
